Olympic ticket scammer gets house arrest

Former WV man used Internet to sell prime tickets he never had for $60K Jane Seyd

A former West Vancouver man who promised people tickets to some of the most sought-after events at the 2010 Winter Olympics, then bilked them for more than $60,000 has been placed under a curfew for a year.

Judge Joanne Challenger handed the one-year conditional sentence to 33-yearold Sean Stuart on Wednesday after Stuart pleaded guilty to fraud over $5,000 in connection with the year-long scam. One California man lost $15,000 to Stuart. The other 25 people he scammed came from all over North America and lost amounts ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Crown prosecutor Jim Bird said for many of the people duped by Stuart, the scam wasn’t just about losing money — it was also about the disappointment of losing out on their Olympic dreams. Bird said Stuart launched his scam around the same time that official Olympic tickets went on sale — about a year before the games began in February 2010. Because See WV page 5

ADVENTURE racer Will Gadd tests out the course for the upcoming Red Bull Divide and Conquer race that will take place in North Vancouver June 16. The race will pit teams of three against each other on a multi-discipline course that will include trail running, mountain biking and whitewater kayaking, culminating in a ride down the Capilano River with the winner being the first one spit out into the ocean.

The pair were at home in the 5700-block of Bluebell Drive at about 8 p.m. when flames apparently broke out in a basement wall. The fire quickly spread upward through the two-storey post-and-beam structure. The victims had time to collect their dog and escape the house with the help of a neighbour before the space filled with smoke. West Vancouver firefighters arrived minutes later and set to dousing the growing blaze, but it was an hour before it was fully under control. “This was an extremely stubborn fire,” said assistant fire chief Martin Ernst. “It was lodged inside one of the walls. . . . It was very deep-seated in the basement level.” By the time the fire was out, the inside of the building had been all but destroyed, Ernst said. “The interior of the home is unusable. There’s not too much to salvage.” It remains to be seen whether the home will have to be torn down, he said. See Electrical page 5

Volunteer saviours

THEY’RE called out late at night and in all weather. They respond when a boater has gone aground, run out of fuel, or gotten lost. They’re there when lives are at risk, to search risky ocean waters, give CPR and first aid, and even perform the grim task of retrieving bodies. They do all this, and they do it for free. Once known as the Coast Guard Auxiliary, the volunteers who perform search and rescue missions along B.C.’s 27,000 kilometrelong coast have a new name they hope will earn them more recognition and help with fundraising. “One of our biggest difficulties was we were always in the public’s mind part of the Canadian Coast Guard, and they thought we were publicly funded,” said Dugal Purdie, station leader of the West Vancouver society (known as Station 1). “As long as that association was there, it really hindered us with our fundraising efforts.” Now known as the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue, the organization hopes the confusion will end. The North and West Vancouver societies went out on a combined 62 missions in 2011. Calls spike in the summer and on weekends, when pleasure boaters go out to explore the rugged coastline and small islands in Burrard Inlet, Indian Arm and Howe Sound. Purdie and Randy Strandt, president of the RCM-SAR and leader of the North Vancouver society, both remember dramatic rescues. Purdie recalled being called out on Thanksgiving Day in 2007 to search for a group of kayakers who had been caught in bad weather. Waves of up to two metres high had overturned two double kayaks. “Of the six people, four were brought back safely and two didn’t make it,” said Purdie. “We found the two, but they didn’t recover.” Strandt told of a 1999 accident off Point Atkinson during the fireworks festival, when a barge collided with a large pleasure boat. Of the 14 people on board the yacht, five died. “We were there doing CPR on three of the victims, trying to revive them,” said Strandt. “That sticks with you a little bit, because it wasn’t successful.” That the work can be dangerous struck home last weekend, when two RCM-SAR volunteers from Sechelt died in a training accident.

ROYAL Canadian Marine volunteers head out on a training run on West Vancouver’s new state-of-the-art rescue boat, the Craig Rea Spirit. It’s the first time in the history of the society that members have died while on duty. “We’re truly in a state of shock, just devastated and in disbelief,” said Strandt, adding that members of the organization are a closeknit group who often train together. “Right now our priority is on looking after the families of these women.” Four RCM-SAR volunteers were travelling through the dangerous Skookumchuck rapids on the Sunshine Coast when their inflatable boat overturned. Two were rescued by another RCMSAR boat that had been following behind the first vessel. But Angie Nemeth, 43, and Beatrice Sorensen, 51, were trapped underneath the craft and didn’t make it out. Strandt said Transport Canada and the Coast Guard will do a joint investigation of the accident. The Sechelt volunteers who were on the scene will also go through counselling sessions provided by the Coast Guard.

“We know that search and rescue has inherent risks, but we believe training and (safety) processes mitigate those risks,” said Strandt. The volunteer society works closely with the coast guard. But in the future, the West and North Vancouver stations expect to be doing more rescues, and may be on their own more often. That’s because the federal government has decided to close the Canadian Coast Guard base at Kitsilano to save money. “I don’t know exactly how many (more calls) or how that’s going to work, but I think we would certainly be seeing more call volume as a result,” said Strandt. Given the choice, Strandt would rather see more boats on the water, but he said the RCM-SAR will not be actively lobbying the federal government to keep the Kitsilano station open. (The coast guard base at Sea Island in Richmond will continue to operate.) “We’re in an awkward position,” said Strandt “We’re partners with the coast guard, including the management . . . we feel like we’re in the middle of it a little bit, to be honest. We’re trying to be as supportive as we can of the station and their members.” Purdie said the community-based volunteer societies would continue to do what they have done for 100 years: fill the gaps left by a limited number of coast guard stations on B.C.’s coast. “The reason this organization came into existence was because local communities had to be self-sufficient, because the coast guard wasn’t there,” said Purdie. On May 26, the RCM-SAR unveiled its new logo at the Horseshoe Bay pier. The event was also a chance to show off the West Vancouver society’s latest purchase, a bright yellow state-ofthe-art rescue boat, capable of turning on a dime and reaching speeds of 40 knots (about 64 kilometres per hour). At a cost of $500,000, the new vessel is also an illustration of the ongong need to raise funds. The 10 metre-long boat improves safety for the crew and for those needing to be rescued. It can right itself if it flips over in rough seas, and has two stretcher bays and life-saving equipment like defibrillators and a warm air system for treating hypothermia. RCM-SAR stations up and down the coast have been purchasing the same type of rescue vessel in an effort to standardize their fleet. The new ships replace boats that were only partially enclosed.

B.C. First Nations ink health pact

Natives get more say on shaping VCH services Jen St. Denis

B.C. First Nations hope an agreement signed with Vancouver’s health authority will give them more say in plans that affect the health of aboriginal people. Vancouver Coastal Health and the First Nations Health Authority signed the accord in

ceremonies, such as smudging, intosterilehospitalenvironments is one of the first things the two health authorities will be working on together, said Ted Bruce, executive director of population health at VCH. “It demonstrates such a dramatic change,” said Bruce. “If you think about it, hospitals are generally places where doctors and nurses and other health-care providers work, and having someone come in and do spiritual practices has not been very welcomed in the past.” The two health bodies will also be working on offering services that fit the community’s needs. In the past, said Bruce,

mid-May. It sets the stage for First Nations to make health decisions and not just give advice to VCH, as they have done in the past, said Leah George-Wilson, a former chief of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation and now a member of the First Nations Health Council. “Our First Nations people don’t get treated very well at our local hospital,” said GeorgeWilson, referring to Lions Gate Hospital. “We would like to build a relationship with Vancouver Coastal Health so we could make some changes so our people feel more comfortable in those institutions.” Incorporating spiritual

what Vancouver Coastal Health provided may not have lined up with what the community was asking for. “For example, we may have delivered a lot of mental-health and addiction services in a particular area,” said Bruce, “while the community itself may have wanted much more healthoriented prevention services.” The First Nations Health Authority was created in 2011 to address inconsistencies in health services for aboriginal people in B.C., which are funded and provided by a mix of federal, provincial and First Nations agencies. Currently, said GeorgeWilson, “money gets transferred

WV cop follows electronic trail to nab fraudster

Olympic tickets, while they booked flights and hotel reservations in Vancouver. Finally, in the days before the games actually began, Stuart sent out an email telling people that they wouldn’t be receiving their tickets because he hadn’t received them. In most cases, however, he had told his potential customers that he already had the tickets. Bird said all of the people Stuart scammed were very disappointed, because it was “very difficult or impossible” to replace the tickets they thought they’d bought. Most did eventually make it to some Olympic events, however. Stuart was tracked by a West Vancouver police officer who followed a complicated electronic and paper trail to find him. In handing down her sentence, Challenger said Stuart had “tarnished the ideal of the Olympics.” She handed Stuart a 12-month conditional sentence with a curfew of 9 p.m. and 100 hours of community work service. She also ordered Stuart to pay back the victims of his fraud.

