North Shore slated to receive significant transit improvements as part of TransLink’s Moving Forward proposal MARIA SPITALE-LEISK S TA F F R E P O RT E R
ransit ridership in West Vancouver has increased 12 per cent since residents were teased with a fleeting increase in transit service during the 2010 Winter Olympics. By showing how easy and convenient it was to get around West Vancouver, people became inspired to take transit, said Gareth Rowlands, manager of West Vancouver’s Blue Bus transit system, which is operated by TransLink. West Van has maintained that increase in ridership but without an increase in service, according to a first quarter TransLink customer service performance report conducted by market research firm Synovate. The 250 Horseshoe Bay and 257 Horseshoe Bay Express routes are regularly overcrowded, said Rowlands. Budget constraints within TransLink mean Rowlands cannot provide any additional buses for overloads on long weekends and Fridays when the transit system hits overcapacity. “When the 257 is full they then fill up the 250 bus which goes along Marine Drive and then we leave customers behind along on Marine Drive,” he said. Overall, West Vancouver transit rated first in nine of the 11 quality measures in the customer service survey. The 254 British Properties route was a main contributor to the overall low score for frequency of bus service; on Sundays, it only runs every two hours. Rowlands’ wish list, subject to TransLink approval, is to have hourly service on Sundays in the British Properties and Caufeild starting in March 2012, as well as service to Horseshoe Bay every 15 minutes during the mid-day. Transit service was also a hot topic at North Van’s Lonsdale Quay on Sept. 7, where a dozen people turned up at an information gathering session for part of TransLink’s 10-Year Transportation and Financial Plan. TransLink is currently developing a 2012 Supplemental Plan entitled “Moving Forward: Improving Metro Vancouver’s Transportation Network.” TransLink representatives including CEO
Ian Jarvis, board chair Nancy Olewiler and senior planning staff were on hand to field questions. TransLink spokesperson Ken Hardie said the plan was rolled out a year ago without a mechanism to fund it and there was expressed concern from North Shore residents about how it is going to be paid for. “Certainly no one wants to pay more for something, especially where taxes are concerned,” he said. The Mayors’ Council and the province have been working on a funding formula. Proposals include a two-cents-a-litre fuel tax, plus another source — all designed to produce about $70 million a year in additional revenue to TransLink. The North Shore is slated to receive significant transit improvements as part of TransLink’s Moving Forward proposal being presented to the Mayors’ Council today (Sept. 15). “What we are proposing to do in the plan would be to do a fairly good lift in service on SeaBus — 15 minute service all day and occasionally ten minutes for major events; plus to do a pretty good makeover of the Lonsdale Quay terminal,” revealed Hardie. A new, $25 million replacement vessel for the aging Burrard Otter SeaBus is also in the queue for TransLink’s capital projects, with a target arrival date in the spring of 2013. District Mayor Richard Walton, who heads the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation, said the Moving Forward supplement is a “fairly sound plan.” As the point person for negotiations with the Ministry of Transportation, Walton is concerned about the potential holdup in getting any new TransLink funding sources approved through the legislature. He says that with a possible change of government and minister during that time, the province may lose its enthusiasm. “We’re sitting here saying we would potentially need to backstop the next two years with an interim property tax that we really don’t support but in the short run because of delays in getting legislation in, we have no choice,” said Walton. “I know I’m certainly nervous. There is a significant political risk there.” Walton expects the Mayors’ Council to vote on the TransLink plan within three weeks. firstname.lastname@example.org

