New festival rolls into Oak Bay Community Bike Festival celebrates ‘all things bike’ with tune-ups, rides and workshops Tim Collins News staff

The Oak Bay Community Bike Festival, slated for Willows Beach Park on Sept. 22 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. is the perfect time to "celebrate everything bike", according to Janet Barclay, manager of Recreation Program Services for Recreation Oak Bay. "We're expecting several hundred people to attend this free event, and we know that it's going to be a lot of fun for everyone," she said. "It's a chance to promote the use of bikes as a method of transportation, a form of recreation, a path to physical fitness and even as a competitive sport. Bikes are very versatile and offer a range of uses and benefits." The event is planned to coincide with Participaction's Sport Day Canada and is Oak Bay's contribution to the event. "A lot of people are passionate about cycling," said Barclay. "We're happy to grow our event from that passion." The day boasts a diverse range of activities for riders of all ages and skill levels. Lister Farrar, a coordinator for the event, says one of the highlights of the day will be the three workshops planned at Willows Beach. The first of these will be hosted by the Margaret Jenkins School Bike Club and features a series of ramps, bridges and teeter totters upon which beginner riders can hone their balance and riding skills. That activity will be suitable for children as young as age seven. A second clinic, hosted by the Monterey School Mountain Bike Club, provides a similar, but more challenging course for older riders. Finally, a clinic will be held on the sport of cycle-cross. "That's sort of a cross between road riding and off-road free riding," explained Farrar. "It's a great sport that isn't as extreme as free riding, yet incorporates some of the challenges of that activity." Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Construction plans for the new Oak Bay High school got one step closer to approval on Sept. 10, as four bylaws required to clear the way for rezoning the appropriate properties were reviewed at a public hearing and received third reading. All that’s required for the rezoning to be complete and for the project to proceed is for the bylaw amendments to be adopted by council at its Sept. 24 meeting. Third reading was passed despite misgivings expressed by 14 area residents who submitted a letter of concern to the municipality. They maintain that the parking facilities planned for the new school and accompanying facilities would be inadequate for the many activities taking place at the site. They cited particular concern about the after school use of the parking lot for sporting events and evening events in the school gymnasium, stating that resulting on-street parking might become a “source of problems and friction between residents, the staff of Oak Bay High and the municipality.�

Fairway

While Mayor Nils Jensen acknowledged the concerns of the residents, he pointed out that the number of parking spots available within the plan is an increase from what is currently available. “We also heard representation from the Bays United Football Club, who will be using the (adjacent) fields. They had their own concerns that an increased number of parking spots would take away green space and jeopardize the future of the soccer field and rugby field at the site,� said Jensen. A proposed amendment to the plan that was made at the public meeting, and which would have seen the number of parking spots increased from 195 to 225, was defeated allowing the plan to go ahead as written. Jensen said that a covenant between the school board and the municipality is being drafted and will help clarify some of the outstanding issues regarding parking. Other parts of the bylaw amendments regarding building height were given third reading with no opposition. “The school board has voluntarily drawn back the building from the property line,� Jensen said. “The shadow studies have shown that the building heights have little or no effect on the shadow cast by the new building.�

The original project agreement between the Ministry of Education and the Greater Victoria school district was signed on March 8. It allows the replacement of the existing high school with a new school and a Neighbourhood Learning Centre. The new facility will not only accommodate the 1,300 students of Oak Bay High (plus approximately 100 international students) but will provide day care facilities and space to host seniors’ programs and other leisure activities under the management of Oak Bay Parks and Recreation. The existing 1957 gymnasium at the high school will be retained and renovated to allow for the creation of a performing arts theatre and drama support space for use by both the school and the community-atlarge. That aspect of the development was made possible by a $1 million contribution from the district of Oak Bay. It’s anticipated that the request for proposals for the school’s construction will close in January of 2013 with the contract for construction awarded by March. Groundbreaking for the new school will occur sometime in April. More information on the new high school project can be found at oakbay.sd61.bc.ca. reporter@vicnews.com

