Jim Caya, owner of Bulldog Demolition, is suing the owners of Plaza 500 Hotel at 12th Avenue and Cambie for $2 million in lost wages, supplies and damages.

Plaza 500 Hotel subject of growing list of lawsuits SANDRA THOMAS Staff writer

T

he head of Coquitlam-based Bulldog Demolition is suing the owner of the Plaza 500 Hotel on West 12th Avenue at Cambie for $2 million. Jim Caya is seeking $1 million he says are still owed in wages and supplies and a second million for damages. Caya said Azim Popat hired his company in February

2011 to remove 180 bathrooms and perform general cleanup, including carpet removal. At the time, it was announced the Plaza 500, located across the road from Vancouver city hall, would join the Indigo hotel chain. “But the first day on the site, in order to remove the carpets we had to remove the baseboards and that’s when we spotted the mould. The drywall was completely black with it,” Caya told the Courier. “And they had guests staying at the hotel right up until then. I’m surprised no one got sick.” See CITY on page 4

he NDP has now finalized all of its candidates running in Vancouver’s 11 electoral districts following a nomination held Sunday (Jan. 27) for Vancouver-Quilchena. Nicholas Scapillati, the executive director of the sustainable food non-profit group FarmFolk CityFolk, won the nod over schoolteacher Chris Moon to become the party’s candidate for the May 14 provincial election. It was the first nomination race in the NDP’s history in a riding famous for being a Liberal Party stronghold. Former finance minister and deputy premier Colin Hansen, who has served as Quilchena’s MLA since 1996, won more than three times as many votes as the NDP runner-up James Young in the 2009 election. Hansen, one of the architects of the controversial HST, is not seeking re-election again. Scapillati thinks all bets are now off for supposedly “safe” Liberal ridings. “I think that every riding in this province is open and I think the people of British Columbia want a change,” he told the Courier. “Colin Hansen did so well because he was the incumbent and over time you build up those strong numbers, but with a new Liberal candidate it will be different. People say the ‘orange wave’ is rolling into every corner of the country and now it’s rolled all the way into Quilchena, and hopefully that will be the difference in the next election.”

Scapillati believes protecting the environment is one of the biggest issues for voters and he hopes his record will speak for itself. He has a biogeography degree from McMaster University and has worked in the conservation field for nearly 20 years, including a stint as a researcher and project coordinator at the David Suzuki Foundation and serving as the executive director of the Musqueam Ecosystem Conservation Society. “I’ve worked in Quilchena for a long time, working closely with the Musqueam First Nation for 17 years, and I’ve done a lot of work on the ground engaging the local community in Dunbar, Southlands and Kerrisdale in protecting Vancouver’s last wild salmon stream [Musqueam Creek] that runs through that neighbourhood and also creating Vancouver’s first sustainable street, which is Crown street,” he said. “I’ve helped bring stakeholders together — the Musqueam, the city, the local communities, the Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club, the park board and GVRD — to get things done and I’ve done a lot of on-the-ground work in the community. I feel like I have connections there, I have a lot of friends and the community has given a lot back to me.” Scapillati will take on either former B.C. Liberal president Andrew Wilkinson or two-time NPA city councilor Suzanne Anton after the Liberals vote for their own Vancouver-Quilchena candidate Feb. 17 at Prince of Wales secondary school. afleming@vancourier.com twitter.com/flematic

He said at that time, Popat, who did not return the Courier’s phonecalls, was forced to hire Pacific Environmental Consulting to do an environmental assessment as required by WorkSafeBC. (Norman Richardson, senior operations manager with Total Safety Services, which owns Pacific Environmental Consulting, told the Courier he’s unable to comment on client cases.) “They immediately wrote up an order saying that anyone entering the building had to wear a hazmat suit and a mask,” said Caya. “The density of the mould was so bad that even non-hazardous jobs like carpet removal became hazardous. And that’s when the costs went up.” Caya said what started out as a $488,000 job escalated to $3 million over time as the company completed numerous projects. He said Popat stopped paying halfway through the project. He said after Bulldog placed a $1.5 million lien against the property, Popat called a meeting with Caya and the Canadian

