NORTH Vancouver’s Lauren Wilkinson (fourth from left) celebrates with the rest of Canada’s women’s eight rowing team after racing to a silver-medal showing at the London 2012 Olympic Games. The 22-year-old Wilkinson is an Olympic rookie and the youngest member of the crew.

NV rower snags silver for Canada Women’s eight brings home country’s seventh medal of London Games Andy Prest

NORTH Vancouver rower Lauren Wilkinson scored Olympic silver Thursday, helping the Canadian women’s eight boat to a secondplace showing on Lake Dorney behind a powerhouse United States team.

The Canadians made a late charge in the final to try to reel in the U.S. team, the defending Olympic champs, who are undefeated in international competition since 2005, but came up just short. Though gold was their ultimate goal, the

Canadians were all smiles as they received their silvers medals, mementos that will cap all of the grueling hours of training and pain they put in to pull themselves onto the podium. “You know that feeling you get when you first wake up in the morning and nothing feels real?” Wilkinson said after receiving her medal. “That’s what it feels like now. I know we gave what we had, and we emptied the tank. But it still hasn’t hit this was an Olympic final.” Wilkinson, 22, is the youngest member of the team and one of only two Olympic rookies on the crew. For several of the other Canadian rowers, the win avenged the disappointment of finishing fourth at the 2008 Olympic Games. While many were looking back at demons vanquished from Beijing, Wilkinson was already looking ahead. “It’s an amazing group of women that I’ve had the privilege to row with, and we gave it our all, no regrets,” she said. “Fuel to the fire for 2016!” Wilkinson is the baby of a Lynn Valley

family of rowers. Her father David was set to compete in the 1980 Olympics but never got the chance after Canada joined the boycott of the Moscow Games following the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan. David and wife Susan, herself a national-level rower, moved on from that disappointment to start their own little crew.

First came Jerome and then Michael, and soon Lauren was watching from the shore as her older brothers were training at the Burnaby Lake Rowing Club. It didn’t take Lauren long to talk her way onto her own boat, and her career took off from there. See Rowing page 5

find a voice message from her friend Jan Bailey. “She said, ‘The strangest thing just happened. A fish just fell out of our cedar tree on to the ground,’” said Wilkinson.

Neighbours laud Cap overhaul

‘Village centre’ would reboot area: Residents Brent Richter

Cyclist collision nets probation Jane Seyd

A proposed overhaul of the Lower Capilano neighbourhood is getting an enthusiastic thumbs-up from the residents’ association most affected by it.

The planned overhaul, reported last week, would see a “village centre” appear on what is now a huge vacant lot just west of Capilano Road between Fullerton Avenue and Curling Road. The Larco Investments development would include a cluster of multi-family residential buildings along with commercial space, a new community centre and public plaza with connections to nearby parks. In comments to the North Shore News last week, a spokesman for the Lower Capilano Residents Association expressed skepticism about the plan, suggesting it might worsen traffic in the area and insert a NEWS photo Mike Wakefield community centre in the wrong part of the municipality.

A 23-year-old woman from Coquitlam has been handed a suspended sentence and put on probation for 15 months for hitting a cyclist in North Vancouver last summer. Heather Lynn Weglo was also banned from driving for 12 months after pleading guilty to dangerous driving causing bodily harm in North Vancouver provincial court. The accident happened on Skyline Drive Aug. 10, 2011 just after 6 p.m. Weglo was driving north on the narrow road as a 53-yearold cyclist and two friends were heading south. Weglo hit the cyclist as both rounded a curve in opposite directions. The cyclist landed on the hood of Weglo’s car and fell to the ground. He suffered injuries including a neck fracture and concussion and was hospitalized for four days. Weglo was driving too fast and was on the wrong side of the road at the time of the accident, according to Crown counsel spokesman Neil Mackenzie. There was some evidence that Weglo had been drinking, but no breath test was taken at the scene, he added. Weglo also pleaded guilty to a charge of mischief that resulted from her kicking a police car and causing more than $500 damage when she was arrested. Weglo has no prior criminal record.

Cuts to emergency program draw fire Federal cost reductions could put lives at risk, warn councils

Brent Richter

CUTS to a federal program designed to help keep cities running during a large-scale emergency could be putting the North Shore at risk, local governments say.

The City of North Vancouver, the District of West Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver voted July 23 to write a letter asking Ottawa to restore funding for the Joint Emergency Preparedness Program to its 2009 levels after it was slashed as part of the federal government’s ongoing deficit reduction effort. After funding the JEPP since 1980, Ottawa reduced its budget in 2009 and plans to cut it off entirely as of 2013. The North Shore Emergency Management Office has used the funding to provide up-to-date training, equipment and exercises for the North Shore’s emergency operations centre. In the event of a disaster like an earthquake, flood or landslide, municipal employees, police and firefighters would all function as one service under the direction of the centre until residents were out of danger and municipal governments could get back to focusing on non-emergency services. The effect of the budget cuts for North Shore residents

