Elevated temperatures and stiff breezes won’t spike the record charts, but will increase the danger for wildfire outbreaks. Temperatures in Nanaimo are predicted to hit highs of 30 C today and Friday (Aug. 16-17), but won’t come close to breaking past records. Trevor Smith, Environment Canada meteorologist, said the Aug. 15, 2010 record temperature of 33.1 C eclipsed Wednesday’s predicted high of 29 C. Predicted highs of 30 C for today and Friday also fall far short of the record 34.5 C set for those days in 1977. “On Vancouver Island you can get pretty big ranges from the water to inland, so Port Alberni’s going to be more like 33, 34,” Smith said. Outflow winds from the B.C. Interior Wednesday and today raised temperatures in the Fraser Valley and some Lower Mainland areas in the mid 30s, but all that hot air will be cooled somewhat by the Strait of Georgia before it hits the Island. What those winds will do, though, is dry out the landscape, raising wildfire danger ratings for most areas on the south B.C. coast. “It tends to be hotter weather when we have outflow winds,” said Marg Drysdale, Coastal Fire Centre spokeswoman. “So rapid drying of fine fuels is going to be happening overnight, so it’s going to dry very quickly over the next couple of days.” The Nanaimo area was still under a “high” fire danger rating as of Wednesday morning. Temperatures will cool over the weekend when there will be a 30-per cent chance of showers Saturday night through Sunday morning. ◆ See ‘POTENTIAL’ /4

Tricia Reynes, lifeguard at Westwood Lake, returns to shore after checking on swimmers jumping off the far side of a swim float. The safety check was also an opportunity to take a break from the heat Tuesday. Temperatures are predicted to reach close 30 C tomorrow and Saturday (Aug. 17-18), combining with winds that will create dry conditions raising the risk for wildfire outbreaks.

Nanaimo city council gave city staff permission Monday to release a public tender for renovations to be started at city hall. With the city’s new annex nearing completion at 411 Dunsmuir St., the main city hall building at 455 Wallace St. will undergo renovations beginning in January to accommodate staff from the city manager’s office, human resources and payroll, all of whom were formerly housed in the old annex. Those renovations are expected to cost $800,000 and are part of the $15.7-million price tag of the new annex. The new tender is to complete work from a previously planned and separate renovation project that will see a $150,000 fire suppression system, alarms and smoke detectors added to city hall, as well as $130,000 to replace the existing oil-fired boiler. “That work was going to happen anyway,” said Brian Clemens, the city’s director of finance. “So we’re basically rolling all of the renovations into one. All of the work needs to be done at the same time.” Clemens said no new money was being added to either the total cost of the annex or the work to be done through the tender. As part of the renovations, a two-stop accessibility lift will be installed at city hall to make it easier for people with mobility issues to access the second floor. That $50,000 improvement will be funded through the federal government’s Enabling Accessibility Fund, and is scheduled to be completed by March 31, 2013 in order to meet deadline for the grant money. Money for the fire suppression safety work and new oil-fired boiler will be drawn from general revenue. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

RDN inventories industrial land, needs for future The Regional District of Nanaimo wants to know how much industrial land is available and what’s needed for future development. To help discover the information, the district began an industrial land supply and demand study. Pa u l T h o m p s o n , RDN manager of long range planning, said the survey, by consultants Urbanics Consultants Ltd. and HB Lanarc Golder, will help the RDN move toward its goal to enhance the region’s economic resiliency. He said people contacted the RDN over the years with concerns about industrial land. “There were some concerns that there might not be enough land or land in the right places or whether we have enough land to meet demand in the future,” said Thompson. The survey is underway and the district hopes to have it completed by early next year. Its goals are to evaluate the demand for different types of industrial land both from a regional and local perspective, to create a more resilient region that is less reliant on fossil fuels to reduce pollution and

Council loses appetite for soup BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo city council showed its distaste for the practices behind shark fin soup Monday, unanimously passing the first two readings of a bylaw that would ban the trade, sale or distribution of shark fins or their derivative within city limits. Shark fin soup is a traditional Chinese delicacy, often used at banquets or weddings to flaunt wealth. A bowl of soup can cost $100, while shark fins can fetch up to $800 per pound. Because shark meat is almost worthless, sharks are often caught in a net, de-finned and then tossed back into the ocean by fishermen. The practice is banned in Canadian waters, but countries like China, Spain, Costa Rica, Japan and others have no laws prohibiting finning. According to staff officials, only one retailer in Nanaimo is known to offer shark fin soup, and it has agreed to come into compliance should a bylaw pass third and final reading. The delicacy is prevalent in municipalities like Vancouver and Richmond. Anthony Marr, representing the Vancouver Animal Defence League, said the practice of finning sharks kills an estimated 70 million

