Hearing

Upgrade of bridge spread out The City of Courtenay has added in some night work on the Fifth Street Bridge in an effort to speed up the rehabilitation project. The single-lane closure has resulted in daytime traffic congestion in downtown Courtenay. “We are monitoring the traffic situation very closely,” said Kevin Lagan, the City’s director of operational services. “We’re in constant communication with the contractor to tweak our traffic management plan and help decrease congestion whenever possible.” While daytime work between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. is continuing, Mainroad South Island Contracting will also be working on the bridge at night in an effort to reduce the duration of traffic congestion. Crews will be working between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. from Monday, Aug. 27 to Friday, Aug. 31. Any work that can be reasonably completed without exceeding ambient noise levels will be conducted at night. The contractor will be utilizing additional noise and light mitigation techniques to ensure minimal impact to the nearby residents. Doing some work at night will allow the contractor to reduce the amount of time required for daytime lane closures. During night time work the bridge will be open to traffic in both directions. Traffic control personnel will be on-site to establish single lane alternating traffic. The bridge work involves ... see TRAFFIC ■ 2

Coal mine still subject to environmental review Scott Stanfield Record Staff

The proposed Raven Underground Coal Mine project is still subject to federal scrutiny, unlike nearly 500 other projects in B.C. in the wake of a revised Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. According to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agen-

The mine is expected to produce about 30 million tonnes of coal and rock over a 16-year period. The product would be trucked to a facility in Port Alberni. The total mine site surface footprint is expected to be about 200 hectares along with two hectares at the port facility. A comprehensive study report needs to be provided to the fed-

eral government “no later than six months of government time after CEAA 2012 came into force,” environmental assessment officer Rob Hajdù said by e-mail. The proposed mine has been met with widespread opposition at public hearings and during a public comment period. CoalWatch Comox Valley ... see PROCESS ■ 2

replacing road surface concrete on the bridge itself, as well as the bridge joints which link the bridge to land on either side. While the City recognizes the impact these repairs have had during the busy summer driving season, the repairs are being done now for a reason. “This work requires dry, non-humid weather to ensure good coating adhesion to

the steel and concrete epoxy sealing repairs,” noted Lagan. “Working in the wetter months increases the potential for costly delays. We also need to work within the window set out by Fisheries and Oceans Canada to reduce the risk to aquatic life.” The City has adjusted traffic light patterns along the detour route to help accommodate the extra traffic. While the repairs

have been challenging, Lagan says they are necessary to extend the life of the Fifth Street Bridge. “It’s extremely important that we maintain our infrastructure,” he said. “These bridge repairs have made it clear how much we depend on the Fifth Street Bridge. We need to take good care of it so it remains structurally sound and

safe for commuters.” For more information and updates visit www.courtenay.ca or contact the Project Engineer, Ian Whitehead at 250-338-5495, the contractor, David Tureene at 250-8801981 or MainRoad Contractings 24-hour communication line, 1-866-904-0209. — City of Courtenay

Union Bay canoodling tree goes viral on TV,Web Erin Haluschak Record Staff

It was a slip of the tongue, a misunderstanding, an innocent proposition, but no matter what it’s called, it was a word CTV News anchor Andrew Johnson would like to take back. And it was all because of a tree in Union Bay. Last Tuesday, Janette Glover Geidt of the Union Bay Historical Society explained to CTV Vancouver Island’s Bruce Williams in a story about Union Bay celebrating 70 years, how a tree that was once near the Union Bay Hall was used for “canoodling” under in the 1940s and ‘50s. “Did people canoodle in Union Bay?” asked Williams. “They did canoodle in Union Bay!” replied Glover Geidt with a laugh. In a segue to the weather report following the story, Johnson accidently propositioned colleague Astrid

Braunschmidt to “... canoodle before you get into it (the weather report).” With a look of equal shock and bemusement, Braunschmidt, clearly aware of the definition, replied, “We’re not going to be canoodling ... what?” “I thought canoodle meant chat,” replied Johnson, who was then informed by a producer of what the word really meant — to kiss and cuddle amorously. “Take it away, get me off camera,” Johnson said with a laugh. News site gather.com called the slip-up “one of the biggest news gaffes in recent history.” The video has gone viral and made its way on the Today Show and Anderson Cooper’s RidicuList on CNN, but Glover Geidt said all the attention on the video should put Union Bay on the international map. “I didn’t even think about the word canoodling when I said it,” she explained. “The boys and girls would usu-

ally come out from the hall after dances and canoodle under the tree.” As her grandchildren have kept her in the loop on her TV appearances, Glover Geidt noted she has seen some of the clips but admitted she never thought she would be featured on CNN. Although she isn’t sure if the story has increased the number of visitors to Union Bay, she did note more people have asked to purchase ribbons to tie on to the tree — a fundraising campaign to raise money to restore the vintage wood in the Union Bay Post Office. Despite the now-infamous video, one question remained: Do people still canoodle under the tree in Union Bay? “I doubt it,” replied Glover Geidt. “This happened in the ‘40s and ‘50s when the community hall was right besides the tree (prior to the move to its current location). It’s a lot more public now.”

ANCHORMAN ANDREW JOHNSON of CTV Vancouver Island floored Astrid Braunschmidt by suggesting they canoodle.

Flu shots mandatory in B.C. for health workers

Renée Andor Record Staff

B.C. will be the first province in Canada requiring health-care workers to get the influenza vaccine or wear masks when on the job — and not everyone is happy about it. The policy change — announced late last week by the Ministry of Health and to be enforced this year — applies to healthauthority staff, physicians and residents, volunteers, students, contractors and vendors who come into contact with patients. According to the Ministry, historic vaccination rates among health-care workers, volunteers and students have been less than 50 per cent, even though the vaccination is offered for free by health authorities. B.C. Nurses Union Pacific Rim chair Jo Taylor said she always got the vaccine before she became a BCNU chair and stopped coming into contact with patients, but she was

The fire chief in Fanny Bay figures the attending members of his team probably prevented a destructive blaze early Monday after responding quickly to a dispatch call. The volunteer department in the community south of Courtenay received the call around 12:30 a.m. Eight minutes later, chief Peter Golden and five others had suited up and departed for 430 Berray Rd. A caretaker was at the building, the basement of which was full of smoke. Golden said there was no sign of flames but the team could smell something burning in the basement. They searched the premises for about an hour, running in a hose in case the basement burst into flames.

not impressed with the policy change initially and neither were some other BCNU members. “I’ve had many members contact me about this because they want it to be a choice whether they have historically chosen to have it or not. This felt heavyhanded initially and they are reacting,” said Taylor. “I do think that it has value and understand that value, and like the union I support the program but it just shouldn’t be punitive and there should be education that goes with it,” Taylor said. “Nurses want to care for their patients safely and can make those care decisions whether it’s wearing a mask or having the vaccine.” On Monday, the BCNU, Health Employ-

