Celebrate Sidney Days Festivities underway around town tomorrow and Sunday Devon MacKenzie News staff
Sidney Days are here! The Town of Sidney will be acknowledging Canada’s birthday in its usual fashion with fun, food and fireworks this weekend. Kicking off the celebration on Saturday, June 30 is the Thrifty Foods community barbecue in Beacon Park from 4 to 6 p.m. Money raised from the sale of food goes to the Sidney Lions food bank. Following the barbecue is the big cake cutting and live musical performance by Soul 62 at Beacon Park. The evening will be wrapped up in the usual way with the Town of Sidney’s fireworks extravaganza; keep your ears open for the new addition of musical accompaniment this year. Sunday, July 1 begins with the annual Sidney Days 5 km fun run and walk, and the 2 km youth run, put on by the Peninsula Track and Field Club. Registration is at 6:45 a.m. at the Mary Winspear Centre and the race starts at 8 a.m. The race is followed by the Sidney Kiwanis pancake breakfast at the Mary Winspear Centre. Fill up with flapjacks at 9 a.m. before hitting the annual Sidney Days parade which starts at 11 a.m. The parade route begins at the corner of Beacon Avenue and Resthaven Drive and travels through town. For more fun after the parade, head over to Iroquois Park for the Family Fun Fair. The fair features activities, entertainment, games and even road hockey tournaments where children will be able to play against local firefighters and police officers. Sidney’s Pet Centre and Aquatics presents a dog show at 1:30 p.m. at the park. Bring your furry friend and compete for best trick, best dressed and best look-alike. Anytime after noon, observe the Slegg Lumber Builda-Quick-Boat contest at Beacon Park. Watch teams compete to build the best boat without power tools and on a limited budget. The makeshift boats take to the water at 4:45 p.m. Anyone who can’t make it to Sidney Days can go to the town’s website at www.sidney.ca and click on the web cam link.

Possible BIA part of biz group’s study New society funded to research business models for Sidney merchants Erin Cardone News staff
A group of Sidney businesses will spend their summer examining ways to boost the town’s economy. “There was some general agreement [among merchants] that the economy … had negative impacts on Sidney business growth,” Cliff McNeil-Smith, owner of Tanner’s Books and the Children’s Bookstore told council Monday. McNeil-Smith is a member on the board of the Sidney Business Development Group, a society of about 25 business members that
is an offshoot of the Sidney Merchants’ Co-op. The co-op formed last fall with the hopes of promoting the town’s businesses in the face of a proposal to build a large commercial centre in Central Saanich. The Sidney Business Development Group’s pitch to council Monday ties in with a branding strategy for the town, launched by the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre’s Angus Matthews and the Sidney Pier Hotel’s Lisa Makar last year. “How does something like this get lifted off the ground,” McNeilSmith said of the branding push. “It sounds like it’ll take some initiatives, some money to lift it off the ground.” So after Mayor Larry Cross set aside $60,000 in the town’s budget for economic development, the group established its pitch.
The group plans to deliver data on various economic development models, ideas for partnerships with other business groups, such as the chamber, and potential funding models to the Town of Sidney by mid September. They also hope to assemble a full feasibility study by the end of November. Among the models to explore is a business improvement association, which has regained momentum among some merchants this year. “I think the end goal is most of the people involved now have a sense we need to be able to promote ourselves better. What’s the best way to do that,” said McNeilSmith. “There’s a sense we needed to come together anyway to reach our full potential.” Sidney council on Monday unanimously approved $18,500 in
Who’s involved The Sidney Business Development Group has a board of seven members who stem from the Sidney Merchants’ Co-op. The Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce is in support of the group’s endeavours for a feasibility study. “The [Sidney Business Association] has a role in the community. What it does primarily is run our summer market,” McNeil-Smith said. “Unfortunately the SBA leadership has rebuffed our invitations [to be involved]. But the door’s always open.”

