A few dollars more for E&N rail repairs Corridor foundation needs $5.4M for bridges, trestles Metchosin painter Frank Mitchell sketches an outline of an oil painting with oil sticks at Albert Head Lagoon, a location where Emily Carr once painted.

Kyle Wells News staff

With the $15 million in place for repairing rail ties and relaunching a train service, attention is now being turned to the 48 bridges and trestles along the E&N rail route between Victoria and Courtenay. Island Corridor Foundation (ICF), needs another $5.4 million for the necessary upgrades to bridges and trestles to make the rail line usable for at least 10 years, according to an engineering analysis released this week. ICF chief operating officer Graham Bruce admits he has his work cut out for him, but said is confident that they will be able to find the money. “(We’re) not going to let this go,” Bruce said. “We’ll find (the money) somehow, somewhere, through a number of avenues.” To raise the initial $5.4 million, Bruce plans to approach a number of organizations including the Island Coastal Economic Trust. Beyond that, he was hesitant to give other names while the application process is still underway. Work needed on bridges and trestles involves new decking and some structural work. Near Goldstream park, the iconic Niagara Canyon bridge and Arbutus Canyon bridge, both from 1912, require hundreds of thousands of dollars in repairs. This is still a better outcome then anyone predicted. PLEASE SEE: Repairs, Page A4

Following the footsteps of Emily Painters hit scenic locales of Victoria’s most iconic artist Charla Huber News staff

Painters are spending the next few months following in Emily’s footsteps through the West Shore. Emily Carr that is. The West Shore Arts Council and Coast Collective gallery have joined forces to encourage artists to paint in locations across the region where Emily Carr created her art from the 1920s to the 1940s. Elaine Limbrick, of the West

Shore Arts Council, created Emily Carr, a guide to artistic & literary sites on the West Shore. The guide has a map of the 21 outdoor locations where Carr worked, based on Limbrick’s research. “It’s wonderful to get people out to where Emily painted,” Limbrick said at Albert Head Lagoon in Metchosin. “Even people on the West Shore don’t know about all these wonderful beaches.” The Coast Collective is calling all interested artists to join the project of creating a collection of art from the Carr locations, painted between April 1 to Oct. 25. Marcela Strasdas, a director at Coast Collective, said they are working on creating a calen-

dar of dates for each location so artists can meet and paint or create together. Artists can also go solo. At the end of October, the Coast Collective will accept art for an exhibit at West Shore Parks and Recreation. The top three paintings will earn the artists cash prices of $300, $200 and $100. Metchosin resident Frank Mitchell, a member of en plein air painting group Al Fresco, is excited to participate in the event. With oil sticks in hand, Mitchell begins to sketch out a scene at Albert Head Lagoon. Throughout the next few months Mitchell hopes to paint at each one of the locations on Limbrick’s map.

One location Mitchell and several other artists are leery about it Leechtown in Sooke. It is at the end of the Galloping Goose trail and then the artist must hike in. “Some places you don’t know exactly where she was,” Mitchell said. While Mitchell’s art won’t emulate the style of Carr, he has appreciation for her work. “She did her own thing from the start, she did the First Nations stuff which wasn’t what people did back then,” he said. Limbrick is pleased to see many of the landscapes Carr captured in her paintings haven’t changed much over the years. PLEASE SEE: Carr, Page A7

Bear Mountain relaunches development

IN BRIEF

Dumpster fire at Belmont school Langford Fire Rescue called West Shore RCMP to Belmont secondary school last Sunday at 11 a.m. to take a look at three garbage dumpsters that had been set on fire sometime earlier. By the time firefighters arrived the dumpsters were smoldering, but all three were damaged beyond use and must be replaced. The dumpsters were far enough away from the school that there was no risk of spreading fire to the building. “We’re hoping it’s not one of those grad pranks,” said RCMP Sgt. Max Fossum, “because that would be a pretty bad prank to do.”

