Estevan eatery welcomes new owner Oak Bay restaurant retains spirit through ownership change Brittany Lee News staff

A local restaurateur is returning to his roots in Oak Bay. Jason Chan, 32, grew up in Oak Bay and continues to live in the municipality. So it was a no-brainer for the young man to find work close to home. Jason and his uncle, Barry Chan, who also resides in Oak Bay, recently purchased The Village Restaurant from owners Jesse and Daniel Blades. The Chans officially took over the business on May 16. The Village Restaurant, an all-day breakfast joint in Estevan Village, was started by the Blades brothers in fall 2006. Five-and-a-half years later, the restaurant continues to be a staple for Oak Bay residents, as a busy Thursday

morning rush shows. Inspired by a “Montreal/New York style Jewish deli,” the restaurant has been well received by locals, the brothers said. “The community in this area (of Estevan Village) and Oak Bay really picked up on that and they love it,” Daniel said. “It’s a touch of a niche market, but it’s really worked for us.” At the beginning of 2012, both Blades brothers felt like they wanted to take their lives in a new direction and decided it was time to sell their business. “As much as we love the restaurant and the business, it seemed incompatible with our new life goal(s),” Daniel said. Daniel, 34, will be moving to Japan with his family, while Jesse, 36, wants to eventually start a farm. “Ever since I was a young guy, (I) wanted to take on some farming,” Jesse said, adding that he does, however, have some learning to do first.

Victoria cop’s attempted murderer sentenced to 10 years in prison ‘Substantial risk’ that Guy Séguin may attack again: Crown counsel Erin McCracken News staff

Just before he was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in prison for the attempted murder of a Victoria police officer, Guy Hervé Séguin said his intent was not to kill. Justice Keith Bracken ruled that the 59-year-old homeless man must serve eight-and-a-half more years in jail. Séguin was credited with 18 months for time served since he was arrested Jan. 17, 2011 – the day he stabbed Const. Lane Douglas Hunt in downtown Victoria. The officer, then 24, was attacked as she was leaving a 7-Eleven convenience store at 816 Douglas St. She blocked Séguin’s blows, but not before suffering two superficial puncture wounds to her neck and deep cuts to her hands. “The victory here is not in the conviction or in the sentence or the length of the sentence,” Insp. Andrew Lacon, representing the Victoria Police Department, said following the sentencing hearing in B.C. Supreme Court. Douglas Hunt, who grew up in Oak Bay, did not attend

the proceedings. “The victory here happened Day 1 when Const. Hunt was attacked by Mr. Séguin, and through her own strength and courage, fought off that attack, which could have been far more serious.” Speaking publicly for the first time, Séguin said he only wanted to bring attention to beatings he received from Victoria police and a provincial sheriff in 2009, that never resulted in criminal charges. “No one lifted a finger to protect me,” he said, wearing the same baggy, navy blue sweater and white dress shirt he wore at his trial in March. “When I did this incident, she was protected.” It was never his intention to kill the officer, he said. “What I did there was a cry for help. “Again, I apologized for hurting her. I was put at the end of my rope.” Crown prosecutor Steve Fudge said outside the courthouse later that Séguin has shown compassion for the officer’s well-being. “But, having said that, he also said ‘the badge must die,’ and I think that’s an attitude he still has. “(Séguin) clearly has a chip on his shoulder. Part of my (hearing) submissions were that there’s substantial risk he might attack another police officer when he gets out of custody, because I don’t think that chip is going to go away.”

Douglas Hunt’s mother, Mary, who attended the sentencing, said Séguin’s apology was superficial because “he stood there in the prisoner’s box and it was all about him. Poor me, and that is not sincerely remorseful when you just talk about yourself. “That hurt.” In lobbying for a 10- to 12-year sentence, Fudge told the court that despite making a remarkable recovery, Douglas Hunt experiences nightmares, hyperawareness and concerns about her family in the aftermath of her attack – effects “that may never go away.” Defence lawyer Jordan Watt, who asked for an eight-year sentence, painted the life of his client as “average, productive and very normal” until 1998, when Séguin became unable to work after an injury. “Things started to collapse” with the death of his wife in 2004. He lost his home and became estranged from his two grown sons. He moved from Ontario to the Island, where he once worked, but was soon living in homeless shelters. When Séguin attacked Douglas Hunt, he was fuelled by fear of the police and “acted on impulse,” Watt said. Séguin has been ordered to provide a DNA sample and faces a lifetime ban from possessing firearms. emccracken@vicnews.com

