Chess giants contesting title Grand Pacific Open, provincial championships help put Victoria on map in chess world

Services offered, supplies paid for by region’s faith groups

Erin McCracken News staff

Roszan Holmen Love of the game and the chance, however small, to play one of the world’s leading chess players spurred Howard Wu to register in the largest annual open chess tournament in Western Canada. More than 100 players from five countries, four Canadian provinces and six U.S. states have registered to compete in the sixth Grand Pacific Open, happening today through Monday at the Hotel Grand Pacific, 463 Belleville St. For Wu, the highlight will be either playing against or watching Hikaru Nakamura, an international grandmaster ranked No. 1 in the U.S. and sixth in the world. “There is a chance (to play against him), depending on how I end up doing in earlier rounds,” said Wu, a Gordon Head resident and national chess master. At the Open, participants play six rounds of games until one player is left. “Once we sit down, it would just be like playing any strong player, although the result would probably be different,” Wu said, laughing. “But you approach it the same way. It’s just the honour and privilege to play against someone at that level.” He also planned to root for two junior players he coaches. They are among more than 150 kids from kindergarten to Grade 12 from around the province who are competing in the B.C. Chess Challenge today (April 6). The high registration numbers for the junior provincial championships and the Grand Pacific Open signals that Victoria is on the map in the chess world. And that means a bright future awaits. “It’s good for the success of our event in future years,” said Brian Raymer, event organizer and president of the Victoria Junior Chess Society. “We have a high number of returning players and we always get a few new ones every year.” Spectators are welcome to attend for free.

Saanich resident Howard Wu is one of more than 100 players, including several top-ranked masters, competing in the Grand Pacific Open international chess tournament in Victoria this weekend.

One month into his new position as executive director of Our Place Society, Don Evans is forging partnerships to help keep the doors open and the meals flowing to people in need. “When I came in here, and I saw that they were closed on weekends and holidays, I realized that we were going to be closed for four days during Easter,” he said. The society runs a deficit, so paying staff overtime to open on a holiday would be difficult, he said. At the same time, he added, “it was difficult for me to think that many of these people might have a hard time finding a meal during those days, so what I did was just reach out to the churches.” He received a great response. Nine faith groups in the Capital Region stepped forward to pay for, prepare and serve three meals on Good Friday and Easter Monday at Our Place. Others are also getting involved. “There have been a few staff that said they would like to come in and volunteer for those days,” Evans said. PLEASE SEE: Weekend meals, Page A6

Victoria’s bid for Junos needs help

Preparing new parents for life ahead One in three pregnant women will experience anxiety and depression Natalie North News staff

Every new mother feels the worry of something bad happening to their child, but for one out of every three pregnancies, postpartum depression or anxiety is another reality that often goes undiagnosed. “Women feel a stigma with the depression and they’ll struggle in silence,” said Natasha Montroy, a naturopathic doctor specializing in women’s health. “One in three is not a small number and we need to start educating women ... talking about it in a real, open manner.” Montroy and colleague Jody Watson, also a naturopathic doctor at Vancouver Island Naturopathic Clinic, host a onenight course on postpartum depression and anxiety, April 19 at Saanich Commonwealth Place. The course is designed to educate new or expectant mothers and their partners about preventative strategies and treatment options for postpartum depression and anxiety. “It often affects a mother’s self esteem, her relationship with her partner or other relationships, her confidence in parenting and, at times, may affect bonding with her child,” Montroy said. The focus of the course is preventative. Acupuncture, botanical medicines, nutrition and counselling form a part of the course’s holistic approach, but its mandate is to provide all treatment options available to women. Resources available in Greater Victoria include counselling sessions, momand-babe exercise programs, support groups and referral services developed through the Vancouver Island Health Authority. “We’re certainly not antimedication,” Montroy said. “There are times when we

Registered clinical counsellor Jody Watson, left, and naturopath Natasha Montroy stand in front of an acupuncture chart at their clinic. Acupuncture is one of the treatment options up for discussion at a postpartum depression and anxiety workshop the pair will lead this month. recommend anti-depressants, but what we do is review all options and how to guide yourself along that path.” Another option will soon be available as Watson works with Camosun College in developing an online continuing education course centred on postpartum depression and anxiety.

The program will include a live chat component, as well as self care and tips for partners. It will cost about $120 and is slated for a late-summer start, although the details have yet to be confirmed. “Even people who don’t get postpartum will struggle those first few months,” Watson said.

