REMEMBRANCE DAY

ormer Vancouver mayor Sam Sullivan will seek the nomination for the B.C. Liberals in the riding of Vancouver-False Creek. Sullivan, who was mayor from 2005 to 2008, will officially announce his intentions at noon Friday at the Westin Grand Hotel across from the Vancouver Public Library. Possible challenger Lorne Mayencourt, a former Vancouver-Burrard Liberal MLA, said he received an email earlier this week from Sullivan confirming his run. “I actually had an email conversation with Sam, so I know he’s going to be declaring tomorrow,” Mayencourt said Thursday. When reached at home Thursday, a very coy Sullivan would only tell the Courier the announcement is related to politics. “I’m looking at all that very carefully,” he said before all but announcing his run. “The key thing you should look at is what I’ve been doing. People have been making the case that everything you’re doing you could actually do more of at the provincial government.” Mary McNeil is the current Liberal MLA in the riding but announced she is not seeking re-election in next May’s provincial vote. Sullivan has been out of politics since he lost the NPA’s mayoral nomination race to Peter Ladner, who lost the election to Vision’s Gregor Robertson in 2008. At the time, Sullivan was a member of the NPA party, which he represented as a councillor since the late 1990s. Interestingly, Sullivan became the NPA’s mayoral candidate in 2005 after beating challenger Christy Clark, who is now the Liberal premier of the province. Since leaving politics, Sullivan has taught a course on sustainable cities to graduate students at the University of B.C. He also founded the Global Civic Policy Society, which was created for “research and reflection on civil society, local government and citizenship,” according to Global’s website. The organization has hosted several “public salons” in which Sullivan invites artists, deep thinkers, entrepreneurs and others to speak and discuss community building. An extension of his focus on community led Sullivan, who is proficient in several languages, to develop a smartphone app called “Greeting Fluency Aid,” which allows the user to learn greetings in 22 languages.

Keepcoinshandyincaseofdisasters FUTURE UNCERTAIN FOR ALREADY DWINDLING NUMBER OF PAY PHONES NAOIBH O’CONNOR Staff writer

I

n the wake of recent disasters and earthquakes, emergency preparedness agencies advise individuals to include coins for pay phones in basic emergency kits. But the number of pay phones on city streets has dropped substantially over the past decade. Telus spokesman Shawn Hall said there are about half as many pay phones now as there were 10 years ago. “We have probably 18,000 now in B.C. and Alberta,” he said. “You’ve seen a slow and steady decline over that time and that’s just Telus. There’s actually a half dozen pay phone operators here in B.C. and it’s no secret there are fewer people using pay phones than in the past.” Hall said some pay phones — Telus charges cost 50 cents for a local call — are still profitable, but many are marginal because of increased cellphone use and expenses such as maintenance. “But recognizing that they do fill an important function, we are always hesitant to remove the last phone in a neighbourhood,” he said. Vandals sometimes target pay phones. Each one costs about $5,000 to install, so if it’s repeatedly vandalized, justifying the cost of repairing or replacing it is difficult. “We do what we can if the phone is in an important area. We look at doing a lot of things like moving the phone to a different area that’s maybe better lit,” explained Hall. Business or community groups occasionally complain to Telus that a pay phone is being used for illicit purposes such as drug dealing or prostitution and ask that it be taken away. “We try to engage a community in a conversation because what we find is if we remove the phone, the problems still exist and simply move to the next available pay phone, so we haven’t solved anything,” Hall said.

Telus senior communications manager Shawn Hall says increased cellphone use and maintenance costs have contributed to the decline in pay phones. Telus occasionally “curfews” phones so they act as a regular phone during the day, but at night, between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., they can only be used for 911. Hall noted Telus also partnered with the provincial government to place suicide prevention phones at several Vancouver bridges. The number of phones in a bank of pay phones in a mall, meanwhile, has likely dropped from five or six to one, but they remain popular in transportation hubs, according to Hall.

When people arrive from another country or another city, they may not have a local cellphone and want to make a call on a pay phone for a ride, he said. “They’realsoimportantinlow-incomeneighbourhoods where many residents can’t afford a home phone or cellphone,” Hall added. Although the recent earthquake in northern B.C. and disasters elsewhere such as hurricane Sandy underlined the need for pay phones, their future remains uncertain. “I don’t have a crystal ball to see into the

future,” Hall said. “It’s common sense that the number of people using pay phones is declining due to the increase in cellphone use and therefore pay phones have become more of a niche product. We certainly have no intention at this time of pulling them all out. What’s going to happen 30, 40, 50 years from now I don’t know, but as it stands now, they’ll continue to play an important role in some communities.” noconnor@vancourier.com Twitter: @Naoibh

Mayencourt considering run for Liberal-held riding CONTINUED from page 1

Sam Sullivan, seen here in a media scrum after losing the NPA mayoral nomination in June 2008, is looking to enter provincial politics.

He’s taken his interest in language a step further and is working on reviving the original pidgin trade language of Chinook, which was once spoken from Alaska to California. Mayencourt, meanwhile, said he will decide in the next two weeks on whether he will battle Sullivan. He said Sullivan’s entry into the race won’t change his plans either way. “He’s got a great record, I’ve got a great record — we’ll see what happens,” said Mayencourt, who was the Liberal MLA for Vancouver-Burrard from 2001 to 2008 before running unsuccessfully for the federal Conservatives in Vancouver-Centre in 2008. Mayencourt is the director of outreach for the B.C. Liberal caucus and supported

Clark in her leadership run. A few years ago, he founded a treatment centre for drug addicts in Prince George. Other possible challengers in the race for the Liberals in Vancouver-False Creek include former federal Liberal candidate Mary Pynenburg and two young lawyers, Jacob Kojfmann and Brian Fixter. Constance Barnes, a park board commissioner, is seeking the nomination for the NDP in the same riding. Her former Vision Vancouver colleague George Chow is the NDP’s candidate in Vancouver-Langara. Last month, former council colleague and failed NPA mayoral candidate Suzanne Anton announced she is seeking the Liberal nomination in Vancouver-Quilchena, which will be left vacant by MLA Colin Hansen, who is retiring. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

Bike theft info among cops’ FOI releases 12TH & CAMBIE with Mike Howell

BIKE THEFT CENTRAL

Hey cyclists — missing a bike? I happen to know that at least a dozen were stolen over the past year near Quebec and Terminal, which is essentially the location of Science World. The thefts occurred between July 6, 2011 and Aug. 26, 2012. One of the bikes, a Specialized Enduro, retails for $6,000. Another, a Santa Cruz Blur, goes for $3,500. How do I know this? No, I didn’t rip them off. Nor do they belong to me. They were among the stolen bikes listed in a request for “bicycles stolen near Quebec and Terminal” under the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act to the Vancouver Police Department. Not sure who made the request or who the three other people were wanting information about VPD overtime and sick days, crime stats for 1055 West Georgia and street vending bylaws.

Every once in a while, the VPD will post results of Freedom of Information requests on its website. But the department won’t issue a press release or hold a press conference to let journos like me know. Instead, you have to search the website for the latest updates. Sometimes the info is interesting, other times it’s not exactly newsworthy. I’ve written about some of the other information posted on the VPD’s website in 2011, including cycling collisions and impaired charges. So far, the info posted in 2012, which has included facts and figures about contracts and conferences, left me yawning. The latest batch of info dumped on the site is not exactly breaking news but consider my following summary as saving you from searching and clicking. • There were 73 street vending bylaw tickets issued over the past three years. The majority were handed out in the 200-block of East Hastings, a notorious strip for new and used goods, including bicycles. • Crime stats for a two block radius around 1055 West Georgia, which is the address of the Royal Centre office tower. The majority of incidents were for theft under $5,000 (299 offences), something called “annoying circum-

stance” (271), theft from auto (163), commercial burglaries (54), fights (44), panhandling (41), robberies (34) and drugs (25). The time period was Oct. 1, 2011 to Oct.1, 2012. • VPD overtime. Officers worked $8.5 million worth of overtime in 2009, a total of $7.4 million in 2010 and $9.4 million in 2011. The 2009 and 2010 figures include expenses related to the 2010 Winter Games. Officers recorded 9,183 sick days in 2009, a total of 8,057 in 2010 and 7,592 in 2011. Check out the VPD’s website under Published Freedom of Information requests if you want to know more about what your local coppers are up to.

EVASIVE ACTION In other crime news… I’m going to hazard a guess those thieves stealing bicycles are the same dudes not paying to ride SkyTrain. I spoke to TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis earlier this week about fare evaders. “We know that we’re doing more checks on the system and actually the fare evasion rate is down from a year ago,” Jarvis said. Wonder if that will continue when a 10 per cent fare increase is imposed in January. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

Directions Youth Services team leader John Kehler needs donations.

Directionsputsyouthonrighttrack SANDRA THOMAS Staff writer

A

team leader with Directions Youth Services, temporarily located in the back of the now defunct Kettle of Fish restaurant on Pacific Street, says the program strives to connect with homeless and street-based youth. “We run under a harm reduction model,” said John Kehler. “Some of them come to us pretty messed up, but we always wait for them to say, ‘I want help.’ That’s when we’re there to make sure their housing and health needs are met.” Staff attempt to forge bonds with the young men and women, between the ages of 12 and 18, by helping meet their immediate needs through hot meals, showers and laundry facilities. To encourage youth to frequent the centre, services also include locker space and pet kennels, as well as educational, recreational and artistic programs. Kehler said allowing youth to shower and clean up before a job interview, a family meeting or for their own sake is vital to making those connections. Unfortunately, the centre is almost out of all of the vital toiletries, such as disposable razors, shampoo and bars of soap, needed to make connections happen. Directions, operated by Family Services of Greater Vancouver, is the beneficiary of the Courier’s annual Christmas drive organized by office manager June Stafford. For the past eight years, beginning in November, Stafford has placed ads in the Courier asking for donations, which are then picked up by Directions staff a couple of weeks before Christmas. Stafford said most Vancouverites have so much, particularly at Christmas, when these

kids have so little. “When we’re all enjoying our turkey at home with family, these kids are on the street, cold and hungry,” said Stafford. “It’s the least we can do.” Stafford said the most practical and popular donations are gift cards for almost anything, but particularly for fast-food restaurants and coffee shops such as Tim Hortons. Kehler said it’s all about building trust with youth, many of whom suffer with addiction and some who have been exploited sexually. Once that trust is built, Kehler said it’s easier to assist youth with taking the next steps with their lives, be it returning home or to their home community, finding secure, affordable housing, getting a job, achieving literacy and education goals or going to a doctor, nurse, addictions services or mental health counsellor. Kehler noted Directions is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is a long list of items the centre hopes to collect before the holidays, including gift cards, new underwear, runners and boots, warm jackets, gloves, hats, socks, new or used rain pants and jackets, and any teen-appropriate clothing. Needs for the youth shower program include soap, shampoo, conditioner, talcum powder and towels in any condition. Personal hygiene productsinmostdemandincludedeodorant,razors, shaving cream, tampons/pads, toothpaste, floss, toothbrushes and hair clippers — centre staff help cut the young people’s hair. Homeless youth are always in need of sleeping bags, backpacks, tarps, sheets, blankets and first aid items. For more information about Directions, visit fsgv.ca. Donations can be dropped off at the Courier office, 1574 West Sixth Ave., between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. before Dec. 14. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: @sthomas10

