Blaze leaves WV home a ruin Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
IT could be weeks before investigators determine the cause of a ﬁre that totally destroyed a West Vancouver waterfront home Sunday night. Several 9-1-1 calls came in just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday when neighbours spotted smoke and ﬂames coming from a home on the corner of Isleview Road and Copper Cove Road. “Fireﬁghters arrived on the scene to ﬁnd a two-storey wood-frame home on the waterfront mostly engulfed in ﬂame and a very, very vigorous ﬁre burning in the house,” said Martin Ernst, assistant ﬁre chief with West Vancouver Fire and Rescue. Once they had determined that no one was in the home, ﬁreﬁghters sized up the scope of the ﬁre and determined it was too far gone to risk sending anyone inside. “We continued on a See Fire page 3

Liberals deliver balanced budget Jane Seyd email@example.com
THE B.C. government delivered a 2013 budget Tuesday afternoon that relies on asset sales and increases in income tax for both corporations and the wealthy to remain balanced. Finance Minister Mike De Jong is predicting a slim $197 million surplus for the coming ﬁscal year on a total budget of about $44 billion. To get there, De Jong said the government will have to keep a lid on spending, while raising taxes more than $1 billion over the next two years. That includes a tax increase of more than two per cent on those making over $150,000 a year. General

corporate income tax will go up one per cent on April 1 of this year. Medical premiums will also go up by four per cent. The government plan also calls for $625 million from sales of surplus assets over the next two years, including 16 properties. De Jong said deals are pending in the next year. De Jong said the government will continue to keep a tight lid on spending, with “efﬁciencies” expected to save more than $1 billion over the next three years. Spending on health is expected to rise by $2.4 billion over three years.
North Vancouver-Lonsdale MLA Naomi Yamamoto defended the budget Tuesday, calling it “a modest, responsible budget.” “It’s certainly not a classic pre-election budget,” she said. Yamamoto pointed to B.C.’s relatively low taxpayer-supported debt load and good credit rating as an indication government spending is under control. She also pointed to a report by economist Tim O’Neill as lending credibility to the government’s numbers. “He conﬁrmed our government forecasts are legitimate,” she said. “We’re being very, very prudent.” Not everyone agreed. North Vancouver Lonsdale NDP candidate Craig Keating said balancing the budget depends on a signiﬁcant asset sale. “There’s a big question mark on whether See BC page 5

City wants say in terminal approval Resolution voices concerns on Richardson grain silo expansion
Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
CITY of North Vancouver council will continue to lobby Port Metro Vancouver and Richardson International to ﬁnd a more “neighbourly” solution for a proposed expansion of a grain terminal on the waterfront. Council passed a resolution Monday night expressing “concerns about the practicality of expanding the subject terminal as proposed from a safety, environmental and community impact perspective. …” The council resolution went on to request that PMV allow the project to be subject to the city’s permitting, ﬁre and emergency response planning processes. Richardson applied to PMV last August to build a 45-metre high grain silo to the east of its existing silo as the global price for grain has shot up in recent years. The revelation drew outcry from community members who live in eye, nose and earshot of the terminal, as well as city council. The port never mentioned Richardson’s plans during months of consultation for the Low Level Road expansion project over the last two years. “Nothing was said about this,” said Coun. Don Bell. “At the time we were discussing the Low Level Road, we were talking about the sound bouncing off the existing silos that are there and the impact on views.” While he acknowledged that there is no guarantee that a view will be preserved forever, Bell said residents have a right to continue living in their homes without undue risk of air and noise pollution. “There is already concern about dust from the operation and if we see this end up going from three million metric tonnes a year to ﬁve, there’s going to be a proportionate increase in the amount of dust. It appears there is no further mitigation efforts planned,” he said. “It’s something that is frustrating because it is beyond our control and yet we have a duty to speak up on behalf of the residents that we know will be adversely affected by this.” After being one of the biggest supporters of the Low Level Road deal, Coun. Craig Keating said the application represents a potential sullying of the relationship between PMV and the city and its residents due to a lack of communication or responsiveness on the part of the port. “My larger concern is when there’s a certain tone-deafness with Richardson and Port Metro Vancouver over this development, it simply makes the job harder for future port activities to proceed and I want future port activities to proceed,” he said. “I think we are in a dangerous situation where the Richardson application is burning up a lot of the social capital and good will needlessly.”

Port Metro Vancouver 2012 report
Port predicts exports will soar Brent Richter email@example.com
EXPORTS of coal and grain from Port Metro Vancouver’s North Shore facilities were steady throughout 2012, while potash exports took a tumble. But exports are headed into record territory in the coming years, the port’s management predicted in its annual summary releases on Friday. For grain, which gets loaded at Richardson International and Cargill Canada, it was a “very solid year,” according to Robin Silvester, PMV’s president and CEO. “Just fractionally below our 15.8 million tonnes of grain last year,” he said. “It would be safe to assume that Richardson (International) and Cargill (Canada) have had good, strong years.”
Coal exports from all of PMV were up two per cent in 2012, though a shipping accident at Westshore Terminals resulted in a damaged elevator and lost productivity. That means Neptune Bulk Terminals likely had a busier than usual year, as it picked up the slack at the end of 2012, Silvester said. Potash exports via Neptune were down 25 per cent in 2012, owing largely to 2011 being a record-setting year and a slowdown in shipping as exporter Canpotex negotiated a new agreement with China, Silvester added. “Our expectation is that coming through 2013, we’ll see potash volumes growing again,” he said. Silvester expects modest gains throughout 2013, but the big jumps in export growth will come in a few years when major expansions to export capacity come online. “All three of those bulk products, in the medium-term, we See Port page 5

While it appears the ﬁre was concentrated in the deck area of the west side of the house, what remains of the building will have to be brought down before investigators can get close enough to pinpoint a cause. “We now are in a situation where the house is unsound structurally so we are going to bring in some heavy machinery so that we can take part of it down to do the investigation,” Ernst said.

Sturdy wins Liberal nomination
Jane Seyd firstname.lastname@example.org
PEMBERTON Mayor Jordan Sturdy will represent the B.C. Liberals as a candidate for West Vancouver – Sea to Sky in the May 14 provincial election. Sturdy won the nomination in the riding on Saturday, beating out Robin Smith, a retired businessman from the North Shore. More than 1,400 of the party faithful voted Friday and Saturday through use of a travelling ballot box that made stops in West Vancouver, Pemberton, Whistler and Squamish. Outgoing MLA Joan McIntyre announced the results in Squamish on
Saturday night. McIntyre, who has held the West Vancouver seat under the Liberal banner for two terms, announced in September she wouldn’t be running for reelection. Sturdy, who owns North Arm Farm in the Pemberton Valley, has been mayor of Pemberton since 2005. He is also a paramedic with the B.C. Ambulance Service and a ski patroller. In the nomination campaign, Sturdy stressed his record of ﬁscal management in keeping municipal taxes low and the importance of a strong economy to maintaining social programs. Sturdy joins incumbent North Shore MLAs Ralph Sultan, Jane Thornthwaite and Naomi Yamamoto, who are all defending Liberal seats heading into the May election.
Sturdy’s West VancouverSea to Sky riding is widely considered a safe Liberal seat. McIntyre won the last election with more than 10,101 votes — nearly 55 per cent — handily beating both the second-place NDP with 4214 votes and the Greens, with 4,082 votes. That pattern of Liberal wins by a large margin has continued unchanged in the West Vancouver riding since 1991, when the Liberals took over the right-of-centre vote from the Social Credit party. In the 1980s John Reynolds represented the riding for governing Social Credit. So far, neither the NDP, Green Party nor Conservatives have declared candidates in West Vancouver Sea to Sky. Longtime NDP campaigner Terry Platt has put her name forward to run against Sultan in West Vancouver-Capilano
— another Liberal stronghold. Yamamoto will go up against NDP candidate and North Vancouver City Councillor Craig Keating plus Ryan
Conroy of the Green Party in North Vancouver-Lonsdale. Jim Hanson of the NDP is challenging Thornthwaite in North Vancouver-Seymour.
BC Hydro debt not factored