From page 1

the tickets were sold through a lottery system, and not everyone who wanted tickets to events was able to get them, there was quite a secondary market for tickets, said Bird. Stuart advertised tickets to some of the top-flight Olympic events like the gold medal men’s hockey final, figure skating and the opening ceremonies on sites like Craigslist and Kijiji. At the time, a pair of tickets to the men’s hockey final were selling for up to $2,000. To convince people he actually had the tickets for sale, Stuart would get images from other legitimate ticket sellers on the Internet. The scam was quite detailed, said Bird, with Stuart going into the location of the seats in the various venues and haggling over the price. Stuart’s duped customers sent money to his bank account in West Vancouver. Stuart then stalled the people who thought they’d bought

The occupants, who had lived at the residence for as long as 40 years, according to firefighters, were put into the care of West Vancouver police victim services and the North Shore Emergency Management Office. The fire is under investigation, said Ernst, but early indications suggest it was not suspicious and caused by an electrical problem, possibly related to the changing of a fuse.

HE typical winter water temperature in English Bay is less than 10 C. At those temperatures the time it takes to lose dexterity without a survival suit is less than five minutes and unconsciousness follows in 30 to 60 minutes. The Canadian Coast Guard Sea Island centre is about 17 kilometres — or 25 minutes — away from the Kitsilano coast guard base that will be closed by the Conservative government in a cost-cutting move that includes three communication centres in Vancouver, Comox and Tofino. Anyone see a potentially fatal problem here? Heritage Minister James Moore, the most senior of B.C.’s MPs, says his government is not endangering the lives of Canadians and claimed the closures were made after wide consultation. Unfortunately for Moore’s believability, neither the Royal Canadian Marine

It’s undemocratic for all these changes to be put together in one bill and then rushed through Parliament.” Jamie Biggar, executive director of, protests the Conservative government’s 450page omnibus budget legislation, which includes amendments to dozens of laws (from a June 8 news story).

Search and Rescue (formerly the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary) or Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson were consulted at all. The North Shore’s RCM spokesmen are understandably reluctant to criticize the decision to close the Kitsilano base but expect the number of calls they respond to will increase. These RCM volunteers are committed and welltrained. They are in the water within 30 minutes of receiving a distress call 90 per cent of the time and often less. But they are not actually on the docks in Deep Cove and Horseshoe Bay 24-7. The Kits base responds to some 200 calls a year. A senior coast guard spokesperson has attempted to justify the closure by pointing out that 70 per cent of those calls are non-emergencies. One question: What will happen to the 60 calls a year that are emergencies?

That means better fish access. It’s improving the beach which district hall has already started — they’ve been timely this year in signing and clearing any overgrown street-end waterfront access trails.” Bragg noted happily that the Vancouver Port Authority is also finally on board as a financial supporter of the Waterfront Walk event. Great decision, port guys! Next, let’s see some action in clearing out the remaining boat-squatters hogging space in Deep Cove. Right after the walk, half a dozen tubs were still moored in heavily used water directly out front of the canoe and kayak centre that pays the district mightily for the privilege of doing business there. With a public marina and the yacht club just a tinkle away, there’s no excuse for further exploitative moorage in an ecologically sensitive area where swimming season has already begun. Meanwhile, straight across the inlet from the oil refinery at the foot of Burnaby Mountain, immigrant families were harvesting clams and kelp along Cates beach, illustrating the reminder from Leonard George that, for the Tsleil-Waututh First Nations people, “When the tide went out, our table was set.” One shudders at the thought of the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project here. Imagine the number of oil tankers jumping from 80 to 475 a year clanking through the Second Narrows railway bridge in Burrard Inlet? That’s the most dangerous section of the entire inner harbour.

An online village is ready to raise a child TO every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction.

What’s true in Newton’s laws of motion is also true in popular culture. We humans plunge headlong into new developments with little thought and then stand there, puzzled, observing the backlash. What fools we mortals be. Case in point: Modamily, an online networking service for strangers who wish to create and co-parent a child. I’d suggest that it’s the image-obsessed bridezillas of this world and bitterly feuding estranged mothers and fathers who are driving this latest enterprise. With weddings often a farce, divorce a perpetual threat, and traumatized kids caught between feuding exes, Modamily’s service eliminates the chore of finding your forever-love for procreation purposes by replacing him or her with someone you hook up with online. The fact that the one thing the two of you currently have in common is that you both crave a child will supposedly steer you clear of the heartbreak of unsuitable mating. Suuuuuure it will. I can certainly see why people are down on the institution of marriage, which fails about half the time and often leaves the individuals involved devastated. I imagine some Modamily customers

Going Coastal

Kate Zimmerman had happily foreseen a married life full of children and now, despite their emotional scars, want to rebuild that dream from scratch. Modamily attempts to go a step beyond the lonely sperm bank, which allows women who are single to conceive babies and raise them on their own, or with a partner other than the seed producer. Those who don’t want to raise a baby solo might think it’s better to go with the devil you don’t know than the devil you dated, bought a house and dishes with, and are now battling over everything, including the parakeet you despise. It’s not like people you meet on the Internet ever turn out to be dishonest, disrespectful or even disturbed — right, serial online daters? Ivan Fatovic is the founder and CEO of Modamily. He described himself in one interview as an “aspirational

parent” rather than an actual one. He has a team of advisers to tell him what parenting’s really like, however. So I guess there’s no need for us to ask questions like “Who’s in charge of getting vomited on or taking time off work when the product of this non-relationship is sick?” Or “How many homes is this kid going to have to shuttle between throughout his or her life, and how many transitional step-parents will he or she have to endure?” Or “What happens when the values one semi-stranger parent wants to impart to his or her child collide with values the other semi-stranger parent insists are crucial?” Or “Who gets custody when the teen decides he or she can’t stand the stricter parent?” Don’t worry. “The child’s going to come first in this relationship,” Fatovic — who’s surely trying to make money from this — has assured BBC News. Am I the only person who’s hearing alarm bells over this airy-fairy arrangement? To me, Modamily mainly sounds like glad tidings for family lawyers. Media commentators have compared the Modamily arrangement with the set-up in the (lousy) movie Friends With Kids. They ignore the fact that in Friends With Kids, the fictional male and female protagonists are best friends living in the same apartment building when they decide that they want to produce and

raise a child together without romantic complications. I can see that arrangement working — in fact, it already seems to for opposite-sex friends where one or both are gay; sometimes they live together and raise their offspring as a team. No harm in that, if everybody’s onside. Close friends generally share values and respect one another’s beliefs. They may have other pals in common, similar interests, and lifestyles that aren’t too far apart. Not

so, complete strangers. The Modamily website — whose slogan is “Bring your dream to life” — makes for odd reading. You can narrow down your baby-making partner based on his or her eye colour, body type, diet, and religion, among other things. Earlier this week, one 40-something straight single woman’s listing under the disturbing title of KittensandPuppies (she does know that pets and kids are different, right?) said she was “Looking for someone to make

me a mommy!” Maybe she found her baby daddy — her listing has vanished. She said she sought “50/50 CoParent Sperm/ Egg Donation with limited parenting role,” though the concept of “limited” anything when it comes to parenting seems completely absurd. KittensandPuppies, a Virgo, described herself as “a perfectionist (who’s) intolerant of stupidity” so I

Notice of Public Hearing Proposed Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 4360, 2004, Amendment Bylaw No. 4724, 2012 Notice is given that a PUBLIC HEARING will be held in the Council Chamber of the Municipal Hall of The Corporation of the District of West Vancouver at 750 - 17th Street, West Vancouver, BC, on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. regarding the following proposed bylaw amendment: Applicant:

The District of West Vancouver

Subject Lands: The proposed Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw amendment applies to all lands located within the boundaries of the Lower Caulfeild Heritage Conservation Area as shown by the dashed line in the map to the right: Purpose:

The purpose of the proposed OCP bylaw amendment is to implement the findings of a recently completed review, which has included considerable neighbourhood input, and has focused on the guidelines and process for heritage alteration permits. Specifically, proposed amendments are intended: • To more clearly connect the heritage conservation area designation with the heritage value and characterdefining elements of Lower Caulfeild; • To provide distinct policies for (1) public lands within the conservation area; and (2) private properties, which are subject to a heritage alteration permit requirement; and • To ensure that the guidelines for heritage alteration permits are clear and meaningful, and help to achieve the objectives for the heritage conservation area.

