5 years for eyegouging assault

Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

ON the same day the federal government announced it will bring in greater restrictions for medicinal marijuana users, advocates of lessrestrictive pot laws also wrote their own message large, with a billboard in West Vancouver. For the rest of this week, drivers heading off the Lions Gate Bridge into North Vancouver will go past a billboard urging them to Join the Sensible BC Marijuana Referendum Campaign. The pro-pot lobby group SensibleBC is hoping the North Shore billboard will be the first among several in the Lower Mainland to get the word out in advance of a referendum campaign to decriminalize pot in the province. “It’s an effective way to reach a lot of people,” said Dana Larsen, spokesman for the group. Rather than take on the federal Conservative government, Larsen said his group has decided to target the province, through B.C.’s referendum legislation, to “effectively decriminalize” pot. He said in the United States where pot laws have become more liberal — Colorado, California and Washington State — it’s almost always been through a state referendum. The SensibleBC group wants to force the province to change the Police Act so enforcing marijuana laws isn’t a priority. Larsen said that’s not as outlandish as it seems. Since the introduction of

A five-year jail sentence handed to his attacker has done little to allay the bitter feelings of 70-yearold Ron Perry, who lost an eye in a brutal beating connected to a marijuana grow-op.

“I wanted to come and let him know I’m still thinking of him,” said Perry outside North Vancouver provincial court Monday, where Judge Steven Merrick handed the jail sentence to Paul Joseph Defaveri. “I hope I’m still around when he gets out,” added Perry. “Maybe one day he’ll be back here and I’ll be the one standing in front of the judge.” Merrick said Defaveri deserved a significant prison term for the attack on Perry, which took place over about eight hours in a North Vancouver bungalow in September of 2009. Defaveri, 51, was convicted in August of aggravated assault in connection with the violent beating tied to marijuana grow-ops on the North Shore. During the trial, Perry described in horrific detail how on Sept. 2, 2009, he was hit on the head from behind with a hammer, and had his eyes gouged with someone’s fingers. His attacker told him, “‘I’m going to pop it like a grape,’” Perry told the judge during the trial. See Victim page 3

last a lifetime For over six years, Dr. Rahmany and the staff at Skyline Dental Centre have been committed to providing you with compassionate, professional dental care of the highest standards in a comfortable and relaxed environment. To ensure that your smile lasts a lifetime, here are five reasons to see your dentist.

1 2 3 4 5 TO HELP MAINTAIN GOOD PHYSICAL HEALTH

TO PREVENT GUM DISEASE, BAD BREATH AND TO KEEP YOUR TEETH

One of the best reasons to take care of your mouth is that people with periodontal or gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease according to recent studies. Oral bacteria can enter the bloodstream, attaching to fatty plaques in the heart’s blood vessels, causing clots to form. Inflammation in the gums contributes to swelling in the arteries. Regular dental cleanings will likely reduce your risk of heart disease and strokes.

Gum disease is an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. If diagnosed early, it can be treated and reversed. Studies show that 85% of people with persistent bad breath have a dental problem that is to blame. Good oral hygiene is essential in preventing bad breath. If treatment is not received, a more serious and advanced stage of gum disease may follow, leading to tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings and checkups are key factors in preventing this from happening.

TO DETECT DENTAL PROBLEMS EARLY

Dr. Rahmany and the hygienists at Skyline Dental Centre will be able to detect any early signs of problems with your teeth and gums. Early detection of cavities, broken fillings and gum disease are easily treatable. If these problems go untreated, root canals, gum surgery and removal of teeth could become the only treatment options available. Your hygienist will help to ensure that you are maintaining your oral health and will put you back on the right path if you fall off track with your oral care.

TO PREVENT ORAL CANCER

TO HAVE A WHITE SMILE

According to Health Canada, about 4000 new cases will be diagnosed in Canada this year, and about 1500 people will die from oral cancer this year. When you have your dental cleaning, we use special equipment geared towards screening for oral cancer, which is highly curable if diagnosed early.

Your hygienist will remove most coffee, tobacco and tea stains, and will polish your teeth to a beautiful shine

With our new SpaDent Whitening system, we also provide state-of-theart technology to improve the shade of your teeth in just 20 minutes, WITH NO SENSITIVITY! Ask us about our new SpaDent system. Call us at Skyline Dental Centre for a free consultation today!

NVSD to hire consultant for Lucas Centre

Victim says grow-op feud led to assault From page 1

Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

THE North Vancouver school district is taking another stab at selling or leasing the defunct Monteray school as well as firming up plans to divest itself of Cloverley elementary and the much larger Lucas Centre buildings and lands. The school board is set to review a draft Request for Proposals for reuse or redevelopment of the Monteray property in the Upper Delbrook area before sending it out to the public. NEWS photo Mike Wakefield “It has been sitting empty for a couple years and I think THE former Monteray elementary school is for sale to the right owner, but the North Vancouver school district the community is starting to will hire a consultant to develop options for its Cloverley and Lucas Centre properties. wonder what’s happening with Cloverley and the Lucas Centre, are going to in terms of what could potentially happen there.

There are various district can put them on the block, so the board will be components to that site that could lead to all sorts of board chairwoman Franci Stratton. creative ideas and opportunities there,” Stratton said. This is not the first time Monteray has been put seeking out outside expertise. “We’re open to all future possibilities on this site. “They are two significant properties in the city that up for sale.

Evidence in the case included blood spatter patterns on the ceiling. Perry was later bound with zap straps before being stuffed in a vehicle and driven to Vancouver, where a passerby found him inside a car with a bag over his head. Perry said he had gone to the house on Philip Avenue to try to make a deal with a crime boss who was angry about Perry’s earlier involvement in a grow-rip of a marijuana operation in Lions Bay. Perry never saw who hit him from behind, although he said Defaveri — one of two men living in the house — was present when the attack began. Merrick said Defaveri’s fingerprint in Perry’s blood was compelling evidence of his involvement in the violence. A second man charged in the case was found not guilty. Perry suffered serious injuries in the attack including losing one eye and being partially blinded in the other, along with a skull fracture. He spent 11 days in hospital. Perry said he still has loss of memory and dizzy spells and can’t see well enough to read with his remaining eye. He added he doesn’t expect to ever see the $5,600 the judge ordered Defaveri to pay him in compensation.

Off-duty RCMP officer tackles fleeing suspect Video captures takedown of alleged shoplifter

OFF-DUTY RCMP Const. Tom Cichon makes a citizen’s arrest of a suspected shoplifter in Vancouver’s West End Friday.

A North Vancouver RCMP officer is being praised after he took down an alleged shoplifter while on his day off in Vancouver. A watchful citizen recorded the five-minute affair and the video is now racking up thousands of views online. Const. Tom Cichon, a four-year North Vancouver RCMP member, was doing some shopping Friday afternoon when he spotted a man allegedly shoplifting items from the Shoppers Drug Mart on Vancouver’s Davie Street and pursued him outside. Amateur videographer Terry David Silvercloud arrived on the scene in an alley behind St. Paul’s Hospital just as Cichon caught up with the suspect. The video depicts Cichon taking the suspect down to the ground with a Judo technique, identifying himself as a police officer and asking bystanders to call 9-1-1. The man appears desperate and tries to wriggle free of Cichon. “Please, I put the stuff back,” he says. “You’re ruining my life. I’m sorry. Let go of me.”

