How do you top a NCAA Div. 1 10K championship? With a NCAA Div. 1 5K crown just two days later. That was the remarkable achievement recorded by Black Creek’s Cameron Levins at the NCAA national championships in Des Moines, Iowa last week. As noted on the Southern Utah University website, Levins’ closing speed was on full display for a second night as the Thunderbirds’ senior out-kicked the competition over the final 150metres to win Friday’s 5K race.

Accused discussing stabbing – witness Erin Haluschak Record Staff

A close friend of a boy accused of second-degree murder told a Courtenay courtroom Friday that he and the accused were in a “deep conversation ... how you wouldn’t want to stab someone” hours before James Denton was killed last year. The B.C. Supreme Court courtroom, which has been filled to capacity with friends and family of Denton and the accused since the trial began June 4, heard how the friend and accused were drinking near the Vanier track before and while they attended the nearby Rhythm on the Rock Music Festival on July 23. As Crown prosecutor Gordon Baines noted in his opening statement, Denton, 19, was stabbed twice last July — once in the left armpit and once in the left

nearby Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds. Baines added Denton collapsed almost immediately and was

lower back — near the entrance to G.P. Vanier Secondary School following the conclusion of the day-long music festival at the

unresponsive. He later died of the two stab wounds at St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Comox. ... see DENTON ■ 2

Criminal charge laid after phone call Erin Haluschak Record Staff

Tensions between the Denton family and that of the 16-yearold accused have escalated. A member of the accused’s family allegedly called the Denton household Friday around 1 p.m., and identified himself as a reporter for the Comox Valley Record. Comox Valley RCMP note the caller requested to speak with Brenda Denton (James Den-

ton’s mother), but the request was turned down, although the call was not disconnected. “They weren’t talking very nicely, and they specifically wanted my wife, so I said no, she’s not available and I hung up,” explained Dave Denton on Monday, after he quickly determined the caller was not a member of the media. Denton used his cellphone to call police about the phone call. RCMP said comments that could be heard on the Denton

telephone involved the ongoing trial and witness testimony. Police said they arrested a 42-year-old Comox resident who is facing a charge of criminal harassment. The man was released with a series of conditions, including not being present during the trial. He will make his first court appearance July 26. “I really don’t need these harassment calls. I did nothing wrong,” added Denton. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Denton questioned by RCMP before stabbing Continued from front

The witness testified while he and the accused were taking shots out of a 26-ounce bottle of whisky, they began their conversation. He explained to Crown counsel that they were “talking about life — how things happen really quick. How you wouldn’t want to stab someone because you can mess up someone’s life so quickly.” He also told Crown he knew the accused to own a buck knife but was unsure at the time if he was carrying it on him. The witness confirmed he was “pretty drunk” after he and the accused returned about four times back and forth from the festival to the track area to finish the bottle of alcohol, and confirmed to Crown he believed the accused was drunk. The suspect, dressed in a white dress shirt and black pants, avoided eye contact with the gallery but scribbled notes on a notepad and looked up at the witness as he sat in the prisoner’s dock to the right of his lawyer, Victoria-based Michael Mulligan. The 16-year-old accused cannot be identified because of the Youth Criminal Justice Act. During cross-examination, Mulligan asked the witness if, while being confronted by a larger, older group of boys near the intersection of Schellinck Drive

and Headquarters Road, it was “pretty scary for the group of boys?” “Yes,” the witness replied, and confirmed he believed the larger group was going to fight them. Monday, court heard from two RCMP witnesses — Staff Sgt. Andrew Isles and Sgt. Paul West, both of whom were on duty and attended the incident July 23. Isles testified that about an hour before the stabbing, he stopped Denton, who was standing on the side of Headquarters Road urinating into a ditch, during regular patrols of the area. Denton produced a

I was assessing his sobriety and he was telling me he was very excited about a job he just got with BC Hydro,” he said, as some friends and fam-

ily members in the gallery began to cry. “Mr. Denton had been drinking, but I had not considered him to be drunk,” Isles added. Mulligan, during cross-examination, told court Denton’s bloodalcohol level, which was taken at the hospital later in the evening, was 172 mg per 100 ml of blood, more than

concerned with the “very poor prognosis (of Denton).” Denton did not show any signs of life while lying on the ground near the intersection, West testified. Crown counsel was expected to present two more witnesses Tuesday, followed by closing statements later this week by he and Mulligan. Crown previously indicated he would seek an adult sentence if the accused is convicted.

Mulligan questioned Isles on the degree of impairment of someone with that bloodalcohol reading, which Isles said depends on a variety of factors, but could include slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and emotional highs and lows. West told court he rode with Denton in the back of the ambulance for the 10-minute ride to the hospital after he initially attended the scene because he was

One applicant addresses sea cucumber concerns Renée Andor Record Staff

More information on a controversial Baynes Sound sea cucumber tenure application will be shared at a public meeting this evening. Sea cucumbers are edible and are related to starfish — they are sometimes referred to as ‘earthworms of the sea.’ The tenure, if approved, would be 155 hectares and stretch from south Royston to north Union Bay. It would be sub-tidal, meaning fully underwater at all times. The application is for 10 to 30 years. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. (June 13) at the Union Bay Hall and is organized by the three applicants. Representatives from various government agencies involved with the application process and Vancouver Island University’s Deep Bay Shellfish Research Station will be present. Questions from the public will be addressed. Dan Bowen, one of the applicants, spoke for an allotted 10 minutes at a packed meeting Thursday, which was organized by concerned area residents. He noted the plan for the tenure includes research for one to two years —

SUE SMITH SIGNS a petition opposing a sea cucumber tenure for Baynes Sound. which would involve biologists from VIU — and the research would be new to B.C. “All we have here (in B.C.) is a wild fishery,” Bowen told area residents. “But there’s no sustainable sea cucumber operation

in B.C. except for a couple on the west coast. “There’s going to be several types of research going on and all this information is going into VIU for our biologists. It will become the basis of policy for DFO (Department of Fisheries and Oceans)

Another application filed Renée Andor Record Staff

A second application for a tenure for the purpose of growing sea cucumbers has been announced. Ken Albrecht of the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations announced the application for a 107-hectare application for Crown land tenure in Baynes Sound at a concerned area residents’ public information meeting on Thursday. According to the Ministry’s website, where the application is posted, the applicants for this tenure application are Joey Tarnowski and West Sampson. Kathy Evans, manager of aquaculture for the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations, told the Record this application’s area would stretch from just south of Union Point in Union Bay to about 300 metres north of the Buckley Bay

ferry terminal. Evans noted this application is now at the point where the applicants must advertise — to her knowledge it’s happening this week — and then there will be 30 days for public comment before the final decision is made. While she said this application is separate from the 155-hectare application stretching from north of Union Point in Union Bay to south Royston, her understanding is that Dan Bowen Consulting Services Ltd. — Dan Bowen is an applicant in the 155-hectare application — would provide consultant services to Tarnowski/ Sampson. If both applications go through, the two tenures would stretch from south of Gartley Point in Royston to just north of the Buckley Bay ferry terminal, with small breaks in between, according to a map displayed in the second application. writer@comoxvalleyrecord.com

