RAINY DAY PEOPLE: Mary and Warren McCool stayed relatively dry on a recent walk/ride in the rain

with their two-year-old grandson, Thiago.

espite some pushback from residents, city council agreed Wednesday to a major $700,000 upgrade for cyclists along a stretch of a popular bike route on the edge of Chinatown. The most significant piece of the upgrade along the Adanac bikeway will see a separated bike lane built from Gore Street west along Union Street to Main Street. The lane, which will serve cyclists travelling west, will run in front of businesses in the 200-block of Union between the sidewalk and reconfigured parking spots. Cyclists travelling east along that stretch of Union will continue to share the road with cars but there will be more space with the removal of 20 parking spots. The city will add 50 parking spots around the corner on Main. Further upgrades along the bikeway will see the short stretch of Union between Main and Quebec closed to vehicles. Separated bike lanes will connect with the west side of that closed road, with one link running along Expo Boulevard to Carrall Street and the other connecting with the bike lane outside Science World. City staff’s recommendation that a bike barrier be built on the east side of the intersection at Union and Gore, which would close the road to vehicles traveling east and west, has been put on hold. Vision Coun. Geoff Meggs successfully requested city staff be given another month to consult with residents and businesses about the proposed barrier and discuss traffic-calming measures for the neighbourhood. “The goal here is to provide safe infrastructure for everybody,” Meggs told council. “So we can’t really go down the road of putting in something that will resolve a local traffic issue and risk anybody who might be counting on a fire truck to arrive in a timely way.” See NPA on page 4

Roll-outofparkboard’sOneCardprogram‘ill-thoughtout’

‘ONECARD’ PROGRAM TO REPLACE INDIVIDUAL CENTRE MEMBERSHIPS SANDRA THOMAS Staff writer

K

illarney Community Centre Association president Ainslie Kwan said she’s confused by a new system-wide membership card being rolled out by the park board, which will allow access to 22 community centres as well as the city’s pools, rinks and gyms. The park board announced this week it’s launching the OneCard, which will eventually replace individual community centre memberships. Until now, each centre had its own membership cards. The OneCard program is being introduced at some community centres July 8, and depending on whether it’s ratified, at the remaining facilities in September. “We have always endorsed the principles behind the OneCard program,” said Kwan. “But the way they rolled it out shows how illthought out this was.” Kwan explained that in order to qualify as a non-profit society, according to the provincial Society’s Act, a group must have a membership list. To continue to qualify, the association recommended to the park board that facilities be open to anyone with a valid membership from any centre, she said. “But, now users won’t need to be a member because, ‘The park board says I don’t have to be,’” said Kwan. The park board has agreed to reimburse community centre associations for the loss of membership revenues. Killarney charges $4

Ainslie Kwan, president of Killarney Community Centre Association, endorses universal access but has issues with how the OneCard program is being implemented. per adult, $8 a family and $3 for seniors for a total of about $20,000 a year. Vision Vancouver park board commissioner Niki Sharma is convinced the OneCard program is much needed and will be well received. Sharma added the goal is to provide universal access to all park board facilities. “Now every centre will have one card instead of a patchwork of cards,” said Sharma. “Right now there are 20 different cards with differing

levels of memberships.” Sharma noted the OneCard program is a standard in many municipalities and universities across Canada. She added it also allows residents living on low or fixed incomes more dignity when presenting their card for entrance to a community centre. “They don’t have to use a special card and it allows them more respect,” said Sharma. The OneCard is just one component of a joint

operating agreement under discussion with 12 of the city’s 20 community centre associations. Killarney has refused to enter into those discussions due to disagreements over the proposed joint operating agreement. But Dave Pasin, a board member of the West End Community Centre Association in negotiations with the park board, said he’s also confused by the program. “I don’t think there’s anyone who has a problem with universal access,” said Dave Pasin. “Access is critical. But however, the way the park board has done it is straight out of Bizarro World.” Pasin, who was unsuccessful in a bid for an NPA park board seat in the last municipal election, said the criteria and costs of the program are so vague it’s obvious it was rolled out last minute. The park board said publicly that negotiations with the community centre associations should be completed by July, but there is still much work to be done. Pasin believes the park board was under pressure to roll “anything” out before that deadline, so came up with the OneCard. He also questioned the timing of the announcement. “They released it at 11 o’clock at night to minimize the damage,” said Pasin. “It’s like the government making bad news announcements at 4 o’clock on a Friday afternoon. They hope by Monday everyone will have forgotten about it.” sthomas@vancourier.com twitter.com/sthomas10

NPA wants more discussion on Adanac bikeway CONTINUED from page 1

Cyclists on the Adanac street bikeway at the intersection of Main Street.

NPA Coun. George Affleck argued unsuccessfully that a one month reprieve be given to discuss the entire overhaul to the Adanac bikeway but his suggestion was rejected by the ruling Vision Vancouver council. “We can consult for a great long period of time,” said Vision Coun. Andrea Reimer. “But where the community doesn’t have agreement, we need to provide some leadership, some opinion on the matter.” Council’s decision came after it heard from residents and business owners concerned about the lack of consultation on the overall plan to upgrade the bikeway. Frank Gauthier, president of the strata at the V6A condo complex at 221 Union, said none of the 142 owners received notice of the proposed changes to the bikeway. “You failed us and you failed us badly,” said Gauthier, noting he wasn’t opposed to cycling upgrades but wanted some say in the proposals. Jerry Dobrovolny, the city’s director of transportation, said notification letters for the residents of V6A were left with the building’s concierge. “They didn’t want us running around the halls in their building,” Dobrovolny said. Some speakers suggested a piece of green space tucked in between the 200-block Union and a viaduct ramp could be used to create a bike lane that would alleviate the need for any changes to the road. “We have

a green space that is underutilized across from us, and we are [proposing] to move concrete and utilizing taxpayer dollars and not using it?” said Steve Da Cruz, a cyclist and owner of The Parker vegetarian restaurant at 237 Union St. Dobrovolny said city staff examined the option of using the green space but concluded part of the viaduct extended too far north and would create a “pinch point” for a path. That said, Dobrovolny suggested the green space could be considered for a pathway that would enhance the changes to the bikeway, which sees 4,000 bikes per day along the stretch of Union in the summer mixing with 5,000 cars per day. Pete Fry, a cyclist and chairperson of the Strathcona Residents’ Association, said he was glad council agreed to hold off on the barrier at Union and Gore until more discussion with neighbours. Fry told council the community is “generally supportive” of infrastructure for bikes but that there were ongoing concerns with safety and how cyclists mix with motorists and pedestrians. “It’s not that we’re opposed to bike routes but we want to see something that works for everybody and works for the residents of the community — not just the commuters who travel through it,” Fry told the Courier after the council meeting. mhowell@vancourier.com twitter.com/Howellings

news Social housing shuffle 12TH & CAMBIE with Mike Howell

T

he bad news is the Jubilee House at 508 Helmcken St. that has 87 units devoted to social housing will probably be demolished. If that happens, the good news is the residents of the Jubilee House will move into a new building across the street in the 1000block of Richards Street that will include 162 housing units. For all this to work, city council has to approve an application from Brenhill Developments Ltd. to construct a 36-storey tower with 448 residential units on the same site as Jubilee House. It’s all part of an interesting land exchange that council is considering as it continues to find ways to get more social and affordable housing built in Vancouver. On Tuesday, council referred Brenhill’s application to a public hearing. The staff report, however, made it clear the new 162unit building must be built and have an occupancy permit before the tower can go ahead. That’s because the city wants to ensure the current residents from the Jubilee get a place to stay and provide an additional 75 units to renters at the “low end of the market.” The developer says it will kick in $24 million towards the $30.6 million construction of the social housing building and another $1 million for the city’s affordable housing fund. The balance of the $30.6 million construction cost (up to $6.6 million) would be funded by the city from the proceeds of the sale of the Jubilee property to Brenhill. Though the project is appealing to many, there are those who oppose it because of the

tower’s height and scale, its effect on views, shadowing, more traffic and worries about “social issues” related to residents of the social housing building. Supporters of the project say the neighbourhood is a good location for more social housing and the land exchange is a good way to get more housing built when senior levels of government are not providing the funding. Additionally, supporters say the 1985-era Jubilee House needs repairs and there is a demand for more rental units in the city; at least 110 of the units in the tower will be for rent. The tower’s ground floor will also have retail and a private pre-school/kindergarten. No date has been set for the public hearing.

CYCLING ACROBATICS

A few entries ago, I brought you up to date on how many tickets the Vancouver Police Department issued in 2012 to cyclists for not wearing a helmet: 1,787. I also mentioned that I was puzzled by another ticket handed out to a cyclist for failing to ride on a seat. I think I got my answer, courtesy of a reader, who witnessed some acrobatics on the Granville strip by one particular cyclist. Take it away, Marilyn… “What was most unusual about him was that he rode his bike sitting on the handlebars facing backwards and he always looked like he was having a whole lot of fun. The first time I saw him, I burst out laughing. But as I’m a bus driver, it soon became frustrating as he rode very slowly. I’d say he’s a good candidate for the ticket for ‘failing to ride on seat.’” Note to all the kids who just read that: Don’t even think about trying this at home…or on the street. Go do your homework instead. mhowell@vancourier.com twitter.com/Howellings

I first started writing about the fate of the aging marginal wharf at Jericho Beach in 2008. While some thought the wharf had historical significance, others dubbed it a safety hazard and having a negative impact on the environmentally sensitive eco-system surrounding it. The wharf was built more than 60 years ago as part of the former Jericho Seaplane Base. Jericho Beach was home to the Pacific Coast Station of the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1921 to 1945. In the end it was a report from Fisheries and Oceans Canada that sealed the wharf’s fate. The report showed fish habitat and other marine life around the wharf was being compromised due to toxic contaminants leeching into the water from old creosote pilings. So the park board voted to demolish the wharf and more than a year ago began a restoration project that’s just recently been completed. Next Wednesday, the public is invited to a community celebration to mark the completion of the restoration project, which includes interpretive signs, a lookout with viewing binoculars, and native vegetation and landscaping that runs from the waterfront to the forest.

