Protest pops up in Oak Bay Oak Bay residents hit the street to save heritage Brittany Lee News staff

Residents in Oak Bay are frustrated with developers building boxy, “characterless” homes in their neighbourhood and want to set up a design committee. A group of almost 20 Oak Bay residents gathered at the Oak Lanes building site in the 1000block of Monterey Ave. morning, wielding “Eventually, Friday signs that displayed their it’s not going to frustrations. “Some developers just be the charming, don’t have invested interest in Oak Bay, they don’t historic, leafy the passion neighbourhood understand for our community,” said that it was.” Mary Douglas, a resident - Rennie Knowlton of Oak Bay for 24 years. We adore our community and they’re destroying it. The demonstration came after the group was told by council a week ago that there’s “nothing” they can do about the situation, Douglas explained. “That was really discouraging, and we just don’t think there is nothing we can do,” she said. During last week’s council meeting, about 50 residents convened to voice their concerns to council and asked that a committee be set up to monitor the types of homes being built in Oak Bay. The residents’ main concern are the “box structures” being built in their neighbourhoods, with little regard or respect to the neighbouring houses, Douglas said. These new properties maximize the lots by being built “right to the property line,” she explained, and without attempt to save existing trees. PLEASE SEE: Style at issue for neighbours, Page A17

Tea Party celebrates with a bang Laura Lavin News staff

Oak Bay Tea Party organizers are adding some ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ to this year’s celebration. To help mark the 50th birthday of the Oak Bay Tea Party this year, visitors will be treated to the pop and bang of a fireworks display. “This is the first one in a long time and

it’s especially because it’s the 50th Oak Bay Tea Party,” said Tea Party Society chair Bill Murphy-Dyson. The Tea Party does not usually include a fireworks display, but with the assistance of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, this year’s festivities will be extra special. “Kevin and Shawna Walker of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel are footing the entire bill for the fireworks – even unopened as (the hotel) still is,” Murphy-Dyson said.

The fireworks will fill the night sky at 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 2 from Mary Tod Island. “It’s a great thing for the 50th birthday of the Oak Bay Tea Party. We’re really excited about it. Mayor and council is behind it, as is the Oak Bay Fire Department. It’s great of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel to step up to the plate like this,” Murphy-Dyson said. editor@oakbaynews.com

Clive and Christine Tanner begin the packing process in the former Grafton Bookshop on Oak Bay Avenue.

Grafton Books closes its doors Book seller can’t hang onto Oak Bay business Vivian Moreau News staff

Too few customers has spelled the death knell for another Oak Bay business. Clive and Christine Tanner have owned Grafton Bookshop for just four months, but closed the Oak Bay Avenue shop at the end of April. On Sunday, April 29, the couple, with son Peter and grandson Malcolm, were carrying shelves from the

basement to a moving van. Jill Grafton had been the couple’s partner in Beacon Books in Sidney but decided to venture out on her own, opening Grafton Books in 1999. She sold the shop in 2004 to Kathie Walters of Abe Books who sold it to the Tanners and their son, Marc, in 2008. His parents purchased it from him in January. “We can run many stores but the business just doesn’t seem to be here, unfortunately,” Clive said. “In our view this is the best-looking bookstore in the Victoria area, a lovely store, but we just can’t afford to keep carrying it.” Christine pointed out that

Oak Bay Council will establish a steering committee to review the process of implementing a new Official Community Plan. The committee, to consist of four Oak Bay residents and three Oak Bay councillors, will advise council on selecting a consulting firm and work with the consultants to develop a detailed OCP review process. “This is the first step in what is a very important challenge for our community, Nils Jensen namely to create a common vision for what we want our community to look like in 25 to 50 years time,” Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen said. “It will require hard work from all of us, and thoughtful introspection and debate.” A call for residents interested in joining the committee will be advertised on the municipal website soon, Jensen said. Council will also put out a request for consultants interested in assisting with the OCP. The consultants will lead the review and present a new plan to council. “This planning (process) will guide us in making decisions about our community,” Jensen said. Council expects to have both the committee and consultants chosen sometime in June, with requests for proposals to qualified consultants sent out by the end of June, according to Jensen. The review steering committee will meet with council at least once every two months, according to a staff report presented to council on April 30. Consultants would be in direct contact with council regarding key decisions. The Oak Bay OCP was first developed in 1981 and has not been revised since the mid-1990s. Council has set aside a maximum $140,000 for consulting services for the OCP review project. The project, which was introduced in March, is expected to be complete in late fall 2013. reporter@vicnews.com

Oak Bay police work to curb theft from unlocked vehicles Police Lock It or Lose It program now underway Erin McCracken News staff

