Longtime city eyesore to see a new beginning Plans for Janion building include residential, retail Roszan Holmen News staff

After 35 years of sitting vacant, the Janion building will be restored. On Tuesday, Jon Stovell of Reliance Properties announced the details of his purchase of the decaying historic building at 1612-1614 Store St., as well as waterfront property behind the building, owned by Transport Canada. “This morning we wrote to the city and withdrew the demolition permit application that was submitted by the previous owner,” said Stovell to a burst of applause. He plans to rehabilitate the building to feature ground-floor retail and live-work studios. He also plans to build “well over” 100 so-called microlofts – small, self-contained and relatively affordable units. Stovell said he was eyeing the Janion before he purchased the historic Northern Junk buildings on the other side of the Johnson Street Bridge in 2010. The deal wasn’t economical, however, until he secured the waterfront land from Transport Canada. That parcel is zoned for a similar level of development as the Janion property and Stovell said he does not intend to submit a rezoning application for more density.

Historic structure ■ The Janion building dates to 1891 and was used as a hotel for two years before being converted into the headquarters for the E&N Railway. ■ The building, 15,000 square feet, plus basement, features high ceilings, open staircases and fireplaces in some rooms. ■ An analysis of the building has found that it has three layers of brick and is structurally sound, despite its outward appearance of decay.

The interior staircase of the Janion building appears solid. To make the development viable, he is counting on securing a property tax exemption under the city’s program for heritage restorations. Project architect Paul Merrick called it a special day. “We’ve all, for years, watched this old dear continue to exist and hoped for the best,” he said. “Today we begin on that dream of renewal.” One big question yet to be answered is the future of the David Foster Way. In late May, the city unveiled the new name for the harbourfront walkway at a star-studded ceremony. The walkway currently stretches from Ogden Point to the Johnson Street Bridge, running adjacent to the waterfront along most sections. The city hopes to continue the walkway all the way to Rock Bay. “That’s also an open discussion … whether the waterfront walkway will turn up to the street at that point or even if there is an aspiration to continue on to the north along the water,” Stovell said. rholmen@vicnews.com PLEASE SEE: Exciting times, Our View, Page A6

Oaklands residents abandon church purchase Roszan Holmen News staff

After a rush to raise funds to purchase a church hall, the Oaklands Community Association has abandoned the idea. The association has withdrawn its offer to purchase the former St. Albans, home to the Lansdowne Co-opera-

tive Preschool. The church and hall were recently sold by the Anglican Diocese of B.C. to a private developer. Upon learning of the community’s interest, the new owner agreed to sell the building for $1.1 million. Initially, the community was hopeful and started raising money. After doing more detailed research,

however, the board of directors decided against the purchase. “This decision was based on the changing circumstances, such as the church being rendered non-rentable, even for the temporary time; the $132,000 HST costs of purchasing from the developer, the $200,000 costs to repair the hall, and

the additional thousands of dollars to fix the church,” association president Ben Clark wrote in a letter to members. The preschool is on the move to a new space at Carnavon Park on time to open in September. “We are forlornly sad to be leaving the St Albans property, our home for the

past 50 years,” wrote president Cait Irwin, in an email to the News. “We are doubly sad that St Albans is slated for demolition.” Irwin said the preschool has a long-term plan to return to Oaklands and aims to set up a community investment fund in the coming months. rholmen@vicnews.com

