No more sitting on information Council moves to ensure timely sharing of consultant reports Roszan Holmen News staff

After getting a nasty surprise through the media last month, city council took swift steps to ensure it learns of city-commissioned reports in a timely way from now on. Recently, a media outlet revealed a $34-million price tag to upgrade 16 municipally owned buildings to current seismic code. Staff obtained the information from a consultant in December 2010. Councillors, however, didn’t learn the numbers until contacted by Focus Magazine, which published its findings in September. “My first response when I realized that we had not got this significant information was to be mad at staff,” said Coun. Lisa Helps. Upon reflection, however, she realized council had never set guidelines for sharing reports with council. “So really, it’s our fault,” she said. Helps and Coun. Marianne Alto reacted to the development by crafting a motion that orders staff to forward all third-party reports to council within 30 days of their receipt. Their initial motion cast too large a net. The city commissions 300 to 400 reports each year, many of which deal with such minutia as plumbing and arborist reports, city manager Gail Stephens told council Thursday. Instead, council voted on a compromise. Council will now receive all third-party reports dealing with city assets with budget implications of at least $1 million within 60 days. Those reports, however, will not be made public until they are brought before a meeting of council, accompanied by a staff report. Coun. Geoff Young expressed discomfort with the idea of being routinely passed information without public disclosure. It “violates the basic principle of open government,” he said. “I don’t like it at all.”

‘Mastermind’ in shootings given reduced sentence for role Incident outside club left one dead, two injured Roszan Holmen News staff

Somphavanh Chanthabouala was re-sentenced Friday to life in prison with no chance of parole for 14 years, on a charge of seconddegree murder and two counts of attempted murder stemming from a 2008 shooting in front of the Red Jacket nightclub. Chanthabouala, now 26, was

originally convicted of first-degree murder for being party to the shooting death of Philbert Truong in 2008, and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years. The conviction, however, was appealed and reduced to second-degree murder in November 2011 when the court determined the jury had been improperly instructed on the role intoxication played in the events outside the View Street club. Also shot in the incident, but not killed, were Thuan Le and Robin Lepard. For his part in their injuries, Chanthabouala initially

received concurrent sentences of 18 and 10 years, respectively, for attempted murder. On July 18, 2008, Chanthabouala had a minor altercation with Le inside the club. Later, Chanthabouala called a friend to help him confront Le outside. Soon afterwards, Mark Arrieta, then 16, arrived by cab. The two walked toward Le and his friends, Truong and Lepard. Arrieta produced a loaded handgun and pointed it at Le’s chest, but Truong stepped in between. At some point, witnesses at the scene testified, Chanthabouala yelled “Shoot him; shoot him!”

Arrieta shot all three men, but killed only Truong. He was later convicted of second-degree murder. Judge Keith Bracken delivered Chanthabouala’s new sentence on Friday in B.C. Supreme Court. The judge disregarded the Crown’s argument that there were some elements of planning and deliberation by Chanthabouala in the shooting. He said there was insufficient evidence to know whether Chanthabouala had instructed Arrieta to bring a gun, and even whether he knew about the gun before it was produced. He therefore denied the Crown attorneys’

request for a 16- to 18-year period of ineligibility for parole. But neither did the judge agree to the defence’s request for the minimum period of 10 years without parole. While acknowledging Chanthabouala’s supportive family and his participation in rehabilitation courses, the judge also noted the young man moved to Victoria to sell drugs and at first expressed no remorse for his crime. He freely engaged in the lifestyle of a drug dealer and wished to emulate the gangster style, Bracken said. rholmen@vicnews.com

Traffic mishap causes flood

Relic gets fresh

Andrew Cosby, with Great West Scaffold Rentals puts up scaffolding on the Weiler Building on the corner of Government and Broughton Street last week.

News staff

Paul’s Motor Inn is digging up its parking lot after a relatively minor traffic accident led to major flooding damage Sunday. A collision between a 73-yearold Victoria man and a 19-yearold Saanich man occurred in the intersection of Douglas and Chatham streets around 11:30 a.m. The younger driver’s vehicle sheared off a fire hydrant near Paul’s, flooding the hotel’s basement and causing underground pipe damage. “It sent some sort of shockwave down the waterpipe and fractured the pipe down on our

land, so we’re going to have to dig up to find out where the break is,” said Ian Powell, managing director of Paul’s Motor Inn. “We don’t quite know the extent of the damage yet.” Also known as water hammer, pipes can crack from a sudden change in pressure and cause underground leaks. “The pipes are designed for a certain pressure, so when the pressure fluctuates suddenly like that, there’s the potential for it to damage the pipe,” said John Sturdy, Victoria’s assistant director of utilities and facilities. Sturdy said businesses may have noticed a discolouration

of their tap water after the accident, a result of a small amount of silt being disturbed. “We flush our water mains regularly to keep silt from building up, so it’s nothing to worry about,” he said. The drivers of the vehicles were unharmed, while a 67-yearold pedestrian suffered minor injuries. No charges have been laid, but VicPD crash analysts are reviewing the evidence. Crews began digging up the damaged pipe Monday afternoon, Powell said, adding he will soon have a better idea of the damage. “It’s amazing what a traffic accident can do,” he said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

without, Desjardins said switching to RCMP policing would still have saved $2 million a year. “At the end of the day, to spin it any other way than ‘there was a significant difference in cost at an equal level of service,’ would be not accurate,” she said. VicPD’s proposal includes the full spectrum of police services from its 243-member force, as well as the stationing of officers in the township’s aging public safety building on Park Place. Desjardins hopes a framework agreement, spearheaded by provincial facilitator Lee Doney, will provide a chance to blend the best of both proposals for the township. VicPD Chief Const.

