Labour board defines teacher volunteer work No end in sight for strike action, contract dispute Natalie North News staff

Teachers can skip the grad ceremonies and sports practices through the end of the year, but their presence at parent-teacher interviews and kindergarten orientations is non-negotiable. Ritu Mahil, vice-chair of the B.C. Labour Relations Board, backed the B.C. Teachers’ Federation on Friday, when she ruled teachers are within their rights to withdraw from voluntary extracurricular activities such as coaching, supervising field trips or overseeing school clubs. Supporting part of the position of the Public School Employers’ Association that withdrawing from voluntary extracurricular activities is unlawful, the ruling said teachers can’t skip activities that are part of their regular work duties, such as school-based team meetings, individual education program meetings and parent-teacher interviews. The labour board did find the BCTF had been engaged in aspects of an unlawful strike and issued a cease-and-desist order from withdrawing from their regular duties performed outside class hours. Still, Tara Ehrcke, president of the Greater Victoria Teachers’ Association, considers the ruling a win for educators. “I don’t think there have been any actual circumstances where anybody was trying to not do those things,” Ehrcke said. “Voluntary work is indeed voluntary and teachers are free to volun-

teer for that work, or not to volunteer for that work.” The GVTA will discuss their next course of action during a representative meeting this August. Any action will depend on any decisions made over the summer by the Ministry of Education and ministry-appointed mediator Charles Jago, who has until June 30 to submit his recommendations. Bill 22, legislation which imposes hefty fines for illegal striking, expires at the end of August, potentially placing parents, students, teachers and school administration back in the same position they were in last fall. “We’ve been instructing teachers not to make commitments given that there’s some uncertainty in what situation we’ll be in, in September,” Ehrcke added. “At this point we’re still calling on government for a fair and negotiated agreement. … In the event there’s an imposed settlement and it involves concessions, we’ll be looking at what further action we can take next school year.” Ehrcke will be among teachers rallying outside the Ministry of Education office today (June 20) at 4 p.m. The gathering is in support of public education and the board of education trustees in Cowichan who face possible termination after having submitted a deficit budget to the ministry in protest in May. Even if an agreement to the contract negotiations for B.C.’s 41,000 teachers, which began in March 2011, is reached under Jago’s process this month, it will only remain in effect until June 2013 and the next round of bargaining will begin again next March. “There’s no end in sight,” Ehrcke noted. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Tarasoff says his team’s POV Globe (persistence of vision globe) has potential in such areas as advertising. “It can project almost any image you want.” While graduation is just around the corner for the trio, and they’ll likely go off on different career paths, they say they’d like to improve upon their current POV Globe – given that they’ve invested hundreds of hours and dollars on it – and see where that takes them.

Belmont Ave

A team of Camosun College students used a bicycle tire rim, 112 LED lights and their knowledge of a visual phenomenon to create a unique final project for their electronics and computer engineering technology diploma program. The group – made up of students David Spinks, Matt Tarasoff and Justin Temmel – attached the lights along the outside of the rim, hooked it up to a motor to make it spin, and programmed the lights to represent a string of pixels in a photo. When the rim spins fast enough, you can see a bright, holographic-looking globe turning in front of you. “We’re simulating a fully functioning display in spherical formation,” Tarasoff said last Thursday during Capstone 2012, the event where students in the program showcase their final projects.

He says he and his fellow group members took advantage of a trick the eye plays called persistence of vision. While the eye “refreshes” multiple times per second, the brain holds on to the previous image, burning it in your vision for a fraction of a second longer. Persistence of vision creates the appearance of fluidity and continuity from one image to the next. By spinning the bike rim fast enough, previously illuminated parts of the world map stay in your retinas temporarily, creating the illusion of seeing a full globe. “With 112 pixels (made of LED lights) rotated at a faster rate than the human eye refreshes, we can simulate thousands of pixels by just replacing the image before the eye believes it even left,” Tarasoff said. A dozen projects were on display at Capstone, highlighting two years of intensive schooling for