Bear spray attack at bus exchange Two female teens and one 20-year-old male were sprayed with bear mace and had an iPhone stolen at the bus exchange on Station Avenue on Friday, April 14 at about 11:30 p.m. There were two other witnesses to the crime, but Fossum said that they were unfortunately too drunk at the time to be any good to RCMP. RCMP have no description of the suspect but believe his name is “John.” Two of the three victims were taken to the hospital to treat the bear spray.

Break and enter at Pharmasave On Sunday, April 15 at 6 a.m. RCMP responded to a break and enter at the Pharmasave Health Centre (Pacific) on Helmcken Road in View Royal. The door to the building had been smashed and the ATM machine inside the store had been pried open and pilfered. Fossum could not say how much money had been stolen but said that RCMP are looking at video surveillance for suspects. Anyone with information on any of these incidents can call West Shore RCMP at 250474-2264 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Company shifting from condos to lower density housing Edward Hill News staff

Bear Mountain’s hibernation is over. The renewed resort and real estate company is launching its first property development project since collapsing under a mountain of debt two years ago. Bear Mountain Land Holdings, owned by HSBC Bank, will start relatively small and prepare 12 single-family lots for sale within a month, and possibly 60 more lots if the market responds. Under ousted former CEO Len Barrie, Bear Mountain’s property development arm had built more than a thousand condos in highdensity buildings between golf course fairways. Marking a distinct departure from that thinking, the new owners are downshifting to more single family home neighbourhoods, and far fewer condos. “The future development plan for Bear Mountain is lower density neighbourhoods,” said Gary Cowan, CEO of Bear Mountain. “We see this as less a resort-centric development, and one more encompassing lower density and that capitalizes on the outdoor recreation opportunities on Bear Mountain.” For the first project, called the Hedgestone, the company will prepare and service 12 lots on Hedgestone Place, next to the Mountain course 18th fairway. Similar to previous lot development, contractors would build and sell the homes independent of Bear Mountain itself. “We are excited to start working with the building community again and to get activity happening on Bear Mountain,” Cowan said. “It’s good for Langford and for everybody up here. Getting real estate going is the next step to revitalize Bear Mountain.” The real estate arm of Bear Mountain will also prepare another 20 housing lots and then 40 lots in a phased build-out of the “Upper Hedgestone” which is on treed property between the 9th and 17th fairways of the

Bear Mountain CEO Gary stands near the Hedgestone site near the 18th hole, the first new property development at Bear Mountain since the company emerged from court restructuring in 2010. Mountain course. That will require a significant redesign of the course — the short 10th hole will be consumed by the development. Fortuitously, the unusual 19-hole links will easily shift to a standard 18. The Jack Nicklaus golf course design company that created the Mountain and Valley courses has approved of the alterations, Cowan said, which includes shortening the 9th hole.

“It’s good for Langford and for everybody up here. Getting real estate going is the next step to revitalize Bear Mountain.” –Gary Cowan Bear Mountain CEO “We are not changing (the golf course) casually,” he said. “We worked with Nicklaus Design to maintain the integrity and quality of the course.” On the north side of the 18th fairway, a long-idle crane looms over the concrete shell of the unrealized Highlander tower, halted after six storeys.

said Bear Mountain is working toward creating two separate condo buildings on top of the existing structure, each four to six storeys, about 150 units in total. When that project would proceed isn’t set. Cowan admits building atop the shell of the Highlander is an unusual concept, but said utilizing the existing structure makes economic sense. “There was a significant amount of money put into that project and we want to capitalize on the opportunity, rather than destroy it.” For the broader 500-hectare property, Bear Mountain plans to apply for rezoning with Langford to allow lower density neighbourhoods spread over more land, which would reduce the amount of greenspace and forest under the existing development plan. “We are in a process of revising all development plans at Bear Mountain to reflect lower density neighbourhoods,” Cowan said. “Under the existing zoning 90 per cent is multi-family –- highrise, high risk sites. “We think there is pent up demand for single family lots on Bear Mountain. We are doing this in phases and won’t get ahead of ourselves. We’ll invest as the market demand is there.”

