Henderson expansion plan revealed Brittany Lee News staff

Summer camp creates cooks Brittany Lee News staff

Twenty young chefs stormed the Windsor Park Pavilion last Wednesday morning, concocting fruit smoothies to re-energize after playing outside. The Thrifty Foods Young Chef Camp, teaching children aged 9 to 12 simple recipes to get them interested in healthy food, ran at Oak Bay rec last week. “The goal of the program is to teach

(children) about healthy eating and instill in kids at a young age about cooking and being creative, and creating tasty recipes,” said Jessalyn O’Donnell, a dietician with Thrifty Foods. The week-long program, which travels to different rec centres in Greater Victoria throughout the summer and during parts of the year, allows kids to develop hands-on skills in the kitchen. Campers also tour the grocery store, where they learn how to read food labels

and are introduced to different food items. Although the recipes are easy, it’s still fun, according to an Oak Bay camper. “I find it really fun that we get to pick our ingredients and then we get to taste them,” nine-year-old Mark Pugliese said. “I would really consider going to this camp again.” For more information, see Young Chef Camp under the News and Events section of thriftyfoods.com. reporter@vicnews.com

Plans to expand Henderson recreation centre are moving forward, with hopes for construction to begin this fall. Initial designs for the building were revealed to Oak Bay officials, including Mayor Nils Jensen, parks and rec commission liaison Coun. Tara Ney, parks and rec staff, and Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Ida Chong, last Wednesday (Aug. 15) at the rec centre. The proposed designs will give the centre a new look, according to Karen Fedoruk, intern architect with Victoria-based CEI Architecture, the same company working with the municipality on the Oak Bay High school replacement project. “(We’re) trying to make it fit in with the existing structure, but give the recreation centre a little bit of a new life and new identity,” Fedoruk, who is also project lead, said. The 830 square-foot expansion will see improvements to the reception area, as well as an additional 530 square-feet in the fitness studio. It will provide plenty of natural light and improve comfort for both patrons and staff, Fedoruk said. The expanded gym will include a designated stretching area and more space for fitness programs. Wood beams and columns will support the structure while also showing off the architecture of the building. Windows in the gym will also be replaced with insulated, weather-tight panes to improve energy efficiency, said Gary Smith, architect with CEI Architecture. “That’ll help update the building as they make improvements down the road, so that’ll help tie in what we’re doing now,” he said.

OAK BAY NEWS - Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Part 3 in a series looking at why and how the Songhees First Nation is protecting its private property on Chatham and Discovery islands.

Christine van Reeuwyk/News staff

Signs at Chatham warn travellers that the island is private property belonging to Songhees. The beach just past the signs has a recently used fire pit and is littered with garbage from regular visits by unauthorized boaters.

MOVING FORWARD: Protecting the private property on Discovery and Chatham islands is critical to the future Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Pebbles smooth from centuries of tides, bleached logs and rambling hills culminate to a siren song for visitors to Chatham and Discovery islands. On a sunny summer day a pair of young men beach their small outboard and settle in to the task of anchoring to shore. A group on the beach point toward signs indicating the historical territory, and bylaw officer Trevor Absolon lopes down the beach towards the pair. Today they’ll learn a lesson about the island: it is private property belonging to the Songhees First Nation. That education is part of the wave of the future. “We’re going out of our way to try to educate public. We’re not trying to prosecute people; we need to help them learn,” the bylaw officer said. Informing the two young men is part of that process. Added signage includes Cattle Point and Oak Bay Marina boat launches where notices alert those launching craft to be aware of the First Nation territories and that trespassing rules are in effect. “These islands as you can see, they’re beautiful, they’re tantalizing,” Absolon said, sweep-

ing his across the beach visage. “People want also be individual and they’ll include foot to find out what’s out there. They want to patrols of the islands.” visit these locations.

effective service, Jensen said. “I’m very pleased that we’re moving ahead and that we have a design and, I think, it’s going to meet the objectives that we’re trying to achieve there,” he said, noting accessibility and enhanced rehabilitation options for patrons as goals. “I’m also very happy we’re going to be looking at energy efficiency. … All in all, it’s a very good design.”

