TREES IN PERIL

Courier community correspondent Terry Clark says the city needs new heroes to protect the wondrous canopy of trees on private property as they are felled to build bigger homes. SEE HER COLUMN PAGE 15.

regory Henriquez recalls riding his metallic green banana bike around Oakridge mall in the late 1960s and early ’70s. He grew up a half block away in a rented duplex with his family. A parking lot surrounded the mall, as it does now. “These [types of] malls developed in the 1950s and ’60s were all based upon cars and everyone driving everywhere,” Henriquez said. “The key paradigm shift in the years since then is an understanding of our global environmental crisis and a shift in terms of the way in which people move around cities.” Henriquez is managing partner at Henriquez Partners Architects, which is redesigning Oakridge Centre — and the firm behind the design of other high-profile developments including Woodward’s and Telus Garden projects. Henriquez Partners Architects applied to the city Oct. 15 on behalf of Oakridge Centre owner Ivanoe Cambridge and Westbank Development to amend the zoning for Oakridge Centre to allow for a mixed-use development, including buildings of varying heights up to 45 storeys with commercial, office, residential and public amenity space. The proposal faces public scrutiny next week at two open houses on Nov. 15 and 17. Plans for the 28-acre site include 2,818 units with a maximum height of 125.6 metres. “To take something which is existing as a parking lot, which is sort of a suburban concept, and turn it into a real urban mixed-use, inclusive city is really the concept,” Henriquez said. He called the Canada Line a “game changer” in terms of what development is possible and how people live, work, and travel. It could handle increased use, according to Henriquez, because it’s underutilized. He cited current ridership statistics of about 126,000 trips per day, a figure that peaked at 200,000 during the Olympics. The Canada Line’s capacity with the trains it has is 300,000, he said. “What we’re trying to do is develop a really inclusive city, which is mixed use and has all the attributes of a real city, which would be things like affordable housing, regular market housing, an enlarged retail component, which is alive day and night, office space, community space like a daycare and a community centre, a library and seniors centre and large public open spaces,” Henriquez said. The scheme proposes residential buildings ranging from six floors to 45 floors — the majority in the range of 18 to 20 stories. When asked how he expects neighbours will react to highrises, Henriquez pointed to benefits increased density brings such as more affordable housing, a community centre and park space.

LongtimeMusqueamchiefsteppingdown

ERNIE CAMPBELL ENDS 14-YEAR REIGN AS LEADER OF CITY’S ONLY INHABITED RESERVE MIKE HOWELL

Staff writer

T

he longtime chief of the Musqueam Indian Band will not seek another term in office, ending a 14-year reign as leader of the city’s only First Nation with an inhabited reserve. Ernest Campbell withdrew his name two weeks ago from the ballot for chief and council that will go before more than 600 eligible Musqueam voters Dec. 3. The band has a total population of about 1,300 members. The Courier left several messages for Campbell Monday at the band office, his home and on his cellphone but none was returned before deadline. The chief’s decision not to seek re-election has set off a five-way race for his job. Candidates include band council members Nolan Charles, Wade Grant and Wayne Sparrow. The others are Gail Sparrow and Chrystal Sparrow. All five candidates are related, with Gail Sparrow the most high profile of the bunch, having served as chief for a term in the late 1990s. Sparrow was also the Liberal candidate for Vancouver-Mount Pleasant in the 2001 provincial election, losing to NDP MLA Jenny Kwan. In 2002, she unsuccessfully sought an NPA nomination for city council. Grant is the band’s economic development administration coor-

Wayne Sparrow has been involved in the band’s fishing and housing issues. Charles once led a campaign to get a casino built on the band’s land near the Vancouver International Airport and Chrystal Sparrow is a young artist. A total of 48 people are running for the 10 council seats. Under the

Department of Indian Affairs’ electoral system, candidates running for chief can also be elected to a council seat. Terms are two years. Campbell was elected chief in December 1998 and began serving his community in 1999. He was leader during several high-profile events, including the band’s recent land dispute with a private landowner in Marpole. The controversy arose after archaeologists discovered intact

human remains of two adults and two infants on the Southwest Marine Drive land slated for a condominium development. The Musqueam believe the remains are those of their ancestors, since the area is a well-documented heritage site and former band village. “It would be a catastrophe to the Musqueam and to all British Columbians and Canadians to have this important, world-class site

further destroyed,” Campbell said in an April 18 letter to Premier Christy Clark and Mayor Gregor Robertson. The provincial government has since cancelled the development permits. The band wants to purchase the land and turn it into an interpretive park. Landowners Gary and Fran Hackett and developer Century Group HQ Developments Ltd. have yet to work out a deal with the Musqueam. Campbell was at the helm in 2008 when the B.C. government finalized a landmark deal with Musqueam involving the transfer of a number of small parcels of land back to the band. The parcels included the UBC Golf Course lands, property near Sea Island Way in Richmond and two parcels of land from Pacific Spirit Regional Park. As part of the agreement, the golf course must remain a golf course until 2083, and parts of the course and the park will be made park land. The deal also included $20.3 million the province was to pay the band. In return, the Musqueam agreed to drop three outstanding lawsuits. The Musqueam’s reserve is located in the southwest corner of the city and runs to the Fraser River. It is semi-self governed with an agreement with the City of Vancouver to provide services such as garbage pickup and policing. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

Open houses for‘very large project’ set for Nov. 15 and 17 CONTINUED from page 1

Artist rendering courtesy of Henriquez Partners Architects

The City of Vancouver will hold “enhanced consultation” regarding the Oakridge redevelopment plan.

Matt Shillito, the City of Vancouver’s assistant director of planning, said “enhanced consultation” is planned due to the project’s scale and strategic significance. Along with open houses, there will be workshops and online opportunities for feedback. “It is a very large project,” Shillito said. “It’s on a 28-acre site, which in itself it’s very unusual to have a site like that, of that size, in a single ownership. And certainly the scale of the proposal is large as well, reflecting the size of the site and also its location on a major transit station on a transit line. So it’s a really big rezoning — the total square footage is 4.4 million square feet. They

will be a landmark in the area and that’s obviously something we have to work through.” Issues raised at open houses last spring before the application was filed included concerns about traffic, how it fits with the neighbourhood, what public amenities would be provided, and transit capacity. It will take at least 14 months before the development goes to public hearing. City staff expect to report to council part way through to get some direction. The open houses are Nov. 15 from 5 to 8 p.m. and Nov. 17 from 10 to 4 p.m. — both at Oakridge Centre auditorium at 650 West 41st Ave. Cantonese and Mandarin translation will be available. noconnor@vancourier.com Twitter: @Naoibh

nybody got a 1979 Cadillac convertible for sale? Vision Vancouver Coun. Kerry Jang is interested. But wait a sec, you say, isn’t Jang a member of the ruling party at city hall that some pundits and others have accused of launching “a war on the car” with the introduction of the 2040 transportation plan. Well, yes. And doesn’t the city’s 2040 transportation plan, which was adopted by Jang and his bike-friendly buddies Oct. 31, call for at least two-thirds of all trips in the city to be by foot, bike or transit by 2040? Yes, again. So why the heck would Jang be interested in a gas-sucking land yacht? Some background first: Jang has made it no secret that he loves cars and he’s not somebody you would see along a bike path wearing spandex and one of those neon jackets; he’s sticking to dark pin-striped suits, as far as I can tell. His automobile addiction, it appears, will continue after he heard some car-friendly news about the 2040 plan from the city’s transportation director, Jerry Dobrovolny, who actually

