+ The Internet Archive is building a Canadian copy to protect itself from Trump

˜The history of libraries is one of loss’ by Adi Robertson@thedextriarchy |  Nov 29, 2016, 1:16pm EST

The Internet Archive, a digital library nonprofit that preserves billions of webpages for the historical record, is building a backup archive in Canada after the election of Donald Trump. Today, it began collecting donations for the Internet Archive of Canada, intended to create a copy of the archive outside the United States.

,,,For us, it means keeping our cultural materials safe, private and perpetually accessible....


+ Shortlist of five women who could appear on banknote released

...The Bank of Canada released the list ahead of an announcement on Dec. 8 when the winner will be chosen.

The short list includes Viola Desmond, who fought racial discrimination in Nova Scotia, Pauline Johnson, a poet who was the daughter of a Mohawk chief and an English woman, and Elsie MacGill, the first woman in Canada to receive a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and a master’s degree in aeronautical engineering.

Also on the list is track and field athlete Bobbie Rosenfeld, who won a silver and gold medal at the 1928 Olympics and went on to become a sports columnist, and Idola Saint-Jean, a feminist and pioneer in the fight for suffrage in Quebec....

The whole article: http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/bank-of-canada-banknote-shortlist-includes-five-women/ {I know wch one I'd choose -- wch one wd you?}

=== from the EDITOR'S DESK ===

Sunday Dec 4 - finally finished but hope tomorrow House Geek will put in the photos so can do pagination and then email. Throwing this out the door though many gaps -- apologies -- will comment on the by-election and Castro in the next issue.

Can't resist.

Peter Lambur is a great choice now that we're embarking on an overdue OCP review since he's an architect and planner. Many seem to omit the fact that Batista's military dictatorship was corrupt and with the US embargo, Castro was left with little choice but to fall into Russia's welcoming hands. At least education and health care were free. Know what I'd choose -- but yes, much more complex than that.

And now the frenzy of Christmas is upon us!

Dec 5: forecast by CBC's meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe there'll be the first snow in over 1000 days!

=== WVPD === Award and Amnesty

+ Chief Cst Goerke: WV Police are proud to acknowledge a special cmnty honour bestowed on one of our officers.  WVPD Communications Officer Cst Jeff Palmer was presented with the 2016 North Shore Unity in Diversity Award in a ceremony at the Kay Meek Ctr Wednesday night.Since 1999, the West Vancouver Baha’i Community has sponsored the Unity in Diversity Award. Each year, the award is given to individuals or organizations on Vancouver’s North Shore.

The Unity in Diversity Award seeks to honour individuals and organizations that have made a significant contribution to promoting greater understanding, respect, and unity among diverse groups.  Nominations are reviewed by a panel of independent judges, and winners are recognized at the annual award ceremony.

WVPD Communications Officer Constable Jeff Palmer was nominated for his work with the Integrated First Nations Policing Unit and ongoing communications work within North Shore First Nations Communities.

+ WV Streamkeeper Society ... some info from Newsletter #30

- Mike Akerly has stepped down from the Board, and Mike Perley has joined (just three letters different! :-)).

- 24 nets will be installed at Thunderbird Marina and WV Yacht Club; each net can hold up to 1M herring eggs.

- Larson Estuary Enhancement will be the topic at the Visionary open house Th Oct 27 at Gleneagles Clubhouse.

- Visit the viewing platform on Brothers Crk at the Keith Rd crossing, east of Taylor Way, to see chum and coho salmon. Prez John Barker wrote Oct 23 to say chum arrived last week, so right time for viewing

- The American Bullfrog, a 20cm invasive creature, is evident in both Elveden lakes and has moved into the ponds in the Capilano Golf & Country Club. Attempts to eradicate this unwanted animal are proving difficult and containment seems to be the best hope. They're extremely harmful to other aquatic life including insects, other frogs, snakes, ducklings, and fish.

A Decade of Collecting Art at the West Vancouver Museum

November 16, 2016 • January 14, 2017

Opening Reception Tuesday, November 15, from 7 to 9pm. Curator’s Talk: Saturday, December 3, from 1pm.

The WV Museum’s permanent art collection was established in 2006 with a donation of work by local artist Jane Billaux, who immigrated to Canada from London in 1934. The donation coincided with the Museum’s successful exhibitions on the important history of modernism in the community and the influence of creative individuals, who chose West Vancouver as a place to live and cultivate their careers.

In the intervening decade the collection has grown in both size and scope and now includes over 300 historical and contemporary works by important Canadian artists, including Emily Carr, Gordon Smith, Douglas Coupland, Ian Wallace, Kim Kennedy Austin, and Babak Golkar, just to name a few. Gordon Smith’s major donation of his personal collection in 2015 added substantially to the Museum’s holdings of Canadian art. This exhibition provides an overview of the breadth of the Museum’s art collection and highlights recent donations.

=== HEADSUP 9A: Weekend

Fall’s in full swing and so much going on.

A couple of sad notes first, however. The passing of the impressive

Dr Douglas Coupland [B.Sc., D.D.S., M.D.C.M. C.C.F.P., F.C.F.P., and R.C.A.F. Squadron Leader],

father of our famous Generation X author. And then Royal Canadian Air Farce comedian, Dave Broadfoot, born in NV.

Advance Voting in the by-election at the MHall Saturday.

Take a look at Thursday’s VSun, pB12 for ballet, opera, theatre, and much more. (Cdn’t find a link.)

Spring forward, fall back — so, end of Daylight Savings time Saturday night — put your clocks back an hour for Sunday.


~ 9am ~ LPPS Dale Park Restoration Planting ~ Saturday CANCELLED

It is with great pleasure that I inform you that we completed our restoration planting at the Dale Park ahead of schedule! The hard-working volunteers who came out last Saturday planted the last 70+ plants and spread bark mulch throughout the newly planted areas. It looks absolutely lovely now, with so many healthy native plants and a thick layer of bark mulch throughout.

Therefore, the last event of this fall season, originally scheduled for this Saturday November 5th, is hereby CANCELLED!

This is indeed a significant milestone for our work in this park. Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped us remove huge amounts of invasive plants and restore with new native plants over the past two very busy years! We did it with your help!

Our next volunteer events will be in the new year and they will be posted on our website and in our newsletter in January. Best wishes to all for a happy and healthy holiday season.

=== HEADSUP 9B: Trump; Nov 7 ccl mtg bits; Mtgs, ...

Unbelievable results. Again pollsters were wrong. Tidbit: they can’t access cell phones in the US but can in Canada.

Can’t help wondering if the polls wd not hv bn more accurate had some voters not wanted to admit they favoured Trump.

And apparently Hillary got more votes than Trump, but it depends on the Electoral College and Trump won that, therefore Prez. My poli sci prof (studied at Harvard) at Carleton, Dr. Pauline Jewett (later Prez of SFU), explained its beginning, but it has changed a bit since (and states allocate differently).

The course was on the three systems of govt: UK, US, and Canada. {FWIW, I like ours with a bit more tweaking:-)

Much analysis in the coming days!


btw, the NSN said it wd correct the report that I said no closed council sessions; of course Ccl and cmtes are allowed to have them according to the Cmnty Charter passing a resolution wrt an allowed subject. WGs are not bound by the Cmnty Charter and therefore in camera not allowed.

