hen Chief Robert Sam walked into a room, everyone knew it was time to get down to business. “As soon as we saw him drive into the parking lot, someone would shout, ‘Chief’s coming!’ And we’d all scatter to our offices and make sure we were busy,” said Jackie Albany, director of operations for the Songhees Nation. Albany knew Sam as a great mentor and seasoned political negotiator, a man who drafted his own letters and never minced his words. “In negotiations, he just said what the Songhees community needed and that was it, there was no negotiating,” said Albany, who worked closely with Sam for more than two decades. Sam, 76, died on Monday morning at Victoria General Hospital after complications following a stroke. Among his many accomplishments was being the driving force behind federal government negotiations that advanced the Songhees to stage 4 of a complicated treaty process. He was also a founding member of the First Nations Finance Authority, a member of the Association of First Nation Chiefs Committee on Treaties and a board member of the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority.

He developed bylaws for his community on property tax, fire protection services and negotiated an education agreement with the Greater Victoria School Board.

Funky Fernwood attracts Big Apple media spotlight Roszan Holmen News staff

Victorians think of it as their own local funky ’hood, but Fernwood has hit the world stage. A photo montage and writeup of the community was featured in the New York Times’ travel section, released Sunday. Fernwood “has been the best place to explore the city’s blossoming alternative culture,” wrote freelance writer Erica Gies, based in San Francisco. “It intrigued me because it is different from the perception I’d had previously of Victoria as a bit more conservative and traditional,” she wrote in an email to the News. Included in the web version, but not the hard copy, is a picture of Fernwood’s famous bubbleman, Terry Wilson. “I ran around and bought about the last copy in Victoria,” he said. “Bolen Books was sold out after about an hour and a half.” He gifted his copy to the owner of Stage Small Plates Wine Bar on Gladstone Avenue, which is also featured. But not before he made 30 coloured photocopies. “I’ve been taking them around the neighbourhood,” he said. Wilson got a kick out the whole experience. “I just love that they think we’re a quaint hippy outpost.” Check it out at www.nytimes.com and search under ‘Travel.’ rholmen@vicnews.com

KidSport Victoria benefits from Whitfield Olympic party Travis Paterson News staff

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Row, row, row your ERG University of Victoria rower Alex Walker works out on an ERG machine recently on the dock at the Gorge Rowing and Paddling Centre in the Selkirk area.

VicPD seek specific boarder Witness reports, media coverage help ID suspect Victoria police know who they’re looking for, after a skateboarder sent two tourists to hospital last week. Last Tuesday around 2:30 p.m., a 57-year-old Coquitlam woman and her husband were knocked to the ground by an errant skateboarder, on the sidewalk near the intersection of Government and View

streets. The visitors suffered injuries and were treated at hospital, police said. After numerous tips and media attention, VicPD identified a 20-year-old Saanich man as the suspect in the collision and are looking to serve him with violation tickets for illegally boarding downtown. Investigation continues into whether to pursue criminal charges. Any witnesses who can identify the man are asked to contact Const. Rob Horne at 250-995-7654 ext. 5917. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

If it seems like Simon Whitfield is having too much fun, he probably is. The 37-year-old was the centre of attention on Monday night as a small idea turned into a gathering of hundreds for an Olympic sendoff for the veteran triathlete. Three Point Motors hosted the group ride, dinner and auction, which included three Victoria police motorcycle officers, who escorted the throng of spandexclad riders on an hour-long tour around Victoria and along the waterfront. “The (cops) were talking to me, the cyclists were talking to me, I just love being around this community of people,” Whitfield said. The idea for the event was Whitfield’s, to use the excitement of the Olympics to throw an auction and raise money for KidSport. “(Whitfield) contacted us about 10 days ago, saying ‘Hey why don’t I do something for KidSport?’ It was short notice, but look at the response,” said KidSport board member Steve Turner. “We had $2,000 in donations just from the group ride, the auction hadn’t even started.” In the KidSport world, $2,000 will help nearly seven kids register for a season of sport, as each grant is $300. The remainder of the donations were still trickling in on Wednesday morning, but were estimated to be at least $3,500. Speaking of the task at hand, Whitfield said he’s not too nervous on the eve of his third Olympic Games. “I have two kids, that’s what makes me nervous now.” If anything, the distraction is a

(Whitfield) just needs to continue doing what he’s doing and not think about what he has to do for as long as he can.” “The way I see it,” Whitfield said, “on Aug. 8 (the day after the race) I’ll be in a park playing with my kids, whether or not I have a shiny object around my neck.” Whitfield also tipped his hat

towards his post-Olympic career, suggesting that he'll enter longer distance triathlons as early as this summer. sports@vicnews.com

Mayors urge CRD to fund ‘Salish Express’ Daniel Palmer News staff

Eight mayors are appealing to the Capital Regional District to provide $70,000 to complete an implementation plan for a commuter train between Victoria-Langford and

Esquimalt-Cowichan. The mayors of Esquimalt, Langford, View Royal, Colwood, Metchosin, Sooke, Sidney and Highlands submitted a joint letter to the CRD on Wednesday, which states the 'Salish Express' could be operational as early as September 2013.

“It is a time sensitive plan that will detail the operating and capital costs for a two-year pilot service, Monday to Friday commuter train,” the letter states. Vancity Credit Union will fund onethird of the total cost of the plan, which is estimated at $98,800.

