Looking upstream to clean the Gorge Habitat Acquisition Trust works to clean up Craigflower Watershed Kyle Wells News staff

A new effort is being made to clean up the Gorge by focusing on areas upstream from the actual waterway. Since the mid-1990s, most of the effort to clean up the Gorge has been focused on removing septic tanks leaching into the water. Now the Habitat Acquisition Trust is promoting better water and runoff management for the creeks and watersheds that feed the Gorge. “In the ‘70s and ‘80s it got quite a bad reputation for being a bit of a cesspool waterway,” land care co-ordinator Todd Carnahan said. “It is a swimmable place today as a result of all the community effort.” A large portion of the Craigflower Watershed – roughly the area between Mount Work and Thetis Lake – drains into the Gorge and Portage Inlet. Carnahan said that with increased development there are increased diversions to waterways through ditching and storm drainage. Development leads to runoff, which then collects sediments and contaminants (such as oil from cars) and runs directly into the waterway instead of being absorbed and filtered by plants and soil. “They act like a kidney, filtering out the water before it gets into the main stem,” Carnahan said. “We really have to do something now because it’s a bit of a bottleneck as a result of development.” His group’s Good Neighbours project is working with homeowners to make their properties more water friendly.

The Craigflower Watershed includes Craigflower Creek, above. One thing homeowners can do is plant more native vegetation rather than expanding their lawn. In some circumstances, even disconnecting a down spout from the home’s gutters and redirecting water into forest soils is more environmentally friendly than having it go straight into storm drains. “These are the people that I’m trying to reach, the ones that are upstream of the Gorge, that can actually have an influence on water quality,” Carnahan said. “We’d be very interested in hearing from folks that live in the Craigflower area and would like to learn more about their property.” A consultation from the Habitat Acquisition Trust’s Good Neighbours program is free, confidential and non-binding. The group will help with landscaping tips that are both beneficial for the homeowner and the environment. “We can provide a vision for people as a goal for their land management strategy,” Carnahan said. “If we can appeal to people’s desires and wants then we’re also going to have the result of improved water quality for all those other residents of the watershed.” For more information, visit hat.bc.ca or call Carnahan at 250-995-2428. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

James Smith pleads guilty in Goldstream fuel truck crash Sentencing likely to come down in September Kyle Wells News staff

James Charles Allen Smith pleaded guilty to two charges in the Western Communities Courthouse on Thursday (June 28) related to last year’s fuel truck crash outside Goldstream Park. Smith pleaded guilty to one regulatory charge under the Fisheries Act for depositing gasoline and diesel into water frequented by fish. On his criminal charges, Smith pleaded guilty to dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. Smith was originally charged with four other counts (two criminal, two environmental) which will be stayed following sentencing. Neither Smith nor his lawyer, Dale Marshall, would comment outside the courthouse, with Marshall saying he will wait until sentencing, likely in September, before making a statement. Marshall did say that Smith is “struggling� with the charges. The case is due back in court on Aug. 28 for a pre-sentencing report. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com BEST BUY - CORRECTION NOTICE

Charla Huber/News staff

Richard Jones, left, Martin Paish and Stephanie Dunlop are helping organize this year’s Bite Me fishing derby at Pedder Bay in Metchosin.

Onboard for Bite Me Charla Huber News staff

The fish counts are up and the Bite Me fishing derby is scheduled to carry on as planned for Aug. 11-12 . There was never any question if the derby would be held, but some anglers were nervous after the cancellation of the Juan de Fuca fishing derby earlier this year because of concerns over low fish stocks. “People should be aware the Bite Me derby coincides with peak migration with the most abundance of chinook stock in the province,” said Martin Paish, member of Bite Me derby and manager of Pedder Bay RV Resort and Marina. Each year, about 350 anglers launch from the Metchosin marina in search of the big one. This year, the first contestant to reel in a salmon 43 pounds or larger will be awarded $2,000. If the prize is not awarded, the pot will be doubled for next year. Aside from the big winner, numerous other

prizes will be given out to participants. “No one goes home empty-handed,” Paish said. The Metchosin Volunteer Fire Department hosts an awards barbecue for the derby at the fire hall. Advance ticket sales are available for one day only on July 10, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Loghouse Pub, 2323 Millstream Rd. Tickets will also be available at Pedder Bay Marina starting July 15. reporter@goldstreamgazette.com

