If you see a low-flying helicopter sweeping over the treetops this summer, just think of it as a guy with a metal detector looking for lost change and jewelry on the beach.

Duncan Bay Road residents report improvement in noise situation KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Duncan Bay Road neighbours say noise from the nearby pole peeling plant has subsided but that didn’t keep them from protesting the operation outside City Hall prior to Tuesday’s council meeting. Guy Deller, who coowns Blue Spruce Home Park next door to the pole peeler, said Tuesday night the noise, which neighbour Corinne Matheson once likened to “Chinese water torture,” is now “a lot better.” Deller said he noticed the change in volume earlier that day and admitted the sound had “gradually been getting quieter after they took off three of the six blades” on the debarker. “It went from a high, screechy sound to a BC Ferries horn,” Deller said. This week the noise was cut down even further, to a level that Deller said residents can live with. Pete Wipper, city clerk, said the improve-

Guy Deller, who lives next door to the pole peeling plant, let his truck do the talking outside City Hall just prior to Tuesday’s council meeting. Deller, along with his Duncan Bay and Gordon road neighbours want the pole peeler plant removed from their neighbourhood because of noise, dust, and traffic issues.

ments are thanks to noise abatement measures which were completed Tuesday morning. The modifications include tunnels on both log feed ends of the debarker as well as vinyl curtains on the building that encloses the machine. In March, the city requested pole peeler owner Northern Pressure Treated Wood

implement the noise abatements in response to the plant’s violation of the city’s nuisance bylaw since January. However, construction was delayed after construction blueprints didn’t match the sound consultant’s noise abatement recommendations. Wipper said now that the tunnels and vinyl strips are installed,

“I have received two reports from residents that say the sound has been g reatly reduced and they’re very pleased with the results,” he said. H o w e v e r, t h e r e are still outstanding issues, including traffic and dust generated by the plant. The noise is also not completely resolved. Deller said when

made aware they can only use Duncan Bay Road to Highway 19 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and they must have a pilot car if the load of the vehicle/trailer combination crosses the centre line of the road. As for the dust, Deller said the local health officer and the Ministry of Environment have both said it will look into the issue. He said the plant has been watering down areas of the plant but have left one large pile of dirt dry. Tracey Deller said the bottom line is that the pole peeler should never have been located so close to a residential neighbourhood, and that the plant’s development permit was issued without collecting all pertinent information. “The permit – that’s still our big concern,” she said. “Too many u n a n swe re d q u e s tions.” The city maintains the permit was issued correctly, with all the required information collected.

the sound consultant will take decibel readings from different sites in and around the pole peeler and submit them in a report signing off on the improvements to the plant owner. That report will then be forwarded to city council. Wipper said so far the response to the improvements has been positive.

the poles, or logs, are dropped the ground shakes. His wife, Tracey Deller, said that “is still unacceptable.” Nora Henry, who lives in Blue Spruce Home Park, described the sound in a letter to B.C. Minister Ida Chong. “I sat here this morning, listening to the thundering noise of logs rolling on the ground all morning,” wrote Henry. “It felt like mini earthquakes a n d s o u n d e d l i ke bombs going off.” Residents are also concerned about the logging trucks that round the 90 degree corner on Duncan Bay Road and the safety of residents who have had to back up for trucks coming around the sharp bend. The city said it’s working with the RCMP, the provincial safety branch and the plant operator to infor m contractors transporting logs to apply for and be issued permits for oversized vehicles.

Minister: Huge driver for economy

From left, Mayor Walter Jakeway, past Rotary presidents Craig Gillis and Patricia Gagnon, and Telus’ Gina Pecorelli shovelled the first pieces of dirt through the spray of a fire hose during Tuesday’s ground breaking for the Willow Point Park Splash Park.

Park: Mega soaker ballyhooed Continued from A1 As the sun beat down, Clark stood on the spot of the future home of the splash park. “The kids, on a day like today, they’d be here,” he said. The splash park will have a fire hydrant, hose element, and a mega soaker – the first of its kind in B.C. The mega soaker – a bowl full of water that fills and spills – will be a killer whale, a tribute to Campbell River’s marine heritage. The rest of the park will also reflect that theme, with a whale body and tail and a fishing pole with a salmon attached. The park will be free to access and divided into three sections – one for families, one for teens and one aimed at toddlers. The splash park is a joint project between the Noon Hour and Daybreak Rotary Clubs, the Campbell River Professional Firefighters Association, Telus, and the city. Tyler Saxby, representing the firefighters association, said the idea for the splash park had been floating around for years and it was matter of getting all the groups together. “It was quite an undertaking and there were a lot of hoops to go through,” Saxby said. “It’s been a long, long, wait. Just being around other families, they’re always asking about the splash park and waiting. A lot of families are going to come. It’s going to big.” Saxby figures the park will be

a huge draw for families. He said a hotel near Disneyland attracts families because of its mega soaker, which Campbell River will be the only B.C. community to have. Gagnon said “it just goes to show what happens when a bunch of community-minded groups come together.” Both Rotary Clubs combined to fund $160,000 of the project while the firefighters association put up $20,000. The city’s parks parcel tax will cover $75,000 of the project costs and Telus is providing $123,200. The city will also fund annual operating costs of $30,000. Telus’ donation came from its TV for Good Campaign, in which $100 was donated on behalf of each community member who became an Optik TV customer in the last year. “It’s going to look amazing,” said Telus Senior Community Investment Manager Gina Pecorelli, of the splash park. “We need to thank the customers who signed up. All of (the donation) was raised through local people. Thank you to the community for supporting the program.” The splash park was first brought to city council two years ago and received approval in principle in 2010. It was given final approval by council in November of 2011. The contractor for the project, Rec Tec, was selected by Rotary and is working in cooperation with the city to build the splash park.

