DOES YOUR CHILD STRUGGLE WITH READING, WRITING OR MATH ? FRASER ACADEMY AFTER 3 CAN HELP.

exas-based energy giant Kinder Morgan is asking for public feedback about their proposed provincewide pipeline project at a series of information sessions in and around Vancouver this month. Open house sessions about the potential $4.1 billion expansion of the existing Trans Mountain pipeline from Edmonton to Metro Vancouver will take place Nov. 15 at Harbour Centre (515 Hastings St.) from 5 to 8 p.m. and the same time Nov. 17 at Aberthau Mansion (4397 West 2nd Ave.) in Point Grey. As part of an ongoing tour of potentially affected communities, Kinder Morgan is also planning stops this month in Coquitlam, Surrey and Burnaby, the 1,150- kilometre pipeline’s western terminus and the site of a 234,000-litre oil spill in 2007 after a construction crew ruptured one of their underground pipelines. The Burnaby terminal receives crude oil and refined products for temporary storage and distribution. It has 13 storage tanks with an overall volume of 1.6 million barrels. The public will have a chance to hear the company’s side of the controversial project, which would more than double the current capacity of 300,000 barrels of crude a day by twinning the existing pipeline that supplies tanker ships at a Kinder Morgan’s Westridge Terminal in Burrard Inlet. Wilderness Committee campaigner Ben West says the town hall meetings amount to little more than a public relations exercise. “It’s like one of those condo sales jobs where you look at a condo model and decide whether you’re going to move in,” said West. “It’s not a legitimate process with any ability to give feedback to government about whether it should be approved or not. I see it more like a focus group session that people are volunteering to take part in.” He points out that Kinder Morgan has yet to either formally apply for the project to the National Energy Board (NEB) — expected to happen next year — or to publish a map of where specifically the new pipeline would run.

Renovationstobeginat13rundownhotels HABITAT HOUSING INITIATIVE CHOSEN TO TAKE ON FIVE-YEAR, $100 MILLION PROJECT MICKI COWAN

Contributing writer

A

renovation group has been chosen and renovations will soon begin at 13 provincially owned single room occupancy (SRO) hotels in the Downtown Eastside. A group called Habitat Housing Initiative, comprised of architects, construction and finance groups, will take on the five-year project. More than $100 million is provided by the provincial and federal governments. Atira, a Vancouver women’s resource society, is currently in charge of managing seven of the 13 hotels slated for renovations. Atira CEO Janice Abbott said of the SRO hotels their group manages, “the ones in the worst shape are in really bad shape.” Abbott and Atira were the subjects of a recent CBC TV news story detailing the appalling conditions of an Atira-run building. Abbott said getting these renovations is profoundly important, as she’s noticed there are far fewer issues with tenants in the buildings that have been renovated. “That’s probably a result of a sense of pride. When your building is rotten, the floors ripped up and the bathrooms leak, there’s not a lot of incentive to look after your home,” said Abbott. “I don’t think it’s surprising that people do better when their surroundings

Seven of the 13 Downtown Eastside hotels slated for renovation are managed by Atira Women’s Resource Society CEO Janice Abbott. The Tamura Hotel, operated by the Lookout Emergency Aid Society, is also on the list of buildings to be renovated. are clean and damage-free.” B.C. Housing says the renovations will enable the buildings to retain their heritage value while maintaining affordable housing for the people residing there. Prod Laquian, a UBC professor who has studied poverty alleviation and urban slums around the

world, doesn’t think the renovations are the best approach, or that it will combat the cycle of poverty. More so, he said it may simply paint over the larger issue. “You have all of these amenities and it looks beautiful and clean, but you still have all of those facilities that provide drugs. It will

continue to attract those who are looking for that,” said Laquian, a professor emeritus at the Centre for Human Settlement. The current occupants are mainly Downtown Eastside residents with limited income. The rent for one of these rooms is $375 per month . Laquian said the money dedicat-

ed to the renovation project would be better spent on a long-term solution involving social programs to help break the poverty cycle. Currently, the Downtown Eastside is still too big of a draw for those living in poverty, according to Laquian. “This is a short term solution. It’s not going to solve the larger problem of homelessness,” he said. “What they really need is to be restored back to a state of mental health that will allow them to be self-sufficient. But Abbott maintains the renovations will address many issues with the current buildings, including a lack of kitchens or common rooms in many of the buildings — a crucial step according to her. “The ability to have a kitchen and cook their own meals for some people, it will be life altering,” said Abbott. “There’s a sense of empowerment that comes with being able to live like other people, cook your own meals and look after yourself.” The project is a continuation of renovations to a total of 24 SRO hotels purchased by the province in 2007. Partial renovations have cost $65 million so far. B.C. Housing is currently looking for temporary housing for residents of hotels that need to be vacated during renovations. Renovations begin at the Marble Arch Hotel on Richards Street immediately. mickicowan@gmail.com

Pipeline comments to be part of federal application CONTINUED from page 1

Kinder Morgan’s Burnaby terminal has 13 storage tanks for oil

“They have these perspective maps from 10,000 feet above that roughly show the route of the existing pipeline, but it doesn’t really tell you a hell of a lot. The existing route goes under malls, schools, people’s yards, golf courses, and it was built back in 1952. My guess is that they are going to have to move it pretty substantially.” Kinder Morgan external relations manager Lexa Hobenshield says that while the details of the final application have yet to be finalized, the company still values input from concerned citizens. “When people come into the

sessions, they are handed a discussion guide that has a feedback form that is a formal way of submitting a comment,” said Hobenshield. “The comments that are submitted will become part of the NEB application, so all of them will be taken into consideration. There is also section that outlines the timeline of the project and there will eventually be more detailed info sessions, but these are just more to hear the initial feedback from communities.” The Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, who own land on the shores of Burrard Inlet, has boycotted the information meetings and opposes the project. “The Nation has experienced

the results of crude oil handling and refining on Burrard Inlet for a number of decades. The risks associated with the pipeline expansion are just too great for its people to accept,” the band said in a press release last week. Vancouver city council, which voted to oppose the expansion, are also working on a new bylaw that will ensure the company has enough liability insurance to cover costs in the event of another major spill. Details of the project as well as feedback forms are also available online at transmountain. com. afleming@vancourier.com Twitter: @flematic

‘Safety of sex trade workers’ challenges 955 East Hastings architect COUN. LOUIE MADE SAFETY REQUEST FOR PLANNED 12-STOREY BUILDING MIKE HOWELL Staff writer

I

n his 30 years of designing buildings, architect Stu Lyon admits what he is expected to incorporate into a 12-storey project slated for a strip of East Hastings is a first for him. His challenge: To design the building at 955 East Hastings “with particular regard for the safety of sex trade workers present in the area,” according to one of the conditions outlined in a rezoning application approved by city council Oct. 30. “We’re as interested as you are in finding out exactly what these ideas are because it’s a bit obscure to us,” said Lyon of GBL Architects, which is working on behalf of Wall Financial Corporation. The 12-storey building will occupy a strip of East Hastings next to rail tracks and across from Ray-Cam Community Centre. The 352-unit complex will include 70 units for social housing, with one-third at welfare rates. Space for a possible grocery store and production, distribution and repair businesses will be

A city council request to incorporate safety features for sex trade workers for a Downtown Eastside building has left the project’s architect scratching his head. part of the project. The location of the development happens to be in a neighbourhood used for decades by sex trade workers, one of whom spoke during the public hearing on the project. Concerns about safety was what prompted Vision Vancouver Coun. Raymond Louie to ensure design of the building incorporate “crime prevention through environmental design” principles with regard to sex trade workers.

