Saanich among safest places in Canada Community policing, aging population helps, says mayor Kyle Slavin News staff

Saanich is one of the safest municipalities in the country to live, according to crime stats released by Statistics Canada. The municipality knocked 12.8-per-cent off its crime severity index (CSI), released in late July, which measures the seriousness of crime in 239 communities across Canada with populations greater than 10,000.

Saanich came in at No. 203, where the higher the number, the safer the community. Amherstburg, Ont., is statistically the safest place on the list with a ranking of 239. The least safe is North Battleford, Sask. Saanich’s crime severity index came in at 44.5 in 2011 versus 57.3 the year before. Unlike the crime rate, which measures volume of crime, with the CSI, each offence is assigned a weight, and the more serious offences have a greater impact. “(This result) is certainly a credit to the hardworking men and women of this organization,” said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen. While Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard applauded the officers in the munic-

It’s the communitybased approach to policing that makes a difference, he said. “We’ve got 115,000 people, almost all of them are our partners (against) crime. And if they feel that they have a community police department that’s open to their

input, their advice, their partnership, they can help us prevent crime,” Leonard said. “We want our force to have more interaction with the good guys than the bad guys, and we put a lot of emphasis on it.” The mayor also said Saanich’s aging population plays a role in a low crime rate. “Our demographic is in our favour. There are fewer young men in their 20s than there used to be, and young men in their 20s tend to break the law,” he said. “I’ll give us some credit, but I’m realistic to know that the demographic is an advantage, as well.” PLEASE SEE: ????????, Page A??

Street racing Geo takes flight in Saanich Kyle Slavin News staff

It wasn’t a bird and it wasn’t a plane. What flew through the air Tuesday afternoon in rural Saanich was a car – a blue Geo, to be exact – that became airborne while street racing. Shortly after noon, Saanich police were called to the 300-block of Conway Rd. near Camosun College’s Interurban campus for a report of two street racers. “A red Honda and a blue Geo were racing on the winding, narrow, rural road at speeds of 70-80 km/h,” wrote Const. Mike Bainbridge, with Saanich’s traffic safety unit. That stretch of road has a recommended speed of 10 km/h. The Geo hit the crest in the road, launching it a metre in the air, and sending it crashing on the ground, breaking the engine mounts and nearly hitting a car parked nearby. “The driver abandoned his vehicle nearby and removed the licence plates in an attempt to avoid detection,” Bainbridge wrote. The driver of the Honda picked up the Geo driver and they fled the neighbourhood. Police received six reports of the crash from area residents. The red Honda was located at the nearby college, along with both drivers. Both drivers – a 17-year-old Shawnigan Lake teen and an 18-year-old Cobble Hill teen – carried novice licences and have driving histories known to police. “The Geo has been reported to police on several previous occasions as a dangerous driver, and the driver of the Honda has previously been suspended from driving twice,” Bainbridge wrote. The department’s collision reconstruction team determined the Geo was travelling at least 87 km/h when it hit the crest. Both the Geo and the Honda were impounded for seven days. The driver of the Geo was charged with driving without due care and attention, which comes with a $368 fine. The Honda driver was issued a $196 fine for driving without consideration for safety of others. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Hearing the voices of elders In the first of a series, the News explores the history, culture and ecology of Chatham and Discovery islands Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Hands 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 thanking the crowd in her Coast Salish tongue. A childhood home, and place of refuge, Discovery and Chatham islands off the shores of Oak Bay and Saanich 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. It’s 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 people for thousands of years. “We had many leaders who went there to practise their culture because it was illegal,” said

For young Joan Morris and her grandmother Sellemah, Chatham island was a safe haven for aboriginal people in an era of forced attendance in notorious residential schools. 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. It protected traditional life and allowed the passing of 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 brush, garbage 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 researchers study the plant life, and the Songhees Nation is embarking on an education campaign stepping up patrols and signage at Cattle Point and Oak Bay Marina.