used by the sea cucumbers when they grow bigger. “Nursery structures for the early rearing of sea cucumbers would be limited to approximately one per cent of the area of the proposed tenure,” Evans said in an e-mail. “The juvenile sea cucumbers would be contained within these ‘nurseries’ for a few months to avoid predation and would then grow outside of these. It is anticipated that the entire area (155 hectares) would be utilized by larger juveniles and adult sea cucumbers.” The length of time left to comment, which was until June 29, was another concern for opposed area residents. Bowen said he will repost the ad in local newspapers this week and the comment period would be extended to 51 days past the posting. Sue Smith, a concerned area resident, said she worried that the DFO was not represented at the meeting Thursday. “No DFO official was there. DFO is cutting scientists across Canada at the same time this project is

with regard to sea cucumber tenures.” The DFO and the Ministry of Transport (both federal) are responsible for approval of parts of the application like the aquaculture licence and zoning, and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (provincial) is responsible for approving the land tenure. The size of the tenure application is a concern for a number of those opposed. According to Bowen, juvenile sea cucumbers would live in oyster shells for predator protection and less than one per cent of the 155 hectares would house these shells. The remainder of the tenure would be left in its natural state. “In reality, it becomes a marine park because nothing will ever happen there,” he said. Kathy Evans — manager of aquaculture for the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations, one of the three government agencies involved in the application process — told the Record the rest of the area would likely be

being pushed through,” said Smith in an e-mail, adding she is also concerned about DFO monitoring if the application goes through. “Lack of DFO officials to ensure the applicant is abiding by terms of their lease. Lack of DFO officials to protect the wildlife of the area. Lack of DFO officials to return phone calls to address concerns.” Along with other area residents, Smith also wanted to know what the possibilities for reassignment of the tenure would be if the applicants decided to abandon the project. Evans confirmed neither a lease nor a licence of occupation can be sold, adding the applicants could sell their assets but the tenure belongs to the Crown and the purchaser would have to apply for it. She also said another application must be submitted to grow any species besides sea cucumbers, and if the site is no longer used for the purpose of aquaculture it must be returned to the same condition it was in before the tenure was granted. The Ministry will not consider a 30-year term due to the experimental nature of the application. Janet Thomas, another concerned area resident, said the application is premature and suggested the research component of the project be done elsewhere. Area resident Andrea Lang said she hasn’t taken a stance on the application yet. She felt some of her concerns had been addressed at Thursday’s meeting, but she still has questions and plans to attend the meeting this evening. Bowen said more information will be shared at this meeting to clear up any confusion, as misinformation has been circulating. For example, some residents originally believed geoducks, a large species of clam, were part of the application because an outdated map was included. According to Thomas, more than 200 people have signed a petition to stop the application.

Mayors Ives, Jangula winning while they’re losing Caitlin McKinnon Record Staff

Since accepting a weight-loss challenge earlier this year, Mayor Larry Jangula of Courtenay and Mayor Paul Ives of Comox have been reaping the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle. The local politicians have been measuring weight loss as a percentage of total body mass since Jan. 31. The biggest loser, to be determined June 30, will have his community’s flag flown in the other competitor’s community as a show of friendly competition. The endeavour was inspired by Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto, who pledged to lose 50 pounds over five months in his Cut the Waist campaign. Although the Toronto mayor has fallen short of his goal, local politicians are meeting their objectives with remarkable success.

PAUL IVES

LARRY JANGULA

Ives, who proposed the challenge to all the Valley’s mayors, says that although personal health issues have prevented Cumberland counterpart Mayor Baird from participating, “She is supporting the challenge in her own way.” Ives and Jangula have “accepted the challenge in good spirit” and set “personal targets to get more fit.” The competition will be close. “We’ve both lost at least 25 pounds,” Jangula explains. “We’re neck and neck, and we’re not quitting.

“My theory is we’re both winning because we’re both losing,” laughs Jangula, who has been “staying away from processed food” and working exercise into his hectic schedule. His biggest tips for weight loss? “You should walk for at least half an hour a day, drink lots of water and learn how to judge the quantity of the food you’re eating.” He also advises dieters to seek help from and conversation with loved ones, noting that his own wife has been

Bootcamp set for Comox Caitlin McKinnon Record Staff

Professional football player turned celebrity trainer Tommy Europe is hosting a “no-nonsense, tough love” fitness bootcamp June 24 at Marina Park in Comox. Europe’s Shred Bootcamp will incorporate high- and low-impact techniques to challenge participants of all fitness levels, and will include two picture/ question-and-answer sessions. The bootcamp is part of Europe’s crossCanada tour teaching efficient and effective workouts; tickets to a similar event in Europe’s hometown of Toronto have sold out. Europe has developed his SHRED philosophy on the principles of Strength, Heart, Resilience, Efficiency, and Discipline, and sets his bootcamps up “in such a way that everybody can do it.” Europe challenges participants to “get off your butt and do it” — to work “extremely hard and have a good time at the same time.” Europe has been voted Vancouver’s Best Personal Trainer in the Georgia Strait readers’ poll, and has 22 years of training experience in the fitness industry. He hosts fitness shows The Last Ten Pounds, Bulging Brides, and

Europe also feels his 11-year football career has helped him develop an expert understanding of sports movement. Winning the 1994 Grey Cup as a member of the B.C. Lions, Europe has since been inducted into the BC Hall of Fame. Prospective participants in Europe’s bootcamp can pre-register online at www.tommy-

incredibly supportive of his lifestyle changes. Jangula has been appreciative of commentary on his weight loss, and says the positive feedback has done much to fuel his motivation. He reports feeling “physically better” since beginning the challenge, and claims his energy levels have risen. Ives has also found a routine that works for him. Although it’s a struggle eating healthily and exercising while attending political conferences, Ives has worked hard to “keep it all in balance.” And while early-morning, all-weather workouts have been a tough match for Ives’ willpower, he insists these activities have been worthwhile endeavours for his own mental well-being. Ives frequents the Comox Recreation Centre, where he makes use of its state-of-theart gym and demanding spin classes. He has also purchased a road bike to supplement his exercise regimen; in addition to participating in Bike to Work Week, Ives explores the Valley from a cyclist’s perspective on regular rides. The challenge has helped Ives “enjoy

Hospital P3 meeting delayed Renée Andor Record Staff

The town hall meeting regarding the public/private partnership model of the new Comox Valley Hospital has been postponed. Sponsored by Citizens for Quality Healthcare, the information meeting was set up to discuss concerns surrounding the public/private partnership model (P3) the Vancouver Island Health Authority plans to use for the Comox Valley and Campbell River hospitals. The meeting was scheduled for June 20 at 7 p.m., but Citizens for Quality Healthcare’s Gwyn Frayne said the meeting has been pushed back due to a number of reasons. More time for research is one of them. “We’re waiting to read everything that VIHA’s putting out and read all of the information that we can from everywhere about it, and then we will be having a town hall,” said Frayne, adding a new date has not been set yet, but will be. “It is very important that we try to make the new hospitals as public as possible and that’s a top priority for our Citizens for Quality Healthcare.” Frayne also noted

THE GREAT OUTDOORS Archery was only one of many activities at the 20th annual Outdoor Recreation Show at the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association headquarters at Comox Lake. The theme for this year’s event was What’s Old is New in keeping with the association’s 75th year of operation. Other attractions included exhibits and dragon boating. PHOTO BY ERIN HALUSCHAK

organizers are trying to line up the Comox Valley with another meeting in Campbell River within one day of each other. And she said they’re still organizing speakers for the Comox Valley meeting, including two speakers from the B.C. Health Coalition and possibly, a panel of various speakers, as well as a couple of doctors. “We’ve got two local doctors lined up who are willing to come whenever we have it because they know about the system in England — which Canada is sort of following the path of England and England learned from their mistakes — so we want to bring them in and publicize those mistakes and try to make sure that we don’t make the same mistakes,” she said. Frayne also said

Play tackles bullying and homophobia in schools Renée Andor Record Staff

A G.P. Vanier Secondary play showcasing the effects of bullying and discrimination due to homophobia will be performed this week. Torn Rainbow, Sticks and Stones and Names May Break Me, was written and directed by Vanier’s head of drama and dance Lori Mazey. It has already been performed at various

schools on the Island, but will be shown at Vanier’s theatre at 8 p.m. on Wednesday and Friday, June 13 and 15. Tickets are $10 at Laughing Oyster, Videos ‘N More and the Community Justice Centre. Mazey said the message of the play is best summed up by the character Ryan’s words during the play as he speaks at a school assembly to

Don’t I deserve to spend the day without hearing insults about who I am every hour, turning every corner hoping there isn’t someone there who wants to hurt me?

