NPA councillor Elizabeth Ball will not seek re-election Ball’s decision leaves four incumbents to compete in Oct. 20 race Mike Howell

mhowell@vancourier.com

Time to get you caught up on the civic election campaign. First off, NPA Coun. Elizabeth Ball finally let us media types know whether she will seek another term at city hall. She’s not. I got her on the phone last Thursday and asked her why. “I think I’ve done enough. It’s time for somebody else to have a chance and contribute to this city,” said Ball, noting she served three terms on council. “The first term you’re learning, the second term you sort of got it going and the third term you can get done what you really wanted to do.” Ball was part of NPA mayor Sam Sullivan’s administration from 2005 to 2008, then lost her reelection bid in 2008. She ran successfully again in 2011 and was re-elected in 2014. She’s long been a

booster of the arts, seniors and children. An NPA news release that announced Ball’s departure said she was instrumental in establishing Vancouver’s 125 Celebration, the city’s first tourism strategy, the city’s first poet laureate program, the mayor’s film industry task force and bringing the Juno Awards to Vancouver. Asked what her legacy will be, Ball said she hoped it would be “a real understanding of the value of the arts to the city.” Also, she added, being able to talk about children and/ or seniors at “every single council meeting is something that has affected how people look at the city.” Ball’s departure from city hall, whether you agree with her politics or not, means another loss of a seasoned politician who knows how the place works. With Ball on her way out, that leaves only four incumbents on the

11-member council who are seeking re-election Oct. 20. That would be Melissa De Genova (NPA), Heather Deal (Vision Vancouver), Adriane Carr (Green Party) and Hector Bremner, who launched a new party called Yes Vancouver and plans to run for mayor. Since I last wrote in this space, more council wannabees have stepped for-

ward, including some new faces who joined Bremner’s party. They are Cobs bread franchise owner Brinder Bains, Happy Times Travel operator Glynnis Chan, entrepreneur Stephanie Ostler, music teacher Phyllis Tang and pharmacist Jaspreet Virdi. The NPA announced it is running nine candidates for council, including De

Genova, park board commissioner Sarah KirbyYung and school trustee Lisa Dominato. The others are business coach/consultant Rebecca Bligh, public affairs professional Justin P. Goodrich, natural gas supply management firm owner David Grewal, film industry veteran Colleen Hardwick, financial executive Kathy McGarrigle and paralegal Francisco (Jojo) Quimpo, who can be seen on YouTube belting out Journey’s “Don’t stop Believin’,” with Mayor Gregor Robertson on drums. I’m not kidding, check it out. Former NPA council candidate Robert McDowell announced he will run as an independent. Musqueam Indian Band member Wade Grant, who was previously interested in a run with the NPA and then Yes Vancouver, took to Twitter last week to say that he will not run with a party. Grant said he needed to

work “outside partisan lines.” “This was not an easy decision,” he wrote. “I am a proud Vancouverite and have spent many hours and days working to bring voices from different backgrounds together because I truly believe that our city is stronger when these voices are united.” Meanwhile, a political unknown name Steffan Ileman announced he has formed Restore Vancouver and plans to run for mayor. So to keep track, I think we now have Restore Vancouver, Yes Vancouver, Vision Vancouver and Pro Vancouver in this year’s race. Those wanting to form and run with Maybe Vancouver, Hell Yeah Vancouver! or Meh Vancouver should know the nomination period runs from Sept. 4 to Sept. 14. That’s when you can submit nomination forms to become an official candidate. There are 27 positions up for grabs. Good luck, everyone. @Howellings

Intersection of East First and Victoria to close for five days

PRESENTS

Courier staff

vancourier.com

The intersection at East First Avenue and Victoria Drive will be closed from Aug. 11 to Aug. 15 as part of FortisBC’s ongoing work to replace a gas line. The closure will include the blocks of Victoria Drive between Graveley and East Second. East First has been closed to traffic between Nanaimo Street and Clark Drive since July 3, although main arterials have been kept open. FortisBC says the latest closure will help workers meet the goal of re-opening East First from Nanaimo to Clark Drive to traffic by Aug. 31. Other major north-south routes such as Clark, Commercial, Nanaimo, Renfrew, Rupert and Boundary, will remain open. Cyclists and pedestrians will still be able to cross East First at Victoria Drive, as well as use the existing detours, which include Lakewood. Crews will be working

extended hours, including possible overnight work to make sure the intersection can be re-opened Aug. 16. FortisBC also has work planned on East First from Rupert to just west of Boundary Road, which will last until early September. Here’s what drivers need to know: • Eastbound traffic will be reduced to a single lane, with no westbound closures. • Drivers won’t be able to access the westbound Highway 1 on-ramp. Drivers can detour to the Hastings on-ramp via Boundary. • Drivers westbound on East First can continue

to access the westbound Highway 1 on-ramp as they would normally. Burnaby drivers should take note of partial lane closures on Lougheed Highway starting Aug. 9. This includes: • Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Delta Avenue and Madison Avenue. • Bicycle lanes on Lougheed Highway will be closed. The westbound cyclist detour will begin at Holdom Avenue, and the detour will begin at Gilmour Avenue.

There’s nothing like spending a few days in pristine wilderness to rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. We are blessed with acres of untouched rainforest in B.C., and experiencing the sights and sounds of the coast, including globally renowned Desolation Sound, is a rite of passage for British Columbians, and a must for international travellers. Pacific Coastal Cruises & Tours and Homfray Lodge offer an intimate experience which helps connect people to nature and the authentic B.C. coast. Equipped to navigate through hidden channels, the Pacific Bear, a refurbished fishing boat, offers you incomparable views of Desolation Sound, virtually unchanged from

its earliest discovery. Says Pacific Coastal Cruises & Tours founder George Bartel: “It’s a twist on traditional cruising … I’ve been in the travel business for almost 40 years, and I’m interested in reshaping how people experience this part of the world. It’s an experience that you are unable to find anywhere else.” Passengers of the Pacific Bear will have an allinclusive wilderness lodge experience which includes a stay at Homfray Lodge on the remote waters of Homfray Channel in Desolation Sound, as well as Grizzly Bears tours. Desolation Sound has the warmest waters of the B.C. coast with temperatures in the Sound often exceeding 22°C (75°F) from June to September. It is the seconddeepest sound in North America, reaching depths of 2,400 feet with peaks rising up to 8,000 feet from the water. With less than a knot of current, many global boaters and sea kayakers regard Desolation Sound as

