UVic on path toward fall strike Labour board to rule on essential services after negotiations fail Kyle Slavin News staff

University of Victoria students may be greeted by picketing support staff when classes return in early September. Last month, mediation between two unions – CUPEs 917 and 951 – and the university on essential service levels failed. Three days of hearings (Aug. 21, 22 and 24) have been set for both parties to plead their cases to the Labour Relations Board before it adjudicates essential services and staffing levels. “(UVic) came with a long list of jobs they deemed essential,” said Doug Sprenger, president of CUPE 917. “I can’t be specific. Let’s just say our list of (essential jobs) was short, and their list was long.” Kane Kilbey, UVic’s associate vice-president of human resources, said in a July 20 notice posted online: “It continues to be the university’s desire to reach a negotiated settlement at the earliest possible opportunity. We remain hopeful that this can be achieved without a major disruption.” The two CUPE unions, which represent some 1,500 non-teaching jobs such as tradespeople, food service staff, childcare workers, and office and library staff, are negotiating in concert with one another. They have both been without contracts since March 31, 2010. Students won’t face disruptions in the classroom, but could find limited cafeteria or library services, depending on essential services levels set by the labour board. Sprenger says they want to respect students’ education as much as possible, but noted they’ll be providing information to students in September on what to do when faced with a picket line. “We think that students returning to the University of Victoria have a very strong interest in getting this labour dispute resolved, and feel it’s an important time to

University of Victoria paint shop employees Len Ashmore (with paint sprayer) and Rob Barton (with ground glass) repaint crosswalk lines on Ring Road as they get the campus ready for the new school year. Unions representing UVic employees remain far apart from UVic management, and can’t come to an agreement on essential service levels, let alone a contract. resolve it,” Sprenger said. “It’s a time when all eyes are on the university and students anyway, regardless of any disruptions.” Loree Wilcox, CUPE national servicing rep, told the News last month the unions and UVic were “too far apart” for any negotiation progress to be made. According to CUPE, there remain nine areas of dispute between the union and the employer, including job security, benefits and inflation protection.

Late last week, CUPE B.C. said in a press release, “The B.C. Liberals are (fast-tracking) a new plan to slash jobs and money from B.C.’s already hemorrhaging college and university budgets.” CUPE says the province’s administrative service delivery transformation project could mean privatization of union jobs at post-secondary institutions. “It appears the plan is to be implemented for the 2012-13 school year. What is not

clear is exactly how many jobs are at stake,” the press release reads. A spokesperson from the Ministry of Advanced Education who asked not to be identified wrote in an email that CUPE’s concerns are premature. “Neither the government nor the institutions have any predetermined idea of how savings and improvements will be achieved,” the spokesperson wrote. kslavin@saanichnews.com

SAANICH NEWS -Wednesday, August 15, 2012

COMMUNITY NEWS IN BRIEF

Scammer tries to imitate water dept. A scammer claiming to be with the District of Saanich is calling residents in an attempt to steal credit card information. Saanich police say one incident was reported Saturday by a man who was phoned by someone claiming to be from the Saanich water department. “The caller stated that the credit card used to pay the man’s municipal utility bill had been compromised – and requested alternate credit card information in order to pay the man’s water bill,” wrote Sgt. Scott Treble in a release. The resident did not provide any info to the caller. Valla Tinney, Saanich director of finance, says the municipality would never call residents asking for personal information over the phone. “We don’t store any credit card information, so we would have no need to phone and get new information,” she said. “What the police are saying is bang on – just never give that information (out to anyone) over the phone.”

Saanich PD arrest man at gunpoint Saanich police arrested a 21-year-old man at gunpoint early Sunday morning after receiving a call about an agitated, intoxicated man who was waving around two knives. Police were called at 1 a.m. to the corner of Burnside and Harriet roads after a group of people standing in front of a convenience store was approached by the man. The group ran inside the store to call police, and the man fled. The man was located 15 minutes later when he ran out of a nearby building. He was arrested at gunpoint. Police seized a folding utility knife and a long steak knife. He is expected to be charged with weapons-related offences.

