Pipeline protesters target MLAs
NV demo one of many across the province James Weldon firstname.lastname@example.org
MORE than 200 protesters descended on the ofﬁce of North Vancouver MLA Naomi Yamamoto Wednesday as part of a province-wide effort to derail plans for new and larger oil pipelines to B.C.’s coast. Waving placards and carrying umbrellas against the rain, the demonstrators gathered at midday outside the East 15th Street ofﬁce block to voice their opposition to Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline and plans by oil giant Kinder Morgan to expand another line on Burrard Inlet. “Over the past few years, we’ve mobilized hundreds of thousands of people against these pipeline and tanker projects,” said Calvin deGroot, speaking into a megaphone. “And our politicians aren’t listening to us.” The Capilano student — a leader of the rally who describes himself as a former NEWS photo Mike Wakeﬁeld climate change denier — said the projects come with a “huge MORE than 200 protesters gathered outside the ofﬁce of North Vancouver-Lonsdale MLA Naomi Yamamoto Wednesday to protest the risk” of oil spills and tanker proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline and the planned expansion of Kinder Morgan’s pipeline on Burrard Inlet. disasters on the coast, and that the associated approval process is an erosion of democracy. “We’ve uniﬁed in a way we haven’t seen before, and we’re only going to get louder,” he said. “We will not be silenced until the death certiﬁcates of Enbridge and Kinder Morgan are in our hands.” The event was among several dozen organized by activists Jane Seyd in both languages, and is making an effort to make sure he’s outside selected MLA ofﬁces across the province Wednesday.

Safeway site plan gets hearing 1,000 residents sign petition against proposal
Yamamoto ‘passionate’ about coast protection From page 1
Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT could be one of the most ambitious development projects in the City of North Vancouver’s recent history is going to the public for consideration.
Despite a substantial list of concerns with Onni’s proposal for two condo towers atop commercial and retail space at the Safeway site at Lonsdale Avenue and 13th Street, council voted 5-2 in favour of sending the project for public feedback on Monday night. The public will be asked for input on the proposed 344-unit towers measuring 180 feet and 240 feet (73 metres) in height, at a special public hearing on Nov. 19. The vote followed a delegation from three neighbours who urged council to vote against the motion on the grounds that the residential buildings were too tall, too dense and would create havoc for cars and pedestrians on the otherwise quiet 14th Street. Slightly more than 1,000 residents have signed a petition rejecting a development that graphic Onni would “devastate” the quiet street. ONNI’S representation of what the redeveloped Safeway site at Lonsdale Avenue and 13th Street will look like In exchange for the increase if approved by City of North Vancouver council. A public hearing is set for Nov. 19. in density allowed for the site, Clark also lobbed a challenge for Coun. Linda Buchanan and Mayor Darrell Onni is offering 10,000 square feet of non-proﬁt housing, childcare space, a $1million contribution to the city’s amenity fund, a connection to the Lonsdale Energy Mussatto to avoid the discussion on the grounds that they accepted sizable Corporation, infrastructure upgrades to the surrounding streets and trafﬁc signals, campaign donations from Onni’s parent company during the 2011 election. While it wouldn’t amount to a legal conﬂict of interest, Clark said, “morally and ethically, $250,000 in public art, green building standards and extra commercial space. Coun. Guy Heywood offered the idea of deferring the vote until after council it stinks.” Bookham agreed on the density issue, and added that it wasn’t clear the city had a workshop on its density bonusing policy, scheduled for the end of this month. “This project is probably the most important one we in the little City of North needed all the amenities Onni had bargained with for density bonusing. But, the project is not as dense as some other ones council has approved, Coun. Vancouver are going to deal with, so if we end up taking more time to get it right, Craig Keating noted, including the Vista towers. And the city is in need of the perks it’s not time wasted,” he said. Onni is offering in exchange for density, he said. Heywood’s suggestion found no takers, however. Public response to Onni’s proposal has trended positive since the original plan Couns. Rod Clark and Pam Bookham voted against the motion, saying that for three towers was scrapped more than a year ago, Mussatto noted before the after two years the proposal still too many problems. “I don’t believe a workable trafﬁc plan with respect to the project is in place as vote. “This project has been in the works for over two years. It’s been in the public eye yet, and without that, it’s premature to go to a public hearing,” Clark said. The density was “far too high,” he added, noting that he would prefer to see for much of that. It’s been in our design panels a number of times. It’s had public more open space, similar to the plaza next to city hall. The proposal, as is, would and town hall meetings and been to city council a number of times. I think it’s time we move on — get going with this and make some decisions,” he said. look like a “concrete bunker block” he said. As for the lingering concerns about trafﬁc, Mussatto said he was conﬁdent those “I feel very, very sorry for the people who live on 14th Street, or anywhere near could be resolved through the public hearing. it,” he said.
boisterous crowd, which ranged in age from teens to retirees. The event featured several other speeches, followed by chants and a group photo op. It wrapped up within the hour. Yamamoto was out of town on business at the time of the demonstration. Reached by phone Thursday, she said she shared “a lot of common ground” with the protesters. “I am passionate about protecting our coast and our land from spills,” said Yamamoto. “Tourists don’t come to British Columbia to see our cities; they come to see our coastline and our rivers and our pristine mountains. . . . It’s one of our most important assets.” She would only support the proposed projects “in principle” if they met the ﬁve conditions her government laid out in July: That the environmental review process be completed; that “world-leading” prevention and spill response systems be put in place on land and on the coast; that legal requirements related to Aboriginal treaties be addressed; and that B.C. receive “a fair share of the ﬁscal and economic beneﬁts.” With regard to the protesters’ complaint that the pipelines would expand fossil fuel use, Yamamoto reserved judgment. “Whether or not we believe in fossil fuels as a bad thing, I leave to individuals,” she said. If its applications are approved, Enbridge plans to build a 1,200-kilometre pipeline to carry petroleum from the tar sands just north of Edmonton to a new terminal in Kitimat, where it will be loaded onto large tankers for shipment to Asia and the United States. In a parallel but unrelated effort, Kinder Morgan is aiming to expand the capacity of its 60-year-old TransMountain pipeline — which carries oil from Alberta to the Burrard Inlet — from 300,000 barrels a day to 750,000 by 2017.
Chinese languages big in W. Van WV Lambo From page 1
likely to be spoken on the North Shore other than English. Other prominent languages spoken include Mandarin, Cantonese and other Chinese languages. Together, more than 7,400 people on the North Shore list those as their ﬁrst language. More than 3,000 people on the North Shore list Korean as their ﬁrst language. Tagalog, the language of a growing number of immigrants from the Philippines, is the ﬁrst language of more than 2,700 people. While English is still spoken as a ﬁrst language by the majority, more than 30 per cent of the population in both West Vancouver and the City of North Vancouver now list a language other than English or French as their mother tongue. A smaller percentage of them — between 16 and 17 per cent — say their ﬁrst language is the one most often spoken at home. In West Vancouver, more people — 3,345 — listed Chinese languages as their mother
tongue than any other non-ofﬁcial language. Farsi and Korean were the second and third most prevalent languages. Farsi is spoken by 4,235 people in the District of North Vancouver, while 2,850 people speak Chinese languages. In the City of North Vancouver, 3,390 people list Farsi as a ﬁrst language, while Tagalog is a mother tongue to 1,465 people and 1,175 people speak Korean. City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto said the growing diversity is something civic leaders have to respond to if they want to engage their citizens. “It is evolving,” he said, noting the library has a collection of books in other languages. As the second generation of Iranians to immigrate to Canada, Mirlohi said he suspects he’s had an easier time ﬁtting in to Canadian society than older generations did. Canadians, too, are more used to living in a place made up of people from elsewhere, he said. “They understand our multicultural issues.”
owner can’t afford ﬁne
A West Vancouver Lamborghini owner left police in Richmond dumbfounded last week when he complained the ticket they issued him for failing to insure his ultra-high-end sports car was too expensive.
A Richmond RCMP ofﬁcer issues a ticket for no insurance to the 22-year-old West Van owner of a Lamborghini.
An RCMP ofﬁcer pulled the 22-year-old over just before 6 p.m. Oct. 17 after noticing a problem with his licence plate, according to police. On talking to the driver, the Mountie quickly established the man’s 2012 Lamborghini Aventador — which retails for as much as $400,000 — was uninsured, and handed him
a ticket before having the car towed. The man reportedly didn’t think that was fair. “When the ofﬁcer gave the driver a $568 ﬁne for not having insurance,” said Cpl. Robert McDonald, spokesman for the RCMP’s Lower Mainland District Trafﬁc Services, “the driver actually complained the ﬁne was too much money.” — James Weldon

