WITHOUT A TRACE Fernwood man’s disappearance baffles family, detectives Erin McCracken News staff

When Daniel Gandza walked out the door of his friend’s apartment following dinner and a round of video games, it was as though he vanished into thin air. After heading out between 2:30 and 3 a.m. on April 27, he reached his basement suite, located a 15-minute walk away, near Fernwood Road and Walnut Street. Police know Gandza changed his clothes. His hiking boots and keys are gone, though his cellphone was left behind. His absence was immediately noted by his roommates and his employer; Gandza was scheduled to work the next morning. “It’s going on two months now and it just feels like it’s longer than that,” said his older sister, Joan Gandza, of View Royal. “So we’re worried, very worried.” The family has put up 300 posters in parks and neighbourhoods where the commercial and residential painter frequented or lived, including Beacon Hill and Fernwood, as well as around Mount Finlayson, Mount Doug and East Sooke regional park.

“Are there other possibilities out there? Absolutely. Could he have bonked his head and succumbed (to his injuries). Sure. Did he end it all? Possibly.” – Stephanie Jarymy, Daniel Gandza’s sister Victoria police detectives have reached out to police and community partners in B.C. and Alberta, exhausting six to 10 tips, including reports of possible sightings. It’s rare when detectives aren’t able to uncover signs that could explain a disappearance, such as mental illness, or a mental breakdown caused by a romantic breakup or a job loss. Of the 30 people police have interviewed, all said the same thing about the soft-spoken, generous man who enjoys gaming, skateboarding, hiking and camping. “In this case, we talked to all of Daniel’s family and friends and he was still the same way as

he was a couple weeks before, the month before,” said Victoria police Det. Paul Spencelayh, one of three detectives investigating the case. Gandza didn’t have a criminal past, wasn’t a drug user, had no enemies and had never before disappeared. Cellphone, computer and banking checks have yielded no clues. Stephanie Jarymy last spoke to her younger brother by telephone on April 25 to help plan his move out of his suite a few days later. “To me, that day he seemed fine,” said Jarymy, who lives in Esquimalt. “He was busy working, I was trying to get into the dentist office. It just seemed like a regular conversation I had with him.” Foul play, such as a mugging gone wrong, has been ruled out by police. “Traditionally, when that happens, you either find a person stumbling out of the hospital because they have a head injury or something, or you find a body on the road,” Spencelayh said.

Bidders sought for old train station Roszan Holmen News staff

A VIA Rail train prepares to leave the downtown station in 2010.

The City of Victoria is asking parties interested in acquiring the former E & N Railway station to submit proposals for its relocation and reuse. It’s not going

to be an easy job for the winning proponent, however. “This building is built on slab – it cannot be picked up and moved,” Coun. Pam Madoff said. “It’s likely to have to be deconstructed and rebuilt.” The train station, located on

the east side of the Johnson Street bridge, was closed in April 2011, when VIA Rail stopped its Victoria-to-Courtenay run due to deteriorating track conditions. While the train is expected to run again in 2013, its new terminus will likely be in Vic West.

City engineer Peter Sparanese told council that proposals will be evaluated based on their cost to the city, as well as the “highest and best use” of the structure. PLEASE SEE: Station move, Page A4

Seniors housing pitched for Bayview Roszan Holmen

Fuel Efficient. High Performance.

News staff

Celebrating 60 years in Canada

As construction proceeds on the second of three residential towers originally planned for an eight-acre site in Vic West, the project developer is moving forward with a different phase of its large-scale development. Bayview Properties proposes 95 units of seniors’ housing, 24 regular residential units and a coffee shop at 80 Saghalie Rd. The project would run adjacent to the train tracks along Kimta Road, up to the corner of Tyee Road. “Market research together with

input gathered through consultation with the community indicates a strong opportunity and need for this form of housing,” states Bayview’s application. “It will offer ‘aging in place,’ allowing residents to remain within their familiar community.” At a planning and land-use committee meeting June 7, councillors considered rezoning the land to permit seniors’ housing and to increase the allowable density. While generally supportive of the application, the committee made one significant recommendation. “In the drawings we were pro-

vided with, they show all these happy pedestrians going back and forth across the railway tracks,” said Coun. Pam Madoff. The E&N train likely won’t pass through the development when it restarts in 2013, however, the city is preserving the rail corridor all the way to the downtown for a possible extension in the future. “If you looked at that drawing and you moved into this new development, I’m sure you’d be back in a few years if there was a proposal to put a train on there, saying ‘this was never our understanding,’” Madoff said. rholmen@vicnews.com

