Green Party MP hopeful steps aside after dead heat

After a coin toss initially decided the Green Party candidacy for Victoria, the winner has stepped aside and thrown his support behind the party’s preferred choice. Trevor Moat, an engineering consultant and board member of the James Bay Neighbourhood Association, was declared the winner against fellow nominee Donald Galloway at the Metro Theatre last Saturday. A third nominee, Mark Loria, dropped out of the race before the nomination meeting. Of the 40 votes cast, both Galloway and Moat received an equal 20 votes. It wasn’t until after Donald Galloway Moat was declared the winner that the pair learned the tie had been broken by a coin toss. “The rules did say if there’s a tie, it will be decided by a coin toss, so that was followed,” said Jared Giesbrecht, Green Party Victoria constituency president. Once Moat discovered he had failed to obtain a majority of support, he decided to step aside for the heavily endorsed Galloway. “I felt that ... my efforts would best be spent in support of the campaign infrastructure that Donald already has in place,” Moat said.

here’s something quixotic about the way Adam Campbell is suiting up for his newest adventure. Campbell, you see, is an ultramarathoner. Before work, after work and on the weekends, the 33-year-old trains full time for long-distance running. From nine to five, however, he’s a lawyer with Hemminger Schmid based in Vic West. Campbell the lawyer also offers his services pro bono to the community.

The challenge being: run a faster marathon time, in a suit, than the current world record holder, Paul Buchanan, who ran the 2009 Dublin Marathon (Ireland) in three hours, 24 minutes. Buchanan’s race is acknowledged by Guinness World Records and Campbell has ironed out the necessary Guinness documentation should he lower Buchanan’s mark on Sunday. The rules are simple: finish the race in a suit. “Mercifully, I don’t have to wear dress shoes,” Campbell said. “I’ll be wearing my favourite pair of racing flats from Frontrunners, which happen to match my tie.” Sharon Tiffin/News staff

On the

RUN

Running for different reasons Stats tell the story

Victorians are serious about health and fitness, but road races see a decline as people shift to triathlon, adventure racing Last in a series here is a dense crush of wall-to-wall people when thousands runners pack the starting line on Menzies street for the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon. The city, it seems, has no shortage of people who run. On any given day, and especially weekends, the number of runners on the trails around Elk Lake or Thetis Lake almost (but not quite) outnumber the dog walkers. Running clinics are flush with hundreds of marathon and half-marathoner hopefuls eying a personal best or training for a first race. But within the ebb and flow of fitness trends, road racing in Greater Victoria peaked about two years ago, and participant numbers are flattening or in decline. The Victoria marathon topped out in 2010 with 13,995 finishers in four events (marathon, halfmarathon, 8K and kids’ race). Last year it hit 11,674 – a 19 per cent drop. The TC10K, the other major running event in Victoria, saw 10,616 finishers in 2010, but dropped to 10,044 finishers this year. “It’s a trend all across B.C. – on average, races are 12 per cent down,” said Bob Reid, treasurer of the Prairie Inn Harriers running club and a long-time race director and coach. “Newer races might be showing growth, but Edward Hill older races are plateauing or dropping slightly.” Reporting An unsteady economy might seemingly influence athletics trends, but Reid doesn’t think so. He points to the growing popularity of sports such as triathlon, which typically have high entry fees and expensive equipment. “The economy doesn’t affect attendance. Money doesn’t have anything to do with it,” Reid said. “People have different interests. A lot like running, but not all like racing. Many people continue running for fitness, health and friendship.” And despite the decline in racing attendance, people aren’t abandoning running. Support for most road race events in Greater Victoria remains strong and entries are far above numbers seen four or five years ago. “It’s amazing we have two large races on the Island, races with over 10,000 (runners),” said Mark Nelson, co-owner of Frontrunners Langford and race director of the Bear Mountain 10K. “A lot of big cities don’t have two events of that size. “In sheer quantity, there are nearly two events every weekend, on average, in the running and triathlon worlds ... with the majority in the Victoria area.” Nelson said its difficult to pin down why some runners flock to some races and ignore others. This year’s first Goddess Run women’s only run sold out and had some 1,426 finishers in the half marathon, 10K and 5K races. “The Victoria Goddess run did a good job. It’s a well-organized event that had a solid team,” Nelson said. “It had a great turnout for a first year event that had no history.” The running culture in Victoria remains vibrant, but a race directors sense a definite shift in attitude. Many recreational athletes have used running to build a fitness base and a launch point to other endurance sports, such as triathlon and adventure racing. Others have used running as another tool in their overall fitness regime that might include boot camps or CrossFit. “There isn’t so much a running craze than an outdoor fitness craze,” Nelson said. “A lot of people might do trail running, the Victoria marathon, (Mind over Mountain) triathlon. A lot of people do a bit of everything.” Phil Nicholls, owner of Island Runner and national-level marathoner in the 1990s, says Victoria’s running culture has shifted over the

A runner makes her way along the Victoria waterfront. decades, from a relatively small band of dedicated runners who trained intensely to a popularized activity for thousands of people looking for a challenge and to stay fit. Nicholls points to the rapid growth of the Victoria half-marathon. From 2009 to 2010 it added more than a thousand entrants to hit more than 5,700 people coursing through the route. The marathon entries stayed steady at about 2,600 for those years. “There is definitely also a health boom; the outdoor fitness boom is there,” said Nicholls, the race director for the McNeill Bay HalfMarathon. “I think we are one of the better cities overall. People take fitness seriously as a lifestyle.” editor@saanichnews.com

The 33rd annual GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon weekend kicks off today and Saturday as more than 11,000 people flood into the Victoria Conference Centre for race package pickup, to tour the race expo and attend the speakers series. The marathon is on Sunday (Oct. 7). Participants will be on the race route starting with the marathon walkers at 6:30 a.m. The 8K road race starts at 7:15 a.m., the half marathon (21.1 km) starts at 7:30 a.m. and the marathon (42.2 km) at 8:45 a.m. All races start on Menzies Street at Kingston Street, and finish in front of the B.C. legislature on Belleville Street.

Ferry fares going up, sailings to be reduced Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. Ferries has the green light to raise fares by up to 12 per cent over three years and passengers should expect less frequent sailings on some major runs. Increases in the fare cap of roughly four per cent a year were approved Monday by B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee.

