information for research projects on the Peninsula from the pages of the Review. “To learn the history of this area, it’s categorical – you need the Review,” he says. He likens the goings-on in early 20thcentury Sidney, for example, to the scenario featured in the period movie about the same era, The Music Man, starring Robert Preston and Shirley Jones.

The extent of Arctic sea ice is hitting record lows, making now as good a time as any to add more gear to monitor the ocean environment in the far North. The University of Victoria’s Ocean Networks Canada consortium plans to install a underwater sea floor observatory in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, this month. The technology is similar to the group’s Neptune and Venus underwater observatories off the east and west coasts of Vancouver Island, although it will be much smaller. The Cambridge Bay observatory will hold devices measuring water salinity, temperature, pressure a high-resolution camera, and a critical acoustic device that detects the thickness of ice. An onshore weather station will be linked to the system. This collection of devices will be housed on a frame at the bottom of the bay at Cambridge Bay, linked to the shore via a fibre optic cable armoured for cold temperatures. Ideally, and similar to the Neptune and Venus networks, this mini-observatory will stream live data to the world through the Internet, if the installation team can plug into an Internet connection. “It’s a challenge,” admits Kate Moran, director of Ocean Networks Canada. “There’s not great communications there. We are working with the Nunavut government to hook into their Internet system.” Cambridge Bay is slated as the home of the Canadian High Arctic Research Station, announced by the federal government in 2007, but the project hasn’t broken ground.

Old technology is made new again at Vantreight Farms Flame weeder technology brought back as farm aims to expand its organics program Devon MacKenzie News staff

Vantreight Farms is turning back the clock on technology in an effort to turn out more organic produce and flowers in coming years. The Vantreights recently purchased a Red Dragon flame weeder from Connecticut and are beginning trials this week on some of their fields. “This is a new technology to us but not new in the fact that it’s been used for years and years all over North America and Europe,� said Ryan Vantreight of the farm equipment. The flame weeder uses small propane burners to scorch weeds growing in fields, rendering them virtually dead but protecting crop seeds and bulbs underground. “When you go over the field with the flamer, the heat on the weed disrupts the weed’s ability to absorb nutrients from the sun,� Vantreight explained. “This is going to be a good replacement for pesticides and

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW - Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Getting up a head of steam Fall threshing weekend at Heritage Acres in Central Saanich harkens back to a simpler, tougher time Steven Heywood News Staff

Mike Klingensmith tosses a few wood blocks into a wall of flame inside the black belly of a steam engine. The engine, while not on any rails, provides the power – all 13 horses of it – to a nearby threshing machine. With a few twists of a knob, Klingensmith releases pressure in the boiler and sets a large wheel into motion, moving a large belt between his engine and the thresher, which rattles and shakes into action. A conveyor starts up and a pair of articulated arms draw hay into the thresher, thrown there by the burly arms of two men on the ends of pitchforks. It’s a decidedly old way of separating the wheat from the chaff, but a tried and true method that has plenty of people looking on and asking the volunteers at the controls how the operation comes together. It was fall threshing weekend Saturday and Sunday at Heritage Acres, run by the Saanich Historical Artifacts Society. In addition to the popular model train rides through the grounds, it was the steam engine’s time to shine. Klingensmith, with his son Hudson, has been operating the 1907 Sawyer steam engine since 2004 or 2005. Plenty of its parts are original, he said, adding it was rebuilt in 2009. A fourth-class operating engineer by trade, Klingensmith said the engine has had a few modern additions made to keep it in running order. Otherwise, it’s in good shape and has been since it was acquired by the society, after years on a working farm on Mayne Island. A few blasts on its whistle and a plume of white-hot steam draws a crowd. The threshing demonstration begins. The steam powers the wheel, the wheel runs a belt to the thresher itself and the wheat fed into the machine spits seeds into a bag and the rest to a bailer. These days, a single machine can do this work on modern farms. For Klingensmith, however, operating these artifacts gives him and other engineers – working or retired – the chance to practice their trade. “It’s great for the health,” he said. “Without this, some of us might not know what to do with ourselves.” editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Sidney was like “River City,” he says, a place where the local pool hall was a gathering point for town merchants to catch up on the news and gossip of the day. And the Review played a part in spreading that news. The paper was a community focal point, he adds. With no TV or radio available early on, that was their communication and their entertainment, outside of playing cards, going to dances or watching silent movies. “This filled in the void of what the (Daily) Colonist and (Victoria) Times were not reporting about the area,” Morrison says. “Often the Review’s stories were subsequently reported in the dailies.” Early on, writers used subtle humour to get their message across, especially in columns detailing residents’ comings and goings. A sense of that humour

