Victoria’s crime stats take major nosedive More work needed in Capital Region Daniel Palmer News staff

Victoria saw a 14-per-cent drop in reported crime last year compared to 2010, but police still have a long way to go before the region can claim to be Canada’s safest. According to the annual Crime Severity Index, released by Statistics Canada on Tuesday, Victoria improved its ranking among 238 municipalities across the country. The index differs from crime rates by measuring the seriousness of crimes. In 2010, Victoria was 17th worst on the index, but it dropped to 30th last year. “We’re proud of what we achieved, but we also recognize that more work needs to be done to reduce crime,” acting VicPD Chief Del Manak said in a statement. Vehicle theft in Victoria dropped by 41 per cent in 2011 from the previous year, and by 38 per cent across the Capital Region over the same period. The Capital Region ranked 16th out of 33 metropolitan areas across the country for overall crime severity.

Today marks the opening of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. More than a dozen homegrown athletes and many more who train here will compete.

It’s an emotional roller coaster ride for families of athletes walking onto the world stage at the Olympic Games

Greater Victoria Olympians in medal contention with first competition dates

nne and Terry Light remember well the excited phone call they received from rowing coaches at Stelly’s secondary following open tryouts for the school’s rowing team. Their son Kevin, a Grade 12 student at the time, had never sat on a rowing machine until that day, when he beat all existing team members on his first try. “They called us from the car, beyond excited,� said Terry. “They latched on to this athlete.� Now a gold medalist for Canada in men’s eight rowing, Kevin built his rowing career at Stelly’s and later the University of Victoria, and the Lights were drawn into a closeknit network of rowing families. After world championship wins in 2002 and 2003, Anne and Terry traveled with other family members of the men’s eight team to watch what they were confident would be a gold medal heat in Athens. The team finished fifth. “As newbie Olympic parents, going on past record, we were thinking ‘Of course they’ll just get in the boat and win like they always win and wouldn’t that be terrific?’� Anne said. “All of a sudden they’re not winning and all of a sudden they’re falling behind and what’s going on? “You bury your head in your hands and think this can’t be happening, but it was in fact happening.� The pressure created by media coverage and hype surrounding the Olympics were too much for the athletes and those close to them. The days that followed were dark. “I don’t mean to sound melodramatic, but it was like a death,� Anne said. “Other than the athletes and the families of athletes, (people) didn’t understand the extreme low of that.� Balancing the extreme lows, are the extreme highs that come along with winning on the world stage. In 2008, Kevin was on the team that came out ahead of the pack in Beijing and won gold in the men’s eight. In the stands once more with the Olympic families, decked out in red and white, Anne attempted to watch, at times turning away. Terry doesn’t recognize himself in a video from the event. “My neighbour back home doesn’t get it, my best friend doesn’t get it, but that other parent who’s right beside you – they get it,� Anne said. “I couldn’t take my eyes off of my son and his crew mates. I’m getting all choked

Olympian Kevin Light’s sister Heather holds a picture of his Olympic gold medal rowing crew, with their parents Terry and Anne, in their Sidney home. Watching their son win gold in Beijing was a high point in their lives. up just thinking about it. ‌ You see the Canadian flag going up and you think, there’s your‌â€? Anne pauses, overcome with emotion. “Terry, you carry on,â€? she says with a nervous laugh. “I’m not sure I can do any better,â€? he says over the audible lump in his throat. “It’s emotion that you can’t describe and maybe it’s even embarrassing, because you’re just watching, but there’s that pride in the accomplishment.â€? The Sidney couple – Terry, a semi-retired pharmacist and Anne, a former special education teacher at Claremont secondary – have another Olympian in their life. Their daughter Heather is a swimmer who has won medals at the Special Olympics B.C. The Lights are humble about what their children have been able to achieve. “I’m more proud of Kevin as a person than I am of his athletic accomplishments,â€? Terry said. “An Olympic gold is just a part of your life and there are many things to be proud of your child for.â€? Shifting from rowing to cycling, May 27 was a proud day for all of Victoria as 31-year-old Ryder Hesjedal beat the competition by just 16 seconds and became the first Canadian in history to win the Giro d’Italia. Leonard Hesjedal, Ryder’s father, the man who drove the cyclist to his first downhill mountain biking competition in

Shawnigan Lake at just 14-years-old, surprised Ryder at the finish line. Like the Lights in Beijing, Leonard – along with Ryder’s friends Seamus McGrath and Cody Graham – had the maple leaf flag and hockey stick in hand. They were really “Canucking it,â€? Leonard said. “There was a moment when he first saw me that he said: ‘I knew you’d be here, dad. I knew you’d come,â€? Leonard said. “For me to hear those words – there were so many other times that I wondered if he wished I were there in person.â€? Leonard and his wife Paige Porter, who both work for the Capital Regional District, have also felt those low moments. It was just more than a month after the Giro win when they were struck with the news of Ryder’s Tour de France crash and subsequent exit from the race on July 7. “It was pretty heartbreaking, but we understood,â€? Leonard said. “When they hit the ground it can be pretty earth-shaking, body-shaking, scarring over scars. ... If he gets up ‌ everything’s good.â€? Leonard and Paige were there as Ryder rode a mountain bike in the Games in Athens. They’ll take in the road race and time trials in London from their Metchosin home. Though Paige and Leonard won’t be roadside physically, their thoughts will be in London and the event will be celebrated

The parents need to give them the support. The parents need to be there to pat them on the back and watch them do what they’re doing.� The Lights will also follow the 2012 Olympics from the Island as Kevin, now 33, makes the trip to London as a spare on the men’s eight. Despite the family’s intense connection to the Olympics, it’s one that could go quietly unnoticed by those outside their circle. “We don’t ever open up the conversation with ‘This is our son, the gold medalist,’� Anne said. “We’re not the kind that will boast about it because everyone has sons and daughters who they’re proud of in different ways.� nnorth@saanichnews.com

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

Canada’s wildcard

CHAMPION Simon Whitfield gunning for third and final Olympic medal Travis Paterson News staff

Y

Photo by Rumon Carter

Victoria-based triathlete Simon Whitfield pauses during a cycling trip in Arizona in 2011. Whitfield, 37, will be in tough against younger competitors in London, but is still considered a threat to medal.