CRD warned on stalling sewage treatment Daniel Palmer News staff

Capital Regional District directors who hinder progress on the upcoming secondary sewage treatment project could face steep fines – even jail time – under new federal regulations. CRD staff presented a report on new Fisheries Act regulations that warns directors if they intentionally do not meet the 2020 deadline for the project, they could be fined up to $500,000 or face two years in prison. “That’s for every individual incident, and each day the violation occurs is a separate incident,” said Denise Blackwell, chair of the CRD’s liquid waste management committee. The federal wastewater regulations, brought into effect last month, identify nearly 400 communities across Canada that are considered high risk for their lack of secondary sewage treatment. They must comply with the regulations by 2020 or face the steep penalties. “The federal government believes

we’re their number one target for not meeting these regulations, and that’s why they’re giving us $280 million,” Blackwell said. The federal and provincial governments have agreed to fund twothirds of the Capital Region’s $782million project, while the CRD will foot the remainder. Despite the funding, some directors continue to challenge the high risk designation, citing a lack of scientific data. “Virtually every credible marine scientist in the area has said ... ‘there’s not a problem here, this isn’t necessary,’” said CRD director Vic Dermon, a Saanich councillor.

“The prime minister recently said a pipeline (for oil) should be determined by science. Well, then so should Victoria’s sewage situation.” Critics have also been lobbying the CRD to request an exemption under the regulations and avoid the huge public expenditure. The Association for Responsible and Environmentally Sustainable Sewage Treatment (ARESST) purports the current system of pumping screened sewage into the Strait of Juan de Fuca is environmentally sound. But CRD staff wrote in their report that exemptions to sewage

Sewage timeline ■ Aug. 22 – Sewage committee meeting, where CRD staff will report on site selection for the planned biosolids energy plant. ■ September – An external consultant will begin the search for seven qualified sewage commissioners, and CRD staff will begin meeting with companies interested in putting forward requests for qualifications. ■ November – Newly appointed sewage commission will assume control of the project from the CRD. ■ January 2013 to April 2014 – Create and issue request for proposals for regional sewage treatment, and award a company with the design and construction of McLoughlin Point wastewater treatment plant.

treatment are not possible, except for northern Canada. Former federal environment minister David Anderson told the News that the regulations should be adjusted to allow regions like Greater Victoria the chance to utilize its unique geographical advantages for sewage treatment. “If the federal government decided to have the same snowremoval requirements for Victoria as in Quebec, we would call that ridiculous,” Anderson said. When the CRD passes a bylaw later this month, a process will begin to appoint a panel of seven experts who will run the project. While no CRD directors will sit on the panel, the bylaw will contain explicit language to ensure financial accountability, Blackwell said. “Any changes to the budget in any way, shape or form have to come back to (the CRD).” The panel should be in place by November. Its first task will be to solicit requests for qualifications from interested companies for the McLoughlin Plant design and construction. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Rithet’s Bog has its invaders, the usual suspects – blackberry bl/ bushes, reed canarygrass and broom. A frustratingly aggressive variety of invasive cattail can grow three metres tall, and has spread like weeds through part of the wetlands to choke out waterfowl and native plants alike. The 28-hectare conservation area in Saanich is even home to a band of feral cats, which tend to menace the ground-nesting birds. But what is making a group of volunteer conservationists nervous is the periodic croak of an American bullfrog, one of the most dreaded of all invasive species. Rithet’s Bog Conservation Society president Russ Pym said he and other volunteers have heard the call of the bullfrog over the past few years, and

a few have been captured. It’s likely they’ve migrated from Elk and Beaver lakes. A saving grace for the bog is its tendency to dry up in the summer. Bullfrogs, known for being voracious eaters of anything they can get their mouths around, need year-round water bodies for tadpoles to hatch and grow. “I would expect except for (the dry season), we would have a breeding population of bullfrogs,” Pym said. “If we have a couple wet years and open water that doesn’t dry up, that might change. There’s no reason they can’t breed there.” American bullfrogs have gained a foothold in Elk and Beaver lakes and a number of lakes on the West Shore. In response, over the past eight years the Capital Regional District and partner municipalities have hired biologist Stan Orchard to eradicate the frogs

Rithet’s bog isn’t there yet in terms of hiring frog hunters, but Pym said if bullfrogs manage to have a breeding season in the bog, they would be difficult to eradicate. “The best you can hope is for controlling the population,” he said. Rithet’s bog is held up as the last significant peat bog on the lower Island, but Pym notes there isn’t much peat left at all – he calls it a bog-forest. But it is home to native amphibians such as red-legged frogs and Pacific chorus frogs, and scores of birds, all which could be hopping, squawking meals to invading bullfrogs. “The bullfrogs are definitely a concern to us,” he said. “It’s a problem we definitely need to keep an eye on.” editor@saanichnews.com

Councillor aims to create culture award arts, culture and heritage in Saanich. “It’s a way of publicly saying thank you for the amount of effort that someone has put in to something,” said Derman, who chairs the arts, culture and heritage committee. “I think it’s essential that you take the people who are really making a difference in your community, and you do that public thank you.” A recommendation to endorse the awards was expected to be discussed by

