Man set on fire during drunken argument Jen St. Denis jstdenis@nsnews.com

A North Vancouver man is in hospital in a medically induced coma after he was doused with camp fuel and set on fire during an argument with another man over the weekend.

Groom with a view THE fit and the fast took part in this year’s Warrior Dash on Mount Seymour, including Dino Piovesan and Tara Leduc, who met in a previous race and plan to tie the knot. The couple used the 5.3 kilometre run and muddy obstacle course to test the athletic performance of tux and gown Aug. 4.

The two men got into an altercation at about 4 p.m. Saturday, following an all-day drinking session at a homeless camp near the 700-block of Old Lillooet Road, according to police. As the argument escalated, one of the men, a 34-year-old North Vancouver resident, allegedly poured camp fuel on the other and set him alight. The 56-year-old victim suffered burns to 50 per cent of his body. Two other men witnessed the incident, and one of them used a cellphone to call for help. Paramedics and fire crews were first on the scene and rushed the victim to Lions Gate Hospital in “an extreme amount of pain,” according to Cpl.

$90K oil tank bill sparks warning

Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

WHEN Susanne Carrillo sold her North Vancouver home in June, she wound up with a nightmarish parting gift — a $90,000 bill for remediating soil contaminated by a leaky oil tank she didn’t even know she had. Carrillo is now warning her former neighbours to find out if they have one of the thousands of “ticking time bombs,” that remain buried under North Shore yards — and calling on the province to

help out others who find themselves in her shoes. Despite twice hiring contractors to search her property for a tank at the request of prospective buyers, it wasn’t until her final home inspection that Carrillo and her partner learned about the corroded container, which had been leaking oil since a previous owner converted to natural gas in 1981. In order to complete the sale, the unlucky homeowners were on

the hook for the cost. Since it was a lack of government foresight that allowed for leaky oil tanks, government should have a hand in mitigating the costs, Carrillo argues. “They gave out permits for these oil tanks; they even allowed people to bury them, but they were never decommissioned properly. What did they do instead?. . . They just pointed the finger at the present owner and said: ‘That person has to be responsible,’” said Carrillo. “It goes right back to the way this thing was managed. People say: ‘Should it be the taxpayers paying for this? I say yes,

4-day search finds woman safe

N. Shore team rescues victim near Sasamat

North Van bear burglar faces death sentence Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A North Vancouver black bear is likely facing a death sentence after it wandered into a home Friday night.

WHEN a missing special-needs woman was found after four days alone in the forest near Sasamat Lake “she looked like a frightened little fawn” emerging from a nest of ferns, said rescuer Connie Deboer.

For Deboer, a five-year member of North Shore Rescue, the moment when 21-year-old Joy Zhang stood up in the forest was a huge moment of relief. “I said: ’I’m your friend. I’m going to take you home to your umma and appa.’” Deboer was among several members of the North Shore photo Ric Ernst, PNG organization who, with other search teams, spent four CONNIE Deboer of North Shore Rescue found 21-year-old Joy Zhang, a developmentally-challenged woman, days combing the bush near on Sunday after four days of searching near Sasamat Lake. Sasamat on the weekend, Deboer, whose own daughter is 24, said putting herself in the position of looking for the missing woman. The night before she found Zhang, Deboer said she woke up with the sudden Zhang’s parents is one of the things that drove her to search through 14-hour thought that she should look up the Korean words for “mother” and “father” days. “It motivates you to carry on,” she said. “It’s rescues like this that really get in case it helped in the search. Zhang was on a field trip with a special education program on Thursday you through the tough ones.” The long weekend was also busy for North Shore Rescue closer to home. when she and a friend broke off from the group. The friend — who also has Two people were rescued from the Grouse Grind, where large numbers of developmental challenges — was found later Thursday evening. But finding Zhang — who has the mental capacity of someone half her age visitors made the hike up the steep trail — many of them ill prepared. On Friday night around 10:30 p.m., rescuers came to the aid of a 34-year— was more difficult. Searching for a child, or an adult who has developmental challenges, is an old woman who had collapsed with severe dehydration just below the threeespecially tough task, because they often do not respond to searchers’ calls, said quarter mark. On Monday, rescuers assisted a man in his 40s who had a seizure around Deboer. “You have to think like they do,” she said. Instead of calling out loudly and assertively — which might cause a child the same point in the trail — likely due to a medical condition made worse by or autistic adult to hide — Deboer said she called out to Zhang in a very soft dehydration.

She was doing that on Sunday, as part of a five-person team traversing a steep up the Grind should drink a litre of water before starting and carry a minimum of one litre of water per person. forested slope, when “I heard this tiny little response, ‘I’m over here.’” Jones said too many people have been heading up in the heat with inadequate Using the same singsong tone, Deboer convinced Zhang to stand up and let water, wearing flip-flops and generally not well prepared. herself be seen. Rescuers were also called out Thursday, when two teens from Germany who When she reached the young woman, Deboer found her scratched and were part of an international Scouting troop got separated from their group on dehydrated but basically unhurt. “It’s kind of scary in the jungle,’” Zhang told her rescuer as they waited for the Baden Powell Trail. Luckily, the teens made it to a ranger station and were reunited with the additional help to arrive. group before a full-scale search was launched. “I said, ‘I know. It can be.”

Tony Webb, chairman of the North Shore Black Bear Network, was taking an evening stroll in their Princess Park neighbourhood when his wife stopped to inspect a rug that had been left out as a giveaway by a neighbour. “She went up, knocked on the door and a chap answered it,” Webb recalled. After exchanging a few words, the conversation took a turn. “He went and turned around, and he said: ‘Oh! There’s a bear in the house!’” The man fled the home and the bear left through an open window. B.C. conservation officers attended the scene and installed a trap on Queens Road near the park. The bear was likely a regular in the neighbourhood, according to Webb. “He’s been into a bit of garbage in the area, I think,” Webb said. The animal was not aggressive, and had a tendency to retreat from humans, according to Webb, who lamented the likelihood of the bear’s demise. “It didn’t break in; it walked in. They just follow their nose, and this person had his backdoor open,” he said. Gaining entry into a home will probably lower the chances of conservation officers relocating the bear, Webb said. “Conservation officers say it’s crossed the line, and it’ll be killed, I’m afraid,” he said.