ing new deposits. “Forget about a new mine for just now,” said Bell. “Last year, in B.C., approximately $460 million was spent on exploration.” In Smithers alone, a community of about 4,500 people, claim staking and test drilling brings in more than $100 million annually and employs hundreds of people. Bell said Campbell River is well-positioned to do the same. The community has long-supported the Myra Falls and Quinsam mines, and has a wide variety of other businesses to support the mining industry. In fact, the choppers and pilots to be used in the magnetic mapping will be based out of Campbell River. They are expected to soon begin the work and will be finished by the end of September. The data will then be compiled and released to the public next spring online at www. geosciencebc.com. And as soon as the information is released, the project proponents said Campbell River can expect to see more exploration activity. “This is a strategic approach to mining investment,” said Camela Tang, vice-chair of the Island Coastal Economic Trust. “I’m interested to see what lies beneath our feet.” The mapping will take place over a large region of the North Island, north of the 50th parallel. Kirkham said specific regions have been identified due to rock formations, etc. As well, water and

Wednesday’s meeting which, in addition to the magnetic mapping, focussed on biomass research and the consolidated marketing plan. Bell said the North Island could provide a lot of biomass in the form of wood pellets that can be burned to create energy. He also expressed some regret that he didn’t put more time into wood pellet development when he was Minister of Forest. He knows now that wood pellet biomass is a proven technology in contrast to celluloseethanol. Bell advised giving the boot to anyone who comes along and claims they want to build such a cellulose-ethanol plant. In addition, Bell said Korea has a mandate to use 10 per cent biomass to produce energy by 2022. That may not sound like much, he pointed out, but that’s more biomass than can be produced in North America. “The contracts haven’t been filled,” said Bell as he dangled the economic carrot. Finally, the local organizations investigating a consolidated marketing plan include Rivercorp, Campbell River and District Chamber of Commerce, North Island Employment Foundation, Campbell River Creative Industry Council and Campbell River Multicultural Association.

moss samples will be taken from streams and creeks to look for signs of metal and mineral deposits. “So, is there good stuff there?” asked a man who attended the meeting. We l l , e x p l a i n e d Kirkham, the red dots on the map don’t always point to exact spot, but there are indications the North Island holds valuable deposits of platinum and the rare palladium. “It looks good for these elements,” he said. North Island NDP MLA Claire Trevena was also at the meeting and requested that residents be properly notified when the helicopters are flying near their communities. “First Nations have been notified about this,” said Rivercorp Chair Vic Goodman. “This (project) will benefit First Nations…it will provide them with good information on potential resources.”

Continued from A1 potentially valuable deposits of metals and minerals. “It’s a gamechanger…the data is very, very detailed,” said Garth Kirkham of Geoscience BC. Starting in 2005, the provincially-funded not-for-profit organization has been mapping large swaths of the province in order to provide a better game-plan for prospectors and mining companies. “This initiative, by itself, could be a huge driver for your economy,” said Pat Bell, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation. On Wednesday, Geoscience BC along with Island Coastal Economic Trust provided $530,000 and $400,000 respectively to conduct the North Vancouver Island Exploration Geoscience Project. The announcement was made at the Maritime Heritage Centre during the follow-up meeting of the Campbell River Regional Economic Investment Pilot project. The two other projects discussed that are moving forward are for biomass research and a consolidated marketing plan for eight community-based organizations. The magnetic mapping is the big news. While Kirkham noted that such mapping in other areas of B.C. has not, so far, led to the creation of a new mine, it has led to a big spike in exploration. As well, noted Bell, it has helped a few operating mines expand operations by identify-

Council gets earfull about Spring Road repairs KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A Campbell River man fed up with what he sees as city neglect was back at city hall Tuesday night wanting answers. Richard Paquette, a Campbell River tax-

payer for more than 20 years, is no stranger to the council chambers and has been asking for improvements to his neighbourhood for at least two years. At this week’s council meeting, Paquette used his 10 minute delegation to ask council

and city staff if anything is being done to repair Spring Road, where he’s lived for 21 years. “I was told they were going to do ditch cleaning and grass cutting,� said Paquette, who hasn’t seen the city come and do either of

those services. “I’ve been told ‘by this spring’, then ‘by fall’. It’s been three years now, I figured this year they’re going to do something.� Paquette said his neighbourhood roads are riddled with nasty pot holes and broken

asphalt. “It would be nice to have these big holes repaired,� he said. “I’d like to know if (you’re going to be) doing any repairs?� Paquette said all the city has done so far is fill a large hole below the stop sign at Spring

and Park roads with gravel, which doesn’t stay intact. City Manager Andy Laidlaw said he didn’t immediately have the information to answer Paquette’s questions, but Deputy City Clerk Tracey Bate did take down Paquette’s phone

Our View

Retiring MLAs will have no money woes Who says it doesn’t pay to be a politician — even for a blink of an eye? With the B.C. Liberals in a freefall and the provincial election 10 months away, a number of MLAs have decided We say: Entering to leave politics. Much is made by politics is a path some about the sacrifices made by politicians, of the time spent away to setting yourself from family, of the decision to take a break from their career passion — up for life all to serve the public good. And, while it is always admirable to see men and women take an active part in the democratic process, make no mistake — it is indeed a decision that

often pays lucrative dividends far beyond anything a working stiff will ever realize. Surrey-Tynehead MLA Dave Hayer is one of the latest B.C. Liberal to decide against seeking re-election next year. According to Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation (CTF) figures, Hayer’s 12 years in office will give him an annual pension that will start at $47,600 when he turns 65 and climb to $62,900 when he turns 80. The CTF estimates Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger will enjoy an annual pension of $87,700 when he turns 65, one that will rise to $115,700 when he turns 80. All that for 17 years in office. The MLA pension plan is indeed gold-plated as taxpayers chip in $4 for every dollar the MLA

contributes. More maddening is the fact the B.C. Liberals, under then-leader Gordon Campbell, campaigned in the 1996 election against exorbitant pension plans. The NDP won and implemented a reasonable pension plan, one in which the taxpayer would add one dollar for every dollar the MLA contributed. In 2007, however, Campbell reversed his position and brought back a trough-laden pension. Political pension plans at the provincial and federal levels are a disgrace and do nothing to counter the perception (which is reality) that entering the political arena is the path to setting yourself up for life, with your retirement funded well by taxpayers who can barely get by.

