No jail for Whistler sled dog killer Crown agrees to probation, community service and $5K ﬁne Jane Seyd email@example.com
A man who sparked international outrage by shooting dozens of Whistler sled dogs in a mass cull in 2010 will not go to jail.
Crown prosecutor Nicole Gregoire told North Vancouver provincial court Judge Steven Merrick on Thursday jail wasn’t needed for Robert Fawcett, a former employee of the sled dog tour company Outdoor Adventures, noting he has already become a pariah, suffered intense media scrutiny and feels extreme remorse for his actions. Instead, Gregoire asked for three years probation, combined with 200 hours of community work service and a $5,000 ﬁne. Animal rights advocates sobbed and gasped in a packed North Vancouver courtroom Thursday morning as a Crown prosecutor described in graphic detail how about 50 Whistler sled dogs were killed. Fawcett was sentenced after pleading guilty to causing unnecessary pain and suffering to nine of the dogs that were culled in a two-day period after a slump in the business following the 2010 Whistler Olympics. The case set off an international media ﬁrestorm when details of the case became public after Fawcett ﬁled a claim with WorkSafe BC for post-traumatic stress disorder connected to the dog cull. Fawcett later told another employee of the tour company, “‘Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong,’” said Gregoire. Reading from an agreed statement of facts, Gregoire outlined how Fawcett euthanized the dogs by shooting them with a .22 riﬂe and a 12-gauge shotgun, after he felt he had run out of options to either ﬁnd them homes or continue to care for them. Fawcett decided to use a gun to kill the dogs after a veterinarian refused to euthanize that many dogs. Fawcett later said he never imagined the scene would be as “horriﬁc” as it was. In court, Gregoire described graphic details of the dog cull, including Fawcett chasing panicked dogs and wrestling them to the ground, dogs biting him and See Gory page 3

ANIMAL rights protesters, some with dogs, were waiting outside the North Vancouver provincial courthouse Thursday morning for sled dog killer Robert Fawcett to appear for sentencing.
James Postlethwaite, 60, was convicted in a Washington state courtroom last week of conspiracy to distribute marijuana — a charge that carries a minimum 10-year sentence because of the large amount of drugs being transported. The group Postlethwaite was accused for working with was bringing in as much 450 to 900 kilograms of marijuana every month and returning to Canada with 100 to 200 kilograms of cocaine, according to a press release from U.S. attorney Jenny Durkan. Postlethwaite made as many as 95 trips carrying hundreds of pounds of drugs See more page 5

Police seek Victim Services volunteers Brent Richter email@example.com
THE West Vancouver Police Department is looking for volunteers to provide the all-important human contact for victims in the wake of crime and trauma. The Victims Services unit and police are hosting an information session on Thursday Nov. 29 to orient potential new volunteers to the program and its responsibilities. “We’re available 24/7 for police and emergency responders,” said Bunny Brown, Victim Services program manager. “If there’s an incident where someone is experiencing any type of trauma, we’re there to respond and provide emotional support and practical information at the time,” she said. “Oftentimes, when someone is going through a particular trauma, they sometimes aren’t thinking clearly about what needs to be done.” Most commonly, volunteers are asked to assist police when notifying the next of kin in cases of sudden death. “It’s being able to help someone get through what in a lot of cases is the most difﬁcult time in their life . . . but oftentimes, it’s just that immediate support that they need.” Volunteers accepted to the program will be provided with 60 hours of classroom and practical training in the new year. Victim Services is in particular need of volunteers who can speak Mandarin and Korean, Brown said. The information session runs Nov. 29 at 6:30 p.m. at the West Vancouver Police Department.

Real housewife of WV receives threats by text
Jody Claman hires bodyguard James Weldon email@example.com
ONE of West Vancouver’s real housewives has reportedly hired a bodyguard after she received a series of venomous text messages last month. Jody Claman, owner of the Glass House clothing store in Ambleside and a star of the Real Housewives of Vancouver reality series, received the rambling, typo-riddled threats in the second week of October from a sender who referred to herself as a “very close friend” of castmate and onscreen rival Mary Zilba. “Do some research on my past no one talks to my friends this way. Your done!” the person wrote in part, according to a transcript supplied by Claman’s lawyer. “Enjoy you deserve everything coming your way lolol Sweetie crack heads have nothing to lose and can’t wait to meet you . . . Good luck you couldn’t keep that trap of yours shut.” The writer went on to say she

would encounter Claman in the near future, and appeared to imply Claman could get hurt in retribution for something she had said or done to Zilba during a recent shoot for the show’s second season. “Don’t worry soon sweetie very soon. . . Oh btw Its terrible what u hear on the news these days about plastic covered ball pin hammers mutilated humans who would do such a thing. . Tying people up beating them then dropping their carnage off at the hosp.. Wow, I’d hate to be involved in any of that. . What is the world coming to.” The writer later chided Claman for reporting the texts to producers, and warned her to stay away from Zilba.
“If you so much as say 1 thing to mary tomorrow you will regret it I promise,” she wrote. “The only thing you say to her is sorry for being such a disgusting disrespectful disgrace of a human being.” “My client was afraid for her personal safety,” said Claman’s lawyer, Brian MacKay. “These are the only credible threats,” she has received in relation to the show, he added. Claman reported the incident to the WVPD and hired a bodyguard, said MacKay. The force investigated, and the sender was reportedly identiﬁed as a “passing acquaintance” of Claman’s, he said. “The producer did talk to the person, who admitted she had sent the text messages and . . . said she shouldn’t have,” said MacKay. “I am informed by the West Vancouver police that unless there are further incidents, they will leave the (ﬁle) as is.” Claman could not immediately be reached for comment. A spokeswoman for the WVPD said they would not speak to the ﬁle for privacy reasons. The Canadian spinoff of the popular American Real Housewives series ﬁrst aired in April this year. Production began for a second season over the summer.
several dogs that did not die after being shot the ﬁrst time but suffered terrible, painful wounds. In those cases, experts who later examined the dogs’ bodies concluded nine of them had remained alive until Fawcett either shot them again, or in one case used a knife to slice a dog’s throat because he had no bullets left, said Gregoire. Experts concluded one dog probably lived as long as 20 minutes before succumbing to its injuries. As the details of how the nine dogs had suffered were read aloud, one woman shouted at Fawcett from the public gallery, “You could have stopped anytime,” prompting a warning from the judge. Later, outside the courtroom, Jan Carroll described Fawcett’s actions as “intolerable.” In court, however, Gregoire stressed Fawcett was being sentenced for causing nine dogs to suffer — “Not 100. Not 300.” Shooting the other sled dogs was a “lawful business decision . . . whether the public or the court likes it or not,” she said. In court Thursday, Gregoire described the dire ﬁnancial situation of the sled dog company and its inability to care for its large pack of sled dogs leading up to the cull. The animal cruelty head of the SPCA later told investigators “It would have acted if it had known the dogs were going to be slaughtered,” said Gregoire. But defence lawyer Greg Diamond told Merrick that Fawcett knew the SPCA would not be able to adopt the dogs. He eventually agreed to shoot them himself because “he felt he could do it compassionately. He didn’t want that burden placed on anyone else,” said Diamond. “He clearly failed to recognize the potential for things going horribly wrong.” Since the cull, Diamond said Fawcett has suffered nightmares and ﬂashbacks. Fawcett’s family has also been subject to “horrible, graphic death threats” and had to go into hiding for their own safety, said Diamond. Diamond said Fawcett has been treated for being suicidal and still has “dark and fearful times.” On Thursday, someone in the court hallway called him a “murderer,” said Diamond. “He already feels like a murderer,” said the lawyer. Diamond said Fawcett has told him “I will never stop feeling guilty” for the suffering experienced by the dogs that day, adding, “A part of me died with those dogs.”

He had been in police custody in the U.S. since his arrest at the B.C.-Idaho border in March. Several U.S. agencies including the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force and Department of Homeland Security had been working on the investigation since 2010. A series of wiretaps revealed the location of a Seattle-area warehouse where Postlethwaite would deliver shipments of “BC Bud,” the release stated. It took a jury about 90 minutes of deliberation to convict Postlethwaite following the three-day trial, Durkan said. Two dozen people in the U.S. and Canada have been charged in the case. Seven have already been sentenced to lengthy prison terms. Postlethwaite is scheduled to learn his full sentence on March 1 next year. He is listed as owner of Strive Trucking on Westover Road.

In an effort to minimize the number of nights the Contractor will be onsite, the Municipality has consulted with BC Ferries and the Contractor to develop an alternate construction method. The solution requires that two of the three sections of the ﬂoating municipal dock are removed for this limited time. The section by the ramp will remain in place so that the Water Taxi and Emergency Services will not be affected. Improving these structures will help ensure continued safe and reliable terminal service for years to come.

