Relative arrested in alleged arson

Burned man remains in hospital James Weldon jweldon@nsnews.com

A man was hospitalized and then arrested Monday evening after burning himself while allegedly setting fire to his family’s North Vancouver home. Firefighters found the unidentified 30-year-old near a burning two-storey house at 815 East 29th Street just before 7:30 p.m. He was suffering from minor burns to his hands and smoke inhalation. Paramedics rushed the man to Lions Gate Hospital for treatment while crews set to battling the blaze, which was spreading quickly from the first floor of the wood-frame building to the second. Firefighters got the flames under control in about 20 minutes, and had fully extinguished the blaze by about 8 p.m. The house was severely damaged. North Vancouver RCMP, who had accompanied the man to hospital, took him into custody after a preliminary investigation suggested the fire had been deliberately set.

Tories introduce law and order legislation

Weston says bill tries to balance rights of victims with accused Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

THE Conservative government wasted little time in introducing its new crimefighting bill Tuesday. Called the Safe Streets and Communities Act, the bill re-introduces several pieces of crimefighting legislation that were before Parliament when the federal election was called. West Vancouver MP John Weston described the bill as an attempt to balance the rights of victims with those of people accused of crimes. Weston said in most of the cases brought to his

attention, victims feel they have few rights in the justice system compared to criminals. “I see this as a response to what Canadians want,” he said. Weston spoke of one case in his riding where the parents of a child who had been murdered as an infant feared they would not be permitted to speak at the killer’s parole hearing because of glitches in the current system. Minister of Justice Rob Nicholson who introduced the bill said the measures are intended to make communities safer, by cracking down on a number of serious crimes, including child sexual offences and drug trafficking. The bill includes stiffer penalties for people who deal drugs, including marijuana. It also increases the mandatory minimum sentences for a variety of crimes, including child sexual offences. Under current laws, minimum sentences for some of those crimes are between 14 and 45 days. The new laws would bring in minimum sentences ranging from 90 days to one year in jail for several child sex crimes. It would also make providing

pornography to a child in a practice commonly referred to as “grooming” for a sex crime illegal. If passed, the new laws would also take away the ability of judges to allow criminals to serve their sentences under house arrest for a number of additional serious crimes, including luring a child, kidnapping and theft over $5,000. The laws would also increase the time a person must wait before applying to be pardoned for a crime from three years to five years for less serious crimes and from five years to 10 years for more serious ones. Some cases would no longer be pardoned. Weston said the crime bill is “not an attempt to become a repressive society.” He noted there would be exemptions to some of the minimum sentences for drug offences if the offender was in a drug treatment program, for instance. “It’s important to know we’re not throwing away the important compassion Canadians have . . . for perpetrators. We’re just trying to bring these rights and privileges into balance,” he said.

Not everyone is convinced the laws need changing. Dave Walsoff, a criminal defence lawyer on the North Shore, said statistics all point to an aging population and a drop in the crime rate. Walsoff said the new get-tough-on-crime measures “reek of fear mongering.” “Show us the empirical evidence this is needed,” he said. “We live in one of the safest communities in the world.” Yet Walsoff said most people are still convinced that crime is out of control. He added mandatory minimum sentences take away from judicial independence and are likely to result in more cases being taken to trial, clogging up the courts. “The government has to be prepared to put their money where their mouth is,” he said — and that means more judges, more prosecutors and more jails. It’ll also mean more business for lawyers, he said. “It’s short-sighted,” he said. “You wonder where they are getting their advice from.”

Tourist attraction proposed

Streetcars desired for Phibbs-W. Van Benjamin Alldritt balldritt@nsnews.com

WHEN it comes to getting around on the North Shore, City of North Vancouver Coun. Bob Fearnley desires a revisiting of the streetcars of the community’s past.

Fearnley said during some of his consulting work for the City of Vancouver, he realized the potential value of streetcars in North Vancouver. “There’s a long history in the Lower Mainland and on the North Shore. Basically we were communities that started up along streetcar lines,” he said. Fearnley said automobile companies conspired to kill off that mode of transport. “If we hadn’t made that decision we’d probably be further ahead,” he said. Buses, he said, aren’t any fun. People ride them out of a sense of duty or economics. Electric streetcars are also more environmentally friendly, quieter, and would be “community-defining,” Fearnley argued, advocating a service that would run from Phibbs Exchange to Dundarave. “It is practical.” he insisted. “A lot of people think Translink See Fearnley page 5

family fear the animal could again be suffering mistreatment. “It’s just a horrific scenario for a family’s pet,” said Towning. “I am definitely angry.” Towning’smother-in-law,HildegardGehrigerofWestVancouver, adopted the six-year-old cat they named Munch, as a family pet from the West Vancouver SPCA in May of 2010. “It had a sweet demeanour,” said Towning. “He was a very loving cat.” Munch’s easygoing nature was in spite of a very dark history when he was one of 70 cats owned by Delta resident Cary Ulmer, who left them neglected, ill and lying in their own feces in a garage. Officers from the B.C. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals raided Ulmer’s home in October 2009 after receiving complaints about possible neglect from both an employee of a veterinarian’s clinic and a woman who worked in Ulmer’s home. An SPCA report at the time detailed 70 cats discovered locked in a garage in overcrowded kennels or travel cases, some of them lying on top of each other and many without food, clean water, litter or bedding. The cats showed signs of long-term neglect and most were emaciated, distressed and in poor health because of infections. SPCA officers seized most of the cats from Ulmer, who fought the case all the way to the B.C. Court of Appeal which eventually rejected her appeal.

Meanwhile, the SPCA took care of the animals and eventually adopted them out to other families. One of those cats was Munch, who won over his new West Vancouver family with his easygoing nature. “He was very calm,” said Downing. “We just wanted a family pet.” Munch lived as an inside cat in his new home for more than a year. But in August, when one of Gehriger’s grandchildren was visiting, a door was accidentally left open and Munch escaped. The family searched the neighbourhood and turned up no signs of the pet. They were later relieved to discover the missing Munch had been turned in to the West Vancouver SPCA. But that quickly turned to shock when they were told the cat had been returned to Ulmer — the person still registered as the owner with the electronic database attached to Munch’s ear tattoo. When the SPCA contacted Ulmer, who now lives in Langley, and asked her to return the cat, she refused. Instead, she said she had given the cat to her ex-fiancé, a man who lives on the same property where the 70 cats were originally seized. It’s now been seven weeks, said Downing, and the family is heartbroken wondering what kind of conditions their pet is now living in. Downing said he’s been to both Ulmer’s home in Langley and her ex-boyfriend’s home in Delta to try to talk to them directly, without success. “I know (Munch) is probably locked in the garage again,” said Downing. Lori Chortyk, manager of community relations for the B.C.

