Firefighters’ wages dominate municipal employee payroll

VOL. 24, NO. 23

WELCOME TO SUMMER

Members’ roles have changed considerably over the years with higher levels of diverse training increasingly necessary BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Remuneration for Nanaimo’s firefighters dominate the city’s recently released list of municipal employees making more than $75,000 annually during 2011. While the list grew to 176 municipal employees making that amount or more – that’s up from 112 employees in 2008 – firefighters account for 76 of those positions. Of those, 24 firefighters exceed the $100,000 mark with 16 fire captains making between $100,000 and $107,000 annually. In 2008, only four firefighters, all chiefs or assistant chiefs, made more than $100,000. Firefighters are currently negotiating a new contract with the city, which is expected to be completed later this year. Under the current contract, Nanaimo’s International Association of Fire Fighters union members received an annual wage increase of almost four per cent. That means a firefighter making about $85,000 in 2008 is now taking in on average $12,000 more. Nanaimo Fire Chief Ron Lambert said as an industry, firefighter wages throughout the province are consistent with each other, and IAFF locals bargain based on other communities in the province. He added that the roles of firefighters have changed considerably

over the last several years and that members have had to become more diverse in their training. “What has happened with firefighter wages is that there is parity with Vancouver,” said Lambert. “As an industry, firefighter wages throughout the province now, for the most part, are consistent with one another. And these numbers are based on all of our firefighters’ incomes aggregated, including training programs and overtime.” Lambert added that firefighting is only one part of his members’ duties under the current contract. Medical response, technical rescues, public education and vehicle extrication all require high levels of training. “Arbitrators have decided the standard,” he said. On average each year, Nanaimo firefighters respond to about 5,000 calls. Of those, 60 per cent are medical response. Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan said he wasn’t in a position to comment on firefighters’ wages because they are at the bargaining table, but he did say protecting the citizens of Nanaimo is a council priority. “It’s expensive, yes, but there are standards to be met and people expect a certain service level and we have made it a priority to provide that,” said Ruttan. He added that because of Nanaimo’s linear shape, ensuring proper response times is a challenge. ◆ See ‘PROTECTIVE’ /4

Candlelight vigil held for Lisa Marie BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

A candlelight vigil Saturday (June 23) will mark the 10th anniversary of a Nanaimo woman’s disappearance. Lisa Marie Young has not been seen since she left a house party in Nanaimo the morning of June 30, 2002. Ten years later, her mother, Joanne Young, still waits for the mystery of her daughter’s disappearance to be solved and Nanaimo RCMP investigators continue to hope for a break in the case. In the intervening years, Joanne has

fought to keep her daughter’s memory alive with walks, vigils and other public reminders. This year’s event, A Voice for Lisa Marie, takes place at 10 a.m. at Christ Community Church, 2221 Bowen Rd. Supporters will set out for a walk along Bowen Road at 10:15 a.m. and then return to the church to share memories. Joanne arranged the ceremony to be held one week ahead of the anniversary of her daughter’s disappearance, so it won’t conflict with the Canada Day holiday and more people can turnout. ◆ See ‘MOUNTIES’ /7

Nathan Beaudin, 1, takes a turn driving the engine on the El Paso train ride during Re/Max of Nanaimo’s Customer Appreciation Day Saturday. Crowds braved the soggy weather to take in a petting zoo, bouncy castle, climbing wall and a hotdog and hamburger barbecue.

Substitute teachers sought I teachers, said Southwick. “It’s encouraging that there are some jobs out there for some people,” she said. “The big issue is that there’s fewer students, so we don’t keep adding to our roster. And even though we have a number of people who are eligible to retire, people are choosing not to retire.” Southwick said people want to work and live in Nanaimo, so it is harder to get a job here. She also believes universities are producing too many students. Justin Green, first vice-president of the Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association, said in recent years, only teachers who specialize in certain subject areas such as physical education or upper level sciences, are considered for the TOC list. “This one it became evident that there’s just not enough elementary generalists,” he said. “It’s

CLOSE TO 20 names added to teacher-oncall list. BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo school district is hiring more substitute teachers. Chris Southwick, assistant superintendent, said district officials are looking to add 10-20 teachers to the teacher-on-call list, which has about 200 names on it, to ensure there are enough people to cover absences. The district also hired about 25 elementary and secondary substitute teachers in December. The hirings are significant because for the past couple of years, the list has only been open to new candidates in certain specialty areas, such as shop or music

good in the fact that we’re not going to have instances of not filling vacancies.” On the other hand, the more people on the list, the less opportunities for employment, said Green. TOCs currently average about 70 callouts a year in the district, although some teachers are also on TOC lists for other school districts and aren’t available all the time. “It’s a balancing act,” he said. Green said there’s been instances in past months where a substitute teacher could not be found even though there were no training sessions that pulled a number of teachers from their classrooms. When this happens, a nonenrolling teacher at the school, such as the teacher-librarian, or an administrator, must put aside their own job for the day and fill the vacancy, he said.

Fire officials are treating a blaze that destroyed an old farmhouse off Westwood Road last week as suspicious. Rick Kwasnecha, fire investigator with Nanaimo Fire Rescue, said Friday’s early morning fire has been turned over to the RCMP for further investigation. “The building was vacant and it was insecure,” he said. “Our preliminary investigation results show that we have a possible human-caused fire.” Investigators determined the blaze started in one of the ground floor rooms of the twostorey house, but were unable to determine exactly what caused the fire because the damage was so severe. Kwasnecha expects to wrap up his portion of the investigation in the next couple of weeks.

CHRIS HAMLYN/THE NEWS BULLETIN

A false alarm from a pocketdialed cellphone sent emergency responders scrambling to Long Lake on the weekend. Events unfolded Sunday shortly before 1 p.m. when a 911 operator received a frantic call in which she heard people screaming and words to the effect that a boat was sinking. “There was lots of voices, screaming and there was talk about a boat being sunk,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. “The operator actually was convinced it was someone in distress in a vessel that was going down.” A trace of the cellphone’s location suggested the call came from Victoria Avenue and 102nd Street near Long Lake. Five police cars and three Nanaimo Fire Rescue trucks plus a rescue boat were rushed to Long Lake where crews found no emergency had taken place. Police then contacted the cellphone’s owner, who informed them her daughter, 15, was at a nearby McDonald’s restaurant with her cellphone. Police found the girl in the restaurant’s play area where she was playing a makebelieve game about the sinking of the Titanic with some younger children. “She didn’t have her cellphone locked, it pocket dialed and went on for 90 seconds,” O’Brien said. “Five police cars and three fire trucks were tied up for a minimum 30 minutes. It was a huge waste of resources that could have been easily prevented.” O’Brien said people need to lock their phones and if possible, not have 911 programmed into their cellphones to prevent false emergency calls.

