Sub crew deals with death of senior sailor after diving accident HMCS Victoria will sail with temporary coxswain on board Erin McCracken News staff

Kenneth Randall sits in his studio apartment in Pembroke Mews, a new 25-unit rental building for low- to moderate-income adults, located on Government Street.

Giving a housing hand-up Pembroke Mews houses 25 lowwage earners Roszan Holmen News staff

’Tis the spring of affordable and supported housing. On Tuesday, the Greater Victoria Housing Society celebrated the completion and full occupation of its second housing project this season, with two more potentially in the works. Pembroke Mews, at the corner of Pembroke and Government streets, offers 25 bachelor and one-bedroom units to low-

income, working singles. The main floor – slated for commercial space – is owned by Knappett Projects, which constructed the building. Tenant Kenneth Randall, 24, moved into one of the bachelor pads in February, after a string of living situations which included couch surfing and a stint in the former Princess Mary restaurant in Vic West. The skateboarder works at Cabin 12, a restaurant often near the brink, whose dedicated staff put in a lot of volunteer hours to make it go, said Randall. Having a stable place to live as the restaurant went through a move made life a lot easier, he said. “When the roof is leaking (or

other things go wrong at home) you don’t realize how much it clouds your mind and affects you,” he said. He now pays $610 per month in rent. The City of Victoria contributed $250,000 to the project through its housing trust fund. At the announcement Tuesday, Mayor Dean Fortin called housing affordability the region’s biggest challenge. “We are willing to face these challenges,” he said. “It makes our city richer in so many ways.” The affordable housing project is just one in a series announced in short order.

The crew of Canada’s flagship submarine is feeling the loss of one of their own, who died following a recreational scuba-diving incident. Chief Petty Officer 1st class Richard Boileau, 47, who had gone diving with two friends in the Saanich Inlet near Bamberton on Saturday, is being remembered as an integral part of a very close 48-member team of submariners serving on HMCS Victoria. “We’re coping. You have to understand that we’re a very small crew, tightly knit, and therefore the loss of any of our crew members is very noticeable,” said Cmdr. Christopher Ellis, Victoria’s commanding officer. Ellis went with a military padre to Boileau’s Esquimalt home on Saturday to deliver the sad news to his wife, Brenda Lyall. They had been married for 26 years. As word spread about the tragedy, condolences have poured in from beyond submariner circles. “He had a far-reaching influence and was well-regarded,” Ellis said of his coxswain, who started in the military as a cook 28 years ago. Boileau joined HMCS Victoria last November. “It was not your typical job – that appealed to him,” Lyall said of her husband’s decision to join the submarine program. “He was not a sidelines kind of guy.” The avid diver leaves a grown son and daughter, two grandsons and a large extended family in Quebec.

The B.C. Coroners Service is working to determine the cause of death. Police do not suspect foul play. Two of Boileau’s friends, who were diving with him at the time, were taken to a decompression chamber after the dive Saturday afternoon, prompting coroner officials to consider the possibility that Boileau died from an air embolism (air bubbles in the blood stream). “What happens is, he gets into trouble while he’s on the dive, and as a result of getting into trouble, he ends up maybe rising too fast,” said Barb McLintock, spokesperson for the B.C. Coroners Service. “We still need to know what was going on that caused the problem in the first place.” Boileau’s “complex” scuba-diving gear will be examined by Canadian Coast Guard dive experts on the Lower Mainland, given that “there is always the possibility of a mechanical problem,” McLintock said. Starting next week, the coxswain of Halifax-based HMCS Corner Brook will fill in on Victoria for two months, until the position can be permanently filled. The boat is scheduled to sail for Hawaiian waters in mid-June, where it will take part in the multinational biennial Rim of the Pacific Exercise. emccracken@vicnews.com

By the numbers ■ There have been 17 scubadiving deaths in B.C. in the past five years, most of them off the coast of Vancouver Island, according to the B.C. Coroners Service. Causes of death range from diver error to faulty equipment to medical problems.

