Residents pushing for sewer hookup Homeowners in one of city’s oldest subdivisions asking for connection to services but officials say cost is prohibitive BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

RACHEL STERN/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Walking for life Claudio Aguilera and his son Mathyas, 3, march along the Harbourfront Walkway Saturday morning during the Nanaimo AIDS Walk for Life event. The walk helped raise money and awareness about the disease and its impact on people and families.

Requests to hook up to city sewers are beginning to back up. In 2011, city council voted to cover the entire $3.2-million cost to install sewers for 107 property owners at Green Lake. Three months ago, residents on Stamp Way also received their long-awaited sewer hookups. Now, residents of one of Nanaimo’s oldest subdivisions say it’s their turn to have city sewer services as promised more than 35 years ago when Harewood was amalgamated. Darlene Budd, a 40-year resident of Western Acres, has created a petition with 35 signatures on it asking city hall to install sewers. She said residents in the subdivision are forced to pay thousands of dollars to have septic tanks installed despite paying city taxes, and that when the Nanaimo Parkway was built in the mid-1990s, a sewer sleeve was installed suggesting there was intent to connect the neighbourhood to the city system. “That sleeve came within 100 yards of our property so we relaxed about it thinking ‘OK, when we want to sell we’ll be able to pay and have it brought to our property.’ Then we find out the sleeve was installed at the wrong elevation and isn’t usable and we’re told we’re out of luck.” Budd said she is ready to sell her fourhectare property but without sewer, it’s difficult. “I’ve been accused of self-interest and I have to say, yes, of course, we want the sewer there,” she said. “But we no longer wish to own 10 city acres. Who wants to pay taxes on

We all want sewers there, but we just don’t have that money sitting around.

that? We’ve raised our family and it’s time to move on and we’d like sewer there.” Residents at Western Acres do not pay city sewer user fees. In June 2011, city council voted to cover the entire cost of the sewer installation for Green Lake residents instead of a proposed 80/20 split that would have seen residents cover $640,000 for the project. Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan said that vote paved the way for residents of other areas to request similar treatment. “The Green Lake issue was kind of a health issue, largely through failed septic fields that were leaching into the lake,” he said, adding that repeated attempts to have the project serviced through infrastructure grants were denied because the residential density was too low. “The fear at the time was be aware of what you grant one because you can’t grant it to one without granting it to all. Now the fruits of the deed are coming home to roost.” ◆ See ‘UNLIKELY’ /6

Campaign dispels parking myths Quickfacts

BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Finding a parking spot in Nanaimo’s downtown could be a little easier thanks to a new map identifying parking locations in the city’s core. The Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association launched a Park Smart campaign to help people shopping and visiting the downtown core learn about parking choices in the area. The campaign, which runs until Oct. 15, aims to dispel myths that there is no parking in the downtown core by giving people tips and information about optional parking locations that might not be widely known. “We don’t think this campaign will fix the parking issues downtown,” said

◆ PARK SMART campaign highlights parking in downtown core. Visit www. dnbia.ca.

Corry Hostetter, the general manager of DNBIA, adding it’s a campaign to give people more information about what parking is available. “We want to bring awareness to people.” She said the information will help people plan on where to park when they know it will be busy, such as when events are held in the Old City Quarter, in Diana Krall Plaza or on Commercial Street.

Three capital projects in Nanaimo school district received the green light from provincial officials this month. Quarterway, Coal Tyee and Bayview elementary schools will all receive building envelope upgrades – renovations to the exterior of the buildings to fix water leak issues. “People understand it as the leaky condo syndrome,” said Pete Sabo, the district’s director of planning and operations. “In general, it’s premature building envelope failure.” The Education Ministry approved the projects Sept. 6 and repairs are expected to cost $1.4 million for Quarterway, $633,000 for Bayview and $1.5 million for Coal Tyee. Trustees were expected to approve capital project bylaws for all three at a board meeting Wednesday evening after press time and Sabo hopes construction can get underway this school year. “It doesn’t really mean much change to the school other than the building isn’t going to have envelope issues,” he said. The three exterior repair projects are the first items to come off the district’s fiveyear capital plan since the seismic upgrade of Pauline Haarer Elementary School in 2008.

The plan – a list of priority projects, including the building of new space, replacement or major renovations to school buildings that is submitted to the Education Ministry annually – has not changed much in recent years, said Sabo. It includes 39 projects totalling about $78 million. Replacing Davis Road and Cilaire elementary schools remain the district’s top priorities. Also high on the list are renovations to Woodlands and Nanaimo District secondary schools, an addition at Hammond Bay Elementary School, mechanical upgrades to Rutherford, Park Avenue and John Barsby schools, and an addition at Cinnabar Valley Elementary School. Jamie Brennan, school board chairman, said the district is unlikely to get the funding for projects such as replacement of elementary schools because neighbouring schools have extra space. The capital plan lists 91 surplus classrooms, 28 of which are closed or in the process of closure and 63 of which are approved for school or district use. Brennan said the board’s first focus is to complete the Wellington Secondary School seismic upgrade project, which is not part of the capital plan because the province already supports this project.

RESIDENTS REMINDED to lock dumpsters, clean up debris near construction sites.

