Community group grants up and down Oak Bay estimates committee doles out cash to non-profits Vivian Moreau News staff

Do your homework. That’s the message from Oak Bay’s municipal estimates committee to community groups looking for municipal grants. Maritime Museum of B.C.’s request for

$2,500 was turned down because the nonprofit group had not provided sufficient additional detail in its application to the committee that doles out grants each year to community groups. Although $2,500 was approved for the DeMezey Memorial Abbeyfield Legacy Society, the committee agreed the society would be asked to identify a specific project for the funds. The seven-member estimates committee met three days over a three-week period in March and April to approve departmental budgets and to divvy up funds to community groups. Newly formed Friends

of Uplands Park received its requested amount of $1,000. Margaret Lidkea of Friends of Uplands Park hadn’t heard about the approval until contacted by Oak Bay News this week. “It feels really good,” she said about the grant. “I feel honoured that they support and acknowledge the impact of volunteers (who work in the park.”) The Community Association of Oak Bay received only $1,000 of its request for $11,500. Oak Bay Volunteer Services Society received $20,000, down from its requested amount of $26,000. Oak

Bay’s child and youth committee budget was reduced from $500 to $100, while the environment advisory and active transportation committees increased from $1,000 each to $1,200 each. The estimates committee also approved small grants to regional groups such as the Bowker Creek Initiative for a pennant printing workshop ($500), and to the Vancouver Island Film and Media Commission ($3,000) and St. John Ambulance ($600). Oak Bay’s gross 2012 budget is $31,582,000. vmoreau@oakbaynews.com

New reserve constables help K-12 support staff sign to police Oak Bay streets collective agreements

Brittany Lee News staff

Divjit Malhotra has wanted to be a police officer since he was five years old. He wants to “serve and protect” the community, he says. Graduating from the Oak Bay Reserve Constable training program brings Malhotra, 19, one step closer to his goal. Malhotra and fellow Oak Bay reserve constable graduate, Aubrey Blackhall, completed the six-month training program, along with 24 others from Saanich, on March 31. All 26 graduates were sworn in as special municipal constables and given the status of a peace officer in B.C. As a secondyear criminal “Being a visible justice student Camosun minority in Oak Bay, at College, MalhoI hope to bridge any tra said policgaps between people ing has always been a path that have a difficult he wanted to time dealing with the take. The reserve police.” p r o g r a m - Divjit Malhotra taught him about the importance of professionalism, accountability and credibility in the policing field. He also learned the do’s and don’ts of policing. “They really emphasize on building people with the highest level of professionalism,” he says. Malhotra said he is looking forward to helping people in the community of Oak Bay, and most of all, talking to and getting to know them. “Being a visible minority in Oak Bay, I hope to bridge any gaps between people that have a difficult time dealing with the police,” he says. The Oak Bay department’s focus on community policing is what attracted Malhotra, a Langford resident, to the program. “It is a small department, so it gives

Mike Duquette of the Saanich Police Department. you a chance to do all the work that community policing has,” he says. Reserve constables work on a volunteer basis and focus on crime prevention and community policing efforts. This includes tasks such as supporting patrol and traffic officers on ride-alongs and assisting with public events. The reserve constable program consists of more than 200 training hours in subjects such as legal training, arrest and control tactics and patrol tactics, among others. “(The) training has given me all the confidence that I need to be out there and perform my duties,” Malhotra says.

Intake for the program depends on the need for reserve constables and the amount of interest shown by applicants, according to Oak Bay Chief Constable, Mark Fisher. Interested applicants can apply in person or over the phone at any time, Fisher says. Files are kept on hand and applicants are contacted when a program commences. Programs generally start in the fall but may not run every year. For more information about the program, visit oakbaypolice.org/reserves. html. editor@oakbaynews.com

Educational support staff in Greater Victoria and Saanich are among unionized workers who have signed two-year collective agreements under the net-zero mandate. The latest negotiated agreements were reached between the British Columbia Public School Employers’ Association, bargaining agent for the province’s 60 boards of education, and union bargaining teams representing about 8,300 kindergarten to Grade 12 support workers across 10 school districts. The two-year collective agreements were ratified at the local level in December 2011 and are just now being announced as nearly all remaining contracts for support staff across the province are approved by the employers’ association board. A total of 52 agreements covering about 26,600 employees have been made. Agreements expiring in 2012 will be negotiated under the cooperative gains mandate, which gives public sector employees the ability to apply operational savings to wage increases, as long as services are maintained and costs are held to existing budgets. According to the province, an increase of one per cent in total compensation for all 300,000 unionized workers employed in the public service, at Crown corporations and agencies, schools, health and community social services sectors, would cost taxpayers approximately $196 million annually. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Larger ships coming next season

