Budget may benefit North Shore projects Infrastructure fund could apply to sewage plant, Harry Jerome rebuilds Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

MONEY for job and skills retraining, and a commitment to share the costs of municipal infrastructure projects marked the highlights of the federal government’s 2013 budget on Thursday. Among the measures announced by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is the promise of a $32 billion 10-year “Building Canada” program to support spending on roads, recreation facilities and public transit, starting in 2014, as well as a further $14 billion for major projects. On the North Shore, projects like the stalled $70-million revamp of North Vancouver’s Harry Jerome Recreation Centre and a planned $400 million upgrade of the Lions Gate sewage treatment plant to secondary treatment could both potentially benefit from the infrastructure plan. North Vancouver MP Andrew Saxton described the announcement as “great news for municipalities.” City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto said he’s happy to hear the federal government has “a significant pot of money” still available for local and regional infrastructure projects, but added “the devil is in the details.” The Lions Gate sewage treatment plant upgrade remains a pressing issue for taxpayers, he said, with details on how much senior governments are willing to fork See TransLink page 5

Port backtracks on power lines; will examine options

Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

MOODYVILLE residents have been given a temporary reprieve from the prospect of high-voltage power lines running through their neighbourhood as Port Metro Vancouver has agreed to examine two other options. The community has been up in arms since BC Hydro informed them in early March that the 69-kilovolt transmission lines to service the Richardson grain terminal would be installed in the coming weeks. The changes are part of the controversial Low Level Road expansion project, which the city agreed to last year. However, the plan the City of North Vancouver signed off on didn’t make any mention of new 69-kilovolt transmission lines See Port page 3

WV council OKs housing action plan

Community consultation on plan’s ideas earmarked for fall Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

WITH tall houses squashing views and high rents squeezing tenants, the District of West Vancouver voted in favour of a plan to shape the future of housing in the municipality at a council meeting Monday. The housing action plan, which places an emphasis on coach houses, housing diversity and purpose-built rental apartments, may be too restrictive, according to Coun. Bill Soprovich. “Once this is adopted, this carries the case. Where’s the flexibility for future thought?” Soprovich asked. The current plan incorporates enough flexibility, according to Mayor Michael Smith. “Coun. Soprovich, I’m just reading the plan and the five action words are: one is ‘continue,’ two is ‘consider,’ three is ‘identify,’ four is ‘strengthen,’ and five is ‘monitor.’ That really

would indicate that staff is continuing the process. They’re going to come back to council with more definitive recommendations.” Soprovich found an ally in Coun. Michael Lewis, who asked to amend the motion, removing the word “adopted” and replacing it with “provide framework.” “There’s no need to have this sophistry around the language,” responded Coun. Craig Cameron. “It’s not a framework. We’re not setting up a framework for a framework. We are committing to set this policy direction.” While debating a single word may seem innocuous, Cameron stressed the need to avoid the fate of death by study. “You can take it for a reference and have it be an interesting document that sits on the shelf, or you can adopt it as the policy of West Vancouver, and I support the latter,” he said. Lewis’s amendment was defeated 5-2. The housing action plan is set to serve as a prelude to fall community consultation before turning up in front of council again in the form of bylaw revisions in January 2014. In a previous debate, Coun. Mary-Ann Booth noted 30 years of relative inaction in the face of increasingly bulky homes springing up across the district. The action plan also found support from Coun. Trish Panz, who has said the market for coach houses is comprised of district residents looking for more options.

The housing action plan stresses the need for a variety of housing in order to secure diversity within the community. Excluding housing for seniors, one 16-unit building has been the only purpose-built rental apartment built in the district since 1979. Approximately 1,950 West Vancouver households have difficulty coming up with the money to keep a roof over their heads, according to a 2006 Metro Vancouver study. About 975 West Vancouverites are at risk of homelessness, according to the same study. In addition to providing affordable options for seniors, the plan also examines reducing housing bulk and preserving vegetation. Greater clarity on floor area ratio is also needed, according to the plan. Both Smith and Lewis have blasted practices that allow homeowners to skirt district regulations regarding the floor area ratio, which measures the floor space of a building against the size of its lot. Decks and basements are exempt from FAR measurements. For Soprovich, the danger of ushering in new housing comes in failing to recognize established neighbourhood character. The housing action plan emphasizes the importance of neighbourhood character while acknowledging the difficulty in articulating that character.

Port surveyed lines in Nov.

Plymouth school repurposed Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

From page 1 coming down St. Davids Avenue. After an “emotional but respectful” meeting between PMV, the city, BC Hydro and roughly 70 neighbours Tuesday night, the port has agreed to research and report back on two potential alternatives — burying the existing distribution lines along the St. Davids corridor and installing the transmission lines on higher overhead poles, and servicing Richardson via the west, which would require the company to move its connecting substation. “I think the meeting was worthwhile and well attended,” said Justin Pedley, PMV’s director of trade areas and infrastructure delivery. “The two options are going to be explored from a technical engineering point of view and we’re going to do that as quickly as possible. The project team’s intent is to report back to the port executive next Wednesday with the review of their findings and shortly after that, report back to the community and the city.” Residents were incensed they were never consulted or even told that the port’s original intention to run the transmission lines along Low Level Road had been scrapped. “(We started) getting into measuring inches and metres and we realized, to maintain a landscape buffer and not impact view corridors, we could not put the power lines where we were originally intending to. That’s how we came up with the St. Davids corridor,” Pedley said. “It wasn’t until very recently that we realized there’s just no way we can do it.” However, survey crews began measurements for the 69kilovolt lines on St. Davids in November last year, according to an email sent to First Street resident Amanda Nichol from PMV project manager Richard Lyell. The response to the potential changes from Moodyville residents ranges from cautious optimism to bleak skepticism, according to neighbour Stephani Samaridis. “Personally, I’m somewhat optimistic. I know there are a lot of people that are not, based on the process they’ve been undergoing with the Low Level Road. They don’t believe anything they’re being told,” she said. But if the port comes back next week without a workable solution, PMV can expect an escalation of the protest from residents, Samaridis added. “I’m hopeful they will do what they say and force Richardson to accept alternatives since the power that’s going down our street is directly to supply them. I think what will likely happen if that does not work, there will be bodies lying in the street as they try to dig up the lines,” she said. Pedley could not say whether PMV has the power to compel its tenants to move their infrastructure. The hydro line fiasco is just the latest in a string of incidents in which the port has angered its neighbours and city council by failing to communicate its plans or changes until they are already set in motion. But sullying the relationship between PMV and the city is not the port’s intention, Pedley said. “The port has been in North Vancouver for 100-plus years and it intends to be there for a while, so the port takes being a good neighbour to heart and we intend to try and keep maintaining our relationship with the city,” he said. The city is also getting a completed Spirit Trail, slope stability improvements and improved bike paths out of the deal, he added.

WV employees help catch suspect A break and enter suspect is behind bars following tips from the West Vancouver District Watch Program, according to a release from West Van police.

Shortly after the theft of two television sets was reported in connection with a break-in on the 8000-block of Pasco Road Tuesday afternoon, district employees spotted a 36-year-old man on Marine Drive carrying a TV set in a bag, according to police. The suspect was later seen stashing the television into nearby bushes. Officers arriving

on the scene were told the suspect was at the intersection of Marine Drive and Horseshoe Bay Drive. The man was arrested without incident, according to police. The WVPD is recommending charges of break and enter, possession of break-in instruments, possession of property obtained by crime, and breach of probation against the man, who has no fixed address. The West Vancouver District Watch is comprised of municipal employees who have been trained by police to stay alert for suspicious situations. — Jeremy Shepherd

The North Vancouver school board is in the process of negotiating a long-term lease with the Tsleil-Waututh Nation to convert the Tollcross Road property to a skills training centre. Once renovated, the school will serve as classroom space for the Tsleil-Waututh and their educational partners for several skills training programs “We’re currently offering adult basic education and we’re busting at the seams in our current locations, so we have a huge demand for classroom space,” said Angela George, the band’s director of community development. “We have several other partnership initiatives in the training and employment fields and our intention is to continue to foster those partnerships to better meet the needs of the local labour market.” Some of the possible curricula for the old school are chef and trades training, green energy sector training, as well as health and science career education. Classes at the school will be open to all. “We have a small membership and probably 10 to 20 per cent of our class rosters are Tsleil-Waututh Nation. The demand is for the whole larger community and I think that’s going to continue to grow,” George said. The band will still have to go through a rezoning and building permit process with the District of North See Classes page 4

We are the local community as well and our interest is in maintaining the community feel of that area.”

Quick call foils robbery attempt

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

AN alleged liquor store robber had just seven minutes to enjoy the fruits of his crime before being arrested at a bus stop Wednesday, according to a release from the West Vancouver Police Department. The 34-year old man had robbed the Oceanside Liquor Store at 100 Park Royal South before, according to manager Aaron Bourcier, who said he was looking at the man’s photo during the robbery. “I had (his picture) a foot from my face up against the window when he came in. I was able to look at it and look at him and go, ‘Oh yeah, that’s him,’” Bourcier said. Veiled by a bandana and wearing latex gloves, the alleged thief demanded the money in the register, according to Bourcier. “He started to unzip and showed me a metal handle in his bag,

and I know that last time after he left he robbed a cabdriver with a knife. I had a customer in the store standing right beside him when he walked in, so I wasn’t going to muck about.” The alleged robber nabbed about $300, but Bourcier said it wasn’t a perfect crime. “The guy was clearly either cracked out or just a total moron, ’cause he walked up outside, and then stands outside and puts his bandana on in view of my camera.” West Van police and Bourcier credited an alert citizen for the quick takedown of the suspect. “I think a guy saw him (putting on the bandana) outside and was calling the cops already as the guy came in, and when the guy ran out he ran after him and kept him in eyesight the whole time. Stayed on the line with the cops and told them which way he was going,” Bourcier said. Police attended the scene and made the arrest without incident. The stolen cash was recovered. No weapon was found.

