GETTING AN EARFUL: A young attendee at the third annual Vancouver Mini Maker Faire tries out

s the City of Vancouver looks for innovative ways to build affordable housing, the city’s aging fire halls are being eyed as potential sites to incorporate renters with firefighters. The city already has one such complex planned for the redevelopment of the No. 5 fire hall at 54th Avenue and Kerr Street and it could serve as a model for future projects. “I would consider it for any new fire hall,” said Mark Engler, deputy chief of operations for Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services, who recommended rental housing be included in the redevelopment of No. 5 hall. “The city just can’t afford to spend millions and millions on just a fire hall.” Engler pointed to fire halls at Main and Powell, Hamilton and Smithe, Haro and Thurlow and the main hall at Heatley and Prior as being located on “prime valuable land.” It would only be prudent, he said, to think about adding housing to future redevelopment of the properties, many of which are located in neighbourhoods dominated by highrises. The next hall up for redevelopment is at 55th and Knight but Engler said the location is not ideal for housing because it’s not close to many amenities and it’s on a noisy strip. As for the No. 5 hall, Engler said its proximity to Champlain Mall, bus routes and a nearby community centre make it “a perfect spot” for housing. But, he said, the department has made it clear to city staff that the design and needs of the fire hall come first and housing, second. See FIRE HALL’S on page 4

Fishpondinsanctuarydoesn’tflywithneighbours HASTINGS PARK STOCKS POND WITH STERILIZED TROUT FOR PUBLIC FISHING SANDRA THOMAS Staff writer

C

ommunity members say the PNE and Vancouver Park Board are on the hook for something fishy going on at Hastings Park. Sherry Breshears, with the Hastings Community Association, said when the PNE first proposed an urban fishing program in 2012, including a pier, for the pond located within the Sanctuary at Hastings Park, several groups wrote letters to the park board outlining their concerns. The PNE partnered with Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. to develop the program, which saw the pond recently stocked with sterilized trout. The board of the PNE includes a representative from city council, Vision Vancouver Coun. Raymond Louie who sits as chair, and park board general manager Malcolm Bromley who sits as vice-chair. “After we heard about the project the [Hastings Park Conservancy] did some research on the effects it would have on bird and water life and discovered it wasn’t a good idea,” said Breshears. “But the PNE ignored those warnings.” The conservancy listed several concerns, including one that the installation of the pier and increased noise and human activity is disruptive to ducks and other aquatic birds nesting on the secluded north end of the pond. Breshears said the association,

Leah Sonne (left) and Sherry Breshears, on the pond’s newly built dock, say bird and water life are being negatively affected by the public fish pond at the Sanctuary at Hastings Park. the conservancy and Friends of Hastings Park wrongly assumed that because of their concerns the PNE and city would hold off on introducing the program. So members were surprised when the spring/summer program guide at the Hastings Community Centre included “Learn to Fish” courses beginning June 11. The course description reads in part, “All sessions run at the north end of the

Sanctuary Pond in Hastings Park and are free but you must sign up in advance. This is a Vancouver Park Board Program…” But according to the park board, the PNE still falls solely under the management of the city, so information about the program must come from that source. Vision Vancouver park board chair Sarah Blyth, who also sits on the PNE’s board, did give the program her

full support. Blyth, who had just returned days before from a fishing trip with her young son, said the sport taught him many skills and gave him confidence. “It was wonderful to see my son learning about environmental systems and how birds eat fish,” said Blyth. “It also teaches kids about where their food comes from and the circle of life.”

Blyth noted there are 50 children registered for the Learn to Fish program, which speaks to the popularity of such a course. “Sometimes it’s hard to get kids attention when it comes to environmental education,” said Blyth. “But it’s exciting for children to catch fish.” But Leah Sonne, a regular visitor to Hastings Park, is already seeing problems. Sonne said picking up abandoned fishing hooks and line has become commonplace during her daily walks through the park. “It’s an ongoing danger to birds,” said Sonne. “I find line and hooks stuck in trees, which can get trapped in their wings.” Sonne added this past weekend there were many people fishing the pond in restricted nesting areas. “The definition of a sanctuary is a place for growth and nesting,” said Sonne. “Not fishing.” The lack of an environmental study also has the groups concerned, but Dave Hutch, project manager for the Hastings Park Master Plan, said such studies aren’t required for man-made lakes. He added new signs and the presence of “ambassadors” from Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. will ensure people comply with the area restrictions while fishing. “And people fishing in restricted areas will be asked to comply or leave,” said Hutch.

Fire hall’s housing plan calls for 29 suites

photo Dan Toulgoet

The Vancouver Fire Department is recommending rental units be included in the replacement building of No. 5 hall as a means to increase rental housing in the city.

CONTINUED from page 1 “They’ll be totally separate addresses, totally separate entrances, they’ll be no crossover, no mixing of any areas except for maybe the parking underneath,” Engler said. What about the noise from the fire hall? “People moving into the building will know that a fire hall is below and there will be noises,” he replied. Details of the project are outlined in a request for proposal document on the city’s website, where it says the housing portion of the development will be a three-storey wood-framed structure and cost $6 million. Plans call for 11 one-bedroom, 600 sq. foot apartments and 18 bachelor suites at 400 sq. feet each. All will be built to rent but the city hasn’t calculated or revealed costs. “We’re limited by how much open land there is now, so we can only go up or build in places we never thought possible before,” said Vision Vancouver Coun.

Kerry Jang. “It’s a way of trying to be creative. We’ve got to find affordability somewhere.” Though the city says it will manage the construction of the entire project, it wants proponents to provide input regarding the design of the complex “and to make a funding contribution to the affordable rental housing component.” The project is in line with goals set out in the city’s housing and homelessness strategy, which has a target to build 5,000 non-market rental units by 2021. Having tenants located in the same complex as afirehallinVancouverwillbeunprecedented.But a fire hall sharing a building with another agency is not; the hall near 10th and Granville is located in the same building as a public library branch.

The city is hosting a public hearing on how it plans to deal with a growing population, which could increase to 765,00 by 2041. Vancouver’s current population is 601,200. how the city’s plans and policies support the goals of the Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy.” Yes, I know what you’re thinking — could you bore me even more, Mike, by using such bureaucratic language as “regional context statement “ to get an already disengaged public excited about weighing in on an important civic topic?

