Weighing in West Shore Parks and Recreation Society looks into switching to majority-rules model Kyle Wells News staff

Kyle Wells/News staff

Colwood resident Scott Lehr works out at the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre. The governance model for the West Shore Parks and Recreation Society, which manages the centre, is in question after a report was released suggesting a switch to majority rules.

Questions over the governance model for the West Shore Parks and Recreation Society are bringing up some old tensions and concerns from member municipalities. On June 13, a report requested from barrister and solicitor Christopher Nation was presented to the society’s board of directors. In the report, Nation recommends decisions related to budget and capital expenditures be changed from a unanimous vote to majority rules, weighted toward the financial input of voting members. The concern has been that smaller municipalities con- Inside tribute a minority of the funding but can veto projects from going ahead.

He described the governance debate as a “smokescreen” that prevents the board and owners from tackling the real issues. As the veto has hardly been used, he doesn’t see what the concern is.

How low can gas prices go? Gas prices cause busy Langford weekend Kyle Wells News staff

A gas price war in Langford this past weekend led to lineups of cars spilling out onto the street and prices as low as 102.9 cents per litre. Reportedly started by Costco, prices began to fall at Langford gas stations Friday afternoon. By 5 p.m. there was a line of cars out of the Chevron station at Goldstream Avenue and Veterans Memorial Parkway that was beginning to block traffic. And that was for gas priced at 117.9 cents per litre. Prices continued to fall over the weekend, as the traffic continued to rise with motorists trying to cash in on the cheap fuel. RCMP were called out to the Goldstream Avenue Chevron after getting complaints about cars blocking the street. But when police got there, traffic was getting through, said Corporal Raj Sandhu. It is a traffic violation to block a lane because cars are lining up to turn into a business, such as a gas station. Westshore Chamber of Commerce chief executive officer Dan Spinner said he can’t explain what starts the wars but that having the rush of business to Langford can’t be bad. Spinner jokingly wondered if people hadn’t gone a bit far to save a few bucks. “You gotta wonder about people, God bless them, would drive from Sidney to save $10 but spend $10 in gas,” Spinner said with a laugh. “I think it’s psychological. ... We feel so powerless around the price of gas when it hits the pump, this might be an expression of that lack of power.” We’re happy to have the business, I’m happy to see West Shore businesses be creative and competitive and that’s all good.” On Monday, the lowest price for gas in the region was at Costco, which was at 102.9 cents per litre, according to victoriagasprices.com. The Goldstream Avenue Chevron was back up to 139.9 cents per litre. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Hot days, fur coats don’t mix

Before Max Fossum leaves his dog in the car, he is sure to carefully assess the situation. “Put yourself in the car and think ‘how long could you withstand the heat with the windows rolled and no air conditioning?’” asked Fossum, a sergeant with the West Shore RCMP and a longtime dog owner. If Fossum leaves his lab Chelsea in the car, he makes sure there’s water in the vehicle, and that he parks in a shaded area. He’s also never gone too long. “But remember (even if you parked in the shade) the sun can change,” Fossum said. “We all love our dogs, (so) make sure your dog is safe.” And while most people are happy the warm weather finally looks like it’s going to stick around, Penny Stone is bracing for the worst. “I hate hot days for that reason,” said Stone, manager of the Victoria branch of the B.C. SPCA. “As soon as it’s a nice day, everybody’s happy it’s a nice day except for the SPCA. I just can’t believe people leave their dogs (in vehicles) in this kind of weather.” Heading into the weekend, temperatures are forecast in the 20 C range. But inside vehicles it will quickly soar to more than 30 C, Stone said, even if parked in the shade with the windows cracked open. Within five to 10 minutes of being left in a hot vehicle, dogs can become dehydrated, suffer heat stroke and even die, she said, adding it doesn’t

have to be hot outside for the temperatures inside to skyrocket. “If your dog doesn’t die, it could retain permanent brain damage,” she cautioned. “Think of sitting in your car in a fur coat in the sun.” Some pet owners don’t realize their dogs are only able to sweat by panting and through the pads on their feet, limiting their ability to cool down. “(Heat stroke) happens so fast,” Stone said. “The problem is people think that, ‘I’m just going to run in and get a loaf of bread.’” Staff with Victoria Animal Control Services, which operates in Victoria, Esquimalt and Oak Bay, responded to two dogs left in the enclosed bed of a pickup truck last month. “They were sweltering. They were in very poor shape,” said Ian Fraser, the company’s senior animal control officer. The cab was finally opened and the owner issued a $300 fine for failing to provide adequate ventilation and water to his pets, which were able to recover. “The animals had defecated inside the back of the truck, an obvious sign of stress,” said Fraser, who wouldn’t say where the truck was parked. With the onset of summer, he expects his team will become even busier. editor@goldstreamgazette.com - With files from Charla Huber and Erin McCracken

