That’s according to information released by B.C.’s vital statistics agency in its annual report, that provided tidbits about how many of us were born, how old we were when we married or had children and how and where we shufﬂed off this mortal coil in 2011. On a typical day in British Columbia last year, 121 people were born — slightly more than half of them boys, and almost a quarter to mothers 35 and older — 60 marriages were performed (most of them civil ceremonies) and 87 people died. Statistics for the North Shore reﬂected many of those across the province. In general, we’re doing everything later in life than we did a generation See Birth page 5
Road rage bat wielder avoids jail Jane Seyd email@example.com
A mini van driver who beat a stranger with a metal baseball bat in a case of road rage has been handed a six-month conditional jail sentence — to be served at home — and ordered to take a defensive driving course.
Judge Doug Moss handed the sentence to Gerardo Arguello, 38, Dec. 20 in North Vancouver provincial court for the brutal beating of Ryan McCaffery, which took place by the side of the road on
Conditional sentence for assault with aluminum baseball bat
North Vancouver’s “Cut” on New Year’s Day 2011. “We have a problem in our society with what they call road rage,” said Moss in handing down his sentence. “It seems to take place all too often.” Moss told Arguello that attacking McCaffery with a bat was “totally out of proportion to the circumstances that faced you. “You did it in front of your own children,” the judge added.
“That’s reprehensible to me.” Moss sentenced Arguello after ﬁnding him guilty in September of assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm. Moss found a second man, 35-year-old Norman Segundo, who was a passenger in Arguello’s mini van, not guilty of assault in the case. During the trial, McCaffery described how the incident started after he cut off Arguello’s minivan in the process of merging onto the Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Crossing, heading into North Vancouver on the afternoon of Jan. 1, 2011.

Victim loses job because of hand, arm injuries From page 1 mountains with Arguello’s family to go snowboarding — became enraged at being cut off. While on the bridge, Arguello pulled his vehicle alongside McCaffery’s, where all three men yelled at each other through their windows. Arguello then began a “cat and mouse” game with McCaffery as the two mini vans drove up the “Cut” in North Vancouver. Arguello cut across two lanes of trafﬁc, overtaking McCaffery then slamming on his brakes to cause a collision. After the crash, McCaffery described Segundo coming at him on the side of the road “with rage in his eyes.” Arguello then grabbed a bat from his vehicle and started hitting McCaffery with it. McCaffery was hit four or ﬁve times with the bat, including once in the head. In court, McCaffery read an emotional victim impact statement describing how the attack has left him with permanent physical and psychological injuries. McCaffery told the judge he lost his job as a tow truck driver because of the injuries to his arm and hand. The attack has left his family ﬁnancially devastated, because of his inability to work, said McCaffery. McCaffery said he still suffers from “constant and sometimes unbearable headaches” He said he has also become depressed and suffers from post traumatic stress disorder, which has affected his relationship with his three young children. “They’ve had to learn to walk on eggshells,” he told the judge. “I want to be the contented father I was.” Before being sentenced, Arguello took the stand to offer a tearful apology to McCaffery, saying he was “so sorry” for his actions. “I wish I could take it back,” he said, looking at McCaffery in the courtroom. “It breaks my heart that your children and wife are suffering. I hope you can ﬁnd it in your heart to forgive me.” Arguello added, “The person you met that day is not the person I normally am.” In handing down his sentence, Moss told Arguello most incidents of road rage are committed by “otherwise normal citizens. . . . People like you.” Moss ordered Arguello to obey a curfew that will require him to stay in his house from 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. for the ﬁrst three months of his sentence. He also put Arguello on a year’s probation, with orders to take the driving course and counselling. Arguello’s lawyer noted he has already voluntarily completed an anger management course. McCaffery is suing Arguello in civil court. Arguello’s lawyer said that could potentially result in damages of more than $250,000.
Birth rate continues decline
From page 1
ago — including marrying, having children and dying. Marriage rates in B.C. have been falling since the 1970s. On the North Shore, 381 couples in North Vancouver and 266 couples in West Vancouver decided to buck that trend and tie the knot in 2011. Both men and women are taking their time to think before they leap into a life of wedded bliss though. The average age for ﬁrst marriages across the province has continued to steadily rise — to 29 for women and 31 for men. The next statistically measurable milestone — having children — is also coming later in life than it used to, according to the statistics report. While the majority of babies province-wide are still born to women aged 20 to 34, the percentage of older women giving birth has risen dramatically — to about 23 per cent of the total. On the North Shore, that statistic is even more marked — with older mothers accounting for between 40 and 45 per cent of all women having babies. In general, older mothers tend to have babies with lower birth weights and are more likely to give birth by Caesarean section. The C-section rate for women having babies on the North Shore hovered between 32 and 34 per cent — slightly higher than the provincial average. A total of 1,451 babies were born to women from North and West Vancouver last year. Local birth rates in both communities were below the provincial average, which itself has steadily declined since the 1950s. At the same time, the percentage of multiple births has doubled in the past 30 years. Across the province, births were spread fairly evenly throughout the year, with more in the months of July and September. Kindergarten teachers working in schools ﬁve years from now are likely to have a few Liams, Ethans, Emmas and Olivias in their classrooms — those were ranked the top names for babies in 2011. Other popular names included Mason, Lucas and Benjamin for boys and Sophia, Ava and Chloe for girls.
At the other end of the life cycle tracked by government statistics, North Shore residents live a year or two longer than the provincial average. Life expectancy for men on the North Shore is 82 compared to 80 province-wide and 85.5 for women, compared to 84 provincially. There were 1,195 deaths on the North Shore last year. Province-wide, cancer, heart disease and strokes/blood clots remained the leading causes of death, accounting for more than half of all deaths in B.C. Lung, colorectal, breast and prostate cancer account for the most cancer deaths. People dying of cancer are generally older than they used to be, according to the statistics report, and more of them are women. Among young people 15-24, accidents — including car accidents and accidental poisonings — remained the leading cause of death in B.C., with suicide the second leading cause. The report also pointed to a number of deaths that were considered preventable including two deaths on the North Shore last year from causes considered medically treatable. A further 37 deaths in North Vancouver and 18 in West Vancouver last year were alcohol-related while nine deaths on the North Shore were drug-induced.

