Victoria turning back clock to 1862 Ceremonies, activities this week culminate Victoria’s 150th anniversary program Daniel Palmer News staff

T

he City of Victoria is hosting its 150th birthday party tomorrow (Aug. 2) in Centennial Square by offering a window into its diverse history. The celebration, happening from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., includes a public ceremony kicked off by Mayor Dean Fortin, historical exhibits, music, refreshments, and period-dressed performers, who will transport visitors back to 1862. “I think it’s a very significant day,” said Victoria 150 co-ordinator Alice Bacon. “It provides people with the opportunity to reflect on how far we’ve come and where we’re headed.” Back in 1862, the city’s downtown was still a work in progress and Vancouver Island remained a British colony. The grounds of Centennial Square have their own story. They housed dozens of Chinese market gardens 150 years ago, when entrepreneurial gardeners grew their own vegetables and went door-to-door selling their goods. “A vegetable peddler with a bamboo pole was a very common sight in those days,” said John Adams, who hosts several historical walking tours of downtown Victoria. At the time of incorporation, the land that is now Centennial Square was owned by Kwong Lee & Co., a Chinese merchant house that rivaled the Hudson’s Bay Company as far north in

British Columbia as Barkerville. “Centennial Square itself would have been mostly Chinese,” Adams said, adding the sparse wooden buildings would have made a much more quaint cityscape. Victoria’s first mayor, Thomas Harris, was elected soon after incorporation by a show of hands. The 300-pound butcher, who remained

mayor until 1865, built a house at the corner of Government Street and Bastion Square, where the Irish Times pub currently stands. In addition to Thursday’s celebration, organizers are hoping the B.C. Day holiday will bring out the crowds. On Monday (Aug. 6) from noon until 9 p.m., enjoy an eclectic mix of live music and hands-on activities for children at

VICTORIA NEWS - Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Honing in on the Twitterverse New interactive social media chat program appears to be gaining a foothold Daniel Palmer News staff

Three community organizers plan on turning their social media experiment into a full-length documentary. Four months ago, Kyle Schembri, Mat Wright and Susan Jones began a weekly Twitter-based discussion on Greater Victoria issues. “We wanted to keep it open and really informal,” Schembri said. “It was completely an experiment. We had no idea what would happen.” Under the hashtag #YYJchat, the Twitter conversation has quickly grown into an open platform hub for town hall-like discussions. They take place every Tuesday from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. and feature a well-known guest responding to questions from organizers and the public. Topics range from politics and regional amalgamation to the best place to buy a bottle of wine. “There’s an informal accountability for these guests to answer questions,” Schembri said. “I wouldn’t normally get to pose questions to these decision-makers, but with #YYJchat, I can do that.” The online discussions are curated and posted each week on VictoriaWave.ca, the brainchild of Schembri and Wright. The duo began producing podcasts last March, but it wasn’t until Jones suggested they utilize Twitter to

host sometime in the next month, at her request. But don’t be fooled by the political slant. #YYJchat’s organizers are open to any relevant topic and every willing participant. “The good thing about Twitter is anybody can come on board,” Schembri said. “My mom hopped on board last week and started texting me, asking why I wasn’t posting. And she doesn’t even use Twitter.” Across Canada, 52 per cent of people use Facebook while 18 per cent are on Twitter.

Shipyards zoning concessions contemplated United Engineering building derelict, replacement location in question

Representatives from about 25 local food businesses came out last week (July 25) to a meeting at Canoe Brewpub to hear about renting a space in the new Victoria Downtown Public Market. After signing a deal with Townline to occupy an 18,000-square-foot space in the rehabilitated Hudson building, the market aims to launch in the spring of 2013, said market society chair Philippe Lucas. The society has been looking for a permanent home for many months and has held a temporary market in Market Square in the meantime. It will now put together a five-year management plan for the Hudson building. The new market will have an industrial look, with poured concrete floors, Lucas said. It will have 10 to 12 fulltime stalls, 15 rotating stands and an outdoor area for tables, during special seasons such as Christmas. Also in the space will be a community kitchen, rentable for cooking classes and other vendor demonstrations. The market, Lucas said, “is a great example of the intersection between the shop-local and the eat-local movement.” For those interested in renting a space, email Lucas at philippe@ victoriapublicmarket.com rholmen@vicnews.com