Brittany Lee News staff

Get out your rubber duckies and help students at Oak Bay High School raise funds for the Bowker Creek Initiative. The 14th annual Rubber Ducky Race, organized by Oak Bay High’s Environment Club, is a family-friendly event featuring a rubber ducky race, games for kids, and creek clean-up. “It’s a combination of fun and also getting everyone in the community out, and raising awareness at the same time,” said Katie Hackett, an Oak Bay High student and one of the leaders of the Environment Club. Hackett, along with fellow club leader Niamh O’Reilly, were in charge of organizing this year’s event. They’re hoping for a bigger turnout than previous years in order to raise more funds for the initiative, Hackett said. The Environment Club aims to raise a total of $500 from the event to help restore the creek. Last year, the event raised $300, she said. Throughout the school year, the club has also held bake sales and sold calendars to raise funds for the initiative. “It’s important because it’s a local issue in Oak Bay,” Hackett said. Other organizations, such as the Dogwood Initiative, will also have booths set up on site. Hackett encourages people to come out to get involved and learn about other initiatives in the community. The event takes place on May 27 at St. Ann Pond,

Fire dispatch needs far thinking

I

t might seem like a no-brainer to have a single fire dispatch centre for all of Greater Victoria, but there is merit to having at least two facilities for the region. Right now the 13 municipalities that make up our metropolitan home are served by three centres dispatching firefighters to select municipalities. The issue is making news as Colwood and View Royal’s fire dispatch is relocated to the Saanich dispatch centre, which the departments say can better serve their needs than Langford, their former service provider. The switch means that Saanich, which recently upgraded its facility’s technology to ensure state-of-the-art reliability, now takes calls and sends them out to eight fire departments ranging from Oak Bay to North Saanich. Langford, which also boasts current technology, serves 16 jurisdictions, though most of those have relatively small fire departments. Clients include the Gulf Islands of Saturna Island and Salt Spring, as well as rural communities such as Shirley and Otter Point. A main reason why those departments chose Langford is due to the lower cost than Saanich. Both Colwood and View Royal will pay slightly more to contract Saanich, which is the largest municipality on the Island and requires a topend facility to meet its own needs. The move raises the question of whether the region is better served by moving all departments to a single dispatch centre. It’s a timely question too as the Capital Regional District proposes spending $100,000 to upgrade Langford dispatch service. It’s a worthwhile discussion, but one that needs to be considered over the long term. The Victoria dispatch centre, which just serves Victoria, is showing its age. In time, it makes sense for the city’s fire department to look to Saanich, which is the logical centre of the region and has the mass to best serve larger municipalities. But for the immediate future, it also makes sense to maintain Langford’s service so that it can provide an affordable alternative to smaller communities. What do you think?

ber 2010. The results were never released. Almost one year ago, I filed another Freedom of Information request to get a copy – but it turns out this is a highly-guarded document. My request has filtered through an official complaint process, a failed mediation, and is now headed for an official inquiry involving lawyers and everything. It turns out that track inspections are commissioned by Southern Railway, a private company that runs the trains on the E&N. Release of this information would be harmful to Southern’s business interests, according to the B.C. Safety Authority, which initially denied my request. Now here’s my common-sense question: if “business interests” are legitimate grounds to hide information about the safety of a bridge, then why on earth are we delegating these inspections to a private company? I’m not alone in calling for more transparency. A watchdog group called the E&N Railway Action Group has sprung up asking all these important questions, and is steering reporters to do the same. These days, my nagging suspicion tells me we won’t have a passenger train running by next year. Good thing I took my train ride while I still could. My partner and I filled our backpacks with camping gear and rode the rails to Deep Bay, where we spent the weekend swimming and basking. I hope it’s the kind of adventure Victorians can have again one day. rholmen@vicnews.com —Roszan Holmen is a reporter with the Victoria News.

More studies avoid action on LRT for region Re: Timing is right for transit study (Our View, May 11) Here we go again. When will we learn? Transit in this region has been studied to death over the past 30 years. We cannot learn from other cities and countries around the world. I see this as yet another delaying tactic instead of getting on with light-rail transit. If you’re serious about reducing auto traffic, then we must go with LRT. It has a proven record of being able to draw people

out of their cars and increase ridership of the transit system. There are many great examples of smallto medium-size cities in Europe that have shown the way on this issue. We should stop protracting and get to it. Have you seen what can be done with a little co-operation? Just look south to Portland and you will be amazed at their results. In Europe they are building new light-rail systems from $30 million to $35 million

a kilometre. Why can’t we do the same? They can also build and have a service up and running within two-and-a-half to three years, so why can’t we do the same? Why are we not looking at introducing trolley buses on some of our busiest transit routes and free up the diesel buses for the suburbs? Trolley buses have proven to draw more riders than their diesel counterparts. Why must we have to continue to breathe the air with pollution? Why can’t we lead by example?