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.
Zero sum F
OR the third year in a row, West Vancouver has chosen not to raise municipal tax bills by even one per cent, touting the move as prudent ﬁscal management. While this effort to keep increases below the rate of inﬂation is admirable, residents should be aware that such budgetary straitjacketing comes at a cost. Even as the municipality continues to tighten its revenue stream, it is forced to allow salaries and other costs to climb. West Vancouver’s CAO, for example, saw his pay rise by ﬁve per cent between 2010 and 2011. In March, councillors voted themselves an (overdue) 37 per cent raise. Meanwhile, the price of other necessary supplies from fuel to pipes to tools has been ticking upwards as well. West Vancouver’s departments are caught between these trends, forced to
make signiﬁcant sacriﬁces to meet the arbitrary zero-per-cent target set by council. That’s going to have impacts — some of them detrimental. In November 2011, the municipality inadvertently cut down a dozen oldgrowth trees near Eagle Lake, some of them as old as 700 years. This happened months after it phased out its community forester and while the role of environmental co-ordinator was vacant — possibly for ﬁnancial reasons. One wonders if, in the absence of such cost-cutting measures, those trees would still be standing. Where else are corners being cut? Allowing revenue at least to keep pace with population growth and inﬂation is not irresponsible management, nor is it onerous for ratepayers. The only downside is political, and that should not factor into the equation.
Harvest Project thanks community
Dear Editor: From Harvest Project to the entire North Shore community: Thank you for your caring, your creativity and your generosity throughout 2012. Hundreds of individuals and families on the North Shore are being restored to fuller participation in the community because of your support for our work to “extend a hand up, not a hand out” to those experiencing serious crises in their lives. In a recent fundraising letter, we highlighted the story of “Brenda,” a current Harvest Project client — a single parent who is bravely working to rebuild her life and sustain her family. We could share the stories of so many of our neighbours who are beneﬁting from the
compassion and assistance that we are able to bring, thanks to the support we receive from individuals, families, schools, businesses, churches, community organizations and local governments on the North Shore. Each month, Harvest Project protects more than 500 individuals and families from slipping into despair, as we come alongside them with one-to-one coaching, a grocery supply and clothing support. Harvest Project is thankful for many partnerships, as we work with those in North and West Vancouver who are struggling and marginalized, though they live, work and go to school beside us. Special thanks to students from preschools, public and private elementary and secondary schools and
Capilano University who stepped up — sharing ideas and donations. Huge thanks to the North Shore News, a founding sponsor of Harvest Project, for another year of See Volunteers page 7
Niqab ruling compromises justice Dear Editor: Just a quick note in reaction to your Dec. 26 Viewpoint, Unveiling Justice. While I appreciate the Supreme Court of Canada’s sensitivity to any citizen’s religious practices, I strongly disagree that it should be allowed to compromise the Canadian system of justice, and in my opinion that is exactly what it does on two points: 1. The niqab (face veil) in hiding the face also hides the identity of the party who is supposed to be under oath on the stand. This dramatically compromises the ability for the court to determine the party’s true identity. 2. In any communication between two
parties we rely not only on the spoken word but also on their body language (facial expression, etc.) to assist in determining whether the party in question is telling the truth or not. This also would be dramatically compromised by the wearing of the niqab. I do not believe if we went to another country and were testifying in their court system that we would be afforded the same ability to hide our identity and our visual responses in this way, regardless of how strongly we held our religious convictions. I believe Canada should be protecting the majority of Canadian citizens ﬁrst. John A. Myers, North Vancouver
Netherlands SeaBus is cross-border shopping Dear Editor: Regarding your Dec. 28 story, Union Condemns SeaBus Contract: There’s clearly a double standard at work here. Thousands of Metro Vancouver residents do their shopping in the United States every day to save money. At the same time, many of those same people condemn TransLink for ordering a SeaBus from the Netherlands to save money. It seems to me these are one and the same. In both cases, buying products and services in foreign countries costs jobs and tax revenue in Canada. Will the Canadian Auto Workers and NDP candidate Craig Keating come out against cross-border shopping, just as they have TransLink’s decision to buy a new
SeaBus elsewhere? Would we want other countries to block our companies from bidding on goods and services? Because that’s the natural response to those kind of restrictions. The other thing about the SeaBus decision that bothers me is how a company thousands of kilometres away in a “ﬁrst world” country that enjoys labour, tax and environmental standards and costs at least as high as Canada’s can provide a new SeaBus at less cost than a company sitting right on the SeaBus route. It seems to me the local builder and its employees ought to be looking in the mirror, and not at TransLink. David A. Rodger North Vancouver