Eventually, Vancouver Police Department officers arrive on the scene and relieve Cichon. The suspect was arrested at the scene and released on a promise-to-appear in court. The incident underscores the commitment officers show their communities even when they’re off the clock, Cichon’s colleagues say. “It’s excellent to see. It’s a perfect example of how a police officer isn’t just a police officer 9 a.m. to 5 p.m, . . . ” said Sgt. Randy Fincham, VPD spokesman. “This officer ultimately did step in on his day off and didn’t really need to help out but he’s still out there doing his duties as a police officer regardless of his days on or days off, which is refreshing to see.” By Monday, the video of the citizen’s arrest had been seen more than 25,000 times on YouTube, though the officer isn’t seeking any wider attention, “He’s declining to give personal interviews. Everyone from Global to CNN wanted to talk to him,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, North Vancouver RCMP spokesman. Regular folks can detain someone who has committed a crime, so long as they’re sure they can do it safely and only detain the person while police are on their way, De Jong said. Anyone making a citizen’s arrest needs to be wary of the risk involved. “There always is (risk). That’s why first and foremost is your own personal safety and the safety of those around you. If in doubt, call 9-1-1,” he said.

administrative penalties for drunk drivers in B.C., the majority of those stopped aren’t criminally charged anymore, he said. “They could do the same thing with pot.” He added in some parts of the province, like the City of Vancouver, police already turn a blind eye to marijuana. But that’s not the case everywhere. “It’s totally arbitrary,” said Larsen. “It depends on what cop you get and how that cop’s feeling about marijuana that day.” In order to get the province to even consider a vote, however, the group faces a significant challenge. The campaign must sign up 10 per cent of registered voters in each

of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts in a 90-day period, between September and December. So far the only group to pull that off has been the campaign to rescind the HST. Larsen said he’s talked to some of the HST campaigners and has financial backing from multi-million-dollar B.C. lottery winner — and decriminalization advocate — Bob Erb. He’s hoping the billboard will drum up more volunteers for the campaign. Michael Charrois, who previously ran for the NDP in North Vancouver, is among those getting ready to collect signatures on the North Shore. “I think in a time of austerity, prohibition is a tremendous waste of money,”

said Charrois. “B.C. should be at least as progressive as our American neighbours.” Charrois said he’s been out on the North Shore recently trying to raise the profile of the campaign, which he concedes faces an “onerous” challenge in collecting enough signatures to pass. “We’ve got to get people off the couch and to put the Doritos down,” he said. Larsen, who also runs a medicinal marijuana dispensary in Vancouver, also criticized a federal government announcement Monday that those licensed to use medicinal marijuana will not be allowed to grow their own plants starting in 2014 but will have to order it by mail.

Larsen said the new rules won’t stop people from growing pot — simply push them underground. Const. Jeff Palmer, spokesman for the West Vancouver Police Department, said this week his officers aren’t concerned about the billboard advocating a pot referendum. “It’s advocating something that’s entirely lawful to do,” he said. It the past eight years, the West Vancouver Police Department has investigated 32 marijuana grow-ops, said Palmer. Palmer said there have been cases where growers have had Health Canada licences to grow medicinal marijuana but “are growing well in excess of what’s permitted.”

Two cyclists were riding the Pipeline Trail around 12:30 p.m. Monday when they came across an unresponsive man who appeared to have fallen from a trail obstacle called a balance board or teeter plank, according to North Vancouver RCMP. The witnesses performed CPR and called emergency services, however all efforts to revive the victim failed.

North Shore Rescue volunteers were called in to remove the body, using a helicopter and longline harness, typically used for rescuing hikers injured in remote areas. The body of the 38-year-old Jeffrey Fields, of Boise, Idaho, is now with the B.C. Coroners Service to determine the exact cause of death. Field’s family has been notified and is requesting privacy in the wake of the tragedy. District of North Vancouver staff were on site Tuesday to carry out an inspection of the trail and structures. Preliminary inspection indicates that there were no problems with any of the structures and that all signage was in place, according to municipal spokeswoman Jeanine Bratina. Pipeline is a black diamond-rated, or highly challenging, trail.

M

OST Canadians believe they live in a democracy that two generations fought and died to protect; that their western civilization is preferable to living under despotic or totalitarian regimes. But the comfort zone of our freedom has been under piecemeal attack since 9-11. A Liberal government approved a secret surveillance program in 2005 that allowed Canadians’ phone calls and Internet activity to be monitored. It was cancelled after a former Supreme Court judge pointed out that Canadian law required police to get a warrant for such activity. It has now come to light that Defence Minister Peter MacKay authorized essentially the same program in 2011 by a ministerial decree — thus avoiding scrutiny by Parliament.

True, the Communications Security Establishment is not eavesdropping, but said to be collecting patterns of activity. But it is doing that by logging every phone call and the activity of every Internet address. This sweeping electronic surveillance was, until this week, secret. Just how much security is too much is a difficult question to answer, but the place to have that debate in a democracy is in its elected Parliament. Perhaps the Conservatives were attempting to do just that with their infamous online spying bill of 2012 (Bill C-30), the one Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said we should support or side with the child pornographers. In any event, the Tories quietly pulled the bill a year later in the face of country-wide opposition. Then, as now, democracy requires defending.

Bees missing from our backyards this year

Dear Editor: So there I am cutting the grass last week with my just-sharpened push reel mower, when it hits me. Where are the honey bees? At this time of year, the clover and buttercups should be teeming with Apis mellifera. One of the many advantages of using a push mower is you get a good look at the grass. Removing the small stones and bits of wood — which can jam the blades, but are nuked with a gas mower — involves frequent close-up inspections. Not a honey bee so far, and no bumble bees either. My yard can’t be the exception because I deliberately include bee-attracting, B.C. native wild flowers along with mono culture grass seed. Bee colony collapse, just a few years ago,

was treated by the scientific community as an impending disaster, in keeping with species extinction the world over, with one important exception. Agriculture depends on pollination. Imagine a world without nuts and berries and you get the picture. Pollinating insects have a cascading effect throughout the food web; intricate relationships between keystone flora and fauna species ultimately determine the total food yield on the planet. Until this summer season, bee colony collapse practically disappeared as a news item, with the unintended effect of reducing its urgency. As a scientific mystery, bee colony collapse is of a piece with autism. Though the environmental and epidemiological links

— autism rates are soaring in North America — are strongly suspected, the jury is still out. Every possible chemical connection, environmental contributor, behavioural artifact is being explored in an effort to isolate the cause(s). No less a scientist than Einstein himself recognized the critical niche that bees occupy in the food web. His quote goes something like, “If bees were to disappear from the face of the earth, mankind will be close behind.” He’s been proven right about the speed of light, the nature of gravity, the mass of an electron and our relationship with spacetime. Could he be right about this ultimate harbinger of survival as well? Hugh Nevin, North Vancouver

tolerate this type of behaviour and this incident was quickly dealt with. Our association follows the Fair Play code and has policies that apply to everyone in our lacrosse community — coaches, referees, players and parents. The principles of Fair Play are based on integrity, fairness

and respect. It provides a foundation in minor sports for teaching children (and the sporting community) about the importance of respect, efforts and attitudes. Parents are an integral part of this support system. They need to be positive contributors and role models

for their own children, their children’s teams and our overall community. Our objective is to provide an opportunity for children to develop their skills and excel in lacrosse in a fun and safe environment. Lacrosse is a great sport with a long tradition on the

North Shore. We appreciate our supportive and positive parents, coaches, volunteers and fans — they are the vast majority who believe in the Fair Play code for the benefit of the kids. Tim McNulty North Shore Minor Lacrosse Association

We must reprioritize our education dollars

School Act, Aug. 1, 2012

READING-GLASSES on, can you find any caveats in that statement?