Condo approval reignites city rental debate E. Third condo dev. gains 2 ﬂoors by guaranteeing market rentals
Brent Richter email@example.com
THERE’S a new seven-seven storey mixed-use condo building coming to the Lower Lonsdale neighbourhood. City of North Vancouver council moved ahead with rezoning 127 and 133 East Third St. Monday night after a public hearing that saw mostly positive comments from nearby business owners, and residents. Once completed, the building by Kamcon Construction, will house four commercial storefronts at street level, 18 market rental housing units and 43 condos, ranging from bachelors under 400 square feet, to two-bedroom units. The buildings on the site now only have vacant commercial space. The proposed small tower is in keeping with the city’s ofﬁcial community plan for the area, but needs rezoning and council’s permission to build higher than 50 feet. In exchange for two extra ﬂoors and another 19 feet of height, the developer is offering the city $100,000 for the community amenity fund, $25,000 worth of public art, streetscape improvements on Third Street, a new pedestrian/cyclist crossing along with 18 units of market rental housing. But the proposal revived an oft-repeated debate in the city’s council chamber: Whether including market rental housing should be enough of an incentive for council to allow developers more height or density for a property. Coun. Guy Heywood argued that using the city’s densitybonusing leverage to shore up rental stock amounts to meddling with the free market, and doesn’t necessarily produce rental units that are cheap to live in. Every time the city accepts rental housing in lieu of more money for community amenities, it is a lost opportunity, added Heywood. “We are basically wasting taxpayers’ money on trying to affect market dynamics and missing an opportunity to build the public infrastructure for which we do not have enough money,” he said, referring to North Shore Neighbourhood House and
Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre. But, council agreed it was a worthwhile tradeoff, especially when Kamcon could have simply taken out a permit for a ﬁvestorey building without any consultation or beneﬁt for the community with the existing zoning. And council has its defenders of the city’s policy to encourage market-rental housing. “What housing activists and specialists have told us again and again is that by adding new market rental, you cause the price of older market rental to go down — you contribute to the net affordability of rental housing,” said Coun. Craig Keating. “In this respect, this project meets that goal. And it’s a goal, by the way, that’s in our ofﬁcial community plan.” The need, or lack thereof, for rental housing came up during the public hearing. Don Peters, co-chair of North Shore Community Resources’ housing action committee, spoke in favour of the project. “This one did catch our attention because it signiﬁcantly adds to the rental stock in North Vancouver, and in particular, in that neighbourhood. “I do know you face a number of challenges regarding height, and density, and parking and trafﬁc in your deliberations. . . .
The bottom line for me as a member of this community is it does add what we desperately in need of: more rental space.” Nearby resident Meghan Mathieson, said she would support the project if it didn’t include more height for the sake of getting market rental units in the building. “I’d like to challenge the assumption that there’s a need for additional market rental units,” she said, noting that the neighbourhood has a low average income, a low proportion of homes owned by residents, and a high proportion of people moving in and out. “I do believe there is a need for affordable rental housing, but I do not believe the term ‘market rental’ indicates affordable,” said Mathieson. At least 16 neighbours wrote to council, urging them to turn the proposal down on account of how the new building would spoil views and block sunlight. To those whose views would be affected, Mayor Darrell Mussatto reminded the gallery that no matter what a real estate agent says, no one ever owns the view they see from their homes. He too lost his sightlines of the North Shore mountains when two duplexes were built behind his home, but the neighbourhood has been better for it, he said.

Numbers game T
HE level of participation in pipeline protests across the province this week suggest Alberta Premier Alison Redford will have a ﬁght on her hands from British Columbians if she continues to suggest that the B.C. coastline belongs to Canada. Redford told CBC’s Peter Mansbridge this week, “A Canadian coast is a coast that should be available for all Canadians to make use of and to export their product.” That statement doubtless played better in Alberta than B.C., but by the same line of argument the tar sands north of Edmonton belong to Canada and all Canadians should share in the tax revenue from it. Perhaps Premier Christy Clark should try a similar argument in support of her pursuit of a “fair share” of the economic beneﬁt
from the Northern Gateway pipeline. But in the minds of average British Columbians, tax revenue or economic beneﬁt to Canada clearly does not justify the environmental risks posed by the proposed pipeline, its Enbridge counterpart and their oil tankers. This week’s protests drew 3,000 to the lawn of the provincial legislature and more than 200 to the sidewalk outside MLA Naomi Yamamoto’s North Vancouver ofﬁce. There were 200 in Whistler and 500 in Davis Bay near Sechelt. The province-wide reach of the 59 protests suggests this is a Mother Earth and Apple Pie issue that unites young and old. As such, the pipelines issue will play a part in the 2013 provincial election. The NDP has already said ‘No’ to Northern Gateway. The Liberals will be hard pressed not to as well.
A grandiose WV plan – with no parking
IF West Vancouver council buys the Grosvenor-driven “revitalization” of Ambleside, expect more public hostility.
Council will. The ﬁx is in. No shrewd mammoth developer like Grosvenor wades into small ponds like West Vancouver without ﬁrst calculating its exact depth — and which small-town politicians and bureaucrats will help lace up their boots to cross it. (If previous mayor Pam Goldsmith-Jones comes to mind, OK.) By the time the mere public learns of it — in another case, think of council’s closed-meeting approval of the Pattison “bus shelters” — it’s a done deal. Grosvenor’s uninformative information storefront on Marine Drive was a joke without a punch line, smiling young women without facts, PR without substance. That passes for “public consultation.” Town hall cunningly wrapped up its war of upmarket
This Just In
Trevor Lautens condo-dwellers and high-end shoppers against Ambleside’s more modest and especially older citizens in a big pink bow of multiple projects. Bafﬂement by bulk. Anchored by Grosvenor’s already strongly denounced, guidelines-jumping seven- and eight-storey towers at West Van’s 13th Street “gateway,” those projects council unveiled last week will cumulatively drive out human-scale Ambleside. (The north side of the block will be next — it won’t do for the nouveau riche on the eighth ﬂoor.)
Let me be kind, a momentary lapse, I promise: West Van has unusual problems, daunting for any council. One, God in her wisdom created little actual WV soil, a thin strip between seaside and mountainside. Obviously she favours ox-stunning real estate prices. Two, for 80-odd years it’s had one overarching — but, to be fair, careful and conscientious — superdeveloper, British Properties. Bigger than council, arguably. The third huge factor is Park Royal Shopping Centre. You can almost hear the whoosh as ever-expanding Park Royal sucks business activity from Ambleside’s Marine Drive and beyond. With its almost limitless parking, the centre has relentlessly waved in trafﬁc from an Ambleside where ﬁnding street parking has become hard labour. Above all, more parking is ignored in the multiple-faceted plan, the one thing that could really goose Ambleside (and Dundarave) retailing. But it fashionably peddles more bicycle trailways for recreational cycling.
A few other considerations: Converting “newlyacquired properties at 1468 and 1472 Argyle Avenue into ocean-front restaurants.” Putting aside that West Vancouver has no ocean — to ﬁnd it, turn west, sail for 90 minutes, and cross a large island — will Carmelo’s, Chez Michel and other excellent restaurants warmly welcome nearby competitors leasing waterfront from town hall? Keep the very few, colourful Argyle houses as houses. They add variety to the beach and after-dark safety. Food carts/trucks: See above re competition. Anyway, Feastro the Rolling Bistro and the like may ﬁt downtown Vancouver’s demographics. But in West Van? Your great-aunt munching shrimp burgers or halibut tacos on the street? Yeah, right. “A business case for a new Arts Centre on the 1600-block of Bellevue.” Why? The Ferry Building, Silk Purse, library, and many private galleries aren’t enough? “Upgrades to the Silk Purse Gallery to create a more
usable outdoor space.” That’s puzzling. As well as small art shows, the Silk Purse — in decline since well-connected Cheryl Karchut’s leadership, and Victoria’s cuts to the arts — holds music concerts. Upgrades? Usable outdoor space? Explain. “More closures of Argyle Avenue to vehicle trafﬁc for other opportunities.” Meaning? This is West Van’s popular promenade, also offering scarce parking space for the area, especially for the frail attending the Silk Purse, the Ferry Building, the Harmony Arts Festival. Vehicles and strolling families coexist comfortably. It’s a solution for which the town hall’s meddling mandarins seek a problem. Leave it alone, council. “The Streetscape Project, which aims to improve sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, street furniture, bike connections and other open space elements in Ambleside Village.” Translation: Gimmicks to lure unwary tourists beyond Park Royal to a North Carmel-by-theSea. Someone even suggested
cobbled roadways. Warning: Never trust anyone who uses the word “streetscape.” Make your own list. ••• WV council unanimously passed third reading of leaky Westshore Place’s rezoning application. Town hall acknowledged Westshore sought to resolve “life safety and building envelope issues resulting from unauthorized balcony enclosures . . . weather walls . . . were removed most often without building permits.” Like, illegally. Council-watcher George Pajari was in full ﬂight: “Unbelievably . . . you’re recommending no penalty for the bylaw infractions (or) the building code violations, and, oh, by the way, we’ll give you increased property value to the tune of $30,000-$50,000 per unit . . . with no community beneﬁt.” Yes, for problems “caused by the strata owners themselves.” Great example for others. Westshore’s advocate: Former mayor Mark Sager. Smart lawyer, Mr. Sager. firstname.lastname@example.org