The ferries regulator also directed B.C. Ferries to come up with more than $54 million in savings over four years, including $30 million through service cuts. The company will trim some sailings starting Oct. 9, particularly when vessels are running with light passenger loads on major routes between the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. Regular odd-hour sailings

won’t be affected, but nearly 100 even-hour sailings will be scrapped this fall and winter to save an estimated $1 million. Tsawwassen-Duke Point sailings that have been running less than 25 per cent full account for nearly half the planned cuts. B.C. Ferries reported declining fare revenue in 2011, recording the lowest overall number of passengers in 21 years. Vehicle traffic was at a

13-year low for the year. The province injected an extra $80 million into the ferry service this year to avert the threat of considerably higher fare increases as well as deeper service cuts. One option Macatee expects the corporation to explore is the possible conversion of some ferries to natural gas, reducing the impact of high fuel costs. editor@vicnews.com

Esquimalt High first stop on Tour’s final day Tour de Rock final celebration happens today in Centennial Square Don Descoteau News staff

The excitement around this morning’s (Oct. 5) arrival of riders on the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock has been steadily building for the past week at Esquimalt High. It began last Friday with a full assembly, during which teachers got pied in the face to raise money for the charity. It grew with daily goodie sales at a lunchtime café, a bottle drive at the Encorp depot on Ellery Street and a car wash on Saturday. And it was a state of controlled bedlam in the gym on Wednesday, as some students volunteered to have their heads shaved while others had their legs waxed, again as a way to bring in money for the cause. To add to the total, there will be a few more pies in the face

today before the riders come by for the first stop on the final day of their 12-day, 1,000-kilometre cycling tour down Vancouver Island, raising money for childhood cancer initiatives. “It’s been really busy,” says Grade 11 student Shayla Zeitz, who has organized the café, stocked with baked goods from Country Grocer and Thrifty Foods and tea from Silk Road. “We’ve tried doing a lot more things this year than past years. We added the café, the car wash and the bottle drive on top of the usual head shaves. I think the students have responded very positively. The buzz (about Tour de Rock) has been there, usually around the café and head shaves.” The school’s Tour de Rock committee set an unofficial goal to beat last year’s take of $4,000 and Zeitz says things are “looking promising” to achieve that. Teacher Jonathan Schneider, who guides the leadership class at Esquimalt High and has worked with fellow teacher Bryn Barker to keep the organizers on track, says the students have really got on board with

the fundraising activities. “It’s been fun. Every year is different and we’re always really happy to see the kids take an interest and get involved,” Schneider says. “Bryn and I have always been really proud of the kids here at Esquimalt.” editor@vicnews.com

“I’ve always maintained my purpose was to see a Green MP elected in Victoria. This, I feel, is our best chance this time around.” Galloway praised Moat’s integrity in making a “selfless” decision, and said his focus will now turn to convincing an electorate that two Green MPs can change the dynamics on Parliament Hill. “He always said he wanted the

person who is the better candidate to go through,” Galloway said. “Now here I am, dealing with a man of absolute honesty and integrity who actually meant it.” Galloway said Moat will play an integral role in his election campaign, working toward a goal they believe is within reach. “It will make such a difference to our political system to have two Greens in Parliament, to have a partner for Elizabeth May,” Galloway said.

Stephane Vigneault, communications co-ordinator for the Green Party of Canada, called the situation “unusual.” He said Galloway’s nomination takes effect immediately. A federal byelection was called in Victoria after Denise Savoie stepped down for health reasons as of Aug. 31. The byelection date has not yet been set by the federal government, but is expected to happen before December. dpalmer@vicnews.com

It seemed like a good way to marry my dual identity as a lawyer and an elite runner.” Predominantly a trail runner, Campbell is no slouch. He finished second overall at his first 100-miler in May, the Mt. Fuji Ultra Trail in Japan, with a time of 19 hours, 26 minutes. That’s about 17 hours longer than the average time it takes to complete an Olympic distance triathlon, the sport which brought Campbell to Victoria in the first place. “My first marathon was Victoria in 2006 and I finished third with a time of 2:29:11. I don’t think I’ll be anywhere close to that, but I’m quite confident that I can break three hours.” Plenty of tutus and maskwearing runners have crossed the Victoria Marathon finish line before, so Campbell isn’t the first to run it in costume. But he might be the most accomplished runner to do so. “I hope (Campbell) doesn’t have too much chafing and I would like to see the state of

the dark of the night. But a tailored business suit is something else. Ultimately, heat on the day is Campbell’s greatest concern. This summer, a Missouri runner tried to break the record but, because he over-heated, he walked to the finish, taking just over five hours. The weather calls for sun and that’s Campbell’s preference. “I think heat is better than rain, I’m sure the suit would get quite heavy if it got drenched,” he said. The suit is a Paul Betenly, donated from Citizen Clothing in Estevan Village. It retails for $695 and comes with a shirt by Culturata and a red Dion tie. Campbell visited Citizen proprietor Patrick Tier for a fitting earlier this week, though Tier was undecided about whether or not he should leave the suit and jacket a little bit loose. “Ultimately I’m doing the run for charity, to raise money for the Access Pro Bono Society, so I’m willing to put up with some significant discomfort to set a respectable time.” sports@vicnews.com

With the NHL season on hold, Victoria bar owners and restaurateurs are lamenting the loss of a guaranteed seat-filler. But another bloodsport could attract an equally passionate crowd, should licensed establishments choose to deviate from sports programming. The first of three U.S. presidential debates between Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney took place Wednesday. The remaining contests continue through this month. “We thought we’d have a party to celebrate,” said Giles Hogya, chair of Democrats Abroad, Victoria chapter. The organization, which helps register expatriate U.S. citizens to vote, held a fundraiser and viewing party in the Maple Room of the Sticky Wicket pub Wednesday night. “Although we are a political organization, our mandate is to register American voters,” Hogya said. Hundreds of U.S. citizens live on Vancouver Island, he noted. Through the website votefromabroad.org, expats can find information on registering to vote in their home state, a process that often differs between states. The U.S. government also has an easy-to-follow website for expat voters, www.fvap.gov. “Many Americans’ votes may be disqualified because the new law says you must register for every single federal election, not just once,” Hogya said.