Drivers who took their Western Speedway race plans onto Willis Point Road Saturday afternoon didn’t make it to the finish line. Saanich police impounded three vehicles in the 5600block of Willis Point Rd. near Wallace Drive on June 16. The most brazen of the drivers was a 21 year old Metchosin man, clocked at 137 km/hr while passing another vehicle in the 60 km zone. His Nissan 240 SX was impounded for a week and he was fined $483 under the Motor Vehicle Act. A 32 year old Port Alberni man and a 35 year old Kamloops man, both caught travelling at 106 km/hr, were each fined $368 and saw their vehicles impounded. Those cars – another Nissan 240 SX and a Nissan Sylvia – were marked with racing numbers on the front windshields. The men were in town to race at Western Speedway, where they were to compete in an event involving intentional oversteering known as “drifting.” In addition to the fines, the three drivers are responsible for paying the towing and storage fees, estimated at $350 to $400 each. Six more motorists were fined by the end of the day along the same stretch of rural road. “Willis Point is a focal point for our traffic safety officers and will remain so, especially as the summer is upon us,” said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen. Saanich police will continue to randomly monitor roadways throughout the municipality this summer, Jantzen said, including Willis Point Road, where speeding has been a longstanding problem with area residents. nnorth@saanichnews.com

alcolm Howard smears refried beans down the gulley of a whole wheat tortilla then piles on a stringy clump of scrambled eggs and adds a little salsa. It’s the diet of an Olympian: protein and carbohydrates. “This is courtesy of Own the Podium (program) – making sure we get proper post-workout nutrition as soon as we finish our early session,” said the 29-year-old Victoria resident. He would know. Howard graduated from Harvard University with a biology major and is in the application process for medical school. It’s the beginning of the end of his current tenure with Rowing Canada, which dates back to 2003. “I’ll study somewhere in Canada, that’s all I know.” In the meantime, Howard is chasing down a second Olympic gold medal in the men’s heavyweight eight. Only Howard, Andrew Byrnes (Toronto) and Brian Price (Belleville) remain from the gold-medal winning crew at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. “During that campaign (leading to Beijing) I was very fortunate to have older guys around,” Howard said. “It’s important to have a guy who can teach the younger guys.” New to the boat are five rowers from Ontario: Will Crothers, Jeremiah Brown, Conlin McCabe, Rob Gibson and Doug Csima, and University of Victoria student Gabe Bergen, from 108 Mile House, whose dad also rowed for Canada. “It’s impossible to compare this team to 2008,” Howard said. In Beijing in 2008, Germany was the favourite, and though Howard’s

There was some dissension after the men’s eight settled for bronze at the recent World Rowing Cup in Switzerland. The eight set a worldrecord time in the preliminary heat, but finished third behind Germany and Great Britain in the final.

Howard dismisses any conclusions drawn at this point. “We showed at the World Rowing Cup that we’re a good team. We’ve got the potential speed, and definitely are powerful enough; we just have to put it together on race day.” Price, the team’s coxswain, has lived full-time in Victoria since

Johnson Street Bridge go-to guy returning to Saanich Roszan Holmen News staff

Mike Lai, the City of Victoria’s director for the Johnson Street Bridge replacement project, is resigning as of July 6. He’ll be returning to Saanich as manager of transportation, a position he left four years ago. “There’s a great opportunity with the District of Saanich,” said Lai, of his reason for leaving. “I look at it as a great benefit to me because it allows me to return to my roots, because most of my career has been in transportation planning.” While Lai was hired by Victoria to fill the role of assistant director of engineering and transportation, he was seconded to the bridge project full-time in late 2010. Since then, he’s been in the hot seat, leading a complex and high-profile project subject to constant criticism from a number of community groups opposed to the city’s direction. Lai, however, said his departure is not related to these pressures. “I don’t think it was any different from any other major project,” he said. “Any large project, because of the amount of time and effort that you put in … has its challenges but that was certainly not the reason for me taking on the position with Saanich.” He says he’s looking forward to working on the different challenges, which aren’t downtown specific, that Saanich has to offer, naming the Shelbourne corridor and light-rail transit as two of those projects. Jim Hemstock, Saanich’s current manager of transportation, will become manager of capital works. Victoria’s city manager of operations, Peter Sparanese will now lead the bridge project, with the support of Dwayne Kalynchuk, city director of engineering. Both men were seconded to the bridge project last month. “Mike has been an integral part of this project and the engineering department for the last four years,” wrote Sparanese, in an internal email to staff. “We are extremely grateful for his professional contributions to the City and wish him

nothing but the best in his new position.” The city is now recruiting for a project manager to help guide Sparanese and Kalynchuk through the next phase of the project. “This is a tremendously important transportation project in our Capital City, we must ensure we

have the needed skills and experience to manage it to ensure best value and professional expertise is in place,” Sparanese wrote. On June 25, three engineering firms shortlisted for the bridge job must submit indicative pricing to the city. Their estimates will not be made public but council will

receive the information in a closed meeting. In the fall, one of the firms will be awarded the construction contract. “The project is at a point where it’s going to quickly transition to the construction part of the project,” Lai said. “If I was going to make a change, this is the logical point to do that.”