absolutely. That’s what taxes are for.” The only way to recoup any of the expense is to take previous owners to court, but that isn’t a practical solution for most people, she said. “If the oil tank didn’t break your neck financially, the lawyers will,” said Carrillo. Ironically, her home was once featured on a CBC news segment in which she proudly showed off her pesticide-free, organic gardens, just above the toxic sludge. In addition to chipping in for some of the clean up costs, Carrillo wants governments to investigate newer and cheaper remediation methods, and to put better regulations on the oil tank removal business. But homeowners aren’t powerless in the face of the problem, said West Coast Realty agent Robert Jennings, who frequently deals with West Vancouver clients who don’t want the expense or trouble of removing the old tanks. The best way to avoid Carrillo’s experience is to be proactive with tanks now, he said. There are no local bylaws requiring the removal of tanks, but banks and insurance companies won’t finance or insure a home until the seller can prove the soil is clean and that no tank exists on

the property, he said. The longer they are left in, the higher the risk that oil will leak, contaminate nearby soil, or run downhill to neighbouring properties or streams, which results in an immediate $25,000 fine from Fisheries and Oceans Canada, said Jennings. Under provincial environmental law, any previous owner of the land (or real estate agent who facilitated the sale) can be named in a lawsuit, he said. “Do we want this headache? I don’t think so,” said Jennings. “Let’s just be done with it. Get the damned tank out.” According to the West Vancouver Fire and Rescue, there are still about 4,000 tanks buried in that community. Those tempted to cheat and remove the tank quietly should be cautioned: Inspections must be carried about by certified engineers, and the fire department must sign off every permit in order to prove the job is done. “Even if the tank has been removed by dark of night, there is a stop-gap,” said West Vancouver division fire chief Martin Ernst. “If you think it costs a lot doing it up front, try going for the audit factor later. It always costs more later. If you want to sell your house, and you want the purchaser to be confident and the lender to be confident and

the insurer to be confident, you (want to) do it the right way the first time.” The first step is contacting a certified engineer, which West Vancouver Fire and Rescue can facilitate for anyone on the North Shore, Ernst said. The City of North Vancouver has a similar program, while the District of North Vancouver has a less stringent approach, allowing owners to self-report when their tanks have been removed. Neither community knows how many tanks are buried inside their boundaries, but the city estimates it could have as many as 1,500, and the district believes it could have thousands. NaomiYamamoto,MLAforNorthVancouverLonsdale, met with Carrillo to discuss the problem but, she said, there is no obvious solution. “Realistically, the principle (that) the polluter pays isn’t necessarily applicable for residential sites, when it could be several owners past,” said Yamamoto. “Even if they are still alive, I believe they didn’t do anything wrong. The standards have just changed.” Although Carrillo has since left the province, Yamamoto plans to pursue the matter with Ministry of Environment staff. “I just want to make sure we’re looking at all the options,” she said.

Tiny scratch ends equestrian’s medal bid

‘Sensitivity’ on horse’s leg disqualifies N. Van jumper Andy Prest aprest@nsnews.com

NORTH Vancouver’s Tiffany Foster had her first Olympic experience come to a crushing end when her horse Victor was disqualified from the equestrian jumping event due to a cut on its left front leg. On Sunday morning, shortly before Foster was to compete in the team jumping event, officials conducting a random test discovered a hypersensitivity in the horse’s leg, just above the hoof. The sensitivity showed up in a tiny scratch during a thermological exam, which uses highly detailed infrared images. Victor was deemed unfit to compete — hypersensitivity can be an advantage in jumping — and Foster’s Olympic debut was over. “What happened today was devastating to me,’’ Foster said while sobbing in an emotional press conferences held after the decision was announced. “I understand why this rule is in place, and why they look for hypersensitivity in horses, but I would never jeopardize the welfare of my horse. I feel bad for my team, and I am disappointed that this is how my first

RCMP. The suspect had fled by the time police arrived, but investigators found and arrested himwithin24hoursoftheattack. The RCMP are recommending a charge of attempted murder. Police found a tent and makeshift camp near where the

Olympic Games will end.” Members of the Canadian team were furious with the decision. “It’s insane. . . . A joke,” said Eric Lamaze, the 2008 Olympic champion who employs Foster as head trainer at his Torrey Pines Stables in Ontario and who has helped her reach this level in the show jumping world. The official ruling stated there was “no accusation of malpractice, but the horse has been deemed unfit to compete by the Grand Jury.” An appeal was launched but the decision was not overturned. “It’s a girl’s Olympic dream,” said Torchy Millar, Canada’s chef d’equipe. “It’s an FEI rule to protect the welfare of the horse. It makes no allowance for just normal everyday procedure. . . . This is like getting a scratch on your finger and the referee saying you’re unfit for competition. That’s the equivalent. Every rule needs to be applied with a sense of balance, perspective and common sense. To me, and compatriots from other teams, this seems to lack any balance at all.” The Canadians, fielding only three riders instead of the usual four due to the disqualification, went on to finish fifth in the team competition. With files from Postmedia Olympic Team NORTH Vancouver’s Tiffany Foster guides her horse Victor during a recent competition. Foster was disqualified from the Olympic jumping event Sunday.

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.

Buried bombs B

ENEATH the surface of thousands of North Shore back yards, a ticking time bomb lurks. And as increasing numbers of unlucky homeowners are discovering, the collateral damage from buried oil tanks can be financially devastating. Once upon a time, burying tanks that contained home heating oil underground was perfectly acceptable. They were out of sight and largely out of mind. But as decades passed, many of the old tanks fell into disuse. They remained underground, corroding. Homeowners today are reaping that unfortunate harvest. Some owners have been unaware an oil tank existed on their property; others have been led to believe that the tank was dug up, only to find out that is not the case.

The cost of remediation is often staggering. The costs of court cases that follow are also stratospheric and take years to resolve. Taxpayers can’t help homeowners with every challenge they face, but given the scale of this problem, it makes sense for the province to step in. The original decisions to bury the tank were in keeping with the standards of the day. The province updated those standards, and some people are bearing a ruinous burden for those changes. Few can pay for a clean up that can cost $100,000 or more, so many ignore the problem or try to solve it illegally. Only if the government chips in will this issue be resolved quickly and for good. The longer the tanks are in the ground, the more we’ll all end up paying later.