Staples really stocking the lockers Renée Andor Record Staff

Pens. Pencils. Paper. Although these items are the building blocks of success in school, some families struggle to give their kids these supplies, and some of those families live right in the Comox Valley. Staples Canada has been helping to ensure kids get the back-toschool supplies they need for years with its Stock the Lockers campaign, and the Staples store in Courtenay has participated in the campaign since it first opened about eight years ago. “It’s really taken off,” said Courtenay Staples general manager Arnie Harnden. “Our associates, our staff really embrace it. Some of them came up from families that maybe struggled a bit when they were kids going to school, so they understand the need, and really support it. It’s a great cause, it’s really been good.” The store started taking donations in mid-July and as of Monday had raised about $4,300. With a couple of weeks left to go, Harnden is confident the store will meet or exceed its goal of $5,500 for the campaign, which will wrap up Sept. 10 or 14. Last year, the store raised about $3,800. Harnden works with School District 71’s director of elementary education Allan Douglas, who speaks to school staff to find out which families should receive help. “The teachers and principals in the schools know who the families are that are struggling with supporting their kids with their supplies,” Harnden said. “And then they make sure that it gets to the families who need the support for their sup-

As an example, Matyas noted the company is a big supporter of Special Olympics. It’s a partnership that’s been running for about 15 years, and Staples now represents 15 per cent of Special Olympics’ operating revenue. “It’s not something that we’re johnnycome-latelies on, it’s something that we’ve been doing, really since 1991,” he said.

COMOX VALLEY RECORD • Wednesday, August 29, 2012 FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice

Safety increasing at NIC campuses Systems will be upgraded using latest technology Record Staff North Island College campuses will soon have improved and upgraded campus safety systems, thanks to $652,000 in capital funding from the Province. The upgrades are designed to help ensure campus infrastructure and operational systems are performing at optimal levels, which is important to keep B.C.’s campuses in top operating shape, according to the Ministry of Advanced Education. Work at the Camp-

bell River, Comox Valley and Port Alberni campuses is expected to be completed by the end of the summer. NIC’s director of college and community relations Susan Auchterlonie noted the funding will be used to upgrade the schools’ emergency response systems, including lighting and fire systems; to erect safety railings in the Campbell River campus theatre; and to improve emergency notification systems, which would be used in the event of an emergency closure, at all of NIC’s campuses. “All systems were functioning well, but this funding enables us to keep current and up-to-date with the latest technology,” she

JAN LINDSAY

added. “We do expect that the work will be completed within the next few weeks.” The college and government also announced $507,000 in one-time funding, which will be used to offer short-term training in the region. The college expects to create up to 63 tradesrelated seats over the

coming year, including trades foundation skills, carpentry and campground maintenance. “We are very pleased to have received the one-time funding, as it will enable us to work with industry through NIC’s Natural Resource and Applied Research Centre, located in Campbell River, to support the economic development of the region,” said NIC president Jan Lindsay. “Working directly with industry we will develop specific training programs to serve the educational needs of both industry and our population. One example is the potential development of an aquaculture technician program in conjunction with industry profes-

sionals.” B.C. taxpayers are providing over $22 million for North Island College’s operations this year — including an allowance for general infrastructure maintenance — up from $18.3 million in 2001/02. The number of funded student spaces at the college has increased five per cent since 2003/04. More than $10 million in capital investments have been made at the college since 2001, including construction of a new skills development and trades training facility in Courtenay. Comox Valley MLA Don McRae pointed out the Province’s contributions to the college are important. “We’ve made significant investments in North Island College over the past decade, helping to build a welleducated and trained work force in the region,” said McRae. “This funding will allow NIC to ensure they have the modern facilities students need to grow their careers and meet the demands of B.C. employers.”

Donated pennies, etc, add up to $1,000 for charities What is a football field and a half long and weighs over 550 pounds? It is $959.45 worth of pennies! Torry and Sons customers, staff and their families, business partners and community members have generously donated their pennies, small change and even a couple of bills. Torry and Sons topped up the collection to an even $1,000 and this has been split between You Are Not Alone and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. YANA helps local families that need to travel to access medical treatment for their children. The JDRF is dedicated to finding a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Both chari-

ties were presented with $500 last week. When it was announced that pennies were no longer being minted and soon to be out of circulation, Rebecca Nelson of the accounting department at Torry and Sons had a brilliant idea: Before the pennies meet their demise — donate them to help kids live healthy and fulfilling lives! Rebecca’s nephew Cooper has Type 1 Diabetes; getting kids the help they need when they need it is a cause that is very important to her. Rebecca’s great idea blossomed from considering a personal donation to involving the entire community. Torry and Sons approached their business and community partners to help collect pennies from their staff, customers and friends. The request was met with an overwhelming positive response. A huge amount of gratitude goes to the following businesses and their customers who participated: Kinetic Construction, Atlas Café, Presley and

No. 1 in Vernon Cadet Oressa Mathers-Cyr of Comox received the award as top cadet in 17 Platoon at the final parade of Delta Training Group at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. Cadet Mathers-Cyr is a member of 189 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps of Comox. Mathers-Cyr attended the six-week Army Cadet Marksmanship Instructor Course at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre where cadets learned the principles

of Army Cadet Marksmanship, how to lead marksmanship activities, how to assist the Range Safety Officer and how to coach younger cadets. During each summer, more than 1,150 army, sea and air cadets from western Canada will spend up to six weeks in Vernon, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and forming new friendships. — Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre

received their power pilot wings and Private Pilot’s licence on the final Wings Graduation Parade, in recognition of their accomplishments. Cox and Ostapovich are among 45 Air Cadets from across British Columbia who spent six weeks learning to fly the Schweizer 2-33A glider to Transport Canada’s licensing standards. “The Transport Canada exam was the hardest part for me,” Ostapovich explained, “I didn’t expect it to be that difficult. The best moment for me this summer was finding out that so many of us passed the course.” Ostapovich also became certified to fly on the winch and will get her familiarization rating in the fall. Cox was hooked into the gliding program by one of the gliding instructors, OCdt Heather Heim, who got him to be ground crew during the fall familiarization season. “I had always wanted to be a pilot, and my working ground crew really got the ball rolling and initiated me to get on the Glider Pilot Scholarship Course,” said Cox. Harmsworth, Snook, and 37 other cadets trained at one of the three flight centres hosting the Power Pilot Scholarship Course in B.C. this summer.

That’s Ducky

They trained for seven weeks on the Cessna 152 and 172 at both the Victoria Flying Club in Victoria and the Pacific Flying Club in Boundary Bay. “These young men and women have worked very hard this summer to become licensed pilots and we are all very proud of their accomplishments,” said Lieut.Col Tony Appels, commanding officer of RGS (Pacific). The Air Cadet program is a co-educational organization for youth aged 12 to 18, sponsored by the Canadian Forces in partnership with the civilian Air Cadet League of Canada. There are over 3,300 Air Cadets enrolled in 57 squadrons throughout B.C.