Laptops, iPads, cellphones. There is a treasure trove of goodies ripe for the plucking from unlocked vehicles in Oak Bay. “These aren’t cheap items. It’s not like some change or a pack of cigarettes in your console,” said Oak Bay Chief Const. Mark Fisher. “Those are significant things to be leaving on your car seat with your doors unlocked.” In an effort to educate the public and cut down on the number of theft-from-vehicle calls Oak Bay police respond to, officers have begun leaving Lock It or Lose It notes in unlocked vehicles. The education campaign was recently initiated by two constables who decided Oak Bay needed a program similar to what is already in place in other communities. The officers went on preventative foot patrols in a South Oak Bay neighbourhood where there had been a spike in thefts from unlocked vehicles. In one hour, they found 17 unlocked auto-

mobiles that had valuables in plain site. Each time, the constables signed a Lock It or Lose It notice and noted the time of day, before leaving the paper in the vehicle, and locking the car up tight. “They got (the idea) out of frustration,” Fisher said. In about 90 per cent of theft-from-vehicle cases that police respond to, the vehicle doors were left unlocked. On one night alone, late last month, there were 16 thefts from vehicles. “No one wants to see people victimized,” the police chief said. “And there’s a very easy way to prevent that.” The education campaign is meant to serve as a reminder to people, some of whom may forget to lock their car doors, while others may not realize that thefts can happen quite easily. “I hope it creates some awareness that if people do come out to their vehicle in the morning and see one of the notices inside and the doors locked, that it’s a bit of a wake-up call – that’s how easy a theft could have happened,” Fisher said. “’Cause if our guys walk by and open a door, then so can a thief.” emccracken@vicnews.com

Deer team meets tonight Bambi brigade set to solve deer population issues Brittany Lee News staff

Members of the recently appointed deer management Citizens Advisory Council will meet for the first time tonight (May 9). The 11 member committee, which includes representatives from the commercial farming and First Nation communities, was announced by the Capital Regional District in late April. “A variety of people with a variety of experiences” were selected, according to Vic Derman, vice-chair of the CRD’s planning, transportation, and protective services committee. The committee put out a call for citizens to form a deer advisory council in March, in

response to controversy over how to handle the overpopulation of deer, and the number of deer-human conflicts in the Capital Region. Derman added that he tried not to select applicants who had already publicly voiced their opinions on the issue. “If somebody said, ‘I’m definitely against this’ or ‘I’m definitely for this’ … there’s probably a little bit of detriment of being on the (deer advisory) committee,” Derman said. “Everybody will have some personal opinion prior to going in but the hope, for me at least, is that we picked people who would be willing to put that aside, listen to all the evidence, and come up with what, in their view, is the best possible answer.” Members of the group, with support from technical and scientific experts, will help guide the development of a regional deer management strategy.

The group’s first meeting takes place Wednesday night from 5:45 to 8:45 p.m. in room 107 of the CRD headquarters, 625 Fisgard St. Members of the public are welcome attend. Recommendations to the CRD are due in July. The group consists of five representatives from Victoria, Esquimalt, Oak Bay, and Saanich, four from the Peninsula, and two from the West Shore. The members are: Richard Christiansen, Wendy Fox, Lisa Kadonage, Sol Kinnis, Terry Michell, Robert Moody, Patrick O’Rourke, Jocelyn Skrlac, Philip Tom, Kerri Ward and Robin Bassett. Of the group three are commercial farmers; Fox from Silver Rill Farm, Kinnis, co-owner of urban farming co-operative City Harvest, and Michell of Michell Farms.

What would change if government was 75 per cent women? Middle school student wins with her answer to the question of political role reversal Natalie North News staff

Longer maternity leaves, universal daycare and more sex education programs. Those were three of Rebecca Hansen’s winning answers to the question: “What would change if your government was 75 per cent women?” In her filmmaking debut, the Grade 8 student from Arbutus middle school addressed the issue of men outnumbering women in in parliament by three-to-one and caught the attention of female MPs across party lines. Hansen’s mixed-media video, “What If…” won Dancing with the Octopus: Women in Politics’ filmmaking challenge on May 1. “There have been so many issues and scandals and things just don’t seem to be working

on Parliament Hill,” Hansen said. “This is a thought about ways to solve it and how ridiculous it is that a first-world country like Canada still has such a low number of female MPs.” Oak Bay-based filmmaker Sandy Mayzell launched the multi-platform media project Dancing with the Octopus – which includes a website, web series, documentary, rock opera and comic book – as a way to engage women over a wide demographic with political questions and political action. Mayzell hoped that by reaching out through its inaugural film contest, she would initiate a conversation and hear what the world has to say around the underrepresentation of women in politics. “Creativity is key,” Mayzell said. “Asking people to put thoughts together in a creative way helps get their message across better because it’s not just complaining.” Social media spread word of the contest quickly. Dancing with the Octopus received submissions from all corners of the world, including one from Istanbul, Turkey, where the filmmaker captured images of physical violence

and India also submitted videos. “There was a common voice that women all over the world are not getting anywhere near an equal voice with men behaving badly,” Mayzell added. At 13, Hansen was by far the contest’s youngest entrant. She heard of the opportunity via CBC Radio and crafted the minute-long video on her own, outside of a few “helpful critics,” she said. It was selected by a jury of five Canadian MPs from the five federal parties – Carolyn Bennett (Liberal), Elizabeth May (Green), Maria Mourani (Bloc), Denise Savoie (NDP) and Wai Young (Conservative). Hansen will also receive a $500 prize with the honour. Though the contest was a success, the next step for Dancing with the Octopus is to promote political involvement – action which begins at the polls, Mayzell said. “As ridiculous as politics sometimes seem, we can change it and we have to show that we’re engaged for politics to ever change,” Hansen said. “I really hope for people to see that we have the power.” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Spring time brings old scams Handyman frauds arrive with nicer weather Vivian Moreau News staff