Postpartum prevalence Depression isn’t any more common during the postpartum period than it is at any other time. About seven per cent of pregnant women will suffer from postpartum depression, whereas the occurrence of anxiety disorders in pregnant women is much greater at about 20 to 25 per cent, says Nichole Fairbrother, professor with the Island Medical Program and director of the Mother-Infant Wellness Lab at B.C. Women’s Hospital & Health Centre in Vancouver. If not treated, however, women with anxiety are prone to developing depression. “Because we’re so used to thinking about things in terms of depression, it’s what people focus on. Then the fact that the person started out with

“They’re not alone with how they’re feeling and it’s quite normal to feel overwhelmed.” The postpartum depression workshop costs $15 and runs from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on April 19. Registration is available online at recreation.saanich.ca/ reconline. nnorth@saanichnews.com

an anxiety disorder gets ignored and they don’t get treatment for it,” Fairbrother said, adding that anxiety is easier to treat than depression. Her research also covers postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder, characterized by a mother’s unwanted thoughts of harm happening to her baby, either via an accident or hurting her baby herself. “Everybody gets quite worked up about (postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder) and people get worried that they may be at risk of harming their child. We’ve found everybody has some thoughts of ‘what if something bad happens to my baby?’” Half of the women within Fairbrother’s latest research sample of about 350 mothers reported thoughts of purposely harming their babies. nnorth@saanichnews.com

The deadline for Victoria to bid on hosting the 2014 Juno Awards is fast approaching. Bid committee organizers will be making their pitch for support at municipal council meetings around the Capital Region in hopes of securing financial commitments. For committee member and Victoria city councillor Chris Coleman, it’s about marketing the regional benefits of the event. Hosting the Junos involves Victoria Coun. much more than Chris Coleman the one-time televised event at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. “Locally, we’re more interested in how we spread the different components around the region,” Coleman said. He envisions week-long celebrations to showcase local talent. The bid committee seeks to secure approximately $1.5 million from the province and $450,000 from local municipalities by the end of April, according to the initial expression of interest. Because of the competitive nature of the bid, exact numbers aren’t being released. WInnipeg and Calgary may also be submitting bids, Coleman said. The B.C. government is looking at supporting Victoria’s bid, on condition of municipal investment, he added. Whether municipalities have the desire to spend during a time of fiscal restraint is the next pressing question. “The only option I can anticipate woud be to defer or disapprove,” said Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard. “I think our taxpayers would want to know what the business plan is that would justify property taxes.” rholmen@vicnews.com

Hep A clinics extended again Roszan Holmen News staff

During the first three days of a clinic offered to people potentially exposed to hepatitis A, more than 1,000 people received vaccinations. Staff stayed several hours overtime to keep up with the demand on Monday evening, said Shannon Marshall, spokesperson for the Vancouver Island Health Authority. Last week, news broke that an employee of Fairway Market in Quadra Village who worked

in the deli had been diagnosed with Hep A. As a precaution, VIHA advised anyone who consumed non prepackaged deli food, purchased March 18, 19, 20, 22, 25, or 26 to get vaccinated. The risk of infection “is very low,� Marshall said. As of Wednesday, no one had been identified as getting sick who had any connection to Fairway.

Police probe robberies linked to stolen fire department key Fire officials say no key is missing Erin McCracken News staff

A master key that investigators believe was stolen from the Victoria Fire Department may account for a spike in the number of business break-ins since early January. It wasn’t until Monday, after numerous offices at a medical building at 1990 Fort St. were robbed of medical and computer equipment over the weekend, that Victoria police determined a fire department master key was used to gain entry. The fire department was told about the breach on Monday. Since then, fire officials have accounted for all 25 master keys currently in service. Twelve other keys, made in the same batch in 2003, were previously ordered destroyed. “I know that they were signed off and taken to the mechanic’s shop and destroyed,” said Victoria Fire Chief Jeff Lambert. Regardless, fire crews worked around the clock Monday and Tuesday, rekeying cylinder lockboxes at about 530 commercial, office and residential buildings in Victoria. “All hands on duty for this one,” said Lambert. “We have to protect the security of that system.”

