Oak Bay Police all a-Twitter Force uses social media tool to connect with community Tim Collins News staff

Sgt. Ian Craib worked the night shift in Oak Bay during the long weekend. Of course, if you follow the Oak Bay Police Twitter account, you already know that. Since April of this year, Craib and Police Chief Mark Fisher have been tweeting about the work of the Oak Bay Police Department. Most often, the tweets are designed to create awareness of police and community issues. “It’s a great way to engage individuals within the community that we might never otherwise have contact with,” said Fisher. Sgt. Ian Craib “We use it for news releases, information regarding current events, and other issues affecting the department. We also use it to open a dialogue with people regarding our work and their concerns in the community.” Sometimes the tweets are coming from Craib as he’s on the job. “This past weekend, while Sgt. Craib was on duty, he managed to send out a few tweets regarding what was going on and what he was dealing with. It was a great way to let people know the kind of challenges we’re facing out there and how we’re managing them,” said Fisher. “It also gives us the chance to alert the public about things that they should be looking out for.” “Obviously we’re doing the job first,” he added. “But if we have the chance to send a few tweets, it helps people understand what we’re facing out there.” Police use of social media isn’t a new concept. Mike Russell, the Media Relations and Social Media Officer for the Victoria Police Department says that his department has been using social media for the past three years. “We have 6,300 followers on Twitter and over 2,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook,” he said.

Hand analysis attracts mainstream crowd


Christine van Reeuwyk/News staff

Phyllis Campanello provides hand analysis for a client at Monterey rec centre in Oak Bay.

un streams through skylights warming an open hand as sticky black ink rolls across the palm. Phyllis Campanello controls the application, smoothing black over each finger and the thumb before carefully pressing the hand onto plain white paper then pulling it away. The whorls and loops of each fingertip appear clearly on the page. Campanello starts on the left hand as the scent of fresh coffee fills the room and a Christine group of ladies van Reeuwyk gather around a nearby table. Reporting In the hub of activity at Monterey Recreation Centre, Campanello has a small seating area tucked into the corner near the Fern Café. This is where the Oak Bay woman practices her “system based on science” of modified palmistry. The handprints are just the first step; it’s a document like a medical file, she says. “Then they have a record of where they were at that moment in time,” she explains. Campanello offered her first mainstream hand analysis presentation here last month. The response stunned her, and Monterey coordinator Lesley Cobus. “I shouldn’t be (surprised). … Like anything, the person sells their business and Phyllis is extraordinary. She’s compelling,” Cobus says. “She is just a real person who’s got these skills. She builds trust and rapport with people and so I think they feel safe with her, because she’s not flaky.” Hand analysis wasn’t even on the periphery of Cobus’ mind for the program rotation at Monterey but she was quickly sold on the idea. “I think everyone’s curious,” Cobus adds. “She’s a professional and people trust her. I like that in any instructor.” After the printing, Campanello seats the client, offers a drink of water, then delves into the hands, touching, pointing, even drawing on areas she wants to bring attention to. She maps out

her points on a paper, assigning spiritual homework. Her enthusiasm highlights her enjoyment of the job – and she wants to share. “I wanted something that was in my community,” Campanello explains. “The presentation was to test the water and it drew people from 20- to 80-year-olds and even men.” Despite the first Oak Bay street market and warm sunshine drawing people outdoors, Campanello’s presentation attracted more than 50 people, almost twice the number expected. “I had no idea what kind of response we would have because it’s such a conservative community (in Oak Bay),” says Campanello, who retired here six years ago from San Francisco. “Victoria is very progressive, which is why my husband and I chose to move here.” Cobus attributes the crowd to open minds, despite Oak Bay’s reputation as a conservative area. “Vancouver Island in general is home to a lot of artistic, creative people, and people with that inclination, their mind is open,” Cobus says. “She sparks that curiosity in people and they want to come and learn more. Maybe there’s insight to be gained from exploring this kind of thing.” Hand analysis and seminars are being planned for the fall schedule at Monterey. Call 250-370-7300 for more information on programs at the Oak Bay centre.

Hampshire lot use a hot topic


A little house on a little lot behind CIBC on the Avenue is up for discussion by council this fall. Oak Bay bought the property at 1531 Hampshire Rd. in 1990, acting as a landlord for the single family residence since. “We want to ask our residents to help us. … What is the best use for this piece of property?” said Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen. “It can be anywhere from a “Parking to me small park to a bicycle parking lot to a private is something we sale to some kind of a need to maintain.” municipal building.” - John Herbert The property was considered by council for a parking lot in 2007. That never came to fruition. “It was bought for parking,” said Coun. John Herbert, who still holds concern for parking in the village. “Parking to me is something we need to maintain.” With a nearly 28 per cent senior population and families driving to and fro for activities, the need for parking won’t diminish, he said. “I’m hopeful we don’t sell it,” he said, noting it could be developed into a little park. “If we never need parking, it’s a beautiful green space. If we need parking, we have it.”