The group then initiated a campaign in August to target U.S. voters living in Canada from 11 key swing states. “No Republican candidate has ever won the White House without Ohio,” Hogya said. “We have sent thousands of votes to swing states. And I’m going to be looking ... to see if our efforts have borne fruit.” He attended the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina earlier this month and said the national party is “very conscious” of the fact that Canada can deliver thousands of votes. “We’re major player,” Hogya said. Ontario-based Republicans Abroad Canada has no active chapter in B.C., said spokesperson Kelli White, but the streamlining of online voter registra-

tion has made the organization’s efforts to inform expats much easier. “The website, fvap.gov, even allows you to download an emergency absentee ballot in case your official absentee ballot doesn’t arrive from your voting state,” she said. “With all of the accessibility and streamlining that technology has allowed, the number of absentee votes in almost every state has increased.” The next presidential debate takes place Oct. 16, with a vicepresidential debate Oct. 11. There are Democrats Abroad chapters in 51 countries and members in more than 120 countries, according to Hogya.

Handyman fraud artist nets a year in jail Court lauds Saanich police for detecting regionwide scam Edward Hill News staff

A man who committed a string of handyman scams across Greater Victoria will spend another year behind bars. On Sept. 29 in Victoria provincial court, judge Robert Higinbotham sentenced Glen French to 12 months for each of the 10 counts of fraud under $5,000, to be served concurrently. That's added to three months of jail time already served, due to his bail being revoked when he fled to Ontario. Striking a curious image as a 62-year-old with tattoos crawling around his bald head,

French sat quietly through the proceedings. None of the victims attended court. Crown prosecutor Jocelyn Byrne described French, a Sooke resident, as a habitual con artist and liar, who entered into professional looking contracts with his victims for handyman jobs, collected some money up front, and either didn’t complete the work or even start the job. In many cases French skipped out on work by telling customers his father had died, Byrne said. In one case, she added, French ran into one of his victims at a hardware store in Victoria after claiming he would be out of town at his father’s funeral. “Every victim who met Mr. French, despite him being covered in tattoos, said he seemed like a very nice guy.” When French’s customers demanded he finish the work or return the down payment, he often turned viciously aggressive

and threatened his victims with lawsuits. The scams took place in 2009 and early 2010 in Saanich, Victoria, Esquimalt and the West Shore. Byrne said many victims reported their conflicts with French to their local police, but were told it amounted to a civil contract dispute. “That’s how he got away with it for so long,” she said. Saanich police suspected a pattern of fraud when they started investigating French in 2009. “Thank goodness the Saanich police fraud section … looked at the bigger picture,” Byrne said. “In all these cases they proved fraud, and that there was no intent to finish the work.” French was convicted of fraud in Edmonton in 2006 and Saskatoon in 1992. The Better Business Bureau in Alberta and Saskatchewan had issued warnings about him regarding his home renovation

and snow removal services. Const. Karen Phillips with the Saanich police financial crime unit told the News later that co-worker Const. Jerome Rozitis took complaints about French from a number of people, and was the first to notice a possible pattern of fraud. “Rozitis felt it was something that needed to be looked at,” Phillips said. “It was surprising, it was quite a number (of victims).” Phillips worked with the Victoria Better Business Bureau to locate people alleging they’d been ripped off by French. Victim statements and evidence was instrumental in establishing the larger, indisputable pattern of wrongdoing. French will also have two years of probation, which includes not being allowed to advertise services as a handyman and not being allowed to run a service business. editor@saanichnews.com

Leaf it at the Curb

Going off-road Naomi Abbott tests the accessibility of the new Fisherman’s Wharf Park at the official opening ceremony on Tuesday. Visitors were treated to a tour of the largest rain garden in Victoria and learned how it filters water before it reaches the ocean. The park also features a seating area, a “beach area” to play in the sand, a playground, viewing bridge and other amenities.

Scheduled Neighbourhood Leaf Collection

Bagged Leaves Call for Pick-up Service

The 2012 City of Victoria Residential Leaf Pick-up Schedule enables you to look up your neighbourhood’s deadline for placing leaves at the curb. Leaves can be placed in loose piles or in tied, clear, 100% compostable bags. Neighbourhood leaf collection begins in November and ends in January.

From October 22 to December 21, Victoria residents can contact the City’s Parks Division at 250.361.0600 to arrange for their bagged leaves to be picked up at the curb within five working days at no additional charge. Bags must be tied, clear and 100% compostable.

There’s no limit to the number of compostable bags or leaf piles you can set out. If you live in a single family home, duplex or townhouse, watch for your 2012 City of Victoria Residential Leaf Pick-up Schedule in the mail, at City Hall, at local venues or online.

“YOU AND THE LAW” CONDO BUYERS! HELP FOR DELAYS & OTHER PROBLEMS By Janice Mucalov, LL.B.

Interested in buying a condo? For some attractive-looking condo projects, buyers often sign a purchase contract for a unit well before construction starts. It’s not uncommon, however, for the development to be delayed and for the building not to be ready on the expected date. The purchase contract may anticipate this happening and allow the developer to shift the unit’s completion date to a later date by giving you notice. But does this mean that you – faced with not having a place to move into when planned, as well as with an uncertain condo market – never have any recourse or protection for extraordinary delays? Not necessarily. Consider this recent BC appeal court decision which looked at REDMA and helped one buyer. REDMA is the Real Estate Development Marketing Act. It is consumer protection legislation for buyers of “development units” such as condo units (and also subdivision lots and timeshares). A developer who wants to market condos well before construction starts has to file a “disclosure statement” with the Superintendent of Real Estate and also give the disclosure statement (and any amendments) to a buyer by a specified time. The information the condo developer must put in a disclosure statement includes the estimated project completion date. If the developer becomes aware that there is a misrepresentation in the disclosure statement, the developer must prepare an amendment or a new disclosure statement, which they also have to file with the Superintendent and give to buyers. REDMA defines “misrepresentation” as “a false or misleading statement of a material fact or … an omission to state a material fact.” In the recent case, the buyer signed a contract for a luxury Vancouver condo unit in August, 2007. The $1,136,000-plus deposit was to be paid in five installments, and she paid the first two installments

totalling $284,000. She was given copies of the May, 2006 disclosure statement and the only amendment to it. The developer, however, knew well before the buyer signed the contract that the project wouldn’t actually be finished by the estimated September, 2009 completion date set out in the disclosure statement. However, the developer never filed an amended disclosure statement to reflect that the completion date had changed. When she signed, the buyer was informally aware that the development completion date would be somewhat later, about November or December, 2009. But the project’s completion was further delayed. An occupancy permit for her unit was only issued January 25, 2010. (In the meantime, the purchase contract was amended to reflect a later closing date for the unit, which the developer shifted to January 27, 2010 as allowed under the contract.) The buyer refused to go through with the purchase. So the developer sued for the full deposit, while the buyer wanted to get back the $284,000 portion she had already paid. The BC Court of Appeal decided that REDMA spells out what amounts to a misrepresentation and that REDMA required the developer to file an amendment immediately once they knew the disclosure statement was wrong as to a material fact (here, the completion date). Because the developer didn’t do this, it didn’t comply with REDMA and the purchase contract was unenforceable. The buyer got her deposit back, with interest. Of course, any particular case will depend on its own unique facts. But if you’re faced with problems involving a pending condo (or other development unit) purchase, whether it’s construction delays or other issues, and you want to know your options, consider consulting a lawyer.