Victoria police arrested two teenagers after two people were mugged at knifepoint in separate incidents. An 18-year-old Saanich man and a 17-year-old accomplice were picked up by police late Saturday after a man was stabbed twice and robbed in Bastion Square earlier in the evening. A fight ensued after the victim refused to hand over his wallet and cellphone. The crime was similar to a June 6 mugging behind the Fairmont Empress Hotel. The victim was threatened at knifepoint and asked to hand over his wallet and cellphone. The teens are suspects in both incidents. emccracken@vicnews.com

Overhead view of the Rock Bay lands shows part of the area to be purchased by the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations from Transport Canada.

First Nations to re-establish historic ties to Victoria Harbour Rock Bay remediation could lead to new city park: mayor Roszan Holmen News staff

The Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations have agreed to purchase property at Rock Bay once Transport Canada remediates the land. The three parties have signed an agreement to transfer a 1.71hectare parcel at Barclay Point for $2.8 million. Transport Canada announced the deal alongside a cost-sharing agreement with B.C. Hydro to remediate Rock Bay fully by 2016. Bob Mason, who oversees economic development for the Esquimalt First Nation, said he anticipates the property will serve as a revenue stream. “I think the property will ultimately have some sort of commercial industrial use; that’s consistent with our desire,” said Mason, of Vancouver-based Longbow Properties. More importantly, the acqui-

sition will serve to re-establish historical ties to the land. “It gives them a foothold in the Inner Harbour, and that’s really where they came from years and years ago,” he said. “There is an emotional attachment. … The First Nations expressed a very strong interest in this property a long time ago.” On Thursday, Transport Canada announced it will launch Phase 3 of its remediation of Rock Bay. To date, Transport Canada and B.C. Hydro have spent $19 million and $30 million on the project, respectively, over the past decade. For the upcoming work, B.C. Hydro has committed $18.8 million. Transport Canada is taking the lead on the project, and its contribution won’t be known until it goes out to tender. Both provincial and federal bodies own adjoining parcels of land around the bay, which sit fenced off and mostly vacant.

Once remediated, B.C. Hydro plans to dispose of its property, which sits farther inland adjacent to Government and Pembroke streets. It will first offer the land at fair market value to any level of government. If it receives no offers, then it plans to sell the land on the open market. The City of Victoria has slated Rock Bay as critical to its economic development strategy. Mayor Dean Fortin praised the remediation plan. “It’s good to get some more activity and life in the downtown, at the north end,” he said. “It’s way better than just having derelict property sitting there.” The land holds high potential for an industrial high-tech park and some kind of live-work opportunities, Fortin said. “Certainly there is also an opportunity for a park … Strangely the remediation level for industrial land is the same for a park.” rholmen@vicnews.com

Libraries look for savings after feds cut Internet funding Despite losing a $26,000 grant for Internet service, the Greater Victoria Public Library will not be cutting 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 (smaller libraries) on the Island, in some of the smaller library systems on Vancouver

Island, this is really going to be a blow.” On March 31, the federal government cut its Community Access Program, which has helped to fund computers and Internet technologies in libraries since 1995.

