South-end home riddled with bullets

Nanaimo has a multi-million dollar shortfall in infrastructure funding, but city staff are working to build a rainy-day fund to ensure future repairs and replacements can be met. Council also passed a resolution Monday to ask the federal government for continued long-term financial support for infrastructure, nudged by the pending March 2014 expiration of the federal Build Canada Plan. Ottawa invests about $2 billion annually in municipal infrastructure funding nationwide. Since 2007, Nanaimo has received about $40 million, including $17.8 million for the water treatment facility and $7.7 million from gas tax revenues for Reservoir No. 1. But that new infrastructure, along with Nanaimo’s $1.9 billion in existing infrastructure assets, will need to be maintained. And that money will have to come from taxpayers. “Some people have used the analogy of buying a brand new, high-end expensive car and not servicing it and the thing ends up in the junkyard,” said Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan, who estimated the city’s infrastructure deficit is at least $15 million. “A little bit of maintenance would have done a lot, but trying to put that money aside is a bit of a challenge. People keep saying cut this or cut that but man oh man, when it comes to things like infrastructure there are major concerns.” ◆ See ‘ASSET’ /15

Police are investigating an incident of shots fired at a home in south Nanaimo, but the residents themselves are keeping quiet. The shooting happened shortly before 4 a.m. Wednesday when police received a 911 call about gunfire heard in the south end of Nicol Street. Police were unable to determine exactly where the shots originated, but were tipped off to a home in the 600 block of Nicol Street that was hit by gunfire. Mounties found multiple bullet holes in the home’s exterior door and more bullet holes inside the house. Seven rounds were fired into the door of a basement suite at 621 Nicol Street, near the Needham Street intersection. The bullet strikes, circled in black grease pen with police forensic scale markers stuck on the door next to each hole, were clearly visible from a service alley that runs between Nicol and Haliburton streets. A man going in and out of the suite who appeared to be a resident refused comment. A neighbour, who would identify himself only as Lance and owns a home two doors down from where the shooting took place, said he was not awakened by the commotion. “In the last 15 years, it’s been a nightmare through here,” Lance said, referring to drug trafficking and sex trade in the alley. ◆ See ‘RESIDENTS’ /4

Man facing charges for using shotgun to threaten co-worker

city scene

City on hook for new phones And you thought your phone costs were expensive. The City of Nanaimo is installing a new phone system at its public works yard – at a cost of $75,000 – which could lead to further deployment of the system at all city buildings, for an additional $225,000. A city report indicates the current phone system used at 14 separate facilities is nearing the end of its useful life, with 16 to 20 years of service. Most of the equipment is out of production, including phones at city hall and fire services, which use Nortel phones. Nortel no longer exists. Mobile and smartphones were considered, but were deemed too expensive. Money for city-wide deployment would be funded from the IT computer reserve.

Rent a wreck

Firefighter Dan Multari stretches caution tape to create a partition between patrons and shattered glass following a collision at the Budget Car and Truck Rentals building on Terminal Avenue Thursday. A parked car smashed through the building’s front windows when it was hit from behind by a Ford Expedition being driven across the business’s parking lot. Firefighters at the scene said the woman driving the SUV was taken to hospital to be treated for a leg injury. There were no other injuries and the cause of the crash was undetermined.

A Nanaimo man faces charges after he allegedly brought a shotgun to work and threatened a fellow employee. The incident happened at a construction site near Country Club Centre Wednesday shortly before 1 p.m. when a man phoned police saying he had been threatened by a coworker with a shotgun. When police arrived the suspect had left in his truck, but investigators tracked him down to another worksite in Coombs. The suspect was arrested without incident several hours later with help from Oceanside RCMP. Police found the shotgun allegedly used in the threat in the suspect’s truck. The firearm had a trigger lock on it preventing its use. Mounties also found two more authorized firearms in the suspect’s home. “This is allegedly a situation of conflict in the workplace that should have been dealt with in another manner,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. “Regardless of the fact that there was a trigger guard on it and it wasn’t loaded, it’s the presumption that he has a firearm and to others it would seem like he is prepared to use it. This is totally inappropriate and as a result, he faces two Criminal Code charges.” Dean Charles Sumner, 44, appeared in Nanaimo provincial court Thursday charged with possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace and uttering death threats. He was released and will make his next court appearance Aug. 21.

Walk aims to improve water conditions for Kenyan villagers BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Children in developing countries can spend hours walking long distances just to collect water for their families. A public event organized by Vancouver Island University’s Free the Children group aims to walk the walk so these children don’t have to. The Water Walk takes place Aug. 4 starting at Country Club Centre. Organizer Dominique Saab said the event aims to raise awareness and money to build a community well next to a school in Kenya to allow girls, who are often responsible for gathering water for their families, to go to school. “The idea is that girls can go to school and bring back water for their families,” she said. “Usually the water source is real-

ly far away and it’s dirty.” The well reduces the spread of water-borne diseases, as in many developing countries, the same water source that is used to collect drinking water is often also used as a dumping ground for human and animal waste. Saab does not plan on making Water Walk participants carry the heavy load that some children in developing nations bear several times each day; instead,

she encourages people to collect pledges leading up to the walk. Donations are also accepted the day of the walk, but neither donations nor pledges are needed to participate in the fun walk. “People don’t have to make a donation,” said Saab. “We would like to raise some money, but also awareness.” Registration for the walk begins at 10 a.m. in the Country Club parking lot and the walk starts at 11 a.m. The event also includes children’s activities such as face painting and sidewalk chalk. Saab said the well costs about $5,000 and the club has more than $700 towards it already, thanks to Wellington Secondary School students, who teamed up with the VIU group this year to work on Free the Children initiatives and organized their own water walk fundraiser a few months ago.

