Songhees reclaim historic islands

As the News reported last Wednesday, the Songhees First Nation is increasing its patrols of Discovery and Chatham islands. Trespassing, fires and litter are damaging the sensitive ecosystem and culturally important areas. News reporter Christine van Reeuwyk went to the islands with members of the First Nation last week and brings us a three-part series that looks at why and how the Songhees is protecting its sovereignty. Please see the story on page A3.

OAK BAY NEWS - Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Part 1 in a series looking at why and how the Songhees First Nation is protecting its private property on Chatham and Discovery islands.

LOOKING BACK: Discovery, Chatham hold rich cultural history Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

H

Christine van Reeuwyk/News staff

The tranquil nature of Chatham Island draws people. Visitors are so comfortable they feel free to build swings, picnic tables and fires on the private property.

Top right: Joan Morris, given name Sellemah, with chickens during her early years on Chatham Island. Right: Young Joan Morris and her grandmother Sellemah at the house on Chatham Island. Morris, whose given name is Sellemah, after her grandmother, lived her first decade with family on the island. Photos courtesy Joan Morris

ands raised with a “hych’ka,” Joan Morris welcomes guests to Chatham Island. “My name is Sellemah, my home is over there on Chatham One and I want to take this opportunity to welcome each and every one of you,” she said Wednesday, before the thank you in her Coast Salish tongue. A childhood home, and place of refuge, Discovery and Chatham islands off the shores of Oak Bay are still a popular destination for quiet. To Sellemah – her given name after her grandmother and the name she prefers – it’s still home, despite being removed for more than 50 years. She lived the first 10 years of her life on the “beautiful” island. “Everyone worked together. We had food. We never went hungry, never heard a cross word from the old ones,” Sellemah said, gazing across from Cattle Point before boarding a boat to visit. She lived there from 1947 to 1957. She was brought up by the “old ones” as her parents were hospitalized and unable to raise her. A topic she doesn’t delve into. When the well dried up the families living on the island moved. “It was home. I still consider it home,” said Sellemah. The Songhees own Chatham Island and a fair chunk of Discovery Island, which is also the site of a provincial park. They are not disputed territories, but established reserves that have also been home to the Songhees for thousands of years. “We had many leaders who went there to practise their culture because it was illegal,” said Lyle Henry, whose given name is Sie-amen-thet. Until the middle of the last century, the Canadian government attempted to assimilate the First Nations. The Indian Act banned displays of things like the

Sun Dance, Potlach and other traditional cultures. The Salish Sea sweeping around the lands offered quiet and relative remoteness providing protection for a traditional life and passing that culture to the next generation in a time when children were routinely whisked unwillingly away to residential schools. As Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a 2008 apology, “Two primary objectives of the residential school system were to remove and isolate children from the influence of their homes, families, traditions and cultures, and to assimilate them into the dominant culture. “These objectives were based on the assumption that aboriginal cultures and spiritual beliefs were inferior and unequal. Indeed, some sought, as was infamously said, ‘to kill the Indian in the child.’” Chatham Island was a safe haven for young Sellemah. Today, the tranquility makes the islands a prime destination for many recreational boaters. Unfortunately, they are trespassing and leave some unnerving damage such as toilets in the bush and the remains of raging campfires. Remnants of garbage speckle the beaches. One beach holds shotgun shells; trespassers took the time to strip the valuable brass tossing leftover plastic back to the beach. Perhaps its ignorance of the signs marking the islands as private property, Sellemah said. “There’s a lot of improvement that has to be done, but I feel as one nation, we can do it, everybody working together,” she said. Already, private boaters tackle the task of protecting the island, UVic studies the plant life, and the Songhees Nation is stepping up an education campaign with patrols and signage at Cattle Point and Oak Bay Marina. Part Two: Coming together, The people who protect, restore the islands Part Three: Moving forward, patrolling the private property cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

