LRB ruling in favour of both teachers, employers BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Teachers are pleased with last week’s Labour Relations Board decision that said the union can continue directing teachers not to participate in extra-curricular activities. The ruling, released on Friday, stated that activities such as coach-

ing, instructing or supervising student performances, sports teams, clubs or field trips, or attending graduation or awards ceremonies – when these activities are not related to a course or undertaken for marks – are voluntary and extra-curricular. It also stated that the B.C. Teachers’ Federation must not tell members to withdraw from activities that are

required of teachers such as schoolbased team meetings, parent-teacher interviews, district committee meetings and Education Ministry initiatives. Teachers also have the right to participate minimally in meetings with principals and other administrators. ◆ See ‘TEACHERS’ /3

Nanaimo-Alberni Conservative MP James Lunney says further review is needed before one Canadian Coast Guard base and three communication centres, particularly the marine communications traffic services base in Ucluelet, are cut from federal funding. Lunney made the comments to Nanaimo’s Wolf radio station on Thursday, adding he is concerned about his government’s plans for the closures. Lunney has been a strong supporter for coast guard services since first elected in 2000. He criticized the Liberal government in 2001 for cutting coast guard services at the time, arguing then they were an important asset in fighting terrorism. LUNNEY “I’ve asked for a hold to be put on those changes because I’m particularly concerned about the changes out [MCTS Tofino],” Lunney told the Wolf. “Because that monitors all the traffic coming into one of the busiest traffic lanes on the coast.” Lunney added that pulling 25 good jobs out of a small community creates problems for his constituents, and that the current location is the best to safeguard marine traffic along the coast. “I think some of the decisions may have come from bureaucrats in Ottawa and we need a little more reflection,” he said. The changes were outlined as part of the cuts made in Bill C-38, the federal budget. In all, 10 of 22 coast guard communication centres across the country are scheduled to be closed over the next three years, along with the base in Vancouver’s English Bay. ◆ See ‘BASE’ ‘ /4

Container system passes sea trials at Duke Point facility

TTeachers right to withdraw voluntary work gets board OK

BY TOBY GORMAN

◆ From /1 The ruling is in response to an application filed by the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association last month asking for a declaration that the BCTF and its members have authorized and are participating in an illegal strike. In April, teachers voted in favour of a resistance strategy to Bill 22 that includes a withdrawal from voluntary activities. The employers’ association felt optional duties such as coaching sports teams and overseeing school clubs are normally performed by teachers at their individual discretion and a direction for all teachers to cease constitutes a strike. It also argued that the BCTF service withdrawal captures duties that are required of teachers, which the LRB agreed with. Derek DeGear, president of the Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association, said he’s pleased that the LRB has reinforced that teachers have the right to withdraw voluntary services. “It’s going to bode well for volunteer work down the road knowing that teachers can do volunteer work and then step back if need be,” he said. Melanie Joy, employers’ association board chairwoman, said if school districts are in the same position in September with respect to the teacher action plan, the ruling provides some clarification on what can be expected and it ensures consistency.

The project, which started in January, is designed to teach youth facing difficult challenges life skills, a way to connect with their community and build a more positive perception of youth.

RDN homeless initiative receives cash infusion

I

GRANT GOES to Parksville, Nanaimo programs. BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Initiatives addressing homelessness in the Regional District of Nanaimo could get a cash infusion this year through a grant from the Vancouver Island Health Authority. For the past three years, the health authority has given one-time grants to the Regional District of Nanaimo for projects to end homelessness. “Adequate and safe housing for those who are homeless or at-risk for homelessness is a key first step in providing individuals with health, mental health and or addictions services,” said Don Hubbard, VIHA board chairman, in a press release.

reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

In 2011, the RDN received $130,000, which was not distributed at the time. In 2012 it received $340,000. Directors recommend that 60 per cent of the $470,000 be split between Nanaimo and Parksville. Nanaimo will receive about $196,000 and Parksville will receive $86,000 for 201213 projects. The remaining money will go into a reserve fund for future projects. Paul Thorkelsson, general manager of development services, said the recommendation to put money into a reserve is because there is no assurance that funding will be ongoing. In 2010, the RDN received $100,000, which was divided between Nanaimo and Parksville based on population. Parksville used the money for a homelessness count and the city’s emergency shelter. Nanaimo received a larger allotment, which was

given to the Working Group on Homelessness, Canadian Mental Health Association and the cold weather shelter operated by the First Unitarian Fellowship. Jo h n H o r n , C i t y o f Nanaimo social planner, said the money is used to address the concrete needs of the homeless. “Last time around the impact was pretty significant because it allowed the cold weather shelter to open up seven nights a week,” he said. The Working Group hosted a number of dinners that enabled people to eat and participate in a social event, which created a sense of community. If the RDN board approves the committee of the whole recommendation, Horn said Nanaimo would put out a request for proposals from organizations to distribute the money. reporter3@nanaimobulletin.com

The Nanaimo Port Authority and its facilities operating manager, DP World, completed successful trials of short sea shipping of containers last week, the first project of its kind at the Duke Point facility. The two parties, who signed a three-year agreement in January, targeted barging containers to the Lower Mainland as one of its projects to increase diversification and efficiency of Nanaimo’s port services. Doug Peterson, port manager of marketing and sales, said the trial of loading and off-loading the barge went well, and the service will add another dimension for Vancouver Island clients looking to ship goods to the Lower Mainland. “It was a trial shipment to see how it would go in utilizing our container crane at Duke Point,” he said. “Both ourselves and DP World are committed to the continuation of this short sea shipping, which is the movement of cargo in a much more efficient and environmentally sensitive way.” Historically in Nanaimo, cargo has been moved through the roll-on, roll-off process, either by B.C. Ferries or Seaspan Marine. The new lift-on, lift-off capacity provides more efficient cargo transfer by eliminating the middle reloading step, allowing customers to directly receive their containers and ship them overseas.

The process reduces the risk of damage to containers, creates employment at the port and helps the environment by taking trucks off the road. Kerry Lige, DP World spokesman, said the service fills a growing demand on the Island. “There is limited ability to get traffic back and forth between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland so what this does is provide what we believe is a very cost effective, very efficient process to get cargo to Vancouver and ultimately on its way to international destinations,” he said. Initially, the new service will run on a weekly basis. The barge, currently being modified for its new task, will be able to carry about 140 marine containers at a time. Lige said DP World and the Nanaimo Port Authority will host an open house at the end of June to showcase the new service, which is expected to begin at the end of July. DP World operates 60 deep sea terminals worldwide, including general cargo and container handling facilities, as well as cruise ship terminals, including Nanaimo’s. Until now, Vancouver Island was one of the world’s highest population, non-road connected islands without lift-on, lift-off container ter minal facilities. Peterson said short sea shipping will ensure greater connectivity for trade to and from Vancouver Island. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Base closure draws criticism ◆ From /1 Closing the base has drawn the most fire from critics, as it is arguably one of the busiest in Canada and boaters will, if it is closed, have to rely on help from the next closest base in Richmond, more than 20 minutes away. Coast guard isn’t Lunney’s only subject he feels passionate about. He has also argued strongly in favour of

natural health products and fighting to eliminate clostridium difficile in hospitals. Lunney was in transit from Ottawa to Nanaimo Friday, one day after participating in a marathon 23 hours in the House voting on the budget. Just hours before that session, Lunney was in the House for 12 hours fulfilling his required House duty. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Doctors happy with deal at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, said the province seems to be targeting money at programs intended to help patients access the right care. “What I like about this agreement is it looks like it’s patientfocused,� he said. “Anything that allows us to provide highquality care is good. I see the tone of this as being very positive.� Digney said the investment is good news in tough economic times and he’s hoping that this bodes well for separate negotiations around ER staffing. He is seeking about 10 more physician hours per day to cover the increase in patients over the past couple years. Dr. Gerry Vaughan, a physician at the Wellington Medical Clinic and vice-president of the Nanaimo Division of Family Practice, said he’s relieved a deal was reached, although now it will have to be ratified by members. The purpose of the division is to identify gaps in the continuum of primary care and work with partners to address these gaps and Vaughan said the new money contained in the agreement could help the division and its partners achieve health-care goals. “We hope the money will be something that divisions can access,� he said.

BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Some Nanaimo physicians are satisfied with the tentative agreement reached last week between the B.C. Medical Association and the province. The proposed Physician Master Agreement, which must now be ratified by doctors provincewide over the next month and a half, provides targeted funding for initiatives in four areas: improving patient access to family physicians, enhancing care for patients with chronic conditions, increasing patient access to doctors in rural areas and improving recruitment and retention of specialists in B.C. It includes $90 million in new money over two years, which covers a modest increase in the fee schedule and initiatives to improve services to patients, such as $20 million for specialist recruitment and retention, $10 million to expand physician services in remote communities and $18 million for improvements to primary care. An estimated $10 million in savings through an agreement to review lab costs will bring the total spent on new services and fees to $100 million. Funding levels for years three and four of the agreement have not been set.

“

What I like about this agreement is it looks like it’s patient-focused. I see the tone as very positive.

Dr. Patricia Mark, a physician at the Sow’s Ear Medical Clinic in Lantzville, said her understanding is the fee increase amounts to about half a per cent for family doctors. “We weren’t asking for a big pay rise,� she said. “These are hard economic times. We have got to be fiscally responsible. They do put in initiatives to help us.� Initiatives such as recruiting specialists have had special funding on and off in the past and are complex issues, said Mark. There are a few areas where Nanaimo could use some more specialists, although the city does not have the same recruitment problems seen in rural areas, she said. Dr. Drew Digney, ER site chief

B.C. drivers tested for alcohol, drugs BY TOM FLETCHER BLACK PRESS

Roadside surveys are set to begin around the province this month to continue a research project that tests for marijuana, cocaine and other drugs as well as alco-

hol use by drivers. The B.C. gover nment is spending up to $250,000 for the seventh survey of its kind in the province, part of a national program run by the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. Previous surveys have

shown that in random samples, about 10 per cent of drivers test positive for alcohol and seven to eight per cent have a detectable level of drugs in their systems. This year’s survey is being done in the same communities as

the last one in 2010: Vancouver, Saanich, Abbotsford, Prince George and Kelowna. The roadside surveys are supervised by police and use handheld breathalyzers, but they are for information only and won’t result in charges or

suspensions. Drivers are asked to voluntarily and confidentially answer questions, provide a breath sample and also a saliva sample using a plastic stick with an absorbent pad on the end. Saliva samples are sent for lab analysis to detect marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other opiates, amphetamines and common sedatives. The test doesn’t deter mine if the driver was impaired by drugs, but only if there is a level detectable by the lab test. Ottawa passed legislation in 2008 to give police authority to demand physical sobriety tests and collect blood, urine or saliva samples for drug testing, but no roadside test or legal limits currently exist for drug impairment. B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said police do have options. “Police can issue a 24-hour prohibition at the roadside if they suspect drug impairment,” Bond said. “They can also take the driver into custody, so trained, certified police officers can conduct a very accurate drug recognition and evaluation exam and ask for blood tests to support Criminal Code charges.” The surveys found that while alcohol use increases late at night and on weekends, drug use by drivers is more consistently found at all times and days. The surveys were extended to Prince George and Kelowna for the first time in 2010, and the survey company found drivers more likely to agree to the interview and samples than those in the Lower Mainland. Of the 2,480 vehicles selected for testing in 2010, 86 per cent of drivers provided a breath sample and 71 per cent agreed to give a sample of oral fluid. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