SPCA, described the mix-up as “a really unfortunate case” that has never happened before to the animal welfare agency. Chortyk said it’s up to new owners of pets to ensure the information regarding their pets is up-to-date in the electronic registry. But she also acknowledged shelter staff usually do a check of the owners photo submitted to ensure there are no problems before handing an animal MUNCH the cat has put on over. This time, a new shelter weight since its rescue. employee didn’t do that. Chortyk said because there are no allegations of current mistreatment, the SPCA has no authority to go in and seize the cat. So the case has been handed to the Delta police, who are treating it as a theft. Chortyk said she’s still hopeful the case can be resolved. “We need Ms. Ulmer to do the right thing,” she said. Two weeks ago, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ordered Ulmer to pay the B.C. SPCA $97,000 for costs of veterinary care for the 70 cats seized from her home. The SPCA is now in the process of tying to collect that money. Neither Ulmer or her ex-boyfriend could be reached for comment.

congratulations to... Library Leads With LEED

The West Vancouver Memorial Library has received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification in Canada Existing Building: Operations and Maintenance, making it the first building in British Columbia and the first library in Canada to receive the award. It began as a staff-led grassroots effort in 2006. Small actions such as turning off fixtures and equipment when not in use, recycling, and reusing materials became infectious. The Library Board supported it with a Green Buildings Operation Policy and a bid for LEED certification. Over the last five years, the Library’s electric consumption dropped 34 per cent, gas consumption 42 per cent, and water 68 per cent. A sustainable purchasing policy and recycling program means a third less solid waste. Please visit westvanlibrary.ca to find out more.

On Thursday, West Vancouver Chief Const. Peter Lepine announced that after reviewing the findings of his force’s five-month probe of the incident, he had concluded Prince George officers had been acting within the law when they stunned the child last April. He did not release any further detail, however, leaving such questions as whether the boy was armed unanswered. The gaps in the account touched off a flurry of questions from media and the public, according to the force. On Friday, Lepine put out a follow-up statement acknowledging this. “It’s clear that there is tremendous public appetite to know more about this file, and that there was some disappointment at the limited information my team and I have released so far,” he said. “I am asking the public to understand the delicate position that my team and I are in with respect to releasing more detailed information.”

The chief explained that while he supported “the public’s right to know,” he had to balance that with the need to protect the child and the integrity of investigations by the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP and B.C.’s representative for children and youth that are still underway. “My team and I are currently consulting with other authorities and stakeholders to make sure we strike the right balance,” said Lepine. “I intend to post an update . . . as soon as those consultations are complete, which I hope will be within the next week.” The incident unfolded at about 5:30 p.m. April 7 when someone reported that a youth had allegedly wounded a 37-year-old man with a sharp weapon in a Prince George home. Mounties arrived a short time later to find the victim bleeding and the suspected attacker gone. The officers eventually tracked the boy to a neighbouring house, where they coaxed him outside. When he emerged, he was tasered. As has become common practice in police incidents in recent years, the RCMP called in a municipal force — in this case West Vancouver’s — to investigate, the idea being that officers from a separate organization would be less likely to be suspected of bias.

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

End of the line I

N a perfect world, a streetcar service connecting North Vancouver’s utilitarian but depressing Phibbs Exchange with West Vancouver’s quaint and quirky community of Dundarave would be packed with tourists flinging cash out of the windows at local businesses. Unfortunately for Coun. Bob Fearnley’s idea, startup costs in today’s environment of fiscal prudence make it a non-starter. Municipal, regional and provincial coffers are filled by the same taxpayers who are already turning white from blood loss and have no appetite for underwritingTransLink’scurrentplans to expand service. For this concept to be taken seriously, a private benefactor willing to pay the infrastructure costs is necessary. Monday night’s City of North Vancouver council meeting

made no mention of such backers. Then there is the congestion issue. East-west traffic on the North Shore — especially at the Marine Drive level — gets more difficult by the month and will continue to get worse. Additional residential development is planned in Lynnmour/Second Narrows, Lower Capilano and Park Royal. We know it is likely in Lower Lonsdale, Mosquito Creek, Harbourside, Ambleside Park and Ambleside. Surely we are not going to add rails to the road on a corridor that is already choked to breaking point. We would be far more supportive of an idea previously discussed by city council about running North Vancouver’s restored Streetcar No. 153 along a short rail line, perhaps connecting Mosquito Creek and the shipyards.

Bus lane markings designed to confuse

Dear Editor: Users of the Lions Gate Bridge have, for the past two years, had to tolerate major inconveniences of traffic as a new bridge was built over the Capilano River and lane reconstructions at the Lions Gate Bridge interchange took place to allow for dedicated bus lanes. I am truly dismayed with some of the results of this $34million expenditure. I think the dedicated bus lane east of McDonalds on Marine Drive is excellent and the best part of the design. It allows buses to directly access Taylor Way and then the crossover signal escorts the buses to the outside lane where they have quick and direct access to Lions Gate Bridge. However, my greatest criticism is levelled at the dedicated bus lane along the south side of Park Royal, to the west of McDonalds. I consider this is an unsafe situation. The layout of the dedicated bus lane, from where it starts just after the SPCA road entrance, has a series of dashed line entrances to allow you to cross the bus lane and enter your desired Park Royal entrance. I consider this extremely dangerous. The drivers have to look back in their blind spot whilst in a busy lane to see if there are any potential traffic conflicts, then duck into the

entrance being sought at an angle. For seniors (very numerous in West Vancouver) this could be especially confusing. I suggest that the current dedicated bus lane west of McDonald’s should be eliminated as a dedicated bus lane and shared with cars as a right turn lane for its respective entrances into South Park Royal. This move would protect the turning vehicles from the mainstream of Marine Drive traffic but being less used would give buses an almost dedicated lane, particularly in the morning rush hour before Park Royal opens. This would be eminently safer and I suggest safety should be the paramount consideration in any traffic movement. The new Capilano River Bridge is deficient in lane capacity, left turn traffic into South Park Royal at Taylor Way is already backing up into the new outer westbound lane on the new bridge. Heading west between Tatlow Avenue and Capilano Road in North Vancouver, the road lines take an abrupt offset to the left before Garden Avenue, presumably to allow for a dedicated buslane — these are confusing and hard to respond to, and this will be especially so on a dark night in the rain. Once again particularly hard for seniors. Nigel Grant West Vancouver