Shelter affecting park use CENTRAL PARK

with Sandra Thomas

PARK PROBLEMS The Courier received an email last week from a woman representing the strata council of a Yaletown residential tower concerned that a temporary winter homeless shelter at 1210 Seymour St. will hurt their use of Emery Barnes Park. The strata members have many concerns, but because this column is all park board all the time, I’m focusing on their issues with Emery Barnes Park. The temporary facility is one of the city’s HEAT shelters, funded by the province and considered low barrier, which means it’s open to all homeless individuals, regardless of addiction or mental health issues. Low barrier shelters also allow the homeless to store their shopping carts and belongings and bring pets. Low barrier shelters don’t allow drug use or drinking inside, so those clients must use outside. Sharon Promislow, who lives directly next door to the shelter, says the park board recently spent millions of dollars to create the neighbouring Emery Barnes Park, which she describes as the “heart of the neighbourhood.” Her concern is the shelter will encourage homeless people with “antisocial behavior to inhabit the area” and have an ill effect on the popular family park that’s just 33-metres away from their residential tower. “We fear we will not be able to take our kids there to play, afraid for them to romp in the grass for fear of needles,” Promislow wrote in an email to the Courier. “The shelter at 1210 Seymour will undo years of careful planning by the city, and patience for those of us who waited years to enjoy the fullness of the plan…” Vision Vancouver park board chair Sarah Blyth insists the shelter will actually reduce the number of homeless in the park. “The park board sees it as a good thing,” said Blyth. “Those same homeless people are already using the park, but with the shelter they’ll have someplace to go.” Blyth says the shelter is the first step in helping these individuals access housing and services. She adds in time the shelter should eventually reduce the number of homeless people in Emery Barnes Park.

Water fountains may be available year-round.

WATER FOUNTAIN ALERT Vision Vancouver park board commissioner Constance Barnes told me one of the toughest side effects of the Welfare Food Challenge she recently completed was dehydration. Barnes says living on $26 a week, the typical amount of money welfare recipients have to spend on food, left her not only hungry but constantly looking out for water. “I ride my bike everywhere and I’m used to drinking a lot of water,” said Barnes. “But with this challenge I couldn’t just go buy water, because you can’t do that with only $26 for a week, so I started using water fountains in the park.” Barnes says the experience gave her a new appreciation of the importance of access to clean water, which is why she’s so concerned that the park board annually shuts its water fountains off during the winter months. “It’s really important the homeless, seniors and families with kids at our parks have access to drinking water,” says Barnes. “So I’m working with [general manger] Malcolm Bromley to see what we can do.” Barnes says if all goes as planned, the water fountains in some city parks will remain on yearround. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: @sthomas10

Anyone who’s seen the photos of people making faces on the eastern exterior of John Oliver secondary’s auditorium and wondered what they’re about can visit the South Hill Community website to read about the memories behind the mugs. Students, artist mentors, school administrators and funders gathered in the Learning Commons, formerly the library, at the school near East 41st Avenue and Fraser Street on Wednesday to celebrate the completion of the JO Changing Faces Project. The Changing Faces photographic mural celebrates the history and diversity of the century-old school with images of current students and alumni crossing their eyes and sticking out their tongues. Photographer and artist Michelle Fleming worked with local high school students Raman Bajwa, Tynan Walters, Sooky Moore and Natalie Lingren to photograph more than 40 alumni and current students. The students then chose 20 photographs to enlarge to six-by-four

feet for the mural. Under the mentorship of documentary filmmaker Nettie Wild (FIX: The Story of an Addicted City), another group of students — Lily Le, Van Law, Callie Walters and Vrinda Munjal — interviewed the photo subjects about their high school memories. “Mary Quant makeup was very hip. At school, we were only allowed to wear dresses or skirts — no pants,” contributed alumnus Nancy Nagel, who’s pictured yanking her mouth into a diagonal slash. “The cafeteria used to be a lot bigger… We had 2,700 kids at the school then. They had a boy’s side and a girl’s side… The first time I got in trouble was for being on the boy’s side. Me and my friend had to go to the vice principal’s office and explain ourselves and apologize,” added Nagel, who left JO in 1967. The Changing Face Project did not just get youth collaborating with experienced artists. It also brought generations together, according to a press release about the project, “to exchange stories and experiences.” The South Hill BIA Public Art Committee curated Changing Faces in collaboration with the school and the JO 100 Year Anniversary Committee. It’s the third project under the South Hill Public Art Plan. The city funded the initiative through a community and neighbourhood arts development grant. crossi@vancourier.com Twitter: @Cheryl_Rossi

Impaired Conviction for Sitting in Parked Vehicle?

A recent ruling by the The laws in Canada against Supreme Court of Canada, impaired driving date back if it has not answered this almost to the beginning of straightforward question, the automobile age.

news Artdestigmatizesmentalillnesses ART AGAINST STIGMA PART OF CULTURE CRAWL MICKI COWAN Contributing writer

A

s with many other art shows, Art Against Stigma brings together a variety of art pieces from artists looking to gain exposure and sell their work. But unlike most shows, this one is also about fighting public misunderstanding of mental illness. The event is put on by the Kettle Friendship Society, a non-profit agency that provides support and services to those with mental illness, as part of the Vancouver Eastside Culture Crawl Nov. 17 to 19. The nearly 300 artists featured in the show share a passion for art, but also know what it’s like living with a mental illness while trying to establish a career. The show works with those artists to ensure they have a judgment-free space to sell their art, and does not charge a fee — costs being a huge barrier for those with mental illnesses, according to event organizer Jackie Novik. “Most of our clients are on disability pension,” said Novik. “The poverty issue is huge. It costs money to do art.” She explained that people are often diagnosed with mental illnesses in their early 20s, disrupting and sometimes halting post-secondary education. Novik hopes that the show

can at least help overcome financial barriers to starting a career. As such, all proceeds from art work sold at the show go to the artist, and framing is provided for most paintings. For one artist in the show, Leef Evans, breaking down those barriers has been crucial and hugely beneficial. “It’s like a job,” said Evans. “I work at least 40 hours a week. I go into the studio and paint. I can’t say I’ve ever felt better. It’s been the best therapy for my problems.” Evans started painting with dedication about eight years ago and says it helped him settle after being on the street. He sometimes paints in a figurative style, sometimes in an abstract style, but always with mixed media. “I use a lot of tape in my paintings. I toss sand in there as well,” he said. “Often paintings get painted over. Sometimes it ends up being like half an inch thick.” Evans said he’s successfully sold art work at each show he’s participated in over the last nine years Art Against Stigma has run, but he doesn’t let that dictate the artistic content. Novik explained that just as they’ve done each year, the artwork they’ll offer this year ranges from pieces from more seasoned artists such as Evans to those by beginners. Prices range from $2 to $500 per piece. mickicowan@gmail.com Twitter: @mickicowan

Oakridge plan part of car-reduction trend

P

erhaps you haven’t noticed, but stories about major construction projects along the Canada Line route have been appearing with increasing frequency. You are doubtless familiar with the kerfuffle caused by a towering project on what was once industrial land at Marine Drive and Cambie in South Vancouver. But that is relatively ancient history. Just this past Wednesday the Globe and Mail carried a piece about the Mandarin Residences, a Richmond development being marketed by Bob Rennie as an “urban village.” It’s targeted at new immigrant investors and parents intent on helping their kids. The Courier also reported on the proposed redevelopment of Oakridge Centre, a mall built in the ’50s and ringed, as was typical back then, by parking lots. What all these developments and many smaller ones have in common is that they are located adjacent to Canada Line stations. It is that fact Oakridge project architect Gregory Henriquez told Courier reporter Naoibh O’Connor that made it a “game changer.” And the game that has changed is not simply an increase in density, although that is certainly significant for all these projects. But as we have seen in the past, building new roads can cause density increases. And building transit lines can create density around each stop. This, however, is different. As one report on the new project notes, while there will be 2,800 townhouses and apartments along with commercial space, Henriquez’s proposal for Oakridge “focuses on reducing car use.” It will also create what is anticipated with the Mandarin Residences; it will create an urban village. And that means it will be, if you will pardon the pun, another driver in the cultural shift away from automobiles and over to modes of “active transportation” that is to say, walking and cycling as well as public transit. It will echo a reality we are already seeing in the city’s downtown peninsula where the relative numbers of trips by car have been declining for years. And it will reflect what was intended when the city — under then head of planning Brent Toderian — came up with the Cambie Corridor Plan. Some, doubtless, anticipated this change. The city was certainly on it from the moment the transit line was first discussed. Their initial concern was that, with the rise in property values around transit stations, the province would scoop up all those profits to pay for their investment in the transit project, or those profits would bleed out to developers. The city wanted the dough to benefit Vancouver taxpayers through improved services — daycares, parks, social housing — all to support those new communities. But it all started on a sour note. The line was originally called the RAV line, connecting as it does, Richmond, the airport and Vancouver. Unions opposed the project because it would cost bus drivers’ jobs and, they argued, it would never achieve the 100,000 daily trips by 2014. It actually hit that target by 2010, and during the Winter Olympics of that year it was even higher. What was more of an issue, however, was the mess and misery caused by the construction. Instead of a tunnel that most merchants were told would disrupt their businesses for a relatively brief time, the private contractor chose a cheaper “cut and cover” approach that interfered with businesses on Cambie to the point some folks were forced to move and others simply went out of business. In the end, the province gave the city some of the value gained by increased density. Toderian’s Cambie Corridor Plan was completed once the line was up and running and was recently awarded a national planning award of excellence from the Canadian Institute of Planning. And we are seeing the effects of this game-changer which, in the case of the Oakridge development, the public will be able to comment on at hearings planned for next week. agarr@vancourier.com

