West Van offers dog licence amnesty Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

IF your dog has been hiding from the law in West Vancouver, the time has come to confess.

LAUREN Philley and RCMP Const. Marlies Dick lead this year’s participants out of the North Vancouver detachment in the Torch Run Wednesday. The torch was handed to West Van runners and members of the West Vancouver Police Department and then run to Dundarave Pier. The annual run supports Special Olympics.

The District of West Vancouver is offering an amnesty throughout June on its animal control bylaws. Dog owners caught in violation of the bylaws won’t be handed a fine this month. Instead they’ll get a warning, a pamphlet detailing the district’s bylaws, as well as a free leash and poop-and-scoop bags. “It’s a brief time to take a soft-hands approach to allow people to come forward,” said Jeff McDonald, the District of West Vancouver’s director of communications. “The approach is designed to encourage people who have never licensed their pets or who have let their licences lapse take care of that and understand the importance of doing so.” See Dogs page 8

Clark names Yamamoto to cabinet

Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

NORTH Vancouver-Lonsdale MLA Naomi Yamamoto was named as minister of state for tourism and small business in Premier Christy Clark’s new cabinet Friday, while veteran West VancouverCapilano MLA Ralph Sultan was conspicuously absent from the roster. Clark made the cabinet announcement against a backdrop of Vancouver’s working port at Canada Place Friday afternoon, naming a mix of 19 returning and new political faces to cabinet posts. In naming Yamamoto, Clark praised the “tremendous” progress the North Vancouver MLA has made working with small business,

N. Van MLA gets tourism, small business; Sultan out in the cold

adding B.C. is determined to be the most “small business friendly” province in the country. Yamamoto said Friday she was “thrilled” and excited to be returning to her cabinet post. “Small business plays such a significant part of our provincial economy,” she said. Yamamoto was the only North Shore MLA named to the cabinet by Clark, who left returning MLAs Sultan and Jane Thornthwaite — as well as newcomer Jordan Sturdy — sitting on the back bench. Speaking after the announcement on Friday, Sultan — who was appointed to cabinet by Clark for the first time last year

— acknowledged he was disappointed, if philosophical, about not making the cut this time. “Would I rather be in cabinet? Yes, I’d rather be in cabinet. But it’s her choice and I support it fully. It’s going to be a good cabinet whether I’m in it or not,” he said. “I support the cabinet fully and I support the premier fully.” Sultan refused to directly address speculation that he was passed over for not volunteering to step down so Clark could run in a byelection in West Vancouver. He acknowledged there had been discussion about the possibility of his stepping aside, but added, “there were many discussions going on concurrently” with other MLAs. Sultan said he made it clear to constituents who asked “My See Sultan page 5

SUNDAY FOCUS SEA SHEPHERD ACTIVIST AIDS COLUMBIA RIVER SEA LIONS

Protector of the dammed

Christine Lyon

clyon@nsnews.com

IT’S shortly after 4 a.m. and darkness still blankets the Columbia River Gorge.

Jeff Matthews wakes up inside a van parked near the south bank, hops in the driver’s seat and, like every morning, makes the short drive to the Bonneville Dam — located about 65 kilometres east of Portland, Ore. Not discouraged by the rain, he walks toward the water for a better view of the sunrise. “The scenery is just stunning,” says the North Vancouver resident. Suddenly, an ear-splitting bang pierces the morning silence and snaps Matthews back to reality. Rubber buckshot, firecrackers and seal bombs are among the hazing methods used to prevent California sea lions from eating the at-risk salmon and steelhead that congregate below the dam before heading upriver to spawn. “It’s hard to put human emotions onto an animal, but I’d watched them for enough days at that point,” Matthews says of the sea lions. “It was clear that they were in distress. They were panicked.” If non-lethal deterrence is not effective, the salmon-eating pinnipeds may be killed.

Seniors complex hearing set 125-unit proposed for Edgemont Village; no operator yet in place

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

DISTRICT of North Vancouver residents will have a chance to weigh in on the prospect of a seniors complex at Edgemont Village following council’s May 27 decision to send the project to public hearing. The three-storey, 125-unit facility is pencilled in for Canfield Crescent near Woodbine Drive and Highland Boulevard, just adjacent to the commercial core of Edgemont Village. Built around a courtyard, the centre would include 15 assisted-living units and 1215 care rooms for seniors with mental health problems such as dementia. The building would be approximately 40-feet tall with a floor space ratio of 1.5, which measures the building’s total floor space against the size of its lot. In order to realize the

project, council needs to authorize the rezoning of six single-family lots and allow the developer to buy 9,741 square feet of Canfield Crescent. The developer would have to provide the district with approximately $500,000 worth of community benefits. The halfa-million figure is equivalent to 50 per cent of the estimated increase in land value. The project received support from several residents hoping to stay close to home during their golden years. “I think there’s undoubtedly a need for this type of dwelling in North Vancouver,” said Coun. Robin Hicks. “I know many people have moved recently into such buildings, and they, for the most part, had to move out of the district.” The project’s opponents called it too massive and objected to the facility being debated before the conclusion of the Edgemont refresh process, which is expected to wrap up by the end of the year or early in 2014. The notion of delaying

intention was and is to serve out my four years as MLA for West Vancouver-Capilano. I made no secret of that.” Sultan added being a backbencher has its advantages. “I can do pretty well anything I damn well please and I intend to,” he said. “I’m not going to be a humble little mouse in the back row. You’ll notice Ralph.”

In announcing the cabinet, Clark’s speech emphasized many of the same themes driven home during the election campaign — the importance of jobs and the economy. Doug McArthur, professor of public policy at Simon Fraser University, said it wasn’t entirely surprising that Yamamoto was included in the cabinet while Sultan was left out. “She wants people who will fall in line,” he said.

OR the third time in two weeks, we bring you a story about serious injuries sustained by longboarders colliding with vehicles — all of them in West Vancouver where the activity is banned, without exception. West Vancouver police can issue a $45-fine, or chase the riders off to another hill in the District of North Vancouver where it’s still legal, at least for now. As evidenced by a look over their Vancouver Longboarders Facebook page, the majority of riders are deeply concerned about safety. They worry about their own and look out for each other. However, there are a handful that appear committed to marrying the daredevil sport with a rebellious attitude. The District of North Vancouver,

meanwhile, is likely taking notes as it takes a “wait and see” approach to whether it should ban the boards as well. Residents who want to see longboards piled up in bonfires most assuredly are. The longboarding question requires a co-ordinated and nuanced approach that involves all three North Shore governments, and the longboarding community, not a fractured patchwork of bans and free-for-alls. Unlike most recreationists, longboarders lack an organized user group and leadership that can help them keep their sport safe and legal. That needs to change. It’s an inherently risky sport, for sure. That’s part of what attracts people to it. So was skiing, once. But it is better to manage risk than to delude yourself into thinking you can legislate it away.