Westwood fire report in hands of Mounties

BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

3956 Victoria Ave.

A verbal argument that resulted in the RCMP calling out its emergency response team ended peacefully Wednesday morning. The incident started at about 2 a.m. when a 53-year-old male tenant of the Sharman Mobile Home Park on Metral Drive in north Nanaimo and his landlord got into a verbal argument. “The landlord was over at his tenant’s place,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. “They get into a heated argument, a handgun was produced and threats were made.” It was several hours before the landlord could move to the front porch and call 911. “Alcohol was a factor and he was hoping at one point the guy would fall asleep on him,” O’Brien said. Mounties plucked the victim off the porch, carried him to safety and called in ERT members to contain the residence and evacuate nearby homes. The suspect gave himself up shortly before 9 a.m. and was scheduled to appear in Nanaimo provincial court Wednesday to face recommended charges related to weapons and uttering threats.

Bestwick back on BCHL bench

Protective services costs $36.1 M ◆ From /1 A new fire hall in Chase River, which required hiring 20 new firefighters over the last two years, was built in 2010 and another hall on Hammond Bay Road, not far from the Pacific Biological Station, is in the works. “It’s definitely not getting less expensive,” he said. In 2012, protective services, which includes police and fire services, account for $23.6 million and $12.5 million respectively, or one-third, of the city’s $118.9-million operational budget. RCMP members receive federal paychecks. Overall, municipal employees with remuneration greater

than $75,000 cost taxpayers $16.7 million while all 750 union city employees cost $28.1 million, for total city staff remuneration of $44.9 million. Topping that list was city manager Al Kenning who earned $223,269 while Doug Holmes, general manager of corporate services and assistant city manager, made $180,816. Twenty-seven other union excluded management earned more than $100,000. Remuneration for the city’s elected officials in 2011 cost taxpayers $290,573. Each year, owners of about 30,000 taxable properties in Nanaimo generate about $86 million in tax revenue.

The B.C. Hockey League’s Island Division just got a whole lot more interesting. Bill Bestwick, the former coach of the Nanaimo Clippers, was introduced Wednesday as the new coach and general manager of the Victoria Grizzlies. The junior A hockey club will be under new ownership, as a group called Vancouver Island Sports and Entertainment Ltd. is finalizing a deal for the majority share of the team. “One of the worst kept secrets in the last 24 hours is who’s going to come up and help us to do this,” said Ron Walchuk, president of VISE. “Bill’s a great hockey strategist, he’s got passion in developing young players, he’s proven in the business side of running an organization, so I’m really excited to bring him to the Victoria Grizzlies.” As a current city councillor in Nanaimo, Bestwick said that he will be splitting his time between the two cities, but may distance himself from some committees. He said he will be living in Victoria for the majority of the week, while doing a lot of commuting. Bestwick coached the Clippers for two separate stretches,

most recently from 2001-11. He won BCHL championships in 2004 and 2007 but was fired after the 2010-11 season when the Clippers lost to the Grizzlies in the first round of the playoffs. Attendance for Grizzlies games has been dropping since the arrival of the Victoria Royals WHL franchise to Victoria, but both Bestwick and the owners feel they can get the fans back in the seats. “The city is big enough to coexist with two franchises and so long as we provide quality entertainment, so long as we provide our best effort,” Bestwick said. “Are we going to compete with them? I don’t really think so. We need to concern ourselves with the product and our presentation and be better at it … give us a chance.” Coming into his new role in mid-June puts him well behind other franchises in terms of building a team in the off-season, Bestwick said, but he’s confident that he can get the job done. “We’d probably need to score about 10 goals right now with 30 seconds to go in the game,” Bestwick said. “But that’s just part of the challenge.” -with files from Kyle Wells

Arena liquor violation shuts down beer garden I TEAMS CAN’T sell alcohol at games.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

Sports fans at the Nanaimo Ice Centre won’t be able to have

a beer and watch the game, not for a couple of weeks, anyway. The City of Nanaimo had its liquor licence at the twin arena suspended this month following a decision by the provincial Liquor Control and Licensing Branch. The violation

o c c u r re d b a ck i n March at a recreational hockey tournament at the NIC, when players were drinking beer outside of beer-garden boundaries. “T he infractions were pretty real so we accept the enforcement …” said Darcie Osbor ne, the city’s arenas manager. “It’s alcohol in a public place, really, and when people apply to have a licence there’s conditions which they agree to, so obviously that would be one of them.” The city had to pay a $1,000 fine and the suspension applies to

the next four events, which happen to be three junior B lacrosse games and one senior B lacrosse game. The fact that lacrosse teams are negatively affected because of something that happened during hockey season has caused some hard feelings. “I still don’t understand why we have to lose our licence when we’ve done nothing wrong,” said Irene Morrison, manager of the junior B Nanaimo Timbermen. “I honestly don’t care about the beer garden; I care about the fact that we’re being used

as a scapegoat for hockey.” She said she went shopping Tuesday morning and bought candy bars and pop to sell at Wednesday’s home game at the NIC. “We have to do something to raise money,” she said. “It’s not cheap running this team.” Shawn Swanson, general manager of the senior B Nanaimo DBL Timbermen, said going without a beer garden for a game impacts his team financially. “Now we lose a third of what we’re going to make on our gate,” he said.

Swanson said he ffeels bad for the junior B T-men, who also pay a price “over another team’s doing” but said he didn’t think the infraction was a big deal to begin with. “It’s stuf f that’s been going on as long as arenas have been around,” he said. “Someone’s got their panties tied in a knot over a minor, minor thing.” Osborne said the city didn’t have a choice with the timing of the liquor licence suspension. “We’re not trying to punish one particular user group because of

another’s actions…” she said. “We were very clear to the inspector that it was a difficult one for us because it did occur during ice season.” Osborne said this is the first time the arena has had its liquor licence suspended. “We don’t receive infractions and fines and not take them seriously,” she said. “We’re currently in the process of looking at our operations and how we’re going to deal with alcohol in the building in the future.” sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Inbrief Mounties still investigate case city scene

Masonic visit a boon for city More than 400 delegates are in Nanaimo for a Masonic leadership conference this week. The Grand Lodge of B.C. and Yukon has chosen to hold its 141st annual communication Thursday to Saturday (June 21-23) at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. Conference centre officials estimate the event will generate more than $500,000 in economic benefits for the city. The event includes ceremonies, banquets, meetings and a tour to Coombs for the ladies.

Fire crews busy with fire bug A suspected fire bug was at work in the Bowen Road and Harewood areas early Tuesday morning. Fire crews responded to four small fires in the area, starting with a burning traffic cone near Bowen Park at about 3 a.m. The second fire was a burning portable toilet about an hour later in the Third Street area. Rick Kwasnecha, fire investigator with Nanaimo Fire Rescue, said at this point, firefighters notified police that two arson fires had occurred. But the incidents didn’t stop there – at 4:30 a.m. crews put out a dumpster fire in an apartment complex on Sixth Street and at about 5 a.m., some rubbish was lit on fire on Howard Avenue. Kwasnecha said fire officials suspect it was the same person or group of people responsible for all four incidents.

