City spurns amalgamation pitch Debate stalls over what city says is district’s $1.2M share for policing

BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

The latest bid to amalgamate the two North Vancouvers, or at least study potential amalgamation, came

to a halt at a familiar roadblock Monday night — City of North Vancouver council chambers. And, spiking the debate, the city says the District of North Vancouver isn’t

paying its full share of North Vancouver’s policing bills. Coun. Guy Heywood had been pushing council to reconsider its long-held position that a potential amalgamation would only benefit district taxpayers. Though he had initially put forward a motion for council to join the district and province in carrying

out a restructuring study, council instead passed a motion Monday night directing city staff to review existing shared services and report back on other opportunities to expand cost sharing. Heywood called the motion a disappointment and questioned how well the shared services between the two

municipalities are working now, let alone whether they can be expanded. “The level of collaboration, I hear, at multiple levels is actually quite low and there is friction across the board in those that we consider shared services. That really happens as a result of the selfish political interests in maintaining autonomy in

a jurisdiction that should never have existed in the first place,” Heywood said. A previously unreleased report from city staff confirms there is some basis to Heywood’s claim as it relates to the RCMP contract between the two local governments. The report offers See Staff page 5

Some choices are hard.

Parents across the North Shore were still wondering if they should resign themselves to an early start to summer vacation this week after negotiations resumed Tuesday between teachers and the government. The latest round of bargaining came after the two sides failed to reach an 11th hour deal over the weekend. That didn’t leave a lot of parents feeling optimistic. “If the textbooks have been handed in and the school supplies are home, I suspect we’re done for the year,” said Jane Lagden Holborne, chairwoman of the North Vancouver district parent advisory council, prior to the latest round of talks resuming. “I’m sure (parents feel) a great deal of frustration See Two page 10

Moodyville density dustup Neighbours face off over redevelopment vision for area BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

A group of Moodyville residents have launched a petition aimed at countering a campaign to introduce more townhouses and condos to First and Second streets. So far 188 people, almost all from the neighbourhood, have signed, said George Madi, Moodyville resident and real estate specialist. The signees are opposing a pro-density group, made up mainly of residents on the 500- and 600-blocks of East First and Second streets, is lobbying council to allow condos and townhouses in the new official community plan, which is due for a vote this fall. It follows the neighbourhood being drastically affected by the Low Level Road project and expansion of Richardson International and Neptune Terminals on Port Metro Vancouver property. Instead, Madi and his neighbours are urging council to allow each lot to hold a duplex with a secondary suite and a coach house.That would allow the density the city is looking to achieve without giving a financial incentive for a mass sell-off of the neighbourhood to developers, Madi said. “What that does not do is give an opportunity for a developer to come in and raze an entire neighbourhood and evict dozens of families,” Madi said. With a high percentage of the residents in the neighbourhood of older single-family homes being renters with modest incomes, the new townhouses and condos would likely be priced out of their range, Madi said. Moodville is the last

neighbourhood in the city that offers that type of housing at an affordable rate, he added. “To shut down this neighbourhood, basically and turn it into townhouses and condos, would be the worst case of gentrification,” he said. “You effectively close the downtown core to any low-income people.” While the duplexes with suites and coach houses plan might still result in property owners deciding to sell or redevelop, Madi conceded, it wouldn’t offer the same financial incentive to guarantee mass evictions. Madi said he suspects only about 10 to 15 homes lost their inlet views when the new Richardson silos went up and the impact of the Low Level Road changing has actually been minimal. “When it first happened, people ran around like Chicken Little. ‘The sky is falling.The sky is falling.’ But it’s not as bad as it seems.” Property values in the area continue to go up, despite the construction, Madi said And, he added, if the neighbourhood is truly ruined by the Low Level Road project, it won’t be saved by condos. “If it’s not good enough for the people who already live here, why would it be good enough for that much more people living here in townhouses and condos?” he asked. Sadly, Madi said the debate has become so divisive, neighbours have turned on each other and his family has received harassing phone calls and rude gestures in the community. “I’ve lost friends because of this,” he said. The city is hosting its final public meeting on the OCP Wednesday night.

The aftermath of a recent Vancouver drive-by shooting that left reality TV performer Mia Deakin hospitalized has led to a lawsuit involving three performers featured on Real Housewives of Vancouver. In a legal document that blurs the line between reality and reality TV, Jody Claman of West Vancouver and daughter Deakin filed a defamation suit against former co-star Mary Zilba over remarks the singer made following the shooting. Zilba’s comments were vile, vulgar, and motivated by vengeance, according to the suit. Zilba’s statements cast Deakin as someone who associates with criminals and is involved in crime, according to the suit. The lawsuit also alleges Zilba said Claman knew or ought to have known about her daughter’s allegedly nefarious friendships. After being “repeatedly warned to stop,” Zilba continued to make libelous and slanderous statements about Claman and Deakin, according to the lawsuit, which also concerns comments Zilba posted to See Social page 5

Premier pledges to end violence against aboriginal women, girls STEFANIA SECCIA Contributing writer

Following decades of murders, disappearances and domestic abuse quietly suffered by Aboriginal women across the province, it’s finally become a priority to stop it at its root causes. In an effort to end violence against Aboriginal women and girls, on June 13, Premier Christy Clark, John Rustad, B.C. minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation, and First Nation leaders from communities and organizations across the province signed a memorandum of understanding at the First Nations Summit at the

Chiefs, Metis Nation and B.C.’s advisory council on Aboriginal women — Clark said a shared commitment to end the violence is the best way forward. “We have a responsibility to create a world where all Aboriginal people can live without fear,” she said. “This MOU demonstrates that government and Aboriginal organizations are working together to take positive actions to stop violence against Aboriginal women and girls wherever it occurs.” This past February, B.C.’s Provincial Domestic Violence Plan was released, which spans more than three years with $5.5 million available, including $2 million to deliver programs specifically for aboriginal women, men and children affected by domestic violence. The provincial government is also committing $400,000 to the Giving Voice initiative, which aids Aboriginal communities in speaking out and taking action on this issue.

