Gordon Road residents give council an earful KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Critics of the pole peeling plant made a lot of noise at a city council meeting Tuesday night. Gordon Road residents fed up with a pole peeler operation in their neighbourhood came to the meeting armed with stereos and sound recordings of the noisy debarker. “We figured we’d let people hear it and let people know exactly where we’re coming from,” said Glenn Mills, who played a recording of the pole peeler’s high-pitch screech on his car stereo in the parking lot of city hall. “If the general public knew what we’re going through, I’m sure we’d have a lot more people on our side but we’re out in the boonies and no one knows about us.” While the pole peeler sounds wailed, a contingent of about 11 protested for the third time, waving signs condemning the city for allowing the peeler to move into their neighbour.

Smoke and machines Heavy machines build a fire break at a terrain fire in the Uplands Construction property near the Argonaut Road and Gold River Highway intersection around noon Wednesday. Campbell River Fire Chief Dean Spry said a deep seated fire in a pile of stumps, logs and dirt may have been smouldering for weeks before being fanned to life by the wind. The fire spread to surrounding grasses and there was concern it would make its way into a stand of mature timber on the perimeter of the property. The fire department responded at 11:47 a.m. with five pieces of equipment and 25 firefighters. The Oyster River Fire Department also contributed a tanker truck and the B.C. Forest Service responded with a helicopter and water bucket that dropped water on the fire. The fire was extinguished within two hours but mop up and hot spot control continued for another hour. In a related development, the Coastal Fire Centre has instituted a Category 2 fire ban on the coast. This applies to burning of any material, piled or unpiled, smaller than two metres in height and three metres in width, including burning barrels.

MINING WEEK 2012 Supporting Campbell River & The Comox Valley Mining Week 2012 provides an opportunity for our British Columbia mining industry to celebrate the successes of our industry, and recognize the valuable contributions that mining provides to our communities and lifestyles. This year we

have once again joined with our business partners to focus on how the mining industry worldwide affects our everyday lives. Recent editions of the Mirror have featured “WITHOUT MINING” notices that draw our attention to items that are

Some more samples of consumer applications that rely on mining products: • Batteries—nickel, cadmium, lithium, cobalt, coal • Circuitry—gold, copper, aluminum, steel, lithium, titanium, silver, cobalt, tin, lead, zinc • Computer/TV screens—silicon, boron, lead, barium, strontium, phosphorus, indium • Cosmetics and jewellery—iron oxide, kaolin, zinc, titanium, dioxide, gold, diamonds, copper, coal • Electricity—coal, uranium • Eyeglasses—limestone, feldspar, soda ash • Leather clothing—borax, chromium, zirconium, aluminum, titanium oxide • Musical instruments—copper, silver copper, silver, steel, nickel, brass, cobalt, copper, iron, aluminum • Sports equipment—graphite, aluminum, titanium, calcium carbonate, sulphur • Sun protection—zinc oxide • Steel—coal, nickel, iron ore, zinc for rustproofing • Vehicles and tires—steel, copper, zinc, barium, graphite, sulphur, bromine, iodine • Wind, solar, hybrids—nickel, aluminum, lithium, gallium, indium, germanium • Cement - made from coal and limestone, combined with aggregates for concrete Look Around you for items that come from mining…and bear in mind… “if it can’t be grown, it must be mined”

Addin to the result of resource mining. Adding those notices, on this page we’ve focu focused on a variety of items that indicate how intertwined our lives are with the mi mining industry industry.

MINING FULL PAGE PROCESS Mining…where would we be without it? For many people, mining is an industry that is considered to be “done somewhere else”. In reality, mining is a very important part of the British Columbia economy, including right here in Campbell River/Comox Valley. Based in Campbell River, the Quinsam Coal Corporation and the Nyrstar Myra Falls operations mine products that are shipped worldwide. Together we provide approximately 500 direct mining jobs. Our combined operating budgets inject in excess of one hundred million dollars into our local and regional economies. Also, add 1500 indirect local jobs with our suppliers and industry partners and it becomes evident that mining has a serious impact on our communities. Expanding the numbers to cover the rest of British Columbia, 2010 statistics show mining created 45,703 new jobs and contributed $9 billion of economic activity. This included nearly $1 billion in taxes which governments use to support health and education. Mining in British Columbia has developed a reputation of being the safest industry in the province, which is an achievement we are all very proud of. This type of operating focus does not stop at employee safety as we are equally dedicated to protecting the environments we affect. We are all very aware of the sensitivities of our environment and the impacts we can have. Significant and serious effort is made to ensure the provision of our products into the world marketplace does not come at the expense of our environment or livelihoods.

On behalf of all the employees at Quinsam Coal and Nyrstar Myra Falls, join us in celebrating Mining Week 2012. We look forward to a long and prosperous future for all of us!

Pole: Residents play recording of plant’s noise Continued from A1 Demonstrators stood along the side of St. Ann’s Road, beside the entrance to the city hall parking lot, before moving inside to take in the council meeting. Inside council chambers, Corinne Matheson, who lives on Gordon Bay Road, played an eight-minute video she filmed specially for council. “It’s easy to forget about us up there, so I thought I’d bring it to your attention,” Matheson said before letting the video roll. Matheson toured council around her property, her mother’s property and near the Blue Spruce Home Park, to demonstrate what she, and her neighbours, listen to Monday to Friday. But pole peeler neighbours in the gallery thought the video was muffled and were frustrated the volume couldn’t be turned up. “That’s what I hear from my house,” said Tracey Deller, coowner of Blue Spruce Home Park. “Come on, you can’t hear it. That’s terrible.” “A little louder, that’s not what we live with!” shouted another, followed by chants of “louder!” “louder!”

To try and prove their point, one woman proceeded to turn on her portable stereo and play her own audio recording of the pole peeler, filling council chambers with a highpitch buzzing sound. Gordon Road resident Mandy Heinen said that’s the sound she has to live with on a regular basis. “By the end of the day, you hear that all the time. Even at bedtime when you’re

trying to go to sleep,” she said. “Even when it’s off (it gets in your head).” The city has acknowledged the pole peeler owner, Northern Pressure Treated Wood out of Ontario, is in violation of a city noise bylaw. As a consequence, the owner is working to implement sound reduction measures as recommended by a consultant. The city received the owner’s permit applica-

tion for the alterations on April 27 but there’s been a delay, said Acting City Manager Ron Neufeld. “In reviewing those ap p l i c at i o n s s t a f f did identify there were inconsistencies between what was proposed and what was recommended in the sound consultant’s report,” Neufeld said. “We sent those applications back to ensure those plans are completely consistent with

the sound engineer’s recommendations.” Neufeld said those changes are nearly complete and he expects the permits to be issued shortly. Once the permit is secured, the owner has indicated it will take between two to three weeks to build the necessary sound reduction pieces, which include tunnels for both in and out log feeds in the peeler.

