Convicted WVPD officer to keep job Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A West Vancouver police officer who attacked a newspaper delivery man after a night of binge drinking in January 2009 will not lose his job, a police complaints adjudicator has decided.

Instead, Const. Griffin Gillan will be handed a suspension of 30 working days and will be demoted for one year. Gillan will drop one pay level to second-class constable and must work under close supervision during that time. Gillan attacked newspaper carrier Firoz Khan outside of the Hyatt in downtown Vancouver following a night of off-duty drinking with two fellow officers. He pled guilty to assault in July 2009 and received a 21day conditional sentence plus six months probation. Following the criminal case, an internal police investigation See Constable page 5

Paroled killer goes to law school

Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A West Vancouver man who stabbed a friend to death outside the Hollyburn Country Club five years ago will return to law school at the University of British Columbia this fall while out on day parole.

Sasan Ansari, 32, was convicted in November 2008 of manslaughter in the killing of Josh Goos, who was stabbed 33 times outside the upscale club. Ansari served two years in jail before he was let out on day parole in January of this year. This month, the National Parole Board decided to extend

WV man convicted of savage 2006 stabbing to return to studies in fall

Ansari’s parole by another six months, noting he has been “accepted back to law school and will resume classes in September 2011.” Ansari completed his second year of law school between the time that he was charged with Goos’ murder in May 2006 and the time of his trial in 2008. But members of Goos’ family say they’re astounded UBC has agreed to let Ansari continue with his legal studies. “It is disturbing,” said Diane Goos, Josh’s mother. She said many people she’s talked to are shocked with the decision.

“He should still be in prison as far as I’m concerned.” Josh’s father Ron Goos said it’s not the first time the law faculty’s decisions have appalled the family. In February 2009, the family received a letter from a scholarship donor, Govin Roopra, who said he had been “staggered” to discover Ansari had been awarded his $1,000 scholarship — while awaiting trial for the killing. Goos said the university has continued to be insensitive to the “wider social implications” of its decisions. “I just can’t believe they live in such a distorted world,” he said. Mary Anne Bobinski, Dean of UBC’s Faculty of Law, said in a statement that the university “generally does not investigate See School page 3

A life saved, an act rewarded

North Van woman lauded for use of CPR Tessa Holloway tholloway@nsnews.com

Impact of teacher action to be ‘minimal’ Tessa Holloway tholloway@nsnews.com

LAURA Morrow never dreamed she would have to save her husband’s life, but one night last November she was forced to do just that. The North Vancouver resident woke at about 3 a.m. Nov. 23 to the sound of her husband, Craig Berry, gurgling. At first she thought it was snoring, but something didn’t sound right. Turning on the light, she found him unconscious with his eyes rolled back in his head, gasping for breath. Berry had just entered cardiac arrest. Every second was critical. Morrow called 911 and started CPR. Today, thanks to her actions, Berry has made a complete recovery. Morrow had never taken a CPR lesson in her life — it was the 9-1-1 operator who talked her through it in a steady, calm voice. PROVINCE photo Mark Van Manen “She had me count as I was doing this.

SCHOOLS should feel like normal in the first week of September, even if teachers go ahead with planned job action, the school districts and union officials say.

If the simmering dispute over wages, benefits and class size drags on, however, parents will likely notice some changes — most significantly a lack of report cards and formal parent-teacher interviews, although teachers will still be available for informal meetings. Extracurricular activities should continue as long as individual instructors agree, added Glen Hansman, second vice president for the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. “The teachers who do extracurriculars will be doing those, and we’ll still be meeting with parents to talk about progress, though not in the formal meetings,” he said. “The impact on families we feel will be minimal.” In fact, he argued, since teachers won’t be doing administrative work, filing reports or taking part in administrative meetings, they may have more time to focus on needs in the classroom than they otherwise would. Union members voted 90 per cent in favour of a strike earlier this summer, but the union hasn’t issued 72hour strike notice, which is required before any job action commences. Also, the BCTF describes the planned actions as a first stage, although Hansman said there has been no discussion yet on what the next steps might look like if a deal isn’t reached. Administration at the two North Shore school districts largely agreed with Hansman See Unknowns page 5

or assess its students’ personal lives and has no legal basis on which to prevent students with criminal records from attending UBC Law.” Attending law school does not mean that Ansari will necessarily become a practicing lawyer. Lesley Pritchard, spokeswoman for the B.C. Law Society, said before lawyers are called to the bar, they must satisfy requirements about “fitness and good character,” which can include answering questions about a criminal record or questionable conduct. She said any case that involved a serious criminal conviction would be considered very carefully. According to the parole board decision to extend day parole, Ansari presents a “low risk or low-moderate risk for future violence” and is employed, working 12 to 16 hours a day. The board did not give any details of that employment, although earlier decisions made note that Ansari had been offered a job at a law firm. The board did note Ansari exhibits some attitude problems, noting case managers pointed to “a victim stance, a sense of

entitlement and anti-authority attitude” — an assessment disputed by Ansari. The report noted Ansari also does not like to be criticized and can present “as argumentative and challenging at times.” Under the terms of his parole, Ansari is to live at a halfway house, is banned from taking drugs and must continue to get counselling. He must also keep parole officers informed of any financial dealings and has been ordered to stay away from two people whom corrections officers consider bad influences. The names of those people have not been made public by the board. Ansari’s brother, Soroush Ansari — who was a character witness at Sasan Ansari’s trial — was also released from prison on $250,000 bail in January after two years behind bars. Soroush Ansari, an alleged associate of the UN gang, is charged with counselling another alleged gang member, Barzan Tilli-Choli, to shoot at someone with an intent to endanger that person’s life on Jan. 24, 2009. The drive-by shooting is thought to be part of a gang turf war between the UN and the rival Red Scorpions. Calls to Ansari’s lawyers were not returned by press time.

Firefighter seriously hurt in boat mishap Victim’s life saved by colleagues on outing

Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A West Vancouver firefighter nearly died Thursday after he was seriously injured on an off-duty jetboating trip on the Squamish River. The 42-year-old, who lives in Squamish, was on a guided adventure tour with fellow firefighters when a tree branch overhanging the river speared his upper arm and torso, puncturing an artery. “It caused some serious damage,” said Sgt.