Headlines to hope for in the near future

O

TTAWA— In the days since he returned from his overseas tour, the prime minister’s behaviour has become increasingly erratic, according to Tory insiders. “First, he refused to ratify FIPA when he got home,” said a Conservative MP who wishes to remain anonymous. “He’s been going on and on about Canadian sovereignty and the importance of the environment.” Harper was rushed to a New Delhi hospital with a concussion after a cycling collision with a pedicab. Some colleagues are concerned there may have been damage to the frontal lobes, a common source of personality changes in victims of head trauma. Others insist it was unnatural for the Prime Minister to have been riding a bicycle in the first place, especially in a foreign country. They speculate his unstatesman-like behaviour may have been indicative of a mid-life crisis, impending psychotic break, or unapproved photo opportunity. “He’s a limo/SUV guy. Seeing him on a ten-speed is like seeing Margaret Atwood on a Jet Ski,” said a long-time Harper handler. “The holidays are approaching, and we’re worried about a “Scrooge moment,”” the official added. “Rehiring National Research Council scientists, renewing environmental protection departments, speaking freely to the press; that sort of thing. He’s already hugging his kids. We’re really scared.” The damaged bicycle has been acquired by the Ottawa-based Polaris Institute. The think-tank announced that if Harper continues on his present course of rapprochement with Canadians, they will “repurpose the crumpled cycle as a national monument.” Globe and Mail fires, rehires Margaret Wente as humour columnist TORONTO — Under fire for retaining editorial page writer Margaret Wente after allegations of plagiarism, Globe management fired the longtime scold on Monday and rehired her Tuesday as a “humour columnist.” Editor-in-Chief John Stackhouse insists his paper is not simply rebranding Wente as a reheated Dorothy Parker. “This is simply a signal to readers that no one should ever take Peggy’s material all that seriously,” Stackhouse wrote on his blog. “Readers can expect the same cutting (but not pasting) Cruella de Vil material as before, but now they might have a sharper eye for irony, unintended or otherwise.” Considering the new space is called Déja View, the cribbing commentator is rolling with the punches if not the punchlines. Twin scientific discoveries indicate cosmos isn’t random, meaningless, stupid affair BERN, SWITZERLAND — In the wake of the Higgs Boson discovery, physicists at the Large Hadron Collider today announced the isolation of a fantastically unlikely subatomic particle dubbed the “Whoton” (rhymes with “crouton”). “When we amplify the signal we can hear someone or something calling. It may be a cry for help,” said lead physicist Sheldon Nerdwitz. “We theorize this isolated Whoton is an entire world, occupied by intelligent beings.” Just days earlier, physicists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory revealed the existence of the 119th element, hopeium. Though highly unstable, scientists believe hopeium can open a portal into other dimensions, including the afterlife. But most importantly, its energetic properties promise flying cars and jetpacks. “Our long national nightmare is nearly over,” a beaming Barack Obama crowed to a crowd at a post-election stop in Pennsylvania. “No more foreign wars for oil. No more carbon emissions. By 2016, American families will have Flubber.” At a packed lecture hall at Cambridge University, professor Stephen Hawking explained what these twin discoveries mean. “This is the newest paradigm, not something from a suburban slacker who has modified his leafblower into a giant bong,” he insisted in his halting, computer-synthesized voice. The gnarled genius then quoted turn-of-the-century Canadian doctor and protohippie, Richard Bucke: “The cosmos is not dead matter but a living Presence. The soul of man is immortal and the universe is so ordered that without any peradventure all things work together for the good of each and all. The foundation principle of the world is what we call love and the happiness of every one in the long run is absolutely certain.” Hawking continued in his own words: “The human race must abandon its insane pursuit of nuclear brinksmanship and military adventurism. We now have a higher purpose, and that’s to preserve and protect the inhabitants of Whoton.” geoffolson.com

SUICIDE PREVENTION SEVERAL TRANSIT NEEDS CONCRETE LINES NEEDED WORK ACROSS THE REGION To the editor:

Re: “Letter of the week,” Oct. 19. On Nov. 5, VSB trustees Sophia Woo and Ken Denike asked the Vancouver Board of Education to take action on suicide. The 2008 Coroner’s report, “A Five Year Retrospective Review of Child and Youth Suicide in B.C.,” examined the suicide deaths of 81 young people. It concluded a coordinated approach to suicide prevention was necessary. It advised partnership between school boards and the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Children and Family Development and the Ministry of Health to: 1) Standardize best practice approaches in schools for suicide risk management; 2) Adopt curriculum to build resiliency, social connectedness and recognition by students of potential risks for self-harm; 3) Increase teacher’s knowledge/skills to feel confident identifying suicide risk. Thirty-six more B.C. youth 19 and under died by suicide in 2010. The recommendations have yet to be adopted by trustees. Bill C-300, a private members bill in support of a national framework for suicide prevention, has finally made it to the Senate. Given the overwhelming support from all parties, it will undoubtedly pass into law. However, even when the legislation is in place little can happen without concrete work to translate high level federal policy into local positive actions that make a difference. The motion put forward by Denike and Woo would take us in that direction now.

Dammy Damstrom Albach, President—Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention, Vancouver

To the editor:

Re: “Subway central to 2040 transportation plan,” Nov. 2. TransLink recently released the figures from the 2011 Metro Vancouver Regional trip diary survey: bike 1.8 per cent, walk 11 per cent, transit 14 per cent for a total of 26.8 per cent. This percentage has barely fluctuated since 1994. Expecting it to double when it is obvious the provincial government is neither interested in public transit nor knowledgeable about it means that Vancouver city council has totally lost touch with reality. There are many towns around the world where public transit is used by a sizable percentage of the population. But it only happened after enough rapid transit lines were built across the entire city to make it practical and attractive to a majority of the people. As it is, a subway to UBC will only help a small percentage of commuters. We need several lines serving Surrey, Langley, White Rock, the North Shore, and also a line serving the southwest of Vancouver. Where will the money come from? In most of Western Europe, the federal or national governments fund the original lines.

Jean-Louis Brussac, Coquitlam

DUNBAR SENIORS’ FACILITY PROPOSAL IMPRACTICAL To the editor:

Re: “Dunbar needs seniors facilities,” Letters, Oct. 31. Letter writer Erin Coulter attempts to throw a “social” molotov cocktail into Vancouver’s development debate. Under-

standing recent history in Vancouver, the elderly in a neighourhood like Dunbar are not “the wealthy.” They may be sitting’ on expensive real estate now, but these elderly are yesteryear’s hard-working people (teachers, librarians, plumbers, carpenters, etc.). Dunbar was once a very middle-class neighbourhood where these people raised their families here. Nobody will argue against the need for more seniors’ accommodations — throughout Vancouver. The subject proposal is for non-assisted living. The proposed accommodations are not only outrageously expensive but also against community planning policy and are out of line with current zoning bylaws. It is impractical as proposed. It would be a non-player for every senior citizen that I’ve talked to. Dunbar wants seniors accommodations, but as “the people” want it — not what this developer-driven council is forcing upon them. Is it wrong to question development that goes counter to civic bylaws, or, wrong to question a city council that denies and ignores almost every neighbourhood group in the city? From the Downtown Eastside Residents’ Association to Shaughnessy, associations are speaking out against council about how they are not listening to the people’ who elected them. Yes, the Downtown Eastside and Shaughnessy are now working together Erin — so get with the program! Erin’s comments about “heads in asses and being out of touch” could quite easily be portrayed by certain people’s lack of critical thought due to being ‘spoon-fed’ their facts (sic) by the twittersphere. May I suggest trying to get your facts from somewhere other than your iPhone.

progress in the negotiations between the developer and the Musqueam Indian Band around the purchase of the property,” the Sept. 28 release said. Ransford said Century Group and the Musqueam have not had any serious negotiations about the purchase and sale of the property. The two sides have not been able to settle on a fair price for the property, or agree to the owners’ request to be compensated for the preparation work, which included advertising and pre-sales. Messages left for band members Wade Grant, the band’s primary negotiator in the dispute, and Cecilia Point, an organizer of a protest at the site, were not returned before deadline. The discovery of the human remains earlier this year led the Musqueam to protest outside the property and call for a deal that would see the remains left untouched and the land turned into a memorial park. The ongoing dispute comes as Musqueam chief Ernest Campbell decided he will not seek another term as leader of the band. A five-way battle for his job is underway, with an election scheduled for Dec. 3. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

nan Clarke, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, in an email to the Courier. The holder of a heritage permit can recover any information at an archaeological site that could be lost if development occurs. An additional “alteration permit,” which expired Sept. 30, authorized the removal of archaeological material from the site. Bob Ransford, a spokesperson for the developer, said Century Group understands the Musqueam want to participate in a burial ceremony but protocols have to be finalized before moving ahead with such an event. “It needs to be spelled out exactly what that means,” said Ransford, when asked whether Century Group supported allowing Musqueam on the property for a ceremony. When the provincial government announced in September that it was imposing a Nov.1 deadline for restoration of the property, it pointed out previous extensions of permits for the site did not help resolve the dispute between the two sides. “The decision to allow the permits to expire after weeks of extensions is appropriate, given the lack of

with the Musqueam Indian Band have passed a provincial government-imposed deadline to return their site to its original condition prior to the discovery of ancestral remains. Gary and Fran Hackett, who are working with Century Group HQ Developments Ltd., were given a deadline of Nov. 1 to backfill their property in the 1300block of Southwest Marine Drive, which has sat idle for several months. The Hacketts had plans to construct a 108-unit condominium complex on the property, which is near the Arthur Laing Bridge. But during excavation of the site, archeologists discovered the intact human remains of two adults and two infants, which the Musqueam believe to be their ancestors. In a statement Wednesday, the provincial government said the “heritage investigation permit” has been extended until Dec. 15 to give the Hacketts and Century Group additional time to restore the site. “The province is working with the Musqueam and the developer to facilitate a date for a reburial ceremony involving the Musqueam, who require formal permission to access the developer’s private property,” said Bren-

est End residents want to know how the Robson bus would be re-routed if a public plaza on the 800-block of Robson Street is made permanent. The 800-block was closed to vehicle traffic during the 2010 Olympics, during the last two summers and will remain closed until the end of the year. Spencer Chandra Herbert, MLA for Vancouver-West End, has heard from residents who are excited about the idea of a permanent plaza in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery. But he’s mostly heard from Vancouverites who are “somewhat supportive… but have decided to be against it because the bus rerouting is so inconvenient.” Instead of trundling straight down Robson Street, the No. 5 bus now jogs over to Burrard Street. “I’ve heard with seniors in particular, but also people just with young kids or mobility issues, that for them they feel it’s kind of shut them out of that central downtown core,” Herbert said. He reported the West End Business Improvement Association has called for its members to speak in favour of short-term closures for festivals only. Residents can say what they’d like to see happen to Block 51, as the 800-block and the plaza on the north side of the art gallery is called, in an online survey until Nov. 12. Water is leaking into the underground spaces of the art gallery so the membrane beneath the north plaza needs to be fixed. The Block 51 survey acknowledges problems with the Robson bus reroute. “…Regardless of council’s decision on creating a permanent public space on 800-block Robson Street, TransLink is currently planning an improved re-routing to the #5 Robson bus,” it states. “TransLink will be conducting a service review of their entire downtown network.” Herbert said residents want to see the reroute before council votes on the closure. A report on the 800-block is slated to go to city council by the end of the year. crossi@vancourier.com

Remembrance Day marks

FACILITY PROVIDES SHELTER FOR MILITARY, FIRST-RESPONDERS I was able to spend more time with Alana,” says Dennis. “It also really helped to talk to other people staying at the house because I realized I wasn’t the only person going through something like this. There was always someone to talk to and we helped each other out.”