Letters

Why the flowers died Re: “Where have all the flowers gone?” Mirror, July 4, 2012 Mr. Larry Sampson, newly-elected councillor in November 2011, is referring to a 200-ft. stretch of landscaping along the Old Island Highway between Simms Road and Forberg Road. My husband and I, have lived here for 21+ years and enjoyed the panoramic view of the mountains, ocean, islands and cruise ships in season. The so-called vegetation plants referred to in the newspaper article survived the warranty period and then died according to Mr. Milnthorp, city general manager. Just plain common sense would prompt Mr. Milnthorp and Mr. Sampson to ask the question “When did the planting take place?” My husband and I, were puzzled as to why this was being done in such cold, freezing and stormy weather and questioned the contractors and landscapers. The answer was that a deadline had to be met in order to receive funding from the government. I suggested that the plants could be paid for and then put aside until later in the spring.

It’s fire season, so no laziness, drunkeness or stupidity

Paul Rudan No, really

There’s a reason for the hazy days of summer: Smoke. There are other reasons, but in recent days it’s smoke and it wasn’t even caused by the guy on Murphy Street. By the time I had arrived Monday morning, the fire was out and the smoke had cleared, but the deputy fire chief wasn’t impressed as walked away from the scene shaking his head and rolling his eyes. And there was the home owner, sheepishly dousing the remainder of his half-burned bush, apparently set ablaze while he was using a propane tiger torch to burn off unwanted grass and weeds! That’s right up there with power washing the driveway when there are

serious water shortages. The smoky/hazy atmospheric conditions also cannot be blamed on the oafs who refuse to properly put out their beach fires. This is an all-too-common occurrence in Campbell River and one day it’s going to lead to draconian restrictions that will affect everyone who enjoys a nice beach fire. I have a hard time trying to understand why a group of people take the time and energy to haul chairs, blankets, towels, food, drink and whatever else they need to the beach, collect driftwood, start a fire, enjoy the evening with family and friends, and then – THEN – not take a measly 10 minutes to properly extinguish the coals at the end of the night.

Too lazy? Too drunk? Too stupid? All the above? Take your pick. However, it’s this type of behaviour that can have significant consequences depending on where you leave the smouldering fire. So now, as an example, we return to the smoky/hazy atmospheric conditions we’ve been seeing on the coast this week. While these conditions have certainly provided for some picturesque sunsets, I can’t think of any other positives provided by massive forest fire smoke blowing clear across the Pacific Ocean. I’m not sure what caused the current forest fires in Siberia and other parts of Asia, but they are the reason we’re seeing the smoky/hazy skies

here in coastal British Columbia. That’s both amazing and disturbing. If anything, I hope it makes people realize that lit cigarette butt they flick out the window, or those few smouldering beach fire coals, could cause a fire that has global impacts. As well, as the summer heats up, camp fire bans are inevitable. But here’s something I learned years ago while camping during the dry season: You can still have that “camp fire” by setting up a few rounds in the pit, place a few lit tea candles on the logs and, voila, instant mini-fire! And, if you’re very patient, you can even roast a marshmallow over the candle light...which, I hope and expect, you put out at night’s end.

We live in a world of electronics There are concerns over smart meters emitting harmful signals, collecting data on your home, maybe spying on you and who knows what else.

Maybe it will tell Hydro if ET is staying at your place. It unfortunately is the future. We live in a world where people have

their cell earphones hanging on their ear, their laptop isn’t far away, their cars are loaded with electronics, their homes have wi-fi and power every-

thing. Cell phones were to cause brain cancer from their use but guess who has a cell phone. My only concern is

I want to know if it is cost effective for me and who pays to power the signal that sends info to Hydro. Don McWhirter Campbell River

Flowers: What happened? It wasn’t poison Continued from A8 ever, they were merely following orders, and the subsequent articles in the newspapers confirmed that the date of completion had been met. Gardeners and farmers do not plant seeds, vegetables and flowers unless the weather is favourable for germination and rooting. St. John’s Wort (a flowering, hardy perennial) was placed in the ground during March 2011, when it was bitterly cold and did not root properly. For a short while, there was a mantle of green which then tur ned brown and I was trying to revive these plants in front of our property by watering during the months of July and August. They did not survive the fall

and winter. The weeds and grass grew rapidly this spring, some to a height of 18-20 inches, but very few St. John’s Wort plants. The soil was tested at a nursery for poison, but none was found. If there had been poison in the soil, it is obvious that the weeds and grass would be poisoned as well. I was so tired of looking at the tall weeds and grass that on June 20, 21 and 22, I spent hours pulling out the grass and weeds and then planted four rows of marigolds in the bare areas and around some remaining St. John’s Wort. On Wednesday, June 27, I brought in several more trays to plant in the upper portion of the area in front of our home. Shortly thereafter, a city employee

drove up and parked his truck in front and began measuring frontage road. I jokingly asked if he had come to thank or pay me for my labour – instead the information given was that at the previous evening’s meeting (Tuesday, June 26), council had voted to replant the area with either turf or plants. I then asked who was going to do the grassmowing, watering, weeding and the additional cost to us taxpayers, but there was no clear answer. T re e s we re a l s o removed around the lift station and the SeaWalk and later replaced (one illegally between two evergreen trees). During the stor my weather, some of the newly planted trees that were not sheltered, were constantly

