Plan in place for city’s future Council adopts new strategic plan after five months of work

Haze of smoke from U.S. fires blankets region BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo’s future is sitting in a 20-page binder. After five months of interviews with citizens, community leaders, youth and senior citizens, as well as hundreds of hours of council and staff consideration, the document that will guide Nanaimo’s priorities for the next 15 years was unanimously approved Monday. Two councillors, George Anderson and Bill Bestwick, considered the official corporate strategic plan important enough they voted by teleconference from their vacations in Italy and Hawaii, respectively. Anderson set an early alarm clock – 3 a.m. Italian time – to vote in favour. Your Voice, Our Nanaimo is the result of more than 500 workshop and interview participants, 370 survey respondents and more than 3,500 hits on the steering committee’s strategic planning blog. The goal is to get city council, staff and residents moving in the same direction to establish Nanaimo as a premier municipality to work, live and play.

The waterfront is one of six priorities identified in the new strategic plan, approved by council Monday.

This was a question of finding out what people wanted ... council to focus on.

the things you look at change. Wayne Dyer

The plan’s function is to guide council in its four determined pillars of sustainability: social equity, environmental responsibility, economic health and cultural vitality. By identifying those pillars, council and staff will then determine future budgets to ensure the priorities are met. Ken Balmer, spokesman for Rethink (West) Inc., a consulting company that assisted the strategic planning steering committee, said everything in

the plan is community-driven. “This wasn’t a question of drawing something up and sending it out for comment,” he said. “This was a question of finding out what people wanted, what they wanted council to focus on, and the draft followed all of that debate.” The final product cost taxpayers $121,000 and is the first of its kind in Nanaimo. ◆ See ‘PRIORITIES’ /4

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, but sometimes the blaze can be a long way off. The heavy haze, blocking the view of coastal mountain ranges from Nanaimo, is coming from huge wildfires burning across the western U.S., said Marg Drysdale, B.C. Coastal Fire Centre spokeswoman. “There’s multiple fires across the western United States right now,” Drysdale said. “A lot of them are very large fires. People assume it’s just the Colorado fire, but they’re getting hammered down there.” Smoke over northern B.C. also followed the jet stream across the Pacific Ocean from about 190 wildfires burning in Siberia. But Doug Lundquist, Environment Canada meteorologist, said those fires would only contribute a light, even haze in the upper atmosphere. Most of the low-altitude, heavy smoke was carried into B.C. by air flowing north out of Arizona. “With the flow pattern in the lower part of the atmosphere and a strong inversion aloft, we couldn’t see how that Asian air could make it down to the surface,” Lundquist said. A growing wildfire southeast of Merritt, B.C., is also contributing thicker smoke accumulations in the central Interior. “Most of the smoke in B.C. probably came from south of the border and now some is homegrown,” Lundquist said. ◆ See ‘GUIDELINES’ /4

Traffic fine revenue adds up to millions for B.C. communities

city scene

Thief stymied by plastic food A hungry thief looking for a meal was thwarted when he stole two fake breakfast sandwiches from a convenience store. The incident happened Tuesday at about 3 a.m. at the 7-Eleven store at the corner of Nicol and Milton streets in south Nanaimo. An employee told police a man entered the store and stole two breakfast sandwiches that were actually plastic sales props worth about $70 each. When he realized the sandwiches were fakes, the suspect tossed one across the street and pocketed the other. Police found the suspect and fake sandwich at a nearby hotel and returned the prop to the store. Since both items were recovered undamaged the store manager opted not to press charges, RCMP said.

Gridlock Nathan Zvonar, 5, left, Mike McClocklin, outreach scientist, and Jordan Budd, 8, do a close inspection with a grid and magnifying glasses to discover what species of plants and critters lurk in one-metre square of lawn at Deverill Park Tuesday. The effort was part of Science in the Park, a series of free, drop-in science activities for kids put on by the Nanaimo Science and Sustainability Society. The group is working with Nanaimo Parks, Recreation and Culture to host the program Monday through Thursday at Pawson, Deverill, Mansfield and Harewood parks until Aug. 23.

The poor driving habits of B.C. drivers is paying off for communities around the province. Eligible municipalities that pay police enforcement costs directly will share $51.1 million in traffic fine revenue as part of the B.C. government’s Strategic Community Investment Fund. Nanaimo received $1,062,280 in traffic fine revenue, Lantzville $374,729 in a small community grant and the Regional District of Nanaimo $110,543 in a regional grant. The fund includes $45.1 million in small community and regional district grants for local governments with populations under 20,000 to address infrastructure and service delivery priorities. Grants are based on a formula that factors in base amount, population and assessment values. Traffic fine revenue comes from ticket fines and courtimposed fines on violation tickets, and is based on contribution to total municipal policing costs. The government has returned more than $454 million in traffic fine revenue back to B.C. communities since 2004. For more information, please go to www.newsroom.gov.bc.ca.

ever said that 911 doesn’t need to be properly funded. But to go through the route the city was going through, with a tax, is not an appropriate way and obviously not a practical way, if not impossible, from the industry’s point of view, to collect those funds.” Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan said council knew when it made the bylaw it might be challenged. He added that cellular providers already charge a monthly 75-cent 911 cellphone fee to subscribers, but none of it goes to funding the 911 service. “Not one penny of that goes to the city, so the result is that the shortfall is $1 million and has to be picked up by the taxpayers of Nanaimo.” In his reasons for judgement, Justice William Ehrcke said the Canadian Radio-television and

Telecommunications Commission regulates the industry’s billing requirements, and it does not require wireless service providers to participate in any 911 levy. “The salient point is that the city lacks the authority to compel them to enter into an agreement,” wrote Ehrcke. Shawn Hall, spokesman for Telus, said his company would be fine looking at a provincewide system, but it is impossible to collect a “hodgepodge” of municipally imposed taxes. “A provincewide system would be manageable,” he said. “The problem with a series of municipal systems is that it is literally impossible for us to collect this tax. We can’t accurately identify which of our customers live in Nanaimo and which don’t.” reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

A Nanaimo bylaw that would have seen wireless companies collect levies from cellphone users to help pay for the 911 emergency service was quashed by the Supreme Court of B.C. In November 2010, Nanaimo passed the country’s first bylaw requiring cellphone providers to collect a levy from its customers to assist in paying for the central Island 911 service, a move that could have saved Nanaimo taxpayers more than $500,000 annually. Historically, home-based land lines were charged 47 cents monthly to help fund the 911 service. Because of widespread cellphone use and the reduction of land lines, funding drastically decreased over the years as cell-

which is covered by land-line levies. The city created the bylaw to require cellphone providers to pick up the slack and impose a user-pay system, instead of extending the operating cost of the service to taxpayers. Last August, cellphone providers Telus Communications Corp., Rogers Communications Partnership and Bell Mobility filed a petition through the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association challenging the city’s ability to impose a levy on an industry governed by federal regulations. “We think the judge made the most appropriate decision in the case,” said Marc Choma, association spokesman. “This issue has not been about proper funding for 911, I don’t think anyone has

City council meeting adds worldly flavour THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo’s council went high-tech Monday night to accommodate two councillors who wanted to participate in Monday’s meeting, but were in different parts of the world. Coun. George Anderson was on vacation in Italy, while Coun. Bill Bestwick was visiting Hawaii. Both wanted to comment and vote on the city’s first corporate strategic plan, which passed unanimously after five months of public consultation. To accommodate the elected officials, Per Kristensen, the city’s director of information and technology, used a polycom device to tie in both councillors’ phone calls to the Shaw Auditorium’s speaker system. Kristensen said the bigger challenge was making sure Shaw TV, which broadcasts council meetings live on Channel 4, also had a clear audio feed. “We were confident with the auditorium hookup but we were a little more concerned about getting the audio to Shaw,” said Kristensen. “For a first effort it worked very well.” The international conference call for a live televised meeting was a first for city hall. Both councillors phoned a toll-free conference call-in number. Kristensen’s team also had to consider broadcast delays. Anderson, who was also watching online, had an eight-second video delay, but only a halfsecond audio delay. “We advised him to keep the audio on his computer muted so he didn’t get confused,” said Kristensen. “But timing was a challenge because George was on one side of the world and Bill was on the other.” Anderson had another challenge – it was 4 a.m. in his time zone and he had a 7 a.m. departure scheduled to Switzerland. He also tweeted during the meeting. Mayor John Ruttan jokingly asked Anderson how he managed to get everybody in the bistro to stay quiet for so long. The city’s IT staff first tested the system last week to work out the bugs and ensure feedback was eliminated. Kristensen said with the successful trial complete, it is likely the system will be used more in the future when needed. “I believe this is a good step, with the next step being full video conferencing,” said Kristensen.

