Firefighters race to three emergencies

Crews handle sulphur fire on waterfront plus river and canyon rescue efforts Brent Richter

SOMETIMES, when it rains, it pours.

District of North Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services had a busy afternoon Wednesday, being called to an industrial fire on the waterfront and two wilderness rescues within 17 minutes. The first call came in at 4:10 p.m. as a reported fall from a bridge on a trail in Lynn Canyon. Three District of North Vancouver trucks raced to the scene while dispatch co-ordinated with rangers in the park. As crews were hunting for the injured hiker, another call came in at 4:19 p.m., this time for swimmers in danger in Capilano Canyon. District Fire and Rescue scrambled more vehicles to a scene, along with crews from West Vancouver Fire and Rescue. In that emergency, swimmers had become stranded on the far side of the Capilano River and were unable to safely swim back because of the fast flowing current. Backed up by West Van, District of North Van firefighters carried out a swift water rescue and collected the stranded and cold swimmers in an inflatable raft. Rangers, meanwhile, located the Lynn Canyon hiker, who suffered only a minor laceration. Just eight minutes after the Capilano call, another 9-1-1 call came in, this time from KinderMorgan’sindustrialsulphuroperationontheNorthVancouverwaterfront.With North Vancouver district crews already spread thin, more West Van units and North See Waterfront page 3

Nine-year old Trey Purcell was the only Canadian travelling to North Carolina with his parents to receive the drug therapy he needs to battle his MPS II, or Hunter Syndrome. But as of July 22, he will get his 23rd dose of the therapy at B.C. Children’s Hospital. Hunter Syndrome, primarily found in boys, is caused when sugar chains in the body are not properly broken down due to a missing enzyme. The fragmented chains progressively cause damage in the body. Symptoms do not show until at least two years of age and can include a large head (hydrocephalus), enlarged tongue and organs, See Drug page 3

and hearing loss, to name a few. For Trey’s mother Deb Purcell, moving the treatment to Vancouver was a big relief. “It’s a lot less stress logistically,” said Purcell, who together with her husband has had to take time off work for Trey’s treatment, resulting in some financial burden. Purcell, who has two other children, said the biggest issue was getting the replacement drugs in the first place. The family faced an uphill battle to get Trey’s very first treatment, which he received in February 2007. “At least now we’re getting drugs,” she said. “But this has put a huge strain on our entire family.” Trey receives an intravenous enzyme replacement therapy fourhoursaweekathome,which is administered by Purcell. The treatment stops the progressive disease in the body, said Purcell, but it can’t cross the blood brain barrier and therefore cannot halt the disease in the brain. But with the phase I/II drug trial, which Trey started in October 2011, the enzyme is administered differently. THE Purcell family, from left Ryan, Sadie (on lap), Trey, Deb and “They put it into the central of 2011. nervous system and brain,” said “We would have been en route to that instead of a Purcell. Although Trey hasn’t had any noticeable side effects kid who is telling me he wants a girlfriend and deciding with the drug, there are risks. For the treatment, Trey has what sports he wants to play in the fall,” said Purcell. The phase I/II trial was to ensure the safety of to be put under general anesthetic and receives a lumbar puncture, which is a needle that is injected into the base the drug and was only at two trial sites, one through the University of North Carolina and the other at of the spine. But for Purcell, the risk is worth it. “If he hadn’t been getting this he would have been Birmingham Children’s hospital in the UK. Since the drug has been deemed safe, a phase II/III trial will moving towards death,” said Purcell. Purcell said without the drugs, Trey would have begin in September. Trey will not be a part of the second gradually lost skills, such as language, and eventually trial, but will remain on an extension study of the phase I/II trial. would have suffered seizures and been unable to eat.

‘Gangsta’ girls warned

A teen wandering Park Royal Shopping Centre brandishing a fake firearm is lucky to be getting off with a stern warning from police.

West Vancouver Police were called to the south mall on the evening of July 5 after mall security reported a teenager with a pistol tucked into the waistband of her pants. Officers found the suspect and safely retrieved a pellet gun. Under questioning, the 13-year-old girl told police she was carrying the fake gun because she wanted to look like “a thug.” An older sibling purchased the pistol for the wannabegangster before she took to the mean streets of Canada’s wealthiest community. It turned out a close friend of the teen was also packing heat, albeit fake, which was also seized by police and destroyed. Following the incident, police issued a warning they will treat reports of anyone carrying a gun in public as a threat. Results can range from criminal charges to the possibility of police unholstering their real weapons, putting both officers and the public at risk. Police are urging parents to talk to their kids about the dangers of sporting replica guns in public. — Brent Richter

Waterfront blaze doused From page 1 Vancouver City Fire Department trucks immediately responded to extinguish the six-foot by 10-foot blaze within an hour. The cause of the fire is under investigation. No harmful sulphur dioxide gas was detected as a result of the fire, according to Kinder Morgan. Crews from all three fire departments rely on a system that uses risk assessment and statistical analysis to strategically place firefighting resources so no area is left unprotected while multiple emergencies take place. “It looks at the whole picture. It’s a program that’s been scientifically developed and it’s constantly updating statistics,” said Jim Bonneville, District of North Vancouver’s assistant fire chief.

Fire ants invade North Shore

TWO more locations with fire ant infestations have been discovered on the North Shore this summer, marking a continued invasion of the aggressive insect.

built,” he said. Port Metro Vancouver is planning to complete the project in seven phases, including moving existing utilities infrastructure, digging down and then rebuilding a new series of retaining walls at two levels, and moving the existing road north to make way for more rail lines on the industrial land. Residents on the 500 and 600 blocks of East First Street, meanwhile, have lost access to the lane on the south side of their properties as

Robert Higgins, a fire ant expert and professor of biological sciences at Thompson Rivers University, says European fire ants have been found in at least two more spots in the District of North Vancouver this year, although he won’t give specific locations. Higgins said the discovery isn’t a surprise. “We were yet to really comprehensively get a sense of just how broadly distributed they are,” he said. Higgins first discovered the harmful pests on a road allowance near Deep Cove last summer. Fire ants are an aggressive invasive species that can create numerous nests in a single yard. Unlike other species of ants, fire ants will bite and sting repeatedly and in mass numbers, sometimes causing enough pain to require medical attention. The introduced species has likely been in the Lower Mainland for the past 10 or 15 years, but has gained notoriety only recently as numbers have grown. “We haven’t had very much success in controlling the ants,” said Higgins. “We’re still in the process, the relatively early days of recognizing the invasion and getting a grasp on just how extensive it is.” Residents can help prevent the spread of the ants, Higgins said, by being cautious about the plants they buy. “If they see any signs of ants associated with the soil in the pots, they should not bring it onto their property.” Higgins recommended taking a ‘no ants on plants’ type of philosophy. He said it can be difficult to identify which species of ants are invasive, but added any ant that is happy in a potted plant, could be leaning that way. “There is a high probability that it is the type of ant that can be invasive,” said Higgins. “They love that type of disturbed, marginal habitat.” The ants appear less aggressive when there are only one or two nests in a yard, Higgins said, but once the nests start multiplying and spreading, they get more aggressive.

Avery share a family moment in the summer Purcell said Trey has been taking the treatments in stride, including having the general anesthetic. “He handles it a lot better than a lot of other kids,” she said. “Trey puts the mask on himself.” Hunter Syndrome is extremely rare and according to the MPS Society only affects 1 in 100,000 to 1 in 150,000 males. There is no cure, but Purcell has advice for any family with a child who has been diagnosed with a rare disease. “You are your child’s best advocate,” she said. “It’s having confidence that you know what’s best for your child.”

