Municipalities promise money for Juno bid Committee secures pledges at 11th hour, word on funding expected soon from province Erin McCracken News staff

Eco-friendly pest control City of Victoria parks department worker Thomas Munson gently places ladybugs on a cherry tree on Broughton Street on Tuesday. Each spring since 1994, the city has released approximately 100,000 ladybugs (inset) and other insects onto trees and gardens, as a natural way to protect them from aphids, beetle larvae and spider mites. Victoria passed a bylaw in 2008 to limit the use of pesticides on public and private property.

Councillors mull the city’s future Over the coming weeks, city council will craft a list of priorities that will guide what gets done and what gets left behind. These meetings will arguably have more impact on the future of the city than any oth-

ers that council will have in its three-year term. And for the first time, they’re open to the public. The News got a taste of what’s to come at the first session held Tuesday. Please see Page A3.

Organizers of the Greater Victoria Juno Awards bid say they have enough municipal funding pledges to entice the province to significantly contribute to help bring the musical showcase here. Directors with the Capital Region Music Awards Society have been making the rounds at council meetings across Greater Victoria in recent weeks, in hopes of securing $450,000 in municipal pledges. They have not yet reached that goal, though the deadline to submit the bid is Monday (April 30). “We think we’ve got what we need right now in terms of the commitments to go to the provincial government and say there’s municipal support,” said David Hurford, with the Capital Region Music Awards Society. He said he hoped to hear by today (Friday) whether the society’s request to the province for $1.5 million will be supported. Saanich promised $100,000 on Monday. Victoria council pledged $200,000 last week, while Colwood has earmarked $16,000. Requests made to the remaining councils are in the works. On Monday night, Esquimalt council agreed in principle to pledge a maximum of $17,000 to help fund the Juno Awards, if Greater Victoria is chosen as the 2014 host. Some councillors questioned whether the event would directly benefit Esquimalt, though organizers suggested the township’s Archie Browning Sports Centre could host one of several Juno events in the lead-up to the televised awards show.

VICTORIA NEWS - Friday, April 27, 2012

CITY NEWS IN BRIEF

Voting records now searchable Finding out how Victoria city councillors vote on issues has been all but impossible for most citizens. Even for those people attending the meetings, it’s easy to miss the quick flash of hands for and against. So, Victoria city council has resolved this issue. Each councillor’s vote is finally being recorded in the minutes. The policy was introduced last month, but the evidence is now showing up online. Check it out for yourself in the minutes of the March 22 council meeting, found at victoria.civicweb.net.

Formerly homeless showcase art Artwork by tenants of Pacifica Housing’s four supported complexes will be displayed at Island Blue Art Store throughout May. Pacifica’s clients face many barriers to renting apartments in the private market, including mental health issues and addictions. Many have been homeless for a long time. “I’m nervous about showing my work because it’s part of my life,” said David Small, whose art will be displayed. “It depicts how I am dealing with my recovery and meditation in finding that solace within me.” An after-hours exhibition and sale takes place May 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and proceeds support Pacifica’s art program. For information or to book tickets, call 250-385-2131 ext 103.

Organic medicine garden opens The People’s Apothecary officially opens May 5. The medicinal herb garden, an initiative of the Green Tongue Collective, is located at 2549 Quadra St., beside the Vancouver Island School of Art. The event takes place between 1 and 4 p.m. It includes children’s storyreading, a tincture-making workshop, a tour through the garden and a participatory art installation in the school’s Slide Room Gallery.

Some may consider such amenities as Victoria’s Inner Harbour, to be world-class, but it’s not a designation council seeks.

World class no more Council looks to the future with a pragmatic eye Roszan Holmen News staff

City council ate a big slice of humble pie this week. The City of Victoria will no longer strive to be “world class.” Instead, councillors debated adopting a more “humble” mission statement, bandying about alternative words such as affordable and sustainable. Tuesday’s debate was part of the first of four strategic planning sessions. Eventually, council hopes to whittle down its list to a few areas it will focus on to the exclusion of others throughout its three-year term. For starters, however, council went back to the basics with a high-level discussion about values.

City reviews services with eye to cut $12 million Recently, city council agreed to drop this year’s property tax increase down to 3.25 per cent. It also agreed to hold future increases at this level. On Tuesday, city finance director Brenda Warner commended the decision, but also outlined the consequences. “The operating budget must be reduced by an estimated $6 million over the next four years,” she said. A review of the past six years has found that “on average, $1.5 million of unanticipated costs are added to the budget each year,” Warner said. “If we assume this trend will continue, that means there could be a potential (for an additional) $6 million in cuts.” Such cuts must be ongoing and permanent, rather than one-time only, she said. To help achieve that goal, the city will review three problematic areas: Crystal Garden, now part of the Victoria Conference Centre; Crystal Pool and downtown parking. “The subsidy to Crystal Garden is increasing … the budgeted revenue for parking is down by $500,000,” said Warner. And Crystal Pool, which receives a $1.2-million annual subsidy, is also in need of a facility upgrade, she added. rholmen@vicnews.com

West Coast navy intelligence unit shifting to East Coast Consolidation of naval units aims to save money for DND Erin McCracken New staff

The closure of an intelligence unit at CFB Esquimalt within the next two years won’t jeopardize the West Coast navy’s ability to gather data, says an Oak Baybased intelligence expert. The Department of National Defence said it has already begun the process of merging its Acoustic Data Analysis Centre (Pacific) within a similar, but larger unit at CFB Halifax, a move that will create a one-time savings of $378,000. Defence officials say the consolidation will save money, but won’t impact the military’s ability “to meet operational objectives in the delivery of naval intelligence capability.� The 27 military personnel who work at ADAC Pacific are responsible for providing acoustic analysis, operational support and training “to enhance the overall combat effectiveness of maritime surface, subsurface and air fleets,� the department said in a statement to the News.

