Highlands seeks more time to spend cash Charla Huber News staff

The clock is ticking for Highlands to build a community hall. All of the pieces are falling into place, but council hopes to get a time extension when it comes to using the $400,000 provincial

grant. The district was awarded the grant through the Towns for Tommorrow in 2008 and it expires March 31, 2013. “We are looming very close and there is not a lot of time,” said district administrator Chris Coates. Highlands council requested a *

meeting with the minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development to ask for an extension. A meeting date has not been granted at this time. The conceptual designs of the hall are complete and the district is in the process of finishing a detailed design. At that point

Highlands will send the project to tender. It has been estimated the project will cost between $800,000 and $850,000. Highlands has currently budgeted $710,000 including the grant money. Once the project goes to tender, Highlands will have a more accurate figure to work with, said

POLICE NEWS IN BRIEF

Veggies take centre stage

Fall witnesses call for help West Shore RCMP are recommending anyone having emotional difficulties after witnessing the 82-year-old woman fall from the Millstream Road overpass on Sunday, Sept. 9 to call Victim Services 250995-7351. “This situation was a very traumatic incident for people that witnessed it,” Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz said. RCMP have completed their investigation on the incident and are confident no foul play was involved.

Event encourages growing your own food Kyle Wells News staff

Ogling onions and leering at leeks is encouraged at the View Royal Garden Club Flower and Vegetable Show this weekend. This year the focus of the show is fruit and vegetables, and encouraging people to grow their own. Tables filled with vegetables, fruit and flowers will be spread throughout a room at Shoreline Community School (2750 Shoreline Dr.) and the public is welcome to come take a look from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15. “Hopefully they’ll come out and see the show and they’ll be inspired and want to start their own (garden),” publicity co-ordinator Bonnie Bacica said. For participants the show is also a competition and before the public comes in, while the place is nice and quiet, the horticultural judges move in to choose the best examples in a variety of categories for fruits, veggies and herbs. “I quite enjoy myself having my exhibits judged because you always learn something,” Bacica said. Flowers are certainly not being forgotten this year and will still be a central part of the show. There will be awards for potted plants, roses, annuals, shrubs, trees, vines, perennials and more. There are also junior categories for young growers. The garden club hopes to attract more young members as its current membership ages. “I do encourage younger people to come in,” Bacica said. “It’s hard because families are busy. The idea is to encourage them to grow even just a very small garden.” One table will also feature home baking and garden items for sale. The club typically holds three shows a year, although there will only be two this year. There are meetings on the fourth Thursday of every month except for July and December. Meetings feature a speaker on a specific topic and minishows for members. Admission to the show is $5 and includes door prizes and refreshments. For more information on the club visit viewroyalgardenclub.wordpress.com. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Pane removed in cash theft Police are investigating a break and enter into a business in the 300 block of Goldstream Avenue. At about 2 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8 suspects removed a pane of glass from a door to the business and stole an undisclosed amount of cash. Police figure it would have taken some time for the pane of glass to be removed and are asking anyone who saw anything to call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264.

RCMP seek help in forest fire investigations Kyle Wells News staff

Forest fires continue to plague the West Shore. A suspicious fire broke out in Highlands on Thursday, Sept. 6 at about 11:30 p.m. near Millstream Lake Road and Munns Road. An RCMP officer arrived first and saw flames in the woods. He used his fire extinguisher on the blaze, which slowed it down until the Highlands Volunteer Fire

Department arrived. Police came to the area because a resident called West Shore RCMP to report a man who had come to their door asking for water to put out a fire. The man filled up a twolitre bottle with water and then drove away. RCMP would like to speak to the man who came to the resident’s door. Anyone with information on the man or the fire is also asked to call. The man is in his 20s or early

30s, over six feet tall, polite and well spoken, clean shaven, strong jaw and with dark hair. He was driving a black vehicle and may have had a passenger with him. “The actions of our resident, contacting police and starting to get the ball rolling, did a fantastic job because we were able to have a quick response to that fire which didn’t endanger any homes or any people,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz, RCMP also attended a small

brush fire in Metchosin on Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 8 p.m. in the 4400-block of Lindholm Rd. Police helped Metchosin Volunteer Fire Department with traffic control as firefighters fought the blaze on the side of the road. RCMP are asking everyone to be careful in the dry conditions. “Fires can make a significant impact in our community. They cause a lot of time and energy to fight and we would rather prevent them than to see them actually

happen,” Rochlitz said. “We want to remind people to be careful, discard cigarettes in the appropriate place, because it can endanger lives very, very quickly.” The West Shore is under a ban on all open burning. Campfires are permitted. Anybody with information on recent forest fires is asked to call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS (8477). kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

This ‘for sale’ sign caused some confusion and panic among West Shore residents who thought Jasmine Family Restaurant might be closing. It’s not, only the building and land are for sale with a lease still in place.

Jasmine restaurant not for sale, owner Misleading sign confuses loyal diner patrons Kyle Wells News staff

Devotees of Jasmine Family Restaurant on Island Highway in Colwood had a scare over the Labour Day weekend when a “for sale” sign appeared in front of the beloved diner. The owners of the restaurant assure the public the restaurant is not for sale or closing. The building and land is for sale but the restaurant still has a lease in place. The placement and somewhat confusing nature of the “for sale” sign came as the result of a misunderstanding with the landlord. “We’re not going out of business, we’re not selling,” owner Judy Wong said. “We’re still here and people should not panic.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Parents on lice alert Sharron Ho and Charla Huber News staff

School District 62 is slowly moving away from performing regular lice checks in schools, putting the onus on parents to spot the critters. A committee -- consisting of school administration, members of the parent’s association and a representative from the Vancouver Island Health Authority -- has created a draft plan for a district-wide head lice procedure that will encourage parents to perform weekly lice checks on their children as a preventive measure. According to assistant superintendent, Roberta Kubik, the procedure is expected to be finalized and moved forward this month. “We’ve always had procedures in place, but we wanted to get it more formalized so it’s going to be an administrative procedure. It was put in its draft form just at the end of June, and we’ll be working to bring that out as an official procedure,” she said. “It’ll happen this month.” Kubik said the procedure, which is based on extensive research, will work on educating parents, staff and students on head lice facts, the life cycle of head lice, what to do if head lice are found, how to perform a lice check, treatment and confidentiality. Lice high seasons will also be stressed, which include the beginning of the school year, after Christmas break and spring break. “Research says the best way is to educate family and the community, so parents can get into the rhythm of checking their child’s head at home where it’s… socially and emotionally safe for the child,” she said. “We’re spending a lot of time educating parents and families and schools and more getting away from the approach of an actual team going into a classroom.” At Happy Valley elementary school in Langford, it’s been years since the school has done school-wide lice checks. “If we see a child in discomfort or scratching we check them discretely,” said principal Julia Sahota.

