Cat survives month sealed in roof Feline’s cries heard by work crew at Carson Graham

James Weldon

CARSON the cat has at most eight lives remaining after surviving as much as a month trapped inside the roof of North Vancouver’s Carson Graham secondary. The seven-year-old feline was rescued by builders last week after a crew working on a new wing of the facility heard mewing coming from an adjoining structure. They found the cat stuck inside a drainage unable or unwilling to extract itself. After firefighters tried unsuccessfully to get it out, the workers tore off flashing until they exposed it. The cat was rake-thin and filthy, but alive. A City of North Vancouver animal control officer took the lost pet, dubbed Carson, to the Mosquito Creek Veterinary Hospital. Staff there have been nursing it carefully back to health in the days since. “Shewascertainlystarving,”saidveterinarian Janice Crook, “and she was completely covered in dirt, but she was purring.” The cat, named in turn Fiona by the clinic’s staff, was suffering from liver failure, a condition that sets in in felines after they haven’t eaten for five days or more. It appears the animal must have had access to a source of water despite dry weather, however, or it

would not have survived as long as it did, said Crook. Initially, the vet gave Carson a 50-50 chance of survival. Over the weekend, a staff member took the animal home, feeding it every half hour and watching it closely, and within a few days had brought it back from the brink. “(The cat) couldn’t hold her head up; my tech didn’t think she’d live,” said Crook. “Now . . . she’s eating on her own, and she’s coming in to talk to us.” The liver condition has also started to reverse, she said. It’s not clear how long the cat had been trapped, but Crook pegged its ordeal at a month. Now, the veterinarian is hoping to return Carson to its owners. The cat has a tattoo in one ear, suggesting it had had a proper home before it got trapped in the school. The number is only partially legible, however, so the clinic has not been able to determine who the animal is registered to. “I’m sure there is a family out there wondering what happened to this cat,” said Crook. The veterinarian is asking anyone who recognizes Carson to contact her office via email at Anyone claiming to be the owner will be asked to provide information relating to the ear tattoo, she said.

District of North Vancouver

Council says demolish house built without permits Kerry Blackadar

DISTRICT of North Vancouver council has voted unanimously to deny a development variance permit for an addition to a house on Capilano Road, rejecting the opportunity for the home owner to bring the structure into compliance with the municipality’s zoning bylaws. Built without permits, the completed structure — a two-storey, 1,554-square-foot addition — is essentially large enough to host a second family. The unauthorized addition, attached to the original house by a small hallway, does not comply

with several of the district’s zoning bylaws. Dwellings built in residential single-family zones require minimum rear and side yard setback, and have restrictions on maximum building depth and eave height. Tucked behind a thicket of tall trees at 4511 Capilano Rd., the home appears well-screened from the street, however the project has been on the radar of the both the district and the Edgemont and Upper Capilano Community Association for several years. “In addition to the scope of the project itself being completed without the necessary permits, we found the applicants — the clients — not to comply with the stop-work order issued by the district on numerous occasions since April of See District page 3

No charges for tasering 11-year-old

Fewer red-light cameras, more pics Jane Seyd

WVPD’s Prince George incident review wraps up after 5 months

THERE will be fewer red-light cameras watching motorists on North Shore roads following a $23million expansion of the province’s camera enforcement program.

James Weldon

THE Prince George Mounties who tasered an 11year-old boy last spring acted within the bounds of the law, according to the West Vancouver police who investigated the incident.

West Vancouver Chief Const. Peter Lepine made the announcement via the force’s website Thursday afternoon, more than five months after the probe began. It provided little further detail. The statement marks the end of a protracted inquiry that began in April when Prince George RCMP stunned the child while responding to a reported stabbing. Officers were called to a home there at about 5:30 p.m. April 7 when someone reported that a youth had allegedly wounded a 37-year-old man with a sharp weapon. The Mounties arrived to find the victim bleeding and the suspected attacker gone. The officers eventually tracked the boy to a neighbouring house, where they coaxed him outside. When he emerged, he was tasered. It’s not clear if he was armed at the time or threatening the officers. The youth and the alleged stabbing victim were both taken to hospital and later released. As has become common practice in police incidents in recent years, the RCMP called in a municipal force — in this case West Vancouver’s — to investigate, the idea being that officers from a separate organization would be less likely to be suspected of bias. West Vancouver investigators flew to Prince George a few days See Other page 5

Vaughan quizzed on complaints re Marley Benjamin Alldritt

VIVIAN Vaughan, former councillor and mayoral candidate in the District of West Vancouver, testified in B.C. Supreme Court Wednesday as part of David Marley’s defamation lawsuit against Peter Kains. Marley is suing Kains for comments he made during an all-candidates debate at Highlands United Church in the run-up to the 2009 provincial election. Kains told the 200 people present that Marley was under investigation by the West Vancouver police and the attorney general. West Vancouver police officer Sgt. Jeffrey Wright testified Monday that although he had looked into an election complaint Vaughan filed against Marley — and also complaints filed by Marley himself — there had never been a police investigation nor had the attorney See Marley page 5

TRAFFIC approaches the intersection of Main St. and Mountain Highway under the watchful eye of a red-light camera that will go digital later this year. This intersection is one of three high-accident intersections on the North Shore that will be scrutinized by new digital traffic cameras.

But drivers who make a habit of lead-footing it at the three worst crash locations face a much higher chance of getting a caught. Under the new program, digital cameras will be ready to snap licence plates of drivers who run red lights at three intersections: Marine Drive and Taylor Way, Marine Drive and Capilano Road and Main Street at Mountain Highway. Those are among the intersections with the worst crash records on the North Shore, according to ICBC. The bottleneck at Marine Drive and Taylor results in 135 averages crashes annually. The nearby intersection of Marine Drive and Capilano Road clocks an average of 104 crashes a year. On the other side of the North Shore, the intersection at Main Street and Mountain Highway See Eight page 5

District seeks court order for demolition From page 1 2008 to be of particular significance in not supporting the development variance proposal,” said Louise Nagle, who represented the community association’s executive at the council meeting on Monday night. “When residents compromise the system, they should be held accountable,” added Nagle, noting that members of the executive, including herself, had applied for permits in the past and followed the district process in doing so. On Monday night, the home owner, Oleg Tchoubarov, pleaded with council and the community for a second chance, claiming that the situation was largely due to a misunderstanding. “It is not like I am trying to ignore things,” said Tchoubarov. “Please, if it is possible, let me go through the normal process.” A former tenant of the property, Kelly Moon appeared before council on Monday night to testify about the pre-existence of an addition on the property as far back to 1993, prior to Tchoubarov’s purchase of the home, and his ultimate residence there from 2003 to 2007. “I viewed the property after they had done the renovations, and I can tell you that the perimeter was exactly the same — the only difference was is that it was higher vertically,” said Moon. Tchoubarov was also joined by Vancouver architect, Doug Massie, who testified during the public input session about the estimated age of the addition’s foundation. “When we first looked at it, we thought that the foundations for that building were at least 30 years old,” said Massie, who reassured council that if the variance permit were issued, there would be no problem achieving the engineering requirements to bring the addition into compliance with the district’s zoning bylaws. According to municipal staff, the only record of any kind of permit for a structure in the area is for a small cinder block-accessory building issued back in the 1970s.

A two-storey addition to the original house at 4511 Capilano Rd. that was built without municipal permits will have to be demolished if a court action is successful. Monday night, councillors expressed concern over the precedent that Tchoubarov’s case would set if a variance permit were issued. “We made every effort to stop it and bring the whole process into compliance and that is not the situation we find ourselves in,” said Coun. Roger Bassam, indicating his support of the motion to deny the development variance permit. Since the spring of 2008, municipal staff say they have made numerous efforts — from attempted telephone calls and written letters to the delivery of an on-site field notice — requesting that construction be stopped. In 2009, construction had not ceased, and the

district obtain a court injunction to have the illegally constructed work removed. There is now a notice on the home’s title that indicates a council resolution has been made in relation to the property. As recently as Wednesday morning, the property remained listed for sale on several real estate sites, with no indication to potential buyers that the addition is in contravention of district’s building regulation and zoning bylaws. If the district is successful at trial, set for Sept. 22 and 23, Tchoubarov will be required by court order to remove the fully renovated addition, or otherwise, face the consequences of being held in contempt of court.

