Junket debate fans CNV council drama Brent Richter

A disagreement at City of North Vancouver council over whether to pay for council members to attend a conference in California escalated into an argument with the mayor threatening to kick one councillor out of chambers, Monday night. The verbal brouhaha started when Coun. Linda Buchanan put forward a motion to allow councillors to attend the Safe Routes to School National Conference in Sacramento in August at the city’s expense. The estimated cost for one council member to attend the event is likely more than $1,000. Coun. Rod Clark said the conference was an improper use of taxpayers’ money, bringing up the recent Canadian senators’ expense scandal. “I’d like to term this as tap-dancing with Mike Duffy because good old Mike has presented himself to Canada as profligate spender of taxpayer See School page 5

Arson possible in Ambleside fire West Van Police call for public’s help on commercial block blaze

Brent Richter

WEST Vancouver police now say a fire that ruined nine businesses in a commercial building on the 1300-block of Marine Drive in Ambleside last fall is being treated as a suspected arson.

Police are hoping a tip from the public can move the investigation to the next level. “We’re looking for anyone from the public who may have any information about it. It was initially described as ‘not suspicious,’” said Const. Jeff Palmer, West Vancouver police spokesman. “Upon further investigation, it was no longer true to say it wasn’t suspicious and so there’s still a very active investigation going on.” Palmer could not say what evidence points to the fire being deliberately set, though police have had suspicions since soon after the fire nine months ago. “We did a very detailed investigation from the outset. This has been a criminal investigation for some time,” he said.

Police say they have identified suspects, but are not releasing any details “for investigative purposes.” “We aren’t in a position to publicly identify anyone as person of interest or otherwise, but it’s still a very active investigation,” Palmer said. West Vancouver Fire and Rescue raced to the building on the night of Oct. 28 when witnesses reported smoke and flames coming from the roof of Tasos restaurant. Crews kept the blaze contained to the kitchen, where it appeared the fire had started. Eight other businesses suffered water damage and were forced to close. Among

Fire destroys Dundarave family home

Neighbours report hearing two explosions Brent Richter

IT could be months before authorities know the cause of the fire that displaced an upper Dundarave family on Sunday, but West Vancouver police have joined the investigation. The second floor of the home on the 2500-block of Palmerston Avenue was destroyed by flames and a cavedin roof, and the main floor is heavily damaged, according to Martin Ernst, West Vancouver Fire and Rescue chief. Neighbours of the home began calling for help after hearing at least two explosions loud enough to set off neighbourhood car alarms, and seeing black smoke around 4:10 p.m. “Multiple 9-1-1 calls (came in) and that always tells us it’s FLAMES shoot from the roof of a house in the 2500 block of Palmerston Avenue in West Vancouver Sunday. something quite serious. There were reports of a lot of smoke and flames from the deck and (flames) getting into the roof area,’ Ernst said. Firefighters, carried out a “fast attack” to douse the flames and prevent them from spreading to the two adjacent homes. But it was too late to save the burning house. “It had already spread to the attic space, which makes it very difficult to fight at that point,” Ernst said. Luckily, the family of five who live in the home was out running errands at the time of the blaze and no one was hurt, Ernst said.

THE West Vancouver Police Department is issuing a warning to cyclists: Just because you’re on two wheels, it doesn’t mean you’re not subject to the same rules of the road and enforcement as drivers. With summer weather, there are more cyclists on the roads. “Unfortunately, rising complaints to West Vancouver police indicate many members of the cycling community disregard the very traffic rules designed to protect them,” a WVPD press release states.

North Shore Rescue plucks trail runner from cliff ledge Anne Watson

NORTH Shore Rescue was called in to help with the rescue of a man stranded on a narrow cliff ledge in Coquitlam over the weekend. The man became lost after heading out for a run along one of Burke Mountain’s trails on Saturday and ended up on a narrow ledge. He was not found until early Sunday morning. “Coquitlam Search and Rescue had

spotted the subject from the air in a very steep canyon area, overlooking the Pitt River,” said Tim Jones, North Shore Rescue leader. “And a short time later, they called requesting our assistance to do a helicopter long line rescue.” The team, one of many involved in the rescue, was called in shortly before 8 a.m. Sunday, said Jones, and it took approximately an hour and a half to pull the man out. “This was not a standard long line rescue,” he said, adding that the team required a 250foot long line to reach the man. Two rescue

technicians were offloaded above the cliff and repelled down to avoid knocking the unprotected man off of the outcropping. “We weren’t rushing this call,” said Jones. “He was actually exposed to the sun so he was quite warm.” They were then able to secure the man into an evacuation harness and airlift him to safety. “He was uninjured but quite tired and beat up,” said Jones. The man was wearing only a tshirt, shorts and running shoes and Jones said it didn’t appear that he had a lot of equipment with him.

Jones said that even though trail runners like to travel light, he does not recommend it for that area. Bringing small hydration packs, a first aid kit and even GPS can make a difference, even with the added weight. “Ten pounds could mean everything to you surviving,” he said. Long line helicopter rescues require a lot of experience, said Jones, and it was the culmination of the experienced pilot, technicians and team that lead to the man’s safe rescue, as well as the combined effort of the other rescue teams.

School transport not city issue: Clark

dollars,” Clark said. Clark then went on to suggest that Buchanan’s history as a school board trustee was being improperly brought to the city. “If a certain member of council cannot get past their school board focus, perhaps the voters will send them back to the school board in the next election,” Clark said, triggering a row with Mayor Darrell Mussatto. Mussatto cut Clark off on the grounds that it is against council bylaws to question the motives of another council member. Clark continued making his point that the city council is “besieged by school board types” trying to push a school board agenda. Mussatto shot back again, raising his voice. “Coun. Clark, you’re not going to use that language again,” Mussatto commanded. “I have and I shall, thank you,” Clark responded. This led to a demand from Mussatto that Clark apologize, which he refused to do. When Mussatto told Clark he could apologize or leave the council chamber, Clark responded: “Better get the (sergeant)-at-arms.” It was not until Mussatto read out the bylaw Clark was violating that he relented. “‘...Under no circumstances shall a member attack or question the motives of another member.’ You’re questioning the motives of anther member. That’s unacceptable, OK? Withdraw that comment,” he said. At that, Clark withdrew the remark and the discussion proceeded. Coun. Craig Keating, speaking to the substance of the conference, read a long list of representatives from various levels of government,

and professionals in environmental advocacy, public health, planning and architecture, who will be attending the conference. “When I go through that list...what I see is a long list of things we regularly deal with in terms of how we plan communities,” he said, drawing agreement from staff and other members of council. Speaking in defence of the conference, Buchanan argued it is prudent for the city to look for best practices, especially as the school district goes through changes. “I do believe the transportation of children to and from school falls within the mandate of the municipality. We are responsible for transportation, land use, and the built environments,” she said. “The more safely we can get them there, the better, and I take the safety of the children in our community seriously and so if we can look at ways to get them there as safely as possible and work with others who have done a better job at this, then I am happy to attend.” Council eventually voted 5-1 to approve the funding out of the city’s legislative conventions and delegations budget, with Clark voting against and Coun. Guy Heywood absent from the meeting. According to the conference website, registration for the three-day event is $375 to $450 and single rooms at the host hotel are $100 per night. Earlier in the day, members of council received an email from City Voices member Toni Bolton questioning the costs and how the city would be served by the junket. Bolton went on to suggest that the city could glean the same information from a website, or find a Canadian equivalent. SCAN with Layar app to view video.

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

Tuned in, turned off


WO months after the provincial election, the post-mortems are continuing to roll in. Pollsters have continued to examine how they got the predictions so wrong. Turns out, those happy to give their opinions in polls are not the same people who show up to vote. Go figure. More disturbingly, as Angus Reid recently made public, voters aren’t equal opportunity no-shows. Young people, who are disproportionately more likely to answer online surveys favoured by pollsters, are also far less likely to actually vote. The news is both ironic and troubling. In some regards, it’s easy to see why people 18 to 30 would opt out of ‘the system.’ They’re shut out of the housing market, have high unemployment and have discovered that education leads to

student debt but not necessarily a job. But they are also a generation more connected than any in the past. On social media, Millennials aren’t shy about sharing their opinions or letting the world know what they’re up to. But between having an opinion and taking political action, something’s still getting lost in translation. It could be that our political systems — which haven’t changed much in decades — could also learn to evolve with the societies they serve. Electronic voting — which comes with its own Pandora’s box of issues — is something that will likely be ushered in at some point. That could radically change existing patterns. In the meantime, Woody Allen’s old quote is still true: that 80 per cent of life is showing up. That goes for the ballot box too.


