SD 61 remains stalled on Wi-Fi Teachers’ job action slows debate on wireless safety Natalie North News staff

No elementary schools within the Greater Victoria School District had wireless Internet installed over the last year, and none will, until school trustees give Wi-Fi the green light. The school board's decision on whether or not to lift a year-old moratorium on installing wireless

Internet in schools hinges on the findings from the district’s committee on Wi-Fi, a group comprised of teachers and administrators, as well as members from the Allied Specialists Association and the Principals’ Association. The committee met with concerned parents and sought input from such authorities as the World Health Organization, the Vancouver Island Health Authority and Industry Canada four times since formation in early 2011. “There were groups of people who brought forward information that you’ve probably seen before … it came from all walks of life,”

said Patrick Duncan, Greater Victoria School District associate superintendent and chair of the committee. “I haven’t heard of any further outcry from parents. There is one group who has continued to bring forward presentations and I’m sure they will continue to ensure that their voice is heard.” The committee was slated to present recommendations on Wi-Fi to the board on June 20. The retirement of previous committee chair, former district secretary-treasurer George Ambeault and the teacher job action – which has teachers currently abstaining from all voluntary extracurricular activities,

including participation on the committee – has put the report on hold indefinitely. The board will be writing a letter inviting the Greater Victoria Teachers’ Association to participate to get the committee moving forward again, board of education chair Peg Orcherton confirmed. Until then, the only elementary school in SD 61 with wireless Internet remains George Jay. Every high school and middle school within the district already had Wi-Fi before the moratorium was implemented. PLEASE SEE: More input on Wi-Fi, Page A4

Thieves are breaking into empty for-sale and for-rent homes in Saanich to steal copper water supply tubing and electrical wires. Three incidents have been reported to Saanich police since June 5 where homes have been entered and the copper tubes that lead from the hot water tank have been stolen. In all three cases, the thefts have resulted in flood damage to the homes. Incidents occurred in three different parts of Saanich: the 3600-block of Ophir St. in the Shelbourne valley, the 1800-block of Taylor Rd. in the Saanich panhandle south of Hillside Shopping Centre, and the 3900-block of Telegraph Bay Rd. in Cadboro Bay. “We suspect the same person or persons is responsible, given the MO is distinct,” said Sgt. Dean Jantzen. Items that are being stolen do not amount to much in terms of value, as they are short pieces of low-quality copper. Jantzen advised landlords and property owners to perform regular checks on vacant properties to ensure they haven’t been targeted. People should double-check security, such as locks and motion detector lights. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Saanich senior fined for fatal airport crash

COMMUNITY NEWS

Family of taxi driver remains devastated

Blaze damages dog grooming shop Firefighters forced their way into a dog grooming business in the 3500-block of Quadra St. late Monday morning (June 11) after a nearby business owner spotted smoke billowing from the two-storey building. The blaze was contained to the bathroom area of the business, which was closed when the fire was reported just before 11 a.m. The rest of the building was heavily damaged by smoke. Though extinguished quickly, the fire left the business with an estimated $75,000 in damage. Two neighbouring businesses also sustained minor smoke damage. No one was injured in the fire and the cause remains under investigation.

Edward Hill News staff

It was a moment of confusion and panic for an elderly Saanich woman driving at the Victoria airport last year that left a man dead and six others seriously injured. On Tuesday, Shirley Zerbin, 82, received her sentence of a $1,500 fine and a three-year driving ban. As Victoria provincial court judge Evan Blake noted, this is a case that started out of “innocent and mundane circumstances” and ended in profound tragedy for all. On July 29, 2011, Zerbin drove her 1990 Pontiac Sunbird to the airport in the late morning to pick up a friend. She arrived flustered after becoming confused and lost due to the new McTavish interchange – for years she hadn’t driven farther than a grocery store near her Cedar Hill X Road home. Airport security video played in court demonstrated that Zerbin paid her dollar, pulled into the airport’s short term parking lot and slowly drove past a row of cars. She pulled an arcing left turn and then shot diagonally across the blacktop, accelerating over the curb, plowing through a concrete picnic table filled with taxi drivers playing cards, through luggage carts and into a cement barrier in front of the security building. Crown prosecutor Kimberly Henders Miller said investigators estimate Zerbin’s car hit the table of men at 78 kilometres per hour, and accelerated continuously throughout the incident. Father of three, 57-year-old Ramesh Sharma died and six other taxi drivers suffered significant injuries. Five of those men remain off work. Zerbin herself was seriously injured and spent four months recovering in hospital. Henders Miller pointed out Zerbin remains grief stricken over her actions and co-operated fully with the Sidney/North Saanich RCMP. Investigators reported the Sunbird was in good working order and that Zerbin simply mistook the gas for the brake.

IN BRIEF

File photo

The cement picnic table at the Victoria airport was rubble after a car smashed through it last July, killing one man. The elderly driver wasn’t criminally charged, but faces nine civil lawsuits. “The only explanation she can offer is that she must have put her foot on the gas, that the car leapt forward and she didn’t know what to do. She couldn’t find the brake but didn’t know why,” said defense lawyer Dan Murphy. “She was deeply troubled by in the aftermath and remains deeply troubled by Mr. Sharma’s death.”

“I think she knows she made a mistake and is sincere. I don’t feel hatred toward her. It’s unfortunate she took a life.” –Savjeev Sharma, son of Ramesh Sharma Crown and police agreed Zerbin wasn’t criminally liable and she was charged with driving without due care and attention under the Motor Vehicle Act. Besides a speeding ticket in 1991, this crash is the only blemish on her driving record of 65 years. “I’d like to say I’m very, very sorry for hurting the taxi men and for Mr. Sharma and his family. I am very sorry,” Zerbin told the court, standing next to her son, Ted. Her lawyer told the court

she would never seek a drivers licence again. Zerbin moved to Victoria in 1944, served in the air force for three years and worked at the Yarrow Shipyards until retiring on a modest pension, and has no assets beyond the car that was destroyed. She and the Victoria Airport Authority face nine civil lawsuits launched by taxi drivers impacted by the crash. Sharma’s son Sanjeev, 23, and daughter Sabina, 18, sat through the proceedings, quietly wiping away tears as the Crown and defence lawyers described the series of events that led to their father’s death. “I think she knows she made a mistake and is sincere. I don’t feel hatred toward her. It’s unfortunate she took a life,” Sanjeev said after court finished. Ramesh Sharma immigrated to Canada from New Delhi, India, around 1985. Sanjeev described his father as a man who worked hard every day of his life to allow his children to have good lives and a good education. As timing would have it, later on the same day as the sentencing hearing, Sanjeev attended convocation at the University of Victoria to receive a B.Sc. in economics. Sabina graduates in a week from

