UVic unions vote to strike No job action planned, as mediated meetings are scheduled for this week Kyle Slavin News staff

Blast of energy Fleet Diving Unit member Bryan Ogle, left, wearing a bomb disposal suit, is exhausted after finishing his run around the Centennial Stadium track, as teammate Cole Woods continues running laps during the 24-Hour Relay at the University of Victoria. The relay raised $464,402 last weekend. The money goes toward sending children with disabilities to summer camp.

Pickets and placards could soon go up at the University of Victoria, after two unions – representing some 1,500 employees – recently voted in favour of striking. CUPE 951 members, who work office, technical, library and childcare jobs on campus, voted 80 per cent in favour of a strike on May 23. “For them, 80 per cent is very high. Inside workers tend to be a little more cautious when it comes to strike votes,” said Loree Wilcox, CUPE national servicing rep. In late April, CUPE 917 members voted “With mediation 93 per cent in favour of a strike. That local represents tradespeople working still in progress and at UVic, plus grounds workers, janitors, the required essential painters, housekeepers, lifeguards, services yet to be utility drivers, food service staff, cooks auditorium staff and security officers. designated, we do not Both unions have been without a believe that any job contract since March 31, 2010. Wilcox says the last time either of the action is imminent ....” unions took action was in November – Kane Kilbey 1999, when 951 went on strike for approximately one day. She says the success of meetings held this week (June 5 through 7) with the employer will determine whether the unions will hit the picket line. “The employer is returning (this) week with their approved cost-savings plan through the 2012 mandate, so we’re meeting with them and the mediator to see what that brings,” she said. “It’s been a protracted round of bargaining, to say the least,” Wilcox added, saying that bargaining began in October 2010. Kane Kilbey, UVic’s associate vice-president of human resources, wrote in a pair of bulletins posted online that he remains confident the bargaining process will be successful. “It is not uncommon for a union to take a strike vote (and receive a strong strike mandate) during the collective bargaining process and we respect their right to do so,” he wrote. “With mediation still in progress and the required essential services yet to be designated, we do not believe that any job action is imminent …” PLEASE SEE: Strike depends upon negotiations, Page A30

Cancer patient plans for son’s future

Accused in fatal crash at airport pleads guilty

Young single mom says her health concerns weren’t taken seriously

The driver in a fatal incident at Victoria International Airport last summer will appear in court for sentencing later this month after pleading guilty last week. Shirley Murray Zerbin, 82, pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention. The Motor Vehicle Act charge has a maximum penalty of a $2,000 fine plus six months in jail. The minimum is a $100 fine. She’s scheduled to appear for sentencing June 12 at the Victoria law courts. Witnesses to the July 29 crash said a white sedan was driving fast when it went over the curb from the parking lot, across the airport entry road and over a raised grass area where it struck a taxi and a table full of people. The vehicle carried on and hit a baggage carrier structure then crossed another stretch of pavement before hitting the airport security building. Yellow Cab driver Ramesh Sharma, 57, was killed and seven others were injured. Zerbin is also named along with the Victoria Airport Authority in a civil lawsuit launched by nine people who say they were affected by the crash. The multi-party action was filed in Supreme Court by lawyer Chris Considine on Jan. 11. The suit seeks compensation for injuries sustained by nine clients. That compensation would cover pain and suffering, wage loss, future income loss, cost of care, Considine said. editor@saanichnews.com

Julia Wolf’s eyes focused on the melanoma poster fixed to the examination room door. The 19-year-old thought there was a chance the freckle on her leg might be one of the “less dangerous” forms of skin cancer. Wolf told the walk-in clinic doctor her freckle had certain signs of cancer. It itched and changed shape over time. He laughed and told her she was too young for that. “He basically made me feel like an idiot for even asking,” said Wolf, now 28 and diagnosed with metastatic melanoma. “Yeah I was 19, but it turns out you’re not too young at the age of 19. “If he had sent me to a dermatologist or looked into it, I could have caught it early on, but he just didn’t take it seriously.” While the spot grew and changed, Wolf sought more medical help, but like that first encounter, she continued to hear the same message: she was too young to have skin cancer – she was healthy. Seven doctors later, she had little more than diagnoses of dry skin, a wart and hypochondria. Years after that first clinic visit, another doctor suggested Wolf’s daily waves of nausea were allergic reactions to work. “He was really rude and I felt embarrassed. It’s all because I was young and it pisses me off because it’s my life. I expected somebody to give a damn and nobody did. Everybody can go on their merry way and I’m dying.” In October 2008 when she was pregnant with her son Lucas, Wolf demanded to see a dermatologist and was finally diagnosed.Each trip to the oncologist has revealed more bad news. The single mother living in Saanich has now endured one round of chemotherapy and four surgeries to remove tumours and lymph nodes from her leg. It’s quite rare that melanoma, the most aggressive form of skin cancer, develops in someone as young as Wolf. For the 10-year period from 2000-09, there was an average of 11 cases diagnosed each year in B.C.

