Colwood is meeting tonight to discuss a sewage treatment agreement that could end up costing the city $1.84 million per year for something that won’t be needed for years to come. The Capital Regional District is getting closer to building a sewer treatment plant in Esquimalt with a limited capacity. Each municipality in the region is being asked to buy into the plant and to commit to using a specific portion of the capacity for 20 years, essentially reserving capacity not yet being used and paying for the sewage of tomorrow, today. “The (net) cost of building that has to be divided up amongst everybody in accordance with how much they asked for,� said Michael Baxter, Colwood’s director of engineering. “So if we ask for a tenth for it, we pay a tenth of the price.

View Royal controversial plan for a new firehall sparked two councillors to engage in a spirited email debate last weekend. The councillors were at odds over ads the town is running about an anti-loan pamphlet containing misinformation over the cost to taxpayers of the proposed loan for a new fire hall. In an email forwarded to media July 7, Coun. Ron Mattson criticized the publication of the ad, which ran in last Wednesday’s as well as in today’s Gazette. Mattson called it “hypocritical” to run such an ad. In an email, he accused council of choosing the Alternative Approval Process – which he voted against – because they believed only Ron Mattson a small group of people who opposed to the loan would vote against it in a referendum. “By copy of this note I will be publicly expressing my regret that the town is going to such lengths to push an initiative that so many of our residents are opposed to,” wrote Mattson, who submitted his own AAP form opposing the loan. Coun. David Screech responded to Mattson, explaining that it was a staff decision to run the ad and that the ad is appropriate given that, by the group’s own admission, there was misinformation contained in the pamphlet. “You might want to check out some facts before you fly off the handle,” Screech wrote. “I’ll await your apology.” In an interview with the Gazette, David Screech Mattson said he would not be responding to Screech. He feels the decision to run that ad is a political decision and should have been officially approved by council. “They’re so desperate to try and defend their indefensible AAP process that they’re trying to use this as justification for why people are submitting forms,” Mattson said. “The people who have done this aren’t doing it because they are stupid. They’re doing it because they’re really upset with the process and they don’t want to spend that sort of money on a fire hall that some of them don’t believe we need.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

West Coast in capable hands

Seen here in March, Blue Bird taxi cab driver Rakesh Kohli, secretary-treasurer of the Greater Victoria Taxi Association, holds a twenty dollar bill in his cab. The taxi association is hoping to have the Taxi Bill of Rights introduced so drivers can ask customers for a deposit before their ride to discourage riding and dashing.

Cabbies hope to cut down on fare-evading passengers Daniel Palmer News staff

Taxi drivers in the Capital Region are hoping for better protection when asking for upfront payments from customers. Pending approval from the Ministry of Transportation, all Greater Victoria cabs will be required to display the Taxi Bill of Rights in their vehicles as of Oct. 1, something Metro Vancouver cabs have been doing for the past four years. The bill clearly states the rights of drivers and passengers and helps drivers avoid being questioned when refusing service. “Right now, if a passenger says, ‘I’m not paying you unless you show me the law,’ we can’t do much about it,” said Kuldeep Singh, Greater Victoria Taxi Association president. The Taxi Bill of Rights allows drivers to point out specific regulations to irate passengers, he said. “Usually, it’s at nighttime when people are a little bit drunk and want to go somewhere (when they) don’t have the money,” said Blue Bird cab driver Rakesh Kohli. “Daytime incidents are really rare, but it does happen.” Under current provincial regulations, drivers have the option of requesting a deposit from passengers. If the passenger refuses to provide up front payment, the driver can refuse service.

The Passenger Transportation Board, which regulates taxi companies in the province, was lobbied by the Greater Victoria Taxi Association in April to support the expansion of the Taxi Bill of Rights beyond Metro Vancouver cabs. “The board is definitely supportive of (the expansion),” said board director Jan Broocke. “It benefits both passengers and drivers and we have heard positive comments from it in the Lower Mainland.” Sandi Poulin of Yellow Cabs expects passenger collateral – unclaimed drivers licences, wallets and jewelry left behind in lieu of payment – to decrease if the Taxi Bill of Rights is rolled out across the region. “It’s like $70 to replace a drivers licence, so you would think they’d come in and pay their fare, but I’ve got lots sitting here that have been here a few months,” she said. Singh said support is unanimous for the proposed expansion. “(The board) told us they’ll have everything ready for the October meeting, that’s what they told us,” he said. A spokesperson for the Ministry of Transportation said they have not yet received a formal request to expand the Taxi Bill of Rights to Greater Victoria. dpalmer@vicnews.com

With hundreds of West Coast military personnel, seven ships and a submarine away at sea, CFB Esquimalt may seem like a ghost town. Two warships, three maritime coastal defence vessels and submarine HMCS Victoria are sailing in Hawaiian waters as part of a multi-national Rim of the Pacific exercise until Aug. 3. Warship HMCS Regina left for the Arabian Sea on Tuesday. HMCS Vancouver will sail with her until they reach Hawaii. Two frigates remain at the base, though there are other smaller naval vessels training in local waters. HMCS Calgary just left the shop and HMCS Winnipeg is about to undergo a mid-life refit. Having the bulk of the West Coast fleet sailing at the same time is, in fact, an ideal situation, in the eyes of navy leaders.