It seems to me that all we can do is talk, talk, talk and nothing gets done as a result. Having visited many cities and countries in Europe, I find it is simply amazing what they can accomplish. Ridership in most cities there the size of Greater Victoria is at least double ours. It’s high time that we get on with building a streetcar and LRT line in Greater Victoria. Bill Macdonald Oak Bay

Readers respond: Sewage treatment, economic gap, deer advisors Details still outstanding with treatment plant Re: Millions spent, but no word from government on sewage treatment (News, May 18) So much is unclear about this land-based sewage treatment plant plus sludge energy centre: the siting, homeowner costs, fate of the sludge, etc. Why not use this time before the funding is confirmed to try to clarify the major outstanding issues? The biggest issue is that a comprehensive environmental impact assessment for both marine and land still needs to be done. Unfortunately, the Capital Regional District is obeying the dictate of the B.C. government and allowing this massive sewage plant to proceed, with only the minimum reporting under municipal sewage regulations. It is also avoiding an important B.C. Environmental Assessment Act impact report. Several Victoria marine scientists, engineers and public health doctors have expressed skepticism that the sewage plant will provide any measurable improvement to our marine environment, but that the sewage plant itself will produce thousands of tonnes of sludge and greenhouse gases. Everybody who owns or rents a toilet in the CRD sewage area may have to pay up to $500 a year for this land-based sewage

Liberals need to get into party mode Re: A new name for the B.C. Liberals (cartoon, May 18) I think if the B.C. Liberal Party is going to have any chance of reviving its political fortunes through a change of name, it has to be really bold and imaginative. For example, the party could start using seasonally-rotating names and call itself the St. Patrick’s Day Party for the spring, the Canada Day Party in the summer, the Halloween Party for the fall months and the New Year’s Eve Party in the winter. I would seriously consider voting for such a creatively rebranded party, but only if it hosted a giant bacchanalian bash for all of us on the grounds of the legislature at least once each season. Gordon Pollard Victoria

Economic gap widens with new EI policy Last year we saw an unprecedented uprising against economic inequality.

Suddenly people woke up to the fact that the wealthy were getting much wealthier, while the rest of us struggled. But for many, it was like railing against the tide: inequality and lack seem to be among those hidden forces that just happen. But they don’t. The Conservative government’s new EI bill is another example of how government has undermined equality in the name of fiscal prudence. Over and over the pattern is repeated: Cut back taxes on corporations and the wealthy, and then use the resulting budget shortfall as an excuse to cut social spending. Yet social programs are government’s most powerful tool for addressing inequality. When EI is harder to qualify for, more people slip economically and the equality gap widens. The federal government always resorts to the easy rhetoric of blame, implying that recipients of social programs are lazy bums, don’t want to work and are undeserving. What is also implied is that the ongoing tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations (another kind of social program) are somehow merited. The latest federal budget proves the Tories believe that the one per cent deserve economic assistance, while the rest of us just need a kick in the pants. And so inequality in Canada deepens.

Equal representation important in deer group Re: Bow hunter on deer group worries activists (News, May 18) An advisory group has the purpose of representing as many positions as possible within the constraints of its numbers, and it would be remiss of the Capital Regional District to not have “pro-cull” representation within the group. It strikes me as rather naïve of DeerSafe Victoria that they believe it would be OK for them to have a representative, yet they take issue with United Bowhunters having representation. The advisory committee is there to find solutions, and all angles need to be reviewed. Although not hunters ourselves, we have experienced damage and associated costs to our gardens from misplaced deer. We also have friends and family who are hunters and appreciate the culinary pleasures of venison and its low-fat, lowcholesterol benefits. As many will agree, we don’t wish to build a fence to protect our investment in beautifying our garden and our neighbourhood. We believe a regulated, organized cull is a viable, inexpensive solution to the problem. Wayne Roos View Royal

Province steers new safety standards for motorcyclists Bikers required to wear safety industry helmets and keep feet on floor board Brittany Lee News staff

