Mayor keeps up war of words on staff KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Mayor Walter Jakeway says city hall is wasting taxpayers’ money. Jakeway, the keynote speaker at the noon hour Rotary Club’s weekly luncheon, had some tough words for senior city staff. “City hall is an example of how they’re doing it in the least effective way,” Jakeway told Rotarians gathered at the Discovery Inn Wednesday afternoon. “City staff say how hard they’re working; do I care how hard they’re working? No, I don’t, if the results aren’t there. “Wasting hard-earned taxpayers’ money is not acceptable to me,” Jakeway continued. “I didn’t run to leave things how they are, I ran to shake it up.” Jakeway, who was elected mayor last November, ran his election campaign on a zero per cent tax increase platform. After council chose last month to increase residential property taxes by 13.6 per cent, Jakeway advocated for a public tax revolt. Continued on A4

Local contractors watch and learn during an oil clean-up training exercise on Wednesday at Menzies Bay. Here, a boom and skimmer are deployed.

Oil spill responders train in fast-moving waters funnel through the Narrows creating huge whirlpools and several other hazards. “You can just imagine how difficult it would be to clean up oil off the beaches in Seymour Narrows,” says Donovan who works for Sea Romer Marine Services. It’s not hard to imagine the devastation an oil spill could wreak on the whales, seal lions, seals, dolphins, sea birds and other wildlife that feed in the Narrows.

On the night of May 11, a cruise ship heading through Seymour Narrows ran across a long towline of aluminum containers used for fish farms. Several of the containers were damaged, but the accident could have potentially sunk the small tugboat resulting in leaks of oil, diesel fuel and environmentally-hazardous materials.

Spills: Hands-on learning conducted Continued from A1

there’s always the potential for an oil spill and that’s why the marine and logging-oriented contractors are here. They spent Tuesday in the classroom and Wednesday is handson day on the water. There are 22 contractors here for training provided by the Western Canada Marine Response Corporation. The corporation’s mandate is to ensure its members are prepared for hazardous spills on the water and to mitigate the impacts. This includes the protection of wildlife, economic and environmental sensitivities, and the safety of both the responders and the public. “We have equipment caches up and down the coast, including here in Campbell River,” says Chris O’Malley, the corporation’s operations supervisor for Vancouver Island. But the specialized equipment is useless if you don’t have locally-trained people who know how to use the booming gear, sea slugs, skimmers and other gear essential for clean-ups. Even still, the response time for a clean-up after an emergency in the Campbell River area is approximately 18 hours. In that time, the tides change and will carry oil into sensitive bays and onto beaches. That’s why the training includes placing diversion booms in front of an environmentally-sensitive lagoon that borders the Ripple Rock Trail. A little further south, another crew practices flushing the beach of oil using pressured sea water. It’s easier, explains one trainee, to collect oil off the water than from a rocky or sandy beach. On board the 120-foot Inlet Explorer landing craft, O’Malley directs the third crew on how to enclose a spill using floating booms and how to use a disc skimmer that collects floating oil in a sea slug bladder. “If it’s collecting too much water, that’s not good,” he tells the crew. “You have to adjust it so it’s just

skimming oil – all of it needs to be properly treated and if you’re collecting water, well, it gets expensive.” The Western Canada Marine Response Corporation is run by five major shareholders and receives funding through a bulk oil handling fee imposed on companies transporting oil through Canadian waters. It also has subscribers and charges fees for spill clean-ups. The organization was involved in cleanups following the

sinking of BC Ferries Queen of the North and the overturned barge which dumped logging equipment into the depths surrounding the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve. Training sessions on the Island also take place in Port Hardy, Nanaimo, Victoria and Port Alberni. “We’re here at Menzies Bay because of the fast-moving waters around here,” says O’Malley. “Training also gives us the opportunity to better

familiarize ourselves with the coast.” Accidents will occur and being ready is the key to minimizing damage as well as keeping clean-up costs down. It’s a situation Mike Murphy is a well-aware of as he works on the Inlet Transporter which carries fuel to logging camps, resorts and remote homes. “This is all relevant to us because that’s what we do, carry fuel,” he says.

Planning for Life Changes How do I donate my body to science?

Donating one’s body for anatomical study and/or research is an incredibly selÀess act. It is also a very important decision that should be carefully thought out, and whenever possible, discussed with your family ahead of time. Sandy Poelvoorde Unfortunately it isn’t uncommon to have a family come to a funeral home and ask to make donation arrangements after the death has occurred. In almost every case this is no longer a possibility. There are certain criteria that must be met both before, and after death in order for a donor to be accepted. First of all, forget every movie or TV program you have ever watched and harken back to every mundane biology class you ever sat through on a sunny Friday afternoon. Let’s face it; becoming the cell grouping on a slide doesn’t outwardly appear wildly exciting. However, it is a noble gesture and anyone who donates their body to science can expect digni¿ed treatment of their body by the receiving institution. (In our province that tends to be the Department of Cellular and Physiological Sciences at the University of British Columbia) It is understood that your body will be used as an invaluable research tool until all useful applications have been exhausted. At such time your body will be cremated at the University’s expense and returned to your legally authorized representative. There is no cost for this type of disposition; however, all arrangements for your donation must be made in advance of your death. Those under 30 years of age cannot donate their bodies to science, and even if you are of legal age, there is no guarantee what the location, or physical condition of your body will be after death. Even if you have arrangements in place with the University of British Columbia and have previously been accepted as a potential candidate, certain diseases can develop at a later time that may render your body inadmissible as a donor. Also, if the nature of your death has resulted in a much needed lifesaving organ transplant for a living donor recipient, your body will no longer be a suitable candidate for medical study. (Although saving a life is usually the objective for those who opt for donation of their bodies, so you can consider your ultimate goal was achieved!) It is for this reason, among others, that alternate arrangements to body donation need to always be considered. Like all good stories, the ¿nal chapter of your life can change…for more information, or to carry on the conversation, log on to www.GoCampbellRiver. com and see our blog.