Western Bank, which was financing the project at the time. Caya said in order to remove the lien, the bank paid the overdue amount to Bulldog and the company went back to work. “And we haven’t been paid since,” said Caya. Caya’s lawyer, Suzan El Khatib with Wiebe Douvelos Wittmann, explained Popat has placed $800,000 in trust with the courts. Once a decision is made on the case, which is scheduled for February 2014, that money will go to either the plaintiff or defendant. Caya is not alone. According to cases filed in B.C. Supreme Court, Plaza 500 Hotels Ltd. is named in 39 lawsuits starting from 1996, with 16 dated between 2011 and 2012. Last week Nancy Eng, communications coordinator for the City of Vancouver, confirmed an application by development consultant Brook Pooni Associates on behalf of Plaza 500 to convert floors three to 17 of the hotel into rental units

had been approved by the city subject to conditions. This week, the city told the Courier it is not aware of any complaints regarding the condition of the building, which would be evaluated during the building permit application stage. Caya suggested the city take a very close look at the building. He said as a way to save money, Bulldog was directed to cover the asbestos in the hotel with steel bars, to which drywall would later be attached. He said a structural engineer halted the project because it was deemed the building wouldn’t stand under the weight. “If they allow people to live in that building and it goes down in an earthquake, not only will it be a tragedy for those people, but the asbestos dust will contaminate that entire neighbourhood,” said Caya. “Even the mayor at city hall would end up with asbestos dust in photo Dan Toulgoet his lungs.” According to cases filed in B.C. Supreme Court, sthomas@vancourier.com Plaza 500 Hotels Ltd. is named in 39 lawsuits with twitter.com/sthomas10

Busy Insite forces addicts into alleys 12TH & CAMBIE with Mike Howell

Here’s a news flash: People continue to inject illegal drugs in the Downtown Eastside. Tell us something we don’t know, you say. But what if I told you not everyone shooting illegal drugs is using the Insite supervised drug injection facility on East Hastings. Yes, you say again, that makes sense since Vancouver Coastal Health estimates there are 12,000 to 14,000 injection drug users in the city, with more than one third living in the Downtown Eastside. Accommodating all those people at Insite, which only has 12 injection booths and is not open 24 hours a day, is obviously impossible; studies also indicate drug users won’t travel across town to use Insite. So where am I going with all these facts and figures? I give you Twitter. Being the switchedon social media reporter I’ve come to be, I read a tweet shortly before 6 p.m. last Thursday from @InsiteVan. This is what it said: “Currently 24 people waiting 35-plus minutes to shoot up. Open another #Insite!!! (countless leaving to shoot in alleys).” No matter which side of the drug policy debate you’re on, people shooting illegal drugs into their veins in a back alley is not a good thing.

So what is VCH doing about it? Not much, right now. In fact, there’s been no movement on this front since the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in September 2011 that Insite could remain open indefinitely. The discussion then was whether the court’s decisionwouldleadtomoreinjection sitesopening in Vancouver and across the country. So far that hasn’t happened, although groups in Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg are actively lobbying for facilities in their cities. Here in Vancouver, the health agency is on record of considering incorporating injection services into health clinics that provide other harm reduction needs such as needle exchanges. Before it adopts this model, the agency is first focused on ensuring the Dr. Peter Centre gets legal status to operate its three-stall injection site, according to Anna Marie D’Angelo, VCH spokesperson. The centre, which caters to people with AIDS, mental health issues and addictions, has operated its injection room since 2003 without an exemption from the feds. As I reported in 2006, the Vancouver Police Department wasn’t interested in shutting down the illegal facility, saying it wasn’t a threat to public order. So why VCH’s concern now? “If you have a [licensed practical nurse] or [registered nurse], they have to have insurance and you can’t be in an illegal milieu to have that insurance,” D’Angelo said. That didn’t seem to be a concern for the past 10 years. But I digress. More on this another time. mhowell@vancourier.com twitter.com/Howellings

Teachers ready to bargain

CLASS NOTES

with Cheryl Rossi

Negotiations for the next collective agreement for teachers will start sooner than expected. Instead of starting in March, bargaining will begin Feb. 4, with proposals exchanged no later than March 1, as agreed upon by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association on Saturday. The BCTF and BCPSEA will mutually appoint a facilitator to assist with bargaining from the outset. Both parties will equally share the cost of the facilitator. The BCTF and BCPSEA

will develop a common data study to reach agreement on the cost of items brought to the table and to work out what will be negotiated at provincial and local levels. Such harmony was not to be found earlier last week after Liberal Premier Christy Clark and Education Minister Don McRae announced a plan for a 10-year agreement with teachers on Jan. 24. The BCTF said the government’s proposed plan ignores court rulings that teachers have the right to bargain working conditions, including class size and composition. McRae said in a ministryreleased statement that the government expects to negotiate these issues. The government’s plan provides for a $100-million “investment fund” available in the third year of the agreement; a formal place for teachers to have a say on a new Education Policy Council with representatives from government, the BCTF and school board trustees;

indexing of public school teachers’ compensation to an average of other major B.C. public sector increases; and a new structured and transparent bargaining process. The framework allows teachers the right to strike. Teachers’ salaries and benefits would be on par with those of nurses, college faculty and government employees. The mix of wages and benefits would be determined through bargaining. The ministry sought submissions from the BCTF, BCPSEA, B.C. School Trustees’ Association, B.C. School Superintendents’ Association, B.C. Principals’ and Vice Principals’ Association and the B.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils in the development of the framework. The ministry would implement the framework following the May provincial election if all parties agreed to it. The collective agreement expires June 30. crossi@vancourier.com twitter.com/Cheryl_Rossi

