No gun, no robbery, no armed standoff Brent Richter email@example.com
A two-hour police standoff and supposed armed hold-up of a West Vancouver bank turned out to be nothing more than a big misunderstanding. West Vancouver police descended on Park Royal around 3:30 p.m. Sunday after a witness called 9-1-1 to report seeing a man carrying a bag with a gun it. Ofﬁcers on the scene found the man in a bank in Park Royal south and evacuated the bank and surrounding stores. But after calling in North Vancouver RCMP’s dog section and Vancouver Police Department’s emergency response team, and two hours of negotiation, the “suspect” was taken into custody without incident. “We subsequently conﬁrmed the person had no weapon, did not attempt to simulate a weapon and although he was having some conversation with the bank staff, . . . he wasn’t in a conversation that involved a robbery,” said Const.

Exchange student dies in waterfall
Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
A Mexican exchange student staying with a North Vancouver host family is dead after a tumble from a set of waterfalls at the top of Indian Arm. The 16-year-old was swimming at the top of the Granite Falls around 5 p.m. Sunday when he was suddenly swept over, falling approximately 50 feet. Nearby witnesses, including off-duty nurses, tried to revive the boy but his injuries were too severe, according to

Coquitlam RCMP. Canadian Coast Guard members and paramedics attended the scene and conﬁrmed the student’s injuries were fatal. The B.C. Coroners Service is now investigating the exact cause of death and working with Mexico’s consul general in Vancouver for the return of the boy’s body. Though they are not releasing his name, the North Vancouver
school district conﬁrmed the student had just ﬁnished Grade 10 at Argyle secondary and that he was enrolled to return for Grade 11 in September. “We are deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the tragedy at Granite Falls. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the young man’s family and our staff is in contact with them, as well as with local authorities and the consulate, to provide necessary support and assistance,” said Victoria Miles, North Vancouver school district spokeswoman, in a prepared statement. “This young man’s See Counselling page 3

No private takers for lighthouse Runaway MAPLEWOOD FARM
horse a scare at the farm
Upkeep costs of WV heritage site a factor for potential buyers Jane Seyd firstname.lastname@example.org
WEST Vancouver’s historic Point Atkinson lighthouse property will likely continue to hang in jurisdictional limbo while federal and local governments talk about its future. Sitting at the entrance to Burrard Inlet in Lighthouse Park, the lighthouse was built in 1912 and automated in 1996. Three years ago, the lighthouse was one of about 1,000 lighthouses across the country declared surplus to operational needs by Ottawa and included in a federal plan to sell off or lease properties to community groups or private interests. Since then, the federal government has been in talks with the District of West Vancouver about the municipal government or a community society potentially taking over responsibility for the site. “There’s been a co-management arrangement in place for several years now,” said Brent Leigh, deputy chief administrative ofﬁcer for West Vancouver. Having a local organization take over the site is something both the municipality and Department of Fisheries and Oceans would eventually like to see. “We’re certainly acutely aware these are of tremendous historical importance in the communities they are located,” said Andrew Anderson, a senior divestiture analyst with the federal government. “The history and the heritage is very important to local citizens.” One factor standing in the way of any quick handovers is money — whoever has ownership of the site will be required to pay for upkeep of the heritage site. Although the lighthouse and surrounding property has been formally recognized by the federal government as a place of national historic signiﬁcance, that didn’t come with any cash. Currently the lighthouse tower and the cupola itself is badly in need of a paint job, says Elaine Graham, who along with her late husband Don Graham was a lighthouse keeper at Point Atkinson, and who still works as a caretaker at the site. But with a price tag estimated at about $200,000, nobody is leaping forward to volunteer. Getting money towards upkeep of the lighthouse and ancillary buildings is an ongoing struggle, says Graham. Recently, a subcommittee of the West Vancouver Historical Society dedicated to preserving the lighthouse managed to get the NEWS photo Mike Wakeﬁeld district — and an anonymous donor — to pay for exterior repairs for the blockhouse, a small building near the tower. POINT Atkinson lighthouse in West Vancouver is one of about 1,000 such structures While the federal government still owns the property, it hasn’t declared surplus by the federal government. made upkeep of the properties it hopes to unload a priority. “We have rather limited budgets,” said Anderson. “Ancillary buildings which don’t serve any program function are going to be prioritized on a much lower country. Groups had been asked to submit proposals by the beginning of June. Anderson said the government will still entertain proposals for the lighthouses basis.” Ottawa does have a grant program available to help with one-time costs, he over the next two years. In the case of Point Atkinson, no formal plan has been submitted, although the added — but that is only available as part of an agreement under which the property municipality has put forward an “expression of interest” to Ottawa. is being sold or transferred to another group. The solar-powered battery-operated light inside the tower is still deemed a Meanwhile, community groups and organizations have come forward with plans to save only a small portion of the lighthouses Ottawa has deemed surplus across the functional aid to navigation by Fisheries and Oceans Canada
Counselling made available
A horse and rider are recovering from minor injuries after an accident at a popular family attraction on Saturday. The incident happened around noon at Maplewood Farm when the saddle came loose and slipped under the horse, causing the rider to fall to the ground. “A young, relatively new employee rode a new animal on her lunch break,” said Derek Palmer, Maplewood Farm manager. He said the horse, which was in an enclosed area, jumped the fence and ran back to the barn. Palmer said he is still in the process of investigating the incident, but employees handled it very well. Visitors were a little scared, he said, but to his knowledge there were no close calls. “Fortunately it was much slower for a Saturday.” He said the farm has never had something like this happen before and it “will never happen again. It shouldn’t have happened during open hours,” said Palmer. The rider is in recovery from a slight concussion and Palmer said he has spoken to her every day since the accident occurred. As for the horse, he said it has minor abrasions on its rear feet, but it is “out and about, walking around.” Maplewood Farm is a twohectare former dairy farm, located not far from Mount Seymour Parkway in the District of North Vancouver. It opened to the public in 1975 and houses more than 200 domestic animals and birds.

tragic death has generated an outpouring of condolences from members of the school community, and we are sharing what we receive with his family back home.” North Vancouver RCMP has offered the assistance of its victim services unit to the boy’s host family and the school district’s critical incident team has made summer counselling available to Argyle secondary’s staff, students and families. “It’s a somewhat unusual situation and there are resources available for students or families who feel they need support,” Miles said. Miles said no one she’s spoken with in the school district administration can remember another case of a student dying suddenly while in North Vancouver on exchange.

Yes this was a lot of work to conﬁrm that this person never had a weapon and never made any threatening nor otherwise remarks to the bank staff,” Palmer said. “But we’d rather do that work than have somebody say, ‘I thought I saw someone with something,’ but didn’t call.”

