Councillors stand by their tax hike KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Taxpayers hoping for council to reverse its decision on a tax hike will likely be in for disappoint-

ment as councillors who voted in favour of the 13.6 increase are standing by their decision. More than 100 Campbell Riverites marched from Robert Ostler Park to city hall protesting the

residential tax increase before last week’s council meeting. More than 130 packed council chambers to listen in on the meeting. Taxpayers on the Campbell

River Tax Revolt Facebook page say they plan to come out in even larger numbers this coming Tuesday – when council is expected to give first three readings to the budget – to have their voices heard and sway councillors who voted for the tax increase. Councillors Ryan Mennie, Claire Moglove, Mary Storry and Larry Samson voted in favour while Mayor Walter Jakeway and councillors Andy Adams and Ron Kerr were opposed. It doesn’t look like that will change. Mennie said he could appreciate that people came to the meeting to have their voices heard but he hasn’t changed his mind. “It certainly was heard,” Mennie said. “While I appreciate them coming forward and giving their perspective, my perspective hasn’t changed. I appreciate the community dialogue and it’s never been the intention of council to stifle that dialogue but I still think I represent a large part of the community with my perspective.” Mennie also noted it wasn’t a “snap decision” but based on extensive information from the community as well as from this year’s and last year’s budget cycles. Mayor Jakeway said last week he was confident taxpayers could change council’s decision on the 13.6 per cent (7.1 per cent after reduced user fees are factored in) residential tax increase. “I don’t have any doubt at all, if they respond en masse,” Jakeway said. “It just takes one vote and it becomes 4-3 (the other way).”

But the chances of that happening now look pretty slim. Coun. Storry said she confidently voted in favour of the tax increase because of the lengthy discussions council and city staff have had during the budget creation process. “The only reason I would reconsider anything is if new information was brought to council,” Storry said. “It would have to be something that was missed during the debate or incorrect information that I based my decision on.” Coun. Samson said the same thing as Storry – no new information has come forward to change his mind. “When you make a decision as serious as the budget that was voted on, unless there’s extenuating circumstances, the vote that you take at that time, you normally thought about it long and hard,” Samson said. “Having said that, I’m still talking with people who both agree with the budget Continued on A3

Glass office to ‘set the tone’ for new downtown development PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The former downtown “eyesore” is expected to be transfor med into a new m u l t i - s t o re y h e a d office for Seymour Pacific Developments. “We are proud to share this news with the community, our staff, and our clients,” said company owner and founder Kris Mailman in a news release. “I started the company here and even though we’ve grown nationally, I wanted to maintain the head office in Campbell River.” Demolition began Monday on the block of derelict buildings located directly across from Seymour’s current head office, a stone’s throw away from city hall. The block of commercial buildings – on land bordered by Alder, Dubeau and Beech streets, and St. Ann’s Road – have been mostly empty for several years and were becoming decrepit. The properties were recently bought by Seymour Pacific and Mailman wants to

build a four- to five-storey head office for his growing team. Over the last seven years, the company has grown from five people to over 250 employees across Western Canada. Head office has grown from five people to approximately 80 people. According to company CEO Sean Roy, Seymour Pacific has built approximately 3,000 rental units spread across Western Canada, which are managed by Broadstreet Properties. The company owns the building it is currently in and look to either lease or sell the office space once the new building is complete. Roy said plans should be ready for the city by mid-May with an anticipated start date of Aug. 1. The project is expected to take a year to complete. The glass-clad building will be built to accommodate current staff and potential future growth. “It will set the tone for new construction in downtown Campbell River,” said Roy. “This

is absolutely needed for us…we’re very excited to get into our new office space.” The company founder is also happy to remain in the city. “This has been a great community for myself and my family,” Mailman said. “In some ways this is a monument to the fact that you can do business in Campbell River. This is a positive move for us as a company and for the downtown as well.” Plans call for offices incorporating approximately 40,000 to 50,000 square feet. Energy-efficient LEED standards are being incorporated into the design and it is anticipated that the new building will enhance public spaces with improved sidewalks, lighting and innovative landscaping. “We were looking at a number of locations in Campbell River and were of the opinion that we wanted to remain downtown,” said Sean Roy, CEO of Seymour Pacific Developments and Broadstreet Proper-

Demolition of Campbell River’s downtown eyesore began in earnest Monday morning. The empty block is expected to be transformed into a new four- to five-storey head office for Seymour Pacific Developments and Broadstreet Properties.

ties. “The opportunity presented itself and we are pleased to help revitalize the downtown core. “The City of Campbell River is open for business and they have been great to work with during the process.” The company anticipates that demolition will be completed by the end of April.