Dear Editor: I recently received my first pension cheques from the Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security. I am a baby boomer and after a lifetime of service in private industry, I can tell you that the amount of money I am getting after that lifetime, will not keep me alive. There is no such thing as retirement in privateindustry.Ihavetocontinueworkingand making extra money because the government is taking every cent away from me with one hand that it is paying to me from the other. Only public service pensions will actually keep you alive. In public service, you can serve in the military, retire, then run for office, retire, then run again, retire, and then get to run B.C. Ferries and get special pensions. My dad worked for Victoria Machinery Depot to build B.C.’s ferries. He got Canada Pension. David Hahn worked to destroy the ferries and he gets a quarter million dollars a year. After only six years! At the end of my 42 years of work and

service including two years in the RCAF, I am a veteran and virtually bankrupt. I owe nothing, but cannot live on government fees. When my parents retired in the early ’80s, they could easily live off the income from their pensions. In fact one parent’s pension income was enough to pay for the house taxes, cable, hydro, water, phone, gas and groceries. With both of them there was enough to save and give gifts to children and grandchildren on their birthdays and Christmas. When I look at my disposable income after the government takes their fees and taxes, they are taking more than I earned in an entire lifetime of work. I have been made one of their slaves for life. I am now chronicling my life as a pensioner. The province wants input on senior problems. I can tell you that the next generation is totally screwed and there will be massive abuse. Leo Vanderbyl North Vancouver

Debate is good, but repeat what I said correctly Dear Editor: Paul Hundal’s Sept. 18 letter on garbage burning (EFW) misstates my positions in my Sept. 4 letter, a disappointing tactic in addressing a current issue. I did not refer to any “environmental

report,” nor did I discuss particulates. I did not claim barbecues are worse than EFW, only that barbecues and fireworks also emit dioxins. John Hunter North Vancouver

Stop milking the taxpayer

“If they build residential, they are going to profit hugely by that. Why should the city have to pay for that work?” Coun. Bob Fearnley, Sept. 12, 2011

CITY of North Vancouver Coun. Bob Fearnley was speaking to council’s consideration of Concert Properties’ reincarnation of its Harbourside development proposal that, as Benjamin Alldritt described in the News on Sept. 14, has been underway since June 2009. Discussion of the terms of reference for the task force council had approved in July raised two serious issues for anyone who favours an unbiased process: Alldritt’s story highlighted the first issue — conflict of interest — in a quote from Coun. Rod Clark who said, “ . . . I certainly wouldn’t support approaching the developer for the money to support a staff person to conduct this (task force) work.” The second issue — task force bias — was revealed by Fearnley’s blithe confidence that conflict of interest would not be a problem because, “Staff will influence what direction that task force takes. . . .” The online Business Dictionary definition of a task force reads: “(A) temporary group of people formed . . . to solve a problem that requires a multi-disciplinary approach.” So what is the point of anyone paying $60,000, or any amount, for a Harbourside task force if staff is going to “influence” the committee to take the direction the city wanted all along? Is that how things work? Does that explain an earlier vote which saw some city councillors approve a $1million contribution to Port Metro Vancouver’s design work for realignment of the Low Level Road — a donation

Just Asking

Elizabeth James PMV will repay only if council approves the project? Perceptions notwithstanding, and likely to Harbourside’s chagrin, Coun. Guy Heywood succeeded in his motion to defer further discussion until Jan. 2012 when a new council will inherit the hot potato. Next up on Sept. 12, District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton broke a 3-3 tie to approve going forward with yet another garbage-related tax — an initiative scheduled for city and West Vancouver council discussion on Sept. 19. As is increasingly the case, the idea came from Metro. It followed the urging of Encorp Pacific — the Campbell government’s de facto monopoly recycler — and a letter from Delta’s Mayor Lois Jackson, chairwoman of the Metro Vancouver Board, to B.C. environment minister Terry Lake. Euphemistically described by Allen Lynch, manager of the North Shore Recycling Program, as a “depositrefund” recycling diversion initiative, Metro wants a levy to be imposed on all milk and milk-substitute containers to encourage an “increase in the diversion rate in keeping with the Metro Vancouver Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan.” The charge would be reimbursed upon return of the containers to a recycling depot. Claiming the initiative would have no financial impacts, Lynch’s background report to council claims, “There would be little or no

impact on social policy.” No financial or social policy impacts? Not for him, perhaps. But as Kerry Blackadar reported in this paper Sept. 16, Coun. Roger Bassam begged to differ. “What this equates to is creating a massive inconvenience for the consumer, which then turns into a tax.” Never mind, just so long as Encorp is happy. Taxpayers, however, may be ready to petition councils for a redesignation of what used to be garages, carports and sheds to tax-exempt “personal environmental recycling collection stations” — PERCS for short. What happened to Walton’s Swedish-style vision of a single, multi-item recycling station? Didn’t taxpayers fund that trip? Instead of that attractive idea, hundreds of vehicles drive all over the district dropping off empties at Changes, bottle depots and the transfer station. Rollout of the 360-litre Schaefer carts began around 1990, ostensibly to semiautomate collection and ease wear and tear on workers’ backs. The next decree was that carts could only be filled to within eight inches of the lid; then half-full and then to the current two-bags only. Along the way, the bluebox/blue-bag/yellow-bag

system was introduced and, in 2006, sale of the 360-litre carts was discontinued. Voluntary recycling increased. Opposition from property-owners was minimal, despite the fact that wastecollection charges rose in lockstep with decreased service. This time, however, milking the taxpayer takes on a new meaning. The need to balance municipal budgets we understand; but people get antsy when they see 80 per cent of those budgets spent on salaries and benefits while quality of service declines. The nickel and diming has to stop — especially for those who live below the poverty line, for that hidden population of British Columbians known to us only as “the working poor,” and for seniors. Talking of seniors, I can end on a positive note should West Vancouver council look favourably on a Kiwanis proposal to replace its current five-building, ancient seniors’ complex with a two-building, five-storey Garden Village. Assuming Kiwanis can address height concerns, and the fire department is OK with five-storey wood-frame construction, the Village would not only be attractive and functional, it would add a much-needed 86 units to the available housing stock for low-income seniors. rimco@shaw.ca

RESIDENTS of East 29th Street that connects Upper Lonsdale with Lynn Valley say 80 per cent of the traffic on the street speeds.