Council asked municipal staff to canvass the public in search of ideas for the space, to learn what it hopes to see there. “My one area I’m leaning away from is to use it as a parking lot. I think that is probably not the highest and best use for the property,” Jensen said. “I think the general sense is that the core of the village has enough parking. That we can put a better use to this lot.” Where Herbert and Jensen agree is that the house on the lot is in poor condition, and would require a significant investment to renovate. “My one area Staff have already I’m leaning away seen some input from from is to use it as a the public and expect to have a report back parking lot.” to council this fall. - Nils Jensen “I’m sure there’s lots of people out there who have given thought to this,” Jensen said. Submit input via email to, or by dropping off a letter at the municipal hall, 2167 Oak Bay Ave.

Students create washrooms for all Student union facilities made gender neutral News staff

Men, women, transgendered – it’s all the same for washroom privileges at the University of Victoria Student Union Building. Two formerly gendered washrooms in the SUB have opened as multi-stall gender inclusive facilities, allowing all people to share the same space. “We’re doing this in order to create safe spaces for everyone, because everyone deserves to go to the washroom without fear of harassment or discrimination,” said Emily Rogers, chairperson of the UVic Students’ Society. The washrooms, which opened a as gender inclusive space last Wednesday, now have a picture of a toilet on the door rather than a symbol of a male or female.

UVic hosts world-record game Brittany Lee News staff

Heading back to class can be stressful, but the University of Victoria’s Students’ Society has a week of events planned to welcome students back to school. The “Campus Kickoff” week features a series of party and fundraising events, and notably, a worldrecord capture the flag game this Saturday in partnership with the Victoria Sport and Social Club. “We were trying to find something that’s open to everyone on campus and a fun, silly way of starting the year off with a higher energy campus-wide event,” says Lewis

Rhodes, director of events with the UVSS. To get into the Guinness World Records, the UVSS needs at least 250 participants for the game. As of last week, there were 500 students registered, however, Rhodes expects about 1,000 players to come out. The last campus-wide event the UVSS held was a lip dub to Michael Buble’s Haven’t Met You Yet in 2010. That event saw more than 1,000 students. “It’s all about creating community on campus… in a fun, positive way,” Rhodes says. People wanting to participate in the world record attempt can regis-

Picket line hits UVic Job action will escalate unless bargaining begins Kyle Slavin News staff

Picketing employees greeted thousands of students returning to classes at the University of Victoria this week. But the two unions currently undertaking job action say students won’t be impacted by the strike until Sept. 17 at the earliest. “What would (the strike) look like from the week of the 17th on if the employer is not back at the bargaining table? The unions will have to start impacting buildings and services that would have an impact on students,” said Doug Sprenger, president of CUPE 951. “We really hope to avoid this, and we call on the employer to come back to the bargaining table.” Wednesday (Sept. 5) was the first day CUPE 917 and 951 took job action. The two unions represent some 1,500 non-teaching jobs such as food service staff, childcare workers and library staff, and have both been without contracts since March 31, 2010. Members of CUPE 917 started picketing outside the Saunders building on campus at 9 a.m. Wednesday. CUPE 951 members didn’t picket, but that union instituted an overtime ban and workto-rule. Sprenger said there are no plans for a full strike during September, but noted that the unions won’t share information about

when and where job action will take place. “We have to keep the employer guessing as to where and when the picket line will go up,” he said. At issue for the unions is job security and inflation protection, Sprenger said. “We’re very disappointed that after two years of collective bargaining not one issue of substance has been signed off. We feel that with the impending budget cuts, we have no other alternative than to take strike action to achieve our goal of a fair and reasonable settlement,” he said. The university, in a press release on Tuesday, expressed “disappointment” that the unions were poised to take job action. “While the two locals have spent the summer putting themselves in a legal position to take job action, they have yet to respond with a counter offer to the university’s settlement offer made nearly two and a half months ago,” UVic said. “We are prepared to sit down at any time because that’s where an agreement is going to be reached,” said Bruce Kilpatrick, UVic’s director of communications. “We’ve been planning for the possibility of job action for several months now. … I would never say that we have prepared for all eventualities, we’ve done good preparation and good planning, and depending on what job action is taken, we’re in a good position to respond.” In late August, the unions and UVic went before the Labour Relations Board to negotiate