Community Charter must be improved
“In situations where a conﬂict exists, or there is a perception of a conﬂict, it is not sufﬁcient to merely live up to one’s obligations; it is necessary to do so in a timely, open, forthright, constructive and accountable manner.” UBC board of governors, Policy 97, as revised Feb. 2, 2012
WE can only wonder what persuades people to stand for election — to any level of government. While many of them seem to forget their promises the day after being elected, others receive brickbats for being determined to stay the course. Time-consuming and challenging though they are, the duties of a councillor are not considered a full-time job; so incumbents often need to work at another job to maintain their income and/or career. Such is the case for City of North Vancouver Coun. Rod Clark, who works for Whitewater Concrete, a sub-trade company at an Onni Group development in Richmond. An experienced politician, Clark sought a legal opinion in May 2012 to see whether his “day job” put him in a conﬂict of interest should he participate in council discussion about Onni’s proposal for the Safeway site at 13th and Lonsdale.
Elizabeth James He was assured there was no conﬂict. Clark’s caution was a wise move and had he gone further to air that opinion on a subsequent council agenda, the innuendos that surfaced last month might have been scotched at source. They also could have been scotched had Mayor Darrell Mussatto taken ﬁve minutes to quietly conﬁrm Clark’s status — as most personnel matters are handled. Instead, by telling reporters and talk-show listeners that conﬂict issues are for the individual to settle, Mussatto allowed the rumours to dangle unresolved in the minds of the media and the community. Meanwhile, Coun. Pam Bookham, aware that 2,000 or so residents had signed petitions protesting density and increased trafﬁc should the Onni proposal go ahead, believed they had not had a chance to voice those concerns
at the marathon public hearing Dec. 19. Accordingly, she voted with Clark and Couns. Guy Heywood and Don Bell to hold a second public hearing this month or, as now seems more likely, in February. Not only was she within her rights to do so, some might argue it was her responsibility to guarantee those voices were heard. Yet for that, she not only suffered well-advertised retaliation from the developer, she and Clark have also suffered brickbats from some of their colleagues. No matter which side of the development you’re on, that behaviour is inappropriate. Some years ago, the question of a possible conﬂict of interest was raised in the District of North Vancouver, shortly before that council approved the Lynn Valley library and town centre project. It arose because Coun. Alan Nixon was the broker of a realty ﬁrm whose commercial arm was the leasing agent for the space adjacent to the new library. Nixon sought a legal opinion, following which he notiﬁed an open meeting of council he had been advised he was not in conﬂict and that he had no pecuniary interest at stake should council approve the project. Nevertheless, because there was a possibility that “perception of conﬂict” might
arise in the minds of the community, Nixon recused himself from the discussion and the vote. Not so when, in April 2007, seven Lower Mainland mayors — including Mussatto and District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton — travelled to China on a trip paid for by Li Zhe, president of the Canada-China Business Association and owner of LVC Investments Inc. As Frances Bula reported in the Vancouver Sun on May 4, 2007, they took the trip — accompanied by, among others, a representative of the Onni Group — because “they believed . . . it was being paid for by someone who was never going to do business in their municipalities. . . .” Of course, “never” is a long time in the lives of investment companies and developers, so the mayors would have been wiser to stay home or ask their councils to approve the expenditures as a trade mission. For more reasons than those raised in this story, the 10-year old Community Charter is overdue for a reﬁt. Clauses covering public hearings should establish mandatory rules for fair process
regarding speakers’ sign-up sheets and require alternating pro-con presentations. Hearings should adjourn at 10:30 p.m. and resume later if necessary. Conﬂict of interest clauses need to be clariﬁed and strengthened. The legislation requires mayors to read a preamble to public hearings which explains the code of conduct for speakers and the audience. The Charter should apply those rules to members of council who are interviewed about community opinions and their own colleagues’ positions. Members of council — and

developers — need to know there is nothing NIMBY or “generational” at play when people demand an ethical, open and transparent process on issues that affect them. When councils and developers respect the ofﬁcial community plans the community has spent time and money to establish, residents rarely put them through the type of wringer the city barely survived as 2012 wound down to its bitter end. Let us hope the Christmas break allowed them some time for sober second thought about their unacceptable behaviour. firstname.lastname@example.org

Cold weather adds to shelter’s workload North Van’s homeless shelter has run above capacity since the day it opened Annie Ellison email@example.com
THE 20-man emergency dorm in the basement of North Vancouver’s Lookout Emergency Aid Society shelter was originally intended to be an activity room, not part of the sleeping arrangements.