VIHA on to Plan B after Lodge plans were defeated

Roszan Holmen News staff

Four years since adopting design guidelines for the industrial harbourfront, the city is taking steps to break its own rules in order to accommodate some very special circumstances. Ralmax Group of Properties proposes building a larger version of its United Engineering facility – 21 metres high – on the north end of its Point Hope Shipyards site, but needs council approval for a height variance. Currently, the property’s height restrictions vary between three and 19 metres, depending on proximity to the water. The new building could also be placed anywhere within a 137-metre envelope. Ralmax leases its land from the city, which took the unusual step of putting forward the rezoning application. The idea is “to provide the greatest maximum potential for different choices to be made,” said Coun. Marianne Alto. Alto sits on the planning and land-use committee, which last week voted to recommend that council approve the variance.

New market sees interest from growers

Don Denton/News staff

The waterfront lands stretching from the Johnson Street Bridge (out of view on left) to the Point Hope Shipyard have been the topic of discussions between the City of Victoria and Ralmax Group. The company was looking at the site as a spot to rebuild its United Engineering facility (far right), until the city determined the land would be needed during construction of the new bridge. The current United Engineering building is derelict and needs to be replaced within two years, said Ralmax president and CEO Ian Maxwell. The operation also needs to be relocated, because its current location interferes with Point Hope’s business. Originally, Maxwell planned to build a new facility south of the current location, toward the Johnson Street Bridge. He spent $1 million in planning on the site, after exercising an option to lease 203 Harbour Rd. from the city. As the city’s bridge replacement plans advanced, however, the city determined the need to use most of this lot during the construction phase of the bridge, estimated to

last until 2016. “The city suggested we look at the north end of the site,” said Ralmax spokesperson Kathi Springer. “So Ralmax said, ‘yes, absolutely, we can take a look at that, but we’re not going to spend all the money up front to do all the necessary planning … until we have that property (properly) zoned.’” The city’s application to relax zoning could be seen as a form of compensation to Ralmax for the loss of use of 203 Harbour Rd. during bridge construction, Alto said. “My view would be that we’re being extra accommodating,” she said, “because it gives them the best potential to make money. And we want them to make money …

which then creates more money for the city and more employment.” Any concessions by the city, however, might not prove enough. Feasibility studies could reveal the north end of the property will be unable to accommodate a new building. If that happens, “we’re going to have to make some very critical decisions on what we’re doing with United Engineering,” Maxwell said. He is still finalizing the lease for 203 Harbour Rd., with a deadline of Aug. 1. “I guess we’ll have to sit down and say ‘OK, what’s the date we can actually use the property?’” rholmen@vicnews.com

The B.C. Care Providers Association wants the Vancouver Island Health Authority to consider other options for long-term senior care beds in the region, in the wake of rejected plans to replace Oak Bay Lodge on its current site. “Capital Region seniors have waited too long for new long-term care beds,” association CEO Ed Helfrich wrote in a statement last month. “VIHA should initiate a new public re-tender as soon as possible.” VIHA spokesperson Shannon Marshall said it could take several months before a final request for proposals is developed. “We’re moving ahead with that,” she said. “We, too, would love to have it issued sooner rather than later, but it is a very, very complex process. We need to take time to ensure that (it’s done) with solid due process.” reporter@vicnews.com

Greater Victoria transit users broke ridership records for the second consecutive year, despite a cutback in service hours. B.C. Transit recorded 25.35 million trips throughout the Capital Region for the year ending March 31, a modest increase of 0.4 per cent over 2010-11 numbers. “We’re seeing a long-term commitment from our passengers,” said Transit spokeswoman Meribeth Burton. “Monthly bus passes are up, single tickets are up, U-Pass usage is also up substantially.” In 2010-11, Capital Region ridership was 43 per cent higher than in areas with similar-sized transit systems, according to the most recent

numbers provided by the Canadian Urban Transit Association. Those same numbers show Victoria transit users get comparably good value for their money. Operating costs for each Greater Victoria passenger were $3, compared to an average of $3.55 in other regions. Ridership accounts for approximately 30 per cent of revenue for the transit authority. The remainder is comprised of provincial funding (34 per cent), property tax (21 per cent) and fuel tax (11 per cent) supplements. Smaller amounts are also derived from the B.C. Bus Pass program and advertising. Burton said ridership will continue to grow as long as local governments commit to building high-occupancy vehicle lanes and other transit efficiencies. “The more we can make it attractive, the more ridership will grow with us,” she said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