Answer: Not really. But just think of Metro Vancouver’s strategy as big brother telling little brother (Vancouver) that this is, basically, how I suggest you live your life, but I’d like to hear what you think. The main goals of what Metro Vancouver set out in its regional growth strategy are probably ideas you’ve heard politicians talk

Lot of fuss being made about whether the City of Vancouver will actually replace nowretired homeless advocate Judy Graves. Vision Vancouver Coun. Kerry Jang told me at Graves’ retirement party May 29 that the city will likely hire three to four people to take over Graves’ work. A few days later, Jang told me he had since heard from city staff the plan is to have one person leading the team. The person will have the same autonomy as Graves, who regularly told council what was needed to get people off the street. “It’ll be a new Judy plus a group of other folk,” he said. “And we want them all to have very big mouths — everyone on that team. It’s absolutely required.” mhowell@vancourier.com twitter.com/Howellings

rowth is good Not too many sitting politicians would argue with that statement. Because, as many have told me, welcoming more people to Vancouver means more jobs, a stronger economy and a more vibrant city. For many, though, it means high real estate prices, traffic congestion and, generally, a more expensive place to live/survive. Regardless of that struggle, people are coming here to live. Vancouver’s population in 2006 was 601,200 and could increase to 765,000 people by 2041, according to what is called the city’s “regional context statement development plan.” What the heck is that? On June 11, you can find out more about this plan by attending a public hearing at city hall. The city is hosting the hearing because, well, the law says it has to.

vancouver minute Courier launches new film contest VANCOUVER MINUTE SEEKS DIGITAL SHORTS ABOUT THE CITY ANDREW FLEMING Staff writer

V

ancouver is known for being home to a large number of film industry workers and a place where many people say they feel socially isolated or disconnected from their community. A new Courier contest is shooting to do something about the latter by tapping into the former. Beginning June 5, amateur and professional filmmakers are invited to send in short films to a new contest launched in partnership with London Drugs called Vancouver Minute. A total of $2,500 worth of prizes is up for grabs and the only requirements are that the shorts focus on something specific to life in B.C.’s biggest city and not exceed 60 seconds in length. The new project is an offshoot of the Courier’s ongoing Vancouver Special series, a biweekly profile launched in January of each of the city’s 26 diverse neighbourhoods. Along with the Vancouver Special stories that appear in Friday editions of the newspaper (the next area of the city being given its close-up is Riley Park-Little Mountain), the Courier has also posted additional short video segments created by entertain-

contest’s judges. “The videos can really be about anything. It could be a mockumentary about a new craze for doing yoga in the rain, a rom-com about two shunned Canucks rioters who find love together or instead something that looks at some of the

serious issues that affect Vancouver residents like gentrification, traffic congestion or the loss of cultural venues. The only criteria are that they have to be shot within city limits and only take a minute to watch.” Filmmakers can enter the contest by sending an email with the subject headline “Vancouver Minute video contest” to contest@ vancourier.com with a link to footage from their YouTube channels or Vimeo accounts, or also by uploading files directly to the Courier using Dropsend. More information on contest rules and how to enter is available at contest.vancourier.com. The top 10 finalists chosen by Courier staff will appear the day after the contest submission deadline July 17 and online voting will last until Aug. 2. A panel of judges made up of professional filmmakers will choose the winner of a grand prize worth $1,500 in London Drugs gift certificates. Another $1,000 in merchandise will go to the top entry as picked by viewers, potentially one and the same. Two more gift certificates of $250 each will go to randomly selected Vancouver Minute contest voters. The winners will be announced Aug. 5. afleming@vancourier.com twitter.com/flematic

Everyone has a story, what’s yours? The Vancouver Courier is calling on all filmmakers—young, old, students, hobbyists, talented or otherwise. Following on the success of our neighbourhood series, Vancouver Special, we’re launching Vancouver Minute—a contest giving city residents the opportunity to share thoughts and stories about your neighbourhoods in the form of a sixty second video. Your “minute” can be shot in any style or genre—documentary, mockumentary, drama, comedy, an animated story, even a music video. There are three categories of prizes—first, a Juried Prize of $1500, second, a People’s Choice Prize of $1000 and finally, two Voters’ Prizes of $250 each drawn randomly from those of you who’ve voted. All prizes are in the form of gift coupons courtesy of London Drugs. To submit a video and to browse the small print, go to www.contest.vancourier.com. Final date for entries is July 10, 2013.

Street photographer Foncie Pulice took more than 15 million photos over his lifetime in Vancouver, including this one of a little girl on the 700-block Granville Street in 1968.

Foncie’s street photos part of new exhibit CHERYL ROSSI Staff writer

I

n the era before people had personal cameras, let alone cameras built into their phones, street photographers snapped shots of passersby in Vancouver. “We have lots of stories of people coming to town and looking forward to having their photo taken as part of the souvenir of their visit to the big city,” said Joan Seidl, who has curated a new exhibit about Vancouver’s most famous street photographer, Foncie Pulice, for the Museum of Vancouver. Foncie’s Fotos: Man on the Street opens June 6 and runs until Jan. 5 at 1100 Chestnut St. The exhibit includes projections of 10,700 images that Pulice shot over just two months on Granville Street near Robson Street in 1968, along with photos that date from the late 1930s to 1979. Born in 1914, Pulice was an Italian-Canadian who grew up in Strathcona. He initially worked as a housepainter but was drawn to his friend’s job as a street photographer. “His friend seemed to be having a lot of luck meeting women that way,” Seidl said. Pulice opened Foncie’s Fotos in 1946 when his fiancée bought him his first camera. The camera Pulice donated to the museum when he retired in 1979 is featured in the exhibit. It’s a tall assemblage of war surplus metal plate on wheels with a car battery powering its flash. Pulice bought it from his competitor, Cecil Hutchison of Electric Photos. “[It] had a flash so he could take photos of you at night or maybe at night not just under a movie marquee where the marquee supplied the lighting,” Seidl said. The camera used large reels of movie film

so that Pulice could shoot for hours. Pulice would snap a person’s photo and then hand him or her a numbered claim ticket with the address of his storefront. The individual could visit the next day, study the negative of the photo under a magnifying glass and then order prints. Pulice shot indiscriminately. He took thousands of photos each year and about 15 million over his lifetime in Vancouver. He snapped children, seniors, Chinese-Canadians, aboriginal people and people of all classes mostly on Granville Street and at the PNE. At a time when family portraits were expensive, Pulice sometimes created the only surviving image of a family member. “It’s like everybody’s in motion, stepping forward,” Seidl said. “I imagine them striding purposefully into their future.” Pulice, the last of Vancouver’s street photographers, died in 2003. Meeting descendants of those captured by Pulice has highlighted concerns for Seidl. “[People are] stumbling over the concrete remnant of Foncie’s work, the little threeand-a-half-inch by four-inch-high black and white photo. And the concrete reality of that is what’s raising these questions for them about their parents or their grandparents or life in Vancouver at an earlier time,” said Seidl, director of collections and exhibitions for the museum. “I just don’t know how we’re going to stumble over these digitized things. I have a hard enough time finding them when I actually go looking through my digitized photos.” The exhibit also includes shorts produced by the Knowledge Network.

news EX-KGB agent marks fourth year in sanctuary MIKHAIL LENNIKOV ORDERED DEPORTED JUNE 3, 2009 JENNIFER MOREAU Burnaby Now