TransLink hopes for federal funds From page 1 over yet to be worked out. In order to complete the project by the deadline of 2020, “We’re going to need commitments in the next couple of years,” he said, adding he’s “cautiously optimistic” about the budget announcements. Saxton hinted the Harry Jerome upgrade could be another project considered for federal money. “In North Vancouver we still have some recreational facilities that could be upgraded and that are looking pretty old and dated. They could certainly use some of these funds,” he said. TransLink officials also praised the announcement of the renewed infrastructure program, which had been scheduled to expire in the next fiscal year, noting federal money has been key to many of the transportation network’s bigticket investments. Another key theme of the budget was the need to match future skills training with areas of future employment and current labour shortages. Currently there is a “mismatch” in training and available jobs, said Saxton. “We have a lot of

jobs that go unfilled while we still have a lot of Canadians who are still looking for work.” Among the measures announced Thursday are a new Canada Job Grant, which would provide up to $15,000 towards skills training with $5,000 from the federal government being matched by the provinces and employers. The government also promised to promote education in fields where there is higher demand from employers, including science, technology, engineering and skilled trades. It also promised $70 million over three years to support 5,000 paid internships for recent post-secondary graduates. The budget also contained a reference to the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy, vowing to “better ensure” that defence purchases create “economic opportunities for Canadians” by developing “key domestic industrial capabilities.” West Vancouver MP John Weston said he was pleased to see measures supporting small businesses in the budget including the extension of the hiring credit. The budget projects a deficit of $18.7 million in 2013.

Sinking feeling T

he federal government’s decision to close a freshwater research facility in Norther Ontario known as the Experimental Lakes Area is one more example of the Tory administration’s distaste for science. The project in question has spent 45 years researching the effects of pollution on fresh water — you know, the stuff we drink for, well, life. The closed system of the ELA allowed scientists to accurately assess the long-term effects of changing just one element in the surrounding ecosystem such as a fertilizer or pesticide chemical. Moving the research elsewhere into uncontrolled water means research will no longer be conclusive. Don’t expect to hear complaints from the scientists themselves. The Tories have increasingly cut off all governmentemployed researchers from speaking freely with the media, last year going

so far as to have government handlers trail Canadian scientists attending international conferences. A clear signpost was the 2011 decision to end the mandatory long-form census, a move that caused the head of Statistics Canada to resign, saying the move would compromise its accuracy. And last year, the Tories infamously snuck science-slashing legislation into the back pages of its budget. Other countries have noticed, even if many Canadians remain unconvinced. U.S. scientists working co-operatively with Canadian scientists on Arctic research last year were aghast when asked not to release data without Canadian government permission. Against this backdrop, it’s difficult to take seriously this week’s promise to research how diluted bitumen behaves in salt water.

Ambleside’s assets worth a council visit

Dear Editor: It was with great dismay and disappointment that I read the March 13 story in the North Shore News, Council Embraces Ideas for Revitalizing Ambleside. Sophia Burke, in particular, expressed “There’s nothing in Ambleside that is any draw. There are no fun restaurants and there’s nothing there to draw anyone. There’s horrible small little stores there that I don’t even know how they exist right now.” The area should be outfitted with bike and pedestrian access leading to worthy shops and restaurants, according to Burke. According to the story, her input was echoed by more than 10 other speakers Monday night and council agreed with them. I am stunned to have my business classed

as a “horrible little store.” The Avant Gardener at 1460 Marine Drive has customers from across Canada and the United States who make a point of visiting the store when they are in town. Not to mention the scores of faithful customers from North and West Vancouver who constantly voice their appreciation for what we do, and support us by shopping in my store. They notice the care and attention given to creating an inviting environment, in great part due to the creative genius of Georgina Horrobin who has been employed to do our display for 26-years. My customers enjoy the store as a community gathering place, and constantly remark how wonderful it is to have a local business owner as opposed to a large chain store, and to enjoy a free-standing store in a heritage building,

as opposed to a mall. How many stores have a trellised back patio with an 80-year-old hops plant climbing up the back wall of the building? I would also like to point out that I have a caring and kind local landlord, who is a partowner of my building as well as owning the three other “horrible little stores” next door: Flowers by Nan, Yamazaki and Amadeo Bakehouse, long-time businesses with owner/operators. The landlord is not interested in “developing” the land, but enjoys the “village” atmosphere of her properties. She monitors the condition of her buildings and attends to upkeep before being asked. As to “no fun restaurants” we have two of West Van’s most popular restaurants on our block: Carmelo’s and Thai Pudpong. They

must be doing something right, as they are always full. Also in the 1400-block are Jason’s Neighbour’s Choice Farm Market, the fine clothing store, Leslie Jane — 34 years and still going strong, and Village Fish, 70 years — and still first class. If councillors are serious about improving Ambleside, they need to start with acknowledging their assets in businesses such as ours, instead of supporting such negative comments at public meetings. I think perhaps Sophia Burke and council members should actually pay a visit to our friendly businesses in Ambleside. They might be surprised at the wealth of resources here.

Highrise proliferation has city not feeling so much like home Dear Editor: I have lived most of my life in the City of North Vancouver and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

highrise buildings. Densification is the buzz word that enables developers carte blanche permission to line their pockets at the expense of the local population, who over the last 100 years or so have collectively built this place that we all call home. As one district homeowner wrote recently to the North Shore News, in response to a highrise proposals in the Lynn Valley area: “If I had wanted

to live in Manhattan I would have moved there!” Why bother formulating an official community plan when it is constantly being violated? I understand that our tax rate can be kept low, due to more revenue being generated by allowing more housing to be built, but at what cost to the present city dwellers? For example, if there is a genuinely popular need for a new swimming pool

that would be mainly utilized by the residents of the city and district, why not wait until the funds are obtained through judicious use of taxation from both jurisdictions? How much thought has council given to the existing infrastructure, which will of course be See More page 7

Clark’s big gender gap may not close

IT’S often said that men and women seem to be from different planets, and that certainly seems to be the case when it comes to political attitudes in this province.

Women in B.C. are less worried about the economy than men, view health care as a higher priority and attach less importance on the government balancing its budget. And they are decidedly negative towards the B.C. Liberals, particularly Premier Christy Clark. Those conclusions can be gleaned from drilling down deep in the latest Ipsos-Reid poll, which shows British Columbians favor the New Democratic Party over the B.C. Liberal party in a big way. The NDP has been leading in public opinion for some time, but marked differences in public opinion on some key issues is what’s most striking. They go a long way in explaining why the NDP has such a big lead in the polls these days. About one-half of the electorate is female, and

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

it appears that close to 60 per cent of that base wants the B.C. Liberals out of office. If we assume men and women voted in equal numbers in the 2009 election, about 375,000 women cast their ballots for the B.C. Liberals. Today’s polling suggests more than 125,000 of them have deserted the party they voted for last time. Angus Reid pollster Mario Canseco says the B.C. Liberals are “retaining” only about two-thirds of their voter base from the last election, which suggests at least a third of their women voters have bolted. It’s hard to envision a

scenario that will lead to those female voters returning to the B.C. Liberal fold, particularly when you examine that party’s re-election strategy. For example, Clark and her party are trying to make the economy the key issue in the election campaign on the long-held belief that people don’t trust the NDP when it comes to that issue. However, one of the more telling findings of the Ipsos-Reid poll is the fact that women give the NDP more credit than the B.C. Liberals on those same economic issues Clark keeps emphasizing. When it comes to job creation and managing government finances, women give the NDP a slight but noticeable edge. They’re split down the middle on which party would best manage the economy. When you factor in what appears to be a serious personal animosity among women towards Clark herself, it’s hard to see how this gender gap is going to close at any time. Almost half (42 per cent) of women “disapprove strongly” of the job Clark’s been doing as premier. Men

strongly disapprove of Clark’s performance as well, but some of them seem more forgiving to her party and are willing to vote for it. A majority of women, however, now appear to be strong NDP supporters. The NDP boasts the support of 56 per cent of women, compared to the B.C. Liberal’s level of just 27 per cent. Aside from focusing on an issue — the economy — that half the electorate don’t rank as the top priority and think the other party is better on anyways, the B.C. Liberals have another conundrum to solve. Given that the premier seems to be fairly unpopular,

does showcasing her in a 28day election campaign — with constant appearances on television and radio — further entrench that unpopularity or help to reverse it? Clark herself insists she’s a great campaigner (although I don’t think there’s much evidence to back that assertion up) and can close the gap during the campaign. But women voters appear to be turned off her and her party in a big way and seeing and hearing more of her day after day may simply worsen the problem. In fact, it can be argued Clark’s unpopularity may indeed be linked to the fact she has been in campaign

mode since she became premier. Everything she has done seems to be about politics and not about crafting government policy. There is plenty of internal grumbling within the B.C. Liberal government on just that point. The controversy over her staff crossing the line and mixing government business with partisan work for the party is an example of the constant campaigning that has been going on. A big portion of them, many of them women, have grown very tired of it. Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

