North Shore Chef does Indian Cuisine his way These days, it seems you can’t throw a Pakora (vegetable fritter) without hitting an Indian restaurant in the Lower Mainland. Yes, the cuisine, known for its warm spices and peppery heat, is in abundance around these parts. But Lonsdale Avenue’s Indian Fusion, owned by Abby Sharma and his brother Shawn since 2008, is not your average Indian eatery. In this newly remodelled space adorned with clean, modern décor with Eastern touches, head chef Abby Sharma draws on the French ingredients and cooking techniques he honed while training at the Art Institute of Vancouver’s culinary school. That means traditional specialties like Chicken Korma (creamy cashew curry), Butter Chicken and Eggplant Bharta (eggplant cooked with peas) have flavour profiles unlike any other dish in the city.

“Everyone serves chicken curry, but I don’t follow the same recipes. I want to do Indian but I want to do it my way,” says the chef. Food and cooking have always been passions for Sharma, who hails from Punjab and grew up surrounded by the fragrant spices on display at the grocery store his parents owned. In 2011 Sharma and his brother opened a second restaurant in Kits, which closed soon after because it didn’t get the attention it needed due to a family crisis. But narrowing the focus to the North Shore location has been good for business. “At [Indian Fusion] our take-out menu is extremely popular and we are packed every night of the week … Patrons from the Kits restaurant still drive over the bridge to come here.” Running the kitchen keeps Sharma busy, but he does make time to take his wife— whom he credits for “making me want to achieve more” out for dinner two to three times a week. “Everything for me is about food … From small restaurants to high-end hotel dining rooms, I just love it all. I feel there’s still a lot to learn.” With one thriving restaurant under their chefs’ belts, Sharma and his brother are now dreaming of their next culinary enterprise. “In 2017 [It would be great] to open a loungey, hip place serving infused cocktails or Indian burgers, where you can casually go celebrate,” says the entrepreneur. And if the next project is anywhere as successful as Indian Fusion, celebrating is something Abby Sharma will be getting used to.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive order has left Canadian immigrants confused and worried

Welcome withdrawn

JANE SEYD AND JEREMY SHEPHERD jseyd@nsnews.com

Until last weekend, Iraqi Canadian Hamzah Elhassani was set to represent Capilano University at an international collegiate marketing competition in New Orleans in March.

But while Elhassani was in the midst of developing a marketing strategy and preparing to compete against U.S. schools four and five times the size of CapU, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order effectively instituting a travel ban on citizens from seven countries – Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. “My country is one of the seven that are banned,” Elhassani says. Elhassani, whom CapU marketing instructor Andrea Eby calls “my rock star sales presenter,” has permanent resident status in Canada. He was born in the Philippines but before moving to Jordan,

where he spent most of his formative years, he spent one year in Iraq and is still an Iraqi citizen. He’s planning to apply for a visa to enter the U.S. soon, but – considering that a former Prime Minister of Norway was reportedly detained and questioned at a Washington airport simply because he had visited Iran – Elhassani isn’t hopeful things will be worked out by mid-March. “It’s the idea of not being able to pursue my career or my future and losing such a great opportunity because you never know what’s going to happen in that conference,” he says. “It’ll be definitely a total loss if I don’t make the trip.” The American Marketing Association attracts the best students from the best schools, and offers tremendous networking opportunities, according to Eby. “We never, in Vancouver, would have Google presenting to us in a room of 50,” she says. “It’s a great opportunity to

network with people from all around the world,” Elhassani agrees. One of the reasons he wanted to go was: “to represent my country, Canada, and also my country Iraq.” The seven-nation blacklist has left the team facing uncertainty. “We’re in limbo here, like I guess a lot of the world is. It’s a real shame what’s happening,” says Eby. Elhassani says he just wants to pursue his passion without being lumped in with extremists. “We’re in 2017 … we should be accepting each other, we should be welcoming each other … rather than discriminating,” he says. North Shore MPs spent much of last weekend – the first weekend the new travel ban was in place – scrambling to come up with answers about what it means for constituents. “Last Saturday I had an open house,” says West Vancouver Sunshine Coast MP Pam Goldsmith-Jones. “The number one thing

everyone wanted to talk about was President Trump.” More specifically, local residents who are dual citizens of Iran and Canada wanted to know if they’d still be OK to travel to the U.S. on business and how the ban might impact extended family members. “This affects everyone in their daily lives,” GoldsmithJones says. North Vancouver MP Jonathan Wilkinson says his office has also heard from people who are concerned or confused about the new travel restrictions. He has advised constituents to meet with his constituency staff who will check directly with Canadian consular officials in Ottawa about their specific situation. “It’s a confusing time for a lot of people,” Wilkinson says. Both Wilkinson and Goldsmith-Jones say their understanding is that dual citizens entering the United States on a Canadian passport should not have a problem. Citizens of one of the seven flagged countries who have