Squandering in the square

Dear Editor: Re: Concerts in the square and champagne in our bathwater. When the first Concerts in the Square was introduced, I was appalled at the $100,000 price tag that was attached. I was told by Larry Orr, the City of North Vancouver’s manager of lands and business services, that it was a one-time cost, because the producers did not have time to get funds from sponsors. I was therefore surprised to see the city had handed out another $100,000 to the same company, Donnelly & Associates, this time around. In correspondence dated July 10, it was confirmed Donnelly had only

managed to raise $10,000 in cash, leaving taxpayers to shell out $90,000. Why did this happen? Why didn’t the city limit its contribution to $25,000, which is what it gave to the Lower Lonsdale Business Association for the very successful Party at the Pier? Why is there such extravagance at the pier at all, when there is already entertainment taking place at Lonsdale Quay and in Waterfront Park? In fact, the whole North Shore has events from the Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver to the concerts in various parts of the District of North Vancouver. Now they say they want to move Presentation House Theatre down to

the waterfront. If PHT cannot succeed in a neighbourhood with at least 2,000 people within walking distance why would it survive at the new location? Sadly, live theatre is a dying art — look at the Vancouver Playhouse. There are many volunteer theatre groups that could fill the gap. When it comes to the “arts,” the city seems to have a bottomless wallet. It is time its finances were managed in the same way most of us have to manage our own personal budgets: with prudence and responsibility. Sue Lakes Cook North Vancouver

City’s Shipyard Sal enchants Salmon-Armers

Dear Editor: My husband and I were recently visiting the Lower Mainland, and instead of rushing to the Horseshoe Bay or Langdale ferry, we decided to explore North Vancouver. We really enjoyed the Lonsdale Quay and there picked up a copy of North Shore News. In it we saw an article about the shipyards, and took the 1:30 p.m. tour. We learned a lot about the history of Canadian ships built during the Second World War and the enormous role played by

female shipyard workers. The stroll around the yard was very enjoyable, and from “Shipyard Sal” we received a walking tour map that included the North Vancouver museum, which we subsequently visited. It was very quaint. Along with our hike through Lynn Canyon, we fell in love with North Vancouver and will definitely be back. Julie Stier Salmon Arm

Tree bylaw helps grow deadly green menace

Dear Editor: Having lived on the North Shore for more than three quarters of a century, and having kept a close eye on the forest cover for all of that time, I would like to comment on the statements regarding trees by the councillors of the District of North Vancouver (DNV Considers Ban on Cutting Big Trees, July 18, North Shore News). Most of the trees under discussion are the native Douglas fir, red cedar and hemlock. Growing naturally in the original forest cover they could reach a height of 50 metres and diameter of up to two metres. Depending on conditions, this could take as long as 600 years. The forest cover was complete over all the landscape, meaning the whole forest protected itself from blow-down. Almost all the trees in the district are second growth; very few are more than 100 years old. Because they have had favorable conditions — no competition, plenty of water and sunshine, and plenty of lawn fertilizer — their growth rate is phenomenal: for fir and hemlock 15 times the rate of the wild tree, for the red cedar, up to 25 times. The lower part of the British Properties was clear cut before 1938. It now boasts trees big enough to produce saw logs for the mill. The concept behind the proposed bylaw is the reverse of what is needed; when a tree on private or district property reaches a diameter of 75 centimeters, it must come down. To leave it standing, usually alone and top heavy, with its roots constricted by driveway, rock wall or house foundation, is to ask for death and destruction when, as is inevitable, it falls to the ground. Watch for the next major storm: It will be a killer and we will know where to place the blame. James R. Thomson West Vancouver

In Robinson case, a collision of principles

“As an experienced police officer specifically trained in the area of impaired driving, Robinson knew that the statement that he had two shots of vodka without stating a specific amount would disable police from extrapolating backwards to determine his level of impairment when driving.” The Hon. Madam Justice Dillon July 27, 2012

DID B.C. Supreme Court Judge Janice Dillon go too far when she bent over backwards to hand disgraced RCMP Cpl. Benjamin Montgomery Robinson a lenient punishment for his crimes?

Dillon sentenced Robinson to a 12-month conditional term for obstruction of justice in connection with a collision that killed Delta motorcyclist Orion Hutchinson in October, 2008. In her reasons, Dillon noted that while Robinson’s obstruction was “deliberate and calculated,” it was “his first offence.” She also took into account his aboriginal heritage. Strictly speaking, Dillon is correct in saying this was Robinson’s first offence. Her March 23, 2012 decision was indeed the first time the courts had had an opportunity to declare him guilty of anything, even though his impaired driving may well have been the sole cause of the crash. Meanwhile, he and the three RCMP officers he was supervising are still facing perjury charges for their

Elizabeth James alleged false testimony at the Braidwood inquiry into the five-times-tasered death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver Airport on Oct. 14, 2007. They have not been found guilty of a crime, however, meaning Dillon couldn’t take these incidents into account. The question of aboriginal heritage is more complex. It has been used legitimately in the past to mitigate against harsh sentencing, but this case is different in many ways from those precedents. Having read Dillon’s ninepage document several times, I still cannot reconcile my lack of sympathy for the Robinson decision with my completely different reaction to the 18month conditional sentence given to Del Louie for the injuries he inflicted on Coast Mountain bus driver Charles Dixon. Both perpetrators are aboriginal; both lacked any immediate or sincere concern for their victims and both were significantly affected by their

background of alcohol use and abuse for which both must undergo treatment. So why can I agree with the Louie decision and yet criticize Dillon’s stay-at-home-unlessyou-have-somewhere-to-go sentence? Perhaps because I haven’t heard anyone say that Robinson was born with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and because the man knew exactly what he was doing when he fled the accident scene to go home for two shots of vodka. My concerns were confirmed by Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs president Stewart Phillip in our conversation last week: “As an RCMP officer, he swore to uphold the law and protect the public,” he began. “I don’t agree with the judge’s decision to use Robinson’s aboriginal culture