They are very open people.” Goodman said Canada has to fight somewhere and Afghanistan is where the enemy is at the moment. “The Afghans, they are taking their licks,” he said. “They’re a fighting force. They lose soldiers on a daily basis, but they’re proud and they understand that the fight they’re fighting here, in a way, is for the world.” Goodman wanted to see the world after graduating from Nanaimo District Secondary School in 1989, but also wanted a good education. He was in college, contemplating starting an engineering degree program when he thought of joining the military. He started training at Victoria’s Royal Roads Military Academy in 1991. The military offered the chance to see the world, but not all the brightest spots. Bosnia, Haiti and Afghanistan, Goodman said, are all beautiful countries, but not exactly tourist destinations. But he has seen at least 20 countries and territories, including Wake Island in the Pacific. There is added risk to working in Afghanistan, but Goodman is confident in the Canadian military’s professionalism and unwillingness to take unnecessary risks. “Is there risk? There’s always risk, whether that’s crossing the street in Ottawa, Ont., or crossing the street in Kabul, Afghanistan,” he said. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo teen arrested following robbery of drugs, property at knife point BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo RCMP arrested a 13-year-old male after he allegedly held up a man at knife point for his marijuana and other property.

The robbery happened Friday about 8 p.m. at a home on Norwell Drive. “According to the victim, the youths knocked on the door asking to come inside,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman.

“He allowed them in. They had some discussion and a knife was produced.” The suspects, both male, ages 13 and 14, took a scale, a Sony PlayStation, some cash and marijuana before fleeing.

The victim, 25, was not injured in the robbery. Police responded with a K-9 unit, which arrested the 13-year-old on Wellesley Avenue. He is facing charges of one count of robbery and one count of breach of

probation from a previous offense. No charges are pending against the 14-year-old suspect. The breach of probation charge against the 13-yearold stems from his alleged

involvement in a robbery at a public beach at Long Lake that occurred at 3 p.m. on May 26, where three students from Germany were robbed at knife point by three suspects. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Bill required p p debate proper While the lumping together of numerous pieces of federal legislation in one giant omnibus bill may not be precedent-setting, there is fear that doing so threatens to reduce democracy to mere window dressing. Stephen Harper’s Conservative government, still relatively young in its first majority, reduced the level of debate on specific issues relating to everything from environmental protection to military spending to multiculturalism. No aspect of governmental operations was being spared. The concern is that sections of the bill pinpointed by hard-working MPs as troublesome – remember, the bill affects every ministry – could not possibly be given the time needed to discuss potential problems with implementation before regulations and budgets get put in place. It’s not just opposing MPs who were left scrambling by this tactic. Even Conservative MPs were forced to bone up on all aspects of the government’s budget legislation. Who’s got time for that? And how could we expect any of our elected representatives to be well-versed on even half of the legislation tabled? Meanwhile, Opposition and other MPs tabled 800 possible amendments to the bill, which no doubt caused further confusion and anxiety among this country’s lawmakers as the bill went through the debate process. The feds argued time is of the essence as they work to keep the 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.

But they’d better be doing the job we are paying them and our government to do; provide the education system taxpayers – who are their actual employers – have paid for. It’s high time British Columbians demanded full value for their money and demand a stop to the shameless waste of shovelling money into endless disputes and ever upward-spiralling wages and benefits costs. Schools, hospitals, fire departments, highways, police departments and other publicly-funded facilities and agencies are the property of the people who pay for them and not the property of government and special interest groups.

Gas price reflects other costs To the Editor, Re: Oil companies gouge customers, Letters, June 16. I can certainly understand the frustration of the writer and many others. I’m sure that we always seem to be getting gouged at the pumps. I’m not saying it cannot happen, but as a past commodity trader who still likes to watch these things, I believe this is not the case. Unfortunately, the crude oil prices that we see quoted every night on the news does not always correlate with gas prices as closely as we would like. Ultimately, in the end, the price of a barrel of oil will determine how gas is priced, but there are many other considerations. First, it usually takes about six weeks or more for oil-price changes to work their way through the distribution system to the gas pump. As crude oil prices have fallen about $20 per barrel in a short period of time, we have not yet seen the benefit. Second, there are two types of crude oil traded in the international markets. The oil prices we hear in the media generally refers to West Texas Intermediate crude. This is “price settled” at Cushing, Okla., and traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange. This well known bench-

