Youth shelter initiative finds a roof Portable classrooms will help West Shore kids at risk of being homeless Kyle Wells News staff

Homeless youths on the West Shore are one step closer to having a roof over their heads and a better chance to improve their situation.

The West Shore Youth Housing Force has secured the purchase of two portable classrooms that it hopes to move to a location in Langford and renovate into temporary shelters for homeless youth. Now they just need a place to put them. Task force chair Bill McElroy said ideally they want to locate the portables somewhere near Belmont Secondary school and Westshore Town Centre Mall, a common hangout spot for youth. The group is looking at options to buy,

rent or use donated land. Once the 7-by-12 metre portables are situated, the group will renovate them to create bedrooms as well as a kitchen and living space. When finished, the portables will house six to eight youths. For at least five years now there has been no reliable shelter for youth who are unable to go home at night. There are shelters in the City of Victoria, but nothing on the West Shore. McElroy said it’s common to have

youths sleeping alongside the Galloping Goose Trail or by Langford Lake. Couch surfing is another common option. Of those youths who do end up homeless, approximately 60 to 80 per cent are fleeing some form of abusive environment at home, said McElroy. “A lot of people say ‘well why don’t those kids just go home.’ Well, it’s not quite that simple,� McElroy said.

VIHA spends $880,000 on ‘corporate welfare,’ BCTF says Daniel Palmer News staff

Brittany Lee/News staff

Hailey Finnigan, curator at the newly opened Metchosin Art Gallery, stands in front of one of the pieces currently on display by artist Maggie Cole, whose work is showing during the gallery’s first exhibit. The gallery is open every Thursday to Sunday. Cole’s exhibit runs until Aug. 26.

A new home for art T

Brittany Lee News staff

he white walls glow under the bright lights of the newly opened Metchosin Art Gallery. A former elementary school library, the space has been transformed into a gallery for fine art. Its first exhibit, featuring the works of artist Maggie Cole, opened Aug. 3. The MAG, as it is known, has been a project of Coun. Jo Mitchell, and the Metchosin Arts and Cultural Centre Association (MACCA). Helped by a $15,000 grant from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities, the collaborative efforts of the school district and municipality are finally complete. “I don’t think there’s an exhibition space like this on the West Shore,” MAG curator Hailey Finnigan says. “It’s open, bright. It’s brand new, so I think people are really going to see it for how special it is.” The gallery covers more than 1,000-square-feet. Finnigan hopes the space will be used for a variety of purposes, including art shows, film screenings, poetry readings, and workshops. “I want this space to be a real multi-use space,” she says. “I want it to be used in sort of an unpredictable way, which will be fun and engaging.” The MAG’s first exhibit, Maggie Cole: A Retrospective, runs Thursday to Sunday until Aug. 26. Finnigan chose Cole as the gallery’s first exhibitor because she says the artist’s work sets a good tone for the gallery’s opening. “I don’t yet know who my patrons are going to be,” Finnigan says. “So I want to start off the programming with artwork that is accessible to a lot of people, but also provokes some questions about ‘How does art fit into my life?’”

9.99 2P C C O D

Cole’s work is a “good jumping off point for art education,” Finnigan says. But the gallery isn’t just a space for art and education, it’s a place the community can use and share, MACCA’s president Mary Gidney says. “We want to try and involve the community as much as possible,” she says. “It’s an art gallery that’s open to lots of possibilities.” Gidney spearheaded the association’s efforts on the gallery along with fellow board member Colleen Brownlee. The building, which MACCA took over in 2008, is already home to many artists who have studios throughout both levels of the school. The idea to construct an art gallery came after artists expressed the need for more studio space, Gidney says. She hopes people visiting Metchosin will make an effort to include the gallery in their exploration of the community. “It’s a chance to get to know Metchosin,” she says. reporter@vicnews.com

A call to artists: The Metchosin Art Gallery is seeking submissions of work for their Visions of Metchosin show in September. All mediums of work are welcome, with the exception of photography. The art exhibition and competition includes more than $1,300 worth of prizes. People of all ages, including children and seniors, can submit their Metchosin-inspired artwork until Aug. 30. For contest entry forms, see www.metchosinartgallery.ca.

