Gerry O’Neil: Stanley Park Horse-Drawn Tours by Sarah Gordon

photos by Sandra Steier

Gerry O’Neil, owner of Stanley Park HorseDrawn Tours, is a man with many stories to share. He attributes his lifelong passion for horses to the influence of his father and grandfather. O’Neil was brought up Catholic in Quebec City where he was born and raised. During a Sunday morning Mass he clearly remembers noticing a racing schedule tucked discreetly in the middle of his grandfather’s Bible. That was a defining moment for O’Neil, and from that point on it was difficult to keep him away from horses. O’Neil moved to Vancouver in his late teens to learn English. Before long he was hired at the well-respected William Tell restaurant and within months he was promoted from busboy/dishwasher to junior waiter. O’Neil found this position challenging with his limited command of the language. He recalls mistakenly pouring hot chocolate sauce on a Beef Wellington instead of gravy and awkwardly conversed with the customers while a new order was being prepared by the chef. In 1981 O’Neil decided to go back to school to train as a farrier. After a short time spent shoeing horses he realized that although he enjoyed the trade it was extremely hard on his body, however the experience ignited a spark to start his own business. Horsedrawn carriages are a familiar site in historic Quebec City and he noticed that Vancouver was lacking this magical way to sightsee. In 1982 O’Neil decided to re-introduce horse drawn carriages to Stanley Park after a hiatus of thirty years and by 1985 he was working full-time at his new business. To be based in Stanley Park is a privilege and he is grateful for this opportunity. O’Neil is a hands on owner who is deeply involved in every aspect of the enterprise from shoveling “road apples”, to finding creative ways to market his business during the economic downturn with fewer American visits during the peak summer months.

Nov 23, 2012 - Feb 14, 2013

You may not be aware that O’Neil’s horsedrawn tour services are offered throughout Vancouver and surrounding cities from Hope to Whistler. The Cinderella pumpkin coach is straight out of a fairytale and will make you wonder where the fairy godmother is hiding. Carriages are available for graduations, weddings, proposals, photo opportunities at private functions, birthdays, and even funerals with an exquisite horse-drawn hearse O’Neil brought from Pennsylvania. Stanley Park Horse-Drawn Tours participates in many local parades and attends a number of community events from Steveston to Dunbar, White Rock to Anmore and SuterBrook villages in Port Moody. Kerrisdale village is highly familiar with the clip-clop of the majestic horses as they have been pulling carriages at Kerrisdale events for the past ten years. This year O’Neil was honoured to provide a carriage for Crofton Manor’s Queen’s Jubilee event and parade. The company currently owns three breeds of Draft horses (Belgian, Clydesdale and Percheron) which are bred to be strong, very calm and gentle. They are kept at the stables located in Stanley Park adjacent to the Vancouver Police Department’s mounted unit. The number of horses fluctuates between 16 to 20 and the company employees up to 24 staff during the summer months. People are drawn to the horses at events and photo opportunities abound. The horses are celebrities in their own right and have appeared in many television shows and films. They have been seen on the big screen in Bird on a Wire starring Goldie Hawn and Mel Gibson and This Can’t be Love starring Anthony Quinn and Katharine Hepburn. They are currently receiving international exposure with their appearances on the locally filmed hit television show Once Upon a Time. O’Neil and his wife Kathryn have lived in Kerrisdale for 12 years, along with their

• www.KerrisdaleInsider.com


daughters Saphire and Emily. In March 1983 O’Neil was out on the town with friends at a formal function at the Granville Island Hotel. His friends placed a bet that he would not ride a Belgian Draft horse (weighing 2200 pounds) onto the dance floor. O’Neil took to the challenge and headed back to the barn, loaded up a horse and returned to the hotel dressed in a tuxedo, riding horseback into the gathering. It was at this function that he met his future wife. He recollects “a group of beautiful women were there that night but a princess stood out in the crowd. I tried to charm her but she didn’t want to have anything to do with me. I always like a challenge and we are still together nearly 30 years later, lucky me.” Stanley Park Horse-Drawn Tours supplies thousands of complimentary tickets annually to help support non-profit organization fundraisers. Since 1996, the company has provided more than 10,000 children from inner city schools with free educational day trips in a program designed to fit the BC School Curriculum. The Gentle Giant Visit program is an incredibly unique and heartwarming opportunity that O’Neil offers the community. He and one of three specially selected horses make indoor visits to seniors’ residences and extended care facilities (visit the YouTube video Gentle Giant Visit with Pepper to see the magic firsthand). When O’Neil is asked why he offers this program his response is “why not?” He is aware how much happiness these gentle

