Shuttered school to be sold Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

THE North Vancouver school board has voted to sell the shuttered Ridgeway Annex to property developer Anthem for roughly $5.1 million — the first of what could be several school sales in the years ahead. The decision passed with a 4-2 vote this week. While the majority on the school board agreed selling the land was a tough but necessary decision, there was spirited opposition on the philosophical grounds that the land should remain public. Trustee Susan Skinner led the charge to stop the sale, saying selling Ridgeway Annex would be set a precedent. “I don’t feel we have enough information on community needs for today and the future,” she said. Skinner said the mandate of the school district has expanded to include other communityneeds,andsuggested surveying other relevant public service agencies to gauge their current and future requirements.

Family fleeced by ticket scammers

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

A Craigslist scammer has left at least one North Vancouver teenager empty handed after successfully pawning off phony tickets for One Direction’s July 27 concert at Rogers Arena. After exchanging emails, North Vancouver mother Shawna Baker met with the seller at Pacific Centre mall in the hopes of scoring tickets on behalf of her teenage daughter. “Her wall is full of their pictures and she’s got a big stand-up

poster,” Baker said. The asking price of $650 for two tickets seemed steep, but Baker’s daughter sold her Taylor Swift tickets in the hopes of raising enough cash to catch the English quintet’s pop stylings live and in person. The vendor, a teenage girl with long black hair, told Baker the money from the ticket sale was going toward a family trip

to Honduras. Baker compared the tickets with passes from other shows. She noted a bar code, sponsorship information, and a disclaimer. “She seemed very genuine and sweet, and I said to my husband right after we left, ‘They’re too young to be scammers,’” Baker said. She took the tickets home and eventually discovered the subterfuge after reading a Province article about event codes on fraudulent tickets. “I had to look at them three times just to make sure,” she

Teen seller arrested From page 1 said. “Sure enough, the event code was the same (as the one) the other girl had identified.” She also noted the receipt carried a 2013 purchase date, despite the concert being soldout since 2012. While the situation isn’t quite as heart wrenching as One Direction’s ballad “I Wish,” it’s nonetheless disappointing, Baker said. “She sold her Taylor Swift tickets to buy these ones instead, so she’s kind of lost out on two concerts,” Baker said. “She hasn’t cried, though.” Vancouver Police recently arrested a 16-year-old for selling fake One Direction tickets. “From what I got from the description, it sounds the same,” Baker said. Baker’sdaughterisplanning to keep the counterfeit tickets as memorabilia, but still hoping to make it to the show. “I’ve entered her in a contest on The Beat,” Baker said. “I haven’t decided myself if we’re going to fork up more money for her to go.” The fleecing will likely keep Baker from buying on Craigslist again, she said. “It just baffles me. Someone else must have printed the tickets. I don’t think they would be sophisticated enough to operate that kind of ring.”

CADE Baker may have to make do with her cardboard cutout of One Direction band member Niall Horan after discovering the concert tickets she and her mother bought for $650 on Craigslist were fakes.

The club is reducing public play, but will continue to allow public play on Mondays. Another article July 19 on the closure of the Capilano Pet Hospital incorrectly stated that Associate Veterinary Clinics has bought and shut down 50 vet clinics across the country. It should have stated the company owns and operates 49 clinics. Aside from the Capilano Pet Hospital, the company has only shut down one other clinic.

VIEWPOINT Published by North Shore News a division of LMP Publication Limited Partnership, 100-126 East 15th Street, North Vancouver, B.C. V7L 2P9. Doug Foot, publisher. Canadian publications mail sales product agreement No. 40010186.

A bridge too far C

N Rail’s plan to cut the staff who operate the Second Narrows rail lift bridge and replace them with a system of cameras and remote control by the end of this year is troubling. The company claims it won’t affect operations or safety, but the study they used to conclude that hasn’t been made public. The timing of the revelation couldn’t be worse as Canadians are still processing the devastation in LacMegantic caused by a rail accident. Many people are now questioning the largely secretive nature of rail safety regulations. CN’s system will still have a number of failsafes designed to ensure a train never goes off the tracks and a tanker ship never plows into the bridge. But as anyone who’s had to deal with the technology knows, cameras break,

transmission feeds drop, and computers crash. A human has always been on site at the rail bridge so far. This isn’t just a concern for the tankers filled to the brim with crude oil. Hundreds of recreational boaters traverse the Second Narrows on their trips through the Burrard Inlet. No one appears to be asking them about the change either. It’s worth noting the irony of Port Metro Vancouver complaining about a unilateral decision being made and lack of consultation. The port has a history of controversial decisions in which detailed studies on safety, noise and pollution are rarely divulged to their residential neighbours. But in this case, if those in charge at the port aren’t yet satisfied this is a safe way to run a rail bridge, neither are we.

