Public input sought for Cole Island preservation Colwood and View Royal working to save unique national historic site News staff

In the mid-1800s, Cole Island, at the head of Esquimalt Harbour, had wooden walkways and uniforms with no metal for those stationed there. The reason: one spark and the whole island could have gone up in flames. The island, technically in Colwood, was once used as the navy’s ammunition storage, including gun powder. The Royal Navy created the facility, which continued to be used after the creation of the Canadian Navy, up until the Second World War. Since then, Cole Island has passed from federal into provincial hands and fallen into disrepair. But now a partnership between a citizen’s group and government agencies have started restoring the site as a testament to its importance as a national historic site. The next step is to ask the public what it wants done with the island. The first buildings on the island were constructed in 1859. At its peak, the island housed 17 structures. Over the years, the tide, weather and vandalism have taken their toll on the his-

toric site and now only five buildings remain. Moving forward, Colwood and the province For the past five years, the province and Col- want to turn to the public to figure out what to wood have been working with the Friends of do with the island.

Money office. doesn’t go as far.” News staff

Elaine Gallagher, professor emeritus with the University of Victoria Centre on Aging, said the steady proportional increase in seniors has been predicted for years. Senior governments have 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 into 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 centres 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

Royal Roads rebrand reflects new reality

Royal Roads University’s new logo, unveiled on Tuesday.

Colwood’s iconic Hatley Castle has been rebuilt with digital building blocks as Royal Roads University refreshes its image to better reflect modern times. The new look has been in the works for about two years. The need for change was driven by the reality of what the school is in this day and age. “I think the tag line as of (Monday) – Canada’s University for Working Professionals – wasn’t really relevant (to the realities of the current school),” said Catherine Riggins, director of branding, marketing and recruitment at RRU, after the new look and tag line – Life Changing – was unveiled Tuesday.

A statement by RRU said the “university’s learning model allows work and life to co-exist, and the personalized admission process takes into account attributes that other institutions may overlook.” The pixels coming off iconic Hatley Castle in the new look play on the what the school’s marketers says is a juxtaposition between traditional and online learning. “I hope that (the public) see this as truly an attractive brand,” Riggins said. “It really is what our alumni are saying about us.” editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Camping is a quintessential Canadian summer pastime, but for some newcomers to the country it can be an alluring yet intimidating right of passage. Whether you’re new to camping or new to Canada, or both, Parks Canada is holding its National Urban Learn-to Camp Event for the second year to help teach people all over Canada the fundamentals of outdoor camping. In Greater Victoria, the event is held at Fort Rodd Hill National Historic Site from June 16 to June 17. “They might have some fears about camping, they might have some trepidation,” Parks Canada West Coast public education manager Dennis Wasylenko said. “We’re helping them out the first time so that they can get the skills and confidence to do it on their own in the future.” People are often unsure about the logistics of camping, such as preparing for weather, setting up a tent or cooking while camping. Beyond that, some have never slept outside before and have some concerns over what it will be like. “To do it in a group setting really helps them feel more comfortable,” Wasylenko said. “If they’re participating in the program they’re obviously at a point at their time in Canada that they’re ready to start trying those things. So we’re just giving them a helping hand.” Participants learn to set up a camp, with tents and sleeping pads donated by Mountain Equipment Co-op. They’re also taught food preparation, as well as taking part in nature walks and journaling. Participants are also shown how to camp ethically, leaving no footprint of their visit behind. “It’s really about the connection to the outdoors,” Wasylenko said. “I think it really builds and forms a personal connection.”