creatures bring to people, and O’Neil’s charm is an added bonus. It is his mission, with the help of the horses, to leave the world a better place. While there is a small fee for this program, O’Neil points out that it only covers the costs. During the month of December, the Kerrisdale Business Association will be sponsoring four opportunities to enjoy a free horse-drawn carriage ride in celebration of Christmas in Kerrisdale. This old-fashioned method of travel exudes romance and charm, fitting with the season. Onlookers’ wave with delight at the decorated carriage filled with merrymakers singing festive songs, and at the gentle horses adorned in festive ribbons as they pull the carriage along. Hop onboard – the experience is a surefire way to put you in the Christmas spirit. O’Neil feels extremely privileged to play a part in so many intimate events, be it a proposal, wedding or funeral. He is deeply appreciative of his noble horses, who he gives full credit for helping create memories that people treasure. In turn, we should be very fortunate that O’Neil realized his dream and brought the magic of his horses to Vancouver. Stanley Park Horse-Drawn Tours (604) 681-5115 www.stanleypark.com

Gem Chocolates: A Gem of a Shop by Sarah Gordon

photos by Sandra Steier

Glenn Knowles’ energy and enthusiasm is contagious. His story is one that many of us fantasize about but may not be brave enough to attempt – to abandon a lifelong career in pursuit of a completely new path. It has been one year since Knowles, owner of Gem Chocolates, opened the doors of his charming chocolate shop, left behind his upper management job in finance, and traded in his business suits for a Euro chef shirt.

shop. Coming from the world of finance he was very methodical with his business plan and in determining where he would locate his business. Kerrisdale and Kitsilano best suited his demographics, and as luck would have it, Kerrisdale came out the winner. The anticipation of the store opening was high, both from customers and local merchants, who have been extremely supportive of the new business.

Three years ago Knowles decided it was time to do something dramatic and live life with no regrets. He registered at the Vancouver based Ecole Chocolat where he graduated with honours in the Master Chocolatier program. Soon after, he was selling his chocolates online and wholesaling to some impressive clients including the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel.

In the short time that Knowles has been in operation he has had the privilege of adding “award-winner” to his credentials. Knowles grinned when he told me that his Berry Blue (Rooibos blueberry tea infusion in milk chocolate ganache) won Silver at the 2012 Canadian National Chocolate Competition and qualified for judging at the International Chocolate Awards.

In 2011 Knowles made a decision to branch out and open his own artisan chocolate

Gem Chocolates unites rich, creamy organic fair trade chocolate with fresh ingredients.

Nov 23, 2012 - Feb 14, 2013

Each chocolate is handmade in the traditional artisan method in small batches without preservatives. Velvety ganache is paired with caramel and Belgian chocolate and only the freshest ingredients are used, ranging from vanilla beans to mint leaves, lavender, lemons, passion fruit and mangos. Amongst the shop’s thirty five chocolates (and counting), some of the top sellers include the award-winning Berry Blue chocolate, Caramel Crème (silky caramel with sea salt), Figaro (cocoa nibs), Lai-Chi (lychee), Calypso (lime and coconut), and Lava (a chile infused dark chocolate). Knowles thought long and hard about his business name. Two hundred options were considered before he returned to his original idea, to celebrate his family. He made an acronym from the first initial of his name combined with his two children’s names, and voila, Gem was born. He makes 200-700 chocolates per day single handedly, and regularly works 12 hour days. During the holiday season Knowles will make several thousand chocolates a day and will work 15 hour days. In addition, he manages

the accounting which comes to him naturally. Multi-talented, Knowles coordinated the company’s branding and design, and selected the striking accent wall colour which he calls “Gem” blue. The high ceilings make the small shop feel open and airy. Beautiful oversized photos of heavenly chocolate morsels lure you to the display case. Gem Chocolate’s customers come from all walks of life as almost everyone loves chocolate. Knowles notes how happy his customers appear. This likely stems from the euphoric power of chocolate and how it can make us feel as “giddy as a schoolboy”, like Ebenezer Scrooge in the conclusion of A Christmas Carol. Knowles is attentive to his customers and appreciates their feedback. He even hosts informal focus groups (lucky people!) and gathers input from those who attend his tastings. The shop receives wonderful word of mouth promotion from many customers who introduce their friends to Gem Chocolates. Knowles speaks French, Italian and German and is eagerly learning some Mandarin and Japanese from his customers.

All of the chocolates are works of art, however Knowles has an additional talent, he can customize them like a miniature artist’s canvas, with lettering, a photo, logo or a small message to suit your occasion (think corporate events, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, bridal and baby showers). Gem Chocolates is the only artisan chocolate shop in Kerrisdale. Every day is different for Knowles and he likes it that way. He is continually introducing new products with bars, covered nuts, packaged tea, coffee, and gift baskets making their debut for the holidays. The Christmas truffle balls are sure to please as they are simply beautiful and you can almost hear them begging to be eaten. Seasonal Eggnog chocolates also await you at Christmastime. Star of David chocolates will be available for Hanukkah, and Knowles points out that the Belgian chocolate is kosher.

