Shoeshine stand sparks street-level debate on Fort St. Councillor working to adapt bylaws to allow vending on public land Roszan Holmen News staff

Jill Goodson knew she risked getting a ticket, but she was ready for an argument. Last week, she set up her red shoe-shine kit, her tiny black chair and a taller chair for customers in the 700 -block of Fort St. A paper sign taped to the chair’s legs read “Jill’s Jazzed-Up Shoes; shoe shine by donation.” Shoe shiners used to line Broad Street 50 years ago, she said. “It kind of went out of fashion a bit, so I’m trying to revive what was very historical in Victoria, with a modern twist.” The city, however, isn’t ready for such a revival. On June 8, the bylaw department formally denied her request for a busker’s licence. Goodson, however, isn’t giving up. The public supports me, she insisted from “her spot” at the mid-block crosswalk near Vancity last Thursday afternoon. Her protest quickly evolved into a spontaneous, public debate. Shortly after 2 p.m., bylaw officers arrived on scene. A soft-spoken officer named John Kitson assured Goodson that he wouldn’t write her a

ticket – at least not this time. Instead, he upped his previous verbal warning with a written warning. “I have to politely ask you to pack up and leave,” he told her. Goodson asked to stay. “It’s a form of protest,” she argued. Kitson refused, but the exchange was respectful. “John has got to know me almost on a personal level,” Goodson explained, after agreeing to pack up. The small crowd that gathered, however, had something else to say. “I support you!” said a passing pedestrian. A man driving by with the window rolled down said the same, giving a thumbs up. A man in a suit confronted the officer: “Don’t you feel bad?” he demanded. Only one naysayer raised his voice. “Bum!” muttered an older man before shuffling off. But he’s likely not Goodson’s only opponent. “We have received complaints,” confirmed Kitson. Standing back, a second officer photographed the hubbub. PLEASE SEE: Street vendor, Page A12

City eyes plan to restore Dallas bluffs $6-million “wish list” project a long-term solution for parks department Roszan Holmen News staff

Earlier this spring, CFB Esquimalt fenced off large parcels of Macaulay Point Park to protect two endangered plant species. Now, the City of Victoria is seeking input into a much more ambitious restoration plan for the Dallas Road bluffs, which is also home to the plants, the dense-flowered lupine and purple sanicle. The city has known about the existence of these rare species for a while, but was spurred to action in 2009 when a section of the bluffs slumped, or collapsed, said Todd Stewardson, Victoria’s manager of parks construction and natural areas. Around the same time, the city was contacted by the federal department in charge of protected species and learned it was responsible for protecting this critical habitat. “We weren’t entirely sure what they meant, because it varies with each species,” Stewardson said. “There’s no clear, stock answer that goes from coast to coast.” The city enlisted the expertise of consulting engineering firm Kerr Wood Leidal. More than two years later, it has a $6-million, five-year action plan to stabilize the bluffs and restore native vegetation by clearing invasive species and limiting recreational use in sensitive areas. “By following this plan, the city is undertaking the kind of stewardship we’re looking for,” said Ken Brock, head of protected areas and stewardship for the Canadian Wildlife Service. “We can’t require a local government to do it. If, however, protection is not in place, there is the option to put a federal regulation in place that will provide that protection. But we vastly prefer a stewardshipfirst approach.” The challenge for the city will be to slow the erosion without halting it completely. Bluffs erode naturally, without interference from human forces, and some native species-at-risk

require erosion to thrive. “They only grow on slightly eroded soils,” Stewardson said. Hard infrastructure, such as a retaining wall, isn’t up for consideration, he added. Instead, the city will plant strategically to let root structures do the work of slowing erosion. The consultant also suggests a strategy called beach nourishment. When waves lap the shore, they pull away at the beach, drawing sand, pebbles or other materials into the ocean, Stewardson explained. “The idea is to actually replace that beach material … so the ocean has something to pull back and ‘feed on,’ so to speak.” Building up the beach in this way would slow erosion of the bluffs – but it’s one of the most costly elements in the action plan, he said. “That’s something that as staff, we’re still chewing on.” Before the city makes such a big investment, staff also need to get a handle on the scope of the erosion problem. Previous reports from the 1970s through the ‘90s have estimated it is receding anywhere

Roszan Holmen/News staff

The dense-flowered lupine, above, is considered an endangered species in Canada, while the purple sanicle, right, is considered threatened. They don’t stand out in a field, but don’t go looking for them on the Dallas Road bluffs. Trampling through the area will worsen their chances of survival.

