17 18 School district drives immigrant student bus tours Altar Boyz back in town Courting the Paralympics

Nearly 600 attend orientation Cheryl Rossi Staff writer

New immigrant students such as Marina Silva, 13, attended a bus tour of Vancouver.

Justin Yang wants his 13year-old son Bob to do well in school. But Bob, who may attend Prince of Wales secondary in September, and his father are recent immigrants from China with little knowledge of their new city. That’s why they joined hundreds of newcomers to Canada Monday to cram into stuffy classrooms at John Oliver secondary to munch on sandwiches while settlement workers who work in Vancouver schools prepared them for bus tours of the city’s neighbourhoods. It’s the first year the Vancouver school district’s reception and placement cenphoto Jason Lang tre offered the tours as part

of its orientation for new immigrant and refugee parents and students keen to understand the city’s school system and culture. “I want to know what the education system is about. I want to know how we can [prepare] for his good education,” said Yang. His son has only been in town for a month and Yang returns to China for the month of September. “Because his mother, her English is not well, I am worried about him,” Yang said. The Yangs were two of the nearly 600 newcomer caregivers and students who attended the annual orientation, which for the past five years has offered advice at the start of the school year to immigrant and refugee families.

Octogenarian volunteer sues city hall over $2,500 reward Booklet says honourees ‘receive a cash reward’ Kalyeena Makortoff

Contributing writer

Roy Sumpter is a busy Vancouver volunteer who’s looking for his pay out. The 81-year-old is suing the city for a cash prize he said he never received. Sumpter won the 2011 Mayor’s Arts Awards for Volunteer-

ism last fall, receiving a certificate and a book of poems from the city. But Sumpter said one things was missing—a $2,500 cheque. “I’ve been asked this many times— “Roy, what did you do with that $2,500? I say, no, I haven’t got it.” Sumpter wasn’t expecting a cash award until he checked the award ceremony booklet. The

second page of the booklet stated that, “Honourees and emerging artists each receive a cash reward from the City of Vancouver in the amount of $2,500.” At that point he wondered why he wasn’t offered one of the prize envelopes. “When I got home and really read this I said I’m part of this group. I’m entitled to that.”

Sumpter said he contacted the city and was told the pamphlet wording had been a mistake. Apparently the volunteer category, along with other Support of the Arts awards like philanthropy, has been exempt from the cash prize since 2008. The City of Vancouver would not comment as the matter is be-

fore the courts, according to its communications office. But according to the City of Vancouver’s website, only honouree “artists” and emerging artists receive a cash award. Those recognized in categories like volunteerism and philanthropy receive a certificate of recognition, without the money. See SUMPTER on page 4

Sumpter says city lawyer admits ‘there was a mistake’

Continued from page 1 But Sumpter said that even if it was a printing mistake for the pamphlet, he still wants his award. “They do admit, in fact, from their own lawyer, that there was a mistake and misunderstanding in that brochure,” said Sumpter. “They’re a confused group, they don’t know what the hell they’re doing, frankly. So I just took it upon myself.” He explained that he’s not working with any other honourees from this year or past award recipients. Though he’s working independently, Sumpter said he may contact others if he wins his battle with the city, which he said will go before a judge next month. He’ll conduct his own legal work. For now, he’ll continue his volunteer work around the city. Sumpter volunteers with 25 different organizations in Vancouver, often as security staff or a greeter at their galas. His resumé boasts work with the Vancouver Playhouse, Fringe Festival, B.C. Children’s Hospital, United Way, and Canadian Cancer Association, to name

“THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THEY’RE DOING.” Roy Sumpter

a few. On average, Sumpter said he spends three days a week working crowds around Vancouver. He has already booked 10 days next month for work with the Vancouver Film Festival. “I go to galas, I mix with people and that’s my profession,” Sumpter said. “I’m not making money on it, believe me I’m not.” Sumpter’s bright orange business card contains the motto, “Volunteers are unpaid not because they are worthless but because they are priceless.” So why bother to go after cash for free work? “Why ask?” Sumpter said. “Because they offered it.” kalyeena@gmail.com Twitter: @kalyeena

Workers on buses spoke several languages including Mandarin

Continued from page 1 Schools are one of the few institutions with which newcomer families with school-aged children have continuous contact, noted Jerry Wu, manager of settlement workers in schools. “So, I’m sorry to say, they become a captive audience,” Wu said with a laugh. “It’s good for them, it’s good for the school so we be able to help the family getting more informa-

tion, more empowered so in the process of adjusting and settling in the new country and new schools faster, better. Once they’re able to do that, then they have the power to support the children to focus on learning in schools, so that achieves two goals.” Adults and teens filed down narrow aisles of 14 orange school buses to tour the area of the city in which they live. Sites they

saw included walk-in clinics, libraries, community centres and neighbourhood houses. Settlement workers on the buses gave them a running tour in Mandarin, the first language of nearly half of the participants, Cantonese, Filipino/Tagalog, Vietnamese, Punjabi, Spanish and English. Workers who speak languages that include Arabic, Russian and Hindi also at-

tended the orientation. The school board sees registrants from at least 30 countries throughout the school year, according to Wu. The participants learned about English as a second language programs in schools, school system myths and facts and ways parents can help students succeed before the bus tour. Twenty-four students who had immigrated with-

in the last three years and trained to be peer mentors were to lead students in a second day of orientation activities that included how to use a locker and pack a lunch, selecting courses, school culture and pressures and how to deal with them. “Also we can’t avoid that there is bullying in the schools and there is some racism in the schools, how you can recognize that,

how you deal with that and how you can build an alliance to help yourself,” Wu said. Students meet peer mentors from their prospective school or one that’s close by on the third day of orientation. crossi@vancourier.com Twitter: @Cheryl_Rossi See related photo gallery at