Also ranked low in the 239 communities were neighbouring jurisdictions Oak Bay (209), Colwood (211), North Saanich (223) and Central Saanich (229). Victoria was the highest-ranked community in the Capital Region at 30th in Canada, though even the city dropped 13 spots, seeing a 14-percent decrease in its crime severity index from 2010. “We’re proud of what we achieved, but we also recognize that more work

needs to be done to reduce crime,” acting VicPD Chief Del Manak said in a statement. The Capital Region ranked 16th out of 33 metropolitan areas across the country for overall crime severity. That placed Greater Victoria behind such regular crime leaders as Vancouver, Abbotsford-Mission and Kelowna, but worse than such larger cities as Calgary, Toronto and Ottawa. – with files from Daniel Palmer kslavin@saanichnews.com

SAANICH NEWS -Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Residents press Saanich for more public gardens Edward Hill News staff

Residents have called on the Saanich parks department to boost the priority of creating more community gardens in the district, and within its new master plan. Saanich parks director Paul Henderson unveiled the municipality's new parks, recreation and culture master plan in July, the first new overarching plan in 10 years. The plan covers 29 key objectives – from managing and improving parks and trails, to updating community programs, to maintenance for recreation and seniors centres. It suggested that plots of land in existing parks might be suitable for local food production, or possibly municipally-owned boulevard land. “Certainly (community gardens) are identified in the strategic plan. The long-term plan is to get at least one community garden in each local area,” Henderson said. “A key piece is having an organization take over a site for gardening once its established.” Saanich has two large community gardens – Agnes Street and Capital City Allotment Gardens, both which were established decades ago and have wait lists. A number of residents at the July meeting underscored the importance of gardening in terms of food security and keeping con-

nected with the earth. Planting, weeding and getting your hands dirty is good for the soul, they said. “I feel community gardens are an excellent asset to the community. They are good on many levels, it’s good for people to grow things in the dirt,” said Paul Whitworth, president of the Royal Oak Community Association. “We’ve got enough post-traumatic stress disorder in everyday life. Gardening makes you feel good.” Carol Pickup, a former Saanich councillor, said community gardening feeds the social well-being of the community. Saanich needs to find space in dense urban areas, to allow apartment dwellers a chance to grow food, she told council. “Community gardens give people the opportunity to get fresh air, to socialize and exercise, which is important especially for seniors,” Pickup said. “And a lot of community gardens give to food banks.” “There is a lot of interest in community gardens,” agreed Coun. Vic Derman. “We might look for gardens in higher density neighbourhoods where there is no access to backyards, rather than in rural Saanich for example.” Henderson indicated that Royal Oak is the closest to establishing a new community garden, although the municipality is open to looking at creating plots in existing parks

Curtis Butcher gets the bed he and co-workers from Empire Landscaping ready for planting at the Capital City Allotment Gardens, one of two community gardens in Saanich. and public land, as long as a community group takes responsibility. “(Gardening) is certainly a passion people have,” Henderson said. “For us it’s a matter of balancing capacity. Parks gets 4,000 calls for service and 100 projects. We know there is interest in the community. It’s about finding the capacity to put it in place.”

The Parks, Recreation and Culture master plan will come back to council likely in September, and acts as a guide for specific planning for programs and projects. Council asked Henderson to restructure the report in a more reader friendly format. Significantly, this master plan doesn’t recommend building any

new recreation infrastructure or buying more parkland. Henderson said the district needs to maintain what it has, although it assesses buying land as the opportunity arises. The district has 60 sports fields, 53 playgrounds, 50 pedestrian bridges and nearly 100 kilometres of trails to maintain, plus four recreation centres and Cedar Hill golf course. “This plan recognizes we are in challenging economic times,” Henderson said. “And infrastructure is more than bricks and mortar, it’s trails, natural areas, parks and the whole package.” Perhaps one of the more alarming statements amid the many key strategic objectives was to spin off Cedar Hill golf course as a municipal corporation or for “outright sale,” to help improve the imbalance in expenses and revenues for the parks department. Henderson said those options fell out of consultant discussions with stakeholders during information gathering on the golf course, and isn’t an initiative of Saanich. “The district has no interest, no thought of doing anything with the golf course other than getting it back to a sustainable operation,” he said.