New bridge cost known in January But council not informed for two months afterward Roszan Holmen News staff

When news broke on March 13 that the Johnson Street Bridge replacement project had ballooned from $77 million to $92.8 million, critics of the project wondered how long staff were aware of the problem. Documents obtained by the News through the Freedom of Information and Privacy Protection Act reveal City of Victoria staff had a good sense for the escalation by Jan 6. Assistant finance director Susanne Thompson advised in a memo that it was “critical” to inform council as soon as possible. She confirmed $8.4 million in additional costs and said a preliminary review of the data suggested more unconfirmed costs would bring the revised budget estimate to $91.25 million. On Jan. 12 Thompson elaborated her findings in an email to project director Mike Lai and advisor Bill Larkin. In it, she pinpointed Feb. 16 as a likely date to present the information to council. “In order to meet that deadline, all additional costs and

related decisions (procurement, legal, insurance) will have to be clarified and decisions made by the end of next week – Jan. 20,” she wrote. But instead of advising council at the first available date, staff waited more than two months to present the report. Both council and the public learned of the $15.8-million cost escalation days after the federal government announced a $16.5million grant for the Johnson Street Bridge. Coun. Lisa Helps speculates the timing may have been strategic, relating to the funding announcement. If so, she said, “that should worry us.” “That actually may well be a strategically good decision to make, but that is council’s prerogative to make that decision,” Helps said. Part of the reason for the delay is explained in a Jan. 18 email from finance director Brenda Warner to Lai. “In discussions with Gail (Stephens, city manager), she is clear that she only wants to go to council once for a budget amendment for this project, so I would encourage you to identify any other additional resources you need to manage this project, and to ensure that appropriate levels of contingency are included,” Warner wrote. The process of pinning down

exact budget requirements took longer than desired. Well into the first half of March, many emails were sent between the bridge and finance departments seeking clarity on accounting procedures and other budgeting refinements. As late as March 7, the project estimate was $95 million. Part of the problem in pinning down a correct estimate could be attributed to a lack of expertise. “From a Finance perspective it is imperative that someone with high-level financial experience is dedicated to this project to assist the Project Manager,” Thompson wrote in her Jan. 12 email. Director of communications Katie Josephson confirmed an in-house certified general accountant has been assigned to the project. In an emailed statement, she said the delay in notifying council can be attributed to due diligence, as staff needed to confirm additional costs through a value engineering analysis. “The initial numbers were preliminary and were informed upon further extensive review,” Josephson said. “It was necessary to confirm all project related costs to ensure the accounting and estimates presented to council were accurate and current.” rholmen@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Time to move forward on deer For the past month, the Capital Regional District has been offering the public a chance to share their opinions on deer management options, through a series of online forms. The fourth instalment in the weekly survey, the deadline for which is today (Aug. 1), solicits input on capture and relocation methods and repellants. For the first three surveys, which solicited feedback on controlled public hunt, sharpshooting, administering immunocontraceptives to deer, deer-vehicle collision mitigation and public education options, a grand total of 102 responses have been received. Compare that to the thousands of responses the CRD received when it solicited general public feedback on the issue last year. The huge difference could indicate a couple of things: expecting many people to fill out online forms is unrealistic; and that the public believes the matter is now in the CRD’s hands to deal with, promptly. The vast majority of the public is not versed in the best repellent methods for discouraging deer or how best to mitigate collisions with the animals. Trying to determine whether people prefer hiring sharpshooters to pick off deer in the dark of night over a controlled public hunt is moot, since it will evoke the same emotions as previous consultations. The CRD appears to be bending over backwards to further prove that public consultation is being done, through the use of an unwieldy online survey – one that the advisory group can take or leave, according to the group’s stated criteria. Instead of playing around with optics on this issue, the CRD needs to instruct the advisory group to complete its research, avoid the distraction of further polarized suggestions, and come up with a solution. The final report, with recommendations on how and whether or not to proceed, is due in September. We trust that members of the group will have done their due diligence, taken the advice of those in the know and put forward a strategy that people, and the deer left behind, can live with.

That’s the beauty of Camp Goodtimes. As we tour the camp, and see the kids together, it’s evident that Matt misses the camaraderie and friendships formed in the weeks and over the years spent at camp. Because Matt is one of the Tour de Rock team’s guest riders this year, and we have a rigorous training schedule, this is the first time in 14 years he can’t spend at least a week there. But he, like the other 17 members of the Cops for Cancer team, knows that his commitment to ride will allow other kids with cancer to have a good time at camp. “Our day at camp was really a reminder about one of the main reasons I’m riding: for camp.