Language barrier to rescue NS Rescue ﬁnds 2 lost hikers Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
TWO tourists are safely out of the backcountry after biting off more than they could chew on Grouse Mountain Sunday. North Shore Rescue and North Vancouver RCMP members worked together to pinpoint two women who wandered several kilometres east of their destination. The hikers, both Korean visitors in their early 20s, had intended to do the Grouse Grind on Sunday but took a
wrong turn and wound up on the Baden Powell Trail. The two were moving eastward for about three hours when they veered off the trail and called for help. The only way the two had of communicating that they were in trouble was with their Korean cellphones, making for a complicated rescue. Once their 9-1-1 call was patched through to North Shore Rescue, there was another problem — a language barrier. “Working with the RCMP, a Korean police ofﬁcer interpreted for us and we were able to piece together where they might be because we didn’t have a lot of info to go on,” said Doug Pope, NSR search manager. “We weren’t able to talk to them directly. We weren’t able
to get any position information or GPS location from their phones. We were only able to rely on getting very small bits and pieces about where they were.” Once they had some good leads on the lost adventurers’ possible whereabouts, NSR sent out four ﬁeld teams from the top of Skyline Drive to look in the areas around Mackay Creek and Mosquito Creek. “Based on previous history, when someone gets lost off the Baden Powell, those are two very likely areas we might ﬁnd lost people in,” Pope said. They key to ﬁnding them was a description of a steep rockface the pair scrambled down with the help of rope hand lines. Using loud hailers, team members scoured the two known areas with hand lines,
MLA hopeful faces drunk driving charges
A former B.C. Conservative candidate for North Vancouver who resigned just days into the campaign after being arrested for drunk driving is now facing criminal charges in court.
Lloyd Jeffery Sprague, 38, who brieﬂy represented the Conservatives in the recent provincial election faces three charges, including impaired driving causing bodily harm, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, and driving with a blood alcohol level over .08. All of the charges stem from an incident alleged to have happened at around 3 p.m. April 18 near Sprague’s apartment building near the
corner of West Second Street and Mahon. North Vancouver RCMP started their investigation after a citizen called to report a vehicle that had been driven erratically in the neighbourhood, hitting two other cars. Sprague, who works in private security and fronts a heavy metal tribute band, refused to comment at the time of the incident, as did the Conservative campaign ofﬁce. The party quickly deleted Sprague from its website and said only that Sprague quit to deal with what it described as “an unfortunate personal incident.’’ Sprague has not yet entered a plea to the charges. — Jane Seyd
and found them within an hour. Volunteers then walked the tired hikers out. “The most important thing was getting them the message to stop where they were,” Pope said. “They were safe where they were, but they would have been in danger if they had continued because they were hiking almost ﬁve hours.”

Transit cash key
N a dazzling glimpse of the obvious, Statistics Canada recently released numbers showing most commuters in Metro Vancouver are still getting to work in their cars. In the more urban areas, where transit options are better, the number of car commuters is certainly fewer. However, North Shore residents are mostly doing the same thing as other suburban commuters: gassing up and ignoring campaigns to get them out of their vehicles. Their reluctance to park the car and embrace transit are primarily the dual factors of travel time and convenience. Neither of which is surprising. Once outside the urban core — hinterlands less occupied by urban planners and more by ordinary folk — getting to and from many destinations remains a lengthy headache on transit.
That issue isn’t about to go away. Outlying suburbs are among the fastest-growing areas of our region. Contributing to the problem is that drivers continue to enjoy the lion’s share of provincial dollars that go to transportation. Expansion of transit service to make it faster and more convenient for outlying areas is key to getting more people out of their cars. But that won’t happen without money — which is where the rubber really hits the road. Road pricing is one option that’s been suggested by local mayors to raise cash for transit expansion. But Victoria has been cool to the idea, insisting it be tied to a doomed-to-fail referendum. The likely result — more people continuing to drive more cars until political will makes transit a more viable option.
Multi-family housing a social reality
Dear Editor: Your June 23 editorial asks that the North Shore municipalities answer a few questions, referred to as Growing Pain in the headline. More accurately, the growing pains you refer to could be better understood as “adaptation pains” and framed within a few salient facts and demographic and economic trends that any responsible government needs to consider if it is to legitimately hold the name and ofﬁce. The ofﬁcial community plan frames itself within a range of credible facts, science and projections: climate change, an aging demographic, a younger generation leaving the North Shore, the actual and high cost of the single family home — and its maintenance at the macro/municipal level, our crumbling infrastructure, and ﬁnding a populace able to bear the costs of their standard of living. If one accepts each of those components as
factual realities, then our local governments owe it to their public to make plans that mitigate the serious consequences that would arise by failing to plan. For example, for all those opposed to some form of multi-family living: How do they propose to offer decent housing at a cost tolerable to today’s younger generation entering their peak earning years, but with far lower earning expectations than their parents? As the population continues to age, will these seniors be able to bear the costs of maintaining their homes, let alone the replacement costs for the many miles of roads, piping and sewers required to service the present low density of the North Shore? Where will these seniors move to if there are no lowercost housing options available? Many of these aging homeowners are looking to the present value of their homes to ﬁnance their next stage of life. Are we to tell them they have to do it somewhere else, other than
where they have lived for the past 30 or more years? In my neighbourhood, the ﬁrst partial phase of the Lower Capilano Village Centre, part of the OCP 20year plan, would come on stream no earlier than 2017, with full completion of the Capwest site no earlier than 2020 — nearly halfway through the OCP’s plan life. Is this what anyone could rationally consider to be overnight or requiring more time to consider? Far from the North Shore ofﬁcials needing to have a bird’s eye view, what is needed is for the North Shore News editors to present insights into the broad social and economic realities ahead, not those formed by the past. Douglas Curran North Vancouver (Editor: The editorial raised questions about population targets contained in Metro Vancouver’s regional growth strategy and hyper local planning.)
Marine Drive density is creating trafﬁc gridlock
Dear Editor: I don’t claim to read every paper that’s out there or watch every newscast but I’m bafﬂed by the lack of chatter regarding trafﬁc in North Vancouver. I do know friends and colleagues are noticing that it just gets worse and worse. I know there have been concerns brought up at the time that various condo proposals are made. But is anyone on council listening? When the development at the old city works yard
is completed, not to mention the remaining land at the Automall, where on earth are all the cars going to go? Already you have to pick your times to travel along Marine Drive — the bikes and pedestrians make better time. Maybe it’s a secret plot to get us out of our cars? Along with this issue, have you noticed how many of the so called retail spaces on the ground ﬂoors of “The Drive’s” buildings are vacant? The only tenants
to occupy so far are clinics, dentists, pharmacies and the like. Nowhere to really shop or stroll. It almost has the look of a high-end ghetto. Does the question of too many cars and too much population ever get debated in council meetings or, once again, do the developers shape the future with all possible participants sharing the almighty buck? Hamish Watt North Vancouver
Lane parking a bad idea
Dear Editor: At three recent city council meetings, Mayor Darrell Mussatto and Coun. Craig Keating have suggested the possibility of allowing parking in lanes. They both feel this might be the answer to one obvious problem resulting from densiﬁcation: that is, more people and more cars on the same old streets making the lack of parking a top complaint to city hall. So, these two elected city ofﬁcials — prime densiﬁcation advocates — are suggesting that laneways should be opened up for parking. All my life there has been one hard and fast rule which has been drummed into what are now four generations of new drivers: never ever park in a lane. Lanes are for access by emergency vehicles, service trucks and neighbours. It is an excellent rule, a lifesaving rule, a good business rule and a rule that insures goodSee Lane page 7