Wayne Pride of the Squamish RCMP. “He lost a lot of blood.” Quick action by his colleagues in the boat saved the man’s life. “The crew he was with was the best he could have been with,” said Pride. The man was rushed by ambulance to hospital in Squamish, and airlifted down to Vancouver General Hospital shortly after, where he underwent emergency surgery. “I don’t think he’s out of the water yet in regard to his injuries,” said Pride. Pride said several other people in the boat also suffered minor injuries including concussions Transport Canada and the Transportation Safety Board are now investigating whether the tour operator was properly licenced and

Constable pledges to work to regain trust

conducted by Abbotsford Chief Const. Bob Rich recommended Gillan be reduced in rank from constable to probationary constable and be given a 10-day unpaid suspension. Gillan was also suspended for 11 months without pay by then-police chief Kash Heed immediately following the incident. Following a public hearing in January, Boyle found Gillan guilty of both improper off-duty conduct and discreditable conduct. On Friday, Boyle accepted a joint submission from Michael Tammen, the lawyer representing the Office of the Police Complaints Commission, and Gillan’s lawyer David Butler on what the officer’s punishment should be for his actions. Gillan told Boyle at the public hearing in

January that his unprovoked attack is “still something I’m grappling with and trying to come to terms with,” adding he remains “embarrassed and baffled” by his actions. Gillan guessed he’d had about 25 drinks on the night of the attack. He told Boyle he thinks about the incident every day, although he said he has no memory of the attack or most of the events leading up to it. “I want to prove to people who don’t think much of me that I’m better than what they think of me,” he said. “I’m trying to do whatever I can to make it better and regain that trust.” Gillan, who is back working at the West Vancouver Police Department, told the hearing that being a police officer is “the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do.”

Jetboat operator investigated From page 4 following safety regulations at the time. Nothing in the investigation points to drugs, alcohol or dangerous behaviour by passengers in the boat, said Pride. “It’s pretty wild in some parts of the river,” he said. A man who answered the phone at Squamish RiverJet and identified himself as a manager confirmed there had been an accident on the river but refused to say if his company had been involved. “I couldn’t shed any light on that for you,” he said. The injured firefighter — a married father of two — remained in hospital at press time. There was no immediate word on his condition.

Unknowns creating anxiety, says PAC From page 3 on the impacts, though Chris Kennedy, superintendent for the West Vancouver school district, said principals and administration staff will be swamped. “There’s a lot more work being placed on our school principals and vice principals, and if this initial action goes ahead, they’ll see principals and vice principals who are already putting in really long hours having additional tasks they need to complete,” he said. It’s manageable, he said, “assuming the strike action isn’t stepped up beyond what union organizers have said publicly.” Despite the assurances, many parents are on pins and needles, according to North Vancouver Parent Advisory Committee chairwoman Cyndi Gerlach. While school is less than two weeks away, she said parents still don’t know what’s going on. “I think the angst is starting now as school is getting closer,” she said. “There are too many questions and not enough answers.” Those answers will be forthcoming, said Victoria Miles, spokeswoman for the North Vancouver school district, through email and information posted online. Negotiations on a new agreement began in March, while the previous five-year deal ended in June of this year. While the two sides are far apart, the current round of bargaining began Aug. 23 and

both sides say negotiations have been respectful. Hansman said teachers are asking for wage increases, better benefits and more say on the size and makeup of their classroom — something that was taken away from them in 2002 legislation, a law that was struck down by the courts this April. The changes would cost more money, said Hansman, but they are needed for teachers to catch up to what other provinces pay. B.C. is currently ranked eighth in the country — down from third — while teachers in Alberta earn about $21,000 more, he said, adding the union is willing to compromise to reach a fair deal. Hugh Finlayson, CEO of the B.C. Public School Employers Association, said their costing of the union’s proposal adds up to about $2 billion. The provincial government’s most recent throne speech said there was no more money available for contracts until the economy improved, and Finlayson said they need to work within that “net zero” mandate. “What it says is you can move monies around within the collective agreement,” he said, so money for increased wages has to come from somewhere else in the agreement. Two thirds of provincial employees have already signed within that mandate, added Finlayson, arguing there’s no reason that teachers can’t do the same.

HE decision by the provincial government to halve the rate increase sought by B.C. Hydro is not only irresponsible, it’s a rerun of the behaviour the Liberals rightly denounced an NDP government for in the 1990s. The motives are transparent enough — nobody likes bigger bills in their mailbox and a government already reeling from the HST debacle is eager to shield voters from them. But pretending these costs don’t exist doesn’t make them go away. It’s all well and good to tell Hydro to find cost efficiencies and lay off a thousand people, but one of the biggest savings, the euphemistically phrased “deferral of capital expenditures,” is actually no savings at all; it’s simply kicking those costs down the road to future ratepayers — ourselves.

Not many British Columbians realize what a sorry state our electrical grid is in. Unlike roads or ferries, it’s not something that people see. If the lights go on, it works. But the truth is that we have massive costs looming just to keep what we have working, let alone develop the “smart grid” that could help B.C., and North America as a whole, conserve energy. We are blessed with cheap and clean electricity in this province. Raising rates modestly now, though unpopular, will fund needed work and help avoid more painful increases in the future. Crown corporations are not cash machines. It was wrong for the NDP to pillage Hydro in the 1990s and it’s wrong for the Liberals to buy votes with Hydro dollars today.

MLA Sultan adds insult to injury

Dear Editor: With his snide and condescending comments, elitist West Vancouver MLA Ralph Sultan roundly insults the 900,000 or so B.C. residents who voted down the HST (Referendum Defeat Puts End to HST, Aug. 28, North Shore News). He must think that in chalking up the North Shore’s overall support to “sophisticated” voters, those who opposed the tax will fail to latch on to the fact he is implying they are the opposite — too stupid to know what is good for them. This patronizing attitude is exactly why the populace is sick to death of politicians like Mr. Sultan — and former Premier Gordon Campbell, whose similar attitude landed the province in this costly mess. These politicians and their ilk speak down to the people, not for the people, and seem to think that their lofty perch gives them this right. All it does is confirm that they are totally disconnected from the reality of the average working person already struggling with the ever-increasing cost of living.

What these “less sophisticated” constituents do grasp is that the HST was designed to shift the tax burden from the wealthier business class to the ordinary man in the street. The “less sophisticated” are smart enough to know that it hurts them in the pocket with no proven long-term benefit. The last time the “less sophisticated” checked, the “more sophisticated” were generally far more interested in putting cost savings into their own pockets than in passing them on to consumers. The people have spoken loud and clear in this historic referendum, not once but twice — and not because they are “less sophisticated,” but because they have had enough of superior-minded politicians believing they have carte blanche to ram anything down the throats of the so-called “less sophisticated” whom, they seem to forget, they are supposed to serve. Jerome and Kimberley Henen North Vancouver

Just ’cause we killed it doesn’t mean we’re against it Dear Editor: No one who voted against the HST is anti-HST; we are anti-higher-taxes and unhappy with the Liberals. The introduction of this tax showed just how out of touch the Liberal government is with B.C. citizens. Raising taxes right after a major economic collapse, when we were all struggling, was despicable. The harmonized tax created efficiencies that should have been passed on to taxpayers but were instead secretly pocketed as extra revenue.