and wrong, you have to do something about it,” Wolf said. “You can’t just let them tell you it’s OK.” Wolf investigated the prospect of taking legal action for the negligent medical care she received, but learned that given the number of different doctors who had dismissed her concerns, both on the Mainland and in Greater Victoria, she was left with little recourse. Wolf’s medical care prior to her diagnosis – marked by walk-in clinic after walk-in clinic without the consistency of a family doctor – is typical of how many people seek medical help in the face of few doctors accepting new patients in Greater Victoria. While at the release of their last annual report, in June 2011, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia boasted having made steps toward improving the issue of patients left withDon Denton/News staff out family doctors by Julia Wolf gets a kiss from her son, three-year-old Lucas, in their Saanich home. licensing 387 new phyWolf is fighting an aggressive form of skin cancer, making her unable to work. sicians in B.C., the stage She is looking for additional help with childcare. is set for another story like Wolf’s to recur.

UVic-commissioned data theft review nets 29 recommendations Kyle Slavin News staff

A detailed privacy review, commissioned by the University of Victoria after confidential employee information was stolen in January, says the major data breach was a preventable incident. The report, written by the province’s former Information and Privacy Commissioner David Flaherty, lists 29 recommendations to prevent similar incidents in the future. “This major data breach should not have happened if the established data loss prevention and protection measures had been followed. In my view, the university was prepared to prevent such an occurrence,” Flaherty wrote in his report, released Friday (June 1). On January 7 or 8, thieves targeted the payroll department in the non-alarmed Administrative Services Building, and stole a number of electronics. Among them was an unencrypted USB flash drive. That flash drive held the names, banking information and social insurance numbers of all 11,841 employees on UVic’s payroll since 2010. Given the volume of sensitive information on the device, “(the) protections in place for the flash drive were not ‘reasonable’ in the circumstances,” Flaherty wrote. The device was stored in a locked room, in a locked safe, in a locked cabinet. Flaherty’s report came two months after the province’s current Information and Privacy Commissioner released similar investigative findings. Elizabeth Denham said there is “no rationale” that the

information wasn’t digitally secure, and that the university breached the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act when it failed to protect its employees’ personal information. Flaherty’s report covers a wide scope of recommendations, from administrative duty priorities to auditing security measures. Among Flaherty’s recommendations is mandatory annual privacy and security training for all university nonacademic staff who handle personal information.

disruption, including flooding of buildings and labour strife,” Flaherty wrote. Additionally, he recommended the university stop storing social insurance numbers. “Data minimization has to become more than a buzzword at the university. … The stolen USB flash drive did not have to include social insurance numbers, because other means of unique identification were in place,” Flaherty wrote. “Payroll put the numbers on the flash drive for purposes of convenience in the event of a crisis. The unwise thought was that the employed would remember their SIN but not their (work ID) number.” An attached internal assessment, conducted by UVic professor Jamie Cassels, reads that the university responded well to the data breach. The activities and planning processes underway do demonstrate that steps are being taken to identify and catalogue storage systems containing personal information, and to assess and improve the protection of that information. “They show that the university has plans for reviewing information security, physical security, privacy and records management policies on an ongoing basis,” Cassels wrote. “The various activities and initiatives, planned and ongoing, all seem appropriate, effective and sufficient.” A press release from UVic says they are “considering how best to implement (Flaherty’s) recommendations,” and added that they have already taken some preventative steps. A Saanich police investigation into the theft is still ongoing. The majority of the

“Evidently, (privacy training) was not targeted well enough, or repeated often enough, to prevent inadequate security practices that resulted in a data theft and a major breach.” – David Flaherty “Existing … materials demonstrate that plenty of university training has been prepared, but evidently it was not targeted well enough, or repeated often enough, to prevent inadequate security practices that resulted in a data theft and a major breach,” he wrote. He also recommended that the university continually invest in hardware and software to protect data that requires security. And back-up data should be stored off site. “The stolen USB flash drive should not have been stored on campus in the first place, since its main purpose was business continuity … in the event of a natural disaster or other

electronics that were stolen were recovered in late January, but the flash drive in question is still outstanding.