Vancouver Island’s business and industry leaders pitched their ideas and concerns involving trade with Asia to the federal government. Ed Fast, international trade and Asia-Pacific Gateway minister, met with more than a dozen Island municipal, business, transportation and industry stakeholders in Nanaimo Tuesday on the first stop of a western Canadian tour. “The strategy is to leverage the national geographic advantages we have on the West Coast. Our ports are closer to the Asia-Pacific economies than the ports to the south of us in the United States,” he said. “But we’re going to lose that advantage if we don’t invest heavily in the infrastructure required to make the exporting and importing of goods into and out of Canada more efficient.” Levi Sampson, president of Nanaimo Forest Products, said with the Harmac mill selling 60 per cent of its pulp to China, Korea, Japan and Australia, he’s glad the government is focusing on Asian trade. “The biggest thing that businesses, community leaders and government can do to increase trade within Asia is be present,” he said. “By that, I mean being there. You have to be faceto-face, have meetings over there to build those relationships if you want to increase trade.” Discussions at the meeting included the marketing of seafood products, timber, coal and international education. Mayor John Ruttan said it was important Fast hear first-hand the concerns and hopes of businesses on the Island. “In some cases, they’re wanting assistance from the government and others are looking for recommendations and ideas on ways of opening new markets,” he said. “It’s so important to keep nations like China, India and Korea close at hand, and communications with prospective buyers and sellers is the key to it.” Susan Allen, Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce CEO, said Fast’s visit shows the government is interested in the future of Nanaimo’s business community. “It was interesting listening to the people around the table,” she said. “There were a lot of small businesses that had concerns about exporting and need some answers. The minister was willing to listen to them and take the information back.” Fast said the meeting provided an understanding of the diverse economy on the Island and the opportunities federal, provincial and municipal governments, and the private sectors have to partner up. “Canada has embarked on its most ambitious trade agenda in its history and is committed to using trade as a key driver of economic growth. We received some helpful advice here on how we can do that better,” he said. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Car owner threatened The owner of a car parked in downtown Nanaimo was threatened at knifepoint when he confronted a man accused of breaking into his car on the weekend. The incident happened Sunday at about 1:35 a.m. when the victim went to pick up his car in the Bastion Street Parkade and found a man in the front seat rifling through papers. The suspect pulled a knife from his pocket and threatened the owner when he confronted him. The owner backed off, but two friends ran up Skinner Street to get help and found two Mounties, who ran to the scene. They radioed the suspect’s description to other officers, who caught the suspect the next level up in the parkade a minute later.

Smoke starting to clear ◆ From /1 Smoke accumulating over the province prompted air quality warnings in B.C. Interior communities. Lundquist said air that started flowing in from the Pacific Ocean this week is clearing smoke from the coast. As last weekend heated up, several small wildfires were sparked across the south B.C. coast, including one spot fire near Nanaimo. Drysdale said a spot fire near Nanaimo Lakes Road and South Forks Road was triggered by a burning car shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday. A spot fire is a wild fire under 0.009 hectares in size. “It was a small fire that moved into the trees,” Drysdale said. A three-person forest ministry firefighting crew was dispatched to the area to knock down the blaze and was assisted by Extension Volunteer Fire Department. “It was called in by the public,” Drysdale said. “It’s always wonder-

It’s always wonderful when [people] take the time to do that.

ful when [people] take the time to do that.” Fire crews were sent to the same area again Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. to hose down a small row boat. Nanaimo RCMP said the boat was found smoking on Nanaimo Lakes Road, just past the South Forks Road intersection and appeared to have been dragged onto the road from a gate nearby. So far, police have no suspects and the investigation into the fire is continuing.

Regatta brings the silliness Annual Silly Boat races to hit the harbour this Sunday (July 15) in support of Child Development Centre programs

Not too busy and not too expensive – Nanaimo is just right. The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s annual survey of Island homebuyers paints a stable picture of people who want a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home. Based on conversations with his clients, Nanaimo Realtor Jim Stewart, the board’s past president, said it’s the Harbour City’s recreation opportunities drawing people to those homes, which are affordable compared to nearby cities Victoria and Vancouver. “It falls back to lifestyle,” Stewart said. “We’re going to continue to see that.” The real estate board’s annual buyer profile is based on survey responses from residential buyers on Vancouver Island in 2011. The questionnaire went to 6,034 people, with 1,587 responding. The three-bedroom, two-bath home priced in the $350,000 range, was most popular. The survey also found that nearly 40 per cent of buyers are from outside the Island, with 42 per cent of homes purchased last year intended as retirement properties. Retirees are not interested in the condo life yet, preferring the privacy of a singlefamily home over working with strata or sharing walls with neighbours, Stewart said. The baby-boom generation retire as early as age 55, making Nanaimo retirees active and involved in sports, recreation and the community. “It just reinforces our lifestyle here,” Stewart said. He said the housing market overall is stable, without the large swings plaguing markets around the world. “We’re doing OK,” Stewart said. “A flat market is a good sign for stability when you look at the big picture.”

It falls back to lifestyle. We’re going to continue to see that.

community is on coming out.” This year, 44 teams are registered with a maximum of 56 teams able to compete. Last year 42 teams

participated and the event raised $112,000 for the Child Development Centre. This year’s goal is to raise $125,000. The money helps support the programs and open up spots for children waiting. There are 326 children waiting for services at the centre with the most demand for speech and occupational therapy. While the day is about having fun and raising money for a good cause, there is still an element of competition among those taking part. “We’re in the thing to win it,” said Sandra Aguiar, manager of the Kiyo Salon & Day Spa. “We have some secret plans this year.” The team, Kiyo Commandos, is ready to give other participants some stiff competition, but is ready to

have some fun as well. “It’s a great team thing – it’s awesome, it builds morale,” said Aguiar. To raise money to reach its goal of $1,700, the salon is hosting Makeover Madness Saturday (July 14) from noon to 6 p.m. at its Nanaimo and Parksville locations. Staff are donating time and all the money raised. A minimum donation of $20-$25, depending on the service, is suggested. People are asked to pre-book their appointments because spots are filling up fast, said Aguiar. For more information, please go to www.kiyosalon. com or call 250-716-9916.