Just Asking

Elizabeth James

If there is nothing that says dyslexic or other students with barriers to learning are excluded from the word “every,” why must some parents pay $20,000 a year in private school fees to give their dyslexic child the best education possible? What happens to intellectually different children if their single or working-poor parents cannot even afford the $2,500 assessment fee, let alone the $20,000? In the best of cases, these students remain with their peers in the regular school system where specially-trained tutors may be available to supplement the work of classroom teachers. But the best-case scenario doesn’t apply in every classroom across the province; nor does it apply uniformly across cash-strapped classrooms in a given school district.

Why is that, when, according to online information from the Ministry of Education, all school district budgets are adjusted to account for differences between rural and urban schools and differences between the costs of educating regular learners and those designated as “unique” students? As you might expect, the more the ministry talks the more the labels change and the more likely you are to end up comparing apples to bananas. The per capita basic allocation for regular learners for the 2013-14 school year will be $6,784. The per capita grants for “needs students” are as follows: Level 1, students identified as physically dependent or deaf/blind: $36,600; Level 2, students with moderate to profound intellectual, physical or chronic health disabilities, visual or hearing impairments and

autism spectrum disorder: $18,300; Level 3, students with serious mental illness, or who need intensive behaviour interventions: $9,200. Our society, represented by government and the legislation, has decided every child has an equal right to access public school and post-secondary education. The critical point here is that the word equal cannot be qualified; rights are either equal or they’re not. So unless we’re prepared to change the legislation, we cannot accept that parents of some dyslexic children must mortgage their family’s future to the tune of a low-salary jobequivalent every school year. If these issues aren’t addressed, the hazards to those students and to society are at least two-fold — and could end up costing us a fortune in dollars and heartbreak.

Worse still, the resulting stigma and low self-esteem can lead to acting-out, brushes with the law, alcoholism and/or drug-addiction.

MAILBOX Program cuts required: Senate From page 7 budget now only covers 42 per cent. Yet even though the Information Technology departmental budget of $4.6 million was a “specific area of interest,” the SBAC submission concluded it was “unable to solve the budget problem without cuts to programs and sections.” So much for the concerns of a North Shore mother who told me her young adult son is “struggling to find work placement due to a disability and badly needs to be accepted into the university’s programs.” Several meetings are on the CapU agenda this week. Let’s hope they’ll result in more palatable solutions. There are billions of dollars in British Columbia’s education pots. What we need now are some new glasses to focus on how those dollars are being deployed. rimco@shaw.ca

A childhood bully who never grew up Dear Editor: Hostility, vulgarity, racism and elder abuse are alive and well in West Vancouver. Everyone who shops at Park Royal knows all about the construction and limited parking available. For the most part people are congenial and patient in finding parking. Yesterday, however, took the cake. I was driving a 75-year-old passenger looking for a handicapped parking space. None were available. I found a spot beside the shopping cart collection point. While attempting to park, I noticed a spot coming available just ahead of me close to the door of Whole Foods, which was better for my passenger. My passenger

exited to go and stand in the spot in order to secure it as the holder of the spot acknowledged it was for her. I was moving the car to make room for this lady to exit. Meanwhile a BMW passed on my left from behind to deke ahead to take the spot. She began to turn into the spot and my passenger advised the spot was taken. This prompted a slew of slurs from the 60-ish aggressive woman driver — a bully if there ever was one. She was screaming at my passenger everything from “b**ch,” to foreigner, to foreigner go home. But the worst thing was that she proceeded to drive into the stall with my passenger still standing there and drove against her to force her to leave. My passenger had a cane and became unbalanced

but luckily did not fall. The bully continued to push her way into the stall and my passenger had to step aside to risk being hit again or worse. The bully then came over to the car I was in and yelled and ranted about my lack of parking skills in an “entry-level Mercedes.” She only succeeded in exposing herself to all who watched for exactly who she is. Verbal abuse is one thing but using your vehicle to physically force someone’s exit is quite another. Just a reminder to all who are parking in less than ideal conditions that consideration and patience are virtues — and to be on the lookout for the childhood bully who never grew up.

North Shore Rescue wins award Justice Institute of B.C.

gives 2013 Cohen Award to local volunteer team Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

IT will come as no shock to the dozens of people whose lives they saved last year, but North Shore Rescue is being honoured for its contributions to public safety. The Justice Institute of B.C., which trains many of the province’s police officers, firefighters and paramedics, is giving the North Shore team the 2013 Dr. Joseph H. Cohen Award, which recognizes “outstanding contributions in the field of public safety.” “As one of the oldest search and rescue teams in Canada, your community-based team has been involved in more than 2,500 mountain search and rescue operations, averaging 90 calls a year and 20,000 volunteer hours,” reads a letter from JIBC

foundation chairman John Chesman. The news is a welcomed pat on the back for the organization, according to Tim Jones, team leader. “This award is a validation to me, as team leader, that our team is taken very seriously and we’re a very relevant organization and not just on the North Shore,” Jones said. “I know that the recent activity that we’ve had, specifically around Christmas, really opened people’s eyes as to what our team does.” Rescue volunteers found themselves being dispatched to the backcountry almost daily in late December 2012 to carry out a series of technically difficult rescues of hard-to-find hikers and snowboarders — all of which ended in success. The amount of hours the volunteers put in both for training and rescues, is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the team, Jones said. “That in itself is a staggering number for such a relatively small team,” he said. The good news from JIBC follows other praise the organization recently received in Parliament. North Vancouver Conservative MP Andrew Saxton paid tribute to NSR in a May 21 speech. “Their focus on mountain search and rescue, helicopter rescue, urban search and rescue, and

public education provide life-saving services all yearround, day in and day out,” Saxton said. “Last winter, I was pleased to present founding member Karl Winter with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition of over 50 years of contributions to this service. . . . On behalf of the nature and sport enthusiasts who enjoy North Vancouver’s gorgeous outdoor terrain, I want to thank the North Shore Rescue team for your ongoing commitment to our safety and security — and a big congratulations on your new state-ofthe-art command centre.” The recent praise ought to help North Shore Rescue in its less harrowing but equally important mission of fundraising, Jones said. The team is currently seeking out donors who will be able to offer a large sum of legacy funding, which will help the team continue saving lives in the years to come. Past recipients of the Joseph H. Cohen Award include former Lt.-Gov. Stephen Point, BARWATCH, Representative for Children and Youth Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, and former Prime Minister Kim Campbell. North Shore Rescue volunteers will be on hand to receive the award at the 2013 JIBC foundation awards gala this fall.

City wants GM foods labelled

THE City of North Vancouver would rather you not grow any genetically modified crops, trees and plants.