Erin McCracken/News staff

Sgt. Mike Russell holds a master key like the one police suspect was used to gain entry into office buildings. With a master key, the fire department, B.C. Hydro and telecommunications companies can access metal or electronic keys inside lockboxes and enter buildings. “I’ve been told by my inspectors it’s a real anomaly to have access to everything in the building,” Lambert said. The master key “mishap” could result in changes at the department, he said. “I want to review our policy on how we store the keys and make sure we are completely up to date in our inventory of keys,” Lambert said, adding the department will also work with property owners to ensure the

Clarification In an article about the Checkers Pavilion in Beacon Hill Park (News, April 4), the current views of park historian Janis Ringuette were incorrectly represented. While in the past she supported dismantling the historic lookout, she changed her position when no other interest groups supported this course of action. She now supports the idea of restoring the building as a lookout and interpretive centre.

lockbox system is secure. Police continue to investigate the weekend theft of eight computer hard drives, two laptop computers and several small items such as stethoscopes from the Fort Street medical building. While in the area on Sunday, police arrested a 40-year-old Victoria man, known for committing property crimes. He is being held in custody on unrelated warrants, but is considered a person of interest in the master key case. Acting on information they received, police recovered six hard drives and a few hand-held devices at an undisclosed location. Two hard drives and the laptops are still missing. Police are also waiting to hear from medical office staff as to whether the stolen hardware contains personal information such as patient records, Russell said. With the newfound knowledge that thieves have a master key, police investigators plan to review a string of recent unsolved robberies. “We’ve been trying to put our finger on it, not knowing exactly what has been causing this increase (in commercial breakand-enters),” Russell said. “But really, it would have been helpful to know when (the key) went missing to be able to sort out that timeline.” emccracken@vicnews.com

IN BRIEF

Passengers corner man after window smashed A 22-year-old Esquimalt man is facing mischief charges after allegedly punching out the passenger window of a taxi outside the Cambie Pub early Saturday morning. The cabbie was pulling away from the Esquimalt bar with three passengers inside, when the suspect jumped in front of the vehicle to prevent it from leaving. Police say the man smashed the taxi window as it drove by him. Police were called around 1 a.m.

and found the suspect cornered on top of a dumpster by two taxi passengers. “After climbing down off the dumpster, (the suspect) claimed that he had been in his suite all night and that the witnesses just “came at him” for no reason,” Deputy Chief John Ducker wrote on the department’s operations blog. “Not surprisingly, the suspect was very intoxicated and is well known to the officers.” Police took the man to his nearby home and put him to bed. emccracken@vicnews.com

Taking the blues out of commuting Kyle Wells News staff

A Colwood entrepreneur is launching a private bus service to pick up where the 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 at 6, 6:30 and 6:50 a.m. Return trips will leave from near CFB Esquimalt at 4:15 and 4:45 p.m. Blue Bus promoter Cynthia Cummings has a husband and son in the military who use the Blue Boat daily. With that service being cancelled 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.” She said she doesn’t expect to make a profit and will try to keep the cost as low as possible – altering the level of service, with either more or less, depending on the demand. The Blue Bus service is selling itself as convenient, reliable and environmentally friendly, specific to the needs of military personnel and a way to remove cars from the Colwood crawl. The project has come 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 will be well used. “I think it’s a great idea, I do,”

OUR VIEW

Warnings, not health scares With words like “alert” “scare” and “warning” thrown about Greater Victorians were told of a potential health hazard this week. Any health issue, of course, must be taken seriously, but when the media get involved, even the risk of a potential threat gets the full-court press. That’s not to say we’re all alarmists. The Vancouver Island Health Authority has a duty to report a threat to public health no matter how small, to help prevent the spread of the disease. It’s the medias job to help get the word out. So when an employee at a local deli was diagnosed with Hepatitis A, a press release was sent to the media to help inform the public of a free immunization clinic set up by VIHA. And the public reacted – in droves. The number of folks that turned up for vaccinations was in the thousands – surely more than the number of people potentially at risk of infection. The free clinic run by VIHA on Sunday had to turn away 200 people because it had run out of vaccine. The health authority was forced to schedule an additional two days of free immunizations. The vaccine is effective if you receive it within 14 days of exposure. The risk of catching the illness is remote and limited to those who came in contact with contaminated food. There is no indication that any food was contaminated in the first place. The immunization clinic is a standard precautionary measure taken by the health authority. There is no reason to panic. There will always be a concern if there is an outbreak of an infectious disease, but we don’t need mass inoculations unless the health authority tells us otherwise. The majority of people who get hepatitis A recover in about a month. In rare instances, it can be severe enough to cause death. People with a history of chronic liver disease are more likely to become severely ill. Once a person has recovered from hepatitis A they can’t get the infection again. There are usually less than two reported cases of Hepatitis A per 100,000 people in B.C. each year – that’s fewer than 50 cases. Only one in five or six people actually become ill enough to need medical attention. Credit must go to Fairway Market and their customers who seem to be taking the incident in stride – more so than some who spent their week lining up for a vaccine they didn’t necessarily need.