The Vancouver Island Health Authority spent more than $880,000 last year to pay for carbon offsets, something the organization attributes to colder weather in 2011 and the expansion of its hospitals. The 35,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide produced by the authority is still six per cent lower than 2007 levels, when the province began requiring public bodies to purchase offsets through crown corporation Pacific Carbon Trust. VIHA hopes to reduce its carbon footprint by 33 per cent below 2007 levels by 2020. “Heat recovery from chilled water systems has huge potential and is being implemented at Victoria General and Nanaimo Regional General Hospitals,” said spokesperson Shannon Marshall, adding that VIHA is also exploring neighbourhood energy systems with the City of Victoria and Capital Regional District. Pacific Carbon Trust buys carbon credits from energy-efficient companies in the private sector, and then sells them to school districts, health authorities and other government bodies to offset carbon output. Last year, the Trust sold $14 million in credits to public institutions. The system is meant to create an across-theboard neutral carbon footprint throughout the province. “It’s basically corporate welfare,” said Jordan Bateman, B.C. Director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. “The bottom line for me is $14 million in tax money. If it was being handed out in any other kind of grant, people would be up in arms about it.” The carbon-trading program has led to B.C. becoming the third-largest carbon offset economy in North America. It is intended to fund green innovations and encourage reductions in energy consumption. The program has, however, failed to blossom into an international exchange and has not attracted private industry, which accounted for only 0.3 per cent of carbon offset purchases last year. “It’s a free-market failure,” Bateman said. ���If it were any other business, we’d shut it down and move on.” dpalmer@vicnews.com

Gone fishing? Fisheries society hoping to lure beginners with new program that lends out gear Jim Zeeben News staff

There is a reason people who love fishing get so sentimental about their pastime. It is an art – both simple yet infinitely complex – that teaches profound lessons about how we relate to the planet and to ourselves. Those rose-coloured memories and the desire to share them with others are driving a new provincial program designed to make it easy for anyone to give fishing a try. On the West Shore, two fishing supply stores have stepped up to take part in the rod loan program organized by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. “There was no reason why we wouldn’t take part,” said Coltan Whitman, an employee at West Shore Fishing Centre on Hoffman Avenue. The 22-year-old has been an avid angler for much of his life and served on a halibut boat off the northern B.C. coast. “Personally, (sharing his love of fishing) is a huge part for me,” Whitman said, explaining that anyone who wants to try fishing can come in and borrow a rod and tackle box for one week. A credit card or small deposit is all that’s needed. At Wise-Buys Fishing Supplies, which opened eight-weeks ago on the Island Highway, the ideal of the rod loan program fits neatly with the focus of the family owned business. “My take on fishing, I think it’s a lifeskill,” said

Kimberley Milligan, program coordinator for WiseBuys. Milligan, who admits her brother Bill Zaalberg is the fishing expert in the family, said the store wants to attract customers who are trying fishing for the first time. They don’t want anyone to feel intimidated about asking basic questions about getting started. They haven’t yet loaned out any fishing gear but Milligan said she has had a few nibbles. One woman she spoke to was recently widowed with two young sons. She had been into fishing as a child and was taking tentative steps to get back into it for the sake of her boys. The rod loan program offered her the chance to do it without committing to spending a lot of money. Of course, both fishing suppliers also know that encouraging people to try fishing is the best way to hook a potential new customer. At the Hoffman Avenue store, Whitman recalls two boys who borrowed a rod and tackle box because they weren’t sure if they afford the gear. After angling at area lakes for a week, Whitman said the boys found the money to buy their own rods so they could keep fishing all summer.

Kimberley Milligan, program coordinator at Wise-Buys Fishing Supplies, holds a rod and tackle box available for people interested in borrowing gear to try fishing.

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.