Discovery Square renamed Art Phillips Park CENTRAL PARK

with Sandra Thomas

N

early a year ago, Vision Vancouver vice-chair Aaron Jasper brought forward a motion to change the name of the tiny green space on Burrard Street at Dunsmuir from Discovery Square to Art Phillips Park. The park board approved the proposal Monday night. Phillips was mayor of Vancouver from 1973 to 1976, at a time when the city was undergoing several major planning initiatives. Important milestones of that time include ending the plan to run a freeway through the city, converting the False Creek industrial area to an urban neighbourhood, revitalizing historic Gastown and creating the city’s property endowment

fund, development permit board and heritage registry. Phillips believed expanding parks and recreation services was a foundation for the livability of a modern city and in the early 1990s, city council and the park board cooperated on a number of significant development projects. They including parks in Champlain Heights, the redevelopment of waterfront at Charleson Park, and VanDusen Botanical Garden. Phillips was also personally involved in the creation of the park now named in his honour. Phillips coordinated eight surrounding landowners to make a donation towards creating a public park in this location. The $2.5 million purchase cost was shared equally between the city and those donors. In 2010, the city recognized Phillips’ contributions with its highest honour, the Freedom of the City award. A park board staff report says the name change will require updating City of Vancouver maps and signs, the cost of which are expected to occur within the budget. Changes to other maps and products will

Liberal comeback slips off course

S

omewhere at B.C. Liberal party headquarters there’s a recovery plan that charts a 15-point comeback in the polls en route to a victory in the May election. You have to wonder if the master plan makes room for the kind of week that ended last Friday. Monday — Boundary-Similkameen Liberal MLA John Slater brought a troubled, confused story to an end with news he won’t run again, either as an independent or a Liberal. The party had earlier referenced personal problems in the rocky relationship that had developed. So Slater bowed out with a blast at “smear and fear-based politics,” and the “brutal” experience that prompted him to say “enough.” The only plus for the Liberals in this is that, oddly enough, the NDP candidate dropped out the same day. Tuesday — NDP leader Adrian Dix unveiled a plan that would ban the kind of self-promoting saturation ad campaign that the Liberal government has been running for months at taxpayer expense. It’s a good idea in itself. And the plan keeps some focus on the outlandish cost and prevalence of the campaign. Also Tuesday, Surrey’s rejection of a casino favoured by the minister responsible for gambling, Rich Coleman, prompted intriguing fallout. Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg publicly rapped his colleague for intervening during the public hearings and complaining about the decision. “Surprised and disappointed,” he told the Peace Arch News. He’s not the only person surprised. Coleman is a powerhouse in Premier Christy Clark’s government and not one whom colleagues would take on lightly. There was a time when the Liberals hung together. Clark also announced an $11-million commitment to an Indian media conglomerate that will stage a televised Bollywood awards ceremony in Vancouver this spring. The idea is to promote B.C. as a destination to the Indian middle class. Based on government numbers, the show will have to pull 7,000 Indian tourists for this to pay off. Wednesday — Trouble broke out in another Liberal-held riding. The fracturing of friendships and long-term relationships became obvious in Abbotsford. Longtime Liberal supporter Moe Gill, whose plans to run were quashed when the party hand-picked criminologist Darryl Plecas, announced he’ll run independently. He’ll go up against cabinet minister Mike de Jong — his distinctly “former” friend — in Abbotsford South. He made the announcement citing the “great disrespect” with which he was treated by the party. It’s the team-building that gets you. Meanwhile, the Liberals formally abandoned the clumsy campaign to oust auditor general John Doyle, offering him a two-year extension. It was greeted with ominous silence. Thursday — Doyle slept on the offer, then responded. He not only rejected it, he eviscerated the Liberals who made it. He said the re-appointment process is “Mickey Mouse.” He said the Liberal MLAs in charge of it don’t know what they’re doing. And he said the MLA in charge — Eric Foster — should be removed because of unspecified remarks he made during an interview that suggested bias. He suggested the next government should make the decision and he plans to take his own sweet time examining his options. One thing that’s become clear over the years is that when governments take on independent special officers of the legislature, it doesn’t usually end well. Clark’s ambitious plan for a 10-year deal with teachers was also floated Thursday. The teachers’ union dismissed it completely, as expected. Demonstrating how obstinate the B.C. Teachers Federation is might have been part of the roll-out plan. But it was odd to see an idea that has some merit driven right into a wall that everyone could see was there. Friday — A quiet day. Not much to do but ponder an outfit in which a departing MLA decries his own team’s smears, another MLA raps a cabinet minister for meddling, a key organizer turns independent to run against his former friend and the premier finds $11 million to throw a party for an industry based 11,000 kilometres away. It wasn’t all bad news. They’ve found a way to stop the new Port Mann bridge from dropping ice bombs on toll-paying drivers. And they found $113 million to move Emily Carr University off Granville Island. But with under three months until campaign kickoff, it wasn’t a week in which the Liberals used the word “momentum.” lleyne@timescolonist.com