could be dire, some councillors warned. “I would have thought that, post-(Hurricane) Katrina, there wouldn’t have been this kind of discussion about emergency preparedness,” said District of North Vancouver Coun. Alan Nixon. “I would have thought the federal government and the provincial government would be doing all that’s in their power to ensure that municipalities across this country had emergency preparedness plans, disaster plans, evacuation plans and the necessary equipment.” Without the federal contributions, which totaled $267,000 in the last six years, the NSEMO will have to scale back its planning. Several councillors called this a shortsighted move. “It’s an insurance plan. You don’t need them all the time but when you do need them, wow, they’re an invaluable resource,” said district Coun. Lisa Muri. “This is a pure download. This is the federal government, in my view, evading its responsibility to show leadership around the issue of emergency preparedness” Coun. Doug MacKay-Dunn agreed. “Prevention is a better investment than paying for the consequences of lack of preparation and prevention,” he said. City of North Vancouver Coun. Craig Keating called the decision to cut funding “penny-wise and pound-foolish,” especially as disasters like wildfires, floods and landslides are becoming more common. “The impacts of climate change are coming,” he said. “(The training) will allow us to help us help ourselves.” The North Shore is in good hands when it comes to emergency services, but if the existing plans and equipment are allowed to become obsolete, they won’t be of any help in a

catastrophe, city Coun. Pam Bookham said. “We’ve been reminded recently of the kinds of devastating events that can take place within a community,” she said. “We’re fortunate that we are well prepared but we need to maintain that high level of readiness.” The district expanded the motion to include a call for the federal government to abandon its plans to close the Kitsilano Coast Guard station. At its peak, the federal government was spending $8.47 million per year on the JEPP program. The decision to cut the program was a difficult but necessary one, financially, according to John Weston, Conservative MP for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country. “Taking a national view, these cuts are part of a deficit reduction program that goes coast to coast,” Weston said. “The intent of that program was to get our budget in balance and to make sure that taxpayers’ money isn’t going to interest payments, but to health and education and welfare and national emergency services.” JEPP came under the knife only after the government had reviewed its original objectives and determined that the goal of enhancing local emergency response capacity had been achieved, Weston added. The same cost-cutting strategy applies to the Kits Coast Guard and other services Canada-wide, Weston said. “The whole country is engaged in reining in of expenditures.” Andrew Saxton, Conservative MP for North Vancouver, did not respond to a request for comment.

LYNDA Taylor (left) and Cindy Wilkinson are looking after “Lucky,” a cichlid aquarium fish that fell out of a tree in a friend’s backyard — likely after being dropped by a bird. The women are hoping Lucky’s owner will come forward.

and found the piscine drop-in covered in cedar needles but — incredibly — still alive. It was an unusual looking fish, reddy orange and about 25 centimetres long. Bailey hauled out an old aquarium, filled it with water and put the fish inside. Then she called Wilkinson, who promptly called Lynda Taylor, another friend who knows her fish and has a big koi pond. “I said, ‘There’s a fish that just fell out of a tree,’” said Bailey. Before making any decision about the animal, the friends decided some Internet sleuthing was in order. A quick check showed the mystery fish was probably a cichlid — an aquarium fish native to South and Central America and usually kept in indoor aquariums. Wilkinson and Taylor took it to a local pet store and had its identity as a Midas cichlid confirmed — described online as a “rather robust fish.” What’s still a mystery is how the fish ended up in the tree to begin with. “Maybe someone was cleaning out its tank and left it outside

for a minute,” said Wilkinson. Taylor said it’s also possible the cichlid was put in an outdoor pond for the summer. Taylor’s best guess is an eagle or a heron, seeing a potential meal, snatched it from the water and ended up dropping the fish from its perch. For now, Taylor has set up the cichlid — nicknamed ‘Lucky’— quite comfortably in a small 30-gallon tank with pH-balanced water, plants and a bubbler to aerate his environment. “He’s swimming around and he’s happy,” said Wilkinson. Because Midas cichlids can be aggressive towards other fish, Lucky has the tank to himself. Lucky has also turned from orange to a paler peach colour. Taylor — who already has koi, shubunkins, goldfish and rosy reds — is keeping a close eye on the new arrival. “I’ve saved a lot of fishes. But not a cichlid. And not one that’s fallen out of a tree,” she said. What the Taylor and Wilkinson are really hoping to do is to reunite the fish with its owner. “Who is going to think their fish is alive?” said Wilkinson. “It’s an unusual fish. I’m sure not many people have lost one of these things.”

VIEWPOINT Published by North Shore News a division of LMP Publication Limited Partnership, 100-126 East 15th Street, North Vancouver, B.C. V7L 2P9. Doug Foot, publisher. Canadian publications mail sales product agreement No. 40010186.

Thinking and driving A

FTER a slow, cool start to summer, the season has finally got down to business, with sunny weather predicted for the weekend. Hot days and refreshing drinks go together, like barbecues and coolers. Unfortunately, when the drinks are alcoholic, too many of us still aren’t planning for a safe ride home. The level of responsibility we have started to show around Christmas has yet to translate into those long, lazy summer weekends. Police know this, which is why they step up roadblocks around this time. B.C.’s new laws against drunk driving have been reinstated following court-ordered changes. Those under the impression they can now get off with a slap on the wrist are seriously mistaken. Just ask Karina Stampfli, a North Shore woman nabbed for driving over

the limit who is now championing a public education campaign against impaired driving. As Stampfli learned the hard way — after having her licence suspended for 90 days and being forced to put an expensive interlock device on her car — it isn’t worth the risk. Most people will be unfit to drive — and unfit to make that judgment — long before they reach the stage of obvious drunkenness. Even without the added danger of alcohol-fuelled drivers, the August long weekend is a time to be extra careful on the roads. On a typical B.C. Day weekend, five people are killed, 533 are injured and there are 1,935 collisions on B.C. roads — most of those in the Lower Mainland. That’s nothing to celebrate. So plan ahead to be safe this weekend.