Unitarian Church urges members to follow suit

Church dumps Enbridge stock in pipeline protest Kalyeena Makortoff

Contributing Writer

Faith and pipeline investment aren’t a good mix for the Unitarian Church of Vancouver. The church at 949 West 49th Ave. is divesting Enbridge stocks from its portfolios and is urging its 400 members to do the same— a transition which has gotten easier now that credit union Vancity has removed the pipeline company from its socially responsible investments. “We’ve been opposing fossil fuel use since 1993 because of increasing global warming,” said Karl Perrin, chair of the Unitarian Church of Vancouver’s Environment Committee, in an email to the Courier. “When we first heard about Northern Gateway and Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion years ago, we knew we would oppose expansion of tar sands pipelines, especially crossing B.C.” When Vancity announced last week that it would divest Enbridge holdings from its socially responsible investments for not meeting environmental, social and governance criteria, the

Karl Perrin, chair of the Unitarian Church of Vancouver’s Environment Committee, cites an increase of global warming. photo Jason Lang wanting to put pressure on Enbridge from the inside. Vancity’s divestment move now means the church won’t have to find alternative investments on its own. Taylor said the Unitarian Church of Vancouver holds $100,000 in ethical funds with Vancity. The divestment of Meritas Jantzi funds amounted to

church was relieved. John Taylor, chair of the church’s investment committee, explained that the church had divested holdings in Meritas Jantzi social index funds in July because they included Enbridge stocks. But the move to divest in Vancity’s SRI’s was slowed, as there was active communication about

$60,000. “I had mixed emotions,” said Taylor in reaction to hearing Vancity’s announcement. “Sad that we were admitting defeat in convincing them [Enbridge] not to build the pipeline, and somewhat elated that Vancity had made the decision, would go out and stand up for our principles.” A Vancity representative was not available for comment by press time. The church’s resolution to oppose pipeline construction by Enbridge and expansion by Kinder Morgan was approved in June. “These resolutions are not common,” Perrin said, explaining that the church last divested in Exxon Mobil a few years ago after the company gained a reputation as the worst tar sands exploiter.” Not all religious groups are taking a stand against oil companies, however. Paul Schratz, spokesperson for the Catholic Archdiocese of Vancouver, said that the archdiocese doesn’t get involved in political issues since its members may hold different stances on topics like the Northern Gateway Pipeline. The Anglican Diocese of New Westminster, which covers 71 par-

ishes from the Metro Vancouver Area, Fraser Valley and the Sunshine Coast, will be meeting later this week to look at excluding Enbridge and Kinder Morgan stock from its investment portfolio. Along with divesting its own portfolio of the oil giants, the Unitarian Church of Vancouver is urging its members to do the same. Perrin said the church isn’t asking members to divulge their personal information with the church, but he guesses that at least 200 members and adherents have Enbridge sock in the SRI mutual funds, “whether they know it or not.” “One of the purposes of the resolution was to make them aware that virtually all SRI mutual funds held Enbridge stock because it was considered ‘the best of a bad lot.’ Their Keystone Kops nonreaction to the Kalamazoo River spill called their good reputation into doubt,” Perrin said. Taylor explained that the investment committee would be available to speak with and advise members on financial changes, and some have taken advantage of the offer. kalyeena@gmail.com Twitter: @kalyeena

Browned off

The political book. A forum for revisionist history and personal feuds. In his new e-book, Towards a New Government in British Columbia, Martyn Brown, former Gordon Campbell chief-of-staff and B.C. Liberal backroomer, adds to that canon of literature while slamming Premier Christy Clark for staining the party brand. “At this point,” writes Brown, “it would take a near miracle for the B.C. Liberals to form the next government.” Brown knows elections. He helped build the B.C. Liberal dynasty, which began in 2001 with a 77-out-of-79seat Campbell majority. For more than a decade, he whispered advice into Campbell’s ear, helping engineer two more election victories. But despite all of that, Brown may be best remembered for his testimony at the B.C. Rail corruption trial when he couldn’t recall alleged telephone conversations that may have shed light on the murky affair. The trial ended when two Liberal operatives (Dave Basi and Bobby Virk) pleaded

guilty, sparing the Campbell government further damage. Brown continued his advisory role until 2011 when Campbell resigned and Clark was crowned premier. Clark quickly canned Brown and several other Campbell loyalists during a purge of the premier’s office. Brown nabbed a $416,191 severance package and rode off into the sunset. He should write a book.

