Waterfront arts precinct for West Van?

Plans call for new 28,000-square-foot arts facility on site of Ferry Building Tessa Holloway

A waterfront arts precinct stretching along Argyle Avenue with a new exhibition space and education centre on the Ferry Building site is the hope of West Vancouver arts groups. According to the plan, drawn up by the Arts in Ambleside Advisory Commission, a new multi-purpose art and museum exhibition space and administration building would be built on the site of the Ferry Building Gallery, while that gallery could be moved, possibly onto the pier itself. The report also calls for a neighbouring “arts square” at the foot of the pier and an educational building and café on the other side, as well as additions to the Silk Purse Gallery that would include a permanent outdoor stage for John Lawson Park — a full “arts precinct.” The commission presented an interim report with conceptualized site designs to council Monday. The group is now looking for resident feedback on the proposed locations. “We really did an exhaustive exploration of sites within that whole See All page 5

Judge hands NV home invader a 5-year sentence

Jane Seyd

A young man who smashed his way into a North Vancouver home and tied up its occupants in the middle of the night will spend the next four years in a federal jail, before likely being deported. The mother of Gong Oui Choi, 22, of Burnaby, wept softly as he was handcuffed and led away by a sheriff in a North Vancouver courtroom last week. Judge Judith Gedye sentenced Choi on July 15 to the mandatory minimum sentence of five years in jail — with a year’s credit for time already spent in custody — after he pleaded guilty to break and enter, robbery, unlawful confinement and using a disguise to commit a crime in connection with a home invasion. Choi was among a group of four men recruited by a gangster in December See Quick page 3

The priciest property in Canada $40M tag on 5.4-acre WV view home James Weldon

Andy Prest

A West Vancouver property owner is looking for takers on a massive $40-million Chartwell-area luxury home — the most expensive residential listing in Canada. The only catch: It doesn’t exist yet. The proposed 21,000square-foot rancher, dubbed Camelot Estates by marketers, is planned for a 5.4-acre view lot near the top of 21st Street. Prospective buyers can scoop up the parcel and see it built out for $39.9 million, while more frugal shoppers can buy the land alone — actually three adjacent legal lots — for a bargain-basement $25 million. “If you’re the buyer looking for that ultimate luxury estate, it caters to you,” said listing agent Charles Bilash. “If you’re a buyer as a developer looking to make an ultimate neighbourhood — meaning a subdivision — well, that’s also in the process.” Right now, the acreage is home to a 5,000-square-foot house, a barn and another, smaller home. The proposed development would replace those with a sprawling sixbedroom main house complete with a movie theatre, wine cellar, gym, massage room, billiards/ bar room, outdoor kitchen and living room, cabanas, “massive” infinity edge pool, “enormous” hot tub, indoor and outdoor ponds, three waterfalls, outdoor tennis court and putting greens and — no joke — 15-car garage. If the owner starts to run low on space, he or she will be able to put up friends in an additional 7,000-square-foot guest house

Rash act puts NV skier in Calgary hospital NORTH Vancouver alpine ski star Manuel Osborne-Paradis is recovering from a bad case of road rash and likely a bit of embarrassment after an apparent mishap involving a party bus at the Calgary Stampede last week.

COMPUTER graphics illustrate the potential of a 5.4-acre view lot in the Chartwell area of British Properties. If built out as offered, this 21,000-square-foot rancher with 15-car garage offer a host of luxury features that include the infinity edge pool illustrated below. featuring four en-suites with patios, a second infinity pool, media room and three-car garage. A 2,600-square-foot separate maids quarters and office will be thrown in to boot. It will have its own boardroom, waiting area and bar. As a kind of backup plan, the owner has already applied to the municipality to subdivide the parcel into 12 smaller lots. Those who are looking to invest and who have fewer than 15 cars — or who already have somewhere to put them — can buy the land by itself to sell off later in smaller pieces. The move would have substantial potential for profit, according to Bilash. The estate has been listed for about a year, he said, but only came to media attention recently after the publication of a story about the priciest homes in the country. Even before the property hit the headlines,

however, it already had several serious offers, said Bilash. So far, most have been from mainland China, a source of a much interest recently in highend Lower Mainland homes. A couple of those offers are still pending, he added. “Originally, I have to say we were focused more on the U.S. marketplace,” said Bilash. “You see a lot of these mega estates around California, Laguna Beach, the type of place that caters to very wealthy people. . . . (But) slowly we started seeing more and more the level of interest, the showings and the offers coming from the opposite side of the world.” If neither the proposed home nor the subdivision appeal, prospective buyers do have the option of drawing up plans of their own, he noted. If they want, they have room to be

significantly more extravagant. “What we’re offering is probably about 35 per cent of the square footage you can actually build on the property,”

said Bilash. “The main home is only 21,000 square feet. You can build up to 70,000. “You could build a Gates home on there, really.”

Quick police response nets gang of 4 From page 1 of 2008 to commit a home invasion at a house on Tempe Knoll Drive. Crown counsel Kristin Bryson said Choi was convinced to get involved in the scheme by a friend, Yum Lim, also 22, who phoned Choi and asked him if he wanted to take part in something that would make him some money. Choi agreed, said Bryson, but “it seems he didn’t know the full details of what was going to happen” until the night of Dec. 8, 2008, when all four men gathered at the apartment of the recruiter who gave them details about the home, the victims and how the home invasion was to be carried out. They were told the victim was a gambler who supposedly kept large sums of money in the house, said Bryson. Half of any money seized in the heist was to go to the recruiter who organized the home invasion. The rest was to be split between the four men who were to actually commit the crime. The recruiter handed the group weapons — including a handgun and a Taser — before the four set off for the home at about 3 a.m. One man stayed behind in the car while three of them — including Choi — smashed the window of a sliding door and entered the home. The sound of breaking glass woke up the occupants of the home — a husband and wife — who were downstairs sleeping in a basement suite. The couple tried to hide while the man called 9-1-1 and whispered information to a police dispatcher who immediately sent officers to the scene. Before the police arrived, however, the home invaders found the couple’s hiding place, tied them up with duct tape and threatened to kill them if they didn’t hand over all their money. While that was going on, the phone line to the

police dispatcher was left open, said Bryson, allowing the dispatch tape to record the sounds of a door being kicked in and the intruders issuing shouted threats. Before Choi and the others managed to grab any money, however, their lookout phoned to say police were on the way. All four men piled into the getaway car and tried to escape, but were stopped a block later by North Vancouver RCMP officers who found masks, a hammer and a loaded handgun in the car. The would-be thieves had left their Taser at the house by mistake. Choi’s defence lawyer David Milburn noted Choi made a full confession to police when he was arrested and has no criminal record. Choi — who is from Korea and not a Canadian citizen — was only 20 when he committed the crime, Milburn added. “He’s ashamed that he participated in this crime,” he said. It is likely he will be deported when he gets out of jail, Milburn added. Before he was sentenced, Choi told the judge “I’m truly sorry,” and said that in following his friend into the scheme, “I made the biggest mistake of my life.” Gedye told Choi that while in prison he would be surrounded by “the kinds of people who got you into that trouble in the first place,” warning him, “You’re going to come out of that experience a much-changed person.” “Hopefully you can find some way of putting this behind you,” she said. “This whole thing strikes me as being an enormous waste.” Duck Joong Yoon, 25, one of the other men allegedly involved in the home invasion, is currently on trial in B.C. Supreme Court. Two others are believed to have skipped the country and gone back to Korea. There are outstanding warrants out for their arrest.

A press release issued by Alpine Canada reported that the two-time Olympian is being treated in a Calgary hospital for a “road rash injury sustained in a minor vehicle accident.” Osborne-Paradis, citing his lawyer’s orders, did not go into specifics about the incident but did say he was doing well. “I’m up and walking and can move around without much pain,” he said in an email to the North Shore News, adding that this will not affect his return to skiing. He is currently rehabbing from a broken leg and torn knee ligament suffered in a crash at a World Cup ski race in late January. Calgary police issued a release stating that, in the early morning of July 15, a 27-year-old male climbed onto the back of a moving party bus on Macleod Trail, lost his balance and fell onto the trailer hitch. A piece of his clothing caught on the trailer hitch and he was dragged for about 80 metres before another motorist got the driver to stop the bus. The police news release also said that he was intoxicated, was taken to hospital with “severe road rash to his buttocks” and was facing Traffic Safety Act charges. Osborne-Paradis said that he was given a $115 ticket, which has been paid. “It has been a drag, but accidents happen,” OsborneParadis said. “We learn, move ahead and get stronger from it. Alpine Canada said that the national team member is expected to be released from hospital next week and he will be evaluated by team physicians with a view to returning to training in four to six weeks. Osborne-Paradiscompeted in the gruelling, seven-stage B.C. Bike Race earlier this month, after which he told the North Shore News he was on track to be in the start gates for the first World Cup race of the season, scheduled for Lake Louise in late November. He is a nine-time medalist on the World Cup circuit, including three golds.

