Arrest made in beach pipe bomb hoax Laura Lavin News staff

An 18-year-old Victoria man may be charged with mischief in relation to a pipe bomb incident which closed a section of Beach Drive for four hours in March. On March 24, Oak Bay resident Tai Orser, his brother and cousins discovered what appeared to be a pipe bomb with a cell phone, nine volt battery and two wire leads attached. The boys contacted police who secured the area while members from the RCMP explosives disposal and technology section attended the scene to disable the device that did not detonate. The remnants underwent forensic examination and the investigation led police to evidence that identified the owner of one of the items that was part of the pipe bomb hoax. “There was a piece with a serial number on it, and from that item used to build the device, we were able to trace it back to the owner,” said Oak Bay Chief Constable Mark Fisher. On May 16, Oak Bay Police Department investigators located and interviewed the 18-year-old Victoria man. During the interview the suspect admitted responsibility for creating the hoax bomb and throwing it in the ocean near the public beach, said Fisher. “He built it and decided he wanted to dispose of it and didn’t know what to do,” Fisher added. The young man then decided to get rid of the device by throwing it into the ocean near where it washed up on March 24. “He thought it was the safest way to get rid of it,” he said. The 18-year-old, who cannot be identified as he has yet to be charged, admitted his guilt to Oak Bay officers, “once presented with the evidence,” Fisher said. Criminal charges of mischief against the man have been forwarded to the Crown Counsel for consideration.The young man has no previous criminal record, Fisher added. editor@oakbaynews.com

Girls gather shoes for Africa Youngsters inspired to help others collect shoes for Africa and funds for children with cleft palate Brittany Lee News staff

Undetected farsightedness (HYPEROPIA) is a common cause of eyestrain. How can farsightedness go undetected? It can’t, of course, if you have your eyes examined routinely. People can mask small to moderate amounts of farsightedness by using the eye muscles to see distant objects. Even more muscular effort is required to focus on near objects. This action is known as “ACCOMMODATION”. Constant accommodation to see causes significant eyestrain and fatigue. Ideally, the eyes should not require any focusing to see faraway objects clearly. The eye muscles should be totally relaxed. This would leave all the accommodation available to focus in on near tasks. When the eyes are already focusing to see distant objects, the added effort to focus on near work can be very tiring. When we are young we accommodate unconsciously and small amounts of farsightedness can be ignored if vision is good. Since children have a huge capacity to accommodate a parent may miss the sometimes subtle signs of higher amounts of hyperopia. The resulting eyestrain can lead to the avoidance of near tasks. Slower reading development is common in children with significant hyperopia. In some farsighted children the focusing effort may even cause crossed eyes. A person’s ability to accommodate decreases with age. Eventually most farsighted people seek help, but they first may have endured years of unnecessary discomfort. Children should be examined, even in the absence of complaints because they may not be aware that they are working their eyes harder than is necessary.

Three young girls are hoping to change the world, one pair of shoes at a time. Mariah McDonald, McKenna Jennings, and Serena Ball, all 10 years old, recently went around their Victoria and Saanich neighbourhoods collecting shoes from people’s door steps. The trio, who call themselves the Chocolate Covered Strawberries, were inspired to collect shoes for people in Africa after reading

a story about a girl who did the same thing. “We’ve been reading about different countries and we were really drawn to Africa,” McKenna said. “We wanted to help them.” The girls organized a shoe drive and asked friends, family and neighbours for help. To date, they’ve gathered more than 100 pairs of shoes. “Everybody really wanted to help us help them,” Serena said. The shoes will be shipped to Africa through the Compassionate Resource Warehouse, an organization

that ships containers of collecting shoes. supplies to different countries Their next goal is to all across the world. raise funds for Smile Train, Sixty pairs of shoes, mostly an organization helping sandals and dress shoes, children born with cleft have already been sent. palates receive surgery. “I think The three everyone in girls, who “I think everyone are all homeNorth America, in North America, we schooled, say we look on ourselves and plan to look on ourselves and they don’t really see busk, or sing, don’t really see how how lucky we outside of are,” McKenna the Jennings’ lucky we are. ” said. family - McKenna Jennings “(People in business, Africa) don’t Jennings have a lot of shoes, some of Florists on Estevan Avenue. them don’t have any shoes.

