Robbery spree nets five years

American man sentenced for string of grocery store holdups JANE SEYD

A 69 year-old man who deserted from the U.S. Air Force four decades

ago will be spending his last years in Canada in jail after being sentenced Monday for a series of brazen armed robberies on the North Shore and

in Vancouver. Thomas John Stone will spend almost three years in jail, on top of time he’s already been in custody, for a series of gunpoint holdups at grocery stores committed between March 31 and Oct. 26, 2012. Stone, also known as Thomas John Schwartz,

served in the U.S. Air Force as a staff sergeant before deserting to Canada in June 1972 after becoming disillusioned with his country’s role in the Vietnam War. By all accounts, he lived a quiet life in Squamish for many years under the assumed name Thomas Stone.

Stone told authorities he committed the holdups out of financial desperation, after racking up massive credit card debts and finding it impossible to support himself. Crown counsel Lindsay Herron said Stone spent time casing the grocery stores he targeted and

rehearsing the robberies before committing them. On March 31, 2012 he walked into Safeway on Marine Drive in West Vancouver, wearing a ball cap and glasses, brandished a gun at a clerk and said, “If I don’t see the See Gun page 11

RHOV star’s daughter hit in drive-by shooting JEREMY SHEPHERD

RealityTV performer Mia Deakin was in hospital being treated for gunshot wounds Sunday following a drive-by shooting at a Vancouver gas station. Deakin, a regular on Real Housewives of Vancouver, was hurt after shots were fired from an SUV on East Hastings Street near Vernon Drive.The shooting, which left Deakin wounded and another man with minor injuries, was targeted, according to police. Deakin is currently in stable condition. Deakin is the daughter of reality TV star Jody Claman, who sparred with the other Real Housewives for two seasons prior to the show’s cancellation. Lark Productions, which produced the show, issued a statement offering support. “We wish Mia a very speedy recovery and our thoughts are with the Claman family at this time.”

Bait car snags would-be thieves JEREMY SHEPHERD

That’s too much for a sensitive island, said Scholefield. “We want to see the land preserved.” According to the Ministry of Forests, the woodlots are intended to be small-scale forestry operations, often run by local residents under a 20-year lease and have limits on how much timber can be logged each year. According to the ministry, the annual combined cut in the two woodlots would be 6,000 cubic metres.

West Vancouver police used a bait car to reel in a couple alleged thieves Sunday. Two Vancouver cyclists were passing through West Vancouver at 5:30 a.m. when a parked car caught their eyes, according to police. While the duo rummaged through the car’s contents — eventually snagging a GPS and a cellphone — West Vancouver police sped to the scene. The 38-year-old man and 35-year-old woman pedaled away on their bicycles but police caught up and arrested the duo approximately one block from the bait. The takedown was a “good use of technology,” according to West Vancouver Police Department Const. Jeff Palmer. Police are recommending charges of theft and possession of stolen property. The theft was recorded with a hidden camera, resulting in: “those bait car videos that everybody loves,” said Palmer. Both suspects are scheduled to appear in North Vancouver Provincial Court Aug. 13. Often equipped with property that can be traced, including commonly stolen items such as smartphones, laptops and credit cards, bait cars are rotated throughout West Vancouver

Logging on Gambier opposed

Cottagers fight creation of woodlots near recreation area JANE SEYD

A group of North Shore residents with summer cottages on Gambier Island are raising concerns about plans to log a large swath of forest they say could ruin recreational values on the island. “It’s the wilderness heart of Howe Sound, and a prime recreational jewel,”

said Peter Scholefield, a West Vancouver resident and president of the Gambier Island Conservancy, a group opposed to the logging. Scholefield’s is one of several hundred families who make up the majority of Gambier Island’s parttime residents, most of whom are from North and West Vancouver. Many of them have been coming to the island

for generations to enjoy its beaches, hiking trails and lakes. Scholefield said residents were shocked when they learned by accident this spring that the Ministry of Forests was putting two large areas in the northeast corner of the island up for bid as Crown woodlots. The two woodlots include areas of popular hiking trails, a community watershed, patches of old growth forest and Gambier Lake, a prime recreational destination on the island. “Why they would

put in a woodlot that encompasses that lake is beyond me,” said Scholefield. The area is close to a children’s summer camp and to outstations of the Burrard and Thunderbird yacht clubs. Combined with an existing woodlot, if the new woodlots are approved, it would see 25 per cent of the island under active logging, said Scholefield. The two new woodlots, which would be side by side, total 1,326 hectares, while the current woodlot is 400 hectares.

Children’s chalk mars Victoria Park cenotaph BRENT RICHTER

:Z1d 21-__ *W`-U`) 1\` )`_-*`) V`V83Z-W 8U F0`2)-d/ akcFc BRENT RICHTER

Just days after marking the 70th anniversary of D-Day, North Shore branches of the Royal Canadian Legion were dismayed to see one of North Vancouver’s most prominent cenotaphs defaced. A member of Lynn Valley’s 114 branch noticed the markings — mainly scribbles and what appears to be a scorecard made in children’s sidewalk chalk — drawn

onto the cenotaph in Victoria Park on Saturday and alerted her branch president. Even though the markings were apparently made by children and easily washed away, it is still unacceptable, said Rhonda Thomas, president of North Vancouver Legion 118. “Where were the parents? And why would you let your kids do that in the first place? I don’t understand. That’s a monument. That’s for veterans for goodness

sakes. It’s not for playing around by children,” Thomas said. “It shouldn’t be defaced in any way shape or form by anybody. Whoever did this should take responsibility and come up and say they made a mistake.” City of North Vancouver staff cleaned the memorial off on Tuesday morning. Seeing any memorial defaced “cuts to the bone,” said Bill Calder, Lynn Valley Legion 114 president “It’s very demoralizing

to us,” Calder said. “Legions are a promoter of remembrance and we work very hard to keep that in the forefront. Particularly, on Nov. 11 but all year round there are different events that take place that promote remembrance and we like to ensure our memorials reflect the dignity they deserve.” The incident underscores a failure by parents to teach their children about the sacrifices that cenotaphs represent, according

to Calder. “Even children who have a lack of knowledge, they have parents. They should be teaching them what the importance and value of those monuments are to those that have given us a life we seem to enjoy and take, too often, for granted,” he said. The recent passing of the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy makes the chalk all the more disrespectful. “If anybody needed a memory jog, that was certainly it,” Calder said.