Kyle Slavin News staff

Saanich currently honours its most benevolent residents by bestowing upon them the title of freeman of the municipality. Green-conscious leaders get recognized by Saanich through the municipality’s annual environmental awards. But Coun. Vic Derman now wants to give recognition to the people and groups who make a significant impact on

council at Monday night’s council meeting (Aug. 11). Derman supplied a list of potential award categories, including Youth Artist or Performer, Heritage Preservation Award and Cultural Enrichment “Builder” Award. “The committee does have a budget to promote the arts, culture and heritage,” he said, but added the committee would like to seek sponsorships for the awards. He also mentioned the possibility of launching a new

gala event where the awards could be presented, alongside a night of entertainment. “That hasn’t been decided yet, but it’s been floated out there and, I think, it would be another great event that the committee puts on,” Derman said. If council approved the recommendation, the committee would now be tasked with solidifying award categories, eligibility criteria and a budget. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Grant boosts marine ecosystem education Roszan Holmen News staff

First, a gift of a new building will ensure the Gorge Waterway Nature House has a facility able to stay open during the winter. Now, a grant for educational programming will help ensure the structure, to be built in Esquimalt Gorge Park, has enough activity to warrant keeping the doors open throughout the school year. The Rotary Club of VictoriaHarbourside has given the World Fisheries Trust – which operates the nature house – a $10,000 grant.

"It will allow us to carry on the seaquaria-in-schools program with much more confidence, especially reaching inner-city schools that can't afford it," said WFT executive director Joachim Carolsfeld. "We've been struggling to keep it going," he said, adding few funders see environmental education as important anymore. The education program teaches kids about local marine ecosystems. It has installed permanent seaquaria – equipment that can include an aquarium – in 35 schools and brings students from other schools to the centre on field trips. The grant

money will be used in part to buy equipment for the Nature House. In June, the Vancouver Island Construction Association chose the nature house as its legacy project. The new building will be bigger and have heat, allowing it to stay open during the winter. When the Rotarians got the news, they invited Carolsfeld to submit his wish list for programming. "We were so impressed with the wish list, we gave them more money than they even asked for," said Maureen Duncan, representing the club. "We like to fund

projects that benefit the whole community. I'm hoping it is going to put Esquimalt on the map for the Greater Victoria area." rholmen@vicnews.com

Staff followed protocol under the circumstances, said Scott Hartman, Esquimalt director of parks and recreation services. “We’re trained in observing these things. It’s unfortunate that it happens, but all of our staff are trained to respond accordingly around child protection,” he said. “Everyone, because of what happened (Wednesday) night … staff were extra diligent.” The man was not known to police or on the Esquimalt recreation “watch list.” Hartman said the suspect was not a rec centre member, but was a member of the Leisure Involvement For Everyone program, which provides discounted access to recreation facilities in the region. Police are not releasing ages of the three children or details of the incidents. “If there are other victims, we want to speak to them,” Lindner said. “When a kid has confidence in his or her mom or dad to go forward and say this is what happened, that’s huge. I commend all the parties involved.” Thompson is charged with three counts of sexual interference of a person under the age of 16. He is due back in court on Sept. 5. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

Darryl James Thompson, 47, made his first appearance in court last Friday (Aug. 10) after Victoria police arrested the View Royal man in response to reports that three children were inappropriately touched at Esquimalt Recreation Centre. After a pair of incidents were reported late last Wednesday, pool staff identified a potential suspect Thursday (Aug. 9) based on a general description. Staff witnessed what they felt was an inappropriate act and called police. The man was removed from the pool area and was arrested around 2 p.m. on Thursday. “Staff identified him, brought him out of the pool and contacted our people immediately,” said Insp. Keith Lindner of VicPD’s west division, adding he was impressed with staff response. “When they knew he was in the building they called us.” The Thursday incident followed a report Wednesday (Aug. 8) evening after two children told their respective parents that they’d been inappropriately touched during outings at the Esquimalt pool.

COMMUNITY NEWS IN BRIEF

Hikers help police locate missing woman Saanich police are crediting astute hikers for helping them locate a missing woman last Thursday night in Mount Douglas Park. Police responded after receiving a call about a missing woman and spoke with hikers who had seen her earlier. The hikers information helped the officers quickly locate the woman in the park. She was unharmed. “The hikers were of great assistance in this missing person investigation, and led to a successful outcome,” said Const. Aaron Thompson.

Motorcyclist injured in Shelbourne collision A Saanich motorcyclist was thrown from her bike on busy Shelbourne Street Saturday after being cut off by a left-turning vehicle. The collision happened around 5 p.m. when the southbound Harley Davidson was passing in front of University Heights shopping centre. A left turning Toyota Camry blocked the path of the motorcycle. The two collided, ejecting the 49-year-old female biker. Police say she received a mild concussion. She was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The 74-year-old male driver of the Camry was issued a $167 fine for failing to yield to the motorcycle.

