Sled dog killer pleads guilty in NV

Fawcett greeted by protest at court Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

THE man accused of slaughtering more than 50 sled dogs in Whistler in 2010, has pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal. Robert Fawcett, 40, entered a plea in North Vancouver provincial court Thursday afternoon, while a dozen protestors stood on the steps waving placards and calling for jail time. Little was said during the brief hearing before Judge Steven Merrick accepted the plea and ordered a psychological report on Fawcett, which will be used in deciding his sentence. Fawcett is due back in court for a sentencing hearing Nov. 22. The maximum penalty for the crime is five years in prison and a $75,000 fine, but it is too soon to speculate what sentence the Crown will seek for Fawcett, said Crown spokesman Neil MacKenzie.

Facebook rant called for ‘a little murder’

Police detail disturbing diatribes that led up to suspect’s arrest Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A North Vancouver man accused of threatening to copy the Colorado shootings wrote several angry rants on Facebook in the week leading up to his arrest, according to investigators, including one in which he said the problems of society could be addressed “with a little murder.”

NEWS photo Cindy Goodman

REAL estate agent Shelley Williams listed a British Properties home at $1.888 million and sold it for $2.8 million just five days later. The new owners plan to tear down the 1,400-square-foot rancher and build a much larger house.

50’s-era rancher sparks bidding war From page 1 and her nephew and came up with an asking price of $1,888,000. “Literally as soon as it hit the MLS, the phone started to ring,” said Williams. “I listed it on the Tuesday, and on the Saturday it sold for $2,810,000, with seven offers.” In July, the price of a typical single family home in West Vancouver was $1.9 million, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. House prices in West Vancouver have dropped 1.6 per cent over the past three months. Real estate sales have been sluggish across the Lower Mainland this summer, and tony West Vancouver has not been immune to the slow down. According to the real estate board, 131 homes were listed and 46 were sold in West Vancouver last month, down from 161 homes listed and 86 sold during the same period last year.

Williams speculated that the size of the lot — 0.63 of an acre — contributed to the property’s popularity. To get a coveted British Properties view, the new homeowners will have to build up, as mature trees block sightlines from the onestorey house. The owners will be able to build a house up to 12,000 square feet on three levels (a basement and two storeys). Williams noted she doesn’t just specialize in a geographic area, as some agents do, but in a demographic: She works mostly with seniors. “Seniors are a very special demographic,” said Williams. “They’re our parents and grandparents, and they need to be treated a little differently.” Many seniors on the North Shore are “equity rich but not necessarily cash rich,” said Williams, and in areas like West Vancouver, they can end up sitting on houses worth a small fortune.

NV woman gets bachelor nod

Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A 28-year-old North Vancouver woman who lists her occupation as a Playboy model will be one of 25 women vying for the love of a 28-year-old former Edmonton Eskimos player when the Canadian version of The Bachelor airs in October. Melissa Marie Peters, a single mother, lingerie model and actor from North Vancouver is one of five bachelorettes announced by CityTV this week who will be competing for the affections of Brad Smith. In a profile posted to the Bachelor site, Peters, described as a “voluptuous Playboy model” said it was her mom and daughter’s idea for her to try out for the show. Peters will be competing for the CFL-er’s heart on the reality show along with a 25-year-old religious pastor from Sylvan Lake, Alberta, and a 27-year-old Toronto real estate agent nicknamed “Bubba” who says friends describe her as “bodacious, crazy, quirky,” and adds she’s looking for a man who is “well endowed and has a great sense of humour.” The nine-episode series features the competing contestants living under lockdown in a luxurious Victoria mansion for the duration of the shoot, in which

MELISSA Marie Peters (centre), a North Vancouver Playboy model, will vie for the heart of CFL wide receiver Brad Smith on The Bachelor Canada. they go on “romantic and adventurous journeys” while Smith gets to know the women. Under the Bachelor formula, at least one woman will be eliminated from the show on each episode. The finale — in which Smith will choose one woman to continue a relationship with and will possibly propose — is kept a closely

guarded secret. Smith, who played for the Montreal Alouettes and Toronto Argonauts as well as the Eskimos between 2007 and 2011 is described by the producers as being “incredibly charismatic” as well as “down to earth.” He is said to be attracted to “independent intelligent women” who are “comfortable in their own skin.”

“We need more radical terrorists in the world. There’s an infestation of ignorance in North America which can only be treated with a little murder,” wrote a Facebook user believed by police to be Ryan Lewis, 32, in the early-morning hours of July 23. A day later, Lewis wrote another post on his Facebook page, saying: “That Colorado shit is gonna happen here soon.” Police believe Lewis was referring to the July 20 Colorado shooting that left a dozen people dead after a man opened fire in a movie theatre during a screening of the Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. Lewis was arrested by North Vancouver RCMP Aug. 1 as he left his apartment building in the 500-block of Lonsdale Avenue. Police seized his home computer for forensic analysis. Lewis has been charged with threatening to cause death or bodily harm to the general public. He was released on bail Aug. 2 and has not yet entered a plea to the charge. Police said they took the threats seriously. In one media interview following his arrest, Lewis described his posts as “stupid,” and said he never intended to follow through on them. But in an application for a search warrant for his apartment obtained by the North Shore News, RCMP detailed the Facebook posts that had prompted their concern. According to those documents, Lewis first came to police attention July 25, when the North Vancouver RCMP received an anonymous CrimeStoppers tip saying Lewis’s Facebook page should be checked. The anonymous source told police “Lewis is quite disturbed and has threatened many times to kill and hatch plans to harm many in Vancouver,” according to the search warrant application. Police did some preliminary checking, but didn’t find any Facebook pages belonging to Ryan Lewis open to the public. The alarm was raised again a week later, however, when the Vancouver Police Department forwarded a message to the North Vancouver detachment that had been sent to them by one of Lewis’s Facebook friends in the United Kingdom. That message contained detailed, profanity-ridden and disturbing messages that the friend said Lewis had posted. According to the documents filed by police, Lewis’s angry rants started on June 10 when he wrote: “Going for a walk. Hate this city and its people so much. I will be looking for someone to put down.” A couple of weeks later, Lewis posted a more graphic message, describing people in Vancouver as “coward hicks” and adding, “I will murder any of you trashy f**ks that want to cross me.” A month later, on July 25 — just days after the Colorado shooting — Lewis wrote a rant about how Vancouver is filled with “blind idiots” and “bleeding heart morons” who ignore the problems of the city. “You’ll be surprised when I go through with my plan, Vancouver,” he wrote. “No one is innocent.” A few hours later, around 4 a.m., Lewis wrote about wanting to “f**king clean this place up myself. Who knows, maybe I started already.” Police tracked Lewis to a Telus account at his mother’s apartment in North Vancouver. They also managed to find one of Lewis’s Facebook friends who allowed them to view the posts, visible only to Lewis’s approximately 230 social media friends online. Following Lewis’s arrest, North Vancouver RCMP spokesman Cpl. Richard De Jong said threats are treated the same whether they are made in person, phoned, texted or posted through social media. Lewis remains free on bail under conditions that he not have access to the Internet, that he live with his mother and that he abide by a curfew. He must also attend forensic psychiatric outpatient services and take anger management counseling. According to information obtained by the North Shore News, Lewis is not known to suffer from mental illness, but has been described as an “angry” person.