that can happen,” he said. Keating said the budget doesn’t take into account the growing debt of BC Hydro. “These are huge numbers,” he said. He also criticized increases to MSP premiums and said the budget has underestimated health-care spending — one of the biggest items in the provincial budget, which is predicted to increase just 2.6 per cent. West Vancouver-Capilano MLA Ralph Sultan described the budget Tuesday as a “good workmanlike” plan based on “careful planning” and “no nonsense.” “There’s very little pizzazz and sex appeal,” he said. Among other budget highlights, tobacco taxes will go up by $2 a carton. The government also announced a one-time educational grant of $1,200 for children born after January 2007 and additional money to create childcare spaces over the next three years.

Port doesn’t deﬁne Canada’s national trade policy From page 3
expect to see really healthy growth,” he said. “If anything, the existing capacity may be the constraint but I think we’ll see a bit of growth in each of them.” Neptune has been given the OK to invest millions in infrastructure to nearly double its coal export capacity in the next two years and Richardson has applied to construct another 45metre concrete silo to boost its annual output. “Richardson, clearly, is still subject to the permit being issued. It’s still in consultation and technical review. If they are successful in that application and we are able to issue a permit, I think that’s probably going to be a
two-year or more construction timeline,” Silvester said. Both applications have led to local controversy, with residents concerned about the increase of industrial noise, dust and the loss of inlet views. “Those are concerns that we absolutely do want to have people engage in the conversation with us on because we have a very robust permitting process and we do a lot of work to consider all those sorts of issues and make sure they’re properly dealt with in the permit,” Silvester said. When it comes to the criticism of the port’s role in exporting coal and the impact that may have on climate change, it is simply outside the port’s narrowly deﬁned mandate, Silvester added. “The broad-based concerns about climate change and coal’s
contribution to that globally and whether we should be exporting coal, that’s clearly an important discussion for some people to have. I think that it’s a discussion that should take place and industry could get more broadly involved in,” Silvester said. “But that’s not really something that’s a relevant consideration in the port’s permitting process because we don’t decide what Canada trades. We don’t deﬁne national trade policy. Our role is to make sure that the capacity to trade the commodities that Canada decides it wants to trade is created in an efﬁcient and responsible manner, considering the concerns of the community and considering the environment as well as the efﬁciency of the supply chain.”

Spin or solve P
ORT Metro Vancouver is perhaps not feeling the love. Last week, it advertised for a communications and advertising agency “to develop and implement a communications program that will increase awareness and understanding of the port and its role in facilitating Canada’s trade, primarily among residents of its bordering communities in the Lower Mainland.” One can only hope that the port does not seriously believe criticism of its activities will cease once its neigbouring citizens attend yet another open house for a lesson in economics and international trade. The vast majority of North Shore residents and certainly its politicians and this paper wish the port all the success in the world. As the port goes, so go the economies of British
Columbia and Canada. And, at a local level, we recognize and appreciate the efforts Neptune Terminals and its president Jim Belsheim have made to give back to the community in the last couple of years. None of this absolves the port from its responsibilities to the municipalities and residents that its component businesses impact. When PMV considers expansion of terminal facilities, it would appear that “good-neighbour” considerations are mostly an afterthought, prompted by protests, rather than the ﬁrst set of criteria applied to new applications. Dust, noise and views are serious consideration to PMV’s closest neighbours. Addressing those concerns and working to mitigate them would go a lot further to improving PMV’s image than any new PR campaign.
Seymour public days hurt Northlands revenue
Dear Editor: I am writing to provide another viewpoint on the proposed changes to public play at Seymour. I am a resident of the District of North Vancouver and a member of Seymour Golf and Country Club expressing a personal opinion. The proposed changes are driven by revenue shortfalls at Northlands and are not intended to deny district residents access to play golf at Seymour. An Oct. 25, 2012 memo by Gary Nedergard, section manager DNV golf facilities to parks manager Gavin Joyce states: “Competing with Seymour G&CC during this past summer has continued to demonstrate the need to address the issue of public play days. In a declining golf market, rounds booked and played at Northlands on Monday’s (sic) and Friday’s (sic) are less than when competition is not an issue during the rest of the week. Any changes that may occur will beneﬁt the overall ﬁnancial performances of Northlands GC.” Only the district can make a statement on Northlands ﬁnancial health, and they have not provided this comprehensive information. However, the district’s ﬁnancial statements and supporting reports
plus ﬁnancial plan workbooks show: Northlands opened in 1997, and annual rounds of golf played peaked in 2001 at about 50,500. By 2008, this had decreased to 47,800 and for 2011 the total rounds played were only 41,400. This is a 9,100 decrease in annual rounds from 2001. The following table provides a comparison of recent budgets and actual results by year. A blank means the information was not readily available. (All amounts: 000s). Budgeted Actual Budgeted Actual revenues revenues operating operating expenditures expenditures 2007 $3,100 2008 $3,222 $2,745 2009 $3,584 $3,100 $3,033 2010 $3,352 $3,038 $2,944 $2,764 2011 $3,000 $2,500 $2,783 With actual revenues being below budget by $300,000 to $500,000 each year, one can only conclude Northlands is not performing ﬁnancially and may be losing money on operations. These ﬁgures do not take into consideration the capital expenditures
that are required each year to maintain the facilities and equipment nor the repayment to the Heritage Fund of the original construction costs for Northlands. When the Seymour lease was signed in 1953, public play days were a practical requirement to provide district residents access to a golf course. Sixty years later, that requirement does not have the same importance, as the district has built an excellent public course, which is available for residents to play. A 2005 survey commissioned by Northlands shows only 30 per cent of its golfers are from the district. This relationship holds true for the public play golfers at Seymour. The proposed changes make available more rounds of golf to DNV residents than they currently enjoy. Council needs to make decisions that are in the best longterm interest of its residents who pay the taxes, not visiting golfers from other communities. If Northlands does not support itself ﬁnancially, it is the non-golﬁng residents of the district who will feel the greatest pain when they are required to subsidize and carry Northlands operations. Philip Rogers, North Vancouver
VIA Rail service divides East and West, rather than linking it
Dear Editor: While I was delighted to see the full page VIA Rail Canada advertisement in Friday’s Feb. 8 edition, I was curious that an agency that just cut service on the Canadian would want to advertise in the West. The Canadian is a delightful cruise train but has neither reasonable fares nor service that one ﬁnds with a more affordable and, thus, successful Amtrak. VIA announces the cuts to the Maritimes
and the West due to budget reasons but then quietly adds 28 new trains to the Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto routes, including an additional new service from Quebec City to Montreal. Yet despite much of the funding for the federal government seemingly coming from the West, there are no daily VIA Rail trains in all of Western Canada. The third largest province does not even get service from Vancouver to Chilliwack where demand exists nor, despite four
studies saying a high-speed train would at least break even, between Edmonton and Calgary. Despite having Western MPs to represent us, it appears that a federal agency is able to ignore its mandate to provide affordable and adequate service to the average taxpaying citizen in the West. Passenger trains with reasonable fares and frequent service provide a successful solution to jammed freeways. Myron Claridge, West Vancouver

