Wolf chases Discovery Island visitors away B.C. Parks closes island to public for safety reasons Laura Lavin News staff

A lone wolf has won the battle for Discovery Island – for now. As of Monday (July 23) Discovery Island is off limits to the public for safety reasons. In response to the presence of a wolf, which was confirmed two weeks ago, B.C. Parks has temporarily closed the park to public access. While the wolf is not displaying any behaviour that is a concern to B.C. Parks or the Conservation Officer Service, the temporary closure of the park will allow them time to assess the situation and determine the best course of action to ensure the continued health and well being of the wild animal, while ensuring park visitors are not exposed to potential encounters. Campers on Discovery Island first reported a stray or abandoned animal to conservation officers in early May. It is not known where the wolf came from, but Courtenay resident Rick James has a theory. “Three (or) four years ago, three of us archaeologists were working on a Willows Beach residence when the owner came along with (a dog) off leash and it attacked us,” James said. “We were eating our lunches and it ran in at us … and literally grabbed the sandwich out of my hand. “I told the woman owner she needed to keep her wolf/dog on a leash and then she walked down to the end of the beach and let it loose again. It came back at full gallop and once again grabbed my lunch right out of my hand with its big jaws.” James said he wasn’t injured by the dog, but his co-workers jumped in the pickup truck for safety. “Me? I had some words with the owner, who by no means was going to apologize or accept she needed to assume control of the animal,” he said. He then lodged a complaint with Oak Bay animal control.

Increasing the buzz in Oak Bay Simple bylaw change would welcome more hives to the area Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

A simple switch from “and” to “or” could see a swarm of bees set up residence in Shirley Hunter’s flower bed. The Oak Bay woman hopes to add a little buzz to her backyard, and oomph to her flowerbed, with a beehive. “We would like to have bees, it’s good for our gardens,” she said. “And there’s the lack of knowledge about sudden colony collapse. … Last year 65 per cent of the Island’s bees died.” Her friend and neighbour Barb Vucko,

Treatment foes go on offensive against project Group calling for fact-based decision-making launches salvo Daniel Palmer News staff

The Capital Regional District should request an exemption under new federal regulations that require it to build a sewage treatment system, says a local group opposed to 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 prof. Chris Garrett of the University of Victoria’s Earth and Ocean Sciences Department. The federal government’s Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations were announced last week and require all municipalities to meet a threshold for sewage treatment. They estimate 25 per cent of municipalities across the country will require sewage treatment upgrades to comply. Former federal minister of environment 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,” Anderson 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 is very clear through new regulations that the discharge of raw sewage is not going to be something that the governments are prepared to accept,” he said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Care agency calls for more beds Care providers association asks VIHA to re-issue requests for proposals

Health Authority to consider other options for long term senior care beds in the region and to put out a request for proposals (RFP) within 30 to 45 days. “Capital Region seniors have waited too long for new long term care beds,” Ed Helfrich, BCCPA CEO, said in a statement, released July 11. “VIHA should initiate a new public re-tender as soon as possible.” The association’s request comes after Oak Bay council voted, late last month, against VIHA’s plan to replace Oak Bay Lodge as a 320-bed facility. VIHA knew that a return to RFPs would be necessary once height and parking variances for the proposed redevelopment of the Lodge were rejected, a spokesperson said. “That’s exactly what we’ve done,” VIHA spokesperson Shannon Marshall said, adding however, it could take several months before a final RFP is developed. “We’re moving ahead with that,” she said. “We too, would love to have it issued sooner rather than later but it is a very, very complex process and we need to take the time to ensure that (it’s done) with solid due process and that it’s as complete as possible before we issue it.” reporter@vicnews.com 170 g pkgs

“There are three ways to manage bees’ flight to keep them safe,” he said. “One is platform, elevation, one is a fence around it and one is distance from the property line so when they get to the property line they’re above our head.” Oak Bay’s bylaw, currently under review, requires all three. He and Hunter both found council receptive to altering it to allow for “or” instead of “and” opening the options. “There was a very positive response when I presented it,” Denluck said. “We appreciate what our council is doing, whether they support it or not,” Hunter said. “Ideally we’ll be able to interest more people, which can only contribute to a healthier community. cvanreeuwyk @oakbaynews.com

hen Metchosin potter Ann Semple started going blind, she was

devastated. The thought of losing her vision also meant losing her love of art and pottery. The 64-year-old has been a potter since she was 24 years old and feared she would have to give up her craft and sell all of her tools and supplies when her vision began to drastically deteriorate a year ago. Semple is a member of the Coast Collective Art Gallery in Colwood. When painter Linda Anderson, also a member of the gallery, heard a fellow artist was thinking of throwing in the towel, she stepped up to offer support. For nearly 50 years Anderson has been a volunteer with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. She has spent much of that time working with blind artists and developing coping strategies to enable them to continue their passions. The first time the two met, Semple refused to even go into her studio. She was riddled with depression and couldn’t fathom how she would continue. “At that point, she hadn’t been in her studio in three months,” Anderson said. “I used to go in there everyday,” added Semple. At the second visit, Semple returned to the studio and Anderson started helping her transform the cluttered room into a space where Semple could move freely and grab what she needed without having to see anything. “I had millions of tools all over