DAVID Newberry and Linda Fox work in the clothing sorting and storage room of the Lookout shelter in North Vancouver. The shelter is always in need of warm clothing, toiletries and blankets.
Winter is here and all forecasts predict more snow than normal. So now would be a good time to come in and take advantage of our full inventory, and a great sale on existing stock. Visit our service centre today and leave prepared for the winter ahead.
Initially, organizers believed that 25 emergency beds would be enough to meet the needs of homeless people on the North Shore, but the additional space has been occupied since its completion, says community liaison worker David Newberry. Year round, the shelter runs at 105 per cent of its capacity and is forced to turn people away every day, says Newberry. The 45 emergency beds at Lookout are available 24/7 in addition to 25 bachelor suites reserved for two-year transitional housing. However, during cold snaps, the centre rolls out 20 additional mats in the dining area for people to simply come in from the cold and stay warm and dry. North Vancouver issued this season’s ﬁrst emergency weather alert on Dec. 7. “We just say ‘it’s freezing, get in here,’” says Newberry. Standard barriers such as intake and entrance interviews are overlooked, although the cleaning and laundry protocol is still in place.
“We just want people to come in,” says Newberry. Likeothercharitableorganizations, the Lookout does 90 per cent of its annual fundraising during the holiday season and is putting out a call for donations of all makes and models. BCHousingfundsminimumcosts, but the shelter relies on donations to provide all other services, including care packages. “Someone who lives here needs the same stuff as the rest of us do,” says Newberry. There is currently an urgent need for warm clothing, but also for chronically overlooked items such as toiletries, underwear, shaving kits. Bus tickets are in particularly high demand because 25 per cent of shelter guests are currently employed. “They need to get to work,” says Newberry. The three municipalities from Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay are among the most prosperous in Canada, but there are pockets of astounding poverty. “It can be a challenge to convince people on the North Shore that poverty exists here,” says Newberry. Another overlooked reality is that the majority of people who use the Lookout’s services are North Shore born and raised, says Newberry. All contributions are welcome at 705 West Second St., North Vancouver. By donating, you could be helping out a former classmate, colleague, student, teammate or friend.

Criminal charges follow BCSC fraud ﬁne
West Van man lied to investors: commission
taking $523,100 from investors, according to spokesperson Richard Gilhooley. A three-member B.C. Securities Commission panel unanimously served Keller with a lifetime market ban in B.C., an order to pay back the $523,100 he stole and a ﬁne of $1.6 million dollars. “He’s got just about as serious a penalty as we offer,” said Gilhooley. Keller claimed he would execute foreign exchange deals through his company Great White Capital Corporation. He lied to investors about his background and how investments were performing, prepared false account statements and used the funds for personal use, said Gilhooley. Under B.C. Securities Commission sanctions, Keller cannot promote, buy or sell securities, start a company, own property or sit as an ofﬁcer or

THE Crown has laid criminal fraud charges against a man who allegedly operated a fraudulent investment scam out of West Vancouver.
Provincial Crown prosecutors have charged 23-year-old Adam Keller with nine counts of fraud, according to Sgt. Duncan Pound, federal policing media relations spokesman. Keller has also been sanctioned by the B.C. Securities Commission for fraudulently
director for a corporation. He has also been entered into a national ceasetrade database that encourages other jurisdictions to reciprocate these orders. One of his victims, a West Vancouver resident, lost hundreds of thousands of dollars. According to Gilhooley, there is no evidence that investors will recover their assets. Keller’s operation was a straight investment fraud, according to Gilhooley, in which the scammer solicits money from investors (generally for something that brings in absurdly high returns) but there is no underlying asset. The money from new investors is used to pay existing investors with massive, even ridiculous returns. “The fuel is the new investors,” said Gilhooley. To outsiders, Keller’s operation checked out,
complete with a website, promotional packages and a home ofﬁce in West Vancouver for Great White. Keller prepared false account statements that induced investors to invest more, said Gilhooley. In these situations, it is common for fraudsters to take their investors’ money and spend it very quickly “on some kind of lifestyle they think they deserve” in order to maintain a successful appearance, said Gilhooley. “The burn rate with some of these frauds is unbelievable,” he said. Keller rented an opulent brick mansion at 888 Sentinel Drive in West Vancouver for $16,000 dollars per month. He wore designer clothing and drove a conspicuously expensive car. Keller is no longer in Canada and his last property rental was in Colorado, according to RCMP spokesman Pound.
Hamburger rage issue settled AN assault charge has been dropped against a B.C. Crown prosecutor who got into a shoving match with an elderly man in a North Vancouver McDonald’s.
“There was some pushing and shoving that followed that. No blows were struck.” Pechet added it’s not necessary to actually hit someone to be charged with assault. “Just the simple knocking off of the hat, fell under the deﬁnition of assault itself.” Pechet said Johns was shocked and horriﬁed when he later found out how old Draganic was. “He was very embarrassed.” The charge was dropped after Johns went through an alternative measures program that included an anger management course, an apology letter and 10 hours of community service work. Pechet said there appeared to be no particular issue that sparked the incident.“It could have been a bad day. Who knows?” he said. Pechet said Johns also faced discipline at his job after he was charged. — Jane Seyd
Hedley Christopher Johns, 60, who works for the criminal justice branch, was charged last year, after a chippy exchange with Brad Draganic — a man in his 80s — in the North Vancouver fast food restaurant. The incident, which happened in August 2011, was apparently triggered when Johns barged through the door of the restaurant as Draganic was walking out. Draganic said something to Johns, “who then turned around and walked towards him and knocked his hat off,” said Kris Pechet, a special prosecutor assigned to the case.