CapU ABE cuts mar regional mandate

“I don’t mind intelligent discourse about contrary points of view, but sticking on a button that says No More Than Four is not my idea of intelligent discourse.” West Vancouver Mayor Michael Smith takes a shot at some of the opponents of Grosvenor’s proposed six- and seven-storey Ambleside towers (from a June 2 news story). ••• “Con artists are con artists ’cause they’re good. The guy’s smooth, I’m just cynical. Nothing’s free, right?” Barrel carver Peter Forbes reflects on the charm of an alleged fraudster who tried to swap leather jackets of questionable quality for cash in a Rona parking lot (from a June 7 news story). ••• “So I took pictures of my son skiing two months after a heart transplant while not really believing we were doing that.” Shannon Westerlund discusses her 12-year-old son, Andrew, who is back at school just months after receiving a heart transplant at B.C. Children’s Hospital (from a June 2 news story).

Dear Editor: In 1968, North and West Vancouver, Squamish, Pemberton and Sechelt participated in a referendum. The Howe Sound school district required a “yes” vote so that local residents could attend what would become Capilano College. With the exception of Sechelt, all communities voted overwhelmingly in support of the creation of a community college. Communities also agreed to pay a two per cent tax to fund the creation of Capilano programs in the regions. When Capilano became a university, legislation

also allowed it to maintain its degree-granting status. This status maintains Capilano’s duty to serve the Howe Sound Corridor. The legislation specifies that institutions like Capilano that serve geographic regions must provide Adult Basic Education (ABE). However in 2011, ABE at the Squamish campus sustained a 38 per cent cut in programing. In spite of these cuts, ABE accounted for half of the students enrolled at the Squamish campus. ABE has the only supervised science lab accessible to adult learners in the corridor.

Adults pursue ABE to earn prerequisites for degree studies as well as health care and trade programs. Adults also take ABE as a step in skills upgrading and career changes, or WCB retraining agreements. Because of these needs, Capilano has been a fixture of ABE in Squamish for more than 40 years. On April 26, Capilano administrators proposed the elimination of all ABE at the Squamish campus. These cuts are significant for our community and our region.

Puppet bear goes back to the wild Dear Editor: Here is a mystery. I have been trying to give away my giant bear puppet to various groups, interpreters and theatre companies. He is just too big and heavy for my little environmental puppet theatre. But nobody wanted the poor guy. Mind you, he is pretty ugly, but, in his prime, was very useful in teaching young folks about how not to attract bears to our communities. So I left him at the clothing/household recycling bin where I live, to see if anyone would like to adopt him. I thought perhaps he could be a fierce looking mascot for a sports team. If not I was going to bring him back in, recycle his fur and finally put him to rest. Now walking home from Superstore today, lo and

behold a giant bear head was peering out at me from behind the bushes at the entrance to the Seymour River Greenway Trail at Lillooet Road and Seymour Parkway. How he got there, I do not know. Did he sneak away in the night? Perhaps he will be a reminder to passersby that bears do live and forage in the greenways adjacent to our busy urban population, and to be responsible about their household garbage disposal. I thought you would like this funny story. How he got to the Seymour River Greenway Trail is a mystery! Elise Roberts North Vancouver

Kudos to Gen Y for setting its own agenda

CASSANDRA Daily is an online compendium of the latest developments in the world of popular culture.

It ordinarily arrives in one’s in-box parcelled out in themes. This week’s topics included “mindful housing,” vintage teen literature, and new weather-related apps for smartphones, because apparently we’re all obsessed with atmospheric conditions. Not surprisingly, I was unaware of any of these manias. It’s ignorant slobs like me who would be most edified by attending Cassandra Daily’s recently announced “trend schools.” Unfortunately, however, the schools’ student body is not made up of oblivious dorks, but instead comprises “thousands of executives.” You and I know what that means — thousands of executives who are trying to sell people things. These are 2013’s Mad Men, signing up to learn how to hawk goods to a generation that sports pork pie hats and chest-length beards, and gets around perched on bamboo unicycles with built-in iPads. Cassandra Daily’s news release says its trend schools, which take place in New York and L.A., will have a “special focus on the changing face of Gens Y and Z.” Argh — those are my kids that the experts will be generalizing about, just so the thousands of executives can target them in their marketing. I understand that I have a bad attitude — what else

Going Coastal

Kate Zimmerman is new? In fact, if I don’t watch out, I might get sent to remedial trend school. That would be the worst: not only would I have to learn about baffling fads on the cusp of taking hold, I’d probably have to do a review of crazes past. Who can remember them? Except in the arena of food and drink, I’m trendaverse. I avoid keeping up with changes to our perfectly good English language. I can’t be the only one retching at the sight of TV ads about toilet paper telling us to “Enjoy the go” and the sound of radio pundits using the expression “the go-forward on this.” The fact that everybody else is doing or saying or thinking something is no reason for me to do so — that’s my credo. It hasn’t done me any special service in life, but it naturally follows that I’m a trend school nightmare. In my mind’s eye, I see myself standing before the headmistress at Cassandra Daily Trend School. Her physique is as gruesomely gristly as Madonna’s. Dressed in a ludicrous outfit of homespun hemp hotpants, her

blond hair in rasta braids, with a thin sheen of moustache wax twirling the ends of her purple eyebrows, she’s seated on top of a desk made of petrified organic carrots. “Lady, you’re obviously not our target demographic. Out!” she says. She looks pointedly at my baggy hand-me-down capri pants, unflattering oversized T-shirt and sensible non-slip sandals and presses a switch that makes the floor beneath me slide open and sends me plummeting to Remedial Trend School (RTS). RTS is both punishment and education centre. It feels like one of those giant stores where you can’t find the exit and everything is plasticized, was made in China and reeks of toxins. It’s not at all like the retro corner stores — “Housemade popsicles a specialty!” — that trend schools are sure to encourage their students to establish. According to Cassandra Daily, Gen Ys consider themselves to be “Venture Consumers” who support ideas and companies they believe in. (Gen Zs are 17 and under so they probably haven’t given that concept much thought.) They’re starting to ask for “debranded” goods and “blank-slate styles,” and reject “conspicuous branding,” which will be a relief to those of us who’ve tired of averting our eyes from juvenile FCUK sweatshirts. Clearly the hipsters have had an influence here, since the fresher move is to personalize one’s accessories and “imprint” one’s individualism on the world at large. Other news outlets report that this group isn’t

