More barriers en route to Malahat Drive Concrete lane dividers slated for Trans-Canada Highway in Langford

Entrepreneur and navy wife Cynthia Cummings stands outside the Department of National Defense property on Rosebank Road in Colwood, the soon to be starting point for a new, private bus service to CFB Esquimalt.

Krista Siefken Black Press

The province will spend $8 million adding 5.4 kilometres of extra concrete medians on the Malahat Drive this year. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom announced Thursday that when construction is complete, more than 40 per cent of the Malahat will be separated with median barriers. Five sections of the corridor will receive the barriers, with construction work scheduled to start this month and finish in the fall. Safety improvements include intersection upgrades at Finlayson Arm Road, Shawnigan Lake Road and the Malahat village, plus additional enforcement pullout areas, an advanced weather advisory system, and improved lighting, signage and roadside delineation. The improvements were motivated by a community-driven effort to reduce crashes on the busy corridor, plus a safety review conducted by the ministry and engineer experts. Lekstrom said the restricted corridor means the 1.4 km median being put in north of Finlayson Arm Road will require removal of a section of passing lane “There is some give and take, but immediately following the median barrier placement, there is some passing lane as well, so I think it will work,� Lekstrom said. “It’s really focused on safety.� PLEASE SEE: More safety measures, Page A6

From Blue Boats to Blue Buses Business to offer direct bus service between Colwood and CFB Esquimalt Kyle Wells News staff

A Colwood entrepreneur is launching a private bus service to pick up where the impending cancellation of the military Blue Boat has left off. The “Blue Bus� shuttle service will transport people between the Colwood location of the Military Family Resource Centre on Rosebank Road, and the CFB Esquimalt front gates starting May 1. Buses are scheduled to leave near the military resource centre Monday to Friday for three morning runs before 7 a.m. Return trips will leave from near CFB

Esquimalt at 4:15 and 4:45 p.m. Blue Bus developer Cynthia Cummings has a husband and son in the navy who use the Blue Boat daily. With the upcoming cancellation of the service at the end of April, she said it only seemed logical that somebody provide an alternative. “I’m doing this because we are a military family,� said Cummings, who lives in Belmont Park. “I’m doing it for the military, just to ensure that our military community can continually, comfortably go to work.� Cummings said she thinks of herself as a logistical coordinator putting together a needed service. She isn’t expecting to make a profit and is trying to keep the fare price as low as possible. Ultimately, demand will drive service levels, and if it turns out that there is no demand, Cummings said her investment is minimal enough that she can shut the business down without much of a loss.

Solution.

“If I last a month, or six months, I can stop at any time,� said Cummings. “I just figured let’s just do it. Let’s see what happens.� She is selling the Blue Bus service as convenient, reliable, specific to the needs of the military personnel and a solution to get more cars off the “Colwood crawl.� The project has fallen together quickly for Cummings, who is working with Wilson’s Transportation in Victoria to organize buses and drivers. She has already heard plenty of interest from military families and expects the service to be well used. “I think it’s a great idea,� said her husband, Warrant Officer Wayne Cummings. “I think the military is very keen on something like this or anything, because they don’t have a viable option, they don’t have a solution. This alleviates that issue.� PLEASE SEE: Bus to fill gap, Page A4

Community gardens seek green thumbs Colwood-based plots ready for growing season Charla Huber News staff

Three community gardens in Colwood are looking for people who want to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty. Between the Westshore Teaching gardens, Pilgrim community garden and the Coast Collective gardens, about 40 plots are ripe for the picking. The Pilgrim community garden, off Painter Road in Colwood, is run solely by its gardeners. “We are a volunteer group, we don’t advertise it because we are busy gardening,” said Pilgrim plot co-ordinator Maureen Cue. “This is a garden that a lot of people in the community started up. Now it runs on its own and doesn’t require support.” The Pilgrim community garden has about 10 plots for newcomers. The garden has 40 plots, five of which are communal plots containing items such as raspberries and rhubarb. There are 17 families who are members of the garden. The Pilgrim garden is the oldest community garden on the West Shore. The land for the garden is donated by the Pilgrim United Church. “It’s a gift to the community for people who don’t have land to garden at their homes,” said Elaine Hooper, chair of the church

council. “We all love to know the land is being used this way.” The church considers the land to be a gift to the community. Gardeners are responsible for covering the water bill. “If places don’t give land, then there are no community gardens,” Cue said, expressing gratitude to the church. “What a garden needs is land, labour and water.” Capital Families Association started the Pilgrim garden in 1997. With the grant money the agency was able to bring in 80 tonnes of composted soil. “At the time it was used as an occasional parking lot,” said David Stott, former project coordinator of Capital Families. “We basically built the beds on top of the gravel. We started adding mulch a couple years later. “I think it is a wonderful garden and I am so pleased it is doing so well.” All of the gardens ask gardeners to pitch in additional time to help with communal areas. The Pilgrim community and Coast Collective gardens don’t have specific guidelines, but the teaching garden, off Sooke Road, asks its gardeners to donate about two hours per week for various tasks.

Garden plots ■ Pilgrim community garden: Contact Maureen Cue at 250-479-1156. Ten plots available at 3319 Painter Rd. ■ Westshore teaching garden: Call Candace Thompson at 250-642-2595. About 20 plots are available at 2139 Sooke Rd. ■ Coast Collective garden: Contact Annabelle Baxter at annabellebaxter73@ gmail.com. Four plots and communal areas available at 3221 Heatherbell Rd.

