21 Park board pushes seawall extension Folk Fest memories Gastown Grand Prix

Parties propose separate motions Sandra Thomas Staff writer

Park board chair Sarah Blyth introduced a seawall motion Monday night.

Both Vision Vancouver and the NPA are separately taking credit for bringing forward a proposal to extend the seawall from Kits Beach to Spanish Banks. The proposal is found in two motions: one from NPA Coun. George Affleck who was to bring a motion forward at city council’s Tuesday meeting, after the Courier’s print deadline. The other was a notice of motion introduced by Vision Vancouver park board commissioner Sarah Blyth at the board’s meeting Monday night. Her version won’t be dealt with until the board’s July 23 meeting. Affleck said Monday he had no idea Vision was

considering a plan to extend the 22-kilometre seawall when he announced last week his upcoming motion would ask staff to explore that same idea. On the same day Affleck announced his intentions, Vision Vancouver announced it had an anonymous donor lined up to help pay to complete such a plan, which is estimated to cost tens of millions of dollars. “So it became the battle of the motions,” Affleck said. Affleck said he was inspired to bring the motion forward after a visit to Kits Beach with friends several weeks ago. He added since working on the city’s official Transportation 2040 plan, extending the seawall made sense to him. See NPA on page 4

Summer school attendance figures on the rise Student numbers grow from 2,625 in 2002 to 5,319 today Cheryl Rossi Staff writer Increasing numbers of Vancouver teens are rolling out of bed in the summer months to sit through three and a half hours of academic classes that start at 8 a.m. Dan Wyper, who’s teaching Math 12 for the third summer in

a row, says most of his 21 summer students at Point Grey secondary seek to achieve a better mark than they did the first time around. “That’s why it’s fun to teach because they’re really keen,” he said. “It’s easy to teach them because someone else has taught them most of it already.” Some complete a course dur-

ing the summer and then try to achieve a higher mark in the same class during the regular school year. “Every kid is different,” Wyper said. “The main driver is to get a higher mark and the main driver of that is to get into university.” Churchill secondary principal Chris Renwick says high achiev-

ers take full-credit academic courses to free up space in their timetables to take other courses or lighten their loads. Peter Andrade, the school board’s manager of continuing education, notes the spread between secondary students enrolling in remedial versus completion courses has widened in the last

decade. He believes the shift has occurred as more people became aware that full-credit courses are available. Registrants in full-credit academic courses that are compressed into 85.5 hours of instruction have risen from 2,625 in 2002 to 5,319, as of Monday morning. See SCHOOL on page 4

School board manager says summer courses aren’t childcare

Continued from page 1 The numbers increased after a court case ruling made courses that meet provincial learning outcomes available at no cost to students starting with a pilot program in 2006/07. Registration in remedial classes has decreased. Students can enrol in remedial courses if they’ve previously taken the class and failed or want to upgrade, but they can only achieve a maximum of 63 per cent in remedial courses because

students can complete preview courses for no marks. Enrolment in secondary preview courses more than doubled from 660 in 2007 to 1,744 in 2008, the first full year of ministry-funded summer learning. Fees continue for courses that fall outside of provincial learning outcomes, most of them for elementary students. “Many parents would like to keep their kids in school for more than one course,” Andrade said.


they are shortened into only 40 hours of instruction. Both elementary and secondary

“Sometimes it’s not worthwhile driving halfway across town for two hours only… so we have designed some courses outside of the ministry curriculum for which parents can pay.” He says summer courses shouldn’t be perceived as glorified childcare because both elementary and secondary students face strict rules about tardiness and absences. In 2006/07, 1,165 students enrolled in 1,333 courses in the

province at a cost of $1 million to the ministry. In 2011/12, 46,466 students enrolled in 48,940 courses at a cost of $13.9 million. A ministry spokesperson could not say how many students complete the same course in summer school and the regular school year. Registration ends July 13 for most courses.

NPA councillor wants Vision to release name of anonymous donor Continued from page 1 “The seawall is not just a tourist attraction, it’s also a major transportation route,” Affleck said. Blyth told the Courier this week she’d been in discussions with Vision Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson about the proposal for months and long before Affleck’s move. Her motion, which if approved July 23, will see staff developing options to connect the seawall and provide a timeline and estimate of costs

for the job. Blyth’s motion also asks staff to investigate extending the Fraser River pathway along the Marpole shore. Blyth said she was surprised by Affleck’s announcement. “I had already been talking to Gregor about this for months,” said Blyth. “And then he said he might know some people who would donate to a project like this. I thought that would be amazing.” Blyth was inspired to research the project on be-

George Affleck half of numerous residents who’ve brought it to her attention since she’s been on the board.


“But I like to see if something can work before I bring it forward, which is why I didn’t announce it earlier,” said Blyth. She noted it’s very early days, but added if her motion is approved July 23, the work will begin in earnest. That preliminary work will include city engineering reports, community consultations, meeting with residents along the route, discussions with the federal department of Fisheries and Oceans, which manages the

foreshore along that stretch of beach, and nailing down the cost and funding. Blyth also wants staff to address any First Nations concerns regarding the extension of the Fraser River pathway. Blyth says she does not know the identity of the donor for the seawall project, and neither does Affleck, which is one of his concerns with the deal. Affleck wants Vision to divulge the name of the anonymous benefactor to the rest of council during an in camera session.

“The city through Vision just received a $30 million anonymous donation for Taylor Manor [supportive housing],” said Affleck. “We have strict rules around transparency and donations during elections. I don’t see this as much different.” In recent years, the park board has needed approval from the city for several large projects, which would likely be the case with the seawall. Twitter: sthomas10

12th & Cambie

with Mike Howell


Maybe you already knew this: That federal Liberals are proud of the work they’ve done to “make Canada the beacon of freedom and equality that we are today.” How do I know that? Well, I received an email last week from the “organization chair of the Liberal Party of Canada in B.C.” letting me know what great things the party has done for the country. But, according to the dispatch, things could be greater— even though former PMs Pierre Trudeau, Jean Chretien and Paul Martin all did their part. More work has to be done to ensure “full acceptance, safety and equal rights for all citizens” and that’s why Liberals will be “celebrating, reaching out” and signing up supporters at Pride parades and festivals across B.C. this summer. So you can bet on seeing Vancouver-Centre MP Hedy Fry and the Liberals at Pride in Vancouver Aug. 5. Which is not really a surprise, since politicians of all stripes usually attend the parade.

The federal Liberals will be “celebrating, reaching out” and signing up supporters at Pride parades photo Kevin Hill and festivals across B.C. this summer. Heck, even former NPAer George Puil showed up in a dress about a decade ago. So why am I using this precious space to prattle on about federal Liberals and Puil’s wardrobe when I should be updating you about all things civic? Good question. Here’s your answer: The email was sent to me from Braeden Caley who is, in fact, the “or-

ganization chair of the Liberal Party of Canada in B.C.” He is also, in fact, “executive assistant, media relations and communications” for Mayor Gregor Robertson, which was confirmed in the last dispatch I received from Caley about a development council approved in the West End. So what’s the big deal? Maybe, there is no deal.