Charla Huber/News staff

The Sooke School District is phasing out school-wide lice checks. The schools will be providing lice information and combs to families who need them.

Did you know? The most effective method of lice detection is the “wet comb” where a child’s head is lathered in conditioner and carefully combed.

If lice are found on the child the school informs the parents and sends out a letter to all the parents in the class. If multiple children in various classrooms are found with lice then a school-wide notice goes out. “Lice is a social thing, just like a cold,” Sahota said. “We do confidential checks if we need to. Kids play pretty close at school.”

In addition to providing information, the school district has supplied about 50 Bug Buster combs -- purportedly the best on the market -- to each school. The combs will be supplied to families who require them. Charts to track dates for lice treatment will also be provided. So far, Kubik said schools are already following the unofficial

draft plan. Information is expected to be rolled out on school websites and newsletters. Kubik said the school district website will also be posting information, which will be a culmination of research and input from the district, VIHA and parents. “It’s been a really great collaboration between the senior executive staff at the school district, our principals and vice-principals, and our parent community,” she said. “We’ve come to a compromise with the school district that will allow lice checks to continue in schools if they’re done in an appropriate manner,” she said, adding one of the most important factors is eliminating the social stigma associated with lice. “Part of the procedures and policies that are being implemented is we need to let everybody know that there’s nothing wrong with having lice. It’s no different than having any other childhood disease.” Although the policy will be subject to all schools, it will be primarily for elementary schools as children are more prone to lice due to their close contact and type of play.

Housekeeping for Homeowners. Like most British Columbians, your home is likely your most precious investment, but keeping it protected with simple home maintenance often falls behind a busy lifestyle and other priorities. Yet basic home maintenance does not require a lot of specialized skills or know-how, is very cost effective and an excellent approach to protection against an unexpected crisis and costs. Here we share some important tips to keep your home and family safe. t Prevent the possibility of a fire hazard by keeping the dryer vent clean. Clean the lint filter every time you run your dryer and once a year slide the vent out and remove any lint build up. t Run an energy efficient furnace by replacing filters at least every three months, especially for proper operation over winter. Dirty filters block airflow, lowering air quality and making it potentially dangerous to your family’s health. They also cause furnaces to work overtime, increasing energy bills and eventually to overheat, burn out and be replaced. t Prevent mold by monitoring your home for condensation. Too much moisture indoors eventually poses a health risk, and left untreated will rot woodwork. Examine your windows, checking for cracks or breaks in the seals that can easily be fixed.

HOME INSURANCE WITH

MARCI-LYN BRAITHWAITE

t Guard against water damage by looking for signs of dripping and corrosion on exposed pipes around toilets, sinks and appliances. Leaking fixtures can often be fixed with simple replacement parts like O-rings, cartridges or flappers for leaky toilets. Leaks are easy to miss, but early repair avoids costly water damage. t Make sure your gutters are clean and water run-off is unobstructed. At least once a year physically remove debris and build-up from your gutters and ensure your downpipes are clear. Blocked gutters and pipes can force water to back up and soak into the roof, walls, and even the foundation. Basic upkeep of your home protects your investment and safeguards your family. And it’s easy enough to do yourself with an idea of what to look for and why.

Share the land with predators Conservation staff urge Highlands residents to stay conscious of the predators they share the district with. There has been a rise in both bear and cougar sightings in the area and residents are asked to keep livestock in barns overnight. “No livestock has been killed in Highlands for a few months now,” said conservation officer Peter Pauwels, adding livestock bordering Highlands has been killed by cougars recently. Cougars hunt at night and Pauwels suggests people take extra caution in the evening. “Children should not be out by themselves when it starts to get dark,” Pauwels said. “There have always been cougars in Highlands and there always will be. People should always be cautious.”

We’ve Moved!

Pulling the trigger wasn’t easy for Terry Sterling when a fowl-eating bear returned to his Metchosin farm. “It was the last thing I wanted to do,” Sterling said. “It was either me or someone else.” The bear bolted through the farm repeatedly for two months. The farmer’s last resort was shooting it. Sterling raises free range fowl, including chickens, duck and turkeys. In all his years farming it’s the first time he has had an issue with bears coming after the birds. “He was in good shape and he (appeared) well fed,” Sterling said of the bear. The tragic tale started in Charla Huber July, when the bear started Reporting chasing the chickens and ducks. The first time Sterling pulled his rifle was Aug. 6 when the chickens alerted him. “I’ve had chickens since I was 12, they let me know with the tempo and tone,” said the 56-yearold. “I knew a predator was there, but I thought it was a raccoon, hawk or a mink.” When Sterling saw the bear he let out a warning shot. “I shot at the bear to protect my livestock. I shot just behind him. I just wanted to scare him,” he said. The bear’s reaction worried him.

