22 23 Sport committee questions ‘field house’ decision Xanadu sends up 1980s Hockey coach’s bad trip

Buildings will house art studios Sandra Thomas Staff writer

Anne Thompson says people want to use both the Carnarvon and Elm Park field houses.

The chair of the Vancouver Sport Network’s facilities committee is surprised at how quickly the park board moved to house artists by allowing them access to field houses. Anne Thompson said some city sports groups have long lobbied the park board for improvements and access to field houses adjacent to sports fields. “It’s frustrating because some sports groups have been asking for years, but it’s been so quick and easy for this artist proposal to go ahead,” she said. The park board is opening five empty caretaker houses for its new Field House Studio Residency

Program. While the field houses are described by the park board as “empty,” and many no longer have caretakers, some are used as storage for sports equipment from amateur leagues. The program will see the field houses converted to studios in exchange for 350 hours of community involvement from the chosen artists. The field houses available are at Elm, Falaise, Hadden, Slocan and Strathcona parks. The sports groups using the Elm Park field house have been told they can move their equipment to Carnarvon Park on West 19th Avenue at Mackenzie Street, which is closer to where they play.

Seismic upgrade plan rattles parents and school officials $60-million project will transform Kitsilano secondary Naoibh O’Connor Staff writer The Vancouver School Board and parents of Kitsilano secondary students are worried provincial government control over planning the high school’s seismic upgrade may dilute community input. The Ministry of Education ap-

proved the almost $60-million project in late 2011. It will transform the school and grounds, but maintain some of the school’s heritage features. It’s one of the costliest school upgrading projects ever undertaken in the province. Partnership BC, a provincial entity that deals major infrastructure

projects such as hospitals, roadways and bridges, is managing the job due to its cost, size and scope. It’s using a design-build procurement process rather than one of the school board’s typical procurement procedures called design-bid-build, explained Jim Meschino, the VSB’s director of facilities.

“It’s a different process for us so we’re concerned about ensuring there’s enough public consultation built into design-build to make it work,” he said. In design-build, the district outlines requirements and specifications are outlined and three design-build firms, which have architects tied to contractors,

are sought to propose the best schemes before one is selected. In design-bid-build, an architect designs the project with district input before it’s put out to bid. School board staff have worked with ministry staff to address the concerns, and several issues have already been resolved. See PARENTS on page 4

Parents want more district staff on project board

Continued from page 1 But a letter to the Ministry of Education has been drafted and was scheduled to go before the board for approval at its July 3 meeting after the Courier’s print deadline. The letter states the district has “urgent objections” about fundamental changes to the project’s development and implementation. “These objections include the removal of local authority, minimal consultative input and a growing concern that the outcome may be a less-than-optimal physical and educational facility,” the letter states. Board chair Patti Bacchus said the board wants to ensure the best possible outcome for Kitsilano’s upgrade. “The concern that we’ve had as a board, and that

An open house last Wednesday June 27 targeted seismic upgrading at photo Dan Toulgoet Kitsilano secondary. we’ve certainly heard from the parents at Kits, is the design-build has the potential to leave out that

community participation in looking at design, looking at how this process proceeds,” she told the

Courier—a sentiment echoed by Kitsilano PAC chair Lisa Herrera in an email to the Courier. “We have concerns that the design-build process could lead to decisions being made without the involvement of key stakeholders, and contrary to what stakeholders have agreed must be included in a renewed Kitsilano secondary,” she wrote. “We are very pleased to have the support of the VSB in advancing our views to the Ministry of Education and hope that the VSB’s letter to the MOE will result in changes to the [Request For Proposal] evaluation process to allow direct involvement by key stakeholders such as Kits PAC.” A key request noted in the letter is that the project’s board have more school district staff on it than provincial representatives,

which is not currently the case, but Meschino said progress is being made to resolve the district’s outstanding concerns. “At the end of the day, our intent here is to make it work and get the best possible school we can possibly get for the Kitsilano community and the teachers and students attending, regardless of the procurement fashion. We want to make sure we’re engaging the stakeholders as best we can and ensuring we have buy-in from everybody and that everybody’s going to like this new school when it gets built,” he said. A Ministry of Education spokesperson would not comment before the board letter arrives at the ministry. Twitter: @Naoibh

Park board commissioner confirms Carnarvon field house renovation

Continued from page 1 But Thompson said the park board dropped the ball when it came to Elm Park, which includes a baseball diamond. Its field house is used to store football equipment. “These sports groups want Carnarvon and Elm,” Thompson said. “Why can’t they put the artists at Kerrisdale Community Centre? It’s only a couple of blocks

away. Both of these other parks are beside sports fields.” She added with more residents moving into condos and apartments, sports groups have a growing need for equipment storage. “Storage doesn’t make headlines, but it is vital to the sport organizations run by volunteers in our neighbourhoods,” Thompson said.

Vision Vancouver park board chair Sarah Blyth, who first proposed making field houses available to artists, said sports groups are being considered for field house use. “We want to make sure sports groups have a place, too,” said Blyth. Blyth confirmed the field house at Carnarvon is scheduled for major renovations, including the con-

struction of proper storage space, improved concession and outdoor seating. “We are absolutely considering other field houses for sports groups,” she said. “Some communities want a focus on sports.” NPA commissioner John Coupar told the Courier allowing artists and sports groups access to field houses increases park use. He noted the more convenient

it is for residents to participate in sports and enjoy this city’s parks, the greater the use. But East Side resident Barb Hertzein questions what the park board considers “art.” In an email to the Courier, Hertzein wrote in part, “… At a time when parks board is supposedly struggling to meet the budget and making cuts to services, staff,

Amusement park welcomes more than one million guests each year

Playland increases hours for summertime fun Will McDonald Contributing writer

Playland is offering its stomachchurning rides seven days a week for the summer. The amusement park, located next to the PNE on East Hastings near Trans Canada Highway, has increased its hours to cater to students on vacation, its largest demographic for the summer. While Playland hasn’t added any new rides this summer, it remains a popular destination for thrill seekers across the Lower Mainland. Its classic wooden rollercoaster is still the most popular attraction. The coaster, built in 1958, has seen thousands of riders but is still running strong. Although it may look and feel rickety, it adds to the perceived danger riders enjoy. “The coaster is always going to be the number one ride. It doesn’t matter what time during the year,” said Playland rides manager Adem Hamzagic. Park-goer Karina Sullivan said she rode the wooden coaster as a child and brought her daughter to Playland to experience it for the first time. “The big attraction for me is that [wooden] rollercoaster. I remember going on it lots as a kid and so it’s kind of fun to introduce my daughter to it, too,” she said. Last year, Playland introduced its newest and tallest ride, the Atmosfear. At 215 feet high and spinning at speeds over 70 kilometres and hour, the ride earns its name. With more than a million guests visiting Playland a year,