blown down by strong winds, partially or completely. People on the SeaWalk and city employees were tying up, staking or replanting these trees, but the windy weather continued for a while. During the construction period, we were constantly reminded that the value of our property would rise considerably due to the enhancement and landscaping of the highway. Well, we put up with the noise six days per week (7 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and the daily difficulty of getting in and out of our driveways that was to be expected and at no time did we complain. Yes, we sure have added value now - the stench of raw sewage when opening our windows or stepping

outside. The smell is overpowering from Simms to halfway to Rockland Road and then up to Discovery Passage at certain times. The right thing to do is for the City of Campbell River is just to admit that mistakes were made in order to rush and meet the completion date in order to receive the government funding. Stop blaming and wondering “What Happened?” The plants were definitely not poisoned – they were planted in a great hurry and at the wrong time so the roots froze and died slowly and went to their graveyard. As the song goes: “When will they ever learn?” i.e. city employees – use a bit of common sense. S. Ruth McReynolds Campbell River

Planning for Life Changes I recently attended the funeral of a dear old friend. I was sad for the loss of my 2X14 friend. They had lived a long life but I dreaded how hard it was going to be to live every day knowing I would never see PLANNING FOR LIFE their smile again. Looking back, I couldn’t tell you exactly what I was expecting, but I was unprepared for the generic Sandy Poelvoorde nature of their service. Even the funeral director seemed cold (mental note to self, it’s OK to impart a kind smile at least once). It could have been anyone’s service. It had that “insert name here” quality that anyone who has been to those types of funerals knows all about. I left the service feeling unfulfilled. The purpose of a funeral is to allow the living to put a period at the end of someone’s life sentence. My last chapter for my friend had three periods… It reminded me how important it is to have input into one’s own service. Margaret Verschuur of Final Gifts says: “Thinking about death doesn’t shrink a person; it enlarges them. Each breath I breathe is precious because there are a finite number of them.” It’s not easy to accept death, but tricking ourselves into thinking we’ll postpone it by dealing with it later shortchanges us. If we can make death our companion and, as the poet Rilke says, “hold it to one’s heart gently”, we become free to live more vibrantly. Open yourself to this dark subject – and then reach for your sunglasses!” This article is supplied by Sandy Poelvoorde, Boyd’s Funeral Services Ltd. This article is for information purposes only.

HEROES – On Friday May 11 around 7 p.m., a lady in a red truck hit my brother and sister in laws dog. She only stopped to say she did not see the dog and then she drove off. I found this to be very upsetting. Why would you not apologies to the owner of the dog, or offer any form of assistance? Nikita was taken to the Campbell River Vet when she later had to be put down. I understand it was an accident, however, I do feel the driver of the truck could have showed some compassion. At the same time I would like to thank Sharon and her daughter for offering their phone and any other form of assistance we may have needed. A lady who’s name I did not get but I do know she was paramedic and she helped us get Nikita wrapped in a blanket and moved safely in to the car. To these three woman thank you for your help.

It takes a lot of coordination to throw a party for 320 students who attend the largest elementary school in SD72. Many thanks are due: to our staff and students, our bus drivers who transported us there and back, and to all our parents, especially the barbeque master and Jo and Christina, without whom none of this would be as much fun, or even possible. We are blessed

HEROES – The Sybil Andrews Heritage Society recognizes everyone who contributed to the success of our seventh annual Sybil Andrews Day. We appreciate all the people that helped prepare the garden: Mary’s crew (Betty, Lois, Marlene, Pat, Verna). Most of the crew worked in the kitchen at the event. Merci, Pete for mowing the lawn. Thanks to the Trehearnes for the fall planting that produced all the beautiful spring flowers. Cheers for the Grandmothers for Grandmothers for donating such a beautiful tablecloth for use in the Cottage.

A project to extend sewer service to homes on Quadra Island may be put to a referendum after the Strathcona Regional District failed to get enough project support through a petition. The expansion, if approved, would provide sewer service to 53 properties in the Quathiaski Cove area, near the B.C. Ferries terminal. The project was prompted by several requests from Quadra property owners, who have had to deal with ongoing septic failure. But a petition circulated by the Strathcona Regional District through March and April came back negative. “In order to meet the threshold for approval on this basis the petition would have required at least 50 per cent of the affected properties to consent in writing,” said Brian Reardon, regional district chief administrator, in a report to the regional district board. “The petition failed to attract that level of support from

property owners.” Only 30 per cent of the properties in question gave their approval to a project that would cost each property owner $18,400 in a one-time payment or a $1,400 - $1,600 parcel tax for 20 years. Now the regional district is looking at the best way to move forward with the estimated $975,200 project. Regional district board members are waiting on a report from regional district staff outlining the development of a community engagement process and other ways to gage the level of support for the proposed sewer extension project. One option could be a referendum. “A vote of the electors could be used to conclusively determine the outcome of the extension proposal,” Reardon said. “In this case, the determination of whether or not the regional district could proceed with the bylaws would depend on the number of ‘yes’ votes in comparison to the number of ‘no’ votes cast, regardless of the number of electors who vote.”

Another option is the alternative approval process. Unlike a referendum, which gives everyone the opportunity to cast a vote, the alternative approval process would allow the regional district to proceed with the sewer project unless more than 10 per cent of the electors advise the regional district it would like to instead have a referendum. A third option is tweaking the boundaries of the project. “If opposition to the project is confined to specific areas the board could adjust the boundaries of the proposed extension area and authorize another petition process be undertaken,” said Reardon who noted the regional district first needs to look at how likely each approval process would be to succeed before making any decisions. “At this time it is not known whether the lack of success using the petition method was due to opposition or apathy on the part of property owners, and the level of support experienced to date may not inspire further efforts by the regional district to continue leading on this project,” Reardon said.