❞‘Ryan’

raise awareness about homophobia. “I just want to ask — no matter what your beliefs are, how you were raised or what church you go to

— shouldn’t I be able to come to school and feel safe? Without food being thrown at me, or being slammed into a locker on my way to class?” the character

City fire hall plan proceeds Renée Andor Record Staff

Courtenay council approved Monday moving forward with plans for an East Courtenay Fire Hall and Training Centre — which could cost $9.6 million in total. The fire hall and training centre would be located at 220 Waters Pl., in a lot to the north of Home Depot behind the BC Hydro substation at Lerwick Road and Waters Place. The land was acquired by the City for this purpose in 2005, but the project has been bumped back in the City’s financial plan in an effort to coincide the new fire hall and training centre with the completion of the new Comox Valley Hospital. The new Comox Valley Hospital is slated for land across Lerwick Road from the fire hall and training site, at the intersection of Ryan and Lerwick Roads. According to a report to council from City director of financial services Tillie Manthey, Courtenay has grown considerably over the past 10 years, with the east side expected to continue

growing, as well as the west and south. “With development anticipated to continue, the current fire hall will have an increased frequency of responses to deal with,” said Manthey in her report. “It is appropriate to move forward over the next five years with definitive plans for the provision of fire protection services in east Courtenay.” The project, which is expected to begin next year and reach completion in 2015, is estimated to cost about $9.6 million in total — about $2 million more than what is listed in the City’s five-year financial plan. According to the report, there would be some capital funding from the City’s own sources but the City would have to borrow substantially to fund the project. However, the cost of the project will vary depending on the inclusion of the Comox Valley Emergency Program and Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue, which has space slated in this plan totalling over $1.7 million. Part of the motion passed

by council includes discussing whether the two groups will use the space. Blair Pettis of Fletcher Pettis Consultants Ltd. presented an overview of the project and he noted the City could lease space to the emergency groups. Grubbing and clearing of the land is set to start in 2013. The training centre would be completed in 2014 and feature a drive around training area where trainees could practise putting out vehicle fires for example. It would also feature a burn building. The fire hall would cost just over $6.5 million and be constructed in 2015. It would feature a two-bedroom apartment enabling firefighters to stay onsite at all times and enhance fire protection. A training room on the second floor could double as an emergency operation centre in the event of a disaster. Pettis noted the plans have room for further expansion. The plans will be further refined and meetings will be held with potential user groups.

asks. “Don’t I deserve to spend the day without hearing insults about who I am every hour, turning every corner hoping there isn’t someone there who wants to hurt me? Don’t I deserve to feel safe where I go to school? Safe to be myself?” Mazey noted The Laramie Project, a play based on interviews, inspired her to write this play using student interviews to tell their story of homophobia at high schools. She added she’s seen many plays about bullying and discrimination at high schools, but not many that focus on homophobia. Thirteen Vanier students are in the cast ranging from Grades 10 to 12, plus one graduated student. A handful of students also worked behind the scenes performing technical tasks. The play has been shown in other school districts, including Nanaimo, Port Alberni and Campbell River. Mazey said reaction to the play has been varied. “It has been very, very,

very interesting watching the audiences,” she said. “One audience member says the play gave her goosebumps, while another at another school asks how he can help, and another at another school finds a way to leave to go to the bathroom and doesn’t come back. One audience member crossed his arms and

didn’t applaud while those around him did — and another entire audience rose to their feet applauding.” The play is presented by Community Justice Theatre Projects. Mazey said justice centre chief administrator Bruce Curtis was integral in making the play possible. writer@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Arrowsmith big band ending season This Thursday marks the end of the Georgia Straight Jazz Society’s 2011-2012 performance year. The season closes with a flourish as Oceanside’s Arrowsmith Big Band takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. on June 14. The band will bring a new program of modern big band arrangements — a perfect mix for an early summer evening at the club! Last year in early December 2011, the band once again stunned the audience with its high professional standard of performance, and received a standing ovation. This appearance will no doubt be equal, since these musicians perform more for their own joy of perfection than for public concerts. Some of the best arrangers in the field have contributed charts for the program. In addition to arranging legends Sammy Nestico and Bill Holman, there are also contributions from West Coast arrangers including Bob Florence, Tom Kubis and Vancouver’s own Fred Stride. Mix in with that some great charts originally written for the bands of Stan Kenton, Maynard Ferguson, Duke Ellington and Thad Jones/Mel Lewis, and there will certainly be something for everyone’s taste. The band’s personnel include three well-known faces to Comox Valley music fans. Paul Nuez leads the trombone section, which also includes Andrew Gray on bass trombone, and Rachel Fuller (already a great favourite in her own name) is featured in the sax section. As before, the soloists will include Claudio Fantinato and Dan Craven on saxes and Dave Stewart and Greg Bush on trumpets. And look out for a vocal or two from guitarist Colin Campbell. The band is always extremely happy to make its regular visits to the club, and looks forward to playing for the appreciative and knowledgeable Valley audience. If you have heard them play on any of their previous visits, then you’ll know what to expect. Next season’s program is already in the planning phase and the society looks forward to presenting the finest local jazz musicians in the region in 20122013 with another 40 or so Thursday performances, plus a series of ticketed Sunday concerts. This year has been quite remarkable; attendance has risen, as has the calibre and diversity of live jazz. Thank you to the Elks’ See OUTDOOR, 12

KIM BANNERMAN FLEES from a zombie in a film by Shawn Pigott (below).

Filmmaker has 52-week‘opportunity’ Paula Wild Record Arts

Fifty-two weeks. For most people that gets divided up into work time, holidays, seasonal activities and special occasions like birthdays. For some, a week is something to get through, not necessarily to enjoy. And for others it is a creative opportunity. Last year, filmmaker, musician and photographer Shawn Pigott decided to do something different with his next 52 weeks. He pledged to release an original video on YouTube every week. Each video would be comprised of totally new material and would be accompanied by music and a blog. As I write this, Pigott is working on Week 39 and is right on schedule. “Thursdays and Fridays can be stressful,” the Cumberland resident admits. “Those are the days I figure out what the next video will be. Ideally I film over the weekend, edit early in the week and release the video on Wednesday.” The videos range from three to 10 minutes and take anywhere from five to 15 or more hours to create. The most complex project to date, The Great Hiccup of 2012, involved six locations and 24 Grade 3 students from Mrs. Twin’s class at Cumberland Elementary School. “Week 18 required obtaining permissions and co-ordinating the logistics and costumes,” says