Bear Mountain currently holds about 475 single family homes and 1,100 condominium units. Under the court-ordered division of assets, Bear Mountain Land Holdings has the right to build an additional 3,250 “doors” under the current zoning. “We anticipate less than that. We are working on how much less,” Cowan said. “Within the next nine months we’ll move forward with an orderly development plan with revised densities.” Under the court order, Romspen Mortgage Corp. acquired much of the commercial office and business space on Bear Mountain and CareVest Capital Inc. has rights to several hundred housing lots. Under the previous ownership, Bear Mountain was $300 million in debt before HSBC Bank initiated the creditor protection court action. CEO of Bear Mountain since July 2010, Cowan said it’s been a long process to create a plan that allows orderly, market-driven property development. “It’s been challenging, but now we are getting to the really enjoyable point of moving forward,” Cowan said. “We are really excited to arrive at the first new real estate project since we assumed ownership in 2010.”

Saanich police say they have seized the motorcycle seen barrelling down the Trans-Canada Highway at speeds reaching 300 km/h in a video posted online earlier this month. But on Wednesday officers were unsure whether they'd be able to even charge the man they believe was piloting the bike. “We don't believe the owner is the rider. At this point, any action that's taken is going to be against the registered owner,” said Sgt. Dean Jantzen. The owner of the blue 2006 Yamaha bike is an Esquimalt woman, and the suspected driver is her son, in his 20s, he said. The two-minute video, show-

ing the motorcycle dashboard and the driver's first-person view weaving in between vehicles, was posted to YouTube on April 8 and quickly came to the attention of police. The digital speedometer shows the bike hitting speeds of 299 km/h. On April 13 after receiving a number of tips about the identity of the possible rider, police found and seized the motorcycle from an Esquimalt residence. “Our forensic technicians have determined that this is the same bike that is in the video. That's conclusive,” Jantzen said. Earlier this week police put out a call for witnesses who saw the motorcycle weaving through traffic between Saanich and Langford. It is believed the video was shot on April 5 or 6 in the late afternoon.

“We have had a handful of witnesses come forward,” Jantzen said Wednesday. “Absent more specific information that clarifies who the rider might be — and that could happen in any number of ways: witnesses, photographs, video — we can only establish ownership of the bike and take action against the registered owner," he added. Under the Street Racing Legislation, Jantzen said police are looking to revoke the licence of the bike's owner, and seek to seize the bike under the Civil Forfeiture Act. As of the Gazette deadline on Wednesday, no charges had been laid against either the owner or suspected driver. Anyone who witnesses incident can call Saanich police at 250-475-4321.

“All of it is manageable and when you look at those structures and the age of them, they’re in very good shape compared to what we were anticipating,” Bruce said. Rail tie replacement, a separate project, is anticipated to start in October 2012, after finalizing government funding and going through a tender process. Associated Engineering, a consultant located in Langford, prepared the analysis over five months on behalf of the Ministry of Transportation and

the ICF. Money for the report came from the province, which approved an early $500,000 of its $7.5 million commitment for repairing the E&N tracks. The report also outlines the money needed for the next 20 and 30 years. In total maintenance and repair will cost $34 million over 30 years. Once the rail system is up and running, however, money will come from passenger and freight users for ongoing upkeep. Bruce said they want to do the job right and not just patch the railway up. By ensuring

upgrades will keep the system going for at least 10 years, the hope is to be able attract more businesses and industry to utilize the rail system, knowing that it is reliable. “This wasn’t just a fly-off and get it running, and then the next thing you know you’re shut down because of this, that or the other,” Bruce said. “The whole plan was built on getting passenger service back and running for a minimum of 10 years.” For more about the Island Corridor Foundation, see www. islandrail.ca.

View Royal Community Energy and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Plan

DRAFT PLAN OPEN HOUSE April 24th, 2012 4pm – 7pm View Royal Town Hall

An architect’s rendition of the new View Royal fire hall for the 300-block of Island Highway.