Leaders diss democracy by ducking debate
DO you know when the B.C. legislature or Parliament is actually in session? Do you follow the goings-on in those institutions? I suspect most British Columbians (and fellow Canadians) fall into the “I don’t care” category. After all, the number of people involved in our political system (involved to the point of actually voting) has been steadily declining for years, so why should anyone expect a larger majority of citizens to pay attention to what their elected representatives are up to? That’s too bad, really. Ignoring our political institutions is risky, as it opens the door to everything from faulty public policies and bad laws to outright corruption. But what may be feeding this public disengagement with politics is the actions (or non-actions) of the politicians themselves. Three political leaders in particular have, in recent weeks, contributed to this growing malaise. They are:
View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey
Prime Minister Stephen Harper, outgoing Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty and B.C. Premier Christy Clark. The prime minister especially has whittled away the respect and the power of an elected body. His distaste for parliamentary process is one thing —he’s not the only PM or premier to arrive at that view after being in power for a while — but his insistence on “bundling” all kinds of laws into a single omnibus bill goes well beyond treating Parliament like a nuisance that must be tolerated.
Not allowing adequate debate and scrutiny of legislation that can affect so many people in so many ways is not only bad public policy, but it’s anti-democratic. Our MPs are elected not just to represent the interests of their constituents, but also to keep in check the power of the state. By effectively bypassing much of the role of the MPs, the Harper government has chose to snub the historic role of an elected body. McGuinty’s actions are no less questionable. He is presiding over a minority government, yet has chosen to
precedent in this province. No party is innocent of shutting down the house when it politically suits them, but it doesn’t make it right. Clark exacerbated her snub of the house by calling the place “sick” and suggested nothing good comes from it, reinforcing in some peoples’ minds no doubt that the legislature is useless. In all three instances, our leaders have demonstrated an attitude that says our elected representatives and the place they do the peoples’ business are not worthy of their respect or time. I can’t help but wonder
use his power to prorogue, or end, the legislative session. His motivation seems suspect. His government is becoming enmeshed in a potentially messy if not scandalous controversy over the cancellation of some power plants in the province, and getting rid of the legislature is a neat way to shield himself and his colleagues from some potentially embarrassing questions on an almost daily basis. All of which brings us to Clark. Her cancellation of the legislature’s fall sitting is not extraordinary in terms of
whether their actions push even more people into the “I don’t care” category when it comes to their take on politics.

Lynn Valley’s village atmosphere at risk
Dear Editor: I write regarding Mayor Richard Walton’s Oct. 17 letter to the editor, DNV Welcomes Lynn Valley Input. My husband and I moved to the North Shore, Upper Lynn Valley, 35 years ago and we have loved living here ever since. We have lived on Coleman Street, McNair Drive, Kilmer Road and now on Dempsey Road. We are, however, astounded by the rapid changes in our neighbourhood. I totally understand that more people have to be able to move to the Lynn Valley area, but how many single dwellings have to be sacriﬁced for multi-unit construction? The village atmosphere in Lynn Valley, which we have always enjoyed, is fast disappearing. Now, the new plans to tear down half of our local mall for three or possibly more highrise developments
will, in my view, totally spoil the character that makes Lynn Valley so special. District of North Vancouver council spent so much — of our — money to build the library with the village square with the aim of preserving this unique village identity. Now, they want to give in to big developers to allow for highrises. With all the new high-density housing in Lynn Valley, trafﬁc and parking are already a problem. The proposed housing is only going to make matters worse. Our area just cannot sustain the inﬂux of people and cars that this housing will bring. We need a new mall, not additional housing. I sincerely hope our opinion will be considered when the matter of the highrise construction comes up in council meetings. Tina and Ronald Kraal North Vancouver
Geography counts in cabinet choices
From page 7
Vancouver city councillor. If Meggs had won, he would have been a lock to get into cabinet. He worked alongside party leader Adrian Dix in the premier’s ofﬁce in the 1990s, so the two have a natural alliance. I’m less sure about where Heyman stands with Dix, however. The NDP has not shifted noticeably green since he became leader, although environmental activists such as Heyman have pushed for greener policies. Geography may also play a role in Heyman’s chances of getting to the cabinet table. Dix represents a Vancouver riding, and
so does MLA Shane Simpson, another likely cabinet minister. Two other Vancouver MLAs — Spencer Chandra-Herbert and Mable Elmore — are well liked by Dix, and if one of them makes it to cabinet that would mean Heyman would be the fourth minister from Vancouver, which may be one too many. Of course, he’s going to have to win the seat ﬁrst. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid holds the riding for the B.C. Liberals right now. Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

WEST VANCOUVER MEMORIAL LIBRARY FOUNDATION FUNDRAISER
A Passport to Spain ■ A Passport to Spain, a West Vancouver Memorial Library Foundation fundraiser, Friday, Nov. 2, 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Festivities include music, ﬂamenco dancing, art, fashion, ﬁne wine, regional cuisine, Spanish coffee, and silent and live auctions. Tickets: $125, available at the library, or by phoning 604-925-7425. Info: www.passporttoart.ca.

NICOLE Brown hopes an upcoming fundraising evening whisks guests away to Spain, offering a taste of the nation’s succulent cuisine, ﬁne wines and sensual music and dance.
No passports are needed, as the event venue, the West Vancouver Memorial Library, will be transformed, offering a feast for the senses as a means of raising funds for the library’s foundation in support of programs, services and enhancements. Set for Friday, Nov. 2, the fundraiser, dubbed A Passport to Spain, is the foundation’s second annual internationally themed event. Last year’s had Italy as its focus. “It’s going to be a really fun night, I think people are in for a treat,” says Brown, the event chairwoman and past-chairwoman of the West Vancouver Memorial Library Foundation. A Passport to Spain also marks the culmination of an inaugural month-long art auction fundraiser, entitled A Passport to Art.

FLAMENCO dancer Karen Pitkethly will participate in A Passport to Spain on Friday, Nov. 2 at West Vancouver Memorial Library. “There’s some really great pieces at fantastic prices,” says Brown, adding people who love libraries and ﬁne art will enjoy the opportunity the silent auction provides. For 13 years, the West Vancouver Memorial Library Foundation presented the popular Mallet Masters Croquet Tournament as its annual fundraiser. Interested in a change of pace, as well as to present an event that wasn’t weather-dependent, last year, representatives decided to move in a different direction. “We thought, ‘What could we do that would be more connected, A, to the library, and, B, be
something a little simpler to host from our end but also still have the kind of glamour and unique theme and something that would be a big draw for people to attend,’” says Brown. They came up with the idea of hosting an annual international night, featuring a different country each year, launching the event with A Passport to Italy in 2011. “It was a huge success. Honestly, Italian food and wine? Not a tough sell,” says Brown. This year, organizers chose Spain. “Again, ﬂamenco and tapas and cava — it lends itself to a party,” says Brown. A Passport to Spain, which gets underway at 7:30 p.m., boasts music, dancing by Karen Flamenco, a fashion show hosted by Park Royal Shopping Centre featuring local media personalities as models, ﬁne wine, regional cuisine, a Spanish coffee bar, and, silent and live auctions. CBC’s Fred Lee and Kathryn Gretsinger will serve as MCs. Guests will also get once last chance to view and bid on the works currently up for auction as part of A Passport to Art. Artists who donated pieces include Miriam Aroeste, Alan Beaton, Cameron Bird, Bobbie Burgers, Lil Chrazn, Cori Creed, Brian Eby, Maria Josenhans, Richard Roblin, Gordon Smith, Luis Sopena, Shirley Claire Williams and Paul Ygartua. “We’re so fortunate to have them contribute pieces because they get so much buzz going in the community,” says Brown.

The 1968 presidential election was looming and Nixon was hoping to rebound from a close and controversial loss to the more TV camera-friendly John F. Kennedy eight years earlier. The producer was Roger Ailes, who went on to advise Republican presidents Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. He also founded Fox News, known for big conservative

personalities and small factchecking departments. In that ﬁrst meeting, the seeds were sown for both a professional relationship and a right-wing ascendancy that continues 45 years later with Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Canada and a swell of rightwing candidates in Western Europe, according to political pundit Warren Kinsella. “Those two guys ﬁgured out how to transform blue-collar Democrats into blue-collar Republicans,” Kinsella says. “Conservatives, whether you like them or not, you have to give them credit. They’re just getting increasingly better at winning elections for a whole number of reasons.” Kinsella, who advised Jean Chretien during the former Liberal leader’s decade as Prime Minister, looks at how to undo conservative dominance in his new book Fight the Right: A Manual for Surviving the Coming Conservative photo supplied Apocalypse. The former punk bassist WARREN Kinsella’s new book Fight the Right: A Manual for Surviving the Coming notes the way Nixon and Ailes Conservative Apocalypse investigates our current political era with the global rise harnessed a primarily southern of the Conservative Right to power positions while the Left rapidly loses ground. backlash to the civil rights Conservative tactics. movement, the feminist movement, and the anti-war struggle to In the 2011 election, the Liberals garnered 34 out of 308 seats, create a new base of support. ﬁnishing a distant third behind the NDP and Conservatives. “He transformed the perceptions that working class Americans Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff was the subject of frequent had of those three things and started to move them into the attack ads that painted him as an intellectual elitist who lacked conservative category,” he says. “Harper has done a lot of the same patriotism.