It’s currently bogged down by the same old habits.” Jakeway said things will never change at city hall if the same senior city managers remain at the helm. “The 2012 Campbell River city budget process was a manipulative game, but that was to be expected,” Jakeway said. “The theme was to preserve the bureaucracy at all costs and to spend, spend, spend. “Change does not come easy. With my business training I really did not expect a zero per cent tax increase but I know it was achievable. “We can’t do it with these same people (at city hall).” During budget deliberations, some councillors championed trusting city staff to build a budget, but Jakeway questioned that tactic. He said staff played “a game of divide and conquer and council fell for it”, referring to council’s 4-3 split in a vote which led to adoption of the budget. Jakeway also accused

come hell or high water.” Jakeway then proceeded to list several expensive city projects that have had their share of controversy. He noted the threeyear anniversary of the Dogwood Street lights is quickly approaching and motorists still complain about the three-cycle system. “How about the toilets from hell by the Art Gallery ... $90,000 for two toilets, an outdoor lacrosse for (more than $300,000); a $13.5 million Highway 19A upgrade and the lanes are too narrow and Spirit Square at roughly $1.7 million,” Jakeway said. “I deal in facts, not emotions. I’m not unhappy or angry ... I know the system malfunctions.” Jakeway said his dream would be to have a “nimble” team to lead the city and boldly promote Campbell River to the world. He would also like to change how taxpayers pay their property taxes to allow them to pay in monthly instalments. The mayor also plans to improve the Campbellton area and tackle homelessness. Jakeway said if Campbell Riverites work to gether the city can improve and t h e e c o n o my w i l l rebound. “My theme is ‘Campbell River – Oceans of Opportunity.’ That’s on my business card.”

governments. “The current model is broken and as mayors we need to meet to discuss a collaborative approach to reversing the unsustainable trend that most municipalities are facing,” Watts said in a news release. “Municipalities provide the vast majority of the service in areas such as infrastructure while being given only eight cents out of every tax dollar to do it.” The timing of the caucus, which includes a steering committee of nine mayors, is significant. “With a provincial election coming up (in May 2013), it’s a great time to extract more responsibility from them (provincial government),” Jakeway said. The mayors’ caucus wants to create a round table with the premier to discuss public policy changes that affect municipal budgets and delivery of services as well as a round table to discuss aging infrastructure with participation from all three levels of government. Mayors are also calling for money to fund

the services that are downloaded onto local governments.The mayors also identified the following as areas that need to be addressed: ■ Changing the federal and provincial grant process to be m o re s u s t a i n abl e, accountable, quantifiable and allowing for long-term planning by local governments. ■ Allow the Municipal Auditor General to examine the financial

impacts of downloading on local governments. ■ Affirm the core service delivery of each order of government. ■ Re-design the cost sharing formula for significant infrastructure projects to reflect the tax revenue distribution. ■ Develop a co-ordinationed approach to how social services are delivered into a community

Local governments are treated like “children” by the province, says Mayor Walter Jakeway. That sentiment was more or less shared by several B.C. municipalities at a mayors’ meeting last week. Mayors from across B.C. met for the first time last week to discuss their communities’ struggles to provide services imposed on them by senior levels of government. A total of 86 mayors want to meet with Premier Christy Clark and the provincial cabinet to discuss more efficient use of existing resources to better address challenges facing residents, such as homelessness and public health. Mayor Walter Jakeway said the inaugural Mayors’ Caucus, held May 16-18 in Penticton, was an opportunity to get to know his counterparts across B.C. and discuss the financial pressures communities are under. “It was wonderful. I personally gave a business card to everyone,”

Jakeway said. “The purpose (of the caucus) is that mayors play a special role in local government and local gover nment doesn’t get the recognition it deserves from senior governments.” Jakeway said over the years, the provincial and federal governments have downloaded an increasing number of services onto local governments, without supplying the money needed to deliver those services. “The federal government doesn’t even recognize local governments,” Jakeway said. “They give everything to the provinces to hand down to the municipalities. “Local governments have been saddled with the costs,” Jakeway said. “Certainly the provincial government doesn’t treat municipalities fairly. They treat them more as children than as equals. Right now they’re kind of decreeing from above.” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts, who was instrumental in starting up the caucus, said B.C. communities need a new deal with senior

Drive Smart BC The Better Than Average Driver Have you ever met anyone who would admit to being less than a better than average driver? The next time you are having a casual conversation in a group ask this question. Changes are good that the majority of the people there will rate themselves as better than average, something that cannot be as half of us have to be less than average drivers. Why does this overconfidence occur? It’s something known as the optimism bias or comparative optimism. Both neuroscience and social science suggest that we are more optimistic than realistic. From the point of view of a driver, this may mean that it is unlikely that we will cause or be involved in a collision, that we can drink and drive safely or that we won’t get caught by police if we fail to follow the rules. The optimism bias can be positively influenced by training in situations where the driver perceives that risks can be controlled by their driving skills. In contrast, training has no influence over situations where the driver believes that circumstances are not in their control such as weather conditions or a sudden flat tire. Maybe this explains why I see four wheel drive vehicles pass by me at speed when traction is poor! Where does this all fit in with Canada’s Road Safety Week, May 14 to 21, 2012? It’s the perfect time to pay attention to what all the advertising is telling you about what happens when you make mistakes in high control situations. Maybe it will be a positive influence.

