Legend on ice Joe Iannarelli reflects on rubbing shoulders with Howe and Sawchuk and his time building up winter recreation programs in Esquimalt Daniel Palmer News staff

J

oe Iannarelli has been around nearly as long as the town where he made a name for himself. But the former Esquimalt Sports Centre manager looks and acts two decades younger than his 90 years, gingerly walking alongside his second home, now known as the Archie Browning Sports Centre. “There’s a lot of memories here,” he said. Iannarelli will be inducted into the Victoria Sports Hall of Fame on Oct. 27, an honour that recognizes his contributions as a community organizer for Esquimalt and Vancouver Island. The Timmins, Ont., native fell in love with the West Coast after playing a half-season with the old Vancouver Canucks in 1949, part of a four-season stint in minor pro hockey. But it wasn’t until 1961 that Iannarelli found his way back through a job posting in the Toronto Star sports section. “There was an ad for an arena manager job in Esquimalt, B.C. So I said to my brother, ‘I don’t know where the hell it is, but if it’s not near a big city, I’m not going.’” Iannarelli became the first manager of the sports centre – the first multi-purpose facility of its kind on Vancouver Island – and spent 20 years at the helm. His commitment spawned hugely successful hockey, lacrosse and curling leagues, as well as a summer hockey school that grew to 600 annual participants from across Canada. To take advantage of the empty hockey rink during the summer months, Iannarelli created a roller skating night that attracted upwards of 700 patrons each week. “Joe built it into the probably the best community

Joe Iannarelli, tanned and fit at 90, stands beside the hockey rink at Archie Browning Sports Centre, a facility he built up from its beginnings in 1961. He’ll enter the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame this arena in Canada,” said long-time friend and physician Dan Buie. “I’m a hockey guy and I love hockey,” Iannarelli said, recalling the glory days when the sports centre sold out Friday night double-headers featuring teams from the Canadian army, navy, University of Victoria and one commercial franchise. “You couldn’t get a person in or out on a Friday night with Vaseline,” Buie said. “Joe started a commercial hockey league that was the rival of any league in Canada.” During the Second World War, Iannarelli worked as a physical training instructor for the Canadian Forces at various bases between Ontario and Nova Scotia. After the war, he spent four years playing on National Hockey League farm teams, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Detroit Red Wings goalie Terry Sawchuk and others. “When I attended Detroit training camp in 1946, my

bunkmate was a guy named Gordie Howe – he was 18 years old,” Iannarelli said. The two lived in the hockey arena in Omaha, Neb., scraping the ice between periods for $5 a day. They remain good friends. But it’s the many local friendships Iannarelli and wife, Jean, forged over the years that make him most proud. “One of the reasons why I took the job was I liked the people that were interviewing me. I was impressed with them and the community,” he said. On Aug. 18, the Esquimalt community threw Iannarelli a 90th birthday party at the sports centre’s curling rink, a small token of appreciation for a “very classy gentleman,” Buie said. When asked what advice he would impart to his two – soon to be three – great-grandchildren, Iannarelli reflected on the guiding principle of his storied career. “Do what you love,” he said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Housing project blends teamwork and community

City shutters Fringe venue briefly

VICTORIA NEWS -

Fernwood proponents have many hoops to jump through yet Daniel Palmer News staff

A micro-neighbourhood within a neighbourhood – the first housing project of its kind in Victoria – is inching closer to receiving city approval. The Fernwood Urban Village, identified as a ‘cohousing’ project, is the concept of four property owners on Grant Street who want to develop shared spaces with a focus on community engagement. They have been working with the city for nearly three years to create their vision. “Our project will be like a little pocket neighbourhood,” said Bill McKechnie, one of the four and a Fernwood Community Association director. “I describe it as a group of like-minded owners who are pooling

our money and building our houses in a way that surrounds the central corridor.” City staff recommended rejection of the project at Monday’s planning and land use committee meeting, saying it doesn’t conform to current municipal guidelines. “One of the key reasons staff recommended against it … is they said it doesn’t have a very good relationship with the street,” said Coun. Lisa Helps. But the city, she added, should be doing more to encourage alternative housing ideas. “It’s the people’s relationship on that street that are making this happen in the first place,” she said. “I think it’s unprecedented in the City of Victoria where four property owners have

Bill McKechnie, partner in a ‘cohousing’ project for the neighbourhood and a director with the Fernwood Community Association, relaxes at the proposed site of the Fernwood Urban Village at North Park and Chambers streets. pooled their property to come up with something and build it together.” To move forward, the project must pass through several stages of approval, including the creation of a master development agreement for the site, consultation with neighbours on Grant Street and further clarification on a proposed car-share program. Council would have the final say. Cohousing differs from

co-op housing in that property owners may still buy and sell individual units, rather than leasing them from a provincially legislated co-op organization. The cohousing model emphasizes shared meals and fosters community activities, McKechnie said. “The uniqueness of it is that we are trying to create a sustainable community by growing a lot of our own food.”

He said the plan also calls for a common dining room and kitchen – the suites would be self-contained, however, with a small kitchen in each. “In cohousing communities, you tend to eat together fairly often, and it’s part of bringing the community together.” The plans also call for green roofs, several food gardens and a bike/kayak storage area. dpalmer@vicnews.com

