speeded up footage of her on a transit bus, in graffiti-covered alleys and in a room at the Aboriginal Friendship Centre on East Hastings, “where I got sober.” She made up the lyrics on the spot. “…We don’t realize we’ve only got one life to live. My walk, my talk, my heart is all I’ve got to give. My love, my joy, my babies of the East Side. My babies, my babies, my five little eyes, my five little hearts, my five little cries…” It’s a fascinating side of Lecoy, who mentions an invitation to perform at an upcoming aboriginal event. The DVD continues to play as she and her kids get ready for the walk to the bus stop. Lecoy continues singing as she goes about her new house. “…my five little hearts, my five little cries…”

T

he Courier visits Melanie Lecoy on a Friday morning. Four of her kids are still asleep—three on a pullout couch in the living room and Caprice on a bedroom floor upstairs; her nineyear-old son Keshawn just left on the school bus for Strathcona. It’s the same bus that picks up Gina Hawkins’ son, Phoenix. Lecoy savours the quietness of the morning as she sips on a bubble tea in her sun-filled living room. The place has a new carpet smell. “I don’t know what’s happening but everything is just falling into place for me right now,” she says and goes on to explain what life used to be like for her: a victim of sexual abuse at a young age, a drinking problem before she was a teenager and a foster kid at 13. She’s anticipating the release of her file from the Ministry of Children and Families to put the pieces together from days gone by. “I just want to understand myself more.” Through it all, Lecoy graduated from Chilliwack Secondary in 2005. She had three kids by then and embarked on a career in construction, doing demolition work and traffic control. That didn’t last. She had two more kids and was still having a rough time with alcoholism, an addiction she connects to being a victim of sexual abuse. Ironically, it was when she moved into the Raymur housing projects that her downward direction took a Uturn. That’s where she met Hawkins and other moms. That’s where she sought help for her addiction and began thinking about a better life for her growing family. Lecoy, who collects about $2,300 a month in income assistance, has been sober for 30 months after attending Alcoholics Anonymous. Eighteen months into her sobriety,

It’s a prayer adopted by Alcoholics Anonymous: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.” Lecoy is OK with the religious overtones. Three years ago, she and her family joined the appropriately named New Beginnings Baptist Church on Frances Street. Her faith, she says, gives her guidance from the turmoil. It’s a church, as its website explains, that serves the East Side “with a burden for those who are hurt and broken, those often forgotten by society.” The church is providing another positive for Lecoy: She is doing a practicum there to complete a 10month family and community counselling program she enrolled in at the Native Education College. She does one-on-one counselling, organizes family dinners and outings, facilitates a group for men and women and brings in speakers. An organization affiliated with the YWCA paid her $5,000 tuition after

she told them her story in a letter. Lecoy’s ability to handle the workload and tend to five children—and stay on a sober path—is a remarkable feat, says her pastor, Joe Russell. He describes Lecoy as a “rough diamond” and believes she has the drive and perspective to make a difference with her schooling. “My mind reels at the idea of her being a family and community counsellor because she still needs so much counseling,” Russell says. “But then my mind says that she is the most experienced person in trauma and in what moms are going through and in what kids are going through. She’ll be dynamite, she already is.”

he morning has stretched on and the Lecoy kids are finally awake. A friend with a van who was supposed to pick them up for school can’t make it today. So, the bus it is. First, it’s a round of Rice Krispies and Corn Flakes. “Eat, please,” Lecoy says to her smiley-faced seven-year-old Markus, who is full of beans and can’t sit still. “Finished,” he says after rapidly

hey all pile on the bus, taking seats at the back. Their first stop is East Hastings and Campbell where Lecoy puts Caprice in charge of taking Quinn to daycare at Ray-Cam. A few stops later, she gets off with Markus and Cynthia for the short walk up Princess Street to Strathcona school. “A woman down here told me once that I was like Mother Duck with all her ducklings,” says Lecoy, with the school now in view. “When they’re all with me, I guess it kind of looks like that.” Her hearty laugh is of the infectious kind. It’s 10:45 when Lecoy and her kids reach the playground, where principal Margaret Jorgensen is talking to a parent during recess. “Sorry, we’re late,” says Lecoy, who earlier told Jorgensen about her move out of the neighbourhood. Jorgensen appears unfazed by the tardiness. She agreed to let Lecoy’s kids continue at the school to finish out the year. Lecoy leads Markus and Cynthia to their classrooms and wishes them a good day. For the first time this morning, she is by herself as she walks along East Pender Street towards the Raymur projects, her old home. Continued on next page

Back to the table, please.” Markus is running laps around the kitchen and living room with his three-year-old brother Quinn. They run faster and faster and laugh harder and harder. Six-year-old Cynthia is eating quietly at the table while the eldest of the bunch, Caprice, is playing with her phone on the couch. The move, Lecoy says, has been good for the kids. But it’s meant some late nights and long mornings; they’ve been wired with excitement. It was her kids and her struggles that Lecoy thought deeply about when, on a whim six months ago, she visited a local studio offering free recording time for aboriginal people. She places a DVD in her machine. Out pumps a hip-hop beat and there is Lecoy—her recording name is “Little Rita”—in a red Adidas jacket, faded jeans and old school runners doing what she calls spoken word.

Now 30 months sober, Lecoy plans to give back to Raymur group

Continued from page 4 She’s talking out loud about the end of the school year and what comes next for her kids. They’re always on her mind. “If I can get a van, there’s a Christian school up on Renfrew. Next year, I’d like to put them all in there. I think it would settle them down a little bit. It can be pretty rough down here.” Her former home is in the distance. The drab-looking complex seems out of place when compared to the well-kept character houses and colourful gardens in the neighbourhood. It’s only been three days since she left these streets but Lecoy is already philosophical about the place she called home for three years. “It was a real test of everything here for me— whether I would lose it, lose my kids, turn to drugs and alcohol, whether I would fail.”

BEFORE

Melanie Lecoy gets a hug during her graduation ceremony at the Italian Cultural photo Dan Toulgoet Centre. except for a cleaning lady. She opens the door to what has become her office, which overlooks the nave of the church. She gets on the phone and begins to make calls about a family day outing to Saltspring Island planned for the next day. Success: Another person is in. She takes a seat on a couch and reflects how far she’s come in a short time. If she were to write a book about her life, she would title it “Walk with me.” She rattles off a list of people and agencies that have helped her along the way. There’s Kiwassa House, where she attended a workshop called Warriors Against Violence. That’s where Dan and Joe taught her about breaking the cycle of family violence and the importance of a “time-out” when life goes sideways. There’s Paulina at the YWCA for helping find the kids some clothes. There’s Audrey the psychologist for identifying her post-traumatic stress disorder. There’s Rusty the social worker who kept her focused. And Pastor Joe and the church, which have given so much, including a trip to a dentist to get Lecoy’s teeth fixed. For the moms at the Raymur projects, she has this to say. “I’m still a Raymur mom. That’s where I changed my life, that’s where I got my sobriety. Now I hope with my education, I can share and support the moms down there.” She notes the day of the month. Another 35 days until she graduates.

AFTER

ack at Hawkins’ townhouse, the cockroaches are still very much alive.

It’s been two weeks since the fumigation and she’s requested another visit from the pest control company. Once again, her place is in disarray for today’s spraying. On her calendar is a meeting at the Neighbourhood Inner City Services Society, which is across the street from Ray-Cam. Some of the moms, staff from Ray-Cam and leaders of non-profit agencies are to discuss safety, housing, child apprehension and other issues facing the community. Hawkins is torn—her stepson Trevor has a date in family court today. He wants her there for support. It’s to do with the custody of his one-and-a-half-year-old son. If Hawkins can swing it, she plans to be in court on Hornby Street and return in time to catch some of the meeting. Moms Bessie and Amber agree to join her. They board the bus with Trevor and Phoenix, who’s home from his half day of school. The sun is out and the ride along East Hastings provides an eyeful for all aboard. The strip is alive with moms, dads, kids in strollers, the elderly, the disabled, buskers, cops, hawkers, drug users, drug dealers and dogs. Trevor is 17 and had a child with his girlfriend, Kylie, almost two years ago. They are separated and Trevor’s appearance in court today is to request an extension of a “temporary care order.” Essentially, he wants more time to prove to the court that he will be able to provide for his son, who is living with a great aunt. Before court, Hawkins zeroes in on Trevor’s

he continues up the street to Ray-Cam where she runs into Sabine Tanasiuk, the community centre’s key provider to the moms’ group. “Meet the light in my heavens,” she says of Tanasiuk, who shrugs off the compliment and asks how things are working out in her new home. Caprice is now by her mom’s side. She is supposed to be in school, an alternative program run out of the Aboriginal Friendship Centre. School rules prevent her from attending if she doesn’t show up by 10 a.m. so Caprice will spend the day with her mom, whose next stop is the church. Food comes first, though. They walk across the street to a café. Along the way, Caprice picks up a newspaper and turns to the horoscopes. Her mom is a Virgo: “The problems you face are mostly problems you have created for yourself. Therefore, hoping that other people will resolve them for you isn’t going to work, is it? A more positive attitude plus hard work will do it though.” They share a laugh as they enter the café. Lecoy greets Linda, the Chinese owner, in Cantonese. “Lei-ho-ma,” she says, which translates to “how are you.” They take a seat in a booth and order. It’s a sweet and sour pork dish for mom, an omelette for daughter. The turnaround is fast. “Chez, chez, lang noi,” says Lecoy, thanking Linda as the food is set on the table. Linda often calls Lecoy “lang noi,” which means “pretty girl.” Today, Lecoy is returning the compliment. She goes on to string a few sentences in Spanish, showing her proficiency for languages. The bus ride to the church is a few stops from the community centre. The old dark brown stucco building is across from Woodland Park, where Lecoy and her family first met members of the church at a barbecue. Lecoy has her own key. The church is vacant