Painting’s for Picasso and homeowners

YOU may have heard that house prices here on the North Shore are higher than a weedsmoking mouse sitting in the Pope’s hat. With my typing man’s wages I haven’t yet found a way to take that first step onto the property ladder. It’s a little tricky given that, according to all the media reports, the ladder starts in China. I think my family might soon be ready to take that first step though — we’re eyeing up a Canada Post mailbox just off of Lonsdale Avenue. It’s a little cramped, but I’m sure we’d get to meet a lot of nice people who don’t know how to use the Internet yet. Incoming mail really opens up a great view corridor as well. Really though, we’re a long way away from putting together the scratch to buy a nice house here. Or even a haunted house here. Or a good-sized garden shed. While that reality is a little tough to swallow, there is one great benefit to renting that all you North Van fat cats in your 900 square-foot, $900,000 bungalows don’t get: no painting. In fact, renting has allowed me to fulfill one of the goals I set soon after graduating high school: avoiding all forms of manual labour. Me: “The toilet won’t flush.” Landlord: “Hmmm, maybe if you have a look at the tank, it may just be. . . .” Me: “OK, Bob Vila, just let me know when the plumber is coming. Preferably soon — gotta poop.” I never allowed that beardy Canadian Tire guy to make me feel any less of a man because I didn’t know how to grout my own ball joints or whatever. I’m happily married now anyway — I’ve got no reason to go flaunting my sublime use of caulk. My illest will, however, is

reserved for painting. There’s good reason for it too. Back when I was in high school — before I pledged to avoid a life of grime — I took a summer job working with a painter. It was one of those hire-a-student gigs and the company was a Mennonite painting crew which I took to mean more honest and harder working than your average brush men. I later realized this particular fellow was more honest, harder working and more inclined to low-ball a Grade 11 kid rather than pay a real painter to do work a real painter should have been doing. I showed up to the Day 1 worksite — a farm not far from my small prairie city — gleeful about the $8 I was going to make every single hour for the next eight hours of my life. Cha-ching. Say, boss, do you pay mileage too? No? OK, that’s cool. I got out of my pickup truck — I did say it was the prairies, didn’t I? Even book-learnin’ softies like me drive trucks on the prairies — and my new chief started to explain the job. Boss: “We’re gonna paint this but first we got to sand it all down.” Me: “The door there?” Boss: “Nope, the whole thing.” Do you want to know what he was talking about? A barn. A whole goddamned barn! Sorry if my language offends your pacifist Mennonite ears, but I’m not sure if the West Coasters

realize how big barns are. Picture your house, and then picture a giant goddamned barn! The boss passed electronic sanders to me and his son — family member, more savings! — and then hopped back into his van and drove off to another job site to paint bikinis on swimsuit models (probably). I fired up the sander and pressed it up against the dirty old wood. Hey, this is kind of fun. Wait nope, not fun. Oh boy, my hand is numb. My arm is numb. This is the worst ever. OK, time for a

little break to regroup. How much time left in the day? Seven hours, 59 minutes and 15 seconds. Uh oh. Three days later we were still sanding, only now we were doing it on the other side of the barn inside a pen that housed an honestto-God bull. At least we weren’t covered in red. Then we started painting. You’ll never guess what colour. No worries though — by this point death by goring seemed like a pretty good option. Our next job was at a house much farther away

from town. Say boss, can I get the odometer rolling before I get to work? No? Alright. In the house we were renovating, my boss put me into rooms I could do the least damage in but I still managed to destroy an old vacuum. Not my fault though — no one explicitly told me not to suck up that rubber glove. My final job was actually in town — yay! — and at a seemingly fun place: a cereal factory. Do we get to paint the frosting on the flakes? Nope, you get to stay

outside and sand this 50-foot silo. Here’s your ladder. After I spent four hours sanding the same tiny patch of paint three feet off of the ground and deathly afraid to climb one rung higher, the painter and I decided it was time to part ways. Later that summer I got another hire-a-slavestudent job knocking down an old manure shoot and installing a new manure shoot on a pig farm. It was a huge step up over painting. Since that summer I’ve See Renters page 10

Vitamin C and Lysine powder help prevent heart attacks by W. Gifford-Jones M.D. Why is heart attack the number one killer in this country? Ninetynine percent of doctors say it’s due to atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) and that cholesterol lowering drugs are the primary way to treat it. But I suggest cardiologists have closed minds and are ignoring facts that could save thousands of North Americans from coronary attack. History shows mankind is not kind to new ideas. In 1847 one maternity patient in six who entered the University Hospital in Vienna left in a coffin. Why? Because esteemed professors ridiculed Dr. Semmelweiss, a colleague, for showing that by simply washing hands after doing an autopsy, deaths were prevented. Years later Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner, is ignored for reporting that large amounts of vitamin C and lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twenty-five years ago Pauling reported that animals make vitamin C and humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during long sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived. Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Williams Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Wellington University in New Zealand, proved Pauling was right. Stebhens’ research showed that coronary arteries closest to the heart are under the greatest pressure. This causes collagen to fracture resulting in the formation of a blood clot and death. Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proved that vitamin C can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later additional pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries. So what has happened to these monumental findings? Bush, like Semmelweiss, has been ridiculed by cardiologists. One has to ask whether cardiologists, by ignoring his results, are condemning thousands of people to an early coronary heart attack. Fourteen years ago following my own coronary attack, cardiologists claimed it was sheer madness for me to refuse cholesterol-lowering drugs. Instead, I decided to take high doses of vitamin C plus lysine with breakfast and the evening meal, for several reasons. I knew that Dr. Graveline, a physician and NASA astronaut, had twice developed transient global amnesia from taking Lipitor. I was also aware that patients have died from CLDs. Others have developed kidney, liver and muscle complications. I also believed the research of Pauling and Stehbens irrefutable. Now, the work of Dr. Bush has convinced me my decision was prudent. But to take large doses of vitamin C and lysine requires swallowing many pills daily. It’s a tall order for those who dislike swallowing one pill. So for several years I’ve been trying to find a company that would manufacture a combination of vitamin C and lysine powder. Now Medi-C Plus is available at health food stores. The dosage for the Medi-C Plus combination is one flat scoop with breakfast and the evening meal. Those at greater risk should take one flat scoop three times a day. If high doses cause diarrhea, the dose should be decreased. This column does not recommend that those taking CLDs should stop them. This is a decision that can only be made by patients and doctors. Most of today’s, cardiologists are impervious to persuasion. They continue to believe that cholesterollowering drugs are the be-all-and-end-all to prevent heart attack. They’ve been brain-washed by millions of dollars worth of promotion by pharmaceutical companies. It reminds me of the saying that cautions “It’s not what you don’t know what gets you into trouble, it’s the things you know for sure that ain’t so!” It’s time for cardiologists to have an open mind and stop ignoring this research. As for me – I bet my life on it!

INQUIRING REPORTER THE Canadian Border Services recently raided a construction site in Vancouver to round up alleged illegal immigrants suspected of working there. A film crew went with them, recording the detentions for a reality TV show named Border Security. The reality-show aspect has outraged many, who believe the detainees were exploited for entertainment and not for Canadian welfare. An online petition asking National Geographic to cancel the program has collected more than 20,000 signatures. Find us on Facebook and Twitter and tell us what you think. — Sam Smith

City debates duplex secondary suites Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

SHOULD every duplex in the City of North Vancouver be able to house a secondary suite as well? That is a question council wrestled with Monday night but stopped short of answering.

The city is contemplating allowing for smaller selfcontained apartments within duplex units similar to how they are allowed in singlefamily residences. Council held a public hearing on the matter Monday night, drawing out several frustrated residents, most of whom agreed on allowing secondary suites in duplexes, but only if the city found a way

to do it right. The city has had a moratorium on enforcing its bylaws against illegal secondary suites in hopes that the owners will go out of their way to bring them up to code and register them with the city. The city is entertaining allowing secondary suites in owner-occupied duplexes, but some residents have other concerns. A glut of investment

Man arrested after pulling knife on parents

SURREY RCMP have arrested a Vancouver man wanted for making threats at a West Vancouver home last week.

Residents in the British Properties neighbourhood called West Vancouver police shortly after 4 a.m. Thursday when their adult son allegedly threatened his parents while wielding a knife. The dispute was over money, police say. Police issued a warrant for 27-year-old Houman Rahmani Friday on charges of uttering threats and robbery. Surrey RCMP officers spotted Rahmani at a cheque cashing outlet Saturday evening and arrested him without incident. Rahmani now faces four charges of utter threats to cause death or bodily harm and one count of robbery. —Brent Richter

“MASTER THE ROAD”

THE West Vancouver Yacht Club is hoping a little more liquor will float its boat.

The club has applied to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch to serve 50 additional thirsty patrons, prompting district council to gauge community support for the extra merriment. Council voted unanimously to collect concerns and opinions related to the amended licence at a meeting Monday. The Marine Drive club is expanding its clubhouse and boosting lounge space to accommodate a maximum of 222 drinkers, up from 172, necessitating an amendment to its current liquor primary licence. Anyone who believes they would be affected by the change is encouraged to send their views to mayorandcouncil@ westvancouver.ca. Letters can also be delivered to West Vancouver’s municipal hall. Submissions will be received until April 22. Extra noise and other impacts on the community are two of LCLB’s main criteria in judging an application.