V

ancouver’s First Lutheran Church held a fourth anniversary dinner for Burnaby resident and former KGB agent Mikhail Lennikov June 1. June 2 marked four years that Lennikov has been living in church sanctuary at the East Side church on Wales Street. Lennikov was ordered deported on June 3, 2009 because of his history with the KGB, the former Soviet secret service, althoughhe’sarguedheposesnothreattoCanadian security. Lennikov’s wife and son have been allowed to stay in the country on humanitarian and compassionate grounds and have also been living in the church. Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian has been an outspoken supporter of Lennikov, but Julian couldn’t attend the dinner this year. “It’s a sad moment, when you think what the family’s going through,” he said. In 2009, Julian obtained thousands of pages of government files on Lennikov. “There’s nothing in his files which indicates there’s any reason for the (immigration) minister to deny on

Lennikov, a former KGB agent and Burnaby resident, has been living in church sanctuary for four years avoiding deportation. compassionate and humanitarian grounds for the Lennikov family to stay in Canada,” Julian said. “The family’s been through a lot. Mr. Lennikov has spent years in what is, in effect, a prison. He’s not allowed to leave the church grounds, he has not left the church grounds, he hasn’t really been out in the sunlight in years. I think it’s just another example of what’s been a really wrong-headed

immigration policy by this government.” Julian said his constituents feel the same. “There is overwhelming support for the Lennikovs in our community, in Burnaby and New Westminster, and I regularly get emails from folks who want the government to simply allow them to stay together — to allow them to stay and allow Mr. Lennikov to leave the church and walk out a free man,” he said.

The practice of sanctuary as a last resort for asylum seekers has existed for centuries, but the right to religious refuge is not enshrined in Canadian law. According to the Canadian Border Services Agency, Lennikov is still subject to a removal order. “He is in violation of Canada’s immigration law and is in Canada illegally,” wrote CBSA communication advisor Faith St. John in an email. “There are no places in Canada where individuals can retreat and be immune from Canadian law.” St. John said sanctuary cases undermine the integrity of Canada’s immigration program and CBSA officers can still enter, or seek a warrant to enter, any building in which a person who is evading removal may be staying. “However, the CBSA strives to ensure that the appropriate balance is struck between our obligation to enforce immigration laws in a fair, balanced and consistent manner, while mitigating risks to individuals, officers, and the general public,” she added. “Whenever possible if the individual is not an immediate risk to the community, the CBSA prefers to negotiate with those individuals who have retreated to a place of worship to avoid removal from Canada and to have them voluntarily exit the place of worship for arrest by CBSA or other law enforcement agencies.” Neither the pastor nor Lennikov responded to requests for an interview. jmoreau@burnabynow.com twitter.com/JenniferMoreau

Trusteewantssocialmediacoursesinschools CLASS NOTES

with Cheryl Rossi Vancouver students should learn social media literacy in a systematic way, says Vision Vancouver school trustee Mike Lombardi. Lombardi hopes to convince the Vancouver School Board to call upon the new Minister of Education, expected to be announced June 7, to make sure social media curriculum is added to information technology courses. Lombardi declared this intention to the Courier following the release of the school board’s draft policy on social media that was discussed by the board’s Education and Student Services committee, which Lombardi is a member of, May 28. The policy advises district staff not to request or accept any students or minor as friends on social networking sites nor “interact with students or minors on social networking sites for purposes not related to the delivery of the student’s educational program.” Lombardi, a self-described “prolific user” of social media, believes teachers could set up a private Facebook page for specific educationrelated purposes and then take the page down when the reason for it ends. Some school staff are friends with minors who aren’t their students, including friends of their children or relatives, so the policy may need to be made specific to befriending students online, or school board administrators who will enforce the final policy will have to use common sense. Lombardi said the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the Ministry of Education Teachers Regulation Branch advise against befriending students on Facebook.

The draft policy also recommends that school staff monitor the content they or others post to their social media accounts. “We’re going to have to be realistic about that,” Lombardi said. “How much time do you expect your employee to spend monitoring their Facebook page.” Culinary teacher Shirley Wong permitted students to set up a Facebook page for her when they told her they no longer check email but check Facebook. “I didn’t like what I was seeing,” said Wong, who deleted her account and reverted to emailing students from her school board address. Wong also texts select students about schoolrelated subjects, particularly their work placements and on field trips. She talks to them at the start of the year about appropriate times to text and appropriate topics. The draft policy advises school staff not to exchange personal phone numbers with students. “The school board doesn’t provide us all with cellphones,” Wong said. The draft policy advises school staff not to criticize district employees or the school district on online sites. “Teachers had some good points about making sure we don’t violate their charter rights,” Lombardi said. “One of the suggestions in there [is] that you shouldn’t criticize your school district… That [recommendation to teachers is] totally inappropriate and that will never see the light of day in the final policy.” Staff also released a draft acceptable use of technology policy and regulations for feedback last week. Senior management says both policies will need to be updated annually. The policies will go before the committee again June 27, with a recommendation to the board. For more information, search for “social media policy” at vsb.bc.ca. Input can be emailed to mike.lombardi@vsb.bc.ca or any other trustee. crossi@vancourier.com twitter.com/Cheryl_Rossi

Liberals’ pipeline stance peculiar form of genius

A

s someone who has done a lot of hard work poking fun at B.C.’s opaque, conditional non-position on Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline, it’s time to re-assess. The idea of setting five elastic, unquantifiable conditions on any new heavy oil pipeline may actually be the stuff of genius. There were times over the past year where the B.C. Liberals’ pipeline process looked a lot like the cardinal rules of the Legislature Press Gallery: Studied indifference, benign neglect and plausible deniability. They didn’t bother registering as a government participant. They didn’t bother to submit any evidence. And they took a position that seemed to mean something different to everyone who read it. Pipelines have to meet “world-class” safety standards, without anyone knowing what that means. They have to respect First Nations rights, something that’s been argued in court for generations, with still no clear word on what that means. And B.C. has to get a “fair share,” without any inkling of how much that is, exactly. But there’s nothing like winning an election to give an air of vindication. So to the extent the election was about pipelines, the B.C. Liberals’ stance on Northern Gateway worked perfectly. It allowed them to sit on the sidelines for a while, then send in former attorney general Geoff Plant and a team of other lawyers for a few key plays. Then they enjoyed watching NDP Leader Adrian Dix boot the Kinder Morgan situation. And now they have emerged as a brand-new government that’s open for business when it comes to pipelines, while at the same time utterly devoted to protecting northern wilderness from the prospect of a pipeline catastrophe. B.C.’s final argument to the federal panel reviewing the project continues the minuet. Plant and his team eviscerate the Northern Gateway proposal in remarkably tough language. But at the same time, Environment Minister Terry Lake stresses that is not a rejection of oil pipelines. “‘Trust me’ is not good enough,” the B.C. submission states, summing up how preliminary and sketchy Northern Gateway’s contingency plans are. It cites Enbridge’s record of 11 sizable spills over the past 10 years and dwells at great length on the infamous million-gallon Kalamazoo spill just three years ago. A U.S. investigation lambasted the company for its staggering incompetence in continuing to send surges of heavy oil through the line while all the spill alarms were going off. Clean-up costs is in the $700 million range at present. And that was in an easily accessible part of the line. B.C.’s brief prompts readers to imagine the same thing happening in the rugged upper Kitimat Valley, inaccessible by road, where they get nine metres of snow in the winter. The company pledged to develop prompt response plans for any spill. But B.C.’s argument notes “that doing nothing is a possible response.” One company expert said “spill response” could include “monitoring and allowing natural attenuation to occur.” Overall, B.C. says on spill response the company is proposing “a plan for developing plans.” It is aiming for a six- to 12-hour response time for any spill. But B.C. notes that is only for arriving on site. Actually starting work on a spill could take a number of days. “It is not clear what Northern Gateway means by ‘response,’ when doing nothing is a possible response, and when spill response may consist of monitoring and allowing natural attenuation to occur,” said B.C.’s somewhat sardonic argument. “If doing nothing, or monitoring constitute responses, it goes without saying that Northern Gateway could ‘respond’ to each spill.” B.C. even questions the cost-benefit of the project. It’s based on a $2-a-barrel “Asian uplift.” But the full costs haven’t been figured, says B.C. And while potential government revenues have been estimated, no costs to government are included.There was another long analysis earlier that hits the same notes. It was written and signed by every member of the B.C. NDP caucus. So the B.C. Liberals’ shuffled the file for a while, then adopted the same stance as their opponents, and still maintain they’re not opposed to oil pipelines. But it’s not to be laughed at. It’s a peculiar form of genius. lleyne@timescolonist.com

