City OKs res school monument St. Paul’s Indian Residential School gets $30K memorial

BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

The City of North Vancouver is putting up $10,000 as a gesture towards righting one of the most egregious wrongs in Canadian history.

Council voted unanimously Monday night to contribute the funds towards a monument dedicated to the more than 2,000 First Nations children who were taken from their families and sent to live at St. Paul’s Indian Residential

School between 1898 and 1959. The school, which stood where St.Thomas Aquinas secondary stands today, has largely been shrouded in the mists of time. Most members of council did not know of its existence until a request for support came from the Squamish Nation-based Ustlahn Social Society. While St. Paul’s students excelled in sports and music and went on to

become local business and community leaders, there have been dark and lasting consequences from the residential schooling echoing into today’s generations, said Rennie Nahanee, Squamish Nation and Ustlahn Society member. “What was not known was the effect of the boarding school on the students attending there as they later became parents themselves and were lacking in parenting

skills, family social skills, cultural knowledge and their language,” he said. Students, mainly from the Squamish band but also from the Musqueam,TsleilWaututh and Sechelt Indian Band, were forced to attend the school from the ages of four to 16, in most cases. While in the school, they were kept from their families, forced to speak English and faced physical punishment at the hands of nuns.

The monument on the STA site will depict two children in a canoe, riding toward the crest of a wave. The first sections of the wave, which starts at a high point and then dips down into a depression, represents the pre-colonial contact with First Nations and the era of having their freedom and culture stripped from them. “The wave going up on

Train whistles anger NV residents City hopes to eliminate some of the loud crossing warnings ANNE WATSON awatson@nsnews.com

TRAINS passing through North Vancouver are giving some residents an unwanted earful. Resident Per Christensen said train whistles have become an ongoing problem on the North Shore, particularly in the Lower Lonsdale area. “I think it has gotten worse,” he said. “Initially when I moved in I didn’t have a problem, maybe that’s because they were less frequent or maybe the whistles weren’t as bad.” Christensen said he is not the only one affected by the noise. A number of North Vancouver residents have been sharing their own frustrations on the Residents Against Noisy Trains blog; with one resident stating they experienced one full hour of intermittent whistling. Brad McRae, manager of bylaw services with the City of North Vancouver, said the whistles are part of federal legislation. “It’s a requirement for certain types of railway crossings we currently have,” said McRae. “The Low Level Road project, from the last design that I saw, was to eliminate a couple of those at-grade crossings to make them controlled crossings and that negates the train from actually having to use the whistle.” McRae said the legislation states that if it’s an uncontrolled crossing, the train has to whistle two short, one long, and one short, and can also be used under the discretion of the operator. “The train operator, if

there’s anything impeding the track, any safety issue, any person on the tracks, they can use their whistle as needed to remedy the situation,” said McRae. “The Low Level Road project itself is being designed with some mitigation strategies in it, so that should alleviate not only some of the train whistling noise but also some of the actual train travelling noise, shunting noise, etcetera.” Christensen said he understands the whistles are federally regulated and that making changes might be difficult, but hopes something can be done. “I think the one thing that we feel, that one would hope that they could change, would be the type of whistling that they do,” he said. “Some of these whistles are really, really prolonged, they start early and they go, it seems a lot more than others in terms of numbers and times. The intensity of them can be pretty dramatic if they prolong them.” According to Transport Canada, a train operating at more than 70 kilometres per hour must sound the whistle approximately half a kilometre before the crossing, “to be prolonged or repeated, until the crossing is fully occupied.” If a train is travelling less than 70 km/h, the whistle is sounded “20 seconds before entering the crossing and continuing to sound whistle signal until crossing is fully occupied.” The District of North Vancouver has also heard from residents who are unhappy with train whistles. “The district does receive

Train whistle blowing hasn’t made a sleepy noise for Per Christensen or his Lower Lonsdale neighbours, who report a worsening whistle problem. PHOTO KEVIN HILL complaints from residents, usually involving nighttime whistling activities,” said Stephanie Smiley, district spokeswoman. Smiley said they are trying to remedy the situation by “implementing noisereduction strategies,” such as installing sound barriers. John Weston, MP for West Vancouver-Sunshine

Coast-Sea to Sky country, camped out in the Norgate area for three hours on Sunday Sept. 1 to listen to the noise from the CN trains that was keeping residents awake at night. “I had been willing to stay the whole night but we basically experienced the full spectrum of the sounds and noises that

the constituents wanted me to hear,” said Weston. “I thought it was a great example of constituents taking control over, or trying to take control over an issue that is relevant to them. If you can get all the people involved in a discussion who are relevant to the decision, then you are more likely to get effective results.”

But for neighbouring District of West Vancouver, train noise is not a problem. The Sounding of Train Whistles Prohibition Bylaw, enacted in 1958, prevents any train whistle or bell from being used at any crossing within the municipality. Raymond Fung, director of engineering and transportation for the district, said the bylaw was put in place to deal with the nuisance of loud whistles throughout the day and night. “My understanding is that the rail companies are not willing to enter into these types of arrangements anymore,” said Fung. “That’s why the district has sort of been grandfathered into this situation.” Christensen said he would just like to see some resolution to the problem. “These long whistles that they have can be extremely annoying, particularly at night and early morning hours,” said Christensen. “I would hope that they would try and work on that. It’s been going on for a lot of years and the complaints have been ongoing and virtually the same, nothing has changed there.” According to Transport Canada, municipalities could eliminate whistling at public crossings by discussing the matter with the rail company. If both parties agree, a Transport Canada railway safety inspector would determine whether the crossing meets certain criteria, such as whether the crossing has flashing lights and bells. The City of North Vancouver currently has plans in place to apply for the elimination of whistling at various crossings, though the application process could take several months, according to Connie Rabold, city communications manager.