So far it’s only been happening in the Comox Valley, but Oak Bay Police is warning about scams targeting seniors. In two recent incidents, Comox Valley seniors were defrauded of thousands of dollars by men posing as handymen or town officials. Seniors are the likeliest targets for home improvement fraudsters, Oak Bay police said. “Since

they’re retired, they are mostly home during the day. They answer their phones, read their mail and are often too polite to negotiate price. Some are alone and more willing to talk to strangers,” Oak Bay’s police chief Mark Fisher pointed out. In one Comox case, a woman gave $4,000 to a man for work he supposedly completed around the house, jobs that were never done. The man went so far as to drive the senior to the bank to withdraw cash. In the second incident a senior was defrauded of $500 by a man posing as a public employee who said repairs were necessary on her property.

Although contractors knocking on your door can be legitimate, Oak Bay Police say there are steps to take before signing up for work. Get a second estimate from another contractor or ask a friend or family member to look at the contract. Ask for references and never sign anything on the spot or pay upfront. Although scammers haven’t hit Oak Bay yet, Deputy-Chief Kent Thom said an older scam recirculated recently when a senior was called by someone claiming to be a relative asking for cash. “Seniors are big-time targets for fraudsters,” he said. editor@oakbaynews.com

Tea Party turns 50 The Oak Bay Tea Party is on track for this year’s 50th anniversary event to take place June 2 and 3 at Willows Beach Park. Oak Bay council approved a $7,000 grant recently and also waived $800 in municipal fees for the event. Mayor Nils Jensen also offered to connect organizers with a local producer of recyclable bins whose bins could be used at the event, in order to cut back on garbage removal costs. “We want people to go green and this is one way to do it,” he said. This year Jensen will face former mayor Christopher Causton in the two-day event’s highlight, the tea cup race.

OUR VIEW

To each his own There is an old saying that you can’t legislate good taste. Whether or not a new home planned to be built on Monterey Avenue is in good taste is not for us to say. The owner of the property has decided to build a modern structure, one that takes advantage of the light and includes energy-efficient additions. It is being built within the confines of Oak Bay’s zoning regulations and bylaws. Some neighbours are against the project due to the loss of mature trees, and some are worried about damage already caused to adjacent fences and property. These are significant concerns that should be taken into consideration when building a new home in a fully developed neighbourhood. Most residents, however, are worried about what a more modern structure built among their traditional homes will look like. The residents say the newer, more modern designs ruin the character of their neighbourhoods. They are adamant that Oak Bay council set up a design committee to decide what type of designs may be appropriate for the area. But therein lies the problem. For some, two-storey structures may be acceptable, while others prefer a bungalow. Can a roof line be flat, or must it be peaked? And if peaked, what degree is acceptable? And if we open the door to design, where does it end? Will a committee choose what style of windows you can have, what style of doors? How about the colour of your home – do you still get to choose? Change, as they say, is inevitable. As the housing stock ages, some older homes will have to be removed to make way for newer homes. While new construction changes the character of a neighbourhood, it does not necessarily ruin it. To add to the clichés, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure – more modern homes will include modern energy efficiencies, which is good for all of us. Trees removed will be replaced by new trees and plantings – perhaps more suitable to the local environment than the ones removed. Over time, landscaping will mature and the new homes will no longer stick out like sore thumbs. We can’t control everything, least of all what our neighbours do. What we can do is create healthy discussion about real concerns such as fences being knocked down or damage to adjacent properties and leave the design ideas up to the owner. After all beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Design is a choice for the homeowner

More than twice that many tankers already sail each year through the Strait of Juan de Fuca, past the Gulf and San Juan Islands. Many are heading to refinery complexes at March Point and Cherry Point in Washington. These supertankers can be seen sailing past Victoria most days. Strangely, this U.S. crude traffic excites no protests. Some of the smaller tankers come in to fill up from the TransMountain pipeline in Burnaby, whose operator is preparing a bid for expansion. This attracts protests organized by people paid to oppose Alberta “tar sands” oil. Where do urban protesters think we get the gasoline and diesel fuel sold at B.C. filling stations? Do they think it’s all made at the little Chevron refinery in Burnaby, the last remnant of refining capacity in southern B.C.? We could use a serious debate about how B.C. handles petroleum. Instead, we see factually inaccurate claims promoted by U.S. interests to attack Canadian crude only. Our opposition politicians and media mostly just go along for the ride.