Coun. Claire Moglove tried to smooth things over with the frustrated residents that filled council chambers Tuesday night. “I want to make it clear, to everyone here that I, we, have not forgotten the situation you’re in,” Moglove said. “We’re in the midst of a process of enforcing the city bylaw. I understand that Corinne, you said (the tunnels) won’t

make a dif ference but whether it will or whether it won’t, we have to know that first. If it doesn’t make a difference, I for one will be seeking other options from staff.” That received applause from the gallery, which wasn’t as kind to Coun. Larry Samson, filling in for Mayor Walter Jakeway who was in Penticton for a mayoral caucus.

Hydro workshops for huge project open to the public PAUL RUDAN

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Want to know more about one the largest planned hydro projects in province? Find out everything you ever wanted to know and more about the proposed John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project during a two-day seminar in Campbell

River. The community environmental assessment seminars are open to the public and take place May 23-24, 1-8 p.m., at the Maritime Heritage Centre. “The workshop is the culmination of more than four years of meetings (with stakeholders),” said BC Hydro spokesman Stephen Watson. “It’s

by topic and we expect people to come and go.” Different presenters will speak on various topics to be followed by question and answer sessions. The opening day features a project overview and then presentations on vegetation and wildlife, contaminated soils, hydrology and hydraulics, and fish and fish

habitat. Day two will focus on water quality, archaeology, navigation, trails and access, accidents and malfunctions, and environmental management and monitoring. T he re placement project still requires final approval by the B.C. Utilities Commission, but BC Hydro is moving ahead with the environmental assessment process as well as narrowing down the contracting finalists. Watson said hydro was pleased to receive eight “requests for qualifications” from contractors ready to bid on the job, now estimated at $1-$1.2 billion. Hydro will narrow down the list to three and the winning bid will be announced

in summer 2013. “Constr uction is expected to be gin just weeks after the announcement,” said Watson. The plan is to replace the current generating station as well as the old wood pipelines with a 2.1-kilometre tunnel through bedrock. The project will improve efficiency for generating electricity and will vastly improve seismic stability.

Water levels The high snow pack and snow melt will keep the Campbell River flows fairly high this summer. BC Hydro advises the recreation community, such as fishers and water enthusiasts, to be cautious if they decide to enter the river. River flows may increase by 25 per cent this evening in response to the snow

melt. The higher river flow will be in place through mid-June. The water abundance will provide for good summer recreation within the Lower Campbell Reservoir and Upper Campbell Reservoir/Buttle Lake. Reservoir levels should be in ideal ranges for most of the summer. The May to September water supply forecast is currently showing 23 per cent higher than normal average. The higher river flow should allow BC Hydro to keep the reservoir from going above 220.5 metres where shoreline erosion can begin and, at the same time, have the Campbell River flows in a better position for late summer recreation and fishing.

During routine fish health tests held on May 14, Mainstream Canada’s Dixon Bay farm tested positive for the IHN (Infectious Haematopoietic

Necrosis) virus, the Campbell Riverbased company announced Tuesday. Third-party lab PCR test results have shown the presence of the virus. Sequencing has confirmed the presence of IHN virus in these fish. The farm site has been isolated

and is currently being prepared for depopulation, if deemed necessary upon completion of the investigation. The company is following strict protocols to limit the spread of the virus. The protocols are part of Mainstream Canada’s fish health management plan as

well as an industry viral disease management plan. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has been notified and is investigating the finding. Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s National Laboratory is conducting confirmatory testing.

“We are very concerned about this fish health event and are taking every step to make sure it is contained and any risks minimized,” said Fernando Villarroel, Mainstream Canada’s managing director. “This shows our disease monitoring programs work.”

Two businesses apply for downtown tax breaks Two local businesses will be exempt from taxes KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Two Campbell River businesses are taking advantage of the city’s new tax break incentives. CR DanceXtreme & Fitness and Tyee Chevrolet Buick GMC are the first to come forward and apply for a certificate aimed at stimulating the downtown core. The dance studio will be exempt from an increase on property taxes for five years, at 100 per cent of the portion of municipal property tax imposed because of improvements to the building. Tyee Chevrolet will be exempt for three years, at 50 per cent

of the municipal property tax portion imposed on the company’s building improvements. Last year, the car dealership built a brand new showroom along Dogwood Street. Based on the 2012 tax rates and new construction, the estimated tax exemption for Tyee Chev is $869 per year, or a total savings of $2,607 over the three-year tax exemption period. In the case of CR

DanceXtreme & Fitness, the dance studio was built last year at a cost of $250,000. The savings for the property owner is estimated to be $2,897 each year and $14,485 over the five-year exemption. The tax incentives are part of the city’s Downtown Revitalization Tax Exemption Agreement that was amended in 2011 to entice business owners to invest in targeted areas of the city’s downtown

Our View

Return of the PST The provincial government is bringing back the provincial sales tax (PST). It had no choice — it was told to do so by voters last summer in the HST referendum. The harmonized tax, and most speWe say: Liberals’ cifically, the way it came about, was so reviled that a majority of voters record on the were quite prepared to bring back HST a series of the PST. This despite the fact that the broken promises PST is not nearly as efficient a tax, and does not come with the tax credits that the HST does. Voters weren’t even swayed by a provincial promise to reduce the HST to 10 per cent, which would be two per cent lower than the

combined GST and PST. The provincial Liberal government had no one to blame but itself, although that hasn’t stopped it from blaming leaders of the Fight HST campaign, the media, rebellious citizens and the NDP. But it has now done what it had to do, and the new PST looks like it will be at least a little simpler for businesses to deal with. Payments can be made online and timelines will be more harmonized with the GST remittance schedule. While the government’s new PST bill does not specify what goods and services will be exempt from PST, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said the exemptions will be similar to those under the old PST. The list of goods and services to be exempted will be published

as a regulation, making it easier for the government to add and take away from the list of exempt items. While this naturally has raised some suspicions, as the Liberals’ record on the HST has been one of a long series of broken promises (remember the promise that the price of goods would come down because of the HST?), it will probably be more efficient. It will be up to the media, opposition politicians and the public to publicize PST exemptions and any changes to them. The entire HST exercise was beneficial in several respects. It showed that citizens have the power to put limits on governments that exceed their mandates. – Black Press

Stepping over the line Paul Rudan’s column last Friday was the most disturbing piece of anti-union rhetoric I have ever read. People who beat their dogs are committing a violent criminal offence. To compare what teachers are doing to try and save our crumbling public education system to a violent criminal act is stepping way over any imaginable line. The two anti-union Mirror columnists, Rudan and Tom Fletcher, make quite the tag team. The conversations I have had with teachers and parents regarding extra-curricular activities are the toughest conversations I’ve had as a union rep, but teachers are fighting for the basics – the conditions in the classroom during the school day. It is unfortunate and disappointing to everyone when an activity such as a camping trip is cancelled. However, teachers are not fighting for guaranteed camping trips or guaranteed sports tournaments. If those students who are disappointed now can have decent class sizes, support services, and resources to succeed in their future years in our public schools, then these small disappointments now will be a worthwhile Continued on A9 We welcome your opinions on stories and issues published in our pages as well as issues of broader concern encountered elsewhere.