GOLDSTREAM NEWS GAZETTE - Wednesday, August 8, 2012

House prices down slightly for West Shore real estate Kyle Wells News staff

Prices for West Shore real estate are down slightly from this time last year, though the market is generally stable, suggest statistics released last week. As is typical in summer, real estate sales throughout Greater Victoria were slower in July than in June. “It appears like it’s a really good buyer’s market at the moment,” Susan Dunn, managing broker of real estate firm DFH Westshore. “It’s a bit of a pricesensitive market. Sellers have to be aware that there’s some adjustments that are going on in pricing. But the number of sales that have taken place this year so far is identical to what has taken place last year. So it’s stable, a good stable market.” Langford had the highest number of single family houses sold on the West Shore for July with 42, the second highest for any municipality in Greater Victoria after Saanich East. In the same month last year, 30 Langford homes sold. Despite the number of sales, however, the median price of the houses sold was down about $100,000 from the previous year, sitting at just over $504,000. Condominium sales were down substantially for Langford, with this year’s nine sales compared to last year’s 19 for July. The median price for con-

dos was down too, by around $45,000, sitting at $245,000 for 2011. In View Royal there were nine houses sold in July, five more than the year before, worth a total value of $4.7 million. View Royal’s median price was down too, by about $150,000 from the year before, at $546,000. Colwood saw 18 house sales, worth a total of $8.7 million, up from 13 sales the year previous. Sales of Colwood condominiums and townhouses remained steady from the year before at three and two, respectively. Prices for Colwood stayed relatively stable across the board and were up by around $45,000 for the median price of condominiums. Four Metchosin houses were sold, down one house from one year before. Prices were down slightly. Total MLS sales for Greater Victoria for July were 523, exactly the same for the period in 2011. The value of those sales amounted to roughly $3.2 million dollars more this year than the last. Dunn said it’s difficult to predict where the market is headed but said living in an area as sought after as Greater Victoria is always going to be a positive influence on housing prices and sales. “Everyone in Canada would love to live here. It’s like the Hawaii of Canada, is what I always call it,” Dunn said. “We’re very fortunate for where we live and people want to move here.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

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@goldstreamgazette.com or fax 250-478-6545.

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.

View Royal fire hall the right decision for town

I was appalled when I read Act 1 of “Curtain Call” (Aug. 1). The Isabelle Reader Theatre is not just a “school” theatre, despite its location. It is a “community” theatre, as evidenced by its usage by various groups during the year. I understand it is the best equipped small theatre on Vancouver Island, in part owing to Roger Traviss supplying some technical equipment at his own expense. Without the firm guidance of a technical director like Traviss this theatre will likely be destroyed. A group to which I belong has used this theatre for many years. We tried another school venue once but the results of not having a competent technical director present during our performances was most unsatisfactory. The enthusiastic amateurs who were supposed to support us were not up to the task. I urge SD 62 to reconsider their cost-saving termination of Mr. Traviss. Jack Poulter Langford

Assuming the numbers from View Royal town hall were correct and the actual cost of the fire hall would be an extra $100 to $150 per household per annum, than she should be happy. Sounds a lot easier on the pocket book. However I calculated my average after reading another writer’s letter who somehow figured out that the 4.5 per cent interest will cost the rate payers $6 million on top of the $8 million principal. Therefore I stand by my $200 figure considering the information I have from reading this newspaper. The 10,700 projected population for View Royal is just that: a projection. And whimsical at best. Did it occur to you your town hall might have motive to low-ball the cost per household or that maybe Colwood town hall might not want to participate in the fire-rescue partnership you propose in your letter? You think $8 million is a lot to replace a fire hall, think what it will cost 10 or 20 years from now. You can only work with the fire hall you have now for so long. Andre Mollon Langford

Drinking not the main point of a concert

Generic drugs the right move for politicians

Anyone else notice that the people complaining the most are those who never made it to the beer garden? Maybe if your need for booze is so strong stay home, eh? Cookie Taylor Metchosin, BC

Recently on the news I heard that Canadian premiers plan to band together to bulk buy generic drugs. Great idea. According to the report, the cost difference between here and in the U.S. is considerable. Should the proposal actually get past political prattling and achieve savings of half the difference I’ll be impressed. Should our cost be lowered beyond that I’ll be surprised and perhaps be prepared to revaluate my naysayer attitude toward political pledges, even if only modestly. Given measurable success in that venture, rather than, as in the past, just throwing more money at the Canadian

Fire hall numbers hard to keep track of Re. “Property tax rates in View Royal leave little room for fire hall,” Aug. 1 In all honesty I do not understand what Kim Saladana is whining about.