Economy rolls on vehicles, not bikes

Dear Editor: I have a serious concern with the amount of advocacy that bike supporters are getting in the local media lately. In the interest of brevity, let’s just say that there are many cycling advocates who constantly appear in news articles and television segments, espousing the need for separate bike lanes, or the lack of need for government to have a helmet law, and how road rules should be different for cyclists. Advocates frequently mix up the need to have safe passages for commuting cyclists with pushing cycling for social reasons, like exercise. Sure, building safe passages might get more people biking, but will they do it for commuting purposes? Our economy and our livelihoods rely heavily on the efficient transfer of goods and services. I know there are many cycling advocates who like to refer to studies that show how car drivers have been subsidized for their road use. But none of

those studies ever takes into account how badly our economy (and therefore our livelihoods) would be damaged if those roads didn’t exist for drivers. In reality, we’re not being subsidized — we actually depend on roads significantly. Many cycling advocates are concerned about the environment. But I can adamantly say that concerns about the environment take a back seat to peoples’ livelihoods. If they want to keep proposing activities that damage our economy, prevent jobs from being made, etc., then eventually there will be some serious struggle. If that happens, I can guarantee the environment will be a secondary concern. Right now, for our society to remain productive, we need roads to allow for the free flow of goods and services by vehicles — much more than bikes. I’m aware that a majority of municipalities are hoping to reduce car traffic significantly over the next 25 years, but that’s not a reason to put bikes

first (which is definitely what’s been happening). Transit also needs roads, people. Recently, Statistics Canada showed that two per cent of all commuters in North Vancouver were cycling. Sure, cycling might increase a little if you put in safer bike passages, but to what? Four per cent, like in Metro Vancouver? Let’s be realistic. On the North Shore especially, bikes won’t be used for commuting much. There are too many hills and we live in sprawling neighbourhoods So let’s cut down the cycling advocacy a little bit. And please, stop using Europe as an example, cycling advocates. Have you seen what’s been happening in Europe over the last two years? Clayton Mitchell North Vancouver

Cyclists, boarders, cars equals recipe for trouble

Dear Editor: What do police, lawyers and bicycle helmets have in common? Most are treated with disdain until you actually need one. The best bike helmet is the one you put on 10 minutes before your head hits the curb. The worst bike helmet is the one back in the garage while your head hits the curb. Vancouver has the most infuriating drivers in Canada, if not North America.


I myself have been hit with brain flatulence while driving and ask myself afterwards how I could be so stupid. Into the middle of this throw in cyclists (forget comparisons to Amsterdam and cycling along a canal, try East Hastings on your way to work) and longboarders coming down our steep hills, which kind of looks like fun. But every time I move my sixfoot-six body faster than walking, I injure myself. I

have the scars and metal pieces to prove it. My wife could sell tickets. The best advice to anyone on a bicycle or board in this city is wear full body armor, and have extended medical insurance. It would also help to have a friend who is a lawyer or police officer. Barry Miles North Vancouver

Honest act appreciated

Dear Editor: This past month I went to Sears to pay my credit card bill at the cosmetics cashier. I took the money out of my wallet and realized half the money was gone. I paid what I could on my bill and went home wondering where I could have lost it. When I got home there was a phone message from Sears saying they had found the money. I went back to Sears and was able to pay the balance on my bill. I am so grateful for the honesty of the woman in cosmetics who found my money. Sears was able to find me through the payment I had made. Thank you to the staff who took the time to find my phone number and call me. What could have been a challenging situation was a miracle showing the inherent goodness and helpfulness in people. Thank you. Carol Anne Munro North Vancouver

BC Hydro has many questions to answer AS I was reading over recent paragraphs I wrote on BC Hydro, I realized the airwaves were buzzing with a story that the corporation was cancelling bonuses for 2,000 staffers.

Just Asking

Elizabeth James to begin on the 287-kilovolt Iskut extension to the line. Coleman said the 93kilometre extension was to be built by “the Imperial Metals Corporation, owner of the Red Chris mine, in partnership with the Tahltan Nation Development Corporation.” Knowing what we know today, that announcement contained the first cryptic clue to raise a red flag: “Once the Iskut extension is complete, BC Hydro will acquire it from Imperial Metals.” So who pays for the construction? Imperial? Red Chris? B.C. taxpayers? Are those dollars tucked into the escalation of Northwest Transmission Line costs from the May 28, 2010 guesstimate of $404 million announced by then Energy Minister Blair Lekstrom? What will Hydro pay Imperial for the acquisition? Will it be the $160 million to $201 million shown separately for the Iskut in Hydro’s revised 2013/14 to 2015/16 service plan? Whatever the answers, the combined total for the Northwest Transmission Line-Iskut projects comes to a whopping $896 million to $947 million.

systems to identify the additional costs” are mindboggling. The Northwest Transmission Line construction has been underway for the better part of three years. Did the best minds not notice the invoice amounts rolling in? Although Hydro has taken the brunt of the flack for the overruns, Campbell-Clark fingerprints have been all over the project since 2008 when Gordon Campbell dusted off a 30-year old idea. That phase culminated on Sept. 1, 2011 when Hydro’s then president and CEO, Dave Cobb, said he was pleased to have selected two high-quality contractors who would “provide the highest overall value to [Hydro’s] ratepayers at the most costeffective price.” The successful bidders: Valard Construction, a Quanta Services company, and Burns & McDonnell. Of interest is that, on Oct. 25, 2010, Houston-based Quanta acquired Edmonton’s Valard Construction for “approximately US$219 million” and retained Adam and Victor Budzinski as president and CEO of its new “platform operating unit”. A partial list of Quanta’s expertise: electric power, natural gas and pipeline infrastructure; horizontal directional drilling (important for power-water-hungry shale gas extraction), transmission lines and acquisitions. Connect the dots however you will; just make sure you include Christy Clark’s trillion-dollar LNG dreams which, in turn, will be used to justify construction of the $8 billion Site-C dam.

And if BC Hydro was not responsible for estimating the project at $404 million, whose legal team wrote up the contract? The unprotected ratepayers who will be told to pay the piper are entitled to some answers — now, not later.

bidder of this or any other capital project is required to provide assurances that it can design and build it for the dollars on the table. So, truthfully now, who really “underestimated” the challenges and lacked “sufficient early warning systems” — BC Hydro or Quanta-Valard?


But if Hydro President and CEO Charles Reid hoped that news would be good enough to outweigh the bad yet to come, he was to be royally disappointed. Not only were the bonuses for staff at Hydro subsidiary Powerex to be retained — supposedly to persuade the ‘best minds’ to stick around and lead us into economic paradise — but hard on the heels of that news came the thunderbolt about the doubled-up cost of the Northwest Transmission Line. I listened idly as media balloons began to burst. Initial excuses for the massive cost-overrun were that the terrain was more challenging than expected and the costs of bringing in labour were higher than anticipated. All of this was known in advance of the election. In fact, it was likely known before March 22, when Rich Coleman, then minister of mines and natural gas, announced work was about

Incidentally, Lekstrom originally predicted the Northwest Transmission Line project would generate 280 construction jobs and 400 long-term jobs. Now, we’re told it’ll be 600 construction jobs and 300 long-term jobs. No wonder the costs of labour have ballooned. But we’re not done yet. The more Hydro talks, the deeper the quagmire of questions becomes. The traditional advice is to ‘follow the money.’ If Hydro is unhappy with that suggestion then British Columbians need Reid to provide them with a more fulsome explanation than his July 2 Vancouver Sun opinion column — before their pockets are picked to the tune of a billion dollars. Politics aside, 50 per cent or more of Reid’s article was a reprise of Hydro’s “long, proud history” since the 1960s and of the good news yet to come. Fair enough; but he came nowhere close to explaining a construction cost increase of at least $330 million dollars. We understand fluctuations in Canadian dollar values can adversely affect the cost of major items such as the turbines Reid mentioned in his opinion piece. But currency values are always volatile, so why did his rationale fail to acknowledge the savings that should have been achieved on a mass of other items when our dollar was nudging par? Currencies and cost of goods aside, Reid’s comments that Hydro had “clearly underestimated” the Northwest Transmission Line project and “didn’t have sufficient early-warning


“In the case of the Northwest Transmission Line, BC Hydro shares concerns about the $736 million cost for this project. Clearly, we underestimated the challenges of this particular project and didn’t have sufficient early warning systems to identify the additional costs.” Charles Reid, president, CEO, BC Hydro.