ou can count on Simon. Leading the Canadian team into London’s Olympic Stadium as our flag-bearer for the Opening Ceremony today (July 27) is no burden for the 37-year-old, who is competing in his fourth and last Olympics. While the gold and silver medal winner is less likely to make the podium, he’s a medal hopeful nonetheless. “Mentally, I’m in a great place, but it’s going to be a big task to take down the young guys,” Whitfield said. “I’ll go down swinging.” The sport the Victoria resident defined with a gold medal in Sydney in 2000 has spawned a new generation. Many of the competitors Whitfield will face in London were teenagers back then, including home-course favourites, brothers Alistair and Jonathon Brownlee. And that’s fine with Simon. “There’s definitely a trend to older athletes and longer careers due to sport science and better physiological understanding,” he said. “It’s evolved.” There’s a team factor too. Although the sport is made up of individual entrants, Whitfield won a silver medal after he was famously led out

by Hamilton’s Colin Jenkins at Beijing in 2008. Jenkins paced Whitfield in the swim and, for a portion of the bike, with a plan of conserving Whitfield’s energy. Consensus is it worked, as Whitfield surged from behind to take first in the final kilometre, only to fade in the final 200 metres. Jenkins finished 50th. This time Whitfield is joined by Brent McMahon, a North Vancouver transplant to Victoria, and Oakville, Ont. native Kyle Jones. But as obvious as it might seem, Triathlon Canada’s executive director Alan Trivett said tactics are a last-minute decision. “There’s not going to be a team strategy to employ this time. If they’re in a chase pack on the bike, they’ll work together or protect each other on the course.” However, McMahon, a veteran of the 2004 Olympics, told the News earlier this year that decisions on Olympic racing strategies are made close to the time of the race, depending on who is in the best form. Triathlon is an unpredictable sport, where years of disciplined training can go out the window by a kick in the face during the swim, a trip during the transition out of the wetsuit or a well-executed team strategy. “It’s often about what happens on the day,” McMahon said. “That’s what triathlons are.” And no one is better at preparing themselves for the day than Whitfield. sports@vicnews.com

City priority-setting inching along Victoria’s planning department likely facing busy few years ahead Roszan Holmen News staff

More than seven months into their three-year term in office, city councillors are still whittling down the list of priorities that will guide city resources through 2014. The delay has hamstrung city staff, who don’t know how to proceed in the meantime, Coun. Lisa Helps said. “It’s a brutal way to run an organization.” For instance, when staff came forward with a draft naming-rights policy last week, council debated at length whether to proceed before its priorities are set. It’s not the only example of staff proceeding on initiatives that could theoretically be Lisa Helps crossed off council’s priority list, and tossed to the trash. Last week, the city sent out a request for proposals to conduct a review of the city’s organization and its services. Council has strongly supported the idea so far, but that may change, depending on cost. In the coming weeks, staff will price out council’s top 16 priorities – as previously selected through a vote. Council will narrow down the list further once they know the rough price tag of each item. “We’ll pick what we can afford,” Coun. Shellie Gudgeon said. That could prove to be not very much, as council’s number one priority on the draft list is a budget-reduction strategy. “We don’t have any money,” she said. “Some very, very difficult decisions need to be made.” Also on council’s draft priority list is another budget-related item: generating city revenue.

Gudgeon, however, cautions that it takes staff time to generate revenue, which in turn presents a cost to the city. “Then the decision has to be made: is it worth it?” Other top priorities include developing plans for the waterfront, Rock Bay and the Douglas Street corridor. The heavy focus on planning Shellie Gudgeon may prove too taxing for one department. “That’s all impossible for the planning department to do,” Helps said. Priority setting is a procedure done by each newly-elected council. The finalized priority list is intended to focus city resources, in terms of funding and staff time, on a few key initiatives. One item that didn’t make the priority list is public engagement on Crystal Pool – a facility nearing the end of its serviceable life. Helps found it “flabbergasting” that a majority of her colleagues didn’t vote for this initiative. “We have this giant white elephant that’s sucking at least $1.2-million (in its) annual operating budget,” she said. Required in the near future will be a decision to either replace or overhaul the aging facility. “If we, as a council, don’t care enough to ask the public ‘what do you want?’ then our only option is to close the pool down,” she said. rholmen@vicnews.com

The top six City initiatives receiving at least seven of nine council votes: 1. Develop a budget reduction strategy 2. Conduct a service and organizational review 3. Examine public transportation options 4. Determine approach for waterfront local area plan 5. Conduct local area planning for Rock Bay 6. Enhance business process, such as permits and inspections

“YOU AND THE LAW” COURT MIGHT HAVE TO INTERPRET PROPERTY PURCHASE CONTRACT By Janice Mucalov, LL.B.

Buying a home is the most significant investment that most of us make. Contracts for the purchase and sale of property involve a substantial amount of money and should contain all important terms. If they do not, the deal may go sideways and a lawsuit might be necessary. To help a wronged buyer or seller, the court might imply a missing term in the contract to ensure it has the meaning intended and to give business effect to the contract. Take the agreement between Doug and Sandra (not their real names). Sandra and a neighbour owned land across the street from Doug. He proposed that Sandra and the neighbour subdivide their two parcels of land into five lots, three of which would be carved out from Sandra’s parcel. She would then convey two of her lots to Doug, who planned to develop them as singlefamily homes. Doug paid a $20,000 deposit, and Sandra and her neighbour started applying for subdivision approval. But the process was more expensive than Sandra anticipated, and she eventually stopped pursuing it. Doug sued to have the agreement enforced. The BC Supreme Court noted that the written contract for sale was sloppily prepared. But even though the contract did not address the parties’ obligation to obtain the subdivision, the court found it was obvious from the parties’ agreement and dealings that there was an implied term that Sandra (the seller) would do her best to obtain the subdivision. When she stopped pursuing it, she broke the agreement. Doug (the buyer) was therefore entitled to compensation equal to the increase in market value of the two lots, had they been subdivided, over the contracted-for purchase price.

In another case, a husband and wife agreed to sell their two island waterfront lots to a buyer (for recreational property) and to “assign” (transfer) a waterfront lease attached to one of the lots to him. The lease assignment needed government approval. But neither side obtained this approval before the sale was to close and the agreement didn’t say whose obligation that was. After the buyer was late in paying the deposit and the sellers extended the closing date once, the sellers refused to extend the closing again and treated the contract as at an end. The buyer sued to have the property sold to him for the contract price. (By the time the case went to court, the property had appreciated significantly.) In response, the sellers argued it was the buyer’s responsibility, not theirs, to request the government approval for the lease transfer but that he did nothing until it was too late. The trial court decided it was the buyer’s responsibility to use reasonable efforts to get the government approval and implied this term. However, the BC Court of Appeal decided the obligation was that of the seller, as implied by law. The appeal court noted that, in general, every agreement for the purchase and sale of land implies that the seller is able to convey good title to the property. A seller who agrees to assign a lease has an implied legal obligation to obtain any necessary consent. In this case, there would have to have been an express term in the contract to make it the buyer’s obligation to get the government approval to the transfer of the waterfront lease. So the buyer ultimately won on appeal. Real estate contracts can be tricky. If you require legal assistance to interpret the contract or sort out any disputes involving your transaction, consult your lawyer.

