NV mayors urge carbon tax change Make transit, green initiatives the focus, say Walton and Mussatto James Weldon jweldon@nsnews.com

TWO North Shore mayors have added their voices to a growing chorus of civic leaders calling for B.C.’s carbon tax to be diverted to transit.

District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton and City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto said the controversial levy, currently under review by the province, could provide a vital lifeline for Lower Mainland public transportation and for other green initiatives. “We need to invest clearly and demonstrably in activities that will allow people an (alternative) — a very clear alternative — to burning fossil fuels,” said Walton. “Public transportation is the one that just jumps out at you.” The tax, introduced by then-Premier Gordon Campbell in 2008, levies a surcharge on a wide range of carbon-based fuels, from gasoline to coal to jet fuel. It was pegged initially at $10 per tonne of CO2 and has risen annually since then, hitting its planned peak of $30 a tonne See TransLink page 3

A home that caught fire in West Vancouver’s West Hill area Monday could have been severely damaged had it not been for a water pipe that burst in a downstairs wall, according to firefighters.

Residents of the house in the 2600-block of Chelsea Court were at home at about 10 p.m. when they smelt burning. Firefighters arrived to find the elderly couple outside and grey smoke billowing from the basement and both upper floors. After setting up ventilation, crews dove into the structure, eventually tracking the source of the smoke to a basement storage room. The flames were still burning, but they had been kept in check by a nearby water pipe that had ruptured in the heat. “(It) helped keep that fire at bay for sure,” said division fire chief Martin Ernst. “This is a wood-frame home. . . .

Local cops join ride to fight cancer

Friday, September 14, 2012 - North Shore News - A3

Motivation not lacking for 900km fundraising marathon Sarah Ripplinger Special to the North Shore News

LOSING a loved one to cancer is difficult. For West Vancouver police Const. Glenn Marshall, losing a father and father-in-law to this disease has been both a source of pain and motivation. “I had signed on to ride the tour before my father was diagnosed with cancer,” said Marshall, who will be part of a Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer bicycle tour this September. “His passing has motivated me even more to commit to helping (to prevent) kids and their families from knowing that pain.” Marshall will be among more than 30 riders taking part in the Tour de Coast — one of four Cops for Cancer tours designed to raise money for childhood cancer research and programs for kids and the families of kids affected by cancer. Two other local officers will be joining him: RCMP Const. Corey Abendroth and WVPD photo supplied Const. Griffin Gillan “I am very blessed to have two wonderful healthy children and WVPD Const.

H. Bay pier will stay open to vehicles

Council reverses decision, but overweight vehicles a concern Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

HORSESHOE Bay pier is staying open for vehicle traffic this October after council reversed plans to close the dock at a council meeting Monday.

The District of West Vancouver had announced a plan to shut the pier to everything except pedestrians and emergency vehicles beginning Oct. 1 in a bid to protect the wharf’s structural integrity. After consulting with many residents who regularly use the pier, the plan was amended to maintain a steady flow of traffic at the dock. “We underestimated the inconvenience to users of the pier,” said Anne Mooi, director of parks and community services for the district. The switch was appreciated by resident John Lowe. As a frequent visitor to Keats Island, Lowe said a pier closure would represent a “serious impediment to islanders.” The closure was originally set to be enacted to assure a smooth path for emergency vehicles, to protect pedestrians and to protect the pier from further deterioration. Despite signs indicating the weight limit on the pier, many wharf-users drive heavy vehicles onto the pier and cause serious damage to the dock, according to a recent report. The pier was inspected in mid-2011 by the engineering firm MMM Group. The company, which regularly inspects bridges, discovered structural stress points at the pier’s bent caps, which support the driving surface. No vehicle on the pier should exceed 9,000 kilograms, according to the company’s report. MMM Group’s findings suggest the pier is regularly being loaded well above the maximum weight limit. Wear and tear on the structure are projected to cost the district approximately $300,000 in capital costs over the next 10 years. “How are we going to pay for it?” asked Coun. Craig Cameron.

In an attempt to reduce the burden shouldered by West Vancouver taxpayers, Cameron suggested instituting a levy system. A system of fees earmarked for the pier’s upkeep would place the onus of responsibility on the dock users, who are needed to look after the wharf, said Cameron. “There’s going to be an enforcement issue here and we can’t have a municipal staff person sitting there 24/7,” he said. The signs on the pier indicating the weight limit are frequently ignored, according to West Vancouver naturalist and dock-user Bruce McArthur. “Unless you can enforce what’s happening at the pier, there’s no sense changing anything,” he told council. The district is currently preparing bylaws which would penalize overweight vehicles and unsafe drivers on the dock, but there are currently no penalties for drivers who contribute to the pier’s deterioration. “There’s really no control on the pier as to who can get on and off,” said Coun. Bill Soprovich. For several decades, the dock was supervised by Billy Lord, who traded 10 hours of work as a watchman for free moorage for his houseboat. Lord’s arrangement with the district was terminated in March, 2011, when the district decided the long-time watchman could not sub-contract out his work when he was away from the dock. Lord’s job entailed keeping an eye on the dock for overloading, filing monthly safety reports, and cleaning debris out from underneath the pier.

HEN did the implications of climate change morph from scary to boring? Globally, the consequences of shifting weather patterns would appear more frightening than ever — not just in economic terms but in the potential cost to life in all forms on this planet. Yet many politicians, especially in senior governments, pay scant attention to climate change. That’s our fault as much as theirs. If there is little political interest, it’s because there is no voter cost to ignoring what should be a driving force behind many political decisions. It’s unfortunate that Gordon Campbell was not a “people’s premier” with an old-school orator’s skills. Because as much as the carbon tax he introduced was hated, it was the right medicine for the times. It needed a

champion. Capping it and giving it back in other forms of tax cuts only served to make the tax matter less. On Thursday the Sierra Club of B.C. released a scathing report, arguing that B.C.’s contributions to global carbon emissions are four times greater than what our government reports. We confidently predict that the result will be an argument over the methodology employed, not a commitment to do anything to improve provincial emissions. Yet there is an opportunity at hand. Our municipal mayors are on the right track when they argue for some of the gas tax revenue now collected to be used to pay for transit improvements and other green municipal products. If we want people to drive less, reducing carbon emissions, we have to provide workable alternatives.

Friendship kills a newspaperman’s sources

UNLESS you are very, very sweet, the following must have occurred to you, especially when a reporter scores what used to be called a scoop:

Does friendship, partisanship, old family or business, school, religious, ethnic or other ties, or drinks after the day’s work — in plain words, cronyism — twist the reporter’s story, shape the columnist’s opinion, distort what’s really happening, misinform the public, and leave history to sort out the truth, if any? Cynics will say it’s naive to even ask. The reporter who cultivates the most friendships — cronies — harvests the most inside stuff, scoops, right? I try to avoid raising questions without answering them. But the fact is: Although I’ve been in paid journalism 21,552 days and counting, I can’t speak for others. Imagine trying to

This Just In

Trevor Lautens dig out the data. Would journalists tell? Talk about giving away trade secrets. Talk about indiscretion. Talk about valuable contacts vanishing, if names are named. There is only one journalist — I prefer the term newspaperman, but let it pass, and it has — who will volunteer to answer, but only for himself. Me, you will have guessed. My experience is that personal friendship with politicians is exactly the opposite of the cynic’s belief. Friendship doesn’t grow a

source. It extinguishes it. Other, better journalists — and the better politicians too — may readily separate friendship from occupation. They do not exploit the personal tie. The one keeps a dignified distance from the other. In public, they do not cease to ask hard questions on the one side, or to answer (or dodge) them on the other. If they exist, they are marked for sainthood. Which brings me, with laboured step, to a classic current example: British Columbia’s newly minted minister of state for seniors and member of the Legislative Assembly for West VancouverCapilano, Ralph Sultan. Sultan (pronounced like the raisin) and I meet occasionally for lunch. I warmly look forward to these meetings. We chat. We speak generally about political happenings. Nothing deeper than like thousands of other people over lunch. No secrets sought or offered. Relaxed. Just a couple of old guys sayin’. Busily resting a week or

two ago, and on a small island with weak communications, I mused that if at home I would have playfully asked Sultan for any thoughts he had about Premier Christy Clark’s about-to-be-shuffled cabinet. In fact I had a hunch he’d be in it. When this proved correct, I wondered how he would have responded. He couldn’t have breached secrecy. And now Sultan is a cabinet minister. More secrecy. I sent him an email last weekend. I dutifully asked what vision for seniors he had. Offered congratulations, of course. But the subject line tipped the personal issue. It was: “What Henry Adams said.” Puzzling? The email’s last words explained: “Ah, and what did Henry Adams say — in his excellent The Education of Henry Adams, an autobiography quirkily written in the third person? You may well have run across the book, fine 19th-century reading. “What Henry, a member of the distinguished American family, said was: “‘A friend in

office is a friend lost.’” And lunch with Ralph will never be quite the same.

