Businesses caught in middle of teachers’ job action KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER

Emergency crews respond to a two-vehicle collision, in August 2005, at the intersection of Dogwood Street and Evergreen Road, before the new traffic lights were installed. More lights along Dogwood, coupled with a lighting pattern change in 2009, are thought to be the main reasons why accidents are decreasing along the city’s most dangerous stretch.

Irksome Dogwood lights are showing benefits Accidents at intersections decline on city’s most dangerous stretch PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The Dogwood Street lights are putting a damper on traffic accidents. New statistics provided by

ICBC show a decrease in the number of accidents all along the city’s most dangerous road, particularly since the new lighting scheme was implemented in 2009. “People are probably going to

hate to hear this, but since they changed the lights on Dogwood, we’ve been attending far less crashes at intersections,” said RCMP Const. Dave Dormuth, who’s been policing municipal traffic for almost a decade in Campbell River. Changes to the lighting pattern created a lot of grumbling amongst motorists, several of whom expressed their frustration mostly due to longer wait times at intersections as

well as lengthier line-ups. “Dogwood Street has now become a nightmare. Stop and start. Stop and start. Every light,” wrote Roy Moyer in a letter to the Mirror in June 2009. However, three years later, the start-and-stop routine appears to be having a positive effect and the numbers are there for everyone to see on ICBC’s interactive “crash map” webpage Continued on A3

Strathcona Park Lodge has fallen victim to teachers’ job action, says a director at the park. Dozens of employees are suffering from lost wages as revenues are down significantly due to cancellations from more than 40 per cent of schools that were booked into the lodge. “For more than 50 years the outdoor education centre has hosted school groups from across British Columbia,” said Jamie Boulding, co-executive director at Strathcona Park Lodge. “Thousands of school children gain a new appreciation for the outdoor world and learn valuable life skills every year. But this spring the lodge was quiet.” Fields trips were called off after teachers across B.C. voted in April to withdraw from extracurricular activities in protest of Bill 22 – government imposed legislation teachers say strips away their collective bargaining rights and allows for unmanageable Continued on A3

Dogwood: Blind left Teachers: 13 outdoor education groups speak out turns eliminated Continued from A1 (www.icbc.com/aboutICBC/news_room/ icbc_facts). “I reviewed all the data and it definitely shows a decrease in the number and the severity of accidents along Dogwood,” said Drew Hadfield, the city’s transportation manager. From 2006-’09, ICBC contributed $526,125 to improve the Dogwood corridor, particularly at the the nine lighted intersections from Merecroft Road and the Island Highway. This included the installation of lights at the Evergreen Road and 7th Avenue intersections, and two pedestrian-controlled crossing at Robron and Pinecrest Roads. But what really slowed down Dogwood traffic was the lighting pattern change in 2009. That’s when the northsouth, two-way flow was stopped. Instead, southbound traffic proceeded on the green light while northbound motorists waited at the red light, and vice-versa when the lights changed; the two-way traffic does continue on cross streets at intersections. It took several months to “tweak” the lights and adjust them to traffic volumes; and while you may never get the

class sizes. Now businesses are finding themselves caught in the middle of the bitter contract dispute between the BC Teachers’ Federation and the provincial government. More than 70 per cent of Strathcona’s business during the spring comes from B.C. public schools whose students learn valuable wilderness survival skills while at the lodge. But with teachers pulling out of voluntary activities, students are losing out on that opportunity. “This year half had to cancel, forcing the lodge into a tough financial situation,” Boulding said. “The other 50 per cent were able to come thanks to parent volunteers filling in for teachers. Those tend to be schools in more affluent neighbourhoods. “In lower income areas, parents can’t afford to take a week off work. And yet it’s those schools that gain the most from time at Strathcona and other out of school activities.” Elaine Thompson, acting president of the Campbell River District Teachers’ Association sympathizes with Boulding but at the same time there’s no alternative for teachers to send a message to the government, as Bill 22 prohibits teachers from striking.

public school students, and the withdrawal has had a harsh and immediate impact on our viability,” reads the letter. “In some cases losses or revenue in the hundreds of thousands of dollars have occurred and will occur if this ECA action goes on after the beginning of September.” Thompson said the teachers’ union is more than willing to go to the bargaining table but the Liberals are not making an effort to negotiate. “If there were any way we could get back to the bargaining table for some real free collective bargaining, the BCTF would jump at the opportunity, no matter when that was offered,” she said. “There have been no definite dates set by the BCTF to meet or make decisions regarding next school.” Thompson expects a contract will be imposed on teachers at the end of August to avoid any teacher job action in the upcoming school year. Teachers and the government began bargaining last spring. Things turned sour in September 2011 when teachers pulled out of writing report cards and refrained from supervising students outside of the classroom. Teachers went on a three-day strike in March before they were legislated back to work by Bill 22.

“The withdrawal of participation in voluntary/extracurricular activities was the last resort for teachers in an attempt to get the government to negotiate with us, instead of imposing legislation that will be devastating for the public school system,” Thompson said. “It was a very painful decision for teachers to make, but the only legal avenue left to use under Bill 22. “We feel very badly about the effects of this situation on such businesses as Strathcona Park Lodge. “ T h e y h ave p r o v i d e d extremely valuable programs to school children for decades.” Boulding said he’s not taking sides, he just wants the teachers’ union and the province to get to the bargaining table. And he’s not alone.