a spectacular destination. This coastal haven of deep fjords and towering 7,000foot peaks, boasts spectacular waterfalls, glacier-fed rivers and magnificent Coastal Mountains in the backdrop. And the small size of the boat allows guests to get upclose-and-personal with the fjords. “On the boat, there’s a rooftop where you can have lunch. We stop at the waterfalls and get so close that we can feel the splash of the water on our cheeks,” says Sabrina Ouellette, reservations coordinator at Pacific Coastal Cruises & Tours, which runs the tours. Exclusive and personal, Pacific Coastal Cruises & Tours and stays at Homfray Lodge have tailored different kinds of journeys for you, where you can access the best places on the BC coast.

10th Avenue bike lane ‘ridiculous’: Young Mike Howell

mhowell@vancourier.com

Coalition Vancouver mayoral candidate Wai Young has promised to re-train 50 per cent of the city’s parking enforcement officers so they can hand out tickets to cyclists, pedestrians and motorists who break the law. The promise is part of a policy proposal Young has dubbed “mutual respect.” “The goal, after a period of adjustment, is to ticket no one,” she said, standing on a stretch of newly designed roadway Aug. 1 on 10th Avenue that includes separated bike lanes. “The goal is for Vancouver to be a city with mutual respect, with residents who know and respect the rules which keep people safe.” She pointed to cyclists riding on sidewalks, pedestrians walking against crossing lights and motorists who impede traffic “through poor driving skills or clearly endanger pedestrians or cyclists by not following the rules.” Young’s speech, however, was heavily weighted on scrapping the recent 10th Avenue bike route improvements, a promise she made

in launching her campaign last month. The stretch of new bike lanes, which were built alongside new sidewalks and roadway, run from Willow to Oak streets and cost $4.5 million. Young wants parking spots returned to the stretch of road to allow for better access to patients of Vancouver General Hospital, its emergency department and other health care services on West 10th Avenue. She said cyclists already have designated cycling routes on Seventh Avenue and 14th Avenue. The city has said it redeveloped the roadway to make the stretch safer for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists along the popular cycling route, which was busy with all three modes of transportation when Young delivered her speech. The Courier watched as some pedestrians crossing the street had close calls with cyclists travelling at various speeds. Cars wanting to access the hospital’s emergency department also had to yield to cyclists, as a posted sign outside the entrance demanded. “This bike lane has been installed at considerable

taxpayer cost and over the objections of thousands of residents who spoke up and spoke out against this ridiculous location,” she said, as an ambulance backed up behind her across a portion of a bike lane to respond to an emergency call at an apartment. “But did city hall listen? No, they are intent — as they have shown us for the last 10 years — to continue spending our tax dollars on two per cent of people who cycle to continue their ideological war on transportation.” Cyclist Carol Logan, who stopped her bicycle in the eastbound bike lane to answer questions from the Courier, said she disagreed with Young’s call to scrap the new bike lanes. Logan said she didn’t feel safe riding the stretch prior to the separated lanes being built. “I don’t support that,” she said, pointing to the success of Portland’s bike routes and the positive effect on that Oregon city. “We’re going backwards. We’re not evolving, we’re devolving with a decision like that.” Logan said she doesn’t have a car and will walk, take transit or use her bike

to get around the city. Her only complaint about the 10th Avenue bike route between Oak and Cambie is that it doesn’t continue for the whole stretch; the section running east from Willow to Ash streets doesn’t have separated bike lanes, while the one-block stretch from Ash to Cambie has become a one-way for vehicles, but open both ways for cyclists. Curt Moon was returning from an appointment at the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre on 10th Avenue when approached by the Courier. He said he parked on the fifth level of a nearby parkade, noting in his first visit to the centre he could find parking on the street. “We have a lot of bike lanes, why does this one have to be right here in front of the hospital?” he said, agreeing with concerned health workers that it should be a free flow of traffic along the road to allow vehicles to easily access the emergency department and other facilities. “If you have to come for an appointment like me, I’m not going to ride my bicycle here.” The election is Oct. 20.

Vancouver records worst week for overdose deaths this year Mike Howell

mhowell@vancourier.com

A total of 11 people died in the last week of July in Vancouver of a suspected drug overdose, making it the worst week on record this year of a crisis that continues to persist despite efforts from health care experts, emergency personnel and all three levels of government. The death toll was recorded between July 23 and 29 by the Vancouver Police Department, which has been providing city officials with up-to-date data on the deaths. So far this year, 206 people have died in the city of a suspected overdose, according to a city news release issued Aug. 3. Seven people who died in the last week of July were tenants of Atira Women’s Resource Society, a nonprofit housing operator whose CEO Janice Abbott took to Twitter last week to renew her call for a clean drug supply to prevent more deaths. Abbott told the Courier in an interview that none of her tenants was using drugs alone. Some died in their rooms, others in the community. “While shared using spaces and safe injection sites are absolutely critical as part of the plan to keep people safe, the only solution is a safe supply of drugs,” she said. “We had a 20-year-

old girl die. The people she was with didn’t notice [she had overdosed]. By the time they came and got staff, they were unable to revive her.” Frontline workers suspect the increase in overdoses and deaths are due to a high toxicity in street drugs. The data released Aug. 3 comes after B.C. Emergency Health Services said paramedics responded to 130 suspected overdose calls in a single day in the province. That occurred July 27, a few days after many of those living with an addiction received their social assistance cheques. All lives were saved. The number of calls was matched only once before in April 2017. Mayor Gregor Robertson called the death toll in Vancouver “simply ghastly.” He pointed out that despite

the most recent report from the B.C. Coroners Service showing that overdoses across the province decreased slightly in June, “we don’t see signs that we’ve turned a corner on this public health disaster in Vancouver.” Echoing Abbott’s plea, the mayor renewed his call for people to have access to safe prescription drugs “rather than being forced to turn to the deadly drugs from organized crime on our streets.” Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services also reported a surge in overdose calls, recording 147 that week. That was 47 per cent higher than the previous week, and 24 per cent higher than the weekly average for 2017. The coroners service reported that 365 people died of a drug overdose in Vancouver in 2017. @Howellings

