Saanich chews over genetically modified foods Kyle Slavin News staff

After weighing in on such global issues as oil tanker traffic, plastic water bottles and shark fin soup, Saanich has now set its crosshairs on genetically modified food. The Healthy Saanich advisory committee will host a public meeting next month to gather input from residents, members of the industry and people involved in food production on issues surrounding genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and seed crops. “Healthy Saanich has a keen interest in local food, but it doesn’t have a particular expertise in the food industry. So we turned (the discussion) over to the Peninsula Agricultural Commission,” said Coun. Dean Murdock, chair of Healthy Saanich. “They came back with a recommendation that Saanich introduce a ban on GMO seed crops.” While a ban is what the commission recommended, Murdock says actions taken could include a resolution that simply states Saanich doesn’t support genetically modified crops, a municipal education campaign or writing to the federal ministers in charge of agriculture and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. “Exercising the precautionary principle is how PAC arrived at its recommendation for a ban,” Murdock said. From the advisory committee’s perspective, the unknown health effects of consuming genetically engineered food is worrying. PLEASE SEE: Civic ban, Page A6

University of Victoria theatre grad Emily Piggford stars in Frost as Naya, a young arctic hunter who longs for her father’s recognition as a capable disciple. The film debuts this week at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Spotlight on Victoria talent at TIFF Filmmaker, actress debut at prestigious Toronto International Film Festival Natalie North News staff

As filmmakers, actors and fans from around the world descend on Toronto for the Toronto International Film Festival, Greater Victoria won’t go unrepresented. Jeremy Ball, with his film Frost, is one of two Victoria-raised directors making their TIFF debuts this week. Frost stars recent University of Victoria theatre department

grad Emily Piggford as Naya, a young arctic hunter in search of food. The 13- minute sci-fi thriller, produced through the dramatic short film program at the Canadian Film Centre, was shot entirely on a sound stage in Toronto and through the magic of post-production, landed Naya in an icy arctic backdrop. The film gave 38-year-old Ball, who has worked in visual effects on large-scale productions since attending the Beijing Film Academy, the chance to apply his knowledge to his own work, as he completed 25 to 30 of the 80 visual effect shots in Frost. “There’s a school of thought where the director can hand over a cut of the film and be very loosely involved in the visual

effects, but I probably wouldn’t have been able to do that and I certainly wouldn’t have wanted to do that on this film,” he said. “I’m very hands on.” Ball, also a UVic grad, was enthused to cast fellow UVic alumnus, Piggford – someone well-equipped to tackle the physical demands of the role with a solid background in theatre and dance. “She has a tremendous attitude about the work and takes it very seriously,” said Ball, who despite showing allegiance to his hometown cohort, auditioned Piggford twice for two iterations of the project.

Saanich history tour highlights the Gorge Natalie North News staff

The Gorge was once Victoria’s playground, a place where folks would converge to take in the regattas and vaudeville shows, to swim for the day or dance the night away. From 1890 to 1930 it was a social hub of the city. Those days are long gone. This year is a landmark year for Victoria and Esquimalt, with each celebrating their 150th and 100th anniversaries, respectively, and six years since Saanich celebrated its centennial anniversary. The Gorge, the common border between the municipalities, has been the focus of a push from local community groups to get locals back out there swimming in the waterway again. It’s also been the focus of one historian’s research for the last 20 years.

“The Gorge’s history is probably the most colourful you’ll find anywhere in Victoria,” said Dennis Minaker, author and resident of the Gorge-Tillicum neighbourhood. “It’s quite remarkable, actually.” That colourful history spans from the early farmlands of the Craigflower area and all along the inlet, where the Royal Navy regularly hosted regatta events. “It became the centre for outdoor recreation, and that included swimming, boating, picnicking, camping – and the centre for some of the grandest houses ever built in Victoria,” Minaker added. Those houses, built along Gorge shorelines in all three municipalities in the latter part of the 19th century, have all but disappeared, as did the amusement park and Japanese tea gardens that

once lined the waterway. But tales from the day remain and Minaker, author of The Gorge of Summers Gone, is just the guy to tell them. Minaker hosts the annual Saanich Heritage Bus Tour & Tea on Sunday Sept. 16 from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. This year’s tour highlights the Gorge Waterway, including a stop at the Naval & Maritime Museum at CFB Esquimalt and afternoon tea at the historic St. Paul’s Garrison Church. Tickets to the event, which sells out annually, went on sale today for $30 plus tax. Register in person or by phone at any Saanich recreation centre or online at recreation.saanich.ca (course code 492204). For information contact Saanich Archives at 250475-1775 ext. 3477 or email archives@saanich.ca. nnorth@saanichnews.com

This archival photo shows a regatta on the Gorge from around 1916, when the waterway was the recreation and athletic centre of the community.

