RCMP talk down armed 95-year-old

Man taken to Lions Gate Hospital after two-hour standoff in Upper Lonsdale

Brent Richter

NORTH Vancouver RCMP successfully brought a peaceful end to a tense standoff with an emotionally distraught 95-year-old armed with a handgun Thursday night. Police responded to the 100-block of Carisbrooke Crescent around 6 p.m. “We attended and secured the area and brought in our RCMP negotiator and (Emergency Response Team) and did surveillance with the helicopter and attempted to gain a line of communication with him,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, North Vancouver RCMP spokesman. By 7:45 p.m., the man had surrendered to police without incident. “No shots fired, no injuries to himself or anyone else and he was subsequently taken to Lions Gate Hospital for assessment,” De Jong said. The man was licensed to own the restricted weapon, De Jong said, but RCMP are now reviewing whether he will be allowed to keep his firearms licence. Police can request that anyone hand over their licence but if the owner refuses, police must first get a court order. The RCMP just finished a month-long gun amnesty. While the amnesty is over, police will still take the effort to collect potentially dangerous weapons. “By all means. It’s the same process. Call the North Vancouver RCMP. If you wish to relinquish ownership of your firearm, we will attend your residence and we will pick it up no questions asked,” said De Jong.

WV man retraces his father’s footsteps in invasion of Sicily Anne Watson

TRAVERSING the mountainous roads of Sicily in blistering summer heat might not appeal to everyone, but for an adventurous group of Canadians it’s a chance to retrace history. Wednesday July 10 will mark the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Sicily in 1943 by the 1st Canadian Division, a collection of battalions from across Canada that included the Seaforth Highlanders. The group will retrace the steps of the soldiers who grappled with heat and lack of transport to march inland to Agira. For Rod Hoffmeister of West Vancouver, the journey will be a memorable one. Hoffmeister’s father, Lt.-Col. B.M. Hoffmeister, was commanding officer of the Seaforth Highlanders and led them into Sicily, earning him the Distinguished Service Order while in combat. It would be his first of three, as Hoffmeister became one of See Regimental page 5

IN the frigid waters of the Arctic Ocean, four men in a rowboat are attempting a world first: navigating the Northwest Passage by human power alone in a single season. Lead rower Kevin Vallely and filmmaker Frank Wolf, both of North Vancouver, Irish adventurer Paul Gleeson and compatriot Denis Barnett hope to complete their journey in 75 days. In doing so, the adventurers hope to focus the world’s attention on climate change. “It’s never been done before because it could never graphic supplied have been done before,” said Vallely in the days leading up THE four-man team of the Mainstream Last First expedition plan to row the 3,000-kilometre Northwest Passage, to the expedition’s launch. from Inuvik to Pond Inlet.

What is the significance of your trip? The most important aspect of the trip is that we’re doing something that has never been done before because it could never have been done before. Climate change has made it possible. Through the support of our sponsors, Mainstream Renewable Power, we can convey an incredibly poignant message of climate change directly through the actions of our expedition. What distance will you travel each day (approx)? Good days maybe 100 km. Bad days 0 km. Average probably 40-50 km per day. How many hours per day will the team row? How will you schedule rowing shifts? We will try to row 24 hours a day when we can, rotating shifts of four hours on/off and two hours on/off between the four members of the team.

Mountie says Force wants her out

Jane Seyd

A North Vancouver RCMP officer on leave from the force for posttraumatic stress disorder says the Mounties are trying to bully her out of her position after she launched a lawsuit against them. Const. Karen Katz, 48, who previously worked at the North Vancouver RCMP detachment, and still lives on the North Shore, said she recently received a letter advising her the RCMP intends to dismiss her if she doesn’t return to work. Katz has been on leave from the force since 2009 — first for a shoulder injury, then beginning in 2011 for posttraumatic stress disorder, which she says was caused by a decadeslong environment of sexual harassment in the RCMP. A year ago, Katz launched a lawsuit against the Mounties, alleging she was subjected to degrading and humiliating sexual comments for much of her career, including at the local

detachment. The RCMP has denied those claims, and the case remains in preliminary stages before the courts. Katz said the recent letter threatening to dismiss her amounts to “bullying and intimidation” and amounts to retaliation over her lawsuit. “They deem me a public whistleblower,” she said. “I’ve now breached the code of silence.” But Sgt. Julie Gagnon, spokeswoman for the RCMP, said in an email that’s not why the force is moving to discharge Katz. “The RCMP has a responsibility to the Canadians who pay our salaries . . . to manage our workforce responsibly,” she wrote. “We cannot, in good conscience, continue to pay a full salary indefinitely to any employee — regardless of whether they are involved in a lawsuit against the RCMP — whose health prevents them from performing duties within the RCMP.” Gagnon said before an officer is discharged, the RCMP looks to see if that person can

be accommodated in another role within the force. But, she added, “sometimes a member has a condition that permanently impedes them from performing their duties. . . .” Katz said her doctors have advised her that she can’t discuss returning to work because of her psychological condition. “I’m in treatment and I’m not well enough to begin the process,” she said. In a legal letter to Katz, the RCMP stated that since Katz’s symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder are triggered by any interaction with the RCMP, the force has concluded she is “unable to return to work in the foreseeable future. . . .” Katz blames the force for that, adding nothing has changed within the RCMP that would allow her to return to work. “The culture of the RCMP is still toxic,” she said. “It’s still poisonous. It’s still the boys’ club. They haven’t done anything to change it.” In her lawsuit filed last July, Katz alleged her harassment began during RCMP training in Regina, and continued at her first posting in Prince George, where she was subjected to “offensive,

Regimental diary updated online From page 1 the most well respected Canadian officers of the Second World War. “It’s very significant for me,” said Hoffmeister, who was named by the Seaforth Highlanders as honorary lieutenant-colonel, the same rank his father held 70 years ago. “This is really going to bring it home.” The invasion of Sicily was part of Operation Husky, a plan by allied forces to take back the Mediterranean. Unfortunately for the Canadians,

the invasion would be that much more difficult after the ship carrying their transport was torpedoed by German U-boats. “Everything was either carried by foot or by donkey or mule,” said Hoffmeister. The march begins July 10 at the beaches of Pachino, where the division landed, then winds its way through central Sicily. It will end at Agira on July 30 with a ceremony for the 484 Canadian soldiersburiedthereattheCanadianWarCemetery. The group will be keeping a daily regimental diary that can be viewed at

humiliating and demeaning comments” from other officers. Katzsaidshetransferredtothe North Vancouver detachment in 1995 hoping the situation would improve, but when she arrived, she noticed derogatory comments about her had already been scribbled on a bulletin board at the detachment. Her long blond hair earned her the nickname “Lady Godiva” with one superior, Katz alleged. She was also accused by one superior officer in North Vancouver of “having a morbid, unhealthy infatuation with outlaw bikers” and of being “mentally unbalanced.” In a statement of defence, the Attorney General of Canada and the B.C. Minister of Justice have denied the allegations against the RCMP. Former police spokeswoman Cpl. Catherine Galliford has also filed a lawsuit alleging she was harassed throughout her career with the RCMP including her time in North Vancouver.