Esquimalt released its policing proposals after months of privacy concerns, revealing a pickand-choose menu of options from the RCMP and a comprehensive all-in package from the Victoria Police Department. The proposals shed light on the province’s decision in June to force the township to maintain policing services with VicPD, despite an advisory panel’s recommendation to switch to the RCMP. It will cost Esquimalt an average of $7.9 million over the next five years for VicPD services, an unsustainable expense without regional or provincial support, Desjardins said. The initial budget projections in the RCMP proposal – $4.7 million for 2013 – do not include “optional specific services” such as bike patrol units, victims services or the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit, a key component in complex homicide and drugs investigations.

B.C. Liberals announce candidate in western constituency for 2013

DND home placed on surplus list Property has deep Esquimalt roots, advocate says Daniel Palmer

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Jack Bates stands near a 115-year-old heritage building on Anson Street that he’s trying to convince DND to save.

News staff

Some Esquimalt residents are hoping a last-minute push will save the home of a former prominent politician from the chopping block at CFB Esquimalt. Located on federal property at 316 Anson St. near Macaulay Point is the former home of John Jardine, who represented Esquimalt in the Provincial Assembly from 1907 to 1912. It underwent a heritage review by Parks Canada in April after it was identified by the Department of National Defense as surplus inventory. “It’s potentially going to come down in a couple of weeks,” said Jack Bates, Esquimalt resident and heritage advocate. Although the federal review

does include information on the home’s heritage value from the Esquimalt Archives and former heritage advisory committee chair Liz Dill, the township’s residents should have been given more opportunity to voice their concerns, Bates said. The federal review used a scorecard to rank the Anson Street home on aesthetic and material design, historical significance and other factors. It concluded the building did not meet the threshold for heritage status. “Some of the references are incorrect and I’m appealing to the base commander to review it again,” Bates said. The home was most recently

He runs Ricketts Construction Ltd. and has served as president of the WestShore Chamber of Commerce. He is director of the EsquimaltRoyal Roads B.C. Liberal Constituency Association.

used as a child care facility for DND staff, but its condition is considered beyond economical repair, base commander Capt. Bob Auchterlonie said in a letter to the heritage committee. Mayor Barb Desjardins said she has arranged to meet with Auchterlonie to discuss the fate of the building, but pointed out Esquimalt has no jurisdiction over the matter. “That being said, we work together and the key is to have good communication with the base. So I have let the heritage committee know that I will take that forward as a concern to the base commander,” she said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

“As someone who depends on a thriving construction industry, I believe it is vitally important that we maintain a government that is committed to keeping B.C.’s economy strong,” he said in a news release. Ricketts is also former president of the Canadian Home Builders Association of B.C. editor@vicnews.com

Group insists that planned sewage treatment plant can still be halted Daniel Palmer News staff

A group of marine scientists, public health officers and a former federal environment minister are launching a formal public campaign to stop the Capital Regional District’s $782-million sewage treatment project. The Association for Responsible and Environmentally Sustainable Sewage Treatment (ARESST) believes the proposed landbased sewage treatment project is unnecessary. “Very simply, it’s not an environmentally motivated plan; it’s politically motivated,” said ARESST chair John Bergbusch. The organization points to scientific studies that show the current sewage treatment, which pumps filtered wastewater to deep-sea outfalls, is safe and effective. “We hope to make this an

issue in the federal (Victoria) byelection and the provincial election in the spring,” Bergbusch said. If the project goes forward, property taxes will increase by hundreds of dollars for residents in Victoria, Esquimalt, Oak Bay, Saanich, View Royal, Colwood and Langford. ARESST members will present their concerns at St. Ann’s Academy on Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m., featuring former Liberal MP David Anderson. The CRD is in the early planning stages of the megaproject, which includes a wastewater treatment plant at McLoughlin Point in Esquimalt, a biosolids energy centre at Hartland landfill in Saanich and a 17-kilometre pipeline.