Actor credits Parkland for his love of theatre Continued from page A1
“I was at Parkland during the time they had the Grassroots Theatre program,” Warner explained. “I saw the production the Miracle Worker that they did and one character got to throw food during the performance. I thought that was pretty cool then and I was pretty much hooked.” After graduating from high school, Warner studied at Georgian College in Ontario which spurred on his love for acting. He also took a job with the crew that did technical setup for a Bryan Adams concert which led him to work in the stage technician field. “[When] I started doing stage tech work I got to work with bands like Trooper, Bob Dylan and Pink Floyd,” Warner said. Eighteen years ago, Warner moved his family to Baton Rouge and in 2010 he resurrected his acting career. “It’s been a crazy couple of years,” Warner said. “I’ve done close to 65 movies. I have 10 movies coming out next year. This is a crazy time for me now because the movies I filmed two years ago are coming out now. It’s the calm before the storm.” And it’s not just movies that Warner is acting in. Recently he also had a part in the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ latest music video for their new song “Brendan’s Death Song.” “That song is going to be huge,” said Warner. “The band wrote the song for their manager
POLICE NEWS IN BRIEF
Left too fast pits car versus motorbike Central Saanich police responded to a collision between a pick up truck and motorcycle on Monday, June 25 at 7 p.m. The incident occurred at Benvenuto Drive and West Saanich Road when the driver of the truck was making a left. The 17-year-old Central Saanich driver lost control, crossed the centre line on West Saanich and hit the motorcyclist who was waiting at the red light. No injuries were reported and the male driver was charged with speed too fast for the road conditions.
New driver’s foot slips in rear-ender A minor collision at the corner of Mount Newton X Road and Highway 17 saw a young man slapped with three Motor Vehicle Act infractions. At 10:30 a.m. on Friday, June 22 officers were called to the scene where a 19-year-old Colwood man said his foot slipped off the brake and onto the accelerator, causing his car to collide with the vehicle in front.

played a big role in my life,” said Warner, who still reads Monday Magazine from Baton Rouge. “It’s really what got me into the entertainment business.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Two thefts from the Metro Liquor Store in Brentwood have Central Saanich police investigating. On Thursday, June 21 at 3:30 p.m. two male suspects entered the store and as one distracted the clerk, the other made off with two bottles of hard liquor. The next day at the same time, a single male fitting the description of one of the suspects entered the store, picked up the same type of hard liquor and took off on foot. Police have identified suspects using video surveillance footage.

LETTERS Sidney’s support of business development gets notice On behalf of the newly formed Sidney Business Development Group, I would like to sincerely express appreciation to mayor and council for their support by approving a request for funding to create a business development plan for Sidney. Earlier this year our mayor stated how important it is for the business community to come together and work towards a common goal to promote our town, then mayor and council allotted an economic development fund within their budget to support initiatives that aid in the promotion of the community. This organization represents a range of retail merchants, professional services, accommodations, restaurants and attractions, and has a clear purpose to identify potential business development models that will bring collaboration to the promotion of our community. Parts of the process will be to seek out success stories from similar communities and to learn the needs of property owners and business operators within our town. The group has support from the Community Development Commission, the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, the
Sidney Merchants’ Co-op and now with gracious support from mayor and council we can create and implement a customized, collaborative action plan that encompasses all the wonderful features of Sidney. Erin Bremner D.G. Bremner & Co. menswear
We need that proposed overpass at Beacon Avenue At the intersection of Beacon Avenue and the Pat Bay Highway, many traffic accidents occur – it is reportedly in the top three of the most dangerous intersections on the Peninsula. An overpass was proposed at that intersection, but opposition killed it. As a result an overpass was constructed at Wain Road and the Pat Bay Highway. Are those who opposed the intersection being situated on Beacon Avenue indemnifying the damage? Alex Salie North Saanich
And in CS, pedestrians forced into battle with traffic I crossed Mount Newton X Road on
East Saanich as a pedestrian twice in one day walking to and from the post office. I was almost hit both times by cars whose drivers do not seem to understand that pedestrians have the right of way. A pedestrian should never have to share their lane with an automobile while they are in a crosswalk. To be fair one driver waved at me as she almost hit me, I suppose if one is hit by a car it will feel better laying in the hospital bed if it was a “friendly” hit. From a pedestrian perspective the intersection is probably the worst one in the three municipalities. Actually Central Saanich has the distinction of being by far the least pedestrian friendly municipality compared to North Saanich and Sidney. Repeated concerns have been filed with the police in Central Saanich and the police still do nothing to control the intersection. The reason can not be they don’t have the resources as it costs twice as much to police Central Saanich than either Sidney or North Saanich. The police attitude to pedestrians in Central Saanich is no better than the Central Saanich municipal staff who almost appear to be encouraging vehicles to park on some of the nearly constructed walking paths along East Saanich.
It may surprise staff, but the money provided by the senior levels of government for the construction was for pedestrians and cyclists (healthy communities), not for overflow parking for multi-car families. Norm Ryder Central Saanich
Laws against drinking drivers still not tough enough Again and again, we see teens expressing their sadness at losing a friend because of someone drinking and driving. There is always piles of flowers to express their grief at the site and lots of nice words about the one killed. But is it not time they learned you cannot drink and drive? It is hard to fathom why the province continues to make drinking and driving easier to do. Fines need to be harsher. Instead, it’s only a slap on the wrist. The public will never learn, unless this government gets tough with drinking drivers every day of the week. Very few drinking drivers are getting the message. Stop drinking drivers with tougher laws.