social worker after hearing Trevor might have to take a ministry “parent capacity test.” “He hasn’t even had a chance to be a parent, so how can he take a test to be a parent?” she says out loud. “That’s not going to happen.” Trevor lives with Hawkins and plans to find his own place and a job. He’s strapped for cash but will see what he can do about social assistance. There’s also the thorny issue of the money his mother, whom he isn’t close to, is receiving from the government that is supposed to support Trevor. He’s dressed in a collared black and white striped shirt, jeans and white runners. He’s lean, with short hair and has a thin moustache. He’s given his white “Native Pride” ball cap to Gina to wear. His former girlfriend is in a black hoodie, leggings and high-cut runners. Her face is hidden behind a mess of peroxide blonde hair. They appear before the judge, who hears the Crown’s request for the extension. The judge grants the extension but not before she hears from Kylie, who appears lost. “Agree,” she says quietly. “I’m fine with everything.” As they leave court, Hawkins, Bessie and Amber go into action like an emergency response team. They hug Kylie, tell her things are going to be alright and ensure she has their cellphone numbers. Outside court, Trevor is ecstatic. “I love it—and I’m happy she agreed with it,” he says, with Phoenix at his side. The court appearance took longer than anticipated. It’s 2:30 when Hawkins catches a bus back to Ray-Cam. She doesn’t bother to cross the street to the meeting after spotting some of the participants on the sidewalk. Inside the community centre, she hears from Scott Clark of ALIVE, or Aboriginal Life in Vancouver Enhancement Society, who was at the meeting. He tells Hawkins there are plans for a large gathering July 28 at Ray-Cam, where the goal is to bring women’s groups together to discuss building safer neighbourhoods for women and children.There’s also talk of requesting a meeting with city manager Penny Ballem to again stress the need for a network of services for children and families as the city considers a new community plan for the area. Hawkins agrees to get working on helping organize the meeting in July. As she gets up from the table, a young woman who stays with Hawkins on occasion approaches her. She’s in tears about not having any money or being able to find work. Hawkins gives her a hug. “I’m going to make some calls and see if I can get you a job at one of the Chevrons [gas stations],” she says of her former employer. But that’ll have to wait. One of the community centre’s board of directors reminds Hawkins of a Block Watch meeting beginning in 15 minutes. Continued on page 6

t’s been a few weeks since Lecoy left Hawkins and the other moms at the Raymur projects. On this morning, she’s at the Aboriginal Friendship Centre on East Hastings to celebrate National Aboriginal Day. She’s in a bright red T-shirt, holding a drum and standing before a large crowd in the centre’s gymnasium. Mayor Gregor Robertson and NDP MLA Jenny Kwan are there. Lecoy doesn’t have a band with her, so no spoken word today. Before she begins, she gets a round of applause when the host informs the crowd that Lecoy is 29 months sober. She breaks into a set of traditional aboriginal songs and, in between, tells of her struggles. A group of students from Simon Fraser elementary are seated crosslegged in the front row. “I’m singing in memory of all the youth and the women who are struggling with drugs and addictions and alcoholism. It’s really important that we empower our youth today and our children today. We see all these little babies around here. They are the future of tomorrow.” Lecoy stays on that message later in the morning as she joins several hundred aboriginal people in an annual march to Trout Lake. Word of government cuts to aboriginal youth programs makes the march more poignant. “I’m not too happy about it,” she says,

“I ALREADY HAD IT IN ME, I JUST HAD TO DIG DEEP AND APPLY MYSELF. SO, HERE I AM.” Melanie Lecoy

marching up Commercial Drive. “These programs help to keep youth off the street and help them to lead a good life. And they bring other people with their aboriginal teachings to the city, which is important. I don’t get it. How can the government talk about apologizing for the residential school mess and then cut these programs?”

t’s the afternoon of Friday, July 13. The big day has come. Melanie Lecoy, mother of five children, victim of sexual and physical abuse, recovering alcoholic, foster kid and former Raymur mom is about to graduate from Native Education College. She’s running late and misses the opening procession of more than 120 graduates filing into a hall at the Italian Cultural Centre on Grandview Highway. Lecoy quickly gets into her royal blue gown and dons her cap. She’s in a dress and heels. Her hair is done, make-up on. Hawkins shows up briefly but again she is double-booked and committed to a community meeting and a day camp for children. She gives Lecoy a hug and a kiss.

“Look at you, you are so beautiful,” she says. Lecoy joins her classmates near the front of the hall and, by coincidence, gets to listen to a keynote speech from her uncle, B.C.’s Lt.-Gov. Steven Point. “When one aboriginal person graduates and achieves something great, everybody has achieved,” he says in a rising voice. “We can turn around the perception that the Canadian people— or anybody—has of minorities simply by changing the way we perceive ourselves. We can achieve greatness.” Soon, the parade of graduates begins. Lecoy’s class is seventh on the list. She waits at the side of the stage and when her name is called, there is applause. Her daughter Caprice runs up front with her smartphone to snap photographs. Lecoy steps onto the stage and bows to have a traditional red scarf draped around her neck. Then she stands, beaming with her classmates for the cameras. “Once again,” the host of the ceremony says over the PA system, “the family and community counselling graduating class of 2012.” More applause. She leaves the stage to hugs, handshakes and more photographs before taking a moment to reflect on what the day means to her. Her thoughts come quickly. “I already had it in me, I just had to dig deep and apply myself. So, here I am.” mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

Critical confusion

Maybe it’s a Vancouver thing. Or, maybe it’s a democracy thing. Whatever it is, there’s something about a select number of Vancouverites who feel the need to protest for all the public to see. Media attention is usually their goal. Whether it’s the condemnation of war, being upset with a foreign government’s treatment of its people or the right to smoke weed, protest is a common occurrence in the streets. If you happen to be around the Vancouver Art Gallery this Friday at 5 p.m., you’ll get a first-hand look at what a large-scale public demonstration looks like. That’s where hundreds—maybe thousands?—of so-called cyclists will start the monthly Critical Mass bike ride. This is the ride where cyclists take over the streets, block intersections and generally piss off a lot of motorists. The reason for the mass twowheeled love-in has never really been clear to me. I get it that people want more infrastructure for cycling. But what I don’t get is

The police will likely not interfere with cyclists participating in Critical Mass this afternoon as it would only cause photo courtesy “ItzaFineDay” via Creative Commons more traffic delays, according to a VPD board report. the helmetless dude sparking up a spliff, getting on a “borrowed” BMX bike and flashing the bird at some unassuming motorist trying to get home at the end of the week. Bike good, car evil? I’ll move on… I bring up Critical Mass because it’s mentioned in a Vancouver Police Department report that went before the Vancouver Police Board July 18. The report is a draft version of the VPD’s public demonstration guidelines. The guidelines are nothing new but simply

a compilation of policy cops are supposed to follow when policing public demonstrations. So what can you expect from the VPD at this Friday’s Critical Mass ride? “To engage in enforcement action against every cyclist during Critical Mass would cause the ride to become significantly longer and would exponentially disrupt traffic,” said the report authored by Supt. Mike Porteous. “This would have the added effect of increasing tension between the

cyclists and motorists as the ride becomes longer because of police enforcement action.” Added Porteous: “This may lead to violence that otherwise would not have occurred, put the police and public at risk and bring criticism from the public which the VPD serves.” So, essentially, ride on. Though Critical Mass garners media attention, the VPD says it attends “several hundred protests and demonstrations” in the city every year.

What prompted the report before the police board was the VPD receiving “many inquiries on its philosophies and practices in relation to protests.” So I figured the B.C. Civil Liberties Association had something to do with this. But, I was wrong. In fact, David Eby, the executive director of the police watchdog group, said the VPD have done a good job handling major protests, including Occupy Vancouver, the 2010 Winter Games and—although it couldn’t really be deemed a protest—the Stanley Cup riot. “We thought the police reacted responsibly in all of those,” said Eby, who joked the association had “lost our way” for giving the VPD praise. The association, however, continues to have concerns with the shooting death of Paul Boyd and the VPD’s use of PRIME B.C. related to criminal record checks. “But a great deal of our attention is occupied by the RCMP of late, in particular around accountability issues and reforms to the RCMP Act and so on,” Eby said. So who, or what does he credit for the VPD’s approach to policing protests? “Just a very different philosophy from the top,” he said, pointing to Police Chief Jim Chu’s leadership. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

WEB POLL NATION Go to www.vancourier.com to vote Are you happy that the A-mazeing Laughter sculptures will remain in Vancouver? Last week’s poll question:

The proposed Kits-Jericho seawall expansion is: A) the democratization of much needed public space—59 per cent B) the desecration of natural beauty we can’t afford to lose—41 per cent This is not a scientific poll.

Viaduct removal taking shape

You don’t have to bumble very far back through the blogosphere to find critics of the plan to remove Vancouver’s viaducts. Here’s how “Grumpy” leads off: “What a colossal waste of the taxpayer’s money. The Vision(less) Vancouver Council, nor do city bureaucrats have a clue what they are doing. Where will the cars go?” That was typical of the ridicule Vision Coun. Geoff Meggs attracted back in 2009 when he first took the lead on the removal of these two remnants of a previous council’s attempt to run a freeway through the heart of the city. But in those few years, public attitudes have changed or at least matured. Of the 600 comment sheets left at open houses on the issue, 69 per cent supported the concept of removing the viaducts. Meggs became interested in the impact of the viaducts when he lived in Strathcona back in the ’80s and the neighbourhood created a community garden south of the heavily travelled Prior Street. Most of the residents lived to the north. Years later, Meggs recalls, he was working for former mayor Larry Campbell and spoke with city planner Larry Beasley, who considered the viaducts and their impact a regrettable problem that was basically a lost cause. Not long after that, architect Big Thom put together a daylong workshop of experts looking at the viaducts who concluded there was no good reason to leave them standing. During Meggs’s first term as a councillor he flew a trial balloon in the form of an article in the online newspaper the Tyee ad-

allengarr vocating their removal and the rest, as they say, is history. City staff that was at first skeptical now exudes enthusiasm. A plan that was considered, at best, something to consider 15 years down the road was framed by staff in a presentation to council this week as something that can be proceeded with “immediately.” And as for that plan; it was originally considered something that would affect a few short blocks but now is seen as a catalyst for the future of Vancouver’s eastern core, which includes Chinatown, Strathcona and Grandview-Woodland. It is described as a project that will “reconnect” neighbourhoods, advance the city’s goals of creating more affordable housing, support the expansion of green space and move people from cars into what are preferred modes of transportation including biking, walking and public transit. Opponents may have viewed the coun-

cil presentation as a done deal. It is far from that. Although, while the chronic kvetchers in Strathcona will persist, regardless of when and if the viaducts come down, that neighbourhood’s main complaint will be resolved with a number of traffic calming strategies. We will see a “Malkin connector” that will divert traffic not just from Strathcona but also from Grandview-Woodland. The sea change in thinking is rooted in the results of a competition run by the city during the last civic election to “re-think” the area around the viaducts. Experts were brought in to judge the entrants and the public also voted online. The clear winner was a submission that included input from Beasley and the late Vision councillor Jim Green. The “big idea” that turned city staff on was their proposal to remove the viaducts and connect Georgia with Pacific Boulevard. The city also knew that when the viaducts were closed for two weeks during the 2010 Olympics, traffic actually ran better, to say nothing of the relief on Strathcona and Grandview-Woodland, and neighbourhoods to the east. There are still a lot of unanswered questions. That’s why city staff and council have a delayed a decision until the fall. It will give everyone time to catch their breath and gather more public input for what will be the most significant development decision in the city’s recent history. And while Grumpy will still be grumpy, you can bet Meggs is feeling pretty good about it. agarr@vancourier.com

