Residents are gathering steam to oppose a proposed change to the intersection of Island View Road and Highway 17. For some, like the Michell family that runs its farming business on land surrounding Highway 17, a News Review article was the first they heard of the possibility of Island View intersection losing its lights. “It was like a nightmare,” said Vern Michell.

Inspired by his wife and his father, David Thompson wants to do MORE. “I want to make a difference for kids and education,” the North Saanich father said. “We all want our kids to get the best education possible.”

So he created Making Opportunities Rise in Education Foundation which is just shy of achieving its registered charity number. “I think providing resources to the programs will give kids equal opportunities,” Thompson said. His wife Wendy, who serves as vice-president for the founda-

Peninsula

Reflections

A look back at historical stories that shaped the Saanich Peninsula

Bringing 4&/Æ0Ħ&/ back from the brink For the Peninsula’s first inhabitants, the revival of their language is tied to its modernization Andrew Farris Contributor

Before English was ever heard here, the Saanich Peninsula’s first inhabitants spoke 4&/Æ0Ħ&/ (pronounced senchaw-sen). As UVic’s Lorna Williams explains, the language developed organically over thousands of years, and holds a very intimate and very tangible, connection to these lands. “We believe that all our [First Nations] languages emerged from the land. It is the land speaking.” The sounds expressed in 4&/Æ0Ħ&/ “come from the wind, from the water, from the trees, plants and from our ancestors,” she said. Many have no equivalent in English. Before Europeans’ contact at the end of the 18th century, 4&/Æ0Ħ&/, which means “Saanich talk,” was spread by trade and intermarriage across the Georgia Strait to Tsawwassen, the Olympic Peninsula, and the nearby Gulf Islands. On the Peninsula it was the dominant language, with perhaps 7,000 speakers here in 1852. The arrival of the Europeans had a profound impact upon these 4&/Æ0Ħ&/ speakers. Newly introduced European diseases dramatically reduced the population while the introduc-

tion of residential schools forced Saanich children to unlearn their language. This was an experience common to First Nations across Canada: Williams, herself a Lillooet speaker, recalls being subjected to severe and painful punishments for daring to speak her native tongue. By the end of the 20th century many First Nations languages had been brought to the brink of extinction, or had been forgotten altogether. UNESCO identifies 87 critically endangered lan-

“My son said to me, ‘Now that I have to text in 4&/Æ0Ħ&/ I have to think in it, and it feels alive now.’” – John Elliot guages in Canada, more in B.C. than any other province. 4&/Æ0Ħ&/ is among them. There were perhaps eight elders on the Peninsula a decade ago who could speak the language fluently and they worked doggedly to keep it alive. 4&/Æ0Ħ&/, however, is being pulled back from the brink. For the first time in memory, many Saanich indigenous youth are learning it. “When we have our gatherings I sit and I listen to these 20-, 30-year-olds giving lengthy speeches in their language. There’s a real sense among these young people that they are not going to let their language die,” Williams said. The seeds of this renais-

sance were sown in the 1970s when Dave Elliot created a 4&/Æ0Ħ&/ writing system (composed entirely of capital letters with the exception of a lower case s). Today his son, John Elliot, continues his work with the First Voices project. First Voices has created a number of online language teaching tools, including a smartphone app at that allows 4&/Æ0Ħ&/ youth to send text messages in their own native tongue. Elliot believes bringing his language into the “modern age” has ensured its survival on the Peninsula in the 21st century. “My son said to me, ‘Now that I have to text in 4&/Æ0Ħ&/, I have to think in it, and it really feels alive now.’” These efforts are bolstered by 22 students currently studying to become 4&/Æ0Ħ&/ teachers who will help pass their knowledge on to future generations. Elliot sees a bright future for 4&/Æ0Ħ&/. “We can go as big as our dreams go, and I dream big, so I want to have our own radio station and our TV station. It can be done. “For the longest time it felt like we were talking about a dead language and it doesn’t seem dead anymore,” he added. The tribal elders are certainly breathing a sigh of relief, but as Williams explained, this has significance for all of us. “Our languages are part of the history of these lands. Every settler that has come to these lands needs to know this is part of their heritage, too.” editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

“Old Katie” Ahousaht, as she popularly became known, was one of the elders who helped see the Saanich language through the difficult years of the early 20th century. Born in 1827 and married to Chief Jim of Saanich, she lived in Tseycum village until her death in 1934.