If the bees are in trouble, so too are we
“Public and private partners are collaborating in response to this week’s die-off of bees in Wilsonville. . . . Bee-proof netting is being placed on 55 European linden trees at the site where an estimated 25,000 bumblebees were found dead or dying this week.” Oregon Department of Agriculture, 21 June, 2013
THE Oregon bees died and still are dying because Safari — one of a group of insecticides known as neonicotinoids — was sprayed on 55 aphid-infested linden trees. When will we ever learn? The spraying was unnecessary because, as I learned from my parents, a mix of mild soap and tepid water would have brought the beasties under control, albeit more slowly. By the time I emailed Bruce Pokarney, director of communications for the Oregon Department of Agriculture, the bee-kill for the Wilsonville incident had climbed to 50,000 and 1,000 dead bees had been discovered under a single tree in the nearby community of Hillsboro. Whether the use of Safari violated local or state regulations is yet to be determined by an ongoing investigation, as is the answer to another question: Why are the Hillsboro bees dying now when
Elizabeth James that tree was sprayed in March? Last Thursday, ODA director Katy Coba said that out of an abundance of caution she had directed the agency to restrict the use of “18 pesticide products containing the active ingredient dinotefuran . . . to avoid the potential for similar large bee kills this summer.” Our resident bee-master par excellence, Ric Erikson, was not surprised to hear about the Oregon incidents. “Bees are today’s version of the canary in the mine,” he told me. “The health or otherwise of our bee population is the best way we have of measuring the success of our sustainability efforts,” he explained. Judging from the wealth of information Erikson has at his ﬁngertips, our sustainability efforts are not doing so well. Bees — like human beings if we’d only admit it — need a diversity of habitat in order to thrive. Yet our indiscriminate use of cosmetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers, coupled

years, yet only began studying them seriously about 30 years ago,” he said. Remembering the gardens of my childhood, I asked Erikson how England maintains its agrarian heritage so well in the face of populations that are signiﬁcantly denser than those of the Lower Mainland. His reply hit me like a sucker-punch: “Not anymore,” he said. “Bees are starving there — to such an extent that government now legislates the growing of bee-friendly plants in English gardens.” Will we learn from that experience? I discovered encouraging news when I followed up on Erikson’s comment about Scotland. Sponsored in part by a Heritage Lottery Fund, the Scots’ Bumblebee Conservation Trust works to provide and improve bee-friendly habitat and education. Using funds our local bee-steward initiatives ﬁnd hard to come by, Scotland’s BCT has taken the steps Erikson and his wife Sharon had in mind in 2011, when they began the Beefriendly Society which was ofﬁcially registered as a non-proﬁt organization in September, 2012. You know they mean business when you see the
most important goals, that of educating catch-’em-young elementary students in beefriendly ways, is proving harder to achieve. The society has all the material it needs. Teachers are willing and the kids are eager. Unfortunately, the North Vancouver Board of Education has no funds. That’s where we come in. The Eriksons cannot fund it all themselves. Can we avoid Oregon’s sad experience and make the North Shore Canada’s ﬁrst bee-friendly community to be certiﬁed by Pollination Canada and the North American Pollinators Protection Campaign? If you would like to help, learn more at Beefriendly.ca or email Joseph MacLean at: email@example.com. firstname.lastname@example.org

Aided by Good Samaritans from the City of North Vancouver, Gerry’s garden is as friendly as the two adjacent bee-hives could hope for in our urban environment. Erikson is working with the enthusiastic co-operation of staff to establish 10 Beefriendly Principles — two of which have already been adopted. The city has banned the general use of cosmetic herbicides, pesticides and insecticides in the community and a citysponsored program for the identiﬁcation and removal of invasive plants is in place.

with farming trends toward monoculture have brought us to a point where bees have almost disappeared from the Fraser Valley. Native bees, I learned, are not the travelling kind. The most venturesome of the species rarely exceed journeys of 500 metres and the habit of solitary bees to stay within this perimeter of the nest has contributed to their downfall. The pollinators so essential to berry production and to the growing of the other fruits and vegetables we’re urged to eat, now come from outside farming communities. At an average cost of about $87 per colony, blueberry farmers require two to ﬁve colonies — about $500 per acre — to pollinate the crops we value so highly. Incidentally, the cost of that contrived solution has tripled since 1989. Explaining that this situation is primarily due to the widespread loss of native pollinators, Erikson says the loss has increased the demand for honeybee colonies in the Valley. Due to the not yet fully understood global decline in bee populations, Erikson estimates farmers’ demands exceed supply by about 3,000 hives every year. “We have been depending on bees for more than 4,000

District of North Vancouver council voted 61 on June 24 to install a permanent cul-de-sac at Hope Road and Bowser Avenue, in part because of residents who described a new atmosphere of security, quiet, and children playing in the street. Initially installed on a temporary basis in 2011, the road closure has forced more trafﬁc onto Garden and MacGowan Avenues, an outcome which bothered Coun. Roger Bassam. “I’m deeply concerned about those people on Garden as some 6,000 cars are moving down that road on a regular basis,” Bassam said. A 2013 trafﬁc study recorded 5,600 vehicles travelling daily on Garden Avenue, compared to 5,000 vehicles on the same route in 2008. Volumes may increase if Hope Road is not linked to the new development slated for the west side of Capilano Road, according to Bassam. “We may be subjecting those people on
Garden to a very large amount of trafﬁc because if there’s no east-west connection running through that community, it’s all going to divert down Garden to Marine Drive.” Trafﬁc volumes are at “acceptable levels,” according to a staff report. The $70,000 cul-de-sac likely beneﬁts the majority, Bassam said, but turns a blind eye to a minority. “It’s easy to support the majority of the community. I’m really concerned that what we’re doing is we’re taking a very small group of people and subjecting them to a not very good future.” Bassam was the lone vote against the permanent cul-de-sac. A driver heading from the road closure to Garden Avenue and Capilano Road will take about 85 seconds longer with the closure than without, according to a staff report. That disparity is outweighed by the community beneﬁts supplied by the cul-de-sac, according to Coun. Alan Nixon. “I don’t think there’s any question that a minute-and-a-half delay is well worth an improved quality of life,” he said.
DNV explains its property taxes WITH property tax payments due, the District of North Vancouver added some tips and tools to its website. District residents wondering if their home assessments are out of line can compare their assessment with the district average on the site. The function also breaks down how much property owners are paying for utilities, schools and agencies including TransLink and Metro Vancouver. Property taxes in the district rose 2.5 per cent this year, with one per cent earmarked for police services, one per cent slated for infrastructure, and the remainder for district services. The district’s budget requires $84.5 million
be levied from property owners this year. Anyone who missed the July 2 property tax deadline will pay a ﬁve per cent premium come September. Credit card payments are not accepted. The district’s website also features tips for taxpayers looking for homeowner grants. Homeowners with a low income level and a home with an assessed value of more than $1,295,000 may be eligible for a supplemental grant. Home values were determined by BC Assessment last July. Municipalities have no control over the assessments. More information is available at dnv.org/ article.asp?c=291. — Jeremy Shepherd

Staff say garage on Alpine Court is a hazard

Jeremy Shepherd firstname.lastname@example.org
A garage on Alpine Court is perched precariously at the top of a dangerous slope, but no one was sure who should pay to ﬁx it at the June 24 District of North Vancouver council meeting.
District staff recommended demolishing and replacing the garage, which sits atop an eroded hill that dips down 28 metres on the way to a hiking trail near Mosquito Creek. “This is a public safety issue. We have an unsafe condition and the potential of a garage coming down a slope where people walk,” said Coun. Roger Bassam. The garage is a hazard, but the hazard was created by a lack of slope stability work performed by the district, according to homeowner Peter Twist. “The erosion behind the garage . . . has been caused by a cutting away of the base of the slope, far off our property,” said Twist, a former Vancouver Canucks conditioning coach. “We wanted to make you aware that the slope in question that is a problem, 95 per cent of the slope, is on district land. “There’s approximately six feet that is on our property.” If council endorses staff’s recommendations, Twist could be on the hook for the cost of stabilizing the slope, a problem he said he inherited. “We’re being asked to fund a local solution for a global problem,” he said. Erosion is graduating up the property from municipal land, according to Twist, who said See $1.4M page 10