The club is also fundraising to build a school in Ecuador and so far they have about $3,000 toward the $8,500 needed for this project. Both projects are through Free the Children’s Adopt a Village campaign. Free the Children is a global network of children helping children, with more than one million youth involved in its education and development projects in 45 countries. Saab started doing fundraisers for the organization in 2007 when she was a student at Wellington and raised more than $10,000 to build a school in Kenya before she left high school. To collect pledges leading up to the walk, please e-mail Saab at dominiquesaab@shaw.ca. For more information about Free the Children, please go to www.freethechildren.com.

Residents didn’t report incident

◆ From /1 Lance said police patrols through the alley curtailed criminal activity, but recently it seems to be on the rise again, which he blames on a relatively transient population living in rental homes in the area. “It was actually really good around here for three years, or whatever, but now people just, I don’t know,” he said. “Well, you have people moving in and out. People don’t own the houses.” Several people were inside the house when police arrived, but no one appeared injured, nor had anyone in the home called police. So far, no one has turned up at Island hospitals to be treated

for gunshot wounds. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said police have responded to numerous complaints at the house ranging from distur-

City ready ALMANAC to tender Weather Green Lake sewer work The Green Lake sanitary sewer project is ready to go to tender. With drawings complete, the City of Nanaimo is ready to install a low pressure sanitary sewer system to 101 properties, some of which have failing septic tanks that may be affecting the health of nearby Green Lake. The tender includes the installation of the mains and services to property lines. Once the system is commissioned, property owners will be required by law to decommission their septic tanks and connect to the new system. Some residents have been waiting more than 30 years to be hooked up to city sewer services. The city has budgeted $3.2 million for the project, which is scheduled to be completed by January, with final road repairs to be finished next spring.

ICBC urges motorcycle caution BY CHRIS HAMLYN THE NEWS BULLETIN

With summer weather prompting more motorcyclists to take to the road, ICBC is urging all drivers to take extra caution, particularly at intersections. Following up on the release of last May’s interactive vehicle-crash maps for intersections around the province, the corporation

has added information on motorcycle crashes. The maps provide information on motorcycle incidents over the last five years, broken down by region and specific intersections. Mark Jan Vrem, ICBC spokesman, said the maps are not only good information for motorcyclists, but for all drivers on the road. “The motorcyclists, I think, are pretty careful. The big

hazard for them are other drivers,” he said. “As the weather gets warmer, there’s more riders out there and they’re very vulnerable because they’re not protected in a vehicle.” Statistics show motorcyclists are eight times more likely to be killed and 41 per cent more likely to be injured in a crash than other road users. “The maps and the data have been primarily put out for the

media, but it’s also a terrific tool for the public,” said Jan Vrem. “A driver can map out his commute to see if there’s a safer way to get to work.” The motorcycle crash maps are updated annually with 2012 numbers added next spring. For more information, please go to www.icbc.com, click on newsroom, statistics and facts, and motorcycles. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Province’s bonus-pay reform excludes B.C. Ferries BY JEFF NAGEL BLACK PRESS

A provincial reform limiting bonus payments for Crown cor-

cies with a hold back of up to 20 per cent of executives’ pay, which is released if targets are met. The province also

announced a pay freeze for Crown executives and said new senior executives will be hired at salaries 10 per cent lower than their

predecessors. Incentive pay – publicly unpopular but considered an effective tool in encouraging performance – became

a flashpoint in 2009 when it was revealed former B.C. Ferries CEO David Hahn’s bonuses and benefits doubled his pay to

more than $1 million. B.C. Ferries isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t technically a Crown corporation and is therefore exempt from the provincial rules. Canadian Taxpayers Federation spokesman Jordan Bateman called it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;poke in the eyeâ&#x20AC;? for taxpayers. Bateman said B.C. Ferries and TransLink, the Lower Mainland public transit agency similarly unaffected, should have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;moral obligationâ&#x20AC;? to voluntarily mirror the new rules. As for other Crown corporations, Bateman said much depends on whether the actual criteria set for holdback bonuses are easy or difficult to meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a positive step forward, but maybe a half step,â&#x20AC;? he said, noting 99 per cent of B.C. Hydro employees were able to meet their past targets for incentive pay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea that every person in the public service should always get a bonus for hitting targets was ridiculous.â&#x20AC;? The new policy also says executives should earn no more than 85 per cent of the CEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary. The province also intends to phase out incentive pay for other non-executive staff, although it admits it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do so in cases where such payments have been negotiated into union contracts, as is the case at ICBC. Travel will be reimbursed using the same policy as government executives and vehicle allowances where required for business will be the only perk allowed, with any others being phased out. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said the changes will reduce payouts, cut costs and set an increased tone of restraint. The holdbacks are similar to the bonus system for cabinet ministers and deputy ministers. T h e g ove r n m e n t review of Crown corporation executive pay and bonuses was announced earlier this year. Total executive compensation in B.C. fell 5.4 per cent in 2011. That reflected a paring of senior management ranks, as average compensation per executive was unchanged. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Suspects sought in Future Shop B&E

City part of cancer study PROJECT LOOKS at how genetics, environment and lifestyle might contribute to chronic diseases.

