Haitian orphanage ready to help PST return lets business pay online Langford officials, volunteers celebrate after long road Kyle Wells Tom Fletcher

News staff

Black Press

After all the fundraising, all the volunteer work, all the trips, all the tragedy, tears and sweat, the Haitian orphanage that the City of Langford vowed to rebuild two years ago is complete. It’s now open and once again helping some of the hardest-luck people in a hard-luck country. On April 29, most of the major players involved in the project, including Langford Mayor Stew Young and fire Chief Bob Beckett, gathered in Meyotte, Haiti, to celebrate the completion and opening of the orphanage. About 200 people gathered for the celebration, which included speeches from the project leaders, performances by some of the children in the orphanage and even a cake, which Young served. About 40 children are back in a sound facility that, from all accounts, is far better than what they had before the earthquake. “Everybody was pretty excited,� said Young. “It’s as good a building as you’ll ever see in Haiti, I can tell you.� The original orphanage was destroyed in the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit the nation in 2010, killing thousands (the exact death toll is not known) and leaving just as many homeless.

We’re speechless.

The B.C. government has tabled its longawaited legislation to kill the harmonized sales tax and return to the old provincial sales tax, with some modernization to make it easier for small businesses to administer and pay the tax. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said Monday the PST will return as scheduled in April 2013, with exemptions for haircuts, restaurant meals, bicycles, movie tickets, gym memberships and all the other rules it had before. The only sales tax breaks that won’t return Kevin Falcon are temporary exemptions that would have expired by now, including energy-conserving windows and appliances, and fuel-efficient cars. Tax changes that were made along with the HST will be maintained. That includes a 12-per-cent provincial tax on privately sold used cars, making the tax equal to that paid at a car dealership. Provincial tobacco taxes were increased seven per cent when the HST came in, and that tax will continue. Liquor taxes will also be adjusted to keep retail prices the same as they are now. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston said the legislation is relatively simple, with regulations listing the many rules and exemptions still to come this fall so businesses can prepare for next spring.

Saanich to decide on dispatching View Royal, Colwood calls Saanich council was expected to vote Monday on two new contracts that would see Saanich fire dispatchers answer View Royal and Colwood calls. In January, it was announced the Saanich Fire Department had struck five-year deals with both municipalities. View Royal and Colwood issued separate requests for proposals last fall, as they were both dissatisfied with the level of service provided by the Langford dispatch centre. Saanich already answers fire calls from residents in Saanich, Oak Bay, Esquimalt, North Saanich, Central Saanich and Sidney. If approved by council, Saanich’s dispatch service will cost Colwood $76,332 this year, and will rise roughly $3,000 per year until 2017. View Royal will pay $54,584 this year, and the cost will jump roughly $2,000 a year until 2017. kslavin@saanichnews.com

A group of Royal Roads University students was so impressed with Metchosin’s disaster management programs, they nominated the municipality for a United Nations designation as a disaster-resilient community that can serve as a role model to other cities around the world.

View Royal passes modest 3.58% tax increase Kyle Wells News staff

They had to dip into rainy-day money, but Town of View Royal councillors have adopted a fiveyear financial plan that includes a 3.58 per cent increase in property taxes for 2012. For the average valued home – $558,459 – the increase works out to $1,313, or about $45 more than last year’s municipal tax bill.

This is lower than the 4.58 per cent rise in property taxes in 2011, but still above the rate of inflation, which for Canada in 2011 averaged at 2.9 per cent. Councillor John Rogers said that when you compare the increase to other communities proportionally, it’s at an acceptable level. None of the cuts made to keep the tax rate low particularly concerned Rogers, but he would like to have seen the project to put a sidewalk on Burnett Road go ahead. “(Finalizing the budget) was an arduous process that we’d gone through and there were many things that we were faced with,”