Kerry Jang wants to hear from you. can be found along a bike path. “The plan emphasizes that having a road network that’s efficient, effective and not congested is absolutely crucial to the well-being of the city in the future — both from a car perspective, from a goods movement perspective and from a bus-transit perspective,” Dobrovolny told Jang at council. What Jang took from this was that he was “quite satisfied there is no war on the car. I was always concerned about that and it’s clear from all the questions I’ve asked in talking to the staff that there is no war on cars. So let’s get

that straight.” Besides, he said, he’s not all about the car, anyway. He’s actually discovered other ways to get around the city. Would you believe… walking? Or even more amazing… taking transit? What the… “It’s actually great to walk. Didn’t know that. I’ve actually started taking transit. It’s actually very convenient. It saves me a lot of time and money, actually.” But let’s get Jang back on the road, shall we, and hear why he’s really stoked about the 2040 plan. “I’m also very happy to say that because of the road space that is available and will be in

In other transportation news… Jang’s colleague, Coun. Tim Stevenson, let it be known at the Oct. 31 council meeting that “gay people” use transit. Whoa! Jang admits to walking and taking transit—now Stevenson, who is a homosexual, says gay people actually ride the buses! Let me explain further, if I can. Green Party Coun. Adriane Carr spent a lot of time during the 2040 plan debate talking about how she supported the idea of more walking, biking and transit. But, she said, the plan needed more consultation. But, but, but… And Carr’s use of the word “but” is what prompted Stevenson to say, somewhat bizarrely, the following: “I have to say that Coun. Carr reminds me of people I’ve known over the years who have said to me: ‘You know, I really do like gay people but…’” At that point Vision Coun. Andrea Reimer interjected and told Stevenson to stick to the main motion related to transportation. “Well, gay people use transportation. So it’s all tied together,” he said. Just another head-scratcher-of-a-day at council, folks. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

CONTINUING CONTINUING ED The school board voted unanimously Monday night to let Continuing Education carry on for the 2012-2013 school year and to revaluate the program prior to adoption of the 2013-2014 preliminary budget, despite a continuing gap between revenue and cost. When comparing program costs to the fees collected so far for the fall term, the differential is $140,000. But Maureen Ciarniello, associate superintendent of learning services, says that’s not a budget loss. She said the district is being “harsh” on itself when calculating whether it’s meeting overhead costs. Fifty-three more courses were still to start at the time of the update, Oct. 23, so additional revenue is expected and the gap between revenue and spending is expected to shrink further during the winter term. “We noted that we offered a third fewer courses than last year but our revenues are only down nine per cent over last year at this point,” Ciarniello said. Axing Continuing Education was one of the options the board considered last spring to manage its $4.68 million 2012-2013 budget shortfall. It was estimated that terminating the 105-year-old program would save the district about $100,000 in 2012-2013 and that $150,000 could be earned in rental income from vacated space. But the board decided in June to continue with the fall session, try to build up the program, address the budget shortfall and

explore whether other organizations, such as Langara College, would be interested in running any part of the program if the district decided to give it up. Staff freshened up the Continuing Education website, focused on marketing courses better and didn’t put any work into offering classes that had been repeatedly cancelled over the years. Ciarniello reported to the Education and Student Services Committee last month that participation in Continuing Education’s Saturday Zone program that’s targeted for children and youth increased three times over the winter 2012 term, and increased targeted advertising appears to have resulted in higher registration for Night School in One Day courses and a 40 per cent increase in revenue. “We’re just trying a bunch of things to see if they’ll work because we heard strongly during the budget process that there were a lot of people who valued the courses and the fact that this program has been around over a hundred years,” Ciarniello said. Other organizations were interested in offering courses in school spaces designed for woodworking, jewelry making and cooking and were keen to work with some of the Continuing Education instructors, she said.

A housing development proposed for the land adjacent to Little Mountain would include an urban farm and daycare.

f approved, a 380-suite townhome development proposed for land adjacent to the Little Mountain site off Main Street will include an urban farm, daycare, rooftop gardens and fruit trees. Vancouver realtor Al De Genova said the focus of the North East Quadrant development is “families and community.” “I’ve worked on three projects in the past two years along the Main Street corridor so I’ve met a lot of young couples who said what they want is true family housing,” said De Genova. “They also said they can’t afford $1.2 million, but can afford $600,000.” De Genova estimates two-bedroom, 860square-foot townhomes in the project would start at about $429,000, while 1,000-squarefoot, three-bedroom homes would start at $570,000. “Even then I hate to use the word ‘affordable,’” said De Genova, who said pricing was important in conceiving the project. “But they are certainly attainable.” The boundaries of the project include West 33rd Avenue, Main Street, Quebec Street and what will eventually become West 35th Avenue. The project will be built on property adjacent to the former Little Mountain social housing site, which is being developed by Holborn Properties. If approved, between 60 and 80 units will be given to the city for use as accessible rental units. De Genova and a team, including Walter Francl Architects and PWL Partnerships, are working on the concept. De Genova has also been going door-to-door and speaking to the

residents living within the quadrant about selling their homes and so far about 70 per cent have listed. De Genova said he is most excited about the urban farm, which would be located next to what will one day be the new Little Mountain Neighbourhood House. He imagines children from both the complex and community learning about farming. A permanent weekend farmers market is also included in the plan. Vision Vancouver Coun. Raymond Louie met with De Genova about the proposal and told the Courier he likes what he sees — so far. “The proposal his team is presenting is an interesting one,” said Louie. “But it will still be a matter of canvassing the neighbourhood to see if the residents agree.” Louie appreciates the agricultural components of the plan as well as the suggested height of the development, which will be between four and six stories. “It fits with the stripping down of the taller buildings on the main [Holborn] site,” said Louie. “But of course, there’s much more work to be done.” Louie added the fact the townhomes would be designed for families in mind with two and three bedrooms is also a plus. “But a lot will have to be passed by the community before the formal application,” said Louie. “We’ll be looking carefully at what the community needs and how it would fit within the community, but the proposed components seem to be a positive step.” An open house regarding both the North East Quadrant and Little Mountain housing developments takes place Nov. 24 at Hillcrest Community Centre from 1 to 4 p.m. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: @sthomas10

TransLink CEO on board for transit expansion FUNDING FOR BROADWAY CORRIDOR LINE STILL UNDER DISCUSSION MIKE HOWELL

Staff writer

T

he chief executive officer of TransLink wants a rapid transit system built along the Broadway corridor but what type, when it will be built and how it will be paid for are questions he couldn’t answer Tuesday. Ian Jarvis said TransLink needs to first create an investment plan for a rail network, road system and transit-related services such as cycling before committing to rapid transit along Broadway. “When we put it all together, we’ve got to see what the bill is and we need to make choices not only on what’s great from a transportation perspective but also what makes sense financially and what’s affordable,” he told reporters after delivering a speech Tuesday to a Board of Trade-sponsored event at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. “At some point in time [rapid transit along Broadway] will be built but that’s a matter of estab-

More than 100,00 transit riders per day use the Broadway corridor. lishing priorities.” Jarvis pointed out it cost $100 million per kilometre to construct the Canada Line. The provincial government’s transit plan estimated it would cost $2.8 billion to construct a 12-kilometre line from Broadway station to the University of B.C. Jarvis said he’s well aware of

the congestion at the Broadway station, pointing out more than 100,000 transit riders per day use the corridor. When the $1.4 billion Evergreen Line from Coquitlam is completed in the summer of 2016, the Broadway station is expected to see an increase of 25 per cent more transit users. Last week, city council passed

BCIT connects. BCIT directs.