Claremont secondary. “His whole life he worked for our family,” Sanjeev said. “Since he moved here he worked to save money to make sure we had good lives.” Since his father’s death, their mother has been unable to work and Sanjeev has split his time between school and running his father’s taxicab, which is the only source of income for the Sharma family. The family is also part of the civil lawsuit against Zerbin. Judge Blake said the $1,500 fine and driving prohibition reflect penalties set out under the Motor Vehicle Act, and doesn’t put a price tag on the value of human life. Courts are “ill equipped” to deal with these scenarios, he said. “Horrific consequences loom over the proceedings, but the court has to bear in mind the defendant is not being prosecuted with a criminal charge,” Blake said. Zerbin is sincerely remorseful and had led an exemplary life, the judge said, but her fateful 19 seconds of panicked driving led to “physical and psychological (consequences) for all involved and devastation for the Sharma family that is almost beyond words.” editor@saanichnews.com

Drunken munchies lead to break and enter Saanich police arrested two young women Tuesday morning after a drunken bout of the munchies appeared to a homeowner as a frightening break and enter. The lone resident in the 2900-block of Foul Bay Rd. was awoken by her growling chihuahua, and then heard strange voices in her home around 3:15 a.m., say Saanich police. Scared but determined to call police, the homeowner carefully crept to her living room, retrieved her cellphone and whispered her plight to a 911 operator. Saanich police units quickly cordoned off the area and brought in a police dog to track the thieves. Officers soon found two “highly intoxicated” females, 22 and 24 years old. It turns out the homeowner’s daughter had left the garage door open and a box of barbecue potato chips had beckoned the drunk women. “Effervescent chips seen shimmering in the moonlight were too yummy to pass up when you have the munchies,” opined Sgt. Dean Jantzen. The duo also allegedly absconded with some fabric. The suspects were held overnight for their own safety.

Saanich police appeal to witnesses in Duncan crash External investigation continues for RCMP Kyle Slavin News staff

Saanich police crash analysts are look-

ing for a witness to come forward to aid their ongoing external review of a North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP-involved car crash. Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen said that multiple witness accounts have placed either a black Jeep or SUV at the scene of the crash when it happened,

but officers have not spoken to the occupants of that vehicle. “We have witnesses for just before and just after the crash. We don't have a witness to the collision other than the two drivers (who were involved),” he said. The crash happened around 7 p.m. on Sunday June 3, when a woman made a

left turn from the northbound lane of the TransCanada Highway at Miller Road. Her car collided with the southbound marked police vehicle. Police believe the black Jeep or SUV was in the left turn lane behind the female driver. “It's impossible for these people to not see the collision,” Jantzen added. An RCMP policy relating to police-involved incidents that result in injury or death requires that an external investigation be conducted by an outside police department. The woman in the incident was injured. He said detectives have conducted a number of interviews, and are currently waiting to analyze data from the police cruiser's engine control module (the onboard computer). Police are asking the driver or occupants of that vehicle to call investigators at 250-475-4321. kslavin@saanichnews.com

“The board made a decision ultimately based on the information provided, and we continue to get more information all of the time,” Orcherton said, noting that the information continues to come in on both sides of the Wi-Fi argument. She would not speculate on any potential outcomes of the committee, which was struck in response to health concerns brought forward by parents. “Schools are a microcosm of the broader community and there are differences of opinion as to the risks of Wi-Fi,” Orcherton said. “There are people who feel there aren’t risks and there are obviously people who feel there are risks that we should be minimizing, particularly with young brains.” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Greater Victoria School district drafts needs-based budget Budget exercise to demonstrate spending gaps in education Natalie North News staff

Greater Victoria School District trustees haven’t taken the same stand as their counterparts in Cowichan, but they have made new moves toward restoring education funding by identifying exactly where their balanced budget falls short – and by how much. Unlike in Cowichan, where trustees face the threat of termination since having submitted a deficit budget to the Ministry of Education, Greater Victoria trustees passed a balanced budget submitted to the ministry in April. But the SD 61’s $171-million operating budget is likely not the only budget they’ll submit this year. On Monday night (June 11) members of the board’s operations, policy and planning committee unanimously passed

a second budget that identifies the need for an additional $48,463,915 to meet the educational needs of students. The needs budget provides a detailed breakdown of the actual costs associated with district’s needs – from staffing to supplies – as identified by school planning councils and community members throughout the school year. “It’s what the community thinks is necessary,â€? said board of education chairperson Peg Orcherton. “This is from the community ‌ and we’re hopeful to start using it as a basis in our (2012-13) budget deliberations, as the realities of what we can propose.â€? The budget advisory committee will present the document to the board of education for approval at the June 18 meeting before it can be sent to Education Minister George Abbott. In an accompanying draft letter to Abbott, Orcherton outlines four key factors that contributed to the need: insufficient funding for special needs students; consumer prices and cost of living increases, coupled with expanded mandates of the education system; partially-funded

provincial labour settlements; and loss of funding due to enrolment declines. In the past, the board has submitted a “restorative budget� document, based on 2001 operational costs and funding. The restorative budget focused strictly on the cuts made in the previous decade and didn’t take into account declining enrolment and school closures. The question of whether or not to submit the needs based budget in lieu of a balanced budget for 2012-13, is one trustees will encounter again in September when the planning process begins. “That would be quite a lengthy discussion and debate, I would expect, but it does show from the community’s perspective, what the needs are,� Orcherton said, adding that the 2012-13 budget will be especially difficult for a number of factors. Among those considerations are the board’s spending of a one-time $349,541 surplus this spring and the ministry’s decision to freeze funding for three years without taking into account increases in operational costs. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Big trophies now decorate Larry and Andrea Wilson’s pool table. The long-time pool players won an international doubles 8-ball championship in Las Vegas.