Council supports safe crack kits KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

T he debate over harm reduction strategies, such as needle exchange and safe injection sites, and whether they promote drug use surfaced in council chambers last week. Council listened to a presentation from AIDS Vancouver Island and the Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) asking for support for safer crack use kits. Dr. Charmaine Enns, Medical Health Officer with VIHA, said crack cocaine users are often neglected by society and are vulnerable to infectious disease. “Crack smokers have a very high prevalence of blisters, cuts and sores on their lips and

in their mouths from injury from the equipment they’re using to smoke crack,” she said. “They burn the linings of their lips and their mouth from hot glass or metal stems.” Enns showed slides of what crack smokers are using to get their fix, from a modified pill bottle to a re-configured insulin vial. “If someone is smoking crack, they will find any way that they can to smoke it,” she said. “If there is not a readily available stem and the brass screens ... they will make what they can – a pop can, a broken bottle, whatever they need to smoke crack.” The health authority plans to expand its harm reduction services at the Campbell River AIDS Vancouver

Island office by distributing kits which promote safer crack use with instruments such as glass stems, brass filters and rubber mouthpieces. The kits are already being circulated in major Canadian cities such as Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto, Halifax and Montreal. They’ve been distributed in Courtenay since December 2009, to the tune of 150 kits per month. They have also been distributed in Campbell River in the past. They are expected to soon make the rounds in Campbell River again. Enns admitted VIHA did not need council’s support to distribute the kits but still wanted the city’s endorsement. After listening to

Enn’s presentation, most of council was convinced and voted to give the healthy authority written support of the safer crack use kits. Coun. Ron Kerr was the lone councillor opposed. “My concern is the message it sends to our more vulnerable demographic, the youth,” he said. “The perception is we’re condoning substance abuse by supplying the paraphernalia, rather than prevention. We’re putting our most vulnerable at risk.” But Enns said the research is “very, very strong that harm reduction does not promote drug use.” Sarah Sullivan, manager of the Campbell River AIDS Vancouver Island office, agreed

there is very little evidence that programs such as safer crack use kits put communities at risk. “Children are generally not in the same vicinity as people using drugs so there’s very little interaction between the two populations,” Sullivan said. “Most drug users I’ve come into contact with want nothing more than to become a good citizen.” Enns added that har m reduction is aimed at the user. “Harm reduction is the bridge to stay connected with people that otherwise would be disconnected, so that they can access treatment and hopefully go on to healthier lives... we can’t intervene in people’s lives when they’re dead.”

Quadra man charged with break and enter PAUL RUDAN

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A young man will be allowed to return to Quadra Island, but will be kept on a “short leash.” Jacob Hazlehurst, 20, was arrested in April after Quadra Island RCMP conducted a search of his residence on Antler Road. During the search, police recovered items that went missing from a neighbour’s boat that was parked in the yard. Hazlehurst was released on a recogni-

zance with the condition that he not return to the property. He was ar rested again recently after allegedly returning to the property and forcing his way into his old residence. This time he was held in custody. On Monday he appeared in Campbell River provincial court for a bail hearing. Crown prosecutor David Fitzsimmons said Hazlehurst has

no previous criminal record and he wasn’t opposed to the young man getting out on bail. However, Fitzsimmons suggested that cash bail, for $500, is usually a good motivator for people abiding by court orders. T he problem for Hazlehurst is coming up with the $500, said defence lawyer Angie Penhall. The young man has a Grade 10 education and works on a tuna boat.

He also has a prescription to take methadone, but, Penhall pointed out, he has no other issues with other drugs or alcohol. Nevertheless, Hazlehurst wants to attend the Second Chance Recovery House in Campbell River to deal with his methadone addiction. In the end, Judge Peter Doherty said Hazlehurst can be released on $500 bail and he can reside on Quadra Island, pro-

vided he is living with one of his parents and the plan is approved by his bail supervisor. The judge also ordered Hazlehurst to abide by a 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, to not go to the Antler Road property, and he cannot consume alcohol or take non-prescription drugs. He is charged with break and enter, and two counts of failing abide by a court order. His next court appearance is June 11.

Unused dam to be removed Heber River Dam is near Gold River A facility used for 48 years to divert water for power generation in Campbell River is being removed this summer. BC Hydro has awarded the contract work to Quantum Murray LP for the Heber River Diversion Decommissioning Project, located near Gold River. Hydro and Quantum will be meeting over the next few weeks to further clarify the schedule and work plan. BC Hydro will provide construction updates through the summer as the work evolves. T he project will see the removal of the 10-metre-high,

120-metre-long timber crib dam; the 3.6-kilometre woodstave pipeline; and the pipeline outlet structure. The entire diversion facility footprint will then be remediated and restored to become part of the surrounding natural environment. The construction updates will include issues such as where the contaminated soil and woodstave timbers from the dam and pipeline will be transported and properly disposed. Hydro is removing the Heber River Diversion due to its poor condition. The local consultative committee, made up of First Nations, government agencies, stakeholders and BC Hydro, came to a consensus agreement to remove the facility. The facility is 53 years old and is generally in poor condition.