Housing squabble a sad statement

Dear Editor: On July 15 I attended a very sad City of North Vancouver council meeting. One of the items on the agenda was a motion related to the awarding of the affordable housing space in the Onni project at 13th and Lonsdale. At earlier public hearings representatives of several non-profit organizations, including the YWCA, supported the project because of their interest in the community amenity: affordable units for their clients. My Own Space, an organization devoted to the housing needs of developmentally challenged adolescents, fielded the largest number of advocates, and apparently expected to be rewarded with the

affordable units as a result. Staff, however, assured the public that there would be a public process to choose the beneficiaries. When the motion calling for expressions of interest came up to the full council four councillors voted for a public process, and three argued for an immediate award to the parent advocates. Why should there be this kind of conflict in an affluent community in an affluent province in an affluent country, where housing is supposed to be a human right? Is it because of federal and provincial indifference to housing needs? One councillor thinks so. He referred to the awarding of affordable units as the municipality “doing the province’s work for

it.” Presumably he’s read “Housing Vulnerable Populations on the North Shore,” the most recent report of The North Shore Homelessness Task Force. That report mentions wait lists of two to ten years for 446 City of North Vancouver applicants for below-market housing: single parent families, youth, low-income seniors, people with mental health problems, addictions and people with disabilities. What are we hearing from our provincial and federal representatives, Naomi Yamamoto and Andrew Saxton, about what they are doing to address these needs? Donna Stewart North Vancouver

Residential power users to subsidize industrial customers

Dear Editor: We can say thank you to our provincial government for our hydro rates going up. It was our provincial government which forced BC Hydro into money-losing long-term contracts with private power producers, even though BC Hydro’s own facilities were under-utilized. It was our provincial government which forced BC Hydro into a highly unpopular and expensive (rumored to cost $1 billion) smart meter program. It is our provincial government which is forcing BC Hydro into the biggest money loser of them all, Site C. BC Hydro’s own figures show that Site C’s power will cost upward of 10 cents per kilowatt hour and industrial users currently pay less than 4 cents per kwh. What is more, the cost of Site C power crucially depends on the interest BC Hydro will have to pay to service the $8 billion in debt accrued to finance Site

C. Should interest rates rise, Site C power will cost much more than 10 cents per kwh. So no matter how one looks at it, Site C will be a huge money loser that could push BC Hydro one step closer to bankruptcy — unless of course, residential users pay much higher rates to subsidize industrial users. Site C is also completely unnecessary since the natural gas liquefaction plants could generate their own power using gas turbines at a cost of around 7 cents per kwh. It is indeed shocking that there is no public outcry denouncing the planned flooding of one of the most scenic valleys in our beautiful province, destroying thousands of acres of the most fertile farmland, and, in the process, driving up our residential power rates to subsidize large industrial users.

The rise of tablets not for the squinty eyed

THAT’S it — I’m over. I know I’ve made this proclamation before, to zero fanfare. But some light summer reading has reinforced my belief that my generation is efficiently and strategically being phased out. This is more than the usual burden shouldered by my group, which disingenuously refers to itself as “middle-aged.” Most of us have always understood that, after 40, we’d experience random and humiliating aches and pains, a brisk, public slide down the sexual attractiveness scale, and a disturbing increase in mailed brochures from funeral homes. In other words, we’re starting to slowly circle the drain. Now we’re also faced with the news that personal computer sales are in steep decline worldwide, falling between 11 and 14 per cent in the first quarter of this year, compared to the same period last year. Experts suggest that PCs might soon be elbowed out of the way by tablets, just as the late Steve Jobs, Apple’s lead troublemaker, predicted. “So what?” you say?

Going Coastal

Kate Zimmerman Here’s the problem, Junior — tablets are far too small for people who require bifocals for reading and writing. Skeptical? I paid an innocent visit to my Internet bank account the other day to pay a bill, and was impertinently asked to fill out an online questionnaire about whether I’m a tablet user. “No,” I answered firmly, almost destroying the “N” and “O” keys — not that my murderous impulses will do any good. I expect to receive my first unsolicited estate planning advice from RBC shortly. What possible societal use can there be for people like me if we can’t be sold gadgets and related gear that must be constantly updated and replaced? There are only so many calls for sage elders and

wizened storytellers, and soon those, too, will be preferable in the form of an app. Obviously, the unspoken plan of the techno-dweebs who now dominate our culture is to deport me and my bitter, squinting posse to remote mountain caves — the kind Al Qaida favours. There, we’ll be expected to spend our days quaintly trying to recall the precise wording of Motown hits. At night, we’ll have to hunt for wild creatures to supplement the provided supply of quinoa, and, since we’re too visually impaired to properly operate weapons, kill the critters with our shaking hands. Evidently, there’s no turning back on this trend. England’s Mail Online triumphantly reported this week that two PhD students from the University of Lancaster have created “Ubi Displays” that are capable of turning any object into a tablet computer. “The technology uses a projector, a webcam and a PC to create interactive multi-touch displays anywhere and on anything,” declared the Mail in the same tone of unquestioning delight that it will use to inform the world that the royal baby’s umbilical cord stump finally fell off. As usual, nobody ever

asks why being able to project a tablet computer on a wall is a positive innovation. The news story simply shows a picture of one of the inventors checking the temperature displayed on his front door as he leaves his house. Let the bells ring out. I have enough trouble getting my husband, Stanley to set down his iPhone when we’re dining at a restaurant, without having him watch the soy sauce bottle for the latest stats on who listened to his podcast, or read the NAZDAQ off his paper napkin. I should never have thrown that Loonie into that well and wished for my family to read more. Hello, magical wish granter — I meant actual books. As these stupid gadgets gain ground, those who

don’t rely on them are literally becoming obsolete. The Telegraph online reported recently that an unemployed 58-year-old British man had tried to sell himself on eBay. Steve Sewell had experience as a labourer, bike mechanic, toilet paper tester and even an IT technician — perhaps working at the latter two jobs simultaneously, as I’ve always suspected was the norm. Despite Sewell’s starting the price at 99 pence, and tossing a little old-manstyle humour into his post — “some wear to moving parts, surface finish worn” — he was apparently suspected of being so undesirable that he didn’t attract a solitary bidder. And this was a tech guy, of sorts! What a ruthless world. It cannot be a

coincidence that at the same time as Limey scientists are arranging to turn everything into tablets to please impatient tech junkies, a British firm is developing a rocket engine that can bolt somebody into space in just 15 minutes. Reaction Engines’ Synergetic AirBreathing Rocket Engine, or SABRE, will travel up to five times the speed of sound. It may be fitted to existing aircraft, says the Mail Online, once again entirely unworried about why. The UK government will fund the project. Nope, there’s nothing remotely suspicious there. I predict the imposition of a worldwide lottery that selects PC-users to fill the first million seats of one-way flights to the moon. Just see if it ain’t so. kate@katezimmerman.ca