Kenichi Weng, 3, enjoys his first ever s’more at Parks Canada’s Learn-to Camp event last year at Fort Rodd Hill. The program will be up and running again this year on Saturday, June 16 and registration is still open. Registration is mandatory and needs to be confirmed by Tuesday, June 12. Visit pc.gc.ca/Vancouver or email coastalbc.cotec-b@pc.gc.ca for more information and to register. There will be a second, slightly more advanced Learn-to Camp event in July at Pacific Rim National Park near Tofino. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Caught in the act Undercover RCMP officers arrest man wanted for indecent exposure Charla Huber News staff

Similar case

The Mounties got their man red-handed and with his pants down. Most importantly, police believe they’ve arrested the person responsible for a series of indecent acts committed on a B.C. Transit bus linking the West Shore to Saanich. A 31-year-old man was taken into custody Tuesday after two women officers with West Shore RCMP conducted a sting operation and caught the man masturbating on the No. 50 bus, shortly after 7 a.m. He boarded the bus in Langford at Goldstream Avenue and Wale Road, along with the two plainclothes female RCMP officers. “As soon as they got on the bus they got seats to get a good view,� said Sgt. Max Fossum of West Shore RCMP. B.C. Transit believes it is the first time anyone has been arrested while exposing himself on a bus, said Meribeth Burton, B.C. Transit spokesperson. “Moments (after boarding the bus), the gentleman starts exposing himself,� Burton said. “He was arrested at Douglas and Cloverdale (in Saanich) when he got off the bus.� There were other passengers on the bus, but police say none were aware of what the man was doing.

While this case sounds similar to accounts earlier in the year of a male exposing himself at bus stops in Greater Victoria, Sgt. Max Fossum of West Shore RCMP said he is not sure if the cases are connected. Last year, about 20 incidents were reported in Saanich and Victoria about a man masturbating at bus stops. In most of those incidents, the man would expose and fondle himself in front of women, primarily Asian. The description of the offender at the time was a caucasian male between 20 and 35, six-feet-tall with short brown hair.

“The officers were surprised no one else saw,� Fossum said. The RCMP had a suspect after a woman took photos and video of a man committing a similar indecent act. The witness recorded that incident at 7:15 a.m., May 23, and passed on the evidence to police. It was the second time she had seen the same man expose himself.

The 31-year-old is a Langford resident. He was described as six-feet-tall, Caucasian with reddish hair. “This is not the first time he’s been charged with this,� Fossum said. The man was spotted getting on the bus at the same location several days in a row before police set up the sting. B.C. Transit’s customer service team received calls after May 23 from other bus riders who reported a man exposing himself on the No. 50 bus. “Descriptions varied,� Burton said. “With the photo it was clear who it was we were looking for.� The woman who snapped the image of the man in the act was “smart� to do so, said Burton, explaining that it allowed the RCMP to work with B.C. Transit’s security to send the suspect’s description to all 550 bus drivers. “We suspect it wasn’t just the one or two times,� Burton said. “But it was the one time that we had someone who was really sharp who took a photo, and the police involved our security team and all of the pieces came together.� The suspect, whose name had not been released as of Wednesday, was due to appear in court on June 5. reporter@goldstreamgazette.com With files from Erin McCracken

Frigate sets sail with drones Erin McCracken News staff

When Canadian frigate HMCS Regina heads for the Arabian Sea region in July, it will deploy with an unmanned aerial vehicle detachment. The ship will carry a small remote-controlled drone – essentially a tiny airplane that can fly for hours on end – that can capture high-quality images and data used for intelligence-gathering, surveillance and reconnaissance. “This is something of a first for a West Coast ship,� said Cmdr.

The aerial vehicle will likely prove useful when the ship conducts patrols as part of an American-led naval counterterrorism operation underway in the Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Oman, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean. “Like any unmanned air vehicle, they’re used as an extension of your ship’s sensors to broaden your reconnaissance capability, basically,� Boyd said. “That’s the effect that the navy brings, is that we’re able to easily re-role and take on new things such as this. We’re very flexible.� The crew’s job during the seven-to-eight-month mission, he said, will be to look for suspicious ships, take note of traffic patterns and act as a deterrence in an unstable region. “We’re just looking for things that stand out in the area, from the flow of narcotics to supply money to fund (terrorism), to the transporting of key personnel, to the transporting of weapons – anything relating to counterterrorism is what we’re looking for.� When Regina leaves CFB Esquimalt, it will carry 260 crew, including Sea King maritime helicopter personnel and spe.

