Principal hopes ‘enrolment will climb’ Cheryl Rossi

The principal of Vancouver’s new aboriginal focus mini school says 13 students were enrolled in kindergarten to Grade 3 as of Wednesday morning. “As with all things new, they start small and people watch. I’m hoping that the enrolment will climb as people begin to trust us more,” said Vonnie Hutchingson. At the beginning of August, enrolment at the school was listed at 6. Hutchingson, who’s in her third week on the job, hopes to connect with parents as soon as possible. “The focus has to be on parents, family and community and what it is that they want for their children

and to help to implement that,” she said. Hutchingson hails from the village of Skidegate in Haida Gwaii. The Haida and Tsimshian woman completed her post-secondary training at Simon Fraser University’s first external site in Prince Rupert in the early 1980s and taught both elementary and secondary school. She worked on Prince Rupert school district staff and then as a principal helped coordinate construction of a new school. “I thought we have all the bells and whistles, the physical envelope was beautiful, but we still weren’t having the kind of success that I would like to see for aboriginal students,” Hutchingson said.

City hall mobilizes inspectors in war against hoarders Cleanup costs can reach $15,000 Cheryl Rossi Staff writer If the reality TV show Hoarders ever wanted to shoot in Vancouver, it would find plenty of material. And it’s not just a problem for low-income residents of the Downtown Eastside, where health

inspectors identified a concentration of cases. “This is all over the city,” said Carli Edwards, the city’s assistant director of inspections. The city’s hoarding task force started in late 2010 and evolved in May into a “hoarding action response team” composed of a property use inspector, fire in-

spector, and two mental health workers supplied by Vancouver Coastal Health as part of an 18month trial. The city has pulled inspectors from other areas to concentrate on hoarding cases, so the team isn’t costing the city extra money. The inspectors identify risks to health and safety, set deadlines

and consequences for people who hoard while the mental health workers provide support to reduce the risks. Inspectors typically ask hoarders to remove combustibles stored against a structure, remove items that block a sprinkler and to take pest control measures within set timelines that range from 48 hours to three months, depending

on the severity of the problem. Those who don’t comply typically face a $200 fee for fire reinspection, prosecution for fines up to $2,000, or a bill for cleanup done by a contractor hired by the city. Most cleanups cost $2,000 to $5,000, but have been as high as $15,000, according to Edwards. See CITY on page 4

City hall dealt with 96 cases of hoarding last year

Continued from page 1 “We will leave people alone as long as they are not posing a risk to themselves and others... Many times, we get to a place with the cases where we tell people OK, clear pathways to the exit and clear pathways to the kitchen and get the things off the stove, and then we’re done,” Edwards said. “The goal isn’t a clean and tidy house. The goal is a safe home.” The response team is participating in a study at the University of B.C. that will evaluate the team’s effectiveness and find ways to assist landlords, neigh-

bours, friends and family to help hoarders stay safe and retain their tenancy. Sheila Woody, a professor in UBC’s department of psychology who is leading two studies on hoarding, is helping the team identify circumstances that could influence the effectiveness of their work. “For example, some people have a physical disability that makes it really hard for them to stay on top of the clutter in their house,” Woody said. “So if we keep track of who has a physical disability or a mental disability, that kind of thing, then we know better what

“THE GOAL ISN’T A CLEAN AND TIDY HOUSE. THE GOAL IS A SAFE HOME.” Carli Edwards

kind of resources are needed to support these people, but also it will just help us predict outcomes better.” The city dealt with 96 cases of hoarding last year before the response team started operating in the spring. Edwards anticipates handling more cases

this year. “We’re not really ready to take a full case load just yet,” she said. Residents can call 311 to report unsafe conditions to the city. Woody and her psychology students are accepting referrals to low-cost group treatment for hoarding over the next three weeks. Treatment will be offered on a sliding scale and the 20 sessions will be based on principles of cognitive therapy. For more information, phone the UBC psychology clinic at 604-8223005. crossi@vancourier.com Twitter: @Cheryl_Rossi

City hall’s hoarding task force evolved into a “hoardphoto Dan Toulgoet ing action response team.”

Aboriginal graduation rates lag 50 points behind non-aboriginal

Continued from page 1 So she secured a position as aboriginal coordinator and then director of aboriginal education within the Ministry of Education. The ministry gathered and published data on aboriginal students’ graduation rates during her tenure in the 1990s. “What we know from research is that if you focus on an area, that area will grow,” said Hutchingson. “The performance levels of aboriginal students has grown and they are doing better, but it seems to have plateaued.” In 2011, 32.1 per cent of ab-

original students in Vancouver achieved their Dogwood Diploma within six years of first entering Grade 8, as compared to 82.5 per cent of non-aboriginal students, according to the Vancouver School Board. Hutchingson believes a school that grounds aboriginal students in aboriginal culture at a young age could improve those rates. That’s why she left her role as a consultant to the provincial First Nations Education Steering Committee to become the new principal at Macdonald elementary and its brand new kindergarten

to Grade 3 aboriginal focus mini school on East Hastings Street near Victoria Drive. She attributes her own educational success to her robust cultural heritage. “I come from a nation that has really strong values and is grounded in their traditions, their land and their territory. I was brought up by grandparents. I was exposed to the Haida language… so that’s what grounded me,” she said. “If that grounded me, can it help to ground other children—like one of our chiefs, long gone, said—to have an honest pride in the deeds

of their ancestors?” Students at the mini school will learn about local Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh peoples first. “Then you go to the rest of B.C., but layered on top of that is the individual nations of each of the children or nations that they prefer to study,” Hutchingson said. “This school will be as inclusive as any provincial school is,” she added. The aboriginal school will be open to students of all backgrounds. Hutchingson likened it to French immersion programs. Scott Clark, the executive di-

rector of Aboriginal Life in Vancouver Enhancement Society (ALIVE), told the Courier in late July that he believes every school in the province should teach students about aboriginal history and culture to reduce ignorance and racism. Hutchingson noted teachers in B.C. can choose to use curriculum that includes aboriginal content to further basic skills, but she believes teachers should continue to have the autonomy to choose whether to use that material. crossi@vancourier.com Twitter: @Cheryl_Rossi