Construction is slated to start this fall and will take approximately five months. The rec centre will remain open during renovations, however, certain areas may be temporarily closed to the public. The project, estimated to cost $469,300, is funded by the Ministry of community, sport and cultural development, and the municipality’s reserve funds. reporter@vicnews.com

Tech tourist leads cops to cache of stolen goods Daniel Palmer News staff

An Alberta tourist used a GPS application on her stolen iPad to lead Victoria police to a cache of stolen goods in Esquimalt. The woman was staying with friends in the 4300-block of Saanich Rd. Thieves broke in Aug. 13 and raided the home while no one was at home, taking the iPad and other electronics. When the woman returned to the property, she used a

“This suite was a virtual department store of stolen property.” – Sgt. Barrie Cockle software application to track her iPad, leading her and a friend to the 600-block of Admirals Rd. VicPD were then able to zero in on an apartment and obtain a search warrant. Police found cardboard boxes filled with credit cards, plastic tubs full of laptops, guitars and

approximately three litres of GHB – a so-called date rape drug – stacked throughout the suite. “This suite was a virtual department store of stolen property,” Sgt. Barrie Cockle said in a statement. “The work by this tourist and our officers will put a significant dent in property crimes throughout the (Capital Region).” Two men and two women were in the suite at the time and are being investigated in the theft. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Fraudsters a year from trial Each of four Mainland men face between 12 and 17 criminal charges each Four Mainland men accused in a significant identity theft and stolen credit card ring in Victoria in March won’t go to trial at least until next year. A hearing last week regarding the fraud set a preliminary inquiry in Victoria provincial court for three days starting July 17, 2013. The fraud ring unravelled March 9 when the owner of the Qoola store at Uptown confronted, then followed, three men who tried to steal the store’s PIN machine. A Saanich officer going by at the time located the three men in the underground parking lot in a Mercedes. Saanich police detectives executed a search warrant at the Hotel Grand Pacific, where the men were staying, and found four point-of-sale machines – three determined stolen – computers, tools and equipment used to compromise the devices. While police were at the hotel, a fourth suspect arrived and was arrested. The Mercedes contained credit cards and credit card numbers, and the car was seized by police. Police say the men made fraudulent purchases at the Bay Centre, the Cactus Club, the Hotel Grand Pacific and the

Strathcona Hotel. Four men – Nicholas Lakomy, 32, Domingos Usseni, 40, Rodney Boucher, 32, and David Dang, 24 – face a slew of

fraud charges, and charges related to forging and stealing credit card information, and possession of stolen property. Each man faces between 12 and 17 separate criminal charges. Boucher is the only suspect with a signifi-

cant criminal record for petty crimes and assaults in Terrace, Dawson Creek, Surrey and Abbotsford. Boucher was found guilty of fraud and using a stolen credit card in Vancouver last December, and in Whistler in February 2011. editor@saanichnews.com

OUR VIEW

Refinery idea a tough sell in B.C. T

here doesn’t appear to be a grey area for those weighing in on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. Opposition is rampant and loud, focusing primarily on environmental concerns, while supporters defend Enbridge’s project for, among other reasons, its economic potential. Last week’s announcement from David Black, the owner of this newspaper, for a proposed $13-billion oil refinery in Kitimat, adds a new conversation to this divisive issue. Analogous to milling raw logs instead of shipping them overseas, Black wants to add value to crude oil in B.C. A massive refinery, where half a million barrels of crude oil could be processed each day, delivers the idea of permanent employment and economic benefit for the province, instead of pumping oil sands crude into tankers bound for China. Building and running the facility would create thousands of jobs, and the area around Terrace and Kitimat would require major infrastructure improvements to accommodate the regional boom. It would also ease some, certainly not all, environmental concerns about oil tankers on the coast. As opposed to heavy crude oil, refined fuels float and evaporate. But Black is putting the cart before the horse. Even if he arranges $13 billion in financing and receives environmental permits, any refinery is predicated on the Enbridge pipeline, which remains deeply unpopular with a majority of the public and northern First Nations people. Significant economic benefit derived from the pipeline could sway popular opinion, especially people living through hard times in northern B.C., but probably not enough to tip the scales. Black and Enbridge will have a tough time convincing skeptical urban residents in southern cities that the potential of thousands of jobs in the northern oil sector is worth the risk of a pipeline leak or a tanker running aground on B.C.’s coast.