I

BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Researchers working on the country’s largest-ever cancer study are recruiting participants in Nanaimo. A temporary assessment centre opened Monday in Nanaimo North Town Centre to allow area residents to participate in the B.C. Generations Project, a long-term study that aims to explore how genetics, environment and lifestyle contribute to people developing cancer and other related chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. The study is part of the larger Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project, which is collecting health information, physical measurements and samples in five regions across Canada – B.C., Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces. To date, almost 250,000 Canadians have joined the study, including more than 24,000 people in B.C. The goal is to have 40,000 British Columbians participate. The Nanaimo assessment centre hopes to assess about 1,000 mid-Island resi-

dents. John Spinelli, B.C. Generations Project principal investigator and a scientist at the B.C. Cancer Agency, said researchers hope to follow participants for the next 50 years in an effort to identify new factors that reduce or elevate people’s risk of getting cancer so that more preventative programs can be developed. “This is a chance for ordinary British Columbians to make a lasting contribution,” he said. “You’re doing it for the future, really.” Participants are required to complete a questionnaire that includes medical history, family history of diseases, medication use, diet, physical activity, smoking and alcohol consumption and demographic information. At the centre, a series of measurements are taken, including height and weight, grip strength, bone density, body mass and blood pressure. People will be asked to go to a local lab at a later date to give a blood and urine sample and researchers also plan to distribute an additional ques-

The information collected will be linked to the cancer registry so that researchers know which participants develop cancers. Plans are to eventually link the information with Vital Statistics and Ministry of Health databases. “It’s a big project,” said Spinelli. “Fifty years is what we’re saying is the term of the study. We want people young enough that the kinds of experiences people have now will be relevant to the diseases you get later in life, but old enough that you don’t have to wait 80 years.” Nanaimo resident Paula Waatainen, 42,

Future Shop in Nanaimo is missing more than $10,000 worth of inventory following a break-in Monday. Witnesses called the Mounties about 2 a.m. saying two men were seen banging on the front window of the Country Club Centre store. The men were seen a short time later coming out of the store. One man was carrying an armload of merchandise, a duffle bag and a tire iron allegedly used to break in. They got into an older model red 1990s hatchback car and drove away toward Norwell Drive. “They ended up taking about $10,000 worth of stuff,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. “They had 15 iPads

who signed up for the study on Monday, said she’s excited to be part of something so important. “It has the potential to do so much good,” she said. “I’m a mom of three kids. You usually feel quite helpless when it comes to preventing their future diseases.” One personal benefit is that participants are given the results of the tests, Waatainen added, and she was relieved to learn that her bone density is above average for her age. The temporary assessment centre is open until Aug. 18. Of the 1,000 spaces available, Spinelli said more than half are already booked. To make an appointment, please call 1-877-6758221 or go to www. bcgenerationsproject. ca.

and a number of pay-as-you-go cellphones.” The first suspect is 5’10” to 6’ tall, medium build and wearing a black hoodie, white shirt, grey pants, white shoes, black gloves and was carrying a dark duffle bag. The second suspect is also 5’10” to 6’ tall and was wearing a grey hoodie, black shorts, white socks, white shoes, black gloves and was carrying a tire iron. O’Brien said investigators were reviewing security video and checking with other detachments on the Island to find out if there were recent similar incidents. A nyo n e w i t h i n fo r m at i o n about this incident is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-7542345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www. nanaimocrimestoppers.com. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Readiness key for sea debris Coastal authorities in B.C. have long been putting together tsunami and earthquake preparedness plans. But the need is growing greater for the three levels of government to have a definite plan in place to deal with potentially environmentally dangerous debris from last year’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan washing up on B.C. coastlines. For months items have been arriving on the western shorelines of Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii. Residents and others concerned about threats to the pristine nature of coastal areas have been doing their best to remove the material. No one knows, given the unpredictable nature of ocean currents, just how much flotsam will reach B.C. shores in the coming months and years. But enough has arrived already to inform authorities of the extent of the problem. The province is in a “fact-gathering stage” on the issue, said Environment Minister Terry Lake, who toured Haida Gwaii. His comments that any cleanup plan must be a joint effort between local, provincial and federal governments and First Nations make sense, but indicate the province is not willing to take the lead on tackling this problem. When a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in a packing crate washed up on a Haida Gwaii beach in April, and its owner, who had lost three family members and his home in the disaster, was located, it was a bittersweet story. But a 20-metre concrete and steel dock washing ashore in Oregon on June 6 was a further sign that the worst is likely yet to come. This week’s shockingly low cleanup grant of $50,000 from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, for each of the five states affected, shows how low this issue is on that government’s priority list. Hopefully our federal government does not take a similar tack by downplaying this serious issue.