After an out-of-control horse-drawn carriage charged through downtown Victoria last week, one city councillor is looking into the incident to determine whether further restrictions should be put on the industry. “I’ll be following up … to see whether we need to (further) regulate what streets (the carriages) are on, or whether we should continue having them,” Coun. Charlayne Thornton-Joe said. “But until I know all the facts, I can’t make any concrete decisions on what the next steps are.” Dave Shishkoff advocates for the outright ban of horse-drawn carriages in Victoria through

his organization, Friends of Animals. He said council would only be following past policies by implementing a ban. “The city has banned rodeos and circus acts with animals, so I don’t see why banning … a form of entertainment that exploits horses couldn’t happen,” he said. Kate Clark, manager of Tally Ho Carriage Tours, said her drivers will not be conducting halfhour tours of downtown until the Victoria police investigation is concluded. “After this incident, it appears there is not enough room for horse carriages and buses to be downtown,” she said. “We’re trying to re-examine our routes at this point in time.” Clark said commercial trucks on Government Street can also create problems for the horses. The incident occurred on Aug. 1 around 2:15 p.m., when police say a Clydesdale was clipped by a tour bus on Fisgard Street in Chinatown. The horse then bucked, losing its driver and one passenger, before taking the remaining passenger on a frenzied ride along the waterfront. “All I heard was the scream of the woman and then we saw the carriage barrel by,” said Nick Chambers, who works at Bean Around the World at 533 Fisgard St. “She was in the back seat just holding on for dear life.” The woman, said to be in her 50s, was whisked down Store and Wharf streets and eventually jumped from the carriage near Fort Street. Police say no one sustained serious injuries. Eric Backhouse was biking northbound on Wharf Street when the horse galloped past. He took quick action, chasing the steed and coaxing it to a halt. “I just looked it in the eye, held up my hand and said, ‘Woah, woah,’ ... and it stopped,” he said. Clark confirmed the horse, Sarge, had been clipped on its shoulder by a tour bus but that it was uninjured. VicPD Spokesman Mike Tucker said collision investigators will likely conclude the file and the matter will be dealt with through insurance companies. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Vision Matters Dr. Neil Paterson

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

More Light At one time or another almost every parent scolds a child for reading in poor light. I often suspect the motivation is mostly jealousy. If I can’t read in poor light, why should anyone else? Young healthy eyes have tremendous mechanisms in place to compensate for lack of light. No evidence exists to suggest reading in poor light can do permanent damage to the eyes, however reading in poor light can cause eyestrain. As we age our ability to focus decreases. Extra light helps by increasing contrast and causing our pupils to contract. The smaller pupil increases our depth of focus, thereby making it easier to read. A strong diffuse light is recommended for reading. Natural daylight is excellent as long as it comes from above or behind the reader. Avoid all sources of glare. Many occupations and hobbies require specific lighting arrangements. If you have questions about your lighting needs, ask your family Optometrist, and don’t be surprised if “MORE LIGHT” is prescribed.

OUR VIEW

Time to fight summer blues While the days of summer are marching past, there is still plenty of time and numerous special events to take advantage of around the Capital Region on those precious days off. While you’re at it, why not check out a new store or restaurant, or combine a trip with a sightseeing tour of sorts? While Victoria is still considered a tourist town first and foremost – government, education and high-tech sectors notwithstanding – the benefits don’t always accrue to those who prime themselves for the annual rush of visitors. The cruise-ship business, for example, focuses primarily on certain major players such as Butchart Gardens, the Fairmont Empress Hotel and tour bus companies. While the passengers are given free time to walk the streets of downtown, many merchants report the hard financial benefits aren’t as rosy as the tourism folks might have us believe. That’s where localized events such as the upcoming Victoria Dragon Boat Festival, and the fledgling Chalk Festival, spotlighting sidewalk artists, can make a difference to our small businesses. Those events allow residents from the Capital Region to gather and see what’s new or interesting in an area of town they may not have visited or explored before. With musical gatherings such as Folkwest, the Vancouver Island Blues Bash and Rifflandia coming up, theatre’s Victoria Fringe Fest, and the visual arts-based Esquimalt Arts Festival and Fibrations – not to mention the numerous regular offerings in those sectors – there are plenty of opportunities to support area merchants while taking in an event. Whether you’re from Langford, Oak Bay, Saanich or James Bay, these focused events allow chances to broaden your experiences and try out a new restaurant, step inside a retail store you haven’t visited before, or meet someone new and interesting who might be working at street level. You might be pleasantly surprised and wind up your summer on an even higher note. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@oakbaynews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

shows the inconsistency of opposition to pipelines. Does anyone really believe that a new pipeline built to the highest standards ever is too dangerous, while a 60-year-old pipeline is safer? Protesters have an easy target in Kinder Morgan. With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic to Vancouver’s environment and economy. Tankers have made the trip safely for nearly 100 years, but the congested modern shipping lane offers more threat of collision, and clearing Burrard Inlet for neardaily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade. An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain open-minded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds. Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the anti-pipeline parade early, as they did with the carbon tax and other issues. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming.