Herbicide spraying worries NV beekeeper Glyphosate used to combat invasive Japanese knotweed Jeremy Shepherd

THE District of North Vancouver should not try to repel the intrusion of invasive plant species with chemically based herbicides, according to at least one beekeeper. NEWS file photo

A local beekeeper is concerned about a municipal decision to spray the chemical herbicide glyphosate on Japanese knotweed near beehives.

Fiona Gold was tending to two hives on St. Andrews Avenue near East Kings Road

recently when she noticed a sign alerting residents that glyphosate had been sprayed approximately 40 feet from the apiary. “I think people should just be aware that the district is spraying this stuff and it is toxic,” Gold said. The object of the spray was a crop of Japanese knotweed, an invasive species that has been known to sprout up through roads and retaining walls. Killing the plants quickly is critical, according to District of NorthVancouverenvironmental sustainability section manager Julie Pavey. “When you’ve got stems of knotweed you’ve displaced your native vegetation,” she said. Gold’s bees appeared to move slightly differently after the spraying, but were otherwise OK, she said. “They’re alive, thank God.” Glyphosate is the active ingredient in popular weed killers, but it may be harmful to more than just plants, according to Gold. Researchers from the Chulabhorn Graduate Institute in Thailand recently published findings linking pure glyphosate to breast cancer. Their research suggests glyphosate may disrupt natural hormone production. While Gold steered clear of the area, she wondered if the sprayed site could be a hazard for small children, residents who don’t read English, and animals. “Bees don’t read signs,”

she said. The district’s sign included the phone number for the B.C. Drug and Poison Information Centre. Municipalities across B.C. should change their practices of dealing with knotweed, Gold said. “There are a lot of people looking for work. Maybe we could just dig it up manually,” she suggested. Uprooting the district’s biggest invasive plant problem has been tried and failed, according to Pavey. “ThechallengewithJapanese knotweed is that it’s so vigorous it can’t be dug out successfully because the rhizomes spread very quickly underground and they can go as deep as five metres,” she said. “As a region there’s been a movement to chemical treatment of the knotweed because of the challenges of dealing with it with other methods.” Larger knotweed plants are injected with glyphosate while smaller stalks need to sprayed, as injection would likely break the stem, according to Pavey. Glyphosate is the chemical of choice because it tends to break down rather than build up, Pavey said. “It generally does not move. It’s taken into the plant,” she said. “If it was to get into the soil it actually is broken down with the soil.” As a street nurse working in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Gold said she finds beekeeping therapeutic. “The Downtown Eastside is so chaotic and I think that’s why I love looking after bees because they’re just so organized,” she said.

Lynn Valley densification plans questioned Jeremy Shepherd

A Lynn Valley resident says she’s determined to voice her concerns over the looming densification of her neighbourhood directly to District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton — but exactly where and how that meeting will take place has been the subject of some confusion. Lynn Valley is one four district sites slated to take on a high-density mix of shops and affordable housing meant to reel

Residents to meet with mayor to voice concerns over highrises

young people back to the municipality. Walton has agreed to host a meeting at district hall, but retired teacher Joan Birchall is adamant the conference be an informal gathering at the library, more in keeping with the monthly Meet the Mayor sessions. After being told the Meet the Mayor powwows were suspended for the summer, Birchall was eventually offered the opportunity to discuss matters with Walton today, but bristled

when she was told the assembly would be limited to six district residents. “I said, ‘Wait now. Is that the way it’s run at the library? Is there somebody standing at the door saying: “Are you going to visit the mayor? Because he’s already had six people,’” she said. Communication with Birchall has had its challenges, according to Walton’s executive assistant Louise Horton. “It’s not a Meet the Mayor and I’ve told her that right from the beginning,” Horton said, discussing the decision to limit the meeting to six people. “We’re not going to hold a town hall meeting.” Birchall has also objected to requests from district hall asking for the names of those attending and their questions ahead of time. Horton said those are standard requests designed to streamline the meeting. “He’s not head of planning, he doesn’t know every single answer,” Horton said of Walton. “The district is bending over backwards to try to have public engagement and public consultation.” For Birchall, the meeting is an important step in the campaign to preserve Lynn Valley. “We are not uncivilized, we are not going to go in there swearing and shouting and screaming and carrying signs and molesting the mayor. We just want to say what we think and maybe offer a solution or two,” she said. The decision on densification should be the subject of an election-time referendum, according to Birchall. The move to concentrate roughly a quarter of the district’s population growth in Lynn Valley over the next 20 years has already been settled in the official community plan, according to Coun. Roger Bassam. “(The OCP) doesn’t really leave a lot of questions to the imagination around growth rates or how many people we think are coming to the district,” he said. The district is currently mulling options ranging from a dense design of eight storey mid-rises to a more concentrated approach featuring a single 22-storey skyscraper. The district should have included a none-of-the-above option, according to Birchall. But for Bassam, the time to have that conversation was during the two-year period when the district was drafting its OCP. “The question of ‘none of the above’ would’ve been properly asked and answered during the OCP process because that’s when we discussed a one per cent growth rate for the community,” Bassam said. Lynn Valley is currently growing and will likely become home to 5,000 new residents GROWTH in the district over the next 20 years whether is inevitable, says Coun. the district plans for it or not, said Bassam. Roger Bassam. “It’s what we’re already experiencing,” he said. Shortly after her retirement over a decade ago, Birchall hopped into a car with her two cats and ten plants and drove across the country from Ontario to her new home in Lynn Valley. Having lived there for 11 years, Birchall said she’s been left discombobulated at the prospect of her community being overrun by 5,000 new residents. “There’s still only two roads that go in and out of Lynn Valley. There’s still only two bridges that cross the water,” she said. “What are we trying to do to the Lynn Valley corridor? What is the future plan?” Birchall criticized the district for a lack of infrastructure needed to deal with that many new residents. But certain projects, such as replacing Lions Gate Hospital, are already on the drawing board, according to Bassam. The increase in population will have virtually no impact on traffic, according to an Urban Systems study that concluded the worst case scenario for Lynn Valley in the year 2030 would be a delay of approximately 30 seconds for each car heading into the town centre. Birchall said she finds those conclusions difficult to believe. Failure to boost density will result in a very pricey bedroom community, according to Bassam. While a recent anti-highrise meeting drew more than 200 Lynn Valley residents, Bassam said he’s spoken with many residents about the development plans. “Some of them are adamant they just don’t want any growth and change, and a couple of them were quite informed about it and understood the consequences of no growth meaning much higher property taxes for everybody involved.” Bosa is slated to bring its newest proposal for the area to council later this month. “The district is looking for 5,000 people. We will be a very, very small fraction of that,” said former West Vancouver mayor Mark Sager, who is working with Bosa on the project. Bosa had previously advanced a 22-storey tower.

Mulgrave starts on construction Anne Watson

THE ground is broken and construction is underway for a new $23 million senior school at Mulgrave, a private school in West Vancouver.

NEWS photo Lisa King

STUDENTS and other members of the Mulgrave School community got busy with their shovels June 28 at a ground-breaking ceremony for the private school’s new senior school project.

John Wray, head of school, said the new addition is designed to provide world-class facilities for students in grades 10, 11 and 12. “We’re trying to create almost a pre-university type environment for the most senior students at Mulgrave,” said Wray. “The school now has grown to its maximum capacity,” said Wray. He said the school staff also realized the senior students needed additional facilities. The new senior school will feature flexible spaces with walls that can be moved. It will also include a purpose built film studio and an outdoor education room. The 45,000 square-foot school is expected to be complete by the end of October 2014. The school has embarked on a $30 million fundraising drive to pay for the project.

Healing gardens offer sanctuary Dig Deep

Todd Major IF you’re feeling stressed, overworked or suffering from illness, then the garden is the place to go to ease and distract your mind so you can relax, recharge and heal your body and soul.