OUR VIEW

Running for the money This Thanksgiving weekend is a special one, as we reflect on the many ways our community has come together recently. One could not help but be touched by the support of hundreds of folks who came out for the annual Terry Fox Run last month. Their enthusiasm and giving spirit is contagious. The Terry Fox Run for cancer research begins a wave of fundraising that rolls through the fall and into the Christmas season. Last weekend’s CIBC Run for the Cure saw more than 4,000 runners and walkers make their way around Ring Road at the University of Victoria. The event is fun and exciting for participants, who are in equal part sombre and thoughtful. They sang, chanted and wore all manner of pink attire, from boas and tiaras to T-shirts and tutus, emblazoned with names honouring loved ones who are battling or have been taken by breast cancer. More than $30 million was raised across the country by this event for breast cancer research, education and advocacy. Today (Oct. 5) is the finale of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock fundraising ride. The 17 riders trained six months – averaging 4,000 kilometres each – in preparation for the twoweek, 1,000-kilometre ride down Vancouver Island. As well, those who support them spend many months planning and fundraising to make that ride worthwhile. The riders themselves will tell you, it’s not about the cycling, but about the communities, both large and small, that support the tour along the way. And this weekend the 33rd GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon hits the streets of the city. Competitive runners have trained hard for the event, pounding out an estimated 400 kilometres before they hit the ground running this Sunday on Menzies Street near the legislature. Along with thousands of runners come thousands of dollars in donations for more than 20 charities supported by the marathon. The fundraising aspect of the marathon is relatively new, yet has shown great potential as it becomes more culturally intertwined with the race itself. We applaud the physical and fundraising efforts of all these riders, runners and walkers. They help lift all of our spirits, by giving us the opportunity to share their good feelings and help those around us through our charitable donations.

Another coworker is partaking in her fourth Victoria Marathon, doing the half again to raise funds for Lifetime Networks, a non-profit to support people with disabilities in Victoria. It’s not the lure of adrenaline that pulls her, but the emotional high. “It’s uplifting and powerful,” she says. It’s a high to witness the sense of accomplishment on the faces of folks as they cross the finish line, particularly those participants with obvious physical impairments who overcome a lot to make the trek. The online map identifies cheer zones along the way. From what I hear, there are people in costume, those who offer inspirational quotes on posterboard and even entertainers keeping everyone – walkers and athletic specimens alike – in good spirits on the 21-kilometre route. Fortunately, the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon welcomes walkers who can finish the half marathon course in fewer than six hours. I can do that. I’m pretty sure. Probably. I’m no Tough Mudder and have no desire to win or anything… Christine van Reeuwyk is a reporter with the Oak Bay News. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

Being outside sibilities make it difficult to do made me a happy, healthy kid and things like kick around a soccer made me feel connected to the ball or go for a walk with friends in world around me.

As a father, I also encouraged my kids to enjoy time outdoors, and one of my favourite activities now is exploring nature with my grandchildren. In just a few generations, life has changed dramatically for children. Now, they can’t seem to find the time to play outdoors. They sit in front of screens for long periods of time. 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, that’s longer than the average workweek! We can’t blame children for occupying themselves with Facebook rather than playing in the mud. Our society doesn’t put a priority on connecting with nature. In fact, too often we tell them it’s dirty and dangerous.

As parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts we need to start getting out into nature with the young people in our lives. 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. Younger teens reported that getting outside with their families was the best way to connect with nature. Older youth were more likely to explore nature spontaneously, on their own or with friends – likely because parents relax restrictions and allow them to do more of what they want. And what they want is fun and adventure, at least when it comes to being outside. More than half the youth said they enjoy spend-

ing unstructured time in nature. This is great news. What we need to do is encourage them – and sometimes just get out of their way. We need to make sure our neighbourhoods have green spaces. We need to ask teachers and school board representatives to take students outside regularly to incorporate the natural world into everything they learn. If we don’t, we’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. Parents need to remember all the fun times they had outside as kids. They need to trust their children, and kick them out the door like my mom did. david suzuki.org.

Readers respond: Arts education, polio funding cuts Sociology is a safe investment for students Re: Swapping sociology for socket sets (B.C. Views, Sept. 26) Tom Fletcher’s column presents a number of misguided claims designed to lend rhetorical support to the provincial government’s intention to invest in trade and technical school facilities. Fletcher argues that the government’s emphasis on shop upgrades in trade and technical schools implies that “dead-end programs dear to the hearts of last year’s Occupy campers will feel the pinch.” He singles out sociology and women’s studies as examples of “aimless study” leading to unemployment (and social activism). Fletcher’s concern seems to be that today’s students need to select courses that ensure a “safe investment” for themselves, their parents and society at large. Sociology is a safe investment.

Sociologists have always focused on and provided necessary insights into relevant contemporary issues. Sociologists at the University of Victoria are addressing some of the biggest questions facing government today. For instance, UVic sociologists are helping the province design health care policy on older adults living in long-term care facilities – policy shaping the lives of our parents and grandparents. They are conducting research on increasing barriers placed on access to information and the right to know what government is doing. UVic sociologists are conducting policy research on crime control strategies, incarceration and prisons. Last but not least, sociologists at UVic are providing training in research design, quantitative reasoning, objective data analysis and policy-relevant issues that dominate government agendas. When a student majors in sociology, she studies a core

curriculum aimed at developing competent research skills applicable to today’s world (and labour market). Rather than relying on stereotypes and rhetorical nonsense to incite populist indignation, sociology students learn how to enact explanations that are informed by and based on clear evidence. To be sure, sociologists are passionate about and deeply committed to their research pursuits focused on maternity care, aging, dementia, blood donation, depression, weapons use and international human rights. Passion and commitment, combined with sound research skills, are the hallmarks of all scientific pursuits. The evidence indicates that sociology is one of the safest investments available to ensure social policy informed by evidence and sound research.