GVPL management is looking at ways to absorb the cut without affecting service. To read an extended version of this story, search ‘Greater Victoria libraries’ at vicnews.com. rholmen@vicnews.com

The criteria left councillors with questions and a desire for more input. “My gut feeling is given sensitivities around rail, heritage elements and other considerations, there could be value in sounding out council’s views,” said Coun. Ben Isitt. He argued that council, rather than staff, should make the final decision. City manager Gail Stephens, however, said a more appropriate council role would be giving input into more specific evaluation criteria. In ranking the proposals, Coun. Charlayne Thornton-Joe said local use of the train station should get more weight than other considerations. Mayor Dean Fortin disagreed. “If a guy on Salt Spring Island will do it for free, I’m more interested in that than I am interested in paying somebody a lot of money to keep it for (relocation within) Victoria.” Once the request for proposals is officially made, it will be posted at www.victoria.ca. rholmen@vicnews.com

Review into UVic data theft calls for 29 recommendations Kyle Slavin News staff

A detailed privacy review, commissioned by the University of Victoria after confidential employee information was stolen in January, says the major data breach was a preventable incident. The report, written by the province’s former Information and Privacy Commissioner David Flaherty, lists 29 recommendations to prevent similar incidents in the future. “This major data breach should not have happened if the established data loss prevention and protection measures had been followed. In my view, the university was prepared to prevent such an occurrence,� Flaherty wrote in his report, released June 1. On Jan. 7 or 8, thieves targeted the payroll department in the non-alarmed Administrative Services Building, and stole a number of electronics. Among them was an unencrypted USB flash drive. That flash drive held the names, banking information and social insurance numbers of all 11,841 employees on UVic’s payroll since 2010.

Given the volume of sensitive information on the device, “(the) protections in place for the flash drive were not ‘reasonable’ in the circumstances,â€? Flaherty wrote. The device was stored in a locked room, in a locked safe, in a locked cabinet. Flaherty’s report came two months after the province’s current Information and Privacy Commissioner released similar investigative findings. Flaherty’s report covers a wide scope, from administrative duty priorities to auditing security measures. Among the recommendations is mandatory annual privacy and security training for all university nonacademic staff who handle personal information. “Existing ‌ materials demonstrate that plenty of university training has been prepared, but evidently it was not targeted well enough, or repeated often enough, to prevent inadequate security practices that resulted in a data theft and a major breach.â€? Flaherty recommended the university continually invest in hardware and software to protect data that requires security. And back-up data should be stored off site. And

he advised UVic to stop storing social insurance numbers. “Data minimization has to become more than a buzzword at the university,â€? he wrote. An internal assessment, conducted by UVic professor Jamie Cassels, states that the university responded well to the data breach. â€œâ€Ś (The) university has plans for reviewing information security, physical security, privacy and records management policies on an ongoing basis,â€? he wrote. “The various activities and initiatives, planned and ongoing, all seem appropriate, effective and sufficient.â€? A press release from UVic says they are “considering how best to implement (Flaherty’s) recommendations,â€? and added that they have already taken some preventative steps. A Saanich police investigation into the theft is still ongoing. The majority of the electronics that were stolen were recovered in late January, but the flash drive in question is still outstanding. To read Flaherty’s full report, and see a list of all 29 recommendations, visit uvic.ca/ infobreach. kslavin@saanichnews.com

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 nonprofit 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 approximately 30 metres. Six businesses signed on, each paying $150 for the 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, adding 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 targets pedestrian traffic at nine of the heaviest traffic areas downtown. “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. People are needed to sell the idea to more businesses and help 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

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 of infrastructure 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

School District still undecided on Wi-Fi Natalie North

“Schools are a microcosm of the broader community and there are differences of opinion as to the risks of Wi-Fi.�

News staff

No elementary schools within the Greater Victoria School District have 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 administration, as well as members from the Allied Specialists Association and the Principals’ Association. The committee met with concerned parents and sought consult 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,â€? said Patrick Duncan, Greater Victoria School District associate superintendent and newly-appointed chair of the committee. “I haven’t heard of any further outcry from parents. There is one group who has continued to bring forward

– Greater Victoria School District board chair Peg Orcherton 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 representatives to participate regardless to get the committee moving forward again, board of education chair Peg Orcherton confirmed. Until then, the only elementary school in Greater Victoria with wireless Internet remains George Jay elementary. Every high school and middle

school within the district already had Wi-Fi before the moratorium was implemented. “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

Police appeal for answers in year-old death investigation Street worker died from non-prescription drug overdose Kyle Slavin News staff