History of Bite Me Former Metchosin fire Chief Laurie Spears and former Lieut. Richard Jones founded the Bite Me fishing derby 18 years ago. The derby was initially a small in-house fishing event for members and friends of the Metchosin Volunteer Fire Department. A total of $118,000 has been donated to the Pacific Salmon Foundation. The money goes to several hatcheries including the Goldstream Hatchery.

Sex abuse case against priest set for July The case against a former Catholic priest accused of sexually abusing minors in Saanich will head to a voir dire phase of court proceedings in July. Philip Jacobs served as a parish priest at St. Joseph the Worker on Burnside Road West from 1998 to 2002. A pretrial conference last week in Victoria Supreme Court set a date for the voir dire – a hearing to examine evidence or witness competency – for July 23. In July 2010, Jacobs was charged with sexual assault, two counts of sexual interference of a person under 14 and touching a young person for a sexual purpose. The charges involve three minors under 14, with alleged incidents spanning September 1996 to June 2001, all within Saanich. He was arrested Aug. 4, 2010 and released on $25,000 bail. Jacobs worked parttime from 1996 to 1998 at St. Rose of Lima in Sooke before taking the position of parish priest at St. Joseph the Worker.

Philip Jacobs The Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria hired Jacobs despite knowing he had been relieved of his duties at a church in Columbus, Ohio, in the early 1990s after admitting to inappropriately touching a teenage boy in the 1980s. In a press release from 2002 regarding hiring Jacobs, the diocese had deemed “Jacobs was not a pedophile nor an abuser and he was no threat in the future.” After he was arrested in 2010, the diocese noted that it had tightened its hiring practices in 2005. Saanich police said Jacobs was investigated as early as 2002 on allegations of abuse, but didn’t have enough evidence to recommend charges. -files from Kyle Slavin

Transit levies shelved for now Leaders say costly transit projects need regional voice Erin McCracken News staff

The region’s leaders are not yet ready to pick and choose from a new list of money pots that could finance a proposed $950-million light-rail rapid transit system, and other transit improvement projects in the region. Instead, the Capital Regional District Transportation Select Committee decided last Wednesday (June 27) to wait for an independent review of B.C. Transit to wrap up in August before making a decision. That may lead the province to give the CRD control of Greater Victoria’s transit system, a regional voice that many leaders say is needed to manage such a big-ticket LRT project. Committee members reviewed a draft report that outlines 17 possible funding sources. Fees on non-residential parking spaces, vehicles registered in the region and levies collected from the workers of larger employers were identified as the big money-makers. Saanich Mayor and committee chair Frank Leonard said there appeared to be little appetite around the committee table to discuss specific ways to pay for an LRT project that is years away from happening. “People want to talk about the project, but no one wants to talk about funding it with taxes.”

One of the only committee members to directly discuss the merits of the proposed options, Victoria Coun. Marianne Alto said most people who pay for vehicle registration wouldn’t balk at paying an additional $5. Others at the table voiced the need to start saving money for future transit projects now. Victoria Mayor and committee vice-chair Dean Fortin again championed the benefits of pumping a new local gas tax directly into a fund that would pay for the local share of rapid transit. “It might be 10 years, it might be 15 years, but when you know that our local share will be in the $250-million mark of a $750-million project (for a partial build-out of LRT), then wouldn’t it be nice to know that we actually have one-third or half of that already in there?” Fortin said. Following the meeting, Leonard disagreed, preferring that people in the future pay for the local share of the transit project if and when it becomes reality. “I don’t think we should tax people now for a project in the future,” he said. “I don’t think we should increase taxes right now to build up a piggy bank.” Taking out a loan is “reasonable” to help pay for a large-scale capital project, he said, adding taxpayers of the day could pay for the project over a 10- to 15-year period. Next steps include finalizing the funding-options report, and then posting it on the CRD’s website for public input, in August or September. emccracken@vicnews.com

Ticket to ride: Q The Capital Region’s public transit system costs about $100 million a year, and is covered by $34.8 million in fares, $34.4 million from the province and $29.9 million in local property and fuel taxes.