inventory, at a time when environmental changes have been sweeping. Steve Thomson, minister of the newly amalgamated forests, lands and natural resource operations ministry, points to the urgent efforts to upgrade the government’s detailed picture of the state of the forests, so it can consider new cutting, planting and fertilizing efforts. But there’s no denying that he came to the job in a crisis that will take more spending in the future, and he will have a hard time finding it as Finance Minister Kevin Falcon looks to balance the books for the 2013 election. If nothing else, the pine beetle epidemic has forced the B.C. government to consider some of the intensive forest management that we hear about in Scandinavia, one of those places that supplies B.C. with wood furniture. And it has prompted renewed interest in offering new forest tenures to aboriginal communities with unresolved resource claims. Under current law, the government can only direct award new forest tenures to aboriginal communities. So part of the committee’s proposed solution is to “expedite negotiations” with the Burns Lake First Nations to give them a chance to harvest some of the marginally economic forest areas that remain. –Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

LETTERS Protecting Songhees lands benefits us all Kudos to Oak Bay News for covering the welcome assertion of Songhees ownership of the Chatham/ Discovery archipelago in a sensitive and understanding way. We all benefit from knowing more of the rich cultural heritage we have come to live beside and that it is part of the deep fabric of our

community. It is wonderful that my old friend and colleague, Phillip Teece, has been honoured by the Songhees for his work to protect the islands through long years of benign neglect. No one deserves it more. David Williams Oak Bay

No sanctuary for deer Re: The high cost involved to keep, transport deer (Letters, Aug. 10). The recent letter comparing the relocation of deer and rabbits is akin to comparing oranges and apples. Part of the agreement put out by the Ministry of Environment was that the rabbits had to be relocated to an establishment which would care for them. They were not to be adopted out or set free in another location. Fortunately, there are a few good sanctuaries that accepted the rabbits and continue to care for them. I am involved with three sanctuaries and know of what I speak. The cost of maintaining rabbits is far from $130 per month per rabbit as quoted.

The sanctuaries that gracefully accepted the rabbits are full time establishments which are taking care of many types of animals. These are well-organized facilities that get a lot of volunteer help, have fundraisers and get donations of food, hay and other necessities to continue caring for these creatures. If and when deer are relocated there will be no sanctuary involvement nor will it cost anything to feed them. They are wild animals used to foraging for food whereas the rabbits that were relocated were mainly domestic rabbits that uncaring people merely dumped. William Jesse Oak Bay

Killing deer population is not the right answer Re: The high cost involved to keep, transport deer (Letters, Aug. 10). After reading this letter several times, it still does not make any sense to me. However, the reference to the situation in the U.K. clearly proves that slaughtering the deer is not the answer as it does not prevent the population from keeping on increasing – I quote Colleen Bailey of Humane Treatment of Urban Wildlife and member of the Cranbrook Urban Deer Committee: “All the cull is doing is creating a perpetual cycle of killing.” And yet, in spite of these data

and those available much closer to home and here in B.C., the citizens advisory group appointed by the CRD is still actively considering this lethal option and is totally ignoring any source of objective evidence and science. It is time to put an end to this culture of death and it is time to consider much more effective, ethical and responsible alternatives to the deer and other wildlife issues. A final note for the letter writer’s information: I would donate to the animal cause any time rather than supporting the cancer industry. Nabhraj Spogliarich Saanich