Most customers prefer to select their own chocolates, however, during the holidays boxed chocolates will be available for customers dashing in to make purchases. Another option is to purchase a gift card as a decadent stocking stuffer. Knowles is always happy to chat and assist customers as they make their selections from the display case, and this is a wonderful opportunity to learn firsthand from a pro. Knowles is a descendant of Laura Secord, a name synonymous with Canadian chocolate. Secord was not a chocolate maker, but rather was a famous Canadian heroine from the War of 1812 who walked 32 km out of Americanoccupied territory to warn British forces of an impending American attack. The purveyors of Laura Secord Chocolates named the company in Secord’s honour, to celebrate her courage, devotion, and loyalty. Glenn Knowles shares these attributes with his courage to take a huge risk with a new career, his devotion to pursue his dream, and his loyalty to his new found passion as a master chocolatier.

Buchan’s Kerrisdale Stationery by Sarah Gordon

photos by Sandra Steier

Kerrisdale village has a wealth of long standing businesses which attests to the loyalty and support of this great community. Buchan’s Kerrisdale Stationery has been in business for 55 years and has only changed ownership once from the original Buchan family. Inna Vasilyev had admired Buchan’s Stationery and secretly wished that it was hers, and her dream came true when she had the opportunity to purchase it earlier this year. Vasilyev is originally from the Soviet Union where she studied to become an Electrical

22

Nov 23, 2012 - Feb 14, 2013

Engineer although she did not pursue this career. She and her family left the Soviet Union and moved to Israel where they lived for six years. People’s lives take some fascinating paths, and for Vasilyev it was a magazine article featuring Vancouver, and in particular the great beauty of Stanley Park, which caught her eye and helped make the decision to leave Israel. With her husband and two young children in tow they arrived in Canada sixteen years ago, having no previous knowledge of the country other than the magazine which had inspired their move.

• www.KerrisdaleInsider.com


She worked as a beauty advisor and realized how much she enjoyed retail and would like to have her own business. Five years ago she bought the store Mogi in Arbutus Mall. Vasilyev describes Mogi as a miniature version of Buchan’s which is approximately six times larger. While her son manages Mogi she spends her time overseeing Buchan’s Stationery where she is very busy with the buying, marketing, and updating the store with a website. She has also implemented a computerized inventory system to help simplify the laborious task of keeping track of so many items. Buchan’s is a well-stocked shop with everything your heart could desire in the realm of stationery and beyond. You can easily lose track of time browsing the rows of greeting cards, beautiful journals, agendas, pens, office supplies, wrapping paper, gift bags, napkins, calendars, candles and gifts, and this only the tip of the iceberg. Vasilyev has recently introduced Roger’s Chocolates and some Crabtree & Evelyn products to the store. Rolser carts from Europe (a shopping bag on wheels) with contemporary designs are a terrific way to do your shopping without hoisting heavy bags. Seymours LED lighted reading glasses are a fun and fashionable way to throw extra light on the situation in dark restaurants or when reading in bed. For the holiday season you will find everything from Roger’s Chocolates advent calendars to Christmas crackers, stocking stuffers, seasonal boxed cards and collectible Santa’s From Around the World by artist Jim Shore. Vasilyev has expanded the children’s section and is eager to point out some of the new additions which include Nakamas and Amazing World online toys, both are from Ganz who made Webkinz a household name several years ago. Another new addition is mic-o-mic, an educational German made toy, similar to Lego only it is soft and children can play with the model they create. You will also find everything from finger puppets to clocks, plush toys, car valet craft bags and books. Vasilyev is deeply grateful for her staff and their contribution to the business. Shannon Krushel is the assistant manager and Mandy Wong creates the window displays. Both women worked with the previous owner and provide an abundance of company knowledge.

As a busy proprietor, and like many small business owners, she dedicates long hours each day to running her shop. When she does find free time she likes to read and take Zumba classes at the community centre. She also enjoys strolling through the neighbourhood with a coffee and browsing in the charming shops. She thoroughly enjoys the people in this community and likes to give back by supporting local fundraisers. This holiday season I make a motion that greeting cards be sent to loved ones to adorn their fireplace mantels. In a world filled with texts and emails it is refreshing to walk into Buchan’s Kerrisdale Stationery and see the beautiful cards and stationery awaiting the final touch of penmanship and a stamp. Due to the amazing selection, make a note to save some time for browsing. Buchan’s Kerrisdale Stationery 2141 W. 41st Avenue 604-261-8510 www.buchanst.com