Other reviews still to happen From page 3 after the incident to interview witnesses and gather other information. They interviewed the officers involved some time after that. Lepine reviewed their final report and reached his conclusion based on the evidence they had gathered. “The actions of the officers involved did not violate the Criminal Code of Canada, and we are not recommending charges,” said the chief in the open letter on the WVPD site. Lepine did not address the question of a possible weapon, and did not provide any further details about the encounter. “Our investigation is only one of many that will ultimately examine the circumstances surrounding this incident,” he said. “My team and I fully support any and all efforts to get to the bottom of what happened and to make sure that any policies, procedures or protocols that need to be changed to protect public safety are changed.” Lepine, in Prince George to present his findings, could not be reached by deadline.

Marley seeks punitive damages Centennial Theatre From page 3 general ever become involved. On Tuesday, Kains stated that his comments were based on an unsigned letter that appeared at his office the day of the debate. Looking at the letter, Vaughan confirmed that it was a heavily redacted version of the letter she had written to the West Vancouver police complaining about several aspects of the 2008 municipal election, including Marley’s conduct. After looking into her complaints, and also those filed by Marley, the police dropped the matter. Under questioning from Kains’ lawyer Rod Sieg, Vaughan said she had not created the version that found its way to Kains’ office, nor did she have any idea how it got there. In fact, she said, she still hadn’t even met Kains. There were other copies of the letter in circulation though, Vaughan said. Frustrated with the police

decision, she sent a copy to the provincial attorney general and to the offices of West Vancouver MLAs Ralph Sultan and Joan McIntyre. Marley’s lawyer, Don Baron, pressed Vaughan for details of her allegations against Marley but Sieg soon rose to object, saying the issue was irrelevant. “This is obviously another axe to grind,” he said, and Justice Elaine Adair agreed. Baron began his closing arguments Wednesday afternoon, arguing that Kains, a supporter of Sultan’s, maliciously made false and damaging statements about Marley. Suggesting such incidents deter people from running for office, Marley is seeking both compensation and punitive damages. Similar cases Baron cited have led to awards in the tens of thousands of dollars. “This was an ambush in front of 200 voters,” said Baron. The trial continues. Kains’ lawyer was expected to make his defence arguments Thursday afternoon.

Eight N. Shore camera locations reduced to 3

From page 3

nets an average of 104 accidents a year. In the previous red-light program, equipment was in place to snap photos of offending motorists at eight different intersections on the North Shore. But that program relied on 30 film cameras being rotated around 120 provincial locations. To process a ticket, someone actually had to climb up and retrieve the film. The new program uses digital cameras that can send photos of guilty motorists’ licence plates electronically to police. Signs will be prominently placed warning drivers the cameras are in place.


According to ICBC, the new 140 provincial locations for the cameras are based on an assessment of where the technology would be most useful in reducing serious crashes. In the old intersection program, red-light cameras resulted in 20,000 tickets and revenues of about $3.3 million each year. Under the new program, the province expects to hand out 33,000 tickets and generate $4 million in fines, which are distributed to municipalities. Drivers caught on candid camera will get a $167 fine, which can be reduced by $25 if it’s paid within 30 days. A map with locations of all the redlight camera locations can be found on ICBC’s website at

Hot rocks I

F geothermal energy is the answer to Canada’s future energy needs, we should at least know that by now. But 100 years after the world’s first commercial geothermal power plant was built in Italy in 1911, we don’t. The concept of tapping the earth’s crust for the heat contained within and converting it to electrical energy is neither new nor radical. Yet those in the Canadian geothermal business say they are viewed with skepticism when promoting the potential to tap “hot rocks” close to the surface in western and northern Canada. Here’s hoping a new report released Thursday by a team of 12 scientists led by Stephen Grasby at the federal Geological Survey of Canada might throw a spotlight on research that has the potential to radically change

Canada’s energy landscape. The report claims Canada is sitting on top of geothermal energy equivalent to one-million times its current electrical consumption. If this is true, one has to ask why the heck we aren’t pouring resources into unlocking the earth’s heat rather than considering projects like the Site C dam, the cost of which is already guessed to have almost tripled from its original $3billion estimate. Yes, tapping thermal energy will require deep-drilling technology and some sort of fracking, but so does modern oil and gas drilling. Let’s hope our federal and provincial governments will see the sense in supporting immediate research into the long-term cost-effectiveness of both forms of energy extraction.

Don’t count the U.S. out as a superpower

I’M uncomfortable sounding upbeat. It’s so out of character.

But — in the face of assured opinions that are becoming conventional wisdom, which has proven unwise so often in history — that America is in terminal decline, finished as the world’s uncontested superpower . . . well, I’d hedge that bet. The solemn marking of the 9-11 anniversary was a corrective to the confident stereotype. Not the skin of self-celebrating showmanship — the Americans are as adept at that as the British are at staging incredible royal weddings and funerals — but the underlying substance that can’t be faked. Oddly, they are a strangely unknown people, even by their nearest neighbours, who are not always pleased by the propinquity — while enjoying a rising conviction of their superiority. Americans have an inner toughness, the connective tissue of a powerful national

This Just In

Trevor Lautens faith that stunningly unites even, or especially, so-called disadvantaged groups, and, yes, a Godfaith too, that confounds the picture of a bankrupt, high-unemployment, appallingly fat people stuffed with fast foods and the listless escapism of violent films and stupid television, warring unwisely abroad and dysfunctional at home. They unfurl a flag at a football game that looks half as big as the field. They puzzle their secular Western allies with


unashamed public prayer. They have a track record of resilience. They have an instinct for reinvention. Problems are, in a curious way, their most important product — challenges to solve. Don’t count them out. The referee has never reached anywhere near 10 in their narrative of frothy exuberance and hair-raising dives. The obvious global contender for No. 1 is China. Too obvious, if New Brunswick-born Troy Parfitt, who spent a dozen years in Taiwan and South Korea, is correct. His book Why China Will Never Rule the World: Travel in the Two Chinas won’t be the last word, but as North Vancouver resident Jonathan Manthorpe agreed in a Vancouver Sun review: “China is unlikely to be an influential superpower because its current regime has no vision, its economy has developed no capacity for innovation” — thus the fake Western luxury goods and the continuing

industrial espionage that includes a Canadian branch — “and there is no sense of optimism.” Economic power alone won’t make the cut, Parfitt assured CKNW’s Sean Leslie, and its class/income divisions with 800 million in poverty make the United States look red socialist. The Americans have severe problems, including combatting terrorism with growing unfreedom in order to protect its freedom. They need more fresh green vegetables and a better night’s sleep.

••• Speaking of terrorism: Prime Minister Stephen Harper recently said “the major threat (to Canada’s security) . . . is still Islamicism.” Bob Rae and all the little and big liberals went nuts! You can’t say that in inclusive, tolerant Canada! Not one of them asked: But is he right? •••

And add this to the Harper file: Unless I missed it, nobody among the left liberals acknowledged the Conservative prime minister’s graciousness in granting New Democrat Jack Layton a public funeral unprecedented for one of his status since D’Arcy McGee’s in 1866. Not one of that surly, bitter deposed establishment or its media footmen had the decency to return Harper’s graciousness.

••• But enough frivolity. The coffee shop in Dundarave’s mid-24th block, Ariel’s, has closed, the second on the site to do so. Quiet. Peaceful. Nice. What went wrong? Quiet, peaceful and nice, that’s what. We are a herd species, fearful of solitude and of being left out of the scene, the action, the gossip. Nearby Starbucks and Delany’s and the Bakehouse prosper. Ariel’s patrons bought a toonie’s worth of coffee and settled back for a morning’s newspaper

reading. Fatal.

••• I empathize with MP John Weston’s decision to move his family to Ottawa from his West VancouverSunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country riding. That West Coast commute meets the Criminal Code definition of abuse. I dined recently at the Saturna Island home of Pat Carney, retired senator and trade minister during Ottawa’s most gruelling task of the time, negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement. She’s pounds lighter in weight and heart since leaving the weird MPs’ polarized diet of official banquets and hasty takeout/airline chow, and has resumed her journalistic career — there’s a weightloss program for anyone — notably with a superb piece on Ireland’s economic woes. ••• See It’s page 10

Will Liberals raise corporate taxes? HERE we go again.