Trout added to Elk Lake

Thousands of trout added to Elk Lake, signalling start of fishing season

Seven-year-old May Galayugo dumps two rainbow trout out of her bucket and into Elk Lake as her mom, Noemi Abejuela, right, and grandmother, Norma Abejuela, watch. The three generations of women were with students from Lakeview Christian School in Saanich, helping stock the lake with catchable fish from the Vancouver Island Trout Hatchery in Duncan.

Jim Zeeben News staff

With sunlight sparkling off dozens of small cascades of water, a class of school children helped release thousands of rainbow trout into the waters of Elk Lake. The curious kids were each given a small bucket containing two fish and shown how to gently pour the trout into the shallow waters.

Jim Zeeben/News staff

For some of the students, there were mixed emotions as the small fish cautiously darted along the shore before escaping into the darker waters of the lake. “I don’t know if she’ll want to eat fish now,” said Noemi Abejuela, mother of seven-year-old May Galayugo, who named her two trout Pinky and Sally. The two were joined by May’s grandmother, Norma Abejuela, who said she had never experienced anything like this in her 73 years. About 2,000 fish were released in what was the first drop of the season, on March 8, by students from Lakeview Christian School, located

across the Pat Bay Highway from Elk Lake. A total of 7,000 of the catchable fish, each weighing at least 2.25-grams, will be set free into Elk Lake between now and June. Last year, one of the fish caught in the lake had grown to nine pounds. While the strain is known as Fraser Valley rainbow trout, the fish are from the Vancouver Island Trout Hatchery in Duncan. “The weather is warming up and … we’re busy getting Capital Regional District lakes ready for another great fishing season,” said hatchery manager Brian Martin. editor@saanichnews.com

North Saanich painter hopes to woo Dragons’ Den producers Dozens of entrepreneurs, artists and inventors attend Victoria audition Erin McCracken News staff

Armed with three artworks that he painted with a one-and-a-halfinch housepainter’s brush, North Saanich artist Nicholas Pearce hoped to impress producers from CBC’s Dragons’ Den TV show Saturday morning. “This is fun,” he said, surrounded by dozens of entrepreneurs and inventors waiting to audition at the Inn at Laurel Point in Victoria. They will learn within the next week and a half whether they’ll be invited to pitch their ideas to the dragons in front of the cameras in Toronto, beginning April 12. The competition is fierce. Between 3,500 and 4,500 people audition for the show every year. Of those 250 are invited for filming, though only half will appear on the show. A small number of presenters will come away with a deal with one or

Pearce hoped producers would be attracted by his offer to sell the dragons 10 of his paintings for $35,000. “I’m not asking them to invest in

my business since art is a notoriously poor business to invest in, but as a commodity for future investment in arts,” said Pearce, an artist for 30 years, who specializes in painting women. “[The dragons] buy the painting. They hold it for however long it takes for the price to go up and they

sell it,” he said. “Look at artists like [Vincent] Van Gogh, for instance. Van Gogh only sold one painting his entire career, and yet his works have made record profits in the art auction business.” Just when producers think they’ve seen every type of pitch imaginable, still more creative ideas come through their door. Season six contestants, who are now appearing on the show on Wednesday nights, stepped up their game. “There’s every kind of spectacle,” executive producer Tracie Tigh said, from an opera singer to fire eaters to medieval jousting. “Canada is rife with entrepreneurial talent.” This audition tour is also turning up some incredible talent, said associate producer Amy Bourne. The producers’ stop in Victoria proved no different. There were painters, musicians and inventors of several unique products, including a supply bag designed with pizza delivery people in mind. “I think going into season seven people sort of know what to expect a little bit more,” Bourne said. “So you see the pitchers come in with really high-calibre pitches.” emccracken@vicnews.com

Meeting tonight has big box focus The public will have its say tonight on a bylaw to allow larger retail stores in the Keating business area of Central Saanich. The official community plan currently limits stores in the traditional industrial area of the district to fewer than 53,800 square feet. With competition mounting from First Nations on the District of Central Saanich for commercial development, council passed a motion to delete a reference in the official community plan that restricts large footprint, or big box stores. The bylaw to remove that reference goes to public hearing tonight, March 21, at 6:30 p.m. in the fire training centre at municipal hall at 1903 Mount Newton X Rd. reporter@peninsulanews review.com

Vern Michell is among those concerned about the potential loss of lights at the Island View Road intersection with Highway 17. Michell Farm Retail Store will be the site of a meeting Wednesday, March 21 at 7 p.m. for those who share his concerns.