••• Agent 650fgTy, one of my ablest operatives, advises that the city of Penticton and the local of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) have signed a four-year contract providing increases of 0.75 a year, eliminating 31 of its 280 employee positions (11 per cent of the workforce), and reducing the number of its $75,000-plus employees from 75 to 59. Wow. Tells more about the wimpiness of the economic recovery than a faculty of economists. This led my Agent 90Kple3 to note that West Vancouver council begins its own contract discussions this month. Any urge to imitate? Mayor Mike Smith, you’re on: “In West Van there was no tax increase this year and I would personally not support one next year, as I think we need to challenge ourselves to find other revenue sources besides property taxes,” Smith

responded. For years municipal employees have won settlements “well above inflation, particularly in police and fire. Unfortunately both these services have arbitration rights under the provincial Police and Fire Act. I have personally, as has our council, lobbied the province for changes to this act” — unsuccessfully. Smith made a nonetoo-subtle reference to Metro municipalities that bargain with CUPE, a major contributor in their elections, “but thankfully not in West Van. We have the West Vancouver Municipal Employees Association, and it is my hope that we will have respectful bargaining with them.” It will be a tough test of Smith’s public sector frugality. He talked against raising council pay this year. But he didn’t walk the walk. He caved in, to make council support for their pay raise unanimous. Not Smith’s, or councillors’, finest hour. tlautens@telus.net

Cabinet shuffle offers no change in direction SOME idle musings, random thoughts and scattered analysis of Premier Christy Clark’s shuffle of her cabinet:

Are the B.C. Liberals worried about losing seats in their traditional Okanagan stronghold? Clark promoted two MLAs — Ben Stewart and Norm Letnick — from Kelowna to join Steve Thomson at the cabinet table. It’s unusual for so many MLAs from a small geographic region to make the cut for cabinet, so this overload may suggest the premier is concerned where her party sits with the voters in an area which is traditionally fairly conservative in outlook. Rich Coleman is one powerful guy. His decision to stay on and run again saw him rewarded with the deputy premier designation, and he retains responsibility for energy issues (including natural gas, offshore oil and gas, mining, electricity, and alternative energy) plus housing, liquor and gambling. Should his party lose the next election, Coleman is well

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

positioned to be the point man in any rebuilding effort, since he holds a fairly safe seat and should survive to fight another day. For all her talk of “renewal,” the shuffle masks the fact that only two MLAs who had never served in cabinet before — Letnick and Ralph Sultan — were elevated to the high table. A lot of people moved around, but not many moved up — partly due, of course, to the fact Clark didn’t have a lot of bodies to draw on since so many of her caucus members are not seeking re-election.

It’s popularity, not population Dear Editor: Census data from 1996 to 2011 shows that the number of children (ages 0 to 19) in School District 44 (City and District of North Vancouver) has only decreased by 135 kids, or less than 0.5 per cent. District 44 data indicates that during this same period the public school population has decreased by more than 40 per cent. The superintendent and trustees of District 44 say they are closing schools and contemplating selling excess school lands because of declining enrolment. But they are being disingenuous when implying that the enrolment is declining because there are fewer students living in the school district. Declining enrolment is not due to a lack of students, but rather to the inability of District 44 to attract and retain pupils. Rick Burns North Vancouver

Speaking of “renewal,” the shuffle provided no indication there would be a change in direction for the government in any serious way. The emphasis on job creation and the increasingly vague “families first” policy are still front and centre as the premier’s stated priorities. There was some talk of a new tax break, but the government’s finances are in such dire straits any such break won’t likely amount to much. We now have a doctor running health care and a teacher overseeing education. Dr. Margaret MacDiarmid is a former president of the B.C. Medical Association, no less. I can’t recall if B.C. has ever had a doctor as health minister. The NDP’s Dr. Tom Perry was the Opposition health critic, but not the

minister. MacDiarmid herself admits it’s unusual for any government to put a doctor in charge of health, so it will be interesting to see how this experiment plays out. Former teacher Don MacRae is now education minister. He’s known for his combative nature in the legislature, so I can’t imagine B.C. Teachers Federation president Susan Lambert and him getting all warm and fuzzy any time soon. It appears the last-second walk in the sun by Blair Lekstrom, who told the premier he wouldn’t be seeking re-election after she had made most of her cabinetmaking decisions, resulted in the labour ministry suddenly disappearing into Jobs Minister Pat Bell’s growing empire. Once upon a time, being labour minister in this

province was a fairly big job, but now it’s become almost an afterthought; a sign, perhaps, of the diminished presence of the labour movement in this province. Despite being stuck in what appears to be a very deep hole when it comes to popularity, the B.C. Liberal caucus is still putting up a fairly relaxed front. The cabinet shuffle ceremony, while not exactly a laugh-a-minute affair, was marked by a fair amount of joking around by those involved. Many observers have drawn parallels to the political situations of 1991 and 2001, when the government of the day was torn by bitter internal dissent and infighting. Quite the opposite atmosphere was on display at the cabinet ceremony, or at a couple of other events attended by caucus members, including

those not running again, during the next two days. Of course, this may yet change, although the internal problems of the B.C. Conservative party over its leadership may also be a reason for B.C. Liberals to keep smiling for a while yet. It is said nice guys finish last. That adage may apply to the 79-year-old Sultan, who finally made it into cabinet after almost 12 years on the backbench and whose appointment comes at a point that may indeed be near the end of his party’s time in government. Nevertheless, I’ll bet even New Democrat MLAs will be pleased to see the affable and respected Sultan take his seat at the cabinet table.

INQUIRING REPORTER SATURDAY’S NHL hockey lockout deadline has many Canucks fans worried. The NHL and the NHL Players’ Association exchanged proposals on Wednesday in New York, meeting for the first time in almost a week. If this labour dispute is not settled this weekend, at least part of the hockey season will be affected. And if hockey is not played at all this year, longtime Canucks fans are concerned their team’s window of opportunity for a cup run will start to close. Find us on Facebook or Twitter and tell us what you think — Nanette van Doorn

Anne Marie North Vancouver “It’s a unfortunate you know, people look forward to it especially in this city. It’s disappointing especially for the kids because it’s fun for them.”

Do you care about an NHL lockout or shortened hockey season?

Danilo Borrel North Vancouver “We are going to miss the game. I hope that they will negotiate to push through this season.”

Mike McQuarrie North Vancouver “I’m not at all concerned. I don’t like the violence in the hockey.”

RCMP seek m/cycle theft witnesses

TWO motorcycles were stolen on the same day from a residential parking lot in the 1800-block of Purcell Way in North Vancouver.

Cpl. Richard De Jong, a spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP, said these thefts were more than likely related. “We’ve have had other thefts in that area which is why I wanted to alert the public,” said De Jong. The first motorbike stolen is a red 2000 Honda, XR250 with a B.C. licence plate number, U14810. The second is a 2010 KTM 690, orange and black with a B.C. licence plate number,

S78670. A witness described a man tampering with the tire and bike locks. The suspect is described as having an average build, dark hair, having arm tattoos and possible driving a black or grey pickup truck. “We are looking for any potential witnesses that may have seen anything or somebody trying to sell these bikes,” said De Jong. Anyone who knows about these thefts or the whereabouts of the motorbikes is asked to call the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311. — Nanette van Doorn

WV police seek car vandal

WEST Vancouver police are hoping someone from the public can help them find a man caught on video vandalizing parked cars on Canada Day A witness saw the suspect in the area of 11th Street and Jefferson Avenue around 10:30 a.m. on July 1 and began filming. The suspect “keyed” two parked cars and then quickly disappeared from the area. Police searched the neighbourhood but had no luck finding him. Police describe him as a white man, 60 to 65 years old. At the time of the offence, he was wearing a white shirt, cargo shorts, glasses and a fanny pack. Anyone with information about the crime or suspect is asked to called West Vancouver Police Department at 604-9257300. — Brent Richter

Open wide, please – in 3-D NV company pioneers new dental technology in competition

Nanette van Doorn newsroom@nsnews.com

A North Vancouver company hopes to change the future of dental surgery. Udi Daon, founder and CEO of Navi Dent, says his new technology allows dental surgeons to see their operations in three dimensions and in real time as they are happening. The idea is good enough that Navi Dent has been shortlisted as a top-10 finisher in the New Ventures Competition. The New Ventures Competition, largely sponsored by the British Columbia Innovations Council, is designed to help new B.C.-based technology companies get education and

mentorship. Some will win cash prizes. The competition began in April with 146 companies who have been getting education seminars relevant to technology startups. “The top 25 companies have also been given three mentors per company as well as additional feedback from mentors and jury members,” said Angie Schick, program manager for the New Ventures Competition. Daon, who started Navi Dent slightly more than a year ago, has made it though three rounds of jury-judged competition and made his final presentation to a jury of judges on Thursday. “I’m not that nervous because I know my material, I guess the normal performance

anxiety,” said Daon last week. Daon, a newcomer to Canada, says the competition has allowed him to network and work with mentors on business plans and investor pitches. He said that winning would mean the world to him. “As a starving startup, which most startups are, any infusion of cash is blessed. But regardless of that, I think it is going to be a tremendous push to our success to win because by then we will have been validated so many times.” Daon said his technology uses an image created by a Cone Beam CT scan to make a three dimensional image of a person’s mouth before surgery. Then, filming the dentist and the patient’s mouth while the surgery is happening, a live image of the surgery is shown on a monitor. Daon said he will be conducting a clinical scenario with his technology by the end

Cap Suspension Bridge wins award

CAPILANO Suspension Bridge Park has won the marketer of the year award from the B.C. chapter of the American Marketing Association.

The BCAMA chose the suspension bridge because

of its multi faceted campaign to promote the park’s new Cliffwalk. “It is truly an honour to receive this prestigious award, and we thank the BCAMA for this recognition. Building a new multi-million dollar attraction in the tourism climate of the past several years was a bold move,” said Nancy Stibbard,

owner and CEO for Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. The park’s promotional campaign used online, social media, radio, sales initiatives and outdoor advertising to draw people to the Cliffwalk where people can walk along seven bridges suspended in the tops of trees. — Nanette van Doorn

of the month. He hopes that his new technology will make dental surgery less expensive, less risky and faster. Schick says the companies have been growing and improving since April, especially Navi Dent. “They’re on the upswing for sure, I think they’ve improved steadily in terms of jury reception with each round. And entrepreneur Daon has a really good reputation, so I would say he’s got just as good a chance as some of the other strong companies,” Schick said. The winners will be announced at an award ceremony on Sept. 26 and will share more than $230,000 in cash and prizes.

Gaming grants announced 14 North Shore organizations have gotten a funding boost totalling $554,140 as part of the Community Gaming Grants.