Fewer questions surrounding the death of Shannon Rogers remain, after Saanich police revealed the 26-year-old overdosed on a lethal amount of non-prescription drugs. The announcement came Tuesday, one year after Rogers’ body was found decomposing in a heavily wooded area of Colquitz River Park behind Tillicum Centre. “She was suffering the ongoing cumulative effects of drug use,” said Sgt. Dean Jantzen, though he wouldn’t say what drugs specifically. “The consensus of all investigators was she did not die at the hands of another person.” It took months for Saanich investigators to receive reports from the RCMP toxicology lab, but Jantzen said the conclusion is that it was an accidental death. Rogers, a sex-trade worker, was last seen June 3, 2011, but wasn’t reported missing until June 10. Her body was found

Suspect arrested twice on same night

Shannon Rogers two days later. Jantzen wouldn’t say whether the autopsy determined when she died, or if she died where her body was found. “That aspect (of the investigation) is the part that’s left undone.” Saanich police are consulting an outdoor forensic crime scene specialist with the RCMP to solve the unanswered questions. Jantzen wouldn’t comment

further on what the specialist would be looking into, or what those questions were, but police have maintained since early in the investigation that they were trying to figure out why she was in the park in the first place. Colquitz River Park is known as an area where homeless people set up temporary camps, but Jantzen said there was no evidence indicating Rogers was living there. Police are using the one-year anniversary of her death to appeal for more information. “Investigators are still looking for information on the days and hours leading up to her death, and would like for people to come forward,” Jantzen said. “If, for whatever reason, your personal circumstances at the time prohibited you from speaking to police, detectives are asking you to reconsider now.” Police are asking anyone with information to call a new Shannon Rogers tip line at 250475-4356. kslavin@saanichnews.com

On a quest to remember Merchant navy veteran seeking installation of Battle of Atlantic marker in Esquimalt park Erin McCracken News staff

At night, the lights on Bill Emberlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s merchant navy cargo ship were blacked out, to ward off attack from German u-boats skulking in the ocean. It took three harrowing weeks for convoys of ships to transport goods and personnel from Canada to Britain during the Second World War. The sun is now setting on the aging veterans of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s merchant navy fleet, as well as those military personnel who played a

vital role in the Battle of the Atlantic during the war. For that reason, Emberly, who joined the merchant navy as a teen, is on a quest to create a Battle of the Atlantic monument that would be unique to the Island. It would pay homage to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s civilian merchant navy, the Royal Canadian Navy vessels that escorted the merchant ships and Royal Canadian Air Force bomber planes that patrolled the skies above. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a six-year campaign, night and day, chased by submarines and everything else,â&#x20AC;? Emberly recently told Esquimalt council, when he requested to place the monument in the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memorial Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Britain was starving to death. The war could not have been won without that convoy fleet.â&#x20AC;? The black marble memorial, valued at $7,000, would not cost

Esquimalt taxpayers anything, Emberly said. He said he has people lined up to pay for the cairn and the installation of the monumentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s base. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost too late for even thinking about this,â&#x20AC;? said Emberly, 84. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The average age of the merchant seaman is 87 years.â&#x20AC;? Between 50 and 60 merchant seamen, on average, pass away every year, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a thing that we should never forget; there was 60,000 to 70,000 men who died (in the battle).â&#x20AC;? The monument would feature engraved images of a Canadian merchant navy cargo tanker, a navy corvette ship and an air force bomber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that we should be honouring all those who have helped make our life what it is today,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Tim Morrison. Esquimalt municipal staff have been asked to bring back a report

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.

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.

