Vancouver Island University officials propose cancelling or suspending seven programs and expanding or enhancing others following an assessment of the institution’s academic programs. Programs recommended for cancellation are horticulture therapy, green building, the minor in theatre and diploma in computing science. The theatre diploma and the degree in computing science would stay, and the computing science diploma would be maintained if it is relocated to VIU’s Cowichan campus. The major in music, major in fisheries and aquaculture and heavy equipment operator programs are recommended for suspension, which means a detailed review over the next year to determine if the program should be redeveloped or cancelled. Fisheries and music both have diploma programs administrators want maintained. The review also recommends that two programs – visual arts and environmental chemistry – be expanded, 20 others enhanced, and the majority (about 80 per cent) be maintained in current form. David Witty, VIU’s provost and vice-president academic, said the program review came out of the university’s academic plan, which was adopted in 2010 and is designed to inform good decision making. “We’re in tight financial times, but for me, this is about quality,” he said. “We need to ensure we’re providing quality education.” ◆ See ‘LOW’ /4

Wage freeze used to help reduce deficit BY TOM FLETCHER BLACK PRESS

The B.C. government is freezing management salaries in government, Crown corporations and agencies, and imposing a hiring freeze on direct government jobs to deal with a rising deficit forecast. Finance Minister Mike de Jong delivered his first quarterly financial update Thursday, showing a deficit forecast up $173 million. That would bring the deficit to $1.14 billion by the end of the fiscal year next March, due mainly to lost revenues from falling natural gas prices. The hiring free ze doesn’t apply to health authorities, universities and other services beyond direct government staff, which is budgeted to shrink by 2,000 positions through attrition in the next three years. The pay freeze doesn’t apply to unionized positions, but de Jong said B.C.’s bargaining mandate for unions is also being reviewed. The current mandate calls for wage increases to be financed by savings in other parts of unionized operations. It has so far not produced a settlement with the biggest union representing direct provincial employees, the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, which staged a series of one-day strikes since rejecting a 3.5-per cent wage increase over two years. D e Jo n g s a i d h e intends to present a bal-

anced budget in February for the 2013-14 fiscal year, when the government will face a May election. To do that, the government has to make up for an expected $389 million drop in natural gas revenue that year. The government uses g as price forecasts from five private sector agencies, but none fully accounted for the surge of shale gas production that has depressed North American prices. B.C. producers have ramped up despite the softening price, to prove reserves needed for liquefied natural gas export facilities proposed for the north coast. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston said he predicted the gas price drop last spring, but former finance minister Kevin Falcon ignored him. Ralston scoffed at de Jong’s claim that his ministry will find more savings in travel budgets and other discretionary spending. “ T r ave l b u d g e t s ? That’s an old movie,” he said. De Jong said a fall l e g i s l a t ive s e s s i o n is “unlikely” as he and other ministers appointed in Premier Christy Clark’s Sept. 5 cabinet shuffle learn their new jobs and work on balancing the budget. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

A man, who would only identify himself as Jim, uses a net to chase down one of several pink salmon caught in a tide pool at Departure Bay Beach Thursday. He landed two of the fish which he said he’d toss on his barbecue. “There’s no sense making a pig of myself and taking more than I can eat,” he said. Moments later the tide came in freeing the remaining fish. CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

District intends to stick to class-size limits

I

TEACHERS SAY they plan to refuse monetary compensation. BY JENN M C GARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo school officials are working to keep all classes in the district within the legislated limit of 30 students or less. Bill 22, provincial legislation passed last spring, stipulates that extra compensation must be provided to teachers with oversized classes. That compensation can come in the form of increased pay, additional preparation time, professional development funding or a combination of all three. But the district hopes compensation won’t be necessary. Trustees have asked staff to try to keep all classes within the limit, said Jamie Brennan, school board chairman. The board must know by Sept. 30 if the district has been able to accomplish this, as this is the cutoff date for sending finalized class numbers to the Education Ministry.

In recent years, the district has run oversized classes at the secondary level in the interests of offering students as much program choice as possible. For example, if only 20 students at a secondary school want to take Calculus 12, a principal could make up for the low enrolment by scheduling a few Math 10 classes with 31 or 32 students. “You can’t keep adding classes to the timetable because that means hiring extra teachers and we can’t do that because we don’t have the money,” said Brennan. He said this year’s mandate, if feasible, will probably mean some courses won’t be available except through distance learning, especially at the smaller secondary schools including Cedar, John Barsby and Woodlands. The decision to try to work within the limits was made for several reasons. Brennan said the district is in a better financial position this year than in recent years due to a surplus and the learning improvement fund, a special grant from the province to help deal with complex classroom situations. Trustees expect a push from teach-

ers during the collective bargaining process next spring for firm class size limits that cannot be breached, even for compensation, and packing classrooms with extra students this fall would create conflict between the union and the district, he said. “And it’s just sound educational policy,” said Brennan. “It does make sense to have ceilings. Thirty is a good number.” Justin Green, president of the Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association, said keeping classes at 30 or less is good, but he’s worried that the distance learning program will become a “dumping ground” for students above that limit. “I don’t know where there’s any evidence that would support that that’s the optimal learning environment,” he said. If the district is unable to succeed with its all-classes-under-30 goal, teachers will not accept monetary compensation for oversized classes, Green added. “It does nothing for the student, it’s just money in the pocket,” he said. “We believe the resolution to any class over 30 is more preparation time or more teachers.” reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Low interest in programs facing cuts â—† From /1 Recommendations will go to the senate in the coming months. Cancelled programs would be phased out over time to ensure students are able to graduate. Witty said of the four recommended for cancellation, horticulture therapy and green building are not currently offered and both the minor in theatre and computing science diploma have low enrolment. As for the suspension

recommendations, the major in music has a high cost per student and there is already a strong diploma program in place; few students are graduating from the fisheries and aquaculture degree program; and the heavy equipment operator program’s equipment costs are so high, the university is not currently in a position to replace equipment as it ages. “This is an opportunity for redevelopment,� said Witty.

