Looking to tell museum’s stories

Divers’ bravery saluted

Royal B.C. Museum CEO brings a wealth of experience to his new job

Just doing our job: medal recipients

Roszan Holmen News staff

Jack Lohman was first struck with the First Peoples Gallery when he travelled to Victoria in the 1990s for a research project in South Africa. “I came here looking at the way in which museums tell the story of indigenous people,â€? says Lohman, who replaced Pauline Rafferty as CEO of the Royal B.C. Museum in March. Back in 1999, Lohman was appointed CEO of a collective representing 15 national museums and based in Cape Town. “When I arrived, black people’s history was in the natural history museum and white people’s history was in the cultural history museum,â€? he recalls. Similarly, white artifacts were displayed on pedestals while African art was displayed in cases on the floor. “The first thing I did was put a “All these objects shutter down (on the displays) ‌ It was have come from the last bastion of Apartheid,â€? he says.

His resumĂŠ got to think about what includes director of the Museum of London, chair of the National Museum is it we want people to in Warsaw, Poland, and advisor to know about ‌â€? the Museum of Slavery in Qatar and the Institute for National Museums of – Jack Lohman Rwanda. Speaking about his decision to come to Victoria, Lohman dismisses the suggestion that he’s accepted a position in a small and sleepy city compared to his previous engagements. “There is a challenge here,â€? he says. “Museums say they tell stories, but I really am interested to see. Give me an example of where they tell stories. I want to prove that you can.â€? While he compliments the museum’s exhibitry, he’s clear it falls short on its ability to communicate to its audience. With fresh eyes, he strolls through the displays, doling out both praise and criticism. “All these objects have come from somewhere. They’ve all got stories and you’ve got to think about what is it we want people to know about ‌ what do we want them thinking about?â€? PLEASE SEE: New museum boss, Page A10

New Royal B.C. Museum CEO Jack Lohman stands in the ethnography department with some items from the museum’s First Nations’ collection. The facility needs to do a better job of telling the story of indigenous people, he says.

Leading Seaman Patrick Moulden digs in the dirt of a wellworn footpath to unearth a homemade bomb that he must diffuse with only his bare hands. There is no time to call in his bomb disposal team or even don his protective suit. Moulden, a navy clearance diver from CFB Esquimalt’s Fleet Diving Unit, must work quickly so that a U.S. Black Hawk helicopter can safely land and transport wounded soldier Pte. Brock Blaszczyk to the Kandahar Airfield camp in Afghanistan. Minutes before, Blaszczyk stepped on an improvised explosive device on the same footpath. One of his legs just above the knee was vaporized, the other is in tatters. “What that meant for me as an IED operator, if I don’t act immediately, threat to human life is imminent, and so risk to the operator’s life is acceptable in that case,� Moulden said, recalling the most dangerous moment of his eight-month tour to the war-torn nation in 2009-10. “It’s called hand dismantle – I take the thing apart by hand and take whatever risk was necessary because he was going to die if I didn’t,� the Victoria resident said.

A suspected Stanley Cup rioter, who police say cut and coloured his hair to avoid recognition, was arrested on his boat in Esquimalt’s West Bay Marina on Thursday. Victoria patrol and canine unit officers, acting on a tip received by the Integrated Riot Investigation Team of Lower Mainland police, took the 26-year-old Esquimalt resident into custody without incident around 5 a.m. The man’s image was one of 100 photos of wanted riot suspects featured on thousands of Riot Roundup 2 posters distributed by Victoria police reserve constables and volunteers in March. “(His identification) was a result of the posters that we handed out,” said Const. Mike Russell, Victoria police spokesperson. Police say the suspect’s image was taken from video and photos of him allegedly damaging two police cars, a number of parked cars, as well as jumping on some metal fencing panels following Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals on June 15, 2011. “There’s a shot of him dancing on top of a police car,” Russell said. The man is the first suspected rioter arrested by VicPD since the launch of the second riot poster campaign, and the department’s fifth arrest since the riot. Detectives with the Integrated Riot Investigation Team travelled to Victoria to interview the suspect. He was released, but police say he could face criminal charges. “It’s huge for us to be able to help out, to send that message: No matter where you are, if you commit a crime like this, you’re not going to be able to hide in our community,” Russell said. Investigators are recommending 40 criminal charges against 11 suspected rioters from Vancouver Island. To date, 85 people have been charged in connection with the Vancouver riot. For suspect photos visit riot2011.vpd.ca. To report the whereabouts of a suspected rioter, call the Vancouver Police Department at 604-717-9999 or email riot@vpd.ca. emccracken@vicnews.com

