Neptune plans to double coal export Critics point to dust, global warming

Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A public relations battle is brewing over plans by North Vancouver’s Neptune Terminals to potentially double the volume of coal it handles. Neptune currently has two applications in to Port Metro Vancouver, involving changing and upgrading equipment to allow coal trains to be unloaded faster at the terminal. If approved, the expansion plan would increase the terminal’s handling of metallurgical coal from current volumes of between eight and nine million tonnes annually to 18 million tonnes. Jim Belsheim, president of Neptune, says the terminal’s expansion will boost the local economy and create more than 180 new jobs. “We’re pretty proud of our project,” he said. But coal exports are increasingly coming under fire from advocacy groups for both their effect on global warming and potential health impacts.

NV man questions assessments Area definitions appear to affect valuation Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

From page 1

ALAN Campbell lives on the east side of Sutherland Avenue. And that, he says, has made all the difference when it comes to a recent assessment of his property value. Campbell said after reading that home assessments on the North Shore had started to slip this year, he was surprised to discover his own assessment had gone up by about seven per cent — from $866,900 to $923,700. Campbell says his house is nothing special. “It’s old and it’s small,” he said. “It’s a basic rectangle built around 1960” — with less than 1,000 square feet on the main floor. “There’s no way anyone would pay $924,000 for this lot,” he said.

More capacity means 34 tankers a month

barrels of diluted bitumen per day, more than double the current 300,000. But if the National Energy Board approves its latest expansion designs, that will climb to 890,000, according Mike Davies, Kinder Morgan spokesman. The announcement came without prior notice for Tsleil-Waututh leadership though it was not surprising, Thomas said. “We definitely figured it would be more than what they were saying initially,” she said. “And what’s to stop them from pushing for more barrels per day. One million? Two million? Where will it end?” For tanker traffic, it means instead of the approximately five Aframax-size tankers that traverse the Second Narrows each month now, there will be upwards of 34, each with a capacity of 585,000 barrels. Under the previous plan, Kinder Morgan expected up to 25 tankers each month. “There’s no change of the size of the ships and we’re not asking for the narrows to be dredged as part of the project. Those things remain the same,” Davies said. Despite a change in application, the company doesn’t plan to restart its public consultations or to hold new public information meetings with up-todate information. The company held two open houses on the North Shore in

November. The first meetings were largely meant to introduce the project and begin taking feedback, which was a success, Davies said. “Our consultation program is ongoing so I don’t feel the need to repeat the sessions that we’ve had. Aside from the increase in the number of tankers, there’s not a huge change from the information that was provided,” he said The company never included the possibility of a higher capacity pipeline in its original public information because they didn’t want to create confusion, Davies said. Kinder Morgan plans to submit its application to the National Energy Board in late 2013, but it still has several hurtles to clear, including consultation with First Nations. But that will prove difficult, as the Tsleil-Waututh have cut off communication with Kinder Morgan, according Thomas. There are “a couple” other bands along the pipeline route using the same tactic, Davies said. “We’re making great headway with the majority of the bands along our pipeline route. We’ve been running since 1953 and we have existing relationships with most of the bands,” he said. “We will continue to reach out to them and we continue to be interested in understanding directly their concerns about the project and to work with them to try to mitigate those.” Ultimately, the duty to consult with First Nations lies with the federal government, Davies added.

train coming into the terminal each day. But Belsheim said the trains come off the rail bridge and directly on to Neptune’s site where they are moved with a mechanical device run by electricity. Cars carrying coal are sprayed with a sealant when they are loaded to minimize coal dust, he said. “Coal is very safe,” he said. “That’s an important message to establish.” Belsheim said Neptune hosted an open house on the project attended by 600 people and has consulted the local neighbourhood extensively. “We’re pretty serious about wanting to be a good neighbour,” he said. Will Horter, executive director of the Dogwood Initiative that ran the anti-coal campaign, disputes that. “There’sverylittleknowledge of the plans of the port,” he said. Horter also doesn’t agree that coal is harmless. “There’s known health impacts in neighbourhoods,” he said. Coal trains have been shown to arrive at their destinations lighter than they depart, said Horter, because of all the coal dust that gets blown or washed away in transit. He added coal dust contains heavy metals that contribute to health problems and have been shown to be carcinogenic. Others are also concerned about the possible health impacts of the port’s coal expansion plans. Recently, the heads of two Metro Vancouver health authorities wrote to the port to ask that health authorities be formally recognized and consulted when plans are being considered. Horter said currently there is little opportunity for public input when the port is making decisions with potentially large impacts. “The port is fairly cavalier about their accountability,” he said. In contrast, a proposed coal port at Cherry Point, Washington in the United States is subject to a far more vigorous public process, he said. Both the Dogwood Initiative and the environmental group Voters Taking Action on Climate Change have raised concerns about the impact of burning coal on global climate change. The carbon emissions from exported coal aren’t tallied against Canada, “because it’s not burned here. . . .” said Horter. “The impact is the same.” Belsheim said the metallurgical coal handled by Neptune is needed in the chemical reaction with iron ore to create steel — a long lasting and heavily recycled product. That’s very different from thermal coal burned for power generation, he said. Horter said regardless of what it’s used for, “Burning coal produces the same pollution.”

Flu season ugly as forecast We’ve had it easy the last few years, says medical health officer

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

AFTER a few quiet years, influenza is rampant this season, with a significant spike in hospitalizations and deaths associated with influenza in some parts of the province. Vancouver Coastal Health, which oversees the North Shore as well as many communities in B.C., has reported a slight increase in flu cases this season relative to the last few uneventful flu seasons. However, the Fraser Health Authority, which looks after British Columbians in cities including Burnaby and Surrey, has reported three times the number of flu-related deaths in residential care facilities compared to the last three years combined. “This year is much more severe than the last several years, but not more severe than the year before that,” said Dr. Brian O’Connor, Vancouver Coastal Health’s medical health officer for the North Shore. “It’s just that for the last few years we’ve had a very, very quiet influenza season.” Anyone who has not received a flu shot is required to don a surgical mask when visiting a residential care facility, following the Fraser Health Authority’s decision to declare the flu outbreak a health hazard. The decision will likely slow down the spread of influenza, according to O’Connor. “He’s looking at it from the point of view that if he (FHA chief medical health officer Dr. Paul Van Buynder) doesn’t do something to try to prevent an influenza outbreak from occurring in a facility, it could go on all season,” O’Connor said. The norovirus, a form of gastroenteritis sometimes confused

with the flu, has also been spreading, according to O’Connor. In the case of the norovirus, the symptoms tend to be nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Flu symptoms generally consist of fever, cough, runny eyes and nose, and feelings of extreme fatigue. “People will make comments like: ‘I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus,’” O’Connor said. There are a few fairly reliable treatments for flu sufferers, according to O’Connor. “You can obviously get immunized. It’s not 100 per cent effective, but it’s the best that we have at the moment,” he said. For the unfortunate ones who have already contracted the flu, O’Connor said he sometimes recommends an antiviral medication sold under the name Tamiflu. “You should try and take it within the first 48 hours of the symptom onset for it to be most effective,” he said. While alcohol-based hand sanitizers can augment soap and water hand-washing, recent research suggests it is not a substitute, particularly in preventing the spread of the norovirus. In a study of 161 long-term care facilities in the United States, norovirus outbreaks occurred six times more often in facilities where hand sanitizers were used as often or more often than soap and water hand-washing, according to research published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. “We do rigorously want people to practise hand hygiene and we most recommend washing your hands frequently with soap and water,” O’Connor said. This year’s flu outbreak comes on the heels of the province’s attempt to mandate flu shots for all health-care workers who come into contact with patients at publicly funded facilities. Approximately 67 per cent of Vancouver Coastal Health workers got flu shots this winter, according to Anna Marie D’Angelo, media relations officer with VCH. School absenteeism has not risen significantly in West or North Vancouver schools, according to communications reps from each school district. “Most kids are well and at school,” said Victoria Miles, communications manager with North Vancouver school district..