Q Future transit improvements are projected to cost an extra $1 billion over 20 years. Divided equally between the region and provincial and federal governments, Greater Victoria would need to generate an extra $15 million per year – a 50-per-cent hike over current costs.

OUR VIEW

Accept others’ differences Pride Week is in full-swing across the region but we can’t help but wonder about the pall cast by an ugly incident in downtown Victoria before the festivities officially got underway. A man dropped bullet shell casings at the feet of individuals standing in front of a gay nightclub, and used homophobic epithets, leading the Victoria police to categorize the incident as a hate crime. Of course, it’s wrong to see that one incident as proof of a general lack of intolerance in society. Instead, the fact this case was so openly and universally denounced suggests we’ve come a long way as a community in dispensing with biases and stigmas against people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer or questioning. Acceptance, inclusivity and the empowerment of people, no matter what their sexual orientation or gender conflict, are some of the motivating factors behind the annual Pride Week activities. Pride Week, with its colourful, flamboyant parade, rollicking softball game and other events, was once a curiosity to the general public. Now it’s simply another fun, family friendly activity on a busy summer calendar of events in Victoria. Speaking of summer, gay tourism is actively promoted for the region. Tourism Victoria has a full page of links to LGBTQ-friendly sites, entertainment and resources in the area. With numerous local clubs and organizations catering to the LGBTQ community, and school districts and post-secondary institutions spending more time creating an environment of acceptance for all students, it seems Greater Victoria is becoming a safer place to be gay. While some might hold up the insensitive and angry actions of one person as evidence of widespread intolerance, we don’t think that’s the case. Let’s choose to celebrate the fact that more people are finding the courage to come out to a community that’s much more understanding of the importance of accepting each of us for who we are.

The proposition for them will boil down to this: You can pay more or you can have fewer sailings. And where the boat is a third full, you will have fewer sailings. This consultation period is an opportunity to ask some hard questions. For instance, does Salt Spring Island really need three ferry terminals? And why is there no passenger-only service? Macatee’s term as commissioner started with a detailed review last year that pointed to some other ways to save serious money. But CEO Corrigan says there are no quick fixes. FortisBC has offered an $11-million incentive for conversion of marine vessels to natural gas, which would give the fleet significant relief from spiraling fuel costs. But a ferry conversion would take six months or more, and another ship would be needed in the meantime. Another promising suggestion is overhauling the ferry reservation service, making reservations free and charging extra for those who just show up. Corrigan says a computer reservation overhaul now underway will take three years. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Loan for View Royal firehall a hot topic Alternative Approval Process an inappropriate approach The Alternative Approval Process (AAP) is a very easy way for the Town of View Royal to borrow $8 million for a new (was “firehall”) protective services building. We already owe $2.5 million for the land. The town only requires 10 per cent disapproval through this AAP to carry out this very expensive building. View Royal has a population of approximately 9,000 of which 7,700 are voters and 3,850 are residential taxpayers. This is far too rich for a town of this size. A scaled down version and less equipment at the firehall could/might be the answer. Needs versus wants. All elected politicians have limits on their powers and responsibilities. Let there, at least, be a referendum. Joan James View Royal

Royal didn’t understand that there would be a 12 per cent tax increase if the firehall loan were to proceed and that the method of voicing their opinion was to sign a form that disagreed with the loan (also something they were unaware of). In May, I also suggested that it would be helpful to provide some examples of an average tax bill and how it would be affected, however that wasn’t done. The main issue is that View Royal residents have not been provided with options and associated costs for various options for a new firehall/training centre, or with clear information about how the Alternative Approval Process works. Is it enough to say that “Residents are encouraged to find out more and make an informed decision” etc.? Why not clearly provide options? If there is a referendum, will there still be lack of clarity? Lynn Elwell View Royal

