Two die in Lions Gate Bridge crash

Northbound car hits West Vancouver Blue Bus; bridge closed for 6 hours James Weldon

TWO men are dead after a horrific late-night crash on the Lions Gate Bridge Wednesday. The victims, 20 and 21 years old, were heading north in the bridge’s middle lane just before midnight when they lost control and spun into an oncoming West Vancouver Blue Bus, according to police. Another vehicle also got involved when it apparently tried to avoid the initial collision, but did not suffer serious damage. Emergency crews extracted the victims from the wreckage. One was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was rushed to hospital, but medical staff were unable to save him. Both men were from Richmond. Three people from the bus were also taken in for treatment with non-lifethreatening injuries. The other 12 passengers were reportedly uninjured. The crossing was closed for the remainder of the night while analysts tried to piece together the events that led to the crash. “The early indication is speed was a factor due to the extensive damage to the vehicle,” said Const. Tammy Khorram, a spokeswoman for the WVPD. No names have been released while investigators attempt to reach the victims’ families.

Lighthouse Park killer pleads guilty to manslaughter Jane Seyd

A man who was released from a forensic psychiatric hospital less than six months before his common-law wife was found dead of multiple stab wounds in West Vancouver’s Lighthouse Park has pled guilty to manslaughter in her death.

STACY Chala, communications manager at Capilano Suspension Bridge, gets a sneak peak at the holiday light display. Hundreds of thousands of lights decorate the bridge and the park’s Cliffwalk. The lights will be officially turned on tomorrow, Dec. 1, and stay on to Jan. 5. Proceeds from admission will be donated to the B.C. Firefighters’ Burn Fund.

Alexander Lawrence LaGlace, 48, entered the plea Thursday morning before B.C. Supreme Court Justice Terry Schultes near the end of a trial on a charge of seconddegree murder. In pleading guilty to manslaughter, LaGlace has admitted killing Tammy Cordone, 43, whose body was found in a tent in the West Vancouver park on May 19, 2009, but not that he intended to kill her. LaGlace will be sentenced in February, after completion of a psychiatric report. It was LaGlace himself who called 9-1-1 in the early morning hours to report that someone had killed Cordone. Police who first arrived at the campsite that day found Cordone’s body in the tent where the homeless couple had been camping. See Man page 3

Meeting hears options for rec centre

Seniors want Silver Harbour open during Harry Jerome rebuild Brent Richter

THE City of North Vancouver has narrowed its options down to three for a badly needed rebuild of the Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre and surrounding public lands. The city held an open house at the Silver Harbour Seniors’ Activity Centre Wednesday night to brief the public on the options, answer questions and listen to ideas from attendees. The new complex will feature the existing ice rink and a refurbished Mickey McDougall rec centre, a new seniors’ centre, aquatics facility, multi-purpose and administrative space, a new elevated playing field with parking underneath and

a possible new home for Flicka Gymnastics and, very likely, condo buildings. The city’s options A, B and C, each offer differing layouts, costs and construction schedules. While there wasn’t a runaway favourite option at Wednesday’s meeting, there were a number of prevailing opinions. Among the most oft-repeated by attendees, who were almost exclusively seniors and members of Silver Harbour Centre, is that the seniors’ needs must be met. “Something that . . . is a priority for Silver Harbour is not to close our building during the process of reconstruction,” said Annwen Loverin, executive director of Silver Harbour. “We have many people who rely on Silver Harbour as a lifeline. We have many active seniors here as well as vulnerable seniors and we feel that the programs and services we provide are health-giving and lifegiving.” For that, option B would be most ideal, as it would allow most of the buildings to stay open and offer services while their replacements are built, according to Richard White, deputy city manager. Others stressed the need for adding more space

to the seniors’ centre, which is expected to share space with other groups within the overall facility. “We’re really jammed here. We’re turning people away. Our courses are completely booked and we have an aging population,” one woman said. Pool users urged the city to include a 50metre pool instead of the 25-metre one originally planned. “I’m a swimmer. I’ve been to so many different pools outside of North Van that I see that pools in North Van suck,” said the only youngster to approach the mic, drawing laughs and applause from the crowd. Other pool users noted the city is missing out on hosting large scale swim meets, which are lucrative for local businesses, by going with a 25metre pool. Council has a ballpark cost estimate for the facilities of around $70 million, and the city is hoping to offset about 50 per cent of the cost by allowing residential development either above the recreation buildings, or in separate towers located on the grounds between Lonsdale Avenue and St. George’s Avenue. To generate that revenue would

require about 350,000 square feet of condos. The city was able to build its new library without going to taxpayers by trading its construction for density for developers. Still, several at the meeting urged council to go ahead with rebuilding Harry Jerome but without the dense development entirely. “It’s easy enough to get drunk on developer dollars. It’s happening too much all over the Lower Mainland,” said one nearby resident. Council does have some money set aside in reserves, which offers some flexibility to funding a new Harry Jerome, but not nearly enough to fund the whole project, White said. Since the city began collecting feedback on the options earlier in the fall, about 400 surveys have come in, with options A and B being the most preferred so far. Council will continue taking the surveys and feedback on the city website at until Monday. Staff will report back to council in the new year with a summary of the feedback and options for future steps. If all goes well, construction on a new Harry Jerome Centre could begin within two to five years, White said.

Smoke without fire

A fire truck stopped on Parkgate Avenue Tuesday morning and appeared to be on fire. While Engine 2 from the Lynnmour Fire Hall was eventually towed for repairs, it was a radiator issue that created the appearance of smoke.

An autopsy revealed she had been stabbed 18 times in the chest. LaGlace was a suspect early in the investigation, but police were unsuccessful in gaining his confession until launching an undercover operation nine months later. LaGlace confessed to killing Cordone as he was riding in a wiretapped car with an undercover officer posing as a crime boss. In audiotapes of those wiretaps played during the trial, LaGlace talked about how Cordone was stabbed in the chest “probably 10 or 15 times.” LaGlace told the undercover officer there was no evidence because he had got rid of all Cordone’s belongings and threw the knife used to stab Cordone into the bush. “No one knows nothing. You’re the first one I ever told this to,” LaGlace said. In other wiretapped conversations, LaGlace had told the undercover officer on the phone that when he got bored “people disappear into the spirit world.” “I’m a killer,” he said on the wiretapped phone conversation. “Just kidding . . . I like messing with people’s minds.” In another call he told the undercover officer he “just wants to kill someone again.” Outside the court on Thursday, Crown prosecutor Nicole Gregoire described the manslaughter plea as “a reasonable and safe outcome” in the case. She noted in order to prove second-degree murder, the Crown would have to prove the reliability of LaGlace’s statements to the undercover officer, which were made “with a previous history of substance abuse and psychiatric issues.” Some of the statements were also made while LaGlace was drunk or on drugs. According to two reports by the British Columbia Review Board, LaGlace was released from the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Port Coquitlam less than six months before the killing after the board concluded there was no reason to keep him in the mental hospital despite his “lengthy and significant history of mental disturbance” including paranoid schizophrenia and addiction to numerous drugs including crack cocaine. The board concluded that beyond LaGlace’s history of threats, kicking another patient and possession of weapons “the accused has no history of violence and certainly none involving actual harm to others.” However a psychiatrist also warned if LaGlace continued abusing drugs, LaGlace would likely, “relapse to overt psychosis including paranoia and fear of others . . . it is in those circumstances that the risk of future antisocial behaviour becomes most prominent.”

WV garbage pickup moves to every 2nd week Jeremy Shepherd

GARBAGE trucks will be picking up cans from West Vancouver homes about half as frequently next April following a unanimous vote by council Monday. Besides biweekly trash pickup, the district also moved to ban food scraps from garbage bags in a bid to increase the use of green cans, according to engineering services manager Phil Bates. “It’s a matter of getting the word out to our public that this is coming,” Bates said. Organics and blue box recycling will continue to be picked up

once a week. Council authorized spending $380,000 on the green cans last April following a successful pilot project. Bates credited the program with cutting garbage collection in June and July of this year by nine per cent. That reduction was accomplished with approximately 38 per cent participation, according to Bates. The move to ban food scraps from garbage is also an attempt to stay one step ahead of Metro Vancouver, who will likely enact similar rules once each municipality in their jurisdiction has alternate organic pickup methods available, according to Bates. Engineering director Raymond Fung promised the district would not resort to “draconian measures,” such as opening up garbage bags and examining their contents to see if residents are obeying

the bylaw. West Vancouver residents can now put six cans of yard trimmings on the curb, including the green can. “I would say to people they better start learning to manage their own yard waste,” said Mayor Michael Smith, who said some residents line their curbs with yard trimmings. The new pickup system is projected to boost costs by $35 per single-family unit, bringing the total cost to $275. If the current system were maintained, the increase would be $41, according to Bates. For multi-family units, the increase will be slightly less than $9. See Fuel page 5

Fuel costs climbing while newsprint revenue declines From page 1

BANK security camera footage released by police appears to link Richard Earl Rupert, 56, to scams of seniors in New Westminster this month and in West Vancouver three years ago.

Police seek wanted man James Weldon

A prolific con artist who is accused of targeting seniors in a string of scams across Canada — and who has been of special interest to West Vancouver police in the past — appears to have resurfaced in New Westminster. Richard Earl Rupert, 56, was named a person of interest in an April 2008 incident in which a man approached a 90-year-old West Vancouver man on Marine Drive, told him he was a family member in need of money, and convinced the older man to withdraw and hand over a large sum of cash. The stranger then vanished. Rupert has allegedly defrauded seniors in communities across the country using a similar ruse. More than 10 warrants have been issued for his arrest on theft, robbery, break-and-enter, fraud and other charges, and in 2010, he was featured on America’s Most Wanted. On Wednesday, New Westminster police announced they were looking for a man they said had stolen $240 from an elderly woman Nov. 21 after telling her he was her son and convincing her to take him to her home. They believed the same man had pulled off a similar scam in the community Jan. 2, pretending to be a needy relative in order to persuade an elderly woman to given him $1,600 from her bank account. New Westminster investigators put out an image of the suspect taken from a bank security camera. The photo bears a striking resemblance to Rupert. West Vancouver police alerted the force to that fact later in the day. Rupert is Caucasian, roughly five feet six inches tall, with short, dirty-blond or grey hair and a receding hairline. He has a reddish complexion, hazel eyes, prominent cheekbones and

is usually clean shaven. Polite and well spoken, Rupert often visits bingo halls, bed and breakfasts, motels and hostels. He is known to use a variety of aliases, usually with the first name Richard. Between January 2008 and November 2009, he reportedly approached 20 victims ranging in age from 78 to 95, in each case presenting himself as a relative — often a nephew — in need of money for travel, car repairs or rent. Anyone with information is asked to contact the WVPD at 604-925-7300.

The soaring price of diesel, the late repeal of the Harmonized Sales Tax, and the decline of newsprint in recycling boxes have all driven up the costs of collecting garbage and recycling, according to Bates. Between 2009 and 2012, the price of diesel jumped from approximately 95 cents a litre to more than $1.40. While the cost of the GST was recovered in a 100 per cent rebate, only 75 per cent of the HST cost is recovered. Providing fewer pickups will result in higher diversion rates, according to Bates, who discussed the challenges in reaching a 70 per cent waste diversion rate by 2015. The district diversion rate shot up between 2003 and 2009, going from 42 per cent to 57 per cent. Eliminating garbage bound for landfills has proved difficult since then, with the diversion rate stalling at 58 per cent since 2010. Coun. Mary-Ann Booth asked about dealing with animal waste. “There is really no legal alternative for it,” Bates said, after his suggestion of pet owners dealing with the waste on their own property was rejected. “Metro Vancouver turns a blind eye to it.”

