Handsworth, Windsor to get seismic upgrade Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

THE province is looking to add some stability to two North Vancouver schools or, more precisely, make them a lot more stable in the event of an earthquake. Two North Vancouver secondary schools, Windsor and Handsworth, were on a list of 45 schools that will share $584 million for seismic upgrades, Premier Christy Clark announced in Vancouver on Monday as the final days before the election writ drops ticked down. The announcement, while welcomed, caught the North Vancouver School Board off guard. “We were hoping because every year we submit a capital plan per the ministry’s requirements and we’re pleased that two of ours schools made it onto that (list),” said board chairwoman Franci Stratton. The province doesn’t specify how much funding will go to each of the projects, however partial upgrades, like those needed at Windsor, are typically fully covered by the Ministry of Education, Stratton said. Handsworth, might be a little too far gone to justify seismic improvements when a fullscale replacement should also be considered as an option. “We need to do a little bit further work to say, ‘Is it feasible to spend X amount of dollars on a seismic upgrade or are there some things we can do to upgrade back to a full school See Argyle page 5

City council ends duplex suite ban

Brent Richter

brichter@nsnews.com

DUPLEX owners in the City of North Vancouver will soon be allowed to build secondary suites, turning every duplex into a potential four-plex. Council voted Monday night to allow secondary suites in duplexes after acknowledging there are least 100 already known in city, and there is no way to bring them up to safety code if city bylaws ban them outright. The city has had a moratorium on enforcing illegal suite bylaws on the city’s 900-plus duplexes while it tries to sort out a path forward. In order for the secondary suites to be legal, they must meet

Split council prefers legalization to eviction of illegal suite tenants

a number of specific building and design requirements, including additional on-site parking, firewalls separating units or a sprinkler system in the building. The city faced a similar conundrum in the late 1980s when it became apparent the city was rife with illegal suites built into singlefamily homes. Council ultimately decided to take the legalization route in 1991. Monday’s debate about whether the city should permit the duplex mortgage helpers initially centred around how it would affect the people living in the already existing suites.

“The fact of the matter is people are living there and if the city wants to go down the road of saying ‘Let’s start evicting people,’ I think we’re going to have revolution on our hands — and well so, because this provides all sorts of good, decent housing,” said Coun. Craig Keating. Taking a baby-step in the direction of full legalization was preferable to putting people out on the street to punish their landlords, Coun. Rod Clark added, comparing the situation to when he spoke with people facing eviction if the city started enforcing the bylaw on single-family homes in the early ’90s. “People were very desperate. They were desperate to keep accommodation, which they had for some time, which was affordable to them, which they had come to enjoy and get to know See Suites page 3

City closes Onni deal with $1M land sale Clark snipes at Bell before 4-3 vote in favour

Brent Richter

brichter@nsnews.com

THE long and, at times, rough public process for the Onni Safeway site development has come to a definitive end. The Onni towers got their fourth and final reading from council before just a handful of council watchers in the City of North Vancouver gallery Monday night, a stark contrast to the overflow crowds that came out to the two public hearings held in March and November last year. Onni has been on track for approval since a second pubic hearing was held in March for the 344 units of housing in 24-storey and 18storey towers, along with an eight-storey office tower and 40,000 square feet of commercial space. Council narrowly voted in favour of the

development at the end of the hearing. In keeping with the contentious public process that dogged the project, the final approval came with one last political provocation at the council table. “1308 Lonsdale keeps getting curiouser and curiouser. First we had a hijacked public meeting, then we had a hijacked public hearing and now, one of the members of council has taken it upon themselves to negotiate with the developer. In my 15 years on council, I have never seen such a thing,” said Coun. Rod Clark, referring to Coun. Don Bell. In November, Bell was one of the councillors who voted to force Onni into a second pubic hearing. Between the public hearings, Onni altered the design to incorporate a number of changes suggested by Bell that were meant to address some of the most frequent criticisms of the project. Among the changes: increasing the setbacks from 14th Street, Stella Jo Dean Plaza and the Grande condo building, opening a laneway through the building, shifting storefronts to 13th Street as well as moving all the traffic ingress and egress to 13th Street. “I would suggest the council member who

negotiated with the developer leaves all of us, by some area of association, open to charges of collusion,” Clark continued. “All of the flipflopping is a sight to behold. The only sweet irony left is the developer can name the project the Bell Centre.” But, Bell said, there was nothing inconsistent in his voting record and talking with developers as well as residents is “all in a day’s work” for a good councillor trying to do right by his community. “I’m not surprised. That’s the sort of confrontive or aggressive attitude (Clark) has displayed in the past on different things. What I was doing was what I considered to be the work of a councillor,” Bell told the North Shore News Tuesday. “I was doing what I think a responsible councillor should be doing and that is listening to the people and trying to address the issues I’ve heard raised.” The vote split council along the same lines as the original approval after the second public hearing, with Couns. Guy Heywood, Pam Bookham and Clark voting against. The vote was followed by one last piece of housekeeping so that the developer can begin

finalizing its designs and apply for building permits: the sale of two strips of city-owned laneway land on the site to Onni. Council agreed to sell the land in January 2011, pending a successful rezoning of the property. Onni will pay the city $1,040,000 for 2,500 square feet of laneway needed to complete the project, which a city staff report notes is a good value for the land. The money will go to the city’s civic amenity fund, which council can use to fund future amenities including the Harry Jerome Recreation Centre, Lot 5 in Shipbuilders’ Square, the North Vancouver Museum and Archives, or Presentation House Gallery. In exchange for allowing Onni to build the residential towers above its official community plan limit and at almost double the density called for in the area, the developer is including 10,000 square feet of non-profit housing (approximately 12 units), childcare space, a separate $1-million contribution to the city’s amenity fund, a connection to the Lonsdale Energy Corporation, infrastructure upgrades to the surrounding streets and utilities, $250,000 in public art, and green building standards.

their neighbours and become part of the community, and they were threatened. Even now, I think that’s the case,” he said. The motion carried 4-3 with Couns. Don Bell, Pam Bookham and Guy Heywood opposed. Bookham urged council to agree to an amendment that would end the moratorium on enforcement and direct staff to begin inspecting the known illegal suites for minimum life and safety standards. “If they are not inspected, people can be living in situations where electrical fires can happen, where sewage can back up, where mould can grow, where there’s little light, simply because they are poor,” she said. But the mayor defended the existing practice of enforcing bylaws on a complaint basis, citing the gargantuan task of sending staff to inspect every secondary suite in the city. “We don’t need suite police in the City of North Vancouver,” Darrell Mussatto said. “I think 90 per cent of the suites in single-family homes have not been inspected. If we’re going to start somewhere, I think we should start there and then we would open the flood gates to huge challenges for housing in our city, and I don’t think that’s the way we need to go.” Bookham’s motion failed to pass, which Bookham called astounding. “To suggest that the amount of work it would entail would be too onerous, I think, is really a question of priorities,” she said. “The idea is not to put people out of their homes but to ensure they are safe. Children should not grow up in mouldy apartments, children should not be growing up where there’s a risk of an electrical fire because somebody went on the Internet and thought he could be an electrician and wired a suite.”

Liberals top donations list with $10M

NDP pull in $7M much of it in individual donations Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

POLITICAL players on the North Shore were among those whose donations of cash helped bolster the coffers of both B.C. Liberal and NDP parties last year.

