Urgent plea As back-to-school time draws near, the food bank’s shelves are frighteningly barren Devon MacKenzie News staff

The Sidney Lions food bank is sending out an urgent plea as halfway through the month of August, they’ve found their shelves close to empty. “We’ve never, ever been so low on food,” said food bank administrator Bev Elder. “We’re at the point now where we have no cereal and no canned soup. Those are things we’ve never run out of before.” Elder is concerned that with September nearing there will be a severe lack of school-oriented foods like juice boxes and snack items. “I’m worried that going into September we’ll have to turn people away because we won’t have the things they need for their kids’ lunches,” she said. “We really need any kind of school snacks and drinks and even school supplies, but we will take anything at this point.” According to Elder the food bank serves 1,100 Peninsula-based clients a month, 39 per cent of whom are children under 16. “Having items for school lunches is essential for us and right now we wouldn’t be able to provide that.” The food bank also assists many of the community’s in-school breakfast programs, something which past Sidney elementary school principal (and incoming principal at North Saanich middle school come September) Kal Russell says is an essential service the schools provide to students and families. “Every day we had breakfast out for kids who need it, that way if they come to school hungry we’re always able to take care of them,” he explained.

Pack of Piranhas eyes more medals Swimmers compete in championships in Nanaimo this week Devon MacKenzie News staff

Twenty-seven local swimmers from the Saanich Peninsula Piranhas are off to the B.C. Summer Swimming Association Provincials this weekend. The swimmers competed at the Vancouver Island regional meet Aug. 4-5 in Courtenay and out of 32 swimmers from the Piranhas who participated in the heats, 27 of them are headed to

Nanaimo for provincials. “I’m hoping to get the backstoke provincial record and hopefully a medal,” said Phil Vellacott, 13. “When I was up at regionals two weeks ago I broke the regional record in 100 [metre] backstroke, 100 freestyle and 50 freestyle, so I hope I can do it in Nanaimo.” The records Vellacott broke at the regional meet dated back to the ’80s. Also heading to Nanaimo with recordbreaking times is a young relay team, including Sidney swimmer Vienna Wakefield, 7. “I’m really excited to swim in my relay,” Vienna said. “I swim with three other girls in freestyle and I’m hoping we get first place. If we get first, we get

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 on essential service levels between two unions – CUPE 917 and 951 – and the university 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 “It appears of [essential jobs] was short and their the plan is to be list was long.” implemented for Kane Kilbey, associate the 2012-13 school UVic’s vice-president of year. What is not human resources, clear is exactly how said in a July 20 notice posted many jobs are at online: “It continues to be the universistake.” ty’s desire to reach – CUPE B.C. a negotiated settlepress release ment 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, child care 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 board. Sprenger said 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 Feel good. Feel better. Make a difference.

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

OUR VIEW

It’s about time for online voting During Canadian federal, provincial and municipal elections, the number of ways to cast a vote is slim. You can show up to your polling station on election day, vote at advanced polls, or with special permission, mail in your ballot. Voting in the vast majority of places in Canada has resolutely remained stuck in the past – ticking a ballot with a pencil. Technological advances have been confined largely to optical counting devices. A few municipalities have flirted with touch screen voting machines and telephone voting for municipal elections. Last week, B.C. became the latest government to announce it will examine if voting options should be brought into the 21st century, namely casting a ballot via the Internet. The federal government has already said it wants to try online voting in a by-election by 2013. With voter turnout at all jurisdictions continuing to decline, giving people convenient options to vote can only be a good thing. There’s no guarantee Internet voting will crack the apathy of the non-voting public, but there’s a good chance younger adult voters might finally be engaged. People with limited mobility, and where travelling to a polling station is too onerous, would also have the chance to exercise their rights from home. Of course there are serious technical and psychological hurdles to cross. The public needs to have confidence that voting via the Internet still means anonymity and integrity, and that their vote will be counted. Election officials need to have confidence the system will allow people to vote only once, and that it can’t be hacked and seeded with fraudulent results. The May 2012 federal NDP leadership vote, which allowed members to cast votes online, showed both the strengths and weaknesses of the system. The voting website was subject to attempted sabotage by hackers, which slowed the voting process, but they weren’t able to compromise actual voting results. Internet voting remains far from perfect, but it deserves a chance, alongside our trusty pencil and paper. What do you think?