LETTERS Bike seizure editorial short on suggestions Labels donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solve homeless problem

Re: Civil forfeiture muddies message (Our View, May 4) This editorial is basically filled with platitudes and does a disservice to the police, whose job is never easy at the best of times. Your suggested alternative to the seizure of the motorbike, that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the police could better serve their public by ensuring this rider, and other potential daredevils, learn about the very real consequences of very bad decisions,â&#x20AC;? offers no advice as to how the police might do this. And you justify your complaint on the grounds â&#x20AC;&#x153;that the public has not heard enough evidence to merit the police taking away the personal property of an Esquimalt mom.â&#x20AC;? Seems to me that the bike shown on the video and the one the police took away are one and the same. So what else do we need to know? I wish you could have sat in the same provincial courtroom I did recently. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the wording of the charge, but the man found guilty had hit and injured a woman. The Crown, as I recall, wanted a nine-month prison term and the defence wanted about four months. The judge told them he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like either of their solutions because â&#x20AC;&#x153;warehousingâ&#x20AC;? someone for a period of time didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to him to have â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to borrow your words â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;a real consequence.â&#x20AC;? He wanted something that had a sting in it to make it abundantly clear to the man that what he had done was very, very, serious. So he hit the man where it hurts most, in his pocketbook, with a $2,500 fine. In my view, seizing that bike sends the same kind of message. Bill Ellis Oak Bay

We were shocked and saddened at the insensitivity of Scott Pierceyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter (News May 2). Labelling people â&#x20AC;&#x153;bumsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;hobosâ&#x20AC;? etc. does nothing to solve the growing problem of unemployment and poverty. Rather than calling people names, Mr. Piercey and his friends could help solve these societal challenges volunteering at a shelter or food bank or at an under-funded social service agency. B.C. has the highest rate of child poverty in Canada for the sixth year in a row. No community, not even Oak Bay, is immune to the widening gap between rich and poor. This is a much bigger problem than pan handlers on Oak Bay Avenue and the solution begins with showing some compassion. Lynne Milnes and Joseph Blake Oak Bay

It is not just Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law that causes those most in need of an optical correction to experience the most difďŹ culty getting a quick replacement lens in an emergency situation. Complex, strong or difďŹ cult prescriptions can take longer to make. If you are helpless without your glasses, be prepared for loss or breakage. Whether in the jungle, on safari or on a luxury cruise, the nearest optical lab can be a long way off. Sunglasses are a must if you are headed for a sunny spot. You can slather sunscreen on your skin but it really stings if you try it in your eyes! Sunglasses purchased in Canada will generally provide adequate protection from ultra violet light. If you wear prescription glasses, matching clip-ons, photochromic lenses (glass or plastic) or separate sunglasses are all good options. Polarized lenses are particularly good if you plan to be on or near the water. Contact lens wearers should be especially careful to anticipate problems. If you wear expensive custom made contact lenses, you may balk at the idea of buying a spare pair. Disposable contact lenses might provide tolerable vision in an emergency even if not a precise match for your correction. Discuss this idea with your Optometrist. Contact lens wearers should wear glasses for long airplane ďŹ&#x201A;ights because of the dry air supply. In fact, everyone could beneďŹ t from lubricating drops in these dry conditions. Contact lens wearers should also be aware that some countries have high levels of air pollution and contaminated water supplies so be careful about hygiene. Fastidiously wash your hands before handling your contact lenses. Montezuma can take revenge on your eyes as well as your tummy. Bring your own solutions if you are not sure of their availability at your destination Ask your Optometrist for advice about â&#x20AC;&#x153;back-upâ&#x20AC;? eyewear and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait until the last minute.

Oak Bay Half Marathon welcomes runners for eighth annual event

By Jennifer Blyth

A

new business and an invigorating run through picturesque Oak Bay was all it took to plant the seeds for what has easily become one of the Capital Region’s favourite running events. And this year, as both Peninsula Runners and the Oak Bay Half Marathon celebrate eight years, the race promises to be bigger and better than ever, says race founder and Peninsula Runners owner Dave Milne. With its beautiful scenery and the support of then Oak Bay Mayor Chris Causton, Oak Bay was a natural for the race, Milne recalls. As for the half marathon distance, “at the time, it was the up-and-coming distance. There weren’t many races of that distance available and we wanted to be a little different.” From the beginning, the event has been about partnerships – partnerships with the municipality and residents of

Oak Bay, but also with businesses and groups in the Greater Victoria community. In addition to his own Peninsula Runners, Milne has welcomed 107.3 KOOL FM as the presenting sponsor of the half marathon, 5K and Asics Relay, while the local Help Fill A Dream Foundation presents the Kids 2K Challenge and the new 400 metre Fun Dash. One of Peninsula Runners’ founding business principles is to give back to the community, and as part of that, Milne created the Peninsula Runners Athletic Society, which operates the event. “I made a promise to the council of Oak Bay that I would never make money from the race, and I have stuck to that,” Milne notes. While Peninsula Runners offers a headquarters for race planning and organization, the society ensures event proceeds go to support to both local athletes and local charities, such as the Help Fill A Dream Foundation, the Oak Bay Half Marathon beneficiary which

Peninsula Runners’ popular running event adds a 5K and a Kids 400M Fun Dash to the May 13 half marathon, relay and 2K Kids Run.