Motorcyclists may want to check the decals on the back of their helmets and the placement of their passenger’s feet if they want to avoid hefty fines. Starting June 1, motorcyclists can face up to hundreds of dollars in fines if caught on the road without helmets that meet the province’s new safety requirements, and feet that hit the bike’s floor boards. Only helmets complying under the standards of the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), Snell Memorial Foundation 2005 or 2010, or United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) will be considered legal.

certification labels on helmets will be required. “The better protection you’re protecting your head (with), the greater chance that you have to survive,� said Oak Bay’s Acting Sgt. Angus Wagnell. Novelty helmets, known as skid lids, skill caps, or beanies, which were previously legal, don’t provide any actual protection, Wagnell added. “If you hit something head on, your flying off that bike at 50 km/hr, 80 km/hr on the highway, you’re going to want the best protection that you can (get).� The helmets required under the new regulation have “a rigid head covering with a strong, stiff outer shell and a crushable liner.� The stiff shell protects the head by distributing impact throughout the surface of the helmet, while the crushable liner absorbs energy of the impact. It’s a “no-brainer� to have safety improved equipment, said Insp. Ray Fast, head of the Island District Traffic

Services. “Even if it just saves one life or saves one person from a serious injury, I think, that’s a significant achievement because at the end of the day

Did you know? â–  In the past 5 years, in B.C. there were 203 motorcycle deaths. On Vancouver Island (under RCMP jurisdictions) there were 40. â–  Each year in B.C., there are approximately 2,200 crashes involving motorcyclists and about 42 deaths. â–  Motorcyclists are eight times more likely to be killed and more than 40 per cent more likely to be injured in a crash compared to other road users. â–  Helmet laws have been found to reduce fatalities by as much as 37 per cent.

that’s what we’d like to see,� Fast said. As well, motorcycle drivers and passengers are required to keep their feet on the bike’s foot pegs or floorboards. Children who cannot reach the foot rests will no longer be able to ride as passengers. If a passenger is not tall enough to reach the floorboard, it probably isn’t safe for them to be on the bike, Wagnell said. “Part of it is for child safety,� he said. “The other part is to try and prevent stunt driving.� Motorcyclists found violating seat requirements, such as allowing passengers under the age of 16 to be unlawfully seated, will face up to $121 in fines or could have their bike impounded if found to be stunt driving. All helmet related offences will cost bikers up to $138. If a motorcyclist refuses to give their helmet to an officer when asked, a $276 fine will be issued.

Volunteers help cyclists make a Grape Escape The South Island’s biggest fundraiser for the MS Society prepares to pedal through the Cowichan Valley By Jennifer Blyth Black Press

The opportunity to be part of the biggest fundraising event of the year for the MS Society of Canada’s South Vancouver Island Chapter is a pretty powerful thing. To be able to take in some of the region’s most beautiful scenery while enjoying the enthusiasm of fellow volunteers and participants? Well, that makes volunteering for the MS Society’s Grape Escape all the sweeter! In fact, the ride has a lot going for it. “There are many events over the summer for volunteers to choose to support, but nothing like the experience a volunteer will get as a part of the MS Bike Tour ~ Cowichan Valley Grape Escape,” says Ashley Hodgins, Special Events & Volunteer Resources Coordinator, South Vancouver Island Chapter, noting that moving the date from the previous August to early July this year seems to have drawn even more interest than usual. “Plus, the event itself just has an amazing energy and our volunteers get to be part of making that happen. “I would say the majority of our volunteers are people who are connected to MS in some way and this is their way of showing the person they’re connected with that they care and they want to give back.” For others, volunteering provides an opportunity to gain valuable work skills. “Being a volunteer is a great introduction to the work of the Society as well as a way to build many different skills.” And volunteers’ contributions are crucial to the event’s success – typically the South

•The 2012 MS Bike Tour Cowichan Valley Grape Escape is being hosted for the first time at Shawnigan Lake School, meaning participants can enjoy many of the same stops, but via a new route.