Pigott. “It was a challenge but a lot of fun.” Topics for the videos range from family trips to grief and run the gamut from animated fantasy to real-life scenario. One of the most popular videos was Before All Hallows, which Pigott filmed during Week 5. Set in Cumberland, the zombie clip includes gruesome makeup, a scary situation and a humorous twist at the end. All videos are available for viewing on YouTube, as well as Pigott’s website. Challenges in the year-long

project include the weather, the dark, short days of winter, plans falling through or his young son falling asleep. There have been days when Pigott’s been tempted to give up, but somehow each week, a new video gets filmed, edited and released. The filmmaker has called on family and friends to star in his creations and explored every aspect of Cumberland’s unique architecture. Now he’s looking for new actors and locations. “I don’t need professional actors, just people who are willing to be in front of a camera and perhaps say a few lines,” explains Pigott. “As for locations, these could be restaurants, a mortuary, a beauty shop or whatever. I love to take reality, add one variable and see what happens.” Pigott was born in Victoria and grew up in the Okanagan. During high school he developed a passion for science and the arts. That led to science-focused studies at the University of B.C. But he hated it. So he switched to Emily Carr University. And hated that, too. “I finally realized that what I loved was the combination of science and art,” says Pigott. “I crave the problem solving of science, as well as the diversity of the arts. Filmmaking satisfies both those needs.” Pigott was hosting a murder mystery event for a youth group when Kim Bannerman filled in for an actor that couldn’t make it. Marriage followed and, in 2006, they moved to Cumberland. Their

family now includes Zoe, 6, and Linus, nearly 2. “We didn’t want to raise our kids in the city,” says Pigott. “And Kim’s family roots go way back in Cumberland. We discussed it, and given her skill set and mine, it made more sense for her to have the 9 to 5 job and for me to look after the kids and freelance from home.” He films, edits and composes music, as well as builds special effects and creates two and threedimensional animation. He also has hundreds of royalty-free musical compositions available for purchase through iStock. Pigott’s 52 Weeks started last Sept. when a large video project fell through at the last minute. “I was ready to work so came up with my own project,” he says. His goal is twofold. The first is to build a portfolio of work that is readily accessible for viewing. The second is to take what he’s learning and apply it to a specific project in the future. “What I’m creating with 52 Weeks is very diverse,” he says. “After that’s over I want to start a series of videos revolving around one theme.” A countdown contest is planned for the final segments of 52 Weeks, as well as a screening of some of the videos. To check them out now, visit www.foxandbee.com. If you’re interested in taking part in a video or providing a location, contact Pigott at hello@foxandbee. com.

Battle of the Bands back

THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT Jazz Society season ends Thursday with a performance by the Arrowsmith Big Band from Oceanside.

Outdoor summer jazz concert coming Continued from page 11

Lodge 60 for making their home our home each week. ••• The Georgia Straight Jazz Society is planning an outdoor summer evening jazz event on Aug. 11 in conjunc-

tion with the Gardens On Anderton. You will see posters and press releases for this event around our region within the next few weeks. ••• The Elks intend to offer live music on Thursday eve-

Corre will celebrate surrealism Cumberland gallery will offer several films June 16 Mid-June is heating up with a marvellously exciting night of surrealism in film with live musical scores at Corre Alice Gallery in Cumberland. Presented by the Inner Island Surrealist Group in conjunction with the collective’s debut show Funeral of Empire, which has been held over for the duration of June due to popular response, the evening will focus on the imaginative and subversive potential of film and music. Providing a textured and extremely varied soundtrack of diverse sounds will be the Frog Orchard Assassins, a collaboration of improvising creative musicians from the Comox Valley and Vancouver. Featuring the short experimental films of internationally acclaimed Czech surrealist Jan Svankmajer (Darkness, Light, Darkness, Etcetera, A Game of Stones), American animator, ethnographer and mystic Harry Smith (Early Abstractions) and the 1969 film adaptation of Max Ernst’s 1929 collage novel La femme 100 tetes by Eric Duvivier. The gallery is also very proud to feature The Affair (1975 10 minutes) starring longtime

Courtenay resident and widely admired esoteric artist Manuel Fernandez. Directed by internationally awarded Rafal Zielinski, The Affair (shot in Montreal in 1975) was Rafal’s ambitious experimental short film debut in his now-successful movie career. Zielinski gave Man-

uel carte blanche to improvise ��� no second takes during filming. Fernandez’ (an experimental modern dance theatre performer and teacher of “living events” for many years) performance is a triumph of the improvisational and creative spirit that takes us on a wondrous adventure

of movement through the ambiance of mid70s Montreal. The evening of film surrealism happens this Saturday. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $5 to $10, based on a sliding scale. Ginger tea will be available for a small donation. — Corre Alice Gallery

All about the Uchuck

GUITARIST STEVE BROCKLEY performs with his trio June 19 at the Cumberland Hotel.

Brockley bringing‘badassness’ Each year, MusicFest introduces some great new artists to our community who often end up becoming many people’s best new finds. Last year, Steve Brockley was just such a find and he is returning to the Comox Valley on June 19 for a full night of music at the Cumberland Hotel. Born in B.C., formed in Montreal, and currently based out of a Buick wood-panelled wagon, Brockley has somehow convinced Kevin Bertram (upright bass) and Leon Power (drums, mandolin) that this is a good idea. Maybe it helps that the numbers of the convinced have been growing since beginning a relentless tour schedule in March 2010 in support of their first full length album. After winning audiences over in Montreal, the musical brothership wasted no time taking it to the road. At the root of what’s going on here are the songs — songs that other songwriters are already covering. And if you come for the songs you’ll stay for the musicianship. You’ve got a lot to

Imagine if Gillian Welch married ❝ Stevie Wonder and the baby jumped out wearing cowboy boots and driving a wood-panelled station wagon named John Candy. I love these guys!

❞ Miss Emily Brown

choose from between Bertram’s percussive double bass swagger, Power’s grunt-worthy beats and Brockley’s finger-picked electric guitar tactics. “Imagine if Gillian Welch married Stevie Wonder and the baby jumped out wearing cowboy boots and driving a wood-panelled station wagon named John Candy. I love these guys!” — Miss Emily Brown. Originally from Vernon, after a few years gigging and touring as a sideman on guitar, Brockley eventually made his way to Montreal on New Year’s Day 2008 to start anew as a songwriter. Fitting right into the local music scene, he soon found himself on tour as guitarist for the infamous United Steel Workers of Montreal, also playing some opening slots along the

way. No longer able to divide his energy between two hardworking acts, his solo act quickly expanded to a trio, and during a break in touring, they recorded their selftitled debut album, a nine-song, live-off-thefloor, analog jewel. After a very busy year of club dates and house shows, 2011 saw the boys being welcomed to the Canadian festival circuit playing five festivals last summer including Vancou-

ver Island MusicFest. Though the band’s knowledge and repertoire of traditional folk music is apparent, they’re able to take the style in new directions without making the audience feel uprooted. You may hear John Hurt in the guitar, Hank, Townes, or Bob in the lyrics, and maybe a touch of blue-eyed soul in the voice. Since MusicFest started their concert series last year at The Cumberland Hotel, it has become the Valley’s most popular new ‘folk club’-styled venue. Tickets are on sale at the Cumberland Hotel. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., with the show at 8:30. Call 250-336-8844 for more information. — Vancouver Island MusicFest