essential service levels. Among the issues was staffing for residence food and custodial services. While food services weren’t deemed an essential service, the employment of one cleaner is essential. Neither of those will be impacted, however, until Sept. 17. Sprenger said classrooms, labs, the bookstore and UVic childcare will operate as normal for the time being. Employees who could strike prior to Sept. 17, with no or little direct impact on students, include electricians, plumbers, grounds workers, auditorium staff, office and technical workers. “I think it’s fair to say that any kind of job action has the potential to have an impact on students,” Kilpatrick said. “If nothing else, at the very least it would draw off people who would otherwise be doing things that would benefit students.” The two other unions at the university – CUPE 4163 and the Professional Employees Association – support the job action. “If there is a picket line outside your building, we are recommending that you show your support by not crossing. If you are in a position to do so, we are certain the strikers will appreciate you joining them on the line for some time,” said Greg Melnechuk, CUPE 4163 president, in a statement to his members. “Solidarity as union members is our strength. The more effective the picket line – the greater the likelihood that it will be a shorter strike.”

Insurance for the seasonal traveller. The season is turning, the sun is lower in the sky and leaves are showing their fall colours. It’s the time of year when people are finalizing their plans for lengthy trips to scenic U.S. destinations to escape the Canadian winter. While considering destinations, accommodations, transportation and activities for long stays, travellers are no-doubt researching travel insurance too. The cost of medical care in the U.S. can be pricey, and a single misadventure could spell the end of a much anticipated trip. The Canadian government recommends that travellers purchase travel insurance when leaving the country. Medical care outside of Canada is extremely expensive and provincial health care may not cover all of your medical expenses incurred out of the province. When researching travel insurance, there are three important things for people to consider: What is your health status? Depending upon your age, some policies might require you to complete a health questionnaire. This needs to be answered accurately to ensure you have the correct coverage. If necessary, purchase preexisting condition coverage so that you’re covered in the event you have a claim relating to a pre-existing condition. What is your trip duration? For some, one lengthy trip of 30 to 90 days may be all



that is planned. However, if you are planning multiple trips, it may be more economical to purchase an annual multi-trip plan. Do you require Trip Cancellation or Interruption coverage? Of course, it is disappointing to have to cancel a trip for any reason, from a missed connection to an unexpected illness. Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption Insurance ensures that you won’t suffer the financial burdens typically associated with such events. But note that there is a difference between the two coverages: Trip Cancellation insures you if your travel plans are cancelled prior to departure, while Trip Interruption coverage insures you if your trip is disrupted after it has already begun. To ensure you are fully informed to make the best decision regarding your travel insurance needs, visit a BCAA Service Centre and speak with an Insurance Specialist today. Make the most of your next trip with BCAA Travel Insurance. Marci-Lyn Braithwaite is an Insurance Specialist at BCAA. She can be reached at

Inclusive johns push boundaries That the University of Victoria Students’ Society transformed two washrooms into gender inclusive facilities in the Student Union Building, may seem an odd step, but it is a welcome one. The goal of the two gender inclusive washrooms – one with a bunch of stalls, the other with stalls and urinals – is to create a safe space for people of all sexual orientations and genders, including the transgendered. People shouldn’t fear entering a public washroom out of fear of not looking “male” or “female” enough, and possibly being ridiculed. This kind of idealistic inclusiveness is perfect for locales such as the UVic student union building, a place that should push the boundaries of society, culture and gender norms. But a gender neutral washroom that is a multistall facility is less likely to have success outside the campus, or even the SUB. It will likely be hard for some men and women to overcome discomfort of the other gender wandering into what has been a singlesex bastion for generations. At the risk of generalizing, many women complain of how men are messy and have poor aim when it comes to the toilet. And for now, the gender neutral washroom is more a statement than a practical solution to people uncomfortable in traditional singlesex washrooms. If a student is in the medical sciences building or the MacLaurin music wing, it’s unlikely he or she would hoof it across campus to make use of the new facility. When UVic moves past its labour issues, it may want to explore the notion of more gender neutral spaces on campus. Universities are places where boundaries are tested; places where the envelope is pushed – and not just by the student union. Student society rep Emily Rogers said she hopes the gender inclusive washroom will, “be a symptom of a larger social change and conception of how people view gender.” If that’s the goal, then kudos to the UVSS. But real change will only be made by widespread support of the initiative by students and faculty.

eaten piece of banoffee pie. I even began pondering the salaries of celebrity gossip copyeditors, researchers, interns. Was I squandering my talent in the cubicle of a community newsroom while these people clinked glasses with the wealthy and beautiful elite? Was I the sucker, patiently putting in my time with the hope of eventually chipping away at the corporate ladder? Then I read a gossip magazine. I had to. It was a boring ferry ride and I had long since exhausted my archived episodes of Mad Men. What I found in this unnamed publication wasn’t actually writing at all. It was a collection of publicists’ press releases, massaged into 1,000 words a piece and laced with perfectly formed quotes to give the appearance of one-on-one interviews. When I arrived at the cover story, Chavril’s airbrushed photos conveyed all the authenticity of a billboard advertisement for chewing gum. It was at that moment I returned to reality.