Road work halted by hawks Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

THE District of North Vancouver has had to hold off on some roadwork and waterline replacement in the Capilano Highlands

because a pair of hawks has built a nest too close to the construction site.

The district was supposed to begin work on Sunset Boulevard along Upper MacKay Creek Park in July, but surveyors noticed two Cooper’s hawks in a nest nearby.

After calling in a consultant, staff determined the nest was occupied by a male and a female hawk and possibly a brood of chicks, and as such was subject to provincial protection under the Wildlife Act, which forbids the disturbance of birds’ nests until the fledgling period — in which the chick still lives in the nest — concludes at end of Au-

gust. The start date for the work is now postponed until Sept. 4. “We acknowledge the responsibility we have of managing our ecosystem and respecting these habitats,” said district Mayor Richard Walton. “Occasionally, that may mean having to delay construction projects, as is the case with the work on Sunset Boulevard.”

Protesters at court demand maximum penalty From page 1 employer. He claimed he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result. Outside the court, protestor Ingrid Katzberg said Fawcett had no choice but to plead guilty. “He (had) to, definitely. He did it. He admitted it. He got money for the killing, so yes, he had to plead

guilty,” she said. Katzberg said even the maximum penalty wouldn’t be enough to satisfy the protesters. “But it’s the best we can do, and at least it gives the message to other people that the courts are going to punish you if you do something like that,” she said. Only a few cases of animal cruelty in B.C. history have resulted in jail time, according to MacKenzie.

Cruel truth O

n Thursday we saw what had been expected for some time: Robert Fawcett, the man accused of cruelly killing more than 50 sled dogs in Whistler in 2010, pleaded guilty in North Vancouver provincial court. Unlike the dozens of other cases heard in the same courtroom this week, and thousands of others so far this year, this one drew protesters, placards and media from across the Lower Mainland. Fawcett’s crime was as shocking as it was inhumane, but it says something about our collective attitude that this case has mobilized people unlike almost any other. B.C.’s courts hear countless cases that involve human suffering, and the media report on events every day that underscore the misery experienced by many in this province, and yet it is the

stories involving animals that spark the most sustained outrage. One could argue that animals require special attention because they are voiceless, but the marginalized groups who find themselves the target of some of the worst crimes often go equally unheard. As regular courtroom reporters can tell you, mental illness, addiction, poverty, abuse and other forms of lifelong disenfranchisement are frequent themes, as often among the offenders as among their victims. The province, feeding off public anger, has tightened rules for the sled dog industry and toughened the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Maybe if we saw this type of anger in cases where lack of access to proper mental healthcare or funding for children in foster care were factors, our courtrooms would be quieter places year-round.

Kitimat refinery a billionaire’s pipe dream

PUNDITS and politicians may gas away all they want about oil pipelines and refineries, but let us turn to a local, hard-nosed expert for an informed opinion. West Vancouver Mayor Mike Smith retired last year from more than a quarter of a century as owner-manager of M.R. Smith Ltd., wholesale distributor for Imperial Oil and ExxonMobil in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. So what’s Smith’s take on the latest angle (or sideshow) of the giant Northern Gateway pipeline project — David Black’s out-of-the-blue suggestion of a refinery in Kitimat? Blue, as in blue-skying. It’s a let’s-look-at-this idea, an industry outsider’s invitation to the old bulls of oildom to think afresh — rare and usually stonily resented in any industry. To be sure, Black quietly studied the issue and made high-profile financial contacts. Interviewed, he’s been

This Just In

Trevor Lautens commendably open and has dodged no hard questions about his proposal. If he doesn’t know, he responds with a monosyllabic “no” — not the usual weaseling. He’s put up his own money for an environmental assessment, sure to be duplicated and triplicated by industry, the federal government, provincial governments, environmental groups and native interests if his proposal turns out to have legs. Building the refinery would cost an estimated $13 billion, far beyond

Black’s reach. Then there’s the NIMBY factor: Everybody needs oil; nobody wants its infrastructure in their backyard. This explains the score in the last 30 years in B.C. Refinery closures: five; still operating refineries: two. (And let it be clear that if a refinery were suggested for, say, Kew Beach in West Vancouver, it would not find a champion in the undersigned.) Which leads back to West Van Mayor Smith’s views as a long-time player in the oil an gasoline business. “In my opinion, there is virtually zero chance of a refinery being built in Kitimat,” Smith said, in response to my request. “No one in their right mind would finance one. “Refined product is not needed in Northwest B.C., so there is no demand. The capital cost of a refinery in that remote part of the province would be very high, and the products produced would need to be shipped enormous distances to find a market. You notice that there are no proposals to build a refinery in