A subsidized program that teaches businesses how to measure and reduce their environmental impact is showing early signs of success and helping the city meet its reduction targets. The Climate Smart program is just one of many strategies Victoria introduced to work at achieving a 33-per-cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 compared to 2007 levels, said city sustainability director Roy Brooke. The program is an exam-

ple of the type of initiatives he hopes to roll out in the next three years, with council approval. “The city has invested a lot of time developing a range of cost-effective actions and strategies to reduce climate impacts,” Brooke said. “There’s a lot more to come, but we need support to do it.” Graduates of the program have become more competitive by saving money and positioning themselves as environmental leaders, he added. “The biggest change for us was in the way we heat our water ...

biggest energy culprit,” said Jordan Schneider, production manager at Phillips Brewing, one of 46 Victoria businesses to have completed the program since 2011. The program gave his organization tools to measure its carbon footprint and conduct an accurate energy audit. “Some things are no-brainers, and we’re wondering why we didn’t do in the past,” Schneider said, referencing their newly expanded recycling program and a switch to highefficiency light bulbs. Saanich and Victoria are aiming to provide the Climate

Smart program to 50 businesses in 2012, with the help of Capital Regional District funding. Mark Boyson, Saanich’s sustainability co-ordinator, said he has witnessed “cross-pollination” of green ideas between businesses as a result of the program. The subsidized program cost to businesses ranges from $250 to $1,000, depending on the number of employees in a participating organization. The next Climate Smart workshop begins today (Sept. 26). For details, visit climate smartbusiness.com/CRD. dpalmer@vicnews.com

The word “amblyopia” is Greek in origin and it quite literally means slow vision. The term “lazy eye” is often used to describe amblyopia to patients. If an eye is to become amblyopic, it will do so during the period of visual development between birth and about ten years of age. One eye is sending a weaker signal to the brain; therefore fewer connections will be made to the brain for that eye. This condition can occur if one is born with eyes significantly different prescriptions. Over time, the ability to use both eyes at once is diminished. The brain has many cells requiring input from both eyes. These cells, devoted to binocular vision and depth perception, are unable to develop if both eyes are not sending a strong signal, consequently the weaker eye wanders. Researchers disagree about the exact age up to which amblyopia can be successfully treated. They do agree however that the key to remediating amblyopia is early detection and treatment. Remember, the first eye examination should be at around the third birthday.

Victoria ALS walk shatters 2012 goal

Veteran pushes Esquimalt for memorial

Fundraisers for this year’s Victoria Walk for ALS, held Sept. 16 at the University of Victoria, dug deep to secure pledges. Having set a goal to raise $30,000 – a modest $2,000 increase over last year’s total – organizers had tallied more than $47,000 in donations by last weekend, with Bob Goffin pledges still coming in. The walk attracted more than 300 participants, including nearly 30 family members from Team Goffin. Patriarch Bob Goffin lost his wife Dianna, to ALS this year. The group, walking in her honour, raised $6,300. editor@vicnews.com

Daniel Palmer A merchant navy veteran is not giving up on his mission to create the Island’s first Battle of the Atlantic memorial in Esquimalt. Bill Emberly, who presented his case to the township’s heritage advisory committee again last week, said the memorial is long overdue. “I feel pretty sure (the committee) will go for it. There’s a lot of people there who are sympathetic, but they’re worried about money,” he said. Emberly spent six years making the harrowing three-week crossings from Canada to the United Kingdom, the longest single battle of the Second World War. “Any time you get an opportunity to more formally and officially create a memorial to recognize (people), it’s a good thing to do,” said Coun. Dave Hodgins, a council liaison on the heritage advisory committee. “The issue that I did hear was where it should be.” Approximately 1,600 Canadian merchant seamen lost their lives providing crucial supplies to Europe during the Second World War, but they faced discrimination for more than a half-century from the Canadian government. “We fought like the devil for 25 years just to get recognition and it was 63 years before they gave me a pension,” Emberly said.

Victoria West resident and Merchant Navy veteran Bill Emberly is asking Esquimalt council for permission to install a Merchant Navy monument in Memorial Park. Currently the plaque behind him is the only reminder. It was only in 2000 that then federal veterans affairs minister George Baker made merchant mariners eligible to receive benefits and pensions, and only in 2003 did Canada formally designate Sept. 3 as Merchant Navy Veterans Day. Hodgins said the committee will speak with Esquimalt parks and recreation

about the placement of the memorial, and will look at any existing regulations before moving forward. Emberly said the delay is frustrating, but expected. “That’s normal for me, I’ve been going through that for 67 years,” he said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Council runs City of Victoria Victoria city councillors took a major step in the direction of transparency last week. Voting to compel city staff to hand over to council any third-party reports on assets worth more than $1 million within 60 days is, in essence, a way of showing staff who runs city hall. City management may feel it is their right to hang on to information that is not in a format meaningful to city council. The point is that council must answer to the taxpaying public, not staff, and councillors have a responsibility to inform the public about financial pressures facing the city. The majority of our residents and property owners don’t pay much attention to the dayto-day operations of the city. But most stand up and take notice when information is made public on big-dollar projects that will affect their taxes. When these big price-tag items are leaked by the media, instead of reported through proper channels, it inevitably sparks mistrust in city staff. We can’t know the true motivation behind shelving a report on seismic upgrades. It could have simply been a low priority as city staff work to replace the Johnson Street Bridge. To an outsider, however, the decision to postpone sharing this information can easily appear arrogant and guided by motivation outside the public good. At a time when the public’s relationship to the city has been damaged over issues of transparency, the city can’t afford to be seen as hiding major expenses. Given that city council ultimately controls the purse strings on major infrastructure projects, it’s imperative that they know as soon as possible when the cost of such undertakings change or are initially determined. We applaud the efforts of councillors Lisa Helps and Marianne Alto for making an issue of this glaring disconnect between staff and council. The solution is a move in the right direction that will help regain taxpayers’ trust and hopefully help council avoid any more nasty surprises. What do you think?