NEWS

Saanich and Victoria councils are hoping for a $1 million grant to help them plan for a new-andimproved 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 landuse 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 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

Climber injured in dramatic fall from Saanich rock face A rock climber was airlifted to hospital after having plummeted from a rock face in the Arbutus Cove area Saturday (June 3) morning. At just after 11:30 a.m. the Saanich Fire Department responded to the Gordon Head park to aid the B.C. Ambulance Service in their rescue of a man who had fallen into rocky, difficult-to-access terrain. The man was found with several broken bones and he was suffering from shock. He was bundled in a basket stretcher and moved to the beach, where he was taken by helicopter to hospital. As of Monday, updated information on the man’s condition was unavailable. nnorth@saanichnews.com

been slow to respond, but are starting to see the repercussions of a greying population. As the senior population gets bigger, the more younger people are caring for aging relatives. And a higher proportion of people will be living with Alzheimer’s, dementia and arthritis, Gallagher said. “These areas will really be a challenge in the future. There are fewer young people to support health care and social care,” Gallagher said. “And there are other repercussions. Our generation, baby boomers, want a role to play in society. They don’t want to sit back and just golf and fish. They want to be engaged.” A greying population has caused local governments to reorient how they develop their communities. Taking to account an aging population while planning infrastructure and programs is now part of the standard procedure. In 2008, Saanich participated in a

World Health Organization project to make urban areas more “age friendly,” in co-operation with the Centre on Aging. In areas with high populations of seniors, Brice said the engineering department installed countdown indicators at crosswalks and longer walk signals. Recreation centre needed to be mindful of how people with walkers, scooters and wheelchairs would access facilities. The police department is more aware of the kind of scams targeted at senior citizens. Saanich and the SD61 also joined forces to meld a seniors centre into an elementary school under threat of closing in Cordova Bay five years ago, a move seen as a success in the face of falling enrolment. Kids and seniors even share joint programs. “That kind of thinking is needed on how we will manage resources with changing demographics,” Gallagher said. editor@saanichnews.com

Bus passenger assaulted twice after disembarking A young Japanese man, living in Canada on a work permit, was assaulted last week after getting off a bus near University Heights. Saanich police say the incident occurred just before midnight May 29, when the 22-year-old disembarked at Cedar Hill Road and McKenzie Avenue. He was fol-

lowed off the bus by a passenger with whom he had a conversation moments earlier. “He was attacked from behind with no warning whatsoever, thrown on the ground and kicked and punched,” Sgt. Dean Jantzen said. The suspect repeatedly demanded the victim’s iPad and threat-

ened him if he didn’t comply. The Japanese man was able to defend himself, and kicked and punched the attacker away before running across the street. The suspect followed and attacked again. The victim was able to break free again and get to the Safeway at Univer-

sity Heights, where he called police. “It’s a very disturbing incident in our community – that a guest in our country is treated in this manner,” Jantzen said. The suspect is described as a white man with long blond hair and a blond beard that comes to a point roughly two inches below his chin. He was wearing a dark hoodie, long pants and possibly grey Nike shoes. It is believed he is a smoker. Jantzen said the Japanese man suffered scrapes, cuts and bruises to his knees and face during the attack. The suspect did not make off with any stolen property. Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to call them at 250-4754321. kslavin@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 behaviour that modern society no longer will. Backbencher Horgan and Krueger adds little to shared headlines after their Monday morning discussions 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.