But to be sure, I rang up Mr. Caley to ask him about his dual roles and what the public should make of a member of the mayor’s staff volunteering for the Liberals. “The thing is, I didn’t actually send that,” Caley said. “It sent automatically from their system. But it did go out on my name because I still am the organization chair for their party in B.C.”

Interestingly, the email was sent out at 4:01 p.m. on Friday, which, I assume, is still a time of day Caley would be working as the mayor’s executive assistant. “I actually told them that it shouldn’t have gone out at 4 p.m., if that’s what you’re thinking about,” said Caley, who was hired by the mayor’s office in March and became the guy we media types call when we need to speak to Robertson. The other guy, Kevin Quinlan, assumed the role as director of policy and communications. Caley’s allegiance to the federal Liberals is not a secret, since he worked as a constituency assistant for former MPs Ujjal Dosanjh and Raymond Chan. The mayor is on vacation and wasn’t available to talk about this. But, I assume—since Caley’s Liberal ties were well documented before he got the job— that Robertson, who was once and NDP MLA, doesn’t have a problem with his staff’s political allegiances outside of city hall. “The mayor has staff and supporters of all political stripes and I think the public would hope that no one is working on anything but the business of the city during business hours, and that’s certainly how we do business,” Caley added. Fantastic, said the taxpayer. Twitter: @Howellings

Tech support

The next provincial election is 11 months away, but thanks to the B.C. Liberal freefall, wannabe MLAs are lining up. According to the latest Ipsos Reid poll, 48 per cent of voters favour the provincial New Democratic Party compared to 29 per cent for Christy Clark’s Liberals. The B.C. Conservatives poll at 16 per cent, with the Green Party at six per cent. Simply put: The NDP is poised to take power, and people want in. Last month, Vision Vancouver park board commissioner Constance Barnes launched her NDP MLA nomination bid in Vancouver-False Creek. As a two-term park board commissioner, Vision personality and NDP booster, Barnes is connected. She’s a typical NDP candidate. Her nomination rival is not. Born in St. John, N.B., Matthew Toner graduated with a degree in economics from Carlton University before joining the Bank of Canada’s investment division, then later, the Canadian consulate general in New York. “I

was a broker between Canadian companies and the guys in New York,” he said, during a recent Courier interview. “Partnerships, matchmaking, strategic alliances, stuff like that.” With an eye on earning, Toner left government for the fast-paced world of dotcom startups. There was a social media business. An online ad agency in Toronto. And then the dotcom crash of 2001. When the dust settled, Toner landed in Vancouver. In 2006, after a fun-filled stint as an EA Sports game designer, he founded Zeros 2 Heroes Media in a 3,000-square-foot space on the top floor of a three-storey building at Cambie and Hastings. The company employs more than 30 people, and like the tech industry, evolves daily. Right now, projects include mobile apps, games, comic books and websites for a TV show called Continuum, and software projects for clients in New York and Denmark. Toner lives alone, renting near Tinseltown. He’s a private sector job-creator from a non-union industry. His vision for Vancouver rests on innovation—a Silicon Valley North for young capitalists. So why the NDP? “Yes, I thought you’d ask me that.” While Toner believes the NDP is moving toward the political

It’s his reason for running. “It’s an important industry, like an invisible pillar of the Vancouver economy that often gets short-shrifted at the expense of other, better understood indus-

)(.+# &*!$

tries in this province… If you look at the people who sit in office, none of them have that background, they haven’t got that expertise. They don’t understand how this stuff works.” Toner’s campaign remains in utero. He filed candidacy papers to the NDP head office

two weeks ago and has yet to hammer out a platform. But if elected, he’d push for tax credit reform to benefit entrepreneurs and increased tech education at post-secondary schools to better feed the industry. When asked about government regulation, he sounds more B.C. Liberal than NDP. “You’re not in the business of picking winners if you’re the government. Let the market sort that out, they’re way better at it than you are.” Investors, he said, have cooled on Vancouver, opting for more productive tech centres such as Seattle and Montreal. He pointed to the recent downsizing of Radical Entertainment, one of Vancouver’s major game developers, as proof of the industry’s local decline. As the fall NDP nomination meeting draws closer, Toner hopes to rally members of the tech industry who may not identify with any political party. “We’ve been alienated as a political group. We’re not joiners, we’re not voters, not really political people.” But will his pro-business campaign attract traditional NDPers in Vancouver-False Creek? “We’ll see… I think it’s going to be an interesting experiment to see how these two groups come together, if they can.” Twitter: @MarkHasiuk

Lending pass

The park board wants to make it easier for low-income residents to visit Vancouver attractions through a lending program that

operates similar to a library card. If approved, residents will be able to sign out a Family Lending Pass from the Vancouver Public Library for cultural venues, recreation facilities and attractions. That list could include museums, horticulture attractions, gardens, art galleries, science centres and recreation facilities. Some of the attractions confirmed so far include Bloedel Conservatory, HR MacMillan Space

Centre, Museum of Anthropology, park board pools, fitness centres, rinks and pitch and putt courses, Museum of Vancouver and VanDusen Botanical Garden. The passes will be loaned out for a short period of time and will be structured in a way so that residents who can afford to pay won’t have access to them.

Kyle Berger, an employee of the Jewish Community Centre on West 41st Avenue told me when he arrived at the centre this past weekend, building manager Jason Marques was attempting to collect 13 ducklings and their mother wandering the parking lot. The men scooped up the babies and placed them in a cardboard box with a plan to relocate the family somewhere safe. But when the mother duck refused to cooperate, the men walked the entire family over to VanDusen Garden with the babies in the box and mom waddling behind.

Due to illness, the official July 11 unveiling of a 40-foot cedar eagle by a master carver from Sechelt Nation at Klahowya Village in Stanley Park has been postponed. Richard Krentz is recognized worldwide as one of Canada’s most renowned aboriginal artists. He specializes in creating gold and silver jewelry featuring Coast Salish designs and is recognized as a leading carver of totem poles and masks. The carved eagle, mounted above a stage at Klahowya Village, has feathers made from cedar shakes and includes curved pieces to create the illusion of motion. Krentz chose to carve an eagle because of the bird’s significance to Coast Salish mythology. “When an eagle flies, it sees the big picture containing in itself the means of flight,” Krentz wrote in a press release. “Understanding the eagle’s power and our limitations places us into our environment with a sense of modesty. This makes the eagle an important part of Coast Salish culture and its teachings.” Another highlight at this year’s

Digging up the dirt on park board and community

Should helmets be provided as part of the city’s bike rental program next year?

Yes 49 per cent No 51 per cent This is not a scientific poll.

