23 26 VSB takes cautious approach to year-round schooling Macbeth’s toil and trouble Lions kick off Friday

Management eyed University Hill Naoibh O’Connor Staff writer

A “balanced” calendar involves lengthening the school year and reducing the summer break. photo Dan Toulgoet

A Vancouver school district committee rejected part of a management recommendation that pinpointed a particular group of schools for a feasibility study on a balanced calendar, better known as year-round school. Year-round school involves lengthening the school year, shortening the summer break and adding longer breaks between sessions. Management proposed the feasibility study be done on the University Hill family of schools—a group that includes University Hill elementary school, a second elementary school that’s yet to be built on Acadia Road, and University Hill secondary school, which will soon

move into the renovated National Research Council building at 4250 Wesbrook Mall. The year-round schooling recommendation was one of 30 senior management team recommendations stemming from the district’s sectoral review of schools and services, which were presented at the VSB’s management coordinating meeting Monday. But committee members concluded they want the district to be cautious, they don’t want anything imposed, they want to know more about the impact of a balanced calendar on vulnerable students, and they don’t want to put pressure on a particular family of schools, according to deputy superintendent Jordan Tinney. See DISTRICT on page 4

City hall task force targets housing ‘affordability crisis’ Recommendations include community land trust Mike Howell Staff writer The city may create a housing authority, expand zoning to allow more forms of housing such as row houses and upgrade decaying rental housing stock to create socalled affordable homes for middle to moderate income earners.

Mayor Gregor Robertson announced those recommendations Monday and others, including the creation of a community land trust to acquire and hold land for cheaper housing, as part of his task force on housing affordability. “There is no quick fix for affordable housing in Vancouver,” the mayor told reporters at city hall. “This is many

decades of decline and challenging circumstances mounting and we’re not going to fix it overnight here.” But, the mayor said, the focus of the task force, which he co-chaired with former provincial Liberal cabinet minister Olga Ilich, is to zero in on what city hall can do to put a dent in what he called “an affordability crisis.” The recommenda-

tions, which will be open to public feedback before going before council in September, are aimed at finding housing for people earning between $21,500 and a combined $86,500 per year. The report notes two sobering facts: • Vancouver has the highest housing prices in Canada and the

vast majority of households in the city have incomes well below those required to purchase even a modest condo. • Nearly 50 per cent of households in Vancouver headed by people under 34 years old spend more than 30 per cent of their income on housing. See TASK on page 4

Task force prescribes more row houses and laneway homes

Continued from page 1 For the city to have any impact on the city’s market-driven real estate, the task force recommends broadening forms of housing to allow for more townhouses, row houses and laneway homes to achieve greater density. By extension, new forms of housing would increase the diversity and affordability of housing. Building that housing near transit is also key, according to the report, noting the benefits of lower transportation costs, proximity to jobs and easy access to child care, schools and parks. The current state of housing in Vancouver exists largely in two forms—single-family homes on single lots and apartment buildings. “There is little in the continuum of housing beyond these two

forms to meet the needs of families and smaller households,” said the report, which was developed by a range of people including developers, non-profit housing providers, a First Nations leader and city councillors Raymond Louie and Geoff Meggs. Other recommendations include investigating building affordable housing in partnerships with nonprofits, foundations, unions, religious organizations and philanthropists. “Such partnerships acts as ethical investment vehicles, committed to providing financing at less than market returns for non-profits undertaking affordable housing projects,” the report said. The task force identified a need for a city-owned housing authority that would be tasked with

developing social and affordable housing. Similar authorities already exist at Metro Vancouver, in Edmonton, Winnipeg and Toronto. As for rental housing, the city is currently reviewing four community plans—in Marpole, the West End, Grandview-Woodlands and the Downtown Eastside—where a vast amount of market rental housing is decaying. David McLellan, the deputy city manager who oversaw the work of the task force, said deciding how best to re-invest in that housing stock will or is included in the reviews. Neither the mayor nor McLellan provided any costs of implementing the recommendations. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

Mayor Gregor Robertson (centre), Olga Ilich and David McLellan photo Dan Toulgoet met with reporters Monday at city hall.

Trustee has ‘not heard an outpouring of interest’ from University Hill

Continued from page 1 The committee asked that the recommendation be modified to call for a more general report on the feasibility of establishing a balanced calendar in the district for any and all schools, as well as a report on the processes the board would need to follow should it wish to establish a balanced calendar. “Overall, the board is curious, wants to know more,

but wants to be very cautious in moving this forward,” Tinney told the Courier. “Trustees really want to know that if there is a movement in this direction that it comes from the grassroots and not from an imposition by the board.” Committee chair Mike Lombardi agreed, explaining they don’t want to target a school or schools unless the board hears a significant desire for year-round

school from that community. “We’ve not heard an outpouring of interest from [University Hill], so our view is, the trustees’ view is, we are interested in pursuing that idea where there’s an interested school community,” he said. “If a school community shows that interest, then we’ll engage in a significant process to see whether or not they want to go there.

But we haven’t had that indication. Basically, we said wherever that comes from in the district, we’re open to it but we’re not going to go launch something.” Board chair Patti Bacchus said the board supports the concept of year-round school as long as parents, students and employee groups back the idea. “The key is a major shift like this should really come

from the school community, not from the school board… [it’s] not wanting to toss out something that could potentially be divisive in a community coming from the school board,” she said. So what will happen if a school or group of schools doesn’t step forward and embrace the concept of yearround school? “Then we have to respect that,” Bacchus said. “It’s a

big change at a time when there’s a lot of instability, a lot of uncertainty in the system. For the school board to be putting pressure for change right now—I don’t think it’s the right time and I’m not convinced that we have the kind of research we need to support that it’s actually the right choice for any particular school.” noconnor@vancourier.com Twitter: @Naoibh

with Mike Howell

Head case

Ever seen Mayor Gregor Robertson on a bike without a helmet? Can’t say I have. But, apparently, you would have seen His Worship sans casque when he was in Paris recently. Oh, mon dieu! That’s because that city’s public bike share program—that would be the program where you rent a bike and take it for a spin—doesn’t believe in helmets. I’m thinking it has something to do with a bylaw imposed by the City of Lights Coiffeurs’ Union. Besides that, I just can’t imagine seeing Gerard Depardieu in a brain bucket while tooling along with a baguette in hand. The mayor disclosed his helmetless escapade after being quizzed by reporters Monday on how the city plans to implement a public bike share program that abides by the provincial government’s mandatory bike helmet law. “Personally, I’m a supporter of wearing a helmet,” he said from city hall, where his hair looked just fine despite donning his safety chapeau earlier in the morn-

ing. “I’ve had a couple of friends whose lives were saved by helmets when they were riding.” Two weeks ago, the city heard a presentation from the city’s director of transportation, Jerry Dobrovolny—another cyclist—in which he concluded no public bike share program in the world has cracked the helmet problem. Mexico City created a helmet law exemption for adults after its bike rental program’s first year of operations. Tel Aviv recently exempted adults in urban areas. In Brisbane, the city bought 400 helmets that remain on the bikes and are not cleaned. So it’s up to Alta Bike Share of Portland, which is working with Bixi of Quebec, to find an arrangement that will satisfy Robertson and his council before the program is launched in 2013. “I’d like to see Vancouver succeed at a public bike system that includes helmets and the opportunity to export that technology to other cities where people would actually use helmets, if they were available,” the mayor said. The mayor’s comments come as cycling-crazy delegates from around the world pedal in to Vancouver for the Velo-city Global 2012 bike conference, which runs until Friday.