Cyclists could benefit from proposed new markings near new bridge. Street Bridge entrance. The staff proposal is in response to public feedback about how best to plan for the public land and pathways on both

sides of the new bridge. More than 200 people attended public meetings on the topic this spring. Additionally, 124 people filled out a survey on their preferences. In summary, people asked for better walking and cycling routes, plazas where city events and festivals can be held, and new green space. People also wanted traffic-calming measures. The city has allocated $1.3 million for these public-realm features. Elephant’s feet crossings are marked by large squares of white paint on both sides of the crossing. The city proposes to place one of these bicycle crossings at the northeast end of the new Johnson Street Bridge. rholmen@vicnews.com

The Victoria Salvation Army is a huge step closer to replacing its mobile kitchen, the Beacon Bus. Last week, an anonymous donor gave $50,000 towards the $100,000 needed to replace the

mobile kitchen and emergency response vehicle. “We are extremely grateful for the support and interest from the public with regards to the Beacon Bus and the campaign to replace it,” said Kyla Ferns, special projects officer. The stalwart vehicle has helped volunteers provide meals, clothing and compassion to emergency workers and community members for 15 years.

That placed Greater Victoria behind such regular crime stats leaders as Vancouver, Abbotsford-Mission and Kelowna – Regina and Saskatoon had the highest ratings – but was a worse showing than such larger cities as Calgary, Toronto and Ottawa. The overall drop in crime numbers for Victoria is “indicative of the significant progress we are making towards

our goal of being Canada’s safest region,” Manak said. The national crime severity index decreased by six per cent over the same period. VicPD has since seen a rash of vehicle break-ins in 2012, up by more than 160 per cent from the same period last year. The police department hopes to make Greater Victoria Canada’s safest region by 2020. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Oyster habitat creates extra headache Beds below bridge throw curve ball at replacement project Roszan Holmen News staff

Few people likely know the Gorge Waterway is home to a native species of oyster. But the little creatures have played a part in delaying the construction of the new Craigflower Bridge, which links Saanich to View Royal and Esquimalt. A federal environmental assessment of the bridge replacement project is moving slowly, and even more so since thick oyster beds were found under the bridge. “The oysters are probably the key issue (behind the delay),” said Jim Hemstock, special-projects manager in the Saanich engineering department. Federal law requires that the bridge replacement project results in no net loss of marine habitat. “If we’re disrupting the oysters, then we need to compensate,” Hemstock explained. While Olympia oysters are listed as a species of special concern, they are more abundant in the Gorge than anywhere else on Vancouver Island. The World Fisheries Trust has been monitoring their population since 2009. Last week, researchers collected

Roszan Holmen/News staff

Camosun College environmental student Nicole Barrette led last week’s oyster count in the Gorge Waterway, and shows off the difference in size between the native Olympia oyster, on the left, and the larger, invasive Japanese oyster. Discovery of Olympia oysters under Craigflower Bridge could prove to be expensive for Saanich’s bridge replacement plan. oysters at three sites for counting and measuring, before returning them to their beds. For the first time, this year the

79-year-old Craigflower Bridge was included in the survey. Investigation revealed that the Olympia oyster population is significantly

denser between the wooden pilings than any other oyster bed along the waterway. Areas under the bridge hold 400

oysters per square metre, compared to 250 per square metre elsewhere. The findings have big implications for Saanich and View Royal, which are jointly replacing the bridge. While the environmental mitigation plan has yet to be approved by the federal government, it will likely involve transplanting each oyster, Hemstock said. “It’s going to be very expensive.” World Fisheries Trust has been hired to help design the compensation plan. “The new pilings will be concrete, which oysters like,” said Trust executive director Joachim Carolsfeld. To help oyster larvae settle on the pilings, he recommends texturing the concrete with horizontal ridges. To help predict other factors in the oysters’ survival, he is overseeing related studies in the Gorge. One is looking into the presence of invasive species and their interaction with Olympia oysters. Pending the receipt of a grant, he also plans to look at the movement of oyster larvae. The health of the oyster population is a good barometer of water quality and health of the ecosystem, Carolsfeld said. They’re also important in their own right, he said, as they filter water and provide habitat for other sea life. rholmen@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Riding changes need a rethink This year, federal electoral boundaries commissions are redrawing riding maps to squeeze in 30 more seats, including six more in British Columbia (giving us a total of 42). For many people in the Capital Region this is a yawn-inducing exercise that won’t impact their lives. But for people in the western half of Saanich, the West Shore, Vic West and Sooke, the riding they live in could change significantly. The commissions are out to create ridings encompassing roughly 111,000 people. Greater Victoria could get a new, geographically small urban riding called Esquimalt-Colwood – effectively everything west of the Blue Bridge and east of Veterans Memorial Parkway in Langford and Colwood. In turn, the old Esquimat-Juan de Fuca riding, created in 1987 and spanning from Esquimalt to Port Renfrew, would see its urban base gouged, then be fused with the Cowichan Valley, from Ladysmith south. This may work on a map, but it seems to ignore the geographic, cultural and economic realities of the south Island. The Malahat creates a sharp divide in many ways between Cowichan and Greater Victoria. Creating federal ridings that meet population criteria and mesh with regional realities is tough, but boundary commissioners in B.C. may want to sharpen their pencils again for the Island. People interested in how their riding could change can visit www.redecoupagefederal-redistribution.ca. The commission is accepting written submissions until Aug. 30. A public hearing goes Oct. 17 in Victoria. Have your say on where you vote.

Thoughts are with Olympians As the Olympic torch is lit in London today and athletes begin competing on a global stage, our thoughts and hopes are with those who we’ve found training on our lakes, roadways and nearby gymnasiums. We wish Island Olympians and all the Canadians the best of luck as they pursue their dreams and represent their country with pride. What do you think?

LETTERS Wrong Douglas attributed to fir tree Re: What’s in a name? (News, July 20) This story seems to imply everything around here with the name “Douglas” was named after our first governor, James Douglas. Douglas is a very common Scottish name. The Douglas fir, however, was not named after this fellow, illustrious as he was in our recent history. Scottish naturalist, David Douglas, whom I’ll bet spent far more time in the bush in these parts than did politician James Douglas, had this great tree, Pseudotsuga, named in his honour along with numerous other plants and critters he studied. Also, if you go out into our woods and encounter a little brown chattering squirrel (not our arriviste grey urban squirrels), that’s a Douglas squirrel, also named after David, not James. Jurgen Pokrandt Victoria

Some more history revealed about Douglas Re: What’s in a name? (News, July 20) The Douglas fir, known as Pseudotsuga, has nothing to do with James Douglas. It was named after David Douglas (1799-1834), a Scottish botanist/explorer who discovered and named many plant species from western North America and the pacific Islands. He met a tragic end at the age of 35, while botanizing in the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), when he fell into a wild cattle pit-trap containing a wild bull,

which gored and trampled him to death. He is considered to be one of the greatest exploring botanists of all time. Lorna Dougall Victoria Editor’s note: We acknowledge being too zealous on our James Douglas attributions. While he did have more than a dozen geographic locations and other facilities named for him around B.C., the Douglas fir was indeed not one of them. We apologize for this error.