BY JENN M C GARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Police are asking the public to keep an eye out for suspicious behaviour following a spate of small fires around the city over the past 10 days. Firefighters have responded to numerous

suspicious fires around the city since Sept. 15, said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. All were small fires in bushes, dumpsters or piles of debris and found in locations throughout the city, so police don’t believe it is the same person

or group of people responsible for all of them, he said. T h e l at e s t f i re s included a garbage can fire next to a bus stop behind Country Club Centre Monday evening and recycling bins at Woodgrove Centre set ablaze Monday and Tuesday evenings. “We call them fires of opportunity,” said O’Brien. “There’s no intent to burn structures, but the chances of it going sideways

is huge. Or somebody could be seriously injured.” Police are asking residents to help reduce these opportunities by locking dumpsters after hours, emptying dumpsters frequently and cleaning up debris on construction sites or other areas. Rick Kwasnecha, fire prevention officer with Nanaimo Fire Rescue, said the potential for the fires to get much worse is there.

Nanaimo’s fire danger rating is still extreme – the highest. “We’ve responded quickly enough to keep them from spreading and there’s been no wind, so we’ve been fortunate that way,” he said. People are asked to please contact Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 or online at www. nanaimocrimestop pers.com.

TTransit board aims to improve communication TOM FLETCHER BLACK PRESS

The B.C. government will ask local communities to nominate directors for the B.C. Transit board in an effort to improve communication on bus service changes and expansions. Transportation Minister Mary Polak announced Tuesday that communities will also have the option to set up regional transit commissions, similar to the one in place in Greater Victoria. T h e re c o m m e n dations follow a review of B.C. Transit administration, sparked by complaints that the provincial agency was arbitrarily changing service and costs after municipal budgets were set. “We are also making sure that B.C. Transit provides sufficient notice to local governments of any service adjustments, along with the type of information local gover nments need to make timely budget decisions,� Polak said. Joe Stanhope, chairman of the Regional District of Nanaimo, praised the review and B.C. Transit’s efforts to give communities more say. It was Stanhope’s complaints about a doubling of management fees and the proposed withdrawal of new buses from the Nanaimo service that provoked the review. B.C. Transit CEO Manuel Achadinha said there has already been progress on new regional transit authorities.

The ministry will develop a policy for i n t e rc i t y t r a n s i t routes that will focus on shorter trips and timing for commuters, Polak said, while leaving longer bus service to Greyhound and other private bus lines. Po l a k s a i d t h e municipalities in the Greater Victoria T ransit Commission remain split on whether they should transfer their service to the Capital Regional District. The government will extend their ability to nominate commission members, which are now restricted to mayors of key communities. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

project is expected to be paid for largely through reserves. To connect all remaining properties within city limits to sewer services would cost an estimated $15 million. Ruttan said it is unlikely there will be enough money left over in reserves after Green Lake is paid for to fund a similar project at Western Acres. “If we need to borrow long term then it would have to go to referendum,” he said. For her part, Budd said she is willing to consider a financial compromise.

“The thing is, and it’s a catch-22, we can’t subdivide until we have sewers, and density won’t ever be enough until we subdivide,” she said. There are an estimated 70 lots, many of them five acres in size, at Western Acres. The issue is expected to be discussed at an upcoming council meeting. Other parts of Nanaimo not hooked up to city sewer include about 25 lots on Stephenson Point Road, 125 lots on Jingle Pot Road and four lots on Maki Road. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Al Kenning, Nanaimo city manager, said he wouldn’t comment on political promises made in the past, but added the city is under no legal obligation to provide sewer services. “My view is it’s not in our plans.

Developer reclaims property Land slated for a sprawling golf resort south of Nanaimo has been redeemed by its owners after the city purchased both properties in a tax sale in September 2011. In July, Canadian Property Investments paid $39,858 plus interest to reclaim title on 24-hectare 1170 Phoenix Way and $60,990 plus interest for 36.5-hectare 1270 Phoenix Way after failing to pay taxes for the previous three years. Administration costs also apply. Both properties are part of the Oceanview resort and golf course proposal. The plan includes 2,677 multidensity housing units, a spa, golf course, retail centre and hotel. Work on the controversial project stalled as a result of the economic slowdown. Brian Clemens, Nanaimo’s director of finance, said about 30 properties in last September’s tax sale were redeemed by their owners. The 2012 tax sale took place on Monday. The city purchased all seven properties listed.

Search calls up for local group

I

ALL CALL-OUTS had positive outcomes.

BY JENN M C GARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

After a quiet summer, Nanaimo Search and Rescue volunteers responded to three callouts last week. The week started with a mutual aid call from the Ladysmith search and rescue group looking for a man and his four-year-old daughter on Sept. 16, said Kevin McNeill, NSAR past president and spokesman. The two were located before Nanaimo volunteers left home base. Next came a call from Nanaimo RCMP on Sept. 18 about a 31-year-old autistic man who had gotten lost while biking in the Westwood Lake area with his mother. “She turned right, he turned left and when she looked around, he was gone,” said McNeill. Before volunteers could start combing the area, another bicyclist found the man and alerted police, who were stationed in the parking lot at Westwood. Then on Wednesday morning, searchers went out to Cedar to look for the owner of a car parked along a laneway leading to a farmer’s field. McNeill said volunteers started searching around 9 a.m. and received word around 11 a.m. that the man had taken a ferry to the mainland. His next-of-kin told searchers that the man often left his car somewhere in Cedar to avoid