Stop with the ads T

HE numbers don’t look good for Premier Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals. Not the polling numbers, bleak though they remain for the Liberals, but the gloomy numbers released this week by Finance Minister Mike de Jong. Kevin Falcon, de Jong’s predecessor, forecast a $1-billion deficit for the financial year ending March 31, 2013. This for a government that had pledged to balance the books before the next election. Wednesday, de Jong told the province its deficit had grown by 50 per cent in the past six months. Specifically, we’re staring a deficit of $1.47 billion in the face, and this despite de Jong’s previously announced austerity measures. There are obvious reasons. One is the continuing decline in revenues from natural gas, now projected to drop

some $250 million this year. Demand is down, prices are down, therefore tax revenue is down. Same situation with coal, leading to a decline of $144 million in forecasted revenue. These are market forces that are outside of direct government control, and we have some sympathy for a government trying to make ends meet while forecast revenue vanishes. But we’d have a lot more sympathy for Clark and Co. if they stopped spending our money on television ads to tell us what a great place we all live in. Gordon Campbell, in his last year on the job spent $17.5 million on advertising. Clark has spent close to $64 million in two years. We would rather see efforts to balance the budget that start in the premier’s office, than get another geography lesson on where Canada starts.


Waterfront plan should include water access Dear Editor: I have just viewed the options for the foot of Lonsdale and Lot 5 developments. I can’t believe it. Why would we use prime waterfront land for a museum and an art gallery — even a college? These are interior activities. They could go anywhere. What is most important about this site is to let people access the water. I don’t mean getting in a 42-foot boat and running across to Coal Harbour. There are plenty of private marinas that support this activity. I mean small boats with regular people getting on the water and enjoying it as the resource that belongs to all of us. I recognize that the harbour is busy with commercial and commuter traffic; however we can use creative means to direct recreational boating channels

for kayakers, rowers, dragon boaters and other small craft. We should seriously be considering a community based water sport centre that houses dragon boats, First Nations canoes, rowing and kayaking programs run by community groups for the use of groups and individuals. Imagine the best of Granville Island and Jericho Beach in one place. Yes, there is a SeaBus. Yes, there is a shipyard. Yes, there are port facilities. We should still have public access to the ocean. Our waterfront has largely been conceived as a concrete cliff — removing people from the water, not inviting them to it. Between Ambleside and Cates Park where can a person actually access the water to get their feet wet or watch the kids try to hold back the tide with their

dams or wobble around on a paddle board? How about a “real accessible” beach? Too pie in the sky? Look directly south across the harbour! Right beside Ballantyne Pier — one of the busiest container ports in the harbour — is a real beach. Have we so forgotten that boating and access to water is part of the community’s history that we focus on saving pieces of our shipbuilding heritage, but do not actually let people access the water? Let’s give this space and all of our public waterfront lands a big rethink. How might they become a real waterfront for you and I to use in order to explore the natural resource we collectively own? Heather Drugge, North Vancouver

Care worker flu shots most effective tool in limiting infections

Dear Editor: I wish to clarify inaccuracies made by the B.C. Nurses Union representative in your Nov. 16 story, Nurses Object to New Rules on Flu Shots. All health-care workers are required to have flu shots, or wear an approved mask as part of the new province-wide policy. This includes doctors, nurses, volunteers, students, contractors and vendors: not just nurses, as the union rep stated. The B.C. Medical Association and physicians on medical advisory committees in our hospitals are strongly supportive of the influenza vaccination policy. These physicians groups, as do many others in health care, believe they have an ethical duty to prevent transmission of infection to vulnerable people. It is wrong to suggest that those who are pregnant cannot safely be vaccinated; in fact, influenza vaccination is strongly


recommended and provided free to pregnant women because they are at higher risk for infection and can infect their newborns, who are also at risk. People with egg allergies can be safely vaccinated. It is wrong to suggest that improving hospital cleanliness and hand washing would be as effective as vaccination in preventing the spread of the flu. Hand washing is important in preventing the spread of infections, but there is nothing nearly as effective as influenza vaccination in preventing the spread of the flu. Is the flu vaccine 100 per cent effective? No. But it is the most effective tool we have. All health-care staff can take advantage of their most convenient opportunity to get a free flu shot: at their local pharmacy or grocery store with a pharmacy, at a public health clinic or at their family physician’s office. The worksite staff flu

clinics are not their only option. Vancouver Coastal Health does not place a discipline letter in the files of staff who have above-average sick time. The authority expects staff to remain off work if they are sick with an infectious condition. That’s the value of the flu shot — staff can avoid using up their sick days. Finally, despite our best efforts, we have never had more than about 40 per cent of our staff vaccinated each year. Policies such as the one now in place in B.C. have been implemented in many health-care organizations in the U.S., and have been extremely effective in achieving coverage rates of 95 per cent or more, meaning much better protection for patients, which we all want. Dr. Patricia Daly, chief medical health officer Vancouver Coastal Health

‘Safe’ Liberal riding is likely a 4-way race

ELECTION nights are usually exciting events and next spring’s provincial contest should be no exception. But as I sit next to Chris Gailus on the Global set on the evening of May 13, 2013, poring over riding-byriding results throughout the evening, one race may attract more of our attention than others because it’s shaping up to have more drama than any other. That would be the riding of Abbotsford-South. It has the potential to be a genuine four-way race, a rarity in B.C.’s usually polarized electorate. In fact, it could even be a five-way race. The riding is usually safe territory for the B.C. Liberals. The party won the seat in 2009 with more than 58 per cent of the vote, and it ranks in the top 10 of seats where the party did best. But a number of factors are now at play that have turned this contest on its head and make it a genuine toss-up, a development that seemed unthinkable just a couple of years ago. First, long-time

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

incumbent John van Dongen, who has held the seat since winning a byelection there in 1995, will be running as a credible Independent candidate (assuming he won’t join yet another party before the election is called). Van Dongen, of course, quit the B.C. Liberals last spring. Presumably, he will attract a fair share of the vote next spring, certainly more than your average “independent” candidate would. The B.C. Conservatives will no doubt field a candidate, although given the fact they appear to be crumbling both in the polls

and internally it’s unlikely that person will play anything more than a spoiler role. This brings us back to the B.C. Liberals and the party’s controversial decision to let its head office stick its nose in constituency affairs and elbow one candidate out of the way in favour of another. The displaced would-be candidate is local councillor Moe Gill, who had been planning to challenge van Dongen for the nomination before the MLA quit the party. Gill had been working for two years to secure the nomination, and his supporters had taken control over the riding association in the process. But the party’s head office had other ideas and informed Gill he was out, and wouldn’t be getting the nomination. Instead, noted criminologist Darryl Plecas was appointed the candidate over the wishes of the party’s riding executive, who all quit in protest. This messy affair will no doubt cost the B.C. Liberals votes. Gill and his supporters are planning on some kind of revenge, although it’s not

clear what, exactly, that will entail. But Plecas, van Dongen and the B.C. Conservative candidate will all be fighting over slices of the same pie now and the centre-right vote bloc will now be split three ways, instead of the usual two. The person to benefit most from this unusual scenario is the NDP candidate, Lhakvinder Jhaj, who is no doubt smiling a lot these days. She is now the only Indo-Canadian in the race, which gives her yet another advantage in a riding that has a large IndoCanadian community. The NDP candidate got almost 26 per cent of the vote in 2009, which was nowhere near van Dongen’s winning total of course. But look at it this way. About 9,500 people voted for the B.C. Liberals last time, and about 4,200 voted

for the NDP. If the NDP can boost its total vote by about 1,000 people (a safe proposition, given the party’s rise in the polls and the ever-changing demographic of the riding, which is becoming younger), it can achieve victory if 3,300 or so B.C. Liberal voters either vote for van Dongen or someone else. Given the party’s treatment of Gill, and van Dongen’s own personal popularity, such a scenario doesn’t seem far-fetched. There’s another reason the NDP may be gaining confidence in AbbotsfordSouth. The latest Angus Reid poll shows the B.C. Liberals continue to have trouble hanging onto their supporters from the previous election. About one-third of previous B.C. Liberal voters say they won’t back the party this time around.

In Abbotsford-South that translates to about 3,200 voters – about the number the NDP needs to pull out a victory. Given the B.C. Liberal party’s internal problems in the riding, I suspect the number of disaffected party voters may be even higher. This all adds up to making Abbotsford-South a riding to watch next May 13.

Movember: a fine month for respect

WEEK 1: I was doing what I do every All Saints’ Day — offering a live sacrifice of 1,000 Gummi Bears before feasting on their gooey innards — when my wife hit me with a curveball.

“Why haven’t you ever done Movember?” Good question. The short and happy answer is that I’ve never had prostate cancer and none of my close friends or family members have had it either so the annual fundraiser was never really on my radar. I’m not even sure I know exactly what a prostate is. The even shorter answer is that no one had ever asked me to do Movember before. My wife’s question got me thinking. I went on the Movember website and noticed they’d added men’s mental health as another thing, along with prostate cancer, that fundraising money would go towards. Now we’re talking. I’m a big fan of the human brain, and I’ve got Alzheimer’s in my family so I’ve seen what it’s like to lose a mind. Speaking of the mind, one thing I love about being a

dad is the subtle brainwashing you can inflict on your kids. Nothing nefarious, just sensible little things like making them believe that the Edmonton Eskimos are evil (got that one from my old man) and that fruit is a dessert. When we finish meals at our house my son doesn’t scream for chocolate cake, he does happy dances for oranges. That’s a nice bit of brainwashing by my wife. And when we have that orange he always wants me to peel a long strip that he can hold up to his lip for, as he calls it, a “MOOstash.” Quick tangent: We’ve also already brainwashed him to say “skip” every time a commercial comes on

television — we watch a lot of pre-recorded stuff and the skip button gets a lot of use. During the Grey Cup halftime show on Sunday my son paid rapt attention while an apparently still-alive Gordon Lightfoot sang his “Canadian Railroad Trilogy.” “The man sang very, very well,” my son said at the end of the performance. Then Justin Bieber came on stage. “Skip,” said my son. I’ve never been prouder. With such a precious little brain to protect, I started thinking about all the laughter and joy my son brings me. Then I thought of the other little dude hanging out wombside in my wife’s belly waiting to make an appearance in a few months. Maybe it was time for me to set a manly example for these boys. Maybe this was a cause worth taking up. Maybe, truth be told, I’ll take any excuse to grow facial hair. “I’ll do it,” I said, not realizing my wife had left the room and gone to bed hours ago. Week 2: When I finally got around to shaving off my beard (Editor: Oh, that’s what it was.), leaving only a moustache behind, my wife

Metro Vancouver furnace inspections go high tech W

hen you call a furnace service technician to your home, you may wonder if you are getting the best service. What you usually receive at the end of the inspection is a hand written report that seems to be in hieroglyphics.