“What we want is to have as many ships at sea doing (the) training and operations that are ultimately what we are all about,” said navy Capt. Luc Cassivi, chief of operations for Maritime Forces Pacific. “This is good news that we are getting as much as we can out of our ships.” Ships sailing abroad or at home can be quickly reassigned to respond to an emergency situation, though there is typically advance intelligence that allows the navy to prepare, Cassivi said. In the event of a domestic emergency, provincial and federal government agencies would respond before the navy was called in. “We need to train our sailors and we need to get our ships ready and our crew used to managing life at sea and operations, so when we do get a tasking for international (or) national operations we have as ready a crew as we can to deal with those situations,” Cassivi said. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Community reaches out to mom with skin cancer Natalie North

Help for Julia and Lucas

News staff

When Julia Wolf watched the media coverage highlighting her personal experience with skin cancer, her mind immediately jumped to evaluating her on-air appearance, not the support her story might generate. “I actually didn’t expect anybody to come forward, so I was really touched that so many people were touched,” said Wolf, a single mother from Saanich with Stage 3 metastatic melanoma. “For me, it’s my life. Everyday, it’s like, this sucks, but I should keep pushing forward, but for other people to be touched by it – I was amazed.” Since the Gazette first ran a feature on the 28-year-old – whose cancer was detected nine years after she first brought her health concerns to doctors – readers have sent her their words of support and personal experiences. Among them: Kathy Barnard, a melanoma survivor and founder of the Save Your Skin Foundation, a Vancouver-based non-profit dedicated to support and advocacy for those diagnosed with late-stage melanoma. Barnard was one of the first five Canadians included in American testing for immune and genome melanoma therapies. She has now lived nine years past her expected time of death and the drugs have just been approved in Canada. “There are treatment options available and I can arm her with the information,” Barnard said. Despite limited means as a relatively small foundation, Save Your Skin has offered to cover costs associated with Wolf’s treatment, should she need to travel out of province. “We need to get Julia the drug – no matter where she is. Time is of the essence,” Barnard added. “The hardest part of my battle is that nobody ever gave me a weapon, and now we have those. We have hope now. We never had it before. I want Julia to have that. She has a little boy. She needs to be around. … We’ve done it before and we’ll do it again.” Readers also suggested a number of alternative therapies. Wolf has added Essiac herbal tea intended to help boost the immune system to her treatment and admits to having tried a juice diet. “It’s hard to know which (therapy) to try, because you Google it and some people say ‘Yes, it works,’ while others say it doesn’t,” Wolf said. “It’s really hard to guide your way through that.” Many of those who saw the story in the Gazette, as well as other local media, donated to a trust fund for her two-and-a-half year-old son, Lucas.

Three-year-old Lucas Wolf gives his mother Julia a kiss in their Saanich home. Julia has seen an outpouring of support since she went public about her fight with skin cancer. KidSport came forward and offered to pay his sport fees until he turns 18. There was enough money donated through a website, and through the Saanich Fire Department Charitable Foundation for Wolf plan a trip to Legoland in California with Lucas. She plans to go in August. “It’s really been an interesting experience,” Wolf noted. The Save Your Skin Foundation has assisted about 1,000 late-stage melanoma patients globally and is driven by a primary mandate not to solicit donations, but rather to reach out to patients in need of emotional support and treatment advocacy. “It’s preventable, and if you catch it early enough, it’s got a 95 per cent survival rate. It’s the easiest to check. People just aren’t checking their skin,” Barnard said. nnorth@saaanichnews.com

Jets Overhead are among the bands playing this Friday’s Rock the Shores event in Colwood. Lead singer Adam Kittredge, above, says from his experience going to concerts, there is nothing quite like an outdoor summer show to bring people together.

And, if the elements align just right, there really is nothing like it. “It’s just that feeling of summer, music, barbeque, drinking beers,” Stanton said. “It almost makes you feel like you’re living in the ‘60s or something, like Woodstock, and taking it all in.