Clark’s lack of position on Enbridge could hurt B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix is noticeably frustrated by Premier Christy Clark’s steadfast refusal to take a position on the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, and it’s not hard to see why. Unless there is a radical shift in public opinion, Dix will assume Clark’s job after next spring’s election. But, even as premier, he may find himself powerless to have any impact at all on the final decision on Enbridge. The joint review panel’s hearings on the pipeline proposal are scheduled to end next April, about a month before the election. A final decision on the project is expected some time next year. But the B.C. government has chosen to register as an “Intervenor” in the hearing process, and not as a “Government Participant,” which reduces any role it can play in the hearings. Interestingly, Alberta—where the proposed pipeline would originate—has registered as a “Government Participant” and so is able to present its arguments and positions on an issue that is of vital economic importance to that province (a number of federal departments and agencies, plus towns along the proposed pipeline route—including Kitimat and Fort St. James—have also registered as “government participants”). A legal analysis recently released by the Environmental Law Centre at the University of Victoria has raised concerns that B.C.’s own interests may not be adequately considered by the review panel, as a result of the B.C. government’s refusal to play a role in the hearings. “While the Joint Review Panel has received evidence from the Alberta government as to the project’s benefits (particularly for Alberta oil producers) it has received no evidence from the B.C. government as to its costs and impacts for British Columbia,” write the report’s

keithbaldrey authors, Chris Tollefson and Emma Hume. “There is growing concern that this imbalance in the evidence submitted to the hearing may adversely affect the ability of the JRP to weigh the costs and benefits of the project, and to fully consider B.C.’s interests,” they conclude. Clark has insisted her government may present evidence sometime in the future, but the deadline for submissions has already passed. The UVic report concludes it is by no means certain, or even probable, that the panel will agree to hear evidence from B.C. at a later date. In fact, the report suggests the longer the B.C. government waits to attempt to submit evidence, the less likelihood the panel will agree to consider it. However, Clark has shown no signs of changing her government’s position any time soon. So it’s no coincidence that Dix has circulated an op-ed piece demanding that Clark make her government’s views known on an issue that has emerged as perhaps the most critical environmental showdown this province has seen in decades.

Dix notes Clark has said B.C. is taking “100 per cent of the risks” yet gets little benefit from the Enbridge project, and points out Clark has stated she is “pro-pipeline.” “This contradictory stance can only be interpreted as a deliberate strategy of a premier who wants the Enbridge pipeline to proceed, but doesn’t want to say so,” Dix writes. Dix and his NDP caucus have, of course, written to the National Energy Board, outlining their reasons for opposing the project. But he no doubt realizes that even if he were to win the next election, he may not have any further opportunity to push B.C.’s interests into the debate over the final decision on the pipeline. And that’s proving frustrating for him. Nevertheless, expect the pipeline project to loom large in the next election campaign. Clark may finally have taken a position on the project by then. But it may well be too late to have an impact on the final decision on whether the pipeline is built or not. ••• On a personal note, allow me to express my sorrow over the recent death of former NDP MLA Bill Barlee, historian, teacher, politician, prospector and tennis fanatic. Kind, funny, inquisitive and relentlessly optimistic, Barlee was one of the real characters of B.C. politics, and we became friends and constant tennis opponents and partners. Our games were punctuated by his constant chatter of baffling sayings, such as “you may come home” or “many a woman has walked the streets of Amsterdam.” A ball was never out; it was always “an inch and two-tenths wide.” Needless to say, he was also fiercely competitive. B.C. has lost one of its original treasures. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.





Avoid annoying invisible giant that is the Internet By now, you’ve heard about Karen Klein, the bullied bus monitor from upstate New York who is enjoying a massive financial windfall thanks to a Good Samaritan from Toronto. Klein was viciously taunted and teased, to the point of tears, by some Grade 7 students. Another student videotaped the little twerps, and put it online. It went viral. The Internet crashed down like Thor’s hammer, subjecting the bullies to ridicule and giving Klein a giant pile of cash ($655,000 and rising as I write this). This is the act of the invisible giant. It is sometimes kind and sometimes malevolent, and you had better not piss it off. The thing about the Internet is that anyone might be famous and important to hundreds of thousands of people, and you might not know it. For example, have you ever heard of Mike Krahulik?

The thing about the Internet is that anyone might be famous and important to hundreds of thousands of people, and you might not know it. Paul Christoforo hadn’t. In the winter of 2011, Christoforo, a small-time public relations guy working for a niche video game hardware company, got into a nasty email exchange with a customer. The customer forwarded the emails to, among others, Krahulik, who draws a web comic called Penny Arcade. Penny Arcade has more than 3.5 million readers. Krahulik fired back an email saying that the firm Christoforo represented wouldn’t get a booth at the upcoming PAX videogaming convention in Boston. Christoforo sent this masterpiece of spelling, punctuation, and grammar: “Were in 6 countries and you’re not going to take my money for a booth that’s a crock I can guarantee I’ll get a booth if I want one money buys a lot and connections go even further. He’s a native Bostonian from Little Italy . Who are you again?” Oops. Krahulik pointed out who he was, and that PAX was, in fact, his show. (It stands for Penny Arcade Expo). Then he published the email chain, and the web gleefully kicked Christoforo

letter of the week

matthewclaxton in the teeth for a while, turning him into a meme and a byword for arrogance and poor customer relations. The company he had been working for practically broke the sound barrier putting as much distance between themselves and their former PR guy. They didn’t do it fast enough to avoid a deluge of negative reviews for their products, most directly linked to “customer service.” I could dig out half a dozen similar cases: the recently ended Operation Bear Love Good, Cancer Bad campaign, which raised $220,000 for charities and emerged from a spat between a web cartoonist and a lawyer. Again in this case, the Internet sided with the cartoonist and jumped on the lawyer, who seemed oblivious to its power and reach as he added to an ever expanding list of targets for his lawsuit. The lawyer recently dropped the suit and declared victory in this bizarre episode, which eventually involved the efforts of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Groups like Anonymous have tracked down and publicly named people filmed abusing cats. Twitter users have managed to find everything from stolen cellphones to bicycles to cars by broadcasting the details of a theft and drawing thousands of pairs of eyes to the search. There seem to be a few general rules to avoid incurring the wrath of the Internet. First, don’t be a jerk. Yes, most trolls, halfwits, and blowhards go unpunished for their bad behaviour. Most is not none. Second, don’t poke people who are Internet famous. Thirdly, anyone can be Internet famous. I know better than to get into a fight with say, John Scalzi, Wil Wheaton, or 4chan. Don’t know who they are? Millions do, and those millions will jump to their defence if you are enough of a dirt-brained jackass. The Internet’s anonymity makes a lot of people into jerks. But it will also punish bad behaviour and reward the deserving. It’s a capricious giant. Toy with it at your peril.