POLICE NEWS IN BRIEF

Suspicious male attracts unwanted police scrutiny

May 29, the Oak Bay police responded to a call of a possibly intoxicated man in front of Casey’s Market, in the 700block of St. Patrick St. Police attended and found a man sitting on a bench in a semiconscious state. The man appeared highly intoxicated and smelled of alcohol. Police records showed that the man was on probation, and was under two orders not to consume or possess alcohol. The intoxicated man was arrested for breach of probation and taken into custody.

A man acting nervously as a police patrol vehicle approached on a recent Friday morning, should have played it cool. Oak Bay officers spotted the man stuffing a plastic bag in his jacket pocket as he walked eastbound in the 2300-block of Landsdowne Rd. around 8:30 a.m. May 25. The man was questioned, and a bag of marijuana was found in his possession, police say. He was arrested for not abiding by a probation order restricting him from possessing illicit drugs, and was released on a promise to appear in court.

Drinking driver stopped on Foul Bay road At approximately 1 a.m. on May 30, while on routine patrol, police observed a vehicle failing to stop for a stop sign at the intersection of Richardson and Foul Bay roads. Police followed the vehicle northbound on Foul Bay where it was clocked at 60 km/hr in a 30-km/hr zone.

Semiconscious man taken into police custody Just after 10:30 p.m. on

When stopped, police say the driver smelled of alcohol and admitted to drinking earlier. After failing a roadside screening, the driver was issued a three-day immediate roadside prohibition, along with a $167 fine for failing to obey the stop sign.

Musical thief makes off with part of drum kit Sometime overnight on June 1, a suspect entered an unlocked vehicle parked in the 2700-block of Top Avenue. A snare drum, valued at $500 and five drum cymbals, valued at $2,000, were stolen.

Bike taken from open carport Sometime overnight on May 28, someone entered a carport on Tod Road and stole a blue Trek road bicycle, with white and red accents. The bike is valued at $500.

UVic engineering professor Rodney Herring stands next to the electron gun apparatus, one of the key components to the world’s most powerful microscope being assembled over the summer. “The unique feature of this microscope is that it can see atoms and tell the type of atom we’re looking at,” Herring said. “We can look at how electrons bond atoms together. We can see the fundamental chemistry of chemical bonding.” At a slightly larger scale, Humphrey said the machine will allow biomedical researchers to create, for instance, high-resolution 3-D images of neuron connections in tissues.

Computer engineers can map schematics of increasingly small integrated circuits. Herring expects STEHM will remain on the cutting-edge for years to come and will put the university on the world map in terms of providing a facility for fundamental subatomic research. At UVic, the world of the very small has become very big. editor@saanichnews.com

OUR VIEW

Desperation heard in Krueger’s tactics Juan de Fuca NDP MLA John Horgan knows he crossed the line when he called out the blustering theatrics of Kevin Krueger, the B.C. Liberal MLA for Kamloops-North Thompson. However, the worst thing about this incident is the dishonour it brought to an outdated parliamentary system that tolerates Backbencher behaviour that modern adds little to society no longer will. Horgan and Krueger discussions shared headlines after their Monday morning exchange. In case you missed it, after enduring a barrage of hectoring from Krueger on May 28, Horgan shot back with a comment that suggested his opponent drank too much wine with breakfast. Horgan later regretted making the comment, though he stopped short of a full apology (he did apologize to deputy speaker Linda Reid after calling her out for failing to take charge and muffle Krueger). For his part, Krueger simply dismissed Horgan’s comments much as he does any comments he disagrees with. Krueger has a reputation for his loud voice even among a chamber of shouters. You can argue he has been effective at both shutting down opposition speakers – he also made headlines after heckling independent MLA Vicki Huntington back in February – and at keeping his name in the news. To be sure, debates of the highest level must be open for various forms of expression. That includes speaking loudly or even yelling at select moments. But done to the extent Krueger does is beyond crossing the line. The expectation of his booming hectoring has done nothing to add to the discussions needed to govern our province. Indeed, one of the most prominent campaigns underway has been Premier Christy Clark’s anti-bullying initiative. How can anyone take her seriously if she sits by while one of her party’s members is allowed to rudely shout down people? Is government so afraid that if the opposition actually gets a chance to speak they might say something the public wants to hear? What do you think?