$1.4M home worth ‘zero’: owner North Shore bike thieves busy in June Lock ’em up
From page 9
the district has done no work to add vegetation and shore up the slope in the last decade. The potential remediation order would come at a difﬁcult time personally and ﬁnancially, according to Twist. “It’s not something we can afford to deal with, so we did put the house up for sale,” he said. Dealing with the district has made it impossible to ﬁnd a real estate agent who wants to handle the $1.4 million property, according to Twist. “Once they looked into it and assessed the district land around the property and how that’s analyzed in your reports, they all ran,” he said. “The agents and the builders that have talked to us have given us the opinion our property’s an un-sellable property and the value’s now at zero.” A second attempt to sell the house for $900,000 also drew no interest, according to Twist. “We can’t even ﬁre-sale it.”
Whether the problem is caused by an abundance of ﬁll, district work performed in Mosquito Creek in the early 1980s, or the natural process of erosion is unclear, said Mayor Richard Walton. “It does not appear to be ﬁll, it appears to be what you see all over North Vancouver District where you have an eroding conglomerate surface with a clay ﬁll,” he said. “My suspicion is the work the district’s done has decreased, rather than increased the risk.” The issue should be studied and decided before council takes its vacation and the rainy season begins, according to Coun. Mike Little. While there may be a variety of factors, Little said the ﬁll is probably the biggest issue. The item is scheduled to return to council July 15. If forced to perform remediation, the owner would have approximately 30 days to submit a comprehensive plan to district staff and 60 days to begin work. A 2005 landslide near Berkley Avenue swept away two houses and resulted in one death.

BOTH of the North Shore’s police forces are urging residents to keep a close eye and sturdy lock on their bicycles following a spate of recent thefts. Seven mountain bikes valued at more than $20,000 went missing from North Vancouver bike lockers and garages in the third week of June, according to North Vancouver RCMP. Between June 17 and 24, thieves broke into garages on the 1200-bock of Seymour Boulevard, 100-block of West 17th Street and the 2000-block of Larson Road. Among the bikes stolen were a 17-inch frame black Cove, a 17-inch Sauce Brodie and ﬁve specialized bikes of varying models and colours, all taken from one garage. Police are investigating and have added bike serial numbers to the police stolen property list. “Police are reminding all bike owners to be extra vigilant this time of year when thieves may target your valuable property,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, North Vancouver RCMP spokesman. “Please report all suspicious occurrences, vehicles or individuals in your neighborhood, to the police.” West Vancouver police meanwhile have had 13 reports of stolen bikes since the start of the month, a huge spike over the ﬁrst six months of 2012, which saw only 10 bikes disappear. Thieves in West Vancouver, however, had considerably less breaking and entering to do to get their ill-gotten gains. Several of the stolen bicycles had been stored unlocked outside residences or in carports and in one instance, a bicycle was stolen after being left inside an unlocked SUV. Leaving a bike for easy pickin’s not only puts it at risk, it also encourages more theft in the neighbourhood and provides a thief with a convenient getaway vehicle, a West Vancouver Police Department press release warns. Stolen bikes are frequently stripped for parts and sold pieceby-piece online by word of mouth, though buying or possessing stolen goods is a crime. Anyone with information about the thefts is encouraged to alert Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

NORTH Shore artist Laura Wallace transforms hollow core doors into works of art featuring screen printed vintage type. Her pieces pay homage to mid-century signs once prominent in downtown Vancouver.
Art opens door to the past Scan this page with the Layar app to view more of Laura Wallace’s work and to visit Barb Lunter’s blog
Barb Lunter THERE’S a saying that one person’s junk is another person’s treasure. This couldn’t be more true than in the case of Laura Wallace, a North Shore resident who has found a way to transform recycled hollow core doors into masterful pieces of art that evoke
fond memories among her followers. Wallace has always had a fascination with archival fonts and the vintage type. Recently she has found a way to use screen painting, a process whereby ink is pushed through fabric, to create a series of paintings recalling the signs that once graced Vancouver landmarks such as The Cecil, The Ridge Theatre and The Aristocratic. Armed with a background in commercial illustration, Wallace began exploring original work a few years ago. She was fascinated with the wood veneer surfaces of various doors that were typically discarded in renovation and demolition projects. These doors became the palette in which she was able to explore old typefaces and dig deeper into the stories of landmarks that are an important part of Vancouver’s rich past.
“I’ve always been fascinated and obsessed with geometry and what’s on trend at the moment,” remarked Wallace. “One of my favourite passions is to explore modernist themes and attempt to try new things,” she added. The most recent series celebrates vintage typography and pays homage to the vanishing Vancouver signage. Much of her inspiration came from the Museum of Vancouver website which she highly recommends for all to visit (museumofvancouver.ca). Wallace also complements her hollow core doors with smaller “skinny panels” that she is able to convert into funky, retro signage pieces. One of her favourite series is the chalkboards. Adding chalkboard paint brings a hit of black and an invitation to the homeowner to interact with the art on their walls.
In some ways her art pieces are more than art, they are functional re-purposed pieces to one’s kitchen or living room. Her retail space, Department of W.O’.W., an acronym for her partners’ surnames, Wallace, O’Gorman and Welch, is located in Chinatown and represents the respective departments of art, jewelry and clothing design. The paintings range in price from $400 to $800, are available in sizes 75 cm by 200 cm for the large doors, to 30 cm by 39 cm for the smaller, skinny panel bi-folds. If this is something you may be interested in contact Laura at laurawallaceart.com. Barb Lunter is a freelance writer with a passion for home decor, entertaining and ﬂoral design.

Nothing like the right tool for the job Dig Deep
Todd Major IN this age of lowquality products that are made by underpaid workers in some sweatshop factory in an offshore country, it’s difﬁcult to ﬁnd properly designed pruning tools that are made to last. Well-designed pruning tools have always made my work proﬁtable, easier to complete and more enjoyable than the alternatives. During my 26 years in this industry I have tried most of the pruning tools made in North America, Europe and Asia, sufﬁce to say that all pruning tools are not created equal. Well-designed pruning tools are built with ergonomic considerations in mind,
meaning they are designed to ﬁt the human hand and body while easing the potential for repetitive stain injury that is associated with the prolonged or repetitive use that occurs when pruning. Those tools also extend the length of time the tool can be used, which may not be important to hobbyists but it is vital to professional horticulturists. Quality tools last the test of time by performing through the rigors of our coastal weather while withstanding the structural stresses of pruning hard wood. But a good pruning tool does more than just last; it acts like an extension of the human hand and allows the user freedom to focus on the art and science of pruning instead of worrying about tool functionality. By contrast, poorly designed low-quality pruning tools produce unappealing results and they are stressful and frustrating to use. In my opinion, any pruning tool made of lightweight plastic, lowquality steel or poor quality alloy is a junk tool because such tools do not last, they produce unappealing results and cost more money to replace not to mention the

