Police seize drugs, firearm

Kyle Wells/News staff

A fire in the 600 block of Kelly Road in Colwood early Friday morning nearly took the lives of two dogs, which were saved with help from RCMP officer Cpl. Scott Rothermel and the Colwood Fire Department. Two men now face charges for the blaze.

Officer rescues dog from burning building Cst. Scott Rothermel says firefighters who saved home ‘real heroes’ Kyle Wells News staff

Quick thinking and steady nerves helped West Shore RCMP Cst. Scott Rothermel save a dog from a burning building believed to have been set on fire deliberately. Rothermel and the Colwood Fire Department responded to the fire in the 600 block of Kelly Road shortly after 2 a.m. Friday morning.

Problem.

A man had called 911, saying only “Fire� before the call was disconnected. RCMP dispatchers traced the call and found an address on Kelly Road. Rothermel was the first to arrive at the scene and saw flames coming off a truck and the right side of the house. The vehicle was so engulfed in flames it was barely recognizable, he said, noting the fire was spreading up the side of the house. Neighbours told him there were two dogs trapped inside. Rothermel asked if there were any people still in the building and the neighbours told him that they weren’t sure. “You have about a second to decide,� said Rothermel.

Choosing the side of the house furthest away from the flames, Rothermel smashed out the remains of a window that had already been broken and entered into the living room. One of the dogs, a pit bull, came to Rothermel, who then opened the front door from the inside and shoved the dog outside. He searched the rest of the house but didn’t find any other dogs or people. The smoke began to get heavier so Rothermel left the house. “I’m not a hero, I’m just the guy that arrived first and made a decision,� Rothermel said. PLEASE SEE: Two men face possible charges, Page A5

Solution.

Almost a pound of crack cocaine was among the drugs and weapons seized by police after a man and woman were arrested as they returned to Vancouver Island after departing a B.C. Ferry. West Shore RCMP say the two were taken into custody after being pulled over by police as part of an ongoing street crimes investigation. In the car, an officer found 439 grams (15.5 ounces) of crack and 268 grams (10 ounces) of crystal methamphetamine as well as a handgun and ammunition. The man was prohibited from possessing firearms and the woman had a warrant out for her arrest related to a previous theft. The man, Ryan Andrew Fletcher, appeared in Western Communities courthouse Monday morning on two charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and one charge of possession of a firearm. “The sale and distribution of illicit street drugs dramatically impacts the safety of communities,� stated S/Sgt Danny Willis, West Shore RCMP Operations NCO, in a media release sent out Friday afternoon. “The RCMP remains committed to detecting and disrupting the drug trade and arresting those who prey on people and seek to profit from this illegal activity.� Police had the couple under surveillance stemming from early investigations. It has been a busy week for West Shore RCMP, who have made progress into cases involving the credit card scam at the Station House Pub in Langford, an internet scam and charges of sexual assualt relating to a local employer. Police will release more details on these cases later in the week, check Goldstreamgazette.com for updates. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Jailed teens share insider stories Graphic novel offers insights, warnings for young offenders Natalie North News staff

Veterans of youth detention, teens who have lived on both sides of Victoria Youth Custody Centre’s walls, are sharing their wisdom in an effort to keep other young people out of jail. Six youth in custody contributed to a graphic novel based on personal experiences – their hopes, fears and challenges as they attempt to successfully transition back into society. “We took kids who were in the system quite a bit to share their insider knowledge to other youth who are new to the system,” said project co-ordinator Kate Creedon, a counsellor at the custody centre. “The ones who are in and out are experts in what to do and what not to do because they’ve lived it for years.” Creedon was a graduate student researching youth transitioning out of custody through the University of Victoria’s Centre for Youth and Society during the creation of the graphic novel. In and Out follows Corey as he violates his probation, reenters the custody centre, builds a relationship on the outside and fights pressure from his brother to reoffend. The story is based on the experiences of the authors and their peers who were successful in transitioning out of custody – a process they agreed was reliant on establishing new, healthy relationships, connecting to school or training programs

Graphic novel In and Out was created by teens in Victoria youth custody. and finding employment. But with incarcerated youth in B.C. reading at an average Grade 4 level, job prospects are dim. The 76 per cent recidivism rate in the province is closely correlated to their literacy skills, Creedon said. As Creedon helped the teens identify which ideas they wanted most to impart on new offenders, some would stop short of writing on the white board for fear of demonstrating weak language skills in front of their peers. “We just talked about (that) we were trying to educate people about literacy

and take the shame out of it. They were willing to work through that together and be patient with each other and write as a team, to use each others’ strengths and weaknesses to come up with the final project.” Words are paired with illustrations by Meghan Bell, a former employee of the Centre for Youth and Society, a research centre that promotes the health and wellbeing of youth. The authors took ownership of both the content, reviewing pages from Bell as they were completed.

“I was surprised that a lot of the kids were really interested,” Creedon said. “I wasn’t really sure if the idea of the literacy angle would be appealing and I wasn’t sure if a graphic novel would be appealing, but they were really excited.” The Centre for Youth and Society regularly disseminates research through a variety of mediums, including visual art and video, with the aim of making knowledge accessible to those who will make decisions and act on it, said Tricia Roche, manager of research and community partnerships for the centre. “(We) wouldn’t have been satisfied with the knowledge sitting on a shelf in the library,” Roche said. “Not everyone’s going to sit down and read a thesis and people with literacy issues aren’t going to.” The youth who participated can’t be identified or contacted for interviews, but have submitted 100 per cent positive written feedback on the project. “It was cool because it was real kids talking about real stuff,” wrote one youth. “It was cool people trusted us to do this,” wrote another. For Creedon, the steps between pitching the project to celebrating its completion with a group viewing of graphic novel-inspired film X-Men, didn’t come easily. “It was one of the hardest groups that I’ve done,” she said. “I was so proud of my kids for completing this and working through the challenges and being patient with the process and I’m thrilled that the community is so interested in what they’re doing.” In and Out will be distributed to youth custody centres across the province and is available to the public online at youth. society.uvic.ca. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Speedy sentencing takes thief off View Royal streets Kyle Wells News staff