FRIDAY, JULY 27, 2012 THE VANCOUVER COURIER

opinion 875 MILLION SMALL ARMS IN GLOBAL CIRCULATION

Guns, jerks and steel a plague on the planet Six summers ago I was on a bus with tourists, heading to the airport after a holiday in Puerto Vallarta. “I love my Glock,” I overheard one man say to another. “Yeah, mine’s a beauty,” replied the other, who apparently owned a different model of the same handgun. I turned to see one of the guys’ wives join in and gush about her Smith and Wesson, or some other brand of blaster. They appeared to be pleasant, middle-class, middle-aged white people, and their accents placed them from the American southwest and midwest. Their shared warmth for weaponry seemed comically surreal to me, like Monty Python’s Holy Grail characters genuflecting before The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch. In the U.S., arguments for armed self-defense are often mixed in a stew of frontier justice, male machismo, and libertarian will-to-power—and in the case of my bus companions, the happy enthusiasm of collectors. Last spring at a supermarket checkout in Maui, I picked up a souvenir: a copy of Shotgun News, “the trading post for anything that shoots,” with the sacred Glock 22 on the cover. For a gunaware guy like me, the publication’s prose read like a mix of English and Vulcan. “Dominate the Encounter” demanded an ad for “Aimpoint & EOTech.” An adjacent article drooled over a commercially available sniper rifle: “The Cottonmouth from Venom Tactical is built to the highest possible standards…. and is ideal for use by law enforcement agencies… in urban environments.” Also ideal for use by unstable loners, no doubt. Want a scope mount? A Romanian AK-47 or an Israeli M10 Gas Mask? A 40mm grenade can made of steel? A kevlar codpiece signed by Dick Cheney? Shotgun News is your resource for all but the last item. The U.S. is awash in easily acquired weapons, legal or otherwise, and the Aurora, Colorado theatre shooter may not have even had to leave his boobytrapped apartment to shop for his overkill gear. “I call 6,000 rounds of ammunition running low,” one Colorado gun-owner said of James Holmes’ armoury in the New York Times. In 2011, the New York Times reported that many top selling gun brands, including Remington and Bushmaster FireArms, have been acquired by a company called Freedom Group. “By its own count, the Freedom Group sold 1.2 million long guns and 2.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the 12 months ended March 2010, the most recent year for which figures are pub-

letter of the week

geoffolson licly available.” Freedom Group is owned by Cerberus Capital Management, a private equity firm that acquired Chrysler in 2007. In case you flunked Greek Mythology 101, Cerberus is the three-headed hound that guards the gates of the Underworld. Is this starting to sound like the plotline from an Alan Moore graphic novel, or what? Freedom Group, with two retired U.S. generals on its board, has sold weapons to the governments of Afghanistan, Thailand, Mexico and Malaysia, notes the Times. But let’s not leave the U.S. government out of the picture when it comes to dispensing firearms like Halloween candy. The Telegraph reports that from 2009 to 2010, agents from the department of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms knowingly allowed drug cartels to purchase about 2,000 assault weapons in the United States. The intent of “Operation Fast and Furious” was to trace the weapons to crime scenes in Mexico. Retired judges, police officers and criminologists have come forward to declare that the U.S.-led “war on drugs” an abject failure. Yet from the perspective of disaster capitalism it’s been a raging success. Governments and law enforcement agencies throughout the world are big customers for the global small arms industry, and while the U.S. is the biggest single player, they’re hardly alone. Companies based in South Africa, Belgium, Britain, Germany, Argentina, Turkey and other nations also command some of the shoot-’emup profits. The multibillion-dollar guns n’ ammo industry is getting a huge boost by a worldwide, post-9/11 explosion of private security firms. A UN conference on a proposed Arms Trade Treaty ends in New York this Friday. The assembled delegates, some representing underdeveloped nations turned into free-fire zones by the influx of guns, jerks, and steel, are grappling with an estimated 875 million small arms in circulation around the globe. Gotham City has gone global. And good luck finding a Batcave-dwelling billionaire with the intent of disturbing the jokers’ status quo. mwiseguise@yahoo.com

A reader suggests renaming the proposed Kits seawall after a corporate sponsor. photo Dan Toulgoet Or perhaps just calling the whole thing off instead. To the editor: Re: “Paving paradise and putting up a seawall,” July 20. I must side with Allen Garr that to preserve the Point Grey foreshore in as close to its natural state as it now exists is better than to extend the seawall. Nature is mucky, smelly, blocks views, and drips sap on cars, and will someone please stifle those raucous Sunday morning crows and seagulls. Infirm as I am, bonkers and creaky, with thanks to our dear, dear Supreme Court for granting me the option to bring myself off with help from a professional rather than a batched amateur attempt, I would still prefer a hazardous access to wild foreshore. But I may be in the minority. What floats Vancouverites boat is the seawall. So let’s accept the generous donor’s gift with heartfelt thanks, and get on with it, learning

lessons from the seawall so far: 1. Separate the skateboarders and bicyclists et al from us walkers with a median. 2. Provide safety crossings against wheeled collisions with crosswalk lights. 3. Develop strategies to pay for maintenance, e.g. tolls and vehicular access for it. 3. With Vancouver population exploding it will soon be necessary to twin the entire seawall à la Port Mann Bridge. 4. Expropriate those Point Grey Road beachfront houses. They will never be cheaper, unless the inevitable bitumen oil spill from increased tanker traffic in Georgia Straight diminishes the appeal of waterfront living. 5. Rename the seawall after a corporate sponsor. Or, let’s call the whole thing off!

We It’s humans who invade city critter areas want To the editor: Re: “Urban wildlife here to stay so get used to it,” July 18. Urban wildlife will be the losers as long as we ofteninhumane humans keep on building houses, condo complexes and office towers, etcetera, on the non-human life-forms’ territories. Then, too-often it’s only a matter of waiting for “wild, stray” animals to threaten or attack newly arrived human

Roger Henning, Vancouver

inhabitants before the latter act—which is usually to kill the wild animal. Of course the very-inconvenienced humans could bother themselves with making it a solid habit, perhaps even municipal bylaw, to dose the “wild, stray” animals with as much potent tranquilizer necessary to encase and relocate them all, alive and well. But it appears that humanity’s superior-minded nature allows its collective conscience to

simply “cull” such animal life for reacting in their natural, predatory manner. How can humanity justify snuffing out wild animals that stray into human-occupied communities when humans were the ones who came along and procured the animals from their formerly wild territory to make way for our own homes and infrastructure? Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock

49 rental units precious in West End To the editor: Re: “Comox project an affront to West End,” Letters, July 20. The only thing I’m a cheerleader for is creating more rental housing. I asked the City of Vancouver to preserve all of the original Maxine’s and incorporate it into the new development—an idea I have been promoting for years—and pressed for more rental. Forty-nine rental units may not seem like much to the tens of thousands of condo owners in our city but to renters in this market they are precious. As for the purported 800 units of market rentals Greg Helten says were built in the West End, I’d be surprised if there were 800 units of any type of market housing built here over the past 15 years, let alone market rentals. Besides, it is the past 10 years since the provin-

cial Liberals came to power and began massive cuts in programs and spending that have seen the intensification of the rental housing crisis in this city. This, coupled with former NPA-dominated city councils’ gentrification of most city neighbourhoods. Renters should be very cautious about supporting views such as Helten’s (who lives near 1401 Comox St.). He and the others, mainly property owners who seem to form the core of anti-STIR groups, have no one’s interest at heart but their own. They offer no solutions, only delays, to dealing with the housing crisis because they prefer the status quo of rental housing erosion and luxury condo replacement as they believe it will increase their property values.

NDP candidate lost close 2011 byelection race to newly minted premier

Eby considers rematch with Clark in Vancouver-Point Grey Mike Howell Staff writer The NDP candidate who almost beat Premier Christy Clark in the VancouverPoint Grey byelection in May 2011 is seriously considering taking on the premier a second time. David Eby said Wednesday “it is certainly an exciting possibility” that he will seek the nomination for the riding, where Clark’s margin of victory was 595 votes. “Certainly, it’s at front of mind and it’s something that I’d love to do,” Eby told the Courier. “It’s just whether or not it’s going to work out with the timing.” Eby is the executive director of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, a position from which he took a leave of absence when he became the NDP’s candidate in the byelection race. The NDP’s riding association hasn’t selected a date for a nomination meeting but Eby confirmed the nomination committee contacted him about running again. “I’m happy in my job but I’ve also got to pay my rent,” he said. “So if they call a nomination meeting really early, it might be more difficult. But if they hold off for a while, it might be more likely.” Eby’s interest in taking another shot at the riding came one day after Clark told CKNW radio that she plans to seek re-election next spring in the riding. There was speculation she might seek out a more

Various public opinion polls released over the past few months have shown the NDP well ahead of the Liberals going into next spring’s provincial election. This time around, the B.C. Conservative Party plans to run a candidate

in the riding, which could take votes away from the Liberals. The party believes it presents an option for people “who are tired of the way Liberals do business but really don’t want to go back to the dark days of the ’90s with the NDP,” said party leader John Cummins. The Conservatives haven’t chosen a candidate for the

Vancouver-Point Grey riding but Cummins said he recognizes the profile the riding will get in the media. “You would like to have high profile candidates in every riding, but it doesn’t always work that way,” he said, adding that he will leave the selection of a candidate to the party’s constituency association. “We’ll just have to wait and

see what happens.” Cummins said the party’s nomination meetings will begin in September. The party plans to run candidates in all ridings. In her victory speech on the night of the byelection, Clark said one of the lessons her supporters should learn about the results is not enough people voted.

Just over 15,000 of roughly 40,000 eligible voters cast a ballot for a 38 per cent turnout. The other lesson, she said, was the NDP earned a better result than the previous provincial election. “We cannot count on the New Democrat vote to be split,” she said. “What we have to count on is that our vote is going to come together. And if people care about good government, open government, family government, government that creates jobs, government that respects your money and treats it the way that you would, then you have to remember that we have to come together.” Clark was crowned leader of the B.C. Liberal Party in February 2011 after narrowly defeating former health minister Kevin Falcon in the party’s leadership race. She won despite only having the support of one member of caucus, Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy. The race was necessary after former premier Gordon Campbell resigned and later gave up his seat in Vancouver-Point Grey so Clark could run in the byelection. Campbell held the riding since 1996. Clark won the byelection without participating in any candidates debates, preferring to hold a “telephone town hall” and a forum at a church attended mainly by loyal supporters. The provincial election is May 2013. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

Waldorf Hotel hosts Sunday gatherings to Sept. 2.