Throughout history, “healers” have used natural spaces, gardens, plants and human contact to help heal the emotional and spiritual aspects of a person’s health in order to help cure physical illness. Recent research and clinical focus has come to bear on the value of using outdoor spaces, gardens and other forms of nature to help heal people suffering from illness or stress. Perhaps no other theory explains the bond between humans and the natural world more than Edward O. Wilson’s theory of biophilia. His biophilia hypothesis suggests that there is an instinctive bond between human beings and other living systems. (From Wilson’s book The Biophilia Hypothesis). Wilson defines biophilia as “the urge to affiliate with other forms of life.” Such views are relatively new to modern society’s technologically focused approach to health care but beliefs are changing. In her 2004 Masters of Advanced Architecture thesis, from the UBC Faculty of Architecture, Debra Barnes said, “In the past two decades western medicine has slowly begun to rediscover that overall health and well-being are dependant on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of human health.”

THE North Shore Hospice garden is a peaceful refuge for patients and families. For people approaching the end of life, hospice gardens provide an environment for emotional, mental and spiritual reflection. Few other places can provide those four pillars of recovery health like purposebuilt gardens do. While natural spaces like forests and the seaside have amazing recuperative powers, the purpose-built healing garden can be tailormade to meet the many needs of patients, health-care staff, and visitors whose individual needs can be accommodated in the design. It should be understood that healing gardens provide distraction and relief from the stress associated with illness thereby allowing the body to focus on healing. A hospital room can provide for the physical and clinical care needs but those rooms do little to help humans find emotional and spiritual peace and strength. Healing gardens may be used by people of all ages, religions and races who may be afflicted by varying degrees of mental or physical illness, which makes informed design so important. But no single garden should be required

to satisfy too wide a range of requirements. A well-designed healing garden should provide a place for patients and their visitors to relax and interact on a social level. The basic rule here is to avoid making the space so multipurpose that the social function is watered down or lost. Simple group seating, some measure of privacy, perhaps a covered area and a sense of place are a few of the basic tenants of socially designed gardens. Privacy is another important function of a healing garden that allows the patient some time for personal peace. In hospital gardens privacy is difficult to provide. The use of trees to hide windows can be effective. Partially enclosing portions of the garden utilizing hedging or lattice screens can also provide a measure of privacy. The ability for patients to have some control and choice during their garden experience has been found to be important since most patients feel a

loss of control over their illness and their lives while in hospital. Providing patients with choice can include simple things like multiple seating options and walking paths, allowing them the choice to sit in shade or sun and which plants to be near to. Healing gardens must also provide for some level of physical activity which can vary from patient to patient depending on the degree of physical limitation associated with illness. There are many design rules that govern how to construct healing gardens but essentially the garden should allow patients to safely walk without restriction or excessive effort while experiencing the biophilic benefits of the garden. Plant selection is of primary importance because people respond to a wide variety of plant stimuli including fragrance, colour, texture, size and nostalgia depending on whether they experience plants using their sight, sound, touch or smell. Accommodating all of those needs along with designing

a visually pleasing space is no easy task and the garden must be designed to be easily maintained and affordable to build since most healing gardens are built with funds from private donors. Perhaps no other garden is as important as a hospice garden for those people who are approaching the end of life. There is no easy way to pass on but I was recently told that people need closure, peace in their mind and some level of spiritual calm before they can fully leave us. Hospice gardens are designed and built using the same parameters as healing gardens but the hospice garden serves a singular purpose — to provide a comforting environment that provides the opportunity for emotional, mental and spiritual reflection.

Afternoons are quiet times for birds Wild About Birds Al Grass

SUMMERTIME, “and the livin’ is easy” — goes the song — but not for the birds.

For them it’s a busy time of raising young, and some preparing for their long migrations. It’s not uncommon to see fledglings sitting on a tree branch with their wings quivering as they beg for food. Mother ducks like the mallard and common merganser have their work cut out taking care of their broods which may number eight or more ducklings. The big migration wave of spring on the North Shore included warblers, vireos, and flycatchers heading for breeding grounds some as far away as Alaska. But some of these neo-tropical migrants

like the willow flycatcher, black-headed grosbeak, redeyed vireo and western tanager settle here to breed locally. Bird song in the early morning, the dawn chorus, is wonderful to hear with tanagers, vireos and warblers adding their voices to the summer symphony. The redeyed vireo which has earned the name of the “preacher bird” usually sings its joyful notes from the top of a cottonwood tree. Evenings are a great time to listen to the beautiful flute-like voice of the Swainson’s thrush. It also gives a very distinctive “whit” call and other liquid notes. When you visit a sanctuary like Maplewood Conservation Area it’s good to know that in summertime, afternoons are quiet times for birds. That is why bird walks and surveys are scheduled in mornings, and a few in evenings. In the mountains of the North Shore (above 1,000 metres) the lovely voice of the hermit thrush can be heard along with the croaks of ravens and the “chip-chip, chips” of crossbills. The song of the hermit thrush spirals down the scale, the opposite of the Swainson’s thrush. All this goes along with the “hooting” of the sooty grouse (formerly blue grouse) which was split

wild fruits have ripened providing birds and other wildlife with tasty treats. Salmonberry is a relative of blackberries and raspberries. There are two colour forms of

(and maybe a deer) of the salt marsh. Vegetation here is very delicate which is why it is out of bounds except once a year (July) on a specially conducted walk. Watch for martins, swallows and swifts feeding over the salt marsh. In nearby trees keep a look out for a bald eagle, red-tailed hawk, turkey vulture or osprey. On nice sunny days, take some time to watch for colourful dragonflies and butterflies. Butterflies at Maplewood include Lorquin’s admiral, Milbert’s tortoiseshell and the Western tiger swallowtail. Skimmers and darners are some of the fine diversity of dragonflies at Maplewood, their reds, blues and greens flashing in the summer sun. Don’t forget your camera.

salmonberry: red and yellow. Yellow ones never turn red, but are just as tasty. It is interesting to think that in spring salmonberry flowers were an early nectar source for rufous hummingbirds. In feeding on nectar, they helped with pollination ensuring a good fruit crop. Salmonberry thickets provide nesting and cover habitat for birds, and the young leaves are eaten by deer. It’s wonderful the way nature works — the web of life. Purple martins at Maplewood have been busy feeding young. Martins and other swallows catch insects on the wing — even as large as dragonflies. Look and listen for martins at Osprey Point or over the salt marsh. Speaking of birds like swallows, summer is the time to watch for swifts. Their long ‘sickle-shaped’ wings and ‘flutter flight’ help to separate them from swallows. Two species occur on the North Shore — Vaux’s and black. According to scientific classification swifts are related to hummingbirds. Maplewood’s salt marsh is a wonderfully diverse habitat with plants adapted for a briny existence. There are viewpoints where visitors to Maplewood can enjoy birds

Al Grass is a Naturalist with Wild Bird Trust of British Columbia, which sponsors free walks at Maplewood Conservation Area on the second Saturday of every month. The next walk will be Saturday July 13 starting at 10 a.m. – to seek out the treasures of the Salt Marsh. Meet at Maplewood Flats, 2645 Dollarton Hwy. (two kilometres east of the Iron Workers Second Narrows Memorial Crossing). Walks go rain or shine.

Best sites for gadget gossip

IT’S time to confess: For a writer with a column about tech, I’m not very technical.