the City of Vancouver’s 2040 transportation plan, which aims to have two-thirds of all trips done by foot, bike or transit by 2040. The key to achieving that goal is the operation of an underground rapid transit system along Broadway, said Jerry Dobrovolny, the city’s director of transportation. At the root of any expansion of transit is finding money to pay for it and developing a funding mechanism that is fair and equitable to taxpayers, Jarvis said. “We’ve studied what other major metropolitan areas have done and there’s myriad of options that are available,” he said, noting road pricing is becoming part of the solution in other cities. “It’s something that we need to discuss.” Last month, the mayor’s council on regional transportation gave the provincial government and TransLink an ultimatum to work out a long-term funding plan. The mayors have said they will cancel the agreed-to $30 million property tax hike, if the government and TransLink can’t settle on a deal by

Feb. 28. “We’re excited about that, there’s momentum there and we’re going to do everything we can to support [them],” Jarvis said. TransLink recently released its 2013 Base Plan and Outlook which showed the agency expects $472 million less than forecast in revenue over the next three years, mostly because of lower fuel tax and transit revenues. The provincial government’s recent audit of TransLink found $41 million in savings. The audit was mentioned in a question to Jarvis from a Board of Trade member. He pointed out about $35 million of that is related to financial policies. “We don’t manage by audits,” Jarvis said, noting the other savings is related to cutting transit service. “What we hear loud and clear is people do not want us to cut service. So if we’re going to go there, we need to have a conversation with the mayors council and the communities that we serve.” mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

Our commitment to news starts here and continues to your doorstep. eo on the web and on mobile apps. There are 10 of us in the Courier newsroom producing those stories: three editors, one desker, five reporters, one busy photographer. Spreading out from our newsroom are two dozen regular contributors and this city’s constellation of freelancers. Some of our contributors have been with this paper for more than three decades, while others are appearing with us this week for

the very first time. They’ve picked a good time to join because with this issue we are unveiling the refreshed Courier you are reading now. The result of a collaboration with designer Shelley Ackerman, it’s a modern, breathable presentation that’s informative and pleasant to behold. From fonts to photo boxes, it’s a lively and updated design we think you’ll like. We’ve redesigned old sections

and added new features. We’ve remade the front page and given better prominence to news on pages four and five. That commitment to news is important as we continue with market-leading coverage on city hall, schools and the park system through both stories and columns like 12th and Cambie and Class Notes. Our opinion pages have more room for letters, including from social media, and provide new voices, such as in this issue provincial affairs columnist Les Leyne from our sister paper The Victoria Times-Colonist. Our entertainment section welcomes two new writers on food. Our local sports coverage is expanding. We’ve added a new Community section. Anchored by the popular Community Calendar with Sandra Thomas, it includes two new features: a City Living photo page on Wednesday with a corresponding gallery online, and a new series of rotating Community Correspondents, beginning with Kerrisdale resident Terri Clark. Look for more new voices and features as the weeks progress. None of this will work without

you. You might have seen our new tagline on the front of this paper: “the voice of Vancouver neighbourhoods.” That phrase was the brainchild some months ago of assistant editor Fiona Hughes and it captures what we do completely. In a time of Internet chatter and online gossip, in a city that has ongoing problems with affordability, transportation, development and cultural misunderstanding, Vancouver needs local newspapers grounded in our neighbourhoods and communities. In stories, commentary and photos about Vancouverites, this paper is a platform for neighbours and neighbourhoods to learn about each other. That means we rely on you to provide us with tips on news stories and events about your community. For new stories and letters to the editor, email us at editor@vancourier.com.

Kinder Morgan banking on its safety record

T

hree weeks after B.C. laid down the conditions for getting a pipeline endorsed, the president of Kinder Morgan wrote a six-page letter to Premier Christy Clark. It gives a glimpse of how the company — which is planning to twin an existing line to Metro Vancouver — is trying to differentiate itself from the Enbridge Northern Gateway effort to build a line to Kitimat. The public argument over that proposal is reaching peak volume just as debate on Kinder Morgan’s plan is getting underway. And the impression is building that the Kinder Morgan project — which is a year or two behind Enbridge in the approval process — is the one to take seriously. Enbridge is now facing a wall of opposition from multiple sectors. Even the B.C. Liberals seem to be growing steadily more skeptical about the idea of pumping bitumen through mostly virgin wilderness to a new oil port on the wild west coast. Kinder Morgan’s idea — known as the Trans Mountain Project — has its share of critics too. But the company is pressing ahead with a plan to make a formal application in late 2013 to twin an existing line from Alberta to Metro Vancouver by way of Kamloops and have it finished by 2017. After the B.C. government set down the conditions, company president Ian Anderson wrote Clark. The letter was made public late last month in response to a freedom-of-information request by a researcher. Anderson said it comprised the company’s “initial thoughts” on the conditions. “A key distinction between the two pipeline proposals, irrespective of geography, is that Northern Gateway is a greenfield proposal and Trans Mountain, with its 60-year operating history, is not,” Anderson wrote. He said it’s obvious that “heavy oil” is a concern of the government and the public. “The existing Trans Mountain pipeline has been transporting increasing amounts of heavy oil for the past 30 years,” he said. Andersonsaiditrepresentsaboutaquarterofthevolumesnowshippedthrough the line. “Contrary to much of the public misinformation regarding corrosiveness and oil spill clean up… heavy oil is not significantly different than conventional oil. The Trans Mountain pipeline is not corroding nor is effective oil-spill response hindered because of it. “In my view, focusing on heavy oil mischaracterizes many progressive and excellent ideas advanced in the [B.C. government’s] report.” B.C.’s conditions are: Successful completion of environmental review, worldleading safety standards on both the marine and terrestrial sides, respect for First Nations’ rights and a fair share of the benefits for B.C. Anderson said he is confident Trans Mountain will pass the environmental review. He said that was “not out of a lack of respect for the process,” but because they built 160 kilometres of pipeline through Jasper National Park and Mount Robson Provincial Park four years ago, a job that required the highest standards. He lauded the Western Canada Marine Response Corporation, an oil-spill coop founded in the 1970s. Although the company had a disastrous spill on land in 2007, when a work crew ruptured a line in Burnaby spilling almost a quarter-million litres, Anderson said the co-ordinated response was first-rate. Addressing aboriginal treaty rights is simply a law that must be complied with, he said. The existing line crosses 15 reserves and the traditional territories of many more. Anderson said they might not get agreements with all First Nations, but will seek solutions, and fulfill the obligation to consult and mitigate. The last and touchiest issue — a fair share — is “outside the direct control” of the company. But Anderson said he would welcome talks on the issue and the company could play a role in helping find a solution. So it’s building on a 60-year history, through mountains that have already been climbed, to a port that’s not nearly as exposed. But it has another advantage at this point — the NDP opposition is withholding judgment. With the widespread assumption the NDP will win the election next May, the party’s views are crucial. Leader Adrian Dix has completely rejected the Northern Gateway, but he’s non-committal on Trans Mountain because the application hasn’t been filed yet. In his lengthy statement against the Enbridge proposal, Dix put most of the emphasis on the increased tanker traffic that would ensue on the north coast. If it’s a fresh new NDP government that has to make the call on Trans Mountain, it may not be the automatic rejection some people expect. lleyne@timescolonist.com

