NV waterfront museum plans move forward City of North Vancouver council gives green light to Pipe Shop shipyard site Anne Watson

THE City of North Vancouver has given the green light for a new waterfront location of the North Vancouver Museum and Archives — provided proponents can raise half of the $10 million needed to build the exhibit and a business plan on operating costs checks out.

If it goes ahead, the museum will be located in the Pipe Shop on Lot 4 of the old shipyards site on the waterfront and will provide almost double the current space. “We believe we can build a bigger and better museum,” said Sanford Osler, vice chair of the North Vancouver Museum and Archives. “This is a great all-weather introduction to North Vancouver.” Nancy Kirkpatrick, director of the North Vancouver Museum and Archives, said the museum would include three thematic galleries showcasing human and natural history, a children’s gallery and an idea exchange area. “A suspension bridge will span the lobby and lead to a second floor tree canopy which contains contents specifically about history of the North Shore,” said Kirkpatrick. The museum will cost approximately $10 million to build. Of that, the city has agreed to shoulder half the cost. The rest of the money will have to come from See Operating page 3

Plans for unstaffed rail bridge worries port, district officials Brent Richter

THE District of North Vancouver and Port Metro Vancouver are expressing concern over CN’s plan to cut staff who monitor and operate the Second Narrows rail lift bridge. CN confirmed Tuesday that it will phase out the system of having observeroperators posted at three movable span bridges in the Lower Mainland including the Second Narrows rail crossing, New Westminster and Lulu Island bridges. Instead, all three bridges will be monitored by camera, and raised and lowered as needed from a central location. “The centralized system will streamline our operations while continuing to follow See Assessment page 5

Operating estimates remain crucial

fundraising. The city has asked the museum commission to complete a fundraising feasibility study to assess where that money might come from. Council has also asked staff to review the estimates of projected operating costs for the new museum. Currently, the city and district split the cost of operating the museum, both contributing about $500,000 annually towards a $1 million operating budget. The operating budget for a new museum is projected to be higher — about $1.7 million a year. Museum officials are projecting the difference in costs can be made up through charging admission, plus rentals and corporate sponsorships. “The presentation we made to the District was very well received, we will be going back to them probably in September,” Kirkpatrick told council Monday night. “What we have heard from them is they’re happy supplied photo with what we’ve been doing, if there is no net increase in what AN artist’s rendering of what a kids’ gallery inside a new North Vancouver Museum might look like inside the historic Pipe Shop building they are providing, then they are on the North Vancouver waterfront. certainly willing to look at this.” Admission rates are being projected at $7.50. Most of council was in support of moving forward with plans for the new museum. “This has been a long and winding road,” said Coun. Rod Clark. “We have a very dedicated group of people who put in a lot of time and effort so far and in my mind are charged now, and seem to be taking the charge, in going ahead.” Coun. Don Bell was equally as enthusiastic about the project. “What we want people to know is it’s a facility that deals not only with the past, but it deals with the present and it deals with the Anne Watson helicopter team members were once again crew took him to Lions Gate Hospital. future,” said Bell.

In split vote, council approves Edgemont seniors housing Jeremy Shepherd

IT may be too big and too broad, but a newly approved seniors centre will afford Edgemont’s elders a chance to leave their homes without leaving their neighbourhood. The 115-unit, three-storey Edgemont Senior Living facility earmarked for Canfield Crescent near Woodbine Drive and Highland Boulevard won a crucial rezoning Monday, with District of North Vancouver council voting 4-3 in favour of the project. The rezoning of six single-family lots allows the developer to buy 9,741 square feet of Canfield Crescent, effectively green-lighting the project. Located adjacent to the commercial core of Edgemont Village, the seniors home is slated to include a minimum of 15 assisted-living units and 12 to 23 care rooms for seniors with mental health problems such as dementia.

While the majority of council expressed misgivings about the project’s size, Mayor Richard Walton placed a greater emphasis on giving seniors a compelling housing option. “If my father had been able to spend the last three or four years of his life, and my mother, at Edgemont, they would’ve had the world open to them,” he said. The piece of land in question is the only one in the vicinity that could provide a home for active seniors, according to Walton. “There are no other locations, and quite frankly in this business it’s location, location, location,” Walton said. The units may not attract enough seniors, according to Coun. Mike Little, who voted against the project due to concerns about its size and the effect it would have on the neighbourhood. “There’s a tremendous demand for downsizing in that community, but not downsizing to such small units,” he said. The majority of speakers at a recent public hearing criticized the seniors home proposal as a

misplaced monolithic structure that would dwarf the one-storey ranchers on its perimeter. “Ijustdon’tthinkIwanttochangethecharacter of Edgemont so significantly for something that I don’t know is tried and tested,” Little said. North Vancouver’s Cedar Springs Retirement Residence currently has a 34 per cent occupancy, according to Little, who said many seniors don’t move into a facility until they’re in their 80s. “Seventy is the new 50,” he said. Edgemont Senior Living may not be immediately successful, according to Walton. “I don’t think for a second this facility’s going to be full in the first year, in the second year. It may take a few years,” he said. Edgemont was once reminiscent of a prairie town, according to Walton, who recalled both open ditches and the contention that greeted Highland House. A huge number of people fought that tooth and nail, he said. The neighbourhood needs to continue to change, Walton said. The project provides council with a unique

opportunity to fill a housing need, albeit in a facility that is likely too big, according to Coun. Robin Hicks. Monthly rents at the facility range from about $3,000 per month for a studio unit to $5,500 for a two-bedroom unit. Meals are included. “Only those who have sizable means or who have homes they will be able to sell will be able to afford it,” Hicks said, adding that townhouses would come with a similar price tag. “I think I support this facility with some reluctance,” Hicks said. The developer would have to provide the district with approximately $500,000 worth of community benefits. The half-a-million figure is equivalent to 50 per cent of the estimated increase in land value. Out of a total of 103,000 square feet, approximately 18,000 square feet consist of common areas and space for activities. The project is slated to offer 90 days of registration solely for Edgemont/Upper Capilano seniors.

the marine navigation rules and maintain safety,” said Warren Chandler, CN spokesman. “We will still have the ability to place a bridge tender at any of the bridges should we feel it necessary, but the idea is to have the automation up and running by the end of this year.” Chandler said additional cameras have been installed at all bridges, which will give the centralized bridge operator a full view. The change shouldn’t present any more risk to marine or rail traffic, Chandler added. “We have done a comprehensive risk assessment to ensure that the centralized system will not have an adverse effect on operations or safety,” he said. But officials with Port Metro Vancouver said no one has told them about the risk assessment. “They indicated that they were looking at potentials for doing this and they started a review process, but as far as we are concerned, it has never come full circle. It has never been completed as a full-fledged risk assessment,” said Chris Wellstood, deputy harbour master. Deepsea traffic traverses the narrows at least daily, and there is likely more traffic on the way if Kinder Morgan gets approval for the twinning of its oil pipeline to the Burnaby terminus, Wellstood said. The port has also not been informed of whether Transport

Canada has signed off on CN’s plan, Wellstood added. CN’s plan may be perfectly safe, said Wellstood, but he added until industry members and the port have been able to list their concerns and hear what CN’s plan for addressing them are, it’s hard to know how CN reached its conclusion. While rail safety is under federal jurisdiction, District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton said he too is wary of CN’s claim in the absence of seeing a risk assessment report. “Thefirstreactionis,ifyou’re going to monitor something from New Westminster by video and control it, do you have access to all the information that a human set of eyes and brain has when it’s right there in the south tower overlooking the site?” Walton asked. “I just don’t know.” As Burrard Inlet is crucial to the economies of every municipality that borders it and protecting the environment is a shared responsibility, Walton said CN should make its risk assessment available for public scrutiny. “I suspect, if CN is working within the acceptable safety standards, then obviously those safety standards need to be publicly disclosed,” he said. “I think most of us mayors in the inner harbour would like a little more comfort than CN just saying the job can be done from a remote location in New Westminster.”