Price of gas at the pump reflects more than simply the cost per barrel for oil, letter writer says.

mark has lost its role and I would suggest has been replaced by Brent Crude. The world’s largest producer, Saudi Arabia, stopped using WTI as a benchmark in 2009. Brent Crude seems to be the real international benchmark as two-thirds of the oil consumed in North America is Brent, and twothirds of international crude is priced to Brent. The historical spread between Brent and WTI is typically a $1 to $3 premium, but over the last year this spread rose sharply to

almost $20, largely in part to strong imports from China and speculative buying on Middle East concerns. Brent prices have come down along with WTI, but still trades at about a $13 premium. Last of all, refining production has different pricing mechanisms as we move from east to west. The West Coast switches to a more expensive fuel blend in summer to fight pollution, but a fire at the BP refinery in Blaine, Wash. and maintenance work at

several California refineries has also led to a squeeze in wholesale gas prices. A Department of Energy report showed gasoline supplies in California are down more than 20 per cent from a year ago and haven’t been this low since May of 1992. Other considerations would be refinery margins and currency fluctuations. Just be glad our Canadian dollar is not at 80 cents instead of close to par, then we would really be complaining.

Readers respond: p Feedback on news items Working together best for students To the Editor, Re: Cowichan makes students a priority, Letters, June 16. Kip Wood is wrong when he suggests that the Nanaimo/Ladysmith board of education made cuts to programs and services in its 2012-13 operating budget. We passed a balanced budget without cuts. The board did this thanks to a combination of good management (the work of the “suits” as Wood names them) and the funding protection of the Ministry of Education. While the funding protection is welcome and helpful, it is important that a new funding model be developed in the public education system in British Columbia. The board has also received more than $1.4 million through the Learning Improvement Fund. This money was made available thanks to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation successful challenge of Bill 28, the oddly titled Public Education Flexibility and Choice Act. This money is to be spent on hiring more teachers

and education assistants. We hope we can improve student achievement in our district by providing more improved support for teachers in our schools. All teachers hired through this program will be based in schools. Wood’s comments demonstrate part of the problem facing public education. During the past year, he and his colleagues have abandoned respectful and constructive discourse with district boards and administrators. I hope this pattern will change and we will be able to work together in the best interests of the students in the district. The recent decision of teachers to now participate in the district strategic plan consultations is one step in that direction. Jamie Brennan board chairman Nanaimo school district

Onus on city council to be transparent To the Editor, Re: Public needs to participate, Opinion, June 14. In the editorial, the author discusses transparency and

public participation at city hall. It makes a case that the public may be the author of its own blindness as we pay too little attention. It argues that “Council can only be truly transparent if the public consistently shows interest.” I would argue that the public can only truly show interest when it is sufficiently informed to participate. Our problem is that we are left to acquiesce in the absence of the ability to do otherwise. While I am first to point to the progress which the city has made in making information open to the public through its website, there are still miles to go before we can afford to sleep. Agendas for council meetings appear only two business days ahead of decisions; hardly time for council to be able to soberly consider the issues which are raised, let alone for the public to review and remonstrate. While bylaws must be passed in regular council meetings, most important issues of policy or finance are raised, discussed and

decided in council’s committee of the whole meetings which have not been available to the general public by video. Neither are they generally held in a location which can hold more than a handful of the public, nor are they held at times generally available to working people. Citizens need at least the possibility of reviewing these meetings online in video. In the absence of a video record, the public must await meeting minutes which are prepared during, or immediately following the meeting, for at least two weeks. Recognizing that minutes remain unofficial until adopted at a subsequent meeting, why should the unofficial results not be available in a timely manner? In these matters timing is everything. The bum’s rush might be convenient, but it breeds neither trust nor participation. Being informed might not be a sufficient condition to induce public attention to public affairs, but it is a necessary one. Ron Bolin Nanaimo