Shocking T

AKE a deep breath. Your hydro rates are going up. That was the word from Energy Minister Bill Bennett this week, citing years of infrastructure investment coupled with relatively small increases brought on by his government in previous years. But the increase in rates is a small annoyance when compared with the jolt we got from some of the other revelations about Hydro this week — pun fully intended. An internal audit of the Crown corporation found it was completely unprepared to deal with a natural disaster. Portions of the province would be left in the cold and dark for months if they were to be hit by a catastrophic event like the earthquake our scientists always remind us is coming. Perhaps the impending price hike

wouldn’t be so bad if we knew it was going to pay for a system that will be there for us when we need it. Or perhaps it would go down easier if we knew ongoing infrastructure projects like Northwest Transmission Line were going to be completed reasonably close to its $404-million budget, and not the $736 million it is projected at this week. This while government is ready to open its wallet for the Site C dam project, which is projected at $8 billion, and we still don’t know the real long-term cost of the dozens of independent power projects Hydro has signed contracts with. So, raise the rates if it will keep the juice flowing, but BC Hydro badly needs to get its house in order if we don’t want to go back to burning whale oil for warmth and light.

Weston suggests Howe Sound study

Open Letter to Ruth Simons and the Future of Howe Sound Society Congratulations on this Canada Day, Ruth and all those who participated in a huge flotilla that would have stopped the Spanish Armada head-on if it had attempted to invade Howe Sound yesterday. More than 150 boats! The public participation was magnificent, as magnificent as your vision to preserve Howe Sound for future generations. I was impressed by the number of people involved, the variety of ages represented, and the happy spirit demonstrated by all those involved. On this Canada Day, I consider it appropriate to pledge to you my commitment to work with those who would like to preserve Howe Sound, in the following way. I would like to explore with your group the possibility of providing at least some initial

assessment of creating that type of broad-scale plan that Mayor Brenda Broughton and other people have discussed. From the many discussions I had, it is obvious that a variety of factors should be included in any such ambitious plan: the splendour of the natural surroundings; the biodiversity; the resurgence of natural life in Howe Sound; the contribution the surroundings make to tourism revenues to come; the intensity of impact of any industrial activity; the range of effect of such activity; the longevity of the industrial activity; the opportunity to restore land and surroundings damaged by the activity; the number of jobs created, the relevance of the products created by the activity; and the monetary value of such activity. This is a wide variety of factors, and I’m sure there are more. Here is a goal to which we could all aspire: Aug.

5 is a deadline by which applicants must approach the Finance Committee of the House of Commons in order for that committee to consider any applications that might find their way into the 2014 federal budget. While there are other ways to get good ideas into the budget, I suggest we work together to see if the Finance Committee will accept an application for funding of a preliminary study of the Howe Sound Area and the wide variety of environmental and economic factors and activities. This may be the beginning of a long journey but one well worth travelling together. Again, congratulations on the marvellous outpouring of public support demonstrated yesterday. I’m honoured just to participate. John Weston, M.P., West VancouverSunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country

Cycling’s squeaky wheel getting too much grease

Dear Editor: Why is it the bike advocates get most of the attention? No one ever mentions their percentage-wise use within the community. In the last five years, we have seen a huge growth in population in the City and District of North Vancouver; it’s been five years of construction traffic problems, some within the same block at the same time. Right now we have disruptions on 13th at Lonsdale, 13th at St. George’s, 15th at Lonsdale, both east and west, 17th at Lonsdale, and the bottom of the West Keith Road hill, to name only a few. Roads have been narrowed to support the expensive bike lanes we do have. Separated bike lanes for Marine, Esplanade, Chesterfield? Prove to me first we have a need, the existing


bike lanes are usually empty, and having lived in North Vancouver most of my life I do not agree it’s a warranted price or need. I do not agree that “people don’t ride—because they are afraid”. People don’t ride because they are travelling to work, to shop, to visit. They don’t want to ride. Cycling is not always an appealing choice. I suppose as a resident of the city, we get what we deserve: poor turnout at elections, representatives in office who are pushing an agenda not liked by residents. I do not remember voting for the increase in bike lanes, road calming, and reduced lane width. Decisions based on “studies” made elsewhere are not always the answer. Lynn Gordon, North Vancouver

Running with antelope, sweating with pigs

EVERYBODY knows that armpits are what separate humans from the rest of the animal world, but it would be nice if for once I could go to a wedding without dripping a river of sweat down the bride’s “something blue” during the big receiving line hug.

I suppose I should be more grateful to our shared great, great, great (x100,000) grandfather who figured out how us slow homo sapiens could catch, kill, and eat a superfast antelope, thereby gaining the nutritional value found in meat that helped us grow these big brains that allow us to do things like wield tools, build shelter from the harsh elements and finish moderately hard Sudoku. But really? Do I have to be sweatier than a hockey glove in fourth overtime whenever the thermometer nudges past 18 C? Or whenever I walk up three flights of stairs. Or, these summer days at least, whenever I bend down to pick up anything weighing more than a slightly chilled bottle of beer? The answer, it seems, is yes. Harvard biological sciences professor Daniel Lieberman

Laugh All You Want Andy Prest

recently released interesting new research detailing one of the great moments in human evolution. Humans, Dr. Lieberman says, are the best long distance runners in the world, and the No. 1 reason is because we are good at sweating. We’re covered in sweat glands and, aside from Robin Williams, relatively little hair, meaning we’re able to keep cool enough to avoid dying of heat exhaustion even while running very long distances on scorching hot days. Other mammals can’t do that — they perspire through their tongues and so if they’re running at a fast rate they are too busy galloping to get to the important business of panting. Dog owners take note: According to Lieberman, if you take your dog out for a brisk

This latest heat wave confirmed that I am one sweaty dude. Last weekend I had the pleasure of taking part in an old-school wedding that involved a stag party on Friday night followed by the ceremony Saturday afternoon. We managed to get the groom to the ceremony with no black eyes and all of his teeth, but in the hot sun of Stanley Park we were all suffering for our sins. In my lovely light summer suit jacket I was still drenched in sweat and smelling like a welldressed brewery. And that was before my toddler son started running around, sprinting off down