The U.S.election’s possible influence on Canada

A

s of 1 p.m. Monday, the day before yesterday’s U.S. election, the Tea Party was working hard to secure a win for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock. News junkies —and regular watchers of The Colbert Report — will know Mourdock for his rigid stance on abortion. “… even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” Isn’t it rather presumptuous of anyone to talk so knowingly of God’s will? To quote Susan B. Anthony: “I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.” Mourdock joined a handful of Republican politicians on what Stephen Colbert termed Team Rape, which also included pro-life Republican politician Dr. Scott DesJarlais who told his mistress (a patient of his at the time) to get an abortion to salvage his marriage, and Republican Todd Aikin who said this year that victims of “legitimate rape” rarely experience pregnancy because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” All I can say is I hope the good folks of Indiana are living in the 21st century and not the Middle Ages and will make sure Mourdock never holds political office — despite Mitt Romney’s ringing endorsement of the medieval man. The recent political discourse surrounding rape and abortion within the Republican ranks in the lead-up to the marathon American election has been nothing short of bizarre. Who are these “grey-faced men with $2 haircuts,” as Tina Fey described Mourdock, to tell women about what rape is. Stunning really. I can only hope Romney, who has flipflopped from his previous pro-choice stance when he was governor of Massachusetts, fails to make it into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and make good on his promise of getting the Supreme Court to overturn Roe vs. Wade thus allowing states to set their own abortion laws. Apparently people like Mourdock et al, who don’t accept abortion in any situation, would prefer to see women of childbearing age (mothers, sisters, cousins, aunts) die in back alley abortions or develop chronic gynecological problems as is the fate of tens of thousands of women across the world. This is a touchy issue — always will be. I can safely predict that if Romney becomes the next American president, abortion rights in Canada will become an election issue with Prime Minister Stephen Harper ultimately reneging on his promise not to re-open the debate on women’s access to abortion. Harper is miles above Romney in the intellect department, but his list of broken promises is extensive. And signing a secret deal (FIPA) with a totalitarian state (China) without Parliamentary debate doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in someone’s “promises” of government accountability and transparency. As I read somewhere once long ago: if you don’t believe in abortion, don’t have one. Yet somehow, privileged members of 49 per cent of the population who will never face such a decision still feel they should have a say in what a woman does with her body and life. It’s long past time everyone gathered their energies and resources to reduce abortions through education and affordable access to contraceptives. Paramount, however, is a women’s right to choose. On another election note — though one less emotionally charged — is the vote Tuesday on whether to legalize marijuana for adult use in Washington, Oregon and Colorado. A similar proposition was put forward in California two years ago and was narrowly defeated. It has been claimed that those who were against legalizing pot were the marijuana growers themselves — particularly in the “Emerald Triangle” of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties — who helped bankroll the No campaign. It makes sense. Why would they want to see their huge tax free profits disappear? In an interview about Proposition 19 and Tuesday’s vote, Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), told Mint Press News the “sellers of marijuana have joined with narks, pee testers and beer testers.” Will the “gangapreneurs” have an influence on the 2012 votes in Washington, Oregon and Colorado? We’ll have to wait and see. If the vote is in favour in legalization, will it signal a change north of the 49th parallel and end the futile war on drugs? fhughes@vancourier.com twitter.com/hughesfiona

BIBLE IN SCHOOLS NOT RIGHT

To the editor: Re: “Holy texts, free stuff and lessons in critical thinking,” Oct. 31. With regard to the brouhaha about Bibles in Chilliwack schools and your useful suggestions for additional readings of books by freethinkers such as Hitchens, Dennett, Harris and company, one crucial piece of information appears to have been overlooked by all concerned, namely, the School Act (1996) of British Columbia. Section 76 of that Act clearly states: (1) All schools and Provincial schools must be conducted on strictly secular and nonsectarian principles. (2) The highest morality must be inculcated, but no religious dogma or creed is to be taught in a school or Provincial school. For background material on how this Section came about, “google” Joan Russow on Wikipedia, which states: “Russow first gained attention in the ‘Lord’s Prayer Case’ which resulted in the banning of school prayer in public schools in British Columbia in 1989”).

Glenn M. Hardie, Vancouver ••• To the editor

I wanted to let you know that I appreciated your column. I am a Christian (and one that is OK with respectful proselytizing). Yet I cannot help but agree with your stance, as well as Mr. Ajabu’s in this matter. It is not fair to privilege the access of one religious group above others, even in Chilliwack. Perhaps there could be a yearly fair or group of speakers representing a spectrum of faiths (including atheists and agnostics, who also require faith to maintain their beliefs. That way, we can move toward a more equitable system. Of course I have strong

convictions about the benefits of my own faith. However, the same could be said for anyone else, regardless of their beliefs. We all come to our beliefs for good reason. Sean St. Jean, Port Moody

WELFARE TESTERS WASTED THEIR TIME

To the editor: Re: “Welfare Food Challenge participants hungry and stressed,” Oct. 26 The progressive, compassionate advocates for those languishing on the current, absurdly low welfare rate unfortunately are likely wasting their time and effort. I read somewhere that, when informed and then questioned, “many” B.C.ers were “shocked” at the incredible hardships of those people subsisting on welfare’s extremely meager pittance. Furthermore, very high and low income folk were found to have one notable ideological commonality: They’re sick and tired of any of their tax dollars going towards a social safety net that can be, and likely often is, shamefully abused. And while some of these folk are quite vocal about their non-charitable sentiments, I believe that the majority of them are silent — except at the ballot box.

CITY MUST CONSULT ON CAR SHARE SPOTS To the editor:

Re: False Creek resident smarting over lost parking, Oct. 24. The car-share vehicles can also tie up parking for an unlimited time in Permit Parking Only (PPO) zones where people like myself pay city hall for a permit to park in front of their homes.

However, if you rent a vehicle from Budget, for example, you have to buy an additional permit from the city to park in front of your own home. We only have enough PPO for three vehicles and it’s commonplace that it’s tied up by car-share vehicles, staff/students/suppliers/ contractors to VCC- King Edward Campus. I have a neuromuscular disease, cannot walk far and the next closest PPO is over a block away. When I raised the issue with the city, they didn’t care and the car-share companies I contacted basically told me to screw myself as the city gave them the right to park anywhere for as long as they wanted. The last number I heard was 873 car-share vehicles in Vancouver with more coming and there has never been any public consultation. George Brissette, Vancouver

IF SHARK FINS OK, ARE PANDA TESTICLES NEXT? To the editor:

Re: “Shark fin ban dictatorial and autocratic,” Letters, Oct. 31. Stephen Chiu should weep not for democracy nor feel bad about the “inhumane treatment of the sharks in the process of obtaining their fins.” The ban of shark fin soup is merely a small step in trying to save certain species of one of the earliest complex life forms on this planet from total extinction. Sure, we have a democratic right to eat whatever we want no matter how gross or gelatinous it is, but a simple respect for wrong and right would draw line at people and endangered life. What’s next on the list of delicacies to defend — panda balls? Cal Koat, Vancouver

DOWNTOWN

P

hotographer Rebecca Blissett, inspired by the 1968 film The Swimmer starring Burt Lancaster, spent time this past spring and summer documenting swimmers at play and rest in and around this city’s outdoor pools. With these popular outdoor pools rapidly going the way of the dodo, Blissett’s photographs are a nostalgic look of an era on the wane. Blissett used both medium format and vintage dive cameras to capture images reminiscent of a simpler summer time. Those photographs will be on display in an exhibit entitled Pool Life Nov. 15 to 17 at Visual Space Gallery, 2075 Alberni St. Blissett’s work has also often appeared in the Courier, where she works as an interim photographer. Some of Blissett’s photographs along with the cover story she wrote about this city’s outdoor pools can be found at vancourier.com by searching “Pool players.”