Master Seaman Bill Dennis stayed at Honour House while his wife Alana underwent cancer treatment at VGH.

SANDRA THOMAS

M Staff writer

aster Seaman Bill Dennis of Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt describes Honour House in New Westminster as a lifesaver in what turned out to be an almost eight-month storm of uncertainty, tears and fear for his wife Alana as she endured intensive treatment for leukemia at Vancouver General Hospital. When Honour House opened in June 2011, Dennis was the first guest at the facility, a homeaway-from home for Canadian Forces personnel, veterans, first-responders (ambulance paramedics, firefighters and police) and their families while receiving medical care and treatment in the Metro Vancouver area. Unfortunately, Alana lost her battle against the disease in June, two-weeks short of her 40th birthday, but Dennis says those gruelling eight months would have been that much worse had it not been for Honour House, its volunteers and the families he met there. This Remembrance Day marks the two-year anniversary of the opening ceremony held at Honour House, though the facility didn’t officially open to guests until June 2011. In the interim, the Honour House Society worked with the New Chelsea Society to house those who needed accommodation during medical treatments in Metro Vancouver. After returning from deployment in Hawaii in March, 2011, Dennis walked in the door of his private married quarters in Esquimalt to find his

wife unconscious and covered in blood on their couch. Alana’s doctors struggled to find the cause of her illness and for a short time she appeared to be getting healthier, but then a week before Dennis was set to be deployed to sea for seven months, his wife was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia considered deadly in adults. Alana was rushed to VGH where she was admitted to the bone marrow treatment ward. Prior to the completion of Honour House, Dennis spent the first month of his wife’s treatment staying with friends. When that situation became “too crowded,” Dennis moved out to the small military naval radio station in Aldergrove, located near Abbotsford. That meant leaving Aldergrove at 7 a.m. every day for the commute to VGH and returning between 9 and 10 p.m. each night. “I’d get back and it would take me a couple of hours to unwind,” says Dennis. “Then I’d sleep for a couple of hours and start all over again, but her treatment was so intense I wanted to be there to help keep Alana calm.” Dennis says when Honour House opened, his stress level diminished considerably. “Once I moved into Honour House and didn’t have to worry about where I was going to stay,

SITTING IN the dining room adjacent to the bright open kitchen at Honour House last week, Al De Genova, the driving force behind the project, talks about the roller coaster of a journey he’s been on since promising to have the home up and running by Remembrance Day 2010. It’s a promise De Genova made in 2008 after hearing about the plight of military members and their families requiring specialized medical treatment and rehabilitation services in Metro Vancouver, but with no place for them or their family members to stay. When De Genova first met with the Courier to discuss his ambitious project in 2008, he had no land, no building, no plans and little funding. But the Vancouver realtor and former park board commissioner was determined to keep that promise. As word spread about De Genova’s quest he was inundated with offers to help, but despite that outpouring of generosity finding an affordable building or piece of land in the City of Vancouver was out of the question. De Genova has just finished looking at yet another over-priced location in Vancouver when New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright called to say his staff had found the perfect home for Honour House. Wright was true to his word and in April 2010, the newly formed Honour House Society, with the help of B.C. Housing, took possession of the former Blue Spruce Cottage at 509 St. George St. in New Westminster. On April 16, a groundbreaking ceremony was held at the once-grand mansion. And while it was obvious there was work to be done to restore the heritage home, the potential for what it could one day become was just as apparent. Construction began in May 2010, and the official opening ceremony took place Nov. 10, 2010, the day before Remembrance Day and De Genova’s self-imposed deadline. Renovations were completely finished by September 2011. From that date to September 2012, Honour House provided 757 room nights, or 1,042 guest stays, at no cost to those who qualified. Of that number, 45 per cent were firefighter related, 30 per cent military, 21 per cent paramedic and four per cent police. Today, Honour House is beyond what De Genova ever dreamed it could be. The major renovations respect the 9,000-square-foot heritage home’s 1937 architecture, while updated features include an elevator, accessible washrooms, showers and some kitchen appliances, as well as 10 fully-accessible sleeping units. Alterations to the exterior included raising the third storey roof to provide additional accommodation. Meanwhile, the heritage trees and exterior stone wall were enhanced through a landscape plan compatible with the neighbourhood and a small playground and patio area were created off the newly constructed sun room.

Then he asked me “ how much it would

cost and I told him there was no cost. We moved them in that day — it’s that simple.

Honour House anniversary

AND THEIR FAMILIES WHILE RECEIVING MEDICAL TREATMENT IN VANCOUVER

Honour House founder Al De Genova outside the New Westminster home. 10 hours a day at the hospital. “I can come back here and rest before I go back to the hospital.” The woman and her husband looked for a place for her to stay in Vancouver closer to the hospital, but couldn’t afford the rents. Then another RCMP member told the family about Honour House. “They are filling such a need,” said the woman, who added she was able to bring her son to Honour House for a Halloween party the weekend before where they carved pumpkins together. “It’s been a long haul, but I know he’ll come home soon. But in the meanwhile Honour House has been a blessing.” photo Dan Toulgoet

Each bed at Honour House is covered with a quilt handmade by the Burquitlam Quilting Club. During a tour of Honour House Nov. 2, De Genova’s pride is obvious—not just for the structure, but also the way the project came together as a labour of love for the hundreds who volunteered time, labour and cash to make this dream a reality. De Genova mentions too many names, groups and associations to include here, but some of the key contributors are B.C. Housing, the Vancouver Regional Construction and B.C. construction associations, Portico interior design, Houle Electric, Walter Francl Architects, the New Westminster Rotary Club, Wesgroup financial, Scott Construction and the City of New Westminster. New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright told the Courier once the project was approved, his city’s council and staff went above and beyond to ensure permits were approved and inspections completed in a timely manner. “It was the fastest ever done,” says Wright. “It helped that the community bought into the project right from the beginning when they saw it was such a positive project.” De Genova says despite everyone’s best efforts, the project did run over budget so

he’s back on the fundraising trail. Though the project is off to a successful start and is so obviously needed, future funding is an ongoing concern, he says. But even that concern isn’t stopping De Genova from dreaming even bigger. “I want to see an Honour House in every province in Canada,” says De Genova. “There’s such a need.” STANDING IN the kitchen of Honour House on the morning of Nov. 2, a woman packs up the lunch she’ll take with her that day to Children’s Hospital. The woman is married to an RCMP officer from Kelowna. As she talks about her son she breaks down causing a chain reaction that soon has Honour House general manager Marg Gordon, De Genova and this reporter wiping our eyes. The woman asked not to be identified because her 11-year-old son is recovering from anorexia, an eating disorder often fatal in children. The woman has been staying at Honour House since September. “It’s great to have this spot for some respite,” says the woman, who spends up to

NEW WESTMINSTER Fire Chief Tim Armstrong believes in the objectives of Honour House so strongly, he sits on the society’s board of directors. “It’s a great, great project and we’ve already seen the difference it makes to people’s lives,” Armstrong said during a phone conversation. Armstrong cites a recent example of a fire chief from Vancouver Island and his wife who recently had a lengthy stay in Vancouver while their daughter received medical treatment. The couple was staying at a “run down” place on Vancouver’s East Side because that was all they could afford. When Armstrong heard about the family, he got a hold of the chief and asked him to meet him out at Honour House — without explaining why. “When he got there and I showed him around, he said, “How do you make arrangements to stay here?” says Armstrong. “So I told him that as long as there was room, they were welcome. Then he asked me how much it would cost and I told him there was no cost. We moved them in that day — it’s that simple.” The man was visibly emotional about the offer and admitted he’d been concerned about being wiped out financially.

“It was nice to relieve some of their burden,” says Armstrong, who notes the interior design of the home creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere. “You walk in and you can feel the stress melt away. You can only appreciate that when you’re faced with these situations, accommodation is the last thing you should have to worry about.” MEANWHILE, DENNIS says his wife Alana had the opportunity to visit Honour House while receiving treatment at VGH where she was a patient for months before she died. “Alana didn’t want to see any pictures of Honour House, she wanted to see it for herself,” says Dennis. Both Bill and Alana’s parents travelled from out of town so the families could spend last Christmas together and all stayed at Honour House. Alana’s parent’s donated a Christmas tree to Honour House, which was decorated and set up on the floor where they were all staying. “When I showed Alana the tree she was very emotional. She thought the house was beautiful,” says Dennis. “I can’t begin to imagine what I would have done if I didn’t have that support. Honour House became my home-away-from home at a really difficult time and because I was at ease there I could concentrate on Alana. If it wasn’t for Al De Genova and Honour House, this would have been so much worse.” While Honour House is always open to the public, a special open house event takes place Remembrance Day, Nov. 11 from 2 to 5 p.m. Honour House is located at 509 St. Georges St., New Westminster.

For many years the park played host to whippet racing, but the most exciting event had to be an emergency plane landing on the football field during the Second World War.