Garden trends for 2013 HOME IDEAS Barb Lunter shares tips on selecting wood for the ﬁre during the long, cold winter months. page 13
Todd Major NEW Year, new garden? Maybe not. Not everything that is new is good, especially when it comes to gardening. I would never trade my big old golden
Japanese cedar for some newly released tree. When is comes to plants, maturity is virtue realized. However, each year garden writers and companies that specialize in forecasting cultural trends come out with trends for the coming year. And even though I don’t totally believe that anyone has a crystal ball for the future, some trends can be generally expected to continue when they are scrutinized within the context of current socioeconomic conditions. So here are my garden trends for 2013. Take them with a grain of salt, or earth. The No. 8 trend at globaltrends.com is “Business stepping up: From proﬁt to purpose.” This trend has
manifested itself here on the North Shore with groups like the Edible Garden Project whose mission is to “increase access to fruits and vegetables for people in need, increase garden space and land used for fruit and vegetable production on the North Shore.” Other for-purpose groups like the Evergreen Foundation have made inroads into creating natural garden spaces in parks and residential gardens. Evergreen believes they can “solve today’s critical environmental challenges by bringing diverse groups of people together, inspiring them with ideas and engaging them to take action.” Expect more for-purpose companies in gardening to spring up as the
younger generation looks for purpose and not just proﬁt. From JWTIntelligence. com comes this prediction of “Health & Happiness: Hand in Hand,” which conveniently ﬁts into the gardening lifestyle. Most gardeners are absolutely happy working in the garden with the added beneﬁt of working their heart, lungs, muscles and mind. Gardening has long been one of the most popular hobbies in the world for good reason; it’s good for the body, mind, soul and these days, the wallet if you grow veggies. Many people I have spoken to ﬁnd gardening to be one of the most relaxing and enjoyable See Homegrown page 14

Barb Lunter THE weather is cooler now and I’m sure we will get our share of snow soon. It’s always nice to curl up by the ﬁre during the winter months. If you have a natural burning ﬁreplace in your home and your wood supply is low you may want to order a cord of wood to get you through the winter months ahead. There is nothing like the sound and smell of a real wood-burning ﬁreplace. These days many of us have gas ﬁreplaces in our homes but when we get a chance to sit by the real thing, nothing compares. There’s no question that a wood-burning ﬁreplace takes a bit of work to run. It’s best to have a good supply of ﬁrewood on hand for the winter. Most people order their ﬁrewood by the cord. If you are not familiar with the term “cord of wood,” here are a few guidelines to keep in mind before ordering one. A “cord” is the ofﬁcial measurement of ﬁrewood. A “full” measures four feet high by four feet wide by eight feet long and has a volume of 128 cubic feet. This is a large amount of ﬁrewood. Basically it measures two full-size pickup truck loads (eight-foot box). If the wood is stacked carefully, it can probably be level with the truck box sides. A “face” cord or “rick” of wood is four feet high

A crackling ﬁre adds ambience during the long, cold winter months. by eight feet long and it averages 16 inches wide. Looking at it a different way, a face cord is equal to onethird of a full cord. You may ﬁnd ﬁrewood suppliers sell their cords according to their own terminology. This can be confusing to the buyer so always clarify your purchase to know what you are really getting for your money. The best scenario is to stick to dealers who sell their units of ﬁrewood that are

related to the standard, full cord. Loads of woodpiles in minivans and station wagons are difﬁcult to assess and price accordingly. Metro Vancouver would like to remind you to only burn properly seasoned or dried wood and uncontaminated materials in your ﬁreplace this winter. Materials that should not be burned are wet wood (causes excessive smoke and cools down the ﬁre), pressuretreated wood, painted wood,
particleboard and plywood, driftwood (as it is salt-laden), household rubbish, plastics, cardboard and coal. Only clean, dry-seasoned ﬁrewood is environmentally friendly and therefore it should be the only material burned in your ﬁreplace.

Homegrown food movement a growing trend From page 11 pastimes and many of those people plan to increase the amount of space dedicated to vegetable production. Garden centres already know that herbs, vegetables and fruit trees are continually selling well. With concerns over pesticides in our food supply and genetically modiﬁed Frankenfood scaring us, home-grown food production is expected to grow. At canadiangardencentre.ca, Brandi Cowen writes about Trends for 2013, speciﬁcally “Food for thought and Buy Local” in which she comments, “The local food movement is holding its ground heading into 2013, and edibles are helping a new generation get into gardening.” The “think local, buy local” trend is a natural ﬁt for any garden centre, but many are missing out on some obvious opportunities, Cowen writes. The article also features Susan McCoy of Garden Media Group: “I don’t understand why more garden centres haven’t set up farmers’ markets? And not on a weekend, because that’s when you’re busy,” she says.
McCoy makes a good point. Local garden centres are a good place for seasonal farmers’ markets regardless of municipal zoning or competition issues. Who knows, maybe we’ll see FarmerWorks or Dykhof Farm? Based on my own experience as a garden designer, builder and horticulture teacher I believe people are looking for several things in their gardens. Firstly, we are all in need of a place to rest our weary heads and aside from the sanctuary of house, the sanctuary of garden has always been the number one reason people have contracted me to build their gardens. Look for the ongoing trend of creating outdoor living space to continue in the form of year-round entertainment areas, outdoor cooking rooms or the creation of any space that is relaxing, interesting, stimulating and lets us seek sanctuary from the hectic world. Secondly, we are all busy and the 1950s style of the excessively manicured garden is declining. We simply do not have the time to fuss and preen all day long. Low maintenance, but beautiful gardens are coming into vogue now. And low maintenance means
an end to the resource sucking, time consuming and outdated idea of the perfect residential lawn. Thirdly, many people are concerned that we have not been told the truth about the poisonous long-term effects of pesticides on the environment, food supply and our children. Accordingly, people want earth- and child-friendly pest controls. Vinegar is the new Roundup. Baking soda is the new Funginex. Water washing is the new aphid control. The last trend I see continuing is the “Growing your own food at home” movement that has swept the world over the past decade. More and more gardeners, concerned parents and millennials are starting to grow food at home. Why? Because homegrown food is fresher, we know exactly what we add to our soil and the satisfaction of growing food at home makes it taste that much better.