On MLA finances, clean noses all around QUESTION: What is the difference between the B.C. legislature and Ponzi schemes?

Answer: Ponzi fraudsters keep accurate books. So while the records of Ponzi crooks helpfully make police investigations simpler, our legislators collectively haven’t left a clearer paper trail than a kid’s lemonade stand. Aw, that’s mean. But fact is the legislature’s nearly $70 million annual budget is such a colossal mess that AuditorGeneral John Doyle confessed he can’t tell if anyone had a hand in the cookie jar. It is a relief that our North Shore MLAs — all Liberals — have assured me their own books are solid. And it’s a comfort to know an MLA committee was planning to travel to Victoria this week for a meeting concerning the legislature’s arithmetical inadequacies. Hold on. Can we be sure their travel chits are accurate? The Vancouver Sun ran the headline “Auditor-general slams fiscal farce” over thumb-

This Just In

Trevor Lautens nail photos of every MLA, and crisply summed up: “$1.3 billion improperly recorded . . . No documentation for MLA travel expenses . . . $133-million gap between the legislature bank account and financial records . . . No annual financial statements.” Seatless Conservative leader John Cummins demanded Speaker Bill Barisoff, the Liberal responsible for legislature business, resign and his New Democratic Party deputy, Dawn Black, take over. “Especially troubling is the disclosure that Speaker Barisoff


specifically requested the auditor-general to not examine the $119,000 annual constituency office allowance provided to each MLA,” Cummins thundered. Back to the good news. I invited our local MLAs to comment on Doyle’s allegations and asked: “Are you confident that your personal records as MLA in these areas are in proper order?” Naomi Yamamoto (North Vancouver-Lonsdale), minister of advanced education, responded: “It’s disturbing to hear that the accounting process for MLA expenses and legislature operations is not living up to public expectations. I submit receipts for all my travel and constituency expenses. Taxpayers have a right to know how their money is being spent. “I applaud the decision to review processes at the legislative assembly. Under the direction of the new clerk of the house, Craig James, changes have been introduced that will help ensure accountability. “Let us await the actions of the Legislative Assembly

Management Committee to address the concerns outlined by Mr. Doyle. I’m confident that the public interest will be properly served. Anything less is unacceptable.” Commendably, Joan McIntyre (West VancouverSea to Sky) replied almost immediately: “As a former business operator and a longterm member of the Select Standing Committee on Public Accounts, I am surprised and disappointed by the shortcomings. . . . It is particularly surprising since first elected in 2005 I have been compliant by promptly filing required receipts for travel expenses via my legislative assistant in Victoria. I am confident my records should be in order.” Jane Thornthwaite (North Vancouver-Seymour) was also fast on the draw: “I provide receipts for everything including travel expenses. I am confident my office is managed correctly, and I continue to be open and transparent in everything I do on behalf of my constituents.” Ralph Sultan (West Vancouver – Capilano) replied at length. Significant, because

Sultan, former bank economist and Harvard professor, probably knows more about finance than anyone in the legislature. Said Sultan: “I think the auditor-general’s attempt to shine a spotlight upon what has been — up to now — an excessively private world is to be encouraged. Auditor-General Doyle’s findings are an unsettling surprise, and as Mr. (John) Horgan of the New Democratic Party has already confessed, an embarrassment for all MLAs. It happened on our watch, and all must squirm.” Sultan too called Craig James’s appointment as clerk of the house “good news.” That said, Sultan takes exception to “the rather indiscriminate tar brush wielded by Mr. Doyle. MLAs secretly running amok with legislative credit cards? Not true in my experience; the spending has always been there for all to see, on the web site . . . As evidence of the new management style, the legislative comptroller’s office has become very picky and finicky starting about 12 months ago.”

Travel and related expenses? In 2011, Sultan’s totalled $16,159, well within the norm for non-cabinet members, whose expenses ranged from $6,171 (Maurine Karagianis, NDP, Esquimalt-Royal Roads) to $61,532 (John Rustad, Liberal, Nechako Lakes, defensible in his role as chairman of the party’s huge northern caucus). But Sultan says public questioning is reasonable: “It is one thing to walk to work in Victoria, versus (making) transportation connections to get there from the depths of the Columbia River Valley. “But who can explain NDP front-bench star Rob Fleming somehow managing to spend $22,772 getting to work from his home in Victoria each year” — Fleming’s Wikipedia entry states that while on Victoria city council, he gained a reputation for being a “fiscally prudent democratic socialist” — “or Lana Popham, another Victoria-resident NDP star, who manages to spend $21,655 annually getting across town. Hmmm.” Hmmm indeed.

Pipeline spat helps Clark find her feet PICKING fights with other governments can often be a winning strategy for political leaders, but it’s unclear yet whether Premier Christy Clark’s linein-the-sand stance on the Enbridge pipeline will make her party competitive again.