House calls

Safe injection fight

Relax, this won’t hurt a bit. Last month, Dr. Perry Kendall, provincial health officer (aka. B.C.’s top doc) issued a sweeping decree. All healthcare workers in B.C. must get a flu shot to protect patients from infection. Shortly thereafter, Lynda Cranston, president of the Provincial Health Services Authority, emailed the healthcare masses, noting that any “health authority staff… who choose not to be immunized will be required to wear a surgical mask during the flu season, which typically runs from the end of November to end of March.” Failure to comply with this decree, added Cranston, may result in “disciplinary measures” because the “flu vaccine is safe and effective.” The reaction was swift, led by Margaret Dhillon, executive councillor for the B.C. Nurses’ Union. “Our main concern is the compulsory nature, the mandatory nature and the punitive nature of this proposed policy,” said Dhillon, during a Courier interview last week. “We feel it’s far better

to have a voluntary program combined with excellent education and outreach.” To be clear, Dhillon is pro-flu shot. But she wants her union’s 32,000 members to retain the right of refusal where vaccinations are concerned. According to Dhillon, the old policy, which prevented non-vaccinated staff from working with certain patients, works just fine. So why the mandatory decree? And why now? According to Dhillon, Perry and friends aren’t happy with flu shot compliance rates among B.C. healthcare workers, which Dhillon estimates at roughly 50 per cent. Union officials will continue talks with provincial representatives. In the meantime, Dhillon wants more information. “We’re seeking the science behind it and what the latest research is showing,” she said, noting nurses’ concerns. “They want to make sure it is in fact safe for all circumstances.” Fair question. Exactly what is a flu shot? And is it safe? Dr. Monika Naus helps lead immunization and vaccination programs at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control. She’s pro-flu shot. And pro-mandatory flu shot for healthcare workers. During a recent phone interview, Naus described how technicians manufacture flu shots

Flu shots are now mandatory for all B.C. healthcare workers including nurses. photo Adrian Lam, Victoria Times Colonist from ordinary chicken eggs. “The eggs are inoculated with the virus strain… then the virus multiplies in the eggs and it’s harvested from the eggs.” This flu season, manufacturers will produce three separate vaccines catering to different demographics based mainly on age. The majority of participating British Columbians, including most healthcare workers, will receive either Agriflu or Vaxigrip shots. So is it safe? Dr. Naus says yes. However, according to Vaxigrip’s product monograph (basically a list of ingredients and directions) obtained by the Courier, it may cause a range of side effects including “erythema and edema… asthenia, headache and myalgia” with the possibility of “anaphylactic or acute hypersensitivity reaction.” (That’s shock,

in layman’s terms.) The monograph includes a list of unknowns, which Dhillon and her nurses may find interesting. “Guillain-Barré syndrome has been reported after influenza vaccination” but it’s “not known” if vaccination “might increase the risk” of this potentially fatal nervous system disorder. Moreover, it’s “not known” if Vaxigrip causes “fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity.” Therefore, Vaxigrip “should be given to pregnant women only if clearly needed.” Finally, Vaxigrip shots contain “thimerosal,” a preservative “associated with allergic reactions.” Allergic reactions, yes. And more controversially, also associated with autism. While no definitive thimerosal/autism link has

been established, according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a U.S. federal agency, “in July 1999, the Public Health Service agencies, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and vaccine manufacturers agreed that thimerosal should be reduced or eliminated in vaccines as a precautionary measure.” Despite these concerns, Dr. Naus stands by Vaxigrip. Mandatory, voluntary, whatever. “There have been lots of good studies demonstrating its lack of association with neurodevelopmental disorders like autism,” she said. “I think that’s been aptly debunked… there’s really no evidence that supports that thimerosal causes these kind of things.” So that’s that. The provincial powers have spoken while the nurses’ union remains steadfast. As an election year approaches, you can’t ignore the politics. The NDP is the union party. Where do they stand on the flu shot-or-else issue? Shane Simpson, MLA for Vancouver-Hastings/official NDP labour critic, could not be reached for comment on this story. But stay tuned. Things are bound to heat up when the leaves start falling, the coughing grows louder and the surgical masks appear in hospital hallways and emergency rooms all over B.C. mhasiuk@vancourier.com Twitter: @MarkHasiuk

Daily physical activity is to be provided in partnership with Action Schools! BC starting in October. The Ministry of Education initiated the StrongStart program. StrongStart began in Vancouver at two schools in 2006 and spread to 18 schools in three years. All of the centres runs in schools and most of them run from 9 a.m. to noon.

I not only heard back from the park board regarding the health of young trees across the city, but also from several more readers concerned that many of them appear to be dying from a lack of water this summer. Those residents are frustrated by what they perceive to be a lack of maintenance, including watering, by park board staff. Each year the park board puts out a call to residents to help water young street and boulevard trees during the dry summer months. Park board spokesperson Joyce Courtney says young trees are maintained and watered by parks staff for the first two years, after which it’s assumed they’ll be strong enough to survive. The trees also have mulch placed around their roots to reduce the amount of water they need. Courtney says the average mortality rate for young trees is three per cent and adds weather and disease, such as powdery mildew, play a role. I recently wrote in this column about the damage rust mites are causing to trees across the city. Courtney notes that while some trees may look like they’re on their last leg due to “drought-induced dormancy,” once our rainy weather returns (ugh), most will thrive again. Courtney says parks staff will plant 3,000 more street trees this year at a cost of $375 each. The city has approximately 140,000

WEB POLL NATION Go to www.vancourier.com to vote Are you ready for the end of summer? Last week’s poll question: Do you think the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline proposal will be approved? Yes: 65 No: 35 This is not a scientific poll.