Proposed OCP If adopted, the Official Community Plan amendment bylaw would provide for replacement of existing Policy Amendment HE 6, Conservation Area Designation HE 6, Guidelines Bylaw: HE 6, and Map HE 6, all pertaining to the Lower Caulfeild Heritage Conservation Area, with new policies HE 6, HE 7 and HE 8, and revised Conservation Area Designation HE 6, Guidelines HE 6, and Map HE 6. While not required as part of the public hearing process:


• All persons who wish to provide comment on the proposed revised Terms of Reference for the Lower Caulfeild Advisory Committee will be given an opportunity to be heard; and • For convenience, as the bylaw amendments are related, all persons who wish to provide comment on the Fees and Charges Bylaw No. 4414, 2005, Amendment Bylaw No. 4721, 2012, will be given an opportunity to be heard. Planning Department, Municipal Hall. Phone: 604-925-7055

All enquiries regarding the proposed bylaw amendments may be directed to the West Vancouver Planning Department at Municipal Hall (Phone: 604-925-7055). Copies of the proposed bylaw amendments and other related documents may be inspected from June 1, 2012 to June 18, 2012 at the Municipal Hall at 750-17th Street, West Vancouver, BC on regular business days (Monday to Friday except for statutory holidays) between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.

All persons who believe that their interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw amendments will be given an opportunity to be heard and to present written submissions at the Public Hearing. Submissions received for the Public Hearing will be included in their entirety in the public information package for Council’s consideration and for the public record. Submissions received after the close of the Public Hearing will not be considered by Council. S. Scholes, Municipal Clerk June 1, 2012

WV adopts anti-homophobia policy James Weldon

WEST Vancouver has added its name to a growing list of B.C. school districts that have taken an official stand against homophobia. At an April 10 meeting, the West Vancouver board of education passed Administrative Procedure 171, a policy intended to help create a positive environment “for all students and employees including those who selfidentify as a member of a sexual minority.” The document, which spells out guidelines relating to curriculum, staff training, general conduct and other facets of school life, makes West Vancouver the 17th school district in the province to adopt a written policy along those lines, according to Xtra!, a publication aimed at the gay and lesbian community that has been tracking the trend. It comes six years after North Vancouver adopted

its own similar guidelines in 2006. Even though homophobic behaviour was already banned by default under broader policies related to discrimination, it was necessary to target this particular brand of intolerance because of the especially hard reality faced by the students it affects, said Aaron White, a West Vancouver school counsellor and one of the driving forces behind the document. “The research clearly shows that, in general, kids who identify themselves as gay lesbian, bisexual, they suffer disproportionately from that kind of harassment,” he said. “The effects in general are much worse on their mental health, which leads to higher rates of depression, higher rates of suicide attempts. . . . We have to take this kind of thing seriously.” One of the areas most in need of attention is word choice, said superintendent Chris Kennedy. “It’s about the language we use in our classrooms, the language we tolerate, the idea

that saying, ‘That’s so gay,’ isn’t acceptable,” he said. “We wouldn’t allow the same kind of language if it had a racial overtone or a cultural overtone, so as adults in the school, we have to be very conscious of those same kinds of terms around gay and lesbian issues.” It’s not just to help those who self-identify as a member of one of the affected groups, said White. “A lot of the harassment guys dish out to one another is around how manly you are, how masculine you are,” he said. “When a guy wants to put another guy down, he calls him . . . some word around being female or he calls him gay. Either one is perceived as not being masculine enough.” West Vancouver’s move comes a year after a highprofile controversy in Burnaby that saw scores of parents descend on a school board meeting there to protest a similar policy. Kennedy was at a loss to explain why Procedure 171 was received so much more positively on this side of the inlet. “I saw the media attention in Burnaby, and Vancouver’s got

some media attention around it. I have trouble explaining it or coming to understand it,” he said. “It’s not something we’ve felt or heard at all in our community.” Adopting the guidelines was a “non-issue” said the superintendent. “People wonder: ‘When this procedure comes in, what will people say?’ That’s kind of old-think,” said Kennedy. “We haven’t heard concerns raised; it’s kind of: ‘Well of course this is what we’re doing.’”

North Vancouver superintendent Mark Jefferson took a similar view of his own district’s policy, which was created in 2006 with the help of parents, students, teachers and other stakeholders. North Vancouver was only the third or fourth district to have put something on paper at the time, he noted. “It’s (about) trying to make all of our kids feel welcomed and all of our staff too,” said Jefferson. “We need to let people know what our beliefs are.”

‘Royal’ name granted in record time From page 3

“In our old boat you get two people under cover and the other two crew members would be standing outside,” said Purdie. “In the middle of winter, in the freezing rain, it’s very difficult to be able to do a good search if you’re cold and wet.” While 80 per cent of the cost of the ship was funded by a donation from the TK Foundation and 20 per cent came from a community gaming grant from the province, Purdie is still looking for $25,000 to fully equip the boat. With light-weight life jackets that cost $300 a pop and $180 helmets, as well as safety harnesses, stretchers, spine boards and night-vision goggles, any little bit helps. “If (people are) willing to donate for a life jacket, that would be just great,” said Purdie. “There’s so much we’re still pulling together for the boat.” Purdie hopes the new name will not only help with fundraising, but give the volunteers the recognition they deserve. “Every time we were involved in a rescue situation, almost without fail, the press would report it as the coast guard,” said Purdie. “So all these volunteers who put so much time and effort into providing the service were usually going without recognition.” As for the ‘royal’ in the new name, the society was pleasantly surprised when their application for the designation was granted in just four months instead of the usual two years. “We assume it’s because members of the Royal family work in the search and rescue business, and they are big supporters of the British RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution),” said Purdie. This is extreme volunteering, requiring a longterm commitment. Team members must train for two years to become “a valuable crew member,” said Purdie. They take turns being on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and need to live within a 15-minute drive of their community’s rescue station. Volunteers also spend from two to five hours a week doing maintenance or training. Members come from all walks of life. The See NV page 11

At the garage sale Mingo, armed with a laptop, will be asking bargain hunters to sign up for Canadian Blood Services’ OneMatch bone marrow and stem cell registry ( “It involves filling out a questionnaire, and then OneMatch will mail a kit out to people so they can provide their saliva swab so their details can be put into the database,” said Mingo. While her son’s disorder is rare, Mingo said raising funds for the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund (www.fanconi. org) has far-reaching benefits for many diseases. “Any money that goes into this particular disease helps advance the medical science behind stem cell transplants, cures for cancer, all those related things,” said Mingo.

NV women unite to bring water to village Erin McPhee

WHEN she was a little girl, growing up in Healay Chaubas, a small village in a remote region of Nepal, Kamala Yonzon Tahrayli dreamed of one day having direct access to water.

Having to wake every morning at 3:30 a.m. to begin the daily journey of walking to a far away source just to draw the water needed for her family’s survival, she knew there had to be a better way. Tahrayli moved to North Vancouver in 1988 at age 22 and has made her home here, working as an assistant teacher in the North Vancouver School District and is the mother of three. Thanks to the support of the North Shore community,

she’s close to realizing her longheld dream and is $15,000 away from establishing a clean water source in Healay Chaubas, saving residents from their current trek of an hour to the nearest source. “Being here, I wanted to help there,” says Tahrayli. “That’s where I grew up. All my family is there. I love it. That is home,” she adds. Tahrayli is the founder of the recently formed Kamala Yonzon Tahrayli Foundation (KYT). Its mission is two-fold: first to establish a source of water in Healay Chaubas; then a hospital, as currently, villagers in need of care must travel a day by foot, or by bus, only as weather permits, to Kathmandu. The foundation has been working with a non-governmental organization in Nepal and the infrastructure is in place to have a free water source implemented as soon as the required project funds are obtained.

Tahrayli became acquainted with Laura Mack, who serves as a member of the foundation’s advisory board, as a result of their sons’ friendship. “I was very drawn to Kamala’s spirit as soon as we met. I wanted to know this woman,” says Mack. “We started to have cups of tea and we started to learn more about each other and she shared her story.” Mack decided to lend her support to the development of KYT, drawing on her background as a consultant in the business community and strategic planning. Last fall, Mack, a former member, encouraged Tahrayli to join composer and musician Julie Blue’s Singspiration Singers, a community choir focused on empowering those who share their voices in the ensemble.

Father’s last wish was for water From page 16

ing fundraising dinners in her home. She’s come a long way and remains committed to the cause, especially in the wake of her father’s passing last year. “He’s my hero,” she says. “His last word, three days before he passed away, he asked me if I was going to finish what

he started.” Tahrayli’s father remained a resident of Healay Chaubas and had long worked to implement a direct source of water for his community. Tahrayli knew then she was on the right path and is beyond grateful for the support she’s received from the North Shore community. “I’m very blessed. . . .,” she says. “It’s

touching, deep in my heart.” River of Life tickets ($20) will be available at the door, starting at 7 p.m. For more information on Julie Blue and the Singspiration Singers, which is always looking for new members, visit For more information on the Kamala Yonzon Tahrayli Foundation, visit

Taxi Saver advocates crash AGM MOST of the time, it’s more fun to watch an annual general meeting than to run one.