DWV salaries for 2015 were supposed to go in the last WVM and now will be in the next (WVM10), however I’ll send the whole info and link separately soon, and then WVM10 will only have some of the info, not all. For example, might just be over $90K-100K rather than all above $75K; and will not include Fire or Police.

You’re a subscriber so you get more info — and sooner!


what happened at the ccl mtg Nov 7?

– COUNCIL MTG BITS November 7th

= Closed mtg (DWV red, not mine) started at 4:30 about:

(c) labour relations or other employee relations; and

(g) litigation or potential litigation affecting the municipality.

Purpose of meeting: legal and labour relations matters.

= Mayor announced

o DWV received an award as the Most Fiscally Responsible Municipality by the Commercial Real Estate Development Assn (NAIOP). DWV has managed to keep an annual average inflation rate of 1.49% for devt fees over the past 16 years.

o DWV rec'd the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the current budget from the Govt Finance Officers Assn(GFOA)

o Agenda: Withdrawn — Oct 24 ccl minutes; tree permit applicn;

Added — Addn to Item 3 Oct 17; Report re CEC*; Ccl mtg (Nov 16); Addn to Corresp

* {A bit puzzling; am querying this. On the agenda it has info to be provided and as you see the agenda was amended to add the report, however there was no mention of it afterward, so I initially thought maybe it had been withdrawn. Does our process allow a report that has not been seen by the public to be passed with no indication of what it says? Will let you know when I get an answer/explanation. It’s wrt Terms of Reference so it wd seem to be rather important.}**

** UPDATE: v much appreciated a reply/explanation:

" Council added the report to the Nov 7 agenda in the Approval of Agenda motion. We received the report on Monday afternoon and it was distributed to Council on-table; a copy was also placed in the agenda information binder. On Tuesday morning Nov 8 the report was posted to the November 7 agenda on the District’s website.

A link follows: https://westvancouver.ca/sites/default/files/dwv/council-agendas/2016/nov/07/16nov07-Agenda2.pdf "

{My reaction:

Nothing was said other than an amendment to the ToRef, and what the amendment was was not mentioned during the mtg so we had no idea what it was about. I have never seen anyone looking at the agenda information binder on the desk with stand where agendas are — am sure someone has but certainly not regularly done. Ppl do take agendas.

Since the Consent Agenda is received, with nothing said no one has any idea.

As you see, the report was not posted until the next day. Cdn’t find it on the CEC webpage.

I looked at the link given and as far as I can tell, for some (justifiable) reasons, it was just extending the end of mbrs’ time on the CEC, from the end of December to the end of March. No big deal. Since I was asked about the CEC, I was flummoxed that I had no idea.

Hope to have discussion wrt the process for on-table items for the public to find out what’s actually being approved.}

o Always moving Presentation from our Legion re Veterans’ Week and Remembrance Day.

video: http://westvancouverbc.swagit.com/play/11072016-1313 Item 4; it’s 13min with slides worth watching!

o TUP for parking at PkR approved

= Blueprint for Social Responsibility and Change: a three-year plan to come to Ccl in 2017

Changes to the Blueprint for Social Responsibility and Change – Framework for a Social Action Plan for WV

Bit of shuffle at beginning b/c the Mayor didn’t have the sheet with sign-ups and two ppl stood to speak.

Yours Truly spoke first and suggested that an agenda be on the table with the sign-up sheet so citizens cd easily tell what number they’re signing up for. The mayor graciously replied, “I’m sure that suggestion will be acted upon immediately. To wch I replied, “Fantastic.

I (CR) went on to explain that when the Grants Cmte was first established, decades ago, it was intended for grants,

IOW money for a special project or activity for the organization. It was not for operating expenses for any group since

that wd become an annual commitment — Ccl wd be in the awkward position of possibly affecting whether or not the

group wd continue (or how). Of course it is up to Ccl how they want to go forward, but they might wish to separate the

responsibilities and have two cmtes.

Andy K then spoke referring to the mtg and decisions the cmte made in 2008 setting up long term criteria, and

congratulated it on how far it’s come and how well it has done.

o Ccl Mtg Schedule amended to add a special mtg (ie closed) Nov 16 at 5:30pm

o Illegal tree-cutting on the blvd was discussed, even hired a company without a biz licence; penalties; need more education of public.

o Evergreen Squash Club area: staff dealing with

o Opening of Maison, fantastic amenities, state-of-the-art, available for rent

o Creek walk: variations; some residents overstep boundaries; foreshore; Nature House; saw Streamkeepers’ protection work done

o Zero-Waste Conference: speakers on large screens; get rid of plastic — can throw chiton coffee cups into the sea!

Cdn pre-consumer waste (seven cans of garbage to make one of produce)

o Utilities Cmte: sewage treatment construction to start in 2017, financing/funding not yet finalized

o ACMs: three cclrs went to see the “baker’s dozen at the ADRA ACM Nov 2nd. The announcement that the next one

wd be Nov 15th*** caught my attention. Three more ACMs.

o PQP: A Brit Prop resident made a good case for review of Hadden, re roundabout. Dir/Engg will address the concerns.

***Oops. Since the next ACM is not on the 15th, it’s on the 14th, your editor felt compelled to set the record straight. The next is at the Library, Nov 14th. Was asked to read out the rest.

o Mtg ended about 7:30!


btw, the Civic Awards ceremony/presentations are Tuesday, November 15th — see you there!}

As a subscriber, as I said, you’d get the whole report



We are Council’s and staff’s customers; grateful for their advice and help carrying out our wishes.

Difficult job(s).

It’s in three parts below: 1 Ccl; 2 Employees; then 3 Suppliers

Fire and Police may be omitted in WVM 10; also employees probably only above $90K will be included.

Sop once again only one not to claim any expenses.

Absolutely evident that Council is grossly underpaid — esp given time and responsibility.

Staff — some overpaid (surveys have shown), some underpaid.

Think a typo in Michael Koke’s name (former Dir/Finance).  There’s no Koke in the list, but there is a ˜Kake’, and in the alphabetical order where Koke wd be.

There are spaces in ppl’s names but that might be a result of copy-and-pasting — computers play games behind our backs.

May not put Suppliers in but I read the list and some am curious about (so bolded them):

what is dewatering?

Vernon Pahl’s law firm is listed (Guild Yule LLP) and noted “in trust

some familiar and some unusual names/companies, and amounts.

Clearly some rightfully supported, but good to know we do (and whom).

Have fun figuring all this out!

The Forum panel will feature Tom Davidoff (Director for the Ctr for Urban Economics and Real Estate, UBC), Geoff Croll (President, British Pacific Properties), and Elisa Campbell (Director, Regional Planning and Electoral Area Services, MetroV). These accomplished leading experts will discuss a topic that impacts virtually everyone on the North Shore: how communities can best establish and maintain affordable housing in order to successfully grow and thrive into the future. Jas Johal, a veteran journalist, will once again moderate the panel discussion and audience participation. Full details are available here. http://www.wvcommunitycentressociety.ca/news/forum-dialogue-and-learning-1

The Forum takes place from 7 - 9pm (doors open at 6pm) at the Kay Meek Centre - please note the new location, in order to enhance our seating capacity. The event is free to the community, but as space is limited we ask you to please register online as soon as possible.

Join us at an open house to review the draft plan and give us your thoughts. If you can’t make one of the open houses, you can review the draft plan online [ https://westvancouver.ca/transportation-roads/major-projects/pedestrian-network-study ] and provide your feedback.