the other side represents our people gaining their language rights back and their culture,” said Ustlahn member BarbaraWyss who attended St. Paul’s in the 1950s. A plaque naming the students who attended the school will be placed underneath. Council responded to the request with sentiment and solemnity. “Never has a report ever made me this emotional and I cannot fathom the

pain and suffering that you have suffered over the years,” said a tearful Coun. Linda Buchanan. “The $10,000, to me, is a very small contribution and very important given the history that took place here in this city. . . .What we tend to do as humans is forget and repeat history. I think the art is very important as a visual reminder.” Coun. Guy Heywood supported the motion but added he was disappointed that the Archdiocese of Vancouver, which ran the

school, was not paying 100 per cent of the cost, given its role in the residential school system. “It is fascinating the way in which the church has come to grips with the multi-generational damage that this experiment in social engineering has done to your people,” he said. After noting that he hadn’t even heard of St. Paul’s until it was part of council business, Coun. Rod Clark added that the Catholic church was not the only organization responsible. “There’s certainly a role by

the government of Canada as well, and for that I, as a proud Canadian, apologize. I think this little token that we’re granting here is probably very inadequate but it’s what we’ve been asked for and I’m pleased to support it,” he said. Earlier in the meeting, Mayor Darrell Mussatto read a proclamation naming Sept. 16 to 22 “Reconciliation Week,” to acknowledge the “grave injustices” First Nations people experienced as a result of European colonialism.

From page 1 laws, including those related to controlled substances, are exclusively under federal control. Sensible B.C. now has until Dec. 9 to get valid signatures from 10 per cent of all registered voters in every riding in B.C. If successful, the petition must be addressed by the legislature’s committee on legislative initiatives which must then either recommend it go straight to the legislature as a bill, or trigger a referendum on it in 2014. It is the same method campaigners used to overturn the Harmonized Sales Tax. The campaign in three of the North Shore’s ridings is being headed up by Michael Charrois, also a former federal NDP candidate. “That’s approximately 4,000 (signatures) each in North Vancouver-Lonsdale, North Vancouver-Seymour and West VancouverCapilano,” Charrois said. “The strategy is we would prefer people to come to us rather than us going door to door.We will if we have to.We’re setting up stations where people can come to us.” Charrois and his 30-plus volunteers will be setting up in high-traffic public areas such as the SeaBus terminal and Lonsdale and 15th Street to gather their quota of John Hancocks. Asked how he liked his chances, Charrois is a bit guarded. “It’s an onerous

New volunteers can still register as canvassers.

Sinecure

P

erhaps West Vancouver - Sea to Sky MLA Jordan Sturdy knew the B.C. Liberals planned not to convene the provincial legislature this fall when he decided not to hand in the mayoralty chain in Pemberton until next year. Not sitting in Victoria will certainly allow Sturdy more time to focus on both his riding and town — a lot of time. By the end of 2013, the governing body of British Columbia will have sat for scarcely more than one month. We’re pretty sure this type of commitment and work ethic won’t help the bargaining between government and teachers or government and CUPE or government and anyone else who works but doesn’t earn more than $100,000 a year. Finance Minister Mike de Jong acknowledged Tuesday that criticism

MAILBOX

of the move was legitimate comment. Quoted by the Times Colonist, de Jong then stated that the May election was “the ultimate act of accountability” as if B.C. voters has given the Liberals a mandate to lock up the legislature. We’re pretty sure that had Christy Clark announced such a move in early May, it would have become an election issue, perhaps a defining one. Nothing makes voters madder than paying politicians perceived to be dead weights. Ask a few senators. In fact, this cavalier move should give the NDP some populist ammunition should they care to capitalize: A reduction in MLA salary for every day the legislature does not sit compared to a 10-year average. You would have to go back to 1991 to find a year when the B.C. legislature sat fewer days than 2013.

Get informed on cell tower safety Dear Editor: In response to Mr. Tracey’s call for “common sense” in the West Vancouver cell tower debate (Mailbox, Aug. 30) — we agree. If common sense prevails, Rogers will withdraw its proposal.This trio of 12storey, multi-carrier towers with unspecified emissions fail to “avoid schools and homes” as specified in West Vancouver’s new cell tower policy. Mr.Tracey writes that he worked in the telecom industry for 60 years

and is now retired.The rate of change in this industry is lightning fast and accelerating. An iPad requires more than 250 times the network capacity of a cellphone (Rogers data) — and high bandwidth is just getting started. Mr. Tracey accepts Canada’s Safety Code 6 guidelines for low-level radiation. However, Canada’s National Research Council has called on Health Canada to revise these guidelines, which are based on outdated studies that focused on how fast low-level

radiation cooks the tissues of an “average person” weighing 200 pounds.They do not consider the cell damage inflicted by lowlevel radiation on the body — especially on children, and when exposure is constant and unavoidable (as in a nearby cell tower). The American Academy of Pediatrics (60,000 of them) recently urged revision in U.S. guidelines (same as ours) to provide protection for children. Comprehensive studies such as the Bio Initiative Report

of 2012 — consisting of 1,800 studies from reputable scientists across 10 countries — report “adverse health effects” from this technology. We have invited one of the respected scientists involved to a public talk in West Vancouver in September. Email us at CTAG@shaw. ca to find out more — and make your own, informed decision on this debate. Just as Mr.Tracey suggests. Mr.Tracey, a North Vancouver resident, offers us a choice between high, “safer” towers, or lower,

more dangerous towers. These towers are high enough to accommodate four carriers each and thus quadruple the emissions. How is this a safe option? Rogers claims these towers are to serve the “demands” of nearby residents; but the loudest demand to date is an end to this proposal. North Vancouver residents please take note — you’re to host towers four and five. Elaine Grotefeld On behalf of the WestVancouver Cell Towers Action Group

Laura Anderson’s profile of Kay Alsop appreciated Dear Editor: Thank you for Laura Anderson’s profiling one of the women I admire most — my very dear friend,

Kay Alsop. A greatly respected journalist, Kay’s optimism, enthusiasm and hard work are legendary. Despite