NEWS photo Cindy Goodman

Tickling the ivories

VOLUNTEER Dorothy Smith plays piano in the dining hall at the West Vancouver Seniors’ Activity Centre. She regularly performs classic and wartime repertoire to entertain the lunch crowd as well as at special events.

Those who organized the TransLink AGM last month would probably agree with me. Approximately 200 people showed up for the meeting and all they wanted to talk about was the Taxi Saver Program. (I wrote about the program in my last column, May 27). Now when a group this large shows up at your door you’re no longer in control of the meeting — they are. TransLink decided to turn the microphone over to the audience at the start of the meeting. Smart. For more than an hour the executive team at TransLink heard directly from those individuals and organizations most affected by the decision to eliminate the Taxi Saver service. Lesson learned: The Taxi Saver program is a lifeline for a large demographic in our community. Most of the damage to TransLink’s credibility here was selfinflicted. A comment by the CEO of TransLink, that the cancellation of the Taxi Saver program was not a financial decision, prompted

Older & Wiser Tom Carney

the response that if it was (the Taxi Saver service is the most economical and costefficient part of the custom transit service) the program wouldn’t be cancelled in the first place. A spokesperson for the HandyDART drivers — one of TransLink’s own — called the cancellation of the program a mistake. A TransLink press release stated that the users advisory committee, an internal committee of TransLink, was consulted about and agreed to the cancellation of the program. That was wrong on both counts. TransLink’s friends abandoned them on this one too. Both the Vancouver School Board and the City of Vancouver oppose the cancellation of

the service. And before the meeting ended some pesky member from the audience got up and grilled the chair of TransLink on the issue of performance bonuses that were awarded to the executives at TransLink in the past year. Note to TransLink: The last group of executives that received performance bonuses while cutting services to frail and vulnerable clients were from the Community Living board and we all know how that turned out. There were some lighter moments. One young man had questions about fares and schedules for the West Coast Express commuter train. He was at the right meeting — it was just the wrong day to ask the question. And the comment from TransLink that cancelling the Taxi Saver service wasn’t wrong but they may not have gotten it right sounds an awful lot like the, “I may not always be right but I am never wrong,” remark made famous by the legendary American film producer Sam Goldwyn. One thing struck me as odd — given that it was their AGM, and that everyone wanted to talk about the Taxi Saver issue, TransLink chose not to make or offer any comment on their reasons

for cancelling the Taxi Saver program. I don’t take any pleasure in reporting on TransLink’s shortcomings. They deliver more than one million rides a day and their model for integrated service delivery is envied around the world, but they have to do better than this. Following the meeting, staff from TransLink’s access transit department met with some of those in attendance to talk more about the Taxi Saver program. I get calls every day from worried seniors who want to know if TransLink will reverse their decision to eliminate the Taxi Saver program. Here’s what we know: The cancellation of the Taxi Saver program is now on hold. TransLink will conduct a consultation with the community and then they will revisit their decision. Let’s hope TransLink reverses their decision. If they don’t, they are in for the fight of their lives. Tom Carney is the executive director of the Lionsview Seniors’ Planning Society.

Rotary Clubs’ literacy project takes flight

Service group brings books to remote village Jen St. Denis

A North Vancouver Rotary Club has discovered just how much it takes to move a whole library of books, not to mention the library itself, to a remote First Nations village on the B.C. coast. This month, the books and a modular building to house them will be barged from Richmond to Wuikinuxv (Oweekeno) village, a community of about 100 people located 300 kilometres north of Vancouver on the Central Coast, near Rivers Inlet. It’s the culmination of a project that began in September 2011, when membersofNorthVancouver’s Rotary Club of Lions Gate and the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, Steven Point, got in a Coast Guard helicopter and flew to the tiny village. “They were very welcoming and very kind to us, and they gave us gifts and made us

lunch, they were wonderful,” said Elizabeth Chong, a member of the Lions Gate club. “We had a meeting with them, and explained who we were and what Rotary was, and (said) if you want us to help you, let us know and we’ll see if we can help you.” The community embraced the project, and is now eagerly awaiting a library of their very own, said Wuikinuxv band manager Rick Yellowhorn. The library will also be a place where both children and adults can access computers and online learning. “I didn’t know (Rotary was) into this stuff as much as they are,” said Yellowhorn. “It was a pleasant surprise. They’re definitely the right people for the job.” Yellowhornsaidtheremote, isolated community just

doesn’t have the connections or resources to do a project like this on their own. The community can only be accessed by boat or plane, and its small school teaches children from kindergarten to Grade 8. After that, the students need to go to Port Hardy to continue their schooling. The idea for the literacy project came out of a conversation between Point and his aide, Bob Blacker, who is a Rotarian. “Bob often would talk to (Point) about the projects Rotary is doing and one day His Honour said to him, well you’re doing all these international projects to help people abroad, but I think people are maybe not aware of what’s going on in our own backyard,” said Chong. Point, who is from the

A Rotary Club team touches down in Wuikinuxv Village, a First Nations community of about 100 people located 300 kilometres north of Vancouver on the Central Coast near Rivers Inlet. Lt.-Gov. Steven Point drums with some kids from the village in the photo at left. Skowkale First Nation near Chilliwack, recognized there was a problem with literacy in many remote B.C. First Nations communities. Blacker started visiting different Rotary Clubs to see if any of them were interested in taking part in the literacy project. Lions Gate was one of the clubs that bit. The North Vancouver group put out a call for donated books, and now have a warehouse full. They got free

shelving from the now-closed Book Warehouse store on Lonsdale. Britco, a Langleybased company, is donating and renovating a 10 foot by 40 foot modular building for the library, and two employees from the company will travel up with the building to help set it up. Firefighters from Richmond will help build a foundation for the library and a sports court. Next fall, two members of the Tsawwassen Rotary Club

who are experienced literacy teachers will travel up to the community and offer literacy assessments to community members. Rotary’s goal is to leave literacy-supporting libraries that can be run by the communities themselves, said Chong. “We’re helping them up the first rung of the ladder so they can then take flight and run with it, and at some point we need to back out and we need to ensure sustainability.”

Keeping Things Clean “Since I got the job, I have been a lot happier and I look forward to my working days.” This was Peter’s response when he was asked about his quality of life since he started working at Chevron as the general lot maintenance worker. Peter was supported by Employment ConneXions to find this job. He also received adequate training to ensure that he was able to do this job independently. Peter was excited when he was hired by Amrik, the owner of the Chevron located at the corner of Mountain Highway and Main Street in North

Vancouver. Peter says, “I find there is a good communication between me and the other staff.” When Amrik was asked about his experience working with Peter, he mentioned, “Peter is reliable, honest and pleasant to work with.” Amrik also added, “Working with Employment ConneXions has been a great experience. It’s been very beneficial to have Peter’s Vocational Counsellor train him so that we didn’t have to put in extra time training him, which is a huge thing for us. I would highly recommend other employers to

use Employment ConneXions services for hiring employees and getting involved in the community.” According to Peter, “Employment ConneXions has found an excellent fit for me based on my strengths and interests. I find the support to be very professional and not intrusive. I like the friendly tips given to me to do my job better.”

Finding Your Team When beginning his job search, Spencer knew he wanted to work in an Italian restaurant. He got a part-time job at Boston Pizza and was delighted. Spencer arrived early on his first shift, and got to work right away. With this attitude he was able to push through some of the challenges associated with learning a first job. The Boston Pizza employees have been accommodating of Spencer’s learning style. They have put up signs in the kitchen to help Spencer remember his tasks. Boston Pizza franchisee, Darrell,

states that “Spencer is a great addition to our team. He is always happy, working hard and he fits right in with our team.” When asked about his working goals, Spencer says that he wants to stay with Boston Pizza because he feels like he belongs there. Spencer’s Mom has noticed that since starting his new job he has become happier and more positive. “He is taking on more responsibility, helping out at home and he gets along better with his brother because they have more in common,” she says.

In response to questions about hiring and training a worker with a disability, Darrell comments, “As a busy owner operator I can only do so much, working with ConneXions made it easy.”

Doing What I Love Ashley has found a spot in the working community where she can be herself and still enjoy what she does at her job. Ashley was supported by Employment ConneXions to get a job as a Junior Office Assistant at McCreary Centre Society, a non-profit organization committed to improving the health of BC youth through research, education and community based projects. When asked what she likes best about working at McCreary, Ashley

responded, “I like the staff at McCreary and I love doing petty cash, shredding, recycling, filing reports and learning new tasks like using the computer to print labels.” Ashley shared that she enjoys working with Employment ConneXions because she likes being trained and respected. Kate Kovaleva, Ashley’s supervisor at McCreary said, “I look forward to having Ashley come to work. She brightens up the office environment for everyone with her smile and

by helping others do their job.” Kate further explained, “It’s been a rewarding experience to teach Ashley different tasks and watch her learn and do the job well.” Kate mentioned that she will be working with Ashley to organize supplies for BC Adolescent Health Survey 5 in early 2013 which will involve surveying 40,000 youth across BC. Ashley is looking forward to assisting Kate with this new project!