Mattson concerned over long-term impact to town

Kyle’s

Rogers said, “but we did make significant enough cuts to bring it down to a reasonable level.” As the only councillor who voted against the motion, Ron Mattson said he has concerns over the budget’s use of nearly $300,000 in surplus funds to help keep taxes down. He believes they have merely delayed dealing with spending issues, and that residents could be faced with a sizable tax increase in 2013. “We’ve taken money out that isn’t replaceable. We make the increase look a lot better than it is because we’ve taken one-time money and put it in, but it’s all

going to show up next year.” Mattson believes that View Royal spends too much on unnecessary projects and that a planned audit of money already being spent needs to go ahead. With a potential 12 per cent budget increase to pay for the new fire hall, as well as six per cent to cover the $300,000 coming out of surplus this year, Mattson is concerned council will be facing an 18 per cent increase next year even without any additional expenses or capitol projects. “It’s not looking very pretty for next year,” Mattson said. news@goldstreamgazette.com

We’re talking bull riding, steer wrestling, mutton Kyle Wells bustin’ (I don’t know News staff what that is, but I like the sounds of it) and, of course, rodeo clowns.

This is the guy behind Borat and Bruno and while he’s not always my favourite The Dictator looks seriously funny. Opening this weekend is Battleship, staring B.C.’s own Tim Riggins – er, I mean, Taylor Kitsch. It looks a little haywire, but with Friday Night Lights creator Peter Berg at the helm (pun intended) it could rise above its lackluster trailer.

Buzz grows around beginner beekeeping Regional beekeeper club establishes hotline to report bee swarms Erin McCracken News staff

It’s not that Barry Denluck goes looking for trouble when he sticks his hands in a ball of bees. But when his cellphone rings, he’s prepared to do just that. “Why would I be scared of bees? I like bees,” says the View Royal resident and part-time beekeeper. He has responded to and collected swarms of bees – wearing appropriate beekeeper apparel – but hopes to hear from more people who spot clouds of 10,000-plus honey bees this summer. The Capital Region Beekeepers Association has established a dedicated bee swarm hotline. Denluck, the association copresident, expects his phone could ring at anytime now that the warm weather has arrived, and bees are starting to depart overcrowded hives in a massive swarm to look for new accommodation. “The general public doesn’t like 10,000 stinging insects sitting by their front door or sitting on their lilac bush,” he says. He and seven other beekeepers, stationed from Sooke to Sidney, are ready to mobilize and scoop up these swarms and deliver them – typically in a box – to some of the 20 aspiring beekeepers, who have recently joined the association and need bees. “It’s important that more people become beekeepers,” Denluck says.

Erin McCracken/News staff

View Royal resident and beekeeper Barry Denluck shows off some of his honey bees. As co-president of the Capital Region Beekeepers Association, Denluck urges anyone who sees a swarm of thousands of bees, more likely to happen with the arrival of warm weather, to call the new swarm hotline 250-900-5133. Starting new hives with local bees allows beekeepers to foster a sustainable population of honey bees in Canada. Many beekeepers import bees from international destinations, such as Hawaii, a prominent honey bee supplier.

“The thought is that with many urban beekeepers, as well as just a few large commercial beekeepers, we can maintain a greater genetic diversity,” Denluck explains. This is especially important with the 30-per-cent decline in North America’s

honey bee population, he says, noting that bee populations are jeopardized primarily by human encroachment and pesticides. Denluck is confident that the new bee swarm hotline will, in a way, help build a stronger bee community. Last year, the club learned of about 20 swarms, though Denluck estimates there are likely up to 100 swarms each year (in the region). The bees from Jill Illington’s backyard hives have tried leaving twice, due to overcrowding. “In both cases there were good lessons for us,” the Victoria West resident says. Luckily, Illington’s bees didn’t get far, and she ensured the buzzing insects settled back into a roomier hive. Swarms typically attract a lot of attention in urban areas. Last year, word spread about a bee cloud that landed on a Douglas Street lamppost and another that rested on a car at the Tillicum Centre. “This swarm, this cloud, can be as large as a house and as long as a bus,” Denluck says. “So you’re going to see it and hear it a block away.” The honey-makers will leave their home and stop over someplace for as little as two hours and as long as a day, while waiting for the scouts to fly off and find a new home. With such a small window of opportunity in which the beekeepers can collect the swarm, it’s important for people to immediately call the hotline. “Timing is critical,” Denluck says. To report a swarm, call the bee swarm line at 250-900-5133, or email swarms@victoriabeekeepers.com. For details, visit victoriabeekeepers.ca. emccracken@vicnews.com