“This filled in the void of what the (Daily) Colonist and (Victoria) Times were not reporting about the area. Often the Review’s stories were subsequently reported in the dailies.” – Brad Morrison was in full view in the very first issue, under the heading “Editorial Announcement.” “The Review is a little thing at present,” it said. “But remembering it is yet scarcely out of its swaddling clothes, it will grow bigger and better, let us hope. It goes on to say, “We might mention our newness to the town as an excuse for the meagre news columns of the paper … We might say that the Intelligent Compositor was standing on his ivory dome when he committed

some of the typographical atrocities. Or we might say that the proof reader and his satanic majesty were conniving at our downfall. But we have nothing to say. We ask our readers to accept this poor effort in the spirit it is meant. Bear with us till we get at least a tail hold on the situation, and see if we don’t do better.” For readers who receive home delivery, your newspaper today (Sept. 19) includes a special magazine, The Review: Stories that shaped the last century 1912-2012. It’s a cross-section of items that made the news through the decades, from community reports and political goingson, to wartime drama affecting families in the region. We hope you enjoy thumbing through the pages and glimpsing the Peninsula’s past through the lens of Review writers past and present. editor@peninsula newsreview.com

Children’s Eyewear Care: A primer for parents 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.

Staying calm and clear Ambulance dispatchers help people survive tough moments Natalie North News staff

The first call I answered was a little too easy. A 79-year-old woman in the 3000-block of Douglas St. had a stomach ache. I typed in the Saanich address into the empty field on the monitor in front of me and asked the caller a series of questions about her illness. ProQA, the program used by emergency medical dispatchers for the B.C. Ambulance Service, confirmed the minor sickness, categorized the call as lowpriority and an ambulance was sent out – or at least it would have, had I answered an actual call. Instead, I was responding to Bill Hadden, the emergency medical dispatcher leading me through a media training session in the ambulance service’s Saanich training facility. Despite the low stakes, the pressure was on when Hadden took on his second role of my faux training session – a condensed 10-minute overview of a three-week-long training course. From the seat behind me, Hadden transformed into a caller from a street address I’d never heard of. I asked the

caller and he told me it’s in Boston Bar – a tiny community I admit I had to Google later to locate. The caller’s 78-year-old father had collapsed and wasn’t breathing. After what felt like 20 minutes of scripted questions, I arrived at ProQA’s suggestion: cardiac arrest. The process would take a trained dispatcher 90 seconds to complete, Hadden said. But even with the quickest dispatcher the arrival of an ambulance takes time. In July when Nicholas Woodiwiss’s heart stopped while riding his bicycle in Royal Oak, four bystanders performed life-saving cardiopulmonary respiration. The incident earned bystanders a Vital Link award for the action they took in the time before paramedics arrived. “You need to be reassuring,” Hadden said. “You, yourself need to be calm, confident and clear. You need to direct people even when they’re not confident or losing hope.” Meanwhile, a counter tool had popped up on the monitor. Like a metronome, it set the pace for compressions. I told the caller I’d count out loud while they performed chest compressions.

Leading a caller through CPR isn’t a situation Hadden deals with every day, but after four years on the job, it’s one he’s used to managing. Part of that management involves asking questions exactly as they appear in ProQA while counselling individuals through traumatic events. “You have to know what type of person you’re dealing with. Everyone’s subtly different,” he said. Last year, B.C. Ambulance Service responded to 486,000 events across the province. The service currently employs 3,668 paramedics and dispatchers provincewide, and they’re looking for more. By welcoming media into their training room, the service hopes to attract new members for dispatcher training this month. “(Dispatchers need) the ability to remain calm in very stressful situations and to remain calm with all of the stimulation going on around you,” said Corinne Begg, a provincial dispatch training officer. “We’re looking for someone who’s able to have a lot going on at the same time.” nnorth@saanichnews.com -With files from Kyle Wells