Charlottetown’s mission changed May 3 when it was ordered to the Arabian Sea, where some of the most important shipping lanes in the world are said to be situated. An unmanned aerial vehicle stationed on the vessel has been credited for playing a critical role in spotting ships involved in running drugs.

OUR VIEW

Queen’s reign offers stability At a time when the world is in financial turmoil and people are looking for some stability, Queen Elizabeth II is as good a person to look to as anyone. Not just for the Commonwealth countries over which she symbolically rules, but as a global picture of modest leadership. Recent polls show that support for At 86, Elizabeth II maintaining Canada’s presents modestly ties to the monarchy on the upswing strong leadership are among Englishspeaking Canadians. Part of that reversal of trend from say, five or six years ago, is likely due to last year’s royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. But large kudos have to be given to William’s grandmother, who has traditionally held her own in polls when it comes to popularity or respect, regardless of the general feeling about the monarchy. In the 60-plus years since her coronation, Queen Elizabeth has quietly done her job as the head of state, sparking very little controversy and avoiding interference in political matters, especially those of countries other than Britain. It seems those in Canada who argue against keeping our connection to the monarchy have more concern over what might happen if Prince Charles were to become King, which he is in line to become once his mother dies or steps down from her duties. For now, the Queen, 86, shows few signs of slowing down, especially as she heartily celebrates the start of her seventh decade on the throne with a series of celebrations at home and abroad. To be sure, the future of the monarchy as it relates to Canada will one day require more serious discussions than relying on poll results. But with the Canadian public remaining as enthralled with the Royal Family as any other type of international celebrities, our links to the Queen and the Crown appear firmly entrenched. As we muddle our way through tough times, that’s comforting to know. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@goldstreamgazette.com or fax 250-478-6545.

be directly quoted. There is only one spokesperson, they say, and that is the minister of each government department. I’ve even received background information from a government communications staffer who simply cut, pasted and emailed a story to me that was written by a journalist from another media outlet. Journalists are also under regular pressure from non-government sources who ask to read drafts of articles in which they are quoted, prior to publication. Regardless of the reason – nervousness about being misquoted, or being associated with incorrect facts or portrayed in a negative light – I think it’s critical that the public know they are reading an unfiltered, balanced news story. Imagine if every article you read in a newspaper was first vetted by the people who are quoted in the story. The story would, in essence, be a sanitized press release. And we get enough of those as it is. This is a fast-paced electronic age, one in which the output of information from a bevy of sources is one-sided. As such, it’s becoming increasingly important for the public to have access to content that isn’t simply processed sunshine and lollipop statements. Sugar in moderation is okay, but too much and it can come back to bite us one day. That day may already be here. Erin McCracken is a reporter with the Victoria News. emccracken@vicnews.com

LETTERS Dog ownership rules restrictive Why won’t the City of Victoria stop pussy-footing around and admit they’re dog-hating cat people? There are no rules regarding cat ownership. They’re allowed to wander unsupervised all over the city. Everyone’s yard is a litter box and nobody seems to care that these critters can bolt into traffic. But heaven forbid you own a dog. The city hired a private team of over-zealous browbeats to maintain “control” over dog owners and their pets. You’re not allowed to bike with your dog and apparently walking with your dog is

discouraged too. There’s a bylaw stating you’re not allowed to “park” (tie up) your dog so you can go grab a coffee or do an errand. This means dog owners must drive everywhere with their dogs. I’m a bike-riding dog owner who does not drive. I’ve been in touch with the mayor and city council regarding the restrictive bylaws surrounding dog ownership. I am all for dogs being controlled by their owners, but mandatory leash laws do not guarantee control. A leash only gives the illusion of control while allowing the owner to forgo actually training

their dog to listen/obey. Just last week in Nanaimo, a dog was attacked and killed by a dog on a leash. As I’ve explained to the mayor, the issue is control. Clearly that leashed dog was not under control. My dog was trained on a “mental” leash and for 11-plus years we’ve used words to get him to slow down, move over, stay, etc. Dogs enhance their owner’s lives and it’s a shame the city supports bylaws that make dog ownership so unpleasant and restrictive. Nancy Raycroft Victoria