Clark, Cummins struggle to attract credible candidates Premier Christy Clark is “re-structuring” her cabinet, but a more pressing challenge for her is finding enough credible candidates to carry her party’s tarnished banner in the next election. And she’s not the only leader facing this daunting task. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins must also find 83 people to run for his party (I’m presuming both he and MLA John van Dongen will be running next May). Both parties must run careful background checks on prospective candidates to weed out potential embarrassments. If either party finds itself unable to woo enough people to run, I wonder whether those background checks will weaken and thus allow suspect candidates to garner a nomination. It would seem Cummins and his party are particularly vulnerable to this scenario. The B.C. Liberals, for all their problems, still have a solid party infrastructure in place and the party is run by experienced hands who have been involved in three election victories. The B.C. Conservatives, on the other hand, have yet to demonstrate they possess a disciplined, seasoned process to oversee an election campaign. Cummins once expressed concern to me on a Shaw Voice of B.C. program that his party would attract the wrong kind of candidate who could prove embarrassing. As I wrote here previously, the B.C. Conservatives have to inoculate themselves from “bozo eruptions” from candidates in the middle of a campaign. They can derail any campaign momentum rather quickly. Indeed, Cummins himself has just provided the exact kind of comment I’m talking about. In an interview with the Vancouver Sun’s Jonathan Fowlie last week, Cummins compared himself to Jesus Christ no less. In talking about facing a potential challenge to his leadership, Cummins said he could find

keithbaldrey only one party board member who wanted him gone. Then, he added this gem of a quote: “I hate to use a Biblical reference but Christ had 12 apostles, and one turned him in. We share the same initials but I can’t rise from the dead and I can’t get unanimity on the board. I wouldn’t expect to be able to. He couldn’t. I can’t.” You can be sure this quote will be resurrected (sorry for the pun) by the B.C. Liberals as we draw closer to the next election. The last political leader who compared himself to Christ was none other than Bill Vander Zalm at the height of his leadership problems, and things didn’t turn out so well for him. Clark’s potential problem when it comes to candidate recruitment is a little different. While Cummins is asking people to come on board a new venture, where the expectations might not be so high, Clark is trying to convince people to jump aboard a ship that is listing badly and seems likely to go under, or at least not right itself any time soon. While her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, could woo “star” candidates such as Carole Taylor, Wally Oppal, Margaret MacDiarmid, Kash Heed and Moira Stilwell with the offer

of a cabinet post, Clark is not in a position to do that. The best she can offer, right now at least, is the chance to be a portfolio critic sitting in the Official Opposition. That’s not the most appealing offer to people who currently have good careers in the private sector. The one leader sitting in the catbird seat is, of course, the NDP’s Adrian Dix. He’s only losing a handful of MLAs from his caucus (Clark, on the other hand, will lose about 20 sitting MLAs) and his party is well along in the nomination process. The NDP has already landed a star candidate in long-time labour leader Judy Darcy, who will run in New Westminster, and has more than a dozen new candidates as well (and don’t forget the looming showdown in Vancouver-Fairview, where political heavyweights George Heyman and Geoff Meggs are vying for the nomination). The proof of the NDP’s prowess when it comes to recruiting strong candidates was in evidence last spring, when it attracted former Port Moody mayor Joe Trasolini to successfully run in a by-election. The NDP finds itself in a situation similar to the one it faced in 1991, when it was also heavily favoured to form government. Back then, it got people like Mike Farnworth, Joy MacPhail, Penny Priddy, Andrew Petter, Ujjal Dosanjh and Sue Hammell to run as first-timers, and they all became strong cabinet ministers. It’s yet another parallel to the pivotal 1991 election, which saw a long-time political dynasty almost disappear from sight. The current premier has a lot of work ahead of her to prevent the same thing happening again next May. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C. Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

opinion INTRUDER JIGGLES KNOB WITH PEDIPALPS

Rise of the killer spiders spell disaster for Earth Excerpt from A Journal of the Spider Wars. Monday, Aug. 20. I came home from work to find a goodsized wolf spider scuttling across the living room floor. He must have been an inch and a half across. I swear, these hairy-legged monsters are getting bigger every year. I squished him under a paper towel as he was trying to hide under the couch. I wonder if there are any more down there? Mental note: move couch, sweep underneath. Thursday, Aug. 23. Another big spider in living room. This one was bigger than Monday’s! He hid under the TV for a while, but came out, no doubt looking for tasty crickets to eat, and found the heel of my shoe instead. Why are all these spiders sneaking into the house this year? Is it the weather? What do they think they can find to eat in here?

REAL MISSIONARIES ARE NICE AND POLITE, AND DON’T LUNGE AT YOU, ENCIRCLE YOU IN BRISTLECOATED LIMBS. Sunday, Aug. 26. Biggest spider so far, nearly three inches across, if you stretched out his hairy legs. Squished him with a napkin. I could almost swear he made a little noise when he died. Not the crunchy noise they all make, but a sort of squeak. Like a little scream. Friday, Aug. 31. Almost called Animal Control today. I trapped this one in an empty peanut butter jar. I thought for a minute that the kids next door had let their pet tarantula loose when I saw it, just sitting on the couch. It’s at least five inches across. How does a wolf spider get this big? It’s definitely making some kind of noise in the jar. A sort of screeching, cooing noise. I’ve decided not to poke air holes in the lid. Wednesday, Sept. 5. I finally moved the couch, and along with the dust bunnies, I found a crack between the wall and the floorboards. And another one was squeezing through. I beat it to death with a claw hammer. I think it swore vengeance on

letter of the week

matthewclaxton me as it died. That must be my imagination, right? Friday, Sept. 14. In the last week, I’ve killed nine more intruder spiders (I suspect they’re scouts), despite sealing up every crack and crevice. I glanced out the window yesterday and spotted a foot-long one jiggling the doorknob with its pedipalps. It was smoking a Marlboro. Saturday, Sept. 15. They aren’t smart enough to avoid bear traps. Take that, arachnids! Sunday, Sept. 16. They are now smart enough to avoid bear traps, and also to reset them. I need to buy more gauze at the drug store. Wed., Sept. 19. The local garden spiders are now on their side as well. I opened my door to find a web reading “Your (sic) dead, buddy”. They need to work on their spelling. . Friday, Sept. 21. Two of them tried to get in by pretending to be Mormon missionaries. It wasn’t very convincing. Real missionaries are nice and polite, and don’t lunge at you, encircle you in bristle-coated limbs, and attempt to sink their chelicerae into your neck. Also, they wear ties with those white shirts. Date unknown. I may not have much more time. My flamethrower’s fuel is almost exhausted. The spiders have taken the Venezuelan oil fields, and looted Fort Knox. I move by day, but any of my fellow refugees could be a spider in disguise. I saw a man strung up for winning at poker with a pair of eights. The spiders conduct sweeps by night, wrapping humans in silk and spiriting them away to their hidden lairs. They are growing stronger, and larger, and their new political party has just formed a minority government. I fear that this could have been prevented. If only I’d swept under the couch sooner! mclaxton @langleyadvance.com