Swearing by life’s lessons

Y

ou teach your kids every day, every minute of your life. You don’t need to have a chalkboard (or an iPad) in front of them — the lessons most likely to stick longest and hardest are the things you say and do. Some of the lessons learned will be good. Some will be bad. Many will be relatively benign — just sort of behavioural stuff. Many of the lessons you teach by example will stick with them for life, especially the lessons you aren’t intending to teach. For instance, I rarely heard my dad swear. In fact, I only ever heard the “f” word from him once. I was deep in my teens, and two of my brothers and I had committed a negligence that cost one of our dogs his life. Even then, the word came out muffled and strained — it was plain that he had tried to stop it, even as it was leaving the end of his tongue. Interestingly, I can trace my concern for animal welfare to that moment. It wasn’t that I didn’t care before, but his use of “that” word impressed on me like nothing else how much value my father placed on life — all life — and he has always been a man of such integrity and respect that the value was imputed into me with full force that very instant. To this day, when I see an animal suffering, I am brought back to that moment of my dad’s stern rebuke and I curse under my breath. There was another word that Dad often expostulated, as part of a rather curt phrase, when suffering a sharp pain such as bashing a finger or stubbing a toe. I won’t repeat the word here, because although it was even then the mildest of swear words and I seriously doubt that anyone these days would so much as blink an eye at it, when my dad said it — you can trust me on this — it was a swear word. If you really want to know what that curt phrase is, all you have to do is be near me when I bash a finger or stub a toe. It’s involuntary. It comes out instantly and automatically. It’s one of those relatively benign life lessons that has been passed along from father to son, inadvertently, I’m sure. If your kids are in the room while you’re reading this newspaper — or a magazine or a book or even the back of a cereal box — you can be sure that, somewhere in the nether cracks and crannies of their brains, they are taking notes. If they see you reading often, whether they are toddlers or preteens, or even rebellious teenagers, you can be sure that they will become lifelong readers. That’s one of the good life lessons that you can pass along, just by being who you are. Here’s another good one: if you respect people who deserve respect, you’ll find that your kids will almost certainly grow up respectful. And respected. On the other hand, if you lie to the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker, whether it’s to save/steal a penny or to get out of a social engagement with friends. that is not one of the good life lessons that your example will inculcate in your children: they will travel throughout the pathways of their lives with a bit of the liar and sneak in them. Of course, you will call them “little white lies” — making them only worse. And here’s one I see almost every day: if you drive like an idiot, speeding, cutting from lane to lane, sneaking through amber (or red!) lights, blowing stop signs, uttering profanities at the old bat who drives too slow, or giving the finger to the stupid fool who makes a small error (or who is driving the way you are), your kids will grow up driving like idiots - just like you. If they grow up at all. editor@langleyadvance.com

CLIMATE KID DESERVES TO BE HEARD

To the editor: Re: “Climate kids upset over cancelled coal forum,” May 29. I was part of a delegation of representatives from all municipalities along the coal train route from White Rock to Surrey and those affected by the Surrey Fraser Dock Facility and resultant barge traffic from New Westminster to Texada Island last Thursday at the Port Metro Vancouver (PMV) offices. We were there to present a 400-plus signed petition, letters and a request for a meeting on behalf of New Westminster’s Quayside Community Board. Of all the posters, placards, speeches and letters at Canada Place, the most impressive presentation came from high school student Sam Harrison. He and 20 others of his generation had convinced PMV to allow them to make a presentation as to the effects they saw in allowing Surrey Fraser Docks to proceed to facilitate U.S. coal exports via Canada. The port reneged on the promised meeting. I am relying on the Courier article but, if true, the hypocrisy demonstrated by that action not only undermines the faith youth should have in their “right to be heard” but is also demonstrative of how the Surrey Fraser Docks so-called “public consultation” is really a “public relations” exercise — a one-sided sham sanctioned by the PMV as they ink their rubber stamp. Our local politicians in New Westminster are to be lauded for their “Town Hall” meeting this week with all parties invited to share their views on the issue, even though Surrey Fraser Docks refused to have one of its “open houses” in New Westminster. All sides need to be heard. On the assumption that Metro Vancouver has a similar format June 14, I hope Sam and his cohorts

will sign up, attend and finally make their presentation, despite their earlier shoddy treatment by PMV. By doing so, perhaps we can begin to restore the faith of his generation in public institutions and due process and nudge PMV to do the same. Ted Eddy, New Westminster

CHURCH WISE TO INCLUDE ARTISTIC ASPECT OF THEATRE

To the editor: Re: “Church buying former Ford Theatre,” May 10. There used to be a time when things were clear: A church looked liked a church, and a theatre looked like a theatre, both inside and outside. Once you entered either building, you knew where you were. Now, however, like many other things, the difference between a church and a theatre has become blurred: Churches seem to be more like theatres, and theatres, apparently, can become churches. I hope people don’t automatically assume that Westside Church will stop any further productions other than its own if it purchases the Centre For Performing Arts. I have some reason to expect they will show some sensitivity to the issue and allow other organizations to use the Centre. In times past, the relationship between evangelical Christianity and the Arts was not a very positive one. Recently, that has been changing: An example of that is with Pacific Theatre, which is a Christian theatre company that produces good plays for the general public. Similarly, I expect it would be in the best interest of Westside Church to maintain the artistic character of the Centre. If they decide not to, I hope they are prepared to face the possible consequences. Roland Derksen, Vancouver