Pipefitting P

RETTY much all of the recent pipeline debate has been about Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Project as the National Energy Board’s hearings are underway in Vancouver. This week has been marred with headlines about a lack of public access, protestors crashing the hearings, and the National Energy Board’s total refusal to consider the environmental impacts of pipelines in the big picture. But a second pipeline with much greater local implications is in the works. If the NEB approves Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion from Alberta to Burnaby, we will not have weekly oil tanker trips from Burrard Inlet, but daily. It’s not too soon to start thinking about how we want those hearings to

play out. Top of the list would be holding the hearings in an open venue large enough for anyone to come and watch in person. You can’t call it a public hearing if the public isn’t allowed in to hear what’s being said, as we’re seeing this week at the Sheraton Wall Centre. Holding the hearings in such a fashion not only fuels the cynical theories that approving the pipelines is a foregone conclusion, it incites the very activism, gate crashing and disruption it was intended to prevent. And rightly so. When it comes time for the NEB to listen to stakeholders’ concerns, praise and condemnation for Kinder Morgan’s proposal, the process must not only be beyond reproach, it must appear to be beyond reproach.

What they learned in a year on the job

IN time, as the Gershwins mused, the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble, but love for West Vancouver is here to stay. As proven by the following. I asked West Van’s three rookie councillors and first-term mayor to write essays on their first 12 months at town hall, no looking up the answers. Bright students. Some droll wit. Slightly condensed for space reasons: Nora Gambioli: “Municipal government operations and issues are incredibly complex and interesting. The substantive work of council is more about being a ‘judge’ than I had anticipated; weighing the interests of those directly affected, precedent, and the other 44,000 residents who did not have a chance to attend a meeting, speak or write to council, or who are not yet old enough to do so, requires careful reasoning and difficult choices. “As an educator at heart,

straight weeks in November (thanks to evening meetings) . . . husband not amused! “So far, I love this work.” Mary-Ann Booth: “I have met dozens of smart and thoughtful residents who care deeply about this community. This has been very much a learning year for me, for while I had some understanding of our diversity through service as a school trustee, it has been deepened vis-a-vis seniors, First Nations, new Canadians, and those who struggle financially. “It is often assumed that councillors receive a great deal of negative correspondence, but I have found the opposite to be true: most of the feedback I get is respectful, constructive, and even at times inspiring. “I’m particularly pleased with the progress on new initiatives to support and engage our youth, including a revitalized youth centre. . . . We are off to a great start this new year as we open two new wonderful additions to our community — the new Teen Centre at our much-loved

library, and the just-completed salmon rearing pond in Memorial Park, both of which only came about through unique collaboration between the municipality and its dedicated, engaged citizenry.” Mayor Michael Smith: “A priority during the past year has been to improve both the look and the vitality of Ambleside. The village atmosphere needs to be retained, but parts of Ambleside need to be refreshed. This spring we are making plans to take this to the public for its feedback. “While we have had no property tax rate increase for the second year, I am somewhat disappointed by the pace of our review of the programs and services we offer. To help accomplish this, I have scheduled monthly public council meetings in 2013 that will deal only with financial issues and economic challenges.” On political service: “You have to manage time effectively. I believe it is important that we ensure that citizens with careers can serve

on council and offer their talents to the community. “In summary, I have enjoyed the past year and look forward to the future.” Personable Craig Cameron was first to express enthusiasm, but his reflective essay just missed my deadline. Wait for it. ••• Speaking of essays, I crashed the Fresh St. Market openingeve party in my university student garb and used the power of the press to avoid getting tossed out. Invitees included suppliers, consultants and the distinguished. “That’s a supermarket!” marvelled one, examining the lush seafood counter. “I want them!” a woman greedily hissed, staring at some sexy crab cakes. The high-end counters dramatically seduced the eye, all right. In contrast the prosaic canned goods aisles seemed narrow and shy. Summed up, the “village” Mayor Smith referred to above looks as if it’ll be crushed out of existence between the glossy new store and the development Grosvenor seeks on the police station site.

But — hold on. There’s competition for the humble (and sharp) shopper’s dollar: Example, a couple of “ethnic” markets in the 1400-block of Marine Drive sell produce often sharply below typical supermarket prices. ••• Delightful: Minister of State for Seniors and West Vancouver-Capilano MLA Ralph Sultan, a coltish 70something, honouring ageless 95-year-old music man Dal Richards with the title Hepcat Laureate.

Avoiding mistakes key to election victory

WITH the election campaign now just a little more than 12 weeks away, every day becomes precious to both major parties as they march towards the showdown.

Because the B.C. Liberals are the ones fighting to climb out of a big hole, any day that isn’t doing precisely that becomes a lost one, and the available days for recovery are slowly running out. So things like the needless controversy by the B.C. Liberals to not reappoint John Doyle as the province’s auditorgeneral become an even bigger problem for them, as the affair has used up valuable time in the news cycle, and there aren’t too many news cycles left before the campaign. Mistakes and controversies are much more critical for both sides with each passing day because there is less and less time to rectify things and move the public’s mind on to something else. Given the B.C. Liberals’ uncanny ability to cause self-inflicted wounds (the latest being MLA John Slater quitting the caucus to sit as an independent after the party went behind his back, looking for another candidate to challenge his nomination), the odds are good more will occur over the next few weeks, thus making that boulder they’re trying to push up that hill seem even bigger. The Doyle matter also raises question about who, exactly, is running the show on the government side. Again, with so little time left to the campaign kick-off, you’d think the B.C. Liberals would realize the need for a

cohesive, strategic approach in governing. In the Doyle affair, the premier’s office insisted she gave no direction to her members on the committee weighing Doyle’s future, which seems strange given the obvious political downside flowing from such a decision. That suggests the backbenchers who sit on the committee overseeing the appointment have the unchecked power to plunge their side into controversy practically on the eve of an election, hardly proof a cohesive central strategy actually exists. More shoals undoubtedly lie ahead for the B.C. Liberals, not the least of which is the February budget, which will be a tough sell to a skeptical public, still smarting from the dishonest budget numbers carried into the last election campaign by the party. That budget will be introduced just two months from the beginning of the campaign, and may become yet another example of a brushfire the B.C. Liberals will have little time to extinguish. As we draw closer to the campaign, about the only sign of some kind of strategy coming from government are

those relentless television and radio ads, which brag that B.C. stands alone almost in the entire world when it comes to having a strong economy. This ad campaign’s message is essentially the B.C. Liberals’ central message in the upcoming campaign. Twinned to it, however, is another one: the NDP can’t be trusted to form government, and party leader Adrian Dix is the most untrustworthy one of them all. So with each passing day, look for signs of nervousness coming from the NDP camp. Dix is popular (or at least more popular than Clark), yet he is also relatively unknown and therefore not defined in the public mind. In fact, Dix’ image and public opinion about him may be the single biggest variable in the months ahead. The public’s negative feelings about the B.C. Liberals and Clark have been entrenched for more than a year, while Dix is fertile ground. So expect a relentlessly negative and personal campaign by the B.C. Liberals (and, perhaps more importantly, their allies in the corporate community) in the weeks ahead, one aimed at Dix’ head. The campaign may well smack of desperation, which wouldn’t be surprising given the gap between the two parties and the fact time is running out fast. The challenge for the NDP may well be to simply hang on and hope the next few months pass quickly, with more hiccups and missteps from their opponents’ than on their own side. So far Dix has shown discipline, and his challenge will be to keep his own team in check. Every week that passes where the focus is on B.C.