Correction facility

Speaking of money. Last week in this space, John Cummins, leader of the B.C. Conservative Party, disputed claims by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) that he collects a $102,169 annual pension. “It’s less than what the CTF has made public,” said Cummins, a former federal MP. And he’s right. After the story was published, CTF spokesperson Jordan Bateman called the Courier to correct the record. “He is right,” said Bateman. “When we did the report, there was a glitch.” According to the CTF’s revised figures, this year Cummins will collect $99,768 in pension—$2,401 less than previously claimed. Based on this new number, according to the CTF, Cummins’ lifetime pension total (if he lives to 80) will reach $1.3 million.

Weed wackin’

During summer’s dog days, the legislature falls silent while MLAs “recess” in the sun. But the government machine never sleeps. A recent press release from the

stretch-titled Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations caught my eye. The ministry, in cooperation with something called the Invasive Species Council of British Columbia, has introduced the “Report-a-Weed” app—a free download for smartphones. Here’s how it works. If, when strolling through a field of daisies with your picnic basket of wares, you encounter an unusual plant, whip out your iPhone, snap a photo, access the app and click “submit.” According to the press release, your photo may prompt “follow-up activity” by “regional weed committees” who’ll descend on your daisy field to eliminate the problem. To aid detection and limit false alarms, the app includes a photo library of scary plants such as hoary alyssum, knotweed (and it’s cousin, knapweed), tansy ragwort, field scabious and the infamous giant hogweed. Invasive plants, adds the press release, “have the potential to displace long-established native species and cause significant economic or environmental damage.” Fair enough. But what about other local “invasive species” such as the snakehead fish, the Japanese oyster or that 30pound raccoon who scared the bejesus out of me during a moonlit walk home from the bar? Where’s the app for that? mhasiuk@vancourier.com Twitter: @MarkHasiuk

news have died this summer, if any, but as of the Courier’s press deadline hadn’t received that information. I’ll include it in Friday’s column.

Planting problems

I’ve heard from some readers who say the park board is wasting money by planting young boulevard and street trees without having the budget to water them. When Hillcrest resident Sherry Buium noticed an increasing number of dead or dying young trees in her neighbourhood, she called the city’s 311 line and reported her concerns. The park board puts out a call to residents every summer asking for help in keeping young boulevard trees watered during dry spells. Buium argues if trees, shrubs or gardens are planted in public spaces the city should have a budget and plan to care for them. “Funds are available at the outset of a project, but it appears that there is a lack of funding for ongoing maintenance,” Buium wrote the park board in an email. “I would suggest that unless you intend to properly take care of any new plantings that nothing new is undertaken.” Buium is concerned about a plan to plant an additional 150,000 trees across the city as part of the 2020 Greenest Action

A Dunbar resident is worried about trees along King Edward Boulevard. Plan. As I reported in this column last April, the trees will be planted as part of a plan to make Vancouver the greenest city in the world by 2020. I also heard from Dunbar resident and community activist Terry Slack, who has been going to great lengths to save the dying boulevard trees near his home. Slack says the young trees plant-

ed last year on King Edward Boulevard are starting to show signs of leaf loss stress. Slack sent out a group email reminding Dunbar residents to do their part to keep these trees alive. “I know it’s hard to get water to them with a hose, as cars are up and down the road most of the day,” Slack wrote in the email. “I have decided to use the water

bucket method to water the new small cedar at King Edward Boulevard and Crown Street and it seems to be working well.” The “water bucket” method involves Slack hauling pails of water to the boulevard in the back of his truck. He pours the water directly on to the roots of the trees. I asked the park board for stats on the number of young trees that

This long weekend is the last time lifeguards will be at the city’s beaches and outdoor pools. I have seen that deadline extended in the past when the city was enjoying a particularly warm September, so let’s keep our fingers crossed. But for now, the city’s beaches, outdoor and wading pools, splash parks and Trout Lake are open for swimming until at least Sept. 3. Yes, you heard right. Trout Lake actually opened for swimming this summer after its fecal count dropped to a level considered safe for swimming. After I wrote about Trout Lake being closed to swimmers last year, I received regular emails from a guy who for some reason thought I was responsible for getting it cleaned up. He inundated me with reasons why I should hire him to do just that. I tried to explain I’m a newspaper reporter and not a park board employee or health officer, but apparently that information didn’t compute. Also going on now through the end of the long weekend, Sept. 3, is a deal at Klahowya Village in Stanley Park where visitors can ride the Dream Catcher train allday long for $5. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: @sthomas10

Election B.C.’s ‘gag law’ hard to swallow The unfairness and absurdity of one of the B.C. government’s more controversial laws was on full display this past week, as the B.C. Government Employees Union was fined more than $3 million for having the temerity to advertise during the by-election campaigns last March. Governments love to control communications whenever possible and this government in particular has a particular fondness for that kind of behaviour. The B.C. Liberals have attempted several times to muzzle so-called “third-parties” when it comes to communicating anytime near an election campaign. The Elections Act sets tight spending limits for third parties (registered political parties have far greater flexibility and resources when it comes to advertising). The NDP government of the 1990s was the first to muzzle third parties, but the B.C. Liberals have gone much further, greatly expanding the so-called “gag law” in this province. So what great offence did the BCGEU commit that warranted the kind of fine usually associated with high level criminal activity? The union ran a 30-second radio and television ad that promoted the value of public servants. With its collective agreement about to expire at the end of March, the union was obviously making the case why its members deserved a better contract. The ads were not overtly political. They did not mention any political party and contained only a passing reference to government cutbacks. The by-elections in Port Moody-Coquitlam and Chilliwack-Hope were called on a Thursday. The ads were already up and running by then, but the BCGEU, just to play it safe, actually contacted Elections B.C. the following day to make sure their ads weren’t in contravention of the law.