The birth ofVancouver’s 22 neighbourhoods

A

swecontinueouryear-longseriesprofiling Vancouver’s neighbourhoods, an obvious question comes up: How and when did these neighbourhoods come into existence? You might be inclined to believe the city drew up the boundaries about 100 years ago, but you’d be wrong — as I clearly was. Digging into the creation of Vancouver’s neighbourhoods has involved a bit of sleuthing. There is clearly some institutional memory loss, but luckily we have knowledgeable people living in our midst. I contacted Gordon Price, former city councillor and treasure trove of neighbourhood information, who sat on council from 1986 to 2002. He supplied nuggets of information, but suggested I talk to former NDP MLA Darlene Marzari, who sat on council in the early 1970s. She had even more information, but said Margaret Mitchell, a social activist who pioneered community development in Vancouver, was the person to contact. Mitchell, who later became an NDP MP from 1979 to 1993, told me about a man named Ernie Hill. The first official map defining the city’s neighbourhoods can be credited to Hill. He was a social planner working — not for the city — but for United Community Services, better known today as United Way. Neighbourhoods weren’t official until 1964 when Hill introduced a local area approach to planning in Vancouver to decentralize workers and coordinate services within 22 local areas. Hill’s criteria to establish the boundaries took into account the location of community centres, libraries, schools and post offices to create neighbourhoods that were manageable in terms of the planning and delivery of services. After extensive consultation, the boundaries he created have remained the same since 1967 when the city’s population hovered around 410,000. (As of 2011, the city’s population was 603,502.) Consistent boundaries enable the city to track demographics and how neighbourhoods change over time. But I asked Mitchell why the city didn’t take responsibility to define the neighbourhoods? “They weren’t interested in that,” Mitchell says. “They were only interested in getting freeways through the city and ruining neighbourhoods like Strathcona... [the United Way] assumed planning responsibilities in those days and then it eventually shifted over to the city.” Thatthedivvyingupofthecityintodefinedneighbourhoodscamefromthehead of planning at United Community Services shouldn’t come as a complete surprise, given the United Way has always played a role bringing together government, universities, advocacy groups and community leaders to bring about social change. Mitchell recalls Hill having a good a sense of humour, an ability to work with peopleatthegrassrootslevelwhilebeingasmart“decisionmaker.”“Heworkedatitfrom the point of view of bringing agencies together,” recalls Mitchell. “He was involved in the physical planning, not the neighbourhood involvement. That’s what I did.” Hill’s work supplied a geographical template for Mitchell’s work and helped coordinate funding and workers from different agencies. After surviving ovarian cancer in the 1960s, Mitchell focused her efforts on helping people to organize and improve life, particularly in the city’s poorer neighbourhoods and within social housing complexes such as Little Mountain, the city’s first public housing project. “The goal was to engage poor people, especially single mothers,” said Mitchell, now 87. “They were people with no voice but lots of potential but were not recognized because they were poor.” Mitchell published a 107-page “community development scrapbook” in 1975 titled Don’t Rest in Peace — Organize that looked back on almost five years of community development neighbourhood by neighbourhood until the city withdrew funding for area councils on the recommendation of the city’s social planning department. The “scrapbook” is gold mine of information for anyone interested in community building and what the city’s neighbourhoods were like in the early 1970s. Mitchell’s lifelong goals have always been to empower citizens, democratize services and create community. (You can read her life story in No Laughing Matter, which she published in 2008.) Four decades ago, her focus was empowering people living in poverty. The demographics of the city have changed considerably since 1970 and a newer challenge is to engage and empower immigrants who speak English as a second language or don’t speak English at all. It’s fairly common to hear people in Vancouver complain about certain ethnic groups failing to show interest in their neighbourhood or in community building. Does it really just come down to a language barrier? Of course not. Mitchell, however, thinks it’s a two-way street. “Maybe it’s longtime residents not interested in getting to know newcomers,” says Mitchell. “You always have to take the initiative. If only we could encourage that as a way of life.” Words to live by — no matter what language you speak. fhughes@vancourier.com

PARK BOARD EQUITY PLAN ILLOGICAL

To the editor: I am writing this letter with utmost fury at the park board’s plan to take full control of all community centres. I am a 19-year-old UBC student, and I taught French at the Kerrisdale Community Centre for two years. I received many testimonials from former students that my program is better than the Alliance Française — and I was only 16 years old at the time. According to the new agenda set up by the park board, I would be considered “unqualified” because I am not technically a licensed teacher, and my program would be cancelled. What the park board is trying to achieve is, in their terms, “equity.” But I’m not fooled. Their primary incentive is to make more money by cutting back some programs and firing many “unqualified” instructors. In what world is this supposed to make community centres better? Community centres are managing fine without any radical changes. I don’t know of one single centre user who is on the parks board’s side. Is that not good enough? I ask anyone reading this to consider this plan carefully. Many people will be seriously affected, especially those who are frequent users of community centres. I am all for equality, but I am also all for logic.