According to one reader, school board chair Patti Bacchus (above) has some explaining to do about the Lord Kitchener elementary renovation. photo Dan Toulgoet To the editor: Now that the wrapping has been removed from the old Lord Kitchener school building, the true nature of “heritage preservation” is revealed. The original old school was completely gutted, raised and moved to new foundations, and now has been re-roofed, most of the rear wall removed to provide access to the new building, new entrances have been constructed, the original windows removed and replaced with new ones custom built to match the old, the entire siding replaced with new and the

interior reconfigured and rebuilt. This, Ms. Patti Bacchus of the Vancouver School Board, assures us is a “fiscally practical” (“VSB chair explains Kitchener decision,” Letters, Nov. 25) use of scarce educational funding. I would still like to know how much this renovation has cost compared with simply expanding the size of the new construction. And how such drastic reconstruction constitutes preserving a building with “high heritage significance.” Bruce Levens, Vancouver

Christians don’t care about the environment To the editor: Re: “Church dumps Enbridge stock in pipeline protest,” Aug. 29. It’s encouraging to read that Unitarian Christians are taking a proclaimed stand against Northern Gateway insidious tarsands-oil twin-pipeline project. As one who’s spent some early years extensively consuming much

evangelical and fundamentalist Christian preaching and teaching (from the Christian radio station situated in Blaine, Wash.), it’s crystal clear to me that such theology does not at all concern itself with a healthy, pristine Earth eco-system. For, according to the Book of Revelations, Earth is to eventually (perhaps, in many believers’ minds,

sooner than later) be laid complete waste for a considerable period of time—if not permanently (depending on biblical interpretation). So, really, why the hell worry about an unhealthy state of the planet’s environment—especially when there are so many jobs to be had? Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock, B.C.

Pro-circumcision column causes foreskin flap To the editor: Re: Kudos & Kvetches, “Cut to the chase,” Aug. 29. On the topic of male circumcision, your “Kudos & Kvetches” columnist admits to being shallow, but not whether or not their genitals are muti-

lated, whether they are male or female, whether or not they have any connection to a religion promoting circumcision, or whether or not they have any financial interest in same. Korky Day, Vancouver

Co-Lab member questions city’s ‘warehouses’ strategy

Artist group homeless after campus lease expires While Great Northern Way Campus prepares for its potential future as a home for Emily Carr University of Art and Design and a digital media hub, some of the artists who work at the campus are losing their home. Vancouver Community Laboratory, or Co-Lab, had to vacate the building that’s also occupied by the Equinox gallery when its lease expired Aug. 31. The space, used by 30 sculptors, blacksmiths, metal and wood workers belonging to the non-profit Co-Lab collective, will be taken over by the Monte Clark Gallery, which will relocate from South Granville this fall. Sculptor, Vancouver Design Nerd and Co-Lab member Kim Cooper says artists, particularly industrial artists, struggle to find space in Vancouver they can af-

an email to the Courier. “This also seems a bit counterproductive to put digital media companies into warehouses when they can just as easily work in a typical office, or art galleries that can occupy less strict zoning.” Cooper said in a phone con-

versation Aug. 30 that Co-Lab is grateful to have occupied inexpensive space on the campus between Main Street and Clark Drive that allowed its membership and momentum to grow. But since the group learned five months ago its lease wouldn’t be renewed, it’s failed to find a new home and had to put its possessions into storage. Matthew Carter, president of Great Northern Way Campus Trust, agreed industrial artists have played a “extremely vibrant and valuable role” on the site. But as leases expire, the Trust that represents four partner institutions—Emily Carr, the University of B.C., Simon Fraser University and the B.C. Institute of Technology—is adjusting its tenant population to better suit its future vision for a commercial art district based on a relocated Emily Carr, a creative live-work district of residential artist studios,

Carter said the Monte Clark Gallery will “complement” the Equinox, which has attracted crowds of visitors to the campus and injected a “growing sense of vitality.” The Trust will complete a minor renovation on the future Monte Clark space and the gallery will invest its own money in aesthetic improvements with a long-term commitment to the site. Carter conceded the gallery will also pay higher rent than Co-Lab. “We enjoy our relationship with a number of the industrial artist tenants, eatART is an example, and we hope that that will continue long term,” he added.

Glacier Media bought paper in 2011

Retiring Courier publisher remembers 13 years Sandra Thomas

Staff writer

After a long career at the Vancouver Courier, there is still Hope. Sitting at her desk last Thursday on her last day as publisher of the Courier, Emily Jubb had mixed emotions. She talked about how hard it was to say goodbye to the Courier employees she considers family. But she was also looking forward to spending time again with her real family. Jubb and her husband of 33 years, David, purchased a house in Hope, east of Chilliwack, almost three years ago and since then she had divided time between Hope and Vancouver. “I miss my husband and my family,” said Jubb, who plans to travel before getting involved in her new community. Looking back at her 13 years with the Courier, Jubb said the paper’s frequent ownership changes during a turbulent time in the industry presented many challenges. “But I feel better knowing the Courier is part of Glacier [Media],” Jubb said. Glacier Media bought the Courier in November 2011 as part of an overall purchase of two daily and 20 community B.C. newspapers from ailing Postmedia Network. Jubb said despite those challenges, Courier staff rallied and she’s proud of the editorial team’s eight journalism awards this year at the annual B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Awards. Jubb said she is also proud of the sales team and administrative staff, most of whom have been at the Courier for years. “We have no turnover here, so it must be a good place to work,” said Jubb. “Well, except when we had to downsize, which was really tough.” Jubb said it was a milestone when the Courier celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2008 and the City of Vancouver declared “Vancouver Courier Day” at a ceremony at city hall. Jubb was the catalyst behind a free community block party to mark the occasion. At the same time, Jubb worked

with the City of Vancouver’s anti-graffiti task force in recruiting young artists to paint the side of the Courier building. “Since then this building has never been tagged,” said Jubb. “And I truly believe it has become a Vancouver landmark.” Jubb said some of the most rewarding work she did as publisher was supporting local non-profit groups and charities. She particularly enjoyed her work as a board member of the Kitsilano Chamber of Commerce. Prior to her departure last week, Jubb was presented with an award of appreciation from the chamber. Jubb’s replacement is Dee Dhaliwal, who is leaving the North Shore News after holding a number of positions in the past 17 years, most recently as