‘Deer problem’ unsupported by objective data I carefully examined the deer population trend and deer collision statistics documents attached to the Deer Management terms of reference and posted on the Capital Regional District website. These reports are supposed to support the citizens advisory group in the process of studying the deer issue and providing recommendations to the CRD. According to the first report, the population of black tailed deer on Vancouver Island is estimated to be in the range of 45,000 to 65,000. This number, especially considering the wide margin of error, is virtually identical to the 2008 estimate. According to the second report, deer collisions and deer fatalities within the CRD have been up and down over the same period of time, showing no clear trend. Therefore, both the deer population trend and deer collision statistics reports are inconclusive at best and certainly do not support the general claim of an “exploding deer population” as widely reported in the media. There have been a few hundred written complaints last August, mostly from Oak Bay residents and mostly regarding cosmetic damage to their gardens. A few farmers spoke at the CRD meeting last February complaining about increasing numbers of deer on their properties and significant economic losses suffered as a consequence of that. However, to this date to my knowledge, they have been unable to provide any concrete estimates of either one. In the absence of accurate, reliable and objective data and statistics backing up these claims and complaints, I believe that there is not enough information available to establish the nature and extent of the “deer problem,” if any. The evidence gathered so far is, in my opinion, purely anecdotal. Based on the data available, I believe that a drastic action particularly involving lethal management is totally unjustified and unnecessary. Nabhraj Spogliarich Saanich

Reporter’s bullying experience signals societal failure Re: Bullying experience a harsh reminder, (Written in Ink, June 1) I read your piece on the bullying teenagers in our Saanich News, and it confirmed a lot of my thoughts at the moment about how our society is basically falling apart.

So now they are picking on anyone on the street, not each other? The causes? I would I guess blame inadequate parenting (the all-too common single parent has a hard time doing the parenting job and is up against a lot of challenges); lack of adult, especially young-adult examples to follow except for the celebrity types; and lack of mentoring and discipline in the schools, along with the new “hands-off” conservatism cutting the state agencies and youth centres. The media influence on young lives is too strong. Our entire society is permeated by it and the media messages are all mostly wrong, but how do we counter that? Teenagers are growing up who have never heard a peace-producing strain of classical music in their lives, never had a thought beyond how to relate to their age-group, never encountered an idea related to serving others. I know it’s hard to react swiftly under the circumstances you describe, but it’s too bad you just didn’t call 911 and say you were being harassed by a group of teens on the street and were afraid of being attacked by them. If you did not have a phone with you, you perhaps should have gone up to a nearby house, and asked for help and made the call. I hope your article will prevent others from just lowering their heads and being victimized, and stimulate discussion in the high schools, but I wonder. Janet Doyle Saanich

Shelbourne Street consultation costly, obvious outcome Over the last several weeks the municipality of Saanich has been removing patches of road and filling it in with fresh asphalt on Quadra Street north of Tolmie Avenue in an effort I guess, to rehabilitate a worn-out roadway. This week they’ve removed the whole road surface, curb to curb, I guess to do what needed to be done in the first place: doing the job right. Recently we heard that an “outside consultant” has advised Saanich against turning Shelbourne Street into a two lane roadway from the present four, from Feltham Street to Hillside Avenue. I’m not sure which is so incomprehensible, the fact that anyone would even consider such an absurd idea, or the fact that they had to hire an “outside consultant” to figure this out for them. Is there not one person in the planning

or engineering departments that know how to design roads? How difficult can it be? It’s a pretty straight road with no hills and only three major intersections at McKenzie Avenue, Cedar Hill X Road and Hillside. Pave the damn thing, narrow the lanes by six inches and add bike lanes. And if the sidewalks need to be narrowed by six inches, do it. I’ve never seen a congested sidewalk. I sure hope these aren’t the same people that want to run and maintain our billion-dollar sewage treatment system. Bob Broughton Saanich

Canada should abolish the Senate, not elect members

tutional change – why not do it properly in the first place and abolish the Senate? Robert Townsend Saanich