he municipal election machine kicked into high gear at city hall on Monday night with councillors engaging in a number of debates, sparked by a handful of motions tabled by Coun. Rod Clark. The most heated discussion centred on Clarkâ€™s proposal to restrict the Onni development â€” slated for the Safeway site at 13th Street and Lonsdale Avenue â€” to the density alloted for in the Official Community Plan. Initially, Onni approached council requesting more than double the density earmarked in the OCP, promising to build a new museum and other amenity contributions in return. Since, council has directed the company to scale down the large-scale development, cutting the plans from three towers to two and eliminating the space for the museum. Onni has yet to return to council chambers with revised drawings for the site, prompting a 6 - 1 rejection of Clarkâ€™s motion. â€œIn all fairness, we have to give these guys the chance to make their pitch. I hate these things, trying to short circuit
the process,â€? Coun. Bob Fearnley told The Outlook. â€œThis has everything to do with currying favour with voters.â€? Clark, how, warned of â€œletting the density genie out of the bottleâ€? if Onni were able to move ahead with a â€œprecedentsetting development.â€? â€œFor the last year, weâ€™ve been throwing out the OCP, allowing double density and so on,â€? said Clark. â€œMy motion was to reiterate a line in the sand, and the OCP is that line.â€? Clark also moved a motion to make North Vanâ€™s sister city relationships with Chiba, Japan and Huizhou, China a referendum question in the municipal election. Clark, a vocal opponent of the agreements for years, called it â€œa waste of taxpayerâ€™s money.â€? â€œThe publicâ€™s never been asked,â€? he said. â€œThe city has no business going off to foreign lands. Itâ€™s not civic business.â€? The motion was defeated 5-2. â€”Sean Kolenko

More than 100 recruits vie for a handful of firefighting positions on the North Shore TODD COYNE S TA F F R E P O RT E R
eople get into firefighting for different reasons. Over the past decade, those reasons have expanded and deepened with the raised profile brought upon the profession by the catastrophic events of Sept. 11, 2001. And so it was that on the tenth anniversary of that fateful day in September, all three North Shore municipalities held their joint fire recruitment test for the coming year. The significance of the date was lost on no one.
Stuart Goode is one of the 122 recruits who passed the written exam from a pool of 350 applicants and was subsequently invited out to the District of North Vancouver Fire Department’s back lot for the fitness test. On this afternoon, the 28-year-old arborist and volunteer firefighter is writhing under an antique parlor chair in an old shipping container. He’s wearing a 10-pound firefighter turnout suit complete with helmet and duct-tape blindfold. He’s sucking tanked oxygen with an audible hunger. “It’s a test of spatial awareness but also to see if the guys panic,” says Curtis Bremner, assistant fire chief for the District of North Vancouver, looking on from a window above the recruit. Goode is making his way through a mockup house fire, crawling the container’s plywood maze under the gaze of firefighting brass from all three municipalities: North Van District,

But that hasn’t tempered Stuart Goode’s confidence. “Oh, I’ll get on,” he says. “Eventually.” After completing the last task of his run — a dizzyingly high climb to the top of a fully-extended ladder-truck bucket — Goode tells The Outlook he was first bitten by the fire-bug about seven years ago when as a student pilot, he watched in horror as a fourseater propeller plane on the runway before him soared into the air, stalled and fell more than 100 feet back to the Tarmac, exploding on impact. “I could hear two people screaming as the plane engulfed itself in flames,” he recalls. “I turned off my engine, ran out with my instructor and a fire extinguisher, but as we were putting it out we could hear one of the screams slowly fade away. Then five minutes later, the last scream faded away. Then the paramedics showed up and we were shooed off the scene. I didn’t fly for a couple days after that.” Goode admits that flying for him has since taken a backseat to marine sports, but familiarity with either would certainly help his chances of

getting hired on the North Shore, where land, sea and sky are all part of the territory. “We have a very diverse geographical area,” Bremner, North Van’s assistant chief, says when asked about the special requirements of firefighters on the North Shore. “We have heavy industry, we have waterfront, we have chemical producers and then we have a lot of tech rescue for up in the wilderness.” The District and City of North Vancouver will each likely hire between two to four new firefighters by the end of November, according to Bremner. West Vancouver deputy fire chief Scott Jones said his department would hire at least one but possibly as many as three new recruits, once the year’s retirements had been announced. The average career of a North Shore firefighter is 30 years. firstname.lastname@example.org
Shoreline cleanup Next week volunteers will be combing the shoreline, from Indian Arm to Lions Bay MARIA SPITALE-LEISK CONTRIBUTOR