Obama’s mistakes may cost him U.S. election of ordinary folks and talking just repeatedly about values. That’s one of the main reasons why he won that debate,” Kinsella says. Unsurprisingly for a man who wrote the book Kicking Ass in Canadian Politics, Kinsella advocates aggression, and if Obama loses it can be chalked up to an unwillingness to exploit Romney’s refusal to disclose his tax records. “They let him get away with it,” Kinsella says in disbelief. “He still hasn’t disclosed what any other presidential candidate in history has routinely released. Those are the kind of mistakes out of which defeats are made.” Kinsella was also critical of Obama for not harnessing the energy of the Occupy movement. “They have the message there: the one per cent versus the 99 per cent. Nobody would ever seriously consider Romney to have been anything other than the one per cent of the one per cent. He comes from the most privileged and the most well-off.” Left-wing parties have a harmful reluctance to embrace cultural tides, according to Kinsella. “I think conservatives tend to be much more adept at embracing and absorbing populist movements,” he says, discussing the Tea Party’s integration into the Republicans and the Canadian Alliance melding with the Progressive Conservative Party. “I think it may be kind of a sociological thing where liberals have a tendency to have an antipathy or a suspicion about populism, and I guess what I’m saying is you shouldn’t.” As for the Liberals and the NDP, Kinsella
From page 16
Kinsella’s book is largely about controlling the frame, and the way political discussions can be weighted by establishing the dominant vocabulary. At the moment, Kinsella believes Conservatives are winning the linguistic battle. “Something like ‘oil drilling’ becomes ‘energy exploration,’ he writes. “It’s not government ‘outsourcing’ — instead, it’s government ‘innovation.’ It’s never ‘undocumented workers,’ naturally — it’s ‘illegal’ aliens or refugees.” Finding a dynamic symbol can be the key to changing a perception, according to Kinsella. The author and former lawyer writes at length about the growing viewpoint in the early 1990s that Jean Chretien was old and enfeebled, and no match for the youth and energy of Conservative Kim Campbell. And then Chretien was photographed waterskiing. “That’s when ‘yesterday’s man’ went out the window. And it turned things around: my so-called health problem disappeared,” Chretien says in the book. “My words could not have convinced the press . . . my actions had to convince the press.” Controlling language and speaking about values win elections, according to Kinsella, discussing the ﬁrst debate between incumbent Barack Obama and conservative challenger Mitt Romney for the U.S. presidency. “The president came across sounding a little like a university professor, and he was just iterating lists of statistics and factoids and it was Romney who was speaking most effectively in the language

Creating in the immediacy of the moment Luciana Souza recorded two new albums live off the ﬂoor Jen St. Denis firstname.lastname@example.org
THERE has hardly been a moment in Luciana Souza’s life when she hasn’t been listening to, making, or thinking about music. “Music was all I knew,” says Souza, a Grammy Award-winning vocalist. “It became an inevitable choice.” The Brazilian-born singer and songwriter performs at Capilano University tonight with ‘A’ Band, Capilano’s big band, and NiteCap, a vocal ensemble. Souza grew up in Sao Paulo in a household ﬁlled with art and music. Her mother was a “writer, poet, thinker and political strategist,” while her father played the guitar and ran a music studio and “jingle house.” Musicians were constantly visiting the family’s home, and she began her professional musical career recording jingles at the age of three. “Mom always reading or writing, dad playing music,” she says of her upbringing. “It was pretty amazing, looking back.” Souza moved to the United States in 1985 to study music, eventually earning a masters in jazz composition, and released her ﬁrst album in 1998. She now lives in Los Angeles with her young son and her husband, Larry Klein, the well-known producer of many of Joni Mitchell’s albums. In August, Souza released two records: Duos III, the ﬁnal release in her trilogy of Brazilian jazz, and The Book of Chet, an exploration of Chet Baker standards. She recorded both in the space of two months. The effervescence of Duos III contrasts sharply with the slow, introspective songs in The Book of Chet, but Souza says the two albums simply reﬂect the different sides of day-to-day experience. “I think I exist in these two worlds all the time,” says the singer. “I don’t think there’s a day that goes by where there isn’t something dark, or something extremely light.”

Miles’ grandfather named to the CFL Hall of Fame
From page 21
Kayfabe, was also nominated for the Polaris prize back in 2006. Pemberton’s father, Teddy Pemberton, was a college DJ at CJSR-FM in Edmonton and he raised his son on a wide range of music with Kurt Cobain, Nas, Organized Konfusion and Freestyle Fellowship all part of his musical education growing up. “With my dad being a DJ, I kind of grew up in a library full of music,” he says. Pemberton’s grandfather, Rollie Miles played in the CFL for 10 seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos. The three-time Grey Cup winner (who played on offence, defence and special teams back in the day) is a member of both the CFL Hall of Fame and the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame. In 2006 he was also voted one of the CFL’s Top 50 players of the league’s modern era by Canadian sports network TSN. “A lot of people might not know but my grandfather is a CFL Hall of Famer,” Pemberton says. “It’s cool that I am named after him.” Working on Hope in Dirt City, Pemberton wanted to create a set of tracks unique in their own way. “I wanted to do something more organic and have more of a natural feel to it. Everything I had done had been highly electronic up until
then,” he says. “I was very inﬂuenced by a mix of ’60s and ’70’s classic pop music. Particularly the early ’80s, and late ’70s disco music I would say — anything from Grace Jones to the Talking Heads. I wanted to have a mix of all these ideas and inﬂuences. It’s a mix of all the kinds of music I am into.” Cadence Weapon is currently in the middle of a month-long North American tour including shows in Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit, Peg, Rapskatoon and Edmo. “I am excited to be touring the album now,” he says. “I am really looking forward to sharing my music with people,” he adds. Throughout the tour Pemberton and his DJ continually evaluate each performance. “From show to show the transitions between songs will change and the structure will change,” he says. “It’s a very free ﬂowing organic thing. It keeps it fresh for us.” Pemberton says there are downsides to doing so many cities in such a short period of time. “The tough thing is travelling for so long. It can becoming numbing in a way,” he says. “The positives way outweigh the negatives though.” Some people drive for hours to see him perform live. Armed with his songs Cadence Weapon’s job is to make sure they see a show. For more information visit www. cadenceweaponmusic.com. Follow him on twitter @CadenceWeapon.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE
Designs are elegant and edgy
Jen St. Denis email@example.com
EAST Vancouver designer Lincoln Heller has thrown everything but the kitchen sink at his handmade briefcases, handbags and totes.
TWEET CHIC Follow us on Twitter @NSNLook.
His fabrication process begins with dropping hubcaps, bicycle spokes and tractor parts on top of wet leather to make unusual patterns in the ﬁnished piece. By turn, he doesn’t care if his customers beat the hell out of his bags. “When you buy a bag and you walk away with it, and someone else buys a very similar bag, at the end of the year, those two bags look different . . . the personality of the person really is absorbed into the bag,” says Heller, owner of Fiveleft Leather. “One person goes outdoors a lot, one person sweats a lot, one person beats on their bag.” Heller, 38, created his business in 2005 and has been a ﬁxture at events like the Eastside Culture Crawl and Circle Craft. Now he and his new business manager, Carol Hyslop of North Vancouver’s Favourite Gifts, say they’re ready to bring the business to the next level. They’ll be celebrating this new stage of Fiveleft at a Nov. 3 party called A Night of a Thousand Wonders. Partygoers will have the chance to bid on Heller’s 1,000th bag. “He pulled out all the tricks, all of his trade secrets,” Hyslop says of the bag, which the duo are keeping under wraps until the big night (teaser pictures can be viewed on Fiveleft’s Facebook page). “It is completely handstitched and there’s a lot of extra-special love going into this bag.” Fiveleft is a labour of love for Heller, who grew up in rural Washington and came to Vancouver in 1995 to study photography at Emily Carr
University of Art and Design. To put himself through art school, he worked at a logging camp in Alaska, stripping branches off logs with a chainsaw. That’s where the leather bug hit him. “I was working on a remote island with no power or anything for seven months at a time,” explains Heller. “When the guys would leave the camp, they’d throw their boots away.” He started cutting the leather off the boots and making tool pouches. Back in the city, he picked up some remnant pieces from Tandy Leather and started experimenting. Heller says he’s not afraid of using a sewing machine — he has his mom to thank for that, who got him and his brother and sister to sew some of their own clothes each summer. But he doesn’t have any formal training in fashion design or pattern making. “Me and fabric and soft, ﬂoppy garment leather don’t get along well,” says Heller. “That’s not the way my brain designs things.” Instead, Heller’s bags are made of stiff, thick leather, a material he likens to paper, plastic or metal, rather than cloth. “You can fold it over and crease it, and you don’t use scissors to cut it — you use a ruler and a knife,” says Heller. “It’s very architectural.” Heller and his studio assistants start with pieces of wet, undyed leather. That’s when the throwing of tractor parts begins: like a largescale stamp, the metal objects create impressions on the material. Heller and his studio assistants then use a multistage dying process to make the impressions more visible. “As soon as you start to do different layering of dye, colours and things, that’s what actually reveals the texture,” says Heller. Each pre-cut bag piece is individually textured and coloured with plant-based dyes.