After almost getting itself above water on the fiscal front, the B.C. Liberal government now finds itself once again mired in a financial quagmire. This year’s budget has ballooned to almost $3 billion, and the government’s plan to balance the books by 2013 will require it to find an additional $500 million. Finding that kind of money isn’t going to be easy. There is little sign revenues flowing to government are going to increase substantially any time soon, as a faltering U.S. economy and a shaky European debt crisis threaten to smother significant economic growth for at least a year, if not longer. So the question becomes: Do the B.C. Liberals raise taxes or cut program spending in order to balance the books? Either option is fraught with political peril, but I suspect cutting governmentfunded services and programs is a more dangerous path to follow for Premier Christy Clark as she steers her government towards the next election. Her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, had used up all his political capital by the time he left office largely because he had become associated with the reduction or elimination of all kinds of things so many people had come to rely on in their daily lives. The HST debacle simply sealed the deal. It was piled on a stack of negatives that was becoming higher and higher all the time. The B.C. Liberals love to brag about cutting everyone’s income taxes. While it’s certainly true most people over the years received significant decreases in their income taxes, those same folks found

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

themselves having to dig into their pocketbooks more and more to pay for all kinds of other government services (the latest being the big increase in medical service premiums). Campbell and his government also became unpopular because of such decisions as reducing gaming grant payouts, which inflicted enormous political pain for relatively small fiscal gain. If Clark follows the same path, her personal popularity — arguably, her government’s only potential strength right now — will begin to erode, a dangerous development for someone who has to face the electorate within 20 months. Her government will no doubt freeze or reduce some spending in some areas, and it can do so without inflicting upon itself too much political damage. It can also likely stare down public sector unions that want significant wage increases. But a truly balanced budget by 2013 will likely have to include a boost in revenue, which brings us to the sensitive area of raising taxes. Now, raising income taxes seems like a non-starter to me. Even adopting a potentially popular “soak the rich” philosophy doesn’t raise

enough money because this province simply doesn’t have enough millionaires. Increasing user fees at every turn also seems politically dangerous (although more user fees are likely inevitable in the future). But what about raising corporate taxes? Such a suggestion would have been greeted with horror by the corporate-friendly Campbell administration, but Clark is trying to show in as many ways possible that she is significantly different than her predecessor. There is no better way to do that than to ask the business community to pay more than it currently does to help balance the books (with the promise of lowering those same taxes when the government can afford to do so). The corporate tax rate has gone from 16 per cent to 10 per cent since the B.C. Liberals came to power, and while I agree that too high a rate can have a negative impact on investment, the timing seems right for a bit of a boost. Clark has already signalled she’s prepared to raise corporate taxes, as that was part of her government’s pitch to lower the HST by two points — she proposed the idea of raising the corporate tax rate by two percentage points. The voters said no to the HST, but I don’t think they were also saying no to higher corporate taxes. However, you can be sure they will say no to any big cuts to services or programs. That approach was Campbell’s baby. Here’s a chance for the new boss to blaze a different trail. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global BC.


Years Old!

Join our celebration with our New Balance Day, Saturday, Sept. 17th at both our locations When Karen and Peter Butler opened Forerunners in August 1986, their mission was to provide their clients the very best in customer service. Twenty five years later, this philosophy is still evident as you enter their West 4th Avenue Vancouver store. Forerunners expanded to North Vancouver in August 2003, opening a second store with partners Sarge Dusang and Dave Singh. The 980 Marine Drive location has served Forerunners well, allowing the company to provide North Shore residents with excellent, convenient service. Buying shoes at Forerunners takes a little bit longer than at other stores. “We are very careful to assess and measure the foot to determine the appropriate shoe for the customer’s needs. The old Brannock measuring device is even used – something that most shoe stores no longer use”, says store manager Todd Jangula. “People really appreciate this extra effort to establish the best shoe for them”, adds long-time staff member Arthur Boileau.

ANGELA Burns says her unusual mailbox still requires work after being vandalized for the third time in two years, but is encouraged by offers of help from strangers.

WV community rallies round landmark train

Dear Editor: My family has lived on the North Shore for more than 35 years. We own the house with the model train on Marine Drive near 28th Street. The train was built close to 50 years ago and serves as our mailbox. It stands more than a metre high on tracks and weighs well over 100 kilograms. On more than one occasion, I have seen adults posing and taking their photos beside it. Children of course also love it, and I enjoy hearing their excited little voices as they run around checking out all the myriad of little details that make it such a special little train. That is why it saddens us to have it vandalized yet again. For the third time in less than two years, we have awoken to find it pushed onto its side. This has broken the wooden trestle that it sits upon and the fence behind that is on our property. It takes at least three or four very strong people to lift it back up again and then there is the question of fixing the wooden structure that

is now broken. Perhaps we will have to place it in cement pads. While we lament the fact that there are people in our community who take joy in just destroying things for the sake of it, we are also encouraged by the support we have received from the community. Numerous people have driven down our driveway looking upset and asking, “What happened to the train?” We have even had offers from two complete strangers to help us fix it. The reason they state is that they grew up driving past our train and now they have children who also love to see it as they pass. In some ways a little train might seem like a small thing in a busy community with so many other distractions. But for us and for many of you who have approached us with your words of concern, it is a West Vancouver landmark that brings a smile to many a face, both young and old, and we will do what it takes to preserve it for future smiles.

A District of North Vancouver staff report favours expanding provincial recycling efforts by adding a deposit to milk and milk-substitute containers.

Got milk? Maybe you gotta have a deposit

DNV council lobbies province to expand deposit-refund system Kerry Blackadar

CONSUMERS may have to haul more than just their sticky pop cans and rancid beer bottles back to the store for a return on their deposit. Pretty soon, milk containers could be added to the list of refundable receptacles. At Monday’s council meeting, District of North Vancouver councillors voted in support of a staff recommendation to send a letter to the Minister of the Environment requesting that milk and milk-substitute beverage containers be added to the provincial deposit-refund system in order to encourage recycling efforts. The decision to send the letter received support from most of council, but Couns. Roger Bassam and Mike Little warned that adding milk containers to the provincial deposit-refund system has the potential to turn sour. “What this equates to is creating a massive inconvenience for the consumer, which then turns into a tax,” said Bassam, who went on to question the value of the bottle deposit-refund system as a whole. “Ultimately the goal is not revenue, but recycling,” said Bassam, who suggested streamlining the recycling process for residents by maintaining only the curb-side, or blue box, recycling system. “If we are ever going to send a letter, it should be to get rid of the nickel deposits and get us down to a single-stream, where we can actually do some real recycling.” Little, a father with four children, also voiced concerns over the financial burden the milk deposit would have on families. “It will only add

a cost, particularly to young families,” and a cost to the community, “when binners come through and take all the product out — and make a mess on my driveway.” “Frankly, the current system is working quite well,” he added. “I don’t think there is a need for this.” But, according to the staff report — that drew on statistics compiled by a not-for-profit product stewardship agency that manages a voluntary milk container take-back program for the dairy industry — the current recovery rate of milk and milk substitute containers is less than 10 per cent, compared to nearly 80 per cent for beverage containers part of the depositrefund system. In 2009, Alberta became the first jurisdiction to introduce a deposit on all milk and liquid-cream beverage containers, and, according to the district’s staff report, the prairie province has witnessed a considerable jump in milk container recovery rates. “If people are buying a lot of milk, I don’t think it’s such a hardship to take the containers back to the store in the first place,” said Coun. Robin Hicks, who voted in favour of sending the letter to the Minister of the Environment and jested that council consider allowing residents to keep dairy cows in their backyards to escape the high price of milk controlled by the B.C. Milk Marketing Board. If the district’s proposal is adopted by the provincial government, the curb-side recycling program would not be affected and milk containers would continue to be accepted. Similar reports were also submitted to City of North Vancouver and District of West Vancouver councils.

INQUIRING REPORTER EARLIER this week, District of North Vancouver council decided to lobby the provincial government to put a deposit on milk cartons. The idea behind attaching deposits to recyclable containers is that while people may pay a bit more up-front, they can get their money back if they recycle. But some feel the measure goes too far. Would you be willing to pay more for products if you knew you could get the deposit back and more containers were kept out of landfills? Find us on Facebook and tell us what you think or add your comment to Inquiring Reporter at www.nsnews. com. — Benjamin Alldritt

Gordon Stewart North Vancouver I recycle everything. So it would be pointless to do it to me, but if it gets people recycling more, let’s do it. It’s better for the environment.

Would you support paying a deposit on a wider range of containers?

George Fuller North Vancouver I would, yes. I’d like to see more recycling all around. It helps clean up the planet and that’s better for my grandchildren.

Kam Janati North Vancouver Yes. I usually recycle anyway, so why not? Recycling is good.