CONTACT US

We who voted against it knew that the HST would have been a better tax at 10 per cent, but there was no way any of us were going to trust the Liberals to lower it in 2014 as promised. Rather, it should have been lowered to 10 per cent immediately — where it should have been all along. That single action would have swung the vote the other way. Christy Clark has botched her first important test as premier. That mistake will now cost us $3 billion. Unfortunately, the Liberals are still out of touch,

because it is obvious that they think this vote was all about the HST. From the tone of Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s remarks after the vote, it is clear that his government is now planning to punish us with spending cuts — and likely by raising taxes in even more devious ways. What do you expect from a party that is neither Liberal nor Conservative, just unprincipled and deceptive? I’ve always voted Liberal but no more. Craig Farlinger West Vancouver

Stand needs moving, not removing Dear Editor: Surely this spot of trouble over Brian’s Fruit Stand is being blown out of proportion; he has a legitimate right, and license, to sell his fruit on Dickinson Crescent. My suggestion would be that the municipality request he move into the nearby parkand-ride area so that the stand would no longer be visible to the objecting homeowner and so that car traffic could drive in. The stand owner would be allowed to put up a sign on Dickinson. The council should, at the same time, have an inspector check the location of his sign on Marine Drive, as it prevents cars exiting 31st Street from seeing traffic approaching from the west.

Funeral cast light on Jack’s character “Canada is a great country, one of the hopes of the world. We can be a better one — a country of greater equality, justice and opportunity. We can build a prosperous economy and a society that shares its benefits more fairly.” Former NDP leader Jack Layton, 1950-2011

Just Asking

THE afternoon of Sunday, Aug. 21 was heavy with heat; humidity was high in advance of the rain forecast for the following day.

Elizabeth James

Neither I nor the two dogs that kept me company were inclined to do more than enjoy the relative cool of the shade in our Lynn Valley garden. My head in a good book, there was little on my mind until a small thought interrupted the words on the page: “I wonder how Jack Layton is doing? We haven’t heard anything since he stepped aside.” Then as quickly as the thought had occurred to me, I returned to my story. Not until Monday’s early morning news did I understand the reason for that moment of ESP. It would take five

more days before I would understand the reason the thought had come so clearly to someone who did not know Jack Layton — or just Jack, as he preferred Canadians think of him. I’m not a member of the NDP — likely never will be — and I certainly did not agree with all of his political positions. Anyone who saw his eyes as he announced he was stepping aside to battle cancer must have known he was seriously ill. So why did the announcement of his death come as a shock and with a feeling of such sad emptiness? The answer came to me gradually in the days following Jack’s death — to me and to many thousands of other Canadians across the country.

Simply put, we cared about Jack because he cared about us. Canadians cared about him because he didn’t just dream about a better Canada; he worked to make that dream a reality, and he did so honestly. Politics aside, we cared about him because we knew the Jack we saw was the real deal. Canadians knew they didn’t have to second-guess what he was saying. In short, Jack was not just a politician; he was, above all else, a decent man. I had not intended to watch television coverage of the state funeral. If I don’t know the person who died, or did not take enough time to let them know I cared about them in life, why would I intrude after they were gone? As it happened, however, the Global TV newscast I was watching faded into the feed of the funeral from Toronto and I was persuaded otherwise — and am glad of it. What I saw in the next 90 minutes was Jack Layton as most of us had never seen him before: the full measure of the man, so to speak. The man about whom AIDS advocate Stephen Lewis, himself a tireless humanitarian, said: “I loved Jack’s goodness

and his ideals in equal measure. . . . It’s clear that everyone (has) recognized how rare and precious his character was.” Yes, this was the man who, participating in the plans for his own funeral, chose Rev. Brent Hawkes — partner of a man called John — to conduct the service. Through Hawkes, we learned that Jack’s first words on meeting seeing him were always caring: variations of “Hi, Brent. How’s John doing?” As I watched the ceremony unfold, I understood just how much courage ran through Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall that day: The courage of Shawn Atleo, leader of the Assembly of First Nations and hereditary chief of the Ahousaht First Nation, who opened the service with a traditional blessing despite knowing that one member of his own family had been killed and others injured by an alleged drunk driver just two days earlier. The courage of Jack’s partner Olivia Chow who, after days of difficult preparations, walked the streets of Toronto ahead of the cortege and then sat sad-faced but composed through 90 minutes of the service. Connecting it all was the

thread of Jack’s own courage when, despite the pain, he participated until the very last day of his final session in Parliament. Perhaps, before his untimely death, Jack Layton

Dear Editor: Boo hoo for West Vancouver homeowner Paul Marshall (Mansion Owner Takes on Fruit Man, Aug. 24, North Shore News). Kudos to the district’s Bob Sokol for

seeing through the ridiculousness of his complaint about Brian’s Fruit Stand. Perhaps Mr. Marshall should look at the real factors that are preventing him from selling his home: a high price, a bad location (across the

street from a railway track), competition and a listing agent who clearly isn’t marketing his home effectively. Christine Marriott West Vancouver

Now plan has roots in then

Dear Editor: Thank you for the attention to Ambleside, and to the sustained community and council effort over the past decade to improve upon the heart of West Vancouver (AmblesideWhen? Aug. 21, North Shore News). During the Official Community Plan process which began ten years ago, the community agreed that we needed to pay attention to renewal in Ambleside. As a result, it was listed as a priority throughout our 2004 OCP.

In 2005, council established the Ambleside Town Centre Strategy Working Group to further develop our policy for the area. Council adopted their recommendations, which include a three-storey limit for most of Ambleside Village with the exception of three sites where the OCP expressly considers buildings over four storeys: Safeway, the police station block and the north side of the 1400-block where the McDonald’s used to be. In 2008, council agreed to

focus on implementation. The 1300-block of Marine Drive was the obvious place to start. A large part of the property has been an abandoned gas station lot for the entire nine years I have been on council. Former Mayor Ron Wood talked often about the need for a new police station, and the council I served on with him studied where to relocate the building. This council has decided that the public safety building should go next to the municipal hall — a fitting location.