Playland’s wooden roller coaster was built in 1958. and several thousand visitors per day, there can often be long lineups, but Hamzagic said that there

to 3,000 people here,” he said. The Flume, a log ride with a 40-foot drop down a water slide at the end, is a popular choice for guests. Its lower height restriction than the larger rides and photos for sale make it one of the top attractions for families with small children. The centre of the park is dedicated to younger visitors and features smaller, less frightening attractions such as bumper cars and a Merry-Go-Round. The haunted house at the centre of Playland provides a small sample of the terror that brings guests in for Fright Nights every October, when the whole park adopts a Halloween theme. While some patrons may feel unsafe on the fear-inducing rides, Hamzagic said all 150 of the park’s employees undergo safety training. Day passes cost $29.95 for patrons over 48 inches tall and junior passes are available for $19.95. Parking is available for $10. A pass to the park allows unlimited access to all the rides, with the exception of the Drop Zone, an attraction where riders free-fall 100 feet and swing from a cable, and the Revelation, which spins users 160 feet in the air. Playland is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends. The park is only open on weekends in September and closes at the end of that month, and reopens for two weeks in October. Twitter: @w_d_mcdonald

Seventy-five per cent of teachers who cast ballots on a contract ratification question last week voted yes, according to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. The BCTF and B.C. Public School Employers’ Association reached a tentative agreement through mediation last Tuesday, which required endorsement from teachers. A total of 21,044 voted over three days, which translates to a 52 per cent turnout. In a Friday press release, the teachers’ federation acknowledged many members likely aren’t happy with the agreement. President Susan Lambert noted it hasn’t solved class size or composition issues and it doesn’t increase salaries, which she said are below teacher salaries elsewhere in Canada.

Susan Lambert

Patti Bacchus

But Lambert added that the union did get modest improvements in most teacher benefits and some leave provisions. “However, the most significant achievement is that we succeed in getting government [to] take its concession demands off the table,” she said in Friday’s release. “Throughout 80 bargaining sessions, government refused to budge from net zero and persisted in demanding the elimination of hard-won labour rights and fair process provisions around post and fill and transfer and recall. With this settlement we have forced government off its punitive agenda.” The deal isn’t sealed yet. Representatives from the B.C. Public School Employers Association must also ratify the agreement. That vote takes place Wednes-

day, July 4 at the Radisson Airport Hotel in Richmond. Ballots will be cast as part of BCPSEA’s representative council meeting that runs from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Results are expected to be announced during the meeting. There’s one representative from each district— board chair Patti Bacchus represents Vancouver. It’s a weighted voted, Bacchus told the Courier, so Vancouver gets 14 votes and smaller districts get fewer. Boards held their own binding votes prior to the BCPSEA’s meeting. The VSB held its vote Tuesday, after the Courier’s print press deadline, during a private session.

Trading season

The Vancouver School Board has hired a new associate superintendent—Scott

Robinson, who’s an assistant superintendent for the Richmond school district. A position on the district’s senior management team opened up when deputy superintendent Jordan Tinney announced he’d accepted a job in Surrey. Tinney starts in his new position in August. Also moving to the Surrey school district is the VSB’s director of instruction Catherine Remedios. “There are a whole bunch of moves in the metro area right now at different levels,” board chair Patti Bacchus said. “It’s like trading season on sports teams. It’s crazy—people are shifting from district to district and we’re all looking over our shoulders, but yet we’re all eyeing other people’s staff.” Bacchus added that many senior staff in the VSB are in their mid to late 50s and preparing to retire—a point mentioned often in recent years. “[There are] some really good people coming up along but need that experience. We have a lot of good talent internally that we need to be supporting and developing,” she said.

news Central Park with Sandra Thomas

Pool party

A group of unhappy swimmers is planning to protest outside Lord Byng Pool Wednesday morning (July 4), wearing nothing but their bathing suits. That’s slightly more modest than their birthday suits, but I still hope the weather holds out for them. I wrote in this space last week about a group of residents who frequent the pool, located in West Point Grey, concerned about a two-month closure this summer. The pool was scheduled to close for at least four weeks due to scheduled maintenance, but the park board decided to extend that closure for the remainder of the summer to save money during what it describes as a slow time of the year. Tom Perry, “spokeswimmer” for the group, doesn’t buy it. Perry is skeptical about the amount of maintenance work the pool needs. He notes as of June 27, four days before the pool was to close, lifeguard staff were unaware of any scheduled major repairs. Perry said Lord Byng is busy

Swimmers Tom Perry (right) and Edward Wang post a notice about the impending closure of Lord photo Dan Toulgoet Byng pool. year-round. He’s also discovered the pool is likely rented out for private functions for one week in July and the final week of August. “This begins to make me wonder who is telling the truth,” Perry said. In response to his inquiries, Perry received a letter from the board’s director of recreation, Thomas Soulliere, who confirmed

the pool could be rented out for at least one private function this summer. Soulliere wrote: “In regards to your question about rentals, I can confirm that we are regularly contacted by organizations interested in renting a pool facility for a special event or production. It is not unusual to use the shoulder periods (beginning/end) of a closure

to accommodate such groups, as these opportunities interfere less with the typical programming schedules. Our staff were approached by two local arts groups, each requesting a couple of days to rent portions of the facility. We have not approved the application for the start of the closure period, but are considering the latter, which would occur during the re-

commissioning phase just prior to re-opening the facility. The group would be responsible for all associated costs and a rental fee.” As for the lengthy closure due to maintenance needs, Soulliere’s email says an extended closure through the summer was considered by the board to be opportunity to address additional maintenance items, such as tile repair and re-grouting of the pool basin, which requires significant “downtime.” “This period also allows us to redeploy the facility staff for the balance of the season, thereby reducing operating costs,” Soulliere wrote. His email noted the entire period of the closure is not required for the maintenance work. “However, given that we have the ability to offer aquatic services in other locations for the remainder of the summer season, we concluded that the facility could remain closed until the start of the fall season in early September,” Soulliere wrote. Perry says at least 400 people have signed a petition protesting the closure. He adds many swimmers he’s spoken to would be willing to pay a higher fee for monthly or annual passes if they could get more consistent use of the pool, which was also closed for weeks due to maintenance in 2011.

Digging up the dirt on park board and community

WEB POLL NATION Go to to vote Should helmets be provided as part of the city’s bike rental program next year? Last week’s poll question: Do you support an individual’s right to physician-assisted death?

