Old Plaza 500 Hotel may turn into rental suites SANDRA THOMAS Staff writer


he former Plaza 500 Hotel and Convention Centre on West Broadway will likely be converted to rental apartments. In an email to the Courier, Nancy Eng, communications coordinator for the City of Vancouver, confirmed an application by development consultant Brook Pooni Associates to convert floors three to 17 into rental units has been approved by the city subject to conditions. If approved, the second floor will also be converted — from hotel use to office space. The iconic property, kitty corner to city hall, was home to the Plaza 500 for decades but closed several years ago. It was later announced the property would become part of the Indigo chain, operated by InterContinental Hotels Group, which also manages Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza hotels. An Internet search of “Hotel Indigo Vancouver” resulted in dozens of mentions, including an “official description” on the popular website TripAdvisor submitted by “the hotel.” “Located in the heart of Cambie Village, one of Vancouver’s trendiest, fastest-growing neighbourhoods the hotel is steps away from the Canada Line and minutes from downtown Vancouver and the Vancouver International Airport… From the locally-inspired art to the oversized beds with plush bedding and spa-inspired showers, Hotel Indigo Vancouver is designed to reflect the local culture, character and geography of the surrounding area while the IHG brand hallmarks ensure consistent and reliable service…” the description reads in part.

The TripAdvisor page also includes colourful photos of guest rooms, but an attempt to book a room led to a Hotel Indigo webpage offering the message “Page Not Found.” While there’s plenty of information readily available about the hotel online, attempting to speak to a real person about the property’s future is a different story. A phone message left for Francie Schulwolf, vice-president of corporate communications for InterContinental Hotels Group, wasn’t returned. Neither was a phone messages left for Alfredo Perdomo, listed as financial controller on the Plaza 500 Hotel website, or an email to corp. A phone call to the hotel was answered by a man who refused to answer any of the Courier’s questions and who also insisted there is “no head office.” “I’m just here doing paperwork,” he said. In response to a phone call from the Courier, an employee at Firefly Fine Wines and Ale located in the bottom of the empty hotel confirmed the owner is Azim Popat, but refused any further comment. The Courier attempted, unsuccessfully, to reach Popat by email and phone. A land title search completed through B.C. Assessment Online, states the $8.5 million property is owned by Yaletown-based Yorkson Investment Company Ltd., “attention Florence Chan.” An Internet search showed the address included on the report matched one for PFC Management, which shares the same phone number and where Chan answered the phone. Chan denied having any knowledge of the Plaza 500 property. The Courier was unable to reach Chuck Brooks of Brook Pooni Associates before press deadline.

wo of the four people behind a bold but failed attempt to revive the Waldorf Hotel as a cultural hub may have to sell their homes. “May is an understatement,” said restaurateur Ernesto Gomez, who said Monday he and Waldorf Productions partner Thomas Anselmi face selling their homes to cover company debt. “I’m actually luckier than some of my partners because I do have Nuba, which is a solid business,” said Gomez, referring to the popular Vancouver restaurant chain. “But my partners are not as lucky as I am.” Anselmi said debt accumulated in the first year by the company was being paid out of profits on a payment plan. “So at this point, with no profit coming in, that debt will not be able to be serviced and some of it will become personal debt,” he said. The two directors of Waldorf Productions are repaying Canada Revenue Agency, a bank and a union, according to Gomez. Anselmi said neither of them was on the payroll of the company, which leased space from the Waldorf Hotel. Waldorf Productions was moving “hundreds of thousands of dollars” worth of equipment from the hotel Monday morning, including gear from music instrument and equipment dealer Long and McQuade. “It’s stuff that’s actually sort of threequarters paid off, so it’s kind of sad,” Anselmi said. Waldorf Productions announced Jan. 9 that it would vacate the Waldorf Hotel this month because the property is being sold to developer Solterra Group and the production company couldn’t operate on the offered week-to-week lease.

Investors have lost their money—Waldorf Productions CONTINUED from page 1 City council voted to place a 120-day protection order on the hotel property Jan. 15 to determine the heritage and cultural value of the site before any possibility of demolition. Waldorf Productions reopened the hotel on Halloween in 2010. The company claims $1.6 million was sunk into creating a cultural hub.

Anselmi said the money came from investors, a bank and savings he and Gomez had built up. He wouldn’t say who invested how much. “The investors have lost their money, as we all have,” Anselmi said. Anselmi returned to Vancouver from Los Angeles when he and his wife wanted to have a child. He said a mutual friend in-

troduced him to hotel owner Marko Puharich, who sold the Waldorf to Solterra. “From day one, it was sort of a partnership,” Anselmi said. “The hotel had been losing money for a long time and it had been financed by the beer store. So the basic feeling of the whole thing was if the hotel could stop costing money, then the family would be much bet-

ter off than they were at the moment.” He added: “It’s hard to describe the familial warmth that existed before all this money got involved.” Courier columnist Allen Garr wrote sources at city hall told him Solterra paid $15.4 million for the property, which is almost double the 2013 assessed value of $7.9 million.