Students are top priority From page 1

But her motion only found one other supporter in trustee Barry Forward. Forward, who oversaw the process to determine the future of the closed schools, said the process had been good, but that it had not gone far enough. “We have to look long term and we have to look holistic and I don’t see that right now.” But those who voted for the sale argued that it was the most prudent thing to do given the district’s financial obligations. Money raised from the sale will go to pay down a $7.2-million debt. The board borrowed the money in the early 2000s to fund the renovations on Sutherland secondary and Westview elementary, on the condition that the debt be paid by Dec. 31, 2015 through the future sale of surplus assets. Secretary treasurer Georgia Allison said the district ran the risk of missing the debt repayment deadline and being forced by the province into a payback schedule if it did not sell Ridgeway Annex. “The funds would come directly out of the classroom because that’s the only place it could come from – the operating budget,” she said. “It would be a significant impact. If we had to pay for it over a two-year period, we would be looking at staff reductions of 36 teachers.” The school district doesn’t know what the form the development on the site will take as Anthem has presented

several configurations ranging from single-family homes to townhouses. But in order for the price tag to make sense, it would take at least nine single family homes, according to staff. Trustee Mike McGraw was sympathetic to the keep-itpublic sentiment, but decided after “much soul searching” that selling the land to Anthem is the only realistic option. “At the end of the day, it’s really up to who comes to me to present me with an offer. That’s the difficulty that we’re in,” he said. Board chairwoman Franci Stratton noted Ridgeway Annex’s neighbours were looking for a resolution about the future of the property. She said those neighbours will be able to voice any concerns about the future development through a rezoning process at the City of North Vancouver. Trustee Christie Sacré recused herself from the discussion as she lives directly across from the school but made a general statement on the sale of schools, reminding the board of its number one job. “I believe we all as trustees are open to working with different community partners to do what is best for our community with regards to the properties, but we are school trustees, not municipal councillors. Our job is to protect the interest of our students as our first priority and maintaining unused buildings at approximately $30,000 per year, per site on average, is not helping them,” she said.

Runner warns of wire snare trap on trail Anne Watson awatson@nsnews.com

A trail runner is warning others to keep an eye out after becoming ensnared on a Grouse Mountain trail Tuesday. Chris Beveridge was out for her regular run on the BCMC Trail shortly before 2 p.m. when she tripped and found a wire wrapped around her leg. “I was probably only about 10 minutes from the top, so within the last quarter of the BCMC,” said Beveridge. “I just went to avoid some rocks and roots and went in between a couple of trees and I tripped.” Beveridge said she looked down and thought she was caught on some wires,

but when she tried to move forward she fell. She then unwound the wire from her leg and when she looked up, she realized it was tied to the tree. ‘When I started pulling on it, I saw that it was attached to the tree and it went up over 20 feet,” she said. “It was attached very tight.” After coiling the wire at the base of the tree, Beveridge reported it to guest services on Grouse Mountain and the RCMP, who told her to leave the wire behind and they would collect it the next day. “I guess they couldn’t find it because I did go back and remove it the next day,” she said. She took wire cutters with her but when she returned the wire was not where she had left it.

“Someone had moved it, I don’t know for what purpose but it was really hard to see,” said Beveridge. “It’s a very thin wire but it’s got like a black rubber coating on it, very pliable.” Beveridge said she has a bruise on the back of her leg from where the wire caught her. She said she has been running the BCMC Trail for around 14 years and usually runs it about three times a week but has never had this happen before. “I was very shocked,” she said. “To me it wasn’t an accident, it didn’t just happen that someone left it behind there.” Beveridge said that although the BCMC is not as busy as the Grind, she saw three people with dogs that day. “I just want other people to be careful and to keep their eyes open.”

Cell tower opponents to dial up public input Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

WEST Vancouver residents opposed to a trio of cell towers need to make their voices heard, says one district councillor who spoke on the issue at recent council meeting. Rogers has proposed three 36-metre cell towers be erected over a two-kilometre stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway in West Vancouver. The thin, white towers house microwave and radio antennae designed to improve the municipality’s spotty wireless service. Because Industry Canada has the last word in the event of an impasse, West Vancouver’s municipal government is left with few options, but Coun. Michael Lewis said residents who don’t want the towers shouldn’t stay silent. “At the end of the day we have very little control, but that doesn’t mean there is not an opportunity to make change,” he said. “The way the change is going to be made here is basically

by burying the proponent in public input suggesting you don’t want to see this happen. I think you need to talk to your MLAs.” Lewis suggested shorter towers, but the district’s natural beauty makes that challenging, according to Rogers engineer Marc Draper. “Doing smaller towers here would be great if we could,” he said. “The trees in this area are enormous. Some of them are upwards of 100 feet, and that of course will cause severe blockage to our radio signals.” Approximately 17 per cent of West Vancouverites don’t have any wireless service, according to Draper. However, the new towers still won’t get everyone online. “If we went ahead . . . it would probably bring the number down to about 10 per cent of the community still being without service, so it doesn’t solve all our problems.” Without the new towers, bandwidth will become scarce in the district and Internet users will see a 25 per cent reduction in data speed, according to Draper. The towers would run along the highway

