Another successful gala for the YWCA

Ned Powers Saskatoon Express or the Saskatoon YWCA, its 32nd annual Women of Distinction Awards dinner on Thursday at TCU Place was another moment of triumph. Thanks to the major presenter, PotashCorp, a strong group of sponsors and a crowd estimated at 660, the YWCA’s major fundraising event of the year will produce close to $100,000 to serve the needs of the community. Barb Macpherson, executive director, told the story of attending a conference on


homelessness just recently where a woman at the back of the room “invited anyone to come and live with her at any time and no one took her up on the offer. “We don’t know how difficult it is, and what life is like for the people who come to our door,” says Macpherson. “We try to make life better for them. We try to help clients to develop their skills so they can get out and help their families and children. At the YWCA, we try and give these people hope.” The YWCA provides programs like crisis shelter and residence, employment

and learning facilities, a child development centre as well as maintaining the longstanding tradition of a fitness centre. The focus is placed on trying to eliminate poverty, homelessness and violence within families. “I feel privileged every day to watch the exhilarating group of people in action at the YWCA whose desire is to find hope for women and children,” said Macpherson. Vlatka Tustonic accepted the challenge of being the dinner chair for the fifth straight year, sharing the celebratory mood that the 33 award nominees in 10

categories might inspire everyone at the dinner. And, as enthusiastic as Tustonic was at the beginning, she was even more upbeat at the end. “How inspiring was the message and the spoken word poetry of Zondra Roy (the youth award winner) and how uplifting was the storytelling of Margaret Tosh (the lifetime achievement winner)?” said Tustonic. “I was blown away by what they said and the way people got to their feet and gave standing ovations to both of them.”

this for a long time. And as you can see by recent news reports, some of their rules aren’t tight enough. I’ve been on this page all along. We have to have really tight guidelines and we have to know exactly what it means so there isn’t that much room for interpretation of the law. So for me, when you talk about guidelines, I’m there 100 per cent. This should not only be for mayoralty candidates, it should be for councillors too. I think everyone, regardless of the cost, needs to have audited election expense statements. This is a city that’s going to have a budget of $1 billion. This is big business. People need to know when they are going to the polls; this is not a popularity contest, this is about elected officials running a community. And if you think of a city that is going from 250,000 to a population base of 1.2-million people, you better have rules in place in advance, not after something occurs.

SASKATOONEXPRESS - May 27-June 2, 2013 - Page 3


he PotashCorp Children’s Festival of Saskatchewan started as a simple conversation in 1988 between neighbours over a cup of coffee. That was 25 years ago. Cass Cozens and Joan Flood knew they were on to something special. Today their idea still thrives as one of Saskatchewan’s largest festivals. “The timing was really perfect,” said Cozens of the first festival, called the Northern Saskatchewan International Children’s Festival. “Saskatoon is very much a family-oriented city and it was a time when festivals were just getting going. The jazz festival had just started and the fringe festival followed us the year after. It was the year of the Jeux Canada Games. The climate was just right.” Flood remembers sitting down with Cozens and discussing the need for a children-focused festival in the city. “I remember saying: ‘So what are you going to do next, Cass?’ We were both casting around for the next thing to do.

Bringing the world to

Festival founders reflect on its evolution We found that we had a coincidence here, a mutual interest in this wonderful idea,” said Flood. “We’re both educators in our background, and so somehow it just came together that this would be a fantastic thing to do. We got very involved with the education side of it. The children’s festival is largely about entertainment, but entertainment is a very complex thing, and you can either do the funny stuff, the easy access stuff, or you can go with the stuff with some thought to it and some life lessons and values.” Neither Cozens nor Flood had taken on anything of this magnitude before. Cozens credited their ability to push forward to pure “naivety.” “Joan used to say it’s like being seven months pregnant,” said Cozens. “You certainly wonder when you are that far along if it’s such a good idea anymore! You can’t change your mind; it’s a little too late. Once the ball starts rolling, you can’t stop it. We definitely had moments of trepidation and worry, but, oh, it was fun.” “Our only capital expenditure our first year of the festival was to buy a telephone recorder — an answering machine — for just barely under $90. We ran our office out of the second floor of Joan’s house; she

was gracious enough to open up her house and let us do that. It was very much on a shoestring budget in that first year.” In its first year, the Festival sold more than 13,000 tickets. Cozens and Flood both say they were overwhelmed with this feat. Cozens, whose youngest son was seven years old at the time, was able to see the vision of the festival through his eyes. Flood’s second grandchild was born that year. Both women are passionate about the education and empowerment of children through entertainment, and believe that is why the festival was, and is, so successful. “People like Fred Penner and Sharon, Louis and Bram are good for children; they bring with them a set of solid values. They respect children, they honour them. There’s no condescension or patronizing,” said Flood. “A lot of festivals that we knew in the early days have folded. It’s partly money in tight times; it’s partly that they haven’t stuck to a strong artistic vision. This is a strong performing-arts festival. If it becomes a jolly-laugh festival, then there are missed opportunities and it doesn’t

have the same durability. “We’ve taken some real risks with issues. We’ve had the odd complaint and we welcome it because it means we were walking that edge.” This year’s PotashCorp Children’s Festival of Saskatchewan will run from June 2-5 in Kiwanis Park. More than 20,000 people visit the festival annually to watch international arts performances and participate in creative activities with little to no cost. The focus — both in 1988 and now — is on high-quality performance, according to Cozens. “Insuring that a solid variety of art forms are presented is so important,” said Cozens. “There is a very strong cultural focus so that you create a larger world view, especially for those children that aren’t able to leave Saskatoon. “You bring the world to them,” added Flood. Though Cozens and Flood are not part of the organizing committee this year, they are guests of the festival. Flood did 11 festivals in 12 years; Cozens retired from


organizing the festival six years ago. They have passed the torch on to executive director Shauna Bradford-Wilson, who Cozens originally hired as a publicist. “Shauna has got a solid artistic vision,” said Cozens. “That is important to me and Joan, that that the vision of the festival doesn’t radically change.” The PotashCorp Children’s Festival of Saskatchewan kicks off with an opening night celebration and cupcake reception on June 1, with a concert and performance in the StarPhoenix show tent for ticket holders. For more information on the festival, go to www. Tickets are available online, by phone at 306-6524700 or in person at the box office, located in the lobby of the Delta Bessborough Hotel. You can expect to see both Cozens and Flood there, perhaps enjoying a coffee. “We had such fun,” said Flood with a laugh. “There was no question it was hard work, and at the end of every festival I would think ‘Oh gosh, I can’t do this again. I’m getting too old.’ And in two weeks, I’d be talking to Cass about ideas for the next year. It’s just fantastic to see the festival go on and enrich children’s lives, even for a few days.”

