V valuable property in about the highest property assessment area in Vancouver. Let's make sure extensive public input as to what we want to be there.+ Granville Market/Island too

will be controlled by Port Metro Vancouver and will Mayor Gregor Robertson wrest control for Vancouver?+ FATE OF THE FERRY BUILDING GALLERY -- cloudyFacts, rumours, and inaccuracies swirling but at least it's been withdrawn from July's agenda and postponed to Sept.Time to do the research needed wrt its original form, what restoration exactly is needed,what options there are, and more importantly more clarification of the plans for thewaterfront. Two or three more homes are to be purchased and turned into green space.Maybe have a WG or cmte or task force to study the situation and get lots of publicinput -- then we're not fighting a series of battles over bits.

{Update: postponed to next year.}+ DUCKLINGSWell, our hearts all go out to the little ducklings and the person who tried to help them.An act of goodness and kindness -- the sort of ppl we want in Canada.....I was under the impression that drivers are guilty if they run into a car from behind --

they must be following too closely. Aren't you supposed to leave at least a car length between you and the next car for every 10mph?The woman's car was stopped.

BC Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Guichon {NB: In Canada, the first syllable of Lieutenant is pronounced LEFF.}

Personal life -- Guichon was born in Montreal, Quebec, in 1947, and raised on a farm near Hawkesbury, Ontario. She moved to British Columbia in 1972. Her first husband, Lawrence Guichon, was killed in a motorcycle accident near the family ranch in 2003. She and her current husband, Bruno Mailloux, maintain their private residence in the Nicola Valley.CareerPrior to Guichon's appointment as Lieutenant Governor, she owned and operated Gerard Guichon Ranch Limited in the Nicola Valley in the BC Interior. The Guichon family has ranched in the area since 1878, and Guichon's father-in-law was awarded the Order of Canada in 1974 for his leadership in Cattleman's Associations and his contribution to agriculture in Canada. Her four children now manage the ranch with a 700-head cow calf and 700 yearling operation. Guichon studied Holistic Management, a farming method which promotes sustainable management of livestock by emphasizing their natural habitat. Along with her late husband, commercial pilot Lawrence Guichon, she introduced Holistic Management to the ranchers of British Columbia.In addition to her ranching initiatives, Guichon is also involved in several organizations. She previously served on the local hospital board and Community Health Council, and is now on the Community Health Foundation Board. Prior to this, she has served as a 4-H Leader and started a recycling society in Merritt, BC with a neighbour. She has also served as a director for the Fraser Basin Council of BC, director of the Grasslands Conservation Council of BC, member of the NicolaWater Use Management planning committee and played the flute in the Nicola Valley Community Band... Prior to her appointment as Lieutenant Governor, Guichon served on the Provincial Task Force on Species at Risk and has just completed her two-year term as the president of the BC Cattlemen’s Association. She has also been a part of the Ranching Task Force for BC and the BC Agri-Food Trade Advisory Council.[2] [3]===============================================> NOTICE+ WVPD Mtg Tomorrow Date: 25 June, 2014 9:14:57 AM PDTfyi -- Thurs June 25 at 4:30pmG attends Police Bd mtgs and I asked him why there was no Police Bd mtg this month.

A B.C. Supreme Court judge has dismissed a petition from DWV and instead ruled in favour of homeowner Jie Liu in her battle to keep a carport, family room, and landscaping built before she bought the waterfront property in 2011.

The encroachments, on an undeveloped road allowance, were discovered many years before Liu bought the home at 2998 Park Lane, but legal action did not begin until last October, when the District asked the court to order demolition of all the structures.

Justice Glen Parrett has ruled that the District has not provided any paperwork related to the encroachments and has failed to prove they are unauthorized or unlawful.

He also notes that WV has issued tax notices for the disputed land to Liu and the home's previous owners, and those taxes have always been paid.

Parrett says not only are the home renovations and landscaping now covered by an easem*nt for the life of the buildings, West Vancouver must also pay Liu for her legal bills and court costs related to the dispute.--- Let's see what DWV's next step is......