Events

parking at the terminal, he added. Last week was the busiest the group has been in a while – McNeill can only recall volunteers getting called out once all summer. “Historically, the summer months are quiet,” he said. “But then once September hits, it seems to pick up again. We didn’t have anything on the [Nanaimo River] this year and usually there’s at least one. Of course, it was cold right up until the end of July.” In other news, after about a year of fundraising, the group has replaced its two road rescue trucks. McNeill said volunteers originally hoped to replace the command truck and had about $110,000 toward the $170,000 needed, but decided to focus on the road rescue trucks instead after the federal government scrapped the Joint Emergency Preparedness Program, through which the society hoped to secure a grant. “We can run local searches out of the hall and it would have been another two or three years before we could replace the command vehicle,” said McNeill. The group bought two pickup trucks, one used and one new, for about $90,000, which will be used to carry rescue gear and volunteers on searches and will help people focus on the rescue at hand. “There was always the chance the old ones would break down on us,” said McNeill.

Pink hues in the park for annual run BY JENN M C GARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Beban Park’s sports fields will be more pink than green Sunday (Sept. 30) during the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s CIBC Run for the Cure. Hundreds of Nanaimoites turn out for the event decked out in pink in support of loved ones who are fighting or have lost the fight with breast cancer. “We’re expecting about 1,200 people this year,” said Ruth Christmas, volunteer run co-director. “It’s a lot of fun, a lot of excitement on the field that morning. It’s emotional, but it’s an amazing day. So many people are there with their families supporting each other. You see a lot of entertaining costumes, lots of pink everywhere.” The run is the foundation’s largest single-day, volunteer-led national event in Canada in support of breast

cancer research, awareness and education. More than $30 million was raised during events across the country last year. The Nanaimo event raised more than $218,000 and it looks like the city will raise at least that this year as well, said Christmas. “Our goal is to exceed what we did last year,” she said. The run starts and ends at the soccer field in Beban Park. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., the opening ceremonies start at 9 a.m. and the run – a one- or five-kilometre loop that people can walk or run – starts at 10 a.m. “It’s totally family-oriented. People bring their dogs, their kids and strollers,” said Christmas. “Lots of people walk the route.” The event also features face painting, temporary tattoos, snacks courtesy of Thrifty Foods, produce from Windset Farms, balloon animals courtesy of Steve Marshall Ford,

EDITORIAL

Density factor in decision When Nanaimo city council agreed to pay the entire $3.2-million cost of installing sewer service for 107 property owners at Green Lake last year, it opened the door for other neighbourhoods to request the same deal. Now, residents of Western Acres, one of Harewood’s oldest subdivisions, are walking through that door looking for a similar deal. At first glance, their argument looks similar to that of Green Lake. Septic tanks are beginning to leak, possibly affecting riparian areas, political promises to install sewers were made during amalgamation in the 1970s, and city taxes are paid by residents without the benefit of full services, though that money benefits others. It is expected the cost, too, would be similar at an estimated $3 million, an amount city officials say is simply not available. The difference between Green Lake and Western Acres comes down to one issue: residential density. City council tried for decades to have federal infrastructure grants approved for Green Lake without success because the money needed was deemed too much for a relatively low number of people to be serviced. Because of its large lots, Western Acres has even fewer people, so federal funding is not likely. This highlights the crux of the problem. Since amalgamation, Nanaimo and other cities have been burdened with increased responsibilities and expenditures while relying on a sole source of revenue in property taxes — the money is spread thinner every day. Green Lake residents were lucky to receive what they did and the precedent that decision set was lofty. In a perfect world, every resident within city limits would have access to the benefits of sewer services. Unfortunately, the people at Western Acres may have piped up a little too late.

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, a job seeker and a parent is that free money encourages aimless study, and the selection of courses that are appealing rather than safe investments. We already have far too much of that, and I think most students today would be better off with a bigger 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. ◆ Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Thursday, September 27, 2012 Nanaimo News Bulletin

Public needs a dog-free space showing otherwise, as if the before mentioned dog conduct is acceptable and normal and nary a word should be raised against it. Dog owners have been given a chance to be responsible and all too often show that they are incapable of doing so. Instead they are selfish, narcissistic, and self-absorbed, as if the whole world exists to pander to them and their dogs who, in their minds, can do no wrong even when that is all they seem to be capable of. The city has 12 off-leash dog parks, more than a dozen other on-leash parks.

To the Editor, The utter disregard for the law by dog owners in Linley Valley must stop. The law states all dogs must be leashed in Linley Valley, yet all too often that is ignored as irresponsible dog owners allow their mutts to run amok in the park. Many dogs are aggressive, harassing and even vicious – charging, lunging with teeth bared at someone just going for a walk in the valley. The reaction by their owners is usually ‘oh, he is friendly’, ‘a good dog’ or ‘doesn’t bite’ when the behaviour of the dog is clearly

Why can’t people have just one place where they can go to in peace to be close to nature without being accosted by moronic dog owners and their pets? Linley Valley should be that one place. The people of Nanaimo, who the vast majority feel as I do, will concur that Linley Valley should be named dog free with all dogs banned, with heavy patrols and zero-tolerance enforcement by animal control. Dog owners have only themselves to blame as this is just a reflection of the reality that they have created. Tom McCartney Nanaimo