Food truck vendors gather for East Side food fest Cheryl Rossi

Staff writer

Following the success of The Waldorf’s Canada Day Block Party that saw an estimated 5,000 visitors sample fare from the city’s largest gathering of food trucks to date, a rotating roster of 18 food cart vendors will sling treats in the parking lot on Sundays starting this weekend. The Food Cart Fest will run from noon to 6 p.m., each Sunday from July 29 to Sept. 2. Danny Fazio, brand and design director for The Waldorf, says organizers of the Canada Day Block Party didn’t expect several thousand people to show up to the event that included 11 food trucks. “That really inspired that ‘this is great, let’s just do it [attitude],’” he said. “Summer is finite in Vancouver.

Participating food carts in the weekly fest so far include La Brasserie, Soho Road, Off the Wagon, Re-Up BBQ, The Juice Truck, Mom’s Grilled Cheese, Cartel Taco, Street Meat, Pig on the Street, Guanaco and Holy Perogy. Zach Berman, co-owner of The Juice Truck and a director on the board of the Vancouver Street Food Society, expects specific schedules to be posted on The Waldorf’s website. The society is presenting the family friendly event with the Waldorf and the Yelp online review site.

Looks like the A-maze-ing Laughter sculpture installation at English Bay is here to stay, thanks to the Wilson family of Lululemon fame. This, of course, begs the question: will the popular figures eventually end up clad in yoga pants and cute hoodies? Chip and Sharon Wilson donated $1.5 million US to the Vancouver Biennale Open Air Museum for the purchase of A-maze-ing Laughter, which was installed in 2009 by the Vancouver Biennale Foundation as a temporary exhibit. The non-profit received such positive feedback from the public about the bronze sculptures that earlier this year it began fundraising to purchase the installation. In April, before the money was raised, the park board accepted the long-term loan of A-maze-ing Laughter. At the time, the park board had no

Photographer Vince Hemingson of Vanishing Tattoo doc behind project

Marathon shoot of inked skin results in The Tattoo Project Sandra Thomas Staff writer Photographer and filmmaker Vince Hemingson calls tattoos a window to a person’s soul. “If the body is a temple, then tattoos are its stained glass windows,” he said. Hemingson should know. In 2010, he organized a three-day marathon photography shoot that included 100 tattooed models and 11 photographers. A casting call went out asking anyone with tattoos to take part in exchange for $25 and a 16-by 20-inch portrait. One of the results of the shoot is a 200-page, fine art book called The Tattoo Project. The book is available for pre-sale now through Amazon. com and is expected to be on book store shelves in August. “Because of the $25 cash we had a lot of street people show up, which was great,” said Hemingson. “But we also had a lawyer show up in his suit.” Because tattoos are all about skin, Hemingson said the suit didn’t stay on for long. The book is divided into sections featuring work by each photographer, and depending on their interpretation, some models are naked while others wear very A new fine art book about tattoos is the result of a marathon photo shoot that little. included 100 models and 11 photographers.

clad each of his models in classic white, sleeveless undershirts, while Johnathon Vaughn paired side-by-side photographs of one of each of the model’s eyes next to a favourite tattoo. And while photographer Rosamond Norbury’s photos glow with red, each of the offerings from Marc Koegel are awash in sepia tones. Other photographers included in the book are Wayne A. Höecherl, Melanie Jane, Spencer Kovats, Syx Langemann, Aura McKay and Jeff Weddell. The forward is written by author and Courier contributor PJ Reece. A detailed account of the shoot is written by Oregon-based Bob Baxter, editorin-chief of TattooRoadTrip.com and past editor-in-chief of tattoo magazine Skin & Ink for 14 years, who flew in for the threeday shoot. The historical significance and cultural anthropology of tattoos has fascinated Hemingson for years, and in 1999 he launched the Vanishing Tattoo website, which claims more than 20 million hits a year. In a quest to study and photograph the tattoos of indigenous peoples, Hemingson has visited more than 90 countries. His quest to preserve a record of these vanishing tribal tattoos

Vancouver tattoo artist Thomas Lockhart was also initially involved in the project, which was the focus of a Courier cover story 10 years ago. Like The Vanishing Tattoo, the video shot during the three days of The Tattoo Project will become a documentary film. Videos and interviews with the models are posted on the project website, tattooproject.net. Hemingson said he had no idea the project would ever make a profit. In 2010, he was hoping to break even for the cost of the venue and equipment rental for the multi-day shoot. But with the release of this book, Hemingson and his fellow creators of The Tattoo Project have decided to donate proceeds to the Ray-Cam Co-operative Centre in the Downtown Eastside. The inner city centre offers support, such as day care, for some of this city’s poorest residents. “They do the work of angels,” said Hemingson. “It’s the least we can do.” sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: sthomas10

Fired predecessor notes ‘natural tension’ between planning and development

New planner charged with carrying out city vision Mike Howell Staff writer What type of changes can Vancouverites expect to see when the city’s new general manager of planning and development begins his job next month? The answer, it appears, is not up to Brian Jackson but to the Vision Vancouver-led council whose priorities are to build affordable housing and transit-oriented development. “He is keenly aware of the challenges we face and we look forward to him working with our local neighbourhoods, businesses and not-for-profit communities to implement our vision for the future of Vancouver,” said Mayor Gregor Robertson Tuesday in a news release announcing Jackson’s appointment. Jackson, who lives in Yaletown, is the acting general manager of planning and development in Richmond.

The 57-year-old University of B.C. graduate has 32 years of planning experience and worked previously in California, Nevada and Ontario. He replaces Brent Toderian, who was fired in February after six years as the city’s head planner. To this day, Toderian believes his termination was related to management style. Toderian wouldn’t elaborate on why he was fired but acknowledged there are often “natural tensions” between the city’s planning direction and development. Jackson now assumes management of both areas. “There are often natural tensions between the planning role, which is often how great the city is built, and sometimes the development role, which is about how fast it can be built,” Toderian said. “It’s been a very long and important tradition in Vancouver for very creative and progressive city building, and there’s a cul-

ture of that. That’s certainly the culture in the planning department. So I think it’s very important for Vancouver that that be maintained and even enhanced.” The Courier relayed Toderian’s comments to Jackson, who said Wednesday he believes his experience working on the planning side and managing development applications will reduce the tension. “It’s when the vision is so conceptual and so flexible that when an application comes in and people don’t know what the ground rules are, that that’s when the tension happens,” he said. “If we develop area plans that have specificity to them so that the community knows what’s going on, so the council knows what’s going on, so the developer knows what’s going on, then I think you can reduce that tension.” Jackson said overseeing how the city accommodates growth will also be central

He believes there is a misconception in the public that “the city is out of control” with how it’s growing. “Accommodating growth that we anticipate, really doesn’t affect the vast majority of the land base that we have here in Vancouver,” he said. “You’re really looking at changing areas along the major arterials.” Gordon Price, a former NPA city councillor and current director of the city program at Simon Fraser University, said the city made a good choice in get-

Third annual ‘spontaneous sharing’ event inspired by Burning Man

The great grilled cheese giveaway Cheryl Rossi

Staff writer

Two Vancouverites inspired by Burning Man will toast golden brown grilled cheese sandwiches Saturday and hand them out for free at the third annual Amazing Grilled Cheese Giveaway. This year’s event will happen for the first time with the help of a $500 grant from the Vancouver Foundation. “I went over and talked to [foundation representatives] and they said, oh yeah, you’re a committee favourite, we love you guys,” said 40-year-old Toby Armitt, who co-hosts the event in front of his home on the Adanac bike route on Union Street at Princess Avenue. Co-host Joni McKervey said the “spontaneous sharing” they encountered at the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert inspired the two friends to share that sensibility in Vancouver. Armitt’s Strathcona neighbours were quick to latch onto the inaugural event. “After six or eight months, Toby had people coming up to him going, when are you going to do that grilled cheese thing again?” McKervey said. The pair continues to hand out triangles of melted orange cheddar, which numbered more than 300

Joni McKervey and Toby Armitt plan to give away hundreds of grilled cheese sandwiches Saturday between 1 photo Dan Toulgoet p.m. and 9 p.m. at 624 Union St. in Strathcona. half sandwiches in 2010 and double that in 2011, because they like the experience. “People are really surprising,” said 32-year-old McKervey, who describes herself as “a relaxer in a hustler’s world” on Twitter.

“You could say I expect the person in their 40s in their spandex bike gear to not respond to me because they look like maybe it’s just a professional who’s out for a cycle and they’re probably really goal oriented or not

very playful or something. Then I yell at them with the megaphone and they come around and they’re like, oh yeah, sure I’m hungry, so they end up meeting somebody next to them who lives down the street.”

She said some passersbys react with clear mistrust, but most enjoy receiving a free treat. “This one time, I was manning the megaphone and this guy was riding by and I said, ‘Hey, do you

want a free grilled cheese sandwich?’ and he went, ‘I can’t eat cheese!’” McKervey said. “He sounded kind of mad at me.” They’ll provide a vegan option for this year. Last year, people brought them food from their gardens and one woman gave them a keg of beer from the back seat of her car. “It’s interesting what happens when you start giving stuff away just for no other reason than to do it,” said Armitt, a camera assistant for the film industry. “People started getting into the spirit, they started thinking if you can do it, we’ll do something.” The Strathcona Community Centre and Benny’s Market are donating bread this year. McKervey recently saw a photo of a sandwich from Victoria that was branded with an image of Che Guevara and dubbed “guerill’d cheese sandwich.” “It said ‘Free food for free people,’” she said. “I don’t know if we’ve tapped into some kind of weird grilled cheese-giving zeitgeist and this is just spontaneously happening other places.” The giveaway runs from 1 to 9 p.m. The event will be live streamed on the ustream. tv channel called Grilled Cheese TV! crossi@vancourier.com Twitter: @Cheryl_Rossi

Tablets pushing laptops to margins of ‘serious’ work The Practical Geek with Barry Link

Your next computer will be a tablet. Just as laptops replaced desktops as the preferred choice for computing use in the home, tablets like the iPad are supplanting laptops and pushing them to the margins for “serious” work. In many ways, the change is bad. Tablets are not as powerful or flexible as PCs. Their screens are smaller and their use for productive work is dependent on expensive peripherals like physical keyboards. They’re not necessarily cheap, not meant to last and tend to be physically and virtually locked up tight to the hardware, content and software ecosystem of the company that makes them. A PC is the best tool box you’ve ever owned. A tablet is a cool toaster. But for most of us, a toaster is all we need as long as toast is all we want. Tablets are much lighter and more portable than laptops, and their touch-based interfaces, when well done, are natural to use. They don’t require an office or desk. All you need is a couch and your hands. You have two decisions when choosing a tablet: 1) what size; 2) which operating system.