OUR VIEW

Treatment foes must hound CRD In 2007, the News 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 local 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 invasive, non-native species – not to mention the effect of polluted stormwater – should take financial precedence, they said. We believed them then and still find their arguments, and those of anti-treatment group ARREST, led by ex-Colwood mayor John Bergbusch and former medical health officer Dr. Shaun Peck, compelling. 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 environment minister David Anderson implied Monday at an ARESST press conference at Clover Point, 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 CRD project in the highprofile manner seen last week, it’s clear they’ve made up their mind on this issue. The Stephen Harper Conservatives are not in the habit of leaving much to chance when it comes to their public image. Pulling an aboutface 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. What do you think?

After determining your smartphone’s location, the site displays the name and phone number of the local maintenance contractor who can take the report. For those who haven’t joined the smartphone era, there is an oldfashioned option. Dialing 5-1-1 anywhere in the province gives access to a toll-free line that connects to recorded DriveBC messages. Agarwal said use of that service has been declining as phones with web access become more popular. The 5-1-1 service also requires you to use the keypad to select your route from a numerical list, so drivers would have to pull over rather than breach the new restrictions on using handheld devices while driving. The 5-1-1 system still gets surges of heavy use during major events like the recent flooding. The plan is to upgrade the system to allow voice recognition, so drivers can use headsets to get updates on the move. tfletcher@blackpress.ca Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com.

LETTERS Wastewater must be treated: CRD The Core Area Wastewater Treatment Project will bring the CRD into compliance with two sets of legislation which apply to wastewater discharges; the B.C. provincial Municipal Sewage Regulation, under the Environmental Management Act, and the Federal Wastewater System Effluent Regulations, under the Fisheries Act. Without moving forward with the Core Area Wastewater Treatment Project, the CRD would not be in compliance with the new standards, and face penalties including fines. To be in compliance with both the provincial directive and federal regulations concerning the discharge of wastewater effluent, the CRD is required to have secondary sewage treatment in place by 2020. The new facilities will be designed to meet these

requirements and will be a significant benefit to the residents of the region and our receiving marine environment. The CRD has a commitment to meet regulations. We are fortunate to have a funding commitment from our provincial and federal government partners. Many other communities are now wondering how they Denise will fund complying Blackwell with the new federal standards. The CRD and the core area municipalities of Colwood, Esquimalt, Langford, Oak Bay, Saanich, Victoria and View Royal have been working on

the cost allocation for the wastewater treatment program for the last two years to arrive at a fair and equitable approach that has incentives and is understandable, stable and straightforward to administer. The CRD will allocate costs to the municipalities and each municipality will decide how best to recover costs from their residents. Cost allocation will be based on each municipality’s required treatment capacity. The CRD’s analysis to date shows that the highest average household cost by municipality is less than $500 annually and the lowest average cost by municipality is just over $200 annually. Denise Blackwell Langford Councillor and Chair, CRD Core Area Liquid Waste Management Committee

Our ocean is healthy

Treatment too costly

Over the past 11 years friends and I have been regularly kayaking (we kayak all year) along our beautiful coastline from the Sooke area, past Victoria and Sidney, as far north as Maple Bay. We have never seen any signs of raw sewage. What I do see is an amazingly healthy, natural environment with tens of thousands of seals and seabirds and in certain places and times of year, sea lions. Occasionally we are fortunate enough to

Christy Clark and her government is dumping a huge property/utility tax upon us. We will be forced to pay up to $1,000 extra per household each year for sewage treatment and it will make the environment worse. The large threats to our marine creatures are ocean warming and acidification. The acid level is increased by carbon dioxide dissolving to produce carbonic acid. The hundreds of tons of concrete needed to build the facilities will put more

encounter whales. I see healthy, green eel grass and many varieties of healthy seaweeds swaying in the daily ocean currents. In our local waters which have such great visibility, I see an abundance of smaller sea creatures attached to rocks and pilings and living on the ocean floor. Isn’t all this an indication of a healthy ocean? If the current raw sewage treatment (isn’t it 99 per cent water?) is such a health hazard I am not seeing it in or on our local ocean.

carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Heating sewage and pumping sludge up the 18 kilometre pipeline will increase our carbon footprint even more. To quote Denise Blackwell (Chairperson, CRD Liquid Waste Management Committee) “It is basically more a political decision. Quite frankly, people probably got tired of having to deal with Mr. Floatie.” Please make your feelings known to our elected officials before it is too late. Mike Platts Oak Bay

Vision Matters Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered. Dr. Neil Paterson

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 scientific 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 flexible 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, efficiency and even one’s safety.