MAKE rainy days fun by getting creative with the kids while indoors. Some fun options include building a fort, creating a skit and playing old-fashioned board games.
Kids at home? Get creative
WHAT do you do when the weather is simply awful and the kids have been in the house for days?
It’s a good idea to have them get outside for at least a short while every day. But let’s face it, there are simply days when the outside is so inhospitable you are stuck Parenting Today inside with antsy, bored and usually bickering kids. Kathy Lynn Decide that this will be terriﬁc family time and get creative. Push the furniture back, turn some great dance music on high volume and start moving. Your kids may want to create a movie or play. They can write the script (maybe from a favourite story) and start rehearsals. This will keep them occupied for more than one lousy weather day. Then invite the neighbours and let them perform. You may even suggest they call kids who live nearby to be cast members. Or, let the kids build a megafort using tables, chairs and blankets. The fort should stay around for a number of days and they can even camp out and sleep in it. The kids can also add to the fort by bringing out the Lego and building a town right beside the fort. Soon all their stuffed animals, any toy vehicles and plastic action ﬁgures will have found a home in this new town. When you let them keep the fort and town (or anything else they decide to build) in place for days it creates a unique, personal and fun play area. Suddenly being cooped up is fun. And they will be much too engaged to want to watch TV for hours on end. Enjoy an indoor picnic which can, of course, be held in the fort or any other likely location. Treasure hunts are great fun. The kids go from one place to another, and ﬁnd a clue at each place. You set up a series
of clues all around the house with a prize at the end. For younger kids the clues can be simple — “look in the freezer.” But for older kids make it a challenge — “look in a place that would make penguins happy.” If they really get into the game you can suggest they make up their own clues. Some kids just love creating clues and will play this game happily for hours. Bring out the old fashioned board games. Your kids may be surprised to learn that not all games need a computer or iPad. If your kids are of various ages, adjust the rules to level the playing ﬁeld. Then go for it. Pull out some favourite family videos and have a movie time. Make sure you include popcorn. What is watching movies without popcorn? You can also have some interesting conversations about what they are watching. Who is their favourite character? Why? Which character do they think is most like them? What was the best scene in the movie? The kitchen is a great place to head when you are trying to entertain the kids. Kids love to bake cookies. So get going. Who says you can only make shaped cookies at Christmastime? Let the kids cut out their favourite shapes and decorate them with sprinkles or coloured icing. This is also a great time to pull out all the art supplies or the playdough. Let the kids ﬁnger paint, or draw and colour. Some of the these activities will require your involvement and with some, once you get the kids started, you can go about your business. It’s a good idea to mix and match. Plan an activity with the kids, then let them work on their own. Listen to them playing and step in when you can sense that peace and harmony are only going to last for about another two minutes. When you can predict the moment when the children will need adult supervision, being stuck in the house can be fun for all.

Lonely seniors die sooner.
For violinist and future music teacher Jesse Kazemir, it was his ﬁrst big show with the youth group. In the audience, watching intently, was his future violin student Phaelen Wheeler. Following the concert, Kazemir headed back to the Lower Mainland while Wheeler returned to his home in Penticton. The paths of the two like-minded musicians wouldn’t cross again for nearly ﬁve years until Wheeler’s family moved to Surrey and Phaelen was looking for a teacher. After seeing the concert, the inspired 10 year old requested a violin for subsequent Christmas and birthday gifts, but it wasn’t in the family’s budget. “Just this last summer, Phaelen got handed a violin from a second cousin who had passed away,” said Angela Wheeler, Phaelen’s mother. “I knew that once he had the violin in his hands, we had to get a teacher right away.” Kazemir, 17, had helped his sister learn a few things on the guitar, but hadn’t done much teaching. A mutual friend introduced Kazemir and Phaelen and their lessons began with neither party aware of their ﬁrst meeting at the concert years earlier. “That same guy who had introduced us mentioned that I was from the North Shore Celtic Ensemble,” Kazemir says. “Neither of us had realized before then that it was the same group.” “They hit it off beautifully, right from the get-go,” Angela adds. Because the violin relies so much on a ﬁne touch, it is not the easiest instrument to learn. “For the ﬁrst month or two it never sounds very good and it’s always a lot of scratchy noises,” Kazemir says. “It’s very unpleasant before you start getting a good tone.” Gaining a sense of the instrument and just where your ﬁngers should be at all times can be a lifelong pursuit. Despite the relative inexperience of both parties, their union seems to be a success. “He’s progressing very fast,” Kazemir says. “He’s quite musical, also I think it’s because he’s wanted to play violin for so long. He’s very eager, and as a result of that, practises quite a bit.” Having played the violin for more than a decade, Kazemir has come to enjoy the role of teacher. “I remember when I was learning and it’s kind of fun going back over those early, simple songs,” he says. Wheeler has been performing those simple tunes for his toddler sibling, possibly moving toward a bigger stage. “He’s looking forward to, one day, possibly joining up with the Celtic Ensemble,” Angela says.

