Mayor no fan of new water standards Benjamin Alldritt

THE mayor of the City of North Vancouver is calling on the provincial government to ignore new federal drinking water standards that he says provide no health benefits but could create $400 million in new costs for Metro Vancouver taxpayers. Darrell Mussatto, also chairman of Metro’s utilities committee, told the North Shore News “all the science and all the scientists say there’s no good reason for this.” InNovemberof2011,HealthCanada released a draft report titled Turbidity in Drinking Water. The federal agency proposes that the maximum acceptable level of cloudiness in drinking water be reduced from five nephelometric turbidity units, or NTUs, to one. “You would not notice the difference in a glass of water,” Mussatto said. “We don’t know why they would come up with these stringent new regulations.” In a March 16 report to the utilities committee, senior utility engineer Stan Woods wrote that the changes “have not been scientifically justified, are inappropriately more stringent than regulation in other parts of the world including the United States, and are not See Province page 5

Extracurricular activities at risk

Jane Seyd

PARENTS and school administrators on the North Shore are waiting to feel the impacts of stepped-up job action after teachers across the province voted Thursday to halt their involvement in voluntary extracurricular activities. It’s not clear yet how many activities like sports, drama and arts will continue with extra help from parents and administrators, and how many will get shut down. Teachers have already withdrawn from some after-school volunteering during the bitter labour dispute, but others have continued to coach and oversee activities. “Now they’re being told flat out no,” said David Whitehead,

chairman of the North Vancouver Parents Advisory Council. “Parents will come forward and step into the breach to a certain extent,” said Whitehead. But some of the larger sporting events that require school staff involvement to satisfy liability concerns may be harder to pull off, he said. Teachers voted 73 per cent on Thursday in favour of a plan that includes refusing to participate in any extra-curricular or voluntary activities as a protest against Bill 22. So far, the decision on whether to coach or take part in other activities has largely been left to individual teachers or in the hands

of local unions. Most teachers in West Vancouver stopped volunteering last month, after their union took a stand against involvement in extracurricular activities. In many cases, parents have stepped in and taken over coaching, said Elaine McHarg, president of the West Vancouver Parents Advisory Council. Students have been running clubs mostly by themselves, she said. In North Vancouver, teachers’ involvement in activities has been mixed. Pam McLeod, a teacher-librarian at Sherwood Park Elementary in Deep Cove, was one of the local teachers who took part in the vote Thursday. McLeod, who coaches cross-country, puts on musicals with the students and sponsors book clubs, said the decision to See Complete page 5 ®™ Trademarkk of AIR MILEES Internatio ® a nal Traading B.V V.

Ali, who did not want his real name used in order to protect his family’s honour, said he and his friends would sometimes vandalize things or smoke weed. However, that all changed when he met Capilano Youth Services Society worker, Pejman Pirgheibi. “When I met Pejman, he gave me a lot of other things to do,” Ali said. “He showed me how I could use the services to my advantage.” Ali was connected with Capilano Youth Services Society NEWS photo Paul McGrath through a counsellor at Carson Graham secondary.

withdraw from volunteering was very difficult. “I would never want to disappoint children and parents,” she said. “I was probably the last person to vote on my staff. That’s how hard it was.” But McLeod said teachers are “united in our horror at what’s happening with our education system.” McLeod said most teachers don’t want to be political, but the move was needed to get the public’s attention. Mark Jefferson, assistant superintendent for the North Vancouver school district, said graduation banquets and ceremonies will still go ahead. But sports programs will be more difficult to accommodate without help from teachers, he said. He added administrators won’t know until next week when they meet with the representatives of the North Vancouver Teachers Association what the impact of the decision will be. On Friday, teachers were ordered by the Labour Relations Board to complete report cards by the end of this month. Whitehead said it’ll be a relief to many secondary school parents

to get the marks. “Some of those can impact the ability (of students) to get into post-secondary education,” he said. “It’s a relief to know we will be getting grades.” Susan Lambert, president of the B.C. Teachers Federation, called the decision to back out of coaching and volunteering “wrenching” for most teachers. “It’s not something we come to lightly,” she said. “Parents ought to be angry,” she said — but added they should be angry at the government for allowing the educational system to deteriorate over the past decade. Representatives of both the West Vancouver and North Vancouver teachers associations were in meetings Friday and could not be reached for comment before press time. Bill 22, the controversial law passed last month, imposes a sixmonth suspension on all strike action by teachers and appointed a mediator to negotiate a deal between the BCTF and the employer within certain strict guidelines. Those constraints prevent the mediator from considering any proposal that would increase overall costs or that would tie in caps on class sizes. The bill also imposes hefty fines on any individual teacher who takes part in a strike.

Province will have final say

justified by any assessment of cost versus benefit.” Woods noted that drinking water was not held to the same standard in such population centres as New York, Boston, Seattle, Portland and San Francisco. Although the federal government can produce guidelines, ultimately the province will decide whether or not to adopt them. Early conversations with provincial staff, said Mussatto, have been promising. “The province is listening,” he said. “They understand the science isn’t

Upgrades would be required at theCoquitlamreservoirhowever, and that could cost $300 million to $400 million, Mussatto said, money that would come from around Metro Vancouver, in part from the North Shore. The North Vancouver mayor said his committee will be urging the Metro Vancouver board to write to the province and the federal government advising them against the new guidelines. Mussatto also plans to travel to

Victoria in early May and take the matter up with MLAs in person. The potential for new water costs is particularly hard to swallow on the North Shore because strict new federal standards require a new wastewater treatment plant on the North Shore, which is estimated to cost more than $1 billion dollars. Funding these major infrastructure projects is a major regional issue, Mussatto said. “We’re going to see a real tussle and a tug-of-war between municipalities,” he said.

Teaching a lesson O

N Friday, another salvo was fired in the nasty ongoing battle between the Liberal government and the B.C. Teachers Federation. In a move that is probably at least as upsetting to as many teachers as parents and students, teachers around the province voted to withdraw from extra-curricular activities. Exactly what that will look like and the extent to which individual teachers will comply remains an open question. There will at best be a dramatic reduction in coaching of sports teams and involvement in drama, clubs and graduation activities. Schools will be the poorer for it. The truth is, however, most people don’t pay attention to political issues until they are touched in a tangible and personal way. So if your kid isn’t the one

you said it “Give me 46 kids and pay me another 10 grand? That doesn’t help the situation.” Rob Millard, West Vancouver Teachers’ Association president, opposes plans by the province to reopen the class size issue in return for more pay, one of several aspects of Bill 22 that have fuelled an escalating labour dispute (from an April 15 news story). ••• “You’re trying to build a service. You don’t build service by cutting routes in the areas you’re trying to build in.” District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton, says scaling back won’t solve the impasse with the province on how to fund public transit over the long-term (from an April 15 news story). ••• “We are deeply rooted and connected to Burrard Inlet. It’s the heart of who we are as a people. They’re putting us at a huge risk for accidents.” Chief Justin George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation is absolutely opposed to plans by Kinder Morgan to nearly triple the amount of oil shipped through Burrard Inlet. The Tsleil-Waututh Nation is directly across the inlet from the tanker terminal (from an April 20 news story).

with special needs, struggling without extra help in the classroom, you may not understand the teachers’ position on Bill 22. But when there’s suddenly no top-flight sports competitions or drama club, a much wider range of parents begin to take notice. It’s ironic, of course, that teachers have resorted to withdrawing from volunteer activities to get attention. For years, the education system has limped along on the goodwill of teachers and their ability to do more with less — much of it unpaid. Now they’re standing up and saying no. One North Vancouver teacher was asked this week what schools would look like without extracurricular activities. More pertinent questions, she said, are what they would look like without enough special education teachers, or limits on class sizes.