Cats, Carriers and Vets: Tips on making it easier to get your cat to the vet. #ONTRIBUTEDBY$R.AST Campbell River Veterinary Hospital Many cats are fearful of car rides and veterinary visits, which makes it harder for us to give them good medical care. It also makes it difďŹ cult for cat owners to decide to take their nervous cats to the veterinarian for routine care and may delay an examination for an illness. Cats can be trained to be much more comfortable with their carriers, cars, and the veterinary clinic. It takes a little preparation and patience, but will greatly improve your cat’s comfort level and your veterinarian’s ability to care for your pet. Here are some tips and links that will help you to help your cat! The steps to improved carrier behavior: s 3TARTCARRIERTRAINING as young as possible. 3TARTINGWHENTHEYARE kittens teaches your pet that the carrier is just another fun hiding place or play area rather than a conďŹ ned punishment space. Carriers that load from the top or especially those that come apart in the middle are helpful, as veterinarians can then take the top off and start their examination with the cat comfortably sitting in the bottom if needed. Put the carrier in a room that the cat likes to be in, perhaps in a sunny location, with a soft piece of bedding, to encourage exploration and voluntary use. s %NCOURAGEDAILYENTRY %VERYDAY PUTAPIECE of kibble or a treat in the carrier. When the cat eats it, calmly praise or pet him, and give him a few more treats. If the cat doesn’t take the treat right away, just walk away; if you try to persuade him, he will become suspicious! It may take a few days, but he should start to eat the treats,

although maybe when you are not watching. s 'RADUALLYCLOSETHE door. Once the cat happily goes into the carrier when you are around, gently close the door, give a treat, and open the door so that the cat does not feel trapped. s %XTENDTHEDOOR closure period. After several days of this, leave the door closed and walk out of the room for a few seconds before returning and giving another treat. 'RADUALLYWORKUPTO carrying the carrier to a different place in the house. s "EGINCARRIDES/VER days to weeks, move on to placing the carrier in the car, then short car rides, then a ride to your veterinary clinic for a treat and petting from staff, if your cat is comfortable with petting. If at any point your cat becomes

nervous and you see crouching, ears back, etc., go back a step and give treats until your cat is more comfortable with that level. s #OVERTHECARRIERWHEN traveling. When you start taking the carrier in the car, place a towel over it; cats usually feel safer this way. s !DDTOYS TREATSOR bedding into the carrier. If your cat has favorite toys, treats, bedding, or brushes, bring them to the clinic when you visit (both for training visits and an actual exam). This will give your cat more familiar things that he associates with good feelings. s #ONSIDERUSING Feliway, a pheromonal ANTI ANXIETYSPRAY just before traveling. When the time for the examination arrives, the routine will be familiar

Paws & Claws

and your cat will be much more comfortable. With especially nervous or suspicious cats, Feliway can help with the initial training period as well. 3OMECATS DESPITE your best efforts, still become scared of conďŹ nement or travel. In such instances, additional ANTI ANXIETYMEDICATIONS might be prescribed by your veterinarian to help alleviate the stress. 3OMEVIDEOSCANHELP you prepare.

Negotiations for new Cortes library halted location. However, the association’s most recent proposal falls outside the scope of Vancouver Island Regional Library’s (VIRL) calls for a lease opportunity. “Vancouver Island Regional Library has been unsuccessful over the past eighteen months with the Expression of Interest process for a new library on Cortes,” said a press release issued by the regional library on Tuesday. “Vancouver Island Regional

KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A new space for the Cortes library could be a long time coming after talks between the Vancouver Island Regional Library and a Cortes Island community group fell through this week. The regional library has been looking to rent a space for the library and had been in negotiations with the Southern Cortes Community Association since 2010 to find a new temporary

Library staff has not been authorized by the VIRL Board to negotiate outside the scope of the original Expression of Interest. Regretfully, negotiations with the Southern Cortes Community Association have therefore ceased.” Rosemary Bonanno, executive director of the Vancouver Island Regional Library, said a new request for proposals process will be recommended to the board at its meeting June 9 in Nanaimo. The library on Cor-

tes is housed in a mezzanine, with a daycare below. In 2010, the library board determined the floor does not meet the required load of 150 pounds per square foot. In 2011, the library’s collection of books was reduced to deal with the weight – a short-term fix. Since then, the re gional library has been working with the Southern Cor tes Community Association to find a new space. The search became more urgent earlier this month after

the regional library shut down the Cortes branch May 4 due to concerns the mezzanine floor could collapse under the weight of the library books. Noba Anderson, the Strathcona Regional District director representing Cortes Island, said the Southern Cortes Community Association has put in hundreds of hours of work negotiating with the regional library. “They’ve looked at building designs and financial options and

were working towards building their own building which they would then own and lease to VIRL,” Anderson said. “However, the financial requirements are too onerous for the Southern Cortes Community Association to take on.” Anderson said Vancouver Island Regional Library could at any time give two months notice to opt out of the lease. “ Yo u ’ re g o i n g t o have a hard time getting financing if your

tenant can opt out of the agreement at any time with two months notice,” Anderson said. “Ultimately it looks like it’s not going to lead to the community association building a new building but they could lease land to VIRL.” The hitch is there is no building available on Cortes to permanently house the library. Either way Vancouver Island Regional Library would need a new building, Anderson said.

Our View

Hydro rate announcement raises questions The provincial government has done a good thing in scaling back BC Hydro rate increases. The way it is doing so raises more questions than answers. On Tuesday, Energy Minister Rich Coleman announced that the government We say: Is this all was cancelling a B.C. Utilities hearing into Hydro just politics in the Commission rate increases, which have already name of heading been scaled back from the 50 per cent premium increases which off the NDP? were initially proposed about two years ago, under former premier Gordon Campbell. At that time, the rate increases were suggested to allow for introduction of the smart meter program,

purchase of private power under long-term contracts and major capital expenses, including turbine installation at several dams and other upgrades. When Coleman was named energy minister under new Premier Christy Clark, she asked that he review Hydro’s plans. The review said that the smart meter program should stay, and that other projects should proceed, but also said that rates didn’t need to go up as steeply. Hydro then asked for an eight per cent increase in 2012, 3.91 per cent in 2013 and 3.91 per cent in 2014. Planned increases had been 9.73 per cent each year. On Tuesday, Coleman said Hydro received an eight per cent increase in 2011 and a 3.91 per cent increase

in 2012, along with a rate rider of five per cent. The government is now saying it wants a 1.44 per cent increase in 2013, making the rate increase 17 per cent over three years. There was no word of what is planned in 2014 or beyond. It all raises these questions. Why is there a B.C. Utilities Commission, if the government can simply override its mandate and role? Perhaps the biggest question is this: Is this all politics, in preparation for the 2013 provincial election? Is the 2013 rate increase being kept artificially low on the expectation that the NDP will win government, as polls suggest? – Black Press