According to a press release, Potts-Wong (retired) was among 33 exceptional B.C. Corrections employees from the Ministry of Justice who received awards from Judith Guichon, lieutenant-governor of British Columbia, at a medal presentation ceremony at Government House on Nov. 30. The annual awards are presented to honour corrections staff members who have reached milestones for exemplary service, beginning at 20 years for the Corrections Exemplary Service Medal and 30 years for the Corrections Exemplary Service Bar. Six of the 33 award recipients received the Corrections Exemplary Service Bar. The awards are the most prestigious national decoration for corrections professionals in Canada. The medal recognizes exceptionally commendable service and is not to be used merely to recognize lengthy terms of service. The ﬁrst Canadian medal to recognize long and outstanding service in the public safety professions was the Police Exemplary Service Medal, created on Aug. 12, 1983. The second was the Corrections Exemplary Service Medal, created by Letters Patent signed by Her Majesty the Queen on June 11, 1984. Potts-Wong has dedicated the past 20 years to serving her community, demonstrating her passion and commitment through exemplary service, said North Vancouver-Seymour MLA Jane Thornthwaite in the statement. Fellow MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale Naomi Yamamoto added that corrections employees often work in difﬁcult situations, and their role is vital to a strong community. She offered her gratitude to Potts-Wong for her service and congratulated her on this well-deserved award.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to EXCEPTIONAL CUISINE
Resolve to be reasonably healthy Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard
IT’S all over for another year, the chocolates, the eggnog, the Christmas pudding, the whole nine yards. When we talk about stufﬁng over the holidays it doesn’t just refer to what’s inside the turkey. The coming of the new year brings with it the inevitable vow to eat healthy food and shed some pounds, but if you resign yourself to a diet of lettuce leaves and carrot sticks you’ll be doomed to failure. If you eat reasonable portions of food that tastes great and doesn’t contain a lot of fat, you’ll be taking a sensible ﬁrst step towards weight control. The three recipes below offer a whole day’s worth of eating the right way. Add some healthy snacks (fresh fruit, low-fat yogurt, a latte made with skim milk) to bring your daily calorie total to approximately 1,500 calories.
Quick & Easy Breakfast Sandwich
THE DISH Columnist Deana Lancaster gets ready for Dine Out Vancouver. See story PAGE 22
This is a fast, easy and healthy version of the fast food breakfast sandwich we all know and love. 1 whole wheat or multigrain English mufﬁn 1 Tbsp grated cheddar cheese ½ tsp butter 1 large egg 1 or 2 ¼-inch thick slices of a large vine-ripened tomato 2 thin slices Black Forest ham Salt and freshly ground black pepper Toast the English mufﬁn, and while it’s still hot from the toaster sprinkle the cheese evenly over both halves. Melt the butter in a small non-stick skillet over medium-high heat (this small amount of butter makes the egg taste a lot better than spraying the skillet with cooking spray); break the egg into a small bowl and whisk it with a fork. Add the egg to the skillet and briskly stir it with a spatula until it’s cooked. Spoon the scrambled egg onto the cheese-topped mufﬁn bottom. In the same skillet sauté the tomato slice and the slices of ham until heated through (or you can leave the tomato uncooked

A toaster, a spatula and a skillet are all you need to avoid the drive-thru window and make your own 350calorie egg and ham sandwich. if you prefer). Place the ham slices and tomato slice on top of the egg. Season with a tiny bit of salt and as much pepper as you like, and top with the other half of the English mufﬁn. Makes one sandwich, approximately 350 calories.
Spinach Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms 4 large portobello mushrooms, wiped clean with a damp paper towel ¼ cup reduced-calorie Italian dressing or balsamic vinaigrette, divided use ¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
1 clove garlic, ﬁnely minced 2 10 oz. bags baby spinach ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Twist or cut the stems off the mushrooms; chop the stems and set aside. With a spoon, scrape the gills out of the mushroom caps and discard gills. Use one tablespoon of the dressing to brush the tops (rounded sides) of the mushroom caps; place the caps rounded-side down in a shallow foil-lined baking dish. Heat the remaining dressing in a sauté pan over medium-high heat; add the mushroom stems, red pepper
and garlic; cook and stir for two minutes. Add the spinach; reduce heat to medium and cook until spinach is wilted. Spoon the mixture evenly into the mushroom caps and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender. Makes two servings, approximately 300 calories per serving.
Quinoa, Cucumber & Tomato Salad With Chicken 1 cup quinoa 3 cups water or low-sodium
chicken broth ¼ to ½ tsp salt 2 cups diced cucumber ¼ cup ﬁnely chopped red onion 2 cups halved grape tomatoes 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar 4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil ¼ tsp cumin 3 cups chopped cooked chicken (a supermarket rotisserie chicken makes it easy) ½ cup chopped cilantro 1 ripe avocado, peeled and cut into thin slices See Good page 22