Leaders’ firm treatment stance flies in face of science Re: Treatment foes go on offensive against project (News, July 25), and CRD’s position on treatment clarified (Letters, July 25) So, why do we need a sewage plant? The scientists tell us that there is no need. Sewage biosolids are handily gobbled up by the vast and thoroughly oxygenated Salish Sea.

But what about the metals, the endocrine-mimicking drug, and other pollutants in the sewage that are affecting our marine mammals? I am sorry to say that the federal and provincial rules aren’t expansive enough to require that, and so with the proposed system, we won’t bother spending on the proven technology of pollution

source control. There is no need for the proposed system. It will provide no new benefit and it will consume funds that would far more effectively improve our environment if spent elsewhere. And speaking of money, let’s not forget that there is no costbenefit study to reflect on. But I suppose if there is, in fact, no

evidence to say that there is any benefit, why worry about costs? The proposed sewage system has no demonstrated reason to be, won’t solve the real pollution problem and will cost every one of us a very real fortune. In the face of that, our so-called leaders Geoff Young and Denise Blackwell toady up with ‘Too late folks, federal and provincial

rules are rules,’ and ‘compliance, compliance, compliance’ is the word of the day. Nothing to see here. Move along please and no thinking, questioning, or stepping out of the line at the payment wicket. Oh, and you whales over there, you can just move along, too. Kent Green Victoria

Readers respond: City expenses, bridge habitat, oil pipeline costs, cat cruelty A simple way to reduce city operations expenses Re: City seeks outside expertise for internal service review (News, July 27) The City of Victoria hopes to reduce its operations budget. One obvious place to look is at the bloated and expensive management level. The Public Bodies Report for 2011 lists 227 employees whose annual salaries exceeded $75,000. Forty of these employees are in engineering and public works, a branch which, despite being staffed with so much expensive talent, regularly seeks pricey external engineering expertise for projects such as the new bridge. Victoria has a very expensive communications department, a group which the District of Saanich seems to be able to do without. Victoria’s communications director, Katie Josephson, has progressed from a salary of $115,369 in 2009 to $148,929 in 2011, while overseeing the communications debacle of the recent spring branch pickup program. It is time for some pruning of these high-priced positions. If someone leaves, seriously review the position to see if it is even needed or can be served with a lower salary.

I would rather have a lot more of the people who do the actual work – road crews, garbage collectors, parks workers, police, fire, etc. – than still more management. Roel Hurkens Victoria

Pilings could serve as second habitat aid Re: Oyster habitat creates extra headache (News, July 27) In addition to being a home for oysters, it is conceivable that the pilings under the Craigflower Bridge could serve as a sheltered spawning ground for Pacific herring. A few years ago, the Squamish Streamkeepers Society found herring spawning on the creosote-coated pilings under the Squamish wharf terminals. However, egg mortality was high, because creosote was poisonous. Wrapping the pilings in a variety of materials has resulted in improved survival, which has contributed to a revival of herring runs. While designing the pilings of the new Craigflower Bridge for the oysters, it may be a good idea to keep in mind that they can also possibly serve as egg-laying substrate for herring. However, it may be necessary to protect the

gravid herring from the human predators who dangle hooks from above before they can be enticed to spawn under the bridge. Mei Ang Saanich

Cleanup costs should be shared proportionately Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has warned that B.C.’s efforts in seeking a larger portion of the Enbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline pie does not serve the national interest. Alberta Premier Alison Redford takes a similar position and said B.C.’s request would “fundamentally change Confederation.” B.C. Premier Christy Clark says we need more than 8.2 per cent of the tax revenue generated by the project, as B.C. would have to shoulder 100 per cent of the costs if a marine oil spill occurs, and 58 per cent of any land-based environmental damage costs. Here is a suggestion to ease the bickering: Why not have an agreement whereby all the financial benefactors involved contribute their proportionate amount, based on revenue sharing, to any damages that result from oil spills related to the pipeline or the oil it would carry?