Anselmi says scarce and costly liquor primary licences make starting a new venue prohibitive. He said liquor licenses are sold for $1,000 a seat. “[For 200 seats], that’s $200,000 before you do anything, before a hammer has been lifted,” he said. “Plus you need a fixer to get [the licence] and move it and figure that out, so let’s add $20,000 on top of that, $25,000, maybe, who knows. And this is, again, be-

fore any investment has been made in anything the public will enjoy.” He said switching the liquor and food primary licences between floors cost Waldorf Productions $25,000. He added Waldorf Productions received a oneday suspension on its food primary license last fall because people danced in the restaurant on Halloween.

Media, public attention greeted city’s new planner



with Naoibh O’Connor


rian Jackson’s appointment as the City of Vancouver’s general manager of planning and development last summer generated an onslaught of news stories and profiles. He replaced Brent Toderian, who was fired last February from his job as the city’s director of planning. Jackson, 58, had been Richmond’s acting general manager of planning and development and he’s also worked in Ontario, California and Nevada. “It’s a bit unnerving for somebody who’s worked both in the private and public sector,” he said from his city hall office earlier this month at the start of his fifth month on the job. “But in the public sector, the appointment of a planning director or senior staff person was never the subject of media interest or scrutiny. So I just couldn’t believe they would be interested in something like that.” Jackson attributes the attention to Vancouverites’ fervour for urban affairs and architecture. “There’s a lot of media interest, but there’s also a lot of the public that follows these issues,” he said, noting the increased scrutiny doesn’t affect how he works. “I carry on my job professionally, to the best of my abilities and in terms of saying what I think when it’s

appropriate. I’ve always operated under the guidance of current council policy and I don’t think it’s changed the way I do business at all, [but] it’s funny to be recognized on the street. When I’m walking down the street some people say, ‘Oh, you’re Brian Jackson.’” That a senior-level bureaucrat is, at times, recognized speaks to the fact development matters have captured the public’s interest in unprecedented ways and helps explain the launch of this column. Neighbourhood Dissent was also the Courier’s Newsmaker of the Year for 2012, in the wake of community protests against development targeted at city hall. As reporter Mike Howell wrote in our Dec. 12 issue: “At the root of dissension was development. The ruling Vision Vancouver council is governing at a time when new singlefamily lots are non-existent and the population is increasing. They favour building up instead of out, creating office space for jobs around transit hubs and squeezing affordable housing onto an already dense land mass.” Jackson said he thinks some people didn’t have a clear understanding of the type of change that could be coming and that the city needs to do a better job communicating more specifics about what future development could happen in neighbourhoods. “We have to have a conversation with the community about growth — that the easy areas to accommodate future development in the city for the population that’s coming as Vancouver grows have been taken up. Now the decisions with respect to where and how much growth is happening are harder,” he said. “So we have to look very carefully at the existing communities and the

goals, objectives and plans that have been developed. But we also have to take into account that growth is happening in Vancouver and we need to take a very careful look at where we want that to occur. So we need to engage the people, certainly through the planning process — the area planning process much more, and more thoroughly than perhaps we’ve ever done before.” Developers, he added, also want more certainty with respect to rules by which they can or cannot develop. This column will reflect perspectives of all those involved in development — from residents to politicians to developers.

Teen educates peers on becoming a boy CHERYL ROSSI Staff writer


nneke Oskam took two days off high school last year before she returned as a boy named Cory. During those two days, the vice principal at Britannia and Maria Foster, the school board’s anti-homophobia and diversity mentor, met with the Oskam’s Grade 9 peers to explain that upon his return, Cory would use the boys washroom and change rooms and was to be addressed with male pronouns. Oskam gave a presentation about supporting transgendered youth at a Dare To Stand Out conference at Gladstone secondary Monday. “It was actually one of the first presentations that was full,” Oskam said. He said 30 students, including transgendered and gender non-conforming youth and supporters attended, along with a parent and a principal. “I embrace the thought of helping others and educating people so that younger people and other people who are going to transition later don’t have to answer those questions.” Oskam first played girls hockey outside of school and then switched to boys hockey. He had to get a ruling from Hockey Canada to allow him to use the boys’ dressing room. He has continued to play hockey in the Britannia Hockey Academy. Oskam said the bullying he faced wasn’t bad. “In kindergarten, I didn’t fit in at all,” he said. “When I would play sports with