and the Supreme Court of Canada Gladue precedent as a reason to allow him to avoid jail time for what he did,” said Phillip. He’s right. I don’t agree either because although the Supreme Court supported the lower court’s decision to take alcoholism and an abusive background into account in the sentencing of B.C. aboriginal Jamie Tanis Gladue for manslaughter, the court specifically noted in March 2012: “These matters, on their own, do not necessarily justify a different sentence for aboriginal offenders.” Robinson’s case is also markedly different from that of Leanne Moorman, who was charged in relation to her involvement in the September, 2008 hit-and-run death of 64year old Dennis Bird, a long-

a

time worker with Vancouver’s Native Housing Society. Like Robinson, she had attended a party before the event and was suspected of being impaired by drugs and/or alcohol at the time of the accident. She, too, left the scene before police arrived, possibly for the same reason — to thwart justice. But unlike Robinson, Moorman did not have RCMP counselling and support services available for her addictions. Charged with dangerous driving causing death, she pled guilty on all counts, showed obvious remorse for her actions and unlike Robinson received a 15month jail sentence, a further two years of probation and is subject to a five-year driving ban. So in Robinson’s case,

when the maximum sentence for obstruction of justice is 10 years — let alone his obstruction was premeditated — why did the Crown ask for a jail sentence of only “three to nine months, or a conditional sentence of 12 to 18 months”? And why would Dillon opt to sentence him so lightly? When I first heard Dillon’s decision, my immediate response was, “I sure hope the Crown will appeal.” But even that would be a faint hope for justice, because an appeal must be based on a judge’s errors in law, not on community reaction or the opinion of the victims’ family that the sentence was a travesty of justice. No wonder Phillip believes the Crown and Dillon’s penalty put the Gladue principle at risk. rimco@shaw.ca

Park Royal to gain 20 stores

New retailers near Village part of larger planned redevelopment Jen St. Denis jstdenis@nsnews.com

WEST Vancouver’s sprawling Park Royal shopping centre is about to get even bigger.

The Marine Drive mall has announced it will be adding 20 more retail shops to the Village at Park Royal at the western end of its property. “Our customers have spoken loud and clear that they enjoy that type of open air environ-

a release. Although the work has put 600 parking stalls out of commission for the time being, there will be a net gain of 300 spaces once the expansion is finished, as two more levels will be added to the existing parking structure east of the Village site. In the coming weeks, West Vancouverites can expect to see two large cranes going up as work on the parkade begins. The current expansion is all happening on land owned by the Squamish Nation, which has already signed off on the project. The mall also wants to build two condo towers on a smaller piece of property that falls under

ment,” said Rick Amantea, vice president of Park Royal. The expansion, which is part of an already-announced redevelopment of the mall’s south side, will attract “the new wave of tier one retailers,” he added. “We needed to create the right space for them to join Park Royal.” The redesign aims to make the space more pedestrianfriendly, with tree-lined streets, public art displays and public gathering places, according to

the jurisdiction of the District of West Vancouver. That part of the plan will go back to council this fall, said Amantea. Changes to nearby Marine Drive are also in progress. This month, crews will be removing one of the mall overpasses and replacing it with an at-grade intersection, a plan that has drawn the ire of some residents who believe it will add more traffic to the already busy road. New turn lanes, bus pullouts, sidewalks and streetlights, bike paths and parking lot improvements will also be added in the fall.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to HOME & GARDEN

NEWS photo Kevin Hill

NORTH Vancouver’s Quincy and Tovah Paglaro, with their kids Asher, Bergandy and Weston, take a break from harvesting vegetables in their backyard garden. The children are involved in food production, from growing and harvesting to menu planning and meal preparation.

HOME IDEAS Barb Lunter creates a glittery floral display. page 17

Edible garden is a family affair Jen St. Denis

jstdenis@nsnews.com

TOVAH Paglaro’s youngest son is still just a baby, but he’s already got a green thumb. Weston, 1, joins his big sister Bergandy, 4, and brother Asher, 7, in helping to grow the family’s large backyard garden in Lynn Valley. The kids also help with cooking the family meals. “(Weston) gets in the way, but we still call it helping,” said Paglaro. Not only do the kids have the run of the garden, they take responsibility for their own little patch. “Last year Asher had his own tomato plants and this year Bergandy has her own spinach plot,” said Paglaro. “They each get their own area.” With a fairy garden, a snail house and unusual plants (rainbow carrots, anyone?) the garden is a delicious place to explore. But it’s not all fun and games. Paglaro also

wants to teach her kids that growing food takes time and commitment. “There are lots of times when the kids say ‘Hey, let’s do something else,’ and I say ‘Well, if we don’t do this then the food’s not going to grow and we don’t have food.’ ” The family is committed to buying organic produce and dairy, but going all-natural and pesticide-free takes a big bite out of their grocery budget. Paglaro finds that she can offset that cost by eating from the garden through the summer and early fall, as well as canning and freezing the backyard bounty. Other tricks also help: she buys items like meat and chickpeas in bulk, and cooks from scratch as much as possible. “It costs 80 cents to make bread,” she pointed out, compared to the $4-$6 you might spend in the grocery store. The family is just as busy as any other suburban clan. Both parents work: Paglaro works part time as a media producer and blogger; her husband, Quincy, is a camera

operator in the film industry. Paglaro’s biggest weapon against making rushed, unhealthy food choices is her meal plan. “The No. 1 tool for making the change is planning,” said Paglaro. Paglaro involves her kids as well. Each child gets to pick an item from well-leafed recipe books to include in that week’s meal roster. In the kitchen, the kids are kept busy chopping and measuring. The Paglaros shared their love of gardening and cooking last year by entering a video contest set up by bettertogetherbc.ca. The website features blog entries, videos and forums about how to find the time to cook and eat together as a family. The site was created by the B.C. Ministry of Health and the B.C. Dairy Association. The family plans to enter the contest again this year, and aim to win it this time (last year they came in fifth with their recipe for stone soup). “It’s become a really, really fun family ritual and a way to celebrate all the commitments we make throughout the year,” said Paglaro.