LINGUAL DISCONTENT BREWING To the editor: Re: “Evolving English can be grating ‘on accident,’” May 29. I enjoyed Matthew Claxton’s column on the question of whether or when incorrect usage is simply part of the evolution of language. I lean toward the conservative side in these matters, and am irritated by expressions such as the inane “I could care less,” which means the opposite of what its users intend to say (that they couldn’t care less). Perhaps like Mr. Claxton I’m resistant to changes in the language, but the process is fascinating and amusing to observe in any case. Carl Rosenberg, Vancouver

To the editor,

•••

I was drawn to offer my own perspective on Mr. Claxton’s column. He offers two different types of situations: local idiom, local pronunciation and outright error. Whether someone says pop or soda, couch or chesterfield, skim or non-fat milk is largely regional. These run the gamut from A to Z (or is that zed?) You pick the one you like. Pronunciation often seems random, although there is usually some method hiding in the madness. Clique and niche are being as Anglicized as Notre Dame (no-ter dame) and Agincourt (Eh-gin-court) and I don’t think we can stem that tidal wave. I do agree with the frustration over the accepted use of errors. I often tell my students that yesterday’s errors are today’s habits and tomorrow’s rules. So “on accident” may eventually get promoted to the position of good in place of well, it’s me and ain’t. John Aveline, Vancouver

SOCIAL MEDIA COURIER STORY: “Oakridge development plan under the microscope,” May 30. Bea Westlake: I grew up in Vancouver, it used to be beautiful, now it is beginning to look like New York! John Davies: Vancouver is turning into hell because of rampant development. Carey Murphy: The current Oakridge plan 2007 is up to 24 storeys. The application coming in at up to 45 storeys far exceeds. Several towers over 24. Shows city planning is a farce. Why bother getting citizens and staff involved in creating extensive and comprehensive plans for our communities if they’re of no value? Community visions created under “city plan” etc are supposed to give certainty to area residents and planners as to future direction over 20 years.

GRANVILLE ISLAND The Public Market on Granville Island has long been known as Vancouver’s original go-to place for fresh ingredients, vibrant stalls, wholesome ingredients and candy. So it’s fitting that as summer approaches and local farmers begin harvesting fresh fruits, vegetables and plants, the market spills outside to Triangle Square. The annual summer Farmers Market on Granville Island launches June 6, offering flowers for planting in beds and containers or ready-to-hang in baskets, as well as seasonal produce. In July, look for strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries and greens of every kind, while August will bring with it peaches, plums, apricots, corn on the cob and even more greens. The market runs every Thursday now through September from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

KITSILANO In recognition of World Elder Abuse Day, the Kitsilano Community Response Network, in partnership with Kits House, is hosting a community resource fair June 11 at St. Mark’s Church, 1805 Larch St. from 1:30

TIPS FOR KEEPING YOUR FAMILY PROTECTED THIS SUMMER From building castles in the sand, to biking around with friends, kids can hardly wait for those glorious summer months where each day is filled with a new adventure. To make sure your kids get the most out of their favourite season, and are not slowed down by a nasty sun burn, it’s important to incorporate proper sun protection into their everyday activities. Canadian dermatologist Dr. Julia Carroll recommends the following top tips to keep kids protected while staying active this summer: Teach proper application: There are four simple application steps to keep kids protected all summer long: 1. Apply early: It’s important to apply sunscreen at least 15 to 30 minutes before sun exposure. Put sunscreen on your kids each day before they get dressed to make it

A stroke is devastating. For many survivors, so is the recovery process after they leave the hospital. It can be frustrating and lonely.

If you’ve been affected by one and need help, contact SRABC today. SRABC is hosting a FREE June 8 education session at the Vancouver Public Library Conference Centre, 10:30am -2:30pm

part of their routine. 2. Apply enough: You should be using one ounce or 30mL of sunscreen – roughly the size of a golf ball – each time you apply. 3. Apply everywhere: Don’t forget ears, lips, shoulders and the nose. These areas are most susceptible to sun exposure. 4. Re-apply frequently: Be sure to re-apply one ounce of sunscreen every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating. Make it easy: Spray sunscreens are handy and easy to use – just spray and go! Look for a sunscreen that is gentle on skin, tear-free, and paediatrician tested. Lead by example: Remember that children imitate their parents, reapply sunscreen often to show how important sun protection is to your family. Tips courtesynewscanada.com.

Attention All Seniors

Do you have a history of falls? Are you interested in learning about your risk of falling?

Falls among seniors is a major health care issue. Approximately 1 in 3 older adults experience one or more falls per year. Although falls are commonly thought to be a consequence of physical problems, such as poor balance, research now suggests that brain function also plays a role in one’s risk of falling. University of BC researchers are inviting senior volunteers aged 70 to 80 years old to participate in a research study that aims to examine the effect of brain function on falls. To be eligible for this study, individuals must be: 1) Right Handed 2) Aged 70-80 years old 3) Willing to participate in one MRI scan For more information, please contact Michelle Munkacsy (Research Assistant) at 604-875-4111 Ext. 69056

DAIRY: milk it for all it’s worth June is dairy month, which makes it a great time to take a look at the dairy products your family is consuming. With more and more new dairy products added to store shelves every year, it can be difficult to understand the differences between brands – and which items best fit your family’s needs. To help simplify the information, Vancouver-

area dietician Gloria Tsang worked with her team of registered dieticians to analyze more than 85 yogurt products and 45 types of milk (dairy and non) and compiled them into a simple online database. “We found that milk and yogurt products vary widely in terms of protein, calcium, and use of artificial ingredients,” Tsang said.

“Our review tools allow people to do a quick search and sort before they shop, rather than reading all the labels in the store.” Items for consumers to watch for in milk and yogurt products include: Minimal calcium content: New smaller yogurt sizes may not offer the 15 per cent required to

qualify as a good source of calcium. And although most non-dairy beverages may be called “milk,” they are naturally low in calcium. Some, but not all, have been fortified, but check the label to be sure. Light/fat-free products: Most light yogurt brands use sucralose, but some use several different artificial sweeteners. Since

YOU CAN’T AFFORD NOT TO HEAR. Introducing an invisible* hearing aid you can afford

non-dairy milks are low in fat to begin with, light or fatfree versions save only 30 to 40 calories and use water and thickeners to dilute the calorie level. Unexpected ingredients: Yogurt for babies and kids should be plain unflavoured whole milk yogurt. Some brands offer this option, but they (and others) also offer

flavoured versions with two teaspoons of sugar per serving. Shockingly, many kids’ fruit-flavoured yogurts contain no real fruit! Gloria Tsang of Port Coquitlam, BC, founded HealthCastle.com in 1997 when her father was diagnosed with cancer. It is the largest online nutrition network run by dieticians.

• Physical activity keeps your joints active and is important for lifelong health, whether you are living with arthritis or not! • You’re helping the over 4.6 million Canadians – 1 in 6 people – who live with arthritis. • Funds you raise support innovative research projects here in Canada. • Funds you raise pay for education programs including free materials and access to events for people living with arthritis. • We want to see your moves in our MOVE IT dance contest. • You will help provide local programs and services, sharing information on living well with arthritis.