Slice of waterfront paradise has been a well-kept secret since 1940s Grant Lawrence

grantlawrence12@gmail.com

For pretty much my entire life, I’ve made countless treks to a remote family cabin, beyond the end of the road, in pretty much the middle of nowhere. Door to door, the epic trek takes roughly seven hours, and that’s when the travel gods are smiling. The journey is fraught with major potential delays, including two B.C. ferries, three hours of gut-wrenching turns on the Sunshine Coast Highway, and a final motorboat crossing into the great beyond. I’ve always believed that was the kind of effort you simply had to endure to reach true, boat-access-only mainland coastal paradise. On the B.C. Day long weekend, I was shocked to discover a similar scenario exists mere minutes away from my home in East Vancouver. Our friends Cher and Romain recently purchased their own slice of heaven in a place called Brighton Beach. Ever heard of it? Until recently, neither had I. Brighton Beach is not to be confused with New Brighton Beach, the East Van park and public swimming pool just west of the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge. Brighton Beach is close by, but altogether different. To get to this hidden, boat-access only-enclave, you’ll need to cross the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge and drive into Deep Cove. That’s where we met Cher and Romain at the marina. Parking is a major challenge in the nowcompletely overrun Deep Cove (something about Kate Winslet’s social media enthusiasm for Honey’s Doughnuts?), but luckily my sister lives in the Cove so we had a reserved parking spot. We tossed our day bags onto Cher and Romain’s boat for the trip up Indian Arm on a brilliant summer day. Along the way, Romain pointed out spectacular waterfront homes in all manner of designs, some of which included elevators, escalators and helicopter pads. Romain also slowed down to show us the home that was featured in the opening credits of the near-classic Canadian show Danger Bay. As a kid growing up just outside of Paris, Romain watched Danger Bay on late night Parisian TV. That show, that house and “that cute girl driving the

jeep” served as Romain’s first glimpse of West Coast Canada. You can imagine his excitement when, many years later, he ended up living in Vancouver, and now motors his own boat past the “Danger Bay house” on a regular basis. Within 10 minutes of leaving the Deep Cove dock, we arrived at Brighton Beach. The 22-lot development is just beyond the end of the road on the west side of Indian Arm. The beach rings a beautiful, broad bay buffered by granite cliffs and towering cedar, fir and hemlock trees. A grassy meadow runs down to the beach, with pell-mell cabins built up on either side of a babbling creek. Down on the oceanfront, a large wooden wharf stands sentinel over the cabin-owners’ boats. I was stunned: we had arrived at a boat-access-only paradise that was a mere 40 minutes door-to-door from East Vancouver. The dock, like so many others I’ve frequented, served as a communitygathering place of sorts. I met a few other friendly owners, some of whom had been there for 20 years or more, one a dozen years, some just a couple. Apparently, the Brighton Beach development began in the late 1940s with a group of Second World War veterans. (Of the 22 lots, there remains just one family tie to the original veterans.) Since then, properties have changed hands many times, and many folks have taken long runs living at Brighton Beach full time. One large, beautiful two-bedroom home with a drop-dead ocean and mountain view is currently listed at $650,000, meaning it’s just about the cheapest detached waterfront home this side of… Halifax? You just need a boat. And a pretty good line of credit: no mortgages are allowed at Brighton Beach. It’s a corporation that sells shares in the property. When I asked one resident about the challenges of winter weather, he cracked a beer, took a long swig, belched, and replied, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.” Right, then! We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at Brighton Beach, hiking through the picturesque rainforest valley, swim-

ming in the unbelievably warm salt water and knocking back a few cold ones with the locals under the umbrellas on the communal dock. By 6 p.m., we were back in Cher and Romain’s boat heading for home. Just before we shoved off, I complimented the locals on

their oh-so-close-yet-oh-sosecret waterfront paradise (which, it should be noted, is entirely private property, right down to the dock). As we motored away, one of them yelled back, “We love it, but just don’t tell anyone about it, eh?” @grantlawrence

Opinion Here’s why Vancouver’s school board will be split for another four years Tracy Sherlock

tracy.sherlock@gmail.com.

Whatever the outcome of October’s civic election, the Vancouver School Board will have a whole new look. That’s because a couple of veterans are not running and the party that has dominated civic politics in Vancouver for the past decade is running only three candidates – not even enough to try for a majority on the board. Trustees who hope to return include the Green Party’s Janet Fraser, who topped the polls last October in the byelection and is the chair, and Estrellita Gonzalez, who came third. Vision Vancouver’s Allan Wong, who has served on the board since 1999, will seek to be the lone returning Vision trustee. The NPA’s Fraser Ballantyne and OneCity’s Carrie Bercic will run again. Bercic and Gonzalez were first elected just last October, while Fraser joined the board in 2014 and Ballantyne became a trustee in 2011. Saying goodbye are long-

time Vision trustees Joy Alexander and Ken Clement, as well as the Green Party’s Judy Zaichkowsky. The NPA’s Lisa Dominato, who was first elected to the VSB last fall, has announced her candidacy for city council. The NPA has not finalized its candidates, although Ballantyne was acclaimed. Vision is also running Erin Arnold, who worked for the provincial government as a social worker and manager, and Aaron Leung, the chair of the City of Vancouver Children, Youth and Families Advisory Committee. Lois Chan-Pedley, a member of the Britannia Parents’ Advisory Committee, rounds out the Green Party’s slate, while Erica Jaaf, an involved parent and clinical data manager, and Jennifer Reddy, who previously worked at VSB with immigrant youth, round out OneCity’s roster. COPE is running Barb Parrott, a retired teacher, and Diana Day, former Vancouver District PAC chair who is an advocate for

the Indigenous community. Julian Prieto is running for the newly formed Yes Vancouver party. Apologies to anyone I missed. No single party is trying to dominate the board, which means it will continue to be politically split, as it has been since 2014. In 2016, the split, with Fraser holding the deciding vote, proved to be a toxic blend and, amid charges of bullying, the board was ultimately fired for refusing to pass a balanced budget.