most tested Olympics ever, and early indications are it will be. Regardless of the rigorous testing, it baffles me that athletes are still attempting (and many no doubt finding ways to elude detection) to cheat at their chosen sport. But, scandals and silliness aside, I will only be paying so much attention to these Olympics. My interest has waned steadily over the years, from being on the edge of the family sofa when Ben Johnson raised his arm in historic victory (only to be stripped of the title), to grudgingly watching figure skating because that’s sport a certain significant individual most wanted to see. This year, I’ve no TV on which to watch the inevitable wall-towall coverage, but I’ll likely pay attention generally online, and more specifically to a few athletes in particular – like those four from Nanaimo and a few from the Comox Valley (where I grew up). And Ryder Hesjedal, whose remarkable cycling career I’ve followed since I worked at the Goldstream Gazette in Langford and his rising star came to my attention. I was keen to follow this year’s Tour de France until the 2012 Giro d’Italia champion was forced out of the race by an unfortunate mass crash. Oh, and I’ll probably keep tabs on the mountain bikers, since that’s the sport I’m most closely associated in my own sporting pursuits. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

B.C. selling off environmental integrity on the hook for all recovery and clean up. To properly address the disaster in advance is to demand that the pipeline be insured for at least $200 billion dollars, and that, by multiple insurers so that we, the people of this province, can be confident that even the insurance companies will not use the same trick, leaving their favoured shareholders with profits as they in turn bankrupt themselves. When the cost of doing business is too great, the return on the invested dollar is not great enough and thus, there is no point to business.

To the Editor, Re: B.C. sets conditions for pipeline OK, K July 26. It seems like Christy Clark would sell off our environmental integrity and economic selfdetermination – the only detail left to decide is the price. Today’s fantasy economy will provide little or nothing for the protection of our environment. Once a disaster happens and it will, the Northern Gateway Pipeline companies will just go broke, the shareholders will walk away with the profits made prior to the disaster and we the people will be

Only when a government is willing to grant, at public cost, concessions that will insure profitability, can many of these projects like the Northern Gateway Pipeline be done. These concessions include the government, on behalf of the people, taking on the liabilities that a corporation could and would not be able to profitably afford or absorb. The responsibility of a good government, any government, is to serve and protect the people and the environmental heritage that the people have granted them custody of. Hearing all of this

To the Editor, Re: Pit bulls’ bad reputation undeserved, Letters, July 24. We need to use historical facts when describing the temperament of a breed of dog. The pit bull was developed through breeding and cross breeding right back to Roman times. It has 1,000 years of instincts that are bred into the makeup of the dog that include fearlessness, muscular stature and protective nature. Let’s look at facts, laws and insurance requirements that are only relevant to the pit bull. In some U.S. states, owners are required to carry bite insurance on this breed. In many areas on the planet, the pit bull is not allowed to be owned or bred. Many airline companies will not even transport this dog. Pit bulls are responsible for 30 per cent of deaths when it comes to bite attacks on humans. These dogs are very loyal and will protect their yard, home and family. This happy dog can turn territorial and see red if they are trigged

with an event that appears threatening. The fearless, loving animal that you talk about can and will turn into the monster that is bred into its genes. The power that these dogs have in their jaws can clamp, shake and break a child in an instant. Think you can break a cycle of 1,000 years of breeding a fighting species of dog with a bit of training and

kindness? Put it in the situation where it thinks it needs to protect you or your family. All I can say is that you should be prepared to use ammonia or a stick to pry its jaws open. And before that happens, make sure you have enough insurance. I do not trust these dogs in public places without a muzzle. Most deaths caused by these dogs happen in their own yard. If you have one of these dogs in your yard, do everyone a favour and put warning signs up or muzzle it. Insure it, muzzle it, train it and treat it with kindness. Matt James Nanaimo

Humans ignorantly destroying planet To the Editor, Re: Vandalism of trees not entirely surprising, Letters, July 24. Melody Botten declares her sympathy for the unknown tree vandal who trespassed on someone’s property and ringed the bark and Cambrian off the trees in what seems to be an attempt to get a better view.

There are many things in this world worthy of giving sympathy for, but sympathy for a tree vandal’s act is like throwing your pearls before swine. This whole obsession of having a view has caused many new neighbourhoods to be devoid of any natural beauty or shade and having a completely unobstructed view is too often more of a show of one’s status and mankind’s dominion over nature. I find the older neighbourhoods with simple houses mixed in with mature trees of all kinds much more beautiful to walk in because there is a balance with nature as it should be. If one wants a view, go for a walk and the view will be much more grand and not taken for granted. Humans are slowly destroying this planet and too often it is not for need, but for the pleasure, the convenience, the status, the thrill, and out of ignorance and we have to be on guard that self-absorbed people with an inflated sense of self-worth stop abusing nature.