Saanich sharks win major pool tournament in Vegas Andrea said. “It’s knowing how to mentally prepare for a match. … If we start getting stressed, we remind ourselves it’s our novelty event.” The “novelty” event is one the amateur players, also the operators of the Vancouver Island Pool League, know their way around. In their first attempt at playing Scotch doubles at the BCA Pool League National Championships in 2000, the Wilsons won the open category. “It’s old hat for us now and not quite as exciting,” said Larry, who started playing pool 43 years ago in downtown Victoria. While the couple cut their teeth at different pool rooms around town, such as Peacock Billiards and the pool hall that once occupied the lower level of the Sugar Nightclub building, they now log most of their hours at home or the Brittania branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. When they finish renovating their Cordova Bay home, they’ll have the luxury of a 1,000 squarefoot pool room with three tables, two of which were used in highlevel professional play, including the 2011 Mosconi Cup. David Vandenberghe, chief operating officer of champion-

ship hosts Cue Sports International, based out of Nevada, sees the Wilsons regularly at tournaments on both sides of the border.

Internet funds cut from libraries Roszan Holmen News staff

Despite losing a $26,000 grant for Internet service, the Greater Victoria Public Library will not cut any of the coveted computer stations at its branches. “Because we are a larger system, it does impact our operating budget, but we are in the fortunate position that we can absorb the reduction,� said Maureen Sawa, CEO of GVPL. “But (for) many of our colleagues on the Island, in some of the smaller library systems on Vancouver Island, this is really going to be a blow.� Sawa was speaking out in solidarity with these smaller libraries, which stand to lose their only public computer stations. On March 31, the federal government cut its Community Access Program, which has helped to fund computers and Internet technologies in libraries since 1995.

According to Industry Canada, the program met its objective to make Internet accessible. It launched in an age when only 10 per cent of Canadian households had Internet service at home. As of 2010, that proportion had grown to 79 per cent. But from the perspective of GVPL’s manager of public service, the need for computers at the library has not changed “We see no sign of that diminishing, in spite of statistics that say that a huge number of Canadians have access to Internet in their own home,� said Patricia Eaton. The computer stations are well used and often have a queue, she said. A wide cross-section of people use the stations, including those of limited means, students and seniors without the knowledge to set up a home computer. The issue of the cut came to the attention of Victoria city council.

“All Canadians, regardless of economic status or location, should have the ability to access information and services through broadband connection to the Internet,� Coun. Pam Madoff wrote in a report. She recommended that city council write to local MPs requesting their support in reinstating the federal program. GVPL’s management are now looking at ways to absorb the $26,000 cut without affecting service. “A lot of the funding that we received helped to do the upgrades to our computers,� Sawa said. “It will mean that in some of our locations, that won’t happen as quickly.� Whether the library will ask for an increase in its annual budget request to compensate for the cut is yet to be seen. “We’re going to adjust some other areas,� Sawa said.

About 300 kilometres from the coast of Vancouver Island at a location dubbed Endeavor Ridge, a one-of-a-kind tsunami early warning system will soon been draped along the sea floor. From above, X will mark the spot more than 2,000 metres below, as four ultra-sensitive pressure devices, each at the end of a 25-kilometre fibre optic cable, feed data through the Neptune system and to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Network. Laying sausage-thick cable at 2000 metres down is painfully slow, delicate business, but it will give scientists and emergency authorities, for the first time, the direction and speed of tsunamis in the deep ocean, in real time. “These kind of instruments do double duty,� says Kate Moran, director of Neptune Canada, a consortium of universities led by the University of Victoria. “They help us understand the physics of the ocean and also contribute to public safety.� The giant, $3-million tsunami “antenna� will be plugged into the Neptune system, an 800-kilometre loop of powered fibre optic cable linked by 13-tonne nodes and feeding into hundreds of underwater scientific instruments. All data is streamed live through the Internet. The tsunami device works by using extremely sensitive pressure transducers spread in a star formation. For this trip, two of the four will be installed this month, and the remainder in September. They also plan to install the pressure devices on Neptune’s sister, Venus, a cable network in the Saanich Inlet and the mouth of the Fraser River. Moran noted that tsunamis barely cause a blip in wave height in the deep ocean, but, as well documented in disasters in Japan and the Indian Ocean, waves can reach the coast as an unstoppable wall of water. Prototypes of the pressure device detected tsunamis near Chile in 2010 and Samoa in 2009. Moran said this device will give

It could also act as an early warning system for Vancouver Island. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration operates a ring of buoys in the Pacific to provide tsunami early warning data. Moran hopes the tsunami antenna plugged into Neptune will help improve on that. “We’ve tested the prototype. Now we’ll install the real McCoy,� said Moran, a tsunami expert who once served as a science advisor for the Obama administration. “We’ll collect data and continue to improve predictions

of wave impacts on Vancouver Island.� Laying the fibre optic cable involves spooling it off the 274foot research vessel Thomas G. Thompson, and guiding it on the seafloor using a remotely operated submarine called an ROV. The ROV lays the cable and plugs it into the pressure device and a junction box on the Neptune network. “Laying cable with the ROV is very tricky because the ship is always moving, and you’ve got to follow the ROV,� Moran said. “It takes a long time. It’s a dance between the ship and ROV in two kilometres of water.� editor@saanichnews.com

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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about complete openness and great communication,â&#x20AC;? said Burton, who took on the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesperson role earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Transit TV is just one small component.â&#x20AC;? 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 employees and editing them into short segments. Burton will also appear on camera. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got his or