Mine permit refusal lands B.C. in court “Regions around the world are ranked as to their jurisdiction’s ‘favourable’ resource extraction policies — and British Columbia is knocking itself down more than a few notches with a recent decision to disallow permitting a potential mine that had received all the necessary federal and provincial [environmental assessment] approvals. . . .” — MSABC, Jan. 24
THE mine discussed in the newsletter of the Mining Suppliers’ Association of B.C. is the Morrison Copper and Gold project of Paciﬁc Booker Minerals Inc. Had the approvals been granted, the mine would be located 35 kilometres north of the Village of Granisle and 65 km northeast of Smithers, B.C. Instead, the company announced late in the afternoon of Feb. 13 it had retained John J.L. Hunter, Q.C. to advance Booker’s litigation against the province. The lawsuit is a consequence of the government’s refusal to issue an Environmental Assessment Certiﬁcate for the company’s proposed Morrison Lake mine. Considering my opposition to ﬁsh farms and the Site C Dam, you may wonder why I would support a mine, but when you hear the story of Booker’s 10-year experience with our provincial and federal governments, you’ll know the answer. In May 2012, Premier Christy Clark boasted the province would have eight new mines in operation by 2015; she gave no details as to which mines were on her list. Six months later, her claim was repeated by Rich Coleman, Minister of Energy, Mines and Natural Gas. According to information provided by vice-president and chief operating ofﬁcer Erik Tornquist, Booker began the pre-application stage of the required environmental assessment process on Sept. 30, 2003.
Elizabeth James “The review phase itself began in July, 2010 and our application was rejected on Oct. 1, 2012,” he said. Tornquist’s fellow director, West Vancouver’s John Plourde, afﬁrmed the timeline and added, “The company passed the test of ‘no signiﬁcant adverse effects’ both provincially and federally.” Not surprisingly, Plourde said the uncertainty created by the political decision is not good for investment or industry. “The company’s 1,100-plus shareholders lost $140 million in equity which will not now be invested in the B.C. economy,” he wrote. Those numbers are made even worse when you delve into the costs Booker shouldered in its attempts to bring the mine into production. Apart from the $10-million cost of the environmental assessment process itself, Tornquist says the company has spent “in excess of $30 million since it began to develop the Morrison property.” Even without knowing which mines were on Clark’s list of eight, Coleman’s rejection of a company that had provided evidence it had addressed every concern raised by federal and provincial regulators, just doesn’t make sense. Why string a corporation along playing a very expensive game of hammer-the-peg, if the government intended all along to overrule its expert assessors? By “expensive,” I mean for taxpayers as well as the company because if Coleman’s decision is allowed to stand, the thousands of man-hours
spent by provincial and federal regulators to ensure Booker’s operational compliance will have been wasted. Could the B.C. Liberals be that desperate for every last “green” vote? If that is what’s afoot, how many miningrelated voters still hoping for an as-promised “businesssavvy” government just threw up their hands in disgust? A two-page company news release dated Feb. 6, (see paciﬁcbooker.com) outlines
a raft of now-to-be lost economic beneﬁts: Jettisoned are 1,117 construction jobs; gone will be 601 jobs a year over the 21-year anticipated mine operation; federal and provincial tax revenues and forfeited increases to the provincial gross domestic product (GDP). And the beat goes on. More polite than I, Granisle Mayor Linda McGuire expressed her

RCMP seek witnesses to deadly accident
Brent Richter email@example.com
NORTH Vancouver RCMP are pleading for witnesses to come forward and help close off an investigation after a young man was struck and killed by a vehicle while crossing the street Feb. 9.
Alexander “A.J.” Ferguson, a 22-year-old Squamish Nation member, was crossing Forbes Avenue at First Street around 6:15 p.m. when he was hit by a driver headed northbound on Forbes. Paramedics rushed Ferguson to Lions Gate Hospital where he was pronounced dead. “As far as the investigation into the collision goes, we do not believe alcohol is a factor on the
driver’s part. Distracted driving and speed are still under investigation as possible contributing factors to the collision,” said Cpl. Doug Trousdell, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. “We’re interested in witnesses. We believe there are people who actually would have seen the collision, but we’re looking for those people to come forward.” Investigators say the dark clothes Ferguson was wearing at the time may have been a factor. There are no records of other pedestrians being hit at that intersection, Trousdell said, however it is an unmarked crossing and vehicles tend to drive fast coming up Forbes. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Const. Jana Jardine at 604-2904558.

to ﬁsh and ﬁsh habitat with the successful implementation of mitigation measures and conditions.” I ﬁrst heard about Booker’s decade-long efforts to gain federal-provincial approvals for its project early last November — 13 months after the B.C. Liberals handed $30 million to Boss Power Corporation on the courthouse steps. That settlement was to compensate the corporation after the government abruptly implemented a province-wide ban on uranium mining, which included the Boss operation south of Kelowna. Was the money, estimated to be $21 million more than the corporation had invested in “sunk costs” prior to the ban, an attempt to avoid the embarrassment of large-print
headlines revealing the government’s political interference with the authority of the chief inspector of mines? Are we headed for a similar costly experience with Booker’s Morrison Lake project, or will Mayor McGuire’s hopes be rewarded? “Many people recognize the time, effort and money (the company) has spent on this project over the past several years,” she said. “We are cautiously optimistic additional effort will be made by Paciﬁc Booker in an attempt to convince government ministries to re-visit their decision.” Could anyone have predicted those efforts would include taking the province to court? One thing is certain about these 12 years of B.C. Liberal governments — the legal profession must think it’s died and gone to heaven. firstname.lastname@example.org

