Density knocks at Sidney’s door Multifamily projects come to council Erin Cardone News staff

Two high density developments could be on the horizon for Sidney. In one, a five-story mixed use building with commercial space and 28 residential units including two below-market units is envisioned for Third Street. The other is 500 units in four buildings west of the Pat Bay highway.

POLICE NEWS IN BRIEF

Offshore fight with frying pan A frying pan was one of several weapons of choice during a domestic dispute July 3. The couple had been on the man’s boat in Tod Inlet when the woman allegedly began throwing dishes at him. She then hit the man in the head with a frying pan and stabbed him in the right thigh with a small kitchen knife. The pair then rowed a small boat to the marina at the end of Benvenuto Avenue. RCMP and Central Saanich police responded and found the woman hiding in the bushes. On the way to the scene, one Sidney North Saanich RCMP officer swerved the police cruiser to avoid a deer on Keating X Road and struck a power pole. The officer sustained minor injuries and B.C. Hydro attended to repair the damage to the pole.

SD63 to launch course-selling company International sale of high school courses could net district $1.2M next year

Two assaulted on Canada Day

Natalie North

Two incidents on Central Saanich buses saw police respond on Canada Day, July 1. In the first incident, a young man got off the bus around 11:15 p.m. followed by a group of teens. He walked down Mount Newton X Road when he was attacked by four teens. He was pushed into a ditch and punched. Police patrolled the surrounding areas but were not able to locate the group of teens. Just before midnight, another man was pushed to the ground, punched and kicked after getting off the bus. A suspect fled on foot but with help from witnesses the police arrested a 19-yearold Central Saanich man. He was charged with assault causing bodily harm and was released on a promise to appear in court.

The Saanich school district is going into business. With less cash coming in and more budgetary pressures than ever, the Saanich school district has come up with a business plan to generate funds through the sale of online high school level courses, called distributed learning courses. Monica Schulte, secretary treasurer for SD63, which stretches from Claremont secondary school to the northern tip of the Saanich Peninsula, began crafting the business company plan in the fall under direction from the Saanich board of

education. “We have those courses and now we want to be able to sell those internationally,” said Schulte. “In order for us to set up this distributed learning, we’ve had to be creative.” The district already sells online distributed learning courses to students within B.C., but in order to sell them internationally without contravening the School Act, they need to incorporate. International student enrolment fees will cover the initial startup costs. The overarching arm’s length company, School District No. 63 Business Company is independent from two smaller companies within the business plan: Saanich International Recruiting Services Inc. and Saanich International Distributed Learning Services Inc. The business company is projected to pull in an extra $1.22 million for the district next school year, $1.67 million the following year and $2.08 million

in 2014-15. The district’s budget advisory committee brought forward several possible avenues for mitigating the impact of declining enrolment and budgetary pressures. Among them were an extra week of spring break; an expanded international program; the start a business company; and off shore marketing. The formation of the business company is the first of the initiatives taken on by the current board. It was discussed at a special board meeting after the News Review’s deadline Thursday, July 5 and was expected to pass at that time. Between last school year and the reopening of classrooms in September, enrolment in the district is forecast to decline by about 350 students. “We’re trying a means to provide more support for our teachers, students and educational system than we can generate through the number of students we have,” said

Wayne Hunter, chair of the Saanich school district board of education. “It’s not something we’ve done on our own,” Hunter said. “We’ve taken professional advice and the experience of other districts that have gone down that path.” Schulte drew on significant legal and accounting advice, as well as the advice of districts with business companies in use, including the Central Okanagan school district where she previously served as director of finance. The plan isn’t indicative of a larger foray into business for the district, Hunter said. The Greater Victoria school district previously held a business company, which dissolved due to disuse in June 2009. It’s a possible revenue stream that board of education would be willing to consider in the future, should the issue make it to the table, said that board’s chairperson Peg Orcherton. nnorth@saanichnews.com