Liberals mistakes is another reason for a sigh of relief on the NDP side. Every week that sees the B.C. Liberals troublefree may well increasingly shift

the spotlight on to Dix and his party. So get out your calendars and start crossing off the days. The official campaign starts

in mid-April, but the real campaign has already begun. Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

More nurses would improve LGH care Dear Editor: I read your Jan. 13 story, Nurses Protest Hospital Staff Levels, and completely agree with the nurses and their very real concerns. I had surgery at Lions Gate Hospital in October of last year that required a stay on the sixth floor for three days. As I had never been a patient in a hospital, other than during the delivery of my children, I learned a great deal about the state of the health-care system at my local hospital. I had about six different nurses caring for me during my stay; never the same nurse twice. The flow of information, understandably, was sometimes lost with shift changes. I quickly learned to stay on top of my progress and ask for what I felt I needed. But, many could not. There were several very loud, obviously mentally affected seniors on the floor (one in the bed next to me) who could be heard for all hours of the night, yelling etc. The nurses attempted to keep them settled as best they could, but clearly these patients needed more than what could be provided. All of us were left to endure unsettled sleep while we were trying to heal. All of the patients in my room, including myself, were waiting for

semi-private rooms. None of us were able to get one. The stress that these circumstances created for each of us was unnecessary and needs addressing. Despite these examples, each and every one of the nurses presented as professional, informative and caring. It was clear they were all just doing the best they could in less than desirable circumstances. The physical building was less than acceptable. The new surgical department was lovely, but the sixth floor was crowded in the hallways with supplies etc., and the shower room across the hall was old and in desperate need of repair. It often flooded the area. The food was absolutely awful and I wasn’t once asked about any food preference or allergy information. Moreover, we never knew when it would arrive. I was astonished that a healthcare environment would serve such horrible “food” to patients. That was just not right. So, sleep and nutrition, two key components needed for healing were not there at Lions Gate. These things have got to improve. Joanne Penney North Vancouver

Locally employed?

Dear Editor: Your Jan. 11 story, DNV Pledges Consultation on LV Towers, has Hazen Colbert asking District of North Vancouver council “Where will the residents of Lynn Valley be locally employed in good quality jobs such that they can walk to work?” In short, not on this planet. The good quality jobs are in downtown Vancouver, or possibly in central Surrey, or, for some skilled trades that ply our streets daily, all over the place, or, for medical professions, around Lions Gate Hospital, or, for some old-style high-pay jobs, down by the port. “Locally employed”? Maybe, in some cases. Walk to work? That’s a joke — as of now, walking to work would be as a mall store employee, or a supermarket cashier, or in a food outlet (no disrespect intended, I admire anyone who can smilingly serve me a meal after spending hours on their feet). That’s a summary of things as they are. If you want to develop and exploit the unused dirt patches around the town centre, you could draw more taxes and business for the mall and around by building for the people who want a more-or-less reasonable place to live with some convenience and transit opportunities to go where the “quality” jobs are. Or not. Depending on which world you’re willing to stop griping and live on. Anthony Buckland North Vancouver

2 cards in 1 won’t work

Dear Editor: The decision by the provincial government to amalgamate the health-care and driver’s licence cards into one service card will, in my opinion, lead to a number of unexpected situations, the least of which is the loss of separation of the two services. Imagine the following scenario: A driver is stopped by the police for an infraction and the officer duly confiscates the service card. An unconnected emergency subsequently arises and the driver has to seek medical attention at a clinic or hospital emergency ward. The medical facilities won’t admit him without identification, so now what does the patient do? John Lempriere North Vancouver

INQUIRING REPORTER INFLUENZA outbreaks are up slightly in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, but this year’s flu strain has been virulent enough to be declared a health hazard by the Fraser Health Authority. The number of people who have been hospitalized due to influenza is up 400 per cent this year. The number of deaths associated with flu is also up by an alarming rate. Are you planning to get a flu shot, or do you have all the antibodies you need? Find us on Facebook or Twitter and tell us what you think. —Jeremy Shepherd

Katja Walther North Vancouver “I didn’t get a flu shot. I have never got a shot in my life.”

Kaschelle Thiessen West Vancouver “I’m going to. I’m in university fulltime I don’t have time to get sick because I have two kids. We have to protect the immunocompromised people”

Did you get a flu shot this year?

Jordan Wolfe North Vancouver “I just don’t get flu shots because I figure I’ll get the same thing from getting the flu and getting over it.”

Teresa Palmer North Vancouver “I did get one because I work in the medical industry and we work with seniors, and it’s not just about us, it’s protecting them as well.”

Russell Johnstone North Vancouver “No, I never had a flu shot in my life.”

RCMP plead for missing man info NORTH Vancouver RCMP are renewing their call for help in finding a man who was reported missing late last summer.

Timothy Cameron, 53, was last seen at a bus stop on Marine Drive at Pemberton Avenue around 11 a.m. Aug. 18. Cameron is known to leave town to work for cash on commercial fishing boats, but it is unlike him to be gone this long, according to police. “We’d like to get this message out to Tim Cameron, and we would like to talk to him. He is not in any trouble,” said Cpl. Sue Tupper, head North Vancouver RCMP’s Timothy Cameron missing persons unit. “We just want to confirm his well-being.” Beyond reaching out to Cameron, Tupper is hoping anyone who may have seen him or spoken with him will contact the missing persons unit at 604-969-7568. Cameron is six feet tall with a slim build, grey hair and blue eyes. — Brent Richter

Walton steers region’s transit for 3rd term

The District of North Vancouver mayor, newly reappointed to the position by acclamation, wants to use his third year at the helm to end the political impasse that he says has prevented the Lower Mainland’s transit system from growing to meet demand. “In the two years I’ve been chairing it, we’ve been treading water,” said Walton. “We haven’t made any significant progress, except to continue to . . . work as well as we can within the existing governance structure.” While transit ridership has been growing by leaps and bounds, said Walton, the level of service hasn’t been rising to match, leaving all parts of the region underserved, and some parts — notably southern and

together,” said Walton. The mayor doesn’t want to see the governance model revert to the old system, where decisions lay entirely with municipal leaders; rather, he advocates for a kind of middle ground. “I (think) more of a hybrid board, where you’ve got industry experts and academics with provincial representatives and a good representation from elected local officials, can probably work very closely together and share the political risk, if you will,” he said. Whether or not change takes place may depend on who’s in power after May’s

provincial election, however. “I would suspect that the NDP government may be more inclined to look at it, but I’m not politically naïve either,” said Walton. “Despite what promises and inclination might have been made . . . from a provincial perspective, it’s probably easier to sit in Victoria with the current system, when you control all the levers.” He vowed to work with whatever party gets elected, however. “I think, ultimately, it takes a lot of trust and a lot of patience to effect these changes,” said Walton. “That’s why I’m back.”