Car pull raises $26K for Tour de Rock Kyle Slavin News staff

It took 11 hours, and a ton of emotional support, but Kevin Nunn successfully pulled a 2,530-pound Mini Cooper around the University of Victoria 12 times on Sunday. Twenty-one kilometres later, and Nunn, quartermaster for the Saanich police, was feeling the pain. "I’m very heavy, very stiff," he said Monday morning. "But it was worth every ounce of effort. When you think about it, by the end of the week I’ll be feeling great. These kids going through their cancer treatments, they go for months and years in pain." Nunn set a $25,000 fundraising goal for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, and broke it even before he began the car pull at 6 a.m. By Monday his total was at $26,500, and counting. In 2011, the 49-year-old ran 60 kilometres from Duncan to Victoria, raising $14,000 for Tour de Rock. While next year he hopes to be one of the Tour riders, Nunn said he’s already concocting his next crazy fundraising idea. All the money he raises will be split among the three Saanich police officers riding in this year’s Tour: Niki Hodgkinson, Jett Junio and Jana Sawyer. To donate to Nunn, visit kevin4cancer.ca.

Medical marijuana club hit with $2.5M tax bill Daniel Palmer

ESQUIMALT–JUAN DE FUCA We’re here to help constituents with Federal government programs and services.

“Honestly, I’m just happy I’m not going to jail.”

News staff

A Victoria medicinal marijuana club is being forced to pay $150,000 in backdated taxes on its estimated $2.5 million in annual sales. Canada Revenue Agency began investigating the Cannabis Buyers’ Club of Canada and owner Leon “Ted” Smith in early May, after he admitted in a B.C. Supreme Court case that he had not been paying taxes or employee deductions. “Honestly, I’m just happy I’m not going to jail,” said Smith, who has operated the club for 16 years in Victoria. “In a way, this is kind of a step towards legitimacy for us.” Smith won the court case in April, which struck down a section of federal regulations that made the sale of edible marijuana and other products to medicinal users illegal. As part of his evidence, he admitted the club had been avoiding tax payments. “The police actually took that judgement to the CRA and they started investigating me from

Longtime marijuana advocate Leon “Ted” Smith admits he failed to pay taxes on products sold at his Cannabis Buyers’ Club of Canada shop in Victoria. there,” Smith said, adding he will pay the tax bill out of his own pocket and separate himself from future club business. “I’m going to be left with this mortgage-like debt, but the club’s not going to be affected,” he said.

Smith is currently in the final stages of appointing a board of directors with the intention of converting the club into a nonprofit society. Two committees on incorporation and finance are already working to ensure the new organization operates completely within the law, Smith added. “We’ll be a lot more transparent, a lot more accountable. It’s a step we’ve been looking to do for a long time,” he said. “I can live with a $150,000 debt. But I haven’t done anything criminal here at all, I’ve just not been in compliance.” Smith hopes to use some proceeds from his recently published book, Hempology 101: The History and Uses of Cannibis Sativa, to help pay his tax bill. dpalmer@vicnews.com

“There’s too much unknown about the implications. And a few studies in the last year suggested there may be some risk. … But there isn’t a lot of scientific evidence either way to suggest there is or isn’t a risk,” Murdock said. “The flip side of this, through genetic modification and genetic engineering, in some cases food has become cheaper, more accessible, and easier to produce.” Earlier this year councillors in the City of Richmond endorsed a resolution opposing the cultivation of genetically engineered plants and trees. Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie told the Richmond Review that municipal governments don’t have much jurisdiction on the matter. “The city does not have the enforcement powers here. So it is a statement of our intention of our consideration of the matter,” Brodie said. Murdock acknowledged Saanich would be in the same position, should it support a ban. He added, however, that local government has a say. “We’re simply saying, ‘this is an issue our residents have expressed concerns about,’” he said. “It’s not our intention to step into an arena where we have no authority.” Anyone interested speaking prior to Saanich making a decision is invited to the Oct. 10, 7 p.m. meeting at Saanich council chambers, 730 Vernon Ave. Speakers are asked to register in advance by calling 250-475-1775 or emailing clerksec@saanich. ca.