IT is mid-summer, the sun is shining and the garden is abuzz with life and beauty. Just as you sit down to relax, the neighbour’s kid turns up his radio and throws a football that sails over the fence and lands at your feet. Or perhaps it is early morning and you’ve snuck out to the patio to read the Sunday paper just as your neighbour starts up his lawn mower to cut the grass. These are just a few of the things that annoy people while in their gardens and the list of garden-related annoyances seems almost endless. We enjoy spending time tending the veggie patch, sitting on the patio with a cold drink or relaxing in the hot tub, but with everincreasing building density our sanctuaries are being intruded upon. I did some research on the most common annoyances experienced in the garden that were reported to police, written about on websites or blogs, or discussed in chat rooms. The following are a few examples. ■ That noise is sapping my Zen

We expect our gardens to be places of tranquility and inspiration but noise-related complaints are common in the garden. Lawn mowers, blowers, chainsaws, loud parties and even shrill voices of neighbours can send us over the edge. Some people cited animal noises, like a barking dog that just won’t quit or cats fighting, as noise intrusions. Interestingly, some people found the gleeful sound of children playing and laughing as bothersome, and even the gentle sound of a wind chime can push the mild mannered into a frenzy. My wife’s least-liked sound in the garden is, as she puts it, “I get annoyed when there’s this constant nattering voice leaning over my shoulder telling me, ‘Like this, no not like that, how about if you try this?’ Sometimes he (Todd) just won’t stop talking and teaching. It saps my Zen.” ■ What’s that smell? It seems our noses have become acutely sensitized to any odour that intrudes into our gardens. Back in the day, the smell of fresh manure was an indication of building healthy soil or farmland glory, but today too much of a good thing is just an intrusion into our space and our noses. Smelly compost seems to be a problem for some people. Animal-related smells, including wandering skunks that pass by and leave their fragrant gift, or pet feces that get accidentally stepped on and that unmistakable smell of a dog that just rolled in whatever died were also commonly discussed. Pesticide odour deserves a notable mention as many people found those odours so overpowering it drove them indoors. And let’s not

The list of annoying smells continues with fabric softener from a dryer vent and even some neighbours’ perfume as olfactory intrusions into our garden sanctuaries. ■ Technology can be a curse As we modernize into technological oblivion it seems that all manner of electronic device has the potential to frustrate us and disturb our time in the garden. Cellphones with irritating or obnoxious ringtones seem to be hated most widely. After all, who

could stand the “I’m sexy and I know it” ring tone going off every 10 minutes over the fence from some over-excited teenager. Technology has also allowed stereo systems to widely infiltrate gardens. Sound emanates from all corners, pumping out of stylish stereo-rocks, underwater pool speakers or blasting from a surround sound stereo system in the house that’s cranked up while the parents are out. Then there are those eardrumpuncturing alarms for cars, houses and even sheds. Not See Dense page 15

Dense hedge bars backyard intrusions From page 14 to mention those cute but irritating gate beepers that ring, beep or chirp every time the neighbour’s gate opens. Also mentioned were sunspotintensity security motion lights that cause temporary blindness that are so sensitive they go off when a chipmunk scurries up a tree. ■ Grow up you jerk This was a common refrain stated

by people who got annoyed when neighbouring adults acted loudly or like juveniles. Chat-room discussions seem to single out drunken loudness, verbal arguments and swearing as being particularly irksome. To stop all of these intrusions there really is no substitute for a big, dense hedge backed by a tall, solid wood fence, or a concrete fence if you can afford it. I, however, use a more simple approach to all of these bothersome

intrusions. I put on my airport-rated safety ear muffs, put a clothespin on my nose, slip on my 1970s mirrored sunglasses, and take my glass of wine and newspaper with me to find a secluded place to enjoy the garden in all its glory.

last a lifetime For over six years, Dr. Rahmany and the staff at Skyline Dental Centre have been committed to providing you with compassionate, professional dental care of the highest standards in a comfortable and relaxed environment. To ensure that your smile lasts a lifetime, here are five reasons to see your dentist.

TO HELP MAINTAIN GOOD PHYSICAL HEALTH

TO PREVENT GUM DISEASE, BAD BREATH AND TO KEEP YOUR TEETH

One of the best reasons to take care of your mouth is that people with periodontal or gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease according to recent studies. Oral bacteria can enter the bloodstream, attaching to fatty plaques in the heart’s blood vessels, causing clots to form. Inflammation in the gums contributes to swelling in the arteries. Regular dental cleanings will likely reduce your risk of heart disease and strokes.

Gum disease is an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. If diagnosed early, it can be treated and reversed. Studies show that 85% of people with persistent bad breath have a dental problem that is to blame. Good oral hygiene is essential in preventing bad breath. If treatment is not received, a more serious and advanced stage of gum disease may follow, leading to tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings and checkups are key factors in preventing this from happening.

TO DETECT DENTAL PROBLEMS EARLY

Dr. Rahmany and the hygienists at Skyline Dental Centre will be able to detect any early signs of problems with your teeth and gums. Early detection of cavities, broken fillings and gum disease are easily treatable. If these problems go untreated, root canals, gum surgery and removal of teeth could become the only treatment options available. Your hygienist will help to ensure that you are maintaining your oral health and will put you back on the right path if you fall off track with your oral care.

TO PREVENT ORAL CANCER

TO HAVE A WHITE SMILE

According to Health Canada, about 4000 new cases will be diagnosed in Canada this year, and about 1500 people will die from oral cancer this year. When you have your dental cleaning, we use special equipment geared towards screening for oral cancer, which is highly curable if diagnosed early.

Your hygienist will remove most coffee, tobacco and tea stains, and will polish your teeth to a beautiful shine With our new SpaDent Whitening system, we also provide state-of-the-art technology to improve the shade of your teeth in just 20 minutes, WITH NO SENSITIVITY! Ask us about our new SpaDent system. Call us at Skyline Dental Centre for a free consultation today!

Glittery daisies dazzle

Barb Lunter HERE’S a quick and easy idea for a summer floral arrangement.