OUR VIEW

Democracy wilting in Ottawa W hile the lumping together of numerous pieces of federal legislation in one giant omnibus bill may not be precedent-setting, we fear that doing so threatens to reduce our democracy to mere window dressing. Stephen Harper’s Conservative government, still relatively young in its first majority, is attempting to reduce the level of debate on specific issues relating to everything from environmental protection to military spending to multiculturalism. No aspect of governmental operations is being spared here. Our concern is that sections of the bill pinpointed by hard-working MPs as troublesome – remember, this bill affects every federal ministry – cannot possibly be given the time they need to discuss potential problems with implementation before regulations and budgets get put in place. It’s not just opposing MPs who have been left scrambling by this tactic. Even Conservative MPs are forced to bone up on all aspects of the government’s budget legislation. Who’s got time for that? And how can we expect any of our elected representatives to be well-versed on even half of the legislation tabled? Meanwhile, Opposition and other MPs have tabled 800 possible amendments to the bill, which will no doubt cause further confusion and anxiety among this country’s lawmakers as the bill goes through the debate process. The feds have argued that time is of the essence as they work to keep our economy from spiralling as a growing number of European countries are experiencing. Still, that is not reason enough to subvert the democratic process and allow for the kind of proper debate that Canadians have come to expect. To use a well-used phrase, this can only end badly, both for the continuity of services, checks and balances in this country and the preservation of the type of democracy we all voted for – Conservatives, New Democrats, Liberals and Greens alike.

in that age bracket are. Not everyone wants to spend their remaining healthy years at a part-time, low-paying job to supplement their meagre Canada Pension Plan or Old Age Security cheques. What they did manage to save won’t go that far. The government does not owe us a living any more than our parents do. What you didn’t do (like save) during your working years may come back to haunt you. Who knew? The world is changing rapidly and the technological age is shrinking the job market, rather than expanding it. Jobs are disappearing while the government tries to revamp Canada’s Employment Insurance to ensure Canadians get whatever jobs are out there. We can no longer count on the public service to provide jobs with life-long security. Public servants and bureaucrats have sunk some countries by being so top-heavy and weaving so much red tape that it is impossible to escape going under. It’s a worldwide phenomenon, so we can’t even escape it by moving elsewhere. This is worrisome for many folks. So really, I disagree with the survey. I think everyone is worried, no matter what their age. As Bob Dylan once sang: “For the times they are a-changin’.” Pirjo Raits is the editor of the Sooke News Mirror. editor@sookenewsmirror.com

LETTERS GOING TO THE DOGS

Letters

On-leash animals unpredictable Re: Dog ownership rules restrictive (Letters, June 8) The comment “a leash only gives the illusion of control” is certainly true. My car was attacked last month by a dog on a leash, held by the owner. However, the woman did not have control of her animal. My dog was sleeping in the back seat while I was in the driver’s seat talking with my niece. Moments later, the lady and her dog came out and the dog instantly lunged at my parked car. I shouted “stop, stop,” but it continued to come at my car. I quickly rolled up my window and waited for her to restrain her dog. I got out, looked at the side of my car and commented, “Your dog did this to my car,” to which she replied, “A little bit of wax will take out those scratches.” She proceeded to leave the parking lot, and as she did so, I took down her licence plate number. I called the Saanich police to report the incident and they instructed me to stop by so they could take pictures. I told the constable, “You can still see the dog’s breakfast on my window.” The police have still not caught up to this woman, which leaves me with a $300 deductible to fix my car. I am sure my car’s DNA is still under that dog’s nails. Eddie Smith Saanich

Dog owners’ rights trample those of others Re: Dog ownership rules restrictive (Letters, June 8)

Good for the City of Victoria. Dog ownership should be restrictive. My wife and I have shaken our heads at dog owners numerous times over the past few years. Many seem to think that the general public enjoys having frisky, nosy dogs jumping on them, sniffing their picnics and licking their child’s faces. We’ve witnessed dogs trained on ‘mental’ leashes jumping on kids in on-leash areas. From the child’s perspective, these are not ‘doggie kisses,’ this is an attack. Children can be traumatized and the associated fear compounds with each recurrence. The dog owners we have observed have been blind to the fact that their dog has left a child screaming and in tears, and rarely, if ever, apologize. The city’s dog-control ‘browbeats’ can’t be zealous enough. Mark deLeeuw Saanich

Pets provide comfort to those in need Re: Dog ownership rules restrictive (Letters, June 8) I am shocked and saddened to read more on the subject of punishing dog owners. More and more our society is becoming a police state. More and more, those in power tell us we’ll be safer when we have more policing. First, we police the already downtrodden members of society, many of whom find solace and companionship with their dogs. They can’t leave them at

home as home is the street. So now we have a new “vice squad” aimed at folks who leave their people-loving canine friends, for a few moments, outside a store. I love to visit with the dogs. They add some pleasure to the humdrum business of shopping. Policing must be a profitable business. Imagine if we were to use these funds to support people in housing with the comfort of a non-judgmental friend, who raptly listens to the events of the day? There are people who prefer the comfort of their furry friends, who keep them fit with daily walks and provide love always. I can think of many occasions where dogs have literally saved peoples lives. As in the human kingdom, there are losers and no doubt there are a few undesirable dogs. Does that mean we need to punish them all? Joanna Wilkinson Victoria

Free-roaming cats bother dog owner Re: Dog ownership rules restrictive (Letters, June 8) Kudos to Nancy Raycroft. The City of Victoria must be “doghating cat people.” I am sick of my yard being used for a litter box. Dogs have to have licences and be on a leash. Why not cats? She’s also right about dogs enhancing their owner’s life. I don’t know what I’d do without mine. Barbara Ellis Esquimalt

Readers respond: Left-lane highway drivers

Sunday June 24th, 2012 10:30am to 3:30pm Hartland Landfill, #1 Hartland Avenue

Road rage incidents prompted by ‘enforcers’ Re: Slow drivers present greatest hazard (Letters, June 1) R. Chong’s response to “Keep pressuring high-risk drivers” (Our View, June 1) was right on point. In the editorial, road rage, among other problems, is mentioned. If one could quantify the number of reckless driving and road-rage incidents attributable to raised frustration levels caused by “self-appointed enforcers” futzing about, or sheer bloody mindedness, one would probably not be surprised at the statistics. There are always people who will flout the law, but that is for the police to deal with.

But, to speak the unspeakable, road rage doesn’t just happen. It is a reaction to an action, and there are many actions on the Pat Bay Highway that produce “high-risk” behaviour in a normally calm, low-risk driver. There is much more to this, of course, but what a great beginning. As the letter-writer suggested, a slight change in attitude is in order. Kim Shepherd Saanichton

Lack of confidence key factor in crashes Re: High speed main factor in traffic deaths (Letters, June 8) This is not necessarily so.