Poultry found stuffed into children’s shoes at beach Kyle Slavin News staff

Victoria police detectives say the “meat-like substance” stuck in multiple kids’ shoes planted at Clover Point two weeks ago has been determined to be poultry. Three baby and toddler shoes were found Thursday, Aug. 30 on the beach off Dallas Road with the raw meat and bone placed inside. Det. Const. Lori Beauvais, with the department’s major crimes unit, said the initial discovery that lead investigators to the beach had police convinced what was inside the kids’ shoes was human. “We didn’t know until later (Thursday) night that we could be dealing with anything other than human remains,” she said. “The laces (on the first shoe), at the time, were pulled tight, and it really did look like human remains.” Beauvais put five shoes on display at Clover Point Thursday (Sept. 6), three of which were found with poultry inside. A fourth shoe, found empty, was the match to the first shoe, and a fifth shoe, also empty, was found near one of the other meat-filled shoes.

Victoria police detective Lori Beauvais looks over one of a pair of shoes that were found stuffed with bone and meat on the beach at Clover Point. Police want to find those responsible for the hoax. Don Denton/News staff

“This is an abhorrent activity, or in this case it’s a criminal investigation,” Beauvais said. “They were purposefully set to be found, they were structured in a way that really looked human-like, and it was disturbing, and it was sad to think that, if it was authentic, this could be the remains of a small child.” Police are now asking for the public’s help in identifying the shoes. Of particular interest to Beauvais is the matching pair: a toddler size 8 set of purple and beige Bum Kids shoes, with a purple, white and beige-striped cuff, and purple laces. Detectives believe the shoes were placed on the beach, 100 metres east and west of Clover

Point, in the afternoon of Aug. 30. The first shoe was found at 4:30 p.m. “I absolutely believe there is a connection between all of them. … I’m able to establish a time line and we feel that these were probably dropped off within an hour of when this (first) one was located,” Beauvais said. “I think they were all placed there at the same time.” Detectives are investigating the case as public mischief. Conviction of public mischief charges carries up to a five-year prison sentence. Police are asking anyone with information on the shoes or the hoax to call VicPD at 250-9957444 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-

Ramsay Murray is a man on a mission. The 86-year-old wanted to see the Patrica Bay Airfield and more than 80 other wartime airfields constructed under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan designated as national historic civil engineering sites. Last Friday, he got his wish, as the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering – Murray is a member of its national history committee – unveiled a plaque at the B.C. Aviation Museum commemorating the military start of what is now the Victoria International Airport. Completed in 1939, just in time to begin training air personnel for wartime duty, and to serve as an operational patrol unit watching for submarines off Vancouver Island and B.C.’s North Coast, Pat Bay became the country’s third-largest military airfield and the main airbase on the Pacific Coast during the Second World War. By the war’s end, 7,000 personnel trained or were stationed there. The south Island project, planned well before war was declared, was a

ing an airport was floated. The Lansdowne civilian airfield, on the current site of that middle school’s playing fields, had been shut down in 1933 after four years in operation, and proponents wanted to find a similar close-to-town location. But before a site could be agreed upon, the Canadian military took over the discussion. “They wanted something in the Pacific, with tensions growing,� said B.C. Aviation Museum librarian Doug Rollins. “The closest place they could find that suited their needs of both open land and a harbour was at Pat Bay.� With the outbreak of war in the Pacific, the site became strategic, both as a training and patrol base, and a staging area for aircraft carrying on to Alaska and Russia. In fact, very few civilian aircraft were allowed on the runways, Rollins said, the exception being the odd Trans-Canada Airlines plane. The Pat Bay facility was unique for its combination as a land and maritime air base, unlike Vancouver, where they were separate.