Bus union votes to OK strike vote Daniel Palmer News staff

About three-quarters of Greater Victoria’s 650 transit operators and workers voted 98 per cent in favour of taking a strike vote, should talks with B.C. Transit break down in the coming weeks. “We have no intentions of having a strike vote right now,” said Ben Williams, Canadian Auto Workers Local 333 president. “We understand the dependence on B.C. Transit and the hassle that would cause the riders, and it’s definitely a last resort,” he said. Union representatives returned to the bargaining table with B.C. Transit last week. Negotiations previously broke off after union and B.C. Transit reps failed to agree on reasonable wage increases, contracting out and contract language, Williams said. Additional bargaining dates are scheduled into October. The union has been without a collective agreement since March 31. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Grade 12 Oak Bay High student Grace Hatherill gets ready to lose her locks for the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. Hatherill has already raised more than $1,500 herself for the school’s annual fundraiser. Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Students go all-out for sick kids Laura Lavin News staff

Grace Hatherill is excited to graduate from Oak Bay High this year. In the first of many grad activities planned, early next month she will line up with her classmates to have her grad photo taken. One thing will be missing though – the days are numbered for Hatherill’s waist-length hair. “I’m shaving my head for Cops for Cancer,” the 17-year-old said. She and about 200 other Oak Bay students have already begun their efforts to raise cash for this year’s Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. The tour, which begins on Sept. 22 and will take 17 riders on a 1,000-kilometre ride down Vancouver Island, raises money for pediatric cancer research and Camp Goodtimes – a summer camp for kids with cancer. “I’ve had long hair all through school and I have a friend who goes to Camp Goodtimes,” Hatherill said. Hatherill met her friend when she was living on the Sunshine Coast, before the girl’s life was changed by

cancer at a young age. “She started going there when she was seven,” Hatherill said. “Now she’s a camp leader.” Hatherill’s personal experience led her to join Oak Bay High’s team of fundraisers who host several events to help bring their donation total up.

Events at-a-glance ■ Silent Auction – Thursday Sept. 20, East gym, 6:30 to 9 p.m. ■ Bottle Drive – Saturday Sept. 22, East gym at 9 a.m. on the field. ■ Bingo Night – Tuesday Sept. 25, East gym, 7 to 9 p.m. ■ Community Bake Sale – Saturday Sept. 29, Oak Bay Avenue, outside Pharmasave, 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. ■ Benefit Concert – Sunday Sept. 30, 7 to 9 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.), West auditorium.

“Our slogan for this year is, Cops for Cancer 2012: Teamwork makes the dream work,” said Maria Talalaeva, media relations leader for the Oak Bay High Cops for Cancer campaign. “We are putting so much effort into making this dream of ours work.” The head shave event takes place Sept. 27, a week before grad photos. “I’ll be bald for grad,” she said. And, so far, she will be the only girl. Six other female students have agreed to cut their hair short, but Hatherill is going all the way to reach her personal fundraising goal of $2,000. The school is aiming to beat last year’s total of just over $45,000. To donate to Hatherill go to copsforcancerbc.ca and click on ‘support a fundraiser’. “A few key things the Cops for Cancer team want to stress is our need for support in the community, as we are also doing canvassing, and have set up Internet donations through our Oak Bay website as well,” Talalaeva said.

Third try for vilified UVic parkade Kyle Slavin News staff

The University of Victoria will, for the third time in 14 months, attempt to garner Saanich council’s support to build a parkade on campus. Councillors tabled the plans twice before, in August and October of last year, because they felt the community wasn’t properly consulted. Both meetings lasted more than four hours and drew streams of angered residents voicing concerns about the parkade’s height, location and expected traffic impacts. “It’s been a good lesson for helping UVic understand that with such a substantial development, it effects the greater community,” said Coun. Paul Gerrard. A third meeting was held Monday night, after the News’ press deadline. “I think UVic should’ve heard the first time (council tabled the project)

Despite not having been on council, Wade was well aware of the reasons council took issue with the parkade twice before. “With a project of this nature you’re never going to have everybody thrilled with the actual outcome. But the process by which we reach it is critical,” she said. While the process was more thorough this time around, opposition to the project still exists. Council’s agenda package included a number of letters from area residents concerned about the project’s size, location and traffic impacts. “I have lived in (the Cadboro Bay) neighbourhood most of my life and it is only in the last few years that UVic seems to be a poor neighbour having little regard for their neighbours,” wrote Karen Lightbody in a letter to Saanich.