The Nexus 7 by Asus may have replaced RIM’s Playbook as the best tablet deal in Canada. photo courtesy Asus Size matters: Tablets are evolving into two major sizes: 10inch and seven-inch, as measured by the diagonal size of the screen. The iPad, at 9.7 inches, is in the 10-inch range. The BlackBerry Playbook is seven inches. The seven-inch tablets are by far the more

portable. They fit easily in one hand and can be slipped into a purse, bag or large coat pocket. They can do anything their larger counterparts can and make excellent as e-readers. They are also cheaper. The downside is the smaller screen. Web surfing works just fine, but unless you’re looking at the mobile version of websites you will be pinching and zooming with your fingers to magnify text and images. Video will also be smaller—comfort when watching The Hunger Games will depend on your eyesight. Ten-inch tablets are less portable. They won’t fit in a coat pocket and if you have to buy a separate bag to carry one around, you’re wasting money. But they make natural home-based devices. They are excellent for surfing the web and doing light work such as email or Twitter, and their larger screen is great for gaming and watching video, especially for older people. They seem too large for e-readers to me, but friends use them that way and like it. Bottom line: If you want portable, look at seven inches. If it’s for the home or office, go large. Operator, information: Like smartphones and computers, tablets run on operating systems. The iPad runs the same OS as the iPhone and iPod touch. If you have an Apple-centric household, go iPad. It’s still considered the best tablet on the market, and for Canadians it has by far the widest availability of apps and content like video and

music compared to any other tablet for sale in our northern tech ghetto. Be warned: iPads are expensive, with the cheapest model in Canada selling for $419. The next choice is Android, the operating system created by Google. Android tablets come from a variety of manufacturers with prices from cheap to ridiculously high. Android on tablets has had a difficult evolution catching up to the iPad, but if you find the right price, it can make you happy. I tried out a preview 10inch Acer Iconia Tab earlier this year running an earlier version of Android. Aside from some quirks and Android’s fewer apps for tablets, it was useful and fun. Also seriously look at the Nexus 7 Android tablet by Asus, which just hit the market. At seven inches, it’s reportedly a powerhouse going for the incredible price of $209. RIM’s Playbook was a troubled product when it debuted last year, but after a major software update and dramatic price cuts its smooth hardware and interface made it the best tablet deal in Canada until the arrival of the Nexus 7. Its critical flaw: lack of apps, Netflix and Skype being two painful examples. Finally, there’s Windows 8, which is Microsoft’s radical reset of its Windows operating system coming out in October. Reviewer opinions vary on advance looks at the interface, but be prepared for a flood of Windows 8 tablets this fall. blink@vancourier.com Twitter: @trueblinkit

The Vancouver Pride Parade route this year travels along Robson Street to Denman, turns onto Beach Avenue and ends at Sunset Beach for the annual Pride Festival. There are dozens of Pride events taking place during the next week or so, including the Terry Wallace Memorial Breakfast, Aug. 4.

The highlight of this year’s Pride festivities is the parade Aug. 5. file photo Kevin Hill

Hopefully the only rain Vancouver Pride 2012 will see during the next 10 days or so will be of the male variety. There are dozens of Pride events, both official and with partners, taking place now through Aug.

6, but the highlight of each season is the parade, which this year starts at noon Aug. 5. New to the Pride Parade this year is an addition to the memorial float, also known as the “reflection” float. Leading up to the parade memorial ribbons will be available at kiosks at all official Pride events for friends and family to write the name of a loved one who passed away. Those ribbons will be attached to a float to give it a rainbow hue. Vancouver Pride Society president Tim Richards says the idea for the ribbons came after staff and volunteers decided the minute of silence called for during the parade wasn’t working. “It’s hard for a float with loud music to all of a sudden turn it off at just the right moment,” he says. “This way people can reflect along the parade route.” Social media will also play a bigger role in the parade. Spectators can vote on their favourite floats as they pass by and post pictures and videos to votepride.ca. This year’s parade grand marshals include longtime volunteer, fundraiser and community leader Bill Munroe, whom rumour has it, will be dressed as the Queen and will ride along the parade route in a horsedrawn carriage. Transgendered beauty contestant Jenna Talackova is also a grand marshal. Talackova recently fought for the right to participate in the Miss Universe Canada competition as a transgendered woman.

Unplugging phone with caller ID one of nine ways to protect yourself

Open house is open invitation to identity theft Susanne Morrow REW.ca

Touring an open house recently, I was immediately able to tell the home was occupied by a single individual, living alone. Tell-tale signs were evident throughout the house. When I stage a home it’s important for me to not only declutter, neutralize and stage the house to sell quickly, but to focus on “depersonalizing” the home as well. It’s important that the realtor and home stager work together in educating the homeowner on the importance of protecting their privacy before any showings occur and prior to any open houses. Most of us are generally trust-

westcoast realty

ing in nature, and that’s a good character trait. It’s important to see the goodness in all people. However, the reality is that we live in an age where identity theft is on the rise, and personal protection is imperative. Once the for sale sign goes up on the front lawn, a seller is at risk. Depersonalizing a home means more than simply taking down Uncle Buck’s photo from the fireplace and removing the finger-painting artwork from the fridge door. Identity theft can occur when private information is left in sight during showings and open houses. How many times have you walked into a house and noticed utility bills on the kitchen

counter or cheque books, voter registration cards, pay stubs, and so on? These items are an open invitation to thieves. Depersonalizing the home means moving all of these items from sight and keeping them in a safe, secure location. A locked desk drawer would be good place to house these items until after a firm agreement of purchase and sale is in place. Below is a list of nine ways to protect yourself. 1. Remove all private or personal photos, diplomas, awards and trophies. 2. Remove all calendars. These often contain a great deal of private information, often noting when you’re not going to be home.

3. Store all valuables. 4. Remove all bills, letters, magazines and library books. Shred papers with personal information that are no longer needed. 5. Password protect your computer to block access to your private files. 6. Turn off your printer and fax machine before each showing. Printers and fax machines often have the capability of printing the last numbers dialed or received. 7. Turn off answering machines. This avoids personal messages being left while strangers are in your home. 8. Unplug phones with caller ID features. 9. Remove or conceal digital devices that contain information

Picks of the week

1. Enjoy “Summer Nights” on a summer night as Fresh Air Cinema screens Grease July 31 at Stanley Park’s Ceperley Meadow. Tell me more, tell me more. OK… bring a blanket, it starts at sunset and it’s free. Info at freshaircinema.ca. 2. Vancouver indie bands get their freak on at the British Ex-Servicemen Association (1143 Kingsway) for the Summer Freak Out Festival July 27 and 28. Presented by VanMusic.ca, CiTR and Dirty Spells, the two-night blowout features cheap drinks, free pool, tacos and a slew of local talent including Defektors, Slim Fathers and Capitol 6, among others. More info at citr.ca.

3. There was time before Twitter, before Facebook, before society rediscovered its love of bacon that Vancouver’s thriving roots music scene was the talk of other people’s towns and celebrated at an annual showcase/hootenanny known as RANCHfest. Then it rode off into the sunset only to live on in the whisky-soaked memories of those lucky enough to be a part of it. RANCHfest gets reheated with two shows of twangy goodness July 28. Butch Murphy and the Greasy Kings, Howard Rix and the Stingin’ Hornets, Doug Andrews and Circus in Flames, The Krikeys, Ana Bonbon and Mac Pontiac tear it up at the WISE Hall, while over at Little Mountain Gallery, country swinger Petunia gets cozy with Rodney Decroo an the Minimalist Jug Band. For more info, go to northern-electric.ca. 4. Over the past five years, musical tourist Zach Condon has taken his band Beirut to such exotic and stylistic locales as Eastern European folk, Parisian cafes and the mariachi-filled streets of Mexico and the American Southwest. The band brings its passports to the Orpheum Theatre July 28 in support of its latest album The Riptide. Alas, this one’s sold out.

kudos & kvetches There is a light that will never go out

This Saturday, the lumpen masses once again descend upon English Bay like fixated babies under the spell of a Fisher Price mobile for the Celebration of Light fireworks competition. As with previous light shows, K&K plans to spend an inordinate amount of time avoiding the hellish event while paradoxically obsessing over why so many people attend. Can 400,000 people really be wrong? Upon further soul searching, we’ve started to wonder if the problem might be us. Did something happen in our childhood that’s made us adverse to large crowds who leave inordinate amounts of litter, the intoxicating scent of vomit and Wildcat beer on the breath of nearby teenagers? Don’t we like knife fights and punching police horses? Why can’t we just relax and enjoy the breathtaking commingling of ABBA and Mozart as tendrils of lights cast its magic across the night’s sky? And how can we better accept this beautiful gift that sponsors Benson & Hedges, HSBC and now Honda have bestowed upon us like a treasure chest of pyrotechnical marvels for so many years?

Maybe, as that old TV show theme song written by Alan Thicke, Gloria Loring and Al Burton once said, it really does take different strokes to move the world. Maybe the Celebration of Light is worth celebrating. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s not you, Vancouver, it’s us.