When Bos-

ton fans goaded Vancouver fans, it struck a chord with a primal immaturity with which many young men struggle. When the Canucks crapped out in Game 7 4-0, fans lost their right to the swagger that comes with backing a winner. The sense of humiliation was palpable and, unfortunately, it seems too many fans tried to save face by lashing out where they could. It was a sign of a general immaturity among Canucks’ fandom that manifested itself in the worst possible way. Seeing images of a burning cop car makes it tough to think of a riot as a growing pain but hopefully last year was cathartic enough that such extremes don’t have to happen again. Of course, something even more important has been lost in the debate over whether young morons or inadequate policing is more to blame. The riot itself, with damages estimated around $4 million, was a relatively minor event. It happened suddenly and was cleaned up quickly. It became bigger than life because of the comprehensive television coverage and unforgettable photos – I’d bet that infamous shot of the kissing couple is worth almost $4 million to Vancouver’s international reputation. Here’s hoping the Canucks have a long and ultimately successful run once the playoffs get underway on Wednesday. Like many fans, I’m cheering for both a Stanley Cup championship and a chance to show the world we can celebrate without the mayhem.

VICTORIA NEWS - Friday, April 6, 2012

OPINION There’s no quick fix for capital confusion I moved here last May and was completely perplexed by the fall municipal elections. As a transplant from Calgary, I simply couldn’t understand why a geographically and economically interdependent region with a quarter of the population of Calgary would need 13 municipal councils. For me, amalgamation seemed like a no-brainer: reducing redundancy and improving efficiency was bound to clarify the political situation and streamline economic growth. I thought of it as a playground with 13 separate sandboxes, each being used by a different kid, none of whom realized that if they combine all the sandboxes together, they could build one heck of a castle. It turns out that I made the same assumption that most pro-amalgamation advocates make: a bigger, “simpler” system must be better for the economy and the political environment. It seems logical that creating a larger tax base will allow for more money for social programs and infrastructure projects, as well as providing aid to the economically weaker

areas in the region. jobs. Additionally, Unfortunately, this citizens became logic doesn’t hold up distanced from their to reality. local political leaders, Looking at other while simultaneously cities that have being handed fiscal amalgamated, it’s easy responsibility for more to see the services and results don’t programs live up to the Heather Snider which the Guest column hype.

to oversee and effect the amalgamation of Halifax. He was also the independent advisor who studied the potential amalgamation of Halifax and advised primarily against it. This seems to be a lesson that Greater Victoria has already learned. The Capital Region District council exists and works to provide the benefits of amalgamation without the costs. However, there are more services and projects where increased integration and co-operation would be beneficial. Police co-ordination and the mass transit projects come readily to mind. I applaud the efforts of Victoria Coun. Shellie Gudgeon in providing a nonpartisan forum for discussing these issues. However, I believe that mayors Jensen and Leonard are right to be shying away from amalgamation. Voters need to be informed about the historical realities of modern amalgamations and not only the idealized “efficiencies” and “savings” that don’t materialize in the real world.

LETTERS Writer’s credentials colour letter’s content Re: Generate other revenue sources for infrastructure (Letters, March 30) The letter concludes with the statement that tolls on the new blue bridge and the Craigflower bridge would encourage greater transit usage while creating a sustainable revenue source. A review of the B.C. government’s website shows that Avi Ickovich holds a senior provincial position as manager of program development with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. There are several questions that should be asked: Was the editor aware of Ickovich’s position as a senior provincial bureaucrat? What is the ministry policy on staff sending personal letters

to the press in areas of direct ministry interest, e.g. bridge tolls? Is the ministry supportive of bridge tolls in the Victoria area and did the ministry approve this letter? Answers should be provided as soon as possible. A letter like that will be seen by the public as presenting the interesting ideas of a concerned private citizen. Such letters must not be used as a back-door effort to float out possible ministry policies and see what public responses emerge. David Langley Saanich