All you will require for this is a miniature cylinder vase, a package of gerbera daisies and some gold glitter or gold beads. This style of arrangement is perfect for a side table by a couch or on a fireplace mantle. If you cut the daisies shorter you may be able to use a few of these scattered along a dining table. Materials: Clear, miniature cylinder vases (available at craft stores) Gerbera daisies (one colour or assorted) Sharp floral scissors or knife Mod Podge A small paintbrush Thin ribbon Glitter or Microbeads Mod Podge is a water-based sealer, glue and finish and it is available in a matte or gloss finish. I like to use it as multipurpose glue with a small brush for projects such as this. You can find luster gloss microbeads in the Martha Stewart Section of craft stores. Begin by placing a small amount of Mod Podge around the base of the vase approximately four centimetres in width. Carefully sprinkle the gold glitter or beads around the

Tidal flats host migrating shorebirds

“WHERE have all the swallows gone?” is a question I’m often asked.

Wild About Birds Al Grass

Recent studies have shown a dramatic decline in many songbird species, with the barn swallow down by 60 to 70

per cent. There are a number of reasons for this sad state of affairs, especially in neo-tropical migrants like warblers, vireos, and flycatchers, who spend their winters in Central and South America. Local resident species like the short-eared owl, horned lark and western

meadowlark are also getting hard to find. One of the chief reasons for this situation is habitat loss and fragmentation. Habitat provides the essentials of life including food, shelter and water. Sanctuaries like the North Shore’s Maplewood Conservation Area

protect a mosaic of habitats including tidal flats, forest, stream, freshwater, meadow and salt marsh. Maplewood’s tidal flats are critically important to everything from migrating shorebirds (waders), great blue heron (local subspecies), waterfowl, ospreys, eagles, TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS Vancouver Bentall Tower Three Oakridge Centre Pacific Centre 2163 West 4th Ave. 2338 Cambie St. 925 West Georgia St. 689 Thurlow St. 1855 Burrard St. 3121 West Broadway 2748 Rupert St. 950 West Broadway 1707 Robson St. 1092 Kingsway 625 Howe St. 551 Robson St.

gulls and terns. It is also where one of British Columbia’s largest purple martin nesting colonies is located. Fall is the season when shorebirds move through from their northern breeding areas (some in the Arctic) to wintering areas in South America — a fantastic migration. Tidal flats provide needed rest and refueling like invertebrates and a nutritious biofilm. In recent weeks, birders have observed greater yellowlegs, semi-palmated sandpipers, spotted sandpiper and killdeer (a plover) at the sanctuary. But pectoral, least and western sandpipers will also be passing through, and with luck a Baird’s sandpiper and a godwit. Maplewood’s salt marsh remains the most significant habitat of its kind on the North Shore. In less enlightened times, salt marshes were considered to be waste lands, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Specialized plants are found here, like glasswort (sea asparagus), gum weed and oraci (sea spinach). Not only do birds dwell in the salt marsh, but a host of special creatures including clams, crabs, worms and fish. The seaward end of the marsh is where we most often see the black oystercatcher and the harlequin duck. The North Shore’s forests range from ancient coniferous (sub-alpine) to young deciduous woods, each supporting its own special host of birds from the colourful red-breasted sapsucker to the beautiful hermit, Swainson’s and varied thrushes, vireos, flycatchers and the beautiful western tanager. Fields and meadows are scarce on the North Shore, and yet there are species that depend on these grassy habitats like the short-eared owl, northern harrier, western meadowlark and savannah sparrow. Beautiful coastal blacktail deer also browse in Maplewood meadows. Aquatic habitats are not only home for waterfowl, but also dragonflies, damselflies, amphibians and many other wonderful species. Bats fly over the ponds snatching mosquitos from mid-air with their amazing sonar. The mix of waterfowl depends greatly on the season with an excellent diversity of species wintering in fresh, brackish and salt-water habitats. These include goldeneyes, scaup, scoters, loons, grebes, cormorants, kingfishers, and seals. We can all help to make B.C. a better place for birds, butterflies and other wildlife. A small sanctuary like Maplewood Conservation Area is a big step where we can come to experience nature’s wonders. Al Grass is a naturalist with Wild Bird Trust of British Columbia, which sponsors free walks at Maplewood Conservation Area on the second Saturday of every month. This Saturday, Aug. 11, learn about the habitat for wildlife at Maplewood. Meet at 10 a.m. at Maplewood Flats, 2645 Dollarton Hwy.

I need a half an hour so I leave at around 8:30 a.m. Easy, right? Yes, it’s easy in the summer but during the school year I need to be extremely strategic.

both directions. The same thing happens in the late afternoon. What’s happening? Parents are delivering their kids to school and picking them up at the end of the day. It seems like a nice and responsible thing to do, but in fact we are doing our kids no favours when we deliver and pick them up from school. We are missing some great opportunities to help them be healthier and develop high self-esteem. It is a parent’s job to help their children achieve independence. Teaching them how to walk to school safely is a good first step. Dropping kids off at school has become so institutionalized that we have forgotten all the value in having them get themselves from home to the classroom. Kids who walk or bike to school are getting regular, daily exercise. When they are driven they are being sedentary. I have driven past schools and watched parents pull up and double and sometimes triple park. They jaywalk with

The children are learning that it’s OK to ignore the crosswalk and crossing guards. They learn to dodge and weave between cars, and they learn that they are not capable of getting themselves to school. Those aren’t the lessons parents plan on teaching. They want to keep their kids safe. I know that if asked, they would also say that they want their children to become capable and independent. Walking to school is an important part of growing up and maturing. Kids learn how to get from point A (home) to point B (school). Being able to handle this task builds selfesteem. Self-esteem is built on challenge and eventual success. Learning how to get to school may be an initial challenge for kids but when they succeed it’s such a good feeling. I know you don’t want your child walking all by himself or herself. The trick is to talk to your neighbours, talk to the parent committee, and watch to see who travels the same routes as you. If you can sell the members of your child’s class or the parents at a parent committee meeting on the

value of children walking to school you’re in good shape. So how can you make this happen? It starts tomorrow. You need to teach your kids how to make the walk and where they are going. So take your child by the hand and start walking. As you walk, you talk. Describe where you are and where you are going. Point out some of the potential hazards they will face. Teach them how to cross the streets. After a few days of this, reverse position. Now the child talks and leads the walk telling you where they are going and how they will do it. The next step is letting them go first, with you following and just watching. You will be amazed at how competent and capable they have become. Still nervous? For parents who are not ready to let their kids walk on their own, an alternative is to set up a walking school bus program. Check out www.walkingschoolbus.org for more information. In this program a designated parent (you can take turns) walks a pre-determined route picking See Start page 21

up kids on the way until they’re at the school. So there is an adult, but at least the kids are walking and learning how to behave on neighbourhood streets. The walking school bus can be a transition so that eventually the kids will be walking without an adult leader. The positive is that there is an adult with the kids and they are getting some exercise before they have to sit still in class. However, they are not learning to get places on their own, which is why I suggest this be a transition move, not a permanent move. Do your kids a favour. Start to teach them now so that by the first day of school in September they will comfortably and confidently head off to meet their new teacher and start another school year.