Report cards coming on Monday Natalie North News staff

It may have taken two B.C. Labour Relations Board rulings, but parents should begin seeing report cards as early as Monday. On April 20, the LRB ruled report cards were due by the end of this week – a directive aimed at all members of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. The Greater Victoria Teachers’ Association initially was the lone holdout until the LRB issued a second directive aimed at the GVTA. In a membership meeting Monday, Victoria teachers voted to comply with that ruling. “We called the meeting thinking that people would want to review the information, and they did,� said GVTA president Tara Ehrcke. “We felt we needed to give everybody the chance to come back and discuss (the first) order and what teachers wanted to do in response.�

What if teachers defy the order? Meanwhile, teachers have just completed their first week of school after the provincial union voted last week to withdraw from voluntary extracurricular activities. The BCTF voted 73 per cent in favour of ramping up resistance to the Education Improvement Act, with an action plan that includes no longer coaching or participating in club activities outside of paid work hours. According to the BCTF code of ethics, there are relatively minor disciplinary measures that local teachers’ associations can take against teachers who choose to continue to volunteer their time. Teachers who fail to comply could face reprimand or removal from local association boards. “We made a democratic decision and the hope is that the vast majority of teachers will abide by that democratic decision on their own, understanding that once we vote, we act together in unison,� Ehrcke said.

Fines are only applicable if members choose to cross picket lines. BCTF president Susan Lambert confirmed the union has no plans at present to move from the current stage of resistance toward another fullscale walkout, as it did in March. Lambert admitted a withdrawal from extracurricular activities was a tough decision. “Very reluctantly, we come to this, but we have to make a stand when we’re being attacked in such a ham-fisted, heavy-handed way,� she said. “It’s a sad day when it comes to this, but there has to be something done about this latest legislative assault on public education.�

Dr David Zaparinuk and staff would like to welcome Dr. Meredith Standridge in joining their dental practice located on Oak Bay Avenue. Dr Standridge’s focus is in family dentistry and she is now accepting new patients.

Capital Regional District Public Advisory Notice

Macaulay Point Outfall PE-00270 Screened Sewer Bypass The Capital Regional District (CRD) wishes to advise the public that in order to repair mechanical equipment at the Macaulay Point pump station, a ďŹ ne screened sewage bypass of up to 10,000m3 to the Macaulay Point short outfall is planned for the night of May 2, 2012. Although minimum environmental and human effects are predicted as a result of the discharge, there is the potential for exposure to pathogens; therefore Macaulay Point beaches will be posted with cautionary signage, until it is determined through shoreline water sampling, that there is no risk to human health. For further information, please contact: Cam Preece, Manager CRD Core Area Operations Tel: 250.474.9617 330 View Point Road Victoria, B.C. V9A 5Y2

Reaction from the province Education Minister George Abbott told reporters the BCTF vote to ban extracurricular activities will divide teachers, punish students and leave parents overseeing functions such as grad ceremonies. “It’s their personal decision,� Abbott said. “And I don’t believe it’s appropriate for the BCTF to be trying to interfere in that.� Abbott also defended his choice of a mediator in the dispute, Charles Jago, who the BCTF alleges is biased. If talks with the BCTF fail to reach a mediated settlement, the government would likely legislate a retroactive two-year contract, ending June 30, 2013. Abbott said he can’t guarantee the dispute won’t disrupt the start of the school year next September. 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. – with files from Jeff Nagel nnorth@saanichnews.com

Esquimalt residents support municipal funding for Juno Awards committee Continued from Page A1

Calling Esquimalt’s tax dollars “precious,” Coun. Tim Morrison said the expenditure “would not be an appropriate use of funds.” Still, the majority on council viewed the event with optimism. Esquimalt Coun. Lynda Hundleby said the high-profile showcase will likely benefit musicians and artists throughout the Capital Region, including Esquimalt. “I believe that as a part of the

CRD we should put forward our small share,” she said. “I believe that this is a small amount of money, really, to participate on a regional basis.” Council’s agreement-in-principle was applauded by some. “I do agree that you have to be concerned about our tax dollars, but I think, as Coun. Hundleby said, we have to think as a region,” said Esquimalt resident Peter Ryan. “People who live here also work in Victoria, and this is a big

STEP P U

event that a lot of people are going to be involved in.” Resident Sherri Robinson said there’s a good chance Esquimalt will share in the economic windfall. “I certainly think our bed-andbreakfast people will have enough time to be able to benefit,” she said. In their pitch, organizers saidthat while the bid and event have cost other host cities between $2.5 million and $3 million, the economic spinoffs are enormous.

For St. John’s, Nfld., hosting the 2010 awards pumped an estimated $10 million into the provincial economy. “These are tough economic times for all orders of government representing taxpayers’ interests,” said Victoria Coun. Chris Coleman, who is on the bid organizing committee. “So you have to make the value statement saying, ‘This is a worthy investment for a whole range of different reasons.’” It’s anticipated that thousands

of people would attend galas, festivals, concerts and a host of other events at venues around the region in advance of the awards show. The televised awards ceremony would be held at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria. Organizers say the entire affair would create demand for 4,500 hotel rooms and 100 limousines, among other services. The 2014 Juno Awards host city will be announced this fall or next spring. emccracken@vicnews.com

Individuals making outstanding contributions to B.C.’s maritime sector may be eligible to receive a new medal, launched by the Maritime Museum of B.C. in Victoria. “We think it’s a very suitable recognition for deserving individuals who make contributions in the marine field, and there isn’t anything like this (medal) right now,� said Jan Drent, museum past-president, who sits on the seven-member awards committee. The museum issued a call for nominations last week for potential recipients of the S.S. Beaver Medal for Maritime Excellence. The first medal will be presented in the fall. Each year, up to three goldplated medals will be granted to individuals who have made significant achievements in B.C., in marine-related fields of science, technology, business, maritime skills, nautical heritage, culture and academia. “We hope that this award will help draw attention to all of these (accomplishments) that are happening (in the marine sector),� Drent said. It’s only fitting that the medals were designed with the image of the S.S. Beaver, the first steamship on the West Coast, he added. In fact, the collection of medals to be awarded by the museum was created using copper and other materials that were salvaged decades ago from

Facts about the SS Beaver ■ The ship, built in Britain in 1835 for the Hudson’s Bay Company, helped shape Victoria. “The Beaver was used as sort of a floating trading post, and worked up and down the coast,� Drent said. It later came to Victoria in 1843, transporting James Douglas to the site he had chosen the previous year to build Fort Victoria. The vessel later transported gold rush prospectors between Victoria and the Lower Mainland, and was used to conduct surveys of uncharted waters. The S.S. Beaver was later used as a tug and transport vessel before she foundered on rocks at the entrance of Vancouver’s harbour in 1888.