Filmmaker expands from visual effects Continued from Page A1

Frost is intended as a fairly straight-forward adventure narrative, Ball said. “On a thematic level, I think it’s about legacy and how the things that we leave behind form the pathways for future generations, and also the importance of being able to not only see those, but go beyond them or transgress those things.” Ball hopes to expand on those themes as he continues to develop the concept into a featurelength screenplay. “Part of doing this is to show what is possible without going outside of Canada for resources,” he said. “A lot of people who have seen plans for the future have suggested it’s more of a Hollywood-style production, but we’ll see. Maybe the short will change peoples’ minds.” Much of Ball’s so-called Hollywood visual effects work (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Rise of the Planet of the Apes) has been conducted in South Africa, the Ukraine and China, where he lived for many years. He’d like to believe Cana-

dian filmmakers will be able to one day stay within Canada and pursue a successful career in the industry. His content, however, will remain universal. “I’m interested in stories that cross cultural boundaries,” Ball said. “I’m interested in stories that have a universal or global appeal. I’m not interested in getting pigeon-holed in a particular genre of filmmaking, but I do like things that are innovative in terms of the way of telling stories or the kinds of stories being told.” University of Victoria graduate student Connor Gaston was also accepted to the festival this year with his short film Bardo Light, which he produced last year while pursuing his undergraduate degree in the university’s writing department.

Tax on medical pot no joke for users

W

hen a club that sells medical marijuana completely spaces out on paying $150,000 in income taxes, stoner jokes aren’t far behind. But for the thousands of people who use marijuana to ease chronic pain from illness and side effects of legal medication, the possibility of losing ready access to medical pot doesn’t bring out the giggles. Leon “Ted” Smith and his Victoria-based Cannabis Buyers’ Club of Canada has sold marijuana products for 16 years to thousands of people who can prove they have certain permanent diseases or chronic ailment. Smith admits in the media and on his website that he’s avoided paying taxes to the Canada Revenue Agency for years and wrote: “(I) assumed I would end up in jail for it.” This kind of sloppy bookkeeping does little to improve the public image of selling or using medical marijuana. Hopefully this won’t undo the good work Smith has done helping suffering people and challenging ethically-dubious laws that snares marijuana in a grey area of legality. Indeed, among the number of court cases involving Smith and the CBCC, this year a trial involving the CBCC’s head baker had restrictive parts of federal medical marijuana law deemed unconstitutional. This is typical of laws that try to have it both ways. Health Canada allows people to purchase and/or grow marijuana for medical purposes, which is a tacit admission that marijuana can help some sick people – while the agency discourages its use. Doctors in B.C. can prescribe marijuana, but the doctors’ college discourages that due to legal liability and a lack of scientific studies. Sick people having some access to pot is better than none, but inconsistent messages from health authorities and the federal government opens the door for advocates such as Smith to operate businesses that are effectively illegal. As Smith noted, out of his tax troubles the club will become a non-profit, run by a board. This is good news for the many legitimate pot users in this city who don’t have to risk the dangers of buying from dealers on the street. What do you think?

with marijuana grow ops, “local governments have little or no authority to enforce compliance with health and safety standards when a building is owner occupied.” Another First World problem is the “pocket dialing” of 9-1-1 by mobile phones. This is more than just a nuisance, because local emergency services are obliged to respond to every call they get. And mobile phones can’t be traced to their location with any precision, creating time-consuming searches that weaken response to real emergencies. Other resolutions tackle complex and important issues, such as the effect of hydro development on municipal water supplies. But alas, most will be lost in the convention noise, overshadowed by political posturing over matters best left alone. Last year’s convention featured the low comedy of delegates voting with wireless devices to condemn smart meters, after displaying their ignorance of the subject. This year, in addition to factually challenged railing about oil tankers, there will be a tough stance taken against shark fin soup, which will no doubt strike fear into the Chinese fishing fleet. Once delegates vote themselves more taxpayers’ money to run this show, perhaps they should keep their grandstanding to a minimum. –Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Food bank use shows we need tax equality Re: Think about others for a moment (Postscript, Aug. 31) I remember a time in Victoria when there were no food banks, but due to changing taxation policy and unmet cost of living increases, temporary food banks began to appear. With dismay I noted that permanence set in when the provincial government saw that churches and community groups would attempt to make up the difference when employment insurance and welfare rates didn’t match rising costs for basic needs, and more and more people were “becoming poor.”