HOME BUILDING BY DESIGN
Construction framing, past to present Dalit Holzman Contributing Writer
OVER the last few months my coworkers and I have been delving into the innards of a lovely 100something-year-old heritage home in North Vancouver.
NEWS ﬁle photo Cindy Goodman
A frame is the skeleton of a building onto which outside and inside walls are attached. There are three main types of construction framing: post and beam, balloon and platform.
The process of renovation (versus new construction) is, as anyone who has ever had the opportunity knows, a journey all its own. Surprises and head-scratchers abound, the handiwork of ancestors (and all of the decades of well-intended homeowner patches along the way) offering us so much from which to learn. The formal dining room, the ﬁreside nook, the ample porch: these are the elements we celebrate as gems that pre-date the open concept of today. And then there are others: the lack of insulation, the single-pane windows, a foundation with no footing placed on non-bearing materials, the lack of structural redundancy that leads to sagging, sloped ﬂoors, out-of-plumb walls. These are the elements that remind us how cheap oil must have been (!) and of the true infancy of our regional method of building. Think of how long it took for the ancient Greeks to hone their art to the point of the Parthenon, the Norwegians their stave churches, the Egyptians their pyramids. Though wood has been used in post-and-beam construction for thousands of years throughout the world, balloon framing (which eventually gave rise to modern platform framing) has been used only since the 1830s in North America. Framing 101 A frame is the skeleton of a building onto which outside and inside walls are attached, and on top of which the roof structure is placed. Brieﬂy, there are three types of construction framing: post and beam, balloon and platform. Post and beam (or timber) framing relies on big, beautiful, heavy spans of timber (in other words, often times whole trees) carved and joined in beautiful and complex ways (called dovetails, mortises and tenons, etc.) by highly skilled craftsmen (or, these days, by highly specialized machines). No nails are needed in this marvel of heavy frame construction.
Balloon framing utilizes thinner, lengthy continuous spans of wood (studs) running vertically all the way from the very bottom to the very top of the structure. From the early 1800s until the 1950s, balloon framing was the go-to method for building homes in North America quickly and inexpensively, because although lumber abounded, skilled labour (the kind needed for complex post-and-beam joinery) did not. With the advent of balloon framing and the nearly simultaneous invention of inexpensive machine-made nails and waterpowered sawmills, any settler or farmer could build his own buildings. Hence, the quick construction of the boomtowns on which our great land was built. So, in balloon framing, the vertical studs run all the way from bottom to top, with the ﬂoors actually hung into and nailed to them. This means scaffolding (extremely tall depending on the desired building height) is used for workers to stand on in order to build in each subsequent next ﬂoor. The second type of light frame construction (balloon being the ﬁrst) is platform, or stick framing. As with balloon, thinner spans of dimensional lumber (most often 2x4s) are utilized to frame the wall and ﬂoor structures; however, in platform framing one complete storey (ﬁrst-storey walls with second-storey ﬂoor joists hung into the top of them) is built at a time, hence creating a platform on which to stand for each subsequent storey upward. The rise in popularity of this more convenient framing method has translated to safer, speedier construction with less structural vulnerability for sagging and ﬁre spread. Through the convergence of regulated environmental consciousness and stricter safety/seismic requirements, present day construction methodologies are being forced to evolve more quickly than their traditionally laggard tendencies.

Junk pruning tools not worth the money From page 14 another, instead of buying just one good hand pruner. Their logic is lost on me. Maybe I am old school but time is money and quality counts so why not buy quality once instead of junk three times? Even for the homeowner or hobbyist, good tools make the time spent in the garden more effective and enjoyable than using junk tools. There is really only one hand pruner that has set the standard for quality pruning tools for the last half century in the world of horticulture and it is Felco. And no I am not being paid by Felco to write this story. As a matter of fact, I regularly turn down product endorsements because everyone seems to be selling absolute junk these days. Felco also sells other well-designed pruning tools including an interesting electric pruner that is worn as a backpack and designed for large-scale pruning
like the work done in orchards and vineyards. Another good pruning tool company is Corona. And no I am not being paid by Corona either. But their tools are well crafted, durable and easy to use. I own tools from both companies and have had those tools in use for many years without need for replacement. It is becoming more difﬁcult to ﬁnd quality tools as the gardening tool market becomes saturated with offshore junk tools found at big box stores. So you have to source tools in garden centres that know something about quality tools, or companies that specialize in professional grade pruning tools and now more than ever through online purchasing direct from the manufacturer. For the hobbyist, homeowner or amateur gardener I can see why they might buy junk tools; they simply do not do enough work in the ﬁeld to justify the expense. However, as our population
ages and hobbyist gardeners continue to work in their gardens, repetitive stain injury becomes more of a problem which is why buying a well-designed pruning tool is important for everyone. And well-designed tools make the work more enjoyable and easier, and after all, isn’t gardening supposed to be enjoyable? When buying pruning tools, quality counts; so does ease of use and most importantly so does enjoying the process of pruning in the garden because pruning is an art and a science, not just work. There are several pruning tool brands that I will never buy, most are sold at big box stores, made from cheap quality materials for mass consumption at a low price and those tools are designed by unicorns.

Design contest calls for entries
NORTH Shore decorators and designers, take heed.
The Vancouver Home + Design Show is on the hunt for the next big name in interior design, thanks to a new partnership with retailer Urban Barn. With $10,000 in prizes, Urban Barn’s Next Top Designer competition challenges creative hopefuls to showcase their signature aesthetic with a Pinterest board. Professional decorators and designers can enter the challenge at vancouverhomeanddesignshow.com. Three ﬁnalists will be chosen from
the Pinterest entries and given a $5,000 budget, plus an assigned style and colour revealed by Urban Barn creative director Sébastien Fauteux. From there, each ﬁnalist will be tasked with designing a living room using products sourced exclusively from Urban Barn. The three completed designs will be displayed at the Vancouver Home + Design Show, which takes place Oct. 17 to 20 at BC Place, where more than 35,000 consumers will vote for their favourite setting — and one voter will walk away with their design of choice. The living room design receiving the
most votes will be showcased at Urban Barn’s ﬂagship South Granville location during the last two weeks of October, with the designer also receiving an exhibitor booth at the 2014 Vancouver Home + Design Show. “Our design competitions are always a huge hit at the show, and we’re getting more creative and having more fun with them every year,” said Jill Kivett, show manager for Marketplace Events, producer of the Vancouver Home + Design Show. Entries will be accepted until Friday, July 19, with ﬁnalists chosen throughout the month of August. — Christine Lyon