Cajoling the models takes patience and a feather boa

Paul Rudan No, really

During his career with the Victoria Police Department, Gary Green wasn’t used to having his subjects move around so much...if at all. As the head of forensic investigations, Green photographed hundreds of grisly crime scenes and “subjects” who would never move again on their own. But in his retirement the Courtenay resident chooses to spend his time in the land of the living, so to speak, and to help a cause near and dear to his heart: animals. “I’ve seen a lot of brutal crimes, but when I see an injured animal, it gets to me more than anything,” he says during a professional visit to the BC SPCA shelter in Campbell River. Green no longer examines crime

scenes, but he does teach at the Justice Institute and also educates SPCA workers on the finer points of investigating incidents of animal cruelty. “I’m impressed with their knowledge and dedication, especially with a lack of resources,” he says of the SPCA investigators. Today though, there are no crimes to look into and no lectures to give, just several antsy cats who are acting like fussy models. In a nutshell, they are “refusing” to sit still and pose for Green. It’s Pup-a-razzi Day at the SPCA and Green has volunteered his time, equipment and expertise to photograph the dogs and cats available for adoption. His goal is to show them in their

best light, rather than the typical SPCA adoption photos of dogs and cats inside cages. “We have to make our pictures better,” says Kathleen Embree, the longtime manager at the local shelter. Embree is thrilled Green is volunteering to photograph the two dogs and almost 20 cats available for adoption at the Campbell River animal shelter. The photographs will be posted in the scrolling digital frame at the shelter for adoptive families to see. The pictures and their profiles will also be posted online at the BC SPCA’s new website, bcpetsearch.com The website also allows visitors to check with the local shelter to see if their missing dog or cat is there.

Back on the “catwalk,” Green and Kathy Oh, an animal care attendant, are doing their best to coax Tia, a good-looking 10-year-old tabby, to sit still for her special photo. Green concentrates behind the viewfinder, waiting for the perfect moment, while Oh cajoles Tia with squeeze toys, a little feather boa, by combing her fur, and crumpling plastic bags. “Got one!” says Green with satisfaction after viewing the picture. “She sure made me work for those ones,” adds Oh. To which Green responds, “Animals require a lot of patience,” says the owner of two border collies. paulr@campbellrivermirror.com

FOLLOW US ON...

Over-simplified reaction to an unfortunate crisis I’d like to sarcastically say thanks to Paul Rudan for vividly providing an example of what ignorance and careless expression of biased opinion looks like. His column in your paper on Friday, May 11, reveals an oversimplified reaction to an unfortunate crisis in education in this province caused by the provincial governments passing of their regressive and immoral legislation, Bill 22. I’ve coached in the school system and in the community for

24 years. I do not take the decision to withdraw my volunteer activities lightly. Doing so lessens my personal satisfaction in my work and hinders the maintenance and development of school culture and community. However, the action to withdraw these voluntary sevices, not “duties” was a necessary last resort. The government has systematically over the years, downloaded their reponsibilities onto an overwhelmed system without providing for or paying to

support them. School PACs supplement school site budgets, four year olds go to school to lessen the governments obligations to child care and teachers manage a ever-growing curriculum expected to solve or drive change to address a variety of society’s ills. Drug abuse, bullying, environmental stewardship, gambling, poverty, smoking and obesity are some of the issues schools have been tasked with as add- ons to the traditonal, well known sub-

ject areas we all know and expect schools to cover. I’ve watched a lot of newscasts over the years where some tradgedy seems inevitably to come back to, “the schools need to do a better job of....” (just fill in the blank). Teachers’ volunteer work keeps some kids involved in activities that some couldn’t otherwise arrange or afford. They are important roles we fill but hugely underappreciated. In many school systems coaches are paid for what B.C.

teachers volunteer to provide. So again, teachers, in taking a stand, are left with only one chip to play, their own time. Their personal time which so many have given at the cost of their breaks, lunches and family time which most workers in other sectors view as a sacred right. Teachers have always done these things without looking at a clock and saying, “woops, coffee time” or “I can’t, I’m hungry.” I, like most teachers, Continued on A10

Continued from A8 price to be paid. W h e n a t e a ch e r decides not to participate in an extra curricular activity, and if that leads to cancellation, then kids, parents and the teacher are all “disappointed.” However, teachers see a much bigger picture

on a daily basis. Students and teachers will be “hurt” by the legislation that we are fighting against now, as they have been by the many pieces of destructive legislation that have crippled the public school system over the last decade. Students have been

losing out more every ye a r, l o n g b e fo re teacher job action, and long before teachers made decisions to withdraw their voluntary contributions to a disintegrating school system. Teachers are the only ones who have consistently spoken out, and

we have held the pieces of the system together with the glue of our compassion for our students. The government is the entity that has been doing the metaphoric beating, as teachers try to fight for our students, for our constitutional rights, and for

the protection of the teaching profession in B.C. I wish my precious dog was still alive so I could go home and give him a hug and take him for a walk. Elaine Thompson, President, Campbell River District Teachers’ Association

NOTICE 3X5

HOSPITAL AREA RESIDENTS The Vancouver Island Health Authority advises residents who live in the vicinity of Campbell River Hospital that there may be early morning construction noise at the site May 22 through May 25, 2012 between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. Construction of the parkingVIHA pad for the coming Mobile Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system is underway at the Campbell River Hospital site. It is necessary to begin work on the project one hour earlier than usual on these dates to allow for compaction of the sub grade fill to occur at a time that does not disrupt the adjacent hospital operating rooms. The patience of hospital area residents is much appreciated as we work toward completing this project that will further improve access to health services for residents of Campbell River and surrounding communities. Residents with questions and concerns can call the VIHA project manager, Gerry Underhill at 1-250-519-1573 or email gerry.underhill@viha.ca.

teachers that they have forgotten that the teachers involved are volunteers. No one goes wild when a community baseball or hockey coach hangs it up after years of volunteering. Instead they are thanked for their gracious contributions over the years. As a school coach I have been thanked by players and parents about 20 times over 24 years, spanning

about 100 teams and and over 1,500 players. Nobody in the school system wants to stop providing out of school opportunities for kids but when does it all become just enough? Enough of being used and expected to do things by a government that wanted to shirk their fiscal obligations to the public while also shrinking revenue by decreasing the taxes paid by their big business friends.