Vanished community remembered on internment anniversary Roszan Holmen

internment camps on suspicion of espionage by the Canadian government. The book covers the Japanese Tea Garden on the Gorge, the donation of cherry trees, the Methodist church and other contributions. “Although it was a small community, they were integrated into the (greater) community,” AnnLee said. After the Japanese military bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941, many Victorians expressed sympathy for their Japanese neighbours, she added. Through the research project, the Switzers got in touch with many of the survivors who left Victoria for good as teenagers. “Mostly they had happy memories of Victoria … and they didn’t, most of them, carry much bitterness,” Ann-Lee said. “Many of them still keep in touch with their friends in Victoria. It’s amazing.” rholmen@vicnews.com

On April 22, 70 years ago, a ship called the Princess Jones took Victorians of Japanese descent away from their homes for good. To mark the occasion on Sunday, historians Ann-Lee Switzer and her husband, Gordon, launched their new book about this vanished community at Victoria City Hall. The Switzers discovered the need for the book while researching the Japanese cemetery in Victoria. “We thought that we could just look up the history of the VictoriaJapanese community and put it in our book about the cemetery,” Ann-Lee said. “But there was nothing … so we got to work.” Gateway to Promise: Canada’s first Japanese Community, covers the history of the Japanese community in Victoria until April 22, 1942, when they were exiled to

Did you know? ■ On Feb. 27, 1942, Victoria city council voted to endorse a resolution passed by the City of Kelowna stating, in part: “… that all male Japanese of military age should be interned; that any evacuation of other Japanese to east of the Cascade Mountains should be under strict supervision of the Dominion Authorities … and should be effected in a manner that would not arouse popular indignation and outrage.” ■ This month Coun. Charlayne Thornton-Joe told council she would be introducing a motion to rescind council’s original motion from 1942.

Community minded models sought for upcoming fashion fundraiser Nominees should have made contribution to women’s lives Organizers of the fourth annual Fashion with Passion are looking for two individuals to strut their stuff down the runway in support of the charity fundraiser.

Teachers withdraw from extra curriculars Report cards due by week’s end, labour board states Natalie North News staff

Sports tournaments and graduation ceremonies could be the latest casualties in the ongoing labour dispute between public school teachers and the province. Teachers voted overwhelmingly in favour of further resisting the B.C. Liberals’ back-to-work-legislation in a plan that includes pulling out of extracurricular activities such as coaching and graduation ceremony planning. It’s a clear

message that has left more uncertainty among parents and educators alike. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation announced Friday (April 20) that 73 per cent of teachers who participated in a provincewide vote support stepping up their protests against Bill 22, the Education Improvement Act. A total of 21,625 teachers voted in favour of the federation’s action plan, while 7,846 voted against further action. Meanwhile on the same day, the B.C. Labour Relations Board ordered teachers to immediately prepare report cards for work completed from the beginning of the year until March 17 in addition to June report cards. The reports are due this Friday.

For School Bike League commissioner Eric Simonson of Oak Bay High, the vote comes at a bad time for athletics. “Many coaches (like me) think it is unfair to withdraw from extracurricular (activities),” he said. “I know other coaches will keep coaching despite the vote.” In the Saanich School District, which covers the Peninsula and the northern tip of Saanich, teachers began withdrawing from extracurricular activities prior to the BCTF vote. Though the Saanich Teachers’ Association voted in March in favour of withdrawing from extracurricular activities, some individual teachers continued to participate, confirmed association president Sean Hayes.