Assembly of First Nations regional chief, said her hope is the MOU goes beyond words and addresses the root causes of violence against Aboriginal women — poverty, inequality, and marginalization. “(It’s) symptomatic of a far greater social malaise that can only be addressed through true reconciliation and dealing with the underlying reality of the devastating colonial legacy,” she noted. “Societies are judged by how well they treat their most vulnerable, and we are no different. We can and must do better.” At the meeting that saw hundreds of First Nation representatives — including from the Union of BC Indian

no details on what the disagreement is about but the city’s perceived financial hit is clear. “There is still a significant disagreement on RCMP administration cost sharing; to date, the District of North Vancouver owes the City of North Vancouver over $1.2 million, and the amount is increasing by over $400,000 every year,” staff wrote. A second motion passed by council calls for staff to “resolve the outstanding financial cost-sharing arrangement with the district related to public safety.” Resolving that conflict would likely require a third-party mediator who would be given full access to the RCMP’s policing data, according to chief administrative officer Ken Tolstam. Coun. Pam Bookham also questioned how there can be any more cost saving co-operation when the two governments can’t make the policing deal work. “I would like the district to be invited to provide their perspective

on why they have not seen fit to pay what we feel they owe. I would like similar information for firefighting costs, which I understand is the other aspect to public safety that is under dispute,” said Coun. Pam Bookham. “I think until they are resolved, the opportunities to find additional cost savings may be limited. I think once we clear these unresolved matters, then it is appropriate that we should be looking at additional cost savings.” In the interest of maintaining intergovernmental relations, Mayor Darrell Mussatto suggested the discussions over the policing bill should be held behind closed doors. Heywood said he would support any attempts by North Shore residents to amalgamate the two North Vancouvers, or to simply pursue more shared services. Following Monday’s meeting, district CAO Dave Stuart confirmed the dispute is over the formula used to determine what portion of policing and administrative costs each municipality should pay. The two governments

agreed four years ago to review and update the arrangement for the civilian staff, but deferred making any decision. Now the district says it’s time to review the formula for paying officers as well. “We felt that more resources were being dedicated to the city than the district and therefore we thought the formula for police should be changed,” Stuart said. Of the roughly 130 officers on the job, the district pays for 76 compared to the city’s 54.Yet calls for service and criminal code investigations are split 51/49 in the district and city. “It just shows you that the actual resources being consumed by either criminal code

investigations or general duty calls for service are almost even but certainly the funding formulas are not,” Stuart said. If the formula were based on calls for service alone, it would shift about $2 million per year off the district’s books and onto the city’s, though Stuart said it’s more likely they would use a hybrid approach factoring in criminal code cases, population as well as calls for service, which would result in a $700,000 annual bump to city tax bills. The policing agreement is just one shared service agreement between the two municipal halls that is decades old and in need of review and revision to reflect modern reality, Stuart said.

Pipe schemes

O

n Tuesday, one of the worst-kept secrets in politics was announced with the federal government’s approval of Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline. The “announcement” was a curious one for a project of this magnitude, delivered in a press release without fanfare or ministers rushing to take credit. That’s tacit acknowledgement that the pipeline, which chiefly benefits the Alberta oil sands, is still hugely unpopular in British Columbia, where 21 Conservative MPs currently hold seats. The decision Tuesday was widely anticipated. Also anticipated were environmental groups and First Nations immediately cranking up campaigns to oppose the pipeline. Numerous court challenges, civil disobedience and potential political retribution have all been promised before any heavy equipment starts work.

MAILBOX

Opponents of the pipeline — who according to polls make up the majority of British Columbians — have repeatedly charged that the National Energy Board recommendation overlooks significant environmental issues. Even voters in Kitimat, which would probably gain the most from the project, symbolically rejected the pipeline. That’s all been noted by the province — a significant wild card — which set out five conditions that must be met before Victoria will give the project its blessing. The province doesn’t have a veto, but it can create significant difficulties for the pipeline. So while the decision may have been announced, the political and legal battles are just beginning. As one pundit joked wryly, the only sure pipeline announced Tuesday was the one transporting lawyers to the frontlines of an issue that won’t be resolved any time soon.

Motel ‘classically nice,’ not outdated Dear Editor: I was sitting having breakfast in the Grouse Inn on Capilano Road when I picked up your newspaper of Wednesday, May 28 and read the article on page 1, Highrises Proposed for Lower Capilano. Paragraph 2 said, “Pacific Gate Investments has applied to build a 23- and a 19-storey tower, housing between 262 and 280 units, on the site occupied by the Grouse Inn and a gas station.” The third paragraph from the end continued, “The development is in accordance with the district’s vision of a village community centre on the spot, according to a district report penned by community planner Tamsin Guppy. Hotels

like the Grouse Inn are increasingly outdated, according to the report.” I have stayed at the Grouse Inn a number of times in the past, and would continue to do so. Each time I’ve been there, it has been fairly full, which questions the above statement, “hotels like the Grouse Inn are increasingly outdated.” I have found the two-storey Grouse Inn to be clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, with free parking, free continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi. There is something classically nice about being able to see your car right in front of your motel room, and not having to squeeze into a crowded elevator with several other people and their luggage.

CONTACTUS

If the Grouse Inn is outdated, then so are a number of other motel/ hotel structures near the Grouse Inn, such as Best Western Inn and Suites, Travelodge, Comfort Inn and Suites and North Vancouver Hotel.

I have found it difficult in the past to find a reasonably priced room in North Vancouver and hope that the Grouse Inn and others of similar design continue to provide accommodation in the area. I’ll continue to stay as

long as it remains as is. Otherwise, it would be good if the commercial building planned as part of the development has motel accommodation, but I doubt that it will. Margaret Cochran Qualicum Beach

Retired teacher does the math Dear Editor: I retired from teaching in 2001. My B.Ed. degree (five years at the University of Victoria) plus 35 years of teaching in secondary schools in North Vancouver provided an annual 2001 salary of $60,113.What if I had continued to teach until this year (2014)? My annual salary this year would have been $76,220.52.That is a

13 year increase of 26.8 per cent. About two per cent per year overall. Compare this to a BC MLA. In 2001 my MLA received a salary of $72,100. An MLA now receives a salary of $101,859. So in the same 13 year period an MLA enjoyed a salary increase of 41.3 per cent. How about our B.C.

premier? The premier’s salary in 2001 was $117,000. Christy Clark is the happy recipient of a 2014 annual salary of $193,532.That’s actually an increase of 65.4 per cent in the same 13 years. Do you find this fair? Christy Clark thinks it is fair. I don’t. Stu McDonald Gibsons

Conservatives’ online spying Bill C-300 goes too far Dear Editor: Kudos to the North Shore News for the May 25 editorial No Place to Hide. The Conservative government under Stephen Harper is indeed trying to turn us into a police state with constant and unregulated monitoring. I urge everyone who is concerned with their online privacy to write their MP and let them know we will not stand for the government’s intrusion into our lives.

‘Extreme’ residential growth is unsustainable Dear Editor: With reference to the article Highrises Proposed for Lower Capilano (May 28), I have serious concerns regarding the residential towers proposed for the Grouse Inn and adjacent former gas station site at 2010 Marine Drive. We cannot continue to support this kind of extreme residential growth when traffic gridlock is the Number 1 issue across the North Shore.We haven’t even realized the impact other development projects (such as

Evelyn Drive or Park Royal’s proposed residential expansion) will have on an already serious traffic problem. And what is the status of Larco’s development proposal for 2035 Fullerton? This project will only contribute to the nightmare. Please do not try to tell us that people will take transit, or that we need more people in concentrated areas to make public transit viable.