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Range of Vision If you have normal vision, you should be able to see objects clearly whether they are near or far away. When your eye doctor examines your eyes he will measure your vision at long distance as well as close up. The measurement for distance vision is usually taken at 20 feet. A test for near vision is usually taken at the normal reading distance or about 16 inches. Near vision is used for reading, sewing, eating and any other activity in which the object you are looking at is within arms length. Intermediate vision includes computer screens, music on a stand, cards on a table etc. Distance vision is considered anything beyond that point. This would include looking at television or at people across the room, even though the distance is relatively short. You need to see clearly wherever you happen to be looking. Straining your eyes to try to see objects clearly can often cause headaches and other discomfort. If you think you may need glasses or contact lenses or a new lens correction, see your family optometrist for an examination.

OUR VIEW

Ask voters if they want an oil pipeline P

erhaps Premier Christy Clark sees a battle with Alberta – over revenue from allowing the Enbridge pipeline to use B.C. to link Alberta oil with tankers on the Pacific Ocean – as the last hope to rally voters in time for the spring 2013 election campaign. It stands to reason, since the B.C. NDP has staked the opposed-to-pipeline position and the B.C. Conservatives have claimed the supportwith-conditions spot. However, by demanding that B.C. receive oil royalties from profits made from what flows through the pipeline, Clark is simply catering to those who already support the Enbridge proposal. Those opposed have said loud and clear it is not about money, but about inevitable environmental damage. Grand Chief Edward John of the First Nations Summit political executive summed it up in a scathing press release, when he said the B.C. Liberal government has missed the mark, stressing “B.C. First Nations’ traditional territories and pristine environment are not for sale.” John reminded Clark of the Supreme Court of Canada’s stance that there is a legal requirement for governments to “consult and accommodate” First Nations regarding any and all land and resource development initiatives in their respective territories. If First Nations cannot be convinced to allow a pipeline to be constructed through their territories the pipeline simply will not be. With Clark’s demand having been rejected by Alberta Premier Alison Redford, with First Nations still on the sidelines and with strong opposition among the public, perhaps it would be wise for Clark to add a non-binding referendum question to the May 14, 2013 general election ballot. A simple question – Are you in favour of the Enbridge pipeline proposal? – could produce results that tell the government of the day exactly which direction it should travel on this pipeline proposal.

Government Employees’ Union has protested, despite assurances that their jobs will continue. B.C.’s burgeoning craft beer industry has looked to Alberta’s all-private model and predicts higher costs. The B.C. Liberal government has been on the defensive from the start, with the NDP pointing to the paper trail of lobbyists with an apparent inside track. It’s great politics, but it matters little to consumers in an increasingly competitive but heavily taxed business. Another new regulation took effect this summer, creating a $525 fine for adults serving minors, on the job, at home or as a bootlegger. Parents who provide booze for their underage children are exempted. Previously, penalties applied only to licensed establishments. If the issue really is public safety and teen binge drinking, the key job for government is to regulate sales effectively. Once that is done, no justification remains for government liquor sales. tfletcher@blackpress.ca Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com.

LETTERS Allow Discovery Island access Clipped horse indicates need to the responsible beachgoers to examine tour bus industry

Garbage littered streets tarnishes region’s beauty

Re: Songhees limit access to Discovery Island (News. Aug. 3) For many years my family has accessed Pandora Hill and Seabird Point in Discovery Island Park from the Ministry of Transportation (MoT) access road for the lighthouse, which starts at the boathouse on the north side of Discovery Island. In my opinion, this is the safest boat access to the park. Unfortunately, on the CRD’s Natural Areas Atlas, the MoT road access is shown running through IR3 for about 0.5 km. This “trespass” through the Songhees reserve presumably closes the MoT road to the public for accessing the park. I fully understand and support the Songhees in their wish to safeguard their lands from those who litter, light beach fires and otherwise defile the land. These are problems faced by many beachfront property owners in the CRD. In my experience, a minority of beachgoers are problematic. As a goodwill gesture to those who are respectful of the foreshore and land, perhaps the Songhees First Nation would consider allowing public access to the park via the MoT access road, and temporary moorage of small boats at the boathouse beach. Sandy Argue Saanich

Is it just me or is there really an ever increasing amount of trash tossed all over the place? When I walk on the roads near my home on Saanich Road, I see fast food containers, household goods, plastic bags, garden waste and shopping carts all over. Downtown also seems to have litter everywhere. If it wasn’t for the DVBA street cleaners and the Victoria road cleaner, we’d be knee-deep in trash. We have a beautiful city, let’s not spoil it. Let’s not rely on others to clean up after us. At least that’s what I was taught. John Ballard Saanich

