for people that get diagnosed with cancer — that cancer can be beaten, that people are surviving their diagnosis and going on to healthy lives,” said local co-ordinator Patti Mertz. Although the walk itself is a little way off — June 23 and 24 — now is the time to

build a team and start fundraising. Teams are usually 10 to 15 people and each participant is responsible for raising $100, or Mertz said teams can fundraise as a group and pool their money together. Fifty-four teams have registered in the Cont. on Page 4

Solution to labour shortage

Still time to register your team for the Relay for Life From Page 3 Comox Valley so far, which Mertz finds “exciting” because only 38 had registered by this time last year and the total number of teams registered last year was 63. Standard registration is $20 until June 4, late registration is $25 until June 22, and youth registration is $15 until June 22. From 7 p.m. June 23 to 7 a.m. June 24, participants will walk the Vanier Track. Each

team is encouraged to take turns walking laps with all teammates staying at the track for the duration. However, Mertz doesn’t want people to be discouraged if they can’t stay the entire time, and urges people to participate even if they can’t stay up all night. She invites cancer survivors to come out for the pre-walk survivor reception and dinner, donated by Thrifty Foods, but

asks people to register first by calling the Canadian Cancer Society’s Comox Valley unit office at (250) 338-5454. “And we also want to invite the entire Comox Valley to come out to Relay to participate in the survivor lap and/or light a luminary to remember loved ones lost,” added Mertz. The money raised from the event will be invested in cancer research to save lives,

give information and support to people living with cancer and cancer prevention initiatives. To register a team or for more information visit www.relaybc. ca and select Comox Valley from the drop down menu. Or for specific questions related to teams and to volunteer the day of the event, contact Mertz at comoxvalleyrelay@ cancer.bc.ca or call her at (250) 218-7158.

Please apply in person with your current resume and driver’s abstract to: Campbell River Common Shopping Centre, 1440 Ironwood Street, Campbell River, BC, Friday, May 4, 2pm – 7pm or fax us at 866.342.6160

Availability of skilled personnel is one of the most urgent challenges faced by many businesses. Lack of available skilled personnel poses many problems for employers: the cost of hiring and training employees; the knowledge gap created when senior employees retire and newer employees are hired to fill the jobs; the problems created when a company has too few staff; and other issues that affect a business’s productivity, innovation and profitability. Filling the talent pool with diverse employees is one of the most effective ways to solve issues that arise from a labour shortage. The Diversity Lives Here conference (May 9 and 10 in Campbell River) will help organizations on Vancouver Island find solutions to the many challenges presented by a lack of

2X6

available, skilled personnel. Diversity Lives Here provides solutions to the skilled labour shortage that will help employers maintain their workforce while improving their bottom line. Diverse workforces increase innovation, productivity and profitability in an organization. By attracting and retaining skilled personnel, businesses have fewer costs associated with high turnover rates and training expenses. Furthermore, by having a diverse talent pool, an employer can access not only international markets but also international communities within the local market, opening an organization to new customers and clients. Diversity Lives Here takes place on May 9 and 10 in Campbell River.

Fishing 2X14 Corner with Don Daniels email: dond@campbellrivermirror.com

FISHING

There are a number of anglers who spend a lot of time fishing at the Discovery Pier in Campbell River where each week a number of Spring Salmon are being caught. On Friday, April 20 around 12 p.m., Mel Adams hooked into a 28 pound salmon using a 2 ounce sardine lure. The Discovery Pier has a culture of its own. Locals, tourists and the regular fishermen gather each day for fishing or just walking around enjoying treats from the concession stand.

On a recent visit to the river, some anglers reported that a few steelhead were caught in the upper pools. The Quinsam River is a popular spot for trout fishing and the trails are easily marked but sometimes hard to get to when trees are down.

COURTENAY – Over 100 women gathered at Crown Isle Resort recently to learn more about Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build. Guests learned about Habitat for Humanity’s project on Piercy Avenue, which will feature six homes for families in the community. They also learned about the various ways they can take part in the construction and the need to fundraise $100,000 to build the homes. The event was a chance for the women of the North Island to come together and learn about Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build Program — the very first of its kind in B.C. Guest speakers who

have been touched firsthand by Habitat’s mission — including one who received a Habitat home and one who will receive one — described the permanent change these homes make in the lives of families. Only one man attended the womenonly event. Habitat build coordinator Peter Sanderson crashed the party to give the women a vision of a build site and an idea of what they can expect when they show up to build a Habitat Home. However, he wore a pink hard hat and blonde wig, making him an honourary woman for the evening. For more information on Women Build in the Comox Valley and upcoming events, Women Build 2012 for the Comox Valley on Facebook, or e-mail womenbuildvin@ gmail.com.