RV LOTS FOR SALE or RENT Starting at $61,900 Westwood Lake, Nanaimo

For example, Ottawa would chip in 44 per cent and Alberta 40 per cent of any associated cleanup costs. Also, Enbridge Inc. has indicated it will pump an additional $500 million into their construction costs, in hopes that the pipes transporting the oil will become leakproof. Not good enough. Compared to the potential cleanup costs of an oil spill, $500 million is peanuts. Enbridge should post, for discussion purposes, a $10-billion bond, which would apply to cover costs attributable to any oil leaks and spillage resulting from their contribution to this project.

Reader mourns cat in animal cruelty case Re: Woman charged with animal cruelty (News, July 27) I write this with much heartbreak and sadness for the poor cat who died. I have had four cats over the years, and unfortunately, due to a combination of illness and age, three of them have passed on. I cried like a baby when I had to say my final goodbyes to each of them. I still have my beloved little diva, Olivia, and I shower her with love and attention.

My cats have never been without food, water and all the comforts of home, and have been given huge amounts of love. If they even show a sign of discomfort or illness that could be serious, I have immediately taken them to my vet. Animals are like children, they require care and love constantly. If a person cannot provide that, they should not adopt them into their home. Tamara Shiels Langford

News staff

The B.C. Information and Privacy Commissioner is slamming a law aimed at ensuring that first responders have more peace of mind for their health and safety. Elizabeth Denham says the Emergency Intervention Disclosure Act has a “serious impact on the privacy rights of individuals.” Bill 39, passed in May, allows police officers, firefighters and paramedics to seek a court order to access someone else’s medical records if the first responder has come into contact with bodily fluids. “A lot of members in the course of their duty are bitten, stuck with a hypodermic needle, they get into an altercation and there’s an exchange of blood – you yourself may be cut or the suspect may be bleeding,” said Saanich police Chief Mike Chadwick. “It’s going to be for those types of situations where … you don’t know whether they have a communicable disease like HIV, or hep C or hep B.” He acknowledged that in instances where a first responder contacts bodily fluid, the other individual typically provides relevant medical information. Bill 39 allows authorities to access the medical records of individuals who don’t co-operate.

Thank you to all of our loyal customers

Kyle Slavin/News staff

Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Ida Chong, surrounded by emergency services officials, speaks about new legislation that allows first responders to seek a court order to obtain medical records after coming into contact with someone else’s bodily fluids. Denham says that the bill will not be useful, as there are “very few instances where emergency responders contract communicable diseases.” “Government should only contemplate a privacy intrusion of this nature where there is a significant demonstrated need,” she wrote in a letter to Margaret MacDiarmid, Minister of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government. “Any initiative that limits (an individual’s right to control their bodily integrity) must strike a balance between the reasonableness of restricting an individual’s liberties with the commensurate need to infringe them. I do not see such balance within Bill 39.” At a press conference held last week at Saanich fire hall No. 1, Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Ida Chong, surrounded by 27 of the region’s first responders, championed the bill, spearheaded by

Kelowna-Lake Country Liberal MLA Norm Letnick. “There are issues of privacy that are still there, but the worst thing is that you’re exposed and you don’t know what you have,” Chong said. Denham wrote that the time it will take for a judge to make a decision will be well past the ideal “immediate post-exposure treatment” timeline. Oak Bay police Deputy Chief Kent Thom says the legislation is not meant as a privacy invasion, but to protect first responders who are just doing their jobs. “It’ll give our members more confidence in the fact that they’re a little bit better protected, and their families and the general public will be, too,” he said. “It simply puts our members in a better position when they are out there doing what is required to keep the community safe.” kslavin@saanichnews.com

Elderly dementia patient, missing for hours, drowns in Gorge Daniel Palmer News staff

The body of a 75-year-old Esquimalt man suffering from dementia was recovered from the Gorge Waterway on Saturday. Victoria police responded to a

call of a body floating in the Gorge near the Tillicum Narrows, under the Tillicum Road bridge, around 2:30 p.m. The B.C. Coroners Service identified the man as James Hay. “We still need to determine whether the individual may have

fallen and drowned, or whether he suffered from something such as a cardiac event beforehand,” said Matt Brown, Island region coroner. “The challenge is there were no witnesses.” Brown confirmed Hay suffered from dementia, and VicPD spokes-

man Mike Tucker said it was reported to be Alzheimer’s disease. The VicPD marine response unit was used to recover the body and police found nothing immediately suspicious about the man’s death. “He had gone missing hours