Esquimalt concerned over cost of police recommendations Councillor Hundleby left ‘disillusioned’ after previous review brought little change Daniel Palmer News staff

Esquimalt councillors will spend the summer mulling over how to best proceed in the ongoing dispute to stick with Victoria police services, after residents weighed in on the township’s consideration of legal action against the province. A special council meeting was held Monday night to allow public input into a mediator’s report on the matter released last month. Its findings, accepted by

the Ministry of Justice, went against Esquimalt’s own police advisory panel recommendation that the municipality switch to RCMP services as a costsaving measure. Only Victoria pays more per resident for police services in the Capital Regional District. The most contentious issue is identifying who will pay to implement the report’s 43 recommendations and ultimately, how a lack of compliance, either by Victoria or Esquimalt, would be enforced.

“There’s no hammer, nothing to force anybody to do anything,” said Coun. Lynda Hundleby. She said she was disillusioned after a 2010 audit of the Victoria Police Board failed to improve the working relationship between the two municipalities on the topic. “The audit addressed our concerns, but nothing was done about it; it was dismissed. I get the feeling that we’ve been dismissed all along,” Hundleby said. The township spent an

estimated $300,000 compiling its rejected report, leaving councillors hesitant to take expensive legal action against the province. Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins said the mediator’s report contains several recommendations that would be expensive to implement, such as a CRD working group, intended to help create cost-sharing measures on regional policing concerns. “VicPD have tried valiantly to create discussion for a more regionalized

Seniors should be mindful to keep their cool this week as Environment Canada predicts temperatures hitting highs of 27 C this weekend in Victoria. For active seniors it may mean getting out in the garden, but do it safely, says the Vancouver Island Health Authority. “It’s nice that we have this problem, that we’re finally getting some summer weather. That will benefit people psychologically,” said Richard Stanwick, chief medical health officer for VIHA. “Get out there and enjoy the weather but take the right precautions.” Use sunscreen as always, and if you’re heading out to the ■ Signs of heatstroke: garden, don’t do it – Hot, red, dry skin between 10 a.m. – Rapid pulse and 3 p.m. – Rapid, shallow “As you get breathing older, you actually – Headache have smaller water – Confusion, odd reserves on board,” behaviour Stanwick said. “Even – Possible loss of if you’re physically consciousness active and fit you – High body temperature just don’t have the up to 41 C reserves you used to. … Make sure you have a water bottle, and use it.” Stay away from caffeine or alcohol that stimulate the kidneys to get rid of excess water.

So take the precautions and take note if your urine output drops. “If you don’t have air conditioning or a cooling fan in your apartment or your suite, this may be a good time to visit the mall,” he said. Seniors are also more prone to falls as the temperature rises. “If you get up quickly in hot weather your likelihood of passing out goes up,” Stanwick said. “If it’s hot, take it slow.” cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

Lawsuits claim Cadboro Bay Songhees, Esquimalt assert Douglas treaty guaranteed land Edward Hill News staff

Cadboro Bay, a quaint seaside village known for its treed neighbourhoods and giant sea monsters at Gyro Park, has become the centre of a 160-year-old dispute between area First Nations and senior governments. Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations have now filed two separate civil lawsuits against B.C. and Canada, both which seek compensation for the loss of aboriginal village land at Cadboro Bay, which the bands argue is protected forever under one of six Douglas treaties. The Esquimalt Nation statement of claim, filed in April, says that in 1850, Fort Victoria governor James Douglas entered into treaties with existing tribal groups, which effectively ceded much of Greater Victoria to the British Crown, “except for village sites and enclosed fields.” “We know there was a village there (at Cadboro Bay),” said Steven Kelliher, lawyer for the Esquimalt Nation. “It will be for the experts to assess the parameters of that village.” Indeed, the civil trial may come down to a battle of expert historians and archeologists interpreting the fine details of colonial records, and divining the intentions of colonial authorities and aboriginal leaders. Kelliher said his researchers are combing through Hudson’s Bay Company and provincial archives for colonial maps, documents, drawings and personal letters to reconstruct the timeline and details of the Cadboro

The fourth annual Taste: Victoria’s Festival of Food and Wine gets underway next Thursday (July 19) and runs through Sunday. Aside from the primary food tasting aspect of the event, the festival includes seminars on sustainable seafood, tea and chocolate pairings, as well as cider tasting and a Pinot Noir challenge. All events happen at the Crystal Garden, 713 Douglas St. Tickets are $79 plus tax. Visit victoriataste.com to purchase tickets for individual sessions or combinations.

Acupuncturists unite to promote connections Registered acupuncturist Xiole Mitchell and fellow Victoria-area practitioners are combining for the first ever Vancouver Island Acupuncture Day, this Sunday (July

15) in Market Square. The idea is to not only open up their practice of this traditional Chinese healing art to the public, but to try and strengthen ties with other professionals in the community, Mitchell says. The event, which includes free treatments, runs from 1 to 4 p.m. and includes talks on traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture.

Victoria police service older than the city The City of Victoria may be celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. But its police department has been around even longer. VicPD marked its 154th anniversary on Sunday, having been through more than a few changes since July 8, 1858, when it took over policing duties from the Royal Navy and the militia-style Victoria Voltiguers. At the time, the Victoria police jurisdiction included all of Vancouver Island and several surrounding Gulf islands. rholmen@vicnews.com

Construction leaders rebuilding nature house Refurbishing project part of Gorge education

The group chose this project from many proposals because the centre’s education programs reach so many people, said Chris Lyons, project manager with Farmer Construction. The renovation will also call for a range of skills. “The scope of this project involves a large number of the trades, so if we’re going to do things through donations and time, you can involve the majority of your association,” Lyons said. Several members of the Young Construction Leaders got a tour of their future project recently – and an education about the Gorge. As they gathered around a 3-D interactive watershed model of the Gorge, Joachim Carolsfeld pointed out eel grass beds that serve as the nursery for fish, and the various freshwater creeks that feed the ocean inlet. Carolsfeld is executive director of the World Fisheries Trust, which opened the centre in 2008 with the help of the Township. The model, mounted on a