Enemies of the state

THIS week we saw a shuffling of the federal cabinet. It was more a game of musical chairs than a real changing of the guard. More newsworthy however, was some of the apparently required reading for new federal ministers. Several news outlets reported the Prime Minister’s Office also asked staff to include lists of “friends and enemy stakeholders” in the new ministers’ summer reading lists. This is troubling for a number of reasons. This is the same PMO that has become embroiled in constant scandal and turned into a full-time campaign machine that operates year-round at taxpayers’ expense on deeply partisan projects. Dividing Canadians into “friends and enemies” indicates a level of government paranoia not seen since McCarthyism.

It also implies our federal government is no longer working for all Canadians, only for those whose ideological positions match those of the governing party. By using the divisive term “enemy,” the government is leaving itself open to accusations that it is also actively working against some Canadians. It showcases an “us versus them” mentality. So who is on the list? Other than a vague description that it may include environmental groups, non-profits, and civic and industry associations that disagree with the federal Conservatives, we have no clue. That too is a problem. As much as this makes the ruling Conservatives look bad, this is also the stuff that drives cynicism, turns off voters and erodes Canadians’ faith in the institution of government.


truly Council engages residents every day Amodern

Dear Editor: I wish to address some misleading information that appeared in recent issues of the News (“Open Letter to Mayor and Lynn Valley Residents from Joan Birchall” and “Lynn Valley Densification Plans Questioned”), specifically Ms. Birchall’s perception of my willingness to meet with residents. I also wish to provide an update on the Lynn Valley Town Centre planning process. There are many ways to speak directly with the mayor and councillors and we collectively and individually engage the public every day: our council has a lengthy record of open and positive engagement. Eight years ago I started the monthly “Meet the Mayor” sessions at Lynn Valley Library and Parkgate Community Centre. These informal, drop-in sessions run September through June and allow for one-onone conversations with individuals and small groups. Citizens also have the option of meeting with the

mayor and/or councillors at district hall. We generally need to know the topic and focus so we can research the issue in order to engage constructively. Simply give the mayor’s office a call and we will arrange a suitable time to meet. Of particular interest to many of our residents at this time is planning for Lynn Valley Town Centre. District council is committed to engaging the community in an inclusive, transparent way and over the years this has involved extensive public consultation. In June, the district hosted four open houses where residents could learn about planning for Lynn Valley Town Centre, provide feedback on a range of conceptual options for the future, or provide their own ideas. Residents were able to talk with council, staff and citizen advisory committee members, and fill out feedback forms to share their views. Approximately 1,200 people attended and provided their input. Many others participated online or through correspondence

to council. Staff and our consultants are currently compiling this feedback and will be reporting back to council later in the summer/early fall with a potential direction for Lynn Valley Town Centre that best reflects community feedback. I assure all citizens that council is listening closely to the community on this matter; the process is not over and no decisions have been made. It is critical that we work collaboratively and respectfully with the community in order to create a long-term plan for Lynn Valley Town Centre that provides for current needs and future generations. I encourage residents to stay involved as the Lynn Valley Town Centre implementation and other planning processes move ahead. Please visit our website ( for further information and updates.

Strangers’ kind actions help corral escapee dog Dear Editor: It does not take a major catastrophe to discover there are kind people in this world willing to help. On June 31, my son dropped his little miniature pincher/Boston terrier off at our place to be cared for, while he was away. But the dog was very anxious to get back to his owner and wiggled out of his harness,


escaping out onto very busy East Keith Road. First he ran east, then crossed the road and ran west, zigzagging the street several times. All traffic stopped on the 1300 and 1200 block of East Keith Road during this incident, and I would like to thank all the people in their cars for their kind consideration. But the people I would like to thank most are the

nice young man at the bus stop, who followed the dog on his bike and brought him back to us and Raymond and his two children, who offered me a ride in their car to comb the side streets to find him. We are truly grateful! Jutta Vertegaal North Vancouver


Dear Editor: Your editorial comment (Ahead of the Curve, North Shore News, June 30) that Canada Day is a meaningful recognition of things that make us great is to be lauded. On the Canada Day long weekend I witnessed a group of Muslims praying at John Lawson Park, and met a group of Coptic Christians on the West Vancouver Seawalk glad to be away from the turmoil in Egypt. We have so much to be thankful for, and as citizens must remain engaged to make Canada more equal and more tolerant. We are truly a postmodern nation. Vive Le Canada.

Hand TransLink pain back to province Liberal administrations. So if those committees find it difficult to take the next step, let me stiffen their resolve: Your decade-long reluctance to stand up to Victoria, to say you “ain’t gonna take it anymore,” has brought TransLink to its financial knees. People have had enough — to such an extent that many view the governance of TransLink as being part of the problem. For validation of those opinions, we need go no further than the executive summary of a March 2013 report on the TransLink governance commissioned by the mayors. The summary quickly came out of its corner with a right hook to the chin on transportation governance which it said is: “less than ideal in relationship to the six major criteria of accountability, transparency, responsiveness, clarity of purpose, advocacy and productive relationships.” “The most critical of these,” the report stated, “is accountability to the population being served, which is almost completely missing …” That point isn’t new.

“The silos in which [the region’s] land planning, economic development and transit functions operate are symptomatic of the problems many cities in the world face. . . . We need to be working on the same page.” Richard Walton – June 20, 2013

In our recent exchange about his presentation to the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation, District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton said he shares a concern expressed by several of his colleagues — “TransLink is (required) to plan for the future as part of its mandate, but the funding levers necessary to implement the plan lie with the province.” Clarifying his reference to the three silos, he said that while land planning is the responsibility of Metro Vancouver, economic development is done by 23 separate communities in the absence of any central

Just Asking

Elizabeth James co-ordination. As for the third silo — TransLink — Walton did not need to tell me that today’s dysfunctional agency is a direct result of that lack of co-ordination, coupled with under-funded interference from Victoria. Instead, more diplomatic than I, Walton said “effectively, the province controls the levers but will not engage in the process.” The problem with being diplomatic is that nice guys often finish last. For 15 years, various costly incarnations of TransLink boards, committees and councils have tried to negotiate an appropriate funding model. They tried to no avail with both NDP and BC

People have been saying that since the Glen Clark days. The governance we have endured since 1998 is an international embarrassment. At least, that’s what I gathered from the next two paragraphs that say our “arrangements” are “unique in the world and not in a good way.” Regardless, we cannot allow the victims of a failed and expensive governance model to be further penalized for driving their vehicles when no workable transit option is available. TransLink has been on a wild ride, hampered by provincial decisions like the $2.4 billion Canada Line but left without dollars for its basic obligations. For their part, most regional politicians have lacked access to the impartial technical expertise on transit required to challenge Victoria’s dictates and have had little option but to go along. International experience with light rail, trams and shared-track systems demonstrates that popular, affordable transit technology is available. Open minds among our decision-makers would enable TransLink

question — when congestion pricing was imposed in Stockholm, drivers at least had a functioning transit alternative available within their 360 degree commuting perimeters. But as Walton said in his presentation, “[Stockholm’s] centric model would not fit Vancouver’s traffic patterns … [our] traffic flows in different patterns.” To my last question: “Do Stockholm residents pay transit-related taxes in addition to the congestion pricing?” Walton’s answer disappointed. “My understanding is that property tax goes to the federal government,” he said. “But income tax in Sweden is used for transit in cities, among other sources.”

to do more — and do it superbly — with less. And that accounts for my specific interest in the merits or otherwise of using congestion pricing as a means of raising additional revenues to support vital TransLink initiatives. Walton told his colleagues that, despite its detractors, the funding model is meeting its objectives in Stockholm. So in an effort to determine whether it would work in Vancouver, I asked whether ‘Metro Stockholm’ had a robust transit system in place before congestion pricing was implemented. “Yes, they did,” Walton replied. “I rode their rapid transit system in 1968 and it had been around for at least a decade before that.” That answers one

Amenities math questioned Resident argues municipality is shortchanging itself on payments

Jeremy Shepherd

THREE modest West Vancouver homes are slated to be built on Fulton Avenue, but how much the district will make from their rezoning was a sore spot during discussion on the issue July 8.