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 resolution time to 90 days and save $8 million a year or more. A similar administrative system is being established for small civil claims and strata property disputes. Some legislation is to fix earlier screw-ups. A judge tossed out B.C.’s most heavy-handed 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.

Bigger lodge isn’t better A recent article in the Oak Bay News regarding an Oak Bay Lodge town hall meeting made mention of “the 247-bed facility.” I think that it is important to point out to the readership that the present Oak Bay Lodge has 150 bedrooms while the new facility will have 320 bedrooms. This, of course, means that the new building will be much larger.

In order to squeeze a structure of that size into the existing lot at 2251 Cadboro Bay Rd., the developer has found it necessary to design a building with six storeys. A six-storey, 320-room institution does not blend into a residential neighbourhood in the same manner that the present Oak Bay Lodge does. Keith M. Mathers Oak Bay

Stability is important for area I would like to put my support behind the proposed development of Garry Oak Village. My personal experience of having my mother in a similar care home has given some insight I would like to share with you. It is important to the residents to be able to retain as much as possible the continuity of their life before care became necessary. Even being able to have an address in Oak Bay will be a comfort. It is also important that visitors feel comfortable in the neighbourhood or they will be reluctant to visit. And in my experience, the

residents with the most frequent visitors are the most content. Visitors can often take some of the frustration out of life in care by being listeners and advocates. No one chooses to live in care homes but we can ease the transition by providing local facilities that meet the high standards of Baptist Housing. Please support this important project. Someday you and I might need the service. Patricia McNaughton Oak Bay

Is it my way or the highway? I have received a mailing from Baptist Housing signed by Howard Johnson, the President and Chief Executive Officer. I have read this letter several times and, as far as I can see from this quote: “Should the proposal and request for parking and height variance be turned down, it is likely that residential care beds will be lost in Oak Bay. Oak

Bay Lodge is the only residential care facility in Oak Bay. “Baptist Housing will not make a third application to Oak Bay,” it is a matter of my way or the highway. I hope that I am wrong. Richard Tallboy Oak Bay

NIMBYs are an embarrassment Re: Resident’s upset with mayor’s tolerance message (News May 18). Oh bother. It’s silly season again. As the only non-NIMBY attendee at the first council meeting ambush by the local Oak Bay Creative Anachronism Society, I can report that Mayor Jensen and his staff and council were more than accommodating of these Edwardian time travellers. The fact that they ambushed a second council meeting suggests that they are either remarkably obtuse or they are scofflaws. Now this group of self-appointed city parents are staging huff-and-puff gatherings in front of the homes of private citizens. What next? Victorian dress codes enforced by unelected roving gangs of tastemakers? (If they come to my house, I will call Oak Bay’s finest for fear

they will trample my Charter rights and perhaps my flowers … but I suppose they won’t since I have an old house.) Incidentally, last week I was in a lawyer’s office on business in Vancouver. On a coffee break I noticed a news clipping on their staff bulletin board about Oak Bay’s latest struggles … I will not repeat the comments scrawled all over it. I felt embarrassed for Oak Bay. We have nothing to fear except fear of narrow-mindedness. For those of us that can, consider giving your open-minded attention to the current planning process and try giving your support for a vital, multigenerational, sustainable interesting future, not a sad, xenophobic little Disneyland suburb. David Wilkinson Oak Bay

Oak Bay Watch is about rights Hello, I am a long time resident of Oak Bay and strongly oppose the “rape and pillage” developers have wrought on our municipality as of late. Thank you to Oak Bay Watch for standing up to this and speaking out. I think you were very unfairly treated by the mayor at the council meeting. This isn’t about attacking new

neighbours at all and that was a red herring of misdirection proposed by the mayor. It is about respecting the existing character and ambience of a neighbourhood many residents have invested decades of their incomes to live in. Why are we not permitted any respect? Jane Chadwick Oak Bay

Oak Bay News reader Chelsey Gunning took this photograph of a deer with twin fawns in her garden in late May.