It can be argued she’s finally found an issue — and a position — that resonates with voters in a more positive fashion than anything her government has put forward in the past year. Being perceived as “sticking up for B.C.” against outside interests will always go over well with the public. Alberta Premier Alison Redford’s verbal salvos fired at Clark over the B.C.’s premier’s insistence on getting a bigger slice of the Enbridge pie have played right into Clark’s hands. And Clark’s refusal to engage in talks with other premiers towards creating a national energy policy until her conditions on Enbridge are met strengthens the impression she’s holding fast at the gates, refusing to let any other government dictate terms to her province. Her emerging position on Enbridge also appears to have caught the NDP off-guard and somewhat flatfooted.

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

Clark has been leading the news cycle on an issue that the NDP and its leader Adrian Dix had all to themselves until now (ironically, the last B.C. premier to make such a fuss at the federal level was another Clark — as in Glen). This may be all well and good for the premier on a public-relations basis (the next couple of opinion polls should tell us if that’s the case) but it also masks some serious questions about her government’s position on the controversial pipeline. For example, by insisting on getting more dollars from Alberta and/or Ottawa because B.C. takes all the “risk” of a pipeline or freighter spill suggests that a catastrophic oil spill is actually acceptable, as long as the financial payoff for the province is high enough. One study suggests B.C. will receive $6.7 billion

from the Enbridge deal, spread over 30 years. That’s about eight per cent of the total revenues flowing to government. Let’s say the other governments agreed to give B.C. a lot more money (a highly unlikely scenario in any event) and double this province’s share to almost $15 billion. Is that enough cash to assuage the fears of a spill, either on land or on the coast? Or is perhaps $25 billion the magic figure? Would that make the B.C. government’s conscience rest easy? The other big impression arising from this Clark-versusRedford fight is that they are the two most important people in this debate. They are not; far from it. While it’s important, if not imperative, for the premiers to make clear their positions, the reality is that another kind of government likely has more power than either province when it comes to whether a pipeline is a go or not. That would be the First Nations. Various high court decisions have made it clear that massive industrial development on land claimed by First Nations in B.C. (particularly in rural, remote areas) will not proceed if the First Nations located there do not approve of it, or at the very least do not have their interests and concerns addressed.

And, so far at least, there is considerable First Nations opposition to the Enbridge project. In fact, B.C.’s Aboriginal Relations Minister, Mary Polak, has said she doesn’t know of any First Nations support at all. Enbridge hasn’t consulted with First Nations in any meaningful way, which will not impress any court if a First Nations band takes the company to court to block the pipeline (a very real possibility should the project

get through the review panel process). Nevertheless, for all these questions, Clark has staked out turf on Enbridge that could be more politically advantageous than anything she’s done since she took over the premiership. Redford and even Prime Minister Stephen Harper (who now must be wondering how much political capital he wants to invest in Enbridge) can stomp their feet and wring their hands and complain about

the unfairness of it all, but the fact remains that a premier has to speak to his or her own constituents first. And Clark is doing precisely that. Will it be enough to rebuild her party’s credibility? Probably not, but at the very least the unpopularity of her government may have finally bottomed out.

N. Van librarian done with keeping quiet Educator plans 22 marathons in 22 days to protest Bill 22 Jeremy Shepherd

STARTING Aug. 8, a Canyon Heights elementary librarian is planning to run roughly 22 marathons in 22 days to protest Bill 22 and challenge funding cuts to public education in British Columbia.

NEWS photo Kevin Hill

IAN Cunliffe, a librarian at Canyon Heights elementary, is planning to run more than 1,000 kilometres over three weeks to protest the province’s treatment of teachers.

For the last four months, Ian Cunliffe has been shouldering an eight-kilogram backpack, ignoring the inflammation in his right knee, and racing up Cypress Mountain and through Seymour Park in preparation of what he calls “a war of attrition.” If his body holds up, the former Sherwood Park elementary teacher and ultramarathoner will run from Sparwood, near the Alberta border, to Vancouver. Cunliffe said he’s uncertain he’ll be able to complete his route, which stretches more than 1,000 km, terminating at the SeaBus station down town. Along the way, Cunliffe said he plans to speak with politicians, school board trustees, reporters, and the general public about Bill 22. The bill, tabled in

February, was passed to suspend the teacher’s strike and impose a “cooling-off period” of six months. It also required that any negotiated settlement between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the province involve no increase in spending. “Traditionally, every four years, there’s a kerfuffle with teachers and the government about wages . . . but this is fundamentally different,” Cunliffe said. The prospect of giving teachers a raise is understandably divisive, but Cunliffe said there are other things at issue that should unite the public behind educators. “I think everyone can understand the importance of making sure that the class-

size limits are still in place, and that special needs kids have a guaranteed minimum level of support,” he said. “Once kids enter Grade 4, they can have a class of any size . . . in one room. There are no longer any limits.” The removal of class size limits — also a component of Bill 22 — makes it particularly difficult to find the time to work with special needs students, Cunliffe said. The problems are exacerbated by a lack of resources resulting from the bill’s passage. “There is now no longer any guaranteed minimum levels of funding for special needs kids,” he said. In 2005, 10,942 classrooms had four or more special needs students, according to the BCTF. That figure rose to 11,959 in 2010. But the province has pointed out that the legislation See With page 10

INQUIRING REPORTER AFTER years of training and a fresh injection of government funds, the Canadian Olympic team has set a goal of finishing in the top 12 out of 204 participating nations at the 2012 London Games. By Thursday, Canada was already ranked 11th, having garnered seven medals: two silvers and five bronzes. Although anything can happen in the remaining 10 days of competition, it seems the team’s target may be within reach. But is hardware the best gauge of our country’s performance at the Games? — Brent Richter

Brian Wood North Vancouver It’s not, really. To me, it’s the Winter Olympics that matter for Canada because that’s where we have a shot.