Officer’s attacker handed 10 years ‘Substantial risk’ that Guy Séguin may attack police officer 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 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 allegedy received from Victoria police and a provincial sheriff in 2009, that never resulted in crimi-

nal charges. his shoulder. Part of “No one lifted a finmy (hearing) subger to protect me,” missions were that he said, wearing the there’s substantial same baggy, navy risk he might attack blue sweater and another police offiwhite dress shirt he cer when he gets out wore at his trial in of custody, because I March. “When I did don’t think that chip this incident, she was is going to go away.” protected.” Douglas Hunt’s It was never his mother, Mary, who Const.

ily 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

Cyclists win most Commuter Challenge matchups 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 entered beat their driving opponent 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. rholmen@vicnews.com

If you’ve ever had one of those feelings you can’t explain, this weekend offers up a workshop to help you develop your psychic abilities. It’s one of 20 workshops taking place at the third annual Energy Expo, organized by Victoriabased psychic Andrea Zonnis. The event, featuring 40 exhibitors, attracted 400 people last year, up from 100 the first year. Psychic ability is something very similar to music, Zonnis said. “We all have the capacity to be able to pick up and learn an instrument.� Similarly, she said, we all have psychic gifts, though some are more naturally inclined toward them. “Those would be the Mozarts.� More than just psychics, however, the two-day Energy Expo brings together practitioners of many kinds, including shamans, cranial sacral therapists, holistic healers and more. The commonality, Zonnis said, is “connecting the mind and the body through spirit – knowing that everyone can heal themselves through the power of their mind.� For people who are seeking out a practitioner, using discern-

OUR VIEW

Fire dispatch needs far thinking It 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?

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. – Roszan Holmen is a reporter with the Victoria News. rholmen@vicnews.com

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

treatment, when our current marine-based sewage treatment system is working well, is sustainable and actually produces no sewage sludge and few greenhouse gases. John Newcomb Saanich

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. Nathaniel Poole Victoria

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

“YOU AND THE LAW” GIFT WITH STRINGS CAN BE A PROBLEM By Janice Mucalov, LL.B.

Sometimes a gift isn’t a gift. Consider this recent case decided by the BC Court of Appeal. When Mr. R died, he left 100 shares in the family’s private company to each of his three children – David and his two sisters. David managed the company for several years. Then in 1996, for tax reasons, he gave his 100 shares to his mother as he planned to move to the U.S. He told her that he expected to receive the shares back when his circumstances changed, and she agreed. She later changed her will to reflect that the shares were to be left to him. David’s relationship with his two sisters subsequently deteriorated. He resigned as a director and manager of the company. In 2005, David met his mother and a family friend for dinner. His mother had told him she had no will and planned to make one, and he was concerned that she’d forgotten about her promise to give the shares back to him and the will she’d made reflecting this promise. So he persuaded his mother to sign a document immediately gifting him her shares in the company. That document was sent to the company’s lawyer. But before anything was done to complete the share transfer in the company records, the mother (who had since obtained independent legal advice at the request of one daughter) signed a document revoking the gift and sent it to the company’s lawyer. Confronted by conflicting instructions, the company lawyer didn’t take any steps to

complete the share transfer. David’s sisters later arranged to have the company sell a building it owned for $1,685,000. David sued, claiming (among other things) that he was entitled to his mother’s shares, being one-third of the total issued – which would allow him to share in the net proceeds of the sale of the company’s building. As has long been the law, the court decided that a gift, once absolutely made, cannot also be conditional on being given back later. A person who receives a gift is free to deal with it as they see fit. So when David transferred the shares to his mother, they belonged to her. He signed a share transfer document, the shares were registered in his mother’s name in the company’s share register, and the court inferred that the necessary directors’ resolutions (approving the transfer) were passed. Nothing further needed to be done to “perfect” or complete the gift. The situation was different, however, with the “gift-back” document his mother signed. A gift involves an intent to give. But for a gift to be completed, there must also be complete delivery or transfer of the gifted property. In this case, some of those steps didn’t occur. The result was that the purported gift to David was incomplete. David lost his case, except for his right to claim management fees, if he could prove he was owed any. If you have a dispute involving a share, business or property transaction that you can’t resolve, consult your lawyer.