View Royal residents deserve more options for firehall

Council is doing exactly what they were elected to do

After reading the Gazette article about “firehall misinformation” (“Fact or fiction?” June 29), I must say that there is also misinformation in what is being presented by Coun. David Screech. Perhaps if View Royal had provided more detailed information in the brochure that was sent to all residents, then there would be no need to make assumptions about what is meant by a “12 per cent tax increase”. Twelve per cent does seem quite high compared to increases in other municipalities. I very much doubt that the information circulated by a group of concerned residents falls into the category of “knowingly distributing false information,” because it was so difficult to finally get correct information in my own case. While I wasn’t involved in putting the “misinformation” together, I can confirm that it took me quite some time and many questions on my part, to find out what exactly was meant by a 12 per cent tax increase and what part of our taxes would be affected. I started asking this question on May 11, well before the brochure was sent out. I finally received a clear answer on June 25. In my May email I had suggested that most people I had talked with in View

After receiving a few emails describing the Alternative Approval Process as undemocratic I felt it was time someone spoke up in support of our council’s proposal. The new fire hall was an election issue last November and the majority of the elected council (at least four of the five) stated that they were in favour of the plan to build the new public security building on the planned site. They were very open about this during the election and during the planning process over the previous year. Our fire services are also good quality and are provided at a very reasonable cost. Of View Royal’s 6,969 eligible voters, 27 per cent (1,943 votes) of the residents turned out to cast their vote for council. The average councillor in View Royal was elected by a mere 17 per cent of the electorate or 1,183 votes. This reflects the low level of electorate engagement in the Town of View Royal or anywhere in the Captial Regional District for that matter. Taking this to a referendum will not be a representative vote. History has shown that mostly people with strong opinions get involved in community matters – and usually if they are against what is being proposed.

The proposed path being taken by council is, in my opinion, the best option under the acceptable democratic processes available to them. My prediction on a referendum: the town will spend $25,000 for the referendum and less than 500 votes will be cast. Turn out will be dismal as the referendum will not be accompanied by a vote for council. The “no”s will win by a slim margin, resulting in less than 300 voters making the decision for the whole community. Personally, I voted for most of these councillors to do the job they campaigned to do – one was to replace the fire hall. I don’t want my vote in the last election to go “out the door,” so to speak. In my opinion, council has done an excellent job in analyzing the options and informing and trying to engage the public on what they are doing. There have been multiple open houses, a very informative website, mail outs to each household and ads in the local newspaper. I support council’s actions and direction. Colin Fraser View Royal

Fire department is excellent but firehall costs are too high No one could ever complain about our View Royal fire department or the services provided. At present every property pays an equal share and receives identical attention as required. Council’s proposal to borrow over $8 million for a new firehall to be repaid by a few thousand property owners is far too extravagant. Since the current costs of fire protection are paid at a flat rate, why has the town devised this unequal Byzantine loan repayment plan, based on individual property values? Some owners of homes have lived there for decades, long before the values rose to current levels. Homeowners with children have concerns with their mortgage payments while retired folk observe their pension income disintegrating or vanishing. The proposed inequitable charge for an equal service is unfair both to the taxpayer and a fine fire department. Anthony Miller View Royal

Tolerance to bright light If you wear glasses or contact lenses and have a low tolerance to bright light, you may want to consider getting properly prescribed sunglasses for your vision comfort. Your eyebrows, eyelids, and iris, which is the coloured part of the eye, offer some protection from sunlight and glare, but if bright or glaring light bothers your eyes, you may need the added protection of sunglasses. Certain occupations such as outside work or driving may benefit from sunglass protection. Sunlight provides the light we need to see objects clearly, but it also emits two invisible forms of radiation, ultraviolet and infrared rays. A low tolerance to bright light or over-exposure to the rays of the sun may cause minor eye irritation while prolonged exposure may cause more serious problems. You want to be able to see clearly and comfortably no matter what the light conditions and you also want to protect your eyes. Ask your eye doctor as to which sunglass is the most appropriate for you.