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL 2012 TRANSPORTATION REVIEW The District of Lantzville plans to retain a consulting ďŹ rm to undertake a comprehensive transportation review of the road network within the District. The review will address both current and future trafďŹ c patterns. The 2012 Transportation Review will be used by the District to evaluate future road network improvements and to assess development requirements. Public consultation early in the planning process will be required as part of the assignment. All enquires related to the Request for Proposal shall be directed to Fred Spears, Director of Public Works by phone: 250390-4006 or email: spears@lantzville.ca. p Proposals will be received until 2:00 pm on Friday, October 19, 2012.

Steve Beasley, executive director of the VIU Students’ Union, said no one wants to see program cuts and less options for students, but the university has gone about the review in an open and transparent way with participation from students and faculty. “This process is leaps ahead of what the university has been doing, which is cutting things across the board,� he said. “We’re not in favour of getting rid of any programs, but if there have to be cuts because of gover nment underfunding, they should be strategic cuts. It’s not a process that anyone has taken lightly.� Beasley called the decision to cancel horticulture therapy and green building a more “honest� move by the university because

they are what he calls ghost programs – on the books, but never offered. Don Furnell, fisheries and aquaculture program chair man, said the degree program only graduates four to six students per year, but costs are trivial because the lower-level courses are the same as in the diploma program and there are only a couple of courses strictly for degree students. If VIU ultimately chooses to cancel the course, diploma students would not have the option to go on to a degree and the department could lose one faculty member and a technician, he said. Gara Pruesse, chairwoman of the computing science department, hopes there will be an opportunity to revisit the recommen-

In an e-mailed response, she said the diploma requires no courses that aren’t already of fered to degree majors and allows students to have some credentials after two years if they cannot do four for financial or other reasons, at no extra cost to the university. “If the option to enter the workforce in a good job after two years of study is one of the things that attracts students to explore this course of study, why remove that option, even if most of the students choose to continue their studies?� wrote Pruesse. “I think such an action could actually be a blow to our degree program.� reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Run keeps dream alive

I

TERRY FOX Run set for Sunday (Sept. 16) from aquatic centre. BY CHRIS HAMLYN THE NEWS BULLETIN

They are a group of individuals who come together with a common goal – to finish a dream one young British Columbian tried to accomplish more than 30 years ago. After having his right leg amputated above the knee due to cancer in 1977, Terry Fox saw the suffering of other cancer patients and decided to run across the country to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Starting in St. John’s, N.L., in 1980, Fox ran a marathon (42.2 kilometres) a day for 143 days before the cancer returned, forcing him to stop in Thunder Bay, Ont. Fox, 22, died June 28, 1981. Since his death, the Terry Fox Run has kept the dream alive, raising more than $600 million worldwide in the fight against cancer. On Sunday (Sept 16), Nanaimo residents join their counterparts around world for the 32nd annual Terry Fox Run at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre. Registration opens at 9 a.m. with the run at 10 a.m. “Cancer affects us all,” said Chris Barfoot, city recreation coordinator

and run organizer. “Every runner and volunteer has a personal reason for coming out, but when they get together, it becomes one big family.” The Nanaimo run has raised more than $200,000 for cancer research over the years. Participants have a choice of two-, five- or 10-kilomtere routes leaving the aquatic centre and heading along Wakesiah Avenue toward Colliery Dam Park. “We’ve averaged about 150 to 200 people each year for the last four years and we’d like to see those numbers grow,” said Barfoot. “It’s a positive event dealing with a tragic subject yet here we are, still running for Terry. It’s hard not to get caught up in the emotion of what he tried to accomplish.” Post-run events include face painting, balloon animals, temporary tattoos, entertainment and massages. Close to 40 volunteers are needed to put the run on, but Barfoot said getting help is never a problem. “The closer we get to the event I get phone calls from people who have volunteered in the past and want to help again,” he said. “The minute you ask, people are there to help.” For more information on the run, please call 250-756-5200.

A game played using smart phones will get new students oriented to their campus and community. Vancouver Island University Students’ Union in Nanaimo is launching a new mobile social media app for iPhones and Android system-based phones designed to help students find their way around campus and Nanaimo. The app is already being used on campuses across Canada, including VIU’s Nanaimo campus, but its official launch in Nanaimo will happen next week when students will play a game of capture the flag in augmented reality that will run Wednesday to Friday (Sept. 19-21).

“What it’s intended to do is create a campus community based around this,” said James Bowen, VIU Students’ Union resource coordinator for campus life. “It has a social media function where people who are using the app on campus can chat with each other, it allows clubs and other organizations on campus to post all their events in an easy to access format. It’s got student deals on it as well.” The features are linked together with Google Maps, so students can see where other people are at on campus and chat or meet up with them. They can also see where they are on campus and what student deals on products and services they are close to.

What it’s intended to do is create a campus community.

“It’s been pretty popular,” Bowen said. “We started promoting it last week and people are using it. It’s awesome.” The augmented reality capture the flag game uses the GPS feature in smart phones, so participants can see where the ‘flag’ is, move into that area and try to capture it. A player steals the flag from another player by get-

ting in close enough proximity to the player for the flag to automatically transfer to their possession. The player who keeps the flag the longest over the three days of play wins. “You will see where the treasure is and where the other players are on the campus,” Bowen said. “We’ve outlined a boundary of the campus. We’ll play it for three days and people will be able to run, grabbing the prize, stealing it from each other.” First prize is a $300 tuition discount for the student who keeps the flag the longest. Second prize, a $150 credit at the campus book store, goes to the player who has the flag at the end of the game. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Lockers campaign reaches goal Lockers are brimming with school supplies this year thanks to community donors. The Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation surpassed its fundraising goal of raising $50,000 for its Stock the Lockers campaign. It raised more than $54,000 for needy students in the school district. Staples participated in the campaign for the third year and collected $18,000 in donations at its Nanaimo locations and Coastal Community Credit Union raised $8,700 at its locations. “The foundation is blown away by the support the community contributed to make Stock the Lockers a huge success this year,” said Erin van Steen, executive director of the foundation, in a press release. Money raised is used to purchase school supplies and provide other necessities such as shoes, coats, and to help cover band or athletic fees and bus passes for students in need.