Council voted 6-1 in favour of allowing three, two-storey infill homes at 2074 Fulton Ave., almost doubling the floor space allowed on the property. Two homes would likely sit side by side with a third unit adjacent to the lane. Previous zoning for the area allowed for a maximum floor space of 244 square metres. The newly approved homes can have a total floor space of 426 square metres, excluding basements. The rezoning increases the value of the land by $60,000, according to a district staff report. That boost is directly tied to the amount of money the developer pays the district. In this case, the developer is on the hook for a community amenity contribution of $45,000. But the district’s estimate of increased property value — or “uplift” — leaves much to be

desired, according to frequent council spectator George Pajari. Pajari said the issue was reminiscent of the debate surrounding council’s approval of the nearby Hollyburn Mews development. In that case, appraisers estimated an increased value of approximately $155,000 on the nine-unit, three-lot Hollyburn Mews development. Now the units are selling, Pajari said its clear the appraiser underestimated the increased value by more than $2 million. Uplift refers solely to land value, said Coun. Mary-Ann Booth, adding many people are confused by that. “It is not the profit factor,” she said. Developers take a substantial risk when embarking on a deal of this magnitude, Booth said. Pajari said the district should have provided the public with a breakdown of how they arrived at an uplift figure of $60,000. “We need, you on council need, to see all of the information necessary to arrive at the (community amenity contribution figure),” he said. “But for some strange reason however, staff have decided to withhold this information, releasing only an executive summary.” Generally speaking, conservative lenders estimate

uplift while exaggerating costs and underestimating revenue, said Pajari. That approach has not allowed the district to maximize its profit, he said. Despite offering his reluctant support for the project, Mayor Michael Smith agreed with Pajari on the matter of Hollyburn Mews. “I was also opposed, quite vehemently, to the way the community amenity calculation was done on Hollyburn Mews,” he said. “There’s a huge disconnect of hundreds of thousands of dollars on each unit.” Council’s past decisions on Fulton Avenue have painted the current council into a corner, according to Smith. “The blunt reality is the horse has left the barn. We have rezoned that lot,” he said. Coun. Trish Panz was enthusiastic about adding more variety to the district’s housing market. “These are the kinds of alternative housing that we were pushed to explore in the community and I would actually like to see (fewer) financial barriers,” she said. The homes could be sold for somewhere in the neighbourhood of $1.45 million, substantially lower than the district’s average home price of $1.7 million, Panz said. The development gives an unwelcome spot of “intense density” to Fulton Avenue, according to Coun. Bill Soprovich, who decried the lack


of lawn and the small backyard. “That block, everybody’s going to stand up to the plate and expect the same thing,” he said. “Why didn’t they just put up an apartment block?” Laneway traffic was a major concern for neighbourhood resident Heather Mersey, who called for “homes that fit us and fit in.” Couns. Michael Lewis, Nora Gambioli, and Craig Cameron all called for a future discussion on community amenity contributions.

Stockholm system may not work here From page 7 Clearly, we need more definitive information before we even think of congestion pricing in this region. It may well be that, overall, the Swedes pay far less than the significant total of gasoline, carbon, and other transportation-related taxes people already pay in Metro Vancouver. Be that as it may, every North Shore dollar sent to TransLink for little direct return on investment is a dollar councils cannot spend on other essential services we expect. Walton is right when he

says the reason many parts of Northern Europe have developed better integrated planning models than us, is because the political systems there produce a constant need for coalition groups to work together. But if we can’t work together, for now, the only way we can force Victoria to “engage in the process” and to be accountable for its behind-the-scenes decisions, is for TransLink to be returned to the hands that control “the funding levers” — the provincial government — and, yes, I am suggesting we do just that.

THE Navvy Jack house, just west of John Lawson Park, may become a nature centre.

• Vein Removal $99 (10 Min)

Nature house mulled Environmental centre floated for heritage site Jeremy Shepherd

ONE of the oldest homes in the Lower Mainland may mark its 140th birthday by becoming a nature centre. The Navvy Jack house on Argyle Avenue, the oldest continuously occupied home in the Lower Mainland, could become a nature nexus if the West Vancouver Streamkeepers Society has their way. The notion of a historic site doubling as a learning centre appealed to West Vancouver council, who voted unanimously July 8 for staff to return with a business plan for the project. “It’s not necessarily about history or First Nations people, it’s about what existed here before anybody,” said streamkeepers president John Barker. The streamkeepers society and the district are currently slated to split an approximately $5,000 bill on a structural and building code assessment to judge what upgrades might be necessary for the house. “If you determine it is worth saving, it has to have a new roof or we’re going to lose the house,” said Bill Chapman, a streamkeepers director. “We’re currently growing a bigger crop on the roof than we are on the ground.” Under the current plan, the home’s second floor would remain a living space for the current tenant, Lloyd Williams, who has lived in the house for more than 40 years. Williams has written to say he’s enthused about the idea of a nature house on the property.

“It would be a gathering point for all ages to gain insight and information about the natural environment so special throughout our community. This appeals to me,” he wrote. The future of the house is even more important given the recent development discussions surrounding Ambleside’s waterfront, he said. “The house has a lot of character . . . and I would hope it would be retained in some way, other than an eatery of some kind,” he wrote. The house was likely built in 1873 and deserves to be recognized as a tangible piece of history, according to Williams. The district purchased the house in 1990. Williams has a lifetime tenancy agreement with the district. The concept of a nature centre amid the clumps of crabgrass on the waterfront is a fine idea, according to Mayor Michael Smith. “What could possibly be more exciting along that waterfront than this nature site?” he asked. “What’s there now is far from ideal in my mind.” Smith was also pleased at how the idea originated. “We’ve got community groups stepping up and doing this instead of having to pay staff to come up with all these initiatives,” he said. While agreeing that a nature centre is an excellent idea, Coun. Craig Cameron successfully lobbied for other West Van community groups to have a chance to pitch their ideas for the house. Coun. Michael Lewis was also supportive of the idea but concerned about who will end up footing the bill. “I certainly hope that any business plan that comes back is not really just ‘This is how much it costs, will you cut us a cheque?’ I hope that there’s a participatory component.” Just a little younger than Canada itself, the house was built by John Thomas, a Welshman known as Navvy Jack. He ran a ferry service on Burrard Inlet and sold gravel taken from the Capilano River.

Green homes from Kansas to Kamakura n The Greenest Home, by Julie Torres Moskovitz (Princeton Architectural Press, 192 pages) $53

Terry Peters

THE word “passive” can conjure up images of submission and a lack of resistance but when it comes to buildings there is a whole other definition. photo illustration Marken Projects

PASSIVHAUS, or passive house design aims to reduce a building’s energy consumption by up to 90 per cent. This design drawing for a passive house currently under construction in the City of Vancouver shows a home that is well insulated, virtually airtight and compact in design, with high performance windows and doors.


DIG DEEP Garden columnist Todd Major addresses common gardening questions and concerns. page 16

Passive house catches on Dalit Holzman Contributing Writer

THROUGH the last decades, the notion of building homes in more environmentally friendly ways has become much the norm.