How participation may change once the directive comes from the provincial federation is unknown, Hayes said. The plan also launches a public awareness campaign and opens the possibility of a second union vote on a full walkout. In a BCTF release, union president Susan Lambert called the decision to withdraw from extracurricular activities wrenching. “Teachers struggle with this because these activities bring so much joy to our engagement with students,” Lambert said. “We know this will mean the loss of some highly-valued activities, and we sincerely regret that. But we have to look at the bigger picture and the longer-term.”

The Education Improvement Act was passed March 15 following months of work-to-rule job action by the province’s 41,000 teachers and a provincewide walkout March 5. The legislation includes fines of $1.3 million a day for the union and $475 a day for individual teachers who continue to strike. While talks between teachers and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association centred around class size and composition, as well as teacher prep time, the two sides were ultimately polarized over the government’s unwillingness to diverge from a two-year freeze on wage increases. – with files from Travis Paterson nnorth@saanichnews.com

Victoria police shut down drug suites in Esquimalt Erin McCracken News staff

The drug trade in Esquimalt was dealt a serious blow, with the arrest of six suspected drug dealers last Wednesday. Just after 10 a.m., Victoria police raided two apartment suites at a building in the 600-block of Admirals Rd., where it’s suspected that methamphetamine drugs were being sold, said lead investigator

Const. Harvey Stevenson, with the department’s Street Crime Unit. Officers with VicPD’s Emergency Response Team and Street Crime and Strike Force units discovered thousands of dollars worth of crystal meth, some prescription drugs and GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate). A date-rape drug, GHB is also used by people who abuse crystal meth, cocaine and other stimulant drugs, police say. “We believe that they traffic in

both (crystal meth and GHB),” Stevenson said. Between $5,000 and $10,000 in suspected stolen electronics, including computers, musical equipment and cellphones were also retrieved from the units. Officers were not surprised to find the property, since it’s not unusual for drug abusers to also be dealers, Stevenson said. “And a big reason for that is their habits are very

The suspects, who are all known to police, face charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, but other charges may be considered, including break-andentering, theft and possession of property obtained by crime. emccracken@vicnews.com

IN BRIEF

Public reassured after stabbing Police say the public is not at risk after a 25-year-old Victoria man allegedly stabbed a 35-year-old man Victoria man Sunday. The victim went into the Ocean Island Inn Inn at 791 Pandora Ave. bleeding profusely from a stab wound to his abdomen, just before 4 p.m. Police say the stabbing happened in the 800-block of Pandora Ave., not far from the hostel. Before paramedics whisked the man to hospital, he told police his attacker was walking away along Blanshard Street. Police arrested a suspect minutes later. Const. Mike Russell said it appears the men know each other. The victim required emergency surgery, and is expected to fully recover. Investigators are recommending the suspect be charged with one count of aggravated assault. He was scheduled to appear in court on Monday. emccracken@ vicnews.com

Esquimalt council elects to pad reserves Property tax hike may cover police transition costs Erin McCracken News staff

Esquimalt taxpayers will bear one of the lowest municipal property tax increases in the Capital Region this year. In a 5-2 vote last week, council agreed on a 2.49-per-cent increase, believed to be the lowest the township has seen since 1997. “We heard (Langford has) claimed the lowest tax (increase) in the region, but I think we’ll have to dethrone them,” quipped Laurie Hurst, Esquimalt’s chief administrative officer. Langford is proposing a 2.9-per-cent increase for 2012-13. After considering eight possible scenarios, ranging from 1.75 to 2.49 per cent, council opted for the package that will restore the municipality’s contingency and capital projects reserve funds to previous levels. It will also permit the township to bank $59,000, which council informally agreed should be set aside in the event transition costs arise from switching police service providers. The township is currently awaiting