to 100 million sharks annually, with many of those species considered endangered. “I realize Nanaimo does not have a lot of shark fins but Nanaimo is in a very strategic position to lead Vancouver Island in this charge,” said Marr. “Cities are rising one after another to ban this barbaric practice and I can say that because I’m of Chinese descent.” Already Port Moody and Coquitlam have shark fin bans in place, while Surrey, Burnaby, Langley, North Vancouver and other B.C. municipalities are considering it. Five U.S. states – Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington and Illinois – already have bans in effect, as do eight Ontario municipalities, including Toronto. Toronto city council has established a maximum fine of $100,000 for retailers caught selling shark fins. Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan called the practice of finning “an absolute travesty” and a “pathetic and disgraceful thing to do” while Coun. Diane Brennan referred to it as “absolutely inhumane”. The first two readings of the bylaw passed unanimously. Marr added that sharks are slow to reproduce, and harvesting their fins at such

a prolific rate will result in an imbalance in the ocean’s ecosystem as more shark species disappear. “At least one-third of the shark fins that arrive in Canada are from an endangered species, and that is a very conservative estimate,” he said. “Some people argue that if we wipe out sharks, an apex predator, there will be more fish for humans. That just shows a total ignorance of the ecology of the ocean.” Unlike Toronto’s steep fines, however, under British Columbia’s Local Government Act municipalities here – Vancouver being exempt as it has its own charter – have limited power to impose such penalties. If found not in compliance with the bylaw, should it pass, nominal fines would be imposed with the ultimate

N EW M EN U

penalty being termination of the retailer’s business licence. “As far as compliance goes, the first step for staff would be, if we found out anything was happening, would be to talk to the business owner and if they didn’t comply we would have council involved,” said Ted Swabey, general manager of development services. “The method to enforce this would involve going to court so it’s not something you just want to jump into. In 90 per cent of the cases we gain compliance with businesses when there is something that doesn’t work.” There are several federal international and international laws that prohibit shark finning, including: Canada’s Wild Animals and Plants Protection International and Interprovincial Trade Act (1996); the Fisheries Act, which prohibits finning in Canadian waters; a United Nations declaration stating finning anywhere is illegal; and the Convention of the International Trade of Endangered Species, which states that no endangered or threatened species can be traded internationally. Council is expected to pass the bylaw later this summer. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

No one was hurt, but southand northbound traffic in both directions was backed up on the Nanaimo Parkway for about an hour Monday after a travel trailer flipped in the southbound lanes south of the Mostar Road intersection. Nanaimo RCMP attributed the crash to “wind wobble” – fishtailing caused by air turbulence between the trailer and a transport truck it was passing. No charges are pending against the driver who was driving at the posted speed as he was passing the truck.

to maximize efficiencies and minimize waste generated by industries. Thompson said part of a sustainable economy is making it attractive for business to move here. Ensuring there is enough industrial land in the right places will make it more attractive for businesses to operate in the region. A survey of industrially zoned land was completed for the RDN’s Regional Growth Strate g y Review in October 2007. The majority of industrial land is in Nanaimo, representing 57.8 per cent of the RDN’s overall designated industrial land totalling 617.6 hectares. Electoral area A (Cedar, Cassidy, Yellow Point and South Wellington) makes up 11.4 per cent, totalling 121.7 hectares. Nanoose has no designated industrial land. Industry, businesses, gover nment stakeholders and community members are invited to contact the regional district to provide input for the study. To provide comments, please call 250-390-6510 or e-mail growthmanagement@ rdn.bc.ca. Study results and periodic updates will be posted on the RDN’s website, www.rdn. bc.ca.

Theft victim tag-teamed by suspects Nanaimo Mounties are warning the public about thieves who use a distraction ploy to steal credit cards. The heads-up follows an incident Aug. 6 at about 4 p.m. after a woman used her credit card at a grocery store in Port Place shopping centre. She loaded her groceries in her car, got in the vehicle and set her purse down beside her. A man came up and asked her for directions to Qualicum Beach. The woman recognized him from when he was standing in the checkout line next to her in the store. After a few minutes of conversation, a second man came up and spoke a few words in a foreign language to the first man, who put his map away and both men walked into the mall. The woman discovered her credit card was missing when she got home and cancelled the card, but was told the card had already been used seven times, totalling $3,000 in purchases, at different locations in Nanaimo by the time the cancellation went through. The card was used twice at Port Place and five times at Woodgrove Centre. The victim was not held responsible for the purchases. Police said they believe the suspects are of eastern European descent. Both men wore suit jackets and had dark complexions and might also have a female accomplice. She is described as approximately 5’6” tall with dark hair. The same men might also have committed a crime in Saanich on Wednesday when a woman had her wallet stolen under similar circumstances. The suspect in that incident was described as a stocky Caucasian male, 20-30 years old, wearing a navy jacket and ball cap with a red brim. Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrime stoppers.com.