OUR VIEW

Wages need to match inflation With B.C. government workers, University of Victoria non-teaching staff and ICBC staff on rotating picket lines, and now with bus drivers threatening to do the same, labour unrest looks to be hitting a tipping point, if not across the province, at least in the capital city. It’s hard to blame union negotiators for rolling out pickets, After years of ‘net or the threat of after years of zero’ real incomes pickets, austerity and limited or zero wage and are shrinking benefit increases, imposed in the face of a struggling economy. B.C. Government and Services Employees Union, for one, isn’t happy with a proposed three per cent wage hike over two years. Increases that don’t keep up with inflation consign workers in the public and private sector to rollbacks in spending power. At the same time as people are seeing their real incomes drop, household goods, power, water, housing and fuel certainly aren’t getting cheaper, especially in the Capital Region, with its historically high cost of living. Now the B.C. government is freezing hiring and cutting management salaries with the expectation of $389 million less in natural gas revenues. More belt-tightening is likely, and as new Finance Minister Mike de Jong noted, the government will review its bargaining mandate with public sector unions. After years of living under “net zero” something has to give. Having tens of thousands of workers with ever-shrinking buying power only exacerbates the cycle of a declining economy. It’s simple economics to know that the overall economy improves when consumers are secure in their work, and inflation isn’t outpacing salaries. But under four or five years of stagnating wages, people will always spend less on consumer goods, or will assume more debt. There’s no clear answer to bringing the economy back to buoyancy, but having wage hikes that match inflation is a start. What do you think?

One of the bills jammed through by the B.C. Liberals in the hectic legislative session this spring was to do away with another of those federal-provincial overlaps that make industrial development so slow and difficult. Ottawa has sole authority to regulate reserve lands, but agreed to delegate that to B.C. and the Haisla, allowing them to pioneer the latest agreement. This is a major breakthrough, not just in the industrial development of northern B.C. but in dismantling the century-old logjam of aboriginal resource claims. At the centre of Premier Christy Clark’s much-promoted jobs plan is the target of having three LNG export terminals and associated pipelines in production by 2020. That now looks like a more realistic target. But the jobs and revenues won’t arrive in time to save the B.C. Liberals from their current predicament. – Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Fran Aitkens, left, and Isabel Corduavon Specht give each other a heartfelt hug at Willows Beach as they get ready to kayak to Gyro Park beach and back to raise money for cancer research and prevention. The duo, who met and became friends while getting cancer treatment, had never kayaked before, but share a newfound belief that they can accomplish anything.

LETTERS Science on thin ice ICBC rates will increase Your editorial Friday (Walking on thin ice, Sept. 14) plumbed new depths of global warming hysteria. The Arctic is back in 1920s and 30s territory. The Antarctic, where most of the world’s sea ice is located, has its 13th highest ice area ever measured. And the rest of your editorial is just as inaccurate. Take a look at actual sea level rise – it’s virtually nonexistant. The drought in the U.S. this year was less severe than droughts in the 1980s, much less the 1930s, and largely offset by a wet, cold summer in

Northern Europe. CO2 is certainly a greenhouse gas and increased concentrations are likely to raise global temperature, but not by much. The models which suggest otherwise are filled with uncertainty, data issues and the absence of actual observation; they cannot form a sound basis for anything but a wait-and-see attitude. To formulate policy based on science as immature and uncertain as “climate science” is a recipe for getting it wrong. Jay Currie Oak Bay

Re: Are we loaning our money to ICBC? (Letters, Sept. 11). We wanted to let your reader know that the British Columbia Utilities Commission announced their approval of our basic insurance rate change on Aug. 16. This followed their approval of this rate change on an interim basis, effective from Feb. 1. The increase is the first for basic insurance in five years, and means the majority of our customers

will pay about $27 more than they did last year. To put that in perspective, it’s only $9 more than they paid in 2008 due to rate decreases over the past four years. We remain committed to providing customers with the best insurance coverage at the lowest possible price. Mark Blucher Senior Vice President, Insurance ICBC