Video threatening police leads to arrest

Randall Garrison, MP

RCMP play cat and mouse with self-styled rapper

the Allandale gravel pit on Sooke Road, Brens took off running. The RCMP officers pursued with dogs into an area thick with bushes. “They did a track for two hours. It was an exhaustive dog track,� West Shore RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Max Fossum said. Police officers received cuts and scrapes, and came close a couple of times to grabbing Brens, who managed to get away. The next day, an off-duty West Shore RCMP officer went into a Goldstream Avenue barbershop for a haircut when he saw Brens, getting his own haircut and talking openly with the barber about the night before. The officer sat down to wait his turn and texted members back at the West Shore detachment. Brens was boasting about how he escaped from the cops and was showing off his cuts and scrapes. The on-duty officers didn’t get to the barber shop in time to arrest Brens, who has a history of resisting arrest. The off-duty officer decided it wouldn’t be safe to bring in Brens on his own without any

Kyle Wells News staff

A youth who posted a rap video on YouTube threatening police officers was finally arrested by West Shore RCMP after he gave police the slip on at least two previous occasions. Officers spotted 21-year-old Kenneth Brens near midnight on June 10. The West Shore resident had outstanding warrants for assault, causing bodily harm, uttering threats and intimidating the justice system. In April, Brens was arrested after RCMP became aware of a video in which Brens rapped about the Regional Crime Unit (RCU). In the video he threatens to torture and decapitate officers. Brens was arrested and initially released. However, a warrant was later issued to ensure Brens would appear in court. When police spotted him near

When RCMP went to the house, Brens once again tried to get away. He appeared ready to jump from two stories up before he saw that the house was surrounded. “It just shows, you can run for a while, through the bush and beat the dogs, and end up being arrested anyway,� Fossum said.

Keeping Langford in the fold has become the primary concern for the West Shore Parks and Recreation Society. While there is no plan for Langford to leave the current agreement, mayor Stew Young said the idea is on the table if that’s what it takes to get more recreation opportunities built in Langford. Ultimately, Young said, it will be the people of Langford who decide if they’ll continue with an agreement that sees them covering the bulk of funding but sharing representation on the board with other West Shore jurisdictions. “If there’s going to be roadblocks in place, we have to find another way to do it,” Young said. Langford has had to go out on its own to provide resi-

be recognized that Langford is an integral part of the society, especially financially, and that mass recreation investment in Langford completed apart from the West Shore Parks and Recreation is evidence of a municipality that is not entirely happy with the way things are run. “It would have been nice to still keep it in a regional context, as opposed to municipally done, but it will be as it is,” Hamilton said. That said, general consensus is that Langford is ill advised to walk away from what Hamilton estimates as about $40 million worth of assets. Even the smaller municipalities sympathize. Metchosin mayor John Rapps expressed concern that too much is being asked of Langford. “If the place were properly managed,” Rapp said, “if we were to address the losses that

Cynthia Day said that, ultimately, if the governance model is changed, and that drives away some smaller municipalities, that would not have the same impact of Langford opting out. “The partners who are likely to be driven away by the majority vote issue account for a very small percentage of the requisition,” Day said. “Far less (of an) impact to Colwood taxpayers than would be if one of the major funding partners were to choose to step away from the table.” news@goldstreamgazette.com

TV and Vision Eye care experts generally agree: watching television will not harm your eyes or vision if the TV room is lit properly and if you follow a few viewing tips. In fact, there is usually less strain involved in TV viewing than in doing close work such as sewing or reading. Watching TV for long stretches of time can leave your eyes fatigued and now that the monsoons have arrived, most of us are spending more time inside. Here are a few hints to help make TV viewing more comfortable. TV viewing tips: - Make sure your television set is properly installed and the antenna properly adjusted. - Place the set to avoid glare reflections from lamps, windows and other bright sources. - Adjust brightness and contrast controls to individual and/or viewer’s taste and comfort. - Have the set at approximately eye level. Avoid having to look up or down at the picture. - Avoid staring at the screen for lengthy periods Briefly look away from the picture, around the room or out the window. - Wear lenses prescribed for vision correction, if advised to do so by your eye care practitioner. - View from a distance of at least five times the width of the television screen. Some viewers, especially those over 50 years old, may find relief with special glasses for television viewing. Consult with your Optometrist if you find general vision discomfort or eye strain while watching TV.

“The main issue is not governance,” Ranns said. “There’s some pretty serious concerns there: Bear Mountain arena losing half a million a year, continued requisition increases almost more than double inflation rates, stuff like that. Those are the things we need to address.” For his part, Langford mayor Stew Young said a meeting of the mayors would be a waste of time. The governance model needs to be changed to a majority vote, Young said, adding the unanimous vote system has prevented any real development from taking place at the site. “If the governance is dysfunctional it’s damaging to the residents,” Young said. “The governance model has to change or probably you’ll see some drastic changes down there at Juan de Fuca. ... It never should have been put unanimous, that’s not democracy.” news@goldstreamgazette.com

Festival celebrates art and wine Colwood Rotary are inviting the public to the first ever Art and Wine Festival at Fort Rodd Hill this Saturday. From 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., about 35 artists will be displaying a wide variety of works on the grounds of the fort, accompanied by a wine garden that will feature the finest tipple from five local wineries. Money raised by the event will go towards the Rotary Picnic playground,

which is planned for West Shore Parks and Recreation. A substantial amount of money has already been raised but festival coordinator Mike Wedekind said a final push is needed to top off the funding and get construction started. The goal is to raise $20,000 at the festival. “We’re expecting to cater to people who like art,” Wedekind said.