View Royal residents have at least 90 days respite from a prolific thief after the arrest and unusually quick sentencing of Jonathon Daniel Ross last Thursday. Victoria’s Regional Crime Unit arrested Ross, 32, in View Royal last after watching him attempt to break into multiple vehicles. Police watched as Ross entered properties and tried the door handles of parked cars looking for

unlocked doors on the 100 block of Cheltenham Street. Ross, who has a history with similar crimes, was under observation by police because of a rash of thefts occurring from vehicles near where he has been living in View Royal. At one point Ross went to the front door of a home and looked through a mailbox for uncollected mail. Ross did not successfully get into any vehicles but police arrested him on the scene for attempted

theft and trespassing at night. Less than 10 hours later Ross pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 90 days in jail and one year’s probation. As a probation condition Ross is also not allowed to be in View Royal. “I have to say, I’m not sure if I can ever think of a case that moved from arrest to sentencing as quickly as this one,” said RCU Staff Sgt. Gary Schenk. “I couldn’t believe it.” Most offenders, even for petty cromes, often appear in court mul-

tiple times before reaching a point of entering a plea. It’s unclear what happened in court Thursday to have Ross’s case wrap up so quickly. Ross has been living in a house in the area where a number of known offenders have been residing, said Schenk. Police have not had grounds to search the house, but are keeping an eye on it and its inhabitants. “It’s a 90 day sentence, so this individual is out of circulation for that length of time. All by itself,

that will probably result in some noticeable improvement in the property crime rates in this vicinity,” Schenk said. “We’re hoping that will also serve as a bit of deterrent to some of his other associates who are engaged in the same type of criminal activity.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com With files from Edward Hill, News staff.

Erin McCracken/News staff

Moving time 14,300 military members are being posted this fiscal year. The Gazette sheds light on families moving to and from CFB Esquimalt Erin McCracken News staff

W

ith a tired smile, Melissa Whitney watches her eldest son play in the front yard. “Look mom, I’m opening the door,” Keegan, 5, calls gleefully to her, twisting the handle of the front door lying on the front lawn. Movers arrived at the breakfast hour, first removing the door from the Whitney family home in the Work Point military housing community in Esquimalt, before beginning the day-long job of loading boxes of personal belongings, beds and appliances onto a nearby moving truck. Another moving truck is parked farther down the street, a telltale sign that military posting season – which heats up across Canada every summer – is in full swing at CFB Esquimalt. Melissa’s husband, Master Cpl. Rob Whitney, is one of 14,300 Canadian Forces members, including about 1,150 from CFB Esquimalt, who will continue with their careers at another base, at home or abroad, this fiscal year. The Whitneys are headed to CFB Suffield, near Medicine Hat, Alta., after a five-year posting to CFB Esquimalt, where Rob worked as a land communications and information systems technician. Rob’s third posting allows Melissa and their sons, Keegan, and Luka, 3, to move closer to family. “Change is always good,” says Melissa, the daughter of a British army medic father who spent much of his career on the move. “I don’t understand how people can be in the same house, in the same town for years and years and years. I crave change.” Many military members view their career more as a lifestyle than just a source of income. Part of working for the Canadian military often means relocating for training purposes or filling positions left vacant by members who have been promoted to the next rank, or who are retiring or leaving the military. “The whole focus of the military is having the right member in the right position at the right time,” says Chief Warrant Officer Cate Gaudet, who works within CFB Esquimalt’s administration branch, which includes the base orderly room where the files of posted members are managed. “Each position has very specific requirements.” That means big change for families. To help, the Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) launched an e-tool in February called Navigating Your Move. It offers a detailed, step-by-step explanation of what to expect during a move, possible challenges and a relocation checklist, among other links.

“It’s set up like a road map, so it’s like your journey through your move, from the time you get your posting message to the time you unpack your house in the new location,” says Colleen Cahoon, co-ordinator of FamilyNavigator.ca, the website that hosts the e-tool. The website was launched by the Esquimalt MFRC seven years ago and today provides a list of services offered near or at each Canadian base, from housing, medical care and eldercare to special needs, child care and education. “The problem for military families is that there isn’t consistency (in available services) from province to province,” Cahoon says. “Each family is different and they each have different needs once they get to the new place.” Like many military spouses, Jennifer Campbell faced her move by first walking in to her MFRC in Greenwood, N.S. for an information package on CFB Esquimalt. She also went there for resources on how to help her shy daughter with the change ahead. Jennifer’s husband, Cpl. Troy Campbell, is an air force firefighter who has been posted from CFB Greenwood to a ship at the West Coast naval base. The couple, their seven-year-old son, Michael, and daughter Belle, 4, are crossing Canada to begin their new life at the Belmont Park military family housing community in Colwood. “It helped us check off some things on our list,” Jennifer says of using MFRC services. “For me as a wife and a mother of two small kids, I want to know where the school is, where the hospital is.” When the couple came here on their househunting trip in June, they made sure to visit the MFRC in Colwood. “We stopped in to get information on a list of doctors and dentists, because I guess doctors are like a gold mine to find,” says Jennifer, who had never travelled west of Ontario before her househunting trip. “I like that they had the 24-hour (info) phone line ... especially now going without any family around.” Staff at 32 MFRCs across Canada play a pivotal role in enhancing the quality of life for families, arming them with information that can help them settle in their new city, among other services. “It’s that whole starting over each time you move. It’s hard for everybody,” says Mary Lou Climenhaga, the Esquimalt MFRC’s community integration and information and referral co-ordinator. Despite the unknowns the Campbells had to navigate before leaving Greenwood, they remain excited about the future and life in Greater Victoria – for the most part. “We can’t wait to get there. It’s just absolutely gorgeous,” Jennifer says. “The only sad part is leaving family.” For Master Cpl. Whitney, postings are about much more than a career opportunity, and saying goodbye. “It’s the mentality of ‘Oh, I’ll see you down the road,’” he says. “Technically, the military’s a small city, so I’ll run into people five, 10 years from now that I’ll still be good friends with.” editor@vicnews.com