“Every summer the garden is busy and active,” said Candace Thompson, Westshore Training and Learning Centre agricultural consultant. “The plots are super fertile but small, so although they grow a lot of food they don't easily support many people working in them at a time.”

Coast Collective garden

Westshore teaching garden The Westshore teaching garden is run by the Westshore Learning Centre. While the numbers haven’t been tallied for this year, there is speculation about 20 plots will be open at its Sooke Road location.

Charla Huber/News staff

Maureen Cue, plot co-ordinator at Pilgrim community garden, is looking for new gardeners this year. Pilgrim, Coast Collective garden and the Westshore teaching garden have open plots.

The Coast Collective garden at the Havenwood property in Colwood has four individual plots but the majority of the garden is communal and runs on the honour system. “We share what people plant, it’s a free, shared experience,” said co-ordinator Annabelle Baxter. “This place is about community and teaching.”

Craigflower bridge replacement delayed until 2013 Kyle Slavin News staff

Plans to build the new Craigflower bridge have been put on hold untill next year, after municipal engineers couldn’t achieve all permits required in the tight timeframe. Jim Hemstock, Saanich’s manager of transportation, said the initial plan to begin construction on June 1 was aggressive. Now it’s considered unachievable. “There are environmental and

archaeological processes (still outstanding) that are long and complicated,” he said. Last week, staff decided the project would be delayed by either six months or one year. “We’re still considering the pros and cons of summer and winter building,” Hemstock said. “We know that the two big drivers that effect the public would be Christmas shopping and getting kids to school.” From the engineering side of things, however, the delays are

more complicated. Saanich and View Royal share responsibility for the bridge, although Saanich is taking the lead in terms of its planning. Both municipalities need to ensure construction doesn’t impact the salmon or herons that call the Gorge Waterway home. On the archaeology side, two different permits are required to build on the sensitive lands near the historic Craigflower schoolhouse on the Saanich side, a former native burial ground.

“We don’t have the permits. Putting (the project out for tenders) now, not knowing if you can proceed is not a fiscally responsible things to do,” Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard said. “Uncertainty usually leads to higher prices. … It’s better we spend taxpayers’ money wisely and do it a bit later, than rush to get it done.” An announcement on whether bridge construction will begin in January 2013 or the next fisheries window of July 2013, isn’t expected to be made until

August. The $10.7-million Craigflower Bridge reconstruction project is funded mostly by federal gas tax money. The existing wood trestle, twolane bridge is 79 years old and funnels about 18,000 vehicles per day between View Royal, Saanich and Esquimalt. It’s slated to be replaced by a modern three-lane bridge, complete with bike lanes and wide sidewalks. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Bus to fill gap where boats leave off Continued from Page A1

Cynthia Cummings said the Blue Bus service — blue in name only, unlike the outgoing Blue Boats — will have the capacity to transport about 320 people in the morning. Between 300 and 500 people use the Blue Boat daily. With two buses per run, and three runs each weekday morning, and two back in the afternoon, Cummings said her company can fill the gap. Parking for the service will be available for military personnel just inside the gates of the Department of National Defense property at the end of Rosebank Road. CFB Esquimalt spokesperson Lt. Michael McWhinnie con-

firmed military members can use that parking for the Blue Bus. The area is being offered to for personnel who are carpooling and the bus service initiative fits that mandate. “While CFB Esquimalt is discussing a number of transportation options with other parties, we are pleased to see a private initiative taken that may help to relieve the traffic congestion in the local area,” McWhinnie said. Alternative parking will be available in the lower parking bowl of the West Shore Parks and Recreation property, near Bear Mountain arena. The Blue Bus will swing up through that parking lot to pick up commuters. After that the buses will go directly to CFB Esquimalt, with no other stops.

“I think word will travel very quickly, which is great. That’s what we need,” Cummings said. “I think (the Blue Bus) just gives you a good option.” A business licence from the City of Colwood is in the works and all transportation licensing comes through Wilson’s Transportation. The Department of National Defense is not involved but has been informed of the intent of the business. The service will be available to all military personnel, families, civilian workers or any members of the public. Riders will be able to purchase either a monthly pass at $60, a biweekly pass at $35 or a weekly pass at $20, plus HST. For more information visit www.bluebusshuttle.com.

All are welcome and we look forward to your attendance.

Diesel spill hits edge of Goldstream park Edward Hill News staff

Diesel fuel spilled into the edge of Goldstream park last Thursday after a tractor-trailer punctured a fuel tank on Sooke Lake Road in Langford. It appears the driver was trying to turn a 40-foot tractor-trailer to the right from Humpback Road onto Sooke Lake Road. Emergency officials said when he couldn’t make the turn, he reversed the truck, backed into a curb and possibly a sign, and ruptured a fuel tank. “It looks like he was trying to take a right hand turn ... and due to the size of the vehicle, he had difficulty maneuvering and caught his diesel saddle tank on the curb,” said Langford assistant fire chief Scott Davidson. Emergency officials estimate about 30 gallons (115 litres) escaped onto the road and flowed toward Goldsteam park property that abuts that intersection. Davidson said a quick acting Capital Region water services employee from the nearby reservoir facility was laying out absorbent pads when fire crews arrived at around 2:30 p.m. “Approximately 30 gallons of diesel is unaccounted for, so that would be on the road and in the soil,” Davidson said. “It pen-