Jubb is confident she’s leaving the Courier in good hands. “So the only advice I have for Dee is just love everyone like I have and you’ll become part of the family,” said Jubb. Dhaliwal said she will also miss Jubb. “Emily has touched a lot of people,” she said. “But it’s not just her words. Emily also led by example. But more important, Emily is my friend.” Dhaliwal said on the top of her todo list is getting to know Vancouver’s unique neighbourhoods and communities. “I’m excited and anxious to live up to this amazing brand,” said Dhaliwal. “It was a privilege to be asked to lead the Courier. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: @sthomas10

Community Calendar with Sandra Thomas

West End

The annual Davie Day celebration has expanded this year to become a fullfledged festival Sept. 8 including, wait for it, the Urban Rec Dodgeball Tournament. The six “cage match” courts will be set up in the middle of Davie Street between Cardero and Nicola for a round robin of dodgeball the organizers promise will be unlike anything seen before. The tournament runs between 1 to 4 p.m. and the cost of entry per team is $140 plus HST. If dodgeball isn’t your thing, there’s lots more on tap during the day-long event, including the Heritage Walking Tour of the Mole Hill housing development and the Burrard Stage show emceed by drag royalty Joan-E, who will also perform. Other performers taking to the stage include

Really Rod, Deep Seated, Dating Myself, Matthew Presidente, The QLUTCH Project and DJ Zak Santiago. The Denman Stage will be emceed by Ryan Steele and will showcase DJ performances by Ronnie Mejia, Nina Mendoza, Michael Fraser and MY!GAY!HUSBAND! There’s also lots for families to do during West End Fest, which runs from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, between Burrard and Denman streets. For a complete schedule visit westendbia.com.

Kerrisdale

I have no idea why Kerrisdale became this city’s hot spot for roller derby, but roller derby central it is. The Terminal City Rollergirls 2012 season is almost over, but fans of the sport need not worry because the best is yet to come. The tightest season in league history is coming to a close with a bang, and a few stitches, as all four house teams battle one last time for roller derby supremacy. Roller derby fans will gather at the Kerrisdale Arena, 5670 East Blvd. at Sept. 8 at 5 p.m. for the 6 p.m. start for epic battles

between the Faster Pussycats, Bad Reputations, Public Frenemy and Riot Girls. The Terminal City Rollergirls is using the event to raise funds for the Take a Hike Foundation, which supports at-risk and under privileged youth by selling trees for $10, which will be planted in October as part of the Trees 4 Teens campaign. For more information and tickets visit terminalcityrollergirls.com.

Kerrisdale

Roller derby isn’t the only happening event taking place in Kerrisdale this month. The Kerrisdale Commu-

nity Choir is looking for new members and is inviting those who can carry a tune, and those who can’t, to join the fun beginning Sept. 13 at 9:30 a.m. at the Kerrisdale Community Centre, 5851 West Blvd. The choir entertains across Metro Vancouver with Broadway tunes and hits from the 1920s to today.

On Wednesday I wrote about the Fifth Annual Accordion Noir Festival, which takes place Sept. 13-16. I mentioned events would be taking place at the Grandview Legion, upstairs at

2205 Commercial Dr., but as it turns out there are other venues involved as well. For a complete list of events visit facebook.com/AccordionNoirFestival.

A special tour of historic Avalon Dairy takes place Sept. 18 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Join Heritage Vancouver president Donald Luxton for a tour of the Avalon Dairy site prior to its redevelopment. This is a final opportunity to explore the last remnant of what was one of the longest-running and last working farms in Vancouver, dat-

ing from a time when South Vancouver was primarily an agricultural area. Following the tour, participants are invited to mingle, share stories, and enjoy food and non-alcoholic beverages at the historic Avalon Dairy. The tour begins at the Avalon Farmhouse, 5805 Wales Street—at 43rd Avenue. Tickets are $25 and include the reception with food and non-alcoholic beverages.

community briefs Karaoke concerns

One of Vancouver’s most popular karaoke restaurants needs a new home. Fantacity Restaurant, formerly located beneath the soon-to-be-demolished parking lot at the corner of Thurlow and Alberni, is planning to relocate around the corner at 1133 Robson Street. Before giving its blessing, however, the provincial Liquor Control and Licensing Branch wants to hear from residents or business owners

within on 0.8-kilometre radius of the new location (above the Below the Belt clothing store) who might have concerns about “patron participation entertainment” allowed in the new spot. Anyone with strong opinions about people belting out songs at an establishment with a food primary license are asked to send letters via snail mail before Sept. 28 to The General Manager, Liquor Control and Licensing

Branch, PO Box 9292 Stn Prov Govt, Victoria B.C., V8W-9J8. Names and addresses must be included for consideration.

Falling fundraiser

The annual Easter Seals Drop Zone event, where money is raised for B.C. children with disabilities by rappelling down an office tower, goes down next Tuesday (Sept. 11) and the lofty event it still looking for more participants. Anyone who raises a

minimum of $1000 earns the right to rappel down the side of the 20-storey AXA Place building (999 West Hastings St.) in Coal Harbour. Everyone who raises at least $1500 will be entered into a draw to win a trip for 2 anywhere WestJet flies and the top 10 fundraisers will receive an exclusive personalized video of their Drop Zone experience. Money raised benefits Easter Seals houses in Vancouver, Prince George

and Victoria as well as summer camps for children with disabilities in Shawnigan, Winfield and Squamish. To register or to sponsor someone, visit thedropzone.ca.

