City to lobby port over grain silo expansion

Angry residents crowd council meeting decrying potential loss of property value Brent Richter newsroom@nsnews.com

CITY of North Vancouver council is hoping a strongly worded but diplomatic letter will help persuade Port Metro Vancouver to consider other options before allowing Richardson International to build a massive expansion to its grain silos. Council is writing the letter in response to the surprise revelation in September that Richardson is hoping to get PMV approval for a 55-metre silo on the east side of its terminal in the coming months. An incensed crowd of neighbours from the 500-block of East First and Second streets gathered in council chambers Monday night to voice anger over the loss of property values and quality of life that will come if the project goes ahead bringing increased noise, pollution, and dust and the loss of inlet views. “I thought the Low Level Road was a big battle,” said John Grant, a Second Street resident. “This is right on my doorstep. . . . It’s our livelihoods because we are middle and lower-middle class people getting the biggest assets we own potentially kicked across a road.” The city’s letter calls on PMV to pursue options that will have less impact on the See Councillors page 5

NVSD plans IB program at Queen Mary elementary Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

DESPITE some misgivings about the speed with which the process moved forward, trustees of the North Vancouver school district voted to attempt to expand the district’s primary years International Baccalaureate program on Tuesday.

GREG Neal and his daughter Stephanie (10) pick their crop of Meyer lemons at their Lynn Valley home. They also have banana trees and a variety of exotic fruits growing on their property.

The school district has targeted Queen Mary elementary as the best site to implement the IB program, a process which is slated to begin in the 2013/14 school year. The IB program is intended to make students aware of their role as global citizens and to meet each student’s learning stage. The final assessment of Queen Mary’s qualifications is in the hands of the IB organization. The exclusivity of the board’s decision-making process was a cause for concern for Daniel Storms, the presidents of the North Vancouver Teachers’ Association. Storms urged the board to postpone their vote. “This motion . . . in our view, wasn’t done with teacher input or co-operation,” Storms said. “No teacher input was sought.” See Teachers page 5

Councillors ‘appalled’ at plan

From page 1

neighbours, do more consultation and submit to the city’s building permit process for the expansion. As PMV lands are under federal jurisdiction, the city has no say in what gets built on the property but PMV does consult with the city on major projects. Richardson is planning to build a $120-million concrete silo, which will allow it to almost double its export capacity in response to the rising price of grain in the international market. Richardson estimates having the increased capacity will mean another 50 jobs added to its staff of 100. But nearby property values will drop by 30 to 55 per cent if the project goes ahead, according to neighbour Michael Binkley, who told council he had consulted with several Realtors. Michael’s wife Michelle asked every member of council if they were aware of the project, whether they would still have voted in favour of the Low Level Road expansion and whether they would support seeking a legal injunction against PMV until council could reverse its decision. Every member of council denied having heard about Richardson’s plans until recent weeks but none would commit to seeking an injunction without getting a legal opinion from city lawyers. Among the most aggravating factors for council and community members: that PMV must have been aware of Richardson’s plans during the Low Level Road consultation process, meaning all the original studies on noise and pollution were of little value. Council’s approval of the Low Level Road project was done with incomplete information, Michelle argued, and should be tossed. “Council’s vote for the Low Level Road greenlight should

be considered null and void due to non-disclosure of integral information by PMV,” she said. According to a staff report, Richardson would go ahead with its expansion regardless of whether the city approved the Low Level Road project, but the Binkleys urged council to “call their bluff.” Couns. Pam Bookham and Rod Clark, who both voted against the Low Level Road project in June, were the first to speak up at Monday’s meeting. “I have to say that I felt absolutely appalled when this information came to light. I share your view that it is not conceivable that the plan was not in the works at the time we were having the discussion,” said Bookham, who added she would support “whatever means” might bring a solution to residents’ concerns. For Clark, it was a lesson in trusting PMV. “I fought very hard against the Low Level Road because I did not believe council had all the facts — that we are being asked to trust (PMV). Three months later we now know we cannot trust them. This was obviously very much in the works,” he said. Coun. Craig Keating, who was one of the Low Level Road’s stronger proponents, said he supported seeing industrial lands used for industrial purposes, but he was “dumbfounded” by Richardson’s response to the matter. Instead of charging ahead with its plans, Keating said Richardson should consider the huge profits they stand to make from an expansion and consider building the silo on the south side of existing ones where it will not impact views and noise will be mitigated. “There are options there but I think what they chose to do is the cheapest option that works best for them and to heck with the process,” he said.

Teachers not consulted on school choice From page 1

The lack of consultation was a point of concern for Trustee Barry Forward. “Our relationship with our teachers is coming out of a very difficult time,” he said. Discussing the matter with teachers is important, but assistant superintendent Mark Jefferson said the program was ultimately for students and not for staff. “It’s a highly successful program,” he told the board, adding that the international program falls under the B.C. curriculum. There is a strong demand for the IB program throughout the school district, according to Jefferson. Capilano elementary has nearly doubled its enrolment since implementing the IB program in 2008. The school is currently at capacity, which has resulted in the school being forced to turn away 22 students within its catchment area, according to Jefferson. Queen Mary was chosen over other North Vancouver elementary schools for its central location and its space for more enrolment by a working group consisting primarily of administrators and principals. “Any rationale for not including teachers in the working group?” trustee Susan Skinner asked. Skinner suggested forming a new site-selection committee consisting of parents, teachers, and First Nations educators. While allowing the merits of the IB program and the likely suitability of Queen Mary, Skinner called for more community involvement. “It comes down to process,” she said. “I won’t support this motion. I would support a deferral.” A more inclusive process would lead to more public ownership and a greater chance of success for the IB program, according to Skinner. “I think it would be a big mistake if we don’t go forward,” said trustee Christine Sacre, citing the 22 students hoping to get into the school and the three-year application process. Queen Mary’s teachers are enthusiastic about becoming an IB

school according to principal Bill Reid. “We’ve got to do this.’ That’s the feedback I’ve been getting,” he said. “I don’t believe if we deferred this decision any longer, the decision would change,” said trustee Mike McGraw. Trustee Lisa Bayne agreed. “I don’t believe in consultation for the sake of consultation. In the last three weeks there’s been a remarkable amount of consultation.” Forward put forth a motion to defer the vote until December. The motion was defeated 5-2. The motion to expand the IB program in the school district passed 5-2, with Forward and Skinner opposed. If the board had deferred its vote, there is a possibility the consideration phase would have extended into late 2013, delaying implementation for one school year, according to a board report. The IB program requires teachers to undertake continuous training. Queen Mary teachers not wishing to teach the IB program would have to transfer to another school. The cost of implementing an IB program is projected to be $300,000 over three years. It takes about three years to become a fully accredited IB program.

Setting it straight

AN Oct. 24 story, Council OKs William Griffin Redesign, stated that district homeowners might pay for the new community centre through a one-time tax levy of, on average, $46. It would in fact be a “one-time” levy, but not a “one time payment.” Homeowners would actually pay the $46 levy every year for 20 years, allowing the district to pay off a $28-million debt. Another $16 million would come from the district’s infrastructure reserve and $5 million would be borrowed internally. The $46 tax may not be levied if the district can generate revenue from the Delbrook Community Recreation Centre site.

