Quadra Islanders will gather later this month to remember one of their own who was tragically killed in Edmonton. Gabe Gregg, 31, died June 6, after being assaulted outside an Edmonton night club. Derrick Shawn Hansen, 36, of Edmonton has been charged with manslaughter. According to news reports, Gregg was “sucker punched,” fell to the g round and struck his head on the cement. He was found by police on June 3, around 3 a.m., lying near the Gabe Gregg corner of Jasper Avenue and 107th Street. He was taken to hospital by ambulance, but Gre gg was already in a coma. With no sign of brain activity, he was taken off life support. Friends said Gregg was an organ donor and several of his organs were donated to others. Gregg was raised on Quadra Island where his family still resides. He played a variety of sports, but rugby was his passion. He lived in Nanaimo where he ran his own construction business. Just four days before he was assaulted, Gregg had moved to Edmonton. He is fondly remembered in Nanaimo for his upbeat demeanor and great sense of humour. He was a member of the Young Professionals of Nanaimo and helped out with the organizations two community gardens. A memorial service for Gregg takes place on June 23, 4 p.m., at the Quadra Island Community Centre. For more information, visit the Facebook page “Gabe Gregg’s Celebration of Life.”

Teen crime ring faces restorative justice from the interviews with five of the boys (their names cannot be used):
Youths face their victims, make up for their misdeeds, and avoid criminal records PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
At the witching hour, a group of 15- and 16-year-olds silently crawled out of their beds and snuck out of their homes to meet up on the streets. During the months of March and April – and always during the middle of the night – the group of six to seven boys texted messages to each other on cell phones to co-ordinate their efforts to target unlocked vehicles in the Willow Point area. “There were two rashes (of thefts from vehicles) in two months. It was a real spike,” says Campbell River RCMP Staff Sgt. Troy Beauregard. Typically working in groups of two or three, the boys cruised the streets from about 12:30-4 a.m., specifically looking for unlocked vehicles that contained valuables. They stole money, electronics, iPods and sunglasses, but curiously, they stayed away from smart phones because they thought they could be electronically tracked. “They were working in concert with each other…a semi-orga-
nized little crime ring,” notes Beauregard. As the thefts mounted, the Mounties ramped up their efforts to find the culprits. They followed up on tips and actually stopped some of the boys in the early morning hours as they walked the streets. But with little hard evidence, police took the investigation to the next level: They visited their homes and spoke to the parents to let them know what their sons were up to in the wee hours. “Parents sometimes say, ‘It’s not my kid’ – it’s a real eye-opening experience for parents,” says Beauregard. It didn’t take much to break the code of silence and officers soon had a list of seven youths responsible for the rash of thefts. However, instead of hauling them into court, all seven were directed to the Restorative Justice Program. It’s a program primarily designed for young, first-time offenders, and the purpose is to make them acknowledge their crimes, to face their victims, to make restitution, and to receive a second

chance to do good with their lives. “The philosophy of restorative justice is based on community healing. In other words, the community decides what is best for itself in terms of resolving certain criminal matters,” wrote RCMP Insp. Lyle Gelinas in his report to city council. In many ways, going through restorative justice is harder on the young offender than going to court. The reward though is the offender receives
no criminal record and they hopefully go away with a better understanding of how their misdeeds have such a harmful effect on so many people. Recently, a three-anda-half-hour restorative justice forum was held to deal with the seven youths. As part of their “sentence” they were asked to write letters of apology. The Mirror was also invited to interview the youths at the RCMP detachment. Here are excerpts

“I got into trouble and I’m trying to make up for it. Now I’m paying the price and I have to make up for what we’ve stolen. I’m trying to send a message that we learned our lesson,” he says. The tall and toned teen looks like he’s carrying the proverbial chip on his shoulder, but it’s clear he’s uncomfortable being interviewed and steadfastly refuses to even provide his first name, if only for the sake of familiarity. The boy says some of the stolen items were returned, but the money was spent. He promises this is the end of his late-night stealing. “I’m scared to get caught ag ain,” he says.