NEW WESTSHORE CLINIC: Blood donor clinic runs August 2, September 27, and November 22 from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Located at the Church of the Advent 510 Mount View Avenue (off Sooke Road)

RALLY TOGETHER TO SAVE LIVES

IIt ttakes k many d donors tto save a life.

Are you the type to save a life? Blood is used every day to treat patients with bleeding disorders, individuals undergoing surgery, transplant recipients, cancer patients, newborn babies, trauma patients such as motor collision victims and many others. It takes many donors to save a life. Together, we can improve or save the life of a hospital patient so they can return home to their family and friends. Together, we can help someone in our community recover from a life-threatening accident or illness. There are plenty of opportunities to donate this summer. It only takes about an hour to donate and chances are there is a blood donor clinic nearby. Book an appointment online today at www.blood.ca or 1 888 2 DONATE ). (1-888-236-6283).

Canadian Blood Services is asking communities across the country to join together this summer under the theme Rally Together to Save Lives. Vancouver Island residents have come together time and again to support others in need. Because blood has a short shelf life, Canadian Blood Services is in constant need of all blood types. Rallying together to donate blood can help ensure an adequate supply is available. “During the summer months, donors change their routines, take vacations and are involved with outdoor activities, so donating blood is not always top of mind,� said Michelle Stratford, event specialist with Canadian Blood Services, B.C. and Yukon.

As the highways ďŹ ll with summer vacationers, so too does the likelihood that accidents will occur. With the help of blood, many victims will survive.

CORPORATE CHALLENGE & BBQ EVENT Calling all businesses! Encourage your team to give the gift of life, be the best company, and win a FREE BBQ!

“But the need for blood does not take a summer vacation. There are still hospital patients requiring transfusions of blood products for surgeries, cancer treatments and other procedures. West Shore donors can save lives this summer and we hope they’ll roll up their sleeves to help.�

On August 2nd the West Shore clinic will host a fun corporate challenge to help encourage people to give. The business who donates the most blood on that day will win a fabulous free barbeque event at West Coast Tap House at the Four Points by Sheraton Victoria Gateway Hotel. Voted one of 2011’s top 20 new eateries, West Coast Tap House will host the winning company on their amazing patio.

Get your co-workers to come out and donate! For more information or to receive materials to get your team on board, contact Michelle Stratford, Canadian Blood Services at 250-405-4307 07

Donating for the ďŹ rst time?

OPTIONS FOR VOLUNTEERS

First time blood donors often have questions or concerns about eligibility and what to expect before, during, and after they give. They’re often surprised how easy it is to donate blood and that it only takes about an hour. Donating blood can be a bit unnerving at ďŹ rst, but donors ease into it once they’re sitting comfortably in a chair beside other donors doing the same thing. Giving blood for the ďŹ rst time is a great conversation starter not to mention one of the most direct ways to help someone. Some donors rally their friends and family to visit a local blood donor clinic as a group. It gives them a chance to socialize and catch up, and also makes the experience of helping to save a life even more memorable. For eligibility or clinic information, to speak to a nurse or to book an appointment, call 1 888 2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283). Information is also available online at www.blood.ca

Volunteers play an important role in ensuring a strong blood system for Canadians. The supply of blood and blood products to patients in Canadian hospitals depends on the voluntary donations made by healthy people.