Give and take While neither Vern Michell nor John Stevenson is voicing opposition to the planned development on nearby Tsawout land, it does reflect on the proposed option of altering the Island View Road intersection. “There will be [no taxes] flowing to Central Saanich because it’s on First Nations land,” Stevenson pointed out. “Any of the secondary infrastructure, in terms of beyond Highway 17, any secondary roads that are required or necessitated by this, those costs will be borne by the district.”

“Apparently the Lochside Regional Trail had over a million folks,” he added. They’re hearing from people, from Victoria to Sidney, concerned about access to businesses and Island View Regional Park. “It affects a lot of people. We have a petition here that has over 1,000 names,” Michell said. They plan to turn the petition over to the District of Central Saanich, in hopes that council can use it “as a backing” to fight against losing the light at Island View. Residents are also concerned over emergency access to Island View and the Martindale Valley. “That would be very crucial if a house was on fire on Island View Road or the Martindale Valley,” said Michell, who also lives nearby. “If you want an ambulance, you don’t want a 10 minute delay.” Stevenson sent letters outlining the concerns to Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom, the District of Central Saanich, Saanich North and the

Elderly drivers get road test option Tom Fletcher Black Press

Drivers more than 80 years old who fail a computerized test of their mental ability will now be offered a road test before they have to surrender their licences.

Streets to Homes program granted funds to continue Streets to Homes has evolved from a pilot to a full-fledged program, thanks in part to two new grants. The two-year old initiative received a threeyear grant of $230,000 from the United Way and a one-time grant of $60,000 from the Victoria Foundation. To date, the program has helped 72 people who were previously homeless transition into private rental

housing by providing supports to both the tenant and landlord. A survey of people housed found 91 per cent of those living in apartments were still there six months later. The program has also housed another 14 individuals. Streets to Homes was launched by the Coalition to End Homelessness, but is now administrated by Pacifica Housing.

OUR VIEW

Our boys are back This hasn’t been the best year for the Peninsula Panthers. The club faced some tumult in late 2011 when they were handed back to league ownership. That change happened in late November and a couple of weeks later, the franchise was purchased by co-owners Pete Zubersky and John Wilson. Once those shakeups had settled, the Panthers didn’t fare overly well on the ice. The team occupied one of the bottom two spots on the four-team south Island division most of the season. As the playoffs approached and got underway, the Panthers suffered from injured players, including both goalies. Seven players were benched due to injuries by early February, causing the team to call up midget players to fill the void. The situation remained dire as playoffs continued: In the semifinals against the Saanich Braves, the Panthers were down by two games going into Game 5. But the local boys clawed their way back to win the series and moved on to the finals. The club’s performance looks strangely similar to last year’s turn of events in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League playoffs. In 2011, they fought their way back from a 3-0 game deficit to take home the cup in a riveting win against – guess who – the Victoria Cougars. The same team the Panthers play in these 2012 finals. Need it be said, we’d love to see our Panthers make it two years in a row. They’re earning themselves the veritable title of comeback kids by showing their hard work, especially when under pressure. There’s one thing we can do to help make it happen. Let’s support our Panthers on their quest for the trophy by cheering them on from behind the glass. The Peninsula Panthers play the Cougars tomorrow, March 22 at 7:15 p.m. in Esquimalt before returning to Panorama Recreation Centre for two home games: Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 6:30 p.m. What do you think?

of the “one per cent” have tried to “vocationalize” public education for a century, but the “people” have always “resisted.” Radical socialists aside, why would matching student aid to employment demand be unpopular with teachers? Education Minister George Abbott offered a clue during the lengthy debate over ending the teachers’ strike. Abbott noted that for every three teachers coming out of B.C. universities, there is currently only one job available. Certainly student debt is an issue worth discussing. And most would agree it’s easier to pay off loans if one can find a job in one’s field upon graduation. Should further subsidies go to soon-to-beunemployed teachers? No. Our education system trains too many people for what they want to do, rather than what the economy needs. And our economy definitely does not need more kids taught Marxist claptrap. Further to that, a tax on banks will be popular with some of today’s students, who protested against capitalism in the Occupy camps that will resume as the weather improves. Others will examine the idea and conclude that financial institutions will recover the tax from customers, and perhaps find ways to get the job done with fewer employees.