Saanich lauds volunteers for environmental work Kyle Slavin

Volunteers Chris Bos and Barrie Goodwin show off a male coho salmon from Colquitz river, a few days before 1,000 litres of oil leaked into the waterway.

News staff

Chris Bos doesn’t work to protect the Colquitz River for recognition. Neither do Barrie Goodwin and Dorothy Chambers. But when a home heating tank leaked 1,000 litres of oil into the salmon-bearing watershed last November, the decade of labour the volunteers had put in was publicized, as all their work was potentially in jeopardy. It’s been seven months since the spill, which saw dozens of Coho die as they returned to the river to spawn, but Bos says despite the damage, the outlook is “fairly positive” for the river. “We’re seeing life all along the creek,” he said. “Nature has a remarkable ability to bounce back. From the perspective of the Coho, their life cycle is like a five-year period, so it’s difficult to say whether there was any real big impact there or not. But right now it’s basically good news to pass on.” Bos, Goodwin and Chambers were recognized by Saanich council on Monday with an environmental award for biodiversity conservation. “It’s a way to honour those people that go above and beyond and do it for completely unselfish reasons. They do it for the greater good of the community,

of Saanich, of other people, and I’m sure they do it for supreme enjoyment, too,” said Coun. Vicki Sanders, who chairs the environmental advisory committee. “I think it’s good to honour people who are being good environmental role models.” “I’m very honoured to have the spotlight put on us for the work that’s being done. It’s not done for the pat on the back, but it’s always nice to be recognized,” Bos said. “It makes those winter mornings when you’re standing in the cold a little nicer.” Also honoured Monday night were Judith Carder (individual citizen); Konukson Park Weedy Whackers (volunteer organizations); Heritage Office Furnishings Victoria Ltd. (business/commercial); Ecole Marigold elementary (youth/school group); Rex Welland (posthumous long-term achievement); and Copperfield

Village (sustainability). Bos is positive about the future of the creek, but it may be five years before they know if there are longer-term impacts. He says fewer juvenile salmon were seen leaving the Colquitz in the spring than in year’s past, but adds that observation could be because the fish may have left earlier in the spring than usual. He’s also noticed, anecdotally, that there are fewer crayfish and herons on the Colquitz, but he can’t say for sure whether that is attributable to the spill. “There could be hundreds of reasons for these unusual events, but they don’t necessarily line up and point to the oil spill. There will be consequences if you put oil in a pristine environment,” Bos said. “You can’t have them in highly polluted environment – but Coho are amazingly resilient.”

OUR VIEW

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.

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 in tow. 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. tfletcher@blackpress.ca Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com.

WHY WAIT? WE CAN HELP NOW!

Happiness is a beautiful smile!

Beware of the ‘superior species’ Re: Don’t feel too sorry for Fido, (Our View, June 13). I was disappointed to read this column. I am not sure if this is the overall view of the Saanich News because it was written under “Our View.” I think it is important for people to give their opinions regarding touchy subjects such as whether or not dogs should be allowed on buses. I appreciate that an opinion was given; what bothers me is that it was written in a confusing manner and the tone was condescending at times. Mentioning that dogs don’t belong in a place where there is a fireworks show or a busy market makes sense, but does not help to prove that canines should not be allowed on buses. It was stated that if instead of an overpopulation of deer, it was rats or snakes that were in great numbers, that the CRD would have no problem making a decision about their demise. Actually rats were introduced (through human activities such as trade through shipping), and the black-tailed deer is a native species whose density has greatly increased due a lack of natural predators and destruction of environment through clearing of forests. The circumstance is different and relates to many factors. And we have no dangerous snakes on Vancouver Island so overpopulation would likely mean more food for their predators and fewer rodents. But this is a whole new topic on its own. And besides, how does this relate to dogs being allowed on buses anyway? What bothered me most about the column was the statement in the last paragraph, “We must remember that as humans we are the superior species, and as such we must make decisions based on what is best for us.” This can make one wonder why humans are spending epic amounts of resources to attempt to fix the issues resulting from those informed decisions. The reason why humans make all the decisions is because they have a voice and the other billions of species that live on this planet do not. Honestly, I hope that dogs will never truly be anthropomorphized as it is suggested in the article. It would mean that they have traded their amazing disposition for unconditional love for the egocentrism of the human species. And that would be sad. Stephanie Wolf Saanich