Shark fin ban bylaw reaches final stages

Potential market seen as a destination

GROUP AIMS to help raise profile of Island farmers.

and ownership in the agricultural industry so it’s close to my heart,” he said, adding he was a vendor at Halifax’s farmers’ market, one of the largest and oldest in the country, for five years. Hustins said he is confident that any business person would support the idea of a permanent market in Nanaimo. “It’s a great way to bring the community together while offering good quality food stuff,” he said. Already, several local suppliers have signed on to the project as the idea takes root. Whaley said the long-term goal is to turn the market into a destination for locals and visitors. “The goal is to create a landmark,” he said. The co-operative’s first annual general meeting takes place Oct. 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bowen Road Complex in activity room No. 1, and will include the election of seven directors.

Nanaimo city council moved ahead Monday to ban shark fin soup or any derivative of shark fins by passing the third reading of a business licence amendment bylaw. Shark fin soup is a traditional Chinese delicacy, often used at banquets or weddings to flaunt wealth. A bowl of soup can cost $100, while shark fins can fetch up to $800 per pound. Because shark meat is almost worthless, sharks are often caught in a net, de-finned and then tossed back into the ocean by fishermen to meet a cruel and certain death. The fin cartilage has virtually no nutrition benefits and offers little taste. Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan said the city knows of only one business in Nanaimo offering the product, though that business has agreed to comply with the new bylaw. “The issue in greater Vancouver might be bigger but for us I don’t think the issue is as severe,” said Ruttan. The maximum fine currently under the bylaw is $2,000 in Nanaimo, though the city could seek cancellation of a business licence for JOHN RUTTAN perpetual offend... business will comply ers through the with bylaw. court system. City staff will be bringing a report forward to council on the potential of increasing penalties and the legal issues associated with increasing penalties. Coun. Jim Kipp said he strongly supports the ban. “I think education will pay off more than slamming somebody with a fine,” he said. The bylaw still needs to pass final adoption. Other B.C. municipalities that have chosen to ban shark fin products include Port Moody and Coquitlam, while Surrey, Burnaby, Langley and North Vancouver are considering it. Five U.S. states – Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, California and Illinois – have also banned the product, as have eight Ontario municipalities including Toronto, which has imposed a maximum fine of $100,000. According to the Vancouver Animal Defence League, an estimated 70 million to 100 million sharks are killed annually for their fins worldwide.

Any city worth its salt has a market where people can congregate, purchase local food while supporting farmers, and socialize. Ottawa has its Byward Market, Toronto its Kensington, Seattle its Pike Place and Calgary its Farmers’ Market. Nanaimo hopes to join that list soon with the development of the Island Roots Market, a year-round, indoor cooperative effort designed to give local food producers an outlet to sell their food while encouraging local farming. The idea, said Larry Whaley, co-founder, was borne from an Occupy Nanaimo general assembly where many young attendees indicated they wanted to farm for a living but doubted they could make a decent living at it in the mid-Island region. Whaley said he believed if there was a permanent venue to sell local food, an opportunity for these people to get to work might exist. On July 17, the Island Roots Market formally registered as a co-op with four founding members, using the cooperative economic model (one member, one vote) and international co-op principals to deal with four local issues including social, cultural, economic and environmental. The difference from other markets, said Whaley, is that farmers and artisans at Nanaimo’s market won’t be required to be in attendance to oversee their sales. “At other markets, producers or employees of producers have to be there,” said Whaley. “We’re eliminating that because farmers and artisans are busy people and we want them to be doing what they do best, which is obviously growing the food that we love to eat.” Instead, co-op employees will gather the food produced by local farmers and take them to market and sell it on their behalf.

age of the revenue will go to the co-op to cover expenses, and farmers will pay rent for display space in coolers or other market locations while setting their own prices for their products. Farmers will be paid for sold products every two weeks. “We may ask (producers) to be there one morning or afternoon each week because consumers like to know who is producing the food that they eat and that will give them the opportunity to meet those producers,” said Whaley. The current plan is to have the market open Thursday through Sunday at a location yet to be determined, but likely somewhere in central Nanaimo between Townsite and Mostar roads. The market is expected to open in spring 2013. Whaley said local food producers are already enthusiastic about the prospect of a permanent market. So is Nanaimo councillor Jim Kipp. He said he’s already purchased his membership because the market is something he strongly supports,

and because it meets several objectives of the city’s official community plan and corporate strategic plan. “People can grow all they want but if they can’t get it to marketplace consumers won’t be able to access that 100-mile food. It’s important to me,” said Kipp. He added that a marketplace fits in to city hall’s goals on food security, the local economy, social issues and cultural issues. “You have to make something to make economy,” he said. “If you’re always exchanging things eventually it runs out, like a pyramid scheme. But when you create something it’s a positive thing.” A.J. Hustins, chair man of the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation, said the idea of the market will be brought to the NEDC’s board in the future to determine how it will fit in to the city’s economic development plan, but on a personal level he strongly supports it. “It sounds like a great idea.