Writing a wrong I

n the wake of the media frenzy around bullied teen Amanda Todd’s death, it’s not just schools and parents who need to take a look at their practices, but the media themselves. Most news outlets have a clear policy on the coverage of suicide: It should not be reported except under extraordinary circumstances — when it involves a high-profile figure, for instance, or when it serves the public good. This rule arises from an overwhelming body of evidence connecting the coverage of suicide — especially stories that romanticize or sensationalize it — to copycat deaths among youth. The initial coverage of Todd’s death and the events leading up to it can perhaps be justified. By highlighting the apparent connection to bullying, the media helped to promote a much-

needed dialogue on a serious issue. But as the coverage continued, it veered into dangerous territory. Todd has been endlessly eulogized; her video has been played and replayed needlessly; news outlets have posted photo galleries on their sites. On Friday, our local dailies even reported on a similar incident in New York, going so far as to spell out the method in the headline and provide links to the victim’s social media accounts. The beneficial effect of these actions — all blatant violations of psychiatric guidelines — can hardly be said to outweigh the potentially devastating consequences. If some media don’t have clear rules on this issue, they need to write them. If they do, they should dust off their policy manuals and have a good long read.

Poetic Licence

Trevor Carolan District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton should appreciate this. As they say in the TV cop-shows, “Follow the money.” Swelling density and slamming huge residential towers into other people’s communities is a surefire strategy for the wealthy to grow very wealthy. The ownership of North America’s professional sports teams includes a preponderance of real estate developers, and we know what it costs to buy one of these franchises and

pay the all-star employees. Next time you spot one of those colossal holes being excavated for another highrise tower, remember the builder’s maxim, “Where there’s muck, there’s money.” Somewhere along the line while everyone was watching hockey reruns or Desperate Housewives, people in North Vancouver stopped caring about big residential growth the way they used to — the kind that’s preparing to steamroll the district under its current developer-cosy, Talk Big, Do Little council. Like the tax increases and senior administrators’ salaries here that keep soaring, the latest proposal district officials appear willing to entertain ranges beyond MagnumSized into the Obscenely Objectionable. That’s déjà vu for the more than 1,000 local residents who signed petitions a year ago against the 11-storey complex at the top of Mount Seymour Parkway. It got rammed through against their wishes. How will they feel looking up at a tower

three times that height at the bottom of the hill near the bridgehead? 32 storeys? Right, that’s the height of the eye-sore proposed for the Seylynn neighbourhood near the bottom of Mountain Highway. Not to mention two other towers at only 24 and 28 storeys. Count Dracula help! It’s a vision straight out the Romanian Socialist Paradise of 1972. Once, it was the job of mayors, councillors and civic planners to tell developers what was, or wasn’t likely to be welcomed in municipalities. It saved time and trouble. But at the council chat about it Oct. 15, discussion about the impending Seylynnageddon height wasn’t a problem — oh, a shadow-cast or two maybe — but the obscene new benchmark of 32-storeys wasn’t a problem. Hell, district planners came up with the idea themselves. No, the hot topic for those councillors who could stay awake was “parking lot ratios.” Wait a minute. Wasn’t the

original Seylynn five-acre site offered for redevelopment precisely because it’s walking distance from Phibbs Exchange and all the commuter buses a happy young renter desires? Parking? Ernie Crist died for this? What parallel universe are Walton, his councillors and planners living in? A previous plan for the Seylynn site ran off the rails. It called for two 25-storey towers and clustered lower buildings. Way too big, but that was the deal. Now another development championed by Mark Sager, former mayor of West Vancouver — who was also involved in the original proposal — wants to fatten things up big time. The new proposal’s impact makes the original deal look like Legoblock units. Don’t believe the district hall sale job: What’s being hustled now is vastly different. It’s an entirely new proposal and it wants cutting off at the knees to be brought back up with a seldom-used See 32-storey page 11

Virtually giving it away not always a virtue

WHO’S real, and who’s a pretender?

This debate continues to rage, and we can thank the Internet. You know, the Internet — that place where all information is submitted electronically and there’s no overriding body policing its veracity. It seems that Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia that was once considered the height of democratic information sharing, has been infiltrated by professionals. That enrages some of Wikipedia’s admirers, who love the site because it’s written and edited by volunteers. They apparently believe that he or she who is not paid for his or her work is automatically free of bias. In an article entitled Is Wikipedia Going Commercial?, Salon.com’s Maura Ewing reports that people with enough social cachet to merit inclusion in this world-famous encyclopedia are paying “profitseeking writers” to do their biographies proud. Presumably, the bigwigs hiring writers to update their profiles are doing so to ensure that the information in them is correct and that it accentuates the positive. That isn’t kosher, according to the “die-hard Wikipedians” editing the website for free. They object to the fact that, for example, entertainment-relations consultant Soraya Field Fiorio charges musicians and writers

Going Coastal

Kate Zimmerman $30 an hour to edit their existing profiles, and $250 to write them from scratch. These profiles don’t go straight to print — Wikipedians discuss in cyberspace whether each topic, article or fact should be allowed to fly. Like others who submit to Wikipedia, if Fiorio wants her submission to be accepted, she has to defend it against its detractors. Still, the Wikipedians disapprove. It’s an interesting war. I don’t know how anybody can afford to donate their skills to Wikipedia, nor do I understand why they do so. One Wikipedia contributor quoted by Salon. com claims to have made 63,000 unpaid contributions about comic books and celebrities since 2005. This particular fellow says he has a need to “put things in order.” That’s something paid scribes also do daily; one of a writer’s key responsibilities is sifting through existing information

and arranging it in a neat and logical way. Yet it sounds as though Wikipedians view such professionals with suspicion. Outside Wiki-world, journalists who are paid for their work must now contend with competition from bloggers who donate their efforts to cyberspace for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they have something important to say, sometimes they simply need to be heard, sometimes they crave fame, and sometimes they’re looking for financial support from advertisers. Many bloggers are not professional writers and don’t have editors watching out for grammatical, spelling or factual errors, insupportable logic, or tasteless slurs against innocent people. Yet they’re gaining more and more visibility — they’re often quoted by the mainstream news media as if random, often whimsical opinions ought to be taken seriously just because they’ve been posted on the worldwide web. This past week, Internet trolls, vigilante-style, decided to identify a man as the key tormentor of bullied teenager Amanda Todd. The police quickly determined this person to be completely blameless, but not before the media jumped on board and printed his name. Some online “researchers” and bloggers are good, many aren’t, but nobody seems to care too much which is which. One crucial difference: hacktivists and bloggers have the option

of remaining safely anonymous while they fling around accusations, unlike police officers and journalists. And people who write for a living, like Fiorio, are being challenged by Wikipedians who don’t. To them, the fact that Fiorio accepts money for doing a job they’re willing to do for free somehow taints her as a legitimate supplier of content. How perverse. A similar argument seems to be bubbling in the heads of people who object to the Globe

and Mail starting to charge for its online newspaper, as do the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Of course everybody enjoyed getting these papers for free — it was wonderful being able to access all a newspaper’s reporting, columns and feature writing, its obituaries and reviews, its photographs and other design elements, simply by Googling it daily. Those of us who’ve always subscribed to newspapers in print form understand and

accept that running them costs money. Writers, editors and photographers deserve to be paid for their expertise, just as other workers do. Maybe Wikipedians weren’t aware that if you give away work that’s actually worth something, you undercut its value for everybody. When other people get paid for what you do gratis, you start thinking of them as prostitutes and of yourself as sadly taken-forgranted. But whose fault is that? kate@katezimmerman.ca