Nanaimo Scooter Safety Rally

Summer is the start of the outdoor season in B.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; backyard barbecues, golfing with buddies, trips to the beach or hanging out on a patio. Many of these events include the consumption of alcohol and the summer months see an increase in vehicle crashes caused by impaired drivers. T h e B C A A Ro a d Safety Foundation has a message â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if you consume alcohol or drugs do not get behind the steering wheel of a vehicle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is unacceptable that on average two people die each week in our province due to impaired drivers,â&#x20AC;? said Allan Lamb, foundation president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is also unacceptable that 4,400 alcohol-related collisions are reported each year. It is imperative that those numbers go down significantly. We as a community are responsible for bringing an end to impaired driving.â&#x20AC;? T he bulk of the responsibility is the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, but it is also the responsibility of hosts, friends and family not to let an individual drive a vehicle if they are suspected of being impaired. More information is available at www.bcaa roadsafety.com.

ROTARY DONATION brings Hospice House total to $450,000.

Nanaimo Community Hospiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Expand the Heart of Hospice fundraising campaign has reached the halfway point following a donation of $25,000 from the Rotary Club of Nanaimo. The donation leaves $450,000 left to raise toward the $900,000 goal to purchase and renovate a new Hospice House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More and more people turn to Hospice each year and we are in urgent need of a new facility,â&#x20AC;? said Karen Boudreau, campaign chairwoman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope that individuals, local companies and organizations will make a donation to buy a new Hospice House that will serve our community

well into the future.â&#x20AC;? The funds come from Rotaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual book sale, where members spend countless hours collecting, sorting and storing books for the event held at Nanaimo North Town Centre every year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the single largest donation our club has given in its 92-year history in Nanaimo,â&#x20AC;? said Dave Hammond, Rotary Club of Nanaimo president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rotary is all about building stronger communities and Hospice is all about supporting people in our community when they need it most.â&#x20AC;? Hospice has outgrown its present location and must move as the demand for services continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. To donate, please call 250-7588857, visit www.nanaimohospice. com, or stop by Hospice House at 1729 Boundary Ave.

Long locks made into cancer wigs

I

YOUNGSTER GOES three years without a hair cut to help.

Three years ago, six-year-old Morgan Gaudet of Nanaimo came home from school and announced to her mother, Jodi, she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to cut her hair again. She had decided to grow it long so she could give it to someone who needed it.

That Morgan wanted to help someone didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise her mother. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She always had a cause going â&#x20AC;&#x201C; earthquake relief for Haiti, Jump Rope for Heart â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but this was a new one,â&#x20AC;? said Jodi. Now nine-years-old, Morgan decided the time had come to cut her hair. The recipient would be Wigs for Kids B.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted my hair to be used to make a wig for a child who

lost their hair because they have cancer,â&#x20AC;? said Morgan. For two weeks before she got her hair cut, and two weeks after, she fundraised. The family sent e-mails and Facebook messages to everyone they knew, and no one could come into the house without being â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hit upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for a donation. The persistence paid off with $629 donated along with the braids of hair. Wigs for Kids B.C. provides

custom-fitted human-hair wigs for B.C. children who have lost their hair due to cancer or other serious illnesses. It also raises money to provide essential drugs and supplies that are not covered by any government agency or program. For more information on Wigs for Kids, please go to www.wigsforkidsbc.com or e-mail info@wigsforkidsbc. com.

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 Nanaimo News Bulletin

Differing mediums share artistic vision Two artists working different mediums have the same gift at finding new ways to depict West Coast imagery. Brian Buckerell, one of Vancouver Island’s top plein air painters, and Gittan Klemetsrud, a photographer, are featured at Gallery 223 next week. Buckerell won numerous awards for not only his plein air paintings but also his in studio pieces as well, which are featured in collections across North America and Europe. Buckerell paints full time after being elected into membership of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Landscape Artists International and the Society of Canadian Artists. Complementing Buckerell’s landscape paintings are the photographs of Klemetsrud. She fell in love with the scenery of Vancouver Island after coming to Canada from Sweden in her 20s. She took up photography and over time developed a keen sense for detail and how particular moments or scenes are captured, making her photographs truly unique. The artists’ work will be on display at the gallery June 23-29. Both artists will be on hand for the opening on Saturday and Sunday (June 23-24), 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. – the same weekend as Nanaimo Artwalk. Buckerell dons his smock and provides a demonstration of his painting skills during the opening weekend. For more information, please call 250-741-1188 or visit www.gallery223.ca.