the guys in Grades 4, 5, even 6, it would be like, you’re a girl and you can’t play, but then they realized I was actually good.” Oskam’s family had school officials educate his classmates when he started taking testosterone. His mother Nicole Seguin said her child defied gender expectations from an early age. “Even with toilet training, like age two-and-ahalf, when she went to the store to pick big-girl underwear, [she] picked boys underwear, wanted Superman, Batman underwear,” she said. Seguin noted a child can be distressed by developing the characteristics of a gender with which they don’t identify. She urged parents with gender-confused children to get their kids on medication that blocks the onset of puberty to give them time to receive therapy and support to make a decision. “So then they don’t need surgery later if they decide to transition,” she said. “Blockers are reversible and everything goes back to status quo.” Seguin encouraged parents to avoid trying to fit their kids into a box. “They’re going to be who they are,” she said. Oskam’s presentation was part of the Dare to Stand Out conferences organized by the nonprofit Jer’s Vision, which was founded by Ontario student Jeremy Dias. He faced extreme discrimination in high school after he came out. At age 17, Dias began a legal case against his school and school board. At 21, he won Canada’s second largest human rights settlement.

When you need us most…

ith the May 14 general election less than five months away, the B.C. Conservative Party has yet to announce a single candidate for any of Vancouver’s 11 electoral districts. Kristy Fredericks, the party’s communications director, says they hope to run candidates in all 85 provincial ridings save for Delta South, where incumbent MLA Vicki Huntington is running as an independent. She said the party is going through the red tape for potential office-seekers but admitted they are still looking for an unspecified number of contenders in Vancouver. David Hutchinson, who ran unsuccessfully in Vancouver-False Creek in the 2009 election, was the party’s sole candidate across the city. “There are still a few vacancies but we are actively recruiting,” said Fredericks. “It’s just part of the process. As people come through the system, there is a little bit of a backlog right now with so many candidates coming through at once. It’s just a matter of our committee, who are all volunteers, getting through all of the paper. We have a 42-page application and they have to go through that for each one.” The party has a total of 10 candidates con-

firmed — five in the Interior, three on Vancouver Island and one in Northern B.C. along with party leader John Cummins running in his Langley home riding. The B.C. Conservatives entered a total of 24 in the last election. The closest it came to winning a riding was in Boundary-Similkameen, where Joe Cardoso came in third with 20 per cent of the vote. The century-old party briefly had a seat in the current legislature after Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen quit the Liberal Party and crossed the floor to join them last March, but six months later he resigned his party membership in protest over Cummins’ leadership and sits as an independent. Fredericks said applications have been filed in more than 40 ridings that are being looked at by the candidate review committee. Nomination bids will take place in ridings where more than one person hopes to represent the party. “Quite often if there is more than one, there will be a ballot,” Fredericks said. “In the Interior, we had a couple of three-way battles. Basically once they get approved, they have to send out a notice to all the members in their riding of when the nomination meeting will happen. In the next month and a half you’ll see a lot more nomination meetings happening.”

news Monster trucks roar into B.C. Place SANDRA THOMAS Staff writer


hey have names like Northern Nightmare, Grave Digger and Captain’s Curse. And thanks to movies like Disney’s Cars, they have a fan base encompassing toddlers to seniors. The Maple Leaf Monster Jam Tour roars into B.C. Place Jan. 26, with 12 massive trucks taking part in the dirt-flying, car-crushing action. The Maple Leaf tour is the Canadian leg of Monster Jam, a monster truck circuit crossing North America. For those of you out of the loop, a monster truck is a pickup modified to include wildly oversized wheels and suspensions. Cam McQueen, the 2012 Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle Champion, told the Courier most monster trucks have a 66-inch wheelbase, are 12-feet wide, weigh in at about 12,000 pounds and boast up to 1,500 horsepower.ToputthatintoperspectiveaHummer sport utility vehicle has less than 250 horsepower. McQueen added the trucks typically cost between $200,000 and $250,000. According to McQueen, the monster truck motorsport, which today includes jumping over and crushing other vehicles, evolved out of early “redneck” games, such as tractor pulls and mud bogging. “It’s always been about having the most powerful vehicle and who has the biggest toy,” said McQueen during a phone interview from his home in Kelowna last week. “But now it’s

Place. evolved into more of a legitimate sport.” McQueen said the sport has become so sophisticated and popular with all walks of life, selling out a stadium like B.C. Place in a city as urban as Vancouver is commonplace. “Urban centres like Vancouver are our biggest

shows,” said McQueen, who added the sport’s appeal to children is a no-brainer. “It’s every child’s dream to drive a truck with huge tires and I’m lucky enough to be doing that.” He noted toymaker Mattel has a series of Hot