I am confident this will all get worked out some day and the kid’s temporary suffering will become a distant, unfortunate memory. Children are resilient and have been made so in part by the support from their teachers. I think it will take the public realizing what this government is doing to the public interest on the whole to solve this problem. Parents might consider speaking out for

and with the teachers instead of against them. Look at what teachers have done for your students over the years in and out of class and celebrate that. Then work with us and add your voices to ours and tell this government through your MLA, that they should stop taking advantge of the good will of public workers and negotiate in good faith.

Learn how local agencies keep things wild at Campbell River wildlife symposium An upcoming symposium on wildlife will feature four expert speakers. This free event is open to everyone and is intended to be of interest to both professionals working in related fields, as well as the public. “I think there is a real interest from the public to learn about wildlife and wildlife manage-

ment,” says organizer Jason Hutchinson, “and I wanted to provide a forum where this knowledge is shared not only to professionals, but to anyone who is interested.” Hutchinson previously org anized a similar symposium in Prince George that was attended by more than 200 people. The presenters

include Dave Donald, Ter ri Martin, Elke Wind and David Ewart. Donald is an ecosystem biologist who will be presenting about species at risk management on the B.C. coast, highlighting marbled murrelet, norther n goshawk, amphibians, grizzly bear and ungulates. Martin is the environ-

mental co-ordinator for the City of Campbell River. Her presentation is entitled “Environmental development permits – Why all the red tape?” Wind is a biologist who specializes in amphibians. Her presentation is about the threats and management practices relating to amphibians

on Vancouver Island. Ewart is a watershed enhancement manager from Fisheries and Oceans Canada and he will be providing an update on the Quinsam River Fish Passage Project. This symposium will be held at the Lecture Hall at North Island Colle ge/Timberline from 7-9 p.m. on May 24.

Drop off your Scrap Metal Challenge donations The Campbell River Hospital Foundation’s Scrap Metal Challenge is about to get underway. For the month of Ju n e, p e o p l e a r e invited to drop-off any scrap metals they may have lying around the

yard. A community bin is located at the Dogwood Operations Centre, next door to the RCMP building, and at ABC Recycling, located at 4318 Terminal Place. Items such as lawn mowers and barbecues

Oh no...say it ain't so

will not be picked up, as reported in Friday’s Mirror. However, pickup can be arranged for vehicles. Local businesses including Finning Canada, AJ Forsythe, Nyrstar Mining, NVI Mining and the City

of Campbell River will be participating in the Hospital Foundation’s lastest fundraiser. All businesses that sign up for the Scrap Metal Challenge will go head-to-head in a race to donate the most scrap metal.

The winner will be awarded a trophy made from an old kitchen sink. To get involved contact Stacey Marsh at the Hospital Foundation, (250) 850-2418 or e-mail stacey.marsh@ viha.ca

Drive Smart BC Using Stop Signs 2X14 Speed to Control Speeds considered excessive by residents are considered reasonable by these same persons when they are driving in another neighborhood. This observation is taken from a publication titled Speed Control in Residential Areas by the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE). It goes on to say that residents’ complaints are usually accompanied by a proposed solution to the speeding problem... stop signs. My curiosity on the subject was piqued by a Comox Valley resident who drew my attention to a newspaper story describing exactly this situation in the Village of Cumberland. One resident even played the ace by saying “My problem lies in the fact that one day, in the no so distant future, a vehicle may strike and kill a pedestrian, child, pet or what have you,” However, like the ITE, two of the village counsellors knew that using stop signs in this situation could actually make the problem worse. Contrary to what you might think, stop signs do not positively control speed. They are frequently violated and actually increase speeds between signs as drivers make up for time lost in stopping or only slowing down for the stop signs. This exacerbates the speeding problem and introduces the new problem of disobeying the stop sign. We’re now worse off than before we tried to fix the problem by putting up the stop sign. Traffic calming measures, installed as part of an area wide traffic management plan will be more successful. It will also prevent a shift of the problem from one street to another as drivers find new routes to avoid stopping. The three E’s, Enforcement, Education and Engineering need to be joined by Community Involvement to produce success. Perhaps the Cumberland residents would be better served by creating their own Living Streets program. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience.

HAVE YOU HAD CAPITAL GAINS IN THE LAST 3 YEARS?

Stacey Marsh, left, of the Campbell River Hospital Foundation accepted a cheque for $6,160 from Hilary SchweitzerMcEwen of Ocean Pacific. The money was raised through Ocean Pacific’s live auction during its boat show April 14. Donors included Canaccord, WestJet, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Tyee Marine, BC Salmon Farmers, Storey Creek Golf, Ablaze Metal Art, Bikram Yoga, Stereo Fitness, Mussels & More Pottery, West Coast Sales, Pro Mariner, Blue Seas Systems, System Three, Western Marine, Xylem Inc., and 3M.

Many people with investments outside their RRSP have experienced plummeting values in their stock portfolios. If you have had capital gains in the last 3 years this creates Faye Reynen an opportunity for you to realize some of your current losses and have those losses carried back up to 3 years for a refund of taxes paid in those years. You can also use this to offset Capital Gains in the current year. Although you will not recapture taxes paid in a prior year, you will put off taxes on this year’s Capital Gain until such time as the shares in your portfolio show gains. This is assuming that after selling the losing stocks you leave the money from the share sales in your portfolio and purchase other shares. If these are stocks you have confidence in you can reacquire similar stocks (or the same stock if you wait the mandatory 30 days) and wait for them to rise again. You should contact both your financial advisor and your accountant before embarking on this suggestion. You or your authorized representative can find out whether you have had capital gains in the last three years by going to your My Account at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/menu-eng.html. If you have not already done so you will need to sign up to My Account by following the links. Most Tax Preparers will have had you sign a T1013 Authorization to Represent a Client. This allows them to check on your My Account for you.