Built to be a concession stand, the small building in Esquimalt Gorge Park is doing an adequate job serving as the Gorge Waterway Nature Centre. But it could be so much more. The goal is to make it into the kind of facility where people will want to come and learn, said Todd Carnahan of the Habitat Acquisition Trust. The Vancouver Island Construction Association is stepping up to do just that, to mark not only its own centennial year, but that of the Township of Esquimalt.

table, takes up a big chunk of the available room in the facility. “Our main challenge is a lack of space,” Carolsfeld said. The nature house was originally built as a concession and washroom for beachgoers in the 1950s. At that time, the mouth of the creek winding through Esquimalt Gorge Park was transformed into a swimming pool by dredging the sediment and chlorinating the water. “(The goal is to make this building) a more attractive place for our community, so that they can come and learn about … the eel grass and the coho salmon and the ability to swim here,” Carnahan said. “I was thinking a gingerbread house, but you might have other ideas,” he joked to the industry leaders. People must learn about the Gorge to value it, he said. “If they don’t value it, we’ll never protect this place. It will become a cesspool again.” rholmen@vicnews.com

Focus on the Gorge The new nature house is just one of many restoration and education projects focused on the Gorge. The Habitat Acquisition Trust is working with landowners upstream from Craigflower Creek to ensure nutrients and other pollutants don’t enter the watershed. Another project, led by the World Fisheries Trust, is called Voices of the Gorge. It’s about collecting stories from old folks, said executive director Joachim Carolsfeld. “We’re not sure what kind of presentation it will be, whether video, print, posters, a book.”

OUR VIEW

Treaties should have day in court Songhees Nation’s elected leader Chief Robert Sam passed away earlier this week as a man who fought tirelessly for his community in Victoria and for aboriginal people across the province. Sam worked hard to give aboriginal youth the opportunity for a good education and good jobs, understanding both are necessary to break the systemic cycle of poverty with First Nations people. As forward thinking as Sam was, he still was fighting injustices of the long past. In tandem with Esquimalt First Nation, Sam played a crucial role in establishing a $31 million settlement in 2006 from the provincial and federal governments, for land taken away 160 years ago, where the Legislature building now sits. The settlement, while giving the bands much needed capital, it did little to answer the nagging question of the validity, scope and meaning of the Douglas treaties. In 1850, Fort Victoria colonial governor James Douglas made a series of land purchases from a number of tribes, for a pittance, giving the Crown ownership of almost all land in Victoria and Saanich, except aboriginal “village sites and enclosed fields for our own use ... and those who follow after us,” according to treaty text. Aboriginal people also had the right to continue to fish and hunt on unoccupied land. First Nations people in Victoria, and probably more than a few historians as well, argue the colonial administration broke the terms of these Douglas treaties fairly quickly – aboriginal village surveys weren’t done and land that was supposed to be set aside was absorbed by the colony. Next May, the Songhees and Esquimalt bands are set to refight this question in court, regarding a village site in Cadboro Bay. Despite an era of reconciliation and new relationships with aboriginal people, the senior governments haven’t pulled their punches in response. The federal government questions if the Songhees are the rightful descendants of the Chekonein people who lived in Cadboro Bay (the B.C. Ministry of Aboriginal Relations admits they are on its website). Both governments assert there is a statute of limitations on the agreements and that “village sites” really only meant a village site – the Songhees Indian Reserve. Fighting a 160-year-old grievance in court may seem absurd and may come down to duelling experts interpreting an imperfect historical record. At the same time, it would be better if this case isn’t settled out of court. The validity of the Douglas treaties should have a full public airing. What do you think?

Ferrell looks funny, Galifianakis looks his usual awkward, effeminate character that we’re supposed to laugh at, which makes me uncomfortable. But it still looks like some light summer laughs. Plus Ferrell punches a baby. Can’t go wrong. The Avengers may be the big money winner so far this year, but if anything can take it down it will be Christopher Nolan’s wrap up of his Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, opening July 20. This movie is an event and as much as I’d like to sound cool and pretend I don’t care about it, I’m flipping excited. The Dark Knight blew everyone away and made gobs of money, so (despite the unimpressive title) The Dark Knight Rises will likely follow suit. Love it or hate it, the summer movie season is what keeps Hollywood chugging along and, despite the duds (Dark Shadows), this year has been above average so far. So seriously, when you need to beat the heat, dive into your local theatre for some pure escapism. It can be very refreshing.

Water watchers Two people sitting on the breakwater near Fleming Beach in Esquimalt check out a fishing rodequipped pleasure craft, as it heads out toward the open water on a sunny afternoon Tuesday. Don Denton/News staff