Readers respond: Left-laners, economy, E&N High speed main factor in traffic deaths Re: Slow drivers present greatest hazard (Letters, June 1) I was not surprised by the ranting letter about people who drive in the left lane on the Pat Bay Highway. Formerly a law enforcement traffic officer, I am one of them, but drive on the left because it is the safer of the two lanes. I do not drive under the speed limit unless there is a reason to do so. The left lane is not exposed to merging traffic, or traffic entering from service roads along that route. Nor is it exposed to drivers who jerk into a right exit from the left lane because their driving habits do not allow them to safely get into the right lane in time. There are times when I must drive in the left lane in preparation for a left exit. I am a bit amazed about the statement that Alberta drivers “finally got it.” Has this man driven Highway 2 between Edmonton and Calgary? It is frightening and dangerous, due entirely to high speed. The Pat Bay Highway is less than 25 kilometres long, with four traffic lights. One needs a calculator to determine how much time one ‘may’ save – under ideal conditions, over that entire length – even driving twice the legal speed limit. The need for speed is a habit and a dangerous one. A bit of thought about the actual time factor in almost every situation will clearly show this to be a fact. Charles Scheideman Saanichton

Our economic future tied to resource sector We are living in a strange and rapidly changing world, where countries are on the brink of

default on their huge debts. While anti-federal government voices are heard almost daily, Canada is hopefully on track to avoid the Greek-style tragedy unfolding in Europe. Our resource sector, the economic engine presently keeping Canada afloat, will be our saviour in a world where the options are few. Canadians are being force fed the idea that Canada will now have no environmental watchdogs or safeguards. All that with a minor reduction in government spending. That seems a little odd to me. I also do not think Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who has been vilified by so many, has instructed the various government agencies where they should make cuts. Many environmental regulations were too restrictive and cumbersome before the proposed budget bill changes. They caused legitimate resource development to be indefinitely stalled or reviewed out of being. The problem of governments tending to overlegislate to justify their own existence is common. The stakes are high. Because of our natural resources and energy reserves, Canada has the unique ability to survive in a world where manufacturing is being sucked into the black hole we call China. There is no stopping this deindustrialization of the west. If Canada can survive with our standard of living mostly intact, we will be one of the few developed countries to do so. Canada can be a society that uses its financial resources to care for our rapidly aging population and have some significant influence internationally. Or, we can fade into economic obscurity, adrift and unable to finance our social programs, health care and

educational systems. In that scenario, Canada could have little or no affect on the world; another welfare state looking for handouts. Bill Wilson Saanichton

Let’s get moving on E & N project Re: Rail safety none of the public’s business (Roszan Holmen column, May 25) I understand the first part of the E & N railway restoration project will be the stretch between Victoria and Langford. They are going to need a lot of help cleaning up along the tracks. People will be asked to help clear brush and weeds, plus a lot of junk that people have dropped on their walk along the trestles. Work is supposed to have started on the railway project, but I have not seen anyone at the roundhouse. The public needs to see work begin on the tracks now, and not have it be put on hold. Any delay would not help ease the Colwood crawl, which sometimes causes it to take two hours or more just to reach Helmcken Road from the Dockyard. The railroad could place dumpsters for volunteers to dump debris and weeds into, unless they want to put weeds in a separate container. I know quite a few people would come out for a hour or two to work on the tracks. People don’t want to wait until 2013 or 2014 to be able to take a train. Politicians have to stand up and tell us the truth of the matter at hand. I hope the E & N rail project isn’t delayed. It would be a shame to see a part of Victoria heritage die when there is no reason for it. Barbara Dunahee Esquimalt