Get involved in OCP now Re: Council selects committee members (News, Aug. 10). The commencement of a review of the Official Community Plan (OCP) for Oak Bay could be important news for all residents. Certainly there should be widespread community conversation about the potential. Provincial legislation imposes minimum requirements for the contents of an OCP, and the minimum requirements are almost entirely restricted to the built ‘framework’ for our community. As such, the provincial requirements are the last piece of the puzzle. As with every puzzle, they are really the easiest piece. Before a recommended OCP is put to council, the consultants and the project advisory committee will undoubtedly want to discover what we, the citizens, have in mind for our community. Citizens should think about at least five questions. 1. How would I describe the mix -- of people, economic activity, social activity, nature and human interaction -- that makes Oak Bay appealing to me? 2. What is it about Oak Bay that I really value, and would sacrifice to maintain? (Because Oak Bay is going to change: we have seen it, for example, with the demolition and replacement of individual homes, and in-fill housing.)

Sewage treatment too costly So where do the powers that be think that homeowners will get the $200 to $500 per year to pay for this gold-plated sewage treatment system? Do the various mayors and council members pay any attention to the “iffy” economic conditions that are creeping inexorably from the rest of the world into our little corner? And what about this glib little statement about the taxpayers picking up any cost overruns? And

what about the rumours circulating that the system going into place won’t accommodate new technologies as they become available – at least without major overhaul (read: yet more expense)? Our politicians truly do think our pockets are bottomless. Richard Weatherill Saanich

3. What change would I very much like to see (within the boundaries of Oak Bay), and be prepared to sacrifice to attain? (Because we may want more recreation facilities, or housingin-place for seniors.) 4. As demographics and esthetic expectations change, and as the economy changes and our relationship to the environment changes, what trade-offs am I prepared to make so that neighbours can also enjoy a satisfying quality of life in Oak Bay? 5. As things change, what provisions need to be made for dealing with transitions, so that I can continue to feel comfortable as change occurs? (Younger people have different priorities than older people; Edwardian homes are not everyone’s cup of tea.) We should be talking with our neighbours about questions such as these. We should take advantage of every opportunity the project advisory committee provides to give input. We should pay careful attention to how the committee and consultants gather input, and weigh it, and knit it all together in the eventual recommendations. The review of the OCP provides a great opportunity for the citizens of Oak Bay to shape the future of the community. David King Oak Bay

If your eyes get tired or inamed occasionally, taking eye drops to make them feel better may actually increase the risk of future problems. Your eyes are very precious and delicate. They should never be treated without the advice of your eye care professional. Valuable time may be lost in detecting vision problems if you decide to treat tired or inamed eyes yourself. It could be that the eye drops feel soothing or you believe washing out your eyes with a home remedy is all you need to relieve a minor eye problem. True, not all inamed eyes are a sign of something serious, and perhaps the condition will soon alleviate itself. However, any persistent eye problem, even a minor one, should have professional care, as it could be a symptom of something more serious. You should have your eyes examined regularly, even if you’ve never had a problem in seeing clearly. You should have them examined to ensure they remain healthy and function properly.

Senior transition study gets cash Natalie North News staff

As Greater Victoria’s senior population grows, so will the strain on long-term health care systems. Last week federal and provincial governments awarded two University of Victoria researchers from the Centre on Aging more than $330,000 toward investigating how older adults transition through long-term care services. Margaret Penning and Denise Cloutier will lead the study aimed at understanding common pathways people experience, with an ultimate goal of providing better care. “Once we identify

some of those common patterns, we want to say ‘Are there particular individual and social factors that are common to their experiences?’” said Cloutier, a professor in the university’s Department of Geography. The study will evaluate data collected from people aged 75 and older connected to the Fraser Health Authority, the fastest growing health authority in B.C. Penning, of the UVic Department of Sociology, and Cloutier, will