But what does that look like, exactly? In interviews with Louie and Mary Clare Zak, the city’s director of social policy, that’s a question that still can’t be fully answered until the architect, developer and city discuss modifications or improvements. Louie and Zak both mentioned the possibility of additional lighting but beyond that they’re not prepared to speculate. “I can’t at this point give you any definitive, ‘Here’s what’s going to

happen,’” said Zak, adding that she didn’t anticipate dramatic changes to the design. “We can’t expect the developer to make sweeping changes at this point. It’s more, ‘What can they do that would mitigate any harmful effects and hopefully make the design better for everybody in terms of safety?’” Kate Gibson, executive director of the WISH drop-in centre for sex trade workers, said she is encouraged city council has prostitutes in mind when designing a building. Although Gibson couldn’t recommend specific improvements to the building, she suggested the design ensure the parkade be at the opposite end of the block where sex trade workers are present. “Maybe that would diminish people’s whole interaction with one another so that people won’t be irritated with one another,” she said. Sex trade worker Susan Davis, who belongs to an advocacy group for prostitutes, said concerns about design could be alleviated by allowing sex trade workers to live and work in the building. “I would like to see that sex workers are openly

allowed to bring their customers in to visit with them and I would like to see sex workers at the top of the list in terms of being a priority for housing,” Davis said. If that is not accepted, she said, then the rights of sex trade workers and their presence in the neighbourhood should be written into the building’s strata rules. An open parkade with good lighting is another recommendation. “There has to come a time when we all learn to live together,” Davis added. The discussion about the new complex comes as Zak’s department is developing a way of assessing how new developments in the Downtown Eastside such as the Woodward’s project affect low-income and vulnerable people such as sex trade workers. Lyon, meanwhile, said his firm still has to submit a development permit, go before the urban design panel and then to the development permit board before the project will proceed. mhowell@vancourier.com Twitter: @Howellings

CLASS NOTES

with Cheryl Rossi

LORD NELSON SHAKE UP The recent earthquakes off B.C.’s coast refreshed Vancouverite’s worries about the “big one” hitting home here. So parents and members of the community might want to attend the open house about the seismic renewal of Lord Nelson elementary, Nov. 19. Staff from the Vancouver School Board, the city and the project architect will provide an overview of the undertaking, present the options being considered for the school on Kitchener Street near Nanaimo Street and receive written and oral feedback from participants. The Ministry of Education requires districts to consider a minimum of three seismic mitigation options. David Nelson, district principal of field services, said the team and council considered retaining the gym to see if that would make the project any cheaper. “Not only does it cost more, but you’re also having an undersized gym that doesn’t really meet your needs,” he said. Staff, the consultant team and advisory council members that include parents, teachers, members of the community and representatives of onsite childcare, have considered: • full retention and upgrade of the school, which is estimated to cost $22.5 million; • an upgrade of the school and retention of

the gym, which is rated as less of an earthquake risk than the rest of the school, for a cost of $14.5 million; • an upgrade and retention of some of the façade, which isn’t heritage-rated, at a cost of $18 million, and • a new school for $14.1 million. The open house will include presentations on all of the options and the factors used to come up with the preferred option, which the school board wants to announce at the meeting. These factors include the cost of upgrades versus replacement, providing a fully accessible school and one that melds an efficient use of space with current teaching principles. Preferred concepts will be refined following the open house. A report will go to the board’s planning and facilities committee, and Nelson expects trustees to decide on an option that’s recommended by staff in December or January. The board hopes to submit a report to the ministry in January. Nelson said it’s previously taken the ministry three months to a year to approve a seismic project. Once it’s a go, the project will enter a design phase. The earliest construction might start would be fall 2014. Three hundred and eight-seven children attend Lord Nelson in kindergarten to Grade 7. The open house runs from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the gymnasium at 2235 Kitchener St. The board endorsed principles for capital planning last month that 30 high-risk seismic projects should be completed by 2020, as originally proposed by the province. A total of 42 Vancouver schools await seismic upgrades. crossi@vancourier.com Twitter: @Cheryl_Rossi

Workcrewrescuesescapedparrotatconservatory Clyde was smart to find his way into the antenna, where he was protected from the elements and predatory eagles, while the rising heat from the dome kept him warm through chilly nights. Apparently Clyde is no stranger to adventure. Friends of Bloedel note he flew into the open doors of a fire hall more than 12 years ago and was taken in by Greyhaven Exotic Bird Sanctuary before arriving at the conservatory. Clyde is doing well after his big adventure and is expected to make a full recovery. For pictures of Clyde’s rescue, visit bloedel.wordpress.com.

CENTRAL PARK with Sandra Thomas

CLYDE CAPTURE I had serious misgivings that Clyde, the Eastern Rosella parrot that escaped from the Bloedel Conservatory almost five days ago, could survive even one night in the cold. But survive he did. Clyde, used to the tropical climes of the conservatory based in Queen Elizabeth Park, made his escape through a hole in the Plexiglas dome made by vandals. According to the Bloedel Conservatory blog, worried staff and Friends of Bloedel volunteers searched day and night throughout the park. Their hopes were lifted when they heard Clyde’s calls and finally the escapee was spotted in the antennae structure atop the dome. The problem then became a matter of how to get the colourful bird down from the top of the 70-foot dome. But, coincidently,

Clyde, an Eastern Rosella parrot, is now back at home at the Bloedel Conservatory after fleeing through a hole in the dome. a team from Spectrum Skyworks was on hand to repair the damaged Plexiglas bubble and quickly came to the rescue. According to the blog, the team’s high-level rope access training

and specialized safety equipment allowed them to perform the rescue safely by coaxing the Eastern Rosella into a transport carrier and getting him to the ground. According to Friends of Bloedel,