Caswell Boys F

Seven reunite to celebrate 80th birthdays

or one group of 12 boys growing up in Saskatoon’s Caswell district, there was a special significance to the week they first attended school. While they were settling in Grade 1 at Caswell School, most of Saskatoon was talking and worrying about the start of the Second World War, which began in Europe on Sept. 1, 1939 and lasted until May 7, 1945. Seven of the boys will be holding a reunion this week, all in celebration of 80th birthdays. Their friendships have been lasting. Most went to Bedford Road Collegiate as well. Bill Neill, Larry Langley, Roy Hufsmith, Jack Smith and Ken Summers have reached No. 80. Greg Barnsley and Stan Thomas are soon to join the club. Two others, Gerry Moir and Daryl Olstad, are unable to attend the reunion. Three — Tom Cole, Murray Pyke and Bill Sharpley — are deceased. Most have been raking up old memories, turning them over to Thomas, who has compiled their thoughts in written form. The Second World War affected them in many ways, but partly because there was suddenly a population crisis at Caswell School. A decision to establish two flying training schools led to the new air force recruits occupying Bedford Road Collegiate. Bedford students moved to Westmount and Westmount students swelled Caswell’s population. “Most of the displaced Westmount kids were sent to Caswell,’’ Thomas recalls. “The remainder attended Princess Alex. The result — Caswell’s enrolment exploded. We believe we had around 800 kids at the time. Four classrooms were set up in the basement. The Westmounters were at Caswell for three years — from September 1942 to June 1945, the year the war ended. Kids being kids meant we blended well. We recall no friction. We do remember a positive benefit. More athletes to draw from resulted in top sports teams which gave Caswell several city championships those years.” Outdoor Hockey: “Our rink had no boards around it and required constant scraping, shovelling and sweeping. The goal area was served, at each end, by two four-by-four posts frozen into ice. There were no nets.” Thomas recalls a time “when I was thrust in between two wooden posts, wearing my aviator helmet with flaps over the ears, holding a sliver of a stick with shins protected by felt pads. Playing on the other team was Walt Kuzma, one of the Westmount boys. Walt wound up at the far end and started up the ice. My team parted like the Red Sea in front of me. I’m screaming, ‘Don’t’ raise, don’t raise!’ The next thing I heard was boing, the sound of the frozen puck hitting the post right beside my ear. As a goalie, I took early retirement that day. “School hockey culminated in the big event — the annual East Side versus ML70537.E27 West Side school all-star game. Around

Patients benefit from local doctor’s personal research

Physician-only skin care available to public Complimentary Consultations with Dr. Demkiw-Bartel Dr. Coby Demkiw-Bartel has been practicing family medicine for ten years. The Saskatoon physician has a special interest in dermatology and has spent extra time training and doing research in skin-related issues. Her background in associated medical fields as a lab tech and pharmacist have allowed her to further investigate skin-related issues, including skin care products and services that actually work.

Four years ago, a Canadian company approached her to try their line of products by the name ALYRIA. They are concentrated and potent products that as a result only physicians can sell. The product line is appropriate for people of all ages and both genders. The best part is that these products actually do what they claim, last a significant amount of time and are affordable. “Quite often patients come back after trying the line and together we marvel in what has been the result,” she says. ALYRIA is a safe effective way to improve your skin’s appearance including the treatment of dull skin, fine lines/wrinkles, acne/acne scarring, brown spots/melasma/ hyperpigmentation, and photodamage. Also offered are chemical peels and microdermabrasion. These services are safe, effective, non-invasive ways to improve your skin’s appearance and complement the ALYRIA line extremely well. “We also treat warts, skin tags, molluscum and seborrheic/actinic keratosis,” Dr. Demkiw-Bartel adds. Uniquely all treatments performed by physician.

Rick Mercer

Comedian coming to fundraiser


Joelle Tomlinson Saskatoon Express

ou’re coming to Saskatoon to do a night of comedy at the Wiegers Care for Kids cabaret event in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. How do you feel about our province and the event? I’m always thrilled to travel and provide entertainment for events like these across the country. I’ve been to Saskatchewan a bunch of times with the show. The University of Saskatchewan pops into my mind, and the potash mine. It was pretty phenomenal and everyone I met down there was so nice to me. The shoot I did with the Saskatchewan Roughriders is probably one of my favourite pieces we’ve ever done. And of course, just recently, Estevan in Saskatchewan won the Spread the Net Challenge. What does this say about Saskatchewan’s fundraising efforts? I would say I’m no longer surprised by these things, because the dark horse often takes the race. What’s been phenomenal to me about the entire Spread the Net experience is that schools have done such a phenomenal job of raising money — it’s $1.5 million now around the country. Yet every school knows that the contest is inherently unfair, because no matter what school you go to in the country, there will always be a bigger school somewhere else. And that’s just the way it is. That’s the way life is as well, and yet the students do it anyway. They do such a tremendous job and the spirit at Estevan school was tremendous. I met them and I totally understood why they did so well. Can you tell me about the inspiration behind Spread the Net before we work our way to the Wiegers Care for Kids comedy and cabaret event? Belinda Stronach and I went to Africa; we were following Dr. Jeffrey Sachs around. He’s a rock-star economist who was trying to figure out many problems LS90093.L17 that were on that continent. In one community, there would be corn growing Liza

in the field, children running around and a school and a small economy. What you needed to survive was there. Then, we would literally go 200-300 miles down the road and there would be another village; no children, no food growing, people were not well and there was zero economy. There was poverty in the sense that you can’t even begin to imagine. Dr. Sachs explained the difference was the first community had access to these anti-malaria bed nets, so the children weren’t getting sick and dying. If all the children in a community die, they are the soul of a community; the adults are sick so they can’t grow food and it just all immediately begins to collapse. And so then, we were no longer looking at a huge, insurmountable problem, we were looking at one problem, and the solution was a $10 bed net. You are known for rants, but also for being a comedian. Is it tough as a writer to combine the two, in a sense? Well, I generally don’t combine those kinds of issues. Even though issues like bullying have come up on the show, by and large, that’s not my job. I’m not a social scientist that’s out there exploring the ills and the problems of the world every single week. Like I said, I’m celebrating. If I’m going somewhere it’s to celebrate it. Let’s focus on Saskatoon and the Wiegers Care for Kids Rant ‘n’ Raise cabaret. What about this cause speaks to you? Do you pick and choose which events you can attend? You spend the first part of your career desperate to get anyone to come see you do anything. I’m very fortunate now that I have this show and lots of people want to see it or want me to come out. Saskatchewan has always been a great place for me to perform. I did the Silver Spoon dinner three or four years ago, and that was one of the most fun nights I’ve ever had. The show that I’m doing now is very similar to that show; the content is different but the format is the same. I really enjoy doing it, and I’m fortunate I get to choose places like Saskatchewan and causes like the Children’s Hospital in