Fox’s dream touches us all After 31 years and millions of dollars raised, you might think the Terry Fox Run would have run out of steam. In fact, the flame that Canadian hero Terry Fox lit more than 30 years ago with his ill-fated national run burns just as brightly, thanks to the continued commitment of volunteers, schools, municipalities and run supporters from all over the world. It would be easy to give the Terry Fox Run a pass on NEED TO find a cure Sunday (Sept. 16). It might rain. Other for cancer things will compete for your remains crucial time. Maybe you’re not as 31 years after inspired as you once were. Further, with Betty Fox’s historic run. passing, fewer Fox family members are able to rally the troops. But then there is this: Everyone is touched by cancer and research saves lives. Although two out of five Canadians are expected to develop cancer, only one of every four Canadians will die from it. Cancer is the leading cause of premature death and funds raised by the Terry Fox Foundation goes to important research that will reduce those statistics. There is also this: More than a million people who don’t even live in Fox’s home nation will run to support the foundation in the coming days. If they can do it, so can we. This weekend, take some time and join a local run: registration for Nanaimo’s run takes place at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre at 9 a.m., and the run starts at 10 a.m. heading along Third Street to Wakesiah Avenue and into Colliery Dam Park. Taking part – running, walking, cycling, in-line skating – is a way of honouring a hero while also endeavouring to put an end to a disease that strikes so many people – many of them, like Fox, simply too young to die. This year, who will you be running for?

And sometimes they don’t, such as the case of Dutch teenager Laura Dekker who, at 16, travelled more than 27,000 nautical miles on her own sailing around the world. Her parents were strongly criticized. How will we ever know the potential of our children if we don’t let them do anything? Now, Dekker’s case is extraordinary, and certainly the exception. Most parents don’t have that kind of risk tolerance. But society is erring on the side of ultra-cautious. If uncertain, we should err on the side of fewer laws. Legislation should only be considered if it protects the masses, not individuals. But I just don’t see the evidence that supports banning kids riding ATVs outright, or forcing people to wear a helmet while riding a bicycle. If kids want to ride ATVs and their parents are cool with it and are willing to accept the responsibility of seeing it’s done safely, they should be allowed. And helmets? We’ve reached a population of 7 billion largely without them. I only wear mine because I don’t want the news report to say “he wasn’t wearing a helmet”. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Cycling advice insults riders To the Editor, Re: Know the rules and share the road, Opinion, Sept. 11. While I’m sure Chris Bush thought his column on safe cycling practice was sage advice from a seasoned cyclist, it is simply furthering the viewpoint that cyclists are second-class users of the roadways and reinforcing the belief that when cyclists are injured in traffic it is their own fault. I beg to differ, and, in fact, so does the province as cyclists have the same rights as cars on the road. I have a couple specific points to bring up: First, when Bush speaks of the cyclist he almost ran over by turning in front of, he describes the cyclist as being in the wrong. Actually, he was not in the wrong. It was certainly not a safe position to put himself in, but if Bush had hit him, it would have been his fault, just like if he had turned abruptly in front of a car to his right. When Bush drove alongside the cyclist, he didn’t disappear. This is a common misconception, but once a cyclist is no longer in your line of sight they don’t cease to exist. Bush should have remembered that he had just moved alongside a cyclist and looked to see if he was still there (they almost always are). The safest way for the cyclist to have been riding in that situation would have been to place himself one-third of the way into the lane, thus staying out of the dangerous area next to car doors, and far

Cyclists have the same rights as vehicles on the road, and must obey the same rules, says letter writer.

LETTERS POLICY: Letters should be no longer than 250 words and will be edited. Include your address and phone number. Unsigned letters or third-party letters will not be published.

enough into the lane that inattentive drivers like Bush would notice and not try to turn in front of him. Second, cyclists are not required to move off the road when cars are near. Cyclists don’t have to ride in the gravel on narrow rural roads if a car comes by. A car coming upon a cyclist on a road with no shoulder should wait behind the cyclist until it is safe to pass. And safe to pass doesn’t mean squeeze the cyclist

off the road while trying to stay on his own side of the yellow line, but pass in a safe manner. Imagine the cyclist is a large piece of farm machinery moving slowly down the road and treat him the same way. Would you try to squeeze a tractor off the road? Undoubtedly there are cyclists who ride in unsafe and even illegal manners, and this needs to be addressed. When I was in elementary school the RCMP came by and did safe cycling courses for all the kids, teaching us how to ride safely on the road. My advice to new cyclists is always to pretend you are an invisible car. Ride like any other vehicle on the road in a predictable manner, using signals. I hope Bush continues to cycle in the city and gains some experience on the roads. The more people there are cycling the more accustomed drivers

become to seeing them and driving safely around them. Tobi Ming via e-mail

Secret ballots must remain To the Editor, I was shocked to hear that the NDP and its leader, Adrian Dix, is planning to eliminate secret ballots for union certification if the NDP are elected to form government in this province after the next election. It gives us a glimpse into the kind of scary policies the NDP have in mind for us, policies they’ve been doing everything they can to hide from the public. Secret ballots are the cornerstone of democracy, and despotism, bullying and intimidation thrive in the absence of secret ballots, regardless of whether it’s in a union hall or a Third World dictatorship. The only ones who will benefit from a union hall show-of-

hands vote are labour union bosses, not the rank and file members. This is the same backward policy step the NDP took when it was elected to government back in 1991, and it’s as much of a slap in the face to democracy, and fundamentally undemocratic, now as it was back then. It also shows us who is pulling the NDP’s strings and who will really be in charge if it is elected to form government in this province. The people of this province deserve a straight and open answer from Dix and the NDP on this question, and we deserve that answer now. Waking up on the day after the election to discover that the B.C. Federation of Labour is running the province again as it did in the 1990s is a thought almost too scary to consider. Matthew Enns Vancouver

A ‘worn out’ denture can have devastating effects that are often invisible and imperceptible TED CARSON to the denture wearer. Dentures are made of a hard, rigid material, but your face, mouth and jaw change over the years. The denture cannot adapt to the changes and the artificial teeth wear down with time. Some possible harmful effects suffered by wearers of old dentures include headaches, earaches, neck pain, TMJ problems and cracked or continually sore corners of the mouth. Dietary problems and difficult digestion can lead to overall health problems. More laborious chewing can cause softening of the gums which can mean irritation and pain and sometimes loose pliable tissues. Wearing dentures that are 10-15 years old inevitably causes permanent damage to the mouth. The longer you delay replacing your dentures, the more your appearance and comfort will be affected. Don’t take chances with your health! For personal, professional denture care contact Ted Carson at Carson Denture Clinic for a free consultation.