With a tree and power pole in the way, this 40-foot tractor-trailer struggled to make the turn onto Sooke Lake Road. It punctured a fuel tank on a curb and lost about 30 gallons of diesel, some of which flowed into earth on the edge of Goldstream park. etrated approximately 10 feet into the soil, but plenty of distance so it didn’t affect the creek at all. “It’s more inconvenient for the neighbours,” he noted. “It’s 30 gallons on the ground, but at least it didn’t get to the Goldstream creek area.” That same creek suffered a disastrous gasoline and diesel spill nearly one year ago. West Shore RCMP and fire crews evacuated Ma Miller’s Pub and a convenience store. Nobody was removed from nearby homes

and no one was injured in the incident. A CRD hazmat crew and mobile command centre also arrived to help with the cleanup. Maria Madison, a resident of Shaylee Place, waited behind the fire tape to get into her nearby home with five children. Residents of Shaylee Place were allowed to cross the fire tape, but only by foot. Firefighters circled the truck with absorbent booms and crews from Victoria Contracting and

Municipal Maintenance spread layer upon layer of sand over the roadway. On Friday, Langford engineering acting manager Michelle Mahovlich said the City hauled away about one dump truck worth of contaminated soil from the shoulder of Sooke Lake Road. An environmental consultant will test the soil for the level of diesel contamination, which will determine where the soil can be dumped. Mahovlich said Lang-

ford plans to bill the trucking company for the work. It’s unclear why such a large vehicle was driving on Humpback or Sooke Lake roads. Humpback is especially narrow and windy. The truck bore Ontario plates, and Davidson suspects the driver was lost. “I’m sure he has probably taken a wrong turn, this being a residential neighbourhood,” Davidson said. —with files from Charla Huber

Command changes in store for navy Erin McCracken News staff

The reins of the Royal Canadian Navy on the West Coast will change hands this summer. After two years at the helm, Rear Admiral Nigel Greenwood will hand over command of naval operations to Commodore Bill Truelove at a changeof-command ceremony scheduled for early June.

Truelove, who will be promoted to the rank of rear admiral, is currently serving in Kabul, Afghanistan. Greenwood is set to retire from navy life. Commodore Peter Ellis, who commands the Pacific fleet of naval ships, is also moving on this summer. He will be promoted to the rank of rear admiral and will become deputy commander of the Canadian Expeditionary

Force Command in Ottawa. His replacement will be navy Capt. Scott Bishop, who is coming from a command position in Halifax. Defence Minister Peter MacKay announced several promotions and appointments for senior military personnel on March 27 and applauded them for being "strong institutional leaders."

Tragically Hip to headline at West Shore rec Charla Huber News staff

Get ready to get fully completely blown away by Canadian icons The Tragically Hip at West Shore Parks and Recreation, this July. The Hip are headlining the Rock the Shores concert on July 13, along with Sam Roberts Band, and Victoria’s own Current Swell and Jets Overhead. “It was born out of conversations with The Tragically Hip and their managers. They wanted to do a show on Vancouver Island,” said Nick Blasko, director and co-owner of Atomique Productions.

During talks with the Hip, Blasko said the band was hoping to perform in an outdoor show, and after scouting locations, West Shore Parks and Recreation was deemed the best fit. “The fields are amazing, they are unobstructed fields and have natural changes in elevations. They provide incredible sight lines,” said Blasko, noting that the location is far enough from residential areas to host such an event. The venue has a capacity of 12,000 people. This is first time The Tragically Hip will play on the West Shore since it performed at Western Speedway in 1993, which many

More safety measures from Langford to Shawnigan Continued from Page A1

Cowichan Valley resident Chelsey Dollman was one of the safety advocates who played a significant role in pushing for the improvements after she created a petition and Facebook group about the issue. Ironically, she was almost in a collision on the Malahat Thursday morning as she travelled to the news conference. “Someone had stopped dead in the fast lane to turn left,” Dollman said. “They’re starting at the end of April with the minimal construction, and then through June, July and August is when we’ll see the actual barriers go in, so everything should be done by this fall,” she said. “I’m really impressed with the speed they’ve put into this.” Malahat Volunteer Fire Department Chief Rob Patterson agreed. “The infrastructure that’s

going to be in place this year is going to help the motoring public over the Malahat,” he said. “From a first responder’s standpoint, we see these crossovers far too often. It’s going to improve safety for each and every one of us. “I don’t have to worry about cars crossing as often as they have in the past in the areas where we have had these time and time again.”