B.C. announces liquor law amendments
Special event rules easier for caterers; local liquor gets tax break Jeremy Shepherd firstname.lastname@example.org
UPCOMING changes to B.C. liquor laws could mean good things brewing for at least one North Vancouver beer maker. The new laws make it easier for bars, breweries and caterers to apply for liquor licences for special events. Breweries will be able to offer mugs of beer in their own on-site lounge, as well as having partnerships with as many as three establishments that pour their brew. Distillers will receive a tax break if they use 100 per cent B.C. ingredients. The changes are set to come into effect March 1. After opening its doors just off Dollarton Highway last summer, Bridge Brewing Company is planning to take advantage of the new laws, according to founder Jason Stratton. “Out of our sampling or tasting room, previously we could only sell up to 375 millilitres of beer, which really is not even a pint or a full glass,” Stratton says, discussing the company’s signature pale ale. “With the new changes we’re able to apply to be essentially a liquor primary — which means we can serve more than one glass of beer and can actually also serve wine or other liquors.” Becoming a liquor-primary establishment will require approval from the District of North Vancouver. Located in an ofﬁce/industrial park, Stratton said the new laws could allow Bridge Brewing to expand beyond its 1,000 square feet of ﬂoor space. “Another thing that it potentially allows us to do is have a picnic area or an outdoor patio area,” he said. “With these new licences we can actually be a destination for people to ride their bikes to in the summer and sit on our picnic area and have a beer out in the sun.” The company could also apply for permits to bring their seasonal brew to parties, corporate events or weddings, Stratton said. While Bridge Brewing doesn’t make hard alcohol, Stratton said the new laws may make distilleries a proﬁtable business in the future. “If you’re making distilled alcohol, whiskey or vodka, and use all B.C. ingredients it’s hugely favourable,” he said. “I think there’s going to be a rush into that market. The margins have been the issue (preventing) businesses from getting involved in distilling. Being tax free, that’s the largest single cost of producing liquor, and having that not there is a huge advantage to the distilleries.”

West Van crime stats
Property crimes drop Jeremy Shepherd email@example.com
PROPERTY crimes plunged while violent crimes increased slightly in the District of West Vancouver in 2012. The West Vancouver Police Department recorded 1,190 incidents of property crime in 2012, a 22 per cent drop when measured against the ﬁve-year average. Shoplifting and mischief were the two most common types of property crime, accounting for nearly 40 per cent of all non-violent theft. Shoplifting rose 13 per cent over the ﬁve-year average in 2012 with police arresting 243 customers looking for a ﬁveﬁnger discount. Most shoplifters were between the ages of 38 and 47. There were also 154 incidents of theft from auto and 121 incidents of fraud. While property crime dripped, slight increases were reported in both violent crimes and drug offences. The district recorded 309 incidents of violent crime in 2012, marking an increase from the ﬁve-year average of 298. Some of that increase is due to a 42 per cent increase in violent thefts, with 17 robberies recorded in 2012. WVPD also reported 75 incidents of uttering threats, an increase of 19 per cent over the ﬁve-year average. Physical force was used in 85 per cent of assault cases, with handguns used in one per cent of incidents. WVPD recorded 179 drug offences in 2012, a six per cent bump compared with the ﬁve-year average of 170. In 87 per cent of cases, the suspects were in possession of cannabis. In fewer than six per cent of cases, suspects were charged with trafﬁcking or production. Motor vehicle incidents plunged by 15 per cent, but there were higher rates of both fatalities and injuries. Calls for service fell by more than 500 from the ﬁve-year average of 15,241 to 14,705 in 2012.

Grow herbs and enjoy fresh clips for dinner
Todd Major THE latest trend in the hundred mile diet has chefs at upscale restaurants growing herbs on rooftop gardens to feed customers fresh produce. So why shouldn’t everyone grow herbs at home? To some people this may seem like a daunting task. Where should I grow herbs? What do I need to get started? Which herbs will grow in my garden? What about insect pests? Wait, stay calm. Let’s go slow and not talk ourselves out of anything before we even get started. Herbs are among the easiest plants in the world
to grow primarily due to their geographic origin from regions of the world that have dry climates and lean soils, making most herbs tough, drought tolerant with low nutrient requirements. Herbs such as rosemary, various thymes, lemon balm, pineapple sage, several mint species and many others can be easily grown in average garden soil at home with little care. Most herbs will also grow well in containers much easier than most veggies, which require deeper soil and high levels of soil fertility. Herbs also live for several years compared to veggies, which generally live one year. There are real beneﬁts in growing your own herbs at home. Freshness is No. 1. If store-bought freshness is good enough for you, there’s always the realization of “you are what you eat” that comes home profoundly when we consider the problems with modern industrial farming methods. Do you like pesticides with your herbs? Me neither and when I grow herbs at home I have no worries about what’s in or on my herbs. If that’s not enough
to change your mind how about cost? It is so cheap to grow herbs at home, it costs pennies to produce rosemary, thyme, sage and many other herbs at home with the added beneﬁt of not having to run down to the store to pick up some herbs you may be missing for a recipe or a special dinner with friends. For the beginner, I always suggest starting small to build conﬁdence. Try growing just one of your favourite herbs in the garden. Take rosemary, for example, which is easy to grow, forgiving in its requirements while constantly providing fresh clips to serve with dinner. Rosemary needs drainage that can be provided by digging deep into the soil to prepare the soil with some reasonable but not necessarily rich soil that drains easily. Don’t go crazy adding amendments. In fact, avoid them. If you think you need to improve your drainage, then add some angular sand (concrete sand) or crushed gravel and mix it with the topsoil. Rosemary likes heat so plant it near or against the house on the south or west side. Do not fertilize rosemary ever. Just water it during the summer drought

ROSEMARY grown against the south or west side of the house can provide a yearround source of fresh herbs for the kitchen. and don’t water it at any other time of year. For those people who live in apartments or condos, container gardening is the ideal way to grow herbs and even a few veggies. Start simply with one or two herbs in pots on the deck or patio. Herbs are generally easier to grow in containers than veggies because herbs prefer drought, tolerate being root bound like life in a pot provides and they require no chemical fertilizer to grow healthy. Choose a larger container rather than a small container to avoid outgrowing the container too quickly and to lessen watering demands in summer. Do not add any chards, foam chips, rocks or any other garbage to the bottom of the pot; it is
simply unnecessary. Just ﬁll the container with soil to the bottom of the pot and plant your herb of choice. Most herbs prefer bright sunshine and some warmth to grow well but several species are tolerant of the partial shade founds on north facing balconies. Specialty herbs like dill, fennel and lovage grow as large as two metres tall and therefore require sufﬁcient space in the garden to develop properly, making them less likely to be grown easily on a balcony in a pot or in a small garden. Larger herbs like bay laurel (Laurus nobilis) and California bay (Umbellularia californica), collectively and commonly known in cooking circles as bay leaves, can grow as large as 15 metres tall. But
both of those bay trees can be grown in pots for several years before they become too big to handle. And both bay trees can be grown in open ground in the garden as long as they have good drainage, protection from winter winds, no chemical fertilizer and lots of direct sunshine. Both bay trees would probably survive longer without suffering frost damage in areas below Highway 1. Give herb growing at home a try and enjoy some fresh clips for dinner.