CONTACTUS

her years, she remains the eternal ingenue — enthusiastic and ready to act on anything interesting or newsworthy.With her 93rd

birthday just having passed, Kay’s keen mind, positive attitude and charitable spirit are the very attributes that have kept her youthful. I’m

sure many people would love to emulate Kay — but few can. Nicole Parton Port Moody

Amalgamate these 2 little empires Dear Editor: Can anyone tell me why North Vancouver needs two mayors? On top of this, the District of North Vancouver is boasting the highest number of employees earning a sixfigure salary. Vancouver has one mayor, Surrey has one mayor. If Vancouver and Surrey can manage with one mayor each why is North Vancouver footing the bill for two mayors and two councils and two city halls? It’s long past time to amalgamate these two little empires and stop this duplication. Florence L. Nicholson North Vancouver

Alley dubbed Lolo Lane in contest

— and Paine’s Alley, a reference to the historic Paine Hardware that once occupied the corner of Lonsdale Ave and Lolo Lane. Association co-founder Roma Wilson hopes the name will now grow on Lolo residents and businesses organically, and gradually become part of the area’s identity. “Naming an alley gives it a bit of an identity and it helps to create a culture. When people feel connected to something, they’re more likely to contribute to its development as a space. I think that’s really important,” she said. — Brent Richter

Let it be known:When you are traversing the alley that links Lonsdale Avenue and St. Georges between First and Esplanade, that’s Lolo Lane, you’re travelling. That was the alliterative winning suggestion in the contest to name the alley held by the More Fun Alley Association last week. Judges in the contest receives dozens of entries from more than 120 people wanting to help give the alley an identity. Rounding out the top three suggestions were Monkey Wrench Alley — a nod to the light industrial businesses and auto repair shops that front Esplanade

In total, the foundation will likely be allotting $175,000 this year. That figure includes $79,000 for scholarships and directed grants and $50,000 already given to the Supporting Seniors to Remain Housed project spearheaded by Hollyburn Family Services. NSCF has helped provide hot lunches for kids, programs for single mothers, fitness courses for seniors, and backed many other initiatives. “Anything where there’s a need in the community, and particularly if they’ve found that they’ve had perhaps government support in the past that is declining now,” Ridout said. Applications are currently being considered by NSCF. All groups must be run by registered charities, government agencies, or educational institutions. The deadline is Sept. 30. — Jeremy Shepherd

As Apple announces its latest iSomething offerings, West Vancouver police are reminding parents that previous years’ models are just as popular among thieves. With the first week of school barely in the books, West Van police are already investigating a case of a smartphone being stolen from a student while at school.

Smartphones, tablet computers and MP3 players accounted for all but one of the 14 thefts at West Vancouver schools reported to police during the last school year, according to police. Most thefts involved the devices being left unsecured and unattended, even for only very brief periods in libraries, gyms, cafeterias or even in classrooms. — Brent Richter

It may be a lucrative fall for nonprofits. The North Shore Community Foundation is set to nearly double the amount of money usually distributed to local charities. The foundation is set to dish out nearly $50,000 in discretionary grants following a windfall in donations during the group’s 25th anniversary. “It means we can help so many more people,” said volunteer director Sue Ridout. Last year, the foundation raised a little less than $20,000, according to Ridout, who attributed this year’s bonanza of generosity to a spring event at the Gordon Smith Gallery. “The gala that we held in May was amazingly successful, it was completely sold out, it was over-sold, and we raised quite a bit of money from that event,” she said.

A marriage of cream and grey

Pale palette adds serenity toWestVan master bath

Barb Lunter

Home Ideas

What is the appeal of a creamy white bathroom? Is it the sense of calm and peacefulness it portrays? Or perhaps it is the feeling of timelessness and clean lines that we crave? Whatever it is, the marriage of cream with pale grey creates an understated elegance within a room. These West Vancouver homeowners set out to create a spacious ensuite complete with classic detailing and traditional elegance in their 13-yearold Craftsman home.To get started they recruited the talents of contractor Jeff Henderson of Jeff Henderson Construction. Their goal was to open up the space by removing a wall between the master bedroom and an adjacent guest room and generate a spacious master bathroom and large walk-in closet. “We wanted the room to feel large enough for both of us to wander around in, yet intimate enough to keep the warmth,” remarked the homeowner. Once the space was created, a large walk-in shower stall was constructed and finished with white Carrera subway tiles and slabs. Miniature sunflower

tiles from Bianca Carrera were installed on the floor, creating a beautiful mosaic pattern throughout. A large contemporary tub is the centrepiece of this timeless room. Fitted with Perrin & Rowe faucets, the tub truly sets centre stage in a sea of pale greys and cream hues. Details like crystal knobs and chrome hardware from Restoration Hardware keep the space from being too sleek and modern yet provide a real vintage modern vibe. Relaxed and comfortable is how one would describe the feel of the room upon entering. One of the most stunning elements of this contemporary bathroom is the millwork by Eurotek Enterprises. Undercounter basins sit comfortably in custom-made white cabinetry that looks like it has always been there. This bathroom is a great example of how white and grey can be used in our damp, grey Vancouver climate.Too often we are afraid to utilize grey in our decorating for fear of creating too much of a mundane environment within our home. But, as this bathroom demonstrates, the pairing of grey with cream or white can be very successful with the addition of bright chrome, sleek surfaces and patterned tile. Elements such as these add an extra texture and sense of warmth to a room with a relatively monochromatic palette.

