Man charged for Dark Knight shooting threat North Van Facebook postings called for repeat of Colorado rampage, say police Jen St. Denis and Jane Seyd

A North Vancouver man who allegedly posted messages on Facebook saying he wanted to commit a crime in the Lower Mainland similar to the recent shooting rampage in Colorado appeared in North Vancouver provincial court Wednesday, charged with uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm. “His postings were several, and they were fairly lengthy and made reference to Colorado shootings and that he wanted to repeat that behaviour here in the Vancouver area,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong of the North Vancouver RCMP. Ryan John Lewis, 32, was arrested Aug. 1 at his home in the Lower Lonsdale area. Had had allegedly posted comments supporting the Colorado incident, which left a dozen people dead after a man opened fire in a movie theatre during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises, and said, “What happened in Colorado could or should be repeated in the Vancouver area,” said De Jong.

West Van police target pack of prowling Porsches

Jen St. Denis

WEST Vancouver police are wagging their fingers at some leadfooted luxury car owners after they pulled over a ‘pack’ of four Porsches on the Sea to Sky corridor. The cars, they say, were going as much as 50 kilometres per hour over the limit.

A West Vancouver officer who was patrolling the highway early Aug. 4 clocked the vehicles reaching speeds of between 125 and 131 kilometres an hour in an 80-zone. The cars were among about 50 Porsches driving in a group, according to Cpl. Fred Harding, a spokesman for the WVPD. The drivers are members of a Porsche club who, it turns out, had been warned by the same officer just one week before being pulled over. “He saw them out there at a similar time a week later and came across the same group driving through there again, but this time they were doing excessive speeds,” said Harding. The four drivers, all from Vancouver and between the ages of 24 and 47, were given $368 tickets. Their cars were impounded for seven days at a cost of $22 per day.

Witness recounts camp fuel attack Jane Seyd

A North Vancouver man has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly dousing an acquaintance with camping fuel and setting him on fire during an alcoholfuelled argument on the weekend.

From page 1

New details of the incident have emerged in the days since the attack, including an account from a man who says he saw it first hand. Brian Kenneth Pert, 34, has been charged with the attempted murder of 56-year-old Russell Rozell. Pert has been released on bail, under conditions to stay away from Rozell and the hospital where Rozell remains in a medically induced coma after suffering burns to 50 per cent of his body. Rozell’s friend Michael Smith said he’s not happy to see Pert has been released.

Summer storm strands hundreds on Grouse

Jen St. Denis

A dramatic summer lightning storm stranded about 300 people at the top of Grouse Mountain on Tuesday night. Staff at the resort suspended operation of the Skyride, which transports visitors from the base of the North Vancouver peak to the ski area, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. while the unusually inclement weather blew through, said Jodi Westbury, a spokeswoman for Grouse. “At that time we got a couple of runs of people in, and then it went back on weather standby until after 10 p.m.,” said Westbury. All of the visitors made it off the mountain by 11 p.m. The inconvenience was offset by some spectacular views of the storm, according to staff. With clouds low in the sky, guests on top of the mountain were at eye-level with the show. Forked lightning could be seen over the ocean, said Mike Bowman, a Grouse Mountain patrol manager who was on duty Tuesday night. “When there would be a big one, there would be kind of a cheer about it being spectacular . . . it would light up the sky, and the thunder would be quite loud,” said Bowman.

They were planning to head back down in the tram to be back home in time for dinner. Up at the top of the Grind, the pair took in the view — and waited for the Skyride to re-open. “There was cloud cover all over Vancouver,” said Loat. “You could sort of see the sunset over the clouds . . . There was lightning in the distance, but pretty quickly it came closer.”

Not wanting to risk a walk back down the Grind with darkness falling and a pair of bad knees between them, Loat and van Zanten settled in for a long wait and ended up having dinner at the alreadypacked restaurant. The storm hit the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, knocking out power to around 17,000 homes. Two people, one in Coquitlam and the other in Surrey, were taken to hospital after being hit by lightning.

LIGHTNING shattered a fir tree on Grand Boulevard near 13th Street during the storm, flinging debris as much as a block.

“There was certainly anger portrayed in his Facebook page,” De Jong added. Investigators were alerted to the threats July 24 when an anonymous caller tipped them off, said De Jong. Police launched an investigation to track down the owner of the Facebook account involved. Lewis’ account was not protected by privacy settings, meaning that anyone could access the page and see its contents. Facebook has now removed it. Investigators seized Lewis’ home computer for forensic analysis to see if he had made any other threats using social media, said De Jong. The spokesman could not confirm whether any weapons had been found in Lewis’ home. Lewis has been released on bail under several conditions: He cannot have access to the Internet; he must live with his mother and abide by a curfew; he can’t possess weapons or explosives; and he must not consume alcohol or non-prescription drugs. He must also attend forensic psychiatric outpatient services and take anger management counselling. According to information obtained by the North Shore News, Lewis is not known to suffer from mental illness but has been described as an “angry” person, who also suffers from chronic back pain. In an interview with the Province newspaper, Lewis said he never intended to follow through on his comments, describing his actions as “stupid.” But De Jong said nobody should be surprised if comments of that kind prompt a reaction from police. “Comments and postings are not private,” he said. De Jong said it doesn’t matter if someone makes a threat in person, phones it in, texts it or posts it on social media. “These type of threats are taken seriously.” Police do not consider Lewis, who works part time as a bakery assistant, an ongoing threat, added De Jong. Lewis did not return calls from the News by press time. He will make his next appearance in court Aug. 22. On July 20, gunman James Holmes allegedly killed 12 people and injured 58 when he opened fire in a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. Since then, a possible copycat killer was reportedly arrested at an Ohio movie theatre. Press reports said a man was discovered in possession of multiple weapons while sitting in an empty theatre waiting for the 10 p.m. showing of the same movie.

Spending on muni suppliers hits $270M

Roadworks top list of N. Shore bills Jane Seyd

IT may not be sexy, but companies that hauled garbage, paved roads, laid turf and fixed sewer lines were among those that made good money doing business with local governments last year. The three municipalities on the North Shore spent almost $270 million on suppliers last year, up from $251 million in 2010. Details of how that money was spent is contained in reports local governments file each year under the Financial Information Act, listing all amounts over $25,000. As usual, keeping the lights on at town hall and the wheels of government itself running meant racking up some hefty bills. The District of West Vancouver, for instance, spent $1.26 million on Hydro, almost $3 million on fuel and more than $651,000 on phone companies. The City of North Vancouver spent $663,000 on property insurance and paid more than $9.2 million to the Greater Vancouver sewer and water authorities for provision

of those services. The District of North Vancouver paid $383,000 to keep the street and traffic lights on and almost $246,000 to insure its vehicles. As the largest municipality on the North Shore, the District of North Vancouver also spent the most on suppliers last year, forking over more than $150 million for everything from a nearly $11-million RCMP contract to engineering consultants and computer software licences. Among some of the bigger ticket items, the district paid $4.38 million to BA Blacktop for road paving. The district paid $435,000 to AstroTurf West Distributors and $1.75 million to Wilco Civil Inc. for work on the Windsor turf field. Some of the money paid to Wilco also went to construction on the Spirit Trail. Capilano Highway Services was also paid $742,500 for Spirit Trail construction, while Mission Contractors was paid almost $529,000 for trail work. Other payments included about $245,000 to Delcan for work on Capilano Road widening and culvert replacement and $309,000 to Lehigh Hanson Materials for work to repair a barge ramp plus a supply of road aggregate. The district also paid $306,000 to Andrew Sheret for water main pipes and fittings and $227,000 to Mainroad Maintenance Products for road salt.