With the heat wave infiltrating his crib, there he was soaked through with sweat, glistening as if he was sleeping inside a lake. Sorry buddy, the genetics say it’ll be a life of soggy shirt collars for you too. I didn’t even know that little two-year-olds could sweat like that. I just remember my Grade 7 gym teacher telling us one day that we were stinky little varmints and needed to shower after class. I guess, in the game of evolution, my boy is gifted. At least I know my family will never go hungry — that’s good gnus for us.

sketchy trails at every opportunity so that I’d have to hunt him down at top speed, terrified that I’d round a corner to find him locked in combat with some goose or hobo. That pattern continued for the next five hours; it’s a good thing there were no antelope around because my boy would have chased them to death six times over. Later that steamy night — the hottest of the year so far I reckoned — the tables turned. Checking on my sleeping boy after we all were partied out, I discovered that he was going to be a sweaty dude just like his old man.

run on a hot day it could drop dead after about 15 minutes. Thanks to our sweat glands, humans don’t have that problem. Apparently I could head to Africa tomorrow afternoon and chase a gnu for a few hours until it keels over. Then I could kill it with some primitive tool like an iPhone 2 or something and eat it right there. With the amount that I already sweat doing non-Africa things, however, I’d probably be floating in a small saltwater lake by the time I was finished chewing my gnu. I should have realized my destiny was to become a sweaty, sweaty man when I was a basketball player back in high school. After years of watching me play, my mom told me she had figured out my signature move: the alley-oop reverse slam dunk. Just kidding, it was wiping the sweat from my eyes with my jersey after every play. Later, as a grad student, I remember briskly walking from my Kitsilano apartment across the Granville Street Bridge to a friend’s party on a warm Vancouver evening. The assembled guests spent the next hour wondering if I’d come down with the consumption. “Can I get you something?” our lovely host asked. “Beer? Wine? Chamois underwear?”

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE is hereby given by the City of North Vancouver, under the provisions of the Local Government Act, that a Public Hearing will be held on MONDAY, JULY 15, 2013 AT 7:00 PM in the Council Chamber, City Hall, 141 West 14th Street, North Vancouver, BC, to receive representations in connection with the following proposed amendment to “Zoning Bylaw, 1995, No. 6700”. ZONING BYLAW 1995, NO. 6700, AMENDMENT BYLAW 2013, NO. 8314 To amend the text of “Zoning Bylaw, 1995, No. 6700” for the following purposes: 1.

Reduce the minimum dwelling unit size for strata and apartment buildings From: 450 square feet per studio 600 square feet per 1-bedroom 750 square feet per 2-bedroom 850 square feet per 3 or more bedrooms To: 400 square feet for all unit types. The per-bedroom dwelling unit sizes were set in 1975, and the proposed change reflects today’s market and changes in affordability, as well as the fact that municipalities do not typically specify per-bedroom minimum unit sizes. Dwelling unit sizes less than the 1975 standards already exist in many of the City Comprehensive Development Zones. This proposed change will normalize dwelling unit sizes in the City such that there is consistency with the existing minimum dwelling unit size for accessory secondary suites.


Permit up to two boarders in all residential dwelling units including multiple unit residential buildings. Currently up to two boarders are permitted within single family homes, except as permitted through a rezoning process. This change is proposed to assist prospective home buyers to obtain financing for their new units, and is in response to public enquiries as to what is permitted within the City’s Zoning Bylaw.


Add a new definition for Lock-Off Unit: “An accessory rental unit forming part of the principle Dwelling Unit accessible through a lockable door, that may contain bedrooms, bathrooms, and a kitchen facility that has direct exterior access.”

Adding the definition does not permit lock-off units in any area of the City. It is a symbolic gesture meant to encourage consideration of this new form of rental housing in multiple unit buildings. Council approval would be required to add one or more Lock-Off Units to any new or existing building, and this approval process would involve a rezoning process and a public consultation process, including a Public Hearing. The three recommended changes arise from a comprehensive review of the Zoning Bylaw to identify ways to encourage housing affordability in the market. The comprehensive review of the Zoning Bylaw ensures it meets the goals and objectives of the community.

Ice, big waves and polar bears all threats

From page 3

“Interestingly, a real passion of mine was to ski to the North Pole. And I’d been trying to figure out a way to do that. We pretty well abandoned the idea because it’s impossible. The season is too short, the ice is too bad.” The four men plan to row in continuous shifts, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Title sponsor Mainstream Renewable Power, which operates wind and solar farms on four continents, picked up the tab for the Arctic Joule, which was constructed and outfitted at a cost of about $100,000. The vessel was built specifically for this expedition by Vancouver Island boat builder Robin Thacker and designed to withstand the harsh elements of the Canadian Arctic. It’s constructed from marine plywood with layers of foam and fiberglass reinforced with Kevlar to potentially withstand encounters with ice. The eight-metre vessel has two small cabins where the team will rest when not rowing. Fully loaded, it weighs about a metric tonne, or 2,000 pounds. “It’s a beast of a boat,” said Vallely. The men will be rowing in dry suits, with neoprene coldwater immersion suits on deck in case of emergency. Also on deck is a four-person emergency raft and emergency beacon. The team plan to connect daily to home base by satellite phone. Even with such precautions, the expedition is not without risk. “There’s lots of ice floating around and all sorts of nastiness that could crush a boat,” Vallely said. “We have to be very cautious about ice moving around us, as well as polar bears and you name it.” One catastrophe the team does not want to face is that which scuttled Canadian Olympian Adam Kreek and his team, who were attempting to row across the Atlantic in April when a rogue wave capsized their boat north of Puerto Rico. “They rolled and they stayed upside down, which would be really, really, really dangerous in Arctic waters, and so we don’t have any interest in doing that,” said Vallely. “They were doing a transition from one crew to the other so their hatch in the stern was open and suddenly they had 2,000 pounds of water pouring in to the boat, flipping it and anchoring it upside down. We’re up in colder conditions and we’re going to be very, very concerned about keeping that hatch door closed at all times.” The team are documenting their journey on their blog and through video footage. On the expedition’s website,, audiences can post messages, expect a reply, and follow the team’s progress on the GPS-enabled Trip Tracker map. These modern-day explorers may be making history but they’re also revisiting it. “It’s high seas adventure with a huge historical component,” says Vallely. “If you think about all the names: Hudson, Baffin, Frobisher, Franklin, Vancouver, Mackenzie, Cartier — all these names were individuals looking for the Northwest Passage who didn’t succeed at finding it, and charted Canada in a sense.” The team is working with scientific research partners at Vancouver Aquarium, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Canadian Rangers. They’ll be collecting data for the Canadian Rangers Ocean Watch program, or CROW. The program measures and monitors environmental changes and provides early warnings of ecosystem shifts in Canada’s Arctic. The crew will use a small device called a CTD to collect