OUR VIEW

Juno bid shouldn’t be difficult decision You have to wonder if the ongoing attempt to bring the Juno Awards to Greater Victoria in 2014 would have a better chance of success if our city wasn’t split into 13 separate jurisdictions. The committee behind the Juno pitch is making the rounds at regional council meetings, trying to drum up $450,000 in pledges from local governments by Monday. The pitch is pretty simple and should be easy enough for individual councils to decide to support. Essentially what it boils down to is organizers asking for $1 for every citizen living in the region outside of the City of Victoria (residents there will pay $2.50 per head). Unfortunately, in an example of too many cooks potentially spoiling the broth, the simple concept is being “tweaked” by councils that want to add their own twist before supporting the bid. For the most part, it seems, the region’s cities, towns and districts think hosting the musical showcase is a good idea. Saanich has agreed to cough up $100,000 – about $10,000 less than it should, based on population – if Greater Victoria is chosen to host the awards. Esquimalt has stepped up and will chip in slightly more than the funding formula suggests. On the West Shore, Colwood has promised to meet the funding formula but other municipalities have retained their right to make up their minds later, even if later is too late. To match the “$1 per capita” needed, the West Shore would have to pony up about $61,000 total. The Capital Region Music Awards Society is also close to securing $1.5 million from the province, which has apparently said it’s willing to play along if the municipalities come up with their share. It really shouldn’t be this hard. If you don’t support the bid, say so. But if you’re agreeable then get onboard and ante up. And that should be a given, considering the Junos had an estimated economic benefit of $12.8 million and created 262 full-time jobs when the awards were held in St. John’s, Nfld. in 2010. Sure, the actual awards show will be televised from Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria. But the week-long festivities leading up to the shows would be spread around the Capital District and be a boon to local acts. Besides, the entire region benefits from the quality and quantity of hotels and attractions available to us in the region’s downtown. We’re told Winnipeg and Calgary may also be submitting bids and, if they support a bid, it’s unlikely to be nickel-and-dimed as it has been in Greater Victoria. What do you think?

For the sake of politicking, the position the Liberals are in now leaves them few options: keep their leader, lose seats and the election in 2013 (and put the blame for that loss on anyone who votes Conservative); or ditch their leader and start anew. For appearance’ sake, I’d suggest the latter. If the Liberals take cues from genuine public opinion, they’ll know Clark does not now have the support to win in 2013. Is waiting it out another 12 months to see if that changes worth losing an election? I don’t think so. If Clark wants her party to succeed after her time as premier is up, she should take her cues from what Kevin Falcon said when he launched his leadership campaign: “Listen to people. Learn from them. … And lead decisively.” If you’re not genuinely working by all three of those rules – for the sake of your province, for the sake of your party – it’s time to reflect on the opportunities lost by not living in some alternate timeline where you aren’t premier.

LETTERS

Evolution vs. creation: the conversation continues Evidence for infinite alternatives lacking Re: Evolution happens naturally, regardless of where faith lies (Letters, April 20) I’m with Ruth Magnusson (Letters, April 13). I think to accept evolution as a sufficient explanation for life as we know it requires a lot of faith. John Taylor’s letter disputing that contains its own contradiction. He talks about the animal breeders who developed different types of domestic animals and who inspired Darwin’s famous theory. But Taylor’s example obviously requires very intentional and rational breeders. Darwin’s theory, however, depends on countless tiny, random variations turning out many higher orders of living beings purely by chance. Precisely because the odds

– as calculated by various mathematicians – are so staggeringly against the present orderliness evolving in this way, some proponents of the godless explanation for life have resorted to the science fiction story line of an infinite number of universes to improve those odds. If there were such an infinity of universes, surely on one of them, or so goes the theory, life could have evolved in such an unlikely way. Evidence for this infinity of alternatives is completely lacking, of course: that is why we say faith is involved in the evolutionary theory. Even more faith is required when you realize that Darwin’s theory, like Darwin himself, is ultimately the product of random chance variations, at least according to the theory. On the other hand, according

to Magnusson’s theory, God created Darwin in His own likeness – with reason. And He created all life likewise in a rational, ordered and loving way, which is the true meaning of the Genesis account of Creation – a way that easily includes evolution. Steve Weatherbe Victoria

Evolution letter missed the point I happen to tend towards believing in the theory of evolution, even though there is much we do not yet know. But I think John Taylor (Letters, April 20) missed the point of Ms. Magnusson’s letter (Letters, April 13). He gives dogs as an example of how evolution works – that one kind of dog can be bred to have

certain characteristics. Taylor imposes preconceptions upon this fact because he believes in the theory of evolution, but this does not prove anything about the origin of species. That evolution occurs within species was not rejected in Ms Magnusson’s letter. The point of her letter was that evolution cannot account for the origin of the species. But enough on a subject that is in its infancy and about which we still have so much to learn, or reject. Believing in the theory of evolution does not make it so; it could be called faith. Joan Davis Victoria

Science needs facts, not faith to explain Re: Believing in theory of evolution requires faith (Letters,

Readers respond: Canadian justice, Truth and Reconciliation, Christy Clark Canadian justice in lawyers’ hands Re: Rioters will face little punishment (Letters, April 13) Congratulations to E.W. Bopp on his letter describing the continuing toothlessness of Canada’s justice system, comparing treatment of rioters in Vancouver with those in London, England. I have also read similar sentiments in several other recent publications. From all of these writings, it is my very clear impression that the full force of the law is increasingly viewed as an expensive joke under the present Canadian system. Justice depends entirely upon the pocketbook ability to hire a “good” lawyer. In fact, the whole idea of discovering the guilt (or innocence) of the accused has been replaced by the game of “win the case.” To this end, there appears

to be an emerging pattern of beginning defence: “Your Honour, my client was under the influence of substance,” “my client was off his medication,” “my client’s rights have been abused/ breached under Section X of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms,” “the law is unconstitutional,” etc. In at least one comment I have heard, there is to be at least one change in Canada’s court system. To wit, a graded series of prizes for offenders beating the rap. Could this be true? Perhaps when offenders “whack” their own kind (gang/ turf warfare) with no damage to innocents, why involve expensive “due process?” Have they not done decent society a favour? Perhaps even a citation is warranted. (Does not a surgeon remove dangerous tissue to save the patient?) I’ve heard the criminals’ justice system works. Perhaps our criminal justice system should also consider accountability, in

addition to rights. Stephen Lamb Victoria

Commission events sparks self-reflection Thanks to Roszan Holmen for her in-depth articles about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (News, April 11, 13, 18, 20). As a non-aboriginal person, I was honoured to attend the twoday event. It was humbling and humiliating. The depth of the sharing was profound. I am left with many opportunities to heal myself of reactions I had, and am still having, when I encounter someone or something that I judge to have played a part in the atrocities of residential schools, and the ongoing prejudice toward First Nations peoples of Canada. As I am aware of my judgement, I forgive myself for that part of me that I have avoided seeing.