Lack of driver confidence when dealing with lane discipline on any highway is one of the causes of collisions. If a driver feels that the only way he is going to be able to make a safe left turn is to stick out in the ‘fast’ lane for 10 kilometres, he needs to take a refresher course on how to correctly signal his intention to move from the ‘slow’ lane, in order to make his intended turn to the left. Addressing those people who lack confidence on the road, don’t ever find yourself on a German or French highway. That’s where lane discipline is expected – and, I might say, demanded.

VicPD take notorious trafficker off the street Erin McCracken News staff

A week-long police investigation culminated in the arrest of a prolific offender, who police say is a “known and dangerous drug trafficker” with a history of violence. Bryden Bingley, 31, was arrested by police as he left his View Street residence on Tuesday. Two other men and a woman, were also arrested. Bingley has a criminal record for drugs and weapons stretching most of his adult life, according to court records. “We are thankful (Bingley) is

back in custody, and will continue to monitor and target his activities until things change,” said Staff Sgt. Dave Bown. VicPD launched the investigation after receiving information about a possible gun at a residence in the 800-block of View St. A search warrant executed at the home June 5 turned up more than $5,000 worth of cocaine and heroin, although no firearm was found, said Const. Mike Russell. Bingley and Saanich resident Rose Stewart, 30, each face a number of counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

Teens nabbed for downtown muggings Victoria police arrested two teenagers after two people were mugged at knifepoint in separate incidents this past week. An 18-year-old Saanich man and a 17-yearold accomplice were picked up by police late Saturday after a man was stabbed twice and robbed in Bastion Square earlier in the evening. "The suspects demanded the victim’s phone and money, and when the victim refused, a fight ensued," Victoria police Const. Mike Russell said in a statement. Investigating officers recognized similarities between the Saturday night robbery and a mugging on June 6 behind the Fairmont Empress Hotel. In that incident, the victim was also threatened at knifepoint and asked to hand over his wallet and cellphone. Several criminal charges against the suspects are being considered. emccracken@vicnews.com

Slow start for downtown Wi-Fi project

THE REWARDS YOU WANT

Roszan Holmen News staff

Three months since a grassroots initiative scored a $3,500 grant to launch wireless Internet service downtown, the project has hit a speed bump. “We are a bit behind,” admitted Liam McLachlan, volunteer project manager for the non-profit named MeshMesh. In February, it was the darling of community judges belonging to the Awesome Sh*t Club, which doles out small grants to help community groups launch “awesome” ideas. MeshMesh pitched a plan to convince downtown businesses to share their Internet with the public, simply by installing a router to send their wireless signal to anyone within 30 metres. Six businesses have signed on, each paying $150 for hardware. In exchange, an ad for their business flashes on the screen of people logging on. But today there are still only six business signed on, serving six to 15 people with free Wi-Fi each day. “The interest is still there, people are still getting in touch with us,” McLachlan said, noting the volunteers at MeshMesh are too busy with their day jobs to respond. Meanwhile, the Downtown Victoria Business Association launched its own $25,000 Wi-Fi network April 19. “It’s thriving,” said Ken Kelly, DVBA general manager. “We’re pleased with it. We’ve got as many as 40 users at any one moment in time.” The association plans to monitor the new service over the summer and may expand the service, pending results. McLachlan welcomes the business group’s initiative, saying the more Wi-Fi coverage downtown, the better. And despite the slow start for MeshMesh, he’s not giving up. Rather, he’s now calling out for more volunteers to sell the idea to businesses and install routers. McLachlan also hopes to attract a group of more technically capable volunteers for a different, but related goal of MeshMesh: to enable food carts or other market vendors to use it for high-speed debit and credit transactions. “We think that would make open-air markets a lot more accessible,” he said. “It’s a real benefit to those small businesses, because then it’s a nocost, or low-cost, merchant service for them.” Free Wi-Fi is also catching on in Saanich. Municipal buildings such as recreation centres, fire halls and the municipal hall now offer the service. “I think, in general, it’s becoming a bit of an expectation that the service of Wi-Fi is provided,” said Jon Woodland, assistant manager in Saanich’s information technology department. Next up, Saanich is looking for partnerships that can help provide free Wi-Fi at parks during municipal events. – with files from Kyle Slavin rholmen@vicnews.com

Aging wine law leaves sour taste Feds move to modernize cross-border purchasing Tom Fletcher Black Press

The federal government is finally moving to modernize its alcohol transportation rules, amending a 1928 law that prevents people from buying wine across provincial borders. The House of Commons has unanimously supported a private members’ bill from OkanaganCoquihalla MP Dan Albas that provides for a personal exemption from a law created during the Prohibition era to stop smuggling and tax evasion. The wine industry and B.C. politicians have argued that individuals should be able to buy or order a case of wine they enjoyed while on vacation. The bill still has to pass the Senate. Once the federal law is changed, provinces would need to establish an exemption to allow personal purchase and shipment of alcoholic beverages across provincial borders. The B.C. government announced last Thursday its own provincial tax exemptions for alcoholic beverages brought into the province for personal use. B.C. residents can now bring back up to one standard case of wine (nine litres), four bottles of spirits (three litres) and a combined total of six dozen beer, cider and coolers (25.6 litres) from each trip to another province, without paying B.C. tax on it. Those limits are similar to those permitted by Ontario, Nova Scotia and Yukon and are among the highest in Canada, said Rich Coleman, minister responsible for B.C. liquor and gambling policy. He added that the federal change will particularly help B.C. and Ontario, which have well-developed wine industries. Canada’s archaic wine laws have long been a target of industry and politicians. Premier Christy Clark, former premier Gordon Campbell and B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix have all campaigned for the federal change. In May 2011, broadcaster Terry David Mulligan took up the cause. He notified police and liquor control officials before carrying a case each of B.C. and Ontario wine in the trunk of his car from Penticton into Alberta, hoping to be charged under the 1928 law. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Victoria seeks funds for electric charging stations Questions remain on recouping costs Roszan Holmen News staff