North Shore decided that massive increases in density is not the solution. I believe the majority of residents feel such density increases are destroying our quality of life. Infrastructure has not kept up with the population growth. Lions Gate Hospital is in desperate need of a new CT scanner.We’re having trouble scrounging up money to replace the existing scanner, let alone buy an additional one. If additional tax dollars from new development is the answer, why are we

still unable to afford more buses or another SeaBus or a new CT scanner?You can’t turn around without encountering another massive development. We need to rethink this insatiable quest to develop with ever-increasing density.We have finite resources (water, land) and infrastructure (roads, sewage, hospital capacity, etc.). It is not possible to accommodate an infinite number of people, so the question that must be put

forward is not how many can we accommodate, it is how many should we? This is for citizens to decide, not developers. Development should happen at a much slower, more natural pace. Continuous growth is not only unsustainable, it creates inherent problems.We will pay a terrible price for endless growth, and creating high density neighbourhoods will not change the fact that perpetual population and economic growth are not solutions, rather, they

are the problem itself. We need to put a stop to this before it’s too late and the only thing that’s achieved is the destruction of the very qualities that made the North Shore such a great place to live. If this means rescinding the OCP, then so be it. I encourage like-minded citizens to make your opinion known by sending an email to dnvcouncil@dnv. org. Melinda Slater West Vancouver

Boarders: unplug or risk an accident Dear Editor: Yesterday while driving at lunch time on a very busy Marine Drive in North Vancouver, I was astounded at what I saw: a young man on his skateboard, listening to music, wearing earplugs, with his head down using his phone.

He was quite oblivious to what was happening around him and only noticed the car turning right in front of him when the driver blasted on his horn several times. If the driver had happened to be watching other cars at that exact moment, there is no doubt

in my mind that the young man would have been hit. I’m all for skateboards, cellphones and listening to music — but please remind your kids about the proper place to do this and it’s not on a major road. Willow Hayden West Vancouver

CapU running out of fat to cut Concerns linger over program cuts and future course offerings BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

Capilano University has passed the school’s 2014 budget and a policy that will ostensibly bring it in line with a judge’s ruling to make last year’s program cuts legal. After running into a $1.4million budget shortfall last year, the board cut a number of non-degree granting programs including studio art, textile art, commerce and computer science.The Capilano Faculty Association took the administration to court over the cuts because the board failed to develop a policy on the discontinuance of courses that had been vetted by university senate as required under the University Act.The judge’s ruling specified that the policy must apply not only to programs coming under the knife this year, but also the ones cut last year — an awkward task for the board members who lack a time machine. The board delayed passing the budget last month in order to send its draft policy to the senate, which made comments on it but did not pass any directly related resolution. The board passed an interim discontinuance policy Tuesday night, intended to be revisited and developed with more consultation, starting in the fall.

But big concerns linger among some faculty, senate and board members about the way the new policy is applied and the lack of detail it contains about process so the university may not yet be out of the legal woods. “I think the discomfort here tonight was people going back and saying ‘Nothing that’s in that policy reflects what actually happened with the programs from before,” said association presidentelect Brent Calvert. “As far as following up directly on the decision tonight, that’s something that will have to be discussed at the executive and discussed with membership to see what are options are.There certainly are options.” The vast majority of board members, however, were content the policy will bring them into compliance with the University Act. This year’s budget challenged the board and staff to come up with fiveper cent cuts across each department in order to offset a $2.2-million shortfall. While the board may have slayed the deficit dragon this year, next year’s budget is already looking more ominous, with less fat to be cut. “My program can’t go through another five per cent next year and I know most programs that found five per cent couldn’t do it again,”

said Stephen Williams, board and faculty member in the music therapy program. “On a services level in the past couple of years, we’ve got to a leanness that’s starting to hurt.” That sentiment was echoed by newly appointed chancellor Ken Haycock who stressed the discontinuance policy is going to become a highly important part of the budgeting process unless Cap can get out of its position of being the

second-lowest funded post-secondary school in B.C., including colleges and universities. “I personally don’t think anyone should be under the illusion that can be done again so what you have to start looking at is what are the programs you’re going to protect at this underfunded level and which one’s you’re going to have to let go,” he said. The province has signalled it will continue to reduce university operating

grants in favour of courses that contribute to the B.C. Jobs Plan, mainly aimed at getting skilled trades workers into the oil and gas extraction careers. “We at Cap have none of those programs in our mix currently and maybe shouldn’t,” said Kris Bulcroft, university president. “The dance we’re going to have to do with the government is going to be an interesting one, indeed.” Today, there still remains some protest art on campus

Two sides far apart on class size, composition From page 3 at being caught in the middle.” Schools were closed Monday and Tuesday as parents of younger children scrambled to arrange child care and get artwork home two weeks early. Lisa Dooling, a parent with three teens at Seycove secondary, said her Grade 9 daughter doesn’t know if she should be preparing for classroom exams or not. Besides marks for students in Grade 12, most families also don’t know when or if they will get report cards or marks for the year. Dooling said it’s an unfortunate end to school for kids who are graduating this year. “It wasn’t like the usual end of school,” she said. “I actually felt for the kids who are leaving.That will be the end of their school. And it ended on a sour note.” Leah James, a mom of three boys aged 8, 13 and 16, said she was happy the school managed to quickly organize a ceremony for her middle son’s Grade 7 class before school ended.

“I know a lot of parents who are in a mad rush now to find activities faster than we intended,” she added. “A lot of them are already full.We thought we had two weeks.” Day camps organized by West Vancouver’s recreation department for the last two weeks of June filled up quickly, said Donna Powers, spokeswoman for the municipality. “They are all full or very near capacity,” with 350 children registered, she said. Teachers held rallies on Monday and were back on the picket lines Tuesday morning after bargaining sessions over the weekend ended in public acrimony expressed in duelling press conferences Monday. On Monday morning, Jim Iker, president of the B.C. Teachers Federation, said government negotiators had “squandered an opportunity” to get a deal. He said teachers had reduced their wage demands to 8 per cent over five years. Teachers also asked for a bigger signing bonus of $5,000.

Iker angrily accused the government of going backwards on its salary offer. He said teachers had proposed two new education funds to address class size and composition issues. Hours later, the government’s chief negotiator Peter Cameron accused Iker of painting a “false” picture of the bargaining sessions. Cameron said in addition to the salary proposals “there’s a truckload of benefit provisions” being requested by the teachers union. “They still want more than double” what other public sector unions have settled for, he said. Government negotiators added the union’s proposal to create special funds for class sizes had no cost attached to it and was akin to writing a blank cheque. James said she’s still hoping for a deal by the end of the school year, so the dispute won’t drag into September. “I just don’t want to keep it happening every year,” she said.