End pricey deal for retired legislative clerk, NDP says Tom Fletcher Black Press

NDP MLAs used the first public meeting of the legislative management committee to call for former clerk of the house George MacMinn to be removed from his $240,000-ayear consulting job. NDP house leader John Horgan called for the second year of MacMinn’s consulting contract to be

terminated, and asked if taxpayers are paying him for his car, club memberships or pension in addition to extending his salary. MacMinn stepped down last year after 54 years as a legislative clerk, the longest term in Commonwealth history. He served as chief clerk from 1993 until last year, when he agreed to make way for his longtime assistant Craig James. Horgan said the succession took

place without consulting the official opposition, and was “orchestrated” by MacMinn to include the consulting arrangement that extended his salary and benefits for two years. He said committee members don’t know what MacMinn is supposed to do as a consultant, but public accounts show he was paid $250,000 plus $22,000 in travel expenses last year. B.C. Liberal members of the com-

mittee agreed Tuesday to review MacMinn’s position, once a report is prepared on his duties. James warned that the two-year term is legally binding, and if it was terminated it could increase the cost to taxpayers. The Liberal majority voted to approve James’ appointment and the consulting role for MacMinn last year, with NDP MLAs opposed. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

A hitch in seating arrangements at the Metro Studio cancelled three Tuesday night shows at the Fringe Festival. The City of Victoria posted a no occupancy order on the venue late in the afternoon, citing concerns that seating changes were made without plans first being submitted to the city. “It was at the end of the day so we weren’t able to talk with the city until (Wednesday),” said Heather Lindsay, general manager of Intrepid Theatre, which leases the venue. “We had all the proper paperwork, we just needed to get it in. We’re learning to cross our T’s properly.” Metro is the site of numerous Fringe Festival performances this week, and those shows will go on, with seating reverting to its previous format. “We’re losing about three rows of seats,” Lindsay said, noting that the existing 125 seats are on par with other Fringe venues. The festival runs through Sept. 2. Visit victoriafringe. com for details. cvanreeuwyk@ oakbaynews.com

Deer committee in final stretch Recommendations to CRD board next week Brittany Lee News staff

The Capital Regional District’s deer management advisory committee is one step closer to submitting its final report to the CRD board. The 10-member citizen’s advisory group is expecting to have final recommendations to the CRD Planning, Transportation and Protective services Committee’s Sept. 5 meeting. It then goes to the CRD board. The group has been meeting regularly since the beginning of May. A report to the CRD was initially expected in July, but the board decided to continue meetings in order to extend discussions about possible strategies. “Because we have so many different landscapes (agricultural, rural, and urban) fairly close to each other within the area covered by the CRD, the (advisory group) has had to address all the management options available from the perspective of each landscape’s residents,” committee chair Jocelyn Skrlac told the News in an email. The committee has studied numerous known practices to find safe and effective ways to deal with deer on private property, she said, noting

“there is no one solution to fit all CRD landscapes.” Among the recommendations considered have been capturing and relocating deer, using repellants, better educating the public, undertaking a controlled public hunt or professional sharpshooting for a cull, feeding deer immunocontraceptives, capturing and euthanizing the animals, installing fencing, and taking no action. Actions taken could involve any combination of solutions. Members of the public have been able to provide their input on each management option through the CRD website since early July. The group’s final report will include short-term, medium-term, and longterm suggestions, with strategies that could be implemented almost immediately, and others within five to 10 years. “The efficacy and sustainability of control methods will also have to be monitored, as the (group’s) recommendations for today’s (regional deer management strategy) may change over time,” Skrlac said.

RAISING A ROOF lifting a community First Met building campaign gains traction Daniel Palmer News staff

Rev. Allan Saunders is grateful for the outpouring of donations to replace the aging roof at First Metropolitan United Church, but he’s more excited about what will happen below once it’s complete. Members of the 97-year-old church, located at 932 Balmoral Rd., have raised 60 per cent of the $540,000 needed to pay for the metal shingle roof through their Raise the Roof campaign. The physical investment is expected to last at least 50 years. “It will be much more environmentally friendly, but I think it’s what happens under the roof that’s key,” said Saunders, referencing upcoming events such as a play on restorative justice, a celebration of Ghandi’s birthday and a presentation by environmentalist Guy Dauncey. “A key part of our mandate is to be engaged in the community and be

engaged with the community,” Saunders said. The six-week project will be completed by Labour Day. Heritage fund contributions of $52,000 and $15,000 have come from the City of Victoria and the province, respectively. Local organizations such as Pacific Opera Victoria, Amica House and Market on Yates have also contributed. The church hosted Lt.-Gov. Steven Point earlier this year, and Mayor Dean Fortin will speak on Sept. 30 at 11 a.m. on his vision for Victoria. Fortin acknowledged the church’s shared 150th birthday with the city by inviting Saunders to say an interfaith prayer at anniversary celebrations Aug. 2 in Centennial Square. “We’re grateful for the generations who paid it forward for us, and now we’re going to do a number of things that have a vision for the future,” Saunders said. See above for upcoming events. dpalmer@vicnews.com

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 the common pathways that 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 vulnerable. If we can learn more about those transitions and who’s most vulnerable, we can presumably plan better care and services in (future).� Diane Finegood, president-CEO of the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, spoke from experience, having witnessed a family member’s move to long-term care. “I know we really need to understand those transitions better and think about how to ease them and make them less inconvenient,� she said. “If we’re going to tackle and overcome the challenges we face with the changing demographic of our culture, the rising costs associated with new technologies and the availability of resources, we need research and we need to put that research into practice.� nnorth@saanichnews.com