keithbaldrey Through what appears to be a communications mixup, the union didn’t realize Elections B.C. considered the ads illegal until the following Tuesday (a dubious ruling at best), at which time the ads were pulled. Elections B.C. wasn’t satisfied with that, however, and demanded to know how much the ads cost. The union said the total cost, province-wide, was about $280,000 (and it calculated the cost-per-day in each of the ridings was about $285). But Elections B.C. pegged the cost at $162,000 per riding, when the spending limits for third-parties were set at just over $3,000. So the union was deemed to have overspent by $159,000 in each riding. The penalties for overspending are potentially huge. They are 10 times the amount of money that was overspent, so the total penalty levied against the BCGEU was a whopping $3.2 million ($159,000 times 10 equals $1.59 million per riding). This is absurd and, one can argue, antidemocratic (not to mention offensive, insulting and… you get the picture). We’re not talking about one of those notori-

ous political “attack” ads here. Nor was this the kind of political anti-government ad that the B.C. Federation of Teachers, for one, is fond of airing. Instead, this was a situation where a union was making a legitimate argument on behalf of its members, when suddenly the government called two by-elections, thus catching the union in an immediate and arguably unforeseen bind. Making this ridiculous situation even more embarrassing for the government is the spectacle of B.C. Liberals MLAs gleefully poking the BCGEU in the eye, insisting it drop its appeal of the penalty because it didn’t “play by the rules.” Well, the rules are offensive and are an assault on free speech. Rather than celebrating such an obnoxious assault on democracy, the B.C. Liberal caucus should be decrying it. I’ve never been a big fan of unions engaging in full-on political advertising (as a union member myself, I don’t like my union dues being spent in such a fashion), but connecting advertising to contract talks is perfectly legitimate. The B.C. Liberals love to spend your tax dollars telling you what a great job they’re doing, but when it comes to others spending their own money around election time, it’s somehow fine to expose them to crippling financial penalties. Of course, I’m not convinced an NDP government will repeal this gag law (they brought it in the first place, remember). Because too often, too many politicians think that when it comes to free speech, only they deserve rights they deny to others.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2012 THE VANCOUVER COURIER

opinion BACHELOR PARTY FIRES ROUNDS

Good gun control advocates should target ‘gun culture’ Last week I fired a gun for the first time. The occasion was the bachelor party for an old friend of mine. (And let me pause briefly here to say that the wedding was wonderful, and that the bride and groom have a very happy future ahead of them.) Why were we shooting guns? Well, none of us drink much, no one was terribly keen on dragging the groom to a strip club, and the gun range allowed us to indulge our fantasies of blasting the brains out of zombie hordes. We may all have been thinking, “Could I hit a living dead cannibal in the brains?” but other people clearly see guns in different ways. In the wake of two mass murder sprees in the United States, Americans did exactly zero soul-searching about their gun laws. In fact, many of them immediately turned to the notion that what people need is not fewer guns, but more of them! Why, if only there had been more armed civilians, surely the shooters could have been stopped!

MOST RAPE VICTIMS KNOW THEIR RAPIST. GUNS CANNOT STOP CHILD MOLESTATION OR DATE RAPE. I think of this as the “magic wand” approach to gun advocacy. In this view, guns are not tools (as they are for many hunters, farmers, and police), they are devices that give people superpowers. Pick up a high-powered pistol and suddenly the holder believes himself to be Dirty Harry Potter, capable of protecting the innocent, killing the bad guys, and making the world safe for non-gun-owning muggles. Personally, I wouldn’t care if everyone in Canada or in the United States owned a gun— with the single, major caveat that I would want them to be used and stored safely. The thing is, safe use and storage is completely incompatible with the “gun as personal protection” ethos. There are two scenarios that seem to come up frequently as reasons for having a gun. The first is the intruder breaking into a home in the

letter of the week

matthewclaxton middle of the night. (Whether the intruder is a hapless teenaged burglar or a serial killer seems to be of no importance to the narrative.) The stalwart, armed homeowner either drives away or kills the intruder. Of course, if our gun owner is a responsible one, then his gun is A) locked in a gun safe, B) not loaded, and C) has a trigger lock or is otherwise unable to fire. After all, he wouldn’t want the kids to get their hands on the gun, right? A less responsible owner might argue that by the time they got the gun, found the key and loaded the ammunition, the hypothetical hockeymasked killer has already carted away your head for his trophy case. The other scenario is based on the notion that young women should carry guns to ward off rapists: the “dark alley” scenario. Would a few rapists get a deserved gunshot wound if all women were armed? Yes. But the majority of rapes do not happen in dark alleys or deserted parking garages, contrary to the Hollywood myth. Most rape victims know their rapist. Guns cannot stop child molestation or date rape. In addition, a gun can be taken away. Self-defence training, better security and policing, and cellphones are harder to turn on victims. My feeling is that gun control laws are not the most important element of keeping society safe. It’s gun culture. If you see guns as potentially dangerous tools, like chain saws and arc welders, you have a culture that uses them safely. If you have a culture of would-be vigilantes, no amount of gun-control laws will convince people to use them safely. I liked my trip to the firing range, but I don’t need the hassle of being a responsible gun owner, and I really don’t need to indulge my cowboy fantasies by being a bad gun owner. mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