Social media leads police to purse-snatch suspect

Land lubbers capture the spirit of Buccaneer Days

The image of a suspect posted on Facebook allowed police to make an arrest Sunday in connection with a violent purse-snatching in downtown Victoria. A caller saw the image and contacted Victoria police, who arrested an 18-year-old Saanich man at his home, said department spokesperson Const. Mike Russell. Russell used social media channels to ask for the public’s help on Saturday, not long after an 80-year-old woman’s purse was grabbed as she walked near Fort and Langley streets around 5 p.m. She was thrown to the ground in the process and suffered minor injuries. Several nearby people chased the suspect to The Bay Centre, where he escaped, but not before security cameras caught him on tape. Police are recommending a robbery charge against the man, who was due in court Monday, after the News’ deadline. emccracken@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Exciting times for downtown Monday’s announcement that the muchmaligned Janion building has been purchased for redevelopment is a good sign for the prospects of downtown Victoria. Reliance Properties’ updating of the 1891 building – a run-down eyesore for decades Janion project will go a long way latest addition to –toward revitalizing a waterfront plans part of town which, for years, has been a study in contrasts, with the presence of social services agencies and the high-traffic tourist draws of Chinatown and Lower Johnson. In combination with Reliance’s proposed development of the Northern Junk buildings land across Johnson Street, Anthem Properties’ Union residential/retail project slated for the lot behind Swan’s Hotel and Brew Pub, and the construction of the new bridge, the Janion project has the potential to help bring hundreds of new residents and shoppers to downtown’s northern waterfront. The tricky part of creating any new housing project in Victoria is balancing the socioeconomic mix. Victoria council, especially Mayor Dean Fortin, is fully on board with adding to the supply of affordable housing in the city – whether that’s ‘get-people-off-thestreet’ rental units or modestly priced spaces for first-time home buyers. While the plans for the Janion and an adjacent waterfront property are still just an idea, Reliance may yet win points with the politicians by proposing units priced to appeal to individuals or couples with modest incomes. Regardless of how the Janion project emerges, this area has the potential to be transformed, from a sometimes scary zone to a vibrant addition to the downtown business and residential district. In five or six years, the waterfront skyline of the city in the area will be drastically changed. While the alterations won’t be on the scale of say, Vancouver’s False Creek or Seattle’s warehouse district, we think the combined changes will give Victoria more reasons to live, work and shop downtown. It’s all a sign that our little city is growing up. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@vicnews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

producers in B.C. are going flat out to develop the Horn River and Montney shale gas deposits in northeast B.C. I asked David Pryce, vicepresident of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, why so much gas is being developed now. He said producers have made huge investments in B.C. shale gas drilling rights, and are in an international race to supply LNG to Asian countries where the price is currently four times higher than in North America. Whatever the domestic price, B.C. gas producers have to show LNG investors such as Mitsubishi and Korea Gas that they can fill a steady procession of LNG tankers at a competitive rate. If LNG doesn’t fly here, B.C.’s gas export market soon evaporates. Currently gas producers pay about $400 million a year in royalties, and that much again to buy up shale gas drilling rights. The industry already employs about 12,000 workers in B.C. The B.C. government has little choice but to redefine its climate targets. Instead of cutting domestic emissions, it will try to take credit for displacing coal power in Asia. Fortunately, B.C.’s main coal exports are for high-grade coal used in steel-making.

LETTERS Re: Desperation heard in Krueger’s tactics (Our View, June 6) I couldn’t agree with your editorial more. Just this morning I heard the news of another poll showing that Premier Christy Clark’s approval rating has gone down again, to 30 per cent, while the rating for Adrian Dix has gone up to 53 per cent. If Clark was smart she’d see that MLA Kevin Krueger’s rude, badgering, bullying manner and his out-of-control blabbing to the press reflects negatively on her and her party. If she is such a “great communicator,” she should know that Krueger’s out-ofline heckling prevents real communication in the house and turns everybody off. He looked totally unprofessional on TV, ranting against the opposition. Clark commented that “he’s not always politically correct” and laughed it off. I think people expect her to condemn his behaviour. I agree that people will find it hard to take her anti-bullying initiative seriously while she is fostering Krueger’s actions.