Nurse practitioner valued member of team Re: Nurse practitioners provide quality care (Letters, June 13) I strongly support the role of nurse practitioners, as described by Rita Schreiber. The NP at the clinic I attend is clearly equal in her knowledge and most skills to the MDs. She has often supported me back to wellness with advice and treatment that was not offered by my physician, partly due to time constraints, as most have only time to attend to ‘one ailment’ per visit. The nurse practitioner has taken more time and assisted with problem solving and alternatives. We need more nurse practitioners, as they are valuable and cost-saving members of the health-care team. Some doctors just have to get over resistance to their presence and enlist them, especially in a clinic practice where their skills could solve the problem of ‘waiting time’ for appointments.

City seeks outside expertise for internal service review Chamber CEO dubious at idea Roszan Holmen News staff

Victoria council is clear that cutting the city’s operational budget is its top priority. The question is how to get there. For the answer, council is looking to expert advice from outside the organization. In a closed meeting June 28, council approved spending up to $75,000 on a ‘service delivery and organizational review.’ This week, the city posted a request for proposals, which closes Aug. 2. “It’s a question of ‘(is there a way) to do these services more efficiently?’” said Mayor Dean Fortin. “It’s also about taking a look and saying ‘should we be doing these services?’” The review also includes an evaluation of contracted services. Its mandate bears some similarities to an internal position that was recently terminated. In March 2010, the city hired Wael (Bill) Fanous as its first director of internal audit and

risk management. In 2011, Fanous earned $172,000 in salary and benefits, but he quit his job in December. The city took the opportunity to re-evaluate the position. As a way to save money, it decided to split up Fanous’ former duties. Soon, the city will post a position to handle risk management and insurance claims. It has no plans, however, to replace Fanous’ internal audit responsibilities. These include performance outcomes, and policy and resource allocation decisions. Harrison said these duties have been absorbed by the finance department. Still, Coun. Lisa Helps argues that leaving the position unfilled could be a mistake. “If the number one priority is reducing the operating budget, one of the mechanisms to do that might be to say ‘hey, actually we do need to fill this position … to see what we’re doing internally that could result in savings,’” she said. Bruce Carter brings a different perspective. The CEO of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce questions whether expert advice will make a difference, whether it comes from an outside consul-

tant or a staff position. An internal auditor is challenged by having a perspective that is limited by being on the inside, he said. “We’re at the stage where any more money spent on senior staff salaries at the City of Victoria is too much money.” At the same time, he questioned whether the consultant’s review will be able to accomplish more. “Are we about to spend a whole lot of money on a report that may have some very good recommendations that there is no way council will ever implement?” Coun. Geoff Young also points to the political realm as a stumbling block. “With regard to the idea of ‘improving efficiency’ or finding better ways to do things, the problem is simply that the city is so small that almost every decision becomes a political decision,” Young wrote in an email to the News. “Whether it is our grants to organizations (or) the way we collect garbage … It is tough for staff to suggest clear savings proposals that will not ignite political discussion.” rholmen@vicnews.com

Submarine torpedo test latest coup for Victoria Laura Lavin

Deactivated U.S. navy ship Concord sinks at the culmination of a firing exercise at the Pacific Missile Range, in Kauai County, Hawaii, on July 17.

News staff

HMCS Victoria sent a former U.S. navy ship to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean last week with a precisely aimed shot. 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, an international military exercise taking place near the Hawaiian Islands until Aug. 3. RIMPAC offers senior members of the Canadian Forces the opportunity to assume

positions of leadership, enhancing Canada’s ability to work with other nations of the Asia-Pacific region. Firing the torpedo was a milestone for the crew, Cassivi 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, a former Mars-class combat stores ship deactivated in 2009, 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

Soprano sings opera – minus the horns Edward Hill News staff

Sarah Vardy has a couple of hours to study her music at home before hopping a ferry to Vancouver to perform in the Marriage of Figaro. Between managing auditions around the world, refining her voice and actual performances, Victoria’s rising opera star has little time to catch her breath. The 33-year-old soprano who lives in Langford has her year set out before her. She’s earned the right to study under Canadian tenor Richard Margison in Hamilton, Ont., for August. In September, she’s been invited to a vocal competition in Palermo, Italy, followed by a three-week opera concert tour of China over Christmas. Somehow she’ll squeeze in auditions in German opera houses this fall and winter after being invited back, based on a threemonth tour earlier this year. In the meantime, Vardy is fine-tuning her thunderous voice under American vocal coach Luke Housner, who is leading the Marriage of Figaro this week in Vancouver, followed by Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the University of Victoria next week. Becoming an opera singer is a childhood dream of Vardy’s, but it’s a relentless schedule of performance and practice just to get a chance to audition for a job. “Competition is fierce, especially being a

Edward Hill/News staff

Up and coming Victoria-based opera singer Sarah Vardy is performing in Don Giovanni at the University of Victoria next week. The busy 33-year-old soprano will be auditioning in Germany, touring China and competing in Italy this year. soprano. Everybody is a soprano,” Vardy says. “You’ve got to look to your strengths and what you bring to the table that is different.” For Vardy, that would be her deep, penetrating voice that can cut through a full orchestra. It’s the kind of classic voice people associate with opera.

“I sing a more dramatic repertoire. Verdi, Puccini, any Romantic repertoire,” Vardy says. “Anything that that involves death and destruction. It’s definitely a stereotype ... what I sing is the stereotype of opera, minus the horns.” The Don Giovanni public performances are the products of week-long opera work-

shops for young up-and-coming performers. Like any instrument, Vardy’s voice needs tuning and crafting to make sure her vowels are perfectly formed and her Italian, French or German hits the right dialect. She likens it to golf – even Tiger Woods never stops working on his swing. “You never arrive at a point in opera singing where you say, ‘Now I’m done,’” Vardy says. “Your voice changes, you have different roles and repertoires. Now I’m working on half-screw turns ... it’s a little tweaking all the time, every day.” In Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Vardy has the role of Donna Anna, who spends most of the opera trying to solve and then avenge the death of her father. Performed in Italian with English subtitles, Vardy says Mozart writes operas that are accessible and easy to follow, and has familiar music scores that have filtered into popular culture. Shifting gears to Donna Anna from her recent Countess role in Figaro is a welcome challenge that takes Vardy out of her comfort zone. “This role is high note after high note. (Donna Anna) is melodramatic. She comes across as agitated,” she says. “It’s a challenge, but a good challenge.” The Vivace production of Don Giovanni is July 31, Aug. 1-2, 7 p.m. at the University of Victoria MacLaurin Building, Music Wing room B037. Tickets are $10. editor@saanichnews.com