OUR VIEW

Rebirth happening on the Peninsula September marks the time for fresh start on many avenues. Children are back at school, courses and workshops have begun anew at recreation centres and colleges and charitable organizations, their volunteers and staff back from their summer hiatus, begin pounding the drum again for donations. On the latter point, this month September offers a busy one for many opportunities is groups launching to give back campaigns, causing people in our community to stand up and take notice. While police and media riders have been training for months, the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock is ramping up for the start of the two-week ride this weekend, and the accompanying excitement and mayhem that ensues during the Tour’s stops at communities all over Vancouver Island, including Sidney on Oct. 4. An even more longstanding cancer-fighting fundraiser, the Terry Fox Run, happened last weekend in Central Saanich. Organizers implored people to donate for cancer research as participants mimicked, in a small way, Terry’s mileage efforts. The United Way of Greater Victoria kicked off its 2012 campaign last week, with a $6 million goal, and the CIBC Run for the Cure for breast cancer, happens this Sunday. At times it seems we are bombarded by messaging from not-for profits, all of which are well-meaning and deserve assistance. Many such groups are facing serious challenges at a time when government funding is tougher to come by. Some choose to tune out the pleas for help. But thankfully, many more people continue to either donate cash or their time to causes that help people in our community. We encourage you to consider either. Even if your finances don’t allow a donation, your skills and abilities can be put to a valuable task. What do you think?

And on Friday, the Haisla Nation and the B.C. government announced a land-use agreement to develop another LNG export facility on the Douglas Channel near Kitimat. Two proposals in that area have already received federal export permits and financing from global energy players, including Chinese, Japanese and Korean companies. 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.

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW -Wednesday, September 19, 2012

LETTERS Political raises in B.C. should have more oversight T o quote Premier Christy Clark: “I am not going back to taxpayers for more money in order to give government workers a raise. We are in very tough economic times and we have to balance our budget.” First of all, not being a government worker, I am unbiased. However, the sanctimonious tone of the Premier’s statement is mind-boggling. If she is so concerned about going back to taxpayers for a pay raise for government workers, why doesn’t she express those same sentiments when the

politicians vote themselves a substantial wage increase whenever they like? They don’t even have to justify it to anyone, least of all the taxpayers, who are paying for them. Have they ever voted to not to give themselves a raise? That would make a dent in helping to balance the budget. They should be ashamed that they continue to vote themselves raises, regardless of tough economic times, while denying others. But, unfortunately, I don’t think they

are capable of feeling shame. The practice of voting themselves raises needs to be abolished. They are civil servants and should not have this power, with no oversight or justification. This is a practice that is long overdue for change. Why isn’t someone calling for this to be done, if only in the name of fairness, if nothing else? Just last week I read about the Legislative Clerk (supposedly a consultant) in their employ and no one could say exactly what his job was. Where was his job description?

Readers respond: Enbridge pipeline, B.C. election Don’t support the pipeline – in three parts Reader Eli Fricker wants a ‘factual reason’ why he should not support this (Enbridge) project across B.C. As a biologist I can provide him with one, in several parts: (a) It is well understood that the risk of a pipe-line break or leak is not, and can never be, “zero”. Therefore, at some time in the future this will occur, be it sooner or later. There is no such thing as absolute certainty. There is only a probability which is not “zero”, even by making the pipeline-walls a foot thick. We cannot predict the length of time before that would happen, only that it will happen sometime. (b) Given part (a), can we predict that the flora and fauna that accidentally become immersed in the pipe-line material, would survive, or not? Some might, depending upon the amount of the spill. I think most biologists would predict that the biological effects on the ecosystem could be catastrophic for the region impacted. (c) Given the above, and that it could be catastrophic, we have to decide whether we are willing to accept a probable loss, sooner or later, of a portion of the biosphere so that a given petroleum company can sell a product to Asia and make

a lot of money. In case one points out: “well ...... we even take a risk when we cross the road” ...... he has to ask himself whether the risk of getting hit by a car is comparable to the risk of a future devastation of a part of the biosphere and waterways. I don’t think it is. Don K. Edwards Central Saanich

The province needs an election now At the last sitting of the legislature, legislation was being rammed through with no chance of debate. There will now not be a fall sitting, government being conducted by administrative fiat. How is this democratic? The Clark government has no mandate. Its policies are a failure and government is in chaos. We need an election now, not in May 2013. We need democracy. We have anything but. Bert Slater North Saanich

Privatization should lower liquor costs to public While working as a consultant on an engagement with the B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch in 1991, I had

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

SMOKIN’ HOT DEALS

But no, they admit to paying (or I should say taxpayers are paying) him salary and perks, completely unaware of his function. Is it any wonder people have become thoroughly disillusioned with politics, and are failing to vote. The only reason I still vote is that I honour the women who fought so hard to get the vote, but I do it with a heavy heart because I see that greed and hypocrisy thrive in the world of politics.