BY RACHEL STERN ou know it’s silly boat time when someone dons a pirate costume. “Pirates are a given at the event,” said Michelle Kocourek, Nanaimo Child Development Centre resource development coordinator. Maffeo Sutton Park is going to be filled with people in zany and fun costumes building vessels to participate in the annual Silly Boat Regatta this Sunday (July 15). The regatta is 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Team boat building starts at 8 a.m. Family activities run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The first race begins at 1 p.m. and the grand championship race is at 3 p.m. The event raises money for the CDC to continue running its programs, which helps children in the community develop communication and motor skills and other tools to reach their full potential. Part of the fun at the event is seeing the interesting boat designs participants come up with, said Kocourek. “The whole day is such an eye-catching event – not only the boats are entertaining to watch, but the costumes, too,” she said. “Every year I’m surprised at their imagination and how much they enjoy themselves while doing something for such a great cause.

EDITORIAL

Strategic plan still a bit vague g Nanaimo council passed its strategic plan to identify the priorities which will guide the city into the future. But like the guy in the double-rainbow Youtube video asked, what does it mean? The plan sets out four pillars of sustainability: social equity, environmental responsibility, economic health and cultural vitality. Albeit vague, the 20-page plan does get slightly more specific by DOCUMENT identifying more immediate goals: waterfront enhanceLAYS OUT ment, water, transportation priorities, and mobility, asset managebut offers no ment, community building real surprises partnerships and responsibility through local governin direction. ment. Sounds strangely familiar – isn’t this already the city’s focus? The waterfront is known as the jewel of downtown Nanaimo and council is in the midst of building new infrastructure to secure residents’ water needs. Without defined goals, ‘waterfront enhancement’ could mean anything from extending the Harbourfront walkway to a multi-highrise development. The plan took months of development and consultation with the public through workshops, surveys and blog comments, at a cost of $121,000. It gives council direction from the public and a mandate to implement projects that align with the plan. What it also does is bring city staff and councillors onside with shared goals and priorities, often lacking in the past as the two groups butted heads on policy decisions. But further than that, learning what the plan actually means for the citizens of Nanaimo must wait until budget season, when money earmarked for projects by city council is wrapped around the community-driven mandate. Then residents will know whether the plan is a good one for Nanaimo.

Today you can tour the Mascot mine, a proud historical site with a spectacular climb up the rock face that serves as the Grouse Grind of the B.C. desert. I first discovered Barlee as a reporter at the Kelowna Capital News in the early 1980s, when he did a weekly history show on CHBC television called Gold Trails and Ghost Towns. A bare-bones studio affair with tales and artifacts displayed for host Mike Roberts, the show lasted a decade. Barlee didn’t lack courage, quitting a teaching career in Trail and Penticton in 1969 to start his magazine. On subscription fees and a few classified ads, he built a life’s work that allowed him to walk the boardwalks of history and the halls of power. ◆ Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Fairer ways exist, but not wanted To the Editor, Re: Proportional voting system better reflects people’s will, Letters, June 23. In putting the onus for change on the peoples of Canada – “Over to you, fellow citizens” – Jordan Ellis well reminded me of former Nanaimo MP Bob Ringma, who, upon hearing it suggested that constitutional change was within the grasp of his, as it was then, Reform Party, dismissed the idea (and the one voicing it) by stating that change was up to the people. In both instances, we’ve been given public testimony to a rather shallow grasp on the subject of political/ constitutional reform – for nothing in the constitution of Canada provides its citizenry with the means to participate in such dialogues save and except for when the dominant block of politicians infesting Canada’s legislatures deign allow them. Even in British Columbia, nothing within the legislature’s bestowed grace of ‘initiative’ can bind the Legislature if it is unwilling ... and for those so inclined, within the decadence of this ‘Faux News’ era, Daniel O’Connell’s notion of “a moral electricity in the continuous expression of public opinion concentrated on a single point” is beyond quaint.

Statute of Westminster; Canada Act ... anyone? Two striking things can be seen in the above collection: 1) that the Constitution makes no stipulation as to how Members of Parliament are to be elected, only that they be elected, and 2) that control over such triflings – as it does with the more weighty issues of constitutional reform – remains the sole prerogative of those who’ve been elected. For the sake of underscore: the function of elections – in that which we lovingly call ‘representative government’ (or, with equal approbation, ‘liberal democracy’) – is to exclude voices from the legislatures; to

under-represent the diversity of the electorate; to minimize the number of viewpoints involved in legislative proceedings; principally, that of dissent. On that note, when Ellis raises the subject of electoral reform, we should hope that he’s being more forthright now than during that tumultuous period in B.C. politics when he and his Green Party associates steadfastly refused to discuss the obvious shortcomings of that bastardized transferable ballot system, BC-STV, to which he and the Green Party had affixed their brand. Yes, there are better – as in fairer (more representative, even) – ways to apportion seats in our legislatures, but the onus of acquisition rests on the shoulders of those who most benefit from Canada’s continued employ of single-member plurality. Which is to say, how might the citizenry – which, not being a person recognized by Parliament or the Constitution, has no political power – redeem that thing which does not wish to be redeemed? Not at all unlike the conundrum John Locke spoke of when the executive power is allowed to be made a part of the legislative power. David S. Dunaway South Wellington

Nanaimo’s south end suffers from dearth of park space To the Editor, This city has nice things all over the place, except the south-end community. Yes, there is a cornerlot playground beside the former Hells Angels club and a half of old Princess Royal schoolyard – that’s it for any parks. So, is the south end of Nanaimo ever to see nice amenities? We have the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association, and Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation,

the committee that oversees it and a board for some other reason, just to have one I guess. About 22 hectares of railway land is for sale at less than $8 million. Why has the city not bought this to turn it into a park? It’s the only chance we’ll get to have trees and gardens down there. Cruise-shippers could suggest a tree from their country, adding to the heritage trees nearby. Neil Saunders Nanaimo

The right amount of iron in the body is a good thing. Too much and the scenario can potentially turn deadly. Bob Rogers, Canadian Hemochromatosis Society executive director, will be in Nanaimo Tuesday (July 17) to talk about the country’s most common genetic disorder, hereditary hemochromatosis. This potentially fatal condition is actually caused by a defect of iron metabolism and can lead to iron overload in vital organs, joins and tissues. The good news, says Rogers, is that the complications are prevent◆ BOB ROGERS offers a able if a diagnosis free public presentation is made before the on hereditary hemochroexcess iron causes matosis – iron overload irreversible dam– Tuesday (July 17) at 7 a g e. T h e b a d p.m. at Beban Park. news is that while hemochromatosis is common, the tests to detect it are not widely performed. “There are simple blood tests, serum transferrin or transferrin saturation that can be done to screen people for the disorder. These tests are not part of a general medical checkup, they have to be specifically ordered on a blood lab requisition form. We’ve been lobbying for years to get more tests done early to detect the problem.” DNA testing can confirm the presence of the three mutations known to cause hemochromatosis, he said. About 1 in 300 people are affected. In his presentation, Rogers traces the history and possible origins of the disease. The Canadian Hemochromatosis Society was established to create awareness about this poorly understood but common disorder so that early diagnosis would become the rule rather than the exception. The society provides information and support to those adversely affected by iron overload. Rogers speaks at 7 p.m. at Beban Park Social Centre, Room 3.