Council unanimously passed a resolution Monday night calling on senior levels of government to introduce mandatory labelling of GM products and put a moratorium on more GM products entering the market until more rigorous scientific assessments are in place. The resolution directs city staff to investigate the possibility of banning the sale of genetically modified crops, meat, fish, poultry and seeds in the city. — Brent Richter

Survey seeks youth input METRO Vancouver youth aged 15 to 24 are invited to share their views on important social issues such as homelessness, health and education through the Youth Vital Signs 2013 online survey.

A wood to the wise

KLATLE Bhi, a Squamish carver and storyteller, works in the foyer of Collingwood school’s Wentworth campus on a legacy totem pole for the school. Bhi, who carved the Vancouver 2010 totem pole, is also teaching the school’s pupils about the process of carving and the symbolism of totem poles.

Funded by Coast Capital Savings, the Vancouver Foundation and the City of Vancouver, the survey allows young people to grade and share their experiences on life in Metro Vancouver in 13 categories, including: arts, environment, poverty, homelessness, safety, employment, education, transportation, culture, identity and belonging, physical health, mental health, youth voice and youth spaces. The first Youth Vital Signs survey in 2009 canvassed youth 15-24 in the City of Vancouver. This follow-up survey covers Metro Vancouver municipalities, providing a larger sampling of young people across the region. The survey, which can be accessed at youthvitalsigns.ca, is open until June 17. Results will be released in the fall. The goal is to inform and influence key decision-makers, government, funders and organizations to take concrete steps to address issues that affect young people. — Christine Lyon

Avoid chemical pest control IF I learned one thing about teaching insect pest control for the garden, it is that people have allowed themselves to be conditioned to the “silver bullet” method of control.

The silver bullet method relies heavily on applying some sort of product to kill insect pests in the garden. This foolhardy method of control requires perpetual use of product, ongoing obedience to purchasing and a failure to understand the garden’s ecology while ignoring the longterm view.

Dig Deep

Todd Major

Here’s a secret that most consumers do not know about using chemical pest products in the garden: There are no curative chemicals, there are only preventative chemicals, meaning no chemical can completely eliminate insects, chemicals can only control insects. Therefore once you start spraying, you become a slave to spending money on a product that has no hope of permanently eliminating pests from the garden. To put it into a context we’ll use a simple scenario. If you spend $10 twice a year on insect control to buy a product that you spray for 10 years, you will have spent $200 and

the pest will continue to appear year after year. Even if you do control the pest by upgrading to evermore toxic products, the environmental damage is unseen and lasts through the lifespan of your children. Here’s another secret that “they” do not want you to know: Insects genetically mutate to develop resistance to chemicals. The more society sprays chemicals, the faster insects breed resistance. In the same way that human disease causing agents become resistant to antibiotics, garden insect pests also develop resistance to See ID page 14

ID garden pests before bringing out the spray

From page 13

chemicals. Worldwide, more than 500 species of insects, ants, mites, and spiders have developed some level of pesticide resistance (Source: Michigan State University, grapes.msu.edu). And insect resistance to pesticides has only occurred since society started widespread use of pesticides in the 1950s. With all of that information in mind, here are some simple solutions to help control insects in the garden. Feed me: Healthy plants are known to be more likely to withstand pest attack. But feeding with chemical fertilizer leads to soft growth that is desirable to insects. Feed your plants by incorporating animal manure or compost at time of planting. And always mulch your plants because mulch is a source of slow-release nutrient. The persistent myth that ornamental plants need regular fertilization is a product of seductive marketing and not true, so don’t waste your money. Time to die: I know that many soft-hearted gardeners cannot stand this option of pest control, but it is the most effective long-term solution for plants that are chronically affected by insect attack. So dig up that pest ridden plant, compost it and replace with a different species of plant and your pest problem will be solved, permanently. Is that the right plant for that spot? Of all the things in the garden that we have control over, plant selection is the most important. Choosing the right plant for the right place can prevent a lifetime of pest problems. If you like a particular plant, then find the right place in the garden for it to grow according to its preferred growing

conditions, not the place you want it to grow. You mean I shouldn’t kill those aphids: Yes, that is correct. To obtain stable, long-term pest control there must be some insect food for predatory insects to eat. If you continually spray to kill all insects then you are removing the food source for wasps, lacewings, ladybugs and other predatory insects that provide free insect control. For many people this paradigm shift in thinking is the hardest philosophy to accept and comprehend. But it works, it’s free, healthy for the environment and provides an opportunity to teach children a gentler, kinder and more effective way to grow a healthy garden. I don’t know what it was but I sprayed it just in case: This type of archaic thinking has led us to believe that all insects should be killed. Spraying without accurate identification is blind ignorance, damaging to the environment and expensive financially. Before you try to control any insect pest you must accurately identify the problem. Today there are so many Internet resources to help identify insect pests that anyone with a computer or smartphone can easily identify any garden pest. But a word of caution, only use .edu or .gov websites to assure accuracy. The most important thing gardeners can do to control insect pests is to stay calm and don’t freak out thinking hordes of locusts have descended just because you saw one bug on your plant. Use your mind, identify and determine if there is even a problem before you go spraying some poison into our air, water and soil. Your children will thank you and so will I.

Oil Tank Removal Expertise If you’re looking at buying or selling an older home, you may be faced with a cost that is literally hidden- removing an underground oil tank. While some municipalities require the removal of underground storage tanks and some do not, most real estate transactions and mortgage and insurance companies have policies in place that demand underground tanks be removed. For over 25 years, North Vancouver’s Tank Tech has specialised in oil tank locating and removal as well as soil testing, remediation and more. Certified members of the Petroleum Tank Management Association, the experts at Tank Tech work in strict compliance with all provincial and municipal laws and regulations to provide a high level of professional service for safe and efficient removal and disposal of underground tanks.

Even if you aren’t planning on selling in the immediate future, if you have an older oil tank on your property, it pays to remove it sooner rather than later. The average life span of an underground tank is 15-20 years. After that, corrosion builds up and the tank can start to leak- leading to extensive soil damage which you are responsible to clean up.

Even if you aren’t planning on selling in the immediate future, if you have an older oil tank on your property, it pays to remove it sooner rather than later.

Members of the Better Business Bureau, Tank Tech crews are fully insured and covered under WorkSafe BC and trained in the transportation of dangerous goods. Their client list includes home owners, commercial and industrial sites, fire departments, municipalities, contractors, law firms and financial institutions.

Tank Tech knows what to look for and has successfully carried out tank removal and soil remediation from disintegrating tanks throughout Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and the Sea to Sky Corridor.

With competitive rates, timely service and the equipment to tackle any sized job, Tank Tech has the track record and experience to see your tank problems through from start to finish. They’ll leave your yard environmentally sound and leave you free from worry.

Turn your renovation into a community building project If you are looking at renovating your home, now there’s a way to get your project completed that saves you money and hassle and helps the community. Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore is now open at 126 Harbour Avenue in North Vancouver.

When Habitat for Humanity was founded in Georgia in 1976, their mission was to provide affordable home ownership for less fortunate members of the community. Today there are 70 affiliate organizations in Canada alone.

The funds generated by re-selling all products go towards Habitat for Humanity projects in the Greater Vancouver community.

The ReStore idea began in Winnipeg in 1991 and has spread across North America. The concept is simple: help businesses, contractors and individuals get rid of surplus or gently used building materials and home décor items, sell them at substantial discounts and use the proceeds to help fund affordable housing projects in the same community. Largely staffed by volunteers, the ReStore provides buyers with an environmentally conscious, money saving shopping destination and provides opportunity for those looking for work to build valuable skills.