September is prime time to garden As summer cools toward fall and the kids go back to school there’s plenty to do during one of the best months to work in the garden. To help guide your gardening work this month here’s my September garden primer. There’s still colour but things are looking a little tired: Most annuals in pots, baskets and bedding displays will be blooming heavily but may be looking a little tired.To keep the colour coming, now’s the time to deadhead to promote more bloom.

flowers and clean up any tattered foliage.When it comes to perennials it is important to consider if the flower head should be removed or left to go to seed. Many late summer blooming perennials have

attractive seeds heads or fruit. Plants like montbretia (Crocosmia species), sedum (Sedum species) and bear’s breeches (Acanthus species) should not be deadheaded because their seed heads add interest to the fall and winter garden. I generally do not recommend chemical fertilizer, but a half dose of general purpose fertilizer will help extend the life of annuals in pots and baskets. Perennials should not be fertilized at this time of year. My lawn is still brown: If you are smart and care about the earth, you let See Plant page 19

Environmental Assessment of the Proposed BURNCO Aggregate Project

Open House and Invitation to Comment BURNCO Rock Products Ltd (Proponent) is proposing to construct and operate a sand and gravel mine (“the proposed Project”) within the Lower McNab Valley, approximately 22 kilometres (km) southwest of Squamish and 35 km northwest of Vancouver. The projected lifespan of the proposed Project is 15 to 20 years. The average estimated rate of sand and gravel production is 1,000,000 tonnes per year. The proposed Project is subject to review under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act and BC’s Environmental Assessment Act. The Proponent must obtain an environmental assessment certificate before any work can be undertaken on the proposed Project. However, prior to submission of an application (Application) for a certificate by the Proponent, Environmental Assessment Office of British Columbia (EAO) must first approve Application Information Requirements. The Application Information Requirements will specify the studies to be conducted and the detailed information to be provided by the Proponent in its Application. EAO has now received draft Application Information Requirements from the Proponent and invites comments on this draft. In order to provide information about the Application Information Requirements EAO invites the public to attend an Open House. There will be 2 Open Houses, to be held as follows: at: Cedars Inn, 895 Gibsons Way, Gibsons, BC on: Tuesday, October 1 from: 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and at:

Gleneagles Community Centre (Gym), 6262 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, BC on: Wednesday, October 2 from: 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Displays containing information on the proposed Project and the draft AIR will be available for public viewing. The Proponent’s Project Team and the EAO will be available to answer questions.

There are 30 days for the submission of comments by the public in relation to the draft Application Information Requirements. The comment period will begin on September 19 and end on October 19. All comments received during this NOTE:

comment period in relation to the Application Information Requirements will be considered. The intention of seeking public comments is to ensure that all potential effects – environmental, economic, social, heritage and health – that might result from the proposed Project are identified for consideration as part of the assessment process. At this stage of the process, the primary intent is to receive feedback about the studies or information required for a comprehensive environmental assessment. After taking public comments into account, EAO will finalize the Application Information Requirements and issue them to the Proponent. EAO accepts public comments through the following ways: By Online Form at

http://www.eao.gov.bc.ca By Mail:

Gerry Hamblin, Project Assessment Manager Environmental Assessment Office PO Box 9426 Stn Prov Govt Victoria BC V8W 9V1 By Fax:

Fax: 250-356-6448 An electronic copy of the Application Information Requirements and information regarding the environmental assessment process are available at www.eao.gov.bc.ca. Copies of the Application Information Requirements are also available for viewing at these locations: Gibsons and District Public Library 470 Fletcher Road South, Gibsons, BC Bowen Island Public Library 430 Bowen Trunk Road, Bowen Island, BC West Vancouver Memorial Library 1950 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, BC Squamish Public Library 37907 2 Avenue, Squamish, BC

If you are unable to participate at this time, there will be an additional comment period during the Application Review stage when you will also be able to provide comments to EAO on the proposed Project.

All submissions received by EAO during the comment period in relation to the proposed Project are considered public and will be posted to the EAO website.

Ask contractor about EMFs DALIT HOLZMAN Contributing writer

Sitting at my kitchen table off Grand Boulevard in North Vancouver, my laptop picks up three wireless networks. When I lived in a highrise near Park Royal, I routinely would see 20 or more pop up. If I take a stroll down Lonsdale, it seems like just about every business has its own; plus my Internet provider has blanketed the area with its wireless network, making it ever easier to jump online. The convenience is remarkable. But still, I can’t help but feel wary. All of these signals, bouncing around: wireless coverage, lightning speed cellphone networks, smart meters, standard EMFs . . . our bodies sitting in the middle. Most of us are not strangers to the smart meter debate. I walked by a home the other day with eight No Smart Meter signs on its various doors.The group Citizens for Safe Technology has created action kits for Wi-Fi, smart meters, cell towers and cellphones that state its concern about the exponential increase in public exposures to potentially harmful wireless technologies. However, BC Hydro defends its technological achievement, stating that the exposure to radio frequency from a smart meter, over its entire 20-year life span, is less than a single 30-minute cellphone call. Many, including the World Health Organization,

deny that we are at risk within our modern world. The WHO publicly states: Based on a recent in-depth review of the scientific literature, the WHO concluded that current evidence does not confirm the existence of any health consequences from exposure to low-level electromagnetic fields. However, some gaps in knowledge about biological effects exist and need further research. And it’s the gaps that worry me. I am certain that when I turn down the dimmer switch in our bedroom, the light actually buzzes, and am pretty sure I detect a high-pitched ringing when my cellphone is on charge. These items are dwarfed by our very near future filled with smart networks, sensor networks, smart buildings and self-driving cars. From my perspective, the gap WHO mentions is that all of these technologies have not been around for long enough to know the greater effects on our collective health. In the meantime, there are a handful of principles commonly used to limit EMF, wireless and radiation exposure when building a new home. People embarking on construction should have a thorough discussion with their contractor to communicate their wishes, understanding that their desires will certainly translate to extra project cost.