Cops versus firemen Good-spirited rivalry grows over blood donation challenge Kyle Wells News staff

The police are going head-tohead against firefighters, all for a good cause. West Shore RCMP and Langford firefighters are challenging each other to see which department can donate the most blood to Canadian Blood Services. The goal of the first-time challenge is to encourage residents

to donate blood for the summer season, often the busiest. “We’re always happy if our little challenge spurs people to go out and give blood, that’s perfect,” RCMP Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz said. Firefighters and police officers have from July 23 to Sept. 7 to donate before a winner is declared. The losing department will have to wash the vehicles of the winning department – a punishment that Rochlitz said isn’t fair because the fire department’s vehicles are substantially larger. “Pride is on the line for us so everybody’s going to do their best,” Rochlitz said.

“It’s all in good fun because it’s for a very good cause.” Canadian Blood Services will track the donations from the two departments. The number of members in the two departments is fairly even, so each department should have a good shot at winning. “I have a pretty good feeling that we’ll win,” said Langford Fire Rescue Lieut. Steve Adams. “But having said that it’s more or less irrelevant. It’s the fun of the competition and at the end of the day we all win if we get the majority of our membership donating blood.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Two men face possible charges Continued from Page A1

The West Shore police officer was speaking to media later that afternoon. “Actually the heroes are the fire department,” Rothermel said. “There’s still a house standing and it could have got a lot worse.” After the fire department put out the fire they found another dog, a bulldog named Tank, hidden inside the house, scared but otherwise healthy. “With a few whistles and a few callouts he came out from under some boxes and some debris,” said Colwood fire chief Russ Cameron. “Certainly, the fire department never advocates anyone going inside a burning building. I think (Rothermel) made a calculated assessment ... and he made a calculated decision and he went in and I think he did a great job.” In his past, Rothermel has worked fighting forest fires, so he does have some fire training, which he said helped him make his decision to enter the house. Rothermel received some cuts while climbing through the broken window and was given medical attention for minor smoke inhalation. Rothermel said he had a sore throat but Happiness is otherwise felt fine. A lighter moment a beautiful smile! came, Rothermel said, when a fellow officer approached him with a serious expression saying he had one question for Rothermel. The officer then began to sing “Who Let the Dogs Out?” Police arrested two

men in Saanich on the same day as the fire who will likely be facing charges of arson, said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Max Fossum. Police said that the men are known to the owner of the house, and that the arson was a targeted attack. Police didn’t reveal the motive for the attack but Fossum did say that the house was set up as a medicinal marijuana growing operation, though there were no plants there at the time. One of the men is also being charged with public mischief for calling the RCMP to make a complaint about his vehicle being stolen. Although RCMP have yet to fill in the gaps, they said this call led to the arrest for arson. The men, whose names will not be revealed until charges are finalized, are due in Western Communities courthouse on Monday, Aug. 30. Cameron said they think the fire started in the truck next to the house. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

A young Colwood piano student has received an honourable mention in an international competition for her composition Shadows. Kayla Brodrick, 8, wrote her piece early this year and said she came to it by playing around with a group of notes that appealed to her. The finished 25-bar piece is a moody, haunting piece of music that earns its title. “I named it that because most of the notes are played with the left hand and they’re all lower,” Kayla said. “And it just goes really well with that title.” A student at Colwood elementary school, Kayla has been playing the piano for two years. She takes lessons with Catharine Kemp-Roth, an instructor in Colwood who teachers the Music for Young Children program out of her Sonatina Piano Studio. As a part of the slightly unorthodox approach to teaching piano, which includes group lessons, games and improvisation, Kemp-Roth introduces her players to composing as they learn to play. In total, 24,000 entries are submitted to the overall competition, which is put on by the Music for Young Children organizers. Kayla competed in the western region, which runs from Alaska down the coast to California. The recognition came as a surprise to Kayla, who said KempRoth acted sly about the award during a class with other students. She made sure to hand out Kayla’s results last, knowing she had earned an honour. “I was really, really excited,” Kayla said. “I love music, it’s just one of my favourite things. It’s really fun.”

Kyle Wells/News staff

Kayla Brodrick, 8, received recognition for her piano composition Shadows in a competition extending from Alaska to California. Kemp-Roth is a former piano instructor at the Victoria Conservatory of Music who now runs lessons out of her home studio. She said the Music for Young Children program is an inventive and fun program for her students. It encourages creativity but still teaches the theory and essential foundations of the instrument. “It’s very engaging and very child friendly, as compared with strapping them to the piano bench and cracking their fingers with a ruler,” Kemp-Roth said. “As a teacher, I try to find ways to make it really engaging but at the same time give them a solid skillset, because it has to be both.”

Kayla wrote the piece before she was even at the level that she could play it herself. Kemp-Roth would play it for her and help her work through the process. Now Kayla can play her own composition. “It’s about conceiving of the idea and being able to assemble it logically,” Kemp-Roth said. “But now she’s had to play it, which I think is great.” Check out Goldstreamgazette. com to see a video of Kayla playing her award-winning composition.