Letters To BC Salmon Farmers Association: A few weeks ago I saw you respond negatively to a letter asking for independent testing of your farmed salmon. Now two of your farms have tested positive for the highly contagious IHN virus, resulting in the ordered killing of your stocks. Without any proof you place the blame of your outbreaks entirely on wild fish, while deceptively proclaiming IHN won’t harm wild salmon. Those studies you quote were done on adult salmon, yet you don’t mention numerous studies showing IHN to be deadly to juvenile wild salmon, you know, the innocent ones now swimming past your filthy infected farms. While worlds leading labs are confirming a myriad of “European strain” diseases from store bought BC farmed salmon, you not only deny those findings as well, but arrogantly still refuse independent testing. This has many of us questioning your ethics or lack thereof. Since your main argument with independent lab results is about “foul play” or “contamination” why don’t you accompany your fish to the lab, just to make sure there’s no hanky panky going on? If your fish are as squeaky clean as you claim then there should be no problem. The public and wild salmon deserve to know.

Logger Mike spices up Sointula’s baseball weekend

Conversations with Mike By Paul Rudan

“Paul’s Balls! Now what kind of team name is that?” I was in Sointula for the annual May long weekend baseball tournament and this was a voice I hadn’t expected – or wanted – to hear, especially so far away from Campbell River. But there he was, Big Logger Mike, striding into our dugout. He was still dressed all in yellow and his cork boots kind of passed for cleats, but instead of his trusty axe, he carried a bat jauntily on his shoulder. The world’s biggest yellow baseball bat, I should add, but not quite as huge as the hockey stick in Duncan. His appearance on Malcolm Island caught me by surprise as well as the rest of the team who gawked in wonder until he got rolling again. “Come on Mr. Manager, speak up,

why the heck would you pick such a stupid name?” he asked, shaking his head in wonder. “You know, there are little kids who are going to hear this name and then ask why...” I couldn’t stand the ribbing much longer, “I didn’t pick the name! I was saddled with it!” I hollered. Big Mike laughed at me and the rest of the guys chuckled too. They knew that at least one of the all-pickup squads have funny names chosen by the Finn fishermen who are slightly better pranksters than they are ball players. I sighed, smiled and then muttered to Ross, the funny guy who named the team, “Next year we’re resurrecting the Clam Guns,” a previous team name that resulted in more shellfish jokes than I ever thought possible.

But, whatever, you just go with the flow in Sointula. We’re all here for the fun, the barbecued skewers of shrimp, oysters on the half-shell with hot sauce, and a few icy wobbly pops. Oh yeah, we’re also here to play ball...real baseball with wood bats, 90-foot-long base paths and overhand chuckers whose command of the strike zone is somewhat spotty. “Come on coach, where are you putting me in the line-up? It better be clean-up,” Big Mike ordered. How could I say no to an eight-foot man wagging a huge bat under my nose? So I batted Big Mike fourth and hoped he had at least once in life played ball. The first two batters went out, the third walked and then

Big Mike stepped up to the plate. The anticipation of the crowd was broken as I called for, “Time!” The ump complied as I walked out to the opposing pitcher and whispered, “Bean him with the first pitch and I’ll buy you a beer afterwards.” He smiled and plunked Logger Mike right in the backside. The ol’ logger winced just once and then smacked the next pitch clear over the centre field fence. It kept rising over the straight until it hit a black cloud which immediately burst and poured rain on Port McNeill. On sunny Sointula, Big Mike rounded the base paths, high-fived the rest of the team and ran straight to the beer garden. “My work is done here,” he pronounced. “Now get me a Lucky.”

Poison prevention is focus of Safe Kids Week Poisoning is the 4th leading cause of injury death and permanent total disability for Canadians of all ages. But children are most at risk, with an estimated half of all poison exposures occurring among children younger than five. That’s why the theme for this year’s Safe Kids Week Canada (May 28 – June 3) is “Out of Sight and Locked up Tight.” Did you know that medication is the leading cause of poisoning in children? Small amounts of adult medication can be fatal to a child. You can dispose

of your medications safely by returning them free-of-charge to any pharmacy. Other causes of poisonings are household cleaners and personal care products that were not safely stored or were taken out of their original containers. Check with your local recycling facility to find out where you

can safely dispose of hazardous household waste. “By removing expired and unneeded medications and hazardous product you will be making your home safer for everyone. However, dumping the product into the toilet or the garbage is not good for the environment we share and the

QUALITY FOODS CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY

Opportunity knocked in Campbell River eight years ago KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

T

hey say when one door closes, another one opens. Such was the case for two grocery stores eight years ago. When IGA shut its doors at Merecroft Village, Quality Foods saw an opportunity. “I think the company was looking for an opportunity for growth, and an opportunity presented itself with IGA closing,� said Cyriel DeBruyne, who has managed the Campbell River Quality Foods since it opened in October 2004. That made Campbell River the company’s ninth location. Since then, the store has thrived and played a prominent role in the community. When the store opened there were around 41 employees – today that number has

Campbell River Quality Foods manager Cyriel DeBruyne has seen the store take a leadership role in community support and customer service with sponsorships and promotions like the What’s in the Fridge contest currently running.