LETTERS

Two views on teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; extra-curricular work Wage boost demands donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help kids

Re: Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a new take on education (Letters, March 14) I wholeheartedly agree with Tara Houleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter. I too have memories of my school years, in particular of my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position as a music teacher, which in time entailed elementary, high school and university. I can remember high school students coming to our home weeknights and Saturday afternoons to get extra tutoring. It was later that I found out this was not done for profit, but out of the goodness of his heart and his concern for wanting to see a student develop a skill in which they were acutely interested. I can remember the entire high school band throwing him a surprise impromptu barbecue party in our back yard when they heard about his upcoming departure from the city. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the pay schedule information these days as to

whether teacher still (they used to) have the option of a salary divided over a 12 month period, or limited to the school term, but in either case, it was understood that it only took some common sense and budgeting to live comfortably. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so tired of the teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rhetoric, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing this for the kids.â&#x20AC;? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing this for yourselves out of sheer greed because you know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the parents right where you want them, and you know how to hurt them. News flash: A 16 per cent raise over three years in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy is outrageous. I have an aquaintance, a teacher, who once invited me along on a fishing trip with two of his teacher friends. When I mentioned him taking a holiday to go fishing, I was corrected with â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Pro-D day.â&#x20AC;? It seems the teachers want and want and want without any regard for the average working class. Which brings me to agree with Margaret Jesticoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter (Others

Readers respond: Bentall Opry hugely successful Thanks so much for the great article on the upcoming March 23 Barney Bentall concert (Barneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back, The Arts, March 9), a fundraiser for Brentwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music in the Park. I would like to make one correction though â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you reported Barney Bentallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Cariboo Opry raised over $3,700 combined for the Sidney Lions Food Bank and the Mustard Seed Food Bank. In fact, we have raised over $37,000 in five years. We are already talking with Barney about next

lucky just to have a job today, Letters, March 14). As stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The economy is such that many employees have had their wages frozen, and indeed consider themselves lucky to still have a job.â&#x20AC;? Do the teachers have my support? Not in this lifetime. They should be lucky to have a job. Unfortunately many of them still will be on the payroll three years from now, when this nonsense starts all over again. Leon Bateman Saanichton

Teachers offer more than just curriculum Re: Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a new take on education (Letters, March 14) A) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awesome that the writer is aware and acknowledges the astonishing array of amazing out-of-school activities teachers offer to aspiring students yet she is not appreciative; she is angry at the teachers because her daughter is apathetic about

swimming due to a cancelled swim meet. Our childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiences are going to be a lot more limiting with the passage of Bill 22. Here is a golden opportunity to teach children about human rights, respecting and supporting volunteers or voting for a judicious government, for example. B) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baffling that the author is bitter. Teachers are being brazenly bullied with belittling Liberal ads and a bizarre Bill 22. (This strike is about the declining quality of education in B.C.) Striking teachers being blunt rather than benevolent will benefit our students. C) The writer asks to change the discussion to find a new way to keep our kids in the classroom. Teachers are in the classroom, working with students, doing what they are contracted to do. Many teachers also thrive on extracurricular activities. It is a highlight to coach, co-ordinate, collaborate, counsel, conduct or

SBA still has a place in Sidney As I see things, the Sidney Business Association is a self-supporting entity operating with an inordinate number of volunteer hours. It would appear to me to be an organization with a singular vision that raises its own funds and ploughs those moneys back into

promoting Sidney as a destination and a place for consumers to spend their money. They do that by publishing thousands of Sidney Business Guides annually, they beautify and promote Sidney through their banner program, they publish monthly the Beacon, and then there is the Sidney Summer Market, one of the largest in western Canada and one that is visited by thousands on Thursday evenings during the summer and which I know inspires additional visits during the year. It has inspired me and mine. All

choreograph. It is crucial to communicate that even though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customary for schools to have countless extracurricular activities, (graduation dances, ski trips, cross country meets, track meets, etc.) they are run by volunteer teachers. These activities occur in addition to planning, preparing and teaching. Teachers typically put in a 50-60 hour work week. The volunteer activities are scheduled between staff meetings, committee meetings, parent-teacher meetings, behind the scenes activities such as ordering, cataloguing, maintaining learning resources and supplies (to name a few). In closing, parents, you are welcome to be A) active, not only to B) bake, buy and often C) co-ordinate the school fundraisers as you always do thanks to budget cuts, but to also C) contribute in other ways and sponsor a school club or coach.

of this and more they do with no cost to the taxpayer and minimal cost to the business community. As I understand, a business improvement association would be reinventing the wheel and would receive funding through forced taxation of the business community. That begins to sound like taxation without representation. With the SBA if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like what they are representing I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to support them. Do I have that option with the BIA? Bill Buckley president, CARE Funeral Services