near Taylor Way and 26th Street, with another tower at 15th Street obliterating the view of homeowner Ivan Marks. “Towers will ruin our beautiful West Vancouver scenery,” Marks said. With the tower about 100 metres from his front door, health effects were a major concern for Marks. His concern was echoed by Coun. Bill Soprovich, who compared the government’s nonchalance regarding radio waves to the inaction that once permitted the use of DDT and asbestos. “Why should we be treated as guinea pigs?” he asked. “If the new pollution is electromagnetic radiation frequencies, then for goodness sake let’s get to the bottom of it.” Radiation caused by cell towers is too insignificant to cause health problems, according to Health Canada. While the cell towers would be built on provincial land, the federal government can approve the project through the Ministry of Industry. “What’s clear to me is the constituents are ill-informed about the proposals,” said West

Vancouver-Sea to Sky MP John Weston. Weston’s wife, Donna, is one of those who wrote to West Vancouver council opposing the project, something Weston said he was informed of “after the fact.” Weston, who lives in Dundarave when parliament is not in session, said West Van residents need to know more about the project. “I’d like to know that there’s minimal effect on health and safety, that the proposed coverage is needed by the citizens of my community,” he said. While the higher elevations of West Vancouver may be at risk of being forced offline, the community should not be obliged to improve its cell service, according to Coun. Craig Cameron. “I don’t believe any community should have a certain level of cellphone coverage shoved down its throat. Ultimately if the residents of a community want to have inferior cellphone coverage because of the possible health effects and the esthetic effects and the rest, they should be able to do so,” Cameron said.

Car-sharing program hits the road

Popular car2go expands fleet into North Vancouver Anne Watson awatson@nsnews.com

THE popular ride share program car2go is receiving positive feedback following its expansion into the City of North Vancouver. Jeremy Dyson, a North Vancouver resident, has been using car2go for a couple of years and is enjoying having them on the North Shore. He said the small cars are a novelty to drive and come in handy for his freelance photography work. “It’s a real coup for North Van to pull this off as the first outer region to pick up car2go,” said Dyson. “I have friends in Burnaby who are certainly jealous.” The company added 50 cars to their already large fleet, with Vancouver currently boasting approximately 400 cars and around

15,000 members. Katie Stafford, communications manager of car2go North America, said there was interest expressed in the program from both the city and commuters, prompting the company to expand onto the North Shore about six months ago. “We had a lot of demand from people of North Vancouver and also people from the City of Vancouver who travel back and forth and in between,” said Stafford. “We thought it would be a great opportunity for us to expand our services beyond just the central core of Vancouver.” The cars are operated through a membership program in which people receive a card that acts as an access key to each car. “It actually gives you access to all 400 cars in Vancouver as well as all of the cars within Canada,” including Calgary and Toronto, said Stafford. There is no membership fee. Instead users pay 38 cents per minute on a plan similar to a pay-as-yougo. Fees are charged through the membership card from the time customers get into the car until they reach their destination. There is no charge for gas or parking.

JEREMY Dyson of North Vancouver says the new ride sharing program offered by car2go provides a sensible, convenient option for local commuters. Scan with Layar for video. Car2go cars can be found either on the street, or through the finder on the company’s website. “The most popular way that people find cars is through the smart phone app,” said Stafford. Both the website and the app will not only show where the closest car is located, but allow a person to reserve the car in advance, setting the car in lockdown for 30 minutes.

The point of the service is to keep the cars moving so that you reduce the number of cars that are parked on the street, said Stafford. She said it also encourages people to use the cars specifically for quick trips. For Dyson, the service came in particularly useful when he went to the recent jazz festival. “We took it down and took it back, didn’t have to worry about parking

or anything,” he said, explaining the festival had a drop zone for the cars. The company site also shows car cleanliness, possible damage and fuel levels. Members unlock the cars by swiping their card across the windshield reader. Once inside, a touch screen prompts the user for their four-digit pin, unlocking the key to the ignition.

LYNN Valley resident Alysse Leite-Rogers trains for her upcoming ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, as a means of raising enough funds to pay for 10 women around the world to undergo life-altering surgery to treat obstetric fistula, a devastating injury that can occur during childbirth to women without access to medical care.

CLIMBING FOR FISTULA

Erin McPhee emcphee@nsnews.com

Change maker

ALYSSE Leite-Rogers, a Lynn Valley mother of three boys, felt overwhelmingly blessed. Back in 2006, she caught an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show that tackled a topic she was unfamiliar with: fistula, a devastating medical condition affecting hundreds of thousands of women around the world. According to the Fistula Foundation, a San Jose, Calif.-based non-profit organization that raises awareness of and funding for fistula treatment, as well as

prevention and educational programs internationally, obstetric fistula is a childbirth injury common in countries where women give birth without medical assistance. Due to advances in health care as well as the use of C-sections to relieve obstructed labour, fistula was largely eliminated in North America in the late 19th century. A fistula is essentially a hole created internally between the birth passage and the rectum or bladder, leading to incontinence. The injury occurs during childbirth, the result of contractions and the pushing of a baby — which often does not survive. Another common cause of fistula is sexual violence endured by women, through rape or internal violation with implements including wood, bayonets or rifles. See Funds page 14