According to Rev. Gary Paterson (above), his sexuality had no bearing on his recent election as leader of the United Church of Canada. file photo Dan Toulgoet To the editor: Re: “United Church elects gay Vancouver minister as leader,” Aug. 22. I am grateful for the opportunity to respond to Professor John Stackhouse’s comment that in being elected as the 41st Moderator of the United Church I am simply a “sexuality symbol.” Let’s be clear… I am openly gay, married to a man, have co-raised three daughters (from a first marriage), and have been ministering in Vancouver for over 30 years. I am glad that sexual orientation is not an issue within the United Church, and for over 20 years has not been a barrier to full membership in the Church (including ordination). In my biographical statement as a nominee for the position of Moderator, the word “gay” appears once, and my 30-year partnership with Vancouver city councillor Tim Stevenson was also acknowledged;

but in the months leading up to the General Council and the election for Moderator, the fact of my orientation was never mentioned—not that anyone was trying to avoid this reality, but simply because it was irrelevant. That’s the real news story! It’s true, other people continue to make it an issue, including the press. And sadly, many Christians from other denominations continue to react negatively, from virulent condemnation to “energetic” dismissal. I long for the day when other Christians will realize that it is the life-giving qualities of a relationship and not the gender of the partners that is truly important—love is the standard by which any judgment should be made. I long for the day when no one will try to reduce me to a “sexuality symbol.”

We Coleman and Holborn killed Little Mountain want To the editor: Re: “Remaining tenants at Little Mountain told to move,” Aug. 1. As a resident of the Community of Little Mountain/ Riley Park since 1953, allow me to put this development into perspective. Arriving in Vancouver at that time I chose to live (and still live) in that community for two reasons: I love the area and at that time it was affordable. Forward almost 60 years— in 2007 Prime Minister Stephen Harper cancelled the Federal Social Housing Program, and Little Mountain came under the control

Rev. Gary Paterson, Moderator, United Church of Canada

of the provincial Housing Minister Rich Coleman and B.C. Housing. But the land still belongs to the citizens of the City of Vancouver, which the minister will not admit, but the archives prove different. In 2009 Minister Coleman decided, with permission from city council, to get Little Mountain demolished, after first removing all the tenants. Then Minister Coleman got the disrespectful, crazy idea to sell the land to a developer for enough money to be able to build affordable housing in Vancouver and all over the province. There were local develop-

ers interested in rebuilding Little Mountain. But after they were informed about the unethical offer, they withdrew. So he found an off-shore developer who is only interested in making money, not in the community, who is willing to take over the contract. The contract is secret so we do not know how much money the developer (Holborn) has to pay for the property. I have to live with this crazy Coleman idea because I live only two blocks away and I am sure I am not the only one. Lisa Schwabe, Vancouver

Grant home builders ‘senior-friendly’ incentives To the editor: It is a fact that there is always a shortage of senior housing. It is also hard for seniors to be placed in nursing homes. But there are many new houses being built around the Lower Mainland everyday. What if the cities and the province give incentives to home owners, builders and contractors in terms of PST discount if they made the basement suite senior-friendly and wheelchair accessible with wider

doors, ramps, slip-proof bathroom and floor? If and when I have the financial capability to build a new house, I will certainly incorporate those senior and wheelchair requirements for the basement suite as I would like to live my retirement in a housesetting if I can avoid staying in a nursing home. Thank you. Juan Luna Ibarrizto, Vancouver

What began as a small project to liven up the space with one donation of artwork from Krabbendam has evolved into a full-fledged rotating gallery showcasing the work of artists from across Metro Vancouver. A grand opening of the space takes place Thursday, Aug. 30, which will also include 17 pieces of art displayed for sale. All proceeds from the art sold during the Hope for a New Beginning sale will benefit the mission’s programs and services. Included in the artwork donated for the sale is a piece by the late, renowned Canadian artist Toni Onley, as well as one by his daughter Lynn Onley.

The city’s only choir specializing in rock, pop, Motown, blues and gospel sung in four-part harmony is looking for new members. There’s no audition or even experience required to become a member of the Sing City Show Choir: Vancouver’s only Rock Show Choir. The choir is directed by Laura Lang, a professional singer and entertainer who, according to a press release, brings skill, experience and laughter to Tuesday night rehearsals. Training is provided at rehearsals, and it’s promised most singers will develop or vastly improve quickly. The 2012-2013 season begins Sept. 4 and new members can register now by visiting singcity.ca. While you’re there make sure to check out the video montage found under “videos and photos” that includes the choir performing songs such as “Rehab” by Amy Winehouse, “Life in a Northern Town” by The Dream Academy and Brian Setzer’s “Jump, Jive an’ Wail.”