We can’t live without clean water. Canada is blessed with an abundance of lakes and rivers and has a global responsibility to manage them well. But if we really want to protect freshwater supplies and the ecosystems they support, we must understand how human activity and natural disturbances affect them. The world-renowned Experimental Lakes Area in Southern Ontario has served as an outdoor laboratory for this purpose since 1968. By manipulating and studying conditions in 58 small lakes and their watersheds, scientists there have made many discoveries about the effects of human and natural activity on freshwater ecosystems and fish. Over the past 45 years they’ve taught us about the impacts of acid rain, mercury pollution, nanoparticles, nitrogen overload, climate change, fish farming, and many other issues. That’s about to end. The federal government announced it will close the unique facility in 2013. It’s an odd decision, especially considering that it costs just

Herb Dhaliwal and David Anderson wrote, “Canadians are entitled to know whether these changes were written, or insisted upon, by the minister of fisheries or by interest groups outside the government. If the latter is true, exactly who are they?” It’s a valid concern. The media obtained government documents showing that Enbridge, the company behind the dual Northern Gateway pipeline proposal, lobbied the government heavily before the changes were brought in. Documents also indicate that pressure from Enbridge was partly responsible for the government’s decision to pull out of a joint marineplanning process on the Pacific North Coast between industry, First Nations, citizens’ groups, and conservation organizations. One can’t help but notice that many recent cuts and changes are aimed at programs, laws, or entities that might slow the push for rapid tar sands expansion and pipelines to the west and south, along with the massive selloff of our resources and resource industry to

Traffic stop yields arrests Nanaimo Mounties discovered drugs cash and a man unlawfully at large from prison when they stopped a car on the weekend. Police pulled the car over Friday at 7:24 p.m. at the intersection of Estevan and Brechin roads. Passengers in the black 1988 Honda included Bryan Bosak, 30, who is serving weekends at Nanaimo Regional Correctional Centre for a fraud conviction. He was supposed to be back on the prison grounds at 6 p.m. Bosak was arrested and held in custody over the weekend to appear in Nanaimo provincial court Monday. The search turned up a small quantity of drugs and cash as well. Investigators have also recommended charges of driving while prohibited and breach of undertaking against a Nanaimo man, 29, who is known to police. He was released on a promise to appear in Nanaimo provincial court at a later date. A third occupant of the car was released without charges and the investigation is continuing.

NANAIMO WORKING GROUP ON HOMELESSNESS

Chinese state-owned companies, among others. Any research or findings that don’t fit with the government’s fossil fuelbased economic plans appear to be under attack. The National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy, for example, warned that failing to address climate change would have both economic and environmental consequences. The government also axed that arm’slength agency, under the guise of saving $5.5 million a year. Development is important, but when it’s focused on a single polluting industry, at the expense of other economic priorities and the environment, it doesn’t make sense. When industry and government go to such extreme lengths to promote a short-sighted and narrow interest, it’s an affront to the democratic traditions that Canadians of all political stripes have built over the years. ◆ Written with contributions from David Suzuki Foundation editorial and communications specialist Ian Hanington.

Science graduate earns scholarship

I A

VIU ALUMNUS given $17,500 award toward research project. BY BRUCE PATTERSON

Nanaimo university student is the recipient of a prestigious graduate scholarship. Angeline de Bruyns, a bachelor of science graduate (major in biology and minor chemistry) was awarded a Canadian Institutes of Health Research Frederick Banting and Charles Best Canada Graduate Scholarship master’s award worth $17,500. “My family and I were ecstatic when we heard the news,” said de Bruyns. “Receiving this award truly means all my hard work and commitment while studying at VIU has paid off.” De Bruyns sees the scholarship as further reassurance to her parents they made the right decision to immigrate to Canada from Namibia and offer their children greater educational

opportunities. She is also grateful to Vancouver Island University faculty and staff members who encouraged her to apply for the prestigious award. Biology professor Sue Sanders says de Bruyns clearly earned support from VIU. “I have never encountered anyone so dedicated to her academic career,” said Sanders. “Angeline exemplifies excellence, dedication, and a passion for science that is rare and she is a most deserving recipient of this prestigious award.” De Bruyns will work under the supervision of David Dankort at McGill University to undertake her proposed cancer research, which focuses on genes and melanoma malignancy and metastasis. She is one of 184 students across Canada offered the award. De Bruyns plans to head to Montreal in late August to begin her two-year master’s program. In the meantime, she is working in the genomics lab of VIU’s Centre for Shellfish Research.

Chiropractic Christmas stocks Sally Ann shelves

Christmas is coming early to the Salvation Army thanks to the efforts of the Lifehouse Chiropractic Studio. During the months leading up to, and through December, donations for organizations helping the hungry are needed and it is usually the time when people give the most. But come July and its warm weather, people tend to forget that local food

banks and charities are still in need of donations. In an effort to fill the food shelves at the Salvation Army, Lifehouse Chiropractic Studio has set July 25 as Christmas in July, adjusting its clients by donation of food items. “This is a great way for us to acknowledge the patronage of our existing clients,” said Norm Detillieux of Lifehouse. “It is also a great chance for us

to give back to the community that is our home and that has given us so much. We anticipate collecting an outstanding amount of food for the Salvation Army.” Rob Anderson, Salvation Army community ministries director, said it’s the overwhelming support from individuals and businesses like Lifehouse Chiropractic that allows the Salvation Army to pro-

vide the services it does. Along with the complimentary adjustment for the food donation, Lifehouse offers people not under chiropractic care to come in and explore what adjustments could do for them by offering an initial consultation and examination for a food donation rather than the usual $100 fee. To learn more about Christmas in July, please call 250-740-0333.

SHAWLS HELP individuals deal with grieving.

Nanaimo Community Hospice wants to provide comfort for those seeking grief and palliative support, but it needs a little help. Vo l u n t e e r s a r e needed to knit and crochet comfort shawls – colourful, soft blankets for people using Hospice’s services. Anyone interested can sign out a kit and a pattern put together by Hospice volunteer Melody Lang. The yarn has been donated from a variety of sources, and hospice estimates each shawl will require about 25 hours to complete. Knitters with their own pattern and yarn are also welcome to donate their creations. “These shawls are like a big warm hug

and are given to individuals who come to us for support,” said Shannon Farahbakhsh, Hospice prog ram coordinator. “Shawls are picked to reflect the unique needs of the Hospice clients, keeping in mind their preference for colours or textures. The shawls provide comfort when people are often at their most vulnerable.” Since 2007, Hospice volunteers have spent 4,100 hours knitting 165 comfort shawls for people who are either dying, caregiving or grieving a loss. Anyone interested in helping out with this knitting/crocheting project can call 250758-8857 to arrange to pick up a kit and find out more about this program. As well, Hospice is recruiting for its fall volunteer training. For more infor mation, please go to www. nanaimohospice.com.

Guitar player returns to original tunes

Jo Burt, a former bassist for Black Sabbath, performs his original music at Diners Rendezvous July 20. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

Jo Burt, who toured with Black Sabbath, plays his own music Born the son of one-half of a piano-playing duo, Jo Burt was destined for a career in music. At age five, he and his cousin performed showtunes on piano for his parents’ guests. His mother was a dancer and his ◆ JO BURT plays Diners father was one of Rendezvous July 20.

Burt, who later toured with Elton John, Brian Setzer and Black Sabbath during the Eternal Idol tour, taught himself to play rhythm guitar at age 12 on an instrument he got as a Christmas present. Paying gigs throughout his teen years led to an invite to play on The Troggs tour of the U.S. and involvement with the Tom Robinson Band, where he earned dozens of songwriting credits on the band’s multiple albums. His session work includes spots with Freddie Mercury and Bryan Adams’s band. Throughout his successful career, Burt always wrote his own music and focused primarily on that in the past six years. He describes his sound as rock and spaced-out folk-esque tunes. After fatherhood, Burt’s priority became his family and his two sons. It wasn’t until he was sure his family was stable, grounded and thriving that he decided to hit the road again with The Sweet and tour. Once the tour was complete, he decided to tour again, this time focused on his own music and sharing it with fans.