How important is the final Summer Olympics medal count to you?

Leejay Hamidi North Vancouver Not that important. It doesn’t affect my life but I’m not rooting against it or anything.

Colleen McLachlan North Vancouver I think it’s very important. I think it brings Canada to the world’s attention. Some people don’t know where Canada is, you know.

Carla Sorrentino North Vancouver It’s not that important to me. It’s just the fact that our athletes get to go out there and compete (that matters). It’s really hard for us, because I know the funding is really low for Canadian athletes. The medals are the icing on the cake.

Rose Simantiris North Vancouver I think what matters more is that we’re out there, and we’re competing, and we’re showing everyone how good we are. It doesn’t matter what we bring home.

With little prep, epic run will be ‘adventure’ From page 9

came with benefits to educators as well. Under the bill, teachers who oversee more than 30 students in their classroom will receive more money, more paid time to prepare for class, or more training. “It’s aimed at really allowing everybody to deal with the challenges in the classrooms,” said Scott Sutherland, media liaison with the Ministry of Education. “What has been lost in the mix sometimes is the new Learning Improvement Fund, which was part and parcel of Bill 22,” said Sutherland. School districts are set to receive $60 million this fall under the LIF. “The Learning Improvement Fund is kind of tailored for special needs. It will allow districts to hire additional teachers and special education assistants,” said Sutherland . Inherent in the ministry’s plan is the belief that districts are

better suited than the province to judge where money should be spent, he said. “You’re on the ground; you are the ones that should be determining this making the decisions at your local district level,” he said. “There’s no edict from the province on teacher/ librarians. That is left up to the district to ascertain.” In the 2011/12 school year, there were 9,037 full-timeequivalent education assistants in B.C., according to Sutherland. That figure represents a bump of nearly 260 teaching assistants. Cunliffe, however, had a markedly different take on staffing at public schools. “Over the last few years we have laid off hundreds of learning assistance teachers, and I’ve got kids in my classroom who desperately need that service, and they’re either not getting that service or they’re getting an inadequate amount,” he said. Funding cuts have turned school libraries into an “endangered species,” while reducing school counsellors to working in “triage mode,” said Cunliffe.

The librarian is hoping his series of marathons will help put these issues back in front of the public. Speaking to the North Shore News with less than two weeks before heading to Sparwood, Cunliffe compared his marathon series to a purple cow, the sight of which causes people to slow down and take a long look. “Often, the only way you can get people to pause in their daily routine is to do something that’s a little bit outlandish or remarkable,” he said. The teacher once completed the Marathon des Sables, a footrace across the Sahara Desert. “I actually did that 240-km being violently ill,” he said, recalling eating dehydrated food and sleeping in a tent on the desert floor. To complete this marathon, which is more than four times as long, he said he should have spent a year in training. “I only had about four months preparation, which is really quite insufficient, so it’s going to be an adventure,” he said.

■ City of North Vancouver’s second annual free outdoor summer concert series, Concerts in the Square kicks off Saturday, Aug. 4 with headliners Jon and Roy preforming with special guest Shaun Verreault of Wide Mouth Mason. Also performing tomorrow: Krystle Dos Santos, Adam Woodall Band and Tonye Aganaba. The show starts at 5 p.m. in Shipbuilders’ Square at the Shipyards located beside Lonsdale Quay along the City’s waterfront.

Jeremy Shepherd

AROUND the time the day’s last rays of sun are dancing on the darkening waters of Burrard Inlet, Jon and Roy are slated to take the stage at Shipbuilder’s Square next to Lonsdale Quay. The folk duo have released five albums drawing on influences ranging from Bob Dylan to hip-hop to

reggae, but Jon Middleton and Roy Vizer remain in a state of constant transformation. “I think we’re evolving into more of a band and less of a duo,” says Middleton, who provides guitar work and vocals for the group. Perhaps best known for providing grooves for the Victoria band Current Swell, Louis Sadava now lends his bass to Jon and Roy. The group’s backbeat is supplied by Roy Vizer, who’s cooked up a range of rhythms since first meeting Middleton at the University of Victoria. Middleton had become a regular at open mic nights, honing a picking style in which he used his thumb to play a bass line. A fan of hip-hop, in which complex lyrics often centre around a heavy beat, Middleton liked the idea of adding Vizer’s percussion to his guitar. “He was very good at combining the beats with what I was doing,” Middleton says. Much like the commercial where peanut butter collides with chocolate, Middleton says they both sensed they had something together, and soon decided to start

a band. “It was a natural response in terms of how we jelled musically,” he says. While Middleton shared his love of the Grateful Dead with Vizer, and Vizer reciprocated with his appreciation of African music, it was in the Caribbean where they truly bonded. “He was really into Cuban music and reggae, and I was also into the reggae,” Middleton explains. The down-tempo yet danceable rhythm of reggae pervades their newest album, Let It Go, adding a layer of seeming simplicity to Middleton’s intricate guitar work. “There’s something about the groove that’s very hypnotic,” Middleton says of reggae. The hip-hop influence of their early work is not as apparent on the new album. “Deep Steez,” a freestyle, rap-influenced folk jam that kicked off their first album, Sittin’ Back, was 468 words. “Vibrant Scene,” one of the more poetic tracks off Let It Go, needed fewer than 150 words to tell its See Jon page 17