=== MUDDLED EAST -- MORASS OF MURDER ===Scoreboard as of July 11: Gazans killed 175; Israelis 0A few Gazan rockets with no one killed and only a couple of injuriesHundreds of bomb/air strikes, 100s of homes ruined, ~ 1000 injured with 75% civilians (according to the UN)How irrational? strange? inhuman? for our PM to say Israel has the right to defend itself (I agree), without any consideration of the situation in Gaza -- no right to defend themselves?Let us work for reduced conflict.Chris Hedges and Juan Cole comment:> Chris Hedges | Israel Is Captive to Its 'Destructive Process' Chris Hedges, TruthDig "There will never be transports or extermination camps for the Palestinians, but amid increasing violence against Palestinians larger and larger numbers of them will die, in airstrikes, targeted assassinations and other armed attacks. Hunger and misery will expand."READ MOREIsrael Is Captive to Its 'Destructive Process' By Chris Hedges, TruthDig 14 July 14R aul Hilberg in his monumental work “The Destruction of the European Jews” chronicled a process of repression that at first was “relatively mild” but led, step by step, to the Holocaust. It started with legal discrimination and ended with mass murder. “The destructive process was a development that was begun with caution and ended without restraint,” Hilberg wrote.The Palestinians over the past few decades have endured a similar “destructive process”. They have gradually been stripped of basic civil liberties, robbed of assets including much of their land and often their homes, have suffered from mounting restrictions on their physical movements, been blocked from trading and business, especially the selling of produce, and found themselves increasingly impoverished and finally trapped behind walls and security fences erected around Gaza and the West Bank....... The last time Israel mounted a Gaza military assault as severe as the current series of attacks was in 2008, with Operation Cast Lead, which lasted from Dec. 27 of that year to Jan. 18, 2009. That attack saw 1,455 Palestinians killed, including 333 children. Roughly 5,000 more Palestinians were injured. A new major ground incursion, which would be designed to punish the Palestinians with even greater ferocity, would cause a far bigger death toll than Operation Cast Lead did. The cycle of escalating violence, this “destructive process,” as the history of the conflict has illustrated, would continue at an accelerating rate. ...... Israel is currently attacking a population of 1.8 million that has no army, no navy, no air force, no mechanized military units, no command and control and no heavy artillery. Israel pretends that this indiscriminate slaughter is a war. But only the most self-deluded supporter of Israel is fooled. The rockets fired at Israel by Hamas—which is committing a war crime by launching those missiles against the Israeli population—are not remotely comparable to the 1,000-pound iron fragmentation bombs that have been dropped in large numbers on crowded Palestinian neighborhoods; the forced removal of some 300,000 Palestinians from their homes; the more than 160 reported dead—the U.N. estimates that 77 percent of those killed in Gaza have been civilians; the destruction of the basic infrastructure; the growing food and water shortages; and the massing of military forces for a possible major ground assault. ...... $3.1 billion in military aid that the U.S. gives to Israel each year. It must organize to demand suspension of all free trade and other agreements... As long as these props remain, the Palestinians are doomed. If we fail to act we are complicit in the slaughter.

In the words of senior bureaucrat Craig Sutherland “we will organize a local public process to help concerned individuals better understand the woodlot process”. The Ministry has not indicated that it has an open mind to the question “Is Gambier Island, in the heart of the Howe Sound recreation area, an appropriate place for a new woodlot operation?” Instead FLNR is committed going forward with the woodlots, and says that the successful applicant will work with the public to create a good management plan....For continued updates on the woodlot issue, visit the Conservancy website (gambierc.ca),

COLIN TILNEY CELEBRATES LXXX JULY 257:30pm Roundhouse Community Centre 181 Roundhouse Mews ~~ Colin Tilney, harpsichord

Our opening concert this year is a rare recital by world-renowned keyboardist Colin Tilney. Turning 80 this year, Colin is a giant in early music: one of the first musicians to bring historically-informed performance to the general concertgoer's awareness, and one of the few still actively performing today. He'll perform Quinque by the South African composer Priaulx Rainier, composed in 1973, Bach's 6th English Suite, and elegant works by 18th-century French clavecinistes.A special presentation in collaboration with the Queer Arts Festival.