police officer forms an opinion that a driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired by alcohol. The driver is advised by the police officer that there are reasonable grounds to believe his or her ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired by alcohol and the driver is subsequently read the “breath demand.� The driver is detained and provided with access to a lawyer prior to providing samples into a breath testing instrument at the police station. The breath testing instrument is operated by a police officer who has received specialized training and is qualified in its use. At least two suitable samples of breath must be obtained and there are mandatory waiting periods for observation of the driver prior to and between each breath test to ensure accurate results. If the test results show the driver’s blood alcohol is over the legal limit of 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, or 0.08, he or she is released from custody with a court date to face criminal charges as well as an automatic 90 day driving prohibition

under the Motor Vehicle Act. Preparation of the court documents by the investigating officer can take a few hours to complete. To reduce alcohol-related motor vehicle deaths and effectively streamline the processes involved in penalizing impaired drivers, the B.C. government created immediate roadside prohibition legislation. This legislation was first introduced in September 2010, but required some changes and was retracted in November of 2011. On June 15 of this year the legislation was reintroduced with enhanced fairness for the driver both roadside and during the appeal process. Under this legislation, a police officer who suspects alcohol in a driver’s body can administer a roadside screening device and can issue an immediate roadside driving prohibition. The duration of the prohibition is for three, seven, 30 or 90 days depending upon the driver’s history of alcohol-related infractions and the concentration of alcohol in the driver’s blood. If a driver’s blood alcohol concentration is over the legal

limit, he or she will either be subject to a traditional criminal code driving investigation or an immediate 90 day roadside prohibition. With any of the roadside prohibitions the driver also faces administrative sanctions including fees for driver’s licence reinstatement, vehicle impoundment and having to enroll in an ignition interlock or responsible driver program. As the immediate roadside prohibition process is based in the Motor Vehicle Act, the driver does not acquire a criminal record. This legislation has enabled police officers to expeditiously process impaired drivers at the roadside and controls in the legislation ensure a high evidentiary standard is in place for police. Between September 2010 and November 2011, police in B.C. issued 27,802 immediate roadside prohibitions and saved an estimated 71 lives. With the reinstatement of the legislation, I anticipate this lifesaving trend will continue. Cpl. Erin Fraser is a supervisor and the media liaison officer for the Sidney North Saanich RCMP.

SBA pulled from market – again Erin Cardone News staff

The Town of Sidney is for the second time stepping between the summer market and the organization that runs it. In April, town council terminated the contract that allows the Sidney Business Association to run the market, as it has done for 12 years. When the SBA’s lawyer presented potential legal costs to the town, that decision was reversed. On Wednesday, the town gave six months’ notice to the SBA of the cancellation of their contract – a move in line with an agreement signed by both parties last fall. “After careful consideration, Sidney council has decided to terminate the existing agreement with the SBA and in doing so provide them the required six months’ notice,” Mayor Larry Cross said. “A key objective of Sidney council is to maintain the Sidney summer

market and ensure its long term success and sustainability. With this in mind, the town wants to work with the entire business community in unifying the energies in our downtown into a single, strong voice and the market is a critical component in achieving that objective.” Chief administrative officer Randy Humble said the town will issue a request for proposals from other organizations. They’ll also meet with members of the SBA, the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, the Sidney Merchants’ Co-op and the newly formed Sidney Business Development Group to discuss the market’s future. The SBA declined to comment until its board could meet today, July 6, after the News Review’s deadline. The town says this move will not disrupt this summer’s market. The Sidney summer market started June 7 and runs until the end of August, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Thursday on Beacon Avenue. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

OUR VIEW

Labour pains not over yet The provincial government is holding its breath these days, having settled contract negotiations with all but a few public sector unions and stayed the course on net zero. But how long can it keep up this magician’s act? At some point, organized May the days labour, led perhaps by a tagof the B.C. Government of net zero be team and Service Employees gone soon? Union and B.C. nurses, will stage a mass revolt against the no-raise, cupboard-is-bare philosophy. Some months ago, the province gave public sector employers such as post-secondary institutions the opportunity to receive modest wage increases, if the employer was able to find equivalent savings somewhere else in its operation. But increases in government grants to such bodies in recent years – they’re still playing catch-up from previously slashed funding – have done little more than match increases in operating expenses. Therefore, finding savings has become a little like finding a needle in a haystack. One of the province’s largest unions, the B.C. Government and Services Employees Union, even sought ways to save the government money to cover off modest wage increases for its members. But that doesn’t mean they’re in a conciliatory mood. The BCGEU’s one-day strike this week at the Liquor Distribution Branch in Victoria, held to protest any future privatization of that service, was a minor flexing of its muscle. More telling may have been the union’s stepping away from mediation at the bargaining table with the province last week, stating that no progress had been made in negotiations. They could be the wolf at the door for the lame-duck Liberals. Despite not having gone on a full strike for 20 years, the BCGEU still wields clout, as no one wants government services to shut down. While unions must be reasonable in their wage demands at this time, government needs to begin to offer some modest incentives for the people who work for them. Even if it’s a simple token of their esteem. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@peninsulanewsreview.com or fax 250-656-5526.