=== HEADSUP 9I: Hollyburn Gdns PH Closed; Ccl Mtg Adjourned to Tues 6:30

Oh my! Hollyburn Gardens Rental Infill PH lasted until 10:43pm (from 6:03!), when it was closed.  Sop was the only one who voted against closing the PH. They then adopted the minutes on the agenda and moved to continue the mtg at 6:30 Tuesday.   

What a lot of information — and some of it contradictory.  Someone said can’t find rental accommodation — then someone else put up a notice showing 297 available!  (Cdn’t help wondering if AirBnB.) Do hope some fact-checking done so that when they make their decision tomorrow night it will be based on facts, not hearsay or emotions.  My comment was that it will need six Solomons!

One person said heard four or five such devts planned nearby.  When asked, the Dir of Planning said he knew of no applications.  Cass perceptively observed that they might be waiting to see the result of this vote.  Later, however, he said the OCP discussion for that area wd be in the spring (implication zoning of that area then).


Hollyburn Gardens Rental Infill (195 21st St) is on the agenda tomorrow (Tues), to be decided/voted on.

Also the Marine Drive Context Study is on the Agenda.

5. Marine Drive Context Study: Engagement Findings and Response (File: 2517-06) Appendices A, B, C, D, E 


1. The revised Marine Drive Context Study and Guidelines, Summary of Engagement Process and Findings, and Full Transcript of Public Comments (attached as Appendices A, B, and C respectively to the report dated Nov 9, 2016) be rec'd for info; and 

2. Council consideration of the revised Marine Drive Context Study and Guidelines be given at the Dec 5 Ccl mtg. 

The whole agenda: https://westvancouver.ca/sites/default/files/dwv/council-agendas/2016/nov/28/16nov28-Agenda-copy2.pdf

PUNs  and  politics {to end}

=== HEADSUP 9J: : Rest of the Nov 29 Ccl Mtg! HGdns; MDr Context; etc

Started out as Hollyburn Gardens 2.0

Actually, the beginning of the mtg was dramatic.

Booth moved second reading.  Mayor asked for a seconder.  Nothing.  Not a peep.  Asked for a seconder again.  Still nothing (!).  So the Mayor said he’d second it to start the discussion.


Then everyone took turns saying what they thought; rather convoluted and complicated¦¦

Seen as: Nbrhd vs Cmnty

Plot killer: 

It took until almost 8pm but all the Hollyburn Gardens Rental Infill motions passed with only Sop opposed (and to them all).

Then the mtg embarked on the Marine Drive Context Study — even more complex than Hollyburn Gardens!

The ever-present dilemma of whether nbrhd or cmnty first.  Some interesting, thoughtful, and critical input from residents.  Till almost 10pm when decided to have staff clarify some points and bring back in January, so then had to extend the mtg.  Again!

Think a record wrt ccl mtgs — two in succession, the first almost five hours followed by one of about four hours.

No doubt cclrs underpaid, as I’ve said before.

Sop asked about borrowing (30-yr term) from the MFA when the Endowment Fund is $10M above the threshold. Interest to pay the loan.

Pity staff had to wait till almost 10pm to tell us about the proposed sport and active recreation policy — even Ccl said it was v good! [to about 10:23]

THEN (to 10:25) 

= Informative and even interesting Invasive Plants Strategy Update

= Two lots dedicated to Ambleside Park

= Third Qtr Financial Report

= Proposed Devt Permit for cluster housing at 2821 Chippendale to be considered at the first mtg in 2017


Mayor was going to give a full report on TransLink but since so late will do so at next Monday’s mtg


Felt I had to say thanks for putting the agenda next to the sign-up sheet inside the chamber as I’d suggested at the last mtg when a couple of ppl hadn’t — facilitates filling in the item number.  I also mentioned that the traffic approaching the LGB is much less now than 30 years ago (will put the Mayor’s response in next issue).

Two Qs

Also b/c of the uncertainty over the approval of the Context and OCP as approved, wanted the public to hear about bylaws, asked No 1, then about “openness all pledged, No. 2.

1. Are bylaws to be followed (and enforced) or are they guidelines?

(as a resident was told by a mbr of DWV staff)

2. Can Devt Permits be seen or does it require an FOI request?**

(as a resident was told by a mbr of DWV staff, after being refused request to see it)

It was referred to Mr Chan re enforcement.  I did not pursue that b/c late, but re No 2, thanked Ms Scholes, MClerk, b/c was told she told the resident an FOI was not required.

ADJOURNMENT before 10:30, but still another monster mtg after the previous night’s!

The next ccl mtg is on Monday (Dec 5th), so the saga continues, and with a new actor.

AGENDA: https://westvancouver.ca/sites/default/files/dwv/council-agendas/2016/dec/05/16dec05-Agenda2.pdf

Too many things happening and too little time!  There are more activities than listed here but here are some eg Vancouver Opera’s Hansel and Greter..  There’ll be more in WVM if I ever finish it!

DON’T FORGET: The ccl mtg on Monday Dec 5 starts at 5pm! {Dec 2 changed to 5:30}

btw, a few INFObits first:  

=  In BC, women were allowed to vote100 years ago (in November)!

=  On Nov. 24, central Tokyo experienced its earliest first accumulation of snow since 1875, when such observations began.

=  Not yet from the recount, but Hillary has won at least 2.5M more votes than Trump.  What a system!

A Decade of Collecting Art at the West Vancouver Museum

Until January 14, 2017

Curator’s Talk: Saturday, December 3, from 1 p.m.

Please join Curator Darrin Morrison, who will speak about the collection, its importance to the mandate of the Museum, and share his curatorial decisions in organizing the exhibition. The tour will include a discussion about specific works•how they came into the collection and the artists’ connections to the community. 

The West Vancouver Museum’s permanent art collection was established in 2006 with a donation of work by local artist Jane Billaux, who immigrated to Canada from London in 1934. The donation coincided with the Museum’s successful exhibitions on the important history of modernism in the community and the influence of creative individuals, who chose West Vancouver as a place to live and cultivate their careers.

In the past decade, the collection has grown in both size and scope and now includes over 300 historical and contemporary works by important Canadian artists. Gordon Smith’s major donation of his personal collection in 2015 added substantially to the Museum’s holdings of Canadian art. This exhibition provides an overview of the breadth of the Museum’s art collection and highlights recent donations. 

Featured artists in this exhibition:  Peter Aspell, Kim Kennedy Austin, Joan Balzar, Alistair Bell, Jane Billaux,

B.C. Binning, Bruno Bobak, Molly Lamb Bobak, Robert Buckham, Emily Carr, Douglas Coupland, Christos Dikeakos, Winston Elliott, Enn Erisalu, John Fulker, Babak Golkar, Angela Grossman, Fred Herzog, Gordon House, Tam Irving, Don Jarvis, Ann Kipling, Zoltan Kiss, John Koerner, Lyse Lemieux, Al McWilliams, Richard Prince, Selwyn Pullan, Philippe Raphanel, Bill Reid, Jack Shadbolt, Elizabeth Smily, Gordon Smith, Sylvia Tait, Takao Tanabe, Lionel Thomas,

Kirk Tougas, Irene Whittome, Ian Wallace, Lyle Wilson and Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun. 

Open Hours: Tues through Sat, 11am - 5pm . Admission is by donation. Closed from Dec 20, reopens Jan 3, 2017.