April 13) This letter writer demonstrates that there is no mind more closed than that of the person who cannot accept plain evidence well documented and tested. Why can persons of faith not accept that their God may have set up a system of rules that He knew would create our world over time? The fallacies and egregious and misleading untruths her letter contains are plain evidence of her blindness to tested facts that explain our world and its development over aeons. Indeed she attempts to turn the discussion on its head with her statement that science requires faith. No, it requires facts. So-called creation science is just religious preaching that goes well beyond factual reality. James Humphries Saanich

Letters to the Editor

I look forward in anticipation to be part of the next step, a healing process for all. Joanna Wilkinson Victoria

Support for premier dubious at best Kevin Falcon and George Abbott have cast doubt on whether they will run in the 2013 provincial election, despite the fact both ran to become premier in last year’s Liberal leadership race. Would either have had such thoughts if they had won? In the old West, heroes would rush to the defence of a lady in distress. But in the B.C. Liberal corral, the two biggest cowpokes – Falcon and Abbott – appear to be riding into the sunset and leaving Christy Clark tied to the B.C. Rail tracks. Both men claim to support the premier. They support her like a rope supports a hanging person. Ron Faris Saanich

Police use Facebook to return owners’ goods Recovered stolen property often goes unclaimed at VicPD Erin McCracken News staff

Victoria police have taken the unique step of posting pictures of recovered stolen items on the department’s Facebook page. The first images of acoustic and electric guitars, even a sound mixer board, were posted on Monday in the hopes of connecting owners with their property. “This is just another tool to help us,� department spokesperson Const. Mike Russell said.

“We’re not going to be able to put everything up there ‌ But we’re going to try and get a couple of key pieces up when we can.â€? The initiative began when Victoria police Const. Kevin Nystedt, who investigates property crimes in his work with the Street Crime Unit, came to Russell. Nystedt was looking for a better way to let the public know about unclaimed stolen property and Russell suggested posting photos on the department’s Facebook page. Recovered stolen property and items turned in to the department’s front counter are kept by police for 30 days. At that point unclaimed property is auctioned off. In many cases, owners don’t notify police that their property has been stolen, Russell said.

Police spokesperson off-duty at the time Saanich police are thanking a well-known Victoria cop who helped bust a criminal at a busy Saanich shopping centre. Victoria police spokesperson Const. Mike Russell arrested a shoplifter Saturday

at the Saanich Centre London Drugs on McKenzie Avenue. Store security spotted the suspect around 4:15 p.m., grabbing boxes of allergy medication and exiting without paying. Security confronted

the man outside the store and told him he was being arrested. The suspect fled, but the security officer caught up with him a short distance away, and a struggle ensued. Russell, a Saanich resident who was Const. Mike Russell

Russell came to the aid of the security officer, who was carrying handcuffs, and helped restrain the suspect, who continued to resist arrest. A 31-year-old New Westminster resident was arrested, with $292 worth of stolen allergy medication in his possession. Last summer Victoria police Chief Const.

Refunds come to more than half Income tax filing deadline looms Vivian Moreau News staff

The April 30 deadline for filing income taxes is still a few days away, yet the Canada Revenue Agency is already crunching the numbers on who filed and how. As of April 19, more than 13 million Canadians had filed their returns. Almost half hired someone to do so using the Internet. A quarter filed their own on the Net and just less than a quarter, 23.5 per cent, used the old-fashioned method, Canada Post, to file returns. CRA goes after individuals who don’t file income tax returns. Five people were convicted in B.C. last year for failing

to file. In addition to fines, those convicted must still file returns and pay the full amount of taxes owing, if any, plus interest. If you’re overwhelmed at the prospect of sifting through that shoebox of receipts in order to do your taxes, University of Victoria educational psychologist Allyson Hadwin has some tips, such as breaking up the task into manageable goals. One day create a CRA online account, she says on her Facebook page, facebook.com/pages/ Learning-Strategies-for-University-Success/166536786712626. The next day, before dinner, fill in the T4 information. Later that evening add your T4A information. When you’re done, Hadwin says, reward yourself. That could be planning what to do with your refund. As of April 19, more than half of those who

filed their returns will receive refunds. The average refund amount to date is $1,541.87. vmoreau@oakbaynews.com

Scam time ■ If you receive an email claiming you need to provide banking and personal information in order to receive a refund, don’t believe it, says the Canada Revenue Agency. The agency does not request personal information of any kind via email from taxpayers. If you did respond to such a scam contact the RCMP’s Anti-fraud Centre by email at info@antifraudcentre.ca or call 1-888-495-8501.

Battle of the Atlantic remembered on the pond Model warship parade will pay homage to Battle of Atlantic

Those who died during the longest continuous battle during the Second World War will soon be commemorated by the Victoria Model Shipbuilding Society. The society’s fourth annual

tribute to the Battle of the Atlantic happens May 6 at 10:45 a.m., at Harrison Pond, off Dallas Road. There will be a minute of silence and a speech in honour of the sailors of the Royal

Canadian Navy and Canada’s Merchant Navy who lost their lives during the battle. Models of warships will be on parade in the pond, in recognition of the Canadian ships that were sunk by

German U-boats and bomber aircraft, as allied and German forces fought for control of the Atlantic Ocean. For details on the tribute, please call 250-385-9552. emccracken@vicnews.com TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS

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 co-operative 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’s figures, 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

Hot ticket: The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria hosts Jazz at the Gallery. Tickets $25/$35

NEWS

The Art Gallery in partnership with the U-JAM Society is proud to present Jazz at the Gallery, now in its third year. See the Gord Clements Ensemble at 2 p.m. April 29.