Head out to a B.C. park for long weekend British Columbians have made more than 6,000 camping reservations for the Victoria Day long weekend representing an approximate 13 per cent increase over the same period last year, Environment Minister Terry Lake said this week. Overall, reservations in BC Parks are up six per cent this year (38,775 reservations) compared with 2011 (36,563 reservations) and it’s not too late to book a campsite for the long weekend. Environment Minister Terry Lake said, “When you see these kinds of numbers with BC Parks reservations, I think that speaks to the quality experience people have come to expect in our parks. We continue to provide British Columbians with the best value and lots of options for outdoor fun.” Sites with substantial remaining reservable campsites are Gladstone, Green Lake, Red Bluff, Strathcona, Wells Gray and Wasa Lake provincial parks. To see which camp-

sites are still available, check out: www.discovercamping.ca The most popular parks are Haynes Point, Bear Creek, Rathtrevor Beach and Okanagan Lake South. If you want to visit a park but there is no reservable space left, check out the firstc o m e, f i r s t - s e r ve d availability tool on the Discover Camping website. For the 2012 season, campsites in 95 BC Parks can be reserved and also new this year is the ability to make up to three reservations in one transaction. Don’t forget that last May Premier Christy Clark a n d E nv i r o n m e n t Minister Terry Lake announced that parking is now free in BC Parks, and that benefits families who want to stop by for a day-visit.

and the Mount Robson Berg Lake Trail. ■ In 2011, BC Parks brought in a convenient new Smartphone application that allows campers to make, change and cancel a reservation while on the road. ■ Even though the Smartphone interface was developed for ease of access while on the road, you do not need a Smartphone or Android to access the mobile system. You can use any computer. This is a great tip to provide another means

Keegan ready to set sail for diabetes High school student Keegan Taberner is a real go-getter and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never let his disease get in the way of living a healthy, active life. Taberner, an 18-yearold honours students, is putting that strength to the test two months from now. T h e T i m b e rl i n e secondary student is planning to set sail down the Pacific coast after he graduates in

June. He hopes to leave Campbell River July 1. Taberner hopes to sail 16,000 kilometres in six months. After leaving Campbell River, he will travel south as far as Puerto Vallarta, Mexico before heading over to Hawaii, then back up the Strait of Juan de Fuca towards home. But this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a typical pleasure cruise. Taberner is on a mission to raise money and awareness of juvenile (type 1) diabetes,

something he has lived with since he was twoyears-old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to take injections of insulin four times per day since I was two, so that adds up to about tens of thousands during my lifetime,â&#x20AC;? Taberner says. His mission, dubbed Kee gan Taber nerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sail for Juvenile Diabetes, is to raise as much money as he can before and during his trip. His biggest fundraiser is the sale of

raffle tickets. Taberner went to each company personally to ask for prize donations. The grand prize is a Seaward kayak, complete with all gear, from Outdoor Addictions. Second prize is a salmon fishing charter, while third prize is a sailing adventure. Other prizes include a helicopter ride and a kayaking tour. Tabernerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to raise $30,000 before he leaves and $100,000 by the time heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done.

is to spread the word and have the locals in each community come down to meet him and donate to the cause. Taberner will not be alone in his quest – a number of people will sail different legs of the trip with him, although he’s still looking for one person to do the entire trip so that he will have two crew mates at all times. Taberner will be the skipper of the 38-footer he’s close to purchasing. In the meantime, he’s been practising

Campbell River Living A far cry from a handful of rooms in a church basement KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

T

he Campbell River Christian School has come a long way since its humble beginnings in the Baptist Church basement. There were fewer than 70 students and just six staff – including the school’s first principal Harold Carlaw – when the school opened its doors in September 1981. For classes outside of English, math and science, the school relied on the kindness of volunteers willing to share their craft. “A bunch of people in the church saw a vision for a Christian education,” says Gregg Mitchell, a retired teacher who sat on the original school board and served as chair for seven years. “It started with a lot of individualized education.” Two years later, the school’s population had grown and students were split between two locations. Kindergarten and Grade 1 students attended school in classrooms at Christian Life Fellowship church while students up to Grade 8 studied in the church basement on McLean Street, where the Salvation Army’s Ocean Crest Community Church is now. In the early 1990s, the Baptist Church purchased a chunk of land on Dogwood Street where a new school was to be built. On June 20, 1991 ground was broken for construction of the new school, but the church suffered a serious setback. The school building was burned down during construction on Sept. 16, 1991 and workers had to start from scratch. Undeterred, construction resumed. One year later, in 1992, Christian School students and staff finally had a building of their own when the first day of classes began that September. The building, which

is in use today, is 2,700 square feet and has 22 classrooms – a far cry from the handful of small rooms in the old Baptist Church basement. This year, the Christian School is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Clarence and Lori Guilderson, who both attended the school as teenagers, have seen a lot of changes since their time at the school. For starters, there are now 240 students at the school and 40 staff. “It was a great school when we were there,” says Clarence, who started at the school in 1983, with about 20 kids in his class. “The teachers genuinely cared for us and that made a big difference. I think the smaller class sizes helped me to focus on my education.” But there were some challenges that came with the school not having its own building. “For PE sometimes we would go down to the Community Hall and use the gym there,” Clarence says. “We would use the city buses and take them down.” Lori recalls having to go to Phoenix school in the evenings to use the lab for science experiments. Still, the Guildersons valued their time at the Christian School so dearly that they chose to enrol their own children . Three of their kids – Allison, 17, Adam, 14, and Nathan, 10 – still attend the school. Their oldest daughter Hayley, 18, graduated from the Christian School last year. “We had a good experience and we wanted

Two generations of the Guilderson family have been educated at Campbell River Christian School which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this weekend.

that for our kids as well,” Lori says. Clarence knew his children would get a quality education at the Christian School. “We like the values at the school, we like the teachers,” he says. “The teachers really care about the kids and have strong ethics. You know the teachers have the same values as you do.” The school follows the same B.C. government curriculum as public schools with the exception of Bible class and weekly chapel services. Mitchell says the school is a ministry of the Baptist Church

and caters to the Christian community. Students who attend the school must have either a parent or a grandparent who is a Christian. “Putting Jesus Christ in all aspects of education is the reason why (the school) exists,” Mitchell said. “You have the freedom to talk about the Bible, there’s a Bible class every day, and science courses are taught from a Christian perspective – you can deal with creationism.” Ken Falk, a Grade 5 teacher at the school, is the longest-serving teacher at the Christian School. He started teaching

2X5

at the school in 1985, fresh out of the University of Victoria, and planned to stay a year or two. That was 27 years ago. “The kids and staff grew on me and it’s just a really fun place to hang out,” Falk said. “The benefits of the atmosphere

outweigh the money dangling across the street. It’s just a really comfortable place to be, with good people.” The school raises money for the food bank through its Stuff the Bus challenge; it sponsors a child in Africa; and it hosts a Community Service Day where the students pitch in to clean-up the community. Students have also participated in a mission to Africa and in Esperanza, where they work each year alongside the church ministry to provide the homeless on the west coast of Vancouver Island with stable housing and emergency shelters. Students in the past have also volunteered their time at a soup kitchen in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

Weekend celebrations To mark the Christian School’s 30th anniversary, the school has two events planned, which will also go towards raising money to pay off the school’s new bus. On Sat., May 19 there is an open house at the school from 1-4 p.m. with activities, outdoor games, entertainment, and a walk down memory lane. Then on Sunday, the Baptish Church is having a fellowship potluck lunch from 12-2:30 p.m. on the Christian School field. Later that same day, the school is hosting a special reunion dinner from 6:30-9 p.m. There is a meet and greet beforehand from 5-6:30 p.m. Tickets are available for the dinner at the Christian School office.