the data. The CTD resembles a white pipe with a cable attached at the top, less than a metre long and weighing about three kilograms. The device measures five key components of Arctic water: conductivity (salt content), depth, temperature, oxygen and chlorophyll. Inuit hunters in four northern communities are using the same equipment to collect similar data for the CROW program. The collected data paints a picture of Arctic water from the surface down to the bottom, said Eric Solomon, Vancouver Aquarium’s director of Arctic programs and a North Vancouver resident. Said Solomon, “Despite how important the Arctic is, there’s not a lot of information of this kind in the areas where they’re going and so every time that thing goes in the water and comes back up again, the data are useful and interesting.” Sixty-seven per cent of Canada’s coastline is Arctic coastline, Solomon said. “That’s longer than the Pacific and Atlantic coastlines combined. “Canada is an Arctic country and there’s still so much we

don’t know about it, and we know it’s changing so fast. It’s one of the reasons the kind of research these guys are collecting is important. While a single snapshot is interesting, what this allows is to continue collecting this kind of data and see how things are changing over time, and we just don’t have those kind of pictures very well right now.” Solomon said the data will be used by policy makers and scientists as well as the aquarium to help audiences better understand the Arctic. Northern communities will also benefit from the research, which is expected to show how changes to Arctic water impact the food chain. While the Mainstream Last First team is racing against the clock to complete their journey before the ice closes in, the world is struggling in its own race to fight against the profound effects that climate change is having on the environment. “We’re in a real race,” said Solomon. “The Arctic is changing faster, almost two times faster than just about anywhere else on earth. And we don’t understand it very well as it currently is let alone how it’s changing. “And these things matter.”

Only two people row at a given time, so we can move continuously. When was the last time an Arctic/North West Passage expedition such as this was conducted and by whom? John Franklin and his crew died trying in the 1845-’47 expedition. Many others died too. Roald Amundsen succeeded at the first traverse between 1903-06, taking three years to do it. The Canadian ice breaker, the St. Roche, housed at the Vancouver Maritime Museum, made the second successful crossing of the passage between 1940-’42. A handful of people have sailed it in recent years (mostly under motor), and a handful of people have kayaked it over several seasons. No one has traversed it solely under human power in one season. No one has come close. Describe the specially commissioned boat? Most ocean rowing boats would have a traditional “V shaped” hull, our hull is much flatter to better cope with ice conditions. The boat has been heavily reinforced for strength with multiple layers of fibreglass and Kevlar and weighs about 1,000 pounds and with supplies and rowers, about double that amount. The aft cabin can house all four rowers if needed and the boat will self-right if it capsizes. The boat, which features two steering systems, has been designed and built by Robin Thacker. What is the approximate window of ‘melted ice’ time in which you will be able to row this summer? Three months maximum. Will you be using satellite images to help navigate through the passage? We will be navigating from satellite images that have been processed by the Canadian Ice Service and then sent to us as maps of the ice


Temperatures in the Arctic are increasing at twice the global rate. Permafrost temperatures hit a record high in 2012. Sea ice has been declining by about 12 per cent per decade. There was 50 per cent less sea ice at the end of the summer of 2012 than was the average from 1979 to 2000. The volume of sea ice (includes estimates of thickness) is down 39 per cent. The decline in sea ice has been faster than all of the most aggressive estimates for sea ice decline. In 1980, the estimated amount of sea ice that was more than five years old was 57 per cent; today it is seven per cent. Source:

NV woman connecting ADHD families Launches not for profit initiative to bring those affected together

Erin McPhee

IT took Klara Sedlacek until she was in her 20s to finally connect the dots.

SUSPENSION TRAINING Columnist Shaun Karp outlines the effective muscle-toning workout. page 14 HEALTH NOTES page 16

Growing up in Brno, Czech Republic, she struggled socially, with her peers, and academically. “My trouble started in kindergarten when I was extremely hyperactive and temperamental,” she says. Due to her behavioural issues, she was labelled a “troublemaker” and a “lazy, careless learner,” early on in life. “These formative years are formative because they leave a profound impact on you and your world,” she says, explaining it took her a long time to let go of those labels. “You grow up with a belief system that’s based on your behaviour, that’s not you, that’s how people label you, how teachers label you, how society labels your behaviours. And then you are (an adult) and still working on these systems. (For) me, that was (the) case,” says the now 33-year-old North Vancouver resident. Sedlacek continued to be plagued by low self-esteem into her teen years, despite the fact she was recognized as an athlete and a scholar. She says she struggled with depression at times. “I was just deep in this dark, dark hole, thinking I was a menace to the world,” she says. Nonetheless, Sedlacek persevered and went on to study molecular biology at Pensacola, Fla.’s University of West Florida and then completed a masters degree in forestry at the University of British Columbia. However, her old struggles continued to bubble up, particularly related to her self-esteem issues, managing her emotions and anxiety, prompting her to seek help from a therapist.

“That helped me to open my eyes,” she says. “That provided the awareness that maybe not everything that I experienced was truly because it was my fault and also, maybe, I’m not what I think I am.” Her therapist helped her finally uncover what had been at the root of her challenges from early childhood, and four years ago helped her diagnose herself as having had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, ADHD is a term used to describe patterns of behaviour (inattentiveness, impulsiveness and hyperactivity included) that appear most often in schoolaged children. Armed with new knowledge, thanks to her therapist Sedlacek finally began to experience positive change in her life, learning how to effectively manage her diagnosis. She has continued to seek out methods of self-help, including emotional freedom technique (EFT), based on research suggesting that emotional trauma contributes to disease. The approach has proven extremely helpful in her own life. “There’s no more anxiety, there’s no more depressive state. I’m just in this state of general happiness that transfers to my work life and also to my personal life,” she says. EFT uses elements of cognitiveandexposuretherapies, combined with acupressure, to reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that are believed to have triggered emotional distress. By reducing or removing the stress, healing can occur. Reaping the benefits through the use of the approach in her own life, Sedlacek decided to become a certified EFT practitioner through EFT Universe ( Two years ago she launched a company, ADHD Kids First ( and coaches children with ADHD and their parents, teaching them the