Two-part play explores modern post-war era Kyle Wells News staff

Hot summer nights, ice cold beer, sun-baked porches, the sweet sting of bourbon and the smooth lines of a classic car. These nostalgic, maybe even stereotypical, images define the spirit of Langham Theatre’s new production of 1959 Pink Thunderbird Convertible, written by American playwright James McLure. Set in Maynard, Texas, the play is a two-for-one look into the lives of six characters, three female, three male, in the troubled times of 1973. The Vietnam war has just ended, men are returning home to their old lives and the glory days of innocence are coming to an end. The play is made up of two, one-act plays that work separately but have connections both thematically and through character’s relationships. Two local actors-turned-directors are each taking a half and their own look at the themes and issues at the core of the whole. Paul Terry is making his directorial debut with his half of the play, entitled Lone Star. In the play three male characters are hanging out in a parking lot behind a late night bar in Maynard. Roy, the central character, is recently returned from the Vietnam war. A former jock, with all the perks that honour brings, Roy was the proud owner of the car of the title. Now Roy is trying to fit back into civilian life and figure out how to get on with it. Terry said that although it’s a story of a bygone era, its themes and intent ring true in this time of barely-post-Iraq and Afghanistan conflict. Despite the serious topics the play is a funny one, said Terry, that will get the audience laughing but give them something to chew on too.

David Lowes/Art Studio 21

The girls in Laundry and Bourbon Shara Campsall (playing Elizabeth), left, Melissa Taylor (playing Amy Lee) and Kate Pagett (playing Hattie). “It is a very funny piece and yet it does have a contemporary relevance,” Terry said. A long time actor, Terry is leaving his comfort zone to

direct for the first time. Langham’s production committee made a deliberate effort to involve young, developing theatre types in the production and approached Terry specifically to take on the challenge. “I jumped at the chance, in fact, because I thought it would be interesting to see that world from the other side,” Terry said. “It’s been fascinating actually. I think I’ve learned a lot. It’s a much more all-encompassing view you have to have as a director.” Heather Jarvie, who is an actor and director, as well as a student at the Victoria Conservatory of Music, is directing Laundry and Bourbon, the other half of the play. Two characters from Jarvie’s play are married to two of the character’s from Terry’s play, but otherwise the works are not intertwined directly. They take place in different locations, at different times, and each stands alone as a work. “At the end of the day you shouldn’t feel like you’ve seen two plays, but two different looks at one kind of story,” Jarvie said. In Jarvie’s half, three women sit on a porch and dish. They gossip, they carry on, but they also tackle some issues, such as infidelity and the challenge of reestablishing a relationship with someone who has returned from war. “It’s a little gossipy and girlie and chit-chatty but at the same time we’re also seeing some really great relationships,” Jarvie said. “It’s certainly a lot of fun but there’s some meat to it as well.” The play runs until to May 12 Tuesdays through Saturdays, at 8 p.m. Matinees at 2 p.m. are also running on May 5 and May 12. Tickets are $19 for adults, $17 for seniors/ students and $14 per for groups of 10 or more, and are available at langhamtheatre.ca or by calling 250-384-2142. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Kick off your Sunday shoes Brittany Lee News staff

Reminisce and cut loose with a modern take on Footloose performed by soon-to-be graduates from the Canadian College of Performing Arts, April 27 and 28. This take on Footloose combines the classic characters with modern pop anthems to help move the story forward.

“At the heart of this pop-infused musical are characters that we ultimately care about as they come to terms with important losses in their life,” director Darold Roles said. The audience will relate to the story���s themes and be brought back to an age of innocence, he added. Roles promises a large-scale production that will show off “the hottest triplethreat talent in Canada.” CCPA students come from all across Canada to develop and hone their act-

ing, singing and dancing skills. For many of the performers, Footloose will be their last show with the college before launching their careers. Footloose is on April 27 and 28 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the McPherson Playhouse. Tickets range from $15 (for students) to $35. For more information or to order tickets, call 250-595-9970, or visit ccpacanada.com. editor@oakbaynews.com

Pavlo performs at the Alix Goolden Hall.

World of fusion In his ninth album, Six String Blvd., Pavlo incorporates the world's most exotic instruments into his classic Mediterranean sound. Influenced by his travels, listeners are captured by the Chinese Ehru; the Portuguese Guitarra; the Arabic Flute; the Indian Sitar and the Greek Bouzouki. Pavlo has come full circle since he introduced his Mediterranean brand in 1998, once again recording an all-instrumental album. Complete with all new compositions, the album highlights Pavlo's ability to melodically unite world instruments into his sound seamlessly, all the while staying true to his distinct Mediterranean guitar signature. Pavlo performs an average of 150 concerts each year and has sold a half million records worldwide including two gold albums Fantasia and Pavlo. Pavlo continues to tour worldwide and is still driven by his father's famous words: “Have the courage to do what you love, and the drive to do it well.” Latin Guitar Fusion with Pavlo is Sunday, April 29 at the Alix Goolden Performance Hall, 907 Pandora St., Doors open at 7:15 p.m. with the show at 7:45 p.m. Tickets are $29.50.

The task was less than sexy, but participating businesses attacked it with gusto. On April 20, in honour of Earth Day, teams picked up garbage in a friendly competition for the Golden Garbage Award. In total, eleven businesses collected 33,315 pieces of garbage in one hour during the inaugural Victoria Garbage Showdown. Participating teams all brought flair to the event, many in costume, but it was Eagle Wing Tours that came out on top. The company’s employees collected 9,402 pieces of garbage in the vicinity of their business. They covered the waterfront between Ogden Point and scenic Clover Point, collecting everything from condoms to cigarette butts to plastic wrappers, plus a large, floating tire and some balloons. The win came thanks to “an incredible group of friends and family, and the drive and passion to help keep things clean in Victoria,” according to its website. rholmen@vicnews.com

Victoria sportsman’s generosity applauded Longtime rugby patron George Jones to be honoured at tribute event Erin McCracken News staff

George Jones has spent a lifetime giving back. Despite this, at age 78, he feels compelled to do more to help others. “I can’t say no to people, I’ve got to help them,” the James Bay resident says. “I’m just lucky I was born with the ability to actually do a couple of things, one of which is be a lawyer, and two, is be a coach. So the more I share, the better.” More than 300 people will gather in his honour May 2 for a testimonial dinner and live auction at the Fairmont Empress Hotel. Partial proceeds from the sold-out event will go to the George F. Jones Scholarship, offered through the Rugby Canada Foundation. The fund helps female rugby players afford postsecondary education. “He is incredibly well-liked around the community, by friends, family, colleagues,” says Brett Jones, one of Jones’ seven children and the emcee for Wednesday’s event. George Jones’ career and athletic accomplishments are