Litterbugs have no respect for community To the Editor, I recently moved to Nanaimo in May with my girlfriend. We absolutely love it here and find it to be somewhat of an unspoiled, more natural and down to earth version of Vancouver. However, one thing seems to have really started to bother me in the last five months that I’ve lived here. It seems that Nanaimo has a major littering problem. I would ask the residents of this amazing city to please have some pride and respect for the community. Seeing garbage lining the streets is disgusting. I would hope the city and Nanaimo RCMP reward litter bugs with stiff fines. It may be a smart idea to increase the size of allowed garbage bins and increase the frequency of garbage pick up to help with this problem. Dean Ben Nanaimo

Motor vehicle law waste of policing To the Editor, Since 99 per cent of the people I have talked to about this topic are unaware of it, I am writing the paper to educate some readers who do not know it is a crime to leave your vehicle parked with the windows left open. This is a violation under the Motor Vehicle Act 191-section 2 and you can be fined $81.

Hidden expenses will up logo cost To the Editor, Re: Parents angry over logo cost, Sept. 18. There is no new facilities plan, but a $24,000 contract for a new school district logo.

Now... your favourite newspaper at the click of a mouse. www.nanaimobulletin.com

I think this is a sad situation when police officers in Nanaimo have no real criminals to catch, but have time to ticket hardworking people who park their vehicle to go into work, leaving the windows open on a hot, 25 C day. I was told that ignorance of the law is not a defence, so if anyone did not know this law before, hopefully they are educated now and won’t get a ticket that I believe is totally ridiculous. I don’t know the rules for convertible owners, so they will have to look into that. T.L. Ludvigson Nanaimo

Trustees continue spending foolishly To the Editor, Re: School district mulls changes to busing system, Sept. 22. It was rather foolish of me to think our elected officials at the district school board had learned from not consulting with parents about how, or if they should, be spending money from the education budget. After reading the latest news, one thing has become quite clear — they don’t seem to care what parents have to say about

their frivolous spending plans. Now they want to spend $22,400 on a review of the district’s school busing system. As a taxpayer and parent, I would like them to explain why is it necessary to hire a firm from Maryland to give them the answers about what is, or is not working, in the district of Nanaimo. Are they serious? There is a much cheaper and easier way to get the information. Consult with bus drivers – they can give you all the necessary information on fuel consumption, ridership, etc. So far trustees have foolishly spent $46,633 – money that could have been better spent on special needs students, replacing worn text books and school lunch programs. If there is a need for a review, it should be a thorough review on how our elected school officials have been spending the education budget. It makes one wonder what else they have been spending money on and what other surprises they have for parents. Doug Wristen Nanaimo

Save the planet by sending the children outside SCIENCE MATTERS David Suzuki with Leanne Clare

Pushing our kids out the door may be the best way to save the planet. In a survey conducted for the David

Suzuki Foundation, 70 per cent of Canadian youth said they spend an hour or less a day in the open air. And when they are out, it’s

usually to go from one place to another. Nearly half the young people surveyed said they don’t have enough time to

join programs that would involve them in outdoor activities. For someone of my generation this is almost unfathomable.

When I was a kid, being outside was the norm. Rain or shine, our parents would tell us to get out of the house.

As a teenager in London, Ont., my sanctuary was a swamp. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d return home at the end of a day, often soaking wet and covered in mud, with my collection of insects, salamander eggs and turtles. That piqued my interest in science. Being outside made me a happy, healthy kid and made me feel connected to the world around me. In just a few generations, life has changed dramatically for children. A U.S. survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation found young people are engaged with entertainment media for an average of seven and a half hours a day. Over seven days, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longer than the average work week. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame children for occupying themselves with Facebook rather than playing in the mud. Our society doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put a priority on connecting with nature. In fact, too often we tell them itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dirty and dangerous. Families play a key role in getting kids outside. The David Suzuki Foundation survey found that youth were 20 per cent more likely to take part in outdoor programming or explore nature on their own if they spent time outside from an early age. More than half the youth said they enjoy spending unstructured time in nature. They want to be outside in their neighbourhoods with their friends catching bugs, watching birds or riding bikes. What we need to do is encourage them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and sometimes just get out of their way. We need to ask teachers and school board representatives to take students outside regularly to incorporate the natural world into everything they learn. And we need to stop making the outdoors scary for children. If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never raise the next generation of environmental stewards to help protect and celebrate the wonders of nature. After all, people are more likely to look after something they have come to know and cherish. www.davidsuzuki.org r

Biologists track toad numbers BY BRUCE PATTERSON Tegan Padgett was working as a whalewatching guide in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico when she decided it was time to learn more about the natural world. “I knew I’d like to work in the field of biology so I decided I’d go back to school,” said Padgett, now in her fourth year at Vancouver Island

University. “I like the combination of field work combined with lab work. Field work is always fun, especially when you are out on a lake looking at toads.” Padgett spent a lot of time looking at Western toads over the summer as she worked with VIU biology technician Hitomi Kimura on a research project aimed at assessing

the status of the species in central Vancouver Island. Kimura has been observing Western toad activity in the Morrell Lake area for several years. Over the past two years, VIU’s research awards committee has supported her project conducted in collaboration with the B.C. Ministry of the Environment and the Morrell Nature