WV pedestrians hit by cars, tickets

James Weldon

WEST Vancouver police are telling pedestrians to behave themselves after two people were hit by cars on the weekend while apparently darting into traffic. On Friday, a pedestrian in her teens was running to catch a bus on Marine Drive near 14th Street when she stepped into the path of a Jeep Cherokee, according to police. The impact threw the 15year-old up over the hood and on to the windshield. Fortunately, she escaped the accident with only scrapes and bruises. Investigators concluded the vehicle had the right of way. The next day, another woman was struck just a few blocks east when she got off a bus near Park Royal and stepped into the

road without looking, said police. The driver of an Infiniti fourdoor, unable to stop in time, ran her down. Again, the 22-year-old suffered only minor injuries. She walked away from the collision and later turned up at the West Vancouver police station to report it. Police issued both women tickets for traffic violations. The incidents should serve as a reminder to the public to obey the law when crossing the road, said Cpl. Jag Johal, a spokesman for the WVPD. “If you’re outside the crosswalk, you’re compromising your safety,” he said. “(Drivers) aren’t always paying attention. They could be texting; they could be changing the radio; they could be looking somewhere else.” Worse, it can put others at risk, added Johal. “You can startle someone driving,” he said. “They could swerve and hit another person on the sidewalk.”

Veronica MacInnes Surrey I suppose so. They’re starting to do it with everything now. I’d be happier if they stopped selling plastic water bottles though.

Dave Assaf Nanaimo No I wouldn’t. I live on the Island and we get our garbage picked up every two weeks. I call it a tax at the grocery store. People are already recycling — this is overkill.

It’s election time, yawn From page 6 Speaking of the media, again — horrors! Is it possible that all North Shore mayors will be acclaimed in November? Darrell Mussatto and Richard Walton, mayors of the City and District of North Vancouver respectively, waltzed back to their offices unopposed in 2008. West Vancouver Mayor Pam Goldsmith-Jones is leaving gracefully and Coun. Michael Smith seeks the office. Two months to municipal elections and no others are in sight. Former councillor Vivian Vaughan has been following West Vancouver town hall closely and mused about running but, on further musing, likely will run for a council seat instead.

Another airline sued for ‘tax’ Japan Airlines fifth to be hit with lawsuit over hidden ticket fees Jane Seyd

A North Vancouver businessman has launched a lawsuit against a second airline, alleging that Japan Airlines Co. Ltd. charged him a “tax” on an airline ticket that was not a tax at all, but simply an extra fee. Ahmet Kadioglu filed the lawsuit against the airline in B.C. Supreme Court Aug. 29. Last month he filed a similar claim against another airline, Cathay Pacific. In his most recent statement of claim, Kadioglu said he bought a ticket from Japan Airlines on Nov. 11, 2010 for return travel to Tokyo’s Narita Airport. The cost of the ticket was US$746. But Kadioglu said he paid almost $300 more for the final price of the ticket, including US$222 for a special tax or fee. Kadioglu has argued in his lawsuit the airline engaged in deceptive business practices when it charged him that

amount because the money was not a tax or fee being levied by government or a third party — such as an airport authority — but was “simply additional monies charged, collected and retained (by the airline) for its own use.” Kadioglu’s lawyer, James Poyner, is asking the courts to certify both cases as class-action lawsuits. He is also asking the courts to demand the airlines pay back customers all amounts they paid that were falsely represented as taxes over the past six years. Japan Airlines is the fifth airline to be hit with a lawsuit over the tax issue. Poyner has previously filed lawsuits against British Airways, Lufthansa and Air Canada, alleging similar practices. Poyner said previously that airlines’ labelling extra fees as taxes would be similar to a client coming into Poyner’s office and getting charged an extra “tax” of $100, which really just went to paying the lawyer’s office rent. Airlines have got away with the practice, he said, because people are used to paying taxes and haven’t questioned it. Poyner said the extra fees also make it very difficult for consumers to compare airline ticket prices that usually don’t include them in advertised fares. None of the claims in the lawsuits have yet been proven in court. Japan Airlines has not yet filed a statement of defence.

Teen tourist flown from Seymour after fall James Weldon

A teen touring the North Shore from Finland had a close call late last week after she fell headfirst onto rocks on Mount Seymour. The 15-year-old was hiking back from the mountain’s first peak with classmates just before noon Thursday when she lost her

footing. She tumbled just a short distance onto a boulder, but took the full impact on her head, knocking herself unconscious, according to rescuers. When paramedics and volunteers arrived on scene, the victim was still semi-conscious and showing signs of severe concussion. A North Shore Rescue flight team airlifted the teen to a waiting air ambulance, which took her on to hospital. No update on the victim’s condition has been released.

KARISSA Barry remembers what it was like to take her first ballet class at age seven. “I was like, ‘This feels really awkward but I like it,’” the Vancouver dancer laughs. “I’m pointing my toe and I have no idea what’s going on.” Having caught the bug, Barry continued with her studies, moving into additional genres like modern, tap, jazz and hip hop and as an adult, has turned her love for the art into a successful career as an in-demand freelance dancer, choreographer and teacher working primarily in the contemporary genre. “I feel like I didn’t really have a choice, that the passion and the drive took over,” she says. An Edmonton, Alta., native, Barry has called Montreal and Vancouver home

in recent years, dancing locally with Wen Wei Dance as well as MovEnt, with whom she’s set to take the stage at Burnaby’s Shadbolt Centre for the Arts next week, Sept. 23-24. Barry is among the featured performers at Dances for a Small Stage, her third appearance with the unique performance series, seeing a diverse array of artists perform new contemporary works on a 10-by-13-foot stage. Her previous two appearances saw her perform solos created by others, though this time around, she’s choreographed a solo for herself, something she rarely does. “I usually choreograph on groups or more than one person,” says Barry. “And I usually don’t involve myself in my own choreography so this has been a good experience just to try it out and see how it translates.” While there’s added pressure coinciding with performing one’s own work, Dances for a Small Stage is typically presented in a more intimate and therefore comfortable setting than some of the bigger and more expensive venues in the city. “It’s a little bit more laid back,” says Barry. “It’s open and it’s friendly. . . . There’s a little bit of room to have play instead of perfection and that really, actually, I find, works better for the performers when they have less pressure See Barry page 36

Burnham shares his love of West Coast

■ Drew Burnham. Published by Bau-Xi Gallery. As you turn the pages in this beautifully reproduced collection the colours leap off the page. Brilliant highlights contrast against rich shadows as the light plays off the subject matter. Drew Burnham’s paintings feel like they are in motion. Looking at his art works you can sense the movement on the surface of the ocean, the sway of tree branches or a breeze you almost feel as it brushes against the long grass. For the past 24 years Burnham has called the North Shore home. He has explored our local trails capturing the lush environment that grows up against our community. He has shared his love of the West Coast through fabulous creations that seem to stretch into another dimension. Burnham documents his subject matter photographically and will later sketch out the scene then work from that for the painting. In his field studies he looks for the “variances, rhythm characteristics, shape details big and small, and any other aspects which stand forth as important.” These impressions are all part of Burnham’s process before brush ever touches canvas. The majority of his subjects featured in this

Beautiful basics define debut Manisha Krishnan

LET’S face it; we all want to buy local, but sometimes, especially when it comes to fashion, that just isn’t possible.

TWEET CHIC Follow us on Twitter @NSNLook.

Ladies need variety, and quite often we turn to the runways of London, Paris and New York for our inspiration. But luckily, West Vancouver designer Lindsay Walsh has just stepped onto the scene, and judging from the debut collections under her label Standing Armed, she understands what urban girls want — and need. For fall-winter, Walsh, 29, focused on “classic cocktail hour” pieces, using plenty of black, as well as wool and silk, her favourite material. “The Standing Armed woman is someone who has a secure job, some financial stability, they’re well travelled, well educated . . . but they’re really social and they have different activities they want to go to — wine with the girls after work or gallery openings,” explains Walsh. “It was really perfect to make pieces that are really classic, really focused on really great fabrics.” Although Walsh’s esthetic is well-made basics, many of her designs include unique details. The charcoal long-sleeved shift dress in a wool-silk blend ($435), for example, has a cutout at the back, giving it a sexy edge. Pair it with booties and leather leggings for the office, and then switch to sheer tights when you hit the town. For a fancy dinner, try the black pencil dress with boat neck and deep V back ($395). Add gold accessories and red lipstick for some added See Morocco page 24

WEST Vancouver designer Lindsay Walsh recently launched her Standing Armed clothing line, which focuses on beautifully made basics. Her fall-winter 2011 collection includes the long sleeved charcoal shift (top right) in wool/silk, great for the office or a night out, and a black pencil dress with a deep V back (top left). For a pop of colour, try the royal purple silk mini dress with pleating at the waist and hem (bottom left).