Pro Ace Heating and Plumbing, serving all of Metro Vancouver, has come up with the solution that will also ensure higher quality inspections. It’s a unique tablet-based system that records everything a technician does so it can be electronically reviewed in real time by the head office. The result is every customer gets the same high quality inspection by a fully-licensed technician. It is a first for Metro Vancouver furnace inspection and installation companies. Pro Ace owner Ali Soroush is proud of the system he developed, “It will eliminate mistakes because inconsistencies in an inspection report will automatically be flagged. With this system, there is just no room for error.”

In real time Pro Ace is now able to: ■

Confirm that the furnace is operating within manufacturer’s specifications

Note where any of the data is out of range, indicating a problem

Flag inconsistencies in the case of an input error by a technician thereby eliminating a false diagnosis

Before the licensed Pro Ace technician leaves the home, customers receive: ■

a printed copy of the 30-point inspection report which list the current condition of their furnace

“It will eliminate mistakes because inconsistencies in an inspection report will automatically be flagged. With this system, there is just no room for error.”

recommendations for repairs or replacement, if necessary

the cost and benefit of each option

Ali Soroush, owner of Pro Ace, says “this App has been three years in the making and sets us apart from all other companies offering inspection, repair and installation services. It’s designed to ensure that customers know exactly what will be done and the cost, before they give their authorization to proceed with the work.” Dr. Holly Fourchalk, of Choices Unlimited for Health and Wellness, is a repeat customer. Her most recent service call was for duct cleaning. She was impressed once again. “Pro Ace Heating always does a fantastic job, “she says. “They were upfront and honest. I was very happy with their service and impressed that they used organic based materials to eliminate any mold or other pathogens that may have built up in my home’s ducts.” If you need your furnace inspected and you want it done right call Ali at 604.293.3770.

Judge denounces NV man’s sexual assault

Jane Seyd

A former North Vancouver man has been sent to jail for three and a half years after pleading guilty to a violent sexual assault on his former girlfriend. In sending the man to prison, Justice Murray Blok of the B.C. Supreme Court said the sentence was needed to condemn “the prolonged, degrading and, indeed, torture-like nature of the sexual assault in question.” The judge said the jail sentence was also needed to protect the public, noting a psychologist considered the perpetrator to still be at moderate risk of “imminent physical violence towards others.” The assault happened in the couple’s North Vancouver apartment seven years ago. According to court documents, the attacker erupted into a rage after he had been drinking, smashing objects in the apartment and displaying signs of paranoia. He then began a twohour attack that included what the judge described as “a lengthy and seriously degrading series of assaults and threats” on the woman. During the assault, the attacker made several statements that he was going to force the victim to work for him as a prostitute, called her a “whore” and said he would snap her neck. He also said he might end up putting a bullet in her head. When the man finally fell asleep, the woman escaped the apartment and went to the RCMP detachment, where she appeared shaking and crying. She later went to a women’s shelter. A Crown prosecutor said the woman still has nightmares about the incident and finds it difficult to leave her house. The attacker — who cannot be named in order to protect the identity of the victim — is described in the sentencing documents as an alcoholic and crack user who becomes angry and aggressive when drinking or doing drugs. His defence lawyer described many of his problems as stemming from a previous violent attack on him, which


WITH as many as 12 defunct North Vancouver schools on the shopping block, many residents are concerned about just who will be moving in next door if any of the properties are sold. The North Vancouver school district listened Nov. 20 to pitches from real estate developers and a childcare firm for Ridgeway Annex. The district is slated to weigh proposals for the former Plymouth elementary Dec. 4. Should the sites be turned into townhouses, park space, or remain as they are in anticipation of a population boom? Find us on Facebook or Twitter and tell us what you think. —Jeremy Shepherd

had an interesting question: “Why are you doing Movember?” I got a lot of funny looks from friends and strangers alike as my ’stache continued to grow throughout the month. It’s a bit of an odd feeling: my field of vision — except for the hour or so I spend gazing at myself in the mirror each day — stayed the same but everyone looking back at me got a full taste of greasy lip hair. Or, as my wife insisted on labeling it, greeezy. My lovely wife also informed me that I looked like Ron Jeremy. If you don’t know who Ron Jeremy is, I’ll just say you might want to wait until after work to Google him. If you do search his name on the Internet, you should also make sure there aren’t any children, grandparents, clergymen, impressionable dogs or easily offended ferns nearby. And whatever you do, do not select the “I’m feeling lucky” option. Speaking of adult entertainment, “You should make a porn film” was something a coworker actually said to me as I sat saturating my ’stache with pizza sauce in the lunchroom. Not realizing I was putting off such a sexy vibe, I thought for a moment what that would be like.

On second thought, no thanks. Week 3: OK, here’s where this thing started getting real. Growing actual facial hair is legitimately one thing that separates boys from men. No one comes out of the womb with five o’clock shadow. Well, no one but Chuck Norris. Even now, as a 30-something daddy, I still get a thrill knowing that I can grow a proper ’stache, unlike those little punks on skateboards in front of the 7-Eleven. The novelty, however, didn’t last too long. One day last week I enjoyed a delicious bowl of perogies topped with cheese for supper. Hours later, cheddar stink was still running around my lip forest like it was filming Blair Witch 3, Evil Lurks Right Under Your Nose. Yuck. It’s itchy too. I don’t know how perma-’stachers do it. Week 4: Home stretch and this thing is drawing rave reviews now. It’s so thick it’s condensing the breath from my nose in the cold morning air and running it off like a ’stache storm sewer. I could be wrong, but it feels like I’m getting a bit more respect these days. I test it out on my son, shooting him a ’stache-tastic look while asking him to please stop chewing on his fake wooden sushi knife. He stops, momentarily, and then gives me a look right back that can mean only one thing: skip. ••• If you’ve enjoyed my columns feel free to look up my name at and throw a few dollars in there. Or find a friend with a more meaningful story and give him a donation — it all ends up in the same place. All you men out there, don’t forget to let a doctor feel that old prostate once in a while. I’m still working out exactly where it is — it can’t be that hard to find, right?

■ Delhi 2 Dublin at the Commodore Ballroom tonight at 8 p.m.

Jeremy Shepherd

THE five-piece band takes the stage in the midst of the Midwest, and the nightmare begins. The group’s brand of international electronica has been loved and lavished with praise by thousands of fans, but on that night in Iowa City, Iowa, they’re facing an audience of one. For Tarun Nayar, who provides the beat and bass line for many of Delhi 2 Dublin’s songs, the disappointment runs deeper: it’s his birthday. “We still played,” Nayar reports. The group’s mixture of Irish fiddle, electric sitar, dhol, tabla, and Punjabi lyrics have proved irresistible to many electronica fans, perhaps even including Iowa City’s lone Delhi 2 Dublin supporter. “He seemed like he had a good time,” Nayar says. The group is scheduled to play the Commodore Ballroom tonight. The band’s newest album, Turn Up the Stereo, will be sold for $5 at the show with $2 of each sale going to support UBC Farm. Growing up straddling the leather line between punk and metal in Montreal mosh pits, Nayar has always been comfortable in two worlds. As a founding member of Delhi 2 Dublin, Nayar alternates between accentuating the band’s Bhangra beats with the tabla, an Indian percussion instrument that may date back more than 2,000 years, and programming the

group’s electronica sound with his Apple laptop. That tendency to mix seemingly disparate sounds is likely rooted in Nayar’s upbringing, where ghazal singer Mehdi Hassan competed for time on the turntable with light folk groups like Peter, Paul and Mary. “I started learning tabla when I was really young, when I was about seven, and I didn’t know how to speak Hindi or Urdu at that point of time but my sisters and I would sing phonetically,” Nayar recalls. Those gentle sounds slid away when Nayar hit his teen years, slipping into Montreal’s multi-level music spot and putting his neck through the requisite trials of the headbanger. “Probably because I was growing up in the suburbs, I got really into thrash metal and hardcore, and heavy metal, and punk. Bands like the Sex Pistols, the old, old version of Metallica, and S.N.F.U. . . . all these crazy punk bands,” Nayar says. “I would sneak into Les Foufounes Electriques which was like the happening punk bar at the time, and just go out and go crazy until I was about 15 or 16.” A change in geography upended Nayar’s musical tastes. “I remember it was our first family trip anywhere hot, and we did a house trade with some distant relatives in the Cayman Islands,” Nayar says. “Going to a tropical place and listening to Bob Marley for two weeks non-stop, that just totally shifted my life.” Nayar hung up his devil horns and made an abrupt switch to reggae and African music. “It was like I got all my anger out,” he says.

Cirque settles in under the Grand Chapiteau Quebec circus troupe create a dramatic world in Amaluna ■ Cirque du Soleil: Amaluna in the Grand Chapiteau (Big Top) at Concord Pacific Place to Jan. 13, 2013. Tickets available at

John Goodman

IULIIA Mykhailova and Cirque du Soleil were made for each other. Whether she knew it or not the young Ukrainian contortionist extraordinaire has been working her entire life towards playing the role of Miranda in Amaluna. The production, which premiered earlier this year in Montreal, is now in Vancouver for an extended run through Christmas and the new year under the Grand Chapiteau at Concord Pacific Place. At 17, Mykhailova trained at the Kyiv Municipal Academy of Circus and Variety Arts specializing in contortion and hand to hand balancing. As well as learning the physical circus arts she also studied theatre as part of her training. Established in 1961 through an order of the Minister of Culture of the Ukrainian SSR, the academy was originally housed in the same premises as the Kyiv Circus. Since 2002 it has been in its own four-storey building and has established itself as one of the world’s leading circus schools, regularly winning medals in competitions such as

FOR her performance as Miranda in Cirque du Soleil’s Amaluna, Iuliia Mykhailova uses both of her specializations as a circus artist (contortion and hand to hand balancing) and adds a new one — working in water. The production is in Vancouver until Jan. 13, 2013. See more photos at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain in Paris. The academy gave Mykhailova the tools to perform anywhere in the circus world. Moving to Montreal was a culture shock for the young Ukrainian performer but circus as an art form gave

her a common goal with everyone she met in her new Cirque surroundings. “At first it was difficult,” she says. “You are always training. Every day you are trying something new.” For Amaluna she has added a new specialty to

her repertoire of talents — working with water. At the end of last year she was asked if she would be interested in learning to perform in a giant waterbowl. “It was something new, different and challenging so I gave it a try,” she says. “It’s really tough staying

in the water doing the contortions,” Mykhailova says. “Everything is very hard.” She began working with Amaluna in January preparing for the April world premiere in Montreal. The character of Miranda is central to Amaluna’s

storyline and Mykhailova rarely leaves the stage during the performance. The production is a tribute to women and everything about Amaluna revolves around that conceptual framework. With nods to Shakespeare’s The Tempest and other classical works director Diane Paulus, up until now associated mainly with musical theatre and opera, has created a dramatic world where 75 per cent of the cast are women — including two clowns (Pepa Plana and Nathalie Claude) who weave in and out of the story like a Marx Brothers Greek chorus adding their own comically surreal touch to the proceedings. Instead of Prospero, Queen Prospera rules over an island of women governed by goddesses and cycles of the moon. Romeo washes up with a boatload of stranded sailors and falls in love with Miranda. Their budding romance is the plotline around which Cirque builds Amaluna’s set pieces featuring the amazing acrobatic feats the company has become famous for. The music composed by the Quebec songwriting duo Guy Dubuc and Marc Lessard (under the very unfrancophone name of Bob and Bill) includes everything from rock raveups to classical to electronic to Jon Hassell-like world funk jazz. The all-female band performing the material features two guitarists dressed in baroque finery a la Prince’s Purple Rain period. New York City choreographer Karole Armitage, known for pushing the boundaries of dance, music and art in her own work, is a perfect choice to put Cirque’s highly aesthetic world in motion.

