Schools could alter calendars

New legislation makes holiday changes possible; school districts to consult

James Weldon

jweldon@nsnews.com

IN the wake of the province’s decision to surrender control of the school calendar, the North and West Vancouver school districts are rushing to draw up a list of options that could have significant implications for teachers and families across the community. The B.C. Ministry of Education announced the regulatory change Nov. 9, saying it was handing control of the calendar to school districts and giving them until the spring to come up with a plan for the 2013-2014 school year. The ministry will still set the minimum number of instructional hours, but how those hours are distributed throughout the year — and how vacations will fit into that schedule — will be determined at the district level. The move followed the passage of Bill 36 earlier in 2012, which eliminated the standard school year. The change leaves North and West Vancouver with just a few months to decide what to do with their new-found freedom. “In a sense, the strength of the standard school calendar was that it See Radical page 5

NVSD blames funding cuts in wake of judgment Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

THE North Vancouver school district has blamed provincial funding cuts for a decision to close a specialized literacy program for learning disabled students in the 1990s. But the district continues to insist it did what it could to help Jeff Moore, a North Vancouver student whose family won a landmark Supreme Court of Canada ruling last week. In a decision Nov. 9, Canada’s highest court agreed with Jeff’s father, Rick Moore, that by cutting services to his dyslexic son and failing to provide alternatives, the school district discriminated against Jeff by making it impossible for him to receive the education guaranteed to all children in British Columbia.

WEST VANCOUVER PLANS NEW ARTS CENTRE

Rosalind Duane rduane@nsnews.com

It’s arts’ turn

AFTER years of hovering in the hearts and minds of the arts community, the idea of a West Vancouver Arts Centre is finally moving forward.

In May, District of West Vancouver council voted unanimously to support in principle the designation of the municipally owned parking lot in the 1600-block of Bellevue Avenue (behind the Safeway site) for a proposed new visual arts centre. An early concept design suggests a three-storey, 28,000-square-foot building with space for an art museum, an art gallery and arts education. “That was a giant milestone for us,” says Merla Beckerman of the council’s vote. “We’re riding a momentum right now because everybody likes the idea of replacing a parking lot with a community amenity.” Beckerman was chairwoman of the Arts Facilities Advisory Committee that worked for 18 months with community arts groups and staff to determine space needs and site options. The 1600 Bellevue location was chosen after a site at the foot of 14th Street was rejected when it met with a negative reaction from the public. The new centre would essentially bring together the programs of the West Vancouver Museum and the Ferry Building Gallery under one roof. But Beckerman notes it won’t replace all arts programs in West Vancouver, which also include the Silk Purse Gallery and the Music Box art instruction programs. “Certainly it will be the mother ship. It will be the centrepoint because of the wonderful location that we’ve secured and because it does most of the programming. But there will still be other facilities that will be in use because you do need education space, you do need some of what we call ‘messy space’ for kids and lifelong learners to do their drawings and printmaking and everything else that’s involved with art production,” she says. Darrin Morrison, curator of the West Vancouver Museum, is excited about the proposed centre. “It would definitely allow us to grow our programming and meet current programming needs because our current facility is really beyond capacity,” he says. The museum is currently located in the Gertrude Lawson House, a heritage house on 17th Street. In 2006, the museum established a growing art collection and they don’t have adequate storage for it in the current facility, says Morrison. “So a new facility would allow us to grow the collection as well as manage it.” Ruth Payne, visual arts co-ordinator at the Ferry Building Gallery, says the new space is much needed.

“Things right now are what I would call bursting at the seams as far as exhibition and program venues that we have,” she says. The Ferry Building Gallery is located in the Ferry Building on 14th Street, which is a municipally designated heritage property built in 1913. “Heritage buildings are lovely but they’re not purpose-built for art exhibition, collection, (and) program and public interaction meeting space,” says Payne. “This community deserves this at this time.” Although their programs would move to the new centre, both the Ferry Building and Gertrude Lawson House would remain in use as satellite art spaces, or for some other community purpose. Beckerman, who was a professional art adviser for more than 20 years, is a member of the B.C. Arts Council, and is the former chairwoman of the Vancouver Art Gallery Board and vicechairperson of the National Gallery of Canada. She is now cochairing the art centre project’s development committee along with former West Vancouver councillor Michael Evison, who served as council liaison on the advisory committee. “We’re really at the beginning of the process,” says Evison, adding the project got to a certain point last year before the initiatives started to wither on the vine. “It was really at the beginning of this year that we put some life back into it and I think we’ve come a long way,” he notes. “This is a citizen, community-driven project which has full support of council.” For the past four months, Beckerman and Evison have interviewed various residents and community leaders as part of a feasibility study. Evison calls the process so far “semi-public,” but notes there will be a full public process. Beckerman says the response from the feasibility study was overwhelmingly positive, and she is optimistic the committee will be able to move forward with a business plan and determine construction and operational costs. She and Evison are scheduled to present their survey results to council Monday evening in-camera. At that time, Brent Leigh, the municipality’s deputy chief administrative officer, is expected to make recommendations for the project’s next steps, including appointments to the development board. Leigh is the district’s lead on the project, and was a nonvoting participant of the advisory committee. If the project’s business plan, funding and construction plan were in place within a year, Leigh says it is possible they could break ground on the centre in a couple of years. The art centre is not a done deal, however. The final decision to go ahead with the project will depend on funding and the business

plan. The centre would be a district asset, and the plan is for the estimated $25-million construction cost to be covered largely by donations and some grants. The actual building costs will be determined in conjunction with design studies. The district would be looking at a plan that covered the operating expenses through private funding models. Ultimately, district assets are supported by the district, but the intention is that there would be minimal district support for ongoing operation of the facility, says Leigh. He added that the district is keen to develop an endowment fund and bring long-term financial sustainability to the project. The arts centre is part of a campaign toward revitalization of Ambleside that has been four or five years in the making, says Leigh. “You can see it could be a very effective hub for the vibrancy of the Ambleside revitalization efforts,” Leigh says of the centre. Although the idea of a consolidated art centre reaches back as far as 1960, with artist Jack Shadbolt said to be an early supporter of the idea, the current proposal is the furthest the project has come, says Beckerman. Information from the district notes that planning for the visual arts facility has its roots in two studies: the Aldrich Pears Study in June 2006 and West Vancouver Museum: A Vision for Ambleside in 2009 by Urban Arts Architecture. Both studies were received by council and focused on support for enhanced cultural arts spaces. One looked for distributed facilities along Argyle and the other focused on a more substantial building to replace the museum. Both Beckerman and Evison point to the initiative of the current council and past councils to develop Ambleside as a significant factor in the centre’s continued momentum. In 2010, council supported permissive zoning that designated the entire waterfront from the 1300-block to 1800-block of Argyle Avenue as a “cultural precinct.” The idea of a cultural precinct is part of a broader initiative to revitalize Ambleside through redevelopment of the 1300-block of Marine Drive; relocation of the police station to a new public safety building; redevelopment of municipally owned land on Fulton Avenue for housing stock; and a master plan to consolidate arts facilities in Ambleside. “Everything sort of moved in the right direction at the right time,” says Beckerman. Glenn Madsen, the district’s cultural program co-ordinator who oversees programs at the Music Box, says the idea of a cultural precinct on the waterfront meshed with the parks is an attractive and driving force for the centre. Although the new visual arts centre would not be on park land or on waterfront land, it would See WV page 9

provided guidance and clear expectation from the community’s perspective,” said North Vancouver assistant superintendent Mark Jefferson. “Now, with no calendar, you’re starting at square 1, and you’ll have to do a heavy amount of consultation with your partners to find out what their perspectives are.” Parents, who will be among those consulted, shouldn’t be expecting any seismic shift, however. “We don’t think there’ll be dramatic changes such as year-round schooling or anything like that,” said Jefferson. “I think you’ll have a two-week Christmas break, a two-week Spring Break for most districts, standard summer breaks.” The West Vancouver school district, which has been in communication with its neighbour on the issue, declined to comment, but the West Vancouver’s Teachers Association, which is involved in the discussions, suggested its district will take a similarly cautious approach. “We don’t have anything radical on the agenda,” said WVTA president Robert Millard. “We’re just looking at the possibilities.” One term that arose in both conversations with the North Shore News was “balanced calendar,” a model that favours a shorter summer vacation and longer winter and spring breaks in an effort to minimize the “learning loss” students experience in the long hazy

days of July and August. “Something that 10 years ago would have been pooh-poohed, people are thinking seriously about,” said West Vancouver’s Millard. “I’ve worked under a balanced calendar when I taught in Japan for three years. . . . There are definitely advantages to it.” “When you look at the educational research, a shorter summer definitely benefits students,” said Jefferson. “So if you use that as a starting point, having a more balanced calendar is definitely more advantageous for (them).” Asked if North Vancouver was considering that model, Jefferson said the school district was looking at “all the options,” but repeated that it wasn’t anticipating any drastic changes. Both men emphasized that discussions were in a very early stage. Millard noted that numerous factors have to be considered: the co-ordination of sports events with other districts, for instance, the timing of rec-centre-based summer programs, and issues relating to daycare for both parents and teachers. “There are so many things that people don’t think about when you’re setting a calendar, and that the people who are affected by it are acutely aware of,” he said. “That’s why we have surveys; you test the waters.” Both North and West Vancouver plan to conduct extensive consultation in the coming months, and aim to have proposals in front of their boards by March, according to Jefferson and Millard.