Budget: Councillors to stand their ground Continued from A1 and who disagree with the budget.” Samson pointed out that council is done with service cuts and has already taken money from reserves to balance a $3.6 million deficit. The tax increase was the third option. “To re-visit the bud-

get – where would we go from here?” Samson said. “But having said all this, we’re constantly looking at budget deficiencies.” Coun. Moglove, the fourth councillor to vote in favour of the tax increase, was not available for comment but a few days after the March 27 vote, took

exception to the mayor advocating for a tax revolt and not supporting council’s decision. “I’m concerned,” she said. “Once council has made a decision, it is the mayor’s duty and responsibility to speak in support of that majority decision. The mayor is the spokesperson for council and

as such, the comments attributed to him are very disappointing.” Moglove also advocated for a tax increase over cuts to the existing level of city services. If council passes first three readings of the budget bylaw on Tuesday night, the budget is expected to be adopted on May 1.

Enlarging dump would be costly KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Expanding the Comox Valley dump, and closing Campbell River’s, is the cheapest option for dealing with the region’s solid waste, says a waste consultant. The Comox Strathcona Waste Management Board has been working to update its solid waste plan for nearly two years. Three shortlisted options have emerged from the process. The board is considering either expanding both Comox Valley and Campbell River landfills, or expanding one of the two. Maura Walker, the consultant working on the solid waste management plan, said expanding just the Campbell River landfill, which is nearing capacity, is the most expensive option at $71

per tonne. “Expanding the Comox Valley landfill option becomes the least costly because it requires less transport than the other option,” Walker told city council at last week’s Tuesday meeting. An expansion to the Comox Valley dump comes with a price tag of $62 per tonne while expanding both dumps would be slightly more, at $68 per tonne. Wa l ke r s a i d t h e Campbell River landfill serves 45,000 people and processes 30,000 tonnes of waste each year. The dump is rapidly running out of space and is expected to be full by this fall. A transfer station has been built to accommodate the waste, which is then trucked to the Pigeon Lake landfill in Cumberland. The Pigeon Lake landfill serves 68,000 people and receives

40,000 tonnes of waste each year. Walker said there is approximately four to six years left until it’s expected to reach its full capacity. Todd Baker, an engineer with consulting group AECOM, said the Campbell River dump could potentially be expanded to the north east which would allow for 40-50 more years of use. However, a new dump would have to be built next to the existing one with a liner to treat leachate, a potentially toxic liquid. “We know if one or both of the facilities are to expand, it will require upgrades...to be in compliance with the Ministry of Environment’s criteria,” Baker said. Improvements would include an engineered system for leachate treatment, landfill gas management and a membrane that would

cover the landfill to ensure no air or water escapes from the site. The Solid Waste Management Board has also looked at developing waste-to-energy technologies, and moving away from traditional landfills. Baker said vendors have provided costs for those technologies and the board has determined the cost of a small scale facility would be more expensive than expanding one or two landfills. A small burn facility in the Comox Valley would cost $143 per tonne while a large scale facility in Campbell River would cost $88 per tonne. But the region does not produce enough waste to run a largescale facility, said Baker. “To be cost effective, waste from the outside would be required,” he said. “Waste from

the Lower Mainland would be required to keep costs down. We will continue exploring with outside regions such as Metro Vancouver.” Walker said the Solid Waste Management Board is in the process of gathering community input into the solid waste plan, and, out of 14 scheduled open houses throughout the region, 11 of them are complete. “We’re sort of at the preliminary stage as to what we’re going to do moving forward and we want public input,” Walker said. “We’re really trying to get the word out.” Once the final plan is compiled, it has to be sent to the provincial minister of environment for approval. T he Solid Waste Management Plan is expected to be implemented between 2012 and 2022.