Design finalized for new fire station in View Royal Kyle Wells News staff

View Royal has settled on a design and site plan for its new fire hall. The project’s architects and managers, along with View Royal fire Chief Paul Hurst, were at an open house in early April to explain features of the design to the public. Hurst said that they took the concerns and ideas heard at the last public meeting, held Feb. 29, and made changes accordingly. “People’s input is important. We’ve been listening to what people have been saying,” Hurst said. “I want this project to be successful and I want the community to have a successful project.” Where the two-level building is situated on the 2.4 acre property at the 300-block of Island Highway has been altered to best utilize the site and improve traffic flow in and out. It has been oriented to face Island Highway, directly across from Burnett Road, to improve access to the property. Traffic has been a concern of nearby residents throughout the design process. To address this, one entrance to the site has been removed from the design to reduce traffic turning on and off Island Highway.

Public and staff parking will use one exit, while volunteer firefighters will use another entrance closer to truck bays. There will be separate access for fire trucks. Noise has been given special attention, and a sound engineer went so far as to measure sound levels on the site. The building is set in the lowest part of the bowl-shaped property. The bank behind the site will be sloped in such a way that sound will bounce upwards, rather then reflected toward the road or toward houses behind the site. “If you can’t see the source, you won’t hear it as much,” Adam Fawkes, architect and senior partner with Hughes Condon Marler Architects said. “(Sound) is greatly muffled and reduced if you can’t see it.” Landscaping will be designed to also reduce noise and will use plants that absorb sound. Unlike a proposed firehall training facility in Langford, Hurst said that any training that goes on at the new View Royal fire hall will have minimal noise for neighbours. “Those are two very different scenarios,” Hurst said. “It’s a hot-button issue with some of the residents and I want make sure that it’s dealt with. I’m pretty confident this should solve it.”

The building itself is of a West Coast design and incorporates wood features, along with dark brick. The main truck bay is post and beam, with glass doors showcasing the trucks. Equipment and firefighters’ facilities will be on one side of the building, while on the opposite side will be offices, a public entrance, the emergency operations centre and community training facilities. Hurst said that now the design is complete a final price estimate should be reached within a matter of weeks. That amount then has to go to council for approval. “I’m happy so far with the outcome. It’s been a long road but now hopefully we’ve addressed the concerns of the neighbours.” View Royal plans to hold a referendum or counter petition process to seek public permission to borrow money to build the hall. View Royal Mayor Graham Hill was at the open house and said that he likes what he sees. “I think it’s very well done,” Hill said. “It’s taken advantage of the public input, it reflects the nature of the area. It’s been based on some good care and attention to money matters.” news@goldstreamgazette.com

The Town is holding an Open House and is seeking your input on the draft plan. The Town of View Royal has received grants to develop a Community Energy and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Plan. The Community Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Plan will help residents and businesses with efforts to reduce their carbon footprint by setting achievable targets and establishing priorities for action. Climate change is a global issue, but steps to reduce the Town’s contribution to this growing problem depend on the action of everyone – residents, businesses, institutions and government.

By late next week, the Wild Animal Rescue Centre in Metchosin, should be connected to piped tap water. Connecting to regional water been a long time coming for the SPCA facility, which has been trucking in water for years. Occasionally, staff have forgotten to order water, forcing the facility to go into ultra conservation mode while scrambling to arrange delivery. The waterline couldn’t come at a better time. The facility uses most of its water during the summer months when it houses and treats the majority of the animals it receives over the year. “We are very excited,” said Kari Marks, Wild ARC manager. Wild ARC has been fundraising for years and has even had the District of Metchoson apply for grants on its behalf to help pay for the expensive job of connecting to the Capi-

Wild ARC photo

Wild ARC’s new aquatic centre, seen here under construction in 2011, will have a constant supply of fresh water thanks to a waterline project finishing this week. tal Regional District waterline. The waterline project was given the go-ahead when the late Gladys Cavaghan, an Oak Bay resident, left the B.C. SPCA a $3.5 million legacy gift last year, the largest gift in the organization’s history. The donated money was specified for infrastructure projects in Greater Victoria, and the Wild ARC project fit the bill. Of that large donation, $430,000 was earmarked for the waterline connection.