IN his third term as chairman of the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation, Richard Walton’s top priority will be gridlock, and not just the kind that plagues the morning commute.

eastern communities and the Broadway corridor to UBC — hopelessly so. That’s because TransLink’s efforts to secure adequate funding over the long term have been derailed by what he sees as a broken governance structure, he said. Under the current system, the council of mayors, who represent the 21 municipalities served by the transit authority, essentially play an advisory role, said Walton, while TransLink’s appointed board of directors sets the budget and calls the shots. “Those of us who are elected to steward the public purse don’t have any say at all in the day-to-day operations of TransLink and what the priorities are,” he said. Walton estimated the fare box only pays for about 25 to 40 per cent of any given transit ride, meaning the bulk of the system’s funding has to come from tax. TransLink’s main revenue source — property tax — has been tapped out in his view, so the authority needs to find money elsewhere. Some form of distance pricing, whereby drivers pay a fee that’s proportional to the burden they place on the road network,

is popular with the mayors, but they lack the power to bring the idea to fruition. “The current model . . . allows the province to step back and pass all the very difficult political decisions down to local government,” said Walton. “But it doesn’t give us the funding levers to follow through.” The power structure also creates a critical disconnect between those who do the land planning at the municipal level, and those who shape the transit system, he said. “You’ve got completely different silos for two functions that need to be considered

HE men sit with their legs apart, leaning forward with their forearms resting just above their knees. The women sit perfectly straight, their hands resting on their laps, legs pressed primly together as though the schoolmarm was passing behind them, ruler in hand. On the other side of the gallery, an atomic detonation is recalled with the turn of each page. And in yet another space a cluster of photographic reproductions cling together like shards of a shattered mirror. Beginning Saturday, the Presentation House Gallery is scheduled to house three distinct works by female artists whose fascinations, ranging from the nature of art, the artifice of gender, and the legacy of apocalyptic technology,

border on the obsessive. Standing in her socks amid hundreds of her photographs arranged on the gallery floor, Marianne Wex recalls the first time she picked up a camera. “I was never really into photography. I was into painting,” Wex recalls. Determined to understand body language to aid in her real artwork, Wex lugged her heavy Japanese camera into train stations and down city streets, where she would feign interest in the surrounding architecture to capture the unconscious body language of her real subjects. Approximately 9,000 photographs later, Wex has built a body of work that playfully traces gestures, posture and movement from Greek and Egyptian sculpture through magazine glamour shots and her own street photographs. After developing the first 500 photos in her bathtub, Wex began to note differences in the body language of men and women. The German artist made it a point to mimic everyone she photographed, experimenting with different ways of moving and standing. “I imitated whatever I found . . . I got to know myself,” she says, a cheery smile on her face as she notes the masculine posture of a woman in a centuries-

My parents used to listen to an LP of his bawdy stand-up comedy (the title “Cop Yer Whack For This” decipherable only by Scots) and shoo me out of the room. Connolly’s fame and quick decline (due to drink, drugs) was the subject of Gerry Rafferty’s hit “Baker Street.” But he bounced back, went to photo Alliance Films America to do Head Of The Class on TV, found critical MAGGIE Smith and Pauline Collins are part of an excellent ensemble cast put acclaim opposite Judi Dench together by Dustin Hoffman for Quartet, his directorial debut. in Mrs. Brown, and made some its footing as a tender and touching film about mortality, and about high-falutin’ friends, including the Duke and Duchess of York (he relationships at the end of life. was one of the few invited to Prince Andrew’s bachelor party), and Beecham House seems like an idyllic place to retire: the house actor Dustin Hoffman. is always full of music, vocal concerts, strings rehearsals in the This is all relevant because Hoffman — in his directorial gazebo. And Cedric Livingstone (Michael Gambon) is forever debut — cast his old friend Connolly as one of the leads, and the bossing everyone around, as directors always do. And when the beginning of the film threatens to turn into the Connolly show, residents squabble, the insults tend to be scathing reviews of with the comedian lobbing pickup lines at every skirt he sees, past performances: “I saw you in Carmen. I can’t forget your drinking like a fish, and peeing in the shrubbery. In contrast to performance, but I’ll try.” the other senior residents of Beecham House, a stately manor home for retired musicians, his Wilf is a boor. But after about 20 minutes Hoffman reins his friend in, thankfully, and the film finds See Beecham page 21

Beecham House threatened with closure From page 19

But the house is threatened with closure in six months’ time, unless this year’s gala concert can raise the required funds. Reg (Tom Courtenay), Wilf and Cissy (Pauline Collins) are practising like mad when a newcomer arrives. Diva Jean Horton (Maggie Smith) is “as large as life, and twice as terrifying,” according to Cissy. She’s also Reg’s ex-wife. “I wanted a dignified senility,” poor Reg laments. Jean just wants his forgiveness. The home’s salvation could come from the tremendous publicity of reuniting four talented singers to perform the famous “Bella Figlia dell’amore” quartet from Verdi’s Rigoletto. If only Cissy’s dementia wasn’t getting worse, and Reg and Jean were speaking to one another. The residents aren’t getting any younger, and there is

the occasional poignant reminder that the time to make amends is at a premium. The cast is splendid: Maggie Smith’s character is a diva, a snob — she takes her meals in her room, thank you — but that soon melts away to reveal a regretful, somewhat fearful heart. Pauline Collins brings spunk and pathos to the slightly muddled Cissy; Courtenay is quietly powerful as the legendary tenor cuckolded by the love of his life. And yes, once he’s spent of most of those zippy one-liners, Connolly too finds his rhythm as the film’s comic relief. A nice piece of directing from Hoffman, Quartet is a tonic for some of the high-stakes, adrenaline-laden films currently playing at the multiplex. Watch the credits to see photos and brief bios of the real stars who populate Beecham House.

Youth learn side-by-side with Sinfonia

Lions Gate Youth Orchestra set to perform at Centennial Theatre

■ Lions Gate Sinfonia presents Beethoven and “The Mozarts,” at Centennial Theatre, Saturday, Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m., featuring guest artist Sasha Starcevich, piano, and the Lions Gate Youth Orchestra. Pre-show chat at 6:30 p.m. Tickets: $39/$35/$12, visit centennialtheatre.com. Info: lionsgatesinfonia.com.

Erin McPhee emcphee@nsnews.com

GROWING up in the late 18th century, famed composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart would travel with his father Leopold, an acclaimed composer, violinist and teacher, on European concert tours along with his talented musician sister Nannerl. Road weary, they would seek refuge at boarding houses and at the homes of fellow musicians. “All this cacophony would ensue,” says Clyde Mitchell, conductor and music director of Lions Gate Sinfonia. “Down the hall a violinist would be practising. Over in the other room there would be a singer and a piano working . . . and Mozart would hear all these things.” As a teenager, Wolfgang was already composing his own works and he loved gaining ideas from these tours, the interesting mixture of dissonant sounds and suspensions proving to be an integral part of his musical education. Years later, the story is among those Mitchell passionately shares in the lead-up to the professional chamber orchestra of the North Shore’s upcoming concert, entitled Beethoven and “The Mozarts,” set for Saturday, Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at Centennial Theatre. Since Lions Gate Sinfonia’s launch 12 seasons ago, musical education has been an important focus, both of rising stars as well as community members at large. The upcoming concert exemplifies that interest, as it’s offering a number of mentorship opportunities