The simple things in life can become more meaningful when illness or injury limits a person’s activities and abilities. For Esquimalt resident Robert Ganton, 61, chronic epilepsy rendered him unable to drive two years ago. Add in a successful battle with prostate cancer and it’s easy to see why he feels strongly about the importance of being able to spend lunchtimes with his wife, Gill. Daily during the week he takes the bus downtown to meet her for her lunch break. The couple generally goes for a walk, often through Beacon Hill Park. Having their beloved dog along, he says, would make that experience even better. Except B.C. Transit doesn’t allow leashed dogs on its buses, other than guide dogs for the visually impaired or other types of assistance, or “working” dogs. Passengers may carry dogs in containers, but Ganton doesn’t have a carrier. Told last month about the company’s rules, he took to the street to solicit signatures in support of a change in policy around dogs on buses. “I had a couple of people say

or in containers may travel on buses, but only during specific non-peak hours – morning and afternoon/evening commuting times are excluded. B.C. Transit spokesperson Meribeth Burton said the company has no plans to change its pets on the bus policy anytime soon. “It has everything to do with the safety and comfort and liability of our passengers and operators,” she said. “We’ve had people let us know (their feelings about dogs on buses) and I personally have received many calls saying ‘we support your (policy), B.C. Transit.’” The Gantons, whose older, larger dog had to be euthanised just last week at 16, have a car to take their pets to appointments on weekends, but that doesn’t help Robert during the week. He says other pet owners, such as the elderly, who either cannot drive or don’t have a vehicle would benefit from a change in Transit’s policy. He plans to continue collecting names and is looking for help with his campaign. Interested volunteers can call 250-361-9380 or send an email to gganton@shaw.ca. editor@vicnews.com

“It has everything to do with the safety and comfort and liability of our passengers and operators.” – B.C. Transit spokesperson Meribeth Burton Ganton has secured more than 200 signatures to date, including one from a woman who told him of Calgary’s policy. There, non-service dogs on a leash, or those in containers, may travel on buses and the light-rail transit system. Pet owners must pay full adult fare for any dogs other than service dogs. “I like the idea. The smaller dogs can sit on your lap and (for) the bigger dogs that take up a lot of space (owners) should pay for it. Everybody seems to get along with that,” Ganton said. His inquiry into the rules here was inspired during a trip to Toronto earlier this year, when he saw people bringing leashed dogs on the bus. Toronto Transit Commission rules state that dogs on leash

OAK BAY NEWS - Friday, May 25, 2012

Oak Bay works on community plan Over the next 18 months, Oak Bay will renew its Official Community Plan (OCP), giving residents and council an opportunity to chart a new course for the future of the community for the first time in 30 years. While the OCP renewal process will involve a professional external consultant to guide the work, the need for ongoing community input is also fundamental to the success of a new OCP, which is expected to be adopted by mayor and council in late 2013. Residents interested in volunteering their time as members of the OCP Project Advisory Committee have until June 6 to apply to the municipality. The purpose of the OCP Project Advisory Committee (OPAC) and senior staff is to guide the OCP review process, and to ensure that it is innovative, inclusive and tailored to the needs of the community. The OPAC will provide guidance to the consultant on matters of process.

SATURDAY, MAY 26 ONLY! THE REWARDS YOU WANT

Bike to Work Week nears More than 500 teams have registered for Bike to Work Week, happening May 28 to June 3. The annual challenge is in its 18th year in Greater Victoria. The event encourages commuters to cycle rather than drive to work for at least a week, and hopefully more. Wednesday’s commuter challenge this week saw cyclists and drivers face off in a friendly race from mutually agreed upon points outside the City of Victoria to see who arrived downtown sooner. Fifteen of the 20 cyclists participating beat their driving opponents to town, including one who reached the corner of Blanshard and Fort streets six minutes ahead, after starting in downtown Langford. There are also $30,000 in prizes for participants and “celebration stations” set up throughout the region at designated times. Check it out at www.biketowork.ca/victoria. editor@vicnews.com

The Friends of Brighton Avenue Walkway are seeking volunteers to help with removal of ivy plants between St. David Street and Transit Road in Oak Bay. “This is an area badly overgrown with ivy, and the group will work to restore (it) by removing invasive species and replacing them with native species,” said Carol Davies, one of the organizers. The group, led by Rick Marshall, started removing invasive plants along the Brighton Walkway, between Hamp-

Keys to the castle New documentary explores history of Craigdarroch Kyle Wells News staff