Tuberculosis funding needs higher profile World Tuberculosis day came and went March 24 with hardly a notice in the press. And yet Doctors Without

Borders notes that the Global Fund has cancelled $2 billion in treatment, because rich donor countries haven’t come through with promised funding. We are so very close to a solution to a killer that has dogged humanity since antiquity, and this is not the time for that old political trick of promising money in front of the cameras, then ignoring that promise when the bill comes. For the first time in history, TB is on the decline, but it is becoming harder to treat, in part because of inconsistent funding. One-third of the world’s population has been exposed to TB – we can’t hide from it. When will the Harper government pressure our global partners to come through with their promised funding?

Tour offers different perspective Young Life stages annual tour of renos, new home builds Don Descoteau News staff

It’s been 15 years since Dianne and Larry Cross first updated their Sidney home. In the years since, they haven’t always been happy with how things turned out. At times they felt they did the right things to incorporate Dianne’s spinning, weaving and rug-hooking business into the front of their living space. At others they lamented not taking a different tack. With Larry retired from a long school district career and focusing most of his attention on being mayor of Sidney, and Dianne having scaled back her operations, last summer they finally made the changes they had long dreamed about. A renovation guided by Central Saanich designer Lana Lounsbury has given them the layout they want. “It’s just lovely having this new kitchen,” Dianne said. “This latest reno brought the house up to date and made it more workable for our lifestyle.” Their renovations and others that have created a more suitable work/home environment are among the highlights on this year’s 22nd annual Young Life Victoria Home and Renovation Tour fundraiser, running April 14-15 at sites around the Capital Region. Among other changes on this year’s tour include cutting back the number of homes to 10 – so visitors can chat with homeowners, designers and builders, said Young Life spokesperson Bill Okell – and including more houses with spectacular vistas. “(It’s nice) when you get to see a home that has a different attraction,” he said. “Not only are some of them working

THE ARTS

Hot ticket: Rococode with The Archers at Lucky Bar April 6, tickets $12

Rococode is an evolving band of four Vancouver and Victoria musicians. And as all things begin and end with the music, Rococode is set to making exciting new pop. Their debut album is Guns, Sex & Glory.

A life altering moment Laura Lavin News Staff

Victoria singer Sachika had plenty to be grateful for last Thanksgiving, the next day however, she was sure she was about to die. “I had a serious accident on the Malahat six months ago. I almost died. After, I was sitting on the side of the road thinking, ‘I’m not doing what I love. I really have to try again with music,’” she said. Sachika’s 1995 BMW hydroplaned off the highway and hit a concrete barrier, pushing it over the cliff. “I swerved into oncoming traffic … I took a chance and went between two cars and hit the barrier. … I said to (my passenger Bruce Cookson) ‘we’re going to die’ – I was that scared, and he said, ‘No we’re not.’” The car was obliterated but Sachika and Cookson suffered no serious injuries. After a trip to the hospital, she went directly to the recording studio and sang for four hours. “It solidified in my mind that life is too short to not do what you

love,” she said. She decided to take her ICBC settlement, and a leap of faith and head to Montreal’s Piccolo studio to record her single Not Gunna Play. “It was amazing. I feel so blessed, so grateful. You always have to balance making a living with doing your dream, your art, whatever it is for an artist. I felt so supported (by friends and family).” Prior to the crash, Sachika, 32, was close to giving up on her dream. Her last CD was recorded nine years ago and “paying the bills” left her little time to concentrate on singing. “You don’t realize how a car accident really messes you up mentally,” she said. “The situation could have gone so many ways. I’m really blessed it went the way it did.” Director Michael Worth, who produced the music video for Cole Grifter’s Habit, convinced her to make a video to go along with her single. “It’s been wild. I recorded the single at Christmas and Michael said ‘Let’s do a video,’ and so many people donated their time

and we did it for $2,000 … it’s just wild,” she said. Worth partnered with local artist/body painter Kristin Grant and choreographer Jessica Hickman to set the scene. “Set designer Eva Yager, a designer and wedding planner bridged Worth and Sachika’s concept into the third dimension,” said assistant director Mia Bailly. “(They) created a visually stunning and cutting-edge experience that will captivate the audience.” The video is a stylish and avantgarde period piece. Cinevic, the artist-run cooperative, also loaned its Many Canasupport to the dian College of project. Performing Arts “It’s really students prothe vision of vided assistance the director as extras during Michael Worth the shoot, and Sharon Tiffin/News staff set and Sachika – materials it’s their vision,” were provided by said Bailly. “It’s quite neat the way the Belfry Theatre. everything came together.” “I don’t think I knew what I was Bailly said assistance from doz- getting myself into,” said Sachika. ens of volunteers gave the work “a “Michael has grown so much in his great community feel.” craft and so have I.