After eight weeks of long hours, intensive training, life lessons, and new friendships, the cadets and officers aboard Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Quadra still have time to help YANA with their 12th annual cheque presentation. Through the months of July and August they managed to raise over $3,000 for the charitable cause, putting their 12-summer total to over $22,500. HMCS Quadra accomplishes this by a variety of events such as YANA Thursdays where the staff can make a donation to wear civilian clothing for the day. Chief Petty Officer Darrell MacKay selflessly donates numerous items to the ship and in turn, hosts a Chief’s Auction where the staff can bid for these prized Navy items. HMCS Quadra Sea Cadet Summer Training Centre recently completed its 56th year of operations and trained over 1,000

cadets throughout the summer from every Canadian province. The training centre is located at Goose Spit

near Comox. For more information on Sea Cadets, visit www.cadets.ca. — Sea Cadets

School has open house Beachcombers Community School is registering for the school year. The oceanside school offers Montessori-inspired academics, a special coastal studies program from kindergarten to Grade 7, dedicated arts and music teachers, and water sports. The schoolhouse is a beautiful environmental with natural wood floors, lots of windows looking out on the ocean, and a kind and gentle approach to learning with quality academics. Small class sizes ensure individualized attention. The school, in its third year, is drawing interest from Comox Valley and Lighthouse District families. “There has been such a waiting list for our morning preschool that we have decided to open up a program for two afternoons a week, to accommodate some of these children. The program has been licenced as childcare, which also allows children attending the morning preschool program to stay all day for those days,” says principal Wendy Preston. The school also has one or two openings in each of the primary school classes. The primary school operates similar to the Montessori model of multi-age classrooms. Beachcombers Community School is hosting an open house this Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m. Beachcombers is at 7375 Island Highway in Fanny Bay. Take the Old Island Highway south to Fanny Bay. At the government wharf, turn away from the ocean onto Station Road. For more information, see BeachcombersSchool.ca or phone 778-427-4007. — Beachcombers Education Society

Co-op barbecue helps Tour Despite a weekend jam-packed with popular events, members and staff of Comox District Co-op managed to raise more than $1,000 for Cops for Cancer’s Tour de Rock on Saturday. When the suds finally stopped flying and the last hot dog was hungrily consumed, the Co-op’s annual Tour de Rock barbecue and car wash had netted $920 in donations. Once the Co-op adds its own contribution of two cents per litre, that sum will increase significantly. “We’ve gotten such a positive reaction from our members, and even non-members came out to support the event,” says Susan Opheim, office manager of Comox District Co-op. “We had a really great turnout; it’s so great to see people making a point to participate and to donate. “And the weather was perfect,” she adds. “We couldn’t have asked for a better day!” While nice weather never hurts, Opheim says it was much more than sunshine that kept them smiling on Saturday. “Cops for Cancer is just such a good cause, and that really is our biggest motivator,” she explains. “We’re out there washing cars and selling food off the barbecue, and the day just flies by. By the end of the day, we’ve helped contribute to something that can make such a big difference in the lives of children

THE VALLEY REGULATORS will travel back in time this weekend to the Wild West for the SASS Canadian championships.

Head for the hills and travel all the way back to Wild West You and your family are invited to take in some exciting cowboy action shooting at the 2012 SASS Canadian championships on the Labour Day weekend at the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association. One hundred cowgirl and cowboy competitors of all ages will don colourful authentic western apparel and try to shoot their way to a championship title. Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) members share an interest in preserving the history of the Old West and competitive target shooting. Every SASS member selects a shooting alias Anytime is Prime Time

based on a character or profession from the Old West or western films. Another requirement is to adopt a shooting costume and most shooters and their families develop a western wardrobe for day and evening wear. Buckskins, Victorian ball gowns, period military uniforms and gamblers in their finery are all part of the fun. Blackpowder shooters and smokeless powder shooters alike strap on their six-guns, grab their rifles and shotguns, and head into Boomtown for three days of noise, smoke, fun and excitement. Courtenay Fish and Game cowboy action shooters known as NOW OPEN DAILY at 4:30! Check Out Our Menu Online!

the Valley Regulators are once again hosting this annual event after a one-year hiatus. Thousands of volunteer hours have gone into the construction of

Boomtown. Their newest buildings include a bank and barbershop, in addition to the mine shaft, saloon, general store, jail, Boot Hill cemetery,

fort, and remittance man’s house. When the smoke and dust settles, we can count on witnessing some great shooting from the competitors

from Canada, USA and Europe. Some of the best shooters in Canada come from our very own Comox Valley. Admission is free and the public is invited on

Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 and 2 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Contact Phil Peterson at 250-334-3479 or keanauto@shaw.ca for more information. — Valley Regulators

Car wash aiding YANA Water and suds will splash at the Canex parking lot this Wednesday, Aug. 29 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. as members of 19 Air Maintenance Squadron host a car wash to raise funds for YANA (You Are Not Alone). “19 Air Maintenance Squadron is proud to continue our support for this charity that benefits local families,” said Maj. Chris Shapka, Commanding Officer of 19 AMS. “As military members we know the benefit and value of strong family bonds during times of need and our members look forward to raising money for YANA through team building and fun activities throughout the year.” 19 AMS has supported YANA since 2009 through car washes and providing members to volunteer at other YANA fundraisers. Last year’s car wash raised $1,000 and the volunteers are hoping to raise $1,200 to $1,400 this year.

Acting Wing commander, Lieut.-Col. Wayne Joy and Wing Chief Warrant Office David Bolster will be in attendance to help scrub cars. YANA (You Are Not Alone) was founded in 1986, and is committed

to supporting families of School District 71 in the Comox Valley with children between the ages of 0 and 19 receiving medical treatment that is unavailable locally. — 19 Air Maintenance Squadron

Warren back with two good arms In May 2010, M. Morgan Warren vowed that a compound fracture of her right wrist would not prevent her from attending the Kitty Coleman Arts and Bloom Festival. She even produced three small paintings with her hand encased to the thumb and fingers in a fibreglass cast. “They weren’t too bad,” she says, “though I couldn’t get the control I normally can as the cast was in the way.” The good news is her wrist healed completely and she is headed to this weekend’s Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens Artisans’ Festival. Known for their exquisite detail, Warren’s watercolours of birds adorn many private collections around the world, including those of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Warren also has a degree in English and creative writing and has combined her abilities in a calendar to give us an insightful new perspective in paint and words on the rare moments in avian lives — ones which we humans do not usually see. Warren will display her new originals, giclees and calendar for sale and be talking about a coming illustrated children’s book in Santa’s Barn at the beautiful

Fiddlers fiddling, pig roasting

THE DAYGLO ABORTIONS will invade the Waverley Hotel this Friday night.