Local firm to redesign Oak Bay website Up and coming web designers will develop municipality’s new site with innovative features, says mayor Brittany Lee and Laura Lavin News staff

The vision of a new municipal website is becoming clearer. Based on advice from staff, Oak Bay council has chosen a local design company to develop a new site for the municipality. Using leading-edge technology, the website will be modern and interactive, according to Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen. “It will be vibrant, dynamic, and informative,� he said. “It’s going to be easy to navigate, easier to search, and we’ll have innovative features on it that we’ll work to develop.�

One feature will include email notifications to residents wanting to stay up-to-date with certain topics as changes or additions are made by council. It will also enable residents to access more detailed information, such as bylaws and other municipal regulations not currently available on the municipality’s website. “It’ll be more user-friendly, from not only the public’s point of view, but our staff’s point of view,� he said, adding it will allow staff to easily update content. “The goal is for us to enable a proactive tool for us to be able to communicate. Now we’re constrained on getting information out there,� said Coun. Kevin Murdoch, who

The hope is to have it up and running late this fall. The estimated cost of the project is less than $50,000. “At the end of the day pretty graphics are great, but if the information is not there, there is no actual value to the website – and that is our primary concern,� said Murdoch. Residents who applied to be on the website’s steering committee were chosen during the in camera portion of Monday night’s council meeting. The group will work with Murdoch and Coun.

The cost: oh my God. The availability: oh my God. What are we going to do? I was totally taken by surprise.” Belinda Macey, program coordinator at Victoria-based Child Care Resource & Referral suggests parents begin their search for child care within the Årst three months of their maternity leave to avoid the kind of panic families such as the Depasses can encounter after waiting too long to start looking.

Parenting & Sex

Oh, to be ‘A Good Mother’ Recently, I stumbled across a name that I’ll forever associate with my eternal, often misguided, attempts to be “A Good Q SUSAN LUNDY Mother.” FEATURE WRITER Chatting on a podcast, Meg Hickling sounded innocuous enough – even pleasant and well-informed. But as an authority on sex education, she sent me into a parenting frenzy when her Årst book, Speaking of Sex, hit the shelves. Her assertion that children should know reproductive details by the time they attend school hammered me with horror. My Åve-year-old daughter, Danica, was in kindergarten, blissfully believing The Garden Metaphor. It wasn’t quite how I’d planned it. I intended to promote early and open sex education for my kids. This meant that when Danica began asking reproductive questions at age two, I would calmly outline age-appropriate details. I would raise sexually healthy children. Instead, when the question arose, I used The Garden Metaphor: “Oh, the daddy plants a seed in the mommy and the baby grows in her tummy.” It worked. It was Åne. (Although she gave a rather curious look to the zucchini seeds her father brought home one day.)

Reading Meg Hickling, of course, I understood I had failed. So I set out to be “A Good Mother.” I read, re-read and memorized Hickling’s spiel. I developed a plan to pick up Danica from school, take her out for lunch and then, after a leisurely, homey conversation, get down to business. However, the car had barely left the school driveway when I blurted out, “Danica, would you like to learn some science?” I went through the process, using all the correct names, edging through the tougher stuff, and giving the details in as few words as possible. She was quiet for a moment, and then asked if that was the only way to make babies. “Weeell, no,” I said, perking up. I then launched into an animated explanation of artiÅcial insemination. It was over. I had done it. I was “A Good Mother.” Then she said, “Momma, can I ask you an important question?” I gripped the steering wheel. Oh no, I thought, here it comes. It’s going to be awful. “Why does a car die when the battery dies? Is the battery like a heart?” (I later overheard Danica telling her younger sister, Sierra, that they could stay together all their lives and have babies by going to see a special doctor in Vancouver.) Sierra was four before she popped the question. I was lying in bed beside her and thought she had already dozed off. “How are babies made?”

Things are much easier the second time around. It was dark and cozy and I was an old pro at this. I answered the question and was feeling pretty good about it. She sighed and rolled over. Then came a drowsy little voice: “When will I grow the penis and when will it fall off again?” Okay. So practice doesn’t always make A Good Mother.