RETAILER and business manager Carol Hyslop will join designer Lincoln Heller in commemorating the sale of the 1,000th Fiveleft bag at a special event next week. “In some ways you’re buying a canvas or a piece of art that’s wrapped into a bag,” says Heller. The results are a mix of elegantandedgy.Fiveleftmakes glossy handbags studded with metal, folded into complex
origami shapes; luxe leather luggage hailing from the era when people dressed up to travel; and a cheeky version of the traditional briefcase (Heller has dubbed his version “the career carrier”) with wide straps woven through the sides

Souza pays tribute to Chet Baker on new CD
From page 18
Souza can’t pinpoint when she was ﬁrst introduced to Baker’s music; she feels like it has been with her her whole life. “I became so obsessed with him in graduate school,” says Souza. “I transcribed everything I could get my hands on. I really did sort of a study . . . a thesis on Chet Baker, but in my head, and never committed that to anything.” Considered one of the jazz greats, Baker struggled with drug addiction for most of his life, was jailed several times and had an up-and-down career until his death in Amsterdam in 1988. Souza says she loves the vulnerability and fragility in Baker’s delivery. “It’s a sound that’s not masculine and it’s not feminine, it’s somewhere in between,

and I’m attracted to that. I remember listening to him when I was younger and thinking, he sounds like a boy.” When she recorded the songs on The Book of Chet, Souza focused on slowing down the music and a quiet delivery. “I’m forcing the listener into the corner,” says Souza. “I’m saying you have to sit here for the duration of this music.” In contrast to the way much music is recorded today, with separate tracks laid down and then layered together, both records were produced live in the studio. Having all the musicians together in the studio — the way records used to be made — was especially important for Duos III, says Souza. For the recording, she reunited with master guitarists Romero Lubambo, Marco Pereira and Toninho Horta. “Everybody is in the studio at the same time, we count off, and then we go,” says Souza. “If it’s not good we stop, and if it’s good we keep going, and then we go to the control room and we listen.” Critics have praised Souza’s singing for its emotional depth, and she says she’s constantly thinking about vocal expression. “How can the voice sound? Is it more woody, like a cello, or a viola? Or is it more like a ﬂute — is it sharp and metallic? Is it like a trumpet? Trying to ﬁnd those different colours and shapes in my mouth is also something that interests me.” Souza moves easily between jazz genres, but recently, classical composers have also sought her out. Souza performed a solo piece in The Passion of San Marcos by Argentine classical composer Osvaldo Golijov, and has also appeared with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic, the Atlanta Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. She suggests it’s the quality of her voice, expressly not classically trained, that attracts certain composers. “It’s a certain humanity,” she says. “My voice sounds like a human being’s voice. It’s not so trained . . . my approach, my breath, everything I do is not classical.” Souza taught for four years at the Manhattan School of Music and she is still an enthusiastic speaker and guest performer at music schools. This is her second time performing at Capilano, where she’ll meet with the big band and vocal ensembles to rehearse one day and perform the next. She has also performed at the Vancouver Jazz Festival in the past. “I really love being there,” she says. “I hope I have a chance to come back soon.” For more information on Luciana Souza’s performance at Capilano University, call 604-990-7810 or visit capilanou.ca.

Trudeau candidacy bodes well for party
From page 17
believes their choice is simple: they can co-operate or they can lose. “I don’t care if it’s a merger, or coalition or just some riding by riding co-operation, you’ve got to do something,” he says. Harper’s success was contingent on uniting disparate conservatives, according to Kinsella. “It was a mathematical analysis: if these various warring conservative factions remain apart, Liberals will continue to win . . . and if I bring them together, I will win,” Kinsella says of Harper’s strategy. But while many countries have gravitated to what Kinsella calls, “a binary political universe,” the Liberals and NDP remain divided. “They feel that their party has a tradition of its own and a history of its own worth preserving, and I understand that. It’s powerfully emotional stuff for a lot of people, but I guess what I’m arguing for is for people to be a little bit more clinical in the way that the Prime Minister was,” Kinsella says. The numbers from last year’s federal election seem to support Kinsella, as the Conservative party captured 54 per cent of the seats with approximately 40 per cent of the vote. Part of the reason for the Conservative Party’s electoral efﬁciency is an information database on each community in the country, according to Kinsella. “The Conservative Party had more money than God and they were able to funnel that into buying the kind of demographic database information that previously only Coca-Cola and Proctor and Gamble had,” Kinsella explains. “It’s not just knowing your address and your name and so on. These guys are able to know the kind of toothpaste that you use, the routes you take to work, the kind of car you drive and they’re able to micro-target. So it’s not just North Van District, they know particular city blocks. They know what people are pre-occupied with on one block in North Van. . . . ‘We know for example in this part of North Van there’s a concentration of Iranian-Canadians, so let’s target some messages with respect to what’s going on in Iran, and civil liberties in Iran.’ Whereas in another part of the riding they just wouldn’t do that.” While a left-wing coalition remains unlikely, Kinsella sees great promise in Justin Trudeau, the son of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau. “Political people like to get excited, too,” Kinsella says. “Justin represents an exciting opportunity for Liberals. I think he does two things I advocate in the book: he’s a very compelling speaker, very passionate speaker. And if you look at that speech he made the night he announced his candidacy, he talks repeatedly about values, middle-class values, and Canadian values. He’s not the only politician who does that, the Prime Minister does that as well.” Trudeau may also appeal to the three most important groups for Liberal success, according to Kinsella. “The three pillars of any progressive party’s success are newcomers to a country, women, and young people, and Trudeau is appealing because he’s appealing to all three of those constituencies, so that bodes well for the Liberals.” Despite Kinsella’s distaste of Conservative policies, he does ﬁnd some diversity on the other side of the aisle. “The Prime Minister has shown us, and I give him credit for this, he’s not a social conservative to the extent that some of us thought he might be. He voted with the NDP and the Liberals on abortion,” he says, referring to the Tory-backed anti-abortion bill that was defeated earlier this year. Asked if he’d get back in the Liberals’ war room, Kinsella is somewhat reticent. “For the right candidate,” he answers. “But maybe it’s time for some new faces, too. I’m becoming kind of an old fart, myself, so maybe it’s time for some new folks to step up and take those kinds of roles.”

Awkward Cloud Atlas fades fast
■ Cloud Atlas. Directed by Andy Wachowski, Tom Tykwer and Lana Wachowski. Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae and Jim Broadbent. Rating: 5 (out of 10)
Julie Crawford Contributing Writer
IMAGINE that you’re surrounded by scripts of disparate genres — science ﬁction, farcical comedy, period drama — all lacking that certain something. The solution? Tie them all together in one ﬁlm with the thinnest of thematic threads, and voila: a masterpiece? This is not how it happened, as the ﬁlm was adapted from David Mitchell’s best-selling novel. But Cloud Atlas, the star-studded, timetravelling epic co-directed by Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) and Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix fame) feels more like an exposé on the sameness of formulaic Hollywood scriptwriting than

Each cast member plays multiple roles From page 34
it does an existential lesson on how “from womb to tomb our lives are bound to others.” Publishers Weekly called Mitchell’s book “audacious, dazzling, pretentious and infuriating”: the review serves as a decent summation of the ﬁlm. The plots span centuries: in 1849 a clerk (Jim Sturgess) is sent to the Paciﬁc Islands to negotiate a slave contract, only to be poisoned by Tom Hanks. In 1936 a struggling composer (Ben Whishaw) acts as an amanuensis to a great composer (Jim Broadbent), and writes letters to his lover back home; in 1973 the lover (James D’Arcy) now aged, tells a reporter (Halle Berry) about a powerplant cover-up. Her life is endangered but she is saved by nuclear scientist Tom Hanks. A present-day publisher (Broadbent again), extorted by a Cockney Tom Hanks, ﬁnds himself in a nursing home. New Seoul in 2144 offers a twisted and gruesome extrapolation of Darwin’s theory, and needs a martyr (Doona Bae) to effect change. A few hundred years later we see Tom Hanks defending his village from a cannibalistic Hugh Grant and speaking to a visitor (Berry again) in a kind of space-age
Forest-Gump-Middle-Ages mashup. Just assume that Hanks will show up in almost every plotline, dressed in bizarro prosthetics. (You’ll recognize him: he’s the one with the worst accents.) Some story threads may offend rather than enlighten: Asian people will eat anything, apparently, and Scottish national soccer fans, known for their politeness abroad (it’s true: look it up) are vile. On more than one occasion characters become caricatures and disrupt the ﬁlm’s serious intent. In terms of casting, gender and race are erased: black plays white, men play women. It’s a beautiful thing, but a prostheticsand-makeup nightmare in places. Hugo Weaving (who starred in the Wachowskis’ Matrix trilogy) makes for a remarkably convincing Nurse Ratched, but elsewhere results are mixed. And if you are keeping score, Hanks, Weaving, Sturgess, Bae and Berry each play six roles; Broadbent and Susan Sarandon, as a witch doctor in one plotline, plays four. Stay for the closing credits to tally up. Excellent performances by all but Hanks (offering one or two of his worst) can’t save this glossy epic from fading from memory the moment you leave the theatre.