Alaska to process their crude oil and ship finished product south. “It is not a coincidence that three of the four Vancouver refineries have closed,” Smith noted. “The refining and marketing of petroleum is not nearly as profitable as the production of crude oil. “There is also the important matter of getting the crude to Kitimat. The Northern Gateway project is highly controversial, as it passes through very challenging terrain and many pristine wilderness areas. . . . I would personally bet against the project ever being approved. “There are other alternatives to get Alberta crude to market. Eastern Canadian refineries and those in the U.S. would make more sense as a destination.” No mealy-mouthed equivocation there. ••• A footnote: Why couldn’t the Vancouver Sun and the National Post clearly spit out the identifier, the media term, for David Black? He’s

an “industrialist.” He’s “a successful B.C. entrepreneur.” Only Keith Baldrey in this paper put it plainly: He’s a “newspaper mogul,” owning about 150 U.S. and Canadian newspapers, mostly small. ••• Aw, don’t you columnists ever have anything positive to say? Not often, but here’s one: Victoria Times Colonist writer Rob Shaw’s scoop on B.C. New Democratic Party’s then-leader Carole James, a superb story picked up by the Sun, confirms that James is a person of outstanding character (as the present writer contended at the time — while slamming the NDP rebels who undermined her in favour of Adrian Dix). James courageously stood by her troubled son in wrenching crises, once on the eve of her election debate with Gordon Campbell. This story is must-read, major-league journalism, and proof again that the beleaguered dailies remain utterly indispensable to the serious reader. ••• “We’re right out of food,”

smiled Joan Cox, an hour or two into West Vancouver’s 100th anniversary celebration by the West Van Historical Society last Saturday. Last year — leftovers. Dozens gathered this year at the Gertrude Lawson House, where Ann Brousson, who chaired the marketing committee for the society’s centenary book, Cottages to Community: The Story of West Vancouver’s Neighbourhoods, had very youthful memories of the house. Jim Carter, who chaired the committee steering the handsomely produced book, gave up-to-the-minute sales figures: 2,630, only a few hundred copies still available for this sure keepsake. And author (aided by curator John Moir) Francis Mansbridge, a historian whose PhD in fact is in Canadian literature, was present, and smilingly confided there are shady bits of West Van history not in the book — like current grow-ops in certain neighbourhoods. Wait for the 200th anniversary book, maybe. tlautens@telus.net

Speech-stifling gag law turns the stomach THE unfairness and absurdity of one of the B.C. government’s more controversial laws was on full display this past week, as the B.C. Government Employees Union was fined more than $3 million for having had the temerity to advertise during the byelection campaigns last March. Governments love to control communications whenever possible, and this government in particular has a special fondness for that kind of behaviour. The B.C. Liberals have attempted several times to muzzle socalled “third parties” when it comes to communicating anytime near an election campaign. The Elections Act sets tight spending limits for third parties (registered political parties have far greater flexibility and resources when it comes to advertising). The NDP government of

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

the 1990s was the first to muzzle them, but the B.C. Liberals have gone much further, greatly expanding the so-called “gag law” in this province. So what great offence did the BCGEU commit that warranted the kind of fine usually associated with highlevel criminal activity? The union ran a 30second radio and television ad that promoted the value of public servants. With its collective agreement about to expire at the end of March, the union was obviously

making the case that its members deserved a better contract. The ads were not overtly political; they did not mention any political party, and contained only a passing reference to government cutbacks. The byelections in Port Moody-Coquitlam and Chilliwack-Hope were called on a Thursday. The ads were already up and running by then, but the BCGEU, just to play it safe, actually contacted Elections B.C. the following day to make sure their ads weren’t in contravention of the law. Through what appears to be a communications mixup, the union didn’t realize Elections B.C. considered the ads illegal until the following Tuesday (a dubious ruling at best), at which time the ads were pulled. Elections B.C. wasn’t satisfied with that, however, and demanded to know how much the ads cost. The union said the total cost, provincewide, was about $280,000, and it put the cost per day in

each of the ridings at about $285. But Elections B.C. pegged it at $162,000 per riding, when the spending limits for third-parties were set at just over $3,000. So the union was deemed to have overspent by $159,000 in each riding. The penalties for overspending are potentially huge. They are 10 times the amount of money that was overspent, so the total penalty levied against the BCGEU was a whopping $3.2 million ($159,000 times 10 equals $1.59 million per riding). This is absurd and, one can argue, anti-democratic (not to mention offensive, insulting and . . . you get the picture). We’re not talking about one of those notorious political attack ads here. Nor was this the kind of political anti-government ad

political advertising (as a union member myself, I don’t like my union dues being spent in such a fashion), but connecting advertising to contract talks is perfectly legitimate. The B.C. Liberals love to spend your tax dollars telling you what a great job they’re doing, but when it comes to others spending their own money around election time, it’s somehow fine to expose them to crippling financial penalties. Of course, I’m not convinced an NDP government will repeal this gag law (they brought it in the first place, remember). Because too often, politicians think that when it comes to free speech, only they deserve rights they deny to others. Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

that the B.C. Federation of Teachers, for instance, is fond of airing. Instead, this was a situation where a union was making a legitimate argument on behalf of its members, when suddenly the government called two byelections, thus catching the union in an immediate and arguably unforeseen bind. Making this ridiculous situation even more embarrassing for the government is the spectacle of B.C. Liberals MLAs gleefully poking the BCGEU in the eye, insisting it drop its appeal of the penalty because it didn’t “play by the rules.” Well, the rules are offensive and are an assault on free speech. Rather than celebrating such an obnoxious assault on democracy, the B.C. Liberal caucus should be decrying it. I’ve never been a big fan of unions engaging in full-on

New bike restores faith

Dear Editor: After you published our letter about our son Malik’s stolen bike (Beloved Bike Lost to a Thief, Aug. 22, North Shore News), we received your email informing us that a gentleman had offered to give him a new one. This weekend, we called him and went to pick it up. Although Malik’s original bike was not returned, he did get to ride with his little brother and his friends all weekend long. Few newspapers print positive news; that is why I am pleased to write to you with this story of a community coming together to put a big smile on a young boy’s face. I have to say that none of this would have happened without the attention from the North

Shore News and the consideration of this kind citizen. Thank you so much Victor, and thank you North Shore News for the wonderful gift we have received. The world needs things like this to happen every day. Share kindness and love wherever you are and in all that you do. It costs nothing yet can change everything. Whoever has Malik’s bike I hope their child is happy and enjoying it. Mark Smith North Vancouver

PS: When I asked Malik where he was going to park his bike, he told me that he would be leaving it in the back from now on.

INQUIRING REPORTER TWO pit bull attacks on four-year-old children in British Columbia in a two-week period have prompted calls for the breed to be banned in this province. The idea has been tabled in the wake of previous vicious attacks, but legislators have never acted. Owners and other advocates have argued that the breed itself isn’t to blame for the problem. Ontario ignored such objections, however, and implemented a ban seven years ago. Is it time for B.C. to follow suit? Find us on Facebook and Twitter and tell us what you think. — Nanette van Doorn

Kevin Bennett North Vancouver “Not a broad ban, but just like when you go to the SPCA to get a pet, maybe they should look into the backgrounds of pit bull owners.”