‘Levying a B.C. tax on Northern Gateway revenues is no solution.’

Re: Increasing the buzz in Oak Bay (News July 25). Oak Bay residents should be encouraged to make homes and nest box areas for mason bees, bumble bees, and other native bees – all of which are excellent pollinators. However, hives for honey bees (which are not native bees as implied in your article) should remain limited to the very largest Oak Bay properties. Approximately 20 years ago, the Oak Bay Star had a front page article about about a lady complaining about the bee poop from her neighbour’s honey bee hives. I didn’t think much of The Oak Bay Star article (my parents had a hive without problems in our huge back yard when I was young) until about two years later when I had a neighbour move in on a large property across the street and set up two legal bee hives. Bee poop is nasty stuff. It is yellowish-brown, sticky oblong spots that are very difficult to remove. My windows, vehicles, sundeck – including on the far side of my house – were constantly coated with bee poop. Even my neighbours across the street on the far side of my house complained about their vehicles and windows being covered with bee poop (200 feet from the hives). Visitors coming to my house for a couple of hours on a sunny summer day were always asking, ‘what’s all that stuff?’ on their cars. Fortunately, this neighbour and the bee hives moved away after a few years, and since then I have had no problems with bee poop. I am a gardener. I have mason bees and have many plants, bushes, and fruit trees that attract bees. I grow a large vegetable garden and have lots of flowers. I am glad Oak Bay is allowing smaller lots to keep chickens now (maybe in a few years I will get some). I even like seeing the visiting deer, though I have to go to extra work netting some plants, like my peas, and my scarlet runners are nibbled regularly. I hope Oak Bay News will no longer encourage people to have honey bee hives in Oak Bay. Even Oak Bay’s current restrictions are not good enough if one’s property lies under the flight path to a nearby hive. Bee poop is a very serious issue. Elaine Davies Oak Bay

Why not reno? A question for Howard Waldner is why not renovate Oak Bay Lodge? What were the estimated costs/ hurdles for that option? (I note in the July 4 article in the News says that VIHA may consider using the lodge for another ambulatory care purpose – so the facility is still usable.) If the costs are significantly less than the re-build recently rejected, then use the balance towards another facility. Who of us aging boomers (many of us zoomers)

want to live in a huge, impersonal high-rise facility anyways? Re: the 320 bed “requirement” – whose requirement is that – VIHA or Baptist Housing? Is that the number needed to make a profit? I do not understand the quote from Coun. Kevin Murdoch stating “modern standards demand a bigger building.” What type of “modern standards” is he referring to? Profits? Standard of care? Sign me puzzled in Oak Bay. Jennie Sutton Oak Bay

Disappointment over Oak Bay Lodge decision Regarding the Oak Bay Lodge decision. I must express my great disappointment at the recent decision of the mayor and council of Oak Bay to turn down the Oak Bay Lodge proposal. As a result we will lose a much needed facility in our municipality. I feel the decision is narrow minded and expresses a selfishness and lack of concern for others in Greater Victoria. Whenever any sort of change is asked for in our municipality there is a great hew and cry which is basically a “not in my backyard” response. The variance application procedure must be in place for some good reason and in this instance I think you should have considered the value

of such a facility rather than focusing on a few feet of overheight. The facility houses residents from every municipality, their family members visit regularly and make use of some of the business in our area. As well, staff no doubt make use of our stores and restaurants, adding to the economy of our area. I have just returned from a visit to New York, a city which works marvelously well in spite of its very tall buildings and busy streets. It seems ludicrous that we are quibbling over adding a story to a very much needed facility, and makes me embarrassed to be an Oak Bay resident. Patricia Miller Oak Bay

Lounging on the waterfront Olive Price, 2, has a chat with her grandmother Brenda Price on Cadboro Bay Beach while relaxing on a deluxe beach lounger. Price, who is recovering from a knee injury, didn’t want to miss spending time with her granddaughter who is returning to Geneva, Switzerland after a three-week visit.