Lovers separated … by Sasquatch? Devon MacKenzie News staff

The Peninsula Players and North Saanich’s Muse Winery are teaming up again to put on their third annual summer show. Suddenly Sasquatch, an original musical written by Saanich resident Sasha Moriarty-Schieven and produced and directed by Gerald and Chantelle Schieven, will take place on the newly built Ortega Terrace at the winery, designed to let the scenery in with its open sides and to keep playgoers protected from the elements with its roof. This year’s show follows two characters, Amelia and Roderick, as they are pressured to marry by their

domineering mothers. But everything is turned upside-down when Amelia meets the Sasquatch. Playgoers can enjoy lunch or dinner from the Bistro Muse before they take in the show, if they wish. The two previous shows put on by the Pen Players and Muse were Dial ‘M’ for Merlot in 2010 and Gone with the Wine in 2011. The show runs July 28 and Aug. 11 at 7:30 p.m., July 29 and Aug. 12 at 4 p.m. Tickets are $25 for evening performances and $20 for matinees and are available at Muse Winery& Bistro, 11195 Chalet Rd., North Saanich, or by calling 250-656-2552.

heldon Crawford is accustomed to challenging himself. As a military police officer at CFB Esquimalt and with a 2008 tour of Afghanistan under his belt, the 25-year-old corporal understands the mental and physical strength required to get the job done. But when he trades in his uniform for cycling shorts this fall to conquer the 1,000-kilometre Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, Crawford will be thinking of the hundreds of B.C. children diagnosed with cancer who struggle with much greater challenges every day. “I remember "I remember seeing the Tour de Rock, it was seeing the Tour de a big thing growing up on the Island," Crawford Rock.

The money is earmarked for pediatric cancer research and also helps fund Camp Goodtimes, a medically supervised summer retreat for kids dealing with cancer. "It gives the kids and their families the opportunity to have fun and not worry about chemotherapy and all their medical appointments," Crawford said after he visited the Maple Ridge camp last week.

Victoria filmmakers making waves A-list actors join film project Natalie North News staff

Love demands sacrifice. The central theme of local filmmakers Jeremy Lutter and Daniel Hogg’s latest film, Floodplain, could also be applied to the difficult process of shooting it.

The coming-of-age tale follows Vic and Duncan – played by Kacey Rohl (The Killing, Sisters & Brothers, Red Riding Hood) and Cameron Bright (The Twilight Saga, X-Men 3, Thank You for Smoking), respectively – as the young couple fulfill their childhood promise to raft across a floodplain in Invermere, B.C. It’s a story that both director Lutter and writer-producer Hogg identify with, but it’s also one

that requires a certain degree of sacrifice when it comes to filming almost entirely on an isolated marsh outside of Maple Ridge. “The nature of the project is inherently challenging with these actors out on the water. ‌ We need boats and water safety people and locations that we’re looking at all have location fees attached,â€? said Hogg, who adapted the script from a short story by D.W. Wilson, a University of Victoria writing department grad and winner of the BBC National Short Story Award. “I also think it’s a beautiful story, a story that deserves to be told,â€? Hogg

added. The folks at the National Screen Institute agreed. This spring Floodplain was awarded the national film and television training school’s drama prize, which includes ongoing mentoring and $30,000 in cash and in-kind services towards the production of the seven-to-10-minute film.

“Unfortunately, it was for movie-related services, not marine-related services,â€? Lutter said with a laugh. “I don’t know why on Earth I would choose to shoot a film based on a raft. Most people shoot protagonists and antagonists in a room, sitting down and talking at a dinner table.â€? The filmmakers are now faced with the challenge of fundraising for the cost of constructing the raft, as well as the additional costs associated with filming safely on the $ water. For this they set a fundraising goal of $3,500 on crowdfunding site indiegogo. com, where supporters can track the progress of the film and receive perks, such as original storyboards, for donating to the creative campaign.

VICTORIA NEWS - Friday, July 27, 2012

Tea business offers lifelong learning experience G reen tea is the new coffee for consumers seeking a healthy alternative. Maccha, then, is like green tea on steroids. Since 2005, Jared Nyberg, who operates downtown Victoria tea retailer and wholesaler JagaSilk with wife Miyuki, has been doing his best to spread the word about the pleasures and benefits of this potent style of tea. Nyberg describes Don Descoteau maccha – microBiz Beat milled into a near powder – as “green tea that you eat.” After watching him whip a hotwater-and-maccha combination on the counter into a frothy, green mixture, using a traditional bamboo whisk, one experiences consuming the tea rather than drinking steeped water. The drinker is meant to savour the mixture for a few seconds before swallowing it, allowing the various flavours – much like the characteristics of wine – to come through in the palate. From a health standpoint, Nyberg claims maccha is 120 times more powerful than regular green tea, in terms of the antioxidants contained within.

From a business angle, the move to retailing has been gradual for the couple, who met while Nyberg was living in Japan. Nyberg began selling maccha wholesale as a 22-year-old University of Victoria student. Since then, he and his wife have become steeped in maccha and its traditions – studying the growing and preparation process, its properties and ideal preparation – and shared much of that knowledge with the public through JagaSilk’s Academy of Tea program. “We didn’t want to start off winging it,” Nyberg says of waiting to open a retail café. “It can be very disappointing.” The calming, Japanese-themed JagaSilk Teabar, which opened in 2009 in Nootka Court and was recently expanded, is considered the “slow bar,” he says. Their Spiced Water tea and coffee house, opened last fall with partner Stephen Lyons in the former Budget Rent-a-Car kiosk up Courtenay Street behind The Falls, is the “fast bar” catering to the “coffee culture.” In a blossoming retail tea market – Nyberg calls it a “resurgence” – JagaSilk aims to differentiate itself by being able to trace its products from “seed to cup,” not homogenizing the preparation process and staying creative. Their strategy has seen them

That, he says, guarantees hyperfresh tea for consumers and commercial buyers. Pop in for a bowl of maccha or a cup of maccha latte and prepare to be educated.