So your child is the proud owner of a pair of glasses! You should be aware that those glasses, at any given time, could be knocked to the floor, stepped on, sat on, squished in the bottom of a backpack, or even used as a sling shot. To ensure your child understands how important it is to treat his or her eyewear responsibly, here are other ideas to prolong the life of a pair of glasses: Make it an open and shut case. When the glasses aren’t in use, keep them safely tucked inside a hard case, marked with the child’s name and telephone number. Be a clean freak. Lenses should be cleaned at least once a day with warm soapy water or an appropriate lens cleaner – never wipe your lenses when they are dry! Jump in with both hands. Remind your child never to remove his or her glasses with only one hand – this is often the cause of many a misaligned and uncomfortable frame. Get adjusted. Glasses that stay in good shape are glasses that are readjusted from time to time, particularly if pressure marks appear on your child’s nose or behind his or her ears. And here’s a piece of good news: today’s eyeglasses are sturdier than ever, and meant to withstand general wear and tear.

Climate scientists lash out at federal cutbacks Edward Hill News staff

A leading Canadian climate scientist slammed the search for the long-lost 1845 Franklin Expedition as a veiled front for future oil and gas extraction in the high Arctic. Andrew Weaver, a professor in the University of Victoria school of earth and ocean sciences, called the search for the HMS Erebus and HMS Terror a “joke” during an off-the-cuff speech at a noontime rally on Friday in Victoria. “The Franklin Expedition is using tax dollars to seismically survey the ocean bottom for future oil and gas exploration. That has nothing to do with science,” Weaver said. “It’s all

about oil and gas exploration. They are mapping out the floor.” Researchers in white lab jackets, Raffi Cavoukian, a.k.a. Raffi the children’s entertainer, Saanich-Gulf Islands MP Elizabeth May and Saanich South MLA Lana Popham, joined Weaver in denouncing cutbacks in environmental research spending, and the fear cultivated among federal scientists about speaking publicly about research that might undermine the Conservative government’s economic goals. “Morale at federal government science labs is at an all-time low,” Weaver said to several hundred people gathered at Yates and Government streets, outside a federal building. “What’s happening in Canada is science is

happening behind closed doors ... and is only made public if it fits with the government’s agenda.” Weaver, among other speakers, also noted that federal scientists often aren’t authorized to speak with the media, and that instead, journalists receive scripted “media lines” on research from federal communications officers. “We used to laugh about what was happening to science in the George W. Bush era. It pales in comparison to what is going on now (in Canada),” Weaver said. Critics of the Conservative government argue that federal economic policy trumps science and environmental monitoring. Politicians at the rally pointed to cuts in long-running Arc-

tic program to monitor the ozone layer, cuts in staff to monitor the health of marine ecosystems and sea life, and cuts across the board to federal agencies which monitor natural resources and environmental compliance. “Canadians are being put at risk by this shortsighted, reckless Stephen Harper government,” May Don Denton/News staff told the crowd. A speaker who donned a fake UVic climate scientist moustache and beard, and who Andrew Weaver speaks was confirmed to be a research during a rally highlighting scientist out of the Institute of cutbacks to scientific Ocean Sciences in Sidney, told the programs, institutions crowd the Conservative govern- and research. ment cut funding for a $12-million national program that monitored pol- in marine food chain lutants in the ocean that accumulate and ecosystem. “The country has terminated the eyes and ears on the ocean pollution front,” he said, referring to himself jokingly as Dr X. “Dr. X” told the News that he remains an employee of KE BI the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, and could be subject to legal 148 repercussions for speak98¢ 2 00 ing publicly. 6 9 9 99 2 2012 Routan amount shown As for the 2012 Franklin Expedition, the government said in August ffor our new that it is indeed mapping the Arctic ocean floor as part of ongoing surveys conducted in 2008, 2010 and 2011 by Parks Canain today’s paper! da’s underwater archaeology service.