The Comox Valley Writers’ Society and the Laughing Oyster Bookshop present David Essson Young, local author and former shipmaster of the Uchuck, who will launch his book. The Uchuck Years: A West Coast Shipping Saga will be unveiled at the Muir Gallery in Courtenay on June 19 at 7 p.m. Young will read tales about his 40 years of experience working on the last of Canada’s historic coastal shipping lines. The Uchuck Years is a fascinating account of the life on the wild west coast of Vancouver Island, and the shipping company — whose entire fleet was named Uchuck — that provided a lifeline to civilization. Young started as a youngster with the

company and later grew up to become senior master, president and part-owner. The Uchuck Years abounds with stories and fond memories of unique coastal characters, including logging camp bosses and

genius engineers. It is an enthralling historic account of one of B.C.’s most fascinating regions, written by someone who lived most of his life in the heart of it. — Comox Valley Writers’ Society

Young Professionals helps Habitat closer to home-building The Young Professionals Comox Valley (YPCV) raised $6,100 recently in a Spring Gala and Fundraiser to benefit the Habitat for Humanity. With an ambitious goal of $10,000, attendees bid on silent auction items, a balloon pop draw and a 50/50 at Crown Isle. It was attended by 130 YPCV members and guests. “We can’t thank our guests and sponsors enough for their support,” says Jill Rushton, YPCV special events executive and sales and events manager with

the Old House Village Hotel and Spa. “I was astounded at the response from our community getting behind this event,” says Rushton. The YPCV thanks major sponsors the Vancouver island Real Estate Board, Vancouver Island InsuranCentres and Hub Insurance. YPCV will make up one of 10 teams under the JET-FM umbrella. which will build homes with Habitat for Humanity here in the Comox Valley. The fundraising

doesn’t stop for this emerging group. Their eyes are still set on surpassing their goal of $10,000 and asking YPCV members to volunteer on the build day itself. They are looking for more community support by being the first of the JET-FM team to reach their goal. To support the YPCV team anyone can donate online to the YPCV Habitat for Humanity Team page by following the link from www.facebook. com/ypcomoxvalley or www.ypcomoxvalley.

Experiencing our local estuary

Volunteers honoured at Glacier View Glacier View Lodge honoured its volunteers recently with a special ceremony. “Our volunteers are a diverse group — from the board of directors to those who hostess at meal times, from readers to our auxiliary fundraisers, from the many musicians to those who help us in the gardens,” noted Liz Friis, director of resident lifestyle and community programs. “We are grateful for the things you do to enhance the quality of life for the residents living at the Lodge.” Members of our community contributed an amazing 9,000+ hours of service last year. Volunteer awards were presented. Recipient of the 2012 Glacier View Lodge Volunteer of the Year Individual Award is Grace Luck. Grace has spent each Tuesday afternoon over the past eight years leading a reading group. It is a treat for those who can no longer read independently to have quality reading material selected and read so beautifully. Co-recipient of the Indi-

Volunteer Group of the Year are our Youth volunteers. Glacier View has been lucky this year to have a great group of teenagers involved in our youth program. Presenting the Award, activity aide Louise Stevens said, “You are an outstanding group of young people. We really appreciate your involvement at Glacier View Lodge. You are all caring and giving young people with brilliant futures

ahead. Our thanks and congratulations to Slava Zakharchuk, Andy Boray, Nic Lunenburg, Kaleigh Privett, Casey Watamaniuk and Vanessa Trif.” Glacier View Lodge needs hostesses to assist at mealtimes, and always appreciates more one-to-one visitors. If you are interested in these or any other volunteer positions, read the volunteer information at www.glacierviewlodge.ca. — Glacier View Lodge

You’re invited to see the amazing diversity of fish species in the Courtenay River estuary, in one of the best spots for viewing fish, on the next Experience the Estuary activity this Saturday. This outing is the next in the series of events co-ordinated by Project Watershed Society and the Estuary Working Group, part of the ‘Keeping it Living 2012’ campaign raising awareness for the protection and restoration of the Courtenay River (K’ómoks) Estuary. This outing will be led by Dave Davies of DFO. “We will walk along the estuary through the salt marsh meadows to the outlet of Dike Slough, a site that most residents of the Comox Valley pass very close to while driving along Dike Road and never notice,” says Davies. “I will give a short talk at the site on

how and why estuaries are important to salmon and other fish species. “We will observe the operation of the tide gates that control water flow into Dike Slough. With the help of Project Watershed volunteers, we will then conduct a beach seine and examine the fish we capture.” Meet at the Rotary viewing stand on the Dike Road at 9:30 a.m. The activity will go till about noon and all are welcome. Participants should wear boots or water sandals for the shoreline walk through salt marsh meadows, muddy shallows and across a shallow stream. The outing is by donation ($5 to $10 suggested) with proceeds going to the ‘Keeping it Living 2012’ campaign. For more information contact estuary.projectwatershed@gmail.com. Visit www.keepingitliving.ca for coming activities and more detail on the campaign, which includes an art auction, flotilla parade on July 28 and other events. — Project Watershed

Fundraiser set for Black Creek Record Staff It takes a lot of talent to get to the Olympics. It also takes a lot of money. Cameron Levins’ talents booked him a ticket to London for the 2012 Summer Games, now his hometown community of Black Creek is holding a fundraiser to

help get his family members to England. Everyone is welcome to the Black Creek Hall on Friday, June 22 (beginning at 6 p.m.) for a barbecue to help celebrate Levins’ accomplishments. Admission is free, fundraising will include the food and a silent auction. For more information, contact 250-3375671.

knew who the contenders were going to be and I felt like I had the strongest finishing speed,” Levins told a reporter. “I just wanted to wait around; everyone else had to build their strategy off my finish.” Levins dropped the hammer at 200 metres, finishing more than two seconds ahead of Sambu (28:09.52) and breaking the 32-year-old Drake Stadium record (28:07.40) with his 28:07.14 finish. The 23-year-old said giving Southern Utah its first national title was big motivation for him. “That was the big goal for me,” Levins said. “I wanted to leave them with that. They gave me the opportunity to run and improve. I am so thankful for that and to give back to them.” Levin’s victory was also motivation for many of the students at his alma mater in Courtenay, G.P. Vanier Secondary School, who, as luck would have it, were attending their annual athletic banquet and watching the race on the big screen. “We had a packed gym of students, parents and coaches who witnessed the race,” said Larry Street, Vanier’s athletic director. “As fate would have it, we were also inducting Cam into our Sports Wall of Fame, and did that immediately after the race. As you can imagine there were many tears of joy, and hearts pumping big last night.” Levins’ finish earned him his fourth All-American citation this year after finishing fourth at the NCAA Cross Country National Championships, fourth in the men’s 5,000-metres and third in the men’s 3,000metres at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. FINISH LINES Levins has A-plus Olympic-qualifying times in both the 5K and 10K and need only finish third in either event at the Canadian Olympic trials in Calgary in late June to clinch a spot in London ... he is considering running both events in London, although he favours the 5K ... the Olympic 10K is Aug. 4 with the 5K heats four days later ... Levins was added to the Bowerman Watch List Wednesday — the equivalent of the Heisman for long-distance runners ... sports@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Green goes yard twice for Brewers Earle Couper

and ripped a two-run homer, helping Milwaukee defeat the visiting San Diego Padres 9-5. Green, who has been playing first and third base, is now hitting .246 with two homers and 10 RBI this season. After his first MLB four-bagger, the 25-year-old Green told the Milwaukee Journal Sentiel: “It’s a real nice feeling. It felt great coming off the bat, just like any home run. This one was a little better.” Green got the ball back from the fan who caught it in a post-game trade for a bat.