Demystify ﬁve phases of design, construction
Building by Design Kevin Vallely
TO recognize the value in a service, one needs to understand what it provides.
We all have a pretty strong sense what an electrician, a dentist or a mechanic will provide but when considering the services of a design professional things often get blurry. The design professional is often seen as the dreamer and the romantic, the individual happily nested in the clouds oblivious to the prosaic workings of the world below but when this design professional happens to be in the construction business, an industry with two feet ﬁrmly on the ground, confusion can set in. Most homeowners wanting to renovate their home or build a new one recognize that a designer or architect is an important part of the process but they often don’t fully understand what role they play in it. Speaking in the broadest of terms it’s the job of the designer or architect to take the dreams of a homeowner and transform them into a design that realizes these aspirations while incorporating the ideas and inspirations of the designer as well — drawn from training and experience — to create something that meets or exceeds the homeowner’s expectation, all in a timely manner, within a predetermined budget. The job is one part artist, one part technical expert and one part
project manager. The design and construction of a home, renovated or new, is divided into ﬁve distinct phases: Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documentation, Bidding and Negotiation and Contract Administration. Schematic Design is the blurry start of the process. This is the time when the design professional obtains whatever they can from the client to help shape the dream. Inspiring images and a detailed wish-list are very important to this end but so too is an understanding of the personality of the speciﬁc client. Questions need to be asked and behaviours need to be observed. Are the clients organized by nature or should the architecture assist to this end? Are they private people or entertainers, artists or athletes? Getting in tune with the more subtle habits of the client is very important early on in the process and can play an important role in shaping the design. Once the information is collected, the designing begins. Like a sculptor making their ﬁrst stabs with a chisel, the designer begins to explore the larger ideas of overall form and relationship without fretting the details. There’s little point in worrying about where to put the door bell if you haven’t decided where to put the front door. By the end of Schematic Design the project will have a direction, an overall concept, a parti. Like the names of the two homes I have under construction at the moment — the Butterﬂy House and the Cliffhanger residence— that special something in the spirit of the design will have been captured and recognized. The homeowner can expect rough ﬂoor plans, sketchy elevations and a loose 3-D building form. The wish list will have been addressed in addition to other dynamics such as building location, sun

orientation and zoning. One will have a sense on what the home will look like but won’t feel inhibited to make changes. If the design concept is met with approval the architect will then move forward into Design Development. This next stage is exactly as it sounds, taking the Schematic Design and developing it further. The designer or architect now begins to shape in detail the different components of the building. A structural engineer will have been brought in by this point and their input will begin to inform the design. Schematic sketches will have made it into computer-aided design and the design will continue as the magniﬁcation of focus brings a change in perspective. By the end of the Design Development the homeowner can expect a legible set of plans and elevations with an accompanying 3D model (real or virtual). The homeowner will have a very clear idea as to what their ﬁnished home will look like and, when ready, will give the go ahead to move into Construction Documentation. The Construction Documentation phase sees the designer or architect transform the artistic concepts generated in Schematic Design and Design Development phases into a set of technical construction documents that can be submitted for a building permit and used by a builder to construct the home. The original design strategies and planning concepts are put to the test as they are detailed with an eye to their technical integrity. New issues will come to light, as details are resolved and ideas tweaked. It’s essential that the designer not loose sight of the original design concept through this process as there’s always a tendency to be pulled off track by the onslaught of technical considerations. The soaring roof of the Butterﬂy House will still need to be soaring at the end of this
process. An active dialogue between the designer and the engineer will be going on throughout the construction documentation as the ﬁnal structural design is completed. A lean set of construction documents for a home will include dimensioned site plan and ﬂoor plans, elevations, sections and large-scale construction details — and any other information required by the local building authority. A more detailed set will also contain reﬂected ceiling plans (to clarify ceiling shape and form and to locate lights and other ceiling elements), millwork drawings (detailed drawings of built-in cabinetry), interior elevations, speciﬁcations and ﬁnish schedules. Once the construction documents are submitted for building permit, the process moves into the Bidding and Negotiation phase. For residential projects builders rarely commit to a ﬁxed fee for a project, preferring instead to work to a cost-plus arrangement. A builder will submit an estimated cost to complete the project and will add on a management fee for their work — the fee running typically somewhere between 10 and 15 per cent of the total construction cost. This is always an area for negotiation and I will often ask for the management fee to be ﬁxed to offset the perception that it would be proﬁtable for the builder to have the overall budget creep higher. During the Bidding and Negotiation phase the design professional will answer questions and clarify details to help facilitate the homeowner in their selection. Once a contract has been awarded the building process enters the Contract Administration Phase. During this phase the designer or architect will make routine visits to the construction site to ensure the general

They will review and process claims for payment from the builder and will certify that payment reﬂects work done. They will be available to respond to questions as they occur and will issue site instructions as required. As the project nears completion the design professional will carry out a substantial performance review and issue a Substantial Performance Certiﬁcate. The ﬁnal certiﬁcate of payment is issued upon the completion of all deﬁciency work by the builder. A 12-month warranty review is typically carried out
by the designer or architect one year after the date of substantial completion. Understanding how a designer or architect ﬁts into building process is a critical ﬁrst step for the homeowner embarking on the construction of a large-scale renovation or new home. Recognizing the ﬁve phases of design and construction takes the mystery out of the process and provides the homeowner with clearer expectations as to what to expect from their design professional.

‘Basket of securities’ has many beneﬁts
THE surging popularity of exchangetraded funds (ETFs) has many investors wondering if these investments are suitable for retirement savings plans. The management expense ratios (MERs) of ETFs tend to be low, making them an attractive option from an investment-cost standpoint. But, as with any type of investment, many factors must be considered in order to build an effective portfolio. Like mutual funds, ETFs provide participation in a
basket of securities, offering the beneﬁts of diversiﬁcation and liquidity. But the ETF takes the evolution of investing to the next level by “securitizing” these diversiﬁed baskets of securities and listing them on stock exchanges throughout the world. This means that investors can buy and sell their fund like any other exchange-listed equity any time markets are open. For most people, however, the challenges of choosing suitable investments and monitoring those investments remains daunting regardless of whether or not they are using ETFs, mutual funds, or individual securities. In a global investment environment, where markets are increasingly driven by global macroeconomic factors, the value of expertise in professional investment management is more important than ever before. It is in the area

of professional portfolio management techniques that ETFs have delivered the most value and beneﬁt to the investor. Where previously much professional analysis would have focused on individual security selection, global macroeconomic analysis and the resulting asset allocation decisions are now seen as the key drivers of portfolio risk and return. In this context, ETFs can provide the liquidity and affordable access to asset classes that were previously difﬁcult and expensive to access, such as commodities, precious metals, and emerging market ﬁxed income. Furthermore, the proliferation of ETFs now makes it possible for money managers not only to access market returns at a low cost, but also to ﬁne tune a portfolio using specialized ETFs, such as those focused speciﬁcally on one sector or style, such as income generation. As a result, it is now possible to build a better, more diversiﬁed portfolio with as little as $100,000 at less cost than was possible 15 years ago with individual securities. In today’s volatile, globally interconnected investment markets, the need for diversiﬁcation and risk-management has never been more acute. And for something as important as your RRSP portfolio, it’s even more critical to steward capital on a risk-adjusted basis that protects against volatility and losses. The following are six steps I use to help construct ETF portfolios that meet those criteria.
Robyn Graham ■ Use global macro allocations to recognize different secular eras. ■ Employ strategic asset-type allocation to establish net risk. ■ Establish broad asset-type diversiﬁcation to limit strategic risk. ■ Set investment limits for every holding to reduce concentration risk. ■ Utilize pure asset-type index ETFs to limit impact of singlesecurity risk. ■ Probability-weight multiple scenarios to insulate portfolios against future risk.