which, for a while, was a thrill. “We did it for money, to buy smokes, or we’d grab anything we could to trade for drugs,” he says. “Basically, it was an adrenalin rush… one time I got chased and I was so scared, but we got away and I was just so happy, my heart was pounding and I was shaking.” The teen readily admits he still smokes marijuana, but says he’s working to earn his own money. The forum also affected him, hopefully for the good. “It sucked seeing my mom cry. It was just bad, but it did help,” he says and then adds why stealing is wrong. “I could be hurting other people and I could also get hurt. It’s just not right.”
“I did it a couple of times…I affected a lot of people,” he says. He was stopped on the street by police, but didn’t think it was a
problem because they hadn’t committed any thefts. And then the officers came knocking on his door. “It was a big shock when said they had evidence,” he recalls. “My parents were mad.
They weren’t pleased at all. They grounded me for several weeks and gave me a lot of chores.” He still hangs out with a couple of the same guys, but not others, and spends his free time outdoors, bike riding or indoors playing video games.

Last year, 52 restorative justice forums were held in Campbell River. There were 70 in 2010. The forums dealt with people who had committed theft, mischief, fraud, drug possession, possession of weapons, assault, obstructing police, break and enter, uttering threats, and harassment. In addition to facing their victims and writing letters of apology, the perpetrators preformed volunteer community service and re-paid almost $6,000 in restitution to local schools, businesses and one victim.

11:45 a.m. When emergency crews arrived, they found that a blue four-door Pontiac had collided head-on with the pole as the driver attempted to turn right onto Willis Road from northbound lane.
The 35-year-old male driver, along with a woman and a girl all required treatment for non-life threatening injuries. The force of the impact crumpled the front end of the car and resulted in both

The first rider death of 2012 in Kelowna was caused PLANNING TYEE CHEV by driver inattention to cell phone usage. I’ve attached a photo that was just taken this FOR LIFE Saturday. We actually took several - I was driving, my wife was operating the camera. This particular one clearly shows what has the driver’s attention. Traffic was not at a standstill - it was flowing at 60 km/h, and there was plenty of vehicles around on a six-lane highway. The high-res version of this photo plus the one with his license plate (and a clear shot of his phone to his ear) have been handed over to the Kelowna RCMP. There’s not much that I can add to this person’s request to continue to highlight the dangers of taking your attention away from the driving task. He’s clearly had enough of seeing this selfish, uncaring behaviour around himself and his family when he is driving and intends to do something about it. If someone from the Kelowna Detachment takes action it is going to be very difficult for this driver to explain away his actions! I just hope that they don’t end up becoming part of a road rage incident when the offending driver realizes that a photo has been taken.

Public won’t get to see review of mayor Jakeway’s controversial comments KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
Council’s concerns surrounding Mayor Wa l t e r J a ke w ay ’s criticism of city hall won’t be made public despite one councillor’s attempt to bring it all out into the open. Council is expected to discuss and review comments Jakeway made in a keynote address, lambasting city staff, that he delivered at a Rotary lunch May 23 at the Coast Discovery Inn. Coun. Mary Storry
served notice at a May 29 council meeting that she would be asking council, by way of a motion, to “review and discuss the mayor’s role as council spokesperson and whether (the) comments accurately or appropriately reflect the will and view of council.” She stipulated that the discussion be incamera – closed to the public and the local media. Coun. Ron Kerr took exception to the review being behind closed doors and questioned
why it won’t be done in the public domain. “I’ve gone over the list and I didn’t see anything in that motion that would apply to in-camera,” Kerr said at Tuesday’s council meeting. Peter Wipper, city clerk, said the motion falls under employee negotiations, which are not discussed in public. To w h i c h K e r r asked, “who would the employee be?” Laura Ciarniello, the city’s corporate manager, said as each coun-

tinue to target them again.” One crime area that did spike in 2011 was vehicle thefts. While just one vehicle was stolen that January, there were 17 incidents reported in July. Part of the reason for the spike, Gelinas explained, was a group of thieves who stole vehicles in order to commit break and enters. In a 26-your period, from July 14-15, the group stole four vehicles in order to commit three attempted B&Es. The last vehicle they stole wound up dumped in the city hall parking lot. However, police were able to get their men. “At least five members of the group were arrested for possession of stolen property in the weeks following these B&Es,” Gelinas wrote. “These arrests greatly disrupted the group’s ability to operate and contributed to significant reductions in thefts of autos during the months of August (12 incidents) and September (three incidents).”