Sam Smith editor@nsnews.com

PLATINUM-SELLING Canadian music icon Barney Bentall is coming down to the Lower Mainland next week for a live show at the Electric Owl. An easily described legend of Canadian music, the Juno Award winning roots musician is set to perform a re-imagining of Bob Dylan’s classic album Blood on the Tracks. Not to be confused with a cover of the album, a re-imagining allows some creative licence for Bentall, along with Vancouver-based musicians Steve Dawson and the Black Hen House Band, to add some of their own personal flair.

ASCENT OF WOMEN PAGE 18

Or, as Bentall says, an excuse if the show takes a turn for the worse. “We might just be trying to give ourselves a way out if we drive her off the rails and crash and burn!” Bentall wrote in an email interview from Chile. “The performance then becomes a metaphor.” Bentall describes his take on Dylan’s album not so much a challenge, but a learning process for him in his own quest to find his voice. Even if he is a seasoned and accomplished artist, he believes he is always learning and evolving his music. “It takes a long time to find your own voice. Hell, I’m still finding mine,” Bentall said. “I think Bob Dylan found his voice, strength and direction early in the game and had, and continues to have, a significant impact on the world.” Most known for his work in his band Barney Bentall and the Legendary Hearts, Bentall describes Bob Dylan as a major influence on him. He only wishes to honour the legend’s body of work, even if it is a departure from his usual style. “I’m an unworthy disciple of this great work of art and I’m hoping that we

Motown maintains its appeal after 50 years ■ Shooting Stars Foundation presents Motown Meltdown, Saturday, March 23, 7 p.m. at the Commodore Ballroom, 868 Granville St., Vancouver. Tickets $40.75 at ticketmaster.ca.

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

CHUCK Berry was in jail, Elvis was in the army, and the Beatles were still in their teens. The end of the 1950s presented a pop culture void, and ambitious entrepreneur and Jackie Wilson songwriter Berry Gordy, Jr. set out to fill it with something spectacular. Youthful energy, mainstream sensibility, and the precise groove of the drummers, strummers, and horns from Detroit’s jazz scene fused to create a sound that was both innocuous and inspiring, pure and potent. The music of Hitsville, U.S.A. is set to be celebrated March 23 with the Motown Meltdown, featuring 25 performers interpreting music from the label that showcased Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Mary Wells, and Marvin Gaye. Among the performers attempting to recreate the magic created in that famed garage studio is singer and voice actor Rebecca Shoichet. Born in Ottawa and raised in Victoria, Shoichet was raised on the music of Rickie Lee Jones and Earth, Wind & Fire, not truly discovering jazz until she found herself facing the chasm between the end of high school and the beginning of her adult life.

At the age of 18 Shoichet was the veteran of nearly a decade’s worth of shows at the Victoria Operatic Society but saw no place to pursue her passion for musical theatre. Her brother, a bass player, had his own ideas. “He said, ‘You know, you should learn some jazz standards. In fact we could busk downtown,’” Shoichet recalls. “We decided to put together a trio my first year out of high school.” Between serving as a nanny and haunting Victoria cafes with a sound influenced by soulful song stylist Sarah Vaughan, Shoichet searched for her niche. “I couldn’t find any musical theatre where I could study dance, study acting and study singing at that time,” she says. As luck would have it, a friend returned to Victoria that Christmas bearing news of just such a program. “She came back at Christmas time and said, ‘I am in the most amazing program. You’re going to freak out.’” After freaking out, Shoichet hopped a plane for Toronto and auditioned for Sheridan College. Despite a head cold escorted by a temporary loss of hearing, Shoichet’s voice was strong enough to gain her entry into the arts school. “Throughout the program especially, it comes into light who’s willing to do the hard work and who’s willing to just ride on pure talent,” she says. “The people that stayed were not necessarily the people who were the most talented but the people who were really willing See Shoichet page 28

VST Gives New Meaning to Looking Good Feeling Great Nearsighted British Columbians wanting to get rid of their glasses or contact lenses now have an alternative to laser surgery “Vision Shaping Treatment” (VST) corrects vision while patients sleep allowing for a lens free day or longer. The retainer worn at night like an orthodontic device realigns the shape of the cornea without touching it. The new shape is maintained during the day when the correcting lenses are removed. Dr. Bart McRoberts and Dr. Clark Bowden of Optomeyes Eye Care have been performing the procedure for 10 years on patients from age 10 to 63.

One of the most exciting characteristics of this procedure is it’s ability to slow or stop the progression of nearsightedness in children. To see if you’re a candidate consider attending the Free informative VST seminar on April 3 at 7pm, at the West Vancouver office. Seating is limited, so call and book your spot today, or RSVP to Rhea at rhea@optomeyes.ca.

pull off the caper and do it a little bit of justice,” he said. Bentall has been active in music for more than 30 years and in that time has released three independent and seven studio albums. His work with the Legendary Hearts proved to be his most commercially successful venture, but that hasn’t stopped him from pursuing his own solo career, even after a six-year hiatus which began in 2000 when the now 57-year-old settled on a ranch in the Cariboo region of B.C. He also continues to work with many West Coast artists, recently contributing his talents to West Vancouver’s Tom Taylor’s latest album Pull Over Here. “Tom is a fantastic singer/ songwriter and a class act,” Bentall said. “Producing his album Pull Over Here was one of the best recording experiences I’ve had.” Bentall has interest in other West Coast artists as

well, with acts such as Pharis and Jason Romero, residents of Cariboo, recently catching his eye. His own son, Dustin Bentall, has taken off as a professional musician in his own right. Dustin’s self-described country/ psychedelic/rock style from his Myspace page is quality music, Barney says. And something he looks forward to hearing for a long time. “It’s great to watch Dustin out there working hard and putting out some really fine music,” Bentall said. “I’m really proud of what he’s doing and it’s good to know I’ll be well entertained in the old folks home!” Bentall is looking forward to his performance set at the Electric Owl this Wednesday, March 27. Accompanying him on stage will be Steve Dawson, Geoff Hicks, Keith Lowe and Chris Gestrin.

Women’s efforts turning global tide

n Sally Armstrong, author of Ascent of Women, in discussion with UBC journalism instructor Kathryn Gretsinger, part of the Vancouver Writers Fest, Monday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Andrew’s-Wesley United Church in Vancouver. Tickets: $21/$19, visit vancouvertix.com.

PREPARING to leave Afghanistan on one of her many journalistic missions, Sally Armstrong said goodbye to the women she had been hiding out with — women who had been compelled to share their stories with her, but, under the Taliban, feared being seen with her.

“Where I go, believe me, the people in power don’t want me there,” she says. “And they will do everything they can to either get rid of me or make my life so difficult that I’ll leave, which I never do. But the women, they’ll get me around,” she says. Their final act of generosity, stuffing her pockets with sweet cakes and naan bread, is something she’s never forgotten.

“I thought, ‘This is unbelievable. They’re worried about the comfort of my journey out of a place that’s basically put them in prison.’ But women are like that.” For more than 25 years, Armstrong, an award-winning journalist, humanitarian and member of the Order of Canada, has fought to bring the stories of women and girls living in conflict zones and developing countries to light in an effort to influence positive change. While she hasn’t always had “good” news stories to tell, the spirit and perseverance of the women she’s encountered has continued to drive her. “I feel very humbled that the women will tell me their stories. Women always have hope. They have to,” she says. Armstrong too has an optimistic heart and in her new book, Ascent of Women: Our turn, our way — a remarkable story of worldwide change, she explores the impacts of the countless changemakers she’s met over the years whose efforts are currently being felt the world over like never before. “I decided I would do the book because this is brand new, this is really important and I wanted to get it out there,” she says. Armstrong will offer insight into the work, Monday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Andrew’s-Wesley United Church in Vancouver as part of the Vancouver Writers Fest. The Montreal, Que. native’s career covering war and human rights stories, filing stories from the frontlines in Bosnia, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, is a far cry from her initial job as a physical education teacher. Armstrong says she was “very” pregnant with their third child when her husband’s boss’ wife called her and said, “‘There’s a man opening a magazine. I gave him your name.’” “I said, ‘My name?’ I never wrote anything. I was always the bridesmaid they gave the wine to and said, ‘Write the poem for the shower,’ but I’d never done anything,” she says, reached Tuesday from Calgary, where she had travelled as part of her current cross-Canada book tour. Armstrong currently splits her time between Salt Spring Island, Toronto, Ont. and her cottage near Bathurst, N.B. Despite her reservations, she took the meeting, figuring due to her pregnancy she wasn’t going to be doing a lot of round off back handsprings in the near future, she says. She got the job, as did her boss’ wife, a home economics teacher who gave sewing lessons over at the CBC at lunchtime. “I thought, ‘Oh, she must be real media. She must know how to do this,’” says Armstrong. A third woman, a recipe developer at Canada Packers, was also hired and they served as the founding editors of Canadian Living magazine. “That’s where I learned and I loved it immediately and moved on from there,” she says, of her career in journalism. While at Canadian Living, Armstrong had an opportunity to write a story out of Liberia, and her passion became clear. She continued writing stories in that vein when she moved on to become editor of Homemakers, a publication with a reputation for being a “thinking woman’s magazine.” “The editors before me had already taken on all the big issues of the ’80s — incest and wife assault and domestic violence, all those kinds of things,” she says. “I took over in ’88 and at that time, I figured the all-news networks were in our living rooms and it changed what we know. We used to be able to say, ‘I didn’t know.’ And if you don’t know, you’re not driven to any sort of action. But once those all-news networks were in our living rooms, we knew.” Polling her readers, she realized they were just as upset as she was and likewise craved more information than the 90-second truncated TV news reports provided, and so Homemakers started publishing articles covering conflict from the point of view of what happens to women and girls in war-torn countries