playing to the urban Occupy crowd, with a promise of a tax on banks to fund student grants. Instead of providing loan relief after successful completion, they’re going to hand out money at the front end, just like they did in my student days. My experience as a student, job seeker and parent is that free money encourages aimless study, and the selection of courses that are appealing rather than safe investments. We have far too much of that and I think most students today would be better off with more debt and a well-paying job. As the new trades plan was being rolled out (and mostly ignored by the Vancouver media), former finance minister Colin Hansen announced he’s retiring. It was Hansen who started the push for skills training back in 2008, emphasizing that there will be a million new jobs open by 2019, 600,000 of them due to retiring baby boomers. Hansen made a sales trip to snowy Toronto to launch advertising to lure people to B.C. That effort is being revised with a series of interprovincial and international trips, because even if all 650,000 high school students graduate and go to work in B.C. from now to 2019, it won’t be enough to fill all the jobs on the horizon.

LETTERS Resident not impressed with newest Esquimalt councillors Even though they are still in the process of learning the ropes, newest Esquimalt councillors Tim Morrison, Dave Hodgins, Robert McKie and David Shinbein have already mastered the art of syphoning taxpayers’ dollars into their pockets. At last Monday’s council meeting (Sept. 17), McKie brought

forward a motion that would entitle spouses/partners of councillors to a free gym pass. With Esquimalt taxpayers already on the hook for $62,000 worth of passes to town employees, he argued that an extra $3,000 would make little difference. The motion was defeated, with only McKie, Shinbein and Morrison voting to

accept the proposal. Next in line was Coun. Morrison, asking that councillors be remunerated an extra five per cent for the times they are designated as acting mayor. Even though it’s called remuneration, it is just another word for more pay. That motion passed, with all four new councillors voting for it.

I should mention, longtime Coun. Lynda Hundleby expressed that serving as acting mayor was an honour. I lift my hat to her. I expect my mayor and council to look after our tax dollars in a fair and responsible way, especially since it is not theirs to begin with. I expect them to look at ways

to reduce expenses, starting with themselves, to set examples to others. But I did not expect that those newest councillors to have the gall to vote themselves a remuneration increase. I assume it feels good to be on a gravy train. Emmy Labonte Esquimalt

Readers respond: Globe project, Fernwood Village, cost-of-living raises, bomb squad No conspiracy against Bawlf’s globe project

Fernwood Village project clarified by proponent

Re: Museum cannot get stuck in the past (Letters, Aug. 29) I was delighted that our museum provided your class with that special opportunity to hear Maquinna’s story from his family’s perspective. There are always new things to discover and what may someday be accepted as verifiable history can take a long time to reach consensus within the academic community. One of our upcoming feature exhibitions, on the earliest printed maps, is an example of the sometimes concurrent, sometimes divergent views on our world over time, generally moving from a theological to a geographical perspective but with much disagreement and overlap along the way. Since our focus at the Royal B.C. Museum must be on the B.C. collection, we simply don’t have the resources to either further the research or digitize the Molyneux Globe at this time. Mr. Bawlf and I have spoken and we are still open to discussion about displaying the globe on our website once digitized. In the meantime, information on the explorations of Sir Francis Drake and images of the Molyneux Globe are available both in Sam Bawlf’s books and other online sources. Jack Lohman Chief Executive Officer Royal B.C. Museum

Re: Housing Project blends teamwork and community (News, Aug. 31) We appreciate the coverage of the Fernwood Urban Village cohousing project. The information on the scope of the project was generally correct about our development, mentioning the energy efficient factors such as green roofs, solar panels, organic gardens, etc. What needs to be clarified in the article is the perspective of the City of Victoria on the project. While it is true that city staff did not recommend the project, it is because they cannot approve any development that doesn’t conform to current municipal guidelines. To achieve our goals of sustainability, we have exceeded the density ceilings for this particular area of Fernwood. As a result staff is prevented from recommending us, even though privately they admit they are supportive. Our plan is seen as advanced thinking and a model of low impact affordable housing. Politically, city councillors have been encouraging. Our neighbours in Fernwood are supportive, and many members of the pubic who have viewed the plans have voiced their approval. The project is innovative, exciting, as well as a smart and satisfying way of living.