New Malahat barriers • 2 km between Tunnel Hill and Aspen Road (road will also be widened) • 1.4 km north of Finalyson Arm Road (northbound passing lane removed) • 1 km south of Shawnigan Lake Road (road will also be widened) • 500 m between Spencer Road and just north of the new Leigh Road overpass • 400 m north of West Shore

Parkway (road will also be widened)

Other safety improvements • Installation of a flashing beacon and intersection lighting, plus construction of a northbound acceleration lane at Finlayson Arm Road • Construction of a southbound acceleration lane at Shawnigan Lake Road • Construction of new acceleration and deceleration lanes, and enhanced signage, at Malahat Village (where the Malahat Mountain Inn is located) • Additional measures to prevent southbound access at Summit Lookout, Arbutus rest area and the Rock Cut view point • Additional enforcement pullout areas, enhanced lighting, an advanced weather warning system and improved signage along the entire corridor

girls,” she said. After an interview via video chat with pageant co-ordinatators, Anderson geared up to compete with 34 teens from across the province. While she didn’t earn the provincial title, she was awarded a regional title of Miss Teen Victoria. Fourteen contestants earned regional titles during the event on March 3 and 4. “I learned a lot there about etiquette. I learned how to sit, how to stand, how to walk and how to talk,” Anderson explained. Competitors spent nearly a day learning how to walk with elegance and grace. “Now I walk with my shoulders back and cross my legs as I step, but still natural and flowing.” For this year, Anderson is looking to set up appearances across Greater Victoria at community events such as parades.

Miss Teen Victoria has been awarded to a Langford woman. Belmont secondary Grade 12 student Brandi Anderson, 18, was recently crowned after competing at the Miss Teen B.C. pageant in Vancouver in early March. After being awarded with the regional title, Anderson has secured a place to compete in the Miss Teen Canada pageant in Toronto, July 14 to 22. Anderson admits this national event is a bit overwhelming — the Miss Teen B.C. was her first pageant she had competed in. The event entailed modelling in a bathing suit and an evening gown, and public speaking. “I was nervous, I was definitely out of my comfort zone,” Anderson said. After watching pageants on

Payday loan company ordered to repay customers News staff

The Cash Store and Instaloans have been ordered to repay customers who were illegally overcharged on payday loan cash cards. Edmonton-based Cash Store Financial Inc., which has The Cash Store and Instaloans branches in Victoria, Esquimalt, Saanich and Colwood, was the focus of a Consumer Protection

B.C. investigation in 2010. The inquiry revealed customers were being billed more than the allowed maximum of $23 per $100 borrowed on cash cards. The company was ordered in November 2010 to stop the practice and issue refunds. Cash Store Financial appealed, but Consumer Protection B.C. said last week that much of the original compliance order has been upheld. The agency says any clients

who have been overcharged since Nov. 1, 2009 must receive refunds within a 90-day period. The money-lending company continues to dispute the order. “We remain of the view that we are not an issuer of cash cards and we are not therefore required to issue any refunds in the manner directed by Consumer Protection B.C.,” Cash Store Financial stated. For more information, see www.consumerprotectionbc.ca.

End of Blue Boat drives innovation A

lthough many commuting military members might disagree, cancellation of the Blue Boat service in some ways could be a good thing. An ambitious entrepreneur in Colwood is organizing the “Blue Bus” shuttle service from near the Military Family Resource Centre building in Colwood to CFB Esquimalt. Although not as picturesque or efficient as motoring across the harbour in a boat (and not free), services such as this are what is needed in the face of defence spending cutbacks and few foreseeable solutions to easing traffic on Island Highway or the Trans-Canada Highway. Although the Department of National Defence isn’t involved, the Blue Bus service wouldn’t be able to roll without ready-made parking on DND property behind the resource centre. The daily cost to military commuters is less than a B.C. Transit fare, so it will be interesting to see the uptake of the service, or if military commuters will opt for cars once the boat is out of the picture at the end of this month. At least the effort will kick the door open for the private sector to take a shot at moving people between the West Shore and Victoria. Thankfully, CFB Esquimalt is also open to private boat operators shuttling personnel between the Colwood and Esquimalt sides of the base, which could be a precursor to an eventual civilian boat shuttle between the Royal Bay area and Victoria. In the meantime, most commuters will have to be content sticking with driving or taking B.C. Transit — after last week’s federal budget remained mute on matching $7.5 million promised by the province, fixing up the E&N rail line remains as elusive as ever. As a consolation prize for harried commuters, Saanich and View Royal announced the closure and construction of a new Craigflower bridge is deferred until January or July 2013. Good money is probably on a summer closure, giving engineers more than a full year to figure out how to get kids and nearby residents over the Gorge Waterway during construction. What do you think?

time seems ripe for an in-depth enquiry into that possibility, conducted in a public forum separate from “elect me” politics. The same goes for the problem of cooling the hatred in some parts of the Islamic world. Arguably the most practical startup strategy would be to give life-saving, comfort-making support to some of the haters. This could mean exploring foreign aid projects that actually yield material benefits, applying them in a co-ordinated way to such halffriendly Islamic nations as Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and cautiously extending them into more hostile places. More easily said than done, sure. I don’t pick up even a hint that Western political leaders are making any effective moves to heal the hurtful spots in their policies; but luckily for us, such private agencies as the Aga Khan Development Network, a creative and humane Islamic agency, are serving as pathfinders. In Pakistan an Aga Khan project has involved communities in a water, sanitation and community development program that has reduced intestinal disease by 25 per cent. It is one of many such enterprises. I doubt that current Western politicians are paying attention, but the hopeful scenario is that a new array of leaders will carry forward such initiatives on a large scale. gemort@pacificcoast.net —G.E.