It was established as the Dominion Experimental Farm in 1912. Unlike the local newspaper, the century-old research lab is slated to close in the near future. Due to federal budget cutbacks, plans are in place to shut the lab down by 2014, to the opposition of Saanich Gulf Islands MP Elizabeth May, Peninsula municipal councils and many residents.

Biblical reasons don’t impede gay marriage Re: Want gay fries with that order? (The Gen Y Lens, Aug. 10) “…The majority of those who don’t support same-sex marriage probably operate … on biblical principles …” What Biblical principles are those? There is no Biblical definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. 1 Timothy 3:12 states “Let deacons marry only once” (in contrast to Catholic unmarried priests). There is no indication of the gender of the marriage partner. Many Biblical marriages were polygamous.

The clover trap resembles an oversized hockey net which is baited with food to attract deer during the night. When the deer enter and start to eat, a door will drop behind them, holding them captive until the morning when they will be dispatched with the bolt gun.

THE ARTS B.C. arts grants announced Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government has provided $16.8 million for community arts and culture grants for the current year, matching last year’s total with help from a dwindling 2010 Olympic legacy fund. Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Ida Chong announced the funding Monday in Victoria, along with B.C. Arts Council chair Stan Hamilton. The BCAC has juries that assess funding applications and has so far doled out about $6 million of this year’s budget. With less than half the money allocated in Chong’s current ministry budget, another $6.75 million came from the 2010 Sports and Arts Legacy. That $60 million fund was created in the 2010 budget to offset earlier recession-driven cuts to adult arts and sports organizations from provincial gambling revenues. It will be gone after this year

and there is no indication where it might be made up next year. When the recession hit in 2008, the B.C. Liberal government cut grant funding from the B.C. Lottery Corp. from $156 million to $113 million, then raised it back to $120 million to restore funds to school district parent advisory councils. Applicants were told arts and sports funding from lotteries would be restricted to organizations for young people and the disabled. Premier Christy Clark promised to restore funds while campaigning for the party leadership last year. Once elected, she announced a $15 million increase in gambling funds for a range of organizations including community service clubs, fairs, festivals and museums. Chong said she sometimes meets artists and organizations who are not aware they can apply to the B.C. Arts Council for grants. Application forms are available at www. bcartscouncil.ca. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

A jewel in the crown for Peninsula Players Local theatre troupe celebrates its 60th by honouring the Queen’s 60th on the throne, with humour and history Devon MacKenzie News staff

Like the Queen, this year the Peninsula Players will celebrate their Diamond Jubilee of 60 years of local theatre. The group known as the Peninsula Players was first formed at a meeting in November of 1952 at St. Andrew’s Hall in Sidney. Their first show was held the next year on March 7 at North Saanich School and consisted of three short plays. The Players’ first full length production, Laburnum Grove, took

place in November of the same year. In 1955 the Players entered the B.C. Drama Festival for the first time and have since won many awards at subsequent festivals, including two in the B.C. Drama Festival finals this year. Peninsula Players have produced around 150 shows during their 60 years of existence and currently perform four or five shows a year at the Charlie White Theatre, the Berwick Royal Oak and Muse Winery in North Saanich. They have a

from William the Conqueror in 1066, up to William, Duke of Cambridge in 2012. The show contains readings from writers over the last 1,000 years, sketches, comedy and music. “Canadian Heritage sent out a notice early in the year for groups to do something for the Queen’s Jubilee,” explained Richard Mills of the Players. “We thought we might get a small group together and what we came up with was a kind of review that features the high points of the kings and queens of England over the years. It’s a fun show, there’s some very good actors in it and it’s lighthearted. We have fun with it.” reporter@peninsulanews review.com

“We know so much more about nutrition now and what a huge role it plays in keeping them engaged in their learning. Eating small snacks throughout the day are a big part of that.� But even though the food bank is dangerously low on school-related items with September just around the corner, Elder also noted that staple items at the food bank are dangerously low.

“With 12 per cent of the people we serve being seniors 65 and older, we really need those staple items too like canned beans, canned soups even basics like Kraft Dinner we’ve basically run out of. It’s scary.� If you are interesting in donating to the Sidney Lions food bank, drop offs can be made directly to the food bank at 9586 Fifth Street (in Iroquois Park) or call 250-655-0679 for more information. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

POLICE NEWS IN BRIEF

Homeowners might have scared intruder A break-in in the 7700 block of East Saanich Road has Central Saanich police seeking information.