Province after island road access BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

The province is ensuring public access to the roadway leading to Gabriola Island’s Green’s Landing Wharf by securing its legal status. The roadway crosses onto private property, and while residents have used it for decades, its legal status was never resolved. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has been negotiating with the landowner since early spring to ensure public access. Kirsten Pedersen, district manager of Vancouver Island for the ministry, said the negotiations with the landowner are ongoing but the ministry is in the process of finalizing them. “This has solved a

long-standing problem and we are grateful that we can fully use Wharf Road as a public roadway,” said Jack Schick, chairman of the Green Wharf Preservation Society, in an e-mail. He said members of the society are “quite happy” that both the federal and provincial government recognized the importance of having a good, wellmaintained roadway for the public. The road, commonly referred as Wharf Road, was not surveyed as a dedicated public road, but the ministry is committed to maintaining the road for safe and reliable access for residents to the wharf, said Pedersen. She said the province recognizes continued public access to the federallyowned Green Wharf

is important to residents, especially Mudge Island residents. The wharf is an important link between Gabriola and Mudge islands for daily commuting and emergency situations. Schick said residents have used the access road that connects Green’s Landing Wharf to South Road on Gabriola for years, and there is evidence of the road being used by the public starting in 1879. Last year the Regional District of Nanaimo contemplated taking over control of Green’s Landing Wharf when the federal government announced in 2010 that it sought to divest itself of the property. Before the federal government could transfer the water lot

it needed to resolve some requirements, which included consulting with First Nations and the landowner for road access. Howard Houle, RDN director for electoral area B (Gabriola, Decourcy and Mudge islands), said the RDN looked at taking over Green’s Landing Wharf in the past, but there are currently no plans to apply for control of the wharf. A report on the implications of taking over the wharf is needed before any decision is made, he said. reporter3@nanaimobulletin.com

Local elected officials should get seats on the B.C. Transit board and have more say on changes that affect their local service, a review of B.C. Transit operations has recommended. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom appointed a review team in March after complaints that the provincially-appointed B.C. Transit board was

making costly changes without consulting the communities whose fares and property taxes cover more than half the cost of transit service. Joe Stanhope, chairman of the Nanaimo Regional District, was on hand with Lekstrom to release the report Tuesday. Stanhope said the recommendations of the review team are “exactly what we wanted. “There were some problems, and the basic problems were communications,� he said. “It’s all about governance. It’s fundamental changes need to happen so that local government is recognized as a real partner and I think the recommendations of this report do that.� Stanhope raised the alarm in 2011 after B.C. Transit notified local officials of a doubling of management fees, after municipalities had adopted their budgets for the year. Nanaimo also protested a plan to move

An independent review of B.C. Transit has recommended more say for local governments on capital expenditures, budget changes and land use decisions.

some of the community’s new buses out and replace them with older ones. The provincial government pays 47 per cent of costs for B.C. Transit service in partnership with 58 local gover nments. B.C. Transit has a target to double its ridership to 100 million passenger trips by 2018. When he ordered the review, Lekstrom ruled out any increase in the provincial share of funding. O n T u e s d ay h e declined to comment on specific recommendations until they have been reviewed by local communities and discussed at the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention this fall. Recommendations include: a local government advisory panel to consult on system-wide capital expenditures; local gover nments should share information on long-term tran-

sit budget changes, land use and zoning decisions; the province should amend the B.C. Transit Act to allow multi-year operating agreements; and B.C. Transit should report to municipalities twice a year ridership, cost per capita, passengers per capita and other perfor mance measures. Manuel Achadinha, B.C. Transit president and CEO, said the recommendations by the panel will help shape the future of B.C. Transit and make it better. “We have proven that we are operating efficiently and effectively under the existing governance model,� he said. “We are confident that any changes to the governance model will ensure that we can continue to provide efficient and effective transit service to our customers and to taxpayers.� Aside from an

intent to improve communications and strengthen the partnership between local and provincial gover nments, neither Stanhope or Lekstrom could pinpoint specifics about how those levels of government will change the ways they conduct business over future B.C.

Environmental destruction takes toll on health

Preventing illness is the best way to get health-care costs down. So why aren’t governments doing more to protect the environment? We know environmental factors contribute to disease, especially contamination of air, water and soil. Scientists are now learning the connection is stronger than we realized. New research shows that 60 per cent of emerging infectious diseases affecting humans – those that rapidly increase in incidence or geographic range – start with animals, two-thirds from wild animals. Lyme disease, West Nile virus, Ebola, SARS, AIDS … these are just a few of the hundreds of epidemics that have spread from animals to people. A study by the International Livestock Research Institute concludes that more than twomillion people a year are killed by diseases that originated with

can all be linked to a warming planet. And economic and political upheaval brought on by climate change can damage public health infrastructure, making it difficult for people to cope with the inevitable rise in sickness, according to a study in the Archives of Medical Research. Research also shows warming ocean waters are increasing the incidence of waterborne illnesses, including those caused by toxic bacteria in shellfish. This is costly to the economy as well as to human health and survival. The World Bank estimates that a severe influenza pandemic could cost the world economy $3 trillion. Environment Canada says air pollution alone costs the Canadian economy billions of dollars a year because of increased health-care costs. A key solution, according to the One Health Initiative, is to look at the links between human, ani-