Meet the men who crew the boat on Canada Post’s new stamp Travis Paterson News staff

Kevin Kowalyk smiled from one side of his mouth when he saw Canada Post’s commemorative Rowing Canada stamp unveiled by fellow London-bound rowers Dave Calder and Morgan Jarvis. The stamp’s release, which depicts a men’s double scull, followed the formal introduction of Rowing Canada’s Olympic team at Elk Lake on Thursday. Crews from six of Canada’s seven Olympic boats were there, while the women’s heavyweight eight was officially confirmed at its Ontario training centre. As the stamp stood prominently on display, rowers from the country’s more established boats took the spotlight, such as the gold-medal-winning men’s eight, and the locally produced women’s double of Lindsay Jennerich and Patricia Obee. Meanwhile Kowalyk and his doubles partner Michael Braithwaite stood quitely among the remaining group of the 21 rowers. Ironcially, they’ll be manning the double scull depicted on the Olympic-themed stamp. “That’s totally our boat, so this is pretty cool,” Kowalyk said. Granted it’s not actually Kowalyk and Braithwaite depicted in the stamp, which was designed by Kosta Tsetsekas and Mike Savage of Vancouver-based Signals Design, and illustrated by Keith Martin. Kowalyk, 31, isn’t surprised at the lack of attention. “Back where I come from in Winnipeg, I don’t even think they know I exist.” The story of Kowalyk’s journey to becom-

At 25 years old, he was a typical Winnipegger, working sales in the oil industry and playing hockey at night. He was kickboxing, too. But a concussion limited him from both sports, and led to trying rowing for the first time. “I thought I was going kayaking. I had no idea what was ahead.” It took a while to get a knack for it but he loved it from the start. When the economy dimmed and his job became expendable, Kowalyk took the opportunity to enroll at the University of Manitoba and pour the rest of his energy into rowing. “I found myself in pretty good shape, but still didn’t make the cut in 2010, and I ran out of money. So I came back in 2011.” Up until that point, Kowalyk had literally coached himself. “The rowing (scene) in Winnipeg isn’t like here, so my prospects weren’t high.” Through domestic competitions he made his way into the men’s four, and helped qualify that boat for this summer’s Olympics, finishing seventh at the Rowing World Cup in Bled, Slovenia, in 2011. All he had to do was keep up his training,

Nine Wave players to rep B.C. Nine players from the Vancouver Island Wave rep program and local club

soccer teams will play for B.C. this summer. Greater Victoria’s under-13 player Sean Pearse (Gordon HeadSaanich Fusion), U14 players Max Branyik (Gordon Head-Saanich Fusion), Mackenzie Cole (Gorge) and Liam McManaman (Cordova Bay-Saanich Fusion), and U15 players Dory Blakely (Bays United), Ben Avila (Gordon HeadSaanich Fusion) and Josh Cuthbert (Lakehill-Prospect Lake) will all wear B.C. colours. Josh and his brother Elliott (U13) are heading to

Rowing 101 To scull is to row two oars, one in each hand. To sweep is to row one oar, on one side of the boat, using both hands. A four-person sculling boat is a quad, and the two-person a double, while sweeping boats are known by the number, such as the eight, four and pair.

and he was London-bound, but things happen, like pneumonia. When he caught the debilitating lung infection in December, it knocked him out of the four. When he came back, he was isolated in a single scull, starting from scratch. Such is the life of a rower, and then some. “It’s funny because (Braithwaite) and I were roommates but were in different boats. Instead of trying to get back in the four, all of a sudden we were competing against each other for a spot in the double.” At 25, Braithwaite is the same age at which Kowalyk started. The Duncan native rowed varsity at the University of Toronto, and went on to win the men’s under-23 national championship in the single scull, and again in 2010 in the senior men’s category. Both relocated to Victoria early in 2011, the mainland in September to join the Vancouver Whitecaps residency program fulltime.

The 21-year-old Highlands resident was named to multiple awards, including player of the year for the Dakota Athletic Conference, as first baseman for the Jamestown College Jimmies.