Dayglos very controversial File the Dayglo Abortions under controversial/metal/punk/alternative rock/for mature audiences only! In 1988, a Nepean, Ont., police officer instigated a criminal investigation of the Dayglos after his daughter brought home a copy of Here Today, Guano Tomorrow. Two albums featured in the resulting trial; the covers and the lyrical content being showcased by the prosecution. Here Today, Guano Tomorrow had a cover showing a picture of a hamster eating from a box of chocolates on nice satin sheets, along with a glass of wine. A gun points at the hamster, and the back cover shows a depiction of the resulting carnage.

A warm summer evening, a whole pig roasting on the barbecue, a barn full of fiddlers and dancers — a great way for the whole family to finish a wonderful summer. On Sept. 8, L’Arche Comox Valley will throw a Pig Roast and Barn Dance at the Merville Community Hall. Fiddlejam, the Valley’s much-loved fiddling ensemble, will provide the music for dancing. During the meal, John and Joanne van Egmond will sing songs comic and romantic. The meal climaxes with a dessert auction by local cuisine artists. Winners are encouraged to share with neighbours. Its first Pig Roast last year was a huge success, drawing some 200 people to the spacious hall and grounds. People met their friends and neighbours as they lined up to have their pork sliced directly off the pig and then piled their plates with a variety of salads and chilies. Youngsters had a great time racing around the grounds

September brings the very best of summer days in the Comox Valley. Slightly cooler but still usually sunny, the days are shorter and the nights fall at a little more reasonable hour. These are the best days to get out and enjoy. Here are some suggestions: Pick juicy blackberries for free at roadsides and patches all over the Comox Valley. Volunteer at Lush Comox Valley to pick fruit off of Valley residents’ back yard trees and share the bounty. Volunteer at the SPCA to walk a dog. Watch the stars come out at night from Marine Drive in Royston. Walk forever in shin deep warm water at low tide at sandy Kye Bay. Find a friend and learn how to find a geocache.

Zocalo CafĂŠ much more than just a coffeeshop Record Staff

OWNER CATHERINE BELL takes a rare break at the Zocalo CafĂŠ and Gallery, sitting in front of some of the artwork that routinely adorns the downtown Courtenay eatery. At right, the delicious spinach and fruit salad. PHOTOS BY MARK ALLAN

wich and cream of celery soup. The menu says the cheese is melted to perfection, and Bob seemed to agree. He said it was just what he needed for lunch. I was seduced by the wild salmon burger, which came with pesto mayo, lettuce, tomato

and (for me) irresistible red onion. All of the ingredients were first rate, including the multigrain kaiser. I made the mistake of also ordering a spinach and fruit salad â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not a mistake because it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it was great. I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

Co

People have actually brought food into the Zocalo CafĂŠ and Gallery, says proprietor Catherine Bell. For them and anybody else not aware of the kitchen in the back, she has one simple message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the Zocalo, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more than a coffeeshop.â&#x20AC;? My lunch companion Bob and I will vouch for that. Yes, the Zocalo began as a coffeeshop and was an Internet cafĂŠ for a time. Since Bell got out of politics a couple of years ago, the former Vancouver Island North MP has evolved the Zocalo well beyond its beginnings. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go there to order a steak dinner that will cause you to loosen your belt a notch, you can still find a selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner food that will satisfy. While the Zocalo is not the exotic southof-the-border eatery the name suggests (itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spanish for meeting place), Bell and her inventive chefs put some clever touches on their dishes. The day Bob and I showed up for a late lunch, Catherine said their lunch special had sold out. The Thai green curry prawn noodle salad disappeared â&#x20AC;&#x153;really quick. It was really yummy, the word got out and it went.â&#x20AC;? The Zocalo is open for breakfast every day of the week and Bell said she took the breakfast menu and â&#x20AC;&#x153;kicked it up a notch.â&#x20AC;? With dinner servings Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays that began more than a year ago, Bell has had to expand her complement of chefs. For example, she recently hired Andrew Martin, formerly of Toto in Comox. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our food is good,â&#x20AC;? Bell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homemade. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funky, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delicious, creative. We have some standards like chicken club and BLT, but we also have daily soup we make from scratch and daily specials we create. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just tell the cooks, tell me what you want to create and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get you the ingredients,â&#x20AC;? Bell

expect it to be that large. I also didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anticipate it would be as good as it was. Besides a generous amount of moist spinach leaves, the big bowl included several types of fresh, delicious fruit. A topping of raspberry vinaigrette would have been very satisfying in itself, but there was more. A crumbly substance generously sprinkled on top at first looked like bacon bits. Not so. Sweet, but with a distinctive other taste, it baffled me. A helpful server said it was ginger rolled in honey and secret ingredients that she was not at liberty to discuss. The Zocalo also does special themed dinners such as Greek Night, Cuban Night and tapas. Parties booking the 50-seat venue can request a themed experience. Besides the food, Bell regularly presents live music for the evening openings. The Zocalo is licensed, too. If this werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough variety, artwork regularly adorns the walls, accounting for the gallery part of the placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. In closing, I would be remiss if I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention that the Zocalo does indeed serve a large variety of coffees in case all youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for is a coffeeshop. The Zocalo CafĂŠ and Gallery at the corner of Fifth and Cliffe in Courtenay is open for breakfast Mondays to Fridays

Verhagen clinches Sprint car points championship Annual Canadian-American Demolition Derby goes this weekend at Saratoga Speedway Andy Guest Contributor

Saturday night’s racing at Saratoga Speedway was held under clear skies with a nip of fall in the air. It was the last visit of the season for the Island Dwarf cars, Motorcycles and Wilroc Lite Sprint cars. The Sprint cars season point championship was up for grabs as only four points separated the top two cars heading into the 30-lap main event. Victoria drivers Matt Verhagen and Jeff Bird were the only two with a shot at the championship. Verhagen had the lead, meaning Bird had to place well in the nine-car race to have any chance to claim the title. The issue was decided on the 11th lap. Bird had chased down leader Duane Zeinstra and was attempting to pass the Black Creek driver on the inside coming through the dog-leg when his front right tire made contact with the #2 car, damaging his front end, sending him into the pits and leaving the championship in Verhagen’s hands. Verhagen chased down Zeinstra but couldn’t overtake him and had to settle for second as Zeinstra cruised to the win. Verhagen put the pressure on Bird right away as he qualified fastest with a quick 14.669-second lap to grab top points in qualifying, Bird returned

the favour by winning the first heat. Zeinstra, who also serves as the speedway tech man for the Bomber and Crash to Pass cars, picked up his first of two wins on the night in the trophy dash while Victoria’s Chris Root won the second heat. The Dwarf cars saw Jim Pridge the night’s big winner as he took both heat races and the 15-lap main event while Campbell River’s Stewart Lee got behind the wheel of a Dwarf car for the first time and captured the fourlap trophy dash. The Motorcycles also finished off their season with Joel Forth a double winner in the trophy dash and heat race while the main event win went to Anthony Grey. Both the IMCA Modifieds and Bomber cars ran their penultimate race of the 2012 season as they close out their season on Sept. 8. In Modified racing Tim Openshaw posted fast time with a quick 15.555 lap. Cumberland’s Kevin Noble, the defending point champion, won the heat race and main event with Parksville’s Pat Brown taking the trophy dash win. Bomber cars point leader Stewart Lee assured himself his second point championship in three years after he posted fast time then ran away with the win in the 20-lap main event. The Larsen brothers matched each other for wins as Darren took