The facility operated for 48 years, but has been out of service since November 2006. It was built to divert water from the Heber River into the Campbell River System for hydroelectric power generation. The decommissioning work may begin this month and by fall all the dam and pipeline facilities will should be fully removed and remediated. The majority of the re-vegetation work is planned for 2013. There are numerous environmental and social benefits for the decommissioning: ■ Water will no longer be diverted from the natural course of the Heber River. ■ Upstream fish passage at the dam will be restored and open up fish habitat. ■ About one kilometre of the pipeline

Quathiaski Cove residents vote down sewer proposal, but plan isn’t dead yet KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A project to expand sewer service to homes on Quadra Island did not receive majority support from the homeowners that would be affected by the expansion. The Strathcona Regional District circulated a petition March 29, seeking support for the Quathiaski Cove sewer system. Property owners had six weeks to decide if they wanted to authorize the regional district to proceed with the project. The petitions came back to the regional district on May 10, with little support. “In order to proceed... the regional district

would have required approval from at least 50 per cent of the properties liable to be charged for the sewer system extension,” said Brian Reardon, chief administrative officer for the Strathcona Regional District. “Since approval has only been received from approximately 30 per cent of such properties the board will need to determine whether it wishes to seek approval through a different process, i.e. elector assent (referendum).” Or, the proposal could be tweaked and a second petition distributed. The project, if approved, would have provided sewer service to 53 properties in the

50+ 3x3

Quathiaski Cove area, near the ferry terminal. The cost of the expansion was expected to be around $975,200 including taxes. Each home owner benefiting from the p r o j e c t wo u l d b e expected to pay an estimated $18,400 one-time payment or a parcel tax estimated at $1,400$1,600 per year for 20 years. The sewer expansion was prompted by several requests from Quadra property owners. “Many of the 53 lots identified have a history of septic failure,” said Patti Wells, engineering service co-ordinator for the regional district, in a report to the board last December.

“The installation of sewer service in this area will facilitate ground water improvement and a healthier system.” But the project has seen its share of hiccups along the way. The regional district board voted at a meeting last September to circulate the petition to property owners in order to get the go ahead before the end of 2011. However, changes had to be made to the project bylaws on March 1, 2012. which delayed the distribution of the petition until the end of March. That meant the costs of a system extension study, in the range of $8,000-$10,000, incurred in 2011, were an out-

standing charge at the end of that year. At a board meeting Dec. 15, directors voted to spend $10,000 from the Electoral Area C (Quadra Island) Feasibility Study Reserve Fund to cover the costs. Those funds now have to be replaced, and if property owners do eventually support the project, repayment of the reserve fund will be the first charge against the service. The regional district has not abandoned plans for the sewer expansion and will look at alternatives. The regional district board has directed district staff to come back with a new report outlining options for advancing the sewer extension project.

Water rate increase set for Oyster River People living in the Oyster River area can expect to see an increase on their next quarterly water bill. Rates are going up for residents who are the Black Creek-Oyster Bay water system. The higher rates came into effect April 1, and were not reflected in the first quarterly bill. According to the Comox Valley Regional District, “This increase is required to assist in funding the ongoing operations, maintenance and capital requirements of the service…” Unlike the City of Campbell River which bills residents a flat rate, water users in the Oyster River area are metered. The previous minimum monthly rate for users in the Oyster River area was $15 based on residents who use 1-24 cubic metres of tap water. From there, the rate goes up based on increased consumption: 90 cents per cubic metre for people using 24.1-30 cubic metres per month; to the highest rate of $2.70 per cubic metre for residents using more than 1,500 cubic metres per month. The new base rate is $18 a month and will increase accordingly to consumption: $1.08 per cubic metre for 24-30 cubic metres per month; $1.62, for 30-1,136 cubic metres; $2.16 per cubic metres for 1,136-1,500 cubic metres; and $3.24 for over $1,500 cubic metres. Recent upgrades to the system include two new groundwater wells, building a new treatment plant on Regent Rd. and a new reservoir on Macaulay Road.

Our View

Budget sneaks in major cuts If recent news is any indication, many Canadians are not happy with their federal government. Recent stories include weekend protests over Bill C-38, the omnibus budget legislation introduced in March. We say: Bill Similar protests were staged across the country, while campaigns makes changes against the bill are mounting to more than 70 through letter-writing and laws other forms of pressure on the government, such as wearing green on Canada Day, instead of the traditional proud red of the Maple Leaf. The outcry arises from the fact

the budget bill contains far more than the financial facts and figures officially presented by the Tories earlier this spring. Instead, the more people delve into the budget, the more they realize it’s an attempt to quietly gut many programs and services provided by the government. The budget quietly (sneakily, many argue, since they’re buried in a 400-plus page tome) makes changes to more than 70 laws with massive implications. Other recent stories outline cutbacks with severe implications for immigration services, community archives and environmental protection. Other affected sectors include employment insurance and

Old Age Security, and health care. For some sectors, such as immigration, the cuts will result in added pressure on programs and services provided by the non-profit sector. Ironically, the budget also includes $8 million to fund Canada Revenue Agency audits of charities, considered by some as a move to silence advocacy and free speech on key environmental issues. The Conservatives can use their majority to ram everything through. And by packaging it all in an omnibus bill, to defeat one portion means to defeat everything. Some argue that’s exactly what is needed. – Black Press

The ugly truth at city hall If honesty is unprofessional, let’s have more amateurs. Probably the last thing we need at the municipal level of government is professional politicians. Council and mayor should be, and in most cases are, our neighbours working to build and maintain our community. Good people will honestly disagree about a course of action. It doesn’t mean either of them are wrong or incapable people. But the ugly truth is that the work environment within city hall is toxic. That state not only predates the existing council but two or three before it. It is not the fault of any one person there now, it is just the water in which those fish swim. My heart breaks for each and every one of them, as it would for a third or fourth generation abusive family. No problem is ever corrected or solved by pretending there is no problem. Nor mistakes repaired by saying that moment is past. As George Santayana said in Reason and Common Sense; “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.” Continued on A9 We welcome your opinions on stories and issues published in our pages as well as issues of broader concern encountered elsewhere.