LETTERS Science academy for Colwood school I have just come back from attending the open house for the two new high schools planned for the West Shore. One of the questions asked on the survey participants were asked to fill out was “What specialty would you like to see encouraged in each of the schools? ie: what type of academy?” My idea is to have the new Belmont high school, in the Glen Lake spot, a sports-oriented school taking full advantage of the new Langford City Centre Park with leasing, and having the lake nearby for rowing, thereby leaving plenty of room in the actual school building for a large trades program. Most importantly though, my idea for the Royal Bay area school is to have it be a science-based academy. The popularity of the sciences with kids right now is amazing and we have the greatest opportunity as a community to harbour that. With a science academy at the new school, even things such as marine biology would be something to focus on with the possibility of a new marina/ terminal down across from the school where the property meets the water. Also, a terrific idea for bringing tourism into Colwood would be to have our own Science World somewhere near the water at the new Royal Bay area. People would travel for miles to come into Colwood to see it. Note the extreme popularity of the Telus Science World in Vancouver. Partnerships with Pearson College, Royal Roads University, and businesses in the area could be hatched. Possibilities are endless, with small passenger ferries bringing tourists from downtown Victoria to the site as well. All for the love of knowledge. Please consider these ideas in your future plans for Colwood. Karen Sorchinski Colwood

Finding balance with teachers and gov’t After having read so much about the B.C. teachers’ actions regarding their work environment and remuneration, I feel that they have not been treated fairly for a couple of reasons. First, with the teachers’ employers being enabled to get the B.C. government to legislate very swift injunctions against job action, there must be some type of moral responsibility on the part of the employers to treat the teachers fairly. My take on this is that there is no responsibility shown in that regard, with the unilateral choosing of an arbitrator. Also, when we see the other government unions being offered three per cent and the teachers zero per cent, the question should be why should this be considered fair or responsible. My take on the answer is that if there is no compelling reason to be fair or responsible, why bother? B.C. Hydro, B.C. Ferries and other monopolies are raising their rates to cover inflation, are the teachers somehow immune from those increases? Second, the teachers’ plight is about far more than wages. They have a vested interest in providing the best possible education to their students. When class

size dictates that they teach to the average students’ capability, many students will not thrive, and this is at great expense to their self esteem and overall value as a happy and properly-educated person. I fear that many students are being unfairly treated by the lack of proper education and this is not the teachers’ fault. However, providing payment for teaching service to the average capability of teachers is also unfair to the people paying for those services. The backbone of any union is protection of their members, and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation seems no different. However, as with other professions, they must take responsibility for the conduct and competence of those members. I have seen from personal experience with the public school system, with one of my sons and my granddaughter, that there are teachers doing a lot of harm. The private school system does not have such a problem, since they can hire and fire on merit, the public system cannot. How this should be corrected, will probably forever be a dilemma if the teachers do not take responsibility for this flaw. With identical tenure, a really bad teacher gets the same pay as a really good one, and is likely doing an immense amount of harm to our sons and daughters. This, I see as a very serious problem. Without the intervention of the excellent teaching boosters, Sylvan and Kumon, my son and granddaughter would not be the vibrant people that they are today. In my lifetime, I am hopeful that I will see a return to responsibility by both parties in this continual problematic dispute — the teachers taking control of the competence of their members and the employers providing a more benevolent view of their negotiations.

No reason to believe Liberals about HST Re: Reason to reject HST needs explaining again, Letters, March 28, 2012. A recent writer to this paper claims the HST was rejected because a) they felt misled during the last provincial election and b) it was tax-shift from corporations onto individuals. Regardless of people’s personal individual reasons to vote one way or another on the HST, the real question is why are people complaining about being misled by the B.C. Liberals? Long before the 2009 election started the Gordon Campbell government already breached its promise not to sell B.C. Rail, not to tear up contracts, not to fire massive public sector employees that support small business and breached their promise that we would all get health care when and where we need it the list goes on. Most people did not mind as long as it had an adverse effect on their neighbour and not them, as evident by the Liberals being re-elected twice. Fool me once shame on you but fool me twice and it is shame on me. Can’t claim I was misled because I will admit to voting against Campbell for at least the last three B.C. elections. He said he would not bring in the HST and then when he did, he said it was

revenue neutral. Of course a government will say those things. I wouldn’t trust Campbell to tell me the time in a room full of clocks. Andre Mollon Langford

Lack of value for Canadian resources Obviously, as elsewhere in Canada, B.C. residents aren’t too happy with current pump gas prices. And rightly so. While I can accept the core reason for building a pipeline to Kitimat (environment issues to be resolved), what’s to be shipped out from there brings to mind the overseas shipping of raw logs — a lack of value added employment for Canadians. Why shouldn’t Alberta have a resident refinery to add value to what is otherwise shipped out as crude oil? Perhaps that kind of added value could lighten the pain experienced at western gas stations.

Colwood needs tree retention bylaw Regarding Latoria Road developments in Colwood and in respect to mismanaged “harvesting of trees” being practised, the “clear cut” is becoming more obvious with these developments along Latoria Road. Although the rezoning applications were approved, I feel very strongly that a bylaw needs to be put into place on the percentage of harvest trees that can be taken from an area, along with a percentage of greenspace. I have lived in this area since 1971 and I am concerned with the environment, along with wildlife habitat and streams that are being affected. What will Colwood look like if this practice continues?