Cinematheque screens Clarke classics
■ Two by Shirley Clarke: The Connection (1961) and Ornette: Made in America (1985) in newly restored 35mm prints from Milestone Films and UCLA Film & Television Archive. Screening at Paciﬁc Cinémathèque Oct. 27-29 and 31. For more information visit thecinematheque.ca.
John Goodman firstname.lastname@example.org
VANCOUVER’S Paciﬁc Cinémathèque is screening two classic avant-garde works by New York City ﬁlmmaker Shirley Clarke — The Connection and Ornette: Made in America — in newly restored 35mm prints this weekend.
The ﬁlms are the ﬁrst in a comprehensive project initiated by Milestone Films to restore and distribute the works of Clarke (1919-1997), a pioneer feminist ﬁlmmaker known for her experimentation with ﬁlm and early video formats. Born into Park Avenue privilege, she lived out her life as the consummate Bohemian artist and for many years was a major hub of cinematic creativity ROSS LIPMAN & in New York City from her apartment at the Chelsea Hotel. KATHELIN GRAY Ross Lipman, senior ﬁlm preservationist with the UCLA Film & Television Archive, talked to the North Shore News earlier this week about restoring both The Connection and Ornette: Made in America. In a separate interview producer Kathelin Gray discussed working with Clarke during the production of Ornette.
photos supplied North Shore News: How did you become involved with the Shirley Clarke ﬁlm project? FILMMAKER Shirley Clarke standing behind video monitors on the roof of New York City’s Chelsea Hotel. Ross Lipman: The Shirley Clark project developed over a number of years. We actually had material in our collection because Shirley used to teach at UCLA. We had a bunch of outtakes from The Connection and maybe an old Finally, after two years of emails a box showed up at the archive. I opened the print or two. We decided to pursue restoring it and at that time we were in dialogue materials and lo and behold it was the original negative and it was mostly pristine with Lewis Allen Productions. Lewis Allen was a Broadway and ﬁlm producer who condition, all except for one reel, so it was pictorially beautiful with this exquisite she had worked with on The Connection. He was wonderful, as was his entire ofﬁce, cinematography by Arthur Ornitz. The real battle on The Connection was an and we worked with them to get the original material. The story behind that is kind administrative struggle to get us the right material because when you say you want to of interesting. preserve a ﬁlm you have to preserve it from something and what you’re preserving it Normally when I’m worrying on a project and someone wants to talk to me from can be a major factor in the end result. about it we’ll talk about the technical and artistic challenges. But for The Connection the original negative had been stored at a laboratory for many years and they were North Shore News: What was the timeline for that? going through some ﬁnancial hardship. It was really difﬁcult to get them to respond Ross Lipman: We actually preserved The Connection a long time ago. This preceded about shipping this material back. It took two years of emails from both myself and the Milestone project. I want to say it was 2002, certainly no later than 2004. It from Lewis Allen’s team, Sharon Fallon was his ofﬁce manager. We were a tag team toured around and made a screen here and there but nothing on the level of what calling, pleading, to send over the material. We didn’t even really know what it was at Milestone does on an international release. Then what happened is several years later Kathelin Gray, currently that time — we thought it was a duplicate negative which is a negative that is further Milestone started their project to work on all of Shirley Clarke’s ﬁlms. We’ve always working on the Research Vessel down — it’s been printed from a copy from a copy. Each time you go down a copy had a great relationship with Milestone, the archive has historically worked with them Heraclitus off the coast of with analogue ﬁlm printing you lose quality. We were still hoping they’d have even many times. In the interim UCLA had done a collaborative project with the Academy Spain as part of an ongoing that. Motion Picture Arts and Sciences preserving Robert Frost: A Lover’s Quarrel with the Mediterranean research project, World which is a lesser known but quite wonderful documentary talked to the North Shore that she did on the poet Robert Frost. Once Milestone worked News about her involvement out their arrangements with Shirley Clarke’s estate, through her as producer in the making of daughter Wendy, they came to us about working on Ornette: Ornette: Made in America. Made in America. So that was a truly collaborative project. The Connection and Robert Frost were collaborative projects as well. North Shore News: How did It’s a perfect example of what I was talking about earlier because the Caravan of Dreams get even though we’d done the preservation work we hadn’t done started in Fort Worth, Texas? any digital work on those two titles so Milestone came in and Kathelin Gray: Caravan of spearheaded with our collaboration the digital remastering of both Dreams was conceived by a those ﬁlms. So those projects became active again and reopened small group of people as kind years later. For Ornette we ended up doing the digital work in of a multifunctional art centre advance of the preservation or at least in parallell to it. to help with revitalization of the downtown of Fort Worth, North Shore News: What’s involved speciﬁcally on preserving the Texas. A major problem in Shirley Clarke ﬁlms? the U.S. in many of the old Ross Lipman: Each one is different because she was such cities was that the city core an experimenter. For The Connection, a large part of it was had become essentially dead administrative in getting the original negative. Having said that and people stopped living there’s several levels to that and it’s also an example of how the downtown. Caravan of project continued on into the future. We worked with the existing Dreams was conceived as the laboratories to get as good as possible black and white printing of revitalization of the city core the original cinematography of the original restoration. You can’t so we began construction and keep running print after print of that original negative. We had to renovation of this old building then make a duplicate negative copy so that when you’re running in Fort Worth in about 1981. it through the printer all those times it’s not risking damage to At that time no one was the rare original.