Record Staff

Boom goes the dynamite. In fact it boomed twice for Taylor Green last week as the Comox native blasted a pair of pinch-hit home runs to help the Milwaukee Brewers post impressive MLB wins. His first Major League dinger came June 6. Pinch hitting in the eighth inning, the former Parksville Royal smacked a three-run shot to right field off Chicago Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol in the Brewers 8-0 win at Miller Park. Two nights later, Green was pinch hitting in the seventh

Courtenay’s Geoff Kabush is on Cycling Canada Cyclisme’s list of athletes who have qualified for the 2012 Olympic Selection Pool for Mountain Bike, a short-list group of riders from which the 2012 Olympic Cycling Team will be drawn. “The Canadian mountain bike program has developed significantly over the past four years. We have exceptional riders on both the men’s and women’s side of the program. It’s an exciting time for our sport with several riders set to continue Canada’s rich tradition of success,” said Dan Proulx, head coach of the Canadian Mountain Bike Team. Kabush (Team SCOTT-3RoxRacing) is one of six men to make the short list, which was released June 10. “Two-time Olympian (Sydney, 2000; Beijing, 2008) and 2009 World Cup winner, Geoff Kabush is one of the most easily recognized athletes thanks to his trademark facial hair. For 2012,” notes Maxxis on their website. Kabush got into mountain biking while still in high school in Courtenay after he attended his first Mountain Bike World championship in 1995. Slowly moving through the mountain biking ranks, Kabush represented Canada at the 2004 Sydney Olympics. Career highlights: • 2x Olympian (9th Sydney 2000, 20th Beijing

C.V. TENNIS CLUB vice-president Michael Gould appears to be the victim of a friendly “overhead” smash.

Any two for tennis? The Comox Valley Tennis Club welcomes one and all to their Any Two For Tennis tournament from June 22 to June 24. Registration is on the www. cvtennis.com website or www. karelo.com. “We’re looking forward to another weekend of nonstop good times, lots of tennis,

good food, friends and laughter,” said tennis club vice-president Michael Gould. “All skill levels are welcome. If you don’t have a partner, we will help find you one. So come on all you sultans of swat, let’s have a blast! See you on the courts.” – Comox Valley Tennis Club

Summer hoops camp Young basketball enthusiasts of the Comox Valley and all over the North Island are preparing for the 2012 Comox Valley Summer Basketball Camp. Now in its 24th year, this year’s camp goes July 2-6 at G.P. Vanier and Lake Trail schools. A full week of hoops is being headed up by longtime coaches Larry Street of G.P. Vanier and Don Herman of Maple Ridge Secondary. Both have a couple of thousand games of experience between them. Both have coached numerous provincial teams, and both are committed to teach young people the proper way to play the game. Joining the coaching staff is former Towhee and OkanaganUBC player Taylen Busch, as well as current coach and former player at Vanier and at Vancouver Island University Blake Tobacca. “We will fill the coaching staff with other former players and current grads of the program,” Street said. The camp is for boys and girls and will be divided into three: a morning session 9 a.m. to noon for Grade 4-7 boys at Lake Trail Middle School, a morning session 9 a.m. to noon at G.P. Vanier for the older boys going into Grades 8 to 11, and an

afternoon session for all girls at G.P. Vanier from 1 to 4 p.m. “All the coaches will be sticking to the mantra of emphasizing basic fundamentals,” Street said. “This summer camp also stresses the finer points of ‘how to make yourself a better one-on-one player’ while also teaching players how to think on the floor. Your shot will be scrutinized and tweaked, and you will

be shown many oneon-one moves from all positions.” The camp is open to anyone on Vancouver Island, and Street notes players have come from as far as Japan to join in the fun. For more information, contact Street at lstreet@sd71. bc.ca or street.car1@ shaw.ca. Phone 250338-4943. – Comox Valley Summer Basketball Camp

This event was the brainchild of Georgia Colclough and Sherri Ruedig who saw fastball as a way to enjoy their sport while raising money to support a local ballplaying family,” tourney spokesperson Jill Cornwell said.

With swim lessons, your children will learn safe diving guidelines that will stick with them for life. Things like “feet first the first time,” and “head up, hands up, angle up.” Ninety per cent of people who are seriously injured while diving are confined to a wheelchair for life.

Presented by: Native Gallery & Gift Shop

COMOX VALLEY NATURE president Loys Maingon (left) and Frank Hovenden will share their knowledge and expertise on the art of Garry oaks ecosystem cultivation. PHOTO BY KERRY DAWSON

Oaks focus of workshop Comox Valley Nature (Comox Valley Naturalists) and the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy (CVCS) are working together to protect, restore and re-establish Garry oak trees and habitat in the Comox Valley. Together, they will host a free public workshop on the art and science of Garry oaks gardening on June 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Tsolum School (2505 Smith Road on the Inland Island Highway). The workshop will cover the basics of planting and nurturing Garry oaks, as well as the role and importance of Garry oaks ecosystem species such as camas, chocolate lily and western buttercup. Workshop presenters will include two of the authors of the Garry Oak Gardeners Workbook: Louise Goulet of the Garry Oak Ecosystem Recovery Team and Kathy Dunster, a local landscape architect. Additional presenters include Frank Hovenden, a retired forester and former president of Comox Valley Nature, and Fred Hook, a Garry oaks restoration spe-

cialist with the City of Victoria. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to participate in the planning of a potential Garry oaks garden to be planted on the grounds of Tsolum School. The workshop is part of the first phase of an ambitious Garry oaks planting initiative launched by Comox Valley Nature in April. Loys Maingon, a professional biologist and the current president of CV Nature, will be on hand to discuss the CVN planting initiative. “Our goal is to systematically plant a thousand oaks east of the Tsolum River from Courtenay to Headquarters and Merville by 2020, in collaboration with landowners,” said Maingon. To register for this free workshop (though donations toward the CVN Planting Initiative will be happily accepted), contact Kerry Dawson at kerryadaw@yahoo.ca. Participants should bring a brown bag lunch, as only coffee and tea will be provided. — Comox Valley Nature

Elder James Quatell teaching on “Empowering Our Spirit” in our Big House: We all have some inner strength to work on and what you do is pick a bead for each strength you need to work on, put it in a cloth, and wrap it in red wool and carry it with you or place in a safe space. A table will be set up in I-Hos Gallery June 1st - to June 21st for you to create your bundle. Our elder will do a prayer for everyone and your bundle of cloth and beads in the Big House on June 21st. And it will give you the power and strength you are looking for. Beads/Cloth purchased in I-Hos Gallery by donation recommended $2.50 and up. “Seven Sacred Teachings” The Seven Sacred Teachings have been handed down through the generation, to guide us on our human journey. We have been told that when we follow these teachings, our lives will be guided and we will practice peace, joy and harmony with all life forms. The practice of spiritual self care through smudging is one of the gifts that we have also been given as a people. Join us as we bring the Seven Sacred Teachings to life and demonstrate ways to connect that are rooted in our Ancestry.

COMOX VALLEY RECORD • Wednesday, June 13, 2012

French students in print Seven students from école Au-coeur-de-l’île in Comox, a francophone public school, have the privilege of seeing their literary works in print in a very select prose and poetry review. Voices Visible is an anthology of the best prose and poetry written in English by Grade 7 to 12 students. The contest is open to all public and private schools in British Columbia. The students of école Au-coeur-de-l’île participated in this contest through their English class. Their teacher, Monica Ashwell, submitted their short stories and poems to the 23rd annual competition organized by the BC Teachers of English Language Arts Association (BCTELA). More than a thousand entries throughout the province were reviewed and only 63 pieces were selected for publication, including nine short stories and poems written by seven students from école Au-coeur-de-l’île. This prose and poetry anthology was made available at the end of May and will be distributed to all the members of the BC Teachers of English Language Arts, who can then use them in their classrooms as a teaching resource. To read the works of Chantal Caron, Josh Martin, Isaiah Rainville, Kai Beaton, Marika Conarroe, Julie Pickett and Sébastien Lavoie, you can visit the Conseil scolaire francophone website at www.csf.bc.ca. — école Au-coeurde-l’île

RON WEBBER (CENTRE) of the Comox Valley Community Foundation helped Abbeyfield House residents Lucy Stewart and Actur Neilsen to formally open a new walkway for residents.