Mosquitos own the city Richard Hyde Contributor
Monday brought the end of an amazing season for the Peninsula Minor Baseball Associationâ€™s mosquito Red Sox. They won the Greater Victoria Baseball Association City Championships in their division after taking the park championship against Esquimalt Green Hornets and then beating Triangle team in the city semifinals. Peninsula lost the toss and were playing on home turf, so were the visiting team for the game. Some thought this a bad omen for the team, but destiny would prove this not to be the case. Peninsula faced the Gordon Head Grenades in the final game at Rotary Park. The Red Sox got off to a shaky start with just one run in the top of the first. Then the enormity of the task of pitching was on the shoulders of opening pitcher Brennan Williams. Gordon Head proceeded to load the bases and run in the limit of four runs. Williams was visibly upset leaving the mound at the bottom of the first with the score at 4-1 for Gordon Head.
The Red Sox then answered back with three runs of their own in the top of the second and Williams settled back into his normal groove and struck out Gordon Head to tie the game 4-4. It was a tight game until the end. Up for the final bat of the game, Gordon Head started well with their opening batter stealing his way around for one run. Peninsulaâ€™s head coach Dave Harris conferred with his assistants and decided to change Gurvir Baidwan for closing pitcher and the current catcher Rhys Hill. He threw just seven balls at two batters â€“ six of them strikes. â€œIt was fun from the start [of the season] and after winning the park championship it got better,â€? Harris said. â€œAll the kids contributed night after night with big hits and great plays in the field, along with the great attitudes of them all we were able to bring the City Championship trophy to the Peninsula for the first time ever at this level.â€? This Red Sox team is the first Peninsula team to make it to the City Championships and win it. email@example.com
Cricketer reviving a university sport UVic student leads university cricket tournament Travis Paterson News staff
Where Ram Meyyappan goes, so does cricket. There are few greater advocates for the game than Meyyappan, a 25-year-old bachelor of math and commerce student at the University of Victoria. The worldâ€™s second most popular sport has followed him from
Chennai, India, to Victoria, and heâ€™s behind the gameâ€™s revival as a university sport. He started a school team when he arrived at Malaspina College in 2006 which played a couple of matches against a club from UBC. He did it again when he enrolled at UVic in 2009, and this weekend the club team is hosting its first university-level tournament. Itâ€™s not the first university cricket club in town, but itâ€™s the first in a long time. â€œOnce when I got [to the Island], I kept track of the sport [back home] through the Inter-
net and I missed playing and watching [live]. With enough interest at UVic, I figured, why not have a club there?â€? Visiting this weekend are club teams from the University of Fraser Valley, Kwantlen Polytechnic University and the University of Calgary. Theyâ€™ll play a round robin tourney at Beacon Hill Park and Windsor Park, with matches at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday (July 1) and Monday, with the top two teams facing each other in Mondayâ€™s final, 2 p.m. at Beacon Hill. firstname.lastname@example.org

Iroquois Park reopens after year of improvements
The SS Iroquois leaves the dock in Sidney. Iroquois sank in 1911, taking 10 lives. The Sidney park reopening tomorrow is named after the ship to commemorate those who died. Its original propeller stands near the park.
Erin Cardone News staff
More than a year after the first shovels hit the dirt, the fully revamped Iroquois Park will open tomorrow. “I’m biased, but it’s absolutely beautiful,” said Coun. Kenny Podmore. Tomorrow, June 30, the Town of Sidney hosts an official opening ceremony for the park, emceed by Podmore. The new park includes a water spray park, a change room and washrooms, sports court, putting green, a refurbished pond with waterfalls and walkways. The Sidney Lions food bank relocated to the park property last year. Work on the site began in April 2011 with a budget of $2.9 million, including government contributions from Ottawa and the
province of just over $750,000. About a month after the groundbreaking ceremony, Sidney council of the day cut back on the budget, eliminating $400,000 in costs. Tomorrow, Mayor Larry Cross will lead a procession of local mascots into the park at 10:45 a.m. and speeches by federal and provincial dignitaries start at 11. Then 13 Sidney elemen
tary students will be the first ones to test out the water spray park. There will also be games by Sidney Rotary Club on hand, music and a Sidney Lions Club concession stand. The park’s namesake, SS Iroquois, sank on April 10, 1911. The steamship left dock in Sidney and 15 minutes later took on water, taking 10 souls with it. email@example.com