Residents tell city speeders scare them

Staff to report on traffic control options for East 29th Street Benjamin Alldritt balldritt@nsnews.com

A tragic accident is only a matter of time, say residents, unless something is done to reduce speeding on East 29th Street.

Gwen Elliott led a delegation of residents to City of North Vancouver council Sept. 12. Over the past four years, Elliott said, “I’ve watched traffic increase in both volume and speed to an alarming level.” She thanked city engineering staff for repainting the 50-km/h speed limit on the road surface, but said it hadn’t really deterred speeding. Temporary flashing signs and RCMP enforcement had helped, she said, but speeds returned to normal after they were removed. “We understand that East 29th is a muchused thoroughfare between Lonsdale and Lynn Valley,” Elliott told councillors. “We are not expecting that the traffic disappear. However, what we do expect is a level of safety.” Elliott said it is extremely difficult to park in her driveway or even safely cross the street given the speeding traffic and poor visibility. Drivers who do slow for pedestrians, she said, are frequently abused by other drivers, who swerve around them at speed. She and her neighbours had witnessed several near misses, Elliott said, and gestured towards a boy in the council audience. “We had a terrifying incident with this little boy . . . Christian was coming out of his house and we all waved at each other . . . he just ran right out into the street and the car coming up didn’t see him and she slammed on the brakes. He burst into tears. I screamed. It was

terrifying. “I know this could happen on any street but I’m not exaggerating when I say that 80 per cent of the cars who travel on that street would not have been able to stop in time.” Elliott asked for physical changes to the road, such as a traffic light, medians or corner bulges. Coun. Mary Trentadue said she could support a pedestrian-controlled traffic light, but asked staff what they thought the most effective options were. Assistant city engineer Dragana Mitic said corner bulges to the sidewalk were proven to reduce speeding and made crossing easier. “I don’t want to be here when something happens,” said Coun. Rod Clark. “East 29th is a four-lane designated major arterial road. I’m telling you it’s become a secondary highway . . . It’s not acceptable to turn a blind eye to this situation.” Clark said a stop sign would be a fast way to curb speeding and provide a safe crossing. He recalled opposing a stop sign on East 19th, but was later convinced it was effective. Clark also called for an increased RCMP presence and liberal use of vehicle impounding. Coun. Bob Fearnley worried that a stop sign would create a false sense of security and said city staff should study the street more closely. “Of course we want to look like we’re doing something,” he said, “particularly in a election year. What’s going to happen is people are just going to blow through the stop sign.” Council unanimously directed staff to look into building a traffic light and other measures, and to invite the District of North Vancouver to participate in the work.

Register for Whistler municipal vote

THE Resort Municipality of Whistler will not open a polling station in West Vancouver this November.

The North Shore polling station was established for voters who don’t live in Whistler but who own property there, making them legally allowed to vote in Whistler’s municipal races. In the 2008 election, 170 people voted for Whistler candidates at the West Vancouver polling station out of a total of 2,865 votes. This year, that’s been replaced by a mail-in ballot, requiring voters to register by Sept. 27. A mail-in ballot similar to the HST ballot will be

mailed in early November. “We anticipate getting quite a number more people voting. There are estimates of 500 to 1,500 potential voters who could use the mailin ballots,” said Lonny Miller, the municipality’s chief electoral officer. While the West Vancouver station provided a foothold in the Lower Mainland, Miller said the mail-in option will allow property owners to take part even if they winter in another country. Registration can be done online at www. whistler.ca, by clicking “Municipal Elections” under the “Municipal Hall” tab. — Tessa Holloway

Kerry Blackadar newsroom@nsnews.com

DISTRICT of North Vancouver councillors are worrying over financial constraints that could affect the William Griffin/ Delbrook Community recreation centre replacement project.

“This project will be limited by our financial parameters and our financial capacity,” said Coun. Robin Hicks, reminding attendees at NEWS photo Cindy Goodman the Sept. 12 council meeting of the current economic PAYING for a pool in a rebuilt community centre on the William Griffin site in environment under which the addition to incorporating the activities currently handled at the Delbrook rec centre will be built. centre will make it expensive to build. Community consultation is promised. Based on preliminary assessments and discussion, the new centre, a proposed 81,000 “To open up the discussion to the public and to raise their square-foot facility set to be constructed on the current William expectations about what’s going to be available at the new Griffin site, will likely include a swimming pool and courts for William Griffin recreation centre, without them know what the racquetball and squash. The centre may also host childcare and cost implications will be, is — to my way of thinking — the childminding services, the activities of Capilano Community wrong way to do it.” According to Coun. Lisa Muri, the inclusion of a pool will Services Society, as well as other community services, such as serve as the largest financial consideration when it comes to community policing. Though the goal of last week’s discussion was to clarify budgeting for the new centre. “That will be a big difference in how the cost is going to be the program and space plans for the new centre, cost quickly became the topic of central debate. Couns. Doug MacKay- allocated,” she said, expressing confidence that the community Dunn and Alan Nixon made recommendations to ensure that will have a say in the matter. The next step of the planning process is to develop a more the public was made aware of the potential cost of programs detailed program and space plan, and look into corporate and services. “I am glad we are doing what we are doing, but it should sponsorship and government grant opportunities to assist with have had some gross dollars attached to it,” said Nixon. the design and costing stage of the replacement project.

box. Use small adhesive stickers to add to the packaging and finish off with a pretty ribbon. Monogrammed gifts Next time you are in your local craft store pick up a few pre-cut, wood letters in the wood section. You may have a few of these from finished craft projects around the home. These are wonderful for painting or leaving in their natural state and tied to a pretty, wrapped gift. Match the letter to the recipient’s first name. Chalkboard paint I love this product. This is

one of the most versatile things in the home. Use it to paint on small, wood tags or miniature frames. When the paint has completely dried simply write the recipient’s name on the tag. This paint is also wonderful for painting on the inside of a kitchen cupboard as a memo board for the family. Find it at your local paint store or craft outlet. Buckets, boxes, crates There are so many creative ways to wrap a gift awaiting your discovery in your kitchen cupboards. Cookie tins are

wonderful when finished off in a complementary ribbon. Buckets can be filled with household cleaners and cloths as a “new homeowner” gift. Use small Tupperware containers for homemade cookies as a hostess gift. Finish off with some raffia tied with the recipe for the cookies. Sometimes it’s necessary to think outside the box when it comes to wrapping a gift. The fun is in how creative you can be to surprise and amaze your gift recipient. lunter@shaw.ca

LearnNowBC offers support for parents, kids

Digital Age

Steve Dotto HAPPY new year everyone!

It is September, and I have this peculiar form of dyslexia. I constantly transpose September for January. This has always been the beginning of a new year for me, far more so than January ever is. I guess

Now the challenge becomes that much more severe. In a community where we place such high expectation and responsibility on our education system, one would think we would find a way to support it financially, but that is another post for another time. The burden of educating our kids has to be shared —

it began with the start of a new school year, and once I graduated, most businesses look at the fall as their most important quarter, so somehow it seems like a new year. Mostly, though, it is the beginning of a new school year. Anyone who has heard me speak knows I have a particular interest and passion for our education system. It is a system in transition as the leaders of that community struggle to come to terms with the impact technology is having on how kids learn, and how teachers teach. Now, here in B.C., we layer that groundwork of change, and place an economic struggle over top (teachers’ union, no contract, and work to rule).

by parents and schools — yet with so many dual-income families, supporting our kids in their academic pursuits is beyond many of our means. There is one resource that stands out in this province. It is LearnNowBC.ca. This is an education portal designed specifically to support not just teachers and students, but also parents in B.C.

When we look at all the cutbacks currently underway in our schools, LearnNow is a breath of fresh air. If is free for all, and chock full of resources we can all use to help our kids. There are resources for preschoolers, with early learning software free to help transition your toddlers to kindergarteners, course

outlines, study guides, practice tests, and much more. Two resources I think we all should be aware of are the online courses and tutoring that are supported through LearnNowBC. If your child is looking for a course not available in your

It seems last winter was hard on many plants in the garden, including larch, several shrubs and some trees. I ask him: What do you do when a significant plant is lost from the collection? He tells me, “We always have backups either elsewhere in the garden, in the nursery or at other collaborating botanical gardens. When we obtain new plants we grow multiples and spread them around our network.” The UBC garden collaborates with other botanical gardens across North America in plant conservation, collection, research and education.

PARENTING

Pack kids off to school with a litterless lunch ASK any child today about the 3Rs and instead of Reading, ’Riting and ’Rithmatic they are likely to say Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

NEWS photo Cindy Goodman

AN assortment of reusable lunch containers are available at North Van-based online store www.moojoes.com.

Kids have grown up understanding the need to reduce the amount of garbage we produce, to protect the environment and to compost. Parenting Today And yet, we go into stores Kathy Lynn and aisle after aisle, product after product is designed to produce garbage. There are all kinds of ways we can engage our children to become aware of how to become more ecologically responsible. And one easy place to start is with lunch. Lunch bags, food wrappings, serviettes and drink containers can all be reused with just a little planning and thought. There is a range of lunch bags on the market. They come in all sizes and shapes so you need to consider the needs of your child. You may want to use an insulated bag to keep food hot or cold or you may prefer to use a cold pack to keep sandwiches cool and a thermos for hot foods. When you are choosing a bag, involve your child so that he chooses one he likes. Make sure it’s easy to open and close. Velcro tends to work best for kids. You can also get bags with compartments if you are sending food for breaks and for lunch. You will need a variety of containers. Think about what an average lunch looks like for your child and choose containers accordingly. When buying containers, ensure that they are food safe. For cold food, polypropylene containers marked with #5 are food safe and don’t leach chemicals. Replace bottled water or packaged juices with drinks in their thermos. Use tap water or buy juice in larger containers and decant what they need on a daily basis. This is also true for things like applesauce or yogurt. You can have the kids decant their serving into a single serve container. It may take some time but the more you buy in bulk, the more money you can save. Stainless steel containers are another option because they are

shatterproof and lightweight. Fun and brightly coloured cloth napkins can replace paper and there are even reusable sandwich wrappers, some of which are machine-washable. Pay attention to the weight of everything you are purchasing. If the total package is too heavy, your child is more likely to put it down somewhere and forget it. There are some downsides. In case your child loses things, label them so they can be returned or easily identified in the lost and found box at school. I’m told there is a company called Lovable Labels that offers a product that is dishwasher safe. But what about time and convenience? After all, this would seem to imply making lunches from scratch rather than simply purchasing pre-packaged foods. The best answer is to involve See Enlist page 35

There is plenty to celebrate this year. Araxi restaurant celebrates its 30th anniversary with two spectacular evenings of wine and food, beginning with their world-class Winemaker Dinner, Big Guns: Icons of the Wine World on Friday, Nov. 11. Executive chef James Walt gets to pair his cooking with wines from

Plenty on tap on the N. Shore

AS Vancouver’s craftbrewing scene gets more national and international attention, you might think that places like the Alibi Room in Gastown or Central City Brewing in Surrey are the only places to get a good

pint in town. Live north of downtown, better hop on the Sea Bus, right? Well, not quite. As it turns out, there’s

Consists of 6 halibut fingers, 6 prawns & 6 hand-cut onion rings, all delicately battered and served on a platter with chips and homemade coleslaw. DINE-IN OR TAKE OUT. *PRICES SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.

many a place to slake the thirst of a parched North Vancouverite. Whether trying to find a rare brew, or just grabbing a quality pint, here’s a brief and — it must be admitted — incomplete list of the best places on the North Shore to get some craft beer. First, and closest to me, is Taylor’s Crossing. Part of the Mark James Group, Taylor’s joins the Yaletown Brewing Company and others in serving some solid pints like the Indian Arm IPA and Red Truck Pale Ale. It’s a great place to catch a game, and they also fill growlers (1.9L containers of beer) for about $15. Best yet, the Avalon cold beer and wine store has a decent selection of brews and if you sign up for a card, you can save 10 per cent off your beer bill. Further afield you can find a little gem of a liquor store

nestled in Edgemont Village. Despite a tiny storefront, the Edgemont Liquor Shoppe boasts an impressive selection of cold beers, everything from Phillips to Driftwood to beers from Saskatchewan’s Paddock Wood Brewing. Another hidden treasure can be found at The District Social near Lonsdale Quay. The cocktail menu might be tempting, but ignore it in favour of the simply enormous list of Belgian beers, or opt for some Russell Wee Angry Scottish Ale or La Chouffe on tap. Oh, and try the onion soup. It’s unbelievably good. In Upper Lonsdale, you’ll find the Queen’s Cross Pub, with a good draft list and plenty of regular customers. Venture out to Deep Cove, and there’s two hot spots. First is the Raven Pub, which hosts the occasional

food calendar

a separate Cocktail and Canapés Party. From 6 to 8:30 p.m. will be a five-course Back to the Future Dinner. Past and present chefs will create a meal that will be paired with special wines. Price is $60 for the dinner alone with an additional $15 to add the wine pairing. The restaurant will then be transformed into party central for part two of the evening — a Cocktails and Canapés Party starting at 9:30 p.m. The price of $5, which is being donated to the charity Growing Chefs, includes two drink tickets plus passed canapés and entertainment. Wild Rice Modern Chinese is located at 117 West Pender St., Vancouver. Reservations: 604-642-2882. Info: www.wildricevancouver. com.

cask night (check the CAMRA Vancouver website for the calendar). Second is the Arm’s Reach Bistro, which has a small tap list, but an impressive one: along with Stanley Park Brewing’s Noble Pilsner, you’ll find Deschutes Brewing’s Mirror Pond Pale Ale and the sublime — and hard-to-find — Backhand of God Irish Stout from Crannog Brewing. West Vancouver has many high-end wine stores with highly knowledgable staff. However, there’s only really one place to go for beer, and it might just be the best place in the Lower Mainland. The 16th Street Liquor Store is fairly unassuming when you first walk in, but the beer selection rivals that of big-name cross-town places like Brewery Creek on Main Street. What’s more, it’s cheaper, costing only about as much as a regular BCLDB outlet for mainstream brews, but offering everything up to more expensive Dogfish

Head and Mikkeller beers not found anywhere else. A special mention needs to be made of their nearly complete selection of Baird Brewing Japanese-brewed beer, and some elsewhere-sold-out rarities from Driftwood. We’ve mentioned Victoriabased Driftwood Brewing twice already, but a third repetition is in order as their Fat Tug IPA has recently been crowned “Beer of the Year” at the 2011 Canadian Brewing Awards. What better way to toast this accomplishment than by hoisting a pint of this hoppy, West-Coast champion yourself? Cheers!

Plum perfect: making the most of fall fruit

ITALIAN prune plums are plentiful and inexpensive in stores right now.

If you have a tree in your yard you’ll have bushels of fruit at your disposal. They make great snacks eaten fresh but are also terrific cooked. Here are three recipes sure to please. Choose firm or just slightly soft plums — if they’re very soft they are often rotten inside.

Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard

Plum Torte From The New Elegant But Easy Cookbook by Marian Burros and Lois Levine. By popular demand this recipe has been published in the New York Times almost every year since 1981. ½ cup butter, softened ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 eggs 1 tsp vanilla Pinch salt 12 pitted prune plums, halved 1 teaspoon cinnamon or more, to taste Preheat the oven to 350ºF and place an oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Cream the butter and the ¾ cup of

sugar. Add the flour, baking powder, eggs, vanilla and salt and beat to mix well. Spoon the batter into an ungreased nine- or 10-inch springform pan. Arrange the plums on top, skin sides down. Mix the cinnamon with the remaining two tablespoons of sugar and sprinkle over the top. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Serve plain or with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Makes eight servings.

1½ cups crushed amaretti (crisp Italian almond cookies, available in most large supermarkets) 1 cup whipping cream 1 cup mascarpone ½ cup plain yogurt 2 tbsp maple syrup 1 tsp grated orange rind Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Place plums cut side up in a small baking dish. Pour orange juice over top and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 25 minutes or until soft and very juicy. Let cool in juices; cut plum halves in half. Reserve plums and juice together. Whip cream until it holds soft peaks. Combine mascarpone, yogurt, maple syrup and orange rind and fold in whipped cream. Layer mascarpone mixture, cookies and plums with their juices into six wine glasses; top with a dollop of mascarpone mixture and a sprinkle of amaretti crumbs. Chill.

Plum Jam This jam is the most beautiful fuchsia colour — fantastic on toast, or try thinning it with a little orange juice or water and pouring over ice cream or yogurt. Use canning tongs to move jars in and out of boiling water. 4½ cups pitted, chopped

prune plums ½ cup water 7½ cups white sugar ½ teaspoon butter (optional) 1 (1.75 ounce) package powdered fruit pectin 8 half-pint canning jars with lids and rings Place the plums and water into a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to mediumlow; cover and simmer for five minutes. Stir in the sugar and add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly, and then mix in the pectin quickly. Return the jam to a full boil and boil for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; skim off and discard any foam. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least five minutes. Ladle the jam into the hot sterilized jars (a canning funnel makes this much easier), filling jars to within ¼ inch of the top. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any jam residue. Top with lids and screw on rings. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then carefully lower the jars into the pot. Leave a two-inch space between the jars; pour in more boiling water if necessary until

let cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all — refrigerate any jars that did not seal properly). Store sealed jars in a cool, dark area.

the water level is at least one inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a full boil; cover the pot, reduce heat slightly and let boil gently for 10 minutes. Remove the jars from the stockpot to a towelcovered heatproof surface and

Get pickled and win a trip to Montreal

ARE you a winning pickle maker?