Council shouldn’t pass the buck on deer management Like most residents of Oak Bay, I spend a large amount of money improving my home and property. This includes big bucks spent on my hobby: gardening. For far too long, we have had deer decimating our gardens. In addition, deer carry ticks that cause a debilitating and often fatal disease i.e. Lyme disease. Meanwhile, Oak Bay council does nothing. The problem has been cowardly passed to the CRD. With more cowardice, the problem has now been passed to a committee of 11. Yes,11! Laugh out loud. I believe it was Mark Twain who

said, “A committee of three can get a lot done if two stay away.” The deer problem is going the way of sewage treatment: nowhere. Council members, you were elected to make decisions. Why did you run for office if you lack the courage to do so? You are failing us. As a former administrator, I am well aware that the worst decision is no decision. I request that the Oak Bay News give us a weekly report on the progress or lack thereof on the resolution of the deer problem. Jack Lowther Oak Bay

Agents of Change give thanks Agents of Change is a student-run club at Oak Bay High dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the HIV/AIDS crisis in Lesotho, South Africa. For the past three years, Agents of Change has had numerous bake sales on Oak Bay Avenue and has received great support from the businesses and community. As many of the current club members graduate this year, we would like to thank those who have

contributed to our success and we hope you will continue to support the club in its future years. Agents of Change will begin again with new leaders and club members in the fall, and hopes to twin Oak Bay High with a school in Lesotho over the next few years. Once again, thank you for your continued support. Matthew Anderson and Julia Albano-Crockford Leaders, Agents of Change

CRD says no to DeerSafe Animal advocates â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;insultedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by CRD decision Brittany Lee News staff

Members of DeerSafe Victoria are feeling insulted after receiving a letter from the Capital Regional District ignoring their request to remove a member from the deer management advisory group. Representatives from DeerSafe sent a letter to the CRD on May 14 asking for the removal of Richard Christiansen, a bowhunter, from the citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advisory group and for the appointment of a DeerSafe member. In a response from CRD Chair Geoff Young, dated May 30, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there was no attemptâ&#x20AC;? to address DeerSafeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns regarding Christiansen, said Kelly Carson, one of the found-

ing members of DeerSafe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is no laughing matter and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being laughed at by the CRD, basically, because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about lives,â&#x20AC;? Carson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that there are better ways of handling (deer) than killing them.â&#x20AC;? DeerSafeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main concern is that the advisory group will continue to progress towards a cull. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty clear that the killing solution is going to be the first action to be taken,â&#x20AC;? Carson said. More than half of the 11-member committee seems to be leaning towards a pro-cull method of deer management, Carson said, noting that member Lisa Kadonagaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position is not yet known because of her absence at the CAGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first two meetings. Members of DeerSafe have been to both CAG meetings so far and plan to attend them all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very respectful

to the CRD,â&#x20AC;? Carson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve attempted to communicate with them that we have a couple of experts in our group who know about humane alternatives to (culling) deer (but) thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been no conversation â&#x20AC;Ś thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been no acknowledgement.â&#x20AC;? Young has previously stated that it would be unlikely for the board to remove members from the advisory group unless a member was repeatedly absent from meetings or seemed unprepared to participate. He also stated that while members of the CAG may be representatives from certain groups, the hope is that some common ground can be reached in discussions.

The old bus meets its end at the claw of a excavator as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recycled into scrap metal.

Spring

At Schnitzer Steel, Derrick Vowles hooks up a pump to remove oil from the engine of one of the oldest buses in B.C. Transitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fleet.