PURCHASE tickets for this concert. And check out the rest of our incredible Festival offerings.ABOUT EMVAll art exists on a continuum.

Early Music Vancouver (EMV) is an organization that reaches back into this history and casts beautifully preserved antiquities in fresh light. By preserving and presenting this music with the authentic instruments and traditions intended, Early Music Vancouver fosters an understanding and appreciation of these unique moments in time.

This evening I am speaking on behalf of the Ambleside Dundarave Ratepayers’ Assn to provide our input on the topic of Coach Houses.The ADRA mission statement has been a guide to members’ efforts. In particular to work to:

• ensure any changes/developments are in the best interests of current residents• maintain our park-like residential character through policies of sensitive, resident-supported growth• define and protect the character of our neighbourhoods and heritage assets

ADRA recognizes the need to offer diversity in housing. Our members live in single-family dwellings, duplexes, and apartments.Our concern is not with the concept of coach houses, but how they will be formally introduced into the community. I say formal, as there are a number of “coach houses” that have been built in West Vancouver, a few of which are located just blocks from M Hall.The bylaws before us tonight propose a District-wide rezoning where any property allowed a secondary suite would be zoned for a coach house. With the exception of Eagle Island and the British Properties, this covers a significant area of WV. Well over 1000 properties will be affected.The choice has been made NOT to define nbrhds or nbrhd character but rather to go for the District-wide rezoning. This, in itself, is a rather undemocratic approach. It is therefore imperative that neighbours potentially affected by this proposed bylaw be given the opportunity for substantial input.ADRA recommends that:

= 70% approval in writing be required from property owners within 100m of the applicant, whether one- or two-storey coach houses are being proposed.

= a one-storey coach house be approved by Planning= two-storey coach houses be approved by Council= basem*nts NOT BE INCLUDED in FAR (bulk housing)

{UPDATE: a correction will be made to this since EXCLUDED is what was meant}As well, ADRA agrees: o that a sec ste shall NOT be permitted in conjunction with a coach house; CONCERN with CNV -- 2010

introduction of Coach Houses and now moving to allowing both on a property, only a few years later. o the property owner must live on the property; no option for a property manager o with the non-strata designation, that there be no separate title for a CH o with the review of CH policy after one yearIn addn, - ADRA recommends that there be two designated, on-site parking spaces for CH over 400 sq. ft.

- ADRA would like to see the issue of taxation addressed, in particular: - Duplexes taxed on the basis of two residences on a single-family lot. - House with sec ste = two residences on a single-family lot - House with coach house = two residences on a single-family lot

Question: Each duplex unit pays a base sewage fee, drainage fee, waste collection fee, and recycling fee. A secondary suite does not. Would a coach house?

On behalf of ADRA, thank you for the opportunity to provide our input on the proposed Coach House bylaw and policy this evening In particular, I would like to thank Steve Mikicich who was always available to respond to our many emails, phone calls, and generally was just available.Mayor: thank you for your comments; I see Mr Mikicich taking notes [7:42]6.