Axe and ye shall receive

Like many Vancouverites, some of the outdoorsier members of K&K occasionally enjoy trading the comforts of urban life for sleeping on the ground, getting bitten by insects and answering the call of nature in foul-smelling outhouses when camping at one our country’s many treasured national parks. Sadly, Parks Canada has fallen on hard times recently after the Harper government announced it’s axing $29-million from the department’s next budget, meaning some parks will be open for shorter seasons and more than 600 staff—many of them troublemaking scientists—will soon be out of work. While some taxpayers might want our centuryold parks system to continue to thrive, it’s not as if those fancy new prisons, fighter jets, War

of 1812 reenactments or Bev Oda’s retirement party are simply going to pay for themselves. Even still, we were surprised to discover how desperate some park workers have seemingly become when, after returning to our campsite in the Kootenays after a relaxing day of not catching any fish, we discovered a ranger stealing our firewood. The log larcenist explained that pieces of wood longer than 18 inches aren’t permitted inside park firepits and she naturally assumed we wouldn’t be in possession of, say, an axe with which to chop up any of the longer pieces. We were, however, offered some primo wood for the low, low price of just eight bucks a bundle. While it all smelled a bit suspect, we were assured the wood totally hadn’t been chopped down within park boundaries or taken from someone else’s campsite and that instead they have a guy who hooks them up with it. In retrospect, we should’ve asked if they had fish for sale, too. k&k@vancourier.com Twitter: @KudosKvetches

Artwork includes biodegradable dresses, wooden ‘Zipper,’ stone sculpture that will unfurl over 30 years

VanDusen Garden goes au naturel for Earth Art exhibit State of the Arts

with Cheryl Rossi Chris Booth wrote the Musqueam people two months before he travelled from New Zealand to Vancouver to see whether they’d collaborate on the sculpture he was to create for the Earth Art exhibit at VanDusen Botanical Garden. “It’s always important to me, wherever I am, to work with indigenous people, even when I’m working in Wales or in Cornwall or in France or Italy, but particularly these colonized countries like New Zealand, Australia, Canada, U.S.A.,” said the man who’s worked extensively with Maori people in his native land on projects that include stone blankets based on Maori designs that he’s “draped” over big boulders. The Musqueam have approved his project and will hold a special ceremony to name the piece. Booth is one of five international and local artists creating sculptural works fashioned from natural materials within VanDusen’s 55 acres for an exhibit that runs until Sept. 30, but his piece is expected to unfurl over the next 30 years. Booth arrived in Vancouver July 8, secured a front-end loader, freed spare rocks meant for seawall construction from tangles of bramble and started building his work near the Gitksan totem poles at VanDusen. Two circles of stones propped up with logs will form “petals” around a central stone protrusion in the middle of

It’ll take 30 years to be fully realized, probably.” As the tree grows and fungi eat away at the wood, the stone petals will fall out to unfold the sculpture like a flower. “I’m a very strong believer in trying to educate people about climate change and especially about the lesser seen and understood and known organisms on the planet,” Booth said. Local artist Nicole Dextras wants to inspire women to reconsider their clothes-buying habits with her Little Green Dress Projekt. She’s constructing 28 madeto-measure dresses for specific women of all ages and sizes who

support eco-fashion. Instead of a little black dress, Dextras believes every woman should own an item of clothing that was produced in a sustainable and equitable manner. Her muses have supplied their own material for each organic number that bears their name. The hem of “Cat,” which Dextras was shaping Monday afternoon, drips with purple flowering butterfly bush. The “Sharon” features a collar of mountain ash berries and magnolia buds, a bodice of sleek green, shiny rhododendron leaves fastened with thorns and trimmed with tea leaves, a stiff top skirt of straw-like grass and an under layer of autumn-hued magnolia leaves. The creations will be worn at the exhibit’s opening, Aug. 2, and then left to decay on wooden stands in the perennial garden. “It’s all about change, which

was something I was trying to express for a long time in my other work, but I could never really get to it,” Dextras said. The paper sculptor and photographer started working with organic material by chance. “It snowed in Vancouver and I got locked in for two weeks and then I started, just out of a whim, freezing dresses in my backyard,” said the now 56year-old resident of Arbutus Ridge. The other participating artists include sculptor Michael Dennis, who hails from Denman Island and often works with the detritus of the logging industry, and NilsUdo, one of the world’s foremost earth art sculptors from Bavaria who’s known for his colossal nests, one of which features a child nestled within its branches on Peter Gabriel’s Ovo album cover.

Grande favours the way environmental art, which flourished after a seminal Earthworks show in 1968 in New York City, differs from works displayed in a gallery. “There’s climate, everything around affecting you when you’re walking around looking at the work and it’s a tactile experience,” he said. “Everyone likes the interactivity of it.” For more information, see vandusengarden.org.

If you don’t already have a highly coveted booking at Cactus Club on English Bay, Lolita’s South of the Border photos Tim Pawsey Cantina is a spicy alternative during the Celebration of Light fireworks competition.

Where to eat before and after the fireworks The Hired Belly with Tim Pawsey

With the Celebration of Light fireworks competition starting this Saturday (July 28) and running until Aug. 4, you may be racking your brains for the best pre- or post-pyrotechnic eats. If you’re coveting a prime time patio seat, are prepared to open your wallet and move fast, obvious choices include Cactus Club’s Rob Feenie set-menu ($120, with a 6 p.m. seating, 604-714-2060) and Raincity Grill’s 8:15 p.m. set menu ($110 for the patio, $75 inside) with an à la carte menu offered earlier (604-685-7337). You could also check out these Davie Street faves: • Lolita’s (1326 Davie St., 604) 6969996). To say it’s compact is an understatement. But this cozy, pack-em-in cantina punches well above its weight, with some modern takes on the classics. Go for the specials, such as a tasty pair of piping hot crab cakes with coconut and cucumber salsa that goes perfectly with a glass of Stoneboat Pinot Gris. Or

hunker down for affordable beer and cocktails, good sangria and work your way through guacamole and brisket taquitos. This little room always has a great buzz and is well worth the wait— particularly if you want to eat late. • Kadoya (1063 Davie St., 1184 Denman St.). If there’s a crazier sushi list in town, we’ve yet to find it. Chances are you won’t score a seat on the patio at the English Bay hotspot, but who cares? Work your way through whimsical but super fresh sushi rolls, such as the patriotic Canada roll, with bacon and tuna tempura, the Snow White (prawn tempura with fluffy coconut) and the Canuck (spicy tuna, bonito and salmon tempura). • Takis’ Taverna (1106 Davie St., 604-682-1336). The “other” Greek spot on Davie doesn’t get the attention it deserves for hallmarks such as tender kleftiko (lamb shank), hot and cold mezethes and moussaka. Mix in friendly service and Takis adds up to one of the village’s best bets. • Gurkha Kitchen (1141 Davie St., 604565-7965). Head upstairs for Nepalese flavours such as lekaali taama (bamboo shoots with black eyed peas), Sherpa chicken, Tibetan soup, momos (dumplings) and more. It’s a friendly, polished

casual setting with a well-hidden deck. • Bin 941 (941 Davie St., 604-683-1206). The original Bin lures with detail-driven small plates. Bring your palate, damn the decibels, and stay late if you want. ••• Was all the buzz about the right for diners to bring their own wine to restaurants really worth the fuss? Any changes that drag B.C.’s liquor regulations into the 21st century and make us feel like responsible adults give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. But in case you’re wondering how this plays out, here’s some clarification. You still can’t (legally) bring wine (or beer) into unlicensed premises, which in some places is the whole point of BYO. Even then, don’t expect the participating restaurant to welcome you and your cherished bottle of 2008 Gato Negro (BCLS $9.99) with open arms. In fact, they won’t. Like it or not, the spirit of the change to the act is intended to encourage quality over value. If you want to bring wine, best call ahead to make sure the corkage fee isn’t more than the bottle’s worth. Better still, if it’s a special bottle, a good restaurant will build a meal around it. And if you are shocked how much the fee is, it may be an intended deterrent. info@hiredbelly.com

Summer Games lights up Friday

A27

Vancouver athletes compete at London Olympics

Megan Stewart Staff writer

Two years after the Vancouver Winter Games, Vancouver is back at the Olympics. Nearly 20 athletes who live, train and study in this metropolitan are representing Canada at the 2012 London Summer Games. The spectacle begins Friday with the Opening Ceremony, airing at 1 p.m. Pacific time. (CTV, TSN and Sportsnet will broadcast a live feed and preview show beginning at 11 a.m.) Expert number-crunchers, including the Canadian Press and an American economist, predict Canada will win between 17 and 22 medals. The bulk will come in swimming and canoe events. No gold is assured, not in any event to any nation. The excitement and emotion of the Games lies in the ambition, dedication, and remarkable talents of each athlete. Here is a list of Vancouver competitors at the London Summer Games.

Badminton

• As half of the lowest-ranked international mixed doubles team at the Games, Toby Ng is using his underdog status to his advantage. “I hope to come in without any pressure or expectations,” he told the Courier. Ng, 26, is a Vancouver College graduate who put his UBC kinesiology degree on hold to prepare for the Olympics. He plays with 22year-old Calgarian Grace Gao. The Canadians’ opening group stage match against Poland is 12:15 p.m. (all times Pacific) Saturday, July 28.

Javelin

• Liz Gleadle, the Canadian woman’s record holder in javelin, broke her own record at the Harry Jerome Track Classic earlier this summer. The Kitsilano grad competes in the qualification round at 2 a.m. Aug. 7. She must meet the required distance in one of three attempts to advance to the final round 1 p.m. Aug. 9. • In Grade 10 Curtis Moss connected with Burnaby sports legend Don Steen when he tried out for his school tack team. After graduation, he flitted around university athletic programs at SFU, UBC and Southeastern Louisiana. (He was a high school quarterback and played defensive back for the Thunderbirds.) After all that, nearly two years ago he reconnected with Steen. “Now it’s time to focus on my goals and set my sights a little higher.” The men’s javelin qualification round begins 11 a.m. Aug. 8 with the final set for 11:20 a.m. Aug. 11.

As half of the lowest-ranked international mixed doubles team at the Games, Toby Ng is using his underdog status to his advantage.

High Jump

• 25-year-old UBC high jumper Mike Mason returns to the Games after a 19th place finish four years ago at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The qualifying round begins 11 a.m. Aug. 5 and the finals are set for 11 a.m. Aug. 7.

20 km Race Walk

• Mexican-born Inaki Gomez doffed swimming for long-distance endurance walking and never looked back. After the London Games, the Vancouver College and UBC graduate begins law school at the University of Calgary. The 20 km race walk begins Aug. 4 at 11 a.m.

Men’s Four: Rowing

• A junior world champion and University of Washington varsity rower, 23-year-old Vancouver College graduate Anthony Jacobs will compete for Canada in the men’s four. The Canadians race against New Zealand, Australia, Germany and Serbia in the first heat Saturday, July 30 at 2:40 a.m.

Sailing

• Two-time Olympian Nikola Girke makes her third appearance at the Games and London will be the second time she competes as a windsurfer, an event that will not return to Olympic competition in Rio 2016 since it was introduced at the 2008 Games. In Beijing, Girke finished 17th. The Royal Vancouver Yacht Club athlete begins

competition July 31. Fleet races continue Aug. 1 through Aug. 5 and the medal races are set for Aug. 7. • Windsurfer Zac Plavsic, 29, also sails out of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club returns to the Games after a 23rd place finish in Beijing. He finished second at the 2011 World Cup in Holland in 2011. This event runs July 31 though Aug. 6 with the medal races set for 5 a.m. Aug. 8. • Hunter Lowden, 29, who trains out of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, Lowden will race in the 49er class with 34-year-old Toronto sailing partner Gordon Cook. The duo qualified for the London 2012 during the World Championships in Croatia this May. Heats begin July 30 and continue to Aug. 6 with the final set for Aug. 8.