POLICE NEWS IN BRIEF

Harbour authority also welcomes new tenant With Crystal Serenity docked as the first cruise ship of the season in Victoria, the federal and provincial governments used the opportunity to highlight the success of their 2010 investment in Ogden Point. An expansion to the pier, including a new mooring dolphin and dredging of Pier B, was completed by early 2011 for nearly $4 million. The cost was split between the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority and the provincial and federal governments. “I’m delighted our investments are paying off here in Victoria,” federal Minister of Canadian Heritage, James Moore, said Tuesday morning. “The expanded pier is increasing tourism and providing a significant boost to British Columbia’s economy.” Making use of the expanded pier, the 315-metre Celebrity Solstice is confirmed to call on Victoria next year. The ship is 20 metres longer than the longest

Greater Victoria residents are invited to get a closer view of space as the University of Victoria hosts its annual Astronomy Day celebration featuring Bob McDonald, host of CBC Radio’s Quirks & Quarks, April 28. The event features family-friendly activities throughout the day, including telescope making, solar viewing, astrophotography workshops, hourly lectures, and an outdoor planetary walk. In the evening (weather permitting), guests can stargaze through a large, 32-inch telescope on the roof of the Bob Wright Centre. McDonald will share his views on how space has evolved during his lifetime, in a presentation titled Vacations in Space: The Hottest Holiday Spots in the Solar System. “As a journalist, I’ve had the privilege of witness-

ing the exploration of our solar system by robot,” he said. “I wanted to give a little travelogue of how I’ve felt like a passenger on Columbus’ ship as we’ve explored new worlds.” McDonald will have pictures of discoveries, such as Mars’ pink sky, Jupiter’s ring, and volcanoes and oceans located on moons, to share. He encourages folks to come out and celebrate because there is a lot to learn about our universe. “There’s so much we don’t know about our universe … 95 per cent of the universe is something totally mysterious to us,” McDonald said. We need to realize how small and precious Earth is, and we need to take care of our planet because it’s the only planet humans can live on, he added. Astronomy Day runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with evening activities from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., at UVic’s Bob Wright Centre, located east of the Elliott Building and south of parking lot B. McDonald’s speech starts at 7:30 p.m. in room A104 of the Centre. All-day parking is available for $2.25 but admission to the event is free.

OUR VIEW

Grandstanding at its finest Ontario-based Conservative MP Kellie Leitch was in Victoria recently to announce federal funding for projects that enhanced accessibility. The down-to-earth MP, parliamentary secretary to Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development Dianne Finley, did her best to make the announcement sound relevant to her location. The Blanshard Community Centre, site of the April 12 press conference, was given $50,000 in a previous round of funding to upgrade its playground. That work was completed last year, much to the delight of centre users and their children. Asked to confirm any Greater Victoria projects among the 187 that will receive the new funding, representatives did not supply any. A similarly curious situation happened at Ogden Point last week, when Conservative cabinet minister and Lower Mainland MP James Moore, along with B.C. Liberal cabinet minister Blair Lekstrom, were on hand to greet the first cruise ship of the 2012 season. Neither was announcing anything new, only to remind the public that the feds and province chipped in to help the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority build a new mooring dolphin that extended the length of a pier at Ogden Point. Installation of the dolphin, which enables even larger cruise ships to tie up at Ogden Point, was completed almost two years ago. Funding for the project? That was announced back in 2010. We shouldn’t be surprised at these types of appearances by government politicians, as they happen all the time. What’s frustrating as journalists is having to cut through the smokescreen to determine whether the “media event” is related to anything currently happening or simply a rehashing of old news. To us, it’s a sign that governments feel they need a boost in public opinion. But the public is starting to see these highly orchestrated events for what they are and will eventually stop paying much attention, choosing instead to follow more pressing issues. After all, there’s a reason why it’s called “news,” not “olds.” What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@oakbaynews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

And if recent B.C. history is any guide, this fundamental conflict of interest will receive little or no media attention in the months to come. Instead, the conventional wisdom will be that voters want “change.” • Correction: Last week’s column referred to the 1971 Greenpeace campaign against atmospheric nuclear testing. That protest boat was directed at a U.S. nuclear test off Alaska, not a Soviet test as stated. Subsequent Greenpeace protests targeted the Soviet slaughter of grey whales, and the last atmospheric nuclear tests, conducted by France in the South Pacific.