First Nations land claim could unearth lost history Court cases won or lost on archive documents from around the world Natalie North News staff

As the Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations prepare to take on senior level governments over compensation for the alleged loss of village land in Cadboro Bay 160 years ago, local experts in ethnology and archaeology are preparing to be called on in the case. Grant Keddie, curator of archaeology at the Royal B.C. Museum, testified in a 2006 B.C. Supreme Court battle over the land on which the legislature sits, which ended in a $31.5million out-of-court settlement for the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. While he can’t comment on the specifics of the current case, he knows what to expect during hearings that hinge on prephotographic evidence: ethnographic information, historic documents, drawings, maps and oral histories. “How do you decide whose information is correct and whose isn’t?” Keddie said. “It

Sewage plan not ‘science-based’ Daniel Palmer News staff

Former federal environment minister David Anderson said the regulations are too broad and need to be adjusted for regions like Greater Victoria that treat their sewage by alternative means. “If the federal government decided to have the same snow removal requirements for Victoria as in Quebec, we would call that ridiculous,” he said. But CRD board chair Geoff Young said the regulations are “here to stay” and the region has no plans to apply for an exemption. Any delay could also risk losing the combined $500-million promised from higher levels of government for the project, he said. “It’s very clear through new regulations that the discharge of raw sewage is not going to be something that the governments are prepared to accept.” dpalmer@vicnews.com

The Capital Regional District should request an exemption to new federal regulations that require it to build a sewage treatment system, says an opponent of the project. The Association for Responsible and Environmentally Sustainable Sewage Treatment (ARESST) believes the current system of pumping screened sewage into the Strait of Juan de Fuca is safe and effective. The group held a press conference at Clover Point on Monday and called on the CRD to refuse to begin construction unless an environmental impact assessment can prove the current system is causing harm. “What annoys scientists is when people pretend to be doing things for scientific reasons when they’re not,” said Chris Garrett, a professor at the University of Victoria’s Earth and Ocean Sciences Department.

OUR VIEW

Treatment foes must hound CRD I

n 2007, Black Press journalists had a discussion with a broad-based, highly placed group of scientists from the University of Victoria. Focused only partly on the price tag of the Capital Regional District’s proposed sewage treatment system, they said the net benefit to the marine environment of pumping treated sewage into the ocean, rather than screened raw sewage, would be minimal. Other more pressing problems, such as the loss of marine habitat due to development and the impact of non-native species – not to mention the effect of polluted stormwater – should take financial precedence, they said. The UVic scientists’ arguments, and those of anti-treatment group ARREST and former medical health officer Dr. Shaun Peck remain as compelling now as five years ago. While the CRD held open houses outlining a range of strategies for heeding the provincial mandate to treat the region’s sewage, there was virtually no public consultation around the actual decision to treat or not treat our effluent. That is problematic. But with federal regulations stipulating wastewater treatment now in place, an extra set of regulatory eyes are watching how the CRD proceeds on this matter. If, as former Victoria MP and treatment opponent David Anderson implied on Monday during a press conference, the opportunity remains for the region to lobby for an exemption to the federal rules, based on a lack of scientific evidence supporting the benefits of secondary treatment, that needs to be determined as quickly as possible. But for the feds to make a funding announcement for the project in the high-profile manner seen last week, it’s clear they’ve made up their mind. The Stephen Harper Conservatives are not in the habit of leaving much to chance when it comes to their public image. Pulling an about-face now, especially after coming out with new federal regulations so soon afterward, would make them look pretty foolish. The role of the treatment opponents should now shift to keeping the CRD’s feet to the fire and ensuring hundreds of millions of dollars of tax money are spent wisely.

LETTERS No parking passes were given out for free at Thetis Lake In response to the letter to the editor dated July 11 (“Giving out free parking passes a poor use of CRD resources�) the Capital Regional District would like to clarify that staff did not and do not give out free passes. Bylaw officers do at times distribute Pet Emergency Preparedness decals to vehicles with dog carriers and did so at Thetis Lake Regional Park on July 1. We appreciate the writer’s concern about the prudent use of government resources and can assure residents that it is our first priority. Lloyd Rushton General Manager CRD Parks & Community Services

Long lineups ruined Rock the Shores experience Anyone who purchased VIP tickets for nearly $125 each to the Rock the Shores outdoor concert was ripped off. There were many people in the VIP area complaining and I’m surprised there wasn’t a riot. I had a bad feeling about the concert oranization right from the start. Why would a concert start at 5 p.m. on a Friday when most people work until then? My family and I arrived at 6 p.m. hoping to see Current Swell, thinking we would miss the rush and get in right away having purchased the VIP tickets. We had to walk past the regular seating entrance lineup which was very short, and all the way around to the back of the venue where were surprised to see a very long lineup. It took us 40 minutes to finally get to the entrance after waiting in the hot sun. I was surprise to see only two people working at the gate for the thousands of people in the VIP section. By the time we got in we missed Current Swell. We were certainly surprised there were thousands of people in the VIP area. We were told there would be special VIP seating on a raised platform close to the stage. The VIP seating held about 50 people. The rest of the thousands of VIP ticket holders had to sit on the wet grass and a lot of the viewing was blocked by patio umbrellas. The VIP area was off to the side and near the back of the venue. We had to watch the screens because we were so far away from the stage. We were also told we would have our own washrooms and food and beverage venues. The lineups were so long we had to keep going out into the general admission areas to use the washrooms. The people in the general admisssion area also had access to the front of the stage whereas the VIP section was barracaded off. The sound quality at being so far off to one side was terrible. I have seen the Tragically Hip eight times, and I have been to many concerts and the Rock the Shores was definatley the worst concert I have ever experienced. The organization group should go to a concert at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby to learn how to put on a outdoor concert. There are no VIP areas, no barricades, no tents or umbrellas blocking views, everyone brings their own lawn chair, everyone is free to roam around anywhere with alcholic beverages and it is a family event. They have ample staff to

service the large crowds and the attendance is much greater than the 12,500 at Rock the Shores. Oh and they also ran out of beer at 8:30 p.m., after they sold the beer tickets. Sam Roberts only played a few songs then the rest of his set was cancelled due to a lightning warning. The Hip started a half hour late at 9:30 p.m. and played with an incredible lightning show going on behind them. That was the highlight of the night. Jaime McCormick Saanich