MUSIC

Young players performing Mozart work From page 22

for young players, including the newly formed Lions Gate Youth Orchestra which will share the stage with Sinfonia, as well as two pre-concert chats offering insight into the evening’s repertoire. “One of the main reasons I wanted to became a conductor was because I wanted to be able to share music more generally and genially,” says Mitchell. “I wanted to make sure that it was really a part of people’s lives and nobody felt like you had to study in Vienna and have a masters from Juilliard . . . in order to understand music and that starts with kids and I want kids to enjoy music.” Since Sinfonia’s launch, the orchestra has presented what they refer to as annual “side-by-side” concerts, seeing players perform with local youths brought together for the occasion, typically drawn from the pool of member’s private students. This year is no different, however, the crop of young musicians are members of the North Shore-based Lions Gate Youth Orchestra, founded by Sinfonia. Following auditions in the summer, the youth orchestra was

launched in September 2012 and meets weekly on Thursday nights under Mitchell’s baton and with support from Sinfonia players. “They’re all becoming friends, they’re all bonding, there’s a great camaraderie and there’s a fantastic joie de vivre. And we’re working hard, we’re working on major repertoire — Mozart symphonies, Beethoven concertos and Chopin concertos,” says Mitchell. Apart from technique and ensemble etiquette, membership in the group offers general life lessons, including the importance of teamwork, taking direction and constructive criticism in addition to goal setting and the feeling of a job well done following a concert. The youth orchestra has had performance opportunities already, though the Jan. 26 event marks its most significant to date. Both orchestras will take the stage, performing works by three generations of the Mozart family: Wolfgang and Leopold, and Wolfgang’s son Franz Xavier. Among the featured works is Wolfgang’s Symphony No. 14, which he penned at age 14, a fitting piece for Mitchell’s youth orchestra, which is open to youths ages 13 to 18.

“We were rehearsing last night and the kids were saying, ‘wow, he was my age when he wrote this?’” says Mitchell. Apart from the Mozarts, also on the program is a piece by a composer who was considered to be the “the next Mozart,” Frederic Chopin, and his Piano Concerto No. 1, featuring rising star Carol Zhang. Adding to the concert’s mentorship theme, Zhang has studied under the other featured pianist, Sasha Starcevich, who will perform with Sinfonia on Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2. “He’s a brilliant, very fiery and incredibly expressive performer,” says Mitchell. “He’s one of those guys who’s so technically flashy and brilliant, but he combines that with an absolute sweet disposition and incredible accuracy and clarity and he’s what you want as a musician. I put him up there with the best. I’ve worked with a lot of great pianists and Sasha is truly one of the finest artists I know.” Starcevich was previously based on the North Shore, though See Starcevich page 31

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE

NEWS photo Mike Wakefield

MIKE Guinan-Browne shows off the debut collection of fashion jewelry from Canadian designer Simon Chang.

Simon Chang jewelry new for spring Christine Lyon clyon@nsnews.com

Follow us on Twitter @NSNLook.

A North Vancouver company will soon have its jewelry designs featured in stores across Canada thanks to a partnership with a major player in the fashion world. This month, Christina C Fashion Accessories Ltd. on West Third Street launched a new line of jewelry it created for Montreal-based fashion giant Simon Chang. “He’s not one of, but probably the foremost Canadian designer that we have in the country,” said Mike

Guinan-Browne, owner of the local importer and wholesaler of women’s fashion accessories. “For us, of course, it’s a huge feather in our cap to be chosen by him to be able to put a line together for him.” As a licence holder, Christina C is the only company in North America designing jewelry under the Simon Chang label. The spring 2013 line consists of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings, all of which were inspired by Chang’s corresponding collection of women’s apparel. Guinan-Browne and his small team of designers incorporated plenty of vibrant floral motifs and under-the-sea

themes in their accessories. “(The line) combines a lot of natural materials, a lot of higher-end crystals in unique settings and unique styles that are not going to be copied by other lines in the marketplace,” Guinan-Browne said. “Some of the natural materials are cultured pearls and natural shell.” Chang travelled to North Vancouver and put his personal “stamp of approval” on all the pieces, GuinanBrowne added. He said the jewelry will likely appeal to a similar customer base as Chang’s clothing. “The target market would be the young middle-aged upwards,” he said, adding retail prices will range from about $25 to $150. “It’s not a cheap,

low-end line by any means.” Christina C has only just started shipping its pieces to businesses across Canada. No North Shore retailers have been secured yet, but Guinan-Browne hopes local shops that carry Simon Chang apparel will show interest. “I would assume that they will be looking at taking the jewelry as well.” Currently, the Christina C design team is drawing up a dozen collectible charms for a charm bracelet featuring the signature Simon Chang name tag. In the meantime, don’t be surprised to see the Montreal fashion icon in town on business. “He’s now a regular visitor to the North Shore,” Guinan-Browne said.

Bring this ad in and receive 25 Loyalty Points

BANANA Republic will launch a capsule collection by Milly in select stores and online in late May. The 60-piece collection of women’s and men’s apparel and accessories is a collaboration between the Gap Inc. brand and Milly founder and designer Michelle Smith. The collection’s pieces are inspired by the summer sophistication of the Hamptons, New York’s tony seaside resort area, according to a release. Banana Republic’s creative director Simon Kneen says in the release that the designer’s keen sense of colour, print and pattern are the perfect complement to Banana Republic, and her Hamptonschic style is a new take on aspirational summer dressing for the brand’s consumers. The collection features maxi dresses, mini-skirts and shorts in splashes of neon for her as well as bright polos, woven tees and shorts in bold prints

Starcevich presenting master class at Mulgrave From page 23

currently operates a private studio in Bellevue, Wash., in addition to serving as artistic director of Richmond’s Showcase Piano Academy. He has performed in storied music halls around the world, including New York’s Carnegie Recital Hall, Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Hall, Windsor Castle and in London’s Wigmore Hall, and this marks his third performance with Sinfonia. In addition to the program notes and information shared from the stage by Mitchell during the upcoming concert, community members interested in learning more about the evening’s music are invited to a 30-minute pre-concert chat in the Centennial Theatre lobby at 6:30 p.m. Those looking to delve a little deeper are invited to a 90-minute preview lecture Monday, Jan. 21 at the West Vancouver Seniors’ Activity Centre at 1:30 p.m. Cost: $2.25.

“I find that with classical music, like a lot of art forms as opposed to entertainment, the thing that makes it more art is that the more you invest in it, the more you get out of it. There’s always something to enjoy, but there’s more and more layers underneath the more you go. . . . .” says Rob Gloor, Lions Gate Sinfonia’s general manager. “Then when you hear it, you’re just rewarded back for having the interesting insights. That’s what makes it possible to hear and enjoy and be affected by this music over and over again.” Starcevich is also presenting a master class through the North Shore Registered Music Teachers Association to interested students Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 6:30 p.m. at Mulgrave School. Cost: $10. “It’s what we love to do. We love to present music. I think the most important word is share. This is what we do. . . ., ” says Mitchell. “We want to bring people in to share the experience.”

Bomb Book documents the nuclear era

From page 13

old sculpture. Her work received some acclaim, but after a poor packing job led to the water damage that destroyed five pounds worth of her photographs, Wex broke from the art world. “Then I was really forgotten,” she says. That period of forgetfulness ended in 2009 when her work caught the attention of a London gallery curator. Over the last four years, Wex’s work has been resurrected. “I thought, ‘call it what you want to. I find it interesting,’” Wex says. “It’s still relevant, and it’s an interesting use of the camera and how she organized it into an archive,” says Helga Pakasaar, curator at Presentation House Gallery. “This project is a very interesting documentary study, it’s almost like sociology — she’s really working through the evidence she found and structuring it in very interesting ways to make this point about patriarchal society.”