Children come ﬁrst T
HE Ministry of Children and Family Development said Wednesday, “The B.C. child poverty rate is at its second-lowest level since 1980.” That sounds excellent, doesn’t it? But consider also the information First Call B.C. released not long before the ministry “fact sheet” hit the wire: that B.C.’s child poverty rate is the second highest in Canada. First Call went on to point out that this province had the highest childpoverty rates in all of Canada for the previous eight years. While it’s always fun to watch how government communications professionals can spin bad news into good, the truth is there is some wiggle room in the ﬁgures presented by First Call, a child advocacy coalition representing more than 100 B.C.
organizations and communities. Its ﬁgures are based on the latest Statistics Canada ﬁgures, but they apply to 2010 and therefore do not take into account the increase in the minimum wage to $10.25 per hour in B.C., an increase to some disability payments and new earnings exemptions for those on welfare. The numbers are also pre-tax. So, the B.C. Liberal government could well conclude that this province’s child poverty rate ﬁgures are less alarming than First Call is suggesting. But the fact is that a comparatively prosperous province like B.C. has recorded such shameful ﬁgures for close to a decade. The time is past due for Premier Christy Clark to consider an addendum to her Families First agenda that puts children ﬁrst.
Wrong time, wrong place for WV gallery
CHRISTMAS is coming, the goose is getting fat, so I’d hate to disappoint Constant Reader by being hoho-ho in favour of something.
I stand by my proud record of rejection, most famously of the entire 20th century. (The 21st isn’t looking so hot either.) Turning to Greater Tiddlycove, a.k.a. West Vancouver, I’m foursquare opposed to the pitch for an art gallery. At Ambleside Beach. Or anywhere. Or for any unnecessary bauble that will stick it to taxpayers. We can’t afford it. We — the entire Western world, the eastern world too, even Tiddlycove — are hurtling toward bankruptcy. Haven’t you read the papers? Or heard Michael Campbell’s dystopian predictions on CKNW? Maybe not. Simple, trusting souls hold to a kind of implacable disbelief in ﬁnancial talk. Too
This Just In
Trevor Lautens complicated. Boring. Even more, suspect. The ﬁscal cliff, sovereign debt, that’s just the governments, the banks and ﬁnance-page columnists jawing. Way above most people’s heads. Let the good times roll — back, back to where they were. Painlessly. But that subject will wait for another day. Here and now, this is no time — if ever — to build an art gallery in West Van. “A giant milestone for us,” Merla Beckerman said of the council’s supportive vote. No. A giant millstone.
Around paragraph 93 of the news report, the ugly — nay, philistinic — matter of money was gently raised. There isn’t any. There is only hope: That donations and grants will pay the “estimated” $25 million construction costs. Don’t eat that, Elmer, as we used to say. In its earliest days, our glossy 21st Street community centre was estimated to cost $6 million. Completed, after blunders and delays, the ﬁnal bill was north of $40 million, and it sucked town hall’s savings account dry. Then there are operating costs for the proposed threestory, 28,000-square-foot building. Brent Leigh, deputy chief administrative ofﬁcer, projects “private funding models” with “minimal district (i.e., taxpayer) support to pay those bills.” A 12-month-a-year Santa Claus. May I interrupt? I am not indifferent to art. Last month I bought three paintings, and about 10 in the last year or so, most by West Van and Bowen
Island artists, including three by the under-recognized late Pam Scott, of Dundarave. One is by Tom Roberts, described as a member of the Group of Eight, if only there had been eight. Of course I’ve been to the usual galleries. The Ufﬁzi in Milan. The Tate. The Jeu de Paume in Paris and the predictable Louvre. The Guggenheim. The Art Institute of Chicago. The Buffalo. The Toronto. The Honolulu . . . never mind. But those are triﬂes. I claim no expertise. In art, or anything. Only some familiarity with the art of spending other people’s money, i.e. taxpayers’, and the many petitioners of governments for their particular cause. The arts know no peer in this regard. OK, wouldn’t want to hurt the feelings of grasping sports team owners demanding free arenas or stadiums from grovelling city councils. Back to West Van’s proposed art ediﬁce. Build it, and who will come? That is — come more than once or
twice a year? Because art galleries are like poker: You have to keep shufﬂing the deck. The enthusiasts are relatively few, and they won’t pay an eye-blinking entrance fee, like the Vancouver Art Gallery’s, unless the displays are vigorously changed. The VAG is a compelling example. The lobbyists for a new gallery in an inferior venue — the VAG enjoys a majestic building and a centre-of-town location that other galleries would drink linseed oil for — plead lack of wall space, that 9,500-odd paintings are stored unseen in its vaults. Of which, I’d guess, 9,000 are so-so, not especially worth seeing. Galleries, desperate for funds, count on imported shows of international drawing power to stay alive — something like restaurants sustained by Saturday nights and retailers praying for a good Christmas. Such VAG-level shows must appeal to those (like me) with marginal interest in and knowledge of art — who
have to be told, expensively and often, that a ﬁve-month display of 16th-century Volcanovian church art, or le dernier cri from Paris, is an absolute must-see. An art gallery in our little town, pop. 44,000, would be nowhere in that league, of course. No misunderstanding: Advocates like Ruth Payne, the widely experienced Merla Beckerman, Darrin Morrison and Michael Evison are good people in a nice cause. But I’d say wrong time — and wrong place. Town hall will clear the last few (and valuable, for night-time safety alone) beachfront houses on Ambleside Beach, while plonking down a view-limiting three-storey building on a parking lot, with drivers already screaming for space? Spare us. ••• So it wasn’t a misprint: The B.C. Property Assessment Appeal Board really did reduce the value of B.C. Ferries’ Horseshoe Bay terminal from $47.9 million to $20. I’ll take 10 of them. email@example.com

NDP can learn from history
A new book on a pivotal time in B.C. history is an excellent guide for how a government can ensure it won’t survive, no matter how good its intentions.
Even though the book is about the NDP government of the 1970s, one assumes current NDP leader Adrian Dix realizes it contains lessons he won’t want to repeat if he forms government next spring. The book — The Art of the Impossible: Dave Barrett and the NDP in Power 19721975 — paints a picture of a government on a frantic rollercoaster ride, eager to fulﬁll ambitions that had lingered for decades and wanting to do so as quickly as possible. The authors, Rod Mickleburgh and Geoff Meggs, provide a sympathetic account of Barrett’s wild ride. While mindful of the historic legacy of his government, they don’t sugarcoat the sense of near-chaos, poor planning and lack of strategy that ultimately doomed Barrett’s administration. There’s no question the NDP government of the 1970s established a rich and enduring legacy of landmark legislation that changed B.C. for the better in so many areas of society. The list is a long one: protection of agricultural land, a modern and

fair labour code, a provincial ambulance service, public auto insurance, community colleges, a legislature question period, neighbourhood pubs, and Pharmacare. The NDP also banned the strap in schools and abolished pay toilets. In all, they passed more than 350 bills in three years at a breathtaking average rate of two bills a week. But in their rush to do so much, they made many missteps. The Barrett government picked ﬁghts everywhere, including with their own supporters, many of whom were blind to the realities of government and what it took to get re-elected. Barrett also contributed in a great way to the polarization of B.C. politics, which ultimately worked against him and the NDP in the years following. After his defeat in 1975, Barrett fought two more elections

against Social Credit premier Bill Bennett and lost each time. Polarization pitted the NDP against a larger pool of voters united against them, thus ensuring their loss. The book also shows how much B.C.’s political culture has changed since then, and here is where the lessons for Dix — and for Premier Christy Clark as well — come in. First, the organized labour movement is a shadow of its former self. Barrett had to deal with powerful private sector union leaders who threatened to bring down his government after he legislated more than 50,000 striking workers back on the job. In fact, it can be argued much of that labour movement deserted the NDP in the 1975 election, which was akin to cutting off their nose to spite their face, as the Social Credit government was far less friendly to its interests. But labour no longer has that kind of political might. Much of its power now resides among public sector unions, which are more narrowly focused on their own plight. This removes a potential headache for Dix should he become premier. He won’t face the same kind of pressure from the labour movement that kept Barrett up late at nights. Another thing that jumps out of The Art of the Impossible is how the forest industry has also almost disappeared from
the political arena. Back then, forestry was the dominant industry in this province and even talk of work stoppages in it were huge events. Union leaders like Jack Munro and Art Gruntman wielded considerable political power. Today, the industry has suffered thousands of job losses and simply doesn’t have the ﬁnancial or political clout that played such a prominent role during Barrett’s time. Neither Dix nor Clark shows any signs of emulating Barrett’s approach to governing. Dix keeps stressing he has a “modest” agenda for government, and has repeatedly said he doesn’t intend to bring in a lot of legislation should he gain power. As for Clark, she seems genuinely disinterested (if not contemptuous) of the legislature and the legislated process itself. But given Barrett’s penchant for polarizing the electorate, it’s interesting that it’s not the current NDP leader who seeks to do that. Dix is trying to turn down the temperature and play less partisan politics. But Clark is the one trying to polarize everything, to make the choice next May a stark one between left and right with nothing in the middle. It is Clark who is behaving more like Barrett. Such are the ironies of B.C. politics! Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