These grants given by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development allow local community groups to provide services to families in their region. The North Shore Girls Soccer Club has received $125,000, while the North Vancouver Minor Hockey Association has been granted $100,000 and the Grouse Mountain Tyee Ski Club $50,000. The remaining 11 groups each received less than $50,000: North West Vancouver Ringette Association, $17,150; Vancouver Freestyle Ski Club, $13,500; Seymour Art Gallery Society, $35,000; Lynn Valley Little League Association, $23,280; Seymour Basketball Association, $8,400; North Shore Female Ice Hockey Association, $35,000; Vancouver Skating Club, $40,000; Highlands Little League Baseball Association, $19,750; Chena Swim Club, $40,600; West Vancouver Youth Band Society, $20,000; West Vancouver Otters Swim Club, $26,260. The grants were announced Aug. 31 and are designed to help fund programs in arts, culture, social services, environment and sport. Shauna Tucker, president of the North Shore Girls Soccer Club, said, “We are of course delighted to have received the money and very grateful. Soccer is the most played game among girls and young women in North Vancouver.” — Nanette van Doorn

SARAH McLachlan has performed at several fundraisers with former U.S. President Bill Clinton over the years and he will return the favour by speaking tomorrow at Voices in the Park. The all-day concert starts at 2 p.m. in Brockton Fields at Stanley Park.

ALL-DAY CONCERT BENEFITS SARAH MCLACHLAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC

Voices in the Park

■ Voices in the Park: A Concert to Benefit the Sarah McLachlan School of Music. Artists performing: Sarah McLachlan, Bryan Adams, Stevie Nicks, Hedley, Jann Arden, Chin Injeti, The Boom Booms, Hey Ocean! and Whitehorse with a special guest appearance by former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Brockton Fields at Stanley Park, Saturday, Sept.15 from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. For more details visit www.voicesinthepark.com.

Rosalind Duane rduane@nsnews.com

SARAH McLachlan is wearing a lot of hats these days. In the lead-up to her benefit concert Voices in the Park, the popular Canadian singer is hands-on with various last-minute details: finishing touches on the venue, preparing for the impressive roster of arriving artists, and much more. “There are so many balls up in the air, so many moving parts, so many things coming together,” she notes. Just three days before the show in Stanley Park,

McLachlan sounds cheery on the phone. When asked how involved she has been with the production of the event, she answers with a laugh: “Quite.” She adds: “I think that maybe next time I’ll back off a little bit because I tend to get in there and start to micro-manage or get too involved in the details, and I don’t really need to know the details because I’ve got great people taking care of that. But that being said, I want everything to go perfectly, so I’m asking lots of questions all the time.” However, after years at the helm of the popular Lilith Fair music festivals that toured to great success in the 1990s, McLachlan is no rookie when it comes to putting on this type of show. “Having been a part of those for so many years I certainly know how it works. I know how to make artists happy and I know how a show should run so, yeah, that’s been a great help,” she says. Voices in the Park is a benefit concert for the Sarah McLachlan School of Music in Vancouver, which offers free music education for children in various at-risk or underserved circumstances. McLachlan has arranged an eclectic lineup of favourites for the oneday event, including Bryan Adams, Stevie Nicks, Jann Arden, Hedley, Hey Ocean, and more.

“That was just serendipitous who said yes. It was probably because I have relationships with most of these people,” says McLachlan, who admits she started out with “a great long list” of possible performers. “You always know you’re going to get about three per cent,” she notes of the final tally, but is happy about the diverse talent. “Whenever you put together a festival you’re looking at a lot of different variables, different musical styles and you want to draw a diverse audience, but you also have to work with who you get, too.” One of the most interesting members of the lineup is former U.S. president Bill Clinton, who will be speaking at the concert. “I’ve done a lot of fundraisers for him over the years and I had the opportunity to sit down to dinner with him about eight months ago at one and got to talking about my school and what I was doing and he said, ‘You’ve done so much for me over the years is there anything I can do to help?’ and of course the first thing that came to my mind was, come to my event. And he agreed,” she explains. See Two page 38

FILM

Phone sex comedy pushes all the buttons Local filmmaker Jamie Travis makes his feature-length debut

■ For A Good Time Call . . . Directed by Jamie Travis. Starring Ari Graynor, Lauren Miller and Seth Rogen. Focus Features.

Julie Crawford Contributing Writer

GAL-PAL flick For A Good Time Call… may be set in big, bad New York City, but the only Village director Jamie Travis knew growing up was Edgemont Village, where mom worked and around which he delivered the North Shore News.

photo supplied

ACTRESS Ari Graynor and actress/co-writer Lauren Miller flank director Jamie Travis on the set of For A Good Time Call..., which opened Sept. 7 at Scotiabank Theatre.

Starring Ari Graynor and Lauren Anne Miller, Travis’s feature debut tells the (sort of) true tale about two young women — polar opposite personalities — who launch a phone-sex line in order to pay the bills. It’s a few jumps from the insulated and “pleasant childhood” Travis says he spent on the North Shore. “I loved it there… it was a great place to grow up.” In high school Travis was the type of student who was completely absorbed in his schoolwork and in photography, spending “many months” in the darkroom at Handsworth. “Anything less than an A plus was unacceptable.” That work ethic can be seen in the exactitude of his award-winning short films. “It’s the only way I know how to make films,” he admits. He always had a knack for writing, but Travis found himself dividing his time between arts and science courses at university. He was thrown when he failed his very first course — biochemistry — dropped out, and went to Europe. (“So stereotypical, I know!”) When he came back he knew he wanted to pursue filmmaking, and earned a coveted spot in

FILM NEW ON DVD

Fairy tale made for grownups

■ Snow White and the Huntsman. Directed by Rupert Sanders. Starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. New on DVD. Snow White and the Huntsman is a fairy tale for grownups. The original Brothers Grimm fairy tale was all about poisonous combs and red-hot iron shoes and dancing until you died: there was no singing down a wishing well. This horror story centres on the evil queen (Charlize Theron), who sucks the life out of nubile young maidens in order to stay young. Snow White (Kristen Stewart) has been locked up in a tower since she was a little girl, but when she escapes one day, the queen sends a woodsman (Chris Hemsworth) into the dark forest to bring her back. Extended edition is packed with extras including a 360-degree set tour, a piece on reinventing the fairy tale, commentary with director Rupert Sanders, editor and visual effects supervisor, and much more. — Julie Crawford

FILM

Real core of story is female friendship From page 18

UBC’s film program. A much-lauded short film career followed. His Patterns trilogy and The Saddest Children In The World trilogy, six films in all, all premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, traveled the film festival circuit and would eventually be released on DVD by Zeitgeist Films in 2010. Travis traveled, when

film retrospectives of his work were shown in Prague, London and Paris. Was that when he knew he had made it? “What makes you think I feel like I’ve made it?” he laughs. “No, when my work represents a singular voice to viewers, that’s a real privilege.” Travis headed east to follow the work and cultivate a busy career making TV commercials and music videos (for duo Tegan and

NORTH SHORE

Sara). He wasn’t in a huge rush, he says, to jump into feature film directing. “I had been reading scripts for years, I had been writing projects of my own . . . . but if I can’t love the script and want to get in bed with it for a year or two or three, I can’t do it.” Then a script crossed his path about two young women, former enemies, reacquainted by a mutual friend (Justin Long) and living together by necessity in an expensive New York City flat. Lauren (Miller,

who co-wrote with Katie Anne Naylon) is straightlaced while Katie (Graynor) is the opposite, the Oscar to Lauren’s Felix. Turns out that Katie is a phone-sex operator in her spare time. Once the ever-pragmatic Lauren gets over her embarrassment she joins in, and the pair set up a profitable little business, their friendship and their bank accounts growing. There are hilarious cameos courtesy of Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith, set against the film’s candy-coloured retro

aqua and hot pink palette: “the pretty package nullifies any dirtiness,” insists Travis. “I laughed out loud, I cried. It struck an emotional nerve in me,” he says, likening the film to those girlfriend flicks of the 1980s — think Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin, Goldie Hawn. “(Those) were not about getting a guy or losing the guy: the real core of the story is one of female friendship.” The success of Bridesmaids helped change the climate and proved that there’s an audience for female-driven

Saturday Morning Author Talk with Susan Juby Award winning comedic writer Susan Juby will share the dashed hopes and lowered expectations essential to her humorous writing. She’ll read from The Woefield Poultry Collective, a heartwarming novel about learning how to take on a challenge and find friendship in the most unlikely of places.

comedies, he says. Travis, who grew up in an all-female household, says he walked into his first meeting with a lot of confidence: “I get the intimacy of female friendships, so I told them ‘I am totally the right person to direct this’.” It’s a chick movie, sure, but Travis, who has spent the past 22 days travelling to promote the film, says the response has been consistent across demographics. “We knew that the film would connect with the 20something female population but men are loving it, and elderly people. . . We screened the film in Ann Arbor, where there was a lot of grey hair in the audience, and they loved it,” he says, noting that the “unusually sweet raunch-com” has been compared to Doris Day’s Pillow Talk. In contrast to the precision of his short films, Travis’s feature debut represents a much more relaxed approach, despite the film’s impossibly tight, 16day shoot. “It was the first time I could make a film that was all about fun. My goal was to make people laugh out loud, and I’d never had that before.” And so Travis is heading west again, to Los Angeles this time, repeating the mantra of so many Hollywood-bound directors: “I will maintain my integrity — I will never choose a film script based on money.”

FILM

Milla Jovovich no ordinary fashionista

Resident Evil has earned model global action hero credentials

■ Resident Evil: Retribution. Directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, the fifth instalment in the Resident Evil film series, based on the Capcom survival horror video game series.