Lisa Marie would be 31 this year. “There are people who know what happened,” Joanne manages to get out before choking up with emotion. There are plenty of ongoing missing persons cases in B.C., but locally there has always been a strong emphasis by the RCMP on the Lisa Marie Young file because police believe finding her will provide the missing pieces to the puzzle of an unsolved crime. “We believe she met foul play,” said Const.

was when she phoned a friend at 4:30 a.m. Police identified the car and the

man Young left the party with. He is part of a police list of persons of interest in the case, but in spite of following up every lead, producing Crime Stoppers TV reenactments and even conducting a full scale search with K-9 units based on information from a psychic, police have, so far, not been able to prove foul play or find the missing woman’s remains. “Based on the evidence gathered – and we have thousands of pieces of documentation, we have hundreds of tips, we have Crime Stoppers tips, we have the public calling, it’s brought to the public’s attention every year through the family’s vigilance with their walks and not letting her memory fade – our members continue to work this file and, hopefully, someday we’ll get a break and we’ll find out what happened,” O’Brien said.

Federal budget leaves imbalance in coast guard services BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo-Alberni Conservative MP James Lunney expanded on his recent concerns over Canadian Coast Guard cuts Monday, saying that Ottawa bureaucrats have overlooked West Coast geographical challenges by proposing to reduce marine communications and traffic services from five to just two. The cuts are part of Bill C-38, the federal budget, which has moved into the senate and is expected to pass into legislation this week. Kitsilano’s search and rescue base is also slated to be closed, which has caused widespread public concern. Last week, Lunney said he had asked for a hold to be put on the changes – which would see 10 of the country’s 22 MCTS stations close over the next three years – so that further review could take place.

The proposal would leave two centres monitoring 27,000 kilometres of coast.

The five-term politician, who has backed coast guard services since first elected in 2000, said the new plan would leave an imbalance in coast guard services while leaving the West Coast prone to service gaps. “The MCTS proposal would leave just two centres monitoring 27,000 kilometres of B.C. coast from Sidney on Vancouver Island and Prince Rupert in the North Coast,” said Lunney in a press release. “By contrast, Atlantic Canada, even after reorganization,

will retain five MCTS centres covering 11,400 kilometres of coastline. Something all coastal communities B.C. residents understand but Ottawa seems prone to overlook is our offshore geological fault line; minor quakes happen regularly and geologists tell us a major one is a certainty.” Lunney pointed to a strong quake in 2004 that shook Seattle and closed down U.S. monitoring stations, with Canadian centres temporarily picking up the service. If a similar quake affected Canadian centres, especially Sidney, it would result in one centre being responsible for the entire coast. That centre would be MCTS Prince Rupert, which has its own challenges. Lunney, who has visited the site, said heavy rain, fog, and low cloud cover make many of the antennas inaccessible for weeks on end, making it inadequate to be the sole backup for Sidney. Because of the Asia Pacific

Gateway project, the area will also see increased shipping traffic, including oil supertanker traffic from Kitimat if the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline is built. Under the new plan, MCTS Tofino, based in Ucluelet, will be closed, taking about 25 jobs out of the community of about 1,600 people. MCTS Tofino monitors vessels including container ships, tankers, military ships, tugs, barges, sail boats, yachts, cruise ships, commercial and recreational fishers approaching Juan de Fuca Strait, one of the busiest marine traffic lanes in North America. “There is an old adage: a threefold cord is not easily broken,” said Lunney. “MCTS Tofino should remain part of a future state-of-the-art coast guard service.” The proposed plan states that improved technology allows for the closures while maintaining current service levels. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Children lose in labour fight g As in any non-decisive battle between implacable foes, both sides are claiming victory after a Labour Relations Board decision last week. LRB vice-chairwoman Ritu Mahil ruled the B.C. Teachers’ Federation didn’t authorize an illegal strike by directing members to refrain from “activities which occur outside of class time/instructional hours and are truly voluntary and extracurricular.” The decision means NEITHER teachers have the right to SIDE is withdraw their participation keeping in voluntary extra-curricular best interests activities. of students in It’s a win for teachers, says BCTF president mind. Susan Lambert, because it clarifies the distinction between voluntary and non-voluntary extracurricular activities. Summoning the wisdom of Solomon in the middle of an especially tense B.C. labour relations showdown, Mahil also ruled that teachers have to participate in after-hours things that are part of their work duties. This includes parent-teacher interviews, district committee meetings, schoolbased team meetings and Ministry of Education initiatives. So, it’s also a victory for the B.C. government and the B.C. Public School Employees’ Association, which filed an LRB complaint claiming the union struck illegally. Of course, if both sides partially won, they also partially lost, but let’s not dwell on the optics of the public relations spin cycle. There are more important issues at stake. One of which is what to do with a new school year that is only three months away. The LRB ruling helps, but to avoid the uncertainty and disruption that plagued this school year, both sides must remember what’s best for students.

Old-timers might recall when Mike Harcourt’s NDP government took over from the allegedly miserly Social Credit regime and raised welfare rates. They compounded that mistake by relaxing eligibility rules and making it easier for employable people to stay on welfare. After a couple of years of this wealth redistribution, 10 per cent of the B.C. population was on welfare, with more piling on every day. Faced with the results of this staggering blunder, Harcourt lashed out at “cheats, deadbeats and varmints” scamming B.C. taxpayers and launched a crackdown on fraud. Later, the NDP cut the basic rate for single employables to $500 a month. Today it stands at $610, and the NDP looks poised to repeat history. Surrey MLA Jagrup Brar did a month-long publicity stunt in January, living on welfare by wandering from shelter to food bank with TV cameras trailing behind. Brar would have been better off if welfare air had been available. Instead of learning to live off the burgeoning urban handout industry, he could have gone up to Dawson Creek or Fort St. John and worked as a labourer. ◆ Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Government doesn’t care about B.C.’s best interests To the Editor, With the passage of Bill C- 38 in the House of Commons, the process of reviewing pipeline projects will be streamlined as a result of significant changes in the environmental review process. The omnibus budget bill also overhauls environmental protection and fisheries laws. These changes are good news for Enbridge and their proposed project to carry diluted bitumen from the Alberta tar sands to the B.C. coastline for shipment to Asia. This legislation also provides the potential of swifter passage for the twinning of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline and the dredging of the Second Narrows. For the residents of the Great Bear Rainforest and most of Vancouver Island, however, these developments spell uncertainty and probable disaster as a result of oiltransporting supertankers plying their course through difficult to navigate coastal waters. To add insult to injury, the federal government has moved the emergency oil spill response centre from Vancouver to Quebec and is shutting down the Kitsilano coast guard station. The conversation ensuing after the June 3 screening of the film Black Wave: The Legacy of the Exxon Valdez in Nanaimo, left little doubt as to how apprehensive and alarmed viewers were about the inevitability of an oil spill in B.C. waters if the two pipeline projects proceed. Caitlyn Vernon of Sierra Club B.C. spoke emotionally about the dangers an oil spill would present to the Great Bear Rainforest. Since the federal government has demonstrated with Bill C-38 that it does not have the best interests of B.C. in mind, local governments must be called upon to voice their opposition to dangerous cutbacks and oil projects that will not benefit B.C.’s economy and only spell catastrophe for the coast and British Columbians.