I would also like to touch on Ms. Saladana’s claim that existing residents will bear the full cost of the new building and other impending projects. There is a major new development proposal in process for North View Royal. This project has committed a $1 million cash contribution to the fire hall and on build out will generate some $500,000 in municipal tax revenue. Regardless of what may happen down the road in terms of fire service, View Royal will always need a building within its boundaries to meet acceptable response times. The current building has served us well but is now antiquated and insufficient for a modern day fire department. Interest rates are at record lows and the construction costs are lower now than they were five years ago. It is time to make this much needed investment in our fire department and our community. Coun. David Screech View Royal

health delivery system, a group should be formed to delve deeply into other system processes in search of pooling or other tangible savings. Staffing costs are notable and worth evaluation, in particular those within the system’s layered hierarchy. As for frontline folk I’ve met in hospital, those usually first targeted for such reductions, I’ve found them to be pleasant, effective and worthy of every dime they’re paid. Don Wilkes Langford

Deficit is Liberals fault, taxpayers’ burden In the latest provincial budget reports, finance minister Kevin Falcon said that “the province ended the fiscal year with $1.84 billion deficit, almost double the budgeted amount, largely due to $1.6 billion in HST repayment to Ottawa.” Well, who’s fault is this? The ones at fault are those who came up with the whole HST idea. I’m sure they got big bonuses because of that. What makes me upset is that the ones who will be scrapping the HST will get even bigger bonuses. It would be a good idea for anyone that works for the taxpayers, to give us a report showing what they’ve done for us, on a monthly basis. Let them tell us why they think they deserve all the high wages, perks and bonuses. If you ask the police, they will tell you exactly, minute by minute, what they did on their shift (and they’re not even being payed as much.) So far, they’ve created a huge deficit in the budget due to wrong decisions. It sounds like very few of the chosen executives (by who?) are truly dedicated to their jobs, and the rest are just takers. Stefan Mieczkowski Langford

of other calls through our Town, including medical aid calls and motor vehicle accidents on our busy roads. They contribute to our community in a way that is immeasurable in terms of dollars and cents and they are also responsible for fire protection on the Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations lands. We have an automatic aid agreement already with Colwood and our Emergency Services personnel are fully integrated. View Royal residents have this exceptional level of service at an extremely reasonable cost. Last year, View Royal’s total firefighting bill was just over $1 million. Neighbouring Esquimalt’s was $3.6 million and neighbouring Colwood’s was $1.8 million. The suggestion that we should consider offering View Royal a lesser degree of service in return for some fictional savings is, frankly, just illogical.

A Goldstream moment Brittany Lee News staff

Two young boys sit on a picnic table at Goldstream Provincial Park, laughing as they soak up the sunshine. The image, taken by Jennifer Callioux, was chosen as this year’s winner of the Goldstream Provincial Park photo contest. “We just felt it depicted Goldstream in itself,” said Tracey Bleackley, manager of the Goldstream Nature House. “It’s a very classic picture of two kids enjoying themselves ... getting out and enjoying nature.”

The judges were looking for a photo that captured Goldstream as a family-friendly place, she said. The winning photo portrayed Goldstream as youth-oriented. Judges also based their opinions on composition and colour. “The quality of the picture was just fantastic,” Bleackley said. “It’s just a beautiful picture.” More than 100 photos were submitted for the contest, which ran from January to mid-July. Callioux is a local photographer and owner of West Coast Wonders Photography studio in Langford. For more information about the photo contest, see Naturehouse.com editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Two breakneck speeders caught in one morning on the Malahat Kyle Wells News staff

People who speed on the Malahat are risking their lives and the lives of others, police say. Officers with the Integrated Road Safety Unit caught two motorists speeding excessively on the morning of July 31, on a highway known for its windy curves and occasional serious crashes. A 57-year-old man from Cobble Hill was caught driving his motorcycle at 132 km/h in the 80 km/h zone on the Bamberton Hill section of the highway, heading towards the Split Rock look out.