An unidentified 74-year-old pilot whose ultralight plane crashed into treetops in the Black Creek area July 7 has succumbed to his injuries. The pilot was airlifted to Victoria General Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries after Comox Valley RCMP responded Sunday at 8:20 p.m. to a report of a plane crash at 8408 Island Highway. The plane was heard to lose power, and crashed into some treetops about 100 feet high, RCMP said. The pilot fell from the plane, landing on the ground below. He was taken to the hospital in Campbell River and later airlifted to Victoria General. The RCMP say they will not release the pilot’s name out of respect to his family and because the investigation into the crash is still underway.

Hospital details unveiled KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The new Campbell River hospital will be larger than the existing facility but don’t expect the full expansion of beds any time soon. Vancouver Island Health Authority has said it will build a 95 bed hospital but not all of those beds will be there when the hospital opens its doors, according to the director of the North Island Hospitals Project. Grant Hollett, the health authority’s interim project director, told city council during a delegation Tuesday night that 95 beds is a 2025/2026 target – that’s eight to nine years after the health authority’s estimated 2017 opening. Some of those beds will be reserved for mental-health and addictions, a service expected to move in part from the Comox Valley to Campbell River hospital. Hollett said all exist-

ing services at the hospital will remain intact but one of the key elements of the project is improved parking. “We’ve heard loud and clear that parking is one of the most critical challenges on the site for patients and staf f,” Hollett said. “When this new hospital is completed and finished, the old one will be demolished completely and the area will be converted to parking.” Conce ptual plans show the health authority would like to have a two-storey parking garage, in a building separate from the hospital. Hollett said the hospital will have 408 parking stalls – currently there are 257. Hollett said during construction, the hospital will lose a number of parking stalls, primarily for staff. “We’re looking at alter nate areas for parking, such as the plateau on the west side of Yucalta Lodge” and possibly around the curling rink and

on Birch Street. Hollett said the health authority is looking into the possibility of using shuttles to get people to and from the existing hospital building. The heli-pad, now located at the back of the hospital near the emergency ward is also expected to be affected. “We’ll have to move the heli-pad off site while we’ re doing construction,” Hollett said. The new 21,000 square metre, $266 million hospital is expected to include a clinical support building available for the University of British Columbia to use as a teaching space and accommodations. It will also include a First Nations wellness centre. The hospital is expected to have an emphasis on singlepatient rooms with a private bathroom to prevent the spread of infections, to reduce patient transfers and falls, and to reduce readmissions and

lengths of stay. Hollett also explained the public-private partnership that both new hospitals in Campbell River and the Comox Va l l e y w i l l o p e rate under. With the agreement, the health authority will still own and control the building and deliver publicly-funded health care services, but an outside, private company will be responsible for maintenance of the buildings for 30 years. The process of creating the new hospital is already underway. A call for qualified contractors was issued in June and closes Aug. 8. After that date, a shortlist of three will be developed and a Request for Proposal will be issued to the companies this fall. The Request for Proposal process is expected to take nine to 12 months and construction is expected to begin in late 2013 or early 2014. Anticipated completion is mid-tolate 2017.

Growing appreciation Hanna Nagtegaal, occupational therapist, and Gayle MacLean, speech/language pathologist, present Dr. Paul Helpard with a gift to thank him for his support to the children and families at Sunrise Resources for Early Childhood Development. In the past 13 years, local dentists have donated over $26,000 to support children with special needs through their Tin Grin and Amazing Brace fundraisers.

Campbell River Living Another day, another project for Ron Francis Octogenarian who once guarded the Royal family spends his days creating, tinkering and helping others PAUL RUDAN

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

If he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing something, 84-year-old Ron Francis doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what he would be doing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a survivor. I enjoy life and I work hard every day,â&#x20AC;? he says at the home he built with his own hands. Growing up in London, England, Francis survived the German bombing raids, hiding in the steel underground bunker buried in the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backyard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember sitting there in ankle deep water,â&#x20AC;? he recalls. In the late 1960s, he survived a serious health scare that nearly killed him. And in 2009, he surv ive d e m o t i o n a l ly when his wife of more than 60 years, Grace, died. He points to the b e a u t i f u l ly - c r a f t e d wood box he built where her ashes lie, awaiting his. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I go, my ashes are going in there too. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be scattered in the salt chuck in front of our house,â&#x20AC;? he says looking at the sparkling water near the Big Rock. But then Francis blinks back a tear and offers a smile, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

going to have wait a while.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just too much too do and too little time for the ever-busy Francis who admits to â&#x20AC;&#x153;spreading myself too thin.â&#x20AC;? His list of projects is exhausting. He greets the visitor with a firm handshake and points to the vintage Tyee rowboat, built by Dr. Dick Murphy, that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refinishing under the carport. Then he waves his arm to indicate the flower gardens, all grown from seed in his cozy sun room. On the kitchen table is the autobiography heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working on along with a print â&#x20AC;&#x201C; saved from the family home in London â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refinishing, and then there are the handbuilt custom glass cabinets that hold his intricately-built wood models of cars, trucks, trains, machinery, jewellry boxes and assortment of carvings. They all stem from his beginnings as a cabinet maker in England where he spent seven years as an apprentice. During the Second World War, Francis joined the Welsh guard and spent several years looking out for the British Royal Family.

After the war, he sent Grace to Canada to join his sister. He would join her in Chemainus after his military stint where he went to work in the sawmill. They raised two children, ran another business and then moved to Campbell River in the mid-1960s. He later worked at the Myra Falls mine, but he also became a fishing guide and ran Coho Charters for 30 years. During this time he also helped form the Guides Association. And just to prove he was a good guide, Continued on Page 20

Thousands of specialized tools (top photo) fill the wood-working shop of Ron Francis, 84, who holds a scale model of a 1934 Chevy, made from at least three different types of wood, all left in their natural colour. Pictured above is another detailed model of a Hitachi excavator which sits in front of the box Francis made to hold the ashes of his late wife Grace. Pictured right is as wood vase Francis made from several different types of wood.