Chaos reigns in wake of voters’ rejection of HST

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

The old saying goes that if you like sausages and laws, you shouldn’t watch either one being made. The legislature’s sausage factory worked overtime to crank out a pile of legislative change before the government choked off debate and shut it down for the summer. This is after a dozen complicated bills were stuffed into the hopper in the final month. For the first time in B.C. history, debate was carried on in three separate chambers to try to get through it all. It created a chaotic scene, with politicians and reporters dashing around trying to create the impression they were on top of it all. The NDP opposition screamed bloody murder about this travesty,

especially as the clock ran down last week and bills were assigned a token 30 or 45 minutes to meet the B.C. Liberal government’s arbitrary deadline. Alas, what little time was allowed for the opposition to question legislation was largely frittered away with the usual partisan sniping that substitutes for alternative ideas. The good news is that this mad rush wasn’t a calculated scheme to ram through unpopular, unfair measures. Quite the contrary. The B.C. Liberal government’s back is to the wall, trying to do what the public and circumstances demand and save its own skin. Here’s a partial list of the march-

ing orders. Get rid of the harmonized sales tax and bring back a computerized version of the old, inefficient provincial sales tax. Unclog the court system, which has become so constipated that a Stanley Cup riot fool can’t even plead guilty in a reasonable time. And find a way to make our growing population of urban anarchists and assorted other deadbeats pay to ride transit. The HST exercise continues to exact its cost. The unprecedented job of creating a modern system for the archaic sales tax was the main cause of the legislative logjam, tying up government lawyers and delaying drafting of other bills. Small businesses that paid $3,000 to convert to

HST get to pay another $3,000 to go back, and we had all better hope the new computer software works. Speaking of computers, one of the laws passed amid the shouting is one that establishes an online system for disputing traffic tickets. Police will print out tickets from their cars instead of hand-writing them, and drivers will have an alternative way to argue about whether they really ran that red light. Fighting a ticket in court now takes seven to 18 months, tying up judges, court registry staff and police. An administrative system won’t keep them all out of court, but the government hopes to reduce the average resoluContinued on A9

City hall: Current situation is untenable While I agree the mayor’s words will likely exacerbate an uncomfortable situation, I see no other way to fix the problem now than to break it.

How many people does it take to stuff an envelope? It looks like it depends where you live. Here in Campbell River it would seem that the answer to that question in the past is “several” since many seem to be upset that this task was assigned to an all-in-one machine this year. Whomever in the city ranks is responsible for this should be commended, this is the kind of cost saving thinking that should exemplify city hall management at all levels. Apparently, this idea only saved $1,000. However, I suspect that is the tip of the iceberg in terms of overtime and ‘lost’ services. Since it was “maintaining services” that won out over fiscal prudence in this year’s budget, the decision to have a professional service print, collate, fold, open, stuff, close, lick and stamp my huge tax bill seems to fit. It would be unacceptable to have city “services” negatively impacted by the task of stuffing 19,000 tax bills. Now all we need is 2,000 more ideas like this one.... Mike Landers

to fix earlier screwups. A judge tossed out B.C.’s most heavyhanded administrative penalties for failing a roadside blood alcohol test, so the government brought in a new version that allows for another administrative

appeal. The mistake of making transit operate on a poorly policed “honour system” goes back to Social Credit days. There is finally a system to enforce collection of fines, on those rare occasions when someone

is ticketed for taking a free ride. Even with the last-minute rush, four bills couldn’t be rammed through. Since the legislature will almost certainly have to be recalled to impose a contract on teachers this fall, the

government would do well to provide a couple of weeks for orderly debate at that time. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

City hall spends and collects taxes extremely well In regards to Chrystal Arnet’s letter to the editor in the Wednesday, May 30, 2012 Mirror, I’d like the opportunity to pass this on. I think you’ll find that Mayor Jakeway and at least one or two other councillors don’t have a problem with the three past projects that

were done, but with what we actually got in return for our money spent on those projects. What city hall does extremely well is collect, collect, collect and spend, spend, spend our property tax dollars. They have to learn to not spend more money than they have com-

ing in. As a business lady, I’m sure you’ll agree with that? Mayor Jakeway asked the Rotarians, “do you want the chocolate coated version or do you want my personal version?” They wanted the real version and they got it. I might add Chrystal,

you or anyone else have every right to go up and see or question our full time mayor. That’s why he’s there – it’s an open door. I just couldnt visualize being mayor and not being able to speak the truth instead of chocolate coating a bad situation. Maybe council should

revisit the idea of approving any expenditure over $20 thousand, (preferably $10 thousand), and the whole affair might start to ebb. In the meantime, I’m sure everyone is enjoying their new property tax notices they just received – pssstssshhh, don’t say anything!

It just might be something someone doesn’t want to hear, or talk about. Ted Arbour Campbell River P.S. If the minority doesn’t get support from the majority of council, then I can assure you a group of business people will be doing so.

SD72 targeting students from overseas International students stimulate economy KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

School District 72 is doing its part to stimulate the local economy by going overseas. For the past three years district employees have been scouring the world, looking for students interested in coming to study in Campbell River. This September, 28 international students are expected to attend local schools and bring in $705,000. “Each full-time international student contributes at least $30,000 to the economy,” said Jo-Anne Preston, coordinator of International Student Programs. “They pay for their education, they

pay for their homestay, and they spend money in Campbell River. Sometimes their families will come to visit, which generates further tourism dollars.” The international program has really grown since it began in 2008 with just four overseas students. In 2009, the program ballooned to 21 students and in 2010 a total of 22 intern at i o n a l s t u d e n t s attended Campbell River schools. This school year there were 20 overseas students who came from Taiwan, China, Ger many, Austria, Korea, Switzerland, Vietnam and Latvia. Preston said the school district has a five-year goal to attract 60 full-time equivalent international students which would generate $1.8 million. She said Canada is a popular place for international students because the country

scores high on international educational rankings and parents value the creative problem solving in Canadian schools. Preston said students choose Campbell River because “it’s safe, it’s welcoming and it provides a true English experience. “You’re not going to walk through the mall and hear people speaking Mandarin,” she said. C a m p b e l l R iv e r offers three different inter national programs. T h e L o n g - Te r m Graduation allows students to come for several years and earn a B.C. graduation certificate while the Short-Stay Programs offer study for as little as two months, to give students a taste of the Canadian lifestyle.