Gavel to fall T

he trials of Trinity Western University are a reminder of the importance and dangers of religious freedom. TWU’s law school dangles in limbo at press time as thousands of B.C. lawyers cast votes on the program’s accreditation. Legally, the decision may hinge on a 2001 B.C. Supreme Court Case in which TWU’s teacher training program won certification despite objections over the school’s famed covenant. That covenant, binding both students and staff, forbids sex outside marriage and defines marriage as a sacred relationship between man and woman. After the Law Society of Upper Canada in Ontario voted against TWU’s accreditation, essentially barring grads from practising in Ontario, the school shot back. Representatives argued that highly qualified graduates would be excluded — simply for holding religious values.


This argument would be more convincing if the school hadn’t kiboshed a filmmaking course solely because prospective — and very qualified — instructor Kevin Miller doesn’t believe in hell. Or to be more accurate, he doesn’t believe in their version of hell. TWU’s supporters have also trumpeted the importance of pluralism, accepting a multitude of views. This also rings false. Would TWU’s concept of pluralism include sharia law, despite its encroachment on women’s rights? Religious freedom is an important value, but it’s not our only value, particularly when it infringes on the rights of others. We believe love between consenting adults is more important than the right to restrict love between consenting adults. We hope B.C.’s attorneys make an ethical choice, because there are two things this province doesn’t need more of: lawyers and intolerance.

Parent support for teachers heartfelt Dear Editor: I am a teacher in West Vancouver who is frustrated about the current situation in B.C. education. I don’t enjoy walking the picket line, and I wish there was another way to ensure adequate government funding to our school boards. It is frustrating that the senior members of our government and our union can’t reach a compromise. Our educational leaders should be setting an example of how to collaborate on governing and delivering a system worthy of our multilingual, multi-talented children. Canada is a leader in 21st century education, but our leaders can’t agree on how to best serve our clients. Even though our

government’s actions (stripping the contracts that protected class size limits) have been deemed unconstitutional, we are still living under their rules. We need to “bargain” just to get back to where we were 12 years ago. Most teachers I know are willing to strike because we believe it is the only way to ensure classes that are too large, or have too many designated students will be brought back to manageable numbers. One positive outcome of this strike has been the support of our parent community and school neighbourhoods. It is heartening to have articulate, meaningful conversations with parents and colleagues about what they think is best for


students. It is uplifting to be greeted by friendly waves and tooting horns when cars drive by our picket lines. Several times during our shifts, parents have brought coffee, muffins, cookies and rolls, along with passionate accolades for our efforts

in speaking up for public education. I also appreciate the reflections of intelligent journalists, such as Keith Baldrey (May 30 North Shore News column), who are painting a multilayered picture of this issue, referring to the

mistrust and disrespect between the ministry and the BCTF as cause for the impasse. Perhaps it is time for a professional (neutral) mediator to take the lead at the bargaining table. Doni Gratton West Vancouver

Homeowner grant now out of reach Dear Editor: Tired of Christy Clark’s smiling face? Well, here’s a reason you should be. I discovered today that the basic grant for city taxes or threshold in 2013 was $1,295,000.This year’s 2014 threshold has been reduced to $1,100,000. That means that if your property is valued at

$1,214,000 you do not qualify, My assessed value just so happens to have been reduced to $1,214,000 so I do not qualify. Last year I received the total grant, this year nothing. I wonder how many other homeowners will fall into this $1,214,000 range? On the North Shore it’s probably the majority.

Should be interesting to find out. So that’s how the Christy Clark government is going to balance the budget, not from brilliant budget manipulation, but off the backs of thousands of homeowners who are going to pay on July 2 and don’t realize it yet. Howard Whishaw West Vancouver

Opposing amalgamation serves mayor’s own interests Dear Editor: Re. The A-Word (North Shore News, June 8). So let me get this straight. Darrell Mussatto, who wants to be the longestserving mayor in North Vancouver history and who could potentially be out of a job in an amalgamated North Vancouver is against amalgamation? Wow. Colour me surprised. I think Mayor Mussatto should stop looking to further his own interests and instead look to serving the people who elected him. Dave Iverson North Vancouver

Giant Mine story a toxic cautionary tale “The GiantYellowknife Gold Mine began production in the 1940s in a region that is unusually rich in gold-bearing rock. Unfortunately, that rock also contains high levels of a naturally-occurring variation of arsenic — arsenic trioxide.” —Norm Zigarlick, April 2014 Most of the stories Norm Zigarlick has told me are exactly as one might expect from someone who has worked in underground mines, as a bush pilot and on the land with many First Nations people. A fascinating blend of a lifetime of experiences and campfire tales that grow taller with each telling, most are colourful threads that make up the tapestry of Canada’s Far North. But the history of a 60year accumulation of toxins abandoned by a succession of owners at the Giant Yellowknife Gold Mine is deadly serious.