OPINION Research shutdown part of government’s enviro-gutting We can’t live without clean many other issues. water. That’s about to end. The Canada is blessed with an federal government announced it abundance of lakes will close the unique and rivers and has a facility in 2013. It’s global responsibility an odd decision, to manage them well. especially considering But if we really want that it costs just to protect freshwater $2-million a year to supplies and the operate – one-tenth ecosystems they the cost of Prime support, we must Minister Stephen understand how human Harper’s security activity and natural detail and about the disturbances affect same amount the David Suzuki them. government spent The world-renowned with Ian Hanington during the 2010 G20 Experimental Lakes Summit in Toronto to Area (ELA) in northwestern build a tourism pavilion with a Ontario has served as an outdoor fake lake. To make matters worse, laboratory for this purpose it will cost taxpayers $50 million since 1968. By manipulating and to shut the ELA down. studying conditions in 58 small In an open letter to lakes and their watersheds, government, senior scientists scientists there have made many point out that “research discoveries about the effects of conducted at the ELA has been human and natural activity on instrumental in the development freshwater ecosystems and fish. of environmental policy and Over the past 45 years they’ve legislation both nationally and taught us about the impacts of internationally.” acid rain, mercury pollution, They also note that “ELA nanoparticles, nitrogen overload, scientists have been recipients climate change, fish farming, and of numerous prestigious national

and international awards, and the scientific output from ELA has been impressive – more than 1,000 scientific articles, graduate theses and books.” We often hear how Canada “manages” its natural resources, but how can we do that without sound knowledge about the intricacies of the water cycle? The timing is also odd. The ELA is being shut down as the government eviscerates laws and regulations designed to protect freshwater and marine habitat and resources with its omnibus budget bill. Included in the bill are changes or cuts to the Fisheries Act, Navigable Waters Protection Act, Species at Risk Act, and Canadian Environmental Protection Act, and a complete gutting and rewriting of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. Changes to the Fisheries Act are especially troubling. Habitat protection has been removed, and the focus has shifted to economically viable and aboriginal fisheries only. That has some former fisheries ministers worried.

In a letter to the prime minister, Conservatives Tom Siddon and John Fraser and Liberals 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. Postmedia 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 marine-planning 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 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’s-length 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. www.davidsuzuki.org.

Readers respond: Gays in military, light rail, doctor shortage Reader proud about openly gay military What a great Pride Week it was in Victoria. Every year I find something more to be proud of. My very good friend, Kent, an openly gay man who has served with the Canadian Armed Forces for more than 25 years, left in late June (missing Pride) to serve in Kabul, Afghanistan for one year. Not that many years ago, a gay man would not be openly serving in the forces. Now they join arms with all shapes and shades of Canadians, helping countries find peace within and with their neighbours.

I know that many in the community, including myself, hold such pride for you and other GLBTs (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual) serving us in the Canadian Armed Forces. Come back safe... Everyone. Colin Craig Saanich

Start paying now for light-rail system Re: Light-rail funding choice awaits governance deal (News, July 4) I don’t very often find myself taking opposite positions from my mayor, Frank Leonard, but on

this issue I am. He is totally wrong about only taxing future users of the proposed light-rail transit system. This kind of thinking is one of the reasons why we are in the situation we are in today. We have failing infrastructure everywhere and our empty bank account prevents us from maintaining and/or overhauling it as needed, rather than when we have the cash. This is an investment in our community and we should start to save for it today. It will be expensive, for sure, and we will be in a better position going

forward if we have the largest down payment possible to get it going. Paul MacDonald Saanich

Nurse practitioners provide quality care Re: Calling all doctors (News, June 29) I read with interest your piece on the apparent shortage of physicians to provide primary health care in Greater Victoria. Indeed, we need more primary care providers, and physicians are not the only ones who can fill that role. Nurse practitioners (NPs) have proven over 40-plus

years that: 1) their patient outcomes are at least as good as that of physicians, 2) patients are better able to manage their chronic illness and 3) patients like care provided by NPs. The best primary health care is provided by teams

of equals, each contributing their special knowledge and skills to promote the health of all our patients. Rita Schreiber Nurse Practitioner Program co-ordinator, University of Victoria School of Nursing

Chief leaves First Nations economic legacy Roszan Holmen

In the months before his death, Songhees Chief Robert Sam was working for a better future for his nation’s young people. He and Chief Andy Thomas of the Esquimalt First Nation had formed a joint company with Ralmax Group of Companies and Ruskin Construction. The new marine business, named Salish Sea Industrial Services Ltd. in May, provides training and employment opportunities for members of the two First Nations, including a contract to dismantle the old Johnson Street rail bridge. The company employs nine people, six of whom are First Nations. Its barge prominently displays the logos of both First Nations. In an interview last winter, Sam called the partnership a significant opportunity for young people, as well as a way to build awareness of the Songhees people. “It creates for us a presence

on the harbour and the downtown core area,” he said. “I’ve heard from people, ‘Oh, we thought you guys were gone.’ Ha!” he laughed. “No, we’re still here.” The venture with Ralmax was not the first Sam negotiated with the private sector. The first phase of construction on the Dockside Green development gave apprenticeship opportunities to some Songhees members. Sam signed a similar work agreement with the Victoria International Marina, which still awaits approval from the federal government. “It’s groundbreaking in terms of the business community accepting us and see-

ing us as partners,” he said in November 2011. “Previously, when something started, we were always on the outside.” The unemployment rate was a concern for Sam, who said the average education level on reserve is between Grade 8 and 10. Agreements with the private sector, he said, “are a good opportunity to get some training for our young people, get them some job skills and get them out into the work force.” However, he added, more needs to be done to ensure follow-up training is available to young people after they complete workplace apprenticeships. “We should have

had a follow up,” he said. “We have to do it.” Ian Maxwell of Ralmax has been working toward an agreement with the two First Nations for the past several years. “We are deeply saddened by the loss of Chief Robert Sam,” he wrote in a statement to the News. “We at Ralmax have long been advocates for the meaningful inclusion of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations in the working harbour economies. I’m proud to have been Chief Robert Sam’s business partner. Our prayers and sympathy go out to everyone.” Salish Sea Industrial Services acts as a labour pool, where unskilled workers can train as labourers. They can also be seconded to other companies within the Ralmax Group, where they will receive further training in specialized skills such as hazardous material abatement, or apprenticeships in fields such as welding and metal fabrication. rholmen@vicnews.com