Planning for Life Changes Is it better to appoint one 2X14 Executor or two Co-Executors? Both options have advantages and disadvantages. If you PLANNING FORGurdeep LIFE Sidhu appoint Co-Executors it may work well if both Executors cooperate with each other, contribute their knowledge and support the dif¿cult decision making. Many of my clients have commented that this option worked well for them. However, if the Co-Executors don’t like each other, don’t communicate well, or have personality issues, then it could cause delays and be costly for the estate. Appointing one suitable Executor is the most commonly used option. Under this option, your sole Executor will be responsible for making all decisions on behalf of your estate. The decisions can be made quickly without the necessity of having other people agree to them. The disadvantage of appointing only one Executor may be if you do want to appoint your children as your Executors, but none of them are fully suitable. Further, he/she may not communicate with the bene¿ciaries, causing disputes in the family. The decision to appoint a sole Executor or Co-Executors depends on the capabilities of the individuals you are considering as Executor. This article is supplied by Gurdeep Sidhu, CGA. Notary Public.

Mayor Jakeway says Mounties deserve a pay hike KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Mayor Walter Jakeway says he’s still in the dark over expected RCMP pay raises. Jakeway said he was aware the RCMP contract was up for negotiation with the federal government, but hasn’t received any new information since.

The B.C. government signed a new 20-year RCMP contract on March 21, which put an end to the province’s threat to terminate the Mounties and form a provincial police force, similar to Ontario. However, municipalities must ratify the new agreement or give two year’s notice of withdrawal from the

RCMP and either form its own police force or partner with another community’s municipal force. Several cities have signed on already but Campbell River isn’t one of them. “I wouldn’t sign it until I find out how it affects us,” Jakeway said. “We knew something was coming but

we didn’t know if a raise was coming or not. Me personally, I can be ready for it. “I don’t think we’re in a position to form our own police force.” Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said cities were advised months ago that raises of 1.5 per cent were possible this year but neither the province

“Public safety is number one.” Municipalities still could get a break. B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said the federal gover nment has assured her that RCMP administrative savings of $195 million will partly be allocated to cities and could offset the pay raises, and possibly even lower their costs. Jakeway said the city will easily be able to absorb the RCMP budget and expects the issue to come before council in the next couple of weeks. “It’ll be fun to watch,” he said.

Feds must spend money wisely The Conservative government’s reputation for sound economic management is taking a big hit with revelations from the auditor-general about the process used to obtain F-35 fighter jets. The new jets were known to cost We say: Being about $25 billion, even before the last more accountable election. Yet the government and Conservative candidates consistently is the least they said the cost would be $14.7 billion. This was based on figures from could do the defence department, which was given far too much sway in selecting the new jets. It is obvious that they were the department’s preference, and everything it did was designed to get

the government to go along. That’s where the Conservatives fell down. Whether it’s because the party has a stronger interest in defence issues than its Liberal predecessor, or because the ministers involved were relatively new to office (many of the decisions go back to 2006, the year the Conservatives took office), not enough tough questions were asked. Costs kept rising, and it is quite likely that the Conservative caucus had no knowledge of how quickly costs were jumping. It appears from Auditor-General Michael Ferguson’s report that at least some members of cabinet did know, and they should have blown the whistle when it became clear that costs were going

up astronomically. To the government’s credit, it has now frozen spending on the fighter jet replacement program and has promised to be more accountable about decisions on the jets. It has also said it will be more diligent when making future decisions. Members of cabinet who make decisions about government spending need to treat every decision as if it was their own money. Taxpayers are paying plenty of their hard-earned income to the federal government, and their money should not be wasted because one department is able to hijack the procurement process. Just because government is big is no reason it can’t spend wisely. – Black Press

Celebrate Campbell River It is time to stand up and celebrate Campbell River. My husband and I moved here twelve years ago and are delighted to say we are staying here in retirement. This community is welcoming and cosmopolitan. Recently we purchased a patio home at Willow Green and have had the pleasure of working with local realtors (Ted and Terri), developer (Nigel and Carolyn with NVH), trades-people and businesses (Denise and Sheri at Denise Mitchell Interiors; Kathy at Splashes; Stan and Karen at Trendwest; Larry at Madman McKay; Don at Van Isle; Andrew, electrician; Shane, Gloria, and Corrine at United Carpet, and Stacey at Ladybug Landscape Design). Everyone has treated us with respect and worked hard to make our move to our new home successful. It has been an amazing experience and a pleasure to invest back in the community we believe in. Like the local businesses, I trust our mayor and council are also working to make Campbell River a great place to live in. They have a mandate to show vision and thoughtful planning for the future of our wonderful community. I place trust in them to respectfully Continued on A9