OUR VIEW

Service clubs worth our time There are cycles in everything from the market to the seasons. The health of service clubs in our community is also subject to the whims of changing times. On the West Shore, there are a number of clubs that have made a significant impact on the region. Think of the Kinsmen Field House or the Rotary Picnic Shelter at West Shore Parks and Rec. At a recent meeting with the Gazette, Rotary members from two of the region’s clubs (one is for those who prefer morning meetings and the other for those who’d rather meet in the evening) were fairly satisfied with the number of people choosing to become a part of their organization. Part of the success stems from a decision made 25 years ago to allow women into the club. Today, young women looking to network within the business friendly organization account for much of the Rotary’s growth, with about half of all members now women. The club relies on existing members to bring in new members and it seems to be working. “We just have really high quality people in our clubs,” said Harold McNabb of the West Shore Rotary. “They’re the kind of people you want to be around.” The same could be said of another service club in town, though its traditional membership is a tougher demographic to find these days. The West Shore Lions Club is made up mostly of retirees who are looking for a way to continue giving back to the community. The club is deeply rooted on the West Shore, though they’re perhaps best known for their annual Easter Seals campaign. Paul Patrick, an officer with the West Shore Lions Club, said it’s trickier for his club to recruit members because they might be new in town after moving to the community to retire. It’s definitely an issue in a place that is growing as fast as the West Shore. So, if you’re thinking you can do a little more to help make this community an even better place to live, think about giving a service club what is truly your most valuable asset: your time.

LETTERS Credit where credit’s due for successful Belmont grad events We wish to wholeheartedly thank Darlene Younger and her amazing crew of volunteer organizers for a phenomenal 2012 Belmont secondary school prom. By all accounts, the dinner was great, the photo booth and dance a lot of fun, and the ‘Enchanted Forest’ theme was, well, enchanting. Also, we would like to thank Principal Carl Repp and his dedicated admin team, for organizing an outstanding dry grad, giving our kids a choice for a more wholesome evening of celebration, which included bowling, mini golf, laser tag, rock climbing, a mechanical bull, breakfast and prizes for all. Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank all of the parent volunteers who helped make both events happen. Truly a night to remember fondly, for grads, and parents.

Giving out free parking passes a poor use of CRD resources On Canada Day two smiling Capital Regional District (CRD) employees were spotted driving around Thetis Lake parking lot handing out a seemingly endless supply of free parking passes. Granted, I’m not usually one to shy away from a freebie, but this time I refrained. The seemingly innocuous gift from our CRD government represents an incredible example local government waste. How much did these free passes actually cost? Paying not one, but two CRD employees (overtime?) to drive around in a so called “sustainable” vehicles provided an incredible example of how out of touch our local government has become with the fiscal realities of the day. Amalgamation and reigning in the CRD cannot come soon enough. Chris Walker View Royal

Teachers deserve more respect for high quality B.C. education I read the recent editorial headline stating “The BCTF is indoctrinating our kids” and even though the article seemed to be missing, the headline said it all. (Editor’s Note: Due to a publication error the wrong headline appeared above last Friday’s column by Edward Hill.) Remember that rule about how to not take things for granted, and how you don’t know how wonderful you have it until it is gone? I would like people to take a moment

and imagine a life in B.C. without public education. We have an African program called Chess which provides free education to girls who would not be educated otherwise. The African woman who started the program told her life story of getting in trouble sneaking in classrooms and hiding in order to learn because she wasn’t allowed to be there. She went to extreme measures all because she had a desperate desire to learn. However, in B.C. the public takes for granted that we have one of the most incredible free education systems in the world designed by the teachers who implement it. They don’t seem to appreciate the dedicated teachers who for decades have volunteered thousands of personal hours for the benefit of their students. If teachers request to be treated fairly and not bullied into a contract, the public is quick to ridicule them without ever considering how they should be supporting the teachers instead. I read editorial headlines like this and am disgusted by the disdain it implies. I wish that newspapers would report instead how integral to our countries success the support of our public education system is. Remember, if you can read this, thank a teacher.

Colwood residents should have the right to backyard chickens How many people that live in Colwood live on an acre of land? Not very many, most lots are around 8,000 to 9,000 square feet, but if all other regions are on board with having a chicken or two on your own property, why is Colwood holding back? I do not see a problem with that, do you? I think it’s time for the City of Colwood to start listening to the taxpayers of Colwood instead of brushing us off. I think it’s a right to have animals on your own property such as cats, dogs or pigeons, why not a couple of laying hens as long as they are looked after and cleaned up after like any other animals? I myself would like a couple of hens to get fresh eggs daily, but if we could have chickens, I would talk to all my neighbours first before the chickens came. I joke why did the chicken cross the road? To move into Colwood, he didn’t like living in Oak Bay. Tom Lott Colwood

View Royal’s plans for new fire hall are excessively expensive Re: “Fact or fiction?”, June 29 Sounds like Coun. David Screech has been into the screech when he tries to defend council’s decision to borrow $8 million to build a new fire hall. The numbers speak for themselves. Borrowing $8 million at 4.5 per cent over 20 years will cost taxpayers $8 million plus $6 million in interest. What are they proposing to build in View Royal, a temple or a fire hall? Colwood has a relatively new three-bay fire hall with all the bells and whistles – total cost: under $2 million. The real concern for View Royal taxpayers should be that their elected officials have caught the compulsive spending disease – something that can happen when there is a casino in your backyard. John Townson Colwood