Free buses are more effective than impaired driving fines Re: Keep pressuring high-risk drivers (Our View, May 23) The editorial states: “Keep penalties as a deterrent for impaired drivers.” This suggests the CounterAttack program is working. ICBC evidence presents no such conclusion. Justice Minister Shirley Bond’s politically expedient report neglects to say that before the CounterAttack program there was already a 37-per-cent decline in alcoholrelated fatalities between 2007 and 2009. ICBC tells us why: “Many factors affect the safety of road travel and therefore influence trends in crashes, injuries and fatalities. Road safety cannot directly influence all aspects of crash frequency and severity (like weather, the economy, the cost of fuel, and kilometres driven),” according to ICBC’s 2011 Road Safety Business Plan. In an economic depression, it is known that auto-related deaths decline. People are driving less. Free bus service running frequently during peak inebriation times would be cheaper for society and nearly eliminate substance-related deaths. And the cops could get much more paid time-off to be with their families, instead of being forced to stand out in the cold. But maybe the Roman show of bravado is what we’re really after here. Larry Wartel Victoria

Premier Christy Clark has had a lot to say. One point is elections for membership to the Senate of Canada. She talks of electing the members to the upper house. I have a question: When looking to other countries for ideas and examples, why do we almost exclusively look at the United States? There are other very worthy countries in the world. Because there is an elected senate in the U.S., which may be very good for them, why do we need one on Canada? In New Zealand, 62 years ago, they abolished their upper house. Our system of parliament is much more similar to New Zealand’s system than it is to the U.S. congregational system. New Zealand is no less democratic with the upper house gone. If we are going to change the Senate and the role of the Senate, why not go all the way and abolish it? We talk about decreasing government. We talk about slashing government expenses.

of WiFi is provided at locations by somebody, and a lot of cities have really gone with as much publicly accessible WiFi as possible,” said Jon Woodland, assistant manager of infrastructure in Saanich’s information technology department. The program has been up and running for a couple months now, and Woodland says feedback has been all positive. “Just before we were getting ready to deploy we asked, ‘What’s the current status of what people are saying about how safe WiFi is around us?’” he said. “The research showed that there were no effect known, so we put that into our information, and we haven’t had any complaints whatsoever.” The free network – called Saanich WiFi – is an unsecured network, and

users are cautioned about allowing file sharing on their devices when they’re connected. “We also have everything going through web filters, which filters out inappropriate sites. We don’t want people surfing for unsavoury stuff in public places,” Woodland said. The cost to implement the wireless Internet network “wasn’t too high,” he added, saying the municipality had a $20,000 credit to use from Bell. While this is likely as expansive as the project will get, Woodland said Saanich is looking for partnerships that can help provide free WiFi at parks during Saanich events.

Craigflower Road to get more upgrades The transformation of Craigflower Road in Esquimalt continues. Work on the next phase of the upgrade project will be tendered out early this month, leading to the installation of a sidewalk, new bus shelters and new pavement, as well as work on the storm water system. Craigflower Road, from Garthland Road

to Arm Street, will be the focus of the project. The work will likely begin in July and take two to three months to complete, said Jeff Miller, Esquimalt’s director of engineering and public works. Funding for the third round of upgrades will be covered by funds left over from previous improvements.

Last June, the township celebrated the completion of a $5-million overhaul to the busy thoroughfare, from Admirals Road to Garthland Road. The installation of traffic-calming features, bike lanes and new sidewalks came in under budget, resulting in a $1-million surplus for the project. emccracken@vicnews.com

UVic seeks heritage designation for water tower The University of Victoria applied to designate the Hamsterley Farm water tower as a municipal heritage structure last Monday night (May 28). The tower, located on the university’s Lot 1, at 2489 Sinclair Rd., was constructed in 1910 by the Pease family to supply water to their nearby strawberry crops. The gravity-fed water tower, restored after it was damaged in a 2004 fire, is one of two remaining water towers left in Saanich. The other, built in 1916, remains on Thompson Farm

on Old West Saanich Road. Hamsterley Farm water tower is one of three UVic buildings on the register and the first one for which the university has sought official designation. The move follows encouragement from the district of Saanich staff, sparked by the proposal of the Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities parkade project near the water tower, said Saanich Coun. Vicki Sanders. “The water tower had a very good restoration (follow-