Elections B.C. recently released lists of those who contributed money to political parties in 2012. The lists showed both major parties received significant sums in political donations in advance of this year’s general election. The B.C. Liberal party received donations of more than $10 million in 2012. Of that, $5 million

came from corporate donors, $3 million came from individuals and roughly $760,000 came from other business organizations. The B.C. NDP pulled in $7 million in political donations last year. Most of that — $2.3 million — was from individuals, while $1.6 million was from trade unions. Corporations also donated almost $1 million to the NDP last year. On the North Shore, waterfront industries were significant political players. The B.C. Maritime Employers Association, which covers terminal operators and businesses, donated $108,000 last year to the political parties. All but about $8,000 of that went to the B.C. Liberals. Seaspan Marine also made $31,000 in political contributions. More than $20,000 went to the B.C. Liberals. About $10,500 went to the NDP. Neptune Terminals coughed up $19,000 for political parties. Of that, $13,000 went to the Liberals and $6,000 went to the NDP. Fibreco donated

$8,000 — most of that to the Liberals. Nexen donated $7,700 — half to the Liberals and half to the NDP. Western Stevedoring and Allied Shipbuilders also donated $1,000 each to the Liberals. On the other side of the political ledger, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union donated $13,000 to the NDP. The Shipyard General Workers Federation donated $600 to the NDP, as did its president George MacPherson, who donated $350. Other companies on the North Shore also made political donations. Grouse Mountain Resorts donated $17,300 to the Liberals. Rocky Mountain Railtours and its affiliated company Great Canadian Railtours also donated a $6,500 to the B.C. Liberals. Real estate companies also waded into politics. Onni Property Management donated $13,000 to the Liberals as did Park Royal Shopping Centre, which donated $3,350.

Police find loaded gun in speeding, uninsured car Jane Seyd

jseyd@nsnews.com

A man who was stopped by police in West Vancouver with a loaded, cocked handgun in his car has been given six months of house arrest in addition to the six months he already spent in custody. Judge Doug Moss handed the sentence to Shane Takeshi Gyoba, 26, after Gyoba pleaded guilty recently to two weapons charges plus one charge of resisting arrest in North Vancouver provincial court. Gyoba was pulled over on Highway 1 at around 11 p.m. on Sept. 24 last year, after blowing past a marked police car at high speed in an uninsured Toyota Celica. When police pulled Gyoba over, officers reported he seemed tense, had dilated pupils and told police he had special authorization to break traffic laws. He also told officers, “Don’t make me do a bad thing.” Police asked Gyoba to get out of the car, eventually having to handcuff him to prevent him from getting back into the vehicle.

When they looked into the car, officers found a loaded Colt 10 mm pistol on a centre console next to the driver’s seat. A spare magazine with nine rounds of ammunition was stashed in a compartment above the stereo. A four-inch buck knife was hidden in a MacDonald’s bag on the floor of the car. Police also found an empty plastic gun case and a piece of ballistics body armor wrapped in a grey hoodie behind the rear seat. A subsequent check showed Gyoba did have a valid licence for the gun, but was only allowed to transport it between his home and a shooting range, and only if it was unloaded and locked. In an earlier bail hearing, Gyoba’s lawyer told police he had driven to West Vancouver via the Duffy Lake Road and had the gun out because he was concerned about a wounded bear in the area. He added he used the body armor for jogging. The judge didn’t buy it, though, saying his explanation didn’t make sense, and refused to grant him bail. Gyoba remained in jail until his sentencing. Gyoba’s previous record includes a conviction for assault, hunting out of season, and driving while disqualified.

rebuild?’ Those are discussions that have to happen between us and the ministry over the next little while,” she said. Argyle secondary was earmarked for seismic funding or a full rebuild in an announcement made in May 2012. The school district is just now ironing out the details for what the project will entail. “These are wins for us, every time that we can get an announcement so that we can make our buildings more safe for both staff and students,” Stratton said.

Decades of Successful Experience

The province has been working to bring 213 high-risk schools up to new earthquake standards since 2001. This latest batch of projects brings the province to the two-thirds mark. “This investment means parents sending their kids to 45 more high-risk schools know they will be able to withstand a major earthquake,” Clark said in a press release. Under the province’s timeline, Windsor’s work will be done in the 2013-2014 year while Handsworth will be addressed in 2015-2016. Scan this page with Layar for video footage.

The Iron Lady M

ARGARET Thatcher died of a stroke Monday at age 87 and UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s praise — “a great leader, a great prime minister and a great Briton” — was both accurate and deserved. Yet Cameron’s Conservative Party leadership, constrained by the necessity of the Liberal Democrats, suffers in comparison. He may be able to turn a page, but it’s unlikely the majority of his party will ever forget the Iron Lady — or the three successive majorities the party enjoyed under her leadership. The daughter of a grocer, Thatcher’s middle-class heritage was not that different to Ted Heath’s or John Major’s. But she held to her smaller government, free-market principles more fiercely than a wolverine, demonstrating indomitable strength

in the face of the virulent opposition of the British labour movement. FormanyBrits,Thatcherexacerbated the divide between the haves and the have-nots while the country rolled in North Sea oil money. But her 11 years of power saw an unprecedented revival of entrepreneurial spirit. Arguably she facilitated the resurgence of the Labour Party by taking her own party so far to the right she left room in the centre. And indeed it was her own party that finally pushed her out, not the electors — as much for her style as for her continued antipathy to the European Union. She did indeed polarize her country, but for a brief period in 1982 she stood for all who remembered “Great” Britain as a world power when she sought and achieved a military victory in the Falklands War.

Retain the heritage of Keith Lynn schoolhouse

Dear Editor: As you reported on March 17, North Vancouver school district plans to sell its Keith Lynn school site to North Shore Studios for development (North Shore Studios Keen to Take Over Keith Lynn Site). It is disappointing that the school district made this selection without any public consultation, when there was a competing proposal to restore the building for continued use as a school. The school district says it will consult the public only on its selected proposal. The1914KeithLynnschoolbuildingisaheritagesite,recognized in the District of North Vancouver’s heritage inventory. Although

not of the same architectural splendour as North Vancouver’s Ridgeway and Queen Mary elementary schools, it is a rare surviving example of an early schoolhouse in North Vancouver. We appreciate that demolition of the heritage building and development of the site would bring the school district more revenue in the near term, but we also believe that this would be controversial. Many in our community are tired of seeing heritage buildings demolished and school sites sold off — especially in an area of high-density development such as this. While others in the community may focus on issues of development, density, traffic and long-term educational services, our group’s mandate is simply to preserve heritage buildings. We

would prefer that heritage school buildings retain their original use, but we do support proposals that incorporate heritage buildings within developments. There are plenty of examples of this approach in North Vancouver: the townhouse developments along East Keith, the Green-Armytage building on West 23rd and Mollie Nye House in Lynn Valley, to name a few. Such efforts can bring neglected, run-down buildings back to life, and provide an asset for the community. We firmly believe that any proposal for the Keith Lynn site should retain and incorporate the heritage school building. Peter Miller, president, North Shore Heritage Preservation Society

The future of the North Shore is a life-and-death struggle

Dear Editor: Profit-crazed property developers, with either the complacency or complicity of the North Shore’s mayors and councils, are destroying the traditional culture and time-honoured way of life of the North Shore and its once iconic character. Two different world views are in a life and death struggle. One only has to observe the rapid and dramatic, if not radical, changes that have already happened or are planned along every major traffic corridor in North and West Vancouver: Lonsdale Avenue, Marine Drive, Harbourside, Park Royal, Ambleside, British Properties/Upper Lands, Capilano Road, Lynn Valley, Seylynn and Maplewood. These sweeping changes are far beyond whatever alternative direction or control the majority of local citizenry would desire

to exercise or profess. Unique Mom & Pop enterprises are finding it progressively harder to survive ever-increasing rents and/or are being intentionally pushed out by developers who prefer to cater only to those big box/brand name/mega-corporations who can afford their exorbitant leases. Onetime single-family communities are also being radically transformed. In some communities, speculating developers quietly approach home owners and offer to buy their homes for more than their market value if they will agree to sign confidential agreements to sell whenever it suits the speculator-developer’s larger plans. In the process, the North Shore is gradually morphing into the same bland concrete, glass and steel look of every other strip

mall/traffic corridor/central business district/high-density/ highrise area in the world, occupied by the same string of fast food chains, doctor/dentist/veterinarian offices, banks, credit unions and mega-corporate commercial enterprises. What once made the North Shore iconic: the architecturally individualistic storefronts, human scaled Mom & Pop enterprises, urban forested rustic neighbourhoods are all already gone or going fast. Some will no doubt call this the price of so-called progress, while others shudder at the thought of where this will ultimately lead and what kind of North Shore will be left to those who come after us.