Meanwhile, it spent $3 million to buy three residential properties on Hunter Street. Over in West Vancouver, the district spent $66 million on suppliers and contractors last year, including work on roads, sewers and fields. West Vancouver paid BA Blacktop $4.2 million for paving and Ansan Industries $502,000 for flagging last year. Mar-Tech Underground Services was paid $771,000 and PW Trenchless Construction was paid more than $1 million for work on the Ambleside sewer rehabilitation project. The Ambleside hockey pitch was another project that resulted in big contracts. AstroTurf West Distributors was paid almost $641,000 for work on that, while Cedar Crest Lands was paid almost $1.34 million. ConVerge Construction was paid $1 million for work on the Ambleside fieldhouse and landscaping. Emterra Environmental was paid $1.42 million to haul away garbage and yard trimmings. Carver Construction garnered almost $1.7 million for work on the Montizambert water treatment plant. In the City of North Vancouver, the smallest municipal government on the North Shore, taxpayers still spent $53 million on suppliers last year.

THE District of North Vancouver, District of West Vancouver, and City of North Vancouver spent a combined $270 million on suppliers last year. Contract work on Windsor secondary’s turf field was among the bigger expenses. Among the larger projects, the city spent $5.8 million with Dominion Fairmile Construction, the general contractor on the new city hall. About $305,000 also went to T.G. Fire Protection Ltd for a city hall sprinkler retrofit. The city paid Surespan Construction $2.4 million for work on the Harbourside west overpass and Bewicke

bridge replacement while Neelco Builders received more than $263,000 as general contractors for the Cotton Road bridge resurfacing. Golder Associates was paid almost $348,000 for work on the city works yard and former shipyards site. Mondiale Development got almost $289,000 for environmental remediation work on Lot 3 in the former

shipyards site. The municipality also paid DFI Corporation $250,000 as general contactor on the city’s sewer relining project, and paid BA Blacktop $1.75 million for repaving on Fell and Chesterfield avenues and the Marine Drive bike lane. The city also paid $571,000 to municipal lawyers Bull Housser & Tupper for legal work last year.

Testing their medal O

N Thursday, Canadian sports fans had reason to celebrate. No, it wasn’t a gold medal win. But when the Canadian women’s soccer team snatched victory from the jaws of earlier defeat and pulled off a win against France for the bronze medal, the nation was cheering for them. It was a sweet victory for the women’s squad, who came back from a heartbreaking loss to the Americans in the midst of controversial refereeing on the weekend. The soccer team managed to get past that on Thursday to beat a team ranked above them in FIFA standings. Bronze was shining a little brighter than usual for all Canadians. That’s notable, because in the space of a week, our women’s soccer

team became the squad to root for — occupying a space in the national imagination usually only reserved for men’s hockey teams. The soccer players aren’t the only female Olympians who have done our country proud. Rosie MacLennan, the trampoline gymnast, has been the only Canadian to earn gold so far. Clara Hughes didn’t make the finals in cycling, but still retired as one of the most successful Canadian Olympians ever. Hughes has also been tireless in her support of causes promoting sport for all kids — not just those who can afford it. That’s an important value. We should feel proud that we encourage girls to excel, and that those whose hard work has paid off are now inspiring a younger generation.


Oil critic has crude grasp of facts

Dear Editor: Letter writer Mike Richardson, criticizing MP John Weston, implies that oil pipelines exporting Canadian crude oil contribute to “global greenhouse gas emissions” (Oil Will be Economy’s Undoing, Aug. 5, North Shore News). This is largely untrue on a net basis. This thesis assumes that if Canadians refuse to sell crude oil to (for example) China, the Chinese will not buy the commodity elsewhere. This is a ridiculous assumption; they will buy the commodity from another supplier, and the world greenhouse gas emissions will stay approximately the same. There might be slight differences in GHG emissions due to the crude’s quality or to the cleanliness (or lack thereof) of local production and transportation practices, but these differences are generally small on a wells-to-wheels basis.

It’s disappointing to see Vancouver residents unaware that tankers have run crude oil and petroleum products through Vancouver Harbour since 1915 (the start-up of Imperial’s Port Moody refinery) without incident. Few know that 70 per cent of B.C.’s crude and petroleum products are imported by combinations of tankers and pipelines. All petroleum for Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii is tankered to them, as is the case with many other B.C. ports. If these tankers and pipelines did not exist, we would all be walking or on bicycles and would have no way to get food and other goods to citizens. Contrary to the arguments of some, environment and energy have coexisted in B.C. for nearly a century, and I believe they can continue to do so. John Hunter North Vancouver

Oil backers put wells before wellness Dear Editor: An open letter to John Weston, MP for West VancouverSunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country: I wish to object to the Conservative Party’s stand on the pipeline and tanker plans for B.C. (Oil, Environment Can Be on Same Team, July 29, North Shore News). There is no sensible reason whatsoever to put at risk our waterways, water table, fish and wildlife habitat. Our natural environment must come before everything else. Our Premier’s stand must be: “No pipeline, no tankers, no negotiations.” I want to be counted as one in your constituency that stands with the First Nations in objecting to this outrageous plan. We could learn a lot from that culture about what is of real


value on this earth, but instead we blindly chase ever more financial gain. Greed is driving this despicable project. Mr. Weston, please think independently on this issue. We all know that the prime minister and the cabinet intend to push it through, so our hope for the future lies with the courageous MPs who will stand up and speak for the majority of Canadians who do not think like the myopic ultra Conservatives that are currently running our country. Contrary to what many men have been conditioned to think, business and profits are not what life is all about. Please re-examine your position. I wish you the courage to take a life-affirming stand that your party does not approve of. Gail Cotter West Vancouver

Dog owners: do your duties Dear Editor: As someone who uses many of the trails and parks in North Vancouver, it is with great annoyance and disappointment I write this letter. It seems dog owners of the North Shore do not see it as their responsibility to properly dispose of their dogs’ waste. See more page 7

Street music not the enemy Dear Editor: I have often passed and often stopped to listen to the talented Ms. Regehr — featured on the cover of your Aug. 5 issue — while she is performing (Busker Takes on City Noise Bylaws, North Shore News). Her music is very subtle and moderate in sound level. A few steps away, you do not hear her; there is no “noise” problem at all. I am amazed that the city is wasting time with such harassment. Ms. Regehr is actually a plus on our summer streets. I am puzzled at this petty bungling while, particularly in summer, our eardrums are shattered by unmuffled motorcycles that operate with impunity. A thousand Ms. Regehrs could not even come close to them. Pick on them Mr./Ms. Bylaws Officer, and do some real good for our city and our nerves. Mike Mcquarrie North Vancouver

Premier’s bold words fall on deaf ears

THE bad news just keeps accumulating for Premier Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals, and there’s little to suggest that pattern is going to change in their favour anytime soon.