Mountain view

In other city hall news that requires more of a thinking cap—

and a calculator—city staff finally have an update on the proposed Little Mountain development. I say finally because it was way back in July 2007 when B.C. Housing and the city signed an agreement to redevelop the 1954era housing project east of Queen Elizabeth Park. That agreement included ensuring the 224 social housing units would be replaced in the new project and those tenants would get first dibs on moving back in. An additional 10 units have since been added to the plan. The report gives guidance to council for a future anticipated rezoning application from Holborn Properties. So it’s still unclear exactly how many or how high the other buildings will be on the site, which covers more than 15 acres. But—and here’s where you need a calculator—the staff report says there could be 1,250 to 1,400 market housing units in the new development. That will depend on what council decides in terms of density. If it’s 1,250 market units, that would mean $14.6 million in development cost levies to the city plus another $9.5 million in community amenity contributions. If it’s 1,400 market units, the total would be closer to $33 million for the city. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

Cashing in

Last week, Carleton elementary school essentially won a lottery when education minister George Abbott announced it was one of 80 schools in B.C. to land a playground grant in the final round of playground funding from the provincial government. The grant, worth $50,000 to Carleton, caught the school community by surprise. Principal Tim Krug told me Parent Advisory Council chairwoman Ella Ngo had talked with members of the District Parent Advisory Council about getting playground funding, and Carleton’s previous principal, Pat Munton, had been an “incredible advocate” when the school wasn’t included on a previous list of schools being awarded grants. But Carleton hadn’t

been notified cash would be forthcoming. “Our accessing this funding at this time is incredibly fortunate as I had just reported out at our last PAC meeting that one of our playgrounds is now scheduled for removal by the summer of 2016,” Krug told the Courier. “This playground is extremely popular with our younger students and this funding will definitely help in its replacement.” Carleton elementary, located at 3250 Kingsway, has about 330 students in kindergarten to Grade 7. Parent groups are charged with raising money to replace playground equipment, which requires an enormous effort over several years to collect enough to cover costs that can range from $20,000 to more than $100,000. Carleton PAC meetings, however, usually only draw four or five parents, of which three are actively involved in fundraising, according to Krug. Ngo, a mother of four with another child on the way, spearheads fundraising drives and recruits students to help. She’s organized movie nights, a garage sale, a carnival and a sports day

Carleton elementary received a $50,000 playground grant. photo Dan Toulgoet concession, among other events to collect much-needed money for the school. “We have moved our PAC meeting times from evenings to during school hours but have yet to be able to increase our parental numbers,” Krug said. The school’s goal next year is to attract more parents, but both Krug and Ngo are aware many Carleton parents work shift work or work varying hours, so attending parent meetings or taking part in fundraising efforts is difficult. There are also language barriers—many parents don’t speak English, Ngo said. “I try to translate as much as I can for

some of the parents who do show up,” she said. The parent group has been saving a portion of the school’s annual casino funds allocation for several years to use to help buy playground equipment— there’s about $14,000 in an account, but now that Carleton has been awarded the provincial playground grant, Ngo hopes that money can be used to spend on technology for the school. The grant announcement, meanwhile, was welcome news. “I’m happy but I’ll be happier when we actually see the money in out account,” she said. noconnor@vancourier.com Twitter: @Naoibh

As I mentioned in an online story last Friday, the fire that torched the train station at the Stanley Park Miniature Railway Thursday night also destroyed artwork, tools and products stored there by artists taking part in the Klahowya Village display. But it wasn’t until the cleanup was complete that the full extent of the damage was apparent. A conservative estimate shows the ruined artists’ items totalled more than $40,000 in value. Coincidently, the 911 call about the fire was called in at midnight just hours after the June 21 opening of the Klahowya Village exhibit in Stanley Park. According to the Aboriginal Tourism Association of B.C., which sponsors the exhibit, the loss of tools and art is not only financially devastating to the artists but also a creative blow. The association has set up a donation fund to support the First Nations artists who sustained losses not covered by insurance. For more information, go to aboriginalbc.com. Park board media spokesperson Joyce Courtney

could be sold to a developer for condos for about $675 million. That’s a lot of green. While Jasper insisted the city’s golf courses will never be sold for condos so long as he’s on the board, he admitted he’s talked to staff about making more money from Langara, Fraserview and McCleery. “It’s interesting timing because I have asked staff for an analysis, including supply and demand of all three courses,” Jasper told me. Jasper wants to find out if there are ways to make the city’s public golf courses financially more viable and also open them up to other uses, such as park space. “We need more bang for our buck,” Jasper said. “But we’ve never contemplated selling off any land.” Jasper says one idea being floated is an executive nine-hole golf experience, which would free up green space by moving away from the lengthy, 18-hole games being played today. “But you can put in bold print that we are not selling off our golf courses for condos,” he said. Jasper brought a motion forward last year recommending liquor be sold on golf courses and not just in the clubhouse. The recommendation was approved by the board and is pending provincial approval. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: sthomas10

WEB POLL NATION Go to www.vancourier.com to vote Do you support an individual’s right to physician-assisted death? Last week’s poll question: Do you think a public bike rental program in a city like Vancouver is feasible?

Yes 57 per cent No 43 per cent This is not a scientific poll.

As the B.C. Liberal government keeps emphasizing its “Families First Agenda” it is undermining its own efforts on that front with the ongoing train wreck over at Community Living B.C. The latest “pillar” of the families agenda offers modest support for students in post-secondary institutions when it comes to paying off their student loans. For students facing massive debt loads the changes will provide some relief, but don’t come anywhere near making a huge impact on a serious problem. Naturally, many people will contrast that effort to help young people with the troubles of a government agency that is also supposed to help developmentally challenged young adults. The CLBC fiasco simply won’t go away. The incentive bonuses for CLBC executives were supposed to be gone, but it turns out they aren’t. Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux announced last October the bonus program was being terminated. Ending the program followed weeks of controversy and upheaval at CLBC, which included replacing its CEO and even the former cabinet minister responsible for the agency. So for months it had been assumed the bonus program was truly dead. It now turns out it isn’t. The bonuses have simply been rolled over into the base salaries for the executives. On top of that, even though the bonus program was supposedly killed back in October, the ministry has now admitted it continued until the end of the last fiscal year (March 31). This means those infamous bonuses will actually be paid out in July—nine months after Cadieux said the program was ended. Now, we’re not talking about a lot of money here (about $300,000) but the issue here is about

keithbaldrey credibility and being upfront about what’s really going on. For a government that seems to be held in contempt by a lot of people, this misleading situation does further damage to its attempts to establish its credibility on so many issues. It’s unclear how this mess has been allowed to fester. Is CLBC some kind of rogue agency rebuffing efforts by the central government to rein it in, or is this another example of a government in disarray? I suspect it’s the latter of those two scenarios. The two people who look worst in this sorry controversy are Cadieux and Premier Christy Clark herself. Clark, for her part, has dismissed criticism over the bonus sleight of hand as mere “semantics” and has blasted reporters for getting things wrong. It’s interesting to note that no one in government —including the premier—sought to correct any of the media stories last October that reported the bonus program was over and done with right there. It wasn’t until the bonus program resurfaced in the news that this became an issue of se-