by RCMP Insp. Lyle Gelinas. “All categories of Criminal Code offences experienced declines,” wrote the city’s top cop in his report to council. “These reductions equate to 421 fewer offences reported to police.” Among the highlights is a dramatic decline in break and enters, particularly business break-ins. Total B&Es were down 24.3 per cent over 2010, while business breakins fell from 75 to 47, a decrease of 37.3 per cent. Police statistics also show a drop in B&Es for the first quarter of 2012. From January to March, police responded to 33 breakins, compared to 52 for the same period in 2010. “The entire detachment is committed to the crime reduction strategy,” wrote Gelinas. “Some of our successes have been putting certain groups in jail. “However, they will return and this will put pressure on our detachment to con-

Troublesome leak is keeping the outdoor pool closed, for now, but the good news is the splash park is on its way KRISTEN DOUGLAS
CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
There is a “slim” chance a water park planned for Willow
Point Park may open this summer even though construction has yet to begin, says the city. The splash park, a
project of the Campbell River Rotary Club, was approved in principle in 2010 and given final approval by city council in November
2011. Fast forward two years later, and the splash park is poised to finally become a reality.
Pool still closed as city searches for leak The Centennial Park outdoor pool remains closed as the city continues to investigate the cause of a serious leak. “Our maintenance contractor and staff have been working to get the pool open again since a leak was first noticed (last) Friday,” said Ross Milnthorp, the city’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture, in a news release. “Unfortunately, the age of the pool contributes to the challenge of finding the leak.” Milnthorp said the city is working to narrow down which areas of the 52-year-old pool are most likely to be the source of the leak and combing through all possibilities, methodically investigating using in-pipe video and pressurization techniques.
PAUL RUDAN/THE MIRROR
Oy vey! Who would have thought that the city’s only public outdoor pool would be closed less than week after opening for the summer? The city will continue to issue people who book the pool for priupdates on the pool’s status via vate rentals, and we encourage its website and Facebook page. swimmers to enjoy water fun at The pool will remain closed the pool at Strathcona Gardens until the source of the leak is as we work to find and repair determined and repaired. the leak,” Milnthorp adds. “We appreciate the patience The pool was constructed by of all our customers – families, the Rotary Club and turned over swim teams, schools and the to the municipality in 1960.
“Construction could begin as early as late Ju n e, ” s a i d Ly n n Wark, city parks project supervisor. “With a construction schedule of eight to 12 weeks, there is a slim chance that the splash park will be operational this season.” If not, Wark said the park will certainly be ready by spring 2013. The splash park will be unique in Campbell River and will reflect the city’s environment, history and culture. “Elements of the park will include a fishing pole with salmon attached, a whale body and tail, and a graphic of a killer whale mouth on the mega soaker,” Wark said. The mega soaker – a bowl full of water that, once full, tips over – will the first of its kind

The park is a joint effort between both local Rotary clubs and the Campbell River Firefighters Association. Telus and the city have also chipped in. The noon hour Rotary Club, which spearheaded the project, is contributing $120,000 while Telus is giving $116,000. Daybreak Rotary is contributing $40,000 while the professional firefighters are donating $20,000. Another $75,000 is coming from the Parks Parcel Tax, which is collected from taxpayers by the city.