“During my time as a trustee the achievement I’m most proud of is helping to bring change to the VSB culture and tone so that the district can better focus on students and their success,” Fraser said in an email. “As chair, I have worked hard to ensure a safe and respectful environment.” Fraser’s top goal, if re-elected, is to ensure the five-year strategic plan continues to evolve and to renew the board’s emphasis on reconciliation.

Vision’s Wong said a top achievement in his 18 years on the board is the seismic mitigation program, a plan to renovate and rebuild schools so they are safe in an earthquake. He’s also proud of the district’s pioneering policy to protect LGBTQ+ students, something now required in every district, and his advocacy work on behalf of public education. Wong said support for students is his top goal but he noted that much of the board’s energy will necessarily be occupied with getting new schools built and old schools upgraded. The NPA’s Ballantyne said he is proud of being part of developing an atmosphere of transparent, professional discourse for all employee groups over the past year. Now, his top goal is to focus on improving results with Indigenous and most vulnerable students, particularly through dance and movement programs that teach life and learning skills. He says there is also an opportunity to increase community use of VSB schools, particularly for youth, seniors and child care.

OneCity’s Carrie Bercic says her top achievement is sticking to her values and keeping her promises. “I promised to always put students first and have shown that throughout my term,” Bercic said. “This is especially true with my motion on the budget to reverse cuts to resource, special ed, counselling, and teacher-librarian staffing.” Bercic’s motion was not carried; she says that won’t stop her from putting forward “bold” motions in the future. The Vancouver and District Labour Council endorsed Wong, Fraser, Bercic, Gonzalez, Arnold, Jaaf, Leung, Parrott and Reddy. The ballot will be in random order, not alphabetical. With the teachers’ contract expiring next year, the need for new schools and more and more pressure on the VSB’s real estate holdings, much is at stake in this transformative election.

Job Guarantee program worth investing in Re: “City’s music strategy aims to fix what’s plaguing Vancouver musicians,” July 19. Articles in your July 19 issue discuss ways to increase the incomes of musicians and those struggling in the Downtown Eastside. Under a bold federal Job Guarantee program, the government could fund non-profit groups to develop and manage useful work (e.g. care for seniors, youth recreation, arts and culture, and environmental protection), opening up job opportunities across the country for everyone willing to work. During the Second World War, the Michelle Bhatti

federal government used the Bank of Canada to make financially possible what was physically possible. The government fed, clothed and armed one million men and women in our military forces. Former NDP leader Tommy Douglas told Canadians, “If we could mobilize the.... resources of this country to fight a successful war against Nazi tyranny, we can... mobilize the same resources to fight a continual war against poverty, unemployment, and social injustice.” Today we have an “army” of over one million unemployed Canadians, their talents not needed by the private sector. The Job Guarantee program would provide macroeconomic stability by increasing a pool of JG workers when the economy is stagnant, but decreasing in more buoyant times when the private sector hires from this trained and productive workforce.

Vancouver artist Sara Khan is painting a little outside her usual box — her largest paintings to date measure about eight by six feet. She’s been working on a mural measuring about 60 feet wide for the annual Vancouver Mural Festival. “This is very insane,” she says with a laugh, adding that for the last several years she’s been working on much smaller, detailed pieces and primarily uses watercolour these days. Khan, who is originally from Pakistan and moved to Vancouver four years ago, is part of a group of artists hard at work on a

new batch of murals that will be part of this summer’s Vancouver Mural Festival, running in Mount Pleasant until Aug. 11. Started in 2016 by Create Vancouver Society, the festival aims to provide a platform for the city’s diverse art scene and to contribute to its cultural legacy. “Our mission really is to change the way art is seen in the city,” says Andrea Curtis, director of operations. The festival has grown since its inaugural run in 2016. Curtis says attendance went from 60,000 the first year to 100,000 last year and organizers are expecting up to 125,000 for this year’s edition. Khan and her fellow featured artists are not

working alone. All told, 40 artists are working on close to 30 walls with the help of 60 volunteers. The festival has a total of about 100 volunteers, Curtis says, adding that organizers fielded about 700 applications from artists this year. She says in putting together the festival, organizers chose an eclectic range of local and regional artists with backgrounds in fine art, tattooing, street art, graffiti and traditional and contemporary Indigenous design. Curtis said organizers also deliberately try to make sure the field of artists is balanced with at least 50 per cent of the artists being female or nonbinary, persons of colour and Aboriginal.

Hanna Lee Joshi graduated from Emily Carr with an animation degree. After several years working as a story board revisionist and artist for TV cartoons, including My Little Pony, she has spent the last few years doing freelance illustrations. She primarily works in digital. “This is my first big mural so I’m a little nervous,” she said last week. The local artists, which this year also include Danielle Krysa, the artist behind The Jealous Curator website and podcast, and Musqueam designer and weaver Debra Sparrow, are joined by an all-female lineup of international guest muralists — Faith XLVII from South Africa, Bunnie Reiss from Los

Angeles and BK Foxx from New York. The festival is also partnering on murals with local organizations, such as the Downtown Eastside Centre for the Arts, THRIVE Art Studio, Burrard Arts Foundation and Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House. With daily events, including mural tours, the festival culminates Aug. 11 with the Mount Pleasant Street Party, which runs from noon until 6 p.m., along Main Street from 12th to Seventh avenues. The festivities will include markets, street dance battles, graffiti jams, multiple beer gardens and entertainment on various stages. Organizers recently an-

nounced the musical lineup for the Main Street Main Stage, including Hannah Georgas, the Belle Game, Schwey and Shamik. New this year is a finale outdoor concert at Jonathan Rogers Park. The festival has partnered with Live Nation for The Park Show featuring Canadian Aboriginal DJ collective A Tribe Called Red, R&B singer/songwriter Charlotte Day Wilson and Teen Daze. Doors open at 6 p.m. For more information, go to vanmuralfest.ca. @JessicaEKerr For more information about all the festival events, visit vanmuralfest.ca.