Kids should be the priority “British Columbia hospitals need to [provide] in-patient emergency health services for children in crisis when they are self-harming, harming their family, are suicidal or in other forms of distress. At the moment, hospitals are sending away families and children . . . who are having crisis mental health episodes.” — Kelly Bradley

IN the hope of saving the lives of some young people who experience a severe mental crisis, Victoria residents Kelly and Owen Bradley delivered a 36,721name petition to B.C. Minister of Health, Margaret MacDiarmid. Senior staffers from the Ministry of Children and Family Development were also on hand to receive the delegation on April 2nd. Encouraged by the minister’s reaction and her promise to review emergency services, the Bradleys hope the petition will have garnered 50,000 supporters by month-end. The parents began their action because their 11year-old daughter had twice been turned away from the emergency department at Victoria General Hospital while she was undergoing severe effects of the bipolar

Just Asking

Elizabeth James mood disorder from which she suffers. Not all petitioning families will be dealing with the same disorders, but the Bradleys believe parents should be contacted before a child or youth is refused access to emergency care and evaluation by a suitably qualified physician. “Firstly, we [want] a psychiatrist involved in the decision-making when a child or youth in mental crisis shows up in the ER of B.C. hospitals,” they explained. Acknowledging MacDiarmid’s point that some hospitals are so small they lack immediate access to specialists, the Bradley’s responded: “Whether done in person, by telephone, or by video conference, it needs to be done.” Flaws in health-care delivery seldom arise in isolation and many stories must be told before we can understand where this one

fits in the overall picture. Seemingly disconnected one from the others, if we follow the threads of each story to its roots we find they share one important characteristic: our inability to ensure scarce tax dollars are effectively deployed to prevent or mitigate the problems. There are school boards that, starved for resources to support early interventions for youngsters diagnosed with dyslexia, still choose development proposals over daycare spaces. We hear the March 19 news of stabbings by 14and 15-year-old girls who, severely affected by parental alcoholism, somehow manage to escape their Burnaby group home to rack up 142 run-ins with police over 16 months — some of which related to their own under-age drinking. That disturbing reality adds a sad exclamation mark to the March 26 report, Much More than Paperwork: Proper Planning Essential to Better Lives for B.C.’s Children in Care by Mary Ellen TurpelLafond, B.C.’S Representative for Children and Youth. These stories are testament to the fact that although we elect governments that spend billions on education, health care and social services, we still can’t seem to get our priorities straight, even for kids who are not in government care. Is it that we have abdicated

our own responsibility to participate in setting those priorities? If so, is that just one more manifestation of what I call the “speed-bump syndrome”? In other words, are we all too busy keeping our own lives on track that we don’t notice or care until the speedbump arrives at the end of our own driveway? Whatever the cause of our skewed priorities, one thing is certain: If, as a society, we don’t take charge of our governments and become active in finding solutions, the debt-loads and other consequences will hang as millstones around the necks of future generations. Is that what we want for our kids? In more than one report, Turpel-Lafond has pointed to specific, sometimes heartbreaking examples of young tragedies. She has also made dozens of expert recommendations, many of which remain unaddressed and most of which are aimed at the administration of the Ministry of Children and Family Development or Community Living B.C. Auditor General John Doyle has done likewise. The Representative observed that only five per cent of the care plans she had audited “met the ministry’s

Housing likely for Ridgeway Annex

North Vancouver school board prefers Anthem Properties proposals Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

NEIGHBOURS of the retired Ridgeway Annex school could soon be getting an idea of exactly what developer Anthem Properties has in mind for the site since being named the preferred candidate to buy it from the North Vancouver school board. The developer beat out other bids from Darwin Properties, Atti Group and Kidsland Childcare Centre to take over the property on East Fifth Street at Ridgeway Avenue last month. In their presentation to the school board last fall, Anthem representatives pitched four potential development options that would have between 24 and 60 units of housing depending how densely they are arranged. The actual development proposal won’t be decided on until the company has done more consultation with the public, according to Alexa Baughen, Anthem’s vice-president of communications. “Speaking with our development team, the clear message I got was that we’re going to start the process soon and the next steps would be to engage both the city and the

community and get everybody’s wish list and try to accommodate everyone’s requirements. That’s what we’d typically do in any of our developments,” Baughen, said. The developer will also have to go through the typical rezoning and development permit process with the City of North Vancouver before construction can begin. “We have to do a lot more homework before we get to there, that’s for sure,” Baughen added. The details of what made Anthem’s bid stand out from the others are not public yet, but the board is keeping in mind the community’s priorities as well as school district’s, said school board chairwoman Franci Stratton. “We were just more comfortable with the Anthem proposal the way it came to the board. It just seemed to meet more of goals that the board was looking at in terms of the criteria that we had to work with,” Stratton said. “We felt this realized the maximum social and financial benefit for that site.” Stratton did not say how much cash it was expecting from the property other than it would be “fair market value.” Ridgeway was assessed at $5,864,000 for 2013. Revenue from the sale or lease of school district lands will go into “programs and services and much needed facility upgrades that we do not receive government funding for,” Stratton said. The board is also in negotiations to offload Plymouth elementary to the TsleilWaututh Nation to be repurposed into a skills training centre for Keith Lynn elementary to be part of another location for North Shore Studios.

Community Consultation PUBLIC SAFETY BUILDING The District is moving forward with its planning for the new Public Safety Building to co-locate West Vancouver Fire & Rescue and the West Vancouver Police Department in a post-disaster seismic standard building on the municipal hall site. Neither the existing Police Station nor Fire Hall No. 1 are built to a post-disaster seismic standard and would likely fail, or possibly collapse, during a significant seismic event. A preliminary exterior schematic design has been developed and will be presented at the April 24 Open House.

C O M M U N I T Y C O N S U LT A T I O N / O P E N H O U S E Wednesday, April 24, Public Consultation/Open House from 6 – 9 p.m. at West Vancouver Community Centre, in the Lily Lee Spirit Room. For more information please visit westvancouver.ca/psb.

B.C. extends electric Report pans ministry planning vehicle subsidy offer From page 7

$5K grant was set to expire March 31 with $4.7M left in the pot Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

IF you’ve been thinking about buying an electric- or natural gaspowered vehicle, the province is willing to chip in a few bucks to help persuade you. Up to $5,000 to be exact. The province announced in late March that it is extending its Clean Energy Vehicles for British Columbia grant program, which offers a rebate on battery electric, plug-in hybrid, hydrogen fuel cell or compressed natural gaspowered vehicles. “This makes it easier for all British Columbians to choose clean electricity transportation. Climate-friendly vehicles not only help lower travel costs, they improve the air quality in the communities where we live and work,” said Rich Coleman, minister of energy, mines and natural gas in a press release. The fund was created in 2011 to dispense rebates and was set to expire on March 31, even though roughly $4.7 million of the original $6.8 million was still sitting untouched. The fund did not appear in the 2013

provincial budget, but the government will roll over another $2.5 million for prospective CEV buyers. The news is highly welcomed by Bruce Stout, a North Vancouver resident and president of the Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association. “I’m overjoyed. My goal in life is to get as many people as possible into electric vehicles. Anything that helps people afford an electric vehicle, I’m all for. I’m really glad they’ve done that,” Stout said. Offering the incentive has clearly worked as members of VEVA purchased seven electric vehicles in March, when they feared the program would be cancelled in April, Stout said. “If they had cancelled the grant on March 31, there would have been a noticeable stop in the sale of EVs,” he said. Beyond the up-to-$5,000 rebate, the province also added another year onto the LiveSmart B.C. Residential Charging Point Rebate Program, which offers up to $500 to applicants who want to install a charging station at home. Those charging stations are essential, Stout said, because 90 per cent of electric vehicle charging happens at home.

own standards”. Link that to the behaviour of two knife-wielding teenagers from the group home and it’s easy to see cause and effect. It is easy, also, to see why Turpel-Lafond noted that her audit recorded “a clear lack of emphasis by (the ministry) on comprehensive and regular planning and intervention.” No wonder overloaded social workers are frustrated, or that the Representative concluded her executive summary to the legislature with, “There is only one word to describe the findings of this audit — unacceptable.” Unacceptable, also, is that teenagers had to escalate their wrongdoing to violence before Const. Anne Drennan could bring them to the attention of the public. Thankfully, we can end on a positive note

and ask whether the Bradleys’ successful petition might give a boost to other efforts underway. Can they, for example, carry their energy forward to follow the momentum of the March 23 launch of Civil Rights Now!, a citizens’ approach organized by West Vancouver residents David Marley and Jean Lewis? “The event was a huge success with close to 120 folks attending,” Marley told me. “Reaction to our proposal has been positive and strong. . . .” Surely, with people like Turpel-Lafond, the Bradleys, Lewis and Marley showing us the way, we can all work together to make our world a better place for everyone — but especially for our children? rimco@shaw.ca (The Bradley petition is at change.org.)