Gay old folks home

A local social worker wants to look into creating a retirement home for elderly lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Vancouver residents. Alex Sangha is seeking initial seed funding of $25,000 to hire a consultant to do a needs assessment and feasibility study of the project, called Dignity House, and tax deductible receipts will be available through a partnership with the Progressive Intercultural Community Services Society. There are currently no specific independent affordable housing programs for LGBT seniors in the city, and the demographic has its own special needs. They often have higher rates of depression, substance abuse, and suicide, and tend to be more socially isolated because they often don’t have children. Sangha say high Vancouver rents, particularly ®

in the West End where the gay community is centered, makes life extra tough for LBGT seniors. Anyone interested in finding out more can call 604-842-7340, email alexsangha@gmail.com or join the Dignity House Facebook page.

Success for Chair

Maggie Ip was once again re-elected as chair of the SUCCESS Foundation and Sing Lim Yeo was elected as the vice chair at its annual general meeting last Thursday (Aug. 30). “I am very pleased to continue to serve at the Foundation,” said Ip in a prepared statement. “2013 will be the 40th anniversary of the founding of SUCCESS. We will organize a number of events to celebrate this milestone.” Ip was the founding chair of the board, a nonprofit that helps provide successful settlement and health services, job skills development, and counselling for immigrants and new Canadians, back in 1973. The board also welcomes three new members: Peter Fu, Jennifer Hsu and Bill C. Lau.

‘Great’ grandparents

GIVE YOUR GRANDCHILDREN THE GIFT OF AN EDUCATION They say it’s more fun being a grandparent than a parent because you can spoil the kids and then send them home. Birthdays are particularly exciting, with many grandparents showering gifts on their grateful grandkids. In fact, a BMO Financial Group study revealed that more than 70 per cent of Canadians give their grandchildren, godchildren, nephews and nieces an average of $100 in monetary gifts annually. With the cost of a four-year university degree costing upwards of $60,000, grandparents can help by earmarking some of those cash gifts for postsecondary education. One of the most sensible vehicles is a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP), which

works best when opened as soon as that cute grandchild is born. Small chunks add up, with government grants and compounding returns adding significantly to total savings.

The federal government offers a Canadian Education Savings Grant of 20 per cent, up to a maximum of $500 annually, on all RESP contributions. An annual RESP contribution of $2,500 results in the maximum grant.

And a long, wonderful journey it can be. That’s why a smart and sustainable financial plan for those journey years is not only important, it’s imperative. At Rogers Group Financial, we will tailor a retirement strategy specifically to your unique financial means and goals. And together we can ensure that each and every day of your retirement is as fulfilling and worry free as the one before.

R

E

S

BMO offers these tips for grandparents: • Start early - Ask for the baby’s Social Insurance Number and open an RESP to get a head start on savings. • Up the anté - If the child already has an RESP, gift the money to the parent or open a separate RESP. • Think beyond cash - Including investments such as mutual funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs) and guaranteed investment certificates (GICs) in your RESP can maximize the potential for growth. For more information on RESPs, visit BMO or any registered financial institution.

”The grant is what sets RESPs apart. A grant is like free money, or you can also think of it as an immediate 20 per

P

cent return on your RESP contribution,” said Robert Armstrong, Vice President, Managed Solutions and Registered Plans Strategy, BMO Investments Inc.

Everyone wants a simple Will.

Fully Serviced Independent Lifestyle Affordable prices Experience the warmth of our welcome by visiting us

to be her power of attorney and is really – really – helpful. Mrs. Jones and her friend have a small business selling wool and giving knitting lessons, but she isn’t sure whether they have a company or not…

The dictionary defines “simple” as: “easily understood or done; presenting no difficulty.” I have come up with my own adage: “There is no such thing as a simple Will.”

The hard part is trying to explain to Mrs. Jones that nothing about her Will is “simple.” Her older son is still a minor and therefore not the choice for executor. Her husband may have a gambling problem and therefore leaving everything to him may jeopardize what may be left for her sons.

Though the seniors who read this may have a Will already in place, it is also a good idea to revisit it from time to time when circumstances change. Here is an example why, and it goes like this…

Nothing is simple about this request from my end of the phone – “don’t have a lot, but has a financial advisor - has a half-sister – little time to complete a Will - adventure holiday…”

AN EXPERT TACKLES THE MYTH OF THE SIMPLE WILL

Around mid-day on a Tuesday, Mrs. Jones calls: “Hello, Ms. Cameron, I would like to make a simple Will. I don’t have a lot, but my financial advisor and my half-sister tell me I should have one. I am leaving town Thursday morning. I probably should have called you sooner. I am excited to be going to Kenya on safari – my dream coming true, at age 60!”

No such thing

All of this is spinning in my head before I have even responded to the salutation!

As I delve further into the conversation, I discover that Mrs. Jones is married with two sons, of whom she is very proud. Her eldest son is 17 and is very responsible and, she thinks, would make a great executor. He runs the household because her husband spends all his time at the Track, ostensibly betting on the sure thing. There is hope that her challenged 14 year old son will one day reach the mental age of seven or eight, and he is progressing very well. She has a sister whom she despises, but she likes her half-sister who wants

Right off the bat I know that a trust fund should be established for her younger son, that will provide for him in a special way, given that he has disabilities. And she may have obligations to her friend with respect to their business on her death. All of these issues need to be addressed. It can and should be done, but quite simply - it is not simple!

HOOPER’S CORNER BY JACQUIE HOOPER CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The ‘joys’ of aging Last time I talked to you I was ranting about memory loss. This time it’s about another failing of the elderly, falling down.

LOVE life. LIVE here.® Come and discover the fresh, new spaces at Amica at Arbutus Manor. Beautifully redesigned to give you the luxury of a first class hotel combined with services and programs that enhance your active independent lifestyle.

On July 16th, perfectly innocently, I tripped on the living-room carpet. Down I went, and broke my left wrist (I’m left-handed.) So there I was, fortunately in reach of my phone, where I dialed 911 to summon an ambulance. With the help of my splendid apartment block manager and paramedics, I climbed onto a stretcher. Off we went to Vancouver General’s Emergency, where an efficient M.D. pulled my arm into its original contour (ouch, but with some freezing) and applied a hand-to-elbow cast. I guess I was given some painkillers and a sedative, because next thing I knew I was in Ward 7 AB in the Jimmy Pattison Pavilion with all the other careless limbbreakers (mostly hips, it turns out.) This would not have been a very traumatic experience but for the problem that I fell on my right hand while hiking some years ago and put it mostly out of commission. Look ma, no hands. I had a fine time in V.G.H. – with meals much better than the ones I concoct at home, caring nurses to tend to my awkwardness and kind friends who visited.