Pacific Tattoo disagreement calls for compromise When I read Marlene Weeks’ letter (Re. “‘Lost smile’ to blame in Pacific Tattoo dispute,� July 18) my first reaction was OK, OK I get it; your little guy is precious beyond belief. He’s a rare bundle sent from heaven, arrived here on the back of his own special unicorn. He’s perfect and beautiful. Long may he run. My happiness for you is complete. I realize his every word is weighty and unique, but could you rein him in (even just a little) when in public places? For pity’s sake, at least try. As for your fellow show-goer, I think she needs to know there’s a difference between a military band concert and a harpist’s solo. She might have cut you and your boy a little slack. From my perspective, you both ruined the show for each other and probably for a lot of other people around you. The reason? Neither of you were willing to compromise. You, for not hushing your boy; her, for being so grouchy about it. Lack of respect for others, and an unwillingness to compromise often leads to bigger problems in all walks of life. Let this be a lesson to you both. John Campbell Langford

Apology issued for joke on councillor’s name Re. ‘Joke on councillors name not funny or appropriate,’ July 18 Recently, one of your readers wrote a letter indicating that I was out of line when I said that “Coun. David Screech sounds like he was into the screech when he tried to defend the $8 million decision to build a new fire hall in View Royal.� That reader may have a point as I in no way intended to convey that Mr. Screech had a drinking problem. Indeed, I don’t even know if Mr. Screech drinks alcohol. It was simply a play on words – apparently a poor one. After the last council meeting in View Royal, a more accurate play on words would be “Coun. David Screech is sounding like a screech owl the way he goes off on View Royal residents attending council meetings.� All feedback is important as it makes us better communicators and for that we should be thankful. John Townson Colwood

Why not have View Royal and Colwood join forces? Does the concern over cost of the new fire hall illustrate again that View Royal is too small to be viable?

Sketchley ‘bluster’ too much in rant against columnist Re. “Razorblade rant goes against individual choice,� July 18) Keith Sketchley’s neo-conservative, right wing bluster is well known to Gazette readers. In his most recent submission the Saanich resident launches into his typical rant. Gazette columnist G.E. Mortimore is the target in this instance. In all too familiar ‘Sketchley Speak,’ Mortimore is accused of “scare mongering,� wanting a “free lunch� and being intimidated by the notion of “individual freedom.� This is the language of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Harperite sycophants. Sketchley’s language is that of a bully: confrontational, personal and devoid of facts. The good news, however, is that thanks to Harper’s Draconian approach to governance – coupled (with neo-conservative bombast gleefully provided by people such as Sketchley) the collective consciousness of Canadians is on full alert. That collective consciousness is responding effectively in every corner of this great country and the West Shore is no exception. That’s bad news for Harper, Clark and their supporters such as Sketchley, because they will all soon be irrelevant. Jeff Morrow Langford

Mandartory sentences needed for illegal hand gun posession Hand guns are for the moment a hot item – about time. Long guns, likely less a menace, were the focus of an extremely expensive and highly debated registry that was considered by many to be little more than a joke, as would be passing a law banning hand guns. Given the lacklustre government action regarding the issue over the years, one could believe that the U.S. NRA’s influence had crept northward across our border. What now will be done to assure Canadians that politicians will accomplish anything beyond considerable party posturing? If serious about such a very critical issue, and to quell Canadian fears, why not pass a law that mandates that anyone caught with an illegal, non-registered hand gun will be subject to a mandatory three year sentence, in the absence of any mitigating circumstances/factors, with repeat offenses doubling any previous related sentences levied?

Vision Matters Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Dr. Cameron McCrodan, Dr. Brent Morrison, Dr. Ann-Marie Stewart and Dr. Chris Snow

Can glasses weaken my eyes? There is a common misconception that wearing corrective lenses weakens the eye and helps speed the deterioration of eyesight. There is absolutely no scientiďŹ c basic for this. Studies have shown no difference in the course of a person’s eyesight with or without glasses. Sometimes it may seem as if the glasses make eyesight weaker. Uncorrected vision may appear worse than it did before glasses. This is because vision seems much less clear without glasses after enjoying the clear vision that they provide. We should not blame glasses for making vision worse as we age. Almost everyone develops the need for reading correction between the age of 39 and 45. This is because the focusing lens inside the eyes becomes less exible and glasses are required to allow us to read comfortably. Straining your eyes and trying to force them to see without glasses will not in any way strengthen them. Actually the best way to keep eyesight at its best at any age is to get regular professional eyecare. Postponement or procrastination jeopardizes comfort, efďŹ ciency and even one’s safety.

Submarine torpedo shot a first for Canada Laura Lavin News staff

HMCS Victoria sent a U.S. navy ship to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean last Tuesday with a precisely aimed war shot. It was the first time in history that Canadian Forces fired a live torpedo in a training exercise. Victoria successfully fired an MK48 Heavyweight Torpedo on USNS Concord, which had been decommissioned for the purpose. “It’s a unique opportunity that we have through RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific Exercise) to actually do live fire, with a target made ready for such an event,” said Capt. (Navy) Luc Cassivi, chief of operations for Maritime Forces Pacific

and director of the Canadian submarine force. While the sailors train for months using “torpedoes” decked out with technical equipment, there’s nothing like using real ammunition to know you’re doing it right, he said. “(This) gives us full validation that everything is working accurately – that it does what’s expected at the moment.” Roughly 1,400 Canadian sailors, soldiers, and airmen and airwomen are participating in RIMPAC 2012, with combined and joint exercises taking place near the Hawaiian Islands until Aug. 3. RIMPAC offers senior members of the Canadian Forces the opportunity to assume positions of lead-