Double Vision The sudden onset of double vision is a frightening experience. Double vision occurs when the two eyes don’t point at the same object. Each eye sends an image to the brain which attempts to superimpose the two images. When this works we have depth perception, when it doesn’t we have “diplopia” or double vision. Some people experience occasional diplopia when they are tired or taking certain medications. This occurs because the central control of the muscles used to align the eyes is compromised. This condition, while a nuisance, disappears when the cause is remedied. Sometimes diplopia occurs for no apparent reason. Possible causes include a stroke, a tumor, diabetes or multiple sclerosis. It is important to have a medical evaluation to ensure nothing untoward has occurred. Often normal vision returns gradually. Spectacles with prism can be helpful in aligning the images until the diplopia has resolved or stabilized. If you suffer from double vision, be sure to have a thorough examination by an optometrist regularly.

Highlanders spring clean on roadways

UVic Alumni Association Annual General Meeting featuring LAFAYETTE STRING QUARTET Artists-in-Residence | UVic School of Music

Annual event has relied on same volunteers for 15 years Charla Huber News staff

After gathering for breakfast, 15 Highlands residents hit the road to clean up after other people. They started around 9 a.m., May 5, and some were still cleaning up roadside waste at 3 p.m. “We had tires, car parts and batteries,” said Highlands Coun. Marcie McLean, who worked a bit longer picking up items too heavy for the volunteers to haul. McLean has been organizing the event for several years. Other than the fast food and coffee cups strewn along the roads, McLean says cigarette butts are her biggest frustration. “I don’t know why they do it. Some of the newer car (manufactures) have stopped building slide-out ashtrays,” McLean said, noting the fire risk that only gets worse as warmer weather dries out the forest. The annual Highlands clean-up has been around since the the mid 1980s. “You never know what you are going to find,” said Mayor Jane Mendum. “Nothing should ever come out of a vehicle.” The volunteers focussed on the main roads in the district, including Millstream, Millstream Lake, Finlayson Arm, Ross Durance and Munn Road. By the end of the day, a 12-foot-long bin was half full with collected trash. “We have had years when (the garbage) was at the top of the bin,” McLean said. Many of the same volunteers have been working on the clean-up year-after-year and are much appreciated, McLean said. “We need to get some new residents to come out next year,” she said. reporter@goldstreamgazette.com

Langford helps Haiti rebuild Continued from Page A1

Two years ago, Langford decided it needed to help out and chose this project. Since then, staff from the fire department and the municipality, along with volunteers from the community, have paid their own way to Haiti to help put up a new building, install a municipal water line and tank, rebuild a security wall, repair latrines and dig a new well. To pay for the materials and to hire U.S.-based Shelter2Homes to carry out construction, Langford raised about $250,000 from the community and partners, including Chinese and Italian agencies connected to the United Nations. “Every dollar goes (to the orphanage). You pay your own way down if you’re going to go. You volunteer. So every dollar got spent on the project,” Beckett said. “What a model for other communities in Canada to emulate.” During the ceremony, the orphanage was dedicated to two RCMP officers who died in Haiti during the earthquake: Sgt. Mark Gallagher and Supt. Doug Coates. Gallagher’s daughter and Coates’ son attended and spoke at the ceremony. “It was a very, very moving ceremony,” Beckett said. “There wasn’t a dry eye at times in the room, both because of the excitement but also because of recognizing there was a lot of tragedy, and personal tragedy for Canadians as well.”

Young and Beckett agreed that one of the most noticeable features of Haiti right now is the lack of government structure. There are very few police around and virtually nothing in the way of local government agencies on the ground helping people. Despite the lack of structure, and recognizing that violence and crime are present in certain areas, the Canadians who made the trip said they were still impressed by how people are coming together and helping each other to create order and rebuild. “This is the life they live and they know that’s what they’ve been dealt and they try and make the best of it,” said Young. “The people have found a way to exist, survive and help each other.” Even now that the project is complete, Young is determined to raise $7,000 per year through the fire department to continue to pay for administration and any incidentals. Members of the fire department plan to go down once a year to check on things, make necessary repairs and continue the connection to the orphanage and its people. There is also talk of taking on a new project. “If people from other areas didn’t lend money or help, this would be a really bad, serious situation,” said Young. “Without that help coming in, that place probably would be one of the most destitute places in the world.” news@goldstreamgazette.com