Not enough options on the table for View Royal fire hall I value our View Royal volunteer fire department. There is no doubt that there should be a safe and effective building to work from. The proposed new fire hall is a separate issue. View Royal’s city hall has not made it easy for residents to get the information necessary to make an informed decision. The “FAQ” sheet distributed by the town in mid-June does not adequately explain the project, provide alternatives or clearly explain that the Alternative Approval Process (AAP) is the means that View Royal has chosen by which the electors must advise local government that, in their opinion, the matter is of such significance that a referendum on borrowing should be held. Nor does it clearly indicate that the AAP requires citizens to obtain, complete and submit the proper form which must be received by the Town of View Royal no later than 4 p.m. Wednesday, July 11. This form was not sent with the “FAQ” sheet and it appears that it wasn’t posted on the town’s web site until June 28 (the link to the form can be found at the bottom of the article titled “Alternative Approval Process for New Public Safety Building”). Questions in need of answers: What are the alternatives to building such a large fire hall? Could not View Royal, with population of 9,393, partner with a neighbouring community? If View Royal and Colwood were one municipality would there be two such fire stations – or just one main station and a substation? Once the new hall is occupied, why isn’t

selling the current site mandatory, with the proceeds going towards reducing long term debt? View Royal’s 2012 five year financial plan (available on their website) anticipates a municipal tax increase of 16.93 per cent for 2013 over 2012, which appears to be mainly due to increased capital spending. How complete and realistic is the town’s long term capital spending forecast? Does it adequately project infracturure replacement for at least the next 10 years – or is the forecasted capital spending underestimated? How reliable are the estimates for the capital projects anticipated for 2012 and 2013? Will the $8 million turn into $12 million or more? Capital projects take a significant amount of time, effort and money and there are always a number of worthy competing projects. The magnitude of the projects demand careful and thoughtful consideration and understanding of the alternatives, not a deal done through a back door AAP that few people understand. We should demand complete information and fiscal responsibility. If you agree more information is required before over $8 million dollars is committed, sign and deliver the AAP form to View Royal town hall today. Karen Blakely View Royal

Jubilee burn unit receives financial boost Region’s firefighters donate $346,865 to hospital foundation Erin McCracken News staff

JOHN

Wednesday, July 11, 2012 - GOLDSTREAM

Burn patients who receive specialized care at the Royal Jubilee Hospital’s burn unit received a helping hand with their healing. The Firefighters Burn Fund of

Greater Victoria, which has generated $2.5 million over the past 30 years to support burn survivors, presented a cheque on June 29 for $346,865 to the Victoria Hospital Foundation’s Building Care Together campaign. The funds will pay for expensive equipment for adults who are treated at the burn and complex woundcare unit on the seventh floor of the hospital’s new Patient Care Centre. Equipment needs at the unit range from a shower mister and pressurerelieving mattresses to ceiling mount

lifts, among a long list of items. “We’re trying to give the best healing environment we can for the patients, and if it costs that kind of money, we’re just glad the citizens of (Greater) Victoria make it happen,” said Mike Finlayson, retired CFB Esquimalt firefighter and chair of the burn fund society. The money will provide “tremendous relief to patients on the Island who suffer from burns and other complex wounds,” said Dr. Chris Taylor, head of the burn unit. “The injuries these patients suffer

from are some of the most difficult and painful to treat,” he said. The non-profit Firefighters Burn Fund receives its donations through telemarketing, bequeathments and private donors. The fund also provides for peer support initiatives, burn training for nurses and the society’s Burn House on Richmond Road, which provides a home away from home for families of burn patients receiving care at Jubilee. editor@vicnews.com

Take care to enjoy the sun safely VIEW ROYAL PUBLIC SAFETY BUILDING VIEW ROYAL LOAN AUTHORIZATION BYLAW NO.826, 2012

Seniors more prone to dehydration as temperatures rise

Misleading Information Being Circulated in the Community

Christine van Reeuwyk

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).

Seniors should keep their cool this week as Environment Canada predicts weather hitting highs of 27 C Saturday and Sunday in Victoria. For active seniors it may mean getting out in the garden, but do it safely, says the Vancouver Island Health Authority. “It’s nice that we have this problem, that we’re finally getting some summer weather. That will benefit people psychologically,” said Richard Stanwick, chief medical health officer for VIHA “Get out there and enjoy the weather but take the right precautions.” Use sunscreen as always, and if you’re heading out to the garden, don’t do it between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. “As you get older, you actually have smaller water reserves on board,” Stanwick said.