Their trucks provide delivery and pick up of materials. If you’re renovating a kitchen, you can donate your old cabinets to the ReStore. They will pick them up and take them away- saving you the time and expense of dismantling them yourself and taking them to the dump.

NAIM and Jessica Abou-Khazaal are the proud parents of triplets Hassane (left), Nadeem, and Ahmad, who were conceived without the use of fertility drugs.

GIFT WITH PURCHASE!

IT was news Naim and Jessica Abou-Khazaal were not happy to hear: Jessica might be having a miscarriage.

She was three months pregnant and experiencing abdominal pain. The North Vancouver couple was at Lions

Gate Hospital to have the pain assessed when a doctor told them there might be a problem with the pregnancy. It was a Sunday night and Naim and Jessica were told they would have to return the next day for an ultrasound because a technician wasn’t available. The next day, they returned to the hospital for the test, and when the doctor came in with the results he asked them if they had used IVF (in-vitro fertilization). They told him no. His response was unexpected: “Congratulations you don’t have one heartbeat, you have three heartbeats.” Jessica was pregnant with triplets. “My first reaction was university costs, (that was) the first thing that crossed my mind,” says Naim with a laugh. “We were just in a state of shock for a good couple of weeks. And then once it settled in we were incredibly excited, and we look at it as a gift, as a miracle, so we’re really happy.” On Feb. 26, Naim and Jessica welcomed their three sons: Hassane, Ahmad and Nadeem. The trio was born at B.C. Women’s Hospital where they stayed in the ICU for a few weeks. Born at just over 32 weeks, all three were

underweight: one was four pounds and one was four-anda-half pounds. Baby Nadeem was just two pounds. “He would fit in my hand,” says Naim of the son he referred to as his “little peanut.” He now calls him his “little champion” because he is growing and thriving, just like his brothers. Because it was such a highrisk pregnancy, Naim and Jessica could only plan so much before the birth, and had to deal every day with the reality that not all the babies might survive. They didn’t even buy a stroller until after the babies were born. After leaving B.C. Women’s Hospital, the babies spent a few weeks at Lions Gate Hospital before they were sent home. “It felt like you were bringing home a part of you, like you felt you were bringing home a completion,” says Naim. “It was the most incredible, warm feeling.” He says although he and his wife had a realistic idea of how much work they were in for, they didn’t really know how much work they were in for. “There’s no joking, it’s a lot of work,” says Naim with a laugh. The couple operates a family business in North Vancouver

called Samco Beauty Supplies, which is a beauty supply and distribution company, and although they do have baby help from family and friends nighttimes are still very busy. “We look forward to when they sleep more so we can sleep more,” says Naim. Not surprisingly, the addition of three children at once has had an effect on the couple’s relationship. “The dynamics of the family have completely changed. We used to be able to be really selfish and watch movies in the evening and do what we wanted to do, go out on the weekend, and things obviously completely changed. But it’s brought us closer in a whole different way that we never knew before,” explains Naim. He says he can’t wait until his kids are old enough for the family to go on hikes together and enjoy the outdoors. Long ago, he promised himself that if he ever had any children he would raise them the way his father raised him, with a lot of support for whatever they wanted to do. “In my personal opinion, the most important part about being a father is teaching your kids how to be true in everything that they do. And everything that they do they do it 110 per cent.”

PARENTING

Encourage outdoor play THERE have been myriad stories about the need for children to become more active.

Parenting Today Kathy Lynn

But despite all the talk, this year’s Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card found that there has been no improvement observed in the physical activity levels of children and youth (5 to 17 year olds). A mere 5 per cent meet the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines. The Report Card is the most comprehensive annual assessment of child and youth physical activity in Canada. AHKC works with its strategic partners to develop and disseminate the Report Card. The

Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa works with an interdisciplinary group that includes top researchers from across Canada, to ensure that the Report Card includes the most up-to-date evidence about physical activity for children and youth. One of the big issues is the family car. Kids are being driven everywhere; 62 per cent of Canadian youth use only inactive modes of transportation to get to and from school. And yet, we say we want them to be more active. Well, here is a simple solution. Have them walk or bike to school. See Kids page 43

Chic Angels gives little feet a fitting start

Summer Collections Are Here! Asics • Bloch Blundstone • Crocs Ecco • Geox • Hatley Keen • Stride Rite Toms

Youngsters grow quickly and their soft developing bones need support to make sure your children grow into healthy adults. This is particularly true of their feet. Now open in West Vancouver at Park Royal, Chic Angels is a children’s shoe store born out of a desire to make sure kids get proper footwear from an early age. Owner Upane Vadhera left the world of business development and finance to make a difference.“The birth of our first daughter was the inspiration to make the transition from the corporate world to small business owner,” says Upane,“especially when we realized how difficult it was to find good quality shoes and clothing for little kids.”

...we realized how difficult it was to find good quality shoes and clothing for little kids.

Shoes for trendy kids

2020 Park Royal South, West Vancouver 778.279.2970 • www.chicangels.ca

PACIFIC PEDIATRIC DENTAL CENTRE WELCOMING NEW PATIENTS “We opened at Park Royal under the Chic Angels banner last summer at the former Kiddie Kobbler location when they ran into financial difficulties after having served the North Shore for over two decades. We retained all the staff from that business and have continued to provide the exceptional selection and service that they were known for.” Here, they carry on both Kiddie Kobbler’s reputation for service and add their own understanding of what young children need.

Three years ago, an opportunity came up in Victoria and Upane took the plunge. “We took over the struggling Scallywags Children’s Boutique business in downtown Victoria. Our mission is to provide the best selection of quality footwear from around the world, ensure that each child gets properly fitted and provide exceptional service to have our customers keep coming back for their footwear needs.” As the idea that resonated with parents, the business grew and expanded to a second location in West Vancouver.

“Bones are not fully formed in a child’s foot until age 5. So it is very important to have the right fitting shoe. Shoes that do not fit properly can contribute to poor foot development which can lead to back and muscle problems as the child get older. Our staff understand the importance great customer service and of measuring and fitting the right shoe. Sometimes we spend over 30 minutes to find and fit the right shoe to make sure you walk out happy.” To make sure you get exactly what your child needs, Chic Angels stocks all the heading brands to provide quality footwear for youngsters from newborn up.

“We carry the largest selection of quality kid’s shoes in the Lower Mainland and have a great selection from newborn booties all the way up to youth sizes and over thirty brands ranging from formal school shoes, runners, ballet flats, rain boots, fashion boots and snow boots. Our key brands are Bloch, Blundstone, Bogs, Geox, Hatley, Keen, Robeez, Sorel, Stride Rite, The North Face, Timberland and Toms.” To complement their footwear selections, Chic Angels also offers a selection of outerwear with an emphasis on locally made products. “Although fitting shoes is our forte, we also carry a great selection of outerwear and winter jackets with some fantastic locally made products like hair clips and hair bands as well as the now famous Padraig slippers which are made right here on the North Shore.” If you have an active youngster in the family, a trip to Chic Angels can help make sure they get off on the right foot. Visit them at their location beside Future Shop, upstairs at Park Royal South or check them out online at www.chicangels.ca.