Main Street’s poodle still has readers barking. Instead of making unilateral decisions about neighbourhood art, the folks at City Hall, and their partners, should have a contest and ask people to vote on what they would like to see in their neighbourhood. Things more relevant to the history of the area would be far more apropos. We are the people who have to look at this stuff when we are out and about. Why don’t we have a say?

Anne Marie Goodfellow, Vancouver ••• To the editor:

A meaningless icon. The installation rising above Main Street has been a surprise and a disappointment. One wonders if this was

selected by a jury or a predisposed panel. The height above the sidewalk with the poodle looking down questions the choice regarding the ethos of Main Street. The cost carried by a project like this needs to be accounted for. Does the design have any relevance to Main Street? One has to question the process by which the artist has come up with this. Do a few visits up and down the street justify such a project? There is no clear meaning... only a self indulgent image masquerading as public art. We live in a time of irony. Sadly, the movement of art as radical ideas has fallen prey to the developer’s world. Varouj Gumuchian, Vancouver

news Longtime advocate for homeless retiring in May JUDY GRAVES STARTED WORKING WITH VANCOUVER’S HOMELESS IN 1970S MIKE HOWELL Staff writer

A

pioneer. It’s not a description that can be given to a person without an assuredness the tag is appropriate, that it fits. For Karen O’Shannacery, the executive director of the Lookout Emergency Aid Society, and Vision Coun. Kerry Jang, there is no doubt their friend is a pioneer. Her name is Judy Graves. She’s a pioneer, they say, because of her efforts way back when to act on behalf of the homeless and bring attention to a growing population on the streets. She’s the reason, they believe, that senior bureaucrats, politicians at all levels of government and community leaders are more in tune with the needs of homeless people in Vancouver. Now Graves, who’s in her early 60s, is retiring as the City of Vancouver’s homeless advocate. She announced Thursday that her last day on the job will be May 29. “This city is not going to be the same,” said O’Shannacery, who has known Graves since the 1970s. “Judy has been a tour de force in the city.” O’Shannacery pointed to the importance of her friend’s commitment to provide an on-the-street perspective in the dialogue on homelessness. “She really carved this path and, as far as I know, there’s nowhere else where someone did this,” O’Shannacery said. “There’s a number of other municipalities that do it now. But Judy was really the first and it was because she was driven by a passion and her unshakeable faith that nobody should be out there [on the street].” Jang, who is Vision’s primary councillor on the homeless file, got choked up when talking about Graves. He has relied on Graves since he was elected in 2008 to educate him with the latest information about homelessness. “She singularly cares about getting people off the street,” he said. “She’d

City of Vancouver homeless advocate Judy Graves pauses for a moment while making the rounds on the street in 2005. phone me and say, ‘We’ve got one.’ That would mean she got a person off the street into permanent housing.” Jang said he never saw Graves more happy than when she learned an anonymous couple agreed to donate $30 million to get people off the street. The money has gone towards redeveloping Taylor Manor, a former long-term care facility at Boundary Road and Adanac Street, into housing for 56 homeless people with mental illness. But it’s time to retire, Graves said by telephone Thursday morning from her downtown apartment, where she watched a homeless person return to his spot in an alley. “It’s a piece of my life, I had something to do, it’s almost done and there was just this sudden clarity and happiness about leaving,” she said, adding her decision was further confirmed after a recent meeting with a group of outreach workers from several non-profit agencies in

the city. “To see them digging in and some of them getting in-depth and becoming very creative and going beyond the boundaries of their job to get the work done, it was beautiful.” But for the city to get this point, where nonprofits and the city’s housing department are dedicated to providing solutions to homelessness, Graves had to push hard. In fact, caring for homeless people was never in Graves’ job description, as she was told by one of her former bosses in the 1990s. Around that time, more and more homeless people began to show up on the streets. As a member of the city’s tenant assistance program, Graves chose to go into the streets and talk directly to homeless people to get answers on the influx. “My boss told me this was your volunteer work, not your job,” she recalled. In the evenings and overnight, she continuedtowalkthestreets.Itwasn’t