LETTERS ICBC situation boggles reader’s mind Wow, the CEO of the Insurance Corporation of B.C. has 23 vice-presidents to help him manage his 5,000 employee empire. Even U.S. President Barack Obama runs a country of approximately 312 million people with only one vicepresident. After the audit of ICBC and its scathing review, the CEO of ICBC tendered his resignation and indicated he would leave by November of this year. He is, however, willing to remain on as a consultant and collect his full salary and bonuses of approximately $485,500 until June 2013. Considering the mess ICBC seems to be in, why do we need any more of his consulting assistance? It is also very difficult to comprehend that it is going to take up to two years to eliminate 200 positions from this B.C. corporation seemingly bloated with upper management. Martin Battle Victoria

Rationale still unclear for liquor privatization Re: B.C. liquor laws finally effective (B.C. Views, Aug. 15) One thing that Tom Fletcher and other media have failed to do is fully inform the public about the financial case for privatizing the warehousing and distribution branch of the Liquor Control Branch. Minister of Energy and Mines Rich Coleman and the B.C. Liberals have certainly not been called to proper account on this issue. Forget about the union angle; this ‘monopoly’ provides B.C.’s coffers with a hefty income. Why do the Liberals, our ‘free enterprise’ party, want to sell off this asset? Even B.C.’s craft beer industry folks have questioned this proposal and they are the small business people who help create employment. Who will benefit from such a sale? Friends and insiders? I look forward to an in-depth

article on this issue, soon, in one of Mr. Fletcher’s columns. Pat McGuire Victoria

Torture cartoon is no laughing matter I write this in regards to a cartoon on your editorial page regarding torture: I have yet to decide what is more disturbing the fact that our government, under the leadership of a Christian family man, thinks that torture is OK, or that this subject is somehow humorous. Is this the kind of country we want to live in and be proud of? Is this the kind of country where new immigrants, some escaping this type of treatment in their home country, will want to immigrate? It’s truly time to give ourselves a collective shake, and think about just where this path leads. Bob Mabee Saanich

Cyclist licensing would enhance safety Re: Is it time to licence cyclists? (Letters, Aug. 29) When I moved to Victoria from Hamilton in 1983, I was very surprised that I did not have to purchase a licence for my bike. As a child in Hamilton, I had to purchase my own licence, which at the time was only 50 cents for a child under the age of 12. After the age of 12, the cost increased. Likewise for those over the age of 16. As a former journalist, I wanted to do some research on this and called the Hamilton Police Department. The officer said that they no longer licence bicycles, but thought that it would be a good idea to reinstate them. On Aug. 28, I was driving west on Walnut Street in Victoria when all of a sudden, a girl of about 14 or 15 came barrelling through from Oregon Avenue right in front of me. She didn’t look either way, nor was she wearing a helmet. She had an earplug in her ear, (probably listening to music, which should be


another no-no for bicycle riders), so probably didn’t even hear my car at the intersection. I slammed on my brakes, missing her by only a few inches, yet she didn’t turn around or even act like she heard me and carried on towards Bay Street. If that girl had a licence on the back of her bike, I would have been able to get her number and would have gladly reported her to the police. Imagine the parents realizing that their lovely daughter was inches away from perhaps a permanent injury, or even death. That girl will probably never know that she was almost hit. It’s a good thing that I am familiar with that corner and am always careful and looking all around. There is also a playground on that corner and one never knows when a small child is going to run out to chase a ball. Please licence all bicycles. That way we can report folks with no helmets, close calls and traffic violators. Audrey Scammell Victoria