I don’t write software. I don’t code. I don’t create websites. While I’ve replaced the odd hard drive or video card and installed a few operating systems, I’m not the person you want to call up to fix your computer. I’m no more technically skilled than you. My value comes from too much frustrating time troubleshooting and finding solutions for the frequent problems tech throws at us. Plus I read tech sites and watch tech-related podcasts almost every day. Some people eat up celebrity blogs, I like tech. Here’s a rundown of tech blogs and podcasts you might find helpful, in increasing order of techiness. n General tech news PCMag: A general tech site that covers computers, tablets, phones and home theatre with features, how to advice and reviews. Solid and reliable. Writers to watch include Sascha Segan on mobile phones, Tim Bajarin on tech industry analysis and John Dvorak on crankiness. CNET: Covers the same territory as PCMag with more video content and popular podcasts, which explains its acquisition by CBS a few years back. Slick but does one too many “top 10 tech device” slideshows meant to maximize traffic. Ars Technica: A personal favourite, Ars Technica maintains its roots as an online news source for IT and tech professionals but also offers excellent articles for general readers with tech reviews, advice for topics like online security and science reporting, particularly on climate change. Straightforward, smart and unpretentious. The Verge: Smart, hip and with a beautifully designed site, The Verge is sometimes too smart and hip when it decides to read like a newsletter from an

That said, few other sites match its ability to consistently generate thoughtful features on the intersection of tech, culture and politics. n Web-based tech networks TWiT: Founded by tech broadcasting pioneer Leo Laporte, it’s grown from a one-man shop to a thriving online broadcast network based in California. It features more than two dozen shows available in video and audio form including The McLaughlin Group-style punditry, advice on Windows, iOS and Android devices, home theatre, news and deep industry gossip about Silicon Valley. My favourites among its podcasts include This Week in Tech and Windows Weekly. Revision3: Similar to TWiT except with a broader selection of shows covering popular and geek culture. Its flagship tech show, and the one I watch, is Tekzilla with hosts Patrick Norton, Veronica Belmont and Roger Herron offering advice and answering viewer questions useful to beginners and enthusiasts.

Recent headlines give you a sense of what you’ll find: “Droid Ultra surfaces in leaked photo,” “Video claims to show budget iPhone,” “Microsoft shutting down MSN TV this September,” “Ask Engadget: best smartphone for a teenager,” “Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Play edition: what’s different,” and “NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden offered asylum.” It’s a bit like a buffet.

A22 - North Shore News - Wednesday, July 10, 2013




Mayor Darrell Mussatto Councillor Don Bell Councillor Pam Bookham Councillor Linda Buchanan Councillor Rod Clark Councillor Guy Heywood Councillor Craig Keating Karla D. Graham, CMC

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE is hereby given by the City of North Vancouver, under the provisions of the Local Government Act, that a Public Hearing will be held on MONDAY, JULY 15, 2013 AT 7:00 PM in the Council Chamber, City Hall, 141 West 14th Street, North Vancouver, BC, to receive representations in connection with the following proposed amendment to “Zoning Bylaw, 1995, No. 6700”. ZONING BYLAW 1995, NO. 6700, AMENDMENT BYLAW 2013, NO. 8314 To amend the text of “Zoning Bylaw, 1995, No. 6700” for the following purposes: 1.

Reduce the minimum dwelling unit size for strata and apartment buildings From: 450 square feet per studio 600 square feet per 1-bedroom 750 square feet per 2-bedroom 850 square feet per 3 or more bedrooms To: 400 square feet for all unit types. The per-bedroom dwelling unit sizes were set in 1975, and the proposed change reflects today’s market and changes in affordability, as well as the fact that municipalities do not typically specify per-bedroom minimum unit sizes. Dwelling unit sizes less than the 1975 standards already exist in many of the City Comprehensive Development Zones. This proposed change will normalize dwelling unit sizes in the City such that there is consistency with the existing minimum dwelling unit size for accessory secondary suites.


Permit up to two boarders in all residential dwelling units including multiple unit residential buildings. Currently up to two boarders are permitted within single family homes, except as permitted through a rezoning process. This change is proposed to assist prospective home buyers to obtain financing for their new units, and is in response to public enquiries as to what is permitted within the City’s Zoning Bylaw.


Add a new definition for Lock-Off Unit: “An accessory rental unit forming part of the principle Dwelling Unit accessible through a lockable door, that may contain bedrooms, bathrooms, and a kitchen facility that has direct exterior access.”

Adding the definition does not permit lock-off units in any area of the City. It is a symbolic gesture meant to encourage consideration of this new form of rental housing in multiple unit buildings. Council approval would be required to add one or more Lock-Off Units to any new or existing building, and this approval process would involve a rezoning process and a public consultation process, including a Public Hearing. The three recommended changes arise from a comprehensive review of the Zoning Bylaw to identify ways to encourage housing affordability in the market. The comprehensive review of the Zoning Bylaw ensures it meets the goals and objectives of the community. APPLICANT: THE CORPORATION OF THE CITY OF NORTH VANCOUVER All persons who believe they may be affected by the above proposal will be afforded an opportunity to be heard in person and/or by written submission. Written or electronic (email) submissions should be sent to the attention of the City Clerk at or by mail to City Clerk, City Hall, 141 West 14th Street, North Vancouver, BC, V7M 1H9. Electronic submissions must be received no later than 4:00 pm on Monday, July 15, 2013, to ensure their availability to Council at the Public Hearing. Once the Public Hearing has concluded, no further information or submissions can be considered by Council. The proposed Bylaw and relevant background material may be inspected at the office of the City Clerk between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday, except statutory holidays, from July 4, 2013.

PARENTS seeking local activities for their children this summer have a new resource at their fingertips.

Kids Camps Canada has launched a free online directory that allows parents to access more than 200 available summer camp opportunities in North and West Vancouver. The camps are organized by season, geographical region and activity. Kids Camps Canada also includes pictures, descriptions and contact information for each camp in the specified region. Parents are encouraged to rate their experience using a standard star system and to submit relevant observations and anecdotes. The site was developed by North Shore mom Magda

Figueredo as a result of her own frustration in trying to find information to register her kids in activities. “Even with the help of Google, every time I tried finding locally available options for my son, I ended up with results from Ontario, Nebraska or Timbuktu. The list of math camps alone was endless. Getting the particulars from each website was confusing and took forever. What I needed was something similar to Urban Spoon but for camps instead of restaurants,” she said in a news release. The service currently focuses on North and West Vancouver but Figueredo has plans to expand to other areas of Metro Vancouver in the near future.

Philippe Beha’s colourful, breezy illustrations perfectly accompany a simple story about a little boy’s growing anxiety about the whereabouts of his friend Henry in My Friend Henry. He interrogates a variety of animals, providing an ever more detailed description of his missing friend only to discover Henry has been spotted in the company of not one or two or three but many friends. All is resolved happily when he returns home to find not only Henry but all their mutual friends gathered to wish him a happy birthday. The concept of friendship as inclusive and not exclusive is gently shared with young readers. The simply drawn characters portrayed against bright pastel backgrounds manage to convey a broad range of emotions. A sweet story for the picture book crowd with a very happy ending. Beha has won many awards including the Mr. Christie’s Book Award and the Governor General’s Award. Happy Birthday Hamster also focuses on the theme of angst over a perceived forgotten special day. Hamster accompanies his large friend Dog as he races to finish an endless round of errands. In rollicking verse, Dog asks Hamster to help him choose items from the bakery, the toy store and the party store before the two of them end up at the barbershop for a little pre-party primping. Each time Hamster tells Dog what he really likes, Dog apparently picks something different. Readers will note that the joke is on Hamster as the illustrations show his friends happily purchasing his chosen items behind his back. By the end of the book it is clear to everyone but Hamster that his day is going to have a very happy ending. In fact, the reader is invited on the front endpapers to attend Hamster’s party but to make sure to keep it a secret. Hamster is of course thrilled to discover that the deception was planned in order to surprise him and the day ends with a wonderful party. Cynthia Lord is a Newbery Honor author and Derek Anderson is the illustrator of the delightful Little Quack books written by Lauren Thompson. Happy Birthday Hamster with its oversize format, funny rhymes and delightful illustrations is an inspired partnership. The following picture books about birthdays are also good to share: Angelina’s Birthday by Katherine Holabird A Birthday for Frances by Russell Hoban Fortunately by Remy Charlip Happy Birthday, Dolores by Barbara Samuels Happy Birthday, Moon by Frank Asch Happy Birthday to You, Blue Kangaroo by Emma Chichester Clark Mr. Putter and Tabby Make a Wish by Cynthia Rylant The Party by Barbara Reid Scaredy Squirrel has a Birthday Party by Melanie Watt The Secret Birthday Message by Eric Carle Fran Ashdown worked as the head of the children’s department at the Capilano branch of the North Vancouver District Public Libraries for many years.

CHILDREN build an image of themselves based on what we say or do. If we call our kids lazy, stupid or messy they may actually start to act more that way.

Child’s image built on what we say, do “WERE you a good girl today?”