Bike park gets new shelter Devon MacKenzie News staff

A new shelter and picnic bench at the North Saanich Free Ride Park will offer people a place to relax and mountain bikers a place to fuel up after a long ride in the park. The shelter project, a partnership between the Friends of North Saanich Mountain Bike Park Society and the Peninsula Co-op, was made possible by Co-op donating $10,000 to the cause. “It’s really great to be able to support something in our community like this,� said Co-op board member Patti Hunter. “Not only is it in keeping with our mandate because it’s supporting a local organization, but it’s also fantastic to be able to support something that keeps youth active and outside doing things.� The new installation features a poured cement pad, complete with a built-in water fountain installed by the municipality of North Saanich, a steel roof to keep the elements off and a picnic table made from sturdy, synthetic lumber. The Free Ride park is a fitness park for cyclists of all ages and has been a work in progress for the last eight years, receiving support from North Saanich Council and private donors who have given time, labour and money towards the project. With the new shelter, the park is now 80 per cent complete but still needs $50,000 to finish the last phase, which will connect all the jumps and build an access path.

Carriage biz good fit for Sidney: owners Brentwood Bay-based company looks forward to operating around town Devon MacKenzie News staff

In a large paddock in Brentwood Bay, a dozen or so draft horses graze, play and roam — that is until Black Beauty Line owners Rebecca Spray and Robert Taylor walk towards the fence. As they approach, the horses are drawn to the two and all begin to saunter over to get greetings and pats from Spray and Taylor. “They are big babies,” said Spray of the collection of horses they keep at the property. “We get a lot of them from places where they’ve spent their lives working doing logging or the fair circuits down in Washington state, so to come here is almost like a retirement community for some of them,” she smiled. Spray and Taylor co-own Black Beauty Line which operates horse-drawn carriages in downtown Victoria. The company has been operating since 1979 and enjoys a busy tourist season over the summer. Now, they are hoping to expand their business into the heart of Sidney. “We do enjoy a lot of support in Victo-

ria, so we thought why don’t we try to expand this into Sidney. It’s such an up and coming town and it seems like it’s the destination for many businesses to open satellite locations, so we thought why not us too,” said Taylor of their decision to expand to Sidney. So far the town has been supportive of Spray and Taylor’s application to operate in Sidney, and at their meeting on Aug. 13, council voted to make changes to an existing bylaw that will allow Black Beauty Line to start operating on a trial basis, possibly as soon as early this fall. “We really appreciate people are excited about this,” said Spray. “I think we’re a great fit for Sidney, whether it’s going to be people who want rides for birthdays or weddings, it will be a great place to operate.” No one has actively run carriages in Sidney for years. Council moved to change the wording of the bylaw because it was linked directly to Victoria Single Horse Drawn Carriage Tours Inc., the company that previously held the exclusive licence to operate in Sidney. Among the changes to the bylaw, Spray

and Taylor also noted that the town is opening up a larger area to which they can take the carriages. “The previous bylaw had really limited space in terms of where we could operate, so by opening it up we’ll be able to go further than just Beacon Avenue and First Street,” Taylor said. Spray added that Sidney’s layout, street construction and speed limits are also ideal for their operation. “We drive every day in the streets of James Bay,” she said. “Those streets are so narrow, sometimes you get down there and with cars parked on both sides, if car comes the other way while you’re driving the carriage, it’s like, where do we go? The nice thing about Sidney is it’s already established as a 30 km/h community and the streets are nice and wide. It’s going to be perfect for us.” Spray and Taylor have arranged with the Mary Winspear centre to use their rear parking lot for loading and unloading if they go ahead with a trial run over the fall and winter. reporter@peninsula newsreview.com

Sidney hosting anniversary celebration this weekend Activities and presentations planned for Sunday Devon MacKenzie News staff