Wheels cast-iron monster trucks available for sale, so he’s often greeted at shows with kids clutching favourite model trucks. “Some kids will arrive with their entire collection,” he said. Besides McQueen’s Canuck-themed Northern Nightmare, Monster truck fans can expect to feel the noise from popular entries including GraveDigger,Max-Dwithitstricked-outDecade of Destruction body, Captain’s Curse, Double Trouble, Captain USA and Western Renegade, driven by Canadian Barry Parkin. In addition to the racing and freestyle competition, die-hard monster truck fans can arrive at the stadium early to enjoy the Party in the Pits pre-show experience. The party rewards fans with an opportunity to meet the drivers for autographs and photos. McQueensaidmeetingthefansisnotonlyone of the best parts of being a monster truck competitor, it also sets it apart from other sports. “That’spartofthewholedeal,”saidMcQueen. “The Pit Party is like a big meet and greet, where the fans get to meet the drivers up close and personal. You don’t see that at other venues.” The Pit Party takes place at B.C. Place Stadium from 3 to 5 p.m. and tickets are $10. The Monster Jam show starts at 7 p.m. Earplugs or ear protectors are recommended for children. (McQueen said earmuffs are a good option as well.) For more information and tickets, visit

Male premiers an endangered species

In just over two weeks, Ontario could become the sixth province or territory in Canada led by a woman. Think about it: Female premiers at the helm of almost half the country’s 13 provinces and territories, including the four biggest provinces. To put it in an even more compelling way, 87 per cent of the population would have a woman for a premier.” — Toronto Star Well I’ve thought about it, as instructed, and frankly, it scares the hell out of me. If you care about endangered species, you should be alarmed, too. I’m writing today to alert you to an emerging crisis faced by an animal that we have long taken for granted. It’s the male Canadian premier. In the space of a few years these magnificent wild creatures have lost huge tracts of their natural habitat. Mismanagement, poaching and the creeping menace of feminization have reduced their population by half. Some people shrug at this crisis. They say the mismanagement was the fault of the male premiers themselves. Cynics — regrettably many of them women — sneer: “Act like baboons long enough and you’ll end up on the same endangered list with them.” But that’s short-sighted thinking. Do we blame the orcas for continuing to swim around the same patch of water in which there are no fish? Of course not. We care about the whales and do everything we can to save them. So it should be with the male premiers. There was a time when they had free range over the entire country. With their healthy layers of winter fat and their expensive suits, they were a familiar sight for generations. Their natural aggression wasn’t always pretty to watch. Remember Meech Lake? Remember the rutting matches at first ministers’ conferences every year? But nature is sometimes brutal. And those territorial instincts ensured dominance over the harsh ecosystems in which they thrived. Gradually though, their numbers started to dwindle. The old silverbacks died off. Younger males took over, but didn’t have the staying power. They got preoccupied with dangerous sidelines: The HST in B.C., the Mafia in Quebec, the teachers in Ontario. Those are very high-risk behaviours for leaders. Even if they do have opposable thumbs. And increasing numbers of women started to encroach on their traditional hunting grounds. The females played it all innocent and supportive, early on. But when the males started to falter, they pounced. As I write this, the male premiers’ range is now reduced to a few isolated sanctuaries far from the power centres they used to control. Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, places like that. At the current rate, Canada is losing them at a rate of almost two a year. If the trend continues, the male premier will be extirpated within the decade. Imagine a country in which the male premier is extinct. Do you want to watch public policy formulated by leaders who build consensus based on cordial dialogue? Of course you don’t. It would be like hockey without fighting. Do you want to watch a bunch of female first ministers sitting around televised conferences respecting each others’ feelings? Where would that leave the news channels? You can act to avert this urgent crisis. By sending me money right now, on the following basis: • A $100 donation would buy a new pair of boots for a ranger, who would patrol what’s left of their habitat. The Harper government is complicit in the loss of these creatures through poaching. It dangles the prospect of ambassadorships and Senate appointments and the easily-distracted males sometimes just give up. Rangers could guard against further incursions. • A $1,000 donation would fund an education program for juvenile males. Some are growing up with no knowledge of their past entitlement. Weekend seminars would reawaken their natural sense of primacy and instill the drive needed to reclaim their place. • A $10,000 donation would bring Jane Goodall to Canada. Her lifetime of experience in Africa is badly needed here. If she can intuitively understand chimps, she help with the breakthrough we so badly need in understanding male premiers. The alternative is to do nothing. Follow that course and male premiers will be like pandas — adorable curiosities you only see in zoos, kept alive through breeding programs. I don’t want to live in that kind of world and I’m sure you don’t either.