The South Granville BIA contends that businesses are not leaving the area due to high rents and that new businesses continue to open. photo Dan Toulgoet To the editor: Re: “Art gallery moves east after 25 years,” July 4. It is unfortunate that your reporter didn’t fact check before he wrote his article regarding the departure of Equinox Gallery. These are the facts: From September 2007 to August 2008, South Granville lost 26 out of 183 retail businesses. From September 2011 to July 1, 2012, we lost 18 out of 183. Out of the 18, 16 were what I consider “independents.” 2007-2008 was probably the worst year for turnover since 2000, when I began tracking the data. On average, we see about 10 per cent of businesses leave for a variety of reasons—retirement, bad management, global economic pressures, changing demographics or styles, or the business model simply no longer fits the neighbourhood (another way of saying the business has not grown sufficiently over the course of its lease to absorb new market rental rates). We currently have 11 shops for lease or just over six per cent. According to commercial real estate experts, that is considered healthy. In 2007, South Granville had 17 art galleries. As of September 2012, we will have 15. While I have huge admiration for Andy Sylvester and his gallery, it is also true that Equinox Gallery has never participated or responded to any neigh-

bourhood initiative in 12 years. I find his endearment to the neighbourhood perplexing. As an example, Equinox chose not to participate in the most recent June 23 ArtWalk involving 15 galleries. Some galleries reported 800 people through their galleries in seven hours. Additional information: excluding banks. In 2007, South Granville had 43 national chains (multi province or international). In 2012, SG has 43 national chains—five of them located north of Broadway. In 2007, there were four. In most cases, our current national chains have replaced other national chains. Social media feedback would suggest these were all welcomed improvements. Are high profile nationals good for neighbourhood profile and walkby traffic? You be the judge. The nationals locate themselves carefully and bring with them huge marketing budgets. The spin off for savvy independents is beyond anything they could afford. Make no mistake, the cost of doing business in South Granville is high and it requires talent, attention to detail and nerves of steel to make a go of it. By all indications, South Granville continues to flourish and is considered to have some of the best shopping in the city. Sharon Townsend, South Granville BIA

Sharrows not painted bike lanes To the editor: Re: “Bicycle politics polarize and distract from debate,” July 4. I would like to correct an error, then provide some good news. Sharrows are not the same as painted bike lanes; they are bike symbols with two chevrons above them, located on roads where there

isn’t quite enough room for a bike lane. In our study, they were not an improvement to road safety. On the other hand, we found that many changes made by the City of Vancouver have resulted in much improved safety: separated bike lanes; residential street bikeways (even better with

traffic diversion); painted bike lanes (even better where they are not between parked and moving cars); and off-street bike paths. It is wonderful to see changes that promote this healthy mode of travel and make it even safer.

Joe Fortes facts get corrected

To the editor: Re: “Fortes’s beach,” June 29. I would like to convey my appreciation for Megan Stewart’s recent review of my biography, Our Friend Joe: The Joe Fortes Story. As a gentle “heads-up,” I should point out that there were three misquotes of dates in this review: the Great Vancouver Fire took place in 1886, not 1885. Joe Fortes arrived aboard a merchant vessel in

1885, not 1886. Joe Fortes rowed onto its (English Bay) shores in 1887, not in the early 1890s. Also, note that “pubic spaces” should have read “public spaces.” These observations aside, the review was timely and helped generate much positive interest in our Our Friend Joe event at Roedde House Museum, June 30.

Players attach floating costumes to ‘paper’ dancers

Game designer throws ballerinas at female market Elizabeth Boylan doesn’t favour the shooting and space genres she feels saturate the videogame market. Instead, the creative director of VectorBloom Technologies is creating games that incorporate ballerinas, butterflies and lulling music with a long-term goal of building a cult following among girls and young women aged 12 to 28. “There haven’t been enough game designers who are female. Now’s the time for females not to be intimidated by entering the market,” said the Emily Carr University of Art and Design dropout who registered VectorBloom in 2008 and started developing apps in 2009. “Always the best games are

made by people whose intention is to make a game that they love,” she added. Boylan, 36, had been struggling with developing a puzzle game but cast that aside to piece together a game based on her childhood passions. Originally from Montreal and an admirer of the artistry of Cirque du Soleil, she longed to study ballet as a girl and loves music and costumes. She plans to develop 12 mini games under the umbrella title of Big Top Ballet. Players of Kaleidoscope, the first mini game, which was released at the end of February, attach floating costumes to “paper” ballerinas that spin faster and faster. It’s game over when too many costumes are dropped. It’s available for download to computers and smartphones. When the monarch butter-

fly arrives in the next version of the game to be released on Facebook in September, players need to fly the monarch through hoops to transform the ballerinas into butterflies as the music soars. Boylan said the games will weave together and explore fantasy and nightmares. “That appeals more to females than having to spend hours to unlock all the levels instead of being able to explore which

one they like best,” she said. Boylan isn’t worried some may see Big Top Ballet as playing into girlish stereotypes. “Part of the whole benefits of freedom, and that’s what the feminist movement is about, is the freedom to choose,” Boylan said. “When I’m free to choose without reacting to the patriarchy, then I’m going to create whatever I want.” Boylan’s collaborators in Big Top Ballet include her hus-

band, who’s a programmer, and ill-esha, a former Vancouver-based music producer, DJ, vocalist and MC. Boylan, who lives in Nelson and plans to return to Vancouver next month, connected with illesha through Salmo’s Shambhala Music Festival. Boylan raised $5,000 through a crowd funding website for apps last summer. She hopes to pay online investors the required 54 per cent pre-

mium of their contributions from game sales by fall. More than 6,000 individuals “like” Big Top Ballet on its Facebook page. As the lead in a miniscule games studio, Boylan hopes to build interest incrementally. “Eventually people will be talking about it because of the merit of the music and the art and game play,” she said.

Assembly of First Nations chief praises Point

Musqueam elder leaves education legacy Naoibh O’Connor Staff writer

Norma “Rose” Point, a well known Musqueam elder whose life’s work revolved around First Nation education and health, died unexpectedly July 2. The 78-year-old was a tireless teacher who understood the value of education and who was known for her generosity, compassion and empathy, according to daughter-in-law Linda Point. “She really wanted to share her knowledge, whether it was about education or about health issues for babies. She had an amazing willingness to share with everyone… and she almost never said ‘No,’” Linda Point told the Courier. “I reminded her when she got a little older that you’ve got to take it a little bit more easy, but she just didn’t slow down.” Point retired from her position as an aboriginal services adviser at BCIT in March— she travelled to work at the Burnaby campus by bus every day from the Musqueam reserve (51st and Dunbar). Prayer and funeral services, held late last week, attracted hundreds of mourners including Lieutenant Governor of B.C. Steven Point, a relative through marriage; Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, president of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs; Grand Chief Edward John of the First Nations Summit; ®

and representatives from post-secondary institutions. In a press release issued Friday, Assembly of First Nations National Chief Shawn Atleo called Point a great woman who touched the lives of many. “She dedicated much of her life to ensuring education was a tool and a vehicle to advance the aspirations of First Nations learners,” Atleo stated. Point was originally from the Seabird Island Band, which is part of the Sto:lo Tribal Council. She married Cagney Point from the Musqueam Indian Band in the 1950s, was welcomed by the community and lived on the reserve from then on. She was also linked to the Nlaka’pamux in the Thompson region where her mother Theresa was from. Point has four sons and three grandchildren. During her career, she was involved with the Native Education Centre and worked at the University of British Columbia and the Vancouver School Board. She served on the VSB’s First Nations Advisory Committee in the late ’90s until the early 2000s, according to board spokesman Kurt Heinrich. She also served on the district’s steering committee. Trustee Ken Clement, who knew Point for at least 20 years, said she was one of the original First Nations