especially interested in owning cars, either. Gen Ys “have responded to economic uncertainty and a challenging professional landscape by embracing a new Off-Roading mentality,” says Cassandra Daily. “(They’re) forging unconventional, alternative, off-road paths to a newly-defined adulthood.” Is “off-roading” the new “living off the grid”? I’ll bet you anything that people who are off-roaders and reject branding loathe being branded

as off-roaders. Being part of a demographic is a drag, isn’t it, Gen Ys? Now you know how people my age feel about being lumped in with shallow Baby Boomers and consumerist yuppies, however fairly. In our day, thousands of executives knew exactly how to market consumer goods to us so we’d buy them. What are their modern equivalents going to do with a generation of individualists whose chief distinctions are that they

dislike brands, want to make quirky things for themselves and don’t wish to be part of a herd? The democratization that, for better or worse, began with the Internet and encourages a constant virtual free-for-all is going to be a serious challenge to marketers. More power to your resistance, Gen Y, and far less power to the thousands of executives flocking to trend schools to figure out how to rope you in. kate@katezimmerman.ca

road safety Lower Lynn to be transformed Childcare, top survey concerns DNV council approves 20-year development plan for dowdy area

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

DEVELOPERS, start your engines. District of North Vancouver council unanimously supported a 20-year plan to bring new housing, retail and office space to the Lower Lynn town centre at its May 27 meeting. The plan includes a mixture of mid-and low-rise apartments and townhouses. The district’s vision includes a projected 120,000 square feet of new retail space, mostly on Mountain Highway, and 50,000 square feet of new office space. The plan has sparked “tremendous excitement” in the development community, according to the district’s general manager of planning, properties and permits Brian Bydwell. District staff have been taking weekly meetings with prospective developers, according to Bydwell, who said a lot of the major sites are “pretty much tied up.” The heart of the neighbourhood is identified as the strip of Mountain Highway between Crown Street and Hunter Street. The two-decade project also includes adding a service lane to Mountain Highway to help manage the increase in traffic. Parking time may also be restricted on Mountain Highway. Development at nearby Seylynn Village coincides with converting Fern Street to a cul-de-sac, shielding the currently busy street from Highway 1 traffic. East Keith Road will be extended to run parallel to the highway, joining up with the Fern Street overpass. “It’ll give us additional queuing capacity for getting onto the highway and ultimately the plan is to facilitate that connection between the east part of the municipality and the west part,” Bydwell said. The Keith Road bridge will also be replaced with a four-lane crossing. QuotingWinstonChurchill,Coun.DougMacKay-Dunncalled council’s approval of the plan, “the end of the beginning.” “Many years ago . . . I commented basically that this area was the armpit of the North Shore,” he commented. “I said some of the housing down there wasn’t even third world, it was fourth world.”

The plan affords the district an opportunity to transform the area, adding quality of life while bringing young families and professionals to the neighbourhood. “I want to see this move forward. I think there’s a pent-up demand for something like this,” he said. The plan includes a new park south of Crown Street as well as an expansion of Marie Place Park. While council’s vote was unanimous, there were ripples of disagreement regarding the nature of development. While district staff could design tree-lined boulevards replete with pressed concrete, those accoutrements could also jack up the housing prices, Coun. Mike Little cautioned, advising planners to go with something “a little more Spartan.” “It is counter-productive when it comes to attracting low-cost market housing to the area,” he said. “It’s going to be tough if it’s too nice.” Little’s comments were met with a mild objection from MacKay-Dunn. “I think that the streetscape is very important for the quality of life,” he said, adding that well-groomed areas generally deal with fewer property crimes. Lower Lynn is a hop away from the 790-unit development in Seylynn, which includes 24, 28, and 32 storey towers. Approved in Dec. 2012, the Seylynn development was the catalyst for bringing growth to Lower Lynn, according to Coun. Alan Nixon. Staff should try to connect Bridgman Park with Seylynn as soon as possible, according to Nixon. The neighbourhood should remain affordable and eclectic, according to Coun. Lisa Muri, who said both traffic and building bulk would be key issues. “The controversy on height will always be an issue,” she said. The area should remain a mix of commercial, light industry and residential, according to Muri. “I look for it continuing to be an affordable place, and I think that’s integral,” she said. The future is fantastic for the community, according to Coun. Roger Bassam. “With mixed emotions I’m looking forward to all the development and change that will come down there. Really not looking forward to all the construction,” he said. Council voted 5-0 in favour of the motion. Mayor Richard Walton did not attend the meeting and Coun. Robin Hicks left the meeting early. Lower Lynn Town Centre is one of four centres in the district marked for growth over the next two decades in the municipality’s official community plan.

NORTH Shore parks have well-maintained play spaces designed to keep kids away from traffic, but the region needs more safe crossings, sidewalks and affordable childcare, according to recent survey findings.

North Shore Neighbourhood House and North Shore Community Resources have released results from the Child and Family Friendliness Survey, which collected data from 100 North Shore service providers and more than 1,700 parents in order to gauge how well the region addresses the needs of families. The research, conducted by a third party from January to March, reviewed issues such as childcare, transportation, health services, housing and recreation. Respondents identified several areas in need of improvement, among them safe crossings, more sidewalks, curb accessibility for strollers and wheelchairs, more programming at outdoor spaces, more covered spaces at public parks, more affordable childcare, more before- and after-school care at school sites, more spaces that offer flexible hours for children under five, safe routes for children to walk to school and safe drop-off and pickup areas. Survey-takers also identified areas where the community is succeeding in being family friendly. For example, respondents feel that parks, fields and other open spaces have well-maintained play spaces, designed to keep children away from traffic. They also think there are many welcoming places where parents of young children can meet each other. The feedback came as no surprise to Lisa Hubbard, NSNH executive director. “We know the issues,” she said. “(The survey) was more to inform people that wouldn’t necessarily be bumping into that stuff all the time.” The results will be presented to community non-profit organizations and all three North Shore municipal councils. Hubbard said the findings can be used as a tool for anyone working with families and children on the North Shore. Despite the identified shortcomings, Hubbard says the North Shore is overall a “very” family friendly community. “The North Shore is very committed to and interested in keeping children and families happy and being able to be active and participate in the three municipalities,” she said.