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 break-and-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 officer, 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 successfully locate the man, as well as 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

A Saanich man has been charged with drug and gun offenses after police raided his Tattersal home last week. Mark William Guy, 30, appeared in court on Aug. 1 and is charged

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

with possession of cocaine and ecstasy for trafficking, possession of marijuana, and possessing a .357 Magnum revolver, a .38 Special revolver and a Remington 879 shotgun without

permits. Guy has remained in custody and is due in court today. A 28-year-old man and 27-year-old woman also face charges from the July 31 raid.

The block surrounding the sports centre, and adjacent businesses were closed until about 10 a.m. Friday. “It’s really important for us to preserve the area and collect as much evidence as possible,” Tucker said. “We had a wide area closed off to collect evidence and we’re currently canvassing neighbours and the neighbourhood to see if anyone has information about what occurred last night.” While the death is suspicious, police say there appears to be no risk to the public. Police ask anyone with information about the suspicious death to call VicPD at 250-995-7654, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Summer heat brings out bylaw enforcement As summer temperatures climb high and people across the Capital Region head to their favourite swimming holes to beat the heat, they won’t be alone. Capital Regional District parks staff, bylaw enforcement officers and West Shore RCMP officers will continue their patrols of summertime hotspots in an effort to curb liquor and other bylaw infractions. This season has been much quieter for enforcement, perhaps due to the cooler weather, said Janette Loveys, manager of park operations. “Most of our work has been around making contact with park visitors in a very proactive way and then seeking volunteer compliance,” Loveys said. “Alcohol is either dumped, or people choose to leave.”

If people choose not to comply, they could receive a $200 fine for consuming liquor in a park. The fine doubled in 2010 to deter public drinking. “We want to make sure that it’s a positive park experience for everyone. There might be behaviour or safety issues as well. Often is alcohol though, because if it’s a nice summer day, people want to go out and have a drink.” Thetis Lake and Sooke Potholes are two of the areas constantly being patrolled through the joint effort with RCMP, though Elk and Beaver lakes, as with any other CRD park, is being monitored. “It’s not a secret. We want park visitors to see the patrols. Even having the presence in a proactive way addresses the issues before they become significant.” nnorth@saanichnews.com

SAANICH NEWS -Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Erin McCracken News staff

With a tired smile, Melissa Whitney watches her eldest son play in the front yard. “Look mom, I’m opening the door,” Keegan, 5, calls gleefully to her, twisting the handle of the front door lying on the front lawn. Movers arrived at the breakfast hour, first removing the door from the Whitney family home in the Work Point military housing community in Esquimalt, before beginning the day-long job of loading boxes of personal belongings, beds and appliances onto a nearby moving truck. Another moving truck is parked farther down the street, a telltale sign that military posting season – which heats up across Canada every summer – is in full swing at CFB Esquimalt. Melissa’s husband, Master Cpl. Rob Whitney, is one of 14,300 Canadian Forces members, including about 1,150 from CFB Esquimalt, who will continue with their careers at another base, at home or abroad, this fiscal year. The Whitneys are headed to CFB Suffield, near Medicine Hat, Alta., after a five-year posting to CFB Esquimalt. Rob’s third posting allows Melissa and their sons, Keegan, and Luka, 3, to move closer to family. “Change is always good,” says Melissa, the daughter of a British army medic father who spent much of his career on the move. “I don’t understand how people can be in the same house, in the same town for years and years and years. I crave change.” Many military members view their career more as a lifestyle than just a source of income. Part of working for the Canadian military often means relocating for training purposes or filling positions left vacant by members who have been promoted to the next rank, or who are retiring or leaving the military. “The whole focus of the military is having the right member in the right position at the right time,” says Chief Warrant Officer Cate Gaudet, who works within CFB