Yes 85 per cent No 15 per cent This is not a scientific poll.

So B.C. Liberal MLA Kevin Krueger is packing it in (well, eventually) and is taking his boombox voice out of the legislature for good come the next election. But he won’t be the only high-profile MLA to call it quits by then and announce he or she won’t be running in the next election. As the re-election prospects for the B.C. Liberal government look increasingly dim, expect a number of others to opt out of running for what may likely be a seat in Opposition. I suspect any veterans of a provincial government cabinet would dread the idea of sitting in Opposition, of going from wielding genuine political power to having none. The ministers on most observers’ most-likely-to-go lists include Finance Minister Kevin Falcon, Education Minister George Abbott and Energy Minister Rich Coleman. All are veterans, all have been in cabinet a long time, and they surely must dread the idea of sitting across from a government, rather than being part of it. Falcon also has a very young family, which must be a huge factor as he weighs his political future. Rumours abound that Coleman is fishing for a seat in the federal Senate, and Abbott will have served more than 15 years as an MLA by the time the next election rolls around. Many have speculated that Falcon may leave politics for a few years, only to return down the road to lead a new free enterprise coalition party that emerges from the rubble that may be the B.C. Liberal party after the May 2013 election. If people like Falcon, Abbott and Coleman

keithbaldrey do indeed throw in the towel, it will present an interesting challenge for Premier Christy Clark. Traditionally, a premier will remove from cabinet any minister who isn’t seeking reelection. However, I don’t think she can afford to lose ministers of this stature. Falcon will most assuredly remain as finance minister to allow him to bring in the important pre-election budget. Coleman has a lot of responsibilities (including being house leader) and it’s hard to see anyone from the backbench filling his shoes, while Abbott’s steady hand is needed in cabinet. Other B.C. Liberals who may be rethinking their political futures likely include current Children and Families Minister Mary McNeil, former cabinet ministers Colin Hansen, Randy Hawes, Moira Stilwell, Kash Heed, Bill Barisoff and Murray Coell (MLA Harry Bloy has already announced he won’t be seeking reelection).

If departures of this scale do indeed occur, it may allow Clark to argue her party has changed significantly from the Gordon Campbell era, but I suspect it will be difficult for her to attract a lot of high quality replacement candidates (again, who wants to sit in Opposition?) The pending departures on the NDP side are a smaller group: Michael Sather, Dawn Black and perhaps Gary Coons and Diane Thorne. When we get an official count of those not seeking re-election, it will likely be reflective of the directions the two parties seem to be heading. One looks like it’s headed for government, the other for electoral disaster. If the polls are accurate and don’t change much, the number of B.C. Liberals leaving should be about three times that of New Democrats not seeking re-election. ••• A number of observers have wondered if the tentative agreement between the B.C. Teachers Federation and their employer could have been reached well before now. Remember, for months the BCTF had been looking for a 15 per cent wage increase, and the employer was seeking a fair number of concessions from the teachers at the negotiating table. Last December, I suggested a deal could be struck if the BCTF dropped its wage demands and the employer dumped the concessions. Well, that’s precisely what happened, and what it took to get a deal in the end. I hate to say I told you so, but…. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C. Email:

COMMUTE? traffic cams






Bicycle politics polarize and distract from debate Ideological traffic is often gridlocked in Vancouver bike lanes these days. A bike is a bike is a bike, as Gertrude Stein might be tempted to observe, but in our town, it can be a heavily laden vehicle, with panniers full of policy issues and political rancor. When I was a tubby and ferociously geeky little kid, I loved my bike, and even now, as the recent arrival of my gold Care Card suggests I am, in the kind words of one of my grandchildren, now officially old, being able to do most of my city travel on a bike is a great source of pleasure. But I remain bemused by the way the bicycle has lately become a central element in huge and passionately argued disputes about city planning, public health and global warming/climate change. Who knew in the old days that my battered old threespeed Schwinn was going to morph into a world saving technology (when viewed through the green lenses of environmental and city planning concerns) or into a malign and dangerous terror machine, ruthlessly wheeling over the hard fought freedoms of the city’s car lovers (when viewed through the lens of the bitter criticisms of bike infrastructure reforms) in our city media and coffee shop conversations over the past few years? Bikes and bike issues seem to be everywhere you look these days. The June 27 Courier, for example, features my colleague Mike Howell’s magisterial account of a proposed new public bike-share program and the attendant worries about helmet hygiene (hair nets or disposable paper caps, anyone?). Meanwhile, in a single issue of another city paper the same week, bikes figured in a prominently positioned story and a ferocious opinion column. The news story was about UBC research that warns that residential traffic circles are far more dangerous for city riders than intersections controlled by stop signs, and that the inelegantly named “sharrows,” (the narrow, painted bike lanes on busy streets) are more dangerous for riders than roads with no bike friendly infrastructure at all. The opinion piece was a fierce polemic against an apprehended evil conspiracy by “High Priests of the Green Religion” written by a senior fellow at a local free market think tank. The evil Greens and bike fanatics are apparently engaged in an effort to empty the public purse by imposing bike

letter of the week

tomsandborn sharing on the city’s already cycle-clogged streets. Soon enough, if we don’t watch out, there will be no room for our Hummers and the city will be bankrupted by bike infrastructure outlays. Everyone needs to take a deep, calming breath here. Fans of the bicycle (and I am one) need to acknowledge that while our efforts to increase bike ridership by improving city infrastructure will help reduce Vancouver’s contribution to global warming/climate change in a small but real way, (and will no doubt improve our over all health levels, too) it is essentially an ecological side show. The real action isn’t in the bike lane. Without dramatic (and in the current political situation, sadly unlikely) action at all levels of government to drive down industrial emissions fast and actively discourage private auto use, we could find ourselves in a few decades trying to enjoy our bike rides in a catastrophically altered climate system, maybe pedalling along the lovely new coastline where the harbour waves lap at the foot of Little Mountain. Bike reforms are desirable, but not quite the big enviro game changers as we sometimes like to imagine. And on the other side of the civic shouting match, the bitter anti-bike voices could usefully be lowered as well. The quality of life in our city and our civic finances are far more seriously threatened by real estate speculation, income inequality and climate change itself than by modest outlays on bike lanes and bike share programs. And if increased bike traffic slows down or even reduces the throngs of cars that fill our city streets, that will be a good thing. Bike reforms, taken alone, will neither save nor ruin the planet. Or the city. Nevertheless, they do represent good public policy and should be supported. Pass me over that bike share vehicle, a rental helmet and a paper cap, please.