A $2.74-million pot of provincial money is now available for communities looking to install charging stations for electric vehicles. While the offer of a 75-per-cent rebate won Victoria council’s support, members did have some concerns. “I certainly want to provide incentives to encourage use,” said Coun. Ben Isitt. He didn’t support the idea, how-

ever, of providing the service free of charge, a scenario implied in the information provided to councillors. “I can support this on condition that they have a payment (system).” Ismo Husu, Victoria’s manager of parking services, brought the opportunity to a recent meeting of council’s energy and infrastructure standing committee. “This could be looked at as somewhat of a pilot,” Husu said. “There is going to be potential for this to be expanded in a significant way in the future.” There are still a lot of things up in the air, he added. Remaining questions include the cost to the city and where to place the stations. While the provincial grant targets

Level 2 charging stations, which can recharge a car in two or four hours, Husu questioned whether a less powerful station would be adequate for the city’s needs. “How fast do we need to charge somebody else’s car?” he asked. The committee voted to direct staff to pursue the grant, but also to research user-pay options. While they discussed coin-operated or creditcard swipe stations, these possibilities could be thwarted by the fact that under law, only B.C. Hydro can sell electricity. It’s a situation that Colwood wrestled with

recently. In February, the West Shore municipality approved the installation of three electric vehicle charging stations. One option considered was recouping electricity costs by charging for the parking space rather than the electricity. Colwood Coun. Judith Cullington, however, had reservations with this plan. “It would probably cost more to put in infrastructure to charge a fee than we’d get back in fees,” she said at the time. – with files from the Goldstream Gazette. rholmen@vicnews.com

Remote lakes uncovered Laura Lavin News staff

From a pleasant afternoon with the family at Glen Lake in Langford, to a bike ride out to Metchosin’s hidden beauty Blinkhorn Lake, to an epic day hike up to Sheilds Lake in the Sooke Hills wilderness, Victoria author Adam Ungstad has done it all – and now he’s written a book about it. “I decided to write it in late August of 2011, as I was looking for information about the remote lakes in the Sea to Sea Regional Park Reserve, which is close by Sooke,” said Ungstad. “I couldn’t find any reliable information about the trails or what to expect on a hike up there, and thought: ‘Why hasn’t someone written a book about the lakes in the area?’ Of course, the next thought was, ‘Why don’t I write a book about lakes in the area?’” Ungstad’s new guidebook, Secret Lakes of Southern Vancouver Island helps outdoor enthusiasts explore and enjoy the many lakes within a short drive or cycle ride from Victoria. “The first time I ‘discovered’ Thetis Lake was by bike via the Galloping Goose trail about seven years ago. I wasn’t a big cyclist then, and wasn’t sure I’d be able to find the lake, but the experience left

a lasting impression,” said Ungstad. “When I first got there I thought that the main beach was everything, but decided to walk along the trail just to see what else was there – and of course discovered some spectacular view points and secluded coves. “From that point on I was hooked, and each summer I would ride a bit further getting to know the area better, and continually being fascinated by just how many different lakes there are that are accessible by bicycle from town. With each new lake I found my questions, curiosity and admiration grew. I wanted to know them all.” The guidebook includes recreational information, information on natural features and history for each of the 25 lakes and also features top 10 lists to help find the best lakes for each activity. The guidebook features maps and directions that show trails, beaches, viewpoints, boat launches, picnic tables, washrooms and parking, while photos and the Lakes 101 section answer a myriad of questions. “Essentially I wrote the book I wanted to read. Other guidebooks had a little bit of information about lakes here

and there, but they usually covered just the large lakes I already knew, and often they didn’t have much about the history of the lakes. I found it fascinating to imagine being an early settler of Vancouver Island, and spent a lot of time at different archives and museums learning about who these people were,” he said. Secret Lakes book launch is 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, June 18 at the Prospect Lake Golf Course, 4633 Prospect Lake Rd., with partial proceeds from the launch going to The Land Conservancy. Tickets, $40, are available at secretlakes.ca. Ticket price includes a signed copy of the book, a presentation on the history and nature of local lakes by the author, and a presentation on the Wild Hills and Beaches Campaign by TLC. Secret Lakes of Southern Vancouver Island is $19.95 and is available at Bolen Books, 1644 Hillside Ave., Ivy’s Bookshop, 2188 Oak Bay Ave. and other Greater Victoria locations. llavin@vicnews.com

Expanded access to McNeill Bay leads to more dog-friendly Oak Bay Council approves dog pilot project Brittany Lee News staff

Dog owners in Oak Bay will soon be able to walk their canines on McNeill Bay Beach from sunrise to sunset. Council has approved a pilot project to expand the hours dogs are allowed on McNeill Bay Beach throughout the summer months. In a report presented to council, members from the Windsor Park Dog Group said expanding access to the beach is the most immediate need for dog owners. “Dogs need reasonably big spaces (to exercise in), so we looked at a whole bunch of parks in Oak Bay,” Gloria Back, from the Windsor Park Dog Group, said. “(McNeill Bay Beach) is a very different kind of beach. It’s cold and windy.” Back, along with Chris Ash and a small group of volunteers, tabled the report after Mayor Nils Jensen requested a dog management report in January. Working with Oak Bay Parks, Victoria Animal Control Services, and the opinions of both dog and non-dog owners, the group identified six areas in Oak Bay that could be made more “dog-friendly.” McNeill Bay was chosen as a good spot for dogs because it isn’t an “ideal” beach for people without dogs. “It’s got big pebbles … it’s got a lot of goose poop there in the summer, so it’s not very hygienic for kids to play,” Back said. “It’s a long strip and that’s where we

English field lab sisters Emily and Millie carry their rubber ducks along Willows beach. feel that dogs can get exercise.” For eight to 10 weeks, dogs will be allowed almost unlimited access on the beach. Dogs will be prohibited from Kitty Islet and McMicking Point, areas near the beach that will be reserved for families to use, Back said. The current bylaw allows dogs on McNeill Bay from sunrise to 11 a.m. and from 7 p.m. to sunset, from May through September. The pilot project is “a good way to move forward” in making the municipality more dogfriendly, said Jensen. “Council came to the conclusion that it was a reasonable request to start with a small pilot (project),” he said. The fact that the group’s report was so “thorough, wellresearched, and balanced” led to council’s unanimous vote for the project, said Jensen. The project will go through two

more bylaw readings this month before being implemented. Other suggestions in the report, which consists of 21 recommendations, include looking at expanding access to dogs in other parks or beaches, as well as providing easier access to information regarding dog licensing and bylaws. Spear grass remediation and a dog poop bag pilot project was also part of the report. Council has asked Oak Bay parks to figure out costs and locations for the pilot project and bring recommendations back to council in late summer or early fall. The poop bag pilot project would involve placing bags for dog owners to use in various areas of the municipality. Such programs already exist in Victoria, Saanich and Sidney. “We acknowledge that not every dog owner is as responsible as they should be,” Back said, adding that the hope would be to see if people use the bags and whether or not the amount of dog feces in parks is reduced. The McNeill Bay pilot project, along with other recommendations from the report, will be evaluated in the fall. The dog management report can be viewed on the municipality’s website, oakbaybc.org, and public input is welcome. “We’re looking at efficiencies: how can we make things better? How can we make our parks better, more useable?” Jensen said. “We’re doing that on a wide range of issues across the board. … (Dog management) was just one of the many initiatives we have for community engagement.” reporter@vicnews.com