HAPPY ENDINGS: Kodiak

Kodiak is doing amazingly well - as you all told old me he would! He is snoring away bbeside me, as I type. On our trip home after adopting, it quickly became apparent that he LOVES car rides. He wanted to have his head out of the window the whole way but I was a bit worried about his eyes getting irritated. Much to his annoyance, he was only allowed to stick his nose out. We have been for a walk every morning and every evening and he has been wonderful. This morning he got excited before his walk, enough so, that he grabbed the leash in his mouth and bounded around. He has met up with a few dogs and he has been very polite with them. He loves the rabbits on the property (although I think both he and the rabbits know he can’t catch them) and he even got into a full run going after one. It was a short run, albeit. He also got a little excited when he saw some deer but I could just see him thinking “Naw...too much effort!” He has met all three of our cats. We were a bit nervous because the first interaction was a growl from him and he Kodiak & family Kodiak went stock-still. The second interaction involved a bark and a bit of a lunge/jump. However, in both cases the cat had hissed at him (I’m sure they were wondering why we had brought a bear in the house) and I think he was just as frightened as they were. By this morning, everyone had let down Deluxe Boarding for Cats Ltd. their guard and Kodiak was sitting on the front porch this morning with one of the cats sitting about 4 feet from him. No Where Comfort, Health, Safety reaction from either of them. I’m keeping my fingers crossed And Your Peace of Mind but I think it will work itself out. Are Our Priority The cats have been shut in my bedroom with me at night just to make sure that there are no encounters in the dark. My daughter was so worried about Kodiak being alone that she has slept with him in the living room both nights. 3501 NewÀeld Road, Nanaimo, BC, V9S 5V6 We went to my parents for dinner this evening and I caught 250-753-8329 my Dad (Grampa?) sheepishly giving Kodiak a few pieces of www.puss-n-boots-lodge.com www. w pu puss ss-nn-boo boo ootts ts-llod odge dge.co com prime rib. That’s not going to help his upset tummy but it was so cute that I didn’t cause a fuss. I think they are going to be buddies. He has spent most of his days lying out in the grass while I garden, or napping on the kitchen floor (Yes, he was delighted to find out that we too, had a kitchen) He is always right there under foot, in the ‘drop zone’. It is early days but he is already showing us some lovely character traits - a very gentle, wise old soul. We see why you all love him so much! Oh, and he has shown no interest at all in the guinea pigs (bo2300 Bowen Road nus) but he loves rolling in horse poop (not such a bonus, but 101 - 3128 Barons Road, Nanaimo we can work with it). www.nationals2012.trialentry.com Thanks so much, Kelley 250-758-1162

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

for

CITIZENS ON PATROL in Nanaimo

Proud to Support Citizens on Patrol! BROOKS LANDING

We are a group of concerned citizens operating under the guidance of the Nanaimo RCMP and provide “eyes and ears for the RCMP and our community”. Your commitment is a minimum of 8 hours a month, and we provide specialized training. You are required to pass a criminal record check, possess a driver’s license and vehicle, and be in good physical condition. We generally work weekends and in 2 person patrol vehicles. Come and be part of dynamic group in making the greater Nanaimo area a safer place to live. The Program Citizens on Patrol began in 1985 in Nanaimo through the RCMP. Today, there are 40 COPs members of all ages and walks of life who believe in fighting crime in their community. They volunteer to provide police with extra eyes and ears on the streets of Nanaimo, Cedar, and Lantzville on weekend nights and patrol as two person teams.

The Commitment Members are expected to patrol a minimum of one-four shift per month and attend the monthly meeting where patroller news is discussed and some training takes place. They are also required to attend training sessions which happen separate from the monthly meetings and to remain in the program for a minimum of six months.

The Job COPs volunteers observe and report the activity around them. If they witness anything unusual like an assault, purse snatching, or theft from auto, they have access to police who will attend. The volunteers receive reports/information from the police prior to their shift and pay special attention to those neighbourhoods that are experiencing vandalism or break and enters or other forms of crime. Other recent patrols have focused on stolen vehicles and graffiti and COPs is always on the look out for excessive speeding, impaired driving, and unsafe driving. Volunteers have use of laptop computers and Netbooks which hold a list of all stolen vehicles at a particular time so checking a vehicle is easy.

The Training The training program consists of a classroom session to read and understand the manual and several ride-alongs with experienced members to understand protocols, safety rules, observation and surveillance techniques, and radio procedures.

The Danger The first rule of the COPs program is that all activities are conducted with the member’s safety in mind. They do not leave their vehicles and therefore do not get involved in any situation that is potentially dangerous. The COPs members use their own vehicles and easily blend into their surroundings. The Benefits Members achieve a great sense of accomplishment with the knowledge that they are making a difference in the fight against crime in their community, making their neighbourhoods safer. They meet people with similar values and community spirit who enjoy working in a team-oriented environment. Their volunteer work is interesting, unique, and different from their usual workday activities. They also learn about the role of law enforcement in Canada and have the opportunity to attend special seminars related to their Citizens on Patrol volunteer activities.