Slowly but surely, at least here in Canada, the conversation has shifted onward from discussing why building technology needs to evolve to discussing how exactly building technology can evolve in order to most responsibly take on its own environmental inefficiencies. What once was considered alternative

has now become quite mainstream. Consider Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson’s Greenest City 2020 Action Plan target: Require all buildings constructed from 2020 onward to be carbon neutral in operations. Other municipalities around the world are setting the same tone: Melbourne officially became carbonneutral this year, Copenhagen is pushing for the same by 2025, Seattle by 2050, the entire country of Costa Rica by 2021. According to Vancouver’s Action Plan, greening up construction practices here would mean big positive impact:

the electricity and natural gas that buildings use make up 55 per cent of Vancouver’s greenhouse gas emissions. Essentially, we need to get building green, and get building green mighty quickly! But we’re in luck . . . enter, passive house. The initial principles that eventually gave rise to the passive house movement were actually developed here in Canada as part of the Saskatchewan Conservation House demonstration project of 1978. And though the project also stimulated the creation of NRCan’s See Passive page 14

Passive housing is the leading edge of energy efficiency. It is designed so that little energy is needed to both heat and cool its interior due to its superior insulation, being virtually airtight and deriving its heating from the sun. The passive home movement has been growing over the past decade and now there are a wide variety of these buildings around the world. Author Julie Torres Moskovitz gives a detailed explanation of the principals of passive building construction before taking us on a trip around the world. From Kansas City to Kamakura, Japan and back to Whistler, outstanding examples of architecture and interior design are shown. The buildings are all presented through colour photographs of the interior and exterior, floor plans, the construction history and more.

Passive house a no-nonsense solution to reducing fooprint From page 13


R-2000 building certification program, the technologies and methodologies were never adopted into any municipal building code, thus slowing the positive momentum inside our borders. Instead, the findings took root in Germany and Passivhaus was born into receptive hands. Today, thanks in part to stricter environmental regulations driven by proactive policymakers, there are about 50,000 passive house units worldwide. The passive house is not an overly novel idea. Rather than using old tires or straw bales (like some of its green building cousins), and rather than tallying vast arrays of enviro-scoring criteria (like some other of its green certification relatives), passive house aims to do one thing extremely well. And that is: keep heat where it’s supposed to be. In order to regulate temperature within the home, a more robust envelope is needed to make the building essentially airtight. Standard framing walls (see my Framing 101 article from July 3) are made to be superinsulated and double or more the thickness, windows become triple-paned, and solar orientation becomes paramount to success. The need for fresh air and moisture control is managed by a low energy active heat recovery ventilation system. The impressive energy savings potential of passive houses (many use 90 per cent less energy than traditional, to-code builds) is at the concept’s core; however, neither comfort nor affordability are overlooked. A passive house, absent of typical drafts, is kept at a constant temperature ever

replenished with fresh air. Warming up the space even further literally means either inviting over a friend, turning on another light, or even just lighting a candle. How’s that for comfort? And the costs to build passive are coming down (as with any other newer technology engaged in the process of catching on and becoming the norm). In places like Germany (the first real adopter of Passivhaus), the incremental cost to build passive runs under five per cent more than a traditional home built to code. As a wholly performance-based, environmentally aware building methodology, passive house utilizes energy modelling software to accurately predict how heat and energy will behave in a given (and unique) construction scenario. The design is then honed to produce the optimal result based on the parameters of the site. With 2020 around the corner for our Vancouver area’s target to build only carbonneutral buildings, passive house offers a proven platform onto which photovoltaic solutions or the like can be added in order to supplement the small amount of active energy input required to become net-zero or carbonneutral. It is a no-nonsense, science-backed solution that reduces our housing footprint while creating homes and communities that are built to last.

The District of North Vancouver is offering the blue A-frame building located at Capilano Road and Marine Drive, North Vancouver, to a local non-profit organization for relocation. The building was previously used as a visitors information kiosk and has been vacant for the past two years. The building is approximately 420 sq ft, and will be given in an as-is condition. Applications must be received in writing by July 31 (noon) and include the proposed use of the building and how this will provide community benefit to District residents. The successful proponent will be required to sign an agreement with the District that will include certain terms and conditions regarding insurance, deposit, indemnification, existing utilities, acceptance of the current condition of the A-Frame, and other regulatory provisions.

To help everyone solve some of the most common problems faced in the garden here is part of my problemsolver toolkit. “Something is eating my plants.” Notches, holes and shredded leaves are common in gardens, especially where plants are excessively fertilized or the wrong plant is growing in the wrong place. Before you try to control an insect pest, be sure there is a pest left to control. Often, pest damage is noticed after the pest has eaten

and left the scene. Every pest can be found on or in the vicinity of the damage. If you can’t find it, it’s probably gone, meaning it’s too late to do anything about the problem. Some plants are chronically attacked by insects, which is an indication of the wrong plant in the wrong place. If you cannot bend your mind to realize that plants need to be placed in suitable growing conditions and some plants may need relocation or termination, then you will have to bend your wallet. “The weeds are tall enough to hide my children.” As a society we spend millions of dollars annually picking, pulling, hoeing and spraying the same weeds over and over again to the detriment of our wallets and natural resources. Either we are all uninformed, or we like continually throwing money at solving the same problem, or our sense of garden presentation is motivated by some outdated cultural norm lingering from the 1950s: an unmulched black soil look often incorrectly equated with a well maintained garden. Regardless of the motivation, if you’ve got weeds, you’ve got to mulch. I have continually extolled the many highly beneficial virtues of mulching in this column and

there are no negative aspects to mulching. Mulch does not bring ants or other pests into the garden. Mulch does not dramatically alter the soil’s pH or prevent water from reaching the soil. And mulch is not a fire hazard; people are a fire hazard. Mulch should be applied two to three inches thick over the entire bed right up to the base of plants without burying them and be maintained year round without ever digging it into the soil. “My plants are too big.” Aren’t plants supposed to grow big? Isn’t maturity virtue realized? Big plants are only a problem if they are causing a real health, safety, lighting or growing problem. If you planted a redwood next to the house and the foundation is starting to lift out of the ground, well, that’s a problem. But just because a tree or shrub grows big does not mean it’s a problem or that it’s going to fall over. Unless there is a negative affect on surrounding plants then big is beautiful, so please, avoid the hedge shear or chainsaw. As gardens mature plants can become unbalanced from a design perspective at which time careful and skilful pruning intervention See Don’t page 19

Don’t get caught up in trends or competition From page 16 is necessary. Pruning to rebalance plants should be done in a progressive manner, one cut at a time, while considering the entire context and value of the plant collection. Big, old plants are impossible to replace at the same size and old plants add to a property’s value. Pruning and transplanting can dramatically enhance presentation, plant health and maintain the garden’s sense of place at a significantly lower cost versus replacement. “I want to build it myself.” I admire people who have the courage to build something themselves. Anyone can talk but using your mind to build with your

hands melds creativity, knowledge and execution into one beautiful outcome. Some of the most inspirational gardens I have seen are built by people who have had an idea and the courage to implement it. If you are building hardscape structures in the garden, do some research before you start. Talk to professionals and other gardeners to learn how to build things safely and durably. Failure is an opportunity to learn and individuality is the genesis of creativity, so don’t be afraid to do it yourself but know your limitations. “I can’t keep up with all the gardening work.” That’s a common refrain I hear from many people these

days. When I hear those words it’s either one of two problems: The workload is self imposed or the wrong type of work is being done. Gardening is supposed to be enjoyable and clarifying for mind and body. Don’t focus on buying products to fix problems, getting caught up in garden-trend surfing or competing with the Joneses. Instead focus on working with the powerful rhythms of nature to solve problems, use your mind, express your own individuality and most importantly as Joseph Campbell said, “Find your bliss.” Todd Major is a journeyman horticulturist, garden designer-builder, teacher, skills trainer and organic advocate.

outdoor appeal

such as the home’s address. The numbers on a home can blend in with the paint job, or they can be something distinct.