Roma Swing create euphonious sounds Lache Cercel’s ensemble performing at Harmony Arts

■ Lache Cercel and his Roma Swing Ensemble performing at the Harmony Art Festival on the Pacific Arbour Garden Stage Sunday, Aug. 5 at 1 p.m. For complete schedule visit

Jeremy Shepherd

LACHE Cercel, the great Romanian jazz artist, almost had to be a violinist. His father took violin lessons from the man who became Cercel’s grandfather, and a relationship blossomed between the young musician and his teacher’s daughter. Cercel, now 50, first held a violin and bow when he was five years old. The same grandfather who helped his father become a conductor showed the child the violin’s strings, bow, and bridge, encouraging Cercel to memorize the anatomy of the instrument. “He kind of bribed me with candies,” Cercel recalls. “It was introduced in a really nice way.” Preparing for his August 5 afternoon performance on the Pacific Arbour Garden stage, Cercel reflects on the many lessons that shaped his brand of Roma jazz. “When I discovered the violin sound . . . I heard this tremendous velvet, round tone,” he says. “That sound got music into my ears.” Cercel uses words like clear, healthy and warm to describe the violin’s voice. “Everything has to be spotless, clean, everything has to be organized, everything has to be brilliant, See Grappelli page 18

Jon and Roy go for live feel on new disc

story. Much like the music uses a straightforward structure to showcase surprising dexterity, the lyrics tend to use simple language to convey complex emotions. “A lot of the songs on the album have no changes. The whole song is one riff,” Middleton says. The cumulative effect makes the album sound looser than much of their previous work, feeling a like porch jam session caught by microphones. “Musically I think we wanted to go more into a live kind of feel,” Middleton says. “I think we’re at a pretty comfortable place when we made that.” The music is a far cry from Middleton’s high school band, The Cyanide Monks. The punk, metal, indy-rock mash-up makes Middleton chuckle as he reflects on a youth spent oscillating between Nirvana and Metallica. It was a different sound that graced Volkswagen commercials for several months in 2008, as Jon and Roy licensed the song “Another Noon” to the carmaker. The duo has also been featured in surfing and motorbiking movies. While radio has helped their cause, Middleton says finding new ways to get their music to the public has resulted in new fans. Middleton is casual in conversation, excitable only when discussing picking up his first guitar, which happened sometime around Grade 7. “Addicted to it,” he says definitively. Jon and Roy are the rare group to make the transformation from hip hop duo to folk band seem like a natural evolution, and as the sun sets on Lonsdale Quay this Saturday, their fans will have a chance to see how much they’ve changed and how consistent they’ve been.

like a crystal. You have to hear that sound exactly how you look through very clear glass.” For Cercel, playing the violin incorrectly is tantamount to drinking expired milk. “I wasn’t allowed to play any bad notes or any unhealthy sounds,” he says. “Any investment in the wrong side is not good. It’s not good to study and accept a sound that’s not healthy, strong, clean and clear.” Cercel didn’t study violin according to a clock, he played slowly, tuned in to each note, searching for the beautiful sound that accompanies technical precision. “It’s not an easy job, it’s like making an operation on a brain. Violin doesn’t have any guides like the piano or guitar,” he says. Internationally, Romania is well known for gypsy music, which has led to Cercel’s ensemble being mistakenly dubbed “gypsy jazz.” Far from the sorrowful melodies that recount centuries of gypsy oppression, Cercel’s jazz swings from the celebratory to the hypnotic. Cercel’s albums, Rhapsody of Romania and Musica Konkordo, each evoked distinct sounds, with some songs steeped in classical Romanian music and others, like “Egyptian Girl,” combining a multitude of influences to create a distinct sound in which each instrument is heard with a singular clarity. Cercel studied classical music at the Academy of Arts in Bucharest, but his sound changed when he heard Stéphane Grappelli through a short-wave radio at 3 a.m. one morning. With no access to Western CDs, records, or tapes, Cercel convinced a pilot to bring him a Grappelli tape, and a few months after the initial radio broadcast, the pilot obliged. “I got in love with his music. I said, ‘This is great, he’s something else besides just playing classical,” Cercel recalls. Following his parents’ split, Cercel stayed with his father, who was performing for tourists at hotels. Cercel soon became his father’s apprentice, playing for vacationers from France, Germany, and North America. “I kind of realized a total new life. I said, ‘Wow, this is how to live. Somewhere in the western world, you have more freedom.’ And I decided to do this for my freedom of creation and liberty.” Shortly after capturing the Artist of the People award in Romania in 1986, Cercel first arrived in Canada at the age of 26. “After 2002 I decided to refresh my mind and also experience how people study here in North America,” he says on his decision to enroll at Vancouver Community College. During most of Cercel’s early life, Romania was under the leadership of the country’s communist party, led by Nicolae Ceausescu. The political climate impacted musical instruction, according to Cercel, who says his studies in Bucharest were weighted toward music and composers that resonated with communist teachings. “Studying here was a great challenge for me,” Cercel says. “Now, I understand this life, which is more relaxed here in North America and people don’t rush.” Cercel says he attempts to combine both teaching techniques when playing, but perhaps the largest change in his music stems from his maturity, and from the sorrow, happiness, love, and loss that are part of growing old. “All these changing in your life and daily emotions and moments . . . they change your interpretation and your way of viewing the sound, especially in a violin.” Presently, Cercel’s playing is focused on creating space and infusing the music with a sense of breathing. “My best time is when I perform, because then I am in control,” he says. On stage, Cercel’s playing challenges his ensemble to match his dexterity and musicality. “I know I’m going to ask them a lot through my sound,” he says. Between regular gigs on Main Street and prepping for his third album, Cercel studies the history of music, from the improvisation of Grappelli to Johanes Brahm’s decision to write symphonies in G minor. While his tastes and influences seem diverse, Cercel sees music as something singular. “Changes in your life, which is basically sorrow, happiness, tragedy, losing your parents, love of your wife . . . do affect you a lot in playing,” he says. “Everything is music in the end.”