Make Sure The Investment In Your Home Pays Off

According to Haida legend, the Raven was responsible for bringing light to the world, was the guardian of magic and symbolized the qualities of respect and caring. “I cannot describe our company philosophy better, or a better way to describe a company,” says Jeff London, founder of Ravenwood Construction. “We constantly strive to bring the basic tenants of the Raven into our daily lives and work ethic. We transform spaces into new living areas which can even sometimes seem magical. We respect the environment and care for our clients by using reclaimed materials as well as reduce wastage as much as possible. We bring light to areas of the home by redesigning spaces to better suit the occupants needs.” Established in 2001, Ravenwood Construction is a member of the Greater Vancouver Homebuilders Association, Registered Housing Professionals and Certified Residential Builders. They offer design build services as well as custom construction and maintenance programs for single family and multi family homes. “Our goal is to provide the best Quality service possible; as our success is measured only by the satisfaction of our clients.” Construction codes, designs and materials are constantly changing. The team at Ravenwood are always updating their skill sets to make sure you get the best service and value possible. They participate in industry programs and education and pass the knowledge along to their clients.

They take pride in their service, projects and the happiness of their clients with the end results. “Houses are as individual as their owners, and as unique as the communities in which they reside. They are statements of creativity, of wealth, of community, and of family. They are statements of pride, and of hard work, of transformation and of sustainability. A house is not just walls and a roof- it’s a group of systems that work together to maintain the health of the occupants.” “As products become more energy efficient and building materials see new lives as reclaimed or reused items, we are witnessing a modern renaissance in home renovation, construction and design.” The Built Green program, established nationally in 2003, is a certification program for homes that are designed and constructed using environmentally responsible principles. “These national programs are benchmarks in not only design, but in the very way we view the homes in which we live. We can now design and build homes that are stylish and comfortable but with an efficient use of space and design that will reduce energy usage.” Ravenwood wants it’s customers to live in a healthy space. When they are asked to do a quote for a customer they will always do a complete assessment of their house to ensure that nothing is in need of immediate repair or that could compromise the integrity of the house.

HOME

Kitchen is home’s high-tech epicentre From page 16 The safest option to decrease EMF exposure is to distance oneself from it as much as possible. This can affect not only one’s decision on where to build his/her home (in relation to transfer stations, cell towers, etc.), but also how the home is laid out within the interior. The kitchen and media room are a home’s

technological epicentres, while the bedroom is traditionally designed to function as a safehaven from technology. In this regard it is best to keep the kitchen, media room, office and mechanical room grouped together within the home, and sitting as far away (vertically and horizontally) as possible from the bedroom(s). Furthermore, the

permeability of the house’s membrane affects the overall shielding to exposure. As builders, our company has experienced that steel cladding and roofing can virtually eliminate radiation, wireless, cell coverage and EMFs from external sources. On the interior of the home, limiting exposure can be achieved by hardwiring your computers, using corded

phones, eliminating dimmer switches, installing master kill switches (used to turn off circuit zones during sleep hours, etc.), and running wiring through well-shielded rigid conduit in patterns that do not encircle bedrooms.

HOME

Plant now for winter feast From page 15 your lawn go brown during this summer’s drought. During September’s rains the lawn will gradually start to green up. It is important to avoid fertilizing a dormant lawn. Allow the rain to green up the lawn and after one or two cuts then the lawn can be fed with a healthy topdressing of manure, topsoil or compost.Topdressing will fill in any bare spots, add slow-release nutrients and allow the lateral tillering of the grass’s roots which fills in the lawn. Dethatching is not recommended in the fall due to the potential of the dethatched lawn to be damaged during fall and winter’s rain and snow. Core aeration is possible at this time of year but it should only be done when combined with topdressing which fills in the core holes protecting the lawn’s roots. My hedge is too big and needs a trim: If you are a fall pruner of hedges, then prune earlier versus pruning later and do not prune too hard. Most evergreen or coniferous hedges will make a small growth flush in the fall which needs time to harden before winter to avoid being damaged by

frost. If you prune early the ensuing growth flush will have time to harden in preparation for winter frost. Late pruning or hard pruning of hedges in late summer or early fall does not allow enough time for the foliage to harden of before winter frost which can burn the soft foliage. The weeds suddenly popped up everywhere: There’s always a growth flush of weeds in late summer and early fall caused by cooling temperatures and increasing rainfall. If you use mulch, then you won’t have many weeds but the mulch may need topping up to keep it functioning properly.The one or two weeds growing in the mulch should be pulled immediately to prevent re-seeding. If you don’t use mulch on your garden beds and like paying someone to pull and hoe the same weeds over and over, then please consider giving your money to charity where it will do some good. In general mulching can be done at any time of the year, but I prefer at this time of year to wait and mulch my garden beds as part of the fall cleanup program. I think I’ll be hungry this

winter: During September, many cold-hardy veggies can be planted out to get them rooted before winter. Garlic, beets, some lettuce species, cabbage and many other veggies can be planted to provide a winter feast. Protect those newly planted veggies from rain and snow by using home-made plastic hoop houses made from irrigation pipe, some rebar and plastic. Build the hoop house size to suit the bed and crop being protected. Plant now or wait for spring to plant: Late summer into fall is one of the seasons of the year for planting.The soil is warm, which promotes root growth.The days are cooler and nights are dewy which lessens the water requirement for new plants. And the coming rains will provide all the nurturing moisture needed for plants to establish before winter. So don’t wait, plant now and work on other tasks next spring. Plant, prune and preen but beyond all else, make time to enjoy the beauty of the garden in late summer on the West Coast.