The gallery is also featuring Andrea Pinheiro, the researcher behind Bomb Book, a minimalist record of every nuclear bomb detonation since 1945. Pinheiro, a teacher at Algoma University in Ontario, is known for her photography, but this book contains no images, merely names. “She spent many many years researching this area,” Pakasaar says, discussing Pinheiro’s 2,450 page book. “She’s really part of a generation of artists who are . . . contributing to knowledge that otherwise wouldn’t exist.” The name of one bomb is written on each page, and if the name is not known, the page is left blank. “Even though she often works with photography, it’s significant that she chose not to produce any images,” Pakasaar says. Photographs of atomic detonations are generally stirring, a giant fireball underneath a halo of smoke, the explosion painting everything in its radius a shade of deep crimson. “Certainly what I’ve seen of atomic photography is quite

sublime,” Pakasaar says. “I think she decided that she wanted to record or make known what had occurred without falling subject to the difficulties of the beauty of making images of that.” The gallery is also exhibiting the work of Anna Oppermann, a painter and photographer known for installations that resemble an obsessive chaos on first inspection. “I think I felt a bit overwhelmed,” Pakasaar says, recalling her first encounter with Oppermann’s work. “In many ways she was anticipating this interactive mode where you’re forced into thinking ‘Did I just see that or was that in another permutation?’ She very intentionally sets up an initial impression that is slightly . . . destabilizing.” Once immersed in Oppermann’s nest of photographs, paper scraps, notes, and drawings, the result can be enriching, according to Pakasaar. “She puts you into a state of wanting to discover something,” the curator says. While each exhibit is distinct within the gallery, there is a bond between the artists, according to Pakasaar. “They share an investigative approach,” Pakasaar says. “There’s kind of a sense of abundance and excess in what they make.”

GREEN, Simone Marie May 5, 1916 - January 9, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Simone Marie Green at the age of 96, comforted and surrounded in her final days by members of her family and friends at Evergreen House in North Vancouver. Simone was predeceased by her beloved husband Daniel Ross Green in 1998, her parents Armand and Alphonsine Savard and siblings Ronnie, Clare, Lucille, Gerry, Andy, Clem and Neil. The eldest in a family of 14 children, Simone was raised in the French Canadian community of Debden, Saskatchewan. Upon completing high school, she pursued her dream, moving to Prince Albert to study nursing at the Holy Family Hospital. There, she met Danny Green, the love of her life, who she married in 1941. Their February honeymoon was a joyful albeit frosty train trip to Saskatoon where they spent their first romantic night at the venerable Bessborough Hotel before continuing to the Royal Canadian Air Force base in Winnipeg. A year later, they were posted to Weyburn, Saskatchewan and then to the RCAF #5 Bombing and Gunnery School near Dafoe. Here they lived off-base in a lively enclave of converted granaries called Boomtown, established by enterprising farmers from the local community to house the growing number of enlisted men and their new wives. Mom often spoke of the fond memories and enduring friendships made during that time. Over the next several years they moved to postings in Trenton, Hagersville and Yorkton where Dan continued to serve in the military police and Simone practised her profession until the end of the war. After giving birth to two sons, Daniel John (1944) and Gerald Ross (1949), Simone went back to work and discovered a talent for nursing education. She taught Nursing Arts at the Holy Family Hospital in Prince Albert and at the Grey Nun’s Hospital in Regina, where she also became the Nursing Registrar. She earned a reputation as a clear communicator and empathetic counselor who was loved and respected by students and faculty alike. In their retirement years, Simone and Dan enjoyed being close to their family In Vancouver. They loved to travel, crossing Canada and the US several times in their motorhome, spending warm winters in Arizona. Simone was an active parishioner and volunteer with St Stephens Church in North Vancouver and was an avid bridge player and curler well into her later years. Mom was the greatest wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend anyone could wish for. She was a generous, kind and gracious lady. Mom will be remembered with abiding love by friends and family, especially by her two sons and their wives, Dan and Maureen, Gerry and Jo-Ann, her four grandchildren, Darin, Shannon (Asaf) Danielle (Jon) and Thea, her two greatgranddaughters, Nova and Rio, her brother, Marcel, and sisters Fern, Marie, Murielle and Paulette, her dear friends, Madeleine, Dorothy and Jim, and Gladys, and her and Dan’s extended families. We thank all the staff at Evergreen House for their kind and professional care over many years and particularly after Simone suffered several medical setbacks. Most of all we extend our affection and gratitude to her friend and caregiver, Marie, for her loyal and loving companionship. A celebration of Mom’s life will be held for close friends and family in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation.

KERNAGHAN – Agnes Therese June 6, 1921 – January 8, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Agnes Kernaghan, on January 8, 2013, at the age of 91 years, surrounded by her loving children. Beloved wife of the late Stanley John Kernaghan, loving mother of her five children: Josie, Karen (Jason, deceased), Patti (Pierre), Darcy (Heidi), Jennifer (Foad), and grandmother to eight grandchildren: Alexis, Nikolai, Neisha, Joseph, Veronika, Katrina, Joshua and Dominic. Predeceased by her parents Anna and John Borody, and her brother Walter Borody. Agnes was born June 6, 1921 in Portage La Prairie, MB, and raised in Winnipeg. She worked with her father in his restaurant, the Denver Café, until July 1947, when she married the love of her life, Stanley. Agnes and Stan raised five children in Woodhaven, Winnipeg, where everyone knew our Mom. She was a Community Club leader, a volunteer work coordinator and canvasser, charity fundraiser and sewed costumes for many children’s performances. An original member of the Sweet Adeline’s, Mom was an accomplished soprano who chose to raise her family instead of pursuing a singing career. Mom loved to play piano and continued to cherish music throughout her life. In 1970 the Kernaghans moved to West Vancouver and resided on Highland Drive until 2001. Mom continued to be an active member of the United Church of Canada, from Sturgeon Creek United in Winnipeg to St. David’s United Church in West Van. Mom was a member of the Senior Choir, she was the Junior Choir Leader, and organized countless children’s performances in the Church. Agnes will be remembered for her fabulous smile, her sense of humour and her happy disposition. It has been said that our Mom was everyone’s favourite Aunt and it is not surprising that her grandchildren loved to be in her company because of her strength and enthusiasm for life. Our Mother was unwavering in her love, patience and support for her children and family. Until the end of her life, our Mother showed a resilience and strength of character that will be forever admired and cherished by all of us. Agnes’ children would like to acknowledge and thank the ICU staff at Lions Gate Hospital for their valiant efforts in fighting for our Mother. Our family will always remember the excellent care given our Mother by Dr. John Corey. A Funeral service will be held at 11am Friday January 18, 2013 at St. David’s United Church, 1525 Taylor Way, West Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made In Memory of Agnes Kernaghan to the Intensive Care Unit at the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation.

BENTLEY, Michelina (nee Lauriente)

Born June 24, 1925 in Agnone, Molise, Italy. Michelina died peacefully surrounded by family on January 9, 2013. She was predeceased by her husband Fraser and survived by beloved daughters Marie (Bill), Ann (Gennaro), Donna (Paul), and Sonia (Bruce), beloved grandchildren Michael (Svetlana), David (Tili), Jennifer (Jeff), and Matisse and beloved great grandchildren Stefan, Jason, Brendan, Hailey, and Daria. Michelina is also survived by sister Elena in Italy, brother Salvatore in Germany, and sister Livia in Argentina. Michelina grew up in Agnone, Molise, Italy. “Everything we had we made ourselves. We were happy.” After World War II Michelina travelled by ship to Venezuela with the Italian Consulate in the early 1950’s. From there she travelled with the Consulate to Oregon in 1955 where she was introduced to Fraser by the Farmiloe family. Michelina and Fraser married in Idaho in 1955 and settled in North Vancouver where Fraser built our family home. After they were married Fraser and Michelina brought Michelina’s daughter, Maria, who was born in Italy, to Canada. Michelina was an energetic, strong, and wise woman who brought many gifts and talents to her family. She loved sewing, canning, cooking, baking, and gardening to name just a few. She loved to walk. She walked the West Vancouver seawall for many years where she met and made many friends. Michelina worked for many years at Lions Gate Hospital where she loved her job in housekeeping and made many friends. Her genuine kindness and generous spirit at work and in the neighbourhood at home attracted many lifelong friends. Fraser once said “She is friends with some of the best women in this town.” Special thank you to Michelina’s sisters and brothers and their families in Italy, Germany and Argentina. Special thank you to Dr. Anise Lakha in North Vancouver for all your kindness toward and wonderful care of “Mum” over the years and Dr. G. Sreenivasan at VGH. Celebration of Life to be held at First Memorial Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Vancouver, B.C. on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 10:00 A.M. Flowers gratefully declined, friends so wishing may make a memorial contribution to Childfund International Canada.