Juno Awards bid closer with Sidney pledge
Incumbents re-elected to Pen Co-op board
Erin Cardone News staff
Just a few pieces are missing from the puzzle that could bring the 2014 Juno Awards to Greater Victoria. Sidney agreed to contribute $1 per resident, or around $12,000 to the push at its council meeting Monday. Sidney is the 12th of the Capital region’s 13 municipalities to promise money for the bid. Sooke remains a missing link in the equation. Its council has offered a letter of support for the cause in principle, but
hasn’t offered any financial aid. As of Monday, the Capital Region Music Awards Society has $427,000 of the $450,000 it needs to move ahead with its bid for the awards, proposed for March or April 2014. The province offered a grant of $50,000 to round out the $500,000 required to submit a bid to the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences to become the host city. The 2014 host city is expected to be announced sometime this fall. The B.C. government also offered an
extra $1.5 million, should Victoria’s bid be successful, to host the awards. Chris Coleman from the Capital Region Music Awards Society said the plan is to celebrate the Junos with lead-up events over the next two years if successful, plus have 10 days to two weeks of musicthemed events around the awards. The majority of performances would be centred at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, with family-oriented festivities planned for the Mary Winspear Centre. email@example.com

Attractions launch tourist bus Devon MacKenzie News staff

The Peninsula Attractions Connector, which launched on Wednesday, June 27, is a partnership between the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse, Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, Victoria Butterfly Gardens and the Butchart Gardens. “It’s just fantastic,” said Kristin Jordan, owner of Sea Cider. “It’s really the culmination of two years of a lot of work, a lot of volunteer time, a lot of hours, a lot of ideas on the table and a great partnership.” The shuttle service is being run by CVS Cruise
Victoria who operate their fleet using a bio-diesel fuel blend. For $9.95 the shuttle will take visitors from B.C. Ferries on select schedules and Washington State Ferries to Butchart’s, Butterfly Gardens, Sea Cider, the Ocean Discovery Centre and Tanner’s Books. Riders can upgrade to an Attractions Pass for $29.95 and receive admission to any two experiences of Butterfly Gardens, Sea Cider tasting or Shaw Ocean Discovery and ride the connector shuttle for free. Include all three attractions for only $10 more, or add Butchart’s for $29.60. The shuttle will run daily in the peak tourism season of July and August.

When Landon Underwood came across a movie he identified with, he figured it was something worth sharing. “It seems pretty inspirational,” he said. The 13-year-old lacrosse fanatic stumbled across a trailer for Crooked Arrows, a newly released film about lacrosse with a strong local connection and told his dad, Pauquachin chief Bruce Underwood about it. The teen couldn’t find any cinemas playing the movie locally so his dad encouraged him to take action. “It wasn’t anywhere in Victoria, it was only in Vancouver,” Landon said. He went to see Sandy Oliver at Star Cinema.

Bond funds, far as it applies to registered comprised of many individual holdings, such as RRSPs,
RRIFs, TFSAs, RESPs, or RDSPs â€“ because taxes are a non-issue with respect to the interest earned. However, for non-registered portfolios, one should generally avoid investments which generate interest. This would include bonds or bond funds. For non-registered portfolios, the investor can consider Canadian-preferred share holdings as a substitute for bonds in his fixed-income component. These pay a dividend, rather than interest. Dividend payments from Canadian corporations are eligible for a dividend tax credit, which dramatically lowers the tax impact. In B.C., an individual can earn up to $41,000 in a year before the dividend portion of such income attracts tax. Interest income on the other hand would be taxed in the same manner as employment income â€“ at the investorâ€™s tax rate. Again as with bond-based investments, for maximum safety through diversification, consideration should be given to Canadian funds which often hold a large cross-section of corporate preferred shares. Even in todayâ€™s low-interest environment, a dividend yield approaching five per cent is possible with such products. An appropriate proportion of fixed-income products should exist in every portfolio. However, as interest rates begin to increase, our choices of specific investment products must strive to carefully reduce the emerging risk to capital values.