Income inequality a child of the ’70s

To the Editor, Re: Gap between rich and poor is not a new development, Letters, June 14. I find it interesting how Jim Corder in one breath admits he is not an economist, and with his next breath, tells us income inequality has been widening since the 1930s. An odd way to convince people. His statement though,

is wrong, dead wrong. The income gap has not been widening since the 1930s, it’s only been widening since the 1970s. At the end of the Second World War and with the creation of social safety nets in the west, the income gap was much smaller. Home ownership was up, tuition was low, and jobs were aplenty. These were the days of Leave It To Beaver, Johnny Carson, and the

rise of the middle-class. This trend continued until the mid-1970s when it was reversed by a fantastic idea: neo-liberal economics. Yes, the same word spewed by those very “students” and “protesters” and “environmentalists” who Corder fears most. The same word spewed by those damn progressives. But in the mid-1970s, as soon as the taxes

were lowered and the regulations axed and the unions busted, the income gap began to increase – and continues to do so today. Today, much like the during the Great Depression, the invisible hand of the market is dominated by the greedy hands of the super rich, who capitalize on deregulated markets to increase their already mountainous piles of

wealth. Wealth that never trickles down. Unlike Corder suggests, we should not “emulate them.” Like the “students” and “protesters” and “environmentalists” suggest, markets should be sufficiently regulated so those who barely make dust can have a fair shake at a decent life. A life that’s more equal. David Geselbracht Nanaimo

Readers respond: Feedback on news items District chairman fails to see point To the Editor, Re: Working together best for students, Letters, June 19. I’m having trouble taking Jamie Brennan seriously when he writes “Kip Wood is wrong when he suggests that the Nanaimo/Ladysmith board of education made cuts to programs and services in its 2012-13 operating budget.” Wood said no such thing. What he did suggest was that the Nanaimo school board has failed to address a decade of cuts totalling $16 million. I expect the chairman of the school board to have reasonable reading comprehension, and to be reasonably honest in argument. We deserve that much. William Jackson Nanaimo

Cost of gasoline drops sluggishly To the Editor, Re: Gas price reflects other costs, Letters, June 19. Paul McDowell makes a number of salient points in his recent letter. However, he did not address the incompatibility concerning the rapidity of rising gas prices versus the sluggish way in which price reductions take place. For instance, the last major increase we all suffered was one of 10 cents per litre. That’s quite a hefty amount, even more obvious if figured in the old measure at 45 cents per gallon. This happened overnight, not spread over several days or weeks, which is, without doubt, the way in which the price will fall – providing it actually does.

LETTERS POLICY: Letters should be no longer than 250 words and will be edited. Preference is given to letters expressing an opinion on issues of local relevance or responding to items published in the News Bulletin. Include your address and phone number (although those won’t be published) and a first name or two initials, and a surname. Unsigned letters or third-party letters (those specifically addressing someone else) will not be published. MAIL: Letters, Nanaimo News Bulletin, 777 Poplar St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9S 2H7 FAX: 250-753-0788 E-MAIL: editor@nanaimobulletin.com

It’s hard to believe that the price of any commodity should show such markedly different characteristics in the way in which it’s price fluctuates up and down. Consequently, despite McDowell’s many valid points, I am left with the thought that there is still something rotten in the state of Denmark. Garry Bradford Nanaimo

Oil companies control gas prices To the Editor, Re: Gas price reflects other costs, Letters, June 19. Is Paul McDowell working for the oil cartel of Canada? Gas prices no more reflect on the cost of crude oil than the price of milk on the cost of grass for the cows. If they did, then the prices would fluctuate according to those changes. But what actually happens? The prices jump around without any justifiable reason. And what is even more astounding, they change at every station at the same time, but not at all stations in Canada at the same time. Who, or what, controls this pricing? Not supply and demand. If gas prices were truly controlled by supply and demand, then large cities like Toronto would pay

much more than smaller locations as the demand is much higher there. It is not controlled by the price of crude oil. It is noticeable that when the price of gas goes up, it jumps several cents. But when it comes down, it is by a cent or two each time. It is also not controlled by maintenance work at some refineries. There is always preparation by oil companies storing enough gas to get past this situation. The oil companies are the only ones that could make such price changes. And unfortunately for the consumers, the federal government is based in the oil-rich province of Alberta so it continues to allow this cartel to work. J. Sharpe Nanaimo

Call for review not near enough To the Editor, Re: Lunney calls for review of coastal cuts, June 19. It was good that James Lunney, MP for NanaimoAlberni, has been able to recognize that cutting coast guard services on the B.C. coast is a bad move. It would have been better if he had found the gumption to stand and vote for the amendment to remove these cuts from Bill C-38, the omnibus budget bill that was

forced through the House of Commons last week. Better still, if he could expand his interest to recognize that many of the other provisions in that bill are equally bad or even worse for Canada and its future – for example cuts to environmental regulations and to immigration services. Why did he have to blame federal bureaucrats for the cuts? The truth is that his political masters simply ordered the departments concerned to make cuts – never mind how. Most Canadians know very well where we have to put the blame. But, with Lunney, we should be thankful for small mercies. Jim Manly Nanaimo

MPs should listen to constituents To the Editor, Re: Lunney calls for review of coastal cuts, June 19. It was amusing to watch Nanaimo-Alberni MP James Lunney crying crocodile tears over the coast guard closures that resulted from Bill C-38 – a bill he just voted in favour of. He seems to have gotten his priorities wrong. An MP should always put the interests of his constituents first, not just toe the party line. If MPs just put the interest of their parties first, why bother having them around? S. I. Petersen Nanaimo

Pesticide decision good for province To the Editor, Re: B.C. ban on pesticides rejected by committee, May 22. The British Columbia Special Committee on

Cosmetic Pesticide use should be commended for examining the issue of urban pesticide use so thoroughly. The committee received 8,675 submissions and held 22 meetings where presentations were made by dozens of witnesses including experts from Health Canada, environmental groups, industry organizations, scientific organizations and academics. In the end, the committee made 17 recommendations, but came to the conclusion that scientific evidence does not warrant preventing British Columbians from buying and using approved pesticides so pesticides should not be banned in B.C. The committee did its due diligence on this topic and discovered that pesticides in Canada are regulated by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency which employs more than 350 scientists who are experts in their field. The review process involves a comprehensive set of 200 tests and a review of all scientifically credible studies that exist to ensure the product will not cause harm to people, animals or the environment. If the report from the committee had been different and they had instead recommended a ban, the groups that are unhappy with the actual outcome would be commending the government on a thorough process that looked at all available science before making the decision they did. It’s ironic that these same groups only like the “growing and suggestive body of evidence” when it yields the answer they want. Lorne Hepworth president CropLife Canada