Making its Canadian premiere at the Rio Theatre, July 12, the film follows a team of four skateboarders and two bands who spent the summer of 1999 towing a 5,000-pound portable skatepark behind an old van with failing brakes to bring skateboarding and music to kids in rural areas of Western Canada. Winner of Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking at the 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival, Hicks on Sticks screens at 7 p.m. (all ages) and 10 p.m. (licensed 19+ only).

kudos & kvetches PNE pleasure dome

Like a lot of Vancouverites, we go to the PNE every summer looking for action. And where’s the best place to find that certain someone to share a bag of mini-donuts and a side of cuddles? Not Superdogs, that’s for sure. No, for our $20 admission, the best place to make a body connection is the Summer Night Concert series. As a public service, K&K has carefully analyzed this year’s PNE concert lineup, excluding the Family Fun Series because that would be creepy, to provide readers with the best chances of finding romance at the fair this summer. • Aug. 18: Heart What: Simply put, this will be a steamy jungle of cougars and manthers taking a walk on the classic rock wild side. Best song to make your move: Pill-enhanced hormones should kick into overdrive during “Magic Man” and “Barracuda,” but if you really want to seal the deal, let the lyrics to “All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You” do the talking. Romance forecast: Hot flashes with a chance of regret in the morning. • Aug. 19: Emerson Drive What: Albertan yokels who aren’t afraid to lay it on the line.

It’s a family affair for Eat Street cinematographer Jeremy Shepherd Contributing writer

He won a Leo award recently for his cinematography on the food travel show Eat Street, but before that, making movies was what Shane Geddes did to avoid homework. “They really didn’t like taking French, so they talked their teacher into letting them make films instead of writing essays and then giving an oral French presentation,” explains Susan Geddes, Shane’s mother. “They ended up learning way more French than they would’ve anyway, and they also ended up learning way more film.” Shane laughs at the memory of Super 8 cameras and gangster movies during a break from Eat Street, which chronicles the cuisine streetside vendors sell across North America. “We were kind of lucky enough that the films were good enough to let that slide by,” he says of the drive-by shooting story with classroom dialogue woven into the plot. Shane, 30, has a disposition for cinema that has its roots in his father David Geddes’ fascination with nature photography. Shortly after graduating from high school in California, Susan spent some time on the road, ultimately heading north. “I picked Dave up hitchhiking in 1969 when he was looking for work as a logger in northern B.C. and I was a California girl travelling in my Volkswagen van, hiking and seeing the country,” Susan remembers. Shortly after deciding to pursue a career as a photographer, David enrolled in a twoyear program at the North Alberta Institute of Technology. “The second year of that course they introduced us

North Vancouver-born cameraman Shane Geddes (centre) won a Leo Award recently for his work on the Food Network’s Eat Street series. to film and television production, and that’s where I got the bug for film,” he says, discussing the skill required to blend motion, depth, and story. “It’s the ultimate photography.” With David working as a well-educated waiter after graduation, the newly married couple decided to invest in the future. “My mother let me use her house as collateral to buy my first 16mm camera and then we basically starved for the next 12 years while I built up my career,” David says. David accumulated unpaid experience until he got a life changing phone call from the CBC news program The Fifth Estate. “They needed an extra cameraman just for one day. Fortunately for me I got the phone call. With that one day’s worth of work, my career started.” David also picked up a credit on the sci-fi horror classic The Thing, as well as the teenage cop TV show 21 Jumpstreet. Despite the family pedigree, Susan, a painter whose artwork has been exhibited at several galler-

ies, says she didn’t think her kids would follow in their father’s footsteps. “When I was a kid I always said the last thing in the world that I want to do is become a filmmaker,” Shane acknowledges. “The older I got the more I realized it was in my blood.” (Shane’s sister Sorrell Geddes currently attends film school in California.) After graduating from Concordia University, Shane found himself at the centre of Vancouver’s booming film industry. He also experienced the anonymous drudgery that can be synonymous with large productions. “I wasn’t really leaving a mark on anything that I was working on,” Shane says, discussing the distinction between making a film and supporting a production. Eventually landing a job on the Food Network’s show Glutton for Punishment, Shane was able to reshape his career. “I transitioned... into the kind of shows that I’m shooting now, which are more documentary and lifestyle television, and it’s a much better world.”

In what has become a pattern in the Geddes family, Shane was too busy to pick up his Leo for best cinematography in an information or lifestyle series for Eat Street, leaving his father to accept the honour and make a speech. “I was so thrilled for him that I teared up,” David says. “It was passing the torch.” “In retrospect, that meant more to me than the award,” Shane says of his father’s speech. “I got some texts from people that I knew who were at the awards ceremony and they told me that his acceptance speech was the most honest and most amazing one of the night, so that was pretty touching.” The award is also impressive considering Shane’s relative inexperience in television. But it’s not the first time the father and son team have experienced winning a Leo. “A couple years ago I won the Leo for best feature cinematography,” David says, referring to the independent film A Simple Curve. “On that particular project I had Shane shoot the second unit footage for me. You know how they always show a short clip from the movie when they show the nominations? They used footage that Shane shot in the clip.” “A bunch of people approached him that night and they’re like, ‘The show was amazing, the snow footage was incredible,’ and it was all the stuff that I’d done,” Shane recalls, laughing. Now working 10-hour days on Eat Street and toying with the idea of eventually creating his own shows, Shane says he’s content with his lot in life. “It’s kind of the best of both worlds: it’s travel documentaries that are focused on food,” he says. “What else do you want to be surrounded by when you’re at work?”