Tour de Rock car pull Sunday Chef Audrey’s Daily

3 Course Dinner *

& Prime Rib Dinner Every Sunday

* excludes taxes

After spending most of the year hauling a weighted metal sled up Mount Doug, Kevin Nunn reckons he is ready to pull a car around Ring Road – 12 times. Nunn, a civilian equipment officer for the Saanich police, is scheduled to pull a 2,530 pound Mini Cooper around the main University of Victoria road on Sunday enough times to equal 21 kilometres. He’s aiming to raise $25,000 from the car pull for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, which will be split among the fundraising totals for tour riders and Saanich officers Niki Hodgkinson, Jett Junio and Jana Sawyer. Last year Nunn raised $14,000 for the tour by running 60 kilometres from Duncan to Victoria. “My body is feeling strong. I’ve been pulling the sled up Mount Doug. I’m as ready as I’ll ever be,” Nunn said. “I’m training hard, I’m looking forward to it. And the money is coming in nicely.” The 49-year-old who hails from Yorkshire, will be hard to miss – he’ll be outfitted in his trademark bleach-blonde Billy Idol haircut and Union Jack

The car pull happens Sunday. short-shorts and shoes. Nunn has pulled a Mini around Ring Road twice for training, once to establish the optimal harness position on his body, and once two weeks ago, as a true trial run. That lap took 37 minutes and he expects the 12

laps to take about 10 hours. Nunn plans to start the car pull at 6 a.m. Sunday morning (Sept. 9) in front of the Student Union Building. See for more information or to donate.

Premier unveils cabinet for election year Tim Collins News staff

B.C Premier Christy Clark unveiled her new 17-member cabinet to the public Wednesday. It’s the team she hopes will carry her to victory in the next provincial election. The notice comes in the wake of a series of announcements by sitting members that they will not be running in the next election. Kevin Falcon, George Abbott, Blair Lekstrom and Mary McNeil all announced their intention to step

aside when an election is called. Clark earlier received some good news with Rich Coleman’s announcement on Tuesday that the veteran MLA for Fort Langely-Aldergrove intends to stay with the Liberal party and will run again. Rumours were circulating that Coleman might either leave the Liberals or drop out of politics entirely. Coleman will take on the responsibility of Deputy Premier while continuing as energy and mines minister. Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Ida Chong, who moves from Community, Sport and

Cultural Development to Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation, is excited about her new responsibilities. “Today was a great day,” said Chong. “It was an opportunity for (the premier) to refresh and renew the cabinet. It’s an exciting time for British Columbia and we’re all anxious to get on with the job.” The cabinet shuffle sees the return of a few members, but also contains new faces. A notable move sees the finance portfolio going to Mike de Jong (formerly Minister of Health). He replaces the depart-


Join the celebration

ing Kevin Falcon in that role. Ben Stewart has assumed the open government portfolio, while the former open government minister, Margaret MacDairmid takes on the health portfolio. Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett returns to cabinet in a previous role, minister of community, sport and cultural development. Bennett was fired from cabinet in 2010 after harshly criticizing former premier Gordon Campbell. Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap was appointed minister of advanced education, a promotion from minister of state for multiculturalism. He replaces North Vancouver-Lonsdale MLA Naomi Yamamoto, who moves to a new role as minister of state for small business. Clark stressed that the cabinet represents renewal, with nine members first elected in 2009, and stability with veterans such as Coleman maintaining his portfolio. NDP leader Adrian Dix countered that the shakeup shows instability. Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux is the fifth minister in the children and families role in recent years, he said, and Langley MLA Mary Polak becomes the 11th minister in charge of ICBC during the B.C. Liberal government. - with files from Tom Fletcher

“We also post videos on YouTube to create awareness of crime prevention issues in the community,” said Russell. “But maybe the best thing about our use of Twitter is that we get to generate conversations with citizens about their thoughts and suggestions. It’s been very positive.” While the use of social media is relatively new to the Oak Bay Police, the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. “We’re still getting our heads around all the applications,” said Fisher. “But it’s something we’re very happy to be doing. In fact, in July, we even used Twitter to make people aware of a job opening we had within the department. It was great. I’m sure we’ll be doing a lot more of that sort of thing in the future.” Follow the Oak Bay Police on Twitter at @oakbaypolice.

Victoria welcomes classic art at street level First chalk art festival touches ground Edward Hill News staff