“Adequate special education . . . is not a dispensable luxury,” the court stated. The ruling marked the end of 15-year legal battle that began when, as a young child, Jeff struggled for several years while attending North Vancouver’s Braemar elementary. The school district had recently closed a program that offered intensive remediation to students with learning disabilities. In a public statement, this week the board of education noted the special program was closed during a period of “severe financial crisis” for the North Vancouver school system, when changes to the funding formula resulted in spending cuts of $17.5 million. The board noted during the time he went to Braemar, Jeff Moore received significant individual help. The Supreme Court, however, found it wasn’t enough. It also noted the board continued to operate some other discretionary programs, like the Outdoor School, while cutting special education.

But in an emailed statement, board chairwoman Franci Stratton said by the time lease payments and other site closure costs were considered, shutting down the Outdoor School would not have saved the district money. This year, the school district has budgeted $21 million for special needs within its $139-million operating budget. The province provides about $8.6 million towards the special-needs budget. There are 672 students in North Vancouver public schools identified as having severe learning disabilities — about 4.4 per cent of the student population, said Stratton. There are an equal number identified as having less severe learning disabilities. The school district operates two literacy centres at the elementary level for students diagnosed with learning disabilities. Support workers with specialized training also provide help in the schools. But budget cuts have continued to affect special education services. Three years ago, when the province cut the school district’s $3million facilities grant, the district said it would not be able to hire replacements for special education assistants when they were away.

Losing balance B

Y relinquishing control over British Columbia’s school year, the province has freed school districts to tweak their calendars to their hearts’ content, but the move may have come at the cost of larger-scale, systemic improvement. In speaking to the North Shore News about the regulatory change this week, representatives for stakeholders in both North and West Vancouver talked in glowing terms about the potential advantages of a balanced school calendar, a model adopted in some other jurisdictions whereby summer break is shortened in favour of longer spring and winter breaks. The idea arises from research suggesting that the long summer gap hurts students’ retention, making it hard for them to catch up in the fall. It’s unlikely, though, that under the

province’s new laissez-faire regulatory framework, either district will look at the plan seriously, because to go it alone — or even as a pair — would be impractical. A change to a shorter summer would require a cultural shift that stretches beyond the jurisdiction of any school district. The change would affect everything from provincial sports to rec programs to daycare to transit planning; a patchwork of calendars would be a recipe for problems. Realistically, any shift on that scale would have to be co-ordinated at the provincial level. But now, with Victoria out of the equation, it’s unlikely it will ever happen. The balanced calendar may or may not be the best option for our school system, but as a result of the province’s move, it’s an option that’s no longer on the table.

We chose not to live near Metrotown Dear Editor: My wife and I chose to live, and raise our family, in Lynn Valley because of the relative easy access to amenities and, more importantly, to live within the unique natural surroundings offered by the North Shore mountains. We feel somewhat at arm’s length from the hectic lifestyles often associated with higherdensity-living in many surrounding areas. Currently, our Lynn Valley neighbourhood is characterized as quiet, with good neighbours and spectacular views of the local mountains, with easy access to green spaces, hiking and biking trails to work and other amenities. I believe most people who live in Lynn Valley, or other areas of the North Shore, do so for similar reasons. I was shocked when I viewed the proposed Lynn Valley Community Plan this past summer. I am even

more shocked as I have recently learned of other proposals or projects already underway on the North Shore. How could our elected representatives and community planners be so naive and easily persuaded by development companies? We need to keep focused on our community goals and objectives. Community objectives should include maintaining, improving and revitalizing services to meet changing and growing community needs. We need affordable housing for new and young families, as well as older residents. We need amenable services for everyone living in the community. And we need sustainable sources of funding. There must be other options besides going forward with mega development projects, and without the support from the Lynn Valley community.

Lynn Valley residents do not want three apartment towers and higher densities blocking mountain views and placing even more demands on already oversubscribed community streets and services. I can’t imagine why elected officials and community planners support large developments such as those proposed for Lynn Valley and other areas on the North Shore, when most North Shore residents oppose it. Large development companies have teams of experts whose sole job is to persuade elected representatives and community planners into supporting their projects. If we wanted to live near Metrotown we would have bought a house to raise our family near Metrotown. Please wake up! Keith Forrest North Vancouver

LVCA meeting excludes community

Dear Editor: An announcement has gone out to the members of the Lynn Valley Community Association to take part in an information meeting where BOSA explains their plans regarding the Lynn Valley Centre development. The meeting is scheduled on Nov. 21 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Molly Nye House. The meeting is only for members that have joined before Nov. 1. I am highly disappointed that LVCA is continuing on the path of excluding everyone in what is happening in Lynn Valley. After all, it is a “community association.” So would it not be reasonable to have an open discussion that includes everyone?

CONTACT US

It leaves everybody wondering what is really discussed at these meetings and why the secrecy. Why does LVCA not listen to the people that they claim they represent? Emails that were sent to the LVCA in regard to this meeting remain unanswered. The residents of Lynn Valley are already upset about the highrise proposals and to hold private meetings with the developer (BOSA) is not going to resolve the tension in the community. What is LVCA really trying to accomplish? To alienate everybody? Alex Schwarz North Vancouver

Do you have The Count of Monte Crisco? “DO you have a copy of Tequila Mockingbird?”

“Did Charles Dickens ever write anything fun?” “This Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has to be the most historically accurate fiction book I’ve read.” Those are just a few of the dimwitted remarks featured in the amusing hardback Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores (Overlook Press), by English bookseller Jen Campbell. When you see the kinds of ignorance that people like her encounter daily, it makes you admire the strength of character that must be required of career booksellers. Of course, independent stores staffed by educated types like Campbell, who has a master’s in English Literature and is a poet and short story writer, are now rare. Modern chain bookstores are fun to visit, with their on-site cafés and seasonal decor items, but the best outlets for true bookworms remain those with worn, creaky hardwood floors and employees who’ve just finished reading whatever it is you’re after. At the very least, they’ve heard of it. Here in Vancouver, Duthie

unruly in their own way as teenaged dirt bike enthusiasts. Campbell polled other booksellers to see whether they’d had similar experiences to her own, and the result is a book of almost 200 pages that was a London Times bestseller. Evidently, working in a bookstore isn’t a peaceful, stress-free way to make a living. That’s because customers routinely ask booksellers questions like “Where is the true fiction section?” They request that the clerk photocopy a recipe from a Jamie Oliver cookbook so they don’t have to buy the whole thing. They try to return a novel they’ve dropped in the bath because it’s now bloated and unreadable. They ask if the bookstore sells milk, screwdrivers, swim goggles, gum, cigarettes, cameras and even sea monkey food. And they want help finding titles like “Campbell’s Soup for the Soul,” “The Count of Monte Crisco,” “Canary Row,” and “Fiddler on a Hot Tin Roof.” You don’t have to be bookish to laugh at the sheer idiocy of queries like “Who is the author of the Shakespeare plays?”