These women, if they survive the injury at all, due to their resulting foul smell and inability to have more children, are at times rejected by their partners, families and communities as a whole, leading to isolation, according to the foundation. “It’s almost like being a leper,” says Leite-Rogers, 46. “They spend the rest of their lives alone in this state of shame. It’s really quite awful,” she adds. Continuing to watch the Oprah episode, LeiteRogers experienced what she

describes as a “moment of absolute gratitude,” realizing she experienced an obstructed labour with her first child. With access to health care, she underwent an emergency Csection that saved both her life and that of her son, Noah, who’s now 16. “It’s not something that we even think of here. . . . We think of childbirth as such a great, wonderful thing because of the medical attention that we have,” she says. “As women, we’re incredibly privileged to live where we do and I think with privilege comes responsibility,” she adds. Interested in offering support to those affected by fistula, Leite-Rogers has long made donations to the Fistula Foundation in support of fistula treatment, a surgical procedure costing $450 per woman. “I have supported them in small ways but I’ve always felt I wanted to do something a little bit bigger,” she says. Calling her initiative Climbing For Fistula, LeiteRogers, a local Realtor, has committed to raising enough funds to allow for 10 women

to undergo the life-altering surgery through the foundation and plans to climb Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro, an eightday journey. She is set to leave the North Shore Aug. 15. “I’m not a mountain climber, so this is my first climb,” she says. “I hike and run and I’m active, but I’ve never done anything that challenges me in this way. I’ve always had a desire to go to Africa, and I thought, well, this is a perfect opportunity to do something while travelling in a country. I always feel that it’s important to do something for that country that you visit somehow.” The $450 covers the surgery as well as post-operative care and transportation costs as well as a new dress that, as a whole, are intended to give the women “a complete new lease on life,” says Leite-Rogers.

ASKTHE EXPERT Dr. Cathryn Coe, ND

Are you exhausted? I suffer from fatigue and I need to reach for caffeine to stay alert. Can Naturopathic Medicine help? Fatigue can have many causes – the key to regaining your energy is to address the cause. When we reach for caffeine and sugary foods, the instant energy we feel also causes a release of stress hormones. This can lead to poor sleep and weight gain, and we continue to feel tired. Do you feel easily overwhelmed and are dizzy when you stand up? You may be suffering from adrenal fatigue. Continuous stress or shift work can deplete our adrenal glands and leave us exhausted. Low iron can also be culprit, as can low thyroid hormone. Identifying the cause can lead to long term relief from fatigue. Marine Drive Naturopathic Clinic offers successful treatments for fatigue, including vitamin IV therapy. A simple cortisol test or thyroid panel can determine the cause of the fatigue and ensure safe and effective treatment.

Does Skin Care Cause CANCER? 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.” Buyer Beware. Many companies have jumped on the “natural” band wagon promoting purity. However, to call a product natural it only has to legally contain10%naturalingredients. Read labels and ask questions. Nature’s Creations is chocka-block full of 100% natural products. They produce a line appropriately called

Natural Beauty Skincare® that is 100% natural and delivers fantastic results. And it’s LOCAL! Within weeks, clients comment on how radiant their skin becomes and say their friends notice it too.

NS News columnist puts readers to the test

ARE you hankering for a little lateral thinking?

Wanna give your noodle a workout? Looking for a bit of brain stimulation to get you through the summer? Well you’ve come to the right place. Today we’re featuring our fourth annual Seniors Quiz. The quiz is designed to test your knowledge about seniors’ issues and to stimulate your brain. It’s fun and doesn’t take long — there are only 15 questions to answer — and some of this information may

1. By 2025, one in four Canadians will be older than 60. True or false?

Answer key: Statements No. 4 and 14 are false. All others are true. If you scored well on the quiz congratulations but that’s not really the point. There is lots of evidence to suggest that honing intellectual skills can bolster the mind in the same way that physical exercise protects and strengthens the body. Your brain continues to change and grow according to the needs and demands put on it. Being involved in leisure activities that help stimulate your brain can help you live a longer and happier life. So get out there and enjoy the rest of the summer. Tom Carney is the executive director of the Lionsview Seniors’ Planning Society. Ideas for future columns are welcome.

Fifth-generation talking shop Torres winery head in town to pour, chat

IF Miguel Torres Jr. was American he’d be Miguel Torres V or something like that. But he’s very definitely Spanish, and proud to announce that his son is also named, well, you guessed it, Miguel. The fifth generation Torres, recently appointed general manager of Spain’s pioneering winery, dropped by Vancouver this week to pour a few wines from Torres’ Spanish and Chilean wineries. Prior to taking up his current duties, Torres ran the Chilean operation. It’s no surprise since he’s very familiar with the new world region where his company was one of the first outsiders (in 1979) to make significant investments in the wine industry. Even though some of the wines poured were made in different corners of the world, a common theme emerged that underscored Torres’ decidedly modern

