BMW hits cyclist, bursts into ﬂames Brent Richter email@example.com
WHEN a luxury car goes up against a cyclist and a tree, bet on the tree. That’s the lesson learned by a speeding West Vancouver driver Sunday when he careened off Westport Road, clipped a cyclist’s back wheel, and crashed into a tree, causing his car to burst into ﬂames. The near-deadly crash was over before its ﬁrst victim could even react. “Somebody came over that bend a little too quickly and clipped my back tire,” said cyclist Alex Dumond. “It was mostly just headlights, then loud noises and then ﬁre.” Amazingly, no one sustained more than minor injuries. Dumond, along with the 18-year-old driver and his 16-yearold passenger, was taken to Lions Gate Hospital to be treated for minor cuts and bruises. “I wasn’t too much worse for wear, but the car suffered,” said Dumond, a sailing director at the West Vancouver Yacht Club. Police estimate damage to the car, which Dumond guesses was a late-model BMW, around $20,000. The bike’s back wheel is a total loss, Dumond added. The extremely close (and costly) call should serve as a warning to others about speeding on West Vancouver’s windy roads, said the cyclist. See Cyclist page 5

WV ferry terminal revalued at $20 Jane Seyd and Jeremy Shepherd firstname.lastname@example.org
THE District of West Vancouver and the B.C. Assessment Authority are heading to court to ﬁght a recent decision that slashed the assessed value of B.C. Ferries’ Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal from more than $47 million to just $20. West Vancouver Mayor Michael Smith called the decision of the Property Assessment Appeal Board “ridiculous,” adding “to suggest that a large parcel of West Vancouver waterfront has no value is absurd.”
‘Ridiculous’ change comes at $1M cost to municipal coffers
The decision essentially strips the municipality of about $250,000 of anticipated property taxes in 2013, meaning a possible two per cent increase in property taxes for homeowners. “It’s a signiﬁcant loss of revenue,” said Smith. The board’s decision is retroactive, meaning the district will be required to repay approximately $750,000 in property taxes it collected on the parcels going back to 2010. But West Vancouver politicians said Monday they aren’t going
to accept the decision without a ﬁght, voting unanimously to pursue the case in B.C. Supreme Court. In an unusual move, the B.C. Assessment Authority itself is also appealing the decision. The dispute revolves around two parcels of land at the ferry terminal leased from the province, which had been valued at a total of $47.7 million. Prior assessments had put the land value at about $44.15 million in 2011 and $45.6 million in 2010. But this year, the corporation decided to appeal its assessment. Smith said the municipality knew about the appeal and thought See BC page 4

Tenant raises stink over pigeon ﬁlth
Weeks-long ﬁght to get air shaft cleaned may ﬁnally see results Jane Seyd email@example.com
A North Vancouver man is crying foul over the effort he says he had to go through to get his landlord to deal with an unhealthy mess of pigeon poop lying inches deep outside his apartment. “There’s certain standards they are supposed to abide by,” said Michael Ravenscroft, who rents an apartment at 107 West 1st Street. Ravenscroft said he complained to his property management company, the City of North Vancouver and the health department for a month about the problem before anyone took notice. “Any other situation where there’s a biohazard, they have a hazmat team come in,” said Ravenscroft. “It’s taken way too lightly.” Ravenscroft said any time he’s called the authorities, to ask that the property owners be ordered to clean up the pigeon droppings, “They say it’s done. It’s not done.” Ravenscroft said he ﬁrst became concerned there might be a problem when he smelled something bad in one area of his apartment and couldn’t ﬁnd the source, no matter how much he cleaned. It was only when he looked outside, to one of two light shafts running down the middle of the heritage building, that he realized what the problem was: layers of pigeon droppings and decomposing pigeon carcasses. Until recently, Ravenscroft said he had a hard time getting anyone to take the issue seriously. Pigeons, that often make nests in covered areas of buildings, are known to carry diseases that can be transferred to humans. Pigeon droppings can carry funguses and — more rarely — an

TENANT Michael Ravenscroft peers into a light shaft at his apartment building that until recently was covered with a thick layer of pigeon droppings. Property managers say cleanup is now underway. infectious disease that can be contracted by anyone breathing in dried droppings. Paul Markey, environmental health ofﬁcer for Vancouver Coastal Health, said the risk is greatest for people actually cleaning the mess rather than living near it. Markey said a health ofﬁcer met the property manager on site last week and received assurances the light shaft areas will be cleaned. Markey added that a number of pigeon-prooﬁng measures have already been placed around the building — including metal spikes that prevent pigeons and other birds from roosting. He said those will now have to be added to the areas of the building above the light shafts. Joanne Stevens of Living Balance, the property management
company for the building, said she’s aware of the problem and is arranging for cleanup and further pigeon-prooﬁng. Andrew MacBain of Pigeon Patrol, a Lower Mainland company that specializes in bird-prooﬁng, said he’s taken a look at the problem and will be submitting a plan to get all areas cleaned up by the end of the week. Pigeons are a huge pest problem all over the Lower Mainland, said MacBain — roosting on ledges, apartment balconies or under awnings. MacBain said his company manufactures and installs spikes to deter the birds, as well as netting and sonic devices that scare birds away with high-pitched frequencies as well as sounds that imitate predators. He adds there’s no shortage of business.
Kinder Morgan ﬁnds few supporters in NV Pipeline proponents face tough questions at ﬁrst N. Shore meeting
Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
NORTH Shore residents got their ﬁrst of two chances on Saturday to put questions and concerns to the proponents of a pipeline project that will increase oil tanker trafﬁc through Burrard Inlet ﬁve-fold.
About 75 people came to the ﬁrst Kinder Morgan-hosted public information meeting on the company’s proposal to twin the Trans Mountain pipeline — which runs from Edmonton to Burnaby — Saturday afternoon. A second meeting is scheduled for West Vancouver tonight. If approved by the National Energy Board, the upgrade will mean 25 oil tankers will leave the Westridge Terminal in Burnaby every month, up from the current ﬁve, each carrying about 585,000 barrels of diluted bitumen to markets in the U.S. and China, according to Mike Davies, a Kinder Morgan spokesman. While some members of the audience appeared to have come out simply to learn more about the project and get their questions answered, a large contingent of meeting attendees seemed to already be steadfastly opposed. Deep Cove residents Chloe Hartley and Chris Sallis, like most, listed the potential for a spill in Burrard Inlet as their biggest concern, but issues such as increased air pollution, noise and light at night, and environmental impacts in their local waters also brought them to the meeting. Others took a more macro view in opposing the plan, including former Green Party candidate

NORTH Vancouver resident Len Laycock (right) questions Trans Mountain Pipeline spokesman Mike Davies during a public information meeting at North Shore Neighbourhood House Saturday. Jim Stephenson, who argued that oil is best left in the ground. “The question isn’t so much whether they can build a safe pipeline or even whether they can move ships safely through our most beautiful waters,” he said. With the increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that would result in part from pipeline expansion, global temperatures will be pushed upward, bringing disastrous consequences, said Stephenson. Others worried about the risk of the smaller leaks that are known to happen along pipelines and the carcinogens those mishaps would put into the nearby water and soil. As for the prevailing local concern about a spill
in the inlet, that would be largely out of the company’s hands, said Davies. “Our strict regulatory obligation is for the pipeline; that’s where we have direct responsibility,” he said. “We’re very, very concerned that the marine trafﬁc piece of it be done well, but we don’t have any direct inﬂuence on that part of it. It’s under Transport Canada; it’s under B.C. Pilotage.” The Tsleil-Waututh Nation, whose traditional territory the tankers would travel through, has already come out opposed to Trans Mountain, but they have a separate consultation process to go through, as mandated by the federal government. “Their concerns are really important to us,” said Davies. “We hope to meet with them to talk
to them in detail about the project, share some of the factual information about it and get their input and clearly understand their concerns as well. It’s part of designing the best project that we can.” In addition to an increase in jobs at the Westridge terminal, the project would give a boost to North Vancouver’s Seaspan, which would provide new state-of-the-art tugs to get the tankers in and out of the narrow inlet, Davies said. Canadians as a whole will also beneﬁt from the $4-billion expansion, Davies argued, calling it a “critical piece of Canadian infrastructure.” “Canada has the second- or third-largest oil reserves in the world, and we only have the infrastructure that allows us to trade with the U.S., basically,” he said, noting that Asian markets are putting up about $20 to $30 more for barrel of oil these days. “That’s what Canada’s economy is based on: trading commodities. . . . I think it’s in the best interests of Canada to get the best price that we can. This project will provide the opportunity to trade more with lots more countries.” And Canadians beneﬁt more from the oft-demonized “Big Oil” than they realize, he said. “Those who are lucky enough to actually own shares in the oil companies, they’re part of Big Oil. If you have a Canadian mutual fund, it probably has some shares in Canadian oil companies, and if you hope to get CPP, the Canadian Pension Plan invests in oil companies,” he said. Contrary to popular belief, Kinder Morgan does not produce, own or sell the oil that runs through Trans Mountain, Davies said; it simply leases the pipeline space to energy marketers. The next and only similar meeting on the North Shore is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 7 at the Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver from 4 to 7 p.m. Feedback from the meetings will be used as part of Kinder Morgan’s application that will go to the National Energy Board at the end of next year.