Race MC Len Kelsey and five-time race winner Doug Wardrop The 45th running of the Southern Straits Classic sailing race, hosted by the West Vancouver Yacht Club over Easter weekend, kicked off with its Captains’ Keg, a dinner and social, at the yacht club in Eagle Harbour March 28. This year’s race attracted more than 650 sailors and nearly 80 boats, racing in the classic short, medium and long courses which ranged from 55 to 132 nautical miles and criss-crossed Georgia Strait. This year’s edition also included a new inshore course during daylight hours only.

Todd Major SOME days there’s just not enough time to get everything done let alone keep everyone happy and on those days the garden takes last place on the to-do list. To help anyone else who has my sort of time crunch, here are a few of my tips and tricks designed for the outof-time gardener. Tip 1: Weeding has to be the least enjoyable and most time consuming task in garden maintenance. To avoid weeding I keep all of the soil in the garden mulched year-round. I even mulch my containers to avoid having to weed them which also help to prevent drought stress. I use wood chips for mulching which I obtain from my friendly neighbourhood arborist. When wood chips are unavailable, I use leaves from my own trees or those found during fall in the nearby city park. The trick is to make sure that every last inch of earth is covered with a thick layer of mulch so weed seeds cannot germinate. Tip 2: Lawn cutting for some people is a form of therapy. For me lawn cutting is work. So I have eliminated the time most people spend cutting lawn down to zero. How? I killed all of the lawn in the front yard and installed planting beds interwoven with a bluestone patio and walkway. In the backyard, there’s a small patch of lawn that I refuse

Spring is the season to look skyward Wild About Birds Al Grass

THERE are signs everywhere that spring has arrived, like bright golden skunk cabbage, cream-coloured Indian plum and pink salmonberry flowers adding their cheer to the greenery. And the Rufous hummingbird is back, arriving just when the salmonberry and red-flowering current flowers surfaced. All winter long we’ve enjoyed our resident Anna’s hummingbird. Now we have two common species of hummers to admire, with the Calliope a local rarity, making it three. Incidentally, there are no Allen’s hummingbird records (that have been

accepted) for B.C., but who knows, you may be the first to document its occurrence here. Good luck because it’s very difficult to distinguish from the very similar rufous. Another real (and delightful) sign of spring on the North Shore is the dawn chorus. This is when birds sing at dawn (and sometimes well before) to greet the rising sun — it’s a fabulous symphony of song. One of the first birds to lead the morning chorus is the robin with it’s “cheerily, cheerily, cheer-up” song as anyone who has one carolling outside the bedroom window at 4 a.m. knows all to well! Add to the robin’s song the plaintive “hum-whistle” of the varied thrush, the lovely notes of the house finch, and the bright “sweet, sweet, sweet, I’m so sweet” of the song sparrow — it’s all very wonderful. April is when we’ll see great changes in the bird diversity as neo-tropical migrants add their voices to those of the locals. Voices not heard since last spring challenge our memories, like Cassin’s vireo, yellow-rumped warbler and Swainson’s thrush. The lovely “tea-time” song of the black-capped chickadee

New not always better in the world of plants From page 13 deep, cool root run. A pot the size of a washing machine is ideal but hard to find. Try upcycling or repurposing a pot from some other sort of container. One tip for planting pots, do not add shreds of foam, broken pots or any other manner of shrapnel to the bottom of the pot for drainage. Adding shrapnel to the bottom of the pot is a myth and those pieces simply perch the water table higher and deny plants the full depth of soil. Tip 4: Solving pest or disease problems can be difficult, time consuming and often the problem persists from year to year. Some plants are important and worth fighting for, some are not. To avoid pest and disease problems I use the following pest and disease strategies: Firstly, avoid the use of chemical fertilizer because it forces soft lush growth that predisposes plant to pest and disease attack. Secondly, choose the right plant for the right place, not the right plant for the place I want it to grow. Thirdly, plants that have a chronic pest and disease problem are ruthlessly ripped out and thrown into the compost or green waste bin. A case in point, I recently found that thrips were overwintering on my hellebores. Thrips are tough, persistent and cannot be killed in one year by any

CELEBRATE

means. So I dug out all of my hellebores and tossed them in the green waste bin. The tip: a good gardener knows how to kill plants as well as he or she grows plants. Tip 5: I love new plants and I like seeing the latest breeding improvements growing in my garden. But I have no time and little patience for prima donnas. Just because a plant is new means nothing to me. The latest improvement in some flavour-of-the-month plant is often not worth having. I like my big old hosta that grows like a weed and does not get eaten by slugs unlike some of the new slug caviar hostas on the market. New is not always better, improved is not always improved. I like to watch other people flounder in the oblivion of “I must have the latest new plant” hell before I will try it. It’s a great spectator sport for gardeners. The last time-saving tip in the garden is the most important for me and many other people I have spoken to. It is: grow plants that move you visually, spiritually, edibly or in some other sensory way and don’t worry about what everyone else is growing.

delights all who hear it. Other interpretations of its song (there are many) include “sweet-ee,” and “cheeseburger” (it is true). This is the chickadee’s song and like other birds it has many calls — like “chick-a-dee-dee.” Calls and songs are different, ie. used for different purposes. The other common chickadee of the North Shore — the chestnut backed — has no “tea-time” song, only a nasal “chick-a-deedee.” Chickadees have been very busy exploring their nesting opportunities — they start early. Now they’re excavating nesting cavities or lining nesting boxes with moss and other materials like animal fur. (They love dog fur.) Waterfowl are all in fine plumage. Local residents like the mallard have been courting for many months will soon be nesting. Wood ducks at Maplewood Conservation Area have been seen perched atop their nest boxes. Common goldeneyes and buffleheads have been courting too, but they will leave us for nesting areas in the interior of the province. The Harlequin Ducks will leave to nest along fast flowing mountain streams. Two duck species that winter in the south and migrate north to breed are the blue-winged teal and the cinnamon teal. Maplewood’s west pond is where to look for these two local rarities. Sharing wetland/marshy habitat with waterfowl are the Virginia rail, marsh wren, red-winged blackbird, and the beautiful little Pacific tree frog (sometime called the Pacific chorus frog). Maplewood Conservation Area is proud to have a good breeding population of the tree frog. Spring is also the season to

look skyward for birds like the trumpeter swans (recently seen at Maplewood), Canada geese and turkey vultures migrating northward. Some turkey vultures will stay the summer — watch for them riding air currents with eagles and ravens. Swallows, some of which have spent the winter in South America, arrive back in April. Watch for violet-green, tree, barn, cliff and rough-winged. And if you’re lucky, you might even see a bank swallow. One swallow may not make a summer, but many do. Shorebirds like the western sandpiper pass through our area from South America to breeding grounds in the Arctic. Tidal flats like Maplewood’s are critical habitats for migrating shorebirds and other species like waterfowl. At Maplewood, we all await the return of the osprey from its wintering grounds, perhaps in Mexico, Central America or beyond. When the ospreys return it’s time for celebration. Spring, it has been said, is a celebration of life. There is much beauty to be enjoyed and appreciated for those who take time to explore the outdoors, and what better place than Maplewood Conservation Area. I should mention too, that recently a beautiful Northern goshawk has been seen near the west pond, and also some butterflies (mourning cloak, anglewings). Al Grass is a naturalist with Wild Bird Trust of British Columbia, which sponsors free walks at Maplewood Flats Conservation Area on the second Saturday of every month. The next walk is Saturday, April 13, where you can learn more about spring birding at Maplewood. Meet at 10 a.m. at Maplewood Flats, 2645 Dollarton Hwy. Walks go rain or shine.