Women’s Soccer

• Seven national team players compete for the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, including Chelsea Stewart, Carmelina Moscato, Brittany Timko, Desiree Scott, Sophie Schmidt, Kaylyn Kyle and Melanie Booth. The football competition began two days before the Opening Ceremony because of the length of the tournament. The Canadians play in Group F with Sweden, Japan and South Africa. They lost 2-1 to the Japanese and play the South Africans Saturday, July 28 at 6:45 a.m.

Swimming

• Scott Dickens (100, 200m breaststroke) missed the 2008 Summer

Games after competing at the Sydney Olympics in 2004. The setback bolstered his resolve. “I’m not going to shoot for anything other than the best and I’m not afraid to say it,” Dickens told the Courier in June. The 100m breaststroke qualifying heats begin Saturday, July 28 just before 2 a.m. He races in Lane 2. The 16 fastest swimmers advance to the medal heat July 29. Dickens competes in the 200m breaststroke July 31 with the medal race set for Aug. 1. • Brent Hayden (100m Freestyle) is favoured to win gold in this event. Heats begin at 2 a.m. on July 31. Hayden races in Lane 5 against a stacked crowd in the final heat of the qualification round. The final is scheduled for Aug. 1 at 2:15 p.m. • Tommy Gossland (4x100m relay) secured the fourth spot on the men’s four-by-100m freestyle relay at the national championships in Montreal earlier this summer. The relay, one of the most exciting events of the Olympics, begins July 29 just before 2 a.m. • London marks the second Olympic competition for Savannah King (400m, 800m freestyle), a Canadian national and university record breaker who trains at the aquatic centre at UBC. The 400m event begins 3:20 a.m. July 29 with King in Lane 7 of the fourth heat. The finals begin later the same day at 2:15 p.m. • Heather MacLean (4x100m freestyle relay) joins her sister Brittany at the 2012 London Games. She trains at UBC and competes in the women’s four-by-100m freestyle relay Aug. 3 at 3:35 a.m. • A bronze medallist at the 2011 world championships, Martha McCabe (200m breaststroke) trains at UBC and competes Aug. 1 just before 3 a.m. She races in Lane 6 of the fourth heat. • Tera Van Beilen (100m, 200m breaststroke) races in both women’s breaststroke events. In the 200m race, she is in Lane 5 of the third heat; the semi-finals follow Aug. 1 and the finals Aug. 2. In the 100m race, Van Beilen races in the fifth heat in Lane 2. The heats begin July 29 at 2:40 a.m., followed by the semi-finals in the afternoon and the finals on July 30.

Men’s Tennis

• At the All England Club in Wimbledon, Vernon-born, Kitsilano-raised Vasek Pospisil plays men’s singles and partners with Daniel Nestor for men’s doubles. He meets fifth-ranked David Ferrer of Spain in the first round. In men’s doubles, Pospisil and Nestor play a Romanian pair. mstewart@vancourier.com Twitter: @MHStewart

For two weeks every two years, Canadians pay attention to amateur sports

Athletes overlooked except in Olympic year Jim Morris Contributing writer It’s a phenomenon that occurs every four summers. Canadians huddle around televisions or sit at computer screens anxious for the women’s 58-kilogram wrestling results or who won the 4x200-metre relay. A person who doesn’t know a bahro chirugi (return punch) from a gullgi chirugi (hook punch) agrees there’s no way the fighter in the blue helmet deserved to win in taekwondo. And the fix was obviously in for the German judge to award that 9.8 in the floor exercise in men’s gymnastics. Yes, the Summer Olympics are on in London. For a couple weeks, Canadian heptathlon star Jessica Zelinka will receive more coverage than Jessica Biel. People who had never heard of Italian swimmer Federica Pellegrini will be looking for her pictures on the Internet. The Canucks

might even be nudged off the front page of the city’s sports sections, barring a Roberto Luongo trade. But come the day after the closing ceremony, it all goes away. Amateur sports coverage will shrink. Shotputter Dylan Armstrong could walk down Robson Street and only turn heads because of his size. Mountain biker Catharine Pendrel wouldn’t be noticed cycling the seawall. In the golden glow that followed, the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics was all about how Canada was united as a nation by amateur sport. The Games created heroes in people like Clara Hughes, Jon Montgomery and Alex Bilodeau. With the Olympic flame now burning in London, it’s hard to find that same excitement among Canadians. Canadians pay attention when an Olympics is happening. We spend outrageous amounts to sit in the

But go to the annual Harry Jerome Track Classic at Swangard Stadium or the Mel Zajac Swim Meet at UBC? Look at the crowd and subtract the parents, siblings, boyfriends, girlfriends and coaches. You quickly realize not many people really care. Olympic achievement is still measured by medals. When Canada won a record 14 gold at the Vancouver Winter Games, the millions of dollars spent by Own the Podium (OTP) was judged

a success. When the Olympics ended, the corporate funding for OTP vanished. Now it’s the federal government that provides most of the $33.3 million OTP will spend on Olympic and Paralympic sports in 20122013. Jane Roos is the founder and executive director of CAN Fund, which has raised more than $14 million to help finance athletes. She would like to see more funding from corporate Canada. She has an idea for NHL hockey players to

adopt amateur Canadian athletes and believes some sports organizations can do more to help themselves. The government’s funding for Olympic sport works out to around $2 per capita, which is less than a cup of coffee. But at a time when many Canadians are concerned about obesity and inactivity, wouldn’t it make more sense for government money to go into grassroots sports? Building more recreation centres and funding athletic programs would make people fitter and maybe even raise interest in sports. The Canadian Olympic Committee’s goal for London is for Canada to finish 12th in the medal standings. That will probably require around 24 medals. Various predictions have Canada winning between 17 and 22 medals. Among the country’s best medal hopes are people like Armstrong, Pendrel, wrestler Carol Huynh and diver Alex

Despatie. Anne Merklinger, OTP’s chief executive officer, says the top-12 objective is “very ambitious.’’ Mark Tewksbury, the Canadian chef de mission and Olympic swimming gold medallist in Barcelona, calls it “a bit of a stretch and it’s not going to be easy.’’ It’s easy to criticize the Olympics. Corporate greed is matched by extravagance and massive egos. There still are moments of sportsmanship and humanity. Like when the crowd in Sydney cheered wildly to encourage Eric Moussambani, a swimmer from Equatorial Guinea, as he finished last in a 100 metre freestyle heat. Take a break from the results and look for these moments during the London Games. And when the Games end, maybe go watch some local sports events before the next Olympics. jamesmorris@shaw.ca

MOORE, Richard Donald June 13, 1959 - July 19, 2012

Richard Moore passed peacefully on Thursday, July 19, 2012 with his loving spouse of 21 years, Charles Nagy, at his side. His passing is a huge loss for those of us whose lives he touched so profoundly. Richard was an intelligent, outgoing man with a sense of adventure. He and Charles travelled extensively. Richard was very accomplished – a sought-after model in Vancouver and Toronto in the 1970s, owner of a successful business, Ralston Zales, in the 1980s, and later became an associate at CIBC. Charles wishes to thank the medical team who attended to Richard. Their compassion and care was appreciated. He faced his battle with cancer with courage and dignity. Richard loved and accepted all. As per his request, a private graveside service was held Thursday, July 26, 2012. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Tapestry Foundation for Health Care would be appreciated.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The whole week is romantic. If you’re not in the market, the same influence brings you beauty, pleasure, joy in kids, and a favourable risk-reward outlook, in stocks, speculation, etc. An old flame could return. Remember, don’t start any major projects before Aug. 8. Love exists Sunday, though on “low heat.” A new/old friend might come Monday, and he/she will have an effect on your ambitions, career or status in the world. Work uncomplainingly Tuesday. Flirtation, joy, popularity and grand hopes for the future arrive Wednesday/Thursday. Retreat, lie low late week. Taurus April 20-May 20: This week starts with mysteries and changes (Sunday) but soon switches, Monday/Tuesday, into a more intellectual, legal, cultural atmosphere. These two days are an unusual mixture of friendliness, career blessings and monetary stability/luck tied to work or health – along with unpredictable nerves (Monday) and practical/ethical warnings (Tuesday). Remember, don’t start ANY important projects before Aug. 8. Your prestige soars midweek – at the very least, people call you Ma’am or Sir. Butter up higher-ups. Hopes come true Friday/Saturday. All week, seek home, kids, rest. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your lucky year – best in 13. It started in June.Those of you born in May might already be feeling it. Remember two holdups: 1) now through Aug. 7, don’t start projects; 2) now through Aug. 30, karma is still “watching you,” so a) behave, b) try to figure out how your past actions have begat consequences, and c) seek others; reject independence. Though August makes you wait, it distracts you with enjoyable travel, friends, conversations, curiosity and discoveries. DON’T buy, invest, Monday/Tuesday. Love, understanding and inspiration come Wednesday/Thursday.

Surrey

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing before Aug. 8. The main accent lies on money, earnings, possessions – and a sensual attraction. If one of these returns from the past, especially if from the “heavier side”Wednesday/Thursday, go ahead, grab a winner! (By “heavier” I mean sex and commitment more than sensuality, investment or debt reduction more than earnings, etc.) Tackle chores Sunday. Relationships offer conflict and disappointment, as well as prestige and comfort (and a valuable secret?) Monday/Tuesday. Pick well. Sweet, gentle understanding arrives Friday (best) and Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: I’d warn you against starting new ventures/relationships, but your present indecision is a natural deterrent. Relax, let events flow: the fears and uncertainties of the last 15 years have made you a mild control freak. Now through mid-2013, you’ll be much luckier if you let the cosmos have control. (E.g., you can’t force a wish to come true, but the cosmos – the matrix surrounding you – can, and likely will during this lucky year, bring your deepest wishes true.) Savour someone’s beauty Sunday. Work carefully Monday/ Tuesday. Exciting meetings midweek! Friday brings deeper fires. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Don’t start new ventures, investments or relationships before Aug, 8. Instead, handle overdue government or administrative tasks and paperwork; fulfill old obligations to shut-ins and charities; and seek spiritual horizons. Higher-ups still love you. Show them what you can do (especially Wednesday/Thursday) without starting new projects. Money flows swiftly to Aug. 23 (to you and through you: be careful with spending). Home sweet home, Sunday. Romantic notions can lure you into a stew of sexual urge and disappointment Monday/Tuesday. Exciting meetings Friday/Saturday.