Okanagan sockeye return

Deana Lancaster dlancaster@nsnews.com

WELL this is embarrassing. When a press release landed in my inbox a few months back about Oliver-area winery Tinhorn Creek getting certified as “Salmon Safe” I figured that was probably a given, since the winery is in a desert . . . in the Okanagan. Everyone knows salmon are a coastal fish, swimming up rivers, streams and byways here and up the coast. The only way Interior residents could get salmon, I reasoned, was by delivery truck. So I was surprised to find out that the salmon I was eating for dinner last week at Watermark Beach Resort in Osoyoos came from the same sparkling lake that the resort butts up against. It turns out there have always been native salmon species in the Okanagan. They make an incredible 1,000kilometre journey from the Chefs for Coho: Until Aug. 9, Lower Lonsdale’s Fishworks and The Coho Society are teaming up to protect and rejuvenate Salmon habitat on the North Shore. Enjoy a three-course Oceanwise sustainable salmon menu at Fishworks and help sustain Coho Salmon. The lunch menu is $17, the dinner menu is $29. Fishworks is at 91 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver; call 778-3403449/fishworks.ca.

GRILLED Osoyoos Lake salmon is drizzled in berry gastrique on the patio at Watermark Beach Resort. mouth of the Columbia River where it bisects the states of Washington and Oregon, up the Columbia River, into the Okanagan River system. Hydro-electric dams on the Columbia and man-made adjustments to the river channels between the lakes, such as the Penticton Channel, gradually blocked the fish from returning to their spawning grounds. A decade ago, the number of salmon returning were down to a few thousand. Which makes it all the more incredible that this year, approximately 500,000 sockeye salmon are expected in the Okanagan River system. A recent press release from the Vancouver-based Pacific Salmon Foundation gives credit to a dedicated team of eight member communities

Which is why, after tucking into a Truffled Rocket Salad — a decadent arrangement of arugula tossed in a truffle vinaigrette, then garnished with B.C. blue cheese, vanilla poached pear and candied walnuts — I was able to enjoy wild salmon, caught in Osoyoos Lake. Watermark executive chef Jonas Stadtlander gets to work the outdoor barbecue on the resort’s patio in the summer months, and it’s there that he grills the succulent fish (along with seasonal veggies, corn on the cob and potatoes) then drizzles it in a local berry gastrique.

Cucumber for more than a sandwich

A glass of crisp Gehringer Brothers Dry Riesling from the all-Okanagan wine list made it even better. For Watermark guests who want to do more than enjoy the bounty of the lake from the patio or wine bar, the resort is offering a special Watermark Fishing Excursion package until Aug. 31. Guided by both a sports fisherman, and representative from the ONA, eager fisherman will experience the thrill of witnessing the largest sockeye return in decades whilst learning about the traditions and culture behind these very precious fish. Each guest can legally catch and keep two salmon. Any beyond that are given to ONA to sell at a daily market at the Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre where along with the fish, fresh and organic produce will be available. Proceeds will keep this fishery alive. Rates for the package — which includes one night of accommodation and a four-hour fishing tour for two people — start from $409 based on double occupancy. For more information or for reservations, visit www. watermarkbeachresort.com. As for Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, it turns out that the certification they received from the Pacific Salmon Foundation is a big deal. One of the first wineries to do it, being Salmon Safe means passing a rigorous assessment of their environmental practices. Find out more at salmonsafe.org.

FOR a lot of people, cucumbers only bring to mind an everyday addition to a green salad or a filling for tea sandwiches.

Not that I’m giving a bad rap to cucumber sandwiches — I love them. But cucumbers lend themselves beautifully to many other preparations too. I must make it clear right off the bat that when I say “cucumber” I refer only to the long English variety; the woody, seed-laden field cukes aren’t worth buying, in my opinion. Now that English cucumbers are in season and priced very reasonably, try out these recipes for the coolest veggie in the garden. And if you are making sandwiches, try combining cucumber slices with baby shrimp, smoked salmon or liver paté for a new twist (spread the bread with some mayonnaise or softened cream cheese first).

According to a written statement, Irwin, a 2012 graduate of Rockridge secondary, joined his school’s environmental club and led various initiatives to achieve his vision of a greener, more sustainable community. With the club’s executive team, he helped organize shoreline clean-ups and invasive ivy pulls and also enhanced the school’s composting and recycling programs by increasing involvement and attaining 50 per cent waste reduction at the school. He has shared his school’s waste reduction strategies with other groups, including West Vancouver secondary’s Environmental Protection Network. Irwin also co-founded a school garden and helped secure the installation of 15 solar panels at Rockridge and inspired environmental action through a concert that showcased student musical talent. For more information on the Toyota Earth Day Scholarship Program, visit www.earthday. ca/scholarship. ••• Representatives of the Certified General Accountants Association of B.C. recently announced the recipients of their Grade 12 Graduate Continuing Education Tuition Scholarships for the 2011-2012 academic year.

than excited to help these recipients as they move onto the next chapter in their lives and educational careers. The Park Royal bursary program has been in existence since 1991 and has provided more than $200,000 to local secondary school students. This year, Park Royal distributed the scholarship funding among 11 local secondary schools. The bursaries are awarded to students at their year-end commencement ceremonies and are based on individual criteria set by each school. This year’s recipients, by school, include: ■ West Vancouver secondary: Natasha Hodgson and Anna Barton; ■ Seycove secondary: Reilla Archibald and Julia Krakowska; ■ Windsor secondary: John Sutton and May Kikuchi; ■ Carson Graham secondary: Justin Wong; ■ St. Thomas Aquinas secondary: Grace O’Connell; ■ Handsworth secondary: Celeste Melliship; ■ Argyle secondary: Kristin Bourne; ■ Seycove secondary: Julia Krakowska; ■ Rockridge secondary: Lauren Hamilton For more information about Park Royal’s community partnerships and initiatives, visit shopparkroyal.com/community-partners. ••• The Canadian Iranian Foundation presented 10 students at local secondaries with postsecondary scholarships in June.