A 1931 Ford Model A truck was the first to ceremoniously pull into the reopened drive-in last Saturday at Paul’s Motor Inn. Paul’s has brought car-hop service back for the summer on weekends as a way to celebrate the restaurant’s 60th anniversary. The original drive-in closed in 1972, but the restaurant, with its retro style still clearly visible through big windows facing Douglas Street, has operated at the front of the motel since then. Some of the original carhops were brought back for the reopening on Saturday. The event proved so popular that the restaurant ran out of

hamburger and fries and was forced to shut down three hours earlier than it planned. The closure back in 1972 predates the birth of the new drive-in staff. During their interview for the job, the first question they faced from general manager Michael King was ‘What’s a car hop?’ “A lot of them didn’t know what it was,” King said. The drive-in has 17 parking stalls and five picnic tables. “If it takes off and there’s enough call for it, we’ll do it again next summer,” said King. The drive-in is open for carhop service from 4 to 11 p.m. Fridays, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays until Sept. 30. rholmen@vicnews.com

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

Rhonda Brown remembers when a group of 18 elementary school students got off the bus before their first session of hockey at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre. Chaos ruled, recalls Brown, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Victoria, which organizes an on-ice mentoring program for children age seven to 11. “Literally, they couldn’t keep their hands off each other and were in each other’s space,” she says. “You put them on the ice and it was like they were learning to walk again.” The students came into the 12-week program with differing physical abilities and attitudes. Brown says the playing field was definitely levelled given that few, if any of the children had ever worn hockey equipment, let alone been on the ice. “When we started, they couldn’t make it from one end to the other without collapsing from exhaustion. By the end of the 12 weeks, it was amazing to see the progression in the kids. By the end they were respectful of each other, working together, passing to each other.” The program aims to boost children’s self-esteem and develop teamwork, elements

that will hopefully transfer into the classroom and other areas of their lives, Brown says. The mentoring hockey program is one of dozens of community programs whose participants are helped financially by the Greater Victoria chapter of Canadian Tire Jumpstart. Kim Reynhoudt, franchisee for the View Royal Canadian Tire store, which is hosting Jumpstart Day activities tomorrow (May 26), appreciates the work the charity does to help families in need in Greater Victoria and across Canada. “Things get so expensive these days,” he says. “It’s great to have an option where we can help kids get into programs, whether it’s soccer or other sports programs, where they can participate. It’s important to get kids active at a young age. It only helps them in the future.” In Greater Victoria, Jumpstart is comprised of reps from such

organizations as Big Brothers Big Sisters and the YM-YWCA, as well as Canadian Tire stores. Last year it raised more than $95,000, money that helped about 1,200 children play soccer or hockey, have the proper equipment, or enjoy experiences they might not have otherwise. “One thing I like about Jumpstart is 100 per cent of the money raised in the community stays in the community,” Reynhoudt says. editor@vicnews.com

Help sought for contamination assessment Esquimalt’s town square site part of proposal Erin McCracken News staff

Esquimalt is seeking outside funding to help cover the cost of assessing contamination levels near the municipal square. Council has given the green light to staff to apply for $50,000

from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities that would offset the $125,000 brownfield evaluation. The municipality plans to chip in $75,000. The assessment would be done on a large patch of land near the town square, where aging public works buildings were demolished last fall. The site was paved to prevent rainwater from further seeping through the contaminated soil and into groundwater. It is being used as a parking lot.

The environmental study “will tell us how badly contaminated (it is) and give us a remediation plan,” said Jeff Miller, Esquimalt director of engineering and public works. The municipality’s plan for the site, still in the concept stage, is to transform the town square into a residential-commercial development called the Esquimalt Village Project. The idea still needs input from the community and consent from council. emccracken@vicnews.com

The calm of a residential neighbourhood in Esquimalt was shattered when Victoria police conducted a takedown of four teenagers, one of whom appeared to be armed with a handgun. Several officers raced to the corner of Lyall and Joffre streets around 8 p.m. on May 16, after a resident witnessed a group of youths “yelling at people and causing a disturbance,” including one who was wielding what looked like a firearm, said Victoria police Const. Mike Russell. Police seized an airsoft imitation gun found inside a 16-year-old boy’s hooded sweatshirt. The teens were lectured about the dangers of their actions, before being released to their parents. No criminal charges are being contemplated. “The incident highlights the dangers of replica and airsoft guns,” Russell said. “Police are forced to treat the risk as real until otherwise known.” emccracken@vicnews.com

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

school screenings. The full-length movie is being screened Fridays at 7 p.m. at the castle, 1050 Joan Cr., until June 8 and likely beyond, if demand calls for it. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Gold and Silver Coins Selling for Highest Prices in Over 30 Years Due to Weak Economy and It’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 it’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.