Drive Smart BC Waiting for Pedestrians to Cross As a pedestrian in Vancouver I am feeling increasingly at risk says a visitor to the DriveSmartBC web site. Drivers want to maneuver behind pedestrians as soon as they can. What is the law about proceeding when the pedestrian is still on the street? This question has two answers, depending if the pedestrian is at an intersection with or without operational traffic lights. If the scenario takes place at an intersection with traffic lights, a driver must yield to pedestrians crossing lawfully and then may proceed as soon as it is safe to do so. Drivers must always exercise due care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian on the highway. In this situation, it would be wise for the driver to consider how closely they would appreciate vehicles to pass by them if the positions were reversed. If this takes place at an intersection with no traffic lights or where the traffic lights are not in operation, a driver must not travel on the half of the highway occupied by the pedestrian or where the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the other half of the highway that the pedestrian would be in danger. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience. To comment or learn more, please visit www.drivesmartbc.ca. Cst. Tim Schewe (Rtd.), DriveSmartBC

She sees adults passing along their wisdom to the young, people lear ning from each other and helping each other. She would also like to see more community gardens – decorated with mosaics, of course – where people come together to grow food and flowers, and get to know each other. “I have to try,” says Thomas, a native of Paris, France. “It is a profound thing for me to try this and I want the people to guide this project.

Arts & Entertainment Tunes for Tots at the library As part of its Summer Reading Club programme lineup, the Campbell River library is hosting the Silver Birch String Quartet on Tuesday, July 17 at 2 p.m. This fun and educational journey through music and story-telling is a free family event sponsored by the Vancouver Island Regional Library. The Quartet introduces the members of the string family and their role within an orchestra and concludes with a musical reading of Marie-Louise Gay’s book Stella Fairy of the Forest. Named after the trees inhabiting the area around their home, Sudbury’s JUNO-nominated Silver Birch String Quartet is one of Canada’s most exciting and innovative young quartets. They are currently on a tour of Vancouver Island

and will also be performing on Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. at Trinity Presbyterian Church. The library offers two levels of summer reading programs: ‘Summer Reading Club’ for Kindergarten to Grade 7 and ‘Read to Me’ for pre-schoolers and those who cannot yet read independently. Strange…But True is the theme for this year’s program. Children who sign up receive a fun registration package with a bookmark, stickers, trinkets, and a reading record book in which they are encouraged to keep track of the books they have read. Kids can also attend interesting programs at their local library. Children registering at the Campbell River Branch will receive a list of programs scheduled throughout the summer in their registration package.

Dance like no one is watching at Dance Temple Tired of the late night, crowded bar scene but still like dancing and going out? Well look no further. Local dance teacher and improvisational performer Jade de Trey has created a monthly event called Dance Temple that may suit your dancing needs. The first ever Dance Temple in Campbell River is Wednesday, July 18 from 7-9 p.m. at the Willow Point Hall, 2165 Old Island Highway. “It is an evening of dancing to world beat, Latin, fusion, live and electronic music that is intended to guide people to freely dance like no one is watching. There is no leader or teacher; rather the music will be the guide for this dancing journey. Dance Temple is a place to sweat ones

prayers, boogie one’s blues away, connect with oneself through dance, and possibly meet some new, consciously minded people. It is a safe, sacred and respectful space; a conscious dance event,” says de Trey. Dance temple is an alcohol and drug free event. They ask people to refrain from wearing perfumes or scented products. Generally there is minimal talking on the dance floor as it is a sacred space for movement meditation. People are invited to bring snacks to share if they feel inclined. “I have been hosting Dance Temple in Cumberland with a couple other dance teachers. I decided to branch out to Campbell River and give it a go here,” says de Trey. The evening will

start with ambient and down tempo music for stretching, dance, play and warm up. Then at 7:30 the group will gather for a brief circle to set the intention and then dance until 9 p.m. or a little later. People may come at any time and leave

when they wish; this is an open evening. The cost of is $14 but no one will be turned away

for lack of funds. Children are free. For more information visit www. dancewithjade.ca.

Big Time Out early bird deadline looms The seventh edition of The Big Time Out is just around the corner and fans of this one-ofa-kind event have until this Sunday at midnight to get an amazing deal on a weekend pass to the upcoming celebration. The Big Time Out is back in Cumberland’s Village Park for 2012 and organizers are also adding some exciting new elements to the BTO format that will see multiple venues and street level action as part of the weekend pass offering. Indeed, Cumberland has come a long way since its coal mining days when workers from around the world hauled black rock from the earth to fuel industry and war. Rail lines and coal mines have since given way to bike trails and lively pubs. Now it’s music makers and music lovers who make a pilgrimage to the Village seeking the magic that this little community seems to generate.

One of the more unique performers at the Big Time Out in Cumberland Aug. 18-19 will be Vancouver-based fusion-bellydance company Luciterra.

For the past seven years The Big Time Out has been a pinnacle in this musical mecca with thousands descending on the village each August to hear cutting edge music and feast on amazing

visuals provided by a vibrant local art, dance and circus arts scene. Big Time Out is one of those events that transcends the more familiar definitions of ‘concert’ or ‘festival’. Dancers hanging from

ariel silks, fire spinning belly dancers, and massive inflatables go hand in hand with stunning new music from national and international artists. All of this takes place in tree lined park nestled against a historic Village, filled with quaint turn of the century homes, funky little shops and cafes and residents who seem reasonably happy to see their little Village double in size each summer. T he audience is young at heart with little interest in nostalgia (although few complained about the show from veteran reggae rhythm section Sly and Robbie in 2007). They return year after year to witness the innovation and unbeatable music programming that the event has

become known for. Performers for this August 18-19 include Vancouver based alt rockers Black Mountain, alt- country trio Elliott BROOD, Australia’s Aurora Jane, former Feist sideman Bahamas, Luciterra, The Funk Hunters, Humans, Longwalkshortdock, Morlove, Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers, and Kermal Evans. Local artists inlcude Luke Blu Guthrie, Des Larsen, Pamela Tessmann and Brodie Dawson, The Big Time Out is reaching its arms even more deeply into the Village-proper this summer with venues being prog rammed throughout the downtown.