Whatmakesa’hoodspecial? Friendsandfriendlyneighbours


ast week, the Courier published its first feature in a year-long series about Vancouver’s neighbourhoods, beginning with Mount Pleasant. Early responses suggest readers are as excited about it as we are. As we mapped out the series, our discussions touched on isolation, especially following Vancouver Foundation’s 2011 research that noted a high level of isolation and disconnection among Vancouverites. As I pondered the deluge of media coverage about the foundation’s findings and how lonely residents of this city are, I recalled a line in “The Paradox of Our Age” by an American pastor who wrote: “We’ve been all the way to the moon and back but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.” Dr. Bob Moorehead’s words are a reminder that Vancouver’s problems are not unique to this city. What large city doesn’t have lonely people? Acknowledging the issue is a start. But how we, as citizens, react to such information will be a reflection of our 21st century values upon which we will be judged. But in a city with a multitude of languages and ethnicities, whose values will dominate? In this space last Wednesday, I took a trip down memory lane and highlighted some neighbourhoods I’ve lived in — East Hastings, West End and West Point Grey (WPG) before I headed east again. As beautiful and well-kept as West Point Grey is, I knew I’d never own in that high-priced area and probably subconsciously thought I wouldn’t be a long-term renter there either. As I mentioned last week, I don’t recall meeting any neighbours for the 11 months I lived there. I can take partial blame for that. From WPG, I relocated to a house on East 21st Avenue at Ontario, which is in Riley Park even thoughIconsidereditMountPleasant.Neighbourhoodboundariesweremeaninglesstomethen, though I did stereotype certain areas — Kits for instance. Too much spandex, ponytailed girls in ball caps and now the uniformed Lululemon look. Riley Park boosted my mood. That the down-to-earth Liberty Bakery was a few blocks away on Main Street probably had a lot to do with it. It’s a cozy, unpretentious hangout — alone or with friends, inside or outside. It’s low-key, like me. I felt at home. Having a number of friends nearby was icing on the cake. The old house was uninsulated and falling apart, but it had charm and a large, south-facing front porch. During the 2002 Winter Olympics, I moved the TV outside and a group of us cheered on Team Canada in the hockey final. It sounded as if the entire neighbourhood was also tuned in. I liked it there. People on the streets said hello to each other. I said hello back. There were younger families with kids around. I saw myself putting down roots, but when I was ready to buy, prices exceeded my reach. During this time, however, I also got to know Gastown thanks to a boyfriend (now husband), who lived in an apartment on Alexander Street where I spent many a night observing the panhandlers, boozed up partiers, drug addicts, homeless, mentally ill and rats converging around party central near the Gassy Jack statue. His apartment offered him full view of the street action — some of it criminal. He had 911 on speed dial. I moved from the East 21st house into a small, top-floor suite in a walk-up on East 13th at Quebec Street — smack dab in the middle of where I wanted to be. When my boyfriend and I moved in together about a year later, we chose to stay in Mount Pleasant. He had tired of Gastown and began to love Mount Pleasant as I did. We found a place together on West 13th at Manitoba. And that’s where life really changed. Our daughter spent her first 10 months there. When we brought her home from the hospital, a friend had decorated our front door with a sign welcoming our new baby girl to the world. Having friends nearby helped me cope with a new baby. My partner and I soon decided it was time to buy. It was 2005 and the real estate market was in a frenzy. We spent $425,000 on a post-war bungalow on East 39th Avenue just off Victoria Drive. I didn’t know a soul in the area and the house needed a lot of work. Money was tight. I stayed home a lot. I got depressed. But I met two wonderful neighbours who shared stories of yore, including how Jones Park was once a farm, how people fished for salmon in a nearby stream and how a parade took over Vic Drive once a year. Those neighbours have seen massive change in Kensington Cedar Cottage as it morphed from an area of European immigrants to predominantly Asian. We had a second child, I started to make a few connections and enjoyed the amenities of the area, but I didn’t see us staying forever on East 39th — too much traffic, endless litter that made me angry (especially after spending hours picking it up only to come home from work to find more) and the newer, soulless Vancouver Specials across the street whose occupants couldn’t muster a hello despite my clean-up efforts on their side of the street. On weekends, we hoofed it out of the ’hood to the Fraser River, Spanish Banks or the North Shore. We would have stayed in the Kensington area had we found the right house on a quieter street. But my husband suggested we try the North Shore, where I was adamant I didn’t want to live. I didn’t want to give up biking to work. But we chanced upon a small house that had been on the market a few weeks that we couldn’t resist, so we moved. An American ex-boyfriend accused me of “white flight.” I laughed, but agreed the North Shore is very white indeed. Nature was a huge draw. We love our new home in the Seymour area. It rains more, but we have fantastic neighbours, wonderful community events, proximity to endless trails, excellent parks and fresh forest air. It’s a place where our kids can run around and be free — just like we both did as children. And maybe that’s what many of us want to replicate. In Vancouver, it’s certainly possible in most neighbourhoods. We just never found the right spot.