A very special diamond anniversary is looming on the horizon of the Peninsula. Come Sept. 23, the Town of Sidney will celebrate 60 years as an incorporated village in style with a party at Beacon Park. “It’s all about celebrating our home,” said Coun. Kenny Podmore about the event. “Having a party like this gives us a chance to celebrate with each other and remember how lucky we are to live in such a special place.” The event, which runs from 1 to 4 p.m., is family-oriented and free of charge,

Podmore noted, and will feature fun and games for everyone. “There’s going to be live music by the Bayside Big Band, there’s going to be face painting, balloon animals and the Tom Thumb Safety Village, and of course there’s going to be cake,” he laughed. “You always have to have cake.” The day, which is sponsored by the Victoria Airport Authority, will also see some special presentations made to members in the community including a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal and the Mayor’s community builder award.

University of Victoria scientists are installing an equipment probe similar to this one off Brentwood Bay in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, to help monitor the decline of sea ice. from all levels of the federal government.” The observatory will contribute data and better understanding of changes in sea ice and the Arctic marine environment. Moran, an expert in Arctic environments, said the permanent loss of sea ice could have profound impacts on global weather systems, such as shifting stable pockets of cold air from the Arctic to more

southern latitudes. “We need more measurements in the Arctic for better predictions of weather patterns and long-term loss of sea ice,” she said. “The significance of having continuous monitoring of the Arctic Ocean cannot be overstated.” The UVic observatory will feed data to the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Centre, which

closely monitors Arctic sea ice levels. The project also aims to connect the school in Cambridge Bay with Brentwood College in Brentwood Bay, which also hosts a UVic ocean observatory. “It’s a neat educational tool students in both environments can use to talk about what they are learning,” Moran said. editor@peninsula newsreview.com

A one-man crusade against smoking Gord Hartshorne, still pained by his mother’s death, hopes to convince more people to butt out Don Descoteau News staff

Gord Hartshorne was seven when a representative from the lung association made a presentation about the dangers of smoking to his class at Deep Cove school. The scare tactics, which the organization used in the early 1970s, worked on the impressionable youngster. He ran home after school and began what would be a 35-plus year campaign trying to convince his mother, Shirley Hartshorne, to quit smoking for the good of her health. Just before the longtime North Saanich resident died in 2009 of complications stemming from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) at age 69, she called Gord to her bedside – he was her primary caregiver in her final three years – and told him, “You were right.” “It was never about being right,” Hartshorne says, at a sitting room table in the North Saanich home he shares with his father.

Hartshorne gets emotional when talking about how, almost to the end, he would have “loving arguments about quitting smoking” with his mom, who only gave up the habit after her diagnosis of COPD in 2006. He recalls her physical appearance in the late stages of her life and the subsequent brief, but intense battle with gall bladder failure that made her final few weeks all but unbearable. “She looked like she had been through some kind of war,” Hartshorne says. “She looked far older than (she was).” Armed with many fond memories of his mother to go with the horrible ones – he also lost his uncle in 2011 to cancer – last week he completed a fourkilometre run around his neighbourhood, an annual event he refers to as the Promise Run. The promise was a commitment he made to his mom before she died, to educate people wherever he could about the risks inherent with smoking.

North Saanich resident Gord Hartshorne, photographed on West Saanich Road before starting his four-kilometre run to raise awareness of lung disease, wants to keep his campaign for clean air going all year round. This month he’s encouraging people to contribute to the B.C. Lung Association.

Smoking-related illnesses have long been in the public eye.

He ran, not to raise funds for the B.C. Lung Association, but to raise awareness of the dangers of smoking, especially for young people just starting out. While he encourages anyone to consider quitting smoking, he is particularly struck seeing young women lighting up. “I can picture my mom’s face in their faces,” he says, noting there is great promise and strength in youth. “When I was a little boy it seemed like there wasn’t anything she couldn’t do. “I just want to tell them we should value our lives, and remind them we know that smoking causes damage.” If Hartshorne had a slogan, he says, it might be, “Quit smok-

Internet seminar aimed at parents Safety workshop will teach ways of reducing risks to kids It is important that parents and caregivers are aware of what their kids see on the internet, who they meet and what they share online. However, it is equally important for parents and caregivers to empower themselves with information on how to reduce the risk

of their child being exposed to this darker side of the internet, including cyber bullying, child luring and other sinister enticements. In an effort to support and educate the community on this timely issue, Central Saanich Police Service and Keating

elementary school are pairing up to present a one-hour seminar for parents focusing on Internet safety. The presentation takes place Thursday, Sept. 27 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Keating elementary in Central Saanich (6843 Central Saanich Rd.) Attendees will

hear from two different speakers over the evening, Cpl. Pat Bryant, a 24-year police veteran and the Central Saanich Police Service youth resource officer, and Mr. Tony Bousquet, the manager of information technology for the municipality of Central Saanich.