Bard on the Beach does Merry Wives of Windsor... Ontario

Countrified Shakespeare comedy hoots and hollers a little too long Merry Wives of Windsor

At Bard on the Beach until Sept. 21

Tickets: 604-739-0559,

Willie, meet Tammy, Loretta and Patsy. That would be William Shakespeare, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline in Johnna Wright’s country-western take on The Merry Wives of Windsor. “Stand By Your Man” and “Sometimes It’s Hard To Be A Woman” are just a few of the 1960s country tunes included in this yee-haw production. “What a hoot,” said a fellow near me after the uproarious standing ovation whilst the entire ensemble enthusiastically linedanced across the Douglas Campbell Studio Stage. This will likely be the best revenue-producing play of Bard on the Beach’s 23rd season. But that doesn’t make it Shakespeare’s best. Director Wright says in her production notes that Merry Wives is “a love letter to the Elizabethan middle class,” written (mostly in prose) on Shakespeare’s home turf about characters recognizable in his home town of Windsor, England. Wright moves the play from Elizabethan Windsor to 1968 Windsor, Ont.—although it feels more like Canadian cattle country with the cowboy boots, fringed cowgirl getups (by Drew Facey) and a frontier-looking bar (designed by Pam Johnson) with Benjamin Elliott’s upstage country/western band. How country is it? Well, if a very funny Todd Thomson (as host of the Garter Inn) were to drag his drawl out any longer, we’d have

Johnna Wright’s country-western take on The Merry Wives of Windsor is set in Windsor, Ont. circa 1968. exited Vanier Park 15 minutes later. As it is, two-and-a-half hours is just too long for such flimsy fare. Sir John Falstaff (Ashley Wright) sets out to seduce both married gals Mistress Ford (Amber Lewis) and Mistress Page (Katey Wright) hoping to bilk them of their husbands’ money. Mr. Page (Neil Maffin) hardly seems to break his stride on the way to the curling rink when he hears about the plot, but Mr. Ford (Scott Bellis) is beside himself with jeal-

ousy. In the subplot, Evans and Dr. Cauis, a couple of suitors for the Page’s daughter Anne (Kayla Deorksen) have a non-duel whilst young Fenton (Aslam Husain) woos Anne right under their very eyes. Wright sends it all up, up and away, and if the play were an hour shorter, it might have worked for me. Patti Allan, as Mistress Quickly, hams it up royally and Allan does ham exceedingly well. David Marr plays Dr. Caius as a Frenchman with an ac-

cent so thick you can cut it with the dueling sword he wields. Anousha Alamian, as Evans, is a yoga-practising East Indian or Pakistani. Allan Morgan, as Shallow, wears a Shriner’s fez and rides a scooter. So much stuff. But so much talent to work with. These are some of the country’s finest. Wright, as rotund and lascivious Falstaff, keeps his character just this side of over the top even when wearing a muumuu and picture hat. Bellis, not really known for comedy, is very funny as the outraged spouse and even funnier when his character takes on the disguise of beat poet, beret-wearing Mr. Brook. Bellis’s dive into the laundry basket is worthy of Cirque du Soleil. Wright (Katey) and Lewis are well paired in their crinolined dirndls and bouffant air dos as the perpetually plotting housewives. The musical cues—like “Morning Has Broken” when a badly hung-over Mr. Ford wakes up in the bar—are funny and well timed. And, of course, the language is grand. We should all start saying, “Let the sky rain potatoes” as does Falstaff when things are looking good. This Merry Wives has so much life breathed into it, it explodes like an over-inflated balloon all over the place. The best part is seeing these hard-working actors—like Morgan and Allan—having so much goshdarn fun. They do a dance so sweet, they almost melt. —Jo Ledingham

Twice bitten Spider-Man blockbuster balances story and spectacle The Amazing Spider-Man

Now playing at Dunbar, Park, Scotiabank In case you haven’t noticed, superheroes are hot. So let’s dispense with the first question on everyone’s lips, as to why a Spider-Man reboot was necessary, so hot on the heels of the last trilogy (Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 came out in 2007). Whether hatched from the same egg as the Marvel comic or not, The Amazing Spider-Man is simply a superb piece of summer entertainment, one that eyes the bottom line but doesn’t forget that it was a good story that started the thing in the first place. It took (500) Days of Summer director Marc Webb to strike just the right balance between intimacy and IMAX fireworks, and it took a Brit to breathe new life into a great American hero: Andrew Garfield is Peter Parker, a teen whose parental abandonment still stings just as much as that spider bite he just got in the lab. Ah yes, the spider bite. You may think you know the story, but you haven’t heard it told quite like this. Peter lives with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben (Sally Field and Martin Sheen) but is desperate to know the circumstances that led his parents to flee in the middle of the night. He stumbles on some of his father’s old papers, a trail that leads him to Dr. Connors (Rhys Ifans), his dad’s old partner, and a leading expert on cross-species genetics. Peter goes poking around the lab and finds not one spider, but hundreds of the things, nestled in a spectacular network of techno-webs.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone share a tingly moment in The Amazing SpiderMan. Peter’s first brushes with the powerful side-effects of the bite are comical, as is the trend (see Chronicle for boys fooling with their new superpowers). The first time he swings from a web, he takes out the outdoor seating of a Starbucks. Peter hones his spidey skills in private, with the aid of his skateboard, in an infectiously joyous sequence. Making Peter equally giddy is the brainy and beautiful Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Even if you didn’t know that Garfield and Stone are a real-life couple, it’s apparent that their chemistry is better than anything

Dr. Connors could cook up in his lab. Inconveniently, Gwen is the daughter of an overprotective police captain (Denis Leary) who wants Spider-Man in custody. But Peter can’t give up the costume, which he designed himself (and which Gwen’s dad calls “a unitard”): Dr. Connors has gone all mad-scientist in the lab, transforming himself into a powerful lizard that roams New York City’s sewers. Connors is a modern villain, conflicted and forced into bad deeds by an Indian guy and the dying head of a corporation. Plus, when’s the last time you heard a

bad guy quote Michelangelo? (“Would I… be free, to cast off flesh wherein I dwell confined.”) Peter Parker is equally angst-ridden. Though his father’s last words to him were “be good,” it takes some time (most of the movie, in fact) before Peter can use his powers altruistically, with no thought of revenge and without some degree of teenage cockiness. Garfield conveys a lovely range of hurt, neglect, recklessness and moral duty, making this as much a coming-of-age story as it is a superhero movie. Time and place is distinctively modern: sure, Peter carries a vintage camera around, but The Daily Bugle is a 24-hour news network. And Peter’s gee-whiz sheen is gone. Case in point: Peter is the aggressor in one make-out scene with Gwen, while Tobey Maguire, in Spider-Man one through three, would’ve run home to Aunt May. Visuals are impressively laid out and fight scenes make dizzying use of close-ups. There are only one or two jarring scenes that mess with the tone: one, when the score threatens to drown out a Lizard/Spidey smackdown in a school hallway; and another, when horrormovie piano riffs make us momentarily forget which theatre we wandered into. But in Garfield, the producers picked a perfect Peter Parker (say that five times fast). And the moment we start swinging and see the city from Spider-Man’s perspective, we know that extra money we spent on IMAX was worth every penny. —Julie Crawford