First impressions

“There are so many options available and obviously that’s a hugely functional and esthetic consideration,” says Best. “People have to be able to find your place.”


While many of us gladly spend time making the insides of our homes look good, it’s the curb appeal outside that first catches the eye. Ken Best, of Synthesis Design, says that trip to the front door should include a sense of satisfaction in the look of your home.


Curb appeal is the catch phrase that refers to the exterior look of a home, and Best says designing curb appeal is like putting a stamp on your home that feels like you and that feels good to drive up to every day. Curb appeal can be created by designing landscaping in front of the home, improving the look of the driveway, painting the entire home or touching up the trim, painting the front

door, or installing a decorative mail box or other front-yard elements. There are a number of questions to consider when starting the process of transforming or subtly refining the look of a home: Are the plantings too big or too small? Are the driveway and the front of the house on speaking terms? Is there something the homeowners wish their guests would ignore before reaching the front door? And what about that front door? “You’re taking all these different elements and having to set them all together into something that feels very unified,” says Best. Even smaller details can contribute to the overall look,

Lighting is also a consideration and can become a part of the exterior design. A simple lighting concept can illuminate a path for guests and steer the eye toward the most pleasing elements of a home, such as its paint job. When it comes to painting, Best generally recommends a colour for the home, a trim colour, and another colour for the door. “Re-painting a house is not an inexpensive proposition, but if the colour that’s picked is timeless enough and it’s going to last for a long time, it’s a worthwhile investment,” he says.

Hiring a professional to draft an overarching vision for the esthetics of the home is usually better than taking the do-ityourself approach, according to Best. “People often try to do these things on their own and it’s very difficult for a homeowner to put all these different elements together and make them feel really unified,” he says, adding he takes special pleasure in working on gathering places. “I always love the projects where you feel like you’re creating a space where people are going to get together with their family and friends,” he says. “When you’ve got someone who loves to entertain and who loves to have other people around and what you’re doing is helping them create a backdrop for sharing their life with other people, those are always the ones that are the best for me because I feel like that’s design at its best.”

Eco-friendly Lawncare Tips


Plants need water in the summer, but knowing how much and when is key to a healthy lawn.

Don’t forget to consider the environment, too The following are a few of the many ways homeowners can adopt more eco-friendly practices when tending to their lawns.

water Summer heat hard on lawns METRO CREATIVE SERVICES

While human beings have their ways of surviving summer heat, survival can be more difficult for your lawn and garden. Certain grasses and plants thrive in hot weather, but when it’s too hot even those grasses and plants can suffer. The following are a few basic watering techniques to help homeowners keep their lawns going strong through the summer. Water when it’s coolest. Watering when the temperature is cooler decreases evaporation, so your lawn will get the water it needs and won’t lose any to steamy conditions that cause evaporation. This is especially important when the amount

of water you can use is limited by a drought restriction. You’ll want to make sure the water you can use is actually going to the lawn and not evaporating as you’re watering. Watering in the early morning or in the evening when the sun is not as strong and the temperatures are generally at their coolest also reduces the likelihood that your grass will burn. That’s because water attracts the sun, and a lawn that’s wet in the middle of a hot day might attract too much sun and cause the lawn to burn. Recognize that not all plants are the same. How much water a plant needs and how frequently it needs to be

watered largely depends on how deep its roots are. A plant with shallow roots won’t need to be watered for long periods of time, but it will need to be watered frequently, whereas a deep-rooted plant like a tree or a shrub, will need to be watered for long periods of time but not as frequently. Research the plants around your property to determine the depths of their root systems and water accordingly. Lean on mulch to retain moisture. Mulch retains moisture during hot summer months, reducing the need to water. Mulch also makes it difficult for weeds to grow, which can keep homeowners

from spending hot summer afternoons pulling weeds out of their gardens and flower beds. Strategically locate sprinklers. Sprinklers should be located so no water is ending up on the driveway or sidewalks around your property. Watering the concrete or asphalt is wasteful, and that’s water that could be going toward your plants. When watering by hand, be sure all of the water is finding its way to plants and not on any walkways. Successfully watering a lawn and garden during the dog days of summer can greatly reduce the risk of ending summer with a lawn full of bald spots and a garden filled with wilted plants.

Be conscientious when watering. The growth of moss on sidewalks or the driveway is a telltale sign that you’re watering too much, as is a standing pool of water on the grass. Homeowners who find it difficult to determine when their lawns have gotten enough water can purchase an intelligent irrigation control system that adapts your watering to a lawn’s needs as well as the weather. Turn back the clock on your tools. Before gas mowers became the standard, push mowers were used to cut the grass. Such mowers still exist, and they require no fuel, making them a more eco-friendly option than their gas-powered counterparts. Leaf blowers are a far less friendly way to rake leaves in the fall or clean the yard after a long winter. While there’s no denying their effectiveness, leaf blowers need gas to operate, while a

rake just requires some elbow grease and a little extra time out in the yard. Stay local. If you need to plant new grass or you’re beginning a garden, then stick with local plants, flowers and grasses rather than more exotic options that are not native to your area. Plants, flowers and grasses that aren’t native to your region will require more maintenance and often more watering. Avoid pesticides whenever possible. When pesticides are applied to a lawn, the chemicals within may run off into your local water supply. If you can’t avoid pesticides entirely, then do your best to minimize how often you use them. Don’t let rain water go to waste. Rain barrels are a great way to make good use of rain. Rain barrels can be placed beneath a gutter’s downspout, where they will collect water that can be reused throughout your property to water the lawn and garden. Rain barrels can be relatively expensive, but over time they will pay for themselves as you save money on your water bill. METRO CREATIVE SERVICES

Creating an outdoor space to share with family and friends doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult to design.


Simple design tips Summer time is patio time. And whether your idea of a backyard get-together involves cocktails and canapés or hot dogs and root beer, putting together a usable outdoor space shouldn’t be too difficult.

Adding colour is a simple step that doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Choose a few main pieces and dress them up with colourful throws or cushions. Buying one or two lounger chairs and an ottoman and table with a couple of chairs does not have to be a big investment, says Samieian.

“In the summertime I think people use their patio space more than their indoor space,” says Sara Samieian of Moe’s Home Collection. “A lot of people are investing in it just like their indoor space.”

“Pick a couple of pieces you really like and bring in some toss cushions from inside,” she notes.

Samieian (seen in the photo at right) says many people are spending a lot of money on outdoor backyard spaces, but there are ways to cut down on costs while perking up a patio area.

When picking a colour to use outside, Samieian says you may want to consider the location of the patio. If it is separated from the living room by just a glass door, you may want to consider continuing

the colour theme from inside to outside so it doesn’t clash.

ordered each year rather than buying a whole new furniture set every summer.

“But if your patio is separated from your home then you can really do anything you want, it doesn’t need to tie in,” she says, adding she’s done a lot with green this season.

When putting together an outdoor space, Samieian suggests starting with the furniture. “Start with the seating, start with the sofa or the sectional, then add the coffee table, then add the toss cushions and end tables,” she says.