News Six-storey rental building proposed for Fraser Street

A handful of three- and four-bedroom units is among what’s being proposed for a land assembly development on Fraser Street between East 22nd and 23rd Avenue. The site includes 686 East 22nd Ave., 3811 to 3833 Fraser St. and 679 East 23rd Ave. Strand Development, which is working with the firm Integra Architecture Inc., has filed a rezoning

application with the City of Vancouver for a six-storey mixed-use building with retail space at grade level. The proposal, which is for 121 market rental units, envisions 14 three- and two four-bedrooms in the mix, although the balance would feature fewer bedrooms — 10 studios, 60 one-bedrooms and 35 twobedrooms. City of Vancouver policy requires there be 35 per cent family housing at a minimum in multi-family redevelopments, with a

target of 10 per cent at three bedrooms. Family housing is defined as two and threebedrooms and up. The rezoning application is being pitched under the Affordable Housing Choices Interim Rezoning Policy. It was adopted in 2012 and allows for the consideration of rezoning proposals that are evaluated based on affordability, location and form of development. Initially, a maximum of 20 applications were to be accepted under the interim policy, but the policy was

updated at a council meeting in June. The cap was removed and submissions for rental housing projects under the policy will be accepted until March 31. This is meant to help the city meet its Housing Vancouver target for 20,000 units of purpose-built rental housing to be built over the next 10 years.

Olympic Village’s giant birds flying home

When making friends is the goal, everyone wins.

Jessica Kerr

With over 275,000 kids playing Timbits Soccer every season, Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners are proudly helping communities come together across Canada one game at a time.

After taking a long winter break, Olympic Village’s resident giant birds are almost ready to return home. The Birds by artist Myfanwy MacLeod was first installed in 2010 after the Winter Olympics. The sculptures, which weigh 3,500 pounds each, were removed in mid-November because they were showing signs of severe damage and disrepair, due to the weather as well as people climbing, riding bikes and skateboarding on large sections of the birds. First shipped to Calgary for repairs, the birds were then sent to China for recasting in aluminum. They are now back in Calgary for a fresh coat of paint before returning home to Vancouver. The restoration work is on schedule and the sculptures are expected to be reinstalled ahead of the 27th International Ornithological Congress and

Timbits Soccer, where the first goal is having fun.TM

jkerr@vancourier.com

the inaugural Vancouver International Bird Festival, which are running Aug. 19 to 26. The extent of the repairs was more than initially anticipated. “The degree of damage done by skateboarding, resulting in deterioration of the hard shell and external finishing was worse than anticipated and resulted in the need for both internal and external repairs,” City of Vancouver staff said in an email. Re-casting the birds in aluminum will provide greater strength and durability. The cost of removing, rebuilding and reinstalling the sculptures is expected to come in under $400,000, original estimates pegged the cost at around $425,000. The money is coming from a reserve fund previously set up for maintenance of public art. “This restoration will ensure that a beloved work of art will stay with us for a very long time,” staff said. @JessicaEKerr

Summer in Victoria Staying at Magnolia Hotel means no need for a car touring Garden City SANDRA THOMAS sthomas@vancourier.com Standing on the Breakwater Barge at the Greater Victoria Harbour, an unexpectedly strong gust of wind swayed the platform just enough to remind our group that we were actually floating on the ocean. But looking around at the crowd enjoying local beer, cider, wine and live music, it was obvious a little wind was not going to dampen anyone’s spirits on this cool June evening. This is only the second year the Breakwater Barge has been open to the public, but the

concept has proven to be a popular one. Every Friday evening until Sept. 28, families, couples and individuals of all ages flock to the harbour at Ogden Point to check out popular food trucks, enjoy craft wine and beer, dance, and take in the ocean view. There’s always lots going on in Victoria year-round, but there’s a special vibe in the summer when visitors and locals can enjoy the city and surrounding areas unencumbered by their MEC and North Face rain jackets.

During a recent visit to the Garden City we stayed at the Magnolia Hotel and Spa because of its proximity to so many attractions, but staff at the property have taken touring Victoria to a whole new level. They’ve created walking maps highlighting the best of the city for guests to use as guides during their stay — all within walking distance of the hotel — including the Rainy Day Trail, Craft Brewery Tour, Tapas Trail, Tea-riffic Trail, Beautiful Boutiques Trail, Best Places for Romance and the Running Trail. The Magnolia also has Norco cruiser bikes available for guests to borrow so they can explore

Victoria on two wheels with one of their three bike maps — visit St. Ann’s Academy and Beacon Hill Park; take in Craigdarroch Castle and the Art Gallery; or follow the Bikes, Beans & Blooms trail. The Magnolia is considered a “boutique” hotel because of its size — the fact it’s smaller than many of its neighbouring properties was part of the appeal for my husband

and me when booking our stay. The hotel is one very short block from Victoria’s Inner Harbour and despite the fact it’s not located directly on the water, we could see the ocean and harbour from our room thanks to a view corridor between buildings. The Inner Harbour is where you want to be if you’re considering popular activities such as whale

watching expeditions, boat tours, scenic flights, horsedrawn carriage rides and double-decker bus tours. By staying at the Magnolia, we were also just blocks away from the Royal Museum, B.C. Parliament buildings, the Victoria Conference Centre and Beacon Hill Park. For the complete version of this story, visit vancourier.com.

device jammed in one ear so I could stay in touch with the director of my nightly newscast. Maybe that had something to do with my hearing issue, one I steadfastly denied. I’ve also learned about NexGen Hearing and what makes them different, as they have an established purpose to go far beyond just product sales. They truly care about people and their quality of life. That’s rare!

Tony Parsons: a lesson worth hearing

Sincethen,I’vecometoknowabouttheeducational side of their business and the information and support they can and do provide. I have since been approached by Marke Hambley, President of NexGenHearing,askingthatIconsideraroleinthe company. Today, I am delighted to say that I have committed to speaking out about hearing loss as the official spokesperson for NexGen Hearing and the Hear 4U Foundation. The first commercial endorsement I have ever accepted, I might add!