Group revitalized city centre From page 36
that area and blues was very important. People like Ornette Coleman, Ronald Shannon Jackson, Red Garland, all who became important in the jazz movement were raised in that area. When Caravan of Dreams opened in September of 1983 it was one of the ﬁrst, if not the ﬁrst, fully integrated public cultural institution in that area because the Old South where there was racial segregation had maintained cultural segregation. When Caravan of Dreams opened the city fathers weren’t conﬁdent that racial integration could be achieved at that time in the inner-city but the opening of the centre did successfully integrate culturally, racially, etc. North Shore News: Ornette Coleman seems like the perfect ﬁgure to be associated with the Caravan of Dreams project. Kathelin Gray: The choice of Fort Worth, Texas came before the realization that Ornette was from Fort Worth but when my old friend John Rockwell, who was a music critic at the New York Times for many years, pointed out that Ornette was from Fort Worth then it became kind of a climactic idea to have Ornette open the Caravan. He represented the full spectrum, from his early days playing rhythm and blues all the way through to free jazz and his experimentation with classical music, so yes he became a microcosm of the potentiality of a cutting edge artist being born in tough circumstances.
Ornette compiled from many sources From page 36
SHIRLEY Clarke originally ﬁlmed Ornette Coleman in the ’60s and then returned to her subject in 1983 when Kathelin Gray invited her to document the opening of the Caravan of Dreams in Fort Worth, Texas.
North Shore News: When did Shirley Clarke come into the picture? Kathelin Gray: About 1982 when Ornette was chosen to open the Caravan of Dreams. Looking to ﬁlm the opening Ornette said Shirley had started a movie in the ’60s and he actually had the footage from the ’60s under the bed in his building in New York. I screened some of that and then I asked Shirley if she wanted to continue her project. Her ﬁlming in the ’60s had been based on the relationship between Ornette and his son Denardo because he was bringing along his young son to be a player in his musical group. The orientation of the movie, as we saw it before Shirley became involved, was the life of a cutting edge avant-garde artist. What does it take to maintain that edge intellectually, creatively? How do you ﬁnd the stamina to keep going with your vision? That had kind of been the idea of this ﬁlm and when I contacted Shirley we decided to combine the two themes into the ﬁlm that became Ornette: Made in America. North Shore News: How long did Shirley spend in Fort Worth? Kathelin Gray: She came down a bit before the ﬁlming of the opening in late August.The score for Skies of America was the script for the ﬁlm and so that was the underlying focus of ﬁlming at that time. There were also the performances in the nightclub with Prime Time and the Buckminster
can be used and pushed. We had almost every format and the primary footage was shot mainly by Ed Lachman with a couple of other cameramen. Ed was the DP in Fort Worth and for important sections in New York as well.
Fuller-dedicated string quintet called Prime Design/Time Design in the dome. So she was probably there for a month. North Shore News: Were the dramatic sequences with the Theatre of All Possibilities done at that time as well? Kathelin Gray: Yes those sequences are based speciﬁcally on Ornette’s memories of important times in his childhood and recurrent dreams he had of the circle, the square and the triangle. All of the music video shorts within the ﬁlm had to do speciﬁcally with his dreams. North Shore News: You shot in Super 16 in Fort Worth? Kathelin Gray: The primary footage was shot in Super 16. The New York sequences at the World Trade Center and downtown in Harlem were shot in Beta. In addition to the primary ﬁlming we had archival footage comprised of practically every format that heretofore existed from 35 to weird video formats. It was an endless process to restore that footage. Shirley lived in the Chelsea Hotel and so I moved into the Chelsea for about a year and a half. We had two of our editing centres there and one external to that. On the ﬂoor of Shirley’s studio at the Chelsea I unwound the ancient video tapes that Ornette had taken on Prince Street. You see Don Cherry playing on Prince Street. And this is pure luck — Ornette had also ﬁlmed his trip to Jajouka in Morocco with Bob Palmer. I was
FILMMAKER Shirley Clarke in New York, circa 1967. looking for a section where William Burroughs and Brion Gysin appeared, taking a Q-Tip and alcohol and separating endless reels of video tape to determine what could be salvaged. Miraculously one of the few salvageable sections of the tape was just that section of Burroughs and Gysin and Palmer in Morocco. Ornette was one of the ﬁrst proponents of documenting your own work and so he latched on to some of the early Video Portapacks and such that started to revolutionize ﬁlmmaking in the late ’60s and early ’70s. He is someone who is always interested in the latest artistic medium and the possibilities of how technology
North Shore News: What was it like working with Shirley Clarke on the editing process after ﬁlming had been completed? Kathelin Gray: She herself edited in video so we had a U-Matic deck in her living studio at the Chelsea and then we also had another video editing deck in a closet on another ﬂoor and we would go in and out of Broadway Video for the editing of some of the so-called music video segments. Shirley loved everything that moved and she could remember what moved. I worked with her constantly throughout the editing process as a team, although obviously she was the primary editor. She was very much a dancer and was interested in the rhythm of the ﬁlm and any image that was not part of a stockin-trade of images. For example, in the talking heads segment, towards the end of the ﬁlm, she wanted to enclose the heads in cartoon television in order to give that Brechtian distance so that they weren’t looked at as experts so much as part of this theatrical creation. The primary gut orientation of the ﬁlm is the creative artist who is always looking for the new and pushing their own limits. Shirley was very much an equal of Ornette’s in that respect. It wasn’t that she was documenting what Ornette was doing she was participating in the creative process.
information through the successive generations. If you work off the prints of the dupe negative they’re going to look really really nice. They’re not going to look identical to prints off the original, that’s impossible, but that was one of the real challenges — testing and ﬁnding out how to manipulate the laboratory process and printing methods to retain the best quality of that negative which had a lot of detail. If you compare the prints that we made off our dupe negative compared to prints off the old dupe negative ours are much better. Ornette: Made in America is a compilation of every kind of format imaginable from home movies to video to Super 16 — there’s everything in there. There’s so many things in there you need to retain the collage nature of it. That was a challenge in itself but the thing that I think about when I think about Ornette was the soundtrack. The producer Kathelin (Hoffman) Gray did a great job of keeping all the original production materials however one item slipped through the cracks and I’m not phrasing this as a criticism this is one of the things that happens: the original ﬁnal master sound mix of the ﬁnal ﬁlm was lost probably in a laboratory closure because a lot of materials remain at the laboratories. So although we had all these outtakes and preliminary recordings nothing conformed to the ﬁnal version and because the ﬁlm is such a collage you can’t go in putting little piece after little piece because those scraps aren’t clearly identiﬁed. When they were ﬁlming the Skies of America concert in Fort Worth there were all sorts of cameras and recording equipment to best get high quality sound of the performance but we have nothing that corresponds to what Shirley did in the ﬁlm. We had to work from the old analogue ﬁlm prints and there we worked very closely with John Polito of Audio Mechanics, one of the best sound restoration labs in the country. We worked with these lower grade recordings but without distorting what was there worked to prize out the highest possible quality sound and the best audio ﬁdelity of the musical performances that appear in the ﬁlm. I’m very pleased with the way that that turned out because we really managed to get a real fullbodied sound and so much of the ﬁlm depends on the quality of the music and we’re really indebted to John Polito of AudoMechanics for that.

WHITEHOUSE, Mary Feb. 28, 1926 - Oct. 17, 2012 After eighty-six years filled with her special laughter, optimism and devotion to family, Mary (nee Powelson) Whitehouse has passed away. Mary was hoping to rejoin her husband Stuart who died earlier this year and whom she missed so very much. Let’s pray she will. Mary is survived by her sons, Ken (Candy, Christina, Sunshine) and Paul. She was the most loving person and the finest mother a boy could have. Mary was one of twelve children born to David and Genevieve Powelson in Raymond, Alberta. Stuart and Mary were equal partners in both life and business. Together they started Toy-Pak, the first wholesale toy distributor for the grocery trade in B.C. After retiring in West Vancouver, they enjoyed the luxury of traveling hand in hand for forty years. Winters were spent in the Palm Springs sun playing tennis. Summers were devoted to boating in B.C. aboard the Casablanca. A graveside service was held at Mountain View Cemetery. Let us celebrate Mary’s steadfast kindness with a manhattan. To our darling mother - Rest in Peace

most direct competitor for Prius c. It’s also a hybrid and although very close in size it’s a little longer and heavier and not quite as fuel efﬁcient. Oddly enough, it’s very likely that competition in this market niche will be good for both vehicles. Standard equipment in Prius c includes automatic climate control, a Bluetooth hands-free connection for mobile phones and auxiliary audio connections. An optional Technology Package adds a navigation system, 15inch aluminum alloy wheels, push button start, a “Smart Key” system, advanced voice recognition with text-to-speech connectivity and an advanced audio display. A “Premium Package” is also available and it includes the Technology Package
Here I am, committed cycle-commuter and grandson of an Ulster diesel-bus mechanic, swanning about town in a near-$600,000 drop-top Roller like my last name was “the Third.” Adding to the weirdness of the experience, I distinctly remember the exact moment I received the invitation to come drive this, the latest iteration of what many consider the ultimate automobile: high atop Deep Cove’s Quarry Rock, sweaty, dirty, and, thanks to a malfunctioning diaper, somewhat pooped-upon. But I digress. Let’s make with the wafting already. Rolls-Royce now has two lines, the Ghost and the Phantom. My Phantom test vehicle for the day is the larger of the two, and the only one available as a convertible — it also comes as a coupe, sedan and longwheel-base limousine. While the smooth near-silence of its V-12 and

THE Toyota Prius c puts up some impressive stats — rated at 3.7 litres/100 kilometres in the city, it’s the most fuel-efﬁcient vehicle available in Canada. It’s also the country’s lowest priced new hybrid.

Prius c an efﬁciency freak
David Chao and Bob McHugh Contributing Writers
IT’S hard to believe that a car can actually achieve a 3.7 litre/100 kilometre city fuel economy rating, which is an incredible 81 miles per gallon for those who still prefer to think in non-metric terms. The Prius c is Canada’s most fuelefﬁcient vehicle — a smaller version of the hybrid that started us down an auto electriﬁcation path that’s ﬁnally gaining consumer acceptance and marketing momentum. A base MSRP of $20,950 also makes the Prius c the lowest-priced new hybrid that you can buy in Canada. It’s

surprisingly roomy on the inside due to clever space-saving design features and it can seat four or ﬁve adults with a surprisingly high level of comfort. Other than also having a full hybrid powertrain, the Prius c actually shares very little with the original Prius, now called Prius Liftback, or the larger new Prius v. In addition to its smaller all-around exterior dimensions, the Prius c has a smaller gas engine (1.5 litre), gas tank (36 litre), hybrid battery pack (144 volt) and electric motors (45 kW). Yet because the Prius c is considerably lighter (at 1,133 kilograms), it performs as well or better than its bigger brother. It also handles better, it’s easier to park and it doesn’t feel much smaller when you get inside. The Honda Insight stands out as the