The latest disappointment comes in the form of an Angus Reid poll, which shows Clark and her gang got absolutely no bounce in the polls from her pipeline announcement. Indeed, it is the NDP that is growing in popularity, while the B.C. Liberals are stuck, unable to get any traction at all with the voters. The poll followed on the heels of revelations of increased credit card spending in a number of government ministries, including Clark’s office. While there are a lot of misconceptions about such spending — thousands of dollars spent at a 7-11 might look suspicious, until you realize it was for bus

passes and phone cards for children in government care, for example — the fact is some of them are the kind of expenditures that can create anger among taxpayers. Take Clark’s office spending at five-star restaurants like Bishop’s and Cioppino’s in Vancouver. While the explanation for such spending may be acceptable to many (the dinners were for visiting premiers attending a conference), lavish dinners


Seniors: Beware the burglars in your inbox

Dear Editor: I wish to alert all Internet users, particularly seniors, to a recent scam. Someone, or possibly a group of people, hacked into my email account, read my emails and found my contact list. They informed each contact that I had been mugged in London, had had my passport and credit cards stolen and was so destitute I wanted $2,000 sent right away to an address there. They must have found out that I had been in London a short while ago. It turns out the address is a MoneyMart. Fortunately, most of my family and friends realized it was a scam and ignored it. Alas, one did send money, and was promptly asked to send more. This is when she got worried and realized the request was not legitimate. I have changed my email address, but would like to warn all you seniors, if you receive a request for money on behalf of a friend or of family, please check it out first. Mel Davis West Vancouver

also paint a picture of a politician living it up at the expense of taxpayers. The vast majority of people will never, ever eat at a five-star restaurant. And so they will question why they should foot the bill for their elected representatives to do so. Much, if not almost all, of this spending can no doubt be attributed to the cost of doing business. Indeed, the provincial government can be likened to a company that spends more than $43 billion a year and employs more than 30,000 people. Obviously, a lot of expenses are going to be incurred in an organization of that size. But the Angus Reid poll shows, once again, that a critical problem faces the B.C. Liberals: Simply put, the public has either tuned them out or do not afford them the benefit of the doubt on pretty well any issue — and that likely includes the expenses issue. As I wrote in this space

last week, I thought Clark’s pipeline position and fight with Alberta Premier Alison Redford might hold the possibility of resonating with voters in a way she had been unable to do with other issues. Obviously, this didn’t happen. In fact, her party declined by one point to just 22 per cent of decided voters. The NDP, meanwhile, continues to grow in popularity and is now approaching 50 per cent. The breakdown of the poll’s other findings reveal just what a bleak situation the B.C. Liberals find themselves in. Pick a category — region, gender, income level, age demographics — and the party trails in pretty well all of them. For example, just 15 per cent of decided female voters say they would back B.C.’s woman premier and her party — an astounding finding. The NDP also leads in all three age demographics, and among almost all income

groups. The B.C. Liberals have also lost the support of half the people who voted for them in 2009. They trail the NDP in all regions of the province, creating the potential for a scenario similar to the 2001 election results, except in reverse. The NDP is now poised to win seats in the Okanagan and parts of the Fraser Valley, areas usually unfriendly to the party. As much as the B.C. Liberals winning a seat like Vancouver-Kingsway in 2001 was unthinkable, so too is the NDP winning in Kelowna — but it now ranks as a very real possibility. So the pipeline ploy didn’t work for Clark. I suspect this latest dust-up over her expenses will further cement her problems. When people aren’t listening to you — or choose simply not to believe anything you say — it becomes impossible to make your case on any subject, whether it’s pipelines or expense accounts.

NV trails look like a dog’s breakfast From page 6

Apparently, the acceptable practice is to leave the bag of excrement on the side of the trail for someone else to pick up. And before any reader pipes up to say they return to pick the bags up later, I call B.S. I run, walk and bike many of the

trails and daily see two or three bags left, either from that day or previous days. If dog owners are not responsible enough to dispose of their dog’s waste, they should not be dog owners. Steve Bridge North Vancouver

As the next election draws nearer, it’s a safe bet to assume the bad news will continue to accumulate for the ruling party. The pattern has been set, and there’s little chance it will be altered in any great way. Even a change in leadership — as remote a possibility that it is — appears unlikely to right their ship.

Games no longer about knees or pyjamas

STRANGELY, in British slang, calling something “pants” means it is terrible, while “dog’s bollocks” means it is excellent.

The television show Big Brother is pants, you might say, if you’re not a fan of things that are excruciatingly boring. Bollocks, meanwhile, is a very old word meaning testicles, apparently. Why dog’s bollocks are so celebrated is a bit of a mystery. Some say it’s a natural, slightly vulgar evolution of the phrases “bee’s knees” and “cat’s pyjamas.” Others argue that they really must be amazing because of the apparent fondness most dogs have of them, a point that they make clear regularly on the couch. No matter. All eyes have been on England for the Olympic Games the last two weeks. In the spirit of Baron Pierre de Coubertin, who was famously declared “dog’s bollocks” after inventing the Olympic Games (in the same way that Christopher Columbus invented the Bahamas), let’s look at the winners (“The dog’s”) and losers (“That’s pants”) of the past fortnight: That’s pants: swimming. “Michael Phelps has won his 67th gold medal, this one coming in the 125-metre

The question on everyone’s mind is, can he win No. 68 tomorrow when he takes on a world-class field in the nail-biting 150-metre sideways swim? “If he can’t, he’ll only have 18 more chances to win a medal in the next three days.” I’m through with swimming on television. It really just looks like a lot of splashing water and the backs

of people’s heads. Or, in the backstroke, the front of people’s heads. Take away all the fancy TV graphics and lane markings, and watching swimming doesn’t seem that much more exciting than watching an empty pool. An empty pool might actually be better — at least you know for sure Michael Phelps isn’t in it. What Phelps has done is certainly outstanding — he is the greatest swimmer of all time. Swimming, also, is important in a life-or-death sense — everyone should learn how to swim. Whether you’re the most decorated Olympian in history or a kid at the lake, good for you for mastering the waves. Just look elsewhere for a lifeguard, because I ain’t watching.

The dog’s: athletics. In week 2 of the Games swimming gave way to track

That’s pants: equestrian. First of all, I’m not sold on an animal-powered event counting in the Games. Equestrian has grandfather status as one of the oldschool sports, but times have changed. These aren’t the Horse Olympics (insert joke about British dentistry here). Now equestrian is disqualifying North Vancouver’s Tiffany Foster and making her (and everyone watching her press conference)

cry because her horse has the equivalent of a paper cut on its leg? Come on equestrian, don’t make us send you to the glue factory. Tiffany deserved better. The dog’s: women’s soccer. With three goals in the Olympic semifinal against world No. 1-ranked United States, Christine Sinclair cemented herself as one of the best athletes in Canadian history and put in one of the greatest soccer performances I have ever seen. What a game. Canada went on to lose in overtime but followed up with a 1-0 win over France yesterday to take the bronze. For many Canadians, the defining memories from the 2012 Olympics will be of this tough team.

That’s pants: women’s soccer. Unfortunately all that anyone wants to talk about from that semifinal game is the

baffling call from Norwegian referee Christiana Pedersen that allowed the U.S. to tie the game 3-3 with 10 minutes left. Everyone knows the rest of the story. I’m one-eighth Norwegian, and as a penance I’ve cut off that part — which by my reckoning, works out to my left leg above the knee. It stings. Let’s move on.

That’s pants: men’s soccer. There’s a men’s soccer tournament at the Games? Is Messi in it? Is Xavi in it? Is Christine Sinclair in it? No? Meh. The dog’s: cycling road race. I know, I know — I can’t believe it either. I’ve long been immune to the siren call of dudes in super-tight spandex working a tiny saddle for three hours, but this year the road races, contested early on in the See To non-fans page 11

and field, an entertainmentvalue tradeoff akin to switching from kidney stones to Rolling Stones. I love me some track. Sunday’s 100-metre final, in which seven men ran sub10 seconds and Usain Bolt reasserted his place as the best sprinter in history, was more exciting than anything ever seen in a pool not involving sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their heads.

INQUIRING REPORTER CANADIAN athletes shone brightly at the 2010 Olympic Games, winning a record 14 gold medals, but at this year’s Summer Games in London, our country’s colour of choice has been bronze. As of Thursday, Canada was ranked 12th in total medal count, with 10 bronze medals, 5 silver, and one lonely gold. But let’s put it in perspective: The Winter Olympics are attended by far fewer countries — just 77 participated in 2010 compared 205 this year in London — making medals of any colour that much easier to come by. At the Summer Games, is bronze as good as gold? — Jen St. Denis

Anne Hermon North Vancouver I’d be happy if they got one medal. I think they’re working very hard and any medals are good enough.

Sam Jackson North Vancouver That’s a little disappointing. We did pretty good (in 2010).

Are you disappointed Canada’s medal haul is heavy on bronze?