BC Mental Health and Addiction Services have put together some tips for parents of children who may be feeling anxious about school. They say that back-toschool can trigger anxiety and stress in some children but there are steps parents and caregivers can take to help. “The start of the school year can be a really positive time, full of new opportunities for young people, but it can also be overwhelming for some,”

and children. It’s a problem if your child seems to be anxious often when other children of the same age are typically not; it negatively affects their functioning and/ or your family life; and if it doesn’t get better over time. There are signs and symptoms that can indicate your child is feeling undue stress about school.They are: n Attempts to remain at home or with caregiver n Refusal to attend school on certain days (field trips) n Refusal to eat in public n Refusal to use public bathrooms n Extreme shyness, avoiding social situations or events n Tantrums, crying, screaming n Constant worrying n Physical complaints with no medical explanation (stomach aches, headaches, difficulty catching breath) n Seeking comfort/ reassurance The tips they recommend for parents and caregivers are to: n Provide regular

routines (morning, school, homework, bedtime) n Provide clear expectations, limits and consequences n Plan for transitions (getting to school, returning to school after breaks) n Help your child identify his or her feelings nervous, intimidated, shy n Pay attention to your child’s feelings n Ask your child if they have ideas or solutions for a particular concern n Show yourself identifying your own feelings, problem solving and being brave n Remain calm when your child is anxious n Hold realistic expectations that are right for the child’s age n Praise and reward even their small accomplishments These are good ideas but, in my view, not enough for a child dealing with any serious anxiety or stress issues. As a matter of fact, I would say that for the most part these are tips all parents should follow for all kids. All kids thrive when there is a regular routine and expectations so that they know what they can count

on during the day. Most kids will have some bouts of problems or concerns at school and need you to listen, and help them identify the problem and a possible solution. But kids showing the signs and symptoms mentioned earlier in this article need much more than routine, being heard and realistic expectations. Once you have determined that your child is unduly anxious it’s time to talk to the school.What is happening in class? What about in the schoolyard? What has the teacher noticed with your child? Become a detective to try to discover the cause of the problem.Then it can be easier to deal with and hopefully the teacher will be your advocate in this endeavour. If this isn’t the answer you need, consider counselling for your child. Remember, school is great or at least good for most kids but for the few that are overwhelmed it’s best to help them deal with it as soon as possible. parentingtoday.ca

Public Information Opportunity

ANNE WATSON awatson@nsnews.com

Kinder Morgan’s proposed Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion What does it mean for our community?

Public Information Opportunity hosted by North Vancouver District Thursday, September 12, 2013 (7:00 p.m.) District of North Vancouver (Council Chambers), 355 West Queens Road Kinder Morgan has proposed to expand their existing pipeline from Edmonton to the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby. The new pipeline will provide transport for a range of oil products and will increase the capacity of the system from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day. This is expected to have a notable increase in tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet. North Vancouver District would like to provide the opportunity for residents to learn more about the proposed Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion and assess the potential risks that increasing tanker traffic in the harbour would bring, and how the broader potential benefits for our economy and country measure up against these risks. The District has invited panelists to provide background and a range of perspectives on the project through brief presentations, followed by questions to be taken from the audience.

Speakers include: Michael Davies, Senior Director, Marine Development, Kinder Morgan Reuben George, Sundance Chief, Tsleil-Waututh Nation Duncan Wilson, Vice President Corporate Responsibility, Port Metro Vancouver Alexandra Woodsworth, Energy and Shipping Campaigner, Georgia Strait Alliance (GSA) Following the presentations questions will be taken from the audience

A program designed to encourage students to pursue an entrepreneurial career is in its third year and still going strong. The TiEYoung Entrepreneurs program (vancouver.tie.org) aims to entice high school students into a career in business by providing much needed skills and mentorship. Students from high schools all over the Lower Mainland are invited to participate. Armaan Malhotra,TYE program co-ordinator, took the program in 2011 while he was in his final year at Sentinel secondary. “The TYE program is a platform that really emphasizes mentorship from local professionals and successful entrepreneurs,” says Malhotra. “What it allows students to do is learn skills that you never get in classrooms but that are based upon foundations of high school business classes.” Malhotra is currently going into his second year of university with the hope of pursuing medicine. He says even though he is not pursuing a career in business, the skills he learned through the program, such as networking, are tools he still continues to use today. “These skills have kind of changed every other aspect of my life, which is pretty invaluable,” he says. The program runs every Saturday from October

Armaan Malhotra to December and is made up of four components: business accelerator, idea incubator, venture challenge and the TYE Global Business Plan competition. The business accelerator component combines classes with guest speakers who share stories on a business topic.The idea incubator has students forming groups to create business concepts. The venture challenge component then pits groups against one another to pitch their business concepts in front of a panel of judges. And the final component takes the winning team to an international competition to once again pitch their idea.The team representing Vancouver has won the last two competitions. “I think the greatest part of this program is it’s taught by people who are working in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland right now.” Students in grades nine through 12 can apply.The program costs $250, $200 of which is refundable if the student finishes the program.

THE War Amps 2013 B.C. Child Amputee Seminar not only honoured the association’s 95th anniversary, but also gathered together child amputees from across the province. According to a press release, the three-day event held earlier this year in Vancouver offered Mark Robertson, 13, a chance to be a role model and offer advice to younger amputees as a junior counsellor.

Mark Robertson Robertson, a North Vancouver resident, also displayed his skiing device

during the Amputees in Action session that included demonstrations of standard and recreational artificial limbs and devices.The CHAMP seminar opened with a tribute to the history of The War Amps and the charity’s “amputees helping amputees” philosophy. It also included sessions on parenting an amputee child, the latest in artificial limbs technology, and how to cope with teasing and bullying. waramps.ca

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to EXCEPTIONAL CUISINE

Meat pies popular in the fall Chris Dagenais

The Dish

ROMANCING THE STOVE Angela Shellard presents sweet and savoury apple recipes page 32 GRILLED CHEESE CHALLENGE Check out the Taste section on the North Shore News website (nsnews.com) for photos of a grilled cheese showdown in Ambleside.

I am desperately clinging to summer. Every distant patch of blue sky and every waft of barbecue smoke from family picnics at Ambleside Beach elicit in me the naive hope that autumn might still be a ways off. However, I must concede, it is getting darker outside when I finish work every day, and just the other morning there was dew on the grass outside. Faced with the inevitable transition of seasons, I struggle to find something to assuage my longing for more summer. And then it hits me. I need a pie. A glorious, meaty, stick-to-your-ribs pie of the traditional British variety. Meat pie is a food that creates a positive association with cooler weather. So rather than fight autumn, why not celebrate it? Fortunately, the North Shore has some exceptional pie options. Despite the disappointing closure of Peter Black and Sons Butchers at Park Royal, there remains a handful of top quality butchers in North and West Vancouver that offer rich and satisfying meat pies that can make the arrival of fall feel slightly less disheartening. To celebrate the onset of hearty food season in proper style, I decided to assemble a group of tasters to determine the best meat pie offering on the North Shore. These tasters were drawn from the restaurant industry, dining professionals both past and present, who know their way around classic pub fare. The recent pie tasting took place around my dining room table, which was outfitted with tasting criteria checklists and a variety of British Columbian craft ales selected to complement the pies.