FREELANCE journalist Sally Armstrong has covered war and human rights stories in Bosnia, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. around the world. “The readers poured through the windows and doors,” says Armstrong, who maintained her post as editor as well as began travelling to remote locations to research articles for publication in the magazine. Armstrong is currently a freelance journalist, contributing regularly to CBC Radio’s Ideas program as well as Chatelaine and Macleans. Ascent of Women follows Armstrong’s previous books, which include Veiled Threat: The Hidden Power of the Women of Afghanistan (2002), Bitter Roots, Tender Shoots: The Uncertain Fate of Afghanistan’s Women (2008) and The Nine Lives of Charlotte Taylor (2007). She previously served on the United Nations’ International Women’s Commission, and is currently on the advisory council for Human Rights Watch. She is also an avid speaker at fundraisers for humanitarian organizations, including Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan, the Stephen Lewis Foundation and the Canadian Women’s Foundation. Early in her career, she worried about being known as both a journalist and a humanitarian. “I know I have to seek the truth of what’s happening and report that back to my readers. That’s my job. I used to worry when people would say journalist/ humanitarian because I felt like they were putting me down as a journalist but I don’t worry about those things anymore,” she says. Armstrong decided to write Ascent of Women: Our turn, our way after experiencing an epiphany, feeling as if the “earth was shifting,” seeing women’s efforts towards change not only taking root but turning the tide. Among the things she’s noticed is the increased communication among women, seeing them come together, including in their respective communities, like African women taking a stand to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS, and in forming effective international organizations like Women Living Under Muslim Laws. As well, thanks to the Internet and social media, women from Africa, to Asia and the Americas have been able to connect with one another. “I think the worst thing that ever happened to extremists

FILM

The Croods worthy of your 3-D dollars

■ The Croods. Directed by Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco. Featuring Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Catherine Keener. Rating: 6 (out of 10)

Julie Crawford Contributing Writer

FEEDING off the colossal success of that other prehistoric franchise, Ice Age, DreamWorks hopes to attract big numbers with some big Hollywood names. Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Nicolas Cage star as a prehistoric family on the move after their world starts crumbling around them. Crood family patriarch Grug (Cage) has seen his neighbours gobbled up by predators, and decides that the best way to keep his family safe is to stick to their cave. “New is always dangerous” is the Crood credo. If you thought being grounded to your room was bad, try being confined to hole in a rock. Understandably, teenaged Eep (Stone) is going more than a little stir crazy hanging out with baby Sandy, mom Ugga (Catherine Keener), her dottery Gran (Cloris Leachman) and lunk-headed brother Thunk (Clark Duke, Hot Tub Time Machine). She longs to see the world beyond the cave’s mouth, danger or not. One night Eep sneaks out and encounters Guy (Reynolds), a dude her age with perfect pecs and a theory about impending doom. Plus he can make fire: how can dad compete with that? Grug is old-school while Guy is a Renaissance man, a few million years early. This clash between old and new forms the primary discord of the tale. Add that to typical teen hormones and dad’s inherent inability to let go of his little girl, and it’s going to be a long epoch. The family finds themselves on the march after their cave is destroyed. The jungle is sure a lot more colourful than the cave, with technicolour flora and fauna and giant saber-toothed kitties to match. There are even creatures caught in mid-evolution, like the Fish Cat (felinus pisceatus). But danger and wonder are found in equal measure on their journey to the promised land. They travel en masse with Belt, the world’s first pet.

DreamWorks Animation photo

EEP, voiced by Emma Stone, takes in her new world in The Croods, which follows a prehistoric family on the move after their cave is destroyed. Scan this photo with the Layar app to watch the trailer. “What’s a pet?” asks Gran. “An animal you don’t eat,” Guy replies. “We call those children,” she answers. The banter is peppy but wears a little thin before the film’s end. On the plus side, filmmakers resist the urge to reference pop culture (a la Shrek), making The Croods a more traditional kids’ movie. The Croods has a genuine pedigree: director Chris Sanders earned Academy Award nominations for How To Train Your Dragon and Lilo and Stitch; Kirk DeMicco co-wrote and directed Space Chimps and Racing Stripes. And Roger Deakins, cinematographer of such grown-up tales as Skyfall and True

Grit, has become the go-to visual effects consultant enlisted to make kids’ flicks a panoramic, multi-layered experience. So far he’s livened up the animated vistas of Rise of the Guardians, Rango, How To Train Your Dragon, Puss In Boots and Wall-E, and his touch undoubtedly helped make The Croods worthy of your 3-D dollars. The Croods is populated by colourful, fanciful creatures, paving the way for novelizations, electronic games, dolls, plush toys and Croodaceous Creature Packs. (The Croods McDonaldland Happy Meal toys are already available for purchase on eBay). The film is an entertaining enough Jurassic journey, but a little more oomph to the script would’ve made it a great one.

THEATRE

Man with the magic touch

■ Vitaly: An Evening of Wonders, Saturday, March 23, 7 p.m. at Presentation House Theatre. Tickets $22 at phtheatre.org.

Sam Smith editor@nsnews.com

SKEPTICS would have us believe magic isn’t real. That it’s merely a grand spectacle of sneak and illusion, showmanship and creativity, and a fast pair of hands. It’s like a ninja, but with more pizzazz. Well, perhaps magic isn’t real. But following this illusionist’s work, those in attendance who play along won’t be able to legally drive home. That’s real. No, audience members aren’t getting drunk for this trick. But this master of illusion will take a driver’s licence, any licence, remove the face and place any other face one desires in its place. It’s an illusion that took years, from inception to realization, for Vitaly Beckman to create and master, and it’s just one of many original concoctions he is bringing to the North Shore on Saturday, March 23 with his show entitled “An Evening of Wonders.” “If you’re not happy with your driver’s licence photo, bring it to the show and I will literally remove people’s faces and I will then exchange their faces,” he said. “They can take it home if they like the new picture. I hope not to get in trouble with the RCMP.”

As slick and sneaky as Edward Norton in The Illusionist and fairly less insane than Hugh Jackman in The Prestige, Beckman aims to astonish North Shore residents with his utterly original illusions, just as he’s tried to do since his quest in magic first began 17 years ago. The Belarus-born illusionist began his career at the age of 14 when the aspiring artist put down the paintbrush and picked up a wand — metaphorically, of course. “When I was a teenager I watched quite a lot of magicians on television,” Beckman says, explaining his fascination with the craft. “One of them was David Copperfield. Penn and Teller, Siegfried and Roy, I watched really a lot of magicians.” These world-famous acts inspired Beckman to not only take a crack at magic and illusions, but pushed his firm belief that whatever you create should be original. And if you do it, go for the gusto. “My magic isn’t just the type of magic that happens on stage, it happens in the entire theatre,” Beckman said. “Objects will teleport from one audience member to another audience member’s hands. I want them to immerse in the magic.” Magic is more to Beckman than a good time. It’s a way of perceiving life a little differently, and capturing the feeling of wonder and curiosity we all had as children. “I encourage the audience in the show to use our imaginations as I think that’s the key to finding real magic in our lives,” he said. “If we have any kind of problem, I try to look more within.” This is the third time Beckman will

be performing in North Vancouver’s Presentation House. He has performed internationally for people of all ages, and he won’t stop until he’s restored the once jaw-dropping wonder the magicians of old inspired. Yet he knows he can’t just pull a rabbit out of a black top hat or pretend to slowly and painfully saw someone in half. Keeneyed audience members are getting crafty and skeptical and jump at the chance to call out any half-hearted attempts. This is why Beckman will spend years creating and perfecting an illusion to the point where even the most skeptical observer will have trouble coming up with an answer. “I really look within my own imagination and try and get inspired,” Beckman said. “It can be a year or two before I figure out how to execute an idea, then a couple of years after that performing and perfecting it for audiences.” His belief is dreams can become reality. He dreams of a paintbrush that paints by itself, or creating drawings that come to life before the audience. And he wants you to jump inside his head and come along for the ride. “It’s about the feeling of becoming a child again,” he said. “As kids we notice that we haven’t seen this before, it looks wondrous. When we grow older … life becomes like a routine and we notice less and we don’t pay attention to the beauty that’s everywhere around us. When we watch magic it sharpens our senses, it reminds us of those sensations and life becomes less of a routine after that, hopefully.”