Environment suffers in desire for oil A recent pipeline leak sent 475,000 litres of oil into Alberta’s Red Deer River. It could have been worse – nothing was

being pumped at the time. The company, Plains Midstream, claims the light sour crude may smell bad but poses no

risk to humans. It happened as crews were cleaning a larger spill from last year at another of the company’s pipelines. That one dumped 4.5 million litres of oil into the surrounding forest and wetlands. The recent Red Deer River spill was also the site of a leak in 2008. Industry figures show that more than 3.4 million litres of fossil fuels have been accidentally released from pipelines every year in Alberta since 2006. One litre of spilled oil can contaminate a million litres of groundwater. Enbridge, the company that wants to build a dual pipeline from the tar sands to the B.C. coast, has had more than 800 leaks and spills on its pipelines since 1999, sending close to 27 million litres of oil into the environment. That included a 2010 spill in Michigan that dumped 3.8 million litres of diluted tar sands bitumen into the Kalamazoo River.

ous Douglas Channel and across the Pacific and down the coast to China and California for refining – pale in comparison to rapid exploitation of fossil fuel deposits and the associated impacts of climate change, pollution, and economic short-sightedness. The goal of our government and industry leaders appears to be to dig up as much oil as possible, as quickly as possible, and sell it overseas, and damn the economic and environmental consequences. If that means selling entire tar sands operations and the bitumen to companies owned by a government known for human rights abuses and environmental destruction and if it means polluting water and putting people’s health at risk who cares? There’s a quick buck to be made. And the economy will appear to chug along until the next election. And that’s surely enough time to dismantle

many of the laws and institutions that have made Canada the great country it is. Whether or not we smarten up and start switching to cleaner energy, we’re going to need oil for some time. Rather than rushing headlong into this and putting our environment, health, and economy at risk, it would make more sense to step back, develop a national energy plan and figure out how we can use this valuable and diminishing resource efficiently and in a way that provides long-term benefits for all Canadians rather than a few industrialists and China’s totalitarian government. We also need to start monitoring the longterm impacts of the never-ending spills from leaky pipelines. ◆ Written with contributions from David Suzuki Foundation editorial and communications specialist Ian Hanington. www.davidsuzuki.org.

POTENTIAL FOR oil spills a concern for communities.

Islands Trust opposes pipeline project

I

The Islands Trust council has voted to oppose in principle oil pipeline projects that will expand oil export by barge and tanker from Canada’s West Coast. “Our communities are deeply concerned about the risk of oil spills that could irrevocably damage coastal environments, economies, and communities,” said Sheila Malcolmson, council chairwoman. “Islanders have been vocal about their

desire to see trust council take a stand against new oil pipelines leading to British Columbia’s coast. Islands Trust council feels strongly that the proposed expansion in oil tanker and barge traffic poses an unacceptable risk to our quality of life and the incredible diversity of life in our waters.” Concern about tanker traffic and oil spills is not new for the council, said Malcolmson. “As early as 1983, the Islands T r ust policy statement included a policy to oppose increased oil tanker traffic in and adjacent to Trust waters and to support measures

to reduce such traffic,” she said. In a related decision, council asked Malcolmson to write to the federal Minister of Natural Resources to support the phasing out of crude oil export from Canada’s West Coast by tanker and barge as part of a national energy strategy. The letter builds on a June 2011 council request that the provincial and federal governments consider developing a low carbon energy strategy that strengthens both Canada’s environment and economy.

Morgan Canada’s Trans Mountain Pipeline twinning project and Enbridge’s Northern Gateway project, council members expressed concerns about peak oil and climate change. They felt Canada should focus on renewable energies and domestic energy security instead of shipping unrefined oil products while importing refined oils. At its June meeting, council also directed the Islands Trust executive committee to represent the Trust’s legislated mandate to preserve and protect the Trust area during Kinder Morgan public engagement processes related to the proposed pipeline expansion.

Exhibit features island brickyard The Gabriola Historical and Museum Society opens its season Saturday (June 23) with a new exhibit about the Gabriola Brickyard. Using never before seen artifacts and archival images, Brick by Brick offers a glimpse into a time when the working people of Gabriola Island crafted the very bricks that built the towns and cities of British Columbia. Little remains today of the brickyard except for piles of broken bricks on Brickyard Beach, and the name of the steep hill on South Road. But from the end of the 19th century to 1952, the brickyard was Gabriola’s single most important industry, and largest employer. For more than five decades the brickyard shaped the lives of hundreds of island families, Chinese contract labourers and immigrant workers. The exhibit opens at 11 a.m.

Two years ago Bob Green’s wife, Genie, passed away from complications of lupus. To cope with their grief, Bob and his brother, Bill, from Nanaimo, decided that they needed to help raise awareness of lupus, an acute chronic autoimmune disease that can target any organ or tissue. It can lead to organ failure and death. Anyone can be affected by lupus. Lupus is a difficult disease to diagnose and because it has many symptoms that are similar to other diseases, it is frequently misdiagnosed. There is no known cause or cure. The result of the brother’s need to raise awareness is the Take a Swing to Knock Out Lupus event at Country Club Centre Friday

and Saturday (June 22-23) where the public is invited to take a swing at a car with a sledgehammer for the cost of a donation to the B.C. Lupus Society. The second annual event takes place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday in the Country Club parking lot. Save-On-Foods is supporting the event with a barbecue. The B.C. Lupus Society has been supporting people affected by lupus in British Columbia for 35 years. Its mission is to support advances in research and treatments, create public awareness and provide education and support to people affected by lupus. For more information, please go to www.bclupus.org or call 1-866-585-8787.

Grad Class of 2012 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3: 17, 18 Congratulations and Farewell to the Class of 2012! You have chosen a brilliant passage that speaks well to what sets you apart as followers of Christ Jesus. We are constantly in a state of transformation as we allow Him to draw us ever closer to Him- where there is true freedom! As a class of unique individuals you have challenged us to enable you to finish the course well- so that you could be well-satisfied with your accomplishments here. Many of you already have one foot firmly planted in the future, where exciting plans draw you forward into “adulthood” with all its semi-understood opportunities and challenges. Yet the impact of the dynamism of members of your Class will long linger here. We will miss you, and we will pray that you will continue in Him so that this freedom, that we proclaim and live within, will enable you to truly enjoy the marvelous mysteries that await.

Brandy Bones and Big John Bates will perform at the Queen’s on Canada Day. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

Stage antics Big John Bates ates returns to Nanaimo with a quartet playing more instrumen instruments in a much darker style of music BY MELISSA FRYER

“I don’t think a band can really figure itself out until they get up on stage in front of people,” Bates said. “It’s all the little details.” The last time Big John Bates and his crew hit the stage at the Queen’s they were flanked by burlesque dancers The Voodoo Dollz. “It’s been awhile – about 150 shows ago,” Bates said.

THE NEWS BULLETIN

T

he latest incarnation of Big John Bates gets its first test on the stage at the Queen’s on Canada Day. The Vancouver-based singer and guitar player is touring with some old friends and some new ones, with some new songs and an overall new feel.