issues. They hold most of their events down at the Café for Contemporary Art on Esplanade, where the somewhat hyperactive owner, Tyler Russell, invites people to write and draw their ideas on his walls. It’s a pretty creative, out-there form of public consultation, which probably explains why the city hasn’t quite figured out how to participate yet. I do see councillors and council hopefuls down there though. The museum has three problems: they have too much stuff, they badly need a new building, and they have a measly $45,000

Theatre as part of their redevelopment of the other corner on the same intersection. City council started to notice that developers were showing up with community groups in tow to advocate for their project. It’s easy to tell a developer to buzz off, a lot harder to tell your community theatre group to go away. So a new policy now bars builders from offering specific community goods as a sweetener. Instead, they produce some cash and council later decides how to spend it. So the Central Lonsdale museum never happened. Then the conversation shifted to the maritime centre site, which remains a rusty missing tooth in the city’s waterfront revitalization. There’s no shortage of ideas for the site, and for a while the leading one was to build some sort of cultural multiplex there, housing the theatre and the museum and possibly a Capilano University satellite campus. But as Kirkpatrick pointed out during her café talk, any action on that site is years away. A more attractive option is the old pipe shop right next door. It’s a historic building, appropriate for a museum, and it has the virtue of actually existing today. But it is less than half the size of what the museum wants and the renovations required, Kirkpatrick said, will likely run somewhere in the neighbourhood of $10 million. That’s a long way from $45,000. So who has $10 million bucks? Well, Onni isn’t the only one with a big project in the works. Several forum members raised the

However little known the motivations of such a woman may be on her first appearance in The Real Housewives series, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the viewing audience that she is assumed to be sane, cognizant of potential perils and eager to bring them on. “My dear Stanley,” said I to my husband one day, “have you heard that five housewives from Vancouver are currently appearing on television?” Stanley replied that he had not. “I have recorded it on our PVR.” Stanley did not lift his gaze from his beloved iPhone. “Are you not eager to view it, to determine

whether it has merit?” I asked impatiently. “You will surely tell me, and that is good enough for me,” he replied. I needed no further encouragement. “Well, my dear, the five characters are these: Jody, a bleached-blond shopkeeper from West Vancouver; Ronnie, a mother of five with strangely enlarged lips, also from West Vancouver; Mary, a divorced designer of scarves from Yaletown; Reiko, a Japanese-Canadian mother of two who collects fancy automobiles in Shaughnessy; and Christina, who, it seems, aspires to acquire her third wealthy husband. She claims to be 30 years of age.”

“Where does she live?” asked Stanley with a modicum of interest, despite being nowhere near Christina’s social standing. (It is Stanley’s habit to wear white stockings with sandals. Christina’s dream men surely wear leather mules from Milan.) “No idea. Perhaps she lives in False Creek,” I said. “Is she exceedingly beautiful?” “What do you think, my dear? She has already divorced two men, has few female chums, and her best friend is a male hairdresser with orange skin who gave her a Botox injection as a birthday present.” “What about the other housewives? Do they not like her?” “No, they do not like her. They do not like anyone. They pretend to be caring friends, but their social intercourse consists of badgering one another, trading insincere compliments, and hissing angrily ‘Get therapy!’” “Do they not talk about anything else?” “What else is there?” I replied. “Do you think they debate economic theory, or discuss some book they might

“And? You have watched four episodes already.” “Passive aggression gets results. . . ?” I proffered. “Really? Does the series offer any insights into modern society? Is that not that why you watch it, because it tells you something about popular culture?” “Of course it does,” I said comfortably. “It tells me that 200 years after Jane Austen mocked social climbers in Pride and Prejudice, women still relinquish their propriety in their quest for money and fame. And even in 2012, when other options exist, some choose to enslave themselves, trading their physical beauty, real or manmade, for the reflected status of a rich husband.” “But my darling, did you not do that?” asked Stanley uncertainly. “I abide by the words of Lady Astor, my dear. She is the one who said, ‘I married beneath me. All women do.’”

and the scarf designer, but what do the other Housewives do?” “Is it not obvious, my dear? They are housewives. They do the same things any real housewife does. They take their yachts on excursions to Granville Island to have lunch and discuss what harlots and cowards their absent friends are, and how they are sadly doomed to die alone.” “Do you do that too, my dear?” asked Stanley, in wonder. “Obviously not — we do not have a yacht. And, as you are well aware, I am not a housewife. I have a job.” Stanley cocked an eyebrow. “Hmm.” After this, there ensued a long pause. “Now, what have you learned from this television program?” asked Stanley. “Well, Christian Louboutin still appears to be a popular shoe designer,” I said thoughtfully.

It takes them hours every day to shop, get their hair and nails done, have whale sperm smeared on their faces by spa professionals, order their servants around and flirt with the friends of their teenaged sons.” “Do they not eat?” asked Stanley, another hint that he and Christina have nothing in common. Christina lives on champagne alone. Even her dog is a greyhound. “Not really. They drink a lot but they only eat some sort of mulch and vitamin concoction.” “How unsavoury,” said Stanley. “One of them, named Jody, once had a catering business. We saw her shopping at the Bosa grocery story in one episode, so she must eat on occasion.” “I like Bosa,” said Stanley. “I wonder if I have ever encountered her there?” “She would be the one who required two clerks to walk behind her to the parking lot carrying her parcels,” I said. “You would have noticed.” “There is the shopkeeper

No second chance to blow

Jane Seyd

A West Vancouver businessman has been told once again that police don’t have to offer second chances when they ask a driver for a breath sample.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Janice Dillon upheld a decision by North Vancouver provincial court Judge Bill Rodgers, who told Kenneth Charles Komenda last fall that he doesn’t get a second chance after refusing a roadside breath demand. West Vancouver police Const. Dominic Toa stopped Komenda, 58, as Komenda drove his BMW convertible across the Lions Gate Bridge in the early morning hours of Aug. 6, 2010. The officer asked Komenda if he’d had anything to drink that night. Komenda said he hadn’t. Komenda later explained his response saying he had only taken a few sips of beer during a social business meeting and didn’t consider he’d been drinking. But Toa smelled alcohol coming from the vehicle and asked Komenda to step out of the car. When the officer repeated his question, Komenda said he’d had some beer two hours before. Toa then asked Komenda to provide a breath sample. Instead, Komenda asked what would happen if he refused to blow and was told he’d face the same penalties as a driver who

failed the breathalyzer test. Komenda refused and was arrested and placed in the police car. Komenda’s lawyer in the original trial said once in the police car, his client changed his mind. He argued the police officer should have given him a second chance. But the judge didn’t agree, noting Komenda is a successful businessman and clearly understood what was being asked of him. “If the courts say that a driver must receive a second chance to provide a breath sample, then why not a third chance? Or a fifth?” said Rodgers. “Such a requirement would render the breath demand legislation largely inoperative.” Rodgers convicted Komenda of refusing to provide a breath sample, fined him $1,000 and prohibited him from driving for a year. In the appeal, Komenda’s lawyer argued that Komenda hadn’t refused the officer’s breath demand because no “demand” for a breath sample was ever made: “It was just a request.” He also said Komenda should have had a second chance to blow. But Dillon didn’t agree. In dismissing his appeal, she added the “factual situation” of the case presented an “insurmountable obstacle” to Komenda’s case.

Safety check takes 2 taxis, 6 trailers off road

SIX commercial trailers and two taxi cabs were pulled off the road April 12 after provincial commercial vehicle safety inspectors and the RCMP conducted a check stop in North Vancouver.