Polio support crucial as disease nearly beat Many Canadians are old enough to remember the horror of polio from our childhoods. In the 1950s and 60s, polio killed thousands of children and left countless others living in iron lungs or with lifelong paralysis. With the development of effective vaccines, we thought we had seen the end of this terrible disease. We were wrong. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently predicted a global polio emergency in Pakistan within three months. In 2011, 73 new cases were reported there, nearly equal to all the cases in the previous five years. Polio is now 99 per cent eradicated globally, but without immediate action, the number of children paralyzed each year is expected rise to 200,000 in a decade. Canada contributes $35 million annually towards global polio eradication, but our spending is set to decline to just

$5 million in 2014. Prime Minister Harper has been invited by the United Nations to co-convene a meeting on polio this week. It is crucial that he recommit to our earlier funding. Nathaniel Poole Victoria

Tot group fills a niche for those seeking unstructured play Parent and Tot Cafe offers chance for both parents and kids to kick back and relax Tim Collins News staff

It was an idea that came to Julita Traylen last spring when she was searching for a free play group in Oak Bay for her two-yearold daughter, Tess. She didn't have much luck in that quest. “There was a reading program at the library that was great, but really wasn't what I was looking for,” Traylen says. “And other programs all had a fee attached to them.” What she wanted was a place where toddlers and their parents could drop by and enjoy one another’s company in an informal and lightly structured program. “The kids really just needed a place to play and interact. And as for the parents – well I thought that other sleep-deprived parents like myself might want a place where we could enjoy a chat and a cup of coffee with other adults while the children played.” Undaunted by the seeming lack of a pro-

gram that fit her needs, Traylen cast about the neighbourhood and discovered that a perfect space for a play group existed in the Community Hall of the Oak Bay United Church (1355 Mitchell St.). She approached the church’s minister, Rev. Keith Howard, with the idea that the church might be used for a non-denominational program for pre-school children. He was immediately enthusiastic about the concept. “We’re very interested in families,” Howard says. “So this was a natural fit.” He adds that the church is always supportive of initiatives that speak to the needs of families. “Young families, and particularly young mothers, are often under a lot of stress and need to have the support of the community. “The church is a part of the community and if we can provide the space for a worthwhile program … why not do it?” In fact, the church provided not only the space but also gave Traylen’s program access to a supply of toys and equipment that they already had on hand for other programs. But it was still up to Traylen to bring the program to fruition. “I created a Facebook page and made up a lot of posters,” she says. “Tess and I did a lot of walking last spring as we put posters up all over the neighbourhood.”

Traylen had no idea if anyone would actually come to the program she had planned. “It was really a bit of an experiment on my part, but it turned out very well.” When the program started in April, a few parents and their children showed up. Over time, that number grew. “We had coffee and the kids just had a great time running around and playing,”

Traylen says. “Sometimes we’d do some directed play, but mostly we let them use their imagination. They have a great time.” The program operates every Monday between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Details and updates regarding the program are available at facebook.com/ oakbay.parent.and.tot.cafe. reporter@vicnews.com

Only a working smoke alarm can save your life! FIRE PREVENTION WEEK

OCTOBER 7-14 Smoke alarms save lives “Fall back” to smart home safety As most Canadians turn back the clocks on November 4, here are some timely smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) safety tips: • When you change your clocks, test your smoke arlam. • You have less than three minutes to escape a fire. So when smoke alarms sound, everyone must know what to do and where to go. Having and practising an escape plan is essential. • Install one smoke alarm on every storey and outside bedrooms. Install inside bedrooms if you sleep with doors closed. • Ensure all smoke alarms are fully powered. Never take out batteries or remove an alarm from ceiling due to a false alarm. • If your home has any fuelburning devices such as a gas furnace, gas water heater, gas appliances, or an attached garage or carport, install at least one CSA-approved carbon monoxide outside all sleeping areas. One per storey is recommended. • Replace smoke alarms ev-

ery 10 years, and CO alarms every 7-10 years (depending on manufacturer) whether battery operated or hardwired into your home’s electrical system. Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless. So without a CO alarm, humans cannot detect its presence. Despite the average home having several potential sources of the deadly gas, studies show that nearly 60 per cent of Canadians have not installed a CO alarm. In addition to being impossible to detect, CO also has another nefarious trait. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure mimic the flu, without the fever. It is routinely responsible for thousands of clinic and hospital visits each year, and is commonly misdiagnosed. Prolonged or extreme exposure causes nausea, dizziness, confusion, the loss of physical mobility, brain damage and ultimately, death. More home safety resources can be found on the www. safeathome.ca web site.

Analysis was undertaken on almost 50,000 fires that occurred in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario over a 5-year period involving 663 fatalities. The findings demonstrated that the death rate per 1,000 fires in the absence of a present, functioning smoke alarm was 74% greater than when a functioning smoke alarm was present.

Thanksgiving turkey fires cause for concern at 9-1-1 centre E -Comm’s fire dispatch team is warning families to be mindful of their turkey cooking during Thanksgiving weekend. “A turkey isn’t something you typically see on a list of household fire hazards, but we get 9-1-1 calls about ovens going up in flames all the time,” says Corey Kelso, E-Comm fire dispatcher. “The result can be devastating if you’re not careful every time you have something cooking for an extended period of time.”

E-Comm has received some odd calls to 9-1-1 before – including someone wanting to know how long to cook a turkey – but a turkey fire is no joke. In fact, it is a leading cause of spikes in 9-1-1 calls over the holidays. “A flame in your oven can start easily and escalate quickly,” says Kelso. “Oil drippings through a thin tinfoil turkey pan or bits of leftover food residue inside your oven are extremely flammable in a high temperature setting.”

Many fatal fires start at night Investigations into home fire deaths very often find that a smoke alarm did not sound. It may have been disconnected or not in working order. The batteries may have been dead, or someone may have taken them out. Smoke alone won’t necessarily wake you up. In fact, the fumes could put you into an even deeper sleep. Often, victims never wake up. Se-

niors will often need assistance from family members to put safety measures into place. As well, family members are in the best position to reinforce the precautions necessary to help their loved ones prevent or respond to a fire. Focus on these six priorities to help aging family members protect themselves against fire in the home.