Misguided 360 loses all sense of balance ■ 360. Directed by Fernando Meirelles. Starring Rachel Weisz, Lucia Siposova, Ben Foster, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins. Rating: 6 (out of 10)

Julie Crawford Contributing Writer

IT’S all about forks in the road according to one of the characters in Fernando Meirelles’ 360.

But despite taking us on a cross-continental, meandering journey — depositing us back where we started, as the title suggests — we don’t get more than a passing glimpse into the lives of our characters as we speed by. The structure of the film offers characters and stories linked like those paper chain dolls: one character meets another, and we move into their life story, and so on. It’s an interesting conceit that speaks to how our lives are all somehow interconnected, but it doesn’t say much else of substance. That will surprise fans of the film’s writer, Peter Morgan. Morgan penned Frost/Nixon, creating a more complex drama without his characters even leaving the room, let alone hopping around the continent. It will also disappoint fans of Meirelles’ previous works, City of God and The Constant Gardener, both of which created memorable characters dealing with desperate situations in foreign lands. (Meirelles and actor Rachel Weisz worked together in The Constant Gardener where she won Best Supporting Actress for her performance.) There are dire situations in 360, to be sure. The film opens with Mirkha (Lucia

Siposova) posing for an online escort website in Vienna. She is escorted by her disapproving sister Anna (Gabriela Marcinkova), who waits outside while Mirka conducts business, and then accompanies her back to the family flat in Bratislava. First time out, Mirkha is stood up by an Englishman on business (Jude Law) who is interrupted by boorish comrades and a call from his young daughter, pleading for a puppy. After the aborted encounter, he heads home to his wife (Weisz) who is trying — not very hard — to end her affair with a 25-yearold Brazilian photographer (Juliano Cazarre). His indiscretion piques his longtime girlfriend (Maria Flor), who flies back home to Brazil seated beside an old man (Anthony Hopkins), who is heading to the U.S. to ID the body of a young woman who may be his daughter, long since missing. Then, jarringly, there’s a shift to Colorado, and the movie glides from social drama to thriller, with a newly released prisoner named Tyler (Ben Foster) and bad-girl decisions aplenty. (Don’t invite strange men to your hotel room! Didn’t your mother teach you anything?) These are not all of the interconnected subplots in 360, just the most prominent. Others, such as a Parisian dentist’s unspoken feelings for his married hygienist (Jamel Debbouze, Dinara Drukarova), are given only cursory consideration. It’s a shame, because this is one of the film’s most poignant vignettes. “What’s the purpose in life, if not to be a good man?” asks the dentist’s imam. A good mantra for the many characters wrestling with infidelity and its fallout.

RACHEL Weisz and Jude Law are featured as part of an ensemble cast in Fernando Meirelles’ 360. It’s all angst and angles, guilty looks reflected in mirrors and through camera lenses. The characters chat in German, French, Russian and English, but never really come to any sort of revelation. Anna, and her interaction with a Russian gangster’s henchman (Vladimir Vdovichenkov), comes closest. Meirelles’ 360 is a star-studded but ultimately soulless sojourn that reveals more about the struggles within present-day EU than of the citizens themselves.

Fassbinder’s is a cinema, and a life, of staggering extremes, stunning productivity, unparalleled accomplishment. He was both wunderkind and enfant terrible of the New German Cinema, and perhaps its leading luminary. Certainly, with Werner Herzog and Wim Wenders, a part of its great triumvirate. Many place Fassbinder at the peak of an even higher summit: the most important filmmaker of the postwar period since Godard.