Wolves gear up for first season Jim Zeeben News staff

The West Shore’s new junior-B franchise has an updated logo and threequarters of a roster. The news was officially announced Thursday night at Bear Mountain Arena, where the club will kick off its season with a game meant to pay tribute to its future fanbase. The Wolves first league game on Sept. 5 will be free to the public as the team tries to make amends to fans burned by the last incarnation of a junior-B team on the West Shore. “I think where (the idea not to charge for the first game) stems from is the past history of junior-B was not good,� said Wolves general manager and director of hockey operations Ken Carson, who is also part of the team’s ownership group. “We have a lot of things to change to get a good start out of the gate.� After several futile seasons in Sooke and eventually at Bear Mountain, the Westshore Stingers folded from the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League in 2010. The new owners of the Wolves are placing an emphasis on providing a place to play for kids who come up through Juan de Fuca minor hockey. “That’s one thing we’re really trying to push is to get as many local kids as we can,� Carson said, noting that nine of the 15 players confirmed so far played their minor hockey on the West Shore. And while the club is investing in local players, Carson says being competitive is critical. “We’re still looking for a couple of top six forwards. We’re looking for two top six defencemen and we’re looking for one more goaltender,� Carson said. “The Juan de Fuca kids that we’ve brought back all have a history of winning. That’s the group that’s going to make up our core.� The team has also taken advantage of the connections of seasoned head coach Victor Gervais – formerly the bench boss of the junior-A Victoria Grizzlies – to bring in three prospects from Prince George. When it comes to recruiting, the Wolves benefit from being in a region that’s recognized for devel-

oping talent. There are also an abundance of post secondary options for kids who want to have an education to fall back on after hockey. To that end, the team announced Belmont secondary school teacher Todd Fazer will serve as the Wolves educational advisor. The team also announced that Jackson Penny, the former GM of the Grizzlies, will be back working with Gervais, this time as associate coach. Team colours will resemble the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning, though uniforms won’t be ready for about another five weeks. The Wolf on the logo now has its teeth bared to look a little more fierce than in the original incarnation. Home games will be on Wednesday nights, starting with the freebie that Carson and the rest of the club’s owners hope will signal a fresh start for junior-B on the West Shore. “If we’ve done our job properly a lot of those people will come back.� editor@goldstreamgazette.com

From birds to butterflies, if you’re interested in attracting wildlife to your garden, the first step might well be in creating the right setting. To get an idea of what works well naturally, visit one of the Westshore’s natural parks to explore the local habitat. Not surprisingly, low-maintenance, waterwise native plants can be excellent choices in creating a wildlife-attractive habitat. According to the Capital Regional District, common native trees that attract wildlife include Arbutus, Garry oak, Western yew and vine maple, while good choices for shrubs include common snowberry, Nootka rose, the spring-flowering red flowering currant, orange honeysuckle, red-osier dogwood, mock-orange and many more. On the ground, look to kinnickinick, false lily of the valley, bunchberry, stonecrop, sword fern and coastal and woodland strawberry, while common wildlife-attracting native perennials, bulbs and annuals include nodding onion, Sitka columbine, Menzie’s larkspur, native lupine and penstemon and monkey flower. Plants that can provide food, shelter and nesting material will go a long way to encouraging your feathered friends. To attract hummingbirds, include plants with nectar sources, usually found in bright-coloured pink and red flowers such as red flowering current, salmonberry, nodding onion and orange honeysuckle, the CRD notes. Food for other local birds can include berry, nut or seed-producing plants such as red elderberry, Indian plum, red osier Jennifer Blyth photos dogwood, Oregon grape and wild rose.