Vision Matters Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Dr. Brent Morrison, Dr. Sara Buckley, Dr. Cameron McCrodan, Dr. Ann-Marie Stewart and Dr. Chris Snow

Protect your eyes from UV radiation The sun supports all life on our planet; however, it’s life giving rays also pose dangers. The Principle danger is in the form of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UVradiation is a component of solar energy, but it can also be given off by artificial sources like welding machines, tanning beds and lasers. UV radiation is divided into UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. UV-C is absorbed by the ozone layer and does not present any threat (man made sources of UV-C, like electric welding arcs, are very harmful to the eyes, if you do not use proper protection). That’s not true of UV-A and UV-B. Scientific evidence now shows that exposure to both UV-A and UV-B can have damaging long and short term effects on your eyes and vision. If you are exposed, unprotected, to excessive amounts of UV radiation over a short period of time, your are likely to experience a condition called photokeratitis. Like a “sunburn of the eye” it may be painful and you may have symptoms including red eyes, a foreign body sensation or gritty feeling in the eyes, extreme sensitivity to light and excessive tearing. Fortunately, this is usually temporary and rarely causes permanent damage to the eyes. Long term exposure to UV radiation can be more serious. Scientific research has shown that exposure to even small amounts of UV radiation over a period of many years may increase your chance of developing a clouding of the lens of the eye called a cataract and cause damage to the retina, the nerve-rich lining of your eye that is used for seeing. Damage to the lens or the retina is usually not reversible. The effects of UV radiation are cumulative. The longer your eyes are exposed to UV radiation, the greater the risk of developing conditions such as cataracts in later life. Therefore, you should wear quality sunglasses that offer good protection and a hat or cap with a wide brim whenever you are working outdoors, participating in outdoor sports, taking a walk, running errands or doing anything in the sun. To provide protection for your eyes, your sunglasses should: block out 99 to 100 per cent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation; screen out 75-90 per cent of visible light; be perfectly matched in color and free of distortion and imperfection; and have lenses that are gray, green or brown. If you spend a lot of time outdoors in bright sunlight, wrap around frames provide additional protection from harmful UV radiation. Be sure to see your Doctor of Optometry regularly for a thorough eye examination. It is a good way to monitor your eye health, maintain good vision and keep up to date with new advances in UVprotection.

Erin McCracken/News staff

Sean Ward, acting chief of Canada Border Services Agency, with Victoria police spokesperson Mike Tucker and Victoria police Det. Paul Spencelayh, speak about the arrest of a California man allegedly in possession of child pornography.

Victoria border agents bust California man with child porn Erin McCracken News staff

Suspicious border agents recently nabbed a California man with alleged child pornography when he disembarked from the Clipper Ferry in Victoria. Benjamin Luber, 25, of La Jolla, Calif., was stopped in the Belleville Street ferry terminal Monday (March 26) by Canada Border Services Agency officials. After initial questioning, Luber was selected to undergo a more in-depth secondary examination. “Upon examination of the traveller’s MP3 player, suspected obscene material was discovered,” said Sean Ward, acting chief of the border agency’s Victoria operations. “This led to further examinations of his electronic goods, whereupon suspected child pornography was discovered.” The Victoria Police Department’s major crimes unit was called in, and seized Luber’s laptop, music player, cellphone and digital camera. He was arrested the next day, on Tuesday. Investigators say they don’t believe the accused intended to commit additional crimes in Canada. “Certainly the public is not at risk up here in Canada at all,” said VicPD Det. Paul Spencelayh. “We have no concerns regarding Mr. Luber.”

Due to the ongoing nature of their investigation, Ward and Spencelayh declined to say whether Luber is known to U.S. law enforcement officials, if he has a criminal record or if he intended to meet people in Victoria. “We do know why he was coming up here,” Spencelayh said. Luber was travelling alone. Victoria police credit border agents with the apprehension. “We wouldn’t have been made aware of this incident had it not been for the diligence of the CBSA officers,” Spencelayh said during a press conference last Wednesday. Border agents assess several “risk factors” when interviewing someone, such as travel history, previous criminal records and the traveller’s overall behaviour, said Ward. “If they’re exhibiting certain behaviours then we’ll select them for a secondary examination, a more in-depth exam,” he said. Luber has been charged with possession of child pornography, and police say he may face additional charges. He was released on $10,000 bail and has since returned to the U.S. where he must abide by several court-imposed conditions. Luber and/or his lawyer are scheduled to appear in Victoria court May 7.

Province launches ‘rock tour’ to promote youth jobs Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government is rolling out a rock-themed road show to encourage young people to find training and work. The Jobfest tour has all the trappings of a concert tour, including t-shirts, souvenir drumsticks and guitar picks,

Pair sentenced for animal cruelty Two men convicted of animal cruelty were sentenced last week. David Whiffin was fined $7,500. He was convicted of cruelty to an animal for failing to provide enough food to a horse in 2009. Co-accused Clayton Cunningham was convicted of causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal by allowing Jalupae the horse to starve. He was placed on probation for 12 months and ordered to perform 100 hours of community service. Both are prohibited from owning any animals for five years. Last December, Judge Sue Wishart found the two Brentwood Bay residents guilty of causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal, as well as improper care of feeding. The case stems from the emaciation and death by hanging of Jalupae, a 27-year-old Appaloosa gelding. Jalupae died as a result of being hanged from a rope tied to an excavator, on Sept. 15, 2009. The court found that Whiffin killed the animal humanely and acquitted him on that charge. He is to pay his $7,500 fine by Sept. 30, 2012.

and two inflatable tents that look like giant amplifiers. Stops in 50 B.C. communities will include a rock band, community performers and speakers, with the tents serving as mobile career resource centres.