Social media comments removed From page 3 her Facebook page. “The slander was maliciously published by the defendant with the wicked intent to harm and destroy the professional reputations of Ms. Deakin and Ms. Claman,” according to the suit. The comments were subsequently removed from Facebook; however, Zilba added a new post Friday,

letting her friends know the issue is in the hands of her lawyers. “They are eager to take on this case,” she wrote. There is a lengthy backstory to the acrimony between Claman and Zilba. In 2012, Claman received a string of threatening messages from a grammar-challenged texter purporting to be a friend of Zilba. “If you so much as say 1 thing to mary tomorrow you will regret it

I promise,” the party texted, according to a transcript supplied by Claman’s lawyer at the time. The messages appeared to stem from something Claman did to Zilba during the second season of Real Housewives ofVancouver. Claman reported the incident to police and retained a bodyguard, according to her lawyer, who spoke to the North Shore News in 2012.

Double parking raises citizen concern Bylaw officer safety cited as reason for unpopular practice JEREMY SHEPHERD jshepherd@nsnews.com

Double-parking means double danger, according to one West Vancouver resident who has petitioned the district’s bylaw officers to change their ways. When handing out parking tickets, bylaw officers typically doublepark. However, this creates frequent, unsafe situations on Bellevue Avenue,

according to 20-year resident Sarina McKenzie. “There’s lot of kids and there’s lots of older people, and somebody’s going to get creamed,” she said. After finding her complaints fell on deaf ears, McKenzie took photographs of bylaw officers double-parked while a nearby space was available. “Why are they double parking when there’s a parking spot?” she asked. However, double-

parking is the safest way to handle what can be a dangerous situation, explained the district’s director of bylaws Mark Chan. Bylaw officers need to approach illegally parked cars from the driver’s side door in order to document the infraction with photos or talk to the driver. However, standing there puts the officers in the path of oncoming traffic. Parking slightly behind and parallel to the car in question gives the bylaw officers a safe pocket to work in, Chan explained. “If they’re standing by the driver’s side door and

they don’t create this safe pocket, there’s a risk that the officer can get hit by a car,” he said. However, McKenzie is still worried about cars veering around the bylaw officer’s car and into oncoming traffic. “I’m not one of your notorious people who’s on a mission to save the world,” she said, laughing.

“But I do have a fiveyear-old . . . and I’m not prepared to have the elderly or young people hurt.” Most drivers know when it’s safe and legal to pass, according to Chan. “In our experience, drivers are pretty accustomed to seeing this kind of situation,” he said. “It may create

some kind of temporary inconvenience for drivers, but . . . there’s good reasons for why we do this.” Besides emergency lights, bylaw vehicles display a Notice of Frequent Stops sign. Chan added that West Vancouver police and many other communities use the ticketing technique.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to HOME & GARDEN

Public art a powerful force

Columnist Barb Lunter offers ideas to help celebrate this special time of year. page 14

Writer Todd Major engages in a discussion with readers. page 18

I challenge readers to think about the pieces of public art they have seen in the community over the years. There’s the obvious ones, like Veil, the splash of colourful neon decorating the northwest corner of the Centennial Theatre facade, or Douglas Senft’s undulating steel beams of his piece Cathedral on Esplanade. How about the striking laminated cedar and stainless steel Lost Stream Found on Mount Seymour Parkway or The Long Ascent off Keith Road, an equestrian sculpture of a bronze and steel horse that pays homage to the workforce of yore? It’s a fun exercise, one I went through myself when I first joined North Vancouver’s public art advisory committee a couple of years ago. As a member of the committee I get to see firsthand the passion and commitment needed to artistically enhance the character of our community and it’s not always a smooth ride. Public art is exactly that, it’s public, and the character of its expression needs to be appropriate for it’s locale.

Next time you pass the intersection of 21st and Lonsdale take a moment and look at the new piece of public art situated in the green space just south of the Gordon Smith Gallery. The art piece, called The Meeting, was created by Chinese sculptor Wang Shugang and is composed of eight life-sized squatting red men grouped in a circle. It’s a beautiful piece of work that stimulates an immediate response from the viewer and has the unique facility of drawing someone in. The Meeting was one of the most photographed pieces of public art in Vancouver’s international sculpture Biennale and now it makes North Vancouver its home for the next two years. It may come as a surprise to some readers but the City and District of North Vancouver between them have more than 100 pieces of public art in various locales, including city parks, public plazas, nature trails and boulevards. Each piece of public art in their collection is a unique artwork commissioned specifically for a given location.

Building by Design Many readers may remember the big fuss over the 17-foot tree-like stainless steel structure called Mirara that was proposed for Deep Cove some years back. Certain individuals thought the sculpture looked like an oversized bong — an apparatus to smoke marijuana — and before long the installation was stopped in its tracks. I always thought the correlation to be amusing but a little far-fetched but once the image was implanted there seemed to be no turning back. The piece ultimately found a happy home in Princess Park. This kerfuffle happened before my time on the committee but has made me well aware of the power of public art to stir public emotion. And in that lies its magic. North Vancouver has an excellent public art program that looks to stay

Home Ideas

If you have a graduate in your home this year you may want to host a special dinner or perhaps a party in their honour. There are many ideas for decorating your home and table for graduation. Here are two of my favourites to celebrate this special time of year.

GRAND OPENING ON THE NORTH SHORE

Graduation Pillar Candle I saw this idea at a friend’s home last year and thought it was really fun. Simply make colour photocopies of a few pages of your graduate’s yearbook. (Last year’s is fine if this year’s copy is not out yet). Using a clear, glass cylinder vase (available at your local dollar store), wrap the colour photocopies around the glass and secure with tape. You may require two or three pages for each vase.

Themed centrepieces are a nice touch From page 14 evening and make for great conversation. Graduation Cap Centrepiece For this idea you will require a round, cardboard box (available at Michaels), a black pushpin and a black foam board.You will also need a glue gun, tassel and

black craft spray paint. To make the hat, spray paint the cardboard hat box with the black spray paint. Let dry. Cut the black foam board into a perfect square shape that will fit on the top of the round box. Using your glue gun, attach the board to the top of the box and let dry. Attach your tassel with the black

pushpin in the centre of the foam box and place in the centre of the table. The box may be used as a container for a flower arrangement or perhaps filled with party favors. Barb Lunter is a freelance writer with a passion for home decor, entertaining and floral design. barb@lunter.ca lunter.ca