Blue bridge campaign could have used help The promotional feature “Celebrate our Harbour” (News, June 8), presented by the Victoria Harbour Celebration Society, included a picture of the Johnson Street Bridge. The piece stated the society wished “to encourage Victoria residents and visitors to experience the unique

character, history, industry and beauty of our harbour.” How ironic, those words, since that fine structure has been slated for destruction by the City of Victoria – a measure that was pushed so vigourously by Mayor Dean Fortin – with only Coun. Geoff Young voting against the decision. Where was that society’s voice during the low-budget campaign to save it, that saw hours of work put in by a group of citizens? Celebrate our harbour and our history, indeed – without Old Blue? Sorry. Redner Jones Victoria

Re: Reduction in park traffic sought (News, May 30) In 2008, 60 parents from our preschool signed a petition asking the City of Victoria parks staff to make surfaces in Beacon Hill Park available for young children to ride with their bicycles. City bylaws state that bicycles must share the road with vehicles and not ride on sidewalks, paths or natural areas (for obvious reasons). After the age of seven, there are very few children using park playgrounds because they need surfaces for the activities they enjoy most. These days we have lost the opportunity to provide young children roadways without vehicles. How does driving a vehicle become an appropriate recreational activity within a park anyway? Moreover, every road in Victoria is scenic. Commuters and bus companies choose to complain directly to city councillors so they can continue to drive through and park freely, even though there are plenty of streets immediately around Beacon Hill Park. Even the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition pushed for a commuter route through the park. I suggest that the complainers attend community meetings and hear more than their own voice. You may be delighted with the result of children cycling safely with their families in the park, a park that was enjoyed before the invention of automobiles. Hopefully it’s not too late to consider our young citizens. Cornelia Lange Victoria

left lane, passing cars on my right, when someone aggressively comes up behind me, flashing their lights. They seem to think that I should move over and wait behind slower traffic, so they can drive as fast as they want in the left lane. Not likely. We have speed limits for a reason. According to the police and ICBC, speeding is a major cause of accidents, injury and death. The faster we drive, the greater the risk. This is an irrefutable fact, proven in countless studies around the world. It is not in dispute among traffic experts. Those who think that driving fast is safe are simply deluding themselves, and trying to twist the argument to support their views. Worse, speeders place the rest of us at risk with their illegal, selfish, irresponsible behaviour. Moving to the right on a highway is a courtesy, not a legal requirement. And courtesy is given, never taken. It’s up to the driver. And drivers doing the speed limit in the left lane are under absolutely no obligation to move over, so someone can break the law and endanger lives by speeding. Richard Brunt Victoria

Vision Matters Dr. Stephen Taylor

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Tanning beds and your eyes As a means to achieve the perfect bronzed glow, tanning beds have become the latest craze over the last few years. What people may not factor in is the tanning devices, just like the sun, emit harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Besides the risk of skin cancer, these rays, after prolonged exposure, can damage your cornea and may cause cataracts or macular degeneration. For optimal tanning bed eye safety, make sure you wear protective goggles that cover and fit snugly over your eyes. If you use the salon’s goggles, be sure they have been sterilized to prevent infection. Also, be sure to remove contact lenses before tanning. Remember closing your eyes, wearing sunglasses, or using cotton pads to cover your eyelids will not prevent harmful UV rays from filtering through and causing damage to your eyes. A great tan is not worth the risk of ruining your eyesight.

Police don’t know if three cases connected Erin McCracken News staff

Victoria police have stepped up patrols around Oaklands elementary school during school hours after a student said he was offered money to go with a man last week. It’s the third report of an alleged luring at the school in a month. The 10-year-old was allegedly approached June 5 after school near the school grounds, on Belmont Avenue in Victoria. The student refused to go with the man and went to tell a friend. The children reported the incident to adults that night. Police don’t yet know if the incident is connected to two previous reports of attempted lurings near the school grounds. “We’re looking at that right now. We’re not seeing a lot of consistency in the three different (cases),” said VicPD Det.-Sgt. Todd Wellman, adding that police have few leads at this early stage of the investigation. Police are alerting the public and residents in the neighbourhood because the latest incident “was a little more overt than the first two,” Wellman said. Police were initially called to Oaklands on May 15 and 17 after two female students, similar in age to the 10-year-old boy, said they were each motioned by a man to come closer. The incidents allegedly happened near the school grounds around 8:30