evaluate individual trajectories based on age, gender, income, social factors and available community resources. “We don’t understand a lot about what makes people spend a certain amount of time in home care and then transition into residential care. Or why they would go to residential care immediately, and then around that, what happens when they go in and out of hospital,” Cloutier said. “It is on those transitions that people are the most vul-

nerable. If we can learn more about those transitions and who’s most vulnerable, we can presumably, plan better care and services in the years to come.” Transactions and Trajectories in Late Life Care: Patterns and Predictors is funded by the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, B.C.’s health research support agency ($99,967), and the federal Canadian Institutes of Health Research ($233,259). nnorth@saanichnews.com

The panicked, desperate scramble to find housing before the September semester begins is a rite of passage for University of Victoria students. One of those UVic students, a computer science PhD student, found his apartment hunting experience so maddening and time consuming, he did what any self-respecting comp-sci guy would do. He wrote a web app to solve the problem. Jamie Starke, 28, and Lars Grammel, 31, both with UVic’s computer human interaction software engineering lab (CHISEL), created a web tool that combs through rental service databases and plots the rentals on a street map of Greater Victoria, which also shows all bus routes that serve UVic. The web app, called the Victoria Rental Map, has slider widgets to cus“Many times it tomize a search to price, number of bedrooms, looked like I found shared accommodation, and distance from a bus something that stop on a UVic route. It looked good with a updates itself at 6 a.m. good price, it was every day. Starke conceived the way out in Langford idea while apartment hunting with his wife in or Sooke.” – Jamie Starke April. Not deeply familiar with the neighbourhoods of the region and their proximity to UVic, he found it frustrating to search no less than 21 rental service agencies, plus Craigslist and UsedVictoria for an apartment that fit their budget and needs. “When I came here two years ago, looking for a place was terrible. This time around I had a better idea about Victoria, but Fairfield versus Fernwood? I get mixed up all the time,” Starke said. “Many times it looked like I found something that looked good with a good price, it was way out in Langford or Sooke.” Starke teamed up with Grammel, who specializes in mapping visualization tools, and wrote the code to comb through websites and databases for relevant data – price, location, style and number of bedrooms. The information is out there, Starke said, but teasing it from websites was no simple task. “I decided instead of working four hours a night to find a place to live, I’d work on (the rental map) three hours each night, and only one hour looking for an apartment,” he said laughing. It worked. The web tool went live in May and his wife used it to successfully zero in on a new home. “We found a nice basement suite that met everything we wanted,” he said. “It was a good sign I was doing something right.” The Victoria Rental Map remains UVic-centric in terms of bus routes, but Starke plans to add transit lines that will help students attending Royal Roads, the two Camosun College campuses and for the downtown core. And of course, you don’t need to be a student to use the tool. Some minor glitches remain – it runs a bit slow on the iPad and doesn’t work at all on older Internet Explorer browsers, but Starke plans on improving the program when he can. There’s no mobile phone app and there probably won’t be. “That is a lot of work and isn’t planned soon. This is something Lars and I are doing in our free time.” See victoria.rentalmap.co for the Victoria Rental Map. editor@saanichnews.com

Boomers to Seniors

Lifestyle discoveries There is a wing of the 55-plus club that refuses to age gracefully. For years I was its standard bearer. I have watched Q BRIAN KIERAN contemporary COLUMNIST Boomers transition with dignity into their senior years while I have been dragged kicking and screaming through the golden portals. It has not been pretty. It’s not that I haven’t got the message along the way. The age-o-gram with my name on it arrived unexpectedly, in my late 50s, in the middle of the night after an evening of great fun on Pender Island. The pain in my chest was of heart attack quality, but instead of dying I just hurt worse and worse. Tempting as it must have been to let me writhe on the Æoor, my family called 911 and a rescue mission went into high gear. Volunteer Årst responders and paramedics had me evacuated to the island clinic in record time. A doctor was roused from bed and accurately diagnosed a very serious gall bladder failure. A helicopter was summoned and I was whisked to Victoria General Hospital. Days later I was informed by the surgeon that I would have been dead in 12 hours had not the Åre and rescue response been so efÅcient. He also made it painfully clear