Roszan Holmen/News staff

City manager of parks construction and natural areas, Todd Stewardson, is overseeing a proposal to restore a three-kilometre-long stretch of the Dallas Road bluffs, from Holland Point Park (at Menzies Street) to Clover Point. The restoration plan includes a public education campaign featuring interpretive signage that explains the value of the bluffs. from 0.01 to 0.1 metres per year. “How much do we need to slow it down?” Stewardson asked. Over at Macaulay Point, habitat restoration has so far consisted of $50,000 in fencing, paid for by CFB Esquimalt. Whether Victoria city council will have an appetite to spend $6 million for habitat restoration in a time of fiscal restraint is the next question. Coun. Chris Coleman, who represents the James Bay neighbourhood bordering the bluffs, said there is merit to the plan. While the city absolutely needs to do more to protect the bluffs, he said, Coleman admitted feeling some sticker shock at the price tag. “If you allocate more money to an initiative on its merits, then what are you choosing not to be involved in?” he asked. Stewardson, however, says work will continue on the bluffs, whether or not the department is given extra money. Some of the project costs are already built in to the annual parks operating budget, such as money for the removal of invasive species. The bluffs will simply move up this priority list. The $6 million is a “grand wish list,” he said.

What are bluffs?

“We haven’t budgeted for it, because up until now we had no idea how much this is going to cost.” rholmen@vicnews.com

Up next ■ The city will present its plan to the Fairfield community for input. The date for the public consultation has yet to be set. Check www.fairfieldcommunity. ca for updates.

A bluff is a steep cliff or bank. The Lekwungen name for the bluffs is Heel-ngikum, meaning “falling away bank” according to First Nations research done by consultant Dave Murray of Kerr Wood Leidal. The waterfront bluffs that run along Dallas Road are part of a broader Garry oak ecosystem, marked by a Mediterranean climate, loose soil and a relatively treeless maritime meadow, said Ken Brock, head of protected areas and stewardship with the Canadian Wildlife Service. “These ecosystems occur … every once in a while, all the way down the West Coast of North America,” he said. “What we’re seeing is the northern extent of this ecosystem … It just kind of pokes its nose into Canada here.”

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 nonnegotiable. Ritu Mahil, vice-chair of the British Columbia Labour Relations Board, backed the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation on Friday (June 15), when she ruled teachers were within their rights to withdraw from voluntary extracurricular activities such as coaching, supervising field trips or overseeing school clubs. Supporting part of the Public School Employers’ Associa-

tion’s claim that withdrawing from voluntary extracurricular activities as an unlawful strike, the ruling stated that 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 found 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 of 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,� she said. “Voluntary work is indeed voluntary and teachers are free to volunteer (or not).� The GVTA will discuss their

next course of action during a representative meeting this August. Any action will depend on 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,â€? 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 con-

cessions, 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 today (June 20) at 4 p.m. The gathering is in support of public education and the board of education in Cowichan, whose members face possible termination after submitting a deficit budget this spring. Even if an agreement is reached under Jago’s process for B.C.’s 41,000 teachers – the BCTF and province began negotiations in March 2011 – it will only remain in effect until June, 2013 and next round of bargaining will begin again next March. “There’s no end in sight,� Ehrcke said. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Heritage rehab idea â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a miracle:â&#x20AC;&#x2122; councillor Roszan Holmen

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dial-a-dopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; operation ends with police raid Police recently clamped down on a dial-a-dope operation, seizing more than $52,000 in drugs destined for Victoria streets. Victoria Strike Force officers targeted the 1400-block of Fort St. after tenants in an apartment building complained.