MANY California sea lions are permanently branded with a hot iron for identification purposes.

Sea lions kill 2,000 fish in 2012-13 runs

From page 3 “Nonetheless, California sea lions maintain a strong presence at the dam and were responsible for half of the adult salmonid predation there this spring.” The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which manages the dam, calculated an expanded sea lion predation estimate of slightly more than 2,000 salmonids killed during the 2012 and 2013 winter/spring runs, less than the high of more than 6,000 salmonids estimated killed during the 2010 run. “Many variables can affect predation so we can’t yet conclude that the sea lion removal program caused the decline in salmonid consumption. But, the decreased consumption of adult salmonids by California sea lions below Bonneville Dam is encouraging,” Gorman says. The NOAA first authorized the states to euthanize California sea lions starting in 2008, but the program was suspended in 2010 as a result of a court order. Prior to the March 2012 authorization, the states had trapped and removed 38 California sea lions under various agency authorizations. Ten were relocated to captivity and 28 were killed. ••• Declining salmon stocks is a troubling issue north of the border, too, but it’s difficult to compare B.C.’s Fraser River to the Columbia. “Both are really important salmon rivers, but the big difference is that the Columbia is full of dams and the Fraser isn’t,” says Dr. Andrew Trites, director of UBC’s Marine Mammal Research Unit. “As the fish come into the Columbia they get stopped by the dam,” he explains. “There are fish ladders to help them get around it but in the confusion, while the fish are trying to figure out what happened to the river, they start to pool up there and the sea lions get them.” See No page 11

No dams, no Fraser feed sites

Does Skin Care Cause CANCER?

From page 10

The waters around the Lower Mainland get some visiting California sea lions in spring and fall, Trites says, but they feed mainly on herring. More common up north are Steller sea lions. They eat salmon, Trites says, along with many other types of fish, but they tend to catch their meals in the outer coastal areas. The most abundant salmon-eating marine mammal found locally is the harbour seal, and its predatory effect on the population of smolts in the Fraser is the subject of ongoing research, Trites says. “In the Strait of Georgia we have right here on our doorstep the world’s highest density of harbour seals,” Trites says, with an estimated 30,000 in the Georgia Strait and another 10,000 in Puget Sound. Still, the Fraser doesn’t have the same feeding frenzy sites that the Columbia does. “Because we don’t have dams, there’s no spot in the system where you’re going to have a bottleneck where fish could accumulate and the mammals could learn to go there to catch them more efficiently.” Trites co-wrote a technical report about predation for the Cohen Commission, which investigated the decline of sockeye salmon in the Fraser River. After nearly three years of research, the federal inquiry identified no smoking gun to explain the decline in sockeye. “The collective best guess is there’s something happening to ocean survival when the young fish go down the river into the ocean, but we’re not sure what it is,” Trites says. In the Fraser, he says, the concern is focused on smolts leaving the river and entering the ocean. Whereas in the Columbia, the emphasis is on ensuring adult fish make it upriver to spawn. Trites says killing sea lions is not a long-term solution. “There’s a perception that it must be effective, but I’ve never seen any study yet to show that the killing of marine mammals to save salmon has ever worked,” he says, adding the tactic does not address the more fundamental issues of why salmon populations are in trouble. “It seems that if you truly are concerned about the survival of salmon then you need to be evaluating all the factors, not just pointing to one and using that as a scapegoat.” Still, Trites says he does understand why some people, especially recreational anglers, might view sea lions as pests. “I don’t think you can meet a single sport fisherman who’s not been reeling in a salmon and then had a seal or sea lion come and take it from them.”

According to numerous sources including www. breastcancerfund.org, there are many cancer causing ingredients, such as parabens being used in modern skincare. People have become concerned aboutwhattheirskinisabsorbing from beauty products. For 20 years Nature’s Creations has been committed to educating consumers on the hazards of toxic synthetic ingredients in skin care products. “It’s very serious, and women are starting to take it seriously” says Suzanne Laurin-Seale of Nature’s Creations Aromatherapy. “The average North American woman exposes herself to over 200 synthetic toxic chemicals a day.”

••• Back home in North Vancouver, Matthews sits in front of his open MacBook Pro and scrolls through photos he took at the Bonneville Dam. “These guys are so cute,” he says, pausing to admire a snapshot of a sea lion, its whiskered face peeking above the water, staring straight at the camera with big black eyes. “Sorry, I took a lot of pictures of sea lions,” Matthews laughs as he clicks through a half dozen images of the same animal. “Spending so many days just watching them in their natural environment and doing what they do, I came to look upon them as pretty incredible creatures.” Matthews says his first Sea Shepherd volunteer experience was life-changing. “I’ve never spent more time sitting around in bushes waiting for something to happen in my life and not been bored at all,” he says. “I wasn’t sitting around fuming about all this stuff that I see wrong. I was actually out trying to do something about it.” He is already looking forward to his next environmental crusade, which may involve a trip to Taiji, Japan, where the Sea Shepherd crews are monitoring the annual dolphin drive hunt. “I can’t think of a bigger issue facing people at this point than the environment,” Matthews says, “and somebody’s got to do something.”

SOLE Girls founder Ashley Wiles motivates her inaugural running club members at a recent five-kilometre fun run capping off their eightweek session. Wiles is offering two upcoming programs intended to empower girls, ages eight-12, to lead happy, healthy and active lives.