They set out to tell the story of a building, but instead the Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society found itself immersed in the history of a region, its people and a community. Victoria’s Castle is a new documentary produced to capture the history of the landmark and provide more historical context for the roughly 150,000 visitors that come through its doors each year. The film’s director, Robin Adair, who is also a society board member, set out initially to produce a 10 minute film on the castle, but as he dug into its history and began to unearth archival materials, he knew he needed room to let it breathe. “We uncovered all this fantastic stuff, so the thing started to really balloon and it turned into this opus,” Adair said. “There’s

lots of things that surprised me. It seemed like every day there was some new thing that was uncovered that I hadn’t expected.” Clocking in at just under an hour, the final film is a Ken Burns-style doc (think voiceovers and pans of photographs), but with some reenactment and a local feel. Interview footage is also incorporated, featuring notable figures associated with the castle’s history, including historian Pierre Burton, who graduated from Victoria College in 1937, and James K. Nesbitt, a journalist who founded the historical society in 1959, ensuring the site’s preservation. The film tells the story of the castle’s creation, along with its role in the community over the years, after serving as a home to the Dunsmuirs. The castle has stood as a military hospital, one of the original locations of Victoria College (the future UVic), school board offices and the Victoria Conservatory of Music. “Everything ties into a greater sense of community. It’s not just about the castle, it’s really about Victoria and our collective history,” said Elisabeth Hazell, man-

ager of operations and development. “This documentary, in particular, is a really excellent way for those who are interested in learning more about the city to do so.” Hazell did some of the voiceover work on the film and also acted in a couple of the reenactment scenes. She plays a Dunsmuir daughter in one scene, and a secretary during a scene set in the school board era of the castle. Dressed in costumes on loan from Langham Court Theatre, Hazell said it was a new and rewarding experience to be in the castle and dressed as those who lived there would have. “It’s very different from … walking around as an authority figure, to actually be in the space and be in costume.” As with Hazell’s experience, the documentary is intended to inspire viewers to see both the castle and Victoria as a whole in a new light and help them to tap into the stories and history of the area. “People say, ‘Oh well, in Europe they have real history, in Canada we don't really have history,’” Adair said. “It’s because we don’t know our history. To do this is a

Gold and Silver Coins Selling for Highest Prices in Over 30 Years Due to Weak Economy and Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Happening Right Here in Victoria!

By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER

ICC will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1968 and U.S. coins made before 1970. Those that bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at by a specialist. With the help of these ICC members, offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1968. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1968 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies. Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors also known as ICC. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If it is rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms, coin collector and ICC member. One ultra rare dime, an 1894S Barber, sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICC and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold, says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes can be worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on common coins made of silver. Helms explains that all U.S. half dollars, quarters and dimes made before 1970 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coins and any coin made before 1850. These coins always bring big premiums according to the ICC. Silver dollars are also very sought after nowadays. Other types of items the ICC will be purchasing during this event include U.S. currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreign coins are sought after and will be purchased.

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s How It Works: Also at this event anyone can sell their gold jewellery, dental gold or anything made of gold on the spot. Gold is currently trading at record high prices. Bring anything you think might be gold and the collectors will examine, test and price it for free. If you decide to sell, you will be paid on the spot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it has been an unknown fact that coin dealers have always paid more for jewellery and scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn brokers. So whether you have one coin you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If yourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun!

Segways on trails get another look Roszan Holmen News staff

Segways on the Goose will get another chance at life. Despite a staff recommendation to ban the use of the two-wheeled electric vehicles on regional trails such as the Galloping Goose, Capital Regional District

directors felt the issue deserved one more look. On May 9, the board was treated to a demonstration of the self-balancing device, on which riders stand to operate. Directors voted to send the issue back to the parks committee for another consideration. “For us it was a posi-

tive,” said Corinne Besler, who made the request. Besler and her husband own Segway Victoria. Right now, their customers include warehouse owners and security firms who want their staff to navigate their facilities more quickly. But for now, private

FAMILY PASSES

property is the only place Segways are legal. They don’t belong on roads or sidewalks, current rules state. Trails, however, could prove a possible network for Segways, should it win the approval of local or regional governments. “We would like to do tours,” Besler said. She’s in talks with the City of Victoria, hoping to gain permission to conduct Segway tours from Ogden Point to Clover Point, and along the Songhees Walkway. CRD parks staff, however, had concerns, as did board chair Geoff Young. “Technically speaking, the only way they could be used is somebody could drive them to the parking lot next to the Galloping Goose, ride along the Galloping Goose, then when they get to a street, turn

them off and drag them across the street,” he said. “The parks committee was of the view that that’s not going to happen and we’re really encouraging people to break the law.” While some CRD directors felt Segways could conflict with pedestrians on trails, others had more sympathy for the idea. “(Many felt that) if it were legal, and if the province were to legalize them, then they would be appropriate for use on the Goose,” Young said. Still to be resolved is what golf cart drivers do to cross the street where roads run through courses. Since golf carts share a similar illegal status as Segways, the situation with the carts could prove instructive. rholmen@vicnews.com

Bays end year with Ryan Cup

IN BRIEF

Vikes’ Woodland tops at NAIA Saanich’s Megan Woodland is the 2012 NAIA women’s golf national champion. The third-year UVic Vike shot an even 73 on the Link Hills Golf and Country Club course in Greeneville, Tenn. last week to win the title by one stroke. The Vikes host the Canadian university/ college championship, May 29 to June 1 at Cordova Bay Golf Course.