So the city thinks it’s a great idea to put bowling alleys in community centres as long as the cashstrapped park board handles it. The city has dumped the problem on the park board presumably as a way to quell residents’ protests against the impending demolition of the Varsity Ridge bowling alley at 15th Avenue and Arbutus. Now, at least three park board commissioners are taking the challenge seriously. NPA commis-

sioner John Coupar brought forward a motion this week asking staff to look for options to provide a bowling facility to serve Vancouver residents. Coupar said he hopes the park board can store and eventually recycle the bowling equipment from the Varsity at a future park boardmanaged alley. “We’ve supported lawn bowling for more than 100 years,” says Coupar. “So it seems like a natural progression. It’s also a social game for seniors and kids and that’s important.” Meanwhile, Vision Vancouver commissioners Constance Barnes and Aaron Jasper also created a similar motion, which will go to the board Nov. 26. Barnes says she and Jasper worked on the motion together. She says the protest drove home the message about the importance of bowling to the health and well being of thousands of Vancouverites. “So now Aaron and I are asking that bowling be included in the 2013-2014 recreational review,” says Barnes. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: @sthomas10

A D V E R T I S E M E N T

Start with a plan and end with a successful makeover

Since 1989

Hiring a renovator or repair person means you’re trusting every aspect of your home’s renewal to a stranger. In which case a positive referral is mandatory. Kurt Gust, owner/operator and his staff at Mr. Build can provide a complimentary estimate for any project or repair needed usually within 48 hrs. With 50% of his business coming from referrals and repeat customers, Kurt knows the importance of getting it right the first time. Below are nine critical steps a homeowner needs to take for a successful renovation. 1. Do your homework Whether you are making modest changes in one or two rooms, or you are transforming the entire house into a dream of a lifetime, the renovation process can be pleasant and smooth – if you take the time to plan your project carefully. Advance research is the key to getting what you want. Review magazines, books and websites to get an idea of the look you want. Visit friends, family members and colleagues who have renovated recently. Consider your lifestyle and the needs of your family, both in the short and long term. 2. Find out how much you can afford If you are thinking about using outside funds, discuss your borrowing needs and options with your lending institution. Many financing possibilities are available - from personal loans and lines of credit - to home equity loans and homeowner’s mortgages. 3. Look for a professional renovator For appropriate service and high-quality results, hire a professional renovator. Click on “Find a Member” on the GVHBA website for a list of member renovators in the Greater Vancouver area. Ask family, friends and neighbours for recommendations. 4. Choose your contractor Once you have acquired names of a couple of professional renovators, interview them. If you have plans and specifications, have the chosen renovators provide you with a proposal. If you do not have plans already, ask the renovators to provide you with a proposal and a budget for a design/build project.

5. Check references Don’t omit this step just because you are too busy or “they seem like the right person for the job.” Ask the contractor for a reference list and a recommended list of suppliers. Call the Greater Vancouver Home Builder’s Association as well.

TANKTECH ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES

6.Work out a contract Don’t automatically take the lowest bid. Sometimes low bids turn out to be the most expensive in the end. Even the simplest of jobs should be outlined in writing, because the contract is the basis of understanding between you and your renovator. Before signing a contract, read it carefully. Are you satisfied with the description of the work to be done?

• TANK REMOVAL • METAL DETECTIONS • TANK LOCATING • VAC TRUCK SERVICES • SOIL TESTING • SOIL REMEDIATION

7. Plan how you will live during the renovation Careful planning can greatly minimize the inconvenience of living in the midst of a renovation. Talk to your renovator about the schedule of work to be done and how your daily routine might be affected. Discuss your expectations of the work crew and determine the work environment. Does the crew need access to washroom facilities, water or electricity? Decide which areas of your home are off limits. It is a good idea to let your neighbours know you are going to be renovating.

604-328-1234

8. Establish a good relationship with contractors A good working relationship is a vital ingredient in successful renovation projects. Mutual trust is essential. Keep lines of communication open at all times. Expect a brief report on the progress of your job at regular intervals. Be available to make decisions when they are needed so work is not held up, perhaps costing you more money. Don’t hesitate to bring your concerns to the attention of the renovator. 9. Try to stick with your first choices Once work is underway, changes should be kept to a minimum. The details of your project, described in the contract, down to the finishing touches, form the basis of both the price and the schedule of your job. Changes could affect both significantly. Your GVHBA member renovator will attempt to accommodate any alteration in plans, as long as you accept a possible delay in completion and/or a change in price.

EbytobattleClarkagaininPt.Grey NAOIBH O’CONNOR Staff writer

L

awyer David Eby has resigned his position as executive director of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association to challenge Premier Christy Clark as Vancouver-Point Grey’s NDP candidate in next year’s provincial election. The B.C. NDP announced in a Nov. 9 press release that the deadline for filing to run as an NDP candidate in the West Side riding was Nov. 8. Eby was uncontested. The acclamation will be confirmed at an NDP nomination meeting at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 6 at St. James Community Square Hall. Eby ran against Clark in the riding’s 2011 byelection, losing by only 595 votes. “It’s going to be a very different race this time for a couple of reasons — the first being that we have a lot more time in terms of opportunity for Ms. Clark and I to debate the issues of interest in the community and I’m not a mystery to the people of Vancouver-Point Grey any longer,” said the 36-year-old, who’s lived in the riding for the past year and a half. “I’ve met a ton of people and I have a much strongerconnectionnowtothecommunitythan I did when I ran during the byelection.” Although Vancouver-Point Grey is an affluent riding, it’s also home to a more transient population of renters and students. If elected, Eby said he sees himself as an MLA who would be very connected to the community. “The kind of person you’re going to see at

the farmers’ market in the morning on Sunday, for example, or that you’re going to find in the constituency office,” he said, adding the downside of having a premier as your MLA is at loss of accessibility on local priorities. Eby predicts another close election in the riding and said he isn’t taking the election for granted even though the Liberals’ popularity has fallen. “It’s a very well-educated community. It’s a very informed community and they’re going to be scrutinizing the Liberals, and certainly both me and Ms. Clark very carefully, so I look forward to convincing them that they should give me a shot.” Eby said education, including seismic upgrading of schools and class sizes, and the Broadway transportation corridor are among his priorities. He also cited concern about the justice system in light of his work with BCCLA, and the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, which the B.C. NDP opposes. The last time the NDP won Vancouver-Point Grey was in 1991 when Darlene Marzari was elected. Prior to Clark landing the seat, former premier Gordon Campbell held the riding for four terms before resigning in 2011. “Without a doubt my biggest challenge is going to be Christy Clark. She is a formidable opponent. She is very bright and she has a lot of power behind her both in terms of being the premier and being able to make policy on the fly,” Eby said. noconnor@vancourier.com Twitter: @Naoibh