In addition to coaching, managing and playing on numerous rugby teams, he was a founding member of the Velox Rugby club, the Rugby Canada Foundation and the Victoria Commonwealth Games Society. He is also a past-president of the James Bay Athletic Association, among his other volunteer roles. In 54 years as a lawyer – Jones still practises as a fulltime tax lawyer with

Horne Coupar – he has provided thousands of hours in pro bono work to countless individuals and organizations. “Anybody who’s been in need and asked George for help has received it,” says Victoria resident Gerald Hartwig, who first met Jones 30 years ago. The idea for the tribute dinner was born about two months ago when a group of friends chatted while waiting for Jones during

their weekly social gathering. “George was late for breakfast so we took the opportunity to talk about him,” Hartwig quips. “And we just talked about all the incredibly great things that he has done for the community. It’s always from the goodness of his heart – never for self-promotion.” Indeed, there are few people in Victoria who have not benefited from Jones’ generosity, Brett says. “He has always

SPORTS Racer drags into hall of fame Travis Paterson 250-480-3279 sports@vicnews.com

Quarter Miler racer Al Clark’s legacy continues

IN BRIEF

Girls among top-100 skaters Victoria hockey players Megan Saunders and Cara Macfarlane are competing in the prestigious U18 B.C. Cup, April 25 to 29 in Invermere. The tournament is a collection of B.C. and the Yukon’s top 100 female hockey players born in 1995 and 1996. Both Saunders, who will play for the Wildcats, and Macfarlane, who’s on the Wolverines, were born in ’95. Players are selected from the tourney to be invited to the Team B.C. provincial camp in Salmon Arm from May 17 to 21.

Travis Paterson News staff

The photographs are everywhere. Cars, drivers and race scenes cover the walls of Al Clark’s modified house garage in Fairfield. Born in England, Clark was raised in Victoria since the age of three, and started drag racing in 1962, his last year of high school. The car was owned by the Quarter Miler’s Club of Victoria, though there was no drag strip in town. His first real race was on an airplane runway in Arlington, Wash., which the airport used to shut down every couple of weeks for racing. “I did pretty good with that car, had some pretty successful days. We raced in Arlington for years.” Clark eventually bought the dragster from the Quarter Miler’s in 1966 and kept on winning races, rotating between Mill Bay’s Van Isle Dragway (1967-72), Mission City and San Cobble, which was the private road used to haul limestone from a quarry near Bamberton. “I kept improving it and it got faster and faster.” Throughout his 12-year racing career Clark raced in a few other dragsters, but his last race on the straightaways was in ’74, the same year he sold the car. And so it’s as a drag racer that Clark goes into the Greater Victoria Auto Racing Hall of Fame’s class of 2012. He’ll be inducted during Saturday night’s (April 28) banquet at the Eagle Ridge Community Centre in Langford. Clark is being inducted along with stock-car racers Tim Christy and Gordie Alberg, and pioneers Harold Corbett, Mark Meeres and Barbara Prettie. “You look back at the people who came from Victoria: Billy Foster, the first Canadian to race in Nascar, and Grant King, who built Indy cars in

Al Clark is one of three 2012 inductees to the Greater Victoria Auto Racing Hall of Fame. His home garage is tailored to work on 1932 Fords, like this original ’32 Ford Tudor. Indianapolis. “It means a lot (to be in the hall with them) and all the great (circle-track) racers. And me being only the second drag racer inducted after Burt Sweeting (2011),” Clark said. Nowadays Clark is known for his work with 1932 Fords, reproducing them, repairing them, and organizing Victoria’s popular Deuce Days event.

“Deuce Days draws far and wide. I’ve got longdistance owners wanting to pre-register.” The seventh Deuce Days festival is set for July 2013, and will draw about 900 coupes and various classics to the Inner Harbour of Victoria. About 450 of those will be the classic ’32s, or deuces, that the festival is named after. sports@vicnews.com

Most, but not all school sports will survive BCTF protests Mountain biking provincials axed Travis Paterson News staff

Good news for the Oak Bay Barbarians. The only thing getting between No. 2-ranked ’Barbs and an AAA rugby provincial championship is a bunch of rugby teams. After members of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation voted last week in favour of withdrawing voluntary extracurricular services, it looked like provincial high school sports tournaments were doomed. But that’s not necessarily so, said Sue Keenan, executive

director of B.C. School Sports, which works independently of the BCTF and oversees the many aspects of school sports including provincial tournaments. “As of this morning (April 24), the sports going forward are rugby, badminton, tennis and girls soccer. “What’s still questionable are track-and-field and golf. We’ll know by the end of the week if those (provincials) will happen.” Track and Field commissioner Kevin Mennie, who works out of St. Andrew’s regional school, said the league will try to finish (the last meet is next week), then make a decision for Lower Island and Island championships. “It’s very dependent on schools who can compete.”

Local Dining in Victoria

There is an understanding that teachers continuing to help with school sports won’t be sanctioned. But there has been one casualty confirmed. There will be no provincial championship for mountain biking. Regular mountain biking races will continue in Greater Victoria, however, as part of the School Bike League which encompasses all cycling disciplines. “All leagues will continue running, and I hope they continue happening and have fun out there,” Keenan said. Most of the sports will be sorted out by today (April 27). In a lot of instances, parents or volunteers from the community have stepped up to help school teams carry on. sports@vicnews.com

Titans spike silver at B.C.s

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

University of Victoria and Canadian national under-20 player Jaclyn Sawicki, 19, faces Bays United and Glenlyon Norfolk School player Caitlyn Ciceri, 13, during an improvised game of soccer on the provincial legislature.

Beautiful game gets $2M boost Players from the Canadian senior women’s national team, the University of Victoria Vikes women and the Bays United Gold girls played a pickup game on the lawn in front of the legislature on Tuesday (April 24) to celebrate the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup coming to Canada. Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Ida Chong announced a $2 million backing to help Vancouver host matches during the World Cup, which is the largest women’s-only sporting event in the world. “Seeing it in Vancouver would be absolutely amazing,” said 19-year-old Vike Jaclyn Sawicki.