Entertaining tennis at Lewis Park Open The turnout was low but the spirits were high at the Comox Valley Tennis Club’s Lewis Park Open, held Aug. 18-19 in Courtenay. “Many of the matches were very entertaining to watch,” a tourney spokesperson said. “In particular, the Men’s A doubles match featuring Mike Dewynter/Kent Marley against Joe Yelder and Rob Calder (who was filling in for Doug Preston) was a crowd pleaser. Rob displayed great court coverage and superior defensive skills – enough said! The onlookers were treated to a chagrined Mike Dewynter dropping to the ground and performing pushups at the command of his partner for failing to hold up his end of the court during a particular point.” Working behind the scenes, Pat and Marion McGrath purchased, prepared and served morning and noon refreshments for the players throughout the tournament. They were the first to arrive and the last to leave

each night. “... an extra special thank you for your warm hospitality which was greatly appreciated by all of the participants. “(Also thanks to) everyone else who helped make the tournament a success – from stuffing gift bags, running errands such as picking up the balls and sponsor banners, to washing a dish, helping run the draw desk, preparing the courts, setting up chairs, hanging sponsor banners and making sure Kimmie didn’t get locked in the washroom. “Of course, without the participants, there would not have been a tournament. Thank you for your good sportsmanship and your cooperation, cheerfulness and patience throughout the weekend. Last but not least, the generosity of our sponsors enhanced the players’ tournament experience. We gratefully thank and acknowledge Costco, Thrifty Foods, High Strung Racquets, Harbourview Therapeutic Massage, Old House Village Hotel &

His craft of functional kitchenware has provided a second income for his family of eventually seven children for nearly thirty years. With his initial job being carpentry, Garry eased his way into the pottery business by providing one-of-a-kind pieces to close friends and family, and even trading locally at farmers markets for food and household necessities. Since then, Garry’s work has been recognized all over and he has had the privilege of walking into homes and witnessing his pottery’s longevity live on.

VALLEAU, ELIZABETH (LIZ) - 1933-2012

:PVS$PNNVOJUZ  :PVS$MBTTJmFET

Shewan, Leslie

We are saddened to announce that Liz Valleau has passed away. She died of a heart attack while taking a swim in Lake Ontario near her cabin at Point Petre, Prince Edward County. She was doing something she loved to do in a place she loved to be. Liz (nee Hollis) was born in Leicester, England and grew up in Little Bentley, Essex, on her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketgarden farm with her parents and two sisters, Joanna and Vicki. In England Liz met her ďŹ rst husband, John Valleau, a Canadian studying at Cambridge University. She had her ďŹ rst son, Nicholas, and they moved to Toronto via Ottawa. She had a second son, Simon, in Toronto. John and Liz separated in 1970, and remained friends for the rest of her life. Later, she moved to Glenora, Prince Edward County where she operated a gourmet bed and breakfast called Stone Mills House Restaurant, in a 200-year old stone house on the shore of Lake Ontario. This was the culmination of her everlasting love of food and cooking. Liz loved â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and loved swimming in the lake outside her home. The ferry operators loved her swimming near their route too! Stone Mills House was quickly recognized as a premier gourmet destination and was noted in Where to Eat in Canada. Tiring of the long hours, after a few short years she returned to Toronto where she continued to be active in all things food, operating a gourmet store, catering and writing reviews for Toronto Life magazine. Liz bought a small cabin in the County in 1985, and has enjoyed many periods there. She also worked as a secretary for many years in Toronto, for the Steelworkers and for members of both the Ontario and BC NDP caucuses. Liz married Brad Robinson in 1988 and they moved to the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island in 1992, where Liz resided for the last 20 years of her life. Liz felt she had come home to the valley. Liz volunteered and worked with devotion at the Comox Valley Art Gallery for many years. Liz found many deep and abiding friendships in the area; those she described as her â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;chosen familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Opera nights, great food, lively discussions about art, politics, Trollope (and others, perhaps) enjoyed with her friends; these were her passions. Liz was unpretentious, mischievous, loved meeting people and always saw the good side. She loved to write notes both playful and instructive. Liz will be lovingly remembered and missed by her sons, Nicholas and Simon (and Ellen), Leslie, her grandchildren, Jessica, Robin, Dylan, Daniel and Jeremy, the rest of her family and her many friends. Liz would have appreciated, as a gesture of condolence, a donation to the NDP or the Comox Valley Art Gallery (http://www.comoxvalleyartgallery.com/support.html). A memorial gathering will take place at the Comox Valley Art Gallery on September 22, 2012, from 2-5PM.

It is with great sadness to announce the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and friend, Leslie on August 19, 2012 in Cumberland, BC at the age of 55. She was born in Brantford, Ontario on March 31, 1957. Leslie was married to Michael Shewan on September 6, 2003. Leslie had a career in cooking for many establishments. She had a passion for gardening and spending time with her grandchildren. She is survived by her children: Danielle (Adrian) Angela, Roxanne, and Laura; grandchildren: Justin, Tamara, Sidney, Braden Shealeen, Brandon, Austin, Hayden, Alina, Anna, Isabelle, and Ethan; sister Susan (George) and nieces: April and Jasmine. She will be deeply missed and always be in our hearts. A private family gathering was held on August 27th.

WILLIAMS, Marleen Alice It is with great sadness that the family of Marleen Williams announce that she has passed away peacefully on August 17, 2012 following a courageous battle with cancer. The daughter of Hugh (Plug) and Gladys Miller, Marleen was born in Cumberland, BC on October 17, 1944. Marleen is survived by her loving daughter Shelley (Charles), her husband Dave Williams, his son Gary (Dena), daughter Deborah and step grandchildren Stephanie and Cameron. Marleen is also survived by her siblings Tom (Marie), Dennis (Beth), Glenda (Scott) and Kevin (Kathy) and many nieces and nephews, all who will miss her love and support. Marleen will be missed by her many friends especially her long time friend Dorothy (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dodieâ&#x20AC;?) and Marg, her many coworkers and her Nova Scotia family. Marleen loved that she was a Cumberland girl (nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dustyâ&#x20AC;?) and proudly called Cumberland her â&#x20AC;&#x153;homeâ&#x20AC;?. She was part of the last graduating class of Cumberland High â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silence is Golden but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk anyways.â&#x20AC;? Marleenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s positive and sunny nature led to a career dealing with people and volunteering with children. Working at Corfield Motors, Scotiabank and Comox Valley Credit Union she took the extra time to chat while doing a professional job. Marleen enjoyed gardening, traveling, shopping, spending time with her friends and family and relaxing at the Horne Lake cabin. The family would like to thank Marleenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful doctor, Janis McLaughlin and the palliative care nurses at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital for their compassion and professional care to Marleen. A celebration of Marleenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held on Saturday, September 08, 2012 at the Cumberland Cultural Centre (lower floor, Seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centre) 2674 Dunsmuir Avenue, Cumberland, BC starting at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers the family suggests with thanks that donations be made to the Comox Valley Hospice Society or St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital Cancer Care Centre, 2137 Comox Avenue, Comox, BC V9M 1P2.