Insect Bites:

a quick treatment

Bites or stings from bees, wasps, hornets or black flies can be perilous for some. The most common affliction is from the mosquito. Symptoms of a mosquito bite are usually mild and transient. Use a topical anaesthetic or lotion to relieve the immediate discomfort and, if local irritation occurs, topical steroids can be applied to the skin to reduce the itching, redness and swelling. Oral antihistamines can also be effective in reducing the symptoms of mosquito bites. The key thing is not to scratch. Scratching prolongs the inflammatory reaction.

Shaving

We’re all familiar with shaving, either with an electric device or a razor blade. Hair is sliced away close to the skin’s surface, and can either be felt or seen pretty quickly, depending on the location and speed of hair growth for each person.

Depilatories

Nair, Neet and similar lotions are chemical depilatories. They basically ‘melt’ the hair away. They can be irritating, because the same chemicals that remove the hair also start working on the skin. New hair will be visible fairly quickly, although sometimes not so quickly as after shaving.

DEADLINE FRIDAY

Tweezing

You’ve no doubt used a pair of tweezers to remove one hair at a time. Tweezing is great for cleaning up random hairs, but tedious-to-unrealistic when there are lots of hairs to remove. A well-lit magnifying mirror will help you find those random facial hairs (which show up all the more in the sunshine.)

Epilators

Summer means exposed skin – and for women it’s ‘hair removal time’

Epilating devices look like electric razors, but they do not cut hair — they pull it out. Designs have changed over the years, and many people who use current epilating devices say they are not as painful to use as the first versions. Hair growth reoccurs in different stages, which makes it seem effective.

Waxing

Estheticians use a couple of different types of wax to remove hair from the body. Both are applied with disposable sticks of varying sizes, depending on the detail required in the area being waxed – these are comprised of hard wax or soft wax (also called strip wax.)

• Predictability. Ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions.

Sugaring

Sugaring is sometimes regarded as a natural hair removal method. Sugar can be used to remove hair in a couple of different ways, and both formulas for sugar wax are concocted with water, lemon and sugar. For one method, the solution is fairly thin, the same consistency as strip wax.

Threading

Threading is a centuries-old technique that uses a strand of knotted cotton thread to grab hairs and pull them out - think of it as a very fast, mass production version of tweezing that’s most often used for eyebrows and other facial areas. Threading does not generally cause trauma to the skin.

Lasers

The benefits of laser hair removal, according to WebMD, are that laser technology is very useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas, including: • Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. • Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal Laser hair removal is more than just ‘’zapping’’ unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure. If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.

Local Resource The Laser and Light Hair Removal Clinic at VGH is located in the Lions Laser Skin Centre. A free consultation determines your skin type and suitability for hair removal. For further info., call 604875-4986. The Skin Care Centre is at 835 West 10th Ave.; web: skincarecentre.ca.

Invasive buttercup difficult to love

EUROPEAN WEED CAN KILL GRAZING ANIMALS, DEPLETE SOIL OF NUTRIENTS

ANNE MARRISON

E

urope has contributed many weeds to Canada that challenge the patience and the joints of gardeners — buttercups, for instance. At this time of year, Ranunculus repens, the creeping buttercup, especially comes to mind. Aside from small, bright yellow flowers, it’s a difficult plant to love.

It creeps with long runners down pots, across concrete and over garden edges. When it finds soil creeping buttercup stretches up to 60 centimetres and seeds all over. The Field Buttercup (Ranunculus acris) looks similar but bigger. This one reaches one metre tall. Both can kill incautious grazing animals and are reputed to rob the soil of potassium and poison nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Both also turn into a thick, densely rooted mat if allowed to mature. When removing them at that stage, it’s useful to probe the rootballs carefully because small spring bulbs easily hide within those root masses. When the area is cleared, millions of weed seeds will have been liberated. That’s why it’s useful after removing weeds from flower beds to mulch immediately with com-

posted bark, mushroom manure or commercial compost. It won’t smother weeds forever but will give you some weed-free months, or even a year or two. A very long-neglected buttercup patch needs tougher handling. It may be necessary to move out any precious plants and cover the area with black plastic for a year or so. Buttercups love moisture and light. Dryness and dark is fatal to them. The themes of moisture and greedy feeding habits run through many members of the buttercup (Ranunculus) family. These include thalictrum, clematis, anemones, aquilegias, delphiniums, hellebores, delphiniums, celandines and aconitum. Many are extremely poisonous. Hellebore seed, for instance, can burn skin. But many have stunningly beautiful flowers and, like butter-

cups, an aptitude for survival. Once you know that something is basically a buttercup, it’s easier to treat it in ways that make it happy — and also clue into what bad habits it might have. For instance, aquilegias, hellebores and celandines are all spreaders and seeders. All love rich feeding and (although none of them will grow in a swamp) all respond very well to moist soil. Clematis also love rich feeding and moisture and though it doesn’t spread as an individual plant, it seeds so enthusiastically that some types have a reputation for invasiveness. Noticing the kind of root and the type of leaf gives you even more information about variations. For instance, bulbs and fat tuberous roots are a storage place for food. Plants with this type of root can be forgiving after disturbance because they

As semi-regular watchers of CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada, we’ve been fixated on the girth of commentator P.J. Stock’s tie for some time. But that’s about to change, or at least get a lot more fabulous. According to a recent press release, HNC’s broadcast team will show off “a brand new look with the help of some of Canada’s most talented fashion designers… in a special feature dubbed Fashion Night in Canada on Friday, June 7.” Thus Ron MacLean will be styled by Toronto’s Christopher Bates, “an intrepid Canadian menswear designer achieving a meteoric rise in the fashion industry.” P.J. Stock will be teamed with Philip Sparks, who references “vintage details and classic tailoring paired with contemporary sensibility” (please let that mean a bowler hat). Elliotte Friedman will be transformed by Calgary-based KaaDiki, led by Haithem Elkadiki, who mixes “traditional men’s wear construction techniques with contemporary silhouettes that have a well-proportioned and fashionable appearance” (read: plumper dudes like Friedman). Glenn Healy will go Euro-centric with Farley Chatto. Kevin Weekes goes the bespoke route with Marlon Durrant. And Andi Petrillo will relinquish herself to Caitlin Power’s self-titled brand that “compels women to see themselves in a different light — to own their confidence and feel their power.” Did someone say, pant suit? Of course, glaringly missing from this list is Don Cherry, who probably would never agree to give up his famously loud jackets, and Kelly Hrudey, who is already one stylish mo-fo and likely arranged the whole fashion love-in in the first place to reverse the adverse effect his frumpy colleagues were having on his swagger.