Star Cinema fund reaches halfway point Starry Afternoon draws good crowd on a sunny Sunday Steven Heywood News Staff

In three months, Sidney’s Star Cinema has raised $100,000 towards efforts to keep the lights on at the local theatre. Their goal is to reach $200,000. On Sunday, residents and visitors were treated to a free music concert under the bandshell at Beacon Park for A Starry Afternoon, a special event organized by Kenny Podmore to

benefit the movie house. Music was provided by the Bayside Big Band and The Islanders and donations were accepted at the popcorn stand – complete with people dressed as favourite movie characters such as Marilyn Monroe and Han Solo. “Right from the get-go, the community has been so kind to us,” said theatre owner Sandy Oliver. Part of that generosity, she said,

has to do with her late sister, Carolyn Lewis, who died in May. Her sister, she said, was the face of Star Cinema over the years. The theatre is in need of renovation and Oliver said a lot of the money will go towards a new movie projector. They currently use a 35mm projector and have a backup digital one for showing films on their silver screen. The Save the Star Cinema Fund is growing, she said, thanks to local

support. “It’s all about how much people want their own cinema,” said Oliver. “It’s an opportunity to be entertained, to laugh, and that’s what movies are all about.” Teens, children and adults – from the area and elsewhere – have contributed to the fund, Oliver said. Their seat sale is sold out, but people can still lend a hand by visiting www. starcinema.ca or by calling 250-655-3384. “It’s the support, there has been a lot of it from day-to-day,” Oliver said. “People just want to keep their cinema.”

Panthers’ goaltender Justin Samra prepares to deflect a shot during the Panthers game Friday, Sept. 14 at Panorama Recreation Centre. The Panthers picked up the win and Samra was awarded the first star of the game by blocking 27 of 29 shots directed his way.

It’s almost inconceivable to think that Peninsula Panthers defenceman Brett Sjerven would play hockey this season, let alone at the junior level. Sjerven, 18, had significant health issues in May and was hospitalized for several weeks after he underwent surgery to repair a hole that spontaneously formed in his lung. While hospitalized, Sjerven was signed by the Panthers but was not given any promise of ice time. Sjerven began to practice with the squad in late August and although it was what Panthers’ owner, Pete Zubersky calls a “feel good story,” everyone involved within the organization felt he was a long way away from seeing game play. But Sjerven practiced hard and after being scratched for the first three regular season games, he was inserted into the Panthers’ lineup last Friday at home against the Comox Valley Glacier Kings. The Panthers prevailed against the Glacier Kings after goals by Cole Golka, Cody Breitenstein and Zack Smith boosted the Panthers to a 3-2 lead with five minutes left in the game. But the Glacier Kings were press-

ing for the equalizer and Sjerven took things into his own hands when the puck landed on the end of his stick. The young defender took a shot at the net that snuck over the shoulder of Glacier Kings’ goaltender Matthew Mitchell. “I’m sure this was an exciting night for Brett and his family,” said Zubersky. “I thought Brett looked a bit tentative at times, maybe not attacking into the corners early in the game, but he got a bit better as the game went into the later stages and scored a huge goal for the club. I was standing down at that end and it just floated past everyone including the Glacier Kings big goalie.” Sjerven was named third star at the end of the game and skated out to a standing ovation. Justin Samra, making his first start of the season for the Panthers, blocked 27 of 29 shots directed his way and was named the first star. Forward Cole Golka was named second star. The Panthers are back at it at home Friday night, Sept. 21, at the Panorama Recreation Centre when they face the Kerry Park Islanders. Vancouver Canucks’ anthem singer Mark Donnelly will sing O Canada prior to the 7:30 p.m. puck drop. reporter@peninsulanews review.com