Pursuing the elusive balanced budget

B

ritish Columbia Liberals will be spending a fortune over the winter to boast about their economic record, and one of the key items is the upcoming balanced budget. But after a couple of hours of debate in a legislative committee this week about accounting standards, it’s clear people should suspend judgment on budget claims for a while yet. Balancing budgets, or at least trying to, was the cardinal tenet of B.C. Liberal rule for the first seven years. It got sidelined by the economic meltdown in 2008. But a key part of the Liberal ad blitz is that they are “on track” to get the province out of the red ink. It is scheduled to happen when the budget for the upcoming fiscal year is delivered in February. The provincial election is May 14. A balanced budget — years ahead of key competitors like Ontario and Alberta — is the launch pad for the government’s re-election campaign. But the final independent pronouncement on the current state of the books - balanced or otherwise - won’t come until the public accounts are released in July. That includes auditor general John Doyle’s verdict on how the books have been kept. And there is the potential for trouble. It arises out of Doyle’s penchant for issuing qualifications about how the Finance Ministry keeps the books. He has done so several times in the five years he’s been on the job, and each one includes a recalculation of what the numbers would look like if the government did it his way. He’s continuing a tradition in the office: 13 of the last 17 audits of the government’s books have included qualifications. The arguments over his reservations are esoteric ones. They have to do with how gas-well royalties are handled, or how the Transportation Investment Corp. is treated on the government books. Doyle has his preferred method. Experienced professionals in the ministry have theirs. So far, the auditor general’s recalculations have had the effect of changing the bottom line by varying degrees, but not the essential outlook. Last year, for example, the government stated a $1.8-billion deficit. The accumulated effect of the changes Doyle suggests would have added $520 million, making the deficit $2.3 billion, by his reckoning. But a deficit is a deficit is a deficit, so the changes don’t get much attention. What is different next year is the margin of error. Finance Minister Mike de Jong’s last update shows the February budget is going to be a close call in terms of balance. Slumping natural-gas prices mean less revenue for B.C. And the tightness applies to the current year as well. So what if the government’s bottom line cited in February turns out to be significantly worse when Doyle reports on it in July? Ask the NDP how that works out. Former premier Glen Clark’s government tabled a “balanced budget” in April 1996 and said the fiscal year just closed was balanced as well. Then he called an election two hours later and boasted about NDP budgeting prowess through the campaign. After winning, they admitted in July the books weren’t balanced after all, in either year, and the controversy dogged them for years. Apart from the thin margin for error, there’s another factor working against the government. Doyle told the committee if errors identified by the audit aren’t corrected, they are re-calculated the next year. “So you end up with a snowballing effect over time where you have very, very significant adjustments,” he said. The ongoing argument is getting to some veteran Liberals. After some exchanges over Doyle’s version of how royalty credits should be booked, Liberal MLA Kevin Krueger said: “I think it’s nonsense.” It’s normally a constant exchange of views between the Finance Ministry and the auditor general that never gets much attention. But every four years, an election crops up between the time the budget is presented and the time the books are formally closed on the fiscal year that ended a few months previously. It intensifies the interest in the topic. And this year, there’s a lot less leeway than usual when it comes to making claims about performance, based on the numbers. It’s the main reason given for the idea of moving election day to the fall, rather than the spring. Voters would have a budget in front of them that’s been signed and certified as the straight goods. lleyne@timescolonist.com

ommercials lie, and this is not in serious dispute by anyone with a functioning neocortex. That new spray cleaner will not transform your house into an architectural magazine spread. Beer does not make busty women magically appear. Anything with half the calories tastes like molten carpet underlay. But the worst offender, I’ve decided, are car commercials. A few car commercials fall on the moderately truthy side of the ledger. If the commercial shows you how to fold down the rear seats, or how durable the door panels are, or how the airbags work, the commercial is selling you on something real. It’s also almost certainly selling you a mid-sized sedan or minivan, a low-priced, unpretentious people-mover. But these are not most car commercials. Cast your mind back to your last trip in a car. Did you pour yourself into a leather bucket seat, smooth back your (full, not greying) head of hair, thrill to the roar of the engine, and pull out of the driveway of your gleaming white mansion overlooking the Pacific? Did you then whip onto a completely deserted stretch of brand-new blacktop and test your car’s handling by screaming through a series of thrilling curves, while eagles soared majestically overhead? No? Congratulations, you are a real person, and not a car commercial accessory. The luxury/sports car version of the car commercial fantasy is probably the most common, in use for decades. There are a couple of interesting variations that have come into play more recently. The pickup truck commercial has been following its own narrative road. There’s a reason Dodge gets Sam “Sounds Like a Cowboy” Elliott to narrate their commercials. It’s the same reason he also does voice-overs for Coors and the American Beef Council. Truck commercials are all about hauling massive lumps of stuff through rugged landscapes. Look at that Dodge/ Ford/Chevy dragging an entire California redwood out of the Grand Canyon! Even the herd of wild horses running past in the background looks impressed! The bigger your truck, the bigger your, um, you’re really manly! Then there’s the small city car commercial. These are unabashedly aimed at twentysomethings, usually pitching brightly coloured hatchbacks. Possession of one of these bonbons of a vehicle makes poppy upbeat music begin playing, and all your friends suddenly appear and pile into the car and everyone will drive to a lake and jump in and then back to the city and it’s night now and everyone’s wearing cool sunglasses and everyone’s smiling and laughing all the time. And I really think being 22 looks much more tiring and frantic than I remember it being! I never understand the part of car reviews where the writer feels obliged to tell you whether it’s “fun to drive” or not. For most people, 99 per cent of driving is commuting, dropping kids off at various places, getting groceries, and cursing the price of gas. Your average drive involves very few parties, chances to test the manufacturer’s claims about zero-to-sixty times, or opportunities to herd cattle on the open range. And unless you drive for a living, your car spends about 20 to 23.5 hours a day just sitting, passively depreciating in value. I’d like to propose a Realism Guide for car commercials. In the future, no matter what the car, you must show an ordinary person attempting to park at a busy mall, being stuck behind a bus picking up passengers, and trying to find a radio station that’s not playing an annoying song. mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

USE BIBLE FOR HISTORY, NOT RELIGION To the editor: Re: “Holy texts, free stuff and lessons in critical thinking,” Oct. 31.

I am going to make a suggestion that neither side in the discussion regarding including the Bible in the school curriculum will like. Yes, the Bible should be included in schools, but not as a religious text. The Bible has been central to western civilization for millennia. A knowledge of its contents it absolutely vital, if someone is to understand and appreciate the history of Europe and the Americas, not to mention the Middle East. The Bible has also been such a major influence on art, literature and film, that they cannot be properly appreciated without some knowledge of the Bible, anymore than a rainbow can be appreciated with your eyes closed.