The lost art of stationery Home Ideas

Barb Lunter RECENTLY I was in a restaurant where the back of the menus were hand-drawn illustrations done by the local school children. It was really well done and it made me realize how lost the art of handwritten notes and stationery has become. It seems handwritten correspondence has been replaced by the cyber world. As convenient as this is for us, there really is something special about receiving a handwritten note or card. These are the ones we tend to tuck away in our closets and read over again later. We don’t always have the time to put together something creative for a recipient but if you have a few of the supplies on hand you may be able to put something together in a pinch. Here is an idea that’s easy to do and adds that little bit of a homemade touch to a gift or card. Materials: Coloured envelopes Assorted multicoloured tags White craft glue This idea is great if you plan to hand-deliver your card. If you would like to mail it then be sure to adhere the tag to the envelope quite firmly and remove the white string. Simply write your recipient’s name and address

HANDWRITTEN correspondence has fallen out of fashion in the digital age, but homemade envelopes like the ones pictured add personality to cards and gifts. on the front of the tag and place it on an angle on the front side of the envelope. Glue the tag to the envelope and card. Another cute idea for a handmade note is to use a decorative hole punch, available in the scrapbooking section of craft stores. These hole punches come in all different sizes and patterns.

Purchase a package of blank note cards with envelopes. Use your hole punch to cut out the various shapes on the front side of the card. Remove the solid portion. On the inside front of the card, glue either coloured tissue paper or a vellum sheet in a different colour. The coloured paper will be visible

through the patterned hole punch on the front side of the card. Use the inside of the card to write your personalized message. Barb Lunter is a freelance writer with a passion for home decor, entertaining and floral design. Contact Barb at barb@lunter. ca or follow her on her blog at lunter.ca.

A few months back, I discussed my first impressions of Windows 8, Microsoft’s daring update to the operating system that runs the vast majority of the planet’s personal computers. I concluded that Windows 8 was not a necessary upgrade for people who have Windows 7 machines, but was a great choice for a laptop, and that even without a touchscreen enabled screen, it featured a lively and useful interface once you mastered the keyboard commands and mouse controls. But I had had little personal experience dealing with Windows 8 with touch or on a tablet. I’ve since bought my own Windows 8-based tablet from Asus. I also was loaned a Microsoft Surface RT tablet for a few weeks. Would I recommend Windows 8 tablets, which

Let me try to make that helpful for you: Touch by itself is great. Touch combined with keyboard and mouse is fantastic. Windows 8 likely does that combination better than anything else on the market. You may or may not need that combination.

I started this column in my neighbourhood café using my Asus tablet paired with a portable Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. And it was excellent being able to move back and forth between mouse and keyboard and touch controls to interact with the tablet, especially when using Word. The physical keyboard made creating text easy, while the

Windows 8 tablets expensive but powerful and extremely versatile than an average Windows 8 laptop, which is more powerful and might suit your needs better. If you opt for a laptop and can afford it, spend a bit more for a touchscreen model. Windows 8 tablets come in two flavours of operating system, the RT version and the full Windows 8 version. The RT versions are cheaper, but can’t run legacy software not designed specifically for Windows 8 and available through the Windows online store. Yes, that’s confusing. The RT tablets are closest to the iPad in function and ability, but have a lot fewer apps available, which makes the iPad a better pure tablet experience. (My Asus runs RT, and I’m happy with it, but am quietly jealous of the Apple App Store.) The one competitive advantage of Windows RT is its inclusion of free Office programs (Word, Excel) installed on the machine. The Surface RT, and its superior pro cousin, also has the best tabletbased keyboard out there. The tablets with the full version of Windows 8 are laptops in tablet form. They might look like iPads but are far more powerful. They are expensive but extremely versatile, with tablets running Atom processors the cheapest and best value buy. They demand to be paired with keyboards and mice to get the fullest use out of them. blink@vancourier.com twitter.com/trueblinkit

From page 20 was hooked on touch, but I also wanted a real keyboard and mouse. Ideally this is the future of our computing devices, where we have the choice to use whatever control interface — keyboard, mouse, touch, or even voice at some future date — makes sense for the need of the moment. Call it “touch plus.” Windows 8 tries very hard to move us to that future. The problem for you as a consumer is a) do you need that future right now; b) what kind of device to buy if you do. What you choose depends on price, preference and need, and as always with Windows, choices range from really cool to awful. My own setup of tablet, keyboard and mouse slides nicely into a 10-inch storage bag. It fits my needs of being light, portable and most of all flexible. I can use the tablet by itself to surf the web on the sofa, connect it to my TV to watch Netflix, or I can take out the keyboard and mouse, set it up on my kitchen table and turn my tablet into a capable productivity machine. But it’s not necessarily economical. The tablet cost me $400 on sale, which is $100 less than any Windows tablet available on the market right now. The Bluetooth keyboard and mouse cost me another $150. Add this up and you are spending as much, if not more,

IT’S spring and time to prepare for the warm weather. I am taking swimming lessons, sort of. I am involved in swimming lessons for babies and because my daughter has twins I have the joy of being the extra adult in the pool with one of my grandchildren. Teaching kids how to swim is a basic necessity in a country surrounded by water and sprinkled liberally with lakes, ponds and rivers. There are also all sorts of outdoor water sources from sprinklers to run through, to small blow-up pools to full-sized backyard pools. The two ways we can help our kids be safe around the water are to supervise them and teach them how to swim. If your kids are going to be spending time on the beach or at a lakeside cottage it is important that there be clear guidelines for their activities. It may be that they are to wear life-jackets when they play in or near the water, that they don’t go out without an adult and that they play or swim with a buddy. It is important that you enforce these rules; they may save your child’s life. Just as pools and fun go together, pools and accidents also go together. I really hate to pick up my local newspaper and read about another child who has drowned in the backyard pool. It’s always a tragedy and usually preventable. It is easy to forget that children can drown in a backyard pool as easily as in the ocean or a lake. We also know that babies can easily drown in the bathtub when Mom turns her back for a minute or runs out to quickly answer the phone. Like the tub, the pool becomes familiar. It’s easy to overlook the potential danger and it’s easy for parents to let down their guard. So what are the considerations when you have a backyard pool? Even if you don’t have young children, kids

As a matter of fact, when it’s visiting kids you need to be extra vigilant because they won’t know the rules and expectations. They may be extremely excited at the possibility of swimming in someone’s backyard and you are not aware of their ability or experience around water and water play. A fence should enclose pools; in most municipalities this is the law. But often, the fence encloses the whole backyard, which means it is accessible through the house or garage. The pool should have its own separate fence, which small children can’t open. The fence needs to be difficult to climb and have a latch that is

on top and self-closing. Then unsupervised youngsters can play safely in the yard. Pool play needs to be supervised. Once children can stand easily in the deepest part of the pool and can swim, they don’t need an adult on the deck at all times but no one should ever swim alone and an adult should be within easy call. These rules will vary depending on the depth of the water in the pool. A pool with a deep end requires more vigilance. Don’t leave to answer the phone. Either let it ring or use your cell. You think you will just be gone for a minute but we all know that calls can extend in length before we know it. Make sure visiting children

a

have permission from their parents. It’s also a good idea to insist that all children bring their own towels (thus ensuring that they go home to get permission from their parents and reducing your laundry pile). Develop obvious rules: no pushing or holding kids underwater, no peeing in the pool; if you can’t touch bottom, you need an adult with you. Make sure you go over the rules with the kids before they get in the pool. If they are returning friends, just have them tell you the rules to remind them of the expectations. Pools are also lots of See Swimming page 26

Swimming is fun way to exercise From page 25 fun and can be the focus for many a summer barbecue. Invite friends and colleagues over on a hot day and let them relax, cool off and have fun. A swim at bedtime is a great way to ensure a good sleep. As a matter of fact swimming is good exercise for the whole family. Water play is refreshing, great exercise and

Salmon supper is a favourite Sushi just right after Cove stroll

Romancing the Stove

Angela Shellard

I’M always looking for new and interesting ways to cook salmon.