Re: Tourist taken on wild ride after horse clipped by bus (News, Aug. 8) If the horse was “clipped on its shoulder by a tour bus,” then where is the logic in city councillors “looking into the incident to determine whether further restrictions should be put on the industry”? The Clydesdale horse in question is by nature happiest at this job. Contrary to the Friends of Animals group, work horses would not prefer to be treated like a lap dog. Moreover, horses pulling the carriages through Victoria appear to be extremely well cared for, otherwise professional veterinarians would speak out. Perhaps it is the riders of these carriages who need to apply some common sense, grab hold of the reins, and realize that the horse is made more afraid from “the scream.” What is tragic is that many tour buses go unchecked in regards to driving infractions, damaged low tree branches, traffic disruptions, and the crowding of cyclists -- not to mention the belting out of noxious and highly toxic fumes. So, the facts, as stated in this article, only confirm one logical conclusion: look into the incident to determine whether further restrictions should be put on the tour bus industry. Allison Star Saanich

Crime statistics don’t tell the whole story Re: Saanich among safest places in Canada (News, Aug. 8) Bragging about low crime in Saanich is a political fool’s game. It is obvious from encounters while bicycling, the demands for traffic-calming devices, and the existence of an organization seeking lower speed limits that many voters believe Saanich is not safe enough. Police try, but don’t have the funds to put feet on the street watching for the deliberately dangerous drivers. Speed limits are no use without enforce-

ment, many drivers are not slowed by traffic-calming devices. As well, people should be cautious of statistics. Saanich has adjacent Victoria whose downtown hosts boozers and violent people from Saanich. And there’s always a question of people not bothering to report crime when they don’t see police as responsive or the reporting process is too bureaucratic. Keith Sketchly Saanich

Francis Drake globe could help rewrite history of B.C. Daniel Palmer News staff

A former provincial heritage minister is irate after the Royal B.C. Museum backed out of an agreement to exhibit evidence that, if true, would upend B.C.’s history books. For the past three years, Sam Bawlf has been lobbying the government to digitize and display a Molyneux globe, a 415-year-old map created after Sir Francis Drake’s voyage around the world from 1577 to 1580. Bawlf purports the globe proves Drake was the first European to visit what is now British Columbia in 1579, nearly 200 years before Captain James Cook dropped anchor off Vancouver Island. “Call it a 400-year-old Google Earth,” he said. Bawlf, a former Victoria-area resident now living on Salt Spring Island, spent three years securing provincial and federal commitments to digitize the globe – currently held by a private organization in London, England – for Canadian scholarly study. But the museum backed out of the agreement in January, citing a lack of academic scrutiny on the controversial evidence. “I absolutely agree with Mr. Bawlf that this needs to be presented to the Canadian public,” said Jack Lohman, the museum’s CEO. “But we’re not in the business of authenticating academic research.” Bawlf contends he didn’t ask the museum to authenticate his work, which is presented in his

A 415-year-old map held in London depicting coastal B.C. could prove Sir Francis Drake was the first European to travel and map to this part of the world, predating Captain James Cook. 2003 book, The Secret Voyage of Sir Francis Drake. If Drake was the first European to reach this part of North America, as Bawlf claims, it could be a sticking point in aboriginal land treaties throughout the coastal areas. The date of first contact with First Nations is a key reference point to all claims of aboriginal rights and title. “When you move that date by 200 years, it’s very significant,” Bawlf said. He noted it would be impossible for such accurate detail to be depicted on Molyneux’s globe without direct observation of the coastline by someone familiar with measuring latitude and compass bearings. Bawlf’s theory has yet to gain a foothold in common history

and needs to establish credibility through academic peer reviews, but has been praised by several established geographical scholars. In response to Bawlf’s requests earlier this year, cultural development minister Ida Chong authorized half of the $30,000 required by Library and Archives Canada to digitize the globe. But without RBCM support, the federal archive has backed out of the agreement. “So now we have the money sitting there ... and we just want to get on with it,” Bawlf said, adding the remaining $15,000 has been put up by a private business. Even with the money, the project can’t go ahead without being facilitated by Archives Canada. Chong’s office confirmed $15,000 had been issued and said the RBCM would “assist Mr. Bawlf in his project to digitize and to bring the globe to Victoria in the future.” Bawlf wants the province to intervene and force the museum to present the globe and his evidence, but OFF the ministry did not Receive ONE indicate it would take further action. “The public have When purchasing another of equal value.