until she submitted a report in the mid-1990stocitycouncildetailingthe homelessness crisis that her volunteer work became part of her job. Graves’ career with the city dates back to 1974 when she worked as receptionist for the Pine Street Clinic. From 1979 to 1991, she worked at Cordova House with people stricken with personality disorders, depression, schizophrenia and other mental illnesses. She applied that experience to her work on the street where in her gentle, disarming way, she got homeless people to trust her with their information to get them help, as the Courier witnessed in January 2005 during a tour of the West End with Graves. It was after a similar tour with Graves that former NPA city councillor Peter Ladner was inspired to write a song about her titled, “Angel of Broken Wings.” It includes the verse, “She gives out her number to suspicious stares,

she’s heard all the stories of how nobody cares, the angel of broken wings mending their tears.” Over the years, Graves has watched governments fail miserably on the homelessness file while others moved forward with positive change. She pointed to the 14 city properties dedicated to social housing — many of which are open —and the opening of winter shelters as good moves. The provincial government’s purchase and renovation of more than 25 single-room occupancy hotels also helped people find suitable accommodation. But,shesaid,there’sstillmorework to do. The city’s homeless population currently hovers around 1,600, with the majority in some form of shelter. About 200 are on the streets, according to the city’s last homeless count. With single-room occupancy hotels full and shelters turning away homeless people, new housing is crucial to reducingthestreetpopulation,Graves said. “Most cities in North America or Europe, if they had 200 people left in the streets, they’d find them housing in a heartbeat,” she said. When asked if she accomplished her goals over her career, she replied: “I would have liked to go with nobody left in the streets. But I can see now that, at this point, it’s just a few people’s choices which way it’ll go.” She went on to name the city, provincial and federal governments and residents. “We have enough goodwill in this city and we have enough money in this city that if people put their shoulder to it, we can do it in a heartbeat.” Graves said she has no immediate plans for her retirement but wants to spend more time with her family. The City of Vancouver hasn’t said whether her position will be filled after she leaves. mhowell@vancourier.com twitter.com/Howellings

YOUR RRSP CUE CARD BY DAVID WEST, CFA

A

t this time of year, Canadian investors are preoccupied with four key questions about their Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). My quick-take answers to these questions follow. At this time of year, Canadian investors are preoccupied with four key questions about their Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). My quick-take answers to these questions follow. 1. How much to contribute? Ideally, you should contribute your maximum allowed before the March 1 deadline. Your contribution is calculated as 18% of earned income to a maximum of $23,820 for 2013 ($22,970 for the 2012 tax year), plus any unused contribution amounts accumulated since 1991.

2. Go with RRSP or TFSA? Both are excellent vehicles that protect you from tax in different ways. RRSPs defer tax, and you get a tax deduction on contributions. TFSA investment growth and withdrawals are tax-free, but there’s no deduction on contributions. Much depends on your personal financial situation. If you can contribute the maximum for both, all the better. 3. How much do you need? On having enough at retirement, I’ve always been skeptical of any trite formulas (say, “70% of pre-retirement income”) or magic lump-sum goals based on presentvalue calculations. I do put some faith in the idea that if you contribute 18% of the previous year’s earned income (18% is the amount CRA allows for RRSP

contributions) every year, you probably won’t end up much worse off, relatively, than fellow citizens who do the same. From there, the differences in outcomes will likely depend more on how your contributions are invested than on how much you contribute in the first place. 4. Where to invest? Remember, an RRSP is nothing more than a container – one account among many where you can store your investment capital and just one part of your whole portfolio. When you’re deciding where to invest this year’s RRSP contribution, don’t forget all your containers, from savings cash in the bank to GICs in a trust company to your cash and margin accounts, plus all your registered accounts such as TFSAs and RRSPs, and those of your spouse. Lump them all together and figure out your current asset allocation before deciding where to go from there. Once you’ve got your overall asset allocation right, I would consider a quality equity mutual fund, such as the Dynamic Equity Income Fund, Series A, for an RRSP. The objective of this fund is to achieve high income and long-term growth of capital by investing primarily in equity securities that pay a dividend or distribution on a global basis. Keep these points in mind, and you can be sure of maximizing the value of your money. David West, CFA, FCSI, is a regular contributor to Fund Library, owned and operated by Fundata Canada.

Filing your taxes online saves time and is more secure

A

re you putting off the annual task of filing your tax return? With a little guidance it doesn’t have to be difficult and timeconsuming. This year for example, why not save yourself the headache and file online? Just think: no more broken pencils, no mountain of pencil shavings, and no waste bin full of crumpled papers. Even if you’ve always filed on paper, you’ll find that breaking your routine will save you time. Here are a few more benefits of filing online: FILING ONLINE IS FAST: It cuts the processing time of your return from up to six weeks to less than two weeks. Combine online filing with direct deposit and you could have your refund in your bank account in as little as eight days. Using direct deposit is also the quickest and easiest way to get your benefit and credit payments. FILING ONLINE IS SECURE: The Canada Revenue Agency, or CRA, uses the same high level of

does the calculations. No more worrying about missing out on credits, benefits, and deductions that you may be eligible for. Once you’ve filled out your forms using your software program, it creates a “.tax” file that you then send to the CRA through their NETFILE system. Once CRA receives the file, you’ll get a confirmation number and you’re done. online security that your financial institution uses to protect your banking information. YOU MAY FILE ONLINE FOR FREE: Find a list of certified online filing software and web services at www.netfile.gc.ca. The list includes free and paid options. FILING ONLINE IS SIMPLE: The certified software package does all the work for you. All you have to do is fill in the amounts, and the software