THEY SEEK GOLD (but we’ll take their best) Reaching the podium a community effort Travis Paterson News staff

As the Olympic torch fires up today, parting words from rower Dave Calder echo as resolutely as they did at last month’s Olympic send-off. “It’s Canadian to be modest, but our pride has caught on like wildfire.” And so it has, especially in Victoria, where Simon Whitfield has become as much a national icon in his own country as the flag he’ll wave at the Opening Ceremony in London. Calder has seen the rise in national confidence and credits president Marcel Aubut of the Canadian Olympic Committee for bringing athletics to the forefront in recent years. But it’s also no secret the rigorous training regimes of an Olympic athlete has its ups and downs. And Calder is quick to

From the Island, with love With so many athletes based out of Greater Victoria for the area’s year-round training climate, it’s getting hard to keep track of native athletes, temporary visitors, and transplants who’ve come to stay. While the national training centres for swimming, rowing and triathlon are obvious draws, as is the Canadian Sports Centre Pacific, some come to Victoria in hopes of an international athletics career. Not to be overlooked, the UVic Vikes athletic program is a key piece of the Island’s Olympic development system. The Vikes are responsible for starting many Olympians on their way, such as alumnae Rachelle Viinberg (nee de Jong) and Darcy Marquardt. The pair of rowers are in the women’s eight, though their time at the university has come and gone. Marquardt, however, only took up the sport upon arriving at UVic. Lindsay Jennerich, 29, also competed for the Vikes. Jennerich, a Claremont secondary grad, and Patricia Obee, 20, from Stelly’s secondary, will race the lightweight double.

Jennerich is originally from here and has no intentions of leaving. So much so that when Obee joined Jennerich in the double last year, the two led a successful coup against Rowing Canada to train in Victoria rather than London, Ont., the previous home of the women’s double. And unlike Marquardt and Viinberg, some Vikes do stick around. Vikes alumni Gabe Bergen and Doug Csima are in this year’s men’s eight crew, which is based out of Elk Lake. Other members of that boat, Andrew Byrnes and coxswain Brian Price, are from Ontario, but are embedded in Victoria. “I’ve been living in Victoria for about seven of the last 10 years, full time since January 2007,” said Price, who won gold with the boat at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. “My two kids were born at Victoria General Hospital and my wife works in Brentwood Bay.” Regardless, Price still lists his hometown as Belleville. “Gotta keep the roots intact.” sports@vicnews.com

Don Denton/News staff

Rowers Andrew Byrnes, Linsday Jennerich, Patricia Obee and Gabe Bergen go from training at Elk Lake to competing in the Olympics at the Eton Dorney Rowing Centre just outside of London this week.

O’Byrne directed play and took a few swats at the ball during a pickup game of street hockey with the youth hockey players on the outdoor sports surface at Kirby’s Source for Sports in Saanich. Complete sets of new hockey gear, from sticks to skates, were handed out to each of the 28 youths, purchased by the NHL Players’ Association Goals and Dreams foundation. “All the kids are from different backgrounds and different situations in life,” O’Byrne said. “Some have played more than others, a few haven’t played at all, and they’ve been chosen by their local hockey association because they showed strong values.” O’Byrne is a St. Michaels University School grad and former junior A player with Victoria Salsa (now Grizzlies) and Nanaimo Clippers, and is readying for his third full season with the Avalanche.

The camp will also feature WHL players Keenan Kanzig of the Victoria Royals, Sam Grist of the TriCity Americans, and BCHL players David Walchuk of the Victoria Grizzlies and Josh Bryan of the Nanaimo Clippers. Young, who last coached the major midget South Island Thunderbirds, played with O’Byrne on the provincial midget champion Racquet Club Kings 13 years ago. All of the proceeds from the hockey camp are going to KidSport Victoria, enough to cover the registration grants for 28 players. “Altogether (the NHLPA and KidSport money) is $30,000, a huge lift to the youth hockey community in Victoria,” said Patti Hunter, chair of KidSport Victoria. “For (O’Byrne) to choose KidSport is awesome.” “My parents taught me to appreciate things,” O’Byrne said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to play in the NHL and I remember the volunteers who helped me along the way.” sports@vicnews.com tournaments, July 28 to 29: the Mosquito AAA Tier 1 at Allenby Park, the Mosquito A at Triangle Park and the Pee Wee A (July 26-29) at Carnarvon and Esquimalt Park.

WINDOW CLEANING

Give them power. Give them confidence. Give them control. A paper route is about so much more than money. These days kids want and need so many things. With a paper route they not only earn the money to buy those things, they also gain a new respect for themselves. They discover a new sense of confidence, power and control by having their very own job, making their own money and paying for their own games, phones and time with friends.

A digital window into the Olympics Edward Hill

Saanich parents Shannon Hunt, left, and David Garrison, right, wrote and designed a London Olympics guidebook for kids, for use on an iPad. They had help from their kids Casey, centre left, and Remy.

News staff

The question reads: What year was female wrestling introduced to the Olympic Games? I scratch my head and select “1984” on the iPad. I’m met with the red X of failure. Thankfully, an eight-year-old is nearby to correct me – the answer is 2004. It’s an electronic book written and designed for kids, but apparently adults have plenty to learn from a guide to the 2012 London Olympics. It was created by a Saanich husband-and-wife team who have crossed the threshold from magazine publishing to a digital-only book designed for the Apple iPad. The interactive, colourful and photo-heavy London 2012 Olympics: The Kids Only Guide allows kids (and adults) to explore Summer Olympic and Paralympic sports, the London venues, trivia and history of the Games using a medium that is becoming more popular and widespread each day. “With the Olympics coming, it seemed like a good fit. We had a good experience writing nonfiction for kids and it seemed like

a fun project to do,” said David Garrison, who created the guide with wife, Shannon Hunt. “Since we weren’t going to London, (the book) was a way for us to get excited about getting involved,” Hunt said. Garrison designed the pages and hunted down photographs, while Hunt researched and wrote the e-book over the past few months. The project offered a welcome distraction from the sudden and bitter end to two magazines they created. Until January, the duo had published kids’ science magazines Yes Mag and Know Mag, which had a combined 25,000 circulation, mostly in Canada. Yes Mag launched in 1996 and Know in

2006, and in 2009 Garrison and Hunt sold their Saanich-based publishing company to a Montreal firm, Mad Science Group. Both stayed on as employees. “The idea was to help us grow and expand. That didn’t happen,” Garrison said. “They decided to close the magazines. It came as a complete surprise.” The pair saw shifting to an e-book as an opportunity to learn a new publishing technology, while gauging the market for youth non-fiction e-books. “Magazines are limited by their pages. This medium allows quizzes, interactive maps of the whole Olympic park,” Hunt said. “The topic lends itself to (the iPad). It’s fluid (with) lots of movement, which the Olympics is all about.” Daughter Casey, 11, and son Remy, 8, were key behind-thescenes players as a focus group and illustrators. Both appear in the book, notably Casey with champion triathlete Simon Whitfield – “fingers crossed for Simon,” Hunt noted. “We’re big Simon fans.” Search for London 2012 Olympics: The Kids Only Guide in the Apple Store through iTunes.