Convoluted comedy crashes REVIEWER FAILS TO FIND HUMOUR IN ‘HILARIOUS’ AND ‘HARROWING’ RAMIFICATIONS OF A PARTICULAR CRASH

At GO Studios (112 East Third Ave.) until June 15 Tickets: ramifications. brownpapertickets.com

W

hy playwright Kris Elgstrand thought the aftermath of the vehicular death of a teenager would be fodder for comedy is anybody’s guess. But apparently the opening night crowd laughed themselves silly. The play opens with Hollywood starlet Aimee (Lara Gilchrist) sneaking into the home of Paul (Brad Dryborough), Joyce (Lori Triolo) and their 15-yearold daughter Jodi (Maxine Chadburn). Three years ago Aimee hit and killed Jennifer, the couple’s other teenager who was out at night walking down the middle of the road in her bare feet. There was an out-of-court settlement, but Aimee now wants Paul and Joyce’s forgiveness and she’s come to get it. What she finds is a family in complete meltdown. Joyce, looking like a hag from hell, has gone completely around the bend and is medicated to the eyeballs. Rebellious, out-of-control Jodi is also using drugs and alcohol and she has lost all respect for her mother, repeatedly calling her a “crazy f*****g bitch.” Nice. Paul, the father, is the only sane one

left in the family. He goes off to work each day and returns home to this madhouse. But here’s the thing: Aimee is a drug and alcohol addicted, self-absorbed, not very bright flake. She’s pregnant, she tells Jodi, and when Jodi asks, “Whose is it?” Aimee, bright-eyed, answers, “Mine.” Duh. She can’t remember how much booze she’d imbibed or what drugs she’d taken the night of the accident but she remembers dragging Jennifer for a “a f*****g block.” Gilchrist gives it her best shot but there is absolutely nothing — and I mean nothing — to like in this character. Chadburn comes off better as an obscenity-spouting teenager. At least we can find a shred of sympathy for this kid whose family has fallen apart. It’s a toxic environment and she should get out of there but not with Aimee. The girl has lost her sister and no one seems to notice there’s still a teenager in the house who needs love and guidance. But the playwright makes it really difficult to sustain our connection when Jodi, after discovering Aimee in the house, asks enthusiastically, “Have you f****d a bunch of famous guys? I just wanna know who you’re f*****g.” When the answer isn’t forthcoming, Jodi suggests, “Let’s get wasted” and off they go, like old buddies, to get drunk. It really is a stretch to think that under these peculiar circumstances — the first time Jodi has met Aimee outside the courtroom — that this would be how it would go.

In Ramifications of a Particular Crash, a Hollywood starlet breaks into the house of a family whose teenage daughter she killed in a car accident. Zaniness ensues.

RAMIFICATIONS OF A PARTICULAR CRASH

A23

And did I mention the frequency of the “f” word? Eighty minutes of it is bo-ring. Triolo does her best — and, elsewhere, her best is often great — to make this look like a comedy. There’s lots of physicality in her performance; there’s even a scene in which her husband sits on her to keep her still. Arms and legs flailing, it could be funny — in some other play. Dryborough, at least, gets to play the only reasonable character on stage, and I can’t tell you what a relief it is. Directed by Martin Kinch, Ramifications of a Particular Crash is billed as “the hilariously harrowing story of what happens when ‘America’s Sweetheart’ Aimee Scott pays a surprise visit to the family of the teenaged girl she killed in a car accident three years earlier.” That should have been the tip-off right there: hilarious in combination with harrowing. Chalk and cheese. Developed by the Playwrights Theatre Centre and the Banff Playwrights Colony and presented by Raw Materials Co-op, Ramifications of a Particular Crash may tickle the funny bone of some but it missed mine by a mile.

the 10th anniversary festival that will animate homes and yards June 7 to 9. “It’s a very fun festival. We’ve done it a few times and it’s always been a great time,” said Boulanger, cofounder and co-director of Underground Circus. “For us [the best part is] being with the public and being part of such a wonderfully iconic Vancouver organization. They’ve created all sorts of weird little quirky things over the years and we love being part of that kind of stuff,” Boulanger said. “We are pretty much the top corporate circus company in town, which means most of time people don’t see our work. So it is fun to be able to say, ‘Hey look. We exist.’” Much of the aerial acrobatics in the grand finale show are set to music from B.C., including the crooning of Michael Buble, the folk music of Pied Pumkin and 1980s pop hits of Doug and the Slugs. “We’ll be showcasing a lot of our unique [acrobatic] apparatuses and it’s kind of fun to be doing that with the work of B.C. musicians,” Boulanger said. Underground Circus celebrated its own 10th anniversary this year. Boulanger and his wife, Ninon Parent, stud-

Underground Circus performs at the In the House Festival.

ied at the National Circus School in Montreal, toured with Cirque du Soleil for a couple of years and then decided to settle near Burnaby, where Boulanger grew up. Underground Circus’s shows include acrobatic feats, contortionists and often comedy, but its work differs from Cirque du Soleil in that it doesn’temployfantasycharacters like those that populated most of Cirque’s early shows,

according to Boulanger. “We’re almost always just people,” he said. “And I always tell people Cirque du Soleil is our competition,” he quipped. “So far they’re winning. Boulanger’s speciality at the moment is his chair-balancing act. He likes to stack chairs atop a table and stand on his hands up to 15 feet in the air. “I’ve adapted my chairs so they actually can get stacked up in weirder ways,” he said. Boulanger loves forms and shapes, and everyday sights such as a tangled wire on his desk often inspire the unique apparatuses used by Underground Circus’s acrobats. He taught himself to weld and then started fashioning different shapes such as the “Triceau,” three rings welded together, upon which two acrobats, stand, extend from and hang from one another. Festivalgoers who like making their own shapes will be able to do so at other In the House events. Tenth anniversary festivities include a “Shadow Jam” on Saturday where audience members craft shadow puppets with the Vancouver-based shadow puppet duo Mind of a Snail, improvise a story and pick up instruments to accompany the show. The milestone festival also includes a free community potluck on Lily Street Sunday morning complete with roving performers, square dancing and street hockey. Music, dance, magic, comedy and burlesque performances fill the festival weekend across 13 homes and yards. “I can’t really think of a better way to have a finale than with an amazing circus with a 20-foot tower that they can do aerials on,” said the festival’s artistic director Myriam Steinberg, who is excited the performance’s accompanying music will be B.C. themed. “They performed last year for the finale and were one of the biggest hits that we’ve had at the festival,” she added. “There’s a magic that’s attached to circus that you don’t really have in the same way with other acts. It’s kind of life the big fireworks at the end of the festival.” For more information, see inthehousefestival.com. crossi@vancourier.com twitter.com/Cheryl_Rossi To see Underground Circus’s gravity-defying acts, scan page with