Valerie Anderson North Vancouver “Definitely. I love dogs, but consider how many incidents have taken place, especially with children.”

Should pit bulls be banned in B.C.?

Alison Dodd North Vancouver “I would disagree with that. I grew up with dogs, and think with the proper love and training by the owner, they should be fine dogs.”

Nelson Alvarado Vancouver “Totally, because they’re very dangerous; even using a leash they’re still very dangerous.”

Marilyn Turner North Vancouver “No, I don’t think there should be a ban on any dog. It’s not the dog; it’s usually circumstances and the owner.”

BC Ferries to cut 98 sailings from major routes Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

B.C. Ferries is cutting 98 round trips on its major routes this winter as part of a cost-cutting measure — and some of those cancelled trips will be on the route that runs between Horseshoe Bay and Nanaimo. The reductions, approved by the provincial government, will go into effect after the Thanksgiving weekend. They are designed to save the corporation about $4 million over the next four years Most of the cancelled trips are extra sailings on the Tsawwassen to Duke Point run, including an early-morning 5:15 a.m. and an evening 5:45 p.m. sailing on Saturdays.

The ferry corporation had originally announced it intended to cut up to 400 sailings to save money. Since then, the province stepped in with an $80-million cash injection. It’s unclear at this point how many sailings will be cut in total. The provincial government pays the ferry corporation a subsidy of about $136 million a year to maintain certain service levels. On Friday, the ferry corporation announced financial results for its first quarter, which included net earnings of $3.3 million for the three months ending June 30 this year. That compares to last year’s loss of $3.5 million during the same period. Revenues increased by 5.7 per cent over the same quarter last year — partly due to increases in fuel surcharges. Vehicle traffic was down by 1.7 per cent over the first quarter of last year while passenger traffic was down 2.4 per cent.

“Saturday does tend to be a lower utilized day,” on that route, which is generally used by commercial truck traffic, said Deborah Marshall, B.C. Ferries spokeswoman. On that route, the last trip of the day on Saturdays will now be at 3:45 p.m. in winter months. The ferry corporation will also cut 32 round trips from the Swartz Bay-to-Tsawwassen route and 18 round trips from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay — mostly extra trips scheduled around Christmas and Spring Break — this winter. Marshall said many of the trips being cancelled have been sailing three-quarters empty. More difficult decisions are ahead in the next year, when the ferry corporation and the province have agreed to look for a further $26 million in savings on the smaller, money-losing minor routes. An agreement on those cuts is expected by next June.

Fender bender suit tossed Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A North Vancouver chiropractor who sued another driver for more than $30,000 over a parking lot fender bender has had his claim tossed out by a B.C. Supreme Court judge.

Gohar Sheikh sued Jason Struys, a farmer from Agassiz, after the two drivers collided in a downtown parking lot after a Canucks hockey game in November 2009. Sheikh, who had attended the game with his wife and fouryear-old son, was backing up in a large SUV — a 2003 Acura MDX — when he said he felt a “sudden smash.” Sheikh claimed Struys carelessly drove his 1995 Jeep Cherokee into his vehicle and sued for $31,000 in damages. Struys, however, had a different version of events. Both he and a friend, a passenger in the jeep, said he began to pull slowly out of his parking spot but stopped when he saw Sheikh’s SUV backing up. Struys said Sheikh didn’t stop, but continued backing the SUV until it collided with his jeep. Struys described the impact as minor and said there did not appear to be any damage to his jeep. In considering the case, Justice Shelley Fitzpatrick said that she believed Struys over Sheikh, noting Struys was the only person involved in the fender bender who had a clear view of what was happening. The judge noted some minor abrasions to the SUV’s bumper — which ICBC estimated would cost under $700 to repair — appeared to be the only damage. Fitzpatrick said she didn’t accept that Struys had “lurched out” of a parking stall, as described by Sheikh, noting, “the mere fact that an accident occurs does not give rise to a presumption of negligence.”

AT a time when artists were outlaws, her grandparents were both.

Anastasia Hendry is currently exhibiting an eclectic collection of her artwork at the Silk Purse on Argyle Avenue in West Vancouver as part of Art of the Peoples of the Salish Sea. The show runs until Sept. 16. While her work is shaped by her personality and experience, the artist and teacher carries the experiences of generations of her family each time she weaves, paints, or sews. An addition to the Indian Act in the late 19th century prohibited the potlatch, an aboriginal feast and celebration. For Hendry’s family, it was also a time of artistic endeavour. Compliance with the ban may have meant the loss of centuries of accumulated culture. “Everybody has some kind of artistic form,” Hendry says of her nine siblings. “The traditional aboriginal way is we all learn through our family members.” Hendry cannot discuss her own work without talking about her grandparents and the art forms they practiced throughout their lives. “He kept a lot of the songs and dances alive when they were under potlatch ban,” she says of her grandfather. Despite the threat of prison, her grandmother continued to hone her craft as a weaver and button-blanket maker, selling her work to the Hudson’s Bay Company throughout her life, and passing the skill to Hendry’s mother. “My mother was instrumental in teaching me some of the art forms especially the

button blankets,” she says. The notion of passing culture along is an incidental theme in the Silk Purse exhibit, as the collection of artists span the gamut from established craftsmen to fresh faces. “It’s almost coincidental how everything turned out so colourful. With aboriginal art you usually get the red, the black and the white,” says Hendry. “Everything is just blasted with colour.” The exhibit is infused with the work of young artists like Cody Lecoy, whose drawings and paintings are steeped in First Nations tradition while containing a dash of madness akin to the surrealist work of Salvador Dali. “The Silk Purse allows me to gather in artists that I know or that I’ve just met and have them exhibit. A really special part of that is the Richmond youth that are exhibiting some of their pieces,” Hendry says. “There’s a really huge youth component with this.” The exhibit combines representatives from the Cree band, as well as artists from Musqueam, the Interior, and Haida Gwaii. Hendry’s work for the exhibit includes small pine-needle baskets, drums, and a painted apron. While she works on many different forms, her common motif is the whale, which is fitting, given that her Haida name translates as Killer Whale Woman. “I love the water and I love how they swim and how smooth they flow through the waters; the elegant strength of the whale,” she says discussing the name chosen for her by her elders. “For me, what they saw in me was an inner strength and that’s See Sharing page 18