reached 55. And all the employees are local. “The company has a rule that you’re expected to pay taxes in the community you work in,� said DeBruyne, who relocated to Campbell River from Courtenay. “It keeps you involved in the community.� DeBruyne, whose resume includes assis-

tant store manager in Courtenay and prior to that, 13 years at Overwaitea, is extremely communityminded. For the last four years he has volunteered to be locked up in the Crime Stoppers’ Jail and Bail fundraiser. This year, he raised $1,520 through donations

from store employees and friends. In 2008, DeBruyne raised money for the SPCA through weight loss. He collected pledges for each pound he lost and at the end of the day raised $16,000 and lost 54 pounds through his own, exercise program. Quality Foods sponsors the Canada Day

fireworks every year. The first year the store donated $25,000 for the show. Since then, Quality Foods has partnered with the city and the Canada Day committee to fund the annual light display. “Out of all of our Quality Foods’, this is the largest (fireworks shows),� DeBruyne said. “At the time when we came in to town, there was an opportunity for us to keep the show going.� But the Canada Day support doesn’t end there. “We play a huge part in Canada Day because I think that’s where the heart and soul of the community is,� DeBruyne said. “The community investment is huge.� On July 1 Quality Foods sponsors the firefighters’ pancake breakfast, provides lunch for the carvers at the driftwood carving competition

in Wilow Point, and this year will sponsor KidsFest. The store has also sponsored the Salvation Army golf tournament for the past four years; is a sponsor for Cameryn’s Cause, which helps local families with sick children; and also sponsors the Campbell River Hospital Foundation. “We probably get 40 donation requests per month minimum,� DeBruyne said. “We try to say yes to everybody with a decent amount. “If it’s a local hockey team with a chance to go play in a tournament in Vancouver, we’ll help them out.� Quality Foods also wants to give back to its customers. Now until Father’s Day (June 17), Quality Foods is hosting What’s in the Fridge? A computer will randomly select a cus-

tomer as they come through to pay for groceries. That lucky shopper will receive a Quality Foods gift card for the amount of their groceries. They also are given an envelope with an unknown prize inside. The shopper can choose to either keep the envelope and what’s inside or risk it for the unknown prize. On Father’s Day, the $3,000 fridge will be given away. But perhaps the best thing about Quality Foods is the way the company treats its employees, DeBruyne said. “The biggest thing we do different is all employees, after 18 months, are eligible for benefits. It doesn’t matter if you’re a 20-hour part-time guy or a 36-hour guy,� he said. “And the fact it’s a young company, there’s lots of opportunity in the store.�

Quality Foods celebrates thirty years of excellence Owners of the Quality Food chain of grocery stores — Ken Schley, John Briuolo and Noel Hayward — have come a very long way since 1982. Thirty years ago, the trio revitalized a failing grocery business in Qualicum Beach and began innovating in ways the industry had not yet imagined. In fact, for these three decades, the trio and their dedicated employees have led the way among grocery stores throughout Canada.

Their willingness to embrace technology when others would not, and their dedication to staff — making Quality Foods a top employer in B.C. — has helped create a chain of Vancouver Islandbased grocery stores second to none. The young trio reopened a grocery store in Qualicum Beach on May 27, 1982, renaming it Qualicum Foods. The early ‘80s were tough, economically, but they had the support of suppliers, wholesalers

Then and now: Qualify Foods co-owners Noel Hayward, John Briuolo and Ken Schley celebrate their 30th anniversary in business this year.

and the community. Customer service was

a major focus for them, as they had to build a

base of support before they could even think of being able to add — or even afford – frills. By 1986, Qualicum Fo o d s w a s d o i n g well and looking for other opportunities to improve. When Bruce Robertson’s FoodMaster store in Parksville became available (they knew each other quite well, as independent stores) for a partnership that year, they jumped at it. After merging, they had to come up with a new name. Luckily, the

partners had had the forethought to register the name QF, and from there it was a simple matter of coming up with Quality Foods – the name that has become synonymous with the stores outside of Qualicum Beach. Into the early and mid-1990s, a vacant Nanaimo IGS grocery store became available to the partners. Adding this new store led relatively quickly to the acquiring of two more stores in Nanaimo, along with locations in

Nanoose Bay, Courtenay, Comox, Campbell River, Port Alber ni and Powell River. In all, QF has 11 stores, a headquarters and warehouse operation in Errington, and a company that employs around 800 people. Throughout their 30-year history, the partners remain involved in the community. They pump sponsorship dollars into local sports teams, community groups and events.

Items stolen range from rods and reels, downriggers, to fishing tackle. Owners are reminded to keep valuable fishing gear out of sight, locked up or removed from the boat once the day of fishing is done.

A local man is likely facing several charges after being involved in an

accident and then found drunk. The incident occurred Sunday, around 2 a.m., when RCMP were advised of a “large flash of light” and then a power outage in the Homewood Road area. When officers arrived they found a power pole had been sheared off by a pickup truck. That’s when a nearby resident called police to inform them that a man was grossly intoxicated and lying on porch. The impaired man turned out to be the registered owner of the pickup truck and, when approached by officers, he was unco-operative and became violent. The man was arrested and also found in possession of a controlled

substance. The man’s name was not released and charges are pending.

Quiet long weekend

Missing kids report proves false Police received a report of two girls, ages two and five, who went missing from a local daycare on May 15. Mounties were told the two children had somehow walked away. As a result, more than 10 police officers went looking for the girls along with volunteers from Campbell River Search and Rescue. However, all’s well that ends well. It was soon discovered that that the mother of the two girls had not dropped off the kids at the daycare.

The May long weekend proved to be a relatively uneventful for police. That may have been due to the rain as many campers cut their weekend short when the weather turned. Extra officers were on duty throughout the weekend. There were enhanced patrols as well as check-stops. Conservation Officers also made patrols at local lakes and campgrounds. Over the past week, RCMP responded to 304 calls. On Saturday, police dealt with two impaired drivers and issued a 24-hour prohibition.