Victoria OK’s 1898 home for condos Roszan Holmen News staff

The North Jubilee neighbourhood is losing four rental units, but gaining so much more through a rehabilitation proposal supported unanimously by Victoria council. In 2010, a fire left three of five units in an 1898-vintage house at 1731 Albert St. uninhabitable. The longtime homeowner recently sold to Thomas Leahy, who proposes to rehabilitate the building despite its deteriorated condition.

City staff recommended rejecting Leahy’s application for the fact it entails converting the units into strata titles and designates only one unit for rental. Doing so contravenes a city policy that forbids condo conversions of buildings with five or more rental units. The extenuating circumstances of the property, however, led Coun. Pam Madoff to support the application. ‘To me, it’s a miracle,’ said Madoff, an advocate of heritage preservation. ‘The owner could knock this building down tomorrow.’

Baseball returns to RAP Travis Paterson News staff

West Coast League baseball will make its way to Victoria after all. Standing on the concourse above Royal Athletic Park’s grassed-over baseball diamond on Wednesday, WCL president Ken Wilson announced a Victoria franchise has been granted and will play out of the historic downtown stadium, beginning in June of 2013. “For those who don’t know it, the West Coast League is to baseball what the Western Hockey League is to hockey,” Wilson said, referring to the amateur WCL being a feeder to Major League Baseball. Seattle-based Wilson tried to land a franchise in Victoria in 2008, but that

deal was edged out by the Victoria Seals. Sadly, the Seals only survived two seasons and one of the key issues in their demise was a revenue sharing deal with RAP’s concessions. Team owner John McLean, who did the speaking on behalf of himself and co-owner Dwight Willet, agreed the yetto-be-named team’s deal to play at RAP hinged on several economic factors. McLean, a business partner with Willet in their native Vancouver, wouldn’t speak to the percentage of revenue his team would receive. But he was blunt in his assessment of the park’s facilities. “We’ll have to bring in outside food vendors to supplement the concession stands.” McLean is aware of the Seals’ demise and the Capitals before that, though the

Capitals stood strongest amongst a collapsing league. “We’ve calculated based on those teams that we should be going for 1,000 to 1,500 fans per game,” McLean said. Ticket prices have not been sorted and vary around the league. The Kelowna Falcons charge $10 general admission for adults and $5 for kids and seniors, which is a slight discount from the Seals. The community will be involved in the naming of the team, though McLean made it clear he would like to align the club with Victoria’s baseball history where possible. Early possible names include the 1911 Victoria Islanders (later named the Bees), 1913 Capitals and 1915 Maple Leafs. sports@vicnews.com

Series gets an Olympic boost Olympians to race Victoria Triathlon at Elk Lake Travis Paterson News staff

Brent McMahon will compete in the Saunders Subaru Victoria Triathlon on Sunday (June 17), just five days after officially being named to the Canadian Olympic team going to London. Triathlon Canada released the five-member team on Tuesday, with McMahon, Simon Whitfield, Kyle Jones, Paula Findlay and Kathy Tremblay. McMahon is in the midst of his pre-London training regimen. Because of it, he will partner with 2008 Olympian Carolyn Murray, a locally based coach, rather than competing in a full Olympic distance race on Sunday. Approximately 1,000 participants will make a mass start for all three events, Brent McMahon the Half Iron (1.9 kilometre swim, 90km bike and 20km run), Olympic (1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run), and sprint (500m swim, 20km bike and 5km run), at 6:45 a.m. from Hamsterly beach. Sunday marks the start of triathlon season in Victoria, with the 33rd Self Transcendence Triathlon set for Aug. 5, also at Elk Lake. Also in early August, all eyes will be fixed on Whitfield’s last stand as he attempts to add to his Olympic gold and silver medals in London. The Olympic women’s triathlon is Aug. 4, and men’s is Aug. 7. Defending Victoria Triathlon Half Iron champ Adam O’Meara is the favourite to win Sunday’s Half Iron. O’Meara won the first Subaru Western Triathlon series race at Shawnigan Lake on May 27. New to the Victoria Triathlon this year is a family walk and kids run, which take place Saturday at 2 and 2:30 p.m., from Hamsterly beach. sports@vicnews.com

Major future for junior eight Claremont rowing returns to nationals Travis Paterson News staff

With an Olympic bloodline in their mix, the Claremont secondary’s junior boys eight captured a silver medal at the national school rowing championships June 2 and 3. Claremont sent a rowing team to the nationals for the first time under coach Gord Redlin, who moved to Claremont four years ago. They returned with the junior eight silver medal as well as some near podium finishes by the junior girls double and quad, junior boys double. “The great thing about the junior boys eight is they can do it again next year as they’re only in Grade 9,” Redlin said. To be fair, the junior boys eight team does feature one Grade 10. Kylie Redlin, daughter of the coach, brought her experience to the team and is part of a crew rich in rowing bloodlines.

