ON FIRE

“Nasty, annoying, aggressive” European fire ants make their way to an Oak Bay neighbourhood and set up camp. One B.C. scientist is mapping their progression and trying to stop the spread of the invasive species.

“They’re nasty, biting, little invasives.” - Ben van Drimmelen

European fire ants invade Oak Bay Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Within seconds Ben van Drimmelen’s hand is swarming with European fire ants. All it took was one solid thump over where he knew there was a nest – an easy process since he pounded his entire front yard earlier and found five nests in a onemetre section. “The odd behaviour is the strong bite and the swarming action,” the Oak Bay man said, ants crawling across his calloused hand. “They’re nasty, biting, little invasives.” He’s been trying to get rid of them since discovering the pests living alongside the harmless black ants in his yard in the mid-1990s. “I didn’t know they were nonnative,” he said. “I knew they were annoying.” This summer, van Drimmelen learned exactly how invasive the pests are after reading media coverage of a European fire ant problem on the Lower Mainland that cited leading B.C. expert Robert Higgins. Higgins hopes to spread that knowledge given new funding from the province and the growing concern over the tiny, feisty pests. “One of the many challenges with this new invasive is that few people work with ants and are able to identify them. Right now I am the only person in the province, but a workshop is in the planning stages to train more people,” the entomologist explained. “We’re trying to provide some more information to municipalities so they can stickhandle this.” A little while later, van Drimmelen simply places his hand on the lawn, with similar swarming affect – no thump necessary. Although only four millimetres long, the ants are known to swarm and sting without provocation, putting the kibosh on bocce, relaxing on the grass and backyard parties, said van Drimmelen’s neighbour Rhea Cavelti. “Once the kids are bitten, After Bite doesn’t work. … The (welts) get massive,” Cavelti said. Higgins explained that the European fire ants became a noted pest about 15 years ago. “(The species is) forming much denser colonies in areas that it’s

moving into. And it’s becoming much more aggressive,” he said. “This ant doesn’t behave this way in Europe. It doesn’t form colonies anywhere near as densely as in North America. … They seem to understand they are dominating the area and can afford to be aggressive.” Along with Greater Victoria, the thin, red ants have been found around Chilliwack, North Vancouver and Burnaby. “It is to the best of our knowledge localized right now to perhaps half a dozen residences (in Greater Victoria),” Higgins said. “The province has approved funding to map their distribution in more detail. … By the end of summer we hope to have a better idea of where it is, at least where it’s established.” A retired biologist, van Drimmelen looks forward to Higgins’ mapping the species and discovering a safe way to combat them. Traditional antkilling methods have yet to work. “I’m hoping there’s a way to control these ants without killing the other nice ants,” van Dimmelen said. So far Higgins finds boric acid at a very specific concentration does the trick and is guiding residents accordingly. “We’re going to be setting up a process, so we can provide some information to municipalities if they become the first contact for these issues,” Higgins said. They hope to have students mapping and trapping in the neighbourhood this week. Learn more about the species, or contact Higgins through Thompson Rivers University at www.tru.ca/faculty/rhiggins.

Rising temper with temperature The European fire ant is not a morning creature. In the cold and damp it’s sluggish but as the temperature heats up, say to 20 degrees, it begins to move faster. “It only tends to sting when you get it under clothing and press against it,” said entomologist Rob Higgins. When the weather hits 25 degrees, this invasive fire ant will “sting without the necessity of clothing,” he added. “They show the worst behaviour on warm humid muggy evenings.” cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

If you’re digging up plants and sending them to a friend or a neighbour, immerse the roots in water for an hour to kill any potential of transporting a queen. “We definitely want to contain this. … It’s going to be a fight to knock it back.”

Up for grabs Resignation of Victoria MP Denise Savoie opens the door of speculation on who might replace her Daniel Palmer News staff

As federal political parties adjust to the surprise of Victoria MP Denise Savoie’s resignation last week, the focus is turning to potential candidates and hot-button issues for the likely fall byelection. Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin is rumoured to be considering a run at the NDP nomination, an opportunity that would see him take leave of city hall during the climax of the Johnson Street Bridge project. “He’s made it quite clear among friends that he’s got aspirations for higher office,” said Mat Wright, former communications director for 2011 Liberal candidate and former Oak Bay mayor Christopher Causton. “I think he’s going to look at this as an opportunity he can’t miss.” Fortin’s office refused comment on his potential candidacy. Former Conservative candidate Patrick Hunt said he will be making a decision next week on his candidacy. “I certainly haven’t ruled it out,” he said. “We’ll come with a game plan to win this time.” As a rule, byelections do not favour the governing party and local candidates tend to be magnified more than in a general election, said University of Victoria political scientist Norman Ruff. “All four parties have something to prove,” he said. “The NDP will want to retain (the seat) as continuing evidence of (Tom) Mulcair’s leadership appeal while the Liberals are hungry to regain the seat as a sign of some party revival.” The Conservatives are able to run a strong campaign, Ruff added, while the Greens will be hoping for some “contagion” from Elizabeth May’s success in Saanich-Gulf Islands to become the first Green MP in 2011. A byelection also provides more of an opportunity to capitalize on local issues than in a general election, said former Liberal MP