Shoichet keeps the faith From page 16 to work their butts off because it’s a hard business to be in.” Asked what Sheridan’s talent judges saw in her, Shoichet takes a moment before answering. “I guess maybe what they saw was a positive attitude and willingness to work maybe some nuggets of talent,” she offers. That talent was put to the test when Shoichet graduated. “I took a leap of faith when I moved to Vancouver after going to school. I decided not to do any barista jobs or anything like that just to see if I could get my foot in the door in the Vancouver scene,” she says. The voice that was on display on Victoria streets continued to be an asset for Shoichet, who used her range, power and feel to sing funk with Soulstream, French pop with Mimosa, and bring life to dogs, pixies, and fairies. When not on stage, Shoichet has been the voice behind characters in InuYasha and other anime programs as well as Twilight Sparkle in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. “I still have a special place in my heart for a character I played in Kid vs. Kat and his name was Lorne. He was a bit of a bruiser, the stocky kid who was a bit of a bully, but because he wasn’t super-bright, was pretty endearing and fun to play,” she says. Speaking to the North Shore News while parked on the side of the road, shortly after dropping her kids off at school and before heading to rehearsals, Shoichet reflects on her career. “There’s a lot to be said for having faith, that if you keep working at it that you’ll find your niche and you’ll get the role that you deserve,” she says. “I think being in this business it’s always a bit of a test. . . . Are you up for it this year? Can you keep making this your business, because it’s not a stable career by any means. It’s like a

rollercoaster. Some years you hardly make any money, and some years you make more money. I also learned how to diversify which was a huge asset for me. So I do the voiceover, and I do the commercial work and I do the singer/songwriter stuff on my own.” While lending emotions to an animated bee may seem distinct from her musical career, the two pursuits complement each other, according to Shoichet. “You draw on feelings from within yourself as you would when you’re acting any character on stage,” she says of singing. “Otherwise it makes it just the notes.” Shoichet is planning to do her version of Brenda Holloway’s hit “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy” at the Motown Meltdown show. The pop song, which marries jazz crooning with full-on gospel testifying, has been covered several times. “I’ve decided to use the Blood, Sweat and Tears version because it’s pretty rockin,’” Shoichet says. “When it comes to doing a show like Motown Meltdown you only get one shot.” It’s been more than 50 years since the first Motown 45 was pressed (Marv Johnson’s “Come to Me”). Despite the musical craftsmanship that textured the Motown sound, the label was always in close contact with the listener. Motown was known for testing tracks on a small radio to get an idea how its singles would sound on a car radio, according to the book Where Did Our Love Go? by Nelson George. For Shoichet, the appeal of Motown has not worn off over the last half-century. “It comes from a really solid groove and an understanding of that kind of heart in music. People were writing from the soul. It’s soul music. There’s magic to it. And it also makes people want to dance. It makes people feel good about being alive.”

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE

mattie à la mode

Contrast is key for spring DEAR Mattie:

What colours are in fashion this spring? Styling in Edgemont

Follow us on Twitter @NSNLook.

Dear Edgemont: There are many new styles and colours that are trending this season. The colours fall into two extremes. There is a light grouping as well as a dark one. Wearing contrasting colours is the new trend. There is a lot of black in fashion this spring. I am not a fan of too much black in spring and summer as I feel we should explore the new trends and pick fashions that are cheerful. If you do opt for some of the black fashions, add white to create a contrast. Colour-blocking trends are popular this season. Yellow with black is also a new trend that contributes to the look of effortless colour blocking that has a sleek and understated look. Consider bold accessories so that you look in tune with fashion. Colour blocking alone might look too simple. Many of the lighter colours are incorporated into delicate fabrics. The fabric allows the flow of the silhouette. There is lace, sheer, chiffon and satiny fabrics that have a sophisticated yet casual appeal. There are gold and silver metallic threads that shimmer these colours into the evening. The lighter colours fall into two categories. The pastels are soft feminine colours. The pastels vary in the range of light blue, green, and pink. The bolder colours are only bold in comparison. They are not daring colours. They are a muted version. The muted colours are raspberry instead of red, carrot instead of orange and turquoise instead of electric blue. The trend in colours this season is to wear tons of it.

Therefore, all pastels and all muted colours are in fashion this season. This large variety of colour options allows for the great patterns that are also in fashion this spring. These patterns use the pastels with the muted colours. Plaids are making a comeback in new colour combos. Florals aren’t so big this season, unless they are mini daisies or outlines of flowers. Graphic prints including circles and dots are fun and trendy. Horizontal and vertical stripes have a modern edge. Most of the abstract prints have two or three colours, not more. It is a graphic look, not an overwhelming one. All of these colours and prints work because of the layering trend that is still in fashion. Wearing older pieces with new pieces, or muted pieces with pastels works in the way you put them together. Fashionable layering can subdue some of the louder prints as well as make your outfit pop. Layering is a great way to create a balanced modern look. The silhouette this season complements the colours, patterns and layering. It is a fit and flare look. Some pieces are fitted and the other half is flared. Top or bottom, mix and match, you choose. The look is of volume, not narrow. The centre is your waistline, which is nipped at the higher end of your waist, just below your ribs. Fashions this season are going to be romantic and edgy. Your outfit, whether casual or formal, should have an element of contrast. Adieu, Mattie

Refine Spa finds its niche in Ambleside Christine Lyon clyon@nsnews.com

MEDICAL spas, or medi-spas, are becoming an increasingly popular purveyor of esthetic services, prompting one local entrepreneur to offer a gentler alternative.

Gislinde Bronson, co-owner of Refine Spa in Ambleside, focuses her beauty business on non-invasive treatments. While medi-services such as Botox, laser skin care and microdermabrasion may offer quick results, Bronson says the procedures are costly and just one step away from surgery. “There’s a lot of women who, first of all, don’t want to spend the money on it, and are just totally against all these invasive procedures, because they actually have to damage your skin to repair it. We don’t damage the skin in any way here at all,” she says. One of the signature pieces of equipment at Refine Spa is the R-Lift, a $10,000 machine that uses red LED light and micro-currents to target aging skin cells. A pronged tool follows the contour of the face, contracting and relaxing the muscles. “You actually put a gel on the face and that prevents you from getting shocked because it is a current and it’s like an ultrasound,” Bronson says. The R-Lift is used alongside a facial treatment, which may incorporate the spa’s recently launched Swiss Line paramedical skincare products. Another one of Refine Spa’s non-invasive resources is the Eurowave slimming machine, which promises to help people lose inches without going under the knife. “You put it on any part of your body that you want

Bronson opened her Marine Drive spa in November 2011 as Refine Express Spa, seeking to fill what she perceived as a gap between the quickie nail studios and highend hotel spas. Last year, she teamed up with co-owner Brian Hooshi and the pair are now undergoing a rebranding process, removing the word “express” from their business name and revamping their menu of products and services.

The spa interior has a distinct Westcoast flavour, featuring an earthy colour palette with stone and pinecone accents.

Women breaking silence From page 18 and misogynists and fundamentalists was the day those women started talking to each other. . . . Women wearing hijab found out that despite what the fundamentalists had said, women wearing jeans were not all whores and the women wearing jeans found out that despite what they’d been told, women wearing hijab were not all subjugated and oppressed,” says Armstrong. Increased emphasis on the importance of education has also contributed to the felt change. Armstrong recalls a woman in Afghanistan she interviewed who related being unable to read as “being blind,” stating, “‘I couldn’t read so I couldn’t see what was going on.’” “Women have started to ask questions they never dared to ask before. They’re asking where is it written in the Qur’an that my daughter can’t go to school? Where is it written that I can’t go to work?” she adds. Ascent of Women chronicles a number of positive stories, including the Senegal women who are helping eradicate female genital cutting and the 160 Kenyan girls, ages three to 17, who are suing their government for failing to protect them from being raped. “All these things that are happening wouldn’t have happened a couple of years ago,” says Armstrong, who’s been “absolutely delighted” with the response she’s received for her book thus far. “Although my research is very, very strong and I can back up every claim, I was afraid that some people would say, ‘Oh come on. Things are too terrible for women. You couldn’t possibly be turning a corner.’ And that hasn’t happened, the opposite has happened. People are saying, ‘I thought this too’ and ‘I’m so glad to hear this’ and I think people are really

When asked what society members in the Western world can do to help the women she’s come to know further their respective causes, Armstrong says of course supporting worthy NGOs is important, but the most important thing is for community members to use their own voice to inspire change. “I don’t think people realize how valuable their voices are,” she says. “We tend to think, ‘I’m not famous enough, or rich enough or powerful enough. I’m only one person. I can’t make any change. Nothing I say or do is going to change anything’ and that’s not true. Your voice is really, really valuable. When you speak up and say, ‘This is not okay with me,’ you’re planting a seed and you’re doing a very important thing.”

Photo collection shows off best of architecture

■ Balthazar Korab: Architect of Photography by John Comazzi, Princeton Architectural Press, 192 pages, $45 For Balthazar Korab the twin careers of architect and photographer have been a perfect fit. In both areas his work has been driven by visual aesthetics and practical applications. As a young man he left his native Hungary in 1949 to escape the communist regime and finished his architectural studies in Paris. In 1955 he was hired by Eero Saarinen as a designer and soon became the U.S. firm’s official photographer. His architect’s sensibilities combined with a brilliant eye for composition produced stunning images of projects for Saarinen’s firm and later a wide range of other architects.