THERE were no top100 players in the men’s draw when the Odlum Brown VanOpen started at West Vancouver’s Hollyburn Country Club on July 28 but by the time it ended on Sunday there was one headed that way in a hurry.

NEWS photo Lisa King

RUBEN Bemelmans of Belgium stretches for a return in the men’s doubles final at the VanOpen Sunday. Bemelmans teamed with countryman Maxime Authom to defeat John Peers and John-Patrick Smith of Australia to win the title.

It took Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands just one hour to beat Ukraine’s Sergei Bubka 6-1, 7-5 in Sunday’s final played under a scorching summer sun. Seeded No. 1 in the tournament, Sijsling jumped from 102 in the world rankings all the way up to 74 when the list was updated on Monday. The 24-year-old may turn out to be one of the Open’s famous shooting stars — youngsters like Maria Sharapova and Andy Murray played the tournament before hitting it big — as he has risen to his current spot after beginning 2012 as the 200th-ranked player in the world. This is the first time he’s cracked the top-100 in his career. “It’s one of my goals I set when I was a little kid,” Sijsling said after the match. “I’m really happy that I broke into it and I’m trying to stay there for a long time.” The Dutch player was too hot to handle in the early going as he scored three service breaks en route to a quick win of the first set. In the second set Bubka, son of the famous Ukrainian pole vaulter of the same name,

battled back to make things interesting but in the end Sijsling set the bar too high. “He played really well today, it was very difficult from the first point on,” said Bubka. “I felt like I had to do something special to beat him — he wasn’t missing and was playing aggressively and deserved to win.” Sijsling, who said he hoped to be back next year to defend his title, was very happy with the way he played on the Hollyburn courts. “I felt very comfortable playing here and confident on the court — it’s been a great week for me,” he said. “I had a great time, it’s a beautiful club, beautiful town, beautiful people.” The VanOpen champ on the women’s side also got a nice career bump for her troubles. In an all-American final, Mallory Burdette topped Jessica Pegula 6-3, 6-0 to claim the title without dropping a single set in the tournament. The win earned Burdette a wild card entrance into the main draw of U.S. Open which begins at the end

of August. “I’m so excited,” Burdette said, moments after learning that she’d earned a ticket into the Grand Slam tournament. “I knew that it was going to be a tough match today — I played Jessie last week and we just go shot-for-shot. She hits the ball so well. I really enjoyed playing her, actually. I knew it was going to be tough right from the beginning and I’m proud of the way that I hung in there. I was definitely feeling the nerves a little bit but I worked through it and it was a great day.” The action started on Sunday with the men’s doubles final and it was the Belgian duo of Maxime Authom and Ruben Bemelmans that took the title, defeating John Peers and John-Patrick Smith of Australia 6-4, 6-2. The women’s doubles final, played Saturday, was won by Julia Glushko of Israel and Olivia Rogowska of Australia who knocked off Jacqueline Cako and Natalie Pluskota of the United States 6-4, 5-7 (10-7).

North Vancouver’s Lauren Wilkinson got the party started early with her silver medal win with the women’s eight rowing team on Thursday morning but things weren’t quite so sweet for Lauren’s older brother Michael Wilkinson. Two hours before Lauren won silver Michael was on the water finishing fifth in a semifinal with the men’s four crew, considered to be a dark horse team for a medal. Michael and the Canadian team went on to finish third in Saturday’s B final, good enough for ninth overall. On Sunday it was Zach Bell, a Yukon native who lives in North Vancouver, who was racing for gold in track cycling but came up short in the omnium. Bell, considered a strong medal threat, finished eighth after picking up a bad score in the points race, one of the event’s six races. In his racing career this was only the second time Bell had failed to reach the top-3 in an omnium race. That same day Coquitlam’s Brittany Rogers, who trains at North Vancouver’s Flicka Gymnastics, competed in the women’s vault individual final and finished seventh. West Vancouver windsurfers Nikola Girke and Zac Plavsic finished off the long-weekend action with RS-X medal races on Tuesday morning. Both reached the 10-person medal finals and both struggled in the final races. Plavsic sailed with a broken board through much of the final race and finished last, leaving him in eighth place for the competition. Girke also finished last in the medal race and ended up 10th overall for the competition. Also on the water, West Vancouver’s Hunter Lowden, partnering with Gordon Cook, did not make the medal final in the men’s 49er sailing competition. The biggest heartbreak for the North Shore crew was North Vancouver’s Tiffany Foster, whose horse was disqualified in the equestrian show jumping competition (see story page 5). The final North Shore athlete to hit the Olympic stage will be 22-year-old North Vancouver runner Jessica Smith whose first heat in the women’s 800 m was scheduled for Wednesday at 3:35 a.m. PDT. If she advances the semifinals will go Thursday at 11:30 a.m. with the finals scheduled for Saturday at noon. — compiled by Andy Prest

West Van’s Reinhart and Rielly set for Summit Series sequel

WEST Vancouver buddies Morgan Rielly and Griffin Reinhart, now forever linked as the Hollyburn Huskies teammates who went fourth and fifth in the 2012 NHL draft, will reunite this month for the 2012 Canada-Russia Challenge.

The two defencemen were recently named to the Canadian national junior team that will represent the country in a four-game series that is beingplayedtocommemoratethe40thanniversary of the famous 1972 Summit Series. The Canadian juniors will battle the Russians Aug. 9 and 10 in

Yaroslavl, Russia before returning home for two more games Aug. 13 and 14 in Halifax. Hockey Canada selected 28 players born in 1993 or ’94 for the series. Aside from paying tribute to the iconic series that lives on as one of the biggest moments in Canadian sports history, the 2012 Challenge will also serve as the first step in the identification process of players for the Canadian National Junior Team for the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championships which will be played Dec. 26, 2012 to Jan. 5, 2013 in Ufa, Russia. All four games in the Canada-Russia Challenge will be broadcast on TSN. — Andy Prest