To the editor: Re: “Filipinos replace Irish in St. Pat’s pews, schools,” Jan. 18. Indeed, the Filipinos have replaced the Irish in the pews and schools of St. Patrick’s. Before, there were the McDonald, the Tonner and Kelly families. Now there are the Salcedo, Rivera and Ramos families. I thank Mike Howell for his article on Filipinos. I also thank Reverend Father Vincent Hawkswell for his kind words about Filipinos. He said “they are not exclusive, not ghettoish, they integrate beautifully without losing their own culture.” Filipinos are truly committed to the church, schools and neighbourhood not only in Mount Pleasant but in many communities in Canada.

To the editor: Re: “Taking responsibility for city litter,” Jan. 16. Excellent observations and suggestions, to which I would like to add. For a period of nine months, my partner and I (both over 65) walked every morning from our home on the sidewalk down two streets in south Vancouver. A distance of 1,850 meters, according to Map my Walk. The first day we collected two garbage bags worth of candy wrappers, McDonald’s take-out containers, bottles and beer cans, women’s underwear, children’s shoes, mittens and gloves etc. Then every day as we repeated the same route, we would collect a store plastic shopping bag full of the same items that


had been thrown out in the previous 24 hours. At first we were looked at strangely,butafterawhileaswe talked to the residents, we could see that certain sections would be much cleaner than other parts, reflecting the cultural background of the residents. And we had hopes that more people would take ownership of a section of their neighbourhood. We then went travelling for a few months, and now the streets look the same as before. We can only conclude that it will take a lot more of local residents’ initiative to have our city look like the most beautiful and liveable city it can be. Local fast food outlets that produce most of the litter could take a much greater if not a leading part in promoting a “clean living space” for us all. Anders Lonnqvist, Vancouver

••• To the editor: The profusion of litter on Vancouver’s residential streets and thoroughfares disheartens me, too. I also believe it’s not just the city, private businesses, labour unions and public institutions that are responsible for the cleanup. Everyone who lives, labours and shops here shares that responsibility. As a City of Vancouver Green Streets’ volunteer, whenever I work on South Hill’s Fraser Street gardens, people stop to say “thank you” or to chat. During those encounters, discussions often centre on litter, dirty sidewalks and dirty storefronts. Invariably people say, “Somebody should do something about it.” Well, each one of us is “somebody.” Each one of us can make a difference. We can voice our displeasure with merchants who don’t keep their premises presentable. We can teach our children not to litter. We can, like Mike Klassen,

take tongs in hand and spend some time cleaning our neighbourhoods, and encouraging others to do likewise. The City of Vancouver’s “Keep Vancouver Spectacular” program can help by providing tools, vests, gloves and garbage bags. Mike suggests our mayor and elected officials could lead school kids on cleanup campaigns, year-round, thereby reducing the likelihood those kids will grow up to be litter bugs. What a way to inspire civic responsibility and pride. Can you imagine what leading such a campaign would do for the reputation of the city, the mayor and council members?

POODLE ON A POLE CHANCE TO REBEL To the editor: Re: “Poodle art best suited to Yaletown,” Letters, Jan. 18. What is going on? Are we, in the magical kingdom of Main Street, so mesmerized by our $9 lattes and obsessed by our desires to purchase the next neo-vintage accessory that we cannot see the naked truth? Frankly, I am surprised and disappointed by our lack of rebelliousness. I thought the whole point was: the artist provided a blank canvas for this celebrated unique community to reclaim. I have a good idea what would have happened to that poor poodle if the situation was reversed. So, stand up you bohemian, riotous, creative people and do something. Go throw a knitted poncho on the dog or give it some black spots for Pete’s sakes. Isabel Ozanic, Vancouver

Bad to the clone HUM-DINGERS



xciting news on the medical front. No, there’s still no cure for dozens upon dozens of serious diseases — don’t be ridiculous. But, as reported in the Daily Mail, a genetics professor of Harvard School of Medicine claims he’s been able to reconstruct the DNA of Neanderthals from 33,000year-old fossils and hopes to clone one with the help of a lucky lady who would have no qualms giving birth to a cute and cuddly cavebaby. “We can clone all kinds of mammals, so it’s very likely that we could clone a human,” professor George Church said in an interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel. “Why shouldn’t we be able to do so?” Yes, why shouldn’t we be able to do so. Of course, cloning humans, let alone prehistoric ones, tends to be frowned upon in certain circles and, we’re fairly certain, illegal. But if Church is truly intent on seeing Neanderthals walk the earth, may we suggest he set up camp at the Shark Club during one of its Lingerie Lunches. Oh snap. Seriously though, the Shark Club’s chicken wings are nothing to shake your crudely made spear at.