ership, enhancing Canada’s ability to work with other nations of the Asia-Pacific region. “RIMPAC provides the Royal Canadian Navy with ample opportunities to enhance our warfighting skills and increase our interoperability with our coalition partners,” said Vice-Admiral Paul Maddison, commander of the Royal Canadian Navy. “Each nation benefits from the collective diversity of military training and experience of the other participants while completing their own training objectives and increasing their own level of proficiency.” Firing the torpedo was a milestone for the crew, Cas-

sivi said. “It’s an event in which a lot of local people can be proud. Contractors, technical teams who looked after the Victoria’s refit – everyone who supported the sea trials and (training) in Nanoose.” The Concord was a Mars-class combat stores ship commissioned in 1968, decommissioned and

transferred to Military Sealift Command in 1992 and deactivated in 2009. It was environmentally certified before the Canadian Forces spent the day firing on it from both sea and air. The torpedo firing was the “culminating event of the day,” Cassivi said. editor@oakbaynews.com

The innovative world of ‘makers’ Machine tinkerers, computer hackers live a DIY mantra

Vanessa Pattison of Victoria Makerspace peers at a black skull created by a the 3-D “printing” machine in the computing workshop. The group hosts a fair July 28-29.

On a desk below a bright window sits a wooden cube, a rainbow mess of wires spraying from its top and sides forming a 3-D printer. Four metres away sits a mini beer brewery that looks like a 1920s refrigerator in dull black. Under one of the taps, a plastic cup has a skiff of brew in the bottom. Another two metres and there are chisels, lathes and saws, sawdust and wooden workbenches. Next, a propane forge, anvils, hammers. Tucked under the bench, a casting forge for bronze work. The Victoria Makerspace, on Central Saanich Road, is the hobby shop of one of the most diverse range of talents on the south Island. Its members are designers, woodworkers, blacksmiths, hackers and do-it-yourself brewers. “Makers” are part of a growing worldwide trend with roots in the artisan movement. The idea is people can make the things they need by learning from local experts, rather than

buying products exported from faraway markets. “The thing most driving me is building a community of people who like to learn. Really neat things come out of it,” says Derek Jacoby. Jacoby started Victoria Makerspace a year and a half ago. It began as a hackerspace – a society of people who develop open hardware and media – but became a makerspace for more diverse talents soon thereafter. “The mix (of talents) is sort of a model that I think is really making a name for itself,” Jacoby says. He likens the space to a library, where people can gain access to information, or in this case, tools and know-how, for a certain project. Thomas Gray signed on with the Victoria Makerspace with Jacoby from the start.

He leaves his laser cutter at the space – a tool well out of the reach of most people’s budgets – for others to use. “Thirty years from now, this is going to be astounding stuff and people are going to have one at home,” he said, referring to the laser cutter. “That’s why I think it’s important to see this stuff now. My kids are going to do their university projects with a laser cutter.” With the goal of meeting other makers in the region and possibly making connections that can help the Makerspace grow beyond its hacker, wood and metal shops, Jacoby and the space’s members are hosting the Island’s first Mini Maker Faire in North Saanich July 28-29. “We’re really trying to reach out to people who make things with their hands,” Jacoby says. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Two golf pros out of Olympic View Golf Club earned a little green by going for the green earlier this month. The pair won the 2012 G&G/Fletcher Leisure Group PGA of B.C. Pro-Assistant Championship at the Talking Rock Golf Course on Little Shuswap Lake. Kevin Maxwell and “Kevin made Matt Matheson edged out a team from Kelowna in a a 35-foot bomb on sudden death playoff after our last hole today finishing tied through 36 and hoped it was holes over two days. Shooting 68 and 61 in enough to be in their two rounds of best ball and scramble-style contention.” – Matt Matheson golf, the duo ended the weekend tied at 129 and had to head back to the 18th tee for a Scotch-Alternate shot showdown. “We complimented each other very well out there and made key putts when we needed them,” Maxwell said in a statement issued by the PGA of B.C. “Kevin made a 35-foot bomb on our last hole today and hoped it was enough to be in contention,” Matheson said. Both teams made par on the first two holes, but Kelowna got into trouble on the third with two errant tee shots that put par out of reach. Maxwell started off the Olympic View team right with a 310-yard drive down the middle and Matheson put it on the green with the second shot. From there it only took a couple of putts to take the victory. First place came with a cheque for $2,250 for the pair. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Power ballads help reclaim historic street Roszan Holmen News staff

A block party typically suggests a gathering of neighbours, tables filled with potluck food such as hotdogs and chips, and kids playing on their street, which is closed to traffic for the afternoon. Get rid of these notions for the upcoming Amelia Street Block Party. Or amplify them by a factor of 1,000. That’s the number of people expected at the Aug. 4 event. Block parties look a little different when they’re organized by Nick Blasko. Fresh from the Rock the Shores concert headlining the Tragically Hip, Blasko and his team are throwing a block party before gearing up for Rifflandia, a fourday music festival in September that he launched in 2008. In 2010 Blasko and his colleagues bought a 1913 Amelia Street house, and renamed themselves the Amelia Street Artists. “The street in particular is a street I’ve always been fascinated with growing up in Victoria,� said Blasko. “It is a beautiful row of heritage houses, yet the other side is