Listen to parents when they are picking up their children at preschool or daycare and you will invariably hear this comment. Many of the comments we make to our children are not helpful and often harmful. And that isn’t our intention. Take a look at the “good girl” (or boy) question that we so often ask. Think about it. What did we expect? Why do we have to ask? Wouldn’t it be more positive to expect that our child behaved properly and instead just say hello? Let them know that we are pleased to see them. We also use the same expression when we go out with the kids or drop them off at daycare. We remind them to be good. Why not just assume that they will behave? When we use

Parenting Today Kathy Lynn

the good/bad expression our kids can easily start to believe that we will only love them when they are ‘good’ and that worries them. What if they make a mistake and are “bad,” what if they lose their temper, or forget the rules? Once they are around four years old they know they simply can’t measure up all the time. So will we still love them when they are “bad?”

If your children misbehave you will hear about it and can then deal directly with the actual problem. That way your child is learning what is expected of him but also knows that it doesn’t make him a bad person, just a person who blew it once. Our children build an image of themselves based on what we say and do. So if we call our kids stupid, lazy or messy they believe us and are likely to actually act more stupid, lazy or messy because that’s how they believe we see them and what we want from them. A 15-year-old girl was visiting her cousins. She was in the kitchen and her aunt asked her to dry some glasses in the drain board. “Oh no,” she replied, “I can’t do that. I’m really clumsy and I will break them. I’m not supposed to do the dishes.” See Show page 28

Show kids that you’re listening From page 25 Her aunt soon learned that she had been labelled as clumsy and now it hampered her. It took a lot of encouragement to help her learn that she was perfectly capable of handling the glasses and even if she broke one, it was simply an accident and happens to everyone once in awhile. There are also the cases of parents acting shocked and dismayed when their child does something right. “Wow, you actually remembered to take your dirty dishes to the kitchen. I guess hell really has frozen over!” It’s supposed to be funny but for the child it can be a real put down. A simple acknowledgement, and thank you is a lot more helpful. Then he gets the message that we appreciate his action but are not shocked. We knew all along that he could do it. Your child comes home from school upset because he had a fight with his friend. And you start interrogating. “What did you do to make him mad?” or on a more positive note, “what

did he do to you?” Either way it’s not really effective. When we question our kids right off the bat we force them to answer and we control the dialogue. It’s better to simply listen. “I see you’re upset. Do you want to talk about it?” Then keep quiet and listen. No questions or advice. It may be that all he wants to do is rant and then it’s over. If he wants advice he will ask or you can simply ask if he’d like to know what you think about it. You should only ask questions to clarify. “So, if I hear you correctly, he took your lunch from you and danced around the lunchroom teasing you. Is that what happened?” Be positive with your kids and understand that they are actually listening to us. What is it that you want them to hear?

Eatery appeals to pho fan Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard

Chris Dagenais Contributing writer

PHO, the fragrant broth and noodle soup of Vietnam that has achieved global notoriety, is my go-to recovery meal.

Whatever ails me, be it a sore throat, a mental fog following a big night out, or just mid-week weariness, a rich and aromatic bowl of this magical soup sets me straight. Originating in Northern Vietnam in the Red River Delta, pho also found a home in the south following the mass migration of northerners in the wake of the Partition of the country in the mid 1950s. The soup, which is most commonly eaten for breakfast in Vietnam, is now arguably the country’s signature dish. Ken and Thuy Nguyen, husband and wife owners of the new Hanoi Bistro on East Second Street in North Vancouver, recently described to me their own experiences with pho as I sat in the tiny restaurant awaiting my takeaway order. “Pho was a luxury food when I was growing up,” explained Ken. “It was very expensive and most people could not afford it.” He described how his NEWS photo Paul McGrath mother would spring for a hot bowl of pho for him whenever A lemongrass, chicken and shrimp salad, with pho beef soup and Vietnamese iced he was under the weather as a coffee are on the menu at Hanoi Bistro in North Vancouver. young boy. The spicy soup was Mam, the ubiquitous salty and tangy fish sauce that is a staple of a special indulgence, both curative and exciting. Vietnamese cuisine. Today, pho is one of three signature dishes on the Hanoi Bistro As Ken and Thuy prepared my order (they are at once Hanoi menu, alongside Co’m Cari, northern Vietnamese curry, offered Bistro’s owners, managers, chefs, servers, cleaners, marketers, here with either beef or chicken, and nom, a build-your-own accountants, and custodians) I sipped on my new favourite drink salad option that affords diners a chance to sample several of the restaurant’s tasty grilled meats piled atop a bed of carrot and daikon and finished with fresh herbs, fried onions, peanuts and Nuoc See Beef page 32

Melons ripe for summer recipes SWEET, low in calories, thirstquenching, and full of nutrients, melons are at their best this time of year. There are many varieties available other than the ubiquitous watermelon and cantaloupe, such as Canary, Santa Claus, honeydew, Crenshaw and my favourite, the relatively new, supersweet Galia. I think the best method for choosing a good melon is to gently press around the stem end, if it yields easily to pressure then the melon is ripe. It should also smell fragrantly “melony,” if it doesn’t then it’s likely to be tasteless.

Watermelon Towers with Balsamic Dressing This is an unusual combination that makes a pretty and delicious appetizer. 2 cups spring salad mix 18 half-inch thick slices of seedless watermelon 2 logs of fresh goat cheese, sliced into 18 thin rounds (use dental floss to slice it) Good quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste Freshly ground black pepper Place a small handful of salad greens on each of six serving plates.

of summer, the Ca-Phe Cappuccino, a delicious blend of ferociously strong, slightly smoky espresso, foam and condensed milk served over ice. The espresso’s bitter bite was perfectly tempered by the creamy sweetness of the condensed milk and the melting ice cubes. I can’t help but wonder how much longer it will be before the corporate coffee giants co-opt this recipe; Vietnamese iced coffee largely remains a niche specialty in North America despite its simplicity, low cost and utter deliciousness. Hanoi Bistro’s menu is deliberately small, explained Thuy, so that each dish can be treated with respect and all ingredients remain fresh. My food order of four appetizers and two main courses provided me with an in-depth tasting of the restaurant’s offerings. My meal began with grilled prawns that were succulent, tender and garlicky. I pressed Ken to tell me what was in the marinade, but he played his cards close to his chest; these are family recipes, after all, and the list of ingredients for something this delicious is surely a competitive advantage best not widely shared. Crispy, simply seasoned chicken wings were next up, followed by two versions of Cha Nem, crunchy, deep-fried spring rolls. The first versions were filled with assorted vegetables and vermicelli and the second, the house special, with crab meat, shrimp, pork, vegetables and vermicelli. The spring rolls were light, flaky and expertly seasoned. For the main courses, I first sampled a combination plate that came with a choice of rice or vermicelli, a cucumber, tomato and lettuce salad with fish sauce, grilled prawns, tangy, salty sliced pork, and lemongrass chicken, comprised of moist cubes of skin-on chicken breast delicately

The stand-out dish of an already delicious meal was the second entrée, the Co’m Cari Bo, a mild beef curry with rice. I am admittedly not well acquainted with the curries of Vietnam but if Hanoi Bistro’s version is any indication of their typical preparation, I will certainly be seeking them out regularly now. Tender morsels of marbled stewing beef and potato are cooked in a coconut-based curry sauce that is mild on the heat scale but packed with the rich flavours of toasted spices like cinnamon, coriander, cardamom and a number of other ingredients from Hanoi

MGB Not the classic sports car but a combo of melon, grapefruit and blueberries, this is a nice starter for a summer brunch.

Working over a bowl to catch the juice, cut off the rind and outer white membrane of the grapefruit. With a very sharp, small paring knife cut between the membrane and the pulp of each grapefruit section to release fruit into the bowl. Once all sections have been removed, squeeze the membranes to extract all the juice. Arrange the melon slices and grapefruit sections on four serving plates. Remove all but two tablespoons of grapefruit juice from the bowl (use the rest for drinks); add the lemon juice, honey and one teaspoon of the mint. Stir to combine, then gently stir in the blueberries. Spoon blueberry mixture over the melon and grapefruit and sprinkle each serving with the remaining mint.

MP calls for end of human trafficking

MANITOBA MP Joy Smith paid a recent visit to the North Shore in an effort to raise awareness of human trafficking in Canada.