The Coquitlam native already has one cap with the senior women’s national team and dreams of playing in the 2015 World Cup just minutes from her hometown. Current Vike Shannon Elder (Claremont) said the Vikes enjoyed travelling to Vancouver to see the semifinal and final of the recent CONCACAF women’s Olympic qualifying tournament at B.C. Place. Without a sizable stadium, Victoria is out of the running as a host for the 2015 Women’s World Cup. sports@vicnews.com

For the second time this season, Club Gecko has put a lickin’ on the Victoria Titans in a tournament final. The Victoria Titans Red girls volleyball team settled for silver, losing to Vancouver’s Club Gecko in the final of last weekend’s U13 Girls Provincial Championships, held at Burnaby’s Harry Jerome Sports Centre. For the Titans Red, meeting Club Gecko in the finals is becoming something of a routine. Club Gecko went undefeated the whole year, having beat the Titans Red in the Super Spike final back in March. In Saturday’s (April 21) final, the Titans fell in two sets, 25-13 and 25-17. The Titans volleyball organization submitted two clubs into the girls U13 championships, with the Titans Red, made up of 12-yearolds, and the Titans Blue, made up of 11-year-olds. For a first-year team the Titans Blue finished a respectable eighth out of the 24 Div. 1

Philanthropy

The Victoria Foundation & Black Press Working Together – how philanthropy shapes our community Eagle Wing Tours is the most recent business to join the Victoria Foundation’s 1% for the Planet partners. Note: this photo was taken with a telephoto lens, therefore visual compression makes it seem that the whales are closer to the boats than is really the case. Eagle Wing adheres to 100 metre and 183 metre viewing guidelines for Canadian and U.S. waters respectively. Volunteers with SeaChange Marine Conservation Society work on habitat restoration along Tod Inlet on the Saanich Peninsula.

By land and sea:

Business and environmental groups both play a part in environmental philanthropy Respondents to the Victoria Foundation’s 2011 Vital Signs® survey ranked our natural environment as number one of the 10 best things about Greater Victoria. The following is a sample of 2012 environmental projects supported by the foundation. The Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team coordinates efforts to protect and restore these dwindling ecosystems and the more than 100 at-risk species that make their homes in these environments. The team will use a $4,000 grant from the Victoria Foundation to deliver a series of regional workshops on its revised National Recovery Strategy for Garry Oak and Associated Ecosystems and Associated Species at Risk. “We believe everyone can have an impact on this work, so our idea was to develop a strategy that outlines something everyone can do,” said executive director Shyanne Smith. In addition to outlining the progress made to date, the new strategy will identify activities for individuals, local government planners, researchers and others. Homeowners, for example, are encouraged to use the tools and resources the team has developed to restore lawns or yards to Garry Oak meadows. The workshop schedule will be finalized in May. Check www.goert.ca for updated information. The Georgia Strait Alliance is using its $11,000 grant from the Victoria Foundation to

expand its Clean Marine B.C. program in the Capital Regional District, supporting area marinas to achieve eco-certification. Certification is based on environmental best practices including using environmentally friendly marine products and construction, developing waste management and recycling strategies, and optimizing energy and water conservation. “Benefits include a cleaner marine environment, a more environmentally conscious boating community, increased business for participating marinas, cost savings and improved community values in the CRD and beyond,” said Clean Marine program coordinator Michelle Young. The Georgia Strait Alliance is also publishing a green boating tips sheet to highlight how the boating community can reduce its environmental footprint. See www.GeorgiaStrait.org for more information. The SeaChangeMarine Conservation Society is using a $8,200 grant from the Victoria Foundation to help restore Tod Inlet. Executive Director Nikki Wright describes the area as a cultural and ecological treasure on the Saanich Peninsula. SeaChange is working in partnership with BC Parks, local First Nations communities and volunteers to bring back eelgrass and native terrestrial plant ecosystems by transplanting eelgrass plots, removing invasive plants species on the upper reaches of the inlet, planting native plants and offering ethno-botanical tours and cultural events. The project is called Connecting Cultures

to Place because Wright says it is about cultural and ecological restoration. “This inlet brings together cultures with deep roots in this place,” she said. “The Coast Salish hunt, fish, gather and practice sacred ceremonies here. Sikh and Chinese labourers worked in the former cement plant now known as Butchart Gardens. People of all ages and backgrounds are drawn to the tranquility. Restoring the inlet is restoring our spirits.” Upcoming opportunities to volunteer with invasive species removal will take place April 28, May 12 and May 26. Email seachange@shaw.ca for more information. 1% for the Planet is an international movement to engage local businesses in environmental philanthropy. The Victoria Foundation is one of Canada’s community foundations that is committed to promoting the 1% program. 1% members recognize their responsibility to – and dependence on – a healthy environment by donating a minimum of one per cent of their revenues or sales annually to environmental organizations. The Victoria Foundation’s partners in 1% for the Planet are: Eagle Wing Tours, the Good Planet Company, Hemp and Company, and Horne Coupar Barristers and Solicitors. “At Eagle Wing we believe that being a responsible steward means being active, positive contributors to the ecosystem we love and are able to make our living from,” said Brett Soberg, co-owner with Don Stewart of Eagle

Wing Tours, the newest 1% member in Victoria. “Our customers can take pride in knowing that their tourism dollars are leaving a positive impact on the whales and the marine environment we all depend on.” For more information see www.victoriafoundation.ca under “Leadership Projects.”

Road ahead made smoother for local family The bright blue 1999 Dodge Caravan was the same colour as Joey WilsonSmithenson’s balloon, but it was the smile on the 12-year-old’s face that stole the show JENNIFER BLYTH Wednesday at Galaxy BLACK PRESS Motors. Thanks to a coalition of community support, Joey and his dad, Scott Smithenson, were picking up the van that will now make their lives a whole lot easier. Joey, who attends Glanford Middle School with his sister, Jillian, 13, has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Scott, a single parent, is currently completing his Community Support Education program at Camosun College, training he plans to put to work in a new career following graduation. The new van will not only make daily family life simpler, but also be a huge boost in his plans to return to work. Without the unexpected support from the community, however, a vehicle wouldn’t have been possible for a few years down the road, he says, noting even something as basic as grocery shopping will now be so much easier for the family that previously walked or bused. “It will be a big boost for our family,” Scott says. “It’s going to be great to be able to get out in the community more, to have more freedom and be more mobile.” Of course, any car owner knows that purchasing the vehicle is just the start; issues such as insurance and

maintenance can also be prohibitive, but for the Smithesons, they’ll have a year without having to worry about those costs too. The donation came together thanks to Reinert Peterson, whose son Evan is Joey’s good friend. A comment to Gorge Vale Automotive owner, David Christison, about how the family was making do without a vehicle led to the formulation of the idea. “In addition we’re going to supply any maintenance for a year and keep it running smoothly,” Christison says. A call to Maxxam Insurance netted full insurance coverage, while another call to Peninsula Co-op brought a full tank of gas.