Memorial South Park was originally known as Wilson Park, but after the City of Vancouver amalgamated in 1929, it was designed as a memorial to soldiers who perished in the First World War.

eeling alone is no way to spend the coming months and few people choose to be socially isolated. For seniors, particularly those with mobility issues, the grey skies and wet streets of winter make many feel as though there is no alternative. Believe me,

there are lots of fun things going on in our community even during the colder, wetter months. So dig out those umbrellas and let’s go. Do you love bingo? Pack yourself a lunch and visit the Killarney Community Centre on Tuesdays from 1 to 3:30 p.m. or South Vancouver Neighbourhood House on

Fridays from noon to 2:30 for good fun and a chance to meet some great people. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to knit, a group meets at the Champlain Heights Community Centre every Thursday, both in the afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m. and in the evening from 7 to 9 p.m. Bring some yarn and

There is no charge although you should get a membership to the Community Centre for $3 a year. Didyouknowthereisamovie matinee program specifically for seniors at the Champlain Heights Community Centre? On Wednesday, Dec. 5 About a Boy will be shown. It’s the story of a cynical, immature and selfish young man who is taught how to behave by a little boy. The Centre is located at 3350 Maquinna Dr. and the No. 26 bus stops right in front. It is elevator and wheelchair accessible. I hope you’ll come by about 12:45 p.m. and enjoy some light refreshments. Show time is at 1:15 p.m. Although it may not be fun exactly, don’t forget to mark your calendar so that you won’t miss the annual flu clinic at Killarney Community Centre. on Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no charge for seniors. These are just a few of the events that are happening around you. Have you heard about the Seniors Hub project? Our community centres and the South Vancouver Neighbourhood House have pulled out all the stops to create a “hub” that will provide access and information to interesting outings, events and programs for seniors. And, best of all, there’s even a bus, provided

by Killarney Community Centre Association to help get you aroundtothespecialprograms on the menu. Go to theseniorshub.org where you can learn about weekly programs and special events. Ifyoudon’thaveacomputer, dropintoanyofourlocalCommunity Centres or the Neighbourhood House and look for a printed copy of the Seniors Hub newsletter or your Community Centre brochure. Scientific studies show that social isolation amongst older adults contributes to many serious health risks, including depression, heart disease, mobility issues and a loss of mental acumen. If you know of or have a parent, grandparent, neighbour or friend who might be feeling a little lonely, particularly at this time of the year, encourage them to be a part of the many events happening in their community today! Next time we’ll cover some of the more energetic and dynamic dance and exercise programs that are ongoing as well as Pickle Ball, all designed for active fun and geared to many fitness levels. Until then, get connected, stay active and enjoy every day. Sharing a laugh and a cup of tea makes even grey skies seem brighter!

rriving at the lovely, intimate dining room at Cavell Gardens seniors’ residence on a recent afternoon, we were struck by the impeccable grooming, spit and polish of the assembly of World War II veterans. These dashingly attired and coiffed invitees were made up of a cross-section of people whose stories reflect their intimate involvement in Canada’s war effort. A ‘dirty dozen’ veterans (actually 11 and a sister representing her brother) regaled the room with their memories of the most tragic, yet triumphant, time of their lives. With well over 1,000 years of life experience in the room, it was a historical gathering of epic proportions. Two of the gentlemen, at 98 years old, are still as sharp as tacks. It gives us perspective, that these admirable men not only served our country, but they are here together to chat about it. It was an honour to hear them introduce themselves with their brief biographies – some of which were rather humorous! Now, I don’t know my frigates from my fighter planes; or my battleships from my bombers, but I listened intently, learned

Navy, joining up in 1941. He served on the following ships: HMS Roxborough, HMS Queen of Kent and HMS Black Swan, for five years, in the radio shack, searching for enemy submarines. And if the war wasn’t going to get him, it would have been the three months spent in sick bay after contracting spinal meningitis. Back then it was your lucky number that saved you, and fortunately Alec came through with flying colours. One of his memoirs is a log book from World War I that he discovered hidden away! Joe Chong, a veritable youngster at 90, displayed his four medals on his uniform and certainly defied his years. From Chilliwack, his entré to

a lot and felt proud to be Canadian that afternoon.

the war effort was unusual – the military was seeking a native born bilingual who could speak Cantonese and English. After training in London, England, Joe’s formidable task as a member of Pacific Unit No. 280 was to head down the Suez Canal to India, and get ‘intel’ from behind the lines on the Japanese side’s plans. Had the war not ended, it was the intent to be dropped in by parachute, and retrieved via submarine at the end of his duty, James Bond style!

Heading up the table was Alec Young. At 91, he still beams with pride about his experience in the British Royal

You won’t meet a more animated storyteller than Woodrow (Woody) Coward. And the fact that any brave, hardworking Canadian ‘professional soldier’ has a surname like Coward is an oxymoron of the highest order. Images of

Woody in uniform from his own book – Connections – depict a self-described ‘peacenik’ who

joined up in 1939. For 30 years he went from Italy to Japan to eventually, many years later, Korea, in his peacekeeping role. A logistical expert, Woody thinks medals should be awarded to the wives and the mothers of World War II vets, for their work on the home front. We concur! All of our brave veterans in the room that day want to thank Veterans Affairs for the great care and support shown to themselves and their families, post-service. And we, humbled and in our awe of your selfless service, want to thank you right back. Special thanks to Michelle Cunnington of Cavell Gardens for organizing this ‘battalion’ of like-minded heroes in one room for the special occasion! Watch for more insight with Woody, Alec and others in the Courier’s December 5 edition of Seniors. continued on page 20

Veterans Affairs Canada takes care of its people

T

he Department of Veterans Affairs Act charges the Minister of Veterans Affairs with many responsibilities.

The Department meets its responsibilities through its various programs. These include programs for disability pensions, veterans’ allowances, pension advocacy, health care and commemoration. Visit the Veterans Affairs Canada Web site at veterans.gc.ca or call 1-866-522-2122. More of Cavell’s contingent (pictured right): 1. Bob Scholefield hails from Alberta. He joined the Air Force in 1940 for five-plus years. After 1,000 hours of flying (and top of the class honours), Bob made a near-death landing on a Halifax bomber, had his eyes tested and discovered he had poor depth perception! A desk job ensued, where Bob excelled, of course. 2. Art (Artie) Richards was born in 1914 in Toronto. His father was tragically taken in World War I. Not deterred, Artie became an engineer – an AVRO designer, in fact. But one step into a bomber and this young lad

knew he wanted to fly. So he became pilot of a Lancaster bomber (a troop carrier) – precious cargo, indeed! 3. Casimir (Cass) Lindsey fancied himself a blood-thirsty fighter pilot, but deafness in one ear kyboshed his plan. After a crash course in radio techniques in Leaside, he was selected for the Intelligence Corps. Well, that secret’s out now! Having no driver’s licence, he drove one of the big trucks into a ditch. No harm done. 4. Murray Belkin is 98 year’s young, and spent three and a half years near Halifax in the naval reserve, beginning in 1939. Murray fondly recalls wearing his duck-suit while they would be sweeping the area in search of submarines. Artie graciously mentioned to Murray that he could have just looked under the water! 5. Doug Cameron is a historian of sorts, being a contributor to a veteran’s newsletter entitled, The Voices. In 1941 as an RAF pilot, he recalls the 55,000 air crew who perished, but that Canada’s loss rate for bomber pilots was a low four per cent. A dapper fellow, his memories are still vivid, too!

Marking a period of remembrance honours the past, the present and the future

I

n this open letter to readers, recently appointed president of The Royal Canadian Legion, Gordon Moore, shares his insight:

Once again, Remembrance Day will soon be upon us. A time for Canadians of all ages to remember the more than one hundred thousand fellow citizens who fought, bled and died protecting our freedoms along with the countless others who have served our country.

But Remembrance Day should not only be reserved to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. It should also be a practical remembrance of the living – the disabled Veterans, RCMP members, widows, widowers, orphans and family members of those who served who are in need of a helping hand.

Members of the Royal Canadian Legion are, as one of their core responsibilities, the Guardians of Remembrance. The Poppy Campaign organized by the Legion, in conjunction with Remembrance Day, helps alleviate suffering and addresses the needs of Veterans and their families who may not have the financial wherewithal for basic necessities. The Legion assists with purchasing medical equipment, awarding bursaries for needy students, providing support services such as meals-on-wheels and drop-in centres and helping with some basic residential repairs to name but a few. So much of the Legion’s work in our communities goes unnoticed. Every day this organization of more than 330,000 people makes significant contributions, not only to enhance the lives of Veterans, but also for seniors, Cadets, Scouts, Guides, as well as serving members of the Canadian Forces and RCMP and their families. The Legion remains fiercely proud to be Canada’s largest Veterans services orga-

nization. Our advocacy work on behalf of all who have served in the Canadian Forces and RCMP ensures that they receive life-long support and recognition for their service to this country. Thanks to their desire to give back, the Legion was created and continues to this day to support our communities in countless ways. The Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Campaign provides everyone with the opportunity for practical remembrance and it is hoped that this year, with the recent conflicts in Afghanistan and Libya as with our aging Second World War and Korean Veterans, more Canadians will wear the Poppy than ever before.

Our Branch Members wish to thank all those who contribute to this year’s Poppy Drive, both by donation and by volunteering their time. We invite you to join us this Special Remembrance day both at South Memorial Park and later in our Canteen to Celebrate the Freedoms we enjoy because of our Veterans.

or many ChineseCanadians, Remembrance Day is about more than remembering the sacrifices that ChineseCanadians made during World War I, World War II, and the Korean War. It’s about paying tribute to the early Chinese pioneers, who struggled and made sacrifices for future generations of Chinese immigrants. Despite these pioneers not being granted citizenship in their adopted home of Canada, hundreds still volunteered to join up for military service in World War II, putting their own lives at risk for their adopted home.