Celebrate authours, seafood and ale on Cortes C

BC’s Grant Lawrence, author of Adventures in Solitude: What not to wear to a nude potluck, a memoir of his time spent at his family cabin in Desolation Sound, will be hosting the Authors, Seafood & Ale event on Cortes Island on May 26. Lawrence will read from his work, and will be joined by Michael Ableman (author and Saltspring farmer), Rex Weyler (co-founder of Greenpeace International), Jan Zwicky (poet and philosopher), Monica Nawrocki (Cortes author), Judy Williams (Cortes author), and Tara Warkentin (Cortes Young Writers Prize winner). The evening will be a celebration of British Columbia’s literary riches, the bounty of our oceans, and the

craft of local brewing. Authors will read excerpts from their work, while seafood tapas are served and ale samples from two local craft brewers (Driftwood Brewery based in Victoria, and Townsite Brewing from Powell River) are served. There will also be live music and door prizes. The event will raise funds for Cortes Island Literacy Outreach. More information and tickets can be found at http://cortesliteracy.com ■ Michael Ableman is an author, educator, advocate for sustainable agriculture, and organic farmer on Salt Spring Island.

At work, at home, at play, in the car, in the doctor’s office, we are surrounded by information that we need to understand in order to make sense of the world around us.” Cortes Island Literacy Outreach initiatives have sought to inspire and engage the community around the issues of Literacy. P rojects have included: Authors, Seafood & Ale, after school programs for young writers, an annual young writers competition, First Nations language revival project, French immersion soccer hour, media literacy (including filming and editing). Recent initiatives have addressed health literacy and a community-based skills sharing including small business, financial management, board member training, wilderness survival skills and computer literacy. As funding agencies lessen their support for our work, fundraising events like Authors, Seafood & Ale are critical to the ongoing success of Cortes Island Literacy Outreach.

Five Easy Pieces helps make hearts healthy, happy

Mary Ellen Walling, executive director of the BC Salmon Farmers Association, passed on the cheque to Jaime Spyksma from the Heart and Stroke Foundation, with Dawn Pomponio of the Campbell River Perinatal Society boxing up their clothing donation.

Five people, five pieces of clothing: all together, more than $5,000 raised for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The month-long second-annual Five Easy Pieces fundraiser by the BC Salmon Farmers Association – which sees staff chose five pieces of clothing to wear to work for the month of April – has been deemed a success, with a total of $5,278.30 raised through pledges and sponsorship. “This is a fun challenge for our staff – even if at times we get really tired of that clothing,” said Mary Ellen Walling, executive director. “It’s such an important cause, and one everybody is always happy to get behind. The generosity is really heartening.” The Heart and Stroke Foundaiton is a natural fit for BC’s salmon farmers: encouraging healthy life-

style diet choices – like adding more salmon to your diet – can go a long way to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke for women and men. At the end of the month, the team at the salmon farmers association also hosts a fundraising clothing swap – inviting the community to get involved by donating clothing and by stopping by for a new-to-you shop by donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Clothing donated to the clothing swap that was not swapped, was donated to the New Dawn House, under development by the Campbell River Perinatal Society, which will help women who are pregnant and need safe housing. This year, the Five Easy Pieces Challenge expanded, with fish farming colleagues on the east coast – the Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association taking on the month-long challenge.

Lesia Davis receives national award for museum leadership Lesia Davis, former Executive Director of the Museum at Campbell River, was presented with a prestigious national award in Gatineau, Quebec on April 25 of this year for her exceptional work as the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director. She was named the recipient of the Canadian Museums Association Barbara A. Tyler Award in Museum Leadership. Davis is only the second person to receive the award which recognizes â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the best leadership in museum management in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. She was nominated based on the criteria of leadership, vision, pursuit of excellence and creative innovation in a career related

to museums. Along with the award, Davis was given a cheque for a thousand dollars for training and development of a designated protĂŠgĂŠ at the Campbell River Museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am honoured and humbled to receive this award for doing what I have loved doing over the years,â&#x20AC;? Ms Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And while it is very flattering because it denotes national recognition of my endeavours by peers in the museum field, the fact is the work has been rewarding in and of itself.â&#x20AC;? Colleen Evans, President of the Museum Board of Trustees said,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The award is a fitting honour to Ms Davis, who over a period of 14 years led the transition of the museum from nothing but bare walls to the status of a National, Class â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; designated museum. As Ms Davis planned her retirement for the end of April, the timing was especially appropriate. Many people in Campbell River and the surrounding region have long known of her exceptional work at the Museum and in the community. It is clear from this award that the Canadian museum world is equally aware of her leadership qualities.â&#x20AC;?

A Claremont Spartan could care less about the game ball offered by the ref as the Carihi Tyees celebrate winning the Island AAA soccer title Tuesday afternoon on home field.

walked onto the pitch to shake hands with members of the Claremont Spartans of Victoria. In a fitting victory, the Carihi Tyees shutout the favoured Spartans 2-0, and denied Claremont its third straight Island title. The local girls led 1-0 at the half; Anika Shelsrud made a nice run, an even nicer cross, and the ball was calmly swept into the corner of the net by Karlyn Healy for the game opener. In the second half, a re-energized Spartans squad started exerting some offensive pressure, but Carihi goalkeeper Hayley Craddock was stellar and made several impressive saves to blank Claremont. Then it was left to Eilidh “Razza” Rasmussen to seal the game for the Tyees

with a super-dazzling run down the middle where she danced past three defenders before finding the back of the net. It was the sixth straight post-season victory for Carihi which went undefeated in two games at the North Island finals, before rattling off four more in front of homefield fans. T h e T ye e s a l s o allowed just one goal in the four games during the Island finals. The team started off by spanking Spectrum of Victoria 5-0 on Monday morning. In the afternoon, Carihi defeated Alberni Secondary 4-1. In Tuesday mor ning’s semi-final, the Tyees blanked Belmont of Victoria 2-0 on goals by Razza, on a penalty, and Claire Pomeroy. In the other match for third and fourth place, with the winner going to the provincials, Belmont edged Oak Bay 2-1. Continued on Page 31