ing the fire),” she said. “UVic has already shown good leadership.” Sanders hopes it won’t be long before UVic seeks designation for the two other buildings – the Gordon Head Army Camp from the 1940s and the Maritime Naval Communication Centre built in 1940. Registration acknowledges historical value of properties but does not provide protection by law. Heritage designation, however, provides permanent protection. Saanich council supported the application. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Loophole plugged for ‘gift’ cars Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government is plugging a loophole that has prompted hundreds of people to claim they are giving away vehicles to friends or “acquaintances� rather than pay sales tax on the transaction. When it adopted the harmonized sales tax in 2010, the B.C. government increased its separate tax on private sales of cars, boats and other vehicles from seven per cent to 12. The federal goods and services tax doesn’t apply to private sales, and the B.C. government said it wanted to level the playing field between private sales and used cars purchased from dealers. The jump in the tax rate appears to have made a chronic tax evasion problem worse, as even high-end cars have become

popular to give away, at least on paper. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said the new provincial sales tax legislation specifies that vehicle gifts can only be given to a genuine relative or a registered charity. “Clearly we’ve had a situation in British Columbia where there has been an enormous effort underway for the public to avoid paying tax owing when they sell vehicles,� Falcon said. “Either you accept that explanation or you just believe that people have become extraordinarily generous in British Columbia in giving away their high-end vehicles, including Mercedes, Porsches and BMWs, to individuals who they are not acquainted with but they are describing as friends or best friends or acquaintances.� Falcon estimated the tax dodge has been costing the B.C. treasury “tens of millions� each

“Clearly we’ve had a situation in British Columbia where there has been an enormous effort underway for the public to avoid paying tax owing when they sell vehicles.� – Finance Minister Kevin Falcon year. An effort to tighten up the gift process last year by replacing a letter declaring the vehicle is a gift with a detailed form for buyers and sellers didn’t relieve the problem, he said. The B.C. sales tax on privately sold vehicles is called the “Tax on Designated Property,� and it applies to aircraft and boats as well as cars and trucks. editor@saanichnews.com

Greenwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lengthy naval career drawing to a close News staff

Though unplanned, it proved fitting that the outgoing commander of West Coast naval operations included a salute to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flagship submarine in his goodbyes. Rear-Admiral Nigel Greenwood handed over command of Maritime Forces Pacific and Joint Task Force Pacific to Rear-Admiral Bill Truelove at CFB Esquimalt on Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Such a pleasure to see Victoria sailing out of this harbour on cue, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen from here on in,â&#x20AC;? Greenwood told invited guests. After five years in the shop, the submarine returned to sea early last year, under Greenwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watch. On Monday, he watched it cut toward the Strait of Juan de Fuca, another step towards full operational status. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to give lie to all those passive doubters who thought we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it. As a navy, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll prove them wrong, again and again. To my mind, Victoria represents our navy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; small and powerful, deployable and potent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of rep-

utation we have around the world here.â&#x20AC;? Greenwood also hinted at the difficulty in retiring after a fulfilling 37-year naval career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen other admirals pass this podium before in a similar circumstance. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you about swallowing the anchor, it tends to get stuck in your throat.â&#x20AC;? Truelove is taking on a role that involves enormous responsibility. As commander of Maritime Forces Pacific, he will be in control of Canadian maritime forces in the Pacific Ocean. As commander of Joint Task Force Pacific, he can give the order to deploy military personnel to domestic emergencies in B.C. He will also be responsible for search-and-rescue response in B.C. and the Yukon, and for the Cadet organization in B.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure how it could feel any better than this,â&#x20AC;? Truelove said, as Greenwood, Vice-Admiral Paul Maddison, commander of the Royal Canadian Navy; and Lt.-Gen. Walter Semianiw, commander of Canada Command, looked on. Truelove, who joined the military

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

“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

Esquimalt to seek funding for Admirals upgrades Erin McCracken News staff

One of the busiest streets in Esquimalt may go under the knife to receive bicycle lanes and traffic-calming measures, if outside funding can be secured. The township is applying for a second time to the Union of B.C. Municipalities for $2.8 million, enough to pay for a makeover to Admirals Road from Maplebank Road to Lyall Street.