That sucking and swishing is our wine-loving logger

Conversations with Mike By Paul Rudan

The stillness of the lush spring morning was obliterated by the earsplitting sound of a sucking vortex. The city vacuum truck was no where in sight, but the roar continued as if someone had a fired up a jet engine in downtown Campbell River. I watched as the whirlwind pulled a baby stroller from the firm grip of a mother as it went wheeling across Spirit Square at tremendous speed with the child yelling, “Whe-e-e-e-ee-e-e...” From the other side of Shoppers Row, a small dog was yanked straight out of its collar. It continued yapping as it tumbled across the intersection until stopped with a thunk at the base of Big Logger Mike’s pole. Little Fido might have been sucked

straight up the spar too, but the vortex suddenly halted and was replaced by washing machine-like swishing sound. It all came to an end with an almighty “gulp” followed by a satisfied “Ahh, ya!” “You’re not drinking mouthwash again for that cheap buzz?” I inquired of Logger Mike. “Hardly,” he replied with an egotistical sneer. “I was just sampling the 2011 Siegerrebe...delicately acidic, not overly fruity and with a lush complexity not typically found in relatively young Island wines...” His voice tailed off as he scribbled some more in his book of tasting notes. I was too surprised to even respond,

but then I got thinking, “Where did you score that?” “From the Wine Islands Vintners Association fourth annual tasting in the Crystal Ballroom at the Empress,” he responded with a sniff. “I think the wine maker at Starling Lane Winery did a remarkable job with this varietal.” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing from our Lucky-sucking man on the pole. Then I thought back some more. “Hey, I was at that tasting and I don’t recall seeing an eight-foot-tall, all-yellow man with an axe,” I said. He smiled knowingly, “I’m pretty good at disguises. You probably didn’t see me at North Island College’s Third Course Wine Festival either.”

I shook my head in amazement. “So, when did you start drinking wine?” I asked. “When you weren’t even a glimmer in the old man’s eye,” he said with a wink. “But I’ve only seen you drink beer,” I replied. “Well, yes, while I do enjoy a good brewski, I prefer to support our Island wine makers. They do good,” he said, as he hoisted his glass and gave it a swirl. He stopped, took another sip and then the sucking began again as he imbibed in the ritual of proper tasting. The dog ran, the woman and her baby fled, and I just managed to slam the truck door closed before the roof started flying off city hall.

‘Unconscionable’ Continued from A1 work together to do just that. Unfortunately Mayor Jakeway’s response and actions regarding the budget and tax increase demonstrate disrespect for our community. This comment is not in response with how he voted on the budget, but rather the disrespect he demonstrated once the Finance Committee voted. If he had said he wanted it on the record that he was not in agreement with the decision that would have been one thing. To say the public is being screwed is quite another. He is directly referring to his fellow council members and that is unconscionable. To say that he does not follow the rules is troubling. For those that support this man’s actions I ask, what happens when he bowls over an issue you support with his steam-roller style? What if no-one followed the rules? Mayor Jakeway’s comments reflect the view that he is right and the rest of the team’s view is worth naught. Like a truculent child, Mayor Jakeway had a major temper tantrum. This is unbecoming of our mayor and does not bode well for future leadership. We need thoughtful and measured response, council who listens to the community, and a mayor and councillors who support decisions of the whole. I challenge Mayor Jakeway to do this in the future. I am one of the 92 per cent, as reported in the newspaper poll, supporting council’s Finance Committee’s approval regarding the overall 7.1 per cent tax increase for Campbell River. We no longer have a mill to offset taxes and I am proud to be a member of a community who pulls together and accepts responsibility for building a sustainable future. Penny Gosselin Campbell River

The election is over I’ve just read the critique of our Mayor by the Reverend David Fitzsimmons. His comment on percentage of votes is really off the wall. I read lot of news through my Yahoo email account, and the lunatic fringe from the Liberal and NDP supporters that can’t fathom Mr. Harper having won a majority, sit down, one after another and start throwing around percentages. The funny part of all that is had