Column elicits response

My May 14 column Argument Falls Short that discussed some of the issues related to invasive plants seems to have “fallen short” with some readers. To those readers who were offended by my comments — I apologize. If you have read my column over the years you will know that I am a strong supporter of the right plant for the right place, organic growing methods and preservation of the environment. And for the record, I would never tell anyone to plant certain invasives in their garden. My discussion of the worldwide colonization by invasive plant species was meant to shine a light on the futility and ineffectiveness of current controls, and the environmental and financial cost of trying to control nature. Not one single non-native or invasive plant has been eradicated from “continental” British Columbia despite trying for the past 100 years. If someone knows different please let me know. Invasive plants are considered “biological pollutants” and are regularly cited as causing ecological destruction.While it is true that foreign plants can change our environment, there is a distinct lack of research-based decision making on the issue. As an example, invasive Tamarix species were thought to be “water hogs” causing ecological disaster. But further research has shown that Tamarix uses similar amounts of water to native plants and Tamarix supports many endangered bird species within its ecosystem. The scope of exotic plant colonization within B.C. is widespread with many regions showing multiple foreign plant colonizations. The magnitude of the problem can be seen by purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria), a fast-growing herbaceous perennial that colonizes wetlands, ponds and roadsides. Loosestrife has naturalized in 10 Canadian provinces and

Todd Major

Dig Deep

39 U.S. states.The claims of ecological disaster from loosestrife have been disproved with research showing that native bees and beneficial insects feed heavily on the flowers thereby providing a food source to replace the native plants that were destroyed by mining, farming and urbanization. Ongoing control of non-native plants has cost trillions worldwide and millions of dollars in Canada while pouring millions of litres of poisonous pesticides onto our lands. Often in marginal, aquatic or foreshore environments where pesticide use is the most damaging and generally not permitted under provincial law. As an example, Japanese knotweed, which grows in those areas, is pesticidecontrolled by stem injection of high dose, almost pure strength Roundup (threefive millilitres per stem averaging 40-50 stems per colony).Versus the traditional foliar spray application of lower strength, dilute Roundup. Does anyone care about that? Or do the means justify the murky end? Further examples of extensive colonization include orange hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum) and the oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare); both are now found widely in almost half of B.C. Scotch broom is now found throughout the south coast, Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii. Knotweed (Fallopia japonica) is found throughout B.C.’s south

Himalayan blackberry (Rubus armeniacus) is found on Vancouver Island, the south coast, and parts of the southern interior all the way to the Kootenays. The need for change in managing alien species invasions is discussed by Mark A. Davis, a biology professor from Macalester College in Minnesota. His book, FiftyYears of Invasion Ecology:The Legacy of Charles Elton, by Blackwell Publishing Ltd., discusses some interesting ideas and dispels many myths. Davis explains, “A review of extinction threats in Canada found introduced species to be the least important of the six categories analyzed (habitat loss, overexploitation, pollution, native species interactions, introduced species and natural causes (Venter et al. 2006).” Davis

not only discusses the ecological issues and the change needed to meet the challenge, he also gets right to the point with this comment: “Today’s management approaches must recognize that the natural systems of the past are changing forever thanks to drivers such as climate change, nitrogen eutrophication, increased urbanization and other land-use changes. It is time for scientists, land managers and policy-makers to ditch this preoccupation with the ‘native versus alien dichotomy’ and embrace more dynamic and pragmatic approaches to the conservation and management of species, approaches better suited to our fast-changing planet.” I applaud everyone trying to prevent alien plants from colonizing our shores.

Houses celebrate life ■ Beach Houses Andrew Geller, by Alastair Gordon, Princeton Architectural Press, 128 pages, $43.

In an era of unbridled optimism Andrew Geller created beach houses for his clients that brought together the divergent elements of the landscape, their personalities and Geller’s unique vision. As a designer at Raymond Loewy, Geller worked on a wide range of projects from designing shopping centres to logos. In 1955 he designed a beach house for Barbara Reese, who he worked with at Loewy, and it was to become the starting point of a separate career. The A-frame structure he created for Reese received a great deal of media attention and resulted in new commissions for other beach houses. Author Alastair Gordon examines many of Geller’s constructions and shares fascinating details about their creation. Geller worked closely with his clients and tried to interpret their lifestyle into the design. “Each of Geller’s houses was like a portrait, a custom-made tribute to its owner’s personalities.” While these beach houses embraced a kind of everyman modernism, they

were built economically and for summer use, making them within reach of middle class incomes. Geller was not interested in just making a statement with the building’s shape.There were many factors at work, as they were located on the site with a focus on the view, prevailing winds, sun angles, high tides and more. Photographs of the construction stages and finished houses are featured throughout the book, as well as many of Geller’s sketches and plans for them. This visionary architect was able to combine the artist’s sensitivities to the builder’s realities and made beach houses that celebrated life. ••• ■ Heart & Soil, by Des Kennedy, Harbour Publishing, 240 pages, $24.95. You won’t learn how to fix your aphid problem or what is the fastest growing hedge to create a privacy screen in Des Kennedy’s latest book.What you will discover is a collection of

stories that will entertain and inspire you towards one of man’s oldest activities. This icon of Canadian gardening shares his thoughts on a wide range of related topics, from the simple joy of turning over a vegetable bed and the resulting connection to the soil to the change in his opinion on mushrooms. At one time he believed that “having mushrooms in the garden was like having cockroaches in the house, revealing one’s lack of cleanliness and moral rectitude.” Like a longtime neighbour leaning over the fence, Kennedy draws you easily into his stories with his conversational tone and his entertaining outlook.

Federal approach needed From page 18 many invasives it is too late. Applying enough pesticide every year to fill BC Place stadium more than once, while still not controlling invasive plants is inflicting too much damage on our environment.What is really needed is a cohesive, science-based, multijurisdictional law from the federal government that implements improved border inspections, insurance and maybe bonding, fines or management taxes on importers. Such a law combined with a new allencompassing provincial law restricting soil and plant movement and the sale of invasive plants would go a long way in helping control invasive plants now and in the future.

Favorite Holiday? Is Halloween a holiday? If it is....it’s my favorite because I get to blow things up! A day without technology? I would bask in the silence & splendor. I would talk to the trees & animals, I would lay down in green pastures watching the clouds float by. I would smell the flowers, feel the smooth coolness of rock, let crystal waters run over my skin. I would rest my mind & body and return to source. Also, I would probably lose a little money considering the extensive use of technology in the automotive industry.