You will still need both signatures or, if one of you does not have capacity to sign, the other needs to have Power of Attorney to sign on your behalf. Whether selling a home or otherwise, if you become incapable and do nott have a Power of Attorney, someone must apply to the Court to be appointed your Committee. This is not a nice process, can take a number of months and is extremely expensive. If you have no one willing to take on this process, the government, in the form of the Public Guardian and Trustee, is obliged to step in. It is not a personal service. It is my personal belief, and professional goal, that every adult should have a Power of Attorney. Everyone should have someone that can help them when needed.

Make Your Home “Anonymous”. If there is a new home ‘Show Home’ near your home, go visit it. TIM WAIT It doesn’t matter what size the homes are. What you will find are some wonderfully (but sparsely) furnished homes that anyone could live in -- with the emphasis on “anyone.” They are anonymous. There may be a baseball glove in the boy’s room, but no family photos on the walls. There may be “personality” - but no person. The reason you want to make your home “anonymous” is because you want buyers to view it as their potential home. When a potential homebuyer sees your family photos hanging on the wall, it puts your own brand on the home and momentarily shatters their illusions about living in the house themselves. Put away family photos, sports trophies, collectible items, knick-knacks, and souvenirs. Put them in a box. Rent a storage area for a few months and put the box in the storage unit. Do not just put the box in the attic, basement, garage or a closet. Part of preparing a house for sale is to remove “clutter,” and that is the next step in preparing your house for sale. I offer a no charge consultation service that is designed to prepare your home to sell in less time for more money.

People commonly think of body image as the way we “see” our body—a mental picture of our physical attributes. While this is true, aligning with the notion ANGELA SLADE of body confidence can disrupt the way we think and view “image”. Body confidence includes how we think and feel about our body, how it feels to be in a physical form, and how we decipher and respond to all the messages we receive about appearance—especially misinformation about the relationship between weight, health, and beauty which is shaped by media, culture, family, society and so on. How we take care of our body, how other people respond to us, and any medical issues we might have also influence the body. So, the body can be a very complex issue. Disrupt the notion of “bodyimage” and consider acting on some of the following and notice any shifts that happen. • Be aware of how you carry your body. Walk and speak with dignity. • Get rid of your scale. Write it a good-bye letter! • Get moving! Participate in physical activities that you enjoy. • Develop a new skill that involves dexterity, like sculpture, knitting, or playing an instrument. • Thank your body for all the good things it does for you. Appreciate it for giving you a life. Tell it the kinds of things you would say to a soul mate, because, after all, without your body – you have no house for your life.

We use decibels (dB) when we describe sound levels. Noise is considered too loud and potentially damaging when it exceeds 85 dB. Normal speech is 55 dB, a chainsaw is 95 dB, and a handgun blast can be as much as 160 dB. As a general rule, if you have to raise your voice over the noise, you should be wearing hearing protection. No one should be exposed to sound over 120 dB for even short periods without protection. Levels over 120 dB can cause permanent damage even after one brief exposure. You should avoid loud noise when possible and wear ear protection when in noise. If you suspect hearing loss, call us for a complimentary hearing screening.

The first question I ask about toppers is “what do you want it to do, and does your mattress sag?” If your mattress is sagging forget it, anything you put on top of it will probably make it worse. If the mattress is just too hard then there are lots of topper options, memory foam is only one of them and has a feel that is much different than other toppers, it feels much like sleeping on warm bread dough. With any topper make sure that it’s made in North America, and more importantly that it’s never been crushed into a box or rolled up too tight. That destroys the foam cells.

Insomnia is defined as difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep and affects 30-50% of the North American population. It is a symptom that is DR. KAREN L. FRASER experienced by all age groups, but tends to increase with age. Why is insomnia a concern? Adequate restful sleep is required to allow our mind and body time to repair and regenerate from the day’s activities. In addressing insomnia it is important to explore the underlying causes such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, poor bladder control, cortisol/melatonin disruptions, stress, anxiety, depression or pain disorders. Other factors such as shift work, eating late at night, caffeine, alcohol, or medications may also contribute to sleep disturbance. Journaling or writing a to-do list before going to bed can help relieve excessive thinking that may occur at night. Regular exercise helps promote healthy sleep patterns. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine, which can all cause sleep disturbances. A variety of supplements and herbs can be useful to promote healthy restful sleep including: melatonin, magnesium, chamomile, passionflower, oat, lemon balm, and valerian. These interventions can be helpful when appropriate to reduce anxiety and promote a relaxed state required for sleeping. Naturopathic consults are covered by most extended health care plans.

Filing for bankruptcy does not hinder the right of a secured lender to realize on the collateral for a loan if you are in default on the loan terms. If the payments are not kept up, the lender can foreclose on a home or seize a vehicle regardless of the bankruptcy. However, a bankruptcy filing on its own does not create a default under a loan agreement for a home or vehicle that would immediately permit a lender to enforce its security. If you are able to maintain the loan payments during a bankruptcy (and there is no equity in your home or vehicle above the exemption amounts allowed for under provincial legislation) you can keep your house and car. In B.C. these exemptions are $9,000 for a principal residence and $5,000 for a vehicle. If there is “excess” equity above these amounts, the Trustee would have an obligation to realize on the asset in order to obtain that amount for creditors.

Lineups attest to people re-discovering artisan bread GROWING GLUTEN intolerance likely linked to processing.