OAK BAY NEWS - Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Oak Bay Family The Big Issue continued from 11 to assisting women grow business in B.C. through loans and professional guidance. The centre provided a loan for Depass, and by early 2008 she bought Chris’s Pizza. After two start-up years marked by some “really bad” Ånancial times – not knowing whether she would take home a paycheque after covering expenses – the challenges have lessened, yet still exist. “There are other stresses to owning your own business. I never really have a whole day off. And I do my own books, so I’m constantly trying to squeeze hours in here and there to keep up with the accounting side of it. If somebody calls in sick, and people are on holidays, I’ve got to go in for extra shifts, but having the Æexibility of getting to take my kids with me and not having to worry about who’s going to watch them – it’s very Æexible and convenient.” “With maternity leave at 12 months, many women are getting creative and using this time to reinvent themselves,” said Cecilia Mkondiwa, manager of loans and business advisory services for the Women’s Enterprise Centre in Victoria. “By the end of 12 months many women Ånd that going back to work is not worth it after factoring in the high daycare costs and the time they will have to spend away from their children.” In the four years since Depass bought the business, she has been able to involve herself in her children’s school activities and parent groups, while her kids have grown and taken on responsibilities at Chris’s Pizza. And while Kyla would like to follow her mom’s lead in the pizza business, Depass is happy to have her empowered by

the experience and eventually move on to higher education. “We have no child care costs and our kids were at home with their parents, which is important to us,” Depass said. “The thought of the daycare – having to be up at 5:30 in the morning to get three kids up and dressed and lunches and breakfast and off to a daycare facility and then downtown for work at 8:30 in the morning before having to do the same thing again (at the end of the day) – it was a scary thought.” Back at Child Care Resource & Referral, Macey recommends parents not only start early in their search for care, but that they also delve deep and check out eight to 10 potential settings. Some places, such as the University of Victoria Child Care Services, have about a two-year wait list. Touch base with the care provider periodically throughout the wait to conÅrm your position without being too pushy, she said. “You don’t want to be a pest, but you do want to be starting a communication – then keeping that communication going,” Macey said. “You need to understand that it’s going to be a job (to Ånd care).” While the cost of child care is unmanageable for many families, it hasn’t gone up much over the last few years. Annual increases are on average about $25 per month, with the average rates for infant care in Greater Victoria ranging from $780 to $1,027 per child per month. For moms considering entering business and would like information on mentoring, guidance and Ånancial assistance is available through the Women’s Enterprise Centre, visit womensenterprise.ca. nnorth@saanichnews.com O

This Family’s Life

Q&A Q JENNIFER BLYTH, BLACK PRESS

Daisy Orser – here with her sons Tai, 14, Raine, 8, and Diem, 4 – opened the Rootcellar Village Green Grocer four years ago with her husband, Adam Orser. Together they tackle running both a business and their busy family!

Q

What’s your secret to keeping your family organized?

A

Rolling on floor laughing. Is there an abbreviation for that? ROFL right? Hmmm… I suppose I put a lot of effort into gratitude. Instead of feeling like I could be doing better, I try to appreciate how well we’re holding it all together. I guess my secret would be not sweating the small stuff – no one ever died because they forgot their soccer cleats!

Q

Favourite tricks to keeping the kids on the healthy path for eating, drinking and exercise?

A

Owning a grocery store certainly helps! Most of our ‘family time’ activities are focused outdoors, so exercise happens accidentally, at the beach, camping, hiking, so this one’s easy for us...and a love of fresh, healthy food appears to be genetic.

Q

How do you find balance between the demands of work, children, friends and family?

Q

A

A

Kids and family always come first. If I can start my day with a nice cup of coffee and 10 minutes of peace and quiet, preferably in a sunny spot on my deck, I can usually hold it together until everyone’s tucked into bed at night!

What is your family’s favourite Oak Bay activity you enjoy sharing together?

Beaches and boating! Our coastline is stunning and there’s always somewhere new and exciting to explore, plus the beach and ocean is the one environment that easily spans the age of our children (four, eight and 14) – we are all happy on the ocean.

A report to the CRD’s planning, 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. “Although I would have preferred, needless to say, that the committee as a whole had been able to present a report with all the members present, I have been aware, and I think all board members were aware from the beginning, that this was going to be a difficult issue.” Neither Bassett nor Ward could be reached for comment.

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

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.

Sparring partners Winner Jeff Sparling leads the Elite A race with Pro City Racing teammate Kevin Ford, right, during the Windsor Park Criterium in Oak Bay on Sunday (July 22). Raph Lalumiere and Curtis Deardon were second and third, respectively, in the A race, with Jon Benskin, Lionel Gaudet and Trevor Mackenzie going first, second and third in the B race. Sunday was also the final day of racing for the Axel Merckx Youth Development series. Cyclists 11 to 18 years old did a time trial clinic at Western Speedway, track cycling at the Juan de Fuca Velodrome and sprint races at Windsor Park on Sunday.

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.