Q&A

Q LAURA LAVIN, OAK BAY NEWS

Born in Surrey, England Jean Sharlow came to Canada as a war bride in 1946. She met her husband Bill at a dance when she was just 16 years old. “He asked me to dance and he couldn’t dance his way out of a paper bag,” she said. “Then he walked me home and told me ‘When you get to know me better, I’m going to ask you to marry me.’” Within six months the two were wed and the Sharlows made their home in Canada. They moved to Oak Bay in 1984. They were together 69 years before Bill died at age 94, two years ago. Their wedding photo is on the back cover of the book Blackouts to Bright Lights, Canadian War Bride Stories, which tells the story of just a few of the approximately 48,000 British and European women who married Canadian servicemen during the war and made the adventurous crossing to Canada. Jean says she can’t remember ever having a paying job, but worked for dozens of years at blood clinics. She loves to quilt, a hobby of hers for many years, and is past-president of the Monterey Centre Quilt Club. Jean and Bill have two sons, three granddaughters, five great-granddaughters and earlier this month were “blessed with a little boy” great-grandson, who is named William after his great-grandfather.

“The first time I saw him, he was wrapped up in one of my quilts,” the proud greatgrandmother said.

Victoria playwright debuts at Fringe fest Daniel Palmer News staff

Alexa Gilker doesn’t like to waste time. The 25-year-old playwright debuts her first stageplay tomorrow (Aug. 23) at the Victoria Fringe Festival, a milestone she’s achieved only three months out of the University of Victoria’s creative writing program. “It’s terrifying,� she said. “But I love this play.� Beautiful Obedient Wife tells the story of a Ukrainian woman who is unknowingly sold as a mail-order bride to a Canadian suitor. It’s a complex reality with examples all over Canada, Gilker said. “Ukraine is where a huge majority of these women are coming from,� she said. “They’re usually struggling in poverty and looking for a way out.� Despite the heavy subject matter, Gilker believes entertainment should be the primary objective of theatre and has rewritten her play as a comedy. She’s also enlisted the help of local folk band, Carousels, to create a genuine feel to the Eastern European backdrop. “I just realized it’s not a black and white issue, and comedy is a good way to deal with that,� she said. Under the guidance of seasoned fringe director Sandi Barrett, the play undergoes ongoing workshop revisions with input from Gilker and her ensemble of actors. “We rewrite the script almost every rehearsal,� Gilker said. “There are a lot of times I realize I’m not actually as funny as I think I am, and there are some things that really work and we amp up even further.� Fringe festivals operate on the principles of being unjuried and giving all of the proceeds to the performers, said Janet Munsil, festival producer.

For the first time, the festival is also incorporating a kidfriendly event on Aug. 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Market Square. “Because the performers are chosen by lottery, there was no way for us to guarantee a kids’ show,� Munsil said. “So we wanted to provide an opportunity for kids to sit down and see a play.� Gilker hopes her The 26th annual play, which has six Victoria Fringe performance dates, Festival runs from will be the first of Aug. 23 to Sept. many in Victoria.

Munsil and her team host 55 local, North American and overseas performers for 11 days of bargain-price entertainment. Five-show passes are available for $55 and single show tickets go for $9 or $11. “We have a curious and educated audience in Victoria that just loves to see new stuff and support local and touring artists,� Munsil said.