Concerns about electric cars I read with great concern that Council has taken the first of three steps to approve electric cars for use on city streets. I have many concerns for the safety of their operators and occupants and that of other road users in our city. This concern is also shared by Transport Canada on their website. To quote: “Transport Canada does not encourage the use of LSVs on public roads, since they since they are not required to provide the same level of safety as mainstream vehicles.” To ensure a suitable level of safety, a passenger car maker has to design, manufacture and test for up to forty safety standards, whereas a LSV manufacturer is required to meet

only three minimal safety requirements. This is far fewer than for any other vehicle class that is regulated under the MVSA. Note: LSV safety standards do not match the safety standards of conventional larger, heavier motor vehicle classes that travel our public roads. This poses a real threat to people inside LSVs, if they are operated on public roads. There are no crash studies made on these vehicles, no air bags, no crumple zones, no padded areas, no construction standards that require them to meet any sort of realistic safety and construction standards. One could only imagine what would happen to the occupants of even a 10 Continued on A10

Electric cars: Do Workshop aims to increase emergency preparedness more research Continued from A1 kmh collision when it hits one of our signature diesel pickups with logger box and a tidy tank full of fuel in the back. Campbell Rivers already know how well the Electric bicycles have integrated with our traffic flow. It’s hardly a pleasure to encounter them riding 20 kmh in traffic and their users seem to, by in large, ignore the traffic laws. If council approves the electric cars, we will now add a vehicle with a maximum speed of 40 kmh to areas like Dogwood, Alder, Rockland and Galerno with their hills. We will have permitted another

“rock in the stream” around which other road users will have to flow. If these vehicles had a traditional fossil-fuel engine they would not be permitted on any road because they lack the required existing safety features. Because they have a slow speed electric motor, all the safety standards that save lives in the other vehicles on the road, are waived in the name of Environmentalism. I suggest that Council do some more research before they take the next step. Would you feel that your family is safe riding in one of these? Dave Hay Campbell River

Diversity Lives Here provides solutions to labour shortage Campbell River conference will help Island organizations find solutions

A

vailability of skilled personnel is one of the most urgent challenges faced by many businesses. Lack of available skilled personnel poses many problems for employers: the cost of hiring and training employees; the knowledge gap created when senior employees retire and newer employees are hired to fill the jobs; the problems created when a company has too few staff; and other issues that affect a business’s productivity, innovation and profitability. Filling the talent pool with diverse employees is one of the most effective ways to solve issues that arise from a labour shortage.

The Diversity Lives Here conference (May 9 and 10 in Campbell River) will help organizations on Vancouver Island find solutions to the many challenges presented by a lack of available, skilled personnel. Diversity Lives Here provides solutions to the skilled labour shortage that will help employers maintain their workforce while improving their bottom line. Diverse workforces increase innovation, productivity and profitability in an organization. By attracting and retaining skilled personnel, businesses have fewer costs associated with high turnover rates and training expenses. Furthermore, by

having a diverse talent pool, an employer can access not only international markets but also international communities within the local market, opening an organization to new customers and clients. “The Diversity Lives Here conference is about connecting with solutions in workforce development,� says Rachel Blaney, executive director of the Immigrant Welcome Centre of Campbell River. “As we face a labour shortage, welcoming diverse people into business will bring new perspectives and expand markets. Because we live in an increasingly global economy, having people in an organization who know multiple lan-

guages and cultural perspectives can open doors that were once closed.� Diversity Lives Here brings together a wide range of talented speakers and experts in diverse labour markets, from various industries and backgrounds, to help local business and community leaders address issues associated with the shrinking domestic workforce. Workshops will provide local organizations with vital information on the value of immigrant employees, credential evaluation, recruiting young professionals, the impact of retirees on the local economy and tips on hiring and retaining Aboriginal employees. “A diverse workforce gives business

a competitive edge,� says Colleen Evans, executive director of the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce. “Many businesses are reporting that increased diversity is becoming less about what they should do and more about who they are and what they have to do. Attracting and retaining the skilled workforce each business needs to compete means having enough people with the right skills, and the Diversity Lives Here conference is an excellent opportunity for businesses to address the skill gap and a shrinking domestic workforce.� Diversity Lives Here takes place on May 9 and 10 in Campbell River.