Summer’s heat has finally hit. Then, unpredictably and unfairly, it has gone away again, only to come back in bouts of sunshine to beat the blues of winter. No one knows what exactly is going on with the climate, but one thing is certain – cruising over to Cortes Island and checking out the Gorge Hall is a surefire way to warm the body, mind and spirit. T his Saturday, a tropical breeze hits the coast as a workshop in Cuban-style salsa kicks off a fun, lively evening for islanders and tourists alike of all ages. The Latin band, Zandhunga, will take to the stage with searing-hot salsa mixed with chacha-cha’s, merengues and more. Currently based in the Comox Valley, Zandhunga operates under the direction of Mexican-born, vocalist and multiinstrumentalist, Oscar Robles Diaz. “Our specialty is providing the kind of energy heat that never

After a little side trip down Royston Road into the welcoming arms of Ash Berry Farm last summer, the Big Time Out is back in the Village of Cumberland for 2012. As organizers shift into high gear, another phenomenal roster is shaping up for what has become one of most innovative music events on the west coast. Since its inception in 2005, the Big Time Out has become well known for the feast of visuals, sensational sounds, cutting edge bands and unforgettable performances. This tradition continues in 2012 as organizers not only bring the show back to the Village Park – but to the heart of the Village as well for two days, Aug. 18-19. The Big Time Out is hooking up with local pubs, halls and eateries to present programming in downtown Cumberland. “This shift in the BTO (Big Time Out) framework reflects a deepened connection between Village-proper and the event.” says Kevin Haughton, Big

F rom the de pths of the hobbit-filled, experimental metalrock underworld comes Black Mountain. Drawing on blues, psychedelia, acid rock, and the Velvet Under-

ground, Black Mountain’s sound is a cross between the darkness and grit of the Warlocks and Brian Jonestown Massacre’s trippiness.

He is survived by his wife, Nettie, resident at Yucalta Lodge, and his son Walter (Ron Dyck), daughters Jean (Robert Leeds) and Nettie and his grandchildren Paul, Laura, and Robyn Avery. The family thanks Drs. Kennedy and James of Campbell River and Ravel of St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital, Vancouver and the wonderful staff of 2 North of the Campbell River Hospital. At his request there is to be no service. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society will be valued.

Michael Leigh Collinson May 9, 1970 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; May 28, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mike. We already miss his sense of humour, his smile and the ray of sunshine he brought into all our lives. He will always be remembered in our hearts. Mike is predeceased by his mom Darlene; his grandparents Ivan Dick, and Dempsey and Irene Collinson. He leaves behind his partner Beshara Wilson and their daughter Miley; Elizabeth Wunch and their daughters Kaela and Hayley; his father Steve Collinson (Cindy); his brothers Jason, Desi and Jonah; his Gran â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pearl Dick; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Life will be held at the Cape Mudge Hall on Wednesday, June 6, 2012 at 1:00 pm. Shuttle services will be available from the Quadra Island Ferry Terminal to the Cape Mudge Hall for the 10:30 am, 11:30 am and 12:30 pm ferries.

John Patrick (Pat) Finnerty July 27, 1942 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; May 28, 2012

Passed away peacefully on Monday, May 28th 2012 in Campbell River at the age of 69. Pat was born in Paddockwood, Saskatchewan, moving to Victoria, BC at the age of seven, and then later to Saratoga Beach as a teenager. Even from a young age, Pat was well-known for his ambitious and charismatic personality, leaving a strong impression with everyone who knew him. He held numerous jobs over the years, from working in a mine and as a sales rep in automotive and industrial supply to ďŹ&#x201A;ying his beloved Cessna (C-FUPP), supplying freight up and down the Northeast Coast of Vancouver Island, from Cortes Island to Sullivan Bay. It was during those ďŹ&#x201A;ying years that he met his wife Lynn, and together they owned and operated Sullivan Bay Marine Resort off Broughton Island for over 30 years. There, he perfected his â&#x20AC;&#x153;gift of gab,â&#x20AC;? hosting vacationing yacht owners from all over the world. One of Patâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many passions in life was boating; so it was only natural that he started Palyn Water Taxi, an active boat charter business servicing ďŹ sh farms and the logging industry in the Broughton Archipelago. Outside his business life, Patâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softer side came through. He had an uncanny connection with animals, from crazy cockatiels to orphan seal pups. He had a soft spot for those who were willing to help themselves. He shared many years and adventures with his brother Daleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children (Brent, Jolean, and Darrin), and cherished the love of his daughter Trish and granddaughter Ivy. Pat has also been a Cortes Island local for over 40 years. And although he retired to live in Campbell River, he continued to enjoy summers at his Cortes property with family and friends. His larger than life personality will leave an equally large void in the lives of those who loved and tolerated him. He leaves behind his wife Lynn, daughter Trish and granddaughter Ivy. His mother Dorothy Finnerty, brother Dale (Judy) Finnerty, sister Brenda (Peter) Brophy and nieces and nephews. He ďŹ&#x201A;ew by the seat of his pants. When he saw opportunities he took them. He never took no for an answer but was good at giving it and FOX news will have one less viewer. A service will be held at Suttonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Funeral Home in Campbell River, 502 South Dogwood Street, Campbell River, BC, on Saturday, June 9th, 2012 at 11:00am. Celebration of Life to follow at 420 Elizabeth Road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever blows your hair backâ&#x20AC;? We will miss you Messages of condolence for the family may be left at www. suttonsfuneralhome.com

Key win at home for the Junior Ravens

ALISTAIR TAYLOR/THE MIRROR

Cutting to the net A Pee Wee C Ravens forward leaves a Cowichan Valley Thunder defender in his wake as he gets another scoring opportunity in Saturday’s game at Rod Brind’Amour Arena.