PST rules announced for HST phase out Continued from Page A1

“I think they could have done it faster and they should have done it faster,” Ralston said. The government expects to save about $9 million a year in administration costs by using a new online registration and payment system for business, which B.C. expects to administer with about 100 fewer staff. Businesses will have to set up their computers to comply, with software expected to cost them about $1,000. Low-income families will give up a $230-perperson rebate that was introduced to offset the higher costs of HST to consumers, including children. As of April 2013, the PST rebate will resume,

OUR VIEW

Remove veil from public land sales Last week two Victoria city councillors hosted a forum on selling public land to help highlight decisions coming down the pipeline – the potential sale of industrial property surrounding the Point Hope Shipyard and land near the Northern Junk building. Councillors Ben Isitt and Shellie Gudgeon asked the question: what degree of disclosure and consultation is appropriate? When it comes to real-estate deals, transparency should trump secrecy when it comes to managing public assets. Ralmax Group of Companies, owner of Point Hope Shipyard and United Engineering, is interested in buying a number of city lots it currently leases, to help provide certainty for expansion plans along Harbour Road. This proposal makes economic sense and there is no reason why Victoria shouldn’t consider the offer. But at the same time, the city needs to find a mechanism to keep its citizens in the loop – that such proposals exist shouldn’t be the result of rebellious city councillors using process to release the information to the public. Land sales are usually wrapped in secrecy (discussed behind closed doors) until the deal is done, allowing little or no public input on disposing of public land. The recent provincial proposal to sell Provincial Capital Commission land highlights the arrogance of playing fast and loose with public property. After its last budget, the government announced it would sell an undisclosed number of PCC properties, which range from parking lots and prized downtown buildings, to blocks of forest on the Trans-Canada Highway approach into the city. There wasn’t a whiff of public process in the decision. Once public land is sold, it’s expensive and difficult to acquire other land, especially in the Capital Region. View Royal, for instance, paid more than $2 million for 2.4 acres of land for a new fire hall.

Abusers are likely to have been victims of abuse, and a big percentage of those who are cruel to animals are cruel to people. In a four-year Canadian experiment during the 1970s, poor families that received a guaranteed income supplement showed an increased number of high-school graduations and fewer medical visits for accidents, injuries, and mental-health problems. So the Canadian Council of Welfare reported. My hunch is that a larger and longer family-income experiment would yield a moneysaving reduction of many social ills, including reckless teen driving and violence toward people and animals. Kennedy Stewart, NDP MP for Burnaby-Douglas, wants the Harper government to remove animal cruelty from the property section of the Criminal Code, strengthen federal cruelty law, and recognize animals as beings that can feel pain. Stewart is a Simon Fraser University policy analyst. Prime Minister Harper would be smart to follow his advice. I find this a comfortable hope as I go upstairs to read and take a siesta.

LETTERS Motion detectors would stop dumpers I read your article “Metchosin residents sick of being dumped on” (Goldstream News Gazette, May 9) Great job, by the way! I would like to add to this article by suggesting the use of motion cameras positioned in the areas that are being used as a dumping ground. The same type of motion cameras are used by wildlife experts to catch animals in the wild. A person who comes by and dumps garbage will trigger the camera and – presto – a picture is worth a thousand words. That picture will mean the person(s) will be caught. Word will get out and dumping will decrease. People will be motivated to take their refuse to the dump. The cost of sending out crews and equipment will decrease. A small cost for a motion camera and a big payoff. A great follow up story might deter more dumping and motivate better behaviour. My two cents (oh, the penny is going I will have to find another phrase. My two nickels does not sound right). Robert Fisher Langford

Commission should speak with bus drivers Re: Timing is right for transit study (Our view, May 11) With the Greater Victoria transit commission set to study five high-traffic-volume sections – with an eye to making them more efficient – I wonder if they will speak with the people who deal with what is and has been going on for years, the men and women who drive the transit vehicles. Believe me they do empathize with their passengers. Joe Hronek Colwood