mantics for the government. Its unlikely Cadieux will lose her cabinet post over this, although her credibility has been damaged and some critics will no doubt call for her resignation. The core issue here is the not unreasonable expectation that a government speaks the truth when asked, and doesn’t make misleading statements that come back to haunt it. That’s a big reason why Clark’s cherished Families First Agenda is having so much trouble gaining traction with the voters. Holding B.C. Hydro rates down, establishing a new family holiday, making changes to student loans and creating various new tax credits may all sound very nice to many people, but they have minimal political payoff if people are turned off by a government they don’t see as being truthful about things. The provincial government is looking for someone to consult with various communities about changes to B.C. Ferry operations. Whoever gets the job better get some earplugs. I suspect people who live in small coastal communities will be apoplectic when it suddenly dawns on them that the changes that are coming will include a fair number of sailing reductions, particularly on small routes where on occasion a ferry will sail without a single passenger. There’s going to be a lot of screaming and hollering coming from those various scenic seaside towns that have long insisted the ferry system should be viewed as a extension of the highway system. Unfortunately for them, not a lot of people outside of those towns agree. And that means cuts are coming. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC. Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, 2012 THE VANCOUVER COURIER

opinion DISPIRITED HUSBAND ESCHEWING JULY 1

Harper’s policies lead to boycott of Canada Day “I’m not celebrating Canada Day this year. Harper’s killed it for me.” My husband blurted out these words the other day when I saw a Canada Day advertisement in the newspaper and asked what we—as a family—might want to do Sunday to celebrate our nation’s 145th birthday. I’ve become more patriotic since becoming a mother and want my children to know the history of their country and be excited and proud of where they live. So his words bowled me over. I actually felt sad that he felt so sad. I doubt anyone would describe my fella as political. We’ve had our fair share of “discussions” over political matters, but I’m the most politically annoyed member of our family on a regular basis. Not him. My husband is the first Canadian I know boycotting Canada Day because of the sitting prime minister. Wow. But don’t worry folks. No Maple Leaf flags or effigies of Stephen Harper are going to get torched. Not our style and I don’t want to frighten the children. I try to choose my words carefully if my children are within earshot of political or religious discussions, which is difficult, given I was raised Roman Catholic by Scottish immigrants in Quebec where we ate politics for breakfast. It’s why I left la belle province, though I heartily encourage Canadians to spend a year there to better understand Canada’s other solitude. Or forgo that Mexico or Hawaii trip and visit Montreal and Quebec City instead. They truly are unlike any other cities in the country. As I digested my husband’s antiCanada Day sentiments, I began to feel as he does. Deflated. I have voted for every major federal political party in my more than 25 years of visiting the voting booth, but no prime minister has left me as despondent over the future as Stephen Harper. Jean Chrétien and Brian Mulroney ticked me off but good many times, but not quite in the same daily way Harper and his Tories manage. The Canada of 2012 just doesn’t feel like the Canada of even two years ago. What happened? There is no one thing, but an accumulation of so many illogical decisions and disturbing acts of prime ministerial hubris that have simply worn us out. We should all be concerned for our parliamentary democracy given what has gone on the last few years. Our PM governs for corporations, not the people, which makes it hard to celebrate a country’s independence day. Harper may have won his firstpast-the-post majority (of which only 39 per cent of 60 per cent of Canadians actually voted for the Tories), but his democratic disdain for Canadians started prior to the 2011 election. Proroguing parlia-

letter of the week

fionahughes ment twice, breaking about 100 promises, including fixed election dates, demonizing his opponents with negative attack ads, being found in contempt of parliament, withholding documents essential to parliamentary oversight. How soon we forget. His majority, however, has given the man the rocket fuel to gut environmental protection legislation, kill important programs with the omnibus budget bill, silence his own MPs (if not terrorize them) if they voice a smidgen of disagreement, disregard science in favour of ideology, put forward a futile tough on crime bill etc. Harper’s oft-quoted words to a group of Conservative Americans a number of years ago keep ringing in my ears. “You won’t recognize Canada when I’m through with it.” Is he really what we wanted, Canada? I can’t keep fighting the last election so I need to find hope. It’s time to put fear into our dear leader’s heart. An apathetic populace is a leader’s strength (or in Dubya’s 9/11 era, it was keep ’em stupid, keep ’em scared for control). An engaged and informed populace is a leader’s Kryptonite. This next suggestion may sound farfetched, but so was the concept of universal health care when it was first suggested. It’s time for Elizabeth May to lead a winnable party. Laugh all you want. She is likeable, articulate, funny, engaging and has the smarts and the chutzpah to go toe to toe with Harper and Thomas Mulcair, who I predict will lose many of his NDP seats in Quebec in the next election. The floundering and seemingly aimless Liberal Party of Canada needs an electric shock to its system and must immediately nix any idea of Justin Trudeau running and get May to join them. She needn’t give up on her Green ideals. Liberals, like many Canadians, will embrace most of them. We must. Endless growth is killing the planet. Heck, even Paul Martin has gone green with his natural capital advocacy. With May, the Liberals could be a force to be reckoned with once more. Best of all—she has a heartbeat and no baggage. This is not an act of desperation. Nor is it radical. It’s an idea that needs to be fully explored. It’s time we stand on guard for thee. fhughes@vancourier.com Twitter: @HughesFiona

Dysfunctional economics are behind the temporary closing of Lord Byng pool, which is popular with Tom Perry and a Edward Wang, says a reader. photo Dan Toulgoet To the editor: Re: “Pool displeasure,” Central Park, June 22. Residents want to use the Lord Byng Pool. The facilities have been built. There is no shortage of life guards in a country that has well over one million people unemployed. So why is the pool closed for longer than a normal maintenance period? It’s shut because of dysfunctional economics. Certainly the city and the province are constrained because they are merely users of the currency and are dependent on tax revenues. But

the federal government is the monopoly issuer of Canada’s money and can afford to guarantee that every lifeguard, and for that matter anyone who wants a job, has one. If there were a war, would Canada ever surrender because we couldn’t afford to pay our soldiers? For those indoctrinated to argue that federal government deficit spending would automatically lead to inflation, please note that Canada’s debt to GDP ratio is about 35 per cent. Japan’s ratio is 233 per cent and there is no sign of any inflation there.

As John Maynard Keynes put it many years ago: “The Conservative belief that there is some law of nature which prevents men from being employed, that it is ‘rash’ to employ men, and that it is financially ‘sound’ to maintain a tenth of the population in idleness for an indefinite period, is crazily improbable—the sort of thing which no man could believe who had not had his head fuddled with nonsense for years and years…” Larry Kazdan, Vancouver