One vendor was approached by a customer who said she’d just read The Diary of Anne Frank, adding, “I just wanted to ask: did Anne Frank ever write a sequel?” A student fruitlessly searched a university bookstore for the text for his “Northern Anthropology” class before a clerk figured out that the fellow actually needed The Norton Anthology of Literature. Meanwhile, a man entered a Maine bookstore and declared, “I don’t know why she wants it, but my wife asked for a copy of The Dinosaur Cookbook.” The bookseller wondered if he meant The Dinah Shore Cookbook. “That must be it,” said the gent. “I

wondered what she was up to.” Clerks are apparently presented with countless such mysteries. “I read a book in the ’60s,” a customer once confided. “I don’t remember the author, or the title. But it was green, and it made me laugh. Do you know which one I mean?” When a man asked a Pennsylvania bookseller whether he sold dictionaries, the clerk asked what kind of dictionary he required. “One with all the words,” the customer said. These days, of course, real books are under threat from ebooks. It seems that customers cruise the aisles, jotting down

TOGETHER for the Holidays

WV wins budget award Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

THE District of West Vancouver’s commitment to fiscal responsibility has been recognized with an award for its 2012 budget. A panel of independent reviewers from the Government Finance Officers Association presented the district with the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award last week. The award is based on the budget’s success

as a policy document and a financial plan. “This award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting,” wrote GFOA officials in a letter to the district. “The award validates our staff’s efforts to ensure West Vancouver residents receive important financial information in the most professional and effective way,” said Mayor Michael Smith in a press release. The district was also named co-winner of the 2012 “Most Fiscally Responsible” municipality in Metro Vancouver by the Commercial Real Estate Development Association.

Weird people still like paper ones

From page 7

“I’m looking for a book for my son,” a baffled customer tells a clerk. “He’s one of those weird people who still likes the paper ones.” It could be worse, I guess. According to Weird Things, a Toronto bookseller overheard a five-year-old visitor exclaim to her mum that she could stay in that bookstore all day. “I don’t know why you read; it’ll never get you anywhere,” her parent replied. Thank God career booksellers are an intrepid, relentlessly helpful bunch.

As a university student, my husband Stanley once read three books in a row by a famous Beat author, for whom there was no scene too disgusting or depraved to be committed to print. Afterward, Stanley went into a funky bookstore and said to the bearded intellectual manning the front desk, “I just finished reading The Red Night Trilogy by William S. Burroughs. What should I read next?” The bookseller gave him a deadpan stare. “The Bible,” he replied. kate@katezimmerman.ca

Harry Jerome Public Consultation The City of North Vancouver is seeking public input into redevelopment options for the future Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre and adjacent public lands. Public input opportunities are underway. ONLINE PUBLIC OPINION SURVEY Available until November 30 at www.cnv.org

be a geographic connecting point between the waterfront and the Ambleside business district. “It would really act like a bridge,” he says. “As much as it’s an art centre, it’s also a communitybased gathering place.” Madsen calls plans for the new centre a natural evolution. “There’s been a real eye on progressive development and change in this area over the past few years so it’s part of that initiative and this is the arts piece. There’s an appetite to develop and change things for the better.” He adds that the various arts programs will retain their individual identities. “It’s not a question of homogenizing anything or putting it all in one place, it’s part of

a diverse framework of cultural assets available to the community,” he says. Evison says the new visual arts centre will fill a big gap in the community. “Our capacity as a community to have more and greater and perhaps even better exhibits just doesn’t exist. We don’t have the capacity to exhibit some of the art that we have in the community. We don’t have the capacity to accept art from donors in the community, and there’s an awful lot. The performing arts are now well served with the Kay Meek and the visual arts are not.” Beckerman agrees: “We have a beautiful community centre, we have a beautiful seniors centre, we have fabulous recreation facilities, and it was just time that the arts had their turn.”

City population exceeding growth targets Toni Bolton Contributing writer

THE City of North Vancouver is currently revising its official community plan in a process it calls “City Shaping.”

The OCP is a blueprint for the city’s future and is intended to provide a degree of certainty; all bylaws and works undertaken by the city must be consistent with the plan once adopted. Our most recent version was adopted in 2002. The city adopted the Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy in 2011. The strategy assigns a one per cent per year growth rate to the city as its share of the region’s growth over the coming years. The Local Government Act requires that the city’s OCP be generally consistent with the regional growth strategy which projects population, dwelling units, employment and a 10-year housing demand estimate. North Vancouver City Voices citizens group has concluded after extensive research into public hearing transcripts, council meeting minutes and committee meeting minutes that the city has far exceeded targets assigned by the regional growth strategy — and even by its own OCP. On Nov. 6, we met with city staff members to show them our documentation. We asked them to confirm that our conclusions about growth in the city — that we are far exceeding the targets assigned — are reasonable and accurate. They indicated they would verify our numbers. We have tried to contact them for a response over the past two days with no success and have now reluctantly come to the conclusion that the city does not want people to realize the following facts. From the regional growth strategy: ■ The 10-year housing demand estimate is for 2,400 units; ownership demand is 1,600, rental demand is 800. The 800 rental units is broken down to 600 affordable-housing units and 200 market-rental units. ■ Target population for 2021 is 56,000 and for 2031 is 62,000. ■ Dwelling unit target for 2021 is 25,600 and for 2031 is 28,000. The city’s current population is 51,083 according to B.C. Statistic’s 2012 population estimates and the city’s website puts its current dwelling units at 22,789. However, there are 4,145 dwelling units currently approved. This means that, using the city statistics of 2.2 people per unit, an additional 9,119 people are already expected. Bottom line? The 2021 target population is surpassed by 4,202, and we are already at 97.1% of the 2031 target population. Our figures do include the population from the Harbourside estimates although the rezoning is not yet scheduled. However, our figures do not include new duplexes, coach houses, secondary suites (23 currently listed on the development application site). Nor do our figures include the estimated See Livable page 11

Considering laser vision correction? London Eye Centre specializes in the most advanced, all-laser techniques. Other clinics may offer the older conventional LASIK, which is a procedure that uses a blade to cut the eye. There is no need to do that anymore. London Eye Centre was the first clinic in BC dedicated to laser vision correction. Over the past 27 years, our surgical team has been recognized as one of the most experienced in the world.

Livable growth not unlimited growth

Get Ready For Winter Sale November 22, 9:00am - 9:00pm

From page 10

350,000 square feet of development planned for the Harry Jerome redevelopment. Conservatively this will be another 500 units at 700 square feet per unit. In 2002, the city proposed a population cap of 55,500 by 2021. Then councillor John Braithwaite said that when the limit is reached council would know what to do next. Our mayor, then a councillor, said that he would look at sustainability and affordability. Well, the time has come to look at it — we have passed that mark. While we have respect for the professionalism and ethics of the city planning staff, we have grown very concerned about the role city staff members have been assigned in handling development applications. Since staff is advising council, we think their primary responsibility should be as defenders of the OCP. We have been dismayed to see planning staff assigned to work with developers after we have heard from developers that city staff members have encouraged them to ask for more height on proposed buildings. There is a public hearing on Monday for the Onni redevelopment on the Safeway site. It may interest residents of the city to know that over the past couple of years there have been 14 OCP amendments — the purpose of which has mostly been to increase density. We believe Onni’s request to ignore existing OCP guidelines will also be approved. We are emphatically not anti-growth. However we believe the pace of development is out of control in our city. We want to continue to enjoy the things that brought us to North Vancouver — its beautiful scenery, spectacular vistas and natural splendour. We do not want to live in the shadows of oversized condos or have our limited hours of sunlight blocked by massive towers. We want growth that respects the character and values of our neighbourhoods and growth that puts the interests of citizens first. We want growth that respects the official community plan, not growth driven by developers and speculators. We want livable growth that includes the development of parks, recreation facilities, schools, medical facilities, transportation and traffic capacity at the same time as development occurs, not as a long-delayed afterthought, paid for through higher taxes. The city’s population growth is no longer within the stated limits. What happens when we are no longer consistent with any plan?

WHEN North Vancouver resident Lori Hall laces up her skates and takes to the ice at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre in Vancouver Nov. 22, she’ll be doing so in support of all the children and families affected by rare diseases in B.C.