A Roots Reggae musician, songwriter and poet from St. Lucia‚ Taj Weekes and his band Adowa perform Thursday. Weekes and Adowa bring a social consciousness with a reggae groove, blending in elements of acoustic roots rock and afrofolk. Weekes and Adowa unite a vibrant diversity of sounds with thoughtful, lush arrangements and a finely honed penchant for telling poetic tales of hardship and hope. “I don’t sit down and write socially conscious songs. I write songs about where I place my focus,” Weekes says. “I grew up listening to the power of the music, the lyrical content. That’s what matters to me.” Though long hailed by reggae fans, Weekes defies simple genre formulas. His intuitive, intense songwriting ties together the many threads of his Caribbean heritage and honours his unflagging engagement with the world as a musician, philanthropist and lecturer.

Black hopes to build $13B oil refinery in B.C. interior Victoria businessman David Black eyes facility in Kitimat Tom Fletcher Black Press

A Victoria businessman is heading up a proposal to build a $13-billion oil refinery in Kitimat. David Black, chairman of Black Press and owner of the Oak Bay News, announced Friday he wants to build a world scale oil refinery in Kitimat, B.C.

Black told a news conference in Vancouver Friday he is submitting an environmental assessment application to build a “world scale” oil refinery on behalf of Kitimat Clean Ltd., a company owned by Black. The application to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office is expected this fall. The proposed refinery would be big enough to process all the diluted bitumen carried by Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline. Black said he has had extensive discussions with Enbridge and other players in the Canadian oil industry,

but none has so far offered to back the project. Black said he will use his own money to finance the proposal through environmental assessment, which he expects to cost several million dollars. After that, he said investors would be needed to complete it, assuming both the refinery and the pipeline receive approval. He has had preliminary meetings with Kitimat and Terrace councils, as well as the Haisla and Kitselas First Nations in the region. The proposed site is a 3,000-hectare Crown industrial property between Terrace and Kitimat. Kitimat Mayor Joanne Monaghan spoke by phone to the news conference, offering encouragement for the proposal. But Black acknowledged he does not yet have formal support from communities or investors. “I see myself as a catalyst to make this happen,” said Black, who first proposed the idea to the province and the industry seven years ago when he was chairman of the B.C. Progress Board. Black is working with Glenn McGinnis, a consulting engineer and former manager of the Ioco oil refinery in Port Moody. “We want it [the Kitimat refinery] to be the cleanest and greenest upgrading and refining site in the world,” McGinnis said. The refinery would produce 240,000 barrels per day of diesel, 100,000 barrels per day of gasoline and 50,000 barrels per day of kerosene or aviation fuel, refined from heavy oil. Among those attending the news conference was Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations, a group in the Kitimat area that has strongly opposed the pipeline proposal. Sterritt disputed Black’s assertion that a B.C. refinery “solves half of the problem” with exported oil by shipping refined gasoline, jet fuel and diesel in tankers instead of heavy crude. Those products have their own risks, Sterritt said. Black pointed out that without marine shipments of those fuels, the remote coastal communities Sterritt represents would not be able to function. Lighter fuel products are still an environmental hazard, but dissipate more quickly and do not persist for years like spilled heavy crude, he said. Black said the refinery will mean nearly 6,000 construction jobs over a five-year period, 3,000 permanent jobs at the refinery and tax revenue for various levels of government.

Big finish for Layritz Layritz finalists at Junior Softball World Series Travis Paterson News staff

It’s been a gradual climb for Layritz Little League and there’s only one step left to conquer. The team of 13- and 14-year-old girls based out of the Saanich park made it to the final of the Junior Softball Little League World Series on Saturday, only to lose to their Alaskan counterparts 6-2. The tourney was played in Kirkland, Wash., and the final was broadcast on ESPN 2. It was the most successful finish for the three-time Canadian champs in all three of its trips to the world softball World Series. “We didn’t even win a game in our first trip so we’ve come a long way,” said coach Paul Tucker. After bouncing back from losing to the host Kirkland in the opener, Layritz became the “darlings of the tournament,”

Don Denton/News staff

Keith Hamilton stops a shot during captain’s ice last week.