No need for omnibus bill The Conservative government is set to pass Bill C-38, an omnibus budget bill which includes amendments and changes to many statutes. This has prompted a massive backlash from a number of groups, notaWe say: The bly environmental groups. One aspect of their protest was the voluntary gvernment blacking out of a number of websites is provoking on June 4. opponents While some of their rhetoric is overblown, it is puzzling why a majority Conservative government feels it needs to proceed in this way. If it wishes to amend specific statutes, why
not do so, without packaging a huge variety of changes in one bill? The Conservatives got used to doing this in their five years as a minority government. It was one way to keep at least one opposition party on side — put something in the budget bill that they wanted, and they would vote for it. It was an understandable tactic. The government had to compromise to the degree that it would propose legislation that one of its opponents would back. In fact, the Conservatives did have to go to the polls in 2008 and 2011 after it became clear that no opposition party was willing to back them any longer. Now there is a majority government. No longer does
the government have to keep one opposition party on side. And that’s fine. The parliamentary system is an adversarial one, with government and opposition on different sides of almost every issue. That’s why such omnibus bills don’t seem to make senese. All they do is hamper the public from paying closer attention to what the government’s plans are, and at the same time, raise fears which in many cases are exaggerated or non-existent. It seems that, with some moves like this omnibus budget bill, the Conservatives are deliberately provoking their opponents. – Black Press
Safety first, service always There has been a lot of speculation about changes to the Coast Guard and how they will affect safety on Vancouver Island. I have represented the Riding of Vancouver Island North since 1993 and lived on Vancouver Island for 40 years. I understand the importance of the Coast Guard. I am supportive of the decisions made by the government and by the Coast Guard on Vancouver Island. The Coast Guard will continue to use the same network of ships and responders on the Island to keep mariners safe in an emergency situation and the ongoing renewal of Coast Guard resources will make Vancouver Island a safer place to be on the water. The Island will continue to be served by the same network of search and rescue lifeboats and the Search and Rescue helicopter and fixed wing capacity at CFB Comox. Search and Rescue lifeboat situations will continue to operate from Campbell River, Port Hardy, Powell River, Tofino, Bamfield,and Saltspring Island. Our government has recently made unprecedented Continued on A9 We welcome your opinions on stories and issues published in our pages as well as issues of broader concern encountered elsewhere.

Goodbye British Columbia’s greenhouse gas goals
Tom Fletcher B.C. Views
In February this column asked the question: “Are B.C.’s greenhouse gas reduction targets history?” The answer is contained in a new draft plan from BC Hydro on how to meet future power demand. And while it’s not explicitly stated, the answer is yes. The draft plan was released in May for discussion purposes, but so far there hasn’t been much discussion. This is surprising given some of the recommendations, such as firing up the Burrard Thermal natural gas power plant more often and buying fossil fuel power from the North American market to keep up to demand. The plan confirms a few things that have been evident for a while. Dreams
of exporting B.C. hydroelectric power are gone for the foreseeable future. And with mining ramping up along with natural gas development and population growth, BC Hydro now projects electricity demand could rise by 50 per cent over the next 20 years. The emergence of huge shale gas sources in B.C. and across the United States has changed the North American energy picture dramatically, as U.S. electricity producers replace coal by burning cheaper and cleaner gas to ramp up power production. B.C. is losing gas market share in the U.S., its only export customer for heating fuel and electricity use. Former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate goals officially remain
in place: 33 per cent greenhouse gas reduction by 2020 and a whopping 80 per cent by 2050. If the gas boom proceeds as planned, B.C. domestic emissions will not be down, but up considerably by 2020. Premier Christy Clark has a new target for 2020: three liquefied natural gas production lines feeding high-pressure tankers at Kitimat, for export to Asia. Not only will B.C. need to buy gas-fired power from outside the province to keep up to industrial and residential demand, but the natural gas industry will need its own new gas-fired electricity to produce LNG for export. Natural gas passed forestry as B.C.’s top resource revenue source many years ago. In 2005, the volatile
gas price spiked up and produced $1 billion in windfall profits that allowed the B.C. government to buy a rare period of public sector labour peace through the 2010 Olympics. Now a glut of shale gas has pushed the North American price down from its historic range of $4 to $6 per thousand cubic feet to about $2.40. Despite that low price, gas 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, vice-president 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 Continued on A9