Group questions Kinder’s safety record We want To the editor: Re: “Alberta oil spill likely to shape pipeline image in B.C.,” June 13. With all due to respect to Keith Baldrey, I have to disagree with the characterization of the Houston-based corporation Kinder Morgan as “touting a good safety record.” For starters, it is disingenuous for Kinder Morgan to take credit for the Trans Mountain pipeline’s safety record in the period before it owned the pipeline. The pipeline was built long before it was bought by Kinder Morgan CEO Richard Kinder and his partner Bill Morgan— both former Enron executives who left when the U.S. energy giant collapsed. They took with them one of Enron’s subsidiary companies, Enron Liquids Pipeline LLP, which later became Kinder Morgan. Kinder Morgan bought the Trans Mountain Pipeline in 2005, when the pipeline was already 60 years old. So what about Kinder Morgan’s safety record since it bought the pipeline? Most people in B.C. might remember the oil spill in Burnaby in 2007. But that hasn’t been the only incident on this line, even in the short time Kinder Morgan has owned it. The year it bought the pipeline, there was a significant spill at a storage facility on Sumas Mountain, spilling approximately 210,000 litres of oil into

a local creek. Another spill took place at the same location last January, keeping children indoors for fear of airborne toxins. Not long after that incident, there was a fire and explosion at the Cherry Point refinery, which is serviced by the same pipeline. There was also a leak at the company’s Burnaby Mountain storage tank in 2009, and the pipeline was briefly shut off that summer when spilled oil was reported close to the Alberta border. All these incidents were associated with the same pipeline, over a relatively short period of time. The bottom line is that transporting oil is a dangerous business, and no one can claim to be able to do it without incident. Even if Kinder Morgan had been lucky enough to not have any major incidents, it still wouldn’t make this new pipeline a good idea. Just because Kinder Morgan bought an old existing pipeline that has largely been used to serve our local consumption over the last half century, it doesn’t mean it should get the green light to build a new pipeline to export oil along the same route. This route could go through the fields and backyards of many people across the Fraser Valley and the Lower Mainland, in areas far more heavily populated than when the pipeline was first built. Ben West, Wilderness Campaign Vancouver

Dylan mockery blowin’ in the wind To the editor: Re: “Knockin’ on Cranbrook’s door,” Kudos and Kvetches, June 20. Shame on you for using stupid terms like “mumbler” and “like we’re perplexed with most things Bob Dylan related.” Those of us who know anything about pop music revere

Dylan and can only feel sorry for those of you old fogies who fail to get it. (I’m 71, by the way.) And what’s wrong with Cranbrook? It probably has a weekly freebie without the idiocy constantly exhibited by K&K. Jim Shannon, Vancouver

March celebrated National Aboriginal Day

Changes to aboriginal programs spark protest Mike Howell Staff writer

Members of the aboriginal community took to the streets last photo Dan Toulgoet Thursday.

Several hundred members of the city’s aboriginal community took to the streets in protest last Thursday over the federal government’s plan to realign 14 youth programs they say will have devastating effects on young people. Christine Smith, co-chair

of the Metro Vancouver Aboriginal Executive Council, said aboriginal agencies shut down programs in Vancouver and the suburbs because the government recently stopped funding the $1.3 million worth of programs. Smith said the government’s decision runs contradictory to its message of fiscal responsibility. She predicted losing the pro-

grams will lead to higher social costs for the federal and provincial government. “When you talk about our youth, they’re our most vulnerable population—they have the highest drop-out rate, they have the highest suicide rate and these programs are really needed to connect youth to their culture,” said Smith outside the Aboriginal Friendship Centre on East Hastings before leading protesters along Commercial Drive. The protest coincided with the aboriginal community’s annual march to celebrate National Aboriginal Day in Canada. The march ended at Trout Lake, where protest was mixed with aboriginal performers drumming and singing. At issue is the Cultural Connections for Aboriginal Youth program, which is an umbrella mechanism that funds 14 projects within agencies such as the Urban Native Youth Association, the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre Society and Vancouver Aboriginal Community Policing centre. “Each program serves about 30 youth and you times that by 14, you’re looking at 420 youth who will be impacted directly,” said Stephen Cain, a 21-year-old member of a youth council that chooses which programs gets funded. Programs include workshops related to culture, education and training, healthy living, preventing family violence and canoe clubs. In an email to the Courier, a federal government spokesperson for Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada said

funding hasn’t been cut to the Cultural Connections for Aboriginal Youth program. “The money isn’t being cut, it’s on hold until our department ensures that its terms and conditions are aligned with our key objective of moving more young aboriginal people into the work force,” Michelle Perron said in the email. The government announced in March the Cultural Connections for Youth program was one of three components of the Aboriginal Peoples’ Program transferred to Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada. The transfer became effective April 1. But with the money “on hold,” Smith said the 14 programs were cancelled and staff laid off. Some organizations are facing a $30,000 deficit because of the government’s decision, she said. Perron said the government’s primary goal is to ensure aboriginal youth benefit from the Cultural Connections for Youth program “but we are concerned that it is not currently meeting their most pressing needs.” Added Perron: “That is why we are focusing our investments on programs that will equip young aboriginal people with the skills and experiences that will help them to participate in the economy.” The National Association of Friendship Centres, which administers the program funding, said it is working with the federal government to change the terms and conditions that may result in future funding. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

The War of 1812 Experience at Canada Place, as it’s so aptly called, remembers this major milestone in the journey our nation took to becoming an independent country. The exhibit, made possible by the Department of Canadian Heritage, is divided into three phases: The War Over the Water, Impressment, and The War and its Legacy. The exhibit also includes an attraction called The Canadian Trail, which takes participants on a walking tour across Canada. The exhibit is located on the West Promenade of Canada Place, 999 Canada Place.

The 56-year-old St. Marie, who has lost much of her mobility due to multiple sclerosis, called her motorized scooter a “life saver.” She agreed many scooter users seem oblivious to others around them. “What I’ve noticed is there are a lot of seniors speeding way faster than they should,” said St. Marie. “But then some scooter users have never even driven a car before, so they need some training.” Scooting Seniors runs from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. June 28 in the upper parking lot of Kingsgate Mall, near the corner of East Broadway and Kingsway.

Brown said that while motorized scooters and wheelchairs allow users an opportunity to be mobile, there’s often no training involved. “If they get their scooter through their doctor or physiotherapist, they might get some training,” said Brown. “But often it’s just people going out and buying a scooter for their elderly parents, but no one shows them how to use it properly.” That lack of training has led to accidents, including seniors tipping the vehicles over. Brown added there are no government requirements or standards when it comes to motorized scooters, some of which can reach speeds of 15 killometres an hour. “These scooters can really enhance their lifestyle, but the users should really know how to use them,” said Brown, who added that as our population ages the number of scooter users will continue to grow. The “roadeo” will offer scooter users tips in the safe and legal operation of their mobility equipment. Users will drive their scooter through an obstacle course to learn how to turn safely around corners, back up and go over a curb.

Feds slash emergency team cash Laura Rodgers Contributing writer

HUSAR concerns include floods.

Approximately $400,000 has been cut from a Vancouver-based emergency preparedness program, a move critics say leaves the city more vulnerable in the case of a natural disaster. The funding comes from the federal government’s Joint Emergency Preparedness Program (JEPP), which pays for 75 per cent of the cost of Vancouver’s Heavy Urban Search and Rescue (HUSAR) program. Five such teams across Canada were funded to the tune of $2.1 million, all of which was axed in the federal omnibus budget bill. The team, made up of 100 local firefighters, police officers and engineers, train on the weekends outside their day jobs. They have equipment to aid communities with search and rescue, water purification, first aid and shelter—enough to maintain operations “off the grid” for a full 10 days. But without this funding, the team is worried it won’t be able to respond to emergencies in the future. “Our funding model wasn’t great—that money was kind of the glue that held everything together,” said Vancouver Fire Chief John McKearney, who heads the Vancouver team. He speculated that, based on Vancouver’s current economic situation, the money to keep the team going is unlikely to be found through other sources. McKearney noted that the team had often responded to building collapses and provided search and rescue services. According to Julie Carmichael, spokesperson for the federal Ministry of Public Safety, the costs of emergency preparedness should be borne at the municipal level, rather than by the federal government. “We will not spend money on initiatives that are not necessary,” Carmichael wrote in an email. Green Party Coun. Adriane Carr brought a motion to city council urging it to oppose