permanent residency in Canada should also not have a problem travelling to the U.S. say Wilkinson and Goldsmith-Jones. But Zool Suleman, an immigration lawyer who has worked with many people in the North Shore Iranian community, says sometimes the situation at the border and at airports isn’t as clearcut as Canadian officials suggest. Dual citizens who were born in one of the seven countries subject to U.S. restrictions shouldn’t be surprised if they face extra questioning and security screening resulting in delays, he says. The status of permanent residents from those countries is also murky, he says, despite assurances from Canadian consular officials. “Just because you have Canadian permanent resident status doesn’t mean you have the right to enter America,” he says. It’s possible permanent residents will have to apply for a visa, he adds. Those with temporary status in Canada – who are

here under work or student visas – probably won’t be allowed into the U.S. while the restrictions are in place, he says. “Do not travel to the U.S. if you are from one of the seven countries and have temporary status.” Nick Hosseinzadeh, who came to Canada as a two year old and holds dual citizenship in Iran and Canada, is another North Shore resident concerned about the travel ban. Hosseinzadeh, who works as a constituency assistant to North Vancouver Seymour MLA Jane Thornthwaite, says he hasn’t been back to Iran since his family left the country and he doesn’t have an Iranian passport. But technically, he is still a citizen of Iran and his Canadian passport still lists Tehran, the capital of Iran, as his place of birth. That has created problems in the past, he says – even before the latest travel ban. “Whenever I travel to the United States and some countries in Europe, it’s definitely a

point of contention,” he says. In some cases, Hosseinzadeh says he hasn’t been able to check in to flights online. Other times he has been pulled aside and asked extra questions. “It just gets annoying,” he says. “I even have a Nexus card which makes the whole thing a bit unsettling.” “One of the questions I always get asked is ‘When was the last time you were in Iran?’” Hosseinzadeh says he expects that kind of scrutiny to ramp up in the wake of the executive order. Hosseinzadeh adds he wishes the Canadian government would change the rule requiring the place of birth to show up on Canadian passports. Some countries substitute a “place of origin” – meaning a person’s current residence, instead, he says. “I had no choice about where I was born but I chose to be a Canadian,” he says. “I identify as a Canadian. I don’t understand how where I was born matters to my travel documents. “I live in North Vancouver. That’s where I’m from.” Hosseinzadeh says he anticipates extra hassles for all Iranian dual citizens and permanent residents heading in to the U.S. under the Trump administration, especially those who have recently travelled to Iran. Hosseinzadeh says the jury’s still out on whether he’ll have problems getting in to the U.S. to attend a family member’s wedding in California this summer. “Obviously it’s my hope I’ll be able to travel there,” he says. But a part of him also wonders: “Do I really want to go to a country where people like me aren’t made to feel welcome?” Elizabeth Jones, executive director of the North Shore Multicultural Society, says she understands that sentiment. “There’s total confusion going on in terms of the Iranian community,” she says. Immigrants from Iran make up a sizable portion of relative newcomers to the North Shore. Even when people are told they should be OK to enter the U.S., many people

Additional Highway 1 Improvements Announced On January 27, the District joined representatives from the Province of BC and the Government of Canada in announcing joint funding for Highway 1 improvements around Lynn Creek. These upgrades, which will separate local from highway traffic and improve east-west flow to the Seymour area, are in addition to upgrades already planned for the Mountain highway, Lillooet Road (Fern Street) and Dollarton Highway interchanges.

CapU student Hamzah Elhassani prepares for a marketing contest with fellow students. PHOTO MIKE WAKEFIELD fear being targeted and harassed by border officials. Concerns aren’t just about people’s legal status but also “the vulnerability people are feeling,” she says. “All of a sudden people are being targeted.” That attitude has filtered down to some of the general population in disturbing ways – even in the Lower Mainland and on the North Shore, she says. “Because of the entire Trump situation, people feel free to express their racist views in public.” “The general population are feeling powerless,” she added. “It’s a mess right now.” That situation is doubly concerning for potential refugees. In addition to the 90-day travel ban on citizens from the seven named countries, Trump’s executive order also places a 120-day ban on the U.S. admitting refugees. That has led some critics to suggest Canada should revisit its Safe Third Country Agreement with the United States. Under the agreement, Canada is required to turn away refugees and asylumseekers coming from the U.S., under the understanding that the U.S. is a safe country for refugees that will process their applications fairly. Suleman is one of those who believes the agreement should be re-examined. “It appears that America is not complying with portions of the (United Nations) refugee convention,” he says. “Current actions seem to suggest America is targeting people on the basis of religion and ethnicity.” Suleman says to step