Questions surround man’s disappearance

Saanich senior fined for fatal airport crash 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 a 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 park-

ing lot and slowly drove down 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-yearold 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 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

The cement picnic table at the Victoria airport was rubble after a car smashed through it last July, killing one man. that Zerbin simply mistook the gas for the brake. “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.” said defence lawyer Dan Murphy. “She was deeply troubled by in the aftermath and remains deeply troubled by Mr. Sharma’s death.” 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. “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. Her lawyer said she would never seek a driver’s licence again. Zerbin 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. Zerbin is sincerely remorseful and had led an exemplary life, judge Blake said, but her 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

“We’re kind of at a crossroads now where there’s not much more we can do,” he said, adding that all hopes rest either on Gandza or someone who has seen him. It’s unlikely Gandza would return to the family’s home province of Manitoba, where his mother and two other older sisters live. “I would see him staying here on the Island, if that’s what he’s doing, or he’s popped over to the mainland and continued up the coastline,” Jarymy mused. “Are there other possibilities out there? Absolutely. Could he have bonked his head and succumbed (to his injuries)? Sure. Did he end it all? Possibly. “We have to think of all those avenues and keep them open until I don’t know when.” The family plans to put up more missing-person posters this summer. “We don’t want him to become a memory of ours. We want him to be part of our lives always,” Jarymy said. The longer her brother remains missing, the public will only come to remember

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

Victoria team owner John McLean announced Royal Athletic Park will host West Coast League baseball starting in June, 2013. The amateur league uses collegiate-level players from the U.S.A. and Canada and is in line with single-A baseball.

Travis Paterson/News staff

Victoria’s Adam O’Meara hopes to repeat as the Half Iron winner of the Victoria Triathlon at Elk Lake on Sunday. Last year O’Meara broke the coveted four-hour barrier, and did it as a newly anointed father. This year’s race falls on Father’s Day once again.

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

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.

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.

Ralph Newton-White invites people to a tea Saturday that will help children in Myanmar.

Tea time gives back to orphans, lepers

THE HARD SURFACE

FLOORING

OrphanAsia hosts fundraiser Erin McCracken News staff

Ralph Newton-White’s thoughts are always miles away, but not because he’s a daydreamer. The Victoria resident has dedicated his retirement years to helping the most vulnerable of people – lepers and young orphans – in a country ruled by a dictatorship. “I decided I wanted to help where there was the most need, because they were as poor as any country in the world,” said Newton-White, who has been to the southeast Asian country of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) more than a dozen times since the mid-1990s. “They needed help and they weren’t getting it.” He has since mobilized a passionate group of people who help by raising funds and travelling to the beleaguered nation to provide people with the essentials needed for their very survival: pipes for water, food and walking canes for the blind, among other humanitarian supplies. The next step for Newton-White’s Victoria-based OrphanAsia Society will be hosting a fundraiser tea that will mark the 67th birthday of Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The leader, who won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, was released after almost two decades of house arrest in late 2010. Her pro-democracy work is also helping to chip away at the suffering in Myanmar, Newton-White said. He is also passionate about reaching out to those, like the lepers, who are shunned by the rest of society, and the children who are growing up without parents. Newton-White says it’s been heartbreaking over the years to see so much suffering. “Sometimes, not always though, (the orphans) will have disappeared and other children have taken their place. It’s very said. That’s true of all those places.” That only fuels his need to help. “I just love the children, and the people that we help are so nice.” The birthday tea happens Saturday (June 19), from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at St. John the Divine church hall, 925 Balmoral Rd. Tickets are $10 and must be purchased in advance by calling 250-595-2335. For details, visit orphanasia.com, call 250-5952335 or email orphanasia@gmail.com. emccracken@vicnews.com

Beginning June 17, Country Grocer will use signs, shelf displays, stickers, brochures and other printed material to help customers at their stores learn more about Canadian food products and help them find these products on the store shelves. The promotional event will also be featured in store flyers and online. The initiative has been expanded after a successful 2011 pilot project showed shoppers were significantly more likely to buy Canadian products if they could easily identify them. Learn more at www. eatcanadian.ca. Kilshaws Auctions’ owner Alison Ross is joining the TV show Pawnathon Canada, on which Canadians showcase their prized heirlooms, antiques and memorabilia for a chance to cut a cash deal with the best dealers on TV – the Pawn Masters. Each episode features Canadians looking to share the history of their personal treasures – from historical Canadian art pieces to celebrity memorabilia – and potentially sell them for cash.