Mina Ghanearzeh North Vancouver I’m not Canadian and my country (Iran) is down far (in the medal count). But I’m disappointed about Canada too.

Jeff Matthews North Vancouver Seems good. I think they’re all doing all right.

James Dooley Silverton, Oregon I think the Canadians are doing great. I felt badly for the big (soccer) game. I thought there were some tough calls . . . but they did great.

Voters up, CO2 down, city report claims Police nab theft suspect

Brent Richter

THE City of North Vancouver’s newly released annual report is chock full of municipal achievements in everything from voter turnout to greenhouse gas reduction. The 2011 overview, presented to council late last month, highlights several awards the city won for budget presentation and city planning, an increase in voter turnout of 3.5 per cent in last year’s municipal election, a reduction in break and enters in Lower Lonsdale of 58 per cent, the creation of affordable seniors’ rental housing and a drop in greenhouse gas emissions of 11 per cent. The city’s financials are looking good as well, according to the document, with $302 million sitting in the bank, and a surplus of roughly $9.5 million brought in last year.

Listed among the ongoing goals for the coming years: Moving forward with plans for the waterfront, including rehousing of North Vancouver Museum and Presentation House Gallery; completing a Harry Jerome recreation centre draft master plan; and developing an amenity funding policy. While council praised the report and the city’s wellbeing at a July 25 meeting, they also highlighted some flaws. The document is awash in local statistics, but there are no data from other municipalities to compare them to, Coun. Pam Bookham noted. Beyond that, it largely ignores the city’s regional obligations and risks, Coun. Guy Heywood added, pointing to the upcoming replacement of Metro Vancouver’s Lions Gate Wastewater Treatment Plant as an example, which is expected to cost about $400 million. Heywood added that publicly traded companies are required by law to include more information in their annual reports. The full report is available at city hall, the city library and on the city’s website:

WEST Vancouver Police have nabbed a suspected thief after a homeowner looked out of his window and noticed a man rifling through the car parked in his driveway. The resident was at home in the 1000-block of Eyremont Drive July 23 when he saw the alleged crime taking place.

He went outside to confront the man, and the suspect took off, dropping CDs as he ran, according to police. Officers arrested a man matching the description a short time later. Police said items were also stolen from another vehicle in the area, prompting them to ask anyone who lives in the Eyremont neighbourhood whose vehicle may have been targeted to contact them. Murray Gordon Peters has been charged with theft and possession of stolen property.

N. Van man arrested in Save-On-Foods arson Jen St. Denis

POLICE have arrested a man suspected of setting a North Vancouver supermarket on fire last month. Investigators were called to the Save-OnFoods at 1250 Marine Drive around 2 a.m. July 11 after staff working a late shift noticed smoke at the back of the store, according to North Vancouver RCMP. Fortunately, no one was injured in the blaze, and the employees were able to douse the flames

before the fire caused significant damage. Witnesses at the site told police they had seen a man outside the store earlier in the evening. Their description of the suspect eventually led investigators to the home of a 19-year-old North Vancouver resident, said Cpl. Richard De Jong of the North Vancouver RCMP. A search turned up enough evidence allegedly connecting him to the crime. Police are recommending charges of arson endangering life. The suspect’s name has not been released, but De Jong said the man was not an employee or former employee of the store.

To non-fans, judo robes are pants From page 9

Games, were the first events that really grabbed me. Maybe Ryder Hesjedal’s win in the Giro D’Italia — followed by an interesting Tour de France — has vaulted me into the OK-with-bike-racing portion of my life. The scenery certainly is lovely. I’m even pumped about celebrating a whole new set of medal winners when it’s discovered in a couple of years that everyone in the race

was full of more drugs than Charlie Sheen’s sock drawer.

That’s pants: judo. Apologies to anyone who loves judo, but what you do in your bathrobe on your own time is none of my business. I’m not a huge fan of any combat sport, but it turns out I’m even less of a fan of combat sports where you are forbidden from doing anything more violent than slightly agitated hugging. There was a lot of judo





on TV in the opening week, and for every match I saw, the most exciting question was when the official was going to make them tuck their bathrobes back in: “Now? How about now? Wow, it’s really untucked now; he’s got to re-tuck soon. What drama!” One of these days that robe is going to come right off and we’ll all be exposed to judo bollocks. Now that would really be pants.

ARTIST Arnold Shives works with various mediums in his studio. A new retrospective book features some of the best of his alpine paintings.

ARTIST Arnold Shives still takes his sketch book with him when he hikes the North Shore trails. It’s a habit he started when he was just 10 years old. “I enjoyed the outdoors and going hiking, so I’d take a sketch pad along or a small canvas and oil paints,” he recalls. “It was pleasurable for me to commit to paper or canvas or board images, things that I saw, and make these things pleasing to the eye.” Shives started by sketching lakes and trees on small canvases, 12-by-18 inches and smaller. In his teens he expanded his work onto larger canvas, but not before he sold about 80 of his small watercolours and oils by the time he was 15. The buyer was his friend, who was the same age. His friend paid from 25 cents to $2.50 for each piece. That was in the late 1950s. Forty years later, Shives is still painting naturethemed pieces and is especially known for his mountain

landscapes. That motif has its roots in the artist’s love of mountaineering. Although he admits he doesn’t climb many mountains these days, he did in his teens and 20s, and still regularly heads into the North Shore mountains, not far from his North Vancouver home. “My later work in general has tended not so much to be mountains but more nature-based, simply because I’m closer to nature, the forest,” explains Shives. “I’d have to put in some serious time to get into the alpine (now). If I wanted to go up into the alpine either I’d rent a helicopter or I’d spend a few days getting back into that country,” he says with a laugh. Over the years, Shives’ work has expanded to include printmaking and sculpture. “That’s probably my hardest decision: what to work on. I’d like to be working on it all at the same time, including the sculptural pieces, paintings and block prints,” he says. “In a sense for me it isn’t all that different. It’s sort of a natural transition from painting into creating etchings and lino-cut prints and so on. Same imagery, same impulse. It’s just that the restraints of these printmaking

techniques bring out different aspects. That’s what excited me. Not the fact that I can reproduce an image. It was more just the excitement of unveiling or revealing new ideas, new visual ideas and exploration really.” Working in different mediums has been part of his growth as an artist. “As the decades click by one finds that experimentation has taken place. You can’t keep doing the same thing over and over again. I’ve tried different mediums and different techniques, scale: small and large.” Although many things in his life have changed since he painted his first landscapes as a child, the inspiration for his work has mainly stayed the same. “To a surprising degree not that much,” he says when asked how much his inspiration has changed over the years. He says he tries to remember the days when he wandered around the woods as a child with his sketchbook in hand. It was a time when he “had no grand illusions,” he says. See Book page 17

DAYTRIPPING The Right Fit to Help You Stay Fit Living on the North Shore, we have access to an incredible number of recreational opportunities from hiking and water sports to skiing and more. It can be hard to decide where to start. For Paul Zirk and the team at North Vancouver’s Destination Slope and Surf Outfitters, enjoying the outdoors always begins at the same place: your feet.

doing with footwear on, you will do it better with a more accurate fit and that shoes or boots that are too big will in fact cause you more problems as things stretch.”

We are different in our approach to people with problem feet

“The most important thing we do for people is alter the shape of boots and shoes and provide better insoles to improve the fit of footwear for any kind of terrain they might encounter,” says Paul. “Our fit philosophy is driven by having the footwear be very full in the mid-foot area and under the arches so that you have more direct control over what happens under your feet when terrain changes.” It’s a philosophy that they back up with specialized knowledge and equipment.

“We accomplish this with specialized tools that allow us to bend your boots for problem bones and take away the risk of blisters while keeping the key areas of the foot snug and stable. We believe that whatever you are

We Custom Fit Hiking Boots, Too!