11 structured conversations with interested public; tonight opp for any and all

one comment I want to reflect on in particular

a brown site, not abused, but ¦ long time; storing boats and cars; effective use 3 mos of the year

to put the site to use effectively has led to the proposal

well situated, doesn’t shadow anybody¦

why as large? at the root, 160 dwelling units in lower mainland not a big thing but big in HBay, seen as a nbrhd, a place in its own right; needs to come to be a part of the fabric of the cmnty, make whole not divisive

HBay is a microcosm of WV, a microcosm of the Greater Vanc area; well defined by geog ¦ one tributary access (LGB)

defined even finer in the bay, the bowl it sits in, steep sides¦

having grown up, ¦ realize my own story — I grew up on Sentinel Hill, three or four blocks from here

at the time PkRoyal was a horse field

the village, Ambleside, serviced the whole

when PkR got built, clear recolln of the village struggling

M managed to account for increase in popn

multiple dwelling— derogatory remarks about hi rises

nothing is ever perfect, but better than it was; that’s the effect this proposal will have and bring to HBay; healthier

might as much as double the popn, I’m inclined to say, good!

that many more ppl able to live and enjoy the cmnty, desirable

glad having opp to bring it before you.

[two came up]

xxx: WV has the highest family income in MetroV

the? av WV family has an income of $115K compared to av $80K

prob is WV also has the most expensive housing in LM (Lower Mainland)

According to the Real Estate Bd of Vancouver, av price of home $2.8M including both sgl and multi-fam units


interesting; house prices rising —see on graph, a lot of gains only in last 18 mos

part of reason is WV has lowest amt of multifam housing in MetroV

29% of housing stock in WV is multi-fam whereas 40% average in LM and 60% in City of V.

according to DWV, WV needs another 4800 units by 2020, wch is where HBay comes in

{Since I know that WV’s popn is around half or more in multifam, I wondered about this. I was told that they were not including duplexes. Then discovered he wasn’t including townhouses, secondary suites, or coach houses.}

parking — this will provide more

summer huge, not the rest of the year

traffic studies show not really as overwhelmed as ppl feared

realize though in the Bay xxx

sadly noise and inconvenience all over the st

good by bare? and over in three years’ time

then less polution and noise

no? restriction for xxx for rentals

satisfied signif xxx and xxx


LEED gold all contribute to GHG

support infrastructure for electric vehicles, car-sharing

shd be required by others xxx as well

CACs reflect the up value

some accuse out for only

B/c this and xxx not a factor influencing my decision

young adults, early retirees and seniors; provide housing options for them and locals

in terms of the submissions, at least 80 to 85% in support of past months

relate to Sewell familly, they shd be v proud of support

resp in that cmnty

somebody said, large amts of money no one shd be trusted

I trust our staff to ensure dvprs wd stick to the plan

overwhelming support is rare’in my 5 yrs

plan in HBay

we and staff will be paying close attention to the construction, price $85sf

locals first

some day I’ll rent a drone to see if it looks like what it looks lke in the drawings

Cam: try not to repeat

imp for everyone to know reasons for decision

second most signif in my 5 yrs on Ccl, on par with Grosv

the Sewells' aim

our role to make sure public interest served and benefits the cmnty as best as possible

proceeds publicly

want to echo the mayor’s and Booth’s comments; our homes are changing rapidly around us

devt is nec; and may say, inevitable

heard someone mention, wish bridge had never been built

xxx; proj had housing stock variety, public realm benefits to biz ell

as Cass said jolt

getting money we can build rental housing in a¦. of the cmnty

at the same time a number of risks

those writing in with concerns were constructive and articulate

too big? effect on HBay? have to know these

no certainty how this will affect HBay; wd hv &&&

must assess it on its merits now; impact on HBay, and¦

Merrick is excellent

public benefits,¦.. pushed for larger continuous green space

traffic impact can be identified,

biggest uncertainty is occupation of the units

we’re taking a bit of a chance; sell to local, first as a home and then as a commodity

app comments from Westbank; risks outweighed by the rewards

quote Sam Johnson: nothing will ever be attempted if all objections overcome; perfect is the enemy of the good

will support it and take the risk; as Gamb said, will be watching if meeting the lofty objectives

Written Submissions received up to and including September 22, 2016: None to date

Slide: Construction Parking [6:27]

2hr parking along Arthur Erickson Place — some District Signage

Construction Staging

W ... Lot 7 shd be completed by Spring 2019


Mayor: one person has

James Spack: actually there are two ppl who have signed up

Tom Doyle: live at Arthur Erickson place; forest edge 1 and 2, Lot 5

71 residences in 1 and 2; overlook Lot 6, adj to Lot 5 - ~15 feet of planting

will have a direct overlook of this area

what we see of Lot 9, inappropriate to store stuff that close to residences

leave Lot 6 alone and leave it as a buffer

Lot 7 is going to take 2 - 3 years

EPS2592, I’m prez of the strata Ccl; we object

Mayor: have you made that point?


James Spack: thank you for that presentation

overlooking Forest Edge in Lot 9

the three-year temp permit, live in a construction zone, Onni needs room

bland 10 9 6 is inefficient; Lot 8 is larger, more isolated

120 of us living there wd be able to drive down and have to drive down Keith above

app overplanting of Lot 9, First Aid to xxx but don’t see need for &

8 substantial parking for next two years Lots xxx

ab for them to do landscaping to hide that area

give sufficient coverage for timing

don’t object to Onni having right for storage but in Lot 8, ample size

Mayor: Mr Bailey, can you

JB: understand concerns; invite Onni to respond

Mayor: thank you; will get applicant to repond

ONNI: hear loud and clear; wd make Lot 7 easier if allowed on 6

considered when entering in the master plan; staging Lot 6 until 7+ completed

we are committed though to mitigate amt of storage; cd store on lot 9 but want Lot 6 for some

Cam: any way we can convince you to limit to Lot 6? wd you consider that?

[6:36] Ans: not a & expert; think we cd commit to using that parcel plan for Lot 7 and EWalk; and use Lot 6

Mayor: cd approve motion 8 9 10 and if doesn’t meet your needs Onni cd come back and ask for Lot 6

looking for guidance

LB: we cd look at it as moving in westerly direction

Mayor: enough for the motion then

Sop moved:

- all written/oral submissions re prpsed TUP (Evelyn by Onni) up to + including the Ccl mtg held on Oct 3 be rec'd for info.


- proposed TUP, wch wd allow for temp vehicle parking lots and construction materials storage and staging on portions of Lots 8, 9, and 10 at Evelyn by Onni for up to three years, be approved.

Sop: happy with it if they do what they say theyre going to do

Mayor: saying can do it without using Lot 6

How far will the Plan take us?

starting from a base of 2010, how far can we go by 2040?