John-Paul Is In His Element Creating original music on his computer late into the night is a passion for John-Paul (JP). Some great artists that influence him are: Primus, Mudvayne and Skinny Puppy. He wanted a position to reflect his interest in all things media-related. In order to make this happen, he applied to the Customized Employment program at ConneXions. With his determination and wicked sense of humour, he truly has been a pleasure to work with. When we spoke to the management at Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas in Vancouver, we knew we had found the perfect fit

for him. The team there, referred to as “Cast Members” are friendly, dynamic and fun. The management team is also very communicative and inclusive. When asked what JP enjoys best about his job, he responded, “Interacting with customers and co-workers and being able to share my knowledge about movies.” One of JP’s perks, as an employee, is that he is able to see many movies. This really helps when customers chat about the movie they have just seen or want to see next. JP takes great pride in working at Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas and has found employment to be

All About the Team In August, the ConneXions Customized Employment program began working with an individual who was looking for employment with the right team. He was looking for a job that had easygoing, young and patient colleagues to work with. He was also looking for a job that had a technical component to it where he could use his skills. From the information gathered it was realized that bike shops fit the criteria as they’re generally social places to work yet have a technical side to them, not to mention that our jobseeker had experience volunteering at a bike shop. ConneXions

approached John Henry Bikes about possible job opportunities and was greeted warmly by the staff. They showed interest and asked if he could come in for a meeting. From the moment John Henry

Bikes conducted the meeting they made him feel right at home. Dave, the Supervisor explained that the environment at John Henry Bikes promotes individuality, teamwork and attention to detail. The friendly

staff also left a memorable impression as they answered questions and conducted an informative tour through the large shop floor. Once the meeting was over, John Henry Bikes offered him a position as a Bike Shop Assistant, which was quickly accepted. Since being hired in March, John Henry Bikes has helped their new employee truly feel a part of their team. They have created a positive environment that enables staff to succeed and learn a variety of new skills. Dave states, “He’s brought such a hard work ethic and positive attitude that he’s a pleasure to have around the store.”

really motivating; his independence has significantly increased as a result. He also feels that he is in a position to challenge some stereotypes about people living with disabilities who are in the workplace. He has been presented with some ‘interesting’ questions by customers and is quick to stress the realities of his situation and how capable he is. JP started this position at the end of 2011 and is thoroughly enjoying his work environment as it is perfectly blends his passion for media and a professional, fun workplace!

Many Thanks as We Say Goodbye: ConneXions would like to thank Manon Gelinas for seven years of dedicated service as Program Manager of our Employment programs. Manon will long be remembered for her strong advocacy skills and her expertise in delivering specialized employment services. We wish her all the best as she moves on to focus on her graduate studies!

Under New Management: We are pleased to announce that Carol Wainwright has accepted the position of Program Manager for our Employment programs. Having served as the lead Employment Specialist in our Customized Employment since 2009, Carol is well placed to assume her new role with practical skills, great enthusiasm and a fresh vision.

Cool vintage results in delicious drops

ONE of our favourite tastings of the year is an action-packed hour or so spent with Quails Gate winemaker Grant Stanley.

We’ll get to the wines shortly but much of my enthusiasm stems from the fact that Grant — aside from being a superb winemaker and one of the most personable guys in the industry — is refreshingly down to earth. In short, he calls a spade a spade. After nearly a decade in B.C. (and extensive prior

Notable Potables Tim Pawsey

experience in New Zealand and Oregon) he’s gained

an invaluable cool-climate perspective. When 2010 arrived he figured it couldn’t get any worse. And then 2011 hit. “What happened?” he asked himself. The growing season, one of the coolest on record, resulted in many harvesting well into the end of October. “We picked three weeks late, across the board,” says the winemaker, who says he just couldn’t believe the lack of ripeness and sugars, and low numbers all round. “It was relentless to watch, very challenging. And more

work on all levels,” he says. “Eventually, we had to pull the pin . . . before the snow flew!” Despite that, however, Stanley says: “It’s incredible how the wines have actually turned out, with great varietal expression.” In fact, “everyone’s raving about the 2011 whites, especially the aromatics. without a doubt the lower alcohols contribute to that expression, so who would have thought so much slightly on the edge of unripe would

THE 2011 growing season was one of the coolest on record at Quails Gate Winery, but the white wines, especially the aromatics, are showing exceptional varietal expression.

be so appealing?” And appealing they are, indeed. Here’s a trio of whites and a rosé, any one of which — when the hot weather eventually does arrive (or even before!) — would be a happy addition to your fridge. ■ Quails Chenin Blanc 2011. We love this wine as much for the story behind it as for how it tastes. Back in the days when everyone was going gaga over Chardonnay, Quails Gate considered dropping the varietal, but in recent years its popularity has risen, in part thanks to Stanley’s approach — adding a dash of 8 per cent Sauvignon Blanc and a little neutral barrel-fermented Chenin, that delivers surprising complexity finished in a highly appealing dry style. This crisp wine also delivers great texture and mouthfeel, with bursts of lemon lime and juicy acidity that just cries out for a dozen oysters on the half shell; 91 points. BCLS $18.99. ■ Quails Gate Dry Riesling 2011. The Alsace clone yields more floral, less limey notes, suggests Stanley, but it still explodes with a burst of lemon zest on the broad, quite textured palate, though not as puckering, he

says, again with great, juicy acid fruit balance. The winemaker suggests to put it down and wait a while for it to develop. You might have a problem doing that, however; 90 points. BCLS $16.99. ■ Quails Gate Rosé 2011. No doubt, there’ll be a lot of rosés out of the Okanagan for 2011, says Stanley. Maybe. But, guaranteed, this Gamay with a splash of Pinot Gris will be one of the best. Pretty salmon in the glass it has some candied notes on the nose that don’t come through on the overall dry palate. Definite rhubarb and strawberry notes with an appealing savoury, dried herb note and a touch of spice to close. And such a deal at BCLS $14.99; 90 points. Cracked crab please. And maybe a case. ■ Quails Gate Chasselas Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris 2011. There was a time when the future for Chasselas didn’t look that promising. But the success of this very appealing off-dry blend has prompted the winery to plant another three acres. Stanley has embraced a more off-dry style, with aromatics enhanced by the Pinot Gris. Let it open in the glass and the zesty notes give way to more tropical tones. Great as a sipper but also very seafood friendly; 89 points. BCLS $18.99.

Wouldn’t you rather own life insurance on someone 30 to 40 years older than yourself?

After applying, the various groups are judged based on their ability to consistently benefit the North Shore, and the need they serve. The group’s board of directors makes the final recommendations on the grants. The NSCF is also slated to present dozens of scholarships to North Shore students at the grant ceremony, which is scheduled to take place at The Summerhill Retirement Residence in North Vancouver.

Once the 2012 grants are handed out, the foundation will have given more than $1 million in grants and disbursements since the foundation’s inception in 1988, noted the release. Foundation president David Alsop stated in the release that this is a special year for the foundation. Alsop attributed the foundation’s longevity to its many generous benefactors.

MAYA CULTURE: The Maya people constitute a diverse range of the Native American people of southern Mexico and northern Central America. The overarching term “Maya” is a collective designation to include the peoples of the region who share some degree of cultural and linguistic heritage; however, the term embraces many distinct populations, societies, and ethnic groups, who each have their own particular traditions, cultures, and historical identity. There are an estimated 7 million Maya living in this area at the start of the 21st century. Ethnic Maya of Guatemala, southern Mexico and the Yucatán Peninsula, Belize, El Salvador, and western Honduras have managed to maintain substantial remnants of their ancient cultural heritage. — Wikipedia

LAKE Atitlan, with three volcanoes on its southern flank, is surrounded by towns and villages of the Tz’utujil and Kaqchikel Maya.