Projects that did survive tended to be marketed to people who live here – young families looking for a first home, seniors looking to downsize from a house, or young urbanites who can afford a modest condo. Projects such as Westhills and Kettle Creek Station can keep building through tough times because they offer what people can afford. Big commercial developments like Uptown and the new Capital City Centre say residential units will come when “market conditions” are right. Could be 10 years from now, could be never. Over the years, I’ve become a bit jaded on big developments that promise the world. Few, if any, deliver what they announce in terms of public amenities and often the time horizons for success are so long that they become perpetual construction zones. If Promontory rises 21 storeys into the sight line of my home, and they can sell their units, it will be a good economic indicator for the city. If it doesn’t, we can add it to the long casualty list of developments in Victoria. Edward Hill is the editor of the Saanich News. editor@saanichnews.com

municipal property tax as the tax most harmful to their business and this had grown from only 38 per cent six years ago. Municipal governments rely on property taxes for funding, and so increased spending requires higher property taxes. Business always pays a higher rate than residents, making them especially vulnerable to the impact of excess spending. Property taxes must be paid regardless of whether a business makes a penny in profit. Their property tax bill can be the difference between a business thriving, surviving or dying. In any case, it is not money being used for job creation, expansion or innovation. In Sidney, CFIB found the municipal tax gap rose over the last year to 2.77 from 2.65, and is now at the provincial average. This gap of more than two and a half to one

not think about the delays she caused with her attempts to admend the budget bill, or the new Quebec leader who speaks well, but never speaks of the mess in his own province? The media loves getting people all befuddled. Was Mr. Gee not aware that Canada is the only country in the world that has been able to weather this financial mess? We have our ducks all in a row, thanks to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. He has to constantly deal with buffoons who will do anything to get elected. Our PM is held hostage at times by decisions the opposition parties have made. Just be glad Mr. Gee, we live in Canada, and not the U.S., where it takes years to get changes made. Canada is No. 1.

And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why CFIB will continue to speak out for a sustained commitment to greater tax fairness. This will require more action, more progress in narrowing the property tax gap and a greater effort to reduce municipal operating spending. Small business owners are the lifeblood of the B.C. economy. They deserve to be treated fairly. Healthy communities depend on it.

A redevelopment of the former McLarty’s Gifts and Furnishings building on Third Street would include one, two and three bedroom units. Two units could be lower cost housing, as the applicant is proposing to work with Capital Regional District Housing to control costs. “It’s in our local area plan in terms of the [official community plan], so it’s not a surprise,” Cross said. “If you look immediately to the east at the Landmark building, that’s a seven storey building and also the [Sidney Pier] Hotel is seven.” Both projects would add density well above what is permitted under current zoning. The developer of the Third Street property proposes to add $345,000 worth of amenities in exchange for Sidney council bumping up the allowed density. “If we don’t start looking at this seriously and do something about it, if we don’t make our town sustainable, we’re just closing ourselves down in the future,” Cross said. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Stolen Canadian flags shows serious disrespect: resident Erin Cardone News staff

A war veteran from Saanichton is calling for a bit of respect after a Canada Day theft. Ed Widenmaier, who lives on

Wallace Drive, had 25 Canada flags flying on his property on July 1. But overnight Sunday, three were taken. “The desecration of Canada’s symbols is not a good policy for Canadians to be doing,”