Esquimalt’s administration branch. “Each position has very specific requirements.” That means big change for families. To help, the Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) launched an e-tool in February called Navigating Your Move. It offers a step-by-step explanation of what to expect during a move, possible challenges and a relocation checklist, among other links. “It’s set up like a road map, so it’s like your journey through your move, from the time you get your posting message to the time you unpack your house in the new location,” says Colleen Cahoon, co-ordinator of FamilyNavigator.ca, the website that hosts the e-tool. “The problem for military families is that there isn’t consistency (in available services) from province to province,” Cahoon says. “Each family is different and they each have different needs once they get to the new place.” Jennifer Campbell and her husband, Cpl. Troy Campbell, an air force firefighter who has been posted from CFB Greenwood, N.S., to a ship at the West Coast naval base, crossed Canada to begin their new life at the Belmont Park military family housing community in Colwood. Her first move before moving was walking in to her MFRC in Greenwood, N.S. for an information package on CFB Esquimalt. “It helped us check off some things on our list,” Jennifer says regarding MFRC services. “For me, as a wife and a mother of two small kids, I want to know where the school is, where the hospital is.” When the couple came here on their house-hunting trip in June, they made sure to visit the MFRC in Colwood. “We stopped in to get information on a list of doctors and dentists, because I guess doctors are like a gold mine to find,” says Jennifer, who had never travelled west of Ontario before her house-hunting trip. Staff at 32 MFRCs across Canada play a pivotal role in enhancing the quality of life for families, arming

them with information that can help them settle in their new city, among other services. “It’s that whole starting over each time you move. It’s hard for everybody,” says Mary Lou Climenhaga, the Esquimalt MFRC’s community integration and information and referral co-ordinator. Despite the unknowns the Campbells had to navigate before leaving Greenwood, they remain excited about the future and life in Greater Victoria – for the most part. “We can’t wait to get there. It’s just absolutely gorgeous,” Jennifer says. “The only sad part is leaving family.” editor@vicnews.com

Vision Matters Dr. Victor J. Chin

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 W

hile 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.

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.

Readers respond: School funding, herring health, deer population, first responder safety Funding situation proof of sad state of public schools Re: Saanich School District going into business (News, July 13) The headline led into a very sad article highlighting the need for public schools to raise funds however they can. Provincial government funding of such a vital resource as schools has been declining in value each year, far more than can be justified on the basis of declining enrolment. In fact, the inequality of schools based upon neighbourhood income is made worse when parents are expected to constantly pick up the slack. This reported foray into international privatization is simply a more overt example of the government’s chronic underfunding. I’m a senior citizen who acknowledges the critical importance of quality education for all in our society. It’s tragic that the Liberals are so willing to shrug off their complicity in forcing taxpayer-funded schools to become profitseeking entities. Have they no shame? Connie Foss More Saanich

New Craigflower pilings could take care of herring, too Re: Small oyster, extra headache (News, July 20) 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 the Pacific herring. A few years ago, the Squamish Streamkeepers Society discovered that herring were spawning on the creosotecoated 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

Farming, harvesting options available for local deer Recently two people resigned from the Capital Regional District citizens advisory group that is trying to formulate a deer management plan. Their complaint seems to be, among other things, that nobody can give them an accurate deer population number. Unfortunately, the deer don’t participate in the census and as a taxpayer, I don’t really want to pay someone to go out and count them. The fact is, they’ve become so numerous to be problematic. Not only do they devour gardens and farms, they’ve become accustomed to people and a danger to people and pets. And without any natural predators, their numbers are growing yearly. You don’t need an expensive study to know that. Why not farm them just as we do cattle? What a natural food resource. Deer and other cloven-hoofed mammals are farmed all over the world. Licensed farmers could safely and harmlessly capture the deer and transport them to their farms where they could live in their natural environment, breed, and provide a sustainable source of food.

Allocate a portion of the meat to soup kitchens throughout the region and then sell the rest on the open market. What an opportunity, in a world where the demand for food is increasing and supplies are declining. Venison, in its different forms, is a very nutritional source of low-fat protein. It costs less than beef. Businesses and jobs would be created, which in turn, would generate more tax dollars. Local restaurants could offer fresh venison on their menus. I know it can be done. I met a gentleman in Tumbler Ridge, B.C. and that’s what he did. I think he called it fallow deer. Do you think if we could get a doe to co-operate, we could get milk? Bob Broughton Victoria