Give suspension training cables a try

TRX system uses an individual’s body weight to boost muscle tone HAVE you noticed an increased number of people hanging around the gym lately? They might have been utilizing one of the great fitness innovations of the past 10 years: TRX suspension training cables! Very much a backto-basics approach, TRX equipment is primarily a strengthening tool and relies on the user’s own body weight to provide resistance. But TRX cables can be also used to improve balance, endurance and muscular coordination. TRX equipment was introduced to the public in 2005 by ex-Navy Seal and Stanford masters of business administration graduate, Randy Hetrick, who often used salvaged parachute cables to help keep his muscles fit and responsive in remote safe houses. The rest is history. The TRX system boils down to two straps attached at a single overhead point. The straps are adjustable in length and feature small

Personal Best Shaun Karp

handles for grip and balance. At first glance, the apparatus is deceptively simple, but they have a number of potential fitness applications. TRX training is also relatively safe compared to many other forms of resistance training. When properly implemented, TRX programs can be very easy on the joints and can be completed by nearly anyone who is capable of other forms of light exercise. In fact, suspension training can even be used to

gently rehabilitate injuries. Once comfortable with TRX equipment, you will quickly see benefits, which will only increase with frequent practise. While the popularity of TRX training has increased rapidly over the past eight years, much uncertainty remains among the uninitiated. So here are a couple of exercises to help you get started: ■ Suspended Pushup This one is as simple as it sounds. Stand, feet together, with one TRX handle in each hand. Lean forward to about a 45-degree angle, keeping your back straight and assuming the start position for a regular pushup. Now, perform a pushup that lowers your body beyond 45-degrees before returning again. Perform up to 12 repetitions if possible. ■ Lateral Split Squat To perform this lower body exercise, first adjust the TRX cables so they nearly touch the floor and place a foot through one TRX handle. Now, keeping constant pressure on the cable by extending that leg to one

side, slowly lower yourself on your standing leg until it approaches a 90-degree angle and return again to the start. Perform eight to 12 repetitions and repeat on the other side. This exercise requires a combination of strength and balance so start slowly and progress at your own pace. Interested in beginning a TRX routine? Consider booking an educational session with a personal trainer who is enthusiastic about suspension training. These days, such trainers are becoming pretty easy to find.

OPEN LETTER TO MAYOR AND LYNN VALLEY RESIDENTS We are extremely tired of being lied to and manipulated by politicians who think they can arbitrarily dictate to us. The Mayor, Richard Walton, set up these monthly fireside chats at the library (an easy way to appear to be listening to his constituents). However, now that there is a major issue (highrises and density in Lynn Valley) that he knows is most unpopular with the residents he appears to be most reluctant to face the people he works for. Subsequent to a request for the date of the next “fireside chat” in July and set for July 10,2013 at 3:00 pm; Here are the restrictions the Mayor has placed on this meeting: moving the venue, asking for names of people coming, asking for number of people attending, limiting the number of people attending, posting no Notices, and wanting to know what they are going to say ahead of time. There is lots of room for more people at the Library. We propose the meeting be held at the Lynn Valley Library 3pm July 10th as originally requested. Let him prove that he has the courage to listen and respond to his constituents. No excuses will be accepted. His office has already confirmed that he is available at that time. Will he show up? Will you as a resident of Lynn Valley show up? See you there! Joan Birchall NEWS photo Cindy Goodman

Rewarding experiences

REPRESENTATIVES of the North Shore Schizophrenia Society have had a busy few weeks. At right, the society’s executive director Cheryl Olney (left) and board president Cheryl Zipper present Dr. Rosalynd Holdsworth with the society’s inaugural Responsiveness to Families Award. The award was created to honour the contribution of service providers who recognize the crucial role families play in ensuring people with serious mental illnesses receive the treatment and care they require. Holdsworth, a psychiatrist who works at Lions Gate Hospital and in private practice, was nominated by several families. At lower right, participants in the society’s 22nd annual Walk the World For Schizophrenia take off from John Lawson Park June 23. Info:


Eczema I suffer from eczema. My skin is itchy, red and I often use steroid creams to ease the discomfort. Can Naturopathic Medicine help?

NEWS photo Mike Wakefield

Summer can be an itchy time for eczema sufferers and creams don’t get to the root cause of the problem. For most, eczema stems from the digestive system. Improperly digested foods cause inflammation in the digestive system and triggers an immune response. These are termed food sensitivities. Inflammatory cells enter the blood stream and in this case result in inflammation on the skin. Poor food choices, chronic stress and change of climate can all worsen eczema. Marine Drive Naturopathic Clinic offers successful treatments for eczema and other skin conditions. A simple blood test examines 88 foods and measures your body’s reaction to these foods. Identifying the triggers, along with the right supplements, will leave your skin healthy in no time.

Family barbecue set for July 13 From page 13 health care system. Interested in further giving back to the ADHD community, three months ago Sedlacek launched a not for profit community-based initiative — with the help of her husband Stan — entitled Vancouver ADDventures. The endeavour offers free programming designed to give families the tools and support to better manage their diagnosis and provide an opportunity for them to connect with one another as well as their peers. As part of Vancouver ADDventures, Sedlacek is offering free workshops for parents of children with ADHD. The last was held yesterday and the next, this time for children with ADHD, is set for Aug 17 at John Braithwaite Community Centre. She’s given it a superhero theme and hopes it proves inspiring, empowering and fun for participants, giving them an opportunity to learn about EFT and help them tackle the new school year with confidence. “I will also help them explore their internal abilities and powers,” she says. Vancouver ADDventures offers a monthly outdoor recreation-themed event for families on the second Saturday of every month. The next, a Funky Family Barbecue, is being held Saturday, July 13 at 3 p.m. at North Vancouver’s Princess Park. Sedlacek is also launching a biweekly peersupport group for parents of children with ADHD starting July 24. Meetings will be held the first and third Wednesdays of the month thereafter at 7 p.m. at John Braithwaite Community Centre. A small donation will be requested to cover the cost of the room rental.

“We’re going to be practising the technique and we’re going to support each other and they’re going to further learn how to help their child,” she says. Sedlacek plans to continue growing Vancouver ADDventures, for example she hopes to eventually add a nature camp to her offerings. She’s also in the process of co-creating an advocacy group, composed of local ADHD professionals (so far another ADHD coach and tutor have both come on board) with an interest in advocating for children with ADHD in the school system as well as at the provincial level to help B.C. families affected by the diagnosis get access to needed funding to help cover related costs. She’s looking for additional ADHD professionals to join them.

“It’s really amazing how there truly is power of community.” — Klara Sedlacek Founder of ADHD Kids First and Vancouver ADDventures Having just launched her business as well as her community initiative, Sedlacek has been overwhelmed by the degree of support and interest she’s received. “It’s really amazing how there truly is power of community,” she says.