Deana Lancaster

It’s a favourite dinner in our house, and with its abundance of nutrients, it’s a great choice for heart-healthy eating. Though you might not be able to find fresh salmon at this time of year, frozen is a perfectly acceptable alternative. Broccoli salad adds another punch of vitamins, and although the following rhubarb tart recipe is admittedly an indulgence, a modest serving won’t do any harm, especially if you take a brisk after-dinner walk to work it off.

OFF WITH THIS AD

These days, it’s more fun to load up the crew after school or work, and head somewhere off our beaten track, like to Deep Cove, where glassy water is still unruffled by summer fun seekers, and the neighbourhood sushi restaurant is under (fairly) new ownership. Then again, you know what they say about the best-laid plans: sometimes the hours on the website are wrong. In this case, information online said the restaurant was open seven days a week, except, apparently, for this one. So, after a quick stroll around the Cove, we backtracked up the parkway to appease our hankering for raw fish and seaweed somewhere else, at Genji Japanese Restaurant. I often forget about this little place, tucked into Parkgate Village next to the Subway restaurant, but if you can get a tatami room, it’s a guaranteed hit with the younger set (or with the set who like to canoodle in private). For us, it helps limit embarrassment, and airborne tofu, as our offspring try to master eating with chopsticks.

Genji is a solid step up from budget sushi joints. Maki, or rolled sushi ($2.95-$11.95), contain reasonable chunks of fish and fillings, rather than the miniscule slivers you’ll often find buried in cheaper versions. Genji isn’t Ocean Wise, but nigiri sushi — a wedge of raw fish atop sushi rice — is available according to the seasons (at market price). You can ask to find out what’s available, including tilapia, tuna, sockeye salmon, octopus, tuna belly, spot prawns, scallops and more.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place pie shell on a baking sheet; spread rhubarb pieces evenly in the shell. In a medium bowl, whisk together cream, egg, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour cream mixture evenly over rhubarb. To make topping: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and sugar until combined. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans, if using. Sprinkle topping evenly over tart. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake for another 35 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbling. Serve warm or at room temperature, topped with whipped cream if desired. Makes six servings.

Cubes of agedashi tofu came resting in a shallow pool of soy consommé, lightly battered, crisply fried and topped with a tangle of green onions and ginger. It also provided the most entertainment during our chopstick lessons. Also battered and fried: everything on the Deluxe Assorted Tempura platter ($13.95), including skewers threaded with tuna and salmon, slices of yam, prawns, even broccoli florets. We can’t do sushi without having both California Rolls (not remotely authentic, but tasty nonetheless) and Dynamite Rolls, a similar combo of crab and avocado with added crunch courtesy of a deep-fried prawn. Both are family favourites. It’s worth noting that Genji offers variations with real crabmeat.

Darrell Mussato, Michael Smith, and Richard Walton have more in common than being mayors. They are all passionate believers in what makes our communities the envy of the rest of the Lower Mainland. In interviews for this North Shore News special feature, mayors Mussatto, Smith, and Walton spoke about why the North Shore is a special place to live and work and where we can expect to see changes in the coming years.

COMMUNITY BUILDING

On the North Shore we are seeing a push to concentrate growth near town centres, whether along Marine Drive and Ambleside, British Properties, the Lonsdale corridor, Lower Lonsdale and Marine Drive corridor, or the new centres being developed at the bottom of Capilano Road and Mountain Highway and the additional density being added around Maplewood and Lynn Valley. “It’s all going to be multi-family growth,” emphasized Mussatto of the density in North Van city. “It’s going to be redevelopment and living in multi-family units. It doesn’t mean all tall high rises or apartments; it may mean duplexes, triplexes, groundoriented units, but it’s more multifamily.” “The target growth rate in our community is only 0.5 per cent a year so it’s a slow-growth community,” said Smith, who added, “The challenge is getting growth approved in the community. We have a lot of people in West Van who like it the

way it is and don’t want to see it change.” North Vancouver District’s of-cial community plan recognizes the need to provide alternative housing. Mayor Walton: “Every two years our average age increases one year which is quite signi-cant and that means we’re going to have more and more people on retired -xed incomes. This makes it very dif-cult for the service economy and the future if we don’t accept some growth and try to facilitate people moving into the community.”

Municipal priorities A priority for North Vancouver District council is moving its of-cial community plan into its implementation phase. “The plan lays out the more detailed planning and development of our town centres,” said Walton. “We have a community that for the most part like things the way they are now but those who have been heavily involved recognize that no change at all will bring on

the worst kind of change. It’s really a very, very heavy engagement with our community that is ongoing.” Smith rates redeveloping Ambleside as West Vancouver council’s number one priority. “I’d really like to see some of these Ambleside projects get going,” he said. “If we don’t do something it’ll just be a shabby place that you drive through on your way to a sparkling new Park Royal and that would be a shame because Ambleside for a hundred years has been the centre of village life in West Vancouver. We need to bring it up to speed and let it again take its rightful place in the community.” Speaking on North Vancouver City’s priorities, Mussatto said, “We want to become a more sustainable city – environmentally in reducing our carbon footprint, economically in having a growing commercial base that supports us, and socially in having a range of housing options and amenities.”

Ensuring responsible, sustainable growth

Climate change is a concern for everyone and we look to all levels of government for leadership and initiatives. In West Vancouver, council is bringing in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards for municipal buildings. “We’re changing our building standards to encourage a higher quality to meet the LEED standards,” said Smith. “We’re looking at doing a new public safety building and we’re making sure it’s being done to the

highest environmental standards that make sense.” Smith also notes that West Vancouver residents are high users of public transit. “The best way to get people to leave their cars at home is to provide them with an alternative. We have a very good bus system that’s well supported by the community.” About two years ago the City of North Vancouver made a signi-cant policy change. “We changed the policy on transportation from the automobile being the number one, predominant mode of transportation to plan for, and turned it on its head to say we’re going to plan for walking -rst, transit second, cycling third, goods and movement services fourth, and then the automobile down the list,” said Mussatto. The District of North Vancouver has been proactive in planning for natural disasters that may come with climate change. In 2011, the district received a prestigious award from the United Nations for disaster risk reduction. “The award was for our work in identifying and mitigating disaster from natural risks associated with heavy rainfall and land slippage and forest interface -res,” said Walton. “Most of our community is built above the 10-metre line, the lower parts of our area and the port areas are reclaimed land along the old mud,ats. Whereas we don’t have the same direct challenge with rising waters that most coastal communities do, it certainly is a concern with our infrastructure, our sewers and waterlines, on lower levels.”

There’s a striking glass and concrete tower rising above North Vancouver’s Lonsdale corridor that will house some of the most anticipated and unique residences to come to the city. Wesgroup Properties’ exciting new project, The Prescott, at 13th and Lonsdale, offers spectacular panoramic views that sweep from Mount Baker, the Gulf Islands to the North Shore Mountains from almost all of its 84 exceptional homes. This boutique 15-storey tower is perched above the new head of-ce and ,agship branch of the North Shore Credit Union – a longstanding, community-oriented organization with more than seven decades in the North Shore. Most of the signature residences at The Prescott intentionally face west and will give owners the ultimate panoramic views of both the downtown skyline and the water.

The result is a dramatic tower with a soaring roof overhang at podium level and crystallized titanium panels which is rede-ning the neighbourhood and will surely stand as an iconic building for decades to come.

“This is really our last hurrah,” says Chad MacTavish, sales manager at The Prescott. “We held back an entire ,oor of spectacular homes on one of the highest ,oors but due to our earlier construction completion, they are being released now.”

The Prescott also features a street front public space with outdoor seating areas along 13th and Lonsdale, complimented by sought-after, upscale retail services. The developer has really created a sense of community with connectivity, where people who live here really feel a sense of belonging, where neighbours know each other.