Notable Potables Tim Pawsey

house style and well-earned reputation for making consumer friendly wines. Torres has operations in most of Spain and Chile’s prominent regions, as well as in Sonoma County, Calif. In recent years, the company has also expanded its Spanish vineyards well beyond its traditional base in Penedes and Catalonia. On this visit Torres told me that the company is working out of an existing facility in Galicia’s Rias Baixas and will soon be producing Albariño, which is exciting news indeed. Here’s a few value drops to watch for: ■ Vina Esmerelda 2011 This long-standing refreshing summer drop is a perfumed off-dry and floral

blend of Gewürztraminer and Moscatel. Enjoy it (well chilled) as the perfect patio sipper or pair it with lightly spiced Asian plates. It’s a crowd pleaser that also does nicely as a summertime reception wine (BCLS Specialty, $14.99 88 points). ■ Santa Digna Reserva Carmenere 2011 One of the better, more commercially styled offerings of Carmenere around that adds up to a solid introduction for anyone not familiar with the variety. Medium-bodied red with more complexity than you might expect for the money; cherry and black fruit on top with some earthy spicy notes on the palate wrapped in easy tannins. Value priced at BCLS $17.99, 89 points. ■ Celeste Crianza 2010 Here’s solid proof as to why we should pay more attention to Tempranillo and Ribero de Duero in particular. Black fruit and some peppery notes on the nose, fruity and plush in the mouth, blackberry, cassis and more, with definite oak, good length and firm tannins. Let it open in the glass and it will reward even more. Cries out for serious barbecue (BCLS $24.99, 91 points). •••

Looming large on the horizon is the Harmony Arts Festival (Aug. 2-11) along West Vancouver’s waterfront, which includes the Grosvenor Waterfront Lounge Wine Garden, hosted by House Wine. Take in the action on the Pacific Arbour Garden Stage, while sipping on wellchosen wines and nibbling tastes from Mangia e Bevi. More info at housewine.ca. ••• Belly’s Best Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino 2011 Yes, it’s a mouthful, and so is the wine: Terrific Vermentino from Sardinia. Distinctive pale yellow-green in the glass with floral and citrus hints on the nose before a mineral-tinged, citrus-fruity but zesty and broad palate with a solid finish. A truly versatile food wine that works well with everything from white fish with lemon butter to salads with a touch of vinaigrette, or sipped on its own. Just remember “Argiolas Vermentino” (BCLS $19.99, 90 points). Tim Pawsey covers food and wine for numerous publications and online as the Hired Belly at hiredbelly.com.

Being on the fringe makes this fringe big John Masters Meridian Writers’ Group

“PEOPLE would think that Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal would have the largest fringe festivals,” says Chuck McEwan. “But in those places you have lots of competition.”

photo John Masters/Meridian Writers’ Group

CHUCK McEwan, executive producer of the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, stands amid a forest of posters for fringe shows. More than 80,000 people are expected to see performances by 150 companies during the festival’s annual 12-day run.

McEwan, executive producer of the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, is explaining why his festival, along with the fringe in Edmonton, are the two largest in Canada and among the biggest, after the original fringe in Edinburgh, in the world. Size is one reason: in this case, a little smaller is a lot better. Also, “we have long winters here. You want to go out and enjoy your summers.” The fringe is as much a social event as a cultural one. The festival celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2012. That makes it five years younger than Edmonton’s fringe, North America’s oldest, but these days the two run neck and neck: each attracts 80,000 to 90,000 patrons to see about 150 companies perform at two dozen venues over 12 days. Winnipeg’s is in mid-July; Edmonton’s in mid-August.

The companies come from all over. In Winnipeg, half of them are Manitobabased, 30 per cent are from the rest of Canada and the remainder international — a category dominated by acts from Britain, Australia and the United States, but which may also include artists originating in Asia, Africa or Europe. Their shows could be anything from Shakespeare to Sam Shepard, from an intense, one-woman confessional to a two-man hour of slapstick.

Part of the fun of a fringe is that, as the audience, you’re often unsure if you’re standing in line to see a frog or a prince. McEwan and his team don’t select based on their perception of a show’s artistic merit: companies are allotted space first-come, first-served. The 12 official performance spaces range from the stage of the century-old Pantages Theatre to the well-airconditioned auditorium of the planetarium. There are another dozen bring-your-

own-venues — anything from a bookstore to a bar — where a company can make its own arrangements. They’re included in the festival’s program, and there’s no shortage of takers, says McEwan. McEwan figures a typical fringe company makes about $3,000. “It’s not about the money,” he says, “it’s about giving artists the chance to do a show.” For more information visit winnipegfringe.com.

THE warm weather is definitely hard on our dogs.

They have a terribly inefficient cooling system and are covered in fur. This makes for some hot dogs in this hot weather. Zumi, my German shepherd, is affected the most by the high temperatures. With her thick, black double coat she can’t seem to keep herself cool. Even Piper, my pointer, with his short coat is seeking the cool tiles of the kitchen floor. And poor Raider just doesn’t know what to make of this weather. He restlessly moves from the shade

on the back deck to the inside of the house and back again, just trying to find a cool place with a breeze. Even though the hot weather is challenging for our dogs, we can certainly do a few things to help them stay comfortable, and even refreshed, during this current heat wave. First and foremost, don’t exercise your dog in the middle of the day. A dog out on his regular routine walk between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. is much more susceptible to heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Also, walking a dog on the sidewalk or roadside in the blazing sun leaves the pads of their feet vulnerable to blisters due to the heat of the pavement. Seek out shaded areas to walk your dog, bring water for your dog and, if you can walk your dog a bit earlier in the cool morning or later in the evening when temperatures have dropped, they will certainly appreciate it. If your home is not cool or air-conditioned, provide your dog with open airflow of some sort. Moving air tends to be a few degrees cooler than

Hosing down your dog with cool water before or after a walk is another great way to help it stay cool, since dogs do not sweat except for their feet and nose. As air passes over their wet bodies it helps keep them cool, acting like sweat. Then there are our local waterways, which do not include kids’ waterparks — those are off limits to dogs! As long as the rivers are not running fast and high, taking your dog for a dip in the river is a fun way to cool off. You may even be able to join them if you are brave enough. Just be advised that even if the water levels are low, the water is still very cold. Being covered in fur, your dog may be fine jumping in the cold river water, but you might get a hypothermic blast! Summer is a great time to enjoy your dog but remember they have a very inefficient cooling system so keep them safe by keeping them cool.