“We beat Bob hands down and he quipped at the end of the day, ‘Next time I’m going to bring men with me, as opposed to boys.’” During Lowe’s term, Sam and Esquimalt Chief Andy Thomas started to attend all the major city events. “He definitely wanted to tell the world that the Songhees Nation was alive and well,” Lowe said. “(His death) is a huge loss to the Songhees First Nation.” NDP leader Adrian Dix and EsquimaltRoyal Roads MLA Maurine Karagianis chose to remember Sam in his own words from 2006: “The strength and wisdom of our past leaders have served to get us to where we are today. The vision and commitment of our people will help us achieve our goals for tomorrow.” Albany said she is working closely with Sam’s “huge family” to arrange a memorial service for Sunday, July 15 at the Songhees Nation Longhouse. – with files from Roszan Holmen dpalmer@vicnews.com

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

Taxi drivers in the Capital Region are hoping for better protection when asking for upfront payments from customers. Pending approval from the Ministry of Transportation, all Greater Victoria cabs will be required to display the Taxi Bill of Rights in their vehicles as of Oct. 1, something Metro Vancouver cabs have been doing for the past four years. The bill clearly states the rights of drivers and passengers and helps drivers avoid being questioned when refusing service. “Right now, if a passenger says, ‘I’m not paying you unless you show me the law,’ we can’t do much about it,” said Kuldeep Singh, Greater Victoria Taxi Association president. The Taxi Bill of Rights allows drivers to point out specific regulations to irate passengers, he said. “Usually, it’s at nighttime when people are a BEST PRICE | BEST QUALITY | BEST SERVICE little bit drunk and want to go somewhere (when they) don’t have the money,” said Blue Bird cab driver Rakesh Kohli. “Daytime incidents are 10'x10' Kitchen really rare, but it does $ Starting at happen.” Under current provincial regulations, drivers have the option of requesting a deposit $ sq.ft Starting at from passengers.

The Esquimalt Centennial Golf Tournament treated participants to a 100-year time warp, thanks to the efforts of the B.C. Golf Museum. Golf enthusiasts used vintage hickory clubs and mesh golf balls to tee off for a skills competition at the Gorge Vale Golf Club. “I didn’t see anybody hit a great shot, but it was a lot of fun,” said Ritchie Morrison, communications coordinator for the Township of Esquimalt. “In previous years, Parks and Rec had put on the tournament to raise money for the their initiatives.

The case against a former Catholic priest accused of sexually abusing minors in Saanich heads to a voir dire phase of court proceedings this month. Philip Jacobs served as a parish priest at St. Joseph the Worker on Burnside Road West from 1998 to 2002. A pretrial conference in Victoria Supreme Court set a date for the voir dire â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a hearing to examine evidence or witness competency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for July 23. In July 2010, Jacobs was charged with sexual assault, two counts of sexual interference of a person under 14 and touching a young person for a Philip Jacobs sexual purpose. The charges involve three minors under 14, with alleged incidents spanning September 1996 to June 2001, all within Saanich. He was arrested Aug. 4, 2010 and released on $25,000 bail. Jacobs worked part-time from 1996 to 1998 at St. Rose of Lima in Sooke before taking the position of parish priest at St. Joseph the Worker. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria hired Jacobs despite knowing he had been relieved of his duties at a church in Columbus, Ohio, in the early 1990s after admitting to inappropriately touching a teenage boy in the 1980s. In a 2002 press release regarding hiring Jacobs, the diocese had deemed he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;not a pedophile nor an abuser and he was no threat in the future." After he was arrested in 2010, the diocese noted that it had tightened its hiring practices in 2005. Saanich police said Jacobs was investigated as early as 2002 on allegations of abuse, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough evidence to recommend charges. -with files from Kyle Slavin editor@vicnews.com

Streets will fill with flash ceilidhs during CeltFest Sounds of pipes and stomp of feet will fill Victoria with Celtic feel Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Don’t be surprised to suddenly see flash ceilidhs on the streets next week in Oak Bay. A bit of the Celt will show up in surprise performances, though they’ll likely show up around noon and before dinnertime. “We did this in Nanaimo with some success last year,” said Carolyn Phillips Cusson, producer of CeltFest. Now in its 12th year, CeltFest comes to Victoria for the first time July 14 to 20. It will bring performing artists from around the world in a series of Celtic concerts, workshops and ceilidhs or Celtic jam sessions at the Canadian College of Performing Arts, 1701 Elgin Rd. in Oak Bay. “They’re going to be roving type ceilidhs,” Cusson said, unwavering from the secrecy of what or who might do flash mob-style performances and where. “The whole idea of having the ceilidhs in the community is to get people interacting.” The CeltFest concert series kicks off July 16, with Lori and Innes Watson: Scots Kith & Kin.

Join students and faculty from CeltFest’s Sum-

In a gala finish, Celtic cultures merge in the festival’s finale, the Sunset and Stars gala, Thursday, July 19, with champion fiddlers, dancers, pipers, and drummers, including Juno Award nominee Eileen McGann and master pipers Rene Cusson and Jamie Troy as well as headliner The Niamh Ní Charra Trio from Ireland. “I was born in Victoria, the bulk of my piping over the years has been in Victoria,” said champion piper and co-producer Rene Cusson. “I’ve had a strong association. I was part of the original City of Victoria Pipe Band … It was very innovative. It was one of the world’s top pipe bands. “Some of those fellows including Jamie Troy Jr. and Colin Magee are still on the (Greater) Victoria Police Pipe Band. It’s fun to get together with them and we’ll put on a good show together,” he added. “You sort of hit the ground running at festivals … you get this fusion and I think that’s one of the things that makes a festival a unique musical event. They haven’t worked the music to death.” All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Canadian College of Performing Arts auditorium and the audience is invited to remain after each concert to participate in the ceilidh. Ticket prices range from $10 to $34. Visit CeltFest.ca for full schedule and ticket prices. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

ROAD TO LONDON A celebrat ion of ou r Olympic at h let es

Edward Hill/News staff

Blake Worsley has high hopes for his first-ever Olympics, which begin in London, England on July 27.