Police arrest Luxton robbers One adult male and two youths have been arrested in connection with a string of knifepoint robberies that took place at the Luxton Rodeo. West Shore RCMP are recommending the man, in his early 20s, be charged with three counts of robbery. A 16-year-old and a 17-year-old are also facing charges for the three robberies. All three were identified in a photo lineup as well as through witness interviews. The adult male was arrested in Victoria on June 1. The robberies, which took place in and around the Luxton Rodeo fairgrounds on the weekend of the May 18 to 20, were initially believed to have been committed by a group of up to five youths, including a female. That’s changed, as the Mounties believe they’ve arrested everyone involved, said RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Max Fossum. Police also suspect the same group were responsible for beating up a man outside of a hotel in the area. The victim, however, was too drunk at the time to be able to identify his assailants. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Run attracts 1,400 goddesses The idea was to hold a race for women only and the idea seems to have worked. More than 1,400 women ran in one of three events held in Langford on June 3, for the inaugural Goddess Run. Oragnizers say it was the first race on Vancouver Island held exclusively for women. “We look forward to the participants’ feedback, and to making the Victoria Goddess Run even better next year,” announced Cathy Noel, one of the race’s co-directors, in a statement sent out on Monday.

Potter enchanted by hands-on medium Use of driftwood brings excitement to work Kyle Slavin News staff

Ester Galac is so passionate about pottery that she turned down a diamond ring as a 20th wedding anniversary gift from her husband, and opted instead for a potter’s wheel. The 55-year-old Saanich resident first entered the pottery world more than two decades ago, after years of interest in the art but never having had an opportunity to set foot into that world. “Our girls were taking ballet lessons at Cedar Hill. While waiting for them I was wandering through the halls and found the pottery studio. I was enchanted,” Galac recalls. She took her first pottery class in 1989, but the timing wasn’t right to pursue the art – what with raising two daughters – so she didn’t return to pottery until 1999. That’s when she took another class. And then another. And then another. And Galac has never looked back. She’s now an active member of the South Vancouver Island Potters Guild, which is hosting its annual show and sale at the Fairfield Gonzales Community Place on June 16. The bottom floor of Galac’s Gordon Head

She has her studio (where she throws the clay and forms the pieces), a kiln room, a glazing room and then a storage room with shelves full of funky homemade teapots, mugs, vases, plates and pitchers. Each of Galac’s pieces is unique – playful, and evidently inspired by the nature that

encompasses her home. Though many of her pieces are functional, she points out a decorative bronzed oval, which she’s particularly proud of. She scours area beaches – Cordova Bay, French Beach – for kelp and driftwood to incorporate as handles and the like on her art. “In today’s mass-produced world, when

people buy handmade work, that brings different qualities and some excitement into your everyday,” Galac says. “The user can find the marks that the maker left “I was behind.” The Potters Guild wandering is 70 members through the halls strong, 35 of whom will have their works and found the display and for pottery studio.

But being part of a group was really important for my development,” she says. “Having other people who’ve had the same frustrations and failures through their art really helps to strengthen your resolve to stay and do more.” The Clay Connects show and sale happens June 16 at 1335 Thurlow Rd. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information on the South Vancouver Island Potters Guild visit victoriapotters.ca. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Food, human rights focus of art exhibition Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Just Food will bring a new look to human rights issues in a display this month at the Mary Winspear Centre. The Just Food art exhibition features 13 artists from Canada and around the world who add their voices to the growing number of people connecting the right to food with a faith-based response to hunger in the world. “We’re just hosts, it’s not a church function. It’s more about human rights and using the arts to communicate that,” said pastor John Liira of Highway Christian Fellowship, the church on McDonald Park Road near Highway 17. “It has a very unique focus, it’s on justice and food issues. “ The artists, including six Canadians (one of them First Nations) and 12 other international artists from 13 countries, were given United Nations declarations as inspiration. “It’s really highlighting some of the current issues with food accessibility and done in a visual format that is very compelling,”