PLANS for a waterfront arts precinct stretching along Argyle Avenue envisage a new exhibition space and education centre on the Ferry Building site with the existing structure being relocated to the pier.

All West Van’s arts boards could be From page 1 waterfront precinct, and not just on the waterfront, we looked at a lot of other sites,” said Jennifer Marshall, a consultant with Urban Arts Architecture. “It’s the one place where there’s enough space and it’s a space that’s already been claimed by culture.” The locations the commission turned down included the 1300-block of Marine Drive slated for redevelopment as part of the AmblesideNow, project the tennis courts at 13th Street and Marine Drive, a spot at Argyle Avenue and 15th Street, Argyle and 13th Street and a location next to the Silk Purse. The Ferry Building site was the only one that stood out as meeting the criteria of having space to expand, remaining connected to the commercial core while also being a dramatic, waterfront site, said Marshall. The café was included to provide revenue and also to bring people in, she said. Marshall asked council to consider making the land available at no cost for construction and to consider expanding the grants provided for operations. She said the commission hoped to raise the entire construction cost through private donations, grants and community amenity contributions, but didn’t exactly rule out asking for municipal funds. “Who knows what the future holds, but that’s not what the plan is,” she said. The challenge, she said, will be recovering operating funds. Marshall suggested the site could be booked for weddings and other events, and that revenue would increase from events, partnerships, donations and an expanded endowment fund. Construction won’t begin until the operating budget is in order, she added. The commission plans to return to council with a final report in the fall, which will include

more details about projected costs and facility size, said Marshall. It’s budget for researching and generating both reports is $80,000. The advisory commission has representatives from the West Vancouver Museum and arts organizations, such as the Silk Purse, Ferry Building Gallery, and others involved in arts delivery in British Columbia. Commission chairwoman, Merla Beckerman, said the plan is ambitious, but is designed to carry West Vancouver through the next 25 years, although the components could be staged for completion into multiple phases. Beckerman noted that West Vancouver’s arts groups have been talking about a new combined arts facility since the 1970s. She said this time the momentum is here to put shovels in the ground. She said the plan is to move forward at the same time as AmblesideNow. “Our timing is very good for this, and certainly (it’s) a needed facility,” she said. The commission also sought approval from staff to amalgamate all the boards of West Vancouver’s arts organizations and museums, which Beckerman said would allow them to share staff, share space and save money. A 2009 report suggested exhibition space of 6,000 square feet would be a small component of a 28,000-square-foot building would also house collection storage and administration offices for all West Vancouver’s arts organizations The interim report is available to the public as part of the online council agenda package for July 18, but no website has been created yet for the plan. There will be a booth set up at the Harmony Arts Festival to solicit feedback.

Crime lapse C

RIME is dropping in Canada, and if the government would listen, it could save us a lot of money. Statistics Canada reported this week that there were five per cent fewer criminal code incidents in 2010 than in 2009, extending a 20-year downward trend, and pushing the country’s crime rate to its lowest point since 1973. The numbers run counter to the belief held by many conservatives that crime is getting worse, and put the lie to Ottawa’s tough-on-crime agenda. Throw-away-the-key types will argue, as they have in the past, that the trend is an illusion, that despairing victims are simply not reporting crimes to an overworked police force — and that they are apparently five per cent less likely to do so each year.

This assumption is silly. When virtually all insurers require that crimebased claims have a police file number, what would possess victims not to report car thefts or break-ins? Since when do people not report murders? This popular view is the result of the attention paid to crime by the media, and of the perennial perception that everything was better when we were young. When your grandfather asked his grandfather if the neighbourhood was safer back in the day, what do you think was his answer? The drop in crime is real, and more than likely the result of an aging population. In light of this, Ottawa’s plan to spend billions on new prisons, makes no sense. In lean times, we should be basing our budgets on facts, not ideology.

Belay the other pension, Captain Hahn

DAVID Hahn has a handsome salary, a fabulous pension, and plummeting respect on Main Street and possibly asea.

For the next two years B.C. Ferries’ chief executive officer may be working in a hostile public environment, his own staff and officers quietly mutinying against his ample emolument — $1.2 million a year in salary and benefits, his $314,000 pension starting in 2013 more than six times the average family income. Premier Christy Clark, wring hands, wring hands, a large cheese in an earlier regime that vengefully and illegally tore up hospital workers’ and teachers’ contracts (political payoffs, true, shamelessly sneaked in by a dying New Democrat government), pleads helplessness in breaking Hahn’s. Thus keeping her heart in the right place and Hahn in the corporate wheelhouse. The ever-exciting and

This Just In

Trevor Lautens entertainingly excitable columnist and broadcaster Mike Smyth instantly advised Clark to fire the entire BCF board of directors responsible for Hahn’s perceived obese contract, a draconian punishment that would elude some now-departed members including former Liberal minister Geoff Plant and former NDP premier Dan Miller. (Directors are paid $48,000 a year plus financial brownie points for extra meetings, not too shabby a deal either.) Revenge, as the man said, is best eaten


cold. Smyth’s would be hot, publicly enjoyable but fixing nothing. The narrative: Unable to find a competent CEO in these rude backwoods, the government reached down to New York City for a top executive to run the Byzantine public quasi-monopoly ferry system, so indispensable to the economy of this oceanic province that devout freeenterpriser W.A.C. Bennett socialistically put it together some 60 years ago. Ignoring any unpleasant historical precedent that may spring to the minds of the learned, Hahn made the ferries run on time. He expensively updated the fleet, stickhandled a scandalous marine disaster, and must be credited with instituting the top-value breakfast buffet on some vessels, strongly endorsed by the staggeringly stuffed undersigned (free advt.). I’ve admired the cut of Hahn’s jib. He’s done well. Which is why I generously offer this advice gratis as possible relief from the

current thumbscrews. First, Hahn’s million-plus salary for running a billiondollar enterprise is outrageous only to citizens writhing with envy of anyone with a higher income than their own, a natural and deplorable human instinct and example of Dr. Johnson’s observation that envy is the only one of the Seven Deadly Sins that can be exercised at any time and in any place. A glance at the annual reports of my own modest holdings reveals that $1.2 million is piffle in many private companies, where devices like stock options are institutionalized rip-offs of innocent shareholders. If you seek capitalist piggishness, check Frank Stronach. Moving on, what gets up the noses of much of the citizenry is that double-dip pension. As all the world knows, the original pension was $77,000. Then, alarmed by the intelligence that Hahn was being headhunted — a rumour that any selfrespecting career-climber

would blandly allow to circulate, if not vigorously spread himself — BCF’s board of directors pressed upon Hahn a second pension of $237,000, as journalist Smyth dug out. Total, $314,000, give or take some measly hundreds. That’s $1,000 a day for a six-day week of golf or other retirement diversion (sailing, maybe?). So the free counsel here is: Waive, as in wave goodbye to, the $77,000 contract, Mr. Hahn. You won’t seriously miss it. Unless you have an extremely sharp-pencilled accountant, a sizeable portion will be disappear anyway into taxes that help fund your golden years. Some cranks will grumble that giving up the 77 grand would be a mere gesture. Well, let us not underestimate gestures, the pretty froth and bubble on public and political life that indispensably disguise what is really going on. Even if Hahn disavowed all material things, donated his wealth to good works, donned a loincloth and took holy orders, the insatiably

envious would never be sated. It is their nature. Forget them. Those who know the human and especially their own heart know well that, in Hahn’s shoes, they would not behave better, possibly worse. When one has lived too long and witnessed one forgotten cause célèbre after another — and lived off the avails as paid public scold and pose-striker — one knows that this too will pass away.

••• Speaking of B.C. Ferries, Gary Bannerman was an expert. Deep in print, I rarely heard him in his fireworks CKNW days, and we finally met only last year — he seated at the Keg with great caricaturist and mischievous elfin Kerry Waghorn, tipple well under way. Gary was in fine form, the two wittily mocking my pious sips of nonalcoholic beer — Waghorn firing the parting shot at my temporary abstemiousness: “Don’t worry, we’ll bring you back.”

Falcon frets over B.C.’s economic growth FINANCE Minister Kevin Falcon seems to have suddenly become very nervous.