INQUIRING REPORTER IN an attempt to keep shoppers from crossing the border, Canadian retailers are rolling out local deals this weekend. Black Friday, the day after U.S. Thanksgiving, has long been marked as the convergence of commercialism and Christmas spirit. By some estimates, Canadians spend as much as $5 billion in the United States in November and December. Find us on Facebook or Twitter and tell us if you’re interested in the day when retailers’ red books turn black, or is the fear of trampling, pepper spray, and big game bargain hunters enough to keep you at home? — Jeremy Shepherd
Yashar K. Beigi North Vancouver “Yes. Since it’s getting close to Christmas, everybody’s looking for great deals.”
Are you going shopping on Black Friday?
Kosta Stoyanov North Vancouver “No, I’m not going to do anything different.”
George Saunders North Vancouver “I wouldn’t line up two days ahead, but I think having sales is good anytime.”
Tom Elliott North Vancouver “Possibly not because I’m working. Maybe.”
Barry Brolly North Vancouver “I don’t even shop.”
W. Van council grants variances Jeremy Shepherd firstname.lastname@example.org
TWO properties on the north end of Citrus Wynd in West Vancouver were granted permits Monday allowing for three-storey buildings along with a basement and a garage to be built on each lot. The project is one of several variance issues to come before council in recent months. “Shouldn’t we amend bylaws so this stuff doesn’t take up so much of council’s time?” asked Coun. Craig Cameron. Coun. Bill Soprovich, who cast the lone vote against granting the variance, said the basement should be included when calculating the total ﬂoor area ratio (FAR), which measures the total ﬂoor space against the size of the lot. Each building’s area will be approximately 464 square metres, not including the basement or garage. Both buildings will also have the opportunity to exceed the district-mandated building heights by one storey. The taller of the two homes could measure 12.2 metres, requiring a variance permit of 4.58 metres. Because tall trees isolate the lots within a low-density area, district staff recommended granting the permits. Construction is expected to include blasting to make room for a swimming pool, prompting Coun. Michael Lewis to suggest any rock taken out of the area be utilized for foreshore maintenance. A similar permit with several variances was issued to the properties in 2002, but expired before construction took place. In the District of North Vancouver, the basement is not included in the FAR if the ﬁrst ﬂoor is fewer than four feet above grade level. Basements are included in FAR as calculated by the City of North Vancouver. Cellars at least ﬁve feet below the average grade level around the house can be excluded from the city’s measurements.

Appeal court upholds early parole for some Sentenced criminals exempt from law change
Jane Seyd email@example.com
THE B.C. Court of Appeal has upheld a decision that ruled scrapping early parole for people who have already been sentenced was a violation of their rights. A panel of three appeal court justices agreed with a North Vancouver weapons dealer and two other inmates that a Conservative law abolishing early parole amounted to additional punishment after sentencing and shouldn’t be allowed. At the time he launched his constitutional challenge to the law, Christopher John Whaling, 42, was serving a sentence at the minimum security Ferndale Institution, after being convicted of three gun offences in September 2010. Whaling, who used to be a veriﬁer for the Canadian Firearms Registry, was nabbed ﬁve years ago as part of a police investigation into a large-scale gun-trafﬁcking ring in the Lower Mainland. When police searched Whaling’s North Vancouver home on East Keith Road under warrant, they found a large quantity of unregistered ﬁrearms, including two 45-calibre handguns — one of which was loaded — and a MAC-10 automatic pistol, as well as machine guns in various stages of completion. He also had a gun similar to an AK-47 that he had converted into a fully automatic weapon and stashed in a box in the woods near Squamish. In September 2010, Whaling was sentenced

to four and a half years in jail. Because he was a ﬁrst-time federal offender serving a sentence for non-violent offences, Whaling was entitled to apply for accelerated day parole, which allows offenders to be released on parole after just one-sixth of their sentence. But when the federal government’s new law abolishing accelerated parole came into effect, in March of 2011, Whaling got a letter saying he was no longer eligible for the program. A parole board panel later denied Whaling regular parole, on the grounds that he continued to deny doing anything illegal and that he was at risk of engaging in similar gun sales to criminals in the future. A month later, Whaling was let out of jail on bail pending an appeal of his conviction. In June, the B.C. Supreme Court struck down the parts of the law that applied to people like Whaling who had already been sentenced for their crimes, saying it amounted to additional punishment. The Attorney General of Canada appealed that ruling. But on Nov. 2, the appeal court upheld the lower court decision. As of the end of September, the ruling affected 39 people who were serving sentences in British Columbia, according to court documents. Under the old rules, offenders convicted of nonviolent crimes could apply for release after serving only one-sixth of their sentence. As long as the parole board didn’t think they were likely to commit a violent crime, it had to release them. Under the new rules, no offender is eligible for parole until they have served at least a third of their sentence. Parole is harder to get, because parole boards must be convinced the convict is unlikely to commit any further crimes — not just violent ones — and have discretion to deny parole.

THE two roads crossed in a lonely Mississippi county.
Standing on that cross, the bluesman sold his soul to the devil, walking away with an ability to play guitar like no one before him. Ever since the story of Tommy Johnson’s deal with the dark prince, the blues and Christianity have shared an uneasy relationship. Blues songs have often been about rebellion and lament, the hellhounds on your trail or the devil who’s got your woman. On ﬁrst listen, Kelly Joe Phelps’ latest album, Brother Sinner and the Whale, is part of that tradition, soaked in whiskey and seasoned with sadness. But then the lyrics come in. “Why do I choose to suffer when I can live with God?” Phelps sings. There’s no mojo hand or backdoor man in these tunes, instead, Phelps has crafted songs about salvation and glory, each one connected to a different bible passage. “Christianity was a big part of my childhood years. I’ve done the fairly common thing over the course of time of kind of drifting in and out of it,” Phelps says, speaking slowly and in low tones. The album is spare and personal, recorded in three days at the Henhouse Studio in Vancouver with no background singers to soften his vocals and no accompanist to
round out the sound of his slide guitar. “It’s just me and the guitars. If I’m doing my job well then it’s going to go quickly and smoothly,” he says. “I always record the guitar and the voice at the same time. We might end up recording three or four versions of the same song, but we’ve still only spent a half an hour.” Phelps’ ﬁngers move nimbly between the frets of his guitar, displaying a versatility that suggests he could play jazz if he wanted, but his voice sounds like it was designed as a blues instrument. His singing is understated and his mouth never opens wide. The album was produced by singer/songwriter Steve Dawson, who suggested Phelps record a solo album. “He knows me as a person and he knows my music,” Phelps says of Dawson. With an encyclopedic musical knowledge, particularly when it comes to blues, the two musicians deal in a shorthand, making their points with obscure musical reference points. “That’s another part of the thread that weaves us together,” Phelps says. “We always know what the other is talking about.” On “Down to the Praying Ground” Phelps vows to live for God, singing, “Lord have mercy, lord forgive me.” Forgiveness is the common thread throughout the album, something Phelps says was a conscious decision. In reading the works of the monks and hermits who chronicled their own struggles with faith in the solitude of the desert many centuries ago, Phelps was struck by the intimate relationship between forgiveness and salvation.

Documentary explores the idea of north Julie Crawford Contributing Writer
IT’S been awhile since you watched those ﬁlmstrips and grainy movies in elementary school: how much do you know about Canada’s north? And how Canadian are you, really, if you haven’t ventured there?
Lynn Valley Road & Mountain Hwy • www.shoplynnvalley.com
NORTHWORDS is a cross-platform CBC documentary project that tells the story of a literary expedition in the summer of 2011 that went above the tree line. The ﬁlm features Shelagh Rogers with Joseph Boyden, Alissa York, Noah Richler, Sarah Leavitt and Rabindranath Maharaj.

CBC broadcaster and activist Shelagh Rogers invited Vancouver-based writer and cartoonist Sarah Leavitt and four other Canadian writers — Alissa York, Joseph Boyden, Rabindranath Maharaj and Noah Richler — to Torngat Mountains National Park in Northern Labrador, located between the Quebec border and the Labrador Sea. Their assignment? Create new works about Canada’s north, using their experiences and the incredible scenery as inspiration. The end product is Northwords, a documentary directed by Geoff Morrison that toured the ﬁlm fest circuit and is now available for purchase as an HD digital download or on DVD (atﬁlmcan.org) or on ebook (houseofanansi.com). The ﬁlm features stunning vistas, some surprising revelations about the north country’s distant and near past, and the reactions of our ﬁve writers as they write about their experiences, cramming for a “performance” at the end of the trip. Leavitt, by all standards a fairly well-travelled Canadian, having lived in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Montreal and Vancouver, calls the short time she spent in the Torngats “a very powerful experience.” She chatted to the News recently about icebergs, polar bears and conquering her fear of small boats. North Shore News: What were your ﬁrst impressions? Sarah Leavitt: The landscape is so dramatic and gigantic — crazy jagged mountains rising up in the water, icebergs — with lots of it untouched. There are deﬁnite places that are Inuit homeland, but there were also places we ﬂew over in the helicopter where no one has ever been. North Shore News: An iceberg was your ﬁrst piece of inspiration? Sarah Leavitt: It was like nothing I had seen on books or in ﬁlms — they’re turquoise and white, really huge. And when you get near them in the boat the air is colder. Amazing. North Shore News: Do you feel it can only help your writing or your sense of patriotism now that you’ve travelled to the far north? Sarah Leavitt: I deﬁnitely felt like it rooted me more in Canada and being Canadian. But it was more about having experiences that really push you, and saying yes to things that are really scary. North Shore News: You wrote a memoir, Tangles: A Story