Hotel eateries earn praise Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard

B.C. berries are back in season

Chris Dagenais Contributing writer

ONE of the earliest incarnations of the restaurant emerged when weary travellers, traversing greater distances as transportation infrastructure improved, demanded en route sustenance.

THEY’RE back! Luscious B.C. berries are hitting the stores.

Inns and taverns provided such fare, satisfying both the need for rest and the need for a restorative meal. In French, that which restores is called a restaurant. The history of the connection between hotels and restaurants is a storied one. In fact, some of the world’s most accomplished chefs come from restaurants situated in hotels. However, the advent of the chain hotel has contributed to a popular new opinion of hotel restaurants. Home to the ubiquitous continental breakfast and “world famous” Caesar salad, these functional, oftentimes cookie-cutter, establishments rarely rise to the top of anyone’s list of NEWS photo Cindy Goodman must-try dining venues.

1 cup whipping cream ½ cup icing sugar 2 cups crushed, crisp meringues 3 Tbsp raspberry liqueur or thawed raspberry punch concentrate Strawberry Coulis: ½ lb strawberries, hulled 2 tsp fresh lemon juice 1 ⁄3 cup icing sugar Lightly brush an eight-inch springform pan with vegetable oil and line the bottom with parchment paper. Puree the eight strawberries in a blender or food processor, then strain them into a large bowl through a fine wire sieve to remove the seeds. Discard seeds. Whip the cream with the half cup of icing sugar until soft peaks are formed. Fold the cream into the strawberry purée, then fold in the crushed meringues and the

liqueur. Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared pan; cover pan with plastic wrap and freeze for several hours or overnight. Meanwhile, make the strawberry coulis. Puree the half pound of strawberries and strain to remove seeds. Stir in the lemon juice and icing sugar; taste coulis and add more sugar to taste. Just before serving, run a thinbladed knife around the outside of the pan; remove sides of pan. Invert the semifreddo onto a serving platter; remove parchment paper. Cut into slices, dipping knife into hot water between slices. Transfer each slice to a serving plate and spoon coulis around each serving; garnish with whole berries. Makes six to eight servings.

cupcakes for this recipe, but I doubt you’ll have any problem getting rid of the rest. 4 cups sliced strawberries 2 Tbsp granulated sugar 3 large eggs, room temperature (you’ll use only the yolk of one of these) 1 tsp vanilla ½ cup plus 2 Tbsp buttermilk 1½ cups cake flour (or measure 1½ cups all purpose flour, remove 3 Tbsp and replace with 3 Tbsp cornstarch) 1 cup granulated sugar 2½ tsp baking powder ¼ tsp salt ½ cup butter, room temperature 1 cup whipping cream 1 Tbsp sugar In a large bowl, mix together the strawberries and two tablespoons of sugar. Let stand at room temperature for one hour to allow berries to release juices, then refrigerate. Preheat oven to 350 degrees; line 15 muffin cups with paper liners. Whisk two eggs and one egg yolk, the vanilla and a quarter cup of the buttermilk together in a small bowl. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine the flour, baking powder and salt; mix on low for about 30 seconds. Add the butter and the remaining buttermilk to the flour mixture

and with the mixer on low, blend together. Raise mixer speed to medium and beat until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Add the egg mixture in two additions, scraping down the sides of the bowl and mixing after each addition only until thoroughly incorporated. Divide the batter evenly among the lined muffin cups, filling them about two-thirds full (don’t overfill or the tops of the cupcakes will be too big). Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until cupcakes are brown around the edges and spring back when touched. To assemble shortcakes, cut six of the cupcakes in half horizontally (cut just under the rim). Place the bottom of a cupcake on each of six serving plates. Whip the cream and one tablespoon sugar until soft peaks form. Spoon the sliced berries over the cupcake bottoms; top with spoonfuls of whipped cream and place top halves of cupcakes on top of whipped cream. Makes six servings.

White Spot celebrates 85 years ON June 16, the White Spot restaurant chain will celebrate its 85th anniversary.

A press release from the company states that classic menu items are being brought back in recognition of the milestone, including Chicken Pick’ns, Meatloaf Dinner, original BBQ Chicken Sandwich, Triple Triple three-patty burger, and Bumbleberry Pie topped with local vanilla bean ice cream served in a personal-sized crust. The commemorative menu, which is available from June 10 to July 14, brings White Spot history to life with stories, such as the tale of a couple who got engaged over a chocolate milkshake. Nearly one thousand White Spot stories were sent in from customers around the

Dora Wooten province, stated the release. One of those stories is from North Vancouver’s Dora Wooten, who has worked at the Park & Tilford White Spot for 22 years. She says in the press

release that some of the store’s regulars call the lounge area where she serves “Dora’s den.” She notes that she once had a customer who ordered a 13patty burger and ate the whole thing. According to the release, White Spot founder Nat Bailey opened Canada’s first drive-in at Granville & 67th streets in 1928. He began his food career serving refreshments at baseball games, and transformed his 1918 Model T Ford into a travelling lunch counter that served sightseers at Vancouver’s Lookout Point. Hot dogs were a dime and ice cream was a nickel. Net proceeds from the anniversary menu, which are available for $2 as a keepsake, will go to supporting Zajac Ranch for Children.

The Lobby’s accolades are all the more remarkable when you consider the success of Pier 7, its idyllically situated neighbour and surely its top competitor, even if both restaurants are owned by the same group. Pier 7 boasts stunning wrap-around patios and the cuisine of Dino Renaerts, arguably one of Vancouver’s most celebrated culinary talents. Combine Pier 7’s assets with lingering prejudices against hotel restaurants and you can see that The Lobby has overcome a few obstacles to garner its following. I decided to visit The Lobby for Sunday brunch to see if the Pinnacle at the Pier is doing its part to redeem the reputation of hotel restaurants. I am pleased to report it is. The Lobby is a nicely appointed room with dark wooden floors and giant windows that flood the space with natural light. Its brunch menu is a treat, offering a sizeable selection of sweet and savoury dishes including omelettes and eggs Benedict, halibut and chips, and seared Alaskan black cod. My visit to The Lobby marked a special occasion: my seventh wedding anniversary. My wife DJ and I toasted the occasion with mimosas, easily one of the most enjoyable ways to consume a daily serving of fruit. DJ chose the Brunch Omelette: three eggs with cheddar, fire-roasted red peppers and spinach, served with skinon breakfast potatoes and a basket of buttered toast. The omelette was fluffy and plump, bursting at the seams with its fresh ingredients. I ordered the restaurant’s signature brunch dish: Crab Cake Benny. It is clear to me why executive chef Joel Green and his team are keen to stand behind this dish. It is, without qualification, among the top three preparations of eggs Benedict I have had the pleasure of eating. The two Dungeness crab cakes were dense and meaty and provided an exceptional base for perfectly poached eggs and homemade Hollandaise. This dish alone makes a return visit worthwhile. Service was attentive and welcoming. Anyone who regularly goes out for brunch knows that this is not always the case as the aftermath of Saturday night’s