What to do if your kid just won’t budge Offering a choice gives child a sense of control and autonomy
HAVING a stubborn child can be a real challenge. How can you ever get her to change her mind? The good news is that she will not be a compliant teen. She will do what she believes is right and not follow the crowd. Think of her not as stubborn but as persistent. Now, you have a child who sticks to her guns and will work on something until she is successful. You have changed this maddening characteristic into something positive. But, you still need to

STUBBORN kids are often adamant about what is right or wrong and will not budge once having taken a stand.
handle it with her. I believe that offering kids choices is always a good idea. It gives them a sense of control and autonomy and because you have offered the choices and whichever they select will be acceptable to you. With stubborn kids it is particularly effective. When you give them a choice to make, taking a stand and saying, “no way” just isn’t one of their available choices. So instead of telling her to take out the garbage, you offer a choice. “The garbage needs to be put out. Do you want to do it now or after dinner?” Involve her in making decisions. Ask her opinion so she can feel some ownership of the plan. Soccer season is coming up so ask her what she thinks might be the best way to organize all the soccer gear. Stubborn kids (oops, persistent) are often adamant about what is right and what is wrong and once they have taken a stand they will not budge. Their world is black or white, right or wrong,
fair or unfair. There is no middle way. Getting into an argument with them is simply a waste of time and energy. Instead, listen carefully, ask them why they believe what they do and accept their explanations respectfully. Then you can tell them what you believe and why. So you will agree to disagree. However, this is where you need to use a “however” statement. “I know you believe that kids should not need to do homework, however it is your reality and you need to get to it.” Family rules are very important with these kids. The clearer the rules, the less space there is for argument. Keep the rules simple and post them in a public space in the house. When the boundaries are clear and she knows exactly what is expected of her she’ll be less likely to question daily expectations. In the same way, precise routines are a good idea. You can let her help with the decisions about the routines and present some choices. But once that has happened, expect that she will follow the family expectations. When the expectations See Be Clear page 22

are a habit, you get fewer arguments. When you ask her to do something make it abundantly clear. When we use phrases such as, “Why don’t you…” “Would you like to…” or “Don’t you think it’s time to…” you are asking for an argument. Instead, say, “It’s now time to get ready for bed. Please get your pyjamas on now.” When you have a persistent child, likely one of her parents is the same way. One set of grandparents is quietly smiling to themselves watching their son or daughter have to deal with the same stubborn behaviours they handled when their child was young. If that’s the case, talk to the grandparents about their experiences raising a stubborn child. They may have some great tips for you or at the very least the reassurance that the child (who may be you) turned out just ﬁne.

Fran Ashdown Contributing Writer
FEBRUARY is Black History Month and has been proclaimed as such by both the City and District of North Vancouver.
Canada Post has even issued a stamp featuring Joe Fortes, the black lifeguard at English Bay who has been credited with saving many lives and teaching hundreds of children to swim. On the North Shore, Harry Jerome is remembered for his amazing athletic feats. Two picture books that deal with black history and culture are Unspoken and The Granddaughter Necklace. Henry Cole, author of Unspoken, says in a note at
the back of his book that he wanted to create a book that was evocative of the Civil War era because he lives in an area where some skirmishes occurred. He also wanted to make the book a wordless one because of the unspoken communication that occurs between the two main characters. These characters are a little girl who lives on a farm which indicates its sympathy to slaves by hanging a freedom quilt over the fence and a slave attempting to escape northward to freedom. Graphite illustrations on a cream background chronicle the action and follow the girl as she secretly feeds a
runaway she discovers hiding in the barn. It is clear she is well aware of the dangers of helping — at the beginning of the story she cuddles her cat anxiously as she gazes at a passing group of Confederate soldiers and later she peers out from a hiding place at the bounty hunters who are showing the family a poster offering a reward for the capture of an escaped slave. The slave manages to evade the hunters leaving behind a corn husk doll as a thank you. The reader can hope that the girl’s brave actions have helped him on his way to freedom. This is a powerful tale of compassion and strength of character and is all the more effective for being told visually. The Granddaughter Necklace is a tale of family history focussing on a necklace that is passed down from mother to daughter through many generations. The author explains in her notes that she has been collecting family stories since childhood and that she has traced her See Family page 24

Family ties paramount From page 22 ancestry through DNA testing to Cameroon. The book begins with the author’s Irish ancestor, Frances, who came to the U.S. around 1861. Each time the necklace is passed along the story moves back a generation with a similar phrase explaining the chain of relationships. The occasions on which the necklace is bestowed vary. The necklace is a birthday gift in one generation or a treasure to ease the pain of leaving family in another. The stories of each mother as a child are diverse and fascinating. The
illustrations are beautiful and evoke the warm relationships between mother and daughter. In particular, the double-page painting of Frances standing at a ship’s railing at sunset is absolutely gorgeous. This is a book to share with your daughter along with your own family history. Fran Ashdown worked for many years as a children’s librarian at the North Vancouver District Library. She is especially interested in the history of freedom quilts because her mother was a wonderful quilter. For more information check your North Shore libraries.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to EXCEPTIONAL CUISINE
Burritos are easy to make Diners delight in Comox
Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard
MEXICAN food is a North American favourite, and it’s no wonder.
The ﬂavours are spicy and warming, and kids love it because there’s usually good stuff like cheese, salsa and ground beef in there somewhere. Here’s a Mexican meal that’s quick enough to prepare on-the-ﬂy for a midweek dinner (the dessert needs a bit of time to chill so make it before you start preparing the rest of the meal). Most of the ingredients are pantry staples or easy to ﬁnd during a 15-minute blitz of the supermarket. Enjoy your miniﬁesta. Buen provecho!
I love a road trip.
Beef & Salsa Burritos 1 pound lean ground beef 1 Tbsp chili powder ½ tsp ground cumin 1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry 1 cup chunky salsa 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese Salt and freshly ground black pepper 6 medium ﬂour tortillas ½ cup sour cream
NEWS photo Mike Wakeﬁeld
BURRITOS are a popular dish that features beef, veggies and salsa wrapped in a tortilla and drizzled with cheese.
In a large nonstick skillet, brown the ground beef over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until there isn’t any pink, stirring occasionally. Pour off the fat. Add the chili powder and cumin; stir in the salsa and spinach and heat through. Remove from heat and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Stir in the cheese. Warm the tortillas (one at a time as you assemble burritos) for 10 to 15 seconds in the microwave until pliable. Spoon one-half cup of the beef mixture into the centre of each tortilla. Spoon a little sour cream over top of the beef. Fold the bottom edge of the tortilla up over the ﬁlling, then fold the sides into the centre, overlapping the edges to
enclose ﬁlling snugly. Makes six burritos.