Automatic raises are not sustainable Re: Wages not keeping up with cost of living hike (Letters, Sept. 21) Maybe the News should get a professor of economics to do an op-ed. It is not sustainable for the country, province or city to provide a universal entitlement to automatic cost-of-living increases. If these increases are not preceded by matching productivity increases, they are inflationary in themselves – indeed in some circumstances the rate is compounded. This is one reason why public service pensions, for instance, have caused municipal bankruptcies. Note, too, that Victoria city councillors have opted for a budget system with a built-in 3.25 per cent increase, regardless of actual inflation. The current rate in Greater Victoria is substantially below two per cent and hasn’t been much more on a longerterm average. Simon Twist Victoria

Military on hand could defuse bomb scares When a suspicious package was found on a B.C. Transit bus

near the legislature on Sept. 10, I can’t understand why it should have been necessary to wait seven hours for the provincial bomb disposal unit to arrive from Vancouver when there is a fully trained and properly equipped bomb squad, funded with taxpayers’ dollars, available at the Canadian Forces Base in Esquimalt. If our military forces can be used to help protect American oil companies’ pipelines in Afghanistan and to help install a government friendly to Western oil interests in Libya, surely it is not too much to ask that they can also be used to help protect citizens here in Greater Victoria whenever a bomb threat of this kind arises.

cyclists, I do own a car, which I use when cycling is not feasible. I am tired of hearing “cyclists do not pay taxes.” I pay my share in property taxes, gas taxes, HST and so on. And I (also like most cyclists) have a drivers licence and know the rules of the road. Absolutely, penalize road users for breaking the rules. No need to unduly target cyclists. Cyclists are still the minority – both in volume and in ticketable offences. Claire Morgan Saanich

Cars and cyclists must share the road It is time to stop bickering about “cars versus bicycles.” As much as many would enjoy the quiet and cleanliness if all motor vehicles magically vanished from the roads, I recognize this is not likely to happen. I also realize that there are motorists who will never give up their cars for a bicycle. Like many, I choose to ride my bike as much as possible, and enjoy the many health, economic and convenience benefits of doing so. But, also like many (if not all)

Six B.C. firms have responded to the Request for Qualifications issued by the Greater Victoria School District in mid July to build a new Oak Bay High. The firms are vying to design and build the new school, a project that’s slated to begin in the summer of 2013. The six firms that have submitted bids have provided details on the design-build team that they would use to complete the project. Those details include the names of the proposed building contractor, an archi-

tect, consulting engineers and major trades, all of which will work together to design and construct the new school. A project team, appointed by the school district, will now evaluate the bids on the basis of who the companies propose to involve in the project and the relative experience in design and construction demonstrated by the various bidders. “The design-build concept is a different approach from the traditional tender process,” said Doug Hibbins, procurement manager of the Oak Bay High School Replacement Project. “Having the design work done in conjunction with the contractor can create a synergy that can improve the whole project.” In the tender process the design and construction processes are separate and the lowest bid for a construction tender is generally awarded the

project. Hibbins said the design-build approach has now been used on a number of school replacements with excellent results. However, the bidding process isn’t over. Three of the companies will be invited to submit comprehensive proposals in response to a request for proposals (RFP). That RFP will be issued this fall, and will require a far more comprehensive plan to meet the functional requirements of the new school. The school district expects to receive those bids early in 2013. “It’s really a matter of ensuring that we get the greatest value,” said Hibbins. “The budget is fixed. It’s about what you can get for the money.” More information on the new Oak Bay High can be found at oakbay.sd61.bc.ca. reporter@vicnews.com

The Root Cellar Vancity business member

The Root Cellar Village Green Grocer sources local products as much as possible, including farmers from across Vancouver Island and backyard gardeners in their Saanich neighbourhood. Vancity believes in The Root Cellar’s business model and its commitment to social, economic and environmental impact in the Greater Victoria community. After reviewing the company’s business model—and taking a closer look at its rapid growth—Vancity came to

the table with a creative mortgage financing package including a new business line of credit. With financing in hand, The Root Cellar was able to purchase its existing location at 1286 McKenzie Avenue. As a result, the business was able to expand its offering of locally grown fruits, vegetables and other food, all while expanding its bottom line. That expansion has brought community benefits in the form of

support for local food producers and employment for local residents. Over the past three years, The Root Cellar has grown from eight employees to fifty-four. Vancity shares The Root Cellar’s commitment to environmental and social sustainability, and its continuing effort to support the Greater Victoria food economy. We continue to invest in the people and businesses who produce, deliver and serve locally grown organic food.

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

When you make deposits with Vancity, you earn competitive returns that help you reach your financial goals. We then lend to businesses and organizations that create social, economic and environmental impact. That investment comes back to all of us in the form of a stronger economy, a healthier population, and a vibrant, more prosperous community.

Rickshaw for charity stolen Kyle Slavin News staff

Photo contributed

This rickshaw was stolen from Ten Thousand Villages at Broadmead Village after being donated for auction to support Tour de Rock.