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to THE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY
Park riding soars in popularity Skiing makes a comeback thanks to freestyle niche
Annie Ellison Contributing writer
THERE were times, back in the 1990s and 2000s, when the future of skiing was staring down an icy chute of uncertainty: among young people, the sport had all but reached the end of cool.
Just about every young person who wasn’t a competitive racer was trading in his or her uncomfortable boots, poles and skis for a simpler life on one board complete with soft, comfortable boots, marking a dramatic shift in slope culture. But the sound of ski boots clanking around ski lodges across Canada in 2012 means the poles and planks are not going anywhere and a lap through the terrain park on Mount Seymour conﬁrms that skiing has made a raging comeback among young people, especially those focused on the freestyle niche of “park riding” — hitting features such as rails, boxes and picnic tables and spinning off of specially designed jumps. The traditional forms of freestyle skiing consisted exclusively of aerials and moguls which, true to their acrobatic roots, are judged stifﬂy on body position, form and ﬂawless landing during twists and somersaults (much like Olympic diving). Because the judging was so technical, many skiers looked almost identical to the next when performing the tight inversions and rotations with the stiffness of a mummy. Freestyle skiing now encompasses half pipe, slope style and big air, in addition to aerials and moguls. Looking at the top three ﬁnishers in the slopestyle event at the ﬁnal 2012 Dew Tour stop in Breckenridge, Colo. on Dec. 19, some observers noted that 2012 ﬁrst place competitor Russ Henshaw showed a completely different riding style than third place ﬁnisher Henrik Harlaut. So how did we get here? For years, skiers were not allowed in terrain parks. Skis were too stiff and the edges were too sharp to do what the snowboarders were doing. What we know as the “new school” wave of freestyle skiing ultimately started off with mogul skiers hitting the terrain park, says freestyle ski

ROB Wilhelmmson ﬂies off a jump called “city booter” at Mt. Seymour. Following many skiers’ decision to hang up their poles and planks for snowboards in recent years, skiing has made a major comeback among young people, particularly those focused on park riding, hitting features such as rails, boxes and picnic tables, as well as spinning off of specially designed jumps. coach Devyn Slocum. In 2005, Salomon rolled out the Teneighty, the ﬁrst ever soft, twin-tip ski and revolutionized the sport by allowing skiers to ride backwards.
“From there it just kept rolling,” says Slocum. During the 1990s, snowboarding was doing everything the rigid, old school ski community was holding back. Snowboarders
broke all the rules, built jumps and features in terrain parks, slid rails in urban environments and challenged the status quo. To this day, established mountains such as Alta Ski
Resort in Utah do not permit snowboarders in the downhill area. Mike Douglas, the mastermind behind the See Snowboarding page 25

Snowboarding paved the way for park skiing From page 24 Teneighty, was one of the coaches who encouraged his freestyle riders to mess around and play in the park in addition to their training, says Slocum. “That helped to break out of the stiff, old school thing,” says Slocum. Some would say that this ability to experiment and mess around on the mountain is what is drawing skiers back from “the dark side,” but skiing is branding a whole new dark side of its own. “If snowboarding hadn’t come in the park, skiing wouldn’t have come in the park,” says Slocum. Something that snowboarding brought to the hill from skateboarding was the ability to ride in either direction with either foot forward. This versatility in how to land and take off saw snowboarding progress immensely in its ﬁrst 20 years. But for skiers, the switch isn’t merely to the other foot, it’s riding backwards. Before skiers could ride, take off or land backwards, it was difﬁcult for them to progress. “Going from a straight air to a 360 is a pretty huge step,” says Slocum. “Those half-rotations really allowed the sport to progress.”
“Steez” is all about riding with style. “It’s a huge part of park skiing,” says Slocum. “The big difference between aerials and free skiing is instead of having a speciﬁc style you’ve got to ride with, you have to have your own style. Judges in comps are looking for style,” he says.
“The big difference between aerials and free skiing is instead of having a speciﬁc style you’ve got to ride with, you have to have your own style. Judges in comps are looking for style.” — Devyn Slocum freestyle ski coach Now that the technology has caught up to the spirit of the times, skiers can do far more tricks on rails and big jumps than their snowboarding counterparts can.
“It’s just the biomechanics of having two feet that aren’t strapped in to the same thing,” says Slocum. “There are strange things that skiers can pull off.” Professional skier Andy Parry is continually inventing new tricks such as the “hippi killer,” which are pushing the boundaries of what skiers can do on boxes with separated feet. The hippi killer is a onelegged spin on the box with the other ski in the air behind the rider. Although “steez” primarily focuses on the riding, skiers are even bigger culprits than snowboarders when it comes to making catwalks out of cat tracks. With more ﬂexible skis, riders can also do the butters (presses) on rails and other features with the relaxed style of snowboarders. Slocum hopes the “political parents” and extreme competition from racing do not carry over into the “new school” freestyle competitions, but that the protective equipment does. “Helmets are the coolest thing ever. You’ve gotta wear a helmet,” he says.

Winter Warmth Soup’s On
When it’s cold and dreary, it’s time to make soup. This one is quick and nutritious, with nothing out of the ordinary for young taste buds. Sometimes onions don’t appeal to picky eaters - either cut them into larger pieces so they can be picked out, or puree them in a food processor and they’ll be missed. Ingredients: Protein – 1 lb hamburger, three Italian sausages, or a can of rinsed and drained lentils. 2T olive oil, 1 large chopped onion, 3 diced carrots, 1 can tomato paste, 2 cloves minced garlic, 3 beef or veggie bouillon cubes, 4 C water, 1 bunch chopped kale, grated parmesan. Instructions: Brown and drain hamburger or bake the sausages and cut into small pieces. In a soup pot, cook onion, carrots and garlic in olive oil until onions are translucent. Stir in tomato paste, bouillon, water and meat or lentils. Bring to a boil, then simmer until carrots are soft, about 35 minutes. Add kale and cook until tender. Serve sprinkled with parmesan.