In addition, the gourmet kitchen will inspire the culinary master chef and aspiring chef to cook feasts for family and friends. Each kitchen features polished composite stone countertops with glass tile backsplash, reforested composite wood cabinetry, and premiere stainless steel appliances. The attention to detail is evident in every room of these -nely crafted homes. Each residence also features spacious balconies with a select few SkyView Terrace suites opening up to oversized, private garden terraces that are almost 700 square feet in outdoor space alone. With most suites facing west or south, the decks were also designed as solar shading elements to help reduce heat gain in the summer months. “The patios and balconies blend the outdoors with the indoors, making them truly an extension of your living space,” says MacTavish. Each resident will have access to a private fully-equipped -tness club with state-of-theart equipment that provides a quiet retreat in which to relax, rejuvenate and recharge. In addition, The Prescott is the -rst building in the 3ity of @orth

Vancouver to be designed to achieve the newly introduced Building Security Bylaw, which guarantees increased security and safety throughout. “With the credit union at your front door, the security of living at The Prescott is really second to none,” says MacTavish, adding that the credit union is the perfect commercial user – great design and architecture, an amazing community partner, and fabulous hours that complement a quiet, residential lifestyle. In fact, The Prescott will be one of the most secure and safest buildings in all of North Vancouver. It boasts 24-hour digital video surveillance of building vehicle entry points, secured electronic access using a single encrypted security device, superior -re protection and -re safety, including monitored -re sprinklers and smoke detectors. Residents will have peace of mind knowing that The Prescott also has a gated keyless underground garage for both residents and visitors.

The amenities also include an carwash area and an innovative Dog Wash Station located in the secured underground parkade so that you can wash and dry the family pet after a great day out on the North Shore trails.

As an ode to the rich history of this community, it seemed -tting to name The Prescott after North Vancouver pioneer and sawmill owner Sewell Prescott Moody. Building on his enduring sense of community, The Prescott used West Coast-inspired materials, natural light and pedestrianfriendly walkways to ensure a seamless -t with North Vancouver’s stunning natural aesthetic.

This is your last chance to buy a spectacular home in one of the most established residential neighbourhoods, for prices that truly can’t be beat. “If you look at comparable product in the area – both presale and resale - you are getting amazing value for your dollar at The Prescott,” says MacTavish. “As well, you can own a home in The Prescott for as little as 10 per cent down.”

With contemporary architecture, concrete construction and a city centre location, The Prescott offers the best of North Shore living.

Time Traveller

Local travellers band together while abroad

Travel Concepts and their specialty program, Women With Wings, offer “high touch” tours to destinations around the world, but whenever they visit a developing country, they donate a portion of their profits to a humanitarian project, according to a written statement. When they took a group of 54 people (mostly North Shore residents) to Vietnam and Cambodia earlier this year, Cindy Horton and Ellie Hender, partners in Travel Concepts, decided to build a well and dedicate it to the group. Travel Concepts worked with Uniworld River Cruises and a Cambodian aid organization called The Future of Khmer Children, which provides free education and primary health care education to Cambodian children and youth, to pick an appropriate project. Representatives of Future of Khmer Children took them out to see the well that had been built with their money, said Horton, in the statement. They were struck by the abject poverty of the people, for example, one threegeneration family that was living in one room on a small platform and had no income and so were dependent on foraging and food donations to survive. When Horton and Hender went back to the tour group, they shared the story and pictures from their visit to the well. They also mentioned that the area needed 14 more wells. North Shore resident Shelagh Henderson stood up and asked how much it would

cost to build a well. Horton told her: $300. Henderson and friend, Carole Halle, also a North Shore resident, immediately offered to pay for the well to be built. Then, another guest stood up and offered to pay for one, and another. By the end of their weeklong river cruise on the Mekong River, the group had raised enough money to build 21 wells, as well as purchase whiteboards and make a contribution towards a solar power project for a school.

IT wasn’t what they planned to do in Cambodia, but when a group travelling with West Vancouver’s Travel Concepts left the country in February, they left behind enough money to build 21 wells, and buy whiteboards and contributed $1,000 to a solar power system for a school.

Reinhart’s NHL dream a reality

ANY NHL debut is special, but circumstances conspired to make West Vancouver’s Max Reinhart’s first game in the big show almost perfect. The 21 year old suited up for the Calgary Flames Saturday night, playing a regular shift in Rogers Arena against his hometown Canucks with cameras from the famed Hockey Night In Canada catching all the action. “It was honestly everything I dreamed of,” Reinhart told the North Shore News Tuesday from Calgary after completing a road trip through Denver. “I still can’t really put a lot of my emotions into words — I think the best way to describe it was it was pretty much a dream come true.” Reinhart played for Calgary’s AHL affiliate, the

West Van native makes league debut against the Canucks

Abbotsford Heat, Friday night and after the game was told to be on alert because the Flames might be looking for an extra body. “Around 11:30 (Friday night) I got a phone call telling me I was heading over to Vancouver to play with the Flames,” said Reinhart, who spent a nervous night in Abbotsford and then made the short drive in to Vancouver Saturday morning to join the Flames at their swanky hotel. As the hours ticked by the excitement grew until he found himself pulling on a freshly pressed No. 59 jersey and taking his first

strides on the ice in the arena he frequented as a kid. “Growing up the dream was always to play in that building,” he said. “Obviously as a kid growing up I always wanted to play for Vancouver but I’m not going to complain that I was playing with Calgary.” Having the iconic CBC hockey show on the scene just added to the dream-like moment. “I grew up watching that every Saturday, that was just like an added bonus for me.” Reinhart was on the ice for the anthem and started the first shift of the game and that was when the dream finally took a bit of a turn into the land of harsh reality — through no fault of his own Reinhart found himself watching as Alex Burrows sped away into the Calgary zone and fed a pass to Dan Hamhuis who made it 1-0 just 34 seconds into the game. It wasn’t exactly the intro Reinhart was looking for but the rookie shook it off. See Max page 48

MAX Reinhart follows the play in his NHL debut. The West Vancouver native was told late Friday night he’d be in the lineup for Saturday’s showdown against his hometown Vancouver Canucks on CBC’S Hockey Night In Canada.

Less than 50 spots left! 24th Annual

“I wasn’t too worried about it,” he said. “That kind of stuff happens in hockey — I had a full 59 minutes to go to make up for it.” Reinhart ended up playing more than 16 minutes while registering a -2 rating and three shots on goal as the Canucks rolled to a 5-2 win. “I think as the game wore on I got a lot more comfortable,” Reinhart said. “I was trying to find a bit of a comfort zone and after the first couple of shifts I kind of settled in nicely. I was pretty happy with the way I played.” Friends and family — including his mother Theresa and father Paul, himself a former NHL star — were also pretty happy with the way he played. “I’ve got so many texts coming in that were congratulating me, telling me they were at the game or watching it on TV,” he said. “Everyone who was in town quickly tried to get some tickets. I got a couple of really close friends some tickets and I got to go out for dinner with them after the game. It was overall just a really good night for me.” It’s turning into a good week. Reinhart played well enough to earn another start and on Monday night he was in the lineup as the Flames beat the Avalanche 3-1 in Colorado, snapping a 13-game road losing streak. Reinhart played nearly 15 minutes in the game, moving over from left wing to his preferred centre position, and felt more comfortable than he did in the Vancouver game. “For me, the more experience I get the more confidence I get,” he said. “I think just learning the new systems, what the coaches kind of want from you — you get used to it with experience and all of a sudden you feel more comfortable

out there.” Despite the win, the Flames are obviously in a rebuilding mode after trading away the face of their franchise but Reinhart said there’s still a lot of talent on the team post-Jarome Iginla. “I think there’s still a lot of guys that you can learn from up here, there are a lot of veteran guys who have been around for a while,” he said. He’s hoping to stick around a while to soak up as much of that experience as he can. “I’m just trying to battle to stay in the lineup every night, I think that’s the way I’ve got to approach it,” he said. “The big thing for me is just win puck battles, be strong along the boards, be good defensively and don’t be a liability out there.” If nothing else, Reinhart’s call-up allowed him to maintain the natural order in his hockeymad family. Younger brother Griffin was picked fourth overall in the 2012 NHL draft but has yet to suit up for the New York Islanders. “Griffin obviously will get a shot, I’m assuming, next year or maybe even later this year,” said Max. “He’s matured and grown so much from the start of this year.” Youngest brother Sam starred for the Kootenay Ice the past two years — he was the WHL’s rookie of the year for the 201112 season — and is already being pegged as a potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NHL draft. “Sam obviously has another year to go in junior but he’s looking just as good,” said Max. “I’m happy that both of them are going to get their shots fairly quickly here.” While he’s happy to be the first Reinhart boy to follow his dad into the league, Max is looking forward to the day all three might find themselves on NHL ice together. “That’d be pretty special,” he said.