Hidden charms

Lucie Bardos Contributing Writer

GUATEMALA, one of the poorest countries in Latin America with a startlingly high percentage of its mainly indigenous population living in poverty, is probably not at the top of everyone’s list of must-see destinations. However, as I have discovered over the past month and a half, what Guatemala lacks from an economic perspective, it more than makes up for with its incredible cultural and linguistic diversity and abundance of natural and archeological treasures. When I left my home in North Vancouver for this Portugal-sized country of 15 million inhabitants earlier this year, I had read very little about it and had no idea of the marvels waiting to assail my senses. I was coming to meet my boyfriend, who was born in Guatemala but whose family moved to Canada during the bloody civil war that lasted until the mid ’90s. Together, we would spend two months exploring this place of many trees, which is what “Guatemala” means in the Nahuatl language. On the trip from Los Angeles to Guatemala City, I felt a little out of place as one of only two or three non-Latin Americans on the plane. In the air I leafed through my newly-purchased Lonely Planet book and began to get a sense of what I might expect. It sounded like there was something in Guatemala for everyone, and now, after a month and a half, I can confirm this to be true. At first I thought that Guatemala would be filled mainly with seasoned backpackers, ready to get in some serious bushwhacking time with the help of a trusty machete. I was wrong, of course. While I have seen my fair share of machetes, I have also seen young families traveling with toddlers, high school groups, middle-aged musician couples stopping to perform at open mike nights as they explore the country, seniors tour groups, and a whole lot of regular people looking to explore a place that’s a world away from their everyday lives — I suppose I can count myself in that last group. I think that the diversity present in the different types of travelers is a reflection of the diversity that is Guatemala itself: there are over 20 indigenous languages spoken here; the incredible weaving and textile-making traditions unique to each region are still in full swing; the biodiversity ranges from pristine flat land rain forests where you can make every second plant into some kind of curative tea to the mysterious cloud

forests high up in the mountains where bird watchers hope to catch a glimpse of the rare and beautiful national bird of Guatemala — the Quetzal. For those travellers that fully know how to appreciate their down-time, there are more hammocks in this country than anywhere I have ever seen, and for adventure lovers, there are more volcanoes than one could climb in a lifetime as well as dozens of caves and unexcavated ruins just begging to be visited. There have been several highlights of our trip that I would recommend to those thinking of traveling to Guatemala. As an awe-inspiring starting-off point and a great place to catch a glimpse of colonial splendour, Antigua is the place to go. The central highlands city has well-preserved Spanish baroque architecture and is filled with beautiful multicoloured buildings. Its centre is sprinkled with ruined churches set against a backdrop of towering volcanoes and rolling green hills. The shady, treefilled main square is the hub of city activity and a photography buff’s dream: Mayan women selling necklaces and scarves, couples kissing on benches, old men pushing around ice cream carts, and musicians from around the world performing on any given afternoon. If you get tired of civilization, you can head to Semuc Champey, a natural paradise at the end of a 45-minute pickup truck drive (I had to hop in the back of one — it’s quite the adventure) down a bumpy gravel road in the department of Alta Verapaz. Here, a rushing river hides beneath a natural limestone bridge which is covered by sparkling swimmable turquoise pools with green mountains rising from the valley all around you. A few hours here and everyday worries will fade away — if you come in the early morning or evening, chances are you will be alone as you explore this exotic wonderland. The Rio Dulce (“Sweet River” in Spanish), can be explored by kayak as you marvel at the different birds feeding and flying all around you. On a day trip to Finca El Paraíso, you will come upon a toasty hot spring waterfall tumbling into a cool river in the middle of a forested park. Travellers to Livingston on Guatemala’s east Caribbean coast may think they have arrived in a completely different country. Livingston, accessible only by water, is inhabited by the Garifuna — a unique hybrid culture formed by Carib, Arawak and West African people along the Caribbean Coast in Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Honduras. The Garifuna speak their own language, have their own unique take on Christianity, dance the Punta, and know how to cook up some mean grilled fish and seafood soup. Local See Tikal page 32

tour guide, Pichi, will take you five kilometres along the beach to the Siete Altares (“Seven Altars”), which are cascading freshwater pools surrounded by forest, as he fills you in on local customs and tells amusing anecdotes. To get an unforgettable taste of the ancient Maya culture, most people head to the archeological site of Tikal, where the early morning mist gives just the right atmosphere to enormous temples and pyramids poking out of the rain forest. Climb Temple 4, pretend you are a Mayan royal and marvel at your kingdom. I personally couldn’t believe the mathematical precision with which each structure in Tikal lines up with the stars, the seasons, other sites hundreds of kilometres away, and how on earth they managed to build the Grand Plaza so that the echo of hands clapping sounds like the call of the Quetzal! Tikal is one of Guatemala´s most famous attractions, but if one wants to ditch the tourists and feel like a true explorer, it is possible to arrange a five to seven day guided hike to El Mirador (“The Lookout”), the little-excavated archeological site just seven kilometers from the Mexican border. It is home to the largest temple in the Mayan world – La Danta. The exhausting trek is worth it once you are sitting 72 meters-high atop La Danta and all you see around you are trees and strangelooking bumps which are actually unexcavated Mayan ruins. We even heard the unsettling roar of howler monkeys and spotted jaguar tracks in the mud as our photos Lucie Bardos guide told us legends from the Popol Vuh (the Mayan creation LUCIE Bardos standing in front of Temple 2 at Tikal. story) and about how the dirt trail we were standing on was once a stab at making their own chocolate, there to exceed expectations.

Gliding through the desert’s dawn sky Peter Neville-Hadley

Contributing Writer

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona: In Scottsdale it’s all about the sky. During 330 cloud-free, sun-drenched days a year, visitors lie face-up on poolside loungers enjoying the nearlyalways reliable rays. At night they take advantage of the clear desert air for a closer look at a firmament brilliant with stars. Stargazing is so popular that rooms at Scottsdale’s Four Seasons Resort come with telescopes, and there are frequent visits by a professional astronomer with a larger device, happy to explain what’s where in the night heavens. But for those who tire of this passive approach there’s also the option of going aloft in a powered parachute — a sort of two-seat tricycle with wings. Just after dawn, when the air is still and the light dramatic,ArizonaPowerchutes pilot-instructor Randy Long and I drive a short ways out into the desert. Long rolls the ultralight aircraft out of its trailer. The multicoloured rectangular parachute from which the whole device will be suspended is carefully laid out in a crescent and attached with a web of lines. We don flight suits and helmets, strap ourselves in and, after one glance at the windsock (attached to a fishing rod poking up from the trailer), he revs the engine, the parachute fills and we’re quickly off the ground. The experience is very E.T. — like being on a bicycle in the air. The 65-horsepower, twostroke engine powering a fourblade propeller caged behind the rear of the two seats is quieter than expected and the breeze from a maximum speed of around 42 kilometres per hour is pleasant. Throttle up and we climb; throttle down and we drop. The vehicle glides downwards at a rate of one in five, so even engine failure would only mean a slightly hard landing with no harm done.

Around us several hot air balloons are hanging prettily in the air like clusters of ripe, glowing fruit. We circle, and exchange aeronautic greetings. The early-morning light is horizontal, making the giant cactuses throw long shadows, and the air is dry and clear, showing everything from distant high ground to scattering rabbits below us in high definition. Regulations permit powered parachutes to climb to as high as 3,000 metres, but it’s more fun to weave a few metres off the ground along the stony channels created by flash floods. We spiral upward to climb over some power lines, and then head over to Cave Creek Regional Park. “That’s the toll booth,” says Long. “Just give them a wave.” No entrance fees for us. Winking dots of red are teddy-bear cholla cactuses in bloom, and there are flashes of blue from backyard swimming pools in the Scottsdale suburbs. Our landing, after 45 minutes of ambling round the skies, is brief and gentle. Long frequently flies solo. “Sometimes I’ll wake up in the morning and it’ll be a great day, so I plug my iPod into my headset, get my favourite music, fly around and feel like I own the world.” If you go:

I’VE worked with dogs for almost two decades and lived with them for more than four decades. It’s easy for me to read a dog’s body language and know what he or she is saying by a turn of the head, a cocked ear or wag of a tail. But most people don’t see — never mind know — the fundamental details of canine body language, especially when it comes to dogs that may be saying they are about to bite. The majority of people think that just See Wagging page 35

Wagging tail not always a warm welcome From page 34

and leave them alone, especially if they are tied. A tied dog may feel threatened and insecure because its safety mechanism — being able to flee — is compromised and the next choice of self protection is to fight . . . which means bite. When observing a dog, be it a familiar or strange dog, here are some things to take into consideration to let you know what the dog is feeling. A dog that is moving in a carefree, casual motion, with their whole body wagging along with their tail, ears back but not pulled tight to the head, eyes half closed

because a dog’s tail is wagging it is an approachable and friendly dog. That’s not the case. To other dogs, the wag of a tail, the placement of their ears, the turn of a head are all detailed forms of communication that tell other dogs how they are feeling at any given moment. Most humans miss over 90 per cent of what a dog is saying in their body language and that can lead to someone getting bitten, especially around strange dogs. When it comes to unfamiliar dogs it is always best to play it safe