BAU = Biz as Usual

WV ahead of the curve so no expect

but from transp, adoption of electric vehicles

bldg sector [6:58]

BC Hydro decarbonizing

will get a 40% reduction, some gains on bldg size by 2040

SLIDE of GHFF Projections 2010-40

was a goal, reduce 50% by 2050

use our 2040 and expand to 2050 we have a reasonable

feel we shd stick with 80%

we have big ideas; will take a lot of courage SLIDE [7:01]

prop tax calc partly based on energy use; opp ev year to reduce tax you pay

charge all sgl-fam homes for energy retrofit measures with a 5yr payback

can avoid paying if &&&

Create an Energy Bylaw to be hooked up¦ ultra-low energy systems

Five Ways to DEV and get started

walkable village nodes; missing middle housing; retrofits and revitalization; walking/biking connections between village nodes and schools; sharing cmnty; Implementation

Recomms ... annual reporting, [list]

LAST WORD -- putting all of our begs into one basket

make GHG central to activity

if you do that; we’ll definitely vote for you

Cclr Lewis did a fab job

{get QTN}

Mayor: thank ... professionalism

Sop: can see advocacy in your eyes; all that hard work, commended for that

$s needed; seems a large amt of staff time, has a cost to it

true cost to citizens, when talking to

ANS: always a cost and time required

40 bundles of activities; tried to calc time, relatively moderate costs

min cost, moderate, or high and only two came out with high, xxx, and rest in middle [7:11]

Sop: Eagle Lake almost neutral; ¦ BPP

DH: did

future focus is Cyp V, has been factored in

Sop: any decisions to move fwd will be brought back to Ccl

DH: commit to plan, we’ll bring back re funding, xxx

Sop: Canada, only 2%

go up to Petronas xxx tons; what does that say?

Mayor: we can only control what we can control; WV shining example

JM: more pleasant to live in; allows ppl to ...

lived my whole life here, you know, Bill, we were on the APC 30 years ago — we were teenagers then

MB: much technical info

re implementation matrix — where do we start

how devpd table and rely on for our values, lead to good decision re implementation?

look at transportation — rapid and ¦ cycling¦. 2.4¦ makes me think put our dollars

this matrix


JM: maybe ask our consultant

Consultant: look at p 80

costs and other priorities; matrix of opps and trade-offs made

here top identified priorities; focus on growth walkable cmtes, create senior residences

bit decision-making structure; understand, WG close collaboration with staff

MB: plans to impl so xxx [7:18]

ANS: incremental; can be leveraged; incremental cost for staff, but to integrate rather than initiate

Cam: this is great; don’t know where to start but in the interests of time, one

largest component is from bldgs; you’ve suggested gentle ways; in future divesity

can’t do anything to mack? two ppl &&& ... make it [7:20]

re traffic heard it said a bigger bridge, xxx

seems to me you’ve either shied away or avoided max housing size

nibbling around the edges; houses being built in WV are gigantic in a global sense

Mayor: who wants to tackle that

JM: ¦. if Ccl wants to be bold; give choice; activate existing villages; where we can do infill

pass it over to Matchey {pronunciation of Maciej}: any bldg use zero energy

huge movement toward net zero bldgs; doesn’t matter if 10 or 10Ksf; allocate technologies; Q of how built

maybe ev day and not rocket science and doesn’t cost a fortune; displace as much

Cam: my stepfather built a passive house

{Mentioned earlier so researched it. Passive House is explained in ArchitectureWatch in the last WVM (issue 5-6.5, p 91)}

all the materials, a completely diff Q

when you build huge houses on huge lots; service them; get in car and drive

all I wd say is, this is great; more fundamental choices; max house size, think there is in NV

we didn't last year

wd meet many of the goals; I’m quibbling

fundamental changes we cd make

ANS: the plan has several elements; places, houses, and zoning

we have zoning in BPP large lots but can’t subdiv

xxx ... will be interest if small shops within walking areas

try to implement measures¦. strategic, like zoning; question of how

Cass: tyvm for all your hard work

fan in me, rabid recycler; known on first-name basis; shdn’t brag about it

topic fascinating, av taxpayer, is grabbing pocketbooks

so this is just passing in principle so anything costs will come back to Ccl

come back to Ccl, so, last Q: who’s paying for an electric car, who’s paying

ANS; not now, will have

Cass: so, taxpayer

???: one in PkRoyal

Sop: cdn’t hear

ANS: some shopping ctrs. etc

Cass: as a cmte did you approach car-to-go for incentive?

MALE: did approach MODO, some work needs to be done by Dist to facilitate where they can park

Cass: broke my promise; what xxx [7:30]

ANS: has to be place for cars to park so target market

car-sharing companies will tell you what they need

RF: vanS has already said

some of the densities in WV might not xxx the

right now only place car-to-go is HBay and to be serving Bowen Island; does require parking spaces

take away eg in Amb and have them used exclusively

Gamb: all kinds of things to ask, some have been asked, so, can someone tell me why WV is at 4.8Tpp when av is 3.1?

ANS: mainly small bungalows, don’t have any industry; coupled with automobile dependency

Gamb: insulate your homes [7:33] ... and “densify


ppl have to get started, change

size of homes, on p4 — encouraging xxx perf for v large homes; cd you pls put a number

ANS: politically correct

Gamb: xxx

ANS: number of ppl

w/ husband 1000sf for ten years and happy -- maybe sqft per person?

Gamb: with your help we can nail that down

for Planning’s sake

my cousin in Boulder, CO -- cannot build over 2900sf &&& [7:36] -- they’ve done it there, here?

how can we ensure this fab plan doesn’t gather dust?

DH: three parts of the motion; planning land-use related

looking for direction in 6mos to report back and update, tell Ccl wrt going fwd

[7:37] MOTION:

1. The Better Climate, Better Cmnty: WV CEEP, Summary Report and Full Technical Report (att'd as Appendices A and B respectively to the report from the Manager of Community Planning) be adopted;

2. Staff commence CEEP implementation through the OCP review and other key departmental work plans; and

3. Staff report back six mos from the date of Ccl adoption w/ a status update on implementation progress to date and directions for next steps.

Mayor: as one motion?


Mayor: we’ve

Gamb: we’ve asked Qs, not spoken

all of these seven have worked past two years xxx

this is a group that has saved us thousands of dollars

a round of applause to start


give you a few months off ... move fwd

Cam: one anecdote

when discussing who shd be rep; all thought a fun ... seem to recall Lewis was quiet

looked over, and if the ppl able to convince Lewis made sense; will be something pass muster

so put the biggest skeptic; he agreed

within a couple of months it was shocking what was coming out of his mouth; only had positive


he talked about hearts and mind and think you guys captured his heart and mind; testament; thank you for that

what we’re going to do but you put us on the right path

Mayor: passed unan; thank you for all your good work

7. West Vancouver Corporate Energy & Emissions Plan (File: 0540-01) Appendix A – Corporate Report [7:42]

RF: ask Doug McKee (energy mgr); K to give an overview


through consultants, company and me {not myself!}

Staff ask be adopted; staff report back after a year

physical and financial impacts in future

largest GHG is from heating buildings

Graph of Corporate GHG inventories; opps for quick reductions; has dropped 35%

District carbon neutral for a period of time; Dist has been taking measures; small, anti-idling, LED lights, computer control,


recogn further measures SLIDE: Continuing Progress

actions require staff [not always $$$]; more electric and hybrid vehicles; vehicle-trip planning

Staff recommends implement and begin on plan, thank you for your time

Mayor: mbr of public wishes to speak Mark LXX -- not here?

Cam: understand there are targets; reduction of 33% and 80% by 2050 -- believe you’re proposing less than that

DMcK: 33% target, now we’re at 18%

[things can help us get to that

Cam: prov targets are based on xxx [7:52]; consistent rule, no govt in Canada has met

BC is xxx to blow past theirs

xxx hope meet those

don’t want to be another logistics, sets a target that isn’t met b/c erodes ev citizens confidence in process; quite corrosive

Chretien set targets and didn’t meet

xxx [7:53] you fully intend to meet — workable path?