Ethiopian leader mourned in Victoria Don Descoteau News staff

Victoria’s Ethiopian community is celebrating the life and mourning the death of a man seen as an early champion for that African country’s basic human rights, at a gathering on Sunday. Prime Minister Ato Meles Zanawi, who battled the country’s communist regime nearly 20 years before being named Ethiopian leader in 1991, died at 57 earlier this month. “This was the saddest day for Ethiopia,” said Selam Ayele, a Victoria resident and co-organizer of the Sept. 2 event. While she has been away from her native country for 13 years, she Don Denton/News staff feels strongly about Selam Ayele, standing in Zanawi’s effect on front of an Ethiopian flag, the health and welholds up a photograph of fare of her people. the late Ethiopian Prime “In 21 years he Minister Meles Zenawi. never took a vacation,” Ayele said. “He was the change that Ethiopia needed.” His dreams, she said, were to see everyone fed three times a day and have ample clothing, “the basic things that we’ve been missing for so long.” Mekonnen Tedla, who has lived in Victoria 17 years after emigrating to Canada from Ethiopia in 1990, called Zanawi’s death “a terrible loss for the country.” “He was a visionary for all of Africa,” said Tedla, most of whose immediate family members remain

in his native land. “Some people forget about poverty when they move here, but some of us, we feel the sorrow for our country at this time.” Such changes as educational opportunities for residents – Ethiopia went from having two universities when Tedla left to 37 now – and the freedom to travel in and out of the country came about under Zanawi’s leadership, Tedla said. While Zanawi was seen as a positive influence on economic development – Ethiopia enjoys one of the fastest growing non-oil dependent economies in Africa – critics said the country’s human rights had begun to suffer under his rule. The Victoria event gets underway at 6 p.m. at the Ukrainian Orthodox Church hall, 1112 Caledonia Ave. It is open to everyone. editor@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Holiday reminder of labour unrest For many families and working individuals, Labour Day offers one last chance to extend the summer and enjoy a long weekend. But for a large number of unionized workers in B.C., it signals what could be the start of a fall and winter of discontent. Unsatisfied with a three-per-cent wage hike offer and a stagnant state of negotiations with the province, the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union is staging a one-day walkout next Wednesday (Sept. 5). The strike, which will see essential service levels maintained, doesn’t come out of the blue. Civil servants have been without a contract since March 31 and bargaining between the two sides has stalled. The timing of this move by one of the province’s largest unions is rather ironic. Unions fought for workers’ rights for years, achieving gains in safety, working hours, job security and not least, wages. Now, as much of B.C. is taking a welldeserved day off on a holiday originating from union victories on the issues of work hours and living wages, the BCGEU and other unions are gearing up for more fights, with wages, benefits and job security still at issue. More than 1,300 support staff at the University of Victoria, without a contract since March 2010, are considering job action options for next week as students return to class. Job security is at issue – CUPE fears the province’s call for universities to find major cost savings could see major job losses – but holding the line on wages to save jobs is not on the table. And for much of this year, the 30,000-strong B.C. Nurses’ Union has stated that better patient care and adequate staffing levels – requiring more hires and more government dollars – are top priorities in contract negotiations with the province. We can be grateful to workers of old for our September holiday and the conditions around which we earn our living. But with the province still struggling to right itself on shaky economic ground, the unions of today need to remember they can’t expect to keep gaining while others continue to struggle.

And sometimes, although we may not want to consider it, we might fall on hard times ourselves. As a community, we rely on the generosity and consideration of one another. Whether it’s fundraising to help one of our own battle an illness, donating clothes or toys to a neighbour who could put them to better use, or simply dropping by a few cans of food to the food bank – we all benefit from giving back to the communities we live in. We just have to remember and take the time to do it. Devon MacKenzie is a reporter with the Peninsula News Review. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

VICTORIA NEWS - Friday, August 31, 2012

LETTERS Sewage plant proposal offered There is absolutely no requirement for a land-based sewage treatment plant on the South Island, but, if this proposed insanity must prevail and a billion dollars squandered for no purpose, I offer the following proposal. We live in an earthquake zone. It is not logical to bury 45 kilometres of pipe underground to a dump that will reach its maximum capacity in 2035. Instead, build the sludge collection facility at McLoughlin Point complete with a docking facility for two large barges. Build a treatment plant in the

Albert Head area complete with a protected docking facility for one barge. The barges would act as holding tanks with the sludge pumped directly into the treatment plant. The proposed system has numerous advantages. By reversing the main trunk from the Western Communities at Parson’s Bridge to a treatment facility at Albert Head, the future cost of enlarging the trunk, as population growth in the Western Communities will require, is eliminated. Properly maintained

barges have the same life expectancy as large pipe. The risk of earthquake damage to the piping infrastructure to Hartland Road is eliminated. Maintenance and operating costs for the pumps required to pump uphill to the dump are eliminated. All the disruption and expense of the piping systems and the new McLoughlin Point outfall will be eliminated. Consider this proposal, before more money is wasted on studies and lawyers fees. D.A.

In this case the fawns are old enough to forage with their mother, but earlier in the year, a fawn may have been left in bushes while the mother gets nourishment for both of them. Beware that conservation officers are not all knowledgeable. There is a wellknown case of a woman in B.C. being attacked by a deer because she laid on top of her lap-mutts to protect them. An unusual case I suppose, but note that Mary-Jo Morin was with a dog. Deer seem to treat dogs as enemies at a very instinctive level, not habituating as they seem to do with humans – likely they are thinking coyote and wolf. Deer are agile and can do damage with their hoofs. Just be thankful there aren’t caribou, elk, or moose here. Deer are in urban areas because the food is better and the predators fewer, though cougar sightings seem to have increased with the deer population (I don’t have statistics, sometimes cougars get lost at night and follow a road or railway track in the wrong direction). Morin should lobby individuals on the Capital Regional District board, who will probably have to make the final decision on how to handle the deer nuisance. She should work to educate voters that deer are animals who have long been food for humans. The B.C. government’s big report on deer found the only effective harm-reduction strategy was a periodic cull, typically giving the meat to food banks, but threw the issue over the wall to locals. People should ensure dogs do not go near deer and look into possible ways to warn

Thieves target merchants buying cigarettes at Costco: police Kyle Slavin News staff

Police in Greater Victoria say a growing black market for cigarettes could be fuelling three recent cigarette thefts linked to merchant purchases at Costco. Boxes of cigarettes worth $10,000 were reported stolen in three separate incidents in Saanich since June. Most recently, on Aug.