“WE WILL NOT SPEND MONEY ON INITIATIVES THAT ARE NOT NECESSARY.” Julie Carmichael

the cuts. “From a citizen’s point of view it’s ironic the federal government says they’re going to cut JEPP just at a time when we’re needing the kind of services that JEPP supports,” said Carr, referring to the recent flood warnings for many communities along the Fraser River. On Friday, McKearney said the Vancouver team was under alert status in case riverside communities affected by flooding needed emergency assistance. The funding won’t peter out fully until 2013, but if similar flooding occurs next summer, McKearney believes that those same communities will be out of luck. “If we can no longer train our members to acceptable standards... then that will severely scale down the size of our team,” said McKearney. “Without the money, we’re [also] going to have a serious look at the amount of equipment we maintain.” Flood threats aren’t the only sort of emergency that the HUSAR team responds to—they also have equipment on the ready to respond to earthquakes. According to UBC professor Ian McKendry, most of Vancouver is at a serious risk for flooding, landslides and tsunamis in the event of an earthquake, a situation also referenced by Carr in her council motion. Carr hopes that the city can find funding to continue the program, but she isn’t optimistic. “I’m asking [city] staff to report back so we could check the status of the budget,” said Carr. “I’m sure hoping I get support.” laurarodgers@gmail.com Twitter: @laurarodgers

FIND THE PERFECT WOOD FLOORING THAT COMPLEMENTS DECOR PHOTO COURTESY NEWS CANADA

PHOTO COURTESY NEWS CANADA

You don’t have to match your floor with the colour of your wood furniture, says Cheryl Grant, an interior design and consumer trend consultant. “Matching your wood isn’t wrong, but it isn’t necessary.” She points out that there are three design features to a hardwood floor that you need to consider: 1) the type of wood; 2) the colour or stain; and 3) the character or finish. If you are looking for a harmonious look in your space, consider selecting the same “species” for type of wood, (e.g., oak kitchen cabinets and oak flooring). If you’re going for a more relaxed, eclectic décor, look for a type of wood that has

the opposite grain intensity (e.g., heavygrain oak kitchen cabinets matched with a smooth, clear-grain maple floor). The contrasting grains can diminish “sameness,” and add drama or character to the room. Grant says, “The key to selecting wood colour is to harmonize. A perfect match is okay, but often very difficult to achieve, and it can lead to a less interesting décor. Study the colour tone of your wood furniture and flooring.” The tones should be from the same family, either warm (red or yellow undertones) or cool (blue, white or green undertones), she explains. The depth or intensity of colour can be different, but the tone should be from the same family to maintain harmony.

Designer Tip: Hardwood can be a major financial investment. Flooring with a medium colour depth (versus very light or very dark) has longevity. Its classic beauty and warmth appeals to both trendsetters and design purists, and it goes with any type of furniture. If you decide to change your room décor one day, you’ve protected your financial investment.

to Canadian flooring company, Torlys. Hardwood floors range from standardwidth planks with an elegant, high-gloss surface to wide-planked flooring with a rustic, hand-scraped, oil finish. When in doubt, Grant explains: “Select a floor that best suits the degree of formal or casual living you are trying to achieve.”

The character of a floor relates to the width of its planks and finish, according

Bringing the outside in:

MODERN CUSTOM HOMES PROVIDE AMPLE ROOM FOR ENTERTAINING

The Eclipse Folding Door System and the Eclipse Folding Window System is an innovative new line of bi-folding doors and folding windows, designed to create the illusion of a larger more fluid space or, conversely, to create a closed space when privacy is needed. All this, and no fixed glass panels, mullions or posts to block the view. The Eclipse line of interior and exterior folding doors and folding windows features innovative track, sill, and folding door hardware technology. The product line includes folding and retractable doors, ideal for use in interior and exterior residences. When constructing a new home, owners need to take many things into consideration.

entertain guests regularly, having an entertainmentfriendly home pushes all the right buttons.

One of the premiere decisions for the homeowner’s family’s needs, or for the potential of major return when selling, is the option of providing optimal gathering places.

Odenza Homes’ designer Meliza Polvorosa was the advisor on a 2011 custom home built in the Dunbar area, and describes how the owner and Odenza collaborated on the details to create an entertainment paradise.

Entertainment “zones” in the home can include: a large, well-laid out kitchen with island seating; a dining area that’s spacious; a family room adjacent; a sprawling deck off the kitchen; a media room (home theatre); and even a rooftop deck to show off dynamic views and for hosting large parties.

“This 4,115 square foot home is in the West Coast Contemporary style, with cedar siding, granite and rock-dash stucco exterior,” she said. “Within the interiors we extended the theme and on the main floor really wanted to bring the outside in, so the owners could host large family gatherings year ‘round.”

Whether for the use of your family, including children and relatives, or for a host who loves to

The 19-foot wide all–encompassing kitchen, nook and family room are fully exposed to the south-

DESIGNER TIPS:

Hot stuff for entertaining

Meliza Polvorosa helped implement these functional and beautiful elements into the pictured Dunbar home:

• Elegant Kohler fixtures were selected for faucets.

• The flooring choice is 5” engineered walnut.

• The Wolf stove and cook-top (not shown) is with a 6-burner centre grill with enhanced venting.

• Richelieu drawer/cupboard hardware accents stained walnut cabinets, for warmth and West Coast flair.

• An off-site butler’s pantry holds a wine fridge; there is also a bar and wine room in the basement.

• The kitchen’s centre island is 10’ x 4’ and to eliminate joins in granite (where the max. is 8’ x 4’), we opted for an engineered material, Silestone countertop.

• A deluxe Miele coffee machine easily makes lattes for a large group.

The folding door systems come with up to 16 panels which can have eight panels folded in each direction. It’s a great replacement for sliding glass doors, patio doors, swing doors and sliding doors (eclipsearchitectural.com). facing large deck, which is outfitted with cozy allweather furniture and gas hook-ups for a barbecue. There is exterior lighting incorporated in, and builtin speakers are set up for a little party music! “By using Eclipse doors, produced locally in Chilliwack, we were able to allow natural light in and provide full access to the lavish sundeck, creating a very open and inviting space that can hold a large number of guests,” said Polvorosa. “And by implementing 10-foot ceilings, we added to the airiness of the space.” As if that panorama isn’t enough, this home also has a rooftop deck as its fourth level. With views for miles, it’s an excellent place to gather with friends and enjoy Vancouver’s vistas. Both decks are coated with porcelain tile finish, which is hardy and provides excellent drainage in our wet climate. Note: The allowable size of a deck or patio is dependent on the size of the lot, the square footage of the house to be built, the location of the lot (corner lot vs. middle), the zoning, etc. There is no one standard size patio or deck, every house is different. And if the patio is under two feet in height, it is designated as landscaping, so you may be able to opt for a larger backyard patio/deck.

SHOWN: SECURITY DOUBLE DOOR INSWING.

SECURITY THE WIZARD WAY BY HELEN PETERSON

Back in the day, many homes would have “bug screens” on the doors, ostensibly to keep insects out, stray animals at bay, and to warn that the home is not open for thieves to come in and help themselves.

After seeing the technology first-hand in Australia, President Rick Ilott developed the business in the Lower Mainland, and the popularity of the product line keeps growing.