Saskatchewan to support. The cabaret is Canadianthemed. What kind of material will you bring to the event? The show is called A Nation Worth Ranting About. I’ve been doing the RMR show for 10 years and as a result I haven’t unpacked in 10 years. I’ve got to travel the country non-stop and I think it gives me a unique perspective. When I go to a place, I create a piece and we put it on television, but quite often the story of meeting the people involved is the overwhelming thing that I take away from that. That experience is often not the one you see on television. I will talk about some of those stories. I will talk about the country and some of the conclusions I’ve come to and some of the questions I’ve asked myself that I know I’m further away from answering now then I was 10 years ago. You just wrapped up the 10th season of the Rick Mercer Report. Taking a look at your career so far, is this somewhere you predicted you would be? If you’re in show business, especially somewhere in Canada, you’re happy if you’re just working. So for the vast majority of my career, I was just thrilled that I was working. Before I went

to work at 22 Minutes, the longest I’d had a job was six weeks in terms of show business. That was fantastic. I’ve had a career that I’m very proud of, and I can’t believe I’ve managed to stay working this long. What are your thoughts on the Wiegers Care for Kids campaign and the hospital being built here in Saskatoon? I just hope people come out. It’s obviously a great cause. I hope they realize that it’s a fun night and it’s a comedy night. While it’s very important to talk about things like the Spread the Net issues and all the other issues, I hope people realize that it’s a night of pure comedy. And it will be very Canadian. Rick Mercer will be in Saskatoon on June 8 in support of Wiegers Care for Kids Inc.’s major fundraiser. The proceeds go to support the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan.

Woods of art on display at exhibition


Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express

alking into Art Delahey’s Saskatoon home, the first thing you notice is the aroma of fresh-cut wood. Then you begin to absorb the beauty that is everywhere, in the form of stunning, hand-crafted tables, cabinets and even a rocking chair. And they were all designed and manufactured by Delahey’s own hands. Not looking a day over 60, the 82year-old speaks humbly and eloquently of his craft. “I really became intrigued with woodworking when I was a kid,” he said. “I didn’t do much about it though, other than take a couple of night classes. Then, I retired and joined the Saskatchewan Woodworkers’ Guild (SWG), which is where I became seriously interested in fine furniture.” The guild was launched in 1978, when a group of individuals began getting together casually to share ideas, tips and their passion with others who were also interested in working with wood. During the past 35 years, the SWG has grown exponentially.Today it includes both professional woodworkers and hobbyists ranging in age from 10 to over 90 years old. The group meets once a month in Walter Murray Collegiate’s industrial arts lab. Delahey credits the guild with helping him achieve the phenomenal level of skill he’s reached today. “At the meetings, we have ‘show and tell’, a questionand-answer period for folks who are having problems with some task or another, and live demonstrations,” said Delahey, whose trademark pieces are his custom-designed jewelry boxes. “Guests and members alike demonstrate their expertise — we mentor each other.” Delahey described a massive library for SWG member use, located over Saskatoon’s Great Western Saw. “There’s

Art Delahey’s work will be on display at the woodworkers’ exhibition (Photo by Joelle Tomlinson) a wealth of woodworking knowledge in that library,” he said. “You get all this mentoring, education and networking for a membership cost of $45 a year.” Every year, the SWG sponsors a show to display the works of its members. This year’s show, the SWG’s 35th Annual Exhibition of Fine Works — or Wood 13 for short — runs from May 25 to June 2 at the Galleria Building at Innovation Place. The show is open to the public for viewing or to purchase items from the artisans. However, its primary purpose, as stated on the SWG’s website, is to “educate the public and raise awareness of the beauty and diversity of works that can be created from wood.” The beautiful woodworking pieces at the show have been crafted by both

inners Margaret Tosh Lifetime Achievement

The Saskatoon Express was proud to be the Champagne sponsor at this year’s Awards Gala. Stories by Ned Powers, Joelle Tomlinson and Tammy Robert


Ned Powers Saskatoon Express

argaret Tosh has always subscribed to the theory that “this is the only body I’ll ever have, so take care of it.” Her strong beliefs in fitness and health really made the perfect fit when the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards selection committee recognized the former Olympian and present-day Masters athlete with its lifetime achievement award. As Margaret George, she represented Canada in the javelin event at the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia. Then she married George Tosh and settled back into a Saskatchewan farming lifestyle, as well as embracing teaching as a career and coaching and inspiring young athletes to follow in her footsteps. At the age of 68, she competed in the 2005 World Masters Games and last summer, at age 74, she won one silver medal, three bronze medals, as well as gaining a fourth-place and fifth-place finish in her throwing events at the World Masters Athletic championships in California. Margaret captivated her audience at TCU Place at last week’s dinner with stories filled with true Saskatchewan spirit. She was born in a log cabin, delivered by a grandmother mid-wife. She grew up on a farm near Mervin, overcoming her shyness and working diligently on the farm. She paid tribute to her mother “who was dedicated to canning and preserving, and living off the land, and instilling in me the values of nutrition.” She hailed her father as “an expert in weight training. It started at the woodpile, went into the fields where we picked rocks every spring, pitched hay onto the rack, and swung a nine-pound hammer to drive posts into the ground.” She was the catcher on the softball team, “only getting a mask after I had endured three black eyes.” Her three sisters – Edith from Loon Lake, Marion from North Battleford and Shirley from Assiniboia JW10876.E27 – were in attendance at the dinner and heard their


sister praise them for gifts of selfdiscipline and support. “When I’d go away to the Canadian Olympic training program, 10 days at a time for five years, my sisters covered my chores and there was no animosity and no sibling rivalry.” Margaret also touched on other influences. Her first coach was the

legendary Joe Griffiths “who waved the magic wand over me.” When she embarked on a competitive comeback at the age of 68, Tolga Yanik at the YWCA pointed her in the direction where “I could do six reps of a 220pound leg press.” When she went to her first indoor meet “and I’d been away from the sport 13 years, there was Dean Bertoia as a coach.”

She also shared the evening with husband, George, their children, Theresa, Adele and Jim, who all grew up in Harris, noting that “an award of this magnitude is humbling and my journey through life sometimes feels like a fairytale.” There is more to come. She will be inducted into the Canadian Masters Sports Hall of Fame in July in Regina.

Fran Forsberg

Karin Melberg Schwier

Tammy Fleming

As a foster parent for 31 years, Fran Forsberg brought more than 125 children home to live with her — some short-term, some long-term. She and her husband, Lee, have two children of their own, Adam and Shae, and adopted nine more, Sheena, Destiny, Krista, Tana, Nate, Gracie, Sienna, Renn and Jacob. She never gets tired of what she lovingly called “a family living like a circus without a tent.” As the award winner in the Community Building category, Fran said her children “teach me so much about courage and unconditional love. I really feel blessed that they chose me to be their mom.” All the adopted children are from First Nations backgrounds and she encourages them to stay in touch with their culture. She said each has special qualities and eight have attended the Georges Vanier School of Fine Arts, where they can study arts, music and drama. Fran was nominated by Shatilla, “who came into my life at 18 months, went back to her family and has never been far away.” She educates foster parents, gives PRIDE training, lectures on gender creativity in schools and promotes understanding and respect for children who could otherwise be neglected. She supports organizations like the Lighthouse, the Breaking the Silence movement, the diversity branch of Saskatoon Police Services, the Adoption Support Network, Saskatoon Foster Families and the CNIB. She drew the crowd’s attention to a Tibetan saying that “when a sleeping woman wakes, mountains move. Now let’s get out and kick aside some mountains.”