PARENTING kids’ stuff
NEWS photo Cindy Goodman
MANY children have difﬁculty settling down after playing or working on an electronic device. To prevent bedtime misbehaviour, parenting columnist Kathy Lynn suggests reserving the last hour of the day for quiet activities.
Planning essential to prevent misbehaviour
Parenting Today Kathy Lynn
HAVE you ever watched the parent of a baby get ready to head out of the house? Are you that parent? You head off with your baby, your purse, your stroller and the ubiquitous diaper bag. You know that bag. Reach into it and you will ﬁnd, diapers (duh!), change pad, sweater or jacket, change of clothing, bottles, food, books, toys and “just in case” extra diapers, food and etcetera. And that’s to travel two blocks to the corner store! This attitude of the diaper bag is one of prediction and prevention. What might the child need during this outing? By being prepared, the parent avoids all sorts of problems because she can meet baby’s needs right on the spot. Once the child is past diaper bag stage we often forget this skill and yet predicting what our kids might need is the greatest tool we can have in our discipline toolbox. With just a little thought we can prevent a whole range of problems we see between parents and children. Instead of putting all your energy into determining what to do when
your child misbehaves, what if you tried to ﬁgure out how to prevent the very misbehaviour that is driving you nuts? We can prevent much child misbehaviour by adding, subtracting, changing or planning. It is not unusual for a child’s misbehaviour to be a cue that she needs something more. For example, your almost three-year-old just seems out of sorts all the time and nothing you do is helping the situation. She could be giving you the message that she needs more in her life. It is time for preschool, for a new activity. She is simply bored. You can add to her life and see her thrive in this new environment. Eight-year-old Jared just won’t settle down to sleep at night. You can see that he is tired and ready for bed. You know he needs the sleep but he’s just so restless. Maybe he needs some of the stimulation removed from his life in the hour before bedtime. Lots of children have real difﬁculty settling down after watching TV, playing or working on any electronic device or super active play. Make that last hour a quiet time. Turn off the TV. Schedule bath-time, snacktime, followed by reading stories and bedtime cuddles. The solution is often that simple. Your two kids have toys all over the house. It’s a mess and you just can’t seem to get a handle on how to get them to clean up their toys. After all, they took them out to play with, why couldn’t they just put them back? Take a look at your setup. Changing the toy storage can be the solution. If you use a toy box,
you know that they cannot simply take out the toy they want and leave the rest. They riﬂe through the whole box but actually only want one toy. One great solution is shelving. Kids will actually (almost always) approach a shelf, and choose only what they want. Cleanup suddenly becomes so much easier. Planning is essential if you want to prevent most child misbehaviours. Remember back to the days when you packed the diaper bag. Before you left you planned the trip and what you might need. Then you headed out. It still works with older kids. Are your kids rested and fed? Is this a good time to take them to the grocery store? Do they know what you expect from them? Kids like to know the plan. So tell them. Where are you going and why and how long will you be? They now know and can adjust accordingly. If they know that the last stop on the trip is the bakery then they can relax. If they have no idea and wonder how long this dreary activity is going to take, they get restless, they whine or they argue with you or each other. Take the time to think about preventing child misbehaviour. Often your kids are giving you a message if you can just take the time to hear them. Then make the small changes needed and your life and their lives will improve immensely.

Rate your local library
THE North Vancouver District Public Library wants to know how it can serve you better.
Throughout July, the library will conduct an online survey seeking input from users - and even non-users - on its collections, materials, programs and services. Survey-takers will be asked to rate physical spaces, hours, electronic services and more. “We even want to hear about your best and worst library experiences so we can continue to provide the best service possible,” said NVDPL acting director Corinne McConchie. Results of the questionnaire will help the
library review and evaluate the resources it offers. “Depending on how much you have to tell us, the survey will only take a few minutes but will have a great impact on your library and the services and programs we provide,” McConchie said. The library last ran this survey in 2010, the results of which helped develop the Libraries 2011-2013 Strategic Plan and saw the introduction of longer Sunday opening hours as a direct result of the feedback. The survey will be available throughout the month of July at ﬂuidsurveys.com/s/NVDPL/Survey2013. — Christine Lyon

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to EXCEPTIONAL CUISINE
Suppliers’ range impressive Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard
Raspberries add sweet to treats
Chris Dagenais Contributing writer
ON June 10, Cactus Club menu development chef Matthew Stowe was named Top Chef Canada on the season ﬁnale of the Food Network’s popular TV series.
LET me tell you how much I love raspberries: a lot.
Stowe is the second Vancouver-based chef to bring home the title; Dale MacKay, formerly of Daniel Boulud’s Lumiere in Kitsilano, won the top spot in 2011. An invitation-only audience watched Stowe’s win at the Cactus Club’s new Coal Harbour location. In a heartfelt speech following his win, the newly crowned Top Chef explained that British Columbians are privileged because of the breadth and quality of food ingredients at their disposal. It is hard to argue with Stowe’s comment. Whether it’s an elusive matsutake mushroom forged from our coastal rainforests or a prickly sea urchin plucked from the depths of Howe Sound, it seems that around every corner in this province there is a prized ingredient waiting NEWS photo Cindy Goodman to be harvested. I must confess that when AGED red apple balsamic vinegar is among the oils and vinegar available at Olives I tune into cooking shows, on Tap, an olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting bar in North Vancouver. particularly ones in which the right suppliers for high quality ingredients that can chefs square off against each other in heated competition, I transform a home-cooked meal into an unforgettable dining daydream about the meals I might create at home if I had experience. access to the same ingredients available to TV contestants. It so happens that on the North Shore we have a number of I suspect that with half a kilo of white Alba trufﬂes, a jar of such suppliers. Muscovy duck fat, and a tank of live lobsters I too might be able to produce some spectacular dishes. One of the keys to making this fantasy a reality is ﬁnding See Olive page 30

I can make a meal out of the little red gems, sprinkled with a bit of sugar, drizzled with some cream; it’s heaven. As wonderful as they are au naturel, raspberries are also one of my favourite fruits to cook with. They meld beautifully into cakes and mufﬁns and make wonderful fruit purees to serve over ice cream or puddle around cheesecakes and other desserts (strain out the seeds as they’re not pleasant to crunch on). Our short raspberry season is now in full swing, so buy a few baskets and make one of these recipes soon. You can also freeze raspberries to bring a little summer into a rainy winter day. Place berries in a single layer on a baking sheet, freeze and then place in freezer bags.

Olive oil sampling style similar to a wine tasting the tasting moves on to more robust oils that are higher in polyphenols and are marked by a complexly bitter, ripe, and extracted ﬂavour. This is amazing stuff, a far cry from the supermarket olive oil that sits in my cupboard at home. I learn from Cameron that a staggering 70 per cent of olive oils labelled “extra virgin” do not conform to the accepted standards for that designation. The widespread trade of substandard and mislabelled olive oils was one of the driving forces behind the creation of Olives on Tap, which traces the origins of its oils to the farms of production and can isolate the olive crush date to within four hours. Their products come with an extensive paper trail to ensure that buyers are getting only the highest quality extractions available. Classic and infused Balsamic vinegars, of which Olives on Tap carries nearly 20 different varieties, are tasted via small spoons that provide just enough of the acidic elixirs to make ﬂavours apparent without overwhelming the taster. On the heels of my exceptional tasting experience I armed myself with a modest new inventory of two vinegars and one olive oil and headed home to dazzle my own judges’ panel (my wife and two children) with a truly spectacular salad dressing. Small bottles of oils and vinegars cost $12 each, medium bottles are $20 and large bottles are $30. Olives on Tap is located at 928 West 16th
From page 29
Among them is Olives on Tap, a boutique retailer that offers a wide assortment of premium olive oils and balsamic vinegars sourced seasonally from small producers around the world. Shop owner Andrew Cameron’s passion about his products is infectious. A late Sunday afternoon visit to Olives on Tap evolved into a fascinating 90-minute odyssey through the world of olive oil, as Cameron recounted tales of international fraud and governmental negligence, of toiling micro producers and the emerging body of research on the health beneﬁts of polyphenols, the naturally occurring antioxidants present in olive oil. This information was all brought to life with an in-depth sampling of Olive on Tap’s wares. Sampling is performed in a style not unlike wine tasting, with an established process to reveal the subtle characteristics of the products. Half-ounce samples of olive oils are poured from stainless steel vats into small, transparent vessels that permit the taster to note unique colour, aroma and ﬂavour attributes. A tasting begins with a ﬂight of milder oils, lighter on the polyphenols that inﬂuence the character of virgin olive oils. These lighter oils reveal aromas of freshly cut grass and capsicum. On the palate, they exhibit notes of tangy fruit, avocado and a peppery spiciness that tickles the back of the throat. Gradually,