Recollections of festivals past gathered for Memory Project

Hille takes trip down memory lane at Folk Fest State of the Arts

with Cheryl Rossi

The musical epiphanies, love stories and yearning expressed in memories submitted to the 35th annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival all felt familiar to performer and longtime festivalgoer Veda Hille. “It’s this huge shared experience that we have. The epiphanies that we all have when listening to music are very real, but they are multiple and they are familiar, I think that’s part of why we go back.” Earlier this year, event organizers put out a call to festivalgoers to share their recollections of past events. Hille then wove these anecdotes into seven songs for The Memory Project, which she, her band, a choir and special guests will perform on the main stage on the closing night of the festival, which runs July 13 to 15 at Jericho Beach Park. “I’m quite pleased with the way the songs are working out, partially because it’s so much fun working with a huge choir and a rock band,” said the singer-songwriter and composer. “That gives it, also, the sense of community that is inherent in the writing process.” Hille first attended the festival in 1980 when she was 12 and new to the city from Langley. “I was totally geeky and didn’t have friends

yet and then through some fluke these super cool kids invited me to go to the festival with them,” she said. “We snuck in, we pretended we were younger than we were because if you were under 12 you got in free.” Hille not only remembers this first taste of independence from her parents and how an enduring friendship was born, but also incredible performances over the years by artists including Rory McLeod, a nascent Spirit of the West and Germany’s Dagmar Krause. “She was doing songs by Bertolt Brecht,” Hille said of Krause. “Those have become major touchstones in my life and she’s one of the premiere interpreters who are alive today, so the fact that I got to see her when I was young was amazing.” When Hille played her budding Memory Project songs for punk accordionist Geoff Berner, he promptly contributed his own adolescent memory. “Of being a 15-yearold Socred and seeing Bill Bragg and becoming someone else entirely,” she said. Berner will join Hille in the song she’s written about young teens “having their minds blown” at the festival. Dan Mangan will sing the centrepiece song that’s based on a bittersweet romantic letter about a relationship breaking down. “He’s going to make everybody cry,” said Hille, who’s also written a number based on a festival fan letter penned in 1992 by a then 13-year-old Chloe Raunet. Hille looked Raunet up and discovered the now 33-year-old sings in a post-punk band called Battant in

London, England and tours all over Europe. This year, of the more than 60 artists and groups from around the world who will perform at the festival, Hille is particularly keen to see the Johnny Clegg Band, the Cave Singers, Lucinda Williams, Stephen Fearing, Ani DiFranco and Royal Wood. With projects that include A Craigslist Cantata, the Vancouver Complaints Choir and Songs of the False Creek Flats, Hille has become a master of piecing together others’ desires, annoyances, history and reflections. “My brain is predisposed towards puzzles,” Hille said. “People are interested right now in using real language from real people.” This isn’t the first time Hille has composed for a Folk Fest anniversary. She created the Silver song cycle in 2002 to celebrate the festival’s 25th anniversary, adapting the artsy song “INSTRUCTIONS” from her 1996 album Spine to reflect festival-going etiquette, including a request for those in need of relief not to pee in the duck pond, so she felt honoured to be asked to commemorate the 35th. “I feel very strongly attached to the festival. I feel like it was the place where I came of age as a music listener and then again where I came of age as a music performer, so it’s been a really important place in my own life,” Hille said. “So to get to help celebrate twice is just extra special good.” For more info, see Twitter: @Cheryl_Rossi

Cyclist: ‘You just have to race Gastown’ Megan Stewart Staff writer

After a three-year hiatus kept the exhilarating criterion from the cobbled streets of historic downtown Vancouver, the Gastown Grand Prix returns Wednesday. And it’s one race no cyclist should miss, says Garneau Evolution team captain Tim Ambercrombie. “The racing experience is like none other,” said the 33-year-old Vancouver resident and 2011 Tour de White Rock champion. “Whether you’re trying to win or not, you just have to race Gastown because it’s so incredible to be a part of it.” The criterion (or “crit”) circles a 1.2-kilometre loop along Water, Carrall and Cordova streets. Elite cyclists—120 men and 40 women—round the same compact course as thousands of spectators line the streets to watch and grab tables in nearby bars and restaurants. Crowds can swell to an estimated 30,000 people. “They’re not a European tradition,” said Ambercrombie, and unlike the Gran Fondos or multi-day races like the Tour de France, a crit keeps spectators in mind. “They’re designed in North America. They’re designed to be spectator-friendly courses.” A special feature known as primes (pronounced “preems”) adds to the excitement. These are races within the race that reward cyclists for specific feats or lap times as the race progresses. For Ambercrombie, this means his athletic triumphs have an audience even if a criterion isn’t his specialty. “As an amateur in B.C., the experience is like none other. For example, I won the White Rock Road Race last year and it means an incredible amount to me, but there are not many people who I knew who came out to White Rock at 9 o’clock on a Sunday morning to witness that,” he said. “But everybody I know will be out on Wednesday evening in Gastown, having a few beers and watching the action. It’s important to go and participate and do as well as I can.” The Grand Prix was cancelled after the summer of 2008 when sponsorship dried up due to the worldwide economic downturn, but that wasn’t

“Wired to win”

The director of the tennis centre at the University of B.C. had a feeling about homegrown talent Filip Peliwo. In an interview with the Canadian Press, J.J. Mahony said the athlete he coached for eight years “was wired to win.” “There was something special with Filip. His passion was high, almost like the term: eat, sleep and breathe.” Filip Peliwo swept to world No. 1 Sunday as the 18-year-old from North Vancouver claimed the junior boys Wimbledon title.

Following the 1993 Grand Prix, which was sponsored in part by Canadian Tire, the race was declared “dead” by the Province newspaper. Nine years later sponsorship came through in 2002 from Steamworks Brewing. The B.C. Cancer Society was another previous sponsor. Although the event was popular for racers and spectators alike since its creation in 1973, after the 2008

In his third Grand Slam final of the year, Peliwo clinched the victory in two sets after he came from behind to beat Australian and former world No. 1 Luke Saville, 7-5, 6-4. “To win a Grand Slam is one of my biggest achievements and to do it at Wimbeldon, the most prestigious tournament, it’s great,” Peliwo told reporters in a nation-wide conference call. “To be put together with names like Federer, to have my name in history with one of the all time greats, it’s a great feeling.” The teen joins Roger Fe-

derer, whom he could hear beating Britain’s Andy Murray on Centre Court while he was winning his own championship, as a previous winner of the junior title. The win marked a triumphant, historic success for tennis in Canada as Peliwo joined Montreal’s Eugenie Bouchard as a winner after she clinched the junior girls Wimbledon championship. This is only the second time since 1981 that the junior champions have both come from the same country. “I knew it would be a great achievement if we