BOARDWALK EMPIRE The first boardwalk to be built in Stanley Park along Cathedral Trail will improve the flow of water and reconnects a divided wetland, which in turn helps the area’s wildlife. The 75-metre-long elevated boardwalk, located just north of the Lost Lagoon stone bridge where Rawlings Trail meets North Lagoon Drive, is made out of western red cedar and replaces a gravel path in one of the most biologically rich areas of Stanley Park. The walk was built to help protect plants and soil from being trampled, while improving drainage and allowing for the increased movement of small mammals and amphibians. In addition, the boardwalk improves pedestrian safety as it now links to a visible crosswalk. A second smaller boardwalk was built at Tunnel Trail near Stanley Park Drive and Pipeline Road and there are plans to build a third boardwalk at Beaver Lake. The need for a boardwalk system to control access to sensitive habitat and address its fragmentation was identified in the Stanley Park Ecological Action Plan. sthomas@vancourier.com twitter.com/sthomas10

Insite operator questions new federal legislation FEDS SET OUT LONG LIST OF CRITERIA FOR PROSPECTIVE SUPERVISED INJECTION SITES MIKE HOWELL Staff writer

T

he operator and funder of the city’s supervised injection site is worried about the detrimental health effects new federal legislation could have on the future of injection sites in Vancouver and the rest of the country. Vancouver Coastal Health posted a statement on its website that questions the federal government’s introduction last week of legislation to “raise the bar” for applications to renew or open injection sites. “Vancouver Coastal Health has reviewed the legislation and we question how practical the approval process outlined in this bill may be with the volume of information required, and the significant public resources needed to do the work to meet the requirements,” the statement said. “It would be extremely disappointing if this bill creates a bureaucratic process that prevents the implementation of an evidencebased public health initiative where there is a clear need.” The health agency, in conjunction with the PHS Community Services Society, has operated the Insite injection site on East Hastings since it opened in 2003 as a three-

year scientific experiment. A series of successful court challenges led to the Supreme Court of Canada ruling in 2011 to allow Insite to continue operating indefinitely. However,Insitehastorenew its exemption under Canada’s drug laws in March 2014. Injection sites require an exemption from Health Canada under a section of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act in order to legally operate. The federal government’s introduction of the “Respect for Communities Act” sets out a long list of criteria that an applicant must meet to get an exemption to operate an injection site. The criterion includes the need for an applicant to provide information outlining the viewsofpolice,municipalleaders, public health officials and provincial health ministers. The applicant is also required to provide documentation that shows the site’s expected impact on crime rates, treatment options for drug users, the public health reasons for needing such a site and evidence there are resources to sustain the site’s operations. Mayor Gregor Robertson and his predecessors, Sam Sullivan, Larry Campbell and Philip Owen have all supported Insite. So has the province’s

chief medical health officer, Dr. Perry Kendall. Police Chief Jim Chu is also on record as supporting the facility, although the Vancouver Police Department’s union president Tom Stamatakis has questioned Insite’s effectiveness. Stamatakis is also the president of the Canadian Police Association and his comments appeared in the federal government’s press release announcing the in-

troduction of the bill. “Front-line law enforcement strongly believes that it is important for there to be a high threshold for applicants to meet before any supervised consumption site can be considered,” Stamatakis said. “While treating drug addiction is an important goal, my experience in Vancouver is that these sites also lead to an increase in criminal behaviour and disorder

in the surrounding community and have a significant impact on police resources, and that’s why it will be vital for the views of local police to be taken into account.” An email circulated by Jenni Byrne of the Conservative Party of Canada is urging people to join an online campaign to support the new legislation. “The Trudeau Liberals and Mulcair NDP are against us,”

Historic Douglas elementary building in leasing limbo DREW MCLACHLAN Contributing writer

T

he historic Sir James Douglas elementary school joins Sexsmith community school in leasing limbo after being deemed seismically unsafe for students. While a new facility is being built on the opposite end of the large Victoria Drive property, the Vancouver School Board is looking for a partner to lease the old building, which will either be cost-neutral or bring in revenue for the school board. Preferable options for the VSB would be an art gallery, a post-secondary facility or a community centre. “We haven’t been successful in the areas of interest we have been looking for,” said school board chair Patti Bacchus. “Interest has come from other schools, but we’re constructing the new building because the old one is not safe for student use. We’re still looking for a new use that would

suit the community.” In other cases, the VSB has been able to upgrade buildings in order to meet safety standards, but in the case of Sir James Douglas, constructing a new building on the same property was the most viable option — leaving an empty heritage building behind. “We know that people in Vancouver value heritage buildings,” Bacchus said. “The City of Vancouver has requirements as well. They want to keep heritage buildings and won’t give us license to develop or demolish the building until we explore other options.” Sir James Douglas is in a similar situation as other heritage schools: Carleton Hall, and more recently Sexsmith elementary school on Ontario Street near 59th Avenue. Carleton Hall was “charred beyond ruins,” according to Green Thumb Theatre’s artistic director Patrick McDonald before his company leased the building and had it restored. The deal took place in the 11th

hour — the province had already committed $75,000 to its demolition. With Sexsmith, however, the VSB has been unsuccessful in finding a suitable leaser and is now considering allowing it to be used for commercial or residential purposes if it can save the building. Bacchus noted that a company like Green Thumb Theatre would be a welcomed solution for Sir James Douglas, and that the VSB

is willing to hold out for a suitable partner. “One of the nice factors is that we’re not pressed for time,” Bacchus said. “There have been other situations in the past where people are looking for solutions while the building is scheduled for demolition. With Sir James Douglas we have time to look at other options.” Drew_McLachlan@hotmail.com twitter.com/NotDrowzyD 2 0 1 2

Sanctuary pond a bird-brained idea

O

nce again, the Vancouver Park Board is making a sham of public consultation. This time they are accompanied in this misguided adventure by the city-controlled Pacific National Exhibition (PNE). While the park board is still in the midst of clearing up the mess it made of its relationships with the city’s community centres, it has engaged in a bit of bullying involving the Hastings Community Association. The particular issue is a “Learn to Fish” program to teach East Side kids to become anglers. It’s a charming idea to be sure. I can still fondly recall warm summer days as a child catching perch my mom would cook up for lunch. But this particular program has meant threatening one of the city’s major refuges for migratory and resident birds by turning it into a fishing hole open to anyone with a license. The specific area is the small man-made pond and surrounding bush known as the Sanctuary, a four-hectare bit of tranquility located on the PNE grounds. It was established as a wildlife habitat back in 1999. And while there was some initial thought the body of water would be suitable for fish and fishing, it instead evolved into one of the city’s three major greenways, including Stanley Park and Queen Elizabeth Park, which support spring and fall migrations of birds as well as breeding grounds for resident birds. A remarkable 130 species of birds have been identified there, including the relatively rare green heron I was lucky enough to see the other morning. The idea of stocking the pond and opening it up to fishing was raised more than a year ago. There was a tour of the site led by Dave Hutch, a city planner attached to the PNE. It included Donalda Greenwell-Baker of the Hastings Park Conservancy, a group of environmentalists who, among other things, act as advisers to the Hastings Park Community Board. It was explained at the time that the pond would be stocked with trout and an area would be cleared at the north end of the pond, a favoured nesting site for water birds, and a ramp and floating dock would be installed. Greenwell-Baker says her group was troubled by the project from the outset because of the impact it would have on birds. In July 2012, the Conservancy executive voted unanimously to oppose it. But, she says, they heard nothing more about the project until it turned up as a line item in the Hasting Park Community Association program guide for 2013. Conservancy members immediately went to the community centre board to explain their objections. And according to community center board member Sherry Breshears, her board decided to ask the park board and the PNE to put the program on pause. At this point the dock was not yet installed and the lake was yet to be stocked. The park board bulldozed past the community board (no surprise there) and said it would run the program if the community centre refused. In March of this year, Greenwell-Baker wrote a letter to the park board stating in detail their objections to the project. Ho-hum. Meanwhile, the program continues. A B.C. non-profit, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. will restock the lake every spring and fall. This coincides with major migratory and breeding activities of birds. They have also paid for the $30,000 dock. But then they have a vested interest in all of this. The society is funded by revenues from the sale of freshwater fishing licenses. They are also, according to park board chair Sarah Blyth, the group that will assess “any impact on bird nesting concerns.” Ironically, this threat comes at a time when both city council and the park board passed motions declaring support for a wild bird strategy. The city even created a committee made up of wild bird experts among others to support the strategy. The committee was not consulted on this project. But others have raised objections, including George Clulow with the B.C. Field Ornithologists. And Stanley Park Ecology Society biologist Robyn Worcester, who is both a fisher and birder, says there is no question that fishing has an impact on bird life. How much impact will only be known over time. agarr@vancourier.com