Are you… An ‘extra’ ordinary citizen who wants to do something about crime? Able to devote eight hours per month for patrolling and a meeting? Interested in assisting the police to improving our community? And you meet our requirements: 19 years of age or older no criminal record suitable character good driving skills and access to a vehicle for patrols good English verbal skills good observation skills an ability to assess on-view situations and relay details over a radio frequency to a dispatcher able to work in a structured environment. For more information… Brian Cornborough, Volunteer Coordinator Telephone: 250.758.6535 bcornborough@shaw.ca Nanaimo Citizens on Patrol website www.nanaimocops.com

Thank you to these businesses for supporting the COPs program and the work that they do in making our city a safer community. COMMUNICATION

Aspengrove School is thrilled to announce that it has been granted candidate status for the InternaƟonal Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (grades 11 and 12) as of September 1, 2012. This is the Įnal piece to oīer all three IB programmes from JK – Grade 12. Aspengrove is already authorized to oīer the PYP (Primary Years Programme) and the MYP (Middle Years Programme) and has been delivering these programmes for 9 years! Aspengrove School is now pursuing authorizaƟon as an IB World School oīering the conƟnuum of PYP, MYP and DP (see www.ibo.org.), one of only 13 schools in Canada. IB World Schools are schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, balanced, internaƟonal educaƟon that Aspengrove School believes is important for our students. EducaƟng Global CiƟzens We may live on an island but we can’t ignore the rest of the globe! Our young people represent the future. Their future looks a lot diīerent to our present. Today’s student must be educated to embrace all that the developing global economic system is creaƟng. The world has always been a compeƟƟve stage but more so today and deĮnitely in the future. What is the InternaƟonal Baccalaureate (IB) Programme? The InternaƟonal Baccalaureate (IB) Programme was established in 1968 by a group of forward thinking educators who recognized that families were being moved globally and were concerned for the standard of educaƟon available to their children in other countries. The group realized that it would be prudent to develop a programme that could be applied in any country; a programme that would prepare students well for university worldwide and that would be recognized as the best programme for preparing students as global ciƟzens. The Įrst programme – the Diploma Programme – was originally developed for students in grades 11 & 12 and intended as a high school graduaƟon credenƟal which would be recognized worldwide. This programme has grown incrementally since 1968 and is now recognized as being the best high school graduaƟon programme for preparing students for university. As a result of the success of the Diploma programme, two more programmes – the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) were developed so that all students could have the advantage of the presƟgious IB programme. Today the IB programme is oīered in 3,463 schools in 143 countries throughout the world and it conƟnues to grow. In BC, 38 schools oīer the IB programme. Nanaimo is very fortunate to have the IB programme available to its students. Aspengrove School currently oīers the PYP (JK – grade 5); MYP (grades 6-10) and coming in September 2013, we plan to implement the Diploma Programme for our grade 11 and 12 students. The strength of the IB programme is how well it prepares young people to truly embrace the philosophy of being a global ciƟzen. Students are encouraged to quesƟon informaƟon, to delve deeper in their pursuit of knowledge, all in a quest to understand how the world works and how we can make it a beƩer place. Students and teachers together explore topics through diīerent lenses but always with an internaƟonal perspecƟve. Through the Learner ProĮle, students are encouraged to embrace all aspects of study with an open-mind and a willingness to understand diīerences and perspecƟves. As the future of our world, our children deserve the best. Aspengrove School – changing the world, one student at a Ɵme! p , Grow,, Succeed Aspire,

Inbrief Asset management a priority real estate

VIREB launches website update A new website created to enhance the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real estate experience launched recently for the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board. The new website â&#x20AC;&#x201C; www.vireb.com â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was designed to deliver larger amounts of real estate information. The original VIREB website was in use virtually unchanged since its launch in 2006. The new website incorporates a broader range of information options for users not available in the older site â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as access to VIREBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social media presence and more information concerning Realtors and the impact they have in their community. Another major benefit this website has over the previous one is the development of a unique interactive open house module â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a free service open to the public 24 hours per day. Users can locate planned open house dates for specific regions on Vancouver Island as much as two weeks in advance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very excited about the launch of this new website,â&#x20AC;? said Darrell Paysen, manager of member services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to make our website the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;go to placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for real estate industry information and the launching of this new website and its companion site will provide users with an easy to use way to learn about VIREB and real estate in general.â&#x20AC;?

NEWS BULLETIN FILE

The city is working on a plan for infrastructure maintenance and replacement to avoid a potential crisis of water and sewer main breaks.