ROBERTSON AMASSES 70,000 SINA WEIBO FANS IN FIRST WEEK BOB MACKIN Contributing writer

M

ayor Gregor Robertson is on China’s state-censored answer to Facebook and Twitter. But his name is being phased out of the packaging for the juice and smoothie brand that gave him business credibility. Robertson opened an account on Sina Weibo at the end of October and appeared to amass more than 70,000 fans in the first week. It took Robertson four years to attract 28,000 followers on Twitter. But how many of those who added Robertson to their Weibo fan list are real people? A user posted a message on Robertson’s Weibo page on Nov. 4 indicating that 95 per cent of the accounts were “zombie” users and included a screen grab as evidence. The users had no avatars (a

small graphic beside their user name) and many of the accounts had little, if any, activity. “Why so many zombie fans?” said a translation of the post by a user, whose handle translated to @CanadaHomes. Robertson spokesman Braeden Caley downplayed the fake accounts and claimed they were new users themselves.“Afast-trendingaccount like the mayor’s is often picked up by a few ‘bots’ (automated accounts) that are known (to be) used for spam purposes, but that would amount to an extremely small proportion,” Caley said via email. “The exact same phenomenon often takes place for fastgrowing and verified Twitter accounts. As a new user with verified status and a fastgrowing following, the mayor’s account was also prominently featured by Weibo on the list of accounts that are highlighted as suggestions for

Mayor Gregor Robertson added Sina Weibo to his social media presence last month. new Weibo users to follow.” Robertson co-founded Happy Planet Juice Co. with Randal Ius in 1994, but only

Ius’s first name appears on the newly redesigned 2-litre boxes. Under “Randal, cofounder,” the label says “in ca-

hoots with sunshine and the fruit fairy.” The slogan above says: “We make food and juice that makes you smile. It has to do you good and taste great — that’s Happy Planet.” The old labelling, still on the single-serve, plastic bottles, is signed “Gregor” and “Randal” the “Happy founders,” under the mission statement: “to astonish your taste buds, nourish your body, unite you with the best sources of food and drink on this planet, and grow a progressive business from which happiness flows.” Ius remains with the company as vice-president of business development. The decision to remove Robertson’s name was made by Happy Planet general manager Rex Sheehy, who joined 16 months ago. “As a non-actively involved person there’s no point promoting Gregor on our packaging,” said Sheehy. “If people go to anyone for comment, there’s no point going to

Gregor because he hasn’t got a clue. As far as what’s happening in the business, Randal does.” Robertson left Happy Planet in 2005 when he won election as the NDP MLA for Vancouver-Fairview. He was elected mayor in 2008 and re-elected last fall. One of Ius and Robertson’s early Happy Planet backers was Renewal Partners, the venture capital fund run by Joel Solomon and Carol Newell, who are also key financial backers of Vision Vancouver. In October 2011, Robertson told the Courier that he holds less than 10 per cent of Happy Planet shares and claimed he receives no dividends. Happy Planet closed its Vancouver office in a 950 Powell St. warehouse in February 2011 and is now headquartered in Burnaby. Its juice and soup products are made and warehoused in Richmond and Delta. 2010goldrush@gmail.com twitter.com/bobmackin

INGRID STEENHUISEN’S FAMILY HAS LIVED AT LITTLE MOUNTAIN SINCE 1957 CHERYL ROSSI Staff writer

I

n her bid to stay at Little Mountain, Ingrid Steenhuisen had repeatedly noted her 79-year-old mother, Toni, has lived in social housing there since 1957. She’s been in the same unit since 1964. So why has her family lived there so long? Steenhuisen first made the news when she was born as part of a set of triplets in 1957. One sister died after a week. When newspaper readers learned the family suffered the shock of triplets, the loss of a child and were about to be evicted because the city had discovered they occupied an illegal basement suite, help arrived in diapers and information about social housing at Little Mountain. Her father, who was born in the Dutch West Indies, worked cleaning train cars for Canadian Pacific. Her mother didn’t work outside the home. The Steenhuisens produced two more kids over the next five years. The family visited the Netherlands for seven months in 1962 and considered moving there. But staying would have meant mandatory military service for Steenhuisen’s father, Dick. The family moved into Steenhuisen’s threebedroom townhome in 1964. Steenhuisen’s mother has been in hospital and then residential care since October 2009. Steenhuisen remembers her parents considering renting to own a home in Coquitlam during the 1969-1970 school year, but it didn’t work out. Her mother bore her seventh and final child, Tina, in 1971. Her record-setting 11pound, 10-ounce baby was delivered by caesarean and the stitches ruptured, causing health problems for eight years, according to

Ingrid Steenhuisen made local news when she was born in 1957 as one of a set of triplets. Steenhuisen. Steenhuisen and her “twin” moved out of Little Mountain in 1977 to complete a year of military service in Ottawa. Steenhuisen’s father suffered his first stroke in 1979. Within 15 months, he was struck by two more and could no longer work. “Mom tried on a couple of different occasions [to work outside the home],” Steenhuisen said. “Doing the work wasn’t the issue, it was everything at home.” One grandson moved in for a year, Steen-

huisen’s youngest sibling returned and another grandson moved in while he attended Vancouver Community College. Steenhuisen’s father died on his birthday in 1999. Her mother suffered a brain bleed in 2000 and in 2001, a stroke. In the meantime, Steenhuisen started experiencing health problems in 1989. She joined the waiting list for a one-bedroom at Little Mountain in 1992 and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1995. When her mother was classified as being “over housed” with

too many bedrooms in 2003, Steenhuisen returned to Little Mountain and moved in with her nephew and her mother so her mother could remain in place. Steenhuisen said two of her siblings spent short stints of their adult lives in social housing. One’s a renter, four are homeowners and one is dead. B.C. Housing reports the average length of tenure in its directly managed social housing buildings is 5.8 years. The largest proportion of the 2,844 households it reported on, 43 per cent, occupied this form of housing for one to four years. Factors for length of tenancy include household income levels, whether residents occupied housing for families, seniors or people with disabilities, children leaving home, the location of a building and other housing options in that market. “There’s this old stereotype that the type of people who need affordable housing are on welfare, alcohol, drugs and n’er do wells, etc. I spent a good number of my early adult years working with the military, serving my country, volunteering since the age of 11 serving my community,” said Steenhuisen, who noted she has received a Lower Mainland Good Neighbour Award and a Queen Elizabeth II jubilee medal for her volunteer work. She saw many single mothers raise their children at Little Mountain and then move into the seniors building there. Steenhuisen said the 2006 Census reported 64 per cent of families at Little Mountain were working families and the other 36 per cent were seniors and people with disabilities. “Did I ever foresee that I would be in a position where I would be on disability?” she added. “Hell no. Nobody ever does.” crossi@vancourier.com Twitter @Cheryl_Rossi

Hops and scotch combine at annual spirits festival MICKI COWAN

Contributing writer

I

t started 16 years ago with a group of people who wanted to promote their love of whiskey and beer. Now, their idea has grown to include nearly 8,000 others for a week’s worth of activities all centred around that same love. The event is the Hopscotch Festival, a yearly celebration of brews and spirits to be hosted at the PNE and other venues until Nov. 18. This year, it includes 6,000 members of the public and 1,500 brewers, distillers and members of the trade. But the festival is not just about people who love booze, it’s about those who appreciate the taste and culture surrounding finely produced liquor. “It’s all about the love, the art of these products,” said Hopscotch Festival director Adam Bloch. “It’s education. If people are coming to drink for the sake of drinking, they’re wasting their money.”