Thwart youth idealism at your own peril

I

recently attended my niece’s graduation dinner. The girls looked catwalk-ready in their gowns, heels and makeup, while most of the boys appeared to be auditioning for adulthood (or perhaps a high school stage production of Glengarry Glen Ross). My niece grew up in one of the wealthiest areas in the Lower Mainland and attended one of the best high schools. Her background and social connections – to say nothing of her high grades and hard work - will serve her well as she makes her way into the world. It’s always risky to generalize about generational differences, with unique personalities branded with abstract nouns like “boomer” and “Gen X.” That said, countless North American helicopter parents have raised their offspring in a relay race lifestyle of playdates, athletic events and homework. They have told their kids that everything they create is brilliant, every accomplishment golden. But what happens when a generational sense of entitlement collides with shrinking work and wage opportunities? For Millennials without the privileges of my niece, who suspect they will be denied the living standards of their parents and grandparents, I would expect some sense of rage. Yet there is an untapped greatness in young people, even when it isn’t inflated by parental overpraise. The educator Joseph Chilton Pearce mused on youthful idealism in his 1992 book, Evolution’s End. “First, starting at around age eleven, an idealistic image of life grows in intensity throughout the middle teens. Second, somewhere around age fourteen or fifteen a great expectation arises that ‘something tremendous is supposed to happen.’ Third, adolescents sense a secret, unique greatness in themselves that seeks expression. They gesture toward the heart when trying to express any of this, a significant clue to the whole affair.” When teens begin to recognize the hypocrisy and cant of the adult world, Pearce observed, some begin to effect postures of cynicism and rebellion — an understandable response, if not always an adaptive one. On the one hand, kids hear how our way of life is trashing the planet. On the other hand, the educational system, the media, and their own parents tell them they must compete for success in this very system. Some kids recognize this crazy-making cognitive dissonance for what it is, and feel it in the place that Pearce identified: their hearts. With their budding “inner greatness,” the hearts of adolescents — male and female alike — are an intergenerational, renewable resource for social planners. We all know military recruitment draws heavily on the hero archetype, something that resonates with male teens, even if they don’t play first-person shooter games. But how can it be that a kid just out of high school is considered old enough to kill foreigners but still too young to drink alcohol in a public place? Likely because the adolescent “inner greatness” phase offers a narrow window for cannon fodder recruiting appeals. Many youth, idealistic or otherwise, have a very conflicted attitude toward our lifestyle of consumption. Perhaps this discontent played a part in the Vancouver hockey riot in 2011, which involved more than a young, drunken mob posing for Facebook shots. The throng of convicted rioters and looters included a third year biochemistry student from UBC and a 17-year-old “star athlete” water polo player who tried setting fire to a police car. So this wasn’t just about barbarians from the ’burbs going on a meaningless bender. It was more like a class-blind rage among young adults, which found a convenient spark outside one of our corporate thunderdomes. The criminal behaviour begged for punishment, but it was as much a socio-economic storm warning as a beer-fuelled microburst. The writer Michael Meade once noted that “in many tribal cultures, it was said that if the boys were not initiated into manhood, if they were not shaped by the skills and love of elders, then they would destroy the culture. If the fires that innately burn inside youths are not intentionally and lovingly added to the hearth of community, they will burn down the structures of culture, just to feel the warmth.” British Columbians live in a beautiful setting, mostly free from the privations that afflict people in the developing world. But any society, rich or poor, that thwarts the idealism of youth does so at its own peril. Best wishes to the grads of 2013: we’ve left you some tough homework. www.geoffolson.com

READER HAS BEEF WITH MEATLESS MONDAY

To the editor: Re: “Meaty issue prompts Vancouver’s decree,” May 14. Vancouver was the first city to proclaim June 10 “Meatless Monday,” encouraging people to abstain from meat products one day per week. Program advocates cite meat production as contributing to climate change, water pollution, deforestation, increased greenhouse gas and avian and other animal flus. I’m not surprised Vancouver is the first and only Canadian city to officially endorse this program. Even Toronto recognizes this idea isn’t all it’s “cracked” up to be. The B.C. cattle industry is a large part of the economic engine for the province. Most are family operations sincerely caring about the animals as well as the land and environment under their stewardship. Blaming the cattle industry as a cause of deforestation is a fabrication. The last land-clearing project in B.C. for agricultural purposes probably occurred 50 years ago. Most cattle grazing occurs on Crown land jointly shared by agriculture, forestry, mining, recreation and tourism. All animals, including man, produce gas contributing to global warming. The greater metropolitan area of Vancouver, with more than 2.3 million residents, is the most populous in western Canada. A recent study reveals a person will pass gas 14 times per day. The average “gas passing” is composed of 59 per cent nitrogen, 21 per cent hydrogen, nine per cent carbon dioxide, seven per cent methane and three per cent oxygen. In 2011, there were 520,000 head of beef cattle in B.C. The greenhouse gasses produced by

FISHING IN TROUBLED WATERS

To the editor: Re: “Fish pond in sanctuary doesn’t fly with neighbours,” June 5. The Sanctuary at Hastings Park was opened in 1999. There have been 130 different bird species identified in the Sanctuary, some of which have nested there. This small green space within the boundaries of Hastings Park is situated next to Playland and Hastings Street. It is a fragile developing ecosystem that needs careful stewardship to support the species that have felt safe enough to make the Sanctuary home. For this reason, the urban fishing initiative is a problem. Experts in responsible maintenance of natural habitat raised the alarm with respect to this fishing course that has already threatened the safety of nesting birds. Despite the warnings, the fishing program was approved by the PNE Board. This initiative does not teach children about natural habitat or the environment. Fishing in the pond in the Sanctuary may be fun, but it is definitely not fun for the natural creatures trying to establish themselves there. The new dock and increased traffic of fishers is damaging to the Sanctuary.

A11

Sadly, it is no longer a Sanctuary for the creatures it was intended to protect. Let us teach our children to learn about nature from observation. Let us teach them to care for the natural environment, not exploit it. Hastings Park Conservancy members have volunteered for years to educate the community about this small natural green space. Volunteers regularly offer Nature Walks and Bird Walks. The schedule can be found at the Hastings Park Conservancy website. Gale Tyler, Vancouver

CITY MANAGER IS WORTH EVERY PENNY To the editor: Re: “Manager, cop and lawyer top civic earners,” May 15. I commend the Courier for its fine coverage of city affairs, to wit, the supposedly high salary paid to a city manager Penny Ballem. I am sure Ms. Ballem is worth every penny of her salary and I am also sure that she is dedicated to the vision of Vancouver as the “greenest city in the world.” The proposed Oakridge development near Cambie and 41st is a case in point. I wouldn’t be surprised if this latest architectural coup wins some prizes for its green vision. We can all be proud of these kinds of developments that add needed density and provide quality living at affordable prices. The vision of Ms. Ballem is second only to that of the councillors and financiers promoting this development.

PORTSIDE PUB HOSTS COMMON COURTESY PARTY COMMUNITY CALENDAR with Sandra Thomas

HASTINGS

The lineup of artists performing at the PNE’s Summer Nights Concerts series literally has something for everyone, especially those who can remember the lyrics to “Surfin’ USA.” And hopefully the Beach Boys will also remember the lyrics when they take the stage Aug. 23 for The Fair at the PNE, which runs Aug. 17 to Sept. 2. The Summer Nights Concert schedule begins Aug. 17, with singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge and continues with Dean Brody, Great Big Sea, Colin James, Sam Roberts Band, Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans, Foreigner, the Proclaimers, Big Wreck, Martina McBride, REO Speedwagon, Lights and the headband and leather pants-friendly finale, An Evening With Loverboy Sept. 2. Another highlight of the series is the Jackson Unity Tour Aug. 18, complete with brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon who, from what I’ve read online, bring their Motown sound to the stage while performing in front of huge video images of their late brother Michael. I would actually pay extra to see a hologram moonwalk by the late King of Pop as he joined his brothers on the WestJet Concert Stage, but I guess we’ll have to settle for Jermaine strutting his stuff in skin-tight leggings. (I read some reviews.) All concerts are free with admission to the Fair, but superfans looking for reserved seating can purchase a limited number of seats in the new WestJet Fan Zone.

That means kids who might not normally have the chance to attend hockey games, theatre, musical performances or festivals can go. The party, sponsored by Save On Meats, also includes performances by Sex With Strangers, Phoenix Thunderbird, Jody Glenham, Port Authority, Gold & Youth, Sunshine and Ultraviolence. Entrance is by donation, but $20 will ensure you receive a copy of the band’s new album. Doors open at 8 p.m.

CANADA-WIDE This event didn’t launch in Vancouver, but is in support of Canadian Blood Services so anyone can donate. It’s also in memory of my dear friend and mentor Penny Lett, a former reporter with the Chilliwack Progress newspaper, who died very unexpectedly in March. Prior to her death, Lett had donated 125 times, which means she helped save up to 375 lives as each unit of blood is separated into three parts — red blood cells, platelets and plasma. Progress reporter Jenna Hauck has organized a two-month long blood drive in Lett’s honour, which is launching in Chilliwack with several clinics, but she’s hoping donors from across Canada will also step up and do their part. Hauck’s goal is to have 125 units donated in Lett’s name by getting people to sign up at blood.ca. For instructions on how to join the In Memory of Penny Lett blood drive, read Hauck’s column at theprogress.com. sthomas@vancourier.com twitter.com/sthomas10

SPECIAL ADVERTISING FEATURE

Father knows best GIFTS TO THRILL DAD AT THE BARBECUE

W

ith Father’s Day right around the corner this Sunday, you can go back to the old stand-by tie and golf tees package, or you can step up to something that will come in handy every time your dad (or anyone else) fires up the grill. The grilling experts at Broil King have some suggestions for every type of grill master, so take a look at these:

THE NEAT FREAK – For the dad that likes to keep the grill spotless before or after a meal, a heavy duty grid brush is a must. Recommended is one with a ‘grime guard’. Broil King says it will keep the grill clean as well as your grill master. Pair it with a biodegradable grill cleaner and let dad worry about cooking, not cleaning. THE FAMILY MAN – Trying to balance adult meals with kid friendly choices can be tricky, but burger presses and grill baskets make it easy to accommodate everyone. Sliders are the perfect size for little hands, and a basket that can grill at least six at time will help keep hungry mouths fed. A stuffed burger press is perfect for creating unique flavour combinations for the adults. Try Greek burgers stuffed with feta cheese, roasted red pepper, and spinach. THE ENTHUSIAST – If he insists on being called Tex, Tiny, Tubby or just “dad” when he’s tending the barbecue for hours on end, consider a pair of heavy stainless steel pork claws. Broil King’s experts claim they make shredding pork a walk in the park. THE ENTERTAINER – Items designed for both cooking prep and presentation are great gifts for an outdoor entertainer. A jalapeno pepper rack adds grill appeal to this popular appetizer and a pizza stone helps backyard chefs prepare and serve an authentic pizza pie. For the dad who has it all, explore the wide range of rubs, marinades and wood chips available to provide hours of flavour experimenting. Additional gift grilling ideas are available online at broilkingbbq.com. Tips courtesy www.newscanada.com.