For it to be a contender, it has to really be special.” So far, she is enthusiastic about the results and with the addition of editor Denver Jackson, she is sure it will be a success. “For me it’s an empowerment song,” she said. llavin@vicnews.com

Folkies have high hopes Sidney venue draws fans Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Amid the vibrant folk music scene of Calgary decades ago, Bob de Wolff discovered the next big talent – James Keelaghan.. “He was a Calgary boy with a very fine singing voice. We’ve been following his career since he was 18,” de Wolff said. “We were one of several people on the Calgary scene that invested in his first record, and have remained a fan of his through his 11 records.” Decades later, James Keelaghan will perform at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney. “Bob was one of the first guys who ever hired me back when I was 18 years old,” Keelaghan said. “It’s a real pleasure to be coming out and doing a concert with him. And he insisted we bring his favourite bass player David Woodhead. “We call him Oaken noggen,” he chuckled. “He’s worth the price of admission alone.” People can look forward to being entertained with some great tunes and tales, said Keelaghan. “I tend to write a lot of story songs, storytelling is a main part of what I do. They’re songs that are relevant to today,” Keelaghan said. “It’s going to be a great evening of music. The combination of me and David is a powerful duo.” “You can see him as a storyteller, a storyteller about Canada. His songs are heartfelt, they bring

De Wolff is a director of the Deep Cove Folk Music Society that meets at St. John’s United Church once a month. They wanted to bring larger names in folk music to the Peninsula, and started last year with a wellattended Lennie Gallant concert. “There are people too expensive for the 100 seat venue [at St. John’s]. “We really like the idea of having folks of this stature in our own theatre in Sidney” de Wolff said. “We’re hoping – given success with this concert – we expect to do a concert series, perhaps three or four a year in places like the Mary Winspear, of people of stature in the roots

community in Canada.” He expects success from award-winning singer and songwriter Keelaghan “He has a special talent. (He’s) Canadian, a person who we think the world of as a person who is not only a fine singer and songwriter, but he’s also really intelligent in the way that he approaches the audience,” de Wolff said. “His concerts are both fun as well as, I hate to say, educational.” Keelaghan performs Saturday, April 7 at 8 p.m. in the Mary Winspear Centre. Tickets are $25 available at 250-656-0630 or online at www.marywinspear.ca. reporter@peninsulanewsreview. com

During his college time he lived in the backwoods of Langford and focused on freeriding. Jumpship will feature 30 of the top-ranked freeride cyclists in the

world, with contests running the weekend of June 22 to 24, with the Camp of Champions airbag on hand for practice. “The plan was to have (Jumpship) completely bigger in every

way. This year’s (event) will start on the terrace at road level and connect with a ramp to a much bigger barge, with a couple of features in the parking lot.” Lunn is part of the Dockside Mountain Biking Society, an eightperson board created to handle Jumpship and possibly other events on Vancouver Island in the future. Easily the biggest spectator draw of the festival, Jumpship’s freeriding glamour could have some of the spotlight stolen by the introduction of the Roller Jam Dual Slalom course on Belleville Street. On Saturday (June 23), trial bikes will race a different style of man-made course. Roller Jam is an observed trial competition where cyclists conquer a series of challenging obstacles. “It’s the first observed trial competition in Victoria. Turning it into a race is an added element for onlookers,” said organizer Jason Nickels. The 23-day festival revs up with the 20th anniversary of the Bastion Grand Prix on Sunday, June 3. Cyclists will zip around the 900 metre criterium race up to 65 kilometres per hour. The Bastion crit is the third and final part of the Robert Cameron Law series. It starts with the Russ Hays time trial on June 1, followed by the Metchosin Road Race on June 2, which doubles this year as the B.C. Road Cycling Championships. sports@vicnews.com