Recent reports about dog attacks in B.C. are good reminders of the need to be vigilant when approaching and interacting with canine companions. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been bitten by a dog, chances are it was by a pet or a neighbouring dog. But there are clear signals to watch for and steps that can be taken to reduce chances of a nasty dog bite. Play nice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; By far, most children are bitten while playing with dogs. What starts out as fun can lead to over-excitement, and because dogs use their mouths and teeth to grab in the same way we use our hands, accidental bites can occur when dogs get over stimulated. If a dog is getting over-excited, call a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;time outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and walk away until he or she is calmer. If the dog is prone to overstimulation, play fetch instead of chase or tug-of-war games. Beware of the protector â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Many dogs have a tendency to protect things they value such as their toys, food or beds. They will usually give you clear signals that they are in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;protector modeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hunching over a food bowl or toy, emitting low growls and barring their teeth. Never put your hand

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or worse, your face â&#x20AC;&#x201C; near a dog in protection mode or try to remove the object. If this protection behaviour continues, seek some training or behavioural counselling for your pet. Give an anxious dog space â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fearful or anxious dogs are the most likely to bite without warning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they are unsure of new situations and act out of self-preservation and fear rather than a g g re s s i o n . T h e i r signals can include a lowered head, tail low or between their legs, lip licking and ears folded back. They may appear sad and scared, but can quickly snap if they feel cornered and unable to escape. Leave the lonely alone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Seeing a lonely dog by itself in a backyard â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or worse, tied to a chain â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can touch our hearts and make us want to reach out to offer our companionship. But backyard dogs can be unsociable and fearful. In particular, chained dogs may bite if their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fight or flightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; response kicks in and they have no means of escape. Their tail may be wagging â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but not all tail wagging is friendly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it can also be a warning sign.

Collaborative dance works project explores memory and shares the global human experience with audience members BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

P

eople leave traces of themselves on the lives of others, whether it’s a remnant of emotion, a moment preserved in memory or how a physical reaction of their intersecting lives affect each other. Dancer Jennifer McLeishLewis explores memory and how people leave traces on each other’s lives during her performance Leaving Traces, choreographed by Daelik. She’ll also perform her own piece Reverie, which explores the idea of the sacred feminine and its inverse, objectification. “I would love if people had a visceral reaction to my piece,

like a sensorial experience in their body,” said McLeish-Lewis, adding even if people have conflicting interpretations of the story or don’t see a story she hopes it makes them feel something inside their bodies. She creates her pieces through assembled images that flash in her mind. She works to link those images through movement and incorporate different structures of dance to communicate her story to the audience. McLeish-Lewis said every dancer’s process of creating dances is unique. Her performances are part of a collaboration with Crimson Coast Dance Society entitled Leaving Traces – New Dance Works.

Clippers face off with Bestwick’s Grizzlies

I

ISLAND RIVALS play this Friday in Nanaimo. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

A lot of people circled this hockey game on the schedule, and it’s almost here. The Nanaimo Clippers face the Victoria Grizzlies on Friday (Sept. 28) at Frank Crane Arena. The Grizz (5-1-0-1) are in first place and the Clips (3-1) have only one loss, but the on-ice matchup, for one night, might be secondary in some ways. A share of fans at Frank Crane on Friday are going to be interested to see Bill Bestwick behind the visitors’ bench, directing his Grizzlies. “I think everybody circles dates on their calendar when you’re in sport, of games that may have a special prominence in your mind for one reason or another,” said Bestwick. “I would be less than genuine if I said this game wasn’t a little bit more meaningful than some others on our schedule.” Bestwick coached the Clippers for more than a decade before his firing in 2011, leading the club to B.C. Hockey League championships in 2004 and 2007. “I spent 12 years on that bench and across the hall and I’m very proud of everything that we accomplished as an organization across that hall,” he said. “So it’s a pleasure to be able to return, absolutely.

Bill Bestwick instructs Nanaimo Clippers players at an August 2009 training camp at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. Bestwick, now bench boss of the Victoria Grizzlies, will coach against the Clippers this Friday (Sept. 28) at Frank Crane Arena. Faceoff is at 7 p.m.

I’m really looking forward to the game.” The Clippers lineup he sees on the opposite bench won’t resemble the one he remembers, as Nanaimo’s coach and general manager Mike Vandekamp has since overhauled the roster. Only one player remains from the Bestwick era – Kyle Kramer, an alternate captain on the Clips. “It’s obviously going to be different,” Kramer

said. “Playing for Bill for a couple years there, I’ve got so much respect for the guy. But at the same time it’s just another game.” The Clippers have only seen the Grizzlies in preseason action, so they don’t know exactly what to expect from the Island Division leaders. Kramer said he knows Bestwick stresses hard work. “So they’re going to come out with a lot of grit and they’re going to work

hard,” Kramer said. “But I think that’s what we base our team around, too. It’s going to come down to who outworks who, and when you put that in persepective, it comes down to that every night, every time you play.” The visiting coach won’t be the only one on the Grizzlies bus who will be making a homecoming, of sorts. Victoria’s top three scorers so far this year