down from the agreement will have consequences for Canada. “If we opt out of the agreement we’ll see a significant rise in refugee claims at our land borders,” he says. The U.S. may also retaliate on the trade front, he says. Wilkinson says the government of Canada has made its own views on immigration and refugees clear. “I’m not sure it’s necessarily the role of the Canadian government to speak in terms of condemning or praising the American president who’s been elected by the American people, but certainly we have a different view as to what should happen in our own country,” he says. Wilkinson says until there is some evidence of additional problems being faced by asylum seekers within the U.S., there is no need for the Canadian government to take additional action. Goldsmith-Jones agrees, adding it’s important acknowledge that the economic and security interests of Canada and the U.S. are deeply intertwined and that involves the two countries maintaining a close relationship. Meanwhile, Suleman says immigrants in Canada aren’t the only people he’s been hearing from since Trump’s travel ban went into effect. Americans and immigrants currently living in America have also been making inquiries, he says. “There’s been a significant increase in people looking to get out or looking at alternatives in Canada,” he says. “Americans are unhappy with their government. They want to get out.”

Part of the plan is to construct two-lane, parallel bridges on each side of the existing orange Lynn Creek highway bridge. The north bridge is for westbound traffic connecting Mount Seymour Parkway to Mountain Highway, allowing traffic to flow from Seymour to Lynn Valley without merging onto Highway 1; and the south bridge will allow those coming down Mountain Highway from Lynn Valley and up from Brooksbank Avenue to enter the Highway in an east-bound direction. Anyone who regularly commutes through this area knows these upgrades are long overdue. District Council has been pressing for these changes for many years, with our primary objective being improved east-west traffic across Highway 1 and the local rivers. As part of its contribution, the District is close to completing the new, five-lane Keith Road Bridge, which expands road capacity over Lynn Creek by an additional three lanes. This infrastructure funding agreement between all three levels of government took many years of negotiation and District Council is proud to partner with its provincial and federal counterparts in improving access to, from, and across the North Shore. But let it also be clear that although this work will bring improvement by separating local east-west traffic from that headed towards the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge, it will not fix all of the North Shore’s traffic concerns nor address the issue of overall capacity on both the Ironworkers Memorial and Lions Gate bridges. As Metro Vancouver grows so will regional traffic making increased investment in transit infrastructure a critical priority for all levels of government. Anticipated completion for all phases of the Highway 1 Lower Lynn Improvements project is 2021.

Each of the North Shore’s three municipalities had their full armada of salt trucks out brining the roads starting Thursday night and all of the snowplows out before the snow began to fly around 6:30 a.m. But it wasn’t enough to keep the roads clear by the morning rush hour. Bus service suffered on virtually every North Shore route but hilly streets were the worst affected, according to TransLink. The Blue Bus cancelled its service to the Upper Levels, British Properties, Caulfeild and Lions Bay. Horseshoe Bay was still being served, albeit with reduced capacity. TransLink spokeswoman Anne Drennan said municipalities across the Lower Mainland were similarly overwhelmed when it came to keeping the roads clear for buses. “It’s been snowing so steadily and heavily, they’re slammed as well, of course. We are advising them of priority routes, which they are attempting to salt and sand, but of course it’s been snowing so heavily that it almost doesn’t help,” she said.

Winter blunderland

P

erhaps Aesop’s most famous fable is the tale of the ant and the grasshopper. The grasshopper suffers come winter because, unlike the ants, he failed to prepare. When it comes to snow removal, we’re the grasshopper. Friday’s commute, whether by transit or personal vehicle, was abominable thanks to an early morning dump of snow. It’s a common theme among the armchair commentariat that our municipalities were somehow caught off guard, that they were sluggish in responding or that their priorities were elsewhere. The fact is, in each of our winter storms, they’ve been hitting the streets with all they’ve got. They just haven’t got all that much. We have the snow clearing budgets of a typical Caribbean island because, most

years, our balmy climate doesn’t result in many visits from the white menace. Some might argue it makes no sense to spend a lot of money for snowplows that will stay in storage most years. Others may feel it is worth the investment to have the capacity there when we need it. But councils won’t go raising taxes and buying expensive gear unless they feel there’s a critical mass of people telling them to. The District of North Vancouver held its annual budget public input period last month and only three people came to speak. Not one of them was there to ask for more snowplows. The City of North Vancouver will be holding its on Monday and the District of West Vancouver later this month. Both will welcome your input online as well. The bottom line is, we get what we pay for.

Here’s how reporters can get along with Trump

I’m a peaceful man, I hate to see people mad at each other.