Immigration not helping the economy Canada’s immigration needs are different from what they were 120 years ago. We do not need a lot of immigrants to farm the prairies and build roads today. Dumping 250,000 foreigners into the labour market a year is not helping the economy and is straining our housing market. The solution is obvious: reduce immigration. I recommend about 15,000 immigrants a year, primarily nurses and doctors. Sean Murray Victoria

Any and all upgrades cost taxpayers money Sewage treatment, light rapid transit, E&N railway and now bicycle infrastructure equal lots of dollars. Why we get excited when senior levels of government (read other taxpayers) are going to pitch in, I don’t understand. It’s still going to have a huge impact on not only property taxes, but any tax they can increase or new fee they can create, like bicycle licensing, maybe? Bicycling is last form of transportation with no taxes, except the HST on the purchase, and in doing so would create a real disincentive to riding a bike. Not mentioned much is annual maintenance costs that will increase year over year. New parks, new planter boxes in the middle of the roads, new recreation and cultural centres, as nice as they are, come with increasingly expensive annual operating costs. And all these new projects are going to increase it substantially. Present and future taxpayers are going to be hit hard. Property owners

At the same time, the working poor were subjected to heavy tax rates in comparison to tax advantages being extended to the most wealthy. It is the same across North America, where the gap between the most impoverished and most affluent has grown to a shocking degree, largely as a result of growing corporate power. Yes, we should contribute to food banks if we are able - the need is

there. Yes also, we must return public policy to the previously humane degree of equality, by ceasing to starve government funding via unfair tax rates. Corporations and wealthy individuals should indeed “pay their fair share” so that less fortunate children, seniors, and jobless adults in this well-to-do country need not go hungry. Whether one’s motives are Christian, humanitarian, or any number of other sources, it is a disgrace to leave things as they are. Connie Foss More Saanich

won’t be the only ones affected. Renters will be too. The government will have to allow landlords to raise rents to offset the extraordinary increase in taxes over and above the present rate, otherwise it won’t be worth being a landlord. Take a look around. You can’t go anywhere, where the roads aren’t cracked, pot-holed and in some places crumbling, and they want to build a 21st century state of the art everything else.

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

CRD website project burdens taxpayers

Oil spill math doesn’t give confidence in Enbridge

More than $287,000 for the Capital Regional District to update its website. This is nonsense. You mean to tell me the over-paid CRD staff can’t do this in-house, with the insane amount of money we already grant it? Please disband this unneeded, unloved, unwanted CRD and the Vancouver Island Health Authority and give us some governance. Robert Nicholas View Royal

Enbridge has been advertising across the country its record over the past 10 years. I have had a good chuckle as to the way Enbridge oils its way around its figures. I quote their figures that in the last 10 years 12 billion barrels were shipped with a safe delivery at 99.999 per cent. Lets look at the .001 percent that was not shipped safely. Calculating .001 per cent of 12 billion equals 120,000 barrels. A barrel has 159 litres. So Enbridge is really saying that over the last 10 years they have lost 120,000 x 159 litres of oil, which is more than 1.9 million litres. Can we trust that their record through the Rockies as compared to the flat lands of Alberta will be 100 per cent free of an oil spill? Derek Rennie Saanich

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. The B.C. Liberals have certainly not been called to proper account on this issue. Forget about the union angle; this

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

How well does your child see? Parents are often surprised when I tell them that children should have their eyes examined around their third birthday. At this age however, many problems can be detected and timely treatment started. If an infant or toddler has an obvious problem, the parents should not hesitate to have the child’s eyes examined even earlier. Children with vision problems may not complain. Blurred or double vision can seem normal if one has never known anything else. Sometimes a child may only be using one eye with the other not functioning properly; even though it appears to be normal. An eye may be “lazy” (amblyopic) even if it doesn’t seem to turn in or out. Treatment for amblyopia is far more effective if undertaken well before the child’s seventh birthday. Parents can watch out for signs of vision problems even in very young children: Rubbing the eyes, holding objects too close, tilting the head or an unusual lack of coordination are some of the warning symptoms. Children do not need to know the alphabet to be examined. Optometrists can use pictures, symbols and toys to help examine toddlers. The emphasis is usually on “fast and fun” in these cases. After the initial visit, annual checks are recommended as children’s eyes change as they grow. Here in British Columbia, a program for preschool children called “Vision First Check” has just started. Ask your optometrist for further details and set up appointments for any children who have not had a recent examination.