Elizabeth James

Just Asking

It is a tale the Dene First Nations wish had never happened in the region they and their ancestors have called home for centuries. Starkly undressed, this is a story about one country’s accumulation of a toxin in large enough proportions to contaminate the 10th largest lake in the world. The country is Canada. The toxin is arsenic trioxide — a byproduct of the Giant gold-mining operations just a stone’s throw from two of the largest Dene communities.The lake is

Great Slave Lake and its entire river system. The bottom line of this story, however, is less about how the toxin came to be there, than to ask when Canada’s federal government will grasp the nettle to ensure that a 237,000-tonne dump can safely be defused or eliminated and prevented from ever happening again. The stage was set in 1935 when, according to the historical timeline detailed by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (aandc-aandc., BurwashYellowknife

Mines Ltd. staked 21 mining claims, including the future Giant Mine. The pace accelerated two years later whenYK Gold Mines Ltd., acquired the Burwash assets. But it was not until 1948 when the first gold bar was poured and mine tailings were dumped into nearby Back Bay, that the disturbing story was born. All told, between 1935 and today, the saga only partially covered by the official timeline details poisoned drinking water, community health problems

and contamination of soil and onsite buildings. Toxic airborne emissions were recorded at 7,500 kilograms/day and arsenic trioxide dust was pumped into underground storage chambers in the hope that permafrost would contain it. Corporate takeovers, receiverships and government-to-government transfers of jurisdictional management, regulations and liabilities were the order of the day. There is no doubt that the Canada we enjoy today was built largely by the

mining, forestry and other resource industries. But the history of the GiantYellowknife Mine is a blueprint that shows why people today have such litle trust that corporations will put citizens’ well-being ahead of shareholders’ profits, or that government regulators will protect the best interests of Canadians and their environment.

Poisonous legacy lives on

From page 7

Environment Canada, the government of the Northwest Territories and the City ofYellowknife co-hosted “a technical workshop to discuss the management of arsenic trioxide at Giant Mine.” But it was not until 2000, when SRK Consulting was named technical advisor to Aboriginal Affairs, that one senses federal agencies had awakened to the seriousness of the situation. Four years later, Aboriginal Affairs decided to “proceed with the Frozen Block Method as the preferred long-term

management alternative for storage of arsenic trioxide dust.” Yet even then, it would take nine years before the 245-page, June 2013 decision of the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board was released, which stated in part, “it is the board’s opinion that the proposed Giant Mine Remediation Project is likely to cause significant adverse impacts on the environment, including [those] arising from the effects of past activities.” The report then proposed nine measures aimed at mitigating those effects and

ended by recommending the project be approved subject to those measures being implemented. As this column winds down, concern is still being expressed that relying on permafrost and man-made coolant devices for 100 years may not be enough to prevent the highly-soluble arsenic trioxide from leaching into and poisoning Great Slave Lake and other natural watercourses that surround the mine-site. After 60 years and millions spent on committees, studies and 300-page technical consulting advice, it is disturbing that neither

Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada Minister Bernard Valcourt nor the federal government have signed off on the $1-billion Mackenzie Valley clean-up plan for the Giant Mine legacy. Zigarlick believes that, “according to current health standards, at 60 per cent purity there is enough arsenic trioxide in that pile to kill the population of the planet many times over.” Prime Minister Harper and his minister have the science on their desks — the Dene and Canadian taxpayers are asking, “Why the delay?”


Sculpture served its purpose as protest art Dear Editor: In response to Madeleine Adeoba’s letter (Sculpture Offends, May 25), and her outrage at George Rammell’s sculpture of the Capilano president: If George made that sculpture, then you can bet there is a good reason for it. Your letter was so full of vitriol, arrogance and unfounded entitlement.You obviously don’t understand the concept of protest art. It got into the news, people started looking into the issues, and it draws heat on the people involved — it worked perfectly! If it weren’t for people like

Rammell who are willing to stick their necks out, then the world would be in much worse shape. I had the privilege of being his student in the mid ‘90s and his dedication to art and teaching makes him stand above all the rest in my mind. I owe him a debt of gratitude for everything he taught me. I would also put money on it that the vast majority of his past students would agree. If you knew him you would eat your words. PS: He is also a very mellow cat. Andrew Bryden Hood River, Oregon

Like a cassette player evolving into an iPod, the provincial government’s 1980s-era ski resort policy is getting an update. Ski resorts nestled in public parks such as Cypress and Mount Seymour, as well as Manning Park, are in need of new permits that account for the burgeoning popularity of snowshoeing and mountain biking as well as the public appetite for year-round use, according to a release from the Ministry of Environment. The province sold the resorts to private interests in 1984, and subsequently issued 50-year permits that failed to anticipate both changes in climate and the need for frequent infrastructure investments. Resort operators also can’t apply to extend their permit until 40 years have elapsed, creating uncertainty about the chances of recouping investments in infrastructure, according to the ministry. The new permits are intended help the ski resorts remain viable businesses while developing a land use policy that values both the environment and recreation. The decision to approve

District staff estimate the two new woodlots would provide between four and five jobs, said ministry spokesman Greig Bethel. Six bids were received on each of the woodlots, ranging from a low of $100,000 to a high of $488,000. Bethel said any successful bidder must complete a management plan, which is made available for public review and addresses issues like management of watershed, riparian areas and recreation areas. But islanders say they have little confidence in that process, and aren’t happy that they weren’t consulted before the ministry advertised the two new woodlots. “I think they need

Snell said the plan for the logging has ignored the impact on the island. “This is one of the last remaining wilderness areas close to Vancouver,” he said. He added there’s no guarantee about how much timber would be taken out each year, because woodlot operators have flexibility as long as the annual cut averages out over five years. “We’re not against forestry or economic development of regions,” he said “but you have to take into account an impact on an ecosystem.” Recently some Gambier residents met with Ministry of Forests officials along with political

representatives including West Vancouver Sea-to-Sky MLA Jordan Sturdy to discuss concerns. Kate-Louise Stamford, the island trustee for Gambier, said most people on the island would prefer to see the area preserved for wilderness conservation — or at least see the woodlots significantly reduced in size. While between 100 and 200 people are fulltime Gambier residents — including the logger who operates the existing woodlot — about 85 per cent of islanders are cottagers, said Stamford, who don’t want to see its beauty destroyed. “I recognize that we’re part of B.C. and B.C. has logging as a resource,” she said. “We do have a woodlot on our little island.” But with the addition of the new woodlots, “it’s too big, too much,” she said.