The conceptual plans call for bike lanes, traffic-calming islands, improved storm-water collection systems, new bus shelters and a new asphalt coating on the road, as well as scaling back the roadway from four lanes to two. Council, late last month, echoed pros and cons that were raised last spring. They expressed enthusiasm for improved safety along the narrow roadway, but also concern that a reduction in traffic lanes could increase congestion or impact businesses. When the township did a preliminary analysis of the corridor, it was

Kyle Wells Victoria Hospitals Foundation kicked off its 2012 Spring Campaign looking for help purchasing new surgical equipment. This year’s focus for funding is minimal invasive surgery equipment for Victoria General Hospital (VGH). This equipment allows surgeons to perform a variety of procedures with a reduced impact on patients, leading to faster recovery times and more efficient and effective surgery. Inserting a slender tube with a camera into a small incision, the equipment, called a laparoscope, becomes “the eyes and the hands” “Minimally the doctor. Having this invasive technology of option available means is the gold standard that more invasive procedures, involving for patient care.” large incisions and – VGH clinical nurse potential danger, are leader Marcy McKay avoidable. The goal is to raise $390,000 to replace the current equipment, which is showing its age. This funding will allow for the purchase of four surgery towers, which includes the laparoscope and monitoring equipment. “Patients are in and out of our hands much more quickly, they’re back to work much more quickly,” said Dr. Will Orrom, medical director of surgical services at VGH. “This new state-ofthe-art technology will help surgical teams to continue to deliver high quality care.” The equipment is used in a variety of situations, including orthopedic, abdominal, neural and gynecological operations. The new camera is three generations ahead of the older model in use and of a much higher quality. “As our equipment deteriorates we begin to see malfunctions in it, or it has to be fixed,” Orrom said. “It becomes more and more difficult to get the level of quality we need to achieve the procedures that we do.” In 1988 VGH clinical nurse leader Marcy McKay had her gallbladder removed, a procedure which resulted in a large incision, a week-long recovery in hospital and six to eight weeks before she could return to work. Two years ago, McKay had surgery to remove an adrenal gland on her kidney, this time using the minimal invasive surgery equipment. With only four small incisions necessary, McKay was able to go home the day after her surgery and return to work in two weeks time. “Minimally invasive technology is the gold

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice

Thank you to all our sponsors:

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.

St. Mikes crush Oak Bay hopes News staff

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

Okell and MGB headed back to Monterey Bill Okell and crew will drive 17 out of 24 hours, give or take, as they haul the team’s modified 1964 MGB sports car in a nine-metre trailer to a pair of Nasport Lite races in Monterey, Calif. this weekend. The ageless racing and broadcast veteran is looking for his third-straight championship in the six-race, points-based Nasport Lite series at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, June 8 to 10. Okell and the MGB own the track record for a Nasport Lite car. On the home front, Okell raced his Honda CRX

in four races at this year’s GTU championship series based out of Mission Raceway, and is third in the standings. Okell has won that series five times and placed second last year. “Note to self, I’ll have to bring the MGB out for the early races at Mission next year. The Honda’s not as fast and the competition is getting stiffer out there,” he said. Okell will run his MGB for the final six GTU races at Mission Raceway, beginning June 23 to 24. sports@vicnews.com

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

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

Strike depends upon negotiations A University of Victoria groundskeeper marks off spaces to be used by overnighters prior to last weekend’s 24-Hour Relay at Centennial Stadium.

Continued from Page A1

The cost-savings plan to be brought forward this week during negotiations will also cover the third CUPE union on campus: local 4163, which represents teaching assistants, ESL instructors and sessional instructors. The TAs and ESL instructors have been without a contract since March 2010, but Wilcox says that union has “no plans at this time” to hold a strike vote.

“That’s simply because they operate on a more school-year-type calendar. And with school being done, they can wait for the employer to bring back the cost-savings plan for all three locals.” Two-year agreements, expiring this year, have been reached with the Faculty Association, Professional Employees’ Association, and the sessional instructors with CUPE 4163. Kilbey wrote that negotiations with those unions will begin imminently. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Child, youth counselling programs given a boost B.C. Families in Transition will provide affordable, specialized therapy services to children in an additional 30 families this year, after receiving a $10,000 grant from the Telus Victoria Community Board. Families in Transition’s child and youth counselling programs are the fastest-growing of any service the organization provides, but are also the most costly, according to executive director Richard Routledge. Specialists work with young people in such areas as art, music and play therapies, and are well-versed in family relationship issues. The Telus grant, along with funding from the United Way and the B.C. Gaming Commission, is expected to help B.C. Families in Transition assist more than 200 children and teens this year, and provide support to the adults in their families. Its office is at 812 Broughton St. For more information about youth programs or any other services offered, visit www.bcfit.org.