a.m. Descriptions of the men and vehicles vary. One girl reported seeing a black convertible on May 15. The second girl said she saw a van during the May 17 incident. School officials have not increased the number of supervisors in the school yard when the children are playing during lunch and recess. “My belief is that we’ve always had comprehensive coverage, and we continue with that coverage,” said school principal Mike Phelan. “So I think we’ve done well in determining whether people don’t belong in our area or not.” School officials and detectives continue to advise parents to teach their children street safety, including walking to and from school in groups. Parents are also urged to remind their kids to immediately tell school officials if they are approached by an adult. The suspect from last week’s incident is described as a white male in his late 30s or early 40s, with short black hair. He was clean shaven, and wore a black shirt, blue jeans and sunglasses. Detectives are encouraging anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity near Oaklands school on June 5 to call the Victoria police non-emergency line at 250-995-7654, or make an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. emccracken@vicnews.com

City eyes cap on tax breaks Council ponders whether exemptions fair to non-profits Roszan Holmen News staff

Not-for-profit organizations that own their buildings are receiving financial benefits not available to non-profits that rent space in the City of Victoria. Coun. Geoff Young brought up the discrepancy during a lengthy debate about the city’s permissive property tax exemptions Thursday. “We have the situation of very similar organizations, some of which have the ability to buy a building and which we’re giving a full exemption, and those that can’t (buy) the building are paying their full cost.” In 2011, the city granted full property tax breaks to 105 nonprofit organizations such as social-service agencies, arts organizations and churches. The exemptions totalled $1.7 million. Meanwhile dozens of other non-profits paid property taxes indirectly, through rent paid to their landlord. The Women’s Sexual Assault Centre is one of them. “All non-profits struggle with their overheads and I think we all would like to see some relief in terms of tax exemptions,”said centre executive director Makenna Rielly. “We certainly have not ever been in a position to purchase property.” Rent is very high in the Central Building at 620 View St., making it difficult to keep administrative costs down, she said. The centre pays $7,500 monthly for their 3,000-square-foot space. This issue of equity is just one

Applications from non-profits are evaluated on a basis of organizations’ accessibility, financial need and accountability. However, tax-break applicants are not scrutinized to the same degree as grant applicants. In 2004, the city opted to reduce the tax exemptions for new applicants in the educational sectors, and for organizations that primarily serve people living outside the city. However, organizations already receiving full exemptions were grandfathered. “It was a strong policy, (but was) somewhat weakly implemented,” said consultant Peter Adams, commissioned to examine the city’s policies. Coun. Marianne Alto put forward a motion to limit the tax exemptions in several ways.

She recommended capping exemptions at approximately the current value, and phasing out grandfathered organizations over a “reasonable amount of time.” “It’s a matter of fairness,” she said. Alto also recommended excluding parking lots from tax exemptions. Mayor Dean Fortin, however, said it needs more thought. “What’s the intended impact and what’s the unintended impact?” he asked. “Is our goal to say to a church, ‘you now have to charge for parking.’ Or are we saying ‘Get rid of your parking’?” Coun. Pam Madoff also favoured postponing a decision and called for better engagement with stakeholders. “With those who are most affected, we have to be really careful about the message we send,” she said. Council tabled the discussion and requested more information from staff. rholmen@vicnews.com