“We’re going into some of the smallest communities in the province, First Nations communities, non-aboriginal communities to really share with the youth of the province what sorts of careers are available to them,” said Jobs

Minister Pat Bell. Job resources that are part of the tour include iPad apps that guide users through a four-stage questionnaire to narrow down their possible career choices, and computers to link users to a

network of websites for detailed information. The tour will officially launch in Abbotsford on April 18. The Victoria tour stop isn’t scheduled until Oct. 5. Tour details are available at www.jobfest2012.ca. TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS

Support the one potato fund The Very Thought of You is available at Munro’s Books, Lyle’s Place, Larson Music and ianmcdougall.com or at the official CD launch tonight (April 4) from 7:30 p.m. at the University Club’s Fireside Lounge at UVic.

Jazz legend founds emergency fund for students Ian McDougall’s latest recording to benefit those in fine arts Natalie North News staff

Ian McDougall cranks the volume on his home stereo and lets a smile overwhelm him. His new recording of the Charlie Chaplin original, Smile, plays. “I like it loud,” says the 73-year-old jazz trombonist. Arms outstretched, McDougall pauses, then as if to point at the notes filling his living room, cries out in appreciation of Rick Wilkins’ arrangement on the track. “Listen to the strings,” McDougall says of the recording which happens to be much slower – and more emotional – than most expect from the ballad. The way Chaplin intended, he says. But the iconic jazz musician, Juno Award winner, University of Victoria professor emeritus and Order of Canada recipient stops himself short of embarking on a conversation about sentiment. The story behind his latest disc, The Very Thought of You, featuring Smile and 13 other classic ballads performed by an all-star ensem-

wife Barb, a four-piece rhythm section, 20 strings and an oboe. Barb, a violinist, produced and mixed the recording. The oldest of the ballads – which McDougall insists aren’t jazz – is a 1926 George Gershwin tune. The newest: Henry Mancini’s Moon River from ’61. McDougall’s epic career began in late night downtown Victoria, where he “learned on the job,” he says, as young as 12 years old. “Instead of playing in the school band, I was playing in the clubs with a bunch of boozers,” he adds. He went on to play on somewhere in the neighbourhood of 40 LPs and CDs over his 63-year-career and accompany the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett and Gladys Knight. McDougall continues to perform with his band, the Ian McDougall 12tet. “Musicians never stop working if they care about music,” McDougall says, adding that continuing to play is also an excuse not to drink cheap wine. Should CD sales take off, Ten Mile has plans to extend the fund to fine arts students across the country. “I’m very happy to the supporters and that they’re happy giving to this fund. What more can you ask for?” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Challenges, small victories in Journey to the Edges Woodwynn director swaps lives with homeless man Erin Cardone News staff

Editor’s note: Ed is an alias, used to protect the identity of the man in this story. As they stand side by side next to the garden on Woodwynn Farms, the contrast in appearance between Richard Leblanc and Ed is slim. Besides several inches separating their heights, both appear weathered. Ed, though, is clean and cleanshaven. His back is straighter and his face glows with more colour than Leblanc’s. It may seem ironic, then, that Leblanc is executive director of the farm and until February, led a comfortable life. Today, though, he sports longish salt-and-pepper facial hair, wears a dirty sweatshirt and the dark circles under his eyes give away his exhaustion. This was day 37 of Journey to the Edges 2012, where Leblanc has traded places with Ed, who now sleeps in a comfortable bed in the farmhouse, while Leblanc shivers in Ed’s old white van, parked anywhere suitable in Greater Victoria. “Physically, I’m exhausted from being cold all the time,” Leblanc

says. In the mornings, his muscles are sore and fatigued from a full day of shivering — like he’s done a hard workout at a gym. In the mornings, he’s had to scrape frost off the inside of the van’s windows. Leblanc lives off $320 a month, about $10 a day. Things aren’t easy for Ed, but they’re easier. He receives $585 a month in social assistance. He’s applying for disability as well, which would grant him an extra $300 a month. Ed has poor hearing, but the 23-page paperwork is laborious and delays could mean he may not get word back about the increase for three to six months, he says. Meanwhile, he continues to make calls to potential employers — Ed was a carpenter until he broke his foot in a work-related accident — to no avail. At 56, it’s hard to find work. Journey to the Edges will continue until Woodwynn Farms achieves three goals: 2,012 people write letters to Central Saanich council in support of converting the farm into a therapeutic community for Victoria’s homeless; and 2,012 people donate to Woodwynn’s “99 cents a day” campaign and a man nicknamed Todd, who walked off the farm and back onto the streets, is found. That could take a while. More than a month into the campaign, Leblanc says about 15 per cent of the first two goals has been achieved. He hopes more people

will donate or write letters of support. Todd continues to elude those searching for him. Ed says the campaign is working. “There’s more people aware. The people who know me are more aware. It is working.” Leblanc agrees. The challenge lies in compelling people to help him realize those goals. “Getting people to take action — that’s the difficult part,” Leblanc says. Ed adds, “People know all about it, but they’re not doing anything about it. We have to get that bit of motivation and that’s tough.” Leblanc spent a few hours at the farm, then returned to the van to spend another icy night in the measly shelter of Ed’s van. For more on Woodwynn’s “99 cents a day campaign,” see woodwynnfarms.org.