A

s owners of Örling and Wu, a home decor store in Gastown, we spend our days searching for just the right statements and accents for home and garden. Here is our take on your great outdoors: A patio can be more than a place for table and chairs. It’s a place where you share those fantastic long summer afternoons and nights with good company. That being said, perfect lighting can be the key to making the good times that much more enjoyable. Lighting is one of the most effective methods to add atmosphere to an outdoor space. Try these illuminating ideas to create a welcoming ambiance for your backyard. The chandelier isn’t just for indoors anymore! If you have the budget and space, this decorative lighting fixture not only adds unexpected character to a pavilion, but also instantly transforms the space into an outdoor living room. Opting for candle shades over the lights prevents glare, so during nighttime the fixture casts a warm glow over dinners and after-dinner drinks. For a covered outdoor space, be sure to look for fixtures that are rated for use in damp areas.

If you’re among the group that enjoys cooking outdoors after sunset, including task lighting is a must for convenience and safety. Wall sconces can focus light on the work surfaces with a soft diffused glow that adds layering to the overall ambience lighting, while helping you see as you cook.

Expand Your Living Space

And of course, don’t forget about the candles! They offer the simplest and often the cheapest way to bring mood lighting to outdoor spaces. Just remember to use hurricane candleholders to protect the flames from the breeze.

Overhead Awnings

A little tip to remember as you’re shopping for outdoor lighting is to choose fixtures with the same finish as the door handles, fencing and outdoor furniture. It will certainly give your outdoor living room a professional and pulled-together look!

Green gardening, naturally

G

rowing your own food helps reduce the greenhouse gas emissions produced by transporting fruits and vegetables over long distances. And according to the City of Vancouver’s comprehensive home and garden section on its website, you can help the environment even more, by growing your food without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. By growing fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers without harmful chemicals, you help reduce the amount of toxins in our soil and water, and produce safe, healthy food for you and your family. And why not take it a step further? Use rain barrels and other outdoor water saving techniques, and you can save water, too. In Vancouver, you cannot use pesticides for cosmetic (visual) applications. Pesticides can only be used on lawns and gardens to control an infestation, or to destroy a health hazard.

But this doesn’t mean taking care of your yard has to be complicated. When you use natural gardening techniques, you cut time wasted on raking and bagging leaves. You’ll also save money on water, waste disposal, and chemicals.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR YARD DRUG-FREE Step 1: Choose wisely Pick pest-resistant plants for your lawn and garden. Replace problem plants with

heartier plants, and clean up diseased or dead plants to prevent pests from breeding. Step 2: Build healthy soil Get a composter, and use compost when creating new garden beds, or planting a new lawn. Spread compost around plants in spring and fall. Step 3: Fertilize moderately Use organic fertilizers made from manure or composted sewer sludge. Fertilize twice a year maximum, in mid to late May and early September. Step 4: Be water wise Collect rainwater using a rain barrel. Water your lawn with 25 mm (1 in) of water for about an hour once a week in warm weather, in the morning to reduce evaporation. Step 5: Mow and go Let your lawn reach 6 cm (nearly 2.5 in) high before mowing. Longer grass protects your lawn from heat, and helps grass grow deeper roots and hold more moisture.

VANCOUVER’S GREEN BIN PROGRAM IS COMING TO YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD Starting this spring, houses and duplexes will have their Green Bin emptied every week and their garbage bin every other week. All food scraps, plate scrapings and yard trimmings can now go in your Green Bin. Recycling our food scraps reduces the volume of garbage we produce, cuts down on global warming pollution and creates a useful composted soil product for local gardens and farms. We’re making this change now to prepare for the ban on disposal of all food scraps and yard trimmings, which comes into effect across Metro Vancouver in 2015.

DEVELOPING STORY

E

with Naoibh O’Connor

arlier this week, Vancouver city council endorsed staff recommendations outlined in an interim report on the controversial Oakridge development, including tower heights of up to 45 storeys, paving the way for more consultation leading up to a public hearing, which could take place in December at the earliest. Henriquez Partners Architects and Stantec applied to amend the site’s zoning on behalf of Oakridge Centre owner Ivanhoe Cambridge and Westbank Development last November. The application proposes 13 towers ranging from 18 to 45 storeys with about 2,800 residential units, as well as rooftop greenspace, retail space and amenities such as a community centre. “Council has endorsed the maximum height. They haven’t endorsed the number of towers and they’ve given a general endorsement to the general level of density proposed, but there are a lot of issues that need to be worked around the form of development and the location of towers and transitions to existing residential properties,” explained Matt Shillito, the city’s assistant director of community planning. “There’s also a lot of further working out to be done on the public benefits strategy — the rooftop park space, the civic centre, the affordable housing component and so on.”

We say the “ vision is scary

regarding livability and our tax bills.

—Tracey Moir Shillito said details within the rezoning application could change based on that technical work, further “enhanced” public consultation council called for, or following the public hearing. “So at any time the application could be amended either by the proponent themselves or in discussions with staff or indeed by council at the public hearing, so there’s more work to do,” he said. Tower locations, for example, could be moved although there are some areas where there’s more flexibility than others. Some speakers at the council meeting questioned the accuracy of the project’s model, but city staff confirmed it’s accurate and to scale. Others raised concerns that the model and renderings don’t give the public a good idea about how the development will appear to people walking on the street. “We’ve asked the applicant to provide some street-level perspective views of the project, so they’re doing that and we’ll be able to bring those forward for the public to look at,” Shillito said. The second consultation phase will likely include more open houses, meetings with interested parties, an

online component, and kiosks set up in Oakridge Centre, possibly every other Saturday to provide information about the rezoning application and to collect feedback. Details are being worked out, but the city hopes to organize some consultation for late June or early July and again in the fall, with the potential for a public hearing in December. “That’s still our target, but we’ll have to see whether that’s achievable or not,” Shillito said. Proponents consider the Oakridge site ideal for densification and sustainable development, but critics like Tracey Moir, of the group Oakridge Langara Area Residents, said council’s endorsement of “the key and most controversial aspects is alarming.” “We believe putting the cart before the horse is prejudicial to the rezoning and public hearing processes. We encourage voters to ask themselves if the processes will be fair or are the outcomes already pre-determined,” she said in an email. Moir maintains community opposition to this size of redevelopment isn’t being respected, nor is the current Oakridge policy statement, which limits towers to 24 storeys. She said the vision for the whole Cambie corridor will add tens of thousands of new people living and working in the area, which will create more traffic and demands on the Canada Line, and that it will require increases to city infrastructure and additional education, medical and emergency services. “And how will all of this be paid for? We say the vision is scary regarding livability and our tax bills,” she wrote. noconnor@vancourier.com twitter.com/naoibh

hen members of the WISE Hall heard their homeaway-from-home faced noise complaints and a possible demise, they didn’t sit idly by. They started a petition to demonstrate support for the East Side social club and arts venue, noting that a loss of its liquor licence — as a result of complaints — would be catastrophic for the 50-yearold establishment that’s run by the nonprofit WISE Social and Athletic Club. The WISE and its supporters are now working to ensure interior sound won’t annoy neighbours in the future. They’ve launched a Keep the WISE Alive crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise $10,000 in 60 days to improve soundproofing in its 1926 building on Adanac Street at Victoria Drive. “We have ever-shrinking spaces for public performance, particularly live music,” said Erin Frizzell, general manager of the WISE. “We wanted to go above and beyond the call of duty to try to be the best neighbours that we could be to make this a really thriving and sustainable venue for in the future.” The WISE received $71,000 in matching funds from the city in 2012 for upgrades, but noise wasn’t an issue at that time and soundproofing wasn’t included. But multiple complaints to the WISE, the city and the liquor board since January, mainly about people making noise and smoking outside, have changed all that.

WISE Hall supporters are raising money to improve the soundproofing of the circa-1926 structure.