The burlesque girls added an extra draw to the show but restricted the band’s freedom somewhat. Costume changes had to be factored into set lists, which made adjustments harder to do. So the focus went back to the band and the music, with Brandy Bones on bass and cello, JT Massacre on percussion – both of whom Bates toured with extensively in the past. The new girl on tuba

and keyboards they simply call Jah. “This will be one of the first shows as a four piece,” Bates said. Cello, tuba and keyboards could mean a softening of Bates’s reputation, established as singer for metal band Annihilator and the punk-abilly sound of the past 10 years. Not a chance. ◆ See ‘BAND’ /21

Vision produced in book form

I

THE HAVEN founders share ideas.

A new book reflects the vision held by founders of a selfimprovement retreat on Gabriola Island. Jock McKeen and Bennet Wong, who founded The Haven in 1983, celebrate the launch of their book The Illuminated Heart: Perspectives on East-West Psychology and Thought at

Diners Rendezvous June 28. In The Illuminated Heart, McKeen and Wong distill a lifetime’s investigation of the theory and practice of Western psychology and classical Chinese philosophy and medicine. They trace the personalities and ideas from east and west that have influenced their own lives and their work with people in North America, Asia and around the globe.

In so doing, they describe their vision of a world in which people can learn to appreciate diversity and experience the fullness of contact, understanding and empathy. The authors said they felt “confirmed, fulfilled, at rest, and deeply, deeply satisfied with this culmination of our investigations and adventures.” Wong and McKeen were awarded honorary doctorates by

City aims to map cultural aspects of Nanaimo BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

A n i nve n t o r y o f Nanaimo’s artistic venues and talent will allow people to see the vast resources the city offers. The City of Nanaimo’s Parks, Recreation and Culture department wants to identify cultural assets and resources, putting them into a searchable database. “All the information will

be accessible to the public,” said Bob Kuhn, manager of recreation and culture services. Cultural resources include: faclities and venues, like the Port Theatre and Nanaimo Centre Stage; Festivals and events, like Marine Festival and the Bathtub races; Herita g e, like the Nanaimo Museum and community archives;

Natural culture, like botannical gardens or parks such as Swy-a-lana lagoon; Artists, including performers in dance, theatre and music, plus visual artists. Artists will also have access to the database to update their own information as it changes. Kuhn said they are also considering including technical crew, like sound and light operators, as well as stories. The latter involves

a significant amount of work and might not be feasible, he said. Once the information is gathered, it will be plotted on a map to see where the arts are concentrated as well as areas under-served for programs and facilities. “We’re working with our IT department to map those resources,” Kuhn said. Each entry will have contact information, so

people who come across groups like Nanaimo Theatre Group will be able to contact the organization directly. Not only will residents be able to search the map, but so will visiting production companies, which will be able to see the talent and resources available before arriving. A contractor will gather the raw data on the arts from now until about Sep-

tember, at which time city staff will start meeting with stakeholders to create a new cultural plan for the city. Artists, producers and more can help the project by submitting their own information for inclusion in the database. The survey is available online at www.survey monkey.com/s/KL3HYL9.

Choir shares rich history I SINGERS TRAVEL from Cambridge University.

A choir with a 500-year history performs for Nanaimo choral fans. The Choir of Christ’s College at the University of Cambridge in Britain performs at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in downtown Nanaimo July 5. Music has played an important role at the college since the earliest days of its 500-year history. Lady Margaret Beaufort, the founder, left the college a bequest of three organs on her death in 1509. The choir’s main purpose is to sing services in the college chapel. The choir comprises of 28 members, selected by audition and aged between 18 and 23 and includes both undergraduate and graduate students, studying a wide range of subjects. More generally, the choir makes an important contribution to the life of the college, singing at feasts, weddings, memorial services and other occasions. Today, as one of Cambridge’s finest mixed-voice ensembles, the group also pursues an exciting range of activities outside college, performing concerts in Cambridge and around the UK, recording albums and broadcasting. The choir has two full programs that will be sung throughout the tour, and

these include a broad range of secular church music. Highlights include Sir Hubert Parry’s Songs of Farewelll and Blest Pair of Sirens; Requiem Masses by Herbert Howells and Kodaly; early polyphonic music by Orlando Gibbons

and William Byrd; and French Romantic music by Camille Saint-Saens and Gabriel Faure. The concert in Nanaimo, which starts at 7:30 p.m., is part of a major concert tour of Canada and the U.S. Tickets are $15.

The Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation needs your help to purchase e Vital Signs Monitors for the New Emergency Department Expansion.

◆ From /18 “It’s a lot darker,” Bates said of the new music, which can be sampled on the sixtrack disk Headless Fowl, a precursor to the band’s full-length album to be released in the fall. “It’s a lot more intense – it’s got a lot of depth to it.” As part of that expansion of creativity, Bones picks up singing duties on some of the songs and the musicians bring more of the variety from the album to the stage, hence the tuba, keyboards and cello. “I’m always inspired by different things,” Bates said. “It’s part of my problem.” After laying down the tracks on Headless Fowl, the band – a trio at the time – went on tour with Murder by Death. Touring is what Bates does relentlessly, logging hundreds of shows across North America and Europe every year.

The Nanaimo gig will be one of three on Vancouver Island and the first as a quartet rather than a trio. The music kicks off

at 9 p.m. Tickets are available at the door. For more information, please visit www.bigjohnbates. com. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo Hub City Paving Pirates batter Justin Clarkson fouls off a pitch during a game earlier this month at Serauxmen Stadium. The Pirates are half a game out of first place after winning three of four on the weekend.

Pirates having fun at ballpark as they chase pennant BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

If the Pirates are feeling the pressure of a pennant race, it sure doesn’t look like it. Nanaimo’s Hub City Paving Pirates (24-6) took their longest road trip of the season last weekend, all the way to Kelowna, and proceeded to win three out of four games against an Okanagan Athletics team that was ahead of them in the standings. And yet another premier league opponent discovered that the Pirates will not only win the ball game, but they’ll do so with smiles on their faces.