For the second time this summer, an item set for auction to raise money for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, which supports childhood cancer research, has been stolen. This time it was the rickshaw that sat in front of Ten Thousand Villages in Broadmead Village for more than 12 years. It was decided earlier this year that the rickshaw, originally from Bangladesh, would be donated to Tour de Rock. Before the Sept. 8 weekend, the pedal-powered cart was moved from the front to the rear of the store. It was locked up, but the lock was broken and thieves made off with the rickshaw sometime before Sept. 12. "It's made out of steel, like rebar,

and it was hand-fabricated. It was very ornate, decorated in a South Asian-type theme," said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen. "It's a fairly large thing, and I guess it's quite unwieldy." Police ask anyone who may have seen the colourful vehicle in recent days to call them at 250475-4321. "A rickshaw is not something you can miss," Jantzen said. The rickshaw was expected to net $1,000 at an Oct. 3 auction. On Aug. 24, a thief stole a gift basket of hair products from a Tour de Rock fundraiser at Pearkes Recreation Centre. A man was arrested the next day in possession of the items. If you wish to make a donation to Tour de Rock, visit tourderock. ca. kslavin@saanichnews.com

An inch of water a week – from rainfall & watering – is all the water your lawn needs to stay healthy. More than one inch of water, and you risk weak, shallow roots, and damage by fungus, weeds, diseases and pests. Get a watering gauge FREE! If you have a water bill account number in the Greater Victoria area call 250.474.9684 for a free watering gauge. Watering gauges make it easy to see how much water your lawn is getting.

Culture Days invite participation in the arts Tim Collins News staff

Have you always wanted to talk like a pirate? How about taking the stage to perform a little Shakespeare, or sing with the opera? Maybe you’d like to learn how to tell a really good story, or hear the first reading of a new play. The opportunity to do all of these things and more will be offered to the public as Culture Days come to Victoria, Sept. 28 to 30. The activities are part of a national celebration of arts and culture intended to get people talking about how culture enhances their lives. “It’s all about celebrating arts and culture in all its many forms,” says Tamara Leigh, Culture Days B.C.’s Provincial Task Force Chairperson. “We have over 300 activities registered in B.C. and nearly 7,000 activities nationwide.” The goals of the movement are fourfold: accessibility, awareness, participation and engagement. “We want people to realize that arts and culture is for everyone,” said Leigh. “We want them talking about all the faces of art and cul-

ture and appreciate how everything – writing, architecture, art, music – all has an impact on our lives. We also want people to understand and appreciate those parts of their lives and talk about it with others.” To that end, beginning in early September, Canadians have been invited to tweet @ CultureDays to complete the statement: #Culture is ___ to me. According to Leigh, the response has been tremendous. As well, the CBC has just invited British Columbians to show what culture means to them by submitting photos to an online gallery at cbc.ca/bc/ culture days. They’ll be offering prizes for the best interpretation submitted. It’s music to the ears of Leigh, www.tdfoto.ca who’s thrilled about the conBallet Victoria dancer Andrea test. “Too many of us suffer from Bayne will be among those this junior high school trauma participating in Culture Days. about culture. … where we had it forced upon us and never ture in a different, personal way.” recovered. We’re giving people a The movement was inspired by chance to get beyond that intimi- both Quebec’s annual Journees de dation factor and experience cul- la Culture, founded in 1997 and

by the success of Alberta’s Arts Days (now Alberta Culture Days), founded in 2008. Building on those successes, the four founding partners of Culture Days, the Canadian Arts Summit, Culture Pour Tous, Canada Council for the Arts and the Banff Centre, banded together to create a national movement to celebrate and promote arts and culture across Canada. “The goal in launching Culture Days was to create a truly national event in which culture in all its forms can be celebrated in an interactive and inclusive way,” said Antoni Cimolino, chair of Culture Days’ national steering committee. That goal seems to have been achieved. Since its inception in 2010 the movement has grown to where it now boasts the inclusion of thousands of individual artists, diverse cultural groups, organizations, municipalities and festivals. They all come together to promote and inspire greater participation in arts and culture. By making the events interactive, hands-on and free the public gets a behind-the-scenes look at the world of artists and the creative process. “The whole experi-

ence personalizes art and culture for them,” says Leigh. Anyone can register their event or activity with the Culture Days organization providing that they meet its criteria. It’s the third year for this voluntary movement and it has already become the largest collective public participation campaign by the arts and cultural community in Canadian history, says Leigh.

Businesses enjoy benefits of Chamber membership

In today’s economic climate, many small businesses are looking for ways to increase efficiency and maximize their marketing opportunities. The Esquimalt Chamber of Commerce has one easy, effective suggestion: membership. “The Esquimalt Chamber of Commerce has enjoyed a tremendous growth in the last year,” says vice-president Ed Williams, noting that thanks to an initiative aimed at getting the word out to prospective business owners, membership has climbed to about 130 this year. A key benefit of Chamber membership is access to the employee benefits program available to all members of British Columbia chambers of commerce. “It helps you retain good employees if you’re able to offer them a little bit extra,” Williams says. In addition, the learning and networking opportunities for members are significant, notes Williams, a commercial real estate agent who has been a member for 10 years. Esquimalt Chamber members meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month to hear from interesting, informative speakers and meet other like-minded Esquimalt Chamber of Commerce Vice-President business owners; meeting times vary to accomEd Williams invites business owners to explore modate different schedules. the benefits of membership.

Vancouver Giants defenceman John Neibrandt shoves Victoria Royals forward Austin Carroll into goalie Liam Liston at Save-OnFoods Memorial Centre during the Royals’ 3-2 win on Saturday.