A search of suites in the building, as well as a vehicle on June 8, uncovered large quantities of drugs: 107 grams of heroin, 140 grams of soft cocaine and 160 grams of rock cocaine or crack. Charges of possession of a controlled substance for the

purpose of trafficking were recommended against a 20-year-old Victoria man and a 25-year-old Vancouver man. The suspects were released by police on a summons to appear in court at a future date. emccracken@vicnews.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 Housingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 $20,000 for improvements that make their home more accessible and safe. The goal of the program is to enable people who have physical limitations to live at home longer. Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical needs change over time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sometimes, a small improvement to a home can make the difference between being able to live independently or not. Types of eligible projects include: ĂŁ +andrails in hallways or stairways, ĂŁ 5DPSVIRUHDVHRIDFFHVV ĂŁ (DV\WRUHDFKZRUNRUVWRUDJH  areas in the kitchen, ĂŁ /HYHUKDQGOHVRQGRRUV ĂŁ :DONLQVKRZHUVZLWKJUDE bars, and ĂŁ %DWKWXEJUDEEDUVDQGVHDWV The projects must be permanent and ďŹ xed to the home, although exceptions can be made for equipment that gives access to an existing part of the home (e.g. a bath lift). /DXQFKHGLQ-DQXDU\+$),

The new Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program helps low-income B.C. seniors and people with disabilities make home modifications for safe, accessible and independent living.

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.

New buses, service review on tap for B.C. Transit 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 June 12 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 unease about approving the purchase without knowing the full details of future service expansion plans. But those details won’t be available until well into the upcoming service review, as well as from a three-year service and financial strategy, to get underway this summer. Mike Davis, B.C. Transit chief operating officer, told the commission a delay in buying and acquiring 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. “I just can’t imagine that a year from now we’re not going to be in a position to use two (more) buses,” 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 hasn’t conducted a service review in 10 years in Greater Victoria. At the June 12 meeting, the commission weighed the option of not purchasing any buses, or buying four vehicles, which would boost annual service levels by 10,000 hours. emccracken@vicnews.com

Johnson Street bridge director resigns from project Job pressure not reason Lai leaving 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 in 2008. “There’s a great opportunity with the District of Saanich,” Lai said 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 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.” Peter Sparanese, city manager of operations,

will take over the bridge project, with the support of Dwayne Kalynchuk, 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 its next phase. Three engineering firms shortlisted for the bridge job were to have indicative

pricing submitted to the city by June 18. Those estimates will not be made public, but council will receive the information in a closed meeting. In the fall, one of them will be awarded the construction contract. “The project is at a

point where it’s going to quickly transition to (construction),” said Lai, describing his role to date as planning and development. “If I was going to make a change, this is the logical point to do that.” rholmen@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Extra-curricular ruling pointless Last 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. Yes, 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 recommence parentteacher interviews and attend school-based team meetings, among other job-related 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 what became 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. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@vicnews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

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.

LETTERS Sharing housing load with business makes sense Re: Social agencies unite to CAP poverty (News, June 13) Thanks to Roszan Holmen for this encouraging overview of how we can work together in community to create housing and dignity and safety for all. Asking business leaders to partner reminds me of housing I have long admired in Mexico. Every year I am astonished at how many new housing projects I see there. I understand some are statesponsored and some federally sponsored. I know in some cases that the employer and employee both contribute to the housing. The employee is the owner. The unit can be sold, but only at a price that keeps the housing for lower-income people. Joanna Wilkinson Victoria

Stubbornness on highway can be dangerous Re: Law-abiding drivers have right to use left (Letters, June 13) Mr. Brunt’s letter expounding the right of people who are driving the speed limit to remain in the left lane because, “We never have the right – ever – to exceed the speed limit,” caught my eye. Several years ago, having been released from hospital two days previously, I was feeling increasingly unwell. My wife went to the neighbour, a retired doctor, who diagnosed me as being in septic shock. He told her not to wait for the ambulance, but to get me to the hospital as soon as possible. She did. I’m still here. I sincerely hope that anyone dealing

with a serious medical emergency is not thwarted by some arrogant, stubborn fool who refuses to yield the left lane. Lorne Newson Esquimalt

Corporate interests overpower B.C.’s green initiatives Re: Goodbye greenhouse gas goals (B.C. Views, June 13) Columnist Tom Fletcher identifies another B.C. Liberal promise as going ‘down the drain.’ Premier Christy Clark has shelved former premier Campbell’s greenhouse gas reduction targets of 33 per cent by 2020 and 80 per cent by 2050. Now corporate gas interests can easily ignore all of the B.C. government’s gestures of greenhouse gas control and simply do what they want to do to realize the most profit for their investors. How? By making liquid natural gas and exporting it to Asia. Again, corporate interests are allowed and encouraged to set the agenda in B.C. Any thought of environmental responsibility is jettisoned by Premier Clark and company. What a tragic commentary on this provincial government’s values and beliefs. Dale Perkins Victoria