SOLE GIRLS SEEKS TO EMPOWER TWEENS

Erin McPhee emcphee@nsnews.com

Flying start

ASHLEY Wiles feels strongly that every girl should have the opportunity to feel good about herself. To make that dream a reality, the 27-year-old life coach, avid runner and a National Coaching Certification Program level 2 athletics coach, recently launched Sole Girls, a social enterprise organization offering a host of programming dedicated to changing the lives of young girls, ages eight-12. Wiles’ goal is to empower her charges and give them the tools to lead happy, healthy and active lives and arm them with the confidence to navigate their teenage years with ease. “My goal is to yes make a profit, but use that profit to give back to the community,” she says. “I believe that strong girls and empowered girls make stronger women and stronger communities. When we give girls the tools to be confident and empowered in themselves, we’re actually giving back to our community and we’re

creating this strong community where all girls respect themselves and they have the confidence to say yes and no and they know what their values are. And for me that’s very important.” What’s also important to Wiles is making physical activity integral to young girls’ lives. “It’s to encourage girls in this age group to be physically active and to create habits that are physically active before they hit the teen years where the drama really starts and they don’t feel good about their bodies,” she says. She launched Sole Girls in April, viewing it as an opportunity to give back. “I was lucky enough to have mentors in my life that were runners,” says Wiles, who started running at age six, becoming a member of the Kilometre Club at her school, Sherwood Park elementary. She has continued to run, inspired by her grandfather, who at age 75, ran his first marathon, as well as many other runners in her family — her parents and aunt and uncle included. Throughout her life and the many different stages and situations she’s found herSee Programs page 15

self in, from post-secondary studies to international travel, and the different stresses she’s faced and the challenge of sticking to a healthy diet and exercise routine, she found that running helped her stay balanced. “Running was something that I could just have, put on my shoes and go,” she says. Sole Girls offers a variety of programming, mainly eightweek running clubs. The next, a summer running club, starts July 2 and girls will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. until Aug. 25 at West Vancouver’s The Yoga Practice. “It’s an opportunity for girls to come and express themselves, be part of a healthy environment, be active during the summer and maybe learn some new skills,” says Wiles. In addition to training to run a five-kilometre fun run at the summer’s end, the girls will engage in yoga and creative running games, and spend time discussing a variety of topics, including nutrition, body image, self-esteem, the media, and health and wellness. Wiles is also presenting a nutrition and health empowerment weekend workshop, June 15-16, entitled Healthy is Hip, also held at The Yoga Practice, for eight hours over the course of the two days. “We’re going to talk about food and ways that girls can use food to make it fun,” she says, for example, how to make healthy, delicious smoothies for after school snacks. The weekend will also incorporate lots of physical activity. A holistic nutritionist will be on hand as part of the program, speaking to Sole Girls’ mentorship model. Community members, both high school students and adults leading healthy lives, are encouraged to sign up as Sole Girls volunteers, serving as practice partners as well as to share their expertise in a variety of health fields. While Sole Girls is a fee-forservice program, Wiles is committed to ensuring all girls are able to participate, regardless of their financial circumstances.

KYT Foundation founder envisions a healthier future for her Nepali village

■ Walk for Water: The Kamala Yonzon Tahrayli Foundation will hold a fundraising all-ages walk from Panorama Park to Quarry Rock and back in Deep Cove, Saturday, June 15, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. After the walk there will be a picnic with traditional Nepali food. Minimum donation: $20. Funds raised will go towards helping to bring water to a remote village in Nepal. Info: kytfoundation.org.

Erin McPhee emcphee@nsnews.com

FROM an early age, Kamala Yonzon’s father instilled in her the importance of staying positive in the face of adversity.

She recalls his firm-held belief that one should have a vision and walk towards it, believing in the power of positive thinking, rather than letting doubt prevail. Yonzon, who grew up in Healay Chaubas, a small village in a remote region of Nepal, moved to North Vancouver, her current home, in 1988 at age 22. However, she has never forgotten her village nor her late father’s message and he would be proud as she remains committed to their shared vision of offering support to their community. Yonzon recently founded the Kamala Yonzon Tahrayli Foundation and it has two goals: first to bring water to Healay Chaubas, as residents must currently trek an hour to the nearest clean source; and second, to establish a hospital to serve the village. To raise funds in support of both projects, Yonzon, with the support of others involved in the foundation, is presenting the inaugural Walk for Water, from Deep Cove’s Panorama Park to See Deep page 17


Sunday, June 9, 2013 - North Shore News - A17

LIVE

Deep Cove walk June 15 From page 16 Quarry Rock and back, Saturday, June 15. The participants’ journey, about an hour each way, is intended to simulate the trek the people in Healay Chaubas make to get water, sometimes four-five times a day. The foundation needs $15,000 to establish a water source in the village. “It’s a slow process,” says Yonzon, adding, “It’s taking time. In addition to next weekend’s Walk for Water, the foundation is continuing to conduct other fundraising initiatives, including craft sales. Once water is brought to the village, the foundation plans to get going with the hospital project, to be built on land donated by Yonzon’s family. “They are waiting for us,” she says. Medical care does not currently exist in Healay Chaubas (the nearest hospital is in Kathmandu, a day-long journey by foot and bus rides, weatherpermitting). The length of time required to get medical attention continues to have dire consequences on some community members, ranging from serious infections to miscarriages,

both of which Yonzon has witnessed firsthand, and both of which could be preventable with earlier intervention, adding further urgency to her quest. The planned hospital will not only work to save lives, but will offer education and social support to residents. Yonzon is grateful for the continued assistance of her family, friends and neighbours who continue to help with the foundation and its initiatives. “That helps big time,” she says, adding it means a lot to her and helps her stay positive. As the Kamala Yonzon Tahrayli Foundation is still relatively new, Yonzon hopes the upcoming Walk for Water helps raise awareness of its existence and inspires more local residents to get involved. “I’m hoping this walk will maybe spread more word out and let people know, the North Shore especially,” says Yonzon. “In North Van we have lots of water and. . . . we just want to let others know what it’s like not having water.” For more information on the Walk for Water or to get involved with the Kamala Yonzon Tahrayli Foundation, visit kytfoundation.org.

Getting a job takes hard work! Getting a job takes hard work as Courtney has found out this past year. She completed the Child Care Aide program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in the Spring of 2012 with the intention of getting a permanent job in that !eld. After going through the intake process at Employment ConneXions, Courtney met with her Vocational Counsellor once a week to complete job search activities such as: updating her resume, developing cover letters and creating a job search portfolio. With the assistance of her Counsellor she completed online courses for WHMIS and FoodSafe. She scoured both online sites and newspapers to !nd suitable postings. Courtney kept her Counsellor informed of her job search efforts through e-mails and phone calls and requested meetings when she needed assistance with her applications. Courtney also applied for positions recommended to her by her Counsellor, dropping off resumes or sending in online applications with assistance. When she received a call to come in for an interview, she practiced her skills with her Counsellor and followed up with a card of thanks or a phone call. Courtney debriefed