Last stop on a long ride Kyle Slavin News staff

The antiquated B.C. Transit bus pulls into its last stop on time: precisely 10 a.m. Despite a full life serving the public, today the metal workhorse carries no passengers, not even a driver, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s towed to the scrap yard where transit buses go to die. The MCI Classic, purchased new in 1989 for $187,500, spent 20 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; upwards of 18 hours a day, seven days a week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on Greater Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads. In total, it racked up some 1.5 million kilometres, although nobody knows the exact number â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the odometer broke years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The engine on this vehicle has water in the sump. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign of a major failure,â&#x20AC;? says Aaron Lamb, executive director of asset management for B.C. Transit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Could we repair it? Absolutely, you can always repair it. But from an environmental, social and financial standpoint it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense to do that.â&#x20AC;? This bus is one of the oldest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if not the oldest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in B.C. Transitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial fleet. As per B.C. Transit standards, it was taken off the road in 2009, 20 years after it was purchased. But it still had some life in it, so it remained in the provincial contingency fleet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; until it was towed to the scrap yard just north of the Bay Street Bridge last month. Amid an acreage of bald tires,

crushed sedans and shredded metal, workers at Schitnzer Steelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recycling begin taking immediate environmental precautions on the well-kept bus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any leakage is captured,â&#x20AC;? says Jenny Farkas, spokesperson for Schnitzer Steel as she and Lamb watch employee Derek Vowles pump all the fluids out of the engine. The batteries and mercury switches are removed, and the engine is pulled out. Eventually cleansed of liquid toxins, the bus is pushed into place across the yard and comes to a stop between an excavator and a multiple-storey-tall metal baler. And with almost no effort at all, and no moment of silence to recognize the busâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decades of service, the bucket of the excavator slams through the roof crunching the front end and tearing it to shreds. The windshield shatters into pebbles of glass, as the bucket rips through the steering console. The excavator operator picks up the destroyed front end and swivels it into the adjacent baler, which packages the twisted shards of metal and aluminum into a four-foot by fourfoot brick. In a matter of minutes, Lamb has one less recognizable asset to manage for B.C. Transit. The once 12-metre long bus is condensed into a few bales of metal. It will be loaded onto a barge

and floated down to Schnitzerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main shredder in Tacoma, Wash., where all the pieces will be sorted and the majority recycled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an amazingly high recovery rate around vehicle recycling. We can extract finer and finer pieces of all these materials,â&#x20AC;? Farkas says. Lamb conducts lifecycle analyses on all the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s buses on a regular basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thirteen to 20 years from now, the buses could use 70 per cent less fuel than they do now. It might make environmental, social and economic sense then to accelerate our replacement process,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are always new determinants.â&#x20AC;? The technology in a 1989built bus pales to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standard today. There was no air conditioning, no digital signage boards, no wheelchair accessibility, not to mention it guzzled 9,000 litres more fuel each year, and produced an additional 23 tonnes of carbon dioxide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really is a workhorse. â&#x20AC;Ś Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of nostalgia here,â&#x20AC;? Lamb says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think about all the people who were on it over 20 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; how many drivers, how many passengers, how many service people fuelled it.â&#x20AC;? Never again will it be fuelled, or driven, or rode â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least in this incarnation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be recycled into another bus,â&#x20AC;? Lamb says optimistically. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Wartime farce retains message 100 years later Shaw classic opens at McPherson Theatre Natalie North News staff

Some things, as they say, bear repeating. For director Glynis Leyshon, George Bernard Shaw’s Arms and The Man is worthy of the expression. The wartime farce which runs until June 17 at the McPherson Playhouse, is the latest classic brought to the stage by Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre. Though much has evolved around how wars are fought since Shaw penned the play in 1898, the idealization of war and the cult of the warrior hero rings true today, Leyshon said. “It’s Shaw poking fun at the whole romanticizing of war and the idea that heroism is brave, but rather it’s not,” Leyshon said. “It’s real and scary and frightening and something that we should take entirely seriously.” Set during the Serbo-Bulgarian

Don Denton/News staff

Christine Willes, left, as Catherine Petkoff, and Amanda Lisman, as Raina, rehearse their roles in the Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre’s production of George Bernard Shaw’s Arms and The Man. War of 1885, Arms and The Man follows a young woman torn between a dashing war hero and and a soldier who would rather see chocolates over bullets on the battlefield. As an early work of Shaw’s with

a quick-moving plot, Leyshon considers Arms and The Man, an easy introduction to the playwright, even for the most novice of audiences. And for those up on the classics, it’s a rare opportunity to see Shaw on stage in Victoria.