Twenty-year gap separates kids’ album releases BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

Brian Buckerell captures the landscape as he sees it while painting en plein air. His paintings hang alongside the photos of Gittan Klemetsrud at Gallery 223 next week.

Two decades is longevity, in any genre of music. Bill Perison releases a new album of children’s music 22 years after his song Coconut Tree became popular with the toddler crowd. “It still sells,” Perison said of that first song. “It’s cool to write something that’s old but still sounds good.” It took 22 years to get to the next album because of another project – raising his own children. Perison grew up in Nanaimo, attending Nanaimo District Secondary School and one year at Malaspina University-College (now VancouPERISON ver Island University) before leaving to pursue music as a career. He returned 15 years ago to raise his sons. “It’s been a really good place to raise a family,” he said. He continued to play music and develop his skills, but he also learned more about interacting with kids while raising his own. “We get a bit pedantic with kids’ stuff,” Perison said. “We should be teaching by example rather than dictating.” He uses imagery in the songs, aiming to inspire children – with the odd joke thrown in that only the parents will understand. “Everyone who listens will have a different image,” he said. ◆ See ‘ALBUM’ M /22

Juniors trade six in fire sale

I

ourself in a buying position…” said Bill Bestwick, Timbermen director of operations. “I think it was the right thing to do given our circumstance and the situation we found ourself in.” The Timber men (2-13-1) were a long shot to make the postseason, but had won two of their four games before the trades. “I felt that our team was turning the corner and felt that the focus at Wednesday night’s practice was much better,” said Dale Nicks, Timbermen coach. “So it was a shock at first, Thursday night.” He and his assistant coaches weren’t consulted on the deals. “Upper management called me Thursday night to tell me what had transpired and I wasn’t part of that decision making,” said Nicks. Bestwick said once it became clear the team wasn’t going to make the playoffs, the operations staff made the decision to consider moving players. “The coaching staff was informed that we were going to be speaking with other teams about players on our team,” Bestwick said. “Were they participating in whether they thought it was a good trade or a bad trade? No.” ◆ See ‘JUNIOR’ /30

New Westminster Salmonbellies player Jeff Sproule, left, Nanaimo Timbermen player Joel Henry and others try to track down a loose ball during Sunday’s Western Lacrosse Association game at Frank Crane Arena.

Nanaimo makes franchise history, beats New West BY GREG SAKAKI

Conway was in on every single Timbermen goal, finishing with 10 points. Cody Bremner also had a hat trick, Scott Ranger had two goals and two assists and other scorers were Blake Kenny and Cayle Ratcliff. Goalie Zak Boychuk made 44 saves in the victory. Coach Art Webster praised his goalie, and said the defence stayed “packed tight” and also took away New West’s transition game. “We stuck with our game plan all the way through and it worked out in our favour,” Webster said. Defender Chris O’Dougherty said the T-men were playing fine, even when they were trailing, and they knew they just needed to keep doing

THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Timbermen came up with one of the most impressive feats in franchise history – they defeated the New Westminster Salmonbellies. Never before had the city’s senior A lacrosse team won a regular-season game against the ’Bellies, but on Sunday at Frank Crane Arena the Coastal Windows Timbermen outscored the visitors 5-1 in the third period to seal the 10-8 victory. “It’s tough to win against them and it’s a great job by everybody,” said Cory Conway, T-men forward. “It definitely feels good to win that one.”