Time to find out for sure. Home canners and amateur chefs are invited to submit their pickles for British Columbia’s first pickle contest this fall. Judged by a panel of food writers, chefs and “pickle experts,” the winner receives an allexpense paid, airfare included, trip for two to Montréal, dinner at Montréal’s Dunn’s Famous Restaurant Deli and pickles for life at the first western Canadian Dunn’s location in Vancouver. Dunn’s Famous Restaurant Deli — the iconic Montreal smoked meat restaurant deli — serves thousands of whole pickles everyday in their Montreal restaurants. To celebrate the opening of the first Western Canadian location at Seymour and

Robson in Vancouver, Dunn’s is holding a province-wide pickle contest. According to a recent release, the team behind Dunn’s Famous is excited about coming to B.C. and working with local suppliers to access some of the best food ingredients in the world here. Bread for the famous Montréal smoked meat sandwiches will be baked locally in Vancouver, salmon is wild B.C. of course and the all-beef hot dogs are being made for them by a local sausage maker. With that in mind, Dunn’s Famous B.C. has partnered with British Columbia farmers’ markets to bring together home canners, pickling cucumbers and local farmers. On Saturday, Oct. 1, Vancouver area pickle pros and amateurs can drop off their pickles and recipes at the Trout Lake

fresh find

Farmers’ Market in Vancouver. Pickles will be judged by more than 20 experts with the finalists invited to the grand pickle judging finale at Trout Lake Farmers’ Market on Oct. 15. Participants must register on the Great Big Pickle contest site, dunnsfamousbc. com/contest.php. The form should also accompany an original pickle recipe, along with no less than a total of 30 pickles in sealed glass jars, whole or whole spears pickling cucumbers only. The judges will remain anonymous until after Oct. 1 to ensure the integrity of the contest. Pickles will be divided into identical containers and numbered to ensure a true blind tasting before being distributed to the judges located across B.C. They will judge based on flavour, presentation, taste and texture.

the kids. Having them prepare their own lunch with some direction to make sure they cover more than one food group has real benefits. First they are helping with the work, they are learning about food preparation and they are much more likely to eat a meal they had a hand in preparing. I understand that it’s not as convenient. But it’s the right thing to do. It’s modelling caring for the planet for your kids and it means they are also having a healthier lunch. There are many ideas for litterless lunches and you may want to choose just one for starters and move forward to further ideas as you and the kids are ready. Soon, planning meals and snacks that are litterless will be second nature to both you and your children.

Carson tops Handworth in highest scoring Buchanan Bowl Andy Prest aprest@nsnews.com

THERE were no official fireworks to mark the 25th annual Buchanan Bowl Saturday but an offensive explosion lit up Confederation Field as Carson Graham defeated Handsworth in the highest-scoring game in the history of the series.

BLUES NEWS PACWEST SOCCER Sept. 17-18 WOMEN Kwantlen - 0 Capilano - 2 Douglas - 0 Capilano - 5 MEN Kwantlen - 0 Capilano - 4 Douglas - 5 Capilano - 1

WHEN Jordan Cash shows young Canadian athletes a “soccer ball” fashioned from garbage bags used by their peers in Uganda, he can tell it makes an impact.

Carson strung together big play after big play to build up a commanding 35-9 lead at halftime. In the second half the teams traded points like it was a basketball game, the clock finally running out on a 62-36 win for the Eagles. “The kids put it together,” said Carson head coach John Buchanan after the game as he tried to explain the offensive outburst. “Our quarterback is obviously very talented, we’ve got a really good group of receivers. Our running game was very strong today. We were able to keep them off balance and we capitalized.” Carson’s Isaac Birch set NEWS photo Paul McGrath the tone for the day with a 51-yard touchdown to open CARSON Graham’s Arthur Blaszccyk tracks down Handsworth’s Houtan Hodania the scoring, one of three long in Carson’s 62-36 Buchanan Bowl victory Saturday.

Birch ended the a safety touch to make it 28-9, but Lamiere found Termansen for a pretty 22-yard touchdown catch with 17 seconds left in game with nine carries for 183 yards. Next up was the Darius Lamiere and Nik Termansen show the first half to make the score 35-9 and take away hope for a as the former, a Grade 11 quarterback, picked out the latter for Handsworth comeback. The Royals, however, never let up in the second half, three touchdown strikes in the first half, including a 56-yard marching up and down the field and matching the Eagles score bomb to make the score 21-0 for Carson. Handsworth cut into the lead with a Cameron Alexander See Carson’s page 40 reception from quarterback Michael Lemoine and then added

“It resonates with them for a second: ‘They actually play with that?’ They’re a little confused but something’s triggered in there. They’re dumbfounded by that,” he says. Cash is a volunteer with OA Projects, a Vancouverbased non-profit organization that uses soccer as a means of supporting war-affected youth. A Vancouver resident, he got on board with the project two years ago when he was working on his MBA at the University of British Columbia, meeting project founder and executive director Gavin Hollett. “It’s a way to utilize the global game of soccer to bring people together across borders, across countries and empower youth,” says Cash. “One of the biggest things I find with OA is that it’s about empowering local youth, local leaders and creating a sustainable program where youth affected by war can learn about conflict management, gender equity, and those types of things, through a sport that they love.” OA goes into communities See North page 42

Carson’s balanced attack too much for plucky Handsworth From page 39 for score as each team put up 27 points in the half. Handsworth’s Alexander caught two more touchdowns, giving him three on the day, while Connor McSweeney and Rokin Wong powered in short runs for the Royals’ other scores. The Eagles, meanwhile, did it all on the ground in the second half with Birch scoring two long TDs and Cody Pitman and Bryan Hilario adding touchdown runs of their own. After the game Buchanan praised his own team’s effort while also acknowledging the spirit that Handsworth showed in continuing to battle while faced with a big deficit. “Full credit — (Handsworth) wouldn’t let up,” he said. “They moved the ball really well, they had it on the goal line a couple of times. It could have been a very different game. . . . Their defence worked hard, their offence moved the ball really well and I think we just got some lucky breaks.” Carson quarterback Lamiere is new to the school — originally from the North Shore, he spent the last two years living in San Diego — and has done a great job taking control of the offence, said Buchanan. “First and foremost, he’s a leader,” said Buchanan. “He does the extra work with the receivers, has very high expectations for what he expects of them, which is great. For a guy that’s brand-new to the school to come in and show that kind of leadership is amazing and he’s got the skills to match it.” In addition to their high flyers on offence the Eagles also lean heavily on the leadership of two-way players Nick Pankratz and Kevin