Vancouver’s Favourite Custom Bootfitters

It’s a different perspective that gives people with problem feet a chance to get out and enjoy the outdoors. “We are different in our approach to people with problem feet. We are very concerned that things work properly for whatever purpose you have in mind”

As well as their commitment to properly fitting footwear, Destination has been a go-to source for equipment and accessories that help you enjoy the outdoors for over 28 years..

Band in indie battle Jen St. Denis

Friday, Saturday, Sunday, August 10 August 11 August 12 2p.m.-9 p.m. 11 a.m.-9 p.m 11 a.m.-9 p.m

A pair of hardworking Vancouver musicians are headed to bootcamp at the end of August.

Pacific Arbour Group Show The Pacific Arbour Group Show is a juried exhibition of crossmedia artworks from established and emerging local artists. Visit the Silk Purse Gallery and the West Vancouver Memorial Library at any point during the festival to see works by some of the North Shore’s premier artistic talents. All works are available for sale with all proceeds going towards supporting the artists and the Harmony Arts Festival.

Scott Perrie and Jeremy Breaks, who make up the band Redgy Blackout, won’t be crawling through the mud or doing push-ups, but it’s possible a banjo duel may break out. This bootcamp will be filled with other indie musicians who are all contestants in the Peak Performance Project, a contest run by radio station 100.5 The Peak. “It’s been a huge learning experience for us, and really, really positive,” said Perrie, reached by phone at Greenhouse Studios in East Vancouver. “It really makes you look at your career and where you’re at, and then where you can grow, where you can be better.” This is the second year the group has been chosen to compete with 19 other artists, picked from hundreds of entries from across the province. At stake is exposure, radio play and a top prize of $100,500. Along the way, the competing bands are critiqued and given advice about how to make it in the music business.

Perrie and Breaks, who play at Concerts in the Square in North Vancouver on Aug. 18, are proof positive that in the Canadian music scene, it takes hard work and ingenuity to make a go of it. Both play in other bands: Perrie in “a couple of cover bands — we do the weddings and casinos,” and Breaks in the alt-country group Dallas Smith, where he plays the banjo. Perrie also picks up acting gigs and busks at Granville Island in the summer. “I feel pretty lucky at times, when I look back at the last few years for sure, being able to essentially support myself through my art, through theatre, through music,” said Perrie. “Because it’s really tough.” The pair has played as Redgy Blackout for six years. They’ve brought together their different musical backgrounds to create their sound, a mix of pop, folk and rock. Perrie describes himself as a choir boy from Coquitlam who played the guitar, trumpet and piano throughout high school. Breaks was influenced by heavy metal and had already played in a bunch of bands in his hometown of Prince George. “It was interesting when he and I came

“An artist can be carried away by a feeling of selfimportance, which it seems to me is contrary to the whole thing,” he adds. “It’s more a question of enjoying doing it and then the pleasure itself inspires a person to do more and do it more often and with more enthusiasm and you start getting better.” Not long ago, Shives bought back the collection of small canvasses he sold to his friend when he was a kid. The friend had fallen on hard financial times and gave the artist a good price on the works. Looking at the early pieces now, Shives says some of them were pretty good. “I see some of the same themes,” he says. It’s not surprising he shares themes with his younger self sincetheolderartiststillregularly hikes into the mountains, sketchbook in hand. “That’s always a source of

ideas for me. Very few of these sketches actually end up as finished works, but I still regard it as an important component of my way of operating as an artist. If nothing else just eye-hand co-ordination. It keeps that working,” he says with a laugh. A number of Shives’ bestknown mountain-themed paintings have recently been collected into a retrospective book called Alpine Anatomy: The Mountain Art of Arnold Shives. To coincide with the book launch, Simon Fraser University’s Teck Gallery is featuring a small exhibition of Shives’ prints on loan from the Burnaby Art Gallery until Aug. 30. The book is available at MacLeod’s Books on Pender Street in Vancouver; online at, and is slated to be available in more stores in the near future.

PATRICIA O’Callaghan boasts a diverse repertoire. Her Vancouver show Broken Hearts & Madmen is a collaboration with the Gryphon Trio.

Singer’s vocal style suits different sounds ■ Broken Hearts & Madmen: Gryphon Trio with Patricia O’Callaghan, Thursday, Aug. 16, 8 p.m. at the Orpheum Annex, 823 Seymour St., Vancouver, part of MusicFest Vancouver (Aug. 10-19). Tickets ($34/$39) and info:

Erin McPhee

PATRICIA O’Callaghan’s vocal style is impossible to sum up in a word. Soprano, cabaret, world, pop or operatic, each term is applicable to the genre-defying songstress whose appetite for diverse repertoire knows no bounds. “My business card says I’m a ‘singer of songs,’” the Toronto-based performing artist says, when the question of how best to define her voice is posed. O’Callaghan goes on to say she’s more comfortable describing her sound in the context of the music she’s performing. For example, if it’s a classical piece, then she sings in a classical fashion, and if it’s a pop song then she sings in a pop fashion, etc. “I just see it all as music. There really is no difference between all of the genres, harmonically and melodically. It’s just a matter of what context

you put it in, what arrangements you give to it, what instruments are backing it up. That’s sort of what defines the genre of it. I’m interested in many different genres and that’s how you learn and grow as a musician and I kind of think I’d be bored if I just did one thing. I really like the variety and the diversity of what I get to do,” she says. This widespread interest is clearly evident in her discography, including her two latest works — one a collaboration with a well-known Canadian chamber music trio, and the other, a tribute to one of Canada’s finest songwriters — both released last year. O’Callaghan is set to bring her unique vocal stylings to the Lower Mainland next week when she’ll make her MusicFest Vancouver debut. Her Aug. 16 performance, Broken Hearts & Madmen, takes its name from her 2011 collaboration with the Gryphon Trio, who will also be featured. The performance is part of the festival’s Industrial Alliance MusicFest Flavours Series. O’Callaghan met the members of the trio — cellist Roman Borys, pianist Jamie Parker and violinist Annalee Patipatanakoon — some 10 years ago, through their involvement in Constantinople, a multidisciplinary music theatre work that they’ve toured internationally. “Roman approached me with this idea and we See New page 20

compiled the repertoire more or less together,” says O’Callaghan of Broken Hearts & Madmen. The record features a diverse arrayofsongsbyartists,including Nick Drake, Laurie Anderson, Los Lobos, Astor Piazzolla and Elvis Costello. O’Callaghan fully enjoys performing them, despite how challenging the arrangements are at times, as well as the subject matter. “They’re really emotional songs for sure. . . . Some of them are songs that I’ve sung before, but mostly not. It’s always great to get your voice around new repertoire,” she says. Broken Hearts & Madmen also features songs in different languages, including Spanish, which is her favourite to sing in. The Gryphon Trio have two other MusicFest performances scheduled, including: Beethoven’s Best, Wednesday, Aug. 15 and Czech Masters Aug. 17, both at 10:30 a.m. at Christ Church Cathedral. O’Callaghan’s second 2011 release is titled Matador: The Songs of Leonard Cohen. She’s long been drawn to his works and has included covers on previous records. “Coming from the classical world as I did, I just had this idea that I wanted to meld the worlds of classical music and pop somehow,” she says. Since the beginning of her career, she’s been interested in composers like Erik Satie and Kurt Weill who, she says, found a means of marrying high and low art. Interested in doing this herself, she came across Cohen and added “Take This Waltz,” inspired by a Lorca poem, and “Hallelujah” to her repertoire and is happy now to have finally released an entire album devoted to the troubadour. Matador features songs including “The Gypsy’s Wife,” “Dance Me To The End Of Love” and “Joan of Arc.” “They’re all just such great songs and I had an amazing band in the studio,” says O’Callaghan. “It was a real pleasure to record, and also doing the live shows is a real pleasure. They’re just glorious songs.” Matador also features a number of guest singers, including Steven Page, Mike Ross and Sienna Dahlen. “They’re all singers that I reallyadmire,”saysO’Callaghan. “And I think they add a lot to the album.”