A first time participant in Lace Up For Kids, Hall will be among the individuals and teams preparing to skate a collective 25,000 laps of the rink. The event is student-driven, presented by representatives of UBC REC and in addition to skating, participants commit to raising funds in support of rare disease research. The event offers an array of family friendly off-ice

activities as well. Hall knows firsthand the challenges a rare disease can have on a family as her daughter Annika, 2, has an isodicentric chromosome 15 (IDIC15). She’s grateful for the support she’s received from the Rare Disease Foundation and is a member. “(They’ve helped) us find a community of people that, although living with varied and diverse rare diseases, understand this journey like no one else could,” she says. According to the foundation, approximately 3 million Canadians have a rare disease. “The prevalence of rare disease in our community is alarming. . . .,” says Hall. “Rare disease will touch you in your lifetime. We can use statistics to paralyze us or motivate us to action. I choose to be motivated. The Rare Disease Foundation microgrant program has already proven that we can change the established medical paradigm and find real world solutions to problems facing families living with a rare disease. You can make a difference and you can start by supporting Lace Up For Kids.” Isabel Jordan, chairwoman of the Rare Disease Foundation, likewise encourages community members to support Lace Up For Kids. “Our microgrant research program is doing something no See Parent page 18

Teen strength training beneficial if done with care WE all know how important it is to stay active and be fit, even at a young age.

There are plenty of opportunities for teenagers to get out there and exercise — joining sports or dance teams, walking to school, or participating in seasonal sports like snowboarding or beach volleyball. But what happens when an adolescent wants to take their fitness to the next level and begin strength training? The thought of their teenage child lifting weights sometimes worries parents, but it doesn’t have to. Strength training is actually a common component of physical fitness programs for adolescents and is common practice in sports in which size and strength are desirable. Strength training programs can improve sport performance and prevent injuries. But, it is important to make sure they, and anyone new to strength See Supervision page 18

AS a child (shown here), former West Vancouver resident Trevor Bestwick had difficulty reading due to dyslexia. Following his enrollment at Eaton Arrowsmith school, he finally got the help he needed.

School offers reading help Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

TRACING the narrow path between two thin lines while wearing an eyepatch may seem like an odd antidote to dyslexia, but for Trevor Bestwick, it worked like a charm.

Bestwick is currently studying civil engi-

neering at the University of Calgary, but just a decade earlier the odds seemed long against the former West Vancouver resident going to college. “When I was in Grade 4 and I left public school my reading level was probably at the Grade 1 level,” he recalls.

specialized program. The new school stressed memorizing specific rules to compensate for dyslexia, a program that left Bestwick struggling. “For something like bad spelling, I would learn a bunch of techniques, how to remember how to spell certain words, or just some words that didn’t follow the fundamental rules of the English language,” Bestwick says. “A great example I can give you is the word ‘laugh.’ When I was really young the way I learned to memorize it was, ‘Look At Us Giggle Happily.’” The program didn’t seem to change anything except Bestwick’s personality. “Because of my poor school skills I was heading in the direction of the class clown because I loved getting a laugh out of people and it was a great way to hide my weaknesses,” he says. Having taken a Lucas Centre course with Howard Eaton, who currently serves as director of Eaton Arrowsmith school, Bestwick and his mother opted to make a change. Located near University Hill in Vancouver, Eaton Arrowsmith specializes in helping students with learning disabilities and social difficulties. The school offers a slate of programs designed to improve a student’s cognitive functions until they can return to a public or private school. “It was clear at the time I still had some struggles. Nothing I’d done at that program could make my writing speed faster or increase my productivity on writing an essay or getting better at spelling,” Bestwick says. “We took a leap of faith with Howard Eaton.” Bestwick says he was heartbroken to

Tracing patterns while wearing an eye-

patch turned out to be a useful exercise. “When you’re doing this exercise they don’t want you using one side of your brain because the part of your brain that has trouble with the exercise needs to be isolated,” Bestwick explains. The school’s drills served the same general functions as rehabilitative exercises, according to Bestwick. “These exercises might have nothing to do with social studies or English class, but they’re engaging the brain in a way that makes it stronger and learn faster, and no longer do you have to compensate,” he says. Learning to quickly read six-handed clocks also benefited Bestwick. “Those exercises help you with anything from having to co-ordinate a bunch of tasks to staying organized, it helps you with math.” Understanding the interdependence of each hand on the clock can help in comprehending the ripple effect of social relationships, according to Bestwick. It wasn’t long before the program seemed to be working, and in Grade 7 Bestwick was able to dive into the Harry Potter books. “I’m not reading an entire page and forgetting what I’d read because I was focusing so hard on what words were on the page and not the actual subject,” he says. “Life gets a little more interesting.” Rather than struggling to graduate high school, Bestwick earned a scholarship for academic excellence. “I want to do anything I can for Eaton Arrowsmith because I think it’s a great school,” he says. “They’re just really open and understanding and want kids to do the best they can in life.”

other program is doing,” she says. “It is allowing clinicianresearchers access to funds that allow them to perform patientcare focused research that they couldn’t otherwise do.” In the past three-and-a-half years, the foundation has granted more than $400,000 that researchers have used to develop therapies for four different conditions. Their microgrants have also led to practice changes, including developing a way to screen for 81 treatable causes of intellectual disability, says Jordan. The foundation has also been making a difference in connecting families living with a rare disease diagnosis. The foundation’s Parent 2 Parent Resource Network group meets in Vancouver and Ottawa and soon will be meeting in Toronto, Winnipeg and Squamish. “We’ve found that regardless of individual diagnosis, all of us are coping with the same feelings of uncertainty and fear,” says Jordan. “We are all navigating the same health care, school and social services systems. We all have so much to give to and learn from one another. At our meetings we have found our home — a group of people who truly understand the journey we are on.” Funds raised from the event will go to the Translational Research Fund at B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation. This fund is used directly by the Rare Disease Foundation for their Microgrant Research program. The foundation has issued a call for proposals across Canada for patient-care focused rare disease research. Proposals will be vetted and grants will be awarded less than a month after the event.

When adolescents start a strength-training program they should begin with lowresistance exercises until proper technique is learned. When 10 to 12 repetitions can be performed with good technique it is reasonable to add weight in small increments. However, it is very important to make sure not too much weight is added at once, or there is a risk of injury. Exercises should include all of the muscle groups and be performed through the full

Before any adolescent begins a strength-training program, it is a good idea for them to see a physician for a medical evaluation to identify any possible risk factors for injury. That being said, injuries related to skeletally immature individuals are uncommon and believed to be largely preventable by avoiding improper lifting techniques, maximal lifts and improperly supervised lifts.

DENTISTRY IN THE 21ST CENTURY SNORING & OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA

LIVE

Clenching or grinding your teeth, excessive daytime sleepiness, and snoring, may not be a simple matter. Snoring may be more than a bad habit, and is considered a major indicator of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), which is a Serious Medical Condition — with a Possible Dental Solution. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is reported to be a major, independent risk factor for: High Blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and cognitive impairment.

Lucie

Almost all Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients are snorers, but not all snorers have OSA. Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) management may be facilitated by: Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) or Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP). Our team has continuing training in Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies. Perhaps you should talk to your physician, or let’s talk.

Last-minute shoppers beware

T

here is no desperation like mall desperation. Deep in December with no gifts yet purchased, matching footspeed and keen instincts with the other serial procrastinators. Those Christmas Eve gift buyers are an odd breed. Like a bacteria that resists antibiotics, they resist holiday shopping and rational planning. It is a mall you know well, and

if it wasn’t it will be by the time you finish circling the place for a parking spot. Twice around and you secretly vow to bring a brush to paint the lines of your own parking stall. Three times and you begin to wonder if there isn’t too much emphasis on materialism in our society, and whether your friends and family members wouldn’t be better served by a pretentious lecture on society’s woes than actual continued on page 27

How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah? How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas? BOTH WRITTEN BY JANE YOLEN, THE BLUE SKY PRESS.