ASK THE

The Bays are back Bays’ calling card is in repair Travis Paterson News staff

The James Bay Athletic Association is back with a different look. Famous for building their game around the thunderous forward pack, the Bays aren’t the same without forwards Dave Ramsay and Eric Forsythe this season. But they’re out to prove they’re just as good. With new blood added to the Bays’ always-deep program, the powerhouse club (10-1) is back in first place atop the Canadian Direct Insurance Premier Rugby League. At some point, careers and families trump trophies, said coach Pete Rushton, whose Bays are under new leadership without captain Ramsay. Since 2003, Ramsay has typified the Bays’ traditional ‘lunchbox’ attitude that began with Gary Johnston and Hans de Goede in the 1970s. Like the clubs in those days, Ramsay helped the club to a run of three straight Rounsefell Cup, B.C. championships. But with a small child at home and a career in the works, Ramsay has stepped aside. Instead, he and Forsythe, who’s working in Fort McMurray, are two of the most powerful Canadian rugby forwards not playing this year. A lack of stability in the forward pack hindered the Bays in the final stretch last season, when the club was ousted by the Vikes in the Rounsefell quarterfinal, Rushton said. “Last year, we were undefeated until late in the season. We had issues in the front row, injuries with the forward (pack), and we weren’t able to fill those spots with consistency. It hurt us by impacting components of the lineouts and the stability of the scrums.” True to form, the Bays have been solid again this season, playing behind a starting front row of Scott Warren, J.T. Rowbotham and Russ Ward. But Warren and Ward are hurt, and despite this weekend’s bye, Rushton was doubtful that either

Progress 2012 An In-depth look at the Greater Victoria Economy Continuing last year’s successful edition, the Black Press team will update readers on what drives Victoria’s business climate. Publish Date: Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Jeff Hassler is tackled in his debut with James Bay by Burnaby Lake’s Joe Dolesau during the Bays’ 28-13 win at MacDonald Park on Saturay (March 31).

Ontario Blues vs. Cdn. Maple Leafs ■ The Canadian Maple Leafs, national development squad, will test the Ontario Blues at Langford’s Canadian Rugby Centre of Excellence on Saturday (April 7). ■ Kick off is 7 p.m. at Bear Mountain Stadium. Tickets

will be 100 per cent for the Bays’ road match against Abbotsford (1-9) on April 14. But with three games remaining, the coach isn’t worried about another lapse, and is confident with veterans Francis Yoon and Danny Hrycyk moving from the reserve squad into the premier club’s front row. “Franny and Hrycyk have

plenty of experience. That’s where depth is so important in rugby.” Depth, and recruiting. First year Bays Zac Coughlan (Nfld.), 22, and Canadian-raised ex-pat Adam Drury (U.S.A.), 32, have been a huge factor in the back row this season. And with late-comer Tyler Ardon, 20, a Canadian sevens player, the Bays just got another boost up front. All three are powerful, and bring a high level of physicality to the game, Rushton said. Also new this season is Jeff Hassler, 21, from Calgary. Hassler will help alleviate Hugo Belanger’s absence in the backs. Belanger, had assumed team’s captaincy this year but is likely be out the rest of the season with an injury. Scrum half Spencer Dalziel will now wear that crown. sports@vicnews.com

DEATHS

In Loving Memory of Daniel Bo Hopkins March 11,1995 - April 1, 2012 Daniel Hopkins was born in Duncan BC, March 11 1995. Daniel was a member of Quamichan Reserve Cowichan First Nation tribes. Daniel passed away April 1, 2012. He peacefully found his way to Heaven surrounded by the one's he loved. Such a little guy with a big heart! He loved people and helping others. Daniel was a gentle boy so happy in life with a great sense of humour. Daniel loved being one of the boys and looked up to his older siblings. They say goodbyes are forever, but we know we will meet again. We will never forget the good times we all have shared. Remembered as a loving brother and son by his devoted mother Deloris Hopkins and father Robert Hopkins, sisters Stacey Thorne and Louis Hopkins and brothers Anthony Thorne, James Thorne, Eli Hopkins and Robert Jr. Hopkins and many aunts, uncles, cousins, niece's and nephews. You'll be in our hearts forever. Loved by many, Daniel was taken too soon in life. He will be missed dearly. Service to be determined. "The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air, the fragrance of the grass, speaks to me. The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky, the rhythm of the sea, speaks to me. The strength of the Àre, the taste of salmon, the trail of the sun, and the life that never goes away, they speak to me. And my heart soars." Chief Dan George