Throughout his long career his passion for design has driven him to create remarkable studies of projects in various stages of completion. This collection of photographs show not only his distinctive approach but also showcases the work of many of the top architects of the 20th century. — Terry Peters

JOYCE TAYLOR (1920-2013) It is with profound sadness that we announce that our Mum, Joyce passed away peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, March 10th at her home in West Vancouver. Joyce was born in Regina to Edna and Percy Traub. She trained to be a physiotherapist at the University of Toronto and ser ved overseas in England in the Canadian Army Medical Corps during the Second World War. While there, in 1944, she married Doug Watterson, a young Canadian RCAF pilot whom she had first met in Regina. Tragically, Doug was killed only a week later during a night mission. However, Joyce was pregnant and returned home and their son David Douglas was born in 1945. Joyce moved to Calgary after the war where she worked as a physio at the Colonel Belcher Hospital before establishing one of the first and most highly respected private physio practices, the Medical Art Physiotherapy Clinic. In 1956, Joyce remarried to Michael Taylor, a widower recently emigrated from England. His young son Paul thereafter joined the family. Joyce and Michael then had two children, Elizabeth and John. Joyce, Michael and Elizabeth moved to England in 1971 and returned to Canada in 1975, settling in West Vancouver. After their separation in 1979, Joyce remained in West Vancouver. Joyce led a very active life & enjoyed golfing, cross-country skiing, walking, playing bridge, and travelling abroad. She loved Music in the Morning and participated as a volunteer with the Vancouver Art Gallery & the Vancouver Symphony. Joyce was a warm-hearted and generous person who was blessed with a wide circle of friends and relatives here, in Calgary and in England. She remained very active in her favourite pastimes and played bridge with friends only a few days before she passed away. Joyce was predeceased by her younger brothers, Gordon and Barry. She adored being Grandma to Natalie, David, Charlie and George and will be deeply missed by them, by her very special son John, and by Doug & Sandy, Elizabeth & Robert, Paul & Cathy, sisters-in-law Donna Traub and Ann Traub and her nieces, nephews and other family and friends. A celebration of Joyce’s life will be held on Thursday, March 28th, 2:00 pm. at First Memorial Boal Chapel 1505 Lillooet Rd., North Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, friends may wish to make a donation to the North Shore ConneXions Society or Community Living BC in her name.

SHAW - Robert Wayne August 18, 1937 - March 8, 2013

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Wayne Shaw. On the night of Friday, March 8th 2013, at age 75, we said goodbye to a brave father, papi and friend. He was a charming intellectual with a tender heart, who had a way with words as was shown in every story that he shared. Wayne was born in Flin Flon, Manitoba and grew up in Vancouver, where he graduated from UBC and eventually settled and raised his family in West Vancouver. A cultured man who possessed an immense affection for art, history and travelling, he spent part of his early teenage years living in Brazil and later lived in Montreal as a young man. He had a passion for Costa Rica and travelled there throughout his middle years. Wayne lived life and his wild mountain adventures made him a ‘legend’ in Whistler. His career spanned various occupations in the insurance and stock market industries. He was co-founder of Shaw Sabey & Associates and went on to be a successful stock promoter in his golden years. Survived and greatly loved by his children, Greg (Andrea), Alicia (Raivo), Lauren, Emma (Dustin) and his grandchildren, Kayla, Nevaeh and Natasha. He also leaves behind his aunt Elinor, her daughter Andrea, the mother of his children Judy Shaw, and many friends. We are deeply grateful to the doctors and nurses in the ICU and Palliative Care Unit at Lions Gate Hospital, for their compassion and support. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation would be appreciated. A Memorial Service will be held at 10 am on Saturday, March 23rd at First Memorial Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Vancouver, followed by a Celebration of Life at 2 pm at the Beach House in Dundarave at 120 25th Street, West Vancouver, B.C.

DUFFY, Elisabeth Dorothea Nov 19, 1928 - Mar 07, 2013 Our dearest Elisabeth (Lisl, Oma) passed away peacefully in her North Vancouver home on March 7, 2013, surrounded by her loving family. She leaves behind her beloved husband of 53 years, Patrick, her much loved children Ann, Dorli (Robert), Wendy (Fergus) and John (Cathy), and cherished grand-children, Margot, Ryan, William, Henry and Simon. Predeceased by her brother Christoph in Vienna, and survived by her twin sister Adelina and nieces and nephews in Austria. Lisl was born to Herbert and Dorothea von Bandian in Vienna on November 19, 1928. She enjoyed a charmed childhood and told of happy family times playing games and of lakeside summer holidays. Living through WWII brought out Lisl’s resourcefulness and resilience which served her well for the rest of her life. Blessed with a gift for numbers and natural organizational skills, Lisl enjoyed working in hotel management in Switzerland, Italy, the Bahamas, the US and Canada. She followed her brother Christoph to Toronto in 1956. While working at the Banff Springs Hotel, Lisl met Patrick on the hotel tennis courts. They married in 1959 and began family life in Calgary where their four children were born. Lisl was passionate about being a wife, mother, homemaker and grandmother, and was a lifelong source of unconditional love, acceptance and care. Lisl filled our many family homes with warmth, love and laughter in Calgary, Canberra Australia, Aylmer Quebec, and West and North Vancouver. She was refreshingly straight-to-the-point, a loyal friend and gracious host, and her easy manner and curiosity endeared her to all who met and knew her. Ever practical and creative, Lisl sewed clothing for herself and her children, tended vast vegetable gardens, prepared delicious food, and made bread six loaves at a time. A fun-loving and down-to-earth woman, Lisl was always willing to try new things and support Patrick’s passions and career. She enjoyed classical music, walks in the fresh air and hikes in the mountains, especially the Rockies. She relished raucous games of tennis with family and friends, recent trips to Maui and Europe, and reading three daily papers with her feet up. Lisl will be missed by all and remembered in the innumerable ways she graced our lives. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the North Shore Hospice Society so that others might enjoy the loving care that Lisl received in her final weeks (www.northshorehospice.ca). Our family is grateful for the fine care and kindness given to Lisl by her doctors, nurses, and caregivers. A Celebration of Life will take place at 2 pm on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at St. Catherine’s Anglican Church, 1058 Ridgewood Drive, North Vancouver.

KITCHING - Dolores

July 12, 1925 - March 12, 2013 Life will be very different now with the passing of our wonderful mother, grandmother and best friend. Family functions will be slightly less exciting, certainly quieter without her infectious laugh and comical anecdotes. She was so full of life, always a big smile and a positive attitude. “Lovely to be around” my friends would say and “terribly charming”. After raising 5 children (affectionately known as the brats) Mom went back into nursing at VGH for 10 years and then enjoyed travelling the world with Papa Ronnie. After Ron Kitching’s passing Mom moved from North Van to West Van. She enjoyed lawn bowling for 19 yrs, was the head volunteer gardener and competed in the BC Summer games. Dolores is survived by her daughters Andrea Bernstein, Michele Lawrence, Shelley Williams and her sons Cal Williams and David Kitching, her five grandchildren Ryan Clancey, Michael Williams, Jeffrey, Joanna and Pamela Bernstein and Rebecca Matthews with great granddaughter Basil. We would like to thank the staff at Hollyburn House Care Centre for their wonderful care and attention and to Dr. Knight for being the nicest doctor in the world. No service by request but a Wake will be held in her honor. We’ll love you forever, we’ll love you for always, forever and ever our Mommy you’ll be!

Mercedes S-Class covers up your odour offenses A biweekly round-up of automotive news, good, bad and just plain weird:

The S5 has been around since the 2009 model year, however it has gone through some changes for 2013. With this current revision to the styling, the S5 is closer to the S4 than it has ever been. Past generations boasted one of the best engines in the world with its 4.2-litre V-8 offering amazing power and torque. Due to economic restraints and to make the S5 more environmentally friendly, Audi has decided to switch to its proven

Details of all-new MercedesBenz S-Class leak out In the 40 odd years since it first took to the roads, Mercedes-Benz’s flagship executive sedan has been first in class for classy firsts. First car to feature satellite navigation, first to have airbags, first to have three-point seatbelts. With the latest generation due to bow as a 2014 model, anticipations are high for what M-B describes as “the best automobile in the world.” Not the fastest, not the most fuel-efficient, and not the most capable off-road: just the best premium four-door you can buy. What’s new for the SClass? Along with refreshed, yet traditionally conservative exterior styling, there’s an all-new interior design that’s more luxurious than ever. Mercedes has also done away with analog instruments, replacing the S-Class’s

THE Audi S5, pictured here in convertible trim, gets a refresh for 2013 but there are no major changes given that it was already a superb coupe. The S5 is available at Capilano Audi in the Northshore Auto Mall.

S5 brings speed and style

OVER the years, the Audi S5 has become the “favourite” vehicle of automotive journalists from around the world.

www.taylor motive.com

Many argue that the S5 is the best all-around driver’s car available at any price. It is a reasonably priced vehicle too, when you consider the level of performance and sophisticated styling it offers, though some people will question the meaning of “reasonable.” Since its introduction, Audi has made only minor

Behind The Wheel David Chao

changes to the S5, and there’s every reason to

understand why. From the beginning its demeanour was dignified and established, its styling glorious, and its character unquestionably “Audi.” At its heart was an engine that shared the same basic architecture as Audi’s supercar, the R8. Ultimately, the S5 was a great car from the start and simply didn’t need any significant alterations. If you’re looking for a fast, superb-looking, all-around well packaged sports coupe, the S5 is the benchmark. Design

Simple, sophisticated design still looks great From page 43

THE S5 possesses ageless styling — it still looks fresh even though it’s been out for a number of years and never had a massive makeover. Graceful curves and lines give it a look that is conservative yet gorgeous.

Bella!