Picture Day competing for Borsos award From page 20
World Ski and Snowboard Festival since he was a teenager and more recently at the Whistler Film Festival (WFF). This year, Harvey returns to the WFF, with the premiere of Picture Day, the debut feature from Canadian writer-director Kate Melville, which he produced. The road back home has been a long and productive one for the 28-year-old Harvey, who graduated from Whistler Secondary School in 2002 and soon after had to make the tough choice between his two childhood passions: ﬁlmmaking and hockey. Harvey was a successful junior hockey player, having played two years in the B.C. Interior when he was offered the chance to play for an American university. The offer came around the time he was accepted into Capilano University’s ﬁlm program. “I realized I didn’t have a huge future with hockey and that ﬁlm was where I wanted to go and was my passion, so I decided to jump on that,” he says. Having shot homemade ﬁlms with his friends since his pre-teen days, Harvey’s ﬁrst major recognition came when he was still in university, placing third in the 72 Hour Filmmaker Showdown as part of the 2005 World Ski and Snowboard Festival. “As I was growing up, entering the 72 Hour Filmmaker Showdown, I watched guys like Feet Banks and Chili Thom and those kind of guys make these ﬁlms and it made me push the next year to make a better ﬁlm,” he says. After graduating in 2007, another of Harvey’s works, Versus, helped to put him on the radar when it was selected as one of 10 shorts that would be featured at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Student Film Showcase. Harvey credits this time with helping him realize he needed to make the move to Toronto, where he met many of his current friends and mentors in the industry, in order to further his career. Just four months after his short debuted at Canada’s premiere ﬁlm festival, Harvey packed his bags and headed for greener pastures in Ontario. “When I tell people I’m from Whistler, being out here in Ontario, everyone’s ﬁrst reaction is ‘Why did you move?’ and I have to explain: for my industry and for what I do, I need to be here in Toronto,” he says. The move has paid dividends for Harvey, who has since served as production manager on a wide array of projects, eventually leading him to Melville and her refreshingly vibrant high school drama, Picture Day, which was chosen as one of eight WFF pictures vying for top honours in the Borsos Competition for Best Canadian Feature this year. While having his work appear at the fest is nothing new for Harvey — his aggressively local Growing Up Whistler short played at the WFF Closing Gala in 2009 — he’s honoured that Picture Day was not only added to the fest’s lineup, but is also up for its most coveted prize. “When, A: I heard it got accepted to the festival and, B: I heard it was in the Borsos Competition, I think I yelled and screamed for joy. It’s my hometown festival and to be in the Borsos Competition is one of the greatest honours, so I was pretty stoked on it,” he says. While he admits his dream job would be to “get paid to ﬁlm snowboarding out of a helicopter every day of the year,” Harvey has worked extensively as a director and a producer — and likes it that way. “I consider myself a ﬁlmmaker. I don’t really like to say that I’m one thing or the other,” he says. “If I read the script and I fall in love with it and decide this is something that I need to tell and need to be a part of, I’m going to attach myself to the project in whatever role I can, whether it’s directing or producing. I’m going to ﬁnd a role that best suits me for that project.” Besides producing Picture Day, a ﬁlm Harvey called a “kind of rock and roll high school love triangle with a really good vibe,” he is working on several projects that should make him more familiar to Canadians across the country including a series about junior hockey
PICTURE Day, screening at this year’s Whistler Film Festival, features rising star Tatiana Maslany as Claire Paxton, a teenage girl who has all the freedoms of adulthood but none of the responsibilities.
DIRECTOR Kate Melville working on the set of Picture Day. with Canadian producer Ben Murray, a ﬁlm with Degrassi High alum Natty Zavitz called Talk Like a White Boy and writer-director (and former Green Power Ranger) Matt Sadowski-Austin’s The Next Morning. Whistler’s cinematic wunderkind grew up watching ski ﬁlm pioneer Warren Miller’s downhill movies, and stole some of his words of wisdom for other local ﬁlmmakers looking to follow in Harvey’s footsteps: “When I talked to (Miller) about 10 years ago, his advice was to follow my dream and to get out there and shoot. He told me to shoot something every day; to write it, ﬁlm it and edit it every day,” says Harvey. “This is somebody who’s been making ski ﬁlms since 1949 so I thought I should listen to this guy, he’s obviously doing something right.” Picture Day will play in the Borsos competition at the Whistler Film Festival, which runs Nov. 28 to Dec. 2. Visit www. whistlerﬁlmfestival.com for more information. First screening is at the Whistler Conference Centre Screen B on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 5 p.m.

About Alzheimer’s, My Mother and Me. Do you work better with deeply personal
subject matter? Did you ﬁnd being thrown into an alien landscape challenging? Sarah Leavitt: It was challenging. But once I

the landscape were still pretty personal.

Shelagh without thinking about it, then realized that I needed to go on small planes, small boats to get there.
North Shore News: Did you have any camping experience? Sarah Leavitt: I grew up rurally, so I’ve camped. But this wasn’t really hard times: in base camp we had a wooden ﬂoor, a wood stove. We were out in nature but we were always very well protected by people who know the land really well. North Shore News: It’s hard to imagine some of the men in Vancouver going up against bears . . . Sarah Leavitt: I know, these guys are the most manly men ever! They talk about being caught in a blizzard for three days like it’s a normal thing. If anything was going to threaten a guy’s sense of masculinity . . . . North Shore News: How’s your throat singing? Sarah Leavitt: Oh it’s a major skill! (She laughs.) Alissa (York) kicked everybody’s butt. North Shore News: Did you take photographs or did you prefer to sketch? Sarah Leavitt: I did both. I took a lot of photos but my digital camera broke partway through, so I was using my phone. My picture of the polar bear, for example, was a white dot among the rocks, so thankfully there were pros there to document it. North Shore News: Do you feel connected to the other writers on the journey the way summer camp friends do? Sarah Leavitt: We do. Alissa and I shared a tent and I keep in touch with her. I do feel like we got to do something very intense — that bond will always be there.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE
A heartwarming holiday project Down jackets to support Nepali schoolchildren
Manisha Krishnan firstname.lastname@example.org
A North Shore couple has ﬁgured out the secret to being stylish, cozy and charitable this holiday season.
Follow us on Twitter @NSNLook.
Elizabeth Leboe and Lenard Reid recently founded Jackets for Jasper: Heartwarming Down Jackets, a small company that sells lightweight jackets made in Nepal to support Nepali families. The couple’s goal is to put two Nepali children through school. They were inspired on a 2011 trip to the country where they developed a close bond with their trekking guide Kamal Adhikari. “You’re with someone night and day, trekking in these spectacular areas,” said Reid. “We got to know him extremely well.” After the expedition, they were invited to visit Adhikari’s family in a mountain village east of Kathmandu. There, they found their hosts to be warm and generous, in spite of them leading a very modest lifestyle. Adhikari and his wife live in a room the size of a kitchen with no running water. “The average wage is $100 a month, yet they will be the ﬁrst ones to offer their food, their home, anything,” said Reid. Adhikari’s niece Resmi Nagarkoti, a charming ﬁveyear-old girl, is also from the village. Near the end of their visit, Leboe and Reid were asked to sponsor her so that she could get an education. After locating a private school that was equipped with a pool, gym, computer lab and, most importantly, excellent teachers, the pair agreed.

NORTH Vancouver residents Lenard Reid and Elizabeth Leboe founded Jackets for Jasper, a small business through which they will sell down jackets made in Nepal to support Nepali families. The couple was inspired when they visited the nation last year. “The challenge in Nepal is there’s about a 66 per cent illiteracy amongst girls. Even if you attend public school there is a good chance you won’t actually be able to learn to read or write very well,” said Reid. “Everyone in the family knew they just needed to give an opportunity to these children to break the cycle of poverty.” When Leboe and Reid returned to Canada, Adhikari revealed that his wife was pregnant with their ﬁrst-born — a boy that he later asked the couple to name. They settled on Jasper, a tribute to the Rocky Mountains, where they ﬁrst met, and to Nepal’s See Coats page 29

mountainous climate. Knowing that Adhikari would likely have to leave the country to ﬁnd work and support his family, they began brainstorming how they could help. “Rather that writing a cheque, was there any way we could work together where we get him involved in actively helping out his child and his niece?” they asked each other. The couple decided on Jackets for Jasper, recalling that every other shop in Nepal carries high quality GoreTex and down jackets that are suitable for climbing Mount Everest. Adhikari teamed up with a local manufacturer and recently sent over the ﬁrst batch of jackets. Made with 100 per cent goose down, they are water-resistant
and ideal for cold, damp days in the city. Colours include black, teal and magenta; some are plain while others are embroidered. Currently, only adult sizes are available. The couple will be receiving more jackets soon and they’re hoping residents on the North Shore will consider grabbing one, especially because at $85-$95 they are 50 per cent less expensive than the competition. Reid said some businesses have even opted to buy the jackets and distribute them to those in need — a holiday donation that’s effectively doubled. “They get to see their donations on the backs of people who actually need them.” Those who are interested in purchasing jackets can go to jacketsforjasper.com. The company will be hosting open houses so that customers can see the garments ﬁrst hand.