YOU MAY BE ABLE TO MAKE A PAYMENT ONLINE: If you have a balance owing, you may be able to use online banking to pay your tax bill, the same as you would your cable bill. Talk to your financial institution about online payments. If you need help, check out www. cra.gc.ca/getready for step-bystep instructions. Also, grab a copy of last year’s return—it will serve as a reminder of where to focus as you fill out your return for the 2012 tax year. Article courtesy www.newscanada. com.

You might not know it by the rockin’ photos, but SPRING AWAKENING is a musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s controversial play that “explores teenage self-discovery and emerging sexuality against the backdrop of a repressive 19th century Germany.” See what those crazy kids at Langara College’s STUDIO 58 do with this Tony Award-winning Broadway hit rock musical Jan. 31 to Feb. 24. , 2013.

swung high up in the underbelly of the Burrard Street Bridge. He’s airborne again in PHOTOG although his fictitious character Thomas Smith admits he’s afraid of flying. Strange, because Smith, as a “conflict photographer,” is constantly flying from Afghanistan to Libya, Syria, Haiti and Ivory Coast — wherever there’s a war. Boca’s Sherry Yoon and Dodge created Smith from interviews with four reallife photographers, one of whom, Tim Hetherington, was killed by the Libyan military in a mortar attack in 2011. In PHOTOG, Smith has been evicted from his New York apartment and has returned to the U.S. to clear the place out. He’s reluctant to move because in the midst of all the chaos and killing, his apartment is a refuge. With videos, stills, a videocam focussed on Dodge and sometimes on the audience, the show is outstanding in its use of technology. Dodge appears in the midst of metal scaffolding prickling with

lights and rigging. There’s a guy in the shadows constantly clambering — spider-like — shifting cameras, lights and guy wires. Everything is constantly in motion and it’s fantastic to watch. Despite how Smith’s stories are all interesting, they don’t, however, always advance the story but seem, at times, an excuse for more stunning effects. For me, the most interesting aspect of Smith’s stories is his inner conflict: what compels him

to photograph the orphaned, the dead and the dying? But the visual component is fantastic. And I did feel complicit: while Boca del Lupo was blowing me away at the theatre, others elsewhere are being blown up. Is there something I should be doing? —reviewed by Jo Ledingham joled@telus.net

ig news on the K&K home front. We just received our Telus Yellow Pages phonebook. As you read this on your tablet or smartphone, you’re probably wondering, people still use the Yellow Pages? Still, Telus’s delivery people felt the need to dump a stack of the irrelevant tomes directly on top of our stack from last year, which remains unopened and propped against our screen door. We’re not sure which is more outdated, having a screen door or a pile of plasticwrapped phonebooks welcoming visitors. In the past, we’ve left polite phone messages at computerized “customer service” centres and written polite emails to anonymous “customer service” representatives to stop delivery of the phonebooks. They promise to respond to our concerns as quickly as possible but never do. In fact, in the last five years, we have dumped forests worth of phonebooks in our recycling box, until we eventually grew tired of lugging the bulky things around and kept them on our porch to ward off any new phonebook deliveries. Apparently that doesn’t work either. The best part is that despite us living in a three-suite house, Telus — bless its generous heart — always sees fit to drop off at least half a dozen phonebooks. You know, in case one wears out from neglect.

BONO ON ICE

Sure the Vancouver Canucks have problems with second line scoring, finding a fill-in for injured Ryan Kesler, figuring out what to do with goalie Roberto Luongo and crossing the finish line in the Stanley Cup playoffs, but the organization has decided to put its energy into more pressing matters: finding a new intro song to replace U2’s “Where the Streets Have No Name.” For years, U2’s rousing anthem, which ominously begins with the lyrics “I want to run, I want to hide,” has pumped up the sold out crowds at GM Place and later Rogers Arena as everyone from Anson Carter to Jeff “the Brabarian” Cowan hit the ice. But the club is looking to change its tune, officially announcing on its website that it’s on the hunt for a new entrance song and taking suggestions from the public. Naturally, “Crazy Horses” by the Osmonds would be K&K’s top pick. A ’70s rock song about mystical horses tearing up the sky by a musical Mormon family works on so many levels. We’re also partial to Neil Diamond’s “Shilo,” especially considering the lyrics, “Young child with dreams/Dream ev’ry dream on your own.” Sure it’s a song about an imaginary friend, but isn’t that what’s it like to be a Canucks fan? Then there’s the Divinyls 1991 ode to selfpleasuring “I Touch Myself.” How else can one explain the lustful devotion of Canucks fans who willingly shell out hundreds of dollars just to see a single game? We’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention “Louie Louie” by the Kingsmen. Not only is it a fitting tribute to the Canucks much-maligned goalie, but like most things the Canucks do, we can’t understand a word of it.

