Cardiovascular responses to a series of cycle ergometer exercise tests on a frictionless cycle ergometer were compared in a group of 29 normal subjects and a group of 14 patients with essential hypertension. The results were compared in two ways. First, the cardiac responses (heart rate and stroke volume) were expressed as percent of values at rest and analyzed in a multivariate fashion. In addition, the absolute values of these responses were compared by two-way analysis of variance. The results were essentially the same. The major differences between the two groups occurred in the following responses: The increase in heart rate (percent of rest value) was significantly greater in hypertensive patients than in normal subjects (7.2 +/- 4.8 vs. 3.5 +/- 2.8 percent, p less than 0.02); the increase in stroke volume (percent of rest value) was significantly less in hypertensive patients than in normal subjects (13.4 +/- 5.8 vs. 18.8 +/- 9.2 percent, p less than 0.05). These differences appear to be related to the extent of subclinical myocardial dysfunction in the hypertensive patients.West Vancouver is in the midst of a steady rise in anti-gentrification protests.
Starting in 2015, West Vancouver saw a series of protests against the new condo towers sprouting up on the city's west side.

But a new wave of anti-gentrification protests have erupted in the last several months, targeting an upscale housing development in the city's north end.
The New Forest Green development has been highly controversial, with residents arguing that it will displace low-income residents and the right-wing National Citizens Party (NPC) asking the city to not approve the development.
Wendy and Peter Farabee, who live across the street from the New Forest Green development, now say they're going to get more involved in the fight against the project.
Farabee started a Facebook group opposing the project, which has so far attracted more than 900 members.