Pet Page


and lowering its head and possibly panting lightly is a relaxed dog. Dogs that yawn are not always telling you they are tired. In fact, dogs yawn out of stress more than out of being tired. A stress yawn is a very wide, full mouth yawn exposing the teeth fully. The eyes close tightly and they give their heads a quick little shake at the end. This dog is anxious and nervous. If you are unfamiliar with a dog showing this behaviour, leave it alone. Dogs that are standing stiff and look tense in their body, have a direct unwavering stare, with a high tail that is wagging in short quick wags,

and tight lips/jaw are giving you a warning to back off, not asking you to come over for a belly rub. Dogs that have their tail down low and tightly tucked between their legs are nervous and insecure dogs. Their tail may be wagging but if they are trying to back away from you, don’t approach them. They are trying to tell you they are worried and it’s best to let them be. A dog that is standing tall, with ears high on its head and forward stare, a slow wagging stiff tail but flicks its tongue out is not asking for a treat. It is very unsure and it’s best to just go away. Sometimes a dog will lower its head as you approach and turn it away to one side as if trying to avoid you . . . it is! This dog’s

body language is saying it wants to avoid your approach because it is uncomfortable and insecure. Please respect that. The whites of a dog’s eyes are rarely seen unless it is saying, “I am afraid, and uncomfortable so leave me alone.” The dog will also have a closed mouth with tight lips. The frozen stance, cold stare, stiff body, ears pulled tight against their head and looking at you sideways is the body language of a dog that is about to bite. Back away calmly and leave the dog alone. These are general guidelines of course, and in no way intended to turn anyone into a dog whisperer, only to help keep you and your children safe from a potential dog bite.

Royals bronzed at AAA soccer finals Andy Prest

THE Handsworth Royals senior girls soccer team won bronze at last weekend’s AAA provincial championship tournament held in Surrey, just missing a trip to the final after losing their semifinal in that beguiling soccer score settler, the shootout.

making it to the big show. “Yadier Molina is their No. 1 guy in the big leagues obviously but hopefully I’ll be right behind him one day,” he said. Once he secures a work visa Wick will head to Cardinals camp in Florida where he expects to sign a five-year contract with the club. From there he’ll join the Johnson City Cardinals of the Appalachian League in Tennessee, a short-season A ball league. While at Cypress College Wick mainly

The Royals, North Shore champions, racked up two wins and a tie in pool play to win their group and advance to the semifinals where they faced West Kelowna’s Mt. Boucherie secondary. With a berth in the final on the line the Royals pressed for much of the game but came up empty against Mt. Boucherie’s stout defence and strong goaltender. The score stayed knotted at 0-0 throughout regulation and 15 minutes of overtime, sending the game to the dreaded shootout where the Royals lost by a goal. “It’s a very tough way to lose,” said Handsworth’s Carrie Sorokan, co-head coach along with Anne Farnam. “There has to be a way to do it and it’s just unfortunate that we weren’t able to score during regulation time because we certainly had a lot of good chances. They were good shots but they had a good keeper.” Semifinal losses, particularly heartbreaking overtime ones, can sometimes lead to bronzegame letdowns but the Royals weren’t about to fall into that trap. Looking to take home some kind of hardware, Handsworth came out flying against Coqutilam’s Dr. Charles Best secondary and ended up with a 4-1 win and a place on the podium. “We were able to play quite a strong game which was really to the girls’ credit because after having already played four games in two days the girls were quite sore and they were quite physical games that we had,” said Sorokan. “They basically picked themselves up and they did what they needed to do. It was a nice game to watch, they played a good game of soccer and everybody was able to participate.” The Royals scored bronze despite missing two of their star Grade 12 midfielders for

NORTH Vancouver’s Rowan Wick played catcher for California’s Cypress College this season while also leading the team in home runs. The St. Louis Cardinals selected Wick in the ninth round of the MLB draft this week.

Wick drafted by Cardinals

Fellow Carson grad Briscoe also picked in draft Andy Prest

THIS week North Vancouver’s Rowan Wick experienced for the second time what for many people would be a dream-cometrue just once: getting drafted by a pro sports team. The lanky lefty catcher was taken in the ninth round of the Major League Baseball draft, 300th overall, by the St. Louis Cardinals. Two years ago Wick was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers straight out of Carson Graham secondary — he played two seasons with the BCPBL’s Vancouver Cannons — but instead of heading right into the pro rookie leagues he chose to play some college baseball. One season at New York’s St. John’s University and another at California’s Cypress College followed and, because he didn’t sign a contract with the Brewers, his name went back into the draft. The plan seems to have worked out well as Wick moved up 10 rounds in the draft from 19th in 2010 to ninth in 2012. Two years ago getting drafted was exciting. This year? “It feels better,” said Wick with a laugh. He was the third Canadian taken this year following Pickering, Ont. third-

Wick worked out with several clubs before the draft with the Cardinals and Padres expressing the most interest in the days leading up to the draft. The Cardinals, defending World Series champions, eventually pulled the trigger first. Wick said he knows he likely won’t be making the big club by this fall to help in any title defence but he’s looking forward to moving up the ranks and eventually

West Van golf shootout ends in one-shot showdown THE VGT Golf West Vancouver Shootout lived up to its name as the unique event hosted last month at Gleneagles Golf Course came down to a oneshot-to-win showdown between North Vancouver pro Bryn Parry and Vancouver’s Ryan Williams.

NEWS photo Paul McGrath

BRYN Parry fires a shot during the VGT Golf West Vancouver Shootout at Gleneagles Golf Course.

The rapid-fire tournament pitted 10 golfers against each other in a mass start, elimination tournament with cash prizes on the line. All 10 players started on hole number 1 at the same time in one massive group and at the end of each hole the player with the highest score or, in case of a tie, the loser of a oneshot closest to the pin contest, was eliminated. By hole number 9 only Parry and Williams were left standing, battling for the $1,000 first prize. Both players made par on the hole, meaning they’d face off from a pre-determined drop spot with closest to the pin taking the win. The shot was a 100See Williams page 39

most of the tournament. Kendra Perrin missed the entire event because she was playing with Canada’s U21 national field hockey team at an event in Argentina while Christine Zwimpfer tried to play through an ankle injury but could only stay on the pitch for about 20 minutes before being shut down for the rest of the tournament. The rest of the team worked to fill the voids, helping the Royals get back in the medals after missing provincials the past two seasons. Handsworth won the title in 2009 after finishing second in 2008. “We were very proud of the girls,” said Sorokan. “They stepped up and they dug down deep. We have players on our team who play at all levels of community soccer so it’s just really nice to see a group of girls come together and they all have a strong work ethic and they were very supportive of each other. It really showed what a team can be. They all came together with a common goal and they’re all very supportive of each other, they like each other and it’s always been a really great atmosphere on the team and I think that’s probably what helped carry us through.” Leading the way was Lindsay Johansen who was named the team’s representative on the Commissioner’s 11 tournament all-star team. “She had a great tournament,” said Sorokan.

“She played pretty much all the games so she must have been exhausted but she just came through. She’s one of those kids that leads by example, she’s not overly vocal but she definitely has this quiet sureness about her and I think it’s really nice for the girls to be able to play with her.” Johansen is bound for Arkansas State University on a soccer scholarship in the fall. Sorokan credited her team with playing hard and fair throughout the tournament despite the tough circumstances of their semifinal loss. “They came together and they knew what they needed to do, wanted to do and they just really worked hard and were very supportive on and off the field,” she said. “They were very gracious when they weren’t successful in that game that would have put us into the gold/ silver final and also I think that they were also gracious winners when they played the bronze medal game.” Argyle secondary, the 2011 champions, also made the trip to provincials where they finished ninth. The Pipers recorded a 7-0 win over Prince George, a 0-0 tie against the eventual champions from Panorama Ridge and a 1-0 loss to Point Grey in pool play to finish third in their group. They went on to win their final two games, 3-2 over South Kamloops and 2-1 over Claremont, to claim ninth spot. Danica Mitchell was named to the Commissioner’s 11 team.

Second crack at draft bumps Wick up 10 rounds

From page 37 played catcher but also a little bit of outfield and even pitched a few innings, hitting 94 miles per hour on the radar gun. But he’s always loved catching, he said, and that’s where he’s hoping to stick. “I’ve just always been a catcher,” he said, adding that there are advantages to playing such a demanding position. “They say that a left-handed hitting catcher with some power is like the most valuable player.” Wick tied for the lead in the California Collegiate League’s Orange Empire Conference with seven home runs this season despite getting at least 50 fewer at bats than the rest of the league leaders. Another North Vancouverite joined Wick on the draft board this week as second baseman Keaton Briscoe went in the 24th round, 751st overall, to the famed Boston Red Sox. Briscoe starred with the North Shore Twins, helping the team win three consecutive titles from 2007 to 2009, before moving on to play at the University of British Columbia. Also a Carson grad, Briscoe started every game for the Thunderbirds in his sophomore season and led the team in runs, triples, walks, on-base percentage and stolen bases. Both Wick and Briscoe have suited up for Canada’s junior national team.