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. 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. 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. Alternative Approval Elector Response Forms must be submitted no later than Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 4:00 PM (postmarks not accepted), to: Town of View Royal Attention: Corporate Officer 45 View Royal Avenue Victoria, BC, V9B 1A6 Telephone: 250-479-6800 Fax: 250-727-9551 Email: info@viewroyal.ca Requests to withdraw your Alternative Approval Elector Response Form must be made as described above no later than Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 4:00 PM. For AAP inquiries, please contact the Corporate Officer at Town Hall. Additional Resources If you want to know more about the Public Safety Building project, please go to www.viewroyal.ca and click on the picture of the fire truck. At that linked site, you will find background documents, reports, etc. The “Community Affect” button on the menu bar will provide you with information specific to property tax impact.

“Even if you’re physically active and fit you just don’t have the reserves you used to. … Make sure you have a water bottle, and use it.” Stay away from caffeine or alcohol as they stimulate the kidneys to get rid of excess water. There are also medications seniors may take that mask the symptoms of overheating, Stanwick warns. So take precautions and note if you’re urinating less than usual. “If you don’t have air conditioning or a cooling fan in your apartment or your suite, this may be a good time to visit the mall,” he said. Seniors are also more prone to falls as the temperature rises. “If you get up quickly in hot weather your likelihood of passing out goes up,” Stanwick said. “If it’s hot, take it slow.” cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

Colwood sewage needs hard to predict

The Great Quidam™ Character Hunt

Continued from Page A1

The problem Colwood has is its projected rate of growth. While other communities require a level of sewage services that likely won’t change much in 20 years, Colwood is expecting to grow exponentially. But it must buy in now for its anticipated needs over the next 20 years.

ZOE

Colwood could therefore be facing an immediate cost of $1.84 million per year, mostly for sewage that the community would not yet be using, at least initially. Baxter said that there are two ways to charge that extra cost: either as a fee on those already connected to sewers, which would cost all sewer users around $1,000 a year extra, or to charge

all taxpayers, which could potentially increase property taxes by about $215 on average. “Twenty bucks would be something that they would probably still object to if they’re not using the service,” Baxter said. “That would give them the ability to connect one day, but when, if the sewer doesn’t come anywhere

near their house?” The province and federal government have agreed to support the project, but the details still have to be revealed by each. CRD chair Geoff Young said that he understands some municipalities might not find the situation ideal, but that the regional district will work with them to try and come up with the best solution.

“When you can foresee that there will be new population it’s crazy to build the plant exactly to the size you need today,” said Young. “The one thing I can say for sure is that we will not have a perfect cost allocation system.” Langford Coun. Denise Blackwell said her municipality has no concerns with the process and understands that taxpayers will have to front the money in someway in order to bring sewage treatment up to standards and to ensure Locally Owned & Operated In Your Neighbourhood • Best Value.

Putting the squeeze on classical tunes Accordion parade helps promote annual festival Kyle Wells News staff

What makes a loud noise when you squeeze it and loves a good bellow? No, it’s not the beginning of a bad joke. It’s an accordion. From July 19 to 22 the Sixth International Victoria Accordion Festival will be taking place around town and hosting some of the top accordion acts in the world. Friday night is Russian night and will feature a concert by worldfamous accordionist Alexander Sevastian, from Minsk, Belarus, at St. Andrew’s Church (680 Courtney St.). Sevastian has won four international accordion competitions and played with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. On the Saturday night, Torontobased Quartetto Gelato will be performing at St. Andrew’s. The group, which features Sevastian on accordion, is a crowd favourite. On oboe, violin, cello and,

of course, accordion, along with tenor vocals, the quartet serves up a variety of world and classical music styles. “They are so famous and so popular, particularly in this city,” festival director Aleksandar Milojevic said. “We’re sure people will appreciate their concert.” Another highlight is the Accordion Parade, a first-time event for the festival. The parade kicks off from Market Square at 1 p.m. on the Saturday and will see squeezebox players coming together to play and parade through downtown to Centennial Square and back. “Just imagine if you have many orchestras together, that’s the sound that you get,” Milojevic said. All accordion players are invited to take part in the parade, but are asked to arrive at noon to prepare. Most exciting for organizers is that this year’s festival is a precursor of sorts to what will prove to be the big event in 2013. The success of the festival over the past five years was one con-

Toronto-based Quartetto Gelato will be playing July 21 at St. Andrew's Church as a part of the Sixth International Victoria Accordion Festival running from July 19 to 22. tributing factor to Victoria being named host of the 66th Coupe Mondiale event in 2013. This will be the first time that the world’s biggest accordion event has been held in Canada and it will run from Aug. 17 to 25. Hundreds of accordi-

onists and even more visitors from all over the world are expected to attend the event, which takes place in a different country every year. “People are so happy,” Milojevic said. “So that means that we’re doing something good here

in Victoria.” For Milojevic one of the best parts of the festival is seeing the younger players getting involved and falling in love with the instrument, and seeing accordions begin to regain a popularity they haven’t enjoyed since the rise of rock and roll. “Accordions became a not very cool instrument with all the electric guitars and drums and everything that youngsters could express themselves differently with. But now it’s picking up again,” Milojevic said. “We have kids seven years old or eight years old competing, which is amazing and you don’t see everyday, everywhere.” Tickets for the Sevastian and Quartetto Gelato concerts are $25, $20 for seniors and students. The workshop is $25 per person or $30 at the door. Tickets are available at Tempo Trend Music and Long and McQuade, by phone at 778433-8700 or by email at contact@ bcaccordion.ca.