West Vancouver’s Kim Ansell, with the support of her employer, Hollyburn Family Services, is organizing cleanups at Ansell Place, Cytrus Wynd and Whytecliff Park. “Ansell Place is significant in that as an avid scuba diver, Ansell Place is one of my favourite local shore dives,” said Ansell, whose great-grandfather was the brother of Hal Ansell, the area’s original landowner. Nick Heath with the Sea Kayak Association of BC is leading a small group of kayakers in a cleanup of the shoreline near the Indian Arm Conservation Society. “We chose somewhere where it’s hard to get to,” explains Heath. The last couple of years the group has covered nearby Raccoon, Jug and Twin Islands — the latter being heavily used by campers. Abandoned gear, hundreds of bottles and broken glass were discovered by the kayaking cleanup crew. Even non-local groups want to protect the North Shore’s natural splendor. HT Law is a Burnaby-based Scout leader who is organizing a cleanup at Lynn Headwaters Regional Park with 50 kids. Shoreline litter threatens aquatic life and ecosystems; it can leach harmful chemicals into the water and accidently entangle aquatic animals such as otters, turtles and birds. Close to 57 per cent of refuse on the North Shore waterfront originates from shoreline and recreational activities, according to GCSC stats.

iscussing how pervasively the Internet has affected society is a quick way of either revealing one’s age or winning top prize in the who-can-craft-the-most-obvious-statement competition. But when sitting down for a cup of coffee with West Vancouver’s Jack Leigh, surrounded by folks using iPads and iPhones to check their latest emails, such an observation may not be so out of place. Leigh, you see, was one of the few people involved in bringing the now-omnipresent internet to Canada. In those days, of course, the work he was involved in was far from the graphic-laden service we’ve come to expect. The task, at the very beginning, was figuring out a way to connect the University of British Columbia’s mainframe to computer terminals at other ends of the campus. “At UBC, in about 1969, we [university computing staff] were working with the University of Michigan to build a network as it were,” says Leigh. “The original intent was to build an operating system to work with IBM’s equipment. The IBM hardware was the first to support terminals, but their operating system just wouldn’t do it.” Soon after, the Michigan Terminal System was born. With the newfound network, remote on-campus terminals could display the data the mainframe created. Those who worked locally on the system, says Leigh, were proud of what they accomplished but as the world of technology has a tendency to do, larger projects would soon take precedence. By the early 1980s, Leigh says he and his colleagues at the university knew “the value of data networks that had a longer reach” and set out to connect post-secondary institutions — all of which were using localized networks such as the MTS — to share research and support a wide range of projects. And the result? The still-inuse BC Net, an inter-institutional network used by Simon COFFEE Fraser University, the University WITH of Victoria and UBC, amongst Sean Kolenko others. Launched in 1987, the skolenko@northshore establishment of BC Net would outlook.com mark the arrival of the first regional network in the country, followed quickly by similar initiatives in Ontario and other provinces. Getting BC Net off the ground, however, didn’t come hiccup-free. Leigh says the project lost a year because those working on the network were forced to wait for the green light from Ottawa to use microwave frequencies to connect the mainland to Vancouver Island with wireless communications. “We needed government approval as we weren’t allowed to use the frequencies,” says Leigh. “There’s a line of sight from UBC to an island, which has a line of sight to Vancouver Island. That’s why we wanted to use a wireless connection. But we didn’t get approval and lost a year waiting.” As regional networks began popping up across the country, Leigh says musings on how to con-

nect each region in a cross-Canada network were gaining momentum. The first meeting to discuss a national Internet was held at UBC and focused on general principles and how to secure funding for such a big job. The National Research Council kicked in $2.5 million to pay for the work and after fielding a handful of proposals, the University of Toronto, in partnership with a Vancouver-based communications company, won the bid. To run the national network, those involved in the planning launched CA Net in 1990. CA NET was quickly absorbed into CANARIE, a newly formed government board established to fund the next cross-country network. Although placed under the CANARIE umbrella — CANARIE provided a host of services such as providing firms with funding for technology-related research — CA Net continued to operate the new cross-Canada network. Like BC Net, its users were primarily universities and research labs. In 1997, in step with the growing interest from telephone companies in the Internet, CAN Net was turned over to Bell. Leigh says he was the only dissenting voice on the CA Net board. “There was still more to do,” says Leigh, matter-offactly. But, in a year’s time he would retire. A 32-year tenure at UBC, the last 12 years spent as the university’s head of computing, had provided more ground-breaking moments than most see in their professional lives. Sure, he wanted to do more. And, like most jobs, there were mistakes and holdups along the way. But every now and then, there’s a moment in Leigh’s day where he realizes he played a role in the most all-encompassing technological entity society has ever seen. “I’m amazed at how fast it’s advanced. Being chosen as a torchbearer was a one-and-a-half year process where I only spoke to a person once. It was all electronic communication,” he says. “But when I talk to people at the university, they’re still dealing with the same problems we were 40 years ago. The software is still behind the hardware just like our issue with the IBM.” email@example.com twitter.com/seankolenko