“I though he’d be out of there like ‘bam’,” Sterling said smacking his hands together. “But he didn’t gallop off; he just briskly ran off. I’ve scared bears before, this was not normal.” Sterling came home after a farmer’s market Aug. 11, to find two turkey carcasses. Aug. 26 he was up early harvesting vegetables when he heard his chickens alert him to a predator. When he saw it was the same bear, he shot it to protect the animals. “I just felt that there was no alternative,” Sterling said. Throughout the two months of bear trouble Sterling was in contact with the conservation officers. They unsuccessfully set up a bear trap on his property and nearby farms trying to capture the problem bear. A neighbour also took a shot at a bear July 8. Conservation officers told Sterling to put the chickens behind an electric fence to keep them safe. “Electric fencing is the least you can do,” said Peter Pauwels, conservation officer. “If a bear gets at taste for (chickens) then it will keep coming back for the easy pickings.” Sterling opposes the idea but, said if other bears attack his livestock he will consider either electric fencing or not raising chickens all together. Sterling knows he lives in bear country and has farmed there for 25 years. In the past five he started having incidents with a bear, but mostly over fruit trees. It was the first time – the bears attacked his animals. Since the bear was killed there have been no more bear-related incidents on his property. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

If you lived in Greater Victoria in 1996, you remember The Snowstorm. When the first flakes began to fall 15 years ago on the morning of Dec. 21, few realized that by the time the storm ended the entire region would be thrown into survival mode. The roads were closed, which meant many stores stayed shuttered, which meant too many people were left woefully unprepared. In Langford, home to 17,500 residents at the time, a decision was made to make sure the community was better prepared. The municipality organized a group of volunteers to better help residents caught up in catastrophe. “People were stranded all across the area, stranded by the snowstorm,” said Tom Burchill, a director with Langford Emergency Support Services. “Since then people have been stranded by power outages, wind storms – all sorts of natural disasters.” Among the strategies developed was a plan to store materials needed to create emergency reception centres at strategic locations across Langford. The kits are tucked away until needed and include signage and administrative materials to organize people who have been displaced by an emergency. The problem, however, is Langford is growing so quickly that new neighbourhoods are sprouting up in need of their very own reception centres. Last month, volunteers brought four large bins to Crystal View elementary school, located in a relatively new neighbourhood. Langford also has kits stored for emergency reception centres at Willway, Happy Valley, Lakewood and Spencer schools. The Eagle Ridge arena can also serve as a reception centre in event of disaster. Each centre can be quickly set up to help people who find themselves without a home. However, it’s also important for individuals to help themselves. “One of the big things I’m involved in is educating the public on emergency preparedness,” Burchill said, explaining that everyone should be prepared to make due on their own for 72 hours. People also need to plan for the unthinkable, such as a fire or flood that forces them to leave their home suddenly. Families should have an emergency bag packed and stored near an exit in case they need to grab it and run. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Any person upon being declared the successful bidder must immediately pay by cash or certified cheque a minimum of not less than the upset price. Any balance must be paid by cash or certified cheque by 3:00 p.m. the same day. The Municipality makes no representation express or implied as to the condition or quality of the properties being offered for sale. Prospective purchasers are urged to inspect the properties and make all necessary inquiries to determine the existence of any bylaws, restrictions, charges or other conditions, which may affect the value or suitability of the property. The purchase of a tax sale property is subject to tax under the Property Transfer Tax Act on the fair market value of the property. Jenn Hepting, CA Deputy Director of Finance

Gamer scores scholarship Kyle Wells News staff

To some it may seem like just a game, but for Langford teen Chase Moloney playing the PokĂŠmon card game led him to a world championship win in Hawaii and a $10,000 scholarship prize. Moloney, 15, competed at the invitation only PokĂŠmon World Championships on Hawaii’s Big Island from August 10 to 12. The Grade 10 student competed in the senior’s category, for those born between 1997 and 2001 and came out the champ. “It felt almost like a dream because I didn’t expect to do that well coming into it,â€? Moloney said. “I hadn’t been to world championships before, it felt weird being on stage and actually competing. ‌ It was pretty awesome.â€? As champion Moloney won a $10,000 scholarship, about $1,500 worth of PokĂŠmon cards and a trip to next year’s world championships in Vancouver. PokĂŠmon is a trading card

game based on a video game series that started in the 1990s. Since 2003 the cards have been published by Nintendo. In the game players use cards to have characters battle in head-tohead matches. To qualify for the worlds players need a certain amount of points in their region. Moloney took third place at the Canadian national championships in Toronto in June and took first place in a North American regional championship, securing his spot at the worlds. In Hawaii Moloney faced off against players from the U.S. and Hong Kong. The tournament starts with a number of rounds of playing to determine the top 16. From there players play against each other one-onone, first in a best of three format and then sudden death, to whittle the bracket down to a victor. It’s an old adage, but Moloney said his skill is the result of practice, practice, practice. Players build their own decks to play with and Moloney said he has

honed his deck into a championship winner. He likes to work with a deck that is easily adaptable to all kinds of situations. “I went for something that would consistently work, (and) not sometimes fall apart based on what I draw,â€? Moloney said. “Some decks will have a big advantage but a big disadvantage. No matter what I faced, there was nothing I was afraid to face.â€? Moloney started playing casually just over two years ago with friends at Pacific Christian school. Soon after he found a local league and started playing competitively. Moloney’s mother, Sherry, said that when her son started playing she never imagined the card game could take him this far. “It was surreal, it really was,â€? she said. “I had no idea. I didn’t know how big this PokĂŠmon was.â€? Next year Moloney will play in the master division, the highest level of play. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

OUR VIEW

Walking on thin ice The Canadian government has routinely been criticized for not being aggressive enough in curbing greenhouse gas emissions. Now a University of Victoria report shows Arctic permafrost is thawing and billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide, previously unaccounted for, is being released into the atmosphere, helping raise global temperatures. This news comes on the heels of a report from the National Snow and Ice Data Centre which found that the Arctic sea ice cover melted to its lowest since 1979 last month. What these two things have in common is that they are both caused by global warming – along with natural weather patterns – and both increase global warming. The warming trend in turn creates strange and devastating weather patterns including tornadoes in Brooklyn, droughts in Texas and flooding everywhere from Pakistan to Montreal. These severe weather events cause billions of dollars in damage, not to mention hundreds of thousands of deaths each year. In 2011, the cost of weather disasters worldwide was an estimated $150 billion. Scientists are now reporting that severe weather events that usually occur every 50 to 100 years are appearing in shorter cycles. Our warmer atmosphere creates heat waves, more water evaporation from the oceans adds up to heavier rainfall, rising winds occur and atmospheric chaos ensues. These dramatic weather events are another indication that global warming is real and all levels of government need to take it seriously. The federal Liberal government that agreed to the Kyoto Protocol to restrict greenhouse gas emissions, lacked the enthusiasm to meet its targets and since the Conservative takeover, the level of apathy has risen to new heights. The Harper government decided it would never meet the targets so why try? Perhaps the steady erosion of Canada’s Arctic is reason enough. As the ice and permafrost melt, and the water rises, Canada will no longer have to worry about Arctic sovereignty as there will be no Arctic land mass left to protect.