The federal government representative for Kildonan-St. Paul has been recognized as one of Canada’s leading anti-trafficking activists and is the founder of the Joy Smith Foundation, which works to ensure that all Canadians are safe from manipulation, force, or abuse of power, designed to lure and exploit them into the sex trade or forced labour. According to a written statement, Smith visited the Lower Mainland May 10-14 and met with a number of church, non-profit, charity and community leaders, as well as educators and law enforcement officials, sharing her concern for the rise in human trafficking in their communities and across Canada. Her goal was to raise awareness of human trafficking as well as support for the nongovernmental organizations working in the area. On the North Shore, Smith joined representatives of 17 other charities working to end human trafficking in Canada and abroad at the second annual Half the Sky Day at Park Royal organized by a West Vancouver book club ( Two BC Lions CFL football players, Angus Reid and Dean Valli, were also in attendance, as part of the Ending Violence Association of B.C.’s Be More Than A Bystander campaign. Smith also addressed a group of grade 9-12 students at Sutherland secondary, leading a discussion of the importance of being aware of predators on the North Shore and in the Vancouver area. As part of her trip, Smith presented a cheque for more than $5,000 from her foundation to the Salvation Army B.C. in support of its safe house program, which provides shelter, protection and clothing to victims and survivors of human trafficking. Info: ••• Wai Young, MP for Vancouver South (on behalf of Keith Ashfield, minister of fisheries and oceans and minister responsible for the Atlantic Gateway), presented North Vancouver’s Art Childs with a 2012 Small Craft Harbours Prix d’Excellence Award for National Individual Commitment June 21 at Vancouver’s Fisheries and Oceans Canada regional headquarters. According to a press release, the award honours Childs’ devotion to the success of the False Creek Harbour and active role in the Harbour Authority Association of B.C. From 2005 to 2012, Childs was manager of the False Creek Harbour Authority. He was involved in the initiation and management of the Spotted Prawn Festival at False Creek, an annual event that attracts thousands of visitors to the harbour and promotes the local commercial fishing industry. During that period, he also assisted other harbour authorities with their projects. From 2009 to 2012, as president of the Harbour Authority Association of B.C., Childs implemented a number of harbour authority support activities, including training and increasing communications among harbour authorities in the province.

DOUG Baldwin of the Seattle Seahawks hauls in a pass against the San Francisco 49ers. Baldwin will be in West Vancouver with teammates Red Bryant and Richard Sherman this weekend as part of the Seahawks 12 Tour.

meeting stars like Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith and boxer Roy Jones Jr., both Pensacola natives. “They’d always come back and do things with the kids,” he said. “I’ve always been a sports fan since I can remember, especially when I met Emmitt Smith. He came up to us and I was just like, ‘Dangggg, that’s Emmitt Smith.’ It was a very surreal feeling.” The encounters had a profound effect on the youngster. “The impact that they had on me — I remember it so clearly. The few things that they did say about education or about making good decisions or about giving your all, that still stands out for me today.” The tables have turned now and Baldwin is the one dishing out little bits of wisdom. It’s a role he relishes. “It’s an amazing feeling because you know you’re making an impact on those kids’ lives,” he said. “Every word that you say, they’re holding on to. It’s phenomenal for me because I remember being in those exact same shoes. When Roy Jones walked up to us it was like, this is one of the greatest boxers who ever boxed. I was thinking in my head that whatever this guy is saying, I need to focus in on it. He’s proven that he can be successful. When you roll up on the field it’s just an unbelievable feeling because you know those kids are just in love with the moment.” Baldwin may not be a household name like some other flashy wide receivers in the NFL but he may be one of the most qualified to be a role model. He graduated from Stanford with a degree in Science, Technology and Society and was also a member of the national honor society, the math honor society and the Spanish national honor society. He’s a proud member of Nerd Nation, the collective student athletes from Stanford. “We’ve embraced the word nerd at Stanford,” he said with a laugh. Despite his high nerd credentials, however, Baldwin went undrafted after college. Signed as a free agent, he made the

Tucked away on the farthest pitch, just steps away from the wilds of the forest, the North Shore gained its only gold medal of the tournament as the West Van Spuraways claimed the under-15 title with a thrilling 1-0 win over the Powell River Cobras. “From top to bottom there was so little difference between any of the players — that’s what made us so strong,” said West Van head coach Steve Dewar. “We had no super star, everybody came with a different piece to the puzzle and it was just an amazing team effort that got us to win this thing.” Central defender Anniqa Karmali, later named the team’s MVP for the tournament, scored the game’s only goal 30 minutes into the final when her blast from way outside the 18yard box ticked off the goalie’s fingers, bounced off the bottom of the crossbar and nestled into the net. “As I always say to anybody who will listen — shoot at the net and good things will happen,” said Dewar. “She played a huge role in the tournament for us.” Karmali combined with sweeper Quinn Vidalin and goalkeeper Kelsey Sheddy to form the core of a lockdown defence for the Spuraways as they conceded just one goal in four tournament games.

SEATTLE Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin notices two main types of kids whenever he and his NFL buddies show up for an appearance or sports camp: the Go Crazies and the Hang Backs. “It’s weird — some kids will get really excited, jump up and down,” Baldwin told the North Shore News Monday. “And then some kids will just be real calm and just in awe and get real shy and don’t want to talk to you.” Baldwin, a Stanford University grad who joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2011, remembers being one of the quiet ones whenever he’d meet famous athletes. “I was a hang back, take it all in, shy kind of dude,” he said. This weekend Baldwin and fellow Seahawks Red Bryant and Richard Sherman will find out just what kinds of kids we have on the North Shore when they descend upon West Vancouver for several events as part of the Seahawks 12 Tour. The schedule includes ample free opportunities for fans to get up close to the NFL stars, including a tailgate party Saturday afternoon at The Village at Park Royal and a Family Fest all day Sunday in Ambleside Park. Calm or crazy, Baldwin is keen to meet all types of fans at the event. He himself met a lot of athletes as a young kid growing up in Pensacola — though the Florida town only houses approximately 50,000 people, the football hotbed is home to enough pro athletes to seemingly stock an entire NFL team itself.

Baldwin relishes being a role model

From page 39

Seahawks out of training camp and went on to rack up 51 catches for 788 yards, becoming the first ever undrafted rookie to lead his team in both receptions and receiving yards since the 1970 AFLNFL merger. “It’s truly a blessing because I never dreamed of being in the position that I am now,” he said. “Being able to play football at this level, I recognize all the things that I was given by my community, the position that they put me in in order to be successful. In turn, it’s kind of like paying it forward. I want to return that favour, return that responsibility that I feel I have to other communities — not only my community but communities abroad if I have the opportunity to do so.” A university degree and official Nerd Nation status aren’t the only souvenirs Baldwin picked up at Stanford — he also gained an outlook on life that has seen him become far more vocal and outspoken than most of his professional peers. Baldwin’s Twitter feed is full of a lot of the usual fun that athletes engage in but it goes into deeper waters as well, including such things as an anticonsumerism rant that was reposted by a major Seattle newspaper. The thoughtful pro said he’ll never shy away from giving his opinions and allowing others to give theirs. “A part of what I learned at Stanford was just if you have an opinion and you want to express it, you should express it openly but obviously be respectful of others’ opinions, and make sure that your opinion is based on fact,” he said. “I’m outspoken, I’m very opinionated and I like to interact with my fans also outside of football — talk politics, talk anything in general. . . . That’s why I put myself out there at certain times. I want the responses, I want to hear back from the fans and the people in general to get that collective opinion and be able to open my eyes. I hate being narrow-minded so whenever I get the opportunity to hear somebody else’s opinion and have it have an impact on me, I think that’s phenomenal.” Fans will have plenty of opportunities to share their opinions with Baldwin and friends this weekend when the Seahawks 12 Tour hits the North Shore. With a strong Seahawks following north of the border, you can bet a lot of fans will be asking the players about the team’s outlook this season. Last year was a revelation for the Seahawks as they rode a hot streak — as well as the outstanding play of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson — to seven victories in their last eight regular season games and a berth in the playoffs. They knocked off Washington on the road to open the playoffs and then lost by two points to the Falcons in Atlanta. “Being able to go to the playoffs and play two games in the playoffs, that was an unbelievable feeling for me — it was my first time in the NFL playoffs,” said Baldwin. “It was an unbelievable ride. Obviously losing that Atlanta game left a sour taste in our mouths and we want to get back so badly and have an opportunity to compete for that Super Bowl ring. . . . When it comes right down to it it’s going to be the depth of our team and how great the guys that aren’t necessarily in the spotlight are going to be. That’s ultimately what’s going to drive us to get to the Super Bowl, holding up that Super Bowl trophy at the end of the game.” They’ve got the right man to lead them there as well, said Baldwin. Wilson shone last year despite coming into training camp in a position battle with two much more experienced quarterbacks. The rookie quickly established himself as a player to be trusted. “When he first came to rookie mini-camp in the off-season I was already sold on him, just the way that he carried himself, the way that he played the game of football,” said Baldwin. “You could tell he was something special. We got into the season and obviously we had our ups and downs but when we started hitting our stride, a lot of that you have to attribute to his work ethic and the way that he carried himself and the way that he didn’t get bothered by some of the bumps and bruises he had to take at the beginning of the season. Russell was just a phenomenal leader — not only verbally, but he just led by example. He was just being himself, day in and day out. It’s amazing for a rookie to be able to do that, especially at the quarterback position.” After last year’s success the Seahawks won’t be surprising anyone this year, but that’s just the way they want it, said Baldwin. “We’ll continue to grow on that and build on that and only get better,” he said. “I always used to say ‘the sky is the limit,’ but the sky isn’t the limit for us — we have so much that we’re capable of doing. Once we get to the point where we’re back on a roll, I don’t think there’s anything that can stop us.” ••• This weekend’s Seahawks 12 Tour kicks off on the North Shore with a tailgate party from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday at The Village at Park Royal followed by a celebrity flag football draft at the Village Taphouse. Sunday’s events at Ambleside Park include the family fest and a flag football tournament running from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., a Gatorade Junior Training Camp (registration full) at 10:30 a.m. and the celebrity flag football game at 2:30 p.m. Rumoured celebrities include Handsworth head coach and former star quarterback Jay Prepchuk, Vancouver Canucks defenceman Jason Garrison and Real Housewives of Vancouver star Ronnie Negus, among many others.