T

hese two wonderfully illustrated picture books are easy reads for kids and fun for parents too. Both books feature a colourful collection of dinosaurs causing some mischief during the holiday season, one during Chanukah and one on Christmas Eve. Or are they? You’ll have to read to the end to find out. Author Jane Yolen’s prose is lyrical and humorous. Written in a rhyming pattern, the books present festive stories in an educational and entertaining format. How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah? follows a number of longtoothed, spiky, big-footed, horned dinos through some of the highlights

of the eight festive days of Chanukah. This book contains delightful dinosaur naughtiness especially entertaining for children who are familiar with Chanukah. It also presents an amusing and informative introduction for children who are not familiar with Chanukah. How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas? is written in the same rhyming pattern, and follows a similarly horned and big-footed troupe of dinosaurs as they peek at gifts, eat Santa’s cookies and lick all the candy canes. These big and colourful books are cheerful additions to the holiday season. ROSALIND DUANE

gifts. And then you park. Checking your watch (it’s late, it’s late) you decide you don’t have time to put your jacket and toque in the trunk. The song on the mall speakers is some Muzak version of a seasonal tune with bells and people laughing all the way. It is meant to calm the nerves, but the effect is the opposite. You immediately find the perfect gift, and just as quickly you realize it’s the perfect gift for you, and that no one else you know would be remotely interested in the illustrated history of American rockabilly. Fear takes its toll, and you become certain the speakers are pumping out the same three Muzak Christmas carols on an interminable loop. The ability for logical thought is strained. It’s also hotter than you expected and a layer of sweat is bubbling up from your skin but it’s much too late to drop your jacket and toque off at the car. You have 11 people to shop for and 90 minutes before the mall closes. It’s time to become a strictly reactive animal.

“What’s that? A door crasher sale? Better luck next year, Grandma,” you snarl, pouncing ahead of the polite people as you swerve towards the bargains that may knock at least three relatives off your list, because really, who can’t use a mini laundry hamper? Shamefully, I must admit. I have been this shopper. (Except for the snarling at Grandma bit.) However, while leaving everything until the last minute can be stressful, there are also benefits. For instance, I have never bought anything that spoiled before Christmas morning. There are disadvantages to relying purely on instinct. One Christmas, a

video game caught my eye as being perfect for my brother. Unfortunately, it had also caught my eye the previous year. Shortly after that I started keeping all my gift receipts in my pocket while people unwrapped their presents. You may read this article and smile with just a hint of smugness, because, after all, you finished your Christmas shopping before most people carved their Halloween pumpkins. But shopping too soon, besides being cowardly, can also backfire. If you purchase an iPhone in September, you’re sure to feel foolish when the latest model, the one with voice activated dialing and an app that irons your pants while streaming TV shows is released in December. Perhaps there is no really good method of buying presents because, after all, they’re only things, and the greatest gifts are those intangible moments we share, and those feelings we touch in our loved ones. That’s what I’m asking for this year. That and, of course, the illustrated history of American rockabilly. JEREMY SHEPHERD

Mixing up the menu

B

efore you know it the holiday season will sneak up on you and guests will be knocking at your door. Even if you usually serve traditional family dishes year after year, you may have to tweak your menu from time to time to suit food allergies or tastes. Adjusting your menu for wheat allergies, lactose or gluten intolerance, or religious or spiritual preferences shouldn’t cause stress. Just try to remember that cooking for guests should be about pleasing the guests and not just a showcase for the cook’s talent. Among your guests this year, you may even find (gulp) a vegetarian. Vegetarians have been around for a long time but they still seem to stump some hosts. Whether it’s a friend or relative who has recently stopped eating meat or a new friend or relative who is joining your celebrations for the first time, vegetarians are making informed decisions about their health and their diet as are people who choose to eat meat. They are not vegetarians just to throw a wrench into your holiday plans. Vegetarians shouldn’t be offended by the meat items on your menu, so you shouldn’t have to throw out your plump, roast turkey. A few simple considerations might help ensure that your menu suits everyone at the table. The simple thing to remember about vegetarians is that they don’t eat meat. That includes meat-based stock, such as chicken stock or beef stock. Vegetarians also don’t eat birds (birds count as meat, so no chicken or turkey). And they don’t eat fish. Some people who don’t eat red meat but do eat fish call themselves vegetarians, but true vegetarians don’t eat any animals. It’s OK to ask ahead of time if your guest eats fish just in case. It is also OK

to ask your guest if they want to bring their own main dish if you’re not sure what to make. However, if you want to offer some options, simply think of one really great meal your family eats that doesn’t include meat (vegetarian lasagna, no-meat perogies, stuffed red peppers, etc.). There are also many ready-made vegetarian options in the frozen foods aisle of local supermarkets. But since there are many “hidden” ingredients in processed foods that are actually meat by-products, it’s probably safer to splurge on some items from one of the many popular and well-known brands at your local organic food store (read the ingredients list). Any vegetables you were planning to cook will be suitable for vegetarians as long as they are not cooked in the roasting pan with your meaty main course. If you’re making your famous roasted potatoes, remember to roast some outside the pan for your veggie guest. (Roasting a bit of stuffing outside the bird would also be a welcome treat.) Unfortunately, the popular practice of coating veggies with cheese sauce doesn’t work for most vegetarians. A lot of cheeses are made with rennet, which usually comes from the stomach membrane of cows. You can look for rennet-free cheese, there are many available in local stores, or you can simply serve your cheese sauce on the side. That is also a good idea for sauces and gravies for vegetables and side dishes, such as mashed potatoes. (It will give you an excuse to dust off your holiday-themed gravy boats.) Consider adding small dishes of nuts, rolls, crackers or raw veggies to the table for safe grazing during the meal. The only thing to remember about dessert is that lard comes from the fatty tissue of pigs, so substitute butter options for lard in your dessert recipes. Consider offering a simple fruit and ice cream dish as a safe option. If your guest is vegan, it means they don’t eat meat, eggs or dairy products, or dairy by-products. There are many vegan breads available, as well as meat and butter substitutes, although you may need to visit your local organic or health-food grocery. A quick chat with your vegan guest beforehand might be helpful in choosing some menu options. Family traditions are important during the holidays but so is showing kindness. Making everyone feel welcome and included at your dinner table is a great nod to the spirit of the season.

Chile focusing more on regional wines Notable Potables

Tim Pawsey

REVIEWING my tasting travels through Chile, it’s not hard to be impressed by the wealth of noteworthy wines emerging, often from lesser-known producers (several of whom I’m hopeful will show up soon on local shelves). New names we’ll be watching for in coming months include Calcu, Maquis and Apaltagua. However, it’s also gratifying to witness the transformation that’s been taking place within the industry at large. Major brands, who more than

Case in point: long established Undurraga, which, under new ownership since 2007, has made an about-face turn with its emphasis on well-made, regional wines that often over-deliver, especially in the aptly named Terroir Hunter range. Renowned for its cleanly crafted entry-level wines and

Winemaker Matias Rios, at Cono Sur’s helm since 2003, enjoys a well-earned reputation for moving the sustainable agenda forward, while at the same time maintaining the brand’s notoriety for affordability. Under his watch, Cono Sur became the world’s first carbon neutral winery and also was among the first to spearhead a switch to lightweight bottles, all in the name of reducing emissions. Here’s a clutch of good value wines at various levels that underscore the changes taking place, with many more

Clean, fresh and a real deal at $10.99, 89 pts. Perfect with pad Thai or mildly spiced dishes. ■ Cono Sur 20 Barrel Chardonnay 2011 Bump it up a notch for this well-balanced Chard that sports a creamy top before citrus, peach and mineral notes wrapped in elegant oak in a focused, quite complex palate. PWS 90 pts. Lobster would be good. ■ Cono Sur “Bicycle” Pinot Noir 2011 (Central Valley) Savoury dusty notes on top

followed by cherry rhubarb and earthy notes wrapped in decent acidity for flexible food pairing. BCLS $15.99, 88 pts. ■ Undurraga Sibaris Pinot Noir 2011 (Maipo) Bright cherry notes on top followed by pleasing spicy and savoury notes on the medium-weighted palate with well-integrated tannins and spicy notes through the close.