DENNIES Helen (Peggy), Steele (formerly Carlsen, nee McCurrach) June 13, 1921 - Dec. 20, 2012 Helen, a long time resident of North Vancouver, passed away peacefully on December 20, 2012 at age 91. Predeceased by her husband Harold (Hal), sister Gladys McPherson and brother Jim McCurrach. Helen, ‘Peggy’, will be missed by her daughter Barbara Fousek, grandson Karl, stepchildren Marlene MacDonald and Bill Dennies, grandchildren Carmen and Patrick, close friend and cousin Isabel Harper, nieces, a nephew and friends old and new. Helen was an independent, strong woman who was thoughtful and caring. In retirement she enjoyed, with Hal, fishing and driving their Winnebago to lakes in B.C.’s Interior, especially to Sheridan Lake. She was an avid knitter and always had a project on her needles. In later years she practiced Tai Chi and enjoyed playing card games with her friends at Balmoral House. I would like to thank the staff on the 2nd floor, Manor House, Lynn Valley Care Centre for the excellent care they gave my mom and for providing an environment where she felt supported and happy. To celebrate Helen’s life, a memorial tea for family and friends will be held on Sunday, February 3, 2013, 3-5pm in the lower room at Mollie Nye House, 940 Lynn Valley Road.

Corvette unveiling a hit in Motown Bredan McAleer Contributing Writer

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

eyes on their new 3. Dubbed chassis-code F30, it’s a stone’s throw from the out-going model, sharing much of that same conservative, mildly creased bodywork — every panel is different, but not wildly so. Speaking of numbers, BMW aficionados are awfully fond of them. For instance, I could walk up to any member of the local BMW club and tell them that I grew up driving an 85 E28 535i, and they’d instantly have a picture in their head of exactly what I was talking about. My 328i tester, on the other hand, has nomenclature designed to infuriate the purist. Once upon a time, the badge

Detroit. The Motor City. For a while this town was the heart of industrial America, producing both the wheeled iron that moved folks in their physical beings and the Motown sound that moved their souls. Then the bottom fell out. These days, Detroit’s on the rebound, and at this year’s North American International Auto Show both the domestic and import manufacturers were launching some of their most important new models. In this week’s Braking News, the shiniest stuff to come out of NAIAS: The new Corvette Stingray No better way to lead off the list than this, the seventh generation Corvette, once again to be called the Stingray. Chevy’s had just six generations of ‘Vette over the past six decades, so a new one is about as big a deal as you get from the General. Certainly, GM’s been treating the reveal like it was about to announce the Caramilk Secret. Annoyingly, details kept slipping out — a leaked schematic here, a 3D wire model of a front bumper there, a quick snap of an advance copy of Automobile magazine with the smokeshrouded car on the cover. Mostly though, GM kept the wraps on the new ‘Vette right up until the unveiling, which was streamed live via

THE new 3 Series still lives up to BMW’s Ultimate Driving Machine slogan while also following the industry’s lower emissions and better efficiency trend. It is available at Park Shore BMW in the Northshore Auto Mall.

2013 BMW 328i xDrive

3 Series still out in front

THE Ultimate Driving Machine.

Try as they might, I don’t see how the automotive world is going to top that slogan for snappy punch. Porsche’s old “There Is No Substitute” is not bad as it makes everyone else sound like they’re selling margarine, but BMW’s got the upper hand — at least in the marketing game. It’s the culmination of a brand message that stretches all the way back to that first 2002tii that the late, great, David E. Davis got so effusive about. The blue-and-white roundel would only adorn the sportiest of machines from Germany: they might be comfortable, luxurious and well-equipped, but they were

primarily tools for driving. As a nail on which to hang BMW’s reputation, you could hardly go wrong with the 3 Series. It is the industry benchmark for sporting sedans, and has been for at least three decades.

But here’s the thing: BMW’s slogan is no longer just “The Ultimate Driving Machine” — they’ve been slipping the term “Efficient Dynamics” into the advertising these days. It’s a newer, softer, greener BMW — expanding the definition of performance to include frugality at the pump and cleaner emissions. Sounds great — but surely deviating from a previous focus on driving dynamics above all else must result in a blurring of the edges? Put it another way: is the new 3 Series still the benchmark that makes the competition green with envy? Design Certainly, you wouldn’t think BMW had taken too many risks with their winning formula when first you clap

Ford scores in Detroit with new truck concept From page 41

YouTube. Expectations couldn’t have been higher. Mostly, they’ve been met. The new ‘Vette (designation “C7” among gearheads), is not quite a thing of beauty, but it is aggressive and menacing, and might just get mistaken for a modern Ferrari. No doubt the new 450 h.p. base model will go like a modern Ferrari as well — performance improvements are said to meet or exceed the current Grand Sport packages. Biggest improvement? The much-sneered-at interior is much better, and should address the Corvette’s cut-rate image, perhaps even winning new buyers. You’re sure to see the C7 put up against all kinds of super-fast, super-expensive machinery over the next year of its life: look forward to seeing America’s sportscar taking more than a few scalps. The Ford Atlas concept The most important car in Canada is actually a truck: the F150. As the best-selling piece of wheeled machinery in this country, the True North strong and free has a deep love for Ford pickups. The same is true in the U.S., so immediately after the much-hyped launch of the C7 Corvette, Ford launched their own salvo in the form of a concept dubbed Atlas. As a return volley: point, set, match. To be clear, this truck isn’t the new F150 — it’s just a preview. Even so, it’s a fairly thin disguise for what the new rig is going to look like — even more square-jawed than the current truck, with LED lighting up front and a new, broad and bluff front end that looks ready to bash its way into yet further sales records (don’t be fooled, it’s also more aerodynamic). Under the skin, more high-strength steel, and a host of new Ecoboost engines to provide grunt and greater efficiency. Expect the eventual debut

of the new F150 to look pretty much like this. The Infiniti Q50 Infiniti took a lot of flak for their recent decision to abandon their current naming structure and return to the letter Q. Under the new program, you’ll be able to get a Q50, Q60 or Q70 sedan, or pick an SUV from QX50 to QX80. Confusing? Well, a little, but with German manufacturers abandoning the old numbersequals-engine-displacement rules, Infiniti has little to lose by streamlining things for the average buyer. What’s more, casting folks’ minds back to the old Q45 and QX4 is no bad thing: both were excellent vehicles and paragons of the brand. Kicking things off, the new Q50 is a sharplooking machine, with more than a passing side-profile resemblance to the BMW 3 Series (always a target in the market segment). Inside, there’s a new twin touchscreen interface and a new centre-stack. Under the hood, Nissan/Infiniti’s workhorse V-6 again takes centre-stage, and there will be a hybrid version to match. Anyone who’s driven an M-series hybrid knows that Infiniti is very good at making hybrid cars very fast and fun-to-drive — in a smaller, nimbler chassis, this powertrain should be a blast. The Nissan Note It’s hardly in the same league as some of the heavy machinery we’ve been discussing, but the new (Versa hatchback) Nissan Note is no less important. Having positioned its subcompact sedan as a very basic value purchase, Nissan had to do something a little different for the morestylish hatchback model. On first blush, the new Nissan is a success, with a small-yet-peppy 1.6-litre engine and conservative, clean-cut styling. Aerodynamic too, and similarly well put-together inside. Being a Nissan, you can expect some fairly