According to one reader, wrongheaded policy from city hall contributes to file photo Dan Toulgoet Vancouver’s “affordability crisis.” To the editor: Re: “City hall task force targets housing ‘affordability crisis,’” June 27. If the City of Vancouver is really worried about our housing crisis, then a good first step is for the city to start living within its own budget. For well over a decade, the city has blown its budget and inflicted yearly tax increases mostly above the rate of inflation. Compared to a decade ago, average taxes are up over 50 per cent, and that doesn’t include astronomical increases in parking,

and windfall “profits” in development and licensing fees. Mayor and council are quick to throw around buzzwords like “sustainability” yet are apparently oblivious to the fact that increasing taxes at the rate of over 50 per cent every 10 years is anything but sustainable. Vancouver’s chronic out of control spending is an important contributor to the so-called “affordability crisis.” Robert Wilson, Vancouver

Courier ‘public relations piece’ lacks facts

To the editor: Re: “Student moms,” June 22. Was this a Vancouver School Board public relations piece posing as a heart-warming news story? It seems to be. Similar stories inevitably appear after government cuts or auditors report that adult- and alternative-education programs are expensive to operate, have high dropout rates and divert funds from other K-12 education programs.

Here, a teen parent, with support from her parents, graduates from an alternative program. This is a heart-warming story but includes no stats on the program’s overall success rate. What percentage of students in the program graduate each year? If the Minister of Education and auditors all state that such programs are not productive, should not reportage include longitudinal program data on the number of students who: stay in school, complete the pro-

grams, get jobs, and/or remain free from substance abuse? VSB trustees repeatedly refuse to follow fiscal recommendations made by the ministry and auditors and obfuscate the facts with selective, feel-good success stories. If public education cannot demonstrate over-all success in costly adult and alternative programs it is time to let the private sector meet the need. Joy Roberts, Vancouver

Harper discourages, inspires Canada Day patriotism

To the editor: Re: “Harper’s policies lead to boycott of Canada Day,” June 27. Like Courier columnist Fiona Hughes and her husband, I too decided to ignore Canada Day this year. My family immigrated to Canada in 1969. My parents were drawn to a country which professed to honour democratic values and universality of access (especially regarding education and health care). We were once proud of our adopted nation and would hang a large Canadian flag outside our home every July 1. For the time being, at least, that flag will fly no more. Elizabeth Seaton, Vancouver

To the editor: It seems to me that your husband has sour grapes. It’s been 40 plus years of failed social engineering by the Liberal Party of Canada that has to be corrected and I am very happy that Prime Minister Harper is sticking to his principles and going ahead with a common sense approach. I do not agree with everything that the current government is doing, but for the most part it is on the right path to correct failed policies of the past. Mr. Harper will go down as a great prime minister of Canada. A truly principled man with a vision for our great country. Fred Scullard, Abbotsford, B.C.

After 25 years on Granville Street, the Equinox Gallery is moving east of Main. The gallery at 2321 Granville and its five employees are moving to the 500 block of Great Northern Way in September. Equinox owner Andy Sylvester says the cost of business in South Granville isn’t proportional to its value and is undermining the area as a longstanding shopping destination. “We’ve been here for 25 years. [Rent has] gone up and continues to go up,” said Sylvester. “For people like me… I would prefer a big space for a gallery, it makes it impossible to function here.” While other galleries remain on Granville, Sylvester doesn’t think they will be there for long. “I think you’ll see a lot of galleries move off Granville Street if the trends continue… More established galleries, they won’t be able to stick around for much longer,” Sylvester said. South Granville BIA executive director Sharon Townsend said the cost of rent isn’t causing businesses to leave, since rent has been moderate over the last two years. “It doesn’t take much for a business to move from profitable to not. But to say that businesses are leaving because of high rent, I can’t say is accurate,” Townsend said. She said increases in property taxes are the biggest obstacle to businesses on South Granville. According to Townsend, property taxes have increased by as much as 20 per cent for some businesses after Shoppers Drug Mart moved locations last January. Industrial Revolution, a furniture store on South Granville, has seen some tough times since it opened in 1982, but has managed to stay afloat through operational changes and rebranding. Owner Alan Wil-


son said smaller businesses are leaving the area and will likely be replaced by larger chains. “We’re finding the larger corporations, predominately from the U.S. are moving in and taking that void and it’s really unfortunately taking the character and the local feel that this neighbourhood has always had. It’s eroding and it’s eroding very quickly.” Townsend agreed that small businesses are being hit hardest in the area, but said there isn’t a mass exodus and South Granville maintains a good balance of small businesses and national chains. “I never like to see anybody go, but 10 per cent turnover a year is not unusual and this is about where we’re at,” said Townsend. Wilson believes many South Granville businesses will close for good, rather than move. “A lot of them are closing their stores for good and the businesses are gone. Not everyone is going bankrupt by any means, but there has been quite a large exodus on the street,” said Wilson. “I think there’s some relocation to areas that are less costly, but it’s just a matter of time before it will catch up to them as well.” According to Sylvester, South Granville has lost its original atmosphere. “As a destination, it’s less interesting than it was. The entrepreneurs that I would be interested in having as neighbours can’t afford it,” said Sylvester. “It’s a problem. It’s a big problem.”




Monthly screenings often include director Q&As

‘Reel’ film screenings help fund charities Will McDonald Contributing writer

Four years ago, Mohamed Ehab started a film club as a way to meet other film buffs after he moved to Vancouver from Egypt. When the club grew to 700 members, he realized its potential to benefit the community. That led to his founding Reel Causes in 2010, a Vancouver-based non-profit that screens independent films once a month at the Vancity Theatre, and donates all the proceeds to local non-profits. On Sunday, July 8, Reel Causes will celebrate its support from the community with a free screening of the film The Adventures of TinTin in Stanley Park. After more than 20 events, Reel Causes claims to have raised more than $35,000 for 20 different charities that support human rights and social justice, including the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, the Canadian Red Cross and Doctors without Borders. Ehab serves as the director of Reel Causes. The organization’s monthly screenings are often followed by question and answer sessions with directors or actors from each film. In 2010, Reel Causes hosted Leymah Gbowee, who appeared in the documentary Pray the Devil Back to Hell, which chronicled women in the Second Liberian Civil War. She went on to win the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize for her work as a women’s rights activist. Meharoona Ghani began volunteering for Reel Causes in 2010. By 2011, she became a board member and took on the role of creating a strategic plan for the organization.