supports families with seriously ill children, the BC Cancer Foundation and the Arthritis Society. In addition to financial support, the event offers terrific publicity and the chance for local organizations to get their message out, he adds. The race has also grown each year, from about 300 participants in 2005 to about 2,000 expected this year, Milne says. For runners, the half marathon distance offers a greater challenge than the 10K, but without the extensive training required of a marathon, he explains. “It really doesn’t require that much more training than a 10K. If someone is looking for the next challenge, the half marathon definitely offers that.” For those who may be newer to running, the addition of the 5K distance presented another opportunity to get more people involved. “It offers a way for runners who aren’t ready for a half

marathon to come out and join in the fun,” Milne says, pointing out that by starting at the same time as the half marathon, but taking a different route, the 5K participants will be finished and able to cheer on the half marathoners as they cross the finish line from the longer race. The relay is another way for runners to participate at shorter distances, with four legs ranging from 4.2 to 7km. The half marathon early start gets under way at 7 a.m. Sunday, May 13, with the regular half marathon start, 5K and relay following at 8 a.m. The Kids 2K Challenge for those age 14 and younger begins at 10:30 a.m., with the Kids 400 metre Fun Dash for those nine and younger beginning at 11 a.m. Following the different events, enjoy post-race festivities at the corner of Hampshire Road and Oak Bay Avenue, including food, awards and more.

BAY NEWS

POLICE NEWS IN BRIEF Vehicle break-ins continue Throughout last week, a number of vehicles were broken into with electronics, sunglasses and money the target of thieves. Police

encourage members of the public to ensure their vehicles are locked, and expensive items removed from the vehicle or placed out of sight. Most of the vehicles entered were unlocked.

Home and business crime scenes There were two break and enters in the Oak Bay area last week. A business along Oak Bay Avenue was broken into just after

midnight on May 3. A rock was thrown through the front window and cash was stolen from the cash register. A house in the area of Oak Bay Avenue and York Place was also broken into on April 29,

sometime between 6 and 9 p.m. It appears the culprit entered the home through an unlocked front door and made off with jewelry and a laptop computer. Police encourage homeowners to ensure their doors are

locked when leaving home, even for short periods of time.

Police stop two apparently impaired On May 3 at approximately 1:45 a.m. a patrol officer stopped a motorist in the 2000block of Cadboro Bay Rd. The driver was given a roadside breath test and, as a result, was given a 24-hour driving prohibition for drinking and driving. On May 4 at approximately 9:15 p.m. police received a report of an impaired driver. The driver was subsequently located in the area of Cavendish Avenue. The motorist was given a roadside breath test, however the driver failed to provide a proper sample, and as a result, was given a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

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.*

COMMUNITY NEWS IN BRIEF

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

You may still obtain OAS/GIS at age 65 The age of eligibility for OAS/GIS will change gradually between 2023 and 2029

53 or younger as of March 31, 2012

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 5

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

Bowker Creek not enviro priority in Victoria Victoria will work with Saanich and Oak Bay to see if the municipalities can craft joint development permit guidelines for the Bowker Creek watershed. It’s a move Victoria staff recommended against, mostly because the creek has no open channel within city boundaries, unlike in Saanich and Oak Bay. Victoria’s only concerns in this area relate to stormwater management. “Other shoreline and land-based areas have been identified … as having higher priorities for consideration as environmental development permit areas,” a staff report stated. Victoria council, however, feels the idea is worth exploring and has discussed a pilot project at Doncaster Drive and Hillside Avenue that would daylight that section of Bowker Creek. On Sept. 22, 2011, Victoria council endorsed the Bowker Creek Blueprint, a 100-year plan to restore the watershed.

Style at issue for neighbours Continued from Page A1

“New homes are great, but (they should) blend in with the streetscape and keep the continuity of the character of south Oak Bay,” she said. While Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen said he understands the concerns of the residents, council simply does not have the power to regulate the type of houses being built in the community. “Our Oak Bay bylaws and provincial legislature do not permit council to be arbiters of what is good architecture,” Jensen said. “Once an owner has complied with our building bylaws, they’re free to build what they feel is suitable for their lifestyle and what is pleasing to their eye.” There is a mix of housing types and styles in south Oak Bay, all from multiple decades, which seem to coexist, Jensen said, adding that these more

Knowlton said. The latest development on Monterey Avenue, known as Oak Lanes, replaces a centuryold heritage home that residents say was decrepit. While they knew the house was going to be torn down, none were consulted about the new house being built by developer Method Built Homes. Residents say they received a letter on April 24, a day before demolition of the old heritage house began. The letter, which was dated March 31, warned that demolition of the house would begin “soon.” Knowlton recieved his letter late in the evening of April 24, and by 8 a.m. the next day, the house was being taken down, he said. Three large trees (two birch and one Cedar), all about 18 metres tall, were cut down April 26. reporter@vicnews.com

Hot ticket: Jazz Singer Miranda Sage at Hermann’s, May 12 at 8 p.m. Tickets $18

Miranda Sage has thrived by taking daring leaps into the unknown. Her show Strayhorn, Mancini and Me is a bold venture, bringing a treasure trove of old jazz compositions and new songs to the stage.