what they were doing. “When we stay together, we can do anything, and it shows,” he said. “We beat a great team in New West and I think it’s a show of good things to come.” GAME ON … The only other time the current Timbermen franchise won against the Salmonbellies was in a playoff game Aug. 8, 2007 in New Westminster when they prevailed 16-14 … The next game for the T-men (3-3-1) is Sunday (June 24) on the road against the Maple Ridge Burrards. Next home action is June 30 versus the Coquitlam Adanacs … This article was first posted online late Sunday night. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The junior A Nanaimo Timbermen conceded that 2012 isn’t their year. The city’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League team traded away most of its best players last week. Nanaimo traded three of its top four goal scorers, its No. 1 goalie and two others in trades with the Victoria Shamrocks, Coquitlam Adanacs and Delta Islanders. Graduating veteran Paul Brebber, former captain Glenn Foley and the playing rights to Ethan Garland were moved to the Shamrocks in exchange for Nick Sanderson, Freddie Bathurst-Hunt and future considerations. Leading scorer Corey Shires was shipped to the Adanacs for future considerations and goalie Pete Dubenski and top goal-getter Mitch Parker are headed to the Islanders, also for futures. Shires, Parker and Dubenski are rental players who will be returned to the T-men for the 2013 season. “I would rather be a buyer than a seller, but we didn’t find

In the first game pitcher Luke Skingle earned the win, getting offence from Ben Dunbar, who was

Olympic heroes getting sendoff The region’s Olympians are preparing to go up against the best in the world, and maybe Nanaimo can help give them an Olympic-sized sendoff. PacificSport, a provincial sports body, is organizing an event called Liftoff to London this Thursday (June 21) at Diana Krall Plaza. Current and former Olympic and Paralympic athletes will be there to meet fans, and people will be encouraged to scrawl well-wishes on Canadian flags that will be sent to London. Nanaimo swimmer Tommy Gossland and Nanoose high jumper Mike Mason will be competing in the Olympics and Nanaimo rower Tony Theriault and Nanoose wheelchair racer Michelle Stilwell will be competing at the Paralympic Games. Other mid-Island athletes going to London are Comox distance runner Cam Levins, Parksville wheelchair rugby player Trevor Hirschfield and Duncan wheelchair basketball player Richard Peter. “These athletes have accomplished so much already and are such an inspiration to our society especially in their local towns,” said Drew Cooper, PacificSport GM, in a press release. Thursday’s event starts at 11 a.m.

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo Timbermen player Nick Sanderson, left, is checked by Burnaby Lakers opponent Brendan Shea during Saturday’s junior A lacrosse game at Frank Crane Arena. Sanderson was acquired in a trade earlier in the week.

Junior A lacrosse ‘is a business’

◆ From /29 Bestwick said he feels like the trades were all good trades. A veteran like Brebber, he said, deserves a chance for one more playoff run. Foley had been injured all spring and Garland had been on the holdout list. As for Shires, Parker and Dubenski, they might come back next year as better players. “They’re going to get the opportunity to play in post-season play and one of these kids is going to win a B.C. championship, I would suspect,” Bestwick said. Sporting a new-look lineup Saturday at Frank Crane Arena, the Timbermen were edged 7-6 by the Burnaby Lakers. The next day against the tough Adanacs on the road, the T-men were hammered 18-3. Even with so much talent now traded away, Nicks said the T-men will be trying to win games. “It’s a business, and I’ve learned that now…” said the coach. “Our goal is to win and it’s got to be that because this is a business and if

we’re not winning, we’re not putting people in the stands and the team’s not making money.” Team captain Bryan Dougan felt like the team was still in the playoff hunt at the time of the trades. “We were all kind of shocked by it, we didn’t really see it coming…” he said. “We can make do with what we’ve got. We’re still going to keep battling night in and night out. Just keep playing for the boys in the dressing room. Keep playing for the logo on our jersey.” LACROSSE TALK … In Saturday’s loss to the Lakers, Macgregor Johnston scored two goals and Ryan Nicks, Brett Fleming, Tyson Roe and Stu Mills were the other scorers. Cory Mayzes made 45 saves in defeat. On Sunday Bryson Weberg, Ryan Hanna and Stu Mills scored for Nanaimo … Next game for the Timbermen is Saturday (June 23) when they host the Langley Thunder at 5 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. sports@nanaimobulletin.com