I feel that it presents a rational approach which is based on good science.Page one of the Executive Summary under Need for Action refers to a [quotation] which states that one dollar in prevention can avoid $17 in later expenses. For knotweed, that seems like an underestimate where even the threat of damage to infrastructure might carry significant costs in the form of increased insurance premiums and more onerous terms for mortgage qualification.Changing bylaws is a key component of the strategy: 4.1.2 recommends amending the Pesticide Use Control Bylaw. This will be essential so that a wider range of herbicide application methods can be used. Simply put: stem injection alone will not do the job of controlling knotweed.4.1.5 recommends amending the Good Neighbour Bylaw to include knotweed species. Where there is a complaint The City of Vancouver is already requiring homeowners to control knotweed on their property. My last client there was given ten days to comply. We are, however, only one municipality and a major means of spread for knotweed and other invasive plants remains the transfer of contaminated soil and fill within and across municipal boundaries. 3.2.4 recommends working with Metro Vancouver to develop soil transfer and disposal regulations. This cannot happen soon enough.Restoration is often neglected following invasive plant control with the result that one invasive plant is replaced by another. Item 3.3.1 addresses this and here the Lighthouse Park Preservation Society provides a good practical example. Prior to extensive invasive plant removal at The Dale Park in Caulfeild, a plan will be in place to replant with native species to achieve a largely self-sustaining, low maintenance, attractive natural area which will also be an important step to returning salmon to Caulfeild Creek.Perhaps we can view invasive plants as presenting an opportunity as well as a crisis.Hugh Hamilton: go back tospread of Japanese knotweed and giant hogweed has become a threatour Ccl had the foresight to initiate a study of inv sp in WVI think we shd thank our Ccl for taking aggressive action to addressest'd a WG, carried out its mandate since est'd in 2012; Ccl est'd, they're going to be rewardedthe report culminates the decision that Ccl made at that timethe other thing I'd like to talk about, what the WG did -- we were led by the two co-chairs, a super job of organizing us, doing studies, organizing; Lori and Mikewhen it started getting to the end, had to do a lot of editingwork carried out by Lori -- design, feature, editing, decide what recomms, this was a hugeassisted by Corinne Amborxxx you will see tonight; thank mbrs and....Alexandra Mancini: [text supplied] President of the Lighthouse Park Preservation Society. On behalf of our Society I would like to congratulate and thank the Working Group on the development of this excellent andcomprehensive Invasive Plants Strategy.Our Society has been active in removing invasive plants in WV for over 16 years, starting first at Lighthouse Park and then expanding in 2008 to include 5 additional parks nearby. I would like to comment on Item 4.5 in the Strategy and its recommendations that relate to enhancing support for local stewardship groups and encouraging the creation of new groups.My first msg, is that while tackling invasive plants throughout our cmnty might seem like a daunting task, it can bedone! My second msg is that volunteers provide a valuable resource to get the job done. Our results are tangible. Since I started tracking our hours in 2008, our volunteers have put in almost 5000 hours of hands-on labour in six parks and that does not include the planning and organizing time. We are almost finished the intense initial clearing phase and moving into the maintenance phase for 5 of the 6 parks – Lighthouse Park, North Piccadilly Park, Trails, Klootchman, and a historic corner in Caulfeild Park. Our most ambitious project will begin this fall at the Dale Park and we estimate it will take over 2000 hours of volunteer labour over a period of about 3 years to restore that heavily invasive-plant-infested park to native vegetation. Our past projects have been successful and I am confident this one will be too! This model, working with volunteers works! It is pragmatic. We get things done. We are part of the solution here. Many groups like ours could be formed throughout the community. To make this happen, the Parks Dept needs resources to help new groups get started and to provide continued support. All work plans, including replanting plans, need to be developed in conjunction with Parks staff and ultimately approved by them. This takes time and current staff are maxed out.Just one additional FTE, just one, dedicated to working with stewardship groups would go a long way to

So, now we know why the two addl sp mtgs.There is considerable opposition to increasing the civic term from three years to FOUR YEARS. It appears therefore that Ccl pushed consideration of this critical important change to these two morning mtgs after the last scheduled ccl mtg before the summer break -- less likely public wd come/comment?The first time that had come to the UBCM, it failed. It passed at the last UBCM and the prov took steps to enable it.The more frequent elections, the more often the ppl have a say. WIth four years, the fear is that politicians and developers will do pretty well whatever they want for three years and then just have to be careful and listen to the public for the year before the election.More on this coming to you this fall.How did it happen?Can it be undone?UBCM is meeting in Sept.Stay tuned.