Adam Bloch, president of the Hopscotch festival, says the event is about the love and art of brews and spirits—not guzzling booze. Taste is something Marcus Von Albrecht understands well. He’s a long-term member of the B.C. Chef’s Association and creator of Vancouver-based XFour vodka. His vodka, which will be featured at Hopscotch, was inspired by the need for a quality Cana-

dian vodka. After a disappointing search around the world resulted in finding the only worthwhile vodkas had mafia and corruption connections, he decided to make it himself. Three years later, he makes award-winning vodkas in B.C., us-

ing ingredients from around Vancouver whenever he can. Of note is his XFour Xoxolat Chocolate Vodka Martini, made with dark chocolate from chocolatier Xoxolat on Burrard Street. “It’s made from 100 per cent single-plantation cacao, sweetened with organic honey from the Fraser Valley, homemade vanilla, espresso extract and finished with XFour vodka,” said Von Albrecht. For him, the festival is one aspect of creating an experience surrounding the product. Furthering along the idea of experience, the festival features educational opportunities. These include tasting sessions at the main event, the Grand Tasting Hall Nov. 16 to 17 at the PNE. There, festival-goers will have the chance to taste 350 different products from 109 vendors to find a scotch or spirit that suits their taste. Bloch said this helps people make the right choice when purchasing a more expensive bottle. “It’s an expensive game. You can’t just close your eyes and pick

whiskey off the shelf for $100. This festival gives people the opportunity for people to taste the products before they go to the store so they know what they like before they go and buy it,” said Bloch. The $50 admission fee comes complete with a tasting glass. For beginners to tasting, Bloch said anything goes as long as taste, scent and sight all come into play — observing the colour and taking in the scent being particularly important. Hopscotch also offers beginner’s crash courses in whisky and beer, as well as seminars hosted by internationally renowned producers. And sessions that pair food to a particular beer or whiskey are available, too. Bloch sees the expanding audience for finely crafted alcohol as a contributor to the festival’s growth and success, and hopes that trend continues. “Scotch has demographically changed.

DOWNTOWN

Vancouver Friends For Life Society is holding its 19th annual Art For Life Fine Art Auction to raise funds in support of the complimentary services the group provides for individuals with lifethreatening illnesses such as HIV/AIDS and cancer. This year, Art For Life is showcasing a collection of 80 pieces of fine artwork donated by some of Vancouver’s top galleries and artists, including world-renowned artist Andrew Salgado, whose art from a previous year earned the highest-grossing piece at the auction. The evening will also feature performances by Vancouver’s very own Inner Ring Circus and Mary Zilba from the Real Housewives

of Vancouver. (I hope Jody shows up.) Organizers hope to raise more than $150,000 for the society. The auction takes place at CBC Studio 40, Nov. 17 with a preview from 6 to 8 p.m. followed by a gala and auction until 11 p.m. For ticket information, visit artforlife.net.

PNE GROUNDS Before visiting a Disney location for the first time in my life this past May, I had no idea how many childless adults frequent such kid-oriented destinations. Prior to the trip, I would have promoted this next event for the kids, but I have a feeling some serious pincollecting couples will be wandering around as well. Disney on Ice’s Dare to Dream is described as the princess event of a lifetime, with beauty, spirit and sparkle. Rapunzel, Tiana and Cinderella star in this allnew ice skating production. Fans can relive memorable moments from Tangled, The Princess and the Frog, and Cinderella as a cast of worldclass skaters brings the romance of these films to life. Dare to Dream runs Nov. 21 to 25 at the Pacific Coliseum, 2901 East Hastings St.

Opening night tickets start at $12. For tickets, visit pne. ca, charge by phone at 604280-4444 or at the venue box office.

KITSILANO The Museum of Vancouver recently launched a retail line with two goals in mind: to raise funds for its special exhibition and school programs and to allow the world a tiny glimpse into its massive archives, most items which never see the light of day. Some of the items for sale include neon collection magnets, coasters, key chains, Smilin’ Buddha T-shirts, greeting cards, bus scroll pillows, 1920s travel brochure beach bags, Aristocratic coasters, Cascade beer glasses and Cascade beer T-shirts. A line of woven rugs is also available for sale, including the Streetcar Scroll, with retails for $1,850, and the Riot Board, modelled after the inspirational messages scrawled on the sheets of plywood used to cover windows downtown smashed during the 2011 Stanley Cup riot, which sells for just under $7,000. Due to a lack of space, the items are not for sale at the

museum but can be found at specialty retailers across the city. For a complete list, visit museumofvancouver.ca. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: @sthomas10

COMMUNITY ACTIVISM, CREATIVITY ALIVE AND WELL IN MOUNTAIN VIEW

MIKE KLASSEN

S

oon my wife and daughter will mark 10 years since we have resided a halfblock off Fraser Street. Like so many who have settled in this neighbourhood – dubbed Mountain View because of its proximity to the Vancouver cemetery – we feel privileged to be a part of this community. We benefit from the close access to transit, fine public schools, places to dine, shop and play at, and of course, good neighbours. Though I had lived all over the city, what immediately attracted me to Mountain View was the community activism. We had barely emptied the moving van when we heard about the struggles our neighbours had faced to make the streets safe here for families, and welcoming to newcomers. Tapping into the spirit and creativity of community was something envisioned by the CityPlan initiative, which city council adopted in 1992. I could see our new neighbourhood would not only provide an opportunity to get involved, it looked like it could be fun, too. We worked hard to mark Mountain View on the city’s map. Neighbourhood cleanups were practically like parties. We met to plan annual activities such as community BBQs, applied for neighbourhood matching grants and organized safety patrols. We combatted graffiti with

of us living nearby do not know what this change will ultimately look like. Where, for example, can we expand public space in proportion to the increasing numbers of new residents? As housing costs rise, can we make raising a family here as attractive without the luxury of a backyard? Reviving CityPlan might help us to answer questions like these. Admittedly, asking citizen stakeholders to design their communities does have its risks. But the experience in Vancouver proves that we can benefit from a bottom-up approach to planning neighbourhoods. And the best part about it for those who get involved, it can be a whole lot of fun.