Burnaby is still a busy course
Nearby green remains popular
Mark Hood Contributing writer
IT was a memorable year: the ﬁrst manned voyage to the surface of the moon, the playing of the ﬁrst Superbowl, the maiden ﬂight of the Boeing 747 airplane, and the opening of Burnaby’s ﬁrst championship-length public golf course.
photo Mark Hood
The opening hole at Burnaby Mountain Golf Course is a west-facing, 462-yard par-5 over a ridge to a large green. A long tee shot gives you a peek at the green, but for most players, the second shot is a hit-and-hope proposition. Scan with Layar for video.
When it opened for play in 1969, the Burnaby Mountain Golf Course was one of a handful of golf courses available for public play in the Lower Mainland. Laid out on the rolling bench land in the forest at the foot of Burnaby Mountain, space was plentiful and the new course took advantage of it. Designed by B.C. Sports Hall of Famer Ernie Brown, it was a local course in the best sense of the word. Brown grew up in Vancouver and started out as a caddy when his doctor suggested he get outside more to recover from pneumonia and pleurisy. He went on to become a pro at Jasper Park, then moved home to the old Jericho course, the original Quilchena and the Seymour Golf and Country Club before turning his talents to course design. Other courses that bear his signature include Chilliwack, Vernon, Prince George, Pender Harbour and 15 others around British Columbia. At 6,431 yards from the back tees, Burnaby Mountain is a lot of golf for your money. There’s something to please almost every level of player. Most fairways are wide and forgiving for higher handicappers and there’s plenty of length for the big hitters. It’s surrounded by forest and parkland, so the sense of being away from it all is very much part of the experience. See Fairways page 32

Fairways lush and well tended From page 31 It is one of the busiest golf courses in Canada, and over the years a round at Burnaby Mountain became equated with slow play. No longer. The people at the City of Burnaby know they are in a competitive market and are conscious of delivering a toptier playing experience. Tee time intervals have been increased and pace of play is closely monitored. Course condition has also been signiﬁcantly upgraded. A massive investment in a wallto-wall drainage system has left the course playable after even the most torrential rainfall. Aggressive turf maintenance is a year-round focus and bunkers have been re-ﬁlled and rebuilt, incorporating the improved drainage process. Tee boxes have been rebuilt and expanded to add length, making for a more interesting range of choices in the daily setup. There is a new state of the art, two-storey driving range and learning centre and a full list of CPGA teaching pros ready to help you with your game. I was joined at Burnaby Mountain recently on the ﬁrst full day of summer by friends Dan Rothenbush, Don Hartwigger and Larry Verigin. I have to confess that I was among the local golfers who had written Burnaby Mountain off as a destination a long time ago. New information gave me hope and we were there to see if it was all true. It had rained very heavily a few days prior but fairways and bunkers were dry and ready to go. We checked in and went off to the practice green. Because it had been so long since I had last played the course, it was like playing it for the ﬁrst time. My overall impression was of size. This
course was built when land was fairly available and construction costs a little lower. You spend your round surrounded by forest and there are no houses jammed along the fairways. It’s just you and your playing partners. The opening hole is a west facing, 462yard par 5 over a ridge to a large green. A long tee shot gives you a peek at the green, but for most of us, your second shot is a hit-and-hope proposition. The good news is that there is plenty of real estate on the other side of the ridge and little trouble if you’re relatively straight. Fairways were lush and well-tended. The roominess of the course layout made it easier to relax and concentrate on our shots. Even if your line was a little off, the wide playing surfaces and lack of serious trouble meant a safe landing and a good look at your next target. The putting surfaces were in very good condition and held their lines well. For a course this busy, it was the sign of an excellent overall turf care program. Holes two to six weave their way back and forth across the ridge alternating between heading west and heading east. The third hole, a 505-yard par 5, has a pond in front of the green and, for most players, it’s a blind shot back over the ridge, so consider yourself forewarned. Water is also in evidence on the pretty 171-yard par-3 fourth hole. This is slightly uphill and judging distance was tricky. It was almost as if the sheer scale of the course made distances appear deceptively closer than they really are. Number 5 is a big, swooping dogleg left See Birdsong page 34

from a slightly elevated tee box. The shot here was centre right to a (by Burnaby standards) narrow landing area. It wasn’t as tight as it looked, but that’s one of the conjurer’s tricks of Brown’s design. At 390 yards, it plays all of that and more. The length continues on the eighth. At 404 yards from the tips, a generous landing area again gives you a chance to let out a bit of shaft and go for it. It’s rated the toughest hole on the course but a carefully managed slice leads

to little harm and there’s plenty of room to recover. The length continues on the back nine. Number 10 is a 406 yard par-4 back up and over the ridge beside the ﬁrst fairway. For me, the quintessential hole at Burnaby Mountain is the 399-yard par-4 11th. It’s a long poke, with a generous landing area to a green that’s bigger than it looks from the fairway. There are no distractions from the outside world and the faint rumbling sound of distant planes approaching the airport mingles with birdsong. It’s quietly lovely. The short par-4 12th and long par-3 13th give way to a three-hole stretch of difﬁcult play. At 439 yards from the tips, the par-4 14th is a long uphill dogleg brute. The green is hidden from view of the tee box by dense forest and if you’re too far left or right, you are dead. Dense undergrowth
waits to punish the wayward and only a long, very carefully crafted draw will give you a shot at the green in two. Bogey is a respectable result on this one. This is followed by the 185yard uphill 15th. The highest point on the course, there is dense bush at the very back of the green so overshooting is not an option. Again, judging distances was tricky and our group went between one to three clubs more than usual to reach the summit. At 552 yards, the par-5 16th is another tall order. It’s a big downslope dogleg right and if you don’t know what’s in store, there’s a tall cedar tree that rises from the fairway down the right sight line from the tee box. If you can manufacture a fade, aiming for the tree and letting it drift right should give you a good result, but beware: there’s water and woods down the See On-course page 35

On-course staff friendly, courteous From page 34 right toward the green and you can end up in a world of trouble. The last two holes offer a bit of respite. At 344 yards and 352 yards respectively, the gently rolling ﬁnal pair give you a chance to recover a bit of dignity if you lost any along the way. Having written Burnaby Mountain off as a serious destination years ago, I was absolutely stunned at how far it had come. Pace of play was as quick as any Lower Mainland course and quicker than some. On-course staff were friendly and courteous. It had a real local feel, like Squamish or Northlands, and everyone I saw was having a good time. For the conditions, convenience and overall golf experience, Burnaby Mountain is excellent value. Weekend adult high season green fees are $49.50 including GST and Monday to Thursday it’s $39. If it’s been a while since Burnaby Mountain Golf Course was on your radar, time to re-calibrate. This is a very enjoyable golf destination. Check it out.