Canada's culture draws influences from its broad range of constituent nationalities, and policies that promote multiculturalism are constitutionally protected. Historically, Canada has been influenced by British, French, and aboriginal cultures and traditions. Through their language, art, and music, aboriginal peoples continue to influence the Cdn identity.

=== OCEANWATCH ===World Must Act Within 5 Years to Save Oceans From Pollution and Overfishing Agence France-Presse Excerpt(s): "The world's oceans need saving from pollution and overfishing, and an independent panel warned on Tuesday that urgent action was needed within five years."...The Global Ocean Commission said cutting down on single-use plastics products, restricting fishing on the high seas, and establishing binding regulations for offshore oil and gas exploration are key parts of the rescue plan.......“The ocean provides 50 per cent of our oxygen and fixes 25 per cent of global carbon emissions. Our food chain begins in that 70 per cent of the planet,” said Jose Maria Figueres, co-chair of the commission and a former president of Costa Rica.“Unless we turn the tide on ocean decline within five years, the international community should consider turning the high seas into an off-limits regeneration zone until its condition is restored.”The plan called for an immediate cap on government subsidies for fishing on the high seas, and an end to them within five years.......“About 60 per cent of such subsidies directly encourage unsustainable practices, and without them, high seas fisheries would not be financially viable,” said the report.The high seas are the waters that fall beyond the national jurisdiction of countries, making up 64 percent of the ocean’s total surface area and half the biological productivity of the entire ocean, according to the report.

=== FACTWATCH === Palestinians (including Hamas) and LikudSome Facts usually left out (not reported and often misrepresented and denied)They DO, re willing to, recognize Israel! Arafat recognized Israel in 1988, the 22-mbr Arab League did in 2002; Hamas sent a written offer in 2008. Note they even accepted the 1967 borders, wch reduced Palestine to 22% (from UN 45%). Kucinich researched the translation of wiping from the map and it was meant akin to the Soviet Union no longer appearing on a map. More background later.{They do not accept Israel as a theocratic state, a Jewish State (now being demanded by Netanyahu); Palestinian govt is secular. They agree with a shared Jerusalem as envisioned by the UN.}The highly respected (former) President Peres was replaced by Prez Rivlin on July 24. He does NOT agree with two states.LIKUD PLATFORM:a. “The Jordan river will be the permanent eastern border of the State of Israel.” b. “Jerusalem is the eternal, united capital of the State of Israel and only of Israel. The government will flatly reject Palestinian proposals to divide Jerusalem” [Palestinians have agreed to share Jerusalem with Israel as a joint capital.]c. “The Govt of Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan river.”d. “The Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza are the realization of Zionist values. Settlement of the land is a clear expression of the unassailable right of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel and constitutes an important asset in the defense of the vital interests of the State of Israel. The Likud will continue to strengthen and develop these communities and will prevent their uprooting.” === IRAQWATCH === Sunnis and Yazidis> Radical Sunnis (killing other Muslims as well; shades of Europes Catholic Protestant wars) "The radical Sunni Muslim organisation that conquered almost half of Iraq in a whirlwind week at the beginning of June has changed its name. Before, it was ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (the old Ottoman province that used to include Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel). But now it wishes to be known simply as the “Islamic State” – for there can only be one such state, and it should include everywhere that Muslims have ever ruled."> YAZIDIS+ from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yazidi#cite_note-Guardian2007-14The Yazidi are mostly a Kurdish-speaking ethnoreligious group who practice a syncretic religion that combines Shia and Sufi Islam with indigenous regional folk traditions. These traditions include elements shared with the mystic, Christian, and Mandaean communities of the Near East, as well as with more ancient Gnostic, Marcionite, Zoroastrian and early Mesopotamian religions....... According to the Yezidi calendar, April 2012 marked the beginning of their year 6,762 (thereby year 1 would have been in 4,750 BC in the Gregorian calendar)....... Yazidism is not an offshoot of another religion (such as Christianity or Islam), but shows influence from the many religions of the Middle East. Core Yazidi cosmology has a pre-Zoroastrian Iranian origin, but Yazidism also includes elements of ancient nature-worship, as well as influences from Christianity, Gnosticism, Zoroastrianism, Islam and Judaism. The heptad of angels are God's emanations which are formed of the light of God....... Yazidi society is hierarchical. The secular leader is a hereditary emir or prince, whereas a chief sheikh heads the religious hierarchy. The Yazidi are strictly endogamous; members of the three Yazidi castes, the murids, sheikhs and pirs, marry only within their group, marriage outside the caste is considered a sin punishable by death to restore lost honour.