The

Cats back come

Peninsula Panthers co-owner Pete Zubersky is scratching his head after Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League schedule makers had the Panthers play the first game of the league final series just 20 hours after finishing off the Saanich Braves in the semis. The Cougars drew first blood and won easily by an 8-0 count Sunday. “It was unfair,” Zubersky said. “We spoke up, but nobody would listen. It is a shame that we were forced to play with no rest while the Cougars sat on the sidelines for a week. It is a travesty.” Trevor Yee’s minor penalty for slashing was one of the few incidental penalties by the Panthers, who were called for kneeing, spearing and butt-ending among 20 minutes of penalties in the first period alone. “We have to ignore the refs,” Yee said. “We can’t let [the refs] get in our heads like [Sunday]. One bad penalty and we were all over

Cat fight continues ■ Game 1 – Panthers lose 8-0 at Archie Browning arena ■ Game 2 – Thursday, March 22, 7:15 p.m. at Archie Browning arena ■ Game 3 – Friday, March 23, 7:30 p.m. at Panorama Recreation Centre ■ Game 4 – Saturday, March 24, 6:30 p.m. at Panorama Recreation Centre ■ Game 5* – Sunday, March 25, 7:30 p.m. at Archie Browning arena ■ Game 6* – Saturday, March 31, 8:30 p.m. at Panorama Recreation Centre ■ Game 7* – to be determined *if necessary

Braves 3-1 in semifinals games, the Panthers looked elimination in the eye before coming away the winners. On Friday Yee led scoring with three in handing the Braves an 8-5 beating and setting the stage for

Game 7 the following day. In the dramatic final, supersniper Joe Densmore scored twice before the second frame ended and the teams went to the dressing room tied. With a little more than five minutes left in the sec-

ond overtime period, the Panthers’ Ryan Hunter scored from close in to lift the team into the VIJHL finals. Zubersky said the Panthers’ break now is a welcome one. “We have a couple days to rest so the ice will be a bit more even on Thursday for Game 2, you can count on that. This is not the way to showcase our league at this time of year. This is the league finals, this was not right.” sports@peninsulanewsreview.com

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

KELSET first to benefit

B.C. Ferries welcomes April with fare hike Fare fees for B.C. Ferries are going up again. Passenger and vehicle fares will rise by 4.15 per cent on average on all routes across the fleet effective April 1. That means travelling between Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen will cost $14.84 per passenger and $49.21 per vehicle, plus HST and fuel surcharge. The ferry corporation says fare increases are required due to the rising cost of operating and capital expenditures coupled with lower than anticipated traffic levels.

Her involvement, coupled with a lifealtering event two years ago, inspired Thompson to build a foundation dedicated to feeding the education system. Two years ago he lost his father, who Thompson describes as “a man who would give you the shirt off his back.” “I found out things about him I had no idea about,” he said. “I thought, it’s time to give back and make a difference.” He didn’t want to alter one life, but affect a selection of people. “Children are our future and the future is right now, it starts today,” he said. He plans to raise funds to go directly to individual schools. The first school to benefit from the foundation would be KELSET, where he’s already made the connections with the parent advisory council and administration. “The teachers and the PAC will decide where the money needs to go,” Thompson said. Right now he knows the Breakfast for Learning and the Forgotten Lunch programs are seeing an increase in demand and could use a cash influx. “Kids are being sent to school who haven’t even had breakfast,” he said. “All that money being used to fund those programs is coming from wherever [PAC] can get it.” He sees larger projects on the horizon, including scholarships for lower Island students. “That’s really impacting a student’s life forever,” he said. “I want to build up to where we can give on an ongoing basis.” Learn more about the MORE foundation online at www.more foundation.ca. reporter@peninsulanews review.com

NEWS REVIEW

Police in Saanich criticized for not ticketing speeding 100-year-old News story prompts nationwide response Kyle Slavin News staff

A flood of criticism about the story of a 100-year-old driver who wasn’t fined, although he was caught speeding, left Saanich police defending one of their own. The traffic safety officer was

y unda

conducting speed enforcement on Cordova Bay Road on March 6. An incoming vehicle was clocked travelling 50 km/h in a school zone. When the car was pulled over, the officer found the driver was a centenarian with a spotless driving record. He was let off with a warning. The story was picked up by other news outlets across Canada, including the Toronto Star. Sgt. Dean Jantzen said the inci-

dent garnered a lot more public attention than expected. Police received comments in support of the officer and heard from many people who questioned why a ticket wasn’t given, even though the senior was clocked speeding in a school zone. “We are always, always mindful that each and every officer on the streets has discretionary authority in situations such as that,” Jantzen said. “It’s difficult to armchair