That’s why I got so upset when I saw that there was friction down south between the White House and the reporters tasked with covering the president and his team. In his first day of office President Donald Trump went to CIA headquarters where he spent an inordinate amount of time regaling the assembled agents with stories of how the media mistreated him by counting the number of people at his inauguration. It reminded me of that famous scene in The Man with the Golden Gun when James Bond is pulled off of the hunt for a rogue nuclear submarine so that the monarch could complain to him that someone spray-painted “the Queen sux” on Her Majesty’s

CONTACTUS

Laugh All You Want Andy Prest Royal Dumpster. That same day White House press secretary Sean Spicer got extra spicy, spending his first day on the job berating the assembled reporters before leaving without taking any questions. Trump counsellor Kellyanne Conway also weighed in on Day 1, saying that lies told by Spicer during his rant were actually “alternative facts”

and that, if the press continued down this traitorous path of reporting on things that the president says, the Trump administration would have to “rethink our relationship.” Rethink our relationship? Oh no! Are you talking about a … divorce? Is it splitsville between the White House and the media? I guess there’s precedent – Trump has already been divorced twice, and his White House has divorced itself from reality. But as a good Christian man who loves the Bible – “Very good book. Important words. The best words. I met with Kanye West – very famous, good friend of mine, bigly – and he said I’m bigger than Jesus. Treezus, I think he calls me. Maybe. People say. Just watch. I talk about the Bible, next week it’ll be a bestseller. Just watch. You know Moses. He’s done a terrific

job. He’s being recognized more and more…” – there’s no way Donald Trump would want to have another divorce on his record. So let’s fix this rift and get the press and White House back together again. It’s a new regime, so what journalists will need to do is ask new questions. The best questions. Trump questions. Here’s a handy guide reporters can consult whenever they have the chance to question the wisdom of the White House: BAD Question: American security is the main stated goal of this administration, and yet nearly every foreign policy move so far – shredding trade agreements, kneecapping the UN, offending world leaders – seemingly makes the world less safe. How does the overnight de-stabilization of 70 years’ worth of global

partnership-building make the United States safer? GOOD Question: When you greet other heads of state, what can be done to stop them from fainting when they realize just how much power you possess in your enormous hands? BAD Question: Quick follow-up on national security: Chinese military leaders are publicly musing they may have to fight the United States in a real war at some point in the next four years. How would war with China affect the safety of Americans? GOOD Question: What’s your favourite Chinese food? I know… Is it white rice? BAD Question: There are widespread reports that the ban on seven Muslim nations, none of which have had any nationals linked to a single terrorist incident in the U.S.,

Ambleside Farmers’ Market began in June of 2005.

Public needs a say in farmers’ market move

Dear Editor: If the West Vancouver council votes to follow a staff recommendation next Monday, Feb. 6, they will force the Ambleside Farmers’ Market to move locations before public engagement and outreach. The public engagement and outreach is only scheduled after the move. The market has been

held in Ambleside Village since 2005. During a recent survey on a rainy Sunday last October, an estimated 1,074 people entered the market at the 1500-block of Bellevue Avenue from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The move would place the market behind the West Vancouver Aquatic and Community Centre. I am encouraging

INFORMATION MEETING

Proposed Funding Strategy for expanding public parkland on the waterfront The District has developed a proposed funding strategy to acquire the last two houses on Argyle Avenue for public parkland and is looking for your input. The municipally owned lands at 2519 and 2539 Rosebery Avenue (also referred to as Brissenden Park), have been identified as a possible option to sell or long term lease to fund the purchase of 1444 and 1448 Argyle Avenue. Various funding options have been considered and the District believes this is the most efficient use of the community’s assets, and best serves the overall community interest. Come to an information meeting, find out more and provide your feedback.

West Van residents told not to ask for snow plows From page 7

vehicles, four of them involving minor injuries. North Vancouver RCMP reported two vehicle crashes, one involving a TransLink bus on Lonsdale. By North Shore News’ press time Friday afternoon, about seven to 10 centimetres of snow had fallen at most elevations on the North Shore with another 10 to 15 centimetres in Environment Canada’s weather forecast. When it comes to snow clearing, the municipalities prioritize major arterial roads, bus routes and emergency routes followed by school streets and collector routes. Local streets are the last on the list.

“If the snowfall is prolonged and intense, they will just focus on Priority 1,” said Stephanie Smiley, District of North Vancouver spokeswoman. That was the case in West Vancouver where the staff posted a message to the district’s website asking residents to stop calling about snow removal. “Our front desk was getting many calls from residents on side streets asking that their streets be cleared immediately,” said spokesman Jeff McDonald. “It was not realistic.” McDonald said they too had snow removal teams working at full capacity. “We started salting and brining (Thursday). It’s really

easy to say that we weren’t ready but I think we’ve done all we can to be ready. It’s just an extremely heavy snowstorm that’s overwhelming, in some instances, our resources.” Still, commuters coped. Lower Lonsdale resident Valerie Barrett was planning to take the bus to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal, but when she arrived at the bus stop she found a crowd of people losing hope a bus would ever come. She opted to drive, and give a lift to a young mother trying to get her son to childcare, as well as another woman. “I thought, what the hell, if I want to go, I better take my car,” she said.