Philanthropy Smart & Caring Kicks Off

The Victoria Foundation & Black Press Working Together – how philanthropy shapes our community

with Victoria Foundation and Governor General There were kicks, hits, tosses and high-fives July 19 as the Victoria Foundation launched its Smart & Caring Community Fund with the help of the Governor General of Canada. The flurry of physical activity took place because one of the initiatives the $200,000 matching fund will support is a physical literacy program for young children. Program participants demonstrated activities for His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston and a crowd of more than 400 people at the Pacific Institute for

“[It] is a great way to support children, to help them battle inactivity and gain confidence. In turn, they might be inspired to help others throughout their lives, building on the kindness that they were shown early on. And who knows what they will think of to transform our communities in the future? And when this happens across the country, a better Canada is the result.” – His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston

Sport Excellence. Victoria’s fund is the first in a national Smart & Caring initiative of Community Foundations of Canada. Inspiration came from His Excellency in an address to the organization last year where he called on Canada’s community foundations to help develop a smarter and more caring Canada to celebrate the nation’s 150th anniversary in 2017.

His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston presented Caring Canadian Awards to 10 B.C. residents. The Award recognizes individuals who volunteer their time to help others and to build a smarter and more caring nation.

for North America’s biggest Jaguar Show When John Gordon graduated from high school in 1954, the hottest car on the road was the Jaguar XK120. It was his dream to own one of these cars some day. ALYN EDWARDS The XK120 was CLASSIC launched in roadster RIDES form at the 1948 London Motor Show as a test bed and show car for the new Jaguar XK engine. It caused a sensation which persuaded Jaguar founder and designer William Lyons to put it into production. The 120 in its name referred to its 120 mph (193 kph) top speed which made the XK120 the world’s fastest standard production car. In 1954, Tim Matson purchased a drop head (convertible) coupe for his wife at Plimley Motors in Victoria. The convertible with roll up windows was a very new version of the Jaguar XK120. Matson, whose father had been prominent in Victoria business circles in the 1930s, would buy the latest exotic cars and keep them for only a short period of time before seeking another. His trade-in vehicles found on used car lots were legendary in Victoria. After the Jaguar XK120 was traded off, it went through a series of owners including a 15-year-old who got it cheap after it had sat on the Naden Naval Base parking lot for months and was totally waterlogged. In a father and son project, it was cleaned up, fixed up and brought

up to running condition enabling the son, now 16, to take his driver’s licence test in it and drive it to high school. It was a well used car when John Gordon, now a chartered accountant with a young family, bought it in 1969 for $850. He patched up the torn seats and top and used it as his daily driver for 15 years. John still takes great pleasure in driving his car that was brought back to new condition by Jim Walters of Bristol Motors. These days he drives his car to

He has driven the car more than 50,000 trouble-free kilometres since the restoration. Fellow Jaguar Car Club of Victoria member and chair of Jaguars on

the Island 2012, Merritt Chisholm, wanted an old Jaguar sports car that would have modern components for drivability and safety. He was intrigued by the pre-war Jaguar SS100 sports cars originally designed by William Lyons in 1935. Although only 308 were produced, the SS100 set the stage for the legendary Jaguar sports cars to come. Roger Williams, who operates Merritt Chisholm’s custom built pre-war Jaguar SS100 is a visually exact copy of the original designed in 1935 of which only 308 were built

Suffolk Jaguar in England, uses molds from an original SS100 to reproduce visually exact copies of the Jaguar SS100 in steel reinforced fiberglass. Only 200 of these reproductions have been manufactured to date. Merritt Chisholm decided to build the first one in Canada. He enlisted the expertise of Alan Petrie, a Jaguar and Rolls Royce-trained mechanic who operates Sussex Automotive in Parksville. He used a 1976 Jaguar XJ6 donor car for mechanical components and turned the two pallets of parts shipped from England into rolling art. The build took 600 hours to complete. The stunning reproduction Jaguar SS100 was awarded a full 100 points at the Jaguars on the Island 2011 Concours d’Elegance. The Jaguar Car Club of Victoria is again hosting its annual fundraising event, Jaguars on the Island 2012, the largest such event in North America. This year, the classic Jaguar XJS will be featured and all Jaguar models manufactured from 1940 to the present will be represented. As well, the Jaguar SS100 will be displayed along with the award winning Jaguar XKE and JaguarXK120. More than 150 originals and restored Jaguars from California, Oregon, Washington, Alberta and British Columbia will be welcomed on the field at Oak Bay’s Windsor Park on July 28. The highlight of the meet will be the Concours d’Elegance, where more than 40 of the attending Jaguars will be judged under the rules of the Jaguar Clubs of North America. Jaguars on the Island 2012 is a charity event with net proceeds being donated to the Victoria Hospice Foundation. For more information go to www.jaguarcarclub.ca

Chevrolet and Silvuni mapped the design language of car models and shoe types, reflecting a person’s personality and characteristics: Shoe Style: Flip-flop – wide open stance, accentuated by strong, clean body sides free of cladding. Car: Chevrolet Spark urban city car Owner’s Footprint: Laid back, open toed and not traditional. Challenges convention and open to new experiences. Never sure what will happen tomorrow but sees every experience as fun and functional. Shoe Style: Ballet Slippers/Pumps – Aggressive looking front, compact taut side panels and a rising shoulder line Car: Chevrolet Sonic Owner’s Footprint: Comfortable in all environments, sweet and dependable person who is also kind and considerate. Prefers a lifestyle free of frills.

Fashion and Cars:

The Matching of Soles and Souls Shoe design analyst explores shared ‘language’ between shoes and cars footwear, Italian writer and shoe design analyst Andrea Silvuni believes you can learn a lot about a person’s character from the shoes on their feet and their choice of wheels. Every shoe and car can provide a window into secrets of personality. Choice of colour, style and other design details of cars and shoes can say a lot about a person. Urban city cars, like the Chevrolet Spark, draw on inspiration of everything from open-toed flip flops to motorcycles and are driven by unconventional owners open to new experiences

METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Shoe collections for this year’s spring season drew heavy influence from the glamour and opulence of 1950s hot wheels. Oozing sex appeal and status for men and women alike, the legendary chrome-finned Chevrolet Bel Air inspired summer clothing and footwear collections in Italy and elsewhere. Even notso-fashionable, yet practical, shoe categories draw design inspiration from automotive technologies. After spending years studying people’s relationship with

and adventures. Striking design elements of ballet pumps can be found in Chevrolet’s global small car – the Sonic – with an aggressive-looking front, compact taut side panels and a rising shoulder line, appealing to multiple markets from Europe to the United States and the Far East. With the explosion of the muscular multipurpose crossover vehicles, designers have adopted a bolder look with a low roofline and high sweeping waist, incorporating sportswear-inspired interior features to meet the exact demands of cross-trainers and adventure-pursuing families.