A passion for jazz ■ Jazz Body and Soul by Bob Willoughby, Evans Mitchell Books, 192 pages, $43. Bob Willoughby is well known for his photographs of movie stars that he shot throughout the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. None of those celebrities are in this book. Instead we are provided with a look at Willoughby’s passion for jazz and a virtual who’s who collection of jazz icons. Willoughby died in 2009 and this project was produced by his son, Christopher, drawing from his father’s notes and archived images. In the early ’50s Willoughby photographed performances in many of the

small jazz clubs around Los Angeles. Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Lionel Hampton, Dave Brubeck and many more legendary figures are shown here in their early days. Photographing under difficult lighting conditions, Willoughby captured the energy and passion of these artists in his stunning black and white pictures. Many of the images are accompanied by his remarks about the artist or the venue and what it was like to be there. Complimenting the stage photographs are a broad selection of photos taken back stage or in studios where Willoughby’s access to these musicians resulted in

outstanding portraits. Starting in the ’50s this collection draws on Willoughby’s photographs right through into the ’90s, when well into his seventies, he was still taking remarkable pictures of jazz performances. — Terry Peters

He then worked his way up in the automobile industry and eventually worked for Arrow Transfer Co Ltd, for many years, managing the Mining Department installing heavy equipment in mines around BC and the Yukon. Bert met Jacqueline Mary Smith in 1943 from their mutual love for the outdoors, hiking and skiing. They were married on November 10th, 1946. They built a home in West Vancouver in 1958 and raised three children. They maintained a cabin on Hollyburn Mountain, a cabin on the north arm of Quesnel Lake and a cabin in Pender Harbour. Life was full of recreation, hard work, family and friends. Bert leaves behind three children, Katherine Nancy Baker (Carl), Patricia Anne Baker (Peter) and Thomas Jeffreys Baker (Karen) as well as eight grandchildren, Charlotte Hinkson (Tim), Jeremy Baker (Tara), Erica Williamson (Stuart), Elizabeth Hubert, Simon Williamson, Kyle Baker, Casey Baker, Chelsie Baker and one great grandchild Audrey Hinkson. Bert was predeceased by Jacqueline Mary Baker who died on February 18th, 1999. There will be a celebration of Bert Bakers life on BC Day, August 6th, 2012 from 2 - 4pm at his home. The family invites all friends and neighbours to come and celebrate. Any donations in honour of Bert’s life can be sent to the Hollyburn Mountain Society.

2013 Cadillac ATS

ATS a new kind of Cadillac

Grinding Gears

Brendan McAleer

WHAT’S a Cadillac? Well, let me tell you what one used to be. Essentially, “the standard of the world” used to mean a vehicle as large as the Cutty Sark with the masts sawed off, with acres of chrome and fins like a Pan-Am 747. And fuel economy like a Pan-Am 747. They were glorious machines, unapologetically vast and sumptuous, royal barges for the likes of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack. Cock your fedora, spark up a Pall Mall and hit the open photo Brendan McAleer road with your best gal and her four nicest mink coats.

High fun-to-drive factor for quick, agile ATS From page 41

THE Cadillac User Experience system works in much the same way as an iPad with large, app-like icons.

inverse sound-waves, the stereo can eliminate much of the background road noise — all without added weight. Performance With reduced sound deadening, lightweight structural materials, and an engineering program that celebrated every gram saved, the ATS tips the scales starting at a little more than 1,500 kilograms. In an applesto-apples comparison with the stated arch-nemesis BMW 3-series, the ATS has a slight weight advantage at each level — and that weight has a perfect 50:50 distribution. There’s a basic fourcylinder option ($35,195) available for penny-pinchers, photo General Motors and a range-topping 321 horsepower V-6 ($43,935) WITH sharp creases and a blocky design, the ATS is unmistakably a Cadillac.

ATS has a chance to challenge the traditional class leaders From page 42

Wander across the line and the ATS will pick up on your veering using a front mounted camera and warn the driver, using a seat-based buzzer so as not to embarrass you in front of your passenger. The collision-warning alert can be similarly discreet, and will help you stop in seconds if someone in front of you slows suddenly. Official fuel economy ratings are 9.2 litres/100 kilometres for city and 6.0 l/100 km highway for the base four-cylinder — figures for the V-6 and turbo-charged models are still forthcoming.

please Frank Sinatra, but it’s sure a car that can sing on a twisty road. Competitors BMW 3-Series ($44,300) It’s been the series benchmark since the 1980s, blending luxury and sporty driving in a cocktail that’s been hard for other marques to beat. The latest iteration is larger and smoother than ever, and boasts a creamy 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine in place of the faithful straight-six. It’s still a delight to drive, and the eight-speed transmission will have the Bimmer pipping the Caddy on fuel economy. Everywhere else though, it’s a pretty tight dogfight. Audi A4 ($37,800) Audi’s built their reputation on their Quattro All-wheel drive and all but their basic sedan come soequipped. As such, you might not expect them to have the sporting élan of the BMW and (now) Cadillac. Even so, an A4 is a lovely car to drive, with plenty of

grunt from its 2.0-litre turbo (now the only engine option). Personally, I bemoan the discontinuation of the Avant (wagon) version, but the A4 sedan is still a must on any mid-size luxury shopper’s list, and boasts fuel economy among the 2.0-litre crowd. WITH high quality trims and a range of available leather colours, the interior of the ATS is on par with the big players like BMW and Audi.