â&#x2014;&#x2020; From /1 Combined, Nanaimo owns 521 kilometres of water distribution mains, 2,875 water hydrants and 21,772 water meters for a combined asset value of $298 million. A 2010 report revealed water infrastructure alone is underfunded by $1.5 million annually. If current investment were to remain unchanged, in about 30 years Nanaimo would suffer a 197-kilometre shortfall in water main replacement, though that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for future infrastructure to accommodate a growing population. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[This plan] could be a difficult thing to sell, but sell we must,â&#x20AC;? said Ruttan. Tom Hickey, Nanaimoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of community services, said a new plan is needed to avoid a crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priorities in the strategic plan is asset management,â&#x20AC;? said Hickey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In general, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assets are on average less than halfway through their life cycle. This year, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing an update on the asset management plan that will also include facilities and land improvements while working hard to verify replacement schedules and update those on even better information.â&#x20AC;? Hickey noted, however, that much of the infrastructure built in the mid-1970s shortly after amalgamation is nearing the end of its life and will have to be replaced in the coming years.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do have a shortfall and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working to pull together an even more accurate number for all of our assets,â&#x20AC;? said Hickey. An update is expected to go before city council in late fall. Council will take its new resolution to both the Union of B.C. Municipalities and Federation of Canadian Municipalities conferences later this year to help build support for new funding programs. A 2007 FCM report indicated that nationwide, Canadian municipalities have a $123-billion infrastructure funding deficit. The federal government has indicated it will have a new plan in place prior to the expiration of the Building Canada Plan. In the meantime, FCM has launched a campaign to ensure municipal priorities are reflected in the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new plan, and that funding access is improved. Property taxes, the sole source of revenue for municipalities other than senior government grants, comprise only eight per cent of Canadian tax revenues, leaving most municipalities unable to deal with the rising cost of infrastructure maintenance on their own. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Warmer weather offers hints to winter heat-loss locations With the sudden change from cool, cloudy weather to sunny and much warmer weather, arrives a different set of challenges. It is this time of the year that we discover how energy-efficient our homes and businesses are â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not because of our utility bills but because of how (un) comfortable we feel. Those clear single- or even double-pane windows that face the afternoon sun radiate a ton of solar heat into our homes and offices, informing us to how much heat they (and the other windows) also allow to escape in the heating seasons. That heat radiating down

All of these clues are free tips, courtesy of the warm weather. Now we know what needs attention. In my experience, there are three motivations to making energy upgrades: the rapidly rising cost of energy; comfort, comfort, comfort; and hearing positive comments from trusted friends, family or others after they successfully made upgrades. Saving the planet is a nice bonus. Another rising motivator is the fact that the cost of heating and cooling buildings is increasingly altering the selling price and sell-ability.

The energy rating now appears on all MLS home listing forms. The higher the number, the lower the operating costs are likely to be. The lower the costs, the more attractive it is to a potential buyer. In the future all homes will have to be rated before they are sold. Thus it is a good idea to have it rated now, while the cost is subsidized and government incentives are available. What a cool idea. â&#x2014;&#x2020; Ian Gartshore chairs the non-profit Energy Solutions for Vancouver Island.

Can do dryer for an additional $30.00 Forced air refrigerators or built-in refrigeration units need to have their condenser coils cleaned at least twice a year. In fact, if you have pets you may want to clean them even more than that! The reason is because as dust and dander gathers in and around the coils, it prevents the condenser from working properly. The refrigerator is now working twice as hard to keep your food cold, and as such, your electric bill is paying the price - or rather, you are! This will shorten the life of your fridge dramatically.

Great home designs begin with great communication - let’s talk!

Wee bbel believe e ieve that good home design begins with an understanding of how people el live in their homes. Whether for entry level or move up home buyers, new home builders are offering plans and designs that meet the needs of today’s consumers, using modern technology to build homes that are attractive, highly functional and feel good to live in. New home buyers have a tremendous choice in style and layout to suit all personal preferences and budgets. Often, a builder’s standard designs are just a starting point. Many builders will customize a home to suit your individual needs. Find out early on how much flexibility there is in the design and at what cost. Then you can make informed decisions about a particular design that may interest you. Here are some of the design characteristics that you can expect to

- A new home means well-designed spaces that take full advantage of the available square footage. With the right design, every home, large or small, can be spacious and comfortable. Open Layouts s - Common in today’s new homes are bright, open areas that blend rooms with different functions into each other. Many builders and homebuyers opt for the great room - a large informal space for living, working, eating and relaxing. Partial walls, bulkheads, lighting and floor treatment help to define and add character to individual areas within this space. Depending on the size of the home, the `great room’ may replace or complement formal living and dining rooms.

Flexible Space e - New home layouts are designed to accommodate changing household needs over time. A den can become an extra bedroom or a nursery. Basement rooms can be converted to a home office or a family entertainment area. Build adaptability for life’s changes right into the home at the time of construction, look ahead to accommodate special health and mobility needs for instance, wide doorways and reinforced bathroom walls for grab bars.

Couverdon Real Estate is working with communities & partners to create unparalleled opportunities on Vancouver Island.

Built In Convenience e - Living in a new home is easy, by design. Look for direct access from the garage to the kitchen on hard surface flooring, mudrooms with large closets and a ground or second floor laundry room. And check out details such as extra large pantries, lots of storage space and built in recycling bins.

www.couverdon.com Couverdon is the Real Estate Business of Timberwest Forest Corp.

Kitchens That Have It Alll - With today’s open layouts, the quality and the finishing details of a new kitchen are done with careful attention to matching or complementing the surrounding spaces. Look for well appointed, organized workspaces; attractive, separate eating areas; and great natural and built in lighting. Your home’s design is fundamental to your lifestyle. Explore your options by touring model homes, looking at builders’ plans and talking to home design professionals. Think about your daily living patterns and what works and doesn’t work where you live now. Then discuss your preferences, as well as your current and future needs with your builder, who will be able to advise you on the best design for your lifestyle.