A new face at the helm plus a changed rehearsal venue could culminate in a collaborative and inspiring season for the Victoria Choral Society. Music director Brian Wismath started with the organization in May and spent the summer planning the 2012-13 season. “It’s a large organization. The choir has about 130 to 145 people,” he said, likening it to the Titanic. “Manoeuvring can be a challenge at times. … It takes a big background crew to make sure things move smoothly.” A change in policy meant a change in practice space for the Victoria Choral Society this season. The audition choir moves from Holy Cross Church to the Oak Bay United Church on Mitchell Street. “Oak Bay gives us the opportunity to connect with the community which is part of our mandate,” said Wismath. “It’s been a lot of work finding a new location. There’s only so many spaces in the city that can hold as many people as we have. … It’s all very much appropriate and in line with our upcoming season which is full of newness.” The new leader has a rich choral background. He has served as director of the University of Victoria Chamber Singers and Tucson Masterworks Chorale; as associate conductor of Orpheus Choir of Toronto,

A first aid station for bikes (for those machines that need a little mechanical tweaking) will be set up at the park as well. “We might not be able to fix the major problems, but we can at least tell you what’s wrong and needs to be done,” said Farrar. That station will be provided by Oak Bay Bicycles. For those individuals who just want to go for a ride, two options will be offered.

He's an avid cyclist who annually clocks more than 3,500 kilometres on his own bike and has spent the last four summers on biking vacations, here and in Europe. “This council is hugely supportive of cycling as a way to reduce our carbon footprint,” Jensen said. “And this is going to be a great event – it'll be fun.” A more challenging group ride will be hosted by the Triple Shot

Cycling Club, where riders will learn the etiquette of riding in a group and experience the enjoyment and camaraderie of this type of ride. In addition to all of these activities, the event will also give Oak Bay residents a chance to meet Olympic bronze medalist Gillian Carleton and Olympic gold medalist Simon Whitfield. “These athletes are great role models,” Jensen said. “How often do you get to go for a bike ride with an Olympic champion?” More information on the Community Bike Festival can be found at recreation.oakbaybc. org. reporter@vicnews.com

ber of the JDF club, is the first vice-president of Bowls Canada, and is a rep for Bowls B.C. He’s helped assemble a Canadian squad that includes three Victoria produced players, the Battles sisters Heather and Shannon, and Steven Santana.

David Mathie is the coach of the Canadian team hosting U.S.A. for the North American Challenge this week, Sept. 20 to 24, at the Juan de Fuca Lawn Bowling Club, where Mathie is a member.

The Juan de Fuca Lawn Bowling Club is hosting a world-championship warm-up this week. Tomorrow (Sept. 20) through Saturday, the Canadian lawn bowling team will host U.S.A. in the North American Challenge. “It’s a chance for Canada’s top bowlers to play the top bowlers of the U.S.A. in preparation for the upcoming world championships,” said David Mathie, head coach of the Canadian team. The 2012 World Championships take place Nov. 24 to Dec. 9 in Adelaide, Australia, and Mathie will lead Canada there too. “The NAC is a competition that cements the relations between us and the U.S.A., we’re great friends and like to get together.” Locally, Mathie is also a mem-

“Bowls has taken me to places all over Canada and the world.” – Heather Battles “I came from Oak Bay but Burnside (LBC) had the junior program that helped us achieve national and international levels,” said Heather. The former B.C. singles champion is taking time away from her doctorate studies at McMaster University in Hamilton this week. “Bowls has taken me to places all over Canada and the world, and I’ve met so many people because of it.” The NAC schedule is split into two divisions. Each country will field five-player men’s and wom-

en’s teams into the premier Folkins competition. There’s also fiveplayer men’s and women’s Jarvis teams. The difference between the teams is the Folkins players will go to the world championships, while the Jarvis division was created to develop future national team players. Heather and Shannon will play on Team Jarvis, and are in the mix to represent Canada at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. Shannon lives in Vancouver where she plays alongside Steven Santana, another Victoria raised player. Santana won the national singles championship in 2011 and was third in 2012. He’ll represent Canada on the men’s Folkins squad this week, and he’s also been named to throw the lead bowls on Canada’s triples and fours teams at the world championships. The NAC begins Thursday with pairs and triples matches and moves into fours, triples, and singles play for Friday and Saturday. sports@vicnews.com