Tickets for the festival are $30 advance or $35 at the gate and include eight, oneounce samples of wine. Family members under 19 get in free with the purchase of two tickets by family. The price of admission also includes a keepsake wine glass. There will be food for sale, including ice cream, mini donuts, grilled sausages and Greek food. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Ma Miller’s keeps its clothes on The controversy proved too much for a plan to convert a historic Langford Pub into the West Shore’s only strip club. On Monday, the operator of Ma Miller’s Pub told the Gazette that he had been evicted from the building. Dale Stephenson was less than halfway into a four-year lease to run the pub. The building’s owner, Tony Piga, did not return calls asking for comment. Stephenson cited poor sales and the need for new clientele as reasons to bring exotic entertainment into the West Shore on a regular basis. However, the plan was met with outrage by neighbours of the pub, many of whom signed online petitions to oppose the strip club. Stephenson chose not to comment on whether he would pursue legal action to try and reclaim some of the costs he incurred before being evicted. He did say he would “definitely not” ever get back into running a pub. editor@goldstream gazette.com

Metchosin legalizes detached suites Council votes to regulate some secondary suites Charla Huber News staff

Just because detached secondary suites have been legalized in Metchosin, it doesn’t mean all suites in the municipality are now officially legal. Metchosin council ended the debate on detached secondary suites by voting June 11 to legalize them. It marked the beginning of regulating detached suites in Metchosin, which must be registered to comply. As of Monday, municipal staff had yet to see a single applicant. “Now people have the opportunity to legalize and legitimize,� Mayor John Ranns said. The bylaw’s primary focus right now is on new construction. In the fall, council will begin to work on Phase 2, which will focus on enforcing the regulations for existing suites. “Just because you have (a detached suite), whether or not it conforms to the bylaw, it it still illegal do so without the land use,� said Coun. Bob Gramigna. “(Properties) with multiple detached suites is one of the issues.�

Make Your Home Safe for Independent Living Are you a low-income senior or a person with a disability who wants to live safely and independently in the comfort of your home? Do you have difficulty performing day-to-day activities? Does your home need to be adapted to meet your changing needs? If so, you may be eligible for financial assistance under the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program. Find out today if you are eligible and if you meet all of the requirements as a low-income homeowner or as a landlord applying on behalf of an eligible tenant.

To apply or learn more, visit www.bchousing.org/HAFI You can also contact BC Housing: Phone: 604-646-7055 Toll-free: 1-800-407-7757 (ext. 7055)

No population explosion expected Even with the legalization of detached suites, Mayor John Ranns said he doesn’t expect a population boom. Metchosin has been allowing secondary suites for 30 years. An attached suite can be a two-bedroom, but detached suites can be no larger than a one-bedroom. Homeowners are only allowed one suite, either located in the main dwelling or detached from it. Only homes on large lots can have a detached suite, but all homes can include a secondary suite. Even with dozens of illegal suites in Metchosin, Ranns is not surprised no one has stepped up to register. “This has been 20 years in the making,� Ranns said. “We know there have been illegal ones in the district.� East Sooke has only had three people register since the electoral area legalized detached suites two years ago. East Sooke’s bylaw is a lot more lenient than Metchosin’s and Ranns expects it will take some time before homeowners come forward.

“You have really strict zoning in Metchosin,� said Zachary Doeding, president of the Association of B.C. Land Owners and an East Sooke resident. The five-page bylaw has many criteria that homeowners must meet before a detached secondary suite is declared legal. Terms include that the size of the suite cannot be more than 70 square metres and it cannot exist on a property that already has a secondary suite. An accessory building, such as a barn, used as a detached secondary suite cannot be used simultaneously for any other purpose. A detached suite must also be within 15 metres of the principal dwelling. While East Sooke hasn’t had many detached suites registered, Doeding said legalizing the detached suites was a positive step for the community. “We need it because land is so expensive,� Doeding said. “The density is not overwhelming.� The decision to allow detached suites was made after extensive round table discussions, community surveys and a non-binding referendum during the last election. “We have done our best through this very long process,� Ranns said. reporter@goldstreamgazette.com

New program helps seniors, people with disabilities modify homes Would a new ramp, handrails or walk-in shower help you maintain your independence at home? BC Housing’s new Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program helps lowincome B.C. seniors and people with disabilities make home modiďŹ cations that will allow them to continue living at home. Through HAFI, homeowners and landlords with eligible tenants can apply for ďŹ nancial assistance of up to $20,000 for improvements that make their home more accessible and safe. The goal of the program is to enable people who have physical limitations to live at home longer. People’s physical needs change over time – sometimes, a small improvement to a home can make the difference between being able to live independently or not. Types of eligible projects include: ĂŁ +andrails in hallways or stairways, ĂŁ 5DPSVIRUHDVHRIDFFHVV ĂŁ (DV\WRUHDFKZRUNRUVWRUDJH  areas in the kitchen, ĂŁ /HYHUKDQGOHVRQGRRUV ĂŁ :DONLQVKRZHUVZLWKJUDE bars, and ĂŁ %DWKWXEJUDEEDUVDQGVHDWV The projects must be permanent and ďŹ xed to the home, although exceptions can be made for equipment that gives access to an existing part of the home (e.g. a bath lift). /DXQFKHGLQ-DQXDU\+$),

is funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia through the CanadaB.C. Affordable Housing Initiative. Through the HAFI SURJUDP million in grants or forgivable loans will be distributed to qualifying B.C. residents over the next three years. To qualify for assistance from HAFI, recipients must be a lowincome senior or person with a disability, a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant, and a B.C. resident. Someone in the household must have a permanent disability or loss of ability that makes it difďŹ cult to perform

day-to-day activities. As well, the total household income and assets must be below a certain limit. BC Housing can tell you the income and house value limits for your area when you apply. The program is open to both homeowners and those living in market rental accommodation where rents are at the low end of market levels; landlords must apply for improvements on behalf of eligible tenants.

Transit buying new buses Erin McCracken News staff

B.C. Transit has the green light to purchase two new conventional buses ahead of plans to review and possibly expand Greater Victoria’s transit service. The addition to the fleet for 2013-14, approved last week by the Victoria Regional Transit Commission, would potentially add 5,000 hours annually to the busing schedule. The buses will be ordered in

July, and will arrive as early as February 2013. Each will cost about $500,000. Commission members expressed discomfort about approving the purchase without knowing the full details of future service expansion plans. But those details won’t be available until information comes back from the upcoming service review for the region as well as from a three-year service and financial strategy, which will get underway this summer. Due to the time it takes to

acquire a new bus, Mike Davis, B.C. Transit chief operating officer said a delay in purchasing new buses would mean a delay in freeing up buses during rush hour. Through the development of a three-year service and financial strategy, B.C. Transit will look at creating a fare strategy, threeyear base budgets, expansion scenarios and related infrastructure investments. A draft report will be presented to the commission in September. emccracken@vicnews.com

Stolen laptop recovered through IP address West Shore RCMP recovered a laptop stolen from a Colwood home after the victim tracked down the IP address and discover its location. The laptop and a TV were stolen in a break and entry into the home of Leigh Garrod on Tuesday, June 5 on Marlene Drive. Later, while using an online file hosting service, Garrod noticed his account had been logged into after the theft. He traced the login and determined the Internet Protocol (IP) address, which can be used to identify a sitespecific server. “As soon as they open up the

computer and connect it to a wireless network somewhere, it identified where it was and I was able to see that,� Garrod said, about Dropbox, the service he used. “It’s pretty cool.� Garrod gave West Shore RCMP the IP address and they traced it back to a residence on Bellamy Road in Langford. After obtaining a search warrant, police went to the home and found the laptop. The TV was not there. Neighbours also noticed the original break-in and one even wrote down the licence plate number used by one of the suspects.

When police arrived to search the Bellamy Road home, one female was in the house at the time. Another resident was not home. Police are investigating how the laptop came to be in the house and whether any charges can be laid. “I’m pretty happy with the service from the police, I have to say,� Garrod said. Since January, there have been three unsubstantiated break and enters, eight confirmed break and enters and one home invasion in Colwood. There are no suspected connections. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Extra-curricular ruling pointless L

ast week’s Labour Relations Board ruling that B.C. teachers’ withdrawal of voluntary extra-curricular services such as coaching, band concert and graduation ceremony organization, and field trips did not constitute unlawful strike activity was not surprising. For the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association to ask the LRB to rule otherwise was patently ridiculous and showed how far out of touch with reality the provincial body is. Such “volunteer” activities by teachers have never been considered mandatory. Parents and administrators have come to expect them as a major part of the education and school experience for children. But the association was clearly out of line in targeting such action by the union. On the other hand, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation’s trumpeting of the decision – it also included an order to restart parent-teacher interviews and attend school-based team meetings, among other duties – shows the union is scrambling to maintain any kind of bargaining power in this lopsided labour negotiation. With the ordeal dragging on through the entire school year, and expected to continue once the 2012-13 year starts in September, as the two sides get back to bargaining, it seems the patience of everyone involved has worn thin. Since teachers were ordered back to work after a short-lived strike, many educators – as fed up and frustrated as parents – have found creative, if not defiant ways to do their jobs, and participate in voluntary activities despite being encouraged not to do so by the union. No one has won in this whole affair, not the province, not the public and most of all, not students. The end result is that teachers still feel undervalued, the B.C. government knows it has an unhappy education workforce and many families are mad at both sides for using their children as pawns in a labour stalemate. We hope the summer holidays provide a time for both sides in this dispute to cool off and seriously try to rethink how to achieve labour peace in difficult economic times. No one wants to go through it all again this fall.