“The fact that Reinert thought he could get the industry as a whole to be a part of it, it just seemed like something we could work at together,” says Galaxy Motors general manager David King, noting that it was the second request Galaxy had received in a short time for a local family in need. The generosity of Galaxy owner Phil Dagger meant they didn’t have to choose between two equally deserving families. “Galaxy has a mandate to be quite active locally, so to be able to help a single dad, going to school to work in a similar field to help others, it was an opportunity we were happy to take advantage of,” King says.

Second Park ‘n’ Shine comes to Costco May 21 Organizers of the second annual Langford Costco Park n’ Shine Car Show May 21 are hoping the community and local car enthusiasts will help make this year’s fundraiser an even greater success for BC Children’s Hospital. Last year’s inaugural event raised more than $7,000 in donations, says Costco’s Nicole Gillis.

Gillis is hoping the local business community will get behind the fundraiser, either with a monetary donation (where a tax receipt can be issued), a door prize, or by entering the show with a vehicle or a vendor table. In addition to donations, registration also goes to BC Children’s Hospital, Gillis notes.

Gates open at 9 a.m. for the May 21 show, running from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fees are $15 to pre-register (bring registration and payment to the Langford Costco and ask for Nicole) or $20 if registering at the show. For more information, contact Nicole Gillis at ngillis99@gmail.com or 250-893-0455.

Victoria drivers NASCAR bound The season opening of Western Speedway may be just around the corner, but for some drivers, racing has already gotten under way. Central Saanich’s Ron Jay, who has spent time in Victoria racing go-karts and sprint cars, has taken a big step by putting together a five-race program in the NASCAR K & N West series. California’s John Wood has provided a Dodge Charger for Jay to compete in. The second race in this year’s series, two weeks ago at the Havasu 95 Speedway in Arizona, had the 43-year-old career truck driver qualifying 16th, then running as high as 15th in the race before dropping to 21st with electrical troubles. The next race for Jay will be May 5 in Stockton, Ca. Another Victoria driver who will be making his debut in the K & N series is the Highlands’ Josh Reaume. The 21-year-old university student will climb behind the wheel of the Colonial Countertops Ford Fusion and hopes to qualify for this weekend’s third race in the NASCAR K & N West series at the Utah Grand Prix. Reaume’s previous NASCAR experience includes attempting to qualify for the East/ West K & N series shootout in 2010, at Erwindale Speedway in California. One other Island driver will also be seeking his NASCAR debut. Nanaimo’s Mike Haslam, son of Roy Haslam who, incidentially, is slated for induction in this year’s Victoria Sports Hall of Fame, will drive a Dodge Charger in the K & N West series at the 3/8 mile Las Vegas Speedway Bullring on June 21.

Buick introduces new 2013 Enclave New design cues, technologies enhance the industry’s top three-row luxury crossover METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

The new 2013 Buick Enclave is the evolution of the industry’s best-selling three-row luxury crossover. It offers new styling, new safety technologies, in-vehicle connectivity and a more refined driving experience. LED daytime running lamps and LED taillamps complement a more sculpted exterior design. The interior is more contemporary, with ambient lighting and IntelliLink in-vehicle communications with touch-screen control and navigation.

The industry’s first front centre air bag system and new dual-flow front struts highlight the safety and performance enhancements. The Enclave is offered in front-wheeldrive and all-wheel-drive models, and powered by a direct-injected 3.6-litre V6 and an updated six-speed automatic transmission that contribute to the more refined driving experience. Buick’s QuietTuning engineering process reduces, blocks and absorbs unwanted noise from the Enclave’s cabin, making it quieter than a Lexus RX350. It goes on sale this fall.

Self-driving car in Cadillac’s future ‘Super Cruise’ technology could be ready by mid-decade METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Cadillac is road testing a semi-autonomous technology it calls “Super Cruise” that is capable of fully automatic steering, braking and lanecentering in highway driving under certain optimal conditions. The system could be ready for production vehicles by mid-decade. Super Cruise is designed to ease the driver’s workload on the freeway, in both bumper-to-bumper traffic and on long road trips by relying on a fusion of radar, ultrasonic sensors, cameras and GPS map data. Many of the building block technologies for Super Cruise are already available on the all-new 2013 Cadillac XTS and ATS luxury sedans, as part of the available Driver Assist Package. It is the first Cadillac system to use sensor fusion to provide 360 degrees of crash risk detection and enhanced driver assist features, including: • Rear Automatic Braking • Full-Speed Range Adaptive Cruise Control • Intelligent Brake Assist • Forward Collision Alert • Safety Alert Seat • Automatic Collision Preparation • Lane Departure Warning • Side Blind Zone Alert • Rear Cross Traffic Alert • Adaptive Forward Lighting • Rear Vision Camera With Dynamic Guidelines • Head Up Display The key to delivering semi-autonomous capability will be the integration of lane-centering technology that relies on forward-looking cameras to detect lane markings and GPS map data to detect curves and other road characteristics. Even when semi-autonomous driving capability is available on vehicles, the system will have operational limitations based on external factors such as weather and visibility of lane markings. When reliable data is unavailable, the driver will need to steer.

BY KATE WELLS – BC SENIOR DRIVERS /DRIVEWISE DRIVER TRAINING

The infamous shoulder check is often missed on an assessment, whether it’s a senior or a novice driver. Many simply don’t know to do it, or don’t do it at the proper time – but you must in order to pass an ICBC road test and be safe on the road.

0

NO COMPARISON. NO COMPROMISE.

.

When it comes to senior drivers, we assess hundreds throughout British Columbia each week, and almost all of them make this common error. Most of the time this is because driving has changed so much over the years, and checking a blind spot was not a priority when the senior driver learned to drive. Mobility issues can also make it difficult to perform a proper shoulder check.

However, every car has blind spots. Even when properly adjusted, there are still large areas you cannot see in your mirrors. There are four blind spots around your vehicle – at the front, back and on each side. The most dangerous are the side blind spots. If you rely only on your mirrors to change lanes or direction, you are missing a whole area that can hide other road users.

Shoulder check is crucial to safe driving A shoulder check is a simple maneuver that could save you from having a collision on the road. We teach our senior drivers the following technique – CHECK YOUR MIRROR, SIGNAL AND THEN SHOULDER CHECK. This, with practice, will become routine and will alleviate driver error when changing lanes, direction or turning right.