Cadboro Bay Festival goes all weekend The annual celebration of all things Cadboro Bay has turned into an all-weekend affair. Music, art and the ever-elusive Cadborosaurus will be honoured Aug. 11 and 12 as the Cadboro Bay Festival expands to include a street party in the village. Gyro Park has long been host to a family fun day one Sunday each August. This year the fun begins a day earlier when Cadboro Bay Road between Sinclair Road and Penrhyn Street shuts down and hosts artists, musicians and kids’ activities during the Saturday street party. Artists in paint, glass, silver and photography will be on hand – some at work on the spot, and others simply displaying their pieces – as musicians Paul O’Brien and Tom Hayward perform. Throw in a pirate face-painter and that’s a hard offer to refuse. “We wanted to expand the weekend extravaganza,� said Cadboro Bay Business Improvement Association (BIA) president Brian Dunn. The pre-festival kick-off includes an official unveiling of the village welcome sign, purchased by the BIA and installed in late June. Meanwhile, the Sunday festivities in Gyro Park

have been ramped up. World-champion sand sculpting teams will vie for the people’s choice award and Cadborosaurus trophy as they create four seven-tonne sand sculptures with sand trucked in from Duncan. The annual 25-tonne sand sculpture visitors have come to expect will also remain, as well as a full day of live music, bouncy castles, hand drumming workshops and something the locals have come to know as “pirate school.� “We’re not trying to copy what Parksville’s doing,� said Saanich special events programmer Rob Phillips, in reference to the Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition that happens each July. “We’re trying to offer a different event to our local artists.� The free activities run from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. both days.

Victoria’s folk festival adds international flavour FolkWest gives second year a go Natalie North News staff

The gates closed on Saturday during last year’s first annual FolkWest Festival, capping off a successful day in Royal Athletic Park for organizers – but they couldn’t have predicted just how electric the night show that followed would be. FolkWest artistic director Oliver Swain found himself swept up into the moment when Irish band Martin Nolan, Pierre Schryer and Adam Dobres packed Logan’s Pub and brought the house down with a dance set. “That dance floor was just pumping so hard and that was as thrilling to me as anything that happened on the main stage,� said Swain, who will take his banjo, bass and vocal stylings to Logan’s with Emily Braden during the first night of the festival, Aug. 10. “Those little moments just came out of nowhere.� Swain will continue his long history of performance with Braden the following day when he joins the powerhouse vocalist on the main stage. FolkWest forges ahead into its second year with 23 performance troupes and almost 40 hours of programming – including a mix of international and local performers at Royal Athletic Park and three bands nightly at Logan’s once RAP’s gates close. Emily Braden and the Deepdowns, the Breakmen and Caravan headline the pub Friday through Sunday. “There’s a lot of great local talent and many of them are in demand all over the world,� Swain said. “The concept of the festival is that we have all this great local talent that we

The Milk Carton Kids, Joey Ryan, left, and Kenneth Pattengale are one of the headliners of this year's FolkWest festival, Aug. 11 and 12. want to mix in and celebrate.� In an effort to bring a platform for traditional and contemporary folk music back to Victoria following the loss of Rootsfest and FolkFest events in 2002 and 2006, respectively, Swain, along with friends Bryan Skinner, Joelle May,

Kelly Sherwin and Adam Bailey, began fundraising in 2009. The Lower Island FolkFest Society gained official status in May, 2010. Last August’s event had a stronger focus on local musicians – a decision based partially on a desire to promote local performers and somewhat on the budgetary confines of launching a festival. FolkWest 2012 builds on last year’s success – the event drew 4,500 visitors over the weekend, supported by a crew of 300 volunteers – and includes more international headliners alongside Victoria acts, such as The Archers and West My Friend. L.A.’s The Milk Carton Kids and Joy Kills Sorrow of Boston are on the lineup, along with the gypsy jazz of Caravan (Marc Atkinson, Chris Frye, Joey Smith and Daniel Lapp), the West African amasumbou music of Aboubacar Camara and Doundounba and Adonis Puentes Band. “What we really try to do is get together, celebrate and enjoy great, great music in this beautiful city and everything that we have to offer. Bring your family, bring your friends and come celebrate.� The celebration includes local artisans, food vendors curated by the Island Chef Collaborative and plenty to keep the kids entertained with Merlin’s Sun Puppetry, Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary, Sunshine Clowns and the award-winning children’s artists The Kerplunks on the bill. “We’ve figured out just about every way to have fun on a field, all the different ways you can have fun with grass between your toes.� More information can be found on the FolkWest website at FolkWest.ca. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Raven Baroque plays at St. Mary’s Anglican Church in Oak Bay on Aug. 11, 7:30 p.m.