Funnyman Fred Penner highlights kids fest Kyle Slavin News staff

Fred Penner, one of Canada’s most celebrated children’s entertainers, committed his life to the world of entertainment when he was just a young man in the early ‘70s after tragedy struck his family. “I had a younger sister, who was a Down syndrome child, she passed away, and a year later my dad died. So in my early 20s I had this intense mortality check and made the decision there and then to attempt to follow my bliss and pursue music as a career,” Penner told the News last week, on the phone from Toronto. Though he had a formal education in economics – a career he says he never would’ve enjoyed – his first serious foray into the industry was with a comedic folk band that played in bars and universities. Penner, who scored a CBC TV show, Fred Penner’s Place in 1985 after half a decade of success writing children’s music, says the core elements of performing with the comedic band – communication,

interaction, participation – continue to help him today. “We’re in an absolutely messed up world. The insanity is complete. The battles that are raging in every corner of this planet are constant,” Penner began, “and the only way, I think, to find a balance in this is through human contact.” That’s why, he said, events like this weekend’s Island Children’s Festival, are important. “What we need to do is really focus on the kids. Because if we make a strong child, if they really understand who they are and how they fit in the global perspective, in the environmental world, how they interact with each other, then we’ll actually have a chance at affecting the next generation,” he said. Penner will headline this Saturday’s Island Children’s Festival at the Island Montessori House School at 5575 W. Saanich Rd. In addition to music, there will also be kids crafts, face painting, children’s yoga, storytelling and a bouncy castle. Penner, who asked that his age not be shared, says he feels like

dren’s entertainment has been watered down by businesses looking to make money, rather than working on a philosophy of putting kids first. “There needs to be a new level of commitment of work for children and families. It’s not just a matter of getting up and singing songs – it’s essential to your understanding of life and how you communicate with people,” Penner said. “Never underestimate your ability to make a difference in the life of a child.” kslavin@saanichnews.com

All Else Fails breaks the rules Socially conscious, lyrically poetic, rife with apocalyptic symbolism, All Else Fails is poised to take the world by storm. Playing an aggressively dark blend of punk, metal and rock, this well-established Edmonton-based band breaks the traditional ideals of its genre by producing music infused with experimental elements, incorporating classical music, electronica influenced synth lines and spoken word sampling. This is metal for a new audience, one that’s ready for what’s beyond the ordinary. On the local circuit via their indie label Suicidal Bride Records, All Else Fails frequently shares the stage with some of Canada’s top touring indie acts such as Ninjaspy, Endast, Quartered, Fattooth, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Submerge the Sky and Without Mercy. Find out what all the buzz is about, as All Else Fails plays with Synapse and Two Years and Counting on May 10 at Logan’s Pub, 1821 Cook Street. The show is at 9:30, tickets are $10.

Wendy Skog says her paintings are about coloured lights, the afterlife and the underworld, sex, violence, and flying objects. In her new show Parade, Energy moving in Space, Scog explores the relationship among a full spectrum of colours and shades in an abstract journey that for each canvas begins with no pre-conceived destination and evolves toward a point of harmony. “My work is a kind of wordless meditation, transforming mind into matter and expressed as energy moving in space,” she says. “The paintings are an expression of the spirit, energy, confusion, surprise, excitement, tragedy, unpredictability, drama and innocence we have collectively experienced through lifetimes.” The work draws from the vulnerabil-

ity and consciousness gained through these experiences, she says. “As an abstract painter I am attracted to the dark, deep, rich colours of wine, purple night-skies, the dull opaques of asphalt under streetlamps or west coast skies, the blacks of stovepipes and telephones, the warm orange-reds of a wood-fire. … I enjoy round, oval elliptical, soft female shapes and linear, structural, geometric, architectural hard shapes.” Influenced by the New York school of painters, her organic abstract forms are rendered in a painter’s minimalists approach.

Practice is nearly underway at Central Park’s ball diamond when Maddy Creasey begins backing a 1990s gold sedan into a parking spot. After a few re-adjustments of the car’s angle, a second attempt, and the guidance of a parent on foot, 18-year-old Creasey accomplishes parallel parking success on Vancouver Street. “Practice is almost over, are you parked yet?” quips a coach.

The Elk Lake-based rowing club had 10 first-place finishes, ahead of incumbent champion Sammamish Rowing Club of Seattle. Hosts Brentwood College finished fifth. “I am really excited to see the strong showing for all levels of athletes which

still remain on the squad. Of those seven, Mackenzie Smith and Sarah Chow go back even further, coming from Layritz Little League, where they were first coached by the Devils bench boss Bruce Lubinich. “It’s the last year together as a minor ball team and it’s been a lot of fun, seven years worth of ‘a lot of fun,” Lubinich said. During the team’s run it has finished second at the provincial championships three separate times, going on to finish third, fourth and ninth at the 2008, ’10 and ’11 national championships, respectively. To say the team is due to win at B.C.s is an understatement. So with great excitement, the team is hosting this year’s U18 provincials, July 27 to 29. “Last year at nationals we were a firstyear (midget) team. We have that experience on our side now.” The top two or three teams from B.C.s (yet to be decided by Softball Canada) will advance to the nationals in Montreal this summer. But that’s a long ways away. Two weekends ago the Devils opened the season at the Softball City spring range from novice to varsity crews,” said head coach Albert Van Shothorst. “Year after year this club has been improving and this time we displayed the skill to push through in the last 250 metres of the race where we used to get passed.”