The National Head Injury League After watching Marian Hossa get taken off the ice on a stretcher, I said a prayer for him and then turned the TV off. I come from a hockey family: an uncle who won an Olympic hockey gold medal and another who played in the World Championships. I have played most of my life. I watch all the Canucks games. I’ve been a die-hard Bruin’s fan since Bobby Orr. Although I have other interests, I am a hockey guy and as difficult as it’s going to be, I’m not watching any more of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Watching the Penguins and the Flyers the other night, I was almost sick to my stomach. Bloodsport. It doesn’t seem like we’ve evolved much from the Roman gladiator days in the Coliseum. In my opinion, the NHL is sick. Sidney Crosby, Daniel Sedin, Claude Giroux, Jonathan Toews, Kris Letang, Brayden Schenn, Milan Michalek, Jeff Skinner, Marc Staal, Andy McDonald and Nathan Horton – some of the best young players on the planet have all missed far too many games this past year due to brain injuries. My guess is that all of them are one brain-jarring incident away from hanging their skates up or worse. I have heard many people say, “If something isn’t done soon, someone is going to get killed on

the ice.” My reply: Marc Savard and Chris Pronger didn’t die from the injuries they sustained but from what I can gather, their lives are over, at least the lives they had before their injury. And they are just two we know about. The hockey culture at the top has to change. Get rid of Cherry, Milbury, McSorley, May and Kypreos. Who and what gives these goons the right to spew their hockey bullyism on national TV? The fact is none of these guys would have played in the NHL or got the platform they enjoy today if it wasn’t for the violence they brought with them. For whatever reason, the NHL is trying to appeal to the same demographic as mixed martial arts. So people stand and cheer the gratuitous violence. Get rid of it and perhaps the caveman fans leave, but there are many more who have been turned off who will return and many more who will thrill to the speed and highlight reel plays, goals and saves. Stay the course and all the superstars will be on the shelf and the NHL will be showcasing nothing but “enforcers” (hockey’s euphemism for professional thugs). See how long the ratings last then. The point is you can watch whole teams comprised solely of these types of guys in any beer league in any small town

rink in North America. But the show, that’s for the Howes, Orrs, Gretskys, Lemieuxs and Crosbys. How many thugs were on our Olympic gold medal winning team in Vancouver? None. We wouldn’t have won if there were. There are those who are going to call me a wuss and recite their usual mantras: Hockey is a man’s game! You gotta be tough to play it! That’s playoff hockey! They gotta let off steam … blah, blah. Although Sidney Crosby talks a big game, don’t you think he lays awake at night wondering whether the next hit is going to be the one that ends it? How do you think his mom feels about him still playing? How would it be if Kobe Bryant dribbled the ball through the lane on his way to a lay up and LeBron James elbowed him in the side of the head, then the two of them duked it out while the referees and the rest of the players backed off until they tired out? Or how would it be if Roger Federer crossed-checked Rafa Nadal across the face with his racquet while changing courts at Wimbledon and then had to sit out two minutes before they resumed play? Dave Secco Oak Bay

Democracy is messy business May I add my support for those looking for independent thinkers on Oak Bay council. To think that politicians with similar world views might actually work together rather than sitting as independents? It’s outrageous. And that they might receive support, financial or otherwise, from similarly free-thinking individuals and organizations? How corrupt is that? An independent thinker would never grovel for such support. And then, to think that after they have been democratically elected, these same politicians might bring in legislation and programs to advance their world view? Next thing you know these politicians will form a party, and then they’ll probably vote themselves a pension. How independent is that? Not very, let me tell you. If only all the independent thinkers in Oak Bay thought like me then the little district by the sea would be governed perfectly and, more importantly, governed efficiently. Democracy is messy, noisy, inefficient and ill-suited to the independent thinker. R.A. Paterson Oak Bay