More information needed for fire hall Re. Firehall estimated to cost $8 million, May 9) Being a resident of View Royal, I have not received enough information about paying for the new fire hall. More information about raising property taxes is needed. Residents who do not approve of the loan of $8 million have until July 11 to submit a form that is being mailed out – 770 forms are need to force a referendum, so I encourage resi-

dent to force city hall to provide more information about alternatives. Remember they say its $130 a year for 25 years on our taxes. Let’s get more information. Stephen Nordquist View Royal

Explanation of higher rates hard to believe It was nice to have a thank you for smart meter patience

from B.C. Hydro. But, I had to laugh about their usual excuses about higher rates. The classic one is “It’s been a cold winter.” According to the weather bureau, it has been the warmest winter for many years. So who is fibbing here? I know some people who say they have been in Florida for the winter but come home to a big B.C. Hydro bill. Paul Collins Langford

Ferry fleet sails into a storm T

he B.C. government has rolled out its plan to reform B.C. Ferries, continuing the structural and cultural shift that started when the Crown corporation was quasi-privatized in the early years of B.C. Liberal rule. Politically, there is a lot at stake here. Premier Christy Clark’s year-long “families first” routine boils down to two projects, reining in rate increases at B.C. Hydro and B.C. Ferries. For weeks, Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom has been signaling there is bad news to come. Sparring with the NDP in question period, he has bluntly and repeatedly said the days of fully staffed vessels sailing with a third (or less) of their capacity are coming to an end. Tabling legislation to give the ferry commissioner new powers over service levels as well as fares, Lekstrom revealed $80 million worth of sugar to help the tough Tom Fletcher medicine go down over the next four years. B.C. Views That’s on top of the $150 million annual subsidy. Quadra Island politician Jim Abram was first out with the predictable view of the Gulf Islands elite, dismissing this sum as paltry. It’s difficult to capture how self-centred and insulting this is, but I’ll try. Consider that the B.C. transportation ministry spent $460 million last year on highway operations. That’s for the province’s entire vast, weather-battered road network. This year’s operating subsidy to coastal ferries is approaching $200 million, nearly half of that. And increasingly, it goes to subsidize getaways for those who choose isolation for its own sake. Basic financial information also exposes the falsity of NDP ferry critic Garry Coons’ one-note critique. It’s part of the highway system, he constantly says, comparing empty ferries with empty roads while ignoring the mandatory ferry staff and other costs.

This fiscal-fantasy policy implies another huge increase in subsidy, much of it a transfer from working people to the idle rich who can afford Gulf Islands real estate. Coons can’t say how much, probably because he has no idea. A key legislative change will allow B.C. Ferries to use revenues from its profitable main routes to subsidize little-used runs. This would be even more important if those revenues hadn’t been squandered. And no, I’m not talking about the “fast ferries.” The story is detailed in Head On!, a 2004 book by former B.C. deputy highways minister R.G. Harvey. He describes how the Mike Harcourt government completed the “gross error” of building a new terminal at Duke Point, near Nanaimo. This run was to take truck and other traffic from congested Horseshoe Bay to the mid-Island from Tsawwassen. An alternative route from Richmond to Gabriola Island, with bridges to Vancouver Island, had been quietly scuttled after the W.A.C. Bennett government was defeated by the NDP’s Dave Barrett in 1972. On a map, it’s clear this would have been the shortest route. Harvey says it would have cut travel time by half, and likely replaced the congested Horseshoe Bay dock. But Barrett would have had to tell his Nanaimo ferry union supporters that they were losing half their work hours. Tsawwassen to Duke Point is 65 km, compared to 54 km from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay. A ferry worker’s shift includes two round trips and loading time. On the Duke Point run this meant at least eight and a half hours, “thus ensuring the crew at least one hour at double time daily and often more,” Harvey writes. “Later it became a scheduled overtime route.” Something to keep in mind as Adrian Dix and his crew of union bosses prepare to take the helm. tfletcher@blackpress.ca – Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

Ferry review to add cash, cut sailings on major routes Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government is giving B.C. Ferries an extra $79.5 million over the next four years, and looking for another $45 million in operational savings to bring rate increases down to the rate of inflation over that time. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom said the inflation

goal will not be met immediately, even with most of the extra money up front. The government's price cap of 4.15 per cent increases for all routes remains in place for this year, and B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee will set increases for the next three years after consultation with coastal communities. B.C. Ferries CEO Mike Corrigan said the corporation expects to cut at least 100 sailings on its major Vancouver Island routes, with low-ridership sailings late in the evening the likely target. Corrigan said he is confident reductions can save $30 million over the next four years, and another $15 million in efficiencies can be found within the corporation's $750 million budget. Premier Christy Clark said the legislative changes and extra subsidy are designed to meet her commitment to keep fare increases under control, despite declining ridership.