and soon rented a place together, typical of the national rowers who come to Elk Lake’s training centre. But things went from brotherly to awkward this spring, cramping their homespace. During trials in March and April, Kowalyk and Braithwaite were part of a doubles matrix, with Fraser Berkhout and Steve Van Knotsenburg. Unless Kowalyk and Braithwaite finished first and second in the matrix rankings – which they eventually did, respectively – each was at risk of eliminating the other’s Olympic dream. “It could have been worse. There was some tension, but really, the only effect was we didn’t speak as much during that time,” Braithwaite said. And it’s all good now, to the point where Braithwaite wonders if they’d be doing as well if they hadn’t established the chemistry they have. “My goal was to get set up for the next quadrennial by making a push for this summer’s Olympics, with (Rio de Janeiro 2016) being the ultimate goal,” Braithwaite said. “(London) is just icing on the cake.” “I’m pretty confident (Braithwaite) will get me where I want to go,” Kowalyk said. sports@vicnews.com

Johnson, who graduated from Lambrick Park’s baseball academy and Devils Fastball Club, finished her third year of colllege ball as a first team all-star for the entire Association of Independent Institutions conference of the NAIA, as well as being a Dakota conference first team all-star and gold glove winner. Johnson hit .378 with 10 home runs and 59 RBI, and set two school records, one for her 22-game hitting streak and another for hitting eight RBI in one game.

Lacrosse film to play in Sidney

Walk-In Denture Clinic

Teen hopes to share history of his people’s sport

WHY WAIT? WE CAN HELP NOW!

Erin Cardone News staff

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. “I asked if she could bring in

Crooked Arrows.” And she did. “I think it’s pretty cool,” Landon said. The film is scheduled to start screening Friday, July 6 and could run for about a week. “These are our lovely community members and they’ve been supportive of us for years,” Oliver said. “There are films that speak to individuals and communities [and] that’s what we’re here for.” And there’s that local tie-in. Gary Gait, known as the best lacrosse player of all time with his twin, Paul, is featured in the film. Gait played for the Peninsula Warriors and attended Claremont secondary school. He played for the Victoria Shamrocks before starring in the National Lacrosse League, Major League Lacrosse and the Canadian national team. Gait has been inducted into the United States Lacrosse National Hall of Fame and the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame.

Dodgeball goes outside The Victoria Dodgeball Championship is too big for its britches, and is moving outside.

Alzheimer Society seeks volunteers West Shore residents have opportunity to get involved Kyle Wells News staff

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is sending a call out to West Shore residents who want to experience the rewarding task of making a difference in people’s lives. Volunteers are needed to help the society with everything from making phone calls to working as caregivers to facilitating support groups.

Volunteers are especially needed for support groups and education programs, run throughout Greater Victoria including the West Shore. There are a few basic requirements for volunteers doing those particular roles. The candidate must have excellent listening skills, knowledge of dementia (or a willingness to learn) and facilitation skills. Formal or informal caregiving experience is also an asset. More mature volunteers are ideal for the support groups. Younger volunteers are needed for other roles, but when helping older families in need, a volunteer with life experience is more effective. “A lot of the issues that come up can be difficult,” said regional support and education coordinator Meriel Randerson. “So (it’s best to have) somebody who is sensitive and feels they have the confidence to deal with somebody who’s crying and very stressed out.” West Shore residents who volunteer may not necessarily end up working on the West Shore, although the society does run programs here. “As long as they’re interested and willing, we have lots of different opportunities for volunteers and can offer a lot of variety and experience,” First Link co-ordinator Emily Pridham said. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact volunteer co-ordinator Julie Cameron at 250-3822052 or by email at jcameron@alzheimerbc.org. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

NEWS GAZETTE

Longtime grocery man honoured for lifetime in the business The grocery business is in Ernie Skinner’s blood, quite literally. He was well-known in Greater Victoria as one half of the Thrifty Foods braintrust, opening the first store with Alex Campbell in the Fairfield Plaza in 1977 and “retiring” in 1991 with seven stores and a warehouse in operation. Skinner continued to keep his eye out for opportunities to offer a new and unique way to provide the basics, and then some. It took until 1999 for his organic-specialty Market on Yates to come to fruition, so to speak.