Tucker said, by defeating two U.S.A. teams, including Alaska in the round robin. Layritz then upset Puerto Rico, the overall favourite, with a 5-2 win in the semifinal. “As we defeated other teams they became our fans, and the other teams were cheering for us in the finals.” Pitcher Ashley Penney starred in the series, flying in from the Softball Canada U16 Fast Pitch championships in Brantford, Ont., on Tuesday. Penney pitched and lost in the national U16 final, too, as B.C. finished second. In Kirkland, Penney pitched in three games, and struck out 29 batters in 17 innings, while giving up just 16 hits. Equally impressive on the mound was Jenna Saulnier, who struck out 18 batters in 16 innings. Stef Galitzine hit .467 in the tourney batting lead off, scoring four times. “I try to replay it in my mind what else we could have done, but the bats just weren’t quite there (Saturday),” Tucker said. Eleven of the 12 girls will play senior Little League next year. sports@vicnews.com

Royals rustle up staff

Under-16 baseball players off to nats

The Victoria Royals recently completed their coaching staff in time for this week’s draft camp, and the upcoming rookie camp, about to get underway at SaveOn-Foods Memorial Centre. New to the Royals bench is former junior B Peninsula Panthers head coach Geoff Grimwood as an assistant coach to the Royals and head coach to the South Island Royals major midget hockey team. The WHL Royals recently affiliated with the local major midget club, formerly known as the South Island Thunderbirds.

Four players from Victoria are representing Team B.C. at the U16 Bantam Girls Baseball Canadian Championship in Halifax, N.S., Aug. 21 to 28. Mary Harding, Shayla Zeitz, Megan Thomson and Sofi Jansch have travelled to the Lower Mainland every weekend this summer to train with the team and play in tournaments in preparation for this week. Team B.C. is made up of girls from all over the Lower Mainland, the Island and the Okanagan. sports@vicnews.com

Grimwood has made the rounds among the junior ranks as an assistant coach to well respected BCHL bench boss Kent Lewis of the Powell River Kings, and also spent time on the Victoria Cougars bench with Mark Van Helvoirt. Returning for the 2012-13 season are coach Enio Sacilotto; strength, conditioning and skills coach Jeff Compton; and goaltending coach Brady Robinson. The Royals open the preseason in Kamloops on Aug. 30, and host a preseason game Sept. 15. sports@vicnews.com

For pretty much every stroke, pedal and step of the way on Sunday, Andrew Russell’s thoughts were with Andrew Russell one very wins the special perKelowna Apple son. Triathlon. The 30-year-old Victoria resident dedicated his final appearance at the Pushor Mitchell Apple Triathlon to his terminally ill mom, Ann Russell. And he couldn’t have asked for a better result on a scorching Kelowna afternoon as Russell captured the elite Olympic distance race in one hour 56 minutes 21 seconds. Russell moved to Victoria from Revelstoke five years ago and won his first race on the International Triathlon Union circuit in Magog, Que., last month. In that race, he outduelled Saanich’s Matt Sharpe for first place with Sharpe finishing second. This time it was another Victoria athlete, Andrew McCartney, who finished the 1.5 km swim, 40 km bike, and 10 km run in second place, nine seconds back of Russell. Joe Maloy of the U.S.A. was third and Sharpe was fourth. “It’s my seventh year in the elite and to win here as close to home as possible, it’s a really special moment,” said an emotional Russell after the race. “I really did it for my mom; she’s quite sick. And this is the end of my short-course career, so there’s no better way to finish it off.” For the first time in five years, the Apple Triathlon didn’t serve as the Canadian championships, and was therefore without some the biggest names in Canadian triathlon. Simon Whitfield, Kirk Jones and Paula Findlay didn’t compete in Kelowna. Still, it didn’t take any of the sheen off of the victory UVic Vikes track and field athlete Ellen Pennock’s win in the women’s elite race on Sunday. The 19-year-old won the Apple title convincingly in her first race at the elite level. sports@vicnews.com