Cyclist beats cyclist in ‘path rage’ incident RCMP seek public’s aid in Ironworkers assault

James Weldon jweldon@nsnews.com

POLICE are on the hunt for a hotheaded cyclist who attacked a fellow rider on the Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Crossing in what appears to be a case of sidewalk rage. The 49-year-old victim was heading south on

the bridge’s east walkway Wednesday afternoon when he saw another cyclist approaching, according to investigators. The southbound man moved to one side and stopped to allow the other rider to pass, as is convention. But instead of whizzing by, the second cyclist stopped and allegedly punched the first man twice in the head. He then put him in a chokehold, according to police, and punched him six to eight more times before riding away. The stranger never said a word throughout the assault, they added. The victim, a Langley resident, made his way to the far end of the crossing before catching a ride with a passing motorist. The attack left him with a black eye and numerous bruises to

the head. “Poor guy,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, a spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. “He was really shaken up.” It’s not clear what motivated the assault, but investigators believe it may have been prompted by the fact the victim was riding in the wrong direction on the narrow walkway. By convention, southbound cyclists are supposed to stick to the west side of the bridge. De Jong said he had heard of similar confrontations in the past on other routes. “That’s the only thing we can think of,” he said. “It’s cyclist path rage. I’m not an avid cyclist, but I guess people get pretty possessive of their space.”

The incident comes less than two weeks after cycling advocates drew media attention to safety issues associated with the bridge’s sidewalks. The paths, which are little more than a metre wide in places, are too narrow for cyclists and pedestrians to pass safely, resulting in occasional collisions. The province has said it is aware of the problem, and is currently reviewing its options, with an eye to making improvements by next summer. The suspect in Wednesday’s incident is described as a Caucasian man, 40-50 years old, about 200 pounds with sandy or reddish, medium-length hair. He was wearing a yellow jacket. Anyone with information is asked to call the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311.

School board plans to rebuild CAPSULE comments BBQ BCLEAN Argyle, Handsworth schools Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

REBUILDING, not repairing, two schools highly susceptible to earthquake damage is the top priority in the North Vancouver school district’s $155-million five-year capital plan.

The board of trustees voted to approve the plan Tuesday. The board is asking the province for $60.4 million to replace Argyle and Handsworth secondaries because of inadequate seismic protection. “The (cost) to rebuild the school is undetermined,” said district facilities co-ordinator Ian Abercrombie, discussing Argyle. “We’re in the process of finalizing those costs.” The request comes just five months after the

province put Argyle on a list of 14 schools approved for seismic upgrades. The province has budgeted a total of $122 million for the upgrades. A three-classroom building built in 1969 at Argyle carries a High 1 rating, meaning the highest risk of irreparable structural failure in the event of an earthquake. A two-storey classroom and another gym at Argyle, each built in 1960, were rated with a risk of High 3 and Medium. A two-storey classroom and a gymnasium at the school, each built in 1969, also carry a High 3 risk. A High 3 risk means the collapse of some building elements are likely and the structure needs substantial re-enforcement. A medium or low risk means the building can be brought up to seismic safety standards through mitigating work. The north and east classrooms at Handsworth earned the High 1 rating, while the cafeteria, See Seismic page 11

Mayor Darrell Mussatto conferred the Freedom of the City and presented cadet leadership with a ceremonial brass key to the city Monday night. The cadets marched into council chambers, led by a bagpiper before the ceremony. The Freedom of the City recognition is given to “individuals and groups in our city who have contributed significantly to our community and demonstrated leadership,” Mussatto said. The cadets represent much more than their

skills in orienteering, camping, and first aid, Mussatto said. “They also participate in ceremonial events like our Canada Day parade and provide community service in our city. The cadets develop a great sense of citizenship and personal discipline that strengthens them to become leaders in our community,” Mussatto said. He added that he was particularly impressed with the cadets’ commitment to personal fitness and training. Accepting the key, Capt. Chris Farmer, commanding officer of the squadron thanked the city. “This is a great honour, not only for myself but for the cadets. This really shows that the community that we’re a part of cares about what we do and we care so much about what we do in the community, it’s nice to be recognized,” he said. — Brent Richter

32-storey Seylynn tower out of scale From page 6 ingredient: common sense. The district is not Surrey Central. It’s not Vancouver across the moat where big-buck developers have brainwashed the aging hippies running council into the Helsinki Syndrome: “Think like we do.” So who’s selling out the district’s character and landscape features? Disturbingly, Walton and senior planners don’t deny the outrageous increased height proposals have come from inside district hall, not from the new developer. Their rationale is that changes to Keith Road at Mountain Highway oblige a rightof-way through the Seylynn turf — a give-back, so 32 storeys. That’s a gift, hog heaven for any developer! It was Ministry of Highway bureaucrats who changed the same piece of road that first wrecked Seylynn’s functioning single-family neighourhood. Now district bureaucrats are set to give away the farm again. “Would you like fries with that, sir?” As justification, Walton points to the official community plan that took seven grinding years to complete. Critics argue the developer-friendly OCP boils down to instructions about where to plant the “Build Here Now” signage. An alternative? The pattern is not far off. As local resident and naturalist Elise Roberts says, “Any increase in population here is going to have an impact on green space. Any new development has got to be consistent with the size and density of the North Shore Winter Club — that would fit with the character of the neighbourhood.” The club’s 16-storey tower fits. To create a community, lower the height and spread around smaller buildings. Community observer Lyle Craver underscores this view: “In 2009 councillors mentioned they were already giving up many concessions based on the previous applicant’s well-established track record. That’s the baseline. We don’t know these new people. But now 100 more units are added, plus a third highrise tower, and 75 per cent of the originally proposed commercial space is removed.” Densification, urbanization; this district gang is out of control. So much for Walton’s view of “a complete community.” Margaret Atwood warns that “Gigantism precedes extinction.” The next election in two years can’t come fast enough. What’s at stake here is the very nature of the district. The public hearing on the development was tentatively set for Nov. 6. PoeticLicence.NS@gmail.com

Seismic upgrades requested

From page 9

automotive centre, main gymnasium, west gymnasium, and music room were each rated High 2. A two-storey classroom and a gymnasium at the school, each built in 1969, also carry a High 3 risk. If the province approves the capital plan, Windsor secondary and Balmoral will each receive seismic upgrades of $3.5 and $3 million, respectively. The school board also requested $12 million to replace old facilities at Seymour Heights elementary. The capital plan also asks for substantial building replacements at Queensbury elementary and Lynnmour community schools, totalling approximately $17 million. Upgrades at Seycove secondary projected to cost $5.6 million were included in the capital plan. The plan also calls for renovations at Cleveland, Upper Lynn, Norgate, Larson, Boundary, Ross Road, Montroyal, Braemar, Sherwood Park, Eastview, Brooksbank, and Capilano elementaries, totalling close to $35 million.

NV band’s music strikes a chord

Headwater volunteers with Health Arts Society, bringing music to people in care Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

STANDING in front of the audience at the health care facility, the band plays a country song, some Johnny Cash ditty that first hit the charts when John Diefenbaker was prime minister and doctors still smoked.