Colour is definitely in, she notes. Last year, there were a lot of greys and taupes, but this year’s patio furniture tends to include more colour, such as a white dining table with orange, grey, blue, and white chairs around it. One way to incorporate colour without clashing is to invest in neutral frames but tie the toss cushions together with the same tones. Cushions can be custom-

It’s OK to have different colours on the furniture, but it’s a good idea to match the fabrics and the frames, she adds. “You don’t really want to clash in the weave.” Choosing modular pieces helps provide flexibility. A sectional with modular

forget the accessories. Vases, pictures, mirrors, ottomans, even small tabletop fireplaces can add a nice touch. Samieian says accessories can be brought from inside rooms to an outdoor space as long as you remember to bring them back inside when you’re done, or store them in a place where they won’t get wet or dirty. The key to creating a great space is to make it useable but comfortable, she notes.

pieces can provide different options, such as a chaise and a loveseat, and can separate out the seating a bit more. “I’m a big fan of modular pieces that you can move things around so when you have more people you can adjust your seating to fit that group,” says Samieian.

8 ounces cremini mushrooms, stems removed, each cut into quarters 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450 F to 550 F) and medium heat (350 F to 450 F) and preheat a perforated grill pan over medium heat. In a skillet over medium-low heat, cook the bacon and onion until the bacon is crisp, 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Combine the vinaigrette ingredients, including ¼ cup oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper; whisk until smooth. Put the mushrooms in a medium bowl and add ¼ cup of the vinaigrette. Mix well. Reserve the remaining vinaigrette. Grill the steaks

over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to your desired doneness. Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Grill the mushrooms over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until golden brown and tender, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once or twice. Transfer the mushrooms to the skillet with the bacon and onions and warm over medium heat for about 1 minute, stirring often. Add the chives and mix well. Serve the steaks warm with the mushroom mixture spooned on top. Drizzle the reserved vinaigrette over each steak. Serves four.

A28 - North Shore News - Wednesday, July 17, 2013


Kids respond best when given a choice

A parent once told me that once her child understood why she needed him to co-operate he surely would.

“Mind you,” she continued, “he hasn’t yet co-operated but I’m certain it will happen soon.” She believed she just needed to continue to explain and then wait patiently until he got it. The problem is that our children have no particular interest in what we need from them, so simply explaining our needs isn’t effective. They don’t care if the living room is a mess, they can’t understand why they should use utensils to eat when hands work so well, and they have no interest in getting dressed in the morning and out of the house on time. So we need to teach them to co-operate. In her book Perfect Parenting, Elizabeth Pantley notes that “it will take practice, patience and persistence on your part” to encourage your children to co-operate willingly on a regular basis. Firstly, because our kids

Parenting Today Kathy Lynn

are not interested in what we need from them, we need to be very clear with them. Often we hint around, saying something like, “it would be great if we could all get ready on time in the morning.” Instead, let them know exactly what you want. For older kids you can say, “I need you to get dressed; collect your backpack and be at the door ready to leave the house by 8:15 every morning.” Younger kids may need a chart to remind them what to do, or you can ask them to do one thing at a time. “I need you to put on your sweater right now so we can leave.” Offering choices is often effective. Kids respond better

when they have an option. So instead of demanding that they empty the dishwasher you can say, “you have a choice. Would you like to empty the dishwasher or dust the living room?” They may come up with a third option that could include doing nothing. You then let them know that wasn’t one of the choices. If they refuse to choose, you can choose for them. Don’t expect an instant response. For example, if your kids are watching a television program or in the middle of a video game, let them know that you need something done once they are finished. And be pretty specific. “I need the table set by six o’clock so can you please do it during the commercial or right after your program?” Tell them what you see and what therefore needs doing. “There are dirty dishes on the coffee table and they need to be put away. So, please take them to the kitchen and load them in the dishwasher.” Then pause and assume they will follow through. If they ignore you, repeat the comment and add that you need them taken in now.


Sometimes a little silliness will go a long way to encourage co-operation. Have the pyjamas talk to your three-year-old. Use a silly voice and have the pj’s tell him that they are lonely and want to cover his lovely body. He will giggle and soon he’s in his pyjamas and ready for bed. Grandma’s Rule is another great way to encourage child cooperation. That is the when/ then technique. “When all the dishes are cleared and in the dishwasher, then you can get on the computer. “As soon as you’re all ready for bed, we can read a book.” Have a positive attitude, your kids aren’t trying to be unco-operative, and they just have no stake in doing what matters to you. Be clear about what you need from them. And when they do cooperate say thank you.

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.



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.


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.



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! Y Scan to see more with

LT.-GOV. Judith Guichon gives a Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award to Rosemarie Block.

West Van residents honoured for caring WEST Vancouver’s Rosemarie Block and James MacCarthy were two of six B.C. residents who recently received a Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award.

They received their awards from Judith Guichon, Lieutenant-Governor of B.C., on behalf of David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, earlier this year at a ceremony at Government House in Victoria. According to the lieutenantgovernor’s website (, the award, created in 1995, recognizes Canadians who have

made a significant, sustained, unpaid contribution to their community. According to the website, since 1960, Block has dedicated her life to serving others. She helped several organizations and causes in her community, particularly the Royal Canadian Legion’s New Chelsea Society, which provides low-income housing opportunities for veterans and seniors. Since 1980, MacCarthy has shown leadership with respect to saving wild pacific salmon and is the founding member of the Coho Society and the Pacific Federation of Streamkeepers.

It’s time again for ‘blues’ Coffee origins are considered

Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard

BLUEBERRY season has rolled around once again, please tell me where the year has gone?

Chris Dagenais Contributing writer

BRIAN Turko has set for himself the lofty goal of creating the world’s best espresso.

It’s time to head out to Richmond and pick a bucket of blues (or just pick some up at your local store). It’s easy to love blueberries: nutritionally they’re 10 out of 10, and they’re heaven in any kind of baked item, whether it’s a coffee cake, cobbler, muffins or pancakes. Blueberries need minimum preparation, just a rinse and a quick sort to remove spoiled berries, stems and leaves. Be sure to freeze some to use later in the year.

Blueberry Crumble Bars 2½ cups rolled oats (not instant) 1¼ cups all-purpose flour 1 cup packed light brown sugar 1 Tbsp grated orange rind ¼ tsp salt 1 cup cold butter, cut into cubes Filling: 3 cups fresh blueberries ½ cup granulated sugar 1 ⁄3 cup orange juice 4 tsp cornstarch

This versatile berry works well in a variety of blueberries, sugar and orange baked treats, including cake, cobbler, muffins and pancakes. juice to a boil in a saucepan; To make crumble mixture, whisk together the oats, flour, reduce heat and simmer until blueberries are tender, about 10 brown sugar, orange rind and salt. With a pastry blender cut minutes. Place cornstarch in a small bowl; add two tablespoons in the butter until it forms coarse crumbs. Press half the flour cold water and whisk until smooth. Add the cornstarch mixture into an eight-inch, square baking pan that has been mixture to the blueberries and boil, stirring, until mixture has lined with parchment paper (cut two eight-inch wide strips thickened, about one minute. Remove from heat; place plastic wrap directly on the surface and refrigerate until cool, about one hour. See Iced page 37



After spending three rousing and informative hours with him one recent morning, I believe he is already well on the way to achieving this goal. Turko is the co-founder and master roaster of Milano Coffee, a Vancouver mainstay that has spawned multiple offshoot locations, including one on Powell Street deep in the historic brick and mortar lanes of Gastown. It was there that I joined him to learn more about the latest trend to emerge within Vancouver’s java culture: the single origin coffee. As you might expect from someone who lives and breathes espresso, Turko is intense. His narrative wove from one fascinating fact about his industry to another at a pace that made my head swim. As I listened to him describe the complex interplay between the varied flavour profiles of coffee and our sensory responses, I realized two things: firstly, that Turko is a one-of-a-kind coffee savant, part artist, part scientist, with a frighteningly realistic blueprint for global conquest. The second thing I realized is that I knew virtually nothing about coffee, a beverage I nevertheless consume daily. “It’s not about what I See Single page 36