Mere hours before crews began improvements to the intersection of Sayward Road and the Pat Bay Highway, the province’s transportation minister stood at the dangerous corner to announce a $3 million plan to improve safety. The first step, which started Wednesday night, involved the installation of a flashing congestion ahead sign on the highway south of Cordova Bay Road. The sign is expected to be up and running by the end of next week. “This is [an intersection] that has affected many families in this area in not a very positive manner,” said Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom. Pat Bay and Sayward is one of the most dangerous intersections in the province, having been the site of more than 338 crashes since 2007. A community group was formed last year, involving local and provincial politicians, community members, B.C. Transit and the Ministry of Transportation, to come up with short- and medium-

term solutions to the issues at the intersection. Those changes, supplied by the working group, are what Lekstrom announced. If the changes proposed under the $3 million plan don’t accomplish safety and traffic improvements, Lekstrom said there’s a possibility that, more than a decade from now, a long-term solution like an interchange could be built there. Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard says the message he’s hearing from residents is an interchange isn’t wanted. “The mayors on the Peninsula have gone to the interchange idea and our community really doesn’t want that here. So [transportation] ministers have used that divided voice to say, ‘We won’t do anything until you folks make up your minds.’ Fortunately the safety issue trumped everything,” Leonard said. The congestion light is the only change travellers will see happen in 2012, Lekstrom said. By spring of next year, a right-turning deceleration lane onto Sayward, a bus stop pullout south of Sayward and a northbound acceleration lane from Sayward will be built. There will also be a transit priority queue lane installed. Saanich South MLA Lana Popham, who sat on the working group, spoke to Black Press earlier this month to say she was expecting the changes to happen sooner. “The reason why it needs to happen right now is the longer we wait, the more chance we’re going to see more accidents,” Popham said. On Wednesday, she said the announcement was “fantastic.” This week’s installation of the congestion sign will require the closure of one northbound lane on the Pat Bay between 6:30 p.m. and 3 a.m. kslavin@saanichnews.com

CRD should have say in transit, review finds Mayors pleased with findings Daniel Palmer News staff

Capital Region District officials should be able to appoint a transit commission and have a say over changes that affect their public service, a review of B.C. Transit operations has recommended. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom appointed a review panel 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very, very positive in the general direction [itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headed,â&#x20AC;? said Sidney Mayor Larry Cross. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m particularly pleased to see the recommendation for much greater municipal involvement in Transit. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely critical. Lekstrom promised to respond to the recommendations during the September Union of B.C. Municipalities conference.

Report recommendations â&#x2013;  A local government advisory panel to consult on system-wide capital expenditures. â&#x2013;  Local governments should share information on long-term transit budget changes, land use and zoning decisions. â&#x2013;  The province should amend the B.C. Transit Act to allow multiyear operating agreements. â&#x2013;  B.C. Transit should report to municipalities twice a year on ridership, cost per capita, passengers per capita and other performance measures.

Joe Stanhope, chair of the Regional District of Nanaimo, was on hand with Lekstrom to release the report Tuesday. Stanhope said the recommendations of the review team are â&#x20AC;&#x153;exactly what we wanted.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were some problems, and the basic problems were communications,â&#x20AC;? he said. CEO Manuel Achadinha said B.C. Transit admitted the governance model required modernization and the report provides concrete steps to make that happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll operate under the governance structure provided to us by the province,â&#x20AC;? he said. Stanhope raised the alarm in 2011 after B.C. Transit notified local officials of a doubling of management fees, after munici-

palities had adopted their budgets for the year. Nanaimo also protested a plan to move some of the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 governments. 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 provincial funding. On Tuesday, he declined to comment on specific recommendations until they have been reviewed and discussed by local communities.

Neville-Rutherford, 16, will be attending the championships for the second time in the hammer throw, a track and field event where the name of the game is to throw a heavy metal ball attached to a wire and handle. Neville-Rutherford has been training in hammer throw for eight years. “I’m excited, I’m really hoping to medal [at nationals],” she said. “I think it will be a different experience than last year just because of where it is.” Last year, Neville-Rutherford, a long-time Pen Track member, began working with Pacific Athletics under coach Sheldon

Give them power. Give them confidence. Give them control.

GIVE THEM A PAPER ROUTE! A paper route is about so much more than money. These days kids want and need so many things. With a paper route they not only earn the money to buy those things, they also gain a new respect for themselves. They discover a new sense of confidence, power and control by having their very own job, making their own money and paying for their own games, phones and time with friends. All it takes is an hour or so after school Wednesday and Friday. And even better... there are no collections required.

It’s so easy to get started… call