SPORT SHORTS KITS RISES FROM 14TH TO THIRD AT B.C. SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIPS The Kitsilano Blue Demons ran roughshod over their competition in the group stage of the AAA senior girls soccer provincials. The Demons were lifted from a No. 14 rank to a third-place overtime finish for the school’s best ever showing at the tournament. Lumped in the proverbial “group of death,” Kitsilano tied the Okanagan champions from Kelowna 2-2, showed up perennial powerhouse and top-five ranked Handsworth 3-1 and then dispatched the defending champions from Surrey’s Panorama Ridge 2-1 OliviaRuygrokandSydneyJenningsbothnettedtwogoals in the opening round robin. “Our first game against Kelowna was a tough game that we were fortunate to score late to tie,” said Kitsilano head coach Dave Sabourin. Goals came from Ruygrok and Catriana Mackinnon, a Grade 10 student Sabourin singled out as the young future of the senior team. Sophie Burgoyne, Huntley Bain and Jennings scored against Handsworth. Kitsilano needed a win over the 2012 B.C. champions to secure a berth in the semi-finals. “We fell behind 1-0 and needed a second-half rally,” said Sabourin. They got the lift they needed from Jennings and Ruygrok and ended Panorama Ridge’s season with a 2-1 win. With Kitsilano, Kelowna advanced to the next round. The Demons met Oak Bay in the semi-final on May 31 at Inter River Parks in North Vancouver but were spent from three hard games, said Sabourin. “We gave up an early goal and ran out of gas. The beat us 2-0 and we never really looked dangerous.” Relegated to the consolation side of the draw, Kitsilano looked to better its best showing of fourth place. The coach sent his Grade 8 and 9 call-ups onto the pitch for the bronze-place medal game against Charles Best secondary from Coquitlam. Although physically outmatched by the more mature players, the young squad maintained a scoreless draw until halftime. The double goose eggs stood until the end of the game, forcing extra time. Sabourin moved Mackinnon up to the front line and the Grade 10 talent found the back of the net in the second overtime to give Kitsilano a 1-0 win. Sabourin singled out Mackinnon for her contributions. “Catriana was definitely our top player in the tournament,” he said, noting the team depth is bolstered by many young recruits. “We have high expectations for the next couple of years,” he said. “We are losing several Grade 12s, but the school has many girls that are eager to fill their boots.” Vancouver’s second team at provincials, the Churchill Bulldogs went 1-2 in the group stage, blanking Mt. Baker 3-0 and losing 4-0 to South Delta and 1-2 to the eventual champions from Argyle. — Megan Stewart

T here is no asterisk beside Asianna Covington’s name where it appears in the results for the 2013 track and field provincial championships, held May 31 to June 1 at McLeod Athletic Park in Langley. But in the discus throw, the Grade 12 powerhouse from Little Flower Academy deserves the mark of distinction. On her sixth and final throw at the 47th annual meet, Covington’s 48.20 metres broke a 42-year-old record. The distance of her throws grew with each attempt, starting at 38.32m and increasing by nearly 10 metres to better the record set in 1971. Covington also won gold in the hammer throw (53.83m) and silver in the shot put (12.83m). Her 28 individual points led LFA to first overall in the girls competition with an overall 54 points, two better than Walnut Grove and Oak Bay, who tied for second with 52 points. The championship was the first for Little Flower Academy, a Catholic girls private school in Shaughnessy. Also for LFA, the multi-talented Jessica Hansen, a Grade 10 student who already has the eye of the national basketball program, won gold in the senior high jump (1.65m) and bronze in the 400m hurdles (one minute, 5.99 seconds). St. Thomas More topped the boys

overall rankings with 46 points. Vancouver College finished tied for sixth with 27 points, followed by St. George’s with 19 and Lord Byng with 13. Oak Bay from Victoria won the combined event with 93 points. LFA finished fifth overall, followed by Vancouver College at 15th, Point Grey at 20th and Killarney at 24th. The Vancouver city champions from Lord Byng finished tied for 41st. Little Flower had the best-ever team result in the history of the school, said coach Marthy Merkt-Caprile. “I couldn’t be any more proud of these girls,” she said, noting her 17 provincial competitors are backed up by a team of 70 athletes. “I know we’ve got quite a few big stars but at the same time, we have a big team who are incredible.” David Thompson hurdler Jackson Cheung was a bronze medalist in the senior boys 110m hurdles with a time of 15.38 seconds. His best result came in the preliminary heat and Jackson’s 14.96 time in the preliminary heat was tied with the winner from New Westminster. Point Grey’s Diana Voloshin came second in the senior girls long jump. Her 5.45m edged the third-place finisher from Armstrong by nearly 20 cm, but no one came close to Georgia Ellenwood, the heptathlete champion from Langley, who jumped to gold with 5.94m.

Voloshin came seventh in the senior girls 100m hurdles, 1.19 seconds behind the winner and 0.9 seconds behind Sammy Lee who finished fourth for Little Flower Academy. Daniel Voloshin finished fourth in the senior boys long jump for Point Grey. His best 6.58 was three centimeters out of a bronze medal. The five-time city champion in the girls 100m dash, Sajeda Win finished fifth with a time of 12:59. Langley’s Ellenwood won in 12:36. Matthew So won silver in the boys 800m for St George’s in 1:54.35, and Lord Byng’s Max Trummer finished just over two seconds back to take fifth in 1:56.54. In the Grade 8 and 9 championships, Vancouver College cleaned up with 70 points, 17 ahead of the second-place finisher from Surrey. Little Flower came 20th with 19 points, Lord Byng followed at 22nd with 16 points and Van Tech rounded out the top 25 with 14 points. Hannah Johnston brought in the majority of the team points for Van Tech. The Grade 9 student won silver in the long jump and bronze in the 80m hurdles. David Thompson runner Megan Picken finished third in the junior girls 800m final, coming in at 3:16.49. mstewart@vancourier.com twitter.com/MHStewart

loodied in the championship clash against their foes from Shawnigan Lake, the St. George’s Saints fell inches short of at least forcing extra time and lost the AAA senior boys rugby championship 17-12. With the win June 1 at Rotary Stadium in Abbotsford, Shawnigan Lake Stags defended their fifth title, marking the 11th consecutive championship game to include either or both the Saints or Stags. The Saints had their own streak to uphold, but they

couldn’t turn 16 straight wins into a perfect season, one that included the New Zealand Shield as the best Lower Mainland team and a B.C. 7s championship, which they won over Shawnigan Lake. Head coach Mike Stiles said the game was one of centimetres and could have gone either way. “It was that close and that is what makes it so painful,” he said. The Stags opened scoring with a penalty kick and converted try to take a 10-0 lead at the half. Theodore Sauder answered for the Saints before the Stags scored twice to take a 17-5 lead. Ben Scher put five on the board for St. George’s to

close the gap to seven, and Hamish Lynde added a convert to put St. George’s down 17-12. With time running out, the Saints made a final push for the title to cap their winning season. “We were just a few centimetres away from the try line when Karsten Leitner was held just short,” said coach Stiles. “We were pressing hard but just ran out of time. Shawnigan did a good job of containing our attack by slowing down the ball at the breakdown and tripletackling, at times, our strong runners.” mstewart@vancourier.com twitter.com/MHStewart