Through her achievements in listening, writing and storytelling, award-winning author and editor, Karin Melberg Schwier has had a profound effect on the lives of people living with intellectual disabilities. She credits her 39-year-old son James, who lives with Down Syndrome and has been volunteering at the YMCA for 18 years, with inspiring her to always ensure her work is always authentic and honest. “Because I work freelance, I’m able to spend a lot of time creating an interesting and purposeful life for James and our family. Anytime I’m writing, he’s always in the back of my mind,” Karin said. “I’m always working towards promoting a better life for people with disabilities, because that’s what we want for James.” Karin has written eight books focusing on the lives of people with intellectual disabilities, and edited numerous publications for organizations such as the Fetal Alcohol Support Network, the Saskatoon YMCA and the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living. In 2013, she launched her latest book project, Flourish: People with Disabilities Living Life with Passion, which reached No. 4 on McNally Robinson’s best-seller list. “I strive to preserve the exact words of the people I’m interviewing, even if they’re a bit awkward,” Karin said. “It’s about telling their unique stories, especially the people who haven’t always had an opportunity to be heard or understood, even though the stories might be uncomfortable for people to hear. We have a responsibility to listen.” On winning the Women of Distinction Award, Karin was clearly overwhelmed. “It’s unbelievable, especially when hearing the accomplishments of the other nominees. I’m still in disbelief, but it’s really cool.”

Congratulations to women of distinction. We salute you.

Tammy Fleming is at the forefront of fitness in Saskatoon. She is passionate about the lifestyle changes women experience through fitness, and was involved for 10 years as swim coach, race director and volunteer with Just Tri It in the city. At times, her mother helped out as a volunteer, which inspired Tammy to create the Makin’ it Happen Triathlon in memory of her mom, who died of cancer in 2010. “Simply being nominated is a gift that continues to give,” Tammy said at the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards night. Tammy said she was “truly honoured to be recognized among the incredible women who were nominated in her category.’’ Tammy thanked her family, without whom the Makin’ it Happen Triathlon couldn’t have been such a success. “This year, we had 119 women complete their very first triathlon at the Shaw Centre. I get to support women in the community while they work so hard to do something they thought was not even possible. They give 100 per cent of their hard work.” Proceeds from this year’s Makin’ it Happen Triathlon will go toward giving patients’ families a place to stay in partnership with the Park Town Hotel. In addition to overseeing triathlons, Tammy also advises the Saskatoon Health Region on patient and family care, is co-chair of the Client and Family Centred Care steering committee and has presented to the quality summit and Saskatchewan Union of Nurses.

Arlene Shiplett

Christin Butcher

Johanna Bergerman

Any students of horn in Saskatoon and area are likely familiar with Arlene Shiplett. Arlene has been instructing horn in schools – with the Saskatoon Youth Orchestra, at the university and at the International Music Camp — all for the past 20 years in different capacities. “What’s really interesting to me is all the wonderful students I have learned from,” she said. “When I think back to everything I have done, the hardest student to teach is the one I learned the most from. It’s been just fabulous working with the children of Saskatchewan and watching their lives be enriched by music.” Arlene is both a teacher and a performer, and plays with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra, the International Brass Quintet, the Prairie Virtuosi, the Gala Trio, and in the Elim Tabernacle Christmas musical. Somewhere in this mix, she manages to find time to conduct for the Saskatoon Horn Choir and present across Saskatchewan for the National Arts Centre Music Alive Program.  Arlene fondly remembers moments in her career, such as handing out 150 kazoos to children, and “watching 150 children play kazoo at the same time — can you imagine?”  Arlene’s recent accomplishments include winning the Dwaine Nelson Teaching award, conducting the mass horn choir at the Call of Wild horn conference and performing with the International Brass Quintet at the International Peace Gardens. Every summer Arlene performs on the Saskatchewan Western Development Museum’s steam calliope, which is one of the few in playing condition in North America. She is married to Lee Springett. Together, they have seven horns.

Christin Butcher knows a good cupcake when she sees one. In fact, she probably made it. Butcher is a Saskatoon entrepreneur who enriches Saskatoon’s community through leadership and volunteerism — and with the delicious creations she bakes at The Cupcake Conspiracy. Christin credits her passion for entrepreneurship and creativity to her family, and says she is following in the footsteps of her “great grandmother, grandmother and mother, who were all so incredible and inspiring. “In the room earlier when I looked around and I thought, ‘What am I doing here?’ All of the women who are nominated are so incredibly inspiring and have done such wonderful things for the community,” said Christin at the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards night. “I guess I just come by it naturally in a sense, and I am so honoured to follow in their footsteps. We are a community and I believe in making it a better place.” Not only is she an active volunteer, busy baker and successful entrepreneur, she also gives to causes for people in need. Through The Cupcake Conspiracy, she donates to The Lighthouse, Friendship Inn, YWCA, Ronald McDonald House, Crisis Nursery and The Princess Shop and she provides placements every year for work-education students. “My staff inspires me every day,” Christin said. “I get a chance to work with young people who all have these fantastic ideas and creations, then we get to show these to customers on a daily basis.”

Internationally recognized breastfeeding expert Johanna Bergerman has had a long career as a public health nutritionist and lactation consultant. She believes that breastfeeding is a social determinant of health and a factor in women’s gender equality. “As a public health nutritionist, most of the world I’m involved in is focused on maternal and child health,” Johanna said. “I want to thank the women in this community who have entrusted me with their birthing and breastfeeding stories.” Johanna is a strong advocate for maternity protection policies, breastfeeding-friendly public spaces, and workplace changes for flexible work and better maternity and parental leave. She played a critical role in the Saskatchewan Human Rights publication Pregnancy, Parenting and the Workplace. Recently, Johanna worked with the Saskatoon Health Region to establish the Saskatoon Mothers’ Centre in Station 20 West, helping mothers in the city’s core neighbourhoods develop leadership skills. “The work I do would not be possible without the synergy of local, provincial, national and international networks. It’s through these networks that we here in Saskatoon are able to initiate and sustain change.”  Through these networks, it is her dream to bring a donor milk bank to Saskatchewan. Johanna is thankful to the Saskatoon Mothers Centre Coalition for their support in starting a “dragon boat team, which was the initial starting point for the mothers centre in terms of team building. “That metaphor of working together (in the boat) made me realize the truth behind the words: Together we are stronger.” 