West Vancouver

Public art as a reflection of community ROSALIND DUANE rduane@nsnews.com

In 1963, a West Vancouver couple travelled to Italy for their honeymoon.

There they visited the Carrara marble quarry where Michelangelo got the stone to build his famous sculpture called David. Stone from the quarry has also been used to build the Marble Arch in London and the Pantheon in Rome, among other notable monuments and buildings around the world. The young couple chose 10 pieces of marble from the quarry and shipped them back to their home in Horseshoe Bay where the stone arrived by truck to great neighbourhood fanfare. It was then that District of West Vancouver Coun. Nora Gambioli’s mom set out to carve the pieces she had brought back from Italy. A stone sculptor, Gambioli’s mom finished four of the pieces before she passed away when Gambioli was a child. Her father didn’t want to get rid of the 10 tons of marble in the backyard that his wife had worked on, and so it sat for decades until about two years ago when Gambioli’s father also passed away just two weeks after she had joined the district’s Public Art Advisory Committee as chairwoman. The timing was fortuitous. When Gambioli told the group about the collection of Carrara marble sitting at her parent’s house, they were happy to have it. It took a year to complete the task, but the marble is now arranged in a public art display at Ambleside in front of the Silk Purse Gallery. It is hoped the remaining six unfinished pieces will all eventually be carved by artists chosen by the advisory committee. Gambioli says she has watched passersby touch the marble, and little kids climb on it, and that’s a good thing. “I’m not an expert, but art is a form of expressing the community and the community culture, I think ideally,” she says and adds: “I think that art has to be, and I think our committee is quite dedicated to art being, as local as possible or at least representing local artists, materials, or themes.” Some residents love public art and some don’t, but Gambioli says public art in West Vancouver takes up only a small part of the district’s overall budget, about $50,000 a year, which is about half of what’s needed to commission a significant piece.

District of West Vancouver Coun. Nora Gambioli and Public Art Advisory Committee member Jim Carruthers visit the German Friendship Globe in Dundarave. The fountain is a granite globe, three feet in diameter, that floats on a cushion of pressurized water in a granite basin. PHOTO MIKE WAKEFIELD So far the committee hasn’t commissioned any art, but plenty of pieces dot the landscape: in galleries, on beaches, on street corners and in public buildings, notes the district’s website. If you haven’t yet, take a look at the south wall of the Aquatic Centre for an installation of moveable sunshades, or

sit in the Big Chairs by the Seawalk at the foot of 18th Street. Some public art in the district is highly visible, but some of it is subtle. Have you seen the small, stone figure of a mother

nurturing a child in an area of plants by the Beach House Restaurant in Dundarave? “It’s just something you kind of have to walk by and discover,” explains Doti Niedermayer, senior manager of Cultural Services, who says public art is an important part of public space. “It reflects the culture of the community, helps with community identity and pride. It creates a gathering place. I think the best pieces of public art create a place where people stop and gather and look at the art work, have a discussion. It reflects either the spirit of the place or has something to say about the environment or politics or beauty, or any of those things. So I think public art is just taking private out into the public realm.” Although West Vancouver has had public art for some time, it’s fairly recent that interest in it has increased, notes Niedermayer. Most public art pieces in the district are static, but some get rotated (such as paintings), and some go into storage. The Public Art Advisory Committee was formed to develop and implement a more official plan for the art, and is currently in the process of developing a new, detailed arts and culture strategy. Formalizing the processes around public art means that the committee now works from a set of criteria when making decisions to help avoid collecting pieces that are too difficult or expensive to maintain, or don’t have significance to the community. In the past, there was a less official process in place. As a result, the district is in possession of a few items that probably shouldn’t have been accepted, notes Gambioli. For example, a nine-foottall stone angel statue that

has sat in a rail car at the public works yard for 30 years. The donated piece hasn’t had a permanent home for decades and has to be kept out of the rain for preservation. It is now the subject of a study by the advisory committee to determine whether it can be sold or what should be done with it. “You have to be careful what you accept,” notes Gambioli. Another example is a 20-foot-wide floral clock with eight-foot-wide arms that was built into the ground at Millennium Park to mark the year 2000. The clock was expensive to maintain and was finally removed about five years ago. Criteria are important, warns Gambioli. And cost of maintenance is an important one. Although West Vancouver has a history of artists and architecture, it doesn’t have as much public art as other nearby communities. The committee hopes to grow the collection in the coming years. Gambioli says a new avenue of pursuing new pieces is through working with developers to consider public art as part of their proposals. She would like the district to end up with a comprehensive list and some activities around public art, such as art walks. “We’re definitely finally