But as any homeowner knew, these mesh and glass, tin can-framed “doors” were about as secure as a house of cards. It didn’t take much for a few rambunctious children or a big dog to rip right through them. Thieves would simply laugh at these “barricades.”

“For your windows — especially on the basement level or main floor — our security screens provide a safe and attractive alternative to unsightly bars and grills,” says Ilott. “Using a very fine, marine-grade stainless steel wire technology, we are able to make the appearance of having a clear view, both in and out, something you would never have been able to do in the past.”

Good-looking? Let’s just say they looked a lot better open than closed! Fast forward to the year 2000, and Burnabybased Wizard Industries, owned and operated by the Ilott family, knew there was a more secure, and much more attractive, option out there.

As well as keeping out raccoons, bears and intruders, the door and window security screens are so durable, they can withstand any type of accident or intentional bashing that comes their way. All this, while providing much-needed ventilation on hot days.

SHOWN: THE SECURITY SCREEN’S LOCKING SYSTEM

“When a homeowner, or apartment manager, is interested in having the doors or windows application, they simply call us up,” says Ilott, “and we send an estimator / installer over right away. Our employee will take measurements, discuss material options (corrosion-resistant aluminum frames come in white — the most popular, — brown, black and coffee-tan) and provide a cost estimate.” After a customer decides to proceed with the project, the windows and/or doors are custom-made at the Burnaby factory and can be installed and ready to roll by the next week! One concern that people may have is that they are too secure, as in someone could be trapped inside in the event of an emergency. Ilott assures that the

doors do not lock on the inside, they are activated by a smooth, easy latch. Safety is of utmost priority for Wizard’s president and team. “Our security doors and windows fit right onto the outside casing of your existing frame and door jamb,” says Ilott. “We needn’t do any destruction of your existing property. It’s peace of mind that will enhance the value of your home.”

Contact Wizard Industries Inc. for an estimate: National Wizard Hotline: 1-888-WIZ-DOOR or wizardindustries.com. Made to order security screens come in the following applications: • Single Entry Inswing/Outswing • Double Doors Inswing/Outswing • Sliding Patio Glass Doors • All Types of Sliding Windows • Casement and Awning Windows

Shady characters Wizard Screens has adapted and improved the 1917 innovation of a simple spring loaded window shade that retracts after a slight tug. The Wizard Retractable Screen Door system (shown, right) mounts vertically to a door or window frame and hides the retractable screen that pulls across the frame for an instant screen door. This allows you to ventilate your home and save on energy costs. And best of all, when you don’t need it, the screen just retracts and disappears out of sight and completely out of your way.

Picks of the week

1. Who doesn’t like tales of Greek mythology set to roller disco and the music of the Electric Light Orchestra? Audiences and critics of the 1980 stinker, Xanadu, that’s who. But nostalgia and irony have a strange way of working. In 2007, the much-maligned movie starring Olivia Newton-John, The Warriors’ Michael Beck and, sadly, Gene Kelly in his last film role, was transformed into a Broadway hit, which the New York Times called an “outlandishly enjoyable stage spoof.” Now the campy love letter to the early ’80s rolls across the Arts Club’s Granville Island Stage June 27 to Aug. 4. Headbands optional. For tickets and more information, go to artsclub.com.

2. Speaking of outlandishly enjoyable spoofs and love letters to the ’80s, L.A.’s Steel Panther pays tribute to the golden age of hair metal with its Sunset Strip-approved brand of crotch-hugging spandex rock June 28 and 29 at the Commodore. If there are any tickets left to the band’s wildly popular debauchery-filled shows, you’ll find them at ticketmaster.ca or by calling 1-855-985-5000. 3. Robot-obsessed Montreal DJ Kid Koala touches down in Vancouver for two nights, June 27 and 28, as part of the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. His latest endeavour has been called “an immersive headphone concert experience,” where audiences sit in inflatable “space pods” and listen to the show through headphones as Kid Koala brings his graphic novel, Space Cadet, and accompanying score to life. It all goes down at Granville Island’s Performance Works. For tickets and more information, go to coastaljazz.ca.

kudos & kvetches Heaven and shell

Lonesome George is dead, long live Lonesome George. The Galapagos Islands’ famed giant Pinta Island tortoise, believed to be the last of his kind, has gone to the big shell in the sky, according to staff at the Galapagos National Park in Ecuador. While Lonesome George’s exact age was unknown, he was estimated to be 100 years old, which made him a young adult in the prime of his tortoise shagging years (giant tortoises can live up to 200 years). Although there are now 20,000 giant tortoises living in the Galapagos, Lonesome George was the last known Pinta Island tortoise, which were plentiful until the late 19th century when sailors and fishermen pushed the tortoise population to the brink of extinction, hunting them for their meat… their delicious, succulent tortoise meat. Lonesome George was discovered in 1972 and naturally witnessed many key events and cultural shifts in tortoise history, such as Prohibition, when iguanas controlled all the illegal liquor entering the islands, the tragic albatross concert of 1969 and the rise of disco,

where, rumour has it, George developed a taste for the nose candy when he started hanging around an unsavoury Blue-Footed Booby. George became part of the Galapagos National Park breeding program, which sadly produced no little Georges, though being a tortoise and all, he was said to be a patient and attentive lover. George leaves behind his longtime caretaker of 40 years, Fausto Llerena, no offspring or family to speak of, and plenty of trails in the sand and dirt. The park plans to carry out a necropsy to determine what killed Lonesome George, although it is likely the tortoise suffered…. a slow death.

Clock tease

First Hastings-Sunrise, now Big Ben According to Reuters, London’s iconic Big Ben clock will be renamed “Elizabeth Tower” in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee. The ornate, 96-metre tower with four clock faces has been one of the most recognized landmarks in Britain since it was completed in 1859. The name Big Ben is taken from the giant bell inside the tower, which chimes the theme song to the BBC World Service, which is odd since we’re pretty sure

A21

the BBC World Service didn’t exist in 1859. Between bites of crumpet, Prime Minister David Cameron’s spokesman issued a statement from the PM saying, “I think it is a fitting tribute to the Queen and the service she has given to our country in this jubilee year.” But we’re not buying it. As you probably know, the members of K&K have long been supporters of the British monarchy. Not only do they liven up our currency, they make for entertaining, Oscarwinning movies. However, we’re also fans of things keeping the names they’re saddled with. We live in an age of attention deficit disorders, where everything needs to be new and shiny and engaging, and names have become little more than interchangeable brands. Should the Queen get a building named after her? Sure. But why mess with tradition? And, besides, what does a clock tower built in 1859 have to do with a monarch whose reign began nearly 100 years later? We say, keep it current and give the Queen her own tube station, Internet café or yoga studio. Heck you could even name a yoga pose after her, such as the Downward Facing Queen or the Grimacing Monarch. They’d all involve some form of hand waving.