Q INSTALL smoke alarms inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. Q Larger homes may need ADDITIONAL smoke alarms to provide enough protection. Q For the best protection, INTERCONNECT all smoke alarms so when one sounds they all sound. Q An IONIZATION smoke alarm is generally more responsive to flaming fires and a PHOTOELECTRIC smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, both types of alarms or combination ionization and photoelectric alarms (also known as dual sensor alarms) are recommended. Q Smoke alarms should be INSTALLED away from the kitchen to prevent false alarms. Generally, they should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a cooking appliance. Q REPLACE all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.

Celebrating Fire Prevention Week in Greater Victoria Firefighters around the region will be busy educating the public about fire safety during Fire Prevention Week. In Oak Bay, the Fire Department will be conducting the Challenge Trophy competition among area schools. On the morning of Oct. 10, firefighters will attend area schools to perform full evacuation and safety drills – the Black Press file school with the best time wins the trophy. Oak Bay Firefighter Kyle The firefighters will Beaumont prepares for also attend municipal rooftop drills. hall and all Oak Bay recreation centres during the week to conduct evacuation drills with patrons and employees to make sure everyone knows how to follow a fire escape plan. “Fire Prevention Week for us is the one time of year we can draw the public’s attention to one simple, important thing, that’s having a working smoke alarm that is tested regularly,” said Oak Bay Fire Department Captain Ken Gill. “If we could encourage every resident to take that small step, then every other message we have will dovetail into that. … It all hinges on early detection and warning, so people have the opportunity to escape.” Gill said it is a standard message, but one that is not always heeded. “It’s challenging, but it’s one step that would certainly go a long way to protecting property and saving lives,” he added. From Oct. 2 to 5, the Saanich Fire Department will partner with other departments to host a fire expo aimed at teaching 911 skills, fire extinguisher safety, and home evacuation, at the Central Saanich fire hall. The program, geared towards students in Grade 5, runs daily from 9 a.m. until noon. Firefighters will also take their fire trucks to schools across the Saanich and Greater Victoria School Districts, conducting fire drills throughout the week. From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Oct. 13, firefighters will be on hand with fire safety resources at the Home Depot at 3986 Shelbourne St. for Home Depot Fire Safety Days. “We’d like to encourage everyone to participate at the in-home level, not just at public schools,” said Saanich fire department Capt. Rich Pala. “Everyone should have a home escape plan. We’d like to see everyone sit down with their kids and educate them.” The Victoria Fire Department will begin the week with opening ceremonies at Victoria City Hall Oct. 9 at 8:50 a.m. The event will begin with a fire drill at city hall, a proclamation and the raising of the Fire Prevention Week flag. Firefighters will attend all area schools to make sure students are prepared to evacuate their classrooms. “Every year we have a specific theme and this year is ‘have two ways to get out,’” said Insp. Megan Sabell of the VicBlack Press file toria Fire Department. Firefighter training in “Everyone should have Nanaimo. two ways to get out of every room in their building, home, school or office.

Independent Camas Books thrives outside the mainstream Edward Hill News staff

If Camas Books adopted the corporate lingo of mainstream advertising, the store might be tagged “new and improved.” Or that might make its collective members collectively cringe. Victoria’s non-hierarchical hub of anarchist, anti-capitalist, anti-colonial and radical literature has relocated to a space half a block north from its former home at the corner of Quadra Street and Kings Road. Walls in the new space are splashed with grand, sweeping murals of nature – a humpback whale arches across the back wall, a cougar guards the cash register – while scattered boxes of books attest to the chaos of moving. A volunteer work party was expected to have the store in order and reopened by Wednesday. “I’m interested in discovering what the culture on this side of the street is like,” jokes Kim Croswell, a volunteer and member of the Camas Books collective, referring to their relocation to the north side of Kings Road. “We’re fortunate that we don’t have to leave the neighbourhood. We like

Camas Books volunteer and collective member Kim Croswell stands amid the store in the process of unpacking in its new location on Quadra Street. it here.” Camas Books has survived for five years on a business model that matches the philosophy of its book inventory. It’s a nonprofit society run by a collective, where 24 members come to consensus on decision making through discussion and debate. “We have a broad base of community support. It’s reflected in the size of the collec-

tive, and volunteers give their time, skills and expertise to keep it going,” said Allan Antliff, one of the founding members of Camas Books and a University of Victoria professor of art history. “The books we carry aren’t carried in any other book store in Victoria. We have a strong identity in the radical community, and a strong indigenous orientation. It all comes together to create a viable operation,” he says. Camas Books will fundraise to help pay for the move, but Croswell said in general, the store is financially self-sustaining through book sales and community events, such as art shows, book readings and film launches. Its volunteer base is dedicated and loyal, and more than enough to staff the store seven days per week. “We’re a mixture of teachers, high school and university students, writers, cab drivers, people who work two jobs and then come here and do shifts. It’s people from all walks of life,” says Croswell, who teaches distance learning. Camas Books takes its name from the camas plant, a traditional aboriginal food source. In keeping with its mandate of pro-

th Sandy’s 37 Anniversary Sale

moting indigenous rights, the store makes a point of describing its location on traditional Lekwungen (Songhees and Esquimalt First Nation) territory. “The mandate is to promote alternative knowledge and books. A huge element is the indigenous section and the decolonization section,” Croswell noted. Antliff, a Canada Research Chair and an expert in anarchist history, and others, started the bookstore by renting shelf space at Dark Horse Books in downtown Victoria, and eventually raised enough money to open a retail space in Quadra Village in 2007. Despite being a founding member, these days Antliff takes a back seat helping guide the collective. “I do a lot of grunt work. I mop the floor and clean up. I leave the leadership to others. There are very talented people in the collective,” Antliff says. “I’m interested in art and social change. For me, it’s a good fit.” Camas Books is hosting a reopening celebration on Oct. 12, 6:30 p.m., featuring CBC Radio host and poet laureate Janet Rogers, at 2620 Quadra St. editor@saanichnews.com