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Do you suffer from Allergic Eyes Do you abhor the idea of Victoria’s annual flower count? Many Canadians are looking forward to the end of winter, but others may dread the spring for one red, itchy, watery reason: ocular allergies! Spring is often the beginning of the eye allergy cycle, when nature turns up the volume and tree pollen hangs heavily in the air. Some people suffer from eye allergies year-round, caused by a host of other culprits, including grass pollen, ragweed, and a variety of food, pet and chemical irritants. Allergic reactions are triggered by the body’s immune system in its best effort to protect your eyes from injury. Your immune system can’t tell the difference between harmless substances (like pollens) and harmful intruders (like bacteria), so it overreacts by producing allergy symptoms. These annoying symptoms, including swelling, hives, itching, watering, burning and light sensitivity, can even result in tissue damage or impaired vision. What’s a poor sufferer to do? Try to pinpoint the causes of your allergies and avoid them as much as possible. You can further reduce airborne irritants by using an air conditioner, keeping your environment free of dust, and regulating humidity to keep mites and mold to a minimum. Decongestants, antihistamines and other medicines may also be helpful. Be sure to discuss any eye-related symptoms with your optometrist at your next visit – he or she is one of your best sources of eye health information.

AND IMPLEMENT COMMON RATES On April 11, 2012, the FortisBC Energy Utilities applied to the British Columbia Utilities Commission to amalgamate their natural gas utilities across the province and to implement common rates and services across their service areas starting January 1, 2014. Currently, FortisBC Energy Utilities is made up of three separate natural gas companies, operating in six service areas. The companies have their own services, service agreements (tariffs) and rates. If approved, the application would combine the three companies into one, under a single tariff, with common rates for the various regions. This Application has different implications for customers in each service area. If approved, customers in the Vancouver Island and Whistler service areas will see rate decreases, while customers in the Lower Mainland, Columbia, Inland, and Fort Nelson service areas will see an overall rate increase. PUBLIC REVIEW PROCESS The Commission is initiating a review of FortisBC Energy Utilities’ Application. To view the timetable for this hearing and the Application go to www.bcuc.com select “Current Applications” under “Quick Links” and scroll to “FEU Common Rates, Amalgamation and Rate Design.” HOW TO GET INVOLVED If you wish to participate actively in the review process, you may register as an Intervener or an Interested Party with the Commission Secretary in writing, using the contact information at the end of this notice.

“How was I to know later on I’d have a (dance) school called Shan-e-Punjab?” she asked. While her school’s name sounds like the nonsense syllables from her childhood dance group, the meaning is quite different. Shan-e-Punjab means “to bring honour to the Punjabi culture,” she said. These days, dance students are busy preparing for the annual Youth Showcase, in honour of the Sikh harvest festival. The school, started in 1996, teaches traditional dances from the Sikh region of Northern India, but also what’s popular today. “If the popular thing right now is Bhangra, then that’s what we’ll mainly focus on,” Grewal said. That includes mixes with Top 40. “One year we had Michael Jackson,” she said. “That piece was contributed to us by a girl who has been with us for over 16 years … and she’s a third- or fourth-generation Indo-Canadian. … You’ve got perspectives from everyone.” Today, Grewal has lost her family connection to her homeland. “There’s no elder aunts, anybody there.” But keeping her culture alive through her dance school keeps her going. “Everybody needs that feeling of engagement. Who am I, where do I come from?” she said. “For me, I think I’m a stronger person because of it. … For me, it’s like my oxygen.” rholmen@vicnews.com

The program matches referred children at designated schools with screened and trained mentors for activities that support positive relationships, resiliency, social development and success in school. “In 2012 we are celebrating 15 years of service to children through this program,” said Rhonda Brown, executive director for Big Brothers Big Sisters. “We know our volunteers visiting local schools each week are truly making a difference.” The partnership also allows Big Brothers Big Sisters to dedicate resources to screen and train volunteers, deliver child safety training, liaise with schools, match at-risk children with mentors and provide ongoing monitoring.

Canadians are living longer and costs for the Old Age Security (OAS) are rising. On April 1, 2023 the Government of Canada plans to start raising the age of eligibility for OAS and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) from 65 to 67.*

What does this mean for you? 54 or older as of March 31, 2012

You may still obtain OAS/GIS at age 65

53 or younger as of March 31, 2012

The age of eligibility for OAS/GIS will change gradually between 2023 and 2029

Starting in July 2013, Canadians who are eligible for, but not yet receiving OAS will have the flexibility to delay receiving it in exchange for a higher monthly amount at a later date.