A vital North Shore resource centre for busy moms

When Boomers and Echoes Kids and Maternity first opened in Lower Lonsdale March 1983, it found a place as a vital in supply source for infant and maternity clothes and supplies for busy North and West Vancouver mothers. “I think a lot of our success is in our mix of consignment and new products,” says Boomers and Echoes’Susan Ping.“In consignment you can find some unique top quality items at reasonable priceslightly used brand name toys, strollers and car seats and lightly loved designer name cloths. In the retail‘new’side, we strive to bring in products that offer the best value for our customers. Some of our products are proudly local like our Padraig slippers from North Vancouver, and some are from as far away as Brazil, like our Tip Toey Joeys.” From the very beginning, their focus has been on quality. “Boomers and Echoes first opened its doors almost 30 years ago as a consignment store for babies and maternity clothes, and equipment like high chairs and strollers and second hand toys. Then the store moved up to 16th Street- always maintaining a high standard of quality and personal service with a‘special request book’to notify customers when an item they were looking for came in. New lines were brought in to compliment the consignment products- like boutique baby clothes and exclusive maternity wear and local products were added. When my two sisters and I bought the business 9 years ago we moved to the present location with lots of windows and air conditioning.” The mix of new and consignment products helps parents get top quality products and save money. “Our customers like to save money- by buying a consignment crib for instanceand putting the money saved into an organicmattressinsteadofaP.V.C.mattress. We like to show customers how they can save money and be conscientious and environmentally friendly by using cloth diapers instead of disposables.” What Boomers and Echoes specializes in is detailed product knowledge and

unbeatable service. The emphasis is always on you, the customer. “Our staff are friendly and love finding that special, unique gift that will be remembered for years to come. Our customers often tell me our staff are knowledgeable and that we are like a resource centre. I think a lot of first time moms appreciate that we specialize in custom fitting nursing bras and give them tips on nursing and even show them tips on how to put their baby in a car seat. Some of the moms even tell me that their moms used to shop for them at Boomers. That makes me feel so proud, and like we are all one big family. How many people are as lucky as me to be working in a family business serving other families?” As part of their evolving service culture, Boomers and Echoes is a certified Car Seat Inspection Centre to make sure your children stay safe.

WHISTLER FOR PARENTS

Neville Judd Contributing Writer

Kids optional

WE all love our kids, but let’s face it, they cramp our style sometimes. Especially in a place like Whistler, where the potential for adult indulgence abounds. As another ski and snowboard season dawns upon us, I ask you this: Have parents not earned a little indulgence? From the poolside hammocks at the Scandinave Spa in Whistler, yes we have. From the tranquil cross-country ski trails of Callaghan Valley, certainly. From the excitement found atop a throbbing 4-stroke Bombardier snowmobile, hell yeah! The best part of a trip can be in the planning, but for parents, sometimes it’s easier to leave it to experts. Enjoy Whistler offers personalized service to ensure travellers strapped for time can still enjoy a memorable visit, with or without children. During a flying 72-hour visit to Whistler late last season, I drove fast, fired rifles, relaxed in a spa and skied till I dropped. I think I may have even had a better time than my kids. Some of it was hard work though. Take the Biathlon Experience, for example, a two-hour immersion into the oldest winter sport of them all. At the Whistler Olympic Park in Callaghan Valley, adults can try the sport, a combination of cross-country skiing and rifle marksmanship. Aside from one regrettable hunting trip in Ireland 20 years ago (the rabbit got away), I’ve never done either. That was soon obvious to my instructor Antoine, who coached me through the finer points of skate skiing. In contrast to classic cross-country skis, skate skis are thinner, trickier, and faster. “Tougher to learn, but easier to master,” said Antoine, who should know. He started 30 years ago, when he was 22 months old. After some advice on balancing and edging, I began shifting my weight from side to side, achieving a clumsy version of V-skating — no poles, just pushing off with one ski and repeating with the other. We moved on to the classic diagonal stride, coordinating a forward poling arm with the opposite driving leg. Antoine made it look like ballet, all grace and elegance. I looked like Bambi with haemorrhoids. I was exhausted by the time we reached the Biathlon Range, where I at least got to lie down. It was the part I’d been waiting for: Firing a 22-calibre rifle. Antoine demonstrated, telling me to focus on my breathing, and pointing out that

Nor would the cooked breakfast and three cups of coffee I’d had earlier, but I persevered through an initial round of near misses. After more advice from Antoine, and adjusting for the winds, I hit five out of five. (Ask Antoine!) Would the Whistler Olympic Park really go to such lengths to make me feel good? “The size of grapefruits, you say?” my wife whispered to me later that evening See Snowmobiles page 34

through the mist of a eucalyptus steam bath at Whistler’s Scandinave Spa. It wasn’t a whisper of hushed reverence; in fact I detected a hint of sarcasm. Talking among guests is strongly discouraged at Scandinave, which offers hydrotherapy and massage packages. The hydrotherapy comprises outdoor baths — some hot, some cold — with a sauna, steam room and solarium. We followed the hot-cold relaxation sequence three or four times, and aside from the occasional gasp in the Nordic plunge pools, we observed the spa’s code of silence. There was plenty of time to talk, back at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Our kids were making the most of the hotel’s pools and hot tubs, where silence is discouraged. The hotel is more progressive than most when it comes to children. Not only do its chefs offer a children’s menu that is actually healthy (and delicious), its gym offers guided fitness training for seven to 17-year-olds. On Blackcomb the next day, my son Ryan explained to me Whistler Blackcomb Live, the Telus Mobile app. Track your runs using GPS, clock distances

travelled, vertical shredded and maximum speeds. As if further proof were needed that Ryan’s cool and I’m not, the app is available on his iPhone, but not on my Blackberry. I was stressed to learn that the app logged Ryan’s fastest speed at almost 80 kilometres per hour. But then Ryan’s a 15 year-old who snowboards and I’m a 45-yearold dad who skis: As long as his mum doesn’t find out, he’ll be fine. Not that any of us were slowing down the following day. The biggest adrenaline rush of the weekend came courtesy of Canadian Snowmobile Adventures’ Callaghan Cruiser. After getting geared up in helmets, gloves and heavy waterproof jackets, our guide Morgan gave us a detailed safety talk about the four-stroke Bombardier snowmobile and the conditions ahead. The engine sparked to life, and I was actually a little nervous until Ryan leaned into my ear and told me to step on it. The Callaghan Cruiser may be billed as “family friendly,” but I still felt just slightly rebellious whizzing around wide and winding trails in a blizzard. We followed our guide Morgan to a frozen lake near Northair, a

smelled like dog poop and unfamiliar because it was in my house. My house is supposed to smell like lavender and vanilla, not dog poop. As I entered my living room I quickly found the offensive item. Kind of hard not to on a cream-coloured carpet! A perverse sculpture of sorts it was, one log stacked neatly on top of another. Then I looked at Piper and Zumi while pointing at the poop and they both gave me a look that said: “Seriously?” Piper left the room he was so offended by my assumption. But I knew it was not my dogs that left me the surprise but rather my houseguest Max, the year-and-a-half-old beagle. Looking over at Max, he sat on the leather chair, which he wasn’t supposed to be on, and wagged his little tail, happier than a pig in . . . When I called my girlfriend and inquired about this behaviour her response was, ”Oh yeah, forgot to mention that part.” What part? The part that says “My dog still poops in the house?” House training is probably the most challenging part of raising a dog because it requires so much consistency on our part along with timing and a degree of canine body language intuitiveness. When puppies are being taught the rules of where to poop, I generally suggest some simple guidelines. First, never let your dog roam unsupervised because

When you cannot supervise them, keep them confined in an exercise pen. After each meal, when they wake up from a nap, after a play session, take the puppy outside immediately to do their business and be patient. If you are expecting to have your puppy do its business within the first two minutes of being outside, it will be outside all day without squatting a darn thing. If you go outside with the attitude that it will take all day for them to get busy, they usually get it done within a few moments. Sticking to these basic rules usually gets a young dog house training

within two weeks. Then there are dogs like Max. Max is a bit tricky. He is actually really well house broken. He asks to go outside and is happy to do his business rain or shine. When you take Max for a walk, he does his business but also likes to hold some of his ‘stuff’ back and share it in the backyard once he gets home. If you are not aware of this or forgetful, you will find his little messages on your living room floor. Why does Max do this? Because he is marking territory. He not only uses urine to mark territory while on a walk but his poop while at home. Most dogs do this but we don’t think much of it. Why would we really? Who has the time to contemplate the rationale behind poop placement by dogs?