The ideas the community has generated for Ambleside are numerous, exciting and should be put into action. Housing, vibrant businesses, office space, broad sidewalks, better parking, consideration of the arts — hundreds of residents have shaped the ideas that we are working to fulfill, and we are counting on continued participation. Politicians are often criticized for making shortterm decisions. The process for Ambleside has been deliberate, inclusive, thoughtful and sustained for a decade to get us to this point. This is not a contest between business owners and residents by any stretch; it is a very serious effort to improve our centre of town based on what people have said they wish to see. Our council intends to take that step. Futurecouncilswillcontinue to fulfill the vision, as they see fit, and as the community continues to evolve. Mayor Pam GoldsmithJones District of West Vancouver

A great man who loved a great country

Dear Editor: Watching Jack Layton’s funeral with millions of Canadians, emotions run strong. How can we properly honour this man who touched so many so deeply? His letter to all of us is a testament to a deeply compassionate life and a commitment to making this great country an even greater one of “equality, justice and opportunity.” The greatness of our country is not only in its natural riches, but also in the richness of our human wealth. It is the legacy of people like Jack Layton, who live his life with love and joy, optimism and dedication to his fellow Canadians. The pursuit of a more just, more compassionate society finds a home in our hearts; it is the essence of the hopes most of us have for this country. Watching the violent events in the Middle East and other parts of the world, we feel so blessed to be in Canada, not because it is the “best place on earth,” but because there are excellent, dedicated people who love it enough to fight to make it even better. What country marks the passing of a politician with such genuine heartfelt sorrow and love? Which politician leaves a legacy so unanimously celebrated? Thank you, Jack, for a life so well lived. May we live up to your example. Victoria Bakich North Vancouver

Camp helps rebuild a long-lost trust Police and First Nations come together in sport

POLICE officers with the North Shore’s Integrated First Nations Unit got a chance to take off their uniforms earlier this month and don a new wardrobe: one of camp counsellor. Starting Aug. 2, members of the North and West Vancouver unit led the third annual Project ESCAPe, a week-long outdoor excursion for First Nations youth. Set at Camp Jubilee on Indian Arm, the event is helping teach kids life skills — while at the same time rebuilding some bridges that were eroded a long ago. “There’s a whole historical mistrust between aboriginal communities and especially the RCMP, and I think as with any community, it’s really good to build those kinds of relationships,” said Carleen Thomas, manager of education See Cops page 11

Alongwiththeusualcamping activities the excursion features canoeing, kayaking, archery, high-ropes, rock climbing and outdoor survival training. Founded in 2009, ESCAPe was the brainchild of North Vancouver RCMP Const. Joey Starr, who said he based the idea on a similar camp he took part in as a Mountie in Mission. Starr, a member of the First Nations unit, said he knows he’s on the right track by the response he gets in his day-today job. By fall, teenagers will flag him down to ask him about next year’s camp. “You’re not just a cop who might be looking for them; submitted photo you’re someone who they had a water fight with, someone they YOUTH from the Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish and Musqueam First Nations attend have sat next to at a campfire and the camp each year, with 118 up for the week this summer. chatted with about what’s on their mind that day. It just totally changes the dynamic,” said Starr, year. She has attended every one of the camps so far.

Joelle overcame a fear of heights to do a high-rope obstacle The two officers didn’t do so well in that water fight, admitted course through the forest canopy, and had her mettle tested on one Palmer. “(We got) ganged up and teamed up on,” he said. The project is growing. This year, ESCAPe saw 118 students especially harrowing kayaking trip. “My first year, I got sick, so I had to go back. I kayaked on the way aged 7-16 attend. That’s a more than three-fold increase over the back, and just doing that stretch really gave me that accomplished camp’s first iteration in 2009, when just 36 came out. The endeavour received about $60,000 in funding this year, which feeling,” said the Collingwood student. “I learned that I can do includes $10,000 from the RCMP’s Mounted Police Foundation in more than what I think I can do.” Starr said those kinds of skills come in handy later in life. addition to funding from each of the First Nations, some corporate “We’re teaching the kids to try new things, to challenge sponsors and Camp Jubilee itself. Starr said organizers hope to add to that figure next year and themselves, so that in time when they go out for education and for work, they’re going to be more inclined to do that kind of stuff; expand the project with more focused leadership camps. Thirteen-year-old Joelle Johnston was among the campers this (They’ll be) used to challenging themselves.”

WEEVILS, which look similar to some beetles, are garden pests that like to munch on the leaves of many different plants, including rhododendron, yew and lily.

Keep plants healthy to thwart weevil attacks LATE August is a great time to enjoy the garden and it’s also an opportune time to control weevils in the garden.

There are several species of weevils native to B.C. including the obscure root weevil (Sciopithes obscurus), woods weevil (Nemocestes incomptus), Horn’s Woods weevil, (Nemocestes horni) and the Woodburn weevil (Dyslobus granicollis). But the black vine weevil (Otiorhynchus sulcatus) and the strawberry root weevil (Otiorhynchus ovatus) both introduced to B.C. around 1895 from Europe are the most prolific weevil pests of plants in gardens, nurseries and berry fields. Weevils look similar to some beetles, having a three segmented body that is about eight millimetres long, with a head with black antennae, a long snout, a small mid section called the thorax and a large abdomen. The body colour is black or brown and sometimes spotted with yellow or tan spots. Black vine weevils are flightless females and parthenogenetic, meaning reproduction happens without fertilization from a male. Female weevils lay on average 200 eggs. Adult weevils lay eggs on the soil surface in July and the eggs hatch in two to three weeks. The newly emerged larvae descend into the soil to feed on roots and root bark. Weevil young (called larvae) are white in colour, with brown heads, no legs and often found curled in the soil lying in a “C” shape. Larvae are usually smaller than the adult or slightly larger depending on their stage of development and how much food is available to eat.

Dig Deep

Todd Major During their development, the larvae molt five or six times within earthen cells in the soil. Adult weevils eat the leaves of many different plants including rhododendron, yew, strawberry, lily, camellia, salal, rose, viburnum, many perennials, trees and many other plants. Damage is indicated by the telltale crescent-shaped notches on the edge of the leaf with severe damage leaving the leaf looking jagged. Adults are nighttime feeders and they feed on new or current year’s leaf growth. A few or several weevil notches on the leaf is not a plant health concern, it is merely a cosmetic issue. Weevils do not eat holes in leaves but they can eat notches into leaf holes caused by other pests. Weevil larvae eat plant roots and they can eat the soft bark where the trunk/stem touches the ground, causing stem girdling and plant death. Effective weevil control can be obtained by using integrated control methods, not just one method but several methods applied simultaneously. Keeping plants healthy is always the best line of defence and it can be obtained by properly watering, applying mulch, avoiding the use of chemical

fertilizers which induce soft leaf growth that is prone to pest attack and choosing the right plant for the right place. Encouraging natural weevil enemies like birds, frogs, toads, shrews, hedgehogs and predatory ground beetles is very effective. Applying sticky barriers like Tanglefoot or StickEm to the trunk will prevent adult weevils from travelling up the trunk to eat the leaves. Apply a plastic wrap or masking tape to the stem before applying Tanglefoot to avoid stem tissue burn. Chemical control of adult weevils in a residential setting is generally ineffective due to the lack of effective personnel training, poor quality spray equipment, insect resistance and the fact that most people spray after the damage is seen, which is too late to control

the adult and the larval stage can’t be controlled with foliar sprays. Weevil traps can be made from burlap, small pieces of wood, small pots or corrugated cardboard that is placed under the target plants. The weevils will hide in the traps during the day where they can be collected before their nighttime feeding begins. Physical barriers placed on top of the soil work but barriers can be time consuming to install and they need monitoring for effectiveness. A layer of sharp See Coffee page 16