A different kind of Langford ‘roadeo’ Erin McCracken News staff

I hesitantly slide into the driver’s seat of a B.C. Transit bus, not at all ready to steer the massive beast through five daunting obstacles set up around the company’s Langford yard. I am about to get a crash course in appreciating transit bus drivers, who shuttle us to all ends of the Capital Region and beyond. “I can direct you or you can try it on your own,” B.C. Transit safety and training officer Phil Thornton-Joe says graciously. There is no hint of panic or reluctance in his voice at being assigned to coach my rookie self through the next seven heart-pounding minutes. “Just tell me what to do, and I’ll do it,” I choke out, hands gripping the enormous steering wheel. “And before we start, I just want to say, I’m sorry for everything I’m about to say and do.” Six journalists, including CTV reporter Louise Hartland, CTV anchor Hudson Mack, Shaw TV’s Dan Kahan, CFAX radio host Ryan Price and Jack Knox, columnist for the Times Colonist, were vying for serious bragging rights in a B.C. Transit Roadeo Thursday.

After an all-too-brief lesson in changing signals and the difference between the gas and brake pedals, we’re off at the break-neck speed of two kilometres per hour. The next thing I know, I've parked my bus next to a curb. Still, the judge standing outside is unharmed. Then we’re off to the obstacle that forces us into a turn. The entrance pylons remain upright, but I haven’t banked hard enough. I’m now in a face-off with four pylons inches away from the nose of my bus. “I can’t make this turn without killing those ‘people,’ can I, Phil?” I ask, looking for-

lornly at the pylons. Reversing would result in further point reductions. “Just nail them. Take them out,” he says. “It’s OK.” Pylons scatter and we’re off to navigate my right wheels between two lines of tennis balls, mounted on washers. “How do you know where the wheels are, Phil? I can’t see a thing,” I say as the bus creeps forward. “I just know. It takes practice,” he says, eyes glued to the bus mirrors. We set up for a manoeuvre in reverse, only to have to abandon the obstacle. We head for the finish line. Thornton-Joe instructs me to

step on the gas and stop just before our bumper touches the final pylon. “Just feather the break when I tell you to stop,” Thornton-Joe says. Little does he realize I’d given up on lightly touching down on the brake four obstacles back. Several jarring stops later, we finish the course. Thornton-Joe, who refuses to admit he is the reason we’re still alive, hasn’t broken a sweat. “You’re trainable. You listen to instruction,” B.C. Transit safety and training officer Sal Ruffolo tells me, glancing at his clipboard. I spent mere minutes toddling around pylons and tennis balls from the cockpit of a near-empty bus, while the true transit heroes spend their days in traffic, coping with busy customers, dodging bad tempers and, all too often, riders who assault them with spit. Those found guilty of assaulting a bus driver should be sentenced, in part, to hard time at the Langford yard, where they must drive the obstacle course until they nail it perfectly. ••• Victoria News reporter Erin McCracken, earned second place in the B.C.

Bike jammin’ in Colwood World-class cyclists on hand to mentor students at West Shore Parks and Rec Travis Paterson News staff

At six months pregnant, Erinne Willock has put her racing bike away in favour of cruising the Galloping Goose. But the pro-cyclist and 2008 Olympian still knows a thing or two about her sport and is eager to share. This Friday (April 6) Willock will be one of several world-class cyclists lending their knowledge at the School Bike League’s inaugural Bike Jam. “The school bike league is what got me on my bike and started my career,” Willock said. The Stelly’s grad remembers going to school races in the 1990s with 300 or 400 kids competing. When she found herself with time to spare this winter, she offered to help out with the bike league. The day-long festival is a free event for middle and high school students in Greater Victoria and the spring season kickoff for the newly rebranded School Bike League. It takes place outside at the lower park of West Shore Parks and Recreation, using the velodrome and BMX track, among the other natural features available.

“It’s the best place we could imagine,” said School Bike League co-organizer Lara McCulloch. “We’re running dual slalom tracks down the slope, and we’ll have access to track bikes on the Velodrome and BMX bikes on the BMX track.” Willock’s road racing clinic is one of seven half-hour stations that kids will move through at Bike Jam. “We’ll do drills and skills, maybe a few little relay races,” Willock said. “It’s informative and also fun, and good for all skill levels.” Each station will be led by an expert: the Victoria BMX Association, the Greater Victoria Velodrome Association, single-speed cyclocross world champion Drew McKenzie, national mountain biking coach Geoff Pendrel and elite downhill mountain biker Scott Mitchell. Perhaps the most fun element is the Camp of Champions Air Bag. Kids can jump their bike in the air and land on the bag. At 3:30 pro dirt jumpers Jarrett Moore (Oak Bay) and Sam Dueck (Vancouver) will put on an exhibition using the bag. “In the 1990s there was 400 kids in the bike league but last year there was maybe 40 kids,” said

Edward Hill/News staff

Olympian road cyclist Erinne Willock and mountain bike national team coach Geoff Pendrel will be coaching kids at the inaugural Bike Jam at the Juan de Fuca velodrome and BMX park on Friday. McCulloch, who’s on the organizing team with Kate Beardmore, Lister Farrar, Eric Simonson, Bruce Tonkin and Tony Wakelin.

“We’re doing this huge promotion because the word wasn’t getting out. We saw that the bike league needed exposure.”

Registration is free at schoolbikeleague.ca or at the event, which runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. sports@goldstreamgazette.com