GOLDSTREAM NEWS GAZETTE - Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Encouraging choosing work instead of welfare The B.C. government has taken some modest steps to tighten up the province’s income assistance system, and to encourage people to work when they are able to. With Premier Christy Clark swooping in to take credit, Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux unveiled changes that included fixing the worst mistake in B.C. Liberal policy. Cadieux acknowledged B.C. was the only province that clawed back all earnings from employable welfare recipients, and she announced that from now on they will be able to earn up to $200 a month without penalty. The exemption for disabled people is increased from $500 to $800 a month. Another important change is requiring welfare recipients to file income tax returns. People can now do temporary work when it comes along, report the income and take advantage of the various tax credits that come from participating in society instead of just living off it. Any experience earning money is valuable experience. With baby boomers starting to retire in

big numbers, the expected labour shortage has begun across Western Canada. And yet, increasing numbers of foreign workers are coming in to do farm and other work, while many young people are unemployed. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon took note of this during his budget preparations. Increasing numbers of young, employable people were applying Tom Fletcher for welfare in southB.C. Views ern B.C., while jobs go begging in the booming northeast. Falcon mused about setting up a program to provide training and plane fare for these people, an idea quickly dubbed “welfare air.” Another effort to get young people working is Jobfest, a rock-themed road show currently touring northern B.C. towns. It attracts young people with music and sou-

venirs such as drumsticks and guitar picks, and offers them skills assessment using sexy iPad apps and graphics that depict carpentry as cool. If Jobfest and welfare air sound a bit desperate, it’s because they are. They illustrate our society’s problem. We have a public school system where students pass whether they do the work or not. The culture assumes self-esteem is more important than achievement. The teachers’ union constantly sets an example that the way to get what you want is to stamp your feet and demand it from government. What do we expect young people to learn? And how easy is it for B.C. to slip into a Greece-like tailspin, where a majority expects to be carried on the backs of the shrinking minority who do productive work? Old-timers might recall when Mike Harcourt’s NDP government took over from the allegedly miserly Social Credit regime and raised welfare rates. They compounded that mistake by relaxing eligibility rules and making it easier for employable people to stay on welfare. After

a couple of years of this wealth redistribution, 10 per cent of the B.C. population was on welfare, with more piling on every day. Faced with the results of this staggering blunder, Harcourt lashed out at “cheats, deadbeats and varmints” scamming B.C. taxpayers and launched a crackdown on fraud. Later the NDP cut the basic rate for single employables to $500 a month. Today it stands at $610, and the NDP looks poised to repeat history. Surrey MLA Jagrup Brar did a month-long publicity stunt in January, living on welfare by wandering from shelter to food bank with TV cameras trailing behind. Brar would have been better off if welfare air had been available. Instead of learning to live off the burgeoning urban handout industry, he could have gone up to Dawson Creek or Fort St. John and worked as a labourer.

LETTERS Democracy under attack by federal government “Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee.” Never before in Canadian history have these words resonated more with Canadians than at this very moment. Our democracy is being hijacked. Our scientists are being muzzled, funding for Elections Canada, which is investing the robocalls, is being cut, and funding for the CBC, which dares to speak up, has been cut. Bill C-38 is undemocratically being rammed through Parliament without adequate time to review and debate the issues. Wake up Canada. Thank goodness for social media. Through Leadnow.ca, an independent advocacy organization that brings generations of Canadians together to achieve progress through democracy, I have gratefully been connected to a community of like-minded people. We say, “Enough is enough. This time we will not roll over like the stereotypical Canadian eh.” We will unite, rally, speak out, and take a stand for our democracy. On June 9 thousands rallied

for democracy and the local feedback was extremely positive. When people become informed on the issues they totally rise to support us. Therein lies our challenge. How does one get the message out when anyone who wants to speak out either gets muzzled or is blocked from getting the media coverage? Jane Devonshire View Royal

More care needed to prevent bullying Charla Huber did the right thing by expressing her thoughts about the bullying issue (“Bullying experience harsh reminder,” June 1). Talking about what happened to you that day, is the best medicine. I know that sounds cliche but it’s true. It must have been very difficult to hear those hurtful words from those kids. You just have to know that there must be something going on in those kids lives for them to lash out like that. Perhaps the many troubles at home or at school had caused them to do this. It’s quite sad that bullying even exists. I think

we have to go back to the source and the source is the parents that made those kids and who are raising those kids. I believe parents need to be 100 per cent involved in their kids lives, ie. such as knowing who their friends are and where they hang out, knowing what they learned in school that day or just knowing their favourite colour. Period. Do we really know our kids? Maybe if we did, there would be less bullying in the world. Kathy Kegalj Langford

View Royal summer hours a concern I wonder if the taxpayers of View Royal realize that their town hall just went on their “summer hours”, which are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.? We are one of only two municipalities that change their hours for the summer and I, for one, have to ask why? How does this better serve the taxpayers of View Royal? I realize that builders would like earlier hours to visit the hall, but one wonders how they do their

business in the other municipalities and still manage to operate. Our town hall should be open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the very least. As most other business do, could they not stagger the staff hours so that these hours can be covered and at least give the taxpayers a chance to visit the hall or get someone on the telephone? Or since they are working shorter hours during the week, perhaps they could open for at least part of the day on Saturday? Coun. David Screech does your business go on summer hours? Coun. Heidi Rast does your office go on summer hours? Coun. Ron Mattson does your office go on summer hours? And to add fuel to the situation, this was all done with no notice in the paper, on the website or posted at the hall. Sunday night (June 3) the website showed hours of operation at 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday the website shows 8:00 to 4:00. Why all the secrecy? Linda Pakos View Royal