and spoke to the judge. He said he decided to commit the robberies after suffering severe financial setbacks in his late ’60s. “I had no savings. I was still deeply in debt,” he said. Stone said he tried to rationalize the robberies, by thinking he was robbing from companies, not terrorizing people. “I knew it was wrong,” he said. “Many good people were victimized in ways they didn’t deserve.” Stone’s defence lawyer described the holdups as “an act of desperation.” Stone has no previous record. In sentencing Stone, North Vancouver provincial court judge Steven Merrick said Stone would be facing five years in jail if he hadn’t been in custody for a significant time already. He is expected to be sent back to the U.S. after he serves his sentence.

money I’m going to drill you.” He got away with $1,200. He did the same at SuperValu in Edgemont on April 14, 2012, telling the clerk, “Don’t make a fuss or I’ll shoot you.” One of the more dramatic holdups happened at the Queensdale Market on Lonsdale Avenue where a store manager grabbed one of Stone’s wrists and wrestled with him after being threatened with the gun. The manager punched Stone in the face several times before Stone hit him in the head with the gun and ran away. The manager required nine stitches to his head. Stone’s biggest haul came after he went behind the customer service desk at Extra Foods on Vancouver’s Kerr Street

and pointed a handgun at the clerk, saying “Take me to where you’ve got the money.” That time he made off with $13,000. Stone also robbed an IGA in Vancouver and a Choices Market in Burnaby before his robbery spree ended. After police in the Lower Mainland appealed for help from the public, they got a tip pointing to Stone. Two days after police appealed for information, on Dec. 15, 2012, Stone tried to cross the border in a taxi and was arrested by U.S. authorities. He later agreed to be brought back to Canada. Herron told the court the handgun used in the robberies was never recovered. “Nobody knew if it was real or not,” she said. “The victims thought it was real.” Before receiving his sentence, Stone stood up

Father’s Day gift ideas Barb Lunter

Sunday, June 15 is Father’s Day and it’s the one day you can let your dad know how much he means to you. Those early morning hockey practices, lastminute bike repairs and lemonade stands all wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for good ol’ dad. This year, let your dad know how much you appreciate him with some fun and clever gift ideas tailored just for him. Every so often I come across a little gem of a store that carries some interesting and unique items. LaLa’s in Deep Cove is one of our North Shore treasures and this year they have some pretty great gift ideas for Father’s Day. Every dad needs an apron for the barbecue. Canadian designer Wendy Tancock’s tees and aprons are a definite hit this year. Choose from a variety

Aprons are black with white writing and sell for $30. Bourbon Balls by Ruth Hunt Candies are a definite bestseller this year. It has been suggested that Bourbon Balls were created back in 1938 when a dignitary remarked that candy and fine Kentucky bourbon should be blended together to make a delicious treat. The result was the bourbon ball and they have been selling for

years since. Ruth Hunt started out in 1921 selling small candy confections from her home and her very successful business grew from there. These candies are sold in three sizes of boxes at LaLa’s and sell for $3, $7 and $13, respectively. Bartending anyone? We all know our dads love their bars. This year, why not give him some great toys for his bar area? With a tongue-in-cheek play in mind, Wild Eye Designs has come out with a line of pseudo-

prescription bar products for Father’s Day. Dad can sip his favorite scotch from the flask or mix his favorite martini in the special shaker. Enjoy shooters from their line of glassware as well. The flask sells for $25, shot glasses $25/set and the martini shaker is $30. Happy Father’s Day! Barb Lunter is a freelance writer with a passion for home decor, entertaining and floral design.

A guide to beefriendly gardening Each year roving apiculturists truck millions of bees around North America from farm to farm providing bees to pollinate crops. Whether we realize it or not, humanity is dependant on the tireless pollination work that bees provide in agriculture.Without bees, we may not have strawberries, almonds, apples and many other fruits and vegetables to eat. Starting from two hives that arrived in 1858, B.C. now has more than 2,300 beekeepers, 47,000 colonies and approximately two million bees. Bee pollination accounts for $250 million of fruit, berry and canola production in B.C. and $1.5 billion of agricultural production in Canada. B.C. also annually produces $10 million of honey in different flavours as well as other hive products. Interestingly, May 29 was declared Day of the Honey Bee by B.C. Minister of Agriculture Norm Letnick to celebrate our beekeeping heritage, according to the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture website, Over the past decade there have been numerous stories in the news about bee colony collapse disorder, Varroa mite attacks on bees, pesticide kills of entire colonies and the gradual loss of millions of bees around the world. I am not going to go into the details of those problems that I believe are directly related to widespread pesticide use in agriculture and horticulture. If you want detailed information on the problem