Sexually charged Frazer and Wheeler beautifully matched

Questionable directorial choices wound Macbeth Macbeth

At Bard on the Beach until Sept. 20

Tickets: 604-739-0559 bardonthebeach.org

I had no idea war could be so neat and tidy. Mara Gottler’s handsome costumes— grey or brown longcoats with subtly hued tartan shawls clipped at the shoulder— look as if they’ve just come back from the drycleaners and they stay that way. Are these Scottish warriors, returning warweary but victorious after putting down a rebellion? Bob Frazer (Macbeth), the hero of the day, hasn’t a hair out of place. The only one who looks like he’s seen action is actor John Murphy, the sergeant who delivers the news of Macbeth’s valor to Duncan, King of Scotland. Murphy’s leg is bandaged and bloody; mysteriously, he limps in every other role—and there are many. I was worried that Murphy had injured himself in one of Nick Harrison’s terrific choreographed battle scenes. But it’s just one of Miles Potter’s directorial choices—some of which don’t make a lot of sense. The Weird Sisters—looking like fashion plates rather than the wild, cauldron-stirring creatures of the Scottish moors—are not masked when they speak to each other but don masks when they confront Macbeth. Why? Later, Macbeth is circled by shrouded figures holding large shards of mirror upon which are painted faces—maybe all the faces of those he’s had murdered? It looks good but we know Macbeth doesn’t need mirrors to see himself mired in guilt. Frazer makes a handsome Macbeth, but his character’s decline into madness comes very quickly thereby stripping away the possibility of us seeing our own potential for wickedness as a parallel to his. In the program’s director’s notes, Potter quotes scholar Lisa Low: “We listen to Macbeth as we listen to the beatings of our own heart... we sense the height and depth of

our own evil.” This Macbeth barely pauses before, at the urging of Lady Macbeth (Colleen Wheeler), the height and depth of his evil is fully realized. Kevin McAllister’s austere, Gothic-looking set is appropriate to the grim nature of the play. In the first half, a faux-granite scrim blocks the view of Vanier park trees and the North Shore mountains. In the second half, the scrim is drawn up and there we see what could be leafy Birnam Wood beyond the set’s arches. Composer/sound designer Murray Price’s heavily percussive score is effective and the bagpipes at the end get the blood coursing. Frazer and Wheeler are beautifully matched. Potter, like most contemporary directors of Macbeth, emphasizes the sexual excitement between them and uses Lady Macbeth’s assault on Macbeth’s manhood as the spark that sets fire to his ambition. When Frazer runs his tongue from Wheeler’s collarbone up to her chin, we feel the full extent of their attraction. (Whew, it suddenly gets hot and steamy on such a cool evening under the big tent.) Later, when Macbeth rejects her, the groundwork for Lady Macbeth’s suicide is laid. Statuesque Wheeler brings such potency to the role it leaves no doubt that Macbeth will buckle under her demands. In casting young Anton Lipovetsky, newly graduated from Studio 58 and excellent in The Taming of the Shrew, Potter makes a weak choice for Malcolm, heir to Duncan’s throne. Lipovetsky is a young man with impressive appeal but does not yet have the necessary gravitas to bring the story to a positive, or at least, hopeful conclusion. It’s possible that Potter means to suggest that Scotland will now be led by a sapling of a youth and, consequently, continuing unrest is inevitable. That would make this Macbeth a very different play. —Jo Ledingham joled@telus.net

Bob Frazer as Macbeth pays a visit to the Weird Sisters, in the good-looking, but bewildering Bard on the Beach production.

Vancouver Magic Circle president youngest in the history of the International Brotherhood of Magicians

Young magician pulls off new trick Michael Kissinger Staff writer

At the ripe old age of 20, magician Alex Seaman has a ways to go before reaching grizzled veteran status, but a quick glance at his list of past performances you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise. His magician’s resume reads like that of a seasoned road warrior or an adolescent Chad Kroeger. The list includes: Port Coquitlam Car Show, the Vancouver Police Department’s Police Mutual Benevolent Association, 1st Port Coquitlam Beavers, May Day Selection Tea Banquet, Westwood Plateau Golf and Country Club, Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall, family reunions, talent shows, spring carnivals, pre schools, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and the Canadian Lebanese Association of British Columbia. There are many more. He’s even rocked an Applebee’s and Boston Pizza to their greasy foundations. This year, Seaman added another notch to his magician’s belt, which, to his credit, is not diamond encrusted. In February, then only 19 years old, he became the president of the Vancouver Magic Circle and the youngest president in the history of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, which includes the Vancouver chapter. “Magic is, has and always will be my passion,” says the young magician, who studies criminology at Douglas College when he isn’t busy perfecting his craft, teaching magic lessons or performing at kids’ birthday parties. Sadly, Seaman’s duties as president of the Vancouver Magic Circle sound less than magical: chairing the organization’s executive meetings and the circle’s

Vancouver Magic Circle president Alex Seaman, 20, shows off some of the hardware he’s won at magic competitions. photo submitted general meetings and, wait for it, overseeing various committees. But bureaucracy and protocol are only a small part of the Magic Circle, which meets once a month at “a secret location” to conduct magic workshops, hold friendly competitions and bask in the camaraderie of fellow magicians whose art form has been under siege for years by the high tech sorcery of the Internet and video games. Part guild, part workshop, part historical preservation society, the Vancouver Magic Circle was founded more than 70 years ago, with a mandate to carry on the traditions and foster the art of magic. In its early days, the well-dressed group would meet

at the Devonshire Hotel and later Hotel Vancouver, and its annual banquet was considered a major event on the city’s social calendar, each year attracting some 600 people, including the mayor and chief of police. It wasn’t until the 1970s that women were allowed into the circle and the formal dress code relaxed. Past members have included H.B. MacLean, inventor of the MacLean Method of Handwriting; broadcaster Ken Hughes; Leon Mandrake and his son Lon; Dr. Grant Gould, who owned the West End apartment where actor Errol Flynn died in 1959; Juliana Chen, the “World’s First Lady of Magic”; and two-time world magic champion Shawn Farqu-

har. Currently, the circle counts 120 members in its mystical midst, up from recent years, making it the largest IBM branch in Canada. The Courier first talked with Seaman six years ago for a cover story on the Vancouver Magic Circle. He had recently joined the organization as a junior member and said he enjoyed learning about the “presentation” of magic—something that still captures his interest. “There’s a huge difference between doing magic to know the secret [of the trick]… and then there’s learning magic to actually be able to perform it and share it,” says Seaman, who first became interested in magic when he

was 11 and took a trip to Victoria, where he visited Tony’s Trick and Joke Shop. He spent an hour and a half in the store before leaving with three magic tricks. At school, he quickly became known for his magic pursuits, performing at talent shows and for classmates. “I’d have to be really quick with my scheduling between classes to allow time knowing I’d be late for class because I’d have a circle of people all wanting to see something.” Besides busy lunch hours, Seaman also credits magic for giving his self-confidence added sparkle. “When it comes right down to it, you can do something that a fraction of the population can do. It’s a marketable but very unique skill set that almost nobody can replicate and that sort of puts me in my own category of individuality and give me a really unique outlook. So there’s a lot of confidence with that, especially when it comes to public speaking.” And it’s paying off. Last year, he snagged trophies for Pacific Coast Stage Champion and Canadian Stage Champion of Magic. However, despite a steady stream of gigs, and the pride and accolades that come from being a champion magician and the youngest president in the history of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, there’s still one thing Seaman can’t make magically appear— money. “I think if I had a calculated amount of how much I’ve spent [on magic], I’d probably launch myself into a depression.” For more information on Seaman and the Vancouver Magic Circle, go to gottabemagic.com or ibmring92.com. mkissinger@vancourier.com