are Gerry, Myles and Leo Fitzgerald, all of them former Clippers. Gerry is the reigning BCHL Player of the Week. Bestwick said he expects, and hopes, that the rivalry between the two organizations will build. Kramer said he already considers the rivalry with the Grizzlies to be as heated as with any Island team. “Whenever we get a chance to go up against those guys, we really get up for the game,” he said. Trevor Fitzgerald, Clippers captain, said his team will bring a physical game and try to force the play. “It’s not really who we play, it’s how we play,” he said. “It doesn’t really matter that they’re the first-placed team, it’s so early in the season. They got a couple wins off the start. That’s good for them. But it doesn’t really matter to us.” Vandekamp said the standings would certainly indicate that the Grizzlies are playing well, and said his team would be prepared. “Obviously that’s going to be a big game,” he said. “They all are.” GAME ON … The Clippers and Grizzlies face off at 7 p.m. Friday at Frank Crane Arena. Tickets will be available at the door … Friday’s tilt is the first of three games in three days for the Clips, who visit the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (3-3-0-1) on Saturday and then host the Coquitlam Express (4-1) on Sunday at 3 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

V.I. Raiders refocused to play Sun The V.I. Raiders, and their fans, will really enjoy the benefits of an unbalanced schedule at this stage of the season. The B.C. Football Conference’s move toward more games among top-tier teams sees the Raiders host the Okanagan Sun this Saturday (Sept. 29), a week after Nanaimo toppled the Langley Rams. That first-place showdown between the Raiders and Rams was highly anticipated and hard-fought, and there could be a danger of a letdown after a game like that. But not with the Okanagan Sun coming to town. “Okie’s always good, no matter what, whatever their record is this year,” said Whitman Tomusiak, Raiders receiver. “I’ve never had a game against Okie that hasn’t been a tough, physical game.” The Raiders have already defeated the Sun twice this season, but both games were close enough that the outcome was in doubt in the second half. Nanaimo believes, however, after its win last weekend, that it’s reached a new level as a football team. “We know we can beat any team in this league. So it’s a good confidence booster,” Tomusiak said. ◆ See ‘V.I.’ /B3

The ’Dawgs were dominant on both sides of the ball, and built up a 44-14 halftime lead before the third and fourth quarters were played run-time. “It was pretty complete in a lot of areas,” said Rob Stevenson, Barsby coach. “We were uptempo when we had the ball in our hands. Defensively we came out perhaps a little too jacked up and we had a couple breakdowns in pursuit.” Both times the Eagles scored, the Bulldogs had an immediate answer. The home

team got the scoring started, but Jacob Odynsky returned the ensuing kickoff past midfield and finished the drive himself with a two-yard TD run. A two-point conversion gave Barsby a lead it never relinquished. “We were running the ball on them really well and they couldn’t stop us on offence,” said James Robinson, Barsby lineman. “Defensively ... we just kept pounding on them and they started to break down and after a while we really slowed them down and then we were stopping them pretty consistently.” Brandon Parker had three touchdowns, two on the ground and then one on a 37-yard TD toss from Brody Taylor. Odynsky finished with two rushing majors and Justin Cook and Frankie Shaw also scored TDs on run plays, as did Dexter Shea who scored on a 31-yard run. Barsby’s

V.I. wants to stay on top ◆ From /B1 “I hope we can keep the momentum that we’ve got from the last two weeks,” Whitman Tomusiak said. Jon Jones, Raiders linebacker, said his team, during the game in Langley, “got to a place that we haven’t been to.” So the challenge is to stay there this coming weekend against the Sun. “We don’t want to dip to their level,” said Jones. “Now that we’re at this point, being on top, I want us to be able to even be better so we don’t have to worry about fighting it out for [first place] again. It’s going to take hard work. We’ve got to work even harder than when we were at the bottom, just to maintain our status of being at the top.” It will take a focused week of practice and preparation, players

lines, definitely some words are exchanged and a couple of slights are handed out on the field. It’s good, healthy competition.” GAME ON … The Raiders and Sun kick off Saturday at 2 p.m. at Caledonia Park. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The Nanaimo Redmen can identify some of the reasons for their struggles, but they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet managed to solve the problems. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vancouver Mainland Football League midget team lost 28-21 to the North Delta Longhorns on Sunday at May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park. It was the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth straight singledigit loss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just assignment mistakes,â&#x20AC;? said Sean Roden, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; re not physically being beat, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re beating ourselves with foolish play â&#x20AC;Ś The defence is not in synch. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re blowing assignments and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largely just from not having enough quality

reps in practice.â&#x20AC;? T he Redmen got down 28-7 but continued to battle. They recovered an onside kick that led to their third touchdown, then tried another onside kick with a minute and a half to go but were unsuccessful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we had it together, we made some good playsâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? said Roden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All we can do is keep pushing forward.â&#x20AC;? Trent Wright caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Dylan Tucker and Wright was also strong defensively. Devon Carli scored a six-yard rushing TD and John Evenson scored on a two-yard sweep. GAME ON â&#x20AC;Ś The Redmen (0-4) visit the Coquitlam Falcons (4-0) on Sunday (Sept. 30). The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next home game is Oct. 7 when it hosts the Cowichan Bulldogs in a 1 p.m. kickoff at Pioneer Park. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