making progress,” she notes, and that’s in part because of the development of the advisory committee, which consists of one councillor, one district staff member, and six community members who all have some specialty in the arts, including a working artist and a landscape architect. Each brings a different perspective to the table. The committee works with council, district staff, and the community to make recommendations about potential public art displays. Niedermayer, who is also a part of the committee, says there are going to be lots of opportunities for residents to provide input in the new strategic plan. Although she likes a lot of the public art pieces, Niedermayer admits she is partial to the Welcome Figure at Ambleside. “Because when I’m looking at the sunset or the sunrise and I’m looking towards Lions Gate (bridge), there’s the figure, this welcoming figure. It really stands out as a piece of beautiful art in a beautiful setting. It’s part of the landscape,” she explains. “I love how in many ways they (public art pieces) work with the environment. They are integrated into the environment and they reflect our ocean and our wood and our seashore.”

Mom best to curb bite-curious pups

Socialization – or the lack thereof – is what determines a dog’s behaviour as an adult.

It begins at about three weeks of age (when pups begin to become mobile enough to interact with litter mates) and ends at about 14 weeks. A new puppy owner anticipating life with their new dog may be tempted to bring the puppy home as soon as it is weaned from its mother, hoping to get a jump start on its learning. But humans are a poor substitute for a pups’ mother during this stage of development. Just because the mother is no longer nursing doesn’t mean that her job is done. In fact her job is just beginning as she takes on the role of canine educator in charge of socialization skills

Canine Connection Joan Klucha that can only be taught by mom and other litter mates. It may be agonizing to wait, but a puppy brought home before eight weeks of age is destined for behavioural problems. There are important life skills a dog owner just can’t teach as well as mom, starting with bite inhibition. Bite inhibition is when a

puppy learns how much pressure to apply to something in its mouth. Mom’s job, as well as a puppy’s litter mates, begins the early task of letting that puppy know when and how much mouth pressure is appropriate during interactions such as play or gaining access to resources. When a puppy applies too much mouth pressure the mother will yelp, growl, snap or even nip the puppy to say “Hey! That is too hard!” The other pups in the litter will do the same thing. When puppies go to their new human home, they immediately begin investigating things with their mouths, including our hands. A puppy that was taught well by mom will start his investigation with gentle mouthing but it is up to the humans to teach the puppy

that hands (or any other body part) in mouths are off limits. Pups who lack interaction with their litter mates and mother by being removed from the litter before eight weeks invariably lack impulse control. They tend to overreact to the slightest challenge or stressful situation and have difficulty calming down after a stressful event. Mom’s role is her ability to keep her puppies calm with her maternal assertiveness. Her calm presence and benevolent corrections help the puppy learn that bad things can happen but it’s OK. A lack of the mother’s calm assurance can also lead to separation anxiety. Aggression is another problem with pups removed early from the litter. Their inability to tolerate other

dogs and humans can lead to the aggression and fear of other dogs and potentially humans due to the absence of confidence, which is built through adequate litter mate interactions. A pup that lacks this valuable lesson will also develop food aggression and resource guarding issues. Pups who have been removed from their litter before eight weeks of age also have a difficult time understanding basic social behaviours from other dogs. Early play with litter mates allows them to learn the cues of a dog that wants to play and a dog that wants to be left alone. These play and social skills help them assimilate into transient social groups. They basically learn how to be a dog and how to talk dog! Current research suggests

that the optimum time for pups to bond with their human is between the 8-10 week age because they are more curious about their surroundings and confident enough to form healthy attachments to their human caregiver. But once the pup comes into the new caregiver’s home it is the owner’s turn to take over the socialization wheel. (I will review this in my next column.) Waiting until a pup is at least eight weeks of age is the first step in ensuring a balanced and well adjusted adult dog. Joan Klucha has been working with dogs for more than 15 years in obedience, tracking and behavioural rehabilitation. Contact: k9kinship@ gmail.com.

Dog waste piling up in city garbage cans You think you have a crap job? Try being an auditor tasked with figuring out just how much dog poop lands in City of North Vancouver trash cans.

In an effort to separate the waste from the garbage, the

city is launching a year-long pilot program to encourage dog owners to pitch poop into new red receptacles. Marked by Poop Happens signs, the crimson bins are set to be placed at off-leash dog parks at Mosquito

Creek, Kings Mill Walk and Lynnmouth Park. The new cans were installed following a city audit that determined a disproportionate amount of dog poop is filling trash cans when measured “by volume and also in

comparison to other types of waste,” according to a release from the city. Only small amounts of dog waste can be sent to the landfill, as large amounts are harmful to the environment and public health.