Reader speaks out for democracy “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 investigating 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 Canadians together to achieve progress through democracy, I have 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. 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

Dog control bylaws just fine, reader says In the past few editions of the Victoria News there’s been a lot of back-andforth concerning dog bylaws in our city, and I find myself strongly on the side of regulations. I have had the opportunity to live in several foreign countries, not of all of which are as well-developed as ours, and packs of wild dogs running around city streets and occasionally biting passing humans are common. I myself have very bad allergies to most

breeds of dogs and I am thankful that B.C. Transit doesn’t allow people to take their canines on the bus. My wife has a phobia of dogs, even the small ones, and no matter how friendly or “special” an owner thinks their dog is, my wife remains petrified of them when they come sniffing at her knees or jumping up on her. There are too many dog owners who let their dogs off the leash in public parks, allowing them to charge at people and jump up on them, even if only to say “hello.” I realize every dog owner loves dogs, but not everybody is a dog lover, and the bylaws in place are there to protect the common good. Let’s keep it that way, and keep people’s dogs from jumping on me and my wife when we’re walking in the park. Nathan Drescher Victoria Editor’s note: B.C. Transit allows service dogs and those in containers to travel on its buses.

Tsunami warning system installed in Pacific Ocean University of Victoria scientists help guide deep-sea project Edward Hill News staff

About 300 kilometres from the coast of Vancouver Island, at a location dubbed Endeavour Ridge, a one-of-a-kind tsunami early warning system has been draped along the sea floor. From above, X marks the spot more than 2,000 metres below, as four ultra-sensitive pressure devices, each at the end of a 25-kilometre fibre optic cable, feed data through the Neptune system to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Network. Laying sausage-thick cable 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 Neptune Canada director Kate Moran stands with a bottompressure recording device that will help measure the speed and direction of tsunamis in the deep ocean.

One year after the Vancouver Stanley Cup riots, a national charity headquartered in Victoria has been launched in response. Former broadcasting executive Miles Craig announced the creation of Canada’s Temperance Foundation. The goal is to educate people about the benefits of abstinence or restraint in the use of alcohol and drugs. “I was outraged by the reckless and senseless violence that occurred in Vancouver,” Craig said in a press release. “Fuelled by the misuse of alcohol and drugs, the riot demonstrated the need and importance of promoting temperance in both alcohol and drugs to both the young and old of society.”

While city taxpayers have many options for paying their property tax bill, the city has just one option for sending them out: by mail. Victoria’s manager of revenue, Christopher Paine, wants to make electronic billing available for people who request it. Electronic billing is more environmentally friendly, uses less paper and postage and provides better service, he wrote in a report to city council. Council agreed in principle, but the change won’t come so easily. The community charter requires that municipalities mail an annual tax notice in hard copy to each property owner. On May 22, council endorsed a resolution to the Union of British Columbia Municipalities requesting an amendment to the

Street vendor weighs her options Continued from Page A1

After the officers’ departure, a few people lingered, offering advice. The impassioned suited man urged Goodson to keep shining shoes, but change her sign to read “I’m a beggar: Sit down and give me some money.” There’s no bylaw against begging, he pointed out. Less than five metres away, a silent man, cap in hand, watched the action closely. Bystander Chris Gower-Rees, who has a background in public relations, advised Goodson to “reposition” herself. Winning approval is all about perception, he explained. “You’re providing a personal service, (but) if they open it up to personal services, which personal services will be allowed and which will not? Will chair massage be allowed?” Goodson, however, described what she does as busking. “I have 10 years of post-secondary education and a sense of humour,” she said, clearly comfortable in the spotlight. “I am an entertainer.” Later that evening, Goodson pleaded her case for a second time to city council. A sufferer of Crohn’s disease who receives a disability pension, she said she likes to work but can’t find a part-time job.