DMcK: some involve replacexxx some vehicles

observational and behavioural change — low cost and quite val

wrt equipment at Aquatic Ctr, new, much more efficient

can’t always tell when replacement — emergency or planned; has to go

2007 to 2020 have made it more than half way, xxx

Cam: v careful answer

think you said we cd make the targets but comes down to cost

DMcK: so then p2? budget $2 - 3M

$350K; imp maintain that mix of cost and benefits

spending that money

balancing Ccl’s goals: get cost savings, energy savings, that cmnty can stomach

guess xxx say we’ll try that and see if it works

DMcK; faircomment and that will be GHGs, been reporting, but a doc will allow a certain focus among staff.

track benefit as well

Cam: track is important; meet targets

Gamb: bit of a segue; had a target since 2012; let’s have staff tell us how to do it and cost

if want to be as good a citizen then xxx; don’t want to pussyfoot around for two years and not [7:59]


Gamb: p 51, 2 (check)

fleet up 10% ... why not

DMcK: bldgs have more pieces, can xxx

fleet — xxx ... if more work needs to be done on roads, more fuel used for that

more work has been done on the bldg side b/c a focus on that

have a fleet mgr interested in GHG; also how soon replaced but he has no control

as with weather hard to control from year to year

RF: I can supplement

we have ageing infrastructure and Ccl has emphasized [8:01]

so more crews on the road and vehicles whether tandem truck or backhoe, increase the toal

8. Official Community Plan Review: Progress Update and Next Steps (File: 2517-02)

Mayor: be thorough but quick, got 25 signed up

DH: this is an information report, outline steps, and opps

SLIDES: Progress to Date (alphabetical), with comments

mature cmt, have an OCP; recently Waterfront

decade of WG reports, etc

wd like an updated OCP in 2018

Refresh — want to educate the cmnty (capture WG/work)

[Engagement re?] Streams

1 — Envmtal policies; Heritage strategic plan; Housing policies (nbrhd/character); trans policies; Parks; Upper lands

Wd like to start next year wrt policies, OCP guiding principles (check if still resonate, are there others?)

reconnect with Chairs and other stakeholders

draft updated strategies, grouped thematically; engage cmnty (open houses and surveys)

end of 2017/2018, summarize and analyze


2 — Deeper Dives: PkR, up TWay; HBay, Cyp V; in the middle of MDr process (survey and mtg this week), Amb Town Ctr 2017 pending completion of MDr

SLIDE of outreach mtgs with stakeholders; start with Qs not ANSd; wider launch of Town Ctr process; planning proc, view options; preferred directions; proposed plan

timing of Cyp V subject to cost-recovery details; will involve a WG

TWay Corridor, estimate 2018; HBay, post 2018

2018 OCP to provide framework for detailed review; planning area

These two streams to proceed in tandem; influence each other

roundtable disc; survey since last week; mtgs Nov/Dec come back to Ccl Nov 28

early 2017 OCP one; Amb Launch

Mayor: think that was v clear, app that.

Cass made motion: THAT the report dated September 15, 2016 be received for information.

Gamb: my only concern, all great, is prioritizing last three; CypV coming before TWay and OCP

have heard a lot of ppl speak about TWay two years ago when [Grosv]

think CypV is a great idea but don’t think time; it shd be third of the three

{yes, several have wondered why Cypress V has been moved up, esp since not listed with Ccl's seven priorities. hm. BPP?}

Cam: unf TWay be delayed, not till end of 2018, two years; explore ways to speed the process up

HBay and TWay; agree with Gamb; some interest but

Sop: end of Whitby states and RCrk be a look at a small shopping ctr; money put away by BPP and [8:20]

am sure can carry on with CypV including all the nes? doing to date

MB: gone in and out of plan

even though on the list, given the comments on the report; not going to have a xxx review

DH: each getting what deserved; implies a sequence r

given [Sewell’s) so xxx &&& [8:22]

Cass: have to concur with Gamb, vast maj of ppl others of interest

Sewell’s to see I and E the op Sewell’s is offering

far more imp to me -- equally imp to me, is our lands at 22nd and Gordon; make money value of $ went up

9. Proposed Coach House at 5826 Eagle Island (File: 1010-20-15-074 / 1610-20-4914)

CBishop?: tonight’s mtg is not a PH

38Ksf second largest prop on Eagle Island

SLIDES showing map, features, tennis court, trees, etc; proposed coach house [8:29]

revert to l.35, live in it while renovate house, then rent coach house

number of concerns: parking on mainland, xxx, impact on docks, services, character, etc

supported by staff on technical merits

staff recogn signif concerns and limited capacity for coach houses on the island

applicant has agreed to —- parking, etc -- limiting to .26 while coach house; PH

applicant here to ans

[Mayor Smith left the mtg at 8:28pm, Cclr Sop assumed the Chair. Mayor Smith returned at 8:29pm, assumed the Chair.]

Sop: was there a comment made wrt a visit to Eagle Island

structures on the Island at a maximum

RF: want to understand fulness of that Q to services

unique situation; parking reqmt cannot be met within the island but has to be met from the mainland

along Egl Hbr Rd opps to park a vehicle; Q is what wd be traded off? a gen public parking by (coach?) house user

re water, capacity, we just completed a master water study that beyond the island might not have the fire-flow pressure

sewer and water in existence

Sop: in anticipation of more say up to four new open doors, is it the Engg position wd not hv to be any upgrading to water and sewer?

RF: think that’s why before you

coach house approp in this place but given an island not mentioned is boat access, storage, barges

physical limitations, how many/much more can be

think the primary issue before Ccl is the coach house xxx

based on an applicant-by-applicant squeeze another, at some point can’t; for consideration by Ccl

Sop: re fire suppression on the Island; spoke to Fire Dept — 911, fire boat from Vanc -- ppl on island told they'd have to look after themselves

go past a certain point; certain restrictions, cannot use those boats

ANS: firefighters will not go over to

{GET THIS [8:38] }

MB: what size house wd this accommodate?

ANS: 13,400ft size not including exemptions wch depend on basement, etc xxx ... acceptable this

MB: no restriction on number of cars anyone can own, right?

RF: staff hv bn working with isanders and mainlanders to come up with an arrangement on practical terms

all realize accommodate the needs of both groups; designate stalls, certain pkg permits issued

if more units on island those arrangements wd hv to be revisited

along Hbr Rd and limited spots so wd have to take away a spot from public and dedicate to islander

makes servicing challenge for staff


Chris Poulter: my wife and live ... short video to show you our plans

coach house process in 2013/14; first notified our nbrs in Jan 2015; provide renderings to all islanders and have updated in 2016; no negatives but two major concerns; parking and water access

our plan does not result in a sgl lost space on island or Road

one add’l space on EHbr Rd where undeveloped road

adequate barge space to allow for three coach houses; docks not at capacity

Planning stated xxx for barge parking

if barge mooring ever an issue at a future date, a cable ferry and eliminate need for barges

a few years ago, concern re access for emergency personnel; a cable ferry wd address that

advised by utilities, advised adequate 140PSI

since video 58.

advised water already affected

my wife, a realtor represented and no problem with the water; cd hv been a &&&

our proposal meets all the coach house guidelines xxx

note to Cass; will also be recycling a xxx structure into a livable home

[8:46] sw corner 5826 Eagle Island

video ~7min: ~ photos parking, water access, dock due for [upgrading?} has excess; infrastructure, nature of island

larger house permitted, nearly on a creek

Mayor: thank you

[Councillor Cameron left the meeting at 8:47 and returned to the meeting at 8:48pm.]