Thrills and spills at Saratoga Speedway Rain almost cancelled an eventful night at Saratoga Speedway on Saturday. The Crash to Pass cars, Hornet cars, Figure 8’s and Roadrunners were all on the racing card on Saturday, highlighted by a

huge oil spill, and the seasons first roll over. Nick Leavitt led the Roadrunner division championship by 18 points over Ted Dimitrov going into Saturday, but with two out of three races won by Dimitrov, he now holds the points lead

cars took to the track for the 12-lap feature; Dimitrov took the lead early and never looked back from there, dominating the other two cars to win his second main event win of the year. Leavitt finished second, Andrea Cannon finished third.

The Saratoga Ventures Junior B Ravens made a strong statement in the battle for the north division as they hosted the Cowichan Valley Thunder on Sunday. The Thunder came into town with a five-point lead on the Ravens but Campbell River drew first blood as Tyson Fair netted his first of the day in the opening minute. Fair’s second goal came with just under two minutes remaining in the opening period and sent the teams to the break with two-two tie. Goals by Braden Howes and Kris Hebert restored a one goal lead half way through the second but then the Thunder took over and finished the period with a seven-four lead. The third period has not been the Ravens’ strongest this season. A roster shortened with injuries and suspensions have left the Ravens with empty tanks in the final frame. This time, with a full bench and the return of key players like Hebert the ravens took to the floor in third with an extra bounce in their step. Seven minutes in Howes scored his second of the day followed closely by Tyler Clark’s first and Fair’s third to tie the game at seven. The rough and chippy game would stay tied until Mac Maier would be reward for his strong effort with the game-winning

goal at 18:25. In a move reminiscent of a playoff atmosphere, Cowichan called for a measurement of goalie Logan Down’s equipment with 28 seconds remaining. The Thunder had just received a minor penalty for asking for a timeout when they didn’t have any remaining. That meant that Campbell River would have been given the ball and could simply play keep away to finish the game. Cowichan risked putting a second man in the box but the gamble paid off as Down received a two minute minor and a 10-minute misconduct meaning he would need to be replaced in net by hockey goalie Tighearnan Marsh. This further meant that Cowichan would be awarded possession of the ball and by pulling their goalie had a 28-second 5-on-4 attack. Marsh made a few saves and the defense were able to smother the Thunder along the boards as the final seconds ticked away. The win moved the Ravens to within three points of Cowichan. The Ravens’ next game will be Saturday, June 9 in Cowichan for what promises to be a heated second half to the home-and-home series. The next home game is Sunday, June 17 at 4 p.m. as Campbell River hosts Peninsula.

Celebrate Community! 7x14

RELAY LEFT PAGE The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is a celebration of survival and a tribute to the lives of loved ones who have been touched by cancer. PROCESS

Cancer outreach depends on motivated, caring people who take the time to inform our community about cancer research, statistics, symptoms and the latest medical interventions available. Together these people make up our nation’s many cancer organizations. Because of them, it’s possible for volunteers to contribute time, energy and money to a specific group or organization they know they can trust. Most importantly, these cancer organizations provide continued support and advice to cancer patients, their friends and family members.

Healthly living could fend off dementia Many people are apprehensive about getting older because of the fear of losing their faculties. Individuals may worry that dementia could rob them of precious memories and make daily living more difficult. Many factors can contribute to the onset of dementia, and recent research notes those factors include heart disease, strokes and other serious health conditions that affect the circulatory system. But other seemingly harmless conditions can play a role, too. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle could help seniors fend off dementia. Researchers in Canada studied data on more than 7,000 survey participants who answered questions of overall health. While circulatory diseases did correlate high to dementia onset, researchers discovered additional conditions, including arthritis, sinus infections, incontinence, and poor hearing, also played a role. The correlation between circulatory issues and brain function may be obvious, but

researchers aren’t exactly sure why minor health infractions could contribute to senility. Some suggest that people with the burden of health problems may not be able to successfully thwart deterioration of the brain that comes with dementias, including Alzheimer’s disease. The World Alzheimer Report states that more than 35 million people around the world are living with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. These are largely brain-destroying illnesses that have no cure. But adults might be able to prevent or delay its onset. Placing a greater emphasis on overall health may help. According to Dr. Kenneth Rockwood, MD, a professor of geriatric medicine and neurology at Dalhousie University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, who participated in the dementia study published in July 2011 in the journal Neurology, “the best thing people can do to stay physically healthy — and thus maintain their brains, too — is to exercise.”