Construction noise a neighbourhood pain Brent Richter

CONSTRUCTION on the massive Low Level Road project, as blearyeyed neighbours can tell you, is well underway. The racket from the machinery echoing off the Richardson grain terminal has been “obnoxiously loud,” at all hours, according to First Street resident Amanda Nichol. The port’s contractor has been given the OK by the City of North Vancouver to work from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. until Aug. 2, in order to move utilities across East Esplanade, drawing complaints from Alder Street and St. Patricks Avenue residents. “We’ve asked the city in the interest of the business and traffic impacts in the day to the community. The best time to do this work is in the evening. Then, it doesn’t impact the businesses and it doesn’t impact the traffic,” said Justin Pedley, the port’s director of trade areas. “However, the negative is, it does impact some of the residents, so it is a trade-off but we feel the best time to do it is between 5 p.m. and 1 a.m.” Thankfully, the worst will soon be over as that portion of the work is nearly done and crews will be moving west into the business district, Pedley added. “We’rehopefulthatthenoiseandinconvenience we’ve caused to that community will be reduced significantly over the next little while. But it’s necessary work that has to be done and it has to be done first before the rest of the road can be

SOME roads are temporarily construction of Low Level Road.



B&B Heavy Civil Construction works on the first tier of the new retaining wall. While the Low Level Road expansion has been a “constant headache” for the beleaguered Moodyville residents, contending with the retaining wall work and B&B have been surprisingly low stress, according to First Street resident Michael Binkley. Binkley said work crews have been keeping the lane tidy and they’re usually off the work site by 4 p.m. Pedley expects that work to be done by the end of July and nearly identical work on Alder Street is set to begin shortly. Traffic on Low Level Road and the surrounding area has experienced some minor inconvenience as contractors manoeuvre and place heavy equipment, but that has only amounted to brief lane closures, Pedley said. Port Metro Vancouver has committed to keeping Low Level Road open throughout the project, other

‘No ants on plants’ is a good rule From page 3

“They very rapidly swarm from their nests and start stinging” anyone standing or kneeling in the backyard, he said. European fire ants can have numerous colonies in one yard because they recognize it as ideal habitat, sending flying ants only a short distance away, or not at all. Higgins said that is

common in invasive species. “They monopolize these areas,” he said. “You get high nest densities, so with the European fire ant, you can get four to five nests in a single square metre.” Higgins said that although there are signs up in a city park in Richmond, there are no signs on the North Shore as the ants have only been found on private properties to date.

than for two weekends in the fall and winter when the port will shut the road down to install beams that support new overpasses, which will replace the existing at-grade crossings onto port land. The Low Level Road project won approval from City of North Vancouver council last year and has been marred by controversy as expansion of the industrial land creates conflicts with the adjacent residential neighbourhood.

VIEWPOINT Published by North Shore News a division of LMP Publication Limited Partnership, 100-126 East 15th Street, North Vancouver, B.C. V7L 2P9. Doug Foot, publisher. Canadian publications mail sales product agreement No. 40010186.

Off the tracks I

N the wake of the terrible tragedy following a train derailment and explosion in Lac Megantic, Quebec last weekend, there are so far many more questions than answers. Safety officials are just beginning to piece together exactly what happened sometime before 1 a.m. last Saturday, sending an inferno through the small Quebec community. Their findings may shed light on uncomfortable issues. The small town has suffered terrible losses, including 24 people killed and 36 missing. But it is not the only community to face the issue of dangerous goods transported by rail. Our country was built on rail and it still plays an essential role in shipping many commodities. There are few communities, including here, where potentially dangerous goods — chlorine, acids and other industrial

chemicals — aren’t shipped by rail. Residents frequently don’t even know what might be rolling past nearby. Last week’s tragedy should give us all pause. In recent days there have been questions raised about problems that had previously been identified in transport of such goods. There have been questions about who follows up to make sure rules are being followed and if the rules are stringent enough. There are questions about why stronger railcars aren’t being used, why one employee was running the train and why failsafes weren’t in place on the line. In the wake of the disaster, the federal transport minister has said we will learn from what happened and take action. A full review of how dangerous goods are transported would be a good starting point.


Citizens have voice in decisions

Dear Editor: While there are many regrettable changes to Edgemont Village to be criticized and mourned, the takeover of SuperValu by Thrifty Foods is one that we should welcome. For the rest, we have several forthcoming and important opportunities to participate in the future planning of our village. When I returned to North Vancouver after living in Victoria for nine years, one of the things I missed most was Thrifty Foods. In taking over the local SuperValu, Thrifty Foods is making it possible for current employees to stay on. I sincerely hope most will, for they are my friends too. In many ways, it’s possibly too late to staunch

the demise of the character of Edgemont Village. Once our district allowed for the construction of monolithic houses in place of the original bungalows or smaller family homes in the Edgemont area, it was sadly inevitable that the character of the rest of the village would change. It is ironic that when an area like ours becomes so popular because of its unique character, the profit seekers quickly move in. Some of the newcomers who want the megavillas also want the boutique chain stores. In these circumstances it’s difficult for the independent shops — owned and operated by local residents who have been the backbone of this community for the past 60 plus years — to survive.

Those of us who care need to communicate our concerns to our developer-friendly district council, or join the various committees and local community organizations that seek a voice in local redevelopment. All of us have a voice. We have a municipal vote. We can be informed citizens and elect representatives who share our vision. Above all, we have the prerogative as consumers. We can support and patronize our local independent merchants in Edgemont Village. Elizabeth McLenehan North Vancouver

Parks planting priority misses mark on maintenance

Dear Editor: When I see pictures of streets with vegetation growing out of the sidewalks and curbs, I think of the economic troubles of the rust belt in the USA. Ironically, I live in the highest priced area in the District of North Vancouver — Edgemont Village — and yet I get to see the same thing. The empty lot (former gas station) on Woodbine and Queens has grass and plants growing out of the light posts, and the curbs have vegetation growing knee high and rising. This location also seems to be a dumping ground for unwanted furniture.


I called the district and was informed that my concerns were not a priority. The parks department is planting annuals now and it is a splendid display, surely I must agree that this takes priority?! Well I don’t agree. Perhaps the parks department should spend money on maintaining what we have rather than spending more on new plantings! I suggested to the parks department employee that perhaps if herbicide spraying had not been banned then the resources would be available to do both. (I was employed in my university summer

years in Edmonton and was on their parks weed and mosquito department. We would start spraying at 4 a.m. until about 6 a.m.) Even though government scientists (whom we entrust with making sure the food, water and other goods we use are safe) have said the herbicides banned by district council are safe, this council decided it knows better and banned them anyway. I am not pleased my $9,300 property tax bill does not get me well maintained streets and boulevards. Ted Shandro North Vancouver

Drivers should buy offsets

Dear Editor: In response to the June 30 North Shore News article “Cars still favoured by majority of local commuters,” I have a suggestion for those of us who drive: consider purchasing carbon offsets once a year to reduce your carbon footprint. For example, if you drive 20,000 kilometres per year, that produces five tonnes of greenhouse gases. A small, $81 investment in a wind, solar or other renewable energy project will offset these emissions. I see this as an investment in my future, just like retirement savings or an RESP for my daughter. We can no longer skirt responsibility for global warming: if you drive, it is your responsibility to offset. There are many suppliers of offsets, but my research showed that the most reputable supplier is J. P. Morgan (climatecare. org). They provide an online calculator to quickly determine how many offsets you require. Mark Daly North Vancouver

Stay-at-home young voters skewed the polls

ONE of the country’s top polling firms has investigated how it (and so many others) got the B.C. election forecast so wrong and has concluded one factor looms larger than any other: the low turnout of young people casting ballots.

Angus Reid Public Opinion re-examined all its polling and its methodology and concluded that, more than anything else, the fact young people don’t vote in nearly as large numbers as older people skewed a series of polls (by Reid and other polling firms) that gave the false impression of what expect on election day. Forget theories about last minute vote-switching or general low turnout on voting day, pollster Angus Reid says in a five-page summary of his firm’s internal investigation. Instead he found “that almost all of the discrepancy with our poll boiled down to one issue: low turnout among young voters.”