Long known for his brash, cocky demeanour, Falcon this week displayed a more muted, cautious attitude when he talked about the province’s finances during a presentation he gave on the public accounts of last year’s budget. The reason? Look no further than the ongoing events in places like Greece, Portugal and the United States. The spiralling debt crisis is the latest serious threat to the world economy, and Falcon knows British Columbia could easily be sucked into any global financial meltdown. That’s why his finance ministry is now projecting that B.C.’s economy will only grow by two per cent this year. That’s half the growth we experienced last year. In fact, last year may be as good as it gets for our provincial economy for some time. No one is predicting that British Columbia — or any other province, for that matter — will achieve four per cent annual growth for the next few years. This translates into fewer jobs and less revenue for government. That means provincial finances will be

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

squeezed even further in the months and maybe even years ahead. The financial challenges for government that come with any economic slowdown are compounded by an area of spending that shows no signs of slowing down: the health-care sector. Health-care spending grew by more than four per cent (or $635 million) last year, and a similar increase will occur this year. But last year the government had more money to play with — revenues were up almost $2.5 billion more than expected because of that unexpected four per cent growth rate. This year, with slower economic growth, it’s unlikely the government will see a greater than anticipated increase in revenue. So health-care spending will continue to squeeze

other areas of government spending. The annual increase in health-care spending alone will soon be more than the annual budgets for all but eight ministries in government (remember, that’s just the increase from year to year). Falcon’s other worry is the fate of the HST. If it is rejected in the referendum, it will blow an estimated $3 billion out of government coffers. More than half — $1.6 billion — is transition money that would have to be repaid to Ottawa (the federal government is unlikely to forgive British Columbia that money because it would set an expensive precedent). The remaining $1.4 billion represents the money expected to be lost over a couple of years after the HST disappears. That’s because the HST brings in significantly more revenue to government than the old provincial sales tax. In fact, the HST was around for just nine months of the last fiscal year (which ended last March 31) and resulted in contributing several hundred million dollars in unanticipated revenue for the government. By the way, this last point is why I think people are fooling themselves if they think their personal finances will vastly improve if the HST

disappears. Falcon says he can deal with that $3-billion hole, but he’s signalled one way to soften the blow: revisit the things that were exempt from the PST if we go back to the old tax system. So don’t bet that restaurant meals, to use just one example, will once again being exempt from the PST. Everything is back on the table when it comes to any exemptions, as the government will likely seek

ways to boost revenue from the PST and an easy way to do that is to simply make more things taxable. The potential headaches flowing from getting rid of the HST are one thing, but what really has Falcon spooked are the external events happening around the world. As we saw in the 2008 recession, no government is immune from the external machinations of the world

economy if they are large enough. Falcon admits that two per cent growth projection for this year may actually prove to be too lofty if things really tank. If that worst-case scenario does indeed occur, Falcon will go from being a nervous finance minister to a panic-stricken one. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global BC.

NEIL Callaghan, owner of Second Wave surf shop in Lower Lonsdale, is enjoying the transformation of a dirty back lot into an urban garden that benefits the Harvest Project.

Greening Lower Lonsdale Neglected back lot now grows veggies for Edible Garden Project

Drake Fenton

IN the heart of Lower Lonsdale’s concrete jungle, one local business owner is in the process of creating his own organic jungle.

Neil Callaghan, 35, is the owner of Second Wave, a surf, snow and skate store at 135 Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver. In conjunction with the Edible Garden Project, Callaghan has created a blossoming vegetable garden behind his store. “The space was always there, but when my (former) partner and I first took over the store it was super trashy back there,” said Callaghan. Callaghan said he has had problems with people leaving their unwanted items and furniture beside his garbage bins. “Nothing upsets you more than when you come into work and you have to take care of someone else’s dirty mattress, and it’s the middle of winter and pouring rain,” he said. One day when the back door of his shop was open, the smell of lavender wafted into Callaghan’s store.

It inspired him to install a garden in his back lot but he didn’t just want a herb garden, he realized that he wanted to make a vegetable garden. “I’m originally from Ontario and I used to always (help) my parents with their lawn and I hadn’t done that in so long because I live in a condo,” he said. “I just yearned to get outside and do stuff. I wanted to get my hands dirty a little bit and be able to live off the land.” While in the midst of transforming his back lot into a garden, Callaghan was put into contact with the Edible Garden Project, an organization located on the North Shore that transforms unused spaces into gardens that can be used to harvest fruits and vegetables. Edible Garden donates the produce from these gardens to the Harvest Project to support people in need. “Thankfully we got into contact because I had no idea what it was going to take to do all these vegetables. I can dig around, and do things like that, but I had never really done a vegetable garden so I didn’t really realize the maintenance it would involve,” he said. The Edible Garden project has supplied him with two volunteers and Callaghan said the garden is really taking off. Tomatoes, peas, lettuce, spinach, corn and potatoes are among the numerous vegetables currently growing in the See Soil page 10

INQUIRING REPORTER BY the spring of 2013 TransLink will have faregates installed at all SeaBus, SkyTrain and Canada Line stations. TransLink believes the modernization will help to improve security and to decrease the number of transit scammers. Construction at the North Shore SeaBus terminal will begin in August and will continue for several months. The project will not be completely finished until 2013 because the Expo Line was not originally designed with faregates in mind.

Do you agree with the installation of faregates at the SeaBus terminal?

John Plisic North Vancouver I agree because turnstiles are standard in many cities so I think it is a good idea

Barbara McLeod North Vancouver I agree because of all of the bad people and the riffraff who get on the SeaBus for free. It will be safer for everybody else. Paying customers are the best.

Jo Wodz Vancouver I agree because I think that it is so ridiculous that people can ride for free all the time. There has to be a way of stopping it.

Christine Feuerhack North Vancouver I agree. It’s good for transit because most people get on and they don’t pay at all.

garden. One concern with transforming a commercial space into an outdoor garden is the risk of contamination. Oil from machinery or cars can get into the dirt and contaminate growing vegetables. Emily Jubenvill, Edible Garden’s project co-ordinator, explained the preventive measures their organization takes to neutralize contamination risks. Before starting a project Edible Garden determines what the sites history was. If there was potential of oil having leaked on the ground Edible Garden will decline to build there. Secondly, they take an extra preventive measure and ensure that the original ground is layered with cardboard. From there they add 18-inches of soil. “By adding 18-inches of additional material you are pretty

much reducing any real risk of contamination because the plants roots are in the fresh material that you brought in,” Jubenvill said. Callaghan’s site passed all of Edible Garden’s safety steps and he said that so far all of the responses he has received about his garden have been great. “This is the best project we have taken on in years,” he said. Callaghan hopes that the support his garden is providing the Harvest Project with will be returned in a cyclical fashion. “Hopefully people see that as a local business we are trying to support our own local community and so hopefully people will support a local store that is doing something like that,” he said. Second Wave offers a social hour every Friday night from 5 p.m. to 7p.m. Come by for a free hotdog, refreshment and a tour of Callaghan’s garden.

DNV won’t ban bottled water Proposal to limit municipal sale of plastic bottles gets no support Tessa Holloway

DISTRICT of North Vancouver council has poured cold water on one councillor’s proposal to ban the sale of bottled water in municipal buildings.

Coun. Alan Nixon wrote the motion designed to ban singleserving bottled water sales at district hall, civic events and other district-owned facilities, with the goal of reducing the amount of plastic that winds up in the region’s landfills and recycling programs. Only Nixon voted for his motion July 11, while other councillors argued the district shouldn’t get in the way of consumer choice, that tap water facilities like fountains are of poor quality and that bottled water could be helpful in the event of health emergencies or a major disaster. Some councillors felt banning bottled water would just encourage people to drink pop. A similar motion was far less controversial in the City of North Vancouver, which banned the sale of bottled water in city buildings in the summer of 2009, along with expanding access to tap water via fountains and carafes.

Both Metro Vancouver and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities have passed resolutions encouraging their members to ban sale of bottled water, and Vancouver, Burnaby, Victoria and Delta have also instituted bans. Metro Vancouver notes the region’s drinking water is regulated and tested more than 25,000 times each year, while bottled water is often just municipal water sold with a 2,000 per cent markup. The Metro resolution also says millions of plastic bottles wind up in the region’s landfills. Nova Scotia became the first province to ban bottled water sales in government buildings in 2010. Council did express interest in a strategy to improve tap water fountains and facilities, and staff promised to report back on options at a later date. A second motion from Coun. Nixon asked district council to recognize the “human right to water,” promote public ownership and operations of the water supply and lobby the federal government for further funds. In that motion, Coun. Roger Bassam threw in his support after amending the motion so it wouldn’t apply to sewage treatment as it was originally written, but that was also defeated, with other councillors arguing there is a role for private operators in the delivery of public tap water. As a notice of motion, private involvement in water delivery wouldn’t have actually been banned. The motion was modeled after a similar motion recently passed in Victoria.