The facility depends on clean water to care for the nearly 2,000 animals that pass through the centre each year. Whether for laundry, dishes, feeding or cleaning, the water is always in high demand. “We have to very careful when cleaning a dirty cage, (so animals don’t spread illness and disease),” Marks said. CRD workcrews broke ground on Malloch Road in Metchosin on April 10, to

install a waterline to the closest watermain on Liberty Drive. Although the facility has been trying to get hooked up to tap water since 2006, the installation was scheduled for completion in three weeks. Malloch Road is getting fire hydrants installed as an added bonus, a feature that could be life saving in the event of a fire. “It’s rare, but it could be a catastrophe if we didn’t have a hydrant near us,” Marks said. Having the water line will also benefit neighbouring homes who now have the option to hook up to the waterline. In 2007, most residents on Malloch Road and a few on Liberty Drive agreed to collectively chip in 20 per cent of the cost and Wild ARC would cover the remainder. Some residents also truck in water to their homes. The waterline will allow Wild ARC to stop trucking in about 20,000 litres water every few days in the summer. The project coincides with the ongoing construction of a five-pool aquatic centre for waterfowl, marine birds and small sea mammals.

Stolen car turns into manhunt Kyle Wells News staff

A man in a stolen car in Langford got a bit more attention from police than he bargained for on Tuesday. An alert off-duty police officer spotted a known criminal suspiciously inspecting cars in the Westshore Town Centre parking lot the afternoon of April 17. The officer called in to the detachment and RCMP officers surrounded the area and waited to see if the suspect would commit a crime. The man didn’t break into any cars, but once

he got into the vehicle he had arrived in, RCMP ran the plates and discovered it had been flagged as stolen. An unmarked police car tried to prevent the suspect from leaving the parking lot, but the man rammed the car and then drove off. Other RCMP members in marked cruisers decided not pursue. “Every pursuit is different but we have to look at the public safety,” said Sgt. Max Fossum. “We’re not going to put people at risk for chasing stolen cars.” An RCMP air services helicopter happened to be in the area

for training, so it helped out in the search for the vehicle. The police dog service was also brought in for the search. A nearby resident to the mall spotted the car and called the RCMP. Officers inspected the vehicle and then tracked the man down to a residential backyard. He was taken in to custody without incident. The suspect will likely face charges for the possession of a stolen car and assault. Anyone with information on any of this incident is asked to call West Shore RCMP at 250474-2264.

Carr-inspired art show at JDF in the fall Continued from Page A1

“So much of this is still relatively preserved,” Limbrick said. “These artists will be looking at the landscapes with modern eyes.” While the artists are painting at some of Carr’s favourite outdoor locations, they are not trying to recreate the icon’s work.

“I’d expect many of us won’t try to emulate or copy her paintings, but we may see some Emily Carr-type trees that we wouldn’t normally have,” Mitchell said. “You’ll have to come to the show to find out.” Painters will also have to face the elements, as Carr once did. “These are conditions that Emily had to endure. There was

always wind. Everyday at three o’clock in Metchosin there is wind,” Limbrick said. “There was also the rain which Emily complains bitterly about in her writing.” For more information on Following in Emily’s Footsteps go to coastcollective.ca and click on special programs. reporter@goldstreamgazette.com

OUR VIEW

Put action into Earth Day C

omedian George Carlin famously said: “There is nothing wrong with the planet. Nothing wrong with the planet. The planet is fine. The people are [doomed].” His theory was that the planet has been around for 4.5 billion years, and humans have been here one or 200,000 years. And we’ve only been engaged in heavy industry for a little over 200 years. “Two hundred years versus four-and-a-half billion,” said Carlin. “And we have the conceit to think that somehow we’re a threat?” Unfortunately, it’s taken our species less than a century to do some damage to this big blue marble. And Earth Day is a good reminder to us all to keep it clean — something Carlin never did with his language. What first started as an environmental awareness event in the U.S. in 1970, Earth Day (April 22) has become more widely celebrated in recent years. This year in Victoria a three-day event, Creatively United for the Planet, hopes to inspire environmental awareness and build community through creativity. But is this enough? Does attending a weekend festival make us want to become better stewards of the planet? Does joining a broom bash or ivy pull lead us to build a compost in our backyard or take transit instead of the car to work? Three local businesses decided to take up a Garbage Challenge to mark Earth Day this year, taking an hour to collect garbage from around Victoria. The one that collects the most wins the Golden Garbage Award. Sure, it’s a small step, but an achievable goal. It should be noted that the Inn at Laurel Point, Harbour Air Seaplanes and Eagle Wing Tours — the founders of this Garbage Challenge — are carbon-neutral businesses and want to encourage other businesses to get involved in the care of the environment. Earth Day gives us the opportunity to remind ourselves that each small step we take toward sustainability will become a giant leap one day. Each time we walk or ride our bike to a local farm stand to buy carrots instead of using the car, makes a difference. Each time we put the carrot peels into the compost instead of the garbage bin makes a difference. Each time we spread that compost on our own garden bed … well, you get the picture. Even if what you choose to do seems like a small step, one day it could become a big deal and you can say you did your part in keeping the planet “fine.” What do you think?