Even in winter, there’s nothing like ﬁlling up the tank, sailing across the Strait of Georgia, and hitting the open road for parts lesser known. But as kilometres of Inland Island Highway rolled away under my tires on the weekend, I couldn’t help wondering what I would ﬁnd in the Comox Valley. February isn’t the best time of year to visit farm country, never mind eat the fruits of all that labour. It’s still winter after all . . . so there is no fruit. Yet there I was, headed to Courtenay and Comox to preview the month-long promotion, Dine Around the Comox Valley, which “celebrates local bounty” and runs from today until March 17. As it turns out, there’s plenty to enjoy in this valley at any time of the year. The wide coastal plain has a long growing season, is laced with rivers and protected by the Beaufort Mountains. And, of course, you can’t forget its access to seafood — the city of Courtenay embraces the Courtenay River Estuary, while the town of Comox practically spills into the strait. No wonder the local First Nations called the area

‘Land of plenty’ has a lot to offer this winter From page 25
“Komoux,” or “Land of Plenty.” This is the fourth year for Dine Around, and this year 22 Comox Valley restaurants will partake in the annual event by creating three-course prix ﬁxe meals, each available to diners for $17, $27 or $37. For our preview, we did it differently: four courses at four different restaurants, beginning at Avenue Bistro in Comox. Executive chef Aaron Rail moved to the valley from Victoria ﬁve years ago because he liked the ratio of good ingredients to eateries. “There are more than 400 farms and just a couple dozen restaurants,” he said. It provides quite a palette for a chef to work with, even at this time of year. “This is the best time of year for local oysters, crab, shrimp. We have local chicken and pork . . . there’s venison, beef, bison; and we can get sprouts, microgreens, and nuts. . . .” The list of winter ingredients is surprisingly long. We started with fresh-shucked Comox oysters; one house-smoked and drizzled with maple vinegar, the other served simply with the house mignonette. A silky parsnip-apple soup was spiked with crispy fried onions and drizzled with a hint of trufﬂe oil, and “Winter’s Last Kiss” salad was a refreshing mix of frisée and citrus fruits, with a sweet touch of local yogurt.
Each course was paired with wines from B.C., including a light Gewurztraminer from the valley alongside the salad. At Locals Restaurant (where the entire concept is based on ingredients from the surrounding valley) we sampled more starters, including an elegant salad of organic spinach stacked with microgreens, hot chili-roasted pecans, blood orange and sherry vinaigrette. A chicken and vegetable roll was a standout, full of fresh ﬂavours thanks to ginger, garlic and Asian ﬁve spice in a rice paper wrapper. We moved on to main courses at Martine’s Bistro, including a hearty cassoulet made with duck conﬁt and braised pork belly; a tender bacon-wrapped ﬁlet mignon; sesame-crusted tuna; and chicken curry fettucine. We ﬁnished with dessert at The Prime Chophouse and Wine Bar in Courtenay, a duo that included crème brulée and a luscious bread pudding. A Dine Around trip can be rounded out with a visit to one of Canada’s only whiskey distilleries, Shelter Point Distillery, or a local winery; and with several hotels and bed and breakfasts offering special accommodation rates, Dine Around the Comox Valley makes a great excuse for a getaway.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to THE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY
Big guns galore as Pack begins playoffs Andy Prest email@example.com
THERE’LL be a lot of ﬁrepower on the ice when the North Van Wolf Pack takes on the Delta Ice Hawks in their opening round series in the Paciﬁc Junior Hockey League playoffs starting this week.
how far the Blues go at this weekend’s provincial championship tournament which starts tomorrow at the College of the Rockies in Cranbrook. “That’s just cool, right?” men’s coach Nathan Bennett said of seeing the same last name on top of the stats page in the two different leagues. “You can’t script that stuff.” Women’s head coach Cal Wohlford
The Pack ﬁnished third in the league’s Tom Shaw conference this season, earning a best-of-seven date with the second-place Ice Hawks. The action started last night in Delta following North Shore News deadline and will now come to North Van for Games 2 and 3 this Friday and Saturday at Harry Jerome Arena. The series features a battle between two of the top lines in the entire league. The Ice Hawks feature a top unit that includes Mak Barden, the league leader in points with 72 in 44 games, along with Aaron Merrick and Anthony Brito who ﬁnished ﬁrst and second in the league in goals scored. “Merrick can shoot the puck, he can hurt you,” said North Van head coach Matt Samson while sizing up the Delta roster before the series began. “Brito is a big body, goes to the net, can shoot the puck hard. And then you’ve got Barden who’s just really fast, sets up guys and he can bury it too. You’re looking at three of the most dangerous guys in the league up front, no question.” The Pack will counter with their own power trio that includes Spencer Quon, Marcus Houck and Quin Buckellew who all ended the season ranked top-10 in the league in points. Quon’s total of 65 points in 43 games set a new club record and placed him behind only Barden in the league. “We counter with three of the top guys in the league as well,” said Samson. “It’s a good matchup for sure.” The teams met six times in the regular season with Delta scoring four wins, including a 6-1 victory at Harry Jerome Arena to end the regular season Saturday. That game, however, meant nothing in the standings and the Wolf Pack held out several of their top players. Samson said the Wolf Pack will basically forget all of their regular season results

Caverly siblings lead with D as Cap heads to B.C. ﬁnals Andy Prest firstname.lastname@example.org
TWINS Jacqueline and Dan Caverly inherited a love of volleyball from their parents, both of whom were avid players and coaches. They also inherited one other trait that has helped them become two of the best defensive volleyball players in the province. It’s not something you would normally equate with volleyball stardom. “My parents are both smaller, my dad is ﬁve-nine and my mom is ﬁve-three,” says Jacqueline. “Dan and I, throughout our high school and club careers, we were always the smaller kids. He managed to grow a bit at the end but we were always the smaller kids so we had to get by on playing defence. I think it’s showing now.” It certainly is showing. The two Coquitlam natives are now wrapping up their fourth years at Capilano University and are sharing an interesting distinction — both are No. 1 in their leagues in digs. Jacqueline is ahead by a long shot, her 424 digs topping the next highest total
by 99 heading into the ﬁnal matches of the regular season last weekend. Dan isn’t quite as dominant with his 259 total digs but at 3.24 per game he’s the only male player to average more than three per game. “She’s always going to beat me,” says Dan. “Their rallies are longer — that’s my excuse.” Sibling stat comparing aside, the twins are both key players for their teams and will both play huge parts in deciding