Canada’s Arctic sovereignty may be threatened

Let’s not forget Conrad Black and his inflated ego and wallet. For us, who pay their wages, the anger doesn’t come because we want to get all those goodies for ourselves, but it’s the incredible sense of entitlement from these stuffed shirts (male and female). What makes people angry is that our taxes keep going up and our quality of life keeps going down, not even keeping up with the rate of inflation. Those who milk the system should be exposed and no public entity should hire them if they are caught with their hands in the public purse. But they do go on and land new jobs and double dip if they can. Their sense of entitlement remains. They have lost touch with what it is like for the average working stiff. They are above it all. This is exactly why countries like Greece, Italy and Spain are faltering and failing economically. Their civil service is bloated and it is exploding. Civil servants there believe they have a right to a job for life once they get into the employ of the government. The scary thing is it could easily happen here.

LETTERS After 44 years here, deer are the intruders Please, whoever is in a position to do it – please relieve us of the four-legged pests that are causing so much pain to the region’s gardeners and farmers. When we moved into our Saanich home 44 years ago, we were in a semi-rural area with horse pastures and greenhouses all around. There were no deer. We prepared an area for a vegetable garden and were successful in raising delicious produce. For nearly forty years we were free of deer. One morning this week there were four of them in our yard, munching on the new growth on the raspberry canes. And note that our neighbourhood is no longer rural. To those who would argue that the deer were here first I boldly proclaim that they were not here for the first 40 years of our residency. They are intruders. Please, do something to get rid of them.

Columnist wades deep into manure Re: Separating oil from manure (B.C. Views, Sept. 5) Thanks Tom Fletcher for another well-researched column about oil and manure. Surely, the merits of the refinery talk have advanced the debate over the Enbridge pipeline. In one simple way, the debate continues to advance deeper into the manure. Your global studies from nearly a decade ago, Andrew Weaver’s omniscient greenhouse gas theory regarding coal versus oil, and your CERA report on where fossil fuel emissions come from all fail to address the one truth that you mistakenly added to your article: “It’s not tankers and pipelines doing most of the polluting, it’s you and me.” Indeed, you and I are doing the polluting. The serious debaters here know this and that is the main point of contention. Since all of us seem unable to curtail our wasteful and stupendous exploitation of archaic energy sources then why continue to facilitate them? We dictate regulatory controls over “hard” drug use and many other social ills, and now some of us are wanting to put ourselves in rehab. It seems promoters such as yourself want to literally pipeline this product to new, larger and currently less-

addicted part of the globe. I have little doubt that you will succeed; I have a lot of hope that you won’t. Ryan Gisler Victoria

Privatization should lower liquor costs Re: Rationale still unclear for liquor privatization (Letters, Sept. 7) While working as a consultant on an engagement with the B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch in 1991, I had discussions about privatization with the BCLDB’s executive director. I was commissioned to investigate ways for the BCLDB to become more efficient in their role in the supply chain from importation to delivery of liquor to bars and retail outlets in the province. What became apparent immediately was that the government-run facility was adding little to no value while operating less efficiently and at a higher cost than private companies that specialize in warehousing and distribution. The hefty income that liquor sales provides to B.C. coffers, referred to by letter-writer Pat McGuire, comes from taxation, and it would continue to be payable to the province after privatization. The operational savings from lower warehousing and distribution costs after privatization would, in theory, be passed on to consumers. I was advised at the time that the idea of privatization was a non-starter due to the complications of dealing with a unionized workforce. If the government has finally found the political will to privatize liquor distribution while retaining its role as policy setter and tax collector, then we should expect improved service levels and lower costs from a supply chain managed by professionals. Robert Waters Victoria

Political raises should have more oversight To quote Premier Christy Clark: “I am not going back to taxpayers for more money in order to give government workers a raise. We are in very tough economic times and we have to balance our budget.” The sanctimonious tone of the Premier’s statement is mind-boggling. If she is so concerned about going back to taxpayers for a pay raise for government workers, why doesn’t she express those same sentiments when the politicians vote themselves a substantial wage

increase whenever they like? They don’t even have to justify it to anyone, least of all the taxpayers, who are paying for them. Have they ever voted to not to give themselves a raise? That would make a dent in helping to balance the budget. They should be ashamed that they continue to vote themselves raises, regardless of tough economic times, while denying others. But, unfortunately, I don’t think they are capable of feeling shame. The practice of voting themselves raises needs to be abolished. They are civil servants and should not have this power, with no oversight or justification. This is a practice that is long overdue for change. Why isn’t someone calling for this to be done, if only in the name of fairness, if nothing else? Just last week I read about the Legislative Clerk (supposedly a consultant) in their employ and no one could say exactly what his job was. Where was his job description? But no, they admit to paying (or I should say taxpayers are paying) him salary and perks, completely unaware of his function. Is it any wonder people have become thoroughly disillusioned with politics, and are failing to vote. The only reason I still vote is that I honour the women who fought so hard to get the vote, but I do it with a heavy heart because I see that greed and hypocrisy thrive in the world of politics.

A classified ad offering a baby, â&#x20AC;&#x153;free to a good home,â&#x20AC;? has Victoria police officers attempting to find the would-be seller. The investigation began around 10:30 a.m. Monday after police were alerted to an ad posted on UsedVictoria.com, offering the baby with a photo of an infant attached. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously this is disconcerting,â&#x20AC;? said Const. Mike Russell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first part of me thinks, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It must be a hoax.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Then you have a sober second thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You know what? Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hoax or not, this needs â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to be investigated because we need to given information ensure thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no to the Victoria kids at risk here.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? On Monday police Police Department, were still trying to who are now track down where the origin of the investigating.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Erin Richards post. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably not from our jurisdiction; not on the Island,â&#x20AC;? Russell said. Erin Richards, marketing co-ordinator for UsedVictoria, a Black Press-owned website, said they are co-operating with police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First and foremost, our concern is the welfare of the child and what is in their best interest and that is why we removed the ad immediately after it was posted,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have given information to the Victoria Police Department, who are now investigating.â&#x20AC;? While Russell said the post is â&#x20AC;&#x153;probablyâ&#x20AC;? a hoax, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no definitive proof of that means a child could be in danger. kslavin@saanichnews.com

City of Victoria manager of parks planning and Design Doug De Marzo with plans of the rain garden at the soon-to-be-completed Fishermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wharf Park.