Avi Lambert gets a shoe shine recently on Fort Street from Jill Goodson. Goodson shines shoes for a donation and so far has been denied a licence from the city. Sharon Tiffin/News staff

“If you can’t find a job, you need to make a job,” she said. Her story has won the support of Coun. Lisa Helps, council’s downtown liaison. Shining shoes is categorically similar to food carts; both are examples of street vending, Helps said Friday. Currently, street vending can only take place on private property, such as parking lots, with permission from the owner. It’s one possibility Goodson is considering for her own business. Helps, however, is hoping to loosen the regulations so that people like Goodson can sell their goods or services on city property. Next month, she and Coun. Marianne Alto will bring a motion to this effect to council. Such a change to city bylaws, however, will take time.

In the meantime, Helps said she hopes the city will categorize Goodson’s shoe-shine business as legal, non-conforming and turn a blind eye. “This is where the activist part of me and the city councillor part of me are in total conflict,” Helps admitted. “(Goodson is) obviously providing a valuable service, she’s obviously providing a livelihood for herself.” rholmen@vicnews.com

Esquimalt getting on board CRD’s kitchen-scrap program Township to be part of interim contract with regional district Erin McCracken News staff

Just weeks before the Capital Regional District begins seeking proponents willing to haul and process residential kitchen scraps, the Township of Esquimalt agreed to be part of the interim contract. Following on the heels of Victoria, which will begin diverting kitchen scraps from the garbage early next year, Esquimalt is making preparations ahead of a foodwaste ban at Hartland Landfill that comes into effect in 2015. The CRD’s processing contract would be offered in 2013 and 2014. It would give municipalities such as Victoria, Esquimalt and potentially Saanich, View Royal, Oak Bay and Sidney, enough time to develop their own strategies prior to the ban on dairy products, eggs, vegetables, grains, fruit, seafood, meat, bones and soiled paper. “The hope is that a private

Last stop on a long ride Old B.C. Transit buses wind up at scrap yard Kyle Slavin News staff

The B.C. Transit bus pulls into its last-ever stop on time: precisely 10 a.m. Despite a full life serving the public, today the metal workhorse carries no passengers, not even a driver, as it’s towed to the Victoria scrapyard where transit buses go to die. The MCI Classic, purchased new in 1989 for $187,500, spent 20 years – upwards of 18 hours a day, seven days a week – on Greater Victoria’s roads. In total, it racked up some 1.5 million kilometres, although nobody knows the exact number – the odometer broke years ago. “The engine on this vehicle has water in the sump. That’s a sign of a major failure,” says Aaron Lamb, executive director of asset management for B.C. Transit. “Could we repair it? Absolutely, you can always repair it. But from an environmental, social and financial standpoint it doesn’t make sense to do that.” This bus is one of the oldest – if not the oldest – in B.C. Transit’s provincial fleet. As per B.C. Transit standards, it was taken off the road in 2009, 20 years after it was purchased. But it still had some life in

it, so it remained in the provincial contingency fleet for a couple years – until it was towed to the scrap yard just north of the Bay Street Bridge last month. Amid an acreage of bald tires, crushed sedans and shredded metal, workers at Steel Pacific Recycling begin taking immediate environmental precautions on the well-kept transit bus. “Any leakage is captured,” says Jenny Farkas, spokesperson for Steel Pacific’s parent company, Schnitzer Steel, as she and Lamb watch employee Derek Vowles pump all the fluids out of the engine. The batteries and mercury switches are removed, and the engine is pulled out. Eventually cleansed of liquid toxins, the bus is pushed into place across the yard and comes to a stop between an excavator and a multiple-storey-tall metal baler. And with almost no effort at all, and no moment of silence to recognize the bus’s decades of service, the bucket of the excavator slams through the roof of the transit bus, crunching the front end and tearing it to shreds. In a matter of minutes, Lamb, in awe as he records the destruction on his cellphone, has one fewer recognizable asset to manage for B.C. Transit. The bus, once 12

Don Denton photos/News staff

At Steel Pacific Recycling, one of the oldest buses in B.C. Transit’s fleet meets its end at the claw of a excavator as it’s recycled into scrap metal. metres long, is condensed into a few bales of metal. It will be loaded onto a barge and floated down to Schnitzer’s main shredder in Tacoma, Wash., where the pieces will be sorted and the majority recycled. “We have an amazingly high recovery rate around vehicle recycling. We can extract finer and finer pieces of all these materials,” Farkas says. Lamb conducts lifecycle analyses on all the province’s buses on a regular basis. “Thirteen to 20 years from now, the buses could use 70 per cent less fuel than they do now. It might make environmental, social and economic sense then to accel-

erate our replacement process,” he says. “There are always new determinants.” The technology in 1989-built bus pales to what’s standard today. There was no air conditioning, no digital signage boards, no wheelchair accessibility, not to mention it guzzled 9,000 litres more fuel each year, and produced an additional 23 tonnes of carbon dioxide. “It really is a workhorse. … There’s a bit of nostalgia here,” Lamb says. Never again will it be fuelled, driven or ridden – at least in this incarnation. “Maybe it’ll be recycled into another bus,” he says optimistically. kslavin@saanichnews.com

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.