The play is a departure from the veteran director’s last work – God of Carnage, a contemporary comedy “of manners, without manners,” staged this spring at The Belfry Theatre, where Leyshon served as artistic director for 11 years – though Leyshon is more than well-acquainted with Arms and The Man. Leyshon has viewed the play from three vantage points, first as an audience member at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., then as a programmer at the Vancouver Playhouse. “It has that wonderful language of Shaw, and his wit, but it also has something to say to all of us today. It’s one of those timeless pieces that can make us laugh and have a good time, but there’s a truth to that message at the heart of the play that’s still very valid for us all,” Leyshon said. “Getting a chance to do it again here for Blue Bridge is very exciting for me.” The play’s emphasis on divisiveness of nationalism has remained just as originally intended, Leyshon said. The first time she saw Arms and The Man, Leyshon felt removed from some of the details in the

names, such as the Serbians and the Balkans. “Unfortunately with all of the conflict in Serbia and the former Yugoslavia, the idea that there are wars in the Balkans … is all too present with us.” Without undermining the deeper social commentary, she appreciates the play for some of its perhaps more widely accessible attributes. “(Shaw) really is having a good time as a young playwright, having fun with all of the operetta form, the dashing, gallant hero and the elevated, flowery language,” she said. “It’s more tongue-in-cheek and has a lot more genuine sense of farce than a lot of his later and more serious work.” Under Leyshon’s direction are Dylan Smith of Blue Bridge’s inaugural production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It and Stratford Festival lead Amanda Lisman. Vanessa Holmes, Jay Hindle, Brian Linds, Christine Willes and Jacob Richmond round out the cast. Tickets for Arms and The Man are available through the Royal & McPherson box office at 250-3866121 or rmts.bc.ca. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Choir sings for founding member killed in crash Laura Lavin

Celebrating 60 years in Canada

“Louise was a founding member, founding donor, a board member and a mainstay in the alto section.”

News staff

Louise Lemire-Elmore will be honoured in song this week. The Victoria Philharmonic Choir and Music Director Peter Butterfield will be dedicating the Saturday, June 9 performance of J.S. Bach’s Mass In B Minor with orchestra to Lemire-Elmore, a founding member of the choir, who was found dead in Sooke on May 30. “The tragic accident … was a profound shock to the members of the Victoria Philharmonic Choir,” said Joan Athey. “Louise was a founding member, founding donor, a board member and a mainstay in the alto section.” A graduate of St. Ann’s Academy in 1963, Lemire-Elmore majored in Music and English at the University of Toronto and taught for a number of years in Toronto elementary schools, specializing in children’s choirs. After returning to Victoria with her family in 1981, she served as church organist and continued to enjoy singing in larger choirs. The police investigation into Lemire-Elmore’s death is ongoing. Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue divers recovered her remains from her car

The memory of Louise Lemire-Elmore will be honoured by the Victoria Philharmonic Choir. which was found just below the surface in the ocean near her Sooke home. Tire marks indicated she drove off the driveway near her waterfront property, over the rocky embankment and beach and into the ocean. “Louise’s life has always been one of nurturing, educating, and making the world more beautiful, whether she was singing, running a fundraiser or creating wonderful food for hungry

choristers after a concert,” said choir member Sherry LePage. “The Victoria Philharmonic Choir was very dear to Louise’s heart, and she has many friends among the singers who will miss her and her rich alto voice terribly.” The concert in her memory is at 8 p.m. at the First Metropolitan United Church, 932 Balmoral Rd. Visit www.vpchoir.ca. for more information. Tickets are available at Munro’s, Ivy’s and Tanner bookstores and Long and McQuade. “Choristers are expressing a deep desire to honour Louise’s commitment to excellence by singing this beautiful Mass to the very best of our ability,” said LePage. - with files from Sharron Ho llavin@vicnews.com