Progress demands leadership more than it requires money, said Victoria city Coun. Marianne Alto. As one example, she pointed to a program that distributes bus passes to people in poverty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Social Planning Council came to the transit commission and made a very compelling presentation â&#x20AC;Ś about why this program needed to be expanded,â&#x20AC;? Alto said. The commission agreed and increased the number of passes by 25 per cent. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governance and priorities committee unanimously endorsed the plan last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the city canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act in and of itself to reduce poverty, one of the key things the city can do is to create an enabling environment,â&#x20AC;? said Lisa Helps, who attended the campaign launch as a city councillor and executive director of Community Micro Lending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city has a real role to play.â&#x20AC;? Business leaders will also be asked to partner in the plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to work with employers in the region to certify them as living-wage employers if they step up to the plate,â&#x20AC;? Downing said. The wage required to maintain an adequate quality of life in the Capital Region has been calculated to be $18.07 per hour. Another plan in the works is to launch a community investment fund early in 2013, Downing added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will be a vehicle for people to put their savings and their investments in a community-managed fund to help build social housing and finance (other socially-responsible programs).â&#x20AC;?

Transit TV offers a different view New initiative about making ‘connections’

Sleek yet bold, sizeable yet compact. Introducing the all-new 200 hp Tiguan.

Erin McCracken News staff

B.C. Transit television is just a mouse click away. The bus company has rolled out its new broadcast series, known as Transit TV, on its website. New initiatives, employee profiles and other transit news will be the focus of stories filmed, edited and told by Victoria-based B.C. Transit spokesperson, Meribeth Burton, who worked for almost 24 years as a television journalist. “For me it’s about complete openness and great communication,” said Burton, who took on the agency’s spokesperson role earlier this year. “I think Transit TV is just one small component.” Though the concept was not developed in response to an independent review of B.C. Transit that the province ordered, after several mayors complained about issues such as faulty communications, Burton said Transit TV will bolster communications. She is using an iPad to tape interviews with B.C. Transit

Transit spokesperson Meribeth Burton shows her primary filming method – her iPad – of capturing short clips for the new Transit TV segment available on the company’s website. employees and editing them into short segments. Burton will also appear on camera. “Once I feel like I’ve got his or her voice, and I’m reflecting it, I try to add a little Meribeth to it,” she said. She felt it only natural to bring her broadcast skills to her new communications career. “I do people-style communications, because I like people. I’m a storyteller and my colleagues think it’s wonderful, because I think everything they tell me is a story. “I probably hear three great

story ideas a day.” In addition to viewing online videos and podcasts, visitors to the site can also click links that take them to mainstream media stories featuring B.C.

Yacht club hosting a public open house The Royal Victoria Yacht Club is opening its doors to the public for the first time this Saturday (June 16). “We don’t think the club has done enough to show how it can make boating in Oak Bay’s fabulous waters accessible to local residents, particularly younger people,” said Jeremy Smith, the club’s commodore. The club is taking steps to attract newcomers. To do so, it is promoting boating activities that will appeal to all ages and has reduced its fees for younger members. The club has a fleet of sailboats available for members’ use, from sporty dinghies to stable 24-foot keelboats. Summer youth and adult sailing lessons are also available to non-members who want to give it a try. The open house includes tours and onthe-water demonstrations, as well as hot dogs and activities for kids and a draw for prizes. It runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., The Royal Victoria Yacht Club is located at 3475 Ripon Rd., just off Beach Drive. For more information, contact the club administrator at 250-592-2441. editor@oakbaynews.com

Fairway Market gives back to families in need Thanks to the support of customers, suppliers and staff, Fairway Market presented a cheque last Friday to the David Foster Foundation for $86,817. The cheque represents the culmination of the local grocery’s successful three-week fundraising campaign for the foundation, which provides financial support to Canadian families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants. “It all goes to a great cause,” said Fairway Market vice-president Robert Jay. “Fairway is always involved in the

community and wants to give back. Families are a good fit for us as we see generations coming to our stores.” Mel Cooper, David Foster Foundation’s honourary director and special advisor, said the fact Fairway is nearing its 50th anniversary in Victoria is timely. “It shows the importance of local support. This is where we began as the David Foster Foundation 25 years ago (and) now, as a national foundation, our need for support is greater than ever before.”