The party brings Etsy’s massive online community of more than 17 million worldwide offline once a year to celebrate its roots in independent arts and crafts making. Vancouver has an estimated 390 “Etsians.” The theme of this year’s party is “Wish You Were Here,” which will be reflected in the crafts undertaken such as postcard making and travel journal binding.

I was looking for something special to do for my birthday and now I’ve found just the right celebratory event to let loose. The Fifth Annual Accordion Noir Festival takes place Sept. 13 through 16 at the Grandview Legion, upstairs at 2205 Commercial Dr., with the Creeking Planks, the “jug band of the damned.” I don’t know what happened during the band’s last gig at the Legion, but on the Creeking Planks website they promise to be slightly less “explicit” during this performance. The Creeking Planks will be joined by two other East Side bands, High Society and the Flying Folk Army, for an evening that’s being described as a “night of bellows-driven, foot-scooting and boogying.” For more information visit creakingplanks. com.

A single car accident victim may require 50 units of blood and blood products to survive injuries. That’s why this long weekend, communities, groups and families across the country are encouraged to rally together to donate blood.

The Courier's quarterly feature - Nourish - takes you behind the scenes of what we consume. From pasture to plate, from vine to glass, readers will learn all about great food and beverage practices from local experts.

Upstairs, downstairs. From the main level of your home to the upper floor, you’ve got to get up and you’ve got to get down. Depending on the layout of your home’s interior, and whether the staircase is tucked away out of sight or centred visibly in the forefront, a staircase has to be both visually appealing and practical. It also has to be safe to climb – tattered tread, slippery wood, or steps at the wrong height – all can add to the possibility of accidents. Not to mention, looking unattractive.

Break out the rake: Each week, rake and remove

leaves from the lawn. It’s important for grass to get sunlight during the fall in order for it to grow back strong in the spring.

Bring on the mulch: It’s important to use winter mulch so that the soil can maintain a more even temperature. Mulch will help plants survive during the periods when there is no snow cover. Plant, plant, plant: Although a lot of gardening is done early in the spring, fall is another great time to

kudos & kvetches Cut to the chase

In the years we’ve been writing this column, first with quill and ink, then on a typewriter, then for a brief time in the ’80s using one of those wicked Bic 4-Colour ballpoint pens and finally on a Commodore 64, which we’re still using due to budgetary constraints, we’ve received a lot of feedback from readers. Some of it positive, some negative and some completely insane. But there is one topic that has generated the most responses from readers who like to write in ALL CAPS and with lots of exclamation marks to express just how impassioned they feel!!!!!!!! And that topic, dear friends, is circumcision. As you may know, K&K has steadfastly maintained a pro-male circumcision stance, purely based on aesthetics and our dislike of Shar Peis. And while we realize this is a shallow reason, when it comes down to it we really don’t care either way. To each their own. But inevitably we’ll receive emails from foreskin crusaders accusing us of supporting the mutilation of baby boys and other offences to mankind’s intact genitalia. All of which is a long way of explaining that we expect the letters to flood our inbox when we mention the victory lap we took around the Courier office Monday afternoon upon reading: “The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued new guidelines saying the health benefits of infant

circumcision outweigh the risks of the surgery.” Previously, the influential physician’s group had been neutral on the topic, but a new statement from the group, published this week in the journal Pediatrics, is in favour of the procedure, pointing to scientific evidence that suggests “circumcision can reduce the risk of urinary tract infections in infants and cut the risk of penile cancer and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV and the human papilloma virus or HPV, which causes cervical and other cancers.” Not surprisingly, anti-circumcision groups quickly issued responses arguing that the AAP hadn’t sufficiently, wait for it, fleshed out the issue. The Circumcision Resource Center—yes, it’s real—went so far as to list 18 so-called “deficiencies” with the AAP’s findings, including this far-reaching gem: “The rise and fall of male infant mortality correlates with the rise and fall of the circumcision rate. Is circumcision a contributing factor? We do not know.” Based on this kind of logic, you could also say, “The rise and fall of hair metal bands correlates with the rise and fall of the circumcision rate. Is circumcision a contributing factor? We do not know.” Nonetheless, this will probably be the last time we’ll write about circumcision in K&K. Like a certain bit of extraneous skin, it can get a little excessive. Now, bring on the crazy.

Picks of the week

Speaking of crazy. B.C. Liberal Bill Bennett, a top lieutenant in Premier Christy Clark’s “election readiness team,” thinks voters should be concerned about Surrey New Democrat Jagrup Brar’s weeklong stay at—gasp!—a Cuban resort. Bennett was particularly alarmed with Brar’s comments on a radio show praising the communist country’s health and education system. In an article in the Canadian Press, Bennett said Bar’s comments should be “a wake-up call for any British Columbian who values individual enterprise and individual freedom.” “Sometimes when people are most relaxed, such as after a refreshing holiday in the Caribbean, they are most likely to express their innermost thoughts,” said Bennett in all seriousness. “In this case, Jagrup may well have given us a glimpse into the secret desires of the B.C. NDP caucus.” And with that, Bennett jumped into his camouflaged pickup truck and retreated to the foothills of Burnaby where he’s been assembling a freedom-loving resistance army of teenage football players who refuse to take any Pinko-Commie invasion lying down.