Collision course in AAA hoops

Eagles, Pipers push for playoff supremacy ANDY PREST aprest@nsnews.com

The North Shore senior girls AAA basketball playoffs are about to explode, with semifinals on Monday and what is shaping up to be a monster final on Wednesday at Argyle secondary. The action begins tomorrow with the first-place Argyle Pipers hosting the fourth-ranked Sentinel Spartans, and the second-seeded Carson Graham Eagles welcoming the third-place Handsworth Royals. Both Argyle and Carson, who finished regular season play with identical 5-2 records, will be heavily favoured in their Monday matchups having both racked up comfortable wins over Sentinel and Handsworth in league play. If form holds in the semifinals, it’ll set up a

matchup between two teams that both feel like they’ve got the firepower to claim the North Shore title. The Pipers are currently ranked No. 6 in the province while the Eagles are in the honourable mention section just outside of the top 10. The Pipers hold the edge in head-tohead games, having beaten the Eagles twice this season, but the matchup has been razor thin with Argyle eking out a 62-60 win during their only regular season meeting in December. Playoff predictions are risky business, but one thing seems certain – the Argyle gym will be rocking for Wednesday night’s final. “Argyle’s got a huge following, it’s going to be a tough game,” said Carson Graham head coach Cameron Nelson. “On their home turf, Argyle plays well.” If the final does end up as another chapter in the Argyle vs. Carson Graham saga, Argyle head coach Anthony Beyrouti is expecting an epic contest. “Both the fan bases, the parents, the kids, cousins, relatives, uncles – everybody gets excited for these games. When we play Carson it’s like a real rivalry,” he said. “It’s got me

all riled up. I’m kind of excited about it. They’re a very good team, they bring out the best in us. We definitely bring out the best in them. It’s nice to see two teams playing at a really high level, and when we play each other that’s usually what happens.” The Pipers come into the playoffs on a high following a 70-44 win over Handsworth on Tuesday. “We had our best game of the year on seniors night against Handsworth, the home crowd really took it to the next level and the girls responded by performing at the highest they’ve performed all year,” said Beyrouti. “It was great to watch.” The coach said he set up a treacherous exhibition schedule for his team to show his young Pipers what it takes to succeed. “We wanted to challenge them early and often so that they could kind of understand the level which you need to play at the senior level,” he said. “We’ve gone all over the place

to play the best teams and it’s really prepared our team to be in the right mindset towards the end of the season and down the stretch here. … We’re learning, we’re young. We’ve got to figure out how to play the game at this level. But we’ve had some positive signs the last little bit.” Leading the way for the Pipers are Grade 11 Georgia Swant, who made a name for herself by dropping 44 points in the provincial junior final last season, and Grade 12 sharpshooter Sierra Schefer. “Georgia and Sierra have really taken a lot of our scoring on their shoulders,” said Beyrouti. “They kind of lead the pack.” The Eagles, meanwhile, are paced by the trio of Georgia Nelson, Alex Walker and Tanis Metcalfe. The key for the Eagles is their height and defence, said Nelson, adding that Metcalfe, who stands six-foot-two, is the leader in that department. “We’re going to hopefully dominate the boards with height,” Nelson said about how his team stacks up against Argyle, adding that shutting down the dynamic duo of Swant and Schefer will be their No. 1 objective. “We need to make sure we take those two out, and we’ll be on top. Our goal is to make sure our outside shooters are on par. Unfortunately our kids are very up and down in their shooting – we can be on fire one game and fall apart the next. But

against Argyle, it’s got to be all defensive – make sure we get those stops, create some turnovers and we’ll end up on top.” Though his Eagles have lost to the Pipers twice this season, Nelson is counting on Carson to come through when the stakes are at their highest. “I think the home court advantage will probably play in their favour, but I think we’re going to end up thirdtime lucky. We’ve had very close games. We’ve got to play strong from minute one to minute 40, and we’ll end up on top. I just have this feeling this time we’ll end up on top.” The Lower Mainland Crehan Cup championships will follow the North Shore playoffs and Nelson is hoping his team can push their way to the provincial tournament. The top two teams at Lower Mainlands get automatic berths into provincials. “That Crehan Cup tournament will not be easy, there’s about five top teams in there,” said Nelson, adding that he believes his Eagles can still soar above the crowd. “This year, I’ve got the team. We’re mentally prepared, we’re physically prepared, the girls all want it this year. The end goal is to get to the B.C.s, and they’re all ready for it, they’re all practicing for hard. … We believe we’ve got what it takes to get to that tournament, and after that it’s OK wherever we stand.” As for Argyle, they’re

excited to play host to high-stakes hoops for the next week or so – on top of the North Shore final, the first three days of the Lower Mainland Championships will also take place at the home of the Pipers. “Argyle hasn’t hosted the North Shore playoffs in over 10 years,” said Beyrouti. “This is a cool experience for the kids to get to host the playoffs at their own place. Hopefully we can take care of business. … We’re trying to peak at the right time and the kids are working really hard, which is the key to the whole thing. They’re really putting in the time and really staying focused. These kids have worked really hard. It’s nice to see them achieve some of their goals.” !!! The AAA playoffs begin Monday with Argyle hosting Sentinel at 7 p.m. and Carson Graham hosting Handsworth at 7:30 p.m. The North Shore final is scheduled for Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Argyle. At the AA level playoff action starts with a Monday double header at Seycove secondary with Bodwell playing Windsor at 6 p.m. followed by Seycove taking on Collingwood at 7:30 p.m. The North Shore AA final is scheduled for Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Seycove.