Roller’s driver’s seat feels more like a throne From page 48
a wraith-like glide would make you think “Phantom” is a perfect name for this beautifully crafted machine, I disagree. A phantom is something one just catches out of the corner of one’s eye; a semi-invisible trick of the light. By contrast, the Rolls-Royce version visually smacks you upside the head like an ACME frying pan. It is as colossal as a cathedral, as imposing as a triple-decker ship-of-the-line with all the guns run out and every man-jack armed to the teeth. While AMGs and BMW Ms and Audi Ss cruise around ﬂashily with gills and grilles and huge-diameter rims, they are just background noise compared to this. The Roller doesn’t have a driver’s seat, it has a throne. In the long-wheelbase versions, for which Vancouver has the largest percentage of ownership in North America, that throne can be found in the back, where plutocrats and potentates are whisked about in anonymity. In the coupe, command position is moved up front. This Drophead model feels a bit like a mobile version of the balcony at Buckingham Palace. ‘Hello, hello there, happy and adoring proles! Enjoying yourselves? Jolly good show.’ It’s a crisp autumn day, but a sunny one, and as the Phantom plies its way through the madding crowd and then out around Stanley Park, let’s tick off what few changes there are. Firstly, the Series II gains LED-based lighting up front and a new one-piece grille. Underneath, the BMW-sourced V-12 is now joined to an eight-speed automatic transmission for added smoothness. In many ways, you don’t drive a Rolls-Royce, you sail it. Press on the accelerator and there’s a sense of working against a great deal of inertia, like trying rouse a member of the House of Lords after a large lunch. The gleaming bonnet inclines slightly and the Phantom glides forward with purpose — one practically expects to see a wake in the tarmac behind you. It’s surprisingly fast for such a behemoth, and there’s even a sport button (ridiculous), which will spur the transmission into greater action. As if. You might as well suit up Her Majesty in Nomex and have her enter a drifting competition — while 453 horsepower See Crowds page 52

THIS Rolls-Royce may be known as the Phantom but there is nothing ethereal about its appearance — it’s nearly impossible not to stare as one of these stunning vessels sails down the street.

THE interior of a Rolls-Royce can be tailored any way you like it, from plaid upholstery to hardwood ﬂoors to a backseat humidor.

what’s on tap. Instead, drink in the luxurious touches that you have carefully selected. Yes, I said “you”: a Rolls-Royce is not some off-the-peg Germanic business suit, it’s a carefully tailored affair. Rolls like to refer to the process as “bespoke,” a term that sounds a bit strange when coming out of the mouth of a California-accented PR person. Essentially, you can have an interior designed anyway you wish, far beyond the bounds of good taste or sensibility. Care to chuck out the rear seats for a car-sized humidor? Not a bother. Want to upholster the ﬂoor in leather and put carpeting on the seats? As sir/madam wishes. I think mine would be plaid, with teak hardwood ﬂoors. And maybe cannons. Silliness aside, four-door Phantoms are more likely to be black-tie affairs, but the coupes and cabriolets are icons of individualistic expression, and they certainly capture the attention of passers by. The pure white ﬂanks of my (for the day) Drophead are slathered in extra-thick Carrara White paint, but they might as well have called it Eyeball Magnet for the gazes it gets. Having popped home to don a ﬂat-cap, I’m hamming it up as Laird of
the Glen. Mooring the thing in the driveway brieﬂy, I get to meet most of the neighbourhood: everyone wants to stop and check out the Rolls. With a grandmother called in for babysitting duties, I squire my wife off around North Vancouver, feeling like a toff and ﬁddling about with the switch that retracts the nosemounted Spirit of Ecstasy ornament. At an eye-watering $585,000, the Roller is worth more than the ten closest cars we’re driving alongside. And then, just as I’m feeling rather smug, I spot somebody driving the other way in a million-dollar Ferrari Enzo. Sigh. Only on the North Shore. Back to the dealership, and a more than usually reluctant relinquishing of the keys. What a unique thrill. A once-in-a-lifetime experience. Bucket-list item checked. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up. Brendan McAleer is a freelance writer and automotive enthusiast.

Porsche wagon turns heads at Paris show A treasure trove of essential automotive quick hits:
Drawing board Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo concept: The Paris (France) Motor Show saw the unveiling of this stunning wagon variant of the Porsche Panamera. Some pundits are suggesting the Sport Turismo Concept that was displayed with a hybrid powerplant could eventually replace the hatchback, given the controversy surrounding its hind-quarter design. However it’s more likely that the ultrasleek concept will be built within the next two years to go head-to-head with the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake. Auto trivia ■ A 1976 Mercedes-Benz 240D that now resides in the company’s museum in Stuttgart, Germany, was previously owned by a Greek taxi driver who drove it an astonishing 4.5 million kilometres. ■ Long before Volkswagen adopted the name, the Passat company in England built the ﬁrst-ever ﬂying car in 1910, using wings that could be folded back when traveling on roads. Who am I? To guess his secret identity,
read the following clues! 1) You might not have heard of him, but you probably know of the talent he nurtured while in Formula One. 2) “Without (him), I would not be where I am today,” legendary F1 driver Jackie Stewart once said. 3) At six-foot-ﬁve, this Brit was known to many simply as “Uncle Ken.” 4) His race cars were all painted blue. One even had six wheels. 5) He died at age 77 in 2001 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Still stumped? Ken Tyrell began as a race driver, but gave it up to be a team owner who developed other more talented drivers. What’s up, auto doc? A common question the Auto Doc receives has to do with what the SOHC and DOHC terms mean and their differences. Both refer to the location of an engine’s camshafts and whether there’s one or two of them. For a single over-headcam engine, there’s one camshaft located atop each cylinder head that actuates the valves. In a double over-headcamshaft layout, there are two in each head: one to actuate the exhaust valves and the

other for the intake valves. OK, but the real question is, does this actually mean anything to you? In most cases no, but it is generally accepted that DOHC motors are
more performance oriented and thereby offer more bragging rights and cachet. But, the Auto Doc generally ignores this as there are a good many high-performance SOHC motors out there, too. Either will usually provide higher revving capabilities, and often higher
horsepower levels per engine displacement, than the older cam-in-the-block design that’s typical of past domestic V-6 and V-8 designs. Share your tips with the Auto Doc at www. shiftweekly.com using the contact form. eBay watch
1957 Chevrolet Apache pickup, sold, US$14,000: From 1955 to ‘59, Chevrolet called its light-duty pickup the Apache. As with its passenger-car counterparts, the “Task Force” series of trucks featured wrap-around windshields and optional 283-cubic-inch V-8 engines. But the most common powertrain was Chevrolet’s 235-cubic-inch inline six connected to a columnmounted three-speed manual transmission (automatics in pickups were unheard of). This particular “Stepside” model — enclosed-fender “Stylesides” weren’t introduced until 1958 — has been well restored and worth every penny of its selling price. Visit www.ebaymotors.com. Top Gear Whispbar; about $450$550, www.yakima.com/ learn/whispbar: The company states that Whispbar roof racks have been speciﬁcally designed by a former Rolls-Royce aircraft engineer to cut down on wind noise, aerodynamic drag and vibration. And that apparently helps fuel efﬁciency (hey, every little bit helps). There are four different styles of Whispbar. — Wheelbase Media

instrument panel, this one is compromisingly different as it’s offset to the driver’s side. Hopefully, the next redesign will move it all back in front of the driver — where it belongs. Other niggles with the cabin include the placement of two drivemode switches on the ﬂoor by the park brake and non-adjustable shoulder lever seat belt anchors. On the plus side, there are lots of handy storage spots, and above average height drivers should feel comfortable behind the steering wheel, which is smaller than the norm and the lower part of its rim is ﬂat. There’s more room in the rear than you might initially think as the seat cushion is larger than usual. This is because the hybrid battery pack and gas tank are both located under the rear seat. As you might expect, the rear seatbacks fold down to increase the cargo area, and they offer 60/40 split ﬂexibility. Safety In addition to the usual front, side and side-curtain airbags, there’s also a driver’s See Fuel page 55

knee airbag and front seat cushion airbags, which help position an occupant properly for a collision. Unlike the other Prius models, Prius c does not come with active head restraints on the front seats. The drive One of the best handling small hybrids that we’ve driven, the Prius c has a surprisingly nimble and balanced feel that’s difﬁcult to achieve when a heavy battery pack has to be hauled around. With more oomph from the powertrain, especially on kick-down, it might even claim sporty status. Great fuel economy, however, is the priority here, as the two optional (push button) driving modes offered are Eco and EV. Eco softens performance to conserve (even more) fuel and EV allows maximum use of its pure electric drive mode at low vehicle speeds. On the road, the powertrain is very quiet in operation, even though the hybrid system is constantly switching from gas to electric or using a combination of both. A graphic showing what’s going on under the hood can be the selected view on an instrument panel screen. Prius c is not as bouncy as other small cars can be on the highway and has a nice
stable feel, even at speeds of more than 100 kilometres per hour. Although the steering is on the light side, handling is predictable and it stays relatively ﬂat in corners. The score A savvy commuter champion, the Toyota Prius c is super fuel efﬁcient, highly manoeuvrable, has all the latest electronic connectivity stuff and best of all . . . it’s a bargain buy eco-friendly hybrid.