next five years to relaunch the Gastown Grand Prix. Roy is optimistic the five-year deal, which includes $40,000 in prize money this summer, will continue into the future. He is enthusiastic about the Grand Prix and its positive spin offs for Gastown, where global Relay keeps its head office. “For the average person, I think you just have no sense of the energy, the capability of these guys by watching them on television compared to watching them live,” he said. Global Relay, which was founded in 1999, committed roughly 50 of its 200 Vancouver staff members to staging the event, which has been more than a year in the making. They join 200 volunteers and Mark Ernsting as the race director. Roy said the experience has been an education in the business of cycling and one of the company’s most rewarding team-building exercises. Now known as the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix, the race lands in the middle of B.C. Super Week and includes a hair-pin turn from Water to Cordova Street, technical manoeuvring and the risk of spills on slick cobblestone streets. Heritage low-rise buildings bordered by leafy trees and a cheering throng of fans create a scene Ambercrombie describes as “highly, highly memorable.” “Coming up Water Street […] it creates this sort of tunnel of excitement and that atmosphere is absolutely amazing. It’s not a course that suits me—I’m not a criterium rider at all—but it’s an incredible experience that I tell everyone if they get the chance and they’re at that level [of competitive cycling] you just have to race Gastown.” The Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix is free for spectators. The start and finish line is at the intersection of Cambie and Water streets with opening ceremonies beginning July 11 at 5:45 p.m. Women’s staging begins at 6:05 with the gun going off 10 minutes later. Men’s staging begins at 7:20 and the race begins 10 minutes after that. For more details, visit Twitter: @MHStewart

were both champions,” Peliwo told reporters after his win. Canada is emerging as an unexpected tennis threat on the international stage. National media are tracing the success to six years back when a heralded French coach was brought on to oversee the development program at the national training center in Montreal. Milos Raonic, the highest-ever ranking men’s player in Canadian history, is part of that up-swell, as is Vancouver’s Vasek Pospisil and Rebecca Marino, who is currently taking an indefinite break from

tennis. UBC’s Mahony said Peliwo surprised him even at a child. “He could win matches from a young age and have an amazing selfbelief,” said the tennis trainer. “It always made me laugh that whenever I trained with him, if I played practice match scenarios with him, he’d always walk onto the court with a smile on his face and say, ‘Coach, I’m going to beat you today.’ It’s not a cockiness. It’s just the self-belief. You don’t see that in everybody.” — Megan Stewart

The Whitecaps and Vancouver Street Soccer League are waging a relentless around-the-clock online campaign to secure $10,000 for the grassroots sports program and recognition for its outgoing president Alan Bates. The professional soccer club nominated Bates for the leaguewide 2012 W.O.R.K.S. Community MVP, a Major League Soccer charitable initiative now in its fifth year that addresses social inequality and promotes health through sport. “He’s really deserving of this community award,” said Whitecaps ambassador and former national team player Carl Valentine. “We want it so much for him because he deserves it and obviously, the money that comes in will enable him to do a lot more for homeless soccer. We’ll be doing everything in our power to make sure that happens.” Ever the team player, Bates recognized it might be his name on the ballot but said the honour is shared. “It’s unfortunate that they had to put one person’s name down because we’re all about being a team of volunteers and a team of street soccer players who work together and that’s the way that we’re approaching this contest,” he said. “We’ve got a huge team of people voting over and over and over and over. It’s fun that way—it’s another team activity that we’re working on together.” Teams from around the league name a candidate who makes a difference in their town. Online voting began last week. The winner claims the cash prize, a chance to see the MLS all-star game in Philadelphia. Since supporters can vote more than once, street soccer players, volunteers and supporters are furiously voting as often as they can sit down at a computer. Valentine has voted, and the street soccer league hosted a voting party Monday afternoon at the W2 Media Lab in Woodward’s after a handful of Whitecaps players joined them for a scrimmage at Oppenheimer Park. On a Facebook page created to drum up support and motivate voters, players joke about launching midnight and morning “attacks” and coordinating their efforts to pick off competitors. “No. 1 and No. 2 are right in front of us,” said one voter. “I can smell them.” The ploys are playful but not in jest since $10,000 is at stake. Out of 19 nominations, Bates jumped from 12th to seventh and, over the weekend, crept into fifth and then fourth. On Tuesday morning, he sat third behind

nominees from the Philadelphia Union and FC Dallas. Voting closes at 2 p.m. Friday, July 13. Like the calm at the centre of a storm, Bates is one of the street soccer league’s primary administrators, its technical director, and coach of the Portland FC men’s team. He is also the league’s president, although he is leaving the volunteer position and the league will hire a part-time executive director. Professionally, he is a psychiatrist. He is appreciative of the Whitecaps and its charitable foundation, both which have contributed time, money, equipment and game tickets to the league. “Sometimes, what I’ve heard some street soccer players say is that it’s nice to feel like you’re someone important,” said Bates. “Just with some of the problems street soccer players run into with poverty, mental illness and addictions, sometimes there are feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness that set in and if you’ve got the Whitecaps to come visit you, you’re not nobody.” His dedication to the city’s marginalized and disenfranchised has created opportunities where none existed before, said Debbie Krull, a goalkeeper who tended net for Team Canada at the Homeless World Cup in Paris last summer. “He is calm and quiet and has endured numerous instances of

extreme violence and character assassinations. And he’s completely calm. Because of that perseverance, the league has grown,” she said, noting the rise of a women’s program and a team called Phoenix. “Not only does he create space for the league, he creates space for each player to share their personal challenges. The fact that men are openly disclosing and making themselves open to him to share, that’s really quite amazing and rare, especially in sport. He’s creating that space where men feel safe and can overcome their challenges. Not just men, women, too. The fact that I have this opportunity to talk to you and express this—even this is one of the outcomes of Alan’s perseverance.” Along with self-control and a wellspring of self-esteem, Virgil Goosehead discovered his latent ball-handling talent after he joined Portland FC. In an email to the Courier, Goosehead wrote, “Coach Alan has given me a new understanding of soccer, how it’s played, rules, and most of all PRIDE!! He has taught me that a ball can change the world, and how to deal with my anger on and off the field. I admire his kindness and passion to help street people.” Through the street soccer league, Goosehead secured housing and now plays for a team he

helped found, the Station Street Express. Along with Krull, he represented Canada at last year’s Homeless World Cup. (Full disclosure: I also volunteer with the league.) “I’m voting for Alan because if it wasn’t for him, a lot of us street soccer players would have never experienced the things we’ve done. Without Street Soccer I wouldn’t have a clue what I’d be doing.” The Whitecaps partnership with the Street Soccer League started about four years ago when the club’s alumni team played the Vancouver Dream Catchers, the inaugural team and the impetus for the league that followed. Valentine played in that early game. He said the changes he’s seen from individuals has been

remarkable. “You get to hear some of the stories and the journeys they’ve had and where they are now. You go back again and you see the transition. Some of the players that have come from that world where they’re just down and out—there’s just nothing for them—and you give them a lift, give them a healthy outlook on life and it just really is incredible.” The Whitecaps ambassador pointed to the source of the league’s growth and its individual and international accomplishments: “I think he’s got everything to do with it—Alan’s passion and his desire to give people another chance at life.” Twitter: @MHStewart