Gamb: Q for staff; realize applicn for a coach house; going there as a kid many underbuilt so cd be added to; so we wdn't have any say except for sqft

no say re how many ppl, cars, parents to live wth them. ¦. so no

ANS: props can be developed, through a bldg permit cd be

no control over occupants — 2 or 6 ppl no power

Gamb: a house cd be built 13Ksf above ground so cd be 18Ksf and xxx cu ft of rocks blasted out

Ans: 13.4K not included in exemptions (re basement cu m 600 of blasting

Gamb: so nbrs cdn't

ANS: yes, wd go through

Gamb: someone who’s going to speak, when about 10, had a v good friend, came across on a barge, crank a big barge

what happened to those? not shared with whole cmnty rather than xxx barges now

Mayor: now hear from the public;

know you’ve been waiting; will call two names at a time: Colin White followed by Keiko Mori

Colin White: in the video; didn’t address the seven homes that don’t use that dock but have the right to do so; .actually does, xxx ... dinghy shortest distance,¦. spots not usable so not really as presented

Keiko Mori: lived on island for 27 years

things have changed, some welcome, some not; all realize have to adapt; didn’t have to compromise fundamentals

tremendous stress in our cmnty; maj here remain adamant; derogation of cmnty

probs with docks, parking, sewage¦.

families grown so more pkg stalls required; two hv been compromised

dock spaces; when my daughter came back from Vic, she called me middle of night; low tide no space

if this is to be accepted, all these others shd be accepted, not just this space

doesn’t know how

Terry Duncan: directly to east; my remarks all not just this

commend in 2014 not to allow coach house; nothing has changed

parking: the open across from the Yacht Club re full, many speaking illegally; 1/4 of a mile at Eagle Hbr; islanders wd prefer illegal parking¦ adding... wd not meet [9:08]

reason having probs, at low tide parking not accessible

moved here this year; so many so helpful; sense of nbrliness; w/ only one trail, do run into your nbrs frequently

house cd change the nature

Vanc short-term rentals changing

unf indeed that E Island cd lose the advantage; thank you

Mayor: thank you for coming

Ian Parker: 5869; three-time graduate of Juillard

living on the island; imp to teach, students can’t park, so relocated to Bby, live

hard time parking — at full capacity both for vehicles and barges

it is a magical place xxx; fully understand in NYC; just think it’s not going to work

Pierre Lebel: owned a home for over 7 years; v opposed to sec joined by 80+%

also includes ppl at end of E Hbr Rd; this opposition is not a matter of inconvenience

not part of plan. not possible to have off parking¦.. [9:12]

parking has always bn and always will be —- no room for more

limited applicns; a lot wd apply; then expect Ccl to provide

not like on Mathers, not fair to anyone else so can't look at in

opposition has been known to proponents ever since proposed

applcn compels ev on the island to accommodate in ways not anticipated

an Eagle Island Residents’ Assn has been formed

Cam: how many barges?

ANS: also one by xxx for 25 years; ... on loading

Man stood up: barge not there for repairs so using dinghy

George Sinclair: 5870 on north side, lived there permanently since 1968 — longest, chose knowing all the difficulties

ccl report re DWV planning ... prop owners have obtained parking

these spots were not purchased or by joining the Yacht Club were provided by an agreement betw DWV and Yacht Club and sublease 1989

we plan to use in off periods

therefore request rejected at first reading; precedent

John Owen; new owner 5822; one year ago went to Hll? RS6

no coach houses allowed and our real estate agent confirmed that

I come home most evenings about 11 — there’s one spot left; come at 3pm no prol

3 cars parked illegally, won’t park at Telegraph Trail — groceries walk

I’m an architect, no site elevation showing

tennis court 20+ ft above

looks directly into our 3rd floor bathroom and shower [9:26]

we submitted these concerns in writing Jan this year and no reply

so in short; not go to PH and put a moratorium on coach houses

Patricia Skill: haven’t been there for many years — no cars, no service vehicles, no garbage dump

on my side 5700 no one on EHbr Rd, cannot park

bring more, use our street, we aren't

[MOVED by Booth, seconded by Gambioli:

proposed coach house plans be added as Sched A of Appx B to the report dated Sept 15 re “Proposed Coach House at 5826 Eagle Isl] Mayor: motion carries; now can get on to

MB moved

THAT proposed “Zoning Bylaw No. 4662, 2010, Amendment Bylaw No. 4914, 2016 be read a first time.

Gamb seconded?

MB: have been over to Eagle Island and it is a sp place

go back to when it all started

Ccl is dealing with affordable

ev except for Eagle Island b/c capacity issues

but at that time Mr Poulter came to Ccl, at each mtg and said pls apply to E Is

each time staff said can’t but b/c unique

2014 all WV except ffor RS6, but Mr Poulter was told you can come to Ccl and apply for a rezoning

there is policy on our books that compels Ccl to consider ¦¦. subject to site-specific

so our own policy requires us to consider coach houses b/c gentle density xxx

applicants considerale time; owe them to go to PH

it’s not about the coach house, it's about our policy, his day in court and to publicly; think it’s unfair not to go

did mention housing affordability

biggest fear I hear from the cmnty is that will somehow set a precedent and open the floodgates

Staff have said cd xxx up to three coach houses

don’t think E Is wd be overrun

wd set a precedent — a voluntary downzoning — suggest from the coach house

vol CAC for a parking spot wch cost money ?

before going to design, there is a further process on design, view, etc

considerable expense in a rezoning faint of heart and light of pocketbook; $6K, design/architect

we are the gatekeepers, and despite my avocation as a lawyer, not just [10:06]

if all of these things

is it economic; only someone who is driven to do it

grand total in all of WV is 7 or 8 applicns re building coach houses

going to cost $250K to build a CH and doesn’t add value

those are the mitigating factors and do believe only fair re process and go to PH

Gamb: won’t repeat but will add

it’s tough one, 40 years ago

friends on Passage Island

when I try to interpret what was said, not go forward; my interpretation — others against increasng

how do we downzone or &&& anyone from [10:09]

hear a moratorium adding another person or anyone driving a car


don’t want to use any services

any senior going to a

no more than two ppl can move into a house

a lot of concerns

on the mainland, dealing w/ a lot of issues; nbrs concerned about constr next door; it’s a little bit like be careful what you wish for, the building or owner will sell and leave, and will build a house 5x the size and cut down ev tree

this is a tough one

going to be difficult in the future to hv ev the same

Cass: I grew up in Eagle Hbr; swum and any times over in the Island

I don’t agree with Cclr Booth to PH

how much...

just b/c an applicn begins ... that we’re obligated to

it’s merely leading the ppl on

have heard from owners had chn there; raised fam; so not a question of xxx

we don’t want b/c more coach houses

nothing against Mr Poulter or the xxx of ... we'll be opening the door

he will limit and don’t disagree he xxx ... at some point he might want to sell; we hv no guarantee not going to come down and build that xxx home b/c that wd be his right

all still in place

don’t believe to &&& [10:16] xxx stand behind xxx

Sop: did a bit of my homework, went with applicants to home, open and friendly; 1 1/2 hrs, made my own assessments

then went to listen to 22 ppl in a house, reasons opposed to a coach house

as I listened I began to feel more to this than just an application for a house

shown boats, parking; why ppl live there

livability; a happy to be here smugness b/c so great to live there; am sure applicants the same way

a lot of thought, my position, cannot support going ahead to a PH

it wd be precedent-setting; staff said not b/c each had to go through merit of change

you’re allowed two boarders there; multiplying as a way of life

looking at all the work applicants have done; heard from nbrs; other nbrs saying I might go for a coach house as well

well-being and a sense of truce

passion for that island is sitting right here in front of us and something that shd be protected

for a few¦. many

[Councillor Cameron left the meeting at 10:17 and returned at 10:18pm.]