IF you think living in the suburbs is all about wearing “mom” jeans, driving a minivan and becoming obsessed with lawn care, think again, says Sarah Daniels. Daniels co-hosts Urban Suburban, an HGTV show that pits condos against splitlevels. Daniels promotes suburbia while her brother, Philip DuMoulin, defends urban life. The show was recently in North Vancouver shooting an episode for the upcoming season. “We kind of team off,” says Daniels about working with her brother on the show. “Philip will be trying to pull at the heartstrings of the person that’s urban and trying to get that suburban leaner over to his side, and I’m trying to do the opposite.” In reality, Daniels and DuMoulin are real estate agents who both live in the suburban stronghold of south Surrey, although they grew up on the west side of Vancouver. Before becoming a real estate agent, Daniels was a traffic and weather reporter for Global Morning News and CKNW. The brother and sister team were selling real estate together when Daniels pitched the show. “I sort of thought, well if we’re working together I’d better drag him along with me,” says Daniels, “because he’s going to be really choked up if this gets picked up and we’re filming all the time and he’s stuck here working.” The pair have been filming episodes for the show’s second season since March, and have travelled from Vancouver to Halifax, hitting various cities including Calgary, Edmonton, Regina and Toronto along the way. They’ve just wrapped up

In each city, the team compares an urban neighbourhood to a suburban one. For example, in the first season, Daniels and DuMoulin set Vancouver’s Riley Park against Port Moody. In each episode, a couple is shown three urban homes and three suburban ones. Then the persuasion begins. For house junkies, says DuMoulin, it’s TV candy. “They love looking at houses, and in our halfhour show you get to see six houses,” he says. “People love to guess what house the couple’s going to choose.” The show delves into a basic question, says Daniels. “The struggle of where one is going to live: Are you going to stay in the city core, maybe have less square footage but get down to one car, or are you going to move out to the suburbs and have more space?” The sticking point for See Homeowner page 18

Sharing artwork is a Homeowner concerns relative part of family legacy From page 14

many is the commute, but Daniels says the changing nature of work can be a solution to that problem. “(For) a lot of people now, it’s not a big deal for them to move to the suburbs because so many people telecommute, they job share,” she says, adding in cities like Vancouver, a lot of jobs are moving out of the downtown core, which is becoming primarily residential. Public transit solved the problem for one half of a couple who started out being staunchly urban. “He said ‘You know what, the transit

options are pretty good over there, maybe I’ll get out of my car and use transit instead,’” DuMoulin recounts. The commute is also relative. Daniels and DuMoulin, who are lifelong Lower Mainlanders, couldn’t believe their ears when a couple from Regina complained of a 12-minute drive. “But relative to what they’re used to, that is a commute,” says Daniels. While families who choose to stay urban may have to figure out how to live in less space, they may be closer to amenities. “They can be downtown within five to

10 minutes, the community centres are there, the daycares are there, everything’s there,” says DuMoulin. Part of the fun of the show also comes from comparing house prices and availability in other parts of the country. Vancouverites will be green with jealousy when they watch the Halifax episode. “You’re sitting in Vancouver and thinking crap, I can barely afford a onebedroom apartment for $400,000,” says Daniels. “(Then) you see that in Halifax you can get a nice starter home 10 minutes from the downtown core with nice upgrades for, like, $379,000.”

why they gifted me that name.” While Hendry has relished the solitary work of the artist, she says the act of creating is often a familial event. “I like to work alone and into the wee hours of the morning all by myself, but often I find I like to work with my kids around me. When we go back home to Haida Gwaii it just brings back memories of that because if we have a potlatch we all get together and some will be working on weavings and some will be making button blankets and some will be doing cooking and everybody’s using their gift in different ways but you’re still dialoguing back and forth and it puts you into a slightly different frame of mind,” she says. Hendry’s drums will also be on display at the gallery. “When I started out women really weren’t making a lot of drums,” she says, discussing her love for the practice.While much of her work is steeped in tradition, her approach to making drums was a solitary one. “Pretty much self-taught on that one, and in the day they didn’t have Google or YouTube to figure out how to make one,” she says, laughing. The method used to make a drum varies depending on the climate, according to Hendry. “You have to consider temperature and heat and humidity when you’re creating

the instrument,” she says. Hendry has also produced an apron adorned with a whale motif for the show. “I like to do things that are multi-purpose. You can either wear it, it’s functional, or it can be hung on the wall and looks just as beautiful there,” she says. While she enjoys discussing her art form, Hendry is reluctant to disclose everything that goes into her work. “In the last 50 years there’s been so much appropriation of aboriginal artwork to no benefit of the First Nations people,” she says. It’s a dilemma that often arises as she teaches both students and school teachers about aboriginal art. “I can’t give it all away but there are certain things that I can share with them that they can bring into the school and then teach, but teach with proper cultural context without feeling they’re stepping on anybody’s toes or appropriating things that don’t belong to them.” For Hendry, many of the components of the artwork are possessions of her family. She says it’s crucial to maintain links with the past. “Just the knowledge itself is important for them even if they don’t want to learn how to do it, it’s important that they have that knowledge and can share it with others,” she says. “It’s nice when my kids, my daughter and my son, come over, and we’ll create art together and it’s part of leaving a bit of a legacy.”

Olympic jacket a reminder of mom

Jen St. Denis jstdenis@nsnews.com

FOR years, the bright orange blazer hung in Toni Dembicki’s closet.

TWEET CHIC Follow us on Twitter @NSNLook.