Out of the Mouth’s of Babes

This is what I thought when my 4 year old son says to me one afternoon, “Look, mom that lady is almost as fat as you are!” My 17 year old son was just mortified that his younger brother could be so callus and reprimanded him for his comment but I quickly reminded my son that he was just little and he didn’t realize nor did he understand just how hurtful his words had been. I explained that he was being truthful and that it was ok but deep down I realized it was not ok. I was not always large but the years working in an office environment, stomach issues, depression and life’s hurdles in general had caught up with me. I knew I was gaining weight 5 pounds here, 10 pounds there but I did not realize how much I had gained until I had to buy an outfit for my son’s graduation and the pictures….oh the pictures!!! I had spent years of dodging camera’s, scales and mirrors. I had been on every diet known to man and the money I spent on each and every one of them I am sure I could have bought a new car. Not to mention the exercise equipment and tapes I bought could equip a small gym. Sure I would lose the weight but once I started eating regularly the pounds would come right back on and then some. Once my 4 year old had brought me back to reality I realized that my family was the most important thing in my life and we could not be happy unless I was happy. In order for me to be happy I had to get healthy. Years of research and numerous numbers of referrals to Canadian Bariatric Surgeons I had come up empty handed. Then through my sister I had met Debra from Weight No More Consulting. One phone call was all it took and days later I was on the road to a new & healthier Life!!! Debra was so kind, understanding and considerate. She answered all of my questions as if I was the most important person in the world to her and not just a number or a dollar value. Debra and her fantastic surgical team saved my life. The care and attention I got at the INT Hospital in Mexico by the doctors and nursing staff was absolutely wonderful. I weighed in at 255 pounds with a height of 5 feet; my BMI was well over 40 when I started my weight loss journey. The pre op diet was not such an easy task; straight liquids for 2 weeks with no solids but I did it!!! On November 15, 2011 I had my sleeve surgery and weighed in at 239

Weight No More Consulting

pounds. For the up and coming months afterwards were struggles of what to eat and what my body would allow me to eat but as the days went by I went from clear liquids to blended liquids, to soft foods and then solids. Christmas dinner was a real treat because it was the first real meal I had had since the beginning of November. My goal initially was to get down to a weight of 140 lbs. Mission accomplished!!! January 2012 was the month I started at the gym twice a week. With the combination of a healthy diet, a great trainer and lots of support from Debra at Weight No More Consulting, friends and family I had hit my goal in no time!!! Today I am just 18 months post op, weighing in at 132 lbs, my BMI is 25.8 and my Waist to Height ratio is .45 for a total loss of 123 lbs since I had started my journey. I have no more stomach issues, my GERD/IBS is now manageable with medications, my muscles/joints do not ache and I can finally sleep through the night!!! I thought that hitting my goal weight would be my reward but the real reward is the look on my friends and family’s faces at what I have accomplished and the words out of my now 8 year old son were “Look mom, when I hug you I can get my arms all the way around you and then some!” That was the most wonderful statement I had ever heard come out of his little mouth, it brought tears to my eyes. If I had just one message for anyone who was considering WLS it would be this…..Weight Loss Surgery is a tool and not “the easy way out”, for some it is a “Last Resort” but for most it is a life altering decision. I would be lying if I said there are no struggles…there are struggles after surgery just like the struggles you had before surgery but the struggles are different and the way you handle each struggle will be different but if you take each day and each hurdle one step at a time you can be as successful as I am!!!! Debra at Weight No More Consulting will be there for you every step of the way and through every struggle…she lends a listening ear, is very confidential and treats each client as they are the only person in her life. She truly cares and nothing makes her happier than seeing our smiling faces.

Watch for the announcement from Weight No More Consulting of their doctors coming to Saskatoon for a presentation.

Patricia Prowse

Lesley Anne McGilp

Zondra Roy

As superintendent of education for Saskatoon’s Board of Education, Patricia Prowse is considered a courageous and values-driven leader by her colleagues and peers. Her vision is to create safe, caring and culturally responsive schools in our city by advocating for improved educational achievements for First Nations, Inuit and Metis students. Patricia has worked tirelessly for the past nine years to close achievement gaps and nurture effective partnerships, including the implementation of a violence threat risk-assessment model in Saskatoon public schools in tandem with organizations such as the Saskatoon Police Service, Ministry of Social Services, MD Ambulance and the Saskatoon Health Region. This violence threat risk-assessment model has been recognized by educational institutions nationally and internationally as an example to follow. “I have learned so much, and continue to do so,’’ Patricia said. “I have learned to be culturally responsive. I want to bring back culture to our schools, and celebrate it.’’ Patricia considers the fact that she was mentored by “extraordinary leaders’’ an invaluable part of her journey. “From these leaders I have learned the power of hope. My hope as a leader includes having all students succeed,’’ she said. “To do that we must eliminate learning disparities for First Nations, Inuit and Metis students. I also hope for safe and caring schools and communities that inspire learning. It is this hope that fuelled my passion and commitment for the last 33 years, and that will continue well into the future.’’

Petroleum engineer Lesley Anne McGilp is a busy woman, a mother to two young children, fundraiser and has a full-time, demanding role managing the Saskatchewan Research Council’s Pipe Flow Technology Centre. With a Bachelor in Education in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan and an MBA from the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary, Lesley Anne is a fabulous role model for young women considering a future in the sciences, and she wants to encourage more women to pursue the field. “I have almost always been the only woman in the boardroom,’’ she said. “Having more women in the business would bring a new, more varied perspective to the field. That’s so important.” Lesley Anne describes the challenges of being one of the only women, and typically the first, to have to forage family-friendly policies in a typically male-dominated environment. “In other fields, such as nursing and education, there tend to be more flexible policies for women who need to make the time to have and raise their children. It was challenging at times, but it’s getting better.” She credits technology and more educated, inclusive corporate culture with the development of policies which allow for flexibility for women striving to balance motherhood and their jobs. Lesley Anne is an international leader in research on pipeline transport and practical applications for industry. Prior to her role with the research council, she worked for 11 years in the oil and gas industry focusing on acquisitions and divestitures, reservoir development and production engineering. She co-chaired the first Saskatoon Innovation Week in 2012 and is chairing Saskatchewan’s Innovation Week in 2013.