Mayor: no one else has signed up to speak

piece of prop ideal for a coach house; only problem is that it’s on E Island

has a finite capacity for how many can live there

don't see a lot of coach house applicns but sec stes

don’t know how we cd deny

while tenor of the island wd change, unfair to ppl who live there

I don’t support going to PH -- a lot of reasons

doesn't mean emerg response police and fire 7min talked to Police Chief cd in 10 - 15 min and depended something there

someone there looting your home

don’t think compound(?)

doubling ... xxx; not sup

porting so that’s my point

Cam: Milan Kundera’s ¦.

{I recognized the reference to Kundera’s Unbearable Lightness of Being, so later asked him to clarify his point:

"The point of Kundera's book is that nothing really matters and you can do what you want because we are going to die soon anyway. My point in referencing the book is that the motion was going down to defeat anyway, since 3 out of 6 had declared their opposition, so the motion was destined to die and it didn't matter what I did."}

3 to 3 wd defeat

good to register my views; hv bn troubled by ¦. of residents

almost an existential fight

never as an elected official want to shove something down someone’s throat they don’t want

xxx do feel bad for Mr Poulter, told to apply

staff support, made concessions, and not even going to get a PH

shd hv just closed the door when the coach house policy

useless to say much more

this is not an application for xxx on E Island

even our coach house policy on the mainland, gives Mr Bailey to make xxx

eg if two on a block may not approve the next

said for all, is factually wrong; wdn’t be the case

this isn’t a Q of a coach house and a pristine

prop might get sold and new house w/ 20 bedrooms — that’s their choice

and it’s not re coach house, about permit

3rdly, unless you want to build a coach house anywhere, won’t benefit you

allow some identity, variety, ev including myself that coach house doesn’t really benefit me, xxx

is it the place for a coach house, no

nbrs are going to have to accomm coach houses

not more than seven coach houses in ten years ... this xxx

1. Call to Order [6:04]

Mayor: I am happy to announce that Council reappointed Denise Cook to the Lower Caulfeild Advisory Committee for a one year term.

Foster Parent Appreciation Day is October 20, 2016. Foster Parents make a difference to the lives of many children and families and we salute those who open their hearts and homes to keep children safe and help them to grow.

The Saturday, October 15 article in the Vancouver Sun on the Amalgamated Transit Union's job action told very little of the real story.

The District of West Vancouver (DWV) is surprised and disappointed with the strike. The District been negotiating in good faith and believes an agreement is close.

The DWV has been working with the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) since May 2016 to secure a collective agreement. During this round of bargaining, DWV has provided the ATU with a series of proposed packages intended to reach an agreement.

In this case, DWV has been very clear with the ATU that it is prepared to provide employees with a settlement comparable to the recent Coast Mountain Bus Company agreement. This includes the same general wage increase as well as these improvements:

¢ seniority accrual on sick leave an increased shift differential

¢ an increase to training instructor premiums

¢ improvements to training time provisions

¢ an increase to the uniform cleaning allowance.

The District is also prepared to provide maintenance staff with an ongoing labour market adjustment as well as:

¢ paid meal breaks for charge hands

¢ double time for hours over ten hours

¢ an increased tool allowance.

The ATU has also stated they would like to achieve employer-supported long-term disability premiums even though this change could cost the District an additional two per cent each year. This benefit is not offered by Coast Mountain Bus Company.

The District remains hopeful an agreement can be reached but is concerned this is not possible when the union is holding on to so many proposals that would adversely impact its ability to operate efficiently to meet the needs of the public. Such proposals include no contracting out, elimination of dispatch duties when needed after hours, increased ability to bank time, increased collective agreement language regarding access to driver service awards, and full pay to attend grievance meetings.

DWV values its relationship with all its employees and is committed to providing competitive and fair compensation to those staff in the ATU.

---- text supplied ------- WVHS Council presentation October 17, 2016

The WVHS is a non-profit, public-service organization, open to any individual, association, or professional group interested in celebrating the history of WV. Its purpose is to encourage an awareness and appreciation of West Vancouver’s past, record its history, support the Museum and Archives, and subsidize projects encouraging WV history and heritage.

The society was incorporated under the Society Act in 1980 under the auspices of the Rotary Club; its purpose was to collect and preserve archival material and artifacts. The Society was instrumental in securing the GLH as the site for the WV Museum and Archives, officially dedicated in 1992.

During the past several years the Society has been engaged mainly in three projects: publishing a series of books on the history of WV, 2. Measures to preserve and protect the Point Atkinson Lighthouse, and 3. recently, the West Van Stories (Laura Anderson).

Under the leadership of Jim Carter and Dave Barker, the Society has published a series of books on the history of West Vancouver, all authored by Francis Mansbridge.

1. Cottages to Community (2012), has been a great success and the 3000 copies printed are now now sold out.

2. Arrivals and Departures, the Ferries, and the People of Horseshoe Bay. 2014. We printed 1200 copies of which {fewer} than 100 remain.

3. We are now preparing a third book entitled: Dreams, Designs, and Development, the story of how West Vancouver came to be. The book is about former {councillor} and reeve Joe Leyland during the interwar years and especially on the negotiations that led to the building of the {Lions’} Gate Bridge, British Properties, and Park Royal. The {Leyland} family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, are currently engaged in helping to fund the book.

Our publishing efforts so far have netted $50,000, all of which we have given back to the community in the form of grants to preserve the history of West Van, the archives of the WV museum, and the library.


The Lighthouse was declared a national historic site in 1994. In 1996, Point Atkinson was one of the first light stations to be “automated when the Department of Fisheries & Oceans began divesting itself of Canadian lighthouses. In 1997, the District of West Vancouver took over the care of Point Atkinson’s grounds and the two houses onsite. All ancillary buildings on the light station fell into jurisdictional limbo. Since then, the District of West Vancouver and the West Vancouver Historical Society have taken the lead in ensuring the restoration and maintenance of these buildings, notably the Fog Alarm Building and the WWII Power House.

In the fall of 2014 The District of West Vancouver initiated a plan to PAINT the Point Atkinson Lighthouse, and requested support from the Historical Society and DFO. The Historical Society applied for a Heritage BC Legacy grant, and was awarded $8000 towards the project in June, 2015. Funding from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans was not forthcoming until July, 2016. The Historical Society subsequently arranged for grant extensions from Heritage BC, and the lighthouse was painted in mid-September. The funding delay resulted in a $4,000 cost overrun, for which our Society contributed $1,000 and the District the rest. The lighthouse looks resplendent now in a brand new red and white coat¦¦¦.in good time for Canada’s 150th birthday.

AND, to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017, the West Vancouver Historical Society and the Lighthouse Park Preservation Society are considering ways to offer guided tours of the heritage features of Lighthouse Park next summer. These would include guided walks on the natural history of the park, and guided tours of the light station.

there’s no part here car, no gathering place¦.

carve out a small space — corner of lot 9 in ctr; really think that’s imp