So, what is the training prescription for Max? Well it is more for his owners. They have to be aware of this habit and whenever they come home from a walk, take Max outside right away and allow him to leave his mark in the yard, not the kitchen. Just like a regular house training routine, consistency will pay off and as long as Max does not have another marking episode in the house, he will have broken the habit of marking inside within a few weeks and begin asking to be let outside as soon as he comes into the house at the end of his walk.

the North Shore title, showed their strength throughout the tournament. They outscored their opponents 19-0 through the first four games to make the semifinals where things got tougher against St. Michaels University. Two goals from scoring whiz Leah Frome — who ended the tournament with 10 goals — paced the Cavaliers to a nail-biting 2-1 win. “St. Michaels always comes out hard and they’re a very well coached team,” said Gold, adding that the semifinal scare added even more fire to Collingwood’s cause as they geared up for the final.

The teams tied for first place in the North Shore AA league with 19 points apiece but a 00 game between the two teams that turned into an overtime shootout victory for STA back in September gave the Saints first place and an easier road through the playoffs. Making that chip on Sentinel’s shoulder even bigger was the fact that Sentinel ended the season with five regulation wins in eight games while STA registered only three, gaining ground in the standings by scoring five overtime shootout wins. Once the playoffs started STA had two cracks at making provincials but lost their opener 3-1 to Burnaby’s Cariboo Hill. Sentinel, meanwhile, hammered Collingwood 6-1 to set up the one-game showdown against STA for the final berth. Sentinel went into the contest believing they were the best AA team in the league despite their second-place ranking. “We were frustrated — we played to a 0-0 tie against them (in September) and dominated the game,” said coach Rob Inman. “If you look at the standings, Sentinel five wins, STA (three) wins. And STA gets the banner and it’s like, ‘what?’” With that thought stewing

Cavs regain B.C. crown Collingwood avenges last year’s loss to Shawnigan

Andy Prest aprest@nsnews.com

THE Collingwood Cavaliers senior girls field hockey team claimed the AA provincial championship banner Nov. 9 in Burnaby, avenging a heartbreaking defeat in the process.

Ever since they lost to the Shawnigan Lake Stags in last year’s championship game the Cavaliers have been bent on getting to this year’s final, hopefully against those same Stags, and getting some revenge. Last week they got their rematch and their revenge, beating Shawnigan 1-0 in a tight and tense final. “It really meant a lot to the girls to win provincials and they really wanted to play Shawnigan in the final and to beat them for their own sense of accomplishment,” said Ashleigh Gold, Cavaliers co-coach along with Catherine Underwood and Sara Bruner. “(Shawnigan) is a very well-coached team but it felt great to come back and defeat them in the final.” The Collingwood team that made this year’s final was close to identical to last year’s team, making the rematch with Shawnigan all the more fraught with meaning. “The desire to win and to beat that school was really deep in them,” said Gold. “It was a big passion in the girls and it helped drive them to then end.” The Cavaliers, fresh off an upset over Handsworth to claim

Single goal stands up in tense final From page 40

In the final Hailey Reeves got the Cavaliers on the board 17 minutes into the first half, swatting in the rebound off of a blast from Katarina Angus. From that point on the play went back and forth but the ball never again found the back of the net. In the final five minutes Collingwood ragged the ball in the Shawnigan Lake end, killing the clock with a bit of keep-away. “It was nerve-wracking . . . it was a long five minutes,” said Gold with a laugh. Then it was over and the Cavaliers met in the traditional dog pile of champions. “It was just an explosion of joy and tears and pure happiness when that final whistle blew.”

The win gave the Cavaliers their third title in the last five years — since 2008 they’ve won gold, silver, gold, silver and now gold again. This year’s squad was guided by Frome, Reeves and Angus, co-captains who have all played in the junior national team program. With Frome up front, Reeves in midfield and Angus on defence they formed the central spine of the team. “Leah being on the forward line and scoring goals, Hailey maintaining the possession on the field and the communication, and Katarina just holding the defence — nobody can get through Katarina, she’s an extremely skilled defender — having those three up the middle as the

core of the team drives us. They were kind of the pillars to our success. . . . Just to have that strength down the middle of the field provides confidence for everybody,” said Gold. She was quick to add, however that every Collingwood player stepped up during the championship tournament. “They were determined, they were focused, they had one goal and they played their hearts out to get that championship and that banner,” she said. “They wanted to go out there and dominate and that’s exactly what they did. They had it in their hands the whole time and they kept focus, which is incredible to see for high school athletes.”

UBC ended the tournament with a 4-0-1 record, capping off an undefeated 12-0-1 season with their second consecutive national title and third in the last four years. “I think our team really deserved it from how we played all year long,” said Haughn in a release. “Getting MVP is just the cherry on top.” The five-foot-three midfielder was a force on both ends of the field, setting up numerous goals and earning MVP honours despite not notching a single goal in the tournament. The MVP nod, however, wasn’t the only accolade Haughn earned as the season wrapped up. Before the tournament began the Handsworth grad and senior national team member earned both the Canada West field hockey rookie of the year and the CIS rookie of the year awards while also being named a secondteam All-Canadian. Following her national championship performance Haughn was named both the Canada West and CIS female athlete of the week. She ended the Canada West regular season tied for the league lead in goals with teammate Kate Gillis with seven apiece. Haughn wasn’t the only North Shore link to the national final. The UBC and U of T rosters listed a combined 11 players from North or West Vancouver. Joining Haughn on the T-Birds were Rachel Donohoe, Samantha Saddler, Brittany Quinville and Katrina Davis while Toronto featured Kelley Lusk, Lauren Mansfield, Siobhan Gordon, Alex Thicke, Britt Siu and Heather Haughn, Hannah’s older sister.

B.C. championships start tomorrow for Spartans From page 40

in their minds, the Spartans stormed to a 2-0 win over the Saints, securing the coveted provincial spot while leaving STA with a North Shore championship but no shot at B.C. glory. It was a tight, tough game, said Inman, but his team wasn’t going to be denied. “STA played very well,” he said. “It was a very hard-fought game. The referees could have easily handed out some yellow cards to both teams because there was some pretty aggressive play throughout the game but . . . they saw that the two first-place teams were playing off for the right to go to the B.C.’s and they let the play continue.” Sentinel will now carry the North Shore flag at provincials starting tomorrow at Burnaby Lake West Sports Complex. They won’t have any time for settling in — Monday morning at 9 a.m. they’ll take on Fraser Valley champs Aldergrove. Their other pool opponents

are Kelowna’s Okanagan Mission Monday at 12:45 p.m. and Nelson’s L.V. Rogers Tuesday at 11 a.m. To have a shot at the medals they’ll need to finish first in their pool. It’s a tall order but Inman believes he’s got the squad to do it. “We definitely have a chance of finishing in the top four with the team we have,” he said. “We’ve got a very tough opponent first game out. . . . When you’re talking provincial championships, it’s a one game knockout type of thing. And it’s going to be raining. Anything can happen if you’ve got a tight, tight game and it’s raining — a ball can slip through someone’s hands. Anything can happen.” Whatever does happen, Inman is hoping his boys will make some memories that will last forever. “Years from now you can tell your kids that you played in the B.C. high school championship,” he told his team. “We’ll just do our best.”

Harkins helps B.C. win title

NORTH Vancouver’s Jansen Harkins helped Team B.C. claim gold at the Western Canada U16 Challenge held Nov. 1-4 in Calgary.