50 WVM2014-12/13 • Ccl NOTES June 16, July 7 • AGENDAs/bits July 21/28/30 • Calendar to Aug 25th

The current hereditary emir of the world's Yazidi is Prince Tahseen Said.The current religious leader of the Yazidi, the Baba Sheikh, is Khurto Hajji Ismail.... Too much contact with non-Yazidis is also considered polluting. In the past, Yazidis avoided military service which would have led them to live among Muslims, and were forbidden to share such items as cups or razors with outsiders....... Yazidis refrain from wearing the colour blue (or possibly green...). The origins of this prohibition are unknown, but may either be because blue represents Noah's flood, or it was possibly the colour worn by a conquering king sometime in the past. Alternatively, the prohibition may arise from their veneration of the Peaco*ck Angel and an unwillingness to usurp His colour....... The tale of the Yazidis' origin found in the Black Book gives them a distinctive ancestry and expresses their feeling of difference from other races. Before the roles of the sexes were determined, Adam and Eve quarreled about which of them provided the creative element in the begetting of children. Each stored their seed in a jar which was then sealed. When Eve's was opened it was full of insects and other unpleasant creatures, but inside Adam's jar was a beautiful boychild. This lovely child, known as son of Jar grew up to marry a houri and became the ancestor of the Yazidis. Therefore, the Yazidi are regarded as descending from Adam alone, while other humans are descendants of both Adam and Eve.[55]+ http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/who-are-the-yazidis-9662457.html...The Yazidis are a mainly Kurdish-speaking religious group who for centuries have lived in the northern mountains of Iraq....The Yazidi religion is a minority religion, and is a closed set: it is not possible for a person to convert to the religion; a person must be born into it....... In truth, the ancient Yazidi religion has elements of both Christianity and Islam at its roots, while it is also linked to one of the world’s oldest monotheistic – the belief in one god – religions, called Zoroastrianism.The Yazidis believe in one god, though they worship seven other “angels” or “spirits”, the most important of which is Malak Taus, or Tausi Melek, whom Yazidis worship five times a day.This figure is said to be the Yazidi god’s favourite, and is supposed to act as a mediator between god and man. The figure’s name is also known in Arabic as “Shaytan”, meaning devil, supposedly because of the closeness of the pronunciation of Malak Taus’s name in Arabic.=== DISAPPEARING CHRISTIANS === ...There were still about 60,000 Christians in Mosul when the United States and its sidekicks invaded Iraq eleven years ago. By last year, it was down to 30,000. Only two months after the arrival of the ISIS extremists, there are none. Most have fled to Kurdistan with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. They are not going back, and if they can, they will leave the Middle East entirely. What has changed? For many centuries, the Christian minority of Arabs lived in relative peace and prosperity under Muslim rule. In the early 20th century, they were in the forefront of the nationalist and literary renaissance in the Arab world. But in the past decade, about a quarter of the Arab world’s 12 million Christians have emigrated, and the flow is increasing every year...

=== BOOKWATCH === Jane Austen and BC Books+ Many authors claim to never read reviews. "And then there's Jane Austen.

All the books are new releases by aboriginal authors, featuring fiction, science, politics, and romance.