High school rugby enthusiasts can usually rely on the annual Boot Game between the Oak Bay Barbarians and St. Michaels University School Blue Jags as a barometer. Not so for this year. It was assumed that the boot champion Barbarians, seeded second in the province going into last week’s AAA rugby provincials, would succeed the seventh-ranked Blue Jags in the final standings. Instead, it was the Blue Jags upsetting the Barbs in a 29-24 win in the quarterfinals of the

AAA provincials on May 30, hosted in Abbotsford. The Blue Jags went on to lose to No. 3-ranked Carson Graham, 44-13, in Thursday’s (May 31) semifinals, then lost 22-5 to St. George’s in the bronze medal game. But fourth is a much better outcome than St. Mikes was picked for. And though in the end it was only one spot ahead of the Barbarians, it’s an elbow into the ribs of Oak Bay. The Barbs cleared out the Claremont Spartans in round one, 41-5, and rebounded from the St. Mikes loss to trounce No. 11-seed Handsworth 22-3.

The Barbs then edged No. 5 seed Earl Marriot 17-15 to complete the march up to fifth place. Claremont struggled in the tourney, taking home the wooden spoon (awarded to the last-place team), while the Shawnigan Lake Stags won the AAA title, crushing their opponents with a total combined score of 184 to 18. In the AA bracket the Glenlyon Norfolk Gryphons reached the semifinals but lost 23-8 to eventual winners Collingwood (West Vancouver). Esquimalt Dockers avoided the AA wooden spoon, drubbing Caledonia 32-5 for 15th. sports@vicnews.com

Saanich teams with Victoria on gas tax funding application

Saanich and Victoria councils are hoping for a $1 million grant to help them plan for a new-and-improved Douglas Street corridor. Saanich council last week unanimously supported a joint application with the City of Victoria seeking federal gas tax money from the Union of B.C. Municipalities to conduct “community planning work” on Douglas. “The outcome for citizens is the two municipalities are working together on a project that would be seamless on land-use and transportation, and that’s obviously a good thing,” Mayor Frank Leonard said. There is $3.8 million up for grabs through the gas tax fund, but there are no guarantees the joint application will receive a cent. “This planning grant is what I call the jump ball file. Lots of people put in for proposals, and hopefully the best ones get the funding,” Leonard said. He’s optimistic and hopeful the Douglas corridor project will prove regionally significant enough to attract the funding. If it doesn’t, however, a planning process will still have to happen, albeit a scaled-down version. “At the end of the day, the outcomes need to be the same. The

The term “university” is used under the written consent of the Minister of Advanced Education effective April 11, 2007, having undergone a quality assessment process and been found to meet the criteria established by the minister. City University of Seattle is a not-for-profit and an Equal Opportunity institution accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

planning objectives need to remain steadfast,” said Coun. Dean Murdock. “(With or without the grant), we need to plan for that corridor and look for the opportunities for environmental, social and economic benefits.” Murdock says the challenge in issuing a joint application is that needs-wise, Saanich and Victoria are very different places when it comes to Douglas Street. By determining the similarities and differences in terms of what each municipality is looking to get out of a comprehensive planning process, that will help shape what the process itself looks like, Murdock said. Saanich planner Sharon Hvozdanski couldn’t say how much Saanich has already set aside to spend on the study if the grant application is unsuccessful. “We have some money set aside for this study. Obviously given the importance of the corridor and the neighbourhoods, we would significantly benefit from additional funds to do more,” she said. Applications were due on May 31. There is no word on when the UBCM will announce the grant recipients. Victoria council supported the joint application at its May 24 meeting. kslavin@saanichnews.com