West Vancouver Centennial car show features 100-year-old electric vehicle Denny Bromley was the right enthusiast to plan the vintage car show to be part of the celebrations for West Vancouver’s 100th birthday party. The affluent seaside community of 45,000 ALYN EDWARDS residents across from CLASSIC downtown Vancouver RIDES was incorporated in March 1912. Automobile and marine transportation played an important role in the community as it grew from a cluster of waterfront tents, shacks and cottages with logging as its only industry. Bromley set the tone for the car show by driving his canary yellow modified 1923 Model T coupe and early 1950s Chevrolet pickup truck the few blocks from his West Vancouver home to the waterfront show. The vintage vehicles lined Argyle Street at Ambleside beside the restored building that was the original ticket office for the ferry to downtown Vancouver from West Vancouver. A feature display at the West Vancouver Centennial celebrations was a 100-year-old Detroit Electric. The battery-powered automobile built by the Anderson Car Company of Detroit uses an electric elevator motor for propulsion and is steered with a tiller. The electric vehicle suited for limited city driving is owned by the Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association and is on permanent display in BC Hydro’s museum at the 100-year-old Stave Falls Powerhouse near Mission.

This 100-year-old electric car was driven by Victoria’s Mrs. French until the 1950s.

The original cost of this car was more than a large house 100 years ago. Mrs. French, a doctor’s wife, owned the car. Later she lived in the Empress Hotel and regularly drove the car in downtown Victoria up to 1950. The Empress Hotel garage staff would keep the electric car charged and would bring it to the front door for her convenience. Lawrence Harrop, who also lives near

%

Ambleside, brought his restored 1929 Whippet and four of the whippet dogs that he breeds, trains and races. His rare roadster was found in pieces in Prince George and given a complete restoration. Whippet cars were built by the Willys-Overland Corporation in Toledo, Ohio and Toronto from 1926 to 1931 when the Depression caused an end to production. Continued on Pg. B2

Friday, June 15, 2012-

Harrop’s seldom-seen roadster is the desirable six cylinder model, the type of car that dashing young men dreamt of owning in West Vancouver before the Lion’s Gate Bridge opened in 1938 to link Vancouver to the North Shore and West Van. Before the easy bridge access, the only way to get cars to West Vancouver was by barge or over the original rickety Second Narrows Bridge into North Vancouver. Denny Bromley was the youngest member of West Vancouver’s first car club, started in the 1950s mainly by young hot rodders who were students at West Vancouver High School. He was 15 years old and didn’t have a driver’s license. But he used his paper route money to buy a 1928 Model A Ford roadster for $50. A number of names were tried out for the fledgling hot rod club. But members had to settle on the non-controversial West Vancouver Automobile Association after getting sponsorship from the local police department. “Four police officers were assigned to supervise the club’s activities and one would sit in our meetings held at the police station Sunday evenings,” Bromley recalls. “They regarded us as a service club and made sure we behaved ourselves on the roads and elsewhere.” Bromley recalls taking his father for a ride in a home-built 1932 Ford hot rod and making a turn from Marine Drive onto 25th St. “The passenger door flew open and I had forgotten that the seat hadn’t been bolted down,” he says. “My father was on his way out the door when I was able to grab his arm and save him.” That was Mr. Bromley’s last ride in a hot rod.

Motorcyclists host Ride for Wishes Poker Run

The Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers Victoria will host its motorcycle Ride for Wishes Poker Run June 24 to raise money for the Children’s Wish Foundation. Open to all motorcycle types, makes and models, registration starts at 9:30 a.m. at Western Speedway and finishes at Ma Miller’s Pub, where participants can participate in a “Scooter Bash” and other fun activities. Prizes will be announced at 3 p.m. Designed to promote safe motorcycle riding, the event aims even more importantly to grant a heart-felt wish to a child living in the Capital Region with a life-threatening illness. All the net proceeds from the event will go to the Children’s Wish Foundation, which grants wishes to children with high-risk, lifethreatening illnesses. Foundation staff and volunteers work to maintain the highest quality of service to the wish families, with attention to the smallest details to ensure the total satisfaction of each and every wish child. All money donated to the Children’s Wish Foundation will stay on Vancouver Island. For more information, http://www. facebook.com/events/354841384544957/