Harkins racked up four goals — including a hat trick in the first period — and one assist in an explosive five-point performance in the tournament final against the twotime defending champions from Alberta as Team B.C. cruised to a 9-3 win to take the Cup. This was the first Cup win for Team B.C. since the tournament’s inception in 2009. Harkins is a forward with the North Shore/Burnaby-based Vancouver North West Giants of the B.C. Major Midget League. He was picked second overall in the 2012 Western Hockey League bantam draft by the Prince George Cougars. — Andy Prest

CALDWELL, Anita Marie (nee LeGal) May 30, 1932 - Nov. 13, 2012 It is with sadness and great love we announce that Anita Marie Caldwell passed peacefully into the arms of our Lord Tuesday, November 13th, 2012. Mom was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the third of ten children of Joachim and Lodia LeGal. At age 12, she came to live with her Aunt in Vancouver. It was while she was working for Eaton’s that she learned to ski and as a result met her husband of 59 years, Wesley Caldwell, on Hollyburn Mountain. Mom and Dad built their home in Dollarton, North Vancouver in 1958, where they have resided to this day. Mom took great pleasure in raising her children and encouraging us in whatever pursuits we chose. Never having had the opportunity to complete her grade 12, Mom returned to school as an adult to achieve this goal and then enrolled at Capilano College. Mom loved learning and was always open to new experiences. She enjoyed swimming, camping, boating, traveling with her family and was a committed member of her church. She is survived by her husband Wesley & children Donna Kill (Ed), Kathryn Mercier & Steven, granddaughters Jessica & Courtney (Len), great grandchildren Davis & Coen, sisters, Yvette Poirier (Edgar), Diane Trudeau (Emile), Lorraine Gauvreau (Louis), Monique Paulhus (Ray), & brother Denis LeGal (Berthe) as well as many nieces and nephews. Prayers will be offered at 7:15 p.m. on Friday, November 23, 2012 at Christ the King Church, 22630 – 48 Ave., Langley, B.C. A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, November 24, 2012 at Christ the King Church at 10:00 a.m. with interment to follow at Gardens of Gethsemani, 15800 32 Ave. Surrey, B.C.

Our bright little Nini passed away in her sleep on November 12, 2012 at the age of 94 years. “Joanie Girl” is much loved and will be sadly missed by her daughter Brenda, her grandchildren, Kim and Darren, her great-grandchildren, Jordan and Kyanna and all her South African and Canadian family and friends. Joan grew up in a small village in South Africa, was married at 21 and widowed at 23. She married “Billy Boy” in 1947 and after he passed away she immigrated to Canada at the young age of 83 years to be with her daughter and family. Joanie loved to dance, she knew all the words to the army songs, and lived her life with a sparkle, good humor and great courage. We are sincerely grateful to all the staff at West Vancouver Care Center where she spent the last 3 years surrounded by people who cared for her, laughed with her and even danced with her. Our sincerest thanks to the nurses and caregivers who gave her comfort, friendship and care. No more will the halls ring with her greetings of “Darling” and “Sweetheart”. She will be missed. There will be no service held as per Joan’s request. In the Spring of 2013 her family and friends will celebrate her wonderful and courageous life in a garden filled with sunshine and flowers as she would have wished. Joan loved animals and memorial contributions to the West Vancouver S.P.C.A will be greatly appreciated. God Bless dear Nini. Know that you are forever loved and always missed.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: You change focus midweek, from curiosity to understanding, from secrets and research to “knowing.” Your philosophical, compassionate, “we are one” side lifts you to new heights of understanding, new gentle regions of insight. A love affair might lie on the near-term horizon. Travel, education, law or media are strongly favoured late week into late December – these pursuits might lead you to a new affair. Sunday/Monday are hopeful, friendly – you’re happy. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy and charisma soar Thursday eve onward. Start NOTHING new this week. Taurus April 20-May 20: Midweek’s the pivot: on Wednesday you slowly turn from surface relationships to deep, committed ones, or to a split. It’s an all-ornothing time. Luck occurs if you view “secondary results,” follow clues, and patch together events/ options. This applies especially in areas of intimacy, sexual desire, finances and partnership money, health diagnoses, research and lifestyle change. E.g., an investment might not be obvious, but if you look at what you already possess, or the industry that signs your paycheque, you find a good investment. Wishes come true midweek. Start NOTHING new. Gemini May 21-June 20: One last week of delay, potential mistakes and wrong directions or false starts. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. The focus of your days changes midweek, from a past month of work, boredom, and health concerns, to the weeks ahead, which hold new horizons, opportunities, exciting meetings and new faces, relocation potentials, negotiations, contracts, dealings with the public, and “fame.” Sunday/Monday are wise, loving, intellectual. Be ambitious, dutiful Tuesday/Wednesday – you are starting to sense your “new career.” Wish fulfillment, popularity, flirtations late week.

Condos/ Townhouses

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of pleasure, beauty, charming children and romance comes to an end midweek (Tuesday to Thursday) – a gentle end, filled with understanding – and a deeper or higher love. Wednesday begins a month of work, duties, dependents’ care, health and nutrition factors. But DO NOT start any new projects/tasks, relationships or ventures before Nov. 26. Mysteries, clues, research – and financial or sexual consequences – arise Sunday/Monday. Be wary of making a commitment. Thursday night to Saturday piques your ambition and brings situations of status, prestige. Careful Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start no new projects nor relationships before Nov. 26. A month of domestic, realty,security,retirement,foundational and nutritional concerns yields, Wednesday, to a month of romance, pleasure, beauty, expansion, self-expression, speculation and venturesome risk. Take those risks – you’ll be on a four-week winning streak. (But read the first sentence again.) Sunday/Monday brings relationships, co-operation or challenge (luckiest Sunday eve/night). Midweek cracks open the door to mystery – and golden answers. Wisdom, gentle love, far travel and education arrive late week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A busy month ends Wednesday, and a slow, restorative, relaxing, domestic month begins. However, start nothing new before Nov. 26. This week might disrupt your investments or bank account (Thursday/Friday) – there is both an opportunity (before 7:30 p.m. Thursday) and a danger here (7:30 p.m. to Friday morning). Tackle chores Sunday/Monday – success and frustrations mingle. Relationships face you Tuesday to Thursday – this interval is almost wholly good, even magical, but deception or miscalculation is possible where home, family or residence enters. Finances, sex late week.

BIG Savings...

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of money matters and sensual attractions ends Wednesday. The new month will feature paperwork, reports, errands, media and mail projects, travel, casual friends and siblings. There are no huge stakes – so be busy but relaxed. An opportunity can arise to travel afar, be published, teach or attend higher learning, win a lawsuit, or fall in love, even wed. But listen. Libra: start NOTHING before Nov. 26. Until then, till the field of the past. Sunday/Monday are romantic, accent pleasure. Midweek brings chores. Relationships, new horizons intrigue late week – be careful. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy remains high, but the accent shifts now from your personal concerns to your money and possessions. In the weeks ahead, chase new clients, seek a pay raise, buy/sell, and pursue, if you dare, a sensual person. (Daring will be the least requirement early: this is a friendly, polite, easy link. The daring part is being sure enough about your future and your desires to commit to this easy, but perhaps mild, bond.) DON’T start anything new before Nov. 26. Early week is for home. Tuesday-Thursday is romantic, creative. Work, health late week – caution Friday morn. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Wednesday ends a month of weariness, health concerns, weighty chores and low charisma. The weeks ahead feature high energy, clout, magnetism and effectiveness. Call in markers, seek favours, start significant projects (NOT before the 26th). Launch yourself toward a person, partnership, faraway place, fame, public dealings, negotiations, contracts and agreements. Your luck and progress will come through another (others generally) so be charming, eager and opportunistic. If someone gives you an opening, seize it. Love, beauty Friday.

Nov. 18 - 24, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A celebratory air fades midweek, as a month of duty, management demands, health concerns and weariness, begins. In the weeks ahead, be charitable, seek a broader spirituality, and co-operate with government, institutions and large corporations. However, don’t start anything, especially in these areas, before Nov. 26. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Details, paperwork, errands, trips, communications and casual meetings fill midweek. Spiritual, governmental matters worry, but social/love urges inspire you. Domestic concerns need caution Thursday late night, confidence Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Pressures ease. A month of ambition and tests yields to a month (starting Wednesday) of friends, popularity, light romance (which can turn deeper) entertainment and optimism. Don’t start anything new (including relationships) before Nov. 26.Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/ Monday (better after 2 p.m. Sunday) – get things done. Chase money, protect possessions midweek. You might be confused about a money matter: success lies in rethinking it from a career perspective (or a boss’s, parent’s). Talk, travel, driving fill Thursday eve to Saturday: take care Friday morning. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A thoughtful month passes Wednesday, and a new one, of pressure and deadlines, ambition and career, reputation and authority, will begin. You’ll be tested, and your reactions noted. This week, hold to the status quo – start nothing before Nov. 26. (Your thinking’s too fuzzy – though loving – until then.) Rest, lie low and contemplate Sunday/ Monday. Your energy and charisma soar TuesdayThursday. Chase money Thursday eve and Friday after mid-morn – be careful in-between. From midweek into mid-December, travel, law, higher education and cultural venues favour you, bring joy. timstephens@shaw.ca