Denise Savoie

David Anderson, who held the Victoria seat from 1993 to 2006. While major national issues like the Enbridge pipeline project, environmental assessment cuts and a reduction in fisheries officers are going to weigh on voters’ choices, local concerns like the Capital Regional District’s secondary sewage treatment project – which Anderson opposes – could prove to be paramount to electoral success, he said.

“This could be the sleeper that wins either the Liberals or the Greens the election,” Anderson said. “But it’s for the NDP to lose. They are the favourites.” May said the Greens do advocate for regional sewage treatment, but that the proposed project – of which one-third will be funded by federal dollars – is not the right fit. “The current system isn’t sustainable forever, but it’s certainly

not an urgent crisis where we jump to the wrong system,” May said. “Municipally, provincially and federally, there are a lot of us who don’t think the solution that’s being proposed right now is the right one.” The byelection provides the first democratic outlet for residents of Victoria, Oak Bay and a large portion of Saanich to voice their support or rejection of the controversial $782-million sewage treatment project, which will increase annual municipal taxes by hundreds of dollars per household. “(Prime Minister) Stephen Harper’s leadership style will inevitably be the larger backdrop (in the byelection),” Ruff said. Nathan Rotman, the NDP’s national direc-

tor, called Savoie’s resignation disappointing and said the candidate nomination process will likely open after the Labour Day weekend. “Certainly, we expect this to be a popular nomination race,” Rotman said, adding the federal government will likely call Victoria’s byelection this fall in conjunction with several others in Calgary Centre, Durham, Ont. and possibly Etobicoke, Ont. “I would speculate it will be a late October call for a late November election date,” Rotman said. The federal government has 180 days to call a byelection when a seat becomes vacant. If Victoria is not called until February, the byelection will occur in the

middle of the provincial 2013 election campaign, an undesirable scenario for both levels of government. Last Thursday, Savoie announced she would step down on Aug. 31 for unspecified health reasons. She served as Victoria MP for three terms since 2006, winning an impressive 50 per cent of the vote in the 2011 election. Savoie’s challengers in the last federal election were Conservative Patrick Hunt, Jared Giesbrecht for the Greens and Christopher Causton, Liberal candidate and former Oak Bay mayor. Causton could not be reached for comment on his interest in running for the Liberal seat this fall. dpalmer@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Savoie earned our respect Most Victorians put politics aside upon hearing of Victoria NDP MP Denise Savoie’s decision to step away from her position. Citing a “health warning” from her physician, Savoie said last week she could no longer “represent her constituents to the standard they have come to expect.” Reactions ranged from shock to sadness, and the consensus formed around the region was that Savoie leaves big shoes to fill. With a career in politics running from her election as a Victoria councillor in 1999 to her rise as NDP MP in 2006 – a seat she held onto during two subsequent elections – Savoie earned a reputation as a steadfast representative. Despite political barriers, Savoie helped bring millions of federal dollars to the region for the Johnson Street bridge and sewage treatment projects. She previously spearheaded many regional environmental and humanitarian projects, including the development of the Galloping Goose Trail and the regional housing trust. That type of commitment and devotion to Greater Victoria citizens will be difficult to replace. Savoie’s “city council-style” politics will be missed. Her passion for bringing local concerns to federal ears made her stand out among her cohorts in the chamber. In stepping down from her post at the end of this week, she will leave a legacy of championing crossparty co-operation and initiatives that helped lead the government toward integrating provincial and municipal policymaking. Although Savoie would not speculate on her replacement, she is looking forward to a “pretty exciting” race for her seat. Among the names of potential byelection candidates being tossed about in local pubs are Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin for the NDP, as well as 2011 federal election candidates Patrick Hunt of the Conservatives, former Oak Bay Mayor Christopher Causton for the Liberals and former Green Party candidate Jared Giesbrecht. Beyond that, anyone who wants the job will have to answer to the people of Victoria and be able to speak clearly for them in Ottawa in order to earn the respect Savoie gained during her tenure in politics.

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. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Cost out of whack Re: Henderson expansion plan revealed (News Aug. 22).