Clark, Alice Aurelia of Courtenay, passed away peacefully on Tuesday August 21, 2012 at the New Horizons Care Centre, Campbell River. Born November 7, 1922 in Limerick, Saskatchewan. She is survived and will be dearly missed by her husband of 65 years, Max; daughter Paulette; and her brother Don Calimente. Alice was an active member of St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church for many years, and in her leisure volunteered with the Evergreen Seniors, was an avid curler, and worked tirelessly with the St. Andrews Church Restoration Project. A gathering of family and friends in Celebration of her Life will take place on Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 2:00 pm from Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation and Reception Centre, 1101 Ryan Road. Followed by fellowship and refreshments in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Green Room and Outdoor Patioâ&#x20AC;? of the funeral home. For those wishing, donations in Aliceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory to New Horizons Special Care Unit, 850-14th Street Campbell River, BC would be appreciated.

Blair Polischuk

July 5, 1963-August 21, 2012 Father, Husband, Son, Brother, Uncle, Friend, Teacher, Mentor, Musician, Artist. It is with a sad heart that we announce the passing of our dearly loved Blair. He gave so much wisdom, strength and courage during his 2 year journey living with ALS. He passed with peace and acceptance and a smile on his face. Blair was a proud and loving father to his 12 year old son Max. They shared a deep appreciation for listening and creating music together and had many many hours of true connection with song and word. For 23 years, Blair shared his life with his wife, best friend and soul mate Cathy Silversides. He was dearly loved and will be forever missed by his parents Arnold and Anne Polischuk and brother Darrin Polischuk and wife Paulina. He will be fondly remembered as â&#x20AC;&#x153;awesome Uncle Blairâ&#x20AC;? by all his nieces and nephews (Amanda, Jessica, Jay, Niko and Kyra). His quick and often quirky sense of humour was always understood and well appreciated by his sister-in laws Karen Christie and husband Wade and Linda Davidson and husband Rick as well as his mother and fatherin law Pat & Dave Silversides. Blair was a wonderful storyteller and captivated all his friends during our many neighborhood dinner â&#x20AC;&#x153;clanâ&#x20AC;? parties. Good food, good drinks and beautiful conversations we all shared will be forever remembered. Blair was passionate about everything he thought, did and said. He was intensely curious and fully embraced so many different joys in life: music, photography, business & marketing, teaching, cooking, bonsai, skiing, nature, fatherhood and friendship. Blair was so grateful for all the care received from his Angels which include his â&#x20AC;&#x153;assistantsâ&#x20AC;? Dana and Tammie, his Vancouver team at the ALS Clinic (Brigitte, Gwyn, Amy, Dr. Briemberg), his therapists at home (Shannon, Jen, Carol, Meg) and his physicians Dr. Konway and Dr. Fehlau. Thank you for your expertise, wisdom and care. We will forever miss you Blair, but take comfort in knowing you are with us, everywhere. We wish him best light and the good feel of musical rhythm forever. We love you, always. There will be a Gathering for Blair on Thursday September 6th at 3pm at the Union Bay Community Hall. Please join us. All are welcome. In lieu of gifts, donations can be made to the ALS Society of BC.

LONGLANDS WAS AWASH in pink when Golf Fore the Cure paid a visit during ladies night.

Pink-clad ladies golf ‘fore’ the cure It was a sea of pink with over 50 ladies “golfing fore the cure” during ladies night at Longlands Golf Course. Lynda Keele was voted “Pinkest Lady” with attire second to none, adorned in pink in support of breast cancer from head to toe, accessories and all. Lynn Osterman of the CVSGA and “Marty the Mascot” led a pack of ladies through nine holes of golf each with the opportunity to win a $5,000 hole-in-one sponsored by Investors Group Financial. “The overall evening was full of Pink Spirit,” said Mandy Baker of Investors Group. “Close to $500 was raised throughout the evening to support breast cancer and many stories were shared about how each of us are touched by the disease through friends, family or neighbours.” Near a patch of “rough” each lady swung their pitching wedge aiming at marshmallows for prizes. It proved not to be a challenge for six contestants, but it was Anne Farren and Heather Dean who walked away with prizes. Glayne, Donna, Bev and Jan who shotgunned hole #2 rounded out their evening as the Molson 6/7 team champions. Susan Mathie is supporting a new, white, leather Taylormade bag which was drawn from all ladies who were out having fun and sharing a common love for the game of golf and the battle against cancer. Lorrain Gargan and Jan Harding each came out closest to the pin on the front and back nine to win KP prizes. The Canadian Cancer Society, Canada’s longest standing cancer charity, has been making a difference in

the lives of Canadians since 1938. In 2011 an estimated 23,400 women were diagnosed with

breast cancer in British Columbia and 5,100 died of it. “As we face this harsh reality, there is hope,” Baker

said. “A special thank you to each and every lady who Golfed Fore the Cure. With your sup-

Simple question needed to clarify pipeline direction Perhaps Premier Christy Clark sees a battle with Alberta — over revenue from allowing the Enbridge pipeline to use B.C. to link Alberta oil with tankers on the Pacific Ocean — as the last hope to rally voters in time for the spring 2013 election campaign. It stands to reason, since the B.C. NDP has staked the opposed-to-pipeline position and the B.C. Conservatives have claimed the supportwith-conditions spot. However, by demanding that B.C. receive oil royalties from profits made from what flows through the pipeline, Clark is simply catering to those who already support the Enbridge proposal. Those opposed have said it is not about money, but the environment. Grand Chief Edward John, of the First Nations Summit political executive, summed it up when he said the B.C. Liberal government has missed the mark, stressing “B.C. First Nations’ traditional territories and pristine environment are not for sale.” John reminded Clark of the Supreme Court of Canada’s stance that there is a legal requirement for governments to “consult and accommodate” First Nations regarding any and all land and resource development initiatives in their respective territories. If First Nations cannot be convinced to allow a pipeline to be constructed through their territories, the pipeline simply will not be. With Clark’s demand having been rejected by Alberta Premier Alison Redford, with First Nations still on the sidelines and with strong opposition among the public, perhaps it would be wise for Clark to add a non-binding referendum question to the May 14, 2013 general election ballot. A simple question — Are you in favour of the Enbridge pipeline proposal? — could produce results that tell the government of the day which direction it should travel on this pipeline proposal. — Victoria News Record Question of the Week This week: Forty-eight per cent of respondents so far say they believe a proposal to build an oil refinery in northern B.C. is a good idea. Please share your opinion about this controversial issue. Visit www.comoxvalleyrecord. com and vote in the Poll on the mainpage. Th City of Courtenay has The added some night work on the Fifth Street Bridge in an effort to speed up the rehabilitation project and shorten traffic congestion.