Questions to ask before investing

Money Matters Mike Grenby

IF you have a financial advisor, he or she has a professional responsibility to provide advice suitable for your personal and financial situation. However, even though the investment and related professions (like accounting) can punish members who break the rules, and courts can order damages, you should still take an “investor beware” approach. In one recent case, the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada concluded an advisor “made unsuitable investment recommendations for a married couple aged 60 and 57 respectively in January, 2007. They wanted to be semi-retired in a few years.” However, within three months of transferring their investments to the advisor, the accounts changed from a balanced portfolio to one consisting entirely of speculative high-risk securities. “The [advisor’s] investment strategy and trading pattern

were not suitable for [the couple] as they had limited investment knowledge, a low risk tolerance, little understanding of the risks involved, low income and could not afford to sustain any significant decline in the value of their investments as they were nearing retirement,” ruled IIROC. “They invested $290,000 with the [advisor] which represented their entire retirement and life savings, and as a result of the decline in the accounts, neither of them will be able to retire as planned.” The problem is we all want to make money, and so tend to focus on only the profit possibilities — even if an advisor does point out the risks. Before you make any major investment choices, ask for answers in writing to the following questions: n Is 100 per cent of my/our investment guaranteed and if so, by whom? How long would it take to get back the money? n Is the yield/increase in value of the investment guaranteed and if so, by whom? n What factors could contribute to the growth of the investment? n What factors could contribute to a decline in the value of the investment? n How does this investment match my/our personal and financial situation and objectives?

Consider B.C. seniors in natural disaster planning THE weather outside can be, well, frightful. Albertans living in proximity to the Bow River can attest to that. Natural disasters are not new but weather extremes are causing more and more natural disasters all around the world and Canada is no exception. And, they are a growing threat to human populations, particularly to vulnerable populations such as the elderly. Research shows that people older than 60 are far more likely to be hurt or killed in a disaster. Of course, not all seniors are vulnerable and in fact across North America seniors are in the forefront of disaster planning specifically because of their life experience. We know that seniors who live alone or who have few contacts are the least informed about impending emergencies. Once a disaster strikes, reduced mobility, dependence on caregivers and medications, unfamiliarity with emergency procedures, and even an unwillingness to leave pets or belongings behind can contribute to keeping seniors in their homes when it’s safer to evacuate. Following a crisis, seniors may be reluctant to seek help because of the stigmas of asking for help or because they feel that others are more in need of those services. Coping with disasters requires preparation. People with well-thought-out

emergency plans respond better to disaster situations than those without. The North Shore Emergency Management Office is an inter-municipal agency charged with providing emergency management services for the three North Shore municipalities. I spoke recently, by telephone, with Dorit Mason, the director of the office. I asked her what seniors could do to prepare for an emergency. She had three suggestions. Seniors should make sure they have enough spare medications on hand to last at least seven days. Next, Mason recommends seniors establish a safety net or personal support network of family, friends, relatives and neighbours who could assist at a moment’s notice. Finally, Mason recommends seniors have a grab and go kit, which is designed to be readily available in the event of having to leave your premises quickly. For a list of what to include in the kit, visit the North Shore Emergency Management Office’s website,, and click on “Preparedness” then “Emergency Kits and Supplies.” As I was researching this

topic it became clear that minimizing the disaster vulnerability of the elderly requires a solid understanding of the specific needs and traits of the elderly population and identification of the risk factors that lead to their vulnerability. A report from the American Society of Civil Engineers makes the point that “effective disaster policies and programs will specifically target elderly populations, establish strong connections between the elderly and available resources and evaluate the efforts to ensure that vulnerabilities are being modified.” In 2010, there were an estimated 677,770 seniors living in British Columbia. Almost half of all seniors in B.C. have a disability and approximately onethird of them have mobility challenges. If those numbers don’t send a shiver down the spine of those responsible for disaster planning in this province I don’t know what will. Clearly, given those statistics, we need to put seniors front and centre when it comes to our disaster planning. I concluded my conversation with Mason by asking whether the North Shore Emergency Management Office has any literature to help seniors better prepare themselves for a disaster in our community. Not at this time was her response, however she recognized it as a need and something that will be addressed. Tom Carney is the executive director of the Lionsview Seniors’ Planning Society. Ideas for future columns are welcome. Contact him at 604-985-3852 or send an email to lions_view@

Wine industry legend is remembered

WHEN the French (and others) talk about terroir they’re generally referring to geography, soil type, grapes and the human element.

Wine, after all (above all) is very much about people. It’s a fact of which I’m constantly reminded, especially when a legend in the business passes away. Last week, the wine world said goodbye to Peter Lehmann, known affectionately, but also with good reason, as “The Baron of the Barossa.” I met him only once, in Vancouver a few Notable Potables years ago, on what turned out to be a farewell tour. But his clever wit and down-to-earth Tim Pawsey manner left me with a lasting impression. At the time, I said of Lehmann and his wife: “They’re salt of the earth people, absolutely charming and engaging, who made a point of talking to every single person who attended the Vancouver dinner.” Lehmann’s contribution to his community is legendary, particularly in the way in which he always stood up for the little guy. When growers’ livelihoods were being threatened (in the 1970s) in the face of a grape glut, even though he himself could barely afford to stay in business, he always took their grapes on just a handshake. The business not only survived but thrived, so much so that it became a target for takeovers. Lehmann fought them off for many years, until successfully negotiating a friendly deal with the Swiss-owned Hess Family Estates that would again protect the growers who depended on him. In his honour, I’m kicking off this week’s “Belly’s Best” picks with a couple of wines that capture Lehmann’s spirit, integrity and penchant for over-delivering. ■ Peter Lehmann Weighbridge Unoaked Chardonnay 2011 (south Australia) The name is a nod to those early days when Lehmann would weigh in his growers’ grapes. This is an easy drinking summer sipper for Chardonnay lovers that lets the fruit shine brightly through. It features stonefruit and a touch of citrus with just enough mouthfeel to keep it interesting. Good value at BCLS $12.99 (88 points). ■ Peter Lehmann Portrait Series Shiraz 2010 (Barossa) Lifted plummy and black fruit notes, with a broad, juicy but not extracted palate; nicely structured with firm but balanced tannins, streaks of juicy damson and a definite peppery finish. Crush black peppercorns over some New York strip or rib-eye, and raise a glass to The Man (BCLS $22.99, 91 points). ••• Belly’s Budget Best ■ Quails Gate Gamay Rosé 2012 There’s no time like the present to drink rosé, especially when it’s made in an assertive but not overtly fruit-driven style. This wine is from Gamay grapes planted specifically with rosé in mind. Twenty-four-hour skin contact yields a medium salmon colour. It has a fruit-forward entry with rhubarb and apple notes before a

This is one of B.C.’s best rosé values, and is wonderfully food friendly (BCLS $15.99, 89 points). ■ Nk’Mip Pinot Blanc 2011 It’s hard to believe there was a time when there was more Pinot Blanc planted in B.C. than Chardonnay. What a shame so much was pulled out. This pick has lifted tropical notes on top, followed by zesty citrus and mineral notes on the palate before a clean finish. Think grilled chicken with Waldorf salad, or white spring salmon (BCLS $16.99, 89 points).