Water garden helps park grow Daniel Palmer News staff

Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city planners are unveiling an innovative way to deal with anticipated wetter winters and drier summers in the coming years. A new park at Fishermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wharf, expected to open Oct. 2, features a rain garden â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a stream-like gully full of shrubs that captures rainwater runoff from the surrounding area and cleans it before draining to the nearby ocean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This rain garden allows nature to do its job,â&#x20AC;? said Roy Brooke, Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of sustainability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any toxins like lead, copper or zinc will get absorbed by the plants in the rain garden, and we help keep the Inner Harbour cleaner for all of us.â&#x20AC;? The new park includes sitting areas, green space and a walking bridge over the rain garden. Small hills were created to avoid the unnecessary expense and impact of shipping tonnes of soil out of town, said parks manager Doug DeMarzo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cement wall (surrounding the rain garden) actually represents

the footprint of the old harbour as well,â&#x20AC;? DeMarzo said of the $650,000 renovation that began in April. Rain gardens already exist in several public and private areas of the city including Trent Street, Oswald Park and The Atrium. But Fishermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wharf parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 352square-metre garden is the largest to date, collecting grey water from more than 14,000 square metres in the surrounding area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll definitely be seeing more,â&#x20AC;? Brooke said, adding the city is planning to create a storm water utility in 2014 that will provide incentives to developers to include rain gardens in their plans. While residents initially called for a running stream in the park, engineers determined it was not worth disturbing the contaminated soil at a deeper depth, Demarzo said. Howard Markson, a nearby St. Lawrence Street resident, said the park renovation is a deluxe improvement on the previous field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got an environmental payoff, too,â&#x20AC;? Markson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful. I love it.â&#x20AC;? The grand opening will take place Oct. 2 from 11 a.m. to noon.

Speeders to face calming Daniel Palmer News staff

Speeding vehicles along Old Esquimalt Road are nothing new, but Esquimalt council appears to be near tackling the persistent issue. Council budgeted $70,000 to install trafficcalming measures earlier this year, but public works has not yet been approved by council to take action. Some of the proposed options include speed readers, rumble strips and speed tables, or elongated speed bumps. Resident Tony Cond urged the township to take action with the installation of portable speed tables. “We need to move forward,” said Coun. Lynda Hundleby, who suggested staff provide further information on the portable speed tables so that council can make a decision in the coming weeks. Once approved, the measures would be installed late this year or in early-2013. Mayor Barb Desjardins and Coun. David Schinbein were ill Monday, and Dave Hodgins was at a Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference.

Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blue bridge slated for replacement.

SEPTEMBER 2ND â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 29TH

Bridge project manager hired

YOU COULD WIN

$2,500

Daniel Palmer News staff

The City of Victoria has hired a new face to oversee the $92.8-million Johnson Street Bridge replacement project. Ken Jarvela, an engineer with bridge construction experience, will assume the role of project manager, a position made vacant when Mike Lai resigned in July to rejoin the District of Saanich as manager of transportation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an important and exciting transportation project,â&#x20AC;? Jarvela said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am looking forward to joining the project team and to be a part of building a new bridge for Victoria.â&#x20AC;? Jarvela most recently oversaw construction of the $160-million Blue Water Bridge, which spans the St. Clair river between Point Edward, Ont., and Port Huron, Mich. Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of operations, Peter Sparanese, and director of engineering, Dwayne Kalynchuk, had stepped in temporarily to fill the project manager role while a candidate was sought. The city extended its request for proposal stage until Oct. 18, when it will award the construction contract to one of three interested bidders. dpalmer@vicnews.com

www.goldstreamgazette. www .goldstreamgazette.com com

Devour Bistro & Catering Vancity business member Fresh food tastes better. And locally grown fresh food—that tastes best of all. That’s a good way to describe the business model of Devour Food, one of Greater Victoria’s most exciting new restaurants: keep the menu very fresh, very local, and very tasty, and customers will beat a path to your door. Vancity was a big fan of the restaurant’s innovative concept: to focus on in-season ingredients sourced from organic producers in and around the Greater Victoria community. After meeting owner and head chef Jena Stewart, Vancity came to the table with a small-

business start-up loan and financing package that included a term loan and operating line of credit. The financing allowed Devour Food to renovate and update its location in the downtown core at 762 Broughton Street, as well as purchase new equipment and other supplies for its kitchen. Vancity also provided ongoing business and entrepreneur support, which gave Devour Food an important leg up in the city’s hyper-competitive restaurant industry. Since it opened its doors, Devour Food has received rave reviews

and numerous awards. Beyond the accolades, the restaurant has served the community well, highlighting the importance of the local food economy to hundreds of restaurant patrons every day. It has also helped profile several Vancouver Island food producers, giving them a forum for showcasing their delicious products to local residents. Vancity shares Devour Food’s commitment to supporting local businesses, and its support for local farmers and food producers. We continue to invest in the people and businesses who produce, deliver and serve locally grown organic food.

You already get value from buying local. Why not bank that way? vancity.com/victoria Make Good Money (TM) and Good Money (TM) are trademarks of Vancouver City Savings Credit Union.

When you make deposits with Vancity, you earn competitive returns that help you reach your financial goals.

Saanich history tour highlights the Gorge Natalie North News staff

The Gorge, the common border between a number of munici-

palities, has lately 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, and his upcoming Saanich Heritage

Bus Tour and Tea. “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 his-

tory spans from the early farmlands of the Craigflower area and all along the inlet, where the Royal Navy regularly hosted

regatta events. 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. “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. Those days are long gone. 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 and Tea on Sunday (Sept. 16) from 12:30 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 are $30. The tour starts from Saanich Commonwealth Place. 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 250-4751775 ext. 3477 or email archives@saanich.ca. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Esq. has new deputy fire chief Ray Saurette, a 30-year veteran and previous Saanich fire chief, has become the deputy fire chief of Esquimalt.