The WISE has asked its members to keep their voices down when outside the venue, hired additional weekend security at a cost of $800 a month, established a dedicated smoking area and posted more signs informing patrons of noise and smoking regulations. “We really want to be, as we have been for the last 50 years, a part of the community, and considering that we’re in a residential neighbourhood, then we want to be able to do that in harmony,” Frizzell said. The WISE Social and Athletic Club was created in 1958 as a members’ club for expatriates from Wales, Ireland, Scotland and England. It incorporated as a non-profit society in 1961 and purchased its home on Adanac in

1963. The WISE has hosted weddings, fundraisers, theatre and concerts by musical acts that include SNFU, Sal Ferreras and Neko Case. Photographer and author Adam PW Smith has produced a video in support of the WISE that includes writer and artist Michael Turner, musicians Ford Pier, Rich Hope and Veda Hille. Those who donate $10 on Indigogo will receive Keep the WISE Alive buttons and patches; $25 gets you a reusable tote bag; $50 secures you a patch, tote bag and a ticket for any Live at the WISE concert in 2013 and $100 gets you three pairs of tickets. A donation of $1,150 covers the cost of a hall rental and a donation of $500, $1,000 or $2,000 would get your name engraved on a plaque in the venerated venue. Soundproofing has been slated in stages and if the goal of $10,000 isn’t met, baffles will be installed Shawn Cole, director of education at Nimbus School of Recording Arts and co-owner of Fader Mountain Sound Studio, is providing consulting services on soundproofing and acoustics. The Odds will headline a live music benefit at the WISE Aug. 9, when the society plans to celebrate all of its upgrades and its designation by the Vancouver Heritage Foundation and Vancouver 125 as one of the city’s 125 Places That Matter. crossi@vancourier.com twitter.com/Cheryl_Rossi

any doctors’ offices have a litany of posters lining their reception and examining rooms — so many in fact that the average reader would have difficulty discerning what is most important. For this reason, I prefer to keep my posters to the essential. For the past 10 years, each of my examination rooms has a single poster highlighting alarm symptoms. It summarizes the symptoms that might indicate a serious medical condition requiring immediate attention. All family doctors have had patients who — after presenting a long list of problems that we do our best to address completely — add on an alarm symptom just as they are leaving. “By the way, doctor, I’ve been getting this chest pain every time I exercise ...” This is when the doctor’s heart rate goes up, perhaps along with blood pressure, but I can’t be sure of the latter because I’ve never checked my own pressure when I’m trying to help a patient. The above example suggests angina — chest pain or pressure (that may also be experienced in the throat or either arm) provoked by exercise or anxiety and relieved by rest. It could be a sign of ischemic heart disease — where a major artery supplying cardiac muscle is critically narrowed. Obviously, serious symptoms must be dealt with right away. The doctor will need to take a detailed history, complete a careful examination and propose investigations and treatment. Here is my list of alarm symptoms. • Pain: pain that is unexplained, severe, colicky, electrical or persistent; chest pain, especially if it is squeezing or associated with sweating, nausea or radiation into the neck or arm; bone pain, especially if it is unremitting and disturbs sleep. • Loss of function: unexplained changes in speech, memory, emotions, swallowing, bowel movements, urination, heart rhythm, vision, hearing, balance, coordination, sensation or muscle function. • Constitutional: unexplained sudden or progressive changes in weight, body temperature, energy, appetite, thirst, leg swelling and exercise tolerance. •Growth: new or growing lumps felt in

the skin, mouth, muscle, breast or scrotum; lymph nodes felt around the neck and under the arms; skin changes, including ugly moles, persistent scabs or sores. • Bleeding: in urine, sputum, stools (which can appear tarry black with bleeding peptic ulcers) or vomit. Nosebleeds that are recurrent or prolonged require medical attention. Many may think that it’s common sense to seek immediate medical attention with these symptoms. One of my patients failed to report blood in his urine for over one year. By then, he presented with the behavioural symptoms of cancer that had metastasized from his bladder to his brain. More recently, an elderly patient reported a 50-pound weight loss and progressive difficulty swallowing. Although they began five months earlier, he did not report these symptoms of stomach cancer until now. Health literacy varies widely in our diverse society. We each have different personal alarm settings. Intelligent people may ignore worrisome symptoms because of their fears.

If you are having “ symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, don’t wait for a doctor’s appointment.

My intention is not to raise anxiety. Much of the time, the above alarm symptoms have innocent causes. However, they may also be harbingers of serious conditions, including heart attacks, strokes and cancer. They therefore require timely medical attention. The poster in my office requests my patients to bring these symptoms to my attention at the beginning of a visit. An alarm symptom may require extra time to evaluate and we may need to postpone dealing with less serious problems. If you are having symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, don’t wait for a doctor’s appointment . . . or even a taxi. Call 911 as soon as possible.

travel High-altitude vineyard is breathtaking UCO VALLEY, Argentina — At first glance, you might think an alien spaceship had landed among the vines that sprawl at the foot of the Andes Mountains. Then again, when it comes to combining high-tech innovation with producing great wine, the Bodega y Viñedos O. Fournier really is out of this world. Or maybe it just seems that way because it’s such an adventure just getting here. O. Fournier is in Argentina’s Uco Valley, about a 90-minute drive southwest from Mendoza, the capital city of Argentina’s top wine region. You get here along a winding highway dotted, somewhat alarmingly, with roadside shrines to Cowboy Gil, the local patron saint of reckless drivers. The Uco Valley is home to some of the world’s highest-altitude vineyards, planted from 900 to 1,200 metres above sea level. The air is headily thin and dry, the sunshine intense (over 250 sunny days annually) and the temperature swings severe, which just happen to be perfect conditions for producing spectacular wines. Indeed, the Uco Valley is rapidly becoming one of the world’s most exciting wine regions to visit, especially if you venture to O. Fournier. The winery is owned by Spain’s O. Fournier Group, which produces wine in

Argentina’s high-altitude O. Fournier winery accentuates its dramatic setting with inspired architecture and award-winning wines. Spain, Portugal, Chile and Argentina. The building is the vision of Bormida & Yanzón, an Argentine firm that has developed an international reputation for dramatic — and highly functional — winery design. Together, they have combined the latest technology with architecture that’s both thoughtful

and beautiful to produce exceptional, terroir-driven vintages while making as little impact on the environment at possible. The first thing visitors see as they arrive is the giant, flat umbrella roof that controls temperature while evoking the condor, Mendoza’s symbolic bird, taking flight.

Then, as they approach the building, they wander through a half-hectare of rosemary bushes planted atop the 2,800-barrel cellar to help moderate the humidity below, just one of the winery’s many clever eco-friendly features. Once visitors pass through the imposing doorway they’ll discover a high-tech laboratory, elegant tasting rooms, a subtle use of local materials, priceless artworks and the sumptuous glass cube that houses the highly regarded Urban restaurant. By the time they’ve emerged in the “wine cathedral,” the imposing barrel room lit by natural light filtered through a central pillar, they’re ready to worship at the altar of wine. And they haven’t even had a drop to taste yet, which means the best is still to come. Since its founding in 2000, O. Fournier has won numerous awards for its deep, intense and sophisticated wines, especially its ultra-premium Alfa Crux and B Crux lines. Most are blends, often built around the spicy, deep-purple syrah grape as well as the popular malbec. It’s impossible to taste them all in one go, so the thirsty visitor might want to consider booking a stay in one of the winery’s seven well-appointed cottages. Sure, the Uco Valley is a long way to go for a glass of wine, but when the wine is this good and the setting this striking, it is a journey that is worth the effort.

NO ORDINARY JOE: At 88 years old, Vancouver businessman Joe Segal shows no signs of slowing down. The philanthropist and community leader was feted at a Vancouver Board of Trade gala chaired by his son Lorne. More than 1,500 guests filed into the Convention Centre, for the Joe Segal, An Extraordinary Life tribute. Titans of business including Peter Legge and David McLean sang his praises, in addition to surprise guest Paul Anka who serenaded Segal and his wife, Rosalie, to cap off the memorable evening. The dinner raised $2.1 million for Coast Mental Health. KIDS THE BIG WINNER: B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation raised $18.4 million during the 26th annual Miracle Weekend hosted by Global BC TV. The 11-hour province-wide telecast set a new record. Since its inception in 1988, Miracle Weekend events have raised more than $206 million for the hospital. Contributing to the massive haul, the 28th annual ChildRun on the same weekend brought in $1.05 million. ART FOR KIDS: The Gordon and Marion Smith Foundation was established in 2002 to support art education in B.C. and its acclaimed Artists for Kids program and the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art. To ensure its continued success, several hundred guests attended the 10th Smith Foundation Luncheon at the Capilano Golf and Country Club. Art by Smith, Attila Lukacs and other B.C. artists went up for auction. Nearly $175,000 was generated thanks to a Macquarie Foundation match.

B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO Teri Nicholas and Casey Wright, long-time BCCH patient, were all smiles after $18.4 million was raised for B.C. kids recently.