Morocco inspires spring line From page 23 oomph. While Walsh was influenced by the East Coast for fallwinter, her ideas for springsummer 2012, which she recently debuted at a show in Vancouver, came from a little farther away — Morocco. “I just love it there,” she says, adding she travelled to the North African nation in 2007. “I came across some paintings of gypsies, and I thought ‘I love this combination of the way they layer up all these different fabrics.’ There’s all this rich texture and rich colour and rich print.” Her favourite pieces include the silk maxi skirts — “they’re just such an easy thing to throw on” — done in

Lindsay Walsh chocolate and gold and multicolour prints. For evening, she likes the silk Joovi dress in a dark brown print with belted waist and deep V open back. The Dantela ivory lace sheath is another standout, perfect for a mid-summer

yacht cruise. Walsh, who was born in Vancouver and spent her teen years in West Van, said she’s pleased with the work she’s done so far. “Seeing the pieces on the models and seeing it all work together, that’s a moment where you’re like, ‘Great. This is really working.’” Although travelling is a big part of her life, she says she’s committed to working on her business from home for the time being. “Vancouver as a city is just stunning. I feel really grounded here,” she says. “Maybe it’s age or maybe it’s just kind of where I am right now, but it’s good to have a home base.” Standing Armed clothing can be purchased online at

AN IMPORTANCE NOTICE... FOR WHISTLER SECOND HOMEOWNERS and WHISTLER RESIDENTS WHO WILL NOT BE IN WHISTLER ON ELECTION DAY. YOU MAY STILL BE ABLE TO VOTE BY MAIL. Many people own property in Whistler and qualify to vote but will not be able to physically vote in Whistler on November 19th for a variety of reasons including illness, injury or travel. Whistler has recently adopted a NEW mail ballot bylaw (No. 1975) that will allow your voice to be heard by completing a mail-in ballot. NOTE: The West Vancouver polling station will not be available this election. The process is simple, but the time lines are tight. To vote by mail ballot you will need to do the following: 1. Go to and click on the “Municipal Hall” tab. 2. Scroll down and click the “Municipal Elections” tab. 3. Scroll down and click the “Application to Vote by Mail” link. 4. Complete the application and return it immediately by email, fax or post.

THE Fran Jaré Trio (featuring Jaré on keyboards, saxophonist Dave Say and Sean Cronin on bass) play outside Whole Foods Market at the Village in Park Royal, Sunday, Sept. 18 from 2 to 4 p.m. as part of the Village’s seventh birthday celebrations.

5. Non-resident voters (second homeowners) will also need to download the consent form located under the “Non-resident Property Elector” heading. 6. You will be mailed a mail ballot package between November 3rd and November 18th. 7. Complete the package (similar to the HST package) and return by November 18th. YOU HAVE NOW SUCCESSFULLY VOTED BY MAIL! Whistler’s Coalition of Concerned Citizens is promoting this process because more than ever Whistler electors need to have an opportunity to have their voices heard. Now for the first time people who are away in November or can’t be in Whistler on Election Day or the other advanced voting dates have an opportunity to vote. You are no doubt familiar with some of the issues that affect all taxpayers in Whistler. Under the current Mayor and Council costs have escalated beyond the ability of taxpayers to pay. Salaries of senior municipal staff have increased over 25% in the last three years and the recently adopted budget of $77.6m is excessive and irresponsible. It is essential that we elect a new Mayor and Council who share a desire for fiscal responsibility and return to an emphasis on core service delivery rather than some of the expensive and unnecessary initiatives that have emanated from the RMOW. The WCCC will meet with candidates in the coming months and look forward to supporting and promoting, through newsletters, direct mail and print ads, those who best demonstrate an understanding, interest and desire for fiscal responsibility.

Duffers keep it real on new golf series Julie Crawford Contributing Writer ■ Highways To Fairways debuts locally on Chek TV at 7 p.m. Saturdays, and plays on TVtropolis and Fox Sports World Canada networks.

YOU don’t need to be a scratch golfer to enjoy the new golf travel show Highways To Fairways. In fact, it’s probably better if you’re a duffer like Charlie and Wayde.

Charlie Teljeur and Wayde Greer hack their way around the course, spending about equal time in the rough and in the water as they do on the fairway. But it’s not about the golf, it’s about the unique courses the guys visit, and the journey that takes them there. As the camera rolls, the pair travel cover more than 19,000 kilometres in 60 days, touring quirky courses in Canada and the U.S. and facing homesickness, RV trouble and some very questionable golf along the way. Their mandate: play courses that are public, affordable, and with unique qualities viewers will enjoy. “We think there’s way too much starch in golf,” says Teljeur. “We appreciate what the high-end courses do, but there are lots of people out there who don’t spend $10,000 on golf clubs.” Wayde agrees, noting that 90 per cent of golfers can’t break 90 on the course, and 70 per cent can’t break 100. “We are the public player,” he says. That means, for example, that the guys skip the tony Wyndham championship course and instead head to Brevard, North Carolina, where llamas were their caddies. They golf on the grounds of a maximum-security prison, and from inside the oval at the Indianapolis 500. They chat with actor Morgan Freeman in his Ground Zero Blues Club, in Clarksdale Mississippi. The guys met on the ice playing hockey, which might account for Teljeur’s Happy Gilmore-style of driving the ball. (Both men are lefties.) Personal crises were the genesis of the See Golf page 41

No crime enjoying this Irish gem Julie Crawford Contributing Writer

■ The Guard. Written and directed by John Michael McDonagh. Starring Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle. Rating: 9 (out of 10) Gerry Boyle comes across as a racist. On occasion, he hires prostitutes. He curses like a dock worker, back when women didn’t curse but dock workers did. And somehow, Brendan Gleeson makes Gerry loveable: just the kind of guy we want to see make a clean getaway. Sgt. Gerry Boyle, as he’s better known, is the self-proclaimed “last of the independents” in Galway. He has a deep mistrust of his fellow policemen from Dublin, with their fancy cell phones and computers. So he gets a real shock when he hears that an American — an AfricanAmerican, no less — is heading to his patch of Ireland to investigate a $500 million drug deal that’s about to go down in tiny Connemara. “Did you grow up in the projects?” Gerry asks FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle), who’s actually from See Unlikely page 34

Soul Surfer tour visiting Canadian theatres Alicia Pereira Contributing Writer

IMAGINE living on the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii, surfing, hanging out with friends and family, not a worry in the world — except catching the perfect wave. Then bam! All that is taken away in a split second by a tiger shark. Soul Surfer is a film based on the true story about Bethany Hamilton who, at the age of 13 lost her left arm to a shark attack. The movie details the events surrounding Hamilton’s experience and her struggle during the aftermath. The film had a profound impact on one of Hamilton’s fellow surfers, Sonya Balmores, another local surfer. From Kauai, the surfer-turned model/ actress plays Melina Birch, Hamilton’s nemesis in the movie. The role hit close to home because Balmores grew up surfing next to Hamilton. Both competed in surfing contests and although Hamilton was a few years younger, she knew the young

surfer was riding a high wave towards a successful career. “Even when she was 11 or 12 everyone knew she was going to be a professional

surfer, she won every contest. So I have known the Hamiltons and watched Bethany kick butt for a while now,” says Balmores.

LOTTE Reiniger’s classic animated film Die abenteur des Prinzen Achmed (The Adventures of Prince Achmed) screens at Pacific Cinémathèque Sunday, Sept. 18 at 1 p.m. Based on stories in 1001 Arabian Nights the 1926 film is one of the first full-length animated films and has been restored with colour tinting as well as a new recording of Wolfgang Zeller’s original score. The film is a work of cinematic art for all ages.

First time Cops for Cancer rider prepares for the ride of his life! By Shivani Malli What is it that compels someone to fundraise for months and arduously train for a 900 kilometre bike ride across the challenging terrain of BC? Is it the adventure of the ride itself, or connecting with riders dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research and support programs? All that and more attracted Constable Adam Spindor of the New Westminster Police Department to become a first-time rider for the Cops for Cancer Tour de Coast team.