arts&entertainment Chutzpah! Festival gets its groove on JEWISH PERFORMING ARTS FESTIVAL CELEBRATES 13TH YEAR STATE OF THE ARTS with Cheryl Rossi

M

ary-Louise Albert can’t wait until the Chutzpah! Festival is nearly over. Albert, artistic and managing director of the 13th annual Lisa Nemetz International Showcase of Jewish Performing Arts, is keen to let off steam at the Yemen Blues performance March 2. “I just love when I have the opportunity to go to a club and dance for two hours straight, so I am so looking forward to the Yemen Blues,” Albert said. “Just to be able go out and dance non-stop to this great band, we’re all looking forward to it.” The band that mixes traditional Yemenite melodies with blues, jazz, funk and West African grooves returns to Vancouver after its 2011 sold out Chutzpah! show, and expands the festival to a new spot, Venue. But before Albert dons her dancing shoes, the former contemporary dancer of 17 years who performed at the first Chutzpah! Festival in 2000 and graced the poster for the inaugural event, looks forward to catching performances by the high-calibre choreographers, dancers and companies she’s booked. The festival opens Feb. 7 with an evening of dance at the Norman and Annette Rothstein Theatre. The showcase features Brittle Failure by Vancouver-born Lesley Telford with Japanese scenographer Yoko Seyama and When You See God… Tell Him by Israeli choreographer Itzik Galili, as well as a performance by The 605 Collective. Albert’s daughter, Rebecca Margolick, who graduated from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University last year, will appear at Chutzpah! for the first time in two shows. She’ll perform with Sidra Bell Dance New York and in a duet with Vancouver’s James

Clockwise from left: Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company, Yemen Blues and Haunted are a few of the highlights at this year’s Chutzpah! Jewish performing arts festival. Gnam that’s been choreographed by IsraeliAmerican choreographer Barak Marshall. “It’s a wonderful project of connecting Vancouver emerging, established with international,” Albert said. San Francisco’s LEVYdance will present three short works alongside Sidra Bell Dance New York, and The Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company from Israel will present a North American premiere of its theatrical work If At All. “I have a very high standard,” Albert added. “I would honestly say, and have a professional background to back it up and history to back it up, that I’m looking forward to all three [dance shows] equally.”

DENTURES

Guaranteed Comfortable Fit!

The Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra will present its new work War, Love and Loss with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra. Touchstone Theatre will present Haunted, written by Daniel Karasik, winner of the 2011 Canadian Jewish Playwriting Competition, and directed by Katrina Dunn. “Katrina Dunn is one of Canada’s top directors so it’s always very exciting when that level of professionalism in theatre is here in a nice seven-show run and, again, being able to support a Canadian theatre playwright with a world premiere,” Albert said. “World premieres can be risks and that’s one of the important things that festivals can do, is that you can support new

work… And we do that a lot.” Three Hysterical Broads Off Their Medication will perform a stand-up show, and the festival will screen the 1918 silent film The Yellow Ticket in a multimedia concert featuring one of the word’s foremost klezmer fiddlers performing her original score. The evening includes a talkback with film aficionado Leonard Schein. crossi@vancourier.com twitter.com/Cheryl_Rossi

ALEXANDER, Sheila N F Mar 28, 1928 - Jan 17, 2013 Sheila was born in Point Grey, Vancouver on March 28, 1928 and passed away peacefully on January 17, 2013. She was predeceased by her parents Henry Murray and Annie (Nan) Alexander, brothers Bob and Harry Alexander, sister-in-law Mary Salva, nephew Murray Alexander, and John Talbot. She will be dearly missed by her family Sharon Talbot, Moira (Rob) Boyd, Colin (Cathy) Alexander, Glenys Morgan, great nephew Matt, great nieces Melissa, Breena and Keely and their families, as well as many dear friends. Sheila lived and worked her whole life in the city she loved. She had worked as a legal secretary for much of her life, followed by work at VGH in the chemistry lab. After retirement she kept active in the community, volunteering with the Lady Vancouver Club and enjoying her weekly swim group. Time spent with her friends and family was very important to Sheila. She loved us all deeply. The family would like to thank the caring staff at St. James Cottage Hospice in Vancouver for their kindness and care. A memorial service will be held at Knox United Church, 5600 Balaclava Street, Vancouver on Saturday February 2nd, at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of one’s choice.