Up 6-0 in the tournament final, the Devils looked to have the tourney in the bag. “The wheels fell off,” Lubinich said. “But that’s why you play these games early in the season. It’s good to get those out of the way.” The Devils are the only minor team playing senior baseball in the VictoriaSaanich Women’s Softball Association this season out of Hyacinth Park. The next midget tournament for the Devils is the Renegades Canadian Pride and Power, May 19 to 21 in Surrey.

The James Bay Athletic Association is in, and the Castaway Wanderers are out. James Bay narrowly edged Burnaby Lake 23-21 in the CDI Premier League semifinal playoff at MacDonald Park on Saturday (May 5). At the same time, Capilano was too much for the Castaway Wanderers in the other semifinal, played at Windsor Park in Oak Bay. The Caps were the hungrier side, defeating CW 34-22. It sets up a Rounsefell Cup between the Bays and Caps at Klahanie Park in North Vancouver on Saturday (May 12), the first time James Bay has played for the B.C. championship since 2009. “Capilano looks like they could give the Bays a good run,” said Chris May of CW’s coaching platoon. “We made a lot of mistakes, gave away too much possession and (the Caps) capitalized on them.” If there was a scapegoat for CW’s troubles it was the lineouts.

Carnation campaign raises funds, awareness for MS

Jennifer Blyth Around Town

A

s Mother’s Day weekend approaches, local volunteers and supporters are set to don their carnations for the annual Carnation Campaign for the MS Society of Canada. The carnation is Canada’s oldest and mostrecognized symbol of the quest to end multiple sclerosis, and volunteers here in Victoria will join those in more than 280 communities across Canada May 10 to 12, selling carnations in support of MS research and services. Because women are diagnosed with MS three times as often as men, the timing of the campaign resonates with volunteers and the community – many of those living with MS are mothers, while others have mothers affected by this disease. Launched in 1975, the Carnation Campaign has raised more than $45 million since its inception – equal to nine million bouquets of flowers or 27 million individual stems For more information, visit mssociety.ca Victoria’s Sikh Temple marks centennial The Victoria Sikh Temple is turning 100 this month and the local Sikh community has planned a week of celebrations worthy of the centennial.

Investigation continues into fatality Erin McCracken

son,” Caroll Taiji, the company’s communications consultant, said of the 35-year-old victim, who was originally from Nanaimo. He had worked for the company in Victoria for more than three years. “It’s really devastating for them,” Taiji said. “This company in that location has existed and operated for over 50 years. They have never had a fatality, so there’s a huge amount of shock.” The man was killed in an area of the yard where finer materials are separated from crushed automobiles, Taiji explained. “The worker was caught in the machinery somehow and fatally injured,” confirmed

News staff

Operations at Steel Pacific Recycling in Victoria were scaled back Monday following the workplace death of an employee on Saturday afternoon. Investigators with WorkSafeBC and the company’s accident investigation team were at the yard in Victoria’s Rock Bay district Monday, while grief counsellors, a critical incident team and company officials met with about 25 yard employees at an offsite location. “They’re a close-knit team and this was a well-liked per-

WorkSafeBC spokesperson Megan Johnston. WorkSafeBC declined to release additional details on the cause of death until its investigation wraps up. Once the B.C. Coroners Service receives WorkSafeBC’s final report, the coroners team will decide whether health and safety practices in B.C.’s steel recycling industry warrant a closer look to prevent future deaths in similar circumstances, said Victoria Barb McLintock with the B.C. Coroners Service. The company was quick to note that the worker’s death was not caused by a shredder, despite initial reports.

“In fact, the shredding machine is decommissioned and it’s been closed for over a year, so it hasn’t even been functioning,” Taiji said. Lessons that can be learned from this tragedy will be shared company-wide, she said. “Anything that can be gleaned and learned and shared, will be.” Company officials could not say Monday when the Victoria operation would re-open for business. “The management team is very focused on not restoring operations until people are absolutely ready,” Taiji said. “The main focus is the family and the co-workers.” emccracken@vicnews.com Advertising Feature

Proven formulas for those fed-up with the rat race

How Average Canadians Are Creating and Protecting Their Wealth...

Do you believe one person has the same chance of being wealthy as the next? Or do you honestly think that most people who end up rich, got that way because of special circumstances?

waiting for things to “turn around”.

My name is Darren Weeks and I know from the bottom of my heart that everyone has the same chance. I am an average Joe. I grew up in a middle class family. I had no special breaks, and didn’t know any famous people who gave me my start. I definitely didn’t win any lottery.

One of my star students was a tradesperson who was fed up with trying to make ends meet every month. Rob Chaulk was a hard worker that knew his job wasn’t going to make life any easier. He also dabbled in some businesses along the way in the restaurant and towing business.