And while the needle exchange has been closed for several years, the two-block street never fully

recovered, Blakso said. It is, however, a street in transition. “People are sprucing up their properties; there are major condominiums building built nearby,� he said. The party is a way to celebrate a

unique corridor in the city that is often overlooked, he said. It’s also about celebrating the city’s 150th anniversary. Blasko received a 150-celebration grant, and plans to highlight the history of the street during the event. Theatre Skam will perform historical skits throughout the day, and old photos of Amelia Street will be on display. So far, the oldest image is from the 1950s but Blasko is hoping to track down older photographs. Today, all the turn-of-the-century houses are occupied by businesses. Through organizing the party, “we’ve been slowly getting to know our neighbours, which has been nice,� said Blasko. The event runs from noon to 8 p.m., and features a long line up of local musicians, such as Acres of Lions, Chris Ho, Clay George and others. There will also be chances to participate, such as with live-band karaoke. For people more inclined to sing along with the crowd, for one hour a DJ will play power ballads. A power ballad is a mid-tempo

ballad with epic vocals, said Blasko, adding, “think Phil Collins or Journey.� “They bring about the most ridiculous sing-along. It is the most hysterical yet awesome participatory thing you can ever witness. These are songs that have these really dramatic and recognizable moments in them and the crowd just all goes wild.� Hosting the event is Michael Delamont, a comedian who recently completed the fringe-festival circuit across the country. “To get him to commit this much time to us is amazing,� said Blasko. rholmen@vicnews.com

Six Victoria voices win award

Submitted photo

The members of Hexaphone took home the Best Performance of a Canadian Composition award from the International Choral Kathaumixw in Powell River.

Hexaphone, Victoria’s six-member a cappella ensemble, won the Elmer Iseler Prize for the Best Performance of a Canadian Composition at the International Choral Kathaumixw, a biennial five-day choral festival in Powell River. The award was announced at the closing gala concert on July 7. Hexaphone, which includes Carolyn Howe (soprano), Hannah Mitchell (alto), John Doughty (tenor), Ian Bullen (tenor), Nicholas Fairbank (baritone), and Paul Boughen (bass), sang Four Limericks written by composer Fairbank. The composition for six voices was presented in the Contemporary Choral music competition at Kathaumixw. Hexaphone repeated its winning performance of Four Limericks to the assembled

audience and international choirs attending the gala concert. The ensemble also placed second in the two classes that they entered, competing against choirs from Canada, Puerto Rico, Australia, China, Mexico, the United States and the Philippines. Now in its 10th season, the group was formed in 2002 with the goal of performing diverse styles of vocal music, one voice to a part. Hexaphone has become a highlight of Victoria’s music scene, singing music of many styles and periods, with a particular focus on new Canadian works. The group has appeared at the Victoria Symphony’s New Currents Festival, the Voice++ Festival, and the New Music In New Places concert series. llavin@vicnews.com

Lowry named coach of Victoria Royals NHL veteran coached Calgary Hitmen, Flames Travis Paterson News staff

The last time Dave Lowry coached in the Western Hockey League, he led the Calgary Hitmen to 59 wins in 72 games. Add in the Hitmen’s 14 playoff wins from that 2008-09 season and Lowry was behind the bench for 73 wins in total. That’s more than three times the amount of wins the Victoria Royals got in 2011-12. It’s a fresh start for the Royals, with Cam Hope named general manager on July 6 and Lowry named head coach on July 19. But there’s no denying the new bosses have their work cut out for them. “Opportunity is the reason I’m here,” said Lowry, who was with the Calgary Flames as an assistant coach the past three seasons. “As soon as Royals owner Graham Lee said (Marc Habscheid would be replaced) by two different positions, general manager and head coach, it solidified my interest. I called the team to let them know I was interested. “For me it’s coaching only. I’m not interested in the GM side of it.” Lowry, a player’s coach, said he’ll push an up-tempo style of play. As a pro, Lowry played 19 years

in the NHL, starting in 1985 with the Vancouver Canucks, and ending in 2004 with the Calgary Flames. He moved into an assistant coaching role with the Hitmen in 2005-06 and was groomed into the head coaching role under friend and fellow ex-NHLer Kelly Kisio, who handled the GM and head coaching duties.

“For me it’s coaching only. I’m not interested in the GM side of it.” – Dave Lowry In 2007, Lowry’s name tag switched from assistant to associate as he took more responsibility on the bench, eventually taking over the head coaching duties from Kisio in 2008. “Kisio is a good friend and we had a great professional relationship that allowed me to grow into the role of head coach,” Lowry said. The expectations for that 2008-09 season was to rebuild the Hitmen, Lowry added, but instead the team finished first in the WHL regular season and lost to the Kelowna Rockets (and Jamie Benn) in the WHL finals. “Just goes to show if you establish a good leadership group and culture it looks after itself.”

Victoria marathon relaxes standards Faster runners please, and more of them. The GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon has expanded its criteria to increase the number of sub-three hour marathoners with second category of elites. There are now Elite A and Elite B qualifying standards for the full and half marathons, in effect for the Oct. 7 race. Bonus prizes for breaking a course record of $5,000 for the marathon and $1,000 for the half marathon are now up for grabs to permanent residents and refugees, whereas only Canadian citizens were eligible in prior years. Elite B athletes will receive a complimentary entry and some other services. “We want to reward all of those who have made Canada their home,” said the marathon’s elite program co-ordinator Jonathan Foweraker in a release. The total purse for 2012, including incentive bonuses, is $38,800. Visit runvictoriamarathon.com for the standard times. sports@vicnews.com

Lowry and Hope are now in the process of getting to know each other and the team. “There was about 20 names that came forward for the coaching job, all with legitimate backgrounds, enough to be coaching at the WHL level,” Hope said. “The process started even before I was announced as GM (on July 6). We had to be ruthless and whittle the list down to 10, but at no time did anything happen that made me second-guess Lowry as the top candidate.” With the coaching role filled Hope, and Lowry, can turn to the draft, rookie and training camps, which will begin on Aug. 18, 22 and 25, or thereabouts.