“We owe what we have to what the veterans and early pioneers have done,” says Jun Ing, Vice President of the Chinese Benevolent

Association of Vancouver. “They did a lot for ChineseCanadians as a whole, so we could have the life we do now.” According to Ing, ChineseCanadians were finally granted Canadian citizenship after World War II, which allowed for many more people to immigrate to Canada from China and become Canadian citizens. The Chinese Benevolent Association, along with the Chinese Canadian Military Museum Society, the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver, and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. are organizing the annual Chinatown Remembrance Day service, which will take place at Chinatown Memorial Square, situated at the northeast corner of Columbia and Keefer streets. The service will begin at 12:30 p.m., and is scheduled to accommodate those who wanting to pay their respects at the Vancouver Remembrance Day ceremony at Victory Square earlier in the day.

is dedicated to ChineseCanadian military veterans. Organizers of the Chinatown service are expecting around 20 Chinese Canadian veterans from WW II and the Korean War to attend the ceremony, in addition to approximately 200 other people who crowd into the square for the service. The ceremony is especially meaningful to elder pioneer residents and their descendants, while also serving as a poignant reminder to the general public and recent immigrants of ChineseCanadians’ wartime sacrifices in past and current conflicts, and the dedication of the Chinese-Canadian community as pioneers, and as servicemen and women. “This event, and others, really promotes awareness of the Canadian armed

forces to the Chinese-Canadian community,” says Ing. He recommends dressing warmly for the event, and bringing an umbrella if it’s raining, since the event is not covered. Those interested in learning more about this chapter in history, the Chinese Canadian Military Museum, on the second floor of 555 Columbia St., displays a wide range of photographs, documents, and artifacts that tell the story of Chinese Canadian soldiers in both world wars, and in subsequent conflicts.

hen singer-songwriter Delaney Rose and her boyfriend Michael began searching for a West Coast home, they left no stone unturned. “We looked in Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Mission…” she says. Then they discovered their perfect, three bedroom townhouse in the final phase of homes now selling at Polygon’s Red Maple Park in Langley’s Willoughby neighbourhood. Surrounded by trademark Polygon landscaping outside, and furnished with clean modern cabinetry and stainless steel appliances on the inside, Delaney says her new house “isn’t just a place to live – it’s a real home.” Best of all? The 8,400 square foot resort-style clubhouse, complete with heated pool, whirlpool, great room with fireplace, fitness centre, mini-movie theatre, and two guest suites. “I’d call it Five Star accommodation,” says the former travel agent. Once she saw the facility, a planned house warming party became a surprise wedding - even for her groom to be. “I did everything but tell him and the guests until a few days before,” laughs Delaney. “He was thrilled, and so were our eighty guests!” “The Maples Club is a huge draw,” says Red Maple

Park Sales Manager Margot Bates of the two and three bedroom townhouse community. “We have first time buyers who are planning families, and those with one child and another on the way. The pool is perfect for them. For adults, the fitness centre and whirlpool lets you wind down from a busy day in a facility that feels like a resort!” Polygon’s Red Maple Park caters to individual lifestyles, with many homes offering a raised, fenced yard off the main level that is especially attractive to pet owners. Stores, restaurants and cafes are nearby to create a superior lifestyle. Elementary schools and day care facilities are only blocks away. For Phase IV, the newly renovated display homes showcase brand new finishes only available in the final phase, including two fresh new colour schemes, antique oak or high-gloss white flat-panel cabinetry, polished quartz countertops and sleek new wood laminate flooring for a modern look. Priced from $289,900, the final phase of two and three bedroom townhouses are now selling at 7938 209th Street, Langley, from 12 to 5 pm every day except Friday. Meanwhile, in their new Red Maple Park townhome, the newlyweds couldn’t be happier. “It was the perfect way for us to start our new life here,” says Delaney.

dents and their outlook for each of the markets in investment, development and home building. Calgary topped the survey, followed by Edmonton, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa. “Vancouver’s government red tape continues to make it more difficult to develop real estate every year,” the report noted. “Home building prospects also do not look as strong

year-over-year.” The investment prospect value for Vancouver fell enough to push the city down from second place in last year’s survey to fourth place in the 2012 report. Development prospects were even worse for Vancouver. Vancouver ranked No. 1 in Canada in that area in 2011, and is now in fifth place. “The results of this year’s

SPECIAL ADVERTISING FEATURE

Pre-holiday prep PLAN AHEAD FOR EASY, BREEZY CRAFT ACTIVITIES

Kids are quickly occupied, often for hours, if you supply them with the tools for arts and crafts. Take a look at some tried-and-true ideas beginning with the use of magic tape: HOLIDAY GARLAND: These colourful paper chains are fun for kids to make and they look great around the house. All you need is good quality construction paper, tape, scissors, holiday stickers, glitter, and markers. Follow these instructions: First, cut multiple strips of construction paper (2 cm wide by 11 cm long.) then decorate and tape the ends of one strip together to create a circle. Feed another strip through the circle and tape it closed to create interlocking circles. Continue making and taping interlocking strips until your garland is the desired length. MAKE GIFT-WRAPPING FUN: Let giftwrapping be a fun activity not a holiday

chore. If your child is learning a musical instrument, use sheet music to wrap the gifts. For kids with a sweet tooth, try wrapping presents with candy. All you need is plain red paper, large size bubble wrap, round peppermint candies, scissors and tape. GET YOUR CHILD’S MOTOR RUNNING: Turn any wall, floor or tabletop into the autobahn with a bit of coloured tape and a marker. Your kids will love racing their toys cars and trucks around this homemade race track… vroom..vroom… HOP TO IT: Use tape to create a hopscotch playing field and watch as your little ones test their balance, jumping ability and endurance. Your kids will have a great time while burning off the extra holiday cookie energy. Ideas courtesy newscanada.com.

2013 Bus Service Optimization Open House

Service optimization is the process of reallocating “bus service hours” from areas of low-productivity to where demand is higher. It’s a critical part of TransLink’s ongoing program of managing the transit network to become more efficient and effective. We invite you to attend the 2013 Bus Service Optimization Open House to learn more about the proposed changes and how you may be affected, ask questions and review alternative travel options available to you. For further information on route changes visit translink.ca/serviceop and for event details please contact Kate Grossman, TransLink Community Relations Coordinator, at Kate.grossman@translink.ca or 604.453.4660. translink.ca/serviceop

Liberal government scrapped six months before the 2010 Olympics (makes sense), the new agency aims to increase tourism revenue to $18 billion a year by 2016, up $4.7-billion from current numbers. How’s it going to do that? No doubt by targeting expanding tourism markets in Asia and coming up with a whack of catchy slogans, catchphrases and rebranding of some of the province’s hidden gems. K&K would like to help out. As avid explorers of this great province who’ve followed nature’s call on more roadsides, bathed in more restrooms and driven over more unfortunate families of raccoons in the middle of the night than a touring bluesrock cover band, we think we know a thing or two about small town B.C. Here’s a handful of new slogans for Destination B.C.: • Maple Ridge: Come for the rowdy nightclubs, stay for the illegitimate offspring you’ll sire. • Add a “c” to harm and you’ll be charmed by Vanderhoof. • Nanaimo… seriously…. it’s not that bad. • Hope… did we mention the first Rambo movie was filmed here? • Harrison… we’re more than just hot springs, there are also paved roads that lead to the hot springs. • It’s Duncan not Duncan’t. • The stink is gone…. Take a sniff of Powell River. • Hedley… for some reason a band named itself after us. • Keremeos…. you’ve tasted our peaches, now grasp our plums.

OVER THE TOP: The sold-out Inspiration Gala raised a momentous $3.5 million for pancreatic cancer research at the B.C. Cancer Agency. Guests gathered at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel for the jaw-dropping hospital hootenanny. A $1-million gift from the Milan and Maureen Ilich Foundation kicked things off. Later, a $1-million donation from the Ritchie family brought guests to their feet. Funds raised will catapult the new Pancreatic Cancer Research Initiative of the BC Cancer Agency, in collaboration with VGH, toward a synchronized approach of finding the driving causes of pancreatic cancer. YOU’RE HIRED!: After slicing and dicing under the direction of top chefs, 24 apprentices from Fairmont Hotels in the Pacific Northwest region’s culinary program strutted their stuff at the Hotel Vancouver. A crowd of 300 gathered for the delicious debut including executive chefs from each hotel, but it was hands-off in the kitchen, where for one night the rookies ruled. JOURNALISM JAMBOREE: Celebrating the best and brightest in journalism in B.C., newshounds gathered at the Hyatt Regency Hotel for the 26th edition of the Webster Awards. The Vancouver Sun, CBC and The Province led the way collecting the lion’s share of awards. Patricia Graham, VP digital at Pacific Newspaper Group, was honoured with the Bruce Hutchison Lifetime Achievement Award.

Bedecked and bedazzled at The Fairmont Hotel’s Apprentice Dinner were event co-founder Jill Killeen and master of ceremonies Coleen Christie.

Part of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s signature soiree since it’s inception, Mary Jane Devine chaired the 13th Rockin’ for Research Great Gatsby-themed gala.

Fairmont Vancouver Airport apprentice Arvin Roldan and controller Selvan Chetty welcomed 300 guests to the soldout chefs-to-be Apprentice Dinner at the Hotel Vancouver.

Committee member Stéphane Mouttet and first-time chair Myriam Glotman saw a record-breaking $3.5 million raised at their black-tie Inspiration Gala.

Rockin’ for Reseach auction committee member Valerie Myles, recently diagnosed with diabetes, helped raise $1 million for diabetes research.

Webster Awards keynote speaker, Toronto Star columnist and CBC At Issue panelist Chantal Hébert kibitzed with Telus content producer Prem Gill.

Honorary chair Fei Wong and her daughter Andrea were among the notables at the inspired evening of giving for pancreatic cancer research.

CBC Early Edition’s Lee Rosevere (left) and Shiral Tobin, along with Rick Cluff, picked up a Webster for Best Radio Feature for their coverage of airport security post 9/11.

einventing a legendary room is never easy, but when the Listel Hotel decided to close longrunning O’Doul’s, the move afforded no shortage of opportunities. In 10 days or so they’ll pull the wraps off Forage, a smaller and more casual space than its predecessor, but with a personality and mantra suited to the times. The area released by the smaller room, already leased, will soon emerge as an art gallery bathed in natural light. As the name promises, Forage will fit the seasonal/sustainable mold, bringing to the fore as many ingredients as realistically possible — locally sourced and menu in tune with the time of year. While “going green” has become little more than a convenient buzzword for some, it’s certainly not the case for the Listel. The hotel has been aggressively pursuing a raft of practical sustainable policies, such as a new heating system powered by a batch of rooftop solar heating panels, heat pumps and high-efficiency boilers. Forage is a groundbreaker in restaurant terms in that the new room (and kitchen equipment) has been shaped in partnership with Green Table Network, B.C. Hydro and LiveSmart B.C. The idea is to showcase a sustainable room by placing every conceivable aspect of the operation under the microscope to see how to make it as environmentally friendly and cost-efficient as possible. Even the plates at Forage have been chosen because they were

fired only once and hence require less energy to produce. If O’Doul’s was expansive, its successor is decidedly compact and intimate, with the focus of the room a large and wellstocked oval bar. Taps (eight of them) are entirely B.C. and decidedly craft brewdriven by the likes of Storm Black Plague, Crannog Red Branch and Driftwood Fat Tug — with a spare for revolving casks. The Evoke-designed space has more the feel of a small, contemporary gastropub than hotel dining room. And the more casual feel carries through to the carbon-friendly kitchen, still in the hands of chef Chris Whittaker. With backing from hotel GM Jim Mock-

ford, Whittaker saw what was needed to execute a truly sustainable menu. The chef, an accomplished outdoorsman and hunter, fully grasps the meaning of farm to table. “I’m not a trophy hunter,” he says. “I hunt to feed my family.” In short: he walks the talk. For example, his menu favours bison over beef, which he generally doesn’t accept as sustainable. Checking in at the bar, chances are you’ll be seduced by the list of snacks to enjoy with your pint or glass of Blasted Church Hatfield’s Fuse or Nichol Pinot Gris (one of four Okanagan drops on tap). A measure of the chef’s sense of fun but also his thoroughness is the bowl of corn popped in ducked fat and tangled with pork crackling — and the fat rendered from other dishes does double duty ($5). ‘Skillets’ include salmon bellies, end cuts from fillets, which would otherwise be wasted, with pickled sea asparagus ($10). Top of our tasting preview was an artfully assembled plate of seared Albacore tuna, with black berry and fir jelly (from a wide range of preserves made this season), small chanterelles and succulent brown butter gnocchi with squash purée. A symphony of fall flavours, it’s a good representation of what to expect from Forage, whose larger plates will come in at $20 or less. Forage is the next chapter in Vancouver’s love affair with local eating that found its beginnings with the 100 Mile Diet. And it might just be a (sustainable, of course) page burner. info@ hiredbelly.com