Provincial inspectors and RCMP officers from North Vancouver’s traffic section handed out 24 safety violation tickets over a six-hour period of stopping commercial vehicles near the Main Street off-ramp. The six trailers pulled off the road did not have their brakes hooked up properly, said Cpl. Richard De Jong, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. One vehicle was ticketed for failing to display a dangerous cargo sign, while one new driver got a $109 fine for displaying a homemade “N” sign. Two taxi cabs were also pulled over for being unsafe. One had a bent frame from a previous accident, said De Jong, while the other had malfunctioning brakes. De Jong said the check stops are about making sure vehicles on the road are safe and about educating the public. De Jong said the stops will likely be a more regular occurrence over the summer months. — Jane Seyd

Port might fit as a partner From page 6 idea of hitting up Port Metro Vancouver for some cash as its Low Level Road and port expansion proposals go forward. If there is anyone who could use some good will and has the money to buy it, it’s the port. It would seem to fly in the face of city council’s new cultural amenities policy, but I think this idea is a winner. The port, by the way, after a disastrous start, has really turned around their consultation process. There’s a long way to go to hammer out all the details, but at least we’re having an informed conversation now. The museum should be part of it.

Separate food scraps from curb waste stream in May

Jeremy Shepherd

THE North Shore is turning greener this May with the implementation of the green can food scraps program.

Sweater Moulé Polo Shirt Banana Republic Trousers Le Château Suit/Tie/Shirt Dunn’s Tailors Shoes Freedman Shoes

The curbside recycling initiative, which begins in the first week of May, is designed to reduce the amount of garbage heading to landfills while cutting greenhouse gas emissions. Yard trimmings, fruits, vegetables, and unwanted leftovers can all be put in the green cans. Residents are reminded to take precautions to keep bear paws away from their green cans. “Whatever they were doing to secure their garbage in the past is the same thing that they’re going to have to do with their green can,” said Jenn Meilleur, programs co-ordinator with the North Shore Recycling Program. Residents are advised to store green cans in their homes or a secure location until pickup day. In order to control the scent of food scraps, Meilleur recommended storing scraps in Tupperware containers during the week. “One thing that can be really helpful for people is to keep the more odorous food scraps like the cooked plate scrapings, and the fish bones, meat and dairy. Hold that stuff separate and keep it in their fridge or freezer,” she said. Each West Vancouver household is scheduled to receive a 46-litre green can between April 30

and May 31. District and City of North Vancouver residents can affix a green can decal to their yard trimmings cans. Cans smaller than 77 litres will not be accepted for pickup. Green can decals are slated to be delivered to all North Shore homes before May 1. Additional decals are available at each municipal hall as well as the North Shore Recycling Depot, free of charge. Residents without an appropriately-sized yard trimmings can will need to buy one to participate in the program. Meilleur stressed that even plastic marked biodegradable or compostable is not accepted. “The compost facility is Fraser Richmond Soil & Fibre and they don’t accept plastic of any kind because it actually compromises the finished compost product,” Meilleur said. Including food scraps with yard trimmings should reduce increases to garbage collection fees, according to Meilleur. The tipping fee for garbage is $107 per tonne. The price of dumping yard trimmings and food scraps is $71 per tonne. North Shore residents who live in apartments may also be able to divert their organic waste, according to Meilleur. “Folks who live in apartments can actually call their current garbage hauler and find out if they offer food scraps collection.” A list of 11 disposal companies offering pickup of organic material is available at greencart.

St. Edmund’s use of McEvoy Park

Kids impress in presentation Benjamin Alldritt

STUDENTS at St. Edmund’s elementary may have some actual grass to play on soon, after the City of North Vancouver agreed to develop a joint use plan for a small adjacent city park. In front of a gallery packed with St. Edmund’s supporters, student body president Mathew Purkiss and classmate Kiahna Jennex presented the school’s proposal to council. “We have a great school,” Purkiss said, “but it lacks a proper schoolyard. However, behind the fence there’s a small green area known as McEvoy Park. Our proposal is to use this park to improve our schoolyard and the community.” After more than 100 years in North Vancouver, St. Edmund’s is the oldest Catholic school on the North Shore, said Jennex, and serves 200 students from 140 families. Nevertheless, the only play area available is the parking lot, an ugly sloping stretch of concrete. “Almost every single day someone falls and hurts themselves,” she said, adding that the gradient also interferes with ball games like soccer. McEvoy Park, she continued, is barely ever used by community members. “If you asked the park, it would say it was lonely and wants to play with kids,” she said. The school proposes to install a low fence around the park and install play equipment. The public would still be welcome to use the space, particularly when students are in class. “This is a win-win proposal,” Jennex said. “Mayor Mussatto,” the two students said in unison, “we are here to tell you that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.” The students’ word-perfect presentation drew loud applause from the crowd and clearly won the hearts of council members. “That was first-class,” said Coun. Don Bell. “You are the youngest people I’ve ever seen at council. Very professional, well done.” Bell quizzed school principal Mike Field on a few safety and public consultation questions. Field said he intended to fully cooperate with city engineering staff and would hold a community hall meeting with council’s blessing. “You’re aware this would be somewhat precedent-setting, using public lands for a private school?” asked Bell. “Yes,” Field replied. Coun. Linda Buchanan asked if parents with preschool-age children would still be able to use McEvoy Park. “Our survival as a school depends on our relationship with the community. I’m definitely interested in making this a proper interaction,” Field said. “We have no choice but to endorse the recommendation before us,” said Coun. Craig Keating. “It’s also a great proposal because St Edmund’s has endured as a core element of our community for quite some time. In a small community like ours, this exactly the kind of thing we need to have.” Staff will return to council with a specific joint-use arrangement.

Vancouver won’t be the only community cheering on their favourite team when our local boys take on the Los Angeles Kings in today’s must-win game in round 1 of the NHL playoffs. A group of new fans at a school in Kigali, Rwanda will also be lending their support. Introduced to the team by North Vancouver resident and youth worker Mark Koop and his co-worker Charlotte Browning during a March trip to get their ducks in a row before returning with a team of Lower Mainland students to volunteer this summer, the Rwandan children caught Canucks fever in a video that’s gone viral.

The event featured a viewing of the Canucks’ final win of the season over the Edmonton Oilers that gave the team the Presidents’ Trophy. Koop, 42, who works as North Vancouver area director of Greater Vancouver YFC/Youth Unlimited and a youth pastor at North Shore Alliance Church, never dreamed their video would garner so much attention. “Because we were in Rwanda, we thought, ‘Let’s film something that we can show just prior to the (game).

IT was an incredibly touching gift.

As part of being awarded the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada National President’s Award, longtime society volunteer and MS patient Marilyn Lenzen was given a memento book filled with descriptions of what makes a good volunteer and leader, as well as photographs and kind words from her peers, celebrating her many achievements and impact over the years. “It was so moving to get this book and the effort that they put in. Most people get a plaque and the joke with MS is, ‘We have enough plaques, that’s what started the whole problem is we have plaques in our brain,’” the North Vancouver resident laughs. “So when they gave me this, it was really, really touching.” According to the society, MS is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system, which is composed of the brain and spinal cord. MS attacks the myelin, the protective covering wrapped around the nerves and the damaged parts of myelin are referred to as lesions or plaques. The National President’s Award, the society’s most prestigious, is given to people with MS in light of their valuable contributions to others who are affected by the disease, as well as the society as a whole. Lenzen received the award at a recent national board of directors dinner in Toronto, Ont., earlier this year. Diagnosed with MS at age 40, Lenzen, now 52, first got involved with the MS Society of Canada 10 years ago, helping to organize the North Shore MS Walk. The 2012 edition is scheduled for Sunday, April 29, at West Vancouver’s Ambleside Park. Lenzen has remained an integral part of the annual event ever since. In the last five years, the walk has raised more than $500,000 for the society, which supports MS research and client services. When Lenzen first took the job, she was told it would take a mere few hours. Little did she know the extent of time she’d ultimately devote to the cause. “It’s something I’m passionate about because the disease has touched my family numerous times,” she says, adding her sister is also affected. “For me, I get more back from it than I give into

try and make changes for them and ensure that the society is doing the types of things that those people with MS need, is really important to me. That’s why I keep doing it.” Lenzen has continued to increase her involvement with the society, climbing the ranks from local to provincial and

national involvement. After becoming involved as an organizer of the local walk, she joined various provincial committees, like client services, then became a director on the B.C. and Yukon division board. After four years, she became provincial board chairwoman. She simultaneously signed on as a national board of director member, joining a number

of committees, including one that focuses on chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) as it relates to MS. Receiving the award was “very humbling,” says Lenzen. “I do it because I feel passionate about the disease and I do it for those who can’t. When I accepted it, I said I didn’t accept it for me, I ac-

cepted it for all my friends and people out there who have MS. To receive the volunteer recognition award is really quite an honour within the MS Society because it’s more than just volunteering, it’s volunteering and making a change . . . . and also inspiring other people to get involved,” she says. While Lenzen plans to stay on with the society in a minor

capacity and work on some smaller projects, she’s planning to retire from her governance roles once her term as provincial chairwoman runs out May 25. “It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years,” she says. “It’s flown by. I would say to anybody who wants to get involved in a volunteer role, start small as I did. If it’s something