Zondra Roy, who also goes by Zoey, recently returned from New York where she was at the United Nations on her own accord, advocating for Metis youth, who she feels are politically marginalized by the current system. Despite this weighty and significant project immediately behind her, she moved seamlessly onto the stage to receive her YWCA Women of Distinction Award for Youth, wowing the audience with a spoken-word poetry presentation that brought the audience to its feet. Zondra is an activist, spoken word poet, hip-hop artist and social entrepreneur hailing from the Black Lake Denesuline First Nation and Cormorant Lake in Manitoba. Today, she attends the University of Saskatchewan where she is pursuing her bachelor’s degree in education, while working tirelessly to improve the lives of marginalized and disenfranchised youth. “I have struggled,” Zondra said. “My goal is to inspire youth to become leaders, to have a better life. I am living proof that social programming works.’’ Zondra has been locally and nationally recognized for founding Rock the Vote in Saskatchewan, which grew into a Canada-wide movement during the 2011 federal election. Zondra has committed numerous hours to volunteering with the Restorative Action Program and the David Suzuki Foundation. She taught a medicine wheel life-skills course and was recently a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

Doors Open

Get a glimpse at buildings past and present


Jeff O’Brien for the Saskatoon Express

omething old, something new, and lots in between — Doors Open is coming back to town on June 2, as some of the most interesting buildings in the city open their doors to welcome everyone in for a look around. Doors Open is an international celebration of built heritage — those all-important bits of bricks and mortar (and concrete, glass and steel) that give structure to the urban landscape and help us anchor ourselves in space and time. First started in France in 1984, and then quickly spreading through much of Europe, Doors Open jumped the Atlantic to Toronto in 2000. In 2005, a local alliance of heritage-minded individuals and organizations brought it to Saskatoon. Since 2007, Doors Open Saskatoon has been held every second year, alternating with the city’s Municipal Heritage Awards. Although people tend to think of Doors Open — and built heritage generally — as being about old, historic buildings, this isn’t always the case. This year’s lineup will include some grand old standbys, but also some radical new departures. Civic buildings include Fire Hall Number One on Idylwyld Drive and the Bus Barns at Avenue C and 24th Street. Saskatoon Transit is 100 years old this year. In celebration they are offering free bus service during the event to anyone wearing a Doors Open button pass. Passes are available at Tourism Saskatoon, the 23rd Street Bus Mall transit office and at the Diefenbaker Canada Centre. The Riverhouse Gallery, an art gallery and coffee house in a beautiful old 1908 home on Spadina Crescent West, will be opening its doors this year, as will the AODBT Building at 235 Avenue D North, a ’70’s-era wholesale food warehouse converted into a stunning, state-of-theart, LEED (Lead in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Standard office building.

New theatre group presents ground-breaking classic


Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express

n 1956, British playwright John Osborne first produced his controversial, ground-breaking classic, Look Back in Anger, for audiences in England. The show was hailed as a new era for the stage at a time when theatre-goers were primarily tittering at the upper-class, parlour-room romps they were used to. Osborne has been credited with launching the genre of “angry young men” and “kitchen-sink dramas” that eventually became staples of both stage and screen. Brick and Mortar Theatre, a new local, professional theatre collective, is bringing Look Back in Anger to Saskatoon audiences this Friday at Riversdale’s Studio 914. This show is directed by Pamela Haig Bartley with stage management by Grahame Kent. Rob van Meenen is a familiar face on Saskatoon performing arts’ scene, Rob van Meenan plays Jimmy appearing in productions such as PersePorter in Look Back in Anger phone Theatre’s The Mighty Carlins and (Photo Submitted) Three Days of Rain, as well as Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan’s King Lear. He can also be found on stage with the Porter, a smart but disillusioned young troupe at the Saskatoon Soaps. In Look man who runs a candy-stall by day, while Back in Anger, van Meenan plays Jimmy subjecting his wife and friend to angry

Helena arrives unexpectedly. This triggers a series of events that will change the trio’s lives forever, launching entirely new battles. In addition to van Meenan, the cast includes Angela Kemp, Jules Mercier, Jenna-Lee Hyde and Blaine Hart. “Look Back in Anger’s reappearance on a Saskatchewan stage is long overdue,” said van Meenan. “The play still sizzles, and its themes still resonate.” Look Back in Anger runs at Studio 914 at 914 20th Street West from May 31 to June 9 (preview May 30, no show June 3). Shows are nightly at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Ticket prices are $22 for adults and $20 for students, seniors and artists.

rants and violent outbursts by night. “Look Back in Anger hasn’t been produced in Saskatchewan in what I would call a generation,” said van Meenan. “Older audience member may remember when it was first produced and relate to the impact it had on the theatre world. Young people in audience will relate to the play’s theme of anger against the system — similar to what we saw recently with the Occupy movement. Young or old, everyone in the audience will have a very visceral, vivid experience.” Set in post-Second World War England, when the economy was in the tank and a cultural revolution raged, Look Back in Anger drops the audience into a cramped, filthy apartment and the boorish, sometimes violent, lower-class lives of Jimmy, his wife Alison and Jimmy’s buddy Cliff. Life is rough but predictable, until Alison’s childhood friend

• Janice Hough, on Star Trek: Into Darkness having a $70.6 million opening weekend in the U.S.— slightly disappointing to Paramount executives who had expected more: “On the other hand, $70.6 million is pretty impressive considering how many theater-goers went without a date.’’ • From Bill Littlejohn: “Tiger Woods has just dismissed the publicity firm in charge of restoring his good-guy image — who needs them when he has Sergio Garcia?” • A company has come up with an app for a breathalyzer for cellphones at a cost of $150. It is known as the iLohan. • Hough, on Jesse James apparently severing his pinky finger in a shop accident: “Ex-wife Sandra Bullock can/be forgiven for wishing he had severed something else.’’ • Torben Rolfsen, on the Charlotte Bobcats changing their name back to the Hor-

nets: “Marketing move or witness protection program?’’ • Japan named Ramen instant noodles as its best invention in the 20th century. I’m thinking the No. 1 invention in Canada was the garbage bag. Honourable mentions go to the zipper, five-pin bowling and the Abdominizer. • Hough, on an 80-year-old Japanese man becoming the oldest person to reach the top of Mount Everest: “And what were his first words at the top? Presumably, ‘You punks get off my mountain.’ ” • Hough on the same topic: “I wonder if he did the whole ascent with his right blinker on?’’ • From Littlejohn: “The Cleveland Cavaliers have won the lottery for the second time in three years. Unfortunately for them, in next year’s draft there doesn’t look like