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

Young voters are defined as being under the age of 35. They make up roughly 30 per cent of the population, but only about 15 per cent of those who actually come out and vote. Reid’s analysis concluded that, had he made an appropriate adjustment to better reflect the makeup of those who actually vote, his last poll would have showed a three per cent lead for the NDP (in other words, a statistical dead heat given the margin of error). He rightly notes that publishing such a finding a week before voting day may well have changed the media

reporting on the campaign narrative, and predictions of an NDP landslide would have been replaced with a too-close-to-call theme in news coverage. Ironically, the series of polls by Reid and others (notably Ipsos-Reid) that misleadingly showed the B.C. Liberals far, far behind the NDP for the entire campaign may have helped Christy Clark’s campaign “by energizing her base to get out and vote in order to beat back, as W.A.C. Bennett famously called them in 1972, the ‘socialist hordes,’” Reid writes in his analysis. I think there is considerable truth in that conclusion. Senior NDP officials and candidates have told me they ran into a significant “fear factor” on the doorstep among many voters as the campaign wound down. “They weren’t happy with the Liberals, but they were afraid of us,” one top party official told me. “We remain vulnerable on that point and probably always will be vulnerable.” The so-called fear factor didn’t seem to exist to the

same degree among young people, who tend to support the NDP in greater numbers than older voters. But that fact became immaterial on Election Day, as those young voters simply stayed home rather than vote. Reid, who has a long track record of accurate election polling, says he will change his firm’s polling methodology in the wake of the problems exposed by the recent election. Young people will have to be “weighted” in the polling sample that is proportional to actual voters rather than the general population. Apparently, this is a problem that is unique to B.C. Other jurisdictions don’t seem to have the same level of disinterest in young people when it comes to voting. As a political journalist, I’ve relied on Reid’s polls since the mid-80s for providing both an accurate snapshot of public opinion and a context on which to base political analysis. With the notable exception of the May 14th election, he’s always been right. When he and others were

proven to be so wrong on election night, the media also wore the fallout from the error. In his analysis, Reid says he considered pulling out of polling altogether, which would have significant implications for political journalism. However, Reid has concluded that since corporations, special interest groups and political parties are still very much involved in polling (in the last U.S. election more than $100 million was spent on private polling by the various parties) it is important that non-partisan companies such as his continue their own polling.

“A strong democracy needs accurate and independent public opinion research to help balance the discipline of power and add context to public debates,” Reid writes. People may not like public opinion polling (particularly when their findings clash with their own views) but it is an important part of our democratic process. It’s good to know that pollsters like Reid are going to make changes to ensure their findings are more accurate in the future.

One guy’s mantra for success

THAT Christ guy sure seemed to be a pretty righteous dude and one who deserves to be emulated, but sometimes as a parent I find it a little hard to decide What Would Jesus Do when the question is something like ‘Should I let my toddler taste my beer?’

Laugh All You Want

Following the WWJD guidebook seems a bit tricky considering it was written two millennia ago, years before parents were forced to decide when to let their kids use the iPhone. Though I’m not deeply religious, I do try to loosely follow the kindness, inclusiveness and tolerance Jesus stuff. But particularly since my kids were born, I’ve added a new layer that is my ultimate day-to-day mantra: WWMWWMTD? Now I don’t want you thinking that I’ve always been a brainless man, making every decision based on the principal of What Would My Wife Want Me To Do. Before we had kids I would proudly and courageously make two, maybe even three solo decisions per week. Server: What can I get you? My wife: We’ll share the large garden salad. Me: Would you be able to split that up for us? And for

mine I’ll add some potatoes — French-fried style please — some cheese curds and a bit of hot gravy. Oh, and can you hold the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, dressing and anything else that isn’t coloured brown? Thanks. My wife: Zut alors. Those of you who are well cultured will have noticed something in the above exchange: I’m a pig. No, wait, not that part. This part: my wife speaks French. That, in fact, is just one small part of the elaborate, well thought out, extremely comprehensive parenting plan she put in place for raising kids. Now that we have two beautiful boys, the plan is in full swing. She only speaks French to them so that they’ll grow up bilingual. She only feeds organic fruits and vegetables to them so that they’ll grow up healthy and

pretentious. She limits them to half an hour of TV time a day maximum — usually it’s zero minutes a day — so that they’ll grow up unaware of Snooki. And speaking of orange people, she makes them wear a hat and sunglasses at all times outside so that their pasty Nordic noses will stay melanoma free. My parenting philosophy? Let’s just say it’s not so fully formed. Actually, once I got past don’t hurt anyone else too badly and try not to get yourself killed, there wasn’t much left except no barebum toots. Those are just dangerous. So basically now whenever a parenting decision arises I turn off my own brain — and let’s be honest, it was probably just thinking about boobs and baseball anyway — and flick on the WWMWWMTD switch. This very issue came up on a recent episode in Jerry Seinfeld’s web project, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Jerry was out with David Letterman and the two of them, both now dads, got talking about parenting philosophy. Dave asked Jerry what he would do if his kid asked to skip baseball practice after hurting his hand while mucking around. “I support whatever position my wife takes. That’s what I’d do,” said Jerry. “Because she knows more

about parenting than you?” asked Dave. “Here’s the thing,” said Jerry. “It doesn’t matter what you do, but why have a fight with your wife?” That’s a good lesson in family values right there. Jerry, as is his wont, took it a little too far though. “I kind of look at my family now and I think, ‘Well, in 60 years everyone is dead here. So. . .” And, while glancing around for the waitress, came Dave’s great answer: “Could I have the cheque please?” I’m not quite as fatalistic as Jerry but I get where he’s coming from. One of us in my parental unit has very specific expectations, rules and goals. The other is me. So I might as well adopt those expectations and goals, even if I sometimes feel like Zut Alors doing it. “Sure honey, let’s take him to the naturopath to check out that rash. We don’t need sterile old western medicine and their ‘drugs’ that are covered by my ‘health plan’ when we can pay a pretty lady $200 for some cod poop pills that will solve the problem ‘from within.’” “Yes baby, you’re right. Even though he is eight months old we should stop the stroller every three steps and put those sunglasses back on his face. I’m sure he’ll learn his lesson any minute

INQUIRING REPORTER CELL phones have almost become an extension of us. We tuck them into our pockets, briefcases or purses without a second thought. Nowadays it’s next to impossible to walk down a street and not see someone chatting away on their phone or dodging street posts as they text. A recent study shows that nearly two thirds of British Columbians own a smartphone and are using it an average of about two hours a day. Most owners check their phone hourly. Eighteen per cent admitted they are addicted to their devices. But are people really hooked?

Are you addicted to your cell phone?

“Yes. It has everything I need. It’s fantastic.”

“Most definitely. It’s easy to stay in contact with people.”

“No, I just make calls.”

“No. I always have it but I hardly ever use it.”

“I wouldn’t use the word addicted, but I would say I’m very dependent on it.”

DANCE has almost always been a part of Suragini Ravindran’s life. It started 15 years ago in Mumbai, India, when she needed a break from the rigors of school. “Basically like every young teenager when you’re on break and you feel like you’ve just given a very, very hectic schedule of exams,” says Ravindran. “And you realize ‘Man I really have to get fit and get back into shape’ and what better way than dancing?” She says the first name that came to mind was Shiamak and she’s been with them ever since. Davar Shiamak has been called the “Guru of Contemporary Dance” in India and has schools and dance teams all over the world. Ravindran, who came to Canada in 2008 and lives in North Vancouver, has gone from a young dancer to an established choreographer. She is one of three dancers and choreographers from the Shiamak Vancouver dance team involved in Bollywood Wedding, an outdoor interactive dance and theatre event produced by South Asian Arts and taking place at this year’s Pacific National Exhibition from July 17 to July 28. “Shiamak style” as it is known, combines various