From page 39

other end of the pitch striker Leah Donen led the way on attack. With a 1-0 lead in the final, the defensiveminded Spuraways were confident that they could hold on but they faced a formidable foe in the Cobras. The same two teams met in the Coastal Cup final with Powell River scoring a 3-0 win. “That’s a really tough team to play against,” said Dewar. “They’re a super tight-knit group.” With time winding down the Cobras looked ready to strike a deadly blow. A rocket of a free kick taken late in the second half appeared to be destined for the back of the net. Coach Dewar, standing right behind the shooter, believed it was on its way in and was already thinking of strategy changes as the ball was in the air. “I actually thought it was going in,” he said. “I was just starting to figure out — ‘OK, now the momentum is going to switch. How do I keep the girls up?’ That kind of goes through your head in the space of about two seconds.” The blast, however, hammered the top of the crossbar, bounced up in the air and landed harmlessly on the back of the net, not in it. “We got lucky,” said Dewar, “but in any championship you need luck.” From then on it was just a few more tense minutes until the final whistle blew and the screaming commenced. Dewar credited his team’s superior depth, along with a little home cooking, for taking them through the grueling four games in four days. “We had 16 players and every one of them could come into the game at any time, anywhere and make a difference,” he said. “I didn’t see any

other team that had that. . . . I think another big thing was no travel, and you’re in your own bed. It made a huge difference.” Similar scenes were playing out all over the sprawling complex, capping off a tournament that was played under beautiful summer skies, eagles soaring above to take in the action. “It was fantastic,” said Dewar. “The thing was run so well. The fields were like golf greens. It was ridiculous. . . . I’ve been to four of these now and this was by far the best fields that I have ever seen. The conditions were amazing.” Dewar even had praise for the referees — something seldom heard in the often hotheaded world of youth sports. “Every game we had had a woman officiating the middle,” he said. “I think that’s great for women’s soccer. I think it shows the girls that there are other things that you can do in the game besides being a player. I thought that was fantastic.” Elsewhere around the park the medals came fast and furious. Richmond toppled Mission 2-0 in the Special Olympics demonstration tournament final. CCB Extreme knocked off Saanich Fusion FC 2-1 in overtime to win the under-18 division. Overtime was needed in the under-17 group as well as the Lakehill Reds scored twice in the extra frame to beat SUS Elite 4-2. The under-16 division also went to extras, eventually ending up in the dreaded shootout with the Williams Lake Storm gaining the final edge for a 2-1 win over the Ladner Vipers. At the under-14 level Vernon United topped Langley FC 2-1 to take the title while Saanich Fusion FC claimed gold in the under-13 division with a 1-0 win over the Marpole Phoenix.

PHILLIPS, IRIS JUL 27, 1920 - JUN 16, 2013 Iris was born on July 27, 1920 in Sault St. Marie, Ontario, where as a young woman, she met Jack. It was love at first sight. They moved west and settled on the North Shore. Although Jack and Iris had no children, they did have "The Kids" their little dogs, Punch and Judy who stole their hearts. Iris and husband Jack, loved to travel, and travel they did. Due to its beauty and the many friends they had made there, Iris considered Mauii, to be her second home. Iris’ home was always inviting. She loved to shop and had a knack for finding just the right thing, for just the right spot. She also took great pleasure in gardening. Her favorite flower was− the Iris. She had a great sense of humor. Iris enjoyed spending time on her balcony watching the ships come and go and chatting about anything and everything. As she neared her life’s end, Iris turned in faith to God and spoke often of speaking with Him in prayer. Iris was predeceased by, her husband Jack, her parents and her sisters Florence and Naomi. We will miss her.

STEYNS, CHELSEA A. AUG 30, 1976 - JUN 23, 2013

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother, wife, daughter, sister, teacher and friend, Chelsea Amber Steyns. Surrounded by family members, Chelsea’s courageous battle with brain cancer came to a peaceful end on Sunday, June 23, 2013. Chelsea was a highly valued member of the North Shore Community where she owned a dance school and inspired thousands of students throughout her nineteen−year career. She was a very special individual who drew people to her through her warm and outgoing personality. There were no bounds to her enthusiasm for life or to the positive way she embraced it. She was loved and cherished by all who knew her. Chelsea is survived by two beautiful sets of twins, Owen & Cooper and Maxine & Cash, husband Todd, mother Judith, father Gary, sister Emily (Theran), brother Dylan (Alicia) and countless friends and supporters. There will be a special tribute to Chelsea and a celebration of her life on Saturday, July 20th at Mulgrave School in West Vancouver. For details and times please go to In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to an account for Chelsea’s children (same website). As she danced in the light with joy, love lifted her. As she brushed against this world so gently, she lifted us.

January 6, 1922 - June 30, 2013

It is with great sadness, but acceptance that we announce the passing of Elma. Elma is reunited with her beloved Tom. Left with many wonderful memories are her children, Judy (Dick), Ann, Brenda (Klaus) and Eric (Sandy). Also touched by this loss are her grandchildren, Rob, Jennifer, Eric, Matthew, Jackie, Katrina and Kelly and great grandsons Brandon and Rayden. Survived by sister-in-law, Elizabeth and Ashforth nieces and nephews. Elma served in the Army and worked at the Min. Of Inf. Elma and Tom immigrated to Canada in 1954 to an unlikely location for a chartered accountant and his wife from England: Quesnel BC. They moved to various locations while Elma kept calm, and carried on. With her inherent Ashforth ability to stimulate discourse in any gathering, “Ellie” was always the bright light in any room she entered. Her reflections engaged even the younger Frys and in-laws. She also had a keen ability to listen, empathize and advise. She made many good friends over the years, hairdressers, restaurateurs, and accountants. In her world, all were invited, and everyone’s experiences were accepted and treasured. This principle is proudly passed on through her children. With typical English esilience, Elmaseldom spke of past hardships. The family would like to thank all the staff at the Kiwanis Care Centre in North Vancouver, for their car and compassion over the past 8 years. We would also like to thank Anna for her devoted companion care. All who knew her will miss her presence. Cheerio, Elma. A celebration of life will be held at a later time, however it would be appreciated if friends would share their personal reflections of Ellie on the Memorial Page of this paper Donations in lieu of flowers to Kiwanis Care Centre.