Do your homework before buying or selling a house. Selling or buying a new house can be a complicated process and involves a lot of planning - and often a little ingenuity, too. Considering the size of the investment you have made in your house, itâ€™s worth your while to take the time to learn how to protect it and yourself. Here are some tips to get you started: Show your house in its best light. Your house might be competing against others in the area, so youâ€™ll want to give yourself every possible advantage. A clean house makes a good impression and shows that the house has been well looked after. Itâ€™s what buyers want to see. A fresh coat of paint and some light decor can revitalize the interior and make it attractive and appealing. It presents a positive image of your house and can help make for a successful sale. Stay informed about housing market conditions. Do your research and learn what factors affect the housing market and the prices in the neighbourhood. Understand how they would apply to your house, either buying or selling it. Scan the news, real estate magazines, the Internet and any other related resources. Itâ€™s also beneficial to consult with industry professionals; mortgage brokers and realtors can advise and assist you with pricing, market conditions, financial processes and legal requirements. Confirm that your insurance coverage is current. If youâ€™re having an open house, ensure your home and

possessions are protected. Safely store valuables whenever you are having people passing through the house in your absence, and confirm that your insurance is both valid, and provides proper coverage for your house, personal belongings and liability.

day. North Saanich was approached in August 2011 by Sidney council with a request for ongoing donations toward the food bank’s utility costs and a one-time contribution to help the organization settle into its new location in Iroquois Park. Mayor Alice Finall said council gave the request consideration in August, but they were unsure of the municipality’s budget at that point. The final annual report was presented at Monday’s meeting and the motion was passed unanimously to cost-share the food bank with Sidney and Central Saanich.

“We’re very pleased we’ve been able to assist with cost-sharing the food bank with the two other municipalities,” said Finall, who also highlighted the municipality’s donation of fresh food to the cause. “We will again be donating our excess fresh food from our gardens at the hall to the food bank,” Finall said of the garden on municipal hall’s grounds. “In a few weeks we should have lettuce and we’re hoping to have lots of fruit from the orchard this year as well.” For 2012 the municipality will contribute $3,800 to the projected operating costs of the food bank and will also make a one-time contribution in the sum of $12,500 for bank relocation costs – the same amount contributed by Central Saanich. The food bank pays $1 a year rent for the building at Iroquois Park. The Town of Sidney covers the majority of costs for the food bank. reporter@peninsulanews review.com

MILLER, Thomas (Roy) Born August 2, 1921 in Battleford, SK. Passed away June 11, 2012 in Sidney, BC. Roy is survived by his wife and partner of 31 years, Sylvia Thistle-Miller; his brother, Bill; sons, Stephen (Julie) and Michael (Chris); daughters, Marilyn and Patricia; stepdaughter, Shannon (Jay); nieces and nephews; grandchildren and great-grandchild. Roy was very hard working and played just as hard; his motto was â€œto play hard you have to work for it.â€? He founded Triangle Service Station at the Oak Bay Junction in 1950 and in 1956 hauled the Islandâ€™s ďŹ rst travel trailer from the U.S. to Victoria and put it on display at his service station. He was very passionate about his business and capitalized on the growing trend towards family adventure camping. He expanded into mobile homes and parks eventually spanning eight lots throughout BC and Saskatchewan. Roy was deeply committed to the RV lifestyle and established Triangle RV Centre in Sidney as his business hub. Roy was a proud Rotarian, and believed in supporting the RVDA, local business, the community and he served on dealer councils for both Canadian and U.S. RV manufacturers. Roy had been an accomplished pilot and yachtsman and remained true to his passion for RVâ€™ing, exotic cars and his beloved dogs. He loved racing and supported local drivers including Gary Kershaw and currently Ed Hutchinson, sponsoring the race car, Flashpoint Racing and the FireďŹ ghtersâ€™ Burn Fund. He believed in living life large, with one foot in the future. His laughter and stories will long be remembered by his many friends, employees and business associates. Royâ€™s passing was eased by the compassion and care provided by the nurses, aides and support staff of the Sidney Care Home; there are not enough thanks we can express for these people. In accordance with Royâ€™s wishes a private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of ďŹ‚owers, donations can be made to the NANA Foundation Charity for Local Animals at (250)-477-2062. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.mccallbros.com.
In loving memory