Western styles of dance with traditional Indian style. The Vancouver dance team has worked with South Asian Arts before on various events, including the Times of India Filmfare Awards that took place earlier this year in Vancouver. “We were amazed to see how excited people were to have Bollywood in Vancouver,” Ravindran says. This is the first time, however, the dance team has worked on Bollywood Wedding and it was a unique experience for them. “It’s something we’ve never done before,” says Ravindran. “We always do festivals and stage productions. This was more of a musical, it was nice to interact with the actors.” Bollywood Wedding is about the arranged engagement and marriage of two young Indians and all the comedic drama that arises on the big day. “It’s basically taking people through the process of what a Bollywood wedding has, you know the customs, and the boy’s family meets the girl’s family and in between that everything is about celebration,” says Ravindran. “Every stage of the wedding is a celebration event.” “As they say in India ‘it’s not about the bride and groom being married, but the unity of families and traditional values.’ It has a very ethnic feel to it.” The production is playing in the Italian Gardens at the PNE grounds where the audience or ‘guests’ will move from one part of the garden to another, taking in various events from the engagement to the wedding ceremony. “It’s actually very beautiful,” says Ravindran. “And it’s amazing because dancers are always used to having

a platform or a stage set up, but it’s nice because it just has nature. You can feel the softness of the grass.” The open, outdoor and ever changing space also presented the biggest challenge for the choreographers. “There was not one constant space to work in,” says Ravindran. “But that’s what makes it more dazzling and exciting for dancers is that you have to make do with the space given to you and yet not have to compromise on the choreography.” The dancers wear elaborate costumes that are specially designed by Shiamak to be used as props throughout the performance, says Ravindran. “The costumes are heavy, especially the skirts that are worn.” She says the dancers are used to wearing shoes, but in Bollywood Wedding some numbers required them to be barefoot. “We have to make sure that the dancers are going to work hard. I think everyone was OK with it.” There are 16 dancers involved in the rehearsal process, but only between eight to 12 dancers will be used in the production on a rotating basis. The choreographers have been constantly tweaking the numbers, reworking partners or groupings and making adjustments according to the mood or feel of the song, says Ravindran. “For us, sometimes we do one song and it takes us two weeks to plan it,” she said. “And sometimes we do three songs and it may just take you five or six hours.”

Model Operas fed propaganda machine

Pointed political lessons made during China’s Cultural Revolution

FOR a decade they were as inescapable as Alcatraz, as pervasive as religion and opiates combined.

ZHANG Yaxin, chief photographer of Chinese Communist Party leaders during the Cultural Revolution, devoted eight years of his life from 1969–1976 documenting government-sanctioned Model Opera productions.

Chinese model operas were the sole entertainment outlet for a nation of 800,000,000. The six operas and two ballets were intended to dramatize the values prized by Chairman Mao while instructing and inspiring the country in the ways of communism. Soldiers soared and women wielded pistols while standing aside a flag bearing the hammer and sickle, and at those moments of rigid perfection, a camera flashed. Former newspaper photographer Zhang Yaxin was assigned the task of photographing the operas, capturing the painted vistas and the stony stoicism of stern soldiers wearing makeup in Tammy Faye Bakker quantities. Yaxin’s work is currently being exhibited at Presentation House Gallery in North Vancouver, just the second Canadian gallery to show Yaxin’s photos. The pictures are strongly militaristic. Under a moonlit sky two women dance, their bodies flawless vessels from their clutched red ribbons to their pointed toes. But one woman is holding a gun. It’s that curious juxtaposition that intrigued curator Helga Pakasaar. “Every aspect of those operas was related to Mao’s ideas around class struggle, the way women are represented.

Grown Ups 2 anything but

■ Grown Ups 2. Directed by Dennis Dugan. Starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade and Kevin James. Rating: 5 (out of 10)

Julie Crawford Contributing Writer

KEEPING in mind that Adam Sandler movies have to be graded on a curve, this one’s pretty good. And by that I mean that the film has no message at all and minimal plot. But at least we are spared the sight of Adam Sandler in a dress. The film is one long, star-studded fart joke. Sorry, make that one long “burpsnart” joke: filmmakers, running low on flatulence material, decided to combine the burp-sneeze-fart into one specialized movement for your repeated enjoyment. We are less than a minute into the film when we get the first joke featuring bodily fluids, when a deer rears up and pees on a terrified family. Each man has a mini-crisis, the better to fill in the holes between burpsnarts. Lenny (Sandler) and his wife (Salma Hayek) talk about adding to their family; Eric (Kevin James) prefers the company of his mother (remember Mary Tyler Moore’s Georgia Engel?) to that of his wife (Maria Bello); Marcus (David Spade) discovers he has a long-lost, pathological son (Vancouver’s Alexander Ludwig); Kurt (Chris Rock) makes his wife (Maya Rudolph) feel bad for forgetting their 20th anniversary. They live in an idyllic little town where the ultra-rich and trailer-park coexist peaceably. The boys are all employed to one degree or another but seem to have nothing better to do than hang out at Kmart all day, lamenting their lost youth. “It’s been many, many years since we did something crazy,” observes one. Crazy never quite happens, but a trip to the local watering hole sparks a turf war with frat boys headed by Taylor Lautner, showing off his impressive martial arts skills. “No one’s afraid of a black guy anymore: damn you, Obama!” says Kurt. Say what you will about Sandler, but he’s a loyal fellow. This is the eighth film directed by Dennis Dugan. He employs the same actors time and time again: Allen Covert has been in some 23 Sandler productions, Jonathan Loughran is at 17, and Peter Dante is the veteran of some 15 films; the list goes on.

titillating enough? How about star spawn (Paulina Gretzky, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Oliver Hudson) and at least four other people with the last name Sandler? The film is rated PG 13, and there are plenty of teachable moments for children: proper food orifices, for instance (Nick Swardson putting Cheetos up his nose then eating them is bad; ditto the principal eating his belly-button lint). Little girls learn that they’d better save up for surgery: whomever designed the costumes ensured that Hayek’s breasts do most of the acting for her. I can’t tell you much about the plot, beyond that, as my notes read something like this: “Boob joke, poop joke, butt jokes, pepper-sprays himself in the eyes, poo in department store toilet, testicles.” In other words, it’s packed with moronic fun tailor-made for Sandler fans.

Revue takes a cruise down memory lane

■ Cruisin’ with the Boomers, July 16-27 at 7:30 p.m., The Revue Stage on Granville Island, Vancouver. Tickets: $39 (July 16 preview: $29), available at vancouvertix. com or 604-629-8849.

Christine Lyon

THE dressing room backstage contains enough fashion relics from bygone decades to stock a trendy thrift store. There’s bellbottoms, ruffle-trimmed shirts, feather boas, sunglasses with impossibly round frames and other fads popularized by classic pop-rock musicians. Over the course of one evening, North Vancouver resident Joani Bye goes through about a dozen costumes, from a figurehugging gold lamée gown à la Marilyn Monroe to Janis Joplin’s signature fringe and feathers. It’s all part of her role in Cruisin’ with the Boomers, a musical revue featuring hit songs from the 1960s and ’70s. Bye provides vocals, guitar and also does vocal arrangements for the six-member ensemble,

which invites audiences to take a cruise down memory lane. “It’s a total musical ride,” Bye says of the theatrical performance, which has 10 show dates scheduled between July 16 and 27 at the Granville Island Revue Stage. “Every boomer that goes will be able to sing along with every word.” That’s not to say only the baby boom generation will enjoy the act. Bye’s 21-yearold daughter has watched the show “and she knew every song in it.” “Kids are listening to the music that I listened to, amazingly,” Bye says. “It appeals to everybody.” Presented by Jupiter Productions, the evening’s set lineup covers many different genres and includes chart toppers by David Bowie, The Beatles, Carole King, Bob Dylan, The Doors, The Righteous Brothers, BB King, Elton John, as well as disco, Motown and Woodstock medleys. It’s music that transports Bye back to her youth. “The protest songs that were speaking to the politics of the day, I always loved those,” she says before crooning a few words from See Bye page 24

The Bill also proposes that the province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make nonlawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

Avoid feeling sluggish during summer’s dog days

Summer’s dog days are known for making people feel sluggish. Long spells of hot and humid weather can make summer feel like an eternity.

Be careful with caffeine. Caffeine has both its advocates and detractors. However, no one can argue caffeine’s ability to provide a boost when needed. Those who drink caffeinated beverages in moderation can really benefit from the boost it provides. On

Caffeine can also be dehydrating, which is not healthy when hot, humid weather already takes its toll on the body. Keep this in mind and don’t overdo caffeine consumption.