VIU men win, women close The VIU Mariners men’s soccer team came up big with two shutout wins on the weekend, and the women’s team could be close to its own breakthrough. Vancouver Island University’s men’s and women’s sides hosted the UBC-Okanagan Heat on Saturday and the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack on Sunday at Mariner Field. The M’s men beat the Heat 3-0 and then defeated the ’Pack 2-0. The women tied UBC-O 1-1 and fell to TRU 2-0. Player of the game for VIU in its first win was Jamie Taylor, who scored a goal to put the home team up 2-0. Drissa Bouare and Chris Merriman were other scorers. In the second game Stephen Ewashko scored on a penalty kick early in the second half, and then Bouare headed in an insurance goal. Defensive player Ben Leggett was man of the match and goalkeeper Robbie Cochrane was solid in earning another shutout. “I was very pleased to see how our players were able to adapt to two very different styles of play in one weekend,” said Bill Merriman, VIU coach, in a press release. The Mariners women began the weekend with a gutsy performance against the Heat. The visitors who opened the scoring midway through the second

Step in to Muse and Merchant and look for a bit of history. From a petrified wood end table to refurbished film studio lighting, you’ll find furniture and accessories with a story. Situated beside the sister store, ScanDesigns, the upscale industrial designed show room highlights a new trend in home furnishing. “Our customers are environmentally aware,” said Anders Jorgensen owner and creator of the new space. “So we focus on sourcing the highest quality recycled and/or refurbished items to match and accent the sofas, chairs and bedroom accessories.” It’s like walking into a well laid-out museum. Jorgensen put a lot of thought into the new store; he didn’t just want to highlight “eco-chic” products, he wanted to create a space that was energy efficient. Added

Super high output defines Taurus SHO BY LORNE DRURY he SHO was once one of the hottest cars on the block, and the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO packs quite a punch, too. The model sits atop the Taurus trim ladder and is the macho face in the lineup, although it is less of a muscle car than the original SHO that Ford produced from 1989-99. A decade later, the next generation SHO returned as a 2010 model. For 2013, the SHO has undergone a minor refresh to help differentiate it from the rest of the Taurus lineup, which also includes SE, SEL and limited models. SHO stands for super high output. But unlike other highperformance cars that boast big V8s, the SHO does its thing with a twin turbocharged V6

The SHO is the upper-tier model in the 2013 Taurus lineup and serves as the ‘macho’ entry of the bunch, competing with other automakers’ muscle cars.

EcoBoost engine. The SHO doesn’t look the part of a high-performance machine, but then again it didn’t back in the ’90s when it was the ultimate sleeper. Today, it is a handsome, fullsize car that has the looks of a basic family sedan, but the heart of a racecar underneath. The Taurus SHO performance package is new for 2013. It includes a special sport-tuned suspension with unique dampers and springs to provide superior road holding across different speed ranges. The springs are stiffer and combined with unique shock absorber damper valve calibrations helps increase vehicle traction and driver control. The brakes are beefed up with high-performance brake pads that hold up better under

Ford sedan ponies up when it comes to horsepower ◆ From /B13 What sets the SHO apart from the rest of the Taurus lineup is the twin-turbo EcoBoost V6, making 365 horsepower at 5,500 rpm. The other models get a 288hp V6 engine that is powerful enough for everyday driving, but not the ‘SHO stopper’ of the top tier model. The twin-turbo V6 in the SHO is mated with a six-speed SelectShift automatic with steering wheel mounted paddle-shifters. The car jumps from zero100 kilometres per hour in under six seconds – not bad for a full-size, fourdoor five-passenger sedan. With direct injection and the twin turbos, the SHO avoids the dreaded engine lag by employing impellers that spool up quickly. But it’s not just straightline acceleration that makes the SHO a driver’s car – it can also handle the twisties quite well for a big car that weighs 1,969 kilograms. It does feel like a big car, but it isn’t the huge, lumbering beast that full-size sedans used to be. Ford has enhanced the SHO’s stability control

PHOTO SUBMITTED

The SHO has a high rear decklid and the small spoiler helps differentiate it from other Taurus models. A generous-size trunk and seating for five makes it as much of an everyday car as it is a track vehicle when you add the SHO Performance Package.

system with a new feature called torque vectoring whereby a slight amount of braking is applied to the inside front wheel to increase vehicle stability in curves. Further, a new technology called curve control senses when a vehicle is entering a curve too quickly and can apply four-wheel braking to

reduce speed and help drivers follow their intended path. A number of sound deadening measures make the 2013 SHO a quieter car inside. All in all, the cabin is nicely finished, comfortable and functional with more soft-touch materials than in the past. Much of the electronics has also been updated

with newer, less finicky versions of Ford’s Sync system and MyFord Touch, but I’m still not a big fan of either. I do like the MyKey feature that allows the vehicle owner to limit the car’s top speed, keep the audio volume to a set level and not allow the vehicle stability control to be deactivated – great for parents who want some

control over their teenagers in the car. Active park assist will parallel park the car for you, but I prefer to do it myself, thank you. Behind the wheel you know you’re in a big American sedan as the cabin is spacious and the seats are comfortable and obviously designed for larger North American

derrieres. Rear visibility is restricted because of the rising beltline and decklid spoiler, so the rear view camera is an important feature. Outside, the SHO is differentiated from other Taurus models with a black mesh grille, high intensity discharge headlamps and a small decklid spoiler. All in all, this top-of-theline Taurus puts on a good ‘SHO’ for the driver, but its pricing puts it in high-rent territory. Nevertheless, the Taurus SHO is a fun drive and its all-wheel drive is a feature not found on these other contenders. AUTO KNOW … Ford has revealed that the all-new EcoSport, a compact, fuel efficient sport-utility vehicle will go on sale in Europe within the next 18 months as Ford expands its lineup. EcoSport is based on Ford’s global B-segment platform and combines small car practicality with the flexibility, spaciousness, agility and style of a SUV. The aerodynamic EcoSport features a large grille; slim headlights, and cladding on the side sills and bumpers.