Artists face off in show Fragments and Masks is a two-person exhibition of photographs and paintings that explore the way people are presented by the artist’s image. The show of black and white photography by Barry Herring and interactive paintings by Richard Motchman opens Friday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m. at the Xchanges Gallery, 2333 Government St. These artists use different media but their figurative work is related in that they both focus only on portions of the body in their portraits. When people pose for a portrait they decide what part of themselves to expose and what to hide. The person performs for the artist. The artist then records the performance and manipulates it to produce an image that will be exposed to a future viewer. These images are a representation of reality and provide the viewer with clues to initiate a personal narrative and form a conception of the person. Herring uses traditional black and white darkroom techniques to create portrayals of a fragment of a person or he cuts fragments from portraits and recombines them. In this way, he examines how the eye, brain and memory construct an artificial image and not an exact or

petrified replication. A central question is what construct does the viewer form of the original subject from the fragment? Motchman creates portrait paintings using a narrow fragment of the naked person from scalp to pelvis. With each painting is a mask that the viewer interacts with, covering or uncovering the face. The positioning of the mask can further fragment the portrait. The choice of mask depicted is another part of the

collaboration between model and artist. The interaction of the viewer with the mask brings the viewer into an intimate relationship with the painting as object but also into an intimate relationship with the subject of the painting. The exhibition continues at Xchanges Gallery until Oct. 28. Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. llavin@vicnews.com

Saanich Coun. Leif Wergeland laughs as he recalls the time his good friend Bob Gillespie filled in for him at the Capital Regional District board table. Gillespie, known widely for his outspoken nature as a Saanich councillor, was a meeting standout that day and his passionate statements and body language were then detailed in news coverage of the meeting. Only the actions weren’t attributed to Gillespie, rather accidentally to Wergeland, whose name tag sat before the councillor in his regular seat among CRD directors. Gillespie immediately called out Wergeland for benefitting from his charisma. It was a news gaffe the two delighted in and it still brings a smile to Wergeland’s face in the week following Gillespie’s death on Sept. 25. He was 82. “When Bob spoke, he spoke with passion,” Wergeland said. “He had an ability through his personality to work with people of all political stripes and he was respected for that. Even though they didn’t necessarily agree, he was able to work with them.” Gillespie lived his entire life in Saanich, serving on council from 1990 until 2008.

Bob Gillespie Wergeland first met Gillespie through their time together on council and continued to meet near weekly ever since. “Over the years we drank a lot of coffee at Tim Hortons and tried to solve some of the world’s problems,” he said. “What was neat about him was that he was a straight forward uncomplicated person and he’d give his opinion on how how he felt whether he was in the majority or the minority.” Gillespie was known in many capacities, as the owner of Gillespie Electric, an outspoken councillor and an advocate for local food production. He was instrumental in bringing in the wholesale water rate for farmers, believing there was no point to protecting farmlands if farmers

couldn’t afford to farm them. “He’ll be fondly remembered by the Saanich community,” said Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard. “He had his own brand of politics and policies. He wasn’t afraid to stand by himself sometimes, but he spoke from the heart and always tried to keep a sense of humour.” Saanich South MLA Lana Popham knew Gillespie best for his work in the agricultural community. She first met him during her days as a farmer and a commissioner of the Peninsula Agricultural Commission, on which Gillespie was the representative from Saanich council. “We really hit it off because he really wanted to see younger people getting into farming,” Popham said. “He was always very supportive and he inspired me because he never seemed to give up. “Even though I’m 43 years old, he would always say, ‘You’re doing a good job, kid.’” Gillespie is survived by his son Doug, daughter Susan Thackeray, six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. A public celebration of Gillespie’s life is planned for 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, at the Church of the Nazarene, 4277 Quadra St. All are welcome. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Sun streams through skylights warming an open hand as sticky black ink rolls across the palm. Phyllis Campanello controls the application, smoothing black over each finger and the thumb before carefully pressing the hand onto plain white paper then pulling it away. The whorls and loops of each fingertip appear clearly on the page. Campanello starts on the left hand as the scent of fresh coffee fills the room and a group of ladies gather around a nearby table. In the hub of activity at Monterey Recreation Centre, Campanello has a small seating area tucked into the corner near the Fern Café. This is where the Oak Bay woman practises her “system based on science” of modified palmistry. The handprints are just the first step; it’s a document like a medical file, she says. “Then they have a record of where they were at that moment in time,” she explains. Campanello, a certified hand analyst and astrologer, offered her first mainstream hand analysis presentation here last month. The response stunned her and Monterey co-ordinator Lesley Cobus. “I shouldn’t be (surprised). … Like anything, the person sells their business and Phyllis is extraordinary. She’s compelling,” Cobus says. “She is just a real person who’s got these skills. She builds trust and rapport with people. I think they feel safe with her, because she’s not flaky.” Hand analysis wasn’t even on the periphery of Cobus’ mind for the program rotation at Monterey, but she was quickly sold on the idea. “I think everyone’s curious. She’s a professional and people trust her. I like that in any instructor.” Campanello seats her client, offers a drink of water, then delves into the hands, touching, pointing, even drawing on areas to which she wants to bring attention. She maps her points on paper, assigning spiritual homework. Her enthusiasm highlights her enjoyment of the job. “I wanted something that was in my community,” Campanello says. “The presentation was to test the water and it drew people from 20to 80-year-olds and even men.” Despite competing with the first Oak Bay street market and a sunny day, Campanello’s presentation attracted more than 50 people, almost twice the number expected.

Phyllis Campanello provides hand analysis for a client at Monterey rec centre in Oak Bay. “I had no idea what kind of response we would have because it’s such a conservative community (in Oak Bay),” says Campanello, who retired here six years ago from San Francisco. “Victoria is very progressive, which is why my husband and I chose to move here.” Cobus attributes the crowd to open minds, despite Oak Bay’s reputation as a conservative area. “Vancouver Island in general is home to a lot of artistic, creative people, and people with that inclination, their mind is open,” Cobus says. “She sparks that curiosity in people and they want to come and learn more. Maybe there’s insight to be gained from exploring this kind of thing.” A free hand analysis talk happens Tuesday, Oct. 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Garry Room at Monterey.