Like so many other seniors, I’ve admittedly been reluctant to acknowledge the shortcomings that go with the aging process. You know what we’re like, after all we hear just fine! It’s not our fault if everyone else mumbles. I hear what I want to hear and that’s good enough for me. That’s when some friends convinced me to try the free hearing test at NexGen Hearing in Kelowna. Audiologist Colin VanBergen and his team made the whole experience a pleasure and after the test I came to know that I do indeed have a rather significant problem with my hearing. Since then, I have seen an ENT surgeon and have gradually obtained knowledge. Both hearing professionals have patiently schooled me on some of the aspects of my hearing loss. Today I’m now wearing hearing aids and yes, I admit now that I needed them years ago. Consonants and I are becoming friends again and oddly enough…my wife doesn’t seem to mumble any more! Much to my surprise they are so helpful, discrete and quite comfortable. I spent years and years as a broadcaster with a hearing

Another rescue mission and thankfully no damage! How would I explain that to my Audiologist!? So considering that 1 in 4 Canadians suffer some form of hearing loss, I urge you to not delay as I did. Call NexGen Hearing and take advantage of their free Hearing Test!

The dog ate my hearing aids Oh, and by the way, I’ve become so comfortable wearing my new hearing aids that recently I stepped into the shower still wearing them. Yikes! I realized it just in time, and yanked them back to safety. Then I came close to losing them again. I had carelessly left them on a small table near the TV that I was watching and much to my horror Morley, one of my dogs, tried to make a meal of them.

Been getting the message?

Your untreated Hearing Loss affects the ones you love. More words start with the letter ‘S’ than any other letter. But if you have a hearing loss it can feel as though those words have been removed from your hearing dictionary. You have probably also lost the ability to hear the letters; ‘F-P-K & T’. With untreated hearing loss, you won’t be hearing those words either. Hearing aids from NexGen Hearing can put the words back and make hearing easier.

Call for details.

New talk show will focus on issues facing older Canadians

Carmen Ruiz y Laza says CARPe Diem also promises to be a lot of fun

your hearing is our only priority The WIDHH Hearing Clinic goes beyond just selling hearing aids. We have been trusted with the hearing of British Columbians for over 60 years. Make your appointment with us today.

SANDRA THOMAS sthomas@vancourier.com Seize the day! That’s the message Zoomer Media TV host Carmen Ruiz y Laza will be delivering to older adults when her new talk show CARPe Diem, launches on Joytv Aug. 13. “Some people are sad to grow old,” says Ruiz y Laza. “So we’re going to show these Zoomers how to seize each day.” CARPe Diem is produced by Zoomer Media Limited, which creates Zoomer magazine and TV shows for a baby boomer audience. The show is in partnership with the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP), the largest advocacy association for older Canadians in the country. Wanda Morris, vice-president of advocacy for CARP, will be a frequent guest. Ruiz y Laza says the show will not only cover serious issues affecting older Canadian adults — from retirement to seniors’ poverty to Pharmacare — but also fun topics such as travel, technology, love and fitness. Ruiz y

Laza adds with the backing of CARP’s more than 300,000 members, this is also an opportunity to create “feet to the fire” campaigns, making politicians accountable for keeping election promises and to encourage them to advocate on behalf of seniors. “Like the ‘eat or heat’ issue in Ontario when seniors had to choose between eating and paying their Hydro bills to keep warm,” says Ruiz y Laza.

Ruiz y Laza also wants to smash common stereotypes around aging with CARPe Diem. “We need to change this dialogue that says an aging face has no place on TV,” Ruiz y Laza says of the fact many TV broadcasters lose their jobs after a certain age, in particular women. “I began my on-air career at age 52, so I’m proof there is life after 50.” CARPe Diem will air on Joytv Mondays and Fridays at 5 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time).

Snap, crackle, pop-up event

And four other reasons Vancouver is awesome this week Lindsay William-Ross

Saturday Mornings cereal PopUp Vol. 1 A bowl of sugary cereal is the breakfast of champions for kids and a late night snack for lazy grownups. While it’s quite possibly the easiest thing to “cook” at home, the thrill of getting cereal in public with your peers remains alluring. That’s why there’s going to be a oneday cereal bar pop-up event, put on by a local effort aptly called “Saturday Mornings.” The organizers have curated five “signature bowls” using “a mix of local favorites and hard to find overseas brands.” They’ll have vegan and glutenfree options, and one for dogs, too, at this cash-only event. But supplies are limited, so when they sell out, that’s it. And Mikey definitely doesn’t like it when that happens.

Rachel Langer has been in pain every moment of every day since she was 14. It’s not always the same type of pain, either. Langer identifies three separate strains that rock and roll within her: the achy pain that’s been a near-constant companion for roughly half her life; the stabbing pain that rears itself at least once a day; and the flare-up pain, the intensity of which has sent her to the ER on numerous occasions. “I live with some form [of pain], sometimes all forms, every day,” says Langer matter-of-factly. The root cause is endometriosis: tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus grows outside of it, forming lesions and gluing organs together. Endometriosis affects one in 10 Canadian women and there’s no cure. But the Leo Awardwinning, Vancouver-based screenwriter — whose growing list of credits includes This Life, Ghost Wars, and the highly anticipated series The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco and The Order — is leveraging her position within the film and television industry to draw attention to a disease that is largely misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and woefully underfunded. Langer first opened up about her long health battle in a widely circulated essay entitled “3 Surgeries, Fiery Pain, Dismissive Docs: My Life With Endometriosis,” which ran in Chatelaine and Medium. Her social media feeds document hospital visits and writing for television through searing pain, as well as selfies with a stuffed

Rachel Langer.

uterus toy she’s named “Rachel’s raging uterus.” And last month, Langer partnered with filmmakers erin cumming and Sheona McDonald on Inside Out, a documentary pitch for Storyhive with the tagline “Rachel Langer didn’t choose endometriosis, but she did choose to talk about it.” Langer wasn’t always so eager to speak publicly about her endometriosis. “I’d waited until I had enough gigs that I felt like people would still hire me regardless of their opinions on the matter,” says Langer. “I ended up speaking out because I felt like there was so much of my life that was being hidden away, which didn’t feel right.” But, by sharing her story, Langer has impacted more lives than just her own, as she learned when her 2017 essay went viral. “I’ve heard from so many women who say, ‘I didn’t know that other people were going through this, and I felt so alone,’ which isn’t what I was going for but it’s a nice by-product,” she says. Women with endometriosis often feel isolated because “the reproductive system is still widely associated with hysteria,” says Langer. “People just think,