Dignitaries and guests were also treated to a cake cutting ceremony and a display of memorabilia that traced the company’s impressive history. Also last week, the Luxury Supercar event weekend rolled into town and kicked things into high speed with a week long gear-up that included the launch of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, a high society lounge party in the park to celebrate MercedesBenz’s 125 year CAT’S anniversary and a weekend of luxury cars and stars for the public to come see EYE and dream about.

ordan Dumka’s photos showcase some of the more exotic and dangerous locales on earth. Young children draped in tattered clothes on a Tibetan street, machine gun-wielding soldiers standing guard at Angkor Wat or a deserted soccer pitch at a prison on the infamous Robben Island — all have been captured by Dumka’s lens. But as he prepares to talk about his work, and his professional plans for the future, Dumka’s in the middle of decidedly more domestic tasks. He’s just moved into a new home in North Vancouver’s Edgemont Village neighbourhood and sanding floors is one of many projects he’s got on the go. On the way to the backyard, where he’ll eventually sit to talk shop, he stops to grab designs of an extension he wants to build and discusses his plans for a soon-to-be stained kitchen. He’s a gypsy at heart and by blood — his grandmother was a Russian gypsy, he says, with a smile — and although his carefree attitude isn’t immediately on display amidst the boxes and responsibilities of domesticity, it’s Dumka’s capricious nature that’s propelled him throughout his career, and to the spoils that have followed.

**** “It all started on a wing and a
prayer,” says Dumka. “I went to a swap meet with my dad and asked him to buy me a camera. I wanted to take photos.” In the early days, Dumka learnt on the fly. Preferring the self-taught route, he says he read books and copied other photographs to learn techniques. In university, he dabbled in this and that, eventually graduating with an arts degree from Simon Fraser University. Dumka took a job with a pharmaceutical company after school. While on a business trip in Montreal, he and a friend decided to drive to Boston for a Bruins and Canadiens game. While passing through Albany, N.Y., the duo drove past a horrific accident involving a bus where, he says, “a bunch of people died.” He quickly stopped the car and grabbed his camera. He started snapping photos of the wreck and of the first responders who arrived soon after to clean up the mess. Being the only one on scene with photos, he decided to call the New York Times to tell them of what he had. The photos ended up running in the Times and were later picked up by the Associated Press. Within a couple months, Dumka went back to the West Coast, quit the rat race and took off traveling, camera in tow. He landed in Central America — Guatemala, Belize and Honduras — before heading to Southeast Asia. Based primarily in Bangkok, Dumka traveled extensively in the region, shooting in Laos, Indonesia and Cambodia. The work wasn’t for the faint of heart. For every jaw-dropping landscape, there were times of intense fear. For every inspirational sunset, there were thoughts

of whether he would ever make it home alive. “It was very exciting, sure. During a storm, I was stung by a scorpion in Laos. It was a big storm, the trees were down. It was like a mini-typhoon, there was no power,” says Dumka. “I was with a bunch of westerners, hanging out and playing guitar. And there’s this scorpion on my leg. We caught him in a jar and went to the hospital, riding on the back of this bike. The guy I’m with says something to the doctor and shows him the scorpion. I figured I would die. I told the others they could have my stuff and to tell my parents what happened. But, there was no poison.”

**** Since returning home and settling down, Dumka, now 46, has turned his attention to establishing a new creative agency, one where those involved can “call their own shots.” He approached video producer Dave Angelski with the idea, as well as DJ Mike Bleakley and designers Darryl and Keith Christensen of the upscale Ocean Drive Leather brand. The parties jumped at the opportunity to work together and The Artists Collective Group was born. Based in an open-concept, exposed brick-walled space in East Vancouver, the agency is hoping to become a one-stop-shop for clients looking for a range of multimedia work. Once established, Dumka says he also plans to launch an in-house magazine, further promoting his work and that of his cohorts. “The agency is the big thing these days,” says Dumka. “Everyone involved had done bigger work, but this is a way of organizing all the forces and realizing that we are all good and capable internationally.” Obtaining widespread recognition for the group, with the resumé Dumka’s cobbled together since his work landed in the world’s most famous newspaper, shouldn’t be too difficult. He recently shot some stills for the new Hedley music video and is hard at work planning a new video with Angelski for Victorianative Kuba Oms’s next single. It’s a bit of a juggling act, to be sure, but Dumka shrugs off the tightrope walk with ease. He loves his gig. And he knows that what he’s had the chance to do is the dream, and envy, of countless kids with their first cameras. “When I take a step back and think of the memories and take the time to see what I’ve done sometimes I say ‘wow that’s cool,’” he says.