When relying on caffeine for that extra pick-me-up during summer’s dog days, it’s important to carefully moderate caffeine consumption. Caffeine consumption in late afternoon or in the evening can actually have the adverse effect many people hope to get from caffeine. Because caffeine

Alter eating habits. Perhaps nothing can be more draining on a hot summer day than a big meal. Large meals on sizzling summer days rob people of energy and often lead to feelings of discomfort. But this doesn’t mean people should avoid eating as the summer temperatures heat up. Rather, altering existing eating habits can provide more energy and might even lead to some weight loss. Instead of three meals per day, eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day. Healthy snacking during the day can help boost metabolism and maintain energy levels regardless of how hot it might be outside. Eat light meals every 3 to 4 hours, and avoid foods that are heavy and lead to feelings of lethargy. Look for foods high in fiber. Fiber can do a great deal for people looking to get more

Bye and Kidder grew up in musical families

From page 20

“Ohio” by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. “Music is pretty visceral, it brings back memories for most people.” For Bye, hearing the R&B song “O-o-h Child” will forever remind her of the day she got dumped by her junior high boyfriend. Between songs, the performers will talk about significant historical events — such as the Vietnam War — and discuss how these events influenced the musical landscape of the day. Born and raised on the North Shore, Bye is the youngest of three musical siblings. Together they formed The Bye Sisters and had a regular spot on a TV variety show in the early ’70s. Over the years, Bye has worked with a number of bands doing live performances, she’s spent time in the studio

recording commercial jingles, and she can be heard in the background on tracks by Bon Jovi, Cher, David Bowie and INXS. Her fellow Cruisin’ with the Boomers castmates include established West Coast musicians Dave Pickell (musical director, keyboards, guitar, harmonica), Oliver Conway (vocals, guitar, harmonica, sound design), Peter Padden (drums, percussion, vocals), Tim Porter (guitar, vocals) and West Vancouver’s Linda Kidder (vocals, bass, drums). Kidder also grew up in a musical family. In high school, she started playing drums in her parents’ Vancouver-based show band and has been working in the industry ever since. She has released four CDs, recorded commercial jingles and has toured with Canadian artists Gary Fjellgaard and k.d. lang. She is set to perform at Party at the Pier in North Vancouver with her musical duo Tangent this Sunday at 11 a.m.

The music that Cruisin’ with the Boomers revisits reminds Kidder of her carefree teenage years. “Hanging around the park with my friends, going out on Friday nights,” she says. “Or you lay in the living room in the dark at your girlfriend’s house listening to The Beatles. That’s what we used to do.” She expects the Granville Island shows will attract a wide demographic and are definitely “not just for boomers.” “But boomers get the biggest bang for their buck, I believe, because of all the memories that these songs bring back.” Kidder says the “fun” and “feel-good” musical revue commands a standing ovation after every performance. “And then these people that we’ve never met come out at the end and hug us when we’re standing out saying goodbye to everybody,” she says. “I think it’s just because we’ve made them happy and taken them back to a really good time in their lives.”

Hugo Boss sets sail in Vancouver Layne Christensen

“ARE you ready to grind?”

I’d blush in any other situation, but when it’s British skipper Alex Thomson — a major talent in international yacht racing — who’s asking, I’m happy to oblige. At the winch of a 60-foot monohull racing yacht, I’m grinding away to help Thomson and his crew pull in and let out sails as we tack and jibe our way through a sun-splashed afternoon in Burrard Inlet. The charismatic 38-year-old with tousled blond hair and a gap-toothed grin is in Vancouver this week with his eight-tonne carbon fibre yacht courtesy of fashion house Hugo Boss, his sponsor

Race yacht modern, elegant like a finely tailored suit

for the past decade. Fresh off his third-place finish in the prestigious Vendée Globe — a round-the-world single-handed yacht race held once every four years — Thomson is spending the summer on a customer engagement tour, charming media and VIPs aboard his black and white boat. It’s the first time for the race yacht on the West Coast of North America. The Imoca 60’s tour started in Rio de Janeiro in February. She will set sail Sunday for Seattle and wind her way down to San Francisco, host city for the America’s Cup.

Thomson is a yacht-racing phenom who at 25 became the youngest ever skipper to win a roundthe-world race. In 2009, he made waves when he walked the keel of his race yacht, dressed suavely in a Hugo Boss suit. Critics doubted the stunt’s authenticity and claimed his James Bond-worthy feat was a Photoshop fake. “That pissed me off,” says Thomson, chatting amiably about his daredevil streak. He made sure Take 2 of the keel walk, in 2011, was captured on video, with slight modifications: a sewn-on suit (buttons blew off hitting the water the first time) and boarding the keel by jet ski instead of Zodiac (“safer,” he says). During its visit, the Hugo Boss is moored at North Vancouver’s Mosquito Creek Marina.

Obakki fuses fashion and philanthropy

Clothing designs help bring water to Africa Christine Lyon

TREANA Peake first set foot on the dry, cracked earth of Penlang, South Sudan during troubled times. The landlocked village was parched, the locals were forced to roam for water, and territorial clashes frequently erupted in the process. “Then we brought them water,” says Peake, founder of the Obakki Foundation, which focuses on drilling water wells and providing education in Africa. “And when I went back to visit, it was a thriving agricultural community.” When she returned to Penlang, Peake brought along art supplies — something many rural South Sudanese had never seen before. The moment she set out a roll of paper and paints, the villagers excitedly grabbed brushes and started to express visually how access to clean water had changed their lives, Peake recalls. “After they were done, after the entire page was full and exploding with colour, they jumped up and started to do this celebration dance around it.” That moment sticks out for Peake as a reminder to stop and celebrate accomplishments. And her foundation has had plenty of reasons to celebrate. The non-profit, which is the philanthropic offshoot of Peake’s Obakki Designs fashion brand, has drilled more than 400 water wells and built 12 schools in South Sudan and Cameroon. Their current focus is building water wells for the nomadic people of the cattle camps in the far-reaching corners of South Sudan. “It’s one of the world’s last pastoralist, animist societies. It’s just a wonderful, beautiful, mysterious place,” Peake says. “All of these camps are coming together and they’re fighting to death over scarcity of resources, over a lack of water.” The foundation has launched a pilot project in one of the United Nations-identified hot zones where they are drilling wells and livestock watering stations in hopes of breaking the cycle of conflict. “All of our campaigns now are surrounding the preservation of this historical tribe because if they don’t stop fighting then the government needs to disband them,” Peake explains. To help raise money for the humanitarian

Many pieces feature Peake’s own photographs of the nomadic cattle camps layered on top of historical photos from the 1920s to demonstrate how little things have changed. “It’s been this traditional society forever and to them there’s no reason to change. There’s beauty in the simplicity and there’s strength in their tradition.” Peake has been involved in humanitarian work since high school and at 18 went on her very first service trip to Romania where she brought aid to orphanages. Originally from small-town Alberta, she now lives in West Vancouver with her husband, guitarist Ryan Peake of Nickelback, and their two children. The self-taught fashion designer once had a bricks-and-mortar boutique in Gastown, but now sells her Obakki apparel almost exclusively online. “People were really starting to pay attention to the fashion that I was designing and Obakki itself grew a brand name in a very short period of time,” she says. But the hype surrounding her fashion label quickly began to trump any attention her overseas projects were receiving.

“I started to get a bit frustrated with that just because my passion, and what drives me, really, is the philanthropic work that I’m doing.” Then came a pivotal moment when she realized she could merge her two interests and, in doing so, give fashion a greater purpose. “Why don’t I put my talents, or my craft, together with my passion and just tell these stories in a more creative way?” she thought. So, she started using her brand as a platform to raise money and awareness and established the Obakki Foundation in 2009. She says Obakki

Designs absorbs any administrative costs, from business cards to travel expenses, so that all public donations and 100 per cent net profits generated from Obakki product sales go directly to the foundation’s humanitarian projects. “We’re a small organization but we’re really effective,” Peake says. “Because we maximize our money, we’re able to have a lot of results.” To date, the foundation has raised close to $2.5 million for initiatives focused on providing education and clean water in South Sudan and Cameroon.

Team preparing for opener From page 13 The music in Bollywood is always evolving, Ravindran explains, and every year the industry comes out with music for the current generation. The music they choose also depends on the script they are given. “We’re kind of working around newer sounds that we can use which are something that people can relate to,” Ravindran says. “So even if it’s an older song that we’re going to use, we’re going to try and remix it using newer sounds that appeal to everyone.” The production has been busy with rehearsals to prepare for the July 17 opening night. The team has taken two to three weeks to prepare. Ravindran says she’s having fun and the highlight has been incorporating dance into a play. “It’s work, but I’m really enjoying what I’m doing as well.”