Mind your knitting Preparations for 2012 Fibrations festival sewed up Kyle Wells News staff

It’s the only festival in Victoria that’s guaranteed to have you in stitches. This is the second year for the grassroots Fibrations fibre art festival, running Sunday, Aug. 19. It’s a gathering of fibre artists of all types to sell their products, talk shop with enthusiasts and fellow practitioners and give demonstrations illustrating the process behind the craft. Last year’s inaugural event was borne out of the sudden cancellation of the Victoria Fibre Festival. A group of fibre artists quickly stepped up to organize an event to replace it, with little time but lots of enthusiasm. “We had very little time, about a month,” co-organizer and Knotty By Nature fibre arts store co-owner Ryan Davis said. “It was really fun, we just all pulled together, did a bunch of work and made it happen. It went amazingly well. There was just a great amount of excitement about it.” This year’s event is capturing the same spirit, with all the organization done by volunteers and a focus on making it artistfriendly and widely inclusive. Costs for vendors are kept low and all the money raised, aside from money earned by the vendors,

goes right back into the event. “Last year it just had the best vibe in the air. … It was quite special,” Davis said. “A lot of people sold out of their stuff that they brought, so people were very excited about how well they did.” The cost to vendors to participate is a donation of a $35 retail value item that is then put up as a prize at the event in a toonie raffle. The money from the raffle pays for the event. The idea is to keep costs low and participation high so more people, including hobbyist fibre artists, can participate. About 35 vendors took part in last year’s event and this year organizers have already had to cut the registration off at 50 vendors. Davis said that if you can name a fibre art, it will be at the event. Woven, knit, needle-felted and other finished products will be in abundance. This includes practical items such as scarves and hats, but also more creative display works. Supplies will also be plentiful. Wool, knitting yarn and all the other tools of the trade needed for fibre art will be for sale. A couple of local hand-dyed knitting yarn producers will even be there selling products.

taugh him how to use a taught loom about eight years ago and he “took to it.” “It’s very meditative and relaxing and you make beautiful things,” Davis said. There are many reasons people take to fibre art, either producing it or enjoying the outcome. “It’s practical a lot of times. It’s art and it’s wearable at the same time, so that’s kind of nice,” Davis said. “What I love about fibre art is that it has an organic element to it, almost Don Denton/News staff like it’s a combination Ryan Davis, co-owner of Knotty by Nature fibre arts of control and chaos. juggles the details as one of the organizers of Fibrations, Because every fibre a festival celebrating fibre artists. behaves differently and they can interact with Food vendors will also be on-site, includeach other.” ing a merchant who sells knitting needleFibrations takes place in the St. Ann’s shaped chocolate.

Maria Manna, left, April Gislason and Maureen Washington are The Ladies of Gospel, who will perform at Hermann’s Jazz Club Aug. 19 as a fundraiser for Mercy Ships Canada.

Lord have mercy Joined voices are manna from heaven for charity Maria Manna, Maureen Washington and April Gislason will rock your soul with classic Soul Train and Motown Gospel in a fundraiser for Mercy Ships Canada this Sunday. Featuring Thomas Kinzel on piano, Joey Smith on bass and Damian Graham on drums, these great ladies of jazz are all accomplished singers and recording artists in their own right, and combined, they create a night to remember. Jazz lovers will delight in listening to these three extraordinary singers together on stage as they create an evening of music featuring some of jazz music’s most classic

ballads and standards. Manna exudes professional confidence and a magnetic charm that is woven into her performances, from swing to ballad and jazz, while Washington combines the sultry soulfulness of Etta James with the jazzpop flair of Holly Cole and Jann Arden. To top the group off, from a powerful ballad to hard-edge rock, Gislason can sing it all. Proceeds from the concert will go to Mercy Ships, which operates hospital ships serving some of the poorest developing nations of the world. The Africa Mercy is the world’s largest non-governmental hospital ship, and is dedicated to the continent of Africa. Mercy Ships programs promote health by empowering developing nations and by meeting the urgent surgical needs of the world’s

forgotten poor. Since 1978, Mercy Ships has performed more than 61,000 lifechanging and life-saving operations such as cleft lip and palate repairs, cataract removals and lens implants, orthopaedic procedures, facial reconstruction and obstetric fistula repairs. It has treated more than 539,000 patients in village clinics and trained 5,770 local health-care teachers. Tickets for the Ladies of Gospel are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Registration deadline is Saturday Aug. 18. Tickets are available online at regimojo.com/registrations/68/ forms or call Hermann’s at 250388-9166. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. For more information on Mercy Ships go to mercyships.ca. llavin@vicnews.com

the Best Engagement Story?