According to the Globe and Mail, the federal government has set aside $60,000 so two universities can get to the bottom of a mysterious humming vibration emanating from the grungy shores of Windsor, Ont. Some have speculated that a re-opened steel mill on Zug Island, which sits on the Detroit River, is responsible for what’s been dubbed “The Windsor Hum.” More importantly, however, why hasn’t any bands named themselves The Windsor Hum or Zug Island yet? Seriously, those names are ripe for the taking. Closer to home, there are tons of landmarks we’re completely surprised and, frankly, disappointed bands have yet to appropriate. For instance, Mary Hill Bypass — now that’s a band name. We don’t even know where the Mary Hill Bypass is located, except near traffic congestion, but we know a good band name when we hear one. Yet there are local acts who would rather call themselves Tequila Mockingbird rather than Mary Hill Bypass. Just tragic. OrhowaboutMasseyTunnel?Surely,Massey Tunnel is way more metal sounding than half those Wizard-related bands out there. We can hear it now: “Oh man, me and Doug went to see Massey Tunnel down at Funky Winkerbean’s last night. The song “China Creek Bowls” from their album Beast Van made me almost crap my pants. Then we stuck around for Gregor’s Sporran, Great Northern Way and a messed-up set by Tim Stevenson’s Incoherent Mumbling.”

nyone who tunes into CTV after the Superbowl will see Vancouver playing itself. Two Vancouver-based production companies have banded together to create the new crime drama Motive, which premieres Feb. 3. “It’s an incredible city and we really wanted to show off the vibrancy of Vancouver as this dynamic, post-Olympic glory of a city of glass and vistas and incredible scenery and neighbourhoods, and that it’s a really word-class, cosmopolitan city,” said executive producer Rob Labelle of Foundation Features. “It’s just the perfect place to set it given that all of the producers live and work here.” He adds that with Vancouver often pretending to be another locale, be it Seattle or New York or Boston, it can be a challenge to ensure Vancouver’s distinct features get edited out. In the case of Motive, however, the city doesn’t have to pretend it’s something it’s not. “With the designer Don MacAulay and Mathias Herndl, who’s our DP [director of photography], we can shoot what’s before our eyes,” said Labelle, adding that Motive features Vancouver as a character in a “really dynamic procedural that we’ve turned on its ear.” Each episode begins by highlighting not only the murder victim, but also the killer. Detective Angie Flynn, her homicide team and viewers subsequently solve the murder mystery, uncovering how the crime was executed and why. Audiences will see a crime scene in Stanley Park with downtown glistening in the background on a clear night, the distinctive Vancouver Special houses of the East Side and hear real neighbourhood names. Vancouver has previously played itself in TV series that include Da Vinci’s Inquest, Continuum and Endgame. “Da Vinci’s Inquest was one of my favourite shows of all time, but it really resides so much in the Downtown Eastside. It’s a darker, gritty, almost cinema verite feel to it,” Labelle said.

Premiering Feb. 3 on CTV, Motive is new crime drama shot and set in Vancouver. “We’re playing it really real, as well, but we’re really opening up what our backdrop is and where we can go.” Motive highlights the city’s natural beauty alongside what’s new and shiny. The fictional Metro Vancouver police department is housed at what in reality is the Creekside Community Centre in the former Olympic Village. Other “cheats” include pretending a house in Deep Cove resides in Kitsilano. Motive stars Kristin Lehman, who acted in the AMC series The Killing, which was filmed largely in Vancouver but set in Seattle, and Louis Ferreira, from Stargate Universe. Other cast members include Lauren Holly from NCIS, Roger Cross (Arrow), Brendan Penny (The Assistances and Cameron Bright (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn). Labelle is the executive in charge of television with Foundation Features, which produced movies Capote, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Hard Core Logo 2. Foundation has teamed up with Lark Productions (Gastown Gamble, The Real Housewives of Vancouver) to bring Motive to life in association with Bell Media. Labelle feels fortunate for the support of the media giant, which commissioned the series Flashpoint, and of CTV. He has seen Vancouver’s film and TV industry slide into “serious decline” over the last seven years.

“[The provincial government is] misportraying what tax credit system is in B.C. and what it is in Quebec and Ontario. It’s not a subsidy. It’s not a hand out,” said Labelle, who argues credits that help draw productions to B.C. multiply benefits to other businesses such as dry cleaners and restaurants, generating more tax revenue for the province. “If something doesn’t change, it will continue to decline,” he said, adding Foundation Features prefers to shoot in Vancouver, where the company is based and where there’s a robust talent pool, but production companies like his need to consider their bottom line. But when Labelle isn’t sounding off about the dire state of the TV and film industry in B.C., this dual citizen of Canada and the U.S. and 15-year resident of the Lower Mainland sounds upbeat about seeing his adopted home looking fresh on screen in Motive. “It’s completely thrilling,” he said. “It’s a show of international calibre, so be able to put Vancouver front and centre is just icing on the cake.”