Back in time with Raven Baroque

T

he baroque era in music – 1650 to 1750 – has produced some of the bestloved classical music. On Sunday, Aug. 11 at 7:30 p.m., Raven Baroque’s group of 10 musicians in period costume will play a variety of some of the best of that period at St. Mary’s Anglican Church, 1701 Elgin St. in Oak Bay. Soloists include Rainer Roth on recorder and Hollas Longton on violin in Bach’s popular Brandenburg Concerto #5 with Shane

Beech playing the notoriously complex keyboard line. Later Roth will play an oboe solo with Julia Hostetler in Bach’s Double concerto for oboe and violin. Longton is the solo violinist in his arrangement of Frescobaldi’s Mass of the Apostles. Hollas Longton, a former UVic student, received his masters in composition from the Royal Academy in the Hague. Works by Albinoni, Handel, Tartini, and concerto grossi by Vivaldi and Corelli, each with

three soloists, feature Larry Skaggs and Laine Longton sharing cello solos while Lauren Klein and Hollas Longton share the violin solos. Raven Baroque combines the fireworks of youth and experience which results in a concert experience that’s satisfying and exciting to both audience and musicians. Tickets are $15 at the door and at Ivy’s Books, 2188 Oak Bay Ave. llavin@vicnews.com

Victoria hosts ultimate nationals 72 teams, 1,500 athletes to vie for championship

Pat Harris remembers his first national ultimate championship back in 1987 in Ottawa, when the game was young and relatively unknown. The championship had a few teams in one division, and Harris helped pave the way for a sport breaking out of its stigma as a glorified game of Frisbee. Harris, 48, played for the Calgary Cynics and went on to the world championships more than a few times. “We’ve travelled the world – Belgium, Hawaii, Madison, Wisc. It’s a worldwide sport,” Harris says. “To represent your country if you win nationals, go to the worlds, it’s a special thing.” Ultimate is a disc-based field sport with elements of football, soccer and basketball. Players throw the disc to advance up the field toward the endzone, but a player with the disc can’t run – they can pivot and pass, like a basketball player. For the first time in 15 years, Victoria will host the Canadian national ultimate championships, which expects to draw 1,500 athletes from top teams from Newfoundland to B.C. Since that first championship, the egalitarian sport that prides itself on fair play, no referees and co-ed squads has found a following of fiercely loyal players. “(Ultimate) is co-ed, competitive and self-officiated. There’s no cheating. It doesn’t go on,” Harris says. “I like the community nature of it. You play hard and after go out and enjoy each other’s company. Nobody pays you to play. You have to love this game.” Harris’s master’s team, Republic is one of two Victoria-based squads in the nationals. “The key word in Republic is ‘pub,’” he

Here he's getting in practice time at the fields of Lansdowne middle school last Thursday in preparation for this year's national championship in the master's division. jokes. “As in we are a group that can either hang out at the pub, or choose to play ultimate.” The other, the Skysharks, is a mixed team in its second season, and with one national championship tournament under its belt. Clayton Howlett, 27, of Saanich, helped launch the Skysharks after playing competitive ultimate in Vancouver for three years. “This is a young team, about a year old. Last year we went to the nationals in Ottawa seeded 10th and we came out of it 10th,” says Howlett, one of four team captains on the Skysharks. “I had no idea we’d make it to nationals. We expected to get trashed an use it as a learning