The score sheet doesn’t do the Victoria Royals 6-4 and 3-2 openingweekend wins over the Vancouver Giants any justice. The Royals carried the play in both games, particularly in Victoria on Saturday night. But the Giants scored against the flow in both, mounting comebacks that were ultimately too late. “It’s something special to get those two wins against Vancouver already, it didn’t happen at all last year,” forward Logan Nelson said after the game. At the same time, no one in the Royals dressing room was fooling themselves. Despite the Royals nearly doubling the Giants in shots in the second period on Saturday, the Giants ended with two goals on 23 shots against Patrik Polivka to the Royals three goals on 25 shots

against Liam Liston. “I like the fact we battled hard, we went in to a tough building (in Vancouver on Friday) and found a way to win,” said Royals head coach Dave Lowry. “I thought we played a pretty solid game (Saturday). Moving forward we will learn to play with the lead and defend the lead.” Goalie Polivka started both games but Lowry is hesitant to label the Czech as the Royals starter. “He played well enough to earn the first start, made some big saves in Vancouver, so I thought why not stay with him?” The Royals host the Kamloops Blazers Friday night (Sept. 28) and Sunday afternoon at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. “Kamloops is a veteran squad, highly skilled, and if we want to be a top team we’re going to have to start beating these top teams,” Lowry said. sports@vicnews.com

Despite losing a few key players to graduation from last season, the Barbers are playing like the defending high school provincial champs that they are. The Barbers breezed undefeated into the final against the Pacific Christian Pacers, and defeated the Pacers 25-16, 25-11. Barbers player Elion Wong was named the most valuable player. As a smaller school, the Pacers also came out looking good as they only lost to Oak Bay. Head coach Charles Parkinson of the Chargers organizes the tourney as a recruiting and devel-

opment tool for local and B.C. volleyball, and has used it to find many a Charger in the past. “Every year we turn over five or six players, as Camosun’s college programs are predominantly two years, whereas a lot of our competition (colleges) have longer programs” he said. And this year is no different. “Overall it’s a good recruiting year from Victoria especially, better than years previous,” Parkinson added, with three locally produced players and three college transfers coming in. “We’d like to get every single athlete we need from Victoria, but the pool just isn’t deep enough,” Parkinson said. Joining the Chargers from South Island this year are Oak Bay’s Ryan Marcellus at setter, Claremont’s Lochlan Polson in the middle and Lambrick Park’s Lucas Dellabough on the right side. “Dellabough is a perfect example, he was the MVP of the Fall Classic last year,” Parkinson said. “I chatted throughout the season with him and he decided not to play basketball but to come here and focus on volleyball.” Marcellus teams up with elder brother Garrett, the team captain, now in his fifth year with Camo-

sun. Garrett, also an Oak Bay High grad, is in the fifth year of his accounting degree and final year of eligibility. Also coming in are college transfers Robin Smith of Whitehorse, coming from Red Deer College, Adrian Best of Grand Prairie, coming from Grand Prairie College and James Cameron, who was studying at volleyball-free UVic. The Chargers season begins at PISE on Oct. 12 against V.I. University. In the meantime the men’s team has added two days of CrossFit into their training week until the season starts.

Senior Boys Fall Classic The tournament uses the same format as the high school provincials. Preliminary pools feature teams that are highly ranked playing against each other right off the bat. This year’s tournament featured locals Oak Bay, Reynolds, Belmont, Pacific Christian, Stelly’s, Claremont, Lambrick Park and Parkland, with visitors Wellington (Nanaimo), Lord Tweedsmuir (Surrey), G.P. Vanier (Courtenay), Dover Bay (Nanaimo), Ballenas (Qualicum), Sequim (Wash.) and Riverside (Port Coquitlam). sports@vicnews.com

Striker part of Vikes high-powered offence Eight goals in five games for UVic Vike Emma Greig Travis Paterson News staff

She’s a Tofino girl, and Emma Greig has a nose for the net. Greig scored her league-leading seventh and eighth goals this season as she helped the UVic Vikes defeat the Calgary Dinos 3-0 on Saturday and the Lethbridge Pronghorns 7-0 on Sunday, tallying once in each. “I actually grew up splitting time between Tofino and Parksville, and was able to play (competitive) soccer in Parksville,” said the second-year striker. Dad was in the coast guard and mom was an assistant in the school system, and were able to offer Greig a chance to play rep soccer without leaving the wonder of Tofino behind. Last year, Greig earned plenty of playing time as a rookie, but only scored one goal. Yet she already has eight in five games, including two hat tricks. And it gets better. Both hat tricks came when Greig entered the game as a second-half sub. “Emma’s doing well and that’s great for her, and really, I’m happy with the group that we have,” said head coach