Artists supporting artists at Coast Collective Coast Collective is bursting at the seams with inspiration Kyle Wells News staff

Working out of one small office in a heritage house, the five women of Coast Collective help organize and support the work of nearly 300 artists. Everything from paintings to pottery to CDs to handmade toys and pretty much anything else you can imagine, can be found in every nook and cranny of the collectiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home and gift shop at Pendray House in Colwood. Old closets have been converted into shelving for displays, the collection is spread throughout multiple rooms and you can hardly see the walls from all that hang on them. But it works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all just fit so well,â&#x20AC;? said Terri Rodstrom, director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a great destination and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so proud of everybody and how it all works together.â&#x20AC;?

Kyle Wells/News staff

Terri Rodstrom is one of five women who run Colwood's Coast Collective which houses a gallery, gift shop, classes, artists' studios and has become something of a community for artists. Four years ago Rodstrom and three other artists started the collective out of a desire to create a place for artists that was truly for

artists. It was to be a place where artists could display and sell their works, network with other artists, learn from one another and feel as

though they were part of a community. A fifth organizer got involved, the community grew and the collective ended up with 10,000 visitors in its first two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d all been a part of guilds and organizations and they move so slowly when somebody gets an idea,â&#x20AC;? Rodstrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, it was, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to do something but have things move faster, make decisions quickly, not go through months and months of debate and things like that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And really, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it got to be as big as it is so quickly.â&#x20AC;? The location, the scenery, the art and the spirit of the place all come together to form something of a mecca for artists, that encourages, teaches, showcases and inspires everyone, including the visitors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A visitor that comes to an arts centre obviously has something in them that they want to create,â&#x20AC;? Rostrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So when they come here â&#x20AC;Ś they go away thinking theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get creative or take a class or do something. So I think we spur people on all the time.â&#x20AC;?

Nine artists have studios on site, including potter Belle Leon and photovoltaic glass artist Sandra Fowler. Classes and workshops are also held in the space. In the gallery, which was the original enormous dining room in the house, the collective hosts its more official shows. Shows rotate every two or three weeks and are sometimes juried selections, sometimes by invitation only and at other times, the space is rented by a particular artist to display their works. At present, the gallery is booked for shows until the end of 2013. Until June 17, the gallery is home to Variations, an invitation-only collection of artists with a wide variety of styles and mediums, including painter Mark Heine and found-object metal artist Karen Lancey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re artists. We like representing artists. We like hanging work,â&#x20AC;? Rodstrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun. Who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do it?â&#x20AC;? The Coast Collective Art Gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday, noon to 5 p.m at 3221 Heatherbell Rd., Colwood. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Art at Abkhazi Tea and scones, too

University of Victoria in the early 1980s. It wasn't until she took early retirement in 1999 that she returned to painting. Although she's been part of several local shows, the one in the Abkhazi Garden tearoom is her first solo show. The exhibit runs until July 1 in the Garden tearoom, 1964 Fairfield Rd., which is open for lunch, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and for afternoon tea from 2 to 3:30. Admission to the garden is $10.

The romantic story that is the basis of the Abkhazi Garden as well as the garden itself is what inspired Betsy Tumasonis to complete six acrylic works of the garden in bloom. Tumasonis majored in visual art at the College of William and Mary in Virginia but put it aside when she became an art and history professor at the

The Starlight Pops Choir presents Country Goes POP! St. Aidan’s United Church this Friday and Sunday, June 15 and 17.

Pops turn on the twang Dolores Bell Contributor

Singing is good for the brain, say the members of Starlight Pops Choir. Choristers are required to memorize at least a dozen songs for each of their twice-yearly concert series, so a minimum of two dozen new songs is added to their repertoire each year. The singers may – and often do – moan and groan about all the work involved, but they realized that the benefits outweigh the workload. “Certainly, because you have to memorize not only the words and the tune, but also the timing and the dynamics,” said soprano Claudia Logan. “The only potential problem is that you might lose some sleep with all those songs buzzing around in your head all night.” Choir members find that sing-