ACTIVE START AND FUNDAMENTALS Special Olympics B.C. launches its sports programs for young children at WV Community Centre. page 16 FALL FITNESS Shaun Karp helps you get back into a regular indoor routine despite gym phobia. page 14 HEALTH NOTES page 15

The crowd is primarily elderly people, many of whom suffer from dementia, but as the melody unfurls the memory returns and they start to sing along. “You really get to see playing music and the wonderful effect it has on people. As soon as we started doing these concerts in care, we could see very quickly the real joy you were able to bring to people who are stuck in a residential care facility and don’t really get to get out and see anything, let alone have a concert,” says Matt Bryant, a founding member of the band Headwater. The group recently packed up their banjos, mandolins, steel guitars, and harmonized vocals for a series of shows for seniors in health care facilities in Surrey, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, Chilliwack and Vancouver. The shows were part of the radio station 102.7 The Peak’s Peak Performance Project, and each concert was organized by the Health Arts Society, which is dedicated to bringing art programs to people in health care. The earliest days of the band stretch back to Bryant’s days at Lynn Valley elementary when he started jamming with Jonas Shandel. “We’ve been playing together since we were about 12,” he says. “We just really liked working with each other, we really liked the way the music happened.” The group consists of four regular members with occasional help from a rotating cast of drummers, but Bryant and Shandel share songwriting duties. “He’s got a more instinctive approach to music that really comes from the heart, and I’ve got more of a brainy, analytical approach, and they work pretty well together. And we’ve been friends for a long time so we can call each other’s bullshit,” Bryant says. Inspired by folk, pop, and country, Headwater is the rare group that sometimes seeks out a disgruntled audience. “We’ve got quite a history of making music on the ferry, because, as we found out, there’s a couple hundred people sitting there with nothing to do for an hour and a half. So they become a very willing audience very quickly if you’re a bit gentle with the start of the show,” Bryant says. Playing for ferry passengers led to regular gigs with the Health Arts Society. “We basically met the founder of the Health Arts Society on a ferry where we’ve staged a number of concerts over the years,” Bryant says. “He thought we’d be a great fit to come into health care facilities because he saw that we could just grab an audience pretty quickly and that we were pretty See Performances page 17

Don’t let gym phobia keep you from exercising

WITH daylight becoming increasingly scarce, colder weather, and endless rainfall around the corner, many will soon turn to indoor activities to stay fit. For most, that means returning to a structured exercise regimen at a gym or fitness centre. But too many who have made commitments to stay in shape this fall will fail to follow through out

Personal Best Shaun Karp

of trepidation of actually

entering a gym. The first and most important thing to know is that you do not need to be fit already to join a fitness club. In fact, the majority of gym members today are not there to pump iron or train for an athletic pursuit, but simply to trim fat, reduce stress, and improve their overall heath. Maybe you have attended a gym before, but found the culture there did not match your goals? If so, know that all fitness clubs are different. While

some do cater to athletes, others target larger groups like casual gym-goers, females, or seniors, and most attract a highly diverse clientele. Perhaps you are put off by the thought of high membership costs or large crowds? Try to look for a clean, modern gym that fits into your price range and isn’t too busy. Large-scale fitness centres suit most gym users well at a reasonable price, but are often quite busy during peak hours.

If you prefer more intimate surroundings for your workouts, try a private health club or spa. These are typically less crowded but can be pricey. Also consider local community centre gyms, which are generally affordable and may only lack specialty equipment that you likely do not require. Regardless of the type of gym you ultimately attend, know that the staff are there to provide advice. Most fitness clubs also offer orientations, or better still, free initial visits and

introductory rates. To make the transition to indoor exercise even easier, consider scheduling a few sessions with a personal trainer who will create your own personalized fitness program and help you set and achieve realistic goals. So what’s your excuse? Move your workout inside this fall and take a giant leap toward a healthier lifestyle! Shaun Karp is a certified personal trainer.

NORTH SHORE SAFETY COUNCIL

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Thursday, November 1st, 2012 12:00noon – 2:00pm DELBROOK COMMUNITY RECREATION CENTRE 600 West Queens, North Vancouver (Light lunch and refreshments provided) PRESENTATION: Dr. Sam Gutman, ER physician, LGH, and President of Rockdoc Consulting, on:

Balancing Risk: Injury Prevention while still having fun!

Despite our best efforts, mountain bike accidents continue to occur, some with serious results. What can be done to do more than simply contain the risk? What can be done to reduce the injury rate? How does parental desire for a safer sport “fit” with an inherently high risk-taking generation?

HUNDREDS of dragon boat racers gathered at Whey-ah-Wichen (Cates Park) last month for the inaugural Paddle the North Shore, a regatta presented by the local dragon boat community and community partners.

Headwater’s concert playlists at the care facilities are generally evenly divided between their

own compositions and bluegrass and country songs going back to the 1940s. “With the old standard tunes people all know the words, which is kind of amazing because a lot of the time you’re dealing with people who’ve got senile dementia or Alzheimer’s.

SPECIAL One Hour Private Session $50

Who do you know that works out at least 3 times a week in a fitness center, carefully watches their diet and still can’t lose weight? If that person is you, I’ve got good news. The body of your dreams can become a reality just like it has for many North Shore residents thanks to the folks at Laser Body Sculpting in North Vancouver. Here are some great tips that you probably won’t hear about from your diet consultant, personal trainer or medical doctor. • It’s not the amount of calories you eat but the food combinations which determines what you burn and what you store as fat. Whenever you eat a starch, a starchy vegetable, a sugar, a piece of fruit or even a protein drink with fruit flavor, your body will immediately produce insulin. When insulin is present in your blood, it acts like a security guard against burning any fat. That's right, it is physiologically impossible for you to burn fat when insulin is present in the blood. Having a healthy meal while dieting doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice tasty pleasurable food. An absolute must though is to avoid

starchy veggies or sugary foods including fruit when you are trying to lose. • Avoid diet sodas,“workout or energy”drinks. Many of the so called "workout drinks" or“energy drinks”are the worst offenders when trying to lose weight. This includes low cal or zero calorie diet sodas. There are only two kinds of people who drink diet sodas: Those who are overweight – and those that will be. Mixing artificial sweeteners with low calorie carbonation can actually slow down your metabolism. The good news is that there are many tasty juice drinks, chocolate drinks and even café lattes that can promote weight loss. You just need to know what to look for. It’s the ratios of carbs, proteins and fats that make the difference in weight loss. • Traditional Dieting can result in fat and muscle loss. Most traditional diets force the body to seek energy not just from fat but from protein found in your muscles. Many

dieters think they are losing weight just from fat but the reality is they are losing weight from muscle as well. Before you start any diet program get a Body Mass Index test done first. The BMI can tell you many important health factors about your body including the percentage of muscle weight you have. Research has shown that people who diet incorrectly can do irreparable harm to their bones and muscles. Make sure your diet is a healthy one and monitor yourself with a BMI test to make sure the weight you lose is just from fat. • Get a FREE Consultation on the fast, healthy weight loss plan

ANDY Demeule, director of fitness for the North Shore Keep Well Society, leads seniors in fitness classes, five days per week.

Fitness guru inspires a healthier community

Keep Well’s tireless leader ensures seniors stay strong TWENTY-FIVE years ago, a group of retired nurses and health care workers started the North Shore Keep Well Society.

Memory Lane

Their goal was to provide health and wellness services to seniors. Today, at seven sites from Deep Cove to Gleneagles, Keep Well volunteers see 300 seniors every week. There are at least three keys to Keep Well’s success. One is the blend of services — blood pressure checks, massage, nutrition information — and social connection

fueled by coffee and cookies. Next, program volunteers are seniors. When peers help peers, something called “the spark” has been observed at the Keep Well sites, an ephemeral but unmistakable exchange that occurs between the giving and the receiving. The third factor is Andy Demeule, Keep Well’s director of fitness.