“They have so much fun together you wonder if they’re just out here on vacation sometimes and just playing stickball,” said Doug Rogers, Pirates manager. “Sometimes that’s not such a bad thing. They go out there in a stickball frame of mind and usually they play their best baseball in those situations.” The Athletics were a solid team at all positions, but the Pirates were undaunted. They’ll need a similar mindset this coming weekend when they play a doubleheader Sunday (June 24) on the road against the Victoria Mariners (16-7). Since the teams split a doubleader on opening day of the season, this

weekend’s games will settle the season series. There’s also the pennant race to think about – the Pirates are just half a game back of the leagueleading Langley Blaze (25-6). “We need to take care of the games we can take care of,” said Rogers. The Mariners, meanwhile, are fourth in the league and have played the fewest number of games. “It doesn’t matter if we’re in first and they’re in last or vice versa, it’s always tough against them for some reason,” said Rogers. GAME ON … Sunday’s games are slated for noon and 2:30 p.m. at Victoria’s Leyritz Park. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The Nanaimo Clippers are trying to put together a championship roster, and that includes from the goaltender out. The team made a major trade on Tuesday, acquiring goalie Jayson Argue from Manitoba’s Swan Valley Stampeders in exchange for forwards Mike Sones and Brett Hartskamp and goalie Paul Bourbeau. “We’ve been looking for a legitimate starting goaltender,” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers general manager. “To recruit one with zero experience at our level is probably not realistic, therefore our focus was on acquiring one through trade or possibly coming out of major junior.” Argue comes highly recommended. The 18-year-old was the Manitoba Junior Hockey Lea gue’s Player of the Year in 2011-12 after posting a 23-17 record with a 2.61 goals-against average and a .923 save percent-

age with his hometown Stamps. “We’ve got a great athlete joining our t e a m h e r e, ” s a i d Vandekamp. There were a few factors the GM considered in swinging the deal. One is the fact that Sones and Hartskamp are entering their 20-year-old seasons. “We’ve been looking to make some room in our own 20-yearold de par tment…” Vandekamp said. “I like those two young men very much, I’ve got a lot of respect for both of the boys and wish them all the best in the future.” As well, Vandekamp said goaltender Chris Eiserman is unlikely to return to the Clippers because he will p ro b ably h ave t o remain at home in the U.S. to concentrate on his studies. So Argue finds himself as the No. 1 goalie on a team that will compete for a championship. “It sounded like as of right now it’s kind of my spot to lose, but I’m not going in there with that at all,” said Argue. “I’m thinking going in there that it’s a battle.” ◆ See ‘NEW’ /B7

DBL men play back to back BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo DBL Timbermen have been able to beat some of the league’s best teams, but they’re still working to find consistency. The city’s senior B lacrosse team will need to bring two strong efforts this week to ear n points in the standings, as it plays back-to-back nights Friday (June 22) and Saturday. On Friday the DBL T-men (6-6) travel to Abbotsford to face the Valley Rebels (9-2) and on Saturday the Port Moody Thunder (8-1-0-1) come to the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The Timber men aren’t sure yet what their lineup will look like for the road game,

www.bclocalnews.com

but general manager Shawn Swanson said he expects “our top lineup” for Saturday’s home game. The Thunder have already defeated the T-men twice this season. “We’re confident,” said Swanson. “We’ve beat the two teams around them, Ladner and Tri-City. It’s retribution. We’ll try and get a win off them.” The Timber men saw a three-game win streak end Sunday in New Westminster as they lost 14-8 to the Royal City Capitals. Nanaimo played too much of the game short-handed. “We couldn’t play defence without getting a penalty,” said Swanson. Jon Diplock and Russell Thomas scored two goals each in the loss. GAME ON … Saturday’s game against the Thunder at the NIC is a 5:30 p.m. faceoff.

But maybe the Nanaimo Timbermen can find some extra value in Sunday’s big win over the New Westminster Salmonbellies. “When you can beat a team like New West or any other team in this league, it’s definitely a good feeling and there’s lots of building blocks out of these games,â€? said Scott Ranger, captain of the Coastal Windows Timbermen. Beating a good team like the Salmonbellies helps to create more confidence, said Ranger. In lacrosse and in any sport, he said, a team has to learn how to win. “There were a lot of things that we learned within that game,â€? Ranger said. “Fight the little THE NEWS BULLETIN battles, the loose balls, Nanaimo Timbermen player Scott Ranger, right, is checked Sunday a couple at Frank Crane Arena. of fights at the end. We’re right there with them and we’re right there with every team in this league.â€? The Timbermen get a full week to let those lessons sink in, as their next game is Sunday (June 24) on the road against the last-placed Maple Ridge Burrards. “I hate the saying ‘If we lose this one the last one means nothing’ because they all mean something,â€? Ranger said. “But you kind of have to take that mindset into games like this. You can’t go one step forward, two steps back. That’s the big thing, is that we continue to build and continue to get better.â€? GAME ON ‌ The T-men play the Burrards Sunday at 6:45 p.m. and the WLA will offer a pay-per-view webcast at www.theboxrocks. com ‌ After that, the next game for the T-men will be June 30 when they play the Coquitlam Adanacs at Frank Crane Arena. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The Nanaimo Hotfoots soccer team was hot stuff at Special Olympics regional qualifiers. The five-a-side soccer team won a tournament in Duncan June 16 to make it through to next summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial championships in Langley. Nanaimo beat the Victoria Thunder 5-2 in the Island final. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw some pretty three-way passing out there â&#x20AC;Ś culminating in good finishes around the oppositionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal,â&#x20AC;? said Deryck Cowling, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coach, in a press release. Kevin Baldwin, Andy Frenchie and Bill Polz were some of the top scorers and Jason Kemp, Dennis Lynch, Dale Webster and Jason Mills were some players who stood out for their defensive play.

to a good team. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely hard saying that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played my last game here [at Swan Valley] but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to move on and hopefully itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for everybody.â&#x20AC;? Argue said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick to any strict style of play in his crease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kind of look at it as I do whatever I can to stop the puck and as long as the pucks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going in, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy and I guess my team will be happy, too.â&#x20AC;?

The other goalie involved in the trade, Paul Bourbeau, never played for the Clippers; the team acquired his rights as the future considerations of a trade-deadline deal with Dawson Creek.

TTo my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Ma M rk r Wi Wilson, 40, 0 H ds Hu d on, NH N  Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Ka K re r n Bra r un, 67, 7 Gla l ce Ba Bay, NS N  For 20 #23 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Ma M ry r C. My Myrick, k 62 62, Ja J cks k on, M It is such a joy not having to use the CPA MS P P machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wa Wayne Burs r e, 63 63, Beamsvi ville l , ON. N  Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing.

ACNE

By Dr. C. Hammoud Ph.D.

#60 Guaranteed better than all others they used say dozens of delighted users with full names and towns on the Bell website. Works by cleansing blood inside rather than attacking skin from the outside and leaving the actual cause untreated. Here are a few examples:

B.C. Crime Stoppers advisory board recognized its media partners and police coordinators at its Provincial Crime Stoppers Awards last month with Nanaimo receiving the lion’s share. Daryl Major, of Island Radio, left, accepts an award for Crime of the Week and public service announcements on Nanaimo’s WAVE and WOLF radio stations; Chris Hamlyn, of the Nanaimo News Bulletin, accepts the paper’s award for B.C. top publication for its Most Wanted and Unsolved Crimes pages; Jocelyn Matwe picked up Shaw TV’s award for its series of unsolved crime reenactments; and Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, was named police coordinator of the year.