The success of that venture led to his partnering with daughter Christine and son-in-law Darryl Hein in 2006 to open the Market on Millstream. It’s been nearly six decades since Skinner first donned a smock and worked the aisles at Safeway (he started in 1955). His long career and leadership in the industry prompted the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers to honour him recently with a Life Membership designation. Now 71 and involved to a lesser degree with the Market stores – “I review the

financial statements and so on” – Skinner attributes his love for the industry and the daily routine of the grocery business for his longevity. An early mentor at Safeway, Ron Olson, helped groom Skinner for future leadership, he said. “I fell in love with the industry and knew that I would someday own a store of my own, somewhere, somehow. He motivated me and today I’m still a great believer in mentoring.” In announcing Skinner as winner of one of four lifetime achievement awards for 2012, federation president and CEO John Scott called him “a true legend in the grocery industry.” “Ernie has made a significant footprint on the Canadian grocery industry

that will live on for a long time through his equally dedicated and motivated family,” Scott wrote. As for the opportunity to work with family to grow another company, Skinner both values it and Ernie enjoys it. Skinner “You nurture your children in life experiences, and now I have a chance to nurture them in business experiences,” he said. “But you have to be prepared to let go and have them learn their own lessons.” Despite being in a business that changes frequently and is highly competitive, with big-box stores putting pressure on smaller grocery retailers, he said it’s important to stay focused.

Misleading Information Being Circulated in the Community

POLICE CONSTABLE

Background In order to undertake the construction of a new Public Safety Building, the Town proposes to borrow up to Seven Million, Nine Hundred and Ninety Thousand Dollars ($7,990,000).

The Oak Bay Police Board invites applications for Constables with a minimum of 2 (two) years current police experience within the Province of B.C. Submit resume package to the

As part of the bylaw approval process related to this borrowing, Council decided to proceed with seeking the approval of the electors through the legislatively permitted Alternative Approval Process (AAP). That AAP permits electors to petition against the proposed bylaw through the submission of Alternative Approval Elector Response Forms. During the process, which has been ongoing for several weeks already, some members of the community – independent of Town Hall – have solicited opposition to the bylaw by canvassing the community, providing false and/or misleading information about the impact of the Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 826, 2012 if it were to be passed.

Chief Constable, Oak Bay Police Dept., 1703 Monterey Ave. Victoria, B.C. V8R 5V6 Closing date: July 17, 2012 The Oak Bay Police Dept. is committed to employment equity and encourages applications from qualified women and men including Aboriginal peoples and visible minorities.

www.oakbaypolice.org

Withdrawal of your AAP Form? If you think that you filled out an Alternative Approval Elector Response Form based on false and/ or misleading information, you are able to withdraw that Form until the deadline of July 11, 2012 at 4:00 PM. The ability to withdraw your Alternative Approval Elector Response Form exists whether you have provided that Form to the Town’s Corporate Officer OR to a neighbour or canvasser. To withdraw an Alternative Approval Elector Response Form, please come to Town Hall (45 View Royal Avenue, View Royal) with photo identification that includes your civic address and request to speak with the Corporate Officer or Deputy Corporate Officer. You will be asked to sign a request to withdraw your Form. If someone else has agreed to submit your completed Alternative Approval Elector Response Form to the Town and it has not yet been received by the Corporate Officer, you are still able to sign a request to withdraw your Form upon its receipt by the Corporate Officer.

Same Soul. Different Body. Celebrating 60 years in Canada

If you believe that someone may have filled out an Alternative Approval Elector Response Form on your behalf, you are invited to come to Town Hall (45 View Royal Avenue) and review the matter with the Corporate Officer or Deputy Corporate Officer. Please bring photo identification that includes your civic address with you. A Form submitted that you did not sign will be withdrawn. As well, you are able to provide a signed request to withdraw a Form should one be submitted by someone else in your name between the time of your visit to Town Hall and the deadline for receipt of the Forms. Alternative Approval Elector Response Forms Elector responses must be given in the form established by View Royal Council. Alternative Approval Elector Response Forms are available at View Royal Town Hall and also on the Town’s website (www.viewroyal.ca). The only persons entitled to sign the Alternative Approval Elector Response Forms are the eligible electors of the Town of View Royal.