Laura Lavin/News staff

The hope is that with this exhibit, people will be informed, equipped and motivated to exert themselves and their communities toward the goal of ending hunger — that Just Food will become just food. “We’re very involved with the social justice and poverty issues as a faith based community,” Liira said. “People get to enjoy a really stimulating exhibition and be involved in social justice at the same time.” He discovered the show, which has toured North America for about 18 months now, on the Canadian Food Grains Bank website. Admission is by donation with proceeds going to the Canadian Food Grains Bank. “It’s one of the two primary arms for food aid in Canada,” Liira said. “It’s a reputable, government-recognized organization, so we just want to highlight through the art exhibition there’s opportunity there for us to actually make a difference.” Just Food is on at the front gallery of the Mary Winspear Centre. The show runs to the end of June from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Saturday. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Even on a bad day – by his own standards – Mason Kereszti dominates in the javelin, his specialty. He won gold in that event at the B.C. high school track and field championships in Burnaby last weekend (June 2 and 3). He also won gold in the discus, and bronze in the shot put. “I didn’t train with the discus or shot put, and only threw them in three competitions this year, so I’m happy it all just came together for me with those two events,” said the Grade 12 Lambrick Park student. Kereszti’s dominance in the javelin was blatant, as he beat the silver medal winner by just under eight metres. Not bad for an off day. “I don’t know what was wrong,” Kereszti said. “I was more than four metres short of my personal best.” It’s the second year in a row that Lambrick Park secondary has turned out a future national team member in a throwing event. Kereszti is following in the footsteps of his cousin Adam Keenan, who graduated from Lambrick in 2011, and will join him in Kamloops this summer to train with the national training centre. Keenan has been there one year already, focusing on

the hammer throw. Kereszti hopes to one day succeed Olympian Scott Russell as the reigning Canadian javelin thrower. It will be a few more years of junior and under-23 competitions until the two can pack on the kind of bulk sported by Olympic-level throwers, though Keenan is well on his way. Kereszti will enroll at Thompson Rivers University, just as Keenan currently is, and will train alongside his cousin under the watchful eyes of Anatoliy Bondarchuk. The highly regarded Russian also coaches Olympic medal hopeful Dylan Armstrong. The cousins are now in training for the national junior track and field championships, set for Winnipeg, July 27 to 29.

Oak Bay streak ends The Oak Bay girls team’s domination of the provincial track and field championships ended at nine straight titles with the team’s second-place finish in Burnaby. The four-by-400m relay team of Rianne Craig, Bree Neale, Lexie Scott and Heather Vantassell won gold, and the same team won silver in the four by 100m, swapping in Kiah Ecceleston for Vantassell. Craig also won silver in the pole vault, clearing 2.85m, with the bronze medal going to Lindsay Cole of Mount Doug. Madelyn Brunt won bronze in the 1,500m steeplechase.

Liam Kennell won bronze in the 1,500m, beating Mount Doug rival Thomas Getty, who was fourth. And Graham Landells won silver in the 1,500m race walk.

The fruit of fourth place A belated adjustment to the decathlon standings moved Lambrick’s Lucas Dellabough from fifth to fourth, which pushed the Lambrick boys team ahead of Oak Bay. Dellabough also took bronze in the 200m dash and finished fourth in the 100m dash. sports@vicnews.com

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

SPLASH

Olympicfacts Summer Games begin in July

Diver Riley McCormick changes tactics as he prepares for the Games

The 2012 Summer Olympic Games will be held July 27 to Aug. 12 in London, England.

Official flame now in the U.K.