For those of you not in the know, a “Zoomer” is a member of the Baby Boom generation, but with a lot of zip. Media pioneer Moses Znaimer, president and CEO of CARP: A new Vision of Aging for Canada, coined the phrase to better describe vibrant adults born during the Baby Boomer years. Znaimer is bringing his motivational message about living a fulfilling life after 50 to Vancouver Nov. 14 from 4 to 6:30 p.m. to the Norman Rothstein Theatre, part of the Jewish Community Centre, 950 West 41st Ave. The event also includes wine, appetizers and door prizes.

et’s start at the beginning. I am not a Vancouverite but instead a transplanted New Yorker drawn to the city’s flame by love nearly four decades ago. But that love evolved into a fierce desire to bask in our wondrous land and seascape. By happenstance, my profession as park board communications officer blended miraculously well with my natural affinity for parks, gardens, green spaces and, most significantly, trees. In my 35 years as a park board spokesperson, I was exposed to an endless army of dedicated community proponents of the aforementioned who were tireless in their efforts speaking in defence of what makes this place so livable. These long-gone crusaders did things like saving the entrance to Stanley Park from highrise development; lobbying for the majority of land comprising the old Shaughnessy Golf Course for what would become the magnificent VanDusen Gardens; and never relenting in encouraging the park board to purchase land along Point Grey Road for public waterfront access as it did along English Bay so many years before. These “heroes” were advocates for public spaces. Now I believe we need a new generation of advocates to protect private landscapes, primarily trees. There are days when I walk around my Kerrisdale neighbourhood when I become disorientated, not by a failing mind but by a landscape uprooted. How many times have I called city hall and left messages about unnecessary imminent bulldozing of iconic trees where houses are being demolished. I know what you may be thinking, a person’s property is their own, but I would vehe-

mently disagree when it comes to trees. Next time you drive across Burrard Bridge or are stopped at a light near 16th and Arbutus, look up to the west and register the great, green canopy of trees. Though our city street trees are significant softeners on boulevards, they are diminutive in comparison to the giants that dot older residential properties. Sometimes they have been planted with little thought for their future impact on gardens but their positive attributes are many and a myriad of solutions await those eager to live in harmony with them. A silent slaughter is happening all around us as older homes are flattened and virtually every single living thing is obliterated from the landscape. What instruction or supervision is coming from city staff in regard to tree retention? Most of my friends wouldn’t dream of taking down a tree over a certain caliper without checking first, so what message is given to developers and contractors? I would say the message is clear across the board — take down whatever you want because building houses trumps all else. And please save me from the usual response that the developer will replace all downed trees. Have you actually seen the new trees? Usually they are three-year-old ornamentals that will never attain the status of the property’s former woody sentinel. Today on my morning walk I passed a lovely, diminutive cottage property probably built in the 1930s. A modest house, its front garden is dominated by a giant cedar whose limbs had been appropriately “lollipopped-up.” It is a perfect home more than adequate for raising a family. Whoever lives there feels an obligation to this evergreen but the scene saddened me. I thought, this tree is on Death Row and I feel powerless in stopping the execution. A year ago we moved from our home and garden of 35 years in Kerrisdale to a smaller property just 12 blocks away. One of the deciding factors in choosing the new location was the only tree that stood on the 33 by 130 foot space was a 100-foot cedar tree. I loved the house, but when I eyed the evergreen grandeur of this elegant specimen, I silently thought, we will save you for as long as we live here. And we will.

THE COSTS OF CARE GO BEYOND HOUSING, SO BE PREPARED COMPILED BY HELEN PETERSON

When planning for the costs associated with growing older, people often only consider seniors’ housing prices. However, forward planning should also take into consideration that at some point you may need some equipment or a paid caregiver, especially if you wish to remain in your own home. You might not ever need them, but if you do, it is good to know what this might cost. Peter Silin of Diamond Geriatrics produces Elder Voice, a local newsletter

for seniors, and offers advice on the requirement for equipment. “The need for equipment often comes on slowly. It might start with a cane or raised toilet seat, but if an illness or condition progresses, you could end up buying enough equipment to outfit what may seem like a private hospital in your home,” he says. “While this may avoid a move to a nursing home, purchases of electric hospital beds, lifts, alarms, wheelchairs, grab bars and ramps can reach $10,000 to $15,000, or more.” Mobility aids are some of the most common equipment people need. Silin says these include canes, walkers, wheelchairs, and scooters. If the time comes when you need to consider one of these, make sure they are suited to the uses to which you will put them. “Individual requirements stem from the nature of a disability, and your body size,” says Silin. “Wheelchairs especially need to be properly measured by someone who is qualified to do this, such as an Occupational Therapist.” A second group of equipment could be considered transfer aids--items that help someone move on and off a bed, chair or toilet. They include mechanical lifts, grab bars and railings, ceiling lifts, and motorized armchairs. Transfer equipment also includes staircase glides and home

Hooping it up With Christmas just around a couple of corners, the holiday is a time for family get-togethers, but this time of year can also be one of loneliness and extreme isolation for some. What do you do to combat these feelings all through the year? It’s been stated that loneliness, per se, is distinct from depression. Social relationships (sometimes difficult to find in Vancouver) are necessary for our overall health. So how do you beat loneliness, if, as a senior, you live alone? Well, nothing beats going for a long walk where you can greet strangers on the way. The majority will return the greeting - and if you meet a young mother with a child, or

Above all else, talk with your transportation company ahead of time. Let them know how they can help you, as not all disabilities are obvious.

How about community centres, with their myriad activities for every age group? The Vancouver Park Board runs 24 centres. Why not join in the fun! Upon my retirement at age 65 in 1992, a hiking companion urged me to volunteer as a counsellor at the 411 Seniors Centre (at 411 Dunsmuir at that time). My working career had been spent as a psychiatric social worker, so counselling was my forté. I stepped into the 411 and spent 19

Courier redesign rejects KUDOS& KVETCHES

A

stute readers may have noticed a few changes in this issue of the Courier. Like one of the Real Housewives of Vancouver, the Courier felt it was time for a little rejuvenation therapy to shore up our 103-year-old breasts, puff up our frown-prone lips and smooth out a few Kerrisdale-sized creases in our furrowed brow. Sadly, most of K&K’s recommendations for the Courier’s redesign were rejected. Here’s what you’re missing out on thanks to the narrow-minded powers that be: • More Cooper Bold fonts to give our stories about homelessness, condo proposals and the Downtown Eastside the ironic stylishness of a Gary Marshall sitcom in the ’80s. • Complimentary wind chimes with every Davidicus Wong health column. • A kid’s puzzle called “Where’s Hasiuk?” • A weekly two-page roundup called “What’s Bugging Dunbar Residents Now.” • More hydroponics troubleshooting in Anne Marrison’s garden column. • A gritty video series following the VPD as they nab scofflaws who don’t have proper I.D. on them as they brazenly try to get their seniors discount at various Marpole establishments. The title? Through a Blue-Rinse Lens.

• Scratch and sniff Kudos and Kvetches.