Julie Crawford Contributing Writer

THE general consensus seems to be that beauty pageant winners and catwalk veterans have no business treading the boards or mugging for the camera, lest it be to sell perfume or jeans. Milla Jovovich may not yet be in the company of models who have gone on to grab Oscar nominations (among them Charlize Theron, Halle Berry and Kim Basinger, former Body on Tap shampoo saleswoman) but she can join the ranks of former models laughing all the way to the bank. Jovovich’s fifth record-busting Resident Evil film opens today. The franchise, which enjoys a symbiotic relationship with the video games of the same name, has amassed over $700 million worldwide and earned Jovovich kick-ass action heroine status, not to mention a third husband, Resident Evil writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson, with whom she has a daughter, Ever. Resident Evil: Retribution features Jovovich as Alice, battling monsters and dodging bullets and machetes, in plasma-splattering 3D. The omnipotent Umbrella Corporation has a volatile T-virus, which has made the world population undead. Alice and a small group of crusaders not zombie-fied by the virus lead a charge to punish those responsible. Her team includes a miraculously recovered Rain Ocampo (Michelle Rodriguez), who turned zombie and was killed off in the first film; Luther West (Boris Kodjoe) presumed dead in last movie; and Wesker (Shawn Roberts), blown up by an atom See Humanity’s page 28

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE

mattie à la mode

Prints trump colour this fall DEAR Mattie:

What colours are in fashion this fall season? Excited in Capilano

Follow us on Twitter @NSNLook.

Dear Capilano: This fall season is a little different from previous fashion seasons. Colours are definitely popular, but there isn’t a strong trend for colours this season. Print and pattern is what pops and makes the statement of the season. The look is modern, feminine and confident. Wearing prints and patterns make creating an outfit a little challenging. This is why there are also many tone-on-tone options — to subdue some of the funky and possibly loud motifs. To be trendy, you must wear something with a print or pattern. There is a difference between a print and a pattern. A print is a picture of something, like a flower, graffiti or paisley. A pattern is a picture or a design that is repeated. The prints and patterns this season are bold. Layering is popular, as some ladies might want to wear only one bold piece. The silhouette is slim with a fitted waist. Print and pattern can’t be worn with fuller pieces, as they will not flatter the figure. The silhouette is narrow and slightly edgy. The look of the pattern should have an abstract design. It is meant to look funky, not geometric. Almost every pattern is in fashion. Diamonds, squares and circles are the most popular. Stripes, dots and camouflage are more mainstream. Camouflage does not have a military reference and can even be a floral or animal motif. Prints enliven blouses, skirts, pants, blazers and of course scarves. Patterns can be large or small. They can also be found in bright contrasting colours as well as complementary, toneon-tone colours. Large patterns with bright colours are bold and trendy. Small tones-on-tone patterns remain fashionable, just not as loud. Prints are sophisticated in that they look like they are handmade. Sequin and beaded designs, brocade embroidery and appliqué flowers are very popular in blouses, dresses, and on collars of blazers. Metallic gold, bronze and silver are an important element in these designs. The prints are not dull; they shine. Now that you know which patterns and prints to keep an eye out for, try to incorporate them with the fashion colours for fall. The full range of pinks to aubergine, canary yellow and electric blue are colours to look out for. Colour can be worn as matching (blue and grey, for example), contrasting (yellow and black) and tone on tone (pink and aubergine). Wear colour any way you like. This season’s fashion colours co-ordinate well with the black, brown and grey pieces carried forward from last fall season. Black is popular because it tones down some of the prints and patterns and makes vibrant colour pop. Although, fashion does require some thinking this season. I find all the new prints and patterns exciting and can’t wait to start wearing something different from the past seasons. Adieu, Mattie

A Vancouver-based jewelry line has been launched into the spotlight after catching the eye of A-list celebrities like Katie Holmes and Reese Witherspoon.

Pyrrha handcrafted jewelry, founded in 1995 by Kitsilano residents Wade Papin and Danielle Wilmore, is best known for its Talisman Collection, which features 19th century wax seals cast onto necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets. The sterling silver, gold and bronze pieces depict ancient symbols, animals and shields, all with their own significance. Papin and Wilmore, who have been married for two years, were first inspired when they came across a box of wax seals. They decided to create a collection that would stand out amongst mass-produced jewelry, even opting to recreate the cracks in the original wax for authenticity. “We designed the Talisman collection as a response to all of the generic, meaningless jewelry that is so common in our industry,” said the couple via email. “The symbolism contained

It is also carried at high-end retailer Fred Segal and has made appearances on several TV shows, including Weeds and House. Most recently, Katie Holmes donned her protection charm necklace in a Bobbi Brown makeup campaign.

Seeing Pyrrha receive such high-profile endorsements is an ego boost, said the designers. But that’s not what’s most important to them. “It means more when we know they have chosen a specific piece because it speaks to them. And when they don’t take it off for photo shoots — that’s the best compliment they could ever give us.” Pyrrha is available on the North Shore at Blue Ruby in Park Royal Shopping Centre’s south mall.

Humanity’s last stand From page 22 bomb in the last movie, but apparently OK. The Umbrella Corp. wants Alice dead. Everyone else wants to eat her, presumably. It is “humanity’s last stand” according to writer-directormodel husband Anderson. Cynics will say that it’s not too much of a stretch to go from supermodel to zombie — think skeletal frames and vacant expressions — but Jovovich has been at it for a while. She landed her first magazine cover at age 11, after having caught the attention of famed photographer Herb Ritts. She segued pretty quickly into film, however, when at age 15 she starred in Return to the Blue Lagoon, a sequel to the 1980 film starring another famous model-turned-actress, 14-year-old Brooke Shields. (Unafraid to poke fun at herself, Jovovich played high-fashionista villainness Katinka Ingabogovinanana in Ben Stiller’s Zoolander: “I suggest you and your Kmart Jaclyn Smith Collection outfit stay the hell away from Derek Zoolander!”) And so kudos to Jovovich for leap-frogging the usual model routes leading to acting fame and fortune: the pageant circuit (Halle Berry, Miss Teen America 1985; Cybill Shepherd, Miss Teenage Memphis; Michelle Pfeiffer), playboy bunny (Lauren Hutton), Bond girl (Jane Seymour, Basinger, Berry again), and lately America’s Next Top Model (newcomers Yaya DaCosta and Analeigh Tipton). And may Alice find the creeps from Umbrella Corporation ever two steps behind.

New Forms fest builds an epic narrative

QA

we’ve seen it really grow in a very natural and organic way. There’s some challenges around some of the laws and restrictions with regard to different events but that’s getting better and better all the time as well. It’s an ongoing process — we’re a young city and we’re all growing together.

and

North Shore News: What type of restrictions? Malcolm Levy: Time, capacity, assembly. There’s just a lot of different issues that were created 30 years ago before a lot of these events were happening so I think the city’s just catching up to a lot of that currently. It’s just a part of the overall ecology of the city growing.

■ New Forms Festival Sept. 13-16. Events scheduled for the Masters of Digital Media building at the Centre for Digital Media campus on 577 Great Northern Way, as well as the Waldorf Hotel and New Brighton Special at New Brighton Park.

FOUNDER Malcolm Levy has developed the New Forms Festival into a massive multi-media event over the past 12 years. NFF12 takes place this weekend with a full slate of shows and an all-day conference.

VANCOUVER’S New Forms Festival connects the dots locally as part of a worldwide international, multi-media festival movement exploring cutting-edge artistic practice and providing a platform for dialogue and artistic growth.

performance accessible to a wider audience. Founder Malcolm Levy spoke to the North Shore News about what to expect at NFF12 this weekend.

Now in its 12th year the fiercely independent enterprise makes new media art, music, film, technologybased installation and

North Shore News: The New Forms Festival has had quite a run. How did it get started back in 2000? Malcolm Levy: It was really a response to a larger group in the community who were getting into contemporary art and electronic music. It was kind of a grassroots festival the first couple of years and

then since then it has grown appropriately as the culture has caught up with it to some extent around technology, around electronic music around media art that looks at these different forms of art itself.

its kind. Mutek in Montreal is maybe a year older. For a festival that does what we do we’re actually one of the oldest in Canada which is interesting — it’s just how culture takes time to move from place to place.

North Shore News: You say as the culture has caught up. Do you mean Vancouver in particular? Malcolm Levy: Festivals like New Forms have been going back 25 to 30 years in Europe but in North America New Forms is one of the oldest of

North Shore News: You’re from Vancouver but you studied in Montreal. Malcolm Levy: Yes at McGill and that was absolutely influential with regard to some of the aesthetics the art forms, and everything else, New Forms was founded

upon. We were even doing events in Montreal that were kind of similar to the events that started New Forms. North Shore News: What types of challenges do you run into putting on events in Vancouver versus Montreal? Malcolm Levy: To be honest I love doing things in Vancouver. We have an incredible community here. We have an amazing group of curators and the only challenge has been the time it takes for works to evolve and so on but as that’s happened

North Shore News: How has the festival evolved over the years? Malcolm Levy: It’s grown a lot in size. We have a very consistent curatorial group that work on the festival. We’ve had more and more artists involved year by year and also our audiences have grown as these art forms have grown. We see an increase in people coming as well as audiences that are older still attending that attended 10 years ago. What we are seeing is a multigenerational festival in a sense. North Shore News: Did the Olympic year help at all? Malcolm Levy: Well you know I was curating CODE Live during the Olympics which was the digital part of the Cultural Olympiad. The Olympics was interesting because I think it gave the city a chance to see some of See Massive page 30

THE New Forms Festival schedule this weekend includes performances by Teebs, (left) from L.A.’s Brainfeeder collective, at the Waldorf Hotel Saturday, Sept 15 at 7 p.m. and Actress (aka Darren Cunningham) at the Centre for Digital Media on Great Northern Way tonight at midnight.

Massive line-up set for New Forms fest and FutureEverything in Manchester have all taken on this theme and other projects and partnerships have worked around it as well so it’s really interesting because everybody’s looked and dissected it in a different way.