Mustang, marijuana seized from Victoria home

GRAND OPENING!

A 2013 Ford Mustang GT and a pound of marijuana were seized by Victoria police from a home in the 400-block of Catherine St. last week. A drug search warrant was executed on the home around 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 7. Police seized the marijuana and a small amount of hash. The Mustang was also seized, and police are pursuing options for forfeiture of the vehicle. “This seizure should send a strong message

This Saturday!

to those who profit from crime that VicPD will exhaust every law and means to make them pay,” said Const. Bob Isles. “In this case the accused was obviously quite profitable selling drugs, and that unfortunately comes at a cost to someone else.” A 50-year-old Victoria man was arrested at the home. He faces charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Student calls for Langford opinions Charla Huber News staff

Speak up about public involvement on Langford’s planning decisions. Royal Roads University student, Dory Thuot is hosting Your Voice Langford, an evening conversation on public engagement and the City of Langford. Thuot is asking for participants to join her in her academic research as part of her Master of Arts in Leadership course. All of the information collected will be passed on to Langford staff.

“With the downtown revitalization project almost complete, now what’s in the future?” Thuot said. “My research is specific to the downtown core ... it’s a way to contain the research.” Through her work Thuot divided the stake-holders into three categories, business owners, downtown residents and active users such as people who work or shop in the downtown core. During Your Voice Langford, Thuot aims to get at least 25 participants in each category. While city planning includes areas such as parking, density and development,

Thuot stresses this evening will focus on the city engaging its residents for future decisions. “I want to see what promotes engagement and what would prevent people from wanting to be (engaged),” Thuot said. “This is a new thing for Langford and it’s been a challenge (for me) to get people out to talk. As a community we should all be involved.” Your Voice Langford is Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. at Our Lady of the Rosary, 798 Goldstream Ave. Participants must pre-register with Thuot at dorythuot@gmail.com. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Royal Roads hands out international award Japanese businessman recognized for achievements Royal Roads University presented a new award as a part of the Global Summit of Leaders last month. Yoshito Hori received the first ever honour for Global Principled Centred Entrepreneur of the Year, presented by summit organizers League Financial Partners. Hori is the chairman of Globis Corporation, based out of Tokyo, Japan. He flew in for the summit to address the young entrepreneurs taking part in the event. Globis Corporation is a management school in Japan with the largest venture capital fund. Through his work Hori is also leading the dialogue surrounding Japan’s reconstruction efforts after the earthquake and tsunami in 2011. He has been instrumental in promoting broad perspectives on nuclear power in his country. “He is a true visionary and lives by his values,” co-founder and co-chair of League Emanuel Arruda said in a press release. “It was evident with the work he has done as a father, entrepreneur, community leader and social change agent in Japan.” news@goldstreamgazette.com

Royal Roads University student, Dory Thuot seeks participants for Your Voice Langford.

Picketing ramped up at the University of Victoria this week, as striking CUPE workers walked the line both Tuesday and Wednesday. On the first day of picketing, campus security workers with CUPE 917 set up strikes around the campus security building. On Wednesday, staff picketed at multiple UVic buildings throughout the day, including at the Administrative Services Building, the Saunders Annex and a continuation of the strike at the campus security building. Workers from both 917 and CUPE 951 took part. “We see it as sort of upping the ante a little

bit. It's starting to have a direct cost to the employer,” said Rob Park, president of CUPE 917. This week's job action hit departments linked with accounting, pensions, purchasing, printing and distribution services. “We, again, are trying to move things along without impacting the students,” Park said. “We're starting to run out of alternatives, but we're still using the ones we've got.” Doug Sprenger, president of CUPE 951 told the Victoria News last week the unions don't intend to directly impact students until Sept. 17, unless the university returns to the bargaining table. kslavin@saanich news.com

Latin film week shows unique perspective UVic-led event showcases best in Latin American and Spanish cinema Kyle Wells News staff

Cinecenta is going south of the border for the Third Latin American and Spanish Film Week, from Sept. 18 to 23. The event is organized by the department of Hispanic and Italian studies at the University of Victoria and showcases some of the best in Latin American cinema. “The idea essentially is to showcase different cultures and societies of Latin America and Spain,” UVic professor Dan Russek said. “All these countries have thriving cultures. … So we’re interested in bringing these movies to Victoria that otherwise might not reach the community.” Every night of the event features a film from a different country. O Palhaço (The Clown) is a 2011 film from Brazilian director Selton Mello, who also stars in the film. Described as a lighthearted and

nostalgic tale, the film follows a father/son travelling clown act. The son, Benjamin, begins to question if he is funny and sets out on a journey of self-discovery. Gatos viejos (Old Cats) is a 2010 Chilean film by directors Sebastián Silva and Pedro Peirano. The dramatic film explores family relations, the generation gap and misplaced expectations through its story of an aging couple living in simplicity when their daughter and her lesbian lover come to visit with a get-rich scheme. On the Thursday night is Trisha Ziff’s La Maleta Mexicana (The Mexican Suitcase), a documentary about the recovery in 2007 of 4,500 photograph negatives taken during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). Stephanie Boyd’s Operación Diablo (The Devil Operation) is screening on the Friday night. This documentary focuses on Father Marco Arana, a priest in Peru who spent two decades defending mountain farmers from a U.S.-owned gold mine. Proceeds from this screening will go to Mosqoy, a Canadian charity, founded by a former UVic student, promoting social justice

Starring Ricardo Darín (The Secret in Their Eyes), this film centres on a hardware store owner who helps a young man from China search for his uncle. It can be hard to describe, but Russek said that Latin American movies have a certain flavour to them that distinguishes them from other international cinema. “Some bittersweetness about life, I would say,” Russek said. “Life can be hard in Latin America. The social problems, the drug trafficking, inequality. … And that … sinks into their work without being didactic or pedagogical.” Even the comedies typically have something to say about social issues or the Latin American experience, Russek said. “They’re not shallow comedies. … There’s some bite, some darkness.” Show times for all films are 7 and 9 p.m. All screenings are at Cinecenta (3800 Finnerty Rd.). All films will be screened with English subtitles. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

For days like today!