Beauty treat tames the dragons Jen St. Denis

BEFORE stepping into the Dragons’ Den, North Vancouver inventor Patricia Truter was nervous.

But her jitters were replaced with excitement when she realized the potential investors were as thrilled about her product as she was. Truter appeared on the CBC reality TV show in May to promote her invention, a hightech version of cucumber slices called eyeSlices. The show will air in September. Before going on camera, Truter had developed a plan to deal with the prickliest of the dragons. “We thought that Kevin O’Leary was going to be the most difficult,” said Truter. “We were working with the producers to get him on the massage table and we got the beautician . . . to give him a shoulder massage and put (the eyeSlices) on his eyes to keep him busy.” It turned out the ruse wasn’t really necessary; all five dragons loved the product. But until the show goes to air, Truter can’t reveal whether the investors actually decided to put money into the invention. Truter developed the beauty product while on a research project in South Africa. The materials scientist was working on a high-tech material to treat burn wounds when she realized the cooling cryogel she had created could also be used to treat a more

common problem: puffy eyes and dark circles. “It improves circulation because of the natural cooling effect, so your blood flows a little bit more and removes all the toxins,” said Truter. In addition to reducing dark circles and puffiness, the product helps with red eyes and irritated skin caused by allergies, said Truter. The eyeSlices can be reused up to 10 times, and don’t need to be refrigerated to create the cooling effect. Truter, who is originally from South Africa, teamed up with entrepreneur Kerryne Krause to market and distribute the product in South Africa, Dubai, Europe, England, Israel and at the Four Seasons Hotel New York. But to stock store shelves in Canada and the United States, Truter and Krause need the help of the dragons. They hope to supply eyeSlices to spas and large retail stores. Truter trained as a scientist, but business is in her blood. In South Africa, her father owned a construction company and her mother ran a chain of grocery stores. After a stint at a Vancouver pharmaceutical company, Truter is now working on eyeSlices full time. The single mother of two daughters came to Canada seven years ago seeking a safe home for her family. While she initially picked the Vancouver area for its warmer climate, North Vancouver now truly feels like home to Truter. “We’ve fit in so well,” she said. “I feel almost like I’ve represented North Vancouver in the Dragons’ Den.”

Squatters’ shacks now a work of art Jen St. Denis

TO the people who once lived there, including one of British Columbia’s best-known writers, the rustic cabins built on stilts on North Vancouver’s Maplewood mudflats were paradise.

Malcolm Lowry, the author of the novel Under the Volcano, lived on the mudflats during the 1940s and ’50s and wrote about the experience in novels and short stories. Now a piece of art inspired by the squatters’ shacks, which stood until 1971, has found a permanent home near where the structures once stood. World-renowned artist Ken Lum (Monument to East Vancouver) was commissioned to create the piece, called From shangri-la to shangri-la, by the Vancouver Art Gallery. The work was originally displayed outside the Shangri-La Hotel during the 2010 Olympics. Lum, who was born and raised in Vancouver and knew of the shacks from Lowry’s writing, wanted to make people think about a different kind of paradise. “On the occasion where you have a lot of dialogue about the future of the city, but almost all of it in a kind of rah-rah, optimistic voice, I thought it might be interesting to step back from that kind of positive exuberance,” said Lum. “And just historicize what we’ve lost in terms of possible alternative ways of thinking about the city, as opposed to just gleaming towers.” The replica shacks were the last thing District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton expected to encounter as he walked down Georgia Street one day in 2010, especially in front of the 70-story Shangri-La building. “I recognized one of them right away. I have books on Lowry and I recognized it through old photographs of his shack,” said Walton. “The other two I recognized through association. I realized I’d been in one of them a couple of times.” As a university student in the early ’70s, Walton had gone to parties at the shacks and had gotten to know some of the more permanent residents, including an elderly man, families with small children and several artists, all “just living a simple lifestyle.” He also remembers how the shacks met their end. They were burned to the ground in 1971 in an effort by the district council of the time to prepare the way to build a shopping mall on the site. But a growing awareness of environmental issues prevented that plan from coming to pass, and today the Maplewood Conservation Area is a protected bird sanctuary. Walton asked Ian Forsyth, the director of the district’s arts office, to contact Lum to find out where the art piece would go after the exhibition was over. Even though a private collector had expressed interest in buying From shangri-la to shangri-la, Lum readily agreed to gift the artwork to the District of North Vancouver. “I just said to the other collector ‘I have to do this.’ I was very open to North Vancouver having it,” said Lum, who said the potential buyer had offered what would have amounted to “a nice little mortgage.” For two years, the piece sat in a corner of a works yard while the district searched for a suitable place to display the artwork. The shacks, which are one-third the size of the actual dwellings, now sit at the edge of a tidal slough, set back from the shoreline where the original structures once stood. Plaques telling the story of the mudflat homes will be added to the site. From the late 1800s through to the 1950s, squatting was a way of life in many parts of what is now the District of

ARTIST Kevin Lum visits his installation From shangri-la to shangri-la, which features replicas of North Vancouver squatters’ shacks at one-third the actual size. The exhibit is on display at Maplewood Conservation Area. North Vancouver, including Cates Park/Whey-ah Wichen said Walton. The squatting population was especially high during the Great Depression. But with increased development of the once-rural area and the need to provide roads and utilities to a growing population, the district had less tolerance for people who wanted to live for free. By the 1950s, the push was on to get the squatters out.


“I think it’s a part of our history that’s very unique to the district, and it’s only through the writings of Lowry and the (National Film Board) film Mudflats Living that the story’s told,” said Walton. “Having these shacks back is going to be a visible (manifestation) of our history.” From shangri-la to shangri-la is on permanent display at the Maplewood Conservation Area.

Renner is a suitable replacement

■ The Bourne Legacy. Directed and co-written by Tony Gilroy. Starring Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz. Rating: 6 (out of 10).

Julie Crawford Contributing writer


READY to be Bourne again? It means letting go of some old friends (Julia Stiles, in the first three films) and accepting a new power into your life (that’d be Jeremy Renner) while waiting for the possible second coming of Matt Damon. Damon’s no dummy: he bowed out of the franchise while it was still relatively hot, in deference to director Paul Greengrass and to pursue other projects. But Legacy’s script leaves plenty of room for him to re-enter the picture should this fourth instalment prove a hit. Based on last winter’s frosty reviews of We Bought a Zoo, Damon might want to seriously consider adding a few more stamps to Jason Bourne’s passport. Renner is a more than suitable replacement, though setting the story within six photo courtesy Universal Pictures weeks of Bourne turning up in Moscow (and with many of the JEREMY Renner takes over the Bourne franchise from Matt Damon in The Bourne Legacy. The film picks up other films’ supporting players) where The Bourne Ultimatum left off, and leaves the door open for Damon to return. means that we’re looking These, we learn, are what keeps him smarter and he’s been sent to do an Amazing Race-type training expectantly for Damon around every corner.

Breaks’ father, who owns a music store and has been known to throw the odd free amp the band’s way, was also an influence. “(Breaks is) influenced by so many types of music,” said Perrie. “His dad was really into the blues and old rock, and his dad’s a really great guitar player.” The band has released two albums, 2009’s Meet You on the Other Side and a self-titled record in 2011. Perrie and Brooks

are now working on two new songs they plan to release together as a double single. “One of them is super, super summery and upbeat and fun . . in the pop-rock genre, and the other one has a more rootsy element to it for sure,” said Perrie. The band will go on tour this fall with Vancouver singersongwriter Christa Couture. Redgy Blackout plays at 9 p.m., Aug. 18 at Concerts in the Square at Lonsdale Quay. Starting at 4 p.m., the lineup includes Badgerchild, Ben Sigston, Georgia Murray, Elaine ‘Lil Bit’ Shephard and Kyprios.