The Centennial Square crowd is reflected in sunglasses worn by Victoria cycling hero Ryder Hesjedal during a ceremony honouring Hesjedal and his accomplishments.

Victoria celebrates cycling sensation Ryder Hesjedal Daniel Palmer News staff

Celebrity sightings are common occurrences in Victoria, a city known for letting stars relax and enjoy themselves in relative peace. But hometown heroes are a completely different story. On Friday, cyclist Ryder Hesjedal returned to a city still basking in the glory of his Giro d’Italia win, where he became the first Canadian to take top spot in a Grand Tour. On Aug. 10, hundreds of fans lined Douglas Street and filled Centennial Square to welcome back Hesjedal, who recently represented Canada in the London Olympics. One enthusiastic cycling couple even honoured the athlete by naming their five-week-old son after him.

Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin declared Ryder Hesjedal Day in the city and unveiled custom-designed bike racks to honour the cyclist’s achievements. “Ryder is a wonderful example of the passion and determination of our local athletes,” Fortin said. “I can’t think of a more fitting tribute.” Hesjedal was visibly moved from the support, taking the time to speak with the crowd and to give back to local cyclists. “I want to be able to give back to the sport that has given me so much,” he said. “To represent Canada internationally, I know how hard that is, and the sacrifices that you need to make along the way. I know every little bit helps in achieving your dream.” Hesjedal’s next races will take place in Quebec City on Sept. 7 and Montreal on Sept. 9.

Nomads ready for Canadian ultimate championships this week

O

verlooking View Street, Dave Pettenuzzo’s office is well-decorated with national and world championship trophies. The trophies belong to the Nomads. This week Pettenuzzo is strapping on the cleats one more time as his team, the reigning world-champion Nomads, is competing in the masters division (over-33) of the Canadian Ultimate Championships, which run Thursday to Sunday on the grounds of Landsdowne middle school, Topaz Park, St. Michaels University School and Royal Athletic Park. The 45-year-old has been playing ultimate Frisbee since 1990, and is a patriarch of the sport not just on his team, but in Victoria. “It’s been a long, long journey for the Nomads,” Pettenuzzo said. Ultimate tournaments allow a maximum of 28 players per roster, and the Nomads always fill the quota, he added. “Some are newer to the team, but most of the guys go way back to the early days in the 1990s. And it’s more than a team. We’ve truly evolved into a lifelong brotherhood.” Pettenuzzo joined the Nomads when he arrived here in 1993 and has since inherited a leading role with the team. He also founded the Victoria Ultimate Players Society, organizers of Victoria’s summer league, and current hosts for this Canadian Ultimate Championships. The tournament is especially big for the Nomads, winners of multiple national and world titles in the open and masters (over-33) divisions. In 1997 the Nomads placed seventh at nationals here in Victoria. The majority of the team pulled double-duty as hosts for that event. They’d like to win it here on their home turf, because if the Nomads have a home, it’s here. “We’re also getting older,” Pettenuzzo said. “When a player retires due to their age, we say ‘they’ve gone to pasture.’ I’ve been thinking about it myself. A few guys have been talking about it.” As a husband and a father to two boys, 12 and 8, it’s never easy for Pettenuzzo and the core of 20-odd teammates to get together for a tournament. But it’s about much more than that, he says. “From the time Dave Martin founded this team in 1990-91, it’s been a tribe mentality,” he said, “a special bond as brothers.”

Shamrocks back to Coquitlam tonight The Victoria Shamrocks came up with a crucial overtime win over the Coquitlam Adanacs on Sunday to even the Western Lacrosse Association semifinal playoff series at two games each. Corey Small scored his fourth and fifth goals of the game in overtime, and Mitch McLaren scored an empty netter as the Rocks won 11-8. It’s the Shamrocks’ first win in Coquitlam this season. Jeff Shattler ended the game with seven assists. The two teams played Game 5 in Victoria on Tuesday. Results were past press time. The Langley Thunder defeated the

Coincidentally, Mellouli had already won bronze in the men’s 1,500m freestyle, beaten by Vikes silver-medallist Ryan Cochrane. Vikes rowing alumni Doug Csima and Gabe Bergen of the men’s eight, and Darcy Marquardt and Rachelle Viinberg of the women’s eight, all won silver.

Seeing triple Fitzgerald triplets traded to Grizzlies Kyle Wells News staff

They say good things come in threes and that's just what the Victoria Grizzlies are banking on with the Fitzgerald triplets. Identical triplets Myles, Leo and Gerry Fitzgerald all came to the Grizz from the Prince George Spruce Kings in a multiplayer deal that sent David London, Cam Lawson and Coltyn Hansen to Prince George. The move comes as the Grizzlies rebuild under the guidance of new general manager and head coach Bill Bestwick.