Then came the moment I was to give my sub-acute-care bed to someone more deserving. A hospital transfer van took me (on a stretcher again) to a familiar location in Kitsilano – the Bradden Rehabilitation Hospital, where I had spent weeks recovering from kneereplacement surgery a few years ago. I still keep in touch with a broken femur buddy from that time – Cleo Allan – who came to visit this time. And I reconnected with the excellent staff (good old Angelu) and enjoyed meals even better than V.G.H. A friend walked me down to Kits Beach on a few occasions to enjoy that incredible summer sun, and envy the intact population thereabouts. Then, on an auspicious Wednesday evening, August 15th, my son drove me to his home in far-off Burnaby, to sit and stew over my cast ‘til September. My recommendation? If you’re over 80, get rid of your carpeting! And wear practical, rubber-bottomed shoes with adequate tread.

flannel-clad angst coming out of Seattle at the time, but the L.A. band was a breath of fresh air. Their glam-rock inspired power pop, sugary harmonies courtesy of brothers Steve and Jeff McDonald and trashy goofiness reminded us that rock and roll could be fun.

K&K said goodbye to the last vestiges of summer this past long weekend in the most painful, selfflagellating way we knew how—by riding our bikes around Stanley Park in the middle of the day. Normally when we want to punish ourselves while at the same time curse humanity’s shortcomings, we’ll head to Ikea, try to find a brunch spot at 11 a.m. or drive across the Port Mann Bridge. But for some perverse reason we thought we’d try our luck with a relaxing ride along the seawall Sunday. How bad could it be? After all, we’ve always found long weekends in Vancouver calmer and quieter due to the mass exodus of residents trying to get in one last holiday. Of course, what we didn’t consider was the mass exodus of residents from other cities visiting Vancouver and, it would appear, attempting to ride a bike for the first time in their uncoordinated, doe-eyed lives. Don’t get us wrong. We are by no means biking snobs or aficionados. We’ve never experienced the pure, back-to-the-land joys of a fixed gear bike, and until last year we thought a pannier was a type of French bread. And we fully understand that Stanley Park is considered “the jewel” of Vancouver and

thus a tourist hotbed. But we can’t for the life of us understand how so many people can be so bad at such seemingly simple tasks as: riding a bike faster than one kilometre an hour, riding a bike in a single file as opposed to four wide (thus blocking the entire path), riding a bike in a straight and predictable line, riding a bike for more than 10 feet without stopping in the middle of the lane, and, finally, looking both ways before walking in front of oncoming bike traffic with your family who prefers to stare at the ground rather than the natural surroundings or accelerating metal objects. The scary thing is that it’s only going to get worse if the city implements its proposed bike sharing program, which will give thousands of novice cyclists and tourists easier access to tools of two-wheeled mayhem. On the bright side, by the time that happens, we should be able to afford that Segway we’ve been saving up for.

What’s the big idea?

According to an article in the Vancouver Sun on Tuesday, “the B.C. education ministry is planning a major overhaul of the K-12 curriculum

4

to focus less on facts and more on big ideas.” K&K didn’t bother reading the rest of the article because we also prefer big ideas over annoying things like facts. After all, as Martin Luther King Jr. or some another important person in history we can’t remember once said, intelligence plus character, that is the goal of… blah blah blah… you get the picture. With such sweeping and controversial changes to the education system, the ministry of education did what any big government machine would do to get the word out to the public: it posted a “discussion paper” online late Friday before the long weekend, followed by a “tweet.” Man, talk about overkill. As an added bonus, the changes come with no input from teachers. Although the B.C. Teachers Federation was invited to participate in a curriculum and assessment advisory group created by the ministry, they declined on account of last year’s job action. Meaning the very people who are supposed to implement these fairly significant changes to the way students are taught are just learning about them now. But, you know, why worry about silly things like facts.

Role in locally shot Connie and Carla opened doors for actor-turned-editor

Coffee table book is one big D.R.A.G. Sandra Thomas Staff writer

They’re wild, fabulous and some are so incredibly beautiful it’s enough to make a grown woman green with envy. Some also sport names like Miss Barbie-Q, Hedda Lettuce, De De Deville and Disco Dollie and are featured in a new coffee table book on shelves now, dedicated to some of the best drag performers in the world. D.R.A.G. was compiled and edited by Vancouver actor Christopher Logan, who in the past had been known to don the odd frock or two. The large book is filled front to back with glossy professional photos of drag performers, some of whom have taken the word “camp” to a whole new level, while others are pure glamour and look eerily like the stars they’re impersonating such as Cher, Tina Turner and Bette Middler. Logan got the idea for D.R.A.G. while brainstorming ideas for ways to fund an independent film he’s written about the genre and in which he’ll eventually star. “The book is a means to an end,” said Logan, who can be seen in drag in the 2004 comedy Connie and Carla, a movie shot in Vancouver depicting two women (Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette) who go undercover in the drag scene of Los Angeles while hiding from mobsters. “I had this ambitious plan to do five books in one year, including one on female athletes and another about Vancouver musicians, but this one is keeping me busy.” Logan said it was Connie and Carla that lent him some credibility while approaching drag royalty about participating in his project. One of the first performers he contacted was Las Vegas-based Larry Edwards, who Logan credits with opening many doors in his quest to approach perfect strangers about allowing their images to be used in the book. “Larry liked the idea so much he started calling all of the Las Vegas performers,” said Logan. “And none of them said no. Some of them even said, ‘I loved you in Connie and

“I HAD THIS AMBITIOUS PLAN TO DO FIVE BOOKS IN ONE YEAR, INCLUDING ONE ON FEMALE ATHLETES AND ANOTHER ABOUT VANCOUVER MUSICIANS, BUT THIS ONE IS KEEPING ME BUSY.” Christopher Logan