Summer through the eyes of our Self Advocates

A Magni!cent Partnership

ConneXions is fortunate to have the support of many community partners. Each and every relationship we have with the community is paramount in helping us reach our vision. This vision is a community where all people with disabilities have equal opportunities to lead active, ful!lling lives and are recognized as contributing members of the community. It is through these partnerships that we are able to “make opportunities happen.” One partnership that we are privileged to have is with The Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation.The Foundation’s mandate

is to better the lives of children through health and education. Djavad Mowafaghian attributes his passion for giving to his mother’s in"uence. She taught him at a young age to be kind and generous and that he truly is. His generosity has provided funding to build over 25 schools in his birth country of Iran. More recently The Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation has supported many initiatives in the Lower Mainland. BC Children’s Hospital, The University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and many other charities in the Vancouver

area are extremely fortunate to have been recipients of the foundations generosity. As a result, Djavad Mowafaghian’s philanthropic contributions have been formally recognized by the Province of British Columbia on more then one occasion. The individuals, families and employees of ConneXions would like to thank Djavad Mowafaghian and his foundation; we are extremely grateful not only for the !nancial support but for recognizing the value of our work and the positive impact it has on our community.

TASTE

It’s time to consider Time estate winery

I never thought I’d use Harry McWatters’ name in the same sentence as Jim Croce’s, but there I was, walking home from the official launch of the B.C. pioneer’s new winery, Time Estate Winery, quietly humming “Time in a Bottle” to myself.

It’s exactly 20 years to the day since McWatters undertook at the time the largest vineyard planting in Canada, on Black Sage Road. Not only that, he opted to plant Bordeaux varieties, which most gave little hope of being able to ripen on a regular basis. As he says, more than a few people thought he was nuts, including Gray Monk owner George Heiss who said (in timeless fashion): “When you get stuck with those grapes give me a call.” Not only are the two still friends to this day but guess who now buys a portion of those same grapes for Gray Monk’s top-tier red blends? After he sold Sumac Ridge to Vincor in 2000 (later bought by Constellation Brands), the much-celebrated vineyard was jointly owned by Constellation and McWatters. More recently it was physically divided when the partnership

Notable Potables Tim Pawsey

was dissolved. Constellation has the rights to the Black Sage name, so McWatters elected to call his portion “Sundial” in anticipation of Time Estate Winery. This week, McWatters was in a jovial mood as he explained his plans for the estate and new building (to be finished in late 2014): “Hopefully, this is the last time I’ll be doing this,” he said. But as he notes, wine is all about time and place. And few people in the history of B.C.’s modern industry have a grasp as good as his when it comes to understanding just what might be the right time and place. Time Estate Winery is designed to be as unobtrusive in its natural setting as possible. In addition to its functional

features it will include four luxury suites as well as a reception area and commercial kitchen for events catering. Needless to say, having made the first vintage elsewhere in 2011, McWatters already has Time in the bottle (and for sale). He poured the three wines that make up his production: a red Meritage, a white Meritage and a barrel aged Chardonnay. The facility will also produce the existing line of McWatters’ collection wines. It wouldn’t surprise me to see an “icon” wine at some point, however. Meritage is close to McWatters’ heart, as his was the first Canadian winery to adopt the California-developed name created in response to Bordeaux’s legendary blends. White Meritage 2012 Superb with Brix Restaurant’s spot prawn ceviche, with grapefruit, ginger and grapefruit. It’s good to see this former Sumac flagship return (79 per cent Sauvignon Blanc, 21 per cent Semillon: melon, citrus and tropical notes) $25 (91 points). Chardonnay 2011 Vanilla and oak on top, creamy, with a soft, buttery palate with tropical, melon and citrus hints, toasty notes and moderate acidity ($27.99, 89 points).

Red Meritage 2011 Black and red fruit on top with some perfumed notes before a plush blackberry and cassis-toned palate (60 per cent Merlot, 25 per cent Cab Sauv, 15 per cent Cab Franc). Allow to open in the glass or hold ($29.99, 90 points). Belly’s Budget Best The View Red Shoe White 2012 Fun, easy sipping, off-dry, lower alcohol blend of Optima (66 per cent), Riesling (20 per cent) and Gewurz (14 per cent). Delivers citrus and floral aromas followed by a lychee and stonefruit palate. Lightlyspiced Asian plates; grilled chicken and Waldorf salad ($15.50, 88 points). Wines available at VQA stores.

Local advocates tackle issue of elder abuse WORLD Elder Abuse Awareness Day happens each year on June 15.

It’s the one day in the year when the whole world voices its opposition to the abuse and suffering that is experienced by some of our older generation. It’s estimated that somewhere between four and 10 per cent of seniors in Canada experience some form of abuse. I think those numbers are low but regardless it is clear that elder abuse is an issue that needs to be taken seriously. Last month, the West Vancouver Seniors Action Table got a head start on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day by hosting a workshop on the topic at the West Vancouver Seniors’ Activity Centre. I’m a member of the local Community Response Network and we assisted with the organization of the event. Let’s take a peek behind the scenes to see how this event was put together. Elder abuse is a difficult topic. Our challenge here was to address the issue and not send everyone home depressed. Our theme was helping seniors to live in dignity. We decided to hold a free workshop for the public on a weekday afternoon at a central and accessible location in West Vancouver. Our target audience was

older, vulnerable seniors and we wanted to be in and out in two hours or less. We framed the workshop around three questions. What is elder abuse and what can you do about it? How do you recognize and avoid scams? Who can you call if you are concerned about someone you know? Financial abuse is thought to be the most common form of elder abuse. How can you tell if you are dealing with a con artist? In 2010 a group of seniors from the John Braithwaite Community Centre produced a video for seniors titled, How to Spot a Wolf. Iara Gilbertson, who appears in the video, was on hand to take questions from the See Familiarize page 26

audience about scams. Melanie Parkinson is a member of the Community Response Network and an adult protection consultant and designated responder co-ordinator — North Shore with Vancouver Coastal Health. I asked her what a person should do if they believe a senior is subject to abuse, neglect or self-neglect. “Different situations require different interventions,” she said. “It is important that the adult have an opportunity to tell their story in a safe way, free of judgment. If it is appropriate to have a conversation with the adult about their experience and their wishes, that is the best place to start. If the adult is able to follow up on their own, you can provide them contact numbers for local community resources. If you are concerned that the adult may not be able to seek support and assistance on their own, you may contact the local health authority to report abuse, neglect or selfneglect of a vulnerable adult.” For the North Shore, contact Parkinson at 604-904-6200, ext. 4124 to discuss your concerns or make a report. Finally, Corp. Jag Johal, of the West Vancouver Police Department, engaged with the audience about some of the more recent and typical scams in the community. Elder financial abuse is tough to combat, in part because it often goes unreported. Many elderly victims are often too confused, fearful or embarrassed by the crime to report it. Johal’s message was that we can all protect ourselves and our loved ones from financial elder abuse by becoming familiar with the most common scams and reporting suspicious activities to the police. Looking at the research it’s clear that what makes people vulnerable to predators and elder abuse is loneliness, feeling under appreciated and lack of social support. By staying active and involved with people and activities, you are less likely to find yourself in an abusive relationship.