Widenmaier said. At 12:40 a.m. on July 2, Widenmaier’s security cameras captured five suspects allegedly taking three flags. Widenmaier said it’s not the cost of the flags that bothers

him, it’s the disrespect toward our country. “I hope these people and their friends read [this article] to realize it’s not a very respectful thing to do.” editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Leadership was the key in a weekend matchup that led the Island’s junior B all star lacrosse team to a victory against their Lower Mainland rivals. “They actually gelled very well in a short amount of time. I was really amazed to see how much skill and leadership there was,” said Jeff Summerfield, one of the coaches of the Island all-stars. The team played Sunday, July 1 at Panorama Recreation Centre, winning 11-9 thanks to a pair of hat tricks. Sully Young from Cowichan and Travis Mickelson of Nanaimo each put three in the net,

plus one assist each. The Island all stars team included five Peninsula Warriors players – Tyler Flint, Jeremy Bell, Yannie Reynecke, Simon Sharples, Ken Brown and Jericho Paul. Summerfield coaches the Warriors. The Peninsula team is ranked second in the league with a 11-4-1 win-loss-tie record. They have four games left in league play, ending Thursday, July 12. “We’re doing really well,” Summerfield said. “We have the chance to finish at top of the league if we win out. We’re hoping to put the right foot forward.” sports@peninsulanewsreview.com

“I’m really lucky there’s a training centre here and that I live here so close by. Otherwise, I would have had to go to Ontario to train whereas here I was able to just to come back home and settle in.” Obee says the excitement hasn’t settled in yet because she’s focused on training for London.

“I’m more just in the moment and getting prepared for what we have to do to get our boat the fastest it can be.” Obee, who has an eventual goal of becoming a high school teacher, will compete in London on July 28, 30 and Aug. 1. sports@peninsulanewsreview.com

Devon MacKenzie News staff

The Peninsula will have ties to the summer Olympics this year as Stelly’s secondary school grad Patricia Obee heads to London with Rowing Canada’s Olympic team. Obee, who was officially announced to Rowing Canada’s Olympic team on Thursday, June 28 began her career in rowing while at Stelly’s. “I started rowing in Grade 12,” Obee explained. “Before that, I used to ride horses competitively, but when I started rowing with school I liked it right away, it was really fun.” Obee, 20, will be competing in the women’s lightweight double event in the Olympics with fellow teammate Lindsay Jennerich, 29, who earlier split with longtime training partner Tracy Cameron. Cameron was originally meant to compete on this year’s Olympic team, but injuries and frustration between her and Jennerich preceded Cameron’s unex-

Obee, who was originally set to be an alternate for the team was asked to step up as part of the official Olympic team. Although she began rowing late, Obee quickly excelled in the sport and was offered a scholarship to Oregon State University. Obee attended the school for a year, but soon felt the pull back to Peninsula as the Olympic training season neared. “The seed was planted in my

head by people who kept dropping hints about considering coming back here to try for the Olympic team,” Obee explained. “I actually went back to school in the fall, but I kept thinking about it and it just seemed so much more exciting to come back and try for the Olympics. I just couldn’t let that opportunity go by without taking it.” Obee returned to Victoria in January and says she is very thankful that she is so close to a training facility.

Sidney was abuzz July 1 as the town marked Canada’s 145th birthday with its annual Sidney Days events. The day was action packed with several events including the Peninsula Track Fun Run, the Kiwanis pancake breakfast, the Family Fun Fair at Iroquois Park and the Slegg Lumber Build-a-Quick-Boat contest. Sidney also celebrated with the Thrifty Foods community barbecue on Saturday evening which was followed by the new musical fireworks. The parade was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the weekend with thousands of people lining the streets to take in the floats. Prizes for best floats in the parade were handed out to Pacific Animal Pet Therapy for best animal float, Thrifty Foods for best commercial float, Sons of Norway for best nonprofit float, Chinese Happy Drum group for the best spirit and the best overall float was won by Morgana.

More than 50 dancers performed in 26 choreographed routines in the year end Parkland dance showcase. The capacity crowd was thoroughly entertained with an array of dances featuring a variety of genres including hip-hop, jazz, lyrical, tap, modern, interpretive, belly dance and even Bollywood.