Victoria swimmer keeps his eye on the prize Edward Hill New staff

B

lake Worsley is no stranger to the intense pressure of international competition as a freestyle swimmer for Canada. But facing his first Olympics in less than a month, the 24-year-old tries to shake off nerves. Competing in the Games is a goal he dreamt about as a kid, and these days, he’s never felt fitter or faster. It helps that the handful of Canadian national swimmers based out of Victoria had their main training camp at an aquatics centre in Maui, Hawaii, under the tropical sun in an outdoor 50-metre pool. As a Canadian national team member since 2009 and an outstanding U.S. collegiate swimmer before that, Worsley lives an unending schedule of competition and training. Prepping for the Olympics is the same, but different, he says – there is

an acute awareness the pool in London is for the best of the best. “It’s the same principle. You train for a month and taper down for the last month going into a meet,” Worsley says on the phone from Hawaii. “But with the Olympics everything gets harder. They expect you to do well, to do more, to get more out of you for the Olympics.” Worsley’s training regime involves three to five hours in the pool each day, plus weight training and running. At his peak he’ll consume 8,000 calories per day to keep the engine revving. At 6’6 and 210 lbs., Worsley’s size and lean build make him a natural for slicing through the water at high speed. In London he’ll compete in the 800-metre relay and hopefully the 200-metre freestyle, one of his strongest disciplines. Worsley was born and spent part of his youth in Vancouver, playing baseball and hockey, encouraged by his dad. At about

age eight, one fateful day at the North Shore Winter Club, his mom asked him to jump in the pool. “I was horrified. I did not want to get in the pool with those big kids,” Worsley says laughing. “But my mom told me if I get in now, she’ll take me to McDonald’s afterwards. So I went in.” His family relocated to Steamboat Springs, Colo., when he was 10. He later excelled at swimming in high school there, coached by his mom. He went on to be one of the best athletes produced by the University of Denver, where he earned a degree in business marketing. As a senior in 2009, he earned DU’s male athlete of the year and won a second straight male swimmer of the year honours in the Sun Belt Conference. After moving back to Victoria to train full time with team Canada, Worsley’s past three years have been a constant stream of competition, including world

championships, the Commonwealth Games in India and the Pan Pacific Championships. On March 27, all the training and meets came down to one shot in Montreal. To be invited to the Olympic team, Worsley had to win the 200-metre freestyle, which he did in 1:49.06. “(Montreal) wasn’t my best day, but to make it through and to get on the team, it was a good day,” he says. The last few weeks before the Olympics in July, the Canadian swim team will be at a taper camp in Sardinia, Italy, before arriving in London. “This is the first time I’m going to the Olympics. I’m pretty excited,” Worsley says. “I’m looking forward to walking out there, to competing for my country. It’s been a dream my whole life to compete in the Olympic Games. I’ll put my best foot forward and do what I can do.” editor@saanichnews.com

For a toolshed built by a gang of white-collar workers, it looks unexpectedly sturdy and cleanly designed. Its walls are lined with all manner of tools – pliers, screwdrivers, grips, extension cords, levels, rakes, shovels and hoses, and even earthquake kits. It’s a handyman’s dream and a first shot at making a community toolshed within a Capital Region Housing Corporation townhouse complex. The community toolshed was conceived and built by a six-person team within a Leadership Victoria 2012 class, modelled on a similar tool-sharing project out of Portland, Ore. In partnership with CRHC, the LifeCycles non-profit group was starting a community garden at the Cloverdale Avenue site, so a community toolshed seemed a perfect fit for 26 families in the complex and 26 seniors in an adjacent building. Over the course of the project from September to May, the Leadership Victoria team

Edward Hill/ News staff

fundraised, had tools donated and even had time and expertise donated from a contractor and building designer. The six, who are mainly managers and professionals, also put in sweat and labour. “It was an ongoing joke about six white-collar workers choosing a gritty construction project,” said Blair Spencer, a provincial probation officer who speaks for the team. “It definitely took us out of our comfort zone, but part of the program was meant to push our comfort zones.” Residents at the complex supported the project and were keen to have gardening tools available, but the uptake on borrowing has been slow. Dawn Kennedy, a resident and one of the four people who volunteered to oversee tool checkout, expectes people to start more home and garden projects as summer weather settles in. “It’s really good for the people

around here who don’t have a lot of stuff. I don’t carry a lot of tools in my house,” Kennedy said. Amy Jaarsma, a senior manager with CRHC, said community tool sheds are something they’d like to see at other housing sites. “This is the first tool shed for our properties,” Jaarsma said. “We might try it again once we get a feel for it. It would be great to try out in a different location. Other Leadership Victoria teams also completed community projects, including healthy cooking classes with youth connected to Big Brothers Big Sisters; a Stigma Stomp Day with the Bipolar Disorder Society of B.C. at Centennial Square on May 14; a program to teach youth the sources of food, how to purchase healthy food from grocery stores and how to prepare it, in collaboration with local chefs. editor@saanichnews.com