nique amenities can be a selling feature for real estate properties, a fact Burnabybased Bosa Properties has taken to heart for its Promontory at Bayview Place development. Purchasers of the yet-to-be-built condominium project in Vic West have the option of having an electric vehicle charging station installed in their underground parking space before they move in. The program, known as BosaVolt, is being instituted in all of the company’s new projects in British Columbia, a first for North America. “Despite local and provincial governments’ push towards environmental sustainability, and despite the fact that British Columbian companies are emerging as leaders in green innovation, without the accompanying infrastructure to support green initiatives it is impossible for individuals to embrace the new technologies,” said Bosa senior vicepresident Daryl Simpson. The company, which is looking at installing 220-volt chargers – they take four to six hours to fully charge a vehicle – hopes to spur other developers into following suit. For information on Promontory or BosaVolt, visit bosaproperties.com/ promontory.

Designers tackle custom chair project Eleven local furniture designers are putting their best creative feet forward to raise money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Business goings-on around and about town Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Bosa Properties marketing and development associate Rob Elliott plugs in a BosaVolt charger to a vehicle at the Promontory Bayview Place building site in Vic West. Lûxe Home Interiors has initiated the Pink Chair-ity fundraiser, in which designers create a unique chair in honour of someone who has had breast cancer. The chairs will ultimately be placed on display in the Luxe showroom at 2655 Douglas St. throughout October. On Oct. 26 the chairs will be auctioned off at a gala event with all funds brought in going to the cause. For more information and a list of the participating designers, visit yourstyleyourway.ca/luxe-connects/ pink-chairity or call 250-386-7632.

Highland Pacific hosts summer fundraiser Applications for the first Golf to Conquer Cancer cross-Canada day of golf are being accepted at Highland Pacific Golf. The 2013 event, slated for next July 25, will see thousands of golfers play in four-person teams, using a maximum of four clubs each, under a Texas scramble format. Players are required to raise at least $360 for the cause. For more information, drop by Highland Pacific at 450 Creed Rd. or

Victoria police seek victim of violent mugging attempt Witnesses hold suspect; woman flees the scene

UP TO

Other witnesses held the suspect down and waited for police, but the victim, along with a friend, and the intervening Good Samaritan, left before officers arrived. “Investigators now to want to find the victim of the robbery to ensure she is OK and to assist in the case against the suspect,” Russell wrote in a press release. The victim is described as an Asian woman in her late teens or early 20s, five feet tall with long black hair. She was wearing a black cardigan and black pants, and was carrying a beige purse. The suspect, a 33-year-old Victoria man, faces one count of robbery related to the incident. Police say he was also wanted on two outstanding warrants for assault and uttering threats. Police are asking anyone with information on the victim to contact Const. Rob Horne at 250-9957654 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Kyle Slavin News staff

Police have their suspect, but they don’t have their victim after a violent robbery in downtown Victoria last Friday morning. Victoria police officers responded to the 1300block of Douglas St. around 10:30 a.m. when witnesses reported seeing a man shove a woman head-first into a wall, then attempt to steal her purse. A passerby intervened and stopped the robbery in progress. “We don’t have all the details yet, but witnesses say that he actually physically intervened, grabbed this guy, and our information is that he threw him to the ground,” said Const. Mike Russell. “We’re not sure if there was a struggle or a fight before.”

Hotel employee nabbed for fraud Kyle Slavin News staff

A former Victoria hotel employee is facing fraud charges after nearly $42,000 worth of unusual transactions on the hotel’s dime were traced to her personal bank account. The 28-year-old Victoria woman worked as a financial controller for an undisclosed downtown hotel, and allegedly diverted $41,495 to her account over a 13-month period beginning in May 2010. In total, Victoria police say the fraud involved 40 transactions involving “unusual and high-dollar refunds.” Even after the fraudulent transactions were detected, police said the woman accessed the hotel’s accounts remotely and made additional withdrawals. Stephanie Andrews was arrested on July 24 and faces one charge of fraud over $5,000. A web search indicates a Stephanie Andrews worked for The Magnolia Hotel on Courtney Street. The Magnolia hotel, would not confirm if it was the hotel involved.