“People are just not spending the kind of money travelling that they used to,” Clark said. Lekstrom said the legislative changes will be passed by the end of the spring session May 31. They offer new authority to the ferry commissioner to approve service level changes, and also allow B.C. Ferries to use revenues from its busy major routes to subsidize lower-volume runs. NDP ferry critic Gary Coons described the changes as “incremental steps in the right direction.” Coons said the ban on cross-subsidization of routes was a mistake that drove steep increases on the smaller routes. Lekstrom said the consultation on changes will begin as quickly as possible, to find out what trade-offs people are prepared to make, such as paying more to retain sailings that are not sustainable now. Corrigan said longer-term strategies may include modifying ferry docks so they can accommodate more kinds of vessels, and making ferry reservations free so the corporation has a better idea of its passenger and vehicle loads and can plan sailings accordingly.

Hot ticket: Shirley Valentine at the McPherson Playhouse Tickets $54.75.

Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre presents Shirley Valentine starring Nicola Cavendish at the McPherson Playhouse May 15 to 19, at 8 p.m. May 19 and 20, at 2 p.m.

Big band conductor shares wealth of life experience Musician Robin Bannister gives back to community through music Brittany Lee News staff

Standing in front of fellow members of the Swiftsure Big Band, long-time musician Robin Bannister waves his index finger in the air. “A one, two, one, two, three, four,” Bannister chimes, leading the 18-member band into its first song during the regular Tuesday night rehearsal. The music room at St. Michaels University School fills with the sounds of woodwind instruments, drums, a cello and piano. Bannister, who’s been with the band for eight years, takes a seat inbetween his fellow saxophone players and joins in. The Sidney resident, who is in his early-70s, has more than five decades of experience in the music industry. He started playing music when he was a “youngster” in his junior high school band in the 1950s.

“I enjoyed being with a young group of people,” Bannister says. Playing in a band gave him the inspiration to consider getting into music as a career, he adds. In 1957, the Moose Jaw, Sask. native came to Victoria to attend the Royal Canadian Navy School of Music. After graduating, Bannister played clarinet and saxophone for the Naden Band, the Canadian Forces naval band in Esquimalt. For 20 years, he travelled and toured Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan with the naval band, playing at various fairs and expos. Bannister also led smaller entertainment groups, performing at isolated Canadian Forces bases throughout Canada and Europe. He then enrolled at the University of British Columbia in 1977 and received his teaching certificate. He taught choir and vocal jazz at secondary schools throughout B.C. for 11 years. “I enjoyed working with young people,” he says, adding that it was, however, a challenge. Trying to inspire his students and introduce them to a different way of life was his biggest challenge, he says. By sharing his experiences with his students and trying to act as a

Saxophonist Robin Bannister conducts and plays with the Swiftsure Big Band and the Sidney Concert Band. role model to them, he attempted to get them enthusiastic about music, he explains. “I was fortunate to go into schools that had (music) programs that needed inspiration.”

His goal was “to get kids to get a taste of what music can provide” in their lives. At age 55, Bannister took a hiatus from teaching and soon returned to being a full-time musician with the Canadian Forces Air Command Band in Winnipeg until he retired in 1993. Bannister continues to stay involved with music. Besides conducting and playing with the Swiftsure Big Band, he is also the musical director and conductor of the Sidney Concert Band. Under the direction of the Regional Cadet Music Supervisor, Bannister also continues to teach more than 600 kids. Although Bannister has always loved music, he says he especially enjoys it now. Playing with musicians his own age, and who have shared experiences, everyone has fun, he explains. The Swiftsure Big Band includes both hobby and professional musicians, with players as old as 90. It’s that “mingling of generations” that Bannister loves, and the opportunity to give back to the community. “We create music, perform, and hopefully do some good,” he says. reporter@vicnews.com