B.C.'s new police oversight office is officially in operation, ready to take over investigations of incidents involving police that result in serious injury or death. Former U.S. prosecutor Richard Rosenthal was hired last year for the new office, after establishing similar services in Denver and Portland. Rosenthal told a news conference Monday he has hired 30 of 36 investigators, divided into four teams, who are now on call to oversee investigation of any major incident involving police in the province. About half of those investigators are former police, none of whom previously worked in B.C. Rosenthal and Justice Minister Shirley Bond said police experience is required, because the teams will need to secure crime scenes, interview police and other witnesses, and investigate incidents involving off-duty police officers, including homicides. B.C.'s Independent Investigations Office (IIO) is the fourth of its kind in Canada, and has the largest civilian presence of any in the world, Rosenthal said. 6:32 PM The B.C. government committed to a civilian-led agency after a string of incidents involving RCMP and city police forces. The office was recommended by inquiries into the 2007 death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver airport, and Frank Paul, who was removed

Premier Christy Clark and Justice Minister Shirley Bond introduce Richard Rosenthal when he was hired in December 2011 to become B.C.’s first civilian director of police oversight. from the Vancouver Police drunk tank in 1998 and left unconscious in an alley. The 2005 gunshot death of Ian Bush at the RCMP detachment in Houston, B.C. was another case that pushed the B.C. government to end the practice of police incidents being investigated by other police forces. The independent office will also bring B.C. RCMP officers under civilian oversight. Bond said B.C. police agencies asked for independent oversight after police-led investigations in the Paul and Dziekanski cases eroded public support. Rosenthal said he intends to

make reports public, whether or not the IIO recommends charges against police officers. Final decisions on charges are made by a Crown prosecutor, as with any other B.C. criminal case. The IIO expects to deal with about 100 cases involving death or serious injury in an average year. The office has a budget of about $10 million a year, working out of headquarters in Surrey. The existing B.C. Police Complaints Commissioner is continuing to handle public complaints against police forces in the province. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Saanich pressured to ban bird cannons Rarely used propane noisemakers help save crops: farmer Kyle Slavin News staff

Free arts & culture activities in your community. Show us what culture means to you at the CULTURE GALLERY. Win prizes. CBC I

When Canada geese were continually attacking blueberry crops at Beckwith Farm in 2010, the Saanich operation launched its bird predation plan – which includes a noise cannon. “The predator kites and other visual deterrents had no effect on the Canada geese,” said farm president Wayne Hopkins. “These geese were landing and eating the leaves. They killed somewhere around 12,000 plants in a matter of a few days. We had to employ noise devices very quickly.” One such device was a propane cannon, which creates a 130-decibel bang to scare birds away. The birds aren’t too fond of the noise and neighbours near the farm aren’t either. “It defies common sense to use propane cannons as a bird deterrent 200 metres from urban homes in long established Saan-

ich neighbourhoods,” reads a brochure from the Concerned Neighbours of Beckwith Farm organization. “The noise generated … is debilitating to a large number of residents … causing significant impacts to health, livelihood and happiness.” No propane cannons have gone off at the Blenkinsop Valley farm since 2010, and Hopkins credits that to the predation management plan. Cannons are used as a last-ditch effort when visual deterrents and other audible devices don’t work. But neighbours worry the cannons could go off again in the event a new flock of birds swarms onto nearby crops. Saanich councillors Susan Brice and Nichola Wade brought forward a motion at last week’s council meeting asking staff to look at options regarding cannons to mitigate friction between neighbours and the farm. “The two of us feel we’re very supportive of agriculture in Saan-

ich. However, it is an inappropriate mechanism to use propane cannons (so close to) residential developments,” Wade said. The councillors mentioned ongoing frustration dealing with the province. The use of propane cannons comes under the Ministry of Agriculture’s authority and the Right to Farm legislation trumps municipal bylaws. “Anything that can be explored that’s going to give the neighbours in this area some relief is worth putting on the table,” said Coun. Dean Murdock. Hopkins said Saanich’s intervening is all politicking. He anticipates the municipality won’t get far with the province. “The fact is (propane cannons are) a last resort and unless Saanich or whoever has a better alternative as a last resort, I think they’re here to stay,” he said. Council unanimously agreed to have staff look into options. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Come home to natural gas Natural gas offers comfort, convenience and value Your home is perhaps your most important investment. It costs money to maintain it, and needs energy to run it. By choosing the right energy for the right use, you can maximize energy efficiency and value for your energy dollars.