The Importance of Building Resilient Families Commitment – is showing dedication C and a loyalty toward the family as a whole. Strong families often view the wellbeing of S the t family as a first priority. Commitment is expressed in many ways, to the family, the e partner relationship, children, the extended p family and/or the community. fa

Let’s face it; life can get pretty tricky sometimes. We all have days where it’s harder to get out of bed than others and we all go through road bumps as we navigate life. Resilience is just a big word for what we use to make it through these times. We all have qualities of resilience that we use daily and, like with many things in life, we are better at using some more than others. A large part of resilience is having support and knowing who we can turn to when we are reaching our limits. Family can be a large part of this support system. Very often when we talk about resilience, we talk about the individual but families as a whole can be resilient too!

The T above attributes are encompassed within the concept of family resilience. w Resilient families are able to adapt to changR ing in circumstances and have a positive attitude towards the challenges of family life. t They deal with these challenges by means T of o communication – talking things through with w each other; supporting each other in times of need and/or seeking outside supt port when it is beyond the families capability p to deal with the situation; and togetherness – pulling together to form a united front and find solutions. f

Family resilience is a path a family follows as it adapts and prospers in the face of stress. As with individual resilience, family resilience will change over time as families face different challenges and life events. Generally, there are 7 ways in which families can strengthen their resilience: Communication – families interact with each other frequently and predominantly in an open, positive, and honest manner and use humour as a part of their communication. Togetherness – the “invisible glue” that bonds the family and gives the family members a sense of belonging. An important ingredient to this ‘glue’ is sharing similar values, beliefs and morals. Sharing activities – strong families like to share and do activities with each other – activities such as sports, camping, playing games, reading stories, socializing together and sharing hobbies and holidays. Affection – is a strength when family members show love, care, concern and interest for each other on a regular basis through words, hugs, kisses and thoughtfulness. Expressions of affection are often ritualized

Here are ways local families in Campbell H River have practiced their resilience: R

in families – for example, with greetings and farewells, bedtime story reading, and during celebrations such as birthdays and Christmas. Support – is assisting, encouraging, reassuring each other and looking out for each other. It is strengthened when family members feel equally comfortable to offer or ask for support. Acceptance – means showing respect, appreciation, and understanding for each other’s individuality and uniqueness. Acceptance is a strength when family members acknowledge, value and tolerate each other’s differences, and when the members allow each other space.

“I “ have been reminded that all the little things, like smiling at or speaking to others t in our community, can make a difference to that person and how they feel about their t place in the world. I have also used the resiliency information to help support my daughter as she struggles with a very academic honours degree program, and have reminded her of all her strengths and past successes, and cautioned her of the pitfalls of negative thinking.” “At home I have made more of a concentrated effort to identify/praise specific qualities and talents of my 13 year old son.” “I think about resiliency for myself and my family and intentionally plan activities in our week that best meet and bolster us as a family. I talk about resiliency with families I work with too.”

Stop and listen to your roses Our children can be like the proverbial rose bush en route to our daily destinations – we remind ourselves to stop and listen, however kids can often become the background soundtracks in our busy lives. Its Monday, that means my head is swirling with the schedules of each family member’s activities – judo, hockey, PAC, swimming and managing the routines necessary to get us where we need to be. My calendar is a cryptic, encoded mess of scribble that only I can decipher and my routine for after school to bedtime is a finely tuned machine with minimal room for error. Only one other day of the week comes close to the chaos of Monday and that’s Wednesday. Tuesday, a much needed breather day, the day we all just be. Without days like Tuesday, I could not have written this article. The beauty of it lies in the time we all have to appreciate a slow pace, our conversations find depth unexplored on the Mondays and Wednesdays of the week, it is when we can move beyond merely

hearing each other, to really listening. When I hear my kids, I am taking in pretty much only what is delivered to my ears. Mondays and Wednesdays I always hear about their school day, their conversations to each other and their requests and their protests. However, when I am not distracted and limited to only my ears, and I can truly listen to my boys –whether directly or indirectly – I am using many senses to understand them. It’s like striking gold sometimes when I have been noticing a behaviour that needs attention and I begin to observe and listen to what my son is communicating in the many circumstances that surround him. Sometimes drawing the lines from behavior to needs is a long and winding process, but the satisfaction of relieving the pressure on that little guy by the needed response without negative approach, is a reward well worth it – the gift of a life long healthy relationship.

Listen Listen to your children at bedtime. You will hear them talk about the events of the day and their dreams for tomorrow. Moments like this make a child feel cherished. Listen to the feelings behind children’s words and actions and discuss them by name. Children will learn a language known the world over - the language of feelings.

CHILDREN

deserve a good start in life. Children who experience stimulating and nuturing enviroments during their first six years have better outcomes throughout their lives.

Listen to children and they will feel understood and learn to understand others. This is one way empathy develops. Listen to babies’ babble and respond in “baby talk.” Babies might not understand your words but they will understand the feelings behind them. Listen to children with all your attention - with your ears, eyes, body and heart. They will feel your respect. Mary Gordon, The Early Years: The Precious Years

May is speech and hearing month Do you know a child who is two years old and only using a few words? Do you know a child who is three years old and very difficult to understand? If so, you might know a child with speech and/or language difficulties. Now is the time to get more information, since May is Speech and Hearing Month. As adults, we often take the precious gift of communication for granted. An estimated 4% of Canadian preschoolers have significant speech and/or language difficulties. Research shows that early detection of speech, language and hearing difficulties can make an important difference in a child’s life. If you have any questions or concerns about a preschooler’s speech and language abilities, don’t wait. Contact the Speech and Language Program at Sunrise Resources for Early Childhood Development. Does your child: - rarely attempt to speak or imitate others? - seem uninterested in playing with other children? - play with toys in an unusual way? - have difficulty following directions? - seem to answer questions in an odd way? - repeat sounds and/or parts of words? - have a harsh, nasal or wet/gurgly sounding voice? - choke and gag a lot when eating or drinking? - have trouble being understood –especially by those outside the family? - talk as if he/she were younger than he/she really is? May Month has been celebrated across North America since 1927 as an annual event that promotes and celebrates members of the Canadian Association of Speech Language Pathologists and Audiologists (www.caslpa.ca) and the impact that they make on the health of our country. Early identification and treatment is important. Anyone can call the Speech and Language Program at Sunrise Resources for Early Childhood Development (250) 286-0955 to make a referral for a child or to get more information. This program provides assessment, therapy, consultation, and public education services free of charge to children aged birth to school entry. Early referral is recommended due to a waitlist for services. Sunrise Resources for Early Childhood Development is located at #110-1180 Ironwood Street in Campbell River.