Camosun to build $30M trades centre Edward Hill News staff

After 40 years of hard use, Camosun College’s trades facilities will get a needed facelift and two new buildings thanks to a $29.2 million provincial government grant. Advanced Education Minister John Yap announced the funding recently in the welding hall at Camosun’s Interurban campus. Yap and fellow B.C. Liberal cabinet minister Ida Chong then had a quick, hands-on welding lesson. “Students need to get the latest, updated, skills and training in demand today and in demand tomorrow,” Yap told a few hundred assembled students and staff. “Camosun is the largest trades training facility on Vancouver Island. We want to make sure the facilities that are needed here are in southern Vancouver Island.” Seaspan’s $8-billion federal shipbuilding contract is playing a role in the push to develop more skilled workers in marine and metal trades, but the province also faces a looming skilled labour shortage. “A highly trained workforce is the backbone of our economy,” said Camosun College president Kathryn Laurin. “We need to increase the number of people in college to get folks the right skill sets and into the workforce.”

Edward Hill/News staff

Student Jenny Albrecht, left, gives Advanced Education Minister John Yap and Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Ida Chong a quick lesson in welding at Camosun College’s Interurban campus last month. Overall, the project will give Camosun Interurban 200,000 square feet of trades training space. A new 45,000 square foot building will house marine and metal trades, and a 35,000 square foot building will house heavy-duty and automotive mechanical trades. Existing buildings, built in the 1960s, will be retrofitted and refurbished. The added space will allow about 370 more full-time trades students per year, adding to the 2,200 in place now, studying 20 different fields. Tom Roemer, Camosun vice-president of

strategic development, said the college is fortunate to have land available – the new trades centre will go in place of Tillicum Lodge, a condemned building that has sat unused for decades. Camosun will chip in $800,000 to the project and will issue tenders for design immediately. Roemer expects the buildings to open in late 2015, which should dovetail with the ramp-up of federal shipbuilding. He said marine and aerospace companies like Seaspan and Viking Air need people now. Malcolm Barker, vice-president of Seas-

pan Victoria Shipyards, said the shipyard has two major long-term contracts to overhaul navy submarines and frigates, even before taking on federal fleet replacement. The shipyards employ 116 apprentices from Camosun, and have 1,000 workers on job. “This recognizes that shipbuilding is important in B.C.," Barker said, referring to the new trades training facilities. "The province is saying the industry has a future. It’s a telling point for us, and we need an educated workforce.” editor@saanichnews.com

Elites target records Too much

too soon for Victoria

Cash prizes entice faster runners to marathon Travis Paterson News staff

With apologies to the old adage, but it’s records, not rules, which are meant to be broken. Three of the Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon’s bigger records were reset last year, one of them 22 years old. And this Sunday there’s no reason those three records, plus more, can’t be broken once more in the marathon’s 33rd year. “There’s a very good chance the men’s and women’s marathon records could fall once again,” said Jonathan Foweraker, marathon’s elite athlete coordinator. The marathon’s board of directors made a bold choice this year by loosening the regulations for the cash bonus to course record-breakers. Previously, the course record bonus of $5,000 was reserved to Canadian citizens, meaning last year’s winner, Thomas Omwenga, who earned $3,000 for the win, was unable to collect the added $5,000 course bonus. That changes this year as the men’s and women’s marathon bonuses, including $1,000 for the half-marathon, are extended to permanent residents and refugees who have been domiciled in Canada for at least a year. Omwenga returns after breaking Steve Osadiuk’s 2006 time of two hours, 16 minutes and 49 seconds last year with a time of 2:14:33. “Omwenga has a better personal-best than that, and we must note that in 2011 he ran a marathon in Montreal the week before. This time he’s rested up,” Foweraker said. The Canadian-based Kenyan has won two marathons already this year, in Manitoba and Quebec, and his last race was Niagara’s Run for Grapes half-marathon, which he won on Sept. 23. The competition is tight in the men’s elite pack with 2010-winner Philip Samoei, who came second last year at 2:25:41 and, Cache Creek’s Ryan Day, who was third last year at 2:26:42 also returning. Elites keying in on the women’s marathon are Gillian Clayton, an Ironman triathlete who has a personal best of 2:54 from 2011, Hallie Jansen, the 2004-winner, who ran 2:45 in 2011, 2010-winner Catrin Jones, who ran 2:48 last year and Nadyia Fry, third in 2011 with 2:55. Eyeing up first in the women’s half-marathon is another Canadian-based Kenyan, Lucy Njeri, who smashed the marathon record of with a time of 2:37:56 in 2011. Cracking the women’s half-marathon record might be beyond Njeri, however, as Natasha Wodak set the bar high with her course record of 1:15:27 last year. Other notables for Sunday: the masterful movement of Jim Finlayson. Now 40, the local runner joins the masters ranks. For the fourth year in a row the Victoria Marathon will act as the B.C. Championships. The advent of an expanded Elite B category means free entry to more runners, particularly women, from the local scene, rather than just international runners. sports@vicnews.com

SPORTS NEWS IN BRIEF Jamie Benn goes to German elite league Peninsula minor hockey product Jamie Benn has signed on to play with the Hamburg Freezers of Germany’s premier hockey league, the Deutsche Eishockey Liga.

Benn’s contract enables him to return to the Dallas Stars, where he was an NHL all-star last season, if the NHL lockout ends during the German hockey season. Stars beat writer Mike Heika came across the signing on Tuesday through the Freezers’ website. Benn makes his debut today (Oct. 5). Also on the Hamburg Freezers is exNHLer Matt Pettinger of Victoria, who last played for the Vancouver Canucks in 2010.

Japanese visit Tide comes for 40th Royal Athletic Park will host a 40th anniversary on Saturday when the Victoria’s Ebb Tide, the over-40 rugby club, returns to the pitch where it made its debut in 1972. Two visiting Japanese teams, the Osaka Gentlemen and Tenri Old Bears will each play an over-55 game against an Ebb Tide squad that will change throughout the day,

followed by an over-40 game. “Spectators shouldn’t expect sparkling rugby, that’s left for the young, although the over-40 game may have flashes of brilliance,” said Ebb Tide member Mark Bryant. The event starts Saturday at 1 p.m. with the over-55 games beginning at 1:30 p.m. and the over-40 match at 3 p.m., followed by a traditional rugby reception and dinner at Four Points Sheraton at 6 p.m.

Greater Victoria has been left out of the running in the contest to be the new home of Ironman Canada. Several factors came into play against bringing the world-class long distance triathlon to Elk Lake but the biggest was getting 10 municipalities on board in time for the deadline of an Oct. 13 annoucment. “We were disappointed,” said Hugh MacDonald of SportHost Victoria. He submitted the proposