Wait times for ER at LGH go online Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

NORTH Shore patients needing emergency medical care will soon be able to check waiting times online before heading off to the ER. Lions Gate Hospital is one of six hospitals in the Vancouver Coastal Health region taking part in a pilot project that will allow the public to log on and check wait times. The “real time dashboard,” set to go live in February, will update every five minutes. It will include wait times in emergency departments at St. Paul’s Hospital downtown, UBC, Vancouver General and Mount. St. Joseph’s hospitals, as well as Lions Gate. The website will show “average” wait times at the emergency department as See ER page 3

Packed Onni hearing goes 6 hours

Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

AFTER more than two years of debate, redesign and controversy, it will still be another week before the City of North Vancouver makes a decision on the proposed redevelopment of the Safeway site at Lonsdale and 13th. City councillors listened to almost six hours of public comment Monday night — the vast majority of speakers in favour of developer Onni’s proposal — before voting to defer their discussion and decision until the regular council meeting of Monday, Nov. 26. “After 15 pages of notes and 93 speakers, I would like time to digest the information I’ve heard tonight,” said Coun. Don Bell before putting forward a motion to defer. Council members are allowed to discuss the project but they

are not allowed to accept any more formal public comment or petitions on the matter now that the consultation period is over. Onni is proposing to build 344 condo units in two towers measuring 180 and 240 feet in height, atop a commercial podium including a new grocery store, as well as 40,000 square feet of office space. The proposal, which almost doubles the density allowed by the official community plan, follows an even bigger project Onni asked to build in 2010, which council rejected. In exchange for the increase in density allowed for the site, Onni is offering 44,000 square feet of non-profit housing (approximately 12 units), childcare space, a $1-million

contribution to the city’s amenity fund, a connection to the Lonsdale Energy Corporation, infrastructure upgrades to the surrounding streets and utilities, $250,000 in public art, green building standards and extra commercial space. When the last speaker left the mic just before 1 a.m., those urging council to approve the development outnumbered those arguing against it by a ratio of about four or five to one. The age of the proposal’s supporters was markedly younger than most council meeting attendees, with the majority describing themselves as “young professionals.” About half a dozen speakers disclosed that they were either working for or connected to Onni. The developer had been caught astroturfing — manufacturing the appearance of grassroots support — earlier in the process, which critics noted at the onset of the public hearing. Many who came to speak noted that neither the size, See Societies page 3

Heritage society seeks new enthusiasts Many members own heritage buildings James Weldon jweldon@nsnews.com

PETER Miller is leading a fight to save history, and he’s looking for new recruits. The West Vancouver resident, president of the North Shore Heritage Preservation Society, has been involved in the non-profit group’s efforts to preserve the community’s historic buildings since it was founded seven years ago. Now, with the organization’s annual general meeting coming up, he’s hoping to attract more likeminded residents to the cause. “We always encourage people to become a member,” said Miller. “They will be part of an organization which is like a watchdog.” The society, which has seen numerous successes in North and West Vancouver, was born, counter-intuitively, from failure. Some years ago, when an elderly resident of Dundarave died without any heirs, her old Craftsman home on Marine Drive came to the attention of the community’s history buffs. “Somebody . . . alerted the District of West Vancouver museum and archive staff and said: ‘There is this whole house that’s like a time capsule,’” said Miller. “The staff went in and looked around and found

PETER Miller, president of the North Shore Heritage Preservation Society, stands outside the recently restored Commercial Block at St. Andrews Avenue and East Eighth Street in North Vancouver. a wonderful treasure trove of domestic effects and clothing.” Staff called up Miller and other members of the community with an interest in heritage preservation, and they scrambled together a proposal aimed at saving the property.

“While we were in the middle of those discussions, somebody bought the house, put it on a barge and took it across to Nanaimo lock stock and barrel,” said Miller. The home’s contents were salvaged, but the loss of the

building itself lit a fire under Miller’s group. They formed the society in 2005, and since then have been involved in the preservation of properties across the North Shore, including Saint Mary’s elementary, Chesterfield Lodge in North

Vancouver, West Vancouver’s Binning House and numerous others. Most recently, they have focused their attention on the historic industrial properties on the North Vancouver waterfront. Many of the group’s 54

members are themselves owners of heritage homes, said Miller. The organization not only offers an opportunity for like-minded people to work and socialize together, he said, but it serves as a resource for members who want information on upkeep, restoration, insurance and other issues relating to their properties. “(Members) have told us they enjoy just the chinwag with a bunch of other homeowners of old buildings,” he said. Miller is hoping the upcoming annual general meeting will attract some new blood. To that end, the group is aiming to keep things interesting. “The formalities are quite brief; they’re usually over in 10 to 15 minutes,” he said. “Then we have a guest presentation.” This year’s speaker is Elaine Graham, resident caretaker of West Vancouver’s Point Atkinson Lighthouse, which was itself threatened with redevelopment recently when the federal government put the building up for sale. “Elaine agreed to come along and show us a little about the history of the place and photographs of lighthouse families who used to live there and (to talk about) the importance of it as a piece of heritage of the West Coast.” The meeting, open to the public, will be held Thursday, from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at West Vancouver’s Silk Purse Gallery on Argyle Avenue. RSVP to 604-926-6096. For more information, visit northshoreheritage.org.

well as how long nine out of 10 people have to wait to see a doctor. It will also show whether wait times at that moment are heading up or down, as well as the locations of nearby walk-in clinics. Clay Adams, vice-president of communications for Vancouver Coastal Health, compared it to online sites showing border wait times. For the health authority, there are two main goals of the project. By allowing people to check wait times, administrators hope to smooth out some of the peaks and valleys in ER use that may see some departments overloaded while other hospitals aren’t. Officials also hope the forewarning will help moderate the public’s expectations. The project comes at a time of increasing emergency department use across the province. In the last fiscal year, there were about 53,700 visits to Lions Gate’s ER. That’s an increase of about 30 per cent in the past six years, said Adams. This year the trend is continuing. “They’re telling me we’re up two per cent,” over last year, in the number of ER visits, said Adams. Both an increasing and aging population are thought to be driving that spike. Wait times at different ERs in the region can vary considerably, even on an hourly basis “Often it’s just fluke,” said Dr. Alec Ritchie, an emergency room doctor at Lions Gate Hospital. “It could be that Vancouver General’s having a bad day.” Generally, waiting times at Lions Gate’s ER fall into the middle range of highs and lows across the region. Both Ritchie and Adams stress numbers on the online site won’t affect the triage that takes place in hospital emergency rooms. That system — which assigns patients a code depending on the seriousness of their symptoms — will still see people in more acute medical crises moved to the front of the line, while those with less serious problems will have to wait longer. Those with immediate medical emergencies shouldn’t even think about the dashboard, said Adams.

“If you’re having a heart attack, don’t log on. Phone 9-11.” The system is designed to be helpful for people in less immediate situations, who might have a broken finger or are experiencing abdominal pain, for instance. The dashboard — developed by Dr. Eric Grafstein, head of emergency rooms for Vancouver Coastal Health — was originally developed to provide “real time” information about ER loads to emergency room staff themselves and to ambulance attendants. Adams said people are often surprised to discover that information isn’t already available in the health system. Emergency staff and ambulance crews will have access to more detailed versions of the public site when it is launched. The website cost about $300,000 to develop and is expected to cost between $20,000 and $25,000 a year to operate. Similar websites operate in several cities in the United States. A version of the site spearheaded by Grafstein’s former colleague Dr. Grant Innis is also operated in Calgary and Edmonton. “They’ve had a lot of web traffic to it,” said Adams. Adams acknowledged there have been concerns voiced about the dashboard. Some people fear it will drive up ER traffic to their normally quiet local emergency departments or that older people who aren’t Internet savvy will be at a disadvantage. Others fear it could lead to a general increase in visits. Ritchie said he doesn’t think the last concern is likely. Most people will avoid ERs if they can, he said. “Emergency departments are not nice places to be particularly. . . . It’s a stressful, busy, active place.” The dashboard is the latest in a series of projects aimed at managing ER wait times. For the past five years, Lions Gate and other hospitals in the region have been experimenting with a system that pays health facilities a sum of money for every patient they treat within a set period of time. Under the program, hospitals are rewarded for getting patients in and out of ER within certain time limits. Changes have involved streamlining the admitting process in the emergency department and making sure cleaning staff are always available so that beds can be quickly made ready for a doctor to examine the next patient.

nor the density bothered them, and they looked forward to the addition of childcare space and non-profit housing, the boost that would come to the city’s core with such a massive revitalization project and the potential to bring down housing costs in the city by increasing the supply. Onni also won support from members of the business community, several of whom noted that a lack of commercial office space is already driving large employers off the North Shore. The president of the neighbouring Grande condo’s strata council also said the majority of her building’s residents approve of Onni’s plan, and that it was much improved from the 2010 design, which featured three 180-foot towers. Several non-profit housing groups also appeared to support the plan. If approved, council will have to select a group to run the units. While everyone agreed the site, frequently referred to as an “eyesore,” is due to be torn down and replaced with new commercial and residential complex, the proposal’s critics argued that it is too tall, too dense and too ugly. “I promised myself 12 years ago I would not come back to council, but on Oct. 26 I opened the North Shore News and saw this monstrosity facing me. I was really angry and I thought I should come address it,” said former councillor John Braithwaite who was one of the first to speak. Braithwaite urged council to hold out until Onni came back with another more suitable project. “It’s got to be better designed. Incidentally, developers shouldn’t be telling this council, or any council, what they’re going to give us and what they’re going to get. You’ve got to listen to what the people are saying,” he said. High on the list of concerns for even cautious supporters of the proposal was traffic ingress. As is, the plan calls for 55 per cent of vehicle traffic to enter the site via Westbound 13th Avenue, and 45 per cent, including all delivery trucks, to enter via 14th — whose residents decried the plan as a traffic nightmare for what is now a pedestrian friendly street.

Chief lauds NDP for COME pipeline opposition TOGETHER for the Holidays Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

CHIEF Justin George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation has made it clear he intends to make opposing Kinder Morgan’s proposal to expand its pipeline a political issue. Last week, George praised federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair for comments Mulcair made in Victoria opposing the pipeline proposal.

George said in a press statement he agreed with Mulcair’s comments that criticized the Conservative government for “gutting” the environmental review process for the project, which Mulcair said made the review meaningless. George said he agreed with Mulcair that without a solid review process, the pipeline shouldn’t be considered. The Tsleil-Waututh, whose land is directly opposite Burrard Inlet from the Westridge terminal where Kinder Morgan’s oil tankers load, has

been vocal about its opposition to the project. George has said the environmental risks of the project are too high and that the project offers few local benefits while communities along the inlet will face most of the risks. If the project is approved, the number of oil tankers in Burrard inlet would jump to 365 a year from about 70 currently. In his press statement, George made it clear his Nation is prepared to continue making the pipeline a political issue. “Tsleil-Waututh Nation will continue to reach out to municipal, provincial, and federal leaders from all parties to encourage them to clearly state their position on this issue,” George said in the statement. “The Nation is committed to working with political parties who are opposed to the pipelines and who want to see Canada’s environmental assessment processes restored and rejuvenated.” All three local governments have voiced concerns about the increased potential for oil spills with more tanker traffic. Many of the 75 people who showed up for a Kinder Morganhosted public information meeting on the company’s proposal to twin the Trans Mountain pipeline earlier this month voiced their opposition.

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

Finding neutral T

HE revelation this week that the B.C. Liberals used government staff to build a partisan website has highlighted a deep-seated problem with government communications that reaches beyond the boundaries of our province. The use of public employees to develop CantAffordDix.ca, a political site aimed at undermining NDP leader Adrian Dix, is deplorable, but hardly out of the ordinary. Communications personnel occupy a grey area in governments across the country. While they are ostensibly employed by taxpayers to act as neutral liaisons between the government and the public, the messages they convey are frequently tailored to advance the interests of the party in power. Too often, the press releases, public events and ad campaigns they help organize

are clearly designed to sway voters more than to inform them. This is as true at the federal level and in other provinces as it is in British Columbia. The CantAffordDix issue is just an unusually blatant example of this practice, but that doesn’t make any of it right. Critics are calling for an independent audit of the CantAffordDix site and of the work that went into it. They’re right to do so, but the probe shouldn’t stop there. B.C.’s auditor general should take a hard look at government communications and advertising generally, with an eye to ferreting out abuses, creating clear boundaries and setting up mechanisms to begin curbing misuse in future. It’s only through independent oversight that we will ensure our tax dollars are used to promote the interests of the public, not of a single party.

Veterans receive the support they need

Dear Editor: We would like to respond to the letter published Nov. 16, MPs Forget Forces’ Treatment. The New Veterans Charter was designed around the fundamental principles of modern disability management, wellness and reintegration and was passed with all-party support. The charter provides a suite of benefits to assist veterans as they transition from military to civilian life. In addition to providing financial benefits, the charter offers veterans and their families comprehensive rehabilitation services, career transition services, jobplacement services, retirement benefits, health benefits and access to operational stress injury clinics.

In 2011, our government responded to suggestions from veterans and introduced the enhanced New Veterans Charter Act. These enhancements offered flexible payment options for disability awards; improved access to monthly benefits for approximately 3,500 seriously disabled veterans; provided an additional funding to approximately 500 veterans who cannot be suitably, gainfully employed; and provided a minimum annual pre-tax income of $40,000 for veterans participating in VAC’s rehabilitation program. With these enhancements, our most ill and injured veterans are guaranteed an income of $58,000 a year as well as a one-time payment of $293,308. Our government has consistently acted to ensure

veterans are receiving the support they need. We are cutting red tape so that veterans and their families receive the hassle-free service they deserve. Through the Veterans Transition Action Plan we are putting in place improved measures to assist veterans as they transition from military to civilian life. Whether through the charter, cutting red tape or the Veterans Transition Action Plan our government continues to respond to the changing needs of Canada’s veterans and their families and is ensuring they have the support they need when and where they need it. Andrew Saxton, M.P., North Vancouver John Weston, MP, West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast -Sea to Sky Country,

Democracy and numbers; participation is critical Dear Editor: With regard to John Sharpe’s Oct. 31 letter, Meeting numbers a figure of the imagination: In his criticism of Mayor Richard Walton’s statements regarding the numbers of participants in the OCP process, Sharpe makes an error in assuming that those who did not engage in the numerous and well publicized meetings represent opposition to the 2030 OCP. The 20 per cent of the eligible voters that voted during the election determined its outcome, despite whomever the non-participating 80 per cent may

have thought more deserving of public office. By not participating the non-voters made their opinion meaningless. Decisions are determined by those who participate, not by those who stay at home. Similarly, the OCP process was open to every resident in the district. At every event those who attended voiced overwhelming support based on a wide range of criteria framed within a wide perspective. These included concerns for housing for seniors and young people, viable transit options that would counter what has become virtually mandatory automobile use, or the long-term fiscal health of the District of North

Vancouver and its ability to provide increasing services to residents without imposing crippling taxes. At every event, those planning, supporting and putting their efforts into a vision for the future far exceeded any number of voices calling for the district to be hermetically sealed into an animated snow globe of life as it looked in “the good old days.” Just like an election, those who show up make the difference to outcomes. This is democracy. This is how it works. Doug Curran North Vancouver

Who hasn’t had a little work done? Dear Editor: In addition to scrutinizing the planned development for the 1300-block in Ambleside in isolation, residents should also take a slightly more holistic view that extends from the start of Ambleside to the end. Imagine an entry into Ambleside that includes the chic alpine fourplex and new service station to the right and the planned development on the left. You’ll know you’ve entered a distinct area. Travel Marine Drive dotted with shops till you exit at 22nd Street in view of the beautiful recreation centre and the curvy new seniors’ residence. It’s no more “West End” than it is Carmel, Calif., it is uniquely West Vancouver with — as they say — a little work done. Patrick Malone West Vancouver

Who exactly is reshaping the North Shore? “Metro Vancouver 2040: Shaping our Future was adopted on July 29, 2011 after being unanimously accepted by all local governments in the region. The Regional Growth Strategy looks out to 2040 and provides a framework on how to accommodate the over one million people and 600,000 new jobs. . . .” Metro Vancouver

Just Asking

Elizabeth James

POPULATION and job estimates notwithstanding, who is making the decisions about how North Shore municipalities evolve? Is it elected councils whose autonomy was said to have been strengthened by the 2003 Community Charter? Is it members of the Metro Vancouver board that we still cannot elect to their regional ambitions? Is it the provincial government that, by pulling the strings of Metro, TransLink and school districts, renders municipal budgets vulnerable to development overkill? Or is it simply that developers see North Shore municipalities as ripe for the plucking? Whatever the answers, one only needs to travel across the three communities to know there must be a reason behind the drastic (out-of-control?)

escalation of construction that has occurred over the past five years. There is barely one main route clear of contractors’ barriers and traffic delays. For decades now, North Shore municipalities have been mired in a city bog of “not going to discuss it” amalgamation resistance. But when their zoning decisions and transportation corridors are inextricably linked, residents have a right to expect councils to co-operate and to draft official community plans that complement one another. Decisions by the city to approve wall-to-wall density force its neighbours to underwrite the cost of recreation facilities. The potential Lynn Valley Town Centre proposal in the District of North Vancouver is another example: Does it make sense to consider three highrise towers at that

practice, the result has been quite the opposite, especially on the North Shore. Councils are caught playing the role of arbitrator between developers, the dictates of Metro and citizens awash in expensive “public input” sessions that attendees perceive to be little more than “this is what we plan to do — any questions?” Developers’ interests lie in maximizing their bottom line. Few would have a problem with that provided municipal bylaws are respected and councils protect the wellbeing of residents by standing firm on those rules. The problem arises when, over and over again, councils buckle too readily when developers apply the pressure — and the outcomes have driven some citizens to check the lists of election campaign donations. The formula goes like this: A developer presents an application to council, often with the active encouragement of staff. The density and scope of the project are wildly at variance with OCP guidelines and zoning bylaws and, as former city mayoralty candidate Ron Polly said, “That’s where the dance begins.” The dance continues, often over many expensive years for all concerned, until at long last, the project is given the

location, when the traffic they generate will end up on the city’s Grand Boulevard? Vehicular access to Highway 1 and to that north-south corridor — a designated Emergency Route — is already jammed at several points on weekdays. Even without the towers, fire trucks and ambulances have nowhere to go when three lanes of traffic are at a red-light standstill. What of the imminent problems at the Low Level Road-Fern Street-Main Street access points when those projects go ahead? Where are the transit plans and where will the recreation facilities go? But before we discuss the emergent problems associated with specific development proposals, we need to know what makes all this activity possible. The cracks appeared when the first Campbell government tinkered with the long-standing Local Government Act and added the new Charter. By default, this enhanced the powers of regional government and gave the province a direct conduit through which to exert its policies on the local scene. The changes were made on the pretext of giving councils more freedom to conduct their local affairs and of allowing citizens a greater voice in their community. In

go-ahead — likely at the level the developer had in mind all along and way beyond the OCP vision. Two things make that possible: the Charter that diminished citizens’ rights to referendum and recall and the dictates of the Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy. Ostensibly, the RGS was an innocent but necessary update to the GVRD 1996 Livable Region Strategy. But when

Metro Vancouver applied the force of an artificial deadline for unanimous ratification by all councils in the region, the varied concerns many councils expressed received little attention as municipalities rammed the draft through with insufficient time for sober thought.

Regional strategy gets mixed reviews

BLACK FRIDAY

From page 7 be protected as a special study area and then ended up with two contentious developments of its own, while the City of Coquitlam balked at Metro’s new urban containment boundaries. Last June, District of North Vancouver Coun. Mike Little told me his opinion of the process: “I believe the [RGS review] process was a waste of resources,” he began. “It sought to stop a locally elected council from being able to change its land uses without [first] getting assent from the region. While the province required us to sign a regional strategy, it never directed the regions to include a clause that overrules local authority.” Little then explained that, because the district had just completed its “20-year visioning process through the OCP” council felt confident that “what [it] was locking in” to the RGS was “a good fit.” I don’t share his confidence. Although the district OCP designated the areas currently under developer assault as being suitable for some increase in density, I doubt residents anticipated the totality of the increases now being proposed. And in the final analysis, should it not be residents who approve these decisions? rimco@shaw.ca

Weston a fan of FIPA with China Agreement critical for foreign investment: MP John Gleeson

Coast Reporter

MEMBER of Parliament John Weston is robustly defending Canada’s new bilateral trade agreement with China, saying it represents a significant breakthrough with the Asian giant. “The level of transparency anticipated by this agreement is higher than any other China has agreed to,” the MP for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country said in a phone interview from Ottawa recently. As an international lawyer who spent a decade in Asia, Weston said he wished the agreement had been in place “when clients of mine were reliant on the Chinese judicial system.” The Foreign Investment and Protection Agreement (FIPA), which the Conservative government can now ratify by order-in-council, became the target of a mass letter-writing campaign to MPs and newspapers, some of it spearheaded by the advocacy group Leadnow.ca, which calls the FIPA “the most disturbing trade deal in a generation.” The Green Party, the federal NDP, and academics including Osgoode Hall Law School professor Gus Van Harten, an international treaty expert, have also come out strongly against the pact. Critics say the FIPA short-changes Canadian interests by favouring China for market access and could lead to costly arbitration settlements for Canadian taxpayers. But Weston said the deal sets new standards for transparency. Article 28, he said, guarantees public

access to relevant documents and awards, and sets terms for public hearings when disputes occur. It also “deftly” protects commercial interests from indiscreet disclosure of sensitive information. This is new “transparency language” for China, he said. At the same time, “both Canada and China retain the right to regulate in the public interest, and both parties have committed to do so in a non-discriminatory manner,” Weston said. “And we still have all sorts of best-practices laws and regulations that all foreign investors have to adhere to.” Weston called FIPA “a critical step for attracting foreign investment” and said it is consistent with bilateral agreements negotiated by Canada with 24 other countries. “With this agreement in place, for the first time, Canadian investors in the world’s second-biggest economy will have recourse to independent, trustworthy and well-respected international arbitration systems,” he wrote in his response letter to concerned constituents. “Our government has an ambitious pro-trade agenda and is committed to opening markets in the Asia-Pacific.” Answering critics of the process, Weston noted that in 2008 the Conservatives introduced a new policy of tabling international treaties in the House of Commons, reflecting the government’s “commitment to transparency and accountability.” The agreement with China, he said, does not represent the kind of “sea change” that NAFTA ushered in. “It’s not a difference in the way we do business,” he said. Weston said he attended a briefing in Ottawa with foreign affairs officials arranged by the Green Party’s Elizabeth May, discussed FIPA with Minister of International Trade Ed Fast and officials in his department, and “did a lot of homework” in an effort to understand the agreement.

Todd Major ACCORDING to the Farmer’s Almanac, this winter will bring “another active storm track over the Pacific Ocean that will guide systems into southern and central British Columbia and western Alberta, giving them a wetter-than-normal winter.”

Some weather forecasters say there’s no La Nina and no El Nino occurring this year and accordingly, we will have a normal winter. One thing is for sure, the garden needs to be put to bed before the worst of the winter weather arrives because when it’s pouring rain, freezing or snowing outside, it’s too late to do much winter protection. So here’s a list of winter preparation recommendations for the garden. ■ Roses: All shrub-like roses should be cut back by onethird of their total height to prevent wind, rock and snow damage using square pruning cuts only. On climbing roses, cut back only the longest extension growths from this season to prevent wind and snow damage. All roses should be completely defoliated now to remove every last leaf from the plant. And all rose leaves should be picked up off the ground. Dispose of all rose leaves into the green waste. Removal of all leaves from roses and the soil will clean the garden of disease preventing reinfection of roses

CUTTING and layering gunnera leaves makes a good insulator for the plant. next spring from spores that overwinter on the leaves. ■ Mulching: I know that I talk about this too much, but if you were going to mulch at one time of the year, fall would be the best. Beyond soil fertility and weed suppression benefits, mulching in the fall prevents soil damage that occurs each time a rain drop impacts the soil, destroying and compacting the soil’s structure. There’s

a mulch for every person’s taste. Regular bark mulch suits almost any garden. Wood chips, if you can find them, are excellent for trees and shrubs. Composted bark mulch is for when you want the dark black agricultural look. And compost or manure is for the permaculturist types. Beyond the soil health benefits, a well-chosen and properly installed mulch will dramatically improve the

IN a country as large and diverse as Canada it is no surprise that the weather can range from one extreme to another. And with that diversity comes dialogue, fueling conversations from one side of

the country to the other. No one has more to say about the weather than Chris St. Clair with his long-standing role on the Weather Network. The book is filled with weather trivia such as the two records Prince George holds, most rainfall at 2,552mm every year and most hours of cloud cover (6,123 hours). But there is more than just facts. St. Clair gives explanations of how weather systems

work. Through illustrations and photographs we gain understanding of how events like tornadoes are born. The four seasons are depicted across the country showing the best and worst of the weather. There is a special section devoted to Canadian weather disasters. This includes the ice storm of 1998, and the fires in the Okanagan in 2003. — Terry Peters

Are you prepared to handle a power outage? Most people are not. In addition to the obvious loss of light, a power outage during the winter could result in the loss of heat and burst pipes. A power outage in warm weather climates could result in the loss of air conditioning and mold damage. In any climate, food left in refrigerators or freezers without power is likely to spoil. These are significant issues with expensive consequences. Luckily, they can be avoided.

KRISTEN Schulz, 12, has won a Governor General’s Award for her film project, The Heritage of My Home, which explores this history of her 1926 house.

North Van heritage film wins national award

ROSS Road elementary student Kristen Schulz is one of six student filmmakers that will soon be honoured at the Governor General’s Awards at Rideau Hall in Ottawa, Ont.

Schulz, 12, is one of approximately 200 students between grades 4 and 11 who hoisted video cameras this year to highlight a historically significant milestone in Canada or in their community. The North Vancouver student’s film, The Heritage of My Home, was one of the six movies to register the most online votes, as well as being selected by a panel of judges. In her film, Schulz researches her 1926 home, discovering that a former inhabitant was District of North Vancouver commissioner Sam Sowden. She also makes a plea for preservation of heritage homes. Schulz’s film, as well as the work of her fellow award winners, will be screened on Dec. 9 at the National History Forum in Ottawa. The award ceremony will take place on Dec. 10. — Jeremy Shepherd

Chalk makes labels stand out especially creative when they take the time to put some thought into the wrapping. Sometimes it’s the simplest ideas that are the best. Here is a gift-wrap idea for a birthday, anniversary or perhaps another upcoming event you may have. Remember to use a brightly coloured paper to really make the label pop.

Home Ideas

Barb Lunter I am always looking for new ways to wrap a gift.

Lynn Valley Road & Mountain Hwy • www.shoplynnvalley.com

I love how people can be

Materials: Martha Stewart’s Chalk Labels (available at Michaels Crafts) Brightly coloured wrapping paper

Tape and scissors White Chalk Ribbon (optional) Choose a box that is large enough to accommodate the label. Wrap the gift in the wrapping paper and set aside. Remove one of the labels from the package and carefully line it up on the topside of the gift so it is centred. Write the name of the recipient on the label. You can also use these labels for mason jars filled with pantry items. Fill your assorted jars with your food items and place a label on

one side on the jar. Write the name of the contents on the label with chalk and display on your shelf. The label name may be changed over time with a simple damp cloth. Another cute wrapping idea is to use wide, sinamay ribbon over tissue paper. This straw-like ribbon can be found at craft stores and is wonderful over gifts. Wrap your gift in a corresponding tissue paper first then cover with the ribbon and tie a large bow on top. The ribbon naturally curls at the top and is very pretty. barb@lunter.ca

Colourful plants add cheer to long winter From page 13

all organisms that live there. Accordingly, clean but don’t be obsessive about your cleanliness. Leave some organic matter (food) for soil and plants. If you cannot stand to leave anything then replenish the garden’s ecology by installing some mulch. When it comes to cutting back perennials, cut back all old foliage to the ground but leave attractive flower stalks standing for the winter to add interest in the garden. ■ Winter protection for tender plants: If you grow gunnera, lemon trees, fan palms or any other marginally hardy plant, now is the time to protect them before the real winter weather arrives. For gunnera, you have to cut off all the leaves and remove the long leaf-stems and then pile the leaves upside down on top of the large pink gunnera buds to protect them from freezing. For palm trees, lemon trees and other tender plants that are grown in the ground, a more elaborate winter protection system is needed. You can build a mini-greenhouse out of plastic and wood to prevent freeze damage. But those structures require regular venting to prevent moisture buildup and ensuing mould growth. Or you can wrap and cover the entire plant with straw, burlap and plastic. Some people install

Christmas lights inside of the plastic structure for heat, which can work as long as it does not get to hot or too humid inside the plastic. Either way, do it now, not later, because once those tender plants freeze, it’s game over. ■ Add plants with colour for winter: Lastly and most importantly, plant colourful plants to adorn the winter garden and cheer up your spirits through the long winter ahead. Plant many colourful winter pansies in the garden beds, along the driveway, in pots near the house or outside of that particular view window. Plant colourful foliage shrubs such as gold-leaved heathers, blue-leaved conifers or variegated broad-leaved shrubs to add colour by the house. And fall asters and chrysanthemums always brighten up and personalize the entry to the front door. At my house I regularly cut attractive foliage and seed heads from the garden and arrange them in a vase at the front door to greet my visitors during winter. If your garden doesn’t provide enough material to cut, visit the local florist or garden centre to find fresh cuts for the front door or kitchen table.

Help kids develop empathy Parenting Today Kathy Lynn

CHRISTMAS is a time for giving and receiving.

Many parents are concerned that for their children it is only a time for receiving. We want to buy gifts for our kids; we want them to have a great time. But, at the same time, we want them to know how fortunate they are. How can we help our kids become aware of other children who are needy? How can we help them develop empathy? And is that the same as sympathy? Not exactly. When we are sympathetic we feel badly about another’s situation. We

care. When we are empathetic, we can put ourselves in the shoes of another. For example, we see a neighbour carrying a bag of groceries. She trips and falls, spilling the contents all over the road. We are sympathetic and run to make sure she’s OK. We help her get back on her feet and we pick up the spilled groceries. If we are empathetic, we act the same way but can put ourselves in her place. We are aware of what she may be feeling while we help her back on her feet. So how do we do this

Young artist of the week

with our kids? And, more importantly, how can we do it at this time of year when they are getting so much? Young children are selfcentred. They see the world through their own eyes and experience and this is typical and developmentally appropriate. They are also concrete thinkers. They understand what they can touch and see. So simply talking about the reality for less well-off kids is not as successful as giving them concrete actions to take. See Involve page 30

Thanks to Werner and Hildegard Hesses’ legacy I have been able to fully focus on my research for 3 years and, in so doing, help provide solutions to environmental problems.

Involve children in holiday preparations to foster empathy From page 29

NEWS photo Mike Wakefield

LET your child choose a charity for holiday giving.

One way you can help them not only be empathetic but also generous and helpful to other children is to take a look at the World Vision (worldvision.ca/gifts) catalogue. You’ve heard about people who buy chickens, a goat or a cow for a struggling family. You can let your child make the choice. This is concrete. The catalogue will show you not only what is available but also exactly how it helps a family. And

your child will know that he thought outside of himself and his needs. He put himself in the place of a child who needs food or water. It’s real and worthwhile, a great gift for the grandparents who have downsized and do not need more stuff. You can also sit down with your child and go through his toy collection. Which toys has he outgrown? Are they still in good shape? If so, donate them to an agency or organization that can use them and bring your child

Greenhouse serves families

THANKS to the efforts of a number of community members, Capilano Care Centre residents and their families have a new greenhouse to enjoy, offering an outdoor place of quiet, unifying refuge.

According to a written statement, president Rob Huffman and long-standing employee Donald Mitchell of Carefree Greenery Ltd., a full service landscaper on the North Shore

since 1984, led the project with the support of a number of community partners including Home Depot’s Team Depot from the Park Royal store, Creative Bricks and Blocks Ltd., Dalton Trucking Ltd. and Revera Living’s executive director Chris Mitchell at Capilano Care Centre. The greenhouse was dedicated to Ingrid and Terence Walsh of West Vancouver and all families in the community in a ceremony on Oct. 30.

Family Services Of The North Shore SOCIETY

The Journey Continues Full Cycle Though not everyone was excited to see the return of heavy rain in late October, it opened the floodgates for the spectacle of spawning salmon returning to North Shore rivers and streams. At the Brothers Creek viewing platform, located east of Taylor Way on Keith Road, for example, wide-eyed children could see up close both Coho and Chum salmon pairing to spawn and complete their final journey. The Coho Society continues to fund partnership groups on the North Shore who share a similar vision to see that salmon once again become part of the fabric of our ecosystem. These funding initiatives contribute to sustainability and include – fish tanks in classrooms for salmonid education for youth; field trips for experiential environmental studies; research water temperatures in our streams and effects on salmon; Adopt-A-Fish where children adopt salmon fry for release into streams. In the past year, the society made a $10,000 contribution to West Vancouver Streamkeepers towards the construction of a new salmon rearing pond in McDonald Creek in West Vancouver. It is planned to be finished in early 2013. The Coho Society provided a Coho Festival grant to fund the Heywood Park Community Hatchery and Stewardship Project designed for public education and awareness of the importance of protecting salmon and their habitat. This year’s annual Coho Festival grew to a two day, zero-waste festival complete with their famous salmon BBQ, Stewardship Zone, live music, art and participation of First Nation people.

The Gordon And Marion Smith Foundation for Young Artists 2121 LONSDALE AVENUE, NORTH VANCOUVER

Our Focus

The Gordon and Marion Smith Foundation for Young Artists was established to support Artists for Kids (AfK) and its one-of-a-kind art education program and its new public art gallery, the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art. Through Artists for Kids programs, students, teachers and artists are brought together in a highly enriched learning environment, where insight, skills and stories are shared.

Our People

The Smith Foundation is comprised of a dynamic board of 11 Directors, community leaders, with strong backgrounds in education, art and legacy building. In addition, through the support of our artist-patrons, including Gordon Smith, the stories and insights of one generation of artists are shared with the next.

Our work in the community We believe art changes lives, builds communities and touches souls so we proudly support Artists for Kids (AfK) and the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art, home to the AfK permanent teaching collection. Their programs enrich the ability of our students to learn first hand from those who have come before them. To continue to support this work, we have embarked on an endowment campaign to raise $5 million to ensure the ongoing viability of Artists for Kids and the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art.

Testimonial “I’ve been involved with the Smith Foundation for years. Macquarie has joined me in funding endowments and scholarships as well as supporting the Gordon Smith Gallery as a resource for young people in our community. It’s rewarding to see these resources help provide wider access to the visual arts.” – Richard Savage, Senior Vice President, Macquarie Private Wealth

Events The Smith Foundation will produce a summer exhibition in the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art -- Know Your Treasures --- from May 15 through September 14, 2013. The exhibition will formally introduce the community to the extensive teaching collection of Canadian art that the Artists for Kids program has been acquiring since it began in 1989. These works depict the significant ideas of our country’s leading artists, including painting, sculpture, photography, drawing and print-making. Community programming accompanying the exhibition will include weekly “Artist and Curator Voice” presentations, “Lunch and Learn”, and “Sensational Saturday Morning” classes, further engaging audiences, young and old, with AfK artists and their art forms.

Habitat for Humanity Society North Vancouver ReStore 126 HARBOUR AVENUE, NORTH VANCOUVER

Our Focus

Habitat for Humanity is a worldwide organization dedicated to lifting families out of substandard and poverty housing by building home they can afford to own. Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver relies on volunteers, generous donors and in-kind donations of materials and labour to build affordable home ownership opportunities for modest-income families in Metro Vancouver. Our work is supported by three ReStores in South Vancouver, Burnaby and North Vancouver, which are largely staffed by volunteers.

Our People

Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver is coming to the North Shore, and will be opening a ReStore in November, 2012. We have a store manager and limited staff in our North Vancouver ReStore. However a majority of the people who work at our build sites and at our ReStores are dedicated volunteers. We thank the people of the North Shore and all our volunteers for supporting us.

contact us telephone 604 985 5618 email info@habitatgv.ca internet www.habitatgv.ca ReStores www.restoresgv.ca

Our work in the community An estimated 1.5 million Canadian families live in substandard housing, and the number is growing each year. The challenge in Metro Vancouver is particularly acute with some of highest land and building costs in North America. In 2012 we participated with Westbank and VanCity on an affordable-ownership project at 60 West Cordova in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Four families moved in during the spring. We are also completing the final phase of a six-unit townhome project in Burnaby, which will home to six partner families in early 2013. We are looking at further housing opportunities in all areas of Metro Vancouver, including the North Shore.

Upcoming events Watch out in 2013 for Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver at a number of special events and community festivals on the North Shore. Our regular events include: • Spring Vancouver Home and Garden Show at B.C. Place Stadium • Fall Vancouver Home and Design Show at B.C. Place Stadium • Gordon Food Services Fall Food Show at the Pacific Coliseum

A recent donation helped by Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver was grateful to receive a generous donation of $100,000 from the Alpha Technologies Group. This commitment will help us complete our Burnaby Townhome project, and means that six partner families will receive the keys to their new homes in 2013.

How you can get involved There are opportunities for people to support Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver on the North Shore: • Volunteer at the North Vancouver ReStore, 126 Harbour Ave. • Donate: Make a donation either on-line or through our office, or donate good quality building and construction materials to the North Vancouver ReStore • Help us build: We need volunteers, in-kind donations of materials or labour from skilled trades-people; and donors to help fund the cost of home construction.

Impact in the community In one of the wealthiest communities in Canada, critical family needs are often hidden and services are scarce for those who find themselves in desperate times. As crises occur and families must spend most of their incomes on accommodation, many are forced to go without food, medicine, dental care and other necessities, just to remain housed. Each child who begins school below developmental standards suffers hugely, as does the social and economic health and the future of the community. Our mission is to provide a holistic support network to address the needs of vulnerable children and adults. Helping to restore our neighbours to health and stability benefits our whole community.

Fast Facts Last year, Harvest Project provided more than 3,000 coaching and drop-in sessions, food valued at $600,000, and 800 clothing outfits supplied through our social-enterprise thrift store. We received more than 18,000 volunteer-hours, thanks to 150+ volunteers from across the North Shore. We served up to 500 individuals and families each month: · 40% of clients are single parents with their children · 40% of clients are new residents and immigrants · 20% of clients are seniors or individuals with chronic health challenges.

Our Focus

The goal of Lions Gate Hospital Foundation is to provide the highest quality health care to patients. The Foundation raises funds to purchase state-of-theart medical equipment, improve patient care facilities, support physician and staff education, and research.

Lisa Reinders - Executive Director

North Shore Stroke Recovery Centre INMAN ROOM, NS NEIGHBOURHOOD HOUSE, 225 EAST 2ND ST., NORTH VANCOUVER

Our Focus

The North Shore Stroke Recovery Centre’s mission is to assist stroke survivors and their families to recover to the best of their abilities in all aspects of their life.

Our People

With only 4 part-time employees and 4 part-time therapists, we are able to provide over 30 hours of group and 1:1 therapy every week. This service is only possible with the 95 hours per week of support received from dedicated North Shore volunteers. We thank the community for this ongoing and much appreciated support.

Facts

Every year there are over 6500 British Columbians afflicted by stroke - many of whom are left with debilitating conditions. The services provided at the North Shore Stroke Recovery Centre gives stroke survivors the strong peer support & continued therapy that they need to help them recover to the best of their ability.

contact us telephone 778 340 5803 email info@nssrc.org internet www.nssrc.org

Our work in the community Since 1974 we have been the North Shore’s main service provider of stroke recovery and community reintegration services for individuals no longer receiving outpatient rehabilitation. The Centre operates in two locations – North Shore Neighbourhood House in North Vancouver and St. Stephen’s Anglican Church in West Vancouver - and our services have expanded to include almost 1400 hours of speech, music and exercise therapy per year. Increased therapy improves the outcome for stroke survivors after a brain attack and as a result reduces the burden on the medical community for these patients.

Testimonial “I am 64 years old and had my stroke in March 2010. My left side has been affected and I get around in a wheelchair or scooter. I joined North Shore Stroke Recovery Centre in September 2010. The Centre is 100% beneficial to everyone that attends. I have made many good friends and realize it is a special place. The coordinators and volunteers are all amazing – their help allows us to keep our self esteem and confidence intact and enables us to continue our physical and mental progress. The smallest progress is huge! They do all they can for our benefit. It’s a great organization and helps a lot of people who otherwise would have no help.”

Donations Help Through the help of donations from local service clubs and the B.C. Gaming fund we have been able to purchase iPads to augment our speech therapy program. Many members use a variety of apps on these devices to target skills in areas such as memory, cognition, language and attention. For some, a stroke can severely limit one’s ability to speak and the iPad can be a valuable tool in helping them to express their thoughts through a customizable communication app. The possibilities are endless and each week we are discovering new and exciting apps that encourage our members to learn and adapt.

How you can get involved We need your support in order to continue providing this valuable service to our Stroke Survivors. We urge you to volunteer or make a donation at www.nssrc.org

A Family Legacy of Giving As Development Liaison Officer for UBC’s Development and Alumni Engagement Department, Kate Bush knows firsthand how estate gifts to the University help shape the experience of students through financial aid, academic opportunities, and extracurricular initiatives. In 1997, Kate decided to make a bequest for undergraduate awards in Medicine: “I couldn’t give a gift in real time, so I thought an estate gift was a good solution,” she explains. “It takes an organization like UBC to find a cure for major diseases like cancer, which is prevalent in our family. If I could contribute towards a cure, even in some small way—well, that would be awesome.” Kate’s generosity inspired her husband and daughter, who are also members of the UBC community, to follow suit. Robert is an alumnus who has worked in Plant Operations at UBC for almost 34 years while Laura works in Campus and Community Planning and is pursuing her degree at UBC part time. As a graduate of Physical Education, Robert plans to leave his bequest to the Athletics Department while Laura’s gift is currently undesignated, so it can be put towards the area of greatest need. Robert’s decision to donate to UBC was founded in a strong personal conviction that higher education leads to a stronger society: “Kate talked about donating and I thought it was a good idea,” he says. “I’ve come to realize that the most important institution in the province is not government, but the university. Higher education means higher wages. If people want more money in the province, it’s important to support the university.” Kate, Robert and Laura all agree that financial need shouldn’t bar any student from university. “If my gift helps someone gain access to higher education, that would be great,” says Laura. “People who undertake university on their own, without the help of parents or scholarship money, have a really hard time,” says Kate. “I like the idea of making someone’s life a little easier.” “Besides,” adds Robert, “you never know. The money you put towards UBC could benefit you in ways you never thought possible.”

This grant was made possible by the Holly and Beke Burne Fund.

Reality check

We witness many citizens who suffer devastating types of emergencies, from fires to severe medical or rescue calls. However, we also see many of our citizens on routine calls, such as residential flooding or lift assists of elderly patients off the floor. In many cases, we see the need to support the families affected, and we do so through our Charitable Society. We can only do this with generous community donations.

Testimonials

One boot at a time, they have lead our community in raising over $120,000 and counting through five Christmases.” MICHAEL MARKWICK, DUNDARAVE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS

Bistro bringing French fare to West End “It was always a dream of mine to buy it,” he said, while hosting a recent tasting. At six months old, the menu was ready for some tweaking, featuring more rustic dishes for fall. “We want to bring something a little more traditional,” said Blakeley, “Something you don’t see very often.” Now on the menu are Petits Plats — small plates that can be ordered to accompany a glass of wine or cocktail as you decide on your dinner. Just $3.50 each, it’s a tough choice between Pork Rillettes (Dijon Mustard), Baked Mussels (tomato and garlic), Oyster Rockefeller (bacon and Pernod), Crispy Calamari (saffron mayonnaise), Smoked Herring (warm potato salad) and Squash Croquette (goat cheese and apple chutney). The menu is now also home to a rotating selection of what Blakeley calls “The Nasty Bits,” including duck heart tourtiere, tripes à la Provençale, smoked beef tongue, slow braised pigs tail, popcorn chicken livers and Andouillette sausage, all made in house by executive chef Tobias Grignon. They are part of the harvest tradition, pointed out Blakeley, where every part of the animal is used,

Deana Lancaster Contributing Writer

WHEN John Blakeley first arrived in Canada, Café de Paris on Denman Street was a natural spot for the charming Frenchman to work. Since it opened in 1977, the West End bistro had maintained a solid reputation for dependable French fare, and the best steak frites in the city. So when Blakeley — now the proprietor of Bistro Pastis and a North Vancouver resident — took over the restaurant earlier this year, renovated it and renamed it Le Parisien, it felt like coming home.

Put one-third of the wings at a time into a large bowl and pour one-third of the sauce over each batch. With tongs turn the wings to coat them generously with the sauce; transfer to a serving platter. Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing alongside (and a lot of napkins).

Barbecued Chicken Pizza

1 12-inch prebaked pizza crust 1 cup barbecue sauce 3 cups coarsely chopped cooked chicken (buy a rotisserie chicken to make it easy) 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips 1 medium onion, sliced into thin rings 1 Tbsp oil 2 cups shredded mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese, or a mixture ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro ¼ cup sour cream, mixed

with 2 tsp fresh lime juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the onions and red pepper until softened, about three-five minutes. In a medium bowl combine the chopped chicken with half cup of barbecue sauce and stir to coat. Spread half cup of barbecue sauce evenly over the pizza crust. Spoon the chicken mixture evenly over the crust, then distribute the cooked red pepper and onions evenly over that. Sprinkle the cheese evenly on top. Place

pizza directly on oven rack and bake for about 15 minutes or until heated through and cheese is bubbly. Carefully remove from oven (easiest if with tongs you slide the pizza onto a rimless baking sheet). Drizzle sour cream-lime juice mixture over pizza and sprinkle cilantro over top; cut into narrow wedges. Makes about eight-12 servings, depending on size of slices.

FTER that initial frenzy of tearing open presents on Christmas morning and all those bulky boxes are liberated from their red and green cocoons, out comes the garbage bag. It’s a little disheartening to see the Christmas spirit stuffed into a bag and thrown to the curb, but for the environmental-minded among us, there are alternatives. The people at eartheasy.com recommend fabric gift bags. If you have just a little bit of skill with needle and thread and you don’t mind rummaging through the discount bins in fabric shops, making a fabric gift bag should be easy and affordable. You can choose different colours for each person on your list. Canary yellow might be perfect for the ornithologist in your life, and battleship grey works for supporters of the navy and board game enthusiasts alike. Once you’ve picked the fabric, it’s time to raid the linen closet for some old cotton. The website recommends some bedsheet material to be used as lining, and

then you’re ready to start. Cut four equal pieces: two of the fabric and two of the lining. Put the fabric on top of the lining, fold over the top and sew it up. Now make a sandwich with the fabric in the middle and the top at the top. Sew the three un-hemmed edges and turn it all inside out, and you have got yourself a reusable gift bag. But perhaps you’re not so good with a needle and thread, and maybe thrift stores frighten you. Quite possibly you’re reading this and thinking: This article isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. If that’s the case, allow me to politely disagree. Newspaper can be used for wrapping up presents. It’s available, it’s recyclable, and you can pick it up without dropping in on a single chain store. The Sunday comics are great for young kids, and the Help Wanted ads can be ideal for that shiftless relative of yours.

(The North Shore News will not be held responsible for any resentment or hurt feelings that result from following the advice in this article.) A couple of columnist Angela Shellard’s recipes are perfect for someone looking for new ideas in the kitchen; Tim Pawsey’s wine column might be appreciated by anyone who’s ever wandered aimlessly through a liquor store; and columnist Elizabeth James’ work is ideal for the traditional post-Christmas debate about the federal government. But maybe that still seems like too much work. After all, this is the year you’ve bought a life-size porcelain giraffe for the love of your life, and there’s no way you have enough newspaper for that. If that’s the case, a blindfold may be what you’re looking for. Why wrap an entire present when a small piece of fabric ultimately serves the same purpose? It builds trust, creates suspense, and gives your Christmas morning a real pirate ship vibe, especially if you prod your loved ones toward the Christmas tree with a saber and refer to their gifts as ‘plunder.’ You can also use wallpaper samples, last year’s calendar, or even children’s art for wrapping presents.

Get creative with gift wrapping

NATUREBOOKS

For the person on your Christmas list who is fascinated by the natural world, here are a few choices for their reading interests.

The Smartest Animals on the Planet BY DR. SALLY BOYSEN Firefly Books, 192 pages, $24.95

We know animals are intelligent, but just like people there are some that are smarter than others. Sally Boysen examines a broad spectrum of animal species to look for a variety of indicators of intelligence, such as the ability to use tools, communication, imitation and learning, numerical abilities, and self-recognition. Within these categories Boysen provides a fascinating look at the animal world, showing us amazing skills like the dance language of honeybees, how crows make tools, the expressive vocalizations of baboons and much more.

How to Raise Monarch Butterflies BY CAROL PASTERNAK Firefly Books, 48 pages, $8.95

The monarch butterflies are amazing insects. They will travel more than 3,000 miles to reach their wintering grounds, eventually numbering in the millions there. They have a life cycle that varies from several weeks to several months and are certainly the most recognizable butterfly in North America. Carol Pasternak provides an easyto-follow guide for children to participate in the life cycle of these beautiful insects. She shows a step-by-step look at how to collect the eggs or caterpillars and place them in a habitat where they will transform before your eyes into adults.

holiday happenings OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOX CAMPAIGN: The shoebox campaign invites the community to fill a shoebox with small gift items for needy children in other countries. Boxes can include small toys, art/craft items, toiletries, games etc. North Shore Alliance Church at 201 East 23rd St., North Vancouver will serve as a distribution and collection hub for the North Shore for this year’s campaign. Collections will take place until Nov. 25. Info: 604-985-7155, mbasmit@telus.net or samaritanspurse.ca. POINSETTIA SALE: Sentinel Secondary’s Interact Club will hold a sale to raise money for ShelterBox, a disaster relief charity which provides shelter for survivors in need.

Turtles, Tortoises and Terrapins have been around since the Triassic Period, some 200 million years ago. These unusual creatures have survived through the ages but now face their greatest threat as pollution, habitat destruction, over-hunting and climate change dwindle their numbers. Half the turtle species in the world are threatened with extinction. Ronald Orenstein has written this detailed study of these beautiful creatures to help raise awareness of their danger and hopefully enlist more supporters in the fight for their survival. Brilliant colour photographs show the amazing variety and stunning markings of species from around the world. Orenstein provides detailed information on all aspects of turtles and how they live.

COATS FOR KIDS: The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) will hold its 17th annual campaign in support of the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau until Dec. 7.

Create a new family tradition by including a holiday ornament for the young ones each year. By the time they are ready to decorate their own tree, they will have a set of holiday ornaments that each come with a heartwarming story. Think of size. Include up to two large items in the stocking. Have one of the bigger items sticking out of the top and stuff one down to the bottom to make the most of the available space. Squeeze in four to five medium-sized items and fill the gaps with 10 small items to really make an impressively stuffed stocking. Capture a moment. Include a picture of a fun memory like a concert photo, a spontaneous hug or a funny face to spark smiles during unwrapping. Stir up some laughs by tucking in gag gifts, such as fake tattoos for grandma. Start a funny tradition by including a gag gift that gets passed on each year to someone new.

STOCKING STUFFERS PHOTO CANSTOCK

A48 -

Trick your loved ones into thinking they’re getting socks. Stuff favourite items into socks to make family members think they’re getting something boring. They’ll be pleased to find a trinket inside after unwrapping. Use leftover holiday paper to wrap each surprise. Unwrapping gifts is always fun and stockings are jam-packed with small items so feel free to put that leftover wrapping paper to use. Always add something practical. Fill stockings with gift cards, like one to a favourite coffee shop, restaurant or to the movie theatre. Don’t forget items that always come in handy, like a toothbrush, soap and small stationary items. You’ll be the holiday hero when someone runs out of a muchneeded necessity.

Socks make a great hiding place

A family’s traditions I

f your parents gave you $100 to spend on your brother for Christmas what would you get him? Six-year-old Lucas Price answers quickly: “I would buy him Lego City Gold Mine.” But when his eight-year-old brother Oscar announces he doesn’t like Lego City Gold Mine, an investigative journalism instinct kicks in with a follow-up question. NSN: “What do you want for Christmas Lucas?” Lucas: “Lego City Gold Mine.” Interesting. Oscar understands. “He loves Lego,” he explains about his younger brother. Oscar is also a fan of Lego and points to a Lego Christmas tree he built as one of his favourite decorations. “It’s pretty cool. I like how they use helicopter pieces for branches,” he notes. Oscar and Lucas have an impressive variety of Christmas tree decorations spread out across the table as they talk about each one: a mini biplane from Alaska, a felt telephone booth from London, a glass whale from Quebec, and a trolley from San Francisco. Each one is a souvenir from a family trip. Christmas tree decorations are the only souvenirs they are allowed to buy when they travel.

“I remember going to the whale exhibit,” says Oscar, picking up the whale ornament from Quebec. “Where we saw whales?” asks Lucas. He remembers the trip to Quebec too. He was a bit young to remember the family visit to Maine, but holds a small wooden boat ornament from the trip in his hands as he considers it. Both of them loved their trip to California’s Legoland and have a bag of Lego Christmas ornaments as a reminder. Lucas quickly and easily demonstrates taking apart and putting together Lego Santa Clause, explaining each step along the way, even though his older brother tries to tell him it’s not time for a tutorial. Rolling a small, red, familiar

trolley in his hands, Oscar talks about the family’s trip to San Francisco. “There was a big hill,” he starts and continues to describe the winding road they drove down (one of the city’s iconic crooked roads shaped by a series of sharp turns). “That used to be laden with poo from horses,” notes Oscar of the road’s history. Oscar says each year when the decorations come out of their storage boxes in early December he often remembers the places he has travelled with his family. He sometimes likes to talk about the trips to family and friends who visit during the holidays as they admire the ornaments. One decoration the boys particularly like to dig out and put together each year is called Swedish Angel Chimes. Lucas puts the pieces together as he and Oscar explain that the vapour from the candles at the base of the ornament cause two little angels at the top to turn and tap bells as they pass. Lucas blows gently on the ornament to demonstrate and the tiny angels turn, creating a pleasant chime as they touch the bells. Lucas says he likes to blow on the angels to make them turn, but admits that he likes the candles too and has accidentally gotten a little too close to the flames once or twice. Collecting tree ornaments has

become a tradition for the Price family. “It’s kind of like what we do every year. It’s something that we do for all ages. For example if our grandparents do it, we do it then our kids do it. That’s a tradition,” explains Oscar. “It’s just something that represents our family.” “Yeah. Everybody in our family wants to do it,” adds Lucas. And just like many other families across the North Shore, the boys like to leave out treats on Christmas Eve. They leave chocolate cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. Lucas doesn’t think the reindeer ever eat the cookies instead. Oscar agrees. “For the reindeer, carrots are like chocolate cookies. They don’t really eat chocolate chip cookies.” While neither of the boys particularly like mince pies, they do make gingerbread men at home each year and decorate them. However, gingerbread isn’t Oscar’s favourite Christmas dessert. “My favourite Christmas dessert is my invented cookie dough ice cream with cream cheese on it. It is delicious,” he reports. Family ornaments are an important part of the season for the Price brothers, but there are other things they like about Christmas. “My favourite part is that we get two weeks of holidays,” says Lucas. His older brother thinks it might be more like three weeks, and adds: “I like when we have relatives over and opening the presents. That’s fun.” ROSALIND DUANE

TUNE UP AND DRIVE

Newer tune-ups taking on new tasks Rosalind Duane rduane@nsnews.com

IT used to be a common sight: average car owners in their driveways on a weekend afternoon perched under the hood fiddling with the inner workings of their car engine. Times have changed, however, and while some car enthusiasts still tinker with parts, newer vehicles have more electronic systems that make them difficult to fiddle with. New engines have also seen changes with maintenance, and old-school tune-ups have undergone a bit of a makeover. Ryan Elm, manager at Derosa Automotive Services in North Vancouver, explains that tune-ups are moving away from the old-school check-ups, including points and condensers, carburetors, cap and rotor, etc., to spark plugs, filters and carbon build-up. In the old days of carburetors, mechanics would perform throttle body cleanings and take the carburetor off and clean it out. That doesn’t happen any more with fuel injection systems. “There is no getting in there with a toothbrush, so to speak. It’s all pretty much done with chemicals at this point,” says Elm. Instead, tune-ups now

focus on spark plugs and the preventative maintenance of doing emissions services to eliminate carbon. “That keeps everything clean and improves fuel efficiency and emissions,” he says. When considering tune-ups, you need to consider the age of the car, says Elm. The car manufacturer’s maintenance schedule will outline when a tune-up is due, but in general, if the car is experiencing poor fuel efficiency, a stumble or rough running, or if you can’t remember the last time the car’s spark plugs were changed it’s worth asking the question, particularly in cars more than five years old, he notes. “We have some people come in that say they want a tune-up and what they are actually asking for is an oil change and someone to look at their car and tell them it’s OK.” Tune-ups traditionally focused on the ignition or electrical part of the engine components,replacingthoseand checking the engine timing. “With the older cars you do spark plugs, which new cars still have, you do ignition wires, the distributor cap and rotor where the electricity would be distributed through in proper sequence or timing; you would check the timing on the engine to make sure that everything is being distributed when it’s supposed to be, and probably change the fuel filter and an

MECHANIC Charlie Cole, of Derosa Automotive Services, inspects the wear on a spark plug, as part of a newer-style tune-up. engine air filter and that just lets the fuel and air flow and burn properly,” explains Elm.

The newer types of cars now have electrical ignition coils that bring the electricity straight to

the spark plug. “There is no more timing in that sense. It’s all now done with sensors and direct electricity straight from the spark plugs,” says Elm. “So when you do a tune-up on a new car, it’s really just changing the spark plugs and air filter if need be, and maybe a fuel filter, but the in-between of distributing the electricity has kind of gone away. And that’s just extra parts that would wear out and eventually give you a rough running and fuel efficiency problems.” Back in the day, copper was common for spark plugs, but it wouldn’t last long. “With the older style of vehicles, you’re looking at doing spark plugs usually every 45,000 or 50,000 kilometres,” says Elm. That’s because the older copper spark plugs wear out a little bit as they burn the fuel and the gap that the spark jumps to generate the spark and the electricity and burn the fuel slowly gets bigger and bigger as the electrode on the spark plug wears. More recently, cars use platinum spark plugs. Platinum is a much harder metal, it’s more precious so it’s more expensive, but it lasts longer. Depending on the design drivers can get from 100,000 to 160,000 kilometres from a platinum spark plug, says Elm. The newest spark plugs are made from iridium and are supposed to be good for

190,000-200,000 kilometres. “I personally wouldn’t leave a spark plug in a vehicle that long because if you don’t go to touch it until that kind of mileage, the chances of it being seized or stuck in the engine are pretty good and so if you can’t get it out and/or in attempting to get it out 200,000 kilometres later it snaps or breaks, now you’ve got to split that engine in half to deal with it,” says Elm. With newer vehicles the amount of time between tuneups is getting longer, but a newer problem is developing that existed in the past but is now becoming more of an issue: carbon build-up. When the vehicle burns fuel and air it leaves small deposits inside the engine on the intake, the combustion chamber, on the valves, etc. Carbon build-up can affect air and fuel passages so that a car can’t mix fuel and air properly and it will start to run rough. “We’ve seen an engine stop. Flat out not run,” says Elm. There was so much build up that a valve that is usually about two-and-a-half inches wide had shrunk down to the size of a pinky finger and bits of the carbon broke off. The bits went into the engine and stuck some of the valves that open and close for mixing fuel and air so the engine couldn’t run. “Regular servicing with a good shop will lead to the subject of tune-ups coming up,” notes Elm.

Good visibility doesn’t have to be difficult Jeremy Shepherd

jshepherd@nsnews.com

WHEN winter’s grey mist descends on a lonely highway, stifling the dim headlights in the rearview mirror and exacerbating the limited visibility caused by pouring rain, there are a few basic things drivers can do to make sure they get wherever they’re going safely.

“Number one is to have good wiper blades,” says James Daniels, the owner-operator of Scan Automotive, located on Third Street East in North Vancouver. “A lot of people seem to think that their wiper blades are a lot newer than they usually are.” Depending on the severity of weather changes from one season to the next, replacing wiper blades before the mercury dips in December can be a wise idea. “They’ve dried out over the course of a warm summer so the rubber gets hard and doesn’t wipe the window as well as it should,” explains Daniels.

NEWS photo Cindy Goodman

HAVING proper working windshield wipers is important for visibility in the winter. However, if you’re replacing blades a lot, it may be the windshield that needs repair. However, if you’re replacing the wiper blades more often than you used to, the problem may be the windshield itself. “As windshields get older they get pitted. Basically they get sandblasted by sand and rocks and small pebbles getting kicked up off the road and it

puts these little tiny chips in the window and then those eat wiper blades,” says Daniels. Depending on the damage sustained by the windshield, looking for a replacement may be a good idea in the long run. Most car owners are happy to take out a bucket and

and snow you track into a car, the harder it’s going to be for that defog to keep the windows clear.” One of the major mistakes some driver’s make is in trying to splash the frost off their cars, according to Daniels. “I see a lot of customers, they go out and they take a big pail of hot water and throw it on the car to try to melt all the frost and the snow,” says Daniels. “A rapid temperature change, especially if you have frozen water on a piece of glass, can lead to the windows breaking; so good idea not to do that. Never mind that once that hot water cools down and freezes, it turns into a big ice cube.” That temperature change can be a problem for windshield wipers, locks, and door seals, according to Daniels. Cleaning the snow off your car, checking the weather report, and taking your foot off the gas pedal can also help keep you safe this winter.

sponge in July and August, but cleaning the car in November and December can seem like an arduous task. However, wiping down the headlights can keep the road ahead looking brighter, according to Daniels. When stopping for gas, Daniels recommends motorists

take a squeegee to their headlights before heading back on the road. While it’s not a common problem, Daniels also recommends making sure the car’s air conditioning is in good working order. “If you get in and out of the car and you’re wet, you end up with condensation because outside is cold and then you turn on the heater inside and it starts to evaporate all the water in the car and that’ll condense on the inside windows, so air conditioning is really critical to have functioning especially in a really, really wet climate like ours. That will make a big difference in keeping the windows defogged,” he says. Stamping off the snow before climbing in the car can also play a part in keeping the windows clear, according to Daniels. “Obviously if you get in the car with a lot of snow on you, that takes a lot of time to evaporate, so the more water

CLARK Lawson, owner of First Street Garage in North Vancouver, looks for a coolant leak in a customer’s car. He recommends regular maintenance.

Knowing when to sink more money into an old car and when to throw in the towel and purchase or lease a new car can be difficult. Clark Lawson, owner of First Street Garage in North Vancouver, says it comes down to a simple question: “Is it taking all your vacation money?” “First of all, the vehicle has to be safe. So if it starts to have rust holes in the body or the frame or major components then that’s obviously a huge issue right there and you should be moving on,” he adds. Lawson says if you’re spending all your money on repairs where parts are failing and not just scheduled maintenance, it may be time to upgrade. But repairs can also be things like brakes, batteries and tires and these are wear-and-tear items, he adds.

EXPERIENCE MATTERS WHEN SERVICING YOUR VEHICLE

He suggests keeping a file with records of all your vehicle’s repair, maintenance and other costs and looking at that file once a year to see how much money you spent on your vehicle, and how much it averages over a month. Also important to note is how much of that money is spent on maintenance, how much is spent on wear-and-tear items and how much is spent on broken-down repairs, where something has failed on the vehicle. A good ballpark budget is $1,500 for repairs and maintenance each year, says Lawson. “Maintenance costs usually on a good vehicle will exceed the repairs,” he notes. However, the decision about whether or not to keep an older vehicle can also depend on the overall condition of the vehicle and how long you expect to keep it. For example, if a vehicle is worth $3,000, and a family has to spend $1,500 now to keep it on the road for the next two or three years, it may or may not be worth it. “If it suits their needs and it’s been fairly cheap to

maintain, that’s a pretty good investment to keep it going for another two or three years. If you spend the $1,500 but you suspect that two months later something else is going to go for the same amount of money and so on and so on, or the last year you’ve been spending that kind of money then I wouldn’t invest that,” says Lawson. In some cases, certain issues may be the beginning of a cascade of repairs based on the mileage and the quality of the vehicle. If items start failing that are not normal items to fail, such as steering suspension components that typically are supposed to last for close to the longevity of the vehicle or vehicle electronics, it may be time to look at other options. Mileage itself, however, is not necessarily an indication of how long a car will last. The quality of newer cars is quite high these days and they are reaching higher mileage. “You may find the engine gets a little bit tired, maybe it uses a bit more oil, but if properly maintained vehicles can keep going for a long time now,” explains Lawson. Having to use a lot of oil

and seeing billowing blue smoke from the tailpipe are signs that the car might be too old, though. More important than the mileage these days is the car’s maintenance, suggests Lawson. “Maintenance has proven over the years that it saves costs in repair,” he says. “In other words, if you don’t service the transmission properly and change the filter and change the fluid on a regular basis you will drastically reduce the lifespan of that transmission.” Engine coolant is also an important element to consider. There are different types now and all have different intervals for when they should be changed. “If you don’t change them they get very corrosive and cause all sorts of damage to other components like the radiator, water pump, hoses, and all these things get deteriorated if the coolant is left too long in the vehicle,” explains Lawson. “A vehicle that has been properly maintained generally is going to give you a lot less costs and more time on the road.”

Recording stars show off their cars

■ Rockin’ Garages, by Tom Cotter and Ken Gross, Motorbooks, 192 pages, $39.

Terry Peters tpeters@nsnews.com

THE pairing of fast cars and rock music was established as surely as if rock and roll was a baby delivered in the back of an ambulance racing to the hospital. Speed, power, hard lines and smooth surfaces all blend together and nowhere brings that union into better focus than in the garage of a rock star. Tom Cotter and Ken Gross have paid house calls to some rock legends that are also car enthusiasts. They show us the gleaming treasures that rest behind the garage doors. We get to see Sammy Hagar’s Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona, along with his Aston Martin Vanquish

S and a Ford GT parked alongside a pair of Mustangs. Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason loves a different era of speed and has a collection of vintage racecars. Many of these cars Mason has raced on the track, but it’s his Ferrari 250 GTO that he holds dearest. This car is one he has not only frequently raced but also used to drive both his daughters to their weddings. The unique 20th Century Cycles is a non-business, nonmuseum in Oyster Bay, New York, that Billy Joel owns. “I don’t sell anything, so it’s not a business, and I ride all my bikes, so it’s not a museum” says Joel. He put his collection on public display as a move to support the local businesses of his adopted hometown. Keith Urban shares his love of big cruising automobiles like his “ultimate driving couch,” a rare 1956 Lincoln Mk II.

It’s time to slow down THE number of speed-related crashes significantly increases during the fall and winter months.

Throughout October and November, ICBC is encouraging drivers to slow down and prepare for the challenges of wet, icy and snowy roads. ICBC offers the following tips for preparing for a trip in winter weather: ■ Get prepared. Check the weather before you head out for the day. If you’re planning a trip to an area you’re not familiar with, like a ski hill, check the road conditions for your entire route so you can prepare for the weather you may encounter. ■ Slow down. Posted speed limits are for ideal conditions only. Rushing is risky at any time of year, but it takes more time and distance to come to a complete stop on wet, snowy or icy roads.

NEWS photo Mike Wakefield

Slow down and increase your following distance to at least four seconds. ■ Be realistic. Driving is a complex task, especially in poor conditions. Allow extra travel time in wet, icy or snowy weather so you aren’t tempted to rush. There are many excuses for being late, but no excuses for speeding. If you are running behind,

don’t panic. ■ Prepare your vehicle. Make sure that your tires are rated for the conditions (PDF) you’re driving in, the tread isn’t badly worn and they’re inflated at the correct pressure. Pressure drops in cold weather and over-inflated tires can reduce gripping. Check that you have sufficient windshield wiper fluid and your wipers are in good condition for wet or snowy weather. ■ Leave the car at home. When heavy winter conditions arrive, consider alternatives for getting to work so you get there safely, whether it’s taking transit, carpooling with a friend who’s a confident winter driver, working from home or adjusting your hours of work. For more information, including shareable late excuses and tips to help you avoid rushing, visit the ICBC Speed Awareness Campaign website.

Blues learning on the fly

Royals ride hot streak to soccer provincials

Only one Cap player has major Pacwest experience

Andy Prest aprest@nsnews.com

THE Handsworth senior boys soccer team may have taken the back door into the provincial championships — the tournament begins tomorrow in Burnaby — but as far as the Royals are concerned there’s nothing wrong with going in with a low profile.

Andy Prest aprest@nsnews.com

THE Capilano University men’s basketball team has exactly one player who has played significant minutes of postsecondary hoops prior to this season.

NORTH SHORE SCORES FIELD HOCKEY Nov. 16 AAA provincial final Cowichan - 0 Handsworth - 4 Check out the North Shore News on Sunday, Nov. 25 for a full report FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS Nov. 16 AAA quarterfinals West Van - 20 W.J. Mouat - 55 Nov. 17 AA quarterfinals Windsor - 7 Mission - 21

Keen observers at the team’s home game against the Camosun Chargers Friday night may have picked him out in the first few seconds. He was the one who found a little open space on a breakout and threw down an emphatic two-handed dunk to give the Blues a 2-0 lead. It was secondyear guard Wes Dekleer who got things started with a bang but he and the Blues quieted down for the rest of the first half and came into the break trailing 41-39. As the third quarter got underway, however, Dekleer showed just what he can do for the Blues. The Argyle grad took over the game, starting things off with a coast-to-coast layup followed by a variety of strong cuts and drives with a few long bombs thrown in. Dekleer racked up 15 points in the 10-minute quarter and by the time the barrage was over NEWS photo Paul McGrath the Blues were leading 59-53 and on their way to a win. CAPILANO’S John Leong drives to the hoop in a Pacwest game Friday against “They just couldn’t match the Camosun Chargers. The young Blues won 86-80 and now sit at 2-3 in regular up with him,” Capilano head season play. Visit the Photo Galleries section at nsnews.com for more images. coach Dwayne Selby said about Camosun’s attempts to slow down his ultra-athletic six-foot-five to the rim and he can also hit the outside shot so it creates such a wing player. “He was too fast for their forwards and too big for matchup problem.” The Blues beat the Chargers 86-80 Friday night to score their their guards. I think he did a great job of leading us and being second regular season win of the season and while the lone veteran aggressive — he just wouldn’t be denied. It was great to see.” If the young Blues are going to do much in the Pacwest league led the way, Selby was impressed with the rest of his untested this season they’ll likely need a lot of repeat performances from crew as well. Five of the Blues are college rookies while the rest have played on Pacwest teams in the past but without playing Dekleer. “Wes is a big, big part of our team,” said Selby. “He gives us big minutes. so much, it’s hard for me to take him off the floor. He does such a good job of rebounding at the three position, he’s great at getting See Blues page 62

“I think we’ve got a good chance,” said head coach Cosmo Valente. “Are we the underdog? Probably, but I like that. I like being low on the radar.” The Royals finished second in the North Shore AAA league behind West Vancouver, losing both their regular season matchups against the Highlanders. That put Handsworth on the long road through the playoffs, facing three must-win games. What followed were three one-goal victories that put Handsworth into provincials the hard way. First up was Argyle with the Royals grinding out a 2-1 win. Next came Burnaby’s Byrne Creek and a 0-0 tie that the Royals solved in a shootout. Finally, the rematch — Handsworth versus West Van for the district’s last provincial berth. After falling to the Highlanders twice before, the Royals were happy to flip the score line when it mattered most, claiming a 1-0 win to earn a spot in the big show. “Sweet redemption — that’s what I call it,” said Valente. “Another heated, tough game. I thought we were the better team at the end of the day. I mean no See WV page 62

WV settles for North Shore title

From page 60

disrespect to them, they’re a great team, they don’t quit till the end. I think second half we didn’t give them much and it was a good 1-0 victory for us.” Now that the Royals are heading to provincials, their tough playoff test has turned into a blessing — after their two earlyseason stumbles they’re now riding a six-game win streak. “We haven’t changed anything from Day 1, we’ve stuck to our formation, stuck to our tactics,” said Valente. The Royals, loaded with Grade 12 talent, will have their hands full in their first game when they take on the defending champions from Charles Best secondary Thursday at 11 a.m. at Burnaby Lake West Sports Complex. Their other round robin matchups are against Quesnel’s Correlieu secondary Thursday at 2:45 p.m. and Kitsilano secondary Friday at 9 a.m. “If we’re going to advance anywhere in this tournament we’ve got to win the first game, no question,” said Valente. “We feel good, the boys are confident . . . (but) there’s not going to be any easy games. When you get to this level of the tournament obviously every team has proved themselves to get to the final 16.”

The Highlanders, meanwhile, are ruing their missed opportunities. After a stellar regular season West Van had two shots to score one playoff win to get to provincials but fell short in both. Missing their top goal scorer due to injury, their offence sputtered as they lost to Burnaby South in a shootout following a 0-0 tie before losing 1-0 to the Royals. “They’re gutted, absolutely devastated. They knew the ultimate goal was to get to provincials,” West Van head coach Stew Baker said about his players following the loss to Handsworth. The Highlanders did get to end their season on a high note, knocking off St. Thomas Aquinas 2-1 Nov. 13 to claim the North Shore Trophy Championship in a battle between the regular season AA and AAA league winners. “Unfortunately we didn’t qualify for provincials but through that disappointment we were able to finish the season on a good note,” said Baker. This was West Van’s first North Shore title since 1998, a happy ending to a bittersweet season for the Highlanders. “To me it’s mind-boggling that we’ve won the league, we’ve won the championship but we’re not going to provincials,” said Baker. “It’s just the nature of the game, I guess.”

Carrier ofof the the Month July November

Allison delivers the North Shore News three times a week and has been a great addition to our team of carriers since June, 2012. The residents on Allison’s route are very pleased with their service and happy to have such a great carrier and we at the North Shore News count ourselves lucky to have such a committed member on our team!

Congratulations Allison and thank you for all your hard work!

“It was a quality win for us, a win we needed to have, and I’m just really proud of the guys for playing as a unit and never giving up,” he said, adding that he was impressed with how his team cranked up their defence and rebounding in the second half. “We know as a team our bread and butter is our defence and our rebounding. I just challenged them to take that upon themselves. If you’re guarding your man you’ve got to take that on as a challenge, a one-on-one challenge, that he is not going to get to the paint, he is not going to shoot an open jump shot. I think our guys did a good job of rising to that challenge.” Dekleer finished with 21 points and six rebounds and was joined on top of the scoring list by Douglas College transfer Sam Zhang whose 25-point performance included a scorching eight minute stretch in the second quarter in which he scored 14 to single-handedly keep the Blues in the game.

“Sam does a little bit of everything,” Selby said about Zhang, who missed a week of practice after suffering a concussion but made it back into the lineup for the Camosun game. “He was ready to go tonight.” Other young players Selby expects to lead the team right away are starting point guard John Leong who led the team with five assists against Camosun — last season Leong backed up superstar James Lum who now suits up for Simon Fraser — and forward Daniel Dubois who so far leads the team in rebounding after grabbing 12 boards against the Chargers. With the team’s collective lack of experience, however, it’ll be a bit of a bumpy ride. One day after the Camosun win the Blues hosted Vancouver Island University and were whipped 81-52 to drop to 2-3 on the season. “I think we’re about a month away from us really showing and being the team that we can be,” Selby said, adding that he can see new growth and development every time the Blues hit the floor. “I’m

excited about the team we have.” In keeping with the youth theme, Selby, who turns 32 on Friday, is also a rookie. He’s the founder of the AllBall Academy basketball club but he’s never been a head coach at this level. “It’s been fabulous,” he said about his new gig. “The Pacwest is one of the best leagues in the country, we’ve got some great coaches in this league, so preparing and trying to figure out how to out-strategize the other coaches in this league is something that I relish and I look forward to.” The Blues aren’t gunning for top spot in the league just yet but Selby is counting on his team making the playoffs and taking their best shot. “Once you get to the playoffs you can win two games, play your best, and you’re going to the show,” he said. This Friday is the last chance to see the Blues at home before the holiday break. Capilano hosts Quest with the women playing at 6 p.m. and the men to follow at 8 p.m.

SPRAY, Jean Annie Oct 08, 1927 - Nov 05, 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jean Spray on November 5, 2012. She was predeceased by her cherished husband, Edward Spray and beloved daughter Debora. Jean will be dearly missed by her loving and devoted son Grant Spray, his wife Cathy, her son-in-law Shawn Martin, her grandchildren, Jacqueline, Garrett, Damian and Mikayla and her great granddaughter Hadley. Mom grew up in upper Lonsdale, North Vancouver, and spent many years raising her family in Edgemont Village and West Vancouver. She and Dad enjoyed much of their retirement at their cabin on Deka Lake in the Cariboo, which became a joyful family gathering place for many years. Mom was a kind, caring and wonderful wife, mother and Nanna, and will always be in our hearts. She touched many lives with her kindness and we are all better people for knowing her. We would like to thank all of the staff at the Kamloops Seniors Village for their great care and love. We miss you Mom, Nanna. There will be no service by request.

Born in Munich, Germany 1966. Passed away Nov.16, 2012. Christiane taught at Argyle Secondary School and felt at home living on the North Shore due to her love of nature and animals. The loss of Christiane is like losing pieces of ourselves, necessary pieces. She was utterly unique, beautiful, kind and her own person. She will always be in our hearts and our imagination. Survived by family: Jochen, Josi, Katerina, Aurelia & Micki (Adam) well as other family and friends. A Memorial Service will be held Fri. Nov. 23, 2012 at 10:00am at the Boal Chapel of First Memorial, 1505 Lillooet Road, N. Van. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to VOKRA www.orphankittenrescue.com