A world exists, outside of your home, where your child is precious. Your child will spend valuable time with adults who truly enjoy their company ...with adults who listen to your child’s ideas and stories ...with adults who turn and look your child in the eyes when they are speaking. We believe this is how children grow. The Campbell River Child Care Society believes in the power of child care programs to support and enrich the lives of families and the development of children. We are proud of our practices and live our motto: Child Care - We Care ...... for over 45 years.

Teaching kids the value of money – Removing the guesswork When it comes to teaching kids the value of money, it’s important to remove the guesswork. According to a recent study by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA), 78 per cent of Canadian parents surveyed have tried to teach their children financial management skills, but the majority (60 per cent) do not believe they have been very successful. “Parents can give their children an important advantage in life by starting in-home discussions about money matters at an early age,” says Cairine Wilson, vicepresident, Member Services, CICA. “The majority realizes this, but many Canadian parents are unsure about how to proceed.”

Taub firmly believes that to be effective teachers, parents must first be good financial role models. “How parents manage their money greatly influences their children,” says Taub. “The first chapter of the book outlines 10 healthy financial habits h parents can use to keep their th affairs in order and model responsible financial decision re making for their children.” m A mother of two, Taub also believes b it is essential for kids to gain not only financial knowledge, g but b also the values and discipline needed to ensure they put the n skills s they learn into action.

Why dads should read to their children! When educators talk about parents being involved at an early age in helping children build literacy skills most people assume that means moms. Research shows that children’s literacy levels improve greatly when Dads get involved with reading. Dads and other males in a child’s world are every bit as important as moms in helping children learn to enjoy reading. It is important for boys to see dads read and to be read to by dads as reading is sometimes seen as a “girly” thing to do. Dads can be role models by letting

their boys see them read and enjoy reading. There are lots of dad things to read besides story books, magazines, newspapers, manuals, books about nature, are all materials that show boys they can find the right thing to read. Children who are read to and have many favourite books tend to do better in school. Regular reading of a wide range of materials can be the foundation for a lifelong reading habit. Do your part dad, read with your kids! Anne Boyd, Campbell River Literacy Now

Reading to young children promotes language acquisition and literacy development and, later on, achievement in reading comprehension and overall success in school.

The Continued Child Care Crisis in BC Families across BC and Canada are facing a crisis in childcare, things are going from bad to worse. There is a shortage of regulated spaces, fees are high and the early childhood workforce is underpaid with many Early Childhood Educators leaving the field to earn a living wage elsewhere.

in response to BC’s implementation of full school day kindergarten for 5 year olds as well as to the promise made by our gov-

• New legislation….a BC Early Care and Learning Act • A new home for child care in the Ministry of Education • A new role for Boards of Education

The cost of childcare is high often being the second highest cost for a family after housing. The provincial median monthly cost for infant/toddler care is $875; for preschool care, ages 2.5-5 years is $665; and for school-age care is $300. Unlike other community services, childcare is primarily a user fee system. The fees families pay account for 70-80% of a child care centre’s revenue. The remaining revenues come from small government grants and fundraising. It can cost a family as much or more to pay for childcare from birth to school-age entry as it does to pay for university degree program. There are no RESPs (registered education savings plan) for childcare!

Here in BC two non-profit grassroots organizations, the Early Childhood Educators of BC and the Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC have come together to propose to our government an innovative and ambitious way forward in terms of the childcare crisis. The Community Plan for a Public System of Integrated Early Care and Learning is

• Current policies and approaches are not working. The highlights of the Plan include:

In BC there are licensed child care spaces for only about 20 per cent of children. That is only 1 in 5 regulated spaces!

Early Childhood Educators who generally have 2 years of college- training are underpaid and typically have no health or pension benefits. After 5 years of working in the field approximately 50 per cent leave the field to find better paying jobs.

• Children and families need, and have the right to, quality care and learning; and

• The development of Early Years Centre Networks • Enhancing Kindergarten and Grade one • Strengthening School-age Care and Family Child Care • Developing the Early Childhood Educators’ workforce • Lower fees - $10 per full day/ $7 for half day and free for families with a yearly income of less than $40,000 The majority of Early Childhood Educators support this plan and we are asking the Campbell River and area community members for their support too. Yes, this plan is ambitious and it may take a generation to come to fruition. We need to start now so future families can have a system which supports them.

Summer Travel Survival – Nutritionally Speaking Summer vacation time often means family trips. Eating well and keeping children happy on the road can be a challenge! Here are some ideas to help you meet the challenge. For the LONG car ride – keep quick snacks on hand to handle the “hungries”. Fresh fruits and veggies make easy snacks on the road. Try apples, plums, berries, grapes, baby carrots, sugar snap peas, pepper strips, cucum-

ber slices or cherry tomatoes. Small cans of fruit in its own juice or applesauce. Crackers, rice cakes, bagels, and muffins are easy to carry Nut (or pea) butters or individual pull-top tins of tuna provide the makings for sandwiches, spreads or dips. Nuts, seeds and dried fruits are easy to pack and keep in the car. Water for thirst. Give everyone their own water bottle and make sure they use it. Thirst makes everyone a little edgy.

Summer Travel Choose individual packs of dry roasted nuts or seeds or dried fruits rather than chips or a chocolate bar (they melt in the car anyway). Replenish fluids – water quenches thirst better than sweetened beverages or juice.

A small grocery store or farm stand will have fruits and vegetables to replenish your stocks. Lunch or dinner in the fast food lane – smart choices are available. Try the grilled chicken breast sandwich or a veggie or chicken wrap.

Baked potatoes with broccoli, chili or salsa are a great quick meal. Look for sandwich places that make to order. Try the turkey or vegetarian choice (go light on the sauce) and lots of veggies. Pizza is a good choice. Try the veggie pizza with half the cheese and lots of veggies. Choose milk or 100% fruit or vegetable juices for your beverage. Include activities in your stops. Don’t fall into the trap of stopping only for meals – this means you are just sitting somewhere other than the car. Instead plan stops where you can walk or swim or play ball. Everyone will feel better. Meet the nutrition challenge – have a safe, happy, healthy summer trip!