SPORT SHORTS ROORDA WINS GOLD FOR CANADA IN TEAM PURSUIT Vancouver cyclist Stephanie Roorda helped Canada open the 2013 track cycling World Cup season on a golden note, winning top place in the Women’s Team Pursuit in Mexico Jan. 17. The Canadians defeated the team from Ukraine to win gold. Roorda, who grew up in Alberta, races alongside Jasmin Glaesser of Coquitlam and Victoria’s Gillian Carleton. In a morning qualifying race, the Canadians posted the fastest time of the eight teams and led their closest competitor by four seconds. Roorda joins the trio after Carleton and Glaesser won Olympic bronze at the 2012 London Games. Tanya Dubnicoff, the Women’s Team Pursuit coach, said, “This season has been a short season and to have the team perform the way they did was excellent. They executed the ride like veterans. This experience will only help with our goal of continuing world class performances.”

The Vancouver Racquets Club hosted the 2013 Canadian Team Masters Championships on the weekend, drawing some of the country’s top squash talent to its courts near Hillcrest. Team B.C. 1 lost to Team Ontario in the final, which was a best-of-seven series between the two provinces. In the deciding men’s match, Ontario’s David Sly beat Vancouver’s Trevor Latimer in five entertaining and competitive sets. (Download the Layar app to your iPhone, iPad or Android phone or tablet and scan the image with his story to watch a video of the action.) Alberta finished third overall and the second team from B.C. surprised the field with a fourth-place finish. Must have been the home-court advantage. — Megan Stewart

s a role model, you couldn’t ask for better. Just days before the 2003 World Cup, which was only the third international soccer tournament for women, Andrea Neil was contemplating retirement from the sport. But at 31, she was also ready to lead. “When I was younger, there weren’t many older players to look up to. We were all about the same age and just learning the game as we went along,” she told reporters at the time. “So I’ll be trying to provide some guidance for the younger players.” She played another World Cup in 2007 and then hung up her boots. On Jan. 9 she took on her latest leadership role as the head coach of the UBC women’s soccer program. It caps a storied career. As a 19-year-old in 1991, she made her national team debut and went on to log 18 seasons and 132 appearances for Canada, including four World Cup tournaments between 1995 and 2007. When she retired after the World Cup in China, she was only one of two players to have hit the century mark of 100 games for Canada. She won two W-League championships in six seasons with the Vancouver Whitecaps, and was inducted to four halls of fame, including the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame in 2011. She is a UBC alumna and won a national championship as a Thunderbird in 1994, the year after she was named the university’s top female athlete. As a young player on the midfield line with Neil, rising soccer superstar Christine Sinclair idolized the older athlete.

Andrea Neil, seen here with Team Canada in 2003, was hired Jan. 9 as the head coach of the UBC women’s soccer team. But despite the great respect she enjoys from her peers, Neil says developing soccer at UBC will take patience. “You can’t build it all within the first two days, first weeks, even the first season,” said the 42-year-old soccer great. “You build something over the course of years.” Neil’s appointment as the Thunderbirds coach came on the heels of a controversial and embarrassing UBC mistake. The university announced another coach was hired one day before the job posting officially closed. That person, Marc Rizzardo, was forced to re-apply along with all candidates and Neil was hired three weeks later. Neil applied for the job three years ago but was not hired. Her supporters have lobbied to see her coaching the women’s program at UBC, not only because they believe she is qualified, but also because of her talent and effectiveness as an ambassador for the women’s game. “I felt that perhaps she should have been the last hire,” said SFU women’s head soccer coach Shelley Howieson, adding that Neil’s appointment is “overdue.” “I’ve known Andrea from when she came out of high school,” said Howieson, who has been with the SFU program since its start in 1988. “I’ve

always liked her even-handed personality and felt she would be suitable for a coaching position. I wish her luck.” This is Neil’s first head coaching position. She holds an ‘A’ coaching license from the Union of European Football Associations and was a Canadian national assistant coach. Neil, one of Canada’s most connected and respected athletes, wants to draw beyond her own personal resources to develop the Thunderbirds as people and players. “There’s a lot of people I’d love to work with,” she said. “I think there is a lot of capacity that is untapped. It’s an incredibly important thing to link past players who have paved the way for a lot of these current players.” Mentorship also happens within the team, said Neil, noting the difference between a freshman who just arrived in a new city to start university and the graduating player who is moving to a career that may keep her on the pitch or lead her away from competitive sport. “There’s an incredible sense of [giving] a great service to, in this case, women’s soccer,” she said. “I see a huge mentorship capability.”

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!