“My interest was there from the beginning because it was about giving back to community,” Ghani said. Ghani said the organization depends on its loyal volunteers. Both Ehab and Ghani are unpaid, making it a difficult task to keep the organization running. “The key, especially since we’re 100 per cent volunteer and we all have other jobs, is finding a way to keep us moving forwards, where we’re not losing people and getting people burned out,” Ghani said. She said Reel Causes wants to expand across Canada, but it has some expansion to do in Vancouver first. For the last few months, all of its shows have sold out in the 190-seat Vancity Theatre. There have been requests for two screenings a month, but Ghani said that with only seven volunteers and limited funding from the Vancity Credit Union, a second showing isn’t feasible yet. Ehab works full-time as a pharmacist, but makes time to support a cause he is passionate about. “We dedicate our time and effort with love because we believe in what we do. The power of film and art in raising awareness,” he said. The July 8 free screening of The Adventures of TinTin in Stanley Park is with the support of the Canadian Parents for French and the Vancity Credit Union. “It’s a way that we can give back to the public who have come out to support all our events,” said Ghani. Ghani expects the showing to have more than 200 guests. The screening will be at Ceperley Meadow next to the Second Beach outdoor swimming pool at 9 p.m.

So-called casseroles marches spread west from Quebec

Protesters vow to return despite arrests Bob Mackin Contributing writer

Protesters sympathetic to the Quebec student protest movement are vowing to return to the Vancouver Art Gallery for another noisy march on downtown streets Wednesday night after the last two such events result-

ed in arrests. More than two dozen protesters, with red squares pinned to their shirts and jackets and clanging pots and pans, marched from VAG on June 27, disrupting vehicle traffic and drawing the attention of more than 40 Vancouver Police officers. Seven people were

eventually arrested after scuffles with police, four of them charged with obstructing or assaulting a police officer. A June 22 protest on the Burrard Bridge resulted in five arrests for alleged obstructing a peace officer and mischief. “Behaviour which involves bullying, violence, threats of violence and sometimes criminal acts is always subject to limitations even when it is done under the guise of a protest,” said VPD Const. Lindsey Houghton. Elementary schoolteacher Sasha Wiley-Shaw, one of the arrested, sported a bandaged wrist and was nursing various scrapes and bruises during a news conference last Friday outside the Provincial courthouse on Main Street. Wiley-Shaw said she brought 25 copies of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms’ sections 1 and 2 with her for participants to tape to their backs. The sections protect freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. “My focus that evening was about educating the public and the people about their rights and the violations and infringements that were occurring,” Wiley-Shaw said. Wiley-Shaw said she had a brief discussion with a lawyer and may file an official complaint against police about the injuries she said she suffered. “I definitely feel like I was the victim of crime and I don’t intend to be quiet about it or to let it be swept under the carpet. That is something that I would like to do, to be totally candid right now I’m very scared of police,” she said. Houghton said WileyShaw’s actions are under


investigation and claimed the evidence “is different than what she is claiming.” The so-called casseroles marches spread westward after Premier Jean Charest’s government passed a controversial emergency law in May that requires Quebec protest organizers to give police eight hours notice. The United Nations High Commission on Human Rights said the move infringed upon the right to peaceful assembly. Houghton told The Tyee that Staff Sgt. Ken Athans had visited Montreal for training to deal with student protests, but claimed that such trips are standard across the force. The information came to light during a conversation protester Lauren Gill said she had with Athans on June 27. “This isn’t necessarily the criminalization of dissent, it’s the preliminary criminalization of dissent,” Gill said. “They’re trying to stop a movement before it gets started.” Many of the protesters were involved with the anti-corporate Occupy Vancouver camp on the VAG north plaza last Oct. 15 to Nov. 21 until the B.C. Supreme Court granted the city power to dismantle the camp and for police to enforce the land use bylaw. The Vancouver Police Department did not respond to this story before deadline.

The 22nd Annual Strathcona Yard Sale, formerly known as the Hawks Avenue Yard Sale, takes place Sunday July 8 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The name was changed to reflect the size of the event, which originated on Hawks Avenue but has now spread to streets throughout Strathcona. The sale is a long-standing neighbourhood tradition that draws buyers and sellers from across the city. It’s a great opportunity to clean out those closets, basements and garages. A $2 charge will be collected from vendors to help cover the costs of advertising. All unsold items must be removed by vendors.

In August 2010, photographer Vince Hemingson visited Africa for two back-toback photo safaris. Hemingson travelled from Botswana to South Africa getting up close and personal with elephants, zebras, antelope and lions. I’ve seen some of the photos, and even with a long lens, it looks like Hemingson got a lot closer than I might have. The portraits of a mother cheetah playing with her kitten are particularly compelling. Hemingson’s Portraits of Africa Exhibition opens July 13 at Corner Cup, 3301 West Fourth Ave., with an opening offering wine, cheese and “nibbles” from 6:30 to 10 p.m.

computers, a technology gap still exists that isolates many of us from our younger, tech-savvy grandkids,” McFadyen says. She notes that Internet and cell phone access has enabled her to connect with her family and other sources of social support more easily, “I never feel alone these days,” she adds. Recent studies demonstrate a positive relationship between an increased use of technology and happiness among elderly populations. Experts tell us that spending time online has been shown to cut the incidence of depression and enhance brain function and cognition among seniors. As well, computer-based brain fitness games for the elderly have even been shown to slow, and in some cases reverse age-related declines in perception and cognition.

There’s something about Mary… what is it? It’s the glow that learning can bring to the life of someone who once thought her days of schooling were behind her. At nearly 80 years old, Mary McFadyen has just recently discovered the wonders of texting, Twitter and Facebook—igniting a passion for technology that she never knew she had, according to

“My family can’t believe that I now read a lot of my news on Twitter, and can share photos with them on Facebook,” McFadyen said. Statistics Canada reports that Internet use typically declines radically with age — from more than 90 per cent for teenagers to less than five per cent for Canadians over the age of 70. “While more of us than ever are learning to use cell phones and

Based on a growing demand, many Canadian seniors’ residences have begun offering residents technology workshops, and companies are developing ‘senior friendly’ devices that feature large, easy to read buttons for simpler dialling and messaging, hearing aid compatibility and security functions. McFadyen reminds seniors that it’s never too late to learn something new — and she is proving it every day while texting, tweeting and emailing away.

DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS: IDENTIFYING RISK AND SEEKING TREATMENT With the warm months now here, you might be planning your summer vacation. Whether it’s a long flight to Europe, or road trip down south, seniors need to be aware of their health and the possible risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a condition that affects an estimated 45,000 Canadians each year. Commonly referred to as “Traveller’s Thrombosis,” sitting immobile for long periods of time is an important contributing factor for DVT. Deep veins can become compressed or blocked, making it difficult for the blood to travel back to the heart during long periods of immobility. The blood can become trapped in the feet or legs and blood clotting can occur. Damage to your blood vessels from surgery, injury or factors beyond your control like cancer or certain genetic disorders (which can cause blood to clot easily) can also cause clots to form in your deep veins. These clots are dangerous as they can break free and travel through the bloodstream and potentially block blood flow in the lungs.

IDENTIFYING RISK FACTORS Although some people are more prone to DVT, anyone who stays immobile for a long period of time may be at risk. Some risk factors affecting seniors that may increase risk of blood clots in the legs include: • • • • • •

Age Obesity Smoking Varicose veins Surgery Inherited blood clotting disorders • Heart failure

• Cardiovascular and/or neurological disease • Hormone replacement therapy • Injury • Previous episodes of blood clotting • Cancer or liver disease

Common symptoms of DVT, such as leg cramps are not always obvious and as a result, patients are unlikely to seek immediate medical advice. It is important to identify potential symptoms of DVT to reduce the possibility of long-term health problems. Do you have one or more of the following symptoms? • • • • • • •

Pain, swelling and redness of the legs Sharp foot pains Fever Rapid heart beat Sudden, unexplained cough or chest pain Vein feels hard Coughing up blood

Early, effective treatment of DVT is critical to avoid further complications. Anticoagulants (blood thinners) are often used to prevent potentially fatal blood clots. Most commonly, DVT treatment involves a combination of an injectable and an oral anticoagulant. Newer treatments may involve the use of a single oral anticoagulant. Fortunately, early detection of DVT can significantly increase the success of treatment. Speak to your healthcare professional about the latest treatment options that may be right for you.

Jogging our memories one page at a time According to Wikipedia, four areas of the brain are thought to be involved in the neuroanatomy of memory — those areas in which information is first encoded, then stored, and finally retrieved. And of course we have various types of memory: sensory, short-term and long-term.

Well, the doctor refuted that claim and gave me a lengthy test to see if I were really “losing it.” Her findings were that I have only a slight impairment of that valuable ability. Milliseconds or not.

Sensory memory was analyzed by an expert to show its capacity — whereby 12 items could be recalled, but only stored for a few hundred milliseconds. Which brings me to the conclusion my sister and my son were right about my questionable ability to recall things. I’d say I couldn’t possibly recall 12 items, milliseconds or full seconds.

I have a really hard time with names. I complained to my older sister who has a memory like an elephant and she said, “I keep telling you. Write everything down. If I didn’t make lists and so on, I couldn’t function.”

A good, honest, friend of mine has a habit of saying, “I told you that already,” or “This is the third time I’ve explained ‘da da da.’” After thinking about complaints from family and friends I decided to see a doctor who specializes in memory (there’s one in town), to see — am I lacking a gene or two, or is it just old age?






So I went out and bought a journal of many lined pages. The most recent notation in the journal reads thusly: Think I’ll write a short piece about memory and see if Helen (the special features editor) can use it in The Courier. My excuse: “My memory’s shot.” Jacquie Hooper is an octogenarian local writer who also paints and hikes (gently) – when she remembers to…

Vancouver likes to boast it throws “Canada’s largest birthday celebration outside of Ottawa” while Surrey, not to be outdone, lays claim to a smaller celebration it insists is “the largest Canada Day celebration in Western Canada.” Having a long-standing Canada Day tradition of our own (involving watching old episodes of Hammy the Hamster, tossing poutine on the barbecue and hoisting a few glasses of Canadian Club mixed with Canada Dry before making love to a canoe), we weren’t able to attend or weigh in on the sizes of either event. Below average crowds, however, were reported at both, and Vancouver police managed only four arrests for public intoxication. Meanwhile in our Commercial Drive neighbourhood, more people seemed to be waving Italian and Spanish flags than the Maple Leaf. There are no doubt many explanations for the smaller Canada Day turnouts. Maybe it was the weather. Could be some Lower Mainlanders were saving their patriotic fervour for the upcoming Olympics, still recovering from the Queen’s Jubilee celebration or were simply from Quebec. Possibly it was due to the sober sudden realization that the

first citizen born on Canada’s centennial, Pamela Anderson, is now 45 years old (or at least most of her is) and nobody wants to watch her running down a beach in slow motion any more. Or maybe the Courier’s Fiona Hughes touched a nerve last week when she wrote about the deep dismay many Canadians feel about some of the more sinister changes made to the country after Stephen Harper finally got handed a majority government. Her column on boycotting the holiday in protest quickly became one of our website’s most viewed stories since K&K’s last interview with Roberto Luongo’s Tender Groin, and at one point on Sunday the Twitter hashtag #DenounceHarper was trending nationwide well ahead of the cheerier #HappyCanadaDay. The country’s birthday is, after all, our party. We can cry if we want to.

We stand corrected

Last week we incorrectly identified award-winning local thespian Jay Brazeau instead of Patrick Brazeau as the Canadian senator recently involved in an online feud with reporter Jennifer Ditchburn. We’d like to apologize to readers who’ve come to


arts & entertainment

Picks of the week


expect a higher degree of journalistic rigour from K&K and, more importantly, to Jay Brazeau himself for mistaking him for a member of the Senate. The only real excuse is our deadline was fast approaching and we’d been distracted by CNN reports about the Supreme Court striking down Obamacare, details of Luongo’s imminent trade to the Toronto Panthers, online buzz about Andrew Garfield as the new Batman and news of The Province’s refusal to remove cartoonist Dan Murphy’s video spoofing Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline from its website after the spillprone energy giant allegedly threatened to pull advertising. (We may have made that last one up.) Since our childhood, we’ve been regularly seeing Jay Brazeau’s name as he seems to be contractually obliged to appear in almost every locally shot TV show or movie. More recently, he made headlines after suffering a stroke during an Arts Club performance of Hairspray and returning to the stage a few weeks later. Patrick Brazeau, on the other hand, is only really known (until now anyway) as the guy who lost a charity boxing match to Liberal MP Pierre Trudeau.

Teen angst, heavy metal and sweet moves collide in bANGER

Head-banging performer gets heavy at Dancing on the Edge Festival

Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg was a teenager during the 1980s and spent her high school years hanging out with communists and listening to lots of heavy metal. All of which has served the 39-year-old dancer well. In her acclaimed dance-theatre hybrid bANGER, Friedenberg inhabits the slouchy posture and hard rocking tendencies of a teenage social misfit named Ivan. Much head-banging ensues. First seen as an excerpt at the 2005 Dancing on the Edge Festival, where it received the People’s Choice Award, bANGER returns for the 24th edition of the contemporary dance festival, which runs July 5 to 14, before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. Friedenberg kindly locked devil horns with the Courier to discuss the art of rocking, the health benefits of head-banging and, naturally, Slayer.