LETTERS Loss of Colwood greenspace disturbing Re: Colwood needs tree retention bylaw, Letters, April 6, 2012. I would like to say that I completely agree with the recent letter from Melanie Davis of Colwood. I was driving up Latoria Road and was disturbed to reach the top of the hill to see a landscape of house roofs, and not a tree in sight. I too was wondering about the greenspace plan for Colwood and am concerned about the loss of habitat for animals and wildlife. Jean Engelbrecht Colwood

Langford on wrong development path Re: Colwood on wrong development path, Letters, April 11, 2012. When I complained to the planning department about the clear cutting around Langford Lake and how the wind was breaking down established shrubs as well as thick 25-foot branches from the fir trees the reply was “Oh you feel the wind down there.” Has no one noticed how close the housing is going up and yet no road allowances been made? I ended up on a drive in one of those developments and basically had to turn into someone’s driveway to turn around. If one has visitors park on the narrow road, there is no room

for through traffic to pass. It will be very difficult for any emergency traffic to get through in these areas. I have stated many times that with the houses being built so close together, if one catches fire many houses near it will also suffer from fire damage. Also, we don’t have the roads to support all this development. Roads need to be widened; we don’t need “beautification” lanes before need. Most middle school students know the damage that clear cutting has on the environment but it doesn’t seem to be important to Langford mayor and council; after all, they destroyed the wetland of Hulls field. How many residents realize all the water that is pushed further into Colwood and how it begins to stink? The Sooke School District wants to move the high school to where Glen lake school is presently located. This school is needed for all the young children that live in the area and in the new housing development that has gone in there. Plenty of room exists at the present Belmont school location where they could start building at the back fence forward and them demolish the present school. I see the future of Langford being like other large areas, have highways being built in the air over housing developments. I doubt that you’d find any residents agreeable to this but hey, Mayor Stew Young and his cohorts overruled the residents

who were 800 to 200 against taking Hulls field out of the Agriculture Land Reserve. What’s to stop them authorizing highways in the sky? Sharon Lansdowne Langford

Support the effort to stop Joseph Kony We need your help to stop child soldiers. There is a man named Joseph Kony who takes kids from their parents at night in Uganda. He gives the kids drugs and makes them go to war and fight. One in 10 child soldiers get to go home and they are scarred forever by what they became and what they did to themselves and their family. Sadly, some of them are even forced to kill their own parents. They need your help to get them all home to their families. We need to stop Kony and others like him.

Capital Tree Service:

The local choice to keep trees and hedges in tip-top shape By Jennifer Blyth As the owner of Greater Victoria’s largest locally owned tree service, Steve Taylor has a vested interest in seeing a job well done. Having grown up here in the Capital Region, he knows the value of its trees to area residents, and notes with a laugh that many of the trees he’s working on through his Capital Tree Service will likely outlive him in the Garden City. Since founding the company in 2004 with just two trucks and a love of working outside year-round, Taylor has built the company to a fleet of trucks, and recently added BBB accreditation to his company resume. From emergency tree service to tree pruning and shaping, Taylor and his arborists at Capital Tree Service have the knowledge and expertise to help home and business owners create the outdoor environment they envision. Coming off a mild winter, spring is a great time to get your trees looking and feeling their best. “One of the things we really like to encourage this time of year is hedge pruning – it encourages the hedges to fill in as they start to grow for the season,” Taylor explains. For larger trees, proactively pruning and shaping