The tour Spindor is about to embark upon will help raise funds for pediatric cancer research and support programs like the internationally acclaimed Camp Goodtimes, so that children affected by cancer can feel like ordinary kids and have the time of their lives.“So many people are affected by cancer, even children. These kids need people to stand up and fight for them! I want to make a difference, one dollar or one kilometer at a time,”says Spindor. Spindor’s first ride is dedicated to courageous children who are affected by cancer, as well as his aunt and fiancee’s best friend who

are both cancer survivors. “These amazing individuals are my constant source of inspiration as I ride,” says Spindor. The Tour de Coast starts next week in Coquitlam on September 21, 2011. The Cops for Cancer team needs support from local communities to help the Canadian Cancer Society, BC andYukon Division raise money for pediatric cancer research and support programs like Camp Goodtimes.

Wisconsin, was a Rhodes scholar and spent winters skiing in Aspen. “I thought black people couldn’t ski,” replies Gerry, “or is that swimming?” Wendell’s outrage softens as Gerry’s other qualities come to the fore: he’s a crack investigator, despite the sloppy work ethic; and he has a surprising history, if it’s true. The men team up to solve one murder, which soon becomes two, and to intercept the drug vessel. They’re up against three high-minded criminals (Mark Strong, Liam Cunningham, David Wilmot) who quote Nietzsche and argue the merits of Dylan Thomas, bemoaning the fact that being sociopaths (or is it psychopaths?) doesn’t allow them to mix with a better class of people. When Wendell enlists the help of the big-city cops, Gerry quietly gathers information and does his own thing: he gives a cache of guns back to the local IRA guy (whose disguise includes wearing a straw cowboy hat and driving a bright orange VW Beetle) and receives tips from two friendly prostitutes, presumably after he pays them. To solve the case and do the right thing puts a great big target on Gerry’s back. He’s in a sea of crooked cops, and survival means knowing how to swim, figuratively and literally. “I came fourth in the Seoul Olympics,” he tells Wendell, who isn’t sure it’s fact or more of Gerry’s dubious Irish craic. We get glimpses of Gerry’s softer side as he deals with his terminally ill mother (Fionnula Flanagan), scenes that could have reeked of melodrama in less capable hands. But writer-director John Michael McDonagh doesn’t dish out sentimentality; he also doesn’t condescend to North American audiences, so you’d do well to brush up on your brogue before seeing the film. Every character is a scene-stealer; each actor shares in the great — if playfully profane — script. This is no frivolous white guy-black guy pairing (see Cop Out, Showtime, even Rush Hour). The rapport between Gleeson and Cheadle feels genuine, and the fish-out-of-water device is comically laid bare by one character towards the film’s end. He does the big flicks (Harry Potter, Gangs of New York), but Gleeson picks some gems to fill in the gaps between blockbusters. Films like In Bruges (written and directed by Martin McDonagh, John’s brother) and The General remind us of Gleeson’s rumpled natural talent, and pairing him with Cheadle as the incredulous straight-man results in dark comedy at its finest.

Marling steeped in folk tradition ■ Laura Marling — A Creature I Don’t Know (Ribbon Records) Rating: 8 (out of 10) Laura Marling continues her one-woman folk revival on her latest album. Although initially the 21year-old singer/songwriter was slotted in with a U.K. “New Folk” scene (Noah and the Whale, Mumford & Sons) she’s been performing out on her own musical highwire for CD REVIEWS some time now. Her guitar-based tunes filled with intricate picking and strange tunings wouldn’t sound out of place in a Greenwich Village coffeehouse circa 1962. In A Creature I Don’t Know Marling stays firmly rooted in the folk tradition. Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell have influenced her style but she is also steeped in English folk music that goes back centuries. You can hear the history in her poetic song stories. — John Goodman

New CD releases Sept. 13 Neon Indian — Era Extrana; Laura Marling — A Creature I Don’t Know; St. Vincent — Strange Mercy; Ladytron — Gravity the Seducer; Girls — Father, Son, Holy Ghost.

Film screening twice locally From page 33 mind. “I remember Bethany’s accident like it was 9/11,” she says. “You just never ever forget a moment like that. We live on a small island so news travels fast. Oddly enough it was Halloween and I got a text message asking everyone to pray for Bethany because she was in the hospital after getting attacked by a shark.” Getting back in the water after Hamilton’s attack was a bit hard but it did not stop Balmores from catching some waves. “There’s a fear there for sure but fear does not make me stop surfing, ” she says. “Bethany tells people not to let their fear stop them from what they love to do. If she could get back on the board then anyone can.” Balmores says. It took the Hamilton family five years to get the film together and Balmores knew that it was going to be an amazing project from the get-go, especially since the story is one that inspires people. “For a kid to have to grow up that fast and do what she’s done — it’s just amazing. It’s so humbling,” says Balmores. Soul Surfer is Balmores’ first feature film and she got to work with experienced stars like Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid and Carrie Underwood. The Hamilton family has been extremely hands-on throughout the entire process. “It was cool to see the Hamiltons every day and see them fight for the reality of each scene. It’s a very fulfilling feeling … it’s more than just a movie — it lifts people’s spirits and gives them hope. After it was finished I was so blown away to be part of such an amazing story it’s been so wonderful and powerful.” Balmores is partnering with World Vision Canada for a cross-Canada tour the first week of October. She will speak about her experiences and help promote the movie. The film will screen twice in the Lower Mainland as part of the tour: Friday, Oct. 7, 12:30 p.m. at Empire Oakridge Surrey, and Saturday, Oct. 8, 12:30 p.m. at Empire Studio 12 Guildford.

Music Therapy Ride on the road again

COLIN James and Chin Injeti are celebrity guests participating in the 10th annual Music Therapy Ride tomorrow. Established by members of the Vancouver music industry with representatives from booking agencies, radio stations, record labels, talent managers, concert promoters and recording artists, the charity ride from Vancouver to Whistler is designed to raise funds for the community-based music therapy services in B.C. All motorcycles and cars will roll out from the River Rock Casino Resort at 9:30 a.m. and will be escorted by the Vancouver Police Department’s Motorcycle Drill Team to the Garibaldi Lift Company in Whistler, where a barbecue lunch and live auction will take place. For more information on this year’s ride or to make a donation visit

Golf series shot pilot in Okanagan

show. Both Teljeur and Greer found themselves divorced, and at “the same crossroads at the same time.” Teljeur took off on a road trip to Austin for 28 days, and was anxious to find a reason to do it again. So “after a couple of drinks in my basement, we came up with this idea for the show,” says Greer. After pitching the idea, Haliburton County offered $250,000 in funding for the show’s pilot. The guys say they basically had a week to get together a budget plan, and within a month of that basement meeting they were on the road. “It’s not like a network came to us, we mortgaged our entire future to do it,” says Greer, a single dad with a nineyear-old daughter. “We created a series based on an idea, not a paycheque.” They credit their hometown of Haliburton, Ontario, for making it happen. “Haliburton is a small town that has struggled financially — but we just went to them with an idea, and they believed in us,” says Greer. Locals held an event for the project, and raised enough money to gas up the very thirsty RV. When I get ready to ask a key question, Greer jumps in: “Are we getting married? We get that a lot,” he laughs. One episode zooms in as the cameraman tears into a glazed donut burger: did they gain weight on the road? “We ate out

almost all the time,” acknowledges Teljeur, “mostly at greasy spoons and truck stops.” The most obvious question gets the quickest response: “No, our golf game did not improve!” The show’s pilot features a course in B.C.’s Okanagan, and the guys plan to head west again for season two. What you see is what you get, with Greer and Teljeur. “None of this is scripted, unlike reality TV. We don’t doctor shots or set up scenes,” says Charlie. That means things sometimes get a little sophomoric on the bus (Greer sticking Corn Nuts in a sleeping Teljeur’s mouth) and on the fairway, where a lot of words have to be bleeped out. “There’s no faking who we are and how we play golf,” says Greer. “We just can’t walk around the course saying ‘Oh my gosh’!” A prolonged golf getaway seems like every man’s dream, but two months on the road can test even the best friendships. Still, the guys are eager to do it again. “The goal is to do this every year until we get sick of doing it,” says Greer. Teljeur agrees: “The show’s about friendship, golf and the adventure of life — there’s way too much that happens on the road, and life’s in front of you, so go for it.” “Just don’t expect any tips!” Highways To Fairways debuts locally on CHEK-TV at 7 p.m. Saturdays, and plays on TVtropolis and Fox Sports World Canada networks.