From page 29

these events in a larger context so in that sense I think it gave the city a way of thinking about things that wasn’t necessarily there before. On the other hand there’s been some funding issues that happened post-Olympics and that’s been very hard for the cultural community. I think people felt certain impacts both positive and negative from an experience like that and I think that’s the reality of any kind of event like that. North Shore News: The Waldorf seems to have been something of a home for New Forms the last couple of years. How has the relationship worked out? Malcolm Levy: Thomas Anselmi and Danny Fazio and the group that are the directors at the Waldorf have been part of the community for a long time. It’s really fun to work with them and we have a lot of mutual respect. We decided even though our main focus is at Great Northern Way this year to still do some events at the Waldorf including the conference and a daytime event because it’s always nice to continue those links. We also partner with the Waldorf on ongoing events throughout the year. They’re working hard to create something in the city that’s very unique and when people are going to that level I think it’s important to support those things. New Forms is really about that kind of community as a whole all the curators also produce and promote different events as artists in their own right and it all helps towards a larger goal. North Shore News: This year the Waldorf is hosting the Saturday conference. Malcolm Levy: The conference we’re really excited about. We had conferences in earlier years and then the last three years it hasn’t been much of a focus. This year we felt it was important to bring the conference element back to the festival. I think people are really interested in learning about different aspects of contemporary art and what people are doing and creating as well as how festivals work and how labels work in North America and how that evolved as well as hearing from someone like Steve Goodman about the

North Shore News: As part of the collaborative process do some of the artists travel to the different festivals as well? Malcolm Levy: Absolutely. We have certain acts coming this year that have played at those other festivals. There are certain installations that have been at the other festivals. It’s not essential it’s really about everyone’s take with regard to the overall thematic and concept. And what’s actually more interesting is seeing how different people look at that and the different artists that people bring in.

NEW York City Minimal Wave DJ Veronica Vasicka, dedicated to unearthing the lost and rare sounds of analogue synthesizers, late ’70s and ’80s cold wave electronics and Italo disco, performs a set Saturday, Sept. 15 at 11:45 p.m. at the Centre for Digital Media on Great Northern Way. odd installation. He’s one of the foremost theorists in sound culture in the world having the opportunity to have these kinds of people here is just incredible and it just makes sense if we have the opportunity to help grow the dialogue in the city. North Shore News: There must be a lot involved logistically in making the festival happen. Malcolm Levy: There is a lot involved we have an amazing operations team which really helps us to get there. Michelle O’Brian who is our operations director she also works on Transmediale which is one of the main media art festivals in the world. We’re really fortunate to have someone like her there this year. North Shore News: This year’s theme is Living Labs at New Forms. What does that involve? Malcolm Levy: Living Labs is a theme that really looks at a festival in a way that’s almost

like a laboratory. There’s a number of different installations that are going to be running during the festival that are allowing people to interact and participate with the installations themselves. So within this context it’s almost like taking ideas from contemporary art and bringing them to the audience. A lot of the installations you might see are ongoing during the festival. They might need you to interact in order for the installation to work. It might be something where you watch a robot draw or you walk into a room and feel a sonic bass without actually hearing anything. They’re things that bring you in and make you think not just about the space differently but the world we live in differently. There’s a group that we are a part of with other festivals around the world called ICAS International Cities of Advanced Sound and within this group Living Labs was the major thematic programming over the past year. New Forms as well as Mutek, Club Transmediale in Berlin, TodaysArt in The Hague, Unsound in Krakow

North Shore News: In terms of NFF12 there’s a huge schedule of music acts performing during the festival including Actress from the U.K. and a French electro showcase. Malcolm Levy: Actress, Kode9, Daniel Bell, Beautiful Swimmers, Kevin McPhee, Veronica Vasicka, Legowelt, Pilooski, it’s a really exciting year for the festival. It’s our most internationally conceived lineup to date. The curators work together on a year-round basis creating this line-up. This isn’t just picked by who’s coming to town or what might be happening. It’s really a much larger thought. We start talking about who’s coming next year now and we make a lot of our decisions very early on in order to conceive of how the entire flow of the festival will work not just for us but for the audience as well. It’s really for us about building that narrative and that narrative is built around the art within the festival as well as the music. We really encourage people to come for the entire weekend so they can take in that narrative and see how it plays out for them specifically. North Shore News: Scanning the schedule that looks like an epic narrative. Malcolm Levy: We like to create a narrative that might be a bit meta in a sense but in that way you can check out and take in what you want.

Ruthie Foster inspired by her journey Roots musician opening new season at Cap U ■ Ruthie Foster at Capilano University’s NSCU Centre, Saturday, Sept. 15, 8 p.m. Tickets $35/$32.

Nanette van Doorn Contributing Writer

SINGER Ruthie Foster says her often emotional music reflects her diverse life experiences. “I draw inspiration from my, daughter, I have a 13-month-old now and it’s just daily inspiration watching the little one discover the world all over again. And from my family and friends what they go through, their stories,” she says. Foster’s sound is influenced by blues, gospel, folk, jazz and soul and she says she mixes the styles in her own music. In 2010 Foster won the Blues Music Award for Best Contemporary Female Blues Artist which is only one of her many accolades. Growing up in Gause, Texas Foster remembers singing in church from a young age and performing her first solo at 14. “I started singing on my mothers request. It was kinda one of those things where everybody in my family sung so it was just my turn to do a solo in church,” she says. “Music gave me a chance to come out of my shell and if I couldn’t say the things I wanted to say to people, I could always put them in a song or poem.” With a mother who loved gospel and a father who was more into Blues, Foster drew from many different musical influences early in life. photo supplied After finishing high school she moved to Waco and took commercial music at RUTHIE Foster recorded her eighth album, Let It Burn, earlier this year in New Orleans.

Teen star making first visit to Vancouver Cody Simpson finishing up Big Time Summer Tour on Sunday ■ Big Time Summer Tour wih Big Time Rush, Cody Simpson, Tyler Medeiros, Rachel Crow and Victoria Duffield at Rogers Arena, Sunday, Sept. 16, 7 p.m. Ticket: www.livenation.com/Big-Time-Rush-tickets/ artist/1532105.

Nicholas M. Pescod Contributing Writer

IT all began in his room three years ago with just a guitar and a video camera. The then 12year-old sang covers of his favourite artists and posted them on YouTube. Fast forward to 2012 and Australian teen pop star Cody Simpson has performed on the Today Show and been featured on magazine covers (such as J-14 and M-Magazine) all over the world. Sunday Simpson, along with Big Time Rush and Victoria Duffield will be wrapping up the Canadian portion of Big Time Rush’s Big Time Summer Tour when they take the stage at Rogers Arena. “It’s the last show on tour,” Simpson says. “I am excited to put on a great show for the fans and it’s going to be a really fun one.” While this is not the first time Simpson has been to Canada the Big Time Summer tour is producing a few firsts for him. “I’ve been here (Canada) a couple of times actually,” he says. “I’ve never been to Vancouver before though . . . It’s always good to come up here, the fans are super excited.” On Oct. 2, Simpson will be releasing his newest album titled Paradise. He says this latest disc is different from his previous efforts.

QA and

GORDON GRDINA

Tony Reif: When was Haram formed and what was the inspiration for putting together this amazing group? Also, how did you decide on the personnel? Gordon Grdina: I started this band in the fall of 2007 after spending some time at Simon Shaheen’s Arabic music retreat at Mount Holyoke College. I wanted to find a band to play all these great pieces that I’d been working on. I also wanted to put together a band that included a lot of the players in Vancouver that I love but wasn’t playing with enough. Liam, Tim and I had been playing some traditional Arabic music and I always loved Emad Armoush’s singing so we had been talking about doing a quartet together. Francois had played with my group Sangha a couple times so I figured that he would be a good fit on these tunes. JP Carter can do anything and I’ve been wanting to play more with him since we

had a short-lived project called The Throes. Chris Kelly is an amazing improviser that I’d wanted to play with in a project for a while. He had been studying the ney and already knew a lot about Arabic music so he seemed a perfect fit. Jesse had played with me in a short-lived quartet called Maqam that mixed traditional Iraqi folk tunes with improvised sections. The concept was similar but we never were able to take the music as out of the tradition as I wanted to. Jesse is also in East Van Strings where we have played some Arabic-influenced music, and he has developed his own way of delving into some of that sonic space while maintaining the texture and colour playing that he is most known for. Lastly there are Kenton and Tommy who are my main collaborators musically. I can’t say enough about them individually or as a rhythm section. They can do anything. I knew that they would be able to give the group the open space and chaos I was looking for as well as be able to groove really hard. They bring almost an Ethiopiques-vibe to this music that is real deep.

Tony Reif: Why did you name the band Haram? Gordon Grdina: Well, as I understand it haram means the forbidden. More specifically, forbidden from the point of view of a dogma about how one should live or what is acceptable. I feel that any of these hindrances and outside-imposed boundaries limit the human experience. So in some circles what we do would be considered haram. Also, it is used as an exalted term by audience members during a concert to express that what someone is playing is badass. Which I dig, the turning of the phrase on its head. As for Her Eyes Illuminate she is the muse within us all that is Tarab (http://arabicmusicband.com/articles/tarab; http://oudman586. blogspot.ca/2010/02/what-is-tarab.html). The eyes being the prism to the inner soul, something that cannot be covered — this light from within can always penetrate the darkness that is without.