Lambrick Park undefeated streak ends in city final Travis Paterson News staff

It’s a bittersweet finale for the Oak Bay Bays soccer team, but the girls will take it. The Bays won the Ryan Cup as city champions with a 3-0 win over the Lambrick Park Lions on Tuesday. Scoring for Oak Bay were Megan Kivvel, Sanja Dodos and Shannon Bennett. The win ends a tough run for Oak Bay, which lost the bronze medal game to Belmont, 2-1, at the AAA Island championships in Campbell River last week. The loss kept the Bays out of the upcoming AAA provincial finals, May 29 to June 2 at Fleetwood Park in Surrey. Yet here in town, the Bays have earned a second Ryan Cup trophy in as many years, including a semifinal defeat of the reigning AAA provincial champions Claremont Spartans. The Bays also gave Lambrick its first loss of the season. “It’s our second trophy in a row so we’re happy with that but we’d like to have represented the city at provincials,” said Bays captain Elise Butler. The Grade 11 student is the backbone of the Bays defence, and was part of the Bays 2011 Ryan Cup win over the Glenlyon Norfolk Gryphons as a Grade 10 student. As one of the premier soccer players in her age group, Butler played with the Gorge FC premier women this winter season and is currently with the Peninsula Co-op wom-

Rink of Dreams nets $84K Don Denton/News staff

Oak Bay players celebrate after their first goal as Lambrick Park’s Marisa London, No. 2, reacts during the 2012 Ryan Cup at UVic on Tuesday (May 22). Oak Bay won 3-0, but Lambrick will carry on in the AA provincials. The Ryan Cup was Oak Bay’s last game, having been eliminated from the provincial playoffs by Belmont in the AAA Island playoffs. en’s prospects team in the Pacific Coast Soccer League. One of Lambrick’s better scoring chances, a blast from Emma Entzminger, never made it to the net. It careened off Butler’s head instead. “We contained (Lambrick) well and shut down their offence,” Butler said. She also admitted Maddie Secco’s absence hurt the team, especially in the Island tournament. Secco, a Grade 12 player, couldn’t play due to commitments with Canada’s senior national women’s team. “Maddie’s our top scorer and a difference maker, but we came together today anyways,” Butler said. Coaching Lambrick Park is Melissa Orton, a 2009 grad who came to the team three weeks ago with fellow grad Lauren Goodmanson.

Orton and Goodmanson took over from teacher-coach Chris Lubinich, who stepped back as part of Saanich teacher’s protest to Bill 22. When Goodmanson, whose sister Sheridan is a Grade 12 player with the Lions, skipped town with the travel bug, Orton was left holding the clipboard on her own. “We were a little short on the bench, missing one player and dealing with an injury, but we just never clicked (in the Ryan Cup),” Orton said. “We’ve had it good this season but Oak Bay wanted it more (Tuesday). It’s good though, it prepares us for the higher-calibre teams we’ll face at provincials.” The AA girls soccer provincials are May 31 to June 2 in Kamloops. sports@vicnews.com

The results are in from the 2012 Rink of Dreams hockey marathon game for charity played at Bear Mountain Arena on March 23 and 24. A little over $84,000 was raised from participating hockey players, sponsors and other donors, and will go to the Island-based Help Fill a Dream Foundation. The event actually raised $42,000, which was matched by the Macquarie Foundation. It’s the second year of the event, which raised $104,000 last year, for a total of $188,000. Next year’s 24-hour Rink of Dreams charity game is scheduled for March 23 to 24.