“Aw, is that your family? That’s adorable,” said the sweet woman handing me the keys to a new Ford Focus. If only she knew. The good people at Ford were letting us take the car to Cultus Lake for the day and hooking us up with road trip supplies and entertainment options so that we could learn and share just how much fun can be had in this little corner of the province. A new survey commissioned by Ford revealed that Vancouverites were considering high gas

prices when planning their road trips this year and looking to stay close to home. We were tasked with scoping out Cultus Lake and reporting back. My wife and two kids, both under four, waited in our old hatchback as I was shown the ins and outs of the Focus, a very sharp-looking car that was stocked with a heck of a lot of high-tech stuff for a car priced at less than $30,000. The woman waved to my family and then departed, leaving us in charge of the Focus. That’s when my wife popped out of our old car and handed me a paper cup filled with

We hadn’t even made it over the Port Mann Bridge, however, when the first alarm bell went off. “Daddy, I need to pee!” Evasive manoeuvres! Find a safe port! Go, go, go! We got off the highway and zipped through a maze of roads looking for somewhere, anywhere to get some relief. The Focus was pretty quick, but nothing in the world is faster than a young child’s bladder going from zero to 100. Phew, we made it. Children happy, car still

a warm liquid. “He couldn’t wait,” she said. And thus was created what would be the theme of this road trip: “Don’t get any pee on the new car!” The next day we set out after first loading up on road trip essentials like terrible magazines, beef jerky and breakfast smoothies. Kids loooove smoothies, but in retrospect, this was maybe not the best idea at the start of a day full of driving. The cabin of the Focus was a little snug, the two car seats taking up much of the rear space and pushing the front seats fairly close to the dash. But oh, the trunk. My wife couldn’t stop raving about how much stuff fit in the trunk. She made me take a picture. Once we hit the highway I enjoyed punching the engine into action. “Daddy, you’re driving fast.” “Yes I am, son.Yes I am.” And my wife settled in for a nice long game of “push every button.” Our old car comes from a simpler time, and so there was a real thrill in testing out a new

A complete flush and fill of the coolant system is necessary for ridding the system of dirt and rust collected from the engine, radiator, and various hoses. Wheel alignments can realign your wheels to your manufacturer’s specifications. Wheel alignments improve straight-line tracking and reduce tire wear. If you feel unusual pulling to one side, it is time for a wheel alignment. Avoid stop-and-go driving. This wastes fuel and adds unnecessary wear and premature age to crucial components.

Following the recommended maintenance intervals outlined in your owner’s manual and checking for potential problems before they happen are essential to overall vehicle maintenance. The following general maintenance tips are from OK Tire North Vancouver (oktirenorthvancouver.ca). Change the oil within the suggested service intervals. Checking and changing your oil and oil filter will help your engine and vehicle run smoothly. Using the manufacturer’s recommended oil for your vehicle can improve gas mileage by one-two per cent. Moving components require regular lubrication and should be checked as often as the oil is changed. Driveline components, like CV and u-joints, are flexible components that if not properly lubricated can break down and cause other major components to go with them. Transmission and differential fluid are other important fluids to check during service intervals. Unusual noises, sluggish shifting, or abrupt gear changes are all signs that your transmission service interval is quickly approaching or has passed.

Luckily the navigation system lady kept her cool and politely guided us back onto her carefully planned course. After a lovely drive past some of my sons’ favourite things — cows, tractors, excavators, dinosaurs playing golf — we arrived at Cultus Lake and scored some delicious lunch at J. Beethoven’s Pizza, a local favourite that does pizza the way I like it: thick, meaty and drowning in cheese. No fru-fru flatbread here, this is the good stuff. The only problem was there was no change table for the littlest one. This put the Focus back in the line of fire as my wife used the ample trunk as a makeshift

change table. Anyone with a little baby boy knows that they are equipped with tremendous fire hoses that always seem to go off the second that they are exposed to open air. This time, however, the little fireman kept his hose in check. Phew again. And my wife reports that the big, flat trunk of a Ford Focus is just the right height for diaper changing, in case you were wondering about such things. Next we hit the beach, gobbling down our snacks while the kids toddled along the dock. It was a chilly, cloudy day, so sadly there was no swimming. There certainly were lots of geese though. The kids loved watching the geese almost as much as they loved giving us heart attacks by nearly stepping in big piles of goose poo over and over

The cabins and camping looked like bliss and the giant Cultus Lake Water Park is, well, giant. One day I will tame you, water park. As for the Focus, I used to own a Ford Ranger back in the 1990s, so this was like going for a spin in my old truck’s much faster and fancier brother. From the future.

Tips for road readiness With warmer, drier weather just around the corner, motorcyclists are ready to hit the open road. Before you hit the highway, however, it’s important to perform a maintenance inspection to ensure your bike is as road-ready as you are, especially if it’s been sitting idle during the winter months. Inactivity can degrade your bike’s safety, control and performance. Ensuring it’s in top working order can help you avoid a mid-ride breakdown or even a potential crash. BCAA (bcaa.com) offers the following maintenance checklist to get your motorcycle road ready this summer. Tires and wheels: Since these are where your bike and the road meet, they’re probably the most important things to look over. A problem can affect handling sometimes severely. Check the air pressure of your tires and inflate to the ideal pressure. Inspect tires for wear-and-tear on the treads, cracks, bulges or embedded objects; inspect wheels for roundness, cracks and dents, and bent, broken, or missing spokes. Replace if necessary Controls: Check review levers and pedals, ensuring they’re lubricated, adjusted and fitted properly. They should

DNF'F 24H)'F2K

not be broken, bent or cracked. Inspect cables ensuring they’re not frayed, kinked or folded into sharp angles. Test to ensure the bike’s cables at no time interfere with your ability to steer. Check hoses for cuts, cracks, leaks, bulges, chafing or deterioration. Like cables, hoses should not interfere with your steering or suspension, and should not be folded into sharp angles. Test that the throttle moves freely, does not stick and snaps closed when released. Lights: Check the battery to ensure the terminals are clean and tight and that it’s properly charged and secured. Check the vent tube to confirm it is not kinked or plugged, and is routed properly. Inspect the lenses and reflectors on the bike ensuring they’re not cracked or broken,

are securely mounted and don’t have excessive condensation trapped within. Inspect headlight for cracks. Confirm it points at the right height and direction. Test the operation of the high beam and low beam options. Test the tail light and brake lights to make sure they work when they should, and they are not cracked. Clean and ensure they are properly secured. Test both of the turn signals (left and right). Oil and fluids: Check the levels and quality of the engine oil, hypoid gear oil, shaft drive, hydraulic fluid, coolant and fuel. Replace or top-up fluids that need it. Check for leaks of these same fluids. Chassis: Review the condition of the frame, looking for lifting paint, cracks or dents, and ensure the front forks and rear shocks are properly adjusted. Check the tension of the belt or chain. Lubricate the chain if needed, and inspect the teeth of the sprockets confirming they are not hooked and are properly mounted. Replace broken or missing fasteners and tighten if loosened. Stands: Make sure the centre and side stands are not cracked or bent and that they spring into place and have the required tension to hold the bike in position.

Taking the time to do a spring cleaning helps prepare vehicles for the summer months ahead and keeps your car looking great and wellmaintained all season. Canadian Tire offers the following recommendations for a thorough car cleaning: Rinse: Give your car a thorough fresh-water rinse with a pressure washer at the right setting to blast away winter residue and discover how well the surface survived. Don’t forget the following areas: wheel wells, undercarriage, inside fenders, behind metal bumpers and behind moldings. Prep: Scratches and dents become much more visible once your car is rinsed. It’s important to fix these and remove rust. Wash and dry: Wash and dry your vehicle on a regular basis to remove harmful contaminants, such as salt and acid rain, that can damage the car’s exterior. Regular

DNF'F )N%''0+)'F2K

cleanings help to extend the life of your car. Polish and wax: Waxing your vehicle creates a protective shield for the paint finish and improves your car’s appearance by defending against harmful elements like acid rain, UV rays, bugs, tar and tree sap. Tires and wheels: Care for your tires and wheels by removing tough grime and salt buildup, which can damage rims. Tire dressings help to improve the look of old tires while also providing a protective coating against UV damage and deterioration from dirt.