Big win for Bryn
North Vancouver golfer survives six rounds of match play
Andy Prest firstname.lastname@example.org
NORTH Vancouver golf pro Bryn Parry doesn’t get to take part in match-play golf tournaments very often but, after besting six opponents in six one-on-one rounds to win the 2013 PGA of Canada Championship last week, he’s wishing he could do it more often. The win came at Magna Golf Club in Aurora, Ont., and earned Parry a $15,000 purse as well as an exemption into the Canadian Open PGA tour event scheduled for later this month at Oakville’s Glen Abbey Golf Club. Last week’s tournament was only the third time Parry had ever played a match-play event, the last two coming in 2011 and 2012 at this same tournament. “It’s been a sharp learning curve,” he said. “The ﬁrst time they ran this tournament I lost in the ﬁrst round. This year I played the same fella that I lost to and I beat him handily and was on my way. I’m learning. I would tell you I like it but we just don’t get to do it that often.” The tournament featured the top 64 PGA of Canada professionals — the instructors, head pros, club assistants etc. who teach and play in Canada — competing in their biggest tournament of the season. Parry, ranked fourth coming into the tournament, won his ﬁrst four matches to set up a semiﬁnal showdown Friday morning against Brian McCann, the No. 1-ranked player in the tournament.

BRYN Parry faced down six match-play opponents and one epic storm to win the PGA of Canada Championship held last week at Magna Golf Club in Aurora, Ont. “We’ve known each other for a long time, we’ve played together a bunch,” said Parry. “Obviously we like to have a go at each other and see if we can take each other down.” McCann played like a No. 1-seed, shooting a four under, but Parry was even better, notching a scorching score of seven under through 16 holes to win 4&2 (four holes up with two remaining). That set up a Friday afternoon ﬁnal against Ontario’s Billy Walsh, a player that Parry had been paired with only once before and that was for just one hole. The two met in a playoff at last year’s Canada Cup with Parry taking the title with a birdie. On Friday they got to renew the rivalry with similar stakes but a lot more holes to play.
“He’s a whale of a player,” said Parry. “He hits it far, really great player and fun to be around. We had a great time out there.” The fun included a one-hour rain delay caused by an epic Eastern Ontario storm. “It was something that B.C. would never see,” said Parry. “It was unbelievable. We were in T-shirts on the sixth green, we were in windbreakers on the seventh tee and we were in full battle gear, under umbrellas and hiding under trees watching the greens ﬂood by the time we got to the seventh green. It was unreal — it was like somebody took a bathtub and just turned it upside down.” See Parry page 38

Play was halted and the players were ushered off the course. When the storm passed there was a lot of work to be done to get everyone — and everything — ready to resume. “Some of the guys were in robes putting their gear in the dryer to get themselves reset for going back out,” said Parry. “The superintendent told us the maintenance crew was done for the day so they were in the shed having some Coors Light. He went in and got them and told them they had to get back out and squeegee greens and rake bunkers. It was a big effort from everyone, it was very impressive how they recovered the course from that amount of water.” With light waning the players weren’t given any warm-up time and so both faced down eight-foot par putts on newly soaked greens. “He came up short and I over-adjusted and hit one by,” said Parry. “We both made the one coming back so it ended up being a wash.” The golf, however, picked right back after that little hiccup and Parry and Walsh waged an epic battle down the stretch. The strategic and intriguing nature of matchplay golf came into sharp focus on the 15th hole with Parry one up. Tournament ofﬁcials had turned what was normally a 360-yard hole into a drivable, 300-yard par four. Both players reached the green in one and Walsh made an easy two putt for birdie. Parry, however, overshot his ﬁrst putt and ended up 25 feet away in a collection area off the green. With 10 feet of fringe to go through before even getting back on the green, Parry pulled out his putter again and took his best shot. “I got it online, hit it hard and got lucky,” he said. It was a crucial make. “It kept me one up and forced Billy to try to attack and make another birdie. If I had missed that we would
have been tied and he’d have the momentum and who knows where it goes from there. Golf gave me one right there and I took advantage of it.” Parry took it home from there for a 2&1 win. The 41-year-old CPGA teaching professional at North Vancouver’s Seymour Creek Golf Centre will now set his sights on what will be his third ever PGA event, the 2013 Canadian Open. He hasn’t tasted the big tour since teeing it up in 2007’s Canadian Open held at Angus Glen. “I’m totally pumped — that’s going to be the highlight of the year,” he said. “It wasn’t on the schedule until Friday when I won the tournament and now I’ll focus on it for three weeks, get prepared and go out there and enjoy the week.” Parry has lived in the Lower Mainland for most of his life and the past 13 years in North Vancouver, earning a busy living as a teaching pro at Seymour Creek — they have no actual course but make use of a massive driving range and training centre. “I love it,” he said. “My dad was a school principal and teacher, my mom was a teacher. I was a ski instructor from when I was 16-21. I think it kind of comes naturally to us to try to share ideas and help people get better at sports.” That being said, however, Parry certainly wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to play PGA golf full time if by some chance he happened to win the Canadian Open. Anyone who wins a sanctioned PGA event gets a twoyear exemption on tour. “If we’re going to go for an all-in scenario then yeah,” he said with a laugh. “If I won a PGA tour event I probably would be happy to take on the rest of the opportunities to play out the season and be a member for a couple of years.”

last a lifetime For over six years, Dr. Rahmany and the staff at Skyline Dental Centre have been committed to providing you with compassionate, professional dental care of the highest standards in a comfortable and relaxed environment. To ensure that your smile lasts a lifetime, here are ﬁve reasons to see your dentist.
1 2 3 4 5
TO HELP MAINTAIN GOOD PHYSICAL HEALTH
TO PREVENT GUM DISEASE, BAD BREATH AND TO KEEP YOUR TEETH
One of the best reasons to take care of your mouth is that people with periodontal or gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease according to recent studies. Oral bacteria can enter the bloodstream, attaching to fatty plaques in the heart’s blood vessels, causing clots to form. Inﬂammation in the gums contributes to swelling in the arteries. Regular dental cleanings will likely reduce your risk of heart disease and strokes.
Gum disease is an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. If diagnosed early, it can be treated and reversed. Studies show that 85% of people with persistent bad breath have a dental problem that is to blame. Good oral hygiene is essential in preventing bad breath. If treatment is not received, a more serious and advanced stage of gum disease may follow, leading to tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings and checkups are key factors in preventing this from happening.
TO DETECT DENTAL PROBLEMS EARLY
Dr. Rahmany and the hygienists at Skyline Dental Centre will be able to detect any early signs of problems with your teeth and gums. Early detection of cavities, broken ﬁllings and gum disease are easily treatable. If these problems go untreated, root canals, gum surgery and removal of teeth could become the only treatment options available. Your hygienist will help to ensure that you are maintaining your oral health and will put you back on the right path if you fall off track with your oral care.
TO PREVENT ORAL CANCER
TO HAVE A WHITE SMILE
According to Health Canada, about 4000 new cases will be diagnosed in Canada this year, and about 1500 people will die from oral cancer this year. When you have your dental cleaning, we use special equipment geared towards screening for oral cancer, which is highly curable if diagnosed early.
Your hygienist will remove most coffee, tobacco and tea stains, and will polish your teeth to a beautiful shine
With our new SpaDent Whitening system, we also provide state-of-theart technology to improve the shade of your teeth in just 20 minutes, WITH NO SENSITIVITY! Ask us about our new SpaDent system. Call us at Skyline Dental Centre for a free consultation today!