Speed can be a killer on Island highways Re. High speed main factor in traffic deaths (Letters, June 8). I’m glad to see I’m not the only person who thinks blaming accidents on “slow” drivers to be absurd. It’s funny how no matter how fast that first car is going in the fast lane, it’s never fast enough for all those drivers behind it. Twenty, 30 or 40 km/h over the limit, it doesn’t seem to matter. If you want to see a string of cars speeding like idiots, stacked like cord wood, just go to the highway. Rain or shine, with one or two fools weaving in and out in high speed bumper-to-bumper traffic, trying to get ahead. If not now, just wait five minutes. I can only assume they don’t care about anyone lives, never mind their own. It’s a good thing the government is going to add more lane barriers on the Malahat. If nothing else, at least one lane might be kept clear during the clean up after some driver kills a car full of people. But don’t count on it. Mike Davey Langford

UVic scientists install early Billet families are needed for the 2012/2013 warning system for tsunamis season. Edward Hill

Rewarding experience to be part of a young hockey players dream to play at the highest level of hockey possible.

News staff

About 300 kilometres from the coast of Vancouver Island at a location dubbed Endeavor Ridge, a one-of-a-kind tsunami early warning system will soon been draped along the sea floor. From above, X will mark the spot more than 2,000 metres below, as four ultra-sensitive pressure devices, each at the end of a 25-km fibre optic cable, feed data through the Neptune system and to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Network. Laying sausage-thick cable at 2,000 metres down is painfully slow, delicate business, but it will give scientists and emergency authorities, for the first time, the direction and speed of tsunamis in the deep ocean, in real time. “These kind of instruments do double duty,” says Kate Moran, director of Neptune Canada, a consortium of universities led by the University of Victoria. “They help us understand the physics of the ocean and also contribute to public safety.” The giant, $3-million tsunami “antenna” will be plugged into the Neptune system, an 800-km loop of powered fibre optic cable linked by 13-tonne nodes and feeding into hundreds of underwater scientific instruments. All data is streamed live through the Internet. The tsunami device works by using extremely sensitive pressure transducers spread in a star formation. For this trip, two of the four will be installed this month, and the remainder in September. They also plan to install the pressure devices on Neptune’s sister, Venus, a cable network in the Saanich Inlet and the mouth of the Fraser River. Moran noted that tsunamis barely cause a blip in wave height in the deep ocean, but, as well documented in disasters in Japan and the Indian Ocean, waves can reach the coast as an unstoppable wall of water. Prototypes of the pressure device detected tsunamis near Chile in 2010 and Samoa in 2009. Moran said this device will give ocean scientists data to improve models for predicting tsunami speed, direction and intensity after an earthquake. It could also act as an early warning system for Vancouver Island. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration operates a ring of buoys in the Pacific to provide tsunami early warning data. Moran hopes the tsunami antenna plugged into Neptune will help improve on that. “We’ve tested the prototype. Now we’ll install the real McCoy,” said Moran, a tsunami expert who once served as a science advisor for the Obama administration. “We’ll collect data and continue to improve predictions of wave impacts on Vancouver Island.” Laying the fibre optic cable involves spooling it off the 274-foot research vessel Thomas G. Thompson, and guidBIKE ing it on the seafloor using a remotely operated submarine called 198 an ROV. 168 The ROV lays the 2 00 5 69 799 cable and plugs it into the pressure device and a junction box on the ffor our new Neptune network. “Laying cable with the ROV is very tricky because the ship is always moving, and in today’s paper! you’ve got to follow the ROV,” Moran said. “It takes a long time. It’s a dance between the ship and ROV in two kilometres of water.”

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Notice is given that all persons who believe that their interest in property may be affected by proposed Bylaw No. 349 will be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the proposed Bylaw at a Public Hearing to be held at the School House, 1589 Millstream Road, Highlands, BC on Monday, June 25, 2012 commencing at 7:00 p.m.

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 1.71-hectare 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 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 acquisition 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.” Between the 1860s and 1940s, Rock Bay was home to a coal gasification plant, which polluted the land with coal tar. It was run by Victoria Gas, subsequently bought out by B.C. Electric, and later B.C. Hydro. Last week, 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

The lands that are the subject of the proposed bylaw comprise approximately 10.7 hectares (26.5 acres) and are described as Lot B, Section 27, Highland District, Plan VIP60905 (1289 Millstream Road) and are shown outlined in bold and noted as ‘SUBJECT PROPERTY’ on Map 1. “Highlands Zoning Bylaw, 1998, Amendment No. 35, (R7 Zone – 1289 Millstream Road, Bylaw No. 349, 2012” General Purpose: Bylaw No. 349 creates a new zone, Rural 7 (R7), and rezones the subject land, generally shown in Map 1, from Rural 1 Zone (R1) to this new zone, Rural 7 (R7). This zone has permitted uses of residential, home-based business, agriculture, and accessory uses, buildings and structures. The base density of this new zone is one dwelling unit per 10.7 hectares (26.5 acres). If the following provision is made relating to community amenity, then the proposed Rural 7 Zone allows for an increase in density to a maximum of 2 lots providing no lot is less than 4.25 hectares (10.5 acres) in size: the donation to the District of Highlands of approximately 0.97 of a hectare of land, generally shown shaded and noted as ‘PARK’ in Map 2, for park purposes.