Kids need downtime to just go out and play From page 32 The trick is to teach them how and to encourage all the kids in the neighbourhood to travel together. Walk to the school yourself and determine the safest route. Then walk with your kids and hopefully other children from the area. As you walk, talk about how to cross the roads, the importance of staying on the sidewalks and why this is the best route to take. Then have them lead the way and you follow. Soon they are easily able to negotiate the way themselves and they are getting exercise twice daily. “By driving our kids to and from their destinations, we may be robbing them of an important source of physical activity, and contributing to lifelong unhealthy habits,” says Dr. Mark Tremblay of AHKC. “Active transportation presents an easy, costeffective and environmentally friendly way to increase physical activity levels

ropes and let them play. One reason we tend to drive our kids everywhere is because they have busy, active schedules and so do we. The solution is to reconsider the schedule. Does your child need to be out every evening of the week? If you discover you haven’t had a meal at a table for two weeks, you need to re-evaluate. Have your child choose fewer activities and there will be time for actual exercise. They can walk home from school because they aren’t heading to soccer, baseball, dance, pottery, drama and art classes. Our children need to move, they need to be physically active and it’s up to their parents to make it happen.

among children and youth, and its benefits are significant. In fact, if we encouraged our kids to walk for trips less than a kilometre, they could bank an additional 10 to 15 minutes of physical activity per trip!” Another easy solution is to encourage outdoor play. I went for a walk in our local park the other day. It was a school holiday and the weather was sublime. The playground was busy. But I noticed that it was busy with toddler and preschoolers with adult supervision. There were no school-aged children. The park should have been a-buzz with children and youth playing pickup softball or soccer. They should have been running, jumping and rolling. Where were they? I have no idea but I worry that they are home, sitting in front of one screen or another while adults worry about their lack of exercise. Open the door, show them the way to the park, give them balls or skipping

THE British Columbia Automobile Association is expanding its School Safety Patrol program to help more children get to and from school safely. Starting now, the association is offering the program free of charge to B.C. elementary schools. Schools can use the program to organize and train a team of student safety patrollers who volunteer their time to ensure their peers remain safe at road crossings within schools zones. As a school safety

patroller, students are taught about road safety, citizenship and teamwork. According to Safe Kids Canada, children aged five to 14 are at the greatest risk for pedestrian-related fatalities. Schools can register for the program for the upcoming school year by visiting bcaaroadsafety.com, emailing roadsafety@bcaa.com or calling 604-298-5107. Registered schools will receive safety patrol equipment, structured training materials and student resources to launch and run the program.

ARGYLE’S James Elson touches down during the senior boys triple jump competition at the B.C. high school track and field championships held May 31-June 1 in Langley. Elson, a member of the NorWesters track club, won silver in triple jump and gold in high jump.

WHEN you set the bar as high as North Vancouver’s James Elson does, sometimes you have to wait a while for others to catch up. At the start of the senior boys’ high jump event at the B.C. high school provincial track and field championships held May 31 at Langley’s McLeod Athletic Park, Elson informed the marshals that he’d make his first jump when the bar reached 1.80 m. He then waited. And waited and waited. Meanwhile the rest of the field, starting at 1.50 m, slowly whittled itself down. “It was like an hour and a half before I actually started jumping,” Elson told the North Shore News Monday as he rehashed photo supplied the event, adding that sitting around is not as easy as it sounds. “It’s tough because JAMES Elson recently cleared 2.03 m in high jump at a meet in Kamloops, a height that passed the you have to keep yourself warm but not tire qualification standard for next month’s World Youth Championships. yourself out at the same time. It’s hard to do eyeing the bar with all other eyes on him, a setup he’s a long day. actually.” “By then I was getting tired,” he said. “I’d been The Argyle Grade 11 student wasn’t being cocky or become used to in recent competitions. “I don’t really find it stressful. It’s nice because I warmed up since 4:30 p.m. and it was like 7 at that trying to psych out his opponents, he just knows what heights he can comfortably make. For instance, 1.80 know when it’s down to the last person, you get three time.” Such is life for the athlete currently ranked as the was a comfortable make. So was 1.85 on his second minutes between each jump. It’s nice to have that jump. When he cleared that height, there was only one extra time. I just try to stay calm and focus on the No. 1 youth (17 and under) high jumper in Canada. Two weeks before the high school provincials Elson jumping.” other jumper left in the competition. Elson then cleared 1.95 m on his first attempt and set an even higher mark, clearing a personal best His third jump at 1.90 went well too, and by that time he was the provincial high school champion the bar went up to 2.00 m. That’s as far as it would go, without recording a single miss. Now it was just Elson however, as three straight misses finally put an end to See Seycove page 46

2.03 m at the Kamloops Centennial meet. That was an important mark as it met the qualifying standard for the World Youth Championships in Athletics scheduled for July 10-14 in Donetsk, Ukraine. As long as Elson remains in the top two in Canada for the next week he’ll earn a trip to the championships thanks to that jump in Kamloops. “I got it on my third try,” he said. “I jumped up, cleared over the bar and I already was like ‘wooo’ and clapping my hands together before I hit the mat. I was so excited.” Not just a jumper, Elson is also trying to make the qualification standard in the octathlon, a multi-event that combines races of 100 m, 400 m, and 1,000 m, long jump, high jump, shot put, javelin and the 110-m hurdles. He’s also a fan of the triple jump, having finished second in that event at the high school championships. Elson started competing in school meets as an elementary student but he pins his springiness on another sport. “I did martial arts from when I was five up until Grade 7,” he said. “When we do that there’s a lot of jumping with the kicks and stuff. We used to do it on a hardwood floor so that really developed a lot of foot strength and calf strength.” Argyle teammate Morgan Haines, who was a senior when Elson was in Grade 8, saw that the young kid had talent and steered him into the NorWesters track club. Since then he’s honed his technique with coach Elena Voloshin and he hopes to keep flying higher, potentially earning a university scholarship after his Grade 12 year. For now, though, he’s hoping to get a chance to go to the World Championships where he would

take on athletes who have set their bars just as high as his. “That’d be incredible,” he said. “Just a really great experience for me.” ••• There were other standout performances from North Shore athletes at the provincial championships, led by Seycove’s Christopher More O’Ferrall who claimed double gold in the sprints, winning the senior boys 200 m and 400 m. More O’Ferrall clocked a time of 22.07 to win the 200 m and 49.09 in the 400 m. The boys from Seycove had a strong competition all-around, finishing as the fourthranked senior boys team at the meet. Jack Beckett helped the cause, winning bronze in the decathlon. The Seyhawks also earned a medal in the senior boys 4x400-m relay, finishing second in a time of 3:26.73. That team also set a record at the North Shore championships held in May, clocking a time of 3:28.67 to beat the time set by a team from Carson Graham in 1981. Sentinel’s Kye Fedor was also a double medalist at the provincial championships, winning silver in senior girls triple jump with a leap of 11.06 and bronze in the 100-m hurdles in a time of 15.32. West Vancouver’s Youle Chen rounded out the North Shore medals in senior competition, winning bronze in boys high jump with a clearance of 1.80 m. The Grade 8 and 9 provincial track and field championships were held at the same time as the senior event and a pair of Collingwood students took home the North Shore’s only medals. Michael Knowles led the way with a silver in boys high jump with a clearance of 1.75 m while Emma Rostad scored bronze in girls long jump with a leap of 5.08 m.