Marcuse has more than 40 years of professional work as a dancer,choreographer,director and producer. She is also the founder and co-director of the International Centre of Art for Social Change, an organization with a mandate to help create social change through art. Recently the organization

has partnered with Simon Fraser University to deliver classes in the Faculty of Education and in the Faculty of Continuing Studies. “This appointment will assist me in sharing knowledge best practices with other ‘change-agents’ around the world,” said Marcuse. “It will help to open doors and support my continuing work with the International Centre of Art for Social Change.” —Drake Fenton

Captain America fit for the big screen Reel Life

Julie Crawford ■ Captain America: The First Avenger. Directed by Joe Johnston. Starring Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving and Tommy Lee Jones. Rating: 7 (out of 10)

TIRED of comic bookinspired films yet? There have been three already this year (Thor, another X-Men, Green Lantern), making 2011 a fanboy’s dream. But even if you’re not a Marvel zealot, you might want to give this year’s trend one more try: Captain America — with its gee-whiz dialogue and retro styling — is one film that feels as though it belongs on the big screen, instead of on Saturday morning cartoons.

Weaving) hunts its source to Norway, laughing, “while ze fuhrer digs for trinkets in ze desert.” Schmidt plans to harness the super serum’s energy and take over the world with the help of his super scientists, who salute Schmidt instead of Hitler. After some heroics stateside, the project hits a stalemate, and Steve is relegated to flogging war bonds in his Captain America costume with a troupe of dancing dollies behind him, then to movie and — ironically — comic book fame. This is when he goes rogue, enlisting the help of inventor Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) to rescue American soldiers trapped by Schmidt, who has now morphed into the Red Skull thanks to his overuse of the serum. (Stay away from steroids, kids, lest your body do the same.) As Captain America with newly minted street cred, Steve whittles away the baddies until the inevitable faceoff with Schmidt/Red Skull occurs, culminating in a long nap in the Arctic and a meeting with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in the middle of Times Square. For those of you napping through the past few years, I should explain that the appearance

Chris Evans, who cut his superhero teeth on the Fantastic Four films, plays Steve Rogers, a scrawny kid desperate to get into the army during the Second World War. Owing to his size, his chronic asthma and a long list of ailments, Steve keeps getting turned away, until the day a doctor eavesdrops on Steve’s passionate plea to get sent overseas. The German-born Dr. Erskine (Stanley Tucci) asks Steve if he wants to go kill some Nazis. “I don’t like bullies, I don’t care where they’re from,” is Steve’s reasonable response. After basic training, Steve is selected by Erskine and Col. Phillips (Tommy Lee Jones) to participate in a top-secret project, one that will make him a super soldier. In the film’s first great magic trick, Evans goes from puny to pumped, emerging a foot taller and a great deal more muscular after the experiment. Noting the change with more than professional approval is Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), a British agent working on the project. A serum that makes good men great and bad men evil? The Nazis already have it. The maniacal Schmidt (Hugo

FILM Film features retro styling and dialogue From page 14 don’t really mind the lag in action in the third act; there is plenty of heart and humour to see us through. Tucci, Toby Jones (as Schmidt’s minion) and Weaving have great fun doing deliberately hammy German accents: I was just dying for someone to say “ve have vays of making you talk.” The love story between Peggy and Steve is appropriately chaste and in keeping with the period feel, and it anchors the story as it blows into full-boar CG battle mayhem. Joe Johnston (The Wolfman, also with Hugo Weaving, October Sky, Jumanji) throws some Raiders seasoning in here, with a dash of Star Wars gadgetry, but these feel like part of the overall plan rather than cheap rip-offs. Assuredly, Captain Canuck could take Captain America in today’s economy (“Feel the strength of our mighty dollar, zap!”) but given the dismal state of things south of the border, a little rah-rah flag flying could go a long way, morale-wise, and Captain America: the First Avenger is just the ticket. Maybe Obama should buy a pair of tights?

WV tea merchant celebrates India

Erin McPhee

WE didn’t know where to begin.

A three-tier serving dish filled with a host of sweet and savoury delicacies, each infused with a variety of aromatic Indian teas, had arrived in front of each of us and we were overwhelmed. Having just finished bowls of mango sorbet, it didn’t take long for us to dig in, continuing to sip on cups of Maharajah Darjeeling. Myself and two friends had gathered at The Urban Tea Merchant at the Village at Park Royal Monday, and while we each had a different favourite item — whether it was a freshbaked scone, sandwich or other delectables — we were in agreement: this was the perfect way to while away the afternoon. Inspired by their involvement in the inaugural Indian Summer, a 10-day festival of Indian arts and ideas held July 7-17 at Vancouver’s SFU Woodward’s, as well as 2011 being named the Year of India in Canada, representatives of The Urban Tea Merchant have opted to continue celebrating the country’s culture and cuisine by presenting a Taste of India Petite Afternoon Tea.

It’s so rich and deeply rooted with the concept of tea,” says co-owner Tom James, a

West Vancouver resident. Tom and his wife Karinna launched the family-owned and operated business following a trip around the world with their daughter Casey, who serves as director of store operations. “It came about from a vision that Karinna had,” says Tom.

They visited a number of places, including Africa, India, Europe and Asia. “In each area we found such a fascinating connection with tea and the culture that surrounded it,” says Tom. “We didn’t want to just open a store, we wanted to open a store that provided an

experience around tea.” They opened their first location in the Village at Park Royal in 2004 and their second, at 1070 West Georgia St., in Vancouver in 2009.

Fans leave happy despite rainy conditions

Erin McPhee

EVEN though the weather was soggy, there were large crowds in attendance at the 34th annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival, which served up a diverse lineup of talented local and international artists July 15-17 at Jericho Beach Park.

The following are some of my favourite moments, rain and all: Cute couples A number of adorable male/female acts were featured over the course of the weekend. On Friday alone, the main stage showcased the dreamy harmonization of Imaginary Cities Justin Townes Earle and a female stand up bass player and, of course, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, whose musical chemistry was utterly captivating. At one point in the performance, Welch cast her guitar aside, opting to perform some handclapping percussion, topped off with a tap dance. Saturday evening, Nova Scotia native Buck 65 and his backing vocalist Marnie Herald continued to charm audiences with their interplay. In contrast to Herald, whose mobility was limited due to a cast on her leg, Buck danced freely. Not wanting her to miss out on the fun, he enabled her to stay involved by handing her a tambourine, which Herald dutifully held out for him to

enthusiastically slap, even taking a few turns herself. Artist love Spotted: Acclaimed Maritime singer/songwriter Joel Plaskett peeking out from backstage at Welch, one of his favourite songwriters, prior to his performance with The Emergency, which went on to rock the festival, bringing its opening day to a close. On Saturday afternoon, Townes Earle was among those featured in a workshop entitled Grit and Wisdom. The other participating artists — Mary Gauthier, Jim Bryson and The Jayhawks’ Gary Louris and Mark Olson — were motionless, faces and bodies turned towards the talented son of Steve Earle, whenever he took a turn, including a performance of “They Killed John Henry.” Townes Earle’s unique picking style no doubt had piqued their curiosity. In the following workshop, entitled Changes in Latitude, Elliott BROOD member Casey Laforet mouthed the words of the chorus during Plaskett’s performance of “On the Rail,” a song about Nova Scotia’s Cabot Trail from CBC’s Great Canadian Song Quest album. Vancouver’s The Fugitives were the third act featured and member Barbara Adler expressed concern about the timing of photographs being taken of her as her mouth was always gaped open in amazement at the other bands. Family ties A number of artists opted to pay tribute to their famous parents, Rosanne Cash, obviously, when she played the

main stage Saturday, as well as actor Tim Robbins, whose father, folk singer Gil Robbins, ran The Gaslight. Townes Earle also performed “Mama’s Eyes,” from Midnight at the Movies, a couple of times at the festival. Covers Elliott BROOD opted to do their own version of the White Stripes’ “Hotel Yorba” Saturday afternoon, an apt choice. Buck 65 told a story about playing the Ottawa Bluesfest Tuesday, at the same time as John Fogerty. He was shocked there was anyone in attendance at his set as there was a legend on stage, so to ensure they didn’t miss out, he did a version of “Wicked and Weird” over a sample of CCR’s “Run Through The Jungle.” It went over well so he opted to repeat the performance in Vancouver. Vancouver-based musician C.R. Avery gave a beatbox and harmonica-infused shout out to Tom Waits’ “Big In Japan” during a Sunday workshop. The Undead While various songs in the folk music tradition have focused on tales of murder and untimely death, a few artists at this year’s Vancouver Folk Music Festival took things one step further, their flare for the macabre compelling. Graveyard Train, a band from Australia that made its Canadian debut, has built a career out of playing “horror country.” Sunday afternoon, they entertained with lively, tongue-in-cheek bluegrass songs about ghosts, mummies, haunted scarecrows, witches who