Canada at the past two under-20 Junior World Cup Trophy tournaments, a product of the St. Michaels University School rugby program. “ARC selection is something everyone involved here is hoping for,” said Fuailefau, who trains daily with a senior national team’s long list. “Fuailefau will be in and among some pretty good company, and if he excels within that group it’ll be a positive indicator for him.” MacMillan said. Fuailefau’s first taste of the CRC came as a winger against the Atlantic Rock in August, in which he played a steady 80 minutes. Against Ontario, Fuailefau will start as a centre. It’s his ideal position, where he’s played for Canada U20, the UVic Vikes premier men and will likely suit up for the Castaway Wanderers this year.

Rugby’s proving grounds National rugby centre hosts provincial test this weekend Travis Paterson News staff

Rugby has come a long way in Langford. City Centre Park was once but a twinkle in Mayor Stew Young’s eyes. Now it’s the home of the Canadian Rugby Centre for Excellence, an incubator developing the country’s top players. The progression continues tomorrow (Sept. 15) as City Centre Park’s main field, Westhills Stadium, hosts the Pacific Tyee against the Ontario Blues. It’s the Tyee’s final match of the Canadian Rugby Championship, the annual regional contest between the Tyee (Team B.C.), Blues, Prairie WolfPack and Atlantic Rock. And it’s happening on the same grounds where the international America’s Rugby Championship will take place between Canada, Argentina, U.S.A. and Uruguay, Oct. 12 to 20. “(The Tyee) have been at it for three months now and we’ve tried to put together an inclusive program for the players and various coaches who’ve helped out,” said Tyee head coach John MacMillan. A core of Oak Bay High graduates lead the Tyee:

The same goes for UVic Vikes Nathan Hirayama and Sean Duke. Despite many national team players in the Tyee’s backfield, it hasn’t been the rosiest of CRC competitions. The Tyee have just one win in four matches. Wouldn’t you know, the only win was against Ontario on Sept. 1. “Outside of the results on the field, it’s been a satisfactory result all around,” MacMillan said. “The win against Ontario means a lot for our old rivalry with Ontario.” Moreover, Saturday is the final opportunity for players to catch the attention of the ARC selectors, national team head coach Kieran Crowley in particular. It’s why the CRC was developed in the first place, to give the country’s top 100-plus elite a chance to face each other on a regular basis. Professionals, of which Canada

Extreme triathlon comes to Durrance Lake, Mount Work Off-road triathlon joins community Travis Paterson News staff

Xterra Victoria is the latest addition to the Victoria triathlon scene. And it comes with an Olympic endorsement. London Games triathlete Brent McMahon will compete in the first ever Xterra Victoria race, Sunday morning (Sept. 16) at Durrance Lake. It’s taken race director Monique Moore and company two years to bring the off-road version of triathlon to fruition in Greater Victoria. “It will be about 60 racers this weekend and we’re very excited to start off small,” Moore said. “We want to get people comfortable with the idea, as this is the first off-road triathlon in the welldeveloped triathlon community of Victoria.” Despite never hosting a race before, Greater Victoria is known throughout the Xterra and triathlon communities as the home of Melanie McQuaid, three time Xterra world champion. McQuaid will be unavailable to compete this weekend, however. The race begins with a 500-metre lap swim in Durrance Lake, which transitions to a 14-kilometre cross-country mountain bike course through the Mount Work/Hartland trail system, and ends with a four-km run through the Partridge Hills. Unlike the standard distances

Extreme terra ■ Race distances vary on the Xterra triathlon circuit. ■ The most famous Xterra race is Xterra Maui, the Xterra world championship, a 1.5km rough-water swim, 29.5km mountain bike and a 9.8km trail run. ■ Xterra Victoria hopes to increase its size from this year’s 500-metre swim, 14km mountain bike, and 4km run.

of road triathlons, there are no set distances for Xterra races, which vary depending on the geography of the off-road trails. Moore, a Victoria resident originally from Calgary, is a 10-time Ironman veteran and has competed at world triathlon championships in the Olympic triathlon distance. But she’s never done an Xterra, yet. “I will definitely be doing one soon, but I was even more excited to bring one to Victoria.” She met with Xterra Canada president Cal Zaryski, of Calgary, and the conversation immediately turned to the need to put an Xterra race on the South Island, the heart of triathlon country. “This is an area that has world-class mountain biking, top Canadian triathletes and athletes otherwise, and we connected around that,” Moore said. B.C. already hosts three other Xterra races in Whistler, Kelowna and Vernon. The series is popular across Canada. The

Canadian Xterra championships were held last week in Canmore, Alta., and there are two more events in Saskatchewan. Originally, Moore and the other organizers looked at Thetis Lake, using the lesser-known mountain biking trails of upper Thetis for the cycle portion. “But we ran into quite a few environmental roadblocks,” Moore said. “There are some commonly used cycling trails at upper Thetis but there was also some sensitivity about using the area for a race.” The Mount Work/Hartland mountain biking trails are the most used in the area and already host Island Cup mountain biking races. The question was where to swim, and despite its smaller size, Durrance is big enough. “Xterra Canada races are usually under 200 competitors so the main beach of Durrance will work as the transition area (from swim to bike).” The second Sunday of September is not set in stone as an annual race date for Xterra Victoria, but because approval for the race only came through in June, and because the triathlon calendar in Victoria and southern B.C. is also pretty full, there was little choice. “The weather is holding out, hopefully, and the temperature is still great, so the race might stay in September for next year,” Moore said.

New squad, same expectations Rebuilt Grizz open home schedule Travis Paterson News staff

In his B.C. Hockey League coaching career Bill Bestwick has experienced teams with high turnover. But this year’s Victoria Grizzlies resemble that of an expansion team, not one that was within a win of the Coastal conference finals in 2011. The new-look Grizzlies split the first two games at the BCHL showcase in Chilliwack last weekend, a 1-0 loss to the Coquitlam Express and a 5-4 overtime win against the Port Alberni Bulldogs. Tonight (Sept. 14) is the Grizz home-opener against the Powell River Kings. “For a team of 17 new players, I thought they acquitted themselves well (in Chilliwack),” Bestwick said. “The Coquitlam game could have been 3-3, and it could have gone either way, both goalies were great.” Coquitlam’s Cole Huggins stopped all 40 shots he faced for the shutout. Victoria’s Brady Rouleau saved 26 of 27 shots.