a decision from the province on a request to switch from the Victoria Police Department to the RCMP. Under the approved tax rate, homeowners will pay an average increase of $56 in 2012, while businesses will see a $239 hike. Coun. David Schinbein, along with councillors Dave Hodgins, Tim Morrison, Bob McKie and Lynda Hundleby, voted in favour of the 2.49-percent increase. “We know we’ve got infrastructure issues coming down the road,” Schinbein said. “And the only way to (deal with) that is to maintain our capital reserves and our other reserve funds.” Mayor Barb Desjardins favoured a 2.23-per-cent increase that did not include the $59,000 for potential police transition costs. Instead, those could be paid with contingency dollars, she said. Coun. Meagan Brame also championed the lower rate, though to “honour” a recent decision to cut 20 per cent of the $93,000 doled out in community grants each year. Though McKie recognized the blow dealt to the grant fund, he sided with the option that would put extra money in the bank. PLEASE SEE: Esquimalt budget, Page A7

Connecting Esquimalt one sidewalk at a time Esquimalt is continuing with its plan to create a more walkable community. A new sidewalk approved for the north side of Wordsley Street, a short dead-end road off Lampson Street, will be the third such walkway built under the township’s sidewalk construction program.

The Wordsley project will be undertaken in June or July and cost about $22,000. One new sidewalk is considered each year under the program, at a cost of $20,000 to $40,000. The time frame for the program is 2010 to 2018. “The purpose of this proContinued from Page A6

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.

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@vicnews.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.

Lack of reasonable debate on environment tiresome Re: Environmentalism for dummies (B.C. Views, April 18) So, Mr. Fletcher, what are you saying to me? It seems that you are telling me that the environmental movement is a sham. Do you think that it is a front for a dangerous group that is trying to “greenwash” our brains? I am not a dummy (or maybe I am – I’m writing to you as if you could possibly hear me). I am tired of the bickering. It’s your planet also. Maybe you even have children, or grandchildren. And yes, “they” have convinced me that the planet and the human race are at risk.

So even if it’s a long shot, I’d like to see some attention to that detail. I think it matters that we don’t seem to have learned the lessons of the oil spills. Do you think that they did nothing? Do you think that the oil companies have our best interests at heart? Do you think that the status quo is the only way to go to be able to achieve financial stability? I am not particularly concerned that you voice these opinions. I agree with you that there is a public relations war being waged. It makes a difference to me what you think, since a great many people seem to agree with you. My point is simply that I

am tired and saddened by the seeming impossibility of reasonable debate, leading to reasonable action that would benefit us all. Ellie Friedenberg Victoria

RCMP budget worrisome for Esquimalt residents Many residents are very unhappy with the Esquimalt Policing and Law Enforcement Advisory Panel’s decision to invite the RCMP to police the township. Yes, there are some problems with the Victoria Police Department, but it is not the policing on our streets. The police are friendly, helpful and readily available. The problem is the governance of the policing between the City of Victoria and Esquimalt. Surely this can be resolved and we can reach a satisfactory agreement. Also, Esquimalt’s budget is impacted by that of VicPD, which would be different with the RCMP. B.C. municipalities using RCMP services are concerned with the new RCMP budget. Where does the policing advisory panel stand on this? At a public meeting of the panel on May 9 at 5 p.m. in Esquimalt council chambers, residents can voice concerns about the policing decision. If you cannot attend the meeting, email comments to the mayor and council at council@esquimalt.ca and the Esquimalt Policing and Law Enforcement Advisory Panel at diane. knight@esquimalt.ca.

a Dayliner should come any closer to the downtown than the roundhouse. Now, build a bridge with four lanes and pedestrian and bicycle lanes – the bridge having sufficient clearance for tugs and barges to pass through. To satisfy the need for boats to reach the small-boat shipyard beyond in “the pond,” have – at the crest – a bascule bridge. This would be much shorter than the present one. All the work could be done right here in Victoria. If Mr. Harper can rethink the purchase of the F-35 fighter planes, I think Mr. Fortin can do the same with the imported

Does anyone really believe that passengers will line the platform after stepping out of their warm cars or from a bus that is headed to Victoria anyhow? People are commuting from Duncan by bus, but I don’t see a double-decker being used. Convert the track into a paved highway. As such, it would serve as an alternative to the Goldstream route in an emergency. It could happen. Dennis Parsons Victoria