The two- and five-kilometre routes are fully accessible to wheelchairs, scooters and strollers. Scooters will be available for use by participants and HandyDART will pick up people who only want to walk a portion of the course. A host of family-friendly activities will follow and current MS research will be shared. Among those scheduled to participate is Success MS, a North Shore-based self-help group that Lenzen helped found. The team has participated in the event for the last 10 years and has raised more than $300,000 for the society. “For me I believe you plant the seed and you make the seed grow,” says Lenzen. “And that’s what I like to do, I like to get things started and I like to get more people involved.” For more information on the MS Society, visit mssociety. ca.

hockey, to cheer for our team,” he says. The video (viewable at features interviews with Rwandan children about hockey. When Koop asked which team they were rooting for, all except one — a young boy named Magnifique — chose the Canucks. However, as the video continues, Magnifique’s loyalty is swayed and he joins his exuberant peers in the popular chant: “Go Canucks go!” The video has been picked up by CTV, Sportsnet and earned a story on the Canucks’ website. It’s also been viewed by some of the players themselves. “I sent it to my friend Brian and he knows Henrik Sedin personally and so he sent it to Henrik and Henrik texted him back and said ‘I love it!’ And he said, ‘I’m going to send it to all the guys on the team. They’ve all got to see this,’” says Koop. Over a week old, the video has garnered more than 4,500 Vimeo views and counting. Not just about hockey, the video is representative of Koop’s goal of forging connections between local youth and those in need, both in their own community and elsewhere around the world. “I really think that our students are amazing and they have real empathy and compassion for people. . . .,” he says. “We have a huge responsibility as individuals to find our own way of looking out for the needs of others and fighting for justice

YOUTH Unlimited’s Mark Koop (left) helps raise awareness of the eighth annual CityFest youth event, presented by a variety of local organizations, and featuring live entertainment, a skateboard competition, a barbecue and other festivities, May 5 in the Centennial Theatre parking lot and adjacent skate park, from noon to 4 p.m. for people locally and globally.” Youth Unlimited is a nonprofit, non-denominational Christian organization that mentors youth, ages 13-19, across the Lower Mainland through a variety of programs. Its mission is to transform a generation, from the inside out and Youth Unlimited often partners with other community groups that share its focus on teens. “We give youth the opportunity to explore what it means to be a whole person — so physically, emotionally, mentally and

spiritually as well,” says Koop. “We find that kids don’t often have places to discuss things like that, especially when it comes to spirituality. . . . We help provide that and look at who we are as human beings in a holistic way.” Participation in programs is open to teens from all religions and backgrounds, ranging from those who are marginalized to community leaders. By bringing both groups together, Koop sees a huge learning opportunity, with each having

a unique perspective that can inspire the other. Youth Unlimited offers a number of programs on the North Shore, including a weekly skateboard club that tours different skate parks. Through working with the skateboard community, Koop helped launch CityFest, an annual festival in its eighth year, presented by youth for youth, with the support of countless community partners that have since come on board.

According to numerous sources including www., there are many cancer causing ingredients, such as parabens being used in modern skincare. People have become concerned aboutwhattheirskinisabsorbing from beauty products. For over 15 years Nature’s Creations has been committed to educating consumers on the hazards of toxic synthetic ingredients in skin care products. “It’s very serious, and women are starting to take it seriously” says Suzanne Laurin-Seale of Nature’s Creations Aromatherapy. “The average North American woman exposes herself to over 200 synthetic toxic chemicals a day.” Buyer Beware.

Fat fighting miracle procedure revealed by Dr. Oz Medicine is exploring a new frontier when it comes to fighting fat. Is a new procedure that can help you lose up to 11 inches in only 2 weeks right for you? In May of 2011, the popular TV show‘Dr Oz’reviewed the Zerona laser with practitioner Dr. Heskett of New York City. Dr. Oz’s enthusiasm for the Zerona body sculpting laser treatment was quite apparent.

“What if I told you that this cutting edge device can melt inches off your waist and keep them off for good?” “What if I told you that this cutting edge device can melt inches off your waist and keep them off for good? Today I’ll show you live on the air the miracle procedure to melt fat without undergoing the knife”stated Dr. Oz. What Dr. Oz and his audience found out that day was the Zerona laser is a painless, nonsurgical procedure that easily releases fat from your body in as little as two weeks with zero side effects. The program requires at least 6 treatments which are done every other day for two

weeks – Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for example. It’s a relaxing experience. Most patients just read, listen to music or have a cat nap. Each session takes 40 minutes to complete. The laser light is applied to the targeted area – which is generally a combination of the waist, hips, and thighs – for 20 minutes. You then turn over and the same treatment is applied to the opposite side. The minimum suggested treatment period is two weeks, depending on your personal goals and current health. As a starting point you get a free consultation visit with the doctor to determine a

would lose as few as 3 inches and as many as 11 inches in two weeks.

On the Dr. Oz show, a patient of Dr. Heskett’s was interviewed. Catherine, a 48 year old, said she had tried everything and nothing seemed to work. Like many Zerona patients, she had a healthy lifestyle but over the years a pound or two started to add up.

Today this treatment is available on the North Shore via the Laser Body Sculpting Clinic at North Vancouver’s Foundation for Integrated Health. Conveniently located at #200-123 Carrie Cates Court at Londsale Quay, they’re close to bus routes and plenty of parking.

Excited Catherine laid on the table and Dr. Heskett said even though they were just focusing the laser on her belly she was going to lose inches everywhere because the fat cells have the capacity to communicate with each other. Heskett guaranteed she

North Shore teens headed to Africa in July From page 19

This year’s is set for May 5, from noon to 4 p.m. in North Vancouver’s Centennial Theatre parking lot and adjacent skate park. The event will feature a skateboard competition, entertainment, art displays and a barbecue. Youth Unlimited also offers an annual road trip skateboard camp dubbed Road Rage, conducts ongoing work in local schools (including Keith Lynn Alternate secondary), and helps run a youth group at North Shore Alliance Church that has a strong focus on community and global service projects. A major focus for Youth Unlimited is its ongoing Rwanda initiative, entitled The Elevation Project. Since 2007, the organization has had a partnership with Kigali Christian School (KCS) and Rwanda Youth For Christ. A sponsorship program was created, seeing Lower Mainland families commit to sponsoring 140 children who had previously been unable to attend KCS due to their financial situation. Since 2008, Youth Unlimited has taken a group of Lower Mainland students every other year to volunteer at the school, assisting with a variety of projects, from school renovations, to building houses and fixing roads. “When we take kids to Rwanda, it opens their eyes to the whole issue of poverty and poverty on every level,” says Koop. “It’s not just about their finances and about economics, it’s also about poverty of spirit and poverty of lack of relationship and lack of community. . . . Rwandans are quite rich in some areas that we’re very poor in, like the way they care for one another. They’re very rich in that. They really look out for each other’s needs in ways that we’re afraid to do. . . . . When kids are exposed to that in Rwanda, it changes the way they look at relationships and how they interact with people in their community here.” A group of 14 youth, 10 of whom are North Shore residents, will be in Africa, July 16-Aug. 6, to help run camps. The Elevation Project has made a strong impression on past participants. For example, two North Shore Grade 12 students, Chris Vanderkooy and Peter Wilton, who attended the 2010 Rwandan trip, have since launched a tie-dye T-shirt initiative, Make A Difference Or Dye Tieing (, with funds supporting KCS’ meal program, Food For Thought. “They’re raised, literally, thousands of dollars. . . They just do that on their own time and are really, truly, making a difference,” says Koop. “There is a culture here of young people that really do care about the needs of others,” he adds.