MOCK THE LINE K&K did something we haven’t done in long time. We rode the SkyTrain. Because of where we live and our lack of desire to discover what treasures lie beyond King George Station, we almost exclusively ride the Canada Line. But after a brief trip from Waterfront to Burrard Station on the SkyTrain’s Expo Line last Thursday, we feel we can unequivocally say… what a dump. Sure, SkyTrain dates back to Expo 86, but there was no old-timey charm to our ride, which felt like a cross between New York’s subway system in The Warriors and a dank, rickety cargo ship transporting convicts on an episode of Battlestar Galactica circa 1979. Then again, maybe we’ve been spoiled by riding the Canada Line — not only because it’s more direct, but because it’s newer, cleaner, roomier and attendants in top hats and coattails hand out complimentary flutes of champagne on “Thirsty Thursdays.” You didn’t know that? Ifthere’sanupsidetoourSkyTrainexperience it’s that it reminded us there’s another world out there for us to discover, whether it’s the alligator-infested mangroves of Joyce-Collingwood, the rows of pastry and head shops that make up Edmonds’ “Little Nanaimo,” Royal Oak’s majestic, um, oaks, or the post-apocalyptic moonscape that is Scott Road, named after longtime resident, Scott, brother of Doug. k&k@vancourier.com Twitter: @KudosKvetches

Canada’s first female police officers get their due LAW, ORDER AND FEMINISM EXPLORED IN KID GLOVES STATE OF THE ARTS with Cheryl Rossi

T

he first female police officers in Canada wore long skirts, carried purses and no weapons. They were hired by the Vancouver Police Department in 1912. But not much more is known about constables Lurancy Harris and Minnie Miller. So award-winning playwright Sally Stubbs (Wreckage, Herr Beckmann’s People) researched the women and has written about what they must have faced in Kid Gloves, which runs Nov. 10 to Dec. 1 at the Firehall Arts Centre. “This play is really about these women finding their way in this world that is dominated by men, and in this seedy underbelly where decent women at the time weren’t expected to be,” said Stubbs. The women in Kid Gloves take to the streets of Chinatown and try to establish

themselves in a city and a police department unaccustomed to their presence. Stubbs said Harris and Miller were hired more as social workers to deal with “female morality” or prostitution, and to bring wayward women back “into the bosom of their community and to the church.” “Minnie Miller... was the first woman in North America, I believe, to arrest a man for behaviour offensive to a woman,” she said. “I’m assuming the man flashed her.” Stubbs discovered little information about these women exists when she visited the Vancouver Police Museum. She believes the women were in their late 30s or early 40s when they were hired. Stubbs read a historical book written by former police museum curator Joe Swan to get a feel for the politics, corruption and how the police department was run, and she interviewed two female RCMP officers, one current and one former. A memoir called Ladies of the Night, which was written by one of the first policewomen from Calgary, Margaret Gilkes, also informs the story. Stubbs learned Edmonton also claims it hired Canada’s first woman police officer in

Colleen Wheeler and Donna Spencer star in Kid Gloves, Sally Stubbs’ play about Canada’s first female police officers. 1912, Calgary in 1943, Toronto even later, and the RCMP not until the early 1970s. “They were saying it may have been less traumatic for them in the RCMP because when they were brought in it was also the time when they did a big hire of people who had not traditionally been on the force, so people of colour and people from different cultural backgrounds,” she said. According to play director and artistic producer of the Firehall Arts Centre, Donna Spen-

cer, Stubbs takes on feminism, prejudice, racism, corruption, sex and violence with humour and compassion in Kid Gloves. Colleen Wheeler and Dawn Petten play the fledgling cops. The Keystone Cops black and white silent films premiered in 1912, and Stubbs said their style is shaping the design of Kid Gloves. “Part of the show takes place in a club that’s affiliated with a brothel, so there’s song and dance of era, too, and we have a piano on the stage,” Stubbs said. “There’s a darker side, too, but there’s a lot of humour in the play.” Stubbs hopes theatregoers will leave thinking and feeling entertained. “I hope that the play resonates with some of the issues that are going on today,” Stubbs said. “A lot of things have changed but a lot of things have stayed the same.” The police museum is running a “Women in Policing: 100 Years in the VPD” exhibit. Those who want to hear how things have changed can attend a lunchtime question and answer session with two currently serving female members of the department and take in a matinee performance of Kid Gloves on Nov. 14, 21 and 28. crossi@vancourier.com Twitter: @Cheryl_Rossi

Ian Wallace’s Lookout (1979), comprised of 12 hand-coloured silver gelatin prints, is part of the Vancouver artist’s career retrospective at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Wallace exhibit merges media PHOTOGRAPHY AND PAINTING INTERSECT IN RETROSPECTIVE JEN ST. DENIS Contributing writer

This is really Vancouver art. I’m not making a big thing about it, but the unique esthetic of the city and its people comes through in the work.” Artist Ian Wallace is speaking by phone from the East Vancouver studio he’s occupied since 1985. He’s repeating what he told a tour of Vancouver Art Gallery docents just a few days before. The tour went two hours longer than planned, he says — he simply had so much to say about the work, spanning over 40 years, now on display. Ian Wallace: At the Intersection of Painting and Photography explores the internationally renowned artist’s creative journey from the 1960s to today. From an experimental slide show (Poetry Must be Made by All) to elaborately staged, large-scale photographs (Lookout) and many works that combine photographs and abstract painting (Clayoquot Protest, At the Crosswalk), the exhibit documents Wallace’s preoccupations with cinema, urban landscapes and the process of making art. Steely downtown Vancouver is the subject of many of Wallace’s large photographs, but the artist says his formative years in bucolic West Vancouver played a big part in his development as an artist. In 1954, Wallace, then 11, moved with his parents and four younger brothers to what was at the time “the top” of West Vancouver. “From our house down to the water was people and West Vancouver, from our house up above was wilderness,” says Wallace. “There was this total kind of contrast between the wilderness and the mountains — what we always called the bush — and the town below.” Wallace remembers going into “the bush” in the morning and not coming

home until dinner time. “We used to build our own little gold rush town... It was very worked out with costumes and everything. We’d have all these narratives, we’d have robberies and chase each other through the woods,” Encouragement of the arts at his high school and “incredible teachers” also played a role. “The atmosphere in the school was great,” says Wallace. “There was real encouragement, even though there were no real resources.” Wallace says that hijinks got him kicked out of an industrial drafting class; as punishment, he was sent to the art class, where he specialized in drawing portraits of pretty girls. He also published cartoons and poetry in the school newspaper. When he moved out of his mother’s house after high school, it was into an old house at Robson and Burrard — then an epicentre of beatnik culture — with two classmates who were also aspiring artists, Terry Reid and King Anderson. “I followed them into beatnik territory,” laughs Wallace. (His brothers Ken and Keith also work in the art world, Ken as a painter and Keith as a curator.) There was also the Question Mark — a club at 15th Street and Marine Drive in West Vancouver where jazz or poetry were on offer almost every night of the week. While Wallace was interested in poetry, filmmaking and playing jazz, art is where he finally settled, although he has continued to bring elements of those other art forms into his work. On the first floor of the exhibition, which deals with his earlier work, film stills from Jean-Luc Godard’s MasculinFeminin make up one piece. Poetry and text are incorporated into other works. On the second floor, Wallace’s interest in urban landscapes, institutions

such as museums and the artist’s studio as a place of work are on display. Many of the pieces are large photographs, which incorporate abstract paintings. In his At the Crosswalk series, two city dwellers on opposite street corners are separated by stark painted blocks in the centre of the photograph. Dwarfed by the office buildings in the background, the people also seem to be separated by an insurmountable gulf. “I’m rescuing painting from oblivion by making it the ground for the photograph,” states Wallace, moving into art history mode, a subject he taught at UBC in the 1960s and ’70s. He explains that he incorporates painting with photography as a way to merge the more highbrow medium of painting with the more common, found-everywhere photography. “Everybody’s telephone has a camera,” Wallace points out. Photography and film took over where paintings used to hold sway, providing realistic portraits of important cultural moments and stories. Abstract art and Cubism were responses to this, says Wallace. For him, merging the two media is his way of maintaining “values about humanity, subjectivity and who we are as individuals.” After decades of depicting urban life, Wallace is now thinking about using “the bush” as subject matter. The retrospective exhibition has given him an opportunity to reflect on his body of work. But he hasn’t finished adding to it yet. “I’ve got a lot of things in my backpack waiting to be unloaded,” says Wallace. jstdenis@nsnews.com