Checklist helps people respond to hot dogs

WHAT should you do if you see a dog locked in a parked car on a sweltering summer’s day? North Vancouver-based Dogsafe Canine First Aid has launched a new resource to help residents decide what

stagnant air. This allows your dog to breathe in cool air, assisting in the cooling process. Placing an oscillating fan in the room can do this. Providing fresh cool drinking water is also very important. Dogs drink a lot in hot weather for a number of reasons. First, their panting tends to dehydrate them. Secondly, the cold water in their bellies helps keep them cool. A good suggestion is to freeze a water-filled yogurt container or Ziploc baggie, then place the large ice block (without the plastic) in the dog’s water bowl. The large block of ice melts slower than ice cubes and keeps the water cooler longer. Avoid feeding your dog ice cubes. If it chews on the cube the ice may crack a tooth, or the dog may swallow the cube whole, possibly choking. Even if it swallows the ice safely, the cold cube against its stomach lining may cause the dog to vomit. Iced water is best. Also, if possible, feed your dog later in the day. Having a full stomach during the midday heat can make it more challenging to keep cool.

action to take. The Dog in Hot Car Responder Checklist includes a fill-in-theblanks checklist starting with assessing the dog to attempts to locate owner to calling police to entering a vehicle with force. “Adrenaline and emotions are high when responding to a canine first aid

situation, especially dogs in hot cars,” says Dogsafe creator Michelle Sevigny. “Our responder checklist provides detailed guidance so people can get calm and make the best choices to help the dog.” Visit dogsafe.ca/communityprograms. html to download the free PDF.

Loki Meet Agnes, Scruffy and Loki: Diagnosed with the early stages of kidney disease, they are finding it harder than the average cat to find a forever family. They’re very affectionate cats, and require a wee bit of special attention to care for their needs. Agnes came to us in a sorry state, she was matted and needed extensive dental work which we have had done. Scruffy had obviously been on her own for a while, she was underweight, her coat was dirty and tangled. These two gals are not as active as they were in their younger days, but would make excellent companions for someone looking for a calm relationship. Loki on the other hand is still a bit of a firecracker; he is mischievous and likes to play. If you have room in your hearts and homes for one of more of them, please let us know!

North Vancouver DJ spins a success story

Christine Lyon clyon@nsnews.com

IT’S one of those over-asked icebreaker questions everyone has mused on at some point: if your house was on fire and you could only save one thing, what would it be? For Orene Askew, the question is not hypothetical. Last November, the local

DJ returned home to the Squamish Nation’s Mission Reserve after a late-night gig downtown. While she was sleeping, her neighbour’s home caught on fire and the blaze quickly spread. “I woke up to smoke and flames not knowing what to do,” Askew recalls. Without thinking, she scooped up her DJ equipment and ran outside, escaping uninjured. “Instinct took over and that’s the only thing I grabbed,” she said, explaining

the gear is not only monetarily valuable, it also represents her entire livelihood. This August will mark one year since Askew, 30, launched her own DJ business. She spins R&B, hip-hop and crowd favourites at weddings, parties and nightclubs under the stage name DJ O Show and so far business is booming, she says. “Since I started people have just been hearing about me and hiring me.” Her entrepreneurial endeavour was made possible,

in part, by business grants from the Squamish Nation Trust. Askew received $7,000 last year and another $5,000 this year. “I have a really good niche. There’s not a lot of female DJs out there,” she says when asked what made her grant applications stand out. Askew also participated in the BC Ministry of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation and Service Canada’s Aboriginal Best Program, a business and entrepreneurship skills training series for which

she is now a spokesperson. A graduate of BCIT’s broadcast radio program, Askew has worked at a Bellevue, Wash. radio station, Vancouver’s The Beat 94.5, and Vancouver Co-op Radio where she hosted a program featuring Squamish language lessons. She went on to take courses at the School of Remix and now teaches at the DJ education facility. She has also led DJ workshops for teens on the North Shore. When she’s not spinning or teaching, Askew can be found travelling the country as a motivational speaker for aboriginal youth. This month alone she has speaking

engagements lined up in Keremeos, B.C. and OujeBougoumou, Que. where she hopes to empower teens to follow their dreams. “You can do anything you want, you’ve just got to stay in school and be honest, be loyal, have integrity,” she says. North Shore residents can find Askew behind the turntable once a month at Mist Ultra Bar in West Vancouver. She also has a regular gig at Speakeasy downtown and will be spinning atop the Reconciliation Canada float in the Vancouver Pride Parade Aug. 4. Visit facebook.com/ DJOShow to learn more.

VanOpen serves up pro lineup

Men’s No. 1 seed just made quarterfinals at Wimbledon Andy Prest aprest@nsnews.com

THEY may want to add strawberries and cream to the menu at West Vancouver’s Hollyburn Country Club to keep up with the impressive Wimbledon flavour that will be on display starting next weekend at the $200,000 Odlum Brown VanOpen pro tennis tournament.

Scan this page with the Layar app to view video highlights of some of the pros coming to the Odlum Brown VanOpen, including Lukasz Kubot and the emotional ending to his great run at this year’s Wimbledon.