17, $6,000 in cigarettes were taken from a locked storage at AM2PM convenience store at Burnside and Harriet roads. “This is the first occasion where it resulted in a break in and theft. The others were thefts from vehicles,” said Staff Sgt. Gary Schenk, with the Regional Crime Unit. Police are concerned about the common denominators in all three incidents:

the cigarettes were all purchased at Costco and stolen within an hour. “The suspects appear to be watching people make purchases (of cigarettes at Costco), then follow them to see if the opportunity presents to make a theft,” Schenk said. In the Aug. 17 incident, an AM2PM employee had just returned to the store with the cigarettes. Within half

an hour the metal lock had been cut and the cartons were gone. In the other two thefts, the cigarettes were stolen from vehicles. Schenk says a fourth incident, from June 28, is being investigated too, after someone made a large purchase of cigarettes from Costco, then called police because he believed he was being followed. “The only reason we draw

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1ST ONLY!

that link (to Costco) is the thefts are occurring in a way that nobody should’ve known there was that volume of cigarettes in that vehicle,” he said. These thefts appear to be identical to a rash of thefts linked to bulk purchases at the Costco in Nanaimo. Some $40,000 worth of cigarettes have been stolen. Given the amount of cigarettes taken, along with “past experience and street-level intelligence,” Schenk says the smokes are likely being sold on the

Street racing blamed for crash Vehicles roaring up Finlayson wind up in tangled mess Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Two Victoria men face charges of driving without consideration after a crash early Saturday morning that police believe was caused by street racing. Just before 7 a.m. on Aug. 25, VicPD received numerous 911 calls reporting two vehicles speeding eastbound on Finlayson Street from Blanshard Street. Moments later, there was a crash at the intersection of Finlayson and Quadra streets. “One of the racers attempted to stop his 1997 Pontiac Sunfire for the red light at Quadra Street, but was unable to. The driver went straight through the light and collided with the other vehicle, sending the second vehicle spinning out of control and into a light standard,” said Const. Mike Russell, VicPD spokesperson. The two drivers were taken to hospital. Witnesses told police they heard a long screech before a collision. Officers measured the skid mark and found it was about 45 metres. Both vehicles – the second was a 2006 Ford Ranger – were heavily damaged and towed from the scene. The drivers, Victoria men

aged 42 and 57, had their vehicles seized for seven days and face charges of driving without reasonable consideration.

Ecstasy, other drugs seized in major bust Four people were arrested last week after undercover police officers in Victoria bought various illegal club drugs during a three-month sting operation.

Police say they purchased ecstasy, ketamine and cocaine from a group allegedly dealing the drugs in city bars and clubs. The sting, dubbed King of Clubs, was initiated after a series of ecstasy-related deaths in B.C. and Alberta in late 2011. David Orchard, Cheryl Weeks, Christopher Cook and Sara Clough are charged with drug offences. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

B.C. Ferries will scrap 32 round-trip sailings between

Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen this fall and winter, making it a little harder to get off the Island. The service reduction on the major route will impact periodic afternoon sailings on Fridays and Sundays, as well as some Saturday morning sailings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We certainly have enough

capacity (to carry all passengers) with the sailings we will sail,â&#x20AC;? said Deborah Marshall, executive director of public affairs. The reduction will only impact some even-hour sailings. Regular odd-hour service will continue. Two other major routes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Horseshoe Bay to Departure

Bay and Tsawwassen to Duke Point â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will see fewer sailings, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is all in an effort to save dollars, which helps keep fares lower,â&#x20AC;? Marshall said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimated the 98 cancelled sailings on the main routes will save B.C. Ferries $1 million this year. editor@vicnews.com

Not just another Monday Movie Monday going strong on grounds of Royal Jubilee Hospital Travis Paterson News staff

Even in its 20th year, Movie Monday continues to slip under the radar. Or does it? For those in the know, it’s a good thing. It means more facetime with coordinator Bruce Saunders, who brings one hell of a conversation, and – if the film being screened is followed by a Q&A with the director – then there’s an even better chance to talk to them too. Plus, the lecture theatre of the Eric Martin Pavilion at Royal Jubilee Hospital is big, but not that big, so regulars can count on getting a seat. In reality, the Monday night screenings draw between 70 to 80 people, a mostly full theatre, while the donations average $1 per head. “We certainly get our share of full houses,” Saunders says. “Spe-

cial screenings, in particular, will fill the place, such as the 19th anniversary party we recently held in June.” Saunders has often wondered if people are wary about coming down to Movie Monday because it’s housed in the Eric Martin, the hospital’s mental health ward. “Originally it was to cater to inpatients but I gradually learned they are unlikely to make it down, as they’re waiting for family”. Instead, Saunders has engaged the public to let them know the event is open to all, and the movies cover the whole spectrum.

Now showing ■ Sept. 10, 6:30 p.m. Into The Wind rediscovers the Terry Fox story, just in time for the annual run happening on Sept. 16. The documentary features Steve Nash and his filmmaker cousin Ezra Holland and goes far beyond what most Canadians know about the icon. ■ Sept. 17, 6:30 p.m., To Make a Farm.