Canadian Cancer Society CEO Barbara Kaminsky feted researchers at a lunch aboard Raymond van Hoorn’s Holland America MS Volendam.

he first thing that struck me about Burdock and Co. (2702 Main St., 604-8790077) is that it feels as if it’s been there for years. In fact, barely a couple of months have passed since chef Andrea Carlson pulled the wraps off her Main Street room. Carlsonandherarchitectpartner,Kevin Bismanis, took over the space vacated by Cafeteria. While the previous incarnation was deliberately industrial, the feel now is more recycled country meets urban funk. Almost everything and anything is repurposed, from weathered barn boards to the salvaged white slat ceiling. It’s a comfortable space with an open kitchen and front-line bar seating, as well as a communal table that fills quickly. Then there’s the menu. Just when you thought it might be twilight time for everything Pacific Northwest this or locally sourced that, along comes Carlson to shake up our assumptions that we’ve seen it all when it comes to regional cuisine. The chef, who cut her seasonal regional teeth on Raincity Grill’s 100- Mile menu and further honed her organic sourcing skills at Bishop’s, has dug deep to come up with ingredients for dishes that are novel in a widening sea of predictability. The emphasis is on organic, with a broad choice of vegetarian and vegan offerings on this list (as well as carnivorous indulgence) that will constantly evolve based on what’s available. It all makes for a smart combination

Burdock and Co.’s summery Saison cocktail and Urban Digs egg are a few highlights of the inventive menu. of choices and suggests you don’t necessarily have to pursue a strictly vegetarian menu. In fact, offering a broader appeal just makes more sense, particularly if the foundation is as solid as here. Some of the tastes that wowed us? For one, the contrasting textures and vibrant colours of cherry leaf cured scallops with rice crackers and cracked cherry pit ice. We could also become a committed fan of the organic Metro Vancouver farmed “Urban Digs egg,” which comes soft poached and served with shaved asparagus and arugula salad, potato and light vinaigrette. Another keeper that will have us heading back is the house-made heritage pork and burdock sausage, deliciously served with wild dandelion and potato salad. Carlson’s inventiveness and willingness to forage beyond the norm are unfettered and she’s not scared to take risks — as in fire roasted green farro (wheat berry), an intriguing riff on risotto with spruce tips and black garlic. That determined mantra of originality extends to an inventive and locally foraged cocktail menu, courtesy of Kale & Nori’s Lauren Mote. Try the summery

whiskey Saison, ginger beer with burdock root and sour and various bitters and you’ll be challenged to resist another. Also of note, the city’s (so far) best offering of natural wines that includes the vibrant, apple-toned (Hungarian) Chateau Megyer Dry Furmint, and aromatic and stone fruit Elbin Fuchs Riesling (Alsace). Plates are smaller to mid-sized but prices are moderate (most $14 to $20), with some superb desserts (all $8) such as the wicked salted caramel apple pot pie. ••• Sipping around the newbies at this year’s Vancouver Craft Beer Week kickoff, we didn’t yet know that Powell Street Brewing’s Old Jalopy Pale Ale had scooped the Canadian Brewing Awards’ Beer of the Year. But it was easy to see why this perfectly balanced, not too hoppy and not too alcoholic but with a still decent kick brew scooped the field. A foray next day found us lined up with a score of others for more of the same (in growlers and bottles) as well as smooth chocolate-toned Dive Bomb Porter and well-named Hopdemonium IPA. Open Wednesday to Saturday, 1 to 7 p.m., 1830 Powell St., 604-558-2537.

uardian theatre critic Clare Brennan wrote on Sept. 17, 2011: “The writer Blake Morrison first described this notion as ‘bonkers’ when Susannah Clapp, this paper’s senior theatre critic, suggested it to him 10 years ago.” This “notion” was to explore the lives of the Bronte sisters through the text of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters. Nine years later, Barrie Rutter, the artistic director of Northern Broadsides in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England, decided it would be perfect for Morrison’s sixth collaboration with Broadsides. But it does feel bonkers hearing Anne (Victoria Lyons) spouting almost the same words as Chekhov’s Irena: “Yes, we must just go on working... I’ll go on working and working.” Or Lydia Robinson (Helen Martin) in We Are Three Sisters, complaining about Tabby (Emma Middleton), the Bronte’s maid, in almost exactly the same derisive terms as Natasha complains of Anfisa. There’s a drunken doctor in both as well as a ne’er do well brother in love with a coarse, domineering woman: Natasha (vulgar but, at least, single) and Lydia (vulgar and very much already married). And obviously, Chekhov’s sisters’ fervent wish to get to Moscow becomes Morrison’s sisters’ desire to get to London. For those up on their Chekhov, it’s easy to get into the head game of “Spot the Chekhov.” And that’s not a good thing; if you’re playing that game, you’re not fully engaged. Nevertheless, We Are Three Sisters is an entertaining exploration of the lives of Anne, Charlotte and Emily Bronte and their brother Branwell. It’s far from gloomy and suggests that, for their time, they were strong-willed, strongminded and talented women in a period when to be a woman writer was, as their patronizing father (Sean Allan) declared, never to be published. “Books cannot be the business of a woman’s life,” he pontificated.

# 260 - 2083 Alma Street Vancouver, BC (Cor ner of 4th & Alma)

MariaLuisa Alvarez, Olesia Shewchuk and Victoria Lyons star in United Players’s production of We Are Three Sisters. In the play, it’s Anne’s 25th birthday; Charlotte is not yet 30; Emily is about 28. And while they write about love, what do they know of love? (At this point, Kate and Anna McGarrigle’s song, “Love Over and Over” with its reference to “Emily, Anne and Charlotte” and “What did they know/ What could anyone know/ About Love” rang in my head.) Carolyn Rapanos’ set is simply stated elegance, beautifully lit by Graham Ockley. Neil Griffiths’ sound design is an unobtrusive and lovely score for piano. On opening night, United Players artistic director Andree Karas made a point of reminding us that everyone involved in the production is a volunteer and all but the director, Sandra Ferens, and two of the actors, Douglas Abel and Allan, are non-professionals. The quality of many of performances is far from amateur, however. LikeChekhov’sThreeSisters, it’s an ensemble piece but, as with the brilliant Russian play, one sister stands out. Here it is Charlotte who is effectively foregrounded by Olesia

Shewchuk who conveys all of Charlotte’s wit and fire. MariaLuisa Alvarez is Emily, the most withdrawn and secretive of the sisters while Victoria Lyons is a shy, blushing Anne, relentlessly pursued by the old doctor (Abel) as well as the flirtatious young curate (Nick Preston). Helen Martin, in a green, offthe-shoulder gown (by costumer Elliott Squires), is the nasty Mrs. Robinson. Jordon Navaratil, as heavy-drinking Branwell, comes on strong in Act 2. The frequent echoes of Chekhov are weird but I was otherwise drawn in and the production is excellent. As for whether Chekhov drew inspiration from Mrs. Elizabeth Gaskell’s 1857 biography of Charlotte Bronte (commissioned by Charlotte’s father), a Yorkshire theatre company might love to think so. It makes a good story: Charlotte, Emily and Anne as Chekhov’s Three Sisters. We know Chekhov read Cervantes and Schopenhauer. But Gaskell? —reviewed by Jo Ledingham For more reviews, go to joledingham.ca all proceeds benefiting

SPORT SHORTS STRATHCONA MEN’S TEAM WINS CONTINENTAL BASKETBALL TITLE

A Strathcona men’s basketball team, stacked with graduates of Tupper and Kitsilano secondary schools, won the men’s open at the North American Chinese Basketball championship in Minneapolis, MN last month. Jack Ho, a 2004 Tupper alum, and James Lum, the Tigers’ all-time leading scorer and 2010 graduate, joined the East Vancouver Strathcona team along with Kitsilano standout and UBC Thunderbird Tommy Nixon to defeated New York City’s United East by three points to win the championship title.

TWO AWARDED TREVOR LINDEN SCHOLARSHIP

Vancouver students Parys Liu and Nathalie Mila were awarded the Trevor Linden Community Spirit Scholarship, a $2,500 educational bursary, in recognition of their exceptional community leadership. Liu, a graduate of David Thompson secondary, co-founded K.A.R.E. (Kids Actions Really Energize) Power when she was 11 and has launched numerous campaigns, including projects to fight bullying and homelessness. She also worked to create opportunities for kids to become more active. According to the Canucks, which supports the scholarship named after its most cherished former captain, Liu also maintained honour roll while captaining multiple volleyball teams. She plans to pursue physiotherapy at UBC. Mila graduates from Britannia secondary as an accomplished pianist. She volunteers as a youth mentor at the Saint James Music Academy — a community program that offers free classical music instruction to children and youth at risk. In support of low-income families, she organizes summer day camps and a girls night program at the Union Gospel Mission. She is considering a career in midwifery. Since the community spirit scholarship launched in 2008, 20 students have received $50,000 for their post-secondary education. Past Vancouver winners include Magee graduate Miranda Wang, Leanne Huang of Windermere and Lord Byng alum Lauren Lam.

VANCOUVER CANADIANS FIRST HOME STANDS BEGINS JUNE 17 AGAINST SPOKANE MEGAN STEWART Staff writer

T

he Vancouver Canadians start their 2013 summer baseball season on the road today against the Tri-City Dust Devils in southeastern Washington. The two-time defending Northwest League champion C’s open their campaign at Gesa Stadium in Pasco, Wash., but before leaving town, players talked about Nat Bailey Stadium and Vancouver fans like they’ve hit the jackpot. “It’s going to be unbelievable,” lefthanded pitcher Bobby Brosnahan told reporters Wednesday. “It’s a great atmosphere here. You can go to higher levels and still not get as many fans as this. It’s a pretty special experience.” As the first Ontario collegiate player ever drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays, University of Guelph alum Shaun Valeriote grew up idolizing Joe Carter. The infielder is one of three Canadians on the team and is in Vancouver for the first time. “I know that the crowd is great. There is a lot of energy and it speaks to how baseball is growing in Canada,” he said. Valeriote joins Eric Brown, a right-handed pitcher from Ontario drafted from the