Penthouse forum

WRITER TALKS LIQUOR, LUST AND LAW

C

ourier contributor, amateur historian and member of Celtic rock road warriors the Town Pants, Aaron Chapman put his penny whistle on the shelf a while ago so he could spend more time at the Penthouse. Sadly it wasn’t as seedy as it sounds. Chapman was writing and researching his new book Liquor, Lust and the Law: The Story of Vancouver’s Legendary Penthouse Nightclub (Arsenal Pulp Press). It’s filled with photos, recently unearthed police documents and the kind of lurid tales you’d expect from an after-hours watering hole that was opened in 1947 by brothers Joe, Ross, Mickey and Jimmy Filippone, and has catered to jazz greats, movie stars, Rat Pack alumni, mobsters, undercover cops, exotic dancers and lonely high school teachers. Chapman talked to the Courier about the iconic nightclub, his late night writing rituals and run-ins with Marilyn Manson. 1. Why has The Penthouse endured? It’s amazing that it has. City hall, the police and even a fire almost threatened to shut it down forever. It’s a credit to Danny Filippone that he’s been deft enough in some of his business decisions to keep it going. Remarkably, he’s shown blueprints all the time to build a condo development there and he would stand to earn millions from the sale of a lot originally bought in 1941 for $1,400. But the building is hallowed ground to the Filippone family. And for Danny — it’s the family business that his father and uncles entrusted to him. 2. How many times have you visited The Penthouse for work or pleasure? I’ve actually spent far less time there than most people would expect. This isn’t a book written by a Penthouse regular by any stretch. LL&L is really a local history book that covers a lot of show business and entertainment history of Vancouver, and how the antiquated liquor

laws of the city were used by politicians and the police to try to shut down the Penthouse, but it’s also the history of an Italian immigrant family to Vancouver, and finally a crime history book of Vancouver with almost a little Law & Order episode thrown in the middle of it. 3. What’s a typical writing day like? I took some time off touring to write the book. As romantic as it sounds, I knew I couldn’t properly write it after gigs back in the hotel rooms on tour. My musician hours don’t make me much of a morning person, so a great deal of it was written in the middle of the night. I’d stay up and put on Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue, and that Mingus album with “Goodbye Porkpie Hat” on it and put those on repeat while I wrote. Considering the content, that put me in the mood to certainly write. I’d work until 5 a.m. some nights that way.

4. What’s the most memorable show you’ve seen at The Penthouse? The Town Pants performed there as part of the New Music West festival around 2001. Marilyn Manson came in while we were playing. He hung around, had a couple of drinks, watched us play for a while, and chatted with people. I heard he walked out without paying his bill! 5. In keeping with the title of your book, what’s your liquor of choice? A good gin and tonic will cure most of what ails the modern man. 6. What celebrity do you lust after? Maybe Ann Margaret in her heyday. These days... I don’t know if Monica Bellucci is ever looking to meet up with a mildly employed musician and Vancouver history writer anytime soon, but if she is, I will be ready. 7. Any brushes with the law? I’m probably doing a disservice to my public image or my punk rock past, but I’m free of any criminal record. But the day after I signed on to write [thebook]Iwasticketedforjaywalking.Ithought, I’ve only been involved with the Penthouse for a day and I’ve already run afoul of the law. 8. Have you always been a history buff? I’m born and raised in Vancouver, and I was in my early teens when Expo 86 happened. So I remember a lot of what Vancouver used to look like, and seeing the city change in a relatively short time span began to spark a flame in my interest in it. I noticed over the last decade I’d take off on tour in the summer and come back

to find the bookstore on the corner a pizza shop, the bar I used to play torn down for a condo development, the fleabag hotel down the street a trendy backpackers hostel now. I currently live on a street that didn’t even exist in 2006. 9. What does the future hold for The Penthouse? I don’t think any of Danny’s sons have expressed interest in running a nightclub, but I wouldn’t predict it closing anytime soon. Back in the ’60s the local newspapers were calling it the city’s oldest stationary funhouse. It’s beaten the odds in a tough market, and its dodged everything from the developers wrecking ball to local police and politicians who’ve tried to shut it down. When I walk by I like looking up at that neon sign glowing onto the street with condos that now seem to surround the building and stare down on it. That always makes me smile. I’m glad its still there. 10. If you were an exotic dancer, what would your stage name be? Oh, jeez. Male stripper names tend to be even more ridiculous than a lot of female dancers names from what I can tell. I don’t know. As a fan of local history and culture, I’d consider going with “The Endowment Lands.” —Michael Kissinger

SPORTS ADVICE Humping the U.K.’s camel trail in Cornwall KAY CAHILL

Contributing writer

I

just came back from a two-week visit with family in the U.K. I had expected a period of bike deprivation but to my delight, one of the highlights of my trip was a family bike ride along Cornwall’s Camel Trail. For anyone visiting the England, this is a great place to go riding. Located in the southwest corner of Great Britain, Cornwall juts into the Celtic Sea and is known for its spectacular landscape and scenery. Constructed on a disused railway line, the Camel Trail winds along the Camel Estuary and then inland along the Camel River, passing by abandoned stations (including the wonderfully named Grogley Halt), classic English tea gardens, and even one of Britain’s most well-known vineyards. The trail is smooth, wide and flat, making it suitable for riders of all abilities. The countryside is classic England: soft, rolling hills, stands of ancient oak trees, and gentle chattering streams. For me, it was also wonderful to share something that has become such a huge part of my life in Canada with my family back in the U.K. We also had the interesting experience of renting bikes for a large and disparate group of riders. This gave us the opportunity to learn and share these tips. First of all, ride your rental bike around the block a few times to identify any issues. I carefully picked a bike with a front shock to cushion a rotator cuff injury I’ve been nursing since my tumble a few weeks back but failed to notice that it had less than half a centimetre of travel until my shoulder started buzzing only a few kilometres in. My brother-in-law’s bike had a seat that was tilted way too far back and it started to make itself felt not too long after we set out. If you’re not used to tweaking things like shocks and seats, then get the rental store to dial it in. These adjustments can make a big difference to your comfort during a ride. Second, check your tools. The rental store equipped us with a pump, puncture repair kit and Allen keys for making on-the-fly adjustments. This should have been useful when we tried to fix the tilted sea, but the Allen key was stripped and no use at all. Fortunately a friendly bike store in Wadebridge helped out with tools that worked. Thirdly, pick a bike that looks as much as possible like the one you normally ride. This was where switching regularly between three very different bikes paid off for me; while I noticed that my rental bike didn’t fit me quite like any of my own, I had no significant discomfort once I adjusted the shock. My older sister, also a regular bike commuter, was on a very different bike than her normal one and felt the discomfort in her shoulders and neck at the end of the five-hour ride. And of course if you’re going to the U.K., be prepared to ride on the wrong side of the road. Even though I learned to ride and drive in England, after eight years in Canada it felt like quite an adjustment — especially the roundabouts! Kay Cahill is a cyclist and librarian who believes bikes are for life, not just for commuting. You can contact or send a comment to kay@sidecut.ca.

Demonshaunt Ghosts—twice MEGAN STEWART

Staff writer

T

he grudge match between the Kitsilano Blue Demons and Lord Byng Grey Ghosts isn’t over yet — far from it. On Tuesday afternoon at Memorial South Park, the Demons defeated the Ghosts 4-0 to hoist the Arnie Evanson trophy as the No. 1 Lower Mainland senior boys soccer team. Adozenteenagefansfrombothschools, somewavingflagsandcarryingpompoms, cheered from the sidelines with parents. Kitsilano head coach Randy Coutts remembered the long-standing rivalry. “Ten days earlier, Kitsilano opened their old rival’s wounds with a 2-0 overtime win to claim the city championships. Their deep bench will be an advantage at the B.C. tournament. “Kits wore us down,” said Byng’s coach Johnston. “They have more skill and they make us run a lot more.”

Go to vancourier.com for photo gallery On Tuesday playing for Lower Mainland No. 1, Byng dominated early but could not finalize an attack. It proved a problem they couldn’t solve. Despite a frenzied effort, they could not find the touches they needed and managed only five shots on net. The Demons scored in the 15th minute on a fast-breaking counter-attack after a failed Grey Ghost free kick. The Kits defence cleared the ball to Renato Curak, who held off two challengers to break free and score. “It really swung the momentum,” said Noah de Rappard, the tall Kitsilano forward who scored the winning overtime goal in the city final. “We got a lot of energy from it. We really just fed off it.” Less than two minutes after, he gave the Demons a 2-0 advantage when he headed home a cross off a corner kick.