Humans not better, but are stewards Re: Don’t feel too sorry for Fido, (Our View, June 13). While I do agree that there are levels of appropriateness to be considered when accommodating people’s canine companions, I take exception to the idea that as “the superior species,” humans “must make decisions based on what is best for us.” Decisions made for our best alone, have, in so many contexts, led to disasters – economically, ecologically and socially. I could go on. We are not so much a superior species as we are the species charged with the responsibility of stewardship of the earth’s resources and lifeforms. As such, we need to make decisions that strive to accommodate the best for all parties involved. Melaney Black Saanich

Nothing to feel superior about Re: Don’t feel too sorry for Fido, (Our View, June 13). I am having great difficulty with the statement: “We must remember that as humans we are the superior species and as such we must make decisions based on what is best for us.” When I consider the grievous harm inflicted upon both humans and animals by our “superior species” over the years, I feel sad and angry, not superior. Elizabeth Wright Saanich

Loudest voices could dictate deer debate Re: Don’t feel too sorry for Fido, (Our View, June 13). “We must remember that as humans we are the superior species, and as such we must make decisions based on what is best for us, even if that means our four-legged friends miss the picnic.” I must confess that I had to read this sentence twice before I could be sure that I understood it correctly, given what is in our sorry age its unequaled “political incorrectness” and that it wasn’t

some sort of joke. Now that I am sure of both, I would like nothing better than to be able to greet and praise the author. I cannot, alas, for this newspaper, like other Canadian newspapers, persists in the deplorable habit of leaving editorials unsigned. But no matter. What must happen now is that all like-minded property owners in the Capital Regional District, who insist on their right to grow food, or just simply cultivate a beautiful garden, bombard with the above sentence, over and over again, the Capital Regional District citizens’ committee labouring away at deciding the fate of our marauding deer population. Perhaps then it will not give way to the very few with the loudest mouths and go right to the only rational solution: a CRDwide cull. Zoltan Roman Saanich

Students should protest real issues Re: Loud, proud protest (Photo, June 13) A correction and wake-up call is needed for your June 13 editorial photo caption. It says that our students are supporting “their Quebec counterparts, who are protesting high tuition fees.” Fees in Quebec are by far the lowest in the country and are less than half those of their concerned counterparts from UVic. The Quebec students are protesting a fee raise that would bring their rates closer to ours. Their low fees are subsidized by the rest of Canada, so please, put your pots away and get a real issue to make some noise about. Cathie Makaroff Victoria

Vision Matters Dr. Victor J. Chin

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

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.

Saanich mulls art for Craigflower Bridge Money slated for public art News staff

Residents living near the Gorge Waterway may get one more chance to provide input on a design element of the new Craigflower bridge. An application from the arts, culture and heritage committee, in conjunction with the Gorge Tillicum Community Association, went before Saanich council Monday requesting that public art be incorporated into the project. “The sense was with this bridge, here’s an opportunity to tell drivers they’re entering Saanich and that they’re entering a neighbourhood,� said Coun. Vic Derman, who chairs the committee. Community association president Rob Wickson says given the historical nature of the area – with Craigflower Manor on the View Royal side and the schoolhouse on the Saanich side – it’s a perfect opportunity to recognize the local roots. “It should include some First

NEWS

IN BRIEF

Nations recognition, and maybe some historical recognition of our European past,� Wickson said. “We want to see the bridge to become a place, as opposed to a road. It’s going to be a car place but it needs to be a people place.� Derman says the request to council, which happened after the News press deadline, is asking for support in setting up a jury system to select public art. Saanich has a policy that one per cent of the value of a municipal project goes toward the purchase, commission or maintenance of public art. The $10.7-million Craigflower Bridge reconstruction project is funded mostly by federal gas tax money. The existing narrow, two-lane bridge is 79 years old. It’s slated to be replaced by a three-lane bridge, complete with bike lanes and wide sidewalks. Construction was scheduled to begin earlier this month, but Saanich and View Royal delayed the build till 2013. It has not yet been announced whether construction, slated to last six months, will begin in January or June of next year. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Women injured in drunken crash A young woman faces a drunk driving charge after crashing into a utility pole in Saanich early Thursday morning. Saanich police say a car collided with the pole in the 3900block of Gordon Head Rd., in a single-vehicle incident. The impact was enough to trap the female passenger. Saanich firefighters freed her using the Jaws of Life. Both women, in their early 20s, were taken to Victoria General Hospital with serious but non life threatening injuries, police say. Alcohol is considered a factor and the drivers faces a criminal charge for impaired driving.