Here’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 – 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 your’re lucky you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun!

VICTORIA NEWS - Friday, April 27, 2012

UVic students out to design friendlier eco-car Budding engineers look to design a meaner, more powerful hybrid In a windowless cement bunker of a building on the north end of the University of Victoria campus, Stefan Kaban boots up a computer. On one of two screens is a computer-generated split image of a car travelling along a landscape. With a steering wheel attached to the computer table, a set of pedals on the floor and a stickshift at hand, the first question is: how do we rack up points in this game? “This is not a game,” says Kaban, a mechanical engineering grad student. “This is software.” It’s the first year of the design competition for EcoCar2, the three-year competition sponsored by the North American auto industry that aims to flush out talented, young, potential auto designers. It’s the second entry from UVic in the

competition – the first team finished up in early 2011. For that project, the transmission was modified on a 2009 Saturn Vue hybrid. Except for Kaban, all those team members have graduated from UVic. Nine of them are working in the automotive industry. Under the supervision of engineering chair, Zuomin Dong, this time around Kaban is leading a team of 20 volunteer undergraduates in re-jigging a 2013 Chevy Malibu donated by General Motors Canada. The overall mandate of the competition, which attracts teams from 16 universities across North America, is simple: how do you reduce the energy impact of a vehicle? Being a group of young men, UVic’s team focus is on increasing power in the hybrid Malibu. “Part of our challenge is that there are a lot of things you can do to design a car that uses very little fuel, but people have come to expect some comforts – features that if you took them away, would make it less attractive to sell,” Kaban says. Today’s hybrids are designed purely to reduce fuel consumption, he adds. The range for hybrid batteries is from

the rear of the car and one in the front – and bigger batteries. That is challenging in a car already designed for maximum use of space. Kaban and the team were keen to present the design they’ve been working on for the past eight months in the preliminary competition this week in Los Angeles. The plans are only on paper at the moment – physical changes to the Malibu will start this summer after considering judges’ recommendations. Kaban also notes there are other reasons for taking News staff part in the test. UVic mechanical engineering masters student “These (sponsors) are also Stefan Kaban, left, and fellow student team the people that will give you member Nicholas Basansky show off the interactive a job. You want to show them software for the EcoCar2 project. you’re capable of doing this work.” 60 to 150 kilometres between charges. To learn more about the EcoCar2 project The UVic team intends to increase that to go to ecocar2.uvic.ca. 350 km using two electric motors – one in editor@oakbaynews.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

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

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

Dreaming the big dream Former Oak Bay resident shopping feature-length film As a kid, Trevor Undi watched videos with his mom at his grandmother’s house. They worked their way through all of Alfred Hitchcock’s films and as many British mysteries as they could find. But one film in particular shaped Undi’s future: To Kill a Mockingbird. “It was before I had ever read the book,” Undi said from New York, “but it was definitely at this time where I really felt the weight of what cinema could be and the power of that medium of art.” He liked what the 1962 film – based on author Harper Lee’s novel about a girl’s observations of racial inequality in smalltown America – taught him about integrity. Undi, now 32, left Oak Bay High in Grade 12 without graduating and went to Vancouver to learn the movie business firsthand, by working in the industry. Starting as a production assistant, he worked his way up to associate producer, most recently on Henry’s Crime, starring Keanu Reeves. He now lives in New York and is drumming up funding for his first feature-length film. It’s an ambitious project that will use original music from a variety of artists to craft the world’s first visual mixtape. The Kymera Project will be “a collection of original narrativebased music video segments … woven together into an anthology film,” promo material states. Told against the backdrop of New York City, each individual video will tell a story about a connection between people based on circumstances and chance. Music videos started out being narrativedriven, but that has fallen by the wayside, he says. The Kymera Project will revive the narrative tradition and marry it with music. Undi has 11 producers on board, as well as a committed choreographer and cinematographer. Undi would like production to begin within a year,

but needs funding to do so. He is looking for support from his hometown to raise $80,000 for the project. “It’s giving some sort of pride of ownership to the community that I came from,” he said about what investors will get back from contributing to the project. Los Angeles-based comedian Todd Allen has known Undi since Grade 3 when they were both at Monterey elementary school. “He used to wear bright purple, green, and yellow cord pants,” Allen said of Undi, with a laugh. Allen would go to the movies with Undi and his mom, Romari. “He was obsessed with film and music. He had