Stewards clean up debris in Chase River

It’s well known that fish don’t need bicycles. They also don’t need shopping carts, litter, furniture, car wheels or any other form of human-made debris. That’s why the Harbour City River Stewards are teaming up with Nanaimo Recycling Exchange, South End Community Association and Vancouver Island University to clean up parts of the Chase River this weekend (Aug. 18-19). And they’re looking for volunteers to help. According to a recent student report from the resource management officer technology program at VIU, foreign material is creating a problem for fish and their habitat. Among the worst areas are bridges crossing the river at Howard,

Bruce and Park avenues, as well as the trail behind John Barsby Secondary School and Harewood Centennial Park. According to Dan Fox of VIU, there were 14 shopping carts located in the river, and some of them are solidly entrenched in the sediment, making it difficult to remove them. “Summer low flows are a perfect time for this type of activity,” said Fox. “Removing debris now means that it will not be flushed downstream or out to sea during the fall freshet.” The Chase River is home to resident rainbow trout and coastal cutthroat trout and provides a significant amount of habitat for chum and coho salmon fry, according to Fox. In 2011, approximately 400

coho and 3,000 chum returned to the Chase River to spawn, providing one of the strongest returns in recent history. Cleanup crews meet at Robins Park at Park Avenue and Fifth Street at 9 a.m. Saturday and cleanup locations will include under the bridges at Park, Bruce and Howard avenues and on Seventh Street, as well as the culvert at the end of the alleyway across from the intersection of Sixth Street and Georgia Avenue, among others. Interested participants should bring bug spray, rubber boots and gloves, as well as a lunch. For more information, please e-mail Fox at Daniel.Fox@viu. ca.

mal, and ecological health and to manage our activities in a sustainable and holistic way. The U.S.-based initiative is bringing experts in human, animal, and environmental health together to study these links. Another promising area of research is natural capital evaluation. Although it’s difficult, if not impossible, to put a dollar value on the numerous services nature provides, leaving them out of economic calcula-

tions means they are often ignored. Forests and green spaces filter water and store carbon. Urban green spaces provide cooling and protection from storms. And, ecosystems in balance help to protect us from disease outbreaks. Destroying these systems and replacing them with human-built infrastructure or paying for the consequences often costs much more than profits gained from exploitation. With the world’s

human population now at seven billion and growing, and the demand for technology and modern conveniences increasing, we can’t control all our negative impacts. But we have to find better ways to live within the limits nature and its cycles impose. ◆ Written with contributions from David Suzuki Foundation editorial and communications specialist Ian Hanington. www.davidsuzuki.org r

EDITORIAL

Shark fin laws a federal issue There is no doubt that the act of finning sharks for the purpose of creating culinary delicacies, or any other derivative, is unacceptable if not disgusting. Around the world, an estimated 70 million to 100 million sharks are caught annually, de-finned and returned to the ocean to suffer a horrible death. What’s more, the sheer volume of destroying these apex predators will result in the endangerment of many species as well as throw the ecology of the ocean off. Slowly, municipality by municipality, possession or retailing of shark fins is being banned. Nanaimo made steps to impose a bylaw Monday night to do just that. But is this really an issue for municipalities to tackle? Probably not. While dealing with the issue at the municipal level will likely create awareness, under B.C.’s Local Government Act the most severe punishment that can be imposed is the termination of a business licence. If there is a growing distaste for shark fin products in the public realm, this issue needs to be addressed through federal law. Our municipal laws simply have no teeth. Under Canada’s Fisheries Act, finning sharks is illegal in Canadian waters, so it doesn’t make sense to allow an import that is illegal here to arrive on our shores. One third of all shark species are considered endangered, so it’s safe to assume shark fins being sold are those of endangered shark species, as there is no way to track fins and from which species they came from. If there is to be any pressure on the leading producers of shark fins like China, Costa Rica, Spain and Japan, punishment must come through international channels, not municipalities.