Just short of his 91st birthday, Dad left with the angels to go from his earthly home to his heavenly home where no pain and sadness can live. He was born on July 10th, 1921 in Winnipeg, MB and had three other siblings, Gordon (June) in California, Frances (deceased), Evelyn (deceased). He is also survived by his wife, Norma, daughter, Georgia (Tony) in Campbell River, grandchildren, Alan in Vancouver, Amara (Cam), and Alison and great grandson, Kody in Victoria. He served in the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals with 3rd Canadian Division in World War II and was wounded in action. Mum and he were married in 1946 and had 65 years together. He started working for Canada Post, but his real vocation and avocation was ministry in the Church where he loved to preach and teach. He served parishes in Lanigan, SK, Regina, SK and North Vancouver, BC as well as other parishes on a temporary basis. Dad loved a good joke, and was ready â&#x20AC;&#x153;at the handâ&#x20AC;? to help people with harvesting, painting or moving. Although, he was an avid Canucks fan, Dad had other sporting interests as well, such as, golf, curling and football. He was active in the Kiwanis Club, and was Padre of the North and West Vancouver branches of the Royal Canadian Legion. I am thankful for the people (and you are many) who made his last journey digniďŹ ed and comfortable, especially to those at New Horizons, to those who came to pray and visit, to Dr. deBruin for your advice and â&#x20AC;&#x153;housecalls.â&#x20AC;? Celebration of Life will be at St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church, Campbell River on July 18th at 1:30pm. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, those wishing to make a contribution in Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name may do so with the charity of their choice or Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots (LAMP) 4966 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 92nd Ave. NW, Edmonton, AB, T6B 2V4.

Sonja will always be remembers for the bright and cheery smile she had for everyone she met even when she was in pain. She had a great love for adventure, sports, the outdoors and her Dog Justice. Sonja was a great cook on the job and for family and friends, always pitching in for family events. In her later years she had joined the Dragon Boat Racers and spent many joyful days paddling with her friends. The Family would like to thank all of their family friends and neighbours, home care nurses, home support, Joan from Hospice, all the wonderful nurses on 3North, Vanessa, the wonderful people Sonja got to know in Hospital, Dr. Sutherland and especially Dr. Kask for all the wonderful care and support over these last 6 months. A very special heart felt thanks to Joyce Ogren, Gwen Langill, Marge Eccles and Tricia Billy for all the love, care and support you gave to Sonja and our family through this difďŹ cult time and many thanks to all the well wishers and visits from friends that Sonja greatly appreciated. A memorial service will be held in her honour to celebrate the life of someone who was so full of life on July 14, 2012 at 11AM at the Trinity Presbyterian Church 145 Simms Road Campbell River, BC.

Kenneth Gary Noton Dec 18, 1960 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; June 27, 1995

Months have grown day by day, Thoughts are full and hearts do weigh, Without him here to share the way. Time may dull the hands of fate, Memory forever recalls the date. Gone are the days we used to share, But in our hearts you are always there, The gates of memory will never close We miss you more than anyone knows With tender love and deep regret. We who love you will never forget. With love, Mom

Campbell Riverite serving mission in Salt Lake City Campbell Riverite Robbie Taylor recently headed off to Salt Lake City to serve a volunteer mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Taylor was born and raised in Campbell River, graduating from Timberline, and also recently from North Island College, with an Associate Degree of Arts.

Salt Lake City is interesting to Taylor in that it is the headquarters of his religion, and has historical significance. The first LDS pioneers arrived in 1847, under the direction of prophet Brigham Young, and began to establish the city, which has since grown to a metropolitan population of over one million.

Taylor is looking forward to learning about other cultures – both by seeing the differences between Canadian and American cultures, and through the possibility of interacting with the immigrant and refugee populations which have settled in the area. “I think this will help me to grow,” he said. While in the area, he will be busy with reli-

gious teaching and service work. He is looking forward to being among a large group of the same faith, but at the same time, said he would miss being around people he knows. He credits his family and friends with getting him to this point in his life. Taylor starts his mission with three weeks at the Mission-

ary Training Centre in Provo Utah, and will head up to Salt Lake City the end of July. He will be away for two years. He is joining two local residents who are already in the area: Emily Turner, from Quadra Island, is serving a full time mission at Salt Lake City Temple Square, where she volunteers as a

Through everyone’s caring and sharing, Elias was able to have a successful kidney transplant. His aunt, Myrel Awad took this photo of herself with the now healthy and thriving Elias and his grateful mother. They say thankyou from the bottom of their hearts to all of the people who contributed to this miracle.

Bantam Ravens are Island champions

KRISTEN DOUGLAS/THE MIRROR

Sprawling save The Saanich Tigers goaltender stretches out to make the save during the Campbell River Jr. B Ravens’ last home game of the season last Sunday which they lost 6-5. The Ravens wrapped up their season on Wednesday in Nanaimo and lost that game by a score of 9-4. The Ravens finished the season in fifth spot out of six teams in the Pacific North West Junior Lacrosse League.