The number of working-age Canadians for every senior is decreasing** 6

The number of working-age Canadians per senior is decreasing, placing additional pressure on the OAS program.

SPORTS All-Island rugby final? Travis Paterson 250-480-3279 sports@vicnews.com

A shot at James Bay in the final makes CW’s Kenny Goodland smile

2010-11 rebuild, one that led to a B.C. championship. Scrum-half Matthew Weingart returned to captain that squad and, this season, national front-rower Andrew Tiedemann has taken up the role, with Goodland and Weingart chipping in. “Really, it’s always been (Tiedemann) this year,” Goodland said, “based on his level of commitment to the club going forward.” On the field, the “process” led by coach Ian Hyde-Lay is coming to fruition in time for the playoff run, Goodland said. National team second-rower Nanyak Dala and fly-half Ander Monro returned against the Caps. Monro’s kicking is a massive advantage for CW, evidenced when Monro relieved CW from heavy pressure by the Caps on Saturday. The emergence of Dylan Jones has added depth in the back row, easing the load for the injured Goodland, who has come off the bench in the past two games. “I’ll do whatever it takes to win another championship.”

Travis Paterson News staff

All due respect to the mainland teams, but at 36 years old, nothing gets the rugby going in Kenny Goodland like the thought of Castaway Wanderers and James Bay in the Rounsefell Cup premier league final. The heart-and-soul forward came off the bench on Saturday (April 21) to help his second-place Castaway Wanderers edge third-place Capilano 28-24 at Windsor Park in Oak Bay. The win earns CW a spot in the May 5 semifinals of the Canadian Direct Insurance premier rugby league playoffs. James Bay also won on Saturday, 24-21 over Meraloma. It clinches first place for James Bay despite one game still outstanding. The win also secures home advantage for Bays’ semifinal. James Bay will most likely face fourth-place Burnaby Lake (there’s an outside chance Burnaby will leapfrog Capilano for third). CW can lock up a home date against Capilano by winning on the road against Burnaby Lake this Saturday (April 28). With the two storied rivals sitting tops in the league, and in separate semifinals, there is a strong chance they could reignite the “100 years war” with the Rounsefell Cup on the line. “I’d like nothing more,” Goodland said. ItwouldalsomeanhavingtheIsland final here for the first time in two years, when the UVic Vikes won it at Wallace Field in 2010.

’Lomas eliminated

UBC Old Boys fly half Ben Thomson tackles Castaway Wanderers forward Kenny Goodland at Windsor Park in February. “Facing James Bay in the final would be pretty ideal,” Goodland said. “If we could win that, I would seriously think about scaling back my rugby career.” Though the Bays defeated CW at Windsor Park last month, Goodland insists the loss wasn’t damaging. “If you lose in the playoffs, that’s crushing. But one of our strengths is

analyzing and moving forward. The season’s all about the process, and there was no reason to come flying out of the gates. “You get in the playoffs and anything can happen.” After captaining CW to several middle-of-the-pack finishes in recent years, the wily No. 8 became part of a shared leadership group with the

James Bay (12-1) did itself and the remaining playoff teams a favour by defeating Kitsilano’s Meraloma rugby club (6-6-1) 24-21 on Saturday. The win clinched first place atop the CDI Premier League standings and a semifinal home berth on May 5, while eliminating Meraloma from the playoffs. “The ’Lomas are scary,” Goodland said. “They were getting better as the season went on.” James Bay fly-half Connor Braid (Oak Bay High) converted the gamedeciding penalty kick to break the 21-21 tie, his fourth penalty conversion of the day. sports@vicnews.com

Victoria wrestlers bronzed at nationals Saanich’s Nolan Mitchell cracks top three in Canada Travis Paterson News staff