BC Ferries argues land is worthless From page 1
the value might change slightly. He said he was “shocked and appalled” to hear about the magnitude of the change. But in its decision, the board ruled the impact on West Vancouver isn’t its concern. “While this may appear to be an unfair result to the taxing municipality, fairness of a result does not arise as a consideration,” the assessment board ruled. B.C. Ferries argued the properties are essentially worthless, because they are restricted to use as a ferry terminal, and have no marketable value outside of that. Calling the decision an example of provincial downloading on to municipalities, Smith pledged to try to reverse it. One councillor took aim at B.C.’s government. “The provincial government has structured B.C. Ferries so that it’s a money-losing proposition,” said Coun. Craig Cameron. “We’re being asked to subsidize that ferry operation.” The ruling could set a dangerous precedent, according to Grant McRadu, the district’s chief administrative ofﬁcer. “We are only the ﬁrst,” McRadu said. “This is going to have enormous impacts on Delta, North Saanich, the City of Nanaimo.” Smith vowed to ﬁght the decision both in court and using “every political means we can. “It’s just totally unacceptable,” he said. “This is going to have a huge impact.” The assessment board’s ruling was largely based on a Newfoundland Supreme Court Case that pitted the town of Gander against the Gander International Airport. In that case, a parcel of land was found to have no value except as part of the airport. It isn’t the ﬁrst time local governments on the North Shore have had assessment appeals wipe out millions of dollars of tax revenue. In 2006, City and District of North Vancouver lost their bid to overturn a property assessment appeal board ruling that slashed the assessed value of port lands occupied by Western Stevedoring Co. Ltd. In that case, the property assessment appeal board ruled the port property could only be valued according to the restricted use imposed by the lease from the federal government.

Townhouse ﬁre leaves family homeless NV complex severely damaged, but no injuries reported Brent Richter email@example.com
A North Vancouver family is out of house and home after a townhouse ﬁre Saturday morning.
Crews from the City and District of North Vancouver ﬁre departments raced to the 300-block of West Fourth Street just before 8:20 a.m. when one unit of the six-unit complex was engulfed in ﬂames. “We conﬁrmed that everybody was out of that unit and the adjacent units, then we went into ﬁre attack mode,” said Dan Pistilli, acting ﬁre chief for the City of North Vancouver. Paramedics treated the affected families on site. “They’re all doing good now. For a couple nights, everybody in the complex had either gone to family locally or they were being put up in hotels with the assistance of (Emergency Social Services),” Pistilli said, “There was support from local merchants who had gotten them some clothing.” The adjacent units suffered some smoke and ﬁre damage, but ﬁreﬁghters managed to stop the ﬁre from consuming the whole complex. “The crews worked extremely hard to contain it to the one unit. . . . (They) did an awesome job putting the ﬁre out,” Pistilli said. It was too soon to say exactly how the blaze began, he said, but investigators believe it started in the kitchen.

Cyclist forgiving after near-fatal collision From page 1
“I’m not sure whether these guys live in West Van, but it’s certainly not the kind of road where you want to be doing that kind of stuff on. . . . I’m mostly a little peeved. It’s wet out. It’s just a stupid evening to be running around at that kind of speed on a road like that. It’s just stupid driving,” he said.
Yet the 24 year old is forgiving. “They’re teenagers and teenagers sometimes don’t make the best decisions. I don’t have any off feeling towards them. It’s just not the kind of neighbourhood,” he said. In addition to having to explain to someone what happened to his luxury auto, the driver was issued a violation ticket for speeding relative to road conditions and failing to keep right.

Close to the wind T
HE spat between the District of West Vancouver and B.C. Ferries over the abrupt revaluation of the Horseshoe Bay terminal has exposed ﬂawed thinking at two levels of government. First, there is the absurd notion the waterfront industrial property is worth only $20. The claim — built on the idea that the terms of a lease can determine a piece of real estate’s value — is a blatant effort by the cash-strapped company to download losses onto whoever it can. West Vancouver’s taxpayers shouldn’t bear the brunt of B.C. Ferries’ operational issues: Just as Dr. Frankenstein is responsible for his monster, so should the province be responsible for its own diabolical creation. The district, of course, is right
to ﬁght this all the way to the top — and it may well win — but West Vancouver council isn’t blameless for the pickle in which it ﬁnds itself as a result of the dip in revenue. While the mayor and council never miss an opportunity to remind constituents how many years they’ve gone without a tax increase, they rarely call attention to the difﬁculties that policy can create. By making a cap on taxes its top priority, the district has eliminated what little wiggle room it had to compensate for the unexpected. Cut to the bone, it has few options for reworking its budget to make up for even a modest change in costs or revenue. When you leave yourself no space for error, a bump in the road can send you ﬂying.
A mosaic without murder
Dear Editor: I love this country and am proud of who we are as a collective people. I genuinely embrace the multiculturalism that has always, and will forever continue to shape Canada into the great nation that it is. Where I draw the line, is that we don’t have more mechanisms in place for our ofﬁcials to turf a guy like this (murderer Babak Najaﬁ-Chaghabouri) back to where he came from after he clearly showed himself to be a violent man, well before this brutal act even took place (Convicted North Van Axe Killer Plans Appeal, Oct. 31, North Shore News). This has absolutely nothing to do with race, religion, beliefs, etc. My thoughts on this are based entirely on the fact that we provide
the opportunity for people of foreign nations to come to a better place and enjoy the rights, freedoms and beauty that we all love and cherish. When such a person displays a total lack of moral substance, and in this case extreme violent tendencies, he or she should be on the next ﬂight home. Let their home country deal with it. As taxpayers, we should not have to pay for this animal to spend 25 years behind bars on our soil. He should’ve been ousted based on one of six prior offenses — let alone taking a hatchet to someone’s head. The fact that deportation was attempted unsuccessfully makes it all the more disappointing. There has to be a better way. Scott J. Switzer North Vancouver
In trash ﬁght, the sweet smell of progress
Dear Editor: It has been 13 years since the landmark year of 1999, when a shocking total of 39 bears were reportedly shot on the North Shore. Their crime for this destruction was seeking food in human habitat. Our crime in attracting them with our poorly contained attractants, and then destroying them, was far greater. However, this was a turning point for our community. The sheer scale of bear deaths outraged North Shore residents, and galvanized a few souls who created the North Shore Black Bear Network and its sister organization, the North Shore Black Bear Society. Over the past 13 years, these organizations, working closely with the Conservation Ofﬁcers Service, the RCMP, Bear Aware and local government, have sought to explore other, more humane means to control bears entering local human habitat. North Shore residents and their children have responded
magniﬁcentlytoongoingeducationandhaveassumedacommendable sense of responsibility towards their natural environment, of which the bears are a part. Countless residents have taken the necessary steps to effectively contain their attractants, and thereby discourage bear incursions into human habitat. Over the years, to their credit, this has resulted in a dramatic reduction in bear deaths. But even one death is one too many. The shocking numbers from 1999 prove that while killing removes the bears, it doesn’t prevent others from coming. The answer lies in controlling the things that draw them in the ﬁrst place. This is an ongoing work-in-progress, requiring the co-operation of all residents in bear-active areas. If you are one of those enlightened souls, give yourself a pat on the back: Somewhere a bear is alive because of you. Thank you. Mick Webb North Vancouver
Prepare West Van for the suites hereafter
Dear Editor: Patricia McClintick’s comments on the proposed “Eightstorey ediﬁce” for Ambleside are typical of the senior, NIMBY, do-nothing, change-nothing crowd that has crippled development in West Vancouver for years (Eight-Storey Ediﬁce Will Floor Neighbours, Oct. 31, North Shore News). I sympathize with the West Vancouver municipal councillors who have had to deal with this group. Ambleside merchants are slowly dying, what with the competition from Park Royal and an older population that doesn’t spend money and doesn’t support them. Building that ediﬁce and bringing in more residents who will live, walk and spend in the area is the only way to save Ambleside and preserve the charm of the village. As someone who has recently downsized, I can attest to the dearth of properties that can accommodate the downsizing senior who wants to remain in West Vancouver. This problem is going to become more acute as boomers reach the age where they want to simplify their lives. We need to build more townhomes and condominiums to handle that trend. Another issue that affects all residents of West Vancouver is taxation. The population of West Vancouver has been almost stagnant for decades. We need denser development to increase our numbers and spread the tax burden over more people. If not, our taxes will continue to increase with rising operating costs, and the many seniors who are house rich and cash poor will be forced out of their homes prematurely. Where will they go?

Salmon report spawns new ﬁsh farm ﬁght “It is not my role to micromanage DFO by suggesting detailed improvements to every element of its work relevant to Fraser River sockeye. Instead, my recommendations reﬂect those matters so important to the future sustainability of the Fraser River sockeye ﬁshery that I must urge DFO or the Government of Canada to act.” Justice Bruce Cohen, Commission of Inquiry into the Decline of Sockeye Salmon in the Fraser River — ﬁnal report, Oct. 31, 2012
IF one statement can be said to justify a $26-million, 1,100-page analysis, Justice Bruce Cohen delivered it in the executive summary to his ﬁnal report on the decline of Fraser River sockeye, released last week: “The ultimate authority over the management of the Fraser River sockeye salmon ﬁshery should rest with the (federal) minister of ﬁsheries and oceans.” Implied in Cohen’s statement, of course, is that accountability for the health and survival of the ﬁshery also must rest with the minister — and on the shoulders of scientists and staff of Fisheries and
Elizabeth James Oceans Canada. But anyone who hoped Cohen would be able to identify a single, deﬁnitive cause for what has been a ﬂuctuating but steadily declining ﬁshery since the 1940s will have been disappointed when the judge said he had found no such “smoking gun.” From industrial activity and land development to ﬁsh farms and warming migration waters, the report implicates a range of factors as stressors that have exerted an adverse and cumulative effect on salmon habitat. Disappointing, also, is that it was beyond the Commission’s purview to comment on the extent and inﬂuence of diseases associated with farmed salmon that were and are being analyzed at the urging of salmon advocate, biologist Alexandra Morton.
As one might expect, Cohen’s open-ended statement, “The idea that a single event or stressor is responsible for the 1992-2009 decline in Fraser River sockeye is appealing but improbable,” has encouraged a variety of interested individuals and groups to draw their own preferred emphases from Cohen’s analysis and 75 recommendations. Nevertheless, the two and a half years of cross-province hearings and sworn testimony crystallized and gave legitimacy to the opinions and problems British Columbians have been learning about — from Morton, Rafe Mair and groups like Save Our Salmon and the Watershed Watch Salmon Society — for well over a decade. But if our provincial and federal governments do not treat Cohen’s recommendations as binding, the report will gather dust on the shelves of their respective ministries, and Canadians will be left at Square One — minus $26 million. The thought that could happen is anathema to Morton, who attended the report’s ofﬁcial release Oct. 31. “During the press conference,” she wrote, “Judge Cohen concluded that the potential harm posed to Fraser River sockeye by salmon farms is serious or irreversible.”
That statement — far more unequivocal than the overall diplomatic tone of the written report — seemed to throw gasoline on Morton’s unrelenting ﬁre. In the wake of the event, she is urging British Columbians to send letters to Premier Christy Clark demanding that provincial leases for the opennet salmon farms sited in the migration paths of wild salmon not be approved when they come up for renewal (see her petition at change.org). Although the CampbellClark government’s history is not encouraging in this regard, there is reason for hope: B.C. is only six months away from an election. Clark needs every vote she can muster, so there may
never be a better time for us all to come together and make this demand. Prominent among those immediately affected are B.C.’s First Nations, as well as commercial and sports ﬁshing interests. Centuries of culture and today’s livelihoods could disappear within a decade if DFO fails to implement Cohen’s recommendations. Over the years, many groups have been vocal about their “rights” to the annual ﬁshery. But placed against the backdrop of warnings from people like Morton, those disagreements and federal-provincial disputes are reminiscent of squabbles between geese at feeding time: They’re all so busy ﬁghting over territory,
they don’t even notice the food has disappeared. And although international aquaculture corporations may dream of the marketing opportunities that would follow, the disappearance of wild salmon would be a home-grown environmental disaster. Devotees of man-made climate-change may point to Cohen’s report as evidence to further their cause; but if we sit idly by as wild ﬁsh disappear from our waters, it will be what we have NOT done that accelerates a change for the worse in our B.C. environment. Wild salmon are the canary in the mine for our generation. As First Nations and other

Mayor’s view views don’t add up Dear Editor: For a number of years, Mayor Darrell Mussatto and other City of North Vancouver councillors have said that no one owns their view and that their views cannot be guaranteed. The mayor reiterated this fact most recently in the North Shore News of Oct. 26 (Condo Approval Reignites City Rental Debate). But on Oct. 22, The Province newspaper reported that
Mayor Mussatto is “open to a suggestion” to rezone lots impacted by Richardson’s proposed grain-storage expansion so that homeowners might regain lost real estate value. In other words, the mayor is prepared to consider ad-hoc changes to the Ofﬁcial Community Plan to compensate homeowners who will lose their views because of a company’s legitimate actions that
are beyond the control of the city, but for years city council has been responsible for the loss of homeowners’ views, without compensation, when it has allowed ad-hoc density bonuses and transfers to just about every developer who comes along. These two points of view are quite opposite. Ken Hawthorne North Vancouver

when it was redeveloped a couple of years ago. This might work for infrequent, recreational cyclists who don’t mind swerving to avoid pedestrians and dogs and stopping at turnouts every 30 metres to give way to cars, but this is not a viable option for commuter cyclists who, like drivers, are usually pressed for time. The only safe
and efﬁcient solution is a dedicated cycle lane similar to those being developed by the City of Vancouver. Without these lanes, cycle commuters will continue to ride on the road and risk serious accidents. Euan Crawford North Vancouver

NV burglars cut through walls
Thieves hit ﬁve businesses in one weekend Brent Richter email@example.com
IN what may seem like a scene from a crime caper movie, thieves on the North Shore have been cutting through walls and dismantling security systems to carry out thefts.
NEWS photo Mike Wakeﬁeld.
A dense fog bank obscures all but the tops of Vancouver’s tallest buildings as seen from the North Vancouver waterfront Monday morning. The mist burned off early, giving way to one of the ﬁrst sunny mornings the area has seen in some time.
North Vancouver RCMP are investigating a spate of break-and-enters in which ﬁve businesses around town were hit between Oct. 26 and Oct. 28. In four of the ﬁve cases, the thieves got inside their victims’ stores by cutting holes through the adjacent walls, and in some instances, they dismantled alarms, motion lights, surveillance cameras and the main power. Police say it’s likely the same culprits are responsible for each crime. The ﬁrst break-in took place around 4 a.m. Oct. 26 at the United Royal Currency Exchange on Lonsdale Avenue at 15th Street. The
thieves made off with two small safes containing an undisclosed amount of cash, along with a laptop computer and leather jacket. On the same night, they took several thousand dollars worth of merchandise and a computer from the high-end athletic shoe store Kintec on Marine Drive. The same group is also suspected of breaking into the North Shore Autowash on Main Street, but in that case, they only tampered with the business’s circuit panel. They struck again at the Lynn Valley Centre sometime the following night where they tried and failed to unbolt an ATM from the ground. Finally, the thieves tripped the alarm at the Trio Diamond & Gold Jewellery store on Lonsdale Avenue at 15th Street. They pocketed an undisclosed amount of jewelry before police arrived on the scene. “All investigative resources are being utilized to identify the culprits responsible for this very unusual string of break and enters,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, spokesperson for the North Vancouver RCMP, in a release. Anyone with information is asked to contact the North Vancouver RCMP at 604985-1311.

Spat over business deal can be heard, despite man’s court connections
Jane Seyd firstname.lastname@example.org
A North Vancouver judge has ruled there is no reason a civil lawsuit can’t be heard in provincial court, even though one of the men involved works part-time for the court as a judicial justice. Judge Joanne Challenger ruled recently that while “public conﬁdence in the justice system is dependent on the impartiality of judges in making their decisions,” she was not convinced the relationship between the justice and the court was enough to create an obvious bias. Challenger said there is no interrelationship between the roles of regular provincial court judges and judicial justices. Judicial justices are lawyers with special training, who adjudicate more minor disputes like trafﬁc tickets. They also conduct bail hearings and grant search warrant applications — often in telephone hearings — from the Justice Centre, particularly when regular court isn’t in session. In the North Vancouver case, Edward Pielak

and Hunter Gordon sued each other over a business deal gone sour. Partway through the trial, Pielak discovered that Gordon worked part-time as a judicial justice who hears trafﬁc ticket cases in a provincial court on Vancouver Island. Pielak applied for a mistrial, arguing Gordon’s position with the court meant it wouldn’t be possible for a provincial court judge to deal with the case impartially. But last month, Challenger rejected that. In making her decision, the judge said there is no professional relationship between provincial court judges and judicial justices such as Gordon. The two perform different roles, she said, adding she wasn’t aware of Gordon’s position until Pielak raised it. “To my recollection, Mr. Gordon has never sat in any courthouse at the same time when I have been presiding,” she added. Challenger said she’s not aware of any prior cases involving questions of potential bias where one of the parties involved in a case is also a judicial ofﬁcer of the same court. In making her ruling, Challenger noted the presumption of judicial impartiality carries signiﬁcant weight and the burden of proof is on the person asking that a judge be disqualiﬁed from a case. That test has not been met, she said. There are more than 150 provincial court judges and close to 35 judicial justices working for the provincial court throughout the province.

A maple tree shows its autumn colours before leaf-fall. The beneﬁts of leaf mulching in the garden are many and include reducing green waste that goes to the transfer station.
Don’t bag autumn leaves and blazing fall colours.
PRACTICAL GEEK Technology writer Barry Link answers readers’ questions about cutting the cord to cable TV. page 17
Todd Major COLOURS of crimson, yellow and burnt orange adorn the fall garden thanks to September’s sunshine that encouraged trees and shrubs to produce a heavy fruit set
Now that the colours of fall are dropping to the ground, we run into the age old problem of what to do with all those leaves. Aside from piling leaves up and playing with the kids, the usual practice of rake, blow and go will probably begin in earnest. However, all that leaf biomass has value in the garden and perhaps in this age of sustainability we should look at recycling leaves at home instead of hauling them to the transfer station. The simplest way to use leaves at home while saving money is to apply the leaves as mulch. I know many people will dismiss this idea instantly as being hippie guru stuff, or simply not attractive enough for my garden. But I ask you
to at least consider the beneﬁts of leaf mulching in the garden. Reusing leaves at home will at a minimum save tax money by reducing the volume of green waste that goes to the transfer station and everyone wants to save tax money. Using leaves as mulch will also save money by reducing the amount of mulch that has to be bought to protect the soil from the ravages of winter rain and frost. Beyond those monetary beneﬁts, leaf mulching is beneﬁcial for soil fertility because it attracts worms, bacteria and fungi to a palatable food source which those organisms turn into organic matter that’s rich in nutrients. Not to mention the fact that leaves protect the soil from rain compaction and leaves make a lovely sound as the rain splatters
among them. The primary problem with using leaves as mulch comes down to presentation quality. Presentation standards are usually a matter of perception more than anything. So maybe we need to change our perception of what a healthy garden looks like. To use leaves as mulch they simply need to be processed a little to alter their shape and texture to make them look more palatable to our perception. Some leaves like Japanese maple, birch, katsura and many other small leaves do not require any alteration before use. Their size is compatible with what our eyes perceive as orderly. The trick to applying small leaves comes in the See Leaf page 14

form of focused application in a uniform manner that produces a level and orderly looking bed surface. It takes some effort but the beneﬁts are many, including a tapestry of colour and texture that few other types of mulch can match. For large leaves like bigleaf maple, Indian bean tree, cherry, magnolia and so on, the trick is to process them a little bit by piling them on the lawn and running over them with the lawn mower to shred them up and unify their size and shape. Once shred-processing is done, large leaves can be applied like any other mulch. I know everyone is thinking that’s a lot of work, but so is raking, piling, hauling and unloading at the transfer station. And leaves are free and it takes less time to shred and apply leaves versus loading, hauling and unloading them at the transfer station. Another excellent use of leaves is to build a leaf-compost pile. Leaf composting produces high quality compost called leaf mould, which is black, rich, earthy and full of nutrients — and free. To build a leaf compost choose somewhere in the yard where the leaves can sit and decompose for six to eight months. Begin by levelling the site. Start piling the leaves in an orderly and stacked
fashion, thicker on the outside edges and slightly thinner in the middle of the pile. Build each layer 30-40 centimeters thick (12 to 16 inches). On top of each leaf layer, add a nitrogen accelerator to feed bacteria that will break down the leaves. This is one of the few times I recommend additives. Use 210-0 about one to two handfuls per square metre — any more is wasteful. On top of the additive, apply six centimetres (2 inches) of any garden soil to cover the leaves. The soil will bind most decomposition gases and provide bacteria to break down the leaves. Continue this procedure over and over until you build the maximum length, width and height you desire. The pile should form with sides gently tapering inward to keep the pile upright but not in a pyramid form. The top layer should be soil only and perhaps a piece of cardboard if you are worried about heavy rainfall, but it’s not absolutely necessary. A little leaf in the garden beds and some leaf compost in the corner is good for the wallet, body, soul and the environment.

The best way to begin is to download Your Emergency Preparedness Guide. You will ﬁnd this by going to “How Do I . . . Prepare An Emergency Kit?” on the home page then clicking on “Your Emergency Plan.” This 16-page guide outlines the three major steps
Barb Lunter you need to take in order to properly prepare your family for a disaster. PSEPC recommends visiting this site and taking the necessary steps outlined in the guide. PSEPC believes that you should be self-sufﬁcient for at least 72 hours in the case of an emergency. In a nutshell, there are three major steps to take. The ﬁrst is to know your risks in your community. Every community has its own hazards and risks and it’s up to you to investigate your speciﬁc surroundings. Step 2 is to make a home plan. Are you prepared for an
emergency? There is a good chance that your family will be separated at the time so you must ensure that you can reach them in an emergency situation. Everyone in the home should know where the emergency contact information is kept and escape routes should be discussed with appropriate emergency exits determined. Keep extra medications on hand for persons with special health needs. The last step is to have an emergency kit on hand. Basic items such as food, water and a battery-operated ﬂashlight are critical items to keep in a well-known location. Everyone in the household should know where these items are. A backpack or dufﬂe bag is ideal for packing your emergency kit. Check the PSEPC website for a printable list of emergency kit items. If you take the time to follow the three important steps you will probably sleep better knowing you are prepared in the unfortunate situation of an unexpected emergency. email@example.com

Watch for water birds wintering at Maplewood
Wild About Birds Al Grass
AUTUMN is a busy time for birds with some migrating to sunny parts down south, with others coming down from the interior or north to settle in for the winter. Every day on Burrard Inlet, or the ponds of Ambleside and Maplewood Conservation Area, there’s something new and wonderful to be discovered. Common loons (of the loonie coin fame) breed on interior lakes in summer, spending their winters on salt water. By fall, however, loons lose their bright breeding colours, including the characteristic “necklace,” thus reverting back to their basic (winter) plumage — which is
still lovely. But the common loon (or Great Northern Diver as it is known in Europe) is not the only loon species found in local waters. The red-throated loon is also seen here, and like the common loon, it loses its breeding plumage. When swimming, its bill is pointed up at an angle which is an excellent ﬁeld identiﬁcation characteristic. The Paciﬁc loon is somewhat rarer in local waters, but more common in the Strait of Georgia (Salish Sea), especially in places like Active Pass between Galiano and Mayne Islands. (Watch for it from the Victoria ferry.) Two locally very rare loons are the Arctic loon and yellow-billed loon. To identify these birds correctly takes a bit of studying because they can be tricky — but they should be watched for. Grebes, like loons, are ﬁshing birds and we have several species that are seen regularly. The largest is the black and white western grebe with its long neck. Clark’s grebe is a very rare western look-a-like with bright yellow bill and white line over each eye. Red-necked grebe is a medium-sized grebe, ie. between Western and horned/eared in size that loses its red-neck but can be told by its peaked head and
gray throat. The honed grebe is a small grebe that is basically black and white. It can be seen off the Maplewood Conservation Area and Ambleside pier quite regularly. The eared grebe, very rare in local waters, is sometimes confused with the horned grebe but has a darker throat and a bill that seems to point upwards (it does take some careful watching to be sure). The little pied-billed grebe is usually seen in fresh water ponds like Maplewood’s West Pond. It is sometimes said that the pied-billed grebe has a chicken-like look. Some water birds such as geese, scaup, and scoters have arrived for the winter in good numbers locally. We have three scoter species to watch for: surf, white-winged, and black. Goldeneyes (Barrow’s and common) and the related bufﬂehead have just begun arriving in early November. These diving ducks breed on freshwater lakes in BC’s interior. They are cavity nesters utilizing old woodpecker (and often ﬂicker) holes. Local populations of dabbling ducks like mallards have their numbers supplemented by birds arriving from as far away as Alaska. Gradually, as the days of autumn roll on,

THE red-necked grebe loses its bright red breeding colour during fall. green-winged teal, American wigeon, and northern pintail numbers will increase. Birders will be scanning through the American wigeon (baldpate of yore) to ﬁnd the Eurasian wigeon which seems to be getting more common each winter. Sometimes you can
also discover the old world version of the green-winged teal which is a common teal with the green wings. Teal are tiny ducks with fast ﬂight and a voice that sounds much like crickets chirping. It turns out that not all ducks “quack” — some
whistle, some grunt, and others, like wigeon, sound like a child’s rubber ducky. (Does anyone remember the “rubber ducky?”) The point is, you can identify many ducks by their voices — it’s a fun thing See Anna’s page 19

Television users reach out for answers Barry Link Contributing Writer
MY recent series of columns about cutting the cable cord to your TV in favour of Internet-based content has generated a lot of questions from readers. Let’s get to the ﬁrst batch, with more on the way in my next column:
blinds and surrounding apartment buildings. As for your TV, if it’s thin and wide, fairly new and not a big, bulky square thing, it’s digital. Just make sure the ﬁve channels you want to receive are local TV stations broadcast over the air in the Vancouver area. If any of them are from the United States, you’ll want to stick with cable.
Practical Geek Barry Link
Question: I’ve got an old TV with a 13-inch screen. I used to get CBC and CTV with my rabbit ears, but now I can’t because of the change to digital. Is there something I can do? Eric, via email Answer: Not really. If your TV is an old tube-based model as I suspect, you’ll need an adapter or converter box for your rabbit ears to allow the TV to read the digital signals now broadcast exclusively by TV stations in North America. The cheapest converter box I could ﬁnd on Amazon.ca was $70. At that price, depending on your budget, I’d buy a new TV. If you look for sales, you can ﬁnd decent TVs up to 32 inches, good enough for many households, for $250 or less at retail stores. Question: I wish to get rid of my cable, since I only view ﬁve channels. My question is, can I have an antenna while residing in a condo? Also, how do I know if my TV is digital? It’s fairly new, but can’t remember when I purchased it. Doreen, via email Answer: Yes, you can have an antenna in a condo, but its placement will be restricted compared to a house, where you can put an antenna in the attic or on the roof. In my own apartment, antenna use is limited by my walls, aluminum
Question: Does the Boxee Box not deserve at least an honourable mention? What are your thoughts on this option? Rob, via email Answer: I haven’t used the Boxee Box, a small, unusually shaped media streamer made by D-Link, but I have used the now discontinued PC software version of Boxee, which has much the same interface. I liked it; the interface is bold and easy to use on a big screen, and I considered the Boxee Box for my own home setup as a Netﬂix device. But the price is relatively high (currently $190 at Future Shop) compared to $109 for devices like the Apple TV.
reliability for phone and cable TV when needed with the additional choices through Internet-based entertainment. I’m glad you mentioned VoIP telephone services, which is using the Internet for phone service. That’s a topic for an upcoming column. Barry Link is editor of the Vancouver Courier newspaper and a geek enthusiast. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow him on Twitter @trueblinkit.
Question: We already subscribe to Netﬂix and very rarely watch conventional TV. Yet every time I look at dropping cable I end up ﬁguring it’s hardly worth it. We have a bundle for TV, high-speed Internet and basic phone through Shaw which totals $83.89 per month including tax. I suspect I’m on a grandfathered or unadvertised bundle as the ones listed online are a lot more expensive. Going to straight Internet 20 at $55/month sounds good but we still want a land line for work phone call purposes and house alarm monitoring purposes. A phone service at $20/month brings the pre-tax bill to $75 and I think that after taxes it would cost more than we are paying now. The only way I can ﬁgure out how to cut cable and save money is to move our phone to a VoiP service, which would mean paying more for wireless house alarm monitoring and purchasing expensive hardware. So for now I think we are sticking with our current setup and getting free cable that we rarely watch. Teresa, via email Answer: It seems like you’ve thought your needs and budget through very well and have the best of both options:

Thayer’s, glaucous-winged, western, mew, ring-billed, and herring are to be expected. Rare gulls to be watched for include Franklin’s (a prairie species), and glaucous (an Arctic species). There have been a good number of white-throated sparrow
sightings this fall. Watch too for slate-coloured juncos, yellowshafted ﬂickers and Anna’s hummingbirds. Enjoy your birds.

Kids of all ages love games, music, storytime
IN this digital age it’s easy to forget that there is a whole range of toys that will offer kids hours of fun and learning.
In the interests of full disclosure, I will start by saying that I hate the term “educational toys.” There is an implication that some toys are better than others and good parents will make sure that their children are only playing with educational toys. I dealt with this issue in my book, But Nobody Told Me I’d Ever Have to Leave Home. I say “Play is the essence of childhood. If we want our kids to grow up to be self-sufﬁcient and independent with good problem-solving skills, play is the place to start.”
Children play and learn all day. Whether they are playing with a cardboard box, action ﬁgures or a teddy bear, they are learning. Our job is to keep an eye on their toy collection to see that they have materials that coordinate with their developmental level and interests. Some kids love dress-up clothes and while others want building toys. It is important to note that choosing your kid’s toys should have nothing to do with gender-speciﬁc choices. Little girls will happily trundle dump trucks through the sandbox and boys can prepare a pretend feast with the best of them. A 12-month-old child wants to start to do things for herself but doesn’t have much co-ordination. So toys that allow her to dump, ﬁll and put together easily are great. These kids love water toys, stacking toys and lovely big blocks. By 18 months they want to push, pull and lug things around. So a doll buggy or small wagon that they can load up with their stuffed animals offer great fun. This is also when imaginative play such as imitating Mom and Dad begins, so a toy cell phone works well. After their second birthday, kids will get involved in
longer-term play so things like tea sets and doctor kits are fun and will engage your child. This is also when miniature barns and garages with animals and cars are popular. Not everything has to be toys you buy. Kids love things like empty yogurt containers. Boxes or old magazines are a treat for these little ones. There are a few classics. A good set of building blocks will grow with your child. First they will be dumped out of a container. When the child gets a bit older he will stack them and later build castles and mansions. Play-doh is a great favourite and can be made at home. Cookie cutters, a rolling pin and some small plastic animals lead children to many adventures. As soon as kids can keep things out of their mouths it’s time to stock art supplies. Big fat crayons and sheets of paper, or some watercolours or ﬁngerpaints are popular with children. Dress-up clothes lead to some wonderful imaginative play. Old hats, shoes, dresses and shortened pants will provide solitary and group play. And if you want to splurge, a wand or ﬁreﬁghter’s hat will add to the fun. Kids of all ages love music. Sing with your kids (they love
NEWS photo Cindy Goodman
A variety of toys have educational value because children are constantly learning. Building blocks, Play-doh, art supplies and dress-up clothes are all favourites. when you sing and have no idea if you are on tune or not), dance with them. Don’t limit yourself to children’s music, also put on your songs and whirl around the ﬂoor with them. And don’t forget books. Read to your kids. Read to them every day. Kids who learn to enjoy books and reading from a young age
will be able to entertain themselves. When they are little they will love looking at the pictures and as they mature will be keen to read their favourite books. However, once they can read, don’t stop reading to them. Storytime is a very special time between children and adults. So read to them and encourage their aunts,
uncles and grandparents to also curl up with a child or two and a good book. Kathy Lynn is a professional speaker and author of Who’s In Charge Anyway? and But Nobody Told Me I’d Ever Have to Leave Home. If you want to read more, sign up for her informational newsletter at www.parentingtoday.ca.

Wartime novels offer insight ■ Making Bombs for Hitler by Marsha Skrypuch (Scholastic Canada) $8.99 ■ Torn Apart: the Internment Diary of Mary Kobayashi, by Susan Aihoshi (Scholastic Canada) $16.99
Fran Ashdown Contributing Writer
ON Remembrance Day especially we take time to pay homage to those who went to war so that we might enjoy freedom — a freedom which was bought at a horriﬁc cost for so many.
We can more easily appreciate the sacriﬁces made on our behalf by learning about them through various resources — family history, television documentaries and books. One very powerful approach to learning is through personal narrative, which broadens and enriches the historical perspective. Kids (and this reviewer) can relate more easily to social history, which allows them to see through the eyes of the protagonist and comprehend how war affects a particular individual. Two excellent books that provide this perspective are Making Bombs for Hitler by Marsha Skrypuch and Torn Apart by Susan Aihoshi. Both titles focus on individuals who by strength of character and resourcefulness face and deal with circumstances that drastically change their worlds. Skrypuch writes about the slave raids conducted by Hitler throughout the Soviet Union during the Second World War. Between three million and 5.5 million Ostarbeiters, as these people were called, were transported to Germany and forced to work under horribly inhumane conditions. Thousands died either from starvation or from overwork. Many who were rescued and sent back to the Soviet Union were killed by Stalin who considered even Nazi captives to be Nazis. For this reason people kept silent for many years about their experiences as captives and it was not until the Soviet Republic dissolution in 1991 that information began to surface. The story describes the capture by the Nazis of eight-yearold Lida and her little sister Larissa. They endure appalling conditions on the train to the work camp and are separated as
soon as they arrive. Lida is advised by another prisoner to lie about her age and ﬁnd a skill or she will likely be killed. She tells the Germans about her ability as a seamstress and is sent to work in the laundry where she proves that she is indeed talented. Unfortunately, she is soon transferred to a new assignment, assembling bombs. With incredible bravery, Lida and her fellow prisoners risk certain death in carrying out a plan to sabotage the bombs and contribute their bit to defeating the Nazis. Finally, they are rescued and in the gruelling aftermath of war Lida and her friend Luca face more challenges in the refugee camps. The harsh, brutal and unrelenting pain, fear and misery encountered by the camp labourers is made evident in Skrypuch’s wonderful writing. Lida’s world is documented with clarity and accuracy. The reader is left wondering how anyone can survive such misery and thankful that we live in a different place and time. Susan Aihoshi’s Torn Apart is subtitled “The Internment Diary of Mary Kobayashi” and is set in Vancouver in 1941. While in no way as gut-wrenching as the Skrypuch title, it makes it clear that war affects everyone. This is another title in the excellent Dear Canada series which melds ﬁction with historical information and photographs. In the acknowledgements we learn that the author has drawn on family experiences to ﬂesh out the book’s main character. The diary format provides a window on the everyday life of a girl whose entries begin on her 12th birthday, Saturday, May 24, 1941. We see her happy family life begin to disintegrate as the government imposes more and more restrictions on Japanese Canadians. Mary’s entry for Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941 describes the news about the bombing of Pearl Harbor and its effect on the family. Mary ends her entry with the comment, “The war has ﬁnally become real in a way it never was before.” Finally, the unthinkable happens and Mary’s grandfather is sent away to a labour camp. A mere seven months later Mary and her sisters ﬁnd themselves on a train to New Denver to begin a new life in an internment community. Her family is fractured as her mother is still in Vancouver caring for an ill brother and her father has been detained for questioning. The diary ends with a reunited family still living in New Denver hoping to eventually return home. Mary’s life as a child in the 1940s in Vancouver in many ways reﬂects the life of any child of that era. She describes her enjoyment of Guides, her school life and her special interests and activities. Mary’s voice is authentic and charming and because she is so likable the reader is all the more appalled See Heroic page 40

IMAGINE yourself in Paris. You wander the narrow streets of the Latin quarter and you’re surrounded by quaint little bistros glowing with candlelight and fragrant with the aromas of wonderful, simple French cooking. You seat yourself at a little table with a snowy cloth, order a vin ordinaire and contemplate the delights the menu holds. A trip to France may not be in the cards right now, but you can certainly recreate some Parisian bistro favourites at home. This kind of French cooking isn’t intimidating in the least; it’s simple fare, easy to prepare and full of ﬂavour. Tell the family you’re off to Paris for the evening. Dim the lights, play some Edith Piaf tunes and put on your beret. Bon appétit! (Note: The alcohol in the wine used in these recipes is burned off during cooking so they are ﬁne to serve to the younger set).
Onion Soup Gratinée

ONION soup, a classic bistro starter, can also become a meal if served with a salad. French bread and cheese help build the hearty dish.
This is the classic bistro starter, or it can be a meal in itself if you serve a salad alongside it.
2 Tbsp butter 2 Tbsp olive oil 6 cups thinly sliced sweet onions (or a mixture of sweet and regular cooking onions) ¾ cup dry white wine (optional but it makes a big difference to the ﬂavour) 1-2 garlic cloves, ﬁnely minced 1½ one-litre cartons low-sodium beef broth 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1 fresh thyme sprig or a large pinch of dried thyme, crushed between your ﬁngers 4-6 thick slices of French bread 1-1½ cups grated Gruyère cheese (Fontina is a good
substitute; in a pinch you can use Provolone or mozzarella but Gruyère is the traditional choice) Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper In a large heavy-bottomed pan heat the butter and oil over medium-high heat until the butter is melted. Add the onions (it looks like a lot but they cook down quickly); cook and stir for 10-15 minutes, until the onions are very soft and slightly caramelized (reduce heat if they start to scorch or brown too quickly). Add the wine and the garlic; stir and cook for two minutes until wine is nearly evaporated. Add the broth, the Worcestershire and the thyme; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Place the bread on a baking sheet and See Bouquet page 35

Ready-to-eat meals build a following
Deana Lancaster Contributing Writer
WHAT to do with an extra hour in the day? Some people might have picked sleep as the best way to spend that gift of 3,600 seconds, but for me an extra hour on a Sunday meant more time to seek out good food. Not long ago, a reader told me I should check out Sharky’s Chophouse in Lonsdale Quay, a butcher shop that also sells readymade meals: pulled pork, glazed ham, beef stew, barbecued chicken, plus ﬁxings like potatoes and veg. A cold and drizzly Sunday seemed like the perfect backdrop for rib-sticking food

Sharky’s staff, seen in the photo at right, include owner Rob Jang (left), Lacey Leduc and Benjamin MacNeill. like that, so I headed for the waterfront. Sharky’s is lined up against the west wall of the market, a tidy operation with a long cooler full of fat steaks, trimmed and ready for seasoning; kebabs marinating

in ﬂavour baths; sausages; stuffed chicken breasts, pork ribs and loins . . . the options for home-cooking are almost unlimited. But I was most interested in the hot case squatting at the business end of the counter; and, so it seemed, were most of the other market visitors passing by. “Hi Rob!” they called out as they checked what was being sliced up for the day’s specials and took their spots in line. In the two years it’s been under the ownership of butcher Rob Jang, Sharky’s has clearly built a following for its ready-to-eat meals: $7.95 for your choice of meat and sides. “Having the fresh meats allows us to offer the hot meals to our customers at quite a reasonable price,” he explained as he dished it up. And although the breakdown is about 65 per cent fresh meats to 35 per cent hot food, Jang said he serves about 140 meals a day from the hot case. I took a bit of everything. Jang sliced up sweet chiliglazed ham, meatloaf and barbecued beef brisket and loaded it into takeout
containers, as well as mashed potatoes and a hefty slug of thick gravy — enough for my family (two adults, two children with smaller appetites), and all of it for just $34.88. Back home I unloaded my fragrant, meaty treasure. Shiny with glaze and studded with ﬂecks of chili, the ham was pink and succulent. Unlike so many iterations of it, Sharky’s meatloaf was juicy, and got a ﬂavour boost from diced veggies mixed in and a layer of gravy slicked on top. My favourite, though, was the brisket. This beef cut is taken from the breast section beneath the ﬁrst ﬁve ribs, behind the foreshank. It needs long, slow cooking to break down the collagen in the connective muscle tissues. When you buy it at the grocery store, it’s usually been trimmed, but the best-cooked briskets still have the fat (called the deckel) attached. Sharky’s brisket was marbled and still had the fat on. It was smoky, salty and fell apart at the touch of fork tines. It didn’t really need the See Retail page 35

Making life better for our best friends
Bakery more than bones Christmas cookies (available in December) will be in the shape of snowmen, candy canes, bones (with red and green yogurt) and mittens.
Shawna Conrad’s favourite treats are barbecue boots and pup pizza. But they’re not for her. Conrad owns the North Vancouver location of The Bone and Biscuit Company, a store featuring natural products for dogs and cats. It will celebrate its one-year anniversary in December.
Conrad notes that the pet treats are made from all-natural ingredients and have a six-month shelf life because a lot of them are cooked at such a low temperature for such a long time they naturally dehydrate so there is no moisture in them to mould.
The Bone and Biscuit Company offers grooming and raw food for pets, as well as toys and special bakery treats. Barbecue boots, cookies featuring natural barbecue sauce, are among the treats offered in the bakery along with pup pizzas made with sun-dried tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. Some pets do have a sweet tooth, says Conrad, and classic bones with carob and yogurt are among the store’s bestsellers. Treats are baked at The Bone and Biscuit Company’s Kelowna location, and include birthday cakes made with oat bran, free-range eggs, applesauce, honey and tumeric.
Some of the products are wheat-free and a lot of them are grain-free. A lot of animals have a sensitivity to certain grains because they have shorter intestinal tracts and it’s harder for them to digest, says Conrad. She says at home she is conscious about what she feeds her kids, and feels the same way about pets. “Some people’s children are their dogs,” she says, adding seeking out natural products is an easy way to feed your pet and “not have to worry what you’re putting into them.” — Rosalind Duane

not very physically active, getting a breed of dog that requires a lot of exercise obviously isn’t going to end up in a happy relationship,” says Hajdukovic, adding that a bored dog may start acting out and become destructive. The organization determines compatibility by asking people to ﬁll out a detailed questionnaire. “We also temperment-test all of our dogs, so we can predict what they’re going to be like in their new home,” says Hajdukovic.

Parents, doting aunts and uncles and grandparents should also avoid giving a pet to a child. “There are always dangers in getting pets for kids because kids grow up,” says Hajdukovic. “Getting a puppy for a 12-year-old that’s going to be graduating from high school in a few years, you have to really think about the lifetime of the animal you’re bringing into the home.”
Choosing the right pet It’s a scene straight out of a Disney movie: under a beautiful Christmas tree, a wrapped box wriggles suspiciously. When the box is opened, an adorable puppy jumps out, to the delight of its surprised new owner.
“When it comes to treating the animal the same and training the animal, it’s important that (the whole family) is on the same page,” says Hajdukovic. “And that everybody wants the animal in their home.”
But according Dragana Hajdukovic, branch manager at the West Vancouver B.C. SPCA, it’s a scenario prospective pet owners should avoid. Giving a pet to a loved one as a surprise can backﬁre, and the animal will be the real loser.
That means that everyone in the family should meet the pet before making a ﬁnal decision. The SPCA tries to match people with the right pet. The lifestyle of both the animal and its future owner need to be compatible. “If somebody is
Even small animals like hamsters and guinea pigs can be a problem if children are expected to take all the responsibility of caring for their pet. Once everyone realizes how much work it is, the animals tend to end up in shelters. But while giving a pet as a gift might not be the best idea, the holidays can be a great time for introducing a pet to your family. “Holidays can be a great time to get a pet because a lot of people are off work and school,” says Hajdukovic. “They can give that extra time and help the pet get settled into their new home.” — Jen St. Denis

at the unfeeling cruelty of the government. It was not until Sept. 2, 1988 that Brian Mulroney announced a Redress Settlement which acknowledged the offences against Japanese Canadians during and after the Second World War and ensured that in future no Canadian would be subject to this kind of injustice. Torn Apart is suitable for readers aged eight to 12.

NV teacher recognized A North Vancouver teacher was recently recognized by Prime Minister Stephen Harper for teaching excellence.
According to a press release, Marie Chomyn, a North Shore resident who teaches at Vancouver’s Tecumseh elementary, was a certiﬁcate of excellence recipient in the 2012 Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence and Excellence in Early Childhood Education. Good teachers help lay the foundation with which we interpret and navigate the world, said Harper, in the statement. They make a valuable contribution to Canadians being among the brightest and most innovative citizens in the world. It is a real privilege to honour educators who have imparted their knowledge and inspiration to us and our children, helping all of us become the best we can be, he said. The Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence honour outstanding elementary and secondary school teachers who, through the in-
novative use of information and communications technologies in the classroom, help students develop the knowledge and skills to succeed in the digital economy. The Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Early Childhood Education honour exceptional early-childhood educators who help build the foundation that young children need to make the best start in life. Chomyn encourages students to use online learning to extend their classroom education as she fosters leadership and student social responsibility, according to the awards website. She makes use of available resources in the community as her students are challenged with multi-disciplinary activities and become autonomous learners and thinkers who monitor and report on their own learning. Awards were given to 94 teachers/educators from across Canada. Five awards honouring Aboriginal educators and eight for space science educators were also presented. Info: pma-ppm.gc.ca.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to THE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY
Franklin’s eight TDs push West Van back to playoffs Andy Prest email@example.com
THE West Vancouver Highlanders are heading to the B.C. senior AAA football playoffs thanks in large part to one of the greatest individual performances the province has ever seen.
The efﬁcient effort continued from there as Marshall threw only ﬁve passes in the game but completed four of them for 83 yards and two touchdowns. The Grade 11 quarterback also rushed 14 times for 93 yards and two touchdowns. Brown caught only three passes but still racked up 71 yards and two scores. Fullback Jonathan Kramer also made the most of his touches, turning his seven carries into 120 rushing yards and a touchdown. Backup quarterback Eric Neal ﬁnished the scoring in the fourth quarter with a 16-yard touchdown run. “We didn’t turn the ball over, we kept it simple,” said Schuman about his team’s execution, adding that on defence the Dukes needed to be sharp going against Handsworth coach Jay Prepchuk who is known for his innovative offence. “He’s a good coach, we know what he does. You’ve got to teach your kids to be disciplined and stay at home,” said Schuman, adding that having a lot of experienced players was important for the Dukes on defence. “They’re all Grade 12s so they’ve seen it for a few years. They were able to work within the scheme, stay at home and not give up the big play and to tackle well. That was the key to the day for us.” Jonathan Kramer and Rudy Uhl led the way with six tackles each while Kevin Marquis added ﬁve tackles and also went six for seven on single point converts. The Dukes also got standout play from linemen David Yaeger and Ross Stevenson at the line of scrimmage, said Schuman. The win put Windsor into third place in the AA Western Conference with a 4-2 record, a big improvement over last
Quarterback Johnny Franklin threw for 317 yards and six touchdowns while also rushing for 114 yards and two more scores in a 62-30 win over New Westminster on Oct. 26 that clinched a spot in the playoffs for the Highlanders and eliminated the Hyacks. “He was pretty unreal that day,” West Van head coach Shawn Anderson told the North Shore News, adding that in his time spent as a player and coach at the high school level he’d never heard of a player in B.C. accounting for eight touchdowns in one game. The Grade 12 quarterback, who is also a high-level hockey player, is only in his ﬁrst year at the position but his athleticism has helped him excel this season, said Anderson. His passing is greatly enhanced by his ability to take off and run with the ball — something that he did numerous times against New West. “We’ve been saving a few things in terms of using (Johnny) as more of a running back type player. We decided to pull that out for this game because we knew the importance of it,” said Anderson. “He gives us the best chance to win. We tried to protect Johnny the majority of the year to make sure that when we needed him to kind of add this element to his game, we were able to use it.” The team went all out

WOMEN Capilano - 62 Quest - 60
The Dukes travelled across town to take on Handsworth Friday in a game that the Royals needed to win to make the playoffs. Instead it was the Dukes who took control, scoring a 41-0 shutout win to usher themselves into the playoffs on a fourgame winning streak. The victory was an economical one for the Dukes as they made the most of their opportunities. Quarterback Ty Marshall’s ﬁrst pass of the game turned into a 47-yard touchdown for star receiver Joel Brown. “Getting that ﬁrst score was key and then we kind of wore them down,” Windsor head coach Jim Schuman said after the game. “They’re a pretty talented team with a good coach so it was important to get up and get control. . . . That was kind of a sigh of relief that we managed to get a strike in there and get a touchdown.”

against New West knowing that they needed one more win to make the playoffs and that their ﬁnal game of the regular season was against powerhouse St. Thomas More. “It was (basically) a playoff game for us,” said Anderson. “If we won we were in, if we lost there was a good chance we were out. We had to pull out all the stops and we really started to use (Johnny) both as a running quarterback and just to let him throw the ball as well. He made some great passes.” The score was 14-0 before New West had a chance to run a single play. The Hyacks fumbled the opening kickoff and West Van recovered in great ﬁeld position. Franklin made them pay right away, rushing 27 yards for a score on the ﬁrst snap. The Highlanders then recovered an onside kick and drove for their second score, a 19-yard pass from Franklin to star receiver Blake Whiteley. From there the rout was on.

Oswald also played a huge part in preparing scoring another major on the ground. “He had a monster game for us — he played awesome,” said the Highlanders to face New West’s tricky single wing offence. “He was calling the defences, knew the plays,” said Anderson. Anderson. “That was really a breakout game for him and for us hopefully it means if teams want to continue to double team “He was running ﬁlm meetings (the week before the game). He Blake, they’re going to have to contend with some of our other really is an unsung hero on this team and one of the major reasons receivers. . . . The huge advantage of having Blake Whiteley is we got to the playoffs.” The Highlanders were back on the ﬁeld last Friday for the he really does draw a double team. We put him to one side of the ﬁeld and had three to four receivers on the other side of the ﬁeld. ﬁnal game of the regular season but, with a playoff spot already When you cover one guy with two guys, somebody is going to wrapped up, came up short in a 40-27 loss to STM, who clinched top spot in the Eastern Conference with a 5-1 regular season end up being open.” The Highlanders got a standout performance on defence from record. The Highlanders ﬁnished at 2-4, good enough for third spot in the Western Conference. They’ll meet Kelowna’s Rutland secondary, third-place ﬁnishers from the Okanagan Conference, to open the playoffs Saturday at 3 p.m. at BC Place Stadium. It’s a big turnaround for the Highlanders who have not made the playoffs since 2007. The team folded halfway through the year in 2010 due to lack of numbers. They came back in 2011 but missed the playoffs following a 1-4 season. The resurgence is a testament to the work the players have done during a difﬁcult time, said Anderson. “They’ve put in a lot of hard work and now they’ve seen some payoff to it which is only going to help our program going forward,” he said. “To try to convince kids to work hard with no playoffs in the past has been very difﬁcult. But now they’ve seen that they can get there and hopefully we can come away with a win or two in the playoffs and see what happens.” The season is already a success — one of the team’s main goals was to make it to BC Place for a playoff game. “That’ll just be the culmination of three to four years since I’ve been here of these kids working hard towards improving their game, not just within the season but also in the offseason and showing that that work ultimately pays off and takes them to the goals that they set out at the beginning of the year.” Now that they’ve made the playoffs, however, the Highlanders will once again hold nothing back in going for wins, said Anderson. “(We’ll) let Blake do what he does, let Johnny do what he does, and really rely on a solid defensive core,” he said. “We’ll pull out every play that we have in the playbook to try and pull off a win.”

From page 45
season when the Dukes went 0-4 in league play to ﬁnish in last place. Most of the players from last year’s squad are back this year. “They played games close (last year) but it ended up games would get away from them and their youth kind of showed,” said Schuman. “They’ve played a lot of football so it’s nice to see them get a chance at having a positive season and getting some wins after putting all that time in. And it’s always fun to get even with the teams that beat ya’ the year before. That’s high school football.” The Dukes will travel to Victoria on Friday to take on Belmont secondary, the second place team in the Southern Conference. The two teams met once before in the preseason with Windsor scoring a 48-20 win at home Sept. 14. The Dukes are hoping for a repeat performance, counting on the fact that they’ve made a lot of improvements since that win. “I feel good about where we’re at,” said Marshall. “I feel like the team is coming together at the most important time.” Game time Friday is 3 p.m. at Goudy Field. Carson Graham also made it into the postseason, ﬁnishing fourth in the Western Conference with a 3-3 record. The Eagles will face Southern Conference champs South Delta Friday at 5:30 p.m. at BC Place.

WILLIAMS, Doreen Elizabeth (nee Reaburn)
Doreen passed away at Lions Gate Hospital on October 30, 2012 following a brief illness and after a long and fulfilling life. She was born in Waskada Manitoba on March 28, 1922, grew up on a farm and developed a life-long love for animals. Doreen married James (Jim) Luther Williams when she was 22, and they lived in Rosetown Saskatchewan, Moncton New Brunswick, and Toronto Ontario before settling in West Vancouver where she lived for over 50 years. Over that time she developed a great circle of friends, and enjoyed curling and social activities as a member of the Capilano Winter Club. Doreen loved her community, and volunteered for many organizations including Meals on Wheels. In recent years she enjoyed exercise classes at the West Van Recreation Centre. Doreen was an avid gardener and loved to feed and take care of animals, especially the squirrels, crows, and Blue Jays that stopped by her porch every day. But her energy was focused on raising a family of five children, and she was always proud of a family that h a d g r own t h r ou g h new generations. She was a loving daughter, wife, mother, and friend. Doreen is predeceased by her father Thomas Herbert Ogden Reaburn, mother Gertrude Reaburn, husband Jim, and grandson Gerry. She is survived by children Terry Williams, Lynne Sjoblom (Ron), Laurie McMurray (Bob), Susan Green (Ken), and Scott Williams (Sheryl), grandchildren MaiAnn, Knox, Cory, Chris, Jenine, Colleen, Megan, Andrew, Craig and Liane as well as seven great grandchildren. The entire family extends their gratitude to home caregivers Mulu, Zenaida, and Imelda for the love and care they provided Doreen. We also thank the nurses, doctors and staff of North Shore Hospice and Lions Gate Hospital for their care, kindness and support through Doreen’s final journey. The family will be holding a private gathering at a future date. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to an organization that helps animals.

Procedure: Grease 10 cups of a cupcake pan, prepare yellow cake according to directions, stir in chopped apples, divide evenly amongst the ten cups of the pan, bake according to instructions. Remove cupcakes from pan and place on a cooling rack. Melt caramels in a double boiler. Carefully dip cupcakes into caramel sauce until coated, letting the excess drip off and then press the tops into small plates of the decorations of your choice. Flatten paper liners and place one completed cupcake on each. Insert a wooden stick into each cupcake.