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.

don’t remember the facts and figures, Lohman says. “But they remember the emotion of being in the atmosphere of these very special walkthrough set pieces, I think.” Tim Willis, director of exhibitions and visitor experience, agrees. “We’ve been working for a while on a plan to renew the entire visitor experience,” he says. “It’s just so exciting to have somebody like Jack start and find oneself fully aligned with his perspective.” When the galleries were built in the 1970s, they were state of the art, Willis says. Today, the galleries give the impression of having been deserted, he says. “What we now know is our visitors have a great appetite to know the tensions and struggles and

joys of people in the past.” Bringing science from the backrooms to the forefront is another focus for Lohman. “(Scientists) are looking very closely at the living world in British Columbia and how it’s changing, with climate change. That’s one of the areas I’d like to be able to foreground,” he says. Lohman has also inherited a vision launched by his predecessor for a major redevelopment and expansion of the museum. Finding funding for the proposal promises to be a major challenge. But it’s one Lohman has a history of overcoming. In Warsaw, he brought the museum from the red into the black. In London, he spearheaded a $20-million

redevelopment. But it was in South Africa, where museums receive no government funding, that these skills got put to the test. “I remember a situation where I couldn’t pay the staff salary bill,” he says. “Imagine, it’s coming to the end of the month and I’ve got 560 staff.” In a desperate move, he approached Daimler-Benz for help. In exchange, he agreed to display a Mercedes-Benz from the museum’s collection. “The relationship proved fantastic,” he said. “DaimlerBenz gave me three vans and I was able to do a community outreach program.” Museum funding needs to come from many sources, he says. “You’re going to need private support.” rholmen@vicnews.com

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

Victoria News captures awards Photos are among readers’ favourite aspect of their newspaper. Readers of the Victoria News familiar with the work of photographers Sharon Tiffin and Don Denton will be pleased to hear their entries were chosen for the gold medal in their categories at the recent B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Association Ma Murray Awards gala. Tiffin’s close-up shot of a seal getting ready to gnaw away on a salmon head captured top spot in the black and white photo, over 25,000 circulation category. Denton’s image of upside-down carver John Livingston doing repair work on a totem pole in Centennial Square took first place in the feature photo colour, over 25,000 category. Also at the gala, held in Richmond April 14, the Victoria News grabbed

third place in its circulation category for Newspaper Excellence. Sister paper Oak Bay News also took third in its category for general excellence, and a third-place award for a special section on outgoing mayor Christopher Causton. In its first sojourn into the Ma Murray’s in nearly a decade, Black Press’ Monday Magazine captured three gold awards, for best editorial (Grant McKenzie and Timothy Collins), best columnist (Brian Kieran) and best newspaper promotion (Monday’s redesign launch). Monday writer Danielle Pope won silvers for best feature article and best historical writing, while fellow staffer Mary Ellen Green won bronze for both environmental writing and business writing. editor@vicnews.com

A selection of work from the 240 members of the Saanich Peninsula Arts and Crafts Society will fill a gallery at Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney this weekend. Plus there’s the gift shop. “We’re all artists of one type or another,” said artist Donna Jean. The painter is in her fourth year as convenor for the SPAC annual art exhibition and sale. “We have a show once a year, this is the 59th year and it’s all volunteer driven. … We’ve got a

awards judged by Carolyn Hoag and Sylvia Bews-Wright (paintings); Paula Landsman (sculpture); Mavis Mooney (pottery); and Vijaya Taylor (crafts). Jean will be among the artists whose works are on display. “I’m going to have four pieces in the main gallery,” she said. “We also have a gift shop. … If someone purchases something from the main gallery, they’re not allowed to take it until the closing of the show. The gift shop is cash and carry. People like to have a souvenir, so that’s where they go.” As well, visitors will see three works by a celebrated Canadian guest artist. “This year we’ve got probably the best known we’ve ever had,” Jean said. Norman Yates has garnered several major Canadian awards and has work in public and private collections including the National Gallery of Canada, the Canada Council Art Bank and the Alberta Foundation of the Arts. “He’s a fabulous artist,” Jean said. “He’s done great things, we’re very proud to have him.” The abstract artist will show three one-by-two metre works, and be on hand to meet the public. He’s already had an influence on Jean, who’s been painting for about five years. “I started out pretty traditional style, representational and I’m moving more to impressionistic and abstract. I just enjoy it more. You can get so many things happening that you weren’t expecting,” she said. “I am going to try his method. I was quite inspired by seeing his work.” The art show and sale will be held April 28 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and April 29 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Mary Winspear Centre. Admission is $4 for adults. Visit www.spacsociety.com for details. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