My Ride: 1968 Shelby GT Name: Aldo T. Car: 1968 Shelby GT 350 Convertible Tell us about it: The first time I laid eyes on this car I knew I wanted to own it. The original owner was my mechanics teacher at Sutherland secondary. I had always wanted a rare Ford Mustang. It wasnâ€™t until long after high school that I was able to eventually purchase this same car from my old teacherâ€™s son in law.
COBRA CAR Fordâ€™s 1968 Shelby GT 350 Convertible, with its signature cobra emblems, is one of the most coveted muscle cars of its era.
How rare is it? It is a car that is highly sought after by collectors around the world; only a few of these were made and very few remain.
Rob Newell photo
Best place for cruising on Saturday night? I like to cruise along the lower road, Marine Drive, then merge onto the Sea to Sky Highway. On a nice sunny day I would drive all the way through Squamish and end up in Whistler. Favourite car movie? Gone in 60 Seconds. It is a great movie that showcases the wide assortment of high-end and rare cars. First car? I purchased my first car when I was 14 and the car was a blue two-door 1968 Ford Mustang. Dream ride? I find that all dream cars are unique, but I would like to own a Ferrari Enzo, which is extremely rare and the Bugatti Veyron. Both are extremely collectable and are built as high performance dream machines.

North Shore philanthropist donates millions to new education
Centre for Psychiatry and Education â€” The HOpe Centre â€” currently under construction at LGH. The donation accelerates plans put in motion by the province, Coastal Health, UBC and the LGH Foundation to train more Lower Mainland doctors at the North Vancouver hospital. Itâ€™s the hope of those partners that the new centre, to be named the Djavad Mowafaghian UBC Medical Education Centre in honour of its chief benefactor, will
attract top medical specialists and students to the North Shore. The new four-storey HOpe Centre will be able to train 100 medical students per month once construction is complete on the southeast corner of the Lions Gate campus by late 2013. In addition to the UBC education centre, the new building will also provide state-of-theart mental health and addictions services as well as a permanent home for BC Ambulance. firstname.lastname@example.org