A good education for your child includes good schools, good teachers and good vision. Your child’s eyes are constantly in use in the classroom and at play. When his or her vision is not functioning properly, learning and participation in recreational activities will suffer. The following are the basic vision skills used at school: Near vision: The ability to see clearly and comfortably at 10-13 inches. Distance vision: the ability to see clearly and comfortably at arm’s reach and beyond. Binocular coordination: The ability to use both eyes together. Eye movement skills: The ability to aim the eyes accurately, move them smoothly across a page and shift them quickly and accurately from one object to another. Focusing skills: The ability to keep both eyes accurately focused at the proper distance to see clearly and to change focus quickly. Peripheral awareness: The ability to be aware of things located to the side while looking straight ahead. Eye/hand coordination: The ability to use the eyes and hands together. Disruption to any one of the above skills will cause your child’s eyes to work harder. This can lead to headaches, fatigue and other eyestrain related problems. Symptoms include: losing their place while reading; avoiding close work; holding reading material closer than normal; tending to rub their eyes often; complaining of headaches; turning or tilting head and appearing to use one eye only; making frequent transpositions of letters or words when reading or writing; omitting small words when reading; consistently performing below the level of their peer group. Since vision changes can occur without anyone noticing, children should visit the Optometrist at least every two years. More frequent visits may be necessary if specific problems or risk factors exist. The doctor can prescribe treatment if needed. Remember, a school screening is not a substitute for a thorough eye examination.

Students to push province on B.C. Transit changes Daniel Palmer News staff

Greater Victoria students are throwing their support behind the region’s municipalities who want greater control over BC Transit. Both the University of Victoria and Camosun College student societies are urging transportation minister Blair Lekstrom to give the Capital Regional District control of transportation planning. “The biggest issue facing students in the transit system is students being left behind on buses both on and off campus,” said Lucia Orser, UVSS director of external relations. Lekstrom appointed a review panel in March after complaints that the provincially appointed BC Transit board was making costly changes without consulting the communities, whose fares and property taxes cover more than half the cost of transit service. He promised to respond to the recommendations of the panel during the Union of B.C. Municipalities conference in September. “The CRD has the ability to raise revenues other than from property taxes and fares, which

Students are promoting local control of transit planning. is the (revenue) system BC Transit operates on,” said Madeline Keller-MacLeod, Camosun’s student society spokeswoman. Bus pass-ups are still commonplace for more than 30,000 UVic and Camosun students that commute each day to and from campus, Keller-MacLeod said. “It’s not just during peak hours, it’s throughout the day as well,” she added. Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard has publicly stated the pooling of transportation budgets for integrated planning is the eventual goal of the CRD, a process that could take two years to complete. “If the province gives the CRD transit, that’s the first step,”

Leonard said. Orser said environmental factors also weigh heavily on the student unions’ decision to support CRD control of transit planning. “Transportation accounts for the largest share of greenhouse gases emitted in the Capital Region,” she said. “If we are serious about transitioning off fossil fuels, we need to create local, livable communities that promote active transportation options such as walking, cycling and public transit.” Keller-MacLeod said both student unions have requested a meeting with Lekstrom to express their support. dpalmer@vicnews.com

She won re-election in 2008 and 2011. “I got into politics to help make a better world for my children and grandchildren.

It's hard to do,” Fortin said. Like Fortin, fellow NDP MP Randall Garrison (Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca) worked with Savoie during their days as civic politicians. “It’s a great loss to Victoria. She was a dedicated pubic servant as a city councillor and MP,” he said. “It’s a very hard decision to make, but I don’t think she’ll regret taking care of her health. It’s the right thing to do.” Garrison noted Savoie’s role as deputy speaker was perhaps not appreciated in Victoria, but earned the MP respect in Ottawa. “Denise was a stickler for maintaining proper decorum. She was feared by many speakers when she was chair,” he said. “She was dedicated to improving the tone in the House of Commons.”

For those who didn’t get their outdoor iambic fill this summer, another Shakespeare play is popping up along Dallas Road. Shakespeare by the Sea is staging A Midsummer Night’s Dream nightly at 7 p.m. until Sept. 2 at Holland Point Park, in a relaxed and intimate setting for 100 guests

well as 13 to 19, to teach the essentials of Shakespearean acting. Students will then appear onstage as fairies and elves in the Sept. 1 and 2 performances. The 20-actor playbill is made up of local professional and community actors, including UVic acting students, who have been rehearsing for the past two and a half months. Light, who has been

involved in more than 80 plays in his career, said the success of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will see it return next year, along with a tragedy like Macbeth. “This is a very educated and artistic city. We know the audience is there and they want to see our show,” he said. Call 250-213-8088 or go to vicshakesea.ca for more information. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Teenage

agenda A look inside Victoria Royals rookie camp Travis Paterson News staff

Wearing baby blue socks, Brandon Fushimi stood out among the rest during Team Campos’ debut on the first day of Victoria Royals rookie camp last week. Fushimi, 16, is a return invite from last year’s camp. It wasn’t the socks that got him noticed, but it was easy to spot the right winger as he and centreman Tyler Soy, the Royals top draft pick in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft, found early chemistry. The duo showed exemplary poise and skill as the banged home three goals in the second half of their first game, each off a passing play with each other. Along with speedy defenceman Jack Walker, they led the team to first place at the Rookie Camp, winning the Marty the Marmot Cup. Tracking 148 players on eight teams may seem daunting for head coach Dave Lowry. The new boss had plenty of help in assess-