Tony Reif: The band’s book focuses on popular and folk tunes from Egypt, Syria and Iraq, including pieces made famous by Oum Kalthoum and Farid al Atrache (both of whom died in the mid70s). So it’s classic though not classical repertoire, which you’re arranging for performers who are for the most part not intimately familiar with Arabic traditions (I’m excepting Emad of course, who is Syrian, and in terms of rhythms Tim Gerwing and Liam MacDonald, the band’s darbuka and riq players.) Why this choice of material, and what concessions if any do the arrangements make for your jazz/creative music frontline and rhythm section? Gordon Grdina: It’s a very simple and natural progression. I’m listening to this classic music that moves me greatly. It moves millions of people greatly. I then hear it garbled up with everything else. I can hear how a Farid al Atrache taqasim connects to a slow, conceptually developed Chris Kelly solo, or that the open free space which Oum Kalthoum sings from could be paid homage to by JP’s trumpet. Conceptually I want to honour the pieces the best way we can as an ensemble, and I feel the best way for us to do that is through our improvisation. So the arrangements are built around finding spaces that can be opened up and not trying to recreate the pieces as they’ve been performed before. It can almost be like a good DJ mashing up pieces together — things can take a massive left turn, or you can connect two seemingly disparate sounds seamlessly. As long as you can hear it before it happens everything is fine. It’s when you try and think your way through the concepts that you run into problems. Tony Reif: How would you describe the style you’ve evolved for playing oud? Were you more drawn to a particular style, tradition or performer, and did you try to synthesize different styles in the process of creating your own? Also, what kind of sound are you after, and how does amplifying the oud (either using a pickup and amp, or a mic?) affect your playing, especially in a group this size, when you’re sometimes a soloist, and sometimes something like a conductor?

MUSIC

Influences come from a wide spectrum

From page 36 Gordon Grdina: I have a hard time talking about style and synthesis because I feel like it assumes premeditated intention, a process of thinking through something in order to come to a conclusion that you have pre-supposed. The process is simple, deliberately simple. I listen to the players that hit me deeply because if the music hits me then where that music comes from is already inside me. I then try and play it as authentically as I can in order to be true to that connection. With some things this is a very fast process, for some it takes a whole lot of time. These influences were coming from all over the spectrum but I guess Hamza El Din, Simon Shaheen and Serwan Yamolky mostly influenced me. These influences naturally combine with everything else I am into as a musician, and I had to be OK with that. I can’t go back and unlearn all my musical conditioning. You can’t pretend you haven’t heard Ornette Coleman or Ed Blackwell after the fact. Things are opened up for you and everything that comes in afterwards is affected by it. So by understanding the process and realizing that you need to get

BAR & GRILL Hurricane Grill

Tony Reif: Could you maybe take a piece and walk us through the arrangement and the decisions you made along the way? I’m thinking in particular of, presumably, some kind of balance between the original performance and a 21st century world music/creative jazz perspective. Also, since I know you’re hoping to appeal to a North American Arabic audience as well as world/roots/jazz fans, what do you think an Arabic audience will find interesting about a bunch of white boys creatively trashing old-fashioned music that most of them probably don’t listen to anyway? Gordon Grdina: There are a lot of assumptions in that question! I think what you’re wanting to get at is the question of authenticity. I think that being authentic to oneself is the most important thing. By taking a music tradition completely seriously and delving into

it as honestly and with as much fervor as you can you can get somewhere that is both true to yourself and the tradition. That said, it’s subjective. Sometimes the response from people is warm and sometimes people think it’s shite. Art divides people, but I think there is something of value that this group can bring to this repertoire exactly because we haven’t grown up with it. We hear it with different ears and with different aesthetics. These pieces are well known to a lot of people and are standing the test of time. I was just hanging with a new friend who owns one of the biggest hip hop clubs in Vancouver, and he was telling me how as teenagers he and his buddies would listen to Farid al Atrache tapes blaring down Robson street in Vancouver! I don’t feel like we’re trashing old-fashioned music. I feel like we are embracing something that is beautiful and being honest about how we hear it and feel it. Honesty and the fearless expression of that honesty are interesting. At least it’s really interesting to me. It’s what I look for in art — someone expressing their honest experience. Then I can see them and therefore myself.

out of the way of it for it to develop fully, all those things have come together to create what happens now when I play. It’s not unlike developing as a human — if you try and plan to be something that you’re not life is going to be really difficult for you and you’re not going to connect with people that are real.

MUSIC

Two stages set up for Voices in the Park From page 13

photo supplied

STEVIE Nicks is joining Sarah McLachlan for the Voices in the Park concert Saturday.

What we want

Appearing on the heels of a popular and riveting speech at last week’s Democratic National Convention, Clinton is an interesting choice. “It made sense because our whole conversation had been about how music had fed him and shaped him profoundly as a child and he’s one of the most beautiful, eloquent speakers of our time. If he can speak to music education and its importance I think we might have a couple of teary eyes in the house,” says McLachlan. While she won’t reveal all the secrets of the show, she admits it is unlikely Clinton will play his saxophone. “I think the Secret Service has said no to that but you never know,” she says with a laugh. McLachlan will be performing on both the main stage and the park stage at the concert, and has plans to team up with some of the other performers. “Hopefully with everybody. I’ve basically put my name in the hat and said whoever wants me to sing with them.” She is particularly pleased about the venue. “It’s wonderful. I love my adopted city. I love Vancouver and I love Stanley Park. And I love playing outdoors, and this is for me sort of a last hurrah of summer although hopefully it will last well into October.” The venue capacity is 20,000 people, and that’s a big crowd for some of the less-experienced performers appearing at the concert. “There are a lot of the kids from the school coming to perform and also just coming to partake in the event. We are a very performance-based school. I think it’s really important for kids to get out there in front of their peers, in front of other people to play because it’s a chance for them to show what they’re doing and to have a sense of that connection that happens when you play music for other people. And the sense of pride and self-worth when you sing and play together,” says McLachlan. Recently, she was speaking to one of the students set to perform at the concert and had this advice to offer about calming her nerves: “Breathe deep. Take some big, deep breaths beforehand.” She also suggested students could imagine the audience naked but, she says, “That just makes everybody laugh.” Throughout her extensive career, McLachlan has often spoken

FOR OUR KIDS this year

about how music has helped her personally since childhood, and says she is now seeing similar results at her music school. “I feel it from the kids,” she says, adding she also hears it from the parents. She recounts one parent’s story about how her child was turned off the wrong path thanks to the school’s music intervention. “Those kinds of moments are really powerful for me,” says McLachlan. Known for her own powerful voice and powerful lyrics, McLachlan is planning on releasing a new album next year, “If I can get to it and write it,” she notes. She says she would love to talk about her new album material, but she doesn’t have anything to tell yet. Still busy with the benefit concert, she says once this event is done she can “hunker down and write.” Her 2010 album Laws of Illusion was her first studio album of new material in seven years since her successful 2003 release, Afterglow. These days, the creative process looks a little different for McLachlan, mainly because she is now mom to two young daughters. “I am unable any more to disappear for months at a time and sequester myself away in a cabin in the woods so I basically have to steal moments,” she explains. When asked if her sound has changed over the years she answers quickly: “I hope so.” “I don’t consciously sit down and say I have to change my sound, I have to do something different, but I do try to push myself and stretch myself.” This latest project was started three years ago with a concert in Ambleside Park. At that time, McLachlan said she would attempt the benefit concert every three years, but with her focus firmly on the current concert, she can’t predict if it will become a regular event. “We’ll see how this goes and see how long it takes to recover,” she says with a laugh. Voices in the Park is at Brockton Fields in Stanley Park on Saturday, Sept. 15. Gates open at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster. For more information about the show, visit www. voicesinthepark.com www.voicesinthepark.com.

No two kids are alike. That’s what makes teaching both a challenge and a joy. It’s also why each student needs – and deserves – more of our time. Teachers will be working hard to give them that time. And together with parents, we’ll be urging government to help. Years of cuts have led to overcrowded classes. Our kids desperately need smaller classes, better support for students with special needs, and more one-on-one time. Every child matters. And every year counts.

Smaller classes, better support for kids with special needs, and more one-on-one time. THAT’S WHAT OUR STUDENTS DESERVE.

Kelm distinguished by scope of her work From page 39

“There was something incredibly curious about how she made photographs and what she chose to make photographs of,” he says, describing his compulsion to her work. Parrots, playing cards, baseball caps, Wurlitzer organs, and a farm built by Marie Antoinette have all found their way in front of her lens. Kelm tends to use a large format camera and develop her photos in a darkroom. Her choice of subject matter sometimes presents a clash between the past and the present, the rational and the silly, or perhaps between the real world and a dream. “It’s very difficult to describe,” Shier says, discussing the appeal of Kelm’s work. “She’s always playing with your sense of what should be there and what is there.” Kelm’s photos tend to be bright and vivid, with clearly drawn lines that suggest a clear statement. However, a close inspection of her work reveals a tendency to subvert that statement with an element that is slightly out of place or from another time. In a photo titled “Archaeology and Literature,” she frames upright textbooks against a busy wallpaper design. The photo also includes large vegetables. Her choices are clear but the meanings of

those choices are often difficult to decipher. For Shier, that’s part of what makes Kelm so interesting. “There’s lots of little things in each image that bear repeated viewing,” he says. “They’re deceptively simple or deceptively complex, depending on how you look at them.” Shier describes the photos as: “extremely