IN BRIEF

The B.C. bantam female lacrosse squad has won a national championship for the first time in provincial history. Team B.C. beat Ontario two games to one at Bear Mountain Arena on Friday (Aug. 3). The girls held on to a 4-3 lead in game three to take the gold medal. Mainland girls Keeley O’Neill, Megan Kinna and Katie Browning scored the first three for B.C., but Juan de Fuca’s Elle Hamilton found the net for goal No. 4 to secure the win.

exercise, but we held our place and showed we could contend.” This year the Skysharks came in second in the province behind Vancouver-based 7 Deadly Spins, the former Canadian and world champions. “We hope to contend with them, we want to contest the world champs,” Howlett says. The tournament is spread through fields at Lansdowne school, St. Michaels University School, Topaz Park and Royal Athletic Park for the finals. “Victoria has great facilities in terms of fields,” says Danny Saunders, executive director for Ultimate Canada. “And it’s an ideal location in the summer for Canadian players,”

Tournament director Kevin Bruleigh said organizing a national event for 72 teams with 1,500 players and their families and coaches will help raise the profile of ultimate in Victoria. “The instant perception of the sport is people think of the beach and dogs and hippies hanging out. It’s not like that. These are athletes training for competition. It is a huge commitment,” Bruleigh says. “The best of the best in Canada, coming to compete in the capital city.” The Canadian ultimate championships run Aug. 16 to 19 on fields in Victoria and Saanich. See www. cuc2012.ca for details. editor@saanichnews.com

The Saanich Tigers came home from the 2012 bantam B lacrosse provincials, held in Burnaby July 27 to 29, with the bronze medal after beating the Surrey Rebels 9-5 in their final game. Saanich was one of eight bantam B teams that won their way into the provincials beating out the nearly 50 bantam B teams across the province. After dropping an 11-10 overtime heartbreaker to the North Delta Hawks in their opening game the Tigers rattled off an 8-5 win against the Comox Wild and an 11-3 win over the Surrey Rebels before dropping a 10-5 decision to eventual champions the Chilliwack Mustangs in the semi-finals. This put them into a rematch with the Surrey Rebels for the Bronze, where they once again came away with the win. Jackson Boyd from the Saanich Tigers was named the overall provincial tournament MVP, in the Bantam B division.

BAY NEWS

Mayhem follows suspected pressure-washer scammer Kyle Slavin News staff

A handcuffed man who ran away from security officers at Wal-Mart in Saanich was picked up during a breakand-enter in progress by Nanaimo RCMP last month. On July 12, security at the Uptown store witnessed the suspect take a vacuum cleaner off the shelf and bring it to return desk to receive funds. After completing a successful transaction, he was picked up by a security officer outside the store. He surrendered his wallet, including identification, and was handcuffed, but threatened to assault the guard, so he was allowed to flee – still in handcuffs. His identification was turned over to Saanich police. “This gentleman is well known to our officers. He was recognized by investigating officers immediately,” said Sgt. Dean Jantzen. On July 14, Nanaimo RCMP were alerted by a homeowner on Westwood Road about a break and enter in his home. RCMP officers arrived with a canine unit, but were unsuccessful in locating a suspect. While on the scene, an unknown vehicle arrived, and when mounties attempted to question the driver, he ran. The canine unit was able to locate the man, as well as some stolen items

from the Westwood Road home. Kevin Thomas Gordon, 37, faces charges of possession of stolen property and obstructing a police officer in Nanaimo. He was charged by Saanich police with theft under $5,000, fraud under $5,000 and escape from lawful custody for the incident at Wal-Mart. When picked up by Nanaimo RCMP, he had a warrant out for his arrest from Oak Bay Police for fraud under $5,000. In May, Saanich police put out a warning to Capital Region residents about a pressure-washing scam. Jantzen, at the time said the name “Kevin Gordon” was being used by the scammer. Oak Bay Det.-Const. Mike Martin says their fraud charge against Gordon stems from this pressure-washing scam, where victims paid for services that were never completed. Gordon appeared in court in Victoria last Wednesday afternoon (Aug. 1). He was charged with seven new counts of fraud, stemming from the pressure-washing scam, for incidents that occurred in Saanich and Colwood. Saanich police Sgt. Scott Treble said in a press release that several of the pressure-washing scam victims also reported having jewelry, credit cards, identification cards and other items stolen from their homes. kslavin@saanichnews.com