ing the promising talent of last week’s rookie camp. But there’s no denying the magnitude of the four-day tournament which, for many players and families who made the trek to Victoria, was an introduction to the Western Hockey League. For regular fans who showed up to watch, it can be little more than a messy game of awkward 15- and 16-year-old teenage boys spinning out of control in an effort trying to impress the Royals brass. Players are adjusting to growth spurts and their play can vary from spastic and awful to slick and impressive on the same shift. “And that’s just it,” said Royals general manager Cam Hope, who was previously with the New York Rangers. “At an NHL rookie camp guys come in with a lot of energy but they’re fully grown and well aware of themselves – their skills are developed.” With 15-year-olds and even 16-year-olds, he said, there is a graceful allowance of error built into each player’s assessment. It’s more about what they show in terms of skill and potential. Intangibles are noted while mistakes,

Don Denton/News staff

Brandon Fushimi, No. 16, of Team Campos steps onto the ice to face and Team Grant during the second day of Victoria Royals rookie camp on Friday. for the most part, are not. But with 148 players, including two dozen or so top-end bantam draft picks swallowing up the bulk of the attention, players need to do something to stand out. And that’s why Lowry relies heavily on help from the entire front office of assistant coaches Enio Sacilotto, Ben Cooper and Geoff Grimwood, goalie coach Brady Robinson, director of player personnel Grant Armstrong, and head scout Garry Pochipinski. Throw in a dozen more community coaches brought in by Grimwood to oversee all eight teams, allowing Lowry and company to hold a birds-eye view from the press box. Not to mention the team has

a whole whack of scouts, 18 in all. They aren’t all here, but they have a vested interest, as they’re the ones responsible for inviting the players in the first place. Only 12 to 24 players actually moved from rookie camp to main camp this week, many of them draftees, only a few of which will actually play with the Royals this year. “We have a pretty good idea who will get first crack at gametime this year,” Lowry said. The most important factor for the 16-year-olds is improving their stock on the team’s depth chart. For the non-drafted 15-year-olds, it’s getting that all-important invite back for 2013.

“With rookie camp we can’t talk much with every player,” Lowry said, “but we can try to answer any questions they have.” So who organizes the camp, its 148 wide-eyed players and 300 equally wide-eyed parents? “It’s probably the busiest week of the year for hockey operations and communications guys Corey St. Laurent and Jeff Harris,” Hope said. Upwards of 100 players played in main camp beginning on Monday (Aug. 27), whittled down to two teams for Wednesday night’s National Bank Intersquad Game, 7 p.m. at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. sports@vicnews.com

Royals unite Walker brothers Top U.S.A. prospect joins Royals Travis Paterson News staff

The Victoria Royals have added a second Walker to the roster. Jack Walker, 16, has joined elder brother Ben, 19, in pursuit of a career in the Western Hockey League. Though Ben was the first to join the team when he made his debut part-way through last season, it was Jack who initially caught the Royals’ attention. In January, Jack represented his country at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Austria and last month he played for Team U.S.A. at the Under-17 Five Nations tournament in the Czech Republic, where he helped his team win gold. “(The Royals) contacted me first,” Jack said on Thursday.

“My mom wasn’t all that fired up about giving a college scholarship.” – Jack Walker When you’re from Edina, Minn., the NCAA is kind of a big deal. Giving up your chance to play in Div. 1 hockey is a decision the whole community notices. “It took my brother going to the WHL to change things, and convince my family that this is the right path for me. I have an agent who had a couple of NCAA schools interested in me, and my mom wasn’t all that fired up about giving up a college scholarship.” By signing to the Royals, Jack, like Ben, has waved his NCAA eligibility, even though Jack has yet to make the team. The minor stipend of less than $100 per

week gives him professional status in the NCAA’s eyes. Right from the start, Walker is being compared to fellow 16-year-old Joe Hicketts, the Royals top draft pick from the 2011 WHL bantam draft. “Getting Jack is like having two first round draft picks from 2011,” said general manager Cam Hope. With the likes of Hicketts and sizeable defencemen Keegan Kanzig, 17, and Chaz Reddekopp, 15, the Royals are stocked with blue chip prospects on defence for the next few years, Hope said. Both Jack Walker and Hicketts are slightly on the smaller side but have explosive speed and are offensively gifted, projected as puck-moving, powerplay quarterbacks. Hicketts may hold a slight edge in making the team this year, while Jack might have to wait another year before joining Ben as a WHLer. sports@vicnews.com