Every day is Monday, yo Saunders has partnered with Yo Video at Foul Bay and Cadboro Bay Roads, where a library of Movie Monday’s films are available to rent, and on the cheap. “That was part of the deal. I want the movies to be seen; I don’t just want them sitting there,” Saunders said. He arranged a Q&A with psychiatrist Dr. Dean Brooks, who was in charge of Oregon State Hospital at the time One Flew Over Cuckoo’s Nest was shot there, and acted in it, too (only later did Saunders moderate the Q&A sessions for Movie Monday). “I’ve always wanted to make this a place for people with mental illness to come and find community. But mental illness is invisible anyways, so there’s no quantifying just how much of an impact we’ve had.” On Friday Aug. 17, for example, Saunders showed The Maze, the story of Canadian artist William Kurelek, whose work is on exhibit at the Art Gallery of Victoria until

Travis Paterson/News staff

Bruce Saunders is now in his 20th year of running Movie Monday out of the lecture theatre in the Eric Martin Pavilion at the Royal Jubilee Hospital. Sept. 3. In attendance were filmmaker Zack Young and Kurelek’s son, Stephen, who addressed the packed audience. William Kurelek died a devout Catholic in 1977 at the age of 50, recovered from a troubled life of mental illness and addiction. “To me, it’s such an incredibly valuable film,” Saunders said. “I really believe we’ll see Kurelek end up on par with Emily Carr one day, not so far away, and we unravelled

the whole story right here.” It’s another example of the many great films which slip through the cracks of mainstream movie watchers. “There’s so many of these Canadian and international movies that we’ve shown. “When I started in 1993, I had no idea I could keep the program together this long. But there’s so much positive feedback.” sports@vicnews.com

For many British Columbians, Labour Day may simply mean the last extended weekend of the summer. It is important to remember it is a day to celebrate working people and the contribution they make to the province and the quality of life we enjoy. The rights that workers have today, such as a 40-hour work week, minimum wage, parental leave and paid holidays, were hard fought for in times when labourers had few benefits, no voice and worked in perilous conditions. Many of the protections and rights that today’s employees have exist because of unions. The origins of this national holiday are rooted Labour Day is celebrated on the first Monday of in the history of the Canadian labour movement every September and this year on Sept. 3 it will be that began in the time of Prime Minister Sir John in a show of solidarity for working people across A. Macdonald. the country and beyond. From a bold stand by a group of Ontario printers in May of 1872 grew the most important legislation to impact workers in the following century. Union pioneers petitioned their employers for a reduction in the number of hours worked - asking that their workweek be reduced to six, nine-hour Labour Day is celebrated each days. year on the first Monday in Forming an organization dubbed the Nine September.

and rejected their demands. At the time it was a crime to be member of a union in Canada yet in a courageous act of defiance, the Toronto Typographical Union went on strike to secure the ninehour workday. A parade was held which drew some 10,000 spectators. The workers went on strike. Many lost their job and were forced to relocate. Their employers brought in replacement workers and used this so called ‘conspiracy’ to have 24 members of the movement arrested and jailed. On June 14, 1872 Macdonald passed the Trade Union Act that legalized union activity, freed the workers and endeared him to the working class. The Toronto printers strike paved the way for unions across North America to demand a 54hour workweek. Canadian trade unionists have ever since celebrated this day that has been set aside to honour ‘those who labour.’ The first Labour Day parade was held in Winnipeg in 1894, and was two miles long. Today approximately 30 per cent of B.C.’s workforce is covered by a collective agreement. As Labour Day has evolved it remains a day of celebration, solidarity, speeches and recreation. This Labour Day, take a moment to reflect on the history and significance of the day.

Man accused of sex assaults A Saanich man is facing six charges relating to sexually assaulting and molesting two teenage girls, one of them over a period of four years. Scott Wesley Shirley is charged with sexually assaulting the first teenage girl sometime between January and June 2011. Two charges indicate Shirley allegedly touched the girl, who was under the age of 16 at the time, for sexual purposes between June 2007 and June 2011. Two of the four charges related to the first victim describe Shirley as being “a person of trust or authority,” or a person who the young person has a dependent relationship with or who is being

exploited. He is also accused of both sexually assaulting and sexually touching a second teenage girl who was under the age of 16, sometime between January and June 2011. A publication ban prohibits revealing any information that could identify the girls. The charges were sworn back on May 31. A preliminary hearing has been set for July 2013 in Victoria provincial court.

Saanich police arrested a 36-year-old man with a long history of petty crimes on suspicion of stealing a gift basket donated for charity. Changing Times Hair Salon in Tillicum Centre had donated a gift basket, worth about $180, for a Cops For Cancer Tour de Rock fundraiser happening at Pearkes Recreation Centre last Friday (Aug. 24). The basket went missing around noon that day.

Police picked up the suspect on Saturday at Hampton Park on an unrelated matter, and an officer recognized the man from video surveillance at Pearkes. The man had most of the stolen hair care products in his possession. He was released on conditions of staying away from Pearkes. Police say the man’s criminal record goes back 20 years. He is due in court on Oct. 10 for theft and possession of stolen property. editor@vicnews.com

The Victoria Foundation & Black Press Working Together – how philanthropy shapes our community

Charities plan for the future 13 new endowment funds established Building on its 76-year history, the Victoria Foundation has boldly invested in the vitality of our region once again. The Foundation has created 13 new endowment funds that will benefit hundreds of clients of Vancouver Island charities. The funds were created with $100,000 in matching funds from the Foundation as part of its new Smart & Caring Community Fund. Each of the organizations is contributing a minimum of $7,500 toward their new endowment fund, which is being matched by $7,500 from the Smart & Caring Community Fund. “We created the Smart & Caring Community Fund in response to a call last year from the Governor General of Canada, The Right Honourable David Johnston,” said Sandra Richardson, CEO of the Victoria Foundation. “He asked the country’s community foundations to join him in bringing to life a vision for a smarter and more caring nation. This endowment initiative is one way of responding to his goals to expand the reach of community foundations and to help more organizations respond to their clients’ individual needs and opportunities.” As well, $100,000 in matching funds from the Smart & Caring Community Fund is being used to support a physical literacy program for children. This pilot program with The Cridge Centre for the Family, Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence and Pacific Sport Victoria was officially launched on July 19 with Governor Gen-

eral David Johnston in attendance. Donations will continue to be accepted for this program. The opportunity to participate in the matching program was offered to registered charities that had previously contacted the Victoria Foundation to discuss setting up an endowment. It was soon fully subscribed by astute Boards of Directors who knew a good opportunity when they saw one. As part of its charitable activities, the Victoria Foundation manages 100 endowment funds for 75 registered charities, annually distributing earnings from these permanent funds to the organizations. The Foundation accepts donations to the funds on behalf of the charities, thereby reducing their costs and administration time. The funds also benefit from the diversification of being part of the Foundation’s $180million in assets under management. Gifts to any of the endowment funds that are managed by the Victoria Foundation can be made online at www.victoriafoundation.bc.ca. Donations may also be made directly to the Victoria Foundation by credit card, cheque or publicly traded securities. Contact the Foundation at 250-381-5532 for more information on these donation options.