“Skill, finesse, heart, talent, determination are foundations and criteria that we take very seriously,” Bestwick said. “When we measure what these three players will bring us individually and collectively, they are three of the best ’93 birthdated players in the entire British Columbia Hockey League.” There were some laughs at the press conference announcing the acquisition as Bestwick, who coached the triplets before with the Nanaimo Clippers in the 2010-11 season, misidentified one of the identical siblings. Leo said that he and his brothers are excited to be joining what they see as the team to beat next season. “(Our team has) lots of speed,

lots of skill, we've got some gritty guys, we've got almost the whole package.” Inevitably, questions arose about the brothers abilities playing together on the ice. They brushed off references to the Sedin twins or if they had any sort of psychic connection to one another. “I get tired of it, but I understand why they ask,” Leo said. “We’re triplets, it’s pretty rare to be playing in Junior A as triplets. I think we’re probably the first.” Training camp for the Grizzlies begins Aug. 20 at Bear Mountain Arena, with an exhibition game at home on Friday, Aug. 24, against the Cowichan Capitals. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

PROMOTIONAL FEATURE

Comedy for Cancer raises $5,000 for Tour de Rock Music and laughs to benefit pediatric cancer research Comedy lovers and music enthusiasts flocked to Club 9one9 at the Strathcona Hotel on July 31 for a terrific night of entertainment, all for a good cause. Comedy for Cancer, an event to support Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock rider (and Black Press reporter) Kyle Slavin, raised $5,000 for the worthy cause. Tour de Rock raises money for pediatric cancer research and sup-

port programs like Camp Goodtimes, a summer camp for kids with cancer. All acts that night provided topnotch entertainment. Thanks to Jason Lamb, Mike Delamont, Kirsten Van Ritzen, Wes Borg, Natalie North, Mike Edel, Kytami, Auto Jansz and Andrea June for their amazing, crowd-pleasing performances. Tour de Rock, now in its 15th year, is a two-week bike ride that sees

a select team of police officers and reporters cycle more than 1,000 kilometres from Port Alice to Victoria. This year’s Tour runs Sept. 22 to Oct. 5. With less than six week to go before the start of Tour, Kyle has raised half of his $15,000 fundraising goal. If you’re interested in donating to Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, visit www.is.gd/TourdeRock.

New fleet commander at CFB Esquimalt Royal Roads reconnects to military Daniel Palmer News staff

The commander of Canadian Fleet Pacific at CFB Esquimalt is moving on to bigger waters. Rear Admiral Peter Ellis relinquished command Thursday to take on a new role in Ottawa as deputy commander with Canadian Joint Operations Command. He has been in his current role since June 2010. Taking over the Pacific fleet is Commodore Scott Bishop, who arrives from

India Canada Cultural Association presents

Canadian Fleet Atlantic. Bishop’s credentials include experience with NATO operations, most recently enforcing the 2011 no-fly zone over Libya. Bishop will be responsible for the operation and readiness of the Pacific fleet, comprised of a destroyer, five frigates, one replenishment ship, six maritime coastal defence ships, two submarines and eight training tenders. Real Admiral Bill Truelove, commander of Maritime Forces Pacific, officiated the changing of command.

Kyle Wells News staff

Royal Roads University (RRU) and Canadian Forces College (CFC) have entered into an agreement that will give more opportunities for post-secondary education to military officers. Canadian Forces College, located in North York, Ont., is the training ground for senior officers in the armed forces.

The new agreement sees RRU’s master of arts program recognize the joint command and staff program at CFC. This means graduates of the officers program can enter RRU’s master of arts in interdisciplinary studies already having earned 12 credits – one third of the requirements for the degree. “This agreement builds on the rich heritage of leadership and excellence at Royal

Roads since its time as a military college,” said RRU president Allan Cahoon. “Not only do we recognize the value of the (CFC) courses, but also the strong leadership, managerial skills and experience the graduates bring to the table.” Flexibility is a key component of the agreement, because students will still be active members of the military. Coursework may be completed online, or with short-term oncampus residencies. Students will also have a choice on how to complete the degree, with the options of a BIKE major project, thesis or coursework exclusively. “The Royal Roads 98 3 298 curriculum in lead3 00 5 99 ership, emergency 299 management, human security, peacebuilding and conflict analysis ffor our new permits (CFC) graduates to extend their studies in key areas,” Brig.-Gen. Craig Hilton, in today’s paper! commandant of the CFC, said, “thereby enhancing their credentials as military and national security professionals.” kwells@ goldstreamgazette.com