A new uniform patrols the woods of B.C. these days
MP: Coast Guard Continued from A8 investments in the protection of Canadians at sea. Over the past six years, the government has invested close to $1.4 billion to ensure the Coast Guard fleet is ready to serve Canadians when called upon. As a part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2010, our government invested $175 million in the Canadian Coast Guard to procure 68 new small vessels, 30 environmental barges, and to undertake major repair work on 40 of its largest vessels.
Vancouver Island and the Mainland will continue to be served by the existing 46 radio towers and five major radar sites that monitor shipping patterns, broadcast weather or other alerts and pickup distress calls from the water. Currently, there is a service gap among the five B.C. centres; if one centre goes down because of a power failure or has an unexpected high call volume, it cannot ask for help from a neighbouring centre. Our government is
fixing this problem to provide consistent, uninterrupted service to mariners. We are upgrading the Prince Rupert and Victoria centres with the best available technology, ensuring they are integrated, equipping them with better resources and additional staff where needed, and, ultimately, these changes will improve the Coast Guard’s already excellent service record to Canadians. John Duncan, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern

Since June 1, backcountry users may have noticed a new uniform in the woods. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations compliance and enforcement officers will now be known as Natural Resource Officers and can enforce a broader range of natural resource legislation. Previously, Compliance and Enforcement Officers could only enforce acts that they were specifically designated to uphold. As Natural Resource Officers, they will be able to enforce a broader range of statutes, shorten response time and improve their effectiveness in the field. A single Natural Resource Officer can now respond to violations that are covered by more than one natural resource act, instead of three or four staff that may have been required previously. The new Natural Resource Officer designation is a result of the Natural Resource Compliance Act that was introduced in fall 2011 and came into effect on March 15.

Fletcher: Gas export market could evaporate Continued from A8 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 pro-
ducers 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 evapo-
rates. 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. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@ blackpress.ca

Chamber of Commerce staff, directors and volunteers hit the streets in first Business Thank-A-Thon
Scene & Heard
In collaboration with the Campbell River Chamber’s 80th Anniversary celebrations, the Chamber conducted its first Business Thank-A-Thon on Tuesday. The Thank-A-Thon was conceived to recognize and celebrate local businesses that have chosen Campbell River as their location to conduct their business. Because local businesses support the community by giving back their time and financial support to local sports teams and events, they enhance the quality of life and they contribute to a healthy local economy. It’s for these reasons that the Chamber, community partners and volunteers took to the streets with a message of thanks and support to our local businesses and employers.
The Business Thank-a-thon involved a Business Walk by chamber directors, staff and volunteers to visit local businesses – like Stevie and Jack Turley’s Gourmet Essentials – and say thanks and ask them five quick questions to gain a snapshot of the current business climate.
Rory Evans (left), Darin Striga and other Rotarians manned the barbecue.
Darren Kardal, Colleen Evans (Chamber executive director), Jim Anderson and Kim Jarvis set off on the Business Walk with placards in hand.
Island Life Photographics Marie Louise Mulder and Vic Goodman made a donation to the Rotarians in exchange for a yummy burger.
Youth volunteers Mairin Shields-Brown and Jasmine Biegler contributed their time and talents as part of an effort to involve young people in the event.
“Campbell River’s Most Exciting New Photo Studio” Lee Simmons is an award winning photographer and Campbell River’s choice for creating contemporary family, business and wedding Photography. The Mirror welcomes Lee as one of our “ofﬁcial” Scene & Heard” photographers.

Campbell River Living Mural marks transition Students at Phoenix Middle School have recently completed a commemorative mural to mark the last Grade 9 year at the school. Next Sept the Grade 9s become part of Carihi and Phoenix becomes a Grade 6, 7, and 8 middle school. The project was devised by Art teacher Shannen Harle and local artist Peter Davies (Pete the Pen). This project represents the collaboration between the Phoenix PAC and the Campbell River Arts Council as part of their Youth in the Community Program. In March, eight grade 9 students were selected to design and create the imagery for the mural working under the guidance of Pete the Pen. “I have been

impressed with their creativity and commitment” he said. “The result is spec-
tacular.” “We surveyed all the Grade 9 students for their lasting impres-