Insight into the cycle of life guides volunteer FRANKIE Hester returned to the North Shore to begin her new life.

Retired from a career in health care, she was free to focus on family, art and her vocation as a palliative care and hospice volunteer. She was born Frances Mulcahy in 1943. For the first two years of her life, the family lived in wartime housing in North Vancouver where her father, whose heart condition kept him from active service, worked at Burrard Dry Dock. In 1945, for $500, her parents bought a house on 29th Avenue in East Vancouver. “It was bush,” she recalls, “and dairy farms where Burnaby General Hospital is now. Our neighbour had an apple orchard. I remember his horse would step up onto the porch for his daily apple.” Hester remembers losses, too. “We weren’t allowed to cry when my grandfather died and we didn’t go to his funeral,” she says. When she was 21, her father died in her arms at the breakfast table. “I always thought if I had some understanding of what death meant, I wouldn’t have been so frightened,” she says. Hester trained as a licensed practical nurse, working at Saint Paul’s and later, as

Memory Lane

Laura Anderson a pharmacy technician at Chilliwack Hospital. Back then, Hester’s volunteer focus was on fundraising. She was the top fundraiser for the Chilliwack Hospice five years running. As a frontline health care worker, Hester knew that time is scarce in a hospital, meted out task by task and that treatment must take priority over compassion. She began to volunteer her time and her training to therapeutic and healing touch in the chemotherapy ward, helping to ease the harsh effects of the drugs she dispensed. For the terminally ill, she gave the gifts of comfort and attention. “For a volunteer, time doesn’t count. If it takes an entire shift to help someone eat a meal, that’s OK. When a person needs that human

contact, we have all the time in the world. When people come to the end of life, we can help them into a deep, relaxed place where they can slip away. Something profound happens and it is a privilege to share in it,” she says. When she settled in West Vancouver after her retirement, Hester joined the volunteers at North Shore Palliative and Supportive Care. Training for palliative care and hospice volunteers on the North Shore is comprehensive and thorough. After initial training, new members are matched with mentors and introduced into the program. Education is continuous for all volunteers, through regular meetings, training and learning sessions. Above all, they are guided to learn what all of us would do well to understand: that the end of life belongs to the cycle of life. It is a passage to be embraced, not feared or avoided. Hester concurs. “It’s a privilege to be able to do this work,” she says. “Until you’ve been there, you can have no idea how rewarding it can be.” She is as enthusiastic about her fellow volunteers as she is about their contribution. “The gift of volunteering is the association with like-minded people. Being in a room full of people who share the same passion is an amazing,

energizing experience. It’s very special,” she says. Hester found another group of like-minded friends and colleagues and a second vocation as a stained glass artist. In the sacred room at the hospice, a butterfly made of stained glass floats in a window, a gift from Hester. That butterfly, a symbol of transformation and the unofficial emblem of the hospice community, led others, with the proceeds from Hester’s commissions supporting volunteer education at the hospice. At the North Shore Palliative and Supportive Volunteer Appreciation ceremony on April 16, the award of appreciation went to Frankie Hester and to Ruth Gilewich for their dedication and commitment during the previous year. Earlier that day, Hester had been in the stained glass studio at the West Vancouver Recreation Centre, putting the finishing touches on her newest butterfly. In Frankie Hester’s gifted hands, heat, glass and metal are transformed into art. Under her care, and that of her fellow volunteers, weary spirits find peace. For more information about the North Shore Palliative and Supportive Care volunteer program, call volunteer program manager Janet Quenneville at 604-984-5951.

■ Transparency in fees Lori Pinkowski Hidden fees are a major irritation for investors. Clients are not always provided with an explanation of the fees they will incur. I feel it is very important that clients have the complete picture. If your advisor didn’t provide you with a detailed breakdown of the fees you are paying, ask for it now. ■ Lack of communication Some financial advisors only speak to their clients once a year; typically at RRSP time or an annual review. Make sure that your advisor or their team is communicating with you on a more regular basis with market updates and portfolio reviews. It is impossible to effectively manage a client’s portfolio if your advisor doesn’t know what is going on in your life, so it is important to stay in touch.

■ Lack of product knowledge A financial advisor may think they are working in your best interest, but may fail to fully understand the product and the risks associated with it. This can be very dangerous for the investor who is relying on the advisor’s knowledge. If an advisor is recommending something besides a stock, bond or GIC, ask questions about the product. If they can’t explain it in layman’s terms it might be best to stay away from it. If you don’t understand it, don’t invest in it. Investors should be aware of these issues to ensure their portfolios are being handled the best way possible. Lori Pinkowski is a portfolio manager and senior vice president, private client group, at Raymond James Ltd., a member Canadian Investor Protection Fund. She can answer any questions at 604-915LORI or You can also listen to her every Friday on CKNW at 5:35 p.m.

■ Hiding poor performance It is important to keep informed on the performance of your portfolio. Your portfolio performance can be skewed by showing favourable returns during certain periods. There are standard times to report returns, such as; year to date, since inception, calendar year returns and one year returns. ■ Failure to understand the client Investors are individuals; just because you are at a certain age or stage in life doesn’t mean that you should be cookie cut into a certain investor type. We have clients in their 70s who don’t want to own bonds and would rather be weighted in dividend paying stocks. Alternatively, there are clients in their 50s who don’t like fluctuations in their portfolio and would be better suited to investing in bonds and GIC’s. If you are uncomfortable in the stock market and choose to liquidate your portfolio, I believe that you should not be forced to stay invested.

HARD to believe, but it’s barely 20 months since former BCWI director Christine Coletta and husband Steve Lornie — along with an extended family of industry heavy hitters — unveiled their Haywire Winery. A recent visit to the newly completed building and Switchback home vineyard, nestled in the hills above Summerland, offered a chance to catch up on the veritable whirlwind of activity that envelopes Okanagan Crush Pad, the ingenious business model that the team has developed in conjunction with the winery. OCP already has no fewer than 90 wines under its belt, ranging from the home team’s Haywire wines to the increasingly popular “BS” range from winemaker Michael Bartier and David Scholefield, to Bartier Brothers “Cowboy” and “Goal” to any number of smaller but noteworthy projects. Tastes (among many) that caught our attention included a couple of very drinkable drops that will be showing up soon (including on tap) in selected Cactus Clubs. “Feenie goes Haywire” is a nod to Cactus Club head chef Rob Feenie’s longtime friendship with Coletta. Look for an easy quaffing, food-friendly 80/20 Gewurz/Chardonnay white

WINEMAKER Michael Bartier checks out Kurtis labels. blend, and a well structured but still approachable 2008 Meritage red blend, that gets a nice lift from a portion of 2010 Pinot Noir. Also just bottled (though not yet released) is the first wine from Kamloops’ Harper’s Trail, a zesty, lemon-lime and mineral-toned Riesling from the vineyard on the north bank of the Thompson that should evolve nicely. One of the more intriguing projects is a co-pro between Okanagan Crush Pad and ever-talented 2010 Vancouver Sommelier of the Year Kurtis Kolt. Clean and crisp, with orange and sage aromas and citrus on the palate, coolpackaged “Kurtis” 2011 wild ferment Semillon, from near Oliver, is a keeper, literally, that will develop significantly over the next couple of years. “We wanted it to be ‘Hunteresque,’ ” (as in Hunter Valley style), says Bartier, and that it is. The wine is made under OKCP’s Wine Campus mentorship

program that includes a $5,000 annual scholarship to BC Hospitality Foundation for wine studies; and invites the winning sommelier to make 100 cases of their own wine. Meanwhile, Haywire continues to focus on the development of its own vineyard with noted Italian viticulturalist and consultant Alberto Antonini — and Bartier is increasingly amazed at the role played by Crush Pad’s egg-shaped, concrete fermenters, that “literally get a current going during fermentation, that contributes to the lees character of the wine.” Haywire 2011 Pinot Gris, after citrus and flint on the nose, yields upfront lemon notes on the palate with definite mineral and zest through the well backboned palate to its lengthy, dry close. A sure sign of more good things to come; $23 From the winery (order on line). MidMay release. Much more to come on OKCP’s various projects.