Chrissy Stubel, general manager of The British Butcher Shoppe in North Vancouver, displays some of the more than 14 different kinds of meat pies available at the store’s two locations. PHOTO PAUL MCGRATH On the menu were four steak and kidney pies that were purchased from The British Butcher Shoppe’s Queensbury Avenue location, Sharkey’s Chophouse at Lonsdale Quay, Windsor Meat Co. in Edgemont Village, and Price Smart grocery store, which stocks Delta-made Piper’s Pies. I selected steak and kidney pies for this tasting because I believe they are a true test of a pie-maker’s mettle and, for me, they represent a responsibility that comes with eating meat: the consumption of more than just the choice bits of the animal. Though production of meat products continues to increase in the West, the appetite for tougher cuts of meat and offal consistently diminishes. Kidney, properly butchered and carefully prepared, can be a succulent and delicious meal. Mixed with tender morsels of beef and vegetables, covered in a thick and rich sauce, and baked in a classic lardbased pastry, kidney is elevated to the status of culinary art. Pies were identified to the tasters only by number, so as not to foster any prejudices or false

expectations. Below are the rankings of the pies we tasted, from favourite to runners-up. 1. Sharkey’s Chophouse This pie was the handsdown, undisputed top pick of the tasting event. Bursting with succulent, tender filling, impeccably spiced, and wrapped in a light, buttery pastry, Sharkey’s pie prompted a rock, paper, scissors deathmatch to determine which taster got the last morsels. Sharkey’s effort is what steak and kidney pie is all about: a perfect ratio of quality beef to heady kidney, suspended in a mouth-watering gravy, counterbalanced by flaky, golden pastry. Simply divine. 2. The British Butcher Shoppe This was, not surprisingly, a very good pie. I have enjoyed dozens of pies from this butcher in the past decade and the steak and kidney sampled at the tasting was no exception. Theirs was the only pastry to feature an egg-wash, resulting in a deeper brown crust than the rest. For the panel’s taste, the filling was a touch too salty and the kidney had a more chewy quality than the Sharkey’s version.

Though heavy on the kidney content and featuring well-made pastry, this pie was regrettably marred by a rather

gelatinous, shiny gravy, suggesting the liberal use of a thickening agent. Overall, a tasty pie that See Generous page 32

Apples are a versatile treat

Angela Shellard

Romancing the Stove I could probably write a hundred columns about things to make with apples. Raw or cooked, they lend themselves to both sweet and savoury recipes. September is prime apple season.You’ll find lots of varieties in stores and at farmers markets this month. Some good allpurpose varieties for these recipes are Gala, Braeburn and Fuji, although many other apples will yield good results. I’d steer clear of Red Delicious and Macintosh for baking. They’re great apples to eat as a snack but they don’t work well in most baked goods.

Add apple juice or water to a slow cooker; add half the apple chunks, then sprinkle with half the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Top with the rest of the apples and then the remaining cinnamon-sugar. Cover and cook on low for six hours, then mash the apples a bit with a potato masher. Cover again and cook for another four to six hours or until applesauce is the consistency you desire. Cool the applesauce completely; either pack into containers and freeze or ladle into sterilized canning jars and process in a hot water canner for 10 minutes. Makes about six to eight quarts. Curried Squash and Apple Soup

1 medium butternut squash, cut in half lengthwise, seeds removed 2 Tbsp olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, minced ½ cup chopped leeks, white and pale green parts only 2 large apples, peeled, cored and chopped 2 cups chicken broth 1 can coconut milk (light or regular) 1 Tbsp curry powder or paste (or more or less to taste) Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat the cut side of the squash with olive oil and place squash cut side down in a roasting pan. Add about one inch of water to the pan; place in oven and bake until the squash is soft, about 45 minutes to an hour. Remove from oven; let cool slightly, then scoop out the flesh into a bowl and mash thoroughly with a potato masher; set aside. In a large pot, sauté the

onion, garlic and leeks on medium heat until tender, about five minutes. Add the apples and sauté two minutes longer; add the curry powder or paste and sauté one minute more, then add the chicken stock and coconut milk and stir to combine. Finally, add the mashed squash and stir thoroughly. Let soup simmer partially covered for about 40 minutes, then blend with an immersion blender (or blend in a conventional blender in batches, holding a folded tea towel over blender lid to prevent eruptions). Season with salt and pepper to taste then reheat blended soup for about another 10 minutes. Makes six to eight servings.

Piper’s Pie For a grocery storebought, comparatively mass-produced item, this pie definitely punched above its weight.

A local community group has launched a new project that it hopes will make the North Shore a more inclusive place for newcomers and immigrants. The project, titled North Shore CommUNITY, was developed by the North Shore Welcoming Action Committee and aims to raise awareness about the importance and benefits of having a welcoming community. “When immigrants feel welcomed and included in the community, not only do they thrive as individuals, but their families thrive too. In fact, the community as a whole gets better. It’s a win-win situation that we can’t afford to ignore,” said Elizabeth Jones, executive director of the North Shore Multicultural Society. “With more than one-third of North Shore’s population being foreign born, it’s important to tap into our diverse community to ensure everyone is being represented.” CommUNITY hopes to provide newcomers

and residents with the information, tools and resources necessary to turn the North Shore into a more welcoming place for all newcomers. The main component of the project is four community dialogue sessions meant to give participants an opportunity to learn more about the issues newcomers face and the development of welcoming and inclusive communities. The first session is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 6 p.m. at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier and will feature keynote speaker Lionel F. Laroche, a cultural diversity expert. The free session will focus on the impact of cultural diversity in the workplace and the community. In addition to the dialogue sessions, other CommUNITY activities include a series of training sessions for youth and volunteers, a leadership conference and forums for employers and internationally trained workers.