STARTING THIS SUMMER, BC HYDRO WILL BE UPGRADING HOMES AND BUSINESSES WITH NEW SMART METERS. MOVING TO A MORE EFFICIENT, MODERNIZED GRID WILL CREATE IMMEDIATE SAVINGS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS. YOU MAY BE WONDERING... What is a smart meter? The smart metering program will modernize our electricity system by replacing old electro-mechanical meters with new digital meters. A smart meter is a digital meter that records the amount of power you use. It helps improve the efficiency of the power grid, means less wasted electricity and gets BC ready for future power needs. What are the benefits for me as a customer? You will be able to see your power use in near real time and it will be faster and easier to open and close your account if you move. What happens if the power goes out? With smart meters in place, BC Hydro can pinpoint power outages and restore power faster. How does it make my community safer? The new meters reduce public and worker exposure to theft-related safety hazards, such as house fires, live wires and premature transformer failures. How will my meter be read? There will be remote, two way communication between your meter and BC Hydro. Smart meter signals are short, infrequent and will last less than one minute per day. Is the signal safe? Yes. The signals are low level frequency, meeting and exceeding Health Canada safety standards. Is my information secure? Similar to online banking systems, the data from the meters is secure and your privacy is protected.

Bring on the sun

WHILE the rest of the nation swelters, West Coasters are sitting pretty in the shade.

Until then, here’s how to get your glow on.

A trio of hair-care products from Schwarzkopf take care of that. BC Sun’s formulation incorporates UV filters and anti-oxidant Vitamin E to protect the hair against UV rays and free radicals, while palm oil infuses it with shine. The product trio includes: a shampoo ($14.50 for 250 ml) for use before and after sun exposure; a spray conditioner ($16.50 for 200 ml) for use before, during and after sun, and an after-sun treatment ($23.75 for 200 mL) to nourish, detangle and smoothe the hair.

The literary chops of members of The Fugitives and C.R. Avery were put to the test during Sunday’s From Sudan to East Van workshop when they were joined by Emmanuel Jal. Each act took turns completing a freestyle of

sorts, centred around Avery’s “Motel.” Dance moves Jal kept the crowd on their feet by prompting the ladies to do a hair dance, which appeared to involve violently flipping their hair from back to front and then side-to-side, which he somehow made look easy. #bummersummer It’s true the weather was less than impressive at this year’s festival; however, the music made it memorable just the same. Thanks to those who make it possible year after year.

Volunteers go with the flow Tessa Holloway

FOR most, the Vancouver Folk Music Festival is a time for relaxation with some of the world’s best musicians, but Wayne Stewart barely has time to breathe.

Stewart has been a volunteer at the festival since 2003 and as stage manager for Stage 6 since 2004, and in that time he’s seen just about everything — and just about everything has gone wrong. “I do a lot of festivals. I’ve been doing the jazz festival for 25 years, I do sound, staging . . . the rest of my life I do this for pay,” he said. But aside from the music there’s one reason in particular he’s willing to volunteer here: the challenge. It’s

the most difficult job he’s ever done, he said. “I do this here mainly because it’s well-nigh impossible. It’s just this side of possible, to do it at all.” Stage 6 is a workshop stage, so most of the sets that play include three or four musicians or bands, sometimes upwards of 20 people sharing the stage at once. “You have to get all three bands playing at the same time on the same stage, often with 1525 minute changeovers, which means 15 to 25 minutes to get the last 25 people off stage and get the next 25 people on,” he said. “It is the biggest stage-managing challenge I have.” To top it off, many of them play instruments Stewart has never heard of. Of the instruments for Nomadic Caravan, a performer at this year’s festival, there was a bhapang, a single-stringed perSee Volunteers page 24

Volunteers keep coming back From page 23

cussion instrument, a bapand, a been been and one that was simply labeled “weird f***ing thing” on the stage diagram. “That’s what the person who made up the chart called it because there’s no way he could pronounce or remember the name,” said Stewart with a laugh, pointing to the sheet of paper. In another year, a golf cart dumped what looked like just a pile of lumber at the side of the stage — it wasn’t until later that day the crew realized it could make music. One year, the tour manager of one of the bands playing his stage decided to be “helpful,” said Stewart, as he made quotation marks with his fingers, by rearranging the cords that connect the instruments to the monitors the volunteers use to adjust the sound. Partway through the set the crew realized their controls were adjusting the wrong instruments, and when there’s 48 inputs it’s hard to guess which is which. The only way to fix it, said Stewart, was for stagehands to dash across the stage from the instruments, following the cords to where they plugged in, and plug them back in where they were supposed to be. “So basically as the show was going, we were repatching it, and hopefully it’s transparent to the audience, and sometimes it’s not,” he said. This year, Stewart had to scramble again when one of the bands scheduled to play the main stage, Tinariwen, was denied entry into Canada. That caused Licardo Lemvo to be bumped from Stage 6, and suddenly Stewart had a hole to fill. The band Burning Hell agreed to fill it and rounded up as many idle musicians as they could, throwing together an impromptu set. “Great band too, one of my favourites this year,” said Stewart. “It was sort of a free-for-all.” Somehow, despite all the mayhem, volunteers like Stewart keep returning to the festival year after year. “Especially this year everybody on this crew is somebody I’ve worked with multiple years before,” he said. But it’s not just stage managers and tech staff, but garbage clean-up, site transportation, water stations on site, on top of jobs like driving the performers to the airport and handling the lodgings. But there are perks: free tickets, for one, and volunteers have three square meals a day plus desserts for their trouble. All that food is cooked up behind the main stage, where a cacophony of metal can often be heard as the barbecue volunteers start a chant. “Who are we? Barbecue! What do we do? Barbecue!” they shout in unison, frying up salmon, chicken and bell peppers. “We make a lot of noise,” admitted Mitchell Ingrim, one of the barbecue volunteers. Volunteering is the best way to see the festival while keeping busy when his favourite bands are off stage. As an added bonus, he cooks for the artists, even barbecuing bear meat when Steven Seagal paid a visit to watch Ricky Skaggs play last year.

Switching genres tough From page 13 emotional.” Wild started tap and jazz dancing at nine years old and it quickly eclipsed all her other passions. She took on new styles, in particular hip hop, which she specializes in today, and remembers sitting with other students in Grade 8 talking about what they wanted to do as a career when all she could think of was dance. Soon she started auditioning for movies and video projects and joined the Project Soul Productions Company in Vancouver and her hip-hop dance troupe Diamonds in the Rough. Even after reaching Toronto, Wild had to shine among 260 dancers all vying for a spot on the show. The winner of the show will take home $100,000 and a new car, but Wild knows she has a lot of work before that. She described the show as her most difficult challenge, in part because her first dance with partner Kevin Howe was contemporary — a style where Wild was at first nervous and uncomfortable. While she admitted she didn’t get all the technical details right, she impressed the judges with her heart. “Switching genres is the hardest. You don’t want to let go of what you just did but you’re also relieved you’re done, but you pick another genre and you have to get right into it. There’s no holding back,” she said. “It’s getting harder and harder, it’s not getting easier…(but) we’re every good partners together, he’s very technically trained and I have a lot of musicality and patience, so we put our qualities together and it’s awesome.” In the audience for that show was Teya’s mom Lisa Wild, who flew to Toronto for the first week, who was just as tense. “You’re always worried, what if she trips and falls or something happens like that, this is it. But no, she did an amazing job,” she said, but added that Teya has had a drive to succeed since she started dance. “It was never me saying ‘Oh, we paid for these lessons, you’d better finish them.’ It was never like that. It was all her.” While Teya isn’t the only West Coast dancer on the show — fellow Diamonds in the Rough member Carlena Britch is from Vancouver — the Windsor secondary grad made sure her website on the show listed her hometown as North Vancouver. “It’s very important to me because I don’t want to forget where I came from. I was raised in North Vancouver, my dance school was in North Vancouver, and I want that to be known,” she said. Working with the school, she sees a lot of talent on the North Shore, and hopes to be able to judge some of the competitions she used to dance in when she returns. In the meantime, though, she’s hoping to take this as far as she can, and is thankful for all the support she’s been receiving from her old dance partners, who made a YouTube video in her honour, to many of her friends and family back home. Lisa works at Curves in Deep Cove and has been pulling in support that way, too.