Organizers released the player lists last week and a pair of pros coming off strong showings in Jolly Old England are the headliners. On the men’s side Lukasz Kubot of Poland, ranked No. 63 in the world, is coming off an appearance in the Wimbledon quarterfinals where he faced countryman and Davis Cup teammate Jerzy Janowicz. The two were battling to become the first Polish player ever to reach a Grand Slam semifinal and it was Janowicz who came out on top in three sets. Kubot’s slick net game was not enough to keep up with Janowicz’s big serve but the match might be best remembered for the post-game hug. The two longtime friends embraced for more than 20 seconds and then exchanged shirts like a couple of soccer players. This will be the first time that a player coming off a Wimbledon quarterfinal singles appearance will play at the VanOpen in the same season, and organizers couldn’t be happier about it. photo Robbin Mendelson via Wikimedia Commons “We didn’t call him, he called us,” said tournament director Ryan LUKASZ Kubot headlines the Odlum Brown VanOpen starting next weekend at West Vancouver’s Hollyburn Clark. “It’s exciting to think that Country Club.

Vancouver gets talked about at that and Belgium’s Olivier Rochus, one of the tour’s contrast of styles.” level around the world now.” British Columbia native Vasek Pospisil will also be Barring any last-minute adds, Kubot will be the shortest players at five-foot-six. “My favourite player on the tour,” said Clark with back on the Hollyburn courts. The 23-year-old likely tournament’s top seed. Right behind him will be Russia’s Evgeny Donskoy, an up-and-comer who was a laugh. “Most tennis players are probably six-three, won a lot of fans in these parts for his role in helping ranked No. 199 in the world one year ago and has six-four. He’s super quick, unbelievably talented. . . Canada defeat Italy in a Davis Cup quarterfinal tie moved all the way up to his current spot at No. 66. . I like that type of style.

title this year with partner Peng Shuai of China. Hsieh is ranked No. 42 in the world in singles. Another Asian player currently slots in as the No. 2 seed and it’s a player with quite a back story. Japan’s Kimiko DateKrumm reached a personal best ranking of No. 4 in the world back in 1995. To put that in perspective, North Vancouver tennis phenom Filip Peliwo was one year old at that time. Date-Krumm then retired in 1996. After 12 years away from the professional game she returned in 2008 and now, as a 42-year-old, is ranked No. 63 in the world. Clark said the tournament is gaining a good reputation around the world, which has helped bump up the caliber of the field. “If you go back a bunch of years it was a lot of Canadian and U.S. players,” he said. “Now what you’re seeing is not only a huge influx from Asia, but you’re seeing a lot of European players. . . . We have players now that could play anywhere in the world and choose to come here. They’re passing up million dollar tournaments to come here.” The tournament begins with qualifying rounds, free to the public, July 27-28. Regular play begins Monday, July 9 with finals scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 3 and Sunday, Aug. 4. “If you’re a sports fan, it’s hard to beat this type of intimacy and this level of sport,” said Clark. “You can come out and watch matches all day and night, men’s, women’s — professionals from around the world up close and personal.” For ticket information visit vanopen.com.

Marjorie Landeen passed away after a brief illness, at the North Shore Hospice in North Vancouver, on the morning of July 6, 2013 at the age of 94. Marj was born in Delisle, Saskatchewan on October 26, 1918 to Arthur & Olive Morgan. Her father ran a dry goods store there until the onset of the Depression when the family moved to the Crescent Heights neighbourhood in Calgary where Marj attended high school, and worked at Woolworths Department Store. After WWII, Marj married Art Landeen and moved out to the village of Chinook, Alberta, where Art taught school until 1955. By this time there were two children in the picture, Barry and Susan. The next move was to the much bigger town of Lacombe, Alberta, population 2500 at that time. Art continued to teach high school in Lacombe, and Marj began a 30 year career as the high school secretary. Marj was that quick minded, organized person to whom everyone, students and teachers, came to with requests for information, favours or help. At various times she volunteered as a leader of Girl Guide and Cub Scout groups, and was always active in Anglican Church activities. Some years after Art died in 1987, Marj moved to the coast (West Vancouver) to enjoy the milder climate and ocean view, and to be closer to family. She will be remembered as the keeper of the family stories for all sides of the family and will be deeply missed for her sharp mind, generosity and patience, as well as for her interest in asking the big questions in life and being suspicious of those who provided simple answers. She is predeceased by her husband Arthur O.R. Landeen, her sister Eleanor Grigsby, and brother Gerald Morgan. Her two children Barry Landeen (Annette Reinhart) and Susan Harris survive her as well as grandchildren Eric Landeen-Lefebvre and Fred Landeen and the many relatives and friends whom she always kept in touch with. Donations in Marj’s memory may be made to the North Shore Hospice c/o Lions Gate Hospital Foundation. For those wishing to share memories of Marj or offer condolences, please visit www.firstmemorialfuneral.com and click on North Vancouver-Memorial Gardens. A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.

WILSON, Peter Blake 1928-2013

Peter was born in Prince George and attended Vernon Preparatory School, then moved to Vancouver to graduate from Prince of Whales High School in 1946. He worked in the fishing industry for the next 40 years at J.S. McMillan fisheries, the Hake consortium, Queen Charlotte Fisheries, Oakland Industries, The Western Canada Whaling Co. and B.C. Packers. He was predeceased by his parents J.O. and Ruth Wilson and sister Jill Kidder (Kendall). He is survived by his wife Ruth, sons John (Val), Brian, David, Geoffrey (Cindy), Grandsons Sam, Joe and Liam and his sister Barbara (Tony) Scott. A celebration of his life will be held on August 9, 2013 from 2-4 at the Capilano Golf and Country Club, 420 Southborough Drive West Vancouver.