Other things that can be done include adopting a healthy, balanced diet and keeping the brain active as much as possible. Here are ways to do just that. • Seniors can participate in low-impact exercises that promote muscle strength and flexibility. Water exercises are very good because they don’t place strain on the joints. Stretching routines, like yoga or tai chi, are also effective. Exercise plans should be discussed with a health care provider prior to starting. • Work with a nutritionist to develop a healthy eating plan. A healthy diet is essential to keep many diseases at bay, including diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and even to help maintain proper digestion. • Keep the brain active by engaging in puzzles, like crosswords or sudoku. Reading is a way to stimulate vocabulary and also keep the brain sharp. Interact with people on a daily basis and engage in conversation.

Resilience is a topic that’s important for people of all ages By Erin Dusdal, Community Action Initiative Coordinator imaginecampbellriver.ca “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” - Mark Twain The skills and attitudes we need to be resilient are things we can learn, which is why it’s so important to talk about it. Our resilience is moulded throughout our life time. It is shaped by our personality traits, our family, our culture, our environment and the events we experience in life. The resilience skills we have at 60 will be different from the ones we had at 20 because of what we’ve learned and experienced. Being resilient increases our ability to enjoy life. We’re more likely to feel peace of mind, to be healthy, to be connected socially and to be coping with the physical changes associated with aging if we have the skills and attitudes that foster resilience. Things life: realistic optimism, an ‘I can do it’ attitude (self-efficacy), keeps

things in perspective, seeing adversity as a challenge instead of something insurmountable, reaching our for new opportunities, contributing to the community – as well as the basics like: proper nutrition, regular exercise, betting enough rest and enjoying nature (being in Campbell River makes this last one easier!). Resilience is not something you’re just born with, neither is it something you needed to pick up when you were young. We all use it in our day to day lives, to make our way through stresses and bumps in the road. As we all know, life doesn’t always go the way we planned and unfortunately most of us will face difficulties at different points in our lives. If we learn more about what it is that creates resilience, we’ll be able to call on those skills if we need them and we’ll be in a better position to navigate through anything that does come our way. “When it comes to staying young, a mind-life beats a face-lift any day.” - Marty Bucella

Reducing risk for heart disease could save your life Heart disease doesn’t discriminate, affecting men and women regardless of their age or where they live. One Canadian dies from heart disease or stroke every 7 minutes. So says the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada, a charity that annually spends millions of dollars researching heart disease and promoting healthier lifestyles. Control your blood pressure High blood pressure is the number one risk factor for stroke and a major risk for heart disease. Blood pressure measures the pressure or force of blood against the walls if your blood vessels, also known as arteries. Having your blood pressure taken is a routine on most doctor visits, but many people are unaware what the number actually measures. The top number measures the

pressure when the heart contracts and pushes blood out, while the bottom number is the lowest pressure when the heart relaxes and beats. Blood pressure that is consistently above 140/90 is considered high. A normal blood pressure is one between 120/80 and 129/84. Maintaining a healthy body weight and successfully managing stress are additional ways to control blood pressure. Limit alcohol consumption Excessive consumption of alcohol can contribute to high triglycerides, produce irregular heartbeats and eventually lead to heart failure or stroke. Quit smoking The decision to smoke tobacco is the decision to invite a host of potential physical ailments, not

the least of which is heart disease. Smoking contributes to the buildup of plaque in the arteries, increases the risk of blood clots, reduces the amount of oxygen in the blood and increases blood pressure. In Canada, nearly 8,000 nonsmokers lose their lives each year from exposure to secondhand smoke. What might surprise some people, however, is how quickly quitting smoking can reduce a person’s risk for heart disease. According to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, within 48 hours of quitting a person’s chances of having heart disease have already started to go down. For those who successfully avoid smoking for one year, the risk of a suffering a smoking-related heart attack has been cut in half. After 15 years, the risk of heart attack is the

Resilience has been identiÀed as a quality that seniors can foster and strengthen to help cope with challenges of growing older and to increase overall happiness. Things that strengthen physical and emotional resilience include: proper nutrition, regular exercise, emotional support, hope, optimism, close social ties, enjoying nature, volunteering of a satisfying work life.

same as someone who never smoked at all.

Embrace physical activity People who are physically inactive are twice as likely to be at risk for heart disease or stroke than people who are physically active.Getting at least 30 minutes of physical activity on five or more days of the week can help lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol while helping to maintain a healthy weight. If starting from scratch, even light physical activity can provide some health benefits. Gradually work your way up to more demanding activities, and make physical activity a routine part of your daily life.

Precautionary measures older travelers must consider Whether retired or simply an empty nester, older men and women often love their increased opportunities to travel and see the world. Without kids to cater to or college tuition to pay, men and women approaching retirement age, or those who have already passed it by, find themselves with more free time to take to the highways and skyways and experience other cultures. While traveling is a great way to make the most of one’s golden years, traveling as an older adult

isn’t the same as it might have been back when you were a carefree teenager or twentysomething backpacking through Europe. Before setting out to see the world, older travelers should consider a host of factors.

time, be sure your passport is valid beyond the length of the trip. In addition to passports and any visas you might need, make sure your driver’s licenses and auto insurance policies are current and will remain so through the trip. This is important for travelers who plan on renting a car during their vacation. Don’t forget to bring your driver’s license and proof of auto insurance (as well as contact information for your insurance company should an

accident occur) on your trip.

She will provide the follow through for you to ensure the natural therapies are effective. Are you ready to take charge of your health? Check out my column in the Midweek paper.