Those of us who arise early to head off to our workplaces are starting to do so in the dark again as the days progressively grow shorter.

Traffic menace to pedestrians Dear editor, I live near 17th and Fitzgerald, which had a three-car accident followed by a four-car accident the following day just a week before work started on the Fifth Street Bridge. I see people on their electric scooters not even stop at these intersections and claim the right of way. Many times I have been able to touch the cars that graze by me while I am crossing, because of vehicles not paying attention at the intersections (mostly people on their cell phones). Now with the construction on Fifth, a single car pulls up to turn as the light is green (which is legal), didn’t have an opening to make it across when the light turned yellow, so they were stuck in the middle during the red and end up getting a ticket. Sometimes they make it into another makeshift lane but basically we have now three lanes in front of 17th and cars unable to cross when the light turned green the other way as well. Traffic was backed up to 13th

Street on Fitzgerald one way and even farther on Cliffe, as were the other roads. Pedestrians couldn’t even get across without dodging traffic and risking being hit. I wondered what would happen if there was an emergency. So, I was one of the callers that complained because I feel the City could have made preparations ahead. In my opinion this traffic was dangerous to pedestrians and seriously negligent. Why was there no traffic control plan in place to prevent the backup? I called the police, thinking they did traffic and crowd control in cities or following events but was told this is the City’s duty and to call them instead. I called the City and was transferred to a tape recording, so I left a message saying people couldn’t even cross the street and that I would go to the news with photos. By the time I tried to return home, the traffic lights were out staying a solid red so no one really could tell they were out. I

called the City again and crews responded fairly quickly. Fortunately this four-way stop system allowed for the traffic to flow but it was scary to watch. The news reported that the lights were adjusted to meet the traffic flow needs after the complaints, but I wonder how many people get tickets now for being caught in the middle at a red light. I think the only reason pedestrians were not hit is because traffic was mostly at a stop so we could zig zag around the vehicles. I hope people don’t modify their route by using the alleys at full speed as they did before; you still have to get on the main roads at some point. Thank you to all the people who let me and the neighbours in and out of our parking spots. I only had one person mouth me off last time the traffic was bad and it was not even busy that time. You’re all wonderful for being considerate to people who live near these intersections. April Bond, Courtenay

Protect public asset from profiteers Dear editor, Margaret MacDiarmid, minister of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government was quoted in the Vancouver Sun on July 12 as follows: “As I have said before with respect to the distribution and warehousing of liquor if we don’t find that there are savings for taxpayers, if it is not a good deal for British Columbians, we simply won’t be going ahead with this.” After expressing my concerns about privatization to Rich Coleman, minister of Energy and Mines and minister responsible for housing, I received this reply telling me something different: “In order to proceed, govern-

ment must be satisfied that British Columbia taxpayers will benefit from having a private sector service provider warehouse and distribute liquor in the province.” There is plenty of room here for chicanery in the guise of good business practice; what “satisfies” the government often appears driven by other motives than the public good. Semantics aside, I would like MacDiarmid’s assurance that the plan to privatize the Liquor Distribution Branch will be abandoned if they do not find that there are savings for taxpayers. I don’t mean saving a few minutes in a parking lot or the odd nickel on a bottle of wine, or the

short-sighted economy of selling off public assets without a business plan and without consulting the industry or the public. I especially don’t want to hear that relinquishing the current profitability of LDB is somehow a good deal for the citizens who own it. As Minister of Labour, MacDiarmid would likely be troubled most by the downgrade of LDB employees to minimum-wage, part-time work and consequent damage to the B.C. economy; but as she has expressed a concern for taxpayers, I would like to know that her government will protect this public asset from private profiteers.

Mining group defends process

MEMBERS OF THE Brodie Pratt family wear livestrong bracelets in solidarity.

Family very grateful Dear editor, We cannot begin to imagine how we can individually thank the hundreds of people in our community who graciously gave from their hearts to help our family and our son, Brodie Pratt, over the past four months during his illness and diagnosis of cancer. Between friends, family, volunteers, coworkers, acquaintances, and the universe — it was overwhelming and we witnessed a miracle! The endless food that was lovingly prepared nourished our bodies, the calls and cards picked our spirits up, and the hundreds of livestrong bracelets worn by others has shown visual encouragement for survivorship. In addition to all of this, the fundraiser/benefit at the Flying Canoe West Coast Pub organized by school district employees, family, and friends was incredible, successful, and fun for those that attended (SO wish we could have been there). We would also like to thank a number of St. Joseph’s Hospital staff who gave Brodie excellent care throughout his diagnosis in addition to many generously giv-

ing financial support. Because of people like you, Brodie will have his financial and medical needs assisted over the next year and enable him to heal without additional stress. Such a gift is priceless! Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes, because they have been heard. Thank you for your support, because it was needed. Thank you for your love and your light to help guide our way. Brodie has been through surgeries, treatments, plus aggressive chemo and has gained such amazing strength from all those that have surrounded our family. He has now finished the tough part of his journey and is now on the gentle but slow path to regain his health and strength. He is determined to win this battle. Once again, thank you to everyone for your never ending support, encouragement, love and motivation. You will never know how much this has meant to all our family and words cannot express our gratitude! We feel truly blessed. Brodie Pratt and family, Comox Valley

Question for councillors Dear editor, To clear some of the misconceptions and maybe confusion on the issue of Maple Pool Campsite, I would ask all of the Courtenay councillors this same question: Based on the infor-

mation you have, are you in favour of pursuing the lawsuit against Maple Pool? Simple yes or no is sufficient. I understand governance, in that, if the majority of the council votes one way, the rest of the

Where’s kindness? Dear editor, I think Mother Teresa and/or the Chinese goddess of mercy and compassion would be proud of Jin Lin’s efforts to care for the residents of Maple Pool. I believe a stroke of a pen and human kindness could relieve the stress of the Lins and the residents of Maple Pool who have nowhere else to go. Shame on Courtenay administration for suing the Lins and for the mental distress this has caused. Donna Lemay, Lethbridge, Alta.

council must follow on decisions. However, when I was on the Board of Education, we were allowed to divulge “how” we voted in camera, or opinions on a subject, however we weren’t allowed to discuss the details of a particular situation. I trust you would all feel comfortable in making your vote known without divulging the legalities of this situation. Looking forward to your prompt response. Jean Rowe, Comox Valley Editor’s note: Jean Rowe ran for Courtenay councillor last November.