North island B&B a haven for storytellers Joanne Sasvari

Contributing Writer

MASSET, B.C.— Margaret Atwood slept here. Douglas Coupland, did, too. So did Pierre Trudeau. And, of course, the poet Susan Musgrave, who just happens to own the place, and might end up catching your dinner for you. Tiny and remote as it is, Copper Beech Guest House is a haven for the storytellers among us, be they poets, novelists, essayists or just those who enjoy a good yarn. Of course, the best story of all might just be the one about the house itself, and all the people who’ve lived and stayed in it. Copper Beech Guest House is a bed-and-breakfast in the fishing town of Masset on Haida Gwaii, an archipelago off the coast of British Columbia. When it was built in 1914, though, the islands were known as the Queen Charlottes, and the house was erected for a cannery manager at George Point, on the north coast, just a stone’s throw from the tip of Alaska. The cannery closed in 1921, and the house was placed on a log raft and floated through storm-tossed Dixon Entrance to a rustic location in Masset Sound. Eleven years later, it was on the move again, hauled by a pair of oxen through Masset Inlet to its current location near the government docks in the town of Masset. Its owners set about transforming it into the most unusual building in town, with chic plywood panelling, a convenient in-house well and a windmill for electricity. It remained virtually unchanged for the next four decades. By the time Toronto antiques dealer David Phillips bought it in 1971, though, that well was a hazard and the house needed serious work. He upgraded the plumbing and electricity, added a room or two, and started renting out accommodation at $1 a night, offering a simple

Margaret, who snuggled in the romantic Harbour Master’s Keep; meanwhile Musgrave, who moved to Haida Gwaii

in the early 1970s, rented The Secret’s room upstairs, where Douglas Coupland would later hole up to finish his book Generation A. Over the years, Musgrave and Phillips became close friends, and in 2010, Phillips passed the inn on to her. Since then, she’s updated the linens, hired hospitable caretakers and improved the menu — breakfast now features hearty local fare and guests can also expect dinner, usually a seafood feast of Dungeness crab, oysters, halibut or salmon. The inn provides a convenient base for visiting First Nations art galleries in Masset, hiking up nearby Tow Hill or beachcombing along Graham Island’s sandy shores.

SO summer is here. We may have a few days of cooler temperatures and rain here and there, but we are officially in the summer months. With the summer months we also get, you got it — sunshine and hot temperatures. Why am I stating the obvious you ask? Because it seems like there are some people who still don’t understand that it is not OK to leave your dog in the car on a hot summer day. It’s more than just not OK; it is irresponsible, careless and plain old ignorant. I write about this subject each summer at least three times because some people are still not getting it and dogs are suffering needlessly. Just last week a friend called me in a panic. She was about to break the windows of a car — parked in the grocery store parking lot — with a black dog inside that was clearly distressed. It was close to 35 C outside,

there was a three-inch gap in the two open windows and she had been standing beside the car for more than 20 minutes watching the dog to ensure its well-being. I told her to contact the local animal control where she reported the car with the licence plate and the time and date of the incident. I also suggested she contact the local police before she broke into the car to save this dog’s life. Unfortunately we hear about this sort of thing every summer — more than once I’m afraid. Yet there seems to be a select few really dumb people out there who just don’t understand that a dog can die, very quickly, when left in a car in the hot sun. Within 15 minutes the interior of a car can reach 45 C (110 F) when exterior temperatures are 35 C (95 F). As human beings we can barely breathe when we are exposed to 45 C temperatures for more than five minutes. Yet we somehow expect dogs to sit in a car for that length of time or longer. Some folks seem to forget that dogs do not have the mental capacity to understand what is happening to their bodies as they begin to heat up, or rather cook, from the inside out. This lack of understanding ends up causing even more stress, which adds to the increase in their body temperature. Imagine for a moment being covered in plastic wrap from the top of your head to your ankles. Just your hands

and feet are uncovered and your nose and mouth so you can breathe. Now imagine covering your plasticwrapped body with tight fitting wool pants, a shirt and a toque. Now imagine sitting in a car, parked in the full sun, temperature hovering around 30 C, with the windows open a couple of inches — for five minutes, or maybe 15 minutes. Could you bear to stand 30 minutes without knowing when someone was going to come and let you out? Just the thought of this is unbearable, right? Now you might have an idea of what it’s like to be a dog in that situation. We have all heard or maybe even made these excuses before: “I was only going to be five minutes but I got sidetracked,” or “It was busy at the checkout,” or “I met a friend and we started chatting,” etc. These words are nothing more than lazy excuses. The message is simple. If it’s hot out, don’t bring your dog on errands. If you are out with

your dog and have gone for a walk or hike and decide to stop and run an errand on the way home, don’t! Spend the extra time and gas to bring your dog home where it can remain safe and cool in the comfort of your home. Then go to the store, bank, coffee shop, etc., without your dog. This is simple, common sense to me and I am sure many others. The good news in all of this is that there are more and more canine guardian angels willing to risk their own safety to save a dog in distress. Maybe if we all begin to stand together and show some support for those who are willing to take risks in situations where a dog’s well-being is at stake, we might begin to convey the message to those who are short a few common sense brain cells.

A tale of two Dukes

Watt kicking it big time while rookie Palmer faces “retirement”

Andy Prest

A pair of North Vancouver football players on very similar life paths finally went spinning off in different directions this past month, punctuated by events surrounding the CFL regular season opener between Hamilton and Toronto last week.

Scan this page with the Layar app to see video of Spencer Watt breaking down his unique catch-kick combination as well as Bo Palmer scoring a historic touchdown for SFU.