can also help increase the enjoyment homeowners get from their trees and reduce the risk of a tree causing damage. And where trees may need to be thinned or removed, Taylor’s staff can help identify what, if any, permitting is required. Taylor’s emphasis on the local community resonates with customers, who appreciate his attention to training, safety and employee education, and his clientfirst approach to business, he says. That commitment to community is something Taylor learned early. He won the Citizen Award from his time playing junior hockey with the Victoria Salsa, and received the Mayor’s Award in 2005. He also participates in the BC Adopt a Highway initiative and each year undertakes many fundraising activities benefiting the local food bank, Saanich Volunteer Society and Santas Anonymous. Each Christmas since 2007, Capital Tree Service has also conducted tree chipping following the holiday in support of local charities.

Dancers under Svengali’s spell Vivian Moreau News staff

It’s understandable that dancer Amanda Green wasn’t sure where she was going. She was, after all, calling from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet tour bus somewhere along the Atlantic seaboard. “I don’t know where we’re headed. North Carolina? South Carolina? Virginia?” she said, calling on a cellphone. Green, 26, along with the 30 members of the company, was on a three-week tour performing in Moulin Rouge before heading back to Winnipeg to regroup before heading to the West Coast. She did know where she’d be at the end of April – performing as first soloist in Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s production of Svengali in Vancouver and Victoria. It’s a demanding role that has her on stage for all but 15 minutes of the ballet adapted from a George du Maurier’s novel, Green says the role of Trilby, the Parisian street walker turned dancer under the influence of the enigmatic Svengali is one she looks forward to performing – the company has danced it three times previously this season – even when just coming off a road tour. “For most of us we just wait for the music, it’s in our bodies,” she says. Green grew up in Alberta and both she and her sister Victoria Laine trained with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Green also studied at the Harris Conservatory in Florida, danced one season in Columbus, Ohio before returning to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in 2004 as apprentice.

Bruce Monk/Royal Winnipeg Ballet

Harrison James and Amanda Green will perform in the Royal Winnipeg Ballet's production of Svengali. Victoria holds a special attraction for Green. She’s been here previously with the company but also with her family. “I love the Inner Harbour, all the downtown boutiques and the simplicity of Victoria,” she says. Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s Svengali runs April 26 to 28 at the Royal Theatre, 805 Broughton St. Tickets $25 to $75, and can be purchased in person at the box office, online at rmts.bc.ca or by calling 250386-6121. vmoreau@oakbaynews.com

Vincent Gale, left, Bill Dow and Sarah Orenstein star in God of Carnage at the Belfry Theatre.

Mayhem rules the day Brittany Lee News staff

What starts off as a friendly meeting of two couples to resolve a playground fight between their sons, quickly turns into a game of namecalling, finger-pointing and throwing things. And it’s all on stage in the Belfry Theatre’s production of the award-winning comedy God of Carnage, written by Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton.

This satire of social conduct and modern day marriage stars Bill Dow, Vincent Gale, Sarah Orenstein and Celine Stubel, and is directed by Glynis Leyshon, former artistic director at the Belfry Theatre. The play starts as a calm, rational debate among adults, but the facade of decorum is razor thin and when the Scotch starts to flow, lines are drawn, allegiances are made and broken, and the evening quickly devolves into a hysterical night.