Chad Brownlee stickhandles new career
Country star at one time was top Canucks hockey prospect ■ Chad Brownlee on Boys of Fall Tour with Dallas Smith, Commodore Ballroom, Nov. 29.
Nicholas M. Pescod Contributing Writer
THE decision to walk away from pro hockey wasn’t an easy one, but for former NHL draft pick and country musician Chad Brownlee it was the right one. “The NHL was ﬁrst and foremost on my mind like a lot of Canadian hockey players growing up,” he says. After only a few years in the music industry, the Kelowna B.C., native is on the path to becoming a Canadian country music star. On Nov. 29, Brownlee will be performing in Vancouver at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver as part of his Boys of Fall Tour with Dallas Smith. “I am extremely excited. It’s going to be a hometown show for Dallas and I; being CHAD Brownlee performs at the Commodore Ballroom on Thursday, Nov. 29 on that we are both from B.C.,” Canada Boys of Fall Tour.

Hamilton, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Grand Prairie, Alta., Brownlee says there were plenty of things that inspired him Tweed, Ont., Portage La Prairie, Man., and Kamloops, B.C. to create Love Me or Leave Me. “It’s all been really positive,” he says. “I am fortunate to be “In one song I wrote about my grandfather who passed doing what I am doing right now, to be playing my music in away,” he says. “That’s a song that’s held really close to my front of lots of people.” heart.

began songwriting. “I would sit in my dorm room and I decided to give writing a shot,” he says. “It was more of a musical journal. I would write songs about past or present girlfriends, or my parents or my sister. It was just songs for other people and I wasn’t thinking about pursuing it.” Brownlee received the NCAA Hockey Humanitarian Award after writing a song titled “The Hero I See,” in honour of a local boy named Anthony Ford who lost his battle with leukemia. “He was kind of like a little brother and very inspirational within the community,” Brownlee says. “When he passed away it was a pretty big hit. So I decided to write a song about him and carry on his legacy.” Proceeds from the song raised thousands of dollars for the Anthony Ford Foundation. However, it was during his playing days with the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL that Brownlee really began to lose interest in hockey. “It wasn’t until after the Canucks camp and I was playing in a year in the ECHL is when I decided that I wanted a music career,” he says. “It really did change. For me it’s all about the time you spend every day and if you don’t enjoy that then you’re wasting your time.” “I enjoyed the game of hockey for 99 per cent of my career but it wasn’t until the last little bit that I completely lost the love and something else was growing very quickly. I just took the reckless decision to change paths,” he adds.

Brownlee hasn’t looked back since his decision to leave hockey. In 2010 the Kelowna native released his ﬁrst album titled Chad Brownlee. That same year he was also nominated for the CCMA Rising Star Award and was the winner of the Canadian Country Music Conference Best New Artist Showcase Award. The former Vernon Viper has spent plenty of his life sitting on buses, and says the hours that he spent travelling as a hockey player have prepared him for the life of a travelling musician. “The tour buses are a little bit nicer,” Brownlee explains, “We have bunks to sleep on because we spend so much time on it. But there are so many similarities as well. Your band is your team and you look out for each other.” According to Brownlee the biggest challenge for him has been navigating his way through the music industry. “There isn’t one tunnel or portal that everybody takes to ﬁnd what they call success. It’s ﬁnding out what you are doing it for. At the beginning I said I am doing it for the music and the impact it has on people,” he says. “Sometimes it’s not an easy road and it can be very difﬁcult, especially during the writing process.” “The only person that really determines what success you have in the end is yourself,” he adds.

Baroque ensemble loves to experiment Tafelmusik takes genre to new level with dynamic performances ■ Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra presents The Galileo Project: Music of the Spheres, part of the Early Music Vancouver series, Friday, Nov. 23, 8 p.m. at Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver. Tickets: $42/ $37, visit kaymeekcentre.com.
Erin McPhee email@example.com
WHEN the members of Tafelmusik turn their eyes upwards to scan the night sky, they’re doing more than stargazing; rather, they’re hoping to catch a glimpse of their baroque orchestra’s namesake. The Toronto, Ont.-based ensemble was honoured by the International Astronomical Union by having an asteroid, 197856 Tafelmusik, named after them in light of their efforts to bring history alive in The Galileo Project: Music of the Spheres. “That was very exciting,” says Alison Mackay, who conceived, scripted and programmed the work. “It’s brought us in contact with a whole world of wonderful astronomers that we otherwise might not have had a chance to have contact with,” she adds. The Galileo Project, a co-production with The Banff Centre, was created to mark the 400th anniversary of Galileo Galilei’s development and use of the astronomical telescope and celebrates his and fellow classic astronomers’ ingenuity through a combination of musical performance, science, storytelling and high-deﬁnition cosmic imagery. The orchestra is currently touring The Galileo Project in Western Canada from now until Dec. 1 with a stop in West Vancouver tonight at Kay Meek Centre at 8 p.m. The orchestra will then perform the production in Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo, Saskatoon, Regina and Calgary. Mackay, who’s based in Toronto, has been a member of See Performance page 34

Performance builds around Galileo story From page 33
Tafelmusik for more than 30 years. “It’s a real experience of chamber music,” she says. “It’s a smaller core of musicians, there are 17 of us. Most of the people in the orchestra have been in it a long time. There hasn’t been any turnover in a number of years. You’re able really to build on a shared understanding of the music and the style.” What differentiates Tafelmusik from some other orchestras are the instruments used by players. Wherever possible, members play historical or period instruments, or those set up in the baroque style with gut strings and slightly different ﬁttings. They also use different bows than those used by modern string players, all in an effort to make the kind of sound they believe the composers whose music they’re performing would have had in mind. Mackay, for instance, plays two early forms of double bass, including the violone. “We’re always going back in time a little bit, searching for a vibrant sense of style to make the music sound as if people were
hearing it for the ﬁrst time, the way they would have been in Bach or in Handel’s time,” she says. Mackay has created a number of diverse works for Tafelmusik, including The Four Seasons: A Cycle of the Sun and House of Dreams, which will tour the United States this spring. She’s currently working on a project relating to Mozart’s Vienna. “We have been experimenting over the last dozen years or so with different formats of concerts, putting our music into more of a multicultural context or into a slightly different historical context, perhaps by having a narrator and a scripted aspect to the program,” she says. Prior to her creation of The Galileo Project, Mackay had been interested in experimenting with lighting design and a theatrical set. To accommodate those aspects, she wondered about the possibility of having the orchestra memorize their parts, uncommon in orchestral performances, with the exception of soloists. “Because we’ve played together for so long, I thought that playing without music and without music stands might really

bump us up to a new level,” she says. She decided to ﬁnally test the innovative approach in the lead up to the International Year of Astronomy, marked in 2009 by the United Nations, after Tafelmusik was asked to come on board for a Canadian celebration related to the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s discovery. Two of the members on the Canadian event committee approached Tafelmusik wondering about the prospect of a related cultural performance. “They approached us to see if I might be interested in creating a program that somehow combined our music with the world in which Galileo and Newton and Kepler made their discoveries,” says Mackay. She agreed and the orchestra had the opportunity to workshop The Galileo Project at The Banff Centre. The work premiered in 2009 and has since been performed internationally, including in the United States, China, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand and Australia. The show features a full program of music by Bach, Handel, Monteverdi, Vivaldi and other baroque composers, performed by the Tafelmusik orchestra. “The music is chosen to illustrate the world from which astronomers came,” says Mackay. The most direct contact between music and astronomy lies with Galileo himself, who was a very accomplished lute player. His father composed lute music and his nephews and brothers were professional lutenists in a number of European cities. “One of my colleagues has said that it’s kind of an accident that Galileo himself didn’t become a musician,” says Mackay. At one point in the program, the orchestra’s lutenist, Lucas Harris, takes on the persona of Galileo and plays music written by the astronomer’s younger brother. In addition, narration is provided, drawn from letters and writings from the books of Galileo, and other materials and events from the 17th and 18th centuries linked to astronomy, throughout the performance 80 astronomical images are projected. Mackay is extremely pleased with the success of The Galileo Project, both in the eyes of astronomers, audiences and her fellow musicians. “For the musicians, it places our music in a new and fresh context and allows us to turn a fresh new lens on it,” she says. “The fact that we were able to learn it from memory was just artistically very, very bonding and allowed us to interact with each other with a new excitement.” Prior to tonight’s performance at Kay Meek Centre, Mackay and Tafelmusik’s music director, Jeanne Lamon, will participate in a pre-show discussion with Early Music Vancouver’s associate artistic director Mathew White at 7:15 p.m. in the main theatre.