Are writers geniuses or thieves? PROVOCATIVE ETERNAL HYDRA LAUNCHES LITERARY DETECTIVE STORY

E

ternal Hydra, written by Toronto writer Anton Piatigorsky, is an invigorating, challenging play that wrestles with the concept of authorship and appropriation of voice. A Touchstone Theatre production outstandingly directed by Katrina Dunn, its opening night audience buzzed with excitement, hung around the theatre afterwards and, even later, stood discussing it outside in the rain. Is it true that writers, as claimed by character Gordias Carbuncle (John Murphy), a self-loathing Irish-Jewish novelist living in Paris in the 1930s, simply steal other people’s stories — or do they give a voice to the otherwise voiceless? Vivian Ezra (Laara Sadiq) is a

Andrew Wheeler and John Murphy star in Eternal Hydra. scholar who for six years has been so deeply involved in an unpublished 1,000-page manuscript by now-

deceased Carbuncle that she has “materialized” him; she hears him, sees him, adores him. The discov-

ery of his diary by publisher Randall Wellington Jr. (Andrew Wheeler), however, reveals Carbuncle was a terrible drunk who mean-spiritedly denied his research assistant — who was in love with him — credit for her work. Worse, he actually bought one of the 100 stories in his Eternal Hydra manuscript from impoverished African-American writer Selma Thomas (Cherissa Richards) and passed it off as his own. Was this any more fraudulent, Carbuncle argues, than Shakespeare borrowing virtually all of his plots from other sources? There are many layers in this play that shifts back and forth from the office of publisher Randall Wellington Jr., back to the ’30s and even further back to 1866, and the story of Selma Thomas’s grandmother, a

freed slave turned shoemaker. David Roberts’ set, lit by Adrian Muir, is handsome and efficient: a wood-panelled rear wall with windows and doors that open and close to set various locales: Paris, the publisher’s office, the shoemaker’s shop. This is a provocative play with all 11 roles superbly performed by Murphy, Sadiq, Wheeler and Richards; it shakes to the very roots our ideas about writers: geniuses or thieves? —review by Jo Ledingham joled@telus.net

At Studio 16 until Nov. 11 1545 West Seventh Ave. Tickets 604-689-0926 firehallartscentre

Beauty of cosmic proportions orbits Lepage’s Moon a goldfish, swims round and endlessly round like an astronaut lost forever, like our planet spinning through space. This theatrical magic carpet ride explores the relationship between Philippe, his flamboyant, recently deceased mother and his estranged brother André. Amazingly, Lepage fuses this story with the American/ Russian race to dominate space. Lepage is famous for his spectacular staging and the Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre, a

state-of-the-art venue, is perfectly equipped to do justice to Lepage’s technical and aesthetic genius. But it’s not all just smoke and mirrors — although the most stunning visual is a mirror stretching from stage left to stage right. Yves Jacques — playing both Philippe and André as well as their mother — draws us into the sibling rivalry that extends right into adulthood and Philippe’s painful recognition that he was not his mother’s favourite. Jacques, a soft-spoken per-

former (who, on occasion, was difficult to hear) paints a clear picture of brash, self-important weatherman André and uncertain, gay, cultural philosophy student Philippe. The show has changed considerably since 2002 when it was presented at The Playhouse: it’s more playful and yet more emotionally involving. What remains the same is the last staggeringly beautiful scene underscored by Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata: Philippe tumbling weightlessly and joyfully through

SPORT SHORTS BERTHING PAIN

Six Lower Mainland schools are now competing for three — not four — seats to the AAA senior boys soccer provincials because of one Kootenay school’s mistake. Mount Baker in Cranbrook, the only AAA school in the region with a senior boys soccer team, did not properly register its team by the deadline, a mistake that would normally prevent a school from competing in the league and at regional and provincial tournaments. A school representative not only registered late, but blundered again by listing a team with fewer than the 11 players needed for a team to take to the field. Nonetheless, B.C. School Sports will excuse the mistakes, said the province’s soccer commissioner Don Moslin, because their rules have consistently favoured proportional regional representation. “As long as one school is registered, we’re going to meet the requirements of B.C. School Sports,” he said over the phone Friday from Nanaimo where he teaches at Woodland secondary. “We’ve been using that policy ever since — it’s strictly by the percentages.” (These rules mean competitive schools in populous regions like the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley battle fiercely to advance while one school in a region like the Kootenays automatically qualifies. This philosophy can mean the schools competing at provincial championships are not the best in B.C. but do represent all eight regions of the province.) Last year, Mount Baker also failed to register on time. But a second school did register, meaning the zone was allocated a single berth without complications. This year, no school registered and no berth was allocated. The 16 berths were distributed among the other districts, including four to the Lower Mainland although the region has typically qualified for three. In the meantime, regional playoffs began on Oct. 30. But by then, representatives in the Kootenays became wise to the error and petitioned Moslin and the soccer commission for the single berth they believed was theirs. The executive of the soccer commission agreed and on Oct. 30, Moslin contacted Lower Mainland soccer coaches to say they were losing one berth. “It’s a serious situation and as soon as I saw this [...] I knew it was going to be a problem,” he said. “I knew certain coaches were not going to be happy.” The commission’s executive decided the Kootenays would indeed get the berth in spite of their mistakes because B.C. School Sports emphasizes all regions with at least one team be represented at provincials. “We take full responsibility and we stand by what our rules are because that’s what our members have given us,” said Moslin, noting members are schools that vote on decisions and policy. Lower Mainland coaches last week decried the decision, citing past examples when individual schools were excluded because they did not register on time. The difference, said Moslin, was that those schools were from more populous regions that would at least be represented by other schools. “I understand where they’re coming from, I really do. It’s unfortunate, but my hands are tied,” he said. “This is a very, very unique situation. This is the first time this has ever happened. We are trying to troubleshoot and move forward.” Moslin, who said he has been the soccer commissioner for nearly 10 years, is planning for next season when he will set clear expectations for Mount Baker. Moreover, he said he will safeguard the Kootenays their one berth even if no school from the region registers by the deadline. This is a decision he expects “will get me screamed at,” but if the berth is not claimed, it will be allocated to another region. – Megan Stewart

PATRICK’S PAIR OF GOALS SECURES CITY CHAMPIONSHIP MEGAN STEWART Staff writer

C

hurchill Bulldogs team co-captain Sarah Patrick dominated the Vancouver public school senior girls field hockey championships Nov. 1, making decisive plays on defence and scoring two goals in a 3-0 victory over the Kitsilano Blue Demons. Playing in the rain at Eric Hamber secondary, the Grade 12 student challenged Kitsilano right out of the gates and created the Bulldogs’ first scoring opportunity when she stickhandled past defenders and cracked a shot on net. “She’s a really strong player,” said Kitsilano head coach Diane Russell. “She’s fast and has a hard shot.” Kitsilano’s back line was held firm by defender Sophie Vogel and midfielder Natalie Jodoin but Churchill took advantage of their tired opponents and maintained forward pressure through the first half. The Blue Demons qualified for the final two days earlier in a marathon overtime match against Eric Hamber, which they finally won 1-0 after an indecisive shootout went to sudden death.

We have nine Grade 12s that are graduating this year and it was very important that they step up.