The organizations participating in this matching program are: • 1UP Victoria Single Parent Resource Centre • Bateman Foundation • Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver Island • City of Victoria Shape Your Future Victoria Legacy Fund • Island Deaf and Hard of Hearing Society • Learning Through Loss Society • Maritime Museum of BC • Metchosin Foundation • Mount Douglas Secondary Alumni Association • Pacific Peoples’ Partnership • Prostate Centre • Saanich Legacy Foundation • Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre

Since 1936, the Victoria Foundation’s permanent endowment has had the power to connect people who care with causes that matter. If you wish to make a difference in your community – one that has lasting impact, start here. Call Sandra Richardson, CEO for information at 250.381.5532. www.victoriafoundation.bc.ca

1. The Maritime Museum of BC represents a rich and vast link to the province’s nautical roots by maintaining a large collection of artifacts, photographs and charts, and running popular public and school programs. 2. The Prostate Centre, a community-based health organization, is a resource centre for Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands patients and their families coping with prostate cancer. 3. The Metchosin Foundation encourages and supports the rural nature of Metchosin while preserving and safeguarding the unique ecosystems, flora and fauna for everyone to enjoy.

Junior B hockey season begins this week Travis Paterson News staff

B

rian Burke can say whatever he wants, and often does. But when the esteemed general manager of the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs told Victoria Cougars owner Gary Boyer about the growing reputation of junior B hockey, the fact is, he didn’t need to. It was during the Abbotsford-hosted Cyclone Taylor Cup provincial championship in March that Boyer ran into Burke in the lobby of an Abbotsford hotel. Burke was there to watch the AHL playoff series between the Abbotsford Heatand the Leafs’ farm club, the Toronto Marlies. “(Burke) wanted to know who our team was, he said, ‘junior B in B.C. is the best in Canada and your drawing the attention of the NCAA,’” Boyer said. It’s an easy thing to say, sure, but it also doesn’t come as a surprise. The Cougars are sending five players to college this fall from the 2011-12 team. Three to the NCAA, and two to the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League. Defenceman Kurtis Kunz, who is actually from Utah, is going to the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, an NCAA Div. 1 program. Making the jump to Div. 1 from junior B is pretty rare, but it’s starting to happne, Boyer said. The other Cougars going to the NCAA are Colin Minardi to Finlandia University in Michigan, a Div. III program, and Josh Wyatt, who committed to Weber State University, in Utah, a Div. II team. Going to the BCIHL are Connor Stephens to Selkirk College and Steve Axford to Okanagan College. It’s not first set of Cougars to go directly to the NCAA, as Jimmy Carter and Jordan Zalba had previously made the jump. “Every year we make the promise to our players to do everything we can to help them with post-secondary and junior A aspirations,” coach Mark Van Helvoirt said. “We want to get our younger kids up to the junior A level as soon as possible, but there’s older kids, and we want them to be motivated too.” To help the 19 and 20 year olds, Van Helvoirt and staff create video packages of the players and

It’s also becoming easier to move players on due to the fact our previous players are doing a good job.”

Cougars the team to beat With high-scoring captain Brody Coulter returning, the Victoria Cougars are the early favourites once again. The champs are coming off a dominating season in which the team was first in the regular season and won the Brent Patterson Memorial playoff trophy. But the Cougars also lost the provincial trophy on a flukey goal in overtime, which was just a few months ago, so motivation shouldn’t be a question mark. Neither is their leadership, under coach-of-the-year winner Mark Van Helvoirt. The Cougars did move five players from last year’s championship team to college this season, however, and more are hoping for junior A spots. But its all merely a matter of rebuilding around a core that is mostly there. The defence will closely resemble that of last year’s, while newcomer Garrett Brandsma

Bantam golfers hit top-10 Three Victoria golfers, two boys and one girl, finished in the top 10 in of the 2012 B.C. Championship Series for bantam age golfers (under-13), which finished at the Merritt Golf and Country Club on Tuesday. The bantam boys and girls Championship is contested annually for players aged 13 and younger as of the last day of the competition. Duncan’s Callum Davison captured the boys title with a 5-under

par and Richmond’s Katherine Chan won the girls title with a 4-under par. Victoria boys Keaton Gudz and Ethan Ko finished seventh and 10th, respectively. Gudz shot par 72 in both rounds to finish even and Ko shot a total nine-over par. Lexi Kondrak was the top female finisher from Victoria, 10th overall with a total round of 163, 19-over. sports@vicnews.com

scored 39 points in 39 games as an 18-year-old with the Comox Valley Glacier Kings last year.

Wolves will bring bite As the curtain draws back this week to reveal the Westshore Wolves, there will be a few surprises. The Wolves may not set the league on fire in its first season, but make no mistake – this is not the West Shore’s previous club, the Westshore Stingers. Wolves ownership has sold the idea of a clean break from the get-go, and now with head coach and general manager Victor Gervais in place, the Wolves are ready to walk the walk. Gervais led a long career in the pros before he enjoyed plenty of success handling the GM and coaching duties for the junior A Victoria Grizzlies in the B.C. Hockey League the past four seasons. And though Gervais never made the NHL, he crossed paths with plenty of NHL greats. During his journey in the minors, Gervais was on teams with future NHL coaches including Barry Trotz (Nashville Predators) and Joel Quenneville (Chicago Blackhawks), among others. In short, the transition period for

Gervais’ Wolves will be no different than any other team finding its chemistry in the early going. Add to that, Gervais has been a regular attendee at junior B games the last few years, and knows the league. He’s acquired a core of veterans from around the league and top prospects out of midget, which the Stingers never did.