It’s a medium that is fleeting but delivers high art at street level. Chalk art lives at the mercy of the wind and rain and shoes. Most people who have strolled the old section of Government Street have seen this art from the talented hand of Ian Morris, who most often sketches recreations of the Renaissance masters – haunting images of Raphael, Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci. Where the work of Morris occupies small sidewalk spaces, the first Victoria International Chalk Art Festival will bring a full-blown exposition to Government Street next weekend. Five artists, including Morris, will have two days to create 8 x 10 foot masterpieces on Government, which will be closed between Fort and Yates streets. Tracy Lee Stum, the premier 3D chalk artist in the world, will start Sept. 12 in the lower level of the Bay Centre on a 20 x 20 foot creation. For Morris, this is the first time in his nine years as a chalk art-

ist that he’ll meet his peers from around North America. “From the start I hoped something like this would happen eventually. I’m proud to bring this art form to Victoria and proud it’s got to this level,” Morris said. “I’m eager to meet others of my tribe.” The 44-year-old artist admits he started street art as a means to pay the bills. Now he’s embraced the centuries-old tradition of the Madonnari – Italian folk artists focused on drawing images of the biblical Madonna on sidewalks. Morris focuses on Renaissance reproductions, but is also developing “3D” art – images that appear eerily three dimensional when viewed at a specific angle through a camera lens. “I enjoy the classical reproductions a lot. There’s power in them – grace, beauty, history,” Morris says. “But I got tired of people asking me about 3D (chalk art), so I decided to up my game. They’re a lot of fun, but it’s like learning to draw all over.” Morris sees his art as part of a larger tapestry of encouraging a vibrant downtown core and cre-

Government Street chalk art fixture Ian Morris helped inspire Victoria’s first chalk art festival, starting next week.

ating compelling public spaces grounded in art and culture. “My real imperative is community. (My art) is a tool to make this a community where people want to be,” Morris says. “There’s more to city life than shopping and working – or there ought to be.” This philosophy meshes with the goals of John Vickers, creator of the chalk art festival, and the international busker festival, which completed its second season this summer. “This is part of a bigger picture. Years back I was looking to create three international festivals for the downtown,” says Vickers, noting that he’s looking at a kite festival for the third festival event. “I’m a passionate supporter of downtown. This is about creating free entry, family-friendly festivals in the downtown.” Vickers, known for his pumpkin art, had the inspiration for a chalk art festival after seeing Morris’ work, and then travelling to Sarasota, Fla., to see North America’s largest chalk art festival, organized by Denise Kowal. It’s Kowal’s connections that allowed Vickers to draw top talent to an untested, first-time festival in Victoria.

“It’s an opportunity to get a considerable number of people down there. An overwhelming number of merchants support this. It’s a boon to business,” Vickers said. “We’ve got to promote the downtown and give it more of a sense of community. We have to keep the downtown relevant.” “(Vickers) is on the same page as me. To make the downtown a human community you need life, and bringing festivals is a way to do that,” Morris agreed. Over the years, Morris has become an expert on creating art on sidewalks – he says the brick on Government street sidewalks is ideal for for chalk art. The pebbled road surface might be tougher. “The road is different. It’s like silk to sandpaper,” he says, shrugging. “You just do what you can.” Tracy Lee Stum will begin her chalk art drawing at the Bay Centre on Wednesday, Sept. 12. The other artists will create their pieces on Government Street on Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 15 and 16). The event is rain or shine (artists will have tents in the event of rain).

Joey MacDonald kneads his rainbow-stained hands methodically through a seafoam blue paint batch, carefully removing the remaining lumps from his latest concoction. He stands in a second-floor loft space on Fisgard Street, where he and his colleagues operate the Olio Collective, a space that spawns much of the visual art for the Rifflandia festival. “Rifflandia has been around for five years and they’ve always had some kind of art component,” MacDonald said. “Artlandia is that art component.” Stacks of unique prints and plastic paint jars cover the room’s only table, an organized chaos that hints at last-minute preparations for Artlandia’s grand opening, Sept. 7 at 517 Pandora St. “This last year we pitched Rifflandia with a bunch of ideas for art installations that were very visual, very interactive and that incorporated local artists,” MacDonald said. The Live!Stock poster show, where 15 artists create unique screenprint posters for 15 Rifflandia performers, is one of three exhibits that will be revealed today at the Rifflandia headquarters. The second display, Headspace, allows onlookers the chance to be a part of the piece by placing their faces into the artwork. It was a huge hit at last year’s festival. Lastly, the R&A Line is a 1/4-scale five-car train. Each car is assigned to different artists to create a completely unique interactive art installation, including a car by Scott Smith that plays music and reacts to movement. “Based on how you move, you’ll be able to manipulate the music itself and visually see how it impacts the EQ (equalization),” MacDonald said. After Friday’s grand opening, the train and Headspace exhibits will be shown at Royal Athletic Park for the duration of Rifflandia, Sept. 13 to 16. For more information, visit

Region wants help fighting knotweed plant infestation Kyle Wells News staff

It’s a quiet invasion but the Capital Regional District wants homeowners to be diligent in identifying and properly disposing of the invasive species knotweed. The bamboo-like plant – in particular the Japanese, bohemian and giant varieties – is causing problems for waterways and other species of plants. The plant, originally from Asia, is edible and has some medicinal properties. But it is listed by many countries as one of the worst invasive species. In B.C., knotweed is considered a priority for eradication. “It’s a real vigorous one,” said Colwood parks manager Gordon Beauvillier, who is a member of the Captial Region Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP). Last year, CRD parks workers tackled a patch on the Galloping Goose trail that had spread to a six- to nine-metre square patch. The biggest problems, said Beauvillier, are when residents grow the invasive species as an ornamental plant or simply don’t remove it properly. “The stock and everything is very bamboo looking, it comes

Knotweed stems out with a nice, white flower,” Beauvillier said. The plant has hollow stems that can grow three to five metres tall. The leaves are heartshaped and come to a pointed tip. In late summer, the plant flowers with small white clusters. Despite its good looks, however, knotweed can cause serious problems. “It absolutely takes over waterway ecosystems,” Beauvillier said. “It will destroy waterways, which will destroy the wildlife and the fish habitat. It’ll clog waterways. … It’s a vigorous grower and it’s extremely hard to get rid of.” Disposal is at the heart of the problem. Knotweed is a tough plant. Beauvillier said there have been cases of the plants growing in landfills and it has also been known to grow through asphalt and concrete foundations.

For now, knotweed has mainly been kept to patches on private properties. Some property owners are tackling the plant on their own, but Beauvillier said the Coastal Invasive Plant Committee, in partnership with CRISP, can help with infestations. Knotweed needs to be disposed of properly or else it will grow back

and spread. “It’s the lack of information out there for people and the understanding of how bad it actually is that is really giving us a tough time,” Beauvillier said. To report knotweed, call CRISP at 250-8572472. For more information on the plant, visit coastalinvasiveplants. com.

Victoria a contender to land Ironman Canada Victoria ideal to host race with 3.8-km swim,180-km bike, and 42-km run Travis Paterson News staff

Elk Lake is a leading candidate to be the new home of Ironman Canada. The only problem is, Greater Victoria needs someone to rally the community in a hurry if it’s going to happen. The World Triathlon Corporation, which owns the Ironman brand, has openly expressed interest in relocating to southern Vancouver Island after its recent divorce from a 30-year marriage with Penticton. “The beautiful thing about Victoria, there is a communication pipeline, as an existing race (Subaru Western Triathlon Series) has done half the work, if not more than half the work,” Steve Meckfessel, managing director of global race operations for the WTC, said from Tampa. Fla. There are millions of reasons Victoria should want the race, as wherever it lands, it brings millions of dollars of economic impact. But there are plenty of challenges to be met and questions to be answered if Victoria is to be considered as the new permanent home, beginning in August 2013. The WTC has posted a Sept. 24 deadline for proposals, and is hoping to announce its selection by Oct. 10. “It all has to happen quickly, we were only approached by Ironman last week,” said Hugh MacDonald of SportHost Victoria. MacDonald has a rich history of bringing major events to Victoria including the Americas Rugby Championship next month and the 2013 Ford World Men’s Curling Cham-

Adding Ironman Canada to the summer schedule would only benefit, not hurt the annual June race, said local race organizer Lance Watson. pionship in April. But even he will need an energetic response from the community to make this happen. “The early deadline will be hard to meet, as it’s now (SportHost’s) job to check with the triathlon community to see if there’s enough will,” MacDonald said. “Before SportHost can endorse this as a good idea, we need to do the due diligence to see what’s required.” One expert says the impact on the local economy could reach $100 million within 10

Think outside the diamond Victoria Baseball Club names head coach and co-coach Travis Paterson News staff

The Victoria Baseball Club has named its head coach, and it’s a “them” not a “him.” Dennis Rogers and Bob Miller will share the duties as the head and co-head coaches, respectively, for the soon-to-benamed West Coast League baseball franchise. Boston-raised Rogers has managed minor league teams in the Pittsburgh Pirates and Oakland Athletics associations, including Oakland’s single-A affiliate Vancouver Canadians in 2003 and 2004. He’s currently head of the Riverside Community College baseball team in California, which he helped build from the ground up. Miller is a well seasoned college coach and has coached Cuesta College in California the past nine seasons. “I wanted to have someone to bounce ideas off of and Miller can handle it all – pitchers, infielders and outfielders,” Rogers said. “And I want to think outside of the box, if and when we can.”