TO PURCHASE TODAY VISIT:

sand placed around target plants may prevent egg laying. Coffee grounds are also said to be an effective deterrent but too much coffee is not good for the soil pH. The use of beneficial and parasitic nematodes can be effective in controlling weevil larvae that are found in the soil in late August and September. Commercial nematode products include BioSafe, Biovector and Nemesis, among others. Soil temperatures must be at least 13 C, preferably higher, and lots of irrigation must be applied to the soil before and after nematode application to

allow the nematodes to swim through the soil to find the larvae. These nematodes do not like direct sunlight, so apply them during the evening. One of the most effective weevil controls can be obtained by hand-picking them off the plant during their nighttime feeding hours. This is best done during the “summer weevil hunt party” that includes the company of friends and lots of wine.

STEVE Jobs, former chief executive officer of Apple, recently stepped down from his position to deal with health issues. Jobs’ leadership brought Apple to the forefront.

A new era at Apple

I only met him once, and it was a brief encounter to say the least. Met is actually a misnomer. Said hello is closer to the truth, but I feel, as do many others of my age and occupation, a close relationship to Steve Jobs.

We grew up together. I entered the computer industry as Jobs’ star began to rise. I began my career in tech in 1985, as the Mac was on the horizon. I hitched my star to Apple early on, and have always maintained a relationship with the company and many of the staff at Apple. Apple is a firm like no other. Some call it a cult, and criticize it for that. There has always been something different, something special about Apple and their products, and we don’t have

Digital Age

Steve Dotto to look far for the reason. It is Steve Jobs — the culture he built, the fanatical demands he placed on his team, the almost maniacal belief in his own vision formed a company that changed the world. As he steps down, it is easy to wax poetic. He has become the iconic figure of the tech world, no shadow is larger. For years, Jobs was the bad boy brat in the shadow of Bill Gates. At 25 he was

ousted from Apple, the company he had built, by his own hand-picked successor, John Sculley, the man Jobs had brought on board to mentor him and prepare him for the next phase in Apple’s journey. This sent Jobs into the wilderness. He formed NeXT, a doomed rival for Apple, and that led him to Pixar, which he turned around. Many people forget Apple is not Jobs’ only success story. His return to Apple launched a re-birth at Apple, for both the company and Jobs, and that turnaround has propelled Apple to the rock star status it currently holds, which no other firm can duplicate. Now Apple faces a future without Jobs at the helm and many are asking about how Apple will perform without Jobs. I feel a bit mercenary talking about business while

Hydrangea makes pretty display

CREATING a beautiful table centrepiece doesn’t have to be timeconsuming or arduous.

the place to be

If you keep the basic items on hand you can assemble something in minutes. At this time of year, you may have one or two hydrangea bushes blooming Home Ideas in your garden. To make Barb Lunter a simple centrepiece, snip a few hydrangea heads in varying sizes and float them in some fresh water until you are ready to make the arrangement. Alternatively, you may use other flowers for this idea, such as roses or orchids.

Materials: 3-4 fresh hydrangeas Clear vases (in varying sizes) Sharp knife or pruning shears Floating candles

Clean your hydrangea heads of any dirt or debris and fill your clear vases half way with room temperature water. Immerse the hydrangea heads into the water and fill the container until the water level is a couple of centimetres from the edge of the vase. Place your floating candles on top. Repeat this step with the other vases. Assemble your containers in the centre of the table or scattered along in a vertical line. This idea works well with rose petals as well. Float a variety of discarded rose petals in clear cylinders and place a floating candle on top. lunter@shaw.ca

Apple’s challenges are further down the road From page 17 we see before us the failing health of a young man being forced to step away in his prime years. Remember, Jobs is just over 50, with a family, kids, friends — he is far more than the CEO of a company. But such is the nature of Apple. People are concerned that the innovation will continue, that Apple will perform without Steve Jobs in the big office. I will say this, that his management team has been stable for a very long time, and the Apple product map is undoubtedly formed for three to five years down the road. In the short term, I don’t see much changing. Apple never missed a step

when Tim Cook took over in an interim basis a few years ago due to Jobs’ health. The challenge for Apple will come as this team picks its successors. In 10 years or so is when Apple faces a crossroads, and that is a very long time out. Even if Jobs remained, who could make predictions on that timeline? But, I really want to spare a thought for Steve Jobs, the man who, although I don’t personally know, I grew up with. I hope he has a long tenure as Chairman Jobs, and more importantly as Dad, and Husband Jobs. Steve Dotto is host of Dotto Tech, Wednesdays at 6 p.m. on AM 650.

Northshore Windows Takes The Time To Get It Right When it comes to saving energy in your home, your windows are one area where you can make an enormous difference in heating costs. Our moist cool climate means that having Energy Star rated windows isn’t enough. They must be installed properly to get an effective seal.

glass rather than the typical aluminum, and low-e coatings on the glass to filter UV. Combined, these components generally allow a window to meet Energy Star requirements. Making sure they are sealed properly gives the window a chance to do its job.”

Darrell Akune and the team at Northshore Windows always take the time to make sure you get the most out of upgrading your windows.

Not all windows are built with the same level of quality. One simple way for homeowners to get an idea for a windows quality is to check the warranty. High quality windows will offer full lifetime warranties.

“Consumers should focus their attention on how their windows and doors are being installed,” says Darrell. “Typical window replacement companies use a quick and easy installation method that makes it difficult to ensure the product is properly sealed. We like to take the time to explain different installation methods to our customers because once educated, people realize the importance of proper installation.”

Buying top of the line

replacement windows can be helpful, but making sure they are installed properly gives you the most for your money.

Buying top of the line replacement windows can be helpful, but making sure they are installed properly gives you the most for your money. “It doesn’t make sense to purchase an energy star rated window if the installation method is going to allow cold air to leak around the perimeter,” says Darrell. “This seems to be an overlooked part of the window replacement process. The most common Energy Star windows will have Argon gas filled sealed glass units, thermally efficient spacer bars between the

“Build quality is very important to us. When we researched which window and door products we wanted to offer our customers, we wanted the best available. After examining what was available in the marketplace and determining which manufacturer could provide us and our customers with the best product while still providing good value, it became very apparent why they were able to offer a true lifetime warranty.”

If you’re thinking of replacing or upgrading your windows this fall, make sure you include Northshore Windows in your research. They take the time to make sure you have all the information you need, and get the most savings out of your window purchases. Visit them online at northshorewindows.com for ideas and find out the difference that doing it right the first time makes.

PARENTING

When your teen drops out of school WHAT happens when a child decides to drop out of school? Up to what age is school attendance compulsory? If a teenager is out of school and wandering around doing nothing, is there anyone who would pick him up and take him to school?

Parenting Today

One of our readers Kathy Lynn presented this dilemma to us. And the short answer is that children are supposed to stay in school until they are 16, but because there are no longer truant officers there is no one to deal with a kid on the street unless he is breaking the law. So what’s a parent to do? The first step is to become a detective and find out why. Why has he dropped out of school? Visit the school and meet with the school counsellor. Also talk

to any of his teachers who might know him well enough to determine the problem. Has he fallen behind on his assignments and feels he can never catch up so has given up? Is he having a lot of trouble with one of his academic subjects and figures he’s going to fail, so what’s the point of trying? Is he being bullied? Is he dealing with a romantic problem? Did his girlfriend dump him? Discovering the reason for his behaviour will go a long way to solving the problem. An average 15-year-old is not really keen to spend his days doing nothing. However, once he has started it can become a habit. So you need to find out what is going on with him. Then the solution may be a tutor, a plan with his teachers to help him over the hump or counselling. If the issue is bullying, you need to work with the school on an anti-bullying plan. And if he is recovering from a romantic break-up he needs to be heard so listen to him while he talks about his feelings. On a broader front, a child who has determined that he is no longer a student is now a young adult. It’s not healthy for anyone to do nothing all day.

Rocket encourages early readers ■ How Rocket Learned to Read, by Tad Hills, Schwartz (Wade Books, $20.99) unpaged.

book buzz

LEARNING to read is a really important accomplishment and Rocket the dog is urged to learn the “wondrous, mighty, gorgeous alphabet” in this picture book about a cheerily keen bird teacher and a somewhat reluctant student.

Fran Ashdown Contributing Writer

Rocket has many enjoyable activities and includes them all in his daily routine. The routine is interrupted when a little yellow bird tells Rocket he is her first student and that class begins right away. Rocket demurs to no avail and pretty soon he is completely captivated by a story that was “as delicious as the earthy smells of fall.” This bird teacher has some good skills and ends the first lesson with a cliff hanger as Rocket demands to know whether the dog in

the story did actually find a bone. Rocket has no idea he is being manipulated by a master and shows up at the teaching tree early the next day to discover how the story’s plot turns out. He becomes an eager student in no time and learns the alphabet, including the letters required to spell the sound of a grumpy dog. When his teacher flies south for the winter, Rocket is impelled to practice his new skills by See Rocket’s page 29

W. Van foundation gives scholarships Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

SIX North Shore students were awarded a grand total of $7,000 in scholarships by the West Vancouver Community Foundation earlier this month. Outstanding academic performance combined with a commitment to community service earned Luke Rowan the Faris Family Scholarship. Rowan, a graduate of Rockridge secondary, is slated to enroll in either humanities or social sciences at university. If Rowan can maintain an A average, the scholarship will pay him $1,500 a year for the next four years. Andrew Martin, a recent graduate of West Vancouver secondary, was awarded the $500 Jerry Beckerman Memorial Scholarship due to his strong academic record and dedication to community service. Eva Jordison, of West Vancouver secondary, took home the $500 Trajan Martin Memorial Award because of her compassion, integrity, and exuberance for life. This fund was established by family and friends of Martin, who passed away at the age of 26. Siobhan Brown, of West Vancouver secondary, was awarded the James A. Inkster Leadership Award, due to her enthusiasm for extracurricular activities, leadership and school spirit. Nik Marshall, of Sentinel secondary, and Jeff McKinnon, of UBC, were awarded the Jeremy Dalton Rugby Endowment Award. The award is given to a member of the Capilano Rugby Club who demonstrates a sense of community spirit, academic interest and a love for rugby.

FOR years now there has been a rug shop going out of business at the corner of Pemberton Avenue and Marine Drive in North Vancouver. At least it has seemed that way. Next to it, in a storefront laced with garish yellow signage, is a restaurant that’s changed hands many times. I haven’t dined there; the revolving door of operators and the dingy, dated exterior turned me off. So when I recently received an email from a reader advising of yet another new business in the space, called 2S Green Asian Cuisine, offering “lovely service and a wide-ranging menu,” I was skeptical. Still, I convinced my coworker Shorty to accompany me there for lunch on a recent weekday. (Actually, “convinced” is a stretch; I didn’t tell her where we were going, just offered her a free meal.) As we rolled into the parking lot I was reminded of my previous estimation of the place, but as soon as we pushed through the door I realized my mistake. I had judged the proverbial book by its unappealing and unfashionable cover. Inside, the place is clean and spacious with comfortable booths. The bar is set in glittering glass tiles and a wide-screen TV offers a diversion for those dining alone or with little to talk about. We opened our menus. “Oh,” sighed Shorty. “It’s one of these.” “One of these” refers to a massive menu with an overwhelming number of dishes to read through. 2S Green Asian Cuisine dishes up cuisine from Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and China, plus smoothies, bubble teas and fresh juices. It’s a mind-boggling read. You can have your lemon chicken or pan-friend Gyoza, followed by Kung Pow boneless

Pack homemade love in the lunch bag Apple Toffee Squares

WHERE did summer go?

Already it’s back-to-school time (did I hear a cheer from all the mothers out there?) and the brown-bag set will be hoping to find something yummy waiting for them when lunchtime rolls around. Here are some simple recipes for treats that’ll put smiles on their faces — they’re light-years ahead of those tasteless store-bought granola bars.