Staged images were distributed everywhere in China

From page 14

really are not feminine at all, they’re almost androgynous,” she says. “It’s so controlled as a series of images.” Using a Swedish-made Hasselblad camera and an unlimited supply of colour film stock, Yaxin captured the operas in their moments of thunder. However, when viewed in large prints on gallery walls, the photos reveal more than they were perhaps intended to. “I think for me it’s the very staged quality,” Pakasaar says about the appeal of the pictures. “They are like tableaus that are very articulated in their details.” Both the photos and the operas were intended to be the blunt tools of a propaganda machine, but when viewed through a modern lens, the pictures are somewhat subversive. Flying soldiers appear to be clutching wires, and the red sky of certain operas is reminiscent of the Technicolor sunset in a lush Hollywood musical that would have been decried as bourgeois in China. “A lot of the artifice that we see in what’s in the gallery would not be visible once they were tiny postcards,” Pakasaar explains.

While the operas were staged, they also went far beyond the stage. “They were really mass distributed. Everywhere on the streets there were posters, many, many postcards. Some of the images were put onto ceramic cups and different kinds of crafts. They were just everywhere, ubiquitous,” Pakasaar says. During a time when North America had Spider-Man and The Beatles, China had the operas, which adorned both comic books and record sleeves, often being blasted in public squares and factories. In her novel Red Azalea, Anchee Min recounts growing up in China at a moment in history when it was not unusual for children to have names like Guard of Red, Liberation, Revolution, Resist U.S., and Space Conqueror, so-named to mark Mao’s call for China to build a spaceship. The climate was often conflicting for Min. She won praise for memorizing the words of Mao, but she also saw her welleducated mother sent to be reformed at a shoe factory after wiping with a newspaper that included Mao’s picture. She wasn’t able to afford toilet paper at the time. In the centre of it all were the operas. “To love or not to love the operas was a serious political attitude. It meant to be or not

to be a revolutionary,” she writes. “I grew up with the operas. They became my cells.” The operas were generally created to do away with what Mao considered counter-revolutionary dramas featuring landlords, generals and emperors. The new operas were pointed political lessons. One aria, entitled, “I won’t quit the battle until all the beasts are killed,” included the lyrics: “My Dad is a pine tree, his will is strong. A hero of indomitable spirit, he is a true communist.” The exhibit is balanced with Presentation House Gallery’s Dr. Strangelove exhibit, which includes photos of the pie-fight scene stricken from the final film. Those photos were taken by New York tabloid photographer Arthur Fellig, better known as Weegee. “The Weegee exhibition was presenting a real puzzle for us, and this seemed to present itself as the perfect (balance) because it was also about a historical period,” Pakasaar says. The gallery is planning to host a discussion with artist Gu Xiong, who first learned his trade during brief breaks from forced labour during the Cultural Revolution. The talk is scheduled for July 20 at 1 p.m.

Get Outside Summer is for sailing Eagle Harbour family spends time together on the water When Janet and her husband moved to Eagle Harbour, they decided to buy a boat, and became members of the Eagle Harbour Yacht Club in 1988. They bought their first boat, a 26-footer, when their son Douglas was four years old and their daughter Elizabeth was two.

Janet Chung admits she was a bit nervous when she started learning how to sail. Her husband, Edward, had grown up around powerboats and as a kid he spent lots of time on the water with his dad fishing, but she was new to the sport. But with Edward showing her the ropes, Janet soon became more confident and at ease with sailing. She says the hardest part of learning to sail is learning to read the water. Sailors have to understand wind shifts and tides and how they affect the boat.

Janet says she loved their first boat, with its cosy interior, but her husband thought it was a “big slug.” It wasn’t fast enough. Edward was racing on other boats and decided to buy something built for racing.

“You really have to understand the direction of the wind and where it’s coming from, and any slight shifts of the wind you have to be prepared for that all the time because that completely changes the direction you may want to be going in,” explains Janet. For example, she notes that heading out past Whytecliff Park toward Gibsons, the winds can pick up quickly.

Their new boat was 27 feet and called Coyote Moon. In keeping with maritime tradition, they didn’t change the name of the boat as that is considered bad luck. Edward participated with the new boat in regular races, and both of the kids completed sailing lessons at the yacht club. Douglas is now 19, and has been an instructor at the club’s sailing school for four years. Elizabeth, now 17, is currently enjoying her first summer teaching at the club.

“You can be in calm water in one spot and once you head around the point all of a sudden you have to be on your toes, it can be quite strong wind,” she says. “Things can change very rapidly on the water.”

“It’s kind of the perfect summer job,” notes Janet.

Deal Yourself in This Summer from


The club also has a junior executive membership program, which has given her kids the opportunity over the years to interact with some of the senior members in organizing club functions and races. Janet says it has kept her kids busy and they have developed a great respect for the water and a love of sailing. The Chung family was involved in sailboat racing together for a number of years, but has moved away from that, and now sails for fun and to enjoy the great outdoors. Every weekend in the summer, they invite family or friends to join them on their boat

They work together as a team, and Janet says her husband’s motto is “The family that sails together stays together.” “So far that’s worked,” says Janet with a laugh. – ROSALIND DUANE,

Safe water ways Police boat making regular weekend rounds With summer in full swing, it’s a good time to consider water safety. Recently, the North Vancouver RCMP detachment began active, regular patrols of local waterways. “We’re there to make sure that people have a safe, enjoyable time and get back to their launch at night,” explains Cpl. Richard De Jong, of the North Vancouver RCMP. The police marine patrol vessel will take to the water every weekend for the rest of the summer performing safety checks as recreational boating season gets underway. “We’re also there to educate the boating community. We want them to be safe. We want them to enjoy themselves,” says De Jong.

Go Fish


Greg Hamilton shows his six-year-old daughter Olivia how to cast a fishing line, while her four-year-old brother Rayan watches, as part of B.C. Family Fishing Day presented by Metro Vancouver and the Seymour Salmonid Society June 16 at Rice Lake. The event featured licence-free fishing, exhibitions, a barbecue, and more, as part of an annual B.C. fishing weekend to encourage people to try fishing. Scan with Layar app for more photos.


Safety checks include a list of required equipment on board. Depending on the type and size of the boat, that equipment may include items such as operator proof of competency cards, fire extinguishers and lifejackets. “We strongly recommend

that young children wear them at all times. Adults can set the example by wearing them themselves,” says De Jong of life-jackets, which are mandatory to have on board. De Jong says he has seen boaters who sit on their lifejackets, and says police can’t enforce common sense. Sometimes the crew has made boaters aware of deficiencies at the marine launch before their boat is even in the water. “You’d be surprised what people try to put into the water after it sits all winter,” says De Jong. If you experience a flat tire on the road you can walk home, but on the water if there’s an emergency you don’t have a lot of choice for backup and assistance, he adds. It’s important for boaters to be prepared before they hit the water, notes De Jong. Accidents happen very quickly on the water, he says. “We want people to enjoy the water especially in the summer time and to do it safely.” – ROSALIND DUANE,

NEW MEMBERS WELCOME Find out more about our great value Fitness Memberships!