Single estate varieties may benefit farmers as well coffees that can be traced back to a single coffee growing region or microclimate. In some cases the beans can even be traced back to a single farm. They present a stark contrast to most of the coffees we consume, which are blends of beans from multiple estates and regions, mixed to complement each other’s strengths and mask each other’s weaknesses. For Turko, single estate coffees are vehicles through which consumers can begin to access what he calls the “mouth’s IQ,” the sum total of factors both sensory and psychological that contribute

From page 35 tell you is good coffee,” said Turko , a 30-year veteran of the coffee business and the man responsible for Milano’s gold medal win for their Futura espresso blend at the fourth annual International Coffee Tasting Competition in Italy. “It’s about what you think tastes good.” Milano Coffee is one of a growing number of Vancouver purveyors that have embraced the single origin coffee phenomenon, a growing craze among aficionados.

to our enjoyment of flavours. “Espresso, which by definition must be a blend, is hedonistic,” said Turko. “Its richness appeals to us on a primal level.” This base sensory response cannot be elicited with the same intensity by single origin coffees, Turko argued, but they still serve a vital role as they help us to identify the coffee characteristics that appeal to us the most. Armed with this subjective knowledge we become savvy consumers capable of making educated choices about the coffees we support. Grady Buhler, quality control leader for JJ Bean Coffee, is also an advocate of single origin coffees. But for Buhler, single origin coffees are complex, satisfying and complete in their own right, displaying the subtleties of their terroirs in ways only rivaled by fine wines. At JJ Bean’s flagship location on Commercial Drive, Buhler recently guided me through the art of “cupping,” the globally accepted tasting method of industry professionals. The process involves steeping coffee in a small glass for four minutes, after which time the crust of grounds is broken to release the aromas. Next comes the tasting component, in which the coffee is slurped from a spoon like a hot soup. The act of exaggerated slurping aerates the coffee and releases its flavours. I sampled three single estate coffees, each exhibiting surprisingly subtle characteristics. For my money, the most enjoyable cup was the Gethumbwini, a single estate coffee from Kenya. Its notes of fresh blueberries and currants balanced an animallike gaminess. “You have to remember that the growing popularity of single estate coffees is great for the farmers as well,” said

Buhler. “If a farmer’s estate has perfect growing conditions it can now be marketed and sold under the estate’s own name, giving the farmer unprecedented recognition for his efforts.” Ultimately, Buhler agrees with the notion that enjoyment is the bottom line, irrespective of a coffee’s origins. While the market is increasing for single origin coffees, Buhler admits it is still a niche product. I am fascinated by the single origin phenomenon. The backstories of the coffee estates and farmers make me feel like I am connected to the exotic lands in which the beans were grown. However, I must admit that I still greatly admire the coffee blender’s art. Sipping a single shot of Conca D’oro espresso, painstakingly assembled and brewed by Turko, I felt momentarily transported to a place of pure sensory indulgence. The experience was sublime and indeed primal. Single estate coffees feel more academic to me, rewarding the intellect more than the senses.

Iced tea serves as partner From page 35 of parchment and place one going in each direction in the pan; allow some overhang to use as “handles”). Spread the blueberry filling evenly over the crumb base, then sprinkle remaining crumble mixture over top and press down lightly. Bake at 350 degrees until lightly golden, about 45 minutes. Let cool on a rack, then lift bars out of the pan using the parchment handles; cut into 16 two-inch squares.

Blueberry Carrot Cake 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda ½ tsp salt 1½ tsp cinnamon ¾ cup granulated sugar ½ cup packed light brown sugar 4 large eggs 1 cup vegetable oil 1 tsp vanilla 1½ cups grated carrots 1½ cups fresh blueberries 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda,

salt and cinnamon. Place the two sugars in a large bowl and whisk in the eggs one at a time; whisk in vanilla and oil. Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly, then fold in the carrots and blueberries until well incorporated. Turn mixture into a well-greased 13-by-nine-inch baking pan and bake for approximately 50 minutes or until top is golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack before cutting; sprinkle top with icing sugar or frost with cream cheese frosting (eight ounces cream cheese, onequarter cup butter, one cup icing sugar and one teaspoon vanilla beaten until smooth and creamy).

Blueberry Lemon Iced Tea This is the perfect partner for your blueberry squares. 3 cups fresh blueberries ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice 4 cups boiling water 4 orange pekoe tea bags ¾ cup sugar (or more or less to taste) Lemon wedges and

additional fresh blueberries

In a medium saucepan, bring the blueberries and lemon juice to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until blueberries are very soft. Remove from heat and strain into a bowl through a fine wire mesh strainer, pressing with a spoon to squeeze out juice. Discard solids left in strainer. In a large teapot, combine the boiling water and tea bags; let tea steep for five minutes then remove and discard tea bags. Pour the tea into a large pitcher; stir in the blueberry mixture and add sugar until tea is sweetened to your taste, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved. Cover the pitcher and chill for at least one hour or until very cold. Serve in tall ice-filled glasses garnished with lemon wedges and fresh blueberries. Makes about six three-quarter cup servings.

NORTH Shore Twins first baseman Riley MacDonald (left) gets set for a bang-bang play against the Victoria Eagles Monday night at Parkgate Park. The Twins wrapped up regular season play in the BCPBL last night and will host an opening round playoff series this weekend.

THE main ingredients that helped the North Shore Twins cook up an excellent season in the B.C. Premier Baseball League were all in the mix on Monday night as the team rolled to an 8-0 win over the Victoria Eagles in their final regular season home game.

Playoff seeds were to be decided last night after North Shore News press deadline but the Twins know that they will finish in the top four and will host a best-of-three opening round playoff series this weekend at Parkgate Park. On Monday night the Twins lost 53 to open a doubleheader against the Eagles but bounced back with a dominant performance in Game 2 that started with the man on the mound, Brad Smith. The lefty complemented his mid-80s fastball with a wicked curveball that had Victoria’s batters swinging and missing all night. Smith’s final line included just four hits and one walk in six innings with six strikeouts. The win was his 10th this season, tops in the league. The Vancouver native has a 1.11 earned-run average this season while striking out 75 batters in 69 inning innings en route to a 10-1 record. “His biggest thing is he’s got a plus-plus curveball,” said Twins head coach Larson Bauck after the game. “His curveball, like

it was tonight, it’s almost un-hittable when he’s on. He can throw a fastball in there at 84, 85 and then he throws that curveball, it’s a tough pitch to hit. When he locates his changeup and it’s around the plate, Bradley Smith is one of the best there is. . . . He got 10 wins in the Premier League. That’s tough to get — 10 wins in a 48-game season.” When the Eagles did make contact the Twins demonstrated another strength — their steady defence. Infielders made all the plays asked of them and speedy outfielders covered a lot of ground, tracking down a number of well-hit balls. The Twins aren’t slouches at the plate either. In Monday’s win they racked up 12 hits in six innings, led by centre-fielder Tristan Graham whose bases-loaded double in the third inning plated three runners and gave the Twins a comfortable 4-0 lead that they eventually doubled when they scored four more in the sixth. The Twins have been hot at the plate for most of the year — seven of their regulars are hitting above .300 this season, led by shortstop Anthony Cusati who is tops on the team with a .349 average, 32 runs and 28 RBIs in 42 games. The team has put up solid offensive numbers despite losing the services of slugging third baseman Lachlan Fontaine who only appeared in 18 games before he was drafted by the Seattle Mariners and sent south to the MLB club’s rookie league team. “Lachlan is a big, strong, talented kid and he went the professional route and as the Twins organization we’re happy and we’re proud,” said Bauck. “But every time you lose a player — even if it’s in the big leagues to an injury — you’ve got to approach it as hey, it’s another opportunity for another guy and somebody’s got to step up. . . . It hurts

SPORT field notes

Parry stays hot as PGA event looms

NORTH Vancouver golfer Bryn Parry continued his scorching summer, scoring a playoff win over pro Adam Hadwin in the Chilliwack Open played July 6-7 at Chilliwack Golf Club.