HOLTZMAN, David Karl

We die in an instant, we live for a lifetime. Although David’s passing was sad and sudden, the memory of how he lived causes us all to smile and at times celebrate. On April 9th, 2012 David died unexpectedly while vacationing in Palm Springs. David lived an amazing and rich life on all levels. David was a charmer, a comedian, a chef extraordinaire and definitely an adventurer. Yet to all of us, David was an exceptional individual with a huge heart and an incredible zest for life. David was a good neighbour, a supportive colleague, and an exceptional friend. David was family. David was a loving partner, a brother-in-law, a passionate uncle, a caring brother, and even an outgoing Uncle Monkey! He was a cousin, a grandson and a nephew. To his parents, David was a remarkable, loving and involved son who took his mom and dad by the hand and shared the world with them. For the past 25 years, David worked in the social non-profit sector in Vancouver with the same passion as he lived his life. His work included Director Operations & Human Resources for Out On Screen, Executive Director for A Loving Spoonful, Executive Director of Leadership Vancouver and Development Director of Friends for Life. David had also worked for the Department of External Affairs, the Positive Living BC Red Ribbon Advisory Council, the Canadian Council on Learning, Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion World Tour, WUSC - World University Service of Canada (stationed in Jakarta, Indonesia) and Expo 86. Some of the positions David held took him to exotic faraway lands while other positions took David deep into the soul of Vancouver. Whatever role David played he always fought for the underdog and those who often needed help the most. David will always be remembered as a kind, intelligent, passionate man with a dry sense of humor, a huge sense of fun and an appreciation of the absurd. David touched many and his life has made all those who were lucky enough to have known him kinder, smarter, more passionate and gave us the freedom to laugh hard and loud. David will live on in all who have loved him; his will be the internal voice that tells us to “stand up and do the right thing”. David leaves behind his partner Peter, his parents Bruce and Karen, his sister Linda Hamata and brother-in law Gary, niece Alison and nephews Michael, Peter, Christian, Sam and Ben and, his brother Andy and sisterin-law Alex and many, many other wonderful friends and family. David was predeceased by his little sister Jenny (age 8) in 1975. The David Holtzman Diversicorn Fund has been established at Out On Screen to honour his memory. Donations to the Fund shall advance the anti-bullying work of Out In Schools, a program of Out On Screen which was dear to his heart and in line with his personal values. Donations can be made online at or by calling Leslie at (604) 844-1615 . An event for family, friends and all who loved him will be on the summer solstice, June 20, 2012 at the Roundhouse in Yaletown, at Davie and Pacific from 7-10 PM to celebrate David’s life.”

Cancer June 21-July 22: Sunday/Monday bring wisdom and a broad understanding – use these when bosses, parents, partners, lovers and/or events act contrarily. Careful driving, travelling. Let your ambitions rule Tuesday/Wednesday (if you don’t, higher-ups will tend to lean negatively on you). Though June is a low-energy, low charisma month for you, Thursday to Saturday might be an exception: yes, you’re weary, but luck walks with you in social, group, future-oriented, and/or humanitarian involvements. Investments, security and retirement prospects can gain from approaching head offices or civil servants. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A light love affair could start, if it hasn’t already. (Almost any flirtation or “light romance” could turn into a full-bodied love affair between now and mid-2013.) Your hopes are high, your popularity grows; entertainment and good friends arrive. Join a group, issue and accept invitations. Sunday/Monday are mysterious, sexual, financial, and set up future changes in your life. Step cautiously, avoid belligerent people – careful driving. All this Tuesday, too, but now your mood (Tuesday/ Wednesday) is serene, loving and compassionate. Be ambitious Thursday/Friday – luck’s good! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Sunday/Monday emphasize relationships – step carefully, “explosions” and refusals are rife. The intimate side of links unfolds Tuesday (glitches) and Wednesday (neutral outlook). Not the best influence to make investments. Your gentle, loving, understanding side emerges Thursday to Saturday – and meets only benefits. This is a great few days to travel, or undertake legal, educational, intellectual, publishing or cultural actions. All week, the general theme lies on ambition, prestige, career, dealings with higher-ups. This zone is growing increasingly lucky – for 12 months.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on travel, casual acquaintances, communications, paperwork and details. These things will balloon this week into the middle of next year. Think about upgrading your stationery, computer, car. Sunday/ Monday are tiring – avoid confrontations, especially around your home or in restaurants. (Save crucial family conversations for Friday.) Your energy surges back Tuesday/Wednesday (but avoid confrontations these two days also). Thursday to Saturday are great for shopping, earning money and sensual liaisons. (But results are elusive Saturday.) All week, be curious. Taurus April 20-May 20: Chase money, spend, seek more clients or a pay raise – this month starts a year of “swelled money.” (Remember, don’t spend big before September – unless you’re making a longterm investment for capital gain, not for income.) Sunday/Monday are filled with hope – you’ll be happy even though not much goes right. Not a lot goes right Tuesday/Wednesday, either – but you should be resting, in a quiet, contemplative mood anyway, so just relax and avoid making requests or confronting others. Your energy and charisma soar Thursday to Saturday, and luck accompanies you – start something! Gemini May 21-June 20: Your charisma, energy, clout and effectiveness ride a summer peak. Your luck is climbing fast – for a year. Approach others. Maintain hope to September, then maintain top speed – you’ll race toward success. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday – but diplomatically, as many are raw-skinned now, waiting to throw a tantrum or a monkey wrench. Your optimism, popularity and love of life rise Tuesday/Wednesday – befriend others, without necessarily seeking practical ends. Thursday to Saturday bring a quiet respite: be alone, nap, plan, contact advisors, government, or the spiritual world.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The accent remains on legal, educational, far travel, cultural, publishing and similar themes – and on love. Trust yourself – you see things clearly, if perhaps a little soberly. You can see or sense the “final result” of almost anything now – of a property move/purchase, of a relationship, old or new, etc. Let this determine whether you plunge in or stay out. Think far, far result. Work/health Sunday/Monday. Relationships are attractive but mixed (luck-wise) Tuesday/ Wednesday. Be diplomatic. Sexual, intimate, research and financial success come Thursday to early Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Mysteries, detective work, big finances, lifestyle changes, sexual urges, health diagnoses, commitments and consequences are the general flavour of this week. These meet glitches (or immovable barriers) Sunday to Tuesday (perhaps connected to work or health demands). Temptations in this entire spectrum (sexual, financial, research, etc.) have existed since April 2011, and last to Aug. 31. Yet a huge luck also enters these areas Monday, to last a year. If you’re astute, ethical, riches await! Exciting meetings, opportunities, face you Thursday to Saturday – be open, friendly! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent remains on relationships of all kinds, from a chance meeting on the street to a life-long partnership. Great good luck enters this area Monday, to last a year. But until Aug. 30, be mildly independent, don’t “slide” into a marriage (or relocate, or sign a contract) just because it’s easy or others prod you. If in doubt, stay out: there will be plenty of time and luck from September into mid-2013. If single, you’ll likely meet mate material in that period. Monday/Tuesday illustrate the problems with/barriers to premature embrace. Work succeeds Thursday/Friday.


place ads online @

June 10 - 16, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent remains on work and health. Old chores return to be redone. Barriers to success exist before Thursday, so proceed with ordinary caution. (Be careful if working at home, with machinery, Monday/Tuesday.) Usually, extra work demands would cease by June 19 or 20, but this year shows growing work influences/projects right into mid2013. To succeed, take what comes through August, then actively expand your work sphere September onward. Romantic notions float to you Thursday to Saturday – send someone flowers, or head to singles’ venues – a nice luck accompanies you. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The romantic theme continues. If you’re single, the path is scattered with little glitches (or temptations to cut corners or grab someone who’s unattainable) before September. Yet, starting Monday, your good luck swells in this arena – right into mid-2013. So, good luck with caution through August, then good luck unbounded! (An example of the “wrong path” shows before Wednesday.) Monday/ Tuesday feature earnings, purchases and casual sex – careful, lemons abound in the last two. Avoid new investments. Home, real estate, retirement plans are great Thursday-Saturday dawn. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The focus remains on home, children, security, food, retirement – all the basics. A former (neglected or abandoned) plan about these might return. Your luck in these areas will soar now (Monday) through mid-2013, but glitches and pitfalls await the impatient and greedy before September. (Some of these glitches might confront you Monday/Tuesday.) Your energy and charisma rise Sunday/Monday – but don’t start big new projects. Money, buying/selling arise midweek – it’s slow to frustrating, so pace yourself, wait if necessary. Thursday onward brings happy meetings, lucky trips. • Reading: 604-727-3673