Outdoor cinema lights up downtown Nanaimo park for families It’s like a modern, environmentfriendly drive-in movie. Fresh Air Cinema offers families the opportunity to see a movie on the big screen while enjoying the warm summer night outdoors. At dusk on Wednesday (July 18), the four-storey inflatable movie screen in Maffeo Sutton Park will light up with a Robin Williams movie about a jungle board game adventure that causes havoc in the city. A licensing agreement prevents the

company from publicly naming the film. Fresh Air Cinema works alongside Cinema4Change, a not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to use the power of film to strengthen communities and improve lives. “Proceeds from the Nanaimo event this year will be directed to Success by Six,” said Jason Bashnick, cinema organizer. “We believe our event provides them with a great way to raise awareness and important funds to continue the work they do.”

QQuickfacts ◆ FRESH AIR CINEMA outdoor movie at Maffeo Sutton Park Wednesday (July 18). Activities at 6 p.m., movie at dusk. Free.

The Nanaimo screening is one of nine on Vancouver Island, with festivities starting at about 6 p.m. “Building on previous year’s success,

we are very happy to have partnered with Coastal Community Credit Union to present this series for the fourth year in a row,” said Bashnick. “We see such a social atmosphere before the event where friends and family just relax and enjoy each other’s company.” Fresh Air Cinema will present close to 400 outdoor movies throughout Canada in 2012, including over 150 in B.C.

It was apparent to the founding members that Valagao’s diverse skills were exactly what West of Hell needed to realize the band’s ultimate vision.

ously tight rhythm section they possess today. With the music locked down all they needed was a frontman. Having searched without success for perfect vocalist locally, the band decided to continue the hunt in Vancouver. In 2009, the four members uprooted their lives and moved to the other side of the world. In order to share their vision and establish West Of Hell in a larger scene, they needed a singer that was more than just a screamer, which drastically narrowed the possibilities. The band played a series of shows as a four-piece

West of Hell formed in New Zealand with the objective to create a sound that would preserve their legendary influences, while having modern elements. This blend would evolve the music boldly into the future of metal. Founded in 2002 by Ivan Vrdoljak and Andrew Hulme, the duo spent the early months writing, learning and practising. They then reached the point where a second guitar was needed. After a long, arduous search, friends finally directed them to Sean Parkinson. Parkinson found an instant chemistry with Vrdoljak and Hulme. The driven trio immediately got to work, writing songs and forging their trademark sound. Finding the right bassist was also difficult, but two years of monitoring the grapevine led to the discovery of Jordan Kemp. Jordan quickly bonded with his West of Hell bandmates, creating the thunder-

Best fastball teams play at fast pace BY GREG SAKAKI

I

THE NEWS BULLETIN

B.C.’s best fastball teams are about to enter the fray. Cedar’s Wheatsheaf field complex is playing host to Softball B.C.’s senior men’s championships starting Friday (July 13). The tournament is technically senior B, but with no senior A teams in the province, any of B.C.’s best teams were invited to throw down at the diamond. Two local entries – the host Wheatsheaf team and the Parksville Budget Red Sox – will take on three Victoria teams and one Abbotsford squad. The opposing teams are all expected to be strong. “In a tournament like this, you can’t take anybody for granted,” said Blake Hunter, Wheatsheaf second baseman. “If somebody gets hot it’s anybody’s tournament to win.” Todd Belton, Wheatsheaf shortstop, said with so many tough pitchers, the games tend to be low-scoring, so the importance of defence and small ball is magnified. The Wheaties are adding a few extra players for the weekend, and other contending teams will do the same. It should make for some unpredictable and entertaining matchups. “Especially with the calibre of ball that’s here this weekend, and having some of the best teams from all over the province,” said Hunter. “It’ll be a good tournament and anybody that comes out to watch

is definitely going to enjoy the ball.” The Wheatsheaf players are counting on the biggest share of that fan support. It’s the first time they’ve hosted provincials at their home park, and the first time Softball B.C.’s senior men’s provincials have been held at a private field.

“We want to give back to [our sponsor], bring in teams from out of town, show our families and everyone what we do on the field,” said Belton. Hunter said his team feels most comfortable playing at the Wheatsheaf fields. “Myself, I’ve grown up here and this is a second home. Same for the rest of the guys.

It definitely gives us an advantage. It looks like we’ll have a lot of fan support, and that will be good for the boys.” GAME ON … Wheatsheaf ’s first game is Friday (July 13) at 6:30 p.m. against the Victoria Thunder. The tournament final is Sunday at 1 p.m. Admission is free all weekend. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The Nanaimo Timbermen didn’t handle adversity very well last weekend, but they have a couple more chances this week to make good. The Coastal Windows Timbermen (5-5-1) play the Burnaby Lakers on Friday (July 13) on the road, then host the Maple Ridge Burrards on Saturday. The T-men had won three in a row before last weekend, but then had some scoring troubles when they ran into the Western Lacrosse Association’s first-placed Langley Thunder. “We got away from our game plan and we panicked and I hadn’t seen that all year,” said Art Webster, coach of the senior A Timbermen. “I think it was out of frustration that the ball wasn’t falling in the net for our guys.” If a shot was stopped, or struck a post, then the T-men would feel sorry for themselves rather than sprint back to the bench. “We can’t be giving [opponents] transition goals while we’re not putting the ball in the net,” Webster said. “I said, to really simplify things, just put the ball in the net.” The coach said his players are fit and up to the task of playing in back-to-back games. “I don’t think it’s a physical thing, it’s a mental thing,” Webster said. ◆ See ‘TIMBERMEN’ /B3

DBL T-men honing game

CALENDAR ◆ July 13 - B.C. Senior Men’s Fastball Championships. Wheatsheaf vs. Victoria Thunder. Wheatsheaf field complex, 6:30 p.m.

BY GREG SAKAKI

“We’re not really too worried that we’re not able to compete with these teams,” said Mike Maughan, coach of the DBL T-men. “It’s just a matter of getting our game sorted out before playoffs, when it matters.” On Sunday the Rebels broke open a third-period tie to go up by three, but the Timbermen scored twice in the dying moments to make things interesting. “The guys battled really hard,” Maughan said. “Even when we were down three goals near the end of the game there, we didn’t quit.” Shawn Swanson had

Right now, the Nanaimo DBL Timbermen are still a goal or two behind the league’s best team. They hope to make up that difference by playoff time. The senior B T-men (10-7) lost 9-8 to the first-placed Valley Rebels on Sunday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre, a day after defeating the Royal City Capitals 17-10 at the NIC. The results leave the Timbermen in fourth place in the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association, just four points out of first.

Coal Miners have blast at ballpark

I

SENIOR MEN’S ball team at home this weekend.

The Nanaimo Cross & Co. Coal Miners blasted off at the Canada Day Baseball Blast tournament and will look to maintain that momentum for the rest of the summer. The city’s senior men’s baseball team reached the final of the tournament, losing the final July 1 to the Seattle Studs by a 3-1 score. The Coal Miners won four out of their six games at the tourney.

“By far our best weekend as a team,” said Jeff Vickers, Coal Miners player, in an e-mail. The tournament could have been even better, as Nanaimo had the tying run on base at the end of that final game against the Studs. In round-robin play, the Coal Miners defeated the Northwest Honkers 6-3 and the Fraser Valley Chiefs 12-5, then lost 12-3 to Burnaby Collegiate. In the playoff round, Nanaimo edged Burnaby 5-4, then handled the Kamloops Sun Devils 11-6 in the semifinals. In the first game, Joey

Benda threw a completegame victory with 10 strikeouts and Darren Kolk and Donny MacQuarrie had two hits each. In the second game, Kolk hit a three-run home run, Vickers was 3-for-5 and Dale Ballance went 2-for-3. Frank Kaluzniak was the winning pitcher. In the blowout loss, Ballance hit two home runs and was 3-for-3. The first playoff game saw pickup pitcher Sean Laing earn the win, with Ballance leading the offence with two hits. Kolk struck out seven over six innings in the semifinal

victory and Greg Wallace had a huge game with two home runs and five RBIs. Jake Salter added two hits. In the final, Benda allowed only one hit over 4 2/3 innings. Kolk went 3-for-3 and Jordan Blundell was 2-for-3. The Miners were less successful this past weekend on a road trip to the U.S., but look forward to returning to their home park Saturday and Sunday (July 14-15) to host doubleheaders against the Langley Blaze and the Coquitlam Angels, respectively. Game times are noon and 2:30 p.m. both days at Serauxmen Stadium.