earlier from his residence nearby,” Tucker said. “Our speculation is that he had fallen into the Gorge.” The Coroners Service will conduct a full investigation to determine the cause of death. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Accused YouTube bike racer surrenders A Victoria man believed to have been behind the handlebars of a motorcycle seen in an online video travelling in excess of 300 km/h on the TransCanada Highway has turned himself in. Randy George Scott, 25, walked into the Kelowna RCMP detachment July 24. Saanich police had issued a warrant for his arrest earlier last month. Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen said officers made attempts to contact Scott through family members, friends, associates and social media. Scott was scheduled to appear in court in Kelowna last Wednesday. He faces one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. Scott’s mother, the bike’s registered owner, was fined $1,449 for Motor Vehicle Act violations in April. The motorcyle was later seized by the province’s Civil Forfeiture Office.

Vision Matters Dr. Rachel Rushforth

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

The best fit for safety glasses If you wear safety glasses at work, you should get the best possible fit to protect you from hazards as well as to insure that you see as sharply as possible. Your eye doctor will first give you a thorough vision examination, checking for sources of eye irritation and other vision related problems. He or she will also check your visual acuity, eye coordination, and muscle function. In recommending the beset safety glasses for your needs, your eye doctor will want to know the type of work you do. What level of eye protection is required for your particular occupation? Does your work require that you view object at far and near? Depending on your age you may need safety glasses that correct for vision both close up and in the distance. The position of the tasks you perform must also be considered. If your close up work is above eye level, for example, there are even glasses that have the bifocals on top so that you can work above your head with comfort. Ensure your safety glasses and all your eyewear are meeting your needs as well as possible. See your Optometrist for regular eye examinations.

Trail fountain fundraiser nears goal Edward Hill News staff

New drinking water fountains should be cropping up soon on the Galloping Goose and Lochside regional trails, thanks to a quiet fundraising effort by a former marathon coach. Tom Macdonald launched A Drop In the Bucket campaign last fall to raise $54,000, which would cover the cost of installing nine fountains between Sooke and Sidney. So far he’s funneled $43,800 to the Capital Regional District parks department, or about 80 per cent of his goal. Macdonald expects three fountains to be installed this summer or fall – at the Goose-Lochside junction near Uptown, on Lochside at the Blenkinsop Greenway

junction, and on the Galloping Goose in Colwood, near Sooke Road. “I’d personally like to see nine put in this year, but (CRD parks) has other planning considerations. It has to dovetail with what they are doing,” said Macdonald. “I’ve tried to nudge everyone on for this year, but you’ve got to be patient.” Karen Preston with CRD parks confirmed that three fountains will be installed this year, but details on precise locations or times haven’t been set. Macdonald launched the initiative after spending years as a volunteer marathon coach. He had to prearrange water drops along the regional trails for 30-plus kilometre training sessions, and thought to himself,

‘there’s got to be a better way.’ He launched the website adropinthebucket.ca, and he and other volunteers have hit the trail on weekends to drum up cash and support. Hundreds of people have flipped in loonies and toonies into the hat, and some have gone home and donated up to $500 through the website. “I’ve spent many Sundays on the trail. My dog likes it,” Macdonald said. “I hang out with a thermos of coffee and chat with people about it. Most people think it’s a good idea.” See www.adropinthebucket. ca for more information or to donate, or www.crd.bc.ca/parks/ beinvolved/adropinthebucket. htm. editor@saanichnews.com

So the music is, for me, this really great marriage between what it is to be people and what it is to all come together as a community and to capture those energies.” The performance is viewable from throughout the Inner Harbour.

Through music and narration the work celebrates the history of the city, focusing on First Nations heritage, the city’s British roots, the Chinatown area and other aspects of the city’s identity. “Music has a way of very much representing our culture and very much presenting who we are,” music director Tania Miller said. “That’s what we tried to grab in the programming around this 150th anniver-

Setting up for Sooke’s fine art show News staff

Alan Graves is a master at converting an ice arena into an art gallery, the hardest part of setting up the Sooke Fine Arts Show. It takes dozens of volunteers and hundreds of hours to achieve the look and feel of a gallery. And it happens beautifully every year. Graves takes care of details: the large and fine points, from the layout of the panels for the exhibition’s modular system to the lighting, and hanging of the art work to the tiny tweaks to straighten a painting. For the past five years, Graves has been the designer for the Sooke Fine Arts Show. He sorts through hundreds of works of art, finding the perfect spot to display each and every one. Each year is a little different and Graves said this year they are consistently getting a number of art pieces that have the same esthetic. He felt the digital jurying process worked out very well and he was able to get a preliminary view of the work. With that look at the work to be displayed, he was quite surprised at the quality of the