Climate & Geography It’s also important to consider geographical conditions before establishing any travel plans. Older men and women tend to have more health issues and might even be on prescriptions that can make it challenging to travel to certain areas. Before committing to a trip, consult your physician about the possible effects a certain climate might have on you personally. Some people might be sensitive to altitude and therefore unable to travel to high-altitude locations without putting themselves at serious risk. When considering climate and geography, don’t overlook a region’s history or likelihood of natural disasters. If a given destination has a history of hurricanes, earthquakes or tsunamis, then consider that before making plans. It’s still possible to enjoy such destinations, but you’ll want to travel when such storms or natural disasters are not in season.

feeling you’re prepared for any situation that might arise. But don’t pack so heavily that your luggage becomes a nuisance to take from place to place. If you’re traveling to especially tourist-friendly regions, keep in mind such locales often have all a traveler needs should he or she have forgotten something or experiences an emergency. When packing your clothes for a trip, keep your wardrobe as conservative as possible. Contact Information While a vacation is an escape for many people, you don’t want to escape from the world entirely. Make sure loved ones back home have your itinerary

and know where you will be staying should an emergency occur. If traveling abroad where you won’t have cell phone service, choose resorts or hotels with Internet access and ensure friends or family members you will check in periodically via e-mail. While staying in touch might not be reminiscent of the carefree travels of your youth, doing so will help your loved ones rest easy and will prove invaluable should something unexpected occur. When traveling, older men and women should consider a host of factors before making plans and always make safety a priority.

Weather is often unpredictable. Therefore, dress in layers so you can remove or add clothing as needed to remain comfortable. Children and older adults are more susceptible to the effects of cold weather. Dressing warmly can help avoid taxing the heart. The same caution applies when the temperature is extremely warm. It’s easy

for the elderly to overheat and become dehydrated. Dress in light clothing and remember to drink plenty of water. Before starting any exercise regimen, it is important to discuss your plans with a physician. He or she can determine if you are physically capable of moderate exercise or if any illnesses may impede your ability.

Adult children at home can be a mixed blessing In the 2006 film, “Failure to Launch,” Matthew McConaughey plays Tr i p p , a thirtysomething slacker who still lives at home with his parents. After traditional methods of getting Tripp to move out don’t work, they hire Paula (Sarah Jessica Parker), an “interventionist,” to act as a romantic interest to Tripp and encourage him to move out. Though the film is fiction, the concept of adult children living with their parents is actually quite common. Adult kids living at home are referred to as “boomerang kids.” In addition, 40 percent of recent college graduates

still live at home. Statistics Canada says that about 44 percent of Canadian adult children still live at home. Finances top the list of why individuals stay at home or choose to move back. The failing economy, lack of job prospects and outstanding student loan debt are primary factors in the situation. Many parents take in their children and grandchildren when financial setbacks occur. As long as the adult child is contributing to the household and realizes it is a temporary situation, this can actually be a good bonding time between

parents and child. But when boomerang kids view moving back home as an entitlement, so they may job hunt at their leisure or simply mooch off their parents, this can lead to animosity and stress in the household. Research indicates that the situation is best when parents do the following. • Define the living arrangement and come to an agreement on what is expected of one another. • Decide when the housing arrangement will come to an end. This eliminates any resentment that might result from different assumptions. • Make a son or daughter responsible for a portion

Adult children return to the family home for a variety of reasons. of the household expenses or by charging a nominal rent. This will also make it easier for the adult child to leave at some time because he or she will not have had a free ride at home. • Establish clear expectations and boundaries to the living arrangement. Expectations may include chores, responsibilities, rules on guests, and

anything that may seem like an issue down the road. • Provide financial assistance, such as helping to restructure debt or consult with a financial organizer. Parents shouldn’t simply bail their children out of each and every jam. • Keep in mind their own needs first. Parents can think about what can be fit into the budget to help

their child, and never risk their own financial future or retirement, otherwise resentment may surface. A growing trend, boomerang kids are more prevalent than ever before. However, for the arrangement to work, parents and children must carefully weigh the pros and cons before entering into a living arrangement.

What’s next after retirement? Scores of people spend their working days dreaming of the moment they are eligible for retirement. They may have retirement counted down to the minutes and seconds, particularly if they’ve been in a job that hasn’t been the most enjoyable. But many people find that once they retire they do not know what to do to fill their time. Boredom actually may be a side effect of retirement, and some people actually want to go back to work. Much of the focus when planning for retirement concerns finances. All other factors take a backseat. Therefore, there may be emotional issues that arise during retirement, and retirees are not always prepared to deal with such issues. Having a post-retirement plan in place can mean the difference between happiness and having

a hard time adjusting, according to experts. Here are some tips that can help anyone ease into the golden years. Establish goals. After working for years, the idea of setting goals can seem counterintuitive. But goals can give life direction and have you looking forward to things in the future. Goals also motivate retirees to get up in the morning now that a commute to work isn’t part of the daily schedule. Donate time or money. Giving back to others, whether to the community or to a charitable organization, can feel good and give retirees some structure. Volunteering your time at a place can give life some sort of purpose outside of a job. Start a home-based business. Just because you retire doesn’t mean you have to fully

retire. Now may be the opportunity to start a business venture you have always dreamed about, whether that is something hands-on or just serving as a consultant. Try new things. Part of goal-setting is to add things to the list you’ve never done before, which can boost feelings of excitement. You may discover a new interest that becomes a passion. Now that you have time to explore new hobbies, they might prove more rewarding. Meet with people. Part of what makes work fulfilling is the opportunity to get out of the house and interact with others who are not members of your family. It’s easy to fall into a rut when you are not being mentally stimulated by conversation from different people. Realize it’s alright not

to love retirement. Just because the grass seemed greener in someone else’s yard, doesn’t mean it always turns out to be that way. It is OK to accept that maybe retirement isn’t entirely what you expected and to make changes that can enable the experience to be better. Getting out with friends or former coworkers can help banish boredom associated with retirement.