Mountain View residents joined together to combat graffiti by painting a large mural on a building at Fraser and 26th. Stories” place-markers that allow you to interact with your smart phone. The lesson of Mountain View is clear: give communities the resources they need to shape their destiny and to help cities evolve. These

creative place-making concepts, preached by Jim Diers in Seattle and Dave Meslin in Toronto, underlie the “radical” ideas behind the 20-year old CityPlan initiative. Today, however, you can barely find any mention of CityPlan on

the city’s website (helpful link: http://bit.ly/vancityplan). As a result of these community improvements and other factors, new high density developments are coming to Fraser Street. Yet those

city-provided paint supplies stored in my garage, and by painting empty walls with attractive murals. The community also collaborated with the city on a unique trafficcalming project that used old railway ties as curbs. To stay connected, our volunteers erected bulletin boards, maintained community email lists and eventually created a website that I have maintained since 2004. Lately, our “Vancouver Mountain View” Facebook group passed 100 members. Mountain View helped to establish a new city category for street banners — “the neighbourhood society.” In 2011, we persuaded a bottom-line conscious housing developer to ante up thousands of dollars to help pay for new banners. We recently pushed the digital envelope by creating the “Fraser Street

K

vetching is a big part of the job description here at Kudos & Kvetches, but in the grand scheme of things, we have to admit we don’t really have anything too serious to complain about. While the office coffee leaves much to be desired, our newsroom printer is only slightly more cooperative than HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey, and there’s the inevitable career anxiety that comes with working in the newspaper biz nowadays, it’s not as if we’ve ever had to storm a beach at Normandy, stop genocidal warlords, commute to work via crash-prone Sea King helicopters or been made to walk around in public wearing berets. We do, however, have huge respect for those who have, which is why we were dismayed to learn the Costco in Abbotsford cut down the time war veterans could sell Remembrance Day poppies in the store to just four days this year from the customary two weeks. It’s hard to even imagine the thinking behind the decision. Is management bitter that Tim Hortons was given an outlet at the Canadian Forces base in Kandahar and Costco wasn’t? Do they perhaps feel poppy-hawking veterans somehow impinge on the exclusive, members-only vibe that sets Costco apart from other big box stores? Did head office in Toronto confuse Abbotsford with Abbottabad and figure their local customers wouldn’t want Canadian military members hanging around? Do they prefer not to be reminded of how meaningless their own corporate careers are by comparison or did they need the extra space to store a new shipment of Band of

Brothers on Blu-ray? Another possibility is they were hoping to somehow curry favour with the current prime minister. The Harper government recently announced it was closing nine Veterans Affairs offices across the county, instead expecting war vets — many of them elderly — to somehow find answers to their questions online or by using a computerized phone tree, and is currently involved in a class action lawsuit with soldiers over privacy breaches and benefit clawbacks. It also came to light this month that a federal burial fund intended to help former soldiers in need has rejected more than two-thirds of all applications since the Conservatives took power in 2006. On the plus side, we at least feel a bit better about having to again buy several poppies this year to replace the ones that invariably fall off.

MOVEMBER BLUES Is Movember just a ruse? Sure, it’s for a good cause — raising funds and awareness for men’s prostate health. But the stiff upper lips at K&K have a sneaking suspicion that the bumper crop of nose caterpillars stretching their fuzzy tendrils across dudes’ faces these past few weeks is just an excuse for many guys to tap into their primitive, Barney Miller-loving subconscious and grow moustaches without shame. At least that’s our co-worker’s opinion after she noticed a ghastly hair-horseshoe framing her husband’s kisser and terrifying their two young children last week. She’s quick to point out that her hubby’s not raising any money for charity and as far as showing support for hairy co-workers or raising office moral, he works from home. So grow it where ye may, gentlemen. But let it be known, some of you aren’t fooling anyone with that moustache, except yourself. k&k@vancourier.com Twitter: @KudosKvetches

UBC’s CiTR celebrates 75 years of making waves MICKI COWAN Contributing writer

B

ack when it first started in the 1930s, UBC Radio, now known as CiTR, was a lively place. And they’ve kept up that vibe now for 75 years. The independent campus and community station turns 75 this week and will be celebrating with a birthday shindig complete with live bands, as well as a weekend studio re-acquainting for alumni and other social events. They’ll be celebrating a history that includes the beginnings for interviewer and entertainment personality Nardwuar the Human Serviette, the birth of Mint Records, radio broadcasters and countless bands. CiTR station manager Brenda Grunau says although she feels relatively new after four-and-a-half years with the station considering its long history, it still feels good to know how far they’ve come. The station started as “a pile of students” in 1937 producing a weekly program that was broadcast on CBC. Soon after, UBC Radio programs began being wired, not on radio waves, to residences around campuses and in the Brock Hall student union building. That’s how UBC Radio alumni Alan Newberry remembers his years involved with the station in the late 1950s, when he produced a weekly 15-minute show called UBCDigest. The light news show, consisting of interviews with key figures at the time and information about the university, was recorded and sent to 13 stations around the province. It was also heard across campus. Although he didn’t go on to have a long-term career in radio, he worked alongside radio greats like Dave “Big Daddy” McCormick, who has worked in radio in Vancouver, Seattle and California, and won several broadcasting awards. Newberry was also a contemporary to journalist great Allan Fotheringham at The Ubyssey, UBC’s student newspaper. According to Newberry, although their station was mostly made up of bits and pieces donated from other radio stations in Vancouver, the atmosphere at RadioSoc, as it was known then, was perfect for breeding radio geniuses. But more than that, UBC radio had a culture designed for it. “You had a bunch of people there who were so committed, people who probably had from a young age a drive to work

CiTR station manager Brenda Grunau.

behind the microphone,” said Newberry. “We showed up early and left late at night and were there on the weekends. It was a bunch of people who were obsessed with radio who were supposed to be going to classes at the university.” At 75 years old himself, and holding several degrees, Newberry is not afraid to admit he didn’t attend many classes at the time. Like so many others, radio was his number one priority. Grunau says a lot has changed since those old days. The station moved off the old tube system and got its own FM signal in the 1980s. Now it has a yearly membership of 300 and nearly 20 community and student staffers. With permanent staff, she said it’s no longer the case that students have to devote every waking hour to the station, as Newberry experienced back in the ’50s.

“People joke that people in the past would major in CiTR and not complete their degrees… they were too busy putting out radio,” said Grunau. They’ll be an opportunity for those old CiTR graduates to have a radio reunion as part of the birthday celebrations as well, and a chance for those alumni to come back on the air and produce their old shows again over the weekend. Grunau says that’s the part of the celebrations she’s most looking forward to — hearing about the old days from those alumni. “There are a lot of crazy stories.”

ebecca Blissett remembers growing up with a pool in the backyard of her family’s South Surrey home, but the thing sure wasn’t used much. Usually, because the pool was so darn big and difficult to keep clean, the water was an unattractive dark-green colour. Blissett and her family moved into the house when she was 13. “The pool that came with the house was apparently the cause of divorce for the previous owners,” Blissett said. “The husband had won a small lottery and used the money to build a huge pool in the backyard.” So, rather than brave swimming in the bug-infested backyard pool, Blissett and her fellow teen friends would gather at the cheerier public pool up the road. This is where Blissett’s fascination with swimming pools began. This week, the pro photographer and Courier contributor reveals a series of scenes from outdoor public pools as part of her first exhibit, Pool Life, at Visual Space Gallery, from Nov. 15 to 17. The exhibit includes 20 of her intriguing images, all shot on film, plus two lightboxes. Blissett shot the photos at three Vancouverarea pools over the past couple of summers, after venturing to one of them with a friend. Several of the photos were featured in a Courier cover story called “Pool Players” written

This past summer, my friend saw the same lifeguard at New Brighton [pool] from 15 years ago. They’re a throwback to another time.