Nicholson, said Buchanan, adding that Carson’s bench is not nearly as deep as it is for some of the teams they’ll be competing against in AAA play this season. “We need to stay healthy all season,” he said. “If we do I’m pretty hopeful that we can do some good things.” Hansdworth, meanwhile, is a AA team but that doesn’t temper the rivalry that has grown in the Buchanan Bowl since it was first played in 1987. Carson now leads the series 15-10, their win this season avenging Handsworth’s thrilling 35-34 victory in 2010. As is usual at the game, the stands were packed with supporters of both schools dressed — sometimes hilariously — in school colours and yelling for their team. “It’s great — I hope the (fans) had as much fun as we did,” said Buchanan. The game is named after his late father James, who worked at both Handsworth and Carson Graham. “He was a big, big fan of high school sports,” John Buchanan said about his father. “He would absolutely love this.” ••• The final score set all kinds of Buchanan Bowl records, including: ■ Highest combined score: 98 points (previous high was 69 in 2010). ■ Highest score for a winning team: 62 for Carson (previous high was 47 by Carson in 2000). ■ Highest score for a losing team: 36 for Handsworth (previous high was 34 by Carson in 2010). Pitman, a two-way terror who plays a mean linebacker, was named the player of the game for Carson Graham while lineman Neil Courtney earned the honour for Handsworth.

North Van club takes lead role in fundraising From page 39

NEWS photo Cindy Goodman

OA Projects’ Jordan Cash and North Vancouver Football Club’s Cyndi Gerlach play with a “soccer ball” made of garbage bags by children in Uganda. The North Van club helps support OA Projects, a grassroots organization that uses soccer as a means of aiding war-affected youth.

where soccer-related infrastructure already exists and works with local youth leaders and those trying to make a difference. “It’s about improving, not replacing,” says Cash. OA — which stands for Opportunitas Aequa, Latin for equal opportunity — has worked in Ecuador and Rwanda, and is currently in northern Uganda. To support their efforts, representatives of the organization promote Play Soccer So They Can, a campaign encouraging community groups to raise funds and awareness. For the second year in a row, the North Vancouver Football Club has opted to take part, asking their members to make donations over the course of the club’s annual photo weekend. Last year, the club raised $5,300. This year’s photo weekend is set for Friday to Sunday at the Navy League Hall (16th and Forbes Avenue) in North Vancouver. “The opportunity to be able to expose children who will never ever see Uganda or these youth, to know

that they’re making a big impact I think is a valuable lesson,” says Cyndi Gerlach, the club’s community director. At this year’s event, a series of photos will be displayed showing the kids in Africa holding thank you signs recognizing the impact of the local soccer community. While North Vancouver Football Club players and their families are encouraged to bring donations when they attend this weekend’s festivities, members of the general public are also invited to drop by to offer support. The club is hoping to increase its fundraising total this year and is also challenging other North Shore soccer organizations to get involved. “Our board of directors has approved that we will be doing this annually,” says Gerlach. “If the other soccer clubs want to take that challenge on too, we’d be happy to have that friendly competition — on and off the field.” So far the West Vancouver Soccer Club has come on board. For more information on OA Projects, or to make a donation, visit www.oaprojects.org.

Neimer helped Canada claim silver in the men’s team event before earning an individual bronze on the horizontal bars. Elsewhere at the Games North Van’s Matthew Swanson had a strong showing on the track, finishing in fourth place in the men’s 800-metre race, while Nathan Yanagiya helped Canada’s rugby sevens team to a fifth-place finish in the eight-team tournament.

Kathy’s career as an educator spanned over 35 years, beginning at her old high school West Vancouver Secondary. She spent 25 years at Thompson Rivers University, most notably in the area of university preparation and adult education. She held numerous positions, culminating in her position as Dean of Student Development. She won the universal respect and admiration of both her colleagues and her students. Kathy was loyal, supportive and generous; she made people around her better for having known her. An avid, talented quilter and an enthusiastic golfer, Kathy was also a world traveller.

SHUGG - Robert Gordon Nov. 11, 1948 – Sept.13, 2011 It is with extreme sadness that the family of Rob Shugg announce his unexpected death. He is survived by his wife, Karen (nee Tilley), daughter Jenn, son David, father Gordon, sister Pam (Rick) Killam, brother Glenn (Carmel), sister-in-law Jennifer Davidson, and a wonderful extended network of family and friends. Rob grew up in North Vancouver and graduated UBC with a B.Sc.Hon. in Geophysics. His entire career was spent in the oil industry, with Mobil Oil, Poco Petroleums, Burlington Resources, and most recently Conoco Phillips. He was passionate about all things in life. He loved ocean sailing in a good wind, and the feel of powder snow under his skis. For over 20 years Rob was an active member of the Canadian Ski Patrol System, and coordinated their involvement in the 1988 Olympics. He was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in his mid-twenties, and for the remainder of his life he faced the challenges of this disease without complaint. He had a zest for life and a devoted interest in scientific research, whether for the treatment of MS or for innovative ways to look at petroleum exploration. Rob always maintained a positive outlook, and was inspirational in his proactive, self-disciplined approach to living. A part of him will be with us forever. Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W., Calgary, AB) on Friday, September 23, 2011 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

TUCKER, OWEN KYLE June 17, 1990 − Sept. 12, 2011 After a courageous lifetime battle with mental illness, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear son, brother and grandson, Owen. In addition to his family and friends, he will be sorely missed by his extended family within the mental health team and his companions at The Goodman House, where Owen resided for the past 6 months. Although Owen lived a life of isolation characterized by depression, he found great comfort with his dog Bromley, hiking the north shore trails, golfing, spending time at the family cabin, listening to music, watching movies and best of all, beating anyone at a good game of crib. Owen was a natural athlete, with soccer and track meets consuming most of his early years. If not on the field, he carved up whatever he could on the mountains and lakes… and for a little down time he was a familiar sight cruising our north shore hills on his long board. Owen is survived by his loving and supportive parents Deborah and Burke and brother Reid, grandparents Marion Tucker, (predeceased by grandfather, Hugh Tucker), Lois and Ernie Maguire, uncles Bruce, Scott, Spike and aunts, Janet and Julie along with his many cousins. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a trust fund that will be set up the next week at the Bank of Montreal (Edgemont Village) in Owen’s name to support local mental health organizations to promote awareness and to reduce the stigma. If you are interested in contributing please email bmtucker@shaw.ca and we will forward you the trust information when it is finalized. A celebration of Owen’s life will be held on Sunday, September 25 at 2:00 at Highlands United Church, 3255 Edgemont Boulevard, North Vancouver. A reception will follow immediately after the service.