The Boss was in fine form at Rogers Arena

■ Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Rogers Arena, Monday, Nov. 26.

Terry Peters

EVEN before the stage lights came on at Rogers Arena on Monday and the E Street Band had gotten into position, Bruce Springsteen was at the microphone encouraging the audience to sing along with him to the gospeltinged song, “Shackled and Drawn.”

BEING THERE By the third song the Boss was in fine form and had already left the stage to walk out into the crowd. Facing the audience Springsteen said “I hope there are some strong people here tonight” and with that he fell backwards and crowd surfed around while singing “Hungry Heart” until he was eventually deposited back on the stage. It was obvious how much Springsteen loves what he does. At one point saying, “I may be old but I’m not ready to go home yet,” And then shortly after, “I love my job.” Later on he asked the audience how many were seeing the E Street Band for the first time and responded to the reaction with “that’s good. I like new faces. It keeps me pushing,” as he did a few boxing-like shuffle steps. Easily moving from older material to songs from his latest album, Wrecking Ball, Springsteen kept the audience cheering all night long. For some songs he would stretch them out and play with the arrangement like the extended version of “Spirit in the Night” that saw him leave the

stage and climb up into the stands only to return with a mock ‘coon-skin cap’ that is described in the lyrics. He then put the hat on and settled down on the stage with sax player Jake Clemons, nephew of the late band member, Clarence Clemons, serenading him, only to leave Clemons and lie down at the edge of the stage in front of some young girls — one of whom he then gave the cap to, all while continuing to sing. The set list for a Springsteen concert is a work in progress and he happily takes requests from the audience. He walked out to collect signs that were held up as special requests, which he then would intersperse with the planned songs, often holding up the sign to the band to let them know what was coming next, both “Streets of Fire” and “Radio Nowhere” got this treatment. The most noteworthy sign was a curvaceous cut-out of a red-head in a slinky green dress, complete with moving arms. Springsteen said, “we don’t really do this song but I love someone who puts a lot of effort into their sign,” and with a few words to the band to get them ready he broke into the raunchy “Red Headed Woman.” Three lucky audience members made it up onto the stage with Springsteen during the evening. The first was a very young girl who he brought up and shared the microphone with on “Waiting on a Sunny Day.” She did a great job carrying the chorus on her own before taking a bow with him. Next up was an 80-year-old woman who Springsteen helped on to the stage for a short dance together to the hit song, “Dancing in the Dark.” The last collaborator was a man in a Santa costume holding up a tinsel embellished sign who Springsteen joined for a duet of Santa Claus is Coming to Town. After an incredibly long set the lights dimmed but the band never actually left the stage as

Magical McCartney tour hits Vancouver

PAUL McCartney returned to Vancouver for the first time in almost half a century to perform at BC Place on Sunday night but it was more than worth the wait for his fans. “It’s been a long time, Vancouver,” he told the sold out crowd. “It’s good to be back.” Macca and his band (Rusty Anderson on guitar, Paul Wickens on keyboards and guitar, Brian Ray on guitar and bass and Abe Laboriel Jr. on drums) opened with “Magical Mystery Tour,” closed with an Abbey Road medley and in between played close to 40 songs over a three-hour set as part of his “On the Run” tour.

Show ended like a giant house party From page 20 Springsteen sang “Racing in the Streets” to only piano accompaniment, and as the song drew close to its end the band slowly joined in. As the band built up to the final songs the house lights came up and stayed on making the Arena suddenly feel like a giant house party. While Roy Bittan played the opening notes of “Tenth Avenue Freeze Out” Springsteen climbed on top of his piano to lead the band before he jumped down to take the microphone. He moved through the audience for one last time, stopping in the centre of the

room and as the band played on at a lower volume he asked for a moment as he faced a big projection screen showing images of former band members Clarence Clemons (who died last year) and Danny Federici (who passed away in 2008). Three hours and twenty minutes after they took the stage Bruce Springsteen and the 15member band bowed to the enormous applause they deserved. One by one as they left the stage Springsteen patted or hugged them until he was left alone to say one final thank you to the audience that continued to clap and show their appreciation for a spectacular show.

Dress sale makes dreams come true Layne Christensen

A high-school gym is the last place you’d expect to find that perfect holiday outfit.

Follow us on Twitter @NSNLook.

This evening and all day tomorrow, however, sequins and lace will be on the scoreboard at Sentinel secondary’s gymnasium when the school hosts a sale of formal wear in support of The Cinderella Project. The fundraiser is being organized by the school’s student-led Cinderella Club. The club has about 30 members in grades 8 through 12, according to Shannon Gray, who oversees club activities with fellow teacher sponsors Megan Gray and Shelley-Ann Curtin. Students Alina Salemohamed, Nicole Hui, Emma Choo, Karina Furuya and Hannah Robinovitch make up the club’s executive this year. The club raises money through bake sales and other school events to support the Vancouver-based Cinderella Project, a federal charity that provides underprivileged high school graduates with formal attire so they can attend their graduation festivities with pride. Throughout the year, the Cinderella Project collects donations of new and used formal wear. Each spring, organizers hold a “boutique day” in a downtown ballroom and invite underprivileged highschool graduates — “cinderellas” and “cinderfellas” — from across the Lower Mainland to select their graduation outfits and celebrate their achievements. The 600 dresses for sale at Sentinel this weekend are surplus donations, said Cinderella Project co-founder Heather MacKenzie. The project will use proceeds from this first-ever sale to purchase indemand items such as suits for young men, gowns in plus sizes and customized formal wear for young people with physical challenges. “What we are selling are the

dresses that we were blessed to have an abundance of,” said MacKenzie. “Because we right now don’t have items that we need for some of our user groups, (the sale) is the only way to be able to help certain kids.” Gowns in the sale are size 12 and smaller. “For us, we need to be able to outfit girls who are in all sizes, from a zero to a 32,” said MacKenzie. In addition, “Many of the dresses are fantastic party dresses, they’re just not grad material.” Teacher Shannon Gray said the gowns are perfect holiday attire for teens and older. “I’m sitting next to four racks of them right now in my office,” Gray said Wednesday, as students prepared for the sale. “They’re (suitable for) all ages, all styles — full length, long dresses, some are more cocktail party, short fun dresses. It’s a very eclectic range.” With prices starting at $10, there are some amazing bargains. Organizers are hoping the gowns will brighten the holidays for young women who otherwise could not afford to dress up for the holidays, including teens who do not qualify for Cinderella Project support but are struggling nonetheless. And while the frou-frou and frills may leave dress shoppers with the impression that the Cinderella Project is concerned only with appearances, MacKenzie said it’s not simply about the clothes that are worn on graduation night. Students who are referred to the Cinderella Project by their teachers, principals or social workers participate in “boutique day” as a day of recognition and self-esteem boosting. “It’s about the mentorship and the one-on-one support that helps these kids who are so marginalized and so bullied and so challenged to realize that they are fantastic and valuable and that we want them to have every opportunity for success.” To that end, proceeds from the dress sale will also help to fund bursaries and awards that

Lavish book celebrates life of a fashion visionary ■ Alexander McQueen: Evolution, by Katherine Gleason (Race Point Publishing, 215 pages) $39

ALEXANDER McQueen has been called many things by both his fans and his detractors but no one could doubt his commitment to his craft. This book is a testament to his vision and includes photographs and commentary on his fashion shows — from his graduate collection to the posthumous show in his honour. The photographs alone tell a remarkable story of outlandish creativity, while the reaction from the fashion world makes for fascinating reading. From the moment McQueen arrived on the British fashion scene, he created a sensation. Quickly recognized as a flawless creator of meticulous designs, he maintained complete control of his projects. Guided by an intense vision, he pushed the boundaries of fashion, art and theatre to create shows that sought the pinnacle of all three. From his first professional catwalk show entitled Nihilism, at the Bluebird Garage in Chelsea, McQueen demanded attention throughout his career. Inspiration for his shows came from many sources. The Deliverance show in 2004 featured models performing in a dance marathon like the one in the 1969 film They Shoot Horses, Don’t They. In his 2006 fall show, Widows of Culloden, McQueen celebrated the Scottish warrior spirit. The Spring 2008 show, La Dame Bleue, paid

tribute to Isabella Blow, the eccentric fashion stylist who championed McQueen’s work from the beginning and acted as his muse until her death that year. Bold, breathtaking, theatrical, shocking are all easy adjectives to describe McQueen’s work, reminders to lovers of fashion of what is now missing. — Terry Peters

Joyful, all ye nations rise Join the triumph of the skies; With the’ angelic hosts proclaim, “Christ is born in Bethlehem!”

You will get a sentimental feeling Hark! The herald angels sing, When you hear voices singing “Glory to the newborn King!” “Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly” Christ, by highest Heav’n adored, Christ, the everlasting Lord, Rocking around the Christmas Tree Late in time behold Him come, Have a happy holiday Offspring of the favoured one. Everyone’s dancing merrily Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, In a new old fashioned way Hail the’ incarnate Deity! Pleased as man with man to dwell; Jesus, our Emmanuel!

Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!” Come, Desire of nations come, Fix in us Thy humble home; Oh, to all Thyself impart, Formed in each believing heart! Hark!

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas, And a Happy NewYear! Good tidings we bring To you and your kin; Good tidings for Christmas And a happy NewYear! Now bring us some figgy pudding, Now bring us some figgy pudding, Now bring us some figgy pudding, And a cup of good cheer.

God rest ye merry, gentlemen Let nothing you dismay Remember, Christ, our Saviour Was born on Christmas day To save us all from Satan’s power When we were gone astray

From God our Heavenly Father A blessed Angel came; And unto certain Shepherds Brought tidings of the same: How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by Name.

O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem, in Israel, This blessed Babe was born And laid within a manger Upon this blessed morn The which His Mother Mary Did nothing take in scorn

“Fear not then,” said the Angel, “Let nothing you affright, This day is born a Saviour Of a pureVirgin bright, To free all those who trust in Him From Satan’s power and might.”

Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus O tidings of comfort and joy,

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus Underneath the mistletoe last night She didn’t see me creep Down the stairs to have a peep She thought that I was tucked up In my bedroom fast asleep

O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy And when they came to Bethlehem Where our dear Saviour lay, They found Him in a manger, Where oxen feed on hay; His Mother Mary kneeling down, Unto the Lord did pray. O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy Now to the Lord sing praises, All you within this place, And with true love and brotherhood Each other now embrace; This holy tide of Christmas All other doth deface.

The shepherds at those tidings O tidings of comfort and joy, Rejoiced much in mind, Comfort and joy And left their flocks a-feeding O tidings of comfort and joy In tempest, storm and wind: And went to Bethlehem straightway The Son of God to find.