The Bantam C Ravens lacrosse team are Vancouver Island champions. The Windsor Plywood Ravens were in Duncan at “The Big Hockey Stick” to play the Peninsula Warriors in a winner take all last weekend, and take it all they did. The Ravens and Warriors went head-tohead in a best-of-three series for the Vancouver Island Bantam C championship. The Ravens were coming off a tie and a loss against VictoriaEsquimalt two weeks earlier. Head coach Todd Fair worked with assistant coaches Jeff Lontayao, Ken Doney and Steve Rickman to put together a series of practice plans to help the team get-back-tothe-basics. The Ravens then confirmed why the expression “how you practice is how you play” is a sporting axiom. Game one started with a bit of nerves on both sides as some passes sailed high above awaiting baskets due to extra adrenaline. While in the attacking zone, the drills from practice started to manifest themselves in the

Ravens’ play. Liam Rivett set a pick that allowed Cole Gent to put a bounce shot on net that the Warriors goalie never saw for the first goal of the game. Nolan Morrison was a force to be reckoned with at both ends of the floor as usual. He was controlling the attack and took a stick to the helmet before rubbing the defender off on a pick. With a free lane, Morrison wired a shot on net to give the Ravens a 2-0 lead. Just before the end of the first, the Warriors placed a shot just inside the post that went by goalie Will McLean to bring the score to 2-1. The second period began with intense pressure from both teams on the ball. The Warriors had a player in the penalty box as the Ravens ran a picture perfect power play. The ball moved from side-to-side and then back to the player cutting through the high slot. Morrison ensured the efforts were not wasted as he put the biscuit in the basket. The referees were colour blind and kept their calls consistent throughout the Continued on A31

Ravens lacrosse team earns provincial birth Continued from A30 close to complete the scoring. Ravens won game one by a score of 8-4. Later that same day, in game two, the nerves were long gone as the Ravens picked up where they left off at the end of the first game. Andy Hunt fired a perfect pass to Ross Rickman who relayed the ball to Doney. Doney used a screen to get his stick free and launched a howitzer on net that put the Ravens in the lead 1-0. Later, Max Nelson saw Ian Hall cutting through the house and gave him the ball. Hall stepped into his shot to overpower the Warriors goalie for the Ravens second goal. Gent was the beneficiary of a Nick Kool pass and he also made no mistake, putting the Ravens up 3-0. The Warriors were able to take advantage of a turnover to score. That seemed to get the Ravens’ attention and they got back to basics.

game. While shorthanded, Nolan Fair received a breakaway pass from Zachary Lontayao and ran it up the floor. He made a couple of moves before burying the ball for a 4-1 lead to end the second period. Teams traded goals at the start of the third with Morrison scoring for the Ravens. The Warriors kept their attack coming and scored again to make it 5-3. Fair then intercepted a pass while forechecking the Warriors break-out and wired a shot for a 6-3 lead. Reilly Doney was the beneficiary of a pass from Morrison and took full advantage of his opportunity to extend the Ravens’ lead to 7-3. Fair was on the receiving end of a Morrison pass and converted for the Ravens’ eighth goal. The Warriors scored on a bit of a dunk goal from in

Rivett found Lontayao open at the side of the net and Lontayao put it into the onion bag before the goalie knew what happened to give the Ravens a 4-1 lead after one period. The hard work in practice and large roster was helping the Ravens during the heat of these games. Lontayao scored off of a rebound at the start of the second period. After withstanding a War riors sustained attack, Justin Kennelly ran down a loose ball, sprinting from one end of the arena to the other. His efforts were well-rewarded as he grabbed the ball, got the goalie moving and buried the ball into the back of the net. On a power-play, Hall cut through the house, received the ball from Morrison and scored to give the Ravens a 7-1 lead. Hall returned the favour by putting pressure on the ball

as the Warriors were bringing it up the floor. He forced a turnover which Lontayao recovered. Lontayao saw Morrison breaking and got him the ball which put another Ravens goal up on the board as Morrison made no mistake. The Warriors tried to push back with a breakaway of their own off of a loose ball and brought the score to 8-2. While shorthanded, Rivett sprang Morrison who spotted Fair streaking down the other side. Fair scored to make it 9-2 at the end of the second. The third period saw the Warriors trying to float a player at mid-floor to try to generate breakaways but they were stymied by McLean. Morrison scored two additional power-play goals for a final score of 11-2 which gave the Ravens a series win, two games to none. Kodie Borton, Connor Ludvigson, Jasper

Hoping to build on last year’s success the team will play a full summer schedule of over 30 games that will see them to the Zone play-downs in late-July in Victoria and the Provincial play-downs in Cloverdale from Aug 2- Aug 5. Joining the Campbell River Tyees in the Mosquito AAA Tier 1 Division are; Nanaimo, Duncan and Victoria.

Tyee Cole Devlin steps up to the plate. Kicking of f play against division rivals Victoria the Tyees

travelled to Victoria earning a split 5-4 and 9-11 on June 17. Play

continued on the road the next weekend with a trip to Nanaimo on June 24, which saw the Tyees collect a pair of two wins 13-6 and 14-7 over the Nanaimo Pirates. After a Canada Day weekend tournament on the Lower Mainland, the Tyees returned to league action on July 7, travelling to Chamainus, where they beat Ladysmith AA and Duncan AAA by scores of 15-11 and 11-9 respectively. Following these wins the Tyees returned home to Campbell River at

Nunns Creek Park to face the Nanaimo Pirates in a doubleheader. In game one the Tyees jumped out to an early lead, while Nanaimo worked to get back into the game, the Tyees kept putting runs on the board and won game one 15-6. Game two saw both teams have quiet starts, but then the Tyee bats came alive and the game was capped by a Hall threerun home run far over the right field fence as game two ended with a 13-2 Tyee Victory. The Tyee gloves kept up

with their bats making numerous defensive plays that kept the Nanaimo offence quiet. This weekend the Tyees travel to Comox for games versus Duncan AAA and Comox AA followed by a pair of double-headers in Campbell River at Nunns Creek on July 21 and 22 vs Victoria AAA and Duncan AAA. These will be the last home games of the year as the Tyees then move onto Zone and Provincial playdowns. Come out and support your Mosquito AAA Tyees.