Interior: Your car interior is a high-traffic area, prone to dirt, smears, crumbs, coffee spills and smells. It’s important to keep this area clean and smelling fresh just as you would the inside of your home. Pay special attention to the floors, seats, glass and surfaces/dash. Make sure to clean hard-to-see areas, which can often be overlooked including the area behind the rear-view mirror, passenger mirrors, the glove box interior, seat handles and vents.

PARENTING

Talking to your kids about the strike Why is my teacher on strike? What does that mean? Kids are going to be asking the questions and it’s good to be prepared. How can you explain the complexities of the strike to your school-aged children? Tina O’Connor, a speaker, author and publisher on the topic of communication between parents and children has some great ideas on how to handle this conversation. Her first comment is to be honest about the facts. She says, “You may need to do a little research first before discussing this issue with your kids so that you know why this is happening.Try to keep your own opinion about it to yourself, or at least try to remain positive about the facts you are presenting to them (keep any negativity tucked away). For example, the teachers want to focus more attention on each student, so they want the class sizes to be smaller, and they would like to have some additional help in the class for those students who require more attention.” How you’re going to talk to the kids depends on their age.What is a union and what is the point of a strike? For your young

Kathy Lynn

Parenting Today elementary school child you can simply explain that the teachers are in a group and they work together to make sure that the hours they work, the number of kids in a classroom and their vacation time is fair. On the other hand, the government says it does not have extra money in its budget to pay for all those things. With older kids you can talk more about unions. Of course, if you belong to a union you can include your work situation.You may want to include information about the employee benefits that we now take for granted are a result of previous union actions. Kids understand the concept of conflict.They know that sometimes they argue with their friends about what games to play or what the rules should

be.You can explain that it’s the same with this situation.There are two sides, the teachers and the government, and they are having trouble agreeing on the rules. Union members go on strike when they can’t convince the employer to negotiate to make the rules fair for all the workers. So the strike is the teachers’ way of pressuring the government to work with them to talk about salaries and class size. It’s essential to have a plan in place in case there is

a work stoppage at school. Whether it’s a one-day strike or an ongoing one, you are going to need to develop a child-care plan.Work this out privately. In other words, don’t let the kids get involved in your angst about finding alternate care.They may feel guilty that they are the cause of your concern or they may become angry with their teachers. If you have questions about final exams, how to register your kindergarten child or how you can find out what’s happening, do the research so you can let

your kids know what to expect. If it’s all up in the air, be honest with the kids but also be positive and let them know it’s going to be all right and that you will get the information when it’s available. As long as they know that you are handling things, they will be OK. This is not going to last forever. So be very careful not to speak negatively about their teachers.They will be going back to school and these same teachers. You don’t want them to be hostile and angry in the classroom.

Teachers’ strikes are difficult for the teachers and the government as well as students and parents. It’s important that everyone work to make the situation as painless as possible. You can only influence how it will impact you and your children. A plan and a positive attitude will go a long way toward making it acceptable.

Balancing tradition and change

The Dish

ROMANCING THE STOVE Angela Shellard presents recipes for pasta salad. page 38

For 33 years, nestled between other businesses that have come and gone on the lower blocks of Lonsdale Avenue, Jagerhof Restaurant has tirelessly serviced the North Shore dining community. The restaurant’s longevity is staggering; in those three-and-a-third decades, the culinary world has undergone radical, paradigmatic shifts, welcoming and dismissing meta-trends including nouvelle and haute cuisine, California minimalism, fusion fare, the small plate revolution and microgastronomy. All the while, Jagerhof has maintained a disciplined focus on the traditional foods of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and South Tyrol, a hearty and often rustic cuisine that typically features dishes with relatively few ingredients, each prepared simply and with a view to showcasing their individual qualities. If this approach to cooking sounds oddly familiar, that’s because it is the meta-trend of today, a movement that is hyper-focused on small, thoughtful selections of top quality ingredients that are not overwhelmed by heavy-handed technique. It requires tremendous

At Jagerhof, the approach is alive and well as I discovered one recent evening when I visited the storied room with my frequent dining partner Gil. For an early weeknight, the restaurant was surprisingly bustling with activity and we were lucky to get a table when we arrived at nearly 8 p.m. The service immediately proved to be attentive as three members of staff independently approached us to ensure we had been looked after as we awaited our seats. In April of this year, Jagerhof underwent a change in ownership, its

former proprietors retiring after a commendable run and selling the place to Chris and Sandy Gehry, hands-on owners who run the room in an affable, engaging manner consistent with the restaurant’s approachable menu. When the Gehrys took the helm, they brought with them chef Felix Roesner, formerly of Bravo Cucina up the road, another stalwart bastion of dining on the North Shore. As Chris explained to Gil and I following a truly exceptional meal, the new Jagerhof leadership team is seeking to strike a balance between the preservation of the respected traditions that have kept the place

afloat for so long and the subtle modernization and innovation that is going to appeal to new generations of diners and keep Jagerhof relevant for years to come. Gil and I decided to try a wide cross section of the menu by sharing everything we ordered. Our meal began with an aperitif of German aquavit (a potent, grainbased distillate that appears far too rarely on contemporary menus, in my opinion) and escargots in garlic butter with toast points. The escargots were exactly as I like them: plump and slightly chewy, dredged in garlic butter and topped with a fine persillade ideal for mopping up with toast.