July 29 - Aug. 4, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Expect popularity, optimism, social delights, flirtations and wish fulfillment. Before Aug. 8, they will be old wishes, former friends, old (light) flames. Before then, pursue unfamiliar faces at your peril – new relationships will blossom after the 8th. Until late August, you’ll be more assertive and determined than usual – but don’t go wild with this. Sunday’s for errands. Protect home, family Monday/Tuesday: love’s good, wise. Romance has a splendid chance Wednesday/ Thursday. (Married? Pursue kids’ programs, art, beauty, pleasure.) To work you go, Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start no new projects before Aug. 8. Meantime, any “investments” you made in the past in your career or reputation might now pay off (likely July 29 or Aug. 5/6). Work can be hard and burdensome until Aug. 23, but it carries future benefits, so keep at it. Benefits either continue to flow your way from past financial or intimate commitments, or your past actions now prevent such payoffs – but September onward, the bonanza gates will open. Chase money Sunday. Guard speech, writing, driving Monday/Tuesday. Success at home midweek. Romance, pleasure Friday/Saturday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Start no new projects nor relationships before Aug. 8. An old flame (or a former “teacher”) might return – so might books, letters, philosophies and international or educational contacts from the past. Others remain gracious, generous – this will last for 11 more months. Your energy and charisma sail high Sunday. Be alert to money problems Monday/Tuesday. (A great friendship, love or romance might distract you.) Talk, travel, handle paperwork and errands Wednesday/ Thursday – all’s smooth, easy, friends are friendly! Settle into home, kids, garden Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Don’t start anything new before Aug. 8, especially in financial or intimate zones. This is an excellent time for research or self-examination. Your work scene is still pleasant, co-workers are affectionate, but bosses remain temperamental until Aug. 23. Their impatience hints that they are planning/handling a big increase in business, or a big project – and you, over the months ahead, will see your duties and hours expand. Rest Sunday. Your charisma, energy rise high Monday/ Tuesday: use them to solve home, career, income problems. Chase money Thursday/Friday: lucky! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: You’ll feel energized or flat, co-operative or belligerent, as relationships either please or defy you. Start no new projects/relationships before Aug. 8.Your romantic, speculative, creative and pleasure-loving instincts are running hot, but these contain a (mildly) negative karmic element until Aug. 30. So deflect – gently – those who chase you before then. (A Libra might have his/her eye on you – and to a Leo, you represent the future. But it’s Gemini who really has your heart. But – unless a former flame returns this week – wait.) Avoid head office, gov’t, Monday/Tuesday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Start nothing important before Aug. 8. August ends a lot of things: it ends (Aug. 7) the sweetness you’ve felt at home (but replaces it with very lucky cheerfulness and optimistic plans); it stops (by Aug. 23) a dangerous urge to invest or jump into someone’s bed without forethought; and it finally (Aug. 30) concludes an 18-month “period of loss” in real estate, home, parent-child relations and foundational ventures. This means September will be chock-full of opportunities (personal and business) – wait. Joy and rejection mingle Monday/Tuesday. You conquer Friday! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673

2013 model is company’s first vehicle with full range of new SkyActiv technologies

Mazda’s CUV makes a splash

Safety The airbag protection package comes with rollover sensors and double-acting auto power door locks are standard. The GS and GT trim levels come with both a rear-view parking camera and a blind-spot detection system. Performance While briskly travelling along a winding country road, I had to check over my shoulder occasionally to remind myself that we were piloting a utility vehicle and not a sporty car. The light, agile handling and solid chassis fun-to-drive qualities of the CX-5 come to the fore when the road gets twisty. While acceleration is certainly not a head-snapping experience, it does have enough grunt to get past something in a hurry when needed. Our test CX-5 came with the new SkyActiv six-speed automatic, which is smaller and lighter but functions like a conventional automatic and is slicker than most. There’s a manual mode feature on the shifter gate, but unfortunately there’s no auto “sport” mode. A MacPherson strut type suspension is up front and the CX-5 uses a multi-link arrangement in the rear, which leaves room for the all-wheel drive components. The all-wheel drive system sends all power to the front wheels during normal driving conditions. This provides for good fuel economy and as much as 50 per cent can quickly be redirected to the rear when needed. On an initial cold startup, the SkyActiv engine is noisy but the din disappears fairly quickly as the engine warms up. On the highway the overall cabin noise level is actually quite low and the engine is barely audible at cruising speeds. The Score The all-new Mazda CX-5 is a game-changer in the compact utility market. It offers fantastic fuel economy and exceptional road manners in a practical package.

davidchao Mazda is making a sweeping change in its product lineup, starting with the new CX-5. It’s the first Mazda to feature the full range of the new SkyActiv technologies that are redefining this automaker. The CX-5 is also the first Mazda with Kodo (“Soul of Motion”), a new design theme that will be adopted by the entire product line. While appealing to a broad range of buyers, the CX-5 is seen as a natural progression vehicle for current Mazda3 owners. It’s a step up to a roomier vehicle with all the connective features a young family is looking for these days. The CX-5 also offers sporty driving dynamics and great fuel economy for a start price of $22,995. SkyActiv is a complete re-evaluation of every part of the automobile with an overriding goal of better fuel efficiency. It pushes current technology to a new level without the added cost of electrification, which can always be added at a later date, and it starts with the new, lightweight body structure of the CX-5. The high percentage of hightensile steel used in the structure allows the CX-5 to weigh only 1,488 kg (3,280 lbs.) with an automatic transmission. It’s lighter than the Honda CR-V (a benchmark competitor) even though it has a longer wheelbase and is a little larger in overall length and width. At the core of SkyActiv is a new

The CX-5 offers sporty driving dynamics and great fuel economy for a price of $22,995. 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine. It features friction-reducing measures, a unique long-runner exhaust manifold design and a very high compression ratio (13:1), yet it still runs on regular fuel. The highway fuel economy rating is a class-leading 5.7 L/100 km (or 50 mpg). A six-speed manual transmission comes standard in the base GX trim version, while a six-speed automatic is an option on that trim and is standard with GS and GT trim levels. All-wheel-drive is standard with GT trim and an option with GS and GX, which gives buyers a good range of drivetrain/ trim choices. Design The so-called “happy face” front end is gone and a new Kodo design theme is taking over at Mazda. It gives the CX-5 a more prominent and bolder face with a five-point grille and a large Mazda emblem. Kodo is an interest-

ing mix of smooth flowing sheet metal and sharp-angled design elements that supposedly emulate the power and grace of a big cat, such as a cheetah. It certainly is an attractive take on the two-box utility vehicle and you might even see the inner-cat’s presence in places like headlights, tail lights and those ear-like side mirrors. In addition to a sleek styling exercise, the CX-5 is an aerodynamic design with a drag coefficient of just 0.33. The aero payoff is better fuel efficiency, especially at highway speeds, and quieter operation with less wind noise. Interior The CX-5 comes with standard push-button ignition. A chunky steering wheel and bucket-style front seats, which offer more lateral support than most in this class, add to the sporty appeal. The steering wheel also tilts and telescopes and allows for a nice

driver instruments/controls alignment setup that had me purring. Big doors make getting in and out easy and the CX-5 has plenty of room for five people. A three-way split flat-folding (40/20/40) rear seat comes in the GS and GT trim levels, which is different. So, too, are the remote release handles to fold down the rear seatbacks, which are located in the back cargo area and accessible from outside the vehicle. Unfortunately, the rear seatbacks don’t have a recline feature, as do some competitors. A large touchscreen display dominates the centre dash area and can be linked to an optional low-cost TomTom navigation system. The connectivity menu has just about everything and includes Bluetooth, iPod, USB and AUX hookups in the centre console storage bin. A nine-speaker Bose audio system is also available.

The latest in the good, bad and just plain weird news in the automotive world

Pumped-up bus, electric Fit, Shelby’s ashes top auto news items Brendan McAleer Contributing writer

orange cars on display, none of them in the spec-level or trim that you’re actually interested in. Then, a guy dressed like Herb Tarlek would wander over and try to browbeat you into buying a Pinto. These days, much has changed. Showrooms are now open and airy with plenty of glass-front. But it’s just not possible to keep every model in stock, especially the more popular ones. Audi’s come up with a solution. What better way to browse than with in a store filled with giant touchscreens that allow you to build your custom-optioned model, tilt and swirl the car around in perfectly-rendered 3D. Couldn’t this all be done at home on your PC? Well... yes actually, you could. However, Audi’s London-based digi-showroom also has product experts on hand to help out with questions. And none of them are allowed to wear technicolour sportscoats.

Lamborghini builds 1,000th Aventador Fifteen months in and Lamborghini is celebrating a significant milestone for its flagship V-12 supercar after the thousandth Aventador just rolled off the line. This particular prancing bull is Argos Orange and bound for Bavaria, where it will be parked beside a Diablo in an enthusiasts’ garage. Why is this important? Well, it took the Murcielago almost nine years to sell just over 4,000 cars, and here’s its replacement almost a quarter of the way there after a little over a year. Good news everyone! This whole financial crisis is clearly nonsense. And environmental troubles? Not a bit of it. If V-12, 691hp bright orange hypercars are flying off the shelves, everything must be back to normal. I’m buying stocks in Italian loafers. London bus does push-ups Think of jolly old England and you can’t help but cast your mind to thoughts of red phone boxes, double-decker buses and soldiers in silly pointy hats that cover their eyes. With the London Olympic opening ceremonies just around the corner, some of those stereotypes are being dusted off. And modified. How about this one? A 1957 doubledecker bus with two giant articulated arms. And it does pushups. Built to celebrate the athletic events soon to take place, it’s a fun (if a little weird) way to showcase cool Britannia. Honda delivers first electric Fit Of all the Honda models on sale today, I

It’s a lovely little people-moving pod and, with the smartest-folding seats in the business, can be reconfigured to haul pretty much anything. It’s efficient too, but not efficient enough for some. To suit those who’d rather have their rides sipping electrons instead of gasoline, Honda’s developed a Fit that’s battery-powered. Last week, they delivered the first one to its new owners in California. I say “owners”, really, the Fit EV is available only through a leasing program. For just under $400 per month, some California and Oregon residents will get their hands

on the electric Honda, which sacrifices a little of that rear seat magic to make space for the battery. While you may not be able to get one here yet, it’s interesting to note that Honda, like Toyota, is electrifying some of its vehicles rather than launching a standalone offering like the Nissan Leaf. Here, Honda is favouring a cautious, slow and steady approach over leading the charge. Oh. I just made a rather terrible pun there.

Carroll Shelby finally rests As if Carroll Shelby’s passing wasn’t sad enough, his remains have been involved in a bizarre tug of war amongst the members of his family. Not literally, obviously. Carroll wished to be cremated and his ashes divided amongst his children—or so they say. His surviving wife claims that she has a document given sole control over Carroll’s ashes to her. Then the lawyers got involved. Both sides are now near settlement with Shelby’s remains divided into five parts to be shared out among his family. Personally, I’d like to think Carroll would like to have had his ashes scattered across the Bonneville salt flats, strewn out behind a speeding 427 Cobra. mcaleer.nsnews@gmail.com