Russian sniper will debut with Royals Victoria Royals open WHL season in Vancouver

“You never want to give up a younger guy who you haven’t seen his best yet, which is why the trade took a whole week,” Hope said. “But it was tough to get (Kisio) interested in someone else, he had his mind set on (Jones).” With Gogolev, the Royals are now at their cap for overage spots with three 20-year-olds, Jamie Crooks and Tyler Stahl being the other two. Goalie Patrik Polivka is the other import. Gogolev will be in the lineup for the Royals first game of the regular season in Vancouver on Friday (Sept. 21), and the first home game, Saturday night, 7:05 p.m. versus the Vancouver Giants. The Royals won the final preseason game, and the only one held in Victoria, 4-2 over the Giants on Saturday. Logan Nelson, Brandon Magee, Jamie Crooks and Ben Walker (empty net goal) scored for the Royals.

Travis Paterson News staff

Victoria Royals general manager Cam Hope is the first to admit he can’t count to 10 in Russian. Hope and Jeff Harris, the director of hockey ops and communications, picked up the Royals newest player, Russian import Alex Gogolev, from the airport on the weekend. “Alex tried to teach us to count to 10 in Russian, and even with a 30 minute drive we couldn’t get it, so it’s safe to say his English is much better than my Russian,” Hope said. Though his English is still improving, Gogolev can at least count to 57. That’s how many points the slick skating forward totalled as a 19-year-old rookie with the Calgary Hitmen last year, as he scored 25 goals and 32 assists. The 20-year-old was acquired by trade on Saturday in exchange for forward Zane Jones, 18, and a conditional sixth round pick in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft. The Royals also got a fourth round pick in the 2013 draft. Gogolev became available because of the WHL numbers game. The Hitmen had five over age players, with just three spots, and three imports vying for two spots. “Gogolev is very skilled, but he was a two-spot player, a 20-year-old import,” Hope said. “We’re getting a player who is exceptionally smooth, a smart player with an excellent shot who can be a game breaker.” And to get, you have to give. Jones was one of the few promising 18-year-

Czech protector Rookie goalie Patrik Polivka’s save percentage of 0.963 and goals against average of 1.41 per game are the best among all WHL goalies with 120 minutes played in the preseason.

Russian import Alex Gogolev brings an elite skill set to the Royals this year. olds developed in the Royals/Bruins system. Last year as a 17-year-old he recorded 14 goals and 32 points, and was one of the Royals best players in all four playoff games. Discussions between Hope and Hitmen GM Kelly Kisio began during the WHL GMs meetings in Calgary last week and carried on until Saturday.

Defenceman Tyler Stahl won’t be available as he’s serving a six-game suspension for a checking to the head penalty against the Kelowna Rockets on Sept. 7.

Longtime office coffee supplier proud to go green Family dinner night aids Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation Oughtred Coffee and Tea has been operating carbon-neutral since 2009, an achievement that earned it a 2012 Capital Regional District Ecostar award for climate action. The company, which owner John Oughtred began as EzeDon Descoteau Brew Coffee Services in Biz Beat Victoria 39 years ago and grew across the province, has taken its total estimated emissions from 517 tonnes in 2009 down to 387 tonnes. At the same time, its landfill waste dropped 75 per cent while energy costs were reduced by more than eight per cent. Oughtred’s carbon footprint was reduced through expanding its recycling programs, eliminating paper transactions, streamlining delivery routes, reducing air travel and installing a heat redistribution system. To find out more about how the company greened its operation, visit oughtred.com.

OAK BAY NEWS - Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Rising deficit prompts hiring freeze The B.C. government is freezing management salaries in ministries, 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 last 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 freeze 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 has staged a series of one-day strikes since rejecting a 3.5-per-cent wage increase over

two years. De Jong said he intends to present a balanced budget in February for the 201314 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 gas 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 provide reserves needed for liquefied natural gas export facilities proposed for the north coast. editor@vicnews.com