One of the best ways to enjoy the great outdoors is to get involved in mountain biking. For parents who are interested in getting their kids involved with riding local mountains there are three questions to ask when considering if your child is ready: Is my child a confident bike rider who can start, stop, and steer with ease? Is my child mature enough to understand the dangers involved with mountain biking? Does my child have a properly maintained mountain bike that will help give them a positive experience? If the answer to all of these is “Yes,” your child is probably ready to hit the downhill slopes. If your child is really interested in doing more advanced mountain biking trails, consider getting a full-face helmet along with some other gear like gloves, shin pads and chest protectors to help prevent injuries. How can parents help prepare their child for safe bike riding? Helmets, helmets, helmets! The first rule of biking is to always wear a helmet. It’s important to teach children about the importance of wearing a helmet to prevent head injuries. Another way to promote safe bike riding is to join your kids as much as you can. Kids who are left to their own devices will be more likely to learn unsafe bike riding habits. By teaming up for rides, you can show your kids what safe biking is all about. While you may have developed some bad habits yourself over the years, this will be a time to really think about what kind of young bikers you want to raise. The roads and trails can be dangerous, so join your kids and make sure you talk to them about the hazards they may encounter. What are some common bike safety errors or myths? In all my years working at Pedalheads Bike Camps, one myth stands out more than any other: Just wearing a helmet is good enough. Unfortunately, ill-fitting helmets are something we see all too often at our camps on the first day. Wearing a helmet is extremely important, so is how the helmet fits. A loose-fitting helmet that moves around when the child shakes their head will not provide the same level of safety as a snug-fitting helmet. To check if your child’s helmet fits right, ensure you cannot fit more than two fingers between their chin and the straps. Also check if the helmet is on straight. It should fit straight across the forehead and around the rest of the head. If your child’s helmet is tilted too far forward or backward, part of their head will be exposed to a fall. The two-finger rule works here as well: Place two fingers together horizontally above your child’s eyebrows and run the two fingers straight across the forehead. This is how much room should be between the eyebrows and the helmet. With a little extra thought towards safety, parents can rest easy knowing they kids are having fun while staying safe. Happy trail riding.

STEYNS, CHELSEA A. AUG 30, 1976 - JUN 23, 2013

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother, wife, daughter, sister, teacher and friend, Chelsea Amber Steyns. Surrounded by family members, Chelsea’s courageous battle with brain cancer came to a peaceful end on Sunday, June 23, 2013. Chelsea was a highly valued member of the North Shore Community where she owned a dance school and inspired thousands of students throughout her nineteen−year career. She was a very special individual who drew people to her through her warm and outgoing personality. There were no bounds to her enthusiasm for life or to the positive way she embraced it. She was loved and cherished by all who knew her. Chelsea is survived by two beautiful sets of twins, Owen & Cooper and Maxine & Cash, husband Todd, mother Judith, father Gary, sister Emily (Theran), brother Dylan (Alicia) and countless friends and supporters. There will be a special tribute to Chelsea and a celebration of her life on Saturday, July 20th at Mulgrave School in West Vancouver. For details and times please go to In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to an account for Chelsea’s children (same website). As she danced in the light with joy, love lifted her. As she brushed against this world so gently, she lifted us.

Gone too Soon, Never to be Forgotten

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alison Munro. She left this world peacefully on Monday July 8, surrounded by her family. Alison was 58 years old. Alison was a devoted and loving wife to her husband Bruce. She was the center of her family and adored her children Bryce and Jamie. Alison filled their lives with remarkable experiences and lots of love. She cherished her grandchildren Lauren and Elaina, who brought her endless joy and laughter. Alison was a long-time resident of North Vancouver and resided in Pemberton Heights for much of her life. In her professional career she operated a successful marine business in Horseshoe Bay with Bruce for over thirty years. She and Bruce retired after selling their business in 2007 and used their new time to enjoy life and to travel the world with family and friends. Alison lived every day fully and with thoughtfulness. She will be greatly missed by her family, including her husband of over 40 years Bruce, children and daughters-in-law, Bryce (Stacy) and Jamie (Karla), grandchildren Lauren and Elaina, mother Grace, brothers Doug (Marina) and Derek (Sandie), sister-in-law Jane (Mike), brothers-in-law Morley and Tim along with her aunts, uncle, cousins, nephews, niece and friends. Alison was predeceased by her father Jim and her brother Lorne. Alison will live on in our hearts and memories. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to BC Cancer Agency in Alison’s name. A celebration of her life will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, July 19 at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier, 138 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver. We are grateful for the extraordinary care and compassion bestowed by Dr. Paul Sugar, Dr. George Chalmers and the nursing staff at North Shore Hospice.

BEATSON, George Grant It is with great sorrow we announce the death of George Grant Beatson on the 26th June 2013. Grant is survived by his wife Gerry, daughters Carla (Stewart), Sara (Jim) and Gail, and his granddaughters Daisy and Rita. Grant was born on the 24th of May 1929 in St Boniface, Manitoba and grew up in Norwood. He graduated from the University of Manitoba with a degree in Commerce in 1950. He then spent 2 years abroad, one working in the UK at AVRO’s and one travelling around the Continent. He married Gerry in 1954 and spent his first few professional years in sales travelling around the Prairies. He then joined Deloitte, Plender, Haskins and Sells in Winnipeg as a Management Consultant. With Deloitte’s he transferred the family to Edmonton, back to Winnipeg and finally to Vancouver in 1972. He left Deloitte’s and set up his own practice with Godfrey Chowne and later Julian Hoogstra joined the practice, with the business known as Chowne Beatson Hoogstra. Upon retirement, Grant spent many happy years with Gerry at home, in the garden, travelling and keeping in contact with many friends and extended family. He adored his family and in particular his granddaughters. A service will be held for Grant at a date yet to be confirmed.

Re-badge has M3 lovers revved up Brendan McAleer

THE LS has been the steady flagship for Lexus since the company’s creation — a stylish redesign for 2013 marks the biggest refresh the line has ever seen. It is available at Jim Pattison Lexus in the Northshore Auto Mall.

2013 Lexus LS

New era for Lexus leader

IN 1989 Toyota decided to enter the luxury car market in a significant way.


Scan this page with the Layar app to see more photos of the Lexus LS.

They did so by creating the Lexus brand that became the standard by which all other luxury brands were measured. Their first model introduced was the LS and this classleading full-size sedan has continued being the range’s flagship ever since. I still remember driving one of the first Lexus LS models to hit the market. I was shocked at how well the car performed against some of the established sedans in the market place. The car was so quiet and refined that it felt like it was riding on air. Lexus has always been

respected for building luxurious, safe and reliable cars. However, they were sometimes criticized for being too conservative. Recently, their new models such as the blazing LFA supercar and sharplooking GS and IS models have

changed people’s opinions somewhat. Lexus never forgot about the car that started its brand, though. All along the way, the LS maintained its technological innovation and unsurpassed luxury. However, when held up against the established market leaders from Europe, Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and Jaguar, the Lexus flagship lacked a performance element. Well, for 2013, that will end with the introduction of the new F Sport model. Design 2013 marks possibly the biggest refresh this model line has ever seen. Half of the car’s 6,000 parts have been reengineered. The basic size and weight remain the same as the

outgoing model. The most obvious change is the front fascia. Lexus’ new spindle-shaped grille gives the LS a bold new look. Other refinements include chrome accents, a lower front bumper and a bulge running up the centre of the hood. The chrome accents along the side lead to a sculpted rear end which continues Lexus’ dramatic new image. If eyes are the windows to the soul, the LS’s new headlamps project the sophistication at its heart. High-intensity discharge lights are standard but those seeking something special can opt for an all-LED setup. The Lexuslogo taillamps are especially eye

BMW builds last M3 Coupe Folks, the sky is falling. Well, at least that’s the impression you’d get if you logged on to any BMW fan-forum or autoenthusiast website over the past week. BMW has officially announced their intention to re-badge two-door versions of their best-selling 3 Series range as the 4 Series, a move they’ve been contemplating since the mid-1990s. This brings BMW model nomenclature into line with their larger 5 Series sedan and 6 Series coupe — which is also available as a four door called the Gran Coupe . . . well, let’s not pull too hard on that loose thread. With the 4 Series configurator already online, and a M-spec test-car spotted running around Germany wearing vinyl camouflage, it’s only a matter of time before the new M4 hits the road. BMW’s hotted-up sedan will remain the M3. Naturally, the change in badge for the two-door has a few Bimmer purists steamed. Really though, with the new car reportedly more than 90 kilograms lighter and with a torquey new turbocharged straight-six, this rose by any other name will still drive as sweetly. One hopes. Toyota sells three million Priuses. Prii. Whatever. A long time ago I was driving in traffic, forgot to shoulder check properly (tsk, tsk) and wound up cutting off David Suzuki, who was driving a first See Flood page 41