Jordan Reid-Harvey and Nathan Yanagiya suited up for the tournament as the Canadians battled all the way to the final where they lost 4523 to Italy. The loss, however, means that Canada must stay at the second-tier JWRT level for at least one more season while the Italians earn promotion into the top-flight Junior World Championship group for 2014. The Canadians went undefeated in the group stage, beating Tonga 24-6, Japan 39-15 and Uruguay 36-15 to qualify for the final. Their luck ran out against Italy though as a pair of yellow cards against Canada helped the Italians to turn a 17-16 second-half lead into a 31-17 advantage in one four-minute stretch. “The first half we didn’t attack with as much flare as we should have done, that goes for both sides,” said Canadian head coach Mike Shelley

in a Rugby Canada release. “Italy became more physically dominant in the second half. It led to us going down to 13 players, where we gave up the points. Italy were strong and didn’t risk much.” Canada battled back but couldn’t close the gap in the dying minutes. “It’s bittersweet,” said Canadian captain Pat Kay. “We want to be proud of second. There will be a good group of guys next year. Hopefully they’ll be in the final game.” ••• Four North Shore birdie bashers won medals at the 2013 Yonex Canadian Masters Badminton Championships held last month in Richmond.

JONES, Violet Hermione

Violet Hermione Jones (nee Jacobs), fondly called Goggy, passed away peacefully on Tuesday June 4th, 2013, at Cedarview Lodge in Lynn Valley. She was surrounded by her close family until the end and is mourned by all who knew her, especially her husband of 73 years, John Jones. She was an extraordinary wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who lived on three continents and survived two World Wars and the Depression. Vi was predeceased by her Mum and Dad, May and Sam Jacobs, to whom she was absolutely devoted, and her two younger brothers, Jim (Pat) and Arthur Jacobs. She is survived by her sister, Daphne Langford (Wally) in Chessington, England, sister-in-law, Renzie Jacobs, and a large family in Canada: husband John, children Sylvia (Eric) and David (Susan); 5 grandchildren: Kjerstin, Bjorn, Meghan, Amy and Rachel, and 11 great-grandchildren: Chelsea, Aylish, Anja, Landseer, Acesea, Lachlan, Maeve, Jacob, Esme, Bronwyn and Margaret. Vi was born in 1915 in Nairobi, Kenya, where her father ran a successful coffee farm and other businesses. Vi was very proud of her Jewish ancestry with roots in Tsarist Russia; her father was a founding member of the Nairobi Synagogue. She lived a very happy childhood in Kenya and also attended the famous Parktown Convent in Johannesburg. In the early 30’s the Jacobs family suffered financial reverses, mainly due to a pioneering experiment with sisal farming that failed. With the Great Depression then in full flow, they moved to England in 1932 to revive their fortunes. Vi enjoyed a carefree life as a young woman in England before the War doing various secretarial jobs and traveling. She met her future husband, John Jones, on a tennis court in 1938. Tennis remained an abiding pleasure until she was well into her 80’s. Vi and John were married in London during the Blitz (August 1940) as their own act of defiance in a seemingly hopeless time, just before the expected invasion of the Nazis; Herr Hitler never recovered from the blow and the rest is history. Two children came quickly and they survived the bombing in London unscathed, but the dreary economic conditions in the aftermath of WWII made them decide to emigrate to Canada in 1956. With limited resources and knowing absolutely no one in Canada, Vi and John courageously took the long journey to B.C., and settled in North Vancouver. John obtained a good job and Vi became Secretary to the Land Clerk in North Van. District, a responsible position she held for many years. After retirement in 1975, she was able to indulge in numerous pursuits such as tennis, gardening, and bridge, as well as an astonishingly wide social life. Vi and John also traveled frequently, particularly to Hawaii, England and Australia, all of which she adored. Even more, she enjoyed her grandchildren and all the extended family. No matter how far away the grandchildren lived, she and John would visit them frequently. Although she was a longtime member of the United Church, in recent years Vi joined the Har El Synagogue where she revived her Jewish roots. She was warmly welcomed there which gave her profound pleasure. She maintained remarkable health throughout her long life and was still enjoying a good bridge and poker game up to the last week of her life.

PIDGEON, William Bruce (Bill) also known by his family as “Grampy.” June 4, 1931 – June 4, 2013

While surrounded by his family at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, Bill passed away peacefully on his 82nd birthday. He was the loving husband and soul mate of wife Marilyn (nee Loree) for 58 years. Before settling in West Vancouver, BC, he was a resident of Vernon, BC, Beaverton and Toronto, ON where he was born. He was a very proud and dedicated father to daughter Cindy and her husband Charlie Veaudry of Vernon (Jessie and Megan), son David and his wife Eleanor Pidgeon of Calgary (Taylor, Spencer, and Charlotte), daughter Denise and her husband Brendan Kelly (Briana and Matt), and daughter Loree and her husband Gary Wilfert (Justin and Kyle), both of North Vancouver. He will be missed by Babe, his adoring cat. Bill and Marilyn travelled the world and enjoyed many trips and cruises together. The most memorable was in 2005, with the entire flock, to Alaska, where he and Marilyn celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Bill was most happy when spending time with his family and was an inspiration to them all. He loved sharing in their successes and accomplishments. Special thanks to Bill’s doctors at Lions Gate Hospital and the Care Staff on the Cardiac Floor. Cremation has taken place and a celebration for family close and friends will occur at a future date in North Vancouver, BC. For those wishing to share a memory of Bill, please visit www.hollyburnfunerals.com

TRAVERS, Jacqueline Blanche Oct 15, 1940 - Jun 05, 2013 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend after a very courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Predeceased by her sister Grace Williams, Jacquie leaves to mourn her daughter Ronda Fullerton (Dennis), stepdaughter Lynn Travers, sister Gisele Black (John, deceased), brothers Conrad St. Pierre (Gloria), Gerard St. Pierre (Marcelle), Fern St. Pierre, Ronald St. Pierre (Susan), along with many nieces and nephews. Her granddaughters Lyndsay and Jolie will greatly miss spending time with their "MerMer". Jacquie was born in Timmins, Ontario and later moved to West Vancouver to work for Dillingham Construction (now Vancouver Pile Driving) where she worked until she retired. Jacquie loved playing bridge, travelling, going to the movies, laughing with her many close friends and family, and spending many precious moments with her granddaughters. The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Sugar, Dr. Smiljanovich, Dr. Van Aggelen, and all of the nurses in the palliative care ward at Lions Gate Hospital. A celebration of Jacquie’s life will be held on Friday, July 5, 2013 from 2:00 to 4:00p.m. at the Capilano Golf & Country Club, West Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in loving memory of Jacquie to the BC Cancer Agency, Lions Gate Hospital Foundation or the Vancouver SPCA.

CHILDREN

Difficult Times –Pet Loss (part 1) The process of losing of a pet, who has been a significant family member, may be your child’s first experience with serious illness and death. It’s an opportunity for learning about a difficult part of life. • Talk openly about the situation, bearing in mind your child’s stage of development and ability to understand the details. • To help make a difficult decision assess your animal’s quality of life: http://www.pawspice.com/downloads/ QualityofLifeScale.pdf • If appropriate give your child a chance to say goodbye. • Use accurate terms rather than the pet being “put to sleep.” • Include children in planning a way to memorialize the pet. • Learn to recognize different ways of grieving. Some family members will experience it in a sequence of stages others in waves. • If euthanasia is the option of choice, use simple explanations: the pet is very sick and will not recover. Instead of suffering the vet will help him/her die peacefully. There will be no pain or fear. Next week: Dealing with the grief.