Both Spencer Watt and Bo Palmer starred for head coach Jim Schuman’s Windsor Dukes in high school and both played for Simon Fraser University before getting drafted into the Canadian Football League. Watt, a receiver, went in the third round of the 2010 draft photo Toronto Argonauts to the Argonauts while Palmer, a running back, went in the NORTH Vancouver native Spencer Watt kicks a convert for the Toronto Argonauts in their home opener against fifth round to the Tiger-Cats Hamilton. Normally a receiver, Watt was forced into the kicking game after starter Swayze Waters got hurt. in 2012. The two were slated to reunite on the field in yards — but he had no faith in my leg, so we went for ‘Oh yeah, Swayze’s not going to kick the ball. It’s me.’” Toronto’s home opener June 28 but only one of them it on third down.” Watt took a simple one-step approach on the The Argos, in fact, did end up calling on Watt on made it onto the Rogers Centre turf. That would be Watt, and the fourth-year pro not only suited up, he the next play but it was to score six points rather than convert and knocked it through. It wasn’t the most just three. The speedy receiver ran a corner route and beautiful kick ever, but it went in. stole the show. “We actually were practicing a little bit the past With the Argos trailing 34-25 in the third quarter, Ray found him a couple of yards into the end zone. Watt hauled in a 50-yard pass to put the Boatmen in When he saw the coverage the Tiger-Cats were in, couple of weeks trying to get my footing down,” said Watt. “I (always) thought I could kick but I never scoring position. Two plays later, however, the drive Watt knew he could beat his man to the corner. “I just figured that Rick being Ricky, he would see actually figured I’d be doing it on a pro level.” remained stalled on the 20-yard line. Normally in The Argos then scored again on their next that situation a team would take the field goal but it and throw it,” he said. “I just ran as fast as I could the Argos lost Swayze Waters, their only kicker, to once I saw it in the air. I actually lost the ball in the possession to take a 39-34 lead that survived some injury on the opening kickoff of the second half. The lights — there’s a little split second where I kind of tense moments down the stretch to stand up as the look surprised . . . I kind of hesitated when I couldn’t emergency kicker was none other Mr. Spencer Watt. “(Head coach) Scott Milanovich looked at me, we see the ball and then readjusted once I saw it.” See Hip page 29 There was still, however, the matter of made eye contact and I thought he was going to let me kick the field goal,” Watt said in an entertaining the extra point. “I scored the touchdown, all the hoointerview posted on the Argos’ website following the game. “I wanted to kick it, I think it was like 25 or 30 rah-rah. I looked back and then was like,

SPENCER Watt hauls in a touchdown pass. The multi-talented Windsor secondary grad kicked the convert for his own TD, helping the Argos to a big win.

final score. Watching all the drama unfold from his current home in North Burnaby was Palmer, a talented young runner who expected to be taking part in the action, not catching it on TSN. Palmer, however, is in the very odd situation of being a “retired” football player without having played a single game as a pro. “I just decided to retire 43 years early, you know,” Palmer said with a laugh when contacted by the North Shore News, chuckling over a question about bridge tournaments and early-bird specials. In actual fact, the retirement is more of a professional loophole that will allow the TigerCats to keep Palmer’s player rights while he spends a year recovering from surgery that will keep him out for the entire season. After getting drafted in 2012 Palmer played his final year at SFU where he began experiencing some leg injuries. He played through them and showed up for Hamilton’s rookie camp this spring looking to earn a spot on the club. But the pain persisted and, before main camp started, an MRI revealed a torn labrum in his left hip as the cause of all the problems. Though he could no longer play, the Ti-Cats kept Palmer around for the duration of training camp so that he could meet all the team personnel, learn the playbook and soak up the atmosphere of pro football. Then when camp broke and final cuts were made, Hamilton listed the rookie as “retired.” While on the surface it doesn’t make much sense, Palmer said that the move actually is a commitment from the team that they want him back when he’s ready. “They could have just cut me, and I was

Houck drafted, Jones traded as hockey hotstove heats up North Vancouver’s Jackson Houck earned his ticket to Alberta as he was taken in the fourth round of last weekend’s NHL draft, 94th overall by the Edmonton Oilers. The right winger played for the WHL’s Vancouver Giants the past two years, earning team MVP honours following the 2012-13 season after leading the team in scoring with 23 goals and 34 assists for 57 points in 69 games. Houck was also named the team’s most improved player — in his rookie WHL season he notched 20 points in 53 games. “Couldn’t be happier to be (a part) of the Edmonton Oilers organization!” Jackson tweeted after the selection was announced. “Can’t wait for my first pro camp.” Before joining the Vancouver Giants, Houck played for the North Shore Winter Club and then suited up for the Northwest Giants of the B.C. Major Midget League. Also joining the Alberta exodus was North Vancouver’s David Jones who was traded from the Colorado Avalanche to the Calgary Flames June 27. The 28-year-old right winger was dealt

really worried that that was going to happen too when I found out I was going to need surgery,” said Palmer. “I’m very happy that they didn’t. . . . They’ve made me feel very comfortable that I will remain a Tiger-Cat post-surgery and into the rehab.” Watching from the couch, however, is still tough to take even though Palmer can see the path back to the team. “It feels strange — I got to know a lot of those guys throughout the month that I was there for training camp so it’s kind of interesting watching the team play when you can’t be there,” he said. “It’s definitely not the way I’d hoped to (start my career) but in the big scheme of things it’s really a good thing. I can kind of compare it to a redshirt year in college — it gives me a chance to fully recover rather than trying to play my way through the season at 60 or 70 per cent. It really gives me a chance to fully recover and start it the way I had always imagined.” Palmer is slated to undergo surgery some time in the next month and after that he’ll have his sights set on being on the field wearing yellow and black for next season’s opener. “That is the No. 1 goal right there,” he said. “I’m quite confident that I’ll recover from the surgery and be able to really pursue that.” ••• Watt and the Argos came back down to earth this week, losing to the Lions 24-16 Thursday night in BC Place. It was a quiet homecoming for Watt as the ball didn’t come his way much and he managed just two catches for 20 yards in the defensive struggle. The Argos will be back in action next Thursday when they host the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

along with defenceman Shane O’Brien with the Avalanche getting left winger Alex Tanguay and defenceman Cory Sarich in return. Jones took a winding path to the NHL after being drafted in the ninth round in 2003 by the Avalanche. He broke out in the 201011 season with 27 goals and 45 points in 77 games, following that up with another 20goal season in 2011-12. Last year, however, was a struggle as he managed just three goals and nine points with a -11 rating in 33 games during the lockout-shortened season. With the change in scenery he’ll hope to recapture the touch that saw him put together back-to-back 20-goal seasons. “I just had a tough year,” he told the Calgary Herald. “Just try and forget about it. I’m not going to make any excuses. I just wasn’t playing very well. I just couldn’t really get things going.” Flames general manager Jay Feaster certainly likes the skills the six-foot-two power forward is bringing with him. “With Jones, we get a guy who is an up and down winger,” he said. “He’s a big body, he protects the puck well. We like the fact he drives to the net. He’s willing to go and play in the dirty areas. He’s a right shot, a penalty killer.” — with files from Postmedia News