=== LANGUAGEWATCH === Gaza and the language of modern warSteven Poole in The Guardian, Friday 8 August 2014 14.30 BST investigates

the political and misleading use of such terms as 'human shields' and 'tragedy' http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/aug/08/gaza-israel-language-modern-war-steven-poole

=== ENGLISHWATCH === British phrasesNo one can be as calculatedly rude as the British, which amazes Americans, who do not understand studied insult and can only offer abuse as a substitute. Paul Gallico, quoted in The New York Times (Jan. 14, 1962)I regard England as my wife and America as my mistress. Cedric Hardwicke, quoted in Cleveland Amory & Eal

Blackwell, Celebrity Register: An Irreverent Compendium (1963)We have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language. Oscar Wilde, in The

Canterbury Ghost (1887)QUOTE NOTE: This is the way the quotation is typically presented, but it originally appeared in the narrator’s description of Mrs. Otis, the American-born wife of Hiram B. Chase, an American Minister who purchased Canterville Chase, an English property reputed to be haunted. The full passage is: “Indeed, in many respects, she was quite English, and was an excellent example of the fact that we have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language.” A similar observation (“England and America are two countries separated by the same language”) was attributed without citation to George Bernard Shaw in a Reader’s Digest issue (Nov. 1942), but there is no evidence that Shaw ever wrote or said such a thing.

The morning includes JJ Bean coffee and a muffin, a bag of JJ Bean coffee to take home, and a coffee tasting and talk about the history of JJ Bean and their newest space led by founder and owner John Neate. John Atkin will then lead a walk in the West End that starts with the history of Maxine’s.Maxine's Beauty School has a colourful and storied history. Excerpt from the Vancouver Sun (December 2009):

"The building's original owner Madame Maxine ran a beauty school and boarding house for young women. But legend has it when times got tough in the Great Depression the lower floor was converted to a brothel.Even taller tales of secret tunnels have circulated for decades. One tunnel connected Maxine's with English Bay, an exit used by rum-runners who shipped hooch to the U.S. during the Prohibition years.According to the book The Unknown City, a second tunnel connected the brothel with nearby Rogers Mansion (now the Macaroni Grill) to allow Rogers Sugar magnate B.T. Rogers private access to his favourite girls. That Rogers died in 1918, years before the Depression and the bawdy house conversion has done little to quash the legend. Mrs. Rogers lived at Rogers Mansion until 1935, but no one has suggested that she used the tunnel to Maxine's."

=== MAIKU === 2014 July 1On Canada Day

let's commit to making it better and better

[from 11C Notice] ~~~ EMAIL RECEIVED:Forget Rednecks...Here is what Jeff Foxworthy had to say about Canadians; during a recent appearance at Caesar's in Windsor:

If someone in a Home Depot storeOffers you assistance and they don't work there,

You may live in Canada. If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time,

You may live in Canada. If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation With someone who dialled a wrong number,

You may live in Canada. If 'Vacation' means going anywhere

South of Detroit for the weekend, You may live in Canada.

If you measure distance in hours, You may live in Canada.

If you know several people Who have hit a deer more than once,

You may live in Canada.If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C'

In the same day and back again,You may live in Canada.

If you can drive 90 kph through 2 feet of snow During a raging blizzard without flinching,

You may live in Canada . If you install security lights on your house and garage,

But leave both unlocked, You may live in Canada .

If you carry jumper cables in your car And your wife knows how to use them,

You may live in Canada.If you design your kid's Halloween costume

To fit over a snowsuit, You may live in Canada.

If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km -- You're going 95 and everybody is passing you,

You may live in Canada. If driving is better in the winter

Because the potholes are filled with snow, You may live in Canada.

If you know all four seasons: Almost winter, winter, still winter,

and road construction, You may live in Canada.

(Emailer wrote: this is my favourite, because how true) If you have more miles On your snow blower than your car,

You may live in Canada.If you find -2 degrees 'a little chilly',

You may live in Canada. If you actually understand these jokes,

and forward them to all your friends you definitely are Canadian.

--------------------Well, you can tell that was not written by someone from Vancouver -- we rarely get snow......

A mosquito is the oldest known skin-diver.The new jail tunnel was a runaway success.

What's the best way to serve a stack of puncakes? Syruptitiously.

What do you get when you cross a snake and a plane? A Boeing Constrictor.