Todd Major

Dig Deep

I recommend you visit the TED website and watch the insightful presentations of two leading scientists involved in bee research. The first presentation is called Why bees are disappearing, by Dr. Marla Spivak from the University of Minnesota.The second presentation, A plea for bees, is given by Dennis Vanengelsdorp, assistant professor of entomology at the University of Maryland. Each presentation is 15 minutes long and provides insightful and sciencebased discussions of the problems surrounding the ongoing death of bee colonies. Local bee keeping information can be found at northshorebeekeepingclub. can also visit the B.C. Honey Producers Association website at for more information. Politicians who carelessly legalize pesticide use and chemical companies that manufacture pesticides are directly responsible for the worldwide death of millions of bees despite the chorus of voices sounding alarm bells. A case in point,

the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was embarrassed in 2010 over a leaked document showing the agency gave conditional approval of an insecticide, despite warnings from the agency’s own scientists that the chemical was toxic to bees.The chemical manufacturer lobbied for registration of the chemical. I did not mention the company name because suing people is how chemical companies stifle opposition to their selling of poison.You may think such problems only happen in America but any pesticide registered in the United States is almost always given approval in Canada, because Canada is considered by chemical companies to be the “51st state” when it comes to pesticide registration. It is people who buy pesticides that drive up earnings for chemical companies. If we exercise our choice not to buy, then harmful products will not be manufactured. So if you like eating apples or tomatoes and think bees are important to our food security, here are some practises you can implement at home to help bees survive. Provide diverse food sources: Bees need to feed every day so there must be an abundance of food available to sustain them. Plant annuals, perennials, flowering shrubs and trees to bloom at different times of the year to provide ongoing food sources. It is more important to have See Give page 20

Apple and Google vie for consumers

Canada now has three main digital entertainment competitors In my last column I noted how the arrival of Google’s online music store in Canada signalled the growth of Google Play as a viable iTunes

has three main competitors for comprehensive digitalbased entertainment: Apple, Google and Microsoft. Apple of our eye Apple remains in the lead for content. iTunes offers music, movies, TV and books and iPhones and iPads can access a universe of news apps. Looking specifically at TV, the market which Google just entered, iTunes has a larger selection than either Google Play or Microsoft’s Xbox Video store. Its selections are nicely laid out and curated. Prices are market standard. iTunes’ music offerings are excellent but iTunes does not offer a streaming subscription service yet in Canada as it does in the United States. I don’t have any experience with its ebooks, but the selection looks reasonable. Google Play, which was nonexistent only a few years ago, is in solid second place for Canadians. Its video offerings are not as extensive as iTunes but it has all the mainstream releases, good prices and curation is on level with Apple. Its music store looks very good, with good pricing, and offers a subscription streaming music service for $10 a month, or $8 a month if you sign up before the end of June, with a reported

Practical Geek access to 25 million songs. Its Newsstand is a standalone platform combining newspapers and magazines in one central app, which some people might prefer to individual apps for their news reading. I’ve used Google’s books platform on Android and like it, although I prefer my Kobo for reading. Microsoft takes third place for content. Its movie selections are comparable to Google Play, but as with Google its TV selections lag behind iTunes. Its once stupidly high prices for videos have been lowered to be in line with iTunes (a lesson that competition is important). Microsoft has no ebooks platform and no equivalent to Newsstand, although Windows 8 devices, from computers to phones, have well-designed apps for news, travel, health and food — all curated, drawn from various sources and free. Where Microsoft excels

Playing with Google Few people are purist in their choices and most households freely mix and match services and devices. Given the dominant market share of Windows computers, it’s likely most iPad or iPhone users have a Windows PC. There’s a fair chance they have an Android phone. And instead of Apple, Microsoft or Google, they get their music from Rdio, Slacker or Songza. Or they use all of these sources at different times, which is the way it should be. That means aside from content, the consumerfriendly provider is available across as many devices and platforms as possible and here Google takes the prize. Its video, music and books apps are found on both Android and iPhone and iPad and available to PC and Mac users through the web. Apple, which makes money by getting consumers to buy devices, limits content to Apple devices and iTunes on PC and Mac. (The exception is music downloads, which can be played anywhere.) Even Microsoft, lagging in content, is working hard to See Tablets page 20

Give bees a place to call home From page 15 something blooming versus choosing only specific beefriendly plants. However, if specificity is your thing, try planting foxgloves, rhodos, poppies, chives and daisies to name a few. Interestingly, dandelions bloom early

and continuously so they are a good food source for bees.To prevent dandelions from spreading, regularly deadhead them like any other perennial. Supply a water source: Bees need clean water to drink.The water does not have to be deep, so an oak

barrel, pottery basin or even a shallow pond can provide enough water. Rain water harvesting is a good way to provide water for beneficial insects and bees. Stop using all pesticides: I don’t care if you have weeds, a bug on your plants or some mildew problem on roses, stop buying and using pesticides and think about the bees and your children’s future. I do not use pesticides and my garden is as beautiful as any garden in the province. All pesticides are toxic to bees, including weed killing herbicides. Allow bees to have a home: I know this is a difficult concept to implement in a residential setting. However, no home — no bees.Tolerance is important for this practice to work. Parks, wild spaces and roadside hedgerows can accommodate wildlife stumps, rough brush, large trees and old perennial stalks to provide bee harbourage.

Parents need sensible plans, not metaphors What sort of parent are you? Helicopter, bubblewrap, tiger, dolphin or boss? These are only a few of the designations being placed on parents these days and not only that, tiger, dolphin and boss parents are the subjects of current parenting books. In the interest of full disclosure, I have written three parenting books and none of them uses a metaphor to describe parenting. My focus is simply on helping parents develop the skills and understanding to allow them to raise capable young men and women. Period. The Tiger Mom is the recent book that has received the most notice. Based on the book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua, it is the story of one Chinese mom and her two daughters and her experiences. She says that the children of tiger moms are not allowed to: • attend sleepovers • have play dates • be in a school play • complain about not being in a school play • watch TV or play computer games • choose their own extracurricular activities • get any grade less than an A