PETS PETS FOR ADOPTION

Plan ahead for summer road trips Canine Connection Joan Klucha

I sure am looking forward to summer this year. Last year, if you recall, was a spectacular one. The long stretch of hot dry weather went well into the middle of October. And if you haven’t checked, the predicted longrange weather forecast is similar, if not better, for this year’s summer. I say road trips, here we come! When I vacation locally I bring all my dogs along. Sometimes my horses come too, but that’s another story. Given the fact that I have a multi-dog family, I spend a bit of time before I leave preparing my adventure to ensure that my chosen locations are dog friendly. Not only that, I question the degree to which dogs are allowed. For example, is there a limit to the number of dogs a camper or vacationer can bring? I also want to know if the dogs have to be leashed 24/7 and whether there are trails accessible to hike with dogs. If so, do they need to be leashed at all times?

Many B.C. parks are dog friendly, but not all of them allow dogs on the beachfront, in swimming areas designated for people, or in any buildings at the campsite and require the dogs be on leash at all times. There may even be a restriction to the length of leash. So it is really worth taking the time to prepare to prevent problems or even being turned away because you have a dog with you. A really super link by BC Parks is env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/ recreation/dog-friendly. On this page there is a list of parks that are dog friendly and ones that are not. The ones that are friendly have specific trails, off-leash areas and designated swimming areas for dogs. If you take the time to look you will notice a symbol of a dog-on-leash with detailed guidelines on canine etiquette for that particular park. It is a super website with detailed information about dogs for every park and I suggest everyone take the time to review it before you head out the door. Living on the North Shore, most people are accustomed to wildlife such as bears … or so you’d think. If you are not, then remember that when you get into the interior of B.C. and hike into the backcountry you are more than likely going to encounter some pretty amazing wildlife. Although it is a breathtaking sight to see a pack of wolves playing in tall grass or a cougar lounging on a high rock or even a bear at the edge of a stream, allowing a dog to be off leash in these areas could

spell disaster. For humans it is best to view large predators at a safe distance with binoculars. Taking your dog along with you on a backcountry hike isn’t recommended by BC Parks, but if you do choose to take your leashed dog into the backcountry, make sure you are fully prepared and experienced to deal with predatory wildlife. Remember that you are in their backyard! Even animals that are not predatory, such as elk, deer or moose, can be dangerous when threatened by a dog. Allowing your dog to chase

these animals is just not cool. We really are blessed to live in such a beautiful province and when the weather is good it is a spectacular place to vacation. Whether you pack up for a day trip, long weekend or spend a few weeks in the Shuswap region you won’t be disappointed with the scenery. Enjoying it with your canine companions can make the experience that much better when you prepare ahead of time.

RESTAURANT TRACES ITS CULINARY ROOTS BACK TO MUGHAL EMPERORS

Karim’s menu still fit for a king Greg Middleton Contributing Writer

DELHI: Karim’s, in the heart of Old Delhi, is probably the bestknown restaurant in the Indian capital — a must-eat stop for those visiting the city.

Old Delhi: The walled city of Delhi, India, was founded as Shahjahanabad by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in 1639. It remained the capital of the Mughals until the end of the Mughal dynasty. It was once filled with mansions of nobles and members of the royal court, along with elegant mosques and gardens. Today, despite having become extremely crowded and dilapidated it still serves as the symbolic heart of metropolitan Delhi. — Wikipedia

It has been serving fine Mughal cuisine since 1913 (making 2013 its 100th anniversary), but its culinary roots go back to the kitchens of Shah Jahan (1628-1658), regarded as among the greatest of India’s Mughal emperors, who built Delhi’s Red Fort as his palace. “Our forefathers enjoyed the prestigious employment in the royal kitchens,” Haji Noormuddin, Karim’s current owner, says. His family were chefs in the Red Fort until the Mughal dynasty ended in 1857 when the British exiled the last emperor, Bahadar Shah Zafar. Its noble patron gone, the family looked for new ways to ply its trade. Haji Karimuddin, the founder of Karim’s, simply took emperor’s cuisine out of the palace kitchen and set up a few doors down from what is still the biggest mosque in India, holding as many as 25,000 people for Friday prayers — not a bad marketing move. “Our great grandfather, a chef par excellence, was the pioneer to bring the royal food to the common man,” Noormuddin says. Mughal cooking came to India via the goat-herders of central Asia, who imported their Muslim religion and meat-based diet into what was primarily vegetarian India in wave after wave of Islamic incursions, culminating with the Mughal invasion of the photo Greg Middleton/Meridian Writers’ Group early 1500s.

COLLINGWOOD’S Marshall Fuller finds a tiny patch of grass for a try in the AA rugby provincial championship final against Rockridge. Fuller scored twice as the Cavaliers earned the title with a tough 20-10 win over their West Vancouver neighbours.

THE Collingwood Cavaliers senior boys’ rugby team won it all last weekend, claiming the provincial AA championship title in an all-West Van final against their longtime rivals from Rockridge.