Groveling didn’t help Kinsmen President Al Buxton when he appeared before Judge Gord “Hang ‘em High and Often” Hay. “Come on, I’ll pay a $250 fine,” Buxton pleaded, while wearing a convict-like striped shirt. But Judge Hay, who typically serves as an sergeant with Campbell River RCMP, appeared judicially indifferent as he reviewed Buxton’s record in the Crime Stoppers annual Jail and Bail fundraiser. “H’mm, looks like you paid a $250 fine the last time you were here,” said Hay, as Buxton’s face fell. “It doesn’t look like you learned your lesson.” Despite a lack of proper legal representation – although defence lawyer James Hormoth was seated nearby in shorts and a summer shirt – Buxton continued to plead his case as he handed over a letter of explanation: The bearer of this let-

dent Judy Shepley. She too was arrested, but her bail was much, much more. However, she managed to come up with $1,000, thanks to her co-workers and Vancouver Island Insurance Centres.

As for Buxton, while he rotted in jail, fellow Kinsmen cooked up burgers and foot-long hot dogs which they sold, raising approximately $800 for Crime Stoppers.

Principal’s Message

Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Week

This month we are focusing our thoughts on the 2011-2012 school year end and Graduation. You can be sure that the remainder of the year will be very busy, with many year-end activities. June exams are just around the corner (June 19 - 26th) and our grade twelve’s are becoming a larger focus as we head towards graduation night on June 27th. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have helped to make this a great year for our students. Our PAC parents are to be commended for their hard work throughout the year. Our PAC executive members Teresa Foy, Yolanda Addison and Karyn Rasmussen provided great service to Timberline by managing our gaming funds, and by being involved with matters relating to school policy and decision making. All of our PAC parents input has been much appreciated. Grad Parents, you have done an outstanding job of organizing an after grad party for the “Class of 2012”. Students have a magnificent evening of fun and friendship to look forward to, following the Commencement Ceremony. Thank you for the countless hours of planning and fundraising you have done for this special event. To our Timberline staff, as always you make each year a memorable learning experience for all of our students. It is with mixed emotions that we bid farewell to Joan Lihou, Patrick Lihou and Dan Stevenson as they transition into their new role as retirees this July. Finally, I would like to thank the community for supporting Timberline in so many ways; the Service Clubs, our local businesses, community coaches and countless others who are critical to the success of Timberline. Thanks again, we couldn’t do it without all of you and your support. – Kevin Harrison

What you need to know

This year we were able to host an Aboriginal Cultural Awareness week that led into our Stewardship Day. During the week we were fortunate to have many Aboriginal guest presenters share their knowledge with our students.

Power of the PAC Our educational community would like to acknowledge the tremendous support of the PAC (Parents’ Advisory Council) provides to every aspect of our school. Without its support we would not be able to offer the varied experiences for our students at Timberline. The PAC meets the second Wednesday of the month. Please consider joining the PAC to help make the students’ experience the best it can be.

Stewardship Day Timberline hosted its second annual Stewardship day. The morning was spent with the students engaged in a variety of workshops that were presented by our community partners. In the afternoon all students gave back to the community by doing good works throughout Campbell River.

Retirement wishes… In the coming weeks we will honour three staff members who have decided to retire: Dan Stevenson, Patrick Lihou and Joan Lihou. We celebrate your retirement!

A huge Thank You to Clay Carlson for all his hard work in co-ordinating the Stewardship day

A Campbell River man who was once homeless, has turned his ‘pay it forward’ deeds into a small business. Rory Clark first told his story to the Mirror last year. Last month, the Mirror caught up with Clark to see how he has been coping. The former logger suffered a back injury while on the job about seven years ago. He wound up addicted to painkillers and found himself homeless and hungry. The Salvation Army soup kitchen looked after Clark until he was able to get back on his feet.

nity’s generosity. After the update story on Clark’s landscaping ran in the Mirror April 27, he has been inundated with calls from people who read the story and want to hire him. “I’ve gotten a lot of feedback, everybody is really impressed,” Clark said. “I’m a celebrity now. I get calls from people I don’t even know.” The yard work is therapeutic for Clark and keeps him off drugs. It also gives him a sense of pride to make people happy. “Every day I try to do something nice to somebody, as long as I can get a smile on someone’s face,” Clark said. The work is so plentiful that Clark has now started his own business, Rory’s Uptown Garden Services. Clark will prune shrubs, plant flowers, cut the lawn, weed, make rock gardens, as well as wash cars, houses and motor homes. He charges $15 per hour for his work. “ T h e re ’s l o t s o f demand,” said Clark, who has not deserted his roots. Although he’s getting outside work now, Clark still tries to get down to Cedar Street every day, where he’s made a name for himself. “Everybody walks by and says it looks really good and clean around here now,” Clark said. “But the work never ends.” To book an appointment with Clark call (250) 202-7115 or (250) 287-8464.

Midget Bs split doubleheader with Victoria C a m p b e l l R ive r M i d g e t B Advanced Marine Power Lacrosse team has had a great run at their season so far. Current record of their league games are: seven wins and two losses. The long weekend games on May 19 provided a good venue for the Ravens to show their abilities in a double header against Victoria Esquimalt Eagles. The first game of the day was shortly after noon. The Victoria team was quick to open with a goal in the first minute of the game. By the end of the first five minutes the other team was up by two. The Ravens saw their game start to open up shortly after and the team was getting in the grove of passing the ball well and getting back on defence quickly. They started to close the gap with two first period goals by Lucas Marriot Spencer. First period ended 3-2 for the opposing team. Second period saw the Ravens tie the game with the only goal in that period scored by Colton Edwards who received a great pass from Steven Dykhusen. It would seem that the Ravens were gaining steam as the first goal in the third period put them ahead for the first time in the game. Nathan Hoff ’s first goal of the season was the product of much perseverance as the team started to put more shots on the Vic-Esquimalt Net. Half was through the third, Victoria scored. This left the Ravens looking to position themselves for a go ahead goal. But the Victoria team put one in the net with only 1:33 left in the game. With such a short amount of time on the clock, the Raven coaches quickly pulled their netminder and try to gain the goal with the extra runner. A bad bounce past the defence and Victoria put their final goal of the game in an empty net.