The play received a Tony Award for Best Play and an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2009. God of Carnage runs from April 17 to May 20 at the Belfry Theatre, 1291 Gladstone Ave. Tickets range from $23 to $38. There are discounts for high school and postsecondary students. For tickets, call 250-385-6815 or visit tickets.belfry.bc.ca. For more information, visit belfry. bc.ca/god-of-carnage. editor@oakbaynews.com

Self-discovery takes a comic turn in Intrepid Theatre production

Don’t miss our

SEMI-ANNUAL $

Brittany Lee News staff

The story of a girl who goes to clown college on a path of self-discovery but then drops out is presented as the Confessions of a Clown College Dropout at the Intrepid Theatre Club. The story follows a confused, discouraged performer as she attempts to find purpose in her life and her life on stage, according to writer Marina Legace from CatFlap Collective, a group of local artists putting on the show. “I’m calling it a haphazard clown musical tripping out on LSD,” Legsaid. “She goes “I’m calling it ace through a journey redisa haphazard clown covering and exploring what would be the kind musical tripping of exercises one might out on LSD.” do at clown college.” - Marina Legace Legace’s inspiration for the story came from a personal experience as an artist struggling with stage fright and a lack of self-confidence, she said. “I went to clown school to try to rediscover my joy in performing and because of the state that I was in, I had a really difficult time coming to terms with my role as a performer and I ended up dropping out… so it’s kind of a true story,” she said. The production includes live music, improvisation, and stilt-walking. Along with Legace, it features Kimara Brilling and Emma Zabloski, also from CatFlap Collective.

Victoria Cougars season ends in OT Travis Paterson News staff

One lucky bounce ended the Victoria Cougars attempt at a championship hockey season. The Cougars lost in double overtime during the Cyclone Taylor Cup gold medal final on Sunday (April 15). The host Abbotsford Pilots came back to tie the game 2-2 in the third before winning the provincial junior B hockey championship. “It was difficult to have such a great season (end that way),” Cougars coach Mark Van Helvoirt said. “It’s tough to swallow but looking back it’s (also) tough to call this an unsuccessful season.” The Cougars cleaned up the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League, clinching the Andy Hebenton Trophy as regular season champs months before the season ended. In the playoffs, the Cougars lost once in nine games to take the Brent Patterson Memorial Trophy league championship. The Esquimalt-based club was the top ranked junior B team in B.C., and was the favourite to win the Cyclone Cup, which the Peninsula Panthers won last year. Instead, the Pilots will represent B.C. at the Keystone Cup, Western Canadian Championships in Saskatoon, Sask., this coming weekend.

Bannister’s banner year Chris Bannister ended his junior hockey career in fine fashion, leading the tournament

in goals with six. He also scored the Cougars’ first goal in all four Cyclone Cup games. Bannister’s heroics started in the second period of Game 1 of the round robin on Thursday (April 12), which the Cougars won 3-2. He scored all three goals, including the game-winner in the third. In Game 2, the Cougars defeated the Beaver Valley Nitehawks 3-0, on goals by Bannister, Josh Wyatt and Sam Rice. Evan Roch earned the first two wins, including the shutout, stopping all 27 of the Nitehawks’ shots. Having clinched a spot in the final, the Cougars 7-2 loss to the Delta Ice Hawks in Game 3 on Saturday was of little concern. What mattered was the gold medal final. And when it started, Bannister was there, once again scoring the opener in the second period. Riley Lamb tied it for the Pilots but Victoria captain Brody Coulter put the Cougars up 2-1 on a power play goal, assisted by Bannister. The Cougars went on defensive lockdown in the third period, not giving up any scoring chances. So when the Pilots scored on a pinball of a point shot from defenceman Matthew Genovese late in the third, it was a shocker. “We were 70 seconds from winning and (the shot) was one in a million. We played a textbook third period. They didn’t have any scoring opportunities, and (the tying goal) didn’t have enough power to knock over a pop bottle.”

Then it got worse. The Cougars were stuck in defensive mode for overtime and didn’t get enough of a push going to create chances. The end came at four minutes and 17 seconds into the second overtime period. A standard shot from the point, the kind defensive defenceman Garrett Lynum likely made just to try for a rebound or deflection, somehow managed to handcuff Roch and sneak into the net. It set off an epic celebration for the Pilots, and an epic disappointment for the Cougars. Former junior A Victoria Grizzlies defenceman Brett Kolins, captain of the Pilots, was named MVP of the tournament. Had the Cougars won, the trophy would likely have been Bannister’s, who played an opportunistic game and was defensively sound throughout. “He was a force,” Van Helvoirt said.