½ cup granulated sugar 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar 1¼ tsp apple pie spice or cinnamon ½ cup butter, softened 2 eggs 1 tsp vanilla 11⁄3 cups all-purpose flour 1½ tsp baking powder ¼ tsp salt 1¼ cups peeled, chopped tart apple (like Granny Smith) ½ cup Skor Toffee Bits ½ cup chopped pecans or raisins (optional) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 11x7x2inch baking pan. Beat sugar, brown sugar and apple pie spice in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed until mixed well. Remove two tablespoons of the mixture and set aside. Add butter to mixing bowl and mix well; add eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl and add

and a stack of iceberg lettuce for wrapping it all up. It’s a contrast in cool and crunchy with warm and salty and it makes for messy, juicy eating that requires extra napkins. Our favourite dish of all though was the Rendang Beef Curry, a creamy coconut-infused curry swimming with carrots, celery and green beans, plus thick wedges of beef that had been slowly simmered until it fell apart at the touch of our forks. Dessert was included with our lunch; it changes daily. We guessed ours was mango tapioca, but were surprised to find out it was pumpkin, softly sweet, with chewy pearls of tapioca. Talk about an adventure in dining — you could return to 2S repeatedly and try something brand-new each time. Perhaps best of all, it was affordable. Lunch specials are $7.50, but we ordered from the regular menu and left with enough food for dinner too.

Rocket looks a little bit like a younger relative of Harry, of Harry the Dirty Dog fame, although he has his own personality. He is eager and earnest and a real keener in the classroom. The illustrations in this oversize offering are charming and gently humorous and help to reveal the happy-golucky student’s relationship with his dedicated teacher. Rocket’s joy in reading is aptly depicted in several double-page illustrations. His “waggy tail” shows he is clearly planning on continuing to develop his newfound skill and he and his teacher have become fast friends at the end of the story. Give this to the new reader in your home or classroom. Some other books to do with reading and school are as follows:

Adventure girl CHILDREN’S book author Darlene Foster meets with readers in Horseshoe Bay at Lalli Loves It!, Starfire’s in-store boutique, to sign copies of her books, Amanda in Spain and Amanda in Arabia. The chapter books chronicle the travel adventures of 12-year-old Amanda Ross.

Help your teen prepare for his next step in life From page 23

When kids are around 12 years old it’s a good idea to let them know what the expectations will be after they finish high school. If they are older and have dropped out, you can still have this conversation. My advice is to let your children know that while they are students you will support them. Once they are finished with their studies, it’s time to get a job. Young adults who are living at home are just that — adults, no longer kids. Adults are expected to pay room and board. They are also to do their share of the work needed to maintain a home. This goes further than simply chores. It’s now time for them to become involved in home repairs, laundry, cooking, food shopping and cleaning. In other words, they help with whatever is needed on a daily basis. In this way you are not only recognizing that they are now living as adults, they are learning the skills they will need to become independent and be out on their own. When you tell your younger kids about this, it’s easy. It’s just letting them look forward to the next step in their life. In the same way you talk to them about going to high school, you mention the step beyond graduation. When your child has already dropped out the challenge is to present this information in a matter-of-fact way so that it’s not a punishment but instead simply an expectation. A child who has dropped out has a reason and needs your support but he also needs to understand the realities of his choice.

NORTH Vancouver’s Spencer Watt makes an acrobatic play against the Montreal Alouettes earlier this season. The Windsor secondary grad is putting up some nice numbers for Toronto in his second CFL season.

Watt catching on to CFL North Van receiver hopes to push Argos past Lions Andy Prest aprest@nsnews.com

BACK-TO-BACK CFL ACTION B.C. @ Toronto Friday, Sept. 2 4:30 p.m. PST Toronto @ B.C. Saturday, Sept. 10 1 p.m. PST Final Lions game at Empire Stadium

THE B.C. Lions begin a critical home and home series against the Argonauts Friday in Toronto and North Vancouver’s Spencer Watt will be there hoping to catch some of the action. Growing up a Lions fan watching the likes of Paris Jackson and Geroy Simon perform, you’d think the Windsor secondary grad would be cheering on the Leos like any good B.C. boy would. But that’s not the case at all — he’ll be the one trying to put a dagger into B.C.’s up-and-down season. Now in his second year as a receiver in the CFL, Watt is an emerging non-import star for the Argos who currently ranks fifth on the team in catches and yards. He’ll be in the starting lineup Friday at Rogers Centre as well as the return game Sept. 10, the final CFL game to be played at the temporary Empire Stadium before the Lions move back to BC Place. “It’s weird growing up watching the B.C. Lions and now I’m playing against them, at home,” Watt told the North Shore News in a phone interview from Toronto Monday. Both B.C. and Toronto have struggled to start the season and both are battling to stay out of the basement in their respective conferences while also working to stay ahead of each other in the event there is an opportunity to make the CFL’s six-team playoffs as a crossover team. “Any game that you win is crucial because the season is only 18 games. But in our current situation being 2-6 and B.C. being 2-6 also, if we can come out with two wins over top of B.C. it’ll be a huge game changer.” The B.C. faithful will be out in full force for Empire’s last game but there will be a sizeable section rooting for Watt too — at least 60 family and friends already bought tickets, said Watt, and that doesn’t include his old North Vancouver Minor Hockey team that is having a reunion that weekend and planning to attend the game and throw a tailgate party in Watt’s honour. Watt grew up watching football at BC Place but the open-air magic of Empire made an impression on him when the Argos visited last year. “I like the atmosphere at the stadium, I like how the fans are right close to the bench. . . . It’s good to know that there’s a lot of history behind that stadium even though it’s not the actual Empire Stadium but the rebuilt one.” While Watt may know a bit about the history of the game here, he doesn’t have a very long history of his own with the sport.

Growing up playing hockey and basketball, Watt didn’t try football until Grade 12 when a classmate told him the team needed another receiver. Watt showed up to practice and went on to help lead Windsor secondary to a AA provincial title. After high school came an unsatisfying stint with Minot State University in North Dakota before he came back to B.C. to help turn Simon Fraser from a perennial loser into a championship contender. Though he didn’t put up eye-popping stats at SFU the Argos liked what they saw from Watt at a scouting combine and made him a third round draft choice in the spring of 2010. All of Watt’s receiving yards combined from high school through university and into a year-and-a-half of pro football would not add up to the CFL single season record of 2,036 yards set by Allen Pitts. His lack of experience has made for a steep learning curve but Watt has taken it all in stride. “Last year I came in as a rookie, didn’t really get too much playing time but I worked my way up,” he said. “This is a year really to judge how I play up against all these pros and see if I can hang with all these players. So far, so good — it could be a lot See Lions page 32

WATT and his Toronto teammates will take on the B.C. Lions in a home-and-home series starting Friday.