Although disheartened by the loss, the Ravens were feeling pretty good. The Vic-Esquimalt team had very few losses this season to date. The afternoon game saw some refreshed and energized Ravens take the floor. First goal of the afternoon game this time went to the Colton Edwards with an assist to Griffin Whyley. Ravens set the pace with that first goal and didn’t look back. The visiting team managed to respond to the first period goal and score was 1-1 by the end of the first period but Ravens were playing with their heads up. Second period saw the Victoria team make their first attack on the Ravens’ net and moved them up by one twice in the second period. Ravens Griffin Whyley and Ryan Smith responded each time by scoring on the opposing net. Third period was all Ravens. With the score 3-3 at the end of the second, the Ravens knew they had to pull ahead and after some words of wisdom from coaches Joe Whyley and Doug Robinson the players went full steam ahead. Tod Wellman steamrolled a couple of visitors on the floor before dropping the go ahead go into the net half way through the last period. Dayton Tatton added the reassurance, followed by Kyle Maximick. While the Ravens were already up by three goals they couldn’t help but cheer when teammate Griffin Whyley scored the seventh goal of the game with 0.9 seconds left on the clock. Dylan Sparling, Nathan Hoff and Selena Lasota’s aggressive defence during this match helped out the goaltender Bailey Robinson to keep things in the offensive mode. There was plenty to be glad about as the Ravens had given the Victoria Esquimalt Eagles their first loss of the season. Next game for the Midget B Ravens: May 27 at Howie Meeker

Bantams learning the ropes The Windsor Plywood Bantam Ravens played Juan de Fuca (aka Westshore) 1 on Sunday at Rod Brind’Amour arena. They enjoyed the benefits of a full bench of 17 runners for the game and kept their composure throughout. The Ravens proved they’ve been listening to the coaches during practice as they engaged the Westshore attackers. While on the penalty kill, Nolan Fair was able to run precious seconds off of the clock. And in the spirit of the best defence being a good offence, he then took it up the floor for a shot on goal but the Juan de Fuca (JDF) goalie

made a tremendous save. JDF scored a couple of quick goals just before the end of the first period to take a 2-0 lead into the first intermission. Many of these Ravens are still getting their bearings as they’re playing box lacrosse for the first time or after a long hiatus. Throughout the game they tried to do the simple things like setting picks to support the ball-carrier and getting the ball up the floor efficiently. They worked on improving their line changes and recognizing when to go/ not go for a change. In the second period, David Lavigne took on four JDF players on a rush but wasn’t quite

Kodie Borton suffered an equipment failure and had to leave the game in the second period. JDF kept the pressure on the Ravens and scored three goals to lead 5-0 at the end of the second. Rookie goalie Will McLean did his best to keep the Ravens in the game, making many good saves. One of the most spectacular came as JDF had three players in a mini-horseshoe in the Ravens’ crease…all alone. The ball reached them Continued on B2

The CRYSA U-15 Bluebacks played the U-15 Prospect Lake Lakers on Saturday, May 12th for the Island Cup Championship. It was glorious sunny morning in Nanaimo when the Bluebacks entered the turf to play the game. Coach Sandy White and Assistant coach Jeff Ostler had the boys pumped and ready to go right from the kick-of f. Most of the first half was played in the Bluebacks

offensive area and late in the first half, striker Dylan Sparling scored with a beautiful finish after stealing the soccer ball from a Lakers defenceman. The half finished intensely and with success for the Bluebacks. The pressure from the Lakers increased during the second half and the Bluebacks fought hard to keep the win. After 70 minutes of play a Bluebacks defender received a

penalty resulting in a penalty kick on goaltender, Jesse Kennedy. It was one of the few shots Jesse had had all game and the shot was low and skimmed by Kennedy to tie the game. The morale stayed high as the Bluebacks fans cheered and the boys played their best for the final 10 minutes. No goals were scored, bringing the team into five rounds of pen-

alty shots. Kennedy would have to show his skills...and he did. Five attempts on the net for each team and the game was still tied. A f t e r t wo m o r e rounds of penalty kicks, midfielder Dayton Tatton smoked the net with a deadly shot that soared past the Lakers’ outstretched hands and into the net and gave the Bluebacks the Island Cup Championship.

Bantams: Focus on learning Continued from A1 cleanly. The three amigos looked at each other to decide who would be the shooter while the Ravens scrambled to get back on defence. One pass to g et McLean to move followed by another pass then a wicked shot fired on goal, heading into the bottom corner…only to be denied by a huge kick-save. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch of the imagination to say that it seemed that JDF had more breakaways

in this game than the Ravens had shots on goal. Ultimately, McLean saved 52 out of 60 shots as JDF blanked the Ravens 8-0. Ian Hall, Reilly Doney, Max Nelson, Riley Wellman, Daniel Gilson, Owen Boyd, Andy Hunt, Dawson Brown, Jasper Osterhout-Code, Cole Gent, Connor Ludvigson, Nick Kool and Thomas Dunn all gave a tremendous effort but the Ravens just came up short on this day against the team cur-

rently in second place of the twelve-team B division. Coach Todd Fair is proud of the way the Windsor Plywood Bantam Ravens are competing to the final buzzer. As he said at the start of the season, this isn’t about W’s and L’s. The focus this season is on improvement and each player has a different area they need to work on. Ultimately they need to believe in themselves and each other

while continuing to learn some of the basic and finer points of the game. Their confidence will develop and strengthen over time. As long as they work hard, do their best and have fun, it just doesn’t matter what’s on the scoreboard. Ravens next home game is at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday May 27 at Rod Brind’Amour arena against Oceanside. Come and check out Canada’s national summer sport for yourself.