On the Crystal Serenity the butler does it Staff are on-call 24/7 to pamper guests on Mediterranean cruise Mitchell Smyth Contributing Writer

ABOARD CRYSTAL SERENITY— Cruise lines pamper their passengers. But for some, routine pampering isn’t enough. They want the royal treatment. That’s where Ural Korkmaz and his team come in.

photo Mitchell Smyth/Meridian Writers’ Group

URAL Korkmaz, head butler, serves canapés to a guest on board Crystal Serenity. The butlers are on call 24 hours a day for penthouse guests on the luxury cruise line’s two ships.

Maximum of $40 savings are with a combination of BCAA Advantage Auto Insurance and BCAA Advantage Home Insurance. Savings are on an annual basis and will be pro-rated when added mid-term.

Korkmaz is head butler on the Serenity, which is itself at the high end of the cruise market. He and his seven associates — and a parallel team on sister ship Crystal Symphony — make sure that the people who occupy the luxury penthouses want for nothing. I can vouch for their service, for I was fortunate enough to get upgraded to a penthouse on a Mediterranean voyage. (Penthouse accommodation with butlers doesn’t come cheap. Top rate for, say, a 12-day cruise is about $30,000. But you can sail for much less, even on Crystal. That same 12-day cruise in the bottom category — no butler, of course — comes in at about $4,500.) “We’re on call 24 hours a day,” Korkmaz told me as he and Mahir, our personal butler, escorted my wife and me to our suite, the size of a small condo apartment (sitting room, bedroom, bar, verandah) at the beginning of the voyage from Rome to Barcelona. Every morning Mahir (he preferred no other name, the way butlers do) would ask if there was anything he could do to make our cruise better. Every afternoon he appeared with canapés. And always he stressed that he was just a touch of the bell away. To be honest, we didn’t call on him much. We didn’t even let him unpack for us. But other passengers expect more. They want their man to lay out their clothes (casual in the morning maybe, elegant for afternoon tea and formal for dinner), shine their shoes, do their laundry, organize their shore excursions. Maybe you want a little pre-dinner cocktail party or a nightcap with friends you’ve met on board. Your butler will arrange the drinks and the hors d’oeuvres and be on hand to serve. A good butler remembers not just his guests, but their likes and dislikes: how much popcorn they like when watching a video, who wants to chat and who prefers to be left alone. Repeat guests often ask for the same butler. On occasion, Crystal’s butlers have been so well liked that guests have hired them permanently. “Ask and we’ll obey,” is the motto, no matter how wacky the request. For instance, “on an Alaska cruise a guest wanted to go by helicopter on to a glacier,” Korkmaz tells me. “We arranged it. Then he asked for a butler to come to the glacier and serve him chilled champagne. We obliged.” Another time a passenger wanted to swim with sharks in the South Pacific. Korkmaz set it up. The butlers all come up through the ranks, mostly from wait staff. Korkmaz’s career is typical. He joined Crystal in 1995 as an assistant waiter. His enthusiasm was soon noted and the company sent him to a school run by Ivor Spencer, one-time butler at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. It’s hard to imagine a better pedigree.

Support animal welfare groups WHENEVER I walk up to the doors of my local animal shelter to make a food donation, tears begin welling up in my eyes and a big lump forms in my throat.

I know what I am going to see when I go in: frantic, desperate faces seeking attention, leadership, love . . . a forever home. I imagine the sense of abandonment they felt when their humans let them down and dumped them off at the shelter. My heart breaks for them. I’m not sure if it’s courage, fear or indifference one has as they drop their pet off at a shelter. Whatever it may be, it’s what’s inside the heart of the staff at the local shelter and those of private rescue groups that matter. Often the surrendered dog is despondent, afraid, confused, and in some cases, aggressive, due to their circumstances. The rescue staff help these dogs overcome the stressful situation of being abandoned by their pack. It is still an unfortunate circumstance that shelters and rescue groups are needed to help take in unwanted, abandoned and abused pets. We all wish for a time

when they weren’t needed any longer but I sometimes wonder what would happen if all shelters and rescue groups just disappeared overnight. Would this trigger a sudden sense of responsibility in those dog owners lacking it, now that they know there was no longer a “backup plan” if Fido didn’t work out? The fact of the matter is municipal shelters and private rescue groups are still needed. We are all familiar with our local animal shelters. If you have never adopted from one you may be making donations of food to them to show your support for the work that they do. If you don’t show your appreciation

by making some donation, then get off your duff and do it! Even though they may be funded by local government budgets they still are in need of support, be it food or financial. Private rescues are another form of pet adoption and they fill a huge void in the adoption of recycled dogs. They have the ability to foster, train, screen potential owners and rehome dogs in forever homes with a very big success rate, due to their smaller and more personal approach to rescuing and rehoming dogs. Being private organizations they are usually self-funded, with budgets provided from what is left of an average take-home paycheque once bills have been paid. They subsidize their funds with things like photos of Santa during Christmas, bake sales at local pet stores and adoption fees to name a few. If these private rescues did not exist, local shelters would be overloaded with pets and I’m sure routine euthanasia of surrendered pets would be reinstated. Supporting them, even if you never plan on

using them, is essential. Their work is directly responsible for saving the lives of many unwanted pets. At times it can be a bit more challenging to adopt from a private rescue but you have to remember that they have a huge emotional attachment to the rescued dogs. Just remember that they are all trying to do the best job they can in an area of animal care that can be terribly heart wrenching. In recognition of their efforts pet stores such as Bosleys often take donations of food, toys, dog beds etc. to be donated to private rescues. They also take financial donations by allowing customers to purchase “paws” of monetary value. This month in particular is Pet Appreciation Month at Bosleys. You can donate at the store or online with food, toys or cash and the proceeds will go to local rescues. Even if you never plan on using the services of a shelter or private rescue organization — in the form of adopting a dog — it is in every dog’s best interest to show support by making a donation to help them continue the muchneeded service they provide.

It all adds up.

Who’s fittest in the world? Rugby

Crossfit Games put fitness freaks to the test Andy Prest

WEST Vancouver’s Richard Roston hates burpees.

Who wouldn’t? Get down on your belly, face pressed to the ground, then clamber up to your feet and jump up into the air. Then drop right down onto your face again and do it all over. “Burpees are just gassing,” says Roston. “There’s nothing nice about them.” There he was a month ago, however, ripping off burpees for seven straight minutes at Evolution gym in West Vancouver while a crowd of onlookers cheered him on. It obviously wasn’t just for fun — burpees was workout No. 1 of the 2012 Crossfit Open Games, a unique event that allows athletes from around the world to compete against each other in identical fitness workouts. Five different tasks are introduced over a five-week stretch and competitors have a short window to complete each workout — verified either by a certified trainer or through video review — and submit their results to a website that tallies up the scores in categories ranging from open male and female up to age 60+ masters.