Eagles grind out Bowl win

Second half surge pushes Carson past Handsworth ANDY PREST aprest@nsnews.com

The Carson Eagles senior football team used their big blockers and deep bench to grind down the Handsworth Royals in the Buchanan Bowl, owning the second half en route to a 31-14 win in the annual classic played Saturday at Carson’s Confederation Field. The Eagles outscored the Royals 24-0 in the final 24 minutes, erasing a halftime deficit to earn a comeback win for the second year in a row. Considering that the game is named after his father James, Carson Graham head coach John Buchanan was pretty pleased to chisel his team’s name onto the trophy once again. “It’s always a good win, I love it,” he said. “It’s the best feeling when you win them and it’s a horrible feeling when you lose it, so

it was really nice to get that win.” In the first half it looked as if it was going to be Handsworth’s day as quarterback Michael Lemoine — a Grade 12 in his third year as a starter — methodically marched his Royals up and down the field. “They just controlled the ball so much,” said Buchanan. “I don’t know what the time of possession was in the first half but we didn’t have the ball much.” For all their yards, however, the Royals couldn’t break through for a score for much of the half. Their efforts were finally rewarded with a little more than three minutes left in the second quarter when a 70-yard drive that featured a lot of hard yards from running back Alex Moon — a powerful Grade 12 dynamo who plays much bigger than his five-footsix frame — was capped

Blackwell took the very next snap 54-yards to the end zone for the first of his two touchdowns on

the day. “That was a pretty crucial score for us and it was nice — really good blocking by the line and the receivers and A.J. just sees the field so well, he ran where he needed to and used his speed to get in the

end zone,” said Buchanan, adding that the Grade 12 back was injured early last season and is finally getting back into game shape. “I haven’t seen him play since this time last year. See Carson page 38

Carson rushers rack up big yards From page 37 He’s really worked on his strength and speed and it shows. He’s got a real nice burst and he sees the field very well.” Blackwell ended the day with 16 carries for 142 yards and two touchdowns. Handsworth capped off the offensive explosion in the dying minutes of the first half with receiver Dylan Weyell out-jumping the defence on a fade route in the back of the end zone to haul in an eight-yard touchdown pass from Lemoine. Handsworth’s lead was short-lived again though as Carson quarterback Mo Mohseni threw a pass that

lineman Eugene Seet who was taken away in an ambulance (Handsworth head coach Jay Prepchuk reported after the game that Seet is fine). “I think they just got worn down,” Buchanan said of the Royals. “They were getting some injuries and some players going down. I think our depth, we have a little more depth than they do, particularly on the line. We were able to get some substitutions in there where their kids weren’t coming off the field. Fullback Andrew Liu scored a nine-yard touchdown and Blackwell powered in for a shortyardage score to extend the lead to 28-14, with Jeremy

speedy receiver Haward Mulindi turned into a 22-yard catch-and-run touchdown early in the third quarter.The play tied the score at 14 and also earned some redemption for Mulindi who had a couple of drops in the first half. “One was actually a catch that the referees called incomplete and then Haward took a personal unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after that, so that really hurt us,” said Buchanan. With a deeper bench and bigger linemen the Eagles started to wear down the Royals in the second half. Lacking substitutes, Handsworth began losing players to injury, including

Sinclair kicking a field goal to round out the scoring for the Eagles. Mohseni was named player of the game for Carson Graham after completing 14 of 23 passes for 175 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also rushed the ball eight times for 68 yards. “I thought he had a very good game — he made a couple of incorrect reads early on but he made the adjustments and he put the ball where it needed to be,” said Buchanan, adding that the Grade 12 has become quite a team leader. “He organized off-season workouts for the kids, they’d come to the school at seven in the morning a couple

of times a week starting in January going out on the field and throwing it around. He’s been really looking forward to this season and he’s put in the work.” Lucas Bill led the Carson receivers with six catches for 48 yards while linebackers Liu and Jeremy Sinclair tallied more than a dozen tackles each on defence with Mulindi and Sam Williams each claiming an interception. Buchanan also acknowledged Grade 12 centre Lorenzo Alpuerto for his strong work leading the offence. “He did a really nice job of calling the line plays and recognizing what was going to work for us,” he said. “I was really pleased that he’s developed into that smart leader that can help us and recognize what we can do to be successful.” For Handsworth, Lemoine completed 16 of 28 passes for 225 yards with a touchdown and two picks. Weyell caught five balls for 47 yards and a touchdown while Damian Starnes had four catches for 89 yards. Moon carried 14 times for 155 yards while Eli Matsell paced the defence with nine tackles followed by Matt Anderson with eight. The Eagles are in their second year of AA football after dropping down from AAA and Buchanan thinks this team has the potential to make a deep playoff

run.They’ll have to do it, however, without star receiver Brayden Lenius who moved to California’s Chaminade College Preparatory for his Grade 12 year. “It’s a tough loss for us but it’s a great opportunity for him,” said Buchanan. “He’s got the potential to go a long way. He should be playing football on Saturdays and Sundays. He’s getting that opportunity because he’s down there and put himself in that position so I’m just thrilled for him.” Buchanan was also thrilled with the boisterous turnout for this year’s Bowl, a game played in honour of his father James Buchanan who was a longtime teacher and administrator who worked at both schools before his untimely death in 1986.This was Buchanan Bowl 27. “My mom and both my sisters were at the game and they just loved it,” said John Buchanan. “My dad, for everything that he was involved with in education, he loved school spirit. He used to always take us kids to basketball games, whatever was going on, to be a part of that. It was something that he took a lot of pride in, with students having pride in their school. To see that school spirit is just great and to have it associated with dad is just awesome.”