A new Blues musical, Big Mama! The Willie Mae Thornton Story, stars Canadian jazz legend Jackie Richardson backed by an all-star band including Juno nominee Bill Johnson, Ron Casat and Andy Graffiti. Willie Mae Thornton began singing in her father’s Baptist Church in Montgomery, Ala., and by the age of 14 she was touring with the Hot Harlem Revue. In 1951, Thornton signed a recording contract with Peacock Records and subsequently recorded Hound Dog, the Leiber and Stollerpenned tune that was written for her and stayed at No. 1 on the Billboard R&B charts for seven weeks. Three years later, the song would launch the career of Elvis Presley. Like Big Mama, Richardson got her start singing in church. A multi-faceted performer, Rich-

Naming rights idea open for public input Victoria council keeps door open to possibility of sponsored city assets Daniel Palmer News staff

Victoria city council has approved a draft policy that could open the door to lucrative naming rights contracts on cityowned assets. Naming rights will now be included as part of the public consultation process for the city’s 2013 to 2015 budget, to take place this fall. Following last week’s meeting of the city’s governance and priorities committee, Coun. Pam Madoff said council should avoid embracing new economic development initiatives before its final priorities are set. “When we identified as council what our priorities were, (naming rights) didn’t

make it into the top number,” she said. “My concern is that we’re going to lose a really focused approach

to establishing our priorities.” Priority setting is generally done by a newly elected council.

Kyle Wells/News staff

Vees vet named Grizzlies captain Penticton product Zach Urban leads squad in new ownership era Kyle Wells News staff

He’s big, he’s talented and he’s the new captain of the Victoria Grizzlies. Defenceman Zach Urban, 19, stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 205 lbs. He’s coming from the Jr. A national champion Penticton Vees to join the Grizzlies as the team’s first Bill Bestwick-era captain. Through 58 regular season games and 15 postseason outings last season, Urban chalked up four goals and 18 assists, along with 88 penalty minutes. General manager and head coach Best-

wick said the team is moving forward and building up talent. He expects Urban to be a defensive stalwart on the team, along with a leader. “He comes to us knowing what it takes to be a champion,� Bestwick said, “knowing what hard work and dedication and commitment is required to be successful at this level.� The Vees set league records for wins (54) and consecutive wins (42) last season. Urban, born in Alberta, has lived in Kelowna since he was 14 and is excited for the move to both Victoria and the Grizzlies squad. “I’m just going to try to bring my best foot forward. I’m going to have to lead by example being captain,� Urban said. “I’m really excited. I think we have a great group of kids coming in that I think, if we jell properly, we’re going to have a really

successful year.� Along with Urban, defenceman D.J. Jones, 20, is also coming from Penticton in trade for Alex Holland. Forward Brett Hartskamp is also becoming a Grizzly after being acquired from the Swan Valley Stampeders Hockey Club out of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. Forward Turner Lawson, 19, has been acquired from the Vernon Vipers. Goaltender Brady Rouleau and forward Garrett Skrbich are also joining the team in a multi-player deal with the Westside Warriors. Training camp begins Aug. 20, with the team’s first exhibition game scheduled for Aug. 24 at home against the Cowichan Valley Capitals.

The Victoria Shamrocks will face the Coquitlam Adanacs in the first round of playoffs on Saturday after ending the season with two definitive wins. The ’Rocks clinched a playoff spot last Friday after defeating rivals the Nanaimo Timbermen 11-7 at home, in what was their biggest game of the season. The Shamrocks needed one win of their next two games to secure an entry into postseason play. Victoria’s big guns were too much to handle for the Timbermen, with Corey Small leading the way with five goals in the Victoria win. Jeff Shattler contrib-

uted a hat trick, Ryan Benesch added a pair, while Derek Lowe had one goal with three assists. The ’Rocks wrapped up their season Sunday with a 14-10 win over the Timbermen, which locked the Shamrocks into second place in the Western Lacrosse Association standings. Victoria won one and lost two during the regular season against third-place Coquitlam. The Victoria Shamrocks best of seven series against the Adanacs begins Aug. 4, 7:45 at Bear Mountain Arena.