World Harp Festival comes to Vancouver

Drake Fenton

DEEP Cove resident Elizabeth Volpé Bligh has been the principal harpist of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra since 1982, but for the past four years she has had to become an event planner and business administrator extraordinaire. Well, sort of. Bligh is the chairwoman of the World Harp Congress host committee and she has been the key figure in bringing the World Harp Festival to Vancouver this summer. Bligh will readily admit that when she began the project she had no idea what she was getting herself into. “A local harpist took me out for coffee one day and buttered me up and asked if I would mind taking over the World Harp Festival for Vancouver,” Bligh said while laughing. “I didn’t really know what I was agreeing to, and then in 2008 I went to my first one in Amsterdam and realized what I had committed to. But once I say I am going to do something, I do it.”



The World Harp Festival is an event that occurs every three years and is usually hosted in a European city. The last time it was in North America was in 1996 in Tacoma, Wash. The festival attracts internationally renowned harpists from the across the world. In Vancouver these musicians will perform solo pieces, along with performances done in conjunction with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. The seven-day event, running from July 24 to 30, will include workshops, panel discussions, lectures and three VSO concerts, two of which will be held at the Orpheum. Everything will be held in the heart of Vancouver’s downtown core, as Bligh wanted each event to be within walking distance of the festival’s congress center at the Sheraton Wall Centre. It is here that Bligh will be spending most of her time, and where harp enthusiasts will be able to purchase harps, strings and accessories. With the festival only a week away everything seems to be coming into place, but Bligh relates that in the formative stages, four years ago, planning the festival seemed like an insurmountable task. “I have learned so much in four years. It has been a

huge, steep learning curve for me,” said Bligh. “When I started off I was just groping in the dark. Just learning how to use an Excel spreadsheet was something I never knew before.” For all of the difficulty it entailed, Bligh said the process has been incredibly rewarding and she is thrilled that Vancouver is getting the chance to host the festival, as it will be a once in a lifetime event. “I am very excited about next week, when I look at the people that are coming I pinch myself,” she said. “They are the top of the top and the fact that they are willing to come play (in Vancouver) just floors me.” Bligh, herself, will not be performing. She said that the amount of time she has had to spend organizing has prevented her from practising her music sufficiently. Luckily for Bligh, event organizers are guaranteed a spot in the next World Harp Festival. That one will be in Australia in 2014. Bligh said she will be there, and is looking forward to worrying about her harp and not Excel spreadsheets. For more information about the World Harp Festival, visit www.worldharpcongress2011. com.

Harmony Arts Festival to suit different tastes Benjamin Alldritt

The Harmony Arts Festival is thriving. Back in West Vancouver for its 21st season, the 10-day festival will offer an expanded range of exhibitions and performances from right across the creative spectrum. For the first four days of the festival, West Vancouver’s Argyle Avenue will be taken over by the Art Market, a high-end collection of jurychosen creations. For the first time, three artists from outside of B.C. will make the trip to the West Coast to display their work. As well as world-class jewelers Ko Park and Yaïr Stern, Ontario graffiti artist D3N!@L, also known as Denial, and sometimes known as Daniel Bombardier, will be among the exhibits. The entirely self-taught artist creates his images using spray paint and stencils, but often converts them into adhesive stickers. It’s a medium that has taken his playful and pointed messages right around the globe. He estimates more than half a million of his stickers are out there. “I’ve gotten stuff all over the world just through meeting people,” Denial told the North Shore News from his studio in Windsor, Ont. “I’m a true believer. I like to give something to someone even if they can’t buy it. They can still help promote you. I haven’t been to all the places my stickers have.” While Denial cut his teeth putting his art up in alleys and on the side of watertowers — “the higher the better” — the 34-year-old now runs his own graphic design firm with a staff and lots of marketing work. But that doesn’t mean he’s

lost his subversive edge, particularly when he feels street art is under attack. “We just did a lot of fake Toronto police badges with ‘Toronto Art Crimes Division’ stenciled on them and (Toronto Mayor) Rob Ford’s face as the centerpiece,” laughed Denial. “We put about 50 or 60 of them up around the core.” Closer to home, North Vancouver resident and North Shore News designer Geoff Ross will be exhibiting his native-influenced wood carvings. “I take reclaimed cedar, because I like that old look, and I carve into it to reveal the new wood beneath,” said Ross. Growing up with his adopted Interior Salish brother, Ross was exposed to First Nations art and culture throughout his childhood. Those influences returned to him a few years ago when he moved into a new home. “I needed art for the walls. I had some old wood lying around; I found my grandfather’s carving tools and for fun, I thought I’d see what I could make out of it. I had this piece on the wall and friends came over and I was getting really good feedback and I thought let’s put it out there and see what other people think. So I put it on Craigslist and it sold and I made another one and it sold and so I just keep going and here I am five years later.” Ross stresses that his work is not traditional native art, and admits he was a little unsure how First Nations buyers would react to him. “When I had my first native customer I was a bit concerned. He said ‘I like your work, can I come by?’ and I said ‘Just so you know, before we get into some awkward moment, I’m Caucasian.’ He said ‘I don’t care if you’re a Chinaman, I just want to buy your art.’ Ever since then I’ve been See 55 page 32

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry.No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let anybody #1 confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples: ! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK. We supply EVIDENCE!

Aileen was predeceased by her loving husband of 46 years, Denny and is survived by her four devoted sons, Burns (Joanne), Warren (Christine), Colin (Carol) and Eric, her adored grandchildren, Kyle, Reid, Lauren, Trevor, Michelle, Conor and Emma, her sister Mo l l y L a n g d al e , b r o th e r Duncan Macpherson, sistersin-law Barbara Sharp and Connie McLellan, many nieces and nephews and good friends and neighbours. Aileen lived her entire life in North Vancouver where she and Denny raised their family. She was a proud alumni of North Vancouver High and a CoFounder of The Society for Children With a Hearing Handicap. Aileen lived for her family but managed to still find time to travel the world, play bridge and selflessly help others. She’ll live on in the lives of all the people she touched who were so fortunate to know her. A celebration of her life will be held on Monday, July 25, 2011 at 1:00 pm at St. Andrew’s and St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church, 2641 Chesterfield Avenue, North Vancouver.

Knox, Thomas Brantingham September 28, 1922 July 7, 2011 Born September 28, 1922, Tom passed away on July 7, 2011. Predeceased by his loving wives, Ruth and Pam, he is survived by his two children, Donna (Diana), David (Tuk), grandchildren Catrina and Matthew, and many family members, including Penny Thomas, Edna Gilbert and Bernice Lewis. Tom spent his entire career at Burrard Ship Yards where he worked hard to support his family. He was a humble, kind man who enjoyed a good joke and always saw the glass as "half full". He loved people, animals, music, dancing and sports, and as a member of the North Shore Curling Club, the West Van Lawning Bowling Club and the West Van Seniors Centre, Tom rarely stayed still for long. Tom had a smile for everyone and his energy and enthusiasm will be sadly missed by us all. In celebration of Tom’s life, a drop-in reception will be held at Hollyburn House, 2095 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, on July 25, 2011, between 2 and 4 pm.

MULLEN - Muriel Patricia (‘Pat’) 1920 – 2011 Pat was born in Edmonton, Alberta on June 10th, 1920 and passed away peacefully on July 17th, 2011. She is survived by her sons Bill (Marie) and Dave (Georgia), and pre-deceased by her son Jim (Maria). She recently lost her beloved husband of over 62 years, Fred, in February. She will be dearly missed by her grandchildren, Mark, Sacha, Rachel, Andrea, Jamie, Jacqueline, Shane and Kyle, and her new great grandchild, Jacob. Pat grew up in Edmonton, where she excelled at school and developed an early passion for music that stayed with her throughout her life. After high school graduation, Pat worked for the Edmonton Journal and during the War years she was active on the Home front as a volunteer. In 1948, she married Frederick Robert Mullen, a former high school friend she had tutored, beginning a lifelong partnership that took her to cities in the United States, Europe, Vancouver Island and Eastern Canada. The couple finally settled in North Vancouver over 40 years ago. While Pat embraced the West Coast, she never forgot her family and friends from the Prairies. She was an active member of the United Church of Canada wherever she lived. Pat will be most remembered for her unwavering commitment and support for her family, which she always put first. The family wishes to extend their sincere appreciation to the Kiwanis Care Centre in North Vancouver for caring for Pat in her final years. The Funeral Service will be held at 2:30 pm on July 24th, 2011 at Highlands United Church, 3255 Edgemont Blvd., North Vancouver. Reception will follow.