Four generations help create award-winning street rod At the age of 82, Annie Dosen is still excited that her son, grandson, great-grandson and granddaughter’s husband chose a 1938 Chevrolet coupe to ALYN EDWARDS build into a world CLASSIC class street rod. Her RIDES late husband owned a similar car in 1948 when he proposed marriage. That “fat fendered” 1930s car has always remained her favourite. After winning many top honours for the past year’s shows, Ken Dosen’s über-customized coupe was a feature at the Vancouver International Auto Show, the year’s premier display of the auto industry’s best styling and engineering. Dosen’s atomic orange beauty shone brightly in the spotlight. Dosen, from Port Coquitlam, east of Vancouver, had an uncle who helped him restore his first car at age 16 – a V8-powered 1964 Falcon coupe. He passed on knowledge gained to his son, Stephen, who also got his first car at 16. It was a similar story for Dosen’s son-in-law Rod Siemens. Rod and Steve are both industrial and commercial electricians. Four-year-old Jake Siemens spent hours inside his grandfather’s shop helping to build the car by stripping wires while learning about tools and mechanics. Like his father, his favourite shows on television involve hot rods,

Four-year-old Jake Siemens helps “Grandpa Hotrod” Ken Dosen hook up the transmission linkage during the construction of the award-winning street rod. Ken Dosen and the 1938 Chevrolet street rod completed with help from son-in-law Rod Siemens and son Steve.

custom cars and cruise-in car shows. The car project received enthusiastic support from Bev Dosen, who loves the old coupes and has fond memories of a 1939 Chevrolet pickup truck she and Ken once owned. Ken Dosen followed a friend’s lead to Port Orchard, Wash. and the 1938 Chevrolet coupe. The owner had brought the car up from California. He had bought most of the necessary parts and started to build it into a street rod when he ran into health problems. Dosen, a glazier by trade, brought the car to Canada for a complete ground-up rebuild. Son Steve and son-in-law Rod said

they were both in to help restore the car which everyone agreed “would just be a driver.” It has turned into a piece of rolling art and a one-of-a-kind street rod Continued on Pg. B3

that drives perfectly but usually travels to car shows in a trailer. The old Chevy coupe features a modern Chevrolet 350 cubic inch engine coupled to an automatic overdrive transmission, power rack and pinion steering, disc brakes, full cream leather interior with snake skin inserts and a sound system that fills the car with music. LED lights highlight brighten both the interior and the distinctive grille. With two electricians in the family, the wiring is a work of art and is largely invisible, tucked in behind the dashboard and interior panels. The amazing paint job was completed by local “Painter” Bob Harris, with ghost flames laid out by

Curtis Hamm of Maple Ridge. It took 2,500 hours of labour to build the car with 150 hours involved in the painting. Family members did all the work except for the paint and some upholstery work by family friend Frank Van Veen. “What I am most proud of is that I was able to do this car with my family,” Ken Dosen says. Steve Dosen echoes that sentiment. “The most rewarding thing for me is building this car with my dad and now to see how the car puts a smile on people’s faces.” Rod Seimens knows his four-year-old son is following his interest as a real car guy. “Jake is always happy when he is in the garage with us and calls Ken ‘Grandpa Hotrod’.” Ken Dosen says the car will stay in the family. “We had a lot of fun building it and that’s why it’s never going to be sold. It will be passed on.”

Cadillac XTS lighting reflects luxury METROLAND MEDIA CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

New techniques in lighting design are adding to the dramatic presence of luxury cars, while also providing real-world functional benefits. The all-new 2013 Cadillac XTS luxury sedan contains more than 20 separate light sources that “greet� the driver in a carefully choreographed sequence when the key fob is pressed. The new XTS, launching in the second quarter, includes LEDs embedded in the door handles, Cadillac-signature vertical LEDs in the headlights and taillights and ambient lighting in and around the car’s perimeter. In addition to extending the

car’s design signature, the lighting provides convenience and helps provide additional security to drivers in parking lots at night. Cadillac designers took advantage of consistent advances in LED technology to use lighting to convey drama and space alongside functional benefits. On the inside, cooler blue lights accent the car’s controls and instrumentation while warmer lights highlight passenger areas. The palette of colours also needed to harmonize with the interior colours as well as light emanating from the Cadillac User Experience main LCD screen and instrument panel. The task was to make the ambient lighting enhance the experience and minimize distraction.