◆ From /B1 When it comes to the mental side of the game, the coach expects his players will be in the right frame of mind to win a lacrosse game. “They’re not happy, so they’re going to rebound and we’ll go hard,” said Art Webster. “Burnaby’s not going to be easy but we’ve got the team to beat them and we’ve just got to put it on the floor.”

Inbrief

Expired medication hazardous Poisoning is the fourth leading cause of injury, death and permanent disability for Canadians of all ages. Statistics from Safe Kids Canada show children are most at risk, with an estimated half

of all poison exposures occurring among children younger than five years old. Medication is the leading cause of poisoning in children. Even small amounts of adult medication can be fatal to a child.

Parents and caregivers can dispose of medications safely by returning them freeof-charge to any pharmacy. Other causes of poisonings are household cleaners and personal care products improperly stored or taken out of their original containers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By removing expired and unneeded medications and hazardous products, you will be making your home safer for everyone. However, dumping the product into the toilet or the garbage is not good for the environment we share and the ensuing contamination may eventually be bad for everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Richard Stanwick, Vancouver Island Health Authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief medical health officer â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope that by highlighting this issue, the public will become aware of where and how to safely dispose of hazardous waste.â&#x20AC;? Safe Kids Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is to lead and inspire a culture of safety across the county. For more information, please go to www. safekidscanada.ca.

Explorer always up for an excursion BY ROB BEINTEMA

C

hange is the only constant in the auto industry. And one of the more notable changes in recent history would have to be the remodeling of the Ford Explorer. The Explorer debuted as a successor to Ford’s Bronco in 1990, and it soon became a benchmark product in the SUV segment, riding a twodecade wave of truck popularity. It was a best seller, perfectly timed for a peaking SUV era. But that truck era is over. And the SUV formula of the ’90s – a mix of minivan-style, uprightseated family utility, marketed with a whole lot of macho off-road ballyhoo and posturing – has shifted to a more practical design in a burgeoning crossover niche. Crossovers are sort of dialed-down SUVs, less fuel-thirsty and better behaved with more civilized road manners. Ford doesn’t label the new Explorer as a crossover, because they don’t want to get wishy-washy about the vehicle’s still potent towing legacy and off-road respectability.

The 2012 Ford Explorer, a mid-size SUV that can hold up to seven passengers, shed its trucky roots last year for the ride, handling and improved fuel efficiencies of unibody crossover construction.

But the design follows the crossover formula, shifting radically from the traditional ladder frame truck chassis to unibody construction. Last year’s 2011 Explorer debuted as a completely reinvented sport utility vehicle, designed with new powertrains, new larger

dimensions and with improved levels of fuel efficiency, safety, technology, capability and quality. The Explorer has grown into a real sevenpassenger capable vehicle and, despite the size increase, designers managed to trim 45 kilograms through the use

e t u l a S e W imo’s Nana

of lightweight materials like the aluminum hood. Since it was reengineered from top to bottom last year, you wouldn’t expect much change for 2012, but this year features the debut of an all-new 2.0-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder engine designed to deliver class-leading fuel

economy. Ford has also expanded the Explorer’s colour palette with new exterior shades. The Ford Explorer comes in three trim levels – the base vehicle, XLT and Limited. Add in the two-engine selection, front-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive choices and you wind up with a

wide array of available models. Under the hood, Explorers start with a standard 3.5-litre Ti-VCT V6 engine that makes 290 horsepower. This V6 improves on fuel efficiency numbers of the past and is mated to Ford’s six-speed automatic transmission. It is rated at 11.7 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 7.8L/100km on the highway. As tested here, in a FWD Limited trim level, the new optional 2.0-litre direct-injected, turbocharged and intercooled engine was designed to deliver 240hp. All Explorers come well equipped, starting with a load of standard stuff that includes a full suite of airbags, traction control, hill start assist, air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, tilt/telescoping steering with cruise and audio controls, four 12-volt power points, colour LCD displays in the instrument cluster and centre stack with media hub and audio input jack, a six-speaker stereo and more. ◆ See ‘EXPLORER’ /B13

2012 NISSAN ROGUE

The 2012 Volkswagen Golf R hatchback pushes beyond GTI limits with new levels of turbocharged performance appropriate for sunny days and snowy weather.

Golf doesn’t get intimidated

I

AGILE HATCH easily steers by obstacles.

BY ROB BEINTEMA “What will happen when the goose crosses the road?” This isn’t a twist on the old chickencrossing-the-road joke. Honest. It’s just that our driving instructor from Germany was have a little trouble with his English, mistakenly substituting “goose” for “moose”. “What will you do in this situation?” he asked. Good question, actually. A common theory is, if you can’t avoid the animal, aim for its rear end. Moose tend not to have a reverse gear. But it was a legitimate poser for driving in northern Sweden where both moose and reindeer are prone to be real road hazards. “If you hit the goose (moose), you will be the loser,” he concluded. Which is why we were paying particular attention to our drills on the slick surface of a cold and icy lake. Sweden’s arctic may seem a long way to go for a drive in the snow. Our reason for coming to Sweden, was to familiarize ourselves with the vehicle used in that program – the 2012 Golf R, the sportiest iteration of VW’s popular compact car, slated to be the

latest addition to VW Canada’s lineup. Volkswagen has traditionally offered a good variety of Golf flavours, with threedoor, five-door, wagon and diesel choices. And for performance buffs, the lineup topped out with the turbocharged GTI. But now there’s an extra option. Think of the Golf R as sort of a GTI-plus. Based on the fivedoor version of the GTI, the Golf R ups the ante in both style and performance, starting with a higheroutput 2.0-litre fourcylinder turbocharged engine that makes 256 horsepower. That get-up-and-go is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission, along with VW’s allwheel-drive system. Because the Golf R is coming to Canada in a limited edition launch of only 500 vehicles, VW is offering only the manual version, which they insist is the preferred customer choice. When a new uberGolf takes its place as the latest hot hatch in the lineup, it should look the part, as well as perform. The Golf R comes with unique styling touches inside and out. Up front, an aggressive R-badged front fascia is accented by jeweled headlamp assemblies with LED daytime running lights. Side skirts and a rear diffuser help the R cut a smooth wake at speed.

The Golf R performs high-speed drifting exercises on the carved tracks of a frozen lake.

Golf R-specific 18-inch alloy wheels, black-painted highperformance brakes and a lowered sport suspension add to this pocket-rocket’s performance cues. In back, another R badge marks the hatchback above prominent centre-mounted dual exhaust finishers. Inside, the 2012 Golf R boasts sport seats, a race-style, flat-bottomed steering wheel and colour-keyed interior trim pieces with contrasting metallic highlights. It was easy to overlook the Golf R’s interior in the midst of all our noisy, skidding and sliding exuberance, but in the rare, quiet moments, I would just sit and soak up the expandedupon ambiance of the R. It showed how much VW has further refined the style and quality of Golf ’s already elegant interior design. Volkswagen Canada has elected to offer the Golf R in one single, all-inclusive trim level, boasting all the bells and whistles.