November 22, 1936 ~ July 15, 2011 On 15th July, 2011 Buddy lost his battle with prostate cancer and died peacefully at his home in West Vancouver with his family by his side. Born in Ermelo, Holland on 22nd November 1936, he moved to Cape Town, South Africa in 1937. After graduating from St. Georges School in Cape Town he attended Ecole Hoteliere Lausanne in Switzerland, where he met the love of his life, Chantal. After marrying in London, England at age 19, they returned to Cape Town where they raised four children. Buddy passionately pursued his interests in spear fishing, wreck diving, and ultimately sailing. With help from his many friends and family, he built his beloved Poudre D’or in the backyard in Clifton, launched at Royal Cape Yacht Club in 1976. In 1978 the family immigrated to Vancouver, where he rebuilt his successful life insurance advisor business and attained Five Star Master Builder status with Manulife Financial. Poudre D’or was sailed to Vancouver to join the family. Buddy continued racing Poudre D’or in Vancouver and was well recognized and liked as a competitor in the Vancouver sailing community. He was a great influence on many new and upcoming sailors who crewed with him over the years. When not racing, Buddy and Chantal enjoyed cruising with the family and later enjoyed the West Vancouver Yacht club outstation at Centre Bay on Gambier Island with his many grandchildren and their friends. Buddy was a lovely, ethical, genuine, kind, positive, optimistic, hard working and generous man who always saw the good side of people and loved life. Buddy was the patriarch of a very close family who all reside in West Vancouver/Bowen Island. Loved and missed by his wife of 55 years, Chantal, his two sisters in Holland (Maryke and Ingrid), his sister in law in Cape Town (Odile), his extended family in France, his children, Sean (Gesa), Maurice (Diane), Brita (Stuart) and Dominique (Gian Carlo), his 10 grandchildren, Danielle, Nicholas, Gabrielle, Craig, Bronwyn, Tristan, Meghan, Tania, Christian and Isabella, and his dog, Mocha. The family would like thank all those involved in Buddy’s battle with cancer including Doctors Gleave, Tyldesley, Chi and Hofmeyr. A memorial service will be held at St. Francis in the Woods, 4773 South Piccadilly St. West Vancouver, at 3pm on 28th July 2011 followed by a celebration of life at the West Vancouver Yacht Club, 5854 Marine Dr. at 4pm. In lieu of flowers donations to the BC Cancer Clinic or Vancouver Symphony Orchestra would be appreciated.

Margaret Pangman died peacefully at home in her sleep on July 14, 2011 at age 93. She is predeceased by her husband of 50 years, Doug, who passed away January 21,1995. Margaret is survived by her daughter,Susanne Hawkins and son-in-law, Lee, her grandsons Mark (wife Julie) and Shawn (wife Lisa) and her wonderful little great grandson, Jack Douglas Hawkins. Margaret was born in Louisburg,Nova Scotia and later moved to Halifax. She attended Dalhousie University but the war changed her plans. She worked as a secretary, then met her future husband, Doug, who was a lieutenant commander in the Canadian Navy. They married in 1944 and eventually moved to Vancouver where they made their home. They built their house in the Capilano Highlands in 1950 and lived their whole lives there.Margaret loved gardening, curling, her dogs and there were many neighborhood get togethers. Marg and Doug loved their yearly trips down south to Reno, Lake Tahoe, California and the Oregon Coast. They celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1994. Margaret developed Guillane Barre Syndrome in the late 1980s. She fought hard to manage this illness and was able to go on some well deserved holidays to Palm Springs, Reno and Alaska. At age 80 she amazed everyone by climbing onto a tiny float plane and soaring through the Misty Fjords of Alaska. The past few years she was confined to bed. Physically her body struggled but her mind was sharp to the end. She loved to watch the news, read magazines, anything to keep up with what was going on in the world. She had opinions on everything. She happily stayed up all night to watch the royal wedding. Her true love was her family. She loved the visits from us all and especially baby Jack. She was so very proud of her grandsons. We came to believe that she would always be there for us. And I guess she always will be. A thank you to all the care givers throughout the years who made it possible for Margaret to stay in the home she loved.

RITCHIE - Augustus “Hugh” (Sept. 24, 1919 – July 19, 2011) Hugh, affectionately called “Gussie” by his grandchildren, passed away July 19th at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox, with family by his side. He was born in Pincher Creek, Alberta, spent most of his childhood in Vancouver, and joined the war effort overseas, as a radar operator in the R.C.A.F. In London, he met his future wife Joan on his first leave, and married her on his last leave. After the war, he and Joan raised their family in North Vancouver and he worked as a pharmacist and manager for Cunninghams, and later owned and ran a very successful Shoppers Drug Mart franchise. When he retired in 1982, he and Joan moved to the Comox Valley. With his beloved Joanie at his side, Hugh was first and foremost an adventurer. They were trailblazers, traveling to Mexico long before it was in vogue and subsequently exploring all corners of the world. They owned several powerboats and loved to be on the water whether fishing, water-skiing, cruising, or swimming. Hugh was also an avid gardener, cribbage player, sports fan, wine maker, and champion table tennis player. He was a man of great principle, with a healthy sense of humility, and thus a role model to people from all occupations. He will be sadly missed by his wife Joan, his children Susan Jackson (Ron), John (Maureen), daughter-in-law Bonnie, and grandchildren Cara, Leanne (Jim Vassalo), Sharleen Jackson (Dennis Balogh), Mark Jackson (Jenny), Kyle, and Megan as well as many other family members and friends. He is predeceased by his son Steve. The family would like to thank Dr. Tancon and the staff at his clinic, as well as all the caring, wonderful professionals and volunteers at St. Joseph’s. There will be a small celebration of life in North Vancouver. For information call 604-313-7163. Those wishing to honour Hugh’s memory are encouraged to make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross or St. Joseph’s General Hospital Foundation.

SOUTHERN, Marjorie (Jerry) Anne Nov. 27, 1920 – July 9, 2011 Jerry passed away peacefully on July 9, 2011 surrounded by family at the age of 90 years at George Derby Center in Burnaby, BC. Jerry is predeceased by her husband Gil, grandson, Greg. Jerry will be lovingly remembered by her son Tom (Darlene), daughter Susan, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sister Gert, brother Sandy, nieces, nephews and friends. Tom would like to thank all the staff on South Main at George Derby Center for all the loving tender care that his mother received over the years that she was there. There will be no service held at her request.

Adults with physical and mental disabilities face housing issues even greater than the average person. Thompson Community Services’ mission is to help meet those needs. For more than 20 years, Thompson has met the housing and personal needs of people with a range of disabilities. Now we’re hoping we can find individuals in the Vancouver and North Vancouver areas, who can help us continue that tradition of services. Our clients have a variety of needs, but most simply need a home where people will care about them. They require supervision and need the support and stability that comes from living in a home. What they really need is someone to care, just as Thompson Community Services has cared. We are seeking female caregivers, who have extensive experience and knowledge around supporting individuals with mental health conditions. If you have extra room in your home, and want to take on one of the most rewarding challenges you’ll ever face, we’ll be happy to give you more information.

Subaru’s speedy WRX going solo photo submitted

THE new Chrysler 200, replacing the outgoing Sebring, is a smooth riding mid-size sedan that offers a lot of elegance, room and comfort at an affordable price.

Even the base LX edition of the 200 comes with a very good equipment package that includes a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, four-wheel disc brakes with an anti-lock system, remote keyless entry with a security alarm, power windows, locks and mirrors (heated) and air conditioning. The looks “What’s that classy looking new car you’ve got?” was my wife’s uncoaxed first impression after seeing it in the driveway. She also loved the finish and colour (a Blackberry Pearl Coat), which is a very dark metallic blue that looked black in low light conditions. The new styling is a major change in direction from last year’s Sebring, yet it was cleverly done without changing the doors or the main cabin, which helped keep costs in line. The all-new front and rear, however, give it a completely different look. Up front there’s a new grille, hood, fenders, headlights, driving lights, bumper and air intakes. Chrome is in again these days and you’ll find lots of it on the 200, even on the mirrors and door handles. The

Subaru plans smaller, twodoor WRX When you think “Subaru,” one of two images immediately springs to mind: either a muddy old Forester with Kayaks on the roof, a Bhuddist bumper-sticker, and an interior fug that’s one part patchouli and nine parts wet dog; or a turbo-nutter rally car sporting a scoop the size of the Sydney Opera House on the hood, red mudflaps that look like they were stolen off a Peterbilt, and blingy gold wheels. One group of owners wants to save the Earth, the other wants to drive over the entire thing sideways in a spray of gravel. You’d think there’d be a disconnect, but the fact is, making cars that are highly capable and lightweight works in either application. A sure-footed Impreza makes for a good off-road race-car, and then you can stretch it out a bit to make a Forester: an efficient go-anywhere alternative to a hulking SUV. Now though, news has leaked out that Subaru intends to distance the WRX from the Impreza entirely. Rather than taking a normal compact car and turbocharging it until it can

2011 Chrysler 200

Chrysler’s newest number

David Chao and Bob McHugh Contributing Writers

Columnist David Chao reviews the 2011 BMW 5Series in next week’s Rev.