Dickens’ Women full of mischief and charm
Miriam Margolyes takes on the writer and the man at The Cultch ■ Dickens’ Women at The Cultch until Dec. 1. Tickets: 604-251-1363, thecultch.com.
Jo Ledingham Vancouver Courier
THIS woman would be such a riot at a party.
The star of Dickens’ Women, Miriam Margolyes is a little gnome of a woman, barely ﬁve feet tall, bosomy and with a froth of silvery white curls framing a merry, almost cherubic, face. At just over 70, she has more sparkle in her eyes than a warehouse full of Waterford crystal, more mischief in her smile than a kid with a pocketful of ﬁrecrackers. And, wow, does she know her Dickens. I may never have read a Dickens novel cover to cover; a half-page description of a wart probably did me in. But I might just give Dickens another try after spending an evening with this British actress whose impressive bio includes the Order of the British Empire in 2002 for her services to drama. Margolyes makes a clear distinction: Dickens, the writer, was brilliant; Dickens, the man, was not very nice — a misogynist, amongst other faults. She mocks his oft-repeated gloriﬁcation of young women with bright eyes, bouncing curls, blushing complexions and sweet natures — all of whom turn out to be 17. “I ﬁnd them all rather icky,” she says, twinkling all over. Don’t worry if you’re not up on your Dickens. Solo performer and co-writer (with director Sonia Fraser), Margolyes provides context for each of the characters that she so lovingly crafts and she connects many of them to Dickens’ own history. The highlight of the evening is an extended scene from Oliver Twist. Margolyes, as Mr. Bumble, looks like a fat toad with a lecherous leer as he woos simpering, giddy Mrs. Corney. “Oh, Mr. Bumble, I shall scream,” Mrs. Corney cries in feigned outrage as Mr. Bumble attempts a kiss. “I love doing this scene,” Margolyes confesses, “because it combines sexual and economic greed in the same scene.” Still bubbling over with merriment at 70-odd years, just imagine Margolyes at 17. Dickens would have been enraptured.

Wade Davis winner of major U.K. award 2012 Samuel Johnson Award honours West Van author’s study of 1924 Everest expedition
WADE Davis, born and raised in West Vancouver, won the 2012 Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-ﬁction on Monday for Into the Silence: The Great War, Mallory and the Conquest of Everest, a study of British mountaineer George Mallory’s fatal 1924 climbing expedition on Mt. Everest. Davis, an Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C., specializes in anthropology and ethnobotany. He has been described as “a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all of life’s diversity.” In recent years his work has taken him to East Africa, Borneo, Nepal, Peru, Polynesia, Tibet, Mali, Benin, Togo, New Guinea, Australia, Colombia, Vanuatu, Mongolia and the high Arctic of Nunavut and Greenland. His analysis of Haitian Vodou culture and the process of making zombies, The Serpent and
the Rainbow (1985), became an international bestseller and was made into a Hollywood horror movie by director Wes Craven. Some of Davis’ other books include Rainforest (1998), Light at the Edge of the World (2001), The Lost Amazon (2004), Grand Canyon (2008) and One River (1996), which was nominated for the 1997 Governor General’s Literary Award for Non-ﬁction. The Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction is the richest non-ﬁction prize in the UK, worth £20,000 ($32,000) to the winner. The prestigious award is open to authors of all non-ﬁction books in the areas of current affairs, history, politics, science, sport, travel, biography, autobiography and the arts. The prize money comes from an anonymous sponsor. The six titles on this year’s shortlist were: — Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death and Hope in a Mumbai Slum by Katherine Boo (Portobello Books) — Into the Silence: The Great War, Mallory and the Conquest of Everest by Wade Davis (The Bodley Head) — The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot by Robert Macfarlane (Hamish Hamilton) — The Better Angels of our Nature: A History of Violence and Humanity by Steven Pinker (Allen Lane) — The Spanish Holocaust: Inquisition and

Hollywood Myths feed on the insatiable appetite for scandal
■ Hollywood Myths by Joe Williams, Voyageur Press, 240 pages, $23.99. Scandal and sensationalism have been the twin supports of Hollywood’s reporting for years. The insatiable appetite of the public for gossip about the movers and shakers of the entertainment industry has lead to many rumours being accepted as truth. Author Joe Williams has gathered a wide selection of myths and exposed them for the fabrications they really are but at the same time has also pointed out the truth behind many of them. A classic story is that Rock Hudson and Jim Nabors were secretly wed. The truth lies in the later years when Hudson’s secret gay lifestyle came out and his friendship
REVIEW with Nabors became suspect but there was never any proof of a secret arrangement between them. The wealth that George Lucas received from making Star Wars was only partially
from the ﬁlms because in what was likely one of the shrewdest deals ever made, Lucas retained the rights to the merchandise and ultimately made millions and millions of dollars from toys. Stars from Hollywood’s early days like Charlie Chaplin and Rudolph Valentino are included alongside John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Woody Allen and Tom Cruise. Williams divides his subjects into ﬁve categories: Legendary stars, Odd Couples, the Final Curtain, Mythic Movies, and the Movie Industry. He settles on 56 subjects and provides detailed background information as well as examining the myth in his search for the truth. — Terry Peters

Religious aspect part of Phelps’s musical evolution From page 13 “We are sinners and the way that we receive the grace and light is through forgiveness. Those are the stones that start to form a foundation of the house one would build,” he says. While his recent journey to Christianity didn’t begin in shame or despair, Phelps did have a sense of a ticking clock. “I realized that I was slowly running out of time to ﬁgure it out,” he says, discussing his attempt to untangle his feelings about God and the internal workings of his soul and psyche. The album’s title refers to the biblical story of Jonah’s escape from the belly of a great ﬁsh, an important story for Phelps. “It also has close signiﬁcance for me because of the imagery of turning one’s back to God, and not wanting to do the work, maybe, that was being asked. Being swallowed by the whale, being in complete darkness and having the choice of remaining there or admitting this nugget of truth which was: I actually do want to do this thing. . . . I’m here in the worst place in the world and I still believe and trust. That’s what it is, and getting spit back out and then going back to do the work and not always being completely content and comfortable in doing it, but realizing not to do it would be to deny the truth,” he says. “Also it’s a really short book, so if you or anyone hasn’t read it and would like to, it only takes about 15 minutes.” Growing up in Sumner, Wash., Phelps grew up around music. “Most every day there was some music being played in the evening at home, so it was always around and it was great for me because it made
it appear as though it was the most natural thing for anyone to do,” he says. With about a dozen guitar lessons to help get him started, Phelps is mostly self-taught. Carrying literary inﬂuences ranging from John Steinbeck to Ray Bradbury, the vagabond musician’s words are meant to stand outside popular music. Phelps’s songs tend to have idiosyncratic structures, rarely relying on a chorus or a rhyme scheme. “It’s a safe bet that wordplay probably predates song lyrics,” he says. “I’m equal parts guitar player to songwriter, and because of that I’ve had to spend time trying to ﬁgure out how to write songs in such a way that both of them have equal place and equal balance. That’s an unusual thing, it’s not unique but it’s unusual,” he says. “So I realized then I wasn’t going to get much help by looking at songwriters. I also realized then that if I wasn’t going to look at songwriters, who was I going to look at for example and inspiration in terms of what to do with words and the answer was fairly obvious, that was the poets.” The religious aspect of the new album may seem jarring, but for Phelps, it’s part of his evolution as a musician and a person. “It’s done a lot of good for me,” he says of his return to church. “Before Christ, after Christ, during Christ, it’s so old. There’s so much to study and so much to learn. . . . Nothing on the outside of what I’ve been doing has ever been something that needed changed or ﬁxed. I fully and ﬁrmly believe and have always believed in the arts in general, music speciﬁcally. It’s the way that I move through the world.”

SLEEP Stem Cell SNORING?APNEA?
As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D. Often snorers also have sleep apnea which causes being tired all day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (per FDA website). Millions suffer needlessly and can stop their nightly ordeals.
To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep #23 through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS ! For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS !It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are #63 even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage. Women witnessing the effects of Bell Stem Cell Activator:!Women looking for anti-aging help! We all want to slow down aging. After using a bottle of Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 my skin seemed smoother and brighter. My hair looked healthier. It seems to have a cleansing effect. I’m delighted. Leona McCormick, 50, Clgary, AB ! All around healing effect! The first thing I noticed after starting Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 was that my skin feels firmer and stronger. My friends commented that my skin looks more vibrant. My doctor at my yearly physical told me that my blood pressure is significantly lower. Many good things are happening.

CHARLTON, Evelyn Gladys Louise July 1, 1918 - Nov 16, 2012 Mom passed into the light about 9:30 AM Friday. A femur fracture in late September began a downhill path from which she wasn’t able to recover though she battled valiantly, as always. Daughters Carroll ’Holly’ (Bill) and Melody ’Dea’, Grandchildren Joey, Abby and Graham, Great Grandchildren Corbin and Braden will all miss Nana dearly but can only be grateful that she is once again with those she loves on the other side and at peace. As she wished, we will hold a small Celebration of Life in Spring 2013. As the CNIB was significant in making her latter years enjoyable, if you wish, donations to the CNIB in her memory would be appreciated. Be at peace sweet soul.