New walkway for seniors Comox Valley foundation helped project to happen Fifteen years ago Ron Webber, in his role as mayor, participated in the opening ceremonies for Abbeyfield House seniors’ residence in Courtenay. Last Saturday, Webber returned to the home to cut the ribbon formally opening a new walkway for the residents.

Webber is a director of the Comox Valley Community Foundation, which funded a substantial portion of the cost of the walkway that extends around the property to provide a safe exercise area for residents. In his remarks Webber praised Abbeyfield as an “undiscovered gem” of the Comox Valley. He explained that the foundation uses the interest from its $3-million assets to assist individuals through scholarships

and non-profit societies through grants to help them finance community projects. The ceremony and open house on Saturday helped to mark 25 years of the Abbeyfield movement in Canada. The 10-suite local facility, like others nationally and around the world, strives to provide affordable seniors housing through a nonprofit society that relies on volunteers and community support. — Abbeyfield House

Special day for K’ómoks

RONALD ST. PIERRE (right) of Locals Restaurant and George Ehrler of Blue Moon Winery are combining to offer A Medieval Solstice Feast on June 20. It happens at Nature’s Way Farm, home to Blue Moon Winery.

Summer solstice celebrated soon What do you get when you pair an award-winning winemaker with an award-winning chef on the longest day of the year? A knight to remember, of course. Blue Moon Winery and Locals Restaurant present A Medieval Solstice Feast on June 20. The summer solstice celebrates the turning point in our growing season, following a tradition recognized by many cultures around the world. Present day farmers, like our farmer ancestors, pay close attention to seasonal changes, as they influence planting, growing and harvest times. The significance of the solstice is not limited to agriculture. The ancient Egyptians built the Great Pyramids so that the sun, when viewed from the Sphinx, set pre-

cisely between two of the Pyramids on this particular day. The Inca of South America celebrated with the Inti Raymi ceremony, which included food offerings and sacrifices of animals, and maybe even people. Possibly the most famous recognition of the summer solstice is Stonehenge in England. You can celebrate the solstice in style with chef Ronald St. Pierre and winemaker George Ehrler in the intimate gathering room at Nature’s Way Farm, home to Blue Moon Winery. Join them for an enchanting evening of excellent local food, wine, and medieval games and dance lessons with Halima AlRakkasa. The dress code is medievally themed with prizes for the best costume and best drinking goblet.

“We like to use the word convivial to describe what we are doing at the farm,” Ehrler said. St. Pierre appreciates the intimacy of the gathering room. “I am able to talk with our guests as I prepare their meal,” he said. Tickets for the feast and for an optional wine pairing are available at Locals Restaurant at 364 Eighth St. in Courtenay (250-3386493) or through Blue Moon Winery at 250-

338-9765. Tickets are limited. Visit www.bluemoonwinery.ca for more.

Do you know someone who has ever looked at a piece of technology and said, “I can do better!” and then gone out and done it? Or how about the creative thinker who saw a problem and came up with the sort of solution that makes you wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?” The Mid-Island Science Technology and Innovation Council (MISTIC) wants to

hear about them. Nominations are open for the seventh annual MISTIC Innovation Awards, which recognize the achievements of technology-based businesses and individuals across Vancouver Island (north of the Malahat), the Sunshine Coast and Gulf Islands. “The region is a natural hub for innovation and a great place to start and grow a tech-

nology business,” says MISTIC executive director Paris Gaudet. “The region’s science and technology sector continues to grow, innovate and change the economic landscape. “It is up to all of us to ensure that everyone knows about the diverse opportunities available to our youth and the significant impact our sector has on the regional economy.

Maximizing outdoor living When you think about a ‘getaway,’ most people think of camping or even leaving the Valley. There are exceptions, however. For those who have had the opportunity to work with experienced landscaper-craftsman, Rick Coppick, they know that a getaway can be right outside their front or back doors. With the growing demand for his services, Coppick is pleased to announce the official opening of his landscape-hardscape installation company, GreatScapes Installations. Whether a homeowner wants to revitalize an area of a yard — giving it a different use or feel — or to build outdoor living space from scratch, GreatScapes can handle the job. Coppick enjoys collaborating on design and contributing his expertise to that process for clients. His favourite moment, however, is when all the work is over and he can stand back to take a look and hears his client say, ‘Wow.’

Protesters’ tactics dubious We should have known right away that there was something odd about a Raven coal mine protest June 4 in downtown Courtenay. A group of young protesters demonstrated “boisterously” as the Comox Valley RCMP described it outside the Bank of Montreal. They banged on windows and doors at the bank, police said, adding that demonstrators yelled at staff and police. Some blocked traffic while others climbed onto the roof of the bank and hung a banner proclaiming: BMO Supports Coal. Stop the Mine! Police said protesters frightened bank employees and members of the public. These and other clues indicated this was an organized protest by as-yet-unidentified out-oftown agitators. While dogged in their efforts to oppose the Raven underground coal mine proposed for the hills overlooking Baynes Sound, local protesters have been respectful with the exception of some remarks yelled at MP John Duncan during the 2011 Empire Days parade in Cumberland. CoalWatch supporters are also not in the habit of wearing bandanas to conceal their identities, as some of the June 4 protesters did. CoalWatch members live here, whereas people wearing bandanas — some of whom fled at the first sight of police — do not. If these people were from CoalWatch, we would know where to send the bill to remove signs that were glued to buildings. CoalWatch Comox Valley president John Snyder said he didn’t even know about the protest. Whoever they were, their actions could easily discredit local protesters. Scaring bank employees, leaving literature strewn on the ground and causing a cleanup bill that RCMP estimate could run over $2,000 is not going to stop the coal mine or gain local support. As well, family and friends of James Denton and supporters of the young offender accused of killing him could not have been impressed as they gathered outside the nearby courthouse preparing for the start of an emotional murder trial. editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com Record Question of the Week This week: Eighty-six per cent of respondents so far say the C-38 omnibus federal legislation sets a dangerous precedent by including too much in one bill.