Field notes

Canada claims 4th at Sevens World Series event Rugby Canada’s men’s sevens team, featuring North Shore players Harry Jones and Adam Zaruba, finished fourth at a HSBC Sevens World Series event in Wellington, New Zealand last weekend.

Jones acted as captain for the tournament, which ended with Canada’s first semi-final berth since the 2015 Japan Sevens. The Canadians went 3-0 on opening day in New Zealand before beating Argentina in their first playoff matchup to make the final four. Their medal hopes were dashed, however, by a semifinal loss to South Africa followed by a 28-22 loss against Scotland in the bronze medal match. The Canadians are back at it this weekend at a World Series event in Sydney, Australia.

EGGERT, Ted With immense sorrow we announce the passing of Ted Eggert, on January 11, 2017, a sunny day with calm waters befitting a sailor’s journey home. Born in Sunderland, England on July 14, 1927, he was the middle of three sons born to Jack and Norah. Ted entered the Royal Navy as a boy seaman, January 4, 1943. He saw wartime service in the North Atlantic, Mediterranean and Pacific theatres. Post war Dad saw service in the West Indies and South America, becoming shore based in Jamaica and Bermuda. Serving as coxswain to the Commander, he spent five years in Bermuda where two daughters were born. Dad was discharged from the navy in 1954 and joined his family in Canada, now grown by another daughter. Dad joined the Regina Police Service on May 1, 1955 and moved the family west to join the Vancouver Police Department in September 1956. In a career spanning three decades, Dad served as a beat Constable, Corporal in Communications, and Detective. During his service with the VPD, Dad received ten commendations including the Chief Constable’s in 1974. Dad retired from the VPD in 1984 to devote time to raising his fourth and youngest daughter. He retired with the respect of many colleagues in the VPD, many of whom have remained friends. He is missed deeply by his devoted daughters and sons-in-law, Paula (Bruce), Gillian, Sharmaine, and Kim (Gabe). Dad is sadly missed by the love of his life, Scotti, with whom he enjoyed many years of love and friendship. He is especially missed by his four legged companion Penny. Dad’s legacy continues through his five adoring grandchildren: Courtney (Devon), Casey (Mike), Shiloh, Dylan, Arlen and his great grandson, Linden. Long chats, backgammon, cards, scrabble and time with their legendary and loving Grandfather will be forever cherished, as will the many life lessons they each take forward. Dad will be remembered by his many friends and acquaintances for his humour, charm, generosity and kindness to all living things. The family extends immense gratitude nurses, doctors and volunteers on 7 West Gate Hospital and North Shore Hospice wonderful care. The family would also like active and retired members of the VPD enduring friendship and support.

Marjorie Mary Fearn, nee Sebastian, passed peacefully into the dawn light of January 25, 2017. She was the seventh child of ten born in 1922 to homesteaders in Punnichy, Saskatchewan. The family moved to the Wembley district of northern Alberta when she was a young child. Not a country girl in spirit, she took teacher training in Edmonton and began her teaching career at 20 in a one room schoolhouse before moving to Burnaby, BC to pursue her dream of teaching on the coast. As an eligible bachelorette, she enjoyed all the cultural activities the big city had to offer, before marrying Rodney Fearn in 1953. They shared a love of music and saw many of the leading figures of popular music such as Mitzi Gaynor, Lena Horne and Frank Sinatra. They built a house in the newly cleared area of Forest Hills on the North Shore, raised two children, Margo and Mark, and made many happy memories (and trips to Hawaii), during the 40 plus years they lived there. After the extensive garden became more labour than love, they made the adjustment to condo living. Marjorie was widowed in 2004, but continued to live a happy independent life, with support from her son. Late in life, her love of music resurfaced, and she was often heard singing a few lines from the Irving Berlin classic, “Blue Skies”. Lovingly remembered by daughter Margo (Lori), son Mark, and brother Mike and extended family. Special thanks to caregivers Anchita and Lynn, and the compassionate Dr. Dana Haaf, as well as the Palliative Care Team at Lions Gate Hospital. Private family gathering to follow at a later date. Blue skies, Mum, nothing but blue skies...from now on.