Roston finished second in the world in the 55-59 age group. pretty good up until about the four minute mark, five minute mark — you can keep it pretty steady. But at that point everyone hits the wall and it’s just a matter of whatever you can do to keep getting up and jumping each time.” Over the following four weeks other workouts tested the world’s fitness freaks, including such favourites as powerlifting, box jumps, wall balls, jump rope doubleunders, and pull-ups, some done on their own and others as part of a set of tasks to be repeated over and over. When the weeks were up Roston was the top Canadian finisher and second in the world in the 55-59 age group. North Vancouver’s Terry Peters finished 15th in the world in the same category and West Vancouver’s Troy Straith placed seventh in the world in the 50-54 age group. Finishing inside the top-20 in the world has earned all three athletes a ticket to the World Crossfit Games scheduled for July 13-15 in Carson City, Calif.

national team to play in Burnaby Andy Prest

NORTH Shore players should feature prominently when the Canadian senior men’s rugby team takes on Georgia in an exhibition match scheduled for Saturday, June 23, at Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium. Three players with ties to the North Shore’s Capilano Rugby Club — North Vancouver native Jason Marshall, West Vancouver’s RyanHamiltonandSquamish’s Jamie Cudmore — all suited up for the national team for last year’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. The roster for the Georgia match has not been set but head coach Kieran Crowley said he will have most of the country’s best players available to him for the contest. “It’s always great to have a quality team coming to Canada to play us,” Crowley said at a press conference introducing the event. “It gives us the opportunity to perform at home in front of our supporters and carry on the momentum that was created by the 2011 World Cup coverage.” Marshall, who parlayed his strong play at the World Cup into a pro contract in France, was also on hand to create some buzz for the game against Georgia. “Being from B.C., having the opportunity to play here, play over in Europe and now to be back is always a great feeling,” said Marshall. “I get to play against an international opponent not only in my home country but right in my own backyard. I think the crowd will be amazing and I am really looking forward to it.” The last time the two teams met Georgia claimed the win. Canada is currently ranked 13th in the world while Georgia is right behind them in 15th spot.

Three North Shore masters headed to World Games From page 34

is the managing editor of the North Shore News. “Terry’s nickname is Bull because he’s a bull of the woods, he won’t stop,” says Roston with a laugh. “He just keeps on going no matter what.” Roston’s day job is as a dentist. He’s practiced out of an office in Park Royal Shopping Centre for the past 20 years. Both Roston and Peters came to Crossfit after years spent in martial arts — pursuits that led to some questions from Roston’s dental patients. “I think they kept an eye on me once I started the martial arts and I used to come in with my black eyes — they were kind of wondering what that was about,” he says. “But my patients are very supportive. They know what I’m doing and I get a lot of encouragement when they come in. It’s exciting.” Other North Shore athletes in the open male and female categories will get a chance to join the three masters at the World Games by competing in the Canada West Games scheduled for April 27-29 at the Richmond Olympic Oval. For that event the top-60 Open Games competitors from British Columbia to Manitoba will battle it out for two berths in the World Games. The Canada West Games are the big show for most local Crossfit competitors, says Dave Kitchen, the owner of Deep Cove’s Pure Athletics gym who is also in charge of running next weekend’s event at the Oval. Spectators are encouraged to come and watch the family-friendly action with tickets costing $25 for the weekend or $10 per day. On the men’s side Corey Auger, Mike Waugh and Scott Tasaka from the North Shore will all be competing at the Canada West Games while on the women’s side Mandy Gill, Kaitlyn Chernomas, Ainslie Kehler and Romayne Stewart have all qualified for the regional. The strength of the crossfit games lies in its inclusiveness and communal spirit, says Kitchen. That will be on display next weekend at the Oval. “I don’t know any other athletic sport where, when the

athletes are competing . . . and one of them finishes first and they’ve won, they then go over and cheer on the other people, like right in their face, to coach them and encourage them to come in sixth place or 10th place or 20th place,” says Kitchen. “It’s all about everybody succeeding.” The sport’s exploding popularity validates those philosophies. Approximately 25,000 logged on to register their scores for last year’s Open Games. This year the number was around 68,000. ESPN will livestream the World Games on their website and provide television coverage for some of the events. “People are starting to move away from traditional forms of exercise because they need more support — going and doing things by yourself is not a lot of fun,” says Kitchen. “The idea with crossfit is that anyone can do it. Everything we do, although some of it may be difficult, is scaleable to the individual. We don’t want it to be based on what people can afford or how far people live away from gyms.”

There’s also, obviously, the fitness benefits. “I think I’m probably in the best shape I’ve ever been in,” 58year-old Roston says. “With Crossfit you can actually go full-out, and are encouraged to go full-out, every time you do a workout. It’s quite challenging to be able to put everything you’ve got into it, every single day you go out. It’s a bit of a rush.” The Crossfit movement, particularly the Games, has some lofty goals. “They’ve got some buzz words for it, but basically it’s ‘who can do the most work over varying distances and times?’” says Roston. “What they’re really trying to test for, eventually — and this is what the games are aimed at — is finding the fittest man and woman in the world. That’s one of the reasons it’s so inclusive this time, trying to get everybody involved.” For more information on the Crossfit World Games, Open Games and Canada West Games visit the website games.crossfit. com.

BOUCHARD, Pierre - Paul (Paul) Passed away unexpectedly but peacefully in his sleep after a short illness. Born in Ste. Lucesur-Mer, Que´bec, a long-time resident of Niagara on the Lake, Ontario and most recently of West Vancouver. Paul is survived by his wife of 50 years Doris, his children Marc, Shawn (Jessica) and grandson Jack. He also leaves behind two brothers and three sisters and many nieces and nephews. To say Paul loved cars doesn’t capture his passion for the automobile. Cars were in his blood. He sold, fixed, collected, built, raced and dreamed of them. He was also a long-time employee of General Motors in St. Catharines, ON, retiring in 1993. If you ever saw a man sitting atop a 50-foot TV antenna that was likely Paul. As owner/operator of Paul’s TV & Antenna—a successful electronics sales and repair business—he put up hundreds of towers around Niagara. He reluctantly subscribed to cable only after moving to BC. Paul had a natural ability to do anything he set his mind to, including building two houses with his beloved T-Love, fixing electronics or appliances or adding custom body work to his Toronado. From foundation-to-finish he did it all proudly himself and even worked through a broken back to finish the plumbing on his second house. He will be remembered for his gentle nature, witty sense of humour, the twinkle in his eye, his love of music (there was always a radio playing somewhere) and his dedication to friends and neighbours. If you ever needed an extra set of hands around the house Paul was there to help with a great big smile. The family wishes to thank Dr. Bayfield, Dr. Byman and the nurses at Lions Gate Hospital. In lieu of flowers donations to Lions Gate Hospital or a charity of your choice. For those wishing to share a memory of Paul, please visit

DOODSON, Charles ' Chuck' William

May 5th, 1918 - April 15th, 2012 Passed away peacefully early Sunday morning April 15, 2012 just three weeks shy of his 94th birthday. What a life! What a man! Chuck carried an unbridled appreciation for life and devoted respect for all he shared his with. Enthusiastic, compassionate, understanding, loving and determined are just a few of the words that best describe our beloved and unforgettable Chuck; a very elegant, considerate and charming man. We marvel at his honourable Air Force service record, his successful 50+ year career with Cunningham Drug Stores & Shoppers Drug Mart, his ability to play handball until the age of 86 (did I say determined?!); and took comfort from the music he shared through his beautiful piano playing. Most admirable of all was the loyalty and the never wavering love he offered his family and friends unconditionally. What a rock. Chuck will be sadly missed but loved and honoured forever by surviving family, friends and former colleagues. Predeceased by parents Bill & Edith, wife Josephine, son Terry, 2nd wife Gladys and sister Vera. Lovingly survived by his daughter Joanne & husband Bob, grandchildren Samantha & Max, son Michael & wife Robin, grandchildren Sophia & Anna. Funeral service will be held Tuesday April 24th @ 11am at St. Stephens Catholic Church located on the corner of East 24th St & Mountain Hwy, North Vancouver. Reception to follow in the parish hall. In lieu of flowers Chuck has requested a donation to Lions Gate Hospital or the charity of your choice. Thanks for the ride Dad. We love you.