Smart meter facts revealing Dear editor, “It only takes a few minutes on the computer to learn the facts,” said V. Beaton in the letters column on May 31. So, I decided to spend a few minutes to learn the facts, rather than simply watching a few YouTube videos that went on about the various hazards. It seems the people protesting the smart meters have three main complaints: They are worried about possible health implications, they think it is a poorly hidden plan by BC Hydro to raise rates, and they view it as a privacy threat. Let’s look at each of these concerns with some facts. Are smart meters a risk to anyone’s health? They do produce measurable amounts of non-ionizing radiation. However, so does that large glowing orb we usually see in the sky this time of year. According to the product website, the meters operate for about 80 seconds a day, at 0.61 mW/cm^2. Now, I have no idea if that’s high or low, but fortunately, a few more minutes on the computer tell me that the sun’s “non-ionizing radiation” output at sea level is 137 mW/cm^2 (or about 200 times more, and we usually see the sun for more than 80 seconds a day — maybe not this year). Others have pointed out that Wi-Fi as used by the smart meters is “classified as a 2B carcinogen.” Keep in mind that the 2B classification is for *possible* carcinogens. That is, there is limited evidence, but they are still looking into it. Or to put it another way, there have been some studies showing risk and others none, including a recent long-term study in Europe that showed no effect. Still, if you want to err on the side of cau-

tion, here are a few other class 2B carcinogens you may want to avoid: coffee, gasoline, pickled vegetables, talcum powder (baby’s not going to be happy), and carpentry. “The new meters aren’t CSA approved.” It does seem odd, but looking at my existing one, I don’t see a CSA logo on it either. One final point on the health prospects: do the people fearing

As with the health ❝ concerns, I hope those worried about the privacy also never use credit cards, debit cards, or customer loyalty cards, as all of these are more of a privacy concern than the smart meters.

these devices not realize that BC Hydro employees (including those who made the decision to put the meters in place) live in B.C., so they will have smart meters on their houses. Would they decide to put dangerous products on their own homes? What about the possibility of BC Hydro switching to time-ofday billing, or otherwise raising your bill? Well, BC Hydro has repeatedly said that they aren’t looking at time-of-day billing, and even if they were, they would have to go through the utilities commission to implement it. Is it worthwhile to complain about something that BC Hydro *might* try to do in the future (and as the current round of the utilities commission show, even if they want to raise our rates, the government doesn’t have to let them). Finally, we come to the privacy

concerns. Certainly it is the most difficult to immediately dismiss. Yes, these meters — by design — will provide more information to BC Hydro. What kind of information? Well, they’ll be able to tell: “something that is using about 150W just turned on.” They don’t know what just turned on (or off); they just know the power consumption. I doubt very much if they will have some database around that could identify your refrigerator from your electric hedge trimmer from your TV. As with the health concerns, I hope those worried about the privacy also never use credit cards, debit cards, or customer loyalty cards, as all of these are more of a privacy concern than the smart meters. Oh, and they’ll probably want to close their Facebook accounts, and stop doing any searching on the Internet as well. What about the benefits of smart meters? We have been repeatedly told by BC Hydro and other utilities that the main issue preventing moving towards broader adoption of wind, solar and other renewable resources is the need for a “smarter grid.” Smart meters are a step in that process, so I look forward to BC Hydro taking that step. In addition, they will allow us to better monitor and reduce our power consumption. In conclusion, are smart meters dangerous? Not likely. Are they a Trojan horse for BC Hydro’s rates? They can’t change their rates on their own, so no. What about the privacy concerns? Pretty minimal I’d say. Those spreading the fear about them really should take a few minutes to learn the facts. Shane Kretky, Comox


OPINION

www.comoxvalleyrecord.com

Kudos to coal mine protesters Dear editor, How about some balanced reporting on the young people “loudly protesting” against the proposed Raven Coal Mine. Associating their pictures on the front page with the article about a youth homicide trial was not fair to either story. These protesters were not armed and were peacefully trying to draw attention to a web of systems that are all apparently insane. I’d like to see an explanation of how it could possibly cost several thousand dollars to clean up “numerous” protest signs? Why not save the money and leave them up? How much do you think it would cost to clean up: a toxic tailings pile “X” acres large leaching into streams and aquifers feeding Baynes Sound, a burst pipeline in a pristine wilderness, or a leaking oil tanker “Y” times the size of the Exxon Valdez ruining our coast? It is indeed unfortunate that this direct action made some

The right to public ❝ hearing has been made into a sham, scientists have been censored, environmental protection we once achieved is being diluted, fair play and honesty are not upheld. This is the vandalism that needs to be cleaned up.

people feel threatened as they went about their banking business. I’m guessing that the young protesters also feel that their safety and security are being threatened. It does not seem at all like business as usual in our province and nation when the governments continue to put corporate interests above democracy, concern for the rights of their citizens, and environmental sustainability.

The right to public hearing has been made into a sham, scientists have been censored, environmental protection we once achieved is being diluted, fair play and honesty are not upheld. This is the vandalism that needs to be cleaned up. The protesters should be identified alright and they should be praised for being among the first local youth to do something to make a difference. Granted all don’t agree with the methods they chose to achieve this, but it is very astute of people so young to see the connections between banks and environmental threats and to want to unmask them. Putting posters up as far as 26th Street and bannering the bank represents a lot of effort and determination. Calling this mere vandalism and asking for people to rat them out is wrong. Please interview them and report their concerns. Diane Bostock, Area C

COMOX VALLEY RECORD • Wednesday, June 13, 2012 THE SCOTT AND Hooper families were delighted with the care their parents received at the Comox Valley Seniors Village on Headquarters Road. Dorothy and Ralph Scott went through all three levels of care until they passed away this spring at ages 91 and 92. They would have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in September, having been married in 1942. Family members could not have administered the level of care their parents received. Dorothy and Ralph were together with other retirees of their generation and enjoyed an active social life in this modern retirement community. Staffing at all three levels were exceptional and the Comox Valley is lucky to have this facility. To thank the staff, the family donated a painting called The Glacier and the Poppies by family member Brian Scott. Grant, Carol and Brian Scott, general manager Michael Aikins, staff and residents were on hand for the presentation.

More support for bicycle lanes Dear editor, Thank you to Jon Ambler for his comment quoted in the paper regarding his support for a bike lane on Fitzgerald. Here is a chance for council to do something to support cycling for very little cost. I have just returned from England, where

they are doing a lot to support cycling. There are bike lanes all over the place, and while some of these I personally would be scared to cycle on (e.g. in the middle of London!) the overall result is to make people more aware of cyclists, to gradually change the mind set of people so that cycling becomes

more acceptable and accepted. Yesterday on CBC there was someone from Copenhagen talking about how more cyclists on the road eventually makes the roads better for everyone, including the people who do need to drive. It all seems to make sense — but we need

Chickens will thank you Dear editor, Kudos to Birkdale Farm on Guthrie Road in Comox, where their cows are out in the fields; no doubt this takes more effort than leaving them in the barn. When I see them resting and grazing with such obvious contentment, I cannot help but think of the hundreds of millions of livestock animals that are raised in Canadian factory farms. These unfortunate creatures are born or hatched in what amounts to warehouses, live their brief lives in cages, pens or crates, and only see the sun and smell the air in the truck on the way to the slaughterhouse, a journey that can legally take up to 52 hours without unloading for rest, food or water. The Vancouver Humane Society is attempting to convince Tim Hortons to stop buying eggs from chickens kept in battery cages.

THE COMOX VALLEY Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society would like to extend a huge thank you to the residents, businesses and CFB Comox for their ongoing support of our daffodil pin campaign this past spring. Once again, we are overwhelmed by the generous community support. Comox Valley community, you are the best. COMOX TOWN HALL has spent a lot of money on making our main street something to be proud

some action. There has been a bike lane on Noel Avenue for years that has worked well, even with parking on the street. There just has to be enough room so that if someone does open their door the cyclist will not be hit. In the general scheme of things Fitzgerald is not busy (try cycling in the middle of London!) and is a convenient route for getting through town — including to schools, malls, etc. A confident cyclist in a hurry will tend to use Cliffe, which is way busier. Courtenay councillors — you can do this! Buy the paint — and make sure the bike lane is really wellmarked — make people aware of cyclists — this is a good first step. Comox has already taken the lead — look at what they have done on Comox Road and Noel Avenue. Democracy is good but if we have to debate every little issue to death, nothing will get done!