‘Period cramps, that sucks, yours are just a little more bad,’ and I’m like, ‘No, this is every day, all the time, this is a hostile takeover of my lady parts with rage-y cells that cause massive amounts of pain.’” Doctors don’t always know what to do with endometriosis patients, says Langer, who first felt the searing pain of endometriosis at 14 but had to wait 11 more years for an ovarian cyst to burst before doctors were able to diagnose her. She’s been prescribed nerve medication. She’s been told to go on continuous birth control. She’s had two IUDs. “It’s been suggested multiple times that I get pregnant because it could help for nine months, even though infertility can increase sometimes by up to 50 per cent,” notes Langer. Langer — who is scheduled for a hysterectomy, a procedure that does not guarantee an end to her woes — is quick with a list of action items that she believes will dramatically improve the lives of patients with endometriosis: more funding for research, more training for triage (“they’re just not designed to work with chronic issues) and, the big one, believe women when they tell you something’s wrong. “I’ve read countless stories where women have gone to the emergency room, are sent home and end up with a burst cyst or twisted ovary,” says Langer. “I have a lot of privilege that comes with being a cis white women walking into the emergency room. It’s much harder for women of colour or trans women dealing with this kind of thing. We need to open that up and just believe women.”

Arts & Entertainment THE GROWLER: DRINK THIS

Corvus Lingonberry Lime Gose by Ravens Brewing Rob Mangelsdorf

editor@thegrowler.ca

One of the great things about the recent craft beer revolution is all the obscure beer styles that are being resurrected. Take the gose (pronounced goes-uh), for instance. This traditional salted sour wheat ale dates back to the 1500s and all but died out in the late 20th century. Thankfully, the style was saved from the brink of extinction in the ’90s in its native Germany and has made its way to North America in recent years. It’s a unique style, and one that has captured many a craft brewers’ imagination. The modest salt content in these beers helps bring the sweetness and bitterness into balance while also enhancing the flavour and adding a slight briny character. The end result is a beer that’s light, refreshing and remarkably well balanced. Goses also provide a wonderful palette for fruit flavours

The Corvus Lingonberry Lime Gose won gold at the 2018 World Beer

thanks to their tartness. Which brings us to the Corvus Lingonberry Lime

Gose by Abbotsford’s Ravens Brewing. This beer won a gold medal at the 2018 World Beer Cup, which is a pretty big deal, and it’s easy to see why: it’s tart, flavourful and endlessly refreshing. Truth be told, I’m not very familiar with lingonberry. I think I had some lingonberry jam at Ikea once, but I couldn’t tell you what it tasted like. To my palate, Corvus tastes like cranberry and rhubarb with a bright citrus kick. The tartness of the lingonberry is accented by the beer’s acidity, and that briny note — courtesy of pink Himalayan salt — takes the edge off, bringing everything into balance.

Corvus Lingonberry Lime Gose by Ravens Brewing

(4.5 per cent ABV)

Appearance: Hazy ruby grapefruit colour with a fine white head. Aroma: Citrus, rhubarb, brine, cranberry. Flavour: Tart acidity, bright citrus flavour, cranberry, rhubarb, briny notes with a hint of wheat character. Body: Light bodied with a refreshingly dry, tart finish. Pairs with: Pretty much anything, but how about roasted reindeer, ceviche and tiny Allen wrenches.

Both the festival and hockey team accomplished first-year success that few could’ve predicted. Neither had a reference point to guide them, both laid roots in untapped markets. The jury’s out on whether the Knights can return to the Stanley Cup final, but the guitar festival is undeniably winning in its second year. “It went from being talked about locally, to across Canada, to being an international story,” said Coloma, who’s recognized globally as one of the most successful young luthiers. “These were baby steps that we were trying to take, saying to ourselves, ‘I hope this goes well.’ And now there is that interest.” Running Aug. 11 and 12, the second iteration of the festival can be summed up by one word — more. More luthiers, more space, more demonstrations, more masterclasses, more guitars. For starters, the venue is bigger. What was held in the Chinese Cultural Centre last year will be housed in the Creekside Community Centre in Olympic Village. While 2017 saw the inclusion of luthiers predominantly from Canada and the U.S., the upcoming shred fest features guitar builders and players from across Europe, Asia and North America. Rock stars of the luthier world who’ll be in Vancouver include Ervin Somogyi, whose guitars command upwards of $30,000 a pop; James Trussart, the builder behind axes used by Bob Dylan, Keith Richards and Eric Clapton; and Vancouverite Michael Dunn, one of Canada’s longest-standing guitar makers. It’s Dunn’s 50-plus year career in particular that gets the red carpet treatment next weekend. One of Canada’s first and best-known luthiers, Dunn will receive the Luthier Industry Builder Award, which is the equivalent of

a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys.

‘I just like building guitars’

Now semi-retired, Dunn has built 660 guitars over his 53-year career. He mentored about 120 people in the ways of the wood while teaching luthiery over an eight-year span at Douglas College. Speaking from his East Vancouver home and shop, Dunn would rather wax on about modes and scales than personal accolades. “I haven’t really thought about that, but I guess I’m going to be called upon to say something,” he quipped. “This is really nice to get an award like this. I’m kind of humbled by it. But I just like building guitars.” Dunn broke into the guitar game in the mid-1960s while working in a West Side shop. At first, he was your basic guitar setup guy: change the strings, adjust the alignment, make sure the thing plays in tune. The shop owner led Dunn into a room with dozens of guitars that needed love and, at the age of just 22, Dunn knew why he was put on Earth. “The minute I walked into that room with 35 guitars to fix, I knew that was what I wanted to do with my life,” he recalled. “There was no doubt. I crossed a threshold and said ‘I’m going to be a guitar maker.’” A three-year apprenticeship followed in Spain, where Dunn learned under third-generation luthiers. He came

back to Vancouver in 1970 and was a big fish in a small pond, given there were only six to 10 luthiers in B.C. at that time. Now there’s somewhere in the neighbourhood of 120, all of whom have the benefit of instructional books, YouTube tutorials and a generation’s worth of knowledge to soak in. “It would be much more difficult today for a luthier starting out, simply because of the scarcity of luthiers when I started,” said Dunn, 75. “By comparison, we would have been considered an endangered species back then. Now, everybody has a brother and the family dog who is building a guitar.” Dunn estimates the build process takes somewhere between 100 and 200 hours, though he’s never made a point to count. He prefers hand tools over power tools, and lists introspection, playing and patience as the holy trinity of luthiery. “You can either learn patience, or bash your head against the wall. Learning to be patient is easier,” Dunn said. “And the better you can play the guitar, the more accurately you’ll be able to self-assess your work.”