She is predeceased by her parents Giuseppe and Rosa Lena Colombina. Pina was an amazing wife, mother and gramma who always put family first. She was caring and compassionate to all who knew her and always willing to help in any time of need. Whether it was through travelling, holidaying at the cabin, helping with Adam and Emily, socializing with her friends or cheering on her Giants, Pina was an example of how to enjoy life to the fullest. In her final weeks, Ron showed what true love means by caring for Pina with the utmost compassion. A special thanks to Dr. Klimo, Dr. Smiljanic, Dr. Sugar and all the oncology nurses at the LGH chemo clinic especially Julie and Gabby, who helped care for Pina these last 5 years.

MONTAGUE, Barbara Diane Nov 16, 2012 With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our Barbie on November 16th. Carrying on is her husband of 50 years Vic, who cared for her with so much love, and her boys Brent with his wife Lisa and daughter Kate, and Brian with his wife Vivian and daughters Jordyn and Sydney. Her granddaughters loved "Dabumm" so very much and they were truly her pride and joy. Barb is also survived by her loving sister Elaine (Jim), and brothers Brent (Jill) and Les; Melanie, Brian, Sean, Kate, Travis and Nicole will miss their very special aunt. Barb’s life was also rich with wonderful friends and experiences from her city life and summers spent at Boundary Bay, Osoyoos and Wood Lake where she became a rowing icon in her boat Clementine. Many happy times were spent at the lake where Barb always made you feel so very welcome. Everyone else came first with Barb, and just about the only thing she ever did for herself was bravely going back to school (after raising her family) and graduating from Emily Carr School of Art to become a successful painter; her art lives on and graces the walls of corporate Vancouver. Barb lived with great love for all her family and friends, and always celebrated the specialness in each one of us. Her world came to revolve around Jordyn, Sydney, and baby Kate. They were the lights of her life and made every day for her a joy beyond measure. Dabumm was always ready with a smile, a hug, and often a chocolate chip cookie. Barb requested that there be no service but that her family and friends gather and have a party, which we will do on what would have been her 70th birthday next summer - time and place to be advised at a later date. Please, in lieu of flowers, a donation to either the Children’s Hospital or the Canadian Cancer Society would be something she would have appreciated.

She was predeceased by her cherished husband, Edward Spray and beloved daughter Debora.

Mom grew up in upper Lonsdale, North Vancouver, and spent many years raising her family in Edgemont Village and West Vancouver. She and Dad enjoyed much of their retirement at their cabin on Deka Lake in the Cariboo, which became a joyful family gathering place for many years.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to THE ROAD

THE Acura RDX is redesigned for 2013 with top-to-bottom reﬁnements that make it a much softer, smoother, more comfortable and elegant ride. It is available at North Shore Acura in the Northshore Auto Mall.
2013 Acura RDX
The maturation of the RDX
Columnist Brendan McAleer reviews the 2013 Volkswagen CC in next week’s Rev.
THE Acura RDX was always a different kind of a car.
Designed to provide great performance and superb handling, the previous generation RDX was perhaps a bit too aggressive in its approach to maximize performance while somewhat compromising comfort and luxury. The turbocharged engine and European-like handling provided immense driving pleasure for an SUV but this dynamic package did not deliver as much “luxury
Behind The Wheel David Chao
value” to traditional, upscale SUV customers who were more drawn to softer,
smoother riding vehicles such as the Lexus RX 350. For 2013, Acura decided that it was time for the RDX to become more mature. The redesigned 2013 RDX features reﬁnements to every aspect to the vehicle. The exterior lines are softer, the interior is more plush, the drivetrain is smoother and the engine is more powerful yet more efﬁcient. Most important of all, the new RDX looks and feels much more expensive. Acura hopes these reﬁnements will welcome a whole new generation of
young customers into its comfy yet stylish mode of transportation. Design As already mentioned, the 2013 RDX’s image is more mature with understated elegance. The smoother exterior lines are partnered with traditionally sensible colours. The design in general is much more upscale and gives that luxurious feel that was lacking in the 2012 version. The design is unmistakably similar to the popular MDX model.

Robots are (gulp) better drivers than humans IN the future, your car will drive itself. And thank goodness for that. Forget electric vehicles, forget hydrogen fuel-cell experiments, forget about F1-style Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems adapted from spidery racecars and afﬁxed to the ol’ family crossover. The Next Big Thing isn’t going to be a radical change to the internal combustion engine — that will come, but at a glacial creep. Instead, the next revolution to hit the automobile will be autonomy: ﬂying cars are out of the question, but autopilot is on the way. In fact, it’s pretty much already here.

Updated interior feels much more upscale From page 53

THE hard plastics that used to dominate the interior of the RDX have mostly been replaced with softer, more elegant materials that give the cabin a much richer feel.
Inside, the grown-up design continues with a pleasant combination of curvy lines and ﬂowing elements. The hard plastics that dominated the cabin of the previous model have been mostly replaced by softer, more elegant materials. This is probably the single most noticeable aspect of the RDX’s maturation process. The cabin now feels like it came from a car that costs twice as much. Performance The revamped 2013 RDX did away with the 240 horsepower, 2.3-litre turbocharged inline four and replaced it with a 273 h.p., 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V6 that’s already widely used in the Acura lineup. It’s mated to a new six-speed automatic transmission which gets 10.7-litres/100 kilometres in the city and 7.3 l/100 km on the highway, which is a vast improvement over the 2012 number; 12.4 l/100 km city, 9.8 l/100 km highway. This is also done with a new all-wheel drive system which is lighter to help aid the fuel economy numbers. The new V-6 is much more reﬁned cruising around town and handles the highway curves comfortably, though it
does not have the sportiness of the previous model. Also on that note, the suspension is softer and smoother, again moving away from the more aggressive nature of its predecessor. The only disappointment is the steering feel, which — while accurate in its ability to track the road — is light and somewhat artiﬁcial. It will likely please the average Lexus-type SUV drivers (which is Acura’s targeted competitor anyways) but it will not steal sales away from BMW or Audi owners who are used to more road feel. Environment Even though the actual amount of added interior space is not that much, the interior feels more spacious. Looking about the cabin, the Acura meets all the prerequisites for an entrylevel luxury vehicle with no overwhelmingly unusual features. All ﬁve seats are plush while providing adequate support and comfort. The spacy feel is consistent throughout as legroom and headroom are plentiful for the average adult in the rear seats. Acura also reﬁned the RDX’s technology interface. Many features such as

Self-guided cars may help keep elderly drivers on road
From page 56
that human beings, by and large, are a bunch of drooling imbeciles. I should know: I’m one. In polite company, you’d never guess it. Get me behind the wheel and I speed a little bit. I get annoyed at people who don’t know how to use a roundabout properly. I take my eyes off the road to ﬁddle with the stereo. Google’s chief-of-staff has previously called human drivers a bug in the system — our feeble squishy minds are often the weak link in machines that are safer than ever these days. To be honest, this declaration got up my nose a little bit. The only reason driving was poor was because the bar was set so low for getting a driver’s licence. If people regarded driving as more of a privilege than a right, and were required to take the same sort of thorough testing that a motorcycle owner is required to, the roads would be a much safer place. No need for robo-cars then? If so, then why the huge demand for safety aids like lane departure warning, collision warning and blind-spot monitoring? Why did I almost get hit by a texting driver when merging onto the highway at 22nd street? With the best will in the world, humans are unlikely to become better drivers as the years progress. Instead, we are becoming more distracted as a population, glued to our smartphones, incapable of resisting sneaking a peek when they buzz with an incoming text. As we pay less attention, our cars pay more. This week, I was driving a new Ford Escape Platinum — a small crossover that’s a Canadian favourite, widely available and affordable. Not only was this little trucklet equipped with blind spot monitoring and parking sensors, it also had a cross-trafﬁc sensor that can spot approaching cars when
backing out into trafﬁc. Manoeuvering the Escape in a busy supermarket parking lot, I was so surrounded by bings, bongs and beeps, I half expected the dashboard to ﬂash “TILT.” My fault for parking it myself — like other Fords, the Escape can parallel park itself with the push of a button. Moreover, cane the little crossover too hard through a wet corner and its socalled Curve Control System (sounds like a girdle to me) can gently apply the brakes to prevent crashing. Goose the throttle in a modern car, and a drive-by-wire system senses the request for torque and doles out power from the engine based on what the traction control reports, what the steering angle is and, in the case of even a sporty hatch like the Mazdaspeed3, will even restrict the horsepower based on gear choice. Systems like collision mitigation can instantly sense how much brake pressure should be applied to avoid an approaching object and will apply force regardless of how lightly you touch the pedal. Cars equipped with automatic cruise control or similar systems are capable of stopping the vehicle entirely, regardless of driver input. Further mission creep from the safety systems now includes things like Acura’s Lane Keep Assist, which will gently nudge the steering wheel back into line if you drift out of your lane. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-class will purportedly have a self-steering system that will stay in the lane through a curvy road — though you’ll have to keep your hands on the wheel. With robot-controlled racecars pipping human drivers at the racetrack and the prestigious Pikes Peak run, in the manner of Deep Blue besting Kasparov, it’s not just Prii bumbling around at low speeds either. Autonomous cars aren’t only safer drivers
The Winter Maintenance Plan
than human-operated ones, they’re faster too. This coming automation of one of the great transportation freedoms used to bother me quite a bit. But think of what a self-driving car would mean for an elderly person who faces having their licence cancelled. Think of the work that could be accomplished by those shuttling into town on a lengthy and futile commute. Think of the risk-reduction that takes the wheel out of a drunk driver’s hands, even if someone doesn’t grab his keys. It’ll take a while, perhaps more like 10
years away than ﬁve. Soon enough though, your car will be able to ﬁnd its way home — just like a faithful horse, rider asleep in its saddle, slowly picking the path back to the barn. For those of us who still want to drive, it shouldn’t be too hard to pull HAL’s fuse.