The win came just one week after Parry won the PGA of Canada Championship, a victory that earned him a spot in the 2013 RBC Canadian Open. In Chilliwack Parry threw down the gauntlet in the first round, tying the competitive course record of 63 in a round that included eight birdies over the final 13 holes. Popular pro Hadwin responded in Round 2, notching the low round of the day with a five-under 66 that included a birdie on the final hole to force a playoff.

The pair then went shot-for-shot through three holes before Parry finally won it on the fourth playoff hole — played on No. 18 — where he escaped from trouble off the tee by wrapping his second shot around a tree and onto the fringe and then knocking a chip within two feet of the cup. Hadwin, meanwhile, missed an eightfooter for par, leaving Parry to tap in for the win. The victory, Parry’s fifth Chilliwack Open title, earned the Seymour Creek Golf Centre pro a $2,000 prize as well as valuable points in the Vancouver Golf Tour Order of Merit list. The Order of Merit winner will earn a bonus $2,500 cheque sending them to the PGA QSchool of their choice. Parry will tee it up in the Canadian Open PGA event scheduled for July 25-28 at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont.

••• North Vancouver’s James Elson reached new heights on the global stage recently, setting a personal best in high jump at the IAAF World Youth Championships held in Donetsk, Ukraine. Elson cleared 2.04 metres, topping his old personal best by one centimeter. It wasn’t enough, however, to move him on to the final round of the event. The NorWesters Track and Field Club member is entering his Grade 12 year at Argyle secondary.

Depth on the mound and at the plate From page 40

not having Lachlan’s bat in the lineup but we’ve got so much depth in our lineup it just comes down to playing defence.” Smith isn’t a one-man show on the mound either — starters Brandon Chernoff and Clark Grisbrook didn’t put up gaudy win totals like Smith did but both posted excellent stats throughout the season. Grisbrook, a power pitcher, stuck out 72 batters in 73.2 innings while posting an excellent 2.09 ERA. Chernoff, a sinker/slider pitcher, had an ERA of 1.80. “On any given day all three of those guys can beat anybody in the league,” said Bauck. “It’s nice to have that high-end depth. Usually in the premier league you get a couple of guys that are pretty good, but in our situation we have three guys that are really good.”

Those three starting pitchers have Bauck feeling good about the team’s chances in the playoffs. “Any time that you can run out there with top-three arms like we have it’s going to give you a chance to win,” he said. “The first round is always tough to get through because everybody has one or two arms that can beat you. But if you get through the first round and you have some pitching depth, like we do . . . we look really good matching up at the final four.” The Twins will know by today who they’ll be facing in the opening round series. Games this weekend at North Vancouver’s Parkgate Park are tentatively scheduled for noon Saturday with Game 2 to follow as the end of a doubleheader. Game 3, if necessary, will be played Sunday with a tentative start time of noon. Visit or for confirmation of the Twins’ playoff game times and opponent.

All Eternity

Come Soar with me Sprout wings and fly Into an eternal & limitless sky Where dreams grow wild Futures unfold Take with me heart & memories Gold. Of Peaceful state where time stands still, No lines to wait – no one gets ill. Where no more days sit idle by, We talk, we laugh, no tears to cry. No one grows old and no one sick, The hands of clocks no longer tick. Come hold my hand away we’ll go, Of parting ways we’ll never know. Yours forever I will be, your daughter all Eternity.

Love eternally, your Family

Dorothea (Babs) Millerd Ferguson March 9, 1921 - July 8, 2013 .

Dorothea Marjory (Babs) Stuart was born in Stettler Alberta in 1921 and raised in Calgary. As WWII wound down, she met Don Millerd of West Vancouver. They were married in 1945. They moved in to a cannery shack on the grounds of the Millerd family salmon cannery which sprawled over five acres on the shores of West Vancouver. In 1958 they moved from a cannery house to a larger house, but still adjacent to the cannery grounds. A move necessitated by a growing number of children. She remained headquartered there for the next 60 years. She raised six children who freely roamed the beaches and bushes of Caulfeild and Cypress Park. This busy brood was raised without the assistance of dishwashers, microwaves, colour TVs, or mini vans. She had four kids before she had a dryer; she had six kids before she had a car. Life revolved around the cannery, neighbours, Cypress Park, and St. Francis in the Wood Church. There were always Christmas Eve carol sing-alongs and Easter egg hunts. In 1968 she and Don bought a farm in the then remote Pemberton Valley, and a new dimension was introduced to family life. After Don’s death in 1977 the farm remained a centre for growing and nurturing her burgeoning crop of grandchildren. Her first grandchildren mispronounced “Gran” as Dan. She was forever after “Dan” to her grandchildren. In 1985 she married John Ferguson also of West Vancouver. This joyous union began a new phase of her life that featured new relationships, interesting dinners, and much travel. John brought family of his own into the mix with his two kids Jean and Ian along with their 3 children and grandchildren. Babs drafted a willing “Grandpa John” into a busy family life. It was a happy time. Along the way, she discovered that she had a heretofor hidden, but considerable, artistic talent as a painter and water colourist, leaving behind beautiful paintings of some of her favorite places; the farm and the church. But the focus of life remained her family. Along with Sunday dinners, and family outings, she hosted riding camps and art schools for her grandchildren at the Pemberton farm. Babs led an active life. Her home was a noisy, raucous place that welcomed all comers. As dinner neared she could often be heard to say “there is always room for one more plate.” What she lacked in cooking skills she made up for in enthusiasm. A note on the fridge said, “When I was young I had six theories on raising children. Now I have six children and no theories.” Babs bore six children who gave her 21 grandchildren who, at last count, had produced 10 great grandchildren. She was the matriarch of this clan in the grandest way. She taught her offspring the important things: work hard, love well, hold hands and look after each other. She was always active in her community, and in the life of St. Francis in the Woods Church. She ultimately received a lifetime achievement award from the Diocese of New Westminster. Life was characterized by her family, farm and fun. As she got old, Babs was heard to grudgingly say, “Old age is the shits!” But although she bore her aging years without enthusiasm, she did so with acceptance. She was greatly aided in this difficult enterprise by attentiveness of her daughters, and by the remarkably professional and wonderfully loving caregivers at Hollyburn House. Last weekend she had had visits from some of her many children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. The next morning, at age 92, she peacefully died…of old age. She will be missed. A funeral will be held at St. Francis-in-the-Wood Anglican Church. 4773 Picadilly South, West Vancouver on Wednesday, July 31 at 2:00pm.

Mary Ann Bush, 95, of Keremeos died on July 11, 2013. She was born in Rhein, Saskatchewan on March 5th 1918. She was married to the late John Bush for 68 years. They lived in North Vancouver from 1939 and in 1973 moved to Keremeos. Mary was active in the community in North Vancouver in the ‘50s and ‘60s; she played softball, volunteered as Librarian and was on the executive of the North Shore Bowling League. When Mary moved to Keremeos she served as treasurer for the local bowling league. She was an avid bowler and continued bowling 5 pin in Keremeos and 10 pin in Penticton until she was 94. Mary had endless energy, lived a full life and made a lot friends along the way. She is survived by her two sons Ken and Steve Bush, brother Dan Kerluke, grandchildren Anneliesa and David Bush and four great grandchildren. There will be a celebration of her life in mid-August in Keremeos.