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 own under-age 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. ◆ Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Olympic opinion ill-informed To the Editor, Re: Olympics show a better world, Opinion, Aug. 9. I was surprised by the editorial of Aug. 9. At the very least, I would suggest you are ill-informed or, at best, Pollyanna-ish. You stated “The Olympic Games are a two-week celebration of youth, goodwill and ultimate effort ‌ For two weeks, the world converges in one place, without politics, religion or greed.â€? Really? You are unaware that the International Olympic Committee refused to allow a moment of silence to commemorate the 11 Israeli athletes gunned down at the Munich Games 40 years ago by Arab terrorists, but were OK about observing a moment of silence for British people blown up by Arab terrorists July, 2005 in the London Underground? You are unaware that U.S. president Jimmy Carter, in 1980, imposed a boycott of the Moscow Summer Games over Russia’s Afghanistan policies. Sixty-five countries did not participate. Russia and 13 other communist nations then boycotted the 1984 Games in Los Angeles. South Africa was banned from the Olympic Games from 1964 until 1992 because of politics. At these 2012 Games, one athlete was not permitted to compete as an athlete from South Sudan; he could compete only if he represented both Sudans. Do you need more examples? I suggest that the Olympic Games you describe exist only inside your own head. Theo Klewansky Nanaimo

local stores? I doubt it, and have to wonder just who buys this stuff. Is this just a case of the ‘Emperor’s new clothes’ wherein the sellers and/or buyers convince themselves that there is a real difference between what the market sells and what can be bought in town? This was my first visit but it will be my only one. I saw nothing that I wanted, but if I had, I doubt I would have bought it anyway. There was nothing there that I could not buy in town for a lot less. Gordon Jackson Nanaimo

Honest people pay Cost of market food for criminal acts too dear for shopper To the Editor, To the Editor, I heard about the farmers’ market held in Cedar each Sunday in front of the Crow and Gate and decided to visit simply because I had not been out there for years. The market was reasonably well attended and there was a variety of edibles and other things on offer. The prices, however, took my breath away: $2.50 for a pound of new potatoes, or a garlic bulb for $2.50. Contrast these prices with any of the stores in town. Perhaps the stuff on offer is fresher, and perhaps it is organically grown, I can’t say. I don’t think I saw any signs claiming this to be the case but perhaps the sellers would have said so if I had asked. Can the taste or nutrition really be so much better that it justifies a price of at least 300 per cent more than the

I recently witnessed a shoplifting that left me angry, frustrated and bewildered as to what I can do about it. Pulling into the nearly empty parking lot of a Nanaimo grocery store, I noticed a car in a handicapped spot and the driver sitting, obviously waiting for someone. A woman came out of the store, grabbed two large plants and loaded them into the open trunk of the car. It was when she put not only the two plants she had grabbed previously into the car, but several others that I realized there was no way she could have paid for all those plants without taking them into the store to have them scanned – they were different plants, different prices. Having filled the trunk, she closed it, then proceeded to grab several smaller

plants. I got out of my car, made a mental note of the licence plate number, and walked toward the store entrance. The thief, realizing she was being watched, hopped in the car, arms full, and they sped off. Inside the store, the staff was oblivious to what had just taken place outside. The floor manager was courteous, and thanked me for the licence number, but when asked if they had cameras outdoors, said he didn’t think so. I was annoyed with the whole episode, on three levels. First, I was shocked at the blatant gall of the thief and her accomplice, who obviously had jointly planned the heist. Second, if a store is going to have merchandise for sale outside, why wouldn’t it have cameras or security watching it? Does the staff just trust everyone is honest enough to bring the item into the store to purchase it? Or is it that the store management doesn’t care? The honest people will pay, and the price is marked up high enough that it will make up for those who choose to steal. And, I was annoyed with myself. Why didn’t I have the presence of mind to grab my cellphone and tape the heist? I just wasn’t mentally prepared for what I had observed. And why do I care, when it appears the store doesn’t? So the next time I complain about the price of groceries, I’ll remind myself someone has to pay for what others choose to take for free. Tim Weger Nanaimo

Communication manager a waste of taxpayers’ money To the Editor, Re: New manager communicates city’s issues to taxpayers, Aug. 14. With 23 years experience on Nanaimo council, 15 as mayor, it is safe to assume I am one of the two or three people most knowledgeable of the true need for a City of Nanaimo communications officer. There is absolutely zero need for such a disgusting waste of taxpayer’s money.

As I stated, when this was first suggested by Coun. Diane Brennan in December, taxpayers are fed up with wasting money on useless bureaucratic positions. Public relations flacks are the worst. People want answers from the people in charge (elected or appointed), not some PR idiot. Any publicly-funded body that has a PR or communications officer is

wasting our money. Fire them all. Any elected person needing a communications officer is either incompetent, lazy, hiding something or worse. Any council member voting for this nonsense has no sensitivity to the poor economy and the taxpayers’ anguish over waste in government. Gary Korpan Nanaimo

Reid on behalf of Breakfast Cereals Canada and offering a rare glimpse into the a.m. routine, mornings are indeed crunch time in Canadian households. Statistics show six in 10 moms and dads report that the tasks associated with getting their families and themselves out the door make for the most stressful time of the day. On average, the poll results reveal, it takes families 77 minutes from “get up” to “go,” with some harried parents reporting that it takes two hours – or more – to get out the door in the morning. Parents know the health benefits of a balanced, nutritious morning meal, from reduced obesity risk to better grades in school. But 64 per cent say the impact of this time crunch on breakfast – which often results in skipping the morning meal altogether – translates into guilt. The Morning Crunch Time “Thrival” Guide offers busy moms and dads everything they need to reduce the chaos of the morning routine. The guide provides easy, healthy breakfast ideas that can be made for the entire family in five minutes or less. For more information, please go to www. morningcrunchtime. ca.