Two wrestlers from the South Island competed in the National Wrestling Championships in Fredericton, N.B., last week, each picking up a bronze medal. For Brett Matthews, a Grade 12 student at Stelly’s secondary, and Nolan Mitchell, a Grade 9 student at Claremont secondary, the bronze medals put a solid finish on a good season. Matthews’ medal, though, was a bit of a surprise. Matthews lost all three matches in the freestyle competition, his regular discipline, and slipped to seventh out of 15 in the 80-kilogram class. Not wanting to leave with nothing, Matthews entered

the nationals’ Greco wrestling (no touching below the waist) tournament. It was Matthews’ first Greco competition and he was “winging it,” so to speak. He lost his first match to the eventual gold medal winner, but won his next two, earning a spot on the podium. “I had time to relax and I didn’t expect to do that well. I was just trying a different style of wrestling and seeing if I could do it. There was a lot of throws and I seemed to be good at it.” Unfortunately, nervousness got to him in the freestyle event, which was what he’d been training for all year, Matthews said. “If I’d have stuck to the game plan and had more patience I would have done better. I rushed my moves and didn’t set them up properly.” It ended a six-year youth wrestling career for Matthews, who was the Island champion and finished fourth in B.C. this year. Matthews got into the sport winning the dis-

trict championship in all three years as a Bayside middle school student. “I’ll miss it, but hopefully in a couple years I can come back and help out as a coach with the Victoria Bulldogs or Stelly’s.” For Mitchell, earning bronze in the 42-kgs class was a great result in his first appearance at nationals, but it wasn’t without a shade of disappointment. Mitchell lost his first match to Philip Le, who went on to win gold. Mitchell won his next two matches, but bronze didn’t satisfy. He felt he should have had at least silver, which went to Torrey Toribio (North Vancouver), who Mitchell defeated at provincials in February. Neither Matthews nor Mitchell were part of a school wrestling team. Rather, Matthews traveled to Saanich to train with the Victoria Bulldogs, while Mitchell commuted to Cowichan twice a week. sports@vicnews.com

SPORTS NEWS IN BRIEF

Porter into Hall of Fame Rower Derek Porter is one of seven elite athletes elected to Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame for 2012. This year’s induction ceremonies are Oct. 18 in Calgary. The two-time Olympic medallist in rowing will be enshrined along with figure skating pair Jamie Salé and David Pelletier, soccer player Charmaine Hooper, bobsledder Pierre Lueders, speed-skating sensation Jeremy Wotherspoon and NHL player Scott Niedermayer. Porter studied kinesiology at the University of Victoria and joined the Vikes rowing team in 1986, following in the footsteps of his father, a bronze medal winning rower for the United Kingdom in the 1958 Commonwealth Games. In 1992 Porter won gold with Canada’s men’s eight at the Barcelona Olympics. His status as an elite rower was cemented in 1993, when Porter won gold at the 1993 World Championships and silver in the singles at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. He currently practises as a chiropractor in Vancouver.

Back alleys don’t recycle unwanted electronics Environmental

Consumers and businesses in British Columbia have an environmentally sound recycling option.You can drop off a range of acceptable products at designated Collection Sites throughout the province without charge (see “Acceptable Products” list for details). The Electronics Products Recycling Association (EPRA) is a national, not-for-profit extended producer responsibility program. EPRA has contracted Encorp Pacific (Canada) to deliver the stewardship program under the Return-It™ Electronics brand in BC. The program works to recover and recycle all regulated electronics in a responsible, cost effective manner. The Return-It system also ensures BC’s unwanted electronics are collected and recycled in an environmentally and socially responsible manner by using the Recycler Qualification Program (RQP). Since 2007, the EPRA program, previously run by ESABC, has diverted over 70.6 million kilograms of electronics out of BC landfills and illegal export, while recovering precious metals and other materials for use in future products. How Electronics are Recycled: Electronics collected in BC are sent to approved recyclers in North America. The items are broken down using various manual and mechanical processes. The remaining products are separated into their individual components for recovery. Through a variety of refining and smelting processes, the

materials re-claimed from unwanted electronics are used as raw materials in the manufacturing of new products. It’s the Responsible Thing to Do: Those useless electronics in your basement contain valuable resources. Steel, leaded glass, copper, aluminum, plastic and precious metals can be extracted and recycled into new products. Province Wide Network: More than 125 permanent

Return-It Electronics™ Collection Sites cover over 97.4% of the province. Drop-off events are organized and held in convenient locations in the communities where Collection Sites have not yet been established. How to Find a Collection Site: There are over 125 convenient locations in BC. Find a Collection Site or drop-off event near you at return-it.ca/ electronics/locations