CAMPBELL, Charles C. Oct 04, 1916 - Mar 13, 2012 Charles Clunas was born in Sandon, B.C. He spent his childhood in Nelson then, in the 20’s, the family moved to Vancouver where, after working a few years in Ocean Falls, he joined his father and his brother Ken in the hotel business. After serving as a signalman in Italy during WW II, he returned from Europe and settled with his new bride Eileen into their log home in West Vancouver where, until Eileen’s passing last June, they shared treasured years with their family and friends. Charlie was a most convivial acquaintance, a reliable tennis partner, a tireless open-water swimmer, a faithful friend, and an awesome "Poppa". And he was a man of uncommon generosity. Two of his favoured charities were The Lions Gate Hospital and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. He will be remembered dearly by his children Sheila Johnston (David), Ken (Michelle), Laurene Nowak (Alain) and Charlie (Gillian); his grandchildren Sean (Stephanie), Devin (Sabrina), Heather, Scott, Micaela (Lee), Brock (Kathy), Charlie, Emily, Emma (Mitch), Madeleine (Tim), and Hannah (Spencer); and his great-grandchildren Kael, Nicholas and Hilah. As requested by Charlie, there will not be a service.

On April 10, 2012 at the age of 84, Al died peacefully, surrounded by his children in North Vancouver. Predeceased by his wife Barbara in 2009, Al is survived by daughters Nancy & Mary and sons Rod (Fredi) & Alex (Bev), grandchildren Henry, Anthony, Heidi, Jillian and cousin Allison Burnet. Al was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and raised in Nova Scotia; he was always proud of his Scottish roots. Al served with the 15th Field Artillery Reserve and graduated from the University of Toronto. He moved to Vancouver in the mid 1950s where he met and married H. Barbara Stuart and they settled in North Vancouver. After a successful career in sales, Al opted to be the boss and opened his own business in 1974. Brico International was a specialty hardware importing/distribution company with a vast portfolio of products. This business saw Al traveling, which he greatly enjoyed, to Europe and Japan in search of new products and maintaining business relationships. Al hosted a yearly dinner party at the Park Royal Hotel for his inner circle where he would surpass the previous year’s menu in some exotic nature. Always opinionated and boisterous, Al loved his family and friends. We wish to thank Dr. Dana Haaf and the staff at 2 North, Evergreen House for the excellent care and kindness. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

BEDARD, Robert Henry Noel (Bob)

December 20, 1922 – April 8, 2012 Passed away peacefully at his home in West Vancouver, Easter Sunday, April 8th, 2012 in his 90th year. Predeceased by his wife, Bettie in May 2004, his brother, Maurice and his two sisters, Florence and Henriette. Survived by his two children, Leslie MacLean and Greg (Shawna) Bedard, five grandsons, Scott, Ryan and Trevor MacLean and Braden and Mitchell Bedard. Bob’s heritage was French Canadian and he was born, raised and educated in Winnipeg, Manitoba. During the Depression he took an evening job as a delivery boy for a local pharmacy; he was 13 years old. After high school he joined the Air Force. It was during wartime in 1942 that he was stationed in Kitsilano. He always hoped to return to Vancouver. When the war ended, Bob took Pharmacy at the University of Winnipeg. He graduated in 1948. He then moved to Calgary as a pharmaceutical sales rep for the company, Merck. It was at this time that he fell in love and married his beautiful wife, Bettie. Soon after, Bob was transferred and the two moved to Toronto. This was where Leslie was born. Bob and his family were then transferred to Lachine, Quebec where Greg was born. They lived in Lachine for five years, when they were eventually transferred to Vancouver in 1960. Bob decided to pursue his pharmaceutical skills when he opened up his first drugstore in a medical building in New Westminster (1966). This store became one of seven stores, all called Regency Prescriptions. He loved working for himself and proved to be quite an astute businessman. He expanded his business to include a wholesale drug business and then finally focusing on only medical supplies. He bought an acre of land at Willingdon and Canada Way in 1983 and has operated a successful medical supply company called Regency Medical Supplies. His son, Greg is now running the family business. Bob’s greatest passions were his family, his work and his garden. He will be dearly missed. The family would like to thank his caregivers, Leizel of 2½ years and Greatchin of one year. Leizel worked tirelessly during the last months of his life. Grateful thanks also to his longtime family doctor and friend, George Chalmers and his palliative doctor, Dr. Paul Sugar and the nurses and care aides who also were so good to him. A Celebration of his Life was held at Hollyburn Funeral Home, 1807 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, B.C. on Saturday April 21st, 2012 at 11:00am. Interment will take place on Monday April 23rd, 2012 at 11:00am. For those wishing to share a memory of Bob, please go to Hollyburn Funeral Home 604-922-1221

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Chase money. Your work efforts yield extra cash – try to turn any monetary increase into a permanent situation – e.g., a pay raise is better than some overtime. The entire month ahead features buying, selling, possessions, memory, rote learning and sensual links. If you’re married, you and your spouse face a friendly, pleasant time together, through July. If single, romance is (will be) light, friendly, casual, same period – though it won’t survive if it starts before Thursday. Home, security and property values concern you Thursday/Friday. Romance, creativity Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, charm, clout and effectiveness reach a yearly height this week and the next few. Start important projects, and tackle chores or meetings that have intimidated you – you’ll succeed.Your money luck looks buoyant now to early August. If you’re unemployed, the months ahead are an excellent interval to look for work. I’ve called this your lucky year, yet many of you have faced upheaval – in there lies the purest good luck. Chase money carefully Monday, confidently Tuesday. A love link might be strained midweek. Talk, travel Thursday/Friday. Home, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Retreat, rest, now to May 19 (especially Sunday). You will continue to be attractive to the opposite sex (for 14 months) but your energy and pizzazz are low through the few weeks ahead. This is nature’s time for healing, recuperation and spiritual contact. Be charitable, visit old friends, interface with government. These weeks can present you with good investment opportunities – AFTER Wednesday – especially if you keep these key words in mind: retreat, security, safety. You shine Monday/ Tuesday. Overcome a domestic liability. Organize your money chaos Thursday. Joy, Saturday!

April 22 - 28, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Ah, sweet romance! The weeks ahead feature love, pleasure, selfexpression, beauty, winning gambles, and joys with children. There is talk of endings, or of security, home, foundations. Your work scene is pleasant; co-workers are affectionate, into early August. Take advantage of this not to work harder, but to gain a little rest – your chores will multiply from June onward. Your best rest during the month ahead will be adventure, love’s escapades, and creative involvements. Sunday’s loving. Tackle chores Monday to Tuesday. Relationships excite, and challenge, Thursday/Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead feature endings and new beginnings, grand luck in real estate, therapies that give you new hope (especially family-oriented counselling, or therapies for digestion). Luck soars in security, retirement and similar zones. You might end a relationship, perhaps with an entire group. You’re pruning your social tree. Sunday’s restful; be home or in nature. Romance, creativity and speculation call Monday to Wednesday, but go slow: a secret factor might “crush” a friend’s or lover’s feathers. Tackle chores – carefully – Thursday/ Friday. Friends, excitement Saturday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Discussions about money, perhaps with a partner or spouse, run into problems the first half of this week. But generally (Wednesday p.m. onward) the air clears and these talks can lead to a career advancement or upward status. You are favoured to buy real estate now to mid-2013, but until Aug. 30 traps and pitfalls exist, so go slow. (That upward status might occur via property: buying a more prestigious house.) Sunday’s restless, talkative, lucky. Home, kids, property occupy you Monday-Wednesday. Romance, creativity and a wee winning streak Thursday/Friday. Chores, Saturday. • Reading: 604-727-3673