Kathy Lynn

Parenting Today • not be the No. 1 student in every subject except gym and drama • play any instrument other than the piano or violin • and must play the piano or violin And that, I would guess, is as far as most people got in the book. She believed that being a tiger mom would be best for her children. She not only followed the above rules, she was actively involved in every aspect of the kids’ lives and pushed them to be the very best. And they were the very best. And it worked until her second daughter rebelled and refused to play by the rules. This book is really about a mom learning how to listen to her children and support them in their passions. But let’s face it, it also put the term tiger mom on

the map. And that led to the book The DolphinWay:A Parent’s Guide to Raising Healthy, Happy, and Motivated Kids —Without Turning Into a Tiger by Shimi K. Kang, M.D. Kang uses her experience as a mom as well as her profession as a psychiatrist in this book. In simple terms, this book is all about maintaining a healthy balance in your life and the lives of your children. She uses the metaphor of the dolphin throughout and presents a healthy parenting style. She acknowledges that there is a lot of pressure on parents to push children to succeed. She points out, for example, that Baby Einstein videos were touted as essential for babies. The irony is that they may have done more harm than good. One study that she mentions shows that infants who watched the videos learned seven fewer words a day than those who did not watch the videos. She notes that parents are tending to over-schedule their children, over-protect them and pushing them to win. But dolphins are balanced in their lives and activities. Because of this, dolphin parenting can take parents

off the hook for being too busy and too involved. Everyone wins. And then there is the corporate model.What if we looked to the workplace to model raising our children? Kathy Buckworth did just that with the book I Am So The Boss OfYou:An 8-Step Guide to GivingYour Family the “Business.” It was an interesting take but I found the book to have an underlying nastiness. She mentions, more than once, that she unfortunately can’t fire her kids. I think she sees that as humour. I didn’t. The point is that we don’t need metaphors.We need to raise our children to become capable young men and women. As Dr. Kang says throughout The Dolphin Way, it’s all about balance. In my view, when we have a parenting plan that makes sense and when we give our children unconditional love, live in a mutually respectful environment and encourage our kids, we will all be healthier and happier.

WHO: City of North Vancouver WHEN: Monday June 16, 2014 at 6:00 pm

Council Chamber at City Hall, 141 West 14th Street North Vancouver, BC

WHY: To receive representations in connection with the following proposed amendment to “Zoning Bylaw, 1995, No. 6700”, which will have the effect of reclassifying the said property:

FROM: CD-057, CD-323 and M-2 (General Industrial) TO: Comprehensive Development Zone 642 (CD-642) This zoning amendment would allow for public open space and Commercial, Waterfront, Marine and Civic uses (including a proposed gallery and accessory banquet use). The proposed zoning designation would limit the building height on the site to a maximum of 15 metres (49.2 feet). The proposed amendment to “Heritage Designation Bylaw, 1997, No. 6945” would result in the continued protection of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway Station building, but would no longer specify the Foot of Lonsdale as a Designated Heritage Property, in order to allow for the possible relocation of the building to an alternative site. This Public Hearing is held under the provisions of the Local Government Act. Persons who believe they may be affected by this proposal will be heard in person and/or by written submission. Send submissions to the City Clerk at or by mail. Electronic submissions must be received no later than 4:00pm on Monday June 16, 2014. Once the Public Hearing has concluded, no further information or submissions can be considered by Council. The proposed bylaws and material may be viewed at City Hall from June 5, 2014 or, if you wish to view the material online please visit Please direct all inquiries to Michael Epp, Planner II, at or phone 604.982.3936.

Father’s Day

A daughter’s letter to her dad JANINE MACARTHUR Contributing writer

My dad is an outdoorsman, expert pie baker, mentor, faithful husband, and amazing dad.

His name is Jay MacArthur. He is the kind of dad who truly cares for his two daughters. In fact, he is the best father I know (although my father-in-law is up there too). My dad spent his early

years on the North Shore living in a house that my grandpa built with his own hands on Mount Seymour Parkway. Later, he moved to Richmond and after that he attended UBC, graduating in electrical engineering. My dad and my fantastic mom, Lucy, moved to North Vancouver to raise their family a couple of years before I was born. These days, my dad works during the day and is an adventurer at night. Every chance he gets after work he goes hiking, skiing, mountain climbing, windsurfing, or sailing. He is an active member of the Alpine Club of Canada, and if he could he would spend every day teaching people how to enjoy the outdoors safely. My poor dad was blessed with two lovely daughters, neither of whom share his passion for outdoor adventure. However, our childhood is filled with memories of time spent with our

dad outside. I went skiing for the first time when I was two years old. I still remember my first red skis, which clipped on over my running shoes. I also learned how to scramble rocks at Lighthouse Park. One could hardly call it climbing, although I did get to wear a harness and a helmet. We often went bike riding around Stanley Park or swimming at New Brighton Pool. I remember sitting on the beach watching my dad windsurf with his hot pink helmet and being pretty impressed with him. I thought he was so cool. Every summer, my dad took me and my sister camping to remote B.C. locations. We would drive up logging roads, and we would swim in lakes and eat wild blueberries. To me it was normal to have a dad who went to all of your piano recitals, plays, and basketball games (even if you never scored a basket). He went not because he had to, but because he

It wasn’t until I was older that I began to notice that not all dads actually wanted to spend such intentional time with their kids. My dad has taught me so much over the years and has done so much for me and his family. He continues to amaze me every day. My dad is a man of few words and sometimes the wrong words. However, he is a man of many thoughtful actions. The sad part of being a person of many actions and few

words is that often things get left unsaid and often other people don’t know the person you really are. So, Dad, I’m writing this to make sure that others know you for the man you are, the one that you don’t talk up. Thank you for all the hours you have spent doing things for me over the years without much thanks or appreciation. I’ve been a bit preoccupied, but I noticed when you handmade all of the birch See Thanks page 29

Father’s Day

Thanks for support, encouragement and inspiration From page 28 bark candle holders for my wedding, and I noticed when you spent two weeks painting and fixing up my first real home. Thank you for taking care of me and Deanna, especially when mom was in the hospital when we were kids. Thank you for teaching me so much over the years. Thank you for showing me what a gem of a husband you are so that I knew husbands and dads like you existed, and so that I chose a man worthy of my love, time, and friendship. Thank you for loving and respecting mom all of these years. Thank you for showing diligence in your faith.You have shown me what life with Jesus looks like. Thank you for believing in me and telling me I should take physics because I would be good at it. Thank you for taking me outdoors and spending so much time with me. Even if I am not as adventurous or athletic as you are, you

taught me a love for the outdoors that I deeply appreciate. Thank you for crying during every amazing sports performance on TV (even in the movie Cool Runnings) because I have started to do the same. Thank you for choking up every time I tell you one of my teaching success stories. It means more to me than you will ever know. And thank you for making me a crier. Sometimes in class when a student does something sweet, I have to turn around and wipe a tear from my eye and it reminds me that I am your daughter. Most of all, thank you for accepting me for who I am: someone so very different from you and yet so similar to her daddy. Janine MacArthur is a North Shore resident who sent in this letter about her dad in response to a North Shore News tweet requesting submissions about great dads.

Stack Grill, the latest restaurant concept to fill the old Ricky’s/Fatburger space at Lonsdale Avenue and 20th Street, is like that quiet accountant at work. You know the guy. He sits in the office all day doing exactly what he is supposed to, dutifully and proficiently fulfilling his role as a by-the-book numbers guy. But then at night, when you head out for that impromptu drink with the team . . . watch out! He’s a madman, full of delightful surprises, hidden talents, playful humour and unbridled passion. You see, Stack Grill serves up a very good diner-style lunch, featuring fish and chips, wraps, wings, panini and such, all well prepared and right on the money in meeting the expectations the room sets with its casual, 1950sera burger and shake environment. However, the restaurant’s evening menu, which tends towards grilled meats and Italian fare, defies all expectations and allows the kitchen to flex its creative muscle. Stack Grill’s unique riff on the Jekyll and Hyde story invites patrons to appreciate both faces in equal measure with preference determined

solely by mood and appetite. It was a tip from a reader, paired with my own investigation of the restaurant’s evening menu on Facebook, that piqued my curiosity about the place and prompted me to pay it a visit one recent Saturday afternoon with The Boy, my gregarious six-year-old son who was keen on the idea of a burger and shake served in an old fashioned chrome and leather swivel chair and Formica wonderland. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by a very hospitable hostess who, it turned out, effectively runs the place, serving tables, manning the till, stocking condiments, consulting with the kitchen and blending up some mean milkshakes, including the rich and frothy chocolate number (“It has sprinkles on top, Dad!”) that The Boy so thoroughly enjoyed. Scanning the lunch menu I was initially mildly disappointed to learn how radically different the midday fare is from the dinner items described on Facebook. I mentioned the contrast casually to our server, who, without missing a beat, offered me the full dinner menu, explaining that the sunny afternoon traffic lull permitted the kitchen to prepare whatever I was looking for. Not being one to reject a magnanimous gesture, I ordered a sirloin steak with creamy Gorgonzola sauce, served with a side salad and seasonal vegetables. The Boy and I split an order of Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings to start, and then he had battered cod and chips as a main. Stack Grill’s open

scratch, which was a very promising sign of what was to come. The wings arrived plump, juicy, and covered in an outstandingly light batter not unlike tempura. The portion was substantial and turned out to be too much for The Boy and I to finish in one

sitting, particularly in light of the entrees that were still to come. The cod was crispy and golden brown, steaming and moist on the inside and served with a wedge of lemon, tartar sauce and simple coleslaw. The See Steak page 33

’Tis the season for B.C. strawberries 12 thin slices French baguette, cut on the diagonal 4 oz brie cheese, cut into 12 slices 6 large ripe strawberries, hulled and sliced 1-2Tbsp liquid honey 4 fresh basil leaves, cut into thin shreds

Angela Shellard

Romancing the Stove B.C. strawberries, how do I love thee? I offer herewith my annual tribute to these little red beauties. Prime strawberry season is now upon us, so pick up a supply at your local fruit stand or farmer’s market and have a strawberry-themed dinner party. Here are the recipes for your appetizer, salad and dessert.While pheasant with strawberry sauce sounds intriguing, you might want to forego the strawberries in the main course. Strawberry and Brie Crostini

Preheat oven to 350º F. Lay the baguette slices on a baking sheet and top each slice with a piece of brie. Bake until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted, about five or six minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle about half a teaspoon of honey over the melted cheese on each piece, then top with two slices of strawberry and a few shreds of basil. Makes 12 crostini. Strawberry Avocado Salad with PoppyseedVinaigrette 3 cups fresh baby spinach 3 cups fresh baby kale 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced 1 firm-ripe avocado, peeled and diced 4 oz crumbled gorgonzola cheese (you could

substitute feta or goat cheese) ¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted Half of a small red onion, thinly sliced Dressing: ½ cup olive oil 3Tbsp apple cider vinegar 2Tbsp liquid honey 1Tbsp poppy seeds 1 tsp Dijon mustard Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Place the first seven ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine.To make the dressing, place all dressing ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Screw lid on and shake jar vigorously to mix dressing. Taste dressing and adjust seasoning if necessary; pour desired amount over the salad and toss to coat evenly. Makes four servings. Fresh Strawberry Cake 6Tbsp butter, room temperature, plus extra for greasing pie plate (½ cup or ¼ lb of butter = 8 Tbsp; this might help you measure)

Extending a Hand Up, Not a Hand Out.