British Invasion Continued from Pg. B1

ambulances available. Once the cars started arriving in Vancouver and Victoria, they started to sell like hotcakes. Deeley moved 1,250 Austin A40s in 1948 – the first year of production. Sales soared in 1949 with 3,274 Austin cars sold in B.C. In fact, the Austin outsold all other makes in that year. Sales went into the stratosphere in 1950 with a total of 5,186 Austin cars sold. They seemed to be everywhere and they were being imported by the shipload. In four years, total sales of Austin vehicles in British Columbia were worth $15 million to the 40 Austin dealers throughout the province. Deeley, the distributor, was also the most successful dealer selling one of every three Austin vehicles imported through sales outlets in Vancouver and Victoria. The Austin A40 was Britain’s No. 1 export product, earning $70 million in its first four years of production. The company was turning out a car every 44 seconds. For 10 days in August 1951, Fred Deeley held a giant Austin of England show in Vancouver’s Seaforth Amouries. The company sent an airplane load of executives over to set up and run the show. It was a hugely popular event showcasing cars, trucks and even an Austin ambulance. To heighten interest in the show, Mr. Deeley brought in a famous race car from England powered by a supercharged twin overhead cam engine. Austin cars were the most popular makes seen on the streets of both Vancouver and Victoria. But there was a dark day to come. On April 28, 1952, the Dutch ship Dongedyk caught fire in Vancouver harbor. The freighter was carrying 50 Austin A40 automobiles and light

trucks. The Vancouver fireboat showered salt water on the freighter to extinguish the fire. The water damaged some of the vehicles. On May 9, 22 of the most severely damaged Austin vehicles were loaded on a barge and taken out through English Bay to be dumped at the entrance to Howe Sound. Some valuable items like batteries and wheels had been stripped from the vehicles. The tugboat River Ace used a cable to pull the new vehicles off the barge. Photographer Robert O. Bentley captured the event with his historic shots now part of the Dominion Photo Studio collection in the Vancouver Public Library. A spokesperson for Austin of England, owner of the vehicles, was quoted in a Vancouver Sun story about the Austin car dump saying: “We don’t want anyone to have any doubt in his mind when he buys a car. We’re making sure no one claims his car is acting up because it was damaged in the fire.” A subsequent article written after a tugboat crew was spotted spending a day dragging over the spot warned people who may want to go fishing for a new car that “the legal situation is ticklish. The ownership is still vested with the company that had them dunked.” Austin continued to ship cars to Canada for next 25 years. The Austin Mini cars and later the Austin Marina were sold from 1972 to 1978. But the glory days of market dominance really ended for Austin with the introduction of the hardy, economical and reliable Volkswagen Beetle to Canada beginning in 1953. Then, in the mid 1960s, North American manufacturers introduced compact cars into the marketplace, further pushing Austin cars into the background.

On page B1: A barge loaded with 22 new Austin A40 cars is ready to take them to a watery grave in Vancouver’s English Bay on May 9, 1952.

2013 Spark packs technology and features into small price METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Chevrolet is taking the guesswork out of the car-buying process with a new, simpler approach to pricing and packaging for the 2013 Spark. When the mini car goes on sale later this year, Spark will be available in three well-equipped trim levels starting at $13,495 plus $1,500 destination. Spark is a sporty, fuel-efficient, fourpassenger, five-door hatch designed to

excite first-time car buyers and city dwellers with bold styling, attentiongrabbing colours – including Salsa, Jalapeno, Denim, Lemonade and Techno Pink – engaging driving dynamics, the personalized connectivity of MyLink, and the safety of 10 standard air bags. Spark also offers more passenger and cargo room than other mini cars such as the Fiat 500, smart fortwo and Scion IQ. Chevrolet MyLink in the Spark will include Stitcher Smart Radio apps.