Story by KYLE SLAVIN

R

iley McCormick says the London Olympics will be a different experience than Beijing. And he’s veering away from what he did four years ago to give him the best chance possible of winning. “What will be best for me will be focusing my time and energy into consistent training, rather than travelling around to different meets before the Olympics,” the 20-year-old Saanich resident said. Even from a mental perspective, getting a spot on the Olympic team was entirely different this time around. “The first time it was an ‘I made it!’ feeling. I was ecstatic. I had achieved my goal,” he said. “This time I was excited, of course, but I felt more relieved than anything. Last time (at the Olympics), I had already accomplished my goal (of qualifying).” McCormick secured his Olympic spot on May 27 at the Diving Canada Olympic trials in Montreal. He completed an impressive fifth-round reverse dive, earning perfect 10s from four of the judges, and clinching a spot before taking his final dive. Training as an Olympic platform diver is no easy feat. McCormick, who’ll participate in the 10-metre event in London, spends seven days a week training at Saanich Commonwealth Place. His rigid schedule involves an hour of dry land work in the morning (stretching, flips, acrobatics) followed by an hour in the water. And then his afternoon begins with another hour out of the water, followed by two hours in the water. “I have to have a good strategy with my coach … in order to not blow everything out, and have nothing left in the tank for the Olympics. I feel like we had a great strategy, because I’m not exhausted from it, and I’m ready to keep going.” As an athlete, McCormick sees that he’s improved significantly since the 2008 Beijing Olympics. “I don’t have as many errors. I’m a lot more consistent,” he said. “I’m also doing much more difficult dives now.” Another aspect of attending the Olympics that he hopes will be different this time around is getting a chance to see other athletes compete. “This time I’m definitely going to take a different approach, and I’m going to try and see some sights, and see other events,” he said, mentioning that a soccer game is top of mind, in that respect. But his priority remains ensuring he’s physically and mentally prepared when he’s standing 10 metres above the water at the London Aquatics Centre. “It’s very, very stressful … but I’m still hungry for this – I’m hungry to do well at the Olympics.” kslavin@saanichnews.com

The Olympic Flame was lit in Olympia, Greece on May 10 and after a short relay around that country, it arrived in the United Kingdom May 18.

Thousands carry Olympic torch The Olympic Torch was carried by 8,000 torchbearers, who travelled 12,874 kilometres through more than 1,000 communities. On average, each torchbearer carried the flame 300 metres.

Stadium built to be Games centre Olympic Stadium will be used for Olympic athletics, opening and closing ceremonies and Paralympic athletics. The 53-metre high structure took three years to construct and required 10,000 tonnes of steel.

Discover the art of sushi at Langford’s Akemi Sushi “Serving the best sushi on the West Shore”. While the welcoming atmosphere and friendly, efficient service certainly sets the tone for the delicious meal to come, the real treat is in the traditional Japanese cuisine. Brent opened Akemi Sushi in 2006, fulfilling a longtime dream, then in 2011, he and Frank, family and business partners, took their restaurant to the next level, moving from their modest Colwood building to their beautiful new restaurant in Station Square. Pull up a chair to the sushi bar where you can watch the chef in action, or enjoy a seat in the comfortable dining room – either way, you know you’re in for a delicious dining experience. Expertly prepared by Brent, a Japanese master chef who brings more than 15 years’ experience to his craft, the menu offers such favourites as light and fluffy tempura and sushi rolls, along with a few unique ideas special to Akemi. Particular favourites include the Akemi Roll, featuring real crab, cream cheese and cucumber, then topped with smoked salmon and avocado, and the Neptune Roll, with barbecued eel, real crab, lettuce, cucumber and tempura crunch, topped with smelt roe. And don’t forget the tuna tataki and baked oyster, Frank suggests: “They’re items you definitely don’t want to miss.” For guests visiting for lunch, Akemi Sushi offers daily lunch specials, including Bento boxes, a great way to sample a variety of favourites. Come back for dinner, when Akemi offers a variety of nightly specials, including Wednesday’s popular Rolling Boat night, with its assorted sushi. For groups of up to 25, Akemi Sushi offers private fireside seating, and take-out, delivery and catering are available.