Simpson discovered playing on YouTube From page 34

“The style of music is definitely more unique to me,” Simpson says. “I’ve really created a sound on this album that people will really understand and it’s something that I can represent.” “I am just excited to show the world what I have to offer and who I am with this album,” he adds. According to Simpson the album stays true to its name and reflects the lifestyle that he grew up with. “It represents paradise and the life that I live.” he says. “It’s a very simple lifestyle and I just wanted to create music that reflects the kind of guy that I am. There is a lot of really chill acoustic beach music on there. There are also a couple dance songs on there as well.” The Australian says he’s been influenced by musicians such as Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer. Simpson was discovered on YouTube by producer Shawn Campbell. Campbell has previously worked with big name artists such as Missy Elliot, Chris Brown and JayZ. Eventually, Campbell invited the young Australian musician and his family to his recording studio in Frederick, Maryland, and it was there that Simpson’s career began to take flight. “He was the first producer that I worked with when I came over to the United States,” Simpson says. “It was really good. We did a lot of records together.” He eventually signed with Atlantic Records in 2010. “It all happened so quickly, the next thing you know I have three million followers on Twitter,” Simpson says. “It all happened so quickly. I never really expected it to happen.” “Now that’s it happening I am working as hard as I can,” he adds. In 2010 Simpson released Waiting 4U EP and then followed that up with the release of Coast to Coast EP in 2011. Coast to Coast reached number 12 on Billboard 200 with over 24,000 copies sold. Simpson is no stranger to touring. In 2010 he participated in the Camplified Tour where he performed at various camps across the United States. In 2011 he embarked on

his first American wide tour titled Waiting 4U, with two young singers Greyson Chance and Camryn. For much of 2012 Simpson has been on the road touring. Earlier this year he wrapped up his Welcome To Paradise Tour, where he made stops in a handful of cities including, New York, Chicago, Toronto, and Montreal. Simpson says the feeling of being able to perform in front of thousands of screaming fans is hard to describe. “It’s something that you can’t really describe,” he says. “It’s very unique . . . It took me a little awhile at first to get used to, but now it’s something that I thrive in.” Later this year he will be heading to the U.K. and Europe for his next tour titled Paradise where he will be performing songs of his upcoming album. For Simpson, like many musicians nowadays, staying connected to his fans is crucial for him. “My fans are just amazing. It’s hard to describe,” he says. “I think it’s very important nowadays to keep in touch with your fans and be really personal with them.” Simpson along with his management and the The Power Play Group LLC, have just released the ‘Smitten with Cody Simpson’ app for iPhones and Androids. The application will allow users to keep track of where Simpson has been and currently is. “They can see how many miles away I am,” Simpson says. “That is so cool that my fans can see if I am close to them or far away from them.” While on tour Simpson has received plenty of gifts from fans. He recalls when he once mentioned in an interview that his favourite animal was a turtle, and sure enough while on his tour a fan gave him one. “I got a live turtle the other day,” Simpson says. “I donated it to my manager’s sister . . . she’s looking after it right now.” Before his career in music, Simpson was once a successful swimmer back in Australia. “I was actually an Australian Champion for a couple years. I used to work pretty hard on that but I’ve switched my focus to music now,” Simpson says. “When I signed my record deal, my label was telling me I had to move to L.A. It was the chance of a life time and I wanted to take the opportunity.”

deliberate but at the same time extremely unsolvable.” One of Shier’s favourite Kelm photos is a juxtaposition of a large container vessel and what appears to be a pirate ship. “You get the sense of something that doesn’t fit properly. You think of the pirate ship next to the container boat,” Shier says. “Something is not quite right.” Is the pirate ship a commentary on modern capitalism or just something that caught Kelm’s eye? Having met the photographer, Shier suggests the pictures might be underscored by laughter. “There is a precision to how she talks and presents her ideas that I think is echoed in her photography. She’s very matter-of-fact, but there’s also a twinkle to them and there’s a sense of humour in the images that I think is also a nuance of her personality,” Shier says. “All the images are not without a nudge.” Kelm has had solo shows in Switzerland, Austria, San Francisco, and Japan. Besides the clarity of her composition and an affinity for uncanny subject matter, Kelm is distinguished for the scope of her work. “There are not that many artists with a body of work that is large enough that one can choose and select a really evocative exhibition,” Shier says. “A younger artist

might be stretched to fill a whole gallery like ours.” The difficulty in filling an entire gallery is particularly acute for photographers, according to Shier. “An artist that’s doing a video installation can fill one room with one work but a photographer who’s doing fairly discreet images like Annette, she doesn’t do giant pictures, that demands a certain depth of practice and a certain experience.” Kelm is one of many modern photographers who utilize old cameras for their pictures. “Annette has no particular attachment to analog photography, and she’s been explicit with me about that. She said, ‘I don’t want you to say that I’m shooting that because I really like it, I would love to work with digital, it just happens I know how to get what I want with an analog process,” Shier says. Still, Shier sees the almost anachronistic approach as a perfect complement to Kelm’s style. “A lot of artists are drawn to a technology that’s on the verge of its disappearance,” he says. “There’s a certain freedom around it when it’s beginning to disappear and it’s able to catch something that looks backward and forward at the same time, maybe.”

RUELLE, Lorna May Jun 27, 1943 - Sep 05, 2012 Lorna passed away peacefully at home after a difficult battle with cancer. She is lovingly remembered by her husband Eugene, her children Scott (Kia),Tami (Kurt) and Carrie, her sisters Gloria (Terry) and Paula (Peter) and brother Rob (Donna) as well as many extended family members. We are forever grateful that she was able to meet & spoil her grand children Sofia and Isla. She was the proud teacher of the 3 year old group at Gateway Preschool until her retirement. She greatly enjoyed time with friends in her bridge and quilting groups. Her many works of art, from quilts to Christmas stockings, are precious gifts we will treasure. Lorna’s family would like to thank all her friends and family for their kind visits and honoring her request for only "happy talk." Many thanks to Dr. Sugar and the team of Home Care nurses.

After graduating from North Van High he joined the RCAF and went to England and North Africa as a pilot.After the War he returned to marry Bernice and raise a family, son Greg, (Kathy)daughters Judy (Colin)and Dianne(Marty). He leaves behind grandsons Dustin, Kevin and Brendan and Daryl and Colin,his lovely granddaughter Amanda as well as numerous great grandchildren. He also leaves behind brother Dave(Anne) and nieces and nephews that all held a special place in his heart. The family will have a celebration of life. Tight lines and straight shooting Dad, we love you.

FEATURED EMPLOYMENT STORE MANAGER POSITION

Sales and Marketing Director SHEPHERD - Helena May

Born June 4, 1926 Died September 5, 2012 It’s with lots of wonderful memories that we say good-bye to Helen, Mom and Nana. She was a wonderful Mom and nothing meant more to her than Les and her three girls. She always enjoyed a good joke and embraced humour in everything. Mom was in her element serving home baked cookies to all the neighbourhood kids or entertaining friends in our home. She loved a good party. She was an avid follower of politics and was always ready for a good discussion or argument, depending on your point of view. Helen served as a nurse in World War II and was proud to have served her country in the RCAF. She is predeceased by her beloved Les and leaves her three daughters, Cathie (Jim Phillipson), Jenny (Ron Hilder), and Laurie (Tom Bogue), six precious grandchildren Jenifer (Craig Barsky), Blair (Sarah), Kelly, Stuart (Kristie), Jeremy and Regan and great grandchildren Reese, Sloane, Easton, and Harlow to remember her with great affection and love. No service by request. The family will be holding a private celebration in honour of Helen. Our deepest appreciation goes to Lance of Abbott Senior Care and to Veronica, Joan, Tammy and Roswitha who worked as a team to provide Mom with great friendship, support, and comfort in her last year of life. She loved you all. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to Dr. Dana Haaf, Christine, and Jane who took exceptional care of Mom.

First, I could take it to the dealership where they will charge a not-inconsiderable sum for a mechanic to swap out fluids and filter, and perform basic maintenance checks at the same time. They will likely come forward with a few recommendations, and certainly will catch anything that’s outstanding, being (hopefully) expert in the model lineup. Option two, I could take it to one of the numerous quick-change places that have popped up in the last few years. Here the oil will be rapidly changed by a technician, usually for cheaper than a dealership can afford to do. If lucky, I might get a cursory inspection thrown in, and then off down the road without getting my hands dirty. But there is a third option. While I don’t have a garage, I am lucky enough to have a level driveway. I also have a full set of tools and a somewhat over-inflated sense of my own mechanical abilities.

SIXTY years ago (if we measure time in model years), Chevrolet introduced a legend to the world. A response to the success of European sports cars, the first Corvettes were breathtakingly beautiful — pure-white confections of chrome and fibreglass. They were also kinda slow. Powered by a 150 horsepower inline-six, the original 1953 ‘Vette had a two-speed automatic transmission and a solid rear

Auto repair no longer a matter of life or death From page 54 automotive self-reliance. Certainly it was the norm in the time of our fathers and grandfathers. In those days, a certain intimacy with your machine was expected — reliability wasn’t a no-brainer. As I drag out the floor jack and the socket set, I’m remembering one particular story related to me by the ever-irascible Malcolm Parry. I’d written a bit on the British Motorcycle Owner’s Club and their upcoming Cafe Racer display, and Mac sent me a note detailing an adventure he’d shared with his father riding a sidecar-equipped single-cylinder Ariel Westward out of the Midlands. Three-quarters of the way through struggling up some misty Welsh mountain with one of those consonant-laden Cymric names that cannot be pronounced without producing a quarter-pint of phlegm, the Ariel spluttered to a halt. Overheated by the climb, the shellac in the magneto had melted, coating the metallic innards and putting an end to sparking. The way Mac tells it, his father filled his pipe carefully as the motorcycle cooled in the high mountain air; I imagine the desolate stillness after the single-cylinder racket was particularly lonesome. Here they sat on some Godforsaken Snowdonian mount, and nothing between death by exposure but his father’s ability to get the bloody thing going again. A leather attache case was produced, filled with all the sorts of metal tools that would have been magic to a young boy. Carefully, the magneto was disassembled, the shellac was honed away and finely polished with emery cloth; pipe smoke trailing away over the high grass. At last, the work was done, the engine reassembled, the kickstarter stamped, and — success! Tell me if you understand any of this: “He . . . opened the oil-control sight-glass’s knurled ring a click or two, lifted the clutch lever (it and the front brake lever were hinged at the handlebars’ outer ends), pushed the Burman gearbox’s quadrant control into first gear, gently opened the Amal’s handlebar-mounted and coaxial air and petrol levers (there were few twist-grip throttles [those days]) and away we went. . . .” It’s all Greek to me, but not that far off my own experiences with my Dad. As I flip through the toolkit to find that — invariably — everything’s present and accounted for apart from the one dratted socket I need, I’m thinking of those early days spent in apprenticeship behind the trouble light, rooting around in drawers trying to find the alwayselusive 12 millimetre wrench, coming in to my mother with