Road to the Homeless World Cup Women’s street soccer coach Dominique Falls recounts her time at the 2011 tourney in Paris TODD COYNE S TA F F R E P O RT E R
REPRESENTIN’ - Dominique Falls (left) and Kailin See on the pitch in Paris last month. Submitted photo
epresenting your country at the Homeless World Cup is always going to be bittersweet. On the one hand is the excitement of a week abroad, with hotels and airfare paid, competing in an international soccer tournament while bringing the attention of media and mega corporate sponsors to bear on the plight of homeless people around the globe. Yet, for the teams and coaches, there remains the niggling fact that when it’s all over, the foreign streets of Paris are about as close to any home as most players have to return to. West Vancouver’s Dominique Falls coached the Canadian women’s street soccer team to a four wins and five losses finish at the 2011 Homeless World Cup in August. For Falls, coaching Canada’s first ever women’s national four-on-four street soccer team was a whirlwind ride. But it was an experience she hopes to recreate next year when the tournament comes to Mexico City, despite feeling a tinge of trepidation upon her recent return. The ride began nine months ago when Falls started coaching the Portland Hotel Society’s Phoenix FC in Vancouver — the only all-women team in Canada — while pursuing a doctorate degree in sport sociology from Simon Fraser University. Almost immediately she was tapped to head up the Canadian contingent to Paris where they’d meet 15 other women’s teams in the 64-nation contest.
Paired with Kailin See, her coaching counterpart from Toronto, Falls began recruiting for the eight-player team. “We had our eight and were all set,” Falls told The Outlook last week. But in street soccer there are few guarantees. One player bowed out to seek treatment for alcohol abuse and an eating disorder. Then the team’s youngest player, a 17-year-old from Calgary who had been bouncing between local shelters, disappeared days before the tournament and hasn’t been heard from since. “We haven’t been privy to any more information about her than that,” Falls said, speaking on behalf of the players and coaches. “So we just had to go with six.” The night before they left for Paris, Team Canada approached local members of the Cree Nation and asked if they could sing with them a Cree warrior song to prepare for their journey abroad. They happily obliged. “It was so super powerful that we all remembered it,” Falls said. So powerful, in fact, that before each game they would sing it again. “I think we were the most photographed team because of it,” said Falls. “Pretty much the entire venue would gather around us.” For the six-woman team, that rhythmic rallying cry would become more than just a source of solidarity amongst teammates. For them, it fostered solidarity too with the many missing First Nations women of Canada, whose ranks they worried their young friend and teammate had joined. There were many such moments of
joy tempered by reality throughout the tournament, Falls recalled. Just scoring one goal against soccer powerhouse Brazil was a tournament highlight for the team. “I’ve never heard someone scream so loud in my life as when we got that goal,” Falls said. Canada went on to lose that match 11-1, but their conduct on and off the field won them a nod as “fan favourites” of the tournament. Eligibility for the Homeless World Cup requires that players are currently homeless or have been so in the past year. Notably too, players must have not previously participated in a prior Homeless World Cup tournament. “The end of the tournament was bittersweet, obviously,” Falls said. “The tournament is a culmination of all their highs and lows in life and they realize they’re participating because they’ve had a lot of lows in their life. But it’s also a culmination of all the highs because they’ve got themselves healthy enough, well enough and focused enough to participate in something where they can go to Paris.” “We had a good cry about that on the last day during our last chant,” Falls added, her voice catching. It was after that chant, before their final match in the Women’s Plate Cup, that the team acknowledged they still had long battles ahead — that all the opponents they’d left behind on their Canadian “home” turf would still be waiting when they returned. Most of the women still come to practice, Falls said. email@example.com

Buchanan Bowl history Trivia you should know about this big annual gridiron game
t’s Game On! this Saturday when Carson Graham Eagles and Handsworth Royals meet at Confederation Park at 1:30 in their 25th annual clash for the Buchanan Bowl trophy. Len Corben Actually the history of gridiron battles between firstname.lastname@example.org the two rivals goes back even further than that, all the way back 45 games to 1969. So which game is the most memorable ever played? Who better to ask than Larry Donohoe who has been involved in every game since 1977, first as a player with Carson Graham, then as a fixture as an Eagles coach and ultimately as Buchanan Bowl organizer. He can’t remember if he also saw the 1975 and 1976 games when he was at Sutherland – then a junior high – as a Grades 9 and 10 student, chomping at the bit to get to play for the Eagles. But he does remember working on the stick crew for some Carson Graham games those years. His pick as the most memorable? The 2007 encounter. During the first half, Carson Graham led 12-0 on a field goal by Steve Shott, a safety touch conceded by Handsworth and a pass from Terrell Longley to Mike Nichol for a touchdown that Shott converted. Handsworth engineered a second quarter TD on a pass from Jon Roney to Anthony Allardyce and another on a quarterback sneak by Roney early in the fourth period, but both majors went unconverted and the score remained 12-12 as the final minutes ticked away. With two minutes left, a field goal try by Handsworth was blocked and Carson Graham marched 70 yards to the 10-yard line with just seconds remaining. That’s when a last-play-of- the-game field goal attempt by Shott from the 17 split the uprights – which were set back 10 yards in the end zone – for a 27-yarder and a 15-12 victory. It was the last game of the season for Carson Graham who were playing in the largeschool “AAA” league but missed the playoffs. Handsworth, however, won their next three games to capture the B.C. “AA” championship. Shott went on to play for the Okanagan Sun in the B.C. junior league where he’s connected on 45 field goals in the past two years, including ones from 50 and 51 yards and another for the Canadian junior record of 57 yards on Oct. 3, 2010, against Victoria. So who will win on Saturday? Take a look at the stats shown here and maybe figure it out based on recent results, location of the game, day of the week, time of the year and the records of the current head coaches. Or just go and watch the game. Me? I have my hunches but, since it’s never happened before, I’m predicting a tie game. (See, that’s me over there, sitting on the fence.) This is episode 433 from Len Corben’s treasure chest of stories – the great events and the quirky – that bring to life the North Shore’s rich sports history.