Laura Anderson

All his life, from his boyhood in the Fort Rouge area of Winnipeg to raising his own children in North Vancouver, Andy has been interested in sports and physical activity. For 30 years, in his spare time after work and on weekends, Andy played sports and coached community teams. While volunteering at recreation centres in the early ’90s, he became interested in fitness for people with physical and intellectual challenges, a category that included some seniors. Back then, most adaptive programs, indeed, most fitness programs, were geared towards young people and youthful adults. Once people hit 50, whatever their capacity, there was little available for them in the way of fitness. Around this time, Andy heard about Doreen Player who ran the SAIL (Seniors See Instructor page 26

Backed by this wealth of experience and resources, The Royale Astoria has all the grandeur of a fine hotel, yet with the warmth and comfort of your own home.

Instructor aims to make a difference From page 25

Active In Living) program in Burnaby. Inspired by her work, Andy says he “decided to make fitness for older adults my future.” He became certified as a fitness instructor and personal trainer and began teaching a range of classes for seniors and people with disabilities at recreation centres in North Vancouver. Andy’s new role dovetailed happily with the existing Keep Well programs. If professionally led exercise classes were added to Keep Well, then they could reinforce the society’s goal of encouraging people to take responsibility for their own health. When Elise Shepherd, then co-ordinator at Keep Well, met Andy, she told him, “Have I got a job for you.” “He met everyone and fit in right away,” Shepherd recalls. “Andy’s got a very easy, relaxed way with seniors and a great sense of humour. He knows everyone in his classes and pays attention to

their needs. Andy lifts people up a little bit every time he shows up but it’s a two-way street. He gives a lot and he receives a lot from the seniors.” Andy led five classes every day, five days a week for Keep Well and at community centres across the North Shore until 2007 when, shockingly, he was diagnosed with lung cancer. Andy’s family and friends, his fitness level — and perhaps some of that spark — supported him through surgery and recovery. His personal and professional fitness routine adapted: he and Max, the family dog, avoid hills during their walks and Andy now teaches one class a day, five days a week for Keep Well. “I admire the people that make it to class every week. I’d miss my seniors if I did less,” he says. “For some of these people, this is the only physical or social contact they’ll have all week.” After each class, Andy reminds people to exercise at home, to pay attention to their nutrition and to keep well. “So I can

see you for a long, long time,” he tells them. “If you’re not here next week, I’ll presume you’re out there doing something really fantastic. We’re all fortunate no matter how unfortunate we feel. We’re standing. Take a moment to reflect on that.” Andy mingles with each group, talking to this person and that one as people greet each other, sit down for a hand or foot massage, get their blood pressure tested or make their way to the coffee bar. “I’m just a regular guy trying to do my best to make a difference,” Andy says as he leaves the gymnasium in the brightening morning to give a lift home to one of his seniors.

Educate yourself and your kids about money YOU find about 169 million results when you Google “teach children money.” But Canadian parents are still unsure about the best ways to teach their own children how to be financially smart. According to a recent ING survey,92percentoftheparents accepted the sole responsibility for this vital education. But 61 per cent admitted they hadn’t really tried to do anything. They found it easier to talk about bullying, smoking and drugs than about money. Only 22 per cent of British Columbians gave themselves an A in personal knowledge about money, the survey found. If you are in the remaining 78 per cent, let’s turn it around: See this as an opportunity to educate both yourself and your children. Focus on three main areas: ONE: Balance instant vs. delayed gratification by differentiating needs and wants. List spending items in order of priority (needs first, then

Money Matters Mike Grenby

wants); discuss when saving money to have more to spend later is more appropriate than spending and enjoying now. TWO: Realize outgo can’t exceed income, and the costs of borrowing. The concept is simple; refer back to the preceding point to help with implementation. THREE: Put your money to work. Explain how interest works for you when you save (rather than against you when you borrow), and the concept of investments going up in value – along with the risk

of loss. Always tie these lessons to the child’s reality, whatever her or his age. For some ideas, see http://life.familyeducation. com/money-and-kids/ parenting/36332.html Every family will have its own feelings about how much to reveal to children about the family’s finances. Discuss this with your partner if you have one or with other family members/ families. Read about the topic, then do what feels right for you. The same applies to giving allowances. Once the child starts to work outside the home, explore basic tax planning such as filing his/her tax return to build up RRSP contribution room even if there is no tax to pay, or shifting income to lower the family’s total tax burden. Mike Grenby is a columnist and independent personal financial advisor; he’ll answer questions in this column as space allows but cannot reply personally — email mike@grenby.com.

JUST when you thought B.C.’s photos Tim Pawsey archaic liquor laws were edging closer to MOUNTAIN vistas and cactus-lined trails are featured with the high-altitude plantings normality, things become in Argentina’s Cafayate in the Calchaquies Valleys. The San Pedro de Yacochuya curiouser and curiouser. Torrontes 2011, in the photo below, from Finca Yacochuya is highly rated. At least it appears that way. Almost like Alice in Wonderland, B.C.’s Liquor Control and Licensing Branch seems to live in a world of its own, ignoring its mandate to act in the interest of the public good. How can we come to any other conclusion, following the branch’s decision to deny the Belfry Theatre permission to hold its annual fine wine auction for charity? The now-cancelled auction, an event that is standard practice for many non-profits, has been an important fundraiser for the Victoria theatre company, which has not had any problems getting a Special Occasion License in the past. The very purpose of fine wine auctions is to offer people the chance to bid on rare and hard to find wines or unusual formats, often as not from collectors’ cellars. The practice has been going on for decades, so it’s strange indeed that the licensing branch should choose to flex its muscle at this particular time. Furthermore, the notion that only wines purchased from B.C. Liquor stores may be auctioned is downright ludicrous, and you can be sure that the individual who issued this ruling is well aware of that. For the BCLCB to “test the waters” and drop hints that it might choose to reverse its ruling further smacks of abuse of authority in this instance, as the chill towards non-profits and charities is now widespread with the implied threat from allpowerful inspectors that they may at any time choose to deny a licence, or worse, shut down an event in progress. The actions of the BCLCB are not restricted to this case alone. In recent months there have been other reports of over-enthusiastic enforcement pertaining to special occasion licences. As to why, your guess is as good as mine. But somebody, starting with the minister responsible, needs to answer for this unacceptable form of bureaucratic bullying, and fix the problem at hand to enable legitimate charity fine wine auctions to continue as they have for years.

HONG Kong WinterFest activities celebrated in the courtyard of Hullett House on Kowloon Peninsula.