Rouleau, 19, won 12 games with the Cowichan Valley Capitals last year and was unlucky to be pinned with the team’s first loss on Friday. The Grizzlies’ other netminder, Michael Stiliadis, an 18-year-old import from Ontario, earned the win over Port Alberni on Saturday despite letting in four goals. “You’re not going to see many shutouts in this league,” Bestwick said. “That said, from what I saw at the showcase, there is some extremely good goaltending in the BCHL this year.” Bestwick only took over as the Grizz head coach and general manager in late June, which, by junior A hockey standards, is considered too late. Regardless, he and assistant coach-GM Craig Didmon got as busy as they could in the trading and recruiting department. “I’ve never started with a team in July,” Bestwick said. “But the expectations aren’t any less. If anything, it’s a chance to shape this group of players into our philosophy.” The Grizz host the Powell River Kings tonight, 7:15 p.m. at Bear Mountain Arena. Tomorrow the Grizzlies visit the Capitals in Duncan. sports@vicnews.com

Give them power. Give them confidence. Give them control.

GIVE THEM A PAPER ROUTE! A paper route is about so much more than money. These days kids want and need so many things. With a paper route they not only earn the money to buy those things, they also gain a new respect for themselves. They discover a new sense of confidence, power and control by having their very own job, making their own money and paying for their own games, phones and time with friends. All it takes is an hour or so after school Wednesday and Friday. And even better... there are no collections required.

It’s so easy to get started… call

Run for the Cure needs volunteers

New police watchdog ready to go Tom Fletcher Black Press

B.C.’s new police oversight office is officially in operation, ready to take over investigations of incidents involving police that result in serious injury or death. Former U.S. prosecutor Richard Rosenthal was hired last year for the new office, after establishing similar services in Denver and Portland. Rosenthal said he has hired 30 of 36 investigators, divided into four teams, who are now on call to oversee investigation of any major incident involving police in the province. About half of those investigators are former police, none of whom previously worked in B.C. Rosenthal and Justice Minister Shirley Bond said police experience is required, because the teams will need to secure crime scenes, interview police and other witnesses, and investigate incidents involving off-duty police officers, including homicides. B.C.’s Independent Investigations Office (IIO) is the fourth of its kind in Canada, and has the

i˜Ã>˜`ÅÕÌÌiÀ°Vœ“

Richard Rosenthal largest civilian presence of any in the world, Rosenthal said. The B.C. government committed to a civilian-led agency after a string of incidents involving RCMP and city police forces. The office was recommended by inquiries into the 2007 death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver airport, and Frank Paul, who was removed from the Vancouver Police drunk tank in 1998 and left unconscious in an alley.

The largest single-day, volunteerled event in support of breast cancer in Canada is set to take place later this month and volunteers are needed to make it happen. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure

The 2005 gunshot death of Ian Bush at the RCMP detachment in Houston, B.C. was another case that pushed the B.C. government to end the practice of police incidents being investigated by other police forces. The independent office will also bring B.C. RCMP officers under civilian oversight. Bond said B.C. police agencies asked for independent oversight after police-led investigations in the Paul and Dziekanski cases eroded public support. Rosenthal said he intends to make reports public, whether or not the IIO recommends charges against police officers. Final decisions on charges are made by a Crown prosecutor, as with any other B.C. criminal case. The IIO expects to deal with about 100 cases involving death or serious injury in an average year. The office has a budget of about $10 million a year, working out of headquarters in Surrey. The existing B.C. Police Complaints Commissioner is continuing to handle public complaints against police forces in the province. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

CYCLING

Nanaimo Mountie finds a new passion as he trains for this year’s Tour de Rock Chris Bush Black Press

C

onst. Chris Fernandes has a new love in his life – cycling. Fernandes is representing the Nanaimo RCMP on the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock 2012 team. At 59, he is also one of the oldest riders to tackle the Tour, but he’s motivated by his quest for a new athletic challenge and the fact that his two-year-old granddaughter was diagnosed with leukemia in September. Raising money to fight childhood cancer seemed like something he could do to fight back. “You get this feeling of helplessness, where you’d like to help, but there’s nothing you can do. In my case, there is something I can do,” Fernandes said. Fernandes retired from the RCMP after 36 “I like to years of service – 30 of them in Nanaimo – challenge myself. serving as a general duty officer and in several I’m not afraid to other positions. When he retired in 2009, he immediately breathe hard.” signed up as a reserve constable and still shows – Chris Fernandes up for work each day. Fernandes has always been athletic and taken on sports that were sure to test his ability and endurance. He is a member of Nanaimo Search and Rescue and was one of the original members of the B.C. RCMP dive team, now known as the RCMP Dive Recovery Team. For Fernandes it’s no big deal to hike to the top of Mount Benson in Nanaimo or hop on a bike and put 50 kilometres under his tires. “I like challenging myself,” Fernandes said. “I’m not afraid to breathe hard. The way I see it is if I stay in shape well enough and I see something and I want to try it, I can still do it.” His newfound love for cycling came as a surprise to him, but it was evident at the end of the first 20-kilometre training ride in March when the trainees returned to the Parksville RCMP detachment and Fernandes opted to cycle back to his home in Nanaimo instead of catching a lift back to town. “Other than riding to work, I hadn’t done a lot of biking,”

Chris Bush/Black Press

Chris Fernandes sets sights on the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock trek, which begins in Port Alice on Sept. 23. Fernandes said. “This has been kind of a bonus because I’ve actually found another sport that I really enjoy doing.” But even someone in Fernandes’s physical condition is tested by Tour de Rock training, especially on “speed nights” when riders train to produce high bursts of speed over a 36-kilometer course, much of it uphill, to build stamina and lung capacity. Fernandes previously fundraised before for Vision Quest and for Nanaimo Search and Rescue and hopes to raise at least $10,000 during this year’s Tour de Rock for pediatric cancer research. “As much as I can,” he said.