What was the inspiration for bANGER?

I was going through a bit of a rough time and heavy music was helping me cope. I started listening to stuff I listened to in high school. I also saw Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey—a doc by Sam Dunn and got really inspired to investigate this massive genre.

2. Is there a difference between

bangers, rockers and heshers?

Good question. I’m not super familiar with the term hesher, it seems more of a negative term that covers everyone with long hair and rock T-shirts. Rockers seem to be people who might like “heavier” music but don’t necessarily align themselves with metal in the true sense. This is where I start to sound like the metal geek I am. A headbanger is really someone who loves heavy metal—

not hair bands or Green Day-metal! Although metal is a big category.


Growing up in ’80s I don’t recall the headbangers at school being particularly coordinated or inclined to dance. Was that your experience?

The physicality of moving to metal is a lot different than what we might think of as “coordinated,” but it actually is. It is an extremely expressive and cathartic form if you look at it from a dancer perspective. I think these kids tend to be shy in general but let loose at metal shows or on their own, which is important because everyone needs a physical outlet.

4. What was the most difficult as-

pect of transforming head-banging and heavy metal into a dance piece?

I had to spend many hours in the hunched-over, loping posture of a teenage headbanger boy, investigating how he moves and how I could translate that into dance, how I could exaggerate pedestrian movements to really express. I developed new muscles that’s for sure and a whole new way of moving that I’d never experimented with before.

5. What’s the secret to avoiding head-banging injuries?

When I first started making the piece my neck got stiff and sore, but now it feels really good to head-bang. It actually releases alpha waves in the brain and calms the system—seriously. The best thing to do is work into it slowly. Start with one song and build up to a five-band mega metal show.

6. What’s your favourite dance move that you perform?

DANCING get caught in our web…



I really like the “windmill,” which is when you spin your head around so your hair spins like a windmill. It feels so metal!

7. Do you model your moves after anyone in particular?

I studied a lot of bands (Slayer, Lamb of God, Metallica etc.) and went to a lot of concerts to just be in the vibe and watch people move. So there’s a bit of a lot of people, but metal fans might be able to pick out a few signature moves from a few of the bigger metal stars.


Who’s your favourite heavy metal band?

I’d have to say Slayer because they are just so very metal and I like their politics. It’s very fast and very loud... what can I say. But I also really like Arch Enemy—they have an amazing female lead singer.

9. Do you ever worry that flashing the devil horns has lost some of its power?

A bit, yes. People seem to use the horns a little too casually. But I also love that the sign is very close to “I love you” in sign language, which is excellent because I often feel like metal shows are a great big love-in.

10. Have you seen the movie Rock of Ages?

No not yet. I have a 10-monthold baby so I’m not getting to a lot of movies these days. Friedenberg performs bANGER at the Firehall Arts Centre, July 14. For more information, go or call 604689-0926. —Michael Kissinger

Enjoyably goofy musical sparkles with 1980s charm

Campy Xanadu kicks off theatre’s silly season, rollerskates and all Xanadu

At the Arts Club Granville Island Stage until Aug. 4 Tickets: 604-687-1644

What theatregoers call The Silly Season has definitely arrived. And it doesn’t get any goofier than Xanadu— a romantic musical comedy on rollerskates. Useless but interesting background: Xanadu was a summer palace, north of

present-day Beijing, built by Kubla Khan back in the 13th century. In 1278 the Venetian explorer Marco Polo wrote a description of the palace and in 1614 an English clergyman named Samuel Purchas published Purchas his Pilgrimage, in which he refers to Xanadu—not as a firsthand account but based on Marco Polo’s journal. It begins, “In Xanadu did Cublai Can

build a stately Pallace, encompassing 16 miles of plaine ground with a wall, wherein are fertile Meddowes, pleasant Springs, delightfull streames, and all sorts of beasts of chase and game, and in the middest thereof a sumptuous house of pleasure, which may be moved from place to place.” If that sounds familiar, you’re up on your Samuel


Taylor Coleridge whose famous late-18th-century opium-inspired poem begins, “In Xanadu did Kubla Khan/A stately pleasure dome decree.” Which goes to prove once again how writers steal not only from the best but also from the completely obscure. Xanadu, the 2007 Broadway musical, is based on the 1980 film starring Olivia Newton-John, which,

a fabulously funny Centaur (J. Cameron Barnett) that tosses its mane and paws its pretty feet. Lisa Stevens’ choreography is ’80s hilarious (with athletic Vincent Tong and rubber-jointed Barnett as absolute standouts). Rebekka Sorensen’s costumes harken back to the Broadway musical production with lots of crossyour-heart tunics and glitz. Musical director Bill Sample gets more sound out of four musicians, located on stage behind a scrim, than seems possible. Collins is everything she needs to be: blonde, pretty, good on wheels and great at delivering a song. Beatty is handsome, even better on the skates and has a strong voice. Zeilinger shows, once again, how wicked she can be; Bonnie Panych is a hoot as Melpomene’s nasty sidekick. And just try to take your eyes off Barnett who’s outrageously committed to being outrageous. Add in Stephanie Liatopoulos and Cailin Stadnyk as Clio/Kira’s other Olympian sisters and you’ve got your nine Muses. (Not the brightest bulb in the candelabra, Sonny thinks “muse” is “a little alleyway with quaint townhouses.”) It’s all colourful, tuneful, uh, danceful and silly.

in turn, borrowed from the 1947 film Down To Earth (with Rita Hayworth). And I’m betting that Down To Earth was based on something else leaving one to wonder if there is anything new under the sun. Here’s the plot: Clio (Marlie Collins), daughter of Zeus, perceives that artist Sonny Malone (Gaelen Beatty)—a mortal—is down on his luck and considering ending it all. Deciding to intervene, she disguises her immortal self by 1) wearing leg warmers 2) putting on rollerskates and 3) affecting an Australian accent. Oh, and she changes her name to Kira. And down to Venice, Calif. she goes to help out poor Sonny who, naturally, is a gorgeous hunk in cut-offs and a headband. Hey, it’s the ’80s. Here’s the hitch: by Zeus’s decree, immortals are not allowed to fall in love with mortals. Clio’s jealous sister Melpomene (Beatrice Zeilinger) puts a curse on Clio that causes her to fall head over rollerskates with Sonny whose big dream is to open a roller disco, mirror ball and all. The story gets complicated by rich guy Danny (Simon Webb) who, it seems, had a similar encounter with a Muse from Mount Olympus 40 years ago. Director Dean Paul Gibson’s flamboyant touch is everywhere from a wheeled-on Pegasus that spirits Clio/Kira away, and