WEST Vancouver’s Helen Crofts finished sixth in the 800-m final in track and field at the Summer Universiade, falling shy of the podium at Shenzhen Universiade Center Stadium in Shenzhen, China Aug. 18. TheSimonFraserUniversity student started with a fast opening lap but faded on lap 2, posting a time of 2:04.40, two seconds off her semifinal time in the event. “It’s been a long season and my legs were just tired, this was a really fast group of girls who are gearing up for the World Championships,” Crofts said in a Canadian Interuniversity Sport press release. “I’m happy to have competed here, and I really hope that I have the opportunity to come back and compete again (at a Universiade).” Crofts, a West Vancouver secondary grad, is entering her senior year at SFU. In her junior year she broke the NAIA indoor 800-m record and was named SFU female athlete of the year. North Vancouver’s Julie Seabrook also made the trip to China, helping the Canadian women’s basketball team to a sixth-place finish at the Universiade, the team’s best finish in the tournament since 2001. The Canadian women finished with a 3-3 record in the tournament, losing to Australia in the quarterfinals and Russia in the fifth-sixth game, their second loss to Russia in the tournament. Canada registered wins over Poland and Finland as well as a default win over no-shows South Africa. “I’m really proud of the girls. I think overall we had a very good tournament. We beat the teams we were supposed to beat,” said Team Canada and University of Saskatchewan head coach Lisa Thomaidis in a CIS press release. “It was hard for us to play the Russians twice. They are so imposing physically, they have four players over six-footfive, including one who’s sixfoot-nine. They are a team that expected to be in the final.” Seabrook is entering her senior year at the NCAA’s University of Colorado.

Lions, Argos battle two weeks straight From page 31

Spin control CANADA’S Max Xia competes in the cadet division at the International Table Tennis Federation’s Double Fish 2011 Canadian Junior & Cadet Open held Aug. 18-21 at the Capilano University Sportsplex.

better but I’m young to the game.” Watt has already surpassed his reception and yardage totals from last season in just seven games this year but he still feels like he has a lot to learn. “I still feel like a rookie,” he said. “All of the other receivers still see me as like a rookie. There’s always that room for improvement. I’m still young, I’m still looking to have that breakout game this year like I had last year. We’ll see what happens.” The breakout game he’s referring to was the last game of the 2010 regular season when Watt torched Montreal — who would go on to win the Grey Cup three weeks later — for six catches and 140 yards with two touchdowns. “That’s what I needed,” said Watt. “I needed that for a confidence boost, I just needed it to see where I was at and if I could actually play and be a playmaker among all these other players. All these players are fast, they’re quick, they’re playmakers, they know the game.” His goal over the next few seasons is to establish himself as a go-to Canadian receiver who can be mentioned alongside other established stars such as Saskatchewan’s Andy Fantuz — currently trying out for the Chicago Bears — and longtime Lions staple Paris Jackson, himself a North Vancouver product who is battling through injury and a lack of playing time this season. “I want to establish myself as one of those top Canadian receivers but right now I’ve got a long way to go,” he said, adding that he does not know Jackson personally but has appreciated the Carson Graham grad’s game for a long time. “I always used to watch him,” he said. “It kind of inspires you to be a better player because you know that Canadian players can actually play in this CFL.” Watt, however, would like nothing more to sink the Lions further down the standings. The Argos play B.C. twice in a row followed by a matchup with Saskatchewan, the other Western team that is sitting near the bottom of the league. “The three next games are really crucial, we’re kind of taking it as playoffs,” said Watt. If he and they Argos have their way they could have Lions fans shedding a few tears about more than just the end of the second Empire era.

DICKENSON, Alistair Frederick Following a gracious life and a peaceful death, the family of Alistair Frederick Dickenson announces his passing in Vancouver on August 8, 2011 at the age of 90. Alistair (Dick) was born on January 22, 1921 in Muir of Ord, Scotland. Following a distinguished career in the RAF Ferry Command during WWII, Dick continued for 40 years as an aviation navigator, first with the peace time RAF, then with both Canadian Pacific and Air Canada. He moved with his war bride, Lillie (nee Christie), to Vancouver in 1952. An animal lover, legendary walker, loyal friend and ever the gentleman, Dick was well loved in his Vancouver and Bowen Island communities. An only child, Dick’s passing is mourned and his life celebrated by his beloved Lil; sister-in-law, Laura Daze; brother-in-law, Charles Christie (Doreen); nephews James Christie (Janice, with Lil in B.C.); David Christie (Laurie); and nieces Janice Carrigy (Colin); and Elizabeth Irish (Joe); and greatnephews Andrew, Charles and Nicholas Christie; Alexander and Nicholas Carrigy; and Charles Irish; and countless friends across Canada and around the world. Special thanks to physicians, nurses and staff of Lion’s Gate Hospital, and to Mary, Gary and Jennifer of North Shore Hospice. Those who desire may consider a gift to the SPCA or CAWES (Bowen Island). Dick’s ashes will be privately dispersed, at his request, on Bowen Island and Muir of Ord.

Betty was a strong survivor from the start and someone to admire. Having to grow and fight for life as a premature baby in front of the fireplace in her loving parents home in Ireland to living her final days in the care of Lynn Valley Manor. We will surely miss her and her many stories of the incredible life that this extraordinary woman led. Predeceased by her husband Bob and brother Robert, survived by her two sons David and Richard, their wives Melissa and Amy, grandchildren Carter, Kennedy and Mason, sisters Joy and Anna, and brother-in-laws Des and Vernon. Many other nieces, nephews, family and friends will surely be missing her. A Memorial Service will be held to honour her memory on Friday, September 2nd, 2011 at 2:30pm at the Lynn Valley United Church, 3201 Mountain Hwy, North Vancouver. Reception to follow at the home of David and Melissa MacIntosh. If desired, in lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and/or BC Cancer Foundation. Rest peacefully.

O’NEILL, Margaret (nee Heagney) Aug. 20, 1933 - Aug. 25, 2011 Margaret, age 78, passed away peacefully Thursday evening at the North Vancouver hospice, holding her rosary and surrounded by her family. This ended her brave and courageous struggle with the breast cancer that reappeared four years ago. Margaret is survived by her husband Leo of 55 years, and her six children; Bruce (Sue), Maureen (John), Glenn (Tracey), Brenda (Mike), Shane (Melissa) and Sharon (Geoff), her 12 wonderful grandchildren, and her sisters Anne and Agnes. A loving, giving and caring wife, mother and grandmother, Margaret gave tirelessly to her church, her community, and most of all, to her family. Nothing made Margaret happier than the love represented by a full dinner table with all her immediate family. She loved to hear every detail of her children’s lives and their families, and to help them in any and every way. She was also a beloved aunt to her many nieces, nephews and their families. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church, 1360 E. 24th St., N.Van. on Saturday, September 3rd at 11am. Prayers during Friday evening Mass will be held at St. Stephen’s on Friday, September 2nd at 7pm. The family suggests donations in her name may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