Coalition backs higher taxes on drivers for TransLink Region will pay in congestion if plan defeated: group JEFF NAGEL BLACK PRESS
etro Vancouver mayors are being urged to approve a two-cent gas tax increase and work with the province to slap other new fees on motorists to finance TransLink’s latest expansion plan. The Sustainable Transportation Coalition, a group of planners and transportation advocates, says TransLink’s Moving Forward supplement must be approved for the long-term health of the region. “People have to keep in mind the cost of not doing this,” said coalition spokesman Peter Ladner, a former Vancouver councillor. “Do they want to be waiting for three buses to pass them by before they can get a seat on a bus or have a system where they can count on getting to work on time?” The proposed revenue increases would raise an extra $700 million over 10 years, with $400 million to be TransLink’s share of building the Evergreen Line to Coquitlam and $300 million earmarked for upgrades elsewhere, including express bus service in Surrey and along Highway 1 to Langley and more frequent SeaBus sailings. The gas tax lift would raise $40 million annually while $30 million a year would come from other sources to be negotiated with the province. The coalition’s first preference for filling in that blank is that the province turn over part of the next increase of the carbon tax, slated for July 2012. Its second choice is a vehicle levy, which is already permitted under TransLink’s legislation and could vary according to a vehicle’s carbon footprint – or perhaps other factors, such as the usability of local transit service. A third option, the coalition says, is to create a system of road pricing that charges all motorists something when they make any significant trip in the region, not just when they cross a tolled bridge. Ladner said he believes road pricing will eventually be necessary and is smarter than a continuing policy of gradually rebuilding and then tolling bridges – which has been denounced as unfair. “Just as people use buses and pay every time they use the system, why shouldn’t people who drive cars pay every time they use the system?” he asked. “At that point, everybody should be paying a little bit.” The Sustainable Transportation Coalition includes the Pembina Institute, Better Environmentally Sound Transportation, South Fraser OnTrax and local chapters of Architecture Canada and the Planning Institute of B.C. Ladner conceded it’s a politically challenging time to pass new tax increases, with B.C. fresh from the referendum defeat of the HST and headed into bigger deficits and a cloudier economic outlook. Area mayors vote on TransLink’s supplemental plan in early October, just weeks before most of them hope to be re-elected in November civic elections. The financing strategy had the support of a slim majority of mayors when they tentatively approved it this summer with transportation minister Blair Lekstrom, who pledged the province’s support. But it’s contentious and several mayors say they can’t support the proposal because it would force TransLink to raise property taxes as the backup funding source if no deal is reached with Victoria on other mechanisms. Ladner said the coalition also opposes higher property taxes and agreed it’s a “big gamble” to trust that the provincial government will approve something else. “I’d be wary of that if I were a mayor too,” he said. “But I think an even bigger gamble is not to do it and gamble the social and environmental future of the region on a seized-up transportation system. “If we don’t provide more options for mobility, it will be more difficult to create business here, get employees to and from work and there will be more congestion. That comes at a huge cost.” TransLink is taking public input on the plan until Sept. 23. There are also public meetings on it Sept. 14 in Surrey and Sept. 15 in Coquitlam. See www.translink.ca for details.

BC HYDRO VEGETATION MAINTENANCE - PADMOUNTED TRANSFORMERS To assure continued safety and system reliability, BC Hydro is removing vegetation around all BC Hydro padmounted transformers to clearance standards. Vegetation management work in North Vancouver, West Vancouver and on Bowen Island will continue until March 31, 2012. BC Hydro requires the area around its electrical equipment to remain clear for the following reasons: ã ã ã
for the safety of our employees operating the equipment, to prevent overheating of the equipment, and to facilitate emergency repairs or replacement of the equipment.
The clearances around the transformers are: ã ã
2.5m from any and all doors 0.9m from all other sides
Prior to BC Hydro removing the vegetation, customers may prune or maintain vegetation around transformers on their property to these clearances. If not, vegetation removal will be completed by BC Hydro crews. For more information about safely planting near BC Hydro equipment and clearance standards, visit bchydro.com/safety
For 50 years, BC Hydro has been providing clean, reliable electricity to you. Today we are planning for the next 50 years by investing in new projects, upgrading existing facilities and working with you to conserve energy through Power Smart.