Then I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus Underneath his beard so snowy white Oh, what a laugh it would have been If Daddy had only seen Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas Have a holly jolly Christmas It’s the best time of the year Well I don’t know if there’ll be snow But have a cup of cheer

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, Jingle bell rock Jingle bells swing And jingle bells ring Snowing and blowing up Have a holly jolly Christmas And when you walk down the street Bushels of fun Now the jingle hop has begun. Say hello to friends you know And everyone you meet Jingle bell, jingle bell, Jingle bell rock Ho ho the mistletoe Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time Hung where you can see Dancing and prancing Somebody waits for you In Jingle Bell Square Kiss her once for me In the frosty air. Have a holly jolly Christmas What a bright time, And in case you didn’t hear it’s the right time Oh by golly have a holly jolly To rock the night away Christmas this year Jingle bell time is a swell time Have a holly jolly Christmas To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh And when you walk down the street Giddy-up jingle horse, Say hello to friends you know Pick up your feet And everyone you meet Jingle around the clock Have a holly jolly Christmas Mix & a-mingle in the jingling beat And in case you didn’t hear That’s the jingle bell, Oh by golly have a holly jolly That’s the jingle bell, Christmas this year That’s the jingle bell rock.

O Little Town of Bethlehem O little town of Bethlehem How still we see thee lie Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight O morning stars together Proclaim the holy birth And praises sing to God the King And Peace to men on Earth For Christ is born of Mary And gathered all above While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wondering love

No ear may his His coming, But in this world of sin, Where meek souls Will receive him still, The dear Christ enters in. Where children pure and happy Pray to the blessed child, Where misery cries out to thee, Son of the mother mild; Where charity stands watching And faith holds wide the door, The dark night wakes, The glory breaks, And Christmas comes once more. O holy Child of Bethlehem Descend to us, we pray Cast out our sin and enter in Be born to us today We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell O come to us, abide with us Our Lord Emmanuel

sing How silently, how silently The wondrous gift is given! So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of His heaven.


“We would like to wish everyone a joyous Holiday Season and prosperous New Year.”

Away in a Manger

Sleigh Ride

O Come, All Ye Faithful

Away in a manger, No crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus Laid down His sweet head,

Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing Ring ting tingle-ing, too Come on, it’s lovely weather For a sleigh ride together with you Outside the snow is falling And friends are calling “You Hoo” Come on, it’s lovely weather For a sleigh ride together with you

O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant, O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem; Come and behold Him, Born the King of angels:

The stars in the bright sky Looked down where He lay, The little Lord Jesus, Asleep on the hay. The cattle are lowing, The poor Baby wakes, But little Lord Jesus No crying He makes, I love Thee Lord Jesus, Look down from the sky And stay by my cradle Till morning is nigh. Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay Close by me forever, And love me, I pray. Bless all the dear children In Thy tender care, And take us to Heaven, To live with Thee there.

O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord. Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, Born this happy morning, Jesus, to Thee be glory giv’n; Word of the Father Now in flesh appearing:

O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

Giddy-up giddy-up giddy-up Let’s go, let’s look at the snow We’re riding in a wonderland of snow Sing, choirs of angels, Giddy-up giddy-up giddy-up it’s grand Sing in exultation, Just holding your hand Sing, all ye citizens of heav’n above; We’re gliding along with the song Glory to God Of a wintry fairyland In the highest: Our cheeks are nice and rosy And comfy cozy are we We’re snuggled up together Like two Birds of a feather would be Let’s take the road before us And sing a chorus or two Come on, it’s lovely weather For a sleigh ride together with you

O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

Winter Wonderland

The First Noel The first Noel, the angels did say, Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay. In fields where they lay keeping their sheep On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.

The star drew nigh to the northwest, O’er Bethlehem it took its rest, And there it did both stop and stay, Right over the place where Jesus lay.

Sleigh bells ring are you listening In the lane, snow is glistening A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight Walking in a winter wonderland

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel. Born is the King of Israel.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel. Born is the King of Israel.

They looked up and saw a star Shining in the east beyond them far; And to the earth it gave great light, And so it continued both day and night.

Then enter’d in those wise men three Full rev’rently upon their knee And offer’d there, in His presence, Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.

Gone away is the bluebird Here to stay is a new bird He sings a love song as we go along Walking in a winter wonderland

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel. Born is the King of Israel.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel. Born is the King of Israel.

And by the light of that same star, Three wise men came from country far To seek for a King was their intent, And to follow the star wherever it went.

Then let us all with one accord Sing praises to our heav’nly Lord; That hath made Heav’n and earth of nought, And with His blood mankind hath bought.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel. Born is the King of Israel.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel. Born is the King of Israel.

In the meadow we can build a snowman Then pretend that he is Parson Brown He’ll say:Are you married? We’ll say: No man But you can do the job when you’re in town Later on we’ll conspire As we dream by the fire To face unafraid the plans that we’ve made Walking in a winter wonderland In the meadow we can build a snowman And pretend that he’s a circus clown We’ll have lots of fun with mister snowman Until the other kiddies knock him down When it snows ain’t it thrilling Though your nose gets a chilling We’ll frolic and play the Eskimo way Walking in a winter wonderland Walking in a winter wonderland Walking in a winter wonderland

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Oh!You better watch out, you better not cry, You better not pout, I’m telling you why: Santa Claus is coming to town!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Ev’rywhere you go, Take a look in the five-and-ten, Glistening once again, With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice, He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice. Santa Claus is coming to town! He sees you when you’re sleeping, He knows when you’re awake. He knows when you’ve been bad or good, So be good for goodness sake! So...You better watch out, you better not cry You better not pout, I’m telling you why. Santa Claus is coming to town. Little tin horns, little toy drums. Rudy-toot-toot and rummy tum tums. Santa Claus is coming to town. Little toy dolls that cuddle and coo, Elephants, boats and diddie cars too. Santa Claus is coming to town. The kids in Girl and Boy Land Will have a jubilee. They’re gonna build a toyland town All around the Christmas tree. Oh....You better watch out,You better not cry. You better not pout, I’m telling you why. Santa Claus is comin’ Santa Claus is comin’ Santa Claus is comin’ to town.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Toys in ev’ry store, But the prettiest sight to see is the holly That will be on your own front door.


A pair of hop-along boots And a pistol that shoots Is the wish of Barney and Ben, Dolls that will talk And will go for a walk, Is the hope of Janice and Jen, And Mom and Dad can hardly wait For school to start again. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Ev’rywhere you go, There’s a tree in the Grand Hotel, One in the park as well, The sturdy kind That doesn’t mind the snow. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Soon the bells will start, and the thing That will make them ring Is the carol that you sing, Right within your heart.

Here Comes Santa Claus

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

Here comes Santa Claus! Here comes Santa Claus! Right down Santa Claus Lane! Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer Are pulling on the reins. Bells are ringing, children singing; All is merry and bright. Hang your stockings & say your prayers, ‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

It came upon a midnight clear, That glorious song of old, From angels bending near the earth, To touch their harps of gold, “Peace on the Earth, goodwill to men From heav’n’s all gracious King.” The world in solemn stillness lay, To hear the angels sing.

For lo! the days are hast’ning on, By prophets seen of old, When with the ever-circling years, Shall come the time foretold, When the new heav’n and earth shall own The Prince of Peace their King, And the whole world send back the song Which now the angels sing.

Still through the cloven skies they come, With peaceful wings unfurl’d, And still their heav’nly music floats O’er all the weary world:

O ye, beneath life’s crushing load Whose forms are bending low, Who toil along the arduous way With painful steps and slow;

Above its sad and lonely plains They bend on hov’ring wing. And ever o’er its Babel sounds The blessed angels sing.

Look now, for glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing. O rest beside the weary road And hear the angels sing.

O ye, beneath life’s crushing load, Whose forms are bending low, Who toil along the climbing way With painful steps and slow: Look now, for glad the golden hours Come swiftly on the wing; Oh rest beside the weary road And hear the angels sing.

“Peace on the earth, goodwill to men From heav’n’s all gracious King.” The world in solemn stillness lay, To hear the angels sing.

Here comes Santa Claus! Here comes Santa Claus! Right down Santa Claus Lane! He’s got a bag that is filled with toys For the boys and girls again. Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle, What a beautiful sight. Jump in bed, cover up your head, ‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Frosty the snowman Was a jolly happy soul, With a corncob pipe & a button nose And two eyes made out of coal.

We three kings of Orient are; Bearing gifts, we traverse afar; Field and fountain, moor & mountain, Following yonder star.

Frosty the snowman Is a fairy tale, they say, He was made of snow But the children know How he came to life one day.

O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to the perfect light.

There must have been some magic In that old silk hat they found. For when they placed it on his head He began to dance around. O, Frosty the snowman Was alive as he could be, And the children say he could laugh And play just the same as you & me. Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpetty thump thump, Look at Frosty go. Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpetty thump thump, Over the hills of snow. Frosty the snowman Knew the sun was hot that day, So he said,“Let’s run And we’ll have some fun Now before I melt away.” Down to the village With a broomstick in his hand, Running here and there All around the square saying, “Catch me if you can.”

Born a King of Bethlehem’s plain, Gold I bring, to crown Him again, King forever, ceasing never Over us all to reign.

Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpetty thump thump, Look at Frosty go. Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpetty thump thump, Over the hills of snow.


I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus Underneath the mistletoe last night She didn’t see me creep fora the Down the stairs to have peepHolidays She thought that I was tucked up In my bedroom fast asleep


Then I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus Underneath his beard so snowy white Oh, what a laugh it would have been If Daddy had only seen Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to the perfect light. Frankincense to offer have I, Incense owns a Deity nigh. Pray’r and praising, all men raising, Worship Him, God most high. O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to the perfect light. Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume Breathes a life of gathering gloom; Sorr’wing, sighing, bleeding, dying, Sealed in the stone-cold tomb. O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to the perfect light.

Glorious now behold Him arise, He led them down the streets of town King and God and sacrifice, Right to the traffic cop. Alleluia,Alleluia, And he only paused a moment when Earth to the heav’ns replies. He heard him holler “Stop!” For Frosty the snowman Had to hurry on his way, But he waved goodbye saying, “Don’t you cry, I’ll be back again some day.”

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Jingle Bells Dashing through the snow, In a one-horse open sleigh, O’er the fields we go Laughing all the way. Bells on bobtail ring, Making spirits bright; What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight! Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh! A day or two ago I thought I’d take a ride, And soon Miss Fannie Bright Was seated by my side. The horse was lean and lank, Misfortune seem’d his lot, He got into a drifted bank, And then we got upsot. Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh! Now the ground is white, Go it while you’re young Take the girls tonight, And sing this sleighing song. Just get a bobtail nag, Two forty for his speed, Then hitch him to an open sleigh, And, crack!, you’ll take the lead. Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh!

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Let your heart be light From now on, our troubles will be out of sight Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Make theYule-tide gay, From now on, our troubles will be miles away.


Here we are as in olden days, Happy golden days of yore. Faithful friends who are dear to us Gather near to us once more. Through the years we all will be together If the Fates allow Hang a shining star upon the highest bough. And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy, “Do you hear what I hear? Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy, Do you hear what I hear? A song, a song high above the trees With a voice as big as the sea, With a voice as big as the sea.” Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king, “Do you know what I know? In your palace warm, mighty king, Do you know what I know? A Child, a Child shivers in the cold-Let us bring him silver and gold, Let us bring him silver and gold.” Said the king to the people everywhere, “Listen to what I say! Pray for peace, people, everywhere, Listen to what I say! The Child, the Child sleeping in the night He will bring us goodness and light, He will bring us goodness and light.”