Carolyn Iles, left, and Hollie Tarasewich, of the Harewood Neighbourhood Association, check out the Harewood Miners Community Water Park. The association’s next meeting is 6:30 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 21) at Georgia Avenue Community School.

Harewood neighbours excited by projects There are a number of new projects happening in Harewood, and it is a great time for anyone who lives, works, volunteers or attends school in the area to get involved. The next meeting of the Harewood Neighbourhood Association is Tuesday (Aug. 21), 6:30 p.m. at Georgia Avenue Community School, 625 Georgia Ave. On the agenda is planning for the annual general meeting in September. “Now is the time for new people to join their neighbourhood group,” said association president Heather Campbell. “We are looking for new energy, new ideas to help with new projects.” Nanaimo parks, recreation and culture is planning some significant improvements to Centennial Park at the corner of Seventh Street and Howard Avenue, and the city is undertaking the development of an Official Community Plan for the area.

It all makes for an exciting time for Harewood, said Carolyn Iles, association director. “We want to be sure HNA has enough people to be proactive in both new projects, and in continuing ongoing activities such as our popular Harewood Mining Community Water Park, Summer Playground Programs and Community School support,” she said. “Currently we don’t have enough people to be proactive in some areas, such as zoning issues, and new people have the opportunity to work on additional dreams for Harewood.” Harewood Neighbourhood Association is a communitydriven society that thrives on resident input. A yearly membership fee is $5. The group meets the third Tuesday of each month, from 6:30-8 p.m., in the Georgia House Portable at Georgia Avenue Community School.

the Departure Bay Kiwanis Water Park, the firefighters will be hosting kids aged two to 12 to an afternoon of water fun, including a massive slip-and-slide and water balloons, as well as activities, games, hotdogs and

fresh fruit. “This water party is a way for us to be out with the community, people can have some fun, and hopefully they can learn a few things on how to keep kids safe,” said Greg Finstad, local representative

for the B.C. Burn Fund. The majority of bur n injuries happen to children in their own homes, most prominently the kitchen and bathroom. Hot liquids are the No. 1 cause of burns in households.

Nanaimo Mounties are warning the public about thieves who use a distraction ploy to steal credit cards. The heads-up follows an incident Aug. 6 at about 4 p.m. after a woman used her credit card at a grocery store in Port Place shopping centre. She loaded her groceries in her car, got in the vehicle and set her purse down beside her. A man came up and asked her for directions to Qualicum Beach. The woman recognized him from when he was standing in the checkout line next to her in the store. After a few minute’s conversation, a second man came up and spoke a few words in a foreign language to the first man, who put his map away and both men walked into the mall together. The woman discovered her credit card was missing when she got home and cancelled the card, but was told the card had already been used seven times, totalling $3,000 in purchases, at different locations in Nanaimo by the time the cancellation went through. The card was used twice at the Port Place Mall and five times at the Woodgrove Center. The victim was not held responsible for the purchases. Police said they believe the suspects are of eastern European descent. Both men wore suit jackets and had dark complexions and might also have a female accomplice. She is described as approximately 5’6” tall with dark hair. The same men might also have committed a crime in Saanich on Wednesday when a woman had her wallet stolen under similar circumstances. The suspect in that incident was described as a stocky Caucasian male, 20-30 years old, wearing a navy jacket and ball cap with a red brim. Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.

FOUR FRIENDS head out on tour to make people laugh.

BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

Sometimes success is borne from failure. Abby Roberge couldn’t imagine anything worse than re-taking three courses he failed his Grade 10 year. He wasn’t interested in any of the subjects, so to keep himself busy, he started entertaining his classmates. Although his teachers were likely less than impressed that he used school as a comedy proving ground, his fellow students were suitably entertained. “That was the first time I thought I could do stand up,” he said. Roberge takes the stage at the Queen’s as part of the Wrecking Crew comedy tour with Alex Phillips, Matt Siegan and Nick Callas on Saturday (Aug. 18). The quartet met on the comedy circuit in Los Angeles, where Roberge said he performs about 15 times per week. He can’t get enough of the buzz from an entire crowd laughing at his social commentary. “It’s really addicting,” Roberge said. It’ll be Roberge’s second show in Nanaimo since leaving the city as a 20-year-old for New York to pursue stand-up comedy. He was last here as part of Bob Saget’s tour. Having the chance to meet comedians like Saget also offered the chance to learn from those who came before. What they told Roberge was what great comedians