Christopher Logan’s new coffee table book D.R.A.G. pays tribute to some of the world’s best drag performers. Carla.’ I thought, ‘They actually know who I am.’ That was pretty exciting.” Some of the drag icons who appear in the book include Frank Marino, Eddie Edwards, Jimmy James and Jim Bailey, who closes the book. Nina Flowers, who placed second in the reality TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race, also makes an appearance. Vancouver drag performers featured in the book include Raye Sunshine, Guy Lebrecque, Vegas Van Cartier, Jaylene Tyme

and Cotton, who has since moved to Toronto. Vancouver designer Mamio Marias helped assemble the book. Once Logan had the performers lined up, the next step was getting permission from photographers to use their images. Logan said not only were the photographers more than happy to oblige, they also offered up never before seen photographs. “And because it was their work going into the book, they were very particular about the

quality of their photographs,” said Logan. He added that an unexpected sidebar to the book are the photos fans are posting to his Facebook page showing them posed with their copy of D.R.A.G. Logan wasn’t immune to the trend and has posted some of his own photos, including one where he can be seen posing alongside someone dressed as a giant pickle. Some of the featured photographers also took the time to pose with the book open to their spread of photos. Logan had a goal to raise the $2 million needed for his film in two years, but the response from the drag community and readers has been so overwhelming he’s about six months ahead of schedule. Logan describes the film as “narrative fiction,” which explores the drag scene in various lights, including the fact some use the genre as an escape. “Some performers use the makeup as a mask to hide behind,” said Logan. “And it often takes place in a dimly lit room with bad sound. Sometimes it doesn’t get presented in the right light, so that’s what I want to do.” D.R.A.G. is for sale online at Amazon. com, at select Chapters stores and at Priape boutique and Little Sister’s book store, both located on Davie Street. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: @sthomas10

Andy Warhol Drawings

Chronicle Books, 79 pages, $19.95

Before he was the darling of the New York art scene, Andy Warhol was a successful commercial illustrator. Within those illustrations and many of these early drawings are elements that became more defined in his later work. The repetition of patterns, blotchy black outlines and the coloured washes seen here evolved into his signature style. In this collection of his early work, gorgeous fashion illustrations are mixed in with whimsical animal figures. Warhol’s diversity is presented through the selected drawings while showing the connection to his later approach through his colour choices and flat drawing style. Shoes and cats appear throughout the book much as they continued to be part of Warhol’s art later on.

Interspersed through the art are quotations that offer more insight into his approach and provide a great counterbalance to the drawings. —Terry Peters

New York Drawings By Adrian Tomine

Drawn & Quarterly, 175 pages, $20.95

A sideways glance, a hint of longing, a

feeling of sadness, these are common elements in the drawings of Adrian Tomine. Underlying messages rise up as you study his work and you see the connections between the characters. His illustrations have appeared in The New Yorker magazine since 2004. From that collection of work, Tomine has presented this look at New York, the city he left California for. His clean style with its soft colour scheme pulls you into each image. You can see his message right away as you are presented with his illustration and the accompanying story. As you spend more time viewing the work, the subtleties of expression and interplay between the characters becomes stronger. Tomine provides notes at the end of the book about each drawing and what he was assigned to illustrate. He makes further comments on his motivations, which makes you want to go. —TS tpeters@nsnews.com

McCullough named Northwest League manager of the year as C’s begin playoffs

C’s manager measures maturity over numbers

Megan Stewart Staff writer

On a warm, blue-sky Monday afternoon at Nat Bailey Stadium, the Vancouver Canadians edged the Everett AquaSox 1-0 to take a one game lead in the best-ofthree West Division series of the single-A Northwest League. Mexican standout Roberto Osuna struck out six batters in three innings and four relievers combined for the one-hit, no-run win. “First of all, they were aggressive,” Vancouver manager Clayton McCullough said about the pitchers who faced elimination down the stretch as the C’s maintained the slightest of advantages. “The moment didn’t phase them any, which I think has to do with the games we’ve been playing the last month. We’ve had our backs somewhat against the wall the whole time, trying to fight to get into this thing. They’ve been pitching in pressure situations for the majority of the year. All the experience they’ve gained this summer has played big dividends today because they weren’t phased by the moment and they executed

pitches.” When the developing ballplayers—most of them far from their own families in a foreign city where some don’t speak the language—keep their cool in front of 4,698 hometown fans at Scotiabank Field, McCullough recognizes the success of more than just a playoff win. “You look at what the kid is like when they first get here at the beginning of the year or, for some kids, in the middle of the year. You hope that, at this point in the year, they’re much better players,” he said. Better, more mature players who are learning to handle pressure, avoid distractions and approach baseball like the profession it is and understand a shortseason single-A club can be an important beginning to a career with the affiliate MLB club in Toronto. “We’re trying to give them a good foundation to work from so they can build their skills, build their professionalism. Right now it’s getting them to play the way the Blue Jays want and learn how to be an adult,” he said. The youngest Canadians player is Osuna. He’s 17. The oldest, Jonathan Lucas, turns 25 in De-

cember. “The mature kid, the kid who can handle himself away from the field and also understand that when he comes here it’s about taking care of business at the field, those kids, they develop quicker but for some it takes longer,” said McCullough. “But that’s all part of it here. Luckily we do have a pretty mature group: they like to play, they want to play. That’s a big battle we face here, just getting those kids to learn that they have to show up every day and learn how to do that on a daily basis.” At the end of August, McCullough was named NWL manager of the year. A member of Toronto Blue Jays organization since 2007, last year he was named the best manager of the Florida State League in his second campaign with Dunedin single-A ball club. Born in North Carolina, McCullough, 32, was drafted to the Seattle Mariners in 1998. His father, Howard, is a longtime scout with the Arizona Diamondbacks. McCullough was a catcher for the Pirates at East Carolina University where he studied communications and was then drafted by the

As a rookie with the Burlington Indians, now the Royals and no longer affiliated with Cleveland, McCullough batted .278 with three doubles and eight RBI. In three seasons, he moved up and down the Indians organization but didn’t suit up for a major league game.

The Canadians club, said McCullough, is the best he’s worked with thanks to involved owners and good leadership. Plus, he said, on-field decisions are made easier by pitching coach Jim Czajkowski and batting coach Dave Pano. “Those guys put in the work as well as the players,” said McCullough. “The individual players have got-