The sweet win got Collingwood head coach David Speirs thinking about a time not so long ago when all the Cavaliers could do was lose. Every second year the team goes on tour — rugby tours are common for North Shore high school teams — and this year in March the Cavaliers travelled to Australia where they got beaten. Badly. “We went 0-6,” said Speirs. “It’s hard on tour when you’re away for three weeks and you don’t win any games. Tour fatigue can set in.” But in and amongst all that losing, Speirs saw something special happening. Fatigued or not, the players never stopped

fighting for every inch. “Theseguys,eveninthosesituations,alwaysstepped up and played hard — that gave us an indication that it was a good bunch of kids,” he said. “We played really good rugby there but still lost by a few sizeable scores. We just kept saying, ‘don’t worry about it, you’ll be judged by the B.C. championships.’” The verdict is in now. The Cavaliers showed off that resiliency in claiming their second provincial title in three years, coming through with late-game heroics in both the semifinal and final. No. 2-ranked Collingwood actually appeared to be on their way to the bronze medal game in the late stages of their

semifinal against No. 3 St. Michaels University School. Employing a game plan that featured a set of ultrafast runners, SMU ran circles around the Cavaliers for much of the match and held a 24-13 advantage with just 10 minutes left. Needing to change the flow of the game, the Cavs stopped chasing, grabbed the ball and started smashing their way down the field. “When we did kind of pull it together in the last few minutes we kind of got our hands on the ball and we never let it go,” said Speirs. Grade 12 captain Marshall Fuller started the comeback with a try that completed a long possession featuring a lot of hard yards. Taylor Milliken added the convert to make it 24-20. The Cavaliers then appeared on their way to the winning points in the last minute when Connor McRae found some running room and raced toward the goal line but SMU managed to track him down less than a metre from pay dirt. With the lineout going to SMU and the referee checking his watch, the game See Cavs page 33

Cavs and Ravens need late heroics to reach final From page 32

appeared over. “We were kind of going, ‘uh oh, that might be it,’” said Speirs. “We were just kind of hoping for some kind of miracle off the lineout.” They got it. The miracle man was, not surprisingly, Fuller, who sniffed out the ball when SMU failed to grab it off the lineout and pounced for the winning points. “It got dropped in the endzone and he dove from about five feet away and got his hand on the ball to get just enough downward pressure for it to be a try,” said Speirs. “I’m not sure half our players would have known to just dive and get downward pressure on the ball, which he did. His knowledge of the game is so amazing.” Miracle produced, the Cavaliers were headed to the final. Meanwhile, No. 4-ranked Rockridge needed similar heroics to topple No. 1 Brentwood College to complete the West Van semi sweep. Kicker Angus Carroll was spot on all game but his three penalty kicks still left the Ravens trailing 12-9 with about two minutes left. Rockridge finally took the lead on a Mitch Mehlenbacher try and the Ravens held on from there, watching as a long, last-ditch kick to win it for Brentwood missed the mark. “Angus Carroll was having a lights out day — we knew that if we could just keep getting into their half of the field and keep forcing them to take penalties, Angus would keep knocking them over,” said Rockridge head coach Perino Zambon, summing up the plan of attack against Brentwood, the defending champs who had also knocked the Ravens out in the semifinals the past two seasons. “That kept us close enough and finally at the end we put a spurt of a few phases together and Mitchell Mehlenbacher went over in the corner to score.” In Saturday’s final, played in Abbotsford’s Rotary Stadium, Collingwood jumped out to an early 10-0 lead but Rockridge roared back to tie it at 10 early in the second half. With time winding down, however, the Cavaliers once again dug deep into those reserves they stocked way back in March when they were getting their butts kicked in Australia. “We started getting our hands on the ball and we kept it for phase after phase,” said Speirs. Fuller scored his second try of the game to make it 15-10 and then Collingwood went into full smash mode. “We probably kept the ball for 15 or 20 phases, just smashing it up, winning it, smashing it up, winning it. By that time you could see time was running out.” Nick Ludwig capped the match with a long run to make the final 20-10 for Collingwood. “Huge emotion,” Speirs said in describing the scene following the final whistle. “This group of kids, just like Rockridge, they’re so invested in the amount of time they put in. Anything other than gold was going to be a huge disappointment. There was the excitement and joy but there were tears of relief too from a lot of the guys.” Fuller, with a pair of tries in both the semifinal and final, was an easy selection as the team’s representative on the Commissioner’s 15 tournament all-star team. “He has a knack for the goal line like no one I’ve ever coached,” said Speirs, going on to describe the try that is shown in the photograph that accompanies this article. “He’s diving in, his body position is perfect and the four Rockridge guys are up higher. You can see that he will go through them for sure — that’s just that knack for the goal line. He’s just got it.” Fuller’s game-winning try involved more heady play as he took a No. 8 pickup — roughly equivalent to a quarterback sneak in football — through a mess of bodies into the endzone. “There was very little room. . . . It was just, ‘there’s the goal line, I’m going to dive low, it’s hard to tackle me, I’m going to reach with the ball and get it down,’” said Speirs. “It was maybe a foot or six inches inside the line, it was that tight, but the referee gave it instantly. He’s a physical beast but he’s a really smart rugby player too. It’s hard to beat that.” The Cavaliers also got their usual stellar play from McRae and Milliken, the other two points of their power trio along with Fuller. Speirs also credited Alex Cheung for playing a great final after missing the previous two games with a concussion, as well as Justin Balogh, an undersized inside centre who was thrust into action when another player was injured. “Collingwood is a strong, balanced team — they’ve got three really outstanding players and then the rest of their players are also very good,” said Zambon, summing up an opponent he knows very well. The Ravens lost only three matches this season and all of them were to Collingwood. “They’re very good at holding onto the ball for long periods of time. They can hold it for 10, See Fierce page 34

Highlanders finish fifth at AAA rugby finals THE West Vancouver Highlanders led a trio of North Shore teams with a fifth place finish at the AAA rugby provincial championships held last weekend in Abbotsford.

West Van, ranked seventh coming in, defeated No. 10 G.P. Vanier 39-7 to open the tournament before falling 275 to the eventual champions from Shawnigan Lake. They bounced back with a pair of wins over Robert Bateman and Kelowna to lock up fifth spot with a 3-1 record. West Van’s Johnny Franklin was named to the Commissioner’s 15 tournament all-star team. Argyle finished 10th at the tournament, dropping their final match 36-10 to Semiahmoo to end with a 2-2 record. Carson Graham rounded out the North Shore contingent with a 13th-place showing, defeating Cowichan in their final game to also end with a 2-2 record. Argyle’s Kevin Labou and Carson’s Acie Moore were named as their teams’ representatives on the Commissioner’s 15 team. — Andy Prest

PHILLIPS, Thomas Randolph LL.B. Jun 02, 1956 - May 30, 2013 Beloved son of Joanne and Randy Phillips passed peacefully at North Shore Hospice on May 30, 2013. Tom will be sadly missed by his sisters Esther (John), and Constance (Mitch), niece, Natalie, nephew, Max, and numerous cousins on Whidbey Island, Vancouver Island, Denman Island and the Lower Mainland. Tom was a kind and gentle soul whose happiest memories were of travel to Africa in his youth. No service. A family gathering will take place in the summer.