ing, especially when the songs are memorized, strengthens concentration. The choir’s repertoire is sung in four-part harmony, and the memorization is much more difficult when the singer doesn’t have the melody line. Additionally, there are all the other components that go into preparing for a performance. “I find singing spiritually uplifting, something that can change a sullen mood to happiness,” said soprano Gillian Lawton. “On a dreary Tuesday evening when I really don’t want to leave home, I drag myself to choir and in no time, I feel the joy.” Committing all the songs to memory frees the singers to interact more fully with their songs and with their audiences. “Even if you’re not the world’s biggest country music fan, there’s lots to enjoy with this concert,” said Sue Doman,

founder and director of Starlight Pops Choir. “We’ve got classic hits by Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams and Elvis Presley, as well as great tunes by newer artists like Shania Twain, Travis Tritt, Carrie Underwood … and The Soggy Bottom Boys.” Starlight Pops Choir is supported by a four-piece combo, and the concert includes special performances by small ensembles and soloists including a solo by Doman herself, an accomplished vocalist. Starlight Pops Choir presents Country Goes POP! Friday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 17 at 2:30 p.m. at St. Aidan’s United Church, 3703 St. Aidan’s St. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for seniors and students, and are available at the door (cash only).

Point sings for Salvation The Victoria Good News Choir, directed by Louise Rose presents O, Canada, É? an all Canadian repertoire concert at 2:30 and 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 16 at Friendship Community Church in Central Saanich. The performance includes special guests, the students of ‘Ecole Willows elementary school’s Division 3 and Central Lt.-Gov. Middle school, Point directed by Marianne Ing along with the Commodores Big Band. There will be a few surprises in this concert as well as familiar work including Ian Tyson’s Four Strong Winds and Connie Kaldor’s Wood River. The Victoria Good News Choir will be performing God Grant Me A Sign, written by Lieutenant Governor Steven Point and arranged by Louise Rose. They will also perform British

Columbia, also written by Point. In collaboration with local musicians, Point released a CD, A Dedication to the People of British Columbia. Point has given the CD to the Salvation Army with proceeds to go to the establishment of a recovery house for young women. When Point was touring the Salvation Army Beacon of Hope Steven House in Victoria, an addiction recovery centre for young men, he spoke about a similar facility for young women recovering from addiction. The Salvation Army took his suggestion to heart and securing funds for the Beacon of Light House is underway. When Point heard the Salvation Army was going forward with the project, he felt it was important to contribute in some way. He had written two songs and

decided to make them available through the Salvation Army as a way to raise awareness about the recovery centre. A Dedication to the People of British Columbia features two songs, both with music and lyrics by the Lieutenant Governor. The first track, British Columbia features musical arrangements by the Naden Band of Maritime Forces Pacific. The Victoria Good News Choir provides the vocals and the Unity Drummers and singers provide the drumming. God Grant Me A Sign features vocals by the Lt-Gov. and the Victoria Good News Choir. The four part choral arrangement of this song was written by Louise Rose. Copies of the CD will be available by donation at the O, Canada, É? concerts. Call 250-6581946 to reserve tickets, $15 for adults and $5 for children under 12. They are available at Ivy’s Book Shop, Long & McQuade, Larsen Music and at the door. llavin@vicnews.com

Ty Jones carried a young Saanich Braves team to within one goal of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League final. For his efforts he was awarded the Jamie Benn Trophy as the league’s most valuable player. The delayed awards were finally released on June 7. The MVP was one of two trophies for Jones. The 19-year-old Braves captain also tied Victoria Cougars forward Steven Axford with 75 points for the Doug Morton Trophy as the league’s top scorer. “I was assuming (Jones) would be considered,” Braves coach Brad Cook said.