Police say the man, who had been stopped for speeding on the same stretch of road earlier this year, was charged with excessive speeding and issued a fine of $368. His motorcycle was impounded for seven days. Later that morning, police pulled over a 19-year-old man with a Novice (N) sign driving 130 km/h in the 80 km/h zone near Goldstream Park. The Nanaimo teen’s Chevrolet truck was impounded for seven days and he was issued an excessive speeding ticket of $368. Because he is a Novice driver, the man’s licence status will also be reviewed by the Office of the Superintendent of Motor

Vehicles. Police are asking people to slow down on the Malahat, and all roads, and are warning drivers that officers will be out cracking down on speeding. “This type of aggressive driving on a windy, very busy highway is a recipe for disaster. Motorists need to remember that this highway is not designed for these types of high speeds and can easily lead to a catastrophic crash,” unit Staff Sgt. Frank Wright said in a press release. “We will continue to aggressively enforce the speed limit on the Malahat and remove dangerous drivers from the highway.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

FREE courses for all non-grad students and adults

WestShore

• To register call 250-391-9002 for an appointment with our academic advisor • Complete a personal learning plan • Textbook deposit may be required

Centre for Learning & Training

250-391-9002

WestShore Centre is the school of choice for over 3000 residents. What are you interested in learning? What would you like to change for your future? Come and join our growing Westshore family. WestShore Centre is a thriving part of School District 62, providing academic courses, grade 12 completion and workplace training since 1986.

What Is Distributed Learning? If you haven’t given Distributed Learning a try, then now is the time to explore your potential as a learner! Distributed Learning (DL) allows everyone to have access to their education anywhere and anytime. Through the flexibility of learning outside of the traditional classroom it allows you to learn at a distance from your teacher whether you are working at home, you are attending another school or you are in a mobile phase of your life. At WestShore Centre we offer Distributed Learning courses to students in grades 10 to 12 or for adults who are: returning to upgrade for graduation, improving their academic status for registration at a post secondary school/college, improving their skills for the career they have now or for those wishing to be lifelong learners. It is not always feasible for learners to take time away from work, families or other studies to gain the education they desire. That is why the Distributed Learning model works so well for so many people and why it is now one of the fastest-growing

forms of education in the province of British Columbia. At WestShore we are able to offer you a full range of courses through the DL model. Distributed Learning offers an engaging learning environment with access to our incredible WestShore teaching staff. The majority of our courses are offered on-line in computer-based environments; however, we also have paper-based courses if that suits your learning preference.

The Future is at WestShore We have 5 outstanding teachers, who are teaching the Futures Program at WestShore. The grade 9 cohort is taught by Michelle Bond (teaching all subjects), the grade 10 cohort is shared between Devon StokesBennett (English and Socials) and Dawn Anderson (Math and Sciences) and the grade

11 cohort is shared between Tanya Berg (English and Socials) and Dermott Crofton (Math and Sciences). This program of choice utilizes the newest blend of technology and education available. The students are afforded many hands-on experiences with new and emerging technologies while working to complete their grade curriculum. Students in this program stay as a cohort so that they are able to build strong relationships with each other and create a vibrant learning community. The energetic staff works hard to ensure an excellent blend of the academic, social and emotional growth for each student. The students who emerge from the Futures Program leave with more than excellent experiences from being in a modern learning environment. They also have strong core academic skills, understand their strengths as a learner and are able to work well individually or in a group. This program creates an excellent core platform for their future careers and studies. If this sounds like the program for you, please contact the school and we will provide you with more details about this exciting way to learn.

HOT TICKET The Amazing Spider-Man

NEWS GAZETTE

One of the world’s most popular characters is back on B.C.’s biggest IMAX screen. The Amazing Spider-Man: The IMAX Experience opens Friday, Aug. 10 at 8 p.m. for a limited engagement. Advance tickets are available at imaxvictoria.com or at the Royal B.C. Museum box office, from 9:30 a.m. until the start of the last show every day.

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

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

IN BRIEF

Bantam girls take gold in nationals

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.

Edward Hill 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

Tigers net bronze in bantam B lacrosse

Edward Hill/News staff

Pat Harris, 48, played Canada's first national ultimate championship in 1987. 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

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,”

Local news. Local shopping. Your local paper.

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.

speculating on the cause of death, Tucker said. “Right now we’re not providing that information.” 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 the VicPD at 250-995-7654, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). 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 Shiskoff 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 carriages, 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 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 in the area. “She was in the back seat just holding on for dear life.” The woman 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 was uninjured. VicPD Spokesman Mike Tucker said the matter will be dealt with through insurance companies. dpalmer@vicnews.com