and intuitive to use. While the luxuries are nice, the RDX is still a functional SUV and needs to fulﬁll the utility portion of the title. The rear door opens high offering sufﬁcient head clearance to the expansive opening. The low ﬂoor also aids loading and unloading and its 739 litres of cargo space allows you to carry more than average SUVs in this category. But suppose you need a bit more space, the rear seats split 60/40 and fold down conveniently with two releases for each seat; one on the shoulder of the seat and another just inside the cargo area. The seats fold down to increase the space to a generous 2,178 litres. Features The 2013 RDX starts at $42,935 with an available Technology Package adding $3,000 to the asking price. Standard equipment includes four-wheel ABS with EBD and brake assist, front and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, tire pressure monitoring system with location and pressure indicators, Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, eight-way power adjustable driver seat, four-way adjustable front passenger seat, heated front seats, ﬁve-inch colour information display, dual-zone automatic climate control system, Bluetooth with steering wheel-mounted controls,
SMS text message function and rearview camera. The Technology Package adds an eight-inch LED backlit VGA display, navigation system with Voice Recognition, 410watt premium audio system, GPS-linked, solar-sensing, dual-zone automatic climate control system and power tailgate. Fuel efﬁciency numbers are 10.7 l/100 km city and 7.3 l/100 km highway. Thumbs up Quality interior materials and the easy-to-use electronics make the cabin a ﬁne place to spend time, while under the hood improvements make the 2013 RDX vastly improved compared to its predecessor. The 2013 version simply feels more expensive. Thumbs down The changes to the engine and transmission may be welcome but the new electric steering lacks feedback. Not much else to complain about. The bottom line The new RDX represents a marked improvement over the previous model and it now represents a great luxury value that could really hurt the competitors’ sales.

New Subaru AWD wagon on the way A treasure trove of essential automotive quick hits:
Drawing board 2014 Subaru Forester: Heading to dealer showrooms next spring is the latest generation of Subaru’s all-wheel-drive wagon. Although the Forester’s 170 horsepower four-cylinder carries over, a new optional engine will be a turbocharged version of the 200 h.p. 2.0-litre four-cylinder from the BRZ sports coupe. Output is rated at 250 h.p. and 258 foot-pounds of torque. This appears to indicate that the turbo could be available for the BRZ at some point. Auto trivia ■ Although the Duryea brothers, Charles and Frank, are credited with creating the ﬁrst American automobile in 1893, it was Ransom E. Olds who made the world’s ﬁrst mass-produced car eight years later. ■ After Henry Ford’s ﬁrst car company failed in 1902, he went on to make automobiles under the Cadillac brand.
SUBARU’S all-wheel-drive Forester is due for a redesign and the new 2014 model, photo above, should be in showrooms by next spring. If you’re looking for something a little more eccentric, a nicely restored 1966 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible, photo above left, recently sold on eBay for less than US$10,000.
What’s up, auto doc? Many manufacturers are now beginning to equip their vehicles — usually, but not limited to, hybrids — with low-rolling-resistance tires. Instead of ﬁlling the tires to the desired 32 or 34 pounds per square inch, the new strain of tires can take up to 100 p.s.i. (check your owner’s manual for speciﬁcs). The extra pressure makes them easier to roll since the sidewalls don’t compress as much under the weight of the vehicle. In a regular car, that would also mean a harsher ride and possibly unpredictably handling, but cars designed for low-rolling-resistance tires have suspension that are designed around a harder tire. And although you might have heard of your neighbour overinﬂating his tires to achieve a similar effect, keep in mind that tires that are not designed for added pressure could become unstable — and dangerous — and will most likely wear out sooner, completely obliterating any fuel savings you might think you’re realizing. Still, tires are developing all the time and many manufacturers have low-rolling-resistance tires that can be retroﬁtted to cars that never came with them. * Aside from the air pressure, tread compound and pattern can be modiﬁed to provide less rolling resistance. Share your tips with the Unbeatable prices on top name brands like Michelin, BF Goodrich, Firestone, Toyo and more. Auto Doc at shiftweekly.com using the contact form. eBay watch 1966 Volkswagen Convertible, sold, US$9,100: This ragtop bug is literally a classic example of an affordable way to get involved in the collector-car hobby. Most of the expensive restoration work — a refresh of the air-cooled engine and the installation of a new convertible top — has already been completed. The rust-free body and interior also seem more than acceptable. All that the new owner needs to do is to go out and have fun with his or her new toy. Visit ebaymotors.com.

looking to settle into a luxury small SUV. Inﬁniti EX35 Starting at $39,900, the EX is cheaper but is also a little smaller (especially in the rear legroom area). It is, however, more posh than the RDX and it boasts slightly better handling. The 3.5-litre V-6 produces 297 h.p. while using 12.3 l/100 km in the city and 8.5 l/100 km on the highway. If cargo space is less of a concern and you desire a more exhilarating commute, then the Inﬁniti is a notable alternative. Volvo XC60 For those needing more cargo space the XC60 comes up trumps with 873 litres of cargo capacity. At $38,950, the Volvo’s starting price is also lower than the RDX, however the base 3.2-litre inline six-cylinder trades a little horsepower with only 240 h.p. Also, the added weight hurts the fuel economy numbers: 11.2 l/100 km city and 7.8 l/100 km highway. The only issue is the Volvo brand no longer represents the same level of luxury or performance as other brands such as BMW and Lexus.

WHAT’S new, what’s hot in the automotive aftermarket:
WIPE New promises to keep your car’s non-metal surfaces looking fresh.
Keep it looking new If your vehicle is ﬁve years old, or older, you might have noticed fading on various non-metal surfaces such as bumpers, headlight covers and various trim parts. What’s more, many products currently on the market really don’t seem to do a great job of restoring these surfaces. Wipe New has been speciﬁcally formulated to completely
refresh these areas. The manufacturer states that one application will maintain their as-new appearance for years. Each complete kit includes three ounces of product plus applicator cloths, headlight applicator, polishing block, detail brush and protective gloves (enough to do two vehicles). If Wipe New performs as claimed, the US$36 price is likely worth every penny. Check it out for yourself at wipenew.com. Please tell us it runs! It does! We’re not sure what you would do with a fully operational V-8 engine that’s built to 1/4 scale, other than marvel at the builder’s ingenuity. Gary Conley of Conley Precision Engines has been making them for more than 30 years and his latest Stinger 609 has to be seen and heard to be believed. The ﬁve kilogram V-8 displaces 100 cubic centimetres or 6.09 cubic inches (hence the name) and is available in naturally aspirated or supercharged conﬁgurations. Each engine features a dry-sump lubrication system that uses a separate reservoir instead of a traditional oil pan, and an ignition system that works off a 12-volt starter motor. Output is rated at 5.5 horsepower for the standard V-8 and nine horsepower for the supercharged version. Prices start at US$5,700 ($7,400, supercharged V-8).

Sleep in a (truck) bed For many years, Pitman Products International has been making AirBedz inﬂatable mattresses that have become popular with pickup owners who use their vehicles for a variety of outdoor activities. The company’s latest version, called the AirBedz Lite, is available for your truck’s regular- or short-bed box, but is constructed using PVC vinyl instead of the original version’s heavy-duty cloth and comes with a separate electric air pump (the cloth model comes with a built-in pump) that inﬂates the product to a 30 centimetre depth. A stowage bag and emergency repair kit are also included. At US$130, the AirBedz Lite costs $80 less than the original’s US$210 price tag. Check out the entire product line and accessories at truckairbedz.com. This is a shocker There are numerous products on the market that will cover up unwanted smells in your vehicle associated with pets, kids, cigarette smoke, rotten food, skunk spray, water damage and worse. However, one application of Auto Shocker promises to completely eliminate any and all offensive stinky smells for good. Apparently this product is the choice of professional auto detailing shops and used car dealers. Auto Shocker’s primary ingredient is chlorine dioxide that uses oxygen to break up odour molecules. A single packet of Auto Shocker sells for US$25, or four packets for US$75. All the details and ordering info are available at autoshocker.com.