I

Before I graduated from bake shop service to the switchboard at head office during my university holiday summer earning periods, I remember hefting large wooden shelves of massproduced bread from the delivery trucks to the shop. That was when I realized what my mother meant when she sent me out to buy either a “plain” loaf or a “pan” loaf. The plain loaves, with their dark, chewy crusts top and bottom and their white, doughy sides, had been baked together and had to be peeled apart. The pan loaves had each inhabited their individual

pan space and had almost no tively recently that such delicacrust. cies have managed to penetrate It was not until I went on the mass bakery market, both cheap, out-of-season in Britain and North student skiing trips America. FOOD to continental Europe As farmers’ marMATTERS that I learned that kets have proliferbread could be a ated on this Island, Marjorie Stewart delight in itself, not with them have just a vehicle for come the artisanal sandwiches. I rememfoodstuffs that bear ber vividly the joy of little resemblance to an Austrian gasthof the industrial foods breakfast consisting whose production is of heaps of fresh governed by shelf bread rolls with flaky, life and bulk profit tender crusts and margins. The queues delicious, melting at the bakery stalls crumb, accompanied by gallons attest to the delight with which of strong (also fresh) coffee. we are re-discovering how good Over the years I learned about bread can be. croissants, brioche, foccacia, Along with the revival in pita, naan and other regional traditional breads has come breads, but I think it is compara- more interest in nutrition, par-

ticularly in the light of growing gluten intolerance and concerns about the impact of excess carbohydrates on the diabetes epidemic. When I looked into the gluten question, I was told that the wheat flour intolerance that results in celiac disease can be traced to a genetic mutation that occurred in medieval Scotland. With fewer people around than today, I guess the transmission of mutated genes would affect a greater proportion of a population, which is a polite way of hinting that some progenitors spread their genes more liberally than others. But the growth of gluten intolerance probably has more to do with over-processing and mass production of products made with wheat flours than with

inherited susceptibilities. Breaking down the grain and grinding up the outer shell, or bran, makes it harder for the body to assimilate the carbohydrates. If we eat true whole grains, bran intact, we make it easier on our bodies. In the U.S., “whole wheat” means exactly what it says. In Canada, flours without whole grains can be called whole wheat and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency sees no reason to make any changes. Read the ingredients to see if you have whole grain or merely whole wheat. ◆ Marjorie Stewart is board chairwoman of the Nanaimo Foodshare Society.

My home desperately needs repairs done that I cannot afford, Can you mortgage this? Yes, you can borrow money on your mortgage to do home repairs or renovations and possibly consolidate other debts into the KRISTA HENLEY & mortgage at the same time. During an appointment with us these SHARON FAUCHON are options we would review, to maximize taking advantage of historically low interest rates! Examples: #1. A Mortgage $255,000 @ variable rate Prime -.6% = $1130 monthly pmt Mastercard $13,000 = $450 per month Penalty to refinance mortgage early: $1500 Amount needed for repairs $12000 Total current monthly payment: $1580 New Mortgage for $281,500 @ 2.99% Fixed for a 5 year term is only $1330 per month! A $250 per month savings PLUS the additional $12000 cash for the home repairs to be done! Also changing from a variable rate to a fixed rate which means your interest rate and payment will be the same for the next 5 years, not fluctuate with prime. #2. A Mortgage $300,000 @ 4.99% Fixed is $1743 per month You need $25,000 for home repairs (Renovations, a new vehicle, or any other reason!) Prepayment Penalty: $10,000 New Mortgage $335,000 @ 2.99% Fixed is $1583 per month! Monthly payment goes down almost $200 per month and you get $25,000! Call us now to review your current mortgage, we can prepare options for your consideration and help you make a smart choice that will ultimately build your wealth and serve you well into the future.

What is the benefit to me for getting my service work done at a Dealership?

The answer is relationship! If you take the time to TERRY MORRISON build a good relationship with your choice of repair centers, you will usually find an ally behind the counter when things go bad. Any good service department will keep a thorough electronic record of all repair and parts transactions. Also, any competent service advisor worth his or her salt will review those records each time a client brings in their vehicle. They do this to see if any scheduled maintenance work needs to be done enabling them to bring it to the customer’s attention at the time of drop off. This insures the vehicle is getting everything it needs. It is also used to make sure there is no duplication of services. It is nice to know that the licensed technicians working on your car, are up to date on the latest training available. If you are like me, it sure is nice having one less thing to remember. And my service advisors certainly don’t mind taking on that responsibility for you. I am fortunate to work with some of the best in the industry at Harris Mitsubishi. To start your relationship, give me a call at 250-758-5000.

While carrying a backpack to school each morning might seem harmless enough, it can cause painful back and neck problems for students who don’t carry DR. KAREN MATTERN them properly. The British Columbia Chiropractic Association suggests the following tips to help prevent needless pain from backpack misuse: Make sure your child’s backpack weighs no more than ten percent of his or her body weight. Make sure that pointy or bulky objects are packed away from the inside against the body, and that the backpack has padded straps. The shoulder straps should also be adjustable, so the backpack can be fitted to your child’s body. It is very important to always wear both shoulder straps. Lugging the backpack around by one shoulder strap can cause a disproportionate shift of weight to one side, leading to neck and muscle spasms as well as low back pain. If the backpack is still too heavy, talk to your child’s teacher. It might be possible to leave the heaviest books at school, and bring home only lighter handout materials or work books. If your children experience any pain or discomfort in the shoulders, arms, legs or back, Dr. Mattern can assess and correct any adverse effects resulting from backpack use. For more information call our office at 250-758-7022 or email drkarin@shaw.ca

As children are settling into their routine of the new school year, DR. PAUL GENEAU parents are concerned about doing everything necessary to ensure a positive learning experience. Something not to be overlooked is an eye examination. Good vision is critical to learning, since as much of 80% of learning is visual. Children may not realize that they are not seeing as well as they should, so help them start their school year off right with a thorough eye examination. No studying required!

All I can say to answer this question is that like anything else you purchase, there is maintenance. It is important to clean, wipe and not abuse your furniture. It is always your responsibility to take care of your investment. Outside of this, taking advantage of protection plans that are offered by your sales associate is a small investment to give you piece of mind to ensure any accidents that may happen will be taken care of for you. If we do not ask you about it, please inquire. Just remember that here at Dodd’s Furniture, “WE WONT BE UNDER SOLD!”