A number of paintings crafted by a former merchant mariner who later served as a war artist for the Department of National Defence are now on display publicly for the first time. The exhibit at the Maritime Museum of B.C., entitled Ready Aye Ready: The Naval Artwork of Robert McVittie, features 22 oil paintings that depict Royal Canadian Navy ships and other aspects of navy life. McVittie, who died in 2002, first sailed with the Merchant Navy early on in his life. Several years later, in his role as an official war artist for the Department of National Defence, he documented the missions conducted by some 4,500 military members deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1991. McVittie chronicled navy life through notes, photos and videos, which he later referenced as he painted. “The way he painted water is absolutely beautiful,” said MaryAnne Dieno, the museum’s marketing events and communications co-ordinator. “I’ve never seen somebody capture it like that in a painting before.” The exhibit of original works will be on display until the end of August. The Maritime Museum of B.C. is located at 28 Bastion Sq. For museum admission details, go to mmbc.bc.ca. emccracken@vicnews.com

Candlelight tribute to honour veterans, Esquimalt centenary Erin McCracken News staff

As candlelight replaces the sunlight that slowly fades from the sky, Bob Haldane will once again marvel at the sight that transforms God’s Acre - Veterans’ Cemetery in Esquimalt into a glowing tribute. “The impact of 3,500 candles glowing in the dark really gets to people,” Haldane says. The candlelight tribute on May 31 will be extra special, signifying Esquimalt’s 100 years as an incorporated township. The 144-year-old cemetery, owned by Veterans Affairs Canada, predates the incorporated municipality, but it remains beautifully preserved as it sits surrounded by the Gorge Vale Golf Club. “You see that second cross on the right?” Haldane says, pointing to a gravesite. “That’s over 100 years old, and there’s some older than that.” The cemetery is the final resting place of military members who served “in the cause of peace and freedom.” They will be among those veterans who will be remembered during the 45-minute ceremony, says Haldane, chair of the committee that organizes the annual event. The tribute is co-hosted by Veterans Affairs Canada and the Esquimalt Dockyard Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.

The vigil is also is meant to forge a link between veterans and younger generations. The veterans pass their lit candles to young Scouts, Girl Guides, Cadets and other youth, who then place the candles on each of the 2,500 monuments and 25 interment markers in the cemetery. It is known as the ‘passing of the torch of remembrance.’ “Every grave has at least one (candle). The kids make sure of that,” Haldane says. “It’s paying respect to our fallen comrades, and that’s really important - to let young people know what the veterans went through.” It’s only fitting that Esquimalt’s centennial year be honoured at the event. Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins has been invited speak, and navy Capt. Craig Baines, commander of CFB Esquimalt, will also address the crowd. During the event, CFB Esquimalt’s Naden Band and the Victoria Children’s Choir will perform, and refreshments will be provided following the ceremony. The event happens at 6:45 p.m. on May 31 at God’s Acre - Veterans’ Cemetery, located off Colville Road behind the Department of National Defence baseball diamonds. For details, call the Esquimalt Dockyard Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion at 250-386-7635. emccracken@vicnews.com

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

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.

One Lucky dog Theresa Gorman poses with her blue healer/lab cross, Lucky near her home in the Cook Street Village area. When a neighbour heard that Gorman needed $4,500 for complicated surgery to help her two-and-a-half-year-old dog with his knee problems, she organized a neighbourhood garage sale, which happened Sunday on Oliphant Street.

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.