The Bulldogs opened scoring when co-captains Jenny Pepper and Patrick combined on a penalty corner, their sixth of the half. Despite a slim lead, Churchill coach Andrea May said the Bulldogs could not let up against Kitsilano. “It’s always nerve-wracking playing Kits,” she said. “We know Kits, we’ve seen them in the past, they are a very good team and they have very quick, strong players. They can make a turnaround, like we witnessed.” The Blue Demons rallied after the break but not before Patrick gave the Bulldogs a little breathing room. Less than three minutes into the second

half, she notched her second off a play set up from Pepper on a penalty corner. Patrick’s first shot was kicked out by the goaltender but she chased it down and fired home the rebound to take a 2-0 lead. Kitsilano then turned on the switch and surged against the Churchill defenders for quick transition chances. They rallied for four excellent drives but Churchill goaltender Nicola Frazer would not be beaten. “With a bit of luck we could have got one in there,” said Russell. Pepper popped home the Bulldogs’ third goal. May said the championship win held a lot of meaning for Churchill. “The girls knew what this game meant. We have nine Grade 12s that are graduating this year and it was very important that they step up,” she said. “They did at the right time to have a beautiful win.” Churchill and Eric Hamber compete at the AAA senior girls field hockey championships Nov. 14 to 16 in Coquitlam. mstewart@vancourier.com

Churchill sparks a fire but can’t fan the flames SENIOR BOYS AND GIRLS CITY VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONSHIP SET FOR THURSDAY MEGAN STEWART

Staff writer

T

he Churchill Bulldogs stole a set from the David Thompson Trojans Monday night at Kitsilano, but the No. 1 ranked team on the East Side held off the powerful Bulldog surge to win on the first day of playoffs. The Trojans won the senior girls’ city volleyball quarterfinal 25-23, 15-25, 25-15, 24-11. “I’m not going to lie, I was pretty scared,” said Trojans head coach Nelson Yu, whose experienced roster had only ever dropped two sets and maintained a perfect 8-0 regular season.

photo Dan Toulgoet

Bronte Stark averaged four kills a set for Churchill in a 3-1 loss to David Thompson Nov. 4 at Kitsilano.

“I told them that you can’t underestimate your opponent. No matter what seed they come in to the playoffs, you start 0-0 and everyone is fair game. They underestimated them.” Churchill is the No. 4 West Side team and in the quarterfinal, drew the best team in the East. The Trojans couldn’t pull away in the opening set and then crumbled in the second, missing passes, making errors and looking like distant cousins of the undefeated team they’d been. “After that second set, they all realized we can’t get past this with putting in a lackluster performance. We can actually lose this game.” Indifferent to their perfect record was Churchill’s Bronte Spark. The five-foot-10 middle blocker was decisive on defence and as a hitter, recording 10 kills in the first two sets. Despite the tremendous challenge to the Trojans, the Bulldogs didn’t have the stamina or experience to match, said Churchill head coach Eric Wong. “They were a much stronger team than us but anyone can win on any given day — that’s sports. I really felt that we had a chance to take it. When the second set was over, I thought that was the start. Sometimes it doesn’t work out, sometimes it does,” he said. “We came into this game knowing that if we were going to win, it was not going to be a three-set victory. You could see during the game, their players focus on everything. You have to work for points to beat them and that’s what makes it so hard. It’s a testament to their coaches that every single player on the team gives 100 per cent on the court.” Playoffs continue this week at Kitsilano with the city championships scheduled for 5 p.m. Nov. 8. In the other quarterfinals on Monday, Point Grey beat Templeton, Killarney beat Kitsilano and Van Tech downed Prince of Wales. The senior boys’ city championships are playing all week at Magee with the championship match set for 6 p.m. Nov. 8. In the first-round quarterfinals on Monday, Van Tech beat Tupper, Eric Hamber defeated Templeton, Magee beat Windermere and David Thompson beat Churchill. mstewart@vancourier.com Twitter: @MHStewart

Mixed emotions greetVancouver runner in NYC DECISION TO CANCEL MARATHON DIVIDES NEW YORK RESIDENTS MEGAN STEWART

Staff writer

T

housands of runners ran laps of Central Park on Sunday, pounding its 6.1-mile perimeter instead of the 26.2-mile marathon route between New York City’s five boroughs. Vancouverite Linda Wong was there, caught in the contentious decision to continue, and then on Friday — barely 24 hours later — cancel the ING New York City Marathon amid controversy and criticism the crippled city could not host the event and ensure runners’ safety despite the promised boost to morale and the economy. The 36-year-old event manager and her friend from Burnaby, Greg Welwood, ran one lap of the park, a far cry from the race Wong had trained for but an experience she’ll nonetheless never forget. “New Yorkers came out and cheered us on, brought their own water and cups and pretzels and showed their support and love for the marathon. That was an amazing and unforgettable experience,” she wrote to the Courier. She knew not everyone was capable of such support for the on-again-offagain marathon. Regions of the East Coast were gutted last week by Superstorm Sandy, an enormous hybrid weather system that cut off power, shut down transit systems and the New York Stock Exchange, chased thousands from their homes, left hundreds without homes to return to, and killed more than 100 peo-

ple in the U.S. and Canada. On Monday, Wong and Welwood were in Staten Island to volunteer. They brought six bags of clothes to donate and purchased fleece sweaters and batteries to contribute to the recovery effort. Wong came close to deferring her race

entry but last Tuesday made an emotional decision to travel and race. When she got the news of the event’s cancellation, she was in LaGuardia Airport, just a few hours removed from arriving at a midtown Manhattan hotel. “We did agree it was the right decision,” she said, noting her feelings ranged from shock, frustration, disappointment and finally acceptance. “I am disappointed by the NYC Marathon management. There are always contingency plans for different situations, and I believe it was their responsibility to assess based on the information they had. My disappointment also lies with the city as an event always partners with race organizers, especially of this magnitude, so the decision was a joint decision.” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg promoted the marathon as a symbol of the city’s resilience, not unlike holding the race two months after the 9/11 attacks. “You have to keep going and doing things, and you can grieve, you can cry and you can laugh all at the same time,” he said Friday morning, according to the Associated Press. However, many New Yorkers disagreed and the backlash swelled. “His attitude was like Marie Antioinette’s [sic] ‘Let them eat cake,’ as the peasants had no bread,” wrote “a Jersey Girl in the midst of this disaster” on the Facebook group Cancel the New York City Marathon. “Seeing huge generators all ready to warm up tents [for runners] filled with vodka and pasta

while Staten Island and all the boroughs are in dire straits was sickening.” Wong was reading posts like these but there were others that struck a more positive tone. “It was clear the city was divided on how they felt about the marathon,” she said. “I was basically tied to the Facebook page for the NYC Marathon and the comments were being escalated on both sides. Frankly, I was unsure on how people would react if I encountered anyone from the city and told them that I was here for the marathon. Thankfully, everyone I met was great.” Among the runners themselves, Wong said she witnessed two predominant reactions to the cancelled race. There were runners who seemed to push forward to complete the marathon, running an equivalent distance around Central Park. “I was a bit mixed on how I felt about that,” she said. Then there were the runners who laced up for the recovery effort. “I think seeing the devastation of Staten Island opened their eyes to what really happened here,” she said, noting the majority of runners are inherently compassionate because training takes sacrifice and the sport draws people together. “Yes, a race is a way to ‘measure’ their training but it is also an experience that runners get to share with each other, uplift one another, and encourage each other. It is quite the bonding experience. Volunteering has now become their bonding experience.” mstewart@vancourier.com Twitter: @MHStewart

SUDOKU

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