Saskatonians, Sharapova got it covered By RJ Currie • ESPN praised Saskatonians at the Memorial Cup for belting out America’s anthem to help the singer who forgot the lyrics. Maybe ESPN missed the Saskatoon tweak: And the home of the Blades. • Maria Sharapova graces the May cover of Esquire Mexico. In Spanish, Sharapova’s name is spelled Mucho Dinero. • Shortly before Dion Phaneuf’s Leafs imploded against the Bruins, his wife, Elisha Cuthbert, had her TV series axed. In short, no Happy Endings. • One painful lesson I learned as a writer: if intoxicated, don’t try to impress a lady by saying you’re a cunning linguist. • What do you get if you combine NHL star Alex Ovechkin with Alec Guiness of Star Wars? Ovie-Wan Kenobi. • Tokyo reportedly has the most millionaires of anywhere in the world. A close second is the New York Yankees clubhouse. • The Memphis Grizzlies’ Tony Allen writhing on the floor in Game 2 against the Spurs might be the most artistic flopping act ever. Unless you count Bea Arthur’s nude painting. • According to a new study, young people born after 1983 drive 23 per cent less than ML41599.E27 Mary the previous generation. On the other hand,

their parents drive them 75 per cent more often. • Chuck Norris has publicly endorsed Tim Tebow. Maybe he’s confusing Tebow with TaeBo? • Show me a man who thinks baseball statisticians throw the most obscure facts into an argument and I’ll show you a guy who’s never had a wife. • Some ESPN reporters were surprised Niners coach Jim Harbaugh was chosen to drive the Indy 500 pace car. Less surprising? He finished second. • Metro UK reports Swaziland is banning witches from flying broomsticks above an altitude of 150 metres. In a related story, Kim Kardashian recently flew back from Africa. • At the Memorial Cup, Halifax sniper Martin Frk had a hat trick in a 9-2 thumping of the London Knights. From the opening drop, the Knights seemed to be, um, Frked? • A long-term study of chess players and musicians has led scientists to finally conclude practice doesn’t make perfect. Wouldn’t it have been easier to just follow the Cubs? • Ottawa right-winger Guilliame Latendresse told TSN hockey is a game of mistakes. In which case, the Leafs should be a dynasty.


there’s a Sam Bowie available.” • From TC Chong: “Orb loses in Preakness, still no Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. ‘So what am I, chopped liver?’ asked Miguel Cabrera.” • Have you noticed how the members of the Hockey Night in Canada panel roll their eyes when P.J. Stock is talking? Clearly, he should be sent down to TSN for seasoning. • Please, Hockey Night in Canada, keep Bob Cole doing the big games for the duration of the playoffs. His play-by-play reminds me of a young Bob Cole. • From Hough: “Apparently if we really want to get voter turnout up in the U.S., all we need to do is offer voters a free Powerball ticket.’’ • A Massachusetts priest was suspended for plagiarizing online sermons. As hard as that it is to believe, it’s the gospel truth.

• A few years ago, a 2,700-year-old body of a Caucasian with blue eyes was found in China. With the body were 789 grams of marijuana and a video of Rob Ford. • Chong, on Saskatoon singer Alexis Normand flubbing the U.S. national anthem at the Memorial Cup: “Still, she’s not quite as famous as her teacher, Christina Aguilera.’’ • Research says that 10 per cent of Facebook users are not real. Or as Manti Te’o said: “Tell me about it.’’ • Rolfsen, after Alex Edler knocked Eric Staal out of the world hockey championship: “It was the worst hit in Sweden since ABBA’s final album.’’ • Well-dressed single men in their 30s are most likely to get an upgrade on a flight, according to a survey of attendants. The least likely are Alec Baldwin.

Morocco Touring with other families proves popular


know trouble has arrived once the manic laughter begins. One daughter, usually the elder one, whispers something hilarious to the younger. This leads to some playful tickling or happy shoving, followed by good-natured wrestling — until a seagull-like shriek knifes the air. Tears start to fall. Red patches (where “she hit me!”) have to be examined. The next hour passes painfully slowly, taken up entirely by that ancient sibling tournament: “Will mom believe that you or I am in the right?” And for some reason, likely too many unbroken hours of togetherness, these melees occur much more frequently while on vacation. So for this past spring break, I decided to travel with a buffer zone: other families. We were going to join a tour. It wasn’t a decision I made lightly. I’m a wanderer by nature and tend to chafe when too many planned activities keep me from losing myself in back alleys and open markets. But after some searching, I thought I’d found the perfect compromise: a “small group adventure tour,” specifically for families, that included lots of free time in the itinerary. And where better to try this sort of adventure than exotic-yet-safe Morocco? So we headed off in mid-March, spending a few days on our own as a family in Fez, and then, just as the bickering had escalated well beyond the dull-roar stage, jumping a train to Marrakech to meet our touring counterparts. Our group was international: two families from Britain, a mother and daughter from Munich, and, much to our amazement, a family whom we’d never met, who lived just three blocks away from us in New York City. The first day was a shy one, with each family exchanging pleasantries, but pretty much sticking within our own groupings as we drove up into the spectacular Atlas Mountains. Though Morocco is thought of as a desert country — it’s home to the Sahara, after all — a good 40 per cent of it is covered by towering peaks, some so tall they’re snow-capped much of the year. Our

And that meant the free time I’d anticipated turned into group time, because my daughters considered heading off with mom and dad a punishment. Consequently, our unwieldy gang crowded the tiny streets of ancient medinas together and every meal was taken at places that could accommodate 16 people without a reservation (so not always the best meals). To my daughters, this was one of our most successful family vacations. And like most parents, when the kids are happy, well, so am I. There are a number of family itineraries in Morocco.

they actually have a hairstyle. My style is called, “This is what it looked like when I gave up this morning.” Remember the good old days of hair? You had two women’s hair styles to covet: Farrah Fawcett and the blonde chick from ABBA. You had two shampoos to choose from: Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific (pretty straightforward on the branding there) and Agree (someone was asleep at the advertising board room table here). There were no special botanicals, unless you count the beer in that one stinky shampoo. We didn’t even know what botanicals were. Nowadays, you can’t even find anything that’s not infused with yak’s milk and rose hips or some other weird combination for tone and structure. A trip to the beauty parlour (as it was called in our hometown) was a big deal. It was still a luxury for a lot of people to see a hairdresser and therefore, many moms doubled as stylists at home using products such as Frost n’ Glow and Toni — the ever-popular home permanent solution

which did one of two things: nothing at all (sorry, your Toni didn’t take) or produced a head of curls closely resembling that of Trixie, the family poodle. “Oh, it’s really tight now, but it’ll relax.” It didn’t relax. The ’70s and ’80s were dark decades for hair, simple but dark. Some women love going to the salon. I am not one of them. Why? Because I am forced to confess all my hair sins: “So, have we been cutting our own bangs again?” “What? No! … well, maybe just the once.” “OK, you’re using a deep conditioner once a week, right?” “Um, yeah, of course! Actually no.” I tried a trendy hairstyle once, the angled bob, where the back is short and the sides are longer. It looked great when I left the salon. In three weeks, I looked like a basset hound. I’m sticking to long, boring and hopefully, straight. Wish me luck.