years. But there are also questions around why the event was no longer welcome in Penticton, which opted for the Germanbased Challenge Family for 2013. The latter organization is a rival to the WTC, and will offer a triathlon called Challenge Penticton that uses the same distances. “The race developed over many years, and was great for Penticton, but it must mean something’s not right,” MacDonald said. Reports out of Penticton mention little

of the monetary controversy, however, and more to do with a convoluted fallout between Penticton, previous Ironman Canada organizer Graham Fraser and WTC, which bought up the world’s Ironman licences. Assuming Ironman in Victoria would draw its annual minimum of 2,500 athletes, the event should be celebrated, says Lance Watson, co-organizer of the Subaru Western Triathlon Series. “Victoria would be an awesome choice. It’s a triathlon hub of North America. Hosting it at Elk Lake is very doable, but it’s going to require a tremendous amount of political will.” Watson, who is known for coaching Simon Whitfield to gold at the 2000 Olympics, has been at the helm of the half-Ironman triathlon at Elk Lake that takes place every June. He knows what it takes to get Saanich and the surrounding municipalities on board. Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard is receptive to the idea, but is wary of municipal costs up front. “We like to be involved at the start of these things,” Leonard said. “If we’re in early and at the front end, it can be affordable.” What’s needed in Greater Victoria is someone to champion the Ironnman cause and align all the municipalities with Saanich at the heart of it, Meckfessel said. Central and North Saanich would also be key districts affected by the expansive bike and run loops. Victoria, View Royal, Highlands and Sidney are also on the potential bike loop, especially if it runs in one lap of 180 kilometres, though it can be split in half, while the run can be broken into thirds, or even quarters. “Ironman Europe in Frankfurt (Germany) is a four lap run, it sells out every year and it’s the European championship,” Meckfessel said. “We can make it work.”

OAK BAY NEWS - Friday, September 7, 2012

Black Press is proud to be an official sponsor for the 2012 Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, with news reporter Kyle Slavin on the 18-member tour team as a media rider. To follow Kyle Slavin’s Twitter updates from the final weeks of training and throughout the ride, follow @TDRKyle. ON TOUR: This year’s Tour de Rock begins in Port Alice on Sunday, Sept. 23 and ends Friday, Oct. 5 in Victoria. Tour de Rock raises funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research and programs. HELP OUT: Donations can be made at www. FIND OUT: To catch up on all the Tour de Rock news, photos and videos, go online to: tour-de-rock

MEDIA RIDERS LIVE THE STORY Journalists Kyle Slavin and Erin Glazier join Tour de Rock team Arnold Lim Black Press


hey started off reporting about Tour de Rock, and now journalists Kyle Slavin and Erin Glazier are part of the story. Slavin’s journey from writing stories about the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock to being part of it started in a high school gymnasium. At Reynolds secondary school to cover the event for the Saanich News last year, Slavin watched as 115 shaved “Raising money heads and a giant cheque more than $80,000 for kids with cancer for greeted Tour riders has a much bigger alongside ear-splitting cheers. The event moved reward than just the 25-year-old reporter crossing the finish so much he made an important decision that line.” day. – Erin Glazier, “There was not a dry CTV News eye in the gym. It was the most electric feeling being a part of something so monumental,” he said. “I told the school principal then and there I want to be a part of the team.” One year and 3,000 kilometres later, he is one of two media riders months into gruelling three-day-a-week training sessions for Tour de Rock, where motivation comes in the form of cancer survivors like seven-year-old Daisy Irwin. “(Daisy) has gone through a hell that no baby or child should ever go through. I

Kyle Slavin and Erin Glazier are ready to roll for Tour de Rock respect her immensely for what she has gone through and what she has overcome,” Slavin said. “My whole reasoning behind wanting to do the tour is being on the side of cancer everyone fights for – the optimism, the hope, the getting into remission.” Seven years later, Irwin is in remission after being diagnosed with two forms of leukemia as an infant and given a five per cent chance at survival. It is a reminder why the pediatric cancer research is so important to Slavin and Glazier. Glazier described her choice to join the team as a “no-brainer” after seeing her colleagues experience the life-changing ride. “Riding a bike becomes a menial task when

you look at the big picture and see how much you are helping (cancer patients) have a normal life,” said Glazier, a CTV reporter based in Victoria. “When you are going up a hill and hurting it is nothing compared to what those kids go through when they go through the treatment. That is a big motivator for us.” With only weeks to go, the 28-year-old Glazier is excited to meet the families and volunteers along the way as she makes the gruelling trip from Port Alice to Victoria over the two-week, 1,000-kilometre bike ride, Sept. 23 to Oct. 5. “The best is yet to come. Raising money for kids with cancer has a much bigger reward then just crossing the finish line,” Glazier said.