Every so often, she would bring it out to show friends the wool jacket with crisp white piping and mother-of-pearl buttons. The label shows it had been “styled and tailored” by Deacon Sport Wear in Belleville, Ont., and once belonged to one Catherine Gordon Lang. A badge embroidered on the front pocket reads “1936 Olympic Games, Canada.” The jacket is a memento of the journey Dembicki’s mother took in 1936 to join the rest of Canada’s Olympic team in Berlin. Catherine “Bunny” Lang travelled to Germany aboard the Queen Elizabeth I. The jacket is now in the collection of Dance Collection Danse, an archive of Canadian theatrical dance. While Dembicki felt strongly that the jacket should be taken out of the closet and put on display for everyone to see, she was unprepared for how it would feel to part with the beloved piece of clothing. “I didn’t realize how emotional it was going to be when I actually sent it in the mail,” says Dembicki. “I actually cried because it was like I was sending away the last piece of my mom.” Lang wasn’t an athlete, but a dancer who participated in an international cultural showcase alongside the Olympics. It was the first time outside of Canada for the diminutive 23-year-old ballerina from Toronto. Unlike today’s Olympics, the dancers marched with the athletes in the opening ceremonies. “That’s what’s sort of different about the more current Olympics, is that they were really considered a part of the Canadian team,” says Amy Bowring, director of collections and research at Dance Collection Danse. The 1936 Olympics, the last Games held before the Second World War, marked the first time the outside world got a good look at the Nazi regime. Adolf Hitler had intended the 1936 Games to demonstrate his ideals of Aryan superiority. Berlin was the first time an Olympic Games was televised, and an unsettling mix of rigid discipline and military might was on display. “I do remember (my mother) telling me that they were standing at the train station and I guess Hitler was supposed to be somewhere in the crowd somewhere,” says Dembicki. “Everybody was supposed to go ‘Heil Hitler’ — the team didn’t do that and the guards took their rifles and shoved it into their sides to make their arms go up.” While the non-competitive dance festival had a congenial feel, with dancers from Canada, several European countries and India competing, there was one notable absence. “The Americans were not there,” says Bowring. “Martha Graham had been invited and she declined, because she had so many Jewish dancers in her company . . . she didn’t like the politics

of it.” The Canadian dancers who headed to the Olympics were part of a semi-professional company headed by Boris Volkoff, a member of the Russian Imperial Ballet who came to Canada in 1929 and is acknowledged as the father of Canadian ballet. Many of the dancers he trained later became the first members of the National Ballet of Canada, which was founded in 1951. A different fate was in store for Bunny Lang: Romance and then marriage to a handsome young architect who was an Olympian in his own right. Ned Pratt had won a bronze medal in rowing during the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles. The Pratts married in 1937 and lit out for the West Coast in late 1938, living in a cottage on the beach in the Dundarave neighbourhood of West Vancouver during most of the 1940s. Ned Pratt had joined the air force and was stationed in Bella Coola for most of the war, where, says Dembicki, he was “totally bored because he was supposed to be looking for airplanes and he never saw any.” He spent the time writing letters to his new wife, exhorting her to “get out early and collect the wood before all those other West Vancouver babes,” recalls Dembicki. The couple — now a family of four with the birth of Peter in 1940 and Toni in 1944 — left the lean war years and their humble beach cottage behind in the late 1940s. Ned Pratt, who was a contemporary of B.C. Binning and a practitioner of the West Coast Modernist style, built a post-and-beam home in the British Properties in 1951. Ned and Bunny Pratt lived there for the rest of their lives. The home was recently restored by Dembicki’s brother, Peter Pratt, who is also an architect. While raising two children and becoming active in organizations like the local Junior League, Bunny Pratt also taught dance for many years. “She loved dancing, she absolutely loved it,” says Dembicki, describing her mother as a quick-witted, confident woman who shone in social situations. “People loved to talk to her, and she loved to talk to people,” says Dembicki. She also supported her creative husband, acting as a soundboard for his ideas — and playing the odd prank on the absent-minded architect. “My dad, when he got undressed . . . he would just drop his clothes, so my mom got a hammer and nails and nailed his clothes to the floor,” recalls Dembicki, laughing at the memory. “When he went

Board game flick fails

■ Battleship. Directed by Peter Berg. Starring Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Liam Neeson and Rihanna. Rating: (5 out of 10)

Julie Crawford Contributing writer

SO they made a movie out of a beloved board game?

DVD REVIEW of myth from colliding with the human world. All 22 NBC episodes are packaged with special features including The World of Grimm, deleted scenes, cast auditions, a makeupcostuming extra, and more. ••• Joseph Cedar’s Footnote was Israel’s contender for Best Foreign Film this year. Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik are father and son academics, professors of Talmudic studies. Eliezer has

eschewed accolades in his field while his up-and-coming son works the system. But when the father mistakenly gets word that he’ll receive the country’s top academic prize, Uriel must decide whether to sacrifice his career for his father’s happiness. “There are some things more important than the truth.” A sharply written, superbly acted film about competition, loyalty and family.

They laughed at the idea of a movie based on a themepark ride, too, and look how rich it made Johnny Depp. But very high-tech swashbuckling is on the menu on the feature adaptation of Battleship, wherein aliens set their sights on earth. Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch) is the laziest naval officer around, and can’t even muster the courage to ask for his girlfriend’s (Brooklyn Decker) hand in marriage. (Before you judge him, the intimidating Liam Neeson is her dad.) Hopper’s so lazy that he’s about to be bounced out of the navy when alien crafts enter the atmosphere, taking out parts of Hong Kong, Scotland and Germany before docking in the Pacific. It’s time for Hopper to grow up and to save the world, with a little help from Pvt. Rihanna. If only someone could save us from the acting, bad across the board. While the aliens look a bit like Power Rangers, visual effects elsewhere are interesting, and lots of stuff blows up. Watch it for the pyrotechnics, or better yet, play the board game instead. But there are a wealth of special features on the Blu-Ray including an alternate ending introduced by director Peter Berg, a VIP tour of the USS Missouri, an extra on the visual effects, cast bios and much more. ••• In case you missed it: Season One of Grimm features a little lore and lots of gore. Portland detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) discovers that he is descended from an ancient line of criminal profilers known as “Grimms,” and it’s his turn to take up the Grimm cause and keep the supernatural creatures

BOOKS

Collections feature illustrations and artwork ■ Andy Warhol Drawings, Chronicle Books, 79 pages, $19.95.

Terry Peters tpeters@nsnews.com

BEFORE he was the darling of the New York art scene, Andy Warhol was a successful commercial illustrator.

Within those illustrations and many of these early drawings are elements that became more defined in his later work. The repetition of patterns,

blotchy black outlines and the coloured washes seen here evolved into his signature style. In this collection of his early work gorgeous fashion illustrations are mixed in with whimsical animal figures. Warhol’s diversity is presented through the selected drawings while showing the connection to his later approach through his colour choices and flat drawing style. Shoes and cats appear throughout the book much as they continued to be part of Warhol’s art later on. Interspersed through

the art are quotations that offer more insight into his approach and provide a great counterbalance to the

■ New York Drawings, by Adrian Tomine, Drawn & Quarterly, 175 pages, $20.95 A sideways glance, a hint of longing, a feeling of sadness, these are common elements in the drawings of Adrian Tomine. Underlying messages rise up as you study his work and you see the connections between the characters. His illustrations have appeared in The New Yorker magazine since 2004. From that collection of work, Tomine has presented this look at New York, the city he

left California for. His clean style with its soft colour scheme pulls you into each image. You can see his message right away as you are presented with his illustration and the accompanying story. As you spend more time viewing the work, the subtleties of expression and interplay between the characters becomes stronger. Tomine provides notes at the end of the book about each drawing and what he was assigned to illustrate. He makes further comments on his motivations, which makes you want to go

FILM

Story seems authentic in parts

From page 26

Next on the scene is Floyd Banner (Gary Oldman), a glamourous gangster. Knowing Jack’s gentle nature, his big brothers won’t let him help much with the business. He’s their “house dog”, left to sweep up at the gas station-café from where they run things. So it’s only natural that Jack emulates Floyd, right down to wearing the same duds once the money starts coming in, useless clothes for courting a minister’s daughter (Mia Wasikowska). On the heels of one threat comes another: Special Agent Charlie Rakes

(Guy Pearce) is sent in to take an axe to all the stills but is happy to take a sizable cut instead. Forrest is the only one who won’t play. Charlie is alien to the dusty people in Franklin: he “smells funny” and wears dapper clothes for dirty work. There is menace in the precision of Charlie’s wide part, and the gloves he wears while beating victims half to death. Hardy, in between mumbles and meaningful looks, gets the film’s best lines: “It is not the violence that sets man apart: it is the distance he is prepared

to go.” LaBoeuf more than holds his own among the top-notch cast assembled by director John Hillcoat. Musician-writer Nick Cave and Hillcoat have exploited fraternal relationships before, in the equally bloody The Proposition (also starring Guy Pearce). If blood ties rule all, more could be seen of the brothers together, even if — as is the case between Forrest and Howard — they communicate wordlessly. But elsewhere Lawless is undeniably authentic, right down to the birth of NASCAR and the creeping kudzu.

KITTLER - Martha July 23, 1919 - Aug. 22, 2012 It is with extreme sadness that we announce that our Mom, Martha Kittler, passed away peacefully at her residence at Garrison Green, Calgary on Wednesday, August 22, 2012 as a result of several age-related health issues in her 93rd year. Mom (Martha Reich) was born July 23, 1919, in Arzis Besserabia, Romania and married Erhard Kittler in Tarutino in 1936. The family immigrated to Canada in 1953. She is fondly remember by her daughter Elizabeth (Ralph) Spanier, son Harry (Valerie) Kittler, daughterin-law Linda Kittler; grandchildren Gordon Spanier, Lorie Gibson, Susan Kittler, Jason Kittler, Ron Kittler, Ken Kittler, Daniel Kittler, and great-grandchildren Taylor Spanier, Jake Spanier and Karen Kittler. Martha was predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Erhard, and sons Heinz and Dan. Martha attacked all her ambitions and tasks with great enthusiasm and with a quest for quality, whether it was cooking or skills in knitting, sewing and gardening. Martha and Erhard won a Calgary Garden tour contest. She worked hard with Erhard to make Erki Furniture a successful business entity. In later life, Martha and Erhard thoroughly enjoyed travel to Hawaii, Mexico and Europe. Family gatherings and celebrations were always enjoyed by Martha, especially Christmas which brought all the family together no matter where they were. She made tortes for every occasion and had many happy times in the garden greenhouse. Outgoing and outspoken, she possessed a great charm that drew people to her side, always on the bright side with her humor and quick wit. Martha had many friends whom she valued dearly and as well friends whom she met at Arbour Lake and Garrison Green. We would like to give special thanks to Dr. Katherine McKenna and all the loving and caring people on the third floor at Garrison Green. A Celebration of Martha’s life will be held at Foster’s Garden Chapel, 3220 - 4 Street, N.W., Calgary (across from Queen’s Park Cemetery) on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 10:00am. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family via the website www.fostersgardenchapel.ca. Foster’s Garden Chapel Funeral Home and Crematorium. Telephone: 403-297-0888. Honoured Provider of Dignity Memorial.

Mom’s endless love for her family and friends, both here and in England, brought her immense joy. She cared for her friends very deeply and they were an integral part of her life. She had the ability to make everyone she knew feel special, and her generosity was immeasurable. Mom’s passion for line-dancing was inspiring to everyone who knew her, and she treasured the dear friends she made over her 20 years dancing. She performed on the North Shore as a Golden Spur for many years and she sparkled when she was sharing her gift of dance to everyone around her. Our Mom showed us her true strength when she was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago. She faced her diagnosis, treatment, remission and eventual return of the cancer with determination, courage, dignity and grace...and always, her sense of humour. We were honoured to care for her in her time of need, and with Dave’s unwavering devotion as our lead, together we were able to make the journey and be with her to the end. A very special thank you to Dr. Catherine Bazilli for her compassionate care, as well as the extended palliative care team for the special care they gave her. A celebration of her life will be held on Friday, September 7, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at First Memorial/Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Vancouver. Anyone wishing to make a memorial contribution in her memory can be made to B.C. Cancer Foundation or the Heart and Stroke Foundation. We mourn the loss, but celebrate her amazing life. She illuminated our lives with a special magic and her crystal blue eyes...we are so grateful for all of the gifts she gave us. Our Dancing Queen will remain in our hearts forever.

1075 SANDERSON, Frances Helen (Doyle) Jul 27, 1930 - Aug 20, 2012 After a long and wonderful life, Frances, loving wife, mother, nanny, sister, aunt and friend passed away peacefully on Monday August 20 at the age of 82. She was predeceased by Donald Courtney and Jack Physick. Frances will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by her husband Dave, son Stephen, daughters Christine (Bill), Catherine, and Carrie (Mike), stepson Kerry (Tara) and cherished by her grandchildren Jennifer, Thomas, Matthew, Claire, and Cameron. She also leaves behind her dear sister, Shirley MacMillan. Mom lived a full and happy life in North Vancouver, always dedicated to her family. She travelled the world in her later years; England, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Mexico, and Hawaii being some of her ports of call. She loved seeing the world, but she loved coming home even more. Home was where her heart was.

THE newest Ford Taurus SHO is a big rig, offering a great ride on open highways and high mountain passes and a comfortable interior.

2013 Ford Taurus SHO

Sedan shows its true colours

Brendan McAleer Contributing writer

SUPER High Output: That’s what the three-letter acronym SHO used to stand for. When, in 1989, these letters appeared on the flanks of Ford’s Taurus family sedan, not too many folks paid attention. Then, one imagines, the sedate fourdoor wound its Yamaha-engineered 3.0-litre V-6 engine up to an ear-splitting 7,300 r.p.m. and folks sat up and took notice. With 220 horsepower, the original SHO was something quite special, a sort of M5 for the Midwest masses. Even today, the original high-revver (later models were available with a V-8) finds fans among lovers of esoteric machinery

— Conan O’Brien has a green one and Jay Leno has a Ford Festiva with the same engine stuffed in the back. But the Taurus is no longer a mid-sized family hauler. It’s a big rig — a fullsized continent crosser designed for open highways and high mountain passes. And the engine that powers this, the new bearer of the iconic SHO badge, is no high-revving V-6. In fact, it’s the same 3.5-litre twin-turbo Ecoboost that you can get in the Ford Flex Wagon, or in the F150. Even so, Ford’s been doing a pretty good job of resurrecting convincing modern versions of the greatest hits of the past — Mustang Boss 302, anyone? So is this big sedan worthy of the badge, or is it all show and no SHO? Design:

SHO’s interior lets drivers enjoy the ride

From page 43

Speaking of show, this new, updated version of the Taurus is certainly a big-tent affair. It’s absolutely massive. Benefits? Certainly curbside cred is no problem. The SHO sports big 20-inch alloy wheels, aggressive aero tweaks, and a large hexagonal grille that gives the impression that you could refuel by hoovering up subcompacts like hapless krill. Downsides? Did I mention how big this car is? It’s like the QEII, sport edition. Even with standard back-up camera, parallel-parking the SHO requires a certain amount of patience, and perhaps some prior experience at the helm of a cruise liner. Overall though, the big Taurus certainly looks the part. Environment: Another side benefit to the overall heft of this big sedan is climbing into the thing. It’s a horizontal move, rather than the hoist-up into an SUV or crossover, or the clamber-down into a sportscar. No doubt this is a hat-tip to the likely older demographic that’ll be looking hard at this car. However, climb inside, and things are new-tech enough to be a bit confusing. Soft-touch controls for A/C and stereo are cool to look at, but are nowhere near as effective as the no-look simplicity of a humble knob. What’s more, the Taurus has a sort of reverse-Tardis effect going on. It’s gargantuan on the outside, but that doesn’t necessarily translate to huge interior space. Not that it’s cramped or anything — rear seat passengers certainly have plenty of room (and heated seats) — just not as spacious as one might expect. MyFord touch remains a difficult system to simply jump in and pick up without instruction. It’s powerful, but don’t leave the dealership without a thorough lesson, and maybe make

Before flying off in an incandescent rage, sink back and let the massaging seats do their thing. With many tweaks made to improve the interior look, the SHO is a nice place to relax. Hang on — this is supposed to be a performance sedan — grasp the Alcantara-lined steering wheel and punch it, Chewie!

New Taurus model lives for long, fast sweepers From page 44

get is twin-turbo V-6 fuelconsumption and twinturbo V-6 acceleration. The Ecoboost mill has a torque curve that’s as high and flat as a New Mexico mesa. Get the SHO lined up on an on-ramp from a stop and stomp the go-pedal and the all-wheel-drive system transfers all 365 h.p. and 350 foot-pounds of torque directly to the pavement without an iota of slip. The result is a zero to 100 kilometres/hour dash in just over five seconds. Oof! Out on the highway, all that mid-range power is both a boon and a liability. The SHO lives for long, fast sweepers, and you get the sense that it could outrun its Mustang stablemates in any high-speed, cross-country dash. Unfortunately, that sort of thing is going to get your keys taken away. It’s all too easy to find your speed creeping up in the SHO’s whisper-quiet cabin, and given that the AWD traction provides the confidence to pretty much ignore the elements — a new Curve Control system and torque-vectoring make up for ham-handed driver inputs — the SHO has capabilities that easily exceed its legal limits. Happily (or unhappily, depending on your view), it’s not really the kind of machine that encourages bad behaviour. Unlike ticketmagnets like that brightorange Boss Mustang, the SHO has the gumption to go, but is also perfectly happy to potter along on cruise control. Features: As you might expect, being king of the hill for the Taurus lineup, the SHO is crammed full of every option under the sun. The MyFord Touch suite of technologies controls iPhone, Bluetooth and other connectivity functions. A 12speaker stereo system stands ready to pump out all your favourite road-trip tunes. Rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights and a heated steering wheel all contribute to a happier wet-weather drive. And then there’s the tech designed to keep you on the road. As mentioned, the SHO comes equipped with Curve Control, a system that utilizes automatic braking of individual wheels to control the understeer inherent in such a heavy sedan. Torquevectoring all-wheel-drive transfers the power around to help you blast out of the corner safely. Optioning the $1,200 Performance package adds stiffer shocks and springs,

V-6 might not have the turbo-punch of the SHO, but the TL’s got less mass to haul around. All in all, the TL is the hidden jewel in Acura’s crown. While everyone natters about the upcoming NSX, the TL remains one of the best driver’s cars still available from an ever-moreconservative Honda. And one thing everyone always forgets to talk about: how thoroughly excellent it sounds when you wind that 3.7-litre six-cylinder right out to the redline. ■ BMW 535i xDrive

Big, fast, luxurious. Looks like you just got the attention of the Germans, Ford. Here’s why they aren’t worried, despite the equivalentlyequipped 5-series being approximately $20,000 more expensive: it says BMW on the front. Not to be facetious, but the SHO’s price-tag is pretty big for a car that wears the humble blue oval. Big, American sedans depreciating as quickly as they do, and BMW resale values being quite high at the moment, there’s little doubt that the 5-series will lease out fairly close in payment to the SHO — at least it will if you leave some of the options off.