UBC Thunderbirds, who will get the start when the Canadians open at home June 17 against Spokane. No one travels a shorter distance than Justin Atkinson, the C’s third homegrown prospect, who played for another Canadian team — the national one — when he represented the country and Whalley at the Little League World Series. He was drafted in the 26th round two years ago and comes to Vancouver from the Bluefield Blue Jays of the Appalachian league. The 25-man roster will fluctuate as Jays’ prospects are called up and moved around the club’s different development teams, but returning players come to Vancouver already familiar with their surroundings. Brosnahan, a six-foot, 24-year-old from Michigan, returns to Vancouver for his second single-A short season with the Canadians and will get the start Friday against Tri-City. In the long offseason, the pitcher said he added a cutter (a type of fastball) to his repertoire. New additions like Valeriote have learned something more than the reputation of Nat Bailey fans from returning players such as Brosnahan. “I’ve heard a lot from the boys. I’ve hear it’s a blast,” said Valeriote. “I’m jealous, too — some of them are walking around

with rings and that’s what I want to do this year: get a ring.” “It’s in the back of our minds,” said Brosnahan. “It’s always our goal coming here. I definitely think we can do it.” Since March, the C’s second-year manager Clayton McCullough was in Toronto assisting the Blue Jays and, among other things, catching in the bullpen. The spectre of a threepeat motivates excellence, he said, but the development and advancement of young players is his ultimate goal. “Any time you put kids in a winning type environment,theyenjoycomingtotheball park more, they’re playing for something more than just working on their own stats and how they’re doing,” said McCullough, named the Northwest League manager of the year in 2012. Players are right to care about the numbers they put up, he said, and being a good teammate is part of the equation. “They want to get to the big leagues one day and a lot of it is putting up numbers and stats, but when you’re on a winning team… guys understand being unselfish at times is a good thing to help the club win and ultimately that ends up boding well for your own future.” mstewart@vancourier.com twitter.com/MHStewart

he day Asianna Covington broke a 42-year-old B.C. high school record in discus, she wasn’t thinking too much about distance or dates. To her benefit, she wasn’t over-thinking the discus either. “It’s not just physical,” said the thrower. “Personally, I like to be calm and relaxed and treat it just like it’s practice.” When she rewrote the provincial history books, her surprise was genuine. The throw of 48.20 metres wasn’t even a personal best. “There was another record that she was aiming for, which was the hammer throw,” said her coach Richard Collier. That record was hers to win, he said. She’d repeatedly surpassed it in practice at Richmond’s Clement Track where the Little Flower Academy honour role student trains with the Kajaks. “The record is going to fall,” said Collier. “But what was happening was she was thinking so hard to break it. I was telling her to relax. Then in discus, I guess she took my advice. I knew she could win it.” Covington, 17, already held the Canadian youth record in discus and three-kilogram hammer throw, two accomplishments that suggest her potential, which drew recruiters from roughly 50 North American university track and field programs. She committed to the University of

Georgia and will face the high expectations and standards of Don Babbitt, a veteran Olympic throwing coach. Hard work will compliment her natural talent and muscular, sixfoot-one frame. “It’s going to take lots of dedication and perseverance and the right attitude,” said Covington, who holds dual U.S. and Canadian citizenship but has already worn the Maple Leaf at international events like the World Junior Championships in Barcelona and the Commonwealth Youth Games on the Isle of Man where she carried the flag. Covington, whose father Grover is a CFL Hall of Fame defensive end and her brother Christian a defensive tackle at Rice University, said she’d be honoured to attend the Olympics for any country but is loyal to Canada. And, as a Christian, she admires a Japanese hammer thrower who brings a calm spirituality to the sport. “When I’m competing, I ask God to help me and I’ll thank him for that drive I have.” Making the most of her athleticism is an act of devotion, she said. Alone in the circle before a throw, Covington clears her mind. “I can just rely on myself,” she said. “It’s not just physical. It’s all in your head.” ● m ofqgn kjfhglj

These days it seems there’s almost nothing you can’t fund via crowd sourcing, from the world’s firstglow-in-the-darkplantstoZachBraff’slatest movie. (Why exactly a millionaire needs crowd funding from folks like you and me is somewhat baffling, but that’s part of the platform’s appeal — it’s open to anyone.) For those who aren’t familiar with the concept, sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo offer the opportunity to invest in concept projects and provide the individuals or companies behind them with the funding they need to make their vision a reality. Investors are offered incentives that increase in value according to their contribution. Projects that don’t meet their funding goal usually return contributions to investors. For cyclists interested in bike-based innovation, there are some fantastic projects attempting to get off the ground. As both a cyclist and tech geek, I’m particularly enthused about the Helios smart handlebars.

on how close to the bike you are; turn signals to improve visibility and communication in traffic; and turn-by-turn navigation. There’s also a GPS tracking system built into the handlebars that allows you to track the bike’s coordinates. Unfortunately this will initially only be available in the U.S., but as a victim of multiple bike thefts over the years I love the idea of a tracking system that can’t be removed from the bars. For those who have wrestled with fender installation, you’ll be pleased to hear that simple, detachable fender options are popular projects, with options like the Musguard removable fender and the Plume recoiling guard available for investment. Lighting is another popular choice, with some really innovative takes on traditional bike lighting. I especially like Revolights, who turned to Kickstarter for their start-up funding and just ran a successful campaign to produce wheels with fully integrated lighting. For triathletes, the Switch Aero System offers the option to quickly and easily convert your road bike from a regular road riding position to a true aero position. This is a great option for those of us who live in condos with limited space for bike storage. I love that crowd-funding allows inventors and entrepreneurs to develop innovations that permeate every aspect of the cycling experience.

good realtor would never recommend to their client that they do not carry out an inspection on a property they’re going to buy, even a brand new one. The stakes are just too high for the alternative of paying a property inspector anywhere from $250 to $1,000 to tell you what’s wrong (and right) with your potential new home or commercial property. And even on new properties, an inspector can point out deficiencies and warranty work that should be carried out for you (at no cost to you) by the developer. So who should you hire to handle your inspection? There are dozens of good property inspectors out there but you should definitely stick with those who have an RHI after their name. It means that they are a

registered home inspector and have completed the necessary provincially mandated training to competently handle your inspection for you. They should preferably also be a member of the Canadian Association of Home Inspectors. Once you’ve decided to inspect, have arranged your inspection appointment with the seller and have your inspector onsite and ready to go, what exactly should he or she do? Most good inspectors will check every electrical outlet in the property to make sure they work: the fuse box/breaker panel (making sure in older homes that it has adequate capacity) and all fire/smoke detectors. In older residential property, checks should also be made for knob-and-tube wiring and an underground oil tank. Knoband-tube wiring (and/or 60A electrical service) should be replaced. Oil tanks can be easy and inexpensive or very difficult and very expensive to remove and remediate. In an older residential home, always check for an oil tank and get the right people to deal with it. Now that we have covered most of the ob-

vious items that need to be part of a property inspection, there are certain things that need to be highlighted given the fact that B.C. happens to receive a lot of “liquid sunshine.” In the Vancouver area, by far the main things that need to be inspected and cleared are the roof, the building envelope and any internal moisture that may exist in a property. In our part of the world, moisture ingress is the single biggest issue building structures face. An inspector should check the roof carefully to see that it’s in decent condition and determine as best they can if any moisture is invading the interior. That includes checking flashing, gutters, eaves troughs and drains (especially on flat roofs). The other thing to check carefully is the building envelope. What type of siding was installed and when? Stucco can be a problem because it does not allow the envelope to breathe. Is it rainscreened? This relatively new technology separates the outer shell from an inner moisture-proof barrier that allows water that gets in to exit via a flashing installed at periodic vertical intervals, such as at each floor of an apartment build-

ing. In B.C., water will always get in. It’s allowing it to get out that’s the crucial thing. With rainscreen, once the rain subsides, the water will drain out, allowing the envelope to breathe and dry out. The last moisture issue, and possibly the most crucial, is mould. Once moisture sits for a period of time, mould will form, and not only will it rot materials such as wood and drywall, it will grow spores, give off toxic fumes and infect residents of the building (especially young children). Similarly, if water seeps in behind the tiles and grout of a shower stall, the same thing can happen. That’s why any good inspector will place his moisture meter up to and all around every shower stall in the building to make sure there isn’t any water standing behind the tiles. Moisture is the most important thing you need to look out for in B.C. properties and it’s insidious, expensive to deal with and ultimately a serious health risk if not dealt with.

TRAVELLING BY POLAR ROUTE A team of explorers recently celebrated travelling 4,000 kilometres from Russia to Canada via the North Pole. No big deal, you say? Air Canada was having a seat sale anyway? If so, somebody forgot to tell this intrepid gang of Russians, who drove the entire way in specially modified buses with massive tires. They did so over two months, at an average speed of 10 kilometres per hour (and you thought your commute was bad). Threading between icy outcrops, with the constant danger of falling through the shifting pack ice — it hardly sounds fun, does it? Still, part of exploring is proving something can be done, and the Russian team also had the opportunity to experience polar life in all of its frozen splendour. They ran across roving polar bears several times, saw the spectacular northern lights, and even bumped into a pack of walruses, about which everyone was very excited until they figured out it wasn’t actually that beret-wearing guy from MythBusters. The cars now sit in Resolute Bay, planning the return trip back across the Bering Strait. I suppose it beats flying coach.

ACURA TO BUILD NSX IN OHIO

I double-dog dare you to point out exactly where Marysville, Ohio is on an outline of the continental United States without any of the state lines drawn in. It’s sort of in the middle-ish bit. Or to the east? Well, geography was never my strong point. The point is, Honda’s recent announcement that they’re going to be building their world-beating, mid-engined supercar outside of Japan is a bit of a surprise. Of course, being that Honda already has two production facilities in Ohio, perhaps the news shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, the Accord Hybrid will be built just down the road, and the NSX will contain some of those same components. NSX production is slated to start sometime in 2015, which means we have approximately two more years of being shown “concept” cars at every single auto show between now and then.

CAR THIEF NABBED AT DRIVE-THROUGH There is almost nothing filled with the satisfying blend of justice served and schadenfreude that is a good dumbthief story. Having stolen a 1995 Toyota 4Runner from outside an apartment building, Katherine York immediately left town, right? Wrong. Being, “a few fries short of a Happy Meal,” York instead filled her ill-gotten SUV with stolen clothing and decided to pick up a snack at the local McDonald’s drive-through. This all happened in Kennewick, Wash., which has a population of only 77,000. Oh yeah, and the drivethrough in question is just five miles from where York swiped the 4Runner. And it happens to be where the workplace of one Virginia Maiden — the Toyota’s rightful owner. — Brendan McAleer

New Ford Explorer is a good Sport fers a more refined on-road ride without losing any of its off-road capabilities. For 2013, Ford brings a Sport model for the Explorer range to add some zest to the lineup. In keeping with Ford’s radical redesign philosophy, the Sport badge adds more than just cosmetic changes.