Later in the model year, the recently introduced GogoLink – an embedded smartphone application that delivers full-function navigation including live traffic updates – will be available. Pricing for GogoLink will be announced later. Spark is the only car in its segment to provide the added value of a five-year, 160,000-kilometre powertrain warranty and the safety and security of OnStar.

Chevrolet has announced pricing for the 2013 Spark subcompact will start at $13,495 not included a $1,500 shipping fee. Spark goes on sale later this year.

918 Spyder prototypes begin testing Development of the Porsche super sports car enters next phase The Porsche 918 Spyder is on the road. Porsche has taken the driving trials of the super sports car of the future a step further with completion of the initial prototypes. The 918 Spyder is planned for production at the end of September 2013, with the first customer deliveries currently scheduled for late in 2013. The focus is on the interplay between the highly sophisticated individual drive components. The combination of combustion engine and two independent electric motors – one on the front axle and one in the drive line, acting on the rear wheels – poses completely new demands on the development of the operating

strategies. The super sports car is designed as a plug-in hybrid vehicle combining a high-performance combustion engine with cutting-edge electric motors for extraordinary performance: on the one hand, the dynamics of a racing machine boasting more than 770 hp, on the other hand, fuel consumption in the region of three litres per 100 kilometres. Moreover, Porsche is breaking yet more new ground with the technology demonstrator with spectacular solutions such as the full carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque with unit carrier, fully adaptive aerodynamics, adaptive rear-axle steering and the upward-venting “top pipes” exhaust system. In the process, the 918 Spyder is offering a glimpse of what Porsche Intelligent Performance may be capable of in future.

$30 Car Load Night!

S

Downtown

E

In an effort to live up to Western Speedway’s motto, “Number 1 in Family Fun,” this Saturday night will see something totally new: a special Car Load Night. For only $30 you can pack as many people into your vehicle as possible, again making Western Speedway the most affordable family fun in Victoria. The action will include the Richlock Rentals WILROC NonWing Sprint Cars, Island Series Stock Cars and two classes making their first appearances of the year – the vintage cars of the Old Time Racers Association, featuring cars from the ‘30s and ‘40s, and the 5/8-scale Dwarf Cars, powered by motorcycle engines. The WILROC Non-Wing Sprint Cars return for their second points race of the year after an outstanding opening race two weeks ago. Campbell River’s Mark Stuart picked up his first career Sprint Car victory in a terrific battle with Shawinigan Lake’s Jeff Bird and will be looking to make it two wins in a row. Both up-Island drivers can expect tough challenges from several drivers including Sidney’s Chris Root, who set fast time on opening night, and Rob Scott, a previous track champion in a variety of classes. Victoria drivers Ron French, the father-and-son team of Paul and Matt Verhagen, and Robbie Haslam should also be in action. Drivers expected to make their first starts of the year include Victoria’s Deter Lejeune and Courtenay’s Lance Wade. The Island Series Stock Cars will also make their second start of the season with Duncan’s Cody Aumen leading the way after picking up his first career win on opening night, in addition to

setting fast time. Dave Reside and Kyle Cottam, who finished second and third, will be looking to break into victory square this weekend. Former series champion Ryan Wade and Brian Clutchey are both hoping for better luck, while Daryl Crocker will debut his new car after arriving too late on opening night. In the Rookie-of-the-Year battle, 15-year-old Rhett Smith leads the way after his eighthplace finish opening night; other contenders Brandon Steen and Kevin Knight were involved in a lap 2 crash and both drivers finished well back in the field. The popular Old Time Racing Association cars resemble the first cars that raced at Western in the ‘50s and ‘60s and the drivers always put on a great show. Drivers expected to fight for the win include James Campbell, George Jenson, Tom Cinnamon and three sets of father-and-son teams: Joe and Stephen Dardengo, Roger and Kyle Beck, and James and Chris Miller. Up-Island drivers slated to compete are Nanaimo’s Larry Joyce, and Duncan’s Rich Bennett and Bob Martin. The Island Dwarf Car Club will race for the first time this year. 2011 champion Neil Sanger should be back but can expect a tough challenge from Jeremy Stevens, Jim Pridge, James Dorie, and Jim and Mike Meeres. Coming up June 2 at Western Speedway will be for The Q Demo Night, presented by the Goldstream News Gazette and featuring Demo Car and Truck action, Bombers and Mini Figure 8s. The gates open at 4:30 p.m., with qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6:30 p.m. For Western Speedway information, call 250-474-2151 or visit www.westernspeedway.net