Jazz fans will know the names Wayne Shorter, George Benson and Chris Botti – all headlining at the upcoming Jazzfest. But there’s plenty of other big talents coming to Victoria for the 10-day festival as well. “They may not have the recognition as the headliners but I feel these are just going to be fantastic shows and I hope Victoria doesn’t miss out on them just because they’re not household names,” said Darryl Mar, artistic director of the festival for the past 28 years. For instance, the Terell Stafford Quintet plays Alix Goolden Hall Thursday evening. Earlier that day, the trumpet player also leads a free workshop on constructing a solo, time and feel issues, and melodic development. Mar first heard Stafford about 10 years ago, and calls him an under-recognized artist. As a pure, mainstream jazz artist, he doesn’t have the commercial appeal of other jazz genres, said Mar. “He’s an amazing jazz trumpeter. I’ve been trying to get him (to come to the festival) for many years. This is his first year here as a leader of his band (but) he has been here before as a side man.”

Terell Stafford and his Quintet bring their post bop/modern jazz sound to the Alix Goolden Hall at 7:30 p.m. on June 28. Another mainstream jazz artist Mar recommends is Eliane Elias Brasiliera Quartet. For people interested in world music “with a groove,” Mar recommends all three shows in Centennial Square in the evening:

Delhi 2 Dublin, Balkan Beat Box, and Los Amigos Invisibles. For people familiar with the hyped-up party atmosphere created by Vancouver-based Delhi 2 Dublin, the other two groups bring the same amount of

Local Aboriginal author focuses on strength and resiliency of Aboriginal people in new book Hope, Faith & Empathy. Monique Gray Smith, a local Aboriginal author, is celebrating the publication of her first book, Hope, Faith & Empathy. The novel is the story of Tilly, a young Indigenous woman growing up in Canada, and the people who help shape her life, survival and her irrepressible spirit. Together, they portray a unique perspective of the history of the First Peoples in Canada including the Sixties Scoop, Indigenous adoption, Indian Day Schools, Residential Schools and tuberculosis hospitals. Woven throughout the book are thought provoking teachings, humour and wisdom that reflect the strength and resiliency of the First Peoples of Canada. Gray Smith’s inspiration comes from her own personal journey and more than 20 years of working with Aboriginal people across Canada and internationally. Gray Smith is a sought after

Victoria police sweep up drug dealers on Pandora Erin McCracken News staff

A two-month police operation known as Rock the Block ended with the recent arrest of a dozen alleged chronic drug dealers.

Officers with the Victoria Police Department’s Focused Enforcement Team and Strike Force Unit have been targeting an increase in the peddling of drugs in plain sight in the 800- and 900-blocks of Pandora Ave.

Undercover police drug buys led to the arrest of 17 suspected male and female drug traffickers, including 12 on June 12. “Alone, these 12 individuals have been responsible for over 2,400 contacts with VicPD over

the years, and are all well-known to officers,� Const. Mike Russell said in a statement. Of those arrested on June 12, one suspect is from Langford, five live in Victoria, one is from Sooke and the others are of no fixed

Victoria man’s disappearance baffles family, detectives

Effective June 25

Summer Service Changes During the summer months, there is less customer demand for transit service. Matching customer needs for the summer enables BC Transit to provide more service during the rest of the year.

Erin McCracken News staff

Most of the bus routes will have summer service changes. This includes seasonal cancellation of express and trips to secondary schools, UVic and Camosun. Daniel Gandza

The following routes will not provide summer service:

“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. 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. “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. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

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, including Beacon Hill and Fernwood, as well as around Mount Finlayson, Mount Doug and East Sooke regional park. 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.

Wind no worry as O’Meara three-peats Travis Paterson News staff

Father’s Day champ Adam O’Meara raises the ribbon while holding oneyear-old son Max at the finish line.

Sunday morning winds blew over tents set up at the event area of Elk Lake’s Hamsterly Beach but had little effect on the times of the top finishers of the Saunders Subaru Victoria Triathlon. The only thing that kept winner Adam O’Meara from breaking four hours in the Half Iron for the second year in a row was his decision to stop and pick up son Max 30 metres from the finish line. Instead he finished 14 seconds over, a worthy trade on Father’s Day. “Carrying Max over the finish line, I thought about it all race,” said O’Meara. “The water was a little choppier (for the swim) than usual but not enough to slow