Craig Didmon is back with the Victoria Grizzlies after three seasons away. The former Grizzlies assistant coach to Geoff Courtnall in 2009 will resume that position and more as the assistant coach and assistant general manager to recently appointed head coach and GM Bill Bestwick. Didmon left after the Grizzlies hosted the 2009 RBC Cup, having lost out on getting Courtnall’s head coaching job to Victor Gervais. Three years later, a change of ownership and a few good spins on the merry-go-round that is coaching in junior hockey, and Didmon returns to the Grizzlies. Meanwhile, Gervais is not far, as he will guide the rebooted junior B Westshore Wolves, who will also play out of Bear Mountain Arena. Didmon is giving up his part-time assistant coaching gig with Victoria Royals, but will continue running the West Shore Hockey Academy for students of Spencer middle and Belmont secondary schools. “This creates an opportunity for a great partnership with the West Shore academy and the Grizz,” Didmon said. “With where the Grizzlies are at, we have a lot of work to do, and the academy has to get ready to go. But the B.C. Hockey league schedule, which is mostly weekends now, works well with the academy’s schedule.” A promotion with the Royals, if and when that ever becomes an option, would mean giving up the academy, which Didmon is happy to run. “The Royals were great, I’d love to go back down the road, probably in a higher position.” Didmon’s relationship with Bestwick goes back to Didmon’s playing days with the BCHL’s short lived Victoria Warriors. “He came to the Warriors part way through the 1990-91 season. He was the best junior coach I had.” Bestwick was the Warriors third coach that season and snuck them into playoffs and past the country’s top-seeded New Westminster Royals,

Craig Didmon is back with the Grizzlies. before losing to Powell River in the semifinals. Didmon continued to lean on Bestwick when he coached the Victoria Cougars to a provincial junior B championship in 2007, prior to joining the Grizzlies. “Bill taught me a lot, he is a great motivator, he stands behind his players and pushes them to improve. My Cougars teams were a reflection of what the Nanaimo Clippers team was like 10 years ago.”

Recruiting underway Bestwick is busy populating the team’s roster for the upcoming season. This week he signed 18-year-old Eben Norman of Vancouver, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound defenceman who played junior B with North Delta. The Grizz also brought in 20-year-old forward Bret Hartskamp from the Swan Valley Stampeders from Manitoba, a player that started his junior A career under Bestwick with the Clippers. And perhaps the biggest move so far is the multiplayer trade that sent defenceman Braxton Bilous and goalie Garrett Rockafellow to the Westside Warriors for goalie Brady Rouleau, 19, and forward Garrett Skrbich, 19. Grizzlies training camp starts on Aug. 20. sports@vicnews.com

■ 2012 MS Bike Tour Cowichan Valley Grape Escape ■ Sunday, July 8 ■ Cowichan Valley

Bike tour raises $440,000 to aid in the fight to end MS Summer arrived just in the nick of time and allowed the 430 participants of the MS Bike Tour Cowichan Valley Grape Escape to have a fabulous time. For two days participants rode anywhere from 60km -140 km through the beautiful region of the Cowichan Valley. Many wineries and artisan stops were visited and it is estimated that over $10,000 was spent in the Cowichan Valley area by our participants. “I had a super wonderful ride (although, I could have done without all those hills!) but I did it and sure glad I decided to do this ride.” This was one of many comments from participants after such a successful weekend – she continues with “I don’t even know how to express how appreciative I am for all that the MS Society and all the hardworking volunteers do. It is absolutely amazing to see how many people and companies volunteer their time, services and products to make us have a real nice weekend ride.” The MS Bike Tour Cowichan Valley Grape Escape raised over $440,000.00 for people living with MS. This is the most the event has ever raised and organizers are thrilled that this type of support comes from the participants that are involved. “There is magic that happens with this event and the people that come are so committed to find a cure and help us end MS”, says Tracey Gibson – Manager of Development. “We are so thankful to everyone involved for making this event such a huge success.” For information on the MS Bike Tour Cowichan Valley Grape Escape please visit www.cowichanvalleygrapeescape.com.

Nissan LEAF backs into the future at Goodwood hillclimb course hillclimb course at the recent Festival of Speed, covering the distance in 1m 37.02s at an average speed of 55 mph. Having set the record on Friday, the opening day of the Festival, Terry went on to smash his time on Saturday and Sunday, shaving an amazing 26 seconds off Friday’s time Terry, who set a world record at last

METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

The Nissan LEAF has set a record as the fastest car over a measured mile (1.6 km) in reverse. Driven by professional stunt driver Terry Grant, the Nissan LEAF raced backwards up the famous Goodwood

year’s festival by driving a Nissan Juke up the hill on two wheels, said “I had a great car at my disposal - with direct drive from the electric motor to its wheels, the Nissan LEAF can, in theory, go as fast backwards as it can forwards There were times I wasn’t sure I was coming or going.” However, thanks to the LEAF’s low

centre of gravity - the batteries are an integral part of the car’s floor - the car is extremely stable, no matter which direction it’s travelling. “The only complaint I have is slight neck ache from constantly looking over my shoulder!”