BC Seniors Games Anniversary

Victoria man’s disappearance baffles family, detectives Erin McCracken News staff

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

BURNABY “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.

B.C. Transit has the green light to purchase two new conventional buses ahead of plans to review and possibly expand Greater Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be available until information comes back from the upcoming service review for the region as well as from a threeyear 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. The new vehicles could help address the service gap, said commission member, Victoria Coun. Marianne Alto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine that a year from now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to be in a position to use two more buses,â&#x20AC;? she said. Through the development of a three-year service and financial strategy, B.C. Transit will look at creating a fare strategy, three-year base budgets, expansion scenarios and related infrastructure investments. A draft report will be presented to the commission in September. Staff are also starting a 20-month service review that will analyze ridership and ultimately identify improvements to the transit service, potential service expansions and infrastructure options. The Crown corporation hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t conducted a service review in 10 years in Greater Victoria. Approved minor service review recommendations, such as scheduling changes, could come into effect as early as fall 2013. emccracken@vicnews.com

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:

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.

FLYER in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper!

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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the property will ultimately

have some sort of commercial industrial use; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consistent with our desire,â&#x20AC;? said Mason, of Vancouverbased Longbow Properties. More importantly, the acquisition will serve to re-establish historical ties to the land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives them a foothold in the Inner Harbour, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really where they came from years and years ago,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an emotional attachment. â&#x20AC;Ś The First Nations expressed a very strong interest in this property a long time ago.â&#x20AC;? 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 wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to get some more activity and life in the downtown, at the north end,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way better than just having derelict property sitting there.â&#x20AC;? The land holds high potential for an industrial high-tech park and some kind of live-work opportunities, Fortin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly there is also an opportunity for a park â&#x20AC;Ś strangely the remediation level for industrial land is the same for a park.â&#x20AC;?

Bidders sought for train station Roszan Holmen News staff

The City of Victoria is asking parties interested in acquiring the former E&N Railway station to submit proposals for its relocation and reuse. It’s not going to be an easy job for the winning proponent, however. “This building is built on slab – it cannot be picked up and moved,” Coun. Pam Madoff said. “It’s likely to have to be deconstructed and rebuilt.” The train station, located on the east side of the Johnson Street bridge, was closed in April 2011, when VIA Rail stopped its Victoria-to-Courtenay run due to deteriorating track conditions. While the train is expected to run again in 2013, its new terminus will likely be in Vic West. City engineer Peter Sparanese told council that proposals will be evaluated based on their cost to the city, as well as the “highest

and best use” of the structure. The criteria left councillors with questions and a desire for more input. “My gut feeling is given sensitivities around rail, heritage elements and other considerations, there could be value in sounding out council’s views,” said Coun. Ben Isitt. He argued that council, rather than staff, should make the final decision. City manager Gail Stephens, however, said a more appropriate council role would be giving input into more spe-

cific evaluation criteria. In ranking the proposals, Coun. Charlayne Thornton-Joe said local use of the train station should get more weight than other considerations. Mayor Dean Fortin disagreed. “If a guy on Salt Spring Island will do it for free, I’m more interested in that than I am interested in paying somebody a lot of money to keep it for Victoria.” Once the request for proposals is officially made, it will be posted at www.victoria.ca.

Mounties get their man, eventually Kyle Wells N ews 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. 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 the Allandale gravel pit on Sooke

Road, Brens took off running. The RCMP officers pursued with dogs into an area thick with bushes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did a track for two hours. It was an exhaustive dog track,â&#x20AC;? said West Shore RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Max Fossum. 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. On-duty officers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to the barber shop in time to

arrest Brens, who has a history of resisting arrest. The off-duty officer decided it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be safe to bring in Brens on his own without any weapons or cuffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It probably would have been a pretty good fight,â&#x20AC;? Fossum said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good thing that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that because it probably would have created a pretty big mess in the barbershop. You really have to be careful, especially when you know this guy is probably going to fight.â&#x20AC;? Later that day, police received a tip about Brensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; location. 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just shows, you can run for a while, through the bush and beat the dogs, and end up being arrested anyway,â&#x20AC;? Fossum said. A new court date for Brens has yet to be set. news@goldstreamgazette.com

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.