HONG KONG’S HULLETT HOUSE RETURNS TO FORMER GLORY

1881 Heritage: The Former Marine Police Headquarters Compound, constructed in 1884, is located in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. The site is now officially renamed as 1881 Heritage. The Kowloon compound used to be occupied by the Marine Police, now a unit within the Hong Kong Police Force. The compound is a declared monument since 1994 as it is one of the four oldest surviving government buildings in Hong Kong. The Compound and the Old Kowloon Fire Station were re-developed in a project headed by architect Daniel Lin, and opened in 2009. — Wikipedia

Peter Neville-Hadley Contributing Writer

1881 Heritage

HONG KONG: Guests wallowing in the luxury of the Peninsula Hotel used to look out at a colonial mansion atop a neighbouring hill with some puzzlement. Why, when land was being reclaimed for construction from the harbour all around the Kowloon Peninsula, was a low-rise building in an overgrown leafy spot with views across to Hong Kong Island, surrounded by a forest of cranes constructing towers, allowed to go unmolested? The brick-tiled building, with its deep-set verandahs from the days before airconditioning, was Hullett House, formerly the headquarters of the Marine Police and built for them in 1881. The main house, stable block and a former fire station and crew quarters at the base of the hill were all under preservation orders and so escaped the wrecking ball. Long abandoned, the site has now been renamed 1881 Heritage and transformed into a mixed shopping complex and boutique hotel with five restaurants that manages to be at once redolent of colonial Hong Kong and of the local obsession with brand-name gewgaws. From their hilltop viewpoint the Marine Police had a 200-degree view of the harbour, and their own dock down at its wave-lapped base. The sea was moved a block away behind a cultural centre built on reclaimed land many years ago and the front part of the hill has now been sculpted to provide an easy, escalatorassisted journey up past Chanel, Vacheron Constantin and similar boutiques to the restored mansion. Just as the police kept an eye on the harbour, so the shipping stared back, mainly at the circular white tower atop which a two-metre-wide metal ball was made to slide downwards at exactly 1 p.m., enabling ship captains to reset their chronometers. The tower now stands on a little promontory of its own, and a modern mechanism lets the ball drop at the right time. The nearby cannon was once used to gain mariners’ attention for warnings of approaching gales, the hoisting of typhoon warning flags (whose odd shapes now appear as insets on all Hong Kong’s television channels when necessary) and of anticipated wind shifts that might drive ships ashore on the Peninsula or the

PETS PETS FOR ADOPTION

Dog walking builds confidence RARELY a day goes by that my dogs do not get out for a walk. It is our daily ritual and unless Mother Nature is dumping some hideous concoction from the grey skies above or my dogs are a bit lame due to an injury or feeling their age, we hit the trails for a hike. Canine Connection It seems a bit redundant to speak about walking one’s Joan Klucha dog but there also seems to be a misunderstanding as to the importance a walk with your dog makes to a dog’s mental and physical health. Stating the obvious, walking your dog helps keep it in shape and maintain a healthy body weight. Just like with humans, a good walk, jog or hike for your dog promotes a healthy cardiovascular system, detoxifies the body and relieves stress. But walking your dog also improves its mental health in huge ways. Dogs, being descendants of wolves, have a sort of nomadic streak within them. They like to wander. Male or female dogs, when left to their own devices, will wander and check out the neighbourhood. To a dog this serves a few purposes, it satisfies that latent instinct to wander through their territory and be social with other dogs within the area. It also boosts confidence. I’m not suggesting people allow their dogs to wander. I am

suggesting that people make a concerted effort to walk their dogs every day to assist their dogs in satisfying their natural urges. Walking your dog helps boost its overall confidence because the act of walking with your dog improves the pack bond. Referring back to wolves, dogs have inherited that instinctual need to belong to a pack (social network) and to know where they fit in within that pack. A dog knows all of the members of its social network personally. Its immediate pack would be family members or those that share their daily routine, i.e. those with which they eat, sleep and converse. They also have what I refer to as transient pack members. These are members of their social network who they may meet at the dog park or a dog walker who might take them out. While a dog is within this transient social network, they form a pack or bond, albeit transient, while they are together. Even though a dog may form this transient bond, the bond with their family pack members takes precedence because the consistency of that pack creates a sense of security and belonging within a dog. When a dog does not receive the daily interaction that a walk from its immediate pack provides, it attempts to satisfy that instinctual need with its transient pack. Since that pack is well, transient, a dog never really feels totally secure. The result may be a dog that shows fear or hyperactivity in situations where it may naturally need to defer to a trusted pack member, such as when in a strange environment or upon meeting new people. If the dog does not feel that the pack member is reliable, due to an absence in the dog’s daily routine, it will display inappropriate behaviours. Surprisingly, taking your dog for a walk every day will often

Walks improve relationship visit. You are not simply being dragged down the street or letting them run around willy-nilly at the dog park. So take a your dog for a walk, even if all you have time for that day, is going around the block. That time together will improve your relationship and your dog’s confidence.

From page 35 help with this. This walk can last 15 minutes or 50 minutes but during this time you, as the dog’s owner or leader, are interacting with the dog, be it running through an obedience exercise or sitting at street corners or practicing a recall if you are walking off-leash in a designated area. You are taking the time to find a balance between actively engaging with your dog, along with allowing them to sniff, mark territory and

Giezen named a Pacwest 1st team all-star

NORTH Vancouver’s Robbie Giezen was recently named a Pacwest first-team all-star for his stellar play with the Capilano University Blues this season.

allowed only one against many of the top teams in the province, beating West Van 3-0 in the semifinals and South Delta 3-1 in the final to win their second straight Bridgman. The tournament was also a showcase for Haughn’s replacement as the team’s top gunner. Centre forward and co-captain Stephanie Norlander, a player who has also worked with the national junior and senior teams, lit up opponents throughout the tournament. Norlander notched 14 of the team’s 26 goals at the Bridgman, including five of the six goals that Handsworth scored in the semifinal and final. Royals head coach Paul Winstanley said that while Haughn and Norlander both know how to get great results, they do it in very different ways. “Hannah was very skilled and quick, Steph is more of a goal scorer,” he said. “She drives to the net and she’s just so determined to score. She’s just very difficult to stop, very skilled in the circle.”

The Seycove secondary grad finished third in the league in scoring, racking up seven goals in 12 games. This was Giezen’s second stint with the Blues. He played in 2008, helping Capilano win provincial and national titles while earning B.C. rookie of the year and first-team all-star honours. Giezen was joined on the 2012 all-star list by Sutherland grad Gianmarco Pensato, a midfielder who was named to the second team. Giezen and Pensato were two bright spots in an otherwise disappointing season for the Blues as the men missed the Pacwest playoffs, finishing in seventh place with a record of two wins, three ties and nine losses. The Capilano women also struggled this season, finishing in eighth place with a 1-4-9 record. None of the Blues women were named to the first or second all-star team. ••• North Vancouver rugby player Jess Neilson is seeking the public’s support in an effort to help at-risk youths living in Bangkok slums. Neilson, a Carson Graham secondary student and rugby team member, also plays for Meraloma Rugby Club and is a member of the B.C. U18 women’s provincial team. This is the second year Neilson has organized a rugby cleat drive, having partnered with former national team player Eddie Evans. Evans runs the Nak Suu

FOOTBALL Senior AA WINDSOR @ HANDSWORTH Nov. 2, 2 p.m.

ANY time you field a provincial championship winning high school team with only four Grade 12 players, things likely look good for a repeat performance the following year.