DAVID CHAO

I

DESIGN

n 2011, Ford introduced an all-new Explorer. This new SUV was truly all-new as it didn’t just feature new bodywork or an updated powertrain. Instead, Ford based the new vehicle on the Taurus’ unit body platform and created a much more sophisticated vehicle — something that was not possible with the predecessor with its design based on a body-on-frame platform. Now with a more rigid body, the squeaks and rattles commonly found in truck-based SUVs are gone. As a result, the Explorer of-

Bill Gubing, chief engineer for Ford’s Taurus and Police Interceptor line-up, is also the lead engineer for the Explorer line. This is fitting, since these entire vehicles share the same structure — lessons learned with one are easily shared with the group. When Ford released the redesigned Explorer, the choice of a 290-hp V6 or a fuel efficient turbocharged 2.0L I4 was sufficient for most of its current customers. However, thanks to the improved build and design quality they piqued the interest of buyers of more

The starting price for the new Explorer Sport is $47,299. prestigious brands such as Lexus and Land Rover. To please more of these customers, the Explorer Sport offers an upgraded interior and a higher level of performance; the exterior was also restyled to give this SUV a different flavour. Above the cool blackedout front grill, the Explorer shows off darkened headlight and taillight assemblies which compliment the exclusive glossy black

finishes. Rounding out the package are unique 20-inch wheels that scream “look at me.”

PERFORMANCE The 2013 Explorer Sport borrows the 3.5-litre, highoutput, twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 from the Taurus SHO sport sedan. This bumps horsepower to 365-hp and torque to 350 ft-lbs — not bad for a SUV. The issue that arose from

having 75 more horsepower over the base Explorer was how to adequately deliver that power to the road. To that end, the sport model is only available with Ford’s Terrain Management fourwheel drive system. As well, the system has been calibrated to optimize the use of power in all driving conditions. This intelligent system continuously monitors wheel slip and will dynamically shift power to the wheels that need it most. Using the console-mounted control knob, the driver can manually adjust the power and torque settings if they encounter deep snow, sand or mud. The overall feeling is that the Explorer Sport performs like a truly upscale SUV, with well-dampened suspension, surprisingly accurate steering feel, and more-than-adequate acceleration.

ENVIRONMENT With decent power and handling in place, the de-

signers could turn their attention to the cabin. The first thing that welcome new buyers are illuminated Explorer badges on the front scuff plates, something that is only seen in luxury brands. Once inside, the sculpted leather seats ensure a comfortable journey. The standard heated and cooled front buckets are available in a stylish two-tone colour scheme which is very appealing. The leather-wrapped steering wheel continues the premium feel, which also boasts a standard power tilt and telescoping. Shorter drivers will appreciate the adjustable pedals with memory feature. With the Explorer Sport, Ford designers were attempting to move the model more up-market. They successfully accomplished that. However, this shift is also reflected in the price as the Sport is almost $20,000 more than a base Explorer. david.chao@leansensei.com

Road rookies NEW DRIVER TUNE-UP TIPS KEEP DRIVERS SAFE Between summer jobs, spending time with friends and weekend road trips, this is a busy time of year for young drivers. And yet, did you know that young drivers are often driving the oldest cars?

According to a survey conducted by Leger Marketing, more than half of drivers between the ages of 18 and 34 drive cars over five years old – and many may not know what it takes to keep their car running safely. To help novice drivers keep cash in their pockets and their wheels on the road, here are a few simple tune-up tips from Krown Rust Control: • TOP UP YOUR FLUIDS: Many new drivers don’t know the importance of car maintenance. For example, neglecting to do an inexpensive oil change can result in a blown engine – which costs much more. Regularly checking levels of windshield washer fluid, engine oil, radiator coolant and brake fluid can save time and money.

Summer 2013

gauge against the valve and read the pressure and adjust as needed. • CHECK FOR SIGNS OF RUST: Looks matter. As the temperatures rise, so does the rate of corrosion and after a full season of battling snow and slush, the chemicals used to clear roads can eat away at a car’s body and turn it to rust. Professional rust protection once a year can do wonders for the way a car looks and runs. Learning to drive is a rite of passage but one that comes with a lot of responsibility. When young drivers know the basics it will keep their cars running smoother for longer. Info. courtesy newscanada.com.

• CHECK THE PRESSURE: Knowing how to change a tire is one thing, but learning how to check the pressure of a tire can avoid the need to change it. Tire pressure gauges are inexpensive and available at most gas stations. Remove the cap on the tire, press the pressure

Summer on the road

SCAN WITH FOR MORE EASY TIPS

HOT WEATHER THE TRUE CULPRIT BEHIND CAR-BATTERY TROUBLE Summer is the season for major car-battery problems. Heat, not cold, shortens battery life, according to Car Care Canada. Excessive heat and overcharging are the two main reasons for shortened battery life. Heat causes battery fluid to evaporate, damaging the internal structure of the battery. A malfunctioning component in the charging system, usually the voltage regulator, allows too high a charging rate. That’s slow death for a battery. True, there are more road service calls in cold weather for dead batteries that cause starting failure. That’s when a battery’s output is diminished because of sluggish electro-chemical action that gives the battery its power. Also, colder temperatures increase thickness of the engine oil, making the engine harder to turn over. These factors lead to harder starting. “An average of one out of four vehicles gets a new battery every

year,” says Marc Brazeau of Car Care Canada. “Sooner or later all batteries have to be replaced, but having to so prematurely can involve more than the cost of a road service call and a new battery, it can be inconvenient as well.” To get the most life out of a battery, Brazeau suggests the following: · Be sure the electrical system is charging at the correct rate; overcharging can damage a battery as quickly as undercharging. · If your battery is the type that needs to be topped off, check it regularly, especially in hot weather. Add distilled water when necessary. · Always replace a battery with one that’s rated at least as high as the one originally specified. · Keep the top of the battery clean. Dirt becomes a conductor, which drains battery power. Further, as corrosion accumulates on battery terminals it becomes an insulator, inhibiting current flow.

Tips on Preparing for Summer Car Care Canada offers additional tips to prepare for summer, to keep your vehicle dependable and safe, to protect the environment and to enhance and maintain your vehicle investment: 1. CONDUCT REGULAR MAINTENANCE – follow a scheduled maintenance plan to avoid troubles down the road. 2. REPLACE WORN PARTS, such as belts and hoses, before they break. It’s always easier to be prepared. 3. CHECK ALL THE FLUIDS (brake, coolant /anti-freeze, power steering, transmission, washer fluid) in your car, not just the oil and gas. 4. HAVE IT INSPECTED before a major road trip, and be sure to tell your technician your travel plans (in the mountains, towing a trailer, thousands of kilometres.) 5. CLEAN YOUR VEHICLE REGULARLY and tend to nicks and chips immediately, especially on the windshield.

Service Specialists! 10 Years /400,000 Km Warranty!

Pictured left: Show producers Phil Heard, left, and son Jason, are aficionados of the classics. Shown: two of their favourite rides. People often say to me, “why do you drive that thing, you must go through huge bucks in gas?” Sure, our 1970 Cougar convertible isn’t a Prius for fuel economy, but that car we bought five years ago is still worth at least the $10K we paid for it, if not more. Talk to me about your newer cars value now from five years ago! OK, I am not bashing new cars, rather I’m celebrating the classics. My dad and I share a small collection of cars that we drive here and there; we also started the new Vancouver Collector Car Show Sale and Auction, taking place at the PNE Fairgrounds June 22 and 23. It’s a celebration of all things classic car-related, and a heck of a good collector car auction. This should be a blast of a weekend! We have turned classic cars into our hobby, and a slight obsession. We Heards aren’t the most mechanically inclined people, but with old cars you don’t have to be, to tackle some projects yourself rather than taking it to the shop and paying shop hours.

Last summer, after a day of summer cruising, we smelled a horrible odour. We popped the hood and saw something leaking onto the exhaust pipe and smoking. We opened the shop manual and found out it was the fuel pump and it was leaking gas onto the hot exhaust. Obviously, we weren’t comfortable driving it to the mechanics. So to the internet, and we learn that it is likely just the gasket. So, off to the local auto shop, to buy one. Guess what? They don’t stock every part and seal for a 1962 Cadillac, who would have guessed? Apparently, you build your gasket, so we picked up every variation of gasket material and trace out the gasket, cut it out and put it back in. It still blows fuel. I take it apart, read directions again, seal gasket with a bit of oil. Retry, and Bob`s your uncle, we are cruising again! Now, we are tackling lots of fun problems; thankfully not on the Cadillac, which we are entering into our auction as a no-reserve vehicle. Maybe this beauty can be yours!

Have you ‘Heard’? Detailing tips for classic cars 1. CLAYBAR IS KING. It pulls the microscopic imperfections from your paint and leaves it smooth as glass, ready for wax and polish. 2. PICK UP A GOOD DETAIL SPRAY. Works like a dream at shows and you can use it on chrome and glass – Adam’s is the best I have found. 3. MICROFIBRE CLOTHS ALL THE WAY. When I switched from 100% cotton to microfibre it was a night and day difference. 4. OLD WIRE WHEELS ARE NOTORIOUS FOR RUST. Here is a weird one – pour some Coke (yes the drink) and rub tin foil over the rust spots and it pulls it right off.