A BIG BOUQUET OF THANKS to Randy and staff at the Quality Foods on Turner Road. Your generous donation to the annual K-40 Kinsmen Club of Nanaimo summer picnic was appreciated and made our picnic a huge success. Thanks from all of us in Kin.

A BIG BEEF F to whoever is responsible for cutting trees in the Jingle Pot area and destroying the beauty of it all. A BEEF F to the man standing on the patio of a pub who yelled at me to get away from him when I was walking by with my dog. His words motivated me to do just that, but then I nearly came faceto-face with a skunk eating french fries on the patio near him. A bit more communication was needed. What a rude, confusing way to warn someone about a potentially harmful situation. A BEEF F to people who tailgate and then pass your vehicle with a disgusted stare. Where is your kindness? Look to the "L" on the back of the vehicle. Learning to drive is nerve wracking enough without people like you on the road. Have some compassion and patience – you were a beginner driver at one time, too.

q

A BOUQUET to those who work in the service sector. They are always smiling and have a friendly disposition.

THANK YOU to everyone for making Irwin's celebration of life a beautiful day – one full of love, smiles, hugs and laughter, just as he would have wanted it to be. He will be remembered for the person he was. From the Hogan family. A BOUQUET OF SMILES to Helen at Save-On-Foods at Country Club Centre. Always helpful. Always smiling. Always a great attitude. It makes a difference. Keep up the good work. A COMPASSIONATE BOUQUET to the woman who rushed to my side when my dog was having a medical issue in Colliery Dam Park. Thank you for caring.

A BEEF. Someone has taken it upon themselves to limb at least three tall evergreen trees near my north Nanaimo house, leaving just a small amount of green branches near the top. No doubt the first big windstorm will probably finish the job of improving a homeowner's sightline by toppling the trees. A BEEF F to the drivers who don’t drive the posted speed limit. Either ride a bicycle or take transit. A TAXPAYER BEEF. Parts of the city are looking neglected – grass and total maintenance of parks, etc. Who is doing the contracting?

A BEEF. If you saw a car stopped with hazard lights flashing on the Parkway and my granddaughter walking down the meridian with two girls, including one on crutches, wouldn't you assume they needed help? Shame on drivers for not offering assistance. A STINKY BEEF F to a transit driver who was looking at his cellphone in his hand while driving. How could you put our lives at risk? I am sure someone talked to you about it. A HUGE BEEF F to parents who allow their so-called responsible young adults to ride unlicensed dirt bikes and ATVs on the streets in Cinnabar Valley. Not only are these vehicles unlicensed and illegal, but also the way they speed up and down roads is dangerous. Lock up the keys before someone gets badly hurt or worse. A SMELLY BEEF F regarding the stench from an industrial business near my residence. A BEEF F to cyclists who ride at night in dark clothing with no lights. An accident waiting to happen.

ith great sadness we announce the passing of Jack Cameron; great brother, loving uncle, sincere friend. Robert â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jackâ&#x20AC;? Cameron, was born February 14, 1950 in Mission; passed away September 17, 2012 in Nanaimo. Unfortunately, Jack lost the ďŹ ght with cancer but he certainly picked the round. Jack did not give up easily and even in the last stages he never lost his sense of humour. Jack was a man with million dollar ideas, and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack of All Trades.â&#x20AC;? He obtained his Auto Body certiďŹ cation in 1982, working for 25 years and operating two auto body businesses. Jack was known to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;it has to shine before it will sell!â&#x20AC;? Finding work was sometimes difďŹ cult but Jack endured many harsh conditions and always remained positive. He did lots of travelling in his younger years, with a love for Thailand. Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sense of humour and knack for conversation was forefront. He could always make his nephews laugh. Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exterior was rough but he was truly a kind man and expressed his love for family. He recognized the good in people and was always willing to lend a helping hand to all. Jack will be fondly remembered by his family and friends. He is survived by his brother, Oscar (Verna) Cameron; nephews, Gavin and Clayton of Nanaimo; brother, Richard Cameron; nephews, Kyle and Kevin; niece, Crystal of Maple Ridge; sister, Mary (Bill) Bates, of Chilliwack; nephew, Robert; great nephew, Duncan; great niece, Shayna; sister, Linda Cameron; nephew, Cameron; niece, Candace; niece, Deborah (Alan) Dempster and great nephew, William. The family will have a private gathering in Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honor. There will be no public service, by his request. Jack had compassion and admiration for all his friends. You meant the world to him, please have a toast to his life and humour as you knew him. As Jack would say...â&#x20AC;?Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my wishes and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sticking to it!â&#x20AC;? The family would like to thank the staff at NRGH for their care and support. A special thank you goes out to Bill and Carol Tysdal of Ladysmith for their caring friendship with Jack.