BREMNER - Pauline Marie Peacefully on September 12, 2011 at Inglewood Care Centre, Pauline Bremner (ne´e Delorme) slipped away from this world. She will be sadly missed by her son Larry, daughter Darlene, grandson Jordan, sisters Helen and Gaby, brother George, daughter-in-law Linda and son-inlaw Martin. Pauline was predeceased by her beloved husband Ken in 2000 and, in 2010, by her good friend Frank. Pauline was born in Montreal in 1920, moving to Saskatchewan as a young girl. She met Kenneth Bremner in Prince Albert after he returned from overseas service in World War II. They married in 1946 and were together for over 50 years, moving to the North Shore in 1970. After Ken’s death Pauline moved into Summerhill Retirement Residence where she made many new friends. Pauline was charming, outgoing and enjoyed interacting with people. She was a devout Catholic and a loving mother and grandmother, modeling toughness, courage, common sense, insightfulness, and a passion for life. We shall miss her. The family would like to express their thanks to the committed and compassionate staff at Inglewood Care Centre where she spent the last few months of her life. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held for family and close friends at a later time. Anyone wishing to honour Pauline’s life may do so by contributing to Heart and Stroke Foundation.

In Memoriam

She will forever hold a special place in the hearts of those RNB students, parents & staff aswell as many others.

Gomez (nee Reynolds), Sadie May 19, 1980 ~ August 29, 2011

Sadie passed away in Calgary, Alberta at Foothills Medical Centre on Monday, August 29 surrounded by her loving family. She is survived by her devoted husband Shane Gomez (Calgary), her parents Kim and John Reynolds and her brother Joshua Reynolds (North Vancouver), his wife Colleen Wheeler and their daughter, Sadie’s niece and namesake, Lillian Sadie Reynolds, who shares Sadie’s feisty spirit and fabulous lips. Her in-law family includes her parents-in-law Suzanne and Jose Gomez (Crowsnest Pass), her brother-in-law Jay Gomez, his wife Jill and their children, Ozzy and Willow (Brisbane, Australia) and grandma, Felicita Gomez (Crowsnest Pass, Alberta). In addition to her friends and extended family, Sadie will be sorely missed by the Cameron brothers, Casey, Mike and Dave, the McGill family, her dear friend Sarah Brown, as well as the Vancouver “Crew” and, in the most recent months, her friends Stephanie Strelau and Kyle Erskine who were so helpful to Sadie and Shane as her time grew near after being so sick for so long. An animal lover, Sadie took great comfort from her pet family, ‘Bug puppy’ Tiki and her kitty-cats Louie and Lattimmer. Sadie was born in North Vancouver, graduated from Sutherland Secondary School in 1998 and completed her degree in Family Studies at the University of British Columbia in 2003. She met Shane, a football playing, ‘80s glam-rock loving ‘dude’ and SFU student at Kit’s Pub while partying with her Delta Gamma sister on a Saturday night and the rest was history. Her father, a Frank Zappa aficionado, never quite recovered from the whole glamrock thing. Sadie and Shane married and moved to Calgary where Sadie pursued her work as an exercise therapist and brain injury counsellor with gusto. Music was a huge part of Sadie’s life and grew from its origins in high school jazz choir to include performances with the UBC Choral Union of Handel’s Messiah, Ben Heppner and perhaps the highlight for her, singing for Queen Elizabeth II and sharing eye contact with Her Majesty herself. She released her full length CD of original songs ‘Wise Eyes’ under the name Sadie Rey in May 2011. She loved Christmas, olives, Disneyland, road trips, fishing, her dad’s sandwiches, double consonants (thus, the spelling of Lattimmer’s name!), all things pink, cheese, Mark Messier, fashion, the New York Giants and hats - the girl could wear a hat like nobody’s business. Most of all, though, Sadie loved Shane. The first line of Sadie’s Manifesto of Life introduces life as “an awakening moment of utter silence shattering all conceivable thoughts” and such is the remarkable impact this one person had on all of us privileged to share such a short time with her. Her staggering wisdom, strength, compassion and endless enthusiasm will continue to infuse all of us to do better and we promise her that we will. In that spirit, Sadie asks each of you, in lieu of flowers, to consider sponsoring a child in Africa in order to ensure that her life continues to have meaning on a daily basis. Vaya con Dios, mi hija. Vaya con Dios. A celebration of Sadie’s life will take place at St. Agnes Church, 530 East 12th Street in North Vancouver, BC on Saturday September 17th at 2:00 pm. • • •

Among Betty's volunteer and community activities were the group known as Special Services for Seniors where she was a volunteer driver for 20 years, and then an Honorary President in latter years. She was also active on the committee that worked toward the reality that is now the West Vancouver Seniors'Centre - then participated in many roles at the Centre and only discontinued being a greeter in 2009.

Frankfurt show full of the wild and woolly photo submitted

PORSCHE makes 23 variants of its iconic 911, but the one that offers the best blend of performance, price and prestige is likely the 911 Carrera GTS, writes our auto columnist David Chao.

haven’t already guessed we’re saving the best for last. It’s the 911 Carrera GTS, and for a perfect balance of performance, price, and prestige, it’s the one you want. Porsche has equipped the GTS with a high-output, naturally aspirated version of its 3.8-litre flat-six engine, tuned for 408 horsepower and 310 foot-pounds of torque. In doing so, the German automaker has brought the Carrera line closer to the power levels of the Turbo and

Frankfurt: Maserati SUV revealed With kids back at school and cloud cover in full effect, the dog days of summer are officially on the wane. Luckily for gearheads, that means it’s time to hit the onramp for the car show season and there’s few bigger than the Frankfurt Auto Show for big reveals and wild n’ woolly concepts. Leaving aside the unlikely flights of fancy, one of the more important cars to take a bow at Frankfurt is a new Maserati SUV. Now, fans of the trident badge will be wondering what a sportscar manufacturer is doing trying to build a big, heavy SUV . . . just as fans of the Porsche sportscar brand wondered the same thing when they revealed the Cayenne.

2011 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

The Porsche you want

A quick glance at Porsche’s Canadian website reveals no less than 23 variants of the beloved 911.

It’s a daunting list, but on closer inspection you can see the logic in it. Start with the $90,100 Carrera coupe and the sportier S model, along with their convertible options, and then add four-wheel drive to the mix. That’s eight versions right there. The 911 Black Edition decks the standard Carrera in sinister, all-black trimmings, while Targas split the difference

versions to go. At the high end of the performance spectrum, the 911 Turbo is the car that many Porsche enthusiasts grew up dreaming about, while the GT3 RS 4.0 and GT2 RS are designed exclusively for the race track. And as for the exclusive 911 Speedster, well, don’t get too excited about it. It’s a fantastic car with a stunning paint job, but only six were brought to Canada — and they were sold before they crossed our borders. That leaves us with one type of 911, and if you

Porsche feels hand-built From page 47

GT3 without compromising the all-round driveability that makes the base model so much fun to own. Even better is the fact that the GTS is available with your choice of rear- or all-wheel drive, which is not the case with the 911 Turbo. While many would argue that all-wheel drive is superior —especially with today’s technology, some people just prefer to have their sports cars with rear-wheel drive. As such, the option is nice to have. In 2012, Porsche will bring out the new 991 body style (replacing the current 996), and some consumers

THE 911 has never undergone a complete restyling, sticking close to the same iconic shape it began with in 1963.

might want to wait to see it up close before committing to a 2011 GTS. However, if the next generation is rolled out in similar fashion to the current one, there might be a long wait. Rather than replacing all 23 911 models in one fell swoop, Porsche is likely to update a few at a time, effectively selling both body styles at once. As such, enthusiasts can either jump on a Carrera GTS right now, or wait to see what the revised 911 design looks like up close. Regardless of whether you dive in sooner or later, it’s money well spent. Design The 911 has never undergone a complete restyling — the unmistakable design has simply evolved, such that you can still see the resemblance between the newest and oldest 911s. Meanwhile, the Ferraris, Corvettes, and Mustangs of the world have undergone major redesigns over their life spans. The GTS employs the wider body employed by the Carrera 4, which provides a noticeably wider rear track, along with a unique front spoiler and side skirts that set it apart from other 911s. The combination is very pleasing to the eye, imparting a more athletic feel to the standard Carrera design. The most noticeable interior upgrade is the use of black Alcantara, a composite surface material made of polyester and polyurethane that provides both grip and durability. It’s nothing new — Alcantara was invented in the 1970s — but adds a nice touch to the GTS’s steering wheel, shifter, and handbrake.