Royal Colwood Golf Club member Kevin Carrigan and two more Victoria golfers took the top three spots at the 2012 B.C. Golf Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship. Carrigan led after the second round and kept it on the final day at Summerland Golf and Country Club (north of Penticton). A birdie on the final hole capped a one-under, par 71 final round, helping Carrigan to win by two strokes. It all came together for Carrigan with an eagle on the par 5, 478-yard 13th hole. “I had been giving shots back on the front that I really shouldn’t have and I didn’t really hit a great tee shot to be honest,” Carrigan said in a release. “I was lucky enough to find my ball in the middle of the fairway, hit a great shot in and sink the easy putt.” Carrigan parred the next four holes and birdied the 18th and final hole, par 5, 522 yards, for a threeday total of 212 (72-69-71). Meanwhile two-time Men’s mid-amateur winner Bryan Toth (2005 and 2008), also of Victoria, ended the tourney with an impressive 214 total (74-70-70) for second overall. Finishing third in the overall championship was Victoria’s Bryan Scott, a member of the 2011 Men’s Mid-Amateur Team B.C., who almost holed out his

Triathlete burns SPORTS up Chemainus STATS Twilight 5km Gymnastics

Travis Paterson News staff

In 28 years the Legion Twilight Shuffle in Chemainus has seen a lot of national level runners, burn through the five kilometre course. This year was no different as Matt Sharpe, a triathlon prodigy of Victoria’s national training centre, bolted ahead of the field to win the race in 15 minutes and 40 seconds. “Sharpe came to the race on a mission, needing to hit the 15:40 standard for the 5km to qualify for future World Cup triathlon events, which he did with coaches and national triathlon teammates cheering him on,” said race organizer Phil Nicholls. Because the Twilight Shuffle has previously acted as the B.C. championship, the course is certified by Athletics Canada and records there are recognized nationally. Victoria’s Jonathan Gendron finished runner up with a time of 16:46 and Aaron Thomas, a triathlon teammate of Sharpe’s, came in third at 16:56. Claire Morgan (Victoria) won the women’s in 18:34, with Jessica Knowles 20:33 and Miranda Nyah 21:21 in second and third. Nicholls is currently plotting the second running of the McNeill Bay Half Marathon for Sept. 9. The 21km race through Oak Bay and Fairfield returned last year after a multi-year hiatus. This year’s McNeill Bay event is adding the Lightspeed 5km. Up for grabs are a Lightspeed M1 road bike and a Quintana Roo triathlon bike. To register for the McNeill half marathon visit www.eventsonline.ca, and for the Lightspeed 5km visit www.raceonline.ca. sports@vicnews.com

Island pool sharks win major Las Vegas event Couple brings chemistry to the billiards table Natalie North News staff

Most couples aren’t into playing mind games, but Larry and Andrea Wilson have mastered theirs. The Saanich couple are making a name for themselves with their accomplishments in pool, a game which both agree is just as much mental as it is physical. The Wilsons logged their latest win in Las Vegas at the BCA Pool League National Championships, where more than 6,000 professional and amateur entrants competed. On May 15, Larry and Andrea won the advanced Scotch doubles 8 Ball division, a pairs game in which partners alternate shot-byshot.

Don Denton/News staff

Big trophies now decorate Larry and Andrea Wilson’s pool table. The long-time pool players won an international doubles 8-ball championship in Las Vegas. Unlike most of their opponents, the Wilsons, who retired from careers in real estate and property management, are close partners away from the table. “There’s more involved than just being a supportive spouse,� Andrea said. “It’s knowing how to mentally prepare for a match. If we

start getting stressed, we remind ourselves it’s our novelty event.� The “novelty� event is one the amateur players, also the operators of the Vancouver Island Pool League, know their way around. In their first attempt playing Scotch doubles at the BCA Pool League National Championships in

2000, the Wilsons won the open category. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old hat for us now and not quite as exciting,â&#x20AC;? said Larry, who started playing pool 43 years ago in downtown Victoria. While the couple cut their teeth at different pool rooms around town, such as Peacock Billiards and the pool hall that once occupied the lower level of the Sugar Nightclub building, they now log most of their hours at home or the Brittania branch of the Royal Canadian Legion on Summit Avenue. When they finish renovating their Cordova Bay home, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have the luxury of a 1,000 squarefoot pool room with three tables, two of which were used in highlevel professional play, including the 2011 Mosconi Cup. Though the list of Andrea and Larryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual accomplishments is lengthy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both are twotime Canadian national champions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they agree that Larryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skills are slightly sharper than Andreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let their varying abilities create tension between them. Rather, Andrea, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been at the

game for a mere 29 years, sees it as a reality most high-level players face. She attributes the variance in skill levels between the sexes to the female tendency toward nurturing and showing compassion for a wounded opponent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evident your opponent is struggling, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a risk of letting up on a tournament,â&#x20AC;? said Andrea. She later noted that every so often, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll host an unbridled battle, regardless of her opponentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mental state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to remind yourself, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re your own warrior.â&#x20AC;? Larry sees each game as puzzle, a challenge before him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect combination of physical skill and mental acuity. You need to have them both.â&#x20AC;? Larry defines pool as the constant adjustment to a series of situations that arise when things donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go exactly as planned. For the Wilsons, those adjustments are confined to the pool table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen some couples broken down to tears,â&#x20AC;? Andrea added. nnorth@saanichnews.com