Arts venue welcomes CeltFest

Monterey’s ice cream ceilidh A Celtic celebration featuring world-class performers from Scotland and Ireland on Monday, July 16 at 2 p.m. in the Monterey Recreation Centre lobby. Ice cream is $2 a cone, add 75 cents for a sundae with toppings.

Week-long party starts with town hall kickoff Saturday Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

CeltFest Vancouver Island will have its central headquarters at the Canadian College of Performing Arts in Oak Bay. “We’re excited about the partnership with CeltFest. I think it’s a great addition to the Oak Bay community,” said Ron Schuster, director of the Canadian College of Performing Arts. “We like to be able to support other activities and bring other assets into the community.” The annual event was held in Shawnigan Lake, Nanaimo and Parksville before making the move to Victoria for its 12th year. “We’ve had a number of CeltFest related events, like single concerts in Victoria over the years,” said festival producer Carolyn Phillips Cusson. “We’ve always detected a really warm welcome from the Victoria gang.” Part of the mandate of the CeltFest is to move around the Island, spreading the culture. “We did search around and we were looking at a number of venues and the CCPA just suited our needs perfectly,” she said. It fit with the multiple events that include a concert series, summer school and workshops. “We wanted to contain it in one building to make it manageable,” she said. “They’re very suited to our needs.” CeltFest kicks off with a free event filled with music and dance in front of municipal hall, 2167 Oak Bay Ave. on July 14 at 1 p.m.

Sing ‘n’ dance in Oak Bay

Performers on stage at the 2011 Sunset and Stars Gala finale. This year’s finale is on Thursday, July 19 at 7:30 p.m. Purchase tickets online at Celticperformingarts.com. “Although Greater Victoria is all wonderful, the demographic of Oak Bay – there’s certainly lots of Brits and Scots – it just felt like a right place,” agreed her husband and co-producer Rene Cusson. He added there’s been a warm welcome from council and residents. A number of community events are planned, including by-donation dance classes Monday through Thursday at 2:45 p.m. at the Monterey rec centre. “They’re the social dances, so if you can walk, you can ceilidh dance,” Carolyn said.

CeltFest runs through July 20. See full schedule of workshops and events online at celtfest.ca. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

Has my vision changed? How frequently should one “change ones glasses?” There is no hard and fast answer to this question. Certain people are able to keep the same prescription for two or three years, sometimes longer, while others require more frequent changes. Nearsighted children and adults between age forty and sixty, usually fall into the latter category, often requiring new prescriptions annually for several years. Typically, most adults will require lenses for reading and near work, when they reach their early forties. If distance vision is good without glasses, “readers” are often all that is necessary; but if distance correction is needed, bifocals or progressive lenses are most commonly prescribed. The reading prescription usually changes about every one to two years until age sixty or so. After sixty, barring eye health problems such as cataracts, the vision is usually very stable, and only minor changes are required. The best way to monitor these changes is to have routine eye examinations. Not only do these timely visits ensure the eyes are healthy, they are the most effective way to ensure a person is seeing as well as he or she should.

Kings of the hill Hiking event for either the casuals or the diehards

Volunteer and hiker Bob McAree and co-founder Lisa Odgaard are preparing for the second annual Mt. Finlayson Madness charity hiking event on Saturday, July 14.

Kyle Wells News staff

Airport union demands pay equity Stalled bargaining talks at the Victoria International Airport may go to conciliation. The Union of Canadian Transportation Employees has 30 or so Public Service Alliance of Canada members at the airport who work in emergency response, customer care, runway maintenance, computer systems and other jobs. Among the union’s top issues is wage parity with workers at the Vancouver International Airport. “Even though the cost living quite similar there’s a big difference in pay,” said Dave Clark, the union’s regional vice-president pacific. Federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt has 90 days to appoint a conciliator.

LOCAL WOMEN MAKING A DIFFERENCE

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

Do you know a hardworking Victoria business woman?