CHEVROLET unveils the super fast and slightly menacing seventh generation Corvette at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It’s not. Having had the opportunity to drive the Skyactiv-D in prototype form, it’s not like a normal diesel engine; yes, there’s prodigious torque, but it also loves to rev. With fewer pit stops owing to excellent economy, Mazda’s racer should do well in competition. It’ll also be an excellent shakedown for the street-car version, which is coming soon.

serious technology on the inside as available extras. Taking a gander at what’s on offer from the redesigned Sentra (intelligent key, smart tire-pressure filling, inexpensive and clever navigation), the Note’s bound to be a strong player in the small car segment. Watch for it. Mazda Skyactiv-D Racecar Racecars are brittle things, no? Spidery little rockets that require high-test fuel and lots of it. Well, here’s Mazda with a diesel. Based on their all-new Mazda6, this Grand-Am bound racer is packing four-cylinder turbodiesel power. Does that seem like a weird choice over a powerful, revvy gasoline engine?

BMW 3 Series handsome in an understated way From page 41

on the back of a Bimmer indicated engine size, and made things easier for their would-be buyers. These days, the 328i has a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine (which must surely be worth more than 0.8 litres of extra displacement), and it says “xDrive” on the flanks as opposed to just “x” on the back, to let everyone know it’s got proprietary four-wheel drive. Out front, the iconic BMW twin-kidney grille now connects directly with the headlights,

giving the impression that the car has tear ducts. Taken overall, it’s a handsome machine that’s as shouty as a charcoal business suit (i.e. not at all). Environment Inside, fans of early Bimmer 3s will think they’re looking into a 5 Series — and they’d be nearly right. The new 3 is just as spacious as a 5 from the early part of last decade, particularly in the back seat where rear knee room is exemplary. Up front, things are a little more of a mixed bag. While my tester was a “Luxury” line (Sport or Modern are the

alternatives) and came fully loaded, it did have the vaguest aftermarket feel to the way the navigation screen sat in the instrument panel. Not that there was anything

of an afterthought about the iDrive system itself. Critics absolutely hated the old system when it debuted, but that was nearly a decade ago. Like most modern BMWs, the 3

Series control interface is very intuitive, and simple to use. The rest of the cabin is typically BMW, an incremental improvement over the old 3 Series, but not something to

shock or amaze. Build quality is very high, as you would expect. The seats err on the side of

slight firmness. Down on the centre next to the shifter is a toggle switch to flick the car between comfort, normal and sport modes — just in case you aren’t sure what the difference is through the seat of your pants, a handy screen will pop up to let you know what your button-pressing has accomplished. Performance First, to placate the BMW purists who will no doubt be scoffing at the idea of a four-cylinder BMW. Yes, this engine is nowhere near as sweet or smooth as the old straightsix. An inline-6 is a perfectly

balanced engine, and no one does them better than the Bavarians. On startup, the 2.0-litre four-pot turbo is a bit clattery, as with most direct-injected engines. You won’t notice anything inside the cabin, but do expect some funny looks. Put the car in motion, however, and things change quite a bit. While there is the teensiest bit of hesitation from the turbo-lag, this new motor is much stronger down low than the old inline six. BMW claims 241 horsepower. I claim that BMW is sandbagging like an old pro. My tester was white-ontan with extra-cushy interior

Bring the 3 to a stop and a bit of an Achilles heel is exposed: the start-stop system. Yes, this does indeed save fuel, but it’s really quite rough in engagement. Nothing so bad as an Altima Hybrid, but certainly a few steps back of the system that Porsche now offers in its sports cars. As the weather was fairly poor, I had ample opportunity to try out the all-wheel drive. BMW’s xDrive system differs in feel to competitors in its apparent rear-wheel-drive bias. It’s certainly a pleasure to carve

options and wood trim: a machine spec’d for the silver-haired. Regardless of appearance, tickle the throttle when in sport mode and it’d scoot like a scalded cat. Naturally, not everything was as sporting as it could be — the steering is not quite as knife-sharp as one would expect from a BMW — and those looking for a little added precision would do well to consider the Sport line. However, mid-range acceleration of this new fourcylinder engine and eight-speed transmission is excellent, and certainly BMW-like in rapidity.

VENZA BASE MODEL SHOWN

through a corner (though the Luxury Line is a bit too wallowy to make things really pleasant), and if you’re a bit too hasty goosing the throttle, you will overwhelm the systems. Other improvements include a much better ride — some of the added comfort feels like it comes at the cost of body roll. BMW enthusiasts will again want to see if they can stretch to the Sport package. Features At just $43,600 to start for a rear-wheel-drive model, the 3 Series is very competitively priced. There’s also a Classic Line which comes with xDrive for just $39,900 — not too many options available on this one. Like any other German manufacturer, start optioning out the car you actually want and the price climbs rapidly. However, the addition of a single package including navigation, parking assist and keyless go (for $3,500) kept my tester just a hair less than the $50,000 mark. Notable available features include BMW Apps, which allows you to update your car down the road, just as you would update your smartphone, and a sensor under the rear bumper that can open the trunk if you wave your foot under it when your hands are full — clever stuff. Observed fuel economy is markedly improved over the old inline engine; official ratings are at 8.6 litres/100 kilometres

in the city and 5.2 l/100 km on the highway. City figures can be improved upon when the start-stop system is active. Stop sign Noisy engine; body roll; options can add up quickly. Green light Strong acceleration; excellent fuel-economy; improved interior space; available all-wheel-drive grip. The checkered flag Even as BMW moves into an area of broader appeal and more efficient offerings, the 3 Series remains the industry benchmark. Competitors Cadillac ATS ($35,195) At the press launch for Cadillac’s new small sedan, the BMW 3 Series might have been mentioned once or twice. Or several thousand times. Caddy drew down a bead on the 3 and took their best shot. Surprisingly enough, it’s a pretty good shot — in fact, the hat tip has to go to the ATS for the better on-road handling dynamics. Of course, this is Caddy’s first shot, and there are some weak points, most notably the shoddy instrument panel and the wonky CUE control interface. Even so, the fact that a Cadillac can run toe-to-toe with Bimmer’s best in the twisties says a great deal about GM’s ground-up effort. Audi A4 ($37,800) If your commute has heavy snow, buy an Audi. If it’s got a curvy road, buy a BMW — or at least, that’s what common sense used to say. These days, Audi’s moved pretty far from its front-drive roots, and the A4 is just as capable of a backroad boogie as the Bimmer. While the BMW has the engine edge on paper, the Audi’s 2.0-litre turbo engine has lovely grunt; it’s a closer race than you’d think.

One less bottom line to worry about.

Beyond the sticker price, a cargo van requires additional expenses you might not always account for. In addition to the longest maintenance interval and highest retained value in its class1, Sprinter has the lowest fuel cost per kilometre, saving you money every time you drive. All of this has earned Sprinter the very first ‘Best Fleet Value in Canada’ award2, and the lowest total cost of ownership for the third year in a row3 as rated by VINCENTRIC,™ the authority on identifying, analyzing, and comparing automotive ownership costs.