Solenn Vogell describes some of her adventures travelling through Ecuador to members of the Rotary Club of Nanaimo. Vogell spent a year abroad through Rotary’s exchange program.

Rotary students exchange worldly travel adventures The Rotary Club of Nanaimo heard some amazing stories recently when Melissa Verhoeks and Solenn Vogell talked to the club about their year abroad. Verhoeks spent a year in Denmark where she lived with three different families while attending school, learning the language and the culture. One of her most memorable experiences was a five-day trip aboard a tall ship learning the aspects of sailing and teamwork. Vogell spent a year in Ecuador, is now proficient in Spanish, and has seen spectacular flora, fauna

and animals in the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands. With visiting doctors from the U.S., Vogell helped with cleft palate surgeries and then assisted with speech therapy after the surgeries. She also was a translator for the doctors and families. A year abroad is not only an exciting adventure but is a chance to become immersed in a different culture. Anyone interested in one-month or year-long exchange programs can attend a Rotary Club information meeting at Nanaimo District Secondary School on Wednesday (Sept. 19) at 7 p.m.

It happens all the time. First you see the flashing lights in your rear-view mirror, then you hear the siren. It’s an ambulance coming up quickly with lights and siren on. What do you do? When minutes can affect a patient’s outcome, B.C. Ambulance Service paramedics use lights and siren to reach their destination as quickly as possible – whether it’s getting to a patient or getting a patient to hospital. Remember: ◆ Stay alert while driving. Avoid distractions and keep the noise level down in your vehicle. ◆ Signal, move to the side of the road and come to a safe stop – this is required in B.C. ◆ Don’t block or drive on the shoulder of the road. Stop, so others can pull over as well. ◆ All traffic moving in both directions

must stop (except on a divided highway when the emergency vehicle is on the opposite side). ◆ It’s illegal to follow an ambulance or any emergency vehicle responding to a call. Stay at least 150 metres behind. “ Pa r a m e d i c s a re intently focused on

Bucs can skate with league’s best I

JR. B HOCKEY team beaten 3-2 by champions. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Buccaneers might be an expansion team, but they’re not many skating strides behind the league’s best team. The city’s new junior B hockey team played an early-season benchmark game on Thursday, losing 3-2 to the Victoria Cougars at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The Cougars (3-0) are the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s defending champions and have scored 20 goals in their three wins so far this season. The Bucs (2-1) were right there with the visitors, however, hitting two posts in the dying minutes as they tried furiously to tie it up. “That’s good we showed that heart,” said Travis Briggs, team captain. Brad Knight, coach of the Buccaneers, said he generally liked his players’ performance except for one 10-minute stretch in the second period where they got running around a little bit. “I really thought we finished the third [period] well and finished strong,” said Knight. “That’s good signs, it’s all good signs. Everything’s pointing in the right direction.”

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo Buccaneers player Jake Calverley brings the puck out of his own end during Thursday’s Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League game against the Victoria Cougars at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The visitors won 3-2.

Quentin McShane tied the game 1-1 early in the second period when he found room to skate into the slot and get away a backhander. After the Bucs got down 3-1 midway through the third period, Dylan Moore was strong on the puck to get himself into scoring position and roofed a shot to make things interesting. Briggs said the Buccaneers looked at Thurs-

day’s game as a test. “We were competing with them just fine…” he said. “We’ve got more speed and strength. We can outplay them physically, we know that, so if we get rolling five-on-five and stay out of the box against this team we’ll be completely fine.” The Bucs have high enough expectations for themselves that they’re not necessarily big believ-

ers in moral victories. “I never want to teach a kid that losing is all right, within reason,” said Knight. “At the same time, I thought we responded well, I thought we showed some good signs … We’re a young team, we’re going to expect to have these kind of nights. But we skated with the defending champions and we’re going to hang around.”

GAME ON … The Buccaneers played the Campbell River Stor m on Friday after press time. Nanaimo’s next VIJHL action is Thursday (Sept. 20) when the Oceanside Generals visit the NIC for a 7:45 p.m. game … To see another 15 action photographs from Thursday’s game, please visit www. nanaimobulletin.com/ sports. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Clippers hop onto home ice The Nanaimo Clippers want to make it a championship season, and to do so, they’ll need to beat teams like the Powell River Kings. The Clippers, hosts of next spring’s Western Canada Cup, play their 2012-13 home opener tonight (Sept. 15) at Frank Crane Arena against the Kings. T h e K i n g s h ave won the B.C. Hockey League’s Coastal Conference banner the last four seasons in a row; the Clippers won the two before that. “It’ll be a battle for sure, and they are the defending champions of our conference, so we look forward to starting by taking on the top dogs,” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers coach. “It should be a great game.” GAME ON … The Clips and Kings face off at 7 p.m. tonight at Frank Crane Arena. Tickets will be available at the door … Tonight’s game is the only action of the weekend for the Clippers … A season preview of the Nanaimo Clippers appeared in Thursday’s News Bulletin and can still be accessed at www. nanaimobulletin.com/ sports. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Schools cheer on sports stars

The start of fall is just a week away, so time to get back into routine and resume the Thorpe Report in its usual Saturday place. As usual, it’s hard to believe that summer went by so quickly. And on a similar note, I have to wonder where the 32 years have gone since I first started producing this column… In any case, holidays are now done and a new school year is underway. So this week, let’s take care of some unfinished business and acknowledge and congratulate local high school students who earned special recognition for their athletic achievements at the end of the last school year. Due to the labour dispute and resulting job action at the time, some secondary schools did not have their usual year-end athletic banquet, but most did recognize their top athletes. Dover Bay Secondary last June honoured outstanding athletes from each grade level. Athletic director David Nelson sends word that Grade 8 winners were Max Reed, Miles Huynh and Jeff Webb for males, along with Hannah Ross, Elise Angelucci and Nyree McGonigle for females. Winners from Grade 9 were Christian Wigmore, Thomas Oxland and Peter