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.

Trounce Alley art walk will be a display of pride Society, gallery introduce exhibit for Pride Week 2012 Brittany Lee News staff

Expressing pride doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean gay pride. The Victoria Pride Society and Madrona Gallery are hosting an art walk and exhibition in Trounce Alley during this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pride Week and are hoping to draw a broader crowd to the annual event. In celebration of Prideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s threeyear-long theme of Proud, the art show aims to represent more than just gay pride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity for individuals to express their version of pride, or in having pride, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not necessarily gay pride or trans-pride, it could just be any type of pride,â&#x20AC;? said society spokesperson Laurissa Chapple. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beauty of art, is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s malleable in what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representing or communicating.â&#x20AC;? The Pride Art Walk and Exhibition is a first for the society, but the goal is to make it an annual event, Chapple said. An annual art show was formerly held at the Martin Batchelor Gallery during Pride Week but it was never a part of the Pride events. Michael Warren, owner and

director of Madrona Gallery, approached Victoria Pride Society with the idea for the show after hearing that the Martin Batchelor Gallery would not be hosting its show this year.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just hope that it allows people to engage in Pride Week in a broader way â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Michael Warren The arts and Pride match together so well, Warren said, because they are both forms of expression. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just hope that it allows people to engage in Pride Week in a broader way, (and) allows people to not only express themselves in context of pride through artwork but also for the general public to come and engage in Pride in a different way,â&#x20AC;? he said. For Chapple, the art show is about breaking barriers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to the most is just (seeing) the dynamic and the diversity of our community,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art is one of those things that speaks to every race, every age,

every religion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that really transcends demographic.â&#x20AC;? People are invited to browse art in the alley, visit merchants, and talk to the artists on the exhibitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening night (June 30) from 7 to 10 p.m. The art will continue to be displayed at Madrona Gallery (606 View St.) throughout Pride Week (July 1-8). Emerging, professional, and community artists are welcome to submit original works, displaying a theme of Proud, until the end of the day today (June 20). All work must be available for sale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The art) doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be any direct reference to sexuality or anything like that,â&#x20AC;? Warren said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a personal exploration (of pride). â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, if people do want to do a direct expression in terms of sexuality, we encourage that, too.â&#x20AC;?

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.” Another mainstream jazz artist Mar rec-

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. ommends 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 energy, said Mar.

Big trophies now decorate Larry and Andrea Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pool table. The long-time pool players won an international doubles 8-ball championship in Las Vegas.

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

Most couples arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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-by-shot. Unlike most of their opponents, the Wilsons, who retired from careers in real estate and property management, are close partners away from the table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more involved than just being a supportive spouse,â&#x20AC;? Andrea said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knowing how to mentally prepare for a match. If we start getting stressed, we remind ourselves itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our novelty event.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;noveltyâ&#x20AC;? 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 high-level 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 two-time 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 oppo-

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

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

Rowing team feeling the heat Rebuilt men’s eight team tasked with defending Olympic gold Story by TRAVIS PATERSON

M

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

Coxswain Brian Price and the Canadian men’s heavyweight eight rowing team of Will Crothers, Jeremiah Brown, Andrew Byrnes, Malcolm Howard, Kevin Light (subbing for Conlin McCabe), Rob Gibson, Doug Csima and Gabe Bergen. The team hopes to repeat as Olympic champions this summer. crew was highly rated, the crew didn’t face the same pressures it will in London. 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

2007. He has a wife, two kids and a mortgage here, but still refers to Howard as the only true local from the men’s eight crew. “When you don’t win, you start to pick things apart. I think it’s good for us to get back to Victoria and get back to our training and focus on the Olympics,” Price said. sports@vicnews.com