Message behind musical parody

Boyz band has altar-ior motives Altar Boyz

At the Arts Club Revue Stage until Sept. 1

Tix: 604-687-1644. artsclub.com

The “boyz” are back and looking a wee bit older but no less fervent than when I saw them back in 2009. This time around I went with two 13-year-old boys (looking good in baseball caps and hoodies). I thought they’d get off on the show—especially Sara-Jeanne Hosie’s high-octane choreography and Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker’s music and lyrics. My teenaged guests don’t go to church, probably don’t think of themselves as Christians, but both were departing the next morning for the second time this summer for the Christian camp on Anvil Island, which, they tell me, is a blast. As well as fun stuff like swimming, stand-up paddle boarding and pillow fights “every night,” they attend chapel for an hour every day and another hour discussing their values. So the Altar Boyz seemed like a good fit—and it was. However, Luke, a perceptive and articulate kid (as well as being a fearless skier and mountain biker) said he thought my review should, in his words, “warn” people that there was a lot of “God” and “Jesus” in Kevin Del Aguila’s hit musical, billed as sinfully funny. And he’s right. Fun and funny as it is and rocking as most of the songs are, the message is definitely capital “C” Christian. Take the Altar Boyz stand on sex. Even if Matthew (Jeremy Crittenden) finds his “Levi’s are real tight” when he’s around his girlfriend, he’s going to wait for sex until they’re married. The kicker line in this song had both my teenaged friends laughing out loud—even a bit shocked. In “Something About You,” with the assistance of a woman in

the audience, Matthew sings there’s “Something about you/That makes me want to wait/At least until our wedding date/So till then, I’ll master... [pregnant pause]/ My own faith.” Big laugh but the concept must have seemed downright antediluvian to a couple of young teenaged boys. Directed by Bill Millerd, Altar Boyz manages to be irreverent and reverent at the same time. This has to do with the appeal and energy that this cast of five (Crittenden, Geoff Stevens as Mark, Jak Barradell as Luke, Michael Culp as Juan and Brandyn Eddy as Abraham) serve up nightly on the Revue Stage. The characters are nicely individuated: Luke is the former bad-ass boy who did time in juvie “recuperating” from “exhaustion.” Barradell, who plays Luke, is the most exciting dancer of the bunch and he really can bust the breakdancing moves. Stevens’ Mark is so sweet and so joyfully gay and he brings the house down with Mark’s confession, which is not “I’m gay”—which is what we expect him to confess—but “I’m a Catholic.” Mark was my guests’ favourite character and Culp’s Juan was a close second; what he can do with his pelvis ought to be illegal in public. Abraham, being the only Jew amongst the Catholics, takes a bit of a back pew until the surprising conclusion, and that’s when Eddy brings it home. Crittenden’s Matthew is just so gosh-darned nice. The onstage band of four, under the musical direction of Jim Hodgkinson, did not look like the rockers the kids hoped for but they were definitely capable of putting out great sound. Like, totally. You can’t argue with the do-unto-others and the “fitting in” messages: “It doesn’t matter/If you’re different and out of place/

It doesn’t matter/If there’s acne upon your face.” This is stuff that teenagers, especially, need to know. Altar Boyz doesn’t hurt a bit. The guys don’t pass the collection plate, they don’t make you confess your sins and chances are pretty

good you’ll leave the Revue Theatre singing, “We are the Altar Boyz/We’re gonna knock the devil down/ We are the Altar Boyz/And I think you’ll find/We’re gonna alter your mind.” —Jo Ledingham joled@telus.net

Altar Boyz busts a move at the Revue Stage until Sept. 1.

Abbott-Peters returns to Paralympics as a coach Megan Stewart

Staff writer

At her fourth Paralympic Games, Marni Abbott-Peters will not be on the court. The three-time world champion and three-time Paralympic gold medal wheelchair basketball player joins the coaching staff of the women’s national team at the 2012 London Games. “With this team, I really bring experience,” said Abbott-Peters, 47, who has

coached provincial teams and credits former Canadian team head coach Tim Frick for her long-term success. “He taught me to be a better person and not just a better athlete,” she said. “That was really important and I think I can help the girls recognize the really good qualities in themselves and the things that are important off the courts, too.” The Opening Ceremony for the Summer Paralympic Games is Wednesday and

the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments begins Thursday. Abbott-Peters is one of Vancouver’s most successful Paralympians. Another is Richard Peters, her husband, who is competing at his fifth and likely final Games in wheelchair basketball. For an expanded profile of Abbott-Peters and Peters, visit vancourier.com/ sports. Ten more Vancouverites are competing at the 2012

the 10-metre and 50-metre air rifle. A world champion in 2001, he has twice finished fourth at the Games and in Beijing, finished fourth again after narrowly losing a three-way tie for bronze. At his fourth Games, David Scott Patterson will compete for the first time as a swimmer. A double-leg amputee, he ran track at the 1988 Summer Games, and at the 2002 Winter Games won bronze in the giant slalom. He was on the alpine