Sitting sixth in the boat is William Laumann-Wallace, son of Olympic medalists Silken Laumann and John Wallace. In case a refresher is needed, mom Laumann, a hometown hero, totalled one silver and two bronze at three different Olympics. Dad Wallace was part of Canada’s men’s eight gold medal winners in 1992 with another hometown hero, Derek Porter among them. Overall, Claremont finished 24th among 137 schools, with just 14 rowers. “The team did well to fight sloppy rowing conditions, including wind and rough waters, as well as torrential downpours that put the regatta on hold at times,” Redlin said. Grade 11 Ali Zwicker, one of the program’s few seniors, competed in the single scull. A tough initial heat kept Zwicker out of the final, where the top three on the podium were the same three from Zwicker’s opening race. “She finished with the seventh fastest time overall against a field with (Grade 12s),” Redlin said. Making up the crew with Lau-

Did you know? ■ The last Claremont team to go to nationals was the women’s doubles crew of Allie DeLarge and Emily Lerhe. The Victoria City Rowing Club members entered under the Claremont banner in 2010 and roasted the competition for senior gold.

mann-Wallace are Gabe Swift at stroke and Tyler Pickford, Jordan Muller, Domenic Mazzoni, Bailey Walker, Jake Sherman, and Preston Ruygrok in the bow. Muller and Walker from the eight also competed in the junior boys double but fell short of advancing past the semifinal. Cailyn Wolski and Sofia Donnecke finished fifth in the girls junior double, and the girls junior quad of Wolski, Kenzie Rosene, Meg Egilson and Donnecke finished fourth, just missing the podium.

Fines target bootleggers, alcohol servers Tom Fletcher Black Press

New B.C. liquor regulations include a $575 fine for adults who buy alcohol for underaged drinkers, or serve them in restaurants and pubs. The fines apply to serving staff who fail to check identification, in addition to penalties already in place for licensed establishments that serve under-aged drinkers. Those penalties range from fines of $7,500 to $10,000 or a licence suspension of 10 to 15 days. Parents and guardians who provide booze to their under-19 children are exempt from the tickets. "These changes give police and liquor inspectors another tool to make it harder for minors to get alcohol," said Rich Coleman, minister responsible for liquor and gambling policy. The new tickets are part of an effort by the B.C. government to streamline the court system, after impos-

ing new administrative penalties for impaired driving. For supplying alcohol to minors, police previously handed out court appearance notices. The new tickets can still be disputed in court, but the onus is

on the person ticketed to dispute or pay it. B.C. Restaurant and Foodservices Association president Ian Tostenson said the organization supports the new penalties.

After 35 years of sitting vacant, the Janion building will be restored. On Monday, Jon Stovell of Reliance Properties announced the details of his purchase of the decaying historic building

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. 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 starstudded 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. Stovell, however, said he’s yet to have this conversation with the city. “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,” he said. rholmen@vicnews.com

Chamber to study possible West Shore commuter ferry Jim Zeeben News staff

It’s still just an idea but now it’s one with the building blocks in place to actually make it happen. The concept of a ferry linking the West Shore to downtown Victoria has been bandied about before, but now that prime real estate at Royal Bay has been sold to developers, the proposal can be taken a little more seriously. “The trigger, really, for us is the sale of Royal Bay,” said Westshore Chamber of Commerce CEO Dan Spinner, referring to the sale of 419 acres of long empty waterfront property in Colwood. In May, B.C. Investment Management Corp. purchased the land from Lehigh Hanson. The longrange plan calls for a village centre and 2,800 single family homes. The area will also be home to a new high school within the Sooke School District. The chamber announced June 7 it will facilitate a study by Black Ball Ferry Line and Royal Roads University into the feasibility of a commuter ferry connecting the Inner Harbour and the West Shore. Though Black Ball is a U.S. company, its president, Ryan Burles, lives in Metchosin. Black Ball has a number of staffers who have direct experience with smaller ferries serving the islands of Puget Sound. A ferry service to the Inner Harbour would help protect “quality of life” for commuters living on the burgeoning West Shore, Burle said. “It is kind of a puzzle,” he said, noting the most critical piece will be ensuring a ferry fits seamlessly into other transit services. That means it needs to be accessible by bus or light rail and the cost for riding the ferry can’t be prohibitive.

One model that works is the Sea Bus in Vancouver, which requires a ticket that allows riders to use the Sky Train and the bus system. However, the big difference is that the Sea Bus operates over a relatively calm surface while Royal Bay to the Inner Harbour can be rough waters. “No matter what, every route is different,” Burle said. “It’s not like an airport.” Exactly what the sea state allows is one of the biggest questions needing to be addressed by the ferry study. Another is whether the developers planning the

Royal Bay community will commit to a terminal on the land, said Burle, noting that his company can help by offering expertise on the subject from the ground floor. RRU student Jonathon Calderwood has been tasked with the study. It will focus on whether a passenger ferry would ease the Colwood crawl, the notorious rushhour traffic snarl that slows commuters who live on the West Shore but work in the metropolitan core. Chamber public relations co-ordinator Lindsay Vogan said Calderwood should

have his report finished by the end of this year. “He’ll be doing a lot of interviews,” she said. “With the amount of people moving to the West Shore and how fast it’s growing it just makes sense to give people a different way of getting to and from work.” The study will examine best practices of other commuter boat services around the continent as well as delve into ferry failures. Groups with a stake in such a commuter service on the West Shore will also be interviewed. editor@goldstreamnews.com

Grand opening.

Get your paws on these amazing offers.

Royal Victoria Yacht Club opens doors for first time For the first time, the Royal Victoria Yacht Club is opening its doors to the public at an open house on 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 RVYC Commodore. “While participation levels in both racing and cruising are the highest they have been in over a decade, the club has noticed that with changes in demographics and economics, there are fewer junior sailors staying on as young adult members, and the average age of members continues to increase every year.” The club is taking steps to reverse this trend in an attempt to return to a more even and sustainable age distribution. To achieve its goal, the club is promoting boating activities that will appeal to all ages and has even reduced fees for younger members. The club has a fleet of sailboats available for use by its members, ranging from sporty dinghies to stable 24-foot keelboats, making sailing accessible to members that don’t have a boat. The club also offers summer youth and adult sailing lessons which are available to non-members who just want to give it a try. “We see that yacht clubs are most vibrant and healthy when there is an interaction and bond between generations, such as when people learn to sail in dinghies or bigger boats, alongside older and younger people,” said Smith. The open house will allow anyone with an interest in boating to enjoy the club for the day and learn more about it. The open house includes tours and on-the-water demonstrations, as well as hot dogs and activities for kids and a draw for prizes. The event takes place on Saturday, June 16, 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