Spartans draw stiff test against Barbarians in rugby playoffs High school rugby playoffs start Saturday Travis Paterson News staff

The Claremont Spartans will take the good over the bad from being ranked 15th going into the AAA high school boys provincial rugby championships. The first-round draw is a convenient one geographically, as the Spartans will play Saturday morning at Brentwood College. But facing the Oak Bay Barbarians, ranked second in B.C., is the challenge. “I guess we’ll take facing (No. 2) Oak Bay over (No. 1) Shawnigan,” said Phil Ohl. The Claremont teacher can’t help but watch from an arm’s length, in support of Saanich teachers having agreed to scale back extracurricular volunteer work to protest Bill 22. Ohl has reconstructed the Spartans senior boys rugby program in recent years, including organizing the Spartan Scrumfest, which has become the Island’s biggest annual high

school rugby tournament. Among the many parents and community coaches who’ve stepped up across the province is Nelson Lah with the Spartans. Raised on a South Pacific style of game in Singapore, Lah, whose son Nolen is a Grade 11 player with the Spartans, said he couldn’t stand by and let anything jeopardize the time already committed to the team. “Last year the junior team (made up of Grade 10s) won the city championship including beating (Oak Bay’s junior team) twice,” Lah said. The Spartans have strengthened their squad by facing top clubs Shawnigan Lake, Brentwood College, Cowichan secondary, Oak Bay High and St. Michaels University School, even if most losses were one sided. It showed in the final game of the school league’s regular season, said Lah, with a huge 20-19 win over the Reynolds Rogues, netting the Spartans a berth in the provincials. In their previous meeting, the Barbarians defeated the Spartans 38-0.

“We’re not looking past (Claremont) at all, it’s one game at a time for us,” said Barbarians coach Murray Allen. “Claremont are one of the bright lights this year, growing tremendously in the Tier 1 division with St. Michaels, (Oak Bay) and Glenlyon Norfolk School.”

Kicking off at 11 a.m. at Brentwood on Saturday are AAA teams Oak Bay versus Claremont, and AA teams Glenlyon (No. 4 seed) versus Ladysmith (No. 12), followed by another AA matchup, Esquimalt (No. 15) versus Brentwood College (No. 2) at 12:30 p.m.

Howard Russell Cup

Senior provincial wrap

Kimia Hamidi led the Oak Bay Barbarians to a 25-22 win over St. Michaels in the city’s AAA final, the Howard Russell Cup, last week. Hamidi kicked two of three try conversions and two penalties, including the winning kick in the final minutes of the game. “St. Michaels was much improved from the Boot Game and we expect a similar improvement from Claremont on Saturday,” Allen said.

The Velox Valkyries recently won the provincial championship trophy for premier women’s rugby, the Gordon Harris Memorial Cup, defeating Burnaby Lake 20-14. Velox’s win was one of four B.C. Rugby Union finals played at Klahanie Park in North Vancouver on May 12. Capilano upset first-place James Bay in the premier men’s Rounsefell Cup final, 22-21, while the Castaway Wanderers edged Meraloma 24-16 in the men’s Ceili’s Cup league (Div. 1) final. Kamloops Raiders beat the Velox Valhallians 38-29 in the men’s Provincewide Third Division final. sports@vicnews.com

Give them power. Give them confidence. Give them control.

GIVE THEM A PAPER ROUTE! A paper route is about so much more than money. These days kids want and need so many things. With a paper route they not only earn the money to buy those things, they also gain a new respect for themselves. They discover a new sense of confidence, power and control by having their very own job, making their own money and paying for their own games, phones and time with friends. All it takes is an hour or so after school Wednesday and Friday. And even better... there are no collections required.

It’s so easy to get started… call

Philanthropy a vital lesson for high school students in Vital Youth program

Grant Allocations

Representatives of the Victoria Foundation’s Vital Youth program presented a total of $17,684 in grants to 18 local charities earlier this month at a year-end awards night at the Canadian College of Performing Arts. The Vital Youth program provides students at seven schools (Belmont Secondary School, Frances Kelsey Secondary School, Oak Bay High School, Reynolds Secondary School, St. Michaels University School, Stelly’s Secondary School, Victoria High School) with hands-on experience in philanthropy and community development. “We really got to see the essence of philanthropy,” said Erinne Paisley, a Grade 9 student at Reynolds Secondary School who delivered her team’s presentation speech. “We all feel privileged to be part of the Vital Youth program and know that we will all continue in

our own ways to be philanthropists our entire lives.” Students participate through a leadership class or a youth advisory committee. Each project team is allotted $500 for their school’s endowment fund and $2,500 annually to distribute to federally registered charities on southern Vancouver Island, after using the Victoria’s Vital Signs® report to research community needs. Students research potential charities, conducting interviews and on-site visits. Each participant provides input and the team as a whole decides how to allocate the grant funds. “The size of the Vital Youth grants is relatively small but the impact of the program is unquestionably large,” said Victoria Foundation Board Chair Deirdre Roberts. “Students gain analytical skills and an appreciation