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth. a lay the world in sin and error pining. Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices O night divine, O night when Christ was born; O night divine! O night, O night divine! Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand. Led by the light of a star sweetly gleaming Here came the wise men from the Orient land. The King of kings lay thus lowly manger; In all our trials born to be our friends. Chorus Truly He taught us to love one another, His law is love and His gospel is peace. Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother. And in his name all oppression shall cease. Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, Let all within us praise his holy name Chorus

Let it Snow! Oh, the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful; And since we’ve no place to go, Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! It doesn’t show signs of stopping, And I’ve brought some corn for popping; The lights are turned way down low, Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! When we finally kiss goodnight, How I’ll hate going out in the storm; But if you’ll really hold me tight, All the way home I’ll be warm. The fire is slowly dying, And, my dear, we’re still goodbying; But as long as you love me so, Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

You know Dasher & Dancer & Prancer &Vixen, Comet & Cupid & Donner & Blitzen, But do you recall he most famous reindeer of all...

I heard the bells on Christmas day Their old familiar carols play, And wild and sweet the words repeat Of peace on Earth, good will to men.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Had a very shiny nose, And if you ever saw it, You would even say it glows! All of the other reindeer, Used to laugh and call him names; They wouldn’t let poor Rudolph, Join in any reindeer games. Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say: “Rudolph, with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh tonight.” Then how the reindeer loved him, As they shouted out with glee: “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, You’ll go down in history!”

I thought of how the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along the unbroken song Of peace on earth, good will to men. And in despair I bowed my head “There is no peace on Earth,” I said “For hate is strong and mocks the song Of peace on earth, good will to men.” Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: “God is not dead, nor doth He sleep; The wrong shall fail, the right prevail With peace on earth, good will to men.” Till ringing, singing on its way The world revolved from night to day, A voice, a chime, a chant sublime Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

Angels We Have Heard on High

Jolly old Saint Nicholas, Lean your ear this way! Don’t you tell a single soul What I’m going to say; Christmas Eve is coming soon; Now, you dear old man, Whisper what you’ll bring to me; Tell me if you can.

Joy to the world!The Lord is come: Let earth receive her King; Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room, And heav’n and nature sing, And heav’n and nature sing, And heav’n,and heav’n and nature sing. Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo. Joy to the world!The Saviour reigns: Let men their songs employ, Shepherds, why this jubilee? While fields and floods, rocks, Why your joyous songs prolong? Hills and plains, What the gladsome tidings be, Repeat the sounding joy, Which inspire your heav’nly song Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat, repeat the sounding joy. Gloria in excelsis Deo, No more let sin or sorrow grow, Gloria in excelsis Deo. Nor thorns infest the ground; Come to Bethlehem, and see He comes to make his blessings flow Far as the curse is found, Him whose birth the angels sing; Far as the curse is found, Come, adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord, our newborn King. Far as, far as the curse is found. He rules the world with truth & grace, Gloria in excelsis Deo, And makes the nations prove Gloria in excelsis Deo. The glories of His righteousness And wonders of His love, See Him in a manger laid, And wonders of His love, Whom the choirs of angels praise; And wonders, wonders of His love. Mary, Joseph lend your aid, While our hearts in love we raise.

When the clock is striking twelve, When I’m fast asleep, Down the chimney broad & black, With your pack you’ll creep; All the stockings you will find Hanging in a row; Mine will be the shortest one, You’ll be sure to know. Johnny wants a pair of skates; Susy wants a dolly; Nellie wants a story book; She thinks dolls are folly; As for me, my little brain Isn’t very bright; Choose for me, old Santa Claus, What you think is right.

Joy to the World

Angels we have heard on high, Sweetly singing o’er the plains. And the mountains in reply, Echoing their joyous strains.

Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Silent Night Silent night! Holy night! All is calm, all is bright, Round yonVirgin Mother & Child. Holy Infant, so tender and mild, Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace Silent night! Holy night! Shepherds quake at the sight; Glories stream from Heaven afar, Heav’nly hosts sing ‘Alleluia, Christ, the Saviour is born! Christ, the Saviour, is born! Silent night! Holy night! Son of God, love’s pure light, Radiant beams from Thy holy face, With the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth, Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.

Erin McPhee

WHEN famed British composer Benjamin Britten stopped in Halifax during a journey by sea between the United States and his native England in 1942, he stumbled upon a text that would have a lasting impact on his musical legacy.

In a shop, Britten discovered a book of poetry, The English Galaxy of Shorter Poems, edited by Gerald Bullett and was written in Middle English. “It’s what inspired “A Ceremony of Carols,” says harpist Heidi Krutzen, who is set to perform the multi-movement work for harp and choir with singers from Capilano University tomorrow and Sunday at the North Shore Credit Union Centre for the Performing Arts. “I like that, that it came from Canada,” says Krutzen of the popular piece of music that’s often performed at Christmas, adding it’s “one of the gems in the harp repertoire.” The centenary of Britten’s birth is fast approaching, to be marked Nov. 22, 2013. “I think you’re going to be hearing a lot of Benjamin Britten in the city in the next year, so we’re just starting a little bit early,” she says. Also on the program at the Capilano University show, Harp & Voices, set for Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m., are movements from Marjan Mozetich’s “Songs of Nymphs” for solo harp and selections from John Rutter’s “Dancing Day. “It’s based on Christmas carols and it’s also another Christmas favourite,” See Krutzen page 49

Delhi 2 Dublin transcends geography

From page 13

The next shift in Nayar’s musical education happened when he dropped in on what was then a relatively new phenomenon, a rave. “I was dragged there by a girl who liked me,” Nayar says. “We may or may not have had some recreational substances.” Beyond the glow sticks and pacifiers, the burgeoning subterranean scene proved a haven for the type of musical fusion Nayar was born into. “Electronic music wasn’t really my thing. I had heard Kelvin Singh and some other Asian music producers blending Indian classical music with electronic music . . . but I didn’t really get

it,” he says. “Over a few years of going to lots of raves and experimenting, that whole world opened up to me and I saw how powerful it was.” The music could have been recorded, but there was something essential about being there, according to Nayar. “It kind of reminded me of growing up when I was 14 or 15 and going to these shows downtown in Montreal where there was such a vibe and such an experience around the show. It was a whole experience, and going to a rave back in those days, the early days of raving in Canada was the same thing. So much attention was placed on the experience. The mix of people, the décor, the lighting, the imagery, the music, everything was so tastefully decided, and I think that was a

big influence on me. Even now, when we put on shows, I think mostly about, ‘What experience are we creating?’ Not just about the music that we’re playing but what we’re leaving people with afterwards.” While many Delhi 2 Dublin songs are layered in vocals and instrumentation, the songs almost always start with Nayar designing a beat or a bass line. “If that’s catchy and if there’s a vibe to it, then our singer Sanjay (Seran) will get inspired and start writing to it.” Turn Up the Stereo represents a marriage between Andrew Kim’s guitar and sitar riffs, Nayar’s rhythms, and Seran’s melodies. However, the songwriting of new fiddle player Sara Fitzpatrick will likely be strongly features on the group’s next album, according to Nayar. The term fusion has defined the group, but for Nayar, their music is the logical extension of his upbringing. “When I write music it automatically comes out that way because I’ve got one brown parent and one white parent and I think I’ve spent my whole life trying to bring those two worlds together somehow,” Nayar says. “I tried to write ‘normal’ music. . . . I realized that my unique take on it is what I like to do, and so I shouldn’t force myself to do things that I don’t want to do.” Since forming after a one-night Celtic festival collaboration in 2006, the group has undertaken a rigorous touring schedule, which is a key part of the band’s drive for constant evolution. “We’re playing 150 shows a year. You can’t help but evolve and adapt . . . the essence of the song might be the same but the way you dress it up has to change because things change, and people’s tastes are different now than they were even a couple years ago,” he says. “We’d never want to make the same album twice.” Delhi 2 Dublin is part of a relatively new musical movement that attempts to transcend geography. Even while touring and traveling, many bands and singers remain tied to a certain land, whether they favour Delta blues, New Orleans jazz, the British invasion, the glam rock of Hollywood, or the Seattle anthems of disenchantment dubbed grunge. By marrying the music of India, Pakistan, and Ireland, Delhi 2 Dublin are from Vancouver, B.C. and everywhere else. The group regularly crosses the country in a van with each member occupied by their own interests. “Andrew Kim, our sitar player, is currently obsessed with Plants vs. Zombies, the iPhone game. Sarah watches movies in the back, Sanjay and Ravi spend most of their time driving or listening to music, and I usually am working on some weird track or polishing up the set on my laptop in the backseat,” he says. As a performance approaches, YouTube is a key resource for the group. “Asian Dub Foundation has this recording on YouTube playing Fuji Rock (festival) and I know that our singer Sanj will watch that on repeat to get him stoked.” For Nayar, the song “Blind Faith” by Chase the Status is a frequent source of inspiration. “Whenever I feel like I’m losing the vibe, I just watch that video and I’m like, ‘That’s the vibe. That energy that’s happening there is what I want.’” For the group, backstage is generally a place of quiet anticipation. “Everyone just sort of stops talking, gets really quiet and almost melts into the sofa,” Nayar says. After dedicating their set to an influential band, the group takes the stage, frequently exhorting the crowd to dance, jump, and sing along. “We really try to break down the barrier between the audience and the performer,” Nayar says. “It’s not just about sitting at the back of the room in the dark with your hands in your pockets watching some indie band do their thing. We really try to get everybody involved.” Maintaining harmonious relationships within the band are crucial, according to Nayar. “It requires work. . . . Making the band chemistry the priority, because if we don’t have that then we don’t have anything.”

Krutzen starting busy holiday schedule says Krutzen. Harp & Voices is being conducted by Lars Kaario, Capilano University’s director of choral studies, and founder and director of Laudate Singers. “I tend to work with Lars very often,” says Krutzen. The concert will feature approximately 150 performers, members of the Capilano University Singers and Capilano University Festival Chorus. “I’m really looking forward to it,” says Krutzen. “I think it will just be a really vibrant and fun concert and a nice way to begin the season,” she adds. Kruzen, currently a Vancouver resident, grew up in West Vancouver. She’s the principal harpist of the Vancouver Opera Orchestra and plays with a number ensembles, including Couloir with North Vancouver cellist Ariel Barnes, Trio Verlaine and Vancouver’s Turning Point Ensemble. She teaches at the University of British Columbia and is an avid humanitarian through her work with Malambo Grassroots, a non-profit volunteer-run organization dedicated to community development in southern Zambia. Malambo Grassroots (malambograssroots. ca), is a member-project of Rose Charities Canada. “Our main focus is on education because when you help educate people you’re giving them immense opportunities to forge their own way and create change in their lives. Our scholarship program is probably one of our biggest focuses,” she says. Krutzen has a busy holiday season concert schedule ahead of her. In addition to her shows in North Vancouver this weekend, she is set to perform Friday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 9 at 3:30 p.m. with the Valley Festival Singers at Trinity Christian Reformed Church in Abbotsford. On Saturday, Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 16 at 3 p.m. Krutzen will join the Richmond Chorus at Gilmore Park United Church. Finally, from Dec. 19 to 23 she will join the production of The Nutcracker being presented by the Goh Ballet and members of the Vancouver Opera Orchestra at the Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts. In the New Year, Krutzen and Barnes will pick up where they left off this fall, having spent November travelling throughout Louisiana for a Piatigorsky Foundation Tour with Couloir. Krutzen has worked with the New York City-based foundation for a number of years. “Gregor Piatigorsky was a famous cellist and the stories about him were he’d be travelling the country on the train and the train would stop in a tiny little town and he’d just get off the train and play his cello to anybody who was there,” she says. “It inspired

him to make sure that people always had the opportunity to hear great music no matter where they lived. His grandson Evan Drachman has started this foundation based on his grandfather’s philosophies and ideals and they send out musicians all through the States on tours and mostly into smaller communities.”