Coach’s behaviour ‘shocking’ and ‘childish’ Megan Stewart

Staff writer

The behaviour of a spring league hockey coach who is facing charges in connection with the apparent deliberate tripping of a 13-year-old skater during a post-game handshake is “shocking,” “disappointing” and “childish,” according to Laura Watson, the acting executive director of Coaches B.C. “The word I use is disappointing. It’s almost shocking to see,” Watson told the Courier Tuesday morning. RCMP arrested Martin Tremblay following a June 23 incident at Doug Mitchell Arena at the University of B.C. in which an adult man appeared to intentionally trip an opposing player on ice during the post-game handshake. Tremblay was released the same day and the RCMP recommended charges. Video footage of the incident from the championship game between the Hornets and Richmond Steel posted on YouTube was seen more than two million times in six days. Tremblay was suspended by the Vancouver Minor Hockey Association, which issued his credentials. Neither the VMHA or B.C. Hockey runs the spring league, which is operated by UBC Rec. Teams arrange their coaching staff independently. The university will hold a disciplinary review. “Looking at the video, personally, I find the actions really offensive and it’s really unfortunate that [the coach] is associated with our association,” Vancouver Minor vice-president Jay Aikenhead told the Canadian Press. The video footage, shot by a supporter with the Richmond Steel, seems to show a troubling example of a coach losing his cool after a heated game. As the teams are shaking hands after a Hornet victory, a man appears to stick out his right leg and trip the player, who fell on a teammate and is reportedly getting x-rays for a suspected broken wrist. “If what we’re seeing is actually what happened—we don’t know for sure until proven— but if that’s what we’re seeing, it’s shocking that it would take place,” said Watson with Coaches B.C. “It’s childish. It’s something you might see from kids who aren’t educated or trained yet and you wouldn’t even think they would.” A coach holds enormous sway over young athletes, said Watson, and along with parents and teachers, is one of the three most influential

Gleadle makes Games

Liz Gleadle sealed her fate with a 60.13 metre javelin throw Friday afternoon in Calgary at the Canadian Track and Field Championships. Already the national woman’s record holder for her 61.15m throw earlier in the month at the Harry Jerome Track Classic, Gleadle had previously met the Olympic standard and will represent Canada at the London Summer Games. She will be the first Canadian woman to compete in javelin at the Olympics since 1988 but the 23-year-old Kitsilano graduate almost bowed out of Nationals before competition began. “I was hoping to do better here. I had an injury. I actually couldn’t walk last Tuesday. I was just devastated. I didn’t think I would be able to compete. It was really bad. I was

A minor hockey coach sparked an uproar after he appeared to deliberately trip a player on an opposing team after a game in late June and the YouTube video of the incident went viral. people in a child’s life. “It’s unfortunate that [the video] is getting as much attention as it is because it’s definitely not an example of what the rest of the 40,000 volunteer coaches we have in the province.” Coaches hold an important position of power and players emulate the example they set. Watson said Tremblay set a tone for the Hornets and, while the game included unsportsmanlike exchanges from both teams, a coach can escalate tension or compel calm. “The worst part is the impact [the apparent trip] had on the rest of his players and watching their behaviour as a result of it,” she said, citing their actions: “Throwing a water bottle at the board, clapping, challenging the fans, it wasn’t a very positive-looking environment that we saw. It wasn’t very [positive] sportsmanship.” Because it’s unprecedented, the coach’s alleged behaviour is a lesson for other sports leaders and parents. More than a clinic in what not to do, said Watson, the exchange between coach and player in this case reinforces the correct conduct. “Coaches are using it as a learning opportunity,” she said. “It’s an opportunity to say: What’s the right behaviour? What could have been

fortunate enough to be here and throw 60 metres,” she said, citing the great work of her athletic therapist. Hers was not a personal best, but the former T-bird finished first in a field of 15 athletes and beat her closest competitor by nearly five metres. Her winning throw came on her first attempt. She then fouled three of her next five throws but the initial toss was all she needed. “I don’t know what happened to the rest of my throws but hey, you only need one,” she told Courier sports columnist Jim Morris covering the national trials in Calgary. Last spring Gleadle moved to Lethbridge, Alta. to train with Larry Steinke. She said overhauling her life was worth it. “I took this year off just so I could make London. I took time

done here? Fortunately, I think most people know what’s right from wrong and we recognized things happen in the heat of the moment, which is very unfortunate, but it’s an opportunity to look at this and say: How could we have responded? It’s not an acceptable situation.” The president of B.C. Hockey could not be reached before deadline but a vice-president said the sports association trains coaches using the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Respect in Sport, which addresses a coach’s legal responsibilities and promotes sportsmanship. Coaches B.C. also trains its members using a program called Making Ethical Decisions from the National Coaching Certification Program. Watson said all coaches in B.C. take the NCCP ethical training but she said the trip left many asking: “Is this a preventable thing that happened? Is this something that we could have avoided? Whether they’re in heat of the moment or not, unfortunately things happen. The more we can educate people and give them a process to understand and take a deep breath and recognize what’s right and wrong, the better.” Twitter: @MHStewart

off school, I moved cities. I did everything I was supposed to do. I napped, I ate, I slept some more,” Gleadle said. “I trained really hard. I did everything I was told to do by my coach. I trust him completely and it’s really paid off. It’s nice to know I can have that trust in my coach and I know what he’s doing for me is best for me. I just shut my mouth, do the workout, do what he tells me to do and everything will work out.’’ She overcame freakish injuries to continue training and said her trust in Steinke is absolute. “Sometimes you need to know when to rest. It’s more about having faith about how knowledgeable your coach is, knowing that he isn’t going to give you any more or any less than what you are supposed to have and exactly what you are doing

is what you are supposed to be doing.” Gleadle is confident she has much more to give, especially when healthy. “There is a lot more left in the tank.” The injury that almost sidelined her this week was to her ankle. She felt sudden pain. “It made this click. I felt a pop in my foot and it locked up my ankle. We were indoors because it was raining,” she said. “At least I wasn’t doing something I wasn’t suppose to do. That’s the worst—if you go out and play basketball and sprain your ankle, then you feel like an idiot. I don’t feel like an idiot. It was just bad luck.’’ She said she will be ready for London. “It’s OK—push through the pain, take some Advil.’’ —Megan Stewart