Elizabeth Reynolds will be one of the featured presenters at the Diversity Lives Here conference May 9-10.

Campbell River Living Couple ‘pays it forward’ after the loss of their son PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A

rt Webb and his wife Diane Zaschke spent a lot of time at the Campbell River Hospital in the weeks leading up to the death of their son Justin. After a horrendous nine-month battle with brain cancer, Justin Webb, just 20 years old, died suddenly on Sept. 4, 2011, just after he had been released from hospital to recover at home. His passing devastated the family. But rather than continue to mourn and grieve, Webb and Zaschke have chosen to celebrate Justin’s life and to give back to the community that was so giving to them during their time of need. “It’s what Justin would have wanted,” says Zaschke, 56. “This was one tragic story. It was awful for us, but it happens. That’s what we learned: Tragic things

happen every day and people need our help.” Justin spent his days in hospital virtually paralyzed and confined to his bed on the third floor where his parents took daily shifts sitting by his side. Now they’re back at the hospital, only this time they are seated at the table in the maternity lounge on the second floor. They’re here for the donation of two new delivery room carts to the maternity ward and they couldn’t be happier. “These are going to get used all the time,” says Zaschke. “We’re thrilled good things are still being done in Justin’s name.” At Justin’s Celebration of Life service, the family asked that in lieu of flowers, friends should donate to Cameryn’s Cause for Kids, a local charity which provides assistance to family’s with sick children. More than $2,000

came in and the money was used to buy the two new hospital-grade delivery room carts which cost approximately $2,600. “They look like furniture and that’s what we want in maternity, a family-like atmosphere,” says RN Debbie Arkwright, the clinical co-ordinator for the maternity unit. Webb, 67, says his son’s death was lifechanging for he and his wife. They were amazed by the support and generosity Justin received throughout his illness, and now they say it’s time to “pay it forward.” It started at Christmas time when they donated hours and hours to the Angel Tree project. That, says Webb, helped them get through the Christmas season without their son. They also donated their time to cook for a local soup kitchen, and have started their own small landscaping company, affec-

tionately named “Just In Time.” “We’re going to donate five per cent of our earnings to the cancer society. Granted, it won’t be a lot of money, but it’s a donation,” says Art. In addition, they have formed a team for the annual Relay For Life fundraiser in June. The team is called “Justin’s Journey” and they’re looking for team members to help raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. “It’s about the spirit of the community and the spirit of Justin,” says Zaschke. “(Art) and I don’t need anything. The one thing we need, we can’t get…the community helped Justin so much when he was ill, we can never thank them enough. We’re just trying to pay it forward.” To learn more, visit the Facebook page “Justin Webb in Loving Memory.”

Gospel singalong returns

S

pring is most definitely in the air, and along with the fresh daffs and dills is a bit of news, regarding something very special that started almost two years ago, here in our little city. In October 2010, a jolly old fella, by the name of Bob Bull, tweeked a local quartet singer, to think about starting up an evening of old time gospel songs. He said, “ Something in the line of Country, bluegrass, ol’ time Gospel greats, see what you can do.” Well, what ensued, was something that caught on like wildfire...igniting the Saturday night Gos-

pel singalongs, led by Steve Wray, and friends, including Corrina Kervin on bass, Mary Beddard Green on keyboards, Rob Beauchamp, on banjo, Floyd Lang on drums, and songsters Suzanne Lee and Shelly Wray, guitar and vocals. Now they are known as The River City Gospel Singers. Every month, folks from far and wide have come to enjoy a great and cozy time, singing so many of their favourite melodies, such as In the Garden, When the Saints..., I’ll Fly Away and many, more. The evening is interspursed with specials by people from all over town.