heading into the fresh start of the postseason. “You kind of throw everything out the window,” he said. “We know what we’re going to get when we face these guys and I think I know from our group what we’re going to give. We’ve deﬁnitely been one of the hottest teams down the stretch so I think we’re playing good hockey at the right time. I really think it’s going to be a good series.” The Pack won nine of their last 11 games to jump over the North Delta Devils to ﬁnish in third place. Their only two losses in that stretch, however, were to the Ice Hawks. “They’re a skilled team,” said Samson. “I think we have a little more depth up front with our forward group. At the back end they’ve got a pretty good goalie and defence group. They’re deﬁnitely a top team, they won 30 games for a reason. They’re a physical team, they’ve got some big bodies — but we can play that physical game as well. We’re looking forward to the challenge, we’ve just got to keep things simple, match them physically, move our feet and make sure we’re aware when those dangerous guys are out there because they’re a threat every time they’re on the ice for sure.” Games 2 and 3 of the series will take place Friday at 6:45 p.m. and Saturday at 7 p.m. at Harry Jerome. If necessary, the teams will return to North Vancouver for Game 6 Saturday, March 2 at 7 p.m. “In a perfect world we’d have a chance to close out at home in Game 6,” said Samson, adding that he’s hoping North Shore hockey fans will come have a look as the Wolf Pack tries to advance past the ﬁrst round for the ﬁrst time in franchise history. “We really feed off of a good crowd so if people have been wanting or waiting to come to a game and see what it’s about there’s no better time than a playoff game.”

Capilano teams competing for trip to nationals agrees. “Both of them lead out there with their playing abilities,” he says. “Both Jackie and Dan are excellent at reading defensive plays and picking up the ball. Both cover the court extremely well.” While their stats are similar their roles are actually quite different. Dan eventually got a growth spurt that pushed him to six feet and allowed him to play power hitter. Jacqueline, meanwhile, stayed at ﬁve-foot-three so she plays libero, the defensive specialist position. Without any duties at the net, Jacqueline focuses solely on defence and coach Wohlford says their system is set up to give her all that she can handle. “We force hitters to hit the ball to her and let her dig it up,” he says. “It’s tough to beat her. A lot of teams now are starting to hit away from her. . . . She covers court very well but most important is her passion. She loves to win. She’s a competitor through and through and she just loves to win.” Jacqueline says she loves to see big hitters winding up. “Sometimes you know you’re in the perfect spot and you know it’s coming right at you,” she says. “That’s when all the volleyball players think, ‘Yes!’” Dan’s got the same desire to have volleyballs blasted at him. “I just want it so bad,” he says, adding that he doesn’t think that every player out there has that same love. “I deﬁnitely get frustrated when they hit at someone else and they don’t dig it.”
Dan isn’t the focus of the team’s defence but he still leads a strong defensive crew that has three players — the other two are Alex Pappas and Ben Ricketts — in the top ﬁve in the league in digs per game average. “Dan’s calm, he’s able to react quick and he understands the game,” says Bennett. “There’s nine metres by nine metres on your side but there’s a hell of a lot of room up top and that’s where he likes to dig the ball and that helps us immensely. Often people panic, and as soon as you panic you tense up and then the ball will go into the stands or off to the side. But Dan’s really calm and collected, he does a good job on that.” Dan also has become a fearsome hitter in the Pacwest league, his 4.01 kills per game average ranking him second in the province. Bennett calls him the best back-row attacker in the league. In the ﬁnal game of the regular season on Saturday the Blues upset the Douglas College Royals, the No. 1-ranked team in Canada, and Dan played a large role, blasting backrow spikes and coming up with a huge solo block in the dying moments of the match to secure a tough ﬁve-set win. Even with that offensive and defensive showing, coach Bennett said he still
thinks Dan could reach another gear as the Blues gun for a berth in the national championships this weekend. “I think everybody thinks they’ve seen all he can give but I’ve seen him now for a full season and there’s more in the tank from Dan and I’m hoping at provincials we’re able to see the real Dan Caverly.” The men, seeded fourth, face the ﬁfth-seeded host COTR team in the quarterﬁnals Thursday and a win in that match would set up a semiﬁnal on Friday against Douglas with a berth in the provincial ﬁnal on the line. The game against Douglas would also be for a trip to the national championships as the Pacwest league has been awarded two berths to nationals, meaning both provincial ﬁnalists will go to the big show. On the women’s side the Blues are also hunting for one of two national championship berths. They are also seeded fourth and will take on Camosun College in the opening round. A win against Camosun Thursday would set up a semiﬁnal showdown against the University of the Fraser Valley, the No. 1-ranked team in Canada. To follow the action visit pacwestbc.ca/volleyball2013/.

Stem Cell Activator
Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to #63 create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage.

1929 - 2013 It is with sadness and shock that we announce the sudden passing of our father often referred to as Ted. Dad was a very fit 84 year old man who loved walking his dog Luke on many North Vancouver streets and trails. Dad was born in Wales and grew up in a quaint character filled town called Monmouth. He served in the British Army and was trained as a Medic. After Military Service he worked as an Orderly at St. Lawrence Hospital in Chepstow where he met his beloved wife Doris. They married in 1952 and later immigrated to Canada in 1953. Dad moved to Vancouver after reading a book by the great Cricketer Sir Donald Bradman who wrote, “Brocton Oval is the most beautiful Cricket Ground in the world!” Dad worked on IDH4 at VGH Hospital and was also an avid Cricketer. He enjoyed serving as a President of the Vancouver Mainland Cricket league. He also trained as a Professional Watchmaker and repaired many clocks and watches in the Vancouver region and surrounding areas. In his later years Dad enjoyed William Griffin Swimming Pool and socializing with the many people who frequented the facility. He was predeceased by his wife and is fondly remembered by his son Gwyn (June) and grandson Owen, and daughters Dorothy and Katherine. We would like to thank the staff of Lions Gate Hospital for the care they showed Dad during his brief stay there. When Dad passed he was in his garden walking his dog so he was in the midst of doing what he enjoyed. Thank you to all his friends and family for their care and support during this time. By request Dad will be cremated and his ashes will be spread by a gathering of family and friends at a later date.

Fabulous Fibre – Part 2
It’s not just for adults anymore. A child’s intake of dietary fibre averages about 50% less than recommended. Children 1-2 years old need 19 grams of daily fibre, ages 4-8 - 25 gms, 9-13 year old boys require 31 gms and girls, 26. There are two types of fibre, soluble (oat bran, beans, legumes) and insoluble (whole grains, skins of fruit and veggies, bran, crushed flax seeds), and both are needed to maintain a healthy diet. Foods rich in fibre: • Pears win the fruit fibre contest with 6 gms each. Berries, apples, oranges and mangoes are runners up. • Frozen green peas contain 14 gms of fibre per cup. • Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower have 5 gms per cup. • Beans are the king of fibrous foods with 6-9 gms per 1/2 cup. • Edamame, boiled – 8.1 gms per cup, dry roasted – 30.4 gms per cup. • Quinoa - loaded with nutrients and 5 gms of fibre per cup. • Bran from corn, wheat, rice or oats. • Whole grain cereal – 5 gms per 1/2 cup. • Sunflower kernels, flax or sesame seeds – 2.73.9 gms of fiber per 28 gm serving.