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) displayed the ultra-low carbon XJ_e plug-in hybrid engineering research vehicle at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed. The XJ_e demonstrates how an advanced parallel plug-in hybrid design can deliver reductions in CO2 emissions of more than 70 per cent, without compromising vehicle performance. Capable of 0-100km/h (62 mph) in less than 6.5 seconds and with a limited top speed of 250 km/h (150 mph), the XJ_e achieves CO2 emissions of less than 75g/km and a zeroemission range of 40 km (25 miles) on electric power. The innovative XJ_e project was created by JLR as part of its strategy to develop best-in-class low-carbon premium products, and follows other successful hybrid research demonstrators including the Limo Green and Range_e vehicles. The XJ_e combines the class-leading lightweight aluminum vehicle structure from the Jaguar XJ with an advanced plugin hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) system, featuring the efficient 2.0-litre turbocharged direct-injection gasoline engine which powers the Range Rover Evoque and a hybridized eight-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid system uses a 69 kW motor/ generator and a 12.8kWh Lithium Ion battery pack, which can be fully charged by an external 240V domestic supply in around four hours The battery pack can deliver an electriconly range of 40km (25 miles). The parallel hybrid design means that the XJ_e can run on gasoline power, electric power, or a combination of the two, optimized by the car’s intelligent energy management system which selects the most efficient mode.

Chevrolet Corvette roars into 60th year METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

On June 30, 1953, the first of a new kind of Chevrolet rolled off an assembly line in Flint, Mich. The car had only two seats. There were no roll-up windows, or exterior door handles, for that matter. Its body wasn’t stamped from steel but, rather, molded from reinforced fiberglass. While the postwar Baby Boom was in full swing, this was definitely not a family car. This was a very personal vehicle, one that promised a driver and a passenger all of the thrills of the open road. Skeptics gave the car little chance of lasting beyond an initial run of a few dozen units. However, 60 years later the Chevrolet Corvette survives – and thrives – as an American automotive and cultural icon. “Through the years, Corvette certainly offered state-of-the-art features, designs, technologies and performance,” said Tadge Juechter, vehicle chief engineer for Corvette. “However, I think what has made the Corvette such an enduring concept is

the exciting experience of driving one. Corvette was first created under the code-name XP-122 to provide North Americans with a glimpse of a European-style sports car designed for this side of the Atlantic. It was one of several concept cars unveiled in January, 1953 at the GM Motorama show in the ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. With a world war not far behind them, people wanting a glimpse of the automotive future lined up around the block to view the new concept vehicles. At the Waldorf Astoria – and at every other Motorama stop across the country – Chevrolet’s sporty little roadster ignited many Americans’ imaginations. In fact, the Corvette was so popular that Chevrolet executives decided to thrust the two-seat roadster into production, albeit on a very limited basis. Initial plans called for about 150 Corvettes, primarily to help draw potential customers into Chevrolet dealerships.

One of the first of a revolutionary breed, the 1953 Chevrolet Corvette.

Overwhelming demand doubled the first-year production to 300 units. The following year, the Corvette moved to a GM assembly facility in St. Louis, Mo., where 3,640 Corvettes were built for the 1954 model year. Those first Corvettes sparked North Americans’ 60-year love affair with the Corvette. Since 1953, more than 1.5 million Corvettes have been built. Those cars have become synonymous with American performance – from cruising down Americana on Route 66 to taking the checkered flag at the world’s most prestigious road race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

designed to detect and warn if the driver is tired or distracted. The final report from EuroFOT clearly shows that adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning enhance traffic safety. The benefits are greatest on the motorway, where the risk of driving into the vehicle in front is cut by up to 42 per cent. Adaptive Cruise Control is used on the motorway for more than 51 per cent of the total distance covered – which confirms that the system is appreciated by drivers. Eighty per cent of them feel that progress on the road is more comfortable and convenient, and a massive 94 per cent feel safer with the system activated. When it comes to collision warning, 70 per cent of the drivers feel that it improves the level of safety.

With two seats, five doors and wall-to-wall MINI style and personality, the MINI Clubvan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first premium compact delivery van â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has it all. With this groundbreaking model, based on the MINI Clubman platform, MINI is translating the brandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hallmark driving fun and inherent charisma to new applications aimed at the urban user. The enhanced functionality offered by the MINI Clubvan is based on a closed-off load area extending from the rear doors right up to the front seats. Cargo can be accessed through the wideopening split rear door or via the right-side Clubdoor. With its two-seater configuration, its fixed partition between the passenger compartment and load area, and its opaque, blocked-out rear side windows, the MINI Clubvan is the first commercial-oriented vehicle in the growing MINI lineup. Based on the MINI Cooper Clubman, the MINI Cooper Clubvan will also share the familiar four-cylinder 1.6-litre engine with the MINI Cooper Clubman and other Cooper stablemates. With an output of 121 hp and 115 lb/ft of torque, the Clubvan offers typical MINI attributes: crisp performance, super-agile handling and exceptional fuel economy. The MINI Clubvanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roots go

back to 1960, when the original Mini â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just one year after its launch â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was followed up by a space-efficient solution in the form of the Morris Mini Van. That van model, with a wheelbase extended by ten centimetres, a closed-off load compartment and split rear door, offered exactly the sort of extra functionality urban commercial users of the time were looking for. The MINI Clubvanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s functionally minded design has been achieved by taking out the rear seats and adding customized features. The blocked-out, opaque rear side windows are body-coloured, with an interior polycarbonate reinforcement. In combination with tinted glass in the rear doors, this keeps the load compartment well concealed from prying eyes. Inside, the flat loading floor and the side walls are trimmed in carpet, while an anthracite roof liner runs the full length of the vehicle. 12-volt sockets in the cargo area can be used to power electrical equipment. Six attachment loops recessed into the floor can be used to secure cargo. Maximum payload capacity is 500 kilograms. The new MINI Cooper Clubvan will be available as an option package as part of the MINI Clubman model lineup, available in an appealing suite of colors and extensive list of optional equipment, debuting as a 2013 model.

With two seats, five doors and wall-to-wall MINI style and personality, the MINI Clubvan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first premium compact delivery van â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is slated to join the lineup and come to Canada in late 2012.