New privacy law set a slippery slope of low standards Re: First responder protection law clashes with privacy rights (News, July 27) As a privacy professional whose spouse is a cop, I understand both sides of this debate all too well. My spouse has been involved in a variety of altercations, had to subdue and place vomiting and incontinent drunks into vehicles and into jail, and encountered numerous situations in which there was ‘splash back’ of the suspect’s bodily fluids. Getting access to the suspect’s medical file would have been irrelevant and unnecessary. A law such as this can only be valid if it clearly articulates and limits the circumstances in which such a privacy invasion may be conducted, and limits to whom the information may be further divulged. If it merely offers a general statement that the offender’s medical record ‘may’ be divulged and that it ‘may’ then be shared

with ‘others’ then it invites unwarranted fishing expeditions into any individual’s medical record ‘just in case’ something might be found. I would suggest that if there is a valid reason to review a suspect’s medical file, the first responder ought not be the person to conduct the review. Perhaps a neutral third party -- such as a courtappointed and entirely unbiased medical professional -- ought to be the person to review the suspect’s medical record to search only for specified information. A further problem is that this sort of law sets a very low standard and an inviting precedent. Teachers are often bitten by their young students. Should teachers be able to see a student’s entire medical file? Ambulance attendants, hospital porters and housekeeping staff are often left to clean up the bodily fluids of patients, and handle linens and other items soiled with bodily fluids. Should they all be allowed to review the entire medical record of everyone whose fluids they might have mopped up? Sharon Polsky Calgary, Alta.

Tourist taken on wild ride after horse clipped by bus Daniel Palmer News staff

After an out-of-control horsedrawn 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 she instructed her drivers to stop doing half-hour tours of downtown until the 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 Tally Ho Clydesdale was clipped by a tour bus on Fisgard Street in Chinatown. The horse then bucked its driver and one passenger before taking a tourist 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 and woman 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 is 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

Feds finally fund home for homeless vets A Colwood facility that helps troubled military veterans got a welcome funding boost from the federal government. In a ceremony at the Royal Canadian Legion on Gorge Road in Victoria on July 31, Minister of State for Seniors Alice Wong announced $258,000 for Cockrell House. The five-unit townhouse can house 11 people. Since it opened with little fanfare in 2009, the facility has helped more than two dozen

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

Contributed photo

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

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.

News staff

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

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.

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.

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.

Day care for dementia patients shuts its doors her vision of a new way to care for the elderly as they make the difficult transition from independence to the need for constant care. Open Hearts Adult Daycare welcomed its first clients to a refurbished Colwood home at 647 Kelly

Rd. in April 2011. On June 15, the service closed its doors for the last time and the house was put up for sale. Unless she can find an unexpected source of funding, Donaldson says her vision of a private service to complement crowded public care is just not financially feasible. Not yet anyway. “I’m still very passionate about the model of care,” she said, listing off demographic statistics to support her case. Aging baby boomers are beginning to suffer from dementia and the population bulge their generation represents has caused concern that public health care can’t keep up. A primary nurse with 30 years of experience, Donaldson believes groups of people with dementia can get along fine. “It only takes two people to look after 10 instead of 10 people looking after 10,” she said. “We won’t be able to sustain that.” Her idea appears to have worked, judging from the testimony of those who used the

Donaldson says red tape and a lack of government funding made it financially impossible for her to continue offering the service. service before it shut down. It just couldn’t compete on costs against public services that are heavily subsidized by the health authority. “You keep hearing about this growing tide of dementia but I, for the life of me, cannot understand why VIHA would not support her efforts,” said Barb Denney, who used Open Hearts about once per week for respite from caring for her husband. “My husband continues to be a very difficult guy with his dementia,” Denny said. “Nichole was the only person, of all the resources I tried, who was able to make a connection with my husband.” Mary Moreau started using Open Hearts for its bath service. Donaldson had converted the home’s garage into a comfortable space for elderly clients who needed help bathing. Moreau was leery of going to a government run facility

because of a negative experience she had when her mother needed the service. Donaldson, who had continued to take nursing shifts around her day schedule, helped ease the transition by getting Moreau’s father to use the facility at Mount St. Mary. Public care is a fraction of the cost -- about $5 compared to $40 for private. While the original goal of Donaldson was to run Open Hearts without government assistance, she realized that the business model just can’t work without subsidies. Donaldson said she eventually did approach the Vancouver Island Health Authority with cap in hand. But when the decision came down that no money would be made available for her, she realized it was time to put her dream on hold before losing everything.