WHL in the family Dave Lowry has two NHL drafted sons, Joel, 20, who played with the Victoria Grizzlies from 2009 to 2011, and Adam, 19, who will return to the Swift Current Broncos this year. During Joel’s time in Victoria, he signed a scholarship deal with Cornell University and was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the fifth round of the 2011 draft, having been previously passed up in the 2010 draft. The Winnipeg Jets selected Adam in the third round of the 2011 draft. Dave is confident that Adam would refuse to come to the Royals, in such a situation that he was available. “As a father, I want to say no, but then I’d love to have him. But

Don Denton/News staff

Dave Lowry is the new head coach of the Victoria Royals WHL hockey team, named on July 19. I don’t think he’d want to come. Even so, it would have to be a very specific situation where, as a player, he’d be what we needed.” It wouldn’t be the first time with this franchise, as one of Marc Habscheid’s first moves when he was hired as the Chilliwack Bruins GM in 2009 was to trade for son Zach’s playing rights. sports@vicnews.com

Fast facts The Vancouver Canucks drafted Lowry in the sixth round of the 1983 draft from the OHL’s London Knights. The Toronto Maple Leafs picked Russ Courtnall seventh overall that year from the Victoria Cougars.

Island zone tops at Summer Games Big wins from the Summer Games Travis Paterson News staff

Victoria-area athletes helped the Vancouver Island-Central Coast (Zone 6) team to the top of the B.C. Summer Games standings with 101 medals, 38 of them gold. Thousands of the province’s best young athletes gathered for the closing ceremonies of the B.C. Summer Games in Surrey on Sunday. More than 2,300 athletes competed in over 20 team and individual sports, with 375 medals doled out. “These Games saw a number of records fall as B.C.’s best came together,” said B.C. Games Society president and CEO Kelly Mann of Victoria. “We are seeing an escalation in skills in several sports, and many of the young people who competed here are well on their way to becoming provinciallevel athletes.”

On the water Zone 6 rowers, many from Victoria, dominated with each of the 11 athletes getting in on the team’s nine medals. Individually, Saanich swimmer Justin Howe, 14, pulled in gold in the 400-metre individual medley, and silvers in the 200-m freestyle and 200-m backstroke. His perfor-

Zone 6 boys win volleyball gold over Fraser Valley. mance bodes well for the upcoming agegroup nationals.

Volleyball Zone 6 won gold in boys volleyball, defeating Fraser Valley two games to one in the final. The team, which is heavily made up of Victoria players, defeated rival Fraser Valley during the ongoing club season. Coach Rick Wutzke of Lansdowne middle school said it’s the first time his team won against Fraser Valley, making the importance of this title even greater. “The biggest joy is beating (Fraser Valley) after coming second to them in both club provincial and club nationals,” Wutzke said. “We persevered, winning the last set 16-14, and the full gym of spectators went wild.”

Sam Willett, a Mount Douglas secondary student, won gold in the boys discus, silver in the hammer throw and was fourth in the javelin at the Summer Games. Victoria volleyball player Alan Lau didn’t hide his excitement and happiness, and on the podium, expressed his appreciation for the experience of the Games. “We had great fun, we had new players in the team, we also made great friends with other players and teams. “Volleyball is our passion and that’s what helped us reach this victory.”

Swimming, biking and running Island Swimming athletes Holly Henry and Farisha Arensen kept up Victoria’s rep as a triathlon mecca. Henry is the gold medal winner in the girls triathlon, and also competed in the aquathlon (swim and run) and duathlon (bike and run), but did not make the podium in the latter events. Arensen, however, won both the aquathlon and duathlon, key elements to a strong future career in triathlon.

Second to none For all 38 gold medals Zone 6 won, the team came close to winning a few more. The Zone 6 girls softball team lost in the gold medal final, 7-0, to Fraser Valley. Also falling in the final was the boys rugby team in a nail-biter at South Surrey Athletic Park against Fraser Valley. Zone 6 scored first and took a 5-0 lead but Fraser Valley rallied back and ended up winning gold 12-5. “We’ve played Fraser Valley so many times (in different tournament formats),” said Brandon Schellenberger, who played hooker for Vancouver Island and also plays soccer in Victoria. “We’ve won one against them in Burnaby, and in Victoria they beat us in the finals, so taking silver twice is good (for us).” The B.C. Games cauldron will be lit again in 2014 in Mission for the Winter Games and in Nanaimo for the Summer Games.

Two members resign from CRD deer advisory group Brittany Lee News staff

Two members of the Capital Regional D i s t r i c t ’s deer management advisory

group have resigned from their roles. The Gazette has learned that Robin Bassett and Kerri Ward sent a letter of resignation to the

CRD board in early July, after expressing concerns about the process of the citizens advisory group’s (CAG) meetings and the possible direction the

board may go. Bassett and Ward felt that the facilitator was trying too hard to get members of the CAG to reach consensus on management options,

according to Geoff Young, chair of the CRD. They also felt that not enough information, such as data on deer population and

technical information, was being provided to committee members, he said. Young stressed that he is still confident the CAG will provide useful

information to the board. “We never expected that the committee was going to solve everything for the board, and I don’t expect that will be the case,” he said. The board will consider not only the CAG’s report, but technical information, feedback from the generalpublic,including the constant flow of letters and emails the CRD receives, and the concerns of the resigned members. Young admitted that perhaps he was “a little bit optimistic” in his thinking that this would be a quick discussion that could be had in one afternoon. “My feeling is now that it’s probably not going to be a case (where) the board gets the final report and then quickly makes a firm and final decision. I suspect there will be a lot further discussion.” The CAG has assessed all 11 possible management options and is nearing the end of its regular meetings. Currently, the group i s re v i e w i n g i t s discussions and adding any second thoughts before summaries of each method will be posted online. A report to the C R D ’s p l a n n i n g , transportation, and protective services committee is expected in August, with a final report to the CRD board expected in September. The board’s hope is that there are strategies the now nine-member committee can agree on that would address the deer problem to some degree, Young said. Neither Bassett nor Ward could be reached for comment. For more information about the CAG, see crd.bc.ca/ deermanagement. reporter@vicnews.com