Oxland for males, with and Kaitlyn Franklin Faye Tuck the female sharing the honour of winner. Chosen from junior female athlete Grade 10 were Robof the year. Named as bie Calvin and Emily male senior athlete of Shires. From Grade 11, the year was Bradley the outstanding male Jenks, while senior athlete was Keegan female awards went to Lang and the outstand- Mariah Van Sickle and ing female athletes Taelar Keir. Coaches were McKawards enzie Nicks were preTHORPE and Gabby sented to REPORT Jeffrey. Chelsea Ian Thorpe Grade 12 Clark and Columnist recipients Dustin were Jon Olsen and Bethell, named as Sean McKthe Welenzie, Vanlington essa Yates, academic Grace Tuck athlete of and Jamie the year Bassett. were Nicole Other special athLangford and Jin Han. letic presentations at At Woodlands SecDover saw Brandon ondary last year, Zed Kumar and Spencer Malenica was the Hiemstra named as athletic director. That recipients of the Neal school chose to only McCormick spirit give out a year-end of sport award. The athlete of the year Bruce Mitchell athaward for senior girls letic leadership award and boys, Ksenia went to Hanna Scott, Malenica and Erik while the Jeet Purhar Van Waes. Award was shared by Adam LaForest Amy Hsueh and Spenwas athletic director cer Hiemstra for their at Nanaimo District participation in over a Secondary School. He dozen different school passed along news sports. that plaques were Over at Wellington presented to the top Secondary, athletic male and female athdirector Nicole McRae letes from different reports that Grade 8 grade levels. As Grade female athlete of the 8 students, Sarah year was Alyssa Mous- Lundy and Amelia seau and Grade 8 male athlete of the year was Joseph Almoete. Tyler Radelja was the school’s junior male athlete of the year, with Ally Keir

Kazanowski shared the top female award, with Lucas De Vries named as top Grade 8 male athlete. From the junior age level, Miryam Basset and Jeremie Cheng were athletes of the year. Eric Lindsay received the nod as senior male athlete of the year and Leigh Richardson as senior female athlete of the year. From out at Cedar Secondary, athletic director Rick Hart passed along news of year-end sports awards at that school. Honours for females went to Hannah Stannard as athlete of the year from Grade 8, Stefanie Talboys and Hailey Bradley as top junior girls and Megan Cawthorne as outstanding senior female athlete. Outstanding male athletes from Cedar were Colton Jajeunesse and Josh Bailey in Grade 8, Josh Seward and Victor Trinh as best junior athletes and Brandan McCarthy as top senior athlete. Whatever your sport, a reminder in closing to play your hardest, play fair and show good sportsmanship. ◆ Ian Thorpe writes about sports Saturdays.

Sloan

William “Jackâ€? June 9, 1932 – Sept. 8, 2012 Jack was born in Vancouver to David Sloan and Betty Sloan Antonenko. As a young child, he spent his early years moving to various towns throughout B.C. At age 12, he left school and began his ďŹ rst job working in the woods. At age 17, Jack met the love of his life, Margaret and so began an incredible journey. Life was not always easy but Jack was a resourceful, creative provider for his family, eventually establishing Sloan’s Heating Services. Music was an important part of Jack’s life especially Bluegrass and “Old Timeâ€? ďŹ ddle music. He was very talented at playing the autoharp and loved to sing. Jack delighted in the chaotic, joyful wackiness of family gatherings, often being the prime instigator of practical jokes and pranks and would entertain family and friends with elaborate storytelling. Jack is predeceased by son, Wayne Sloan and grandson, Ryan Sloan. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Margaret Sloan and daughters, Trish Crumpton (Keith) and Shirley Nicholson (Chris); grandchildren: Sean (Jamie), Taryn (Andrew), Kailynd, David (Shilo), Kyle (Andrea), Mike (Teri), Steven (Oona), Mike and Cindy. A celebration of Jack’s life will be held on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at the Wellington Community Hall, 3922 Corunna Ave. beginning at 2.00 p.m. In lieu of owers a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society would be greatly appreciated and please take this time to give each other a hug. â€œâ€Śand another thing‌â€?

Pritam Singh Minhas was born on August 17, 1918 in the village of Padhiana, District Jallandhar, in the province of Punjab, India. He was the youngest of six children. After ďŹ nishing Technical High School, he joined the Royal Indian Air Force on June 22, 1935 in Lahore. He served in areas of present-day Pakistan such as: Chaklala, Rawalpindi, Risalpur, Karachi, Kohat, and Lahore, all the way up until India’s Independence. He retired in 1973 from the Indian Air Force as a Honourary Flight Lieutenant. From 1947 to his retirement in 1973, he served the IAF in Ambala, Tambaram (Madras,now Chenai), Bangalore, Kanpur, and retired from Chandigarh. In 1974 he came to Canada and enjoyed trips to India every winter until 2008 when he was no longer able to make the journey due to health reasons. He cherished his military career, wore his poppy with pride, and participated in many Remembrance Day parades. Pritam Singh was predeceased by his wife, Swarn Kaur, his son, Achhar Singh, and his daughter, Dr. Surinder Kaur Parmar. He is survived by his children Tirath (Harinder) and Dhavinder (Samir), his grandchildren Paminder (Karishma), Parmjit P.J. (Sarah), Jasbir, Nina (Archie), Harminder (Geetika), Gurjeet (Paul), Amanda (Darren), Aaron, Harjit, and Gurpreet, as well as, great-grandchildren: Marlee, Roman, Keerat, Amrit, and another one on the way. The family would especially like to thank the wonderful nurses and home support workers from the Nanaimo & District Home Support Services who helped us take care of Babajee at home, as well as, the staff at the NRGH Palliative Care Unit for all your hard work and compassion.

He will be greatly missed.

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

T

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

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

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