HAVEaHEART

Experience world music beat Acoustic world music duo Nomad returns to Victoria this week. Nomad is Kinobe, a young Ugandan master of the 26-string African harp known as the Kora, and Michael Waters, a Victoria-based virtuoso guitarist. The duo met in Uganda in 2006 and have mounted 10 tours in Canada, the U.S., and Europe since then. Their unique blend of styles creates a powerful roots sound covering afro-roots, world eclectic and acoustic chill. Kinobe has been playing music since the age of five, and began touring with an African ensemble when he was just 10. Based in Kampala, he has travelled around Africa playing with musicians steeped in tribal, traditional styles. His fascination with the Kora came from hearing the Mali virtuoso Toumani Diabate play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as I heard him play, I knew this was the instrument I would go deepest with,â&#x20AC;? said Kinobe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though it is not a traditional instrument from my country, it still speaks to me of the land and people.â&#x20AC;? Kinobe also plays the kalimba (thumb piano) and percussion instruments in his shows. Waters has grown a strong west coast following through performances in churches and theatres over the last five years. After 33 years playing guitar as a spiritual practice, his 2004 encounter with the medicine Submitted photo traditions of the Amazon triggered a shift African harpist Kinobe returns to Victoria with in his approach to music and a decision Michael Waters this week. to begin performing publicly. He combines soaring guitar virtuosity and a new genre known as acoustic psychedelic chill.

From farm-fresh asparagus to tart and tangy rhubarb, the flavours of the Capital Region are providing plenty of culinary inspiration, not to mention support for local farmers, notes the Red Barn Markets’ Russ Benwell. Looking ahead, sunnier days bring the promise of berry y season, salad fixings and soon enough, sweet yellow corn. “We’re small enough to support the individual farmers that are local to each of our stores,” Benwell explains. “And we’re quick to react to customers’ rs’ requests and the commu-Red Barn Markets’ nity’s needs.” Russ Benwell Of course, produce isn’tt checks out the local the only department high-asparagus at the lighting local goodness. West Saanich Road House-made bacon and sausages – not location. to mention an amazing smoked cheddar – from the smokehouse at Red Barn’s Vanalman location is supplied to each of the stores three times a week. The four stores – the flagship store on West Saanich Road, Mattick’s Farm, Vanalman and most recently Latoria Walk – range from about 1,500-square-feet to 6,000 square feet, all small and intimate. “We have a cosy, welcoming feeling and we pride ourselves on the customer service we provide. Staff know customers by name and we offer a great spot to have a coffee or sit down with a sandwich from the deli.” This emphasis on local is a key component to the Red Barn philosophy, and has been since the founding partners launched the company. That philosophy extends to Red Barn’s support form the community that supports them. “It was instilled in us that it’s important to give back to the community and to have that two-way relationship with customers and staff,” whether that means cooking at a community barbecue, manning a refreshment station for Bike to Work Week, or providing in-kind donations, Benwell explains. “While we’re smaller than some stores, we still want to have a big impact on the community – being involved and giving back.” Red Barn has also forged a relationship with the celiac community and has the city’s widest selection of gluten-free and gluten-friendly items, from delicious baking to grocery items. In the meat department, house-made sausages and other products are identified with special tags as gluten-free or glutenfriendly. “We’ve really developed quite a following with the celiac community,” Benwell says. “We want to be a store that suits everybody’s lifestyle,” he explains. “There’s so many health concerns out there, people are starting to get away from the wheat products.” Specialty products, however, do not mean specialty pricing; the success Red Barn enjoys with customers comes in striking the balance between quality and value. “We pay close attention to the quality we’re providing in the four stores. We want to have value to match the price.” Coming up, customers will want to keep an eye out for Red Barn’s soon-to-be relaunched website, with a sign-up form to receive the e-flyer, along with information about coming events, promotions and recipes, plus links to the grocer’s social media components – an easy way to find out what’s in store!