—Rebecca Blissett

and photographed by Blissett this past July. “I was struck by the pool scene — everybody crammed in together on the cement decks,” she said. “There are the regulars who’ve been using the pools for years, and nothing much seems to have changed over the years. This past summer, my friend saw the same lifeguard at New Brighton [pool] from 15 years ago. They’re a throwback to another time.” Blissett is busy on the photography scene these days shooting band portraits (for album covers and publicity purposes), concerts and fashion.

he Hamber faithful filled the house at Magee Thursday night and cheered their Griffins senior boys volleyball team to a second city championship in two years. Ranked No. 8 in B.C. heading into the Vancouver public school final, the Griffins defeated the unranked Magee Lions 25-21, 25-23, 25-19 in three close sets packed with power shots and dramatic defensive saves typical of high school volleyball in Vancouver. Griffins head coach Darren Chan said the team wanted a decisive victory heading into the AAA Lower Mainland and, hopefully (he added), the B.C. championships. Eric Hamber finished fifth in the province last year. “The guys learned a little bit about being mentally tough from last year,” he said. “This year they wanted to come out and be strong all the way through and play one point at a time. They did just that.” Griffins power hitter Kevin Li was

tremendous at the net, and Magee’s Kashtin De Sauza and Kavan made decisive kills. Both teams got dirt under their nails, digging up spikes to keep the ball alive. The teams’ supporters flashed handmade signs. They screamed with every point and each time a play was kept alive. The Griffins built a lead in the third set and finished the game with six unanswered points. On the final point, the Griffins six-foot-five setter Aleks Borisov unexpectedly tipped a pass over the net to catch the Lions

off-guard. Magee responded with an attack of their own. The Griffins defended and on the winning play, Borisov went for the same surprise tip a second time. Instead of a soft touch, he spiked the ball for a decisive kill to win the game. “If the pass is there, I’ll always try to do that,” he managed to say before a squealing fan wrapped him in a sign that read “Bulgarian Sensation.” “One of my teammates gave me that nickname in Grade 9 and it just stuck,” he said. Magee’s co-coach Norman Jay said the Griffins are a tough team to battle. “They’re a strong team. They’ve got a really good coach and they change things up every single time we play them,” he said. “I think the score is more indicative of how we played rather than the set count — they were tight for all three sets. It would have been nice to push them to four, take them to five and maybe even win it but they were definitely the better team today.” mstewart@vancourier.com Twitter: @MHStewart

SENIOR GIRLS CITY CHAMPIONSHIP GOES TO THE WIRE IN FOUR SETS MEGAN STEWART Staff writer

T

he David Thompson senior girls volleyball team will beat you with the strength of its bench. It’s deep, sure, but the Trojans are dangerous because they’re loud. They shout, cheer, clap and scream on the court and from the sidelines. They don’t stop all game, and on Thursday night at Kitsilano, they drowned out the much more hushed Point Grey Greyhounds to win the city championship by a slim edge 25-23, 21-25, 25-23, 27-25. “It was a very stressful match,” said the No. 1 East Side Trojans head coach Nelson Yu. “Throughout the whole game it went back and forth.” Like the stealth horse they’re named after, the Trojans burrowed into the confidence of their opponent, a much taller and more experienced Point Grey that entered the game weakened by injures. “They wanted it more than [we] did,” said the Greyhounds coach, Zach Mason. The Hounds were No. 1 on the West Side. “We struggled to pass the ball through the match consistently. They out-worked us.” Four of the Greyhounds starters are taller than David Thompson’s tallest player, said Yu. The coach prepared the Trojans for this challenge. “Playing against a tall team is always intimidating. They have a bigger block jump and just a longer reach in general, but throughout the season I had already taught my players about situations where we would be playing against taller teams,” he said. “I still had to make some last minute

ers who measure over six feet. But the tall team was grounded by injuries. They were without a middle hitter and blocker, which moved their attack to the back row and played to the Trojans’ advantage. This adjustment was effective, but didn’t compare to their typical power at the net. In the fourth and final set, the Trojans went on a 6-1 run down the stretch and Yu was feeling optimistic his team would close down the Hounds. “At this point I was confident that we had this wrapped up. PG is a great team and they fought back hard and pushed it to 25-24.” The Hounds had a one-point lead and were serving the ball for set-point to force a fifth and deciding set when Yu went to his bench. “I was out of timeouts and all I could do was be positive and support my players and trust them to do their job,” he said, “and they did.” The Trojans won back the serve and Yu subbed in Christina Chan, who nailed two aces from the service line to win the game 27-25. “At the beginning of the season, their goal was to win cities,” Yu said of the Trojans. “I’m really proud of them for accomplishing this, but it would be a great experience for them to go to the provincials. To qualify for that will be our goal.” David Thompson heads to the senior girls AAAA Lower Mainland tournament next week as the No. 1 Vancouver seed. The top three finishers advance to provincials. Point Grey represents Vancouver as the No. 1 public school at the Lower Mainland AAA tournament next week at Little Flower Academy. mstewart@vancourier.com Twitter: @MHStewart ®

The University of B.C.’s Brandon Bonifacio (in blue) was named a CIS championship allstar.

T-birds win soccer title

T

he University of British Columbia Thunderbirds added to their record success Sunday in Quebec. The T-birds defeated the Cape Breton Capers 1-0 to win the 43rd Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) men’s soccer championship at Telus-Université Laval Stadium. The win marked a 12th Sam Davidson Memorial Trophy triumph for the Thunderbirds, eight more than any other university program in Canada. UBC dominated throughout the tournament, outscoring their opponents 8-0 in total, including a 4-0 quarter-final victory over the University of New Brunswick on Thursday and a 3-0 shutout of host Laval in Friday’s semis. The T-birds end the season without a

single loss in conference play (11-0-3), the Canada West playoffs (2-0) and at nationals (3-0). Steve Johnson, a fourth-year striker from Tsawwassen, scored the only goal UBC would need in the eighth minute and was named game MVP. Teammate Gagandeep Dosanjh, the Canada West player of the year from Abbotsford, was voted championship MVP after scoring a four goals in the tournament, including two against UNB and two more versus Laval. “Two good teams today, it’s a shame somebody had to lose,” said UBC head coach Mike Mosher. “I’m really proud of my boys and the way they battled today and throughout this tournament.” The Capers only directed one shot towards the T-birds’ net in the first 45 minutes.