Harley-Davidson Test Our Metal demo test rides It’s time to test ride a new 2012 Harley-Davidson motorcycle. With the new Twin Cam 103 powertrain as standard equipment on Softail, Touring, most Dyna motorcycles, and four new models: the Sportster Seventy-Two, Softail Slim, V Rod 10th Anniversary Edition, and the Dyna Switchback, riders won’t want to pass up one of the free Test Our Metal demo ride opportunities. The Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada-hosted Test Our Metal program has been offering riders the chance to experience the genuine feel of riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle for free for over 20 years.

anniversary of Harley-Davidson Motor Company in 2013, special 110th anniversary Harley-Davidson models will be available at the retailer-hosted Test Our Metal events, as of early September 2012. In continued support of troops, Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada is also proud to maintain the Test Our Metal program at selected military bases across Canada, allowing troops to enjoy test rides on the newest models of Harley-Davidson motorcycles on specific dates. The Test Our Metal events schedule can be found at www.harleycanada. com/demorides, or through the “demo ride” button on the main page of www.harleycanada.com

Unlicensed participants can either ride along as a passenger, or experience JUMPSTART at participating authorized HarleyDavidson Retailers. JUMPSTART is a stationary motorcycle, allowing aspiring Customers to learn how to start, shift, and twist the throttle on a fully-functioning motorcycle that does not move. The Test Our Metal program currently operates from coast to coast in Canada with approximately 140 scheduled demo dates hosted by authorized Harley-Davidson Retailers between April and October. Just over 10,500 individual participants take the opportunity to test ride HarleyDavidson motorcycles for free each season. As a prelude to the upcoming 110th

smart intends to market the escooter (left) by 2014 with the ebike (right) becoming available this summer.

smart continues its mobility concept: market launch for the escooter in 2014 METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

smart will launch the escooter on the market in 2014. The fully electric escooter will be premiered within the next two years. The design of the escooter study is being developed and refined further. For smart, this is the next logical step in implementing its comprehensive concept for future urban mobility. Back in 2010, smart unveiled a comprehensive portfolio of electric products for urban transport at the Paris Motor Show. In addition to the smart fortwo electric drive as a coupe and a convertible, it includes the smart ebike and the escooter. smart is now consistently turning this concept into reality: the smart fortwo electric drive will be launched on the market in summer 2012, and delivery to customers of the first ebikes is just beginning. With its many innovative and trendsetting features, the new product will be unmistakably a genuine smart. Just like the ebike, the escooter will also be available for customers who (as yet) have no driver’s license for cars as a smart on two wheels.

A GM Canada test of driving techniques showed driving efficiently can save up to $1,200 a year.

The Brick furnitures stores with John Ellis, store manager.

Victoria’s Jeff and Patti Shultis were winners of a national contest from The Brick furniture stores, taking home $10,000 in gift cards from the store. The Brick’s “Flip It to Win” promotion ran through April, giving customers a chance to win instant prizes in the store and then enter online for the grand prize, says Victoria’s Douglas Street store manager John Ellis. The annual contest is hosted by about 150 Brick and Brick Mattress locations across Canada, including the two Victoria stores, on Douglas Street and in Langford. “We’re a small store compared to some others across the country so it’s pretty big (for us). As a store we thought it was really exciting then when the Shultises showed up the energy (was terrific), “Ellis says.