As part of the tour, Krutzen and Barnes played a series of free concerts to people from all walks of life in various communities from Monroe to Shreveport. “We really had a wonderful time in Louisiana. I had been there seven years ago just after Hurricane Katrina and it was in a state of emergency,” she says,

adding to go back now and see how far they’ve come proved incredibly powerful. Outside of the foundation tour, they also performed a show in Baton Rouge, and led some master classes before returning to the Lower Mainland. In January, the Couloir due will embark on a Prairie Debut Tour, which will

keep them busy with a host of dates in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba until they’ll return for two concerts in Vancouver in March 2013. They’re anticipating the release of two freshly recorded albums, Couloir’s debut releases, ideally by March at the latest. Wine Dark Sea will feature their three first

commissions, including “Three Meditations on Light” by Jocelyn Morlock, and the second record, Clear Music, will include “Serere,” a piece by Vancouver composer James Maxwell written for harp, cello and electro-acoustics that was commissioned by Ballet Kelowna. For more information, visit

You know the economy is bad when hitmen have to fly coach. The talking heads in the lead-up to the 2008 election serve as a Greek chorus to the action going on in Killing Me Softly, a cynical piece of business that draws parallels between the crime underworld and big government. The film opens with Obama’s promise of change against a litter-strewn empty lot. But not much is likely to change for Russell and Frankie (Ben Mendelsohn and Scoot McNairy), two thugs stagnating in their rundown borough, looking for the next score. The promise of a quick payday comes courtesy of local wise-guy Markie (Ray Liotta), photo supplied who runs an underground gambling circuit. It beats the IN KIlling Me Softly director Andrew Dominick (who also made The Assassination of Jesse James by the dog stealing-and-reselling Coward Robert Ford) crafts a compelling, utterly depressing man’s world full of seedy bars, unimpressive gig that Russell was a part of. homes and the tacky accoutrements of men who didn’t make it.

Political message anything but subtle From page 55 cleanly, things get messy, someone has to pay. But even the idle chat between hitmen has weight if you’re listening, and the accompanying political rhetoric — there’s a robbery set against George Bush’s economics speech — gives the film a fiscal-cliff immediacy, unsubtle though the message may be. Director Andrew Dominick (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) crafts a compelling, utterly depressing

man’s world full of seedy bars, unimpressive homes and the tacky accoutrements of men who didn’t make it. Dominick gets a virtuoso performance out of leading man Pitt, who just keeps getting better. It’s just as well that Killing Me Softly’s release date was bumped until after the U.S. presidential election: Pitt’s vitriolic closing speech is a doozy, and only underscores how much hope and change has been leached from the working class. Had enough Democrats seen the film, it just may have cost Obama the election.

BUSH - Edna Maude Rigby

a longtime resident of West Vancouver passed away peacefully, on Tuesday November 27, 2012 with her son Stephen at her side. Predeceased by her daughter Valentina (Tina) Jones in 1982 and husband John (Jack) Bush in 1983 and survived by her son Stephen and daughter-in-law Vicky Bush (nee Doherty). Edna was the 'most' proud Nana to Melanie Jones Salter (Frank) Jennifer Jones, David (Andrea) Jones, Sean (Claire) Bush, Arin (Jeff) Ellis and Evan Bush. The amazing GG to Elliot, Andrew, Holden and Avery. Edna was born in Manchester England, the township of Cheshire, on December 17, 1914. Edna was the second daughter to Joseph and Annie Rigby. Edna was predeceased by her sister Elsie Fairfield another longtime resident of West Vancouver. Edna (Titch) married her sweetheart John Bush on Valentine’s Day 1935. John returned from action at the end of the Second World War and Edna and John travelled the world and spent time working and living in South Africa. After returning to England in 1950 John and Edna made the decision to immigrate to Canada living in Toronto, Windsor, and Winnipeg before settling in Vancouver where their son Stephen was born in 1952. Edna was involved in several West Vancouver organizations including the Hollyburn Sailing Club, I.O.D.E, West Van Lawn Bowling Club, the Senior’s Centre and a volunteer at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Up until her recent hospitalization she played bridge at least twice a week with her 'Bridge Girls' who helped Edna continue to live her life as independently as possible. There are many people the family would like to acknowledge for their support for Edna during her stay in the Hospital and the Hospice . Diane Hill, Mayzelle Allen, Estelle White, Joan Fraser, Terry McGlashan and Robyn Eaton. Your support was selfless and invaluable. We would also like to thank Melanie and Frank and David and Andrea for your help and support and most of all, to Jennifer Jones who gave up so much of her time to care for her Nana. Thank you. Also thanks to Dr. Early, Dr. Walker and Dr. Malon at Lions Gate Hospital for their care and long distance calls and to the staff of the North Shore Hospice who provided such a loving and invaluable service to Edna in her final days. Private cremation has taken place. As per her wishes we invite family and friends to join together in a gathering to celebrate the life of Edna Bush at the West Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club on Friday, January 18, 2013 at 6:00 p.m.

Dec. 30, 1932 - Nov. 23, 2012 With sadness we announce the passing of Russ on November 23, 2012 at the age of 79. Russ was born in Manigotagan, Manitoba. As a young man he travelled to many destinations and spent 12 years as a miner in various mines. He moved to the Sunshine Coast in 1966, where he thought was a perfect place to raise a family and work as a driller, and CAT operator building logging roads. Russ retired at age 64. Russ was a hardworking and proud man. He had a love for the outdoors, hockey, and a passion for singing and music. Along with his guitar and his band, the Sunshine Ramblers, Russ entertained at venues for over 40 years, and is loved by many for his style of singing country music. He continued to sing and play well into his 70’s. Russ coached hockey and played actively until the age of 74. A beloved husband to Olga for 53 years; a loving father to Brenda, Rod, Cindy, Lori (Gary); and a grandfather to Brittany (Mark), Jordan, Bryson, Riley, MorganJane, Amberleigh, Brody, Shay and Carlyn; and a recent great grandfather to Natalie. He is also survived by his daughters Donna (David) and Debbie (Bobby) and their families. Over the past few years, Russ enjoyed spending time with his family, watching his grandchildren grow up and chatting and visiting with friends over a morning coffee. Russ’ music, bright personality and warm smile will be missed by many. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2012 at the Royal Canadian Legion, 747 Gibsons Way, Gibsons, BC from 1 to 5 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations to be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, in Russ’ name.

FORBES, Anna Dorothy Aug 02, 1914 - Nov 21, 2012 Dorothy passed away peacefully in her home on November 21, 2012 with her family by her side. She is survived by her twin daughters Elizabeth (Stuart) and Anna (Gary) and her two grandchildren Adam and Todd. Her family also includes two nieces, a nephew, and their extended family. She is predeceased by her loving husband Ray, her parents Anna and George Bartholomew, and her brother Bob (Irene). Dorothy enjoyed travelling with her friends and was a lover of music and the arts. She was an avid ice skater, tennis player and hockey fan. She had a great fondness for animals - dogs in particular. Her most cherished role in life was that of being a mother, grandmother and wife. Remembered for her kindness and accepting nature, she made everyone feel genuinely welcome, accepted and supported. Quiet and humble, Dorothy was so much more than the sum of her parts; a great lady in all respects. She will be greatly missed by all of us. She had so much love in her heart. Dorothy leaves behind the following message, "Love to all my family and friends who made my journey so wonderful - thank you." A Celebration of Dorothy’s life will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 1:00 pm at Highlands United Church, 3255 Edgemont Blvd, North Vancouver, BC. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to First United Church.

FOX, Charles Frederick (Fred) Born with cerebral palsy (CP) in 1966, Fred (Charles) fought to live life to the fullest on his own terms, inspiring many people along the way with his positive attitude, strength, sense of humour, and tenacity. His sudden, unexpected passing leaves us bereft and sad beyond words. He was predeceased by his mother, Margaret, and is survived by his father Terence, sisters Kelly & Sally, niece Julie(Hooman), nephew Ben, aunts Mavis, Carol & Ann (UK), uncles Roger (Shaheen) & John (Jenny; UK), and a host of boisterous cousins and their children. Also grieving are his many friends, among them retired West Van firefighters, West Van bus drivers, fellow CP athletes, plus the caregivers & patients he met along his life’s journey, especially in the last 18 months while recovering from a fractured femur in LGH and Evergreen. Fred was determined, loyal, could be charming, and was acerbic when he felt it was merited. In his younger days, Fred enjoyed field sports, winning several medals in CP sports events in Bruges, Ft Worth, New York & Windsor. Fred rode horses, coached sports, and taught computer & life skills. He loved fishing, hunting and Labrador retrievers. Lately it would take Fred an hour just to put on his socks, and he was constantly in pain, but he was always upbeat and kept us all laughing. We miss him so deeply that nothing can ever be the same. A memorial service will be held at the Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Van at 2pm Dec 4. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation or your favourite charity.

PHAGOORA, Jagdish Singh (Migi) July 19, 1956 - Nov. 24, 2012 It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Migi Phagoora following a short battle with cancer. Migi was a wonderful care-free spirit who brought laughter and joy to everyone around him. Around Migi, you would always feel welcomed and you could expect to be treated without judgment. Without formal training or a user manual, Migi could fix anything. He had an inherent brilliance which enabled him to repair anything from a truck engine to a toy car and everything in between. Above all else, Migi valued the happiness of his family and friends. His selfless nature and generosity made him the perfect Grandfather. Migi was taken from us far too soon and he will be dearly missed. Migi is survived by his wife Daljit, his children Shauna and Ruman, and his grandchildren Sajen and Samaya. Family and friends are invited to attend the funeral service held this Saturday, December 1st at 12:30pm at the Five Rivers Society, 7410 Hopcott Rd, Delta.

Tom was born in Ladner, B.C. and grew up in North Vancouver. Tom in earlier years loved to hunt, fish and hike up the North Shore mountains.