Shoe Style: Wedge-Heeled Shoes/Platforms – Concave shoulder lines, short overhangs at the rear with a dynamic stance Car: Chevrolet Cruze Owner’s Footprint: Stylish and sure-footed with logical solutions to any problem. No nonsense in relationships; values reliability and trust. A social butterfly. Shoe Style: Brogue – Expressive design with a wide, athletic stance Car: Chevrolet Malibu Owner’s Footprint: Conservative, reliable, trusting and incredibly calm under pressure. An ambitious, stylish and bright person. Also sophisticated and detailed, carrying an air of achievement. Shoe Style: Cross trainers – Sharply sculptured athletic stance with angular shapes that emphasize sporting intent, with a sleek, rising shoulder line Car: Chevrolet Equinox Owner’s Footprint: Athletic, assertive and a flexible leader quick on his or her feet. Gets things done and feels powerful as a result. Shoe Style: Super-high heeled stilettos – Low-slung V-shaped nose and aggressive ready-to-pounce stance Car: Chevrolet Camaro or Corvette Owner’s Footprint: Sexy, confident with a wild streak. Knows where sex appeal can get them.

Ford has announced the range of its C-MAX Energi is expected to reach 550 miles.

Ford C-MAX Energi expected to increase plug-in hybrid range METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

The new Ford C-MAX Energi is expected to achieve more than 20 miles of electric-only range and a 550-mile overall range. With a maximum electriconly speed projected to top that of Prius plug-in, C-MAX Energi drivers might be able to reach wherever they’re going a little faster, too. Topping it off, C-MAX Energi delivers fuel economy that is the equivalent of (US) 95 mpg equivalent (MPGe) combined city/highway. C-MAX Energi is part of Ford’s

first dedicated line of hybrid vehicles in North America and will soon be available for order at Ford’s certified electric-vehicle dealerships. C-MAX Energi operates just like a traditional hybrid with two key differences – owners must plug in the vehicle using its charge port and C-MAX Energi has a larger battery pack. Already available for order is C-MAX Hybrid – expected to be North America’s most affordable hybrid utility vehicle. C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi figure prominently in Ford’s rollout of five electrified vehicles this year.

STOP HAIR LOSS

Dr. C. Hammoud, Ph.D. recommends: To reduce or stop hair loss for men and women

The new model will be called ‘K3’ in the Korean market.

Dynamic new look for Kia’s popular Cerato (Forte) Completely redesigned compact sedan will be longer, lower and wider METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Kia Motors will introduce the next generation Cerato compact sedan later this year in its home market of Korea under a new name – ‘K3’ (domestic market only). Also known as Forte in some countries, the Cerato was Kia’s global bestseller in 2011 with more than 445,000 units delivered. While creating the latest model, Kia’s designers and engineers focused on giving the all-new Cerato futuristic and dynamic styling, with a more spacious cabin. After going on sale in Korea, the all-new Cerato sedan will appear at Kia dealerships in many overseas markets during the first quarter of 2013, to be followed by five-door hatchback and two-door coupe variants.

SINCE 2005

WISE BUYERS READ THE LEGAL COPY: Vehicle(s) may be shown with optional equipment. Dealer may sell or lease for less. Limited time offers. Offers may be cancelled at any time without notice. Dealer order or transfer may be required as inventory may vary by dealer. See your Ford Dealer for complete details or call the Ford Customer Relationship Centre at 1-800-565-3673. ‡Ford Employee Pricing (“Employee Pricing”) is available from June 14, 2012 to August 31, 2012 (the “Program Period”), on the purchase or lease of most new 2012/2013 Ford vehicles (excluding all chassis cab and cutaway body models, F-150 Raptor, Medium Trucks, Mustang Boss 302, and 2013 Shelby GT500). Employee Pricing refers to A-Plan pricing ordinarily available to Ford of Canada employees (excluding any CAW-negotiated programs). The new vehicle must be delivered or factory-ordered during the Program Period from your participating Ford Dealer. This offer can be used in conjunction with most retail consumer offers made available by Ford at either the time of factory order or delivery, but not both. Employee Pricing is not combinable with CPA, GPC, CFIP, Daily Rental Allowance and A/X/Z/D/F-Plan programs. ‡‡No purchase necessary. For full contest rules, eligible vehicle criteria, and to enter as a Ford owner, visit www.ford.ca/shareourpridecontest (follow the entry path applicable to you, complete all mandatory fields and click on ‘submit’) or visit your local Ford Dealer for details. Open only to residents of Canada who have reached the age of majority, possess a valid graduated level provincially issued driver’s license, and are owners of Ford branded vehicles (excluding fleet customers and all Lincoln and Mercury models). Eligible vehicle criteria includes requirement that it be properly registered in Canada in the contest entrant’s name (matching vehicle ownership), and properly registered/ plated and insured. Non-Ford owners can enter by mailing an original 100 word essay on “what they like about Ford”, with their full name, full mailing address, email, daytime phone number (with area code) to: Vanessa Richard, Pareto Corp., 1 Concorde Gate, Suite 200, Toronto, ON, M3C 4G4. Contest closes at 11:59pm (PST) on the last day of the 2012 Ford Employee Pricing campaign which will be no earlier than August 31, 2012. Limit of 1 entry per person. Up to 8 prizes available to be won in Canada in 3 possible prize categories, each worth up to CAD$50,000.

2013 Subaru Outback:

Redesigned styling plus increased power and efficiency METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

With more modifications than a typical model year change, the 2013 Subaru Outback has undergone an extensive facelift with revised styling, chassis enhancements to improve ride quality, new amenities and audio capabilities as well as the new EyeSight Driver Assist system. As the adventure-ready SUV alternative, the Subaru Outback provides crisp car-like handling with the versatility of an SUV. Standard Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive distinguishes Outback from crossover competitors, which generally offer all-wheel-drive at an additional cost. In addition its 220 mm of ground clearance is higher than even many large SUVs and crossovers, while still maintaining a low step-in height. Body roll has also been reduced by up to 40 per cent. Under the hood, 2013 Outback 2.5i Convenience models debut a new double-overhead camshaft 2.5-litre SUBARU BOXER engine for increased performance and fuel efficiency. This new engine

produces 173 hp and 174 lb/ft of torque, as compared to 170 hp and 170 lb/ft from the outgoing model. The 2013 Outback 3.6R continues to be offered with a 256-hp 3.6-litre six-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine and five-speed Electronic Direct Control Automatic Transmission with Manual Mode (5EAT). A downshift-blipping feature enhances its sporty feel when using the paddle shift controls. For 2013, the Outback 2.5i Convenience offers a choice between a standard 6-speed manual transmission that’s been redesigned for 2013 as well as the second-generation Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission), which offers more responsive and quieter operation compared to the transmission it replaces. Models equipped with the Lineartronic CVT will see fuel efficiency of 6.5L/100 km on the highway and 8.6L/100 km in the city. Models equipped with a sixspeed manual transmission will see fuel efficiency of 7.0L/100 km on the highway and 9.8L/100 km in the city.