Cameryn Moore’s new one-woman play answers the question often raised at the end of her last fringe theatre hit: how did you become a phone sex worker? Slut Revolution is the follow-up to Moore’s play Phone Whore, which she performed as a fundraiser for last year’s Fringetastic theatre festival. While both shows delve into all kinds of sexuality, Revolution is about Moore’s journey into self-acceptance by saying ‘yes’ to the good things that come along in life. “I call it the thinking person’s sex show,” Moore said. She performs Monday (Aug. 20), once again donating part of her proceeds to Nanaimo’s fringe festival. Revolution is autobiographical and is framed around a conversation Moore has with a man – a sexual partner – where she flashes back to previous experiences. Some of those experiences will be shared by others – an awkward first pickup line or getting caught getting off – and other experiences won’t. “The things I’ve done and talk about are not in everyone’s experience set,” Moore said. As such, Moore ends up ◆ SLUT REVOLUTION fundraising becoming a go-to play for Fringetastic at Vancouver person for those Island Conference Centre in the audience Monday (Aug. 20) at 8 p.m. who have quesTickets $14/advance; $19/door. tions about the Visit fringetastic.com. kinkier side of sex, particularly in cities she visited previously. In those cases, the conversations get deeper. “Word is getting out that I am a person you can talk about these things with,” she said. Moore is not a therapist, but often participates in discussions after the show. “People are just more comfortable talking to me,” she said. Fringe theatre is the natural arena for edgier content, where artists can experiment with topics and techniques and audiences are less intimidated by the spectacle of theatre, she said. However, discussions around Moore’s shows and the popularity of the erotic trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey doesn’t mean that people are more comfortable with sex or sexuality, said Moore. “Social change doesn’t happen that quickly,” she said. Slut Revolution is open to mature audiences only – 18 years or older. The show begins at 8 p.m. at Vancouver Island Conference Centre. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets $14/ advance; $19/door. Please visit www.fringetastic.com for tickets and information.

Mariners keep up with NCAA Demons

NORTHWESTERN STATE wins 89-71 in exhibition at VIU. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The VIU Mariners left their American visitors with a good impression of Canadian basketball. Vancouver Island University’s men’s hoops team lost 89-71 to the Northwestern State University Demons on Tuesday at the VIU gym. The Nanaimo team had the game tied 19-19 and brought it as close as 43-39 late in the second quarter before the visitors from Natchitoches, La., pulled away in the third. “VIU was very good. They played very good, they had a good crowd, everyone came out and supported them,” said Shamir Davis, Demons guard. “They gave us a good test early. We needed to run like this.” The game at VIU was NSU’s second exhibition of its tour; the NCAA Div. 1 team defeated Squamish’s Quest Kermodes 105-40 on Sunday. “Regardless of the opponent or the level of play, we still want to win, that’s the main priority,” Davis said. “Any gym you go into, you want to win.” He said his team did a better job at hitting its open shots and finishing its inside looks in the second half. The Demons also had to adjust to a more physical style of play than they expected. “Canadian basketball, I love it. I really can’t complain …

this is great,” Davis said. “We really need this early because if we can play through this contact, we can play down the stretch.” The Mariners, too, took a lot out of Tuesday’s matchup. “Guys came out, they played hard, they played unselfishly,” said Matt Kuzminski, coach of the VIU men. “I thought we communicated well which is going to be a big focus for us.” He said his players kept the game simple and didn’t seem to be overly intimidated against a higher-calibre opponent. M’s forward Greg Gillies said he was happy with everyone’s effort. “We had a good focus going into the game. We didn’t take it as just an exhibition, we kind of wanted to prove something,” he said. “It’s always nice when the States come in because you’ve never really played the competition before, you always think they’re better than a lot of teams up here. We wanted to just compete and give the best effort we could.” It resulted in a good game that helped make the travellers’ B.C. tour even more special. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said James Hulbin, Demons forward. COURT SHORTS … Gillies was VIU’s top scorer with 20 points, Jon Bethell scored 14 and Clayton Billett added 13. For NSU, Hulbin and Jalan West had 21 points each and Davis scored 15 … The Mariners face another NCAA Div. 1 team, the Cal State Northridge Matadors, on Wednesday (Aug. 22) at 6 p.m. at the VIU gym. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

There’s no tying in football, if the V.I. Raiders get their way. Nanaimo’s Canadian Junior Football League team is determined to do better following its most recent game, a 31-31 tie on Saturday against the Langley Rams. As the Raiders resumed practice Tuesday at Comox Field, the math was simple. Their tie earned them one point in the standings, half of what they wanted. “We’ve got to put in twice as much work to earn twice as much points,” said Matt Sawyer, Raiders receiver. “I think we’ll respond great because everyone isn’t satisfied with what happened and we all want to improve and we all want to get better and we all want to be winners.” Since the goal is always to win, Sawyer said, the tie felt like a loss. Raiders linebacker Jon Jones said the team takes the tie as a disappointment. “We didn’t play to what we feel we can reach, so every time you don’t play to the best of your ability, you want to go back to the drawing board and figure things out,” he said. “We’ll come back with some different ways in the game that we can do better.” It started with a good practice on Tuesday, said Raiders coach Matthew (Snoop) Blokker. ◆ See ‘JUNIOR’ /B4

HEISTERMAN WINS North America final in 800-metre race.

Three Nanaimo runners got to extend their track season with one more meet, and some sweets. Madison Heisterman, Amy Morris and Carter Higgins represented British Columbia at the Hershey’s Track and Field Games in Hershey, Pa. over the August long weekend. Heisterman won her 11-12year-old 800-metre race with a time of two minutes, 22.53 seconds. “With about 500 metres to go she passed the other kids and started trying to stretch it out,” said Tyler Heisterman, coach of the Nanaimo Track and Field Club.

◆ From /B1 The coach said players seemed willing to listen, which he said is important. “As much as our opponents, we still have focus on ourself right now,” said Matt Blokker. “We can spend all the time in the world drawing up what they’re doing, but if we don’t know what we’re doing, it really doesn’t matter. We’re still in a stage where what we’re doing is the most important thing and we’ve got to continue to do that.” Blokker pointed out that the Raiders have a lot of young players, a lot of new guys on defence and some new systems to adjust to. “So we’re a ways away, still, from being able to just play without having to think,” he said. “We’ve got to make sure that we get our guys up to speed so this game becomes easy.” After surrendering 31 points against the Rams, the Raiders’

defensive players need to concentrate on doing their assignments better, said Jon Jones. “All of us as a collective defence need to step up and not think everything’s going to be handed to us,” he said. “We’ve got to go out and make a name for ourselves as a new defence.” The Raiders were repeating the words “wakeup call”, and looking forward to getting right back out on their home field against the Okanagan Sun on Saturday (Aug. 18) and trying for a better result than a tie. “It was an eye opener. No one’s perfect,” said Dylan Chapdelaine, Raiders linebacker. “It’s not a bad thing. We’re going to just have to come out and show the fans what our true colours are. We’re going to have to come and ball out.” GAME ON … The Raiders and Sun kick off Saturday at 5 p.m. at Caledonia Park. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

PENTASTAR V6 boosts Sahara’s power, torque. BY NEIL MOORE

hree guys in business suits, picking our way through deep ruts, bumps and the occasional stream, while sitting high and dry in a mud-covered Wrangler. We must have been quite a sight – at least to the mountain biker we passed on the trail. But the Jeep’s iconic off-roader isn’t meant to stay clean, even if it means a slight detour on the way to the office from a company awards ceremony. I fortunately knew of one such off-road opportunity, and at least two of our crew were up for it. The third colleague was less enthusiastic, but seemed to warm up once he realized the driver may not bury us in a ditch after all. I won’t pretend the Jeep Wrangler is on par with most SUVs in terms of cargo capacity, handling and overall longhaul passenger comfort. It’s not that kind of vehicle.

The four-door, five-passenger Wrangler Unlimited Sahara boasts a more powerful engine for 2012. The Pentastar V6 delivers 40 per cent more horsepower and 10 per cent more torque than the one it replaces.

Still, it isn’t bad around town, and take it off the grid and there are but few vehicles that dare keep up with it. The Wrangler is purpose-built with the kind of standard and available underpinnings that

may not make it the ideal city cruiser, but allow it to crawl over rocks and logs, tackle gnarly inclines and ford rivers that would swallow most CUVs, SUVs and pickups. Indeed, the Wrangler comes “trail rated” right

out of the box. This Jeep designation means the vehicle has been tested for serious off road ability in several key areas: traction, ground clearance, manoeuvrability, articulation, and water fording.

All told, there are seven trim levels: Sport, Sahara and Rubicon – the two-door Wranglers – and their three ‘Unlimited’ (four-door) counterparts. All can be optioned up with a long list of dealer

The base two-door, although at home on the trail, is light on creature comforts. On the safety and handling front, it receives four-wheel discs with ABS and brake assist, hill start assist, electronic stability control, all-speed traction control and electronic roll mitigation. My Sahara Unlimited tester came complete with power windows and locks, air conditioning, 18-inch alloys, heavy duty suspension with gas shocks, tubular side steps, body-colour fender flares and additional brightwork both inside and out. The interior includes an upgraded audio system.

NORMAN CRANE June 1930 - August 2008

The moment that you died my heart was torn in two, one side filled with heartache, the other died with you. I often lie awake at night, when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it every day but missing you is heartache that never goes away Remembering the things we did not get to say I know how much you loved me, as much as I loved you No one can ever know I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain.