generation Toyota Prius. These sorts of things only happen to me — sorry Mr. Suzuki! Toyota is celebrating quite a milestone for their groundbreaking hybrid, with the three-millionth car sold. No doubt some of the recent sales success is down to the two new models that joined the original five-door hatchback, an expanded range of small, medium, or large Priuses. Whether or not you feel hybrid vehicles are either a snooze-fest, the saviours of the planet, or merely a stepping-stone on our way towards vehicle electrification, the fact is Toyota can look back on their 1997 launch of a quirky little sedan with some well-earned pride. With 3,000,000 out on the road, the Prius is no longer an experiment, it’s a feature on the automotive landscape, and rates a full chapter in any future automotive history book. Toronto flood claims dozens of vehicles Thanks to the speed of communication afforded by Twitter and Instagram, the Internet has been inundated with pictures of exotic cars up to their doorhandles in Toronto’s recent flooding. You feel bad for the owners — well, except for the guy who tried to drive his Ferrari California through two feet of water. That was just dumb. The weather back East took a turn for the worse on Monday night, with record precipitation overwhelming storm drains and causing flash flooding and power outages. Many cars were damaged, and more written off the following day when unwary owners misjudged water depths. As Toronto dries out, a little consumer advice: While flood damage is the sort of thing that should theoretically show up through any reputable vehicle history search service, that’s not always the case. Anyone purchasing a vehicle that was registered in Ontario this summer should do a little extra due diligence. New Corvette Stingray brings efficiency bragging rights By law, any review of Chevrolet’s Corvette must include the phrase, “Giant Slayer!” or “Supercar Killer!” or possibly “Eurotrash Inconveniencer!” We get it: the ‘Vette knocks high-dollar machinery on their heads for half the price. Now Chevrolet is trumpeting something hardly any Corvette buyer really thinks about — good fuel economy. Put the new Stingray in Eco mode and it’ll (supposedly) see something like 7.8 litres/100 kilometres. That’s the sort of efficiency a Mini Cooper S puts out! How does Chevy manage to get figures this low out of a car with 455 horsepower? First, that spec is only for the seven-speed manual transmission, and it’ll only happen when you’re cruising on the highway. What’s more, Eco mode deactivates half of the allaluminium V-8’s cylinders under light engine loads, meaning that you’d be driving a four-cylinder Corvette. Also, methinks real-world figures are going to be somewhat less rosy than these optimistic projections. I personally have seen the figure 50.1 l/100 km displayed on the instant fuel-economy readout of a 427 Corvette convertible, so odds are the Stingray isn’t going to replace your four-cylinder Camry as the daily commuter. But who cares, it’s great that Chevy is managing to pay attention to all possible definitions of “performance” with what is, arguably, America’s sportscar. I can’t wait until these things arrive. Pope calls for humbler cars After the Batmobile, the Popemobile is probably the most famous car in the world. While His Holiness, Pope Francis, has a new, heavily modified Mercedes ML to carry him around on official business, he reportedly drives a Ford Focus for personal use. Now the Pontiff is calling for the rest of the church to tone down their driving habits (get it, habits? Sorry.) by purchasing older, shabbier cars more appropriate to the vows of poverty. It’s all part of Francis’s push towards a humbler Catholic Church which has seen his Papal apartments exchanged for a more modest living area and the Papal throne exchanged for what looks like a folding picnic chair. Naturally, my mind immediately turned towards the knotty problem of what might be appropriate for your average parish priest to drive. I’ve got it — a Dodge Spirit!

LS gets sportier but comfort still the key word From page 40

catching. The visual changes are nice, but the most exciting news is the introduction of a performance edition. Available in rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, the F Sport does not receive any more horsepower upgrades but it does get more aggressive styling and unique suspension setup options. The results are startling as the F Sport can appear downright sinister. Performance The area that sees the least significant changes in the refresh is the engine compartment. Lexus’ naturally aspirated direct-injected 4.6litre eight-cylinder engine powers the majority of the line, except for the hybrid. The rear-wheel-drive models receive six more horsepower, up to 386 h.p. and 367 footpounds of torque and the allwheel drive gets 359 h.p. with 367 foot-pounds of torque. The only alternative is a hybrid powertrain which mates a 5.0litre V-8 to two electric motors

using a CVT transmission. These combine to create 438 h.p. and 385 foot-pounds of torque. Driving the new LS is also not a major departure from years past. Engine and road noise continue to be almost imperceptible. However, the revised air suspension system is a noticeable improvement as it delivers a class-leading smooth ride while remaining easily manoeuvrable. The Drive Mode Select feature allows the driver to further tailor the feel of their ride with Eco, Normal, Comfort, Sport and Sport S+ driving modes. Each selection alters the characteristics of the powertrain, suspension and steering. The new F Sport option is the version enthusiasts are most interested in. It boasts a lower, sport tuned air suspension, larger Brembo brakes and 19-inch forged alloy wheels. These additions are impressive upgrades. Under hard driving, body roll is nearly eliminated but the dampers are still smooth over most road imperfections. The steering is sharper, though feedback is still not as responsive as some of its rivals. The LS refuses to lose any of its composure under any circumstance, reminding you it’s able to balance the

performance with luxury. Generally speaking, even the F Sport is still very much tuned for refinement and comfort vs. performance but the overall feel is greatly improved over the regular model. Environment Sitting in the 16-way power adjustable driver seat, the spaciousness is noticeable as there is plenty of room for your head, arms and feet. Every surface you touch is either soft leather or smooth veneered wood. Customers have their choice of premium leather upholsteries and five wood treatments. This creates an environment that is outstanding in the luxury sedan market. Those eyeing the new F Sport will receive black leather seats and steering wheel and aluminium accents. The large Optitron analog tachometer and speedometer are clear and easy-to-read, but those aren’t the most noticeable improvements. The previous model’s touch screen navigation has been replaced with a 12.3-inch multimedia display unit. It’s set higher and deeper in the dash making it easier to read and is controlled with the Lexus Remote Touch haptic joystick. Also, Lexus’ signature analog clock is now equipped with a GPS-based time correction. This is a pretty neat

feature, even though it’s likely one that won’t be used all that often. Lexus didn’t ignore those who spend time in the back seat. They will be comforted by the Ottoman Seating Package with Shiatsu massage and a ceiling-mounted, nine-inch screen with Blu-ray DVD player. With the redesigned LS, Lexus continues to offer unsurpassed occupant comfort in this price range. Features The starting price for the LS 460 is $82,950. The range topping LS 600h L starts at $131,200. The lineup includes all-wheel-drive and longwheelbase options as well as the F Sport package.

Additional features, available as options or on higher trims,

include right-rear power recliner with ottoman and multifunction shiatsu massage, four-zone climate concierge, pre-collision warning system with all-speed dynamic radar cruise control, blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, and LED headlamps. Fuel efficiency numbers for all the rear-wheel-drive models with the 4.6-litre V-8 are 12.9 litres/100 kilometres city, 8.2 l/100 km highway for 10.8 l/100 km combined. The all-wheel-drive models with the same engine get 13.5 l/100 km city, 8.7 l/100 km highway and 11.5 l/100 km combined. The hybrid model, which is also AWD, sees 10.6 l/100 km city, 9.1 l/100 km highway and 9.9 l/100 km combined. Thumbs up The dramatic new look ushers in a bold new era for Lexus. Driver comfort exceeds what we’ve come to expect from the LS while the F Sport shows us what is possible with the LS. Thumbs down Not much to point out, except that the entire LS lineup is still comfort-oriented in comparison to European models and therefore lacks some character. The bottom line The LS continues to provide top-notch reliability, comfort and safety, but for the first time

ever we’re most excited about its looks and sporting potential. Competitors BMW 7 Series The BMW 7 Series starts at $106,600, proving the LS is one of the more economical models in this market segment. The BMW, however, provides a more spirited driving experience and better fuel economy. The BMW 7 Series may please customers looking for more performance but the Lexus is still one of the smoothest in this segment. Mercedes-Benz S-Class If comfort is your main objective, you can’t do any better than the Mercedes. However, you will also pay more, as prices start at $109,900. The S-Class offers a composed ride, spacious interior and various engine options. The Mercedes flagship has been thoroughly redesigned for 2014. Jaguar XJ The offering from Jaguar boasts unmistakable styling and is comparatively priced at $89,000 for the entry level model. The XJ also provides a serious performance model with its Supersport line. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, you would be hard pressed to find a bolder car in this class than the XJ.