Campbell River Living Giving babies and moms in Sierra Leone their best chance KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

G

rowing up on a hobby farm, Jenna Falk saw her share of live births. But now in her adulthood, it’s not just animals she’s witnessed come into the world; she has also helped women deliver their own newborns. Soon Falk, 25, will use those skills to help save lives in Africa. Falk, a certified midwife from Black Creek, will lend her services to pregnant women in Sierra Leone for at least one year. Falk, who plans to leave Sept. 9, says there is a desperate need for help in the poverty-stricken country. “According to statistics, one in eight women will die either while pregnant, during childbirth or after childbirth,” Falk says. “And one in five babies die within the first month. Most of them are preventable, especially with the care of a trained provider during pregnancy.” That’s where Falk comes in. Her role is to help women with pre-natal care, such as taking vitamins and eating healthy, as well as to assist in the delivery of the baby. She will also have the opportunity to teach at a mid-wife training school, as well as work in a hospital built by UNICEF in 2011. “There’s only one

doctor, two mid-wives, and untrained volunteers working at the hospital,” Falk says. “They have a big need for staff, so we have an invite to work in the hospital.” Falk will be joined in Sierra Leone by her friend Kayla Hatch from Iowa. Falk met Hatch in the Philippines where the two were trained in midwifery at the Mercy Maternity Centre from August 2009 to August 2011. The centre is a charity birthing clinic and Falk received lots of handson training – she “caught” (midwives say the mom does the delivering) 88 babies. Hatch’s father started an orphanage in Pujehun, Sierra Leone in 2002. Hatch spent time in the country with her father and told Falk about the need in Sierra Leone for midwives. Falk says there are only 71-80 doctors in a country with a population of 6.5 million and in Sierra Leone, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t personally know someone who has died in child birth. The main causes of death are hemorrhaging, infection, hypertension, the baby getting stuck during child birth, and going into labour with conditions such as chronic malaria, parasites, and anemia. Falk expects her work in Sierra Leone to be challenging. She’s not sure what medical supplies, if any, the hospital can provide and she’s not

says. “Obviously we want to maintain our health so we have the strength and energy to be helpful to them but we don’t want to live in a castle when they’re living in huts.” As a midwife, Falk is responsible for the care of mom and baby during a normal pregnancy for nine months before the birth, during the birth, and then six weeks after birth. Continued on B6 Mid wife Jenna Falk is thrilled to hold two healthy babies, Haeley (left) and Josef, that she helped deliver during her mid wifery training at a charity clinic in the Philippines two years ago.

“It’s a job that brings a lot of joy,” Falk says. “Nursing was an interest also but to be there at the time of birth is such an honour, I really wanted to be a part of that.” Falk will be returning to her training clinic in the Philippines in June to brush up on her skills. Just prior to that, she’s hosting a Chocolate Extravaganza on June 1 to raise money for her work in Sierra Leone. The event takes place at River Heights Church (2201 Robert Lang Dr.) in Courtenay at 7 p.m. and includes chocolate fondue and other chocolate desserts. There will also be a silent auction, live music by a string quartet and and a short presentation from Falk about her upcoming journey. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from Falk Saturday when she presents a slideshow at the Campbell River Common with Total Change Ministries, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. or by calling Falk at (250) 337-8759.

An “early bird” garage sale fundraiser in Campbell River tomorrow will support Quadra Cat Rescue’s continued efforts to reduce the number of homeless cats and kittens.

The fundraiser garage sale will take place from 8 a.m. until noon at 770 Marina Boulevard (off Robron Road) in Campbell River – one of Quadra Cat Rescue’s foster homes. People who attend the garage sale will also have an opportunity to meet Shilo, one of last summer’s Quadra kittens that was placed in a foster home when she was weeks old and is now ready for adoption. Quadra Cat Rescue volunteers will also accept “pennies for paws” during the garage sale.

Trilliums prefer semi-shade and tend to have wet feet, so look for these beauties on moist forest floors, or alongside streambanks and riversides.

DAVID WILBERT HAY June 17th, 1913 May 22nd 2012 David passed way peacefully in his sleep at Campbell River Hospital the morning of May 22nd, just weeks short of his 99th birthday. He was preceded by his wife Marjorie in January 2001. He leaves to mourn his two sons : David and wife Anne (Campbell River) and Bruce and wife Cora (Shediac, N.B.) and extended Hay family members in the Maritimes. Grateful thanks to Dr Rob Ramsey and the staff of the third oor at C.R. Hospital for their care, caring and support, also the We Care and VIHA support staff who helped him live comfortably in his own home until his last 2 weeks. A memorial service and scattering of his ashes, as per David’s request, will take place at Ohope Beach New Zealand in October, a place he and Marjorie loved dearly.

FRIDAY, MAY 25, 2012 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

Campbell River Communities in Bloom won’t wilt Campbell River beautification efforts will continue throughout the community this spring and summer season, thanks to volunteers from the City’s Communities in Bloom committee. Campbell River residents are reminded to watch for news about the sixth annual garden contest, the continuing adopta-highway program, business beautification recognition opportunities, another round of the Great Curb Appeal Campaign and community workshops. Campbell River will also participate in Communities in Bloom this year, but as a non-

evaluated community. Communities in Bloom volunteers will be seeking community funding to assist their efforts, and have begun with a $3,000 grant from the Strathcona Regional District that will support the garden contest, which is expanding into Area D this year. The Communities in Bloom Committee remains committed to enhancing beautification efforts in Campbell River. Celebrating its 18th year, Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification. For more information about Communities in Bloom, call the City Parks Department at 250-286-7275