While design and build quality have improved over the years, the 911 retains the raw, customized feel of a hand-built car. That goes for all of the 23 variations in Porsche’s stable. Performance The GTS’s high-output 3.8-litre flat-six reaches 408 h.p. thanks to a revised intake and exhaust, and reaches its maximum 310 foot-pounds of torque at a lower 4,200 r.p.m. for improved response. The six-speed manual gearbox is solid and precise — rewarding purposeful shifts with instant power— and an amazing, seven-speed, dualclutch transmission replaces the outgoing TipTronic automatic that paved the way for paddle shifters. Like the more-powerful 911 Turbo, the GTS’s handling is exceptional; steering is neutral and tracks straight, and the feedback from the road is excellent. You can tell exactly when the rear wheels are about to lose their grip on the road, making it easy to push the car right to the edge. As fun as it is to push the GTS hard, the best part is how it responds when you slow things down. The Porsche is surprisingly comfortable and relaxed on city streets, enabling it to serve admirably as both your daily driver and your weekend getaway car. Environment The Carrera GTS’s base seats are fantastic, thanks to supportive side bolsters that work to keep occupants firmly in place, and optional Alcantara seat inserts for even

better grip. Those looking for even more support can opt for adaptive sport seats or sport bucket seats. Ergonomics in the 911 are reasonably good, but the controls are still a bit too low on the dashboard, hiding at the bottom of the cliff-like centre console. It takes some time to figure out where they are by touch, which will leave most drivers looking away from the road, and there are no buttons mounted on the steering wheel other than the optional paddle shifters. Interior storage includes a decent glovebox, door pockets, a bin in the centre console, and a shelf behind the rear seats. Contrary to what you’d expect, the cargo space under the front hood is tall and not very deep — and just as you’d expect, it’s not very big. Convertible 911s benefit from an automatic cloth roof that opens and closes quickly and with minimal hassle. The roof design is such that there’s no need for a cover when it’s folded away — the 911 looks just as good with the top up as it does when it’s down.

Nissan GT-R For $109,900, the revised, 2012 GT-R features a 3.8litre V-6 generating 530 h.p. and 448 foot-pounds of torque, a six-speed dualclutch transmission, and all-wheel drive. We waited seemingly forever for Nissan’s muchanticipated supercar, which seems purpose-built to take on the 911. However, while the GT-R is a relative bargain in comparison to the GTS, it doesn’t have the Porsche’s spirit and history.

Kia takes a leap forward From page 47 The history on the Cayenne is already written. It upset the purists, but the SUV’s strong sales created huge reserves of cash that Porsche funnelled into R&D to make the 911, Boxster and Cayman even better. Plus, if you’ve ever driven a Cayenne in one of its higher THE Maserati Kubang makes its debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Maserati is following Porsche’s lead for sports car companies sliding into the SUV market.

What do you drive?


trim levels, you’ll know that it’s not just surprisingly capable in bad weather but screamingly fast. The new ones are even quite attractive. In a way. So perhaps this is the SUV that lets Maserati expand from an exotic coupe and a curvaceous four-door to a full lineup that goes toeto-toe with the German marques. It’s called the Kubang, and (sotto voce) it’s underpinned with Jeep bits! Mind you, it’s a pretty-looking rig, and while they un-ironically appeared to have named it after an underhood explosion — kabang! — it’s bound to be a sales success. Also, for some reason, it’s stuck in my head as the name has the same cadence as the song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: Oh, you, Maserati Kubang, Maserati Kubang we love you. . . . Frankfurt: Mazda CX-5 shows its sheetmetal Speaking of SUVs that could save a brand, Mazda took the camouflage off its cute-ute CX-5 and showed it in the flesh — so to speak — for the first time in Frankfurt. We’ve seen sketches of the little crossover, and it marks two big milestones for Mazda: it’s the first allSkyactiv vehicle, and the first boasting Mazda’s new Kodo design language. Frankly, it looks great, and having had the opportunity to drive the Mazda Skyactiv mules some weeks ago, I’m happy to report that it’s going to drive with that certain Mazda flair Canadians have come to love. What’s more, the CX-5 should be impressively competitive in terms of fuel-economy due to the developmental break-through of Mazda’s lean-burning high-compression gasoline engines. You can also look for decent increases in power output. The real news here for skinflints is that Mazda has committed to bringing a diesel version of the CX-5 to our shores, and let me tell you, that little stump-pulling engine is unlike any diesel you’ve driven before. It wouldn’t be out of place in a

Miata, it’s so much fun. Frankfurt: GT Concept redefines Kia Enough with the curtains dropping on cars you can actually buy, how about some high-tech unobtanium . . . from Kia? That’s right, the Koreans strike again with a beautiful concept, a rear-wheel drive coupe-styled sedan with a turbo-charged V-6 producing slightly less than 400 h.p. Wait, I’m sorry: did you say “Kia”? Yes. Yes I did. It’s borderline unfathomable as to how quickly both Hyundai and Kia have leapt forward in terms of design and performance since their blue-collar disposa-mobiles of even five or six years ago. Since then we’ve had the Optima with either stonking turbo mills or gas-sipping hybrids, the funky Soul, the sprightly Koup, and the good-looking Sportage, which is an out-and-out rocket with the turbo-four under the bonnet. With the GT Concept, Kia moves the goalposts even farther on with a stunning design that might as well be the next Aston-Martin. Some of the conceptual bits we won’t see (fendermounted rear-view cameras, glass-covered instrument panel), but the overall design language is a blueprint for Kia’s future. Will Kia build a highpowered rear-drive sports sedan? Opinion seems to lean towards “No,” but then again, hop in your time machine and show someone from 2001 an Optima just to watch their head explode when you tell them it’s a Kia. Frankfurt: Volkswagen Up! hammers the exclamation point home Back before it became a byword for hot-hatchbacks like the GTi, efficient diesels in the TDI range, and swoopy stuff like the Passat CC, VW was literally “Volkswagen,” the People’s Car. Well, VW, the People haven’t got any Cash any more. Not to worry, because here comes Vee-Dub’s new city car, the Up!. No, that’s not double-punctuation, the Up! is so excited to be here that it actually incorporates an exclamation point into its name. I know, I know, but just wait until we get to the See Lamborghini page 53

Lamborghini teases Vancouver with awesome Aventador From page 52

model lineup. . . . The Up! is actually quite a smart looking little ride, and with seating for four and a efficient 59 h.p. and 74 h.p. three-cylinders, it’s a practical city runabout. Now, you won’t be able to get the Up! here for some time, but with Scion bringing over the iQ, and the Smart Car still kicking around, there’s a market segment for it. When we do get the Up!, be ready for some headacheinducing sales brochures. So far, VW has launched the Up!, High Up!, Up! Black, Up! White, and the Buggy Up! concept. It’s like a Rex Morgan comic strip. Vancouver: Lamborghini Aventador launches You needn’t travel halfway around the world to see the covers pulled off a stunning example of exotic design. In fact, right here in Vancouver, Lamborghini revealed a gleaming example of their latest V-12 supercar, the Aventador. It’s a fantastic machine:

Zeus come to earth as a white Cretan bull again. The Aventador looks like it’s travelling at the speed of sound just sitting there, and with a characteristic V-12 bellow, it’s pure Lamborghini. Unfortunately, it also costs $409,000, AND they don’t have enough to sell, so the chances of Yours Truly getting behind the wheel to give you a driving impression are smaller than the chances of the proverbial snowball in heck. Lamborghini, if you’re listening: the good people of the North Shore need to know what the Aventador is like to drive. You will find them gracious and discerning clientele, but they also are cautious and sensible buyers, and require a thorough review. I’m available to provide an in-depth assessment at any time.

Driving fast like a Boss

■ Mustang Boss 302, by Donald Farr, Motorbooks, 160 pages, $33.00.

WITH a guttural roar the Boss 302 Mustang rolled off the assembly line in April of 1969.

Its powerful engine sent out a challenge that Ford was ready to take on the big boys on the track. Following the engine evolution the Mustang produced 290 horsepower, identical to the Camaro Z28, but its overall performance saw the Boss step out in front of the competition. Author Donald Farr follows the development of this legendary vehicle and provides plenty of details on the road to the winner’s circle. With an eye to bringing back a former leader, Ford opted to rekindle the Boss franchise and showcased the new version in the summer of 2010. Staying true to the styling of the original, the new Boss 302 leaves the earlier version behind with its 444 horsepower engine. Chief designer Darrell Behmer said, “we’ve taken design cues from the 1969 Boss street cars and updated them to give the 2012 Boss 302 the proper bad-boy attitude.” Farr has captured the history and the transformation of this performance car and served it up with a great collection of photographs that cover every aspect of its past and present. — Terry Peters