Smart driving could save $100 a month at the pump METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

With the summer now here, GM is reminding motorists to maintain their vehicles and drive smarter to help improve fuel efficiency and save money at the pump. To demonstrate 10 common mistakes drivers make that hurt their fuel efficiency, General Motors fuel economy engineers Ann Wenzlick and Beth Nunning drove identical Chevrolet Cruze LTs with a Natural Resources Canada rating of 7.8L/100km city and 5.2L/100km highway, on a typical workday commute. For the route, they drove both cars for 20

minutes, including city and highway driving as well as stopping for coffee. The results show that sweating the small stuff could save drivers as much as $100 a month in fuel costs. Wenzlick averaged 6.4L/100km (37 miles per US gallon) using efficient driving habits in a properly maintained Cruze. Driving inefficiently and ignoring common maintenance, Nunning managed only 11.2L/100km (21 miles per US gallon). The difference means Nunning would get almost 400 fewer kilometres per tank of gas, while Wenzlick would save $100 a month – or $1,200 a year – assuming 20,000 kilometres and $1.29 per litre for gas.

Driving with cyclists: Stay safe on the road for Bike to Work Week BY KATE WELLS BC SENIOR DRIVERS / DRIVEWISE DRIVER TRAINING When many people on our roads today learned to drive, they didn’t have many other road users to share the road with. Today, road users can often include cyclists, pedestrians, skateboarders and others. Bike to Work Week is a popular province-wide campaign that includes communities all over British Columbia. It’s an exciting week that helps kick off “better weather” and above all exercise and recreation. However, it can be a difficult week for some drivers if they are not open to sharing the road with cyclists. There are rules of the road you need to know when you are sharing the road – rules that help

keep cyclists and drivers safe. Here are a few: 1. Shoulder check! By looking over your shoulder before entering traffic, moving to the right, before opening your door to exit your vehicle or any time you pull away from the curb you MUST shoulder check. 2. Be extra careful when passing other vehicles. Make sure you can see well ahead before you begin to pass. Check for cyclists. 3. Scan intersections BEFORE you enter them! Watch for cyclists making left turns in intersections and watch for cyclists riding through an intersection as you are about to make a left turn. Don’t assume cyclists are slow; many cyclists are fast and can travel the same speed as

vehicles. 4. Following distance – Allow plenty of room when following a cyclist. If a cyclist falls, you as a driver need to have space to avoid hitting the cyclist. 5. Allow side margins – To avoid side-swiping a cyclist, always allow space between you and the cyclist beside you. You are allowed to cross a single solid yellow line (provided it’s safe) to go around a cyclist. If you have the option, change lanes and drive in the lane away from the cyclist. Give the cyclist room! 6. Hand signals – An experienced cyclist will know the proper hand signals when they are turning or changing direction. Many drivers are not familiar with the correct signals. Here they are:

Right turn

Sign for stop

Left turn

7. Stay alert – This is not a time for texting, talking on your cell phone or anything else that divides your attention while you are driving. Things happen with only a split second to react. If you are not alert, tragedy can happen, especially with cyclists and pedestrians. SLOW DOWN!

Scorsese to produce Silver Ghost feature METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese is joining Lord Richard Attenborough and Anthony Haas to produce the feature film drama Silver Ghost. The project will be a co-production between Scorsese’s Sikelia Productions and Zuma Productions. Silver Ghost will tell the story of motoring pioneer Lord John Douglas-Scott Montagu of Beaulieu, his wife Cis and his secret love affair with his secretary and

“Silver Ghost is a most complex love story, not only between men and women, but men and machines. Set at the turn of the last century, it delineates the fascinating story of Charles Rolls and Henry Royce and the highly charged love affairs within the Montagu family.” Zuma Productions Ltd. was established to produce Silver Ghost and is headed by producer and creator of BAFTAnominated projects, Anthony Haas, together with his producing partner Richard Attenborough.

mistress, Eleanor Velasco Thornton. It also tells of John’s connection and friendships with Rolls-Royce founders Charles Rolls and Henry Royce and British artist and sculptor Charles Sykes. Eleanor was the inspiration for the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy mascot, designed by Sykes, that to this day adorns all RollsRoyce cars. “Martin Scorsese is a giant of the cinema and I am thrilled to be collaborating with Marty and Anthony,” said Lord Attenborough. “What a team to bring this extraordinary story to life.”

Silver Ghost is the name of a new movie about the famed Rolls-Royce car and the people involved, including Eleanor Thornton (above) who was the inspiration for the famed hood ornament, the Spirit of Ecstasy.