We hear a lot about corporate social responsibility these days. Fancy words for doing business as if people mattered. And this month, the City of Nanaimo adopted its first corporate strategic plan. According to Mayor John Ruttan, this plan “restates our commit-

munities where their enterprises began and the corporate decisionmakers no longer had to come face-to-face with their clients. And when the managerial economy became the global economy, the responsibilities of corporate decision-makers to national governments disappeared. McDonald’s founder, Ray Kroc, said, “We have found out that we cannot trust some people who are nonconformists. We will make conformists out of them in a hurry. The organization cannot trust the individual. The individual must trust the organization.” Wal-Mart is endorsing a shift toward organic, the White House has an organic garden, but absolute poverty is increasing to the point that only the wealthy will be able to afford the high quality food that Nanaimo’s miners grew for themselves on their five-acre grants. When ethics and morality break the neoliberal dam, corporations will be providing better food at affordable prices. ◆ Marjorie Stewart is chairwoman of the Nanaimo Foodshare Society.

Nanoose’s Mike Mason at peak performance going into 2012 Games BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

JOHN VAN PUTTEN/BLACK PRESS

Mike Mason clears the bar at a meet in Abbotsford two seasons ago. The Olympic high jumper set a personal best this season of two metres, 31 centimetres – about seven feet, seven inches.

jump that basically lifted him to London, though he secured his spot with a second-place finish at nationals in Calgary last month. For Mason, these are new heights in a sport where centimetres matter. In Beijing he got hurt and his 2.25m didn’t get him out of the qualifying round. At those Games, it took 2.34m to medal.

Olympic high jumper raising the bar

ike Mason’s final jump of last season was 2.05 metres, or about six feet, seven inches. It sounds like a lot, but for an Olympic veteran high jumper, it wasn’t good enough. Injured and frustrated, he shut down his season. “I wasn’t expecting to have a chance to qualify for London after last year, being injured and having a pretty poor season,” he said. He was down, but not out. And having jumped before with the world watching, in Beijing in 2008, he had to keep striving for the Olympics. “For myself, and I’m sure most athletes will say, it really is huge,” Mason said. “It’s the biggest event that you can prepare for and it’s four years in between so you’ve really got to plan well and make it count.” So he recovered, and refreshed his career by going back to train with his original coach from his high school days. “It’s just a lot of training, a lot of repetition, doing the same kind of stuff in practice so it’s second nature for your body,” Mason said. “I’ve been consistently improving in practice for several months.” The 25-year-old has all his height back, and more. First he jumped two metres, 28 centimetres. Then 2.28m again. Then at a meet in Guadeloupe he leaped 2.31m, a personal best. That’s the

Maybe in London, he can raise the bar, like he’s been doing all season. “Sometimes you’re just on a little bit more than other days, and [2.31m] actually felt pretty easy, which is, I think, the way it’s supposed to feel when things are going right,” he said. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

DBL T-men start series with victory The Nanaimo DBL Timbermen got their first win of what they hope will be a championship playoff run. The city’s senior B lacrosse team defeated the Port Moody Thunder 11-8 on Wednesday at Frank Crane Arena in Game 1 of the teams’ best-of-three series. Nanaimo was down a goal going into the third period, but scored six in the final frame. Coach Mike Maughan said his team executed better in the third. “Once we got a couple quick ones, that really changed not only the momentum but the mood on the bench,” he said. Ryan Forslund led the offence with two goals and three assists, Kyle Noble had two and two and Jon Diplock also scored a pair. Matt Maughan, Rick Fields, Joey Fendick, Brad Jones and Trevor Walton scored the other goals and Gabe Sutherland finished with four assists. Ray Hodgkinson was the winning goalie, making 27 stops. GAME ON … Game 2 of the series will be played this afternoon in Coquitlam, and the rubber match, if necessary, will be Sunday (July 29) at 6 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.

Soccer players run hard all season

For fans of the beautiful game, this summer has held plenty of soccer excitement. On the local soccer scene, the Nanaimo and District Youth Association recently held it annual general meeting. A good crowd was in attendance, partly perhaps because team awards were presented. Or maybe it was that each youth player there received a free soccer ball. To start the evening, NDYSA treasurer Jack Stephens made a special presentation to acknowledge the contributions of former youth soccer president Anup Kang. Then it was my pleasure to MC the presentation of medals to the top youth teams from the past season. This week weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll review results from the various age divisions of boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; competitionâ&#x20AC;Ś League winner in the U13 boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; division was the Nanaimo Miners team.

DOING IT

FOR THE KIDS

S

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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;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. It was a big said. "It's an amazing cause, and cancer is that someone so young shouldn't have something thing growing up on to go through." the Island.â&#x20AC;? Crawford is one of two military police officers participating in this year's tour â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the other is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cpl. Sheldon Cpl. David Thompson, who works out of CFB Crawford Comox. The roster includes 14 police officers, two members of the media and two special guests. Since its inception in 1998, Tour de Rock has raised more than $16.6 million for the Canadian Cancer Society. 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. Crawford's personal fundraising goal is $12,000, although he hopes to raise more He's already managed to collect $7,000, including $4,000 from a concert at the Pacific Fleet Club in Victoria. "It's an excellent opportunity to give back and see some of the Island," he said.