Christian Stewart Photography

Braves captain Ty Jones. “Jones was so consistent in his production and work ethic and I played him in all situations.” It’s hard to argue with the effect Jones had on the Braves’ youth and inexperience, and how important he was down the stretch, the coach said. “It’s rare you see a player win games single-handedly, but Jones did that,” Cook added. “It’s not always the ideal way to

win, but that said, he was that good.” Even more exciting than Jones winning MVP is his return for the 2012-13 season as a 20-year-old, leaving an NCAA Div. 3 offer on the table. The Braves will likely lose Sam McMullen and Sean McBride to junior A, and Jack Palmer to the Western League’s Brandon Wheat Kings. Palmer won the Larry Lamoureaux rookie of the year award. The Cyclone Taylor Cup finalist Cougars earned a lions’ share of the awards for its exceptional season with just six losses in 42 games. Evan Roch won goaltender of the year award, captain Brody Coulter won the top forward award, and Mark Van Helvoirt won coach of the year for his role in leading the Cougars to a franchise-best 36 wins. sports@vicnews.com

Visiting rugby squad Burnaby Lighthouse won the third annual Buccaneer 7s tournament at Bullen Park in Esquimalt on Saturday. Burnaby Lighthouse, featuring players from the Burnaby Lake rugby club, defeated the South Seas in the final. The latter team is a mix of Velox Valhallians and Castaway Wanderers players. The tournament is the second of three B.C. Rugby Sevens series stops in Victoria. The next tour stop is the Vancouver Rugby 7s on Saturday (June 16), while the next tourney here is the Victoria International 7s, July 13 and 14 at UVic’s Centennial Stadium. The Victoria and Serevi Vancouver International 7s tourneys are hallmark events of the series, and

will feature two of the greatest rugby sevens players: Waisale Serevi of Fiji, and the International Rugby Board’s all-time leading sevens scorer, Ben Gollings, of England. The Esquimalt-based Buccaneer 7s festival is one of many achievements outgoing James Bay Athletic Association president Tom Woods made during his 10-year term. The former national player also helped bring the French Barbarians to Bullen Park against Canada in 2008.

Jr. Rocks disappointed in discipline ‘We can’t take so many penalties’ Travis Paterson News staff

The level of concern on coach Larry Smeltzer’s face said it all on Sunday afternoon. Smeltzer was one breath short of fuming after his Victoria junior Shamrocks let go of an opportunity to get back in the win column against the Port Coquitlam Saints on Sunday night, losing 11-8. The Shamrocks lost to the Delta Islanders 16-7 on Saturday, and Smeltzer summed it up to the same problem. “Too many penalties,” Smeltzer said. “There’ll be some changes coming up.

Oak Bay surfer second at the Stew Oak Bay’s surfer-on-the-rise, Hanna Scott, placed second in the short board category of the Tofino Rip Curl Pro, June 9 and 10. The event “evolved” to pro status this year from its former name, the Rip Curl Stew, which comes from the mix of swell stirred up in the waters of Cox Bay, where the competition is held. Scott took home $500 for second, with the winner Leia Oak pocketing $1,500. These days Scott lives full time in Tofino and works as an instructor. The 21-year-old

You can’t put a price on success, but you can sell a piece of it. On Monday afternoon Ryder Hesjedal’s pink jersey from his Giro d’Italia win, known as the maglia rosa, stood at $4,450 on the Internet auction site Ebay. It was the 39th bid. It’s the very first maglia rosa

Hesjedal pulled on at the Giro, after Stage 7. All proceeds will go to support up-and-coming cyclists in Canada and to promote the sport through the Ryders Cycling Society of Canada. “It’s only slightly worn – although it is for a buyer who doesn’t mind champagne stains,” said Cody Graham, director of the Ryders society and friend of Hesjedal’s. Bidding closes on June 20, exactly 10 days prior to the start of the Tour de France. Hesjedal will attempt to be the first cyclist since 1998 to win both the Giro and Tour in the same year. “As I now begin to prepare for the Tour de France, I want to fuel that passion and interest in cycling – whether it’s recreationally or at the highest level of competition,” Hesjedal said. sports@vicnews.com