2011 WINNERS

The challenge is on to see who can hike up and down Mt. Finlayson the most times in 12 hours this weekend, while raising money for a good cause. Last year’s record was 14, set by a man who for the most part ran, in pouring rain, up and down the 419 metre mountain – the second highest peak in Victoria. The event, known as Mt. Finlayson Madness, isn’t only for diehards though. In fact, only about four of last year’s 40 participants attacked the trail to tally up trips. Other participants did the trail once or twice. Some even do just a half trip if they want to avoid the more difficult rocky portions at the top of the trail. It’s all for fun and a good cause. “It’s such a team. It feels like everybody’s encouraging each other,” Odgaard said. “You get to know everybody over the course of the day and everyone’s cheering each other on. It’s wonderful.” Odgaard and Andy Hughes started the event last year after Hughes, while hiking, got to wondering how many times he could hike up and down Finlayson in a day. He talked to his friend Odgaard about the idea and the two came up with the idea of turning it into a fundraising event for local charities. Of the money raised at the event this year, 50 per cent will go to the Mustard Seed, 35 per cent to Queen Alexandra Foundation for Children’s Jeneece Place and the remainder is to be split between the Goldstream Parks Enhancement Fund and St. John’s Ambulance, which will be on hand during the event in case of injury. Last year, participants raised $5,000. Hikers can collect pledges either as a lump sum for taking part in the event or by getting people to pledge a certain amount of money for every round trip the participant makes. Odgaard has been getting mostly lump sum pledges, with her friends telling her they’re concerned over how many round trips she can do. “I don’t think they know my fitness level,” Odgaard laughed. The plan is to keep the madness as an annual event. Organizers have the permit for the event in place for the next five years. Mt. Finlayson Madness starts Saturday at 8 a.m., and runs until 8 p.m. Participants can sign up online at Finhike.org. Participants meet at the entrance to Goldstream Park off the Trans-Canada Highway at Finlayson Arm Road. Parking is limited. Some volunteers are still needed to help run the event this Saturday.

Ryder Hesjedal now focusing on Olympics Travis Paterson News staff

He’s the reigning Giro d’Italia winner and is London-bound for his third Olympic Games. But even the chance to gorge – guilt free – on all the

French cuisine he can this weekend will do little to lift the spirits of Ryder Hesjedal. The wiry Victoria cyclist withdrew from the Tour de France prior to Saturday’s Stage 7 after a major crash set him, and some of his Team Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda teammates, 13 minutes back of the leaders on Friday’s Stage 6. Hesjedal finished the stage, but subsequently pulled out. “Its a huge disappointment,” Hesjedal said.

“I was in good form and feeling comfortable, just really settling in to the first week with an eye on the mountains.” Hesjedal said he’s now focused on the Olympics, and has resigned himself to rooting for his Garmin teammates still on the Tour. At the moment of the crash, which happened 26 kilometres from the end of Friday’s stage, Hesjedal was one of the top contenders in the hunt for the yellow jersey as the overall winner of the Tour. Dozens of riders piled-up in front of him and he sustained a hematoma to his left leg and hip. The team released a statement about the injury, saying it prevented a normal pedal stroke. “The injury would only be worsened if he tried to ride (Saturday),” team doctor Prentice Steffen said. “He needs to go home, keep working with the medical staff, and recover.” “(Garmin) still has a strong group of riders here and they will still do great things,” Hesjedal said. Garmin’s Tom Danielson, who Hesjedal helped to ninth-overall in the 2011 Tour, was also part of the crash that led to Hesjedal’s demise, and was forced to abandon mid-race. Hesjedal will represent Canada at the London Olympics in the men’s road race on July 28 and time trial on Aug. 1. sports@vicnews.com

Jr. Rocks draw New West

Walk-In Denture Clinic

Shamrocks the final seed in junior lacrosse playoffs

WHY WAIT? WE CAN HELP NOW! Happiness is a beautiful smile!

Travis Paterson News staff

Coach Larry Smeltzer wants to believe his team will come together in the playoffs. The Victoria Shamrocks are the sixth and final seed to qualify for the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League postseason, drawing the third-place New Westminster Salmonbellies. “(Hockey’s) Los Angeles Kings were the final seed and they (won the Stanley Cup),” Smeltzer said. “Are we the Los Angeles of our league? We just need to come together at the right time.” The stage is certainly set, as the Shamrocks will open the first-round series on the road against the Salmonbellies, likely Saturday night. New West won all three meetings this year, 9-7 at Bear Mountain Arena, and 12-4 and 10-9 at Queen’s Arena. “It’s funny, we didn’t beat (New West) but we still hoped we would get them (in the playoffs),” Smeltzer said. “We feel they felt they were lucky to beat us. And the games are more predictable from our perspective.” There is a lingering expectation that the core of this Shamrocks team, which won the 2010 provincial intermediate-A championship, will one day make a similar run at the junior A level. But time is running out, as the core of the squad is 20 years old, and next year will be its last. The team is talented offensively, second overall in goals scored with 209. There’s also been a series of tweaks to Smeltzer’s old-is-new-again system. To start the season, all players were responsible for offence and defence, as Smeltzer moved away from the current trend of the day, which is to lean heavily on specialized players. Instead, he emphasized fast breaks and taking advantage of the other team’s line changes. The fast break has continued, but the Rocks Greg Sakaki/Black Press now use a hybrid system of sorts. “Sometimes we change it up period to period, Victoria junior Shamrocks player Conrad and sometimes parts of (the new) system are Chapman, left, grabs a loose ball against the quite hidden,” Smeltzer said. “But we’re tied for Nanaimo Timbermen during a B.C. Junior the most short handed goals (21), goalie (Cody Lacrosse League game earlier this season. Hagedorn) has 20 assists, and we’ve scored lots of goals on the breakout, so it’s there.” The Shamrocks ended the regular season with a 14-11 road loss to the first-place Coquitlam AdanSalmonbellies at Shamrocks, Saturday, acs on Sunday. 5 p.m. at Bear Mountain Arena, Game 2 of Coquitlam put the Shamrocks under the gun quarterfinals best-of-three series. from the start with a 7-1 lead in the first period.