Plasticky interior doesn’t match rest of car From page 54

THERE are some nice touches to the 427’s interior such as the suede-covered shifter and steering wheel but overall you could expect more refinement from a car that costs north of $100,000.

be wrapped around a Blue Diamond interior, with special anniversary badging and available Pearl Silver Blue stripes, including tonal striping for the blue convertible roof. Fancy. Never mind all the paintcodes, my reaction upon first casting eyes upon my tester was: holy Christmas, what an aggressive-looking machine! It’s like they clipped the wings off an F-14 Tomcat, bolted on some staggered 19inch and 20-inch alloys and turned it into a convertible. From afar, it’s a low, long and lean silhouette, be-gilled by cooling vents and with a bulging hood that seems to be struggling to contain that whopping V-8 engine. If the ’50s original is a sort of swoopy Jetsons take on a sportscar, this machine looks like it’d be perfectly at home on the deck of an aircraft carrier. Aside from the 60th anniversary badges festooning this special-edition ‘Vette, the

three digits atop the hood merit a brief explanation. Sometime after figuring out that the first slowpoke Corvettes were a great deal improved by shoe-horning a Chevy V-8 under the hood, the first 427-cubic-inch powerplants appeared. These late-’60s cars were perhaps more directly related to this modern rocketship, what with up to 430 horses (and that figure was probably underrated as well). 427 cubic inches is slightly less than seven litres, so GM has rounded things down a tad in favour of shining a spotlight on their heritage. Environment One day, Chevrolet will get the interior of their topof-the-line machine right, and then we auto writers will have nothing to complain about. Just not today. Make no mistake, if you think of the 427 convertible as a sort of speedboat for the street, then perhaps the plasticky, water-proof-style See Engine page 58

inside makes sense. If, on the other hand, you expect your $114,190 supercar to have a nicer interior than your average high-spec Kia, then you will not be a happy camper. Here’s what works inside the ‘Vette: the suedecovering on the shifter and steering wheel help deal with sweaty palms (and hoo-boy will you have those), the pedal-placement is perfect for heel-toe heroics. The heads-up display is a bit old-fashioned compared to next-gen systems like that on the Cadillac ATS, but is uncluttered and helps you

keep your eyes on the road. However, the seats are still not well-bolstered enough, especially given the force with which the ‘Vette can fling you around. The navigation system is clunky. The stereo is completely counterintuitive. The convertible top occasionally didn’t want to retract, and the manual latch for it required a bit of wiggling. But let me be very clear: any thought of these minor niggles evaporates instantly as soon as you press the starter, slot the six-speed manual in first gear and press the accelerator. Piece of advice though? Brace yourself. Performance

There are plenty of high-powered cars these days. You could argue that we’re practically choking on horsepower, what with twin-turbo motors in big, fast, German sedans like the Mercedes-Benz E63, or hugely powerful SUVs like the BMW X5M. Forget all about that. Not only does the 427 Corvette have deliciously old-school motivational power in the form of three-and-a-half Honda-Civics-worth of engine displacement, it’s also much lighter than the competition.

IN the driver’s seat the 427 demands your attention — stomp on the throttle and it’ll go squirming sideways like a horse fighting the reins.

From page 58 that carbon-fibre has slimmed the Corvette down to the point where its stonking 505 h.p. engine is hauling around so little, it has a better power-to-weight ratio than almost any other performance convertible on the market. It’s slightly ahead of drop-top performance benchmarks like the 911 Turbo S, and shames even the Ferrari California. Of course, there is little of the refinement of those big-ticket competitors, and quite frankly, thank goodness for that. We are coddled by driving aids, chaperoned by electronic nannies, wrapped up tight in a safety blanket by car manufacturers to the point where you’d feel safe lapping the fabled Nürburgring at high speed while texting your mom, getting a high score on Angry Birds and eating a large plate of spaghetti Bolognese.

The 427 ‘Vette slaps the smart-phone out of your hands from the very first, squirming sideways under throttle like a horse fighting the reins. Keep your foot in, and electronic exhaust baffles snap open, freeing the seven-litre beast to bellow: suddenly the thoroughbred is a Tyrannosaurus. Fast? The word is completely inadequate. And it’s not just a straight-line rail-rocket either: equipped with GM’s MagnaRide magnetically-controlled suspension and with a racebred chassis, the Corvette’s cornering limits are really only safely explored at the racetrack. Although, it’d be a bit incongruous there. This convertible is not really a track-special like the Z06 coupe. Instead, it’s a really fast cruiser, just as much fun to drive slowly as it is to blitz the on-ramp.

Features The Gran Sport Corvette convertible starts at just $76,600, so there’s a laundry list of options to be added in order to get to the 427’s price-tag. Preferred equipment (which includes the Navigation and BOSE audio) is a fairly whopping $12,810. Then again, those stripes are $890. Fuel-economy figures — you’re brave to enquire — are actually pretty good. Not all the time, obviously: once the instant-readout indicated a consumption-rate of 50 litres/100 kilometres! Cruise along more gently, and you’ll see somewhere in the 16-20 l/100 km range — not bad considering the enormous motor.

Carter GM Has Your Body Shop & Service Needs Covered

BBB says consumers selling cars being targeted by scams CONSUMERS who are selling vehicles are being targeted by several British Columbia-based companies that are offering questionable advertising opportunities, according to a recent warning from the Better Business Bureau. “If you are selling your vehicle through a classified ad, you may get a call from a company guaranteeing they have a buyer for your vehicle,” mainland B.C. Better Business Bureau president and CEO Danielle Primrose said in a release. “The approach makes it sound like the company has buyers waiting to buy your vehicle, but the reality is that you are purchasing online advertising that comes with no guarantees.” The BBB has received 40 complaints related to this issue in the last 12 months and 81 over the last three years, according to the release. Several companies operating out of British Columbia have F ratings with the Better Business Bureau serving mainland British Columbia. Companies telemarketing their services ask for a fee guaranteeing that the purchaser will pay more than the vehicle is advertised for or they will list your vehicle on their classified site with the promise that if the vehicle is not sold for more within 90 days, you will get your money back. Reports to the BBB show that the vehicle is not sold through the advertising and the so-

called “guarantees” are not followed through and consumers are out of pocket the funds for the advertising. These companies often require you to submit a signed company form which must also be officially notarized. They also usually require that this be done in a very specific time period after the end of the 90-day period (often 5 or 7 days). The BBB advises consumers to be wary of brokers who “guarantee” auto sales with prearranged buyers and provides the following tips: ■ Ask detailed questions such as: is the buyer specifically interested in your vehicle, rather than a range of similar vehicles? Always understand telemarketing offers and ask for additional documentation. ■ Understand the refund and cancellation policies. You may need to notarize the letter of cancellation and there is usually a specific time period for cancellation. ■ Check to see if the telemarketing company is licensed through Consumer Protection B.C. at consumerprotectionbc.ca or 1-888-564-9963. Also, review their Business Review with the Better Business Bureau at mbc.bbb.org. ■ Always read all terms and conditions thoroughly and understand that if an offer seems to be too good to be true, it often is. Consumer Protection B.C. licenses and regulates certain aspects of the telemarketing industry. For more information visit www.telemarketingrightsbc. ca.

We accept all ICBC and private insurance claims and will help guide you through the claim process. Our ICBC Certified technicians repair all makes and models of vehicles.

THE

aah-ed. Then we wondered when they’d take a tin-opener to it. Well, they did, and the result is the gorgeous R8 Spyder. With a 5.2-litre V-10 that’s essentially a Lamborghini heart-transplant, the R8 has power to spare, and it comes with a clever version of Audi’s Quattro allwheel-drive system — most of the power will always go to the rear wheels for maximum handling. Drawbacks? It’s $187,000. Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet ($170,000) There’s no denying that

the 911 is a much more practical car than the ‘Vette, with full-time all-wheel drive and rear seats that are mostly useless, but can be used in a pinch. It’s also much less of a handful, and still extremely fast. On the other hand, it’s just another 911, and with 16 different ways to buy the Porsche sportscar, you’ll have a heck of a time trying to explain to a non-enthusiast why yours cost twice as much as the base model. It’s also very buttoned down at speed — competent yes, but maybe not quite as much of a laugh.

THE Audi R8 Spyder is a powerful, gorgeous, allwheel drive supercar that comes with a price tag that’s bumping up against $200,000.

North Shore racing pioneers honoured NORTH Vancouver’s Rob Harrison and West Vancouver’s Tom Johnston will be honoured at the Greater Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society’s 12th annual induction ceremony Sept. 22.

Johnston, an engineer, went from designing and building sports cars and Formula Atlantic racers to buying cars for his own racing team. His competition racers included a Dodge Viper and Corvette C5 which are retained in a museum inside his West Vancouver home. Tom has been a member of the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame since 1998. Harrison, a drag racer, began his National Hot Rod Association racing career with a 1957 Chevrolet that he turned into a winner. He and his team then turned their attention to getting up to 700 horsepower out of a six cylinder engine to set a world speed record in the standing quarter mile of 7.98 seconds. In 2005, he built an engine that can rev 9,000 r.p.m. to launch his 1,900 pound dragster down the track from a standing start to 100 kilometers per hour in just one second. Last year he was part of a drag racing team that won the Competition Eliminator Award at the Winternational Races in Pomona, Calif. The GVMPS, which has already inducted 183 pioneers, is a group of enthusiasts from various motorsport activities whose goal is to recognize and record the accomplishments of people who have made major contributions over the past four decades. Harrison and Johnston will be inducted alongside 13 other locals who have made major contributions in the early days of motorsports in the Vancouver area. The ceremony, which is open to the public, will be held from noon to 4 p.m. in Shannon Hall at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds. The event will include light snacks and beverages with a $15 admission charge at the door.