It all begins with a wild set of headlights. hold feature that keeps the car from rolling back when stopped on an incline (helpful when switching to the gas pedal from the brake pedal when you’re ready to take off). The rigid body structure uses considerable amounts of high-strength steel that, combined with numerous aluminum body panels, helps keep the car below the 1,820-kilogram mark. That’s roughly 45 kilograms lighter than the RL. The RLX clings to its V6 roots by using a 310-horsepower 3.5-litre unit that produces 272 poundfeet of torque. By comparison, the RL’s 3.7-litre V6 made 300 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. The engine prefers premium fuel, but the RLX is rated at 10.5 l/100 km in the city and 6.4 on the highway, which is impressively down from the RL’s 12.2/8.2 rating. The sole transmission choice is a six-speed automatic with paddle-shift controls. On the road and on the track at California’s Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon), the new V6 gives the quiet-riding RLX plenty of spunk, although the engine sounds from the Mercedes-Benz E350 and BMW 5-series that Acura offered up for comparison testing were more appealing. Track driving also revealed the strengths of Acura’s Precision All-Wheel Steer system. This standard technology reacts to steering and braking inputs for added control. When cornering, the rear wheels point slightly in the direction of the turn, thus reducing the front-wheel-drive’s tendency to continue in a straight line even with the steering wheel turned (called understeer). During braking, however, both rear wheels are automatically angled toward the centre of the car

nitely showing, but it easily beats the rest of Acura’s sedan fleet when it comes to appearance. Perhaps surprisingly, its overall dimensions — length, width and height — differ only slightly from the RL. However, a five-centimetre stretch between the front and rear wheels (in addition to an equal reduction in the length of the snout) contributes to a significant visual impact. The RLX’s more aggressively styled front fenders, smoothed-out grille and unique multi-reflector headlight pods also contribute to a distinctly premium look. Much of the between-the-wheels increase gives the RLX an impressive amount of rear-seat legroom that puts its key Japanese and German competitors to shame. The rest of the interior also impresses, with an elegant dashboard and control-panel layout, inviting and supportive leather-covered seats and a floor console that can be opened from the driver, or passenger’s side. The console also features an electric parking brake (replacing the traditional handle) plus a

2014 Acura RLX

something a bit bigger, more luxurious and more technically proficient than the TL sedan.

akaburi” is the word Acura’s project leader Yousuke Sekino uses in describing the 2014 RLX sedan. It means “exhilarating” in Japanese and if any car in Honda’s premium division fits that description, this is it. Acura has been noticeably bereft of a truly toplevel flagship model with takaburi for some time. The long-in-the-tooth RL sedan that resembled a slightly enlarged Accord from two generations ago never really cut it with those seeking flash and dash. The replacement RLX, arriving by early spring, likely won’t pry anyone from their status-mobiles models displaying three-pointed stars, interconnected rings or airplane-propeller logos. But at least Acura offers some compelling reasons for having the valet gang park one for you in its assigned stall. The first thing you notice about the RLX is its handsome sheetmetal. The car’s Honda roots are defi-


for maximum control. Although not obvious in flat-out driving, the RLX certainly feels poised and precise in tight turns and provides a no-sweat experience when braking at high speeds. The RLX arrives with an abundance of peoplepampering content, but you will need to shell out more than the $50,000 base price to add a number of collision-mitigating features, the navigation system, premium leather package and your choice of two high-end audio systems. The RLX is a giant leap forward for Acura and is comparable to more established luxury brands in style and content, with a smidgen of takaburi tossed in for good measure.

Type Four-door, front-wheel-drive mid-luxury sedan Engines (hp) 3.5-litre SOHC V6 (310) Transmission Six-speed automatic with paddle-shift controls Market position The RLX is the badly needed ingredient in Acura’s vehicle mix that provides a choice for buyers who like the brand, but want

FullThrottle Finally, a hybrid system lands at the top of the food chain, where it really matters


or the first time in my life, I feel like if I don’t get a hybrid, I’ll be left in the dust. No, it’s not all the Toyota Prius models running around, or even the electric Fisker Karma that have me feeling this way. It’s actually Ferrari’s fault. Take one 800-horsepower V12 engine and add a 163-horsepower electric motor, and you have a car that will run circles around the company’s former flagship model called the Enzo. They call the new car the LaFerrari. It’s also stunningly gorgeous. Suddenly, my car, an Aston Martin with a V12 engine, feels hopelessly outgunned by technology. That’s right, it took Ferrari, with a million-dollar exotic car, and not Toyota, or Nissan with its Leaf or Chevrolet with its Volt, to render all other cars obsolete, overnight. How did this happen, you ask? Well, it’s not that complicated, really. When a company such as Ferrari, known for making some of the most desirable objects on the planet, views it as a competitive advantage to adopt a hybrid system, then everyone else will have to, too. As much as Toyota is likely proud of the sheer number of hybrids it has sold, none of that has the outright impact of the LaFerrari. It could very well be the turning point as competing companies attempt to match it. In fact McLaren launched its hybrid model, called the P1, around the same time LaFerrari hit the show-car circuit. The point is that to be adopted by all, hybrid systems have to land at the top of the food chain, and guess what? Here it is. Is the world paying attention? You bet. While the systems used in these models might actually help lower emissions and improve fuel economy, they first and foremost are performance enhancers. For the LaFerrari, there’s a lot of romance as the system is a direct transplant from Ferrari’s Formula One racing program. It’s one of the most direct connections between the racetrack and the street, and that, quite frankly, gets me all revved up. How does it work? Kind of like any other hybrid, really, with a few very notable exceptions. The small electric

motor is attached right to the back of the seven-speed transmission. It’s powered by two lightweight batteries that straddle the V12 engine, right behind the passenger compartment, mounted very low to keep the centre of gravity low to ground to aid handling. The batteries are charged during braking and when the V12 is putting out excess torque. How the engine and the electric motor work together is the really cool part. Electric motors generally provide instant low-speed torque -- and a lot of it -- which is how it assists the gas engine. This allows the 6.3-litre V12 to be tuned for high-speed power, which normally compromises low-speed drivability. With the electric motor digging way down low, who cares how the V12 performs at low revs? No one. The system, however, has no ability to run in an electric-only mode. One would presume because doing so would mean the battery packs would end up being bigger, which would add more weight. Speaking of which, the system does add a couple of hundred kilograms, so the LaFerrari endeavors to make up for it with some unique tactics. For example, it uses lightweight paint, super-thin carbonfibre body panels and a cockpit that doesn’t use traditional seats. Rather, the interior is upholstered carbon fibre with adjustable foot pedals and steering wheel. Without seats that bolt in, the cockpit is actually smaller and therefore lighter. The technology is simply fantastic and the best part, aside from this masterpiece, is that Ferrari has designed the system to be modular; it wants to port it to other models. This sets the stage for two classes of vehicles: hybrid; and non-hybrid. And to be players in this arena, manufacturers are going to have to take the hybrid route. They’ll have no choice. I love my Aston Martin, but I have no desire to be left in the performance dust. How soon before Corvette and Viper adopt similar systems? Or Hyundai? How long before the aftermarket begins offering hybrid systems as power adders for classic cars? (Buy stock in the first company that offers it, by the way.) Who knows for sure, but when we look back on how all this changed, we’ll know what car made the difference.