Hands of fury

The words “guitar” and “work” have been two peas in a pod for Dave Martone’s entire adult life. A professional musician for going on 25 years, Martone has played alongside masters who have reached the pinnacle of guitar play-

ing: Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen and Paul Gilbert. Martone’s Aug. 11 masterclass “The Combined Hands of Fury” will speak to his versatility across every conceivable genre of music, including flamenco, classical, rock and heavy metal. He’ll inevitably touch on technique and tone, though Martone’s ace in the hole can’t be learned in a book or video. “It comes down to one word — confidence,” he said. “Have confidence in yourself and what you do. Have the confidence so that you can step on the stage and remember that you’ve practised it and you can own it.” Those pearls of wisdom came from Vai, widely considered one of the greatest guitar players ever. The pair were playing a workshop together in California 17 years ago when Martone asked the elder statesman for career advice. Those words stuck and are applicable in a context much larger than fretboards and pickups. “I’m not saving someone’s life. This isn’t brain surgery or heart surgery — I’m playing music,” Martone said. “If I miss one note in a scale, who cares? It doesn’t matter. Relax, be confident and don’t take it too seriously. Music is supposed to be fun.” @JohnKurucz Tickets for the Vancouver International Music Festival are online at vancouverguitarfestival.com

The hockey blog that knows who needs the puck

What would you trade to get Jack Hughes on the Canucks? Brother of Canucks prospect Quinn Hughes is expected to go first overall in 2019

Backhand Sauce

Stick-taps & Glove-drops • I’m dropping the gloves with John Vanbiesbrouck and USA Hockey. Vanbiesbrouck’s past use of a racial slur in reference to Trevor Daley has made his appointment as assistant executive director of hockey operations with USA Hockey controversial, particularly since he has never reached out to Daley to apologize and refuses to do so.

Big Numbers

Daniel Wagner

The two best players in Canucks history were identical red-headed Swedish twins. Let’s take a moment to appreciate just how unlikely that was, both because of the confluence of genetics and environment that created the Sedins, but also how they ended up together on the Canucks. Canucks GM at the time, Brian Burke worked a minor miracle to select both Daniel and Henrik Sedin at the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. Already holding the third overall pick, Burke traded Bryan McCabe and a 2000 first round pick to the Chicago Blackhawks for fourth overall. He moved that pick plus two thirdround picks to the Tampa Bay Lightning for first overall, then swapped first and second overall with the Atlanta Thrashers so that he could call both Sedins up to the stage at the same time. Against all odds, the Canucks once again have a chance to be led into the future by two brothers: Jack and Quinn Hughes. The Canucks already have one of the Hughes brothers, taking Quinn seventh overall at this year’s draft. Quinn is a dynamic offensive defenceman, the type of point-scoring, puck-moving, top-pairing defenceman the Canucks haven’t had since Paul Reinhart was patrolling the blue line in the late ’80s. The question is can the Canucks get both brothers? Jack Hughes is even better than his older brother. He’s an elite playmaking centre, who is nearly a lock to go first overall at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. With the 2019 draft taking place in Vancouver, what could the Canucks do to get the first overall pick and select Jack Hughes in front of the hometown crowd? Let’s imagine a hypothetical situation where the Canucks are bad next season (OK, only partially hypothetical), but the typical Canucks’ luck holds and they don’t get the first overall pick in the draft lottery. With a top-five pick to trade, what other assets could the Canucks offer to pry a first overall away from whichever team is lucky enough to win it? The difficulty is that it’s harder to trade for top picks than it used to be. The first overall pick hasn’t been traded since 2003 and the last time a top-five pick was

24 The World Junior Summer Showcase in Kamloops was mostly a good-natured and fun exhibition, but Quinn Hughes still found a way into a lot of scrums, mostly in defence of his younger brother. He ended up with 24 penalty minutes in just four games.

15 Heading into Wednesday’s

action in Da Beauty League, a summer hockey league featuring plenty of NHLers, Brock Boeser was tied for the league lead in scoring with nine goals and 15 points in four games. His back has healed up nicely since his lateseason injury.

traded was 2008, when the Leafs moved up to take Luke Schenn. Acquiring first overall for the cost of fourth overall and a couple third-round picks, like in 1999, just isn’t going to happen. In order to get first overall, the Canucks would probably have to give up a top-flight young player in addition to their pick. While the likes of Brock Boeser and Elias Pettersson won’t even be considered, there are some players that Canucks fans would likely be comfortable seeing moved out to get Jack Hughes. Olli Juolevi, Jonathan Dahlen, Adam Gaudette, Kole Lind — each of these players would be an acceptable price to pay. That’s probably why it would take more than that. What if, instead, the cost to acquire Jack Hughes is the Canucks’ pick plus Bo Horvat? Horvat became the Canucks’ first-line centre last season, but Hughes has the potential to be one of the best centres in

the league. Would you move Horvat, one of the Canucks’ best young players and potentially the next captain of the team, for a shot at a true franchise centre? Is that too high a price or exactly the type of bold move the Canucks need to kickstart their rebuild? Would that even be enough? Perhaps there’s another, more palatable option: a package of draft picks instead of a key roster player. It would likely have to start with both their 2019 and 2020 first round picks. It might feel better than moving an established young player like Horvat, but it’s a risk, as the 2020 pick could also be a high pick. If that’s what it would take, would you make the move? Will the Canucks?