Plenty of room left for sequel

From page 24

shutting down all Treadstone-related secret ops because “This CIA mess has metastasized into other programs,” according to an omnipotent government suit called Eric Byer (Edward Norton), and “shutting down” is a euphemism for killing off all nine of the program’s participants, one by one. There’s also a related workplace incident, after which Dr. Marta Shearling (Rachel Weisz) finds herself a target too. Cross initially contacts Marta for more of those magic meds but stays because he feels that he has to protect her, and because their paths have crossed 13 times previously, which is apparently the longest relationship Cross has had with a woman. Cross won’t die without the pills, but there’s a rather poignant reason he needs them. But poignant or no, the quest for drugs or a viral panacea proves flimsy against, say, Jason Bourne’s need to

plow through his amnesia to rediscover his past, and seek revenge for having been used as a governmental guinea pig. Cross seems to have no such need to get to the truth; he just doesn’t want to lose any more IQ points. Beta programs, the JSOC: it’s all a little muddy for the first third of the film, during the laborious setup, while various agencies finger-point and gaze into computer screens. (And we get brief glimpses of David Strathairn, Joan Allen, Scott Glenn and Albert Finney). Weisz livens things up, even if her job consists of looking pliable, sweaty and bewildered most of the time. Renner draws on some of his Hurt Locker intensity for his role, though we wish he had more soul-searching and less motorcycling on the streets of Manila (a key but overlong action sequence). We believe in their slow-cooking romance, but not in the rushed ending, which resolves little but leaves plenty of sequel room.

A rare legend prowls the West Van roads Brendan McAleer Contributing Writer

IT’S a warm afternoon in West Vancouver, bright and sunny.

THE Scion FR-S, developed jointly between Toyota and Subaru, received a lot of pre-release praise. It may not live up to all the hype but it has enough going for it to challenge its sports coupe competition.

2013 Scion FR-S

Sporty Scion goes for gold EVERY Olympian carries the weight of their country’s hopes and dreams on their shoulders, but none more so than the “goldmedal hopefuls.” While I cheer on all our athletes with enthusiasm, the pressure they must feel beggars belief. Sometimes, that pressure is a crystallizing force, producing a brilliant performance. Other times, the expectation is truly too great, and the audience groans over a fourth-place finish, not realizing what a huge accomplishment even making it to the competition is.

Like most modern cars, a gaping maw is part of the front grille treatment and while the car was purportedly shaped to echo the 1960s Toyota 2000GT (you might remember one of these appearing in You Only Live Twice), it’s quite a busy design. Still, folks who find the Mazda MX-5’s friendly face too cutesy will no doubt warm to the Scion’s fightingfish demeanour. Twin exhausts around back stand ready to trumpet your passing to the world, and are encompassed within a black surround that mimics the air diffuser of a racecar. Standard 17-inch alloys are the only wheels on offer, and

you if you stumble. So it is with this car, the 2013 Scion FR-S. Part of a pair of cars developed jointly by Subaru and Toyota (Scion is Toyota’s youth-oriented sub-brand), this machine has been shown in concept form multiple times; teased and hyped and praised with flowery prose in long-lead pre-launches. Well, here in my hands, I have the keys to one. Let’s run it through the decathlon and find out if we’ve got a medallist — or not. Design Right off the bat, the FR-S certainly looks the part. With strong, angular creases and flared-out quarters, it’d put you in mind of a teeny-tiny Maserati Gran Sport coupe.




*Includes oil & filter. Taxes extra.*Most vehicles.





- SINCE 1959 -




Traffic is busy, the hum and honk of people flitting about their business, the dull background white-noise of the modern automobile. Slowly, decibel by decibel, a bassier thrum begins to build. My ears perk up: the past is approaching. Amongst the dark, hulking luxo-SUVs that are part of the everyday landscape of our driving lives, a pale and dainty shape flits into view. Its flanks are lettered in Kelly-green script, the centres of its fivespoke Fuchs wheels painted to match. There is a minimum of chrome, merely the startling whiteness of its paintwork. It is as rare and as beautiful a sighting in these surroundings as spotting a Kermode spirit bear deep in some coastal rainforest. This car is, some purists would say, the best, most iconic 911 ever built: the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS. Let’s go for a ride. Some time ago, a reader took me to task for suggesting that the 1970s were a wasteland, automotively speaking (well, that and the ‘orrible music too). He pointed out his BMW 2002 as an example; while American manufacturers were building some fairly suspect machines, the Europeans were starting to bring over cars that would become legendary, or at least well-loved. The 2.7 RS is one such machine, and we have the death of a racing legend See Classic page 42

Classic Porsche usually only seen in magazines From page 41

to thank for it. 1972 brought rule changes that put a stop to Porsche’s 917 racecar, a 12-cylinder, 580 horsepower juggernaut. This insanely dangerous (drivers would pray for breakdowns), incredibly brittle (and they’d get them), absolute beast of a machine was seemingly unstoppable. Finally though, Beowulf strangled Grendel with miles of red tape and the game changed. Porsche would eventually send the 917 off to Can-Am, where it would be cranked up to 1,500 h.p. and win pretty much everything. In Europe, the rules now favoured Formula 1 teams like Ferrari — developing a new car would be too costly for Porsche. Luckily, a new series opened up, one that had a bit more relevance to actual road-going cars. The European GT Championship was open to the 911, and this time, the rules would actually help. Homologation required Porsche to build at least 500 cars that were the same specification as their racing effort. Surprised by huge demand, they would eventually make 1,500. To build the RS, Porsche took its 911S — already a rally winner in Monte Carlo and France — and whittled down the weight using trickery like thin-plate steel and fibreglass. All luxuries were removed, suspension was stiffened, larger rear tires were fitted (all 911s are staggered-fitment these days, but this was a first for Porsche), and that iconic “ducktail” was added for highspeed stability. Naturally, putting the 911 on a diet helped, but it needed more muscle as well. The 2.4-litre engine was bored out to 2.7-litre, coated with a friction-reducing material, eventually developing a respectable (for the time) 210 h.p. The net result of all these enhancements is one of the greatest sportscars ever built. While horsepower levels seem modest compared to even a modern mid-size family sedan, the RS (for RennSport or “Racing Speed”) is greater than the sum of its parts. This one belongs to West Vancouver resident Ryan Chang. It is a recent acquisition for him, and he is only too happy to show off his pride and joy. Would I like to go for a ride? Oh yes please. Away we go, wending through the thinning traffic of Ambleside in a westerly direction. Like all 911s, the RS is relatively easy to drive, with an upright driving position that makes the stopand-go of modern traffic a relative doddle.