Besides some of the add-ons already mentioned, the Golf R features sport leather seating, a power sunroof, a start/stop ignition button, touchscreen navigation and Golf R trim that includes the instrument cluster, gear shift knob and steering wheel badging. For the dedicated hot hatchback fans who manage to snatch up the last of the limited run of VW’s ultimate expression of Golf, this poised performer blends benchmark refinements and urban civility with the kind of cuttingedge performance and all-wheel drive security that makes either downtown driving or country road cornering a joy. Picture yourself blipping the throttle, downshifting through the cogs, the trees just a blur as you blast past, swerving your way through the curves of some lonely mountain road. Heck, you might even slalom past the occasional goose, or, umm, moose.

SRT Motorsports recently completed the first on-track test of the new 2013 SRT Viper GTS-R with team driver Marc Goossens at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, S.C. “This was a moment that we’ve all been looking forward to since the unveiling of the car at the auto show in New York,” said Goossens. “We had a lot of expectations there since we were all so motivated to go

ahead and drive it; it did what we expected. “It responded in a very positive way; it was a pretty good first test that we had there.” “Over the next couple of months, we’ll be at several different racetracks, several different environments to really improve the car’s abilities as well as find any weaknesses or issues that could arise that could eventually cost us a poor race result or a poor race finish,” said Gary Johnson, road racing manager at SRT Motorsports. The SRT Viper GTS-R is expected to compete in the American Le Mans Series GT class later this year.

Explorer intends to stay on leading edge of segment

Advertorial

◆ From /B9 As tested here, the Limited version ups the ante significantly with leather appointments, cool ambient lighting, a power liftgate, rear view camera, 110volt power outlet, upgraded audio system and more. Ford has had a lock on interior design for years with the handsomest cabins in the industry and the Explorer expands on that with new standards of interior design excellence. Personally, I’d opt for the more intuitive buttons and knobs, but the contem-

porary instrumentation inside this Limited version will no doubt delight techsavvy customers. The interior is roomy and very comfortable with a spacious second row and acceptable entry to the third row for kids or occasional occupants. Cargo room is rated at 595 litres behind the third row, 1,240 litres behind the second row and 2,285 litres behind the first row. And this is all wrapped up in an exterior body package that adds a new premium flavour.

It’s hard to sum up a vehicle like the Explorer, with this much inherent complexity and so many relatively new features and technologies offered in such a wide variety of trim levels and choices. Yes, it’s changed significantly. But the 2012 Ford Explorer remains a hard act for competitors to follow and, with a new fourcylinder engine bolstering the lineup even further, this new version of an old icon continues to set the standard for SUVs capability and quality.

AUTO KNOW … Ford is researching new technology enabling management of in-vehicle communications based on the assessed workload of the driving situation. The system would use radar sensors to monitor traffic, and combine that with input from the driver’s use of the throttle, brakes and steering wheel. It would then come up with a workload estimate that could be high enough to determine, for example, that it isn’t a very good time for an incoming phone call to ring inside the cabin.

Under the hood, the Explorer lineup starts with a 3.5-litre TiVCT V6 or an optional turbocharged 2.0-litre.

AGILE HATCH easily steers by obstacles.

BY ROB BEINTEMA “What will happen when the goose crosses the road?” This isn’t a twist on the old chickencrossing-the-road joke. Honest. It’s just that our driving instructor from Germany was have a little trouble with his English, mistakenly substituting “goose” for “moose”. “What will you do in this situation?” he asked. Good question, actually. A common theory is, if you can’t avoid the animal, aim for its rear end. Moose tend not to have a reverse gear. But it was a legitimate poser for driving in northern Sweden where both moose and reindeer are prone to be real road hazards. “If you hit the goose (moose), you will be the loser,” he concluded. Which is why we were paying particular attention to our drills on the slick surface of a cold and icy lake. Sweden’s arctic may seem a long way to go for a drive in the snow. Our reason for coming to Sweden, was to familiarize ourselves with the vehicle used in that program – the 2012 Golf R, the sportiest iteration of VW’s popular compact car, slated to be the

latest addition to VW Canada’s lineup. Volkswagen has traditionally offered a good variety of Golf flavours, with threedoor, five-door, wagon and diesel choices. And for performance buffs, the lineup topped out with the turbocharged GTI. But now there’s an extra option. Think of the Golf R as sort of a GTI-plus. Based on the fivedoor version of the GTI, the Golf R ups the ante in both style and performance, starting with a higheroutput 2.0-litre fourcylinder turbocharged engine that makes 256 horsepower. That get-up-and-go is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission, along with VW’s allwheel-drive system. Because the Golf R is coming to Canada in a limited edition launch of only 500 vehicles, VW is offering only the manual version, which they insist is the preferred customer choice. When a new uberGolf takes its place as the latest hot hatch in the lineup, it should look the part, as well as perform. The Golf R comes with unique styling touches inside and out. Up front, an aggressive R-badged front fascia is accented by jeweled headlamp assemblies with LED daytime running lights. Side skirts and a rear diffuser help the R cut a smooth wake at speed.

The Golf R performs high-speed drifting exercises on the carved tracks of a frozen lake.

Golf R-specific 18-inch alloy wheels, black-painted highperformance brakes and a lowered sport suspension add to this pocket-rocket’s performance cues. In back, another R badge marks the hatchback above prominent centre-mounted dual exhaust finishers. Inside, the 2012 Golf R boasts sport seats, a race-style, flat-bottomed steering wheel and colour-keyed interior trim pieces with contrasting metallic highlights. It was easy to overlook the Golf R’s interior in the midst of all our noisy, skidding and sliding exuberance, but in the rare, quiet moments, I would just sit and soak up the expandedupon ambiance of the R. It showed how much VW has further refined the style and quality of Golf ’s already elegant interior design. Volkswagen Canada has elected to offer the Golf R in one single, all-inclusive trim level, boasting all the bells and whistles.

Besides some of the add-ons already mentioned, the Golf R features sport leather seating, a power sunroof, a start/stop ignition button, touchscreen navigation and Golf R trim that includes the instrument cluster, gear shift knob and steering wheel badging. For the dedicated hot hatchback fans who manage to snatch up the last of the limited run of VW’s ultimate expression of Golf, this poised performer blends benchmark refinements and urban civility with the kind of cuttingedge performance and all-wheel drive security that makes either downtown driving or country road cornering a joy. Picture yourself blipping the throttle, downshifting through the cogs, the trees just a blur as you blast past, swerving your way through the curves of some lonely mountain road. Heck, you might even slalom past the occasional goose, or, umm, moose.

SRT Motorsports recently completed the first on-track test of the new 2013 SRT Viper GTS-R with team driver Marc Goossens at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, S.C. “This was a moment that we’ve all been looking forward to since the unveiling of the car at the auto show in New York,” said Goossens. “We had a lot of expectations there since we were all so motivated to go

ahead and drive it; it did what we expected. “It responded in a very positive way; it was a pretty good first test that we had there.” “Over the next couple of months, we’ll be at several different racetracks, several different environments to really improve the car’s abilities as well as find any weaknesses or issues that could arise that could eventually cost us a poor race result or a poor race finish,” said Gary Johnson, road racing manager at SRT Motorsports. The SRT Viper GTS-R is expected to compete in the American Le Mans Series GT class later this year.