“It came in from the right side of the box, I tried to attack it as hard as I could and get my head on it.” Byng came close to scoring minutes before half time, but two free kicks sailed over the crossbar. Hugh Grady was excellent in net for Byng, his athleticism transferring to soccer despite little formal training. Kitsilano scored two more, including a magnificent strike from 40 yards by Aidan Camfield. The shot sailed over Grady’s outstretched hand and dipped under the iron. James Soulsbury added a fourth goal for Kitsilano. Vancouver College defeated McMath of Richmond 3-2 in a shootout. The Point Grey Greyhounds handed Eric Hamber a 2-0 loss. The two winners met Thursday to determine the No. 3 Lower Mainland team. Results were not known before the Courier’s print deadline. mstewart@vancourier.com Twitter: @MHStewart

The two-time champion Vancouver Canadians can add another honour to their recent list of achievements. The city of Vancouver named Nov. 7, 2012 after the minor league baseball club and declared this past Wednesday “Vancouver Canadians Day.” Mayor Gregor Robertson wore a black C’s ball cap and presented the club’s owners Jake Kerr and Jeff Mooney with a framed certificate. Canadians president Andy Dunn and general manager Jason Takefman were also at city hall for the presentation. City officials held the ceremony in the mayor’s office. The public was not told about the proclamation and no press attended. The C’s were recognized for their contribution to the city, notably their winning record as well as their commitment to youth sports. Robertson said the C’s are “a vital part of the history and heritage of our city.” “Through its foundation, the Canadians have enabled hundreds of young children to experience the character that being a part of a baseball team provides,” he said. The Vancouver Canadians Baseball Foundation, through the Boys and Girls Club, hosted more than 300 kids at Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium this summer to play baseball. —Megan Stewart

Little Flower grows tradition and success MEGAN STEWART Staff Writer

T

he field hockey program at Little Flower Academy is one of the biggest in B.C. The teenage girls at the private Catholic school play on bantam and junior teams and, when they reach the senior grades, can try out for the competitive A team or play recreationally on the B team. “We started as one team in 1987 and 10 years later, we had four,” said Ali McGillivray, who founded the Little Flower field hockey program 25 years ago. The school graduates players to Canadian and American college teams — four alumnae dressed this season for the UBC T-birds — and Little Flower has competed in the AA B.C. championship finals four times in the past five years. They last won in 2007. The program draws elite players from the city’s hockey clubs but also introduces players to a sport they’ve never in their lives played. “People always say there are so many whistles,” McGillivray said, pleased that many parents learn new skills along with their daughters. This was the case for McGillivray, who first picked up a hockey stick in her early 20s for the Meralomas. Elite sport is important and rewarding, she said, but forcing children and teens to specialize and commit to just one can backfire. “We remember the

Ali McGillivray has spent a quarter of a century teaching field hockey at Vancouver’s Little Flower Academy. old-school way: when the season changed, your uniform changed. It’s nice that kids can pick up a new sport partway through school, just like I did at age 23.” McGillivray, who coaches the junior team at Little Flower, is married to John McGillivray, another influential coach in the Vancouver field hockey community who runs the Churchill senior team with Andrea May. Little Flower is hosting the AA senior girls field hockey provincials this week in Burna-

by. McGillivray was on the sidelines watching Little Flower play Wednesday afternoon when the Courier caught up with her. What makes the field hockey program so popular with Little Flower students? We’ve got great consistency with the people who have been coaching — enthusiastic coaches and kids. We don’t even have a full field. Our custodian, he manicures that lawn for us. It’s something that the school has embraced.

You’ve built a tradition at Little Flower. We had our first alumnae game [Sept. 21] and we had kids who are mothers now. People come up to me now and say, ‘Oh, my mom played.’ It’s really fun. Do examples of success inspire younger players? I think so. Kids just like to play sport, that’s the fun part. Sometimes when you come back from a game and they’ve lost, as a coach, you think, ‘What did you do wrong? Could you have changed the line-up? Should you have changed what you were doing? What should you have instructed?’ But they’re talking and enjoying just being with each other. That’s one of the reasons the kids play, for the fun of the sport. Kids want to be successful but they also want to be out there having fun and playing with their friends. You’ve work with hundreds of teenage girls, how does sport help influence a positive body image? As a coach, I think we’re emphasizing fitness but also the lifelong enjoyment of sport. It’s really nice in that usually with hockey it’s a big roster and everybody gets to play, everybody gets to have success and everybody gets out there. This interview has been condensed.

Aries March 21 - April 19: A link evolves. The accent remains on secrets, research, sexual urges, investments, debt and partnership money, hidden meanings and health diagnoses, especially Monday/Tuesday. Changes, commitments or break-offs you make will have magnified consequences down the road. This is the month on which your life pivots. That said, don’t start anything new before Nov. 26. Deal with old or ongoing sexual, financial and similar situations. (A former sexy one might return.) Relationships reach agreement Sunday. A mellow, loving mood flows in Wednesday/Thursday. Be ambitious late week. Taurus April 20-May 20: Remember, start nothing before Nov. 26: stick with former or ongoing people, projects. That includes relationships, contracts, negotiations, relocation, dealings with the public and advertising – and agent contacts. In the meantime, a former relationship, relocation opportunity, negotiation,etc.,might reappear (especially Monday/Tuesday). Trust your instincts on this – if this link was good “back then,” good again: if bad, bad again. Mysteries, opportunities and a sexy person fill midweek. Love of a gentle kind flows over you Friday/Saturday. Work, co-workers are pleasant. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new before Nov. 26 – especially in work, machinery, with dependents and health. DO NOT buy machinery. A former (incomplete) chore – or work role – might return (all month, but particularly Monday/ Tuesday). Perhaps a repair must be redone.A former co-worker or lover might return – the lover’s not beneficial. Sunday’s romantic: express your feelings. Relationships, opportunities and fresh horizons fill Wednesday/Thursday – but only leap if these are “old new” not brand new. Sexy urges and “financial significance” arrive Friday/Saturday – research, dig deep. Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on romance,

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your mind floats to rarified levels this week, especially Monday/Tuesday. Legal, educational, far travel, cultural, love and intellectual pursuits fascinate you now. Remember: start nothing new before Nov. 26. You might stumble across something you wrote or filmed long ago. My advice: don’t resurrect it, as you could muddle its message even more. However, a chance to revisit a foreign shore, to visit your old campus, or speak with an old flame, should be grabbed. Sunday’s mysterious. Be ambitious midweek.

The original Mustang GT was created as a tribute to former Ford head honcho Semon E. “Bunkie” Knudsen.

New Mustang GT drives ‘like a boss’ BRENDAN MCALEER Contributing writer

A

s something to paint on the side of a car, you’d need to be fairly confident to pick out the word “Boss.” Certainly, the current Mustang GT is no shrinking violet, what with a snorting V8 providing some pretty outstanding performance. And then there’s the Shelby editions of the ’Stang, with supercharged engines putting out Ferrari-ish horsepower levels. So what makes this bright-yellow pony-car so brash as to announce itself as the Boss, the King, el Jefe Grande? It’s not the top of the Mustang food chain, it’s not the king of the musclecar hill — and at under 50 grand for the base-model, it’s not even that expensive, relatively speaking. As with so many Mus-

tangs, the answer can be found in the heritage of the breed. The original ’69 and ’70 Boss 302 cars were sodubbed when designer Larry Shinoda referred to his project as “the Boss’s car,” either an evasive answer to keep the specialty ‘Stang under wraps, or as an homage to Ford’s new president Bunkie Knudsen (or both). Anyway, back when guys with names like “Bunkie” were running the show, the boss’s car wasn’t just lots of power. It was a no-nonsense, no-chrome, take-no-prisoners setup that mirrored the award-winning Trans-Am racecars of the day. In particular, two Boss Mustangs won the 1970 Trans-Am championships, making sure that hockeystick-stripe insignia became a legendary livery. See FORD on page 50

CONTINUED from page 49 Here now is the modern version of that car, and with such boots to fill, we gotta ask: who’s the Boss? Design As mentioned, the current Mustang GT isn’t shy — neither, for that matter, are the V6 models if you check off a few options boxes. Building on iconic long-nose, short-deck looks, the Boss adds its signature reflective hockey-stick stripe and fender badging, as well as a unique lower front splitter. Available in wild colours like Grabber Blue or in the case of my tester, School Bus Yellow, the Boss looks mean just sitting there. Part of the menace is due to the track-tuned suspension, which has a deliberate rake added in, lowering the front 11mm, but the back just 1mm. The machine has a pouncing look, as though it’s resting on its haunches, poised to leap. With a blacked-out grille and polished-lip black-painted 19” alloys completing the look, it’s little wonder that the

Boss draws eyeballs like it was leading a Powerpoint presentation on the subject of paying attention. Of course, some of that’s down to what happens when you fire the thing up. Environment An innovative touch-screen interface, panoramic sunroof and cushy leather seats are nice features to have. However, they’d be as out of place here as a foie gras flavour from Gatorade — you’ll be happy to note that you don’t get any of that nonsense in the Boss. What you do get? An alcantara-wrapped steering wheel that provides great grip, even if your palms are sweaty (and they will be). A brace of cloth-wrapped Recaro seats with snugly-fitting side-bolstering. A four-gauge instrument cluster that’s blissfully free of clutter. You also get all the usefulness of the regular Mustang, and that means a workable back seat that’ll fit the kids, and a reasonably-sized trunk; it’s not a family sedan, but it’s quite practical as a sports-car. The inside of the Boss is all-business, and in an age where

manufacturers seem to be locked in a competition to see who can distract drivers the most, it’s a breath of fresh air that clears the head. I suppose I should mention something about the stereo, but the truth is, I never turned it on once. Performance Squeeze yourself into the cockpit, adjusting the seat forward. Two clicks on the ignition to power everything up — drop both of the windows. Press in the clutch and make sure she’s in neutral. Ignition The Boss has a unique quad exhaust set-up: there’s the usual twin-pipes out back, but also a set of smaller exhausts that exit just in front of the rear wheels. To say that the sound they produce is impressive is like saying that Pavarotti bloke can carry a tune pretty OK. It’s the sort of brief bark and burble that takes you back in time, every time. If you have a single allele of gearhead in your DNA, this machine prods it roughly with a big oily finger. Instantly, I’m 10-years-old again. Everything’s heavy and mechanical, but not ponderously so. Slot the pool-ball shifter into first and the Boss growls its way up through the revs. Of everything I’ve driven this year, this machine is the most fun to drive slowly: it coughs and grumbles, and when you ease it down from third to second when pulling up at a stop-sign, it mutters a soft throaty burble that’s like the growl of a big jungle cat. The Boss 302 pulls off what many much-more expensive cars try to achieve and fail. It’s an event, a gala performance — it’s the sort of thing you might have imagined driving was going to be like when you were smashing Hot Wheels together in your parents’ basement. And then there’s what happens when you actually put your foot into it a little. Good grief! With shorter gearing taking advantage of the slightly beefed-up 444hp high-output V8, I hardly need mention that the Boss accelerates like a Saturn IV moon-rocket. With much the same soundtrack. Stiffer springs, uprated bushings and a bigger rear stabilizer bar all make the Boss much nimbler-feeling than the standard Mustang. Track-day enthusiasts will also appreciate the adjustable-damping shock absorbers. Now, at this point, somebody’s bound to start complaining about how much better a proper independent rear suspension would be over the old-school live-axle that’s part of the current Mustang’s underpinnings. Should they do so, feel free to smack them upside the head with a non-stick frying pan; not only does the Boss shunt through the corners with aplomb, it does so in a manner that makes you feel like ‘70s-racer Parnelli Jones blasting past the competition to take the win. brendanmcaleer@gmail.com