One age group down, the North Shore Winter Club’s Bantam A1 team battled all the way to the final at the 2013 Western Canadian Bantam AAA Championship in Kindersley, Sask., before falling to Edmonton’s SSAC Southgate Lions in the goldmedal game. The Winterhawks scored victories over the host West Central Wheat Kings, the Winnipeg Hawks and Saskatchewan’s Prairie Storm before falling 3-2 to the Lions in their final round robin game. Their 3-1 record, however, earned them a rematch in the final but the Lions came out on top again, scoring a 5-2 win to claim the regional title.

The Giants drew first blood in the series, scoring in the last minute of the third period to

Game 2 Saturday also was deadlocked at three following regulation time but this time it was the visitors who prevailed, scoring the winner in double overtime to set up a third and deciding game. In the final matchup Red Deer scored on a bouncing, long range shot with less than 10 minutes left in the game to break a 2-2 tie. The Giants pushed for an equalizer but couldn’t pull off another comeback. The win will allow the Chiefs to head back to the Telus Cup to defend their title. Though the Giants ended their season with a loss there were plenty of highlights along the way, including a championship win at the prestigious Mac’s Midget AAA Tournament in Calgary, a stellar 34-2-4 record in regular season play and a thrilling two games to one win over the Okanagan Rockets in

Canada’s young racers reclaim Whistler Cup Andy Prest

aprest@nsnews.com

TWO skiers with ties to the North Shore helped Canada reclaim the Whistler Cup following a fierce three days of competition for some of the world’s best under-16 racers. Vancouver’s Sam Mulligan, who trains with Grouse Mountain’s Tyee Ski Club, claimed one gold and one bronze while North Vancouver’s Riley Seger won silver and bronze as Canada’s finished first in the team standings, ahead of Norway and Japan. Canada won the Cup four out of five years from 2007-11 but lost the title to Switzerland last year. Seger and Mulligan helped Canada get out to a fast start on Friday when they finished second and third, respectively, in the opening Super-G race, completing a sweep of the medals with Toronto’s Jack Crawford who took gold. The following day Seger hit the podium again, winning bronze in slalom despite spinning backwards after nearly missing a gate on his second run. Seger posted the fastest time of the day on his first trip down and then held on just enough in his second to stay in the medals. “It’s a good feeling,” the 15-year-old said in an Alpine Canada release. “My first run was really good. I was starting 24th, and I executed my plan well and then second run, I was just trying to contain the nerves. I was having a good run until I stopped and skied backwards for a gate, and then I kept going.” On the final day of racing it was Mulligan who took control, winning the giant slalom. “Nothing feels better than to be on top of the podium. I’m very happy,” said the 16-year-old, who posted the fastest time of the day on his first run and then did enough to get the win in his second. “I felt really good about my first run, I was solid and kept a good line and didn’t make any big mistakes. I think how well I did in the first run was what helped me win the race. The second run was really rough and didn’t feel good, but it was just good enough to take the win.” The Whistler Cup is a 21-year-old event that brings together hundreds of the best juvenile skiers from around the world. Teams of six — three boys and three girls — compete for the coveted Cup.

TODD, Ivy Lilian Apr 03, 2013 Our Aunt Ivy succumbed to the complications of a stroke on April 3rd at the Lynn Valley Lodge in her 105th year. We are grateful to the nurses and caregivers for their love and devotion to Ivy’s needs, especially during the past difficult week. Ivy was born in Vancouver but was a long time resident of North Vancouver and lived at Twin Towers for over 30 years prior to moving to care last year. Her proximity to the North Shore Neighbourhood House meant she had friends and activities that made her retirement years fulfilling. The family would like to thank Elisa Auyong for her extra efforts in keeping Ivy involved especially the last years. To Andy and the whole Keep Well Group - Ivy treasured all of you. She was a faithful devotee of the PNE and until the age of 101, only missed one year during the PNE’s existence. She was a long time fan of Dal Richards and never missed his performances there and on the radio. She was honoured when he brought her on stage at her 100th birthday celebration for a Happy Birthday song. Ivy was predeceased by her sister Elsie Strom, whom she always missed, and by her brother Robert Todd. She is survived by nieces Brenda Felker (Wayne), Sonya MacKinnon (Pete) and Sharon Yandle, along with nephews, the Todd family, Terry (Sherri) Robin, and Rick (Selena) as well as dozens of their offspring and their families. She delighted in the births of all the babies and the love of her extended family. There will be a family memorial in early summer to honour this gentle refined person with a heart of gold and love of the Arts. She was a lady in the truest sense of the word. In her memory, please buy yourself a pink rose or make a donation to the Red Cross, her favourite charity.

In Memoriam

BELL - Margaret Louise 1950 - 2013

March 30, 2013, just hours before her dear Mum passed away 24 years ago. Meg passed away peacefully, without a struggle, after four years of a long and arduous battle with ovarian cancer. Meg put up a valiant and determined battle to get every possible moment she could get out of life. Her spirit was willing until the end, but her body was just too tired. Meg is predeceased by her mother, Vera Bell, her father, Carl Bell and her brother, Ian Bell and is survived by her sisters Joan (Bell) Turnez of Mission, BC and Catherine Bell of Revelstoke, BC, her nephew Morgan Bell graduating from college in Vermont and her niece Vera (Turnez) Lake of Cincinnati, Ohio. Born in 1950 in Victoria, BC and a resident of North Vancouver for the past 20 years, Meg attended Norfolk House (Victoria), Le Harpe (Switzerland) and Edinburgh University (Scotland) where she received her Honours MA in History. Meg then went on to work at Sotheby’s in London, then to the Greater Victoria Art Gallery where she was Curator, then with Richardson Greenshields (now RBC Securities) where she was a stockbroker and options officer, and ultimately with Merck Frosst where she was a successful Pharmaceutical Representative since 1988. One of Meg’s proudest accomplishments was the Director’s Award at Merck Frosst in 1994. The Director’s is the highest achievement a Representative can receive. Meg also received a Merck’s Business Group Manager’s Discretionary Award in 1997. One of Merck’s most respected and successful Reps in the West, she enjoyed a fine relationship with many doctors for many years. Meg ultimately retired from Merck - very reluctantly as she truly enjoyed her job - just last year when the cancer became too much for her. A service will be held on Sunday, April 14th at 2:00pm at St. Francis-in-the-Wood Church, at 4773 S. Piccadilly Road in West Vancouver. A reception will be held at Meg’s house following the service. If preferred, a donation to Ovarian Cancer Canada or Down Syndrome Research Foundation may be made.To sign the book of condolences, please click on mckenziefuneralservice.com ‘She died the way she lived with dignity, grace and courage.

Hot Topic - Kid’s Clothes (Part 2) A recent study showed that 84% of parents feel that they have noticed an increase in children who dress inappropriately or provocatively. Last week we talked about the detrimental effects of dressing young children like mini-adults. Here are some tips for parents: • You may trust your child’s behavior, but think about those who may be looking at her. • Instead of a negative reaction to your child’s choices, give her style suggestions. • Develop a dress code as a family, taking into consideration different activities and occasions, and the reasoning behind the choices made. • For some, clothing is an expression of creativity. Make sure kids have other outlets for creative expression. • Loosen up, it might involve some compromise. Be sure you are clear about your bottom line. • Look at the letters – what is your child advertising with words printed across her chest or bottom - a company name, a sketchy behaviour? • Get other parents involved and let retailers know when you have concerns.