The Braves are back Last year the Braves got something the team was desperately missing – a star. It had been several years since the Braves had a scorer who topped 25 points when Ty Jones returned to captain the club. Jones scored 75 points in 34 games. He won the league MVP, shared the scoring title with Steven Axford and carried the team to its best playoff run in the recent era. The Braves may have suffered a crushing semifinal loss to the Peninsula Panthers, but with Jones coming back, the team is riding high as a premier club in the league. Add to that the likely WHL promotion of Jack Palmer, who won the league’s rookie of the year award, and coach Brad Cook has a brand he can sell to future players. sports@vicnews.com

Vees’ Murphy de-commits from NCAA Penticton Vees forward Wade Murphy, of Victoria, has reversed his previously signed letter of intention to play hockey for Merrimack College, a Div. 1 men’s program in the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The team announced Murphy’s decision on the weekend, saying they expect the Spectrum Community school graduate to return for the 2012-13 season. “These situations are never

easy,” Vees coach-general manager Fred Harbinson said in a team statement. “Wade simply felt he rushed into a decision and has decided he wants to reevaluate where he will play college hockey next year.” Murphy has played 145 career games in the BCHL so far. He made the Victoria Grizzlies from the Saanich Braves and, following his explosion as an offensive player in the 2011-12 season, was

traded to the Vees. He bagged 27 points in 28 games during the Vees run as BCHL, Doyle Cup (Western Canada) and RBC Cup (national) champions. The Grizz host the Powell River Kings for the final preseason game, 1 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 2) at Bear Mountain Arena, and start the season at the inaugural BCHL showcase in Chilliwack, Sept. 7 and 8. sports@vicnews.com

Before he was an Olympian, Dylan Wykes torched the McNeill Bay Half Marathon in exactly one hour and four minutes last year.

Former WLA great Nirmal Dillon is back as head coach of the Victoria Shamrocks junior A lacrosse team. “It is with great pleasure I announce the appointment of Nirmal Dillon to the head coach position,” said general manager Rod Wood. “Dillon is the last coach to win the minto cup in Victoria and I am confident that a team lead by him can bring it back again.” Dillon previously held an assistant coaching position with the club, and replaces Larry Smeltzer. sports@vicnews.com

H

elping others and giving back to the community is second nature to Kathryn Goodyear. The 50-year-old West Shore resident, and former member of the Sidney North Saanich RCMP detachment, was a police officer for more than 30 years. After spending most of her career in Alberta, including two years in Nunavut, Goodyear retired from the RCMP in June 2011. However, she continues to work as a reserve police officer at Victoria International Airport. “I still wanted to be able to give back to the community,” she said. Her willingness to help others is why Goodyear is riding the length of Vancouver Island, raising funds for pediatric cancer research as she represents the local RCMP detachment in this year’s Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. “That’s basically what policing is, working with and working for the community.” While Goodyear has not personally been affected by cancer, a close friend dealt with the disease. In 2005, her friend’s son was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a type of cancer that causes the bone marrow to produce excess white blood cells. A year after recovering, in 2008, the young boy relapsed and required a bone marrow transplant. The boy’s brother stepped up. Today, the

Members of the public can visit the display, learn more about Goodyear, the Tour de Rock – and donate. young man has been cancer-free for seven years. Seeing the support available to her friend, who was a single mother, inspired Goodyear. “The fight itself with cancer is hard enough without having to worry about your employment and your mortgage and all the other stuff that goes with it,” she said. The Tour would be nothing without the support of the Island communities making an effort to raise funds for kids with cancer, she added. “Everybody buys into the fact that these kids need this help.” Goodyear recalls a trip to Camp

Goodtimes with her Tour team in mid-July. The only thing different about the summer camp for kids who have or had cancer is that there’s an oncologist on site, she said. “The kids were laughing and screaming,” she said. “If this money can put that kind of smile on their face, and (allow them to) forget about (their cancer) …” Goodyear paused, unable to find the words to continue. Gearing up for the Tour de Rock, which starts Sept. 23 in Port Alice, Goodyear said she looks forward to getting caught up in the spirit of fundraising and supporting the families she meets along the ride.

Readersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rides: Hittinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the Mother Road!

BY IM READERS JOHN SKIPP AND MARK PRIVĂ&#x2030; WITH PHOTOS BY MARK PRIVĂ&#x2030; AND MICHAEL TURGEON

We left Las Vegas in the heat of a 100-degree day, hungover, bruised and battered but not beaten by an all-nighter at the blackjack table. Sin City had reeled us in for a bit, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to keep us there for good. Not when we were this close to Route 66. The Mother Road isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what it used to be; now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more a state of mind than an interstate. But once it was the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Main Street of America,â&#x20AC;? steaming 2,400 miles west from Chicago all the way to Los Angeles, carrying schemers, dreamers, migrants and nearly the entire state of Oklahoma when the Dust Bowl of the Dirty Thirties tore the heart out of America. When homes and farms collapsed under the weight of a decade-long depression, California seemed the only place green and full of promise left to go. Today, its length is fractured by the shiny, high-speed Interstate Highway System, but parts of it still linger as true Americana. It had been a dream, a full two years in the planning, to ride our motorcycles down old Route 66