But what if those four players were all university-bound stars? Does the math still work? It certainly has so far for the Handsworth Royals senior girls field hockey team. Last season the Royals won the first AAA provincial title in team history thanks in large part to a quartet of stellar Grade 12s, including Hannah Haughn, who in her spare time last year helped Canada’s senior women’s national team to a fourth place finish at the Pan American Games. Haughn just wrapped up her first season at the University of British Columbia where she was named the Canada West Rookie of the

Year. The other three grads were Amanda Watson who is now at the University of Victoria, Kylie Nabata who went to McGill and Kendra Perrin at Duke. That’s some high-powered talent to replace but it seems there was plenty of skill and experience left over to keep the ball rolling this year. Fourteen players from last year’s team are back and they haven’t missed a beat, winning every game so far this season heading into the North Shore playoffs which begin tomorrow. The Royals staked their claim as this year’s team to beat at the Bridgman Cup, winning the prestigious Victoriabased tournament over the Thanksgiving weekend. Handsworth scored 26 goals and

North Shore final four on field this week

From page 37

Norlander has joined with co-captain Sophie Plasteras, a centre midfielder, to take over the leadership of the team, said Winstanley. “They’ve really stepped it up.” It doesn’t hurt that they’re leading a group that includes 14 players who won last year. “They know what it takes to win and they work hard and play for each other,” said Winstanley, adding that he gets production from each of the 18 players on his roster. The Royals finished first in North Shore league play and will take on West Vancouver to start the playoffs on Monday at 3 p.m. at Rutledge Field. Handsworth beat West Van 6-0 on Oct. 23 but that was a relatively meaningless game with playoff positions and provincial berths already decided. Tomorrow will be a lot tougher, said Winstanley. “Because it’s do-or-die now it’s going to be tough,” he said. “They’re a good team so we’re just going to have to work hard. Every game now we’re going to have to work really hard and outwork the other team. It doesn’t really matter how much talent you have, you have to put in the work.” The other North Shore semifinal also has some interesting storylines. #4 DARIAN DURANT

Collingwood, last year’s silver medalists at the AA provincials, played against the big AAA North Shore squads this season and finished second behind Handsworth. The Cavaliers will take on the Argyle Pipers, a team coming off of a huge 4-3 win over Carson Graham Oct. 22. The Pipers came into their matchup against Carson trailing the Eagles by one and needing a win to make the playoffs and the provincial AAA championships. They got their win, leapfrogging both Carson and West Van to finish in third place. “Argyle has a lot of grit and determination and work hard,” said Winstanley. “They’ve hung in there and managed to beat Carson Graham in the league which was a great win to get into provincials and eliminate Carson.” Collingwood and Argyle will play Tuesday at 3 p.m. at Rutledge Field. The North Shore final will be played Thursday at 3 p.m. at Rutledge. Once North Shore bragging rights are settled the teams will focus on provincials with Handsworth, Argyle and West Van all headed to the AAA championships. Now that Handsworth finally won its first championship, it’ll be interesting to see if the titles keep coming. “I hope so — 14 of them know what it takes and how hard it is to win at provincials,” said Winstanley. “I think that’s going to hold us in good stead. They know that once you get to quarterfinals it’s just very tough.”

program in Bangkok, which targets at-risk children living in five slum communities, aiming to make a positive impact on their lives through rugby training and life skills development. Last year, Neilson collected 80 pairs of cleats to send to the Nak SuuTigers (Thai for “noble warrior”) and hopes to increase her donations to more than 100 this year, she says. The drive will run from Oct. 29 to Nov. 3. Cleats will be accepted at Carson Graham as well as the Meraloma clubhouse at Connaught Park in Kitsilano. One final drop-off opportunity will be at the Year End True Blue Mini Jamboree at UBC on Nov. 18. Small cleats (children’s sizes) are preferred, but all donations in good shape will be accepted.

SUTHERLAND, Isobel T. Oct 19, 2012 It is with great sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved family member Isobel Sutherland after a brave battle with cancer. Originally from Scotland, Isobel came to Canada over 40 years ago and has called West Vancouver home since 1989. After retiring from many years in the financial services industry, Isobel continued to enjoy her life here on the North Shore and stayed involved in various community activities. She leaves behind many friends at both Kiwanis Court and the West Vancouver United Church as well as dear family members who will miss her very much. We would like to send special thanks to the staff and caregivers at both Lions Gate Hospital and the North Shore Hospice for all their efforts and kindness.

RASMUSSEN - Eggert (Ed) It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved 'Opa', Ed Rasmussen. Ed was a long term and well respected Realtor on the North Shore beginning his career at Waddell and Associates in 1967. In 1972 he left Waddell as top salesman and formed Delco Realty. Our Father was a visionary, very trustworthy and family-oriented and soon expanded to build many residential homes, 5 multifamily developments as well as 1 commercial venture on Esplanade. He also was responsible for several land assembly sites for future developments, always in touch with planners and participating in District and City of NV council meetings. In 1988, Delco joined forces with Sutton West Coast where Ed befriended and helped so many people along the way until his retirement in 1998. Ed also founded 3 successful pool halls, one of which was the popular Jazzy Q’s on Esplanade in NV. He was a talented musician who could play any song by ear. He was the life of the party with his organ, accordion, harmonica and whistling talents. In Ed’s later years he lived the good life with with his loving wife Sandra at his side. In the summer they resided at Hotel Lake in a picturesque log cabin he built surrounded by family and fun. They went on numerous boating trips exploring the Desolation Sound, Gulf Islands all the way up to Bella Bella. When the rainy days came they would embark on epic RV trips all across Canada, the USA and all the way down to the Baja Peninsula in Mexico where family would fly in to meet them. Their second home became 'The Sands RV Resort' in Palm Springs where they were part of a loving circle of friends who reconvened each winter for golf and good times. Ed really knew how to live and made every day count. His family was always the most important thing in his life and he was the most generous and loving Dad and husband anyone could ask for. He was our undisputed hero and the foundation of our family. We will miss him every day but thank him for the wonderful legacy and memories he has left us all. Ed leaves behind his wife Sandra, our Mom Shirley, brother Holger (Ingrid), daughter Susan (Bruce), sons Mark (Chera) and Eric (Angie), Kent and grandchildren Ciara, Daniel, Nathan, Kaia, Max and Emma. Please join us for a celebration of Ed’s wonderful life at his building on 2nd St. and Lonsdale (basement) 150 Lonsdale Ave., North Van on Friday November 2nd at 6:00 pm.

STRUBIN, Hank

With much sadness our family would like to share the loss of Henry (Hank) Strubin. Born in Lucerne May 13, 1919 Dad was extremely proud of his Swiss heritage. He came to Vancouver as a child and bought his first home in West Van in 1940 when it was still the land of trees and trails. Mom and Dad loved nature and moved to a house on Caulfeild Cove in 1950. Many happy weddings, parties and club functions took place at Strubin Haus creating wonderful memories for so many. As a young man Hank founded Western Reinforcing Steel Services Ltd. and expanded it across Canada. He started the first group of West Van Sea Scouts out of his garage in Caulfeild resulting in many lifelong friends. He was instrumental in bringing the Canadian Progress Club to the west coast in 1962 and was a founding and executive member of the Swiss Canadian Rifle Club in 1964. After moving to Bowen in 1992 Hank started and worked hard on the recycling programme on Bowen Island and in 2005 he arranged for the BC Regiment Irish Pipes & Drums to participate in the annual Bowfest festivities. Dad was kind and generous to all he met and was always ready to give a helping hand to those in need. His mind was filled with information on every subject and he particularly loved sharing stories from back in the day with friends and family. He also loved sharing with pride the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren. After losing his wife Kay in 2004 and son Mick in 2012 Hank is survived by his daughters Shari (Ron) Whittaker, Trudi (Keith) Pelletier, Rennie (Keith) Furlotte, grandchildren Tanya (Peter) Seanna (Greg) Christoph (Cambrea) James (Heather) Verena and Kaitlin. Great grandsons Jacob and Evan. Daughter-in-law Sue and Mick’s partner Debbie. Dad, Grandpa, Papa loved giving surprises and brought a lot of joy to the Strubin family. He will be missed by all. In lieu of flowers a kind thought and some help to a friend in need would be appreciated by Dad. Celebration of Life at Bowen Court, Nov 8th, 3:30pm on Bowen Island.