AN elegant mid-sized sedan with a supple suspension, the new Chrysler 200 offers a roomy interior and comes with a very affordable price tag.

Available in both sedan and convertible models, it replaces the outgoing Chrysler Sebring. In the completely revised Chrysler product line, the front-wheel drive 200 fits below the rear-drive Chrysler 300 in both size and price, as its name would suggest. It competes in a highly competitive market sector that includes such well-known nameplates as Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Malibu, Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry. The transformation from Sebring to 200 was done in less than a year, which is a remarkable achievement in itself and one that should get the designers and engineers behind the new car huge credit. What’s even more impressive is that it was done with fewer people and the threat of financial collapse hanging over the company.

Stiffened body mounts, new suspension geometry with a raised roll centre, a new sway bar and a wider rear track improve both its ride and handling. The 200 also received an extensive upgrade in the reduction of noise, vibration and harshness. The changes include acoustically laminated windshield and front door windows. The standard engine in the LX ($19,995) and Touring ($23,995) trim levels of the 200 is a 173-horsepower, 2.4litre, 16-valve four-cylinder with variable valve timing. It’s a holdover engine that provides good low-r.p.m. torque and decent fuel economy, and is mated to an equally reliable, though a little dated, fourspeed automatic. My test 200 sedan, however, came with the new 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine. Offering considerably more power, it can produce 283 h.p. and is mated to a sixspeed automatic. Fuel economy is almost as good as the standard four-cylinder and the V-6 provides it in a silky smooth fashion. Standard on the Limited ($27,995) and S ($28,995) trim levels of the 200, the V-6 engine is also an option on the Touring edition.

with a simpler wing logo with the name “Chrysler” on a blue (or black on the S trim) background. The S trim also comes with a monochromatic (single colour, no chrome) exterior styling package and unique wheels. The inside Not just a new interior, but an upgraded interior was a top priority for the 200. If you own or have driven a Sebring (it’s a popular rental fleet car) you’ll certainly understand why. Overall the interior is definitely superior. The use of soft-touch materials in key usage areas, the one-piece dash and increased use of accent lighting, such as light strips that highlight the centre console cup holders, provide a much richer ambience. My test 200 was a Limited trim, which comes with leather upholstery that had nice accent stitching. The redesigned seats offer much better support, were more comfortable and appeared to be far more substantial. Safety The 200 sedan has already been recognized as a “Top Safety Pick” based on

crash testing performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). An Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, however, is not standard with the base LX trim, but it is an option (as is the six-speed automatic transmission). ESC is recognized as an important active safety feature that can save lives and is included as standard with all other trim levels of the 200. The drive It’s what’s not there when you drive the new 200 that is so impressive. Chrysler has done an excellent job of eliminating vibrations and road noise and the suspension is able to absorb road irregularities with the panache of a far more expensive car. The new Pentastar V-6 engine is a polished machine that supplies quiet but potent power when needed and is a perfect match with the sixspeed automatic. It generates more than 90 per cent of its peak torque from about 1,600 r.p.m. and its power graph remains almost flat beyond 6,000 r.p.m. A subdued growl

SOFT touch materials, a one-piece dash and accent lighting all give the 200 a much richer ambience than its predecessor, the Sebring.

comeback with some old-school muscle From page 41

spit flame, Subaru is going to make a stand-alone lightweight WRX that will be similar in size to a Ford Fiesta, and pack a 1.6-litre turbo engine. On one hand, this is a bit sad, as I’ve got a WRX wagon in the driveway and love its blend of speed and practicality. It’s like driving around in a Swiss Army knife. On the other hand, my WRX goes through fuel like it was on fire. What’s more, a smaller footprint and small-displacement engine might mean a return to Subaru’s WRC-rallying roots. That’s sure to delight enthusiasts everywhere, and given how much fun a tiny turbo tyke like Nissan’s Juke is to drive, a new smaller WRX should be a hoot. You’ll just have to strap the retriever to the roof with the kayaks. Chrysler debuts SRT high-performance models Many moons ago, when all American manufacturers were on the ropes, none seemed more battered and bruised than Chrysler. After some callous treatment by Mercedes-Benz — who owned Chrysler briefly — the housing crisis and failing economy was a one-two punch that stunned an alreadyweakened fighter. But first Ford and then Chevy picked themselves up off the mat and waded back in to the fray, Rocky style. Chrysler took a little longer to get going, but after an infusion of ItalianStallion from Fiat, the battered Balboa of the big three is back. And they’re fighting mad. Witness Chrysler’s unstoppable power-punch: the SRT vehicle lineup. “SRT” stands for “Street and Racing Technology” but it might as well be the abbreviation for “Seriously Righteous Thunder” as the just-launched SRT versions of the Dodge Charger and Challenger, Chrysler 300C and Jeep Cherokee will all attest to.

Canadian cars smush bugs by the billions From page 44

school muscle, and while we live in highly eco-conscious times, it’s hard not to love them. In particular, the new Charger SRT8 is like some kind of anti-Prius, boasting a massive 6.4-litre hemi engine with 465 horsepower. With big brakes, some trick aero bits and a massive wheel and tire combo that means there’s a Viper out there sitting up on blocks, the Charger’s no straight-line onetrick pony. Think M5 competitor. It’s also incredibly good-looking, in an over-the-top, aggressive, Audi-with-rabies way. Along with the Challenger two-door and the more luxurious 300C variant, the Charger should be able to hang with the high-speed German iron for half the dollars. Speaking of which, the specs on the SRT8 Cherokee are equally insane. Capable of a 0100 km/h spring in less than five seconds, this big-stove behemoth is going to have Cayenne owners wondering why their Porsche just got whupped by a Jeep. Chrysler takes top truck spot Here’s more good news for the oncebeleaguered manufacturer. With a minor boom going on in the construction industry,

sales of light trucks are up so far this year. What’s more, Chrysler’s leading the pack. Canadians are buying more Journeys, Rams, Caravans and Wranglers than ever before, and in the first half of 2011, that’s been enough for Chrysler to push past Ford to claim top spot in the light truck category. Granted, the inclusion of mini-vans in the segment is sure to help Chrysler, what with the Dodge Caravan being a Canuck favourite for decades. Still, the light truck category has been GM’s domain for decades, and it’s only recently that the other two domestic manufacturers have been able to pip them at the post. It remains to be seen whether Chrysler can hang on to their lead for the remainder of 2011. Canadian drivers winning war on bugs Anybody who’s ever driven across the prairies in summer knows two things. First, the prairies are boring. Second, getting the accumulated layers of bug guts off the front of your car post-drive is nigh-on impossible. Smashed insects on the windscreen are just one of those things that the driving public takes for granted. It’s a bit disgusting, but

Hyundai No. 1 for brand loyalty really, what’s the big deal? Well, entomologists everywhere are sure to cry out in horror at the numbers that a Netherlands-based biologist came up with. Rounding up 250 willing participants, he had drivers use their cars normally, each week taking a census of the number of bugs that met their grisly end on the license plate. Science is gross. But science also is sometimes crazy. Listen to this: the number of dead insects recorded was 17,836 for a total cumulative distance travelled of slightly less than 31,000 kilometres. Doing a little math to expand the kill-zone to the entire front area of a car, and working out the numbers worldwide, we’re talking trillions upon trillions of bugs being killed every week. The environmental damage must be enormous. But again, if you’ve ever travelled across the prairies in summer, you know there’s plenty more blackflies where

those came from. Hyundai takes number 1 brand loyalty spot Earlier this month, Hyundai was paid an immense compliment by Toyota’s chairman, Yoshimi Inaba, who called the Korean manufacturer, “a very honourable contender in the market.” High praise indeed. No one could say that Hyundai hasn’t earned the kudos, what with their transformation from cheap transportation provider to producer of things like the Genesis luxury sedan and sport coupe. The competition has noticed, and so have the consumers. According to the Kelley Blue Book people, who track customer retention and trending in various ways, Hyundai is now in the top spot for brand loyalty, having

Well, on average, more people who are currently driving Hyundais are shopping the same brand again for their next vehicle than for any other manufacturer.