through the heartland of America, and when we left Victoria there were three of us: John Skipp on his 2006 HarleyDavidson Road King Custom; Michael Turgeon on his custom 1999 Fat Boy; and Mark PrivĂŠ on his 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 2000. When we finally rolled into Kingman, Arizona nothing could have been more beautiful than the signpost that read: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Historic Route 66.â&#x20AC;? From this point on, we had no destinations in mind, no reservations to meet, just one goal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to see all we could and sleep when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen enough. After a stopover at a friendly tavern for some much-needed water to soak our heads, we pushed on down the longest continuous stretch of daily travelled Route 66 to Seligman, where we bunked at the Historic Route 66 Motel. An old but still comfortable motel, it has the names of all the famous people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d stayed there on every door. We were in the same room where Burl Ives had once slept and three doors down from where Bill Haley and the Comets had once hung their axes. A great breakfast can be had at the Road Kill Cafe next door where everything on the menu is named after ... well, you can probably guess. The house speciality is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pulverized Possum,â&#x20AC;? AKA bacon and eggs. Hopefully it was bacon. Historic Seligman is said to be the town Radiator Springs was modeled after in the film, Cars, and as we pulled out of town, the tow truck called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Materâ&#x20AC;? hoved into view â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from the same animated movie in an old abandoned gas station. The next week and a half was

Americana at its best and now being acclimated to the heat, every minute was an adventure. The road to Flagstaff just a few hours east is steeped in history and easily navigated. Notably, you pass through Williams, the gateway to the south rim of the Grand Canyon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; definitely not to be missed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pull your bike right up to the edge for pictures. On next to Flagstaff to find accommodations, then after a great dinner and a good nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleep, we were back on the road heading toward Winslow, where we followed The Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; advice to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take it Easyâ&#x20AC;? by standing on THE corner.

Being a drummer and lead singer for a rock band, Michael found this to be an almost religious experience and was at one point almost overwhelmed by the legendary street corner.

ROUTE 66 Continued from Pg. B1

Just to the east, a few short miles off the route, is the Giant Meteor Crater, and side excursions such as the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. Further east, we pulled into Holbrook in hope of spending the night in a tepee at the famous Wig Wam Motel. Arriving around 6 p.m. made us too late apparently; they book up very early. But at our motel that night we were introduced to Tore and Henrik from Denmark with whom we had a great night swapping stories. Along the road, we discovered that many Europeans flock to Route 66 in search of Americana. Leaving Arizona, we entered New Mexico on July 4, passing the Continental Divide where all rivers to the west flow to the Pacific, while those to the east run un n tto the Atlantic. This is all high desert, ert, with elevations soaring to 7,500 feet above sea level. With July 4 behind us, and a new lease on life, we set out on the road again. Because of its now broken nature, Route 66 can start to get a little confusing and, at this point, it should have been just an hour or so to Albuquerque, but a wrong turn and a big southern swing took us to a small town by the name of Los Lunas. A good map is a must, and check it often. We used a great Route 66 book called EZ 66, but even it can be confusing as a lot of the route has been renamed and decommissioned. The further east we travelled the more interesting the route

got, with the added bonus being this part of the road is not in regular use. Quite often we were the only vehicles on it for mile after mile, making for some very laid-back riding. A drastic comparison from having to hop on Interstate 40 that parallels or even overlays Route 66 when it breaks up and becomes unridable on a cruiser. At Tucumcari we found another of the many small towns that are mostly now forgotten with the addition of I-40, but with a fantastic stretch of old weathered and worn closed-up motels, gas stations and curious shops.

It has awesome food and awe one of the best gift shops to load up on Route 66 memorabilia. Don’t leave without trying a slice of one of their varieties of ugly crust pie. With a full belly, the road would next bring us to the Cadillac Ranch, which seems to be in the middle of nowhere but is a “must” stop. It seems the tradition is to bring your can of spray paint and leave your mark on one of ten 1950s-era Caddies buried halfway in the ground, dead square in the middle of a farmer’s field. We spent that night in Shamrock, which incidentally resides in a county that had been dry for the past 74 years.

That all changed two weeks before we arrived, although quite a few establishments still had no alcohol to serve as they were awaiting the permits to do so. Very likely, by the time this issue goes to press all that will have changed. Shamrock is also home to the most beautifully restored building on Route 66: The self-proclaimed “Redneck Capital of the World,” in Erick, the Tower Station and Oklahoma, along Route 66.

McLaren Special Operations, the division of McLaren Automotive responsible for the delivery of bespoke projects has presented one-off supercar. Called the McLaren X-1 and based structurally on the company’s groundbreaking carbon MonoCell but with a totally unique body, it has been created for an anonymous car enthusiast. It’s not every day that a team gets to create something unique in a project that would take the supercar, even by McLaren standards, to a different level. The challenge began with a special brief. A client who already owned a McLaren F1, a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and now a 12C, wanted a unique car that wrapped in a unique body that reflected his needs and personality. The design team brought together hundreds of images from the world of automotive, architecture, fashion, design and even film. These were then presented to the customer, and were narrowed down to a mood book, full of inspiring images from which the design spirit of this unique car would be derived. Inspirational cars included a 1961 Facel Vega, a 1953 Chrysler D’Elegance Ghia, a 1959 Buick Electra, a 1939 Mercedes-Benz 540K and a 1971 Citroen SM. There were various examples of architecture – including the Guggenheim museums in New York and Bilbao – plus a Jaeger LeCoultre art deco clock, an Airstream trailer, a Thomas Mann Montblanc pen, a grand piano – and an eggplant. The X-1 had its own development program because crucially, this wasn’t to be a fragile concept car that would never see tarmac. It was to be a usable car, road legal and capable of travelling at supercar speeds. It also had to comfortably seat two adults so although the 12C was already as shrinkwrapped as it could be from a packaging perspective, the ingenious flexibility of the MonoCell allowed the creation of a completely different form while maintaining the engineering purity of a McLaren.

McLaren Special Operations, took 18 months to create the X1 which combines influences from cars like the Facel Vega and Citroen SM, a Jaeger LeCoultre art deco clock and an eggplant.