SINCE 1993

1½ cups all-purpose flour 1½ tsp baking powder ¼ tsp salt 1 cup plus 1½Tbsp granulated sugar, divided use 1 large egg ½ cup milk 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 lb strawberries, hulled and halved (if the berries are large cut them into three slices) Vanilla ice cream or lightly sweetened whipped cream

Preheat oven to 375º F. Grease a 10-inch pie plate generously with soft butter and set aside (if you use a nine-inch pie plate the batter may overflow, so fill it with only three quarters of the batter and bake the rest in a ramekin). In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter and one cup of sugar until mixture is pale and fluffy, about three minutes. Mix in the egg, milk and vanilla until just combined, then slowly add the dry ingredients, mixing just until batter is smooth. Turn batter into the greased pie plate and spread evenly. Arrange the strawberries cut side down in a single layer on top of the batter, as close together as possible (they can overlap them a bit as you want them really crowded together). Sprinkle the 1½

Bake at 375º for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 325º and continue baking for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out free of wet batter. Remove cake from oven and place on a wire rack; serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

Makes eight servings.The next time you make this, try substituting raspberries or sliced peaches for the strawberries. Angela Shellard is a selfdescribed foodie. She has done informal catering for various functions. Contact: ashellard@

fries, while adequate, were incongruously unremarkable. Had the rest of the of the meal not been so well prepared I might not have paid them any mind, but in light of the kitchen’s evident skill, the fries felt somehow beneath the chef. Now, for those who have not worked in a professional kitchen, I need to explain that a patron ordering from the dinner menu at lunchtime can be a right nuisance for a chef, as the mis-

en-place (the setup of menu ingredients that facilitates preparation) is often completely different between meal services and is most certainly different at Stack Grill, where the lunch and dinner menus bear little resemblance to each other. Let it be said, my steak did not betray any evidence of struggle in the kitchen. It was cooked to a perfect medium rare, boasted an outrageously rich and silky Gorgonzola sauce, and was accompanied by some absolutely delicious

vegetables, including thin ribbons of marinated, grilled zucchini finished with a light dusting of spices, and paper thin, crispy fried slices of lotus root. Other dinner menu items include beef tenderloin with marsala reduction and an ambitious roster of traditional Italian pastas. Surveying the nearly empty room at the end of our meal, I hoped that once patio season kicks into full swing, Stack Grill’s outdoor seating will entice passersby to explore the restaurant.

West Van schools still smashing away Sentinel and Collingwood continue to rule B.C. tennis


The word dynasty seems almost like an understatement these days for the Collingwood and Sentinel tennis teams. The Collingwood Cavaliers won their seventh straight provincial AA banner while the Sentinel Spartans claimed their sixth consecutive AAA B.C. title at this season’s championship tournaments played at the end of May. For the Cavaliers the dominance is even more impressive — they’ve made the final in each of the past nine years, winning eight of them. “It’s been a good run,” said Collingwood’s Al Rose, co-coach along with Andy Wong. The Cavs were led by Grade 9 star Isaac Davies — he went undefeated in the championship tournament to win the outstanding boys singles player award — and

the doubles team of Colton Kerfoot and Liam Huebner who also notched a perfect record while taking home the tournament’s top boys doubles team award. Davies is one of the top-ranked junior players in the province while Kerfoot is continuing a long tradition of elite hockey players moonlighting on the Collingwood tennis team. Other Cavalier tennis alumni include Sam Reinhart, a potential No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NHL draft, and Alexander Kerfoot, Colton’s older brother who was drafted by the New jersey Devils in 2012. “They like their tennis too,” said Rose with a laugh. “They’re both just great all-around athletes,” Rose said of the Kerfoot brothers. “They can do anything. You can see it on the court. . . . Because they played other sports they’re just used to those high-pressure situations.They can succeed in that and in fact I think

when to be there, and when he got there it didn’t matter what the situation was as far as pressure goes, he just came through in the clutch all the time. It was like he had ice in his veins.” This year’s Collingwood tennis team, as usual, featured a number of athletes who star in different sports but were ready to give their all on the hard courts as well. “Really good depth from top to bottom, great commitment from all the kids,” Rose said of the secret to his success. “I always

encourage them to play all the sports, but if you can we’d like you to make sure you’re here for our tennis matches.” Collingwood’s run, however, will be threatened in future years by the team they faced in this year’s final, said Rose. It’s a North Shore rival to boot. The Cavaliers topped Carson Graham 8-3 in the AA championship final but it was no blowout, said Rose, and the young Eagles are only getting better. “Carson Graham is an excellent young team and


they’re all going to be back next year,” he said. “They’re solid, top to bottom.They’ve got some good players and they’ve done an excellent job with their team.” Carson is coached by the husband and wife team of Fabio and Amy Walker, topnotch players themselves, and stars the duo’s daughters Angie and Alex, said Rose. Grade 10 Angie Walker won all of her matches at provincials to claim the outstanding girls singles player award. See Carson page 38

I am calm now in stressful situations! In the past 10 years I had a very short fuse, because my job is quite unpredictable. After I started Bell Calming Chronic Stress #66 the difference was amazing. My reactions to stressful situations are totally changed. I also have more energy, too. I don’t yell at others. I have more patience and I am much happier as well. Thank you. Mary Anne Thompson, 61, Lasalle, ON ! I suffered #66 NPN 80041855 greatly from anxiety. Standard treatments did not make me feel good. So my mother bought Bell Calming Chronic Stress #66 and it has been helping me a lot. I am on my 3rd bottle. Remington Fletcher, 19, Ponty Pool, ON ! I have a very high stress career in the film industry. There was no time for relaxation or meditation as you are on demand for 12 15 hours a day with no breaks. Since using Bell #66I am able to focus on the tasks at hand with more patience. Thank you for your help! Christina Ollson, 36, Burnaby, BC !It’s exactly one year since we began using Bell Calming Chronix Stress #66 for our two sons. Our local health food store recommended it. Both of our sons suffer from anxiety disorders. Our older son (14) was going through puberty and had become quite unmanageable, because he is much larger than I am. We are delighted with the immediate results. Our older son became his former sweet self and our younger son’s (12) anxiety is dramatically reduced. Thank you so much. Donna Van Veen, 48, Grand Prairie, AB