Torchy’s wheels Vintage racing bike restored to mint condition Travis Paterson News staff

If spokes could speak, Torchy Peden’s racing bike could tell some commanding stories. William “Torchy” Peden’s track racing bicycle was the centre of attention on Saturday (May 12) as the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame unveiled it as part of a permanent display in the concourse of Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. Even at 80-years-old, the frame of Peden’s single-speed bike shares a similarity to the highly sophisticated Cervelo road bike which Victoria’s Ryder Hesjedal raced to 18th at the 2011 Tour de France. The two Canadian-made bikes now stand together as part of the hall’s new exhibit, a Cycling History of Greater Victoria: 18852012. “It’s amazing what (Torchy’s) bike went through,” says Saanich-resident Mark Perkins, who inherited the Torchy track bike from dad Gordon Perkins. At one point Torchy, who represented Canada in cycling at the 1928 Olympics, raced the bike in front of thousands of fans in the famous six-day races of the 1930s. Mark’s dad got the bike in the early 1940s, and during the end of the war he used it to commute to work at the Victoria Machinery Depot. “(Gord) used it during his courtship with my mom (Kay). She worked at the same place. He was a machinist and she was in the office. He would pick her up on the way and she’d ride side saddle, not an easy thing to do on a fixie.” Kay didn’t seem to mind, as the pair married in 1947. Gord likely raced the bike on the short lived Victoria Cycledrome, a wooden structure that showed up around 1940 at the Burnside Avenue and Douglas Street junction, but was gone by the early 1950s. Gord was born in 1923, 17 years after Torchy, and Gord became the B.C. road racing champ for his age group from 1935-38. Torchy and his younger brother Doug may have shared the bike when they competed in the six-day races, which would fill New York’s Madison Square Garden. It’s assumed the bike Gord inherited from Torchy once circled the track at MSG, for which it was designed. Coincidentally in the 1930s, both MSG and its winter tenant, the New York Rangers, were managed by Victoria’s Lester Patrick. Mark Perkins points at a picture of five Victoria Cycling Club members training for the 1941 Vancouver Province bicycle road race by doing laps in the Victoria Cycledrome. Among the cyclists are his dad, his dad’s friend Louis Haut and Eric Whitehead, who later documented many athletic achievements as a longtime sportswriter with the Vancouver Province. Mark Perkins picks out his father and guesses, “I’d be surprised if that’s not the

same bike he’s riding, as that’s about the time he got the bike. “Dad rode the bike into his 70s, down around Clover and Ogden points by Beacon Hill Park, the same place he used to race in the 1930s. Gord passed away in 2004, and Mark stored the bike in his garden shed. “When I grew up it was in our basement in Cadboro Bay. With no brakes, it was a scary bike. As a teenager I rode it and crashed it at Ten Mile Point. My sisters rode it too, up and down the street.” Vintage bike expert Casey Botman was tasked with restoring the bike in 2010 and finished it in 2011. Before it was enshrined at the Memorial Centre last weekend, it spent some time on display in the lobby the Peden RV Superstore in Sidney, run by the Peden generation of today. “When (Botman) got the bike he noticed the frame was bent a little bit. I don’t know if that was from me crashing the bike as a teenager, but I know I replaced the wheel because of it,” Perkins said. Botman, who lives in North Saanich, has a knack for bringing vintage bikes back to life, including the ultimate – penny farthings dating back to the 1890s. The significance of Torchy’s bike stood out. “A lot of bikes come without a story. Torchy’s was a rare, but simple bike, definitely cool to restore because of its history.” With the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame’s financial backing, Botman began to order in replica parts from Europe, which are made to the original standards. “The only thing CCM made was the crank and frame, but the bike would have had British-made hubs, and the other parts would have been made by different brands.” Even without the common restoration challenges of antique bikes, such as coast brakes, hand brakes and gears, it took some luck to bring the Torchy bike back to original status. One piece the hall of fame had already acquired was a leather Brooks seat, which had been engraved with a “T” for Torchy. But the stem for the handlebars was the keystone to the whole operation. CCM used a Cinelli stem, made in Italy, and a physiotherapist in Sidney happened to have an original that was once part of a similar bike. “We got lucky,” Perkins said. sports@vicnews.com

The restoration Both the frame and the forks of the Torchy Peden needed some work, but the bike is a shining homage to the days of dirt-road racing. “In those days Torchy was on wood rims. There were steel rims but they were too heavy to race,” Botman said. Replacing the wheels means ordering laminated beechwood replicas which are made in Italy. “The replica decal on the rims and the Cinelli stem are very important,” Botman said.