Wray has said, “There’s nothing like good music, and a happy atmosphere, to bring folks together. You can’t find us on Youtube, or facebook, but imagine, a cozy place, where over a hundred folks each night, just kinda hang out and sing, together, those old and dear songs.” We just hang our licence plates of denomination at the door, give you a hug and a handshake, and say come on in and set a spell. It’s just one of those times and places where you can shake off your cares, sit down , say hi to a neighbour if you like, and leave 90

Jan 19, 1953 – Apr 6, 2012

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Ross Yeoman at his home in Courtenay. He has gone home to the Lord after a short but valiant battle with cancer. Ross was born in Calgary and travelled the world with his parents while his father David was in the Air Force and his mother Hazel was a homemaker. It was when his parents were transferred to Comox Base that he met the love of his life Leslee at school in grade 9, and they married in 1973. Ross leaves behind four beautiful daughters Robyn (Ed), Shona, Shelley (Sean) and his youngest Meika and two adorable grand kids Hazel and Leroy and his loving wife of many years Leslee. Also he will be missed by his brother Nick (Judy), sister Wendy and three other brothers Kenny, Jimmy and Jerry and three sisters Rosemary, Debbie and Helene all from Alberta. He spent 35 years working at the mill in Campbell River till it closed and he chose to retire early. He was the happiest staying home, working on the house and property and looking after his grand kids. The family is very thankful for all the love and support from all who know us. There is no service now but a Celebration of Life will be held in the summer.

NIC introduces metal jewellery design program Ready for jewellery making to become more than just a hobby? NIC’s new Metal Jewellery Design program, starting September 2012 in Campbell River, will provide aspiring jewellery designers with the tools to do just that. The 28-week certificate program includes courses on jewellery history and design, Nor thwest Coast Aboriginal jewellery art, molding and casting, and gemmology, in addition to a course on business skills and commercial opportunities in jewellery design. The program focuses on metal techniques and hands-on time in the studio. Designed to stress the importance of individual

creativity and artistic endeavor, the courses will provide students with the opportunity to conceptualize and create their own designs, with guidance from a variety of instructors, all of whom are skilled jewellery makers themselves. Students will have the opportunity to work in copper, brass, silver and gold. Jan Hellerud, a jewellery-maker for the past 26 years and lead instructor in the new program, has been teaching the beginning Silversmithing Workshop at NIC for many years. Her students, many of whom return year-after-year, began asking for more. As a result, Jan talked with other artists about the idea of establishing a

full-time Certificate program in jewellery making at NIC. This fall, the dream of bringing together an accomplished group of jewellery-makers to offer a metal jewellery design program is finally coming to fruition. In Hellerud’s words, “This region is known for its quantity and quality of worldclass jewellery designers. This program will take advantage of that wealth of knowledge, allowing students to learn from a variety of experts in all aspects of jewellery techniques.� Not only are the instructors accomplished in the art of jewellery making, they also have extensive experience in designing and selling their

jewellery at festivals, fairs, art galleries, and even from their own studios or galleries. As a result, students will also learn the business side of jewellery making and proven strategies for promoting themselves and their work. Free information sessions will be offered on May 26 and June 14 at NIC’s Campbell River campus. Participants will be able to meet the instructors, learn about the courses, see jewellery making equipment and tools in use, and discover more about the field of

North Island College program will provide aspiring jewelley designers with the tools to make their craft into more than just a hobby.

Drive Smart BC Driving While Using 2X14 2X14 Hand Held Devices Any chance you might do another article on handheld device usage in BC? The first rider death of 2012 in Kelowna was caused by driver inattention to cell phone usage. I’ve attached a photo that was just taken this CHEV Saturday. WeTYEE actually took several - I was YEE CHEV driving, my wife was operating the camera. This particular one clearly shows what has the driver’s attention. Traffic was not at a standstill - it was flowing at 60 km/h, and there was plenty of vehicles around on a six-lane highway. The high-res version of this photo plus the one with his license plate (and a clear shot of his phone to his ear) have been handed over to the Kelowna RCMP. There’s not much that I can add to this person’s request to continue to highlight the dangers of taking your attention away from the driving task. He’s clearly had enough of seeing this selfish, uncaring behaviour around himself and his family when he is driving and intends to do something about it. If someone from the Kelowna Detachment takes action it is going to be very difficult for this driver to explain away his actions! I just hope that they don’t end up becoming part of a road rage incident when the offending driver realizes that a photo has been taken. Is any call or text so important that you have to respond to it while driving? If you must say yes, you are fooling yourself and endangering everyone. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience. To comment or learn more, please visit www.drivesmartbc.ca.