Easy On Gas Easy on the eyes

3.0-litre supercharged V-6 engine. This is the same engine already found in the convertible version so it was just a matter of time before it found its way into the coupe as well. The DSG transmission, which wasn’t available with 4.2-litre models, is now standard for S5 owners who order automatics. On the appearance front, the S5 possesses ageless styling. Like the Porsche 911, even though it’s been around for a number of years, it still looks as fresh as when it first came out. The exterior is really tucked and buttoneddown. Along the shoulders, Audi designers have done this beautiful, graceful eyebrow arch over both wheels and all the other lines are in harmony with those themes. As a result, this S5 is conservative but gorgeous. The same can be said about the interior. Audi upgraded the cabin with more aluminium and piano-black accents to keep it upscale, but even before this refresh, it looked great. Its design is simple and sophisticated and the dials are big and bold. Like the exterior, the interior looks and feels like a well

tailored suit. Performance Aside from the engine and transmission swap, the next major change for the 2013 S5 has been its move to a electric power steering unit from a traditional hydraulic one. This has been a common practice among manufacturers these days as these electric systems are lighter and more efficient. The chief complaint from drivers is that they lose the feel of direct feedback from the road as some manufacturers are struggling to tune these systems. In the case of Audi however, they’ve done a great job of maintaining the connection between the driver and road with very little being sacrificed through this switch. In fact, in some ways this car feels quicker and sharper than the 2012 model. Is this system perfect? No, not quite. It does feel a little light overall in terms of the steering effort and perhaps a tad unnatural in comparison to the 2012 version, but ordering some options will bring up the Audi Drive Select feature that will allow the driver to pick a more dynamic steering effort or stiffer suspension (more on this later).

The engine works just as well in the S5 coupe as it has in the convertible and S4. This award-winning supercharged engine still provides a considerable amount of power and torque: 333 horsepower and 325 foot-pounds, without compromising fuel efficiency. Audi’s version of a double clutch gearbox, called the S tronic, makes this car run smoothly without a hint of hesitation. Whether you prefer to control the shifts using the steering wheel mounted paddles or allow the computer to manage them

are hearing are amplified in any way. Many characteristics of the S5 (steering feel, shift speed, ride feel, amount of exhaust sound) can be adjusted through the Audi Drive Select. This feature allows the driver to tailor the car to suit their specific preferences. For example, if you change the setting from comfort mode to dynamic mode, you will notice quite a shift in the overall feel of the car. By selecting the right combination of the steering, suspension, transmission shifts and exhaust sound,

in full automatic mode, the S5 shifts up and down faster than most cars on the market. With all of these systems working in harmony, the S5 is a real blast to drive. Environment New for 2013, Audi has added a sound amplifier which transmits some of the exhaust sound through a separate speaker into the cabin. While what you hear is actual engine noise, some argue that these systems create an artificial ambiance and are therefore a bit tacky. However, with the S5, unless you were told that such a system existed, you wouldn’t notice that the sounds you

you can tune the S5 to feel like a grand touring coupe or hyper-active pure sports car. Overall, the Audi S5 is a very easy car to drive. It’s a car you wouldn’t hesitate driving to and from the grocery store because it’s extremely usable and driveable. The glove compartment is large and the centre console and map pockets are a decent size. While the rear seats are tight, an adult could ride there for a short distance without complaint. The trunk space is amazingly large and the rear seats fold down making this car more practical than you expect from a coupe. This car finds amazing balance between “high performance” and “practical,” a fusion of features that you just don’t find in most sports cars. It’s a car you can use everyday, but put it in dynamic mode and stomp on the gas and it drives like a true sports car. That is why the S5 is nearly the perfect car. Features The 2013 Audi S5 has a starting price of $55,900 in standard trim with the Premium package with S tronic starting at $62,300. The standard equipment on the base model includes heated front seats, three-zone automatic air conditioning, concert radio, Bluetooth interface, panoramic sunroof, exterior mirrors with memory function, automatic dimming and electric heating, and, of course, Audi’s trademark Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Additional features, available as options or with the Premium package, include Audi Drive Select, adaptive cruise control, Bang & Olufsen sound system and a navigation package with a parking system, which includes a rear camera along with a DVD player and HD radio.

Audi follows trend and swaps power for efficiency From page 47 are 13.8 litres/100 kilometres in the city and 8.3 l/100 km of highway driving. Thumbs up To say this refresh for the S5 was sorely needed would be an exaggeration but it’s welcomed nonetheless. The S5 continues to be a world leader with its balance of performance, style and practicality. Thumbs down The growing trend of manufacturers opting to switch to smaller, more efficient engines has left

big-block fans with very few options. Customers who want a naturally aspirated V-8 will have to look elsewhere. Electric steering is good but not as natural as the hydraulic version from 2012 models. The bottom line The most balanced sports coupe that I will personally buy. Competitors BMW 3-series coupe/M3 The Audi S5 is interesting as it straddles between most of its competitors’ models. The S5 provides more See Competition page 49

THE Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is the souped-up version of the excellent C350 coupe. The C63 AMG starts at $67,700 and puts out 451 horsepower.

THE BMW M3 offers more pure power than the S5 but comes with a higher sticker price.

CADILLAC’S top-of-the-line coupe, the CTS-V, blasts 556 horsepower at a starting price of $72,600.

Competition superb in super coupe class

1172 West 3rd Street

(at Pemberton) North Vancouver

Cadillac CTS coupe/CTSV coupe The base CTS coupe features a 3.6-litre V-6 engine producing 318 h.p. and has a starting price of $42,860. The CTS-V coupe’s 6.2-litre V-8 cranks out 556 h.p. and has a starting price of $72,600. In the end, customers need to decide if the balance of performance and practicality offered by the Audi S5 is sufficient while lacking the allure of a more powerful, and more expensive V-8.

From page 48 performance than the base 3-series coupe but the M3 offers more pure horsepower. It’s the same story with its pricing as the 3-series coupe starts at $44,300, while the M3 starts at $71,700. Mercedes C350 coupe/C63 AMG The C350 coupe is a tough car to beat as well. The C350 coupe starts at $40,800 and gives 302 h.p. whereas the sportier C63 AMG starts at $67,700 and puts out 451 h.p.

Odyssey embraces its van-ness From page 43

speedometer and tachometer with twin high-resolution colour displays. However, it’s hard to be first with firsts as all auto manufacturers compete to cram even more technology into the car. While the new S-Class has seatbelts with airbags, so too does the lowly Ford Explorer. Well, you won’t find 14 massaging air cushions in your Ford, will you? No, and nor will you see anything like Mercedes’ new climate control system, which has the ability to detect offensive odours and either neutralize them using ionization or flip the switch of an active perfuming system. Finally, he who dealt it need no longer have smelt it. Honda says cheerio to new Odyssey Queen of the minivan segment, the Honda Odyssey is one of those vehicles that you can’t help but like. Just don’t tell anyone I said that — minivans are bad for streetcred. High trim level Odysseys are a bit like flying business class, with plenty of room, a cushy ride, DVD players for the kids and all kinds of powered goodies. Their backseats also go from being shiny and new to being semitoxic wastelands in the blink of an eye, as crumbs, french fries, raisins and cereal all get ground into the carpet. Not to mention grubby little paws dirtying up the upholstery. Perhaps recognizing the somewhat compostey nature of parental driving duties, Honda has teased next week’s New York Auto-show launch of their new minivan (the seven-seater MDX is also due soon) with a cheeky image: the word “Odyssey” spelt out in little round “O”s. Expect a few new clever features from Honda, but really, some sort of integrated vacuum system would be nice to see. Cadillac announces twinturbo V-6 With the new CTS due to launch sometime in the next week or so, Cadillac is poised to fan the flames of the excitement that sprang up around the launch of their sporty compact sedan, the ATS. Having won kudos for being more BMW-like than BMW’s best efforts, the ATS is a pretty convincing argument that Cadillac is doing a good job of changing their brand image from Goodfellas to gearheads. Forgive me for thinking it would be even better with a great big American V-8 stuffed under the hood. Right now, the CTS is available with either a decently powered 3.6-litre V-6, or a See Corvette page 53

fire-breathing supercharged V-8 in the V models. There’s quite a gap between them, and folks who want a little more zip without the horrible fuel-economy of the forced-induction cars have wandered over to Audi and BMW. Doubtless the new CTS will come with some pretty angular styling and, as is a usual Cadillac signature, a trapezoidal front grille like the Science World dome flattened out. Behind that grille? A base 2.0-litre turbo, the carry-over V-6, possibly eventually the super V-8, but also a twin-turbo V-6. GM is stating the new engine will produce 420 h.p. and, when bolted to a new eight-speed transmission, produce 0-100 kilometres per hour times in the mid-four-second range. That’s not far off the rear-drive-only V-Series, and better yet, the twin-turbo ‘6 should still return

Viper is even more brash than the ‘Vette. Neither one is the type to shy away from a showdown, so the ‘Vette and the Viper have been locked in pitched battle at tracks like Laguna Seca. So far, the story has skewed towards the venerable ZR1 ‘Vette, which insists on putting down seriously quick lap times, even on its way out the door. The Viper’s no shrinking violet though, and Dodge’s SRT division has just released a new Time Attack version that’s the fastest Viper yet. Will it be victorious in the latest match-up? Maybe, but what of the upcoming Stingray seventh-gen Corvette and its eventual highest-performance variants? Time to make some popcorn!

around 9.5 litres/100 kilometres. It all sounds great on paper, but this surely means the ATS-V won’t get a V-8. A shame that even Cadillac can’t be bothered making the big, simple V-8 sedan a winning sales combination. Corvette versus Viper: Shots fired in all-American rivalry Ordinarily, motoring magazines are quick to line GM’s Corvette up against the best that Europe has to offer. ‘Vette vs. 911; ‘Vette vs. Lamborghini; ‘Vette vs Audi R8. It makes for a great story — the best in American brute-force against high-tech German engineering or capricious Italian steel. More often than not, the plasticfantastic ‘Vette rises above its shoddy interior and redneck image and wipes the floor with its high-dollar foes. Fun stuff. But over at Dodge/Chrysler, the SRT department has been putting out some seriously kick-ass machinery, and their new