Dear editor, A recent letter to the editor (Record, Aug. 16) by the president of the Coal Watch Comox Valley Society takes issue with the environmental assessment process for the proposed Raven Coal project. It questions the information requirements that have been imposed on the proponent, but fails to note some important points with respect to the regulatory process in B.C. and Canada. The decision as to what information is required from a proponent is made by environmental assessment experts within the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Office and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency. These requirements are set only after extensive consultation with the public, stakeholders, local governments, government agencies and First Nations. In the case of the Raven Coal project, the information requirements were the subject of particularly extensive input. Draft requirements were posted on the Internet and comments were sought from all interested parties. Several open houses were held. The proponent was required to track and consider each and every issue raised and the responses were reviewed by environmental assessment officials before the requirements were finalized. Environmental assessment officials provided the public and interested parties with an unprecedented opportunity to comment not only on the draft information requirements, but also on the proponent’s response to earlier comments from interested parties. Overall, it took nearly three years from the time the project entered the environmental assessment process for the application information requirements to be determined. Now the proponent must assemble the required information and studies and submit its application. Interested parties may continue to participate in the process

and to comment on the application once filed. The environmental assessment process is one of the most open, inclusive and transparent processes available and it should be respected and not prejudged. Coal mining is a rich part of the history of Vancouver Island, and coal continues to be mined on Vancouver Island successfully and safely to this day. Mining is, overall, one of British Columbia’s most important industries. It employs thousands of people in communities throughout the province, with salaries averaging well above the provincial average. Mining contributes hundreds of millions of dollars to government revenues that can be used to fund important programs like health and education. Angela Waterman Editor’s note: Angela Waterman is vice-president, environment and technical affairs for the Mining Association of British Columbia.

TODAY, FOR THE first time, we noticed not just a slight chill in the air, but an aroma, a smell if you will, of fall. The oppressive heat of summer is not there any more, temps are cooler, the breeze a bit cooler too, but it is the aroma. Garden veggies are ‘done.’ Cleaning up the garden, putting stuff into compost is another issue. Bird feeders need cleaning, as does the bird bath. Thoughts are turning to, ‘Where are the gloves, the sweaters, jackets?” Leave that thermostat alone. Dress in layers. Even the lead stories in our local papers are hinting at this change of seasons. Anyone else out there having the same experience? TO THE FAMILY at the corner of Waddington and Ninth Street East in Courtenay, you are a welcome addition to our friendly neighbourhood. But what is it with that noisy little dog? It barks non-stop for hours and hours. This has been going on for too long and your neighbours are getting totally fed up. Of all the neighbourhood dogs, yours is the only one allowed such constant barking. Please take your dog to training. In the meantime, keep your dog inside with the windows closed.

I WOULD LIKE to acknowledge the hard work of Jen Shapka, a wonderful woman and car seat technician volunteer who has worked tirelessly to make the Comox Valley and Vancouver Island safer for families. Jen moved to the Valley just over a year ago and she has performed hundreds of child car seat checks and trained numerous technicians around the Island. It is noteworthy that fewer than a handful of drivers had installed the seats correctly; imagine the tragedy that could result during a crash from improper seat installation or buckling in of a child? If you have children’s car or booster seats and haven’t already had a check, please contact Jen at cvcarseattechs@gmail. com. HUGE APPRECIATION TO Bill and his staff at Comox Valley Dodge’s repair shop. Previously, they have done a fabulous repair to our car after a couple of fender-benders. Recently, a very poor driver of a scooter left his paint on our front bumper. Bill used solvent and it’s just like new again. He said, “No charge; just keep coming back.” Hopefully, other folks will read this and us his services when they need them.

Why do we persist in studying projects to death? VICTORIA — NDP leader Adrian Dix has announced that one of his first acts as premier would be to withdraw B.C. from the joint review of the Enbridge pipeline proposal from Alberta to Kitimat. The two-year federal-led review will be mostly done by next May, but Dix proposes to start a new provincial assessment to examine the B.C. portion. He doesn’t know how much it would cost, and under questioning he all but admitted the intention is to study the pipeline to death. Fresh from a summer tour of the pipeline route to reaffirm solidarity with its opponents, Dix is hardly in a position to consider anything but maximum resistance. As Premier Christy Clark did in her showdown with Alberta over benefits, Dix hinted that provincial permits for river and wildlife crossings would be made as expensive as possible, if not refused. The same fate awaits the Kinder Morgan plan to twin the existing Trans-Mountain oil pipeline to Burnaby. Dix left the impression that he would undo the years of work that have gone into bringing some rational sense to environmental approvals that can be, and have been, dragged out for years. The B.C. hearings would provide another platform for opponents, and more complaints to justify refusal at the

provincial level, to go along with court cases and direct-action protests. Speaking of which, the frontal assault by agitators at the federal Enbridge hearings has mostly petered out. After 4,000-odd people were signed up to speak, most didn’t bother, and some hearings were cancelled. Apparently slacktivists such as “Jonathan L. Seagull” and “Cave Man” didn’t make it out of their Vancouver basement suites to tell the panel oil is bad. Professional environmentalists are now wringing their hands over Ottawa’s decision to leave smaller-scale reviews to the province. This means, for example, that there won’t be a duplicate federal review of the urgently needed refit of the John Hart Dam on the Campbell River. One reader suggested that environmental pioneer Roderick HaigBrown is still spinning in his grave over the damming of this legendary salmon river. Perhaps, but that was in 1947. Does it make sense today to lard pointless bureaucracy

POLITICS

TOM

FLETCHER onto a reconstruction that replaces wooden pipes and provides earthquake protection, without expanding river impact? NDP environment critic Rob Fleming hammered away at

the B.C. Liberals about this in the spring, reminding them that Auditor General John Doyle had exposed a lack of resources in the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office, even before Ottawa’s changes. Fleming makes it sound like a huge new burden has been dumped on B.C. False. Provincial assessment already must

be done with the participation of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Transport Canada, the provincial ministries of natural resources and energy and mines, and of course aboriginal communities. This is why it’s so long and expensive. And don’t be fooled into believing that a federal review would go out and count the tadpoles and caribou again. It’s only the desk

jobs that have proliferated. There weren’t just two levels of duplicate review, but three. Earlier in their mandate, the B.C. Liberals exempted major projects such as mines and energy generation from local government control, citing the “provincial interest” similar to the federal authority over projects that cross provincial borders. I agree with the

NDP that B.C. environmental assessment needs more resources, in particular to do the follow-up on approved projects, as called for by the auditor general. Forest management needs more money, too. All the more reason not to waste resources on political gestures. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com.