But I have done very well for my age... ...and I have shown thousands of Canadians how to copy my formula for financial independence. My company, the Fast Track Group, has been ranked among Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies for two straight years now. Last year, we finished 40th on PROFIT Magazine’s list. In 10 years, I have taken it from 5 employees in one tiny office, to over 100 employees and 12 offices. More than 350,000 Canadians have

No, they took action and realized that... ...turbulent times like this are where most of the wealthiest 1% made their biggest gains.

But he didn’t become financially independent until he mastered the money game. I was fortunate enough to be the one who showed him how. He has quit the trades, and now owns multiple businesses and has millions of dollars in cash-flow-positive real estate properties. One simple shift in the way he thought about money, a solid action plan to move forward, and he now never again needs to worry about money or paying bills. I personally grew up in a middle class family with no special advantages or opportunities. The difference for me though was a significant desire to be and have more. It wasn’t about all the fancy toys... for me it was about putting an end to the time for money trap I saw everyone else falling for. It was about seeing more of the world. It was about raising a young family in an environment that was positive about money, and the opportunities abound that created more money for those with initiative. I immersed myself in the “Rich Dad” philosophies, and ultimately worked directly with Robert Kiyosaki to teach Canadian’s these same philosophies and how to take control of their financial future. I began investing in real estate. I started up businesses that supported my new money mindset. I tried to find others in Canada who I could talk to about this drive I had.

“The difference for me though was a significant desire to be more and have more.” Darren Weeks

now attended Fast Track events. All our success has enabled us to support people that inspire us. The Fast Track Group is the title sponsor of Canada’s Luge team and we support them to the tune of over $1 million. On top of providing FREE financial education to all Canadians, my company is able to offer better returns and tax savings to our investors thanks to our partnerships with multinational Companies. All this growth has put me in the spotlight – I’m a contributor for Canadian Real Estate Magazine and made countless TV appearances on stations such as BNN, CTV and City TV. It’s been a heck of a ride. Now it’s time to teach you how I did it, and how you can do it too! My greatest pride in all of this? Seeing my clients, students and peers succeeding and thriving in the current economy. They didn’t listen to the masses and lock themselves up in a dark basement, while

It was difficult to find people who thought about money like I did... Don’t get me wrong, there were lots of successful Canadians out there, but I found it difficult to get them to sit with me and talk one-on-one about their own strategies for wealth creation. So I sought out those who wanted greater wealth in their own life. Then I systematized what I had personally done to create wealth, and shared it with them for their own personal use. Those who had the drive to follow my system, ended up making millions. They became friends. They became peers. They became my inner circle mastermind partners. And they encouraged me to take my system bigger and share it with more people in Canada. So I did. I have spoken to thousands of people from every corner of our great country. I shared with them my formula for creating wealth, starting from nothing, or starting with a solid base. My system worked for those who applied it. I travelled far too much and started to burn myself out. I stopped traveling and started leveraging. I built a team of 100 of the most passionate

people in the country. They helped me get my message out to those who wanted out of the rat race. We pulled in our best students and success stories, and had them share their own examples on the road. The best part? My STAR student will pass on the knowledge to you. The formula that I taught continued to work for others who I had never personally taught. My system worked for anyone who understood it and applied it, whether or not I taught it to them directly or through my students. Is it your turn to master the money mindset? ...Most people are broke, and will stay that way for the rest of their life. My company has organized an event coming up in your city and we would like you to join us. There is no cost to attend, but you do need to commit to being there. My team is here to make sure you get the tools you need for creating the independence you crave.

Each one of my wealthiest students and clients started off at a free event just like this. They heard about an event just like this put on by my company. They attended and absorbed every ounce of information shared, and took MASSIVE ACTION. Each of them is now financially independent and able to live life on their own terms. What should you do next?

Find one or more friends or family members who want out of the rat race like you do... and get them a seat booked as well.

*Darren Weeks is not always the presenter at Fast Track events

If we were to try to categorize Jim Douglas by his accomplishments, these pages would be easily filled. He was a man who supported himself and his family through his devotion to the motorcycle industry, an entrepreneur having owned his own business and a rider and racer. Helping others was his main criteria. Working with Bernie Simpson in the Nineteen Seventies at Mullins Marine Jim would recount how Bernie would sell the motorcycle to the customer “then I would take them to the parking lot and run alongside while teaching them how to ride”. A little different than returning to work at SG in 2006 where Jim worked parts and accessories. A true ambassador of two wheels, in the nineteen eighties Jim opened his own dirtbike shop, selling a new brand of competition bike, a shop where he would magically pull the part you needed from the back or mount your knobby tire for next to nothing just to spend time with you and get to know you. His Dad who also rode would usually be found hanging out at the shop talking about bikes. A favourite story of Jim, was how he tried to join a motorcycle club in the late nineteen sixties only to be denied for having long hair, even though it barely touched his shirt collar. It made him laugh at the differences between the past and the present. Regardless of the era though if you were lucky enough to deal with Jim you could be assured he would offer you old-fashioned, patient, honest and genuine customer service. Mr. Douglas lived life with his heart, he knew no other way, he was a beacon in time and will truly be missed.