Travis Paterson/News staff

Vikes striker Emma Greig holds six soccer balls, representing the number of goals she scored in the equivalent of a full game. It took Greig less than two minutes to score her eighth goal of the year on Sunday (Sept. 23). Traci David. “The players are willing to work hard. That makes them easier to push and makes it easier for us to get better.” With Greig amongst the Vikes’ explosive offensive, the team is prepared to enter the CIS national soccer championships in November through the front door, by winning the Canada West championship, and not by the automatic berth that comes with UVic being the host. In five games so far, the second-place Vikes have four wins and a tie, with 26 goals scored, one more than first place Trinity Western University (5-0) in

the Canada West Conference. “Last year I only scored once but I don’t really know that I’ve done anything differently, still eating the same old breakfast,” Greig said. One thing is sure different, and that’s the Canada West conference. Earlier this season the Vikes steamrolled CIS newcomers UNBC Timberwolves 10-0 and the Mount Royal Cougars 5-0. The only blip so far is a 1-1 draw with the Alberta Pandas. With 10 games between them, UNBC and Mount Royal have yet to win a game. “Certainly the new

teams aren’t established yet, so those can be deceiving scores,” David said. “Ask us how we’re doing after we play Trinity and UBC (4-1).” Scoring for the Vikes in Sunday’s win over Lethbridge were Greig, Amy Lawrence, Cassie Dennis, Nathalie Scharf, Sarah Douglas and Jana Yates. There was also an own goal by a Dinos player, which Mallory Hackett was the last Vikes player to touch. Vikes keeper Stephanie Parker earned the clean sheet on Saturday against Calgary, with goals from Greig, Jacqueline Harrison and Lindsay Hoetzel.

Men start slow The magic shine of last year’s national soccer championship is beginning to wear off the UVic Vikes men’s soccer team. The Vikes (2-3-1) lost to Calgary (1-4-1) on Saturday but rebounded to draw 1-1 with Lethbridge (2-2-2) on Sunday. Cameron Stokes scored the Vikes only goal on Sunday, and Gavin Barrett scored for the Vikes on Saturday. The Vikes women host the Winnipeg Wesmen and Manitoba Bisons, 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday night at Centennial Stadium. The Vikes men host the Alberta Golden Bears Friday and Saskatchewan Huskies Saturday, 7:15 p.m. sports@vicnews.com

Vikes upset champs Capilano

After a rough opening weekend of CIS play the UVic Vikes women’s rugby team will host the Alberta Pandas at UVic’s Wallace Field on Saturday (Sept. 28), 5 p.m. The Vikes are coming off heavy one-sided losses at home, 49-5 to the Lethbridge Pronghorns on Friday, and 47-3 to the Calgary Dinos on Sunday. First-year player Dacey Livingstone scored the only try of the weekend against Lethbridge, and Alana Cryer scored the only kicking goal, a penalty against the Dinos. sports@vicnews.com

National team rugby sevens captain Phil Mack was solid in his home debut with the UVic Vikes men’s team in CDI Premier League play after missing last year with injuries. The Vikes surprised visiting Capilano of North Vancouver at home on Wallace Field winning 30-24 on Saturday. Mack scored two tries, one of them a 50-yard run, kicked a drop goal from near the sideline, and was “unbelievable” at scrum half, Vikes coach Doug Tate said on the Vikes website. “That was a career game.” Keaton Styles and Aaron Johnston each scored a try for UVic, and Patrick Kay kicked two try conversions and two penalty

goals for 10 points. Elsewhere in the premier league James Bay took a huge 28-24 win over the Meraloma RFC in Kitsilano. Fly half Connor Braid kicked a drop goal, a try conversion and scored a try, with tries from Jeff Hassler, Jim de Goede and Nate Waldman. Oak Bay’s Castaway Wanderers fell 20-10 to Burnaby Lake. New this year is a second team from Saanich’s Velox RFC called the Velox Academy, which has entered the Island’s first division with the Velox Valhallians, which was edged out of premier competition two years ago. On Saturday the Academy bettered the Valhallians 52-6 at Velox field. sports@vicnews.com

Saanich canine unit earns best in country at police competition Department’s eighth such title since 1994 Kyle Slavin News staff

A Saanich police canine officer is the top dog in the country after finishing first overall at the Canadian Police Canine Championships in Regina, Sask., earlier this month. Const. Jon Zielinski and his fouryear-old German shepherd, Zeke, participated in a gamut of trials, which show off the dog and handler’s skills when working together as a team. “He’s special to me because of his loyalty. He’s easygoing. I know that he has all the gears that I need and he knows when to switch it on, so to speak,” Zielinksi said, while Zeke gnawed on a toy beside him. “When we were in Regina, he showed that he has all the gears

and he performed really well. But at the end of the day I can take him home and he’s part of the family.” Some 30 canine units from across Canada participated in building search, evidence search and open compound search scenarios, along with a criminal apprehension test. The dogs were also tested on their obedience and agility. Zielinski, who has competed previously at the canine championships (placing third overall in 2008 with police dog Bauer), said the winning formula takes time to prove successful at the competitions. “First of all you need a bit of luck, then you need the (right) dog, and then you need the hard work,” he said. All the tests Zeke went through at the championships, held Sept. 6

This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, November 19, 2012 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, February 18, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

Registration applications are available from Elections BC. Who May Sign the Petition: Registered voters as of Monday, November 19, 2012 may sign the initiative petition.