Mom: Riley faces long road to recovery KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Two-and-a-half yearold Riley Dunsmore looks like a healthy young boy as he plays with his neighbourhood friends and zips by on his scooter. But take a closer look and it’s clear Riley is fighting a battle that his friends can only imagine. Riley is fighting to recover from severe burns he suffered while camping March 17 at Upper Campbell Lake with his mom Cami Gareau and dad Ronnie Dunsmore. Riley tripped on what Gareau believes was a stick and fell belly down into the campfire while his mom was preparing dinner. “I just grabbed him,” Gareau said after Riley’s ski jacket ignited. “Panick, I guess. Shock. It was a gut reaction to just grab him and lay him down on his face. Then I flipped him over but his chest was still on fire so I used my hands to put him out.” G a re a u s a i d s h e bur ned her fingers but it was only minor compared to the damage Riley suffered. The flames leapt up and bur nt Riley’s neck,

cheeks, tongue, hands and arms. Gareau said she flew down Highway 28 and arrived with Riley at Campbell River Hospital around 7 p.m. Gareau said doctors put cool compresses on his burns and his skin started to peel. Riley was then flown to B.C. Children’s Hospital and arrived around midnight. Riley was immediately taken in for surgery to check for damage to his throat. Gareau said the twohour wait for Riley to come out of surgery was agonizing. “It was hell waiting,” Gareau said. “I paced and cried.” She said doctors told her Riley stopped breathing while on the operating table because the morphine he had been given earlier all kicked in at once. “The first time I saw him, he had a tube in his throat,” Gareau said, fortunately there was no long-term damage to his lungs or throat. But Riley is not out of the woods yet. A plastic surgeon has been monitoring the bubbles that have formed on his hands and is concerned the burns are healing from the inside, instead of out as they should

at Saratoga. All proceeds will go to Riley’s burn recovery. Rides home from the dance will be provided. Gareau said Riley’s spirits are high and he is slowly recovering. “He’s a very active kid and it hasn’t slowed him down much,” Gareau said. “He’s a very strong little boy, in good spirits, and very happy during the day. He’s always on the go. It’s just going to be a long road to recovery.”

be. Gareau said if they don’t start to heal properly, Riley will have to have surgery to cut out the damaged skin and replace it with skin grafts. “He told me I’m looking at two months in Vancouver if he has to have skin grafts,” Gareau said. The family is already making trips back and forth from Vancouver once a week. Since the accident, Riley has had five burn baths, which can only be done at Children’s Hospital. During the baths, Riley is sedated and soaked in special soap which allows doctors to peel dead skin from his body using tweezers. Then polysporin is applied to the burns. Riley has burn baths every Monday and undergoes hyperbaric chamber treatments in Victoria. The treatment improves the body’s natural healing process by the inhalation of oxygen in a pressurized chamber. The only problem is the treatment is not covered by medical insurance and sessions cost $100 each time. So far, the family has racked up $500 in hyperbaric chamber treatments alone, not including the endless tubes of polysporin the

family has had to buy, as well as morphine pills. A group of family friends have pulled together to organize a dance on Riley’s behalf for this Saturday. Family friend Tina Adams said there are still a lot of tickets that need to be sold. The dance starts at 7 p.m., doors at 6:30 p.m. at the Quinsam Hall (761 Nursery Road). Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the Quinsam Liquor Store, Smart Style Salon, Bubble’s Laundry and Video Gallery

In recognition of National Volunteer Week (April 15 to 21), ICBC thanks volunteers in Campbell River and Gold River. In 2011, Speed Watch program volunteers in Campbell River and Gold River contributed over 160 hours to help reduce speedrelated crashes. Volunteers use radar and speed-reader boards to show drivers how fast they’re traveling. Research shows that it works – over 70 per cent of drivers traveling 10km/h over the speed limit slow down when they see a speedreader board. In 2011, local Lock Out Auto Crime prog r a m vo l u n t e e r s handed out more than 2,600 notices onto the windshields of vehicles, many with valuables in sight, offering common sense tips to the owners to protect them from auto crime. These volunteers also operate the Stolen Auto Recovery program in Campbell River and Gold River, and in 2011, they scanned approximately 11,400 licence plates to help identify stolen vehicles.