London Games. Paul Gauthier, Monica Martino and Josh Vander Vies compete in mixed pairs and mixed individual boccia. Ahmed Zeividavi and Brendan Gaulin play goalball, a fast, non-contact sport for visually impaired athletes. Robert Lebel joins them as the head coach of the national team. At his sixth Paralympics in London, Christos Trifonidis will compete in two shooting events, including

seniors

Canada’s 2012 Olympics results were barely average Jim Morris

Contributing writer Expectations are difficult things to manage, as the Canadian Olympic Committee is discovering in the wake of the London Olympics. The couple of weeks since the 2012 Summer Games ended has allowed time to analyse Canada’s performance in London. The COC likes to talk about the number of inspiring performances and gush over the women’s soccer team finishing third. In truth, Canada had an average Olympics. Considering the amount of money Own the Podium is spending on summer sports, taxpayers have a right to expect more. Factor in some high-profile athletes like boxer Mary Spencer of Windsor, Ont., cyclist Zach Bell of North Vancouver and mountain biker Catharine Pendrel of Kamloops, all three who missed the podium entirely and you could say the results were disappointing. They said as much themselves; Pendrel, fighting tears, even apologized. The Canadian Olympic Committee set a goal to finish among the top 12 countries in medals won. In the end Canada earned 18 medals—one gold, five silver and 12 bronze—to finish 13th. The Netherlands and Ukraine both won more and each took home 20 medals. Over the last four years OTP has spent $36 million

a year on summer athletes. It’s true other countries spend plenty more money on their sports programs. “The investment in summer sports is still relatively short,’’ Anne Merklinger, OTP’s chief executive officer, said prior to the Games. “Do I think that we will have a positive affect on the performance in London? Yes. Is there still a lot of work to be done? There’s no doubt about it.’’ If you use gold medals as a barometer of success, Canada sunk to 36th among 79 nations on the medal table. (Canada’s single gold was won by Ontario’s Rosie MacLennan in trampoline.) Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt returned home with more gold than Canada. Lithuania and Belarus celebrated more victories. Compare Canada’s performance in London with the last three Summer Olympics. At the 2008 Beijing Games, Canada finished 14th in medals with 18 (three gold, nine silver, six bronze). At Athens in 2004, Canada was 19th (36-3) and finished 18th in 2000 in Sydney (3-3-8). The most medals Canada has ever won at a non-boycotted Games was 22 in 1996. The gold medal count in London was the lowest at a non-boycotted Games since the 1976 Montreal Olympics when Canada was kept off the top step of the podium, the only host country never to win gold.

was created in 2005 its purpose was to help Canadian athletes lead the medal count at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Canada finished third in the standings with 26 medals, but the 14 gold were the most won by any country at a Winter Games. In 2006 the program was expanded to include summer sports. OTP distributes about $70 million in federal government funding each year for both summer and winter sports.

At past Olympics, officials were frustrated with Canada’s conversion rate. Too often athletes that had performed well at world championships and World Cup events leading up to the Games fell short of expectations at the Olympics. The belief held that if OTP focused its spending on training, coaching and equipment for selected athletes, the support would allow those individuals to perform on the day. The theory worked at the

President Marcel Aubut has slipped back into talking about “best performances” and Canada forming a “true team.’’ The Olympics isn’t a participation event; everyone doesn’t get a ribbon for showing up.

LAM, Lancelot Nai-Chung Feb 22, 1946 - Aug 21, 2012 On a beautiful August 21, Dr. Lancelot Lam died peacefully with his family by his side. He is survived by his mother, Lam Wai Yung, son Mark (Miranda), grandsons Trevor and Aaron, brothers Horace (Betsy) and Charles and sisters Alice Chu (Francis) and Mora Tang (Sandys) and five nieces, Christina, Sarah, Ming Bo, Lydia and Ming Jee. Predeceased by his father, Lam Kam Wah in 2001. Lance was born February 22, 1946, the first of five children and spent his formative years in Hong Kong. He graduated from and became an active alumnus of St. Paul’s Co-Educational College where he made many close, lifelong friends. In 1968, Lance move to Canada and attended the University of Guelph. Upon graduation from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1973, he moved to the Lower Mainland. Beloved by both his patients and clients, Lance was known as a kind and compassionate veterinarian. He owned and operated the Island Veterinary Hospital in Nanaimo from 1978 to 1995 and the Coquitlam Animal Hospital from 1995 until his retirement in 2011. During his all too brief retirement, Lance took the opportunity to reflect on his life and was enthusiastically embarking on a journey along a path he had just begun to carve out. The week prior to his passing had been a particularly joyful one spent with his mother and grandsons and Lance was excited about the future. We would like to thank doctors and staff of the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital for all their care and attention during his final days. A viewing will be held Wednesday, August 29 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at OceanView Funeral Home, 4000 Imperial Street, Burnaby. A celebration of his life will be held at 1:00 pm on Thursday, August 30 at OceanView Funeral Home, 4000 Imperial Street, Burnaby. Reception to follow the ceremony. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation, 102-1801 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, BC V9S 1H1, Canada in his memory. Condolences may be sent to lancelam1946@yahoo.com.