We got down to serious business with a platter of house specialties, which included traditional bratwurst, a golden filet of Weiner Schnitzel with mushroom sauce, smoked pork chop, roasted potatoes, sautéed purple cabbage and sauerkraut. At just $21.95 this platter is a good value and something I’d be inclined to come back for. The bratwurst was exceptional. Light, subtly spiced and not overly salty, the sausage paired brilliantly with the purple cabbage, which had warm and comforting notes of a brown spice I couldn’t quite put my finger on; perhaps it was See Pork chop page 38

Pasta salads popular, easy to make ingredients until the taste suits you. Cucumber Dill Pasta Salad This goes well with barbecued salmon. 1 lb small shell pasta or other favourite small shape (rotini, farfalle, etc.) 4 green onions, chopped ½ cup chopped celery ½ cup sliced radishes 2 cups seeded and diced English cucumber (unpeeled) Dressing: 1 cup mayonnaise (regular or low-fat, not fat-free) 1 cup sour cream (regular or low-fat, not fat-free) 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill 1 small garlic clove, minced (optional) Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Angela Shellard

Romancing the Stove If you’re asked for a contribution to a potluck barbecue or picnic, pasta salad is a great choice. It’s quick and inexpensive to make, it’s popular, and there are lots of variations. The following three recipes are a bit of a departure from the standard elbow macaroni with mayo and chopped celery. A couple of key points to remember: if your salad contains mayonnaise and you’re taking it to a picnic, be sure to keep it in a cooler with lots of cold packs. Also remember that pasta will continue to absorb the dressing while it’s refrigerated, so be generous with the dressing when you make the salad, and it’s a good idea to have a little extra available to add before serving if the salad seems a bit dry. I always make more dressing than the recipe calls for because the pasta always soaks up far more than I think it will. Please note that the dressing recipes should be tweaked to your personal taste. Feel free to add more or less of any of the

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain, rinse with cold water and drain again. In a large bowl, combine the pasta with the green onions, celery, radishes and cucumber. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients; add desired amount of dressing to the salad and toss to combine. Refrigerate until serving. Makes eight servings. Note: If not serving within two hours, don’t add the cucumber to the salad as it may weep and make the salad watery. Add cucumber about an hour before serving.

Shanghai Pasta Salad 1 lb farfalle (bow tie) pasta, cooked, rinsed with cold water and drained ½ each red and yellow bell pepper, seeded and cut into one-inch pieces 1 cup canned baby corn pieces 10 snow peas, strings removed, briefly blanched in boiling water then cut in half 2 green onions, finely chopped 1 tsp black sesame seeds 1 ⁄3 cup chopped salted cashews or peanuts Dressing: 1 ⁄3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce 2 tsp grated fresh ginger root 1½ tsp brown sugar 1 Tbsp Asian sesame oil 3 Tbsp rice wine vinegar 1 tsp sweet Thai chili sauce 2 Tbsp canola oil Combine all salad ingredients except sesame seeds and nuts in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine dressing ingredients and whisk until well combined; pour desired amount over salad and toss to combine. Sprinkle sesame seeds and nuts over top just before serving. Best served at room temperature. Makes eight servings.

clove. The schnitzel was crispy and satisfying, though I must admit that I found the mushroom sauce (thankfully served on the side) superfluous and maybe even a touch incongruous with the other items on the platter. The star of the dish, however, was the pork chop, a briny, moist and reservedly smoky, ham-like number custom crafted to pair with the generously portioned sauerkraut. To accompany our

meal, we sipped Gruner Veltliner, a brilliant, crisply acidic Austrian white wine that should really be more mainstream due its foodfriendly profile. Last up in the savoury category was an order of Weiner Schnitzel Cordon Blue, a thin filet of veal wrapped in ham and Swiss cheese, dredged in light batter, and fried until crispy. The salty ham and the rich cheese really brought the dish to life and made me reconsider, if just for a moment, my general

aversion to and avoidance of veal. Beautifully tender, homemade Spaetzle, a traditional German handshredded, egg-based pasta, accompanied the schnitzel in place of potatoes. We wrapped up the meal with two delicious desserts: Palatshinken, thin, golden crepes filled with wild berry coulis and topped with whipped cream, and Viennese style apple strudel with crème Anglaise. Both dishes revealed an exceptional talent for pastry in the kitchen and a laudable

restraint in the use of sugar. Our meal, comprised of aperitifs, an appetizer, two mains, two desserts, and a bottle of wine was $117.

ANDY PREST aprest@nsnews.com

Wayne C. Baker, the new head coach of the North Shore Indians senior B lacrosse team, wants players on his team who are in peak physical fitness, able to outrun and outgun their opponents for an entire game. Baker knows, however, that fitness doesn’t come easy. But he also knows from his own experience that it works.The North Vancouver native, a member of the Squamish Nation, has been a player or player-coach on four teams that went on to win the President’s Cup, the trophy awarded to the Canadian Lacrosse Association’s senior B

national champion. His first national title came as a player with the Indians in 1985. Baker credits the coach of that team with whipping the squad into shape by making them run a circuit before practices that included the steep hill on North Vancouver’s 19th Street East. “We called it puke hill. We’d run up that thing at least three or four times,” said Baker. “Then we used to run into the arena and we’d have to do 10 stairs around the whole arena. Up and down, up and down, up and down.Then we’d go put our gear on and start playing. But that team was a good team because everybody was running.” The Indians won it all

again with Baker as a playercoach in 1993. In 1999 Baker won his third cup as a member of the Burnaby Bandits. He’d had a falling out with the Indians, but Baker got the last laugh as the Bandits ended up playing the Indians in the national championship game. “We played them in the national final and won.They were pissed,” he said with a laugh. He reunited with the Indians in 2001 and again acted as a player-coach as the team went on to win their third, and his fourth, national title. Baker hasn’t been involved with the team in recent years but before this See Indians page 40

Indians a sensation in 1930s From page 39

season he was asked to come back and coach and said yes on the condition that he could run the team the way he sees fit.That means he wants them fit, and he wants them all to play defence. Baker learned a strong, inclusive defensive system — different from common lacrosse systems that have players specialize in just offence or defence — when he played with the senior A Vancouver Burrards in the early 1980s. “We used the same defence every cup we won,” he said. “Every time I got in there I always said, ‘This is what we’re learning first before anything else, this defence.’ Of course, we know, defence wins championships.” The system worked well right off the bat this season as the Indians, playing their home games on Friday nights at West Vancouver Ice Arena, got off to a 4-1 start

to jump to first place in the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association.The wheels have fallen off since then, however, as the Indians lost their last seven games to drop into sixth place heading into last night’s game in Langley against the Warriors. “It started out really great, and then we hit a road bump,” said Baker. “I find that it’s a different game than when I used to play. The commitment from the players is not like when I was playing.We showed up for practice.” The Indians — a team made up mostly of players from the North Shore and Vancouver — will be back at home Friday for a matchup against Port Moody starting at 8 p.m. at West Vancouver Arena. “I’m just trying to get this team together — trying to find players that want to play is the hard thing,” said Baker. “We’ve got quite a young team.That’s a good

thing.They’ll be ready to go next year. And if we keep them around for three years then we’ll be ready for hosting the President’s Cup and challenging for another cup.” Baker has a long and illustrious history with the club but the Indians go back much further than their coach.The team was a phenomenon in the 1930s, drawing attention to the sport around the province.They played in the Mann Cup final in 1936 — equivalent to the senior A national championship — and lost 3-1 to the Orilla Terriers. Despite the loss, the team gained widespread fame and in 1999 was inducted into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame. Many of today’s players are direct descendants of those stars of a different generation. “They’re all cousins. Bakers, Josephs,” said Baker. “There’s a sense of pride. That’s why we don’t like losing.”