Thieves don’t care for green vehicles Brendan McAleer Contributing Writer

A biweekly roundup of automotive news, good, bad and just plain weird:

Design Cast your eye along VW’s current lineup of sedans, and don’t be alarmed if you come away feeling less than inspired. Taking a page from the early BMW playbook, Volkswagen has kept their three-box offerings Teutonically plain, squared-off and conservative to a fault. Into this off-the-peg environment, the CC sashays up like a tailored Italian suit. It still speaks the same corporate language, but the shape now flows like higher-cost German pseudo-coupes. While the CC shares a wheelbase with the Passat, it’s longer, lower and wider by just

Car thieves uninterested in green When it comes to automotive theft, the usual suspects are always at the top of the list of cars that appeal to the Usual Suspects. Not that the Civic and the Mazda3 are particularly easy to break into, just that thieves know learning the tricks of getting into popular models can have them in and out in a flash. Then there are those machines that are stolen for a joyride, notably the early Subaru STi, which didn’t have a passive immobilizer from the factory — proof that anti-theft systems make all the difference. But what of those cars with a different sort of anti-theft system? Witness the Toyota Prius which, according to the U.S.based National Insurance Crime Bureau, has a theft rate approximately oneseventh that of other vehicles. Why no sticky-fingered, balaclava-wearing love for the little hybrid? One hates to turn to conjecture, but perhaps thieves are worried about being electrocuted while trying to bypass the ignition systems. Either that, or

THE 2013 Volkswagen CC has the same general design as other VW’s, but stylish little touches like its smoothed out bumper and hood and sculpted side skirts make it stand out from the rest of the automaker’s lineup.

2013 Volkswagen CC

VW CC is Euro-style sweet EVER wonder why you drive a “sedan” while the neighbour has a “coupé” or perhaps a “cabriolet”?

By and large, the nomenclature of automotive body styling comes from the terminology of horse-drawn carriages — cabriolet, for instance, comes from the French cabrioler (to prance or caper), and describes a lightweight two-seater with a folding roof. Over the years, these horsey traditions transformed into the traditions of horsepower, adding in specific terms like roadster and speedster, and a rare favourite, the “shootingbrake.” While grey areas and

Grinding Gears

Brendan McAleer overlap exist, for the most part, these descriptors are absolutes: a coupe has two doors; a sedan has four. However, with auto manufacturers always striving to entice the buying dollar with

something fresh, something new, something avant-garde, all the rules have gone out the window. Mercedes now makes a four-door shooting-brake that’s really a cramped wagon. BMW builds a “Gran Coupe” that’s a low-roofed four-door — with 6-series pricing. The purist recoils, but then so must those long-lost horseand-carriage types have been horrified at the noisy, loud and dangerous contraptions that came speeding along the formerly quiet and leafy lanes. How, then, to properly react to this, the Passat’s sleeker cousin? Volkswagen has dubbed it the CC for “Comfort Coupe.” The question: is it a handsome (sic) cab, or merely a hackney cash grab?

Aussie cop car a turbocharged tribute to Mad Max

High-precision Germanic build quality found throughout cabin From page 68 an inch or so. As an update for 2013, it now also shares its more conservative cousin’s three-row, broadened grille treatment, flanked by bi-xenon headlights with standard LED running lights — a feature stolen from Audi. There’s a smoothing out of the front bumper and hood, a re-sculpting of the side-skirts and a slightly less rounded treatment for the rear taillights. VW nuts might notice the differences, everybody else will simply ask, “are you sure that’s a Volkswagen?” Environment Popping open the frameless-window’d door (roll down the windows and the front doors at least are coupelike), the inside of the CC is

quite clearly differentiated from the North American market Passat. Remember, VW recently pumped up the volume for Canadian and American consumers, making their mid-size sedan bigger than its European counterpart. The interior of the CC, on the other hand, is a more direct link to the high-precision Germanic build quality VW enthusiasts know and love. The cabin is very well put-together, Audi-eque in build quality and in materials. The two-tone seats are particularly nice (with deep side-bolsters, which may not be everyone’s cup of tea), as is the effort made to employ plenty of aluminium-style trim. Naturally, shaving inches off the roofline results in somewhat lowered headroom, but not that you’d notice up

front. In back there’s enough space for those up to the five-foot-ten mark (and not much beyond), but not if you have to plum yourself in the middle seat. Incidentally, that is a change for the CC this year: previous models were four-seaters only, the new 2013 models will be all five-seaters for the Canadian market. Trunk space is also excellent — really, there’s not much to find fault with over the larger Passat. It might be cosier inside See CC page 70

rear-wheel-drive sedan, with a supercharged V-8 engine cranking out – hold on to your hat with the little corks on it — 536 h.p.! ‘Strewth! At a price tag somewhere north of $100,000 (after currency conversion), don’t expect fleets of these things to be battling sheep-rustlin’ jackeroos in hopped-up utes. This one-off is more a way for the Oz Police to connect with the racing community and keep fast driving to the track, not the street.

Weapon films, and the downward slope being the lunacy of the past several years, you have to pick Mad Max as the launching point. But the 1979 apocalyptic cult classic had another star too: a heavily modified Ford Falcon coupe dubbed The Interceptor. Somebody at Aussie Fuzz HQ has been watching a little too much Road Warrior, and commissioned a rather special Pursuit model of their Falcon four-door sedan. Remember, this is the same Australia where the Ford vs. Holden Super-V-8 racing championships found it necessary to restrict spectators to just 24 beers. Per day. Each. The Falcon in question here is a four-door,

the black-hearted blaggards are simply uninterested in saving the planet. Rumour mill: The return of the GNX? It is, without a doubt, one of my favourite automobiles of all time. The boxy, blackedout Buick GNX of the late 1980s oozed menace, and why wouldn’t it, with the capability to blow the doors off a Ferrari Testarossa. Some wag at Car and Driver came up with the tagline, “Lord Vader, your car is ready,” and away the turbocharged Regal roared off into the public’s imagination. However, for decades now, Buick has turned to the Beige Side: less light-sabering and Galaxy domination, more golf sticks and sofa-like cruising. The pot was first stirred with the reintroduction of the Regal nameplate, and the return of turbocharging to Buick in the GS. A sporty little front-drive sport sedan, the Regal GS can be got with a six-speed manual, and drives much less Buicky than you’d expect. However zippy it might be, it pales when compared to the current rumoured product — a re-badging of the Cadillac ATS’s lightweight rear-drive platform. Perhaps to be called the Grand National once more, this rumoured sport sedan may receive the V-8 out of the Corvette and a manual transmission. Heady stuff indeed, but remember that

the original sharpie’d shoebox could blitz the world’s fastest sheetmetal to the point that they had to underrate the performance so as not to embarrass ‘Vette owners. Hopefully the modern GNX will pack at least as much punch as the supercharged ZL1 Camaro. Ford Fiesta to get two flavours of turbo In one of the more clever PR stunts we’ve seen lately, Ford brought their tiny threecylinder eco-boost engine to the L.A. Auto Show as carry-on baggage. What better way to show off its compact size: if you can cram an engine in an overhead bin while an angry queue of fellow passengers glares daggers at you, then fitting it under the hood of the Fiesta should be no problem. Numbers aren’t quite out yet for the 1.0-litre turbo, but expect around 125 horsepower, not bad for the little tyke, and certain to put out Pontiac Firefly levels of fuel economy. But that’s not the only turbo destined for Ford’s subcompact. Also due on our shores fairly soon is the Fiesta ST, which joins the Focus ST as marking a beachhead for the Fast Ford hothatchbacks principally enjoyed by Europeans alone. The Canada-bound model should get 197 h.p., which is excellent for such a small car — head-to-head comparisons with the Veloster Turbo and the Sonic RS will be a Lilliputian World War III. Australian police go all Mad Max If one views the career of Mel Gibson as a parabola, with the apogee being the Lethal • • • • • • •

popular VW Passat From page 69

the CC due to its smaller footprint, but a more cockpit-like feel is surely desirable in a sports sedan. One minor irritation: the chunky key which must be slotted into the dash to start the car — at this price point, where is the dratted pushbutton starter? Actually, two minor irritations: I can’t say I’m a fan of the new VW group craze for the electric parking brake. Performance Underneath my tester’s tweaked hood lies the ubiquitous four-cylinder two-litre turbocharged engine that VW crams into everything from the GTi to the Tiguan to the coffee machine in the Wolfsburg factory break room. If you’ve experienced one, you’ve experienced them all: gutsy, grumbly, charming if not particularly smooth. Stuffing a 200 h.p. four-pot underneath the nose of an admittedly swoopy mid-size sedan doesn’t seem like a recipe for thrills in these heady days of 270+ h.p. Toyota Camrys. However, the numbers only tell half the story. Like the Jetta GLi, the CC drives like a much smaller car than it actually is. Slot the quickshifting DSG gearbox into sport, and the car wakes up and grips through the corners with a surprising amount of zip. If you’re wondering, the more-powerful V-6 model isn’t half as much fun — the joy here is in the perfect pairing of lightweight four-cylinder turbo and snappy transmission. Of course, there are limits to the fun. Despite feeling very well-sorted indeed, the CC is no GTi nor GLi. Even so, it drives well enough to justify the price premium over the regular Passat — think of it as getting the more stylish interior and exterior thrown in for free. Features Both the $35,125 Sportline and next-stepup-the-rung $39,975 Highline are available with the 2.0T engine. Standard features include Bluetooth handsfree, bi-xenon headlamps with adaptive curve-following, iPod connectivity and a rearview backup camera. The Highline alone can be spec’d up with the 280 h.p. V-6 engine, though you lose the dual-clutch DSG in favour of a regular automatic transmission which is serviceable but not as quick-witted. A six-speed manual is also available for both, rare in these automatic-happy days. Bumping up to the Highline also adds attractive turbine-style 18-inch alloys, proper

leather seat insets, and has a Panoramic sunroof as standard (this is a $1,400 option on the Sportline). A $2,200 Technology package incorporates touch-screen navigation and a 10-speaker, 600-watt Dynaudio premium sound system. The top-of-the-range V-6 Highline hits the scales at $48,475 and includes all previous options as standard, along with that 3.6-litre powerhouse. Fuel economy is officially 10.2 litres/100 kilometres city and 6.4 l/100 km on the highway. Observed real-world figures were reasonably close, particularly for highway consumption, but it should be noted that premium fuel is recommended. Green light Attractive styling; few practicality compromises; sport-sedan handling; premium feel. Stop sign Rear-seat headroom limited for adults; premium pricing; no push-button start. The checkered flag The Euro-style VW sedan you always wanted. Competitors Volkswagen Passat Perhaps a bit too on the nose? Still, if you’re in the market for a mid-sized, four-door Volkswagen, why on Earth wouldn’t you also take a long, hard look at the Passat? While parking the pair side-by-side certainly makes the CC look the sleeker of the two, the Passat has its own conservative, Jetta-writ-large charm, and it’s certainly more capacious on the inside. Less expensive too, and with a variety of engine options that have enough power to impart some fun-to-drive factor. Even so, the Passat is the volume car while the CC is niche — the more exclusive machine is a greater pleasure to drive, and has a more cockpit-like feel to the interior. Nissan Maxima Not much larger in footprint than littlebrother Altima, the Maxima is pitched as Nissan’s premier sedan. While the old four-doorsportscar moniker might not be entirely deserved (it’s less a corner-carver than a highway cruiser), the Maxima is still very engaging to drive, with quick steering and a snarling V-6. It’s also as smooth as anything, though anybody used to a regular automatic transmission will need to adapt to the surging motorboat feel of the continuously variable transmission. The CC’s DSG/six-speed-manual options are a clear advantage here, if you want to hit a twisty road.