Manifestation of a dream Rifflandia V brings big names, personal triumphs and Grimace tattoos Natalie North News staff

A slender man donning hornrimmed glasses, a Selleck-ian moustache and a sport coat approaches a tattoo bench at Wolf/Sheep Arthouse on Government Street and unzips. “For 10 entire years, I’ve said I’d get Grimace, the McDonaldland character, tattooed on my buttock if anyone else would pay and today, on this monumental evening, it’s happening,” says Chris Vickers, the man boasting his lillywhite gams. “How do we start? I’ve never had a tattoo before.” “Well we’re going to lie you down, put a stencil on your butt and just drill ‘er in there,” says the tattoo artist who will soon be tasked with shaving this man’s posterior in advance of the big moment. “Just drill ‘er in,” Vickers says and his decade-long creative vision is made reality.

There is nothing fictional about the danger involved in author Don Easton’s past. Easton retired from the RCMP in 1995 after 20 years of service, mainly as an undercover officer. At several points in his career Easton had contracts out on his life by criminal organizations. He witnessed murders and made tough calls in the line of duty that sometimes resulted in criminals getting murdered. Easton started writing novels in his retirement as a way to show people what undercover work is really like, something he feels is missing from most depictions of law enforcement. “I didn’t read novels much before I started writing them, generally because I found them too phoney,” said Easton, who lives in Colwood. “I’ve seen it too much first hand to be reading somebody’s idea of what it is.” His sixth novel, Birds of a Feather, is close to how

up with an American customs agent under investigation for murder, a revenge killing for the murder of his partner. The other aspect of the novel is its depiction of Mexico as a dangerous place, due to the drug trade. He won’t holiday in Mexico and hopes the book educates people on the situation there. “I think it’s gotten worse. A lot of shootings now. The cartels have gotten stronger, they’re at war with each other,” Easton said. “I think a lot of Canadians are really naive about that.” Easton has a seventh book finished, Corporate Asset, and accepted by his publisher, and another nearing completion. He has also been in talks with a producer in Toronto about turning the books into a movie and TV series. He doesn’t know if it’s going to go ahead, but the books have been optioned, which is the first step. Easton will sign books at SmithBooks at Tillicum mall Centre 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 14. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

They’re back, they’re bigger Rams football ranked No. 4 in Canada Travis Paterson News staff

The Mount Douglas Rams are hoping to come back big bigger and stronger after winning the provincial AAA football championship. If anyone can do it, it’s these guys. “We want to win it again but everybody knows about us now, we’re not under the radar,” said running back Mason Swift. The key to the Rams success is no secret. Last year Swift and Terrell Davis formed a deadly attack out of the backfield. Once Swift recovered from injury for the final stretch of the season, the opposition couldn’t stop the Rams running game. This year should be similar. Substitute Terrell, who has moved on to the NCAA’s Arizona Sun Devils, for younger brother Marcus Davis (Grade 11). Swift is returning for his Grade 12 season while being scouted by NCAA Div. 1 teams, and quarterback Ashton MacKinnon (Grade 11) is also ready to break out. And they’re all tucked away, ready to explode from behind an offensive line comparable in size to Mount Doug itself. “It’s such a huge line,” Swift said. “It’s going to be a different style of play from last year, and not having

Terrell will put a bit more of the load on my shoulders, but it shouldn’t be too different.” Man-mountain Christian Krause (Grade 11), at 6-foot-4, 320 lbs., leads an offensive line with six players over 235 lbs each, plus another three to draw on, of which Sasha Shurvin is the smallest at 6-foot-3, 190 lbs. Not to mention MacKinnon, who at 6-foot-6, 200 lbs, will have no problem seeing over them. As the starting junior quarterback last season, the Grade 11 also dressed for most of the senior games, including Travis Paterson/News staff the Subway Bowl AAA final, in which the Rams overcame a Quarterback Ashton MacKinnon and running back Mason Swift are ready to lead the Mount 22-point deficit to defeat the Doug Rams to another AAA football championship.

Wolves howl to first win VIJHL hockey Travis Paterson News staff

A single goal is all the Westshore Wolves needed to win its first game in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League last week. The Wolves shutout the Kerry Park Islanders 1-0 on a goal by Clay Carson, the first ever for the franchise. “It was nice to start it off like that,” said captain Josh Bloomenthal, formerly of the Peninsula Panthers. “We’re confident, we like the core we have, and we’ve still got a few more pieces coming. I can’t say enough good things about (coach-GM) Vic Gervais.” On Sunday the Wolves faced its first major test, the