London-bound Canadian wins half-marathon Andrew Fleming

Contributing writer Two Canadian Olympic marathon runners made Sunday’s Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon their final race before making a run for the podium at the upcoming London Summer Games. Reid Coolsaet, 32, had this year’s winning time for the annual race stretching 21.2 kilometres from UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium to the finish line in Stanley Park. Coolsaet crossed the tape early Sunday morning in a time of one hour, three minutes, 16 seconds— just five seconds shy of the standing course record set in 2007 by Kenya’s Patrick Nthiwa. “That would have been really nice, to have that extra five seconds, but for where we are in training, I’m happy with it,” Coolsaet told the Courier shortly after finishing. “This is the final prep going into London and I just wanted to get a good effort in the middle of some high mileage training.” Coolsaet and training partner Eric Gillis, who completed the race 40 seconds behind him for third place, have both been putting in serious road work together in Guelph, Ont. working with head coach Dave Scott Thomas of the Speed River Track and Field Club. Coolsaet said they put in over 200 kilometres last week and nearly as many in the past several days. “It was pretty hard for Eric and I to come in here with such high mileage but I think we both got what we wanted out of it, which was a solid effort,” added Coolsaet. “It wasn’t hot, so that was nice, because we’re

Two giants drafted

Two Vancouver Giants were selected in the second and fourth rounds of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft June 22 and 23 in Pittsburgh. Centre Jordan Martinook was picked in the second round and went 58th overall to the Phoenix Coyotes. The 19-year-old from Leduc Alta. wasn’t overlooked in the WHL bantam draft and joined the Giants for their 2010-11 season. In his second year with the Giants, he scored 40 goals and added 24 assists. Martinook stands six-foot-one at 200 pounds and turns 20 next month, meaning he is eligible to play in the NHL next season. The Coyotes host a prospects camp this week and will decide if Martinook skates a third season with the Giants or if he joins the Phoenix development system. Defenceman Brett Kulak won’t travel far from home to join the Calgary Flames. The native of Stony

They came in first and third place. coming from Ontario and it is pretty warm for running.” Both runners qualified for the 42-km London Olympic Marathon at last October’s Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, where Coolsaet came in third with a time of 2:10:55 and Gillis in fourth place with 2:11:28. Gillis, who placed 33rd in the 10,000m event at the 2008 Beijing Games, admitted he would have liked to have done better. “I’m not really happy with it but it is only really a buildup,” said Gillis. “I don’t have too much expectation

going into these things. Reid put in a surge around 15 kilometre mark that I tried to cover but couldn’t. I felt like I still finished strong though.” The Vancouver half-marathon’s defending champion, Kenyan Kip Kangogo who lives in Lethbridge, Alta., came in second with a time of 1:03:27. The only runners from British Columbia to make the top 10 were Victoria’s Matt Clout, who came in seventh with a time of 1:07:57, and Drew Nicholson of Surrey, who came in ninth at 1:13:29. Krista Duchene, a 35-year-old

Plain, Alta. was selected in the fourth round, 105th overall by the Flames. Kulak played in all 72 regular season games for the Giants and registered nine goals, 15 assists and a teambest +29 rating. The 18-year-old becomes the third Giant in club history selected by the Flames organization. Giants executive VP and general manager Scott Bonner congratulated the players and their families. “We’re really proud to see both players chosen today,” he said in a news announcement. Being passed over in the WHL bantam draft is no indication a player’s hockey career is over, he said. “It’s a real testament to their character and it’s proof that regardless of where or if you’re chosen in the bantam draft, you can still realize your dreams with hard work and a good support system around you. It’s also a proud day for our scouting and player development staff, as we continue to build on our track record

of making strong late-round Bantam Draft and list player decisions. Congratulations to Jordan, Brett and their families.”

Velo-city 2012

For four days, hundreds of international cycling intelligentsia will gather for Velo-city Global 2012. Considered the premier conference on cycling planning and advocacy, Velo-city gathers engineers, architects, researchers, academics, environmentalists, educators and regular folk who like to ride their bikes. Since 1980, the global conference has been held in Copenhagen, Paris, Dublin, Perth and Montreal and up to 1,500 pre-registered delegates are expected in Vancouver. The conference is not open to the public. Dozens of lectures, panel discussions, workshops and roundtable talks take place each day. On Wednesday, for example, Finnish

mother of three who also trains in Guelph, won the women’s race in 1: 14:03, a time good enough for 13th place overall in the field of more than 4,500 runners from 22 different countries. Vancouver women to finish in the top 10 include Rebecca Reid (7th place), Mary Walsh (8th place) and Kristin Smart (10th place).

After Buono, Benevides must make Lions his own Jim Morris Contributing writer

Coaches are often measured by wins and losses. When a new coach is hired his immediate goal is to make the team better than it was the year before. With that in mind it’s easy to understand why Mike Benevides says his situation as new head coach of the B.C. Lions is “not the norm.’’ Benevides is taking over a team that finished first in the CFL West last year, then sipped champagne from the Grey Cup. His predecessor Wally Buono won 254 games, more than any other coach in league history. Talk about a tough act to follow. “There almost seems to be no upside for him,’’ said Glen Suitor, a TSN football announcer and former player. “If they win the championship again, they were expected to.’’ Stepping into an almost no-win situation shows Benevides’ character and loyalty to the Lions. He turned down job offers from teams where winning two or three more games during the season would have made him a candidate for coach of the year. The challenge for Benevides is to put his mark on the Lions. He won’t make people forget about the previous coach, but he can prove Buono was right in grooming him for the position. The transition from the way Buono did things to how Benevides wants them done has started.

Mike Benevides joined the B.C. Lions in 2003 and this year replaces Wally Buono photo Rebecca Rempel as head coach. The Lions’ season begins Friday. “I think it’s in progress,’’ Benevides told the Courier last week as the Lions prepared to open the regular season June 29 against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. “I think we are going through that. “I still think there is work to be done.’’ When Benevides talks about how he wants to shape the Lions, you get an idea that maybe past teams lacked some cohesion. Players on offence and defence wore the same uniform but might not have always been a team. “There’s going to be more accountability,’’ said Benevides. “It’s very much about us, not about one side of the ball or the

Thank you Overwaitea Food Group for making miracles happen for BC’s kids.

other side of the ball. We all have to work in conjunction to win the game. “It’s very much about managing the game and having all the pieces pulling the rope in the same way.’’ Benevides brings a different teaching style. Buono came from an era where a coach told players what he wanted them to do. Benevides will explain why he wants his players to do something. “Mike comes with a very different approach,’’ said Suitor. “He brings a lot of enthusiasm, energy. He’s also more of an educator. He’s a stickler for the details but will teach you why. He’ll still be on top of

them as far as discipline goes.’’ The 44-year-old Benevides has worked with Buono since joining the Calgary Stampeders as a special teams co-ordinator in 2000. When Buono left Calgary for Vancouver in 2003, Benevides came with him. During that time Benevides has established his own identity as a coach and formed relationships with players. To be successful in his new role he can’t become a different person. “I’m going to be myself,’’ said Benevides. “I’m not going to be Wally.’’ Slotback Geroy Simon, who needs just 68 yards to become the league’s all-time receiving leader, thinks that can be a good thing. “I know the communication with the players, it was really good with Wally. I think it’s going to continue and maybe be a little better,’’ said Simon. “Mike really feels the veterans and the leadership group have a good finger on the pulse of the locker room. He wants to keep those lines of communication open. That might be a little bit of a change.’’ The Lions want to improve on the horrible 1-5 start they had last season. They want to win more than the 11 games they did last year. With Benevides as coach, the Lions can become a better team and still not win the Grey Cup. That’s the problem with a job where you are only measured on wins and losses. Jim Morris is a veteran reporter who has covered sports for 30 years. Reach him at jamesmorris@shaw.ca.