The Adanacs’ lead slipped to 10-9 and if we play our game plan we’ll be fine,” in the third period before they scored four more.

Love demands sacrifice. The central theme of local filmmakers Jeremy Lutter and Daniel Hogg’s latest film, Floodplain, could also be applied to the difficult process of shooting it. The coming-of-age tale follows Vic and Duncan, as the young couple fulfills their childhood promise to raft across a floodplain in Invermere, B.C. It’s a story that both director Lutter and writer-producer Hogg identify with, but it’s also one that requires a certain degree of sacrifice when it comes to filming almost entirely on an isolated marsh outside of Maple Ridge. “The nature of the project is inherently challenging with these actors out on the water. … We need boats and water safety people and locations that we’re looking at all have location fees attached,” said Hogg, who adapted the script from a short story by D.W. Wilson, a University of Victoria writing department grad and winner of the BBC National Short Story Award. “I also think it’s a beautiful story, a story that deserves to be told,” Hogg added. The folks at the National

Victoria filmmaker Jeremy Lutter scouts locations in Widgeon marsh in Maple Ridge for his upcoming shoot for his movie, Floodplain. Screen Institute agreed. This spring Floodplain was awarded the national film and television training school’s drama prize, which includes ongoing mentoring and $30,000 in cash and in-kind services towards the production of the sevento-10-minute film. “Unfortunately, it was for movie-related services, not marine-related services,” Lutter said with a laugh. “I don’t know why on Earth I would choose to shoot a film based on a raft. Most people shoot protagonists and antagonists in a room, sitting down and talking at a dinner table.” The filmmakers are now faced with the challenge of fundraising for the cost of constructing the raft, as well as the additional costs associated with filming safely on the water. For this they set a fundraising goal of $3,500 on crowdfunding site indiegogo.com,

where supporters can track the progress of the film and receive perks, such as original storyboards, for donating to the creative campaign. Based on the success of Lutter’s last film, donors can expect their cash will be put to good use. Lutter raised $6,000 through indiegogo.com last year for an animatronic robot for Joanna Makes a Friend. That film, story-edited by Hogg, won a viewers’ choice award at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year and went on to screen at the Cannes International Film Festival in May in France. “I couldn’t believe (the film won in Toronto), and then something even better happened,” Lutter said of the Cannes screening. “It’s pretty much the most ridiculous thing ever.” Lutter is currently developing Joanna Makes a Friend into

a feature-length film, while planning for a late-July shoot for Floodplain. He and Hogg have yet to reveal any casting decisions. The two have collaborated on more than 20 films since they met as UVic students at the Victoria Film Producers’ Association launch party in 1999. “I’m surprised that he still answers my phone calls,” Lutter said. “I don’t know why he does. I owe him more favours than he owes me.” Hogg chalks up their partnership to mutual respect – and the fact that he answers those calls. “At the end of the day, we have mutual sensibilities. We have similar goals and I think we complement each other's skills.” All the details on Floodplain can be found at Facebook. com/floodplainmovie. nnorth@saanichnews.com

■ Westshore Town Centre foodbank awareness fundraiser ■ SaturdayJuly 7th ■ Westshore Town Centre

Fun for families and donations for foodbank Westshore Town Centre was the scene for family activities and food bank awareness on Saturday July 7th. Along with the great sunny weather, many families came to participate in the fun, find some great deals at the sidewalk sale and help the Goldstream Food bank. Shoppers were visited by a photo-friendly Spiderman and Batman; kids bounced in inflatables and strawberry shortcake and corn on the cob were enjoyed by all.

Isis Sartisohn has her face painted by Girl Guide Jessica Knowles.

The mall, as part of the Bentall Kennedy managed shopping centres, have teamed up nationally to fight hunger for local foodbanks across Canada. “Locally, the residents of the Westshore have been very generous in supporting our food bank through monetary donations and food contributions, both on an ongoing basis and at our Saturday event”, says Annabelle Suminski, Marketing Director. The momentum needs to continue. The shopping centre with the most donations will receive a $10,000 grant for their local food bank. Don’t forget to enter online to win free Groceries for a Year!