Happy Birthday May the Sunshine of Comfort Dispel the Clouds of Despair

WILLESEN, Victor Carl Victor Willesen passed away peacefully at the Kiwanis Care Centre on October 23, 2012. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Lis; children, Mike (Sharon), Susan (Derek); grandchildren, Wesley, Nolan, Jessica, Tiana and Kyle; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends. Victor was born June 27, 1925 in Vilsund, Denmark where he grew up with his eleven brothers and sisters. He served in the Danish Navy and immigrated to Canada with his wife in 1955. He worked as a builder on the North Shore with his brother Herman, building houses and gas stations. Victor had a long, successful career at Eaton’s Park Royal in the furniture department for 25 years. He had an eye for design and loved to decorate houses. He was most proud of his children and grandchildren who were the centre of his life. He was the best grandpa ever. A Celebration of Victor’s life will be held at Hollyburn Funeral Home, 1807 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, B.C. on Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 11:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to B.C. Children’s Hospital in Victor’s memory.

Love Don, Kris, Karen, Samantha, Matthew, Malu, Danielle & Elisa

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Cancer June 21-July 22: Your home life grows more affectionate for three weeks. Romance, love of children, beauty, art, crafts, pleasure, adventure, vacations, speculation, sports and winning fill the month ahead. Events will proceed slowly but grow deeply in this zone now to late 2015. Love’s very likely! Sunday puts pressure on you, from authorities, bosses or parents. Your hopes climb Monday/ Tuesday – popularity, social joys, light romance and entertainment bring a celebration atmosphere. Avoid illusion (and alcohol) around work, health. Retreat, contemplate Wednesday to Friday. You shine Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent rests on home, security, hibernation (deep naps) children, garden, nutrition, retirement plans and life’s basics, now to late November. This area is protected, beneficial, yet slow and a bit restrictive, for several years ahead. You might start working at home, or find your home causes work. (Both OK.) A gentle, affectionate mood buoys Sunday. But work, ambition, and dealing with higherups fill Monday/Tuesday. Be cautious here, especially of your own motives. Celebration, happy friends, light romance and optimism greet you Wednesday to Friday. New (quirky) love possible! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The weeks ahead bring communications, errands, short trips and casual but “heavy” friends – and details, reports, paperwork.This whole area will be beneficial but slow until late 2015. A casual friend might become a lover, even a spouse. Sunday features depths, mysteries, sexual urges and financial desires: but nothing significant happens, so make it fun. (E.g., see a seductive film.) A wise, gentle mood steals over you Monday/Tuesday – but avoid illusion and “tempting goals.” Your ambitions, career and relations with higher-ups fill mid-late week. Drive carefully Saturday.

Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent remains on lifestyle changes, health diagnoses, research, investments, debt, resources owned in tandem with others, sexual desires, agent work, therapy, psychology, occultism, dreams and subconscious urges. You stand at the fulcrum of your life this week and the next two – from here, you can make changes that will turn your whole life. You attract attention Sunday, but with little result. Possessions, spending, earning, and sensual bonds draw you Monday/Tuesday. Caution best. Errands, trips, communications fill midweek. Family, Saturday. Be cautious all week. Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis remains on relationships, negotiations, agreements, dealings with the public, relocation, potential fame and opportunities in general. This zone is mildly lucky (more correctly, mildly protective toward you) for many months to come. Now to 2014, the worst thing you can do is withdraw or become independent and self-centric (i.e., reject relationships). Remember this Monday/ Tuesday, when your energy surges, but “working in tandem” yields more rewards than independence. Rest, Sunday. Chase money, Wednesday onward: it’s the birth of profit! Practice work safety. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead emphasize work, health and dependents. Unchanging tasks bore you; you thrive on variety. However, there might be little workplace variety now to late 2015, so plod onward. (Most of 2013, 14 and 15 will not focus on work – just Novembers.) In general, this area is benevolent, protected to 2015 – and even beyond. You might find your work has a direct connection to investment, debt, or another’s resources; that research aids your progress; and that your actual work changes in a deep and meaningful way. You’re weary Monday/ Tuesday; you bounce back Wednesday-Friday.

Oct. 28 - Nov. 3, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: You’ve been energetic and magnetic the past few weeks, and travel has brought you to a potential mate (if you’re single: potential business partner if you’re attached). But deep talks and affection have been missing. Now through midNovember you are likely to draw serious sensual attention and happy talks. Otherwise the month ahead emphasizes earnings and purchases – things will be slow but supportive here, to late 2015. You might buy property. Sunday’s exciting but yields little. Monday/ Tuesday: sex, finances. Wednesday to Friday brings love, compassion, travel, higher learning. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are high and strong – take advantage. Start projects, seek favours, propose methods, systems, see and be seen. You are feeling (perhaps very slightly) more sober, serious and cautious – this will last for three years. So start projects carefully, with planning and foresight. You’ll get done what needs doing. Despite your heightened charisma, love partnerships might elude you. This is a “warning” not to marry (nor form a business partnership) before February 2014 (hints Monday/Tuesday). Finances, sexual urges arise Wednesday-Friday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan for the next few weeks. Seek spiritual elevation, show charity (or apply for it if in need) and deal with government and large corporations. Despite weariness, you are facing a strong social, hopeful and communicative trend, and you’re still feeling romantic and feisty. Don’t wear yourself out. Sunday’s for pleasure. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday, but don’t expand your “chore role.” Relationships come front and centre Wednesday to Friday: this could bring a new partnership prospect, as well as some challenges. “Unquiet depths,” Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Social joys, popularity, optimism, light romance, entertainment and group events fill the weeks ahead. Rest Sunday. Deep romance, creativity, self-expression, adventure, beauty and pleasure (and gambler’s risks) attract you Monday/ Tuesday, but be careful, wary of your own motives. Tackle chores Wednesday to Friday – and practice safety Thursday. Saturday brings relationships, but mostly in the form of challenge, snarkiness and hidden enmity. Be diplomatic, distant. Higher-ups favour you now to late November – success looms IF you avoid secrets, gossip and collusion. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead accent career, status and prestige relations. The pressure is on, higher-ups are watching, perhaps testing you – but you’ll pass. This entire ambition zone will evolve very slowly over the next three years, but it’s also buoyant, protects you, for the year and a half ahead. If seeking employment, approach government, large corporations and institutions. You legal, higher learning, cultural and far travel interests meet good luck now to late November. You’ve been socializing more than usual in October: this intensifies for three weeks, and could spark a love affair. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Now to late November, a gentle, compassionate mood slows through you. (Yes, slows – that’s a slow flow.) Higher learning, publishing, far travel, legal affairs, weddings and other cultural rituals prove satisfying, productive. These matters will move slowly for several years, but they will also be protected, beneficial. In them, you might find a doorway to your future (e.g., enter college) or a link to a great group. Your finances, investments grow nicely – or present a sweet opportunity – to late November. Bosses and parents, already testy, now get vocal – grin and bear it! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