Ont. resident, who read about the incident in the Star. The police department’s response, posted on its website, stated the officer has to “weigh the totality of the circumstances and establish an effective means of correcting or preventing similar behaviour. “Likely taken into consideration in this case was the driver’s 84 years of clean driving and the officer’s recognition that a ticket with a fine was perhaps not required to correct the driving behaviour,” Const. Matt Cawsey wrote on the website. “The purpose [of traffic enforcement] is not punitive, but preventative and corrective.” kslavin@saanichnews.com

Babe’s Honey co-owners Brendan Bull, front right, Brandon Schwartz, left, and Kevin Van Herwaarden, back, hold bottles of their honey, available for sale at Galey Farms on Blenkinsop Road.

Former employees bring Babe’s back Bees housed in Saanichton as honey tradition continues Natalie North News staff

and May 19, 2010, Pitcher told clients they owed money to the Receiver General of Canada and used the funds to finance either Babe’s Honey Farm or his accounting firm. Joiner Sales Corp. of Abbotsford submitted a winning bid and took possession of the farm’s assets last May, but before the auction took place, Joiner sold the bees and the brand to Schwartz, for an undisclosed price. Babe’s is experiencing about a 12 per cent death rate among bees. With recent losses on Vancouver Island of upwards of 30 per cent, Schwartz is hopeful for the season ahead. “This year we’re going to have a really good crop,” Schwartz said. “The bees are in really good shape this year.” The public response to the Babe’s revival has been “overwhelmingly positive,” he added. “That’s a common comment we get: ‘We missed Babe’s Honey and we’re glad you’re back.’ … We’re not looking at the past now. We’re looking to the future.” Babe’s Honey (bottled and in bulk), soap and candles are available daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Galey Farms store, 4150 Blenkinsop Rd. Babe’s vinegar will soon be added to the list of products available. nnorth@saanichnews.com

A familiar name is creating buzz around Saanich and the Peninsula. After a tumultuous year in the spotlight for criminal allegations against its former owner, Babe’s Honey is back on the bright side. In fact, the historic local brand never really went away. The honey farm’s former operations manager, Brandon Schwartz, along with friends and former employees, bought the Babe’s Honey trademark and recently relaunched the brand “We never stopped [working],” Schwartz said. “We just kept on going, but there was a massive amount of work to do. We weren’t exactly sure how things were going to take shape so we tried to keep things nice and quiet. We figured when we were ready, we’d let everybody know what we’ve been doing.” The new Babe’s team – Kevin Van Herwaarden, Brendan Bull, Schwartz’ father Bob Schwartz and queen bee breeder Bob Mitchell – have 170 bee colonies 0 on the Saanich PeninE -4:0 d US2:30 Roa O sula. r H th u EN r. 24 rbo Babe’s is operating OPy, Ma 6 Ha da 32 from a bee-tight buildtur - 2 Sa 308 ing (no bees can fly # out, and no unwanted bees can come in) in Saanichton, as well as in the retail space at Galey Farms in Saanich, where their products TOP FLOOR OCEAN VIEW suite in the Miraloma, a high-end West are sold.

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

See and be seen 2x8 for cycling safety Although cycling is great fun, it also involves some danger. In North America nearly 800 cyclists die in collisions with motor vehicles each year, and another 24,000 suffer injuries. You can reduce these dangers by following some simple cycling safety tips. Wear a helmet and wear it properly, not perched on the back of your head. During the day, wear fluorescent clothing and, at night, a functional headlight and reflective stripes on your clothing, helmet and bike will help ensure you are visible from all sides. Flashing red lights which can be attached to your bicycle saddle, backpack or helmet are an excellent and inexpensive way of increasing visibility. Wear sunglasses with UV protection to shield your eyes from the sun’s damaging rays. Remember to replace them at night, with impact-resistant clear sports goggles to protect the eyes from dust, dirt, gravel, and rocks. Contact lenses under protective wrap-around glasses are convenient for those who can wear them. They provide superior peripheral vision. For those who cannot wear contact lenses, Optometrists can provide prescription sunglasses or prescription inserts for cycling goggles. One of your best defenses against bike accidents is sharp vision – so have your eyes examined regularly. Remember that your bicycle is a vehicle and that you should operate it in a responsible and courteous manner.