But you’d never mistake it for a modern car. Ryan has to work a bit, dealing with classic 911 quirks like the off-set pedals and manual choke. The thinness of the body panels transmit every nuance of the air rushing past the car; there is not a micron of sound-deadening material and the wheel arches are entirely exposed — were you to crouch down, you could see the exposed red of the horn assembly in the front left wheel-well. Divided boulevard gives way to winding road out past Lighthouse Park, and the shunt and flow of commuters dries up. Ryan quickens his pace and the 911 seems to leap forward eagerly. It’s twitchy, this car, set up for ’70s-style racing when electronic nannies like traction control were an Orwellian nightmare, rather than a safety blanket for distracted drivers. Next to the RS, regular traffic seems as plodding as the freighters that sleep patiently in Burrard inlet. We aren’t speeding, but we are speeding along: like a motorcycle, there’s nothing to here to isolate you from the sensations of motion. No wonder this lovely bit of road is thronged with cyclists on a Sunday morning. It loops upwards past the marina, as narrow as an English B-road, nothing between you and the Pacific but a waist-high wall. The view is spectacular, the soundtrack doubly so: that bored-out, air-cooled flat-six whirring and snarling its unique battlecry, even at low r.p.m. And then, back to reality. Clots of traffic begin to form. The road straightens out, becomes safe and sane instead of seductively winding. Back on the boulevard in Ambleside, some dozy driver changes lanes without signalling and nearly takes us both out. A quick brake and we’re fine, but perhaps this is a good time to talk about the cost of these magic moments. This particular 911 is more expensive than any modern variation currently on sale. It’s got a bigger price tag than a Lamborghini Aventador and — unlike the Lambo, of which 1,000 have been sold in the last 15 months — is utterly irreplaceable. Driving this car in day-to-day traffic is not unlike walking around carrying a priceless oil-painting. Sure, damage can be repaired, but the value in this particular RS is in its numbersmatching, factory-fresh appearance. The gearbox cannot be repaired if Ryan misses a shift. Due to specialized coatings, the engine can’t be rebuilt. Checking the oil is a time-consuming process that must be

THIS 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS, owned by a West Vancouverite, draws stares from Porsche fans who know how rare it is to see one in person. done on perfectly level ground, and the car must be started and run regularly. Most collectors never let their RS’s out of storage, and those that do often have a second engine built and swapped in to preserve the factory original. Ryan doesn’t. He drives his car, and people who know what it is turn and stare as they catch a glimpse of something they thought they’d never see outside of a magazine. Really, this car is artwork you can drive and needs to be shared. We park beside my tester for the week, the latest iteration of the 911, a 991. It’s like seeing Audrey Hepburn standing next to Pamela Anderson. What a shame that cars like the RS are no longer built. What a joy that a car like this is still on the road.

Excellent racing seats highlight of spartan interior From page 41 they look good from the side. Catch the FR-S’s rear profile, and you’ll get a surprise at how skinny these tires look: just 215-series in width. And wait, Michelin Primacy? Yep, the FR-S is shod in the same rubber that’s available on the Japanese-spec Prius. A bit unusual for a sports car, but a little more on that later. Environment Clambering into the FR-S requires a bit of finesse, it being so low, and once inside, it’s immediately time

WITH strong, angular creases and an aggressive front grille the FR-S certainly looks the part of a speedy sports coupe.

to start talking about price point. This car is inexpensive at $25,990, and that means something’s gotta give. Where they haven’t skimped: the seats, which are excellent, perhaps the best thrones I’ve sat in outside of a Porsche product. Comfortably squeezed in these race-bolstered buckets, take a good gander around at the plain-Jane interior — but it’s not all bad. In fact, it’s a bit Porschelike here as well, in the sense of the earlier, spartan interiors. The small-diameter (365 mm) steering wheel is blissfully devoid of buttons. The dash is plain black without affected fake carbonfibre trim. A centrally mounted rev counter dominates the instrument panel with a digital readout displaying forward velocity. Everything is uncluttered and simple, although the optional Pioneer sound system is a bit of an afterthought. It looks like an aftermarket head-unit, but doesn’t really perform like one. Unlike some competitors, the FR-S has usable rear seats. Well, I should say “usable”: adult passengers will only fit comfortably if they’ve been minced into a fine pâté. However, kids in booster seats will fit, pleasing Moms and Dads who need their sportscar to suit dual purposes, and the seats do fold down to create more hauling capacity. Keep them up, and you’ll find that trunk really quite small. Performance So far, the FR-S has made compromises on tire size, interior capacity and in-cabin materials. The payoff must surely be in the drive, no? It is. While there’s just 200 horsepower on offer from the 2.0-litre boxer engine (Subaru’s blueprint with Toyota’s direct injection

system), the FR-S makes the most of it with a feathery curb weight of just 1,255 kilograms. With the engine fired up and the traction control in sport, the FR-S leaps off the line and . . . wait, is that all? Modern family sedans now have close to 300 h.p., and turbo-charged hot-hatchbacks have torque to match their peak power. With just 151 foot-pounds of torque on tap, the FR-S is going to require some mental readjustment. Some folks are going to come away from a test drive feeling nonplussed that the sporty look seems at a disconnect with the driving experience. But persevere. Get off the traffic-snarled roads and let the FR-S gallop a little. It’s not happy in the midrange — this car demands to be driven and driven hard. Here’s where those skinny tires actually become a feature rather than a liability. There’s a tremendous amount of grip with the low centre of gravity provided by the low-slung flat-four engine, and the reduced amount of rubber allows the FR-S to pivot a bit rather than simply sticking constantly. Track-day addicts are going to want to slap on stickier rubber (and bolt-on brake upgrades would not go amiss either), but those interested in a fun-to-drive car that can occasionally pinch-hit to pick up the groceries are going to appreciate the FRS’s focus on outright driving pleasure over maximum grip. The electric power steering is great, though perhaps not quite as good as mechanically assisted varieties, and the sixspeed manual is quick shifting and easy to operate. Pretty much the only mechanical fault to be found with the controls is the long clutch See FR-S page 45

THE trunk in the FR-S is small but, unlike some of its competitors, the rear seats are usable for passengers and they also fold down to create more cargo space.

FR-S at its best when driven hard on the open road

From page 44

travel and high engagement point — fixes for this issue may already be on the way. Features Scion doesn’t sucker you with a low base price and then drive up the MSRP with options packages; rather, the basic car is set up with everything you need. Choose the upgraded Pioneer Audio for $515 (or not), and all that’s left to do is pick the six-speed manual or the paddle-shifted six-speed auto ($1,180). Pick your colour? Well, maybe. Due to frenzied anticipation, the FR-S is in short supply (its Subaru cousin is reportedly sold out for the year). Be patient or don’t be fussy. Fuel economy figures are very good at 9.6 litres/100 kilometres city and 6.6 l/100 km highway for the manual — the automatic is about 10 per cent better. Realistically though, flog this car like it’s meant to be driven and not only will you burn more gas, but the FR-S requires premium only. Still, after a week’s hard shifting, my tester returned reasonable numbers, and not a drop was begrudged, considering how much fun each kilometre had been. Green light

Balanced feel; nimble, rear-drive handling; moderate level of practicality. Stop sign Low torque engine requires maximum revs; still too small for some dailydriving duties; quite noisy at times. The checkered flag Might not quite be the sports car hero we’ve all been anticipating, but certainly finishes on the podium. Competitors Mazda MX-5 ($29,145) Mazda currently makes the benchmark for low-powered driving fun, and they’ve been doing so for more than two decades now. As such, the formula’s honed to nearperfection. Drive a MX-5 (always assuming you can fit) and you’ll find it a delight in every way. Stop by to pick up your friends and . . . oh wait. You can’t. The MX-5 is a great machine but, and here’s the rub, it’s really best as a second car, or a toy for those who don’t really have the need for wheels. The FR-S might not be quite as sweet to drive, but it’s faster and slightly more practical. Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T ($26,499) When I was a kid,

Fun trumps function in sports coupe class From page 45

Hyundais were cheap and somewhat miserable. Now you could argue they’re the go-to brand, always forging forward, blending style and tech (Kia too). While the old Genesis coupe was a decent car, it was quite heavy and only the V-6 option really cut the mustard. Suddenly, the turbo option now boasts a healthy 274 h.p., and can be run on regular fuel (with a reduced output of 260 h.p.), for pennypinching types. It’s still heavy, but it’s got space that the FR-S doesn’t, with proper-sized rear seats, and a much more comfortable, grown-up ride. On paper, it’s more expensive if you buy the R-Spec sports model — it’d be worth your while to check for incentives and better rates before conceding this — but it’s a strong contender in the bang-for-your-buck race.