Eczema Psoriasis Rosacea Rashes

I had terrible Acne for 3 years and tried Benzoyl Peroxide, Proactiv, Aloe Vera and others. After 4 days taking the Bell natural product #60 it started to clear up my skin. My skin changed from terrible to beautiful. Mylene Th My T eri riault,t 19, 9 Sore r l-Tr Tracy cy, QC In 2 days my son’s face completely cleared up of acne. My son is 15 and suffered for 3 years. We used many products like laser, Clean Clear, Neem that did not work or burned his skin. Ve V ro r nic ica Ma M rd rden, Semin i ole l , TX T Unbelievable acne free beautiful skin Last couple of years I had acne and tried every product like Murad, Proactiv and antibiotics. Results with #60 were unbelievable. N lis i a Roy oyer,r 28 28, Dora r l,l FL F Within 6 days Thanks for giving me beautiful skin and my self-esteem. Ne eczema cleared up completely. I believe #60 addresses the cause internally instead of the symptoms. Latitifa Bouts t hik ik, 43, 3 No N rt rth Yo Y rk rk, ON I had severe psoriasis over 95% of my body. Last 5 years I have stunned every doctor and dermatologist. I spent tons of money on remedies. After I got Bell #60, I’ve never seen anything work as fast in my life. Within 2 days I saw my skin clearing up. I’m speechless. It was inexpensive compared with what I spent before. Je J ssic ica Sh S antz tz, 25 25, Daws w on Cre r ek, k BC All statements made on the Bell website are sent by delighted users. All are real people. Most have listed phone numbers and can be called for advice. No money is paid to them. Their reward is the relief they are getting. All say #60 works within days not months, not years. It’s more effective than what they used before. It is less expensive (some acne suppliers ship monthly and charge monthly, which may amount to large sums yearly). No side effects were reported on #60. No need to make claims. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

By law, a person using a motorized scooter is classified as a pedestrian. Therefore, when you are operating your scooter, you must obey all the rules for pedestrians such as: Use sidewalks wherever possible. If there are no sidewalks or if sidewalks do not have scooter accessible curb cuts, travel on the far left side of the road facing traffic. Cross at pedestrian crosswalks. Check for traffic before crossing. If there is no crosswalk available, stop, look both ways, and proceed only when all approaching vehicles have come to a full stop. Make “eye contact” with motorists or pedestrians before crossing their path to confirm their intention to stop. Obey all traffic control signs and devices. Operation of scooters in bicycle lanes is prohibited when a sidewalk is available.

Carry a cellular phone or enough change to make a phone call from a pay phone and carry phone numbers in case you encounter unexpected circumstances. You may want to tape emergency phone numbers onto your scooter. In an emergency situation, attract the attention of a passers-by and ask them to phone for help. In the Lower Mainland, you can dial “911” for emergency assistance.

Two Nanoose pharmacists earned national recognition for their work in health promotion.

On June 2 at approximately 2 a.m., a young male was assaulted then robbed by three males. The incident took place on a trail that connects Northfield and Rosstown roads. The 17-year-old male was walking home along the trail when three unknown males approached. Suddenly and without any warning or provocation, the assailants began to punch and kick him. The assault only stopped when the victim threw his wallet at them. Disturbingly, the three suspects were laughing while assaulting the victim. The three suspects are believed to be in their teens and were wearing dark colored hoodies which concealed their faces.

Purses stolen from seniors On June 15 at 12:30 p.m., an employee of the Mary Ellen Drive Co-op gas bar called police to report that one of their elderly customers had her and her friend’s purses stolen from their vehicle. Video surveillance shows an unidentified male walking toward the victim’s Ford Freestar van just as she goes inside the gas bar. This male opened up the driver’s door and removed a purse. Two minutes later, a blue sedan drives by the victim’s van and the suspect jumps out of the passenger side, walks to the car and takes a second purse from the same vehicle. The video is poor quality and little description was provided of the suspect or the suspect vehicle. The suspect may have been waiting in the blue sedan nearby just before the theft, watching vehicles enter the gas bar.

MANY THANKS to the City of Nanaimo for the great job they did in replacing the lawns and vegetable gardens after their waterline construction in Harewood. Everything is 100 per cent.

A BOUQUET. My angels on Earth are Margot and her parents. Margot is a jewel of the Island and I’ve been blessed to have her as a friend since my arrival here five years ago. A true blue friend.

A BOUQUET. I would like to say how sorry I am that Zellers pharmacy has closed. Thank you Mary Rose, Kristen, Lori and Bernadette for years of great and friendly service. I will miss you, Barbara.

A COLOURFUL SPRING BOUQUET to the staff of the Jim Pattison Hyundai dealership. I was pleasantly surprised to pick up a washed SUV with a bottle of water waiting inside after servicing. This made my day.

A BIG BOUQUET OF ORCHIDS to the family and friends who surprised me for a birthday and retirement celebration. Thank you for the gifts, flowers and cards of good wishes. Thanks especially to my husband, Don, who organized the party. Lots of love to you all. A SURPRISE BOUQUET to Carole, Wayne, my grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends for organizing a surprise party for my 90th birthday. A HUGE THANK YOU for the overwhelming community support and the generous assistance of all the volunteers who made the NanGo Grannies’ African Marketplace such a huge success. Proceeds will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmother to Grandmother campaign. TWO BOUQUETS OF SPRING BLOSSOMS to Holly and Alvaro from the Bell store at Woodgrove Centre. They provided outstanding customer service while my cellphone underwent repair and were able to answer questions that the manual and staff at another store were unable or reluctant to answer.

MANY THANKS to the traffic directors at the recent car crash near the Ladysmith Mohawk gas station. A job well done.

RAMBLING ROSES to the staff at the Shoppers Drug Mart in Harewood. You care about all of your customers and we love you back.

AN APPRECIATIVE BOUQUET to Zellers store manager Rob, bike department wizard Cody, as well as the lovely young woman at customer service. After calling about a missing piece on my son’s new bike that he finally grew into (I bought it more than six months ago and had lost my receipt), the staff went out of its way to get it repaired within a few hours. It’s wonderful to know some people still take customer service seriously. A HUGE BOUQUET OF ROSES to Terry of Matheson Jewellers and Fine Art for fixing my son’s graduation present on his day off and when he was rushing to catch a ferry to be with his family. You are amazing.

Both signs were removed with great effort, as they were both secured by five-inch lag screws and four-inch spiral nails into a 10-inch creosote post.

A BEEF F to the people who use the downtown library as a shelter – sleeping in all the chairs and cutting their hair in the washroom. A DEVELOPMENT PERMIT BEEF F to the city for allowing all of these new housing developments on old five-acre farms.

November 29th 1989 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; June 16th 2012

Grant was a loving brother, son and friend whose untimely death has devastated us all. He worked in the forest industry in Campbell River and had recently moved to Calgary to pursue a career. Grant was an outgoing young man who brightened anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life in which he entered, and could make you smile in even the hardest of times. The love Grant held for his family could never be matched and he was never afraid to express it. He was truly one of a kind, and he will live on in the hearts and memories of our family and everyone else who was blessed to have known him. He will be missed by his mother Glenda LaCharite (David), father Kim Eccles, brothers Reid Eccles, Denis LaCharite, sister Amie LaCharite, Grandmothers Joan Eccles and Sonja Mohan as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