Explorer intends to stay on leading edge of segment

Advertorial

◆ From /B9 As tested here, the Limited version ups the ante significantly with leather appointments, cool ambient lighting, a power liftgate, rear view camera, 110volt power outlet, upgraded audio system and more. Ford has had a lock on interior design for years with the handsomest cabins in the industry and the Explorer expands on that with new standards of interior design excellence. Personally, I’d opt for the more intuitive buttons and knobs, but the contem-

porary instrumentation inside this Limited version will no doubt delight techsavvy customers. The interior is roomy and very comfortable with a spacious second row and acceptable entry to the third row for kids or occasional occupants. Cargo room is rated at 595 litres behind the third row, 1,240 litres behind the second row and 2,285 litres behind the first row. And this is all wrapped up in an exterior body package that adds a new premium flavour.

It’s hard to sum up a vehicle like the Explorer, with this much inherent complexity and so many relatively new features and technologies offered in such a wide variety of trim levels and choices. Yes, it’s changed significantly. But the 2012 Ford Explorer remains a hard act for competitors to follow and, with a new fourcylinder engine bolstering the lineup even further, this new version of an old icon continues to set the standard for SUVs capability and quality.

AUTO KNOW … Ford is researching new technology enabling management of in-vehicle communications based on the assessed workload of the driving situation. The system would use radar sensors to monitor traffic, and combine that with input from the driver’s use of the throttle, brakes and steering wheel. It would then come up with a workload estimate that could be high enough to determine, for example, that it isn’t a very good time for an incoming phone call to ring inside the cabin.

Under the hood, the Explorer lineup starts with a 3.5-litre TiVCT V6 or an optional turbocharged 2.0-litre.

MANY THANKS to the Air Canada staff at Nanaimo Airport. I’ve always found them helpful and really appreciated them finding an unmarked, unnamed small suitcase recently. Well done. A HAPPY SUMMER and huge thanks to Adam of Shaw Cable for his trouble-shooting expertise. You impressed us with your pleasant and efficient manner. Our chocolate lab also really enjoyed all your attention too.

A GORGEOUS BOUQUET of white irises to Glenda at Costco for going above and beyond to help me get the right colour of the black-out drapes. I really appreciate your phone call, good memory and watchful eye on a busy Saturday. Thank you so much for your extra efforts. A FIX-IT BOUQUET to the VisionArts Eyecare Centre employee for replacing a broken arm on my glasses at no charge. There's a good reason why I keep coming back to you people. A BIG BOUQUET of appreciative customers for Todd, our Coke representative, for getting our order

out prior to the July 1 holiday so we didn’t have to wait two weeks. THANKS TO Coastal Community Credit Union, Nanoose Bay, for drawing my name for the lovely basket of goodies in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. A GARDEN FULL OF BOUQUETS from the family of the late Wayne Aebig. We thank each and every person who showed us that we were not alone in our grief. Thank you so much for the outpouring of love, support, cards, flowers, donations and meals. A special thank you to Dr. John Carr, Dr. Hamilton, Dr. Cheung, Dr. MacMillan, Dr. Sally Smith, all the NRGH nurses and home care nurses, who cared so wonderfully for an amazing man. Thank you also to the staff in Qualicum Naturopathic Clinic and Nanaimo Community Hospice. This man will never be replaced, we only hope that the lessons he taught us live on forever. Much love from Sharon and the Aebig family. PERSONAL THANKS to the Country Grocer florist who made me feel special when I was feeling so down on Canada Day.

A BOUQUET to the handyman who took down the dead arbutus trees at the entrance to Seabold Trail. You can’t even tell any work was done. Great job. A BEAUTIFUL SPRAY OF PURPLE IRISES to Brad at Sport Mart. I was returning a pair of Vans and you were phoning other stores to place a hold on another size, greeting customers as they came in, catching another customer to offer bike tune up and just doing a terrific job of handling everything with aplomb and a very pleasant demeanor. I complimented him at the time and noted that other staff members were delighted to hear my compliments to and about Brad. Keep up the great work there team at Sport Mart.

A LARGE THANK YOU to Ryan Horkoff and his employees of True West Woodwork. We are so happy with the job you did making our new kitchen cabinets. A BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET goes out to Kevin and Jeremy of Standard Delivery. Thank you so much for

moving my piano and large shelving unit. You did that so fast, efficiently and with smiles on your faces. I am very grateful and will recommend you and your services to everyone. A HUGE BEEF to the channel provider that quoted me a price that doubled after installation. Now it’s hit and miss if I even get the channels I paid for. Two thumbs down. A THOUSAND RABBITPELLET BEEFS to the city for not acknowledging the huge rabbit population problem in southend neighbourhoods. When I called, I was told it’s not the city’s department, call conservation officers. Something needs to be done. A BEEF to the person who complained about their neighbour for not cutting trees down to improve the view. Trees remove carbon from the air, provide shelter for wildlife, shade for us all and protect the ground from soil erosion. I’m not sure your neighbour is the selfish one. A BEEF F to the coffee shop owner who, in a rude and a condescending manner, told us that if we were not going to purchase anything from his café we would have to leave. We were just resting for a minute and there were plenty of empty seats

out front. We had a German student with us and the owner’s manner wasn’t a nice example of Nanaimo's hospitality. You just lost three good customers. Remember, sometimes its not what you say, it’s how you say it. A BEEF F to all the smokers who toss their cigarette butts on the ground without a second thought. It’s bad enough you pollute the air, now you spread your litter for all to live with. A BEEF to the lazy dog owner for putting the dog's poop in my clean garbage. Do you use anybody’s garbage or in our parks? Get rid of your pet as you can't look after it properly. A BEEF F to the plan to re-name Big Ben. I’m a loyal royalist and have no problem with re-naming the Olympic Stadium after the queen. But, Big Ben is a part of history. Even Queen Victoria – who named everything she could after her late husband – didn’t mess with Big Ben. A FLEA-INFESTED BEEF to the City of Nanaimo’s parks department for letting our only fenced and secure dog park to become so neglected. The grass and weeds are so high small dogs disappear and dog poops are difficult to find and pick up. The tall grass in the corner is a great place to pick up ticks as well as fleas. The water fountain has been broken for several weeks and now that the hot weather is here, we sure could use it. I have called to express my concerns but my call was not returned. A NON-PROGRESS BEEF F to even the thought of development going in at Pioneer Park along Dickinson Road. Those responsible for making the decisions should walk the property. It is well-used by many people and should remain walking, jogging and riding trails. A FILTHY BEEF F to the graffiti taggers who are ruining our beautiful city with their vandalism. Target your efforts toward something constructive, not destructive.

$29 Bruno98 Tonolli

November 11, 1938 ~ July 8, 2012 Bruno died peacefully at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital with loving family in attendance. Over the past two years, he fought a brave battle with cancer and amazed everyone with his optimism and positive attitude. Bruno was born in Trento, Italy; the ďŹ fth child of ten born to Silvino and Rosa Tonolli.

Bruno emigrated to Canada in 1959 and came to Nanaimo in 1965 to manage the beauty salon in the new Tally Ho Motel. He later opened his own salon, Brunoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coiffures Ltd., on Wallace Street and moved to Northbrook Mall when it was built in 1967. He operated his business at that location for 45 years. He loved his job and his clients were more than that, they were friends. He built his dream home overlooking Pipers Lagoon, where for 45 years he enjoyed creating wonderful family gatherings, sharing from his garden and keeping his wood pile very full. He was a member of the Quinsam Fishing Club for 35 years and was proud to still hold the record for catching the longest ďŹ sh. Bruno was a charter member of the Kiwanis Sunrisers Club of Nanaimo and a very active member for 26 years. His pet project was the Bullhead Derby for children, which he chaired for 26 years. Remember Bruno by helping others â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what a lovely way to remember this kind, terriďŹ c man. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Funeral Service will be held at Saint Peters Catholic Church in Nanaimo, July 16, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, donations can be made, in Brunoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory, to the Canadian Cancer Society.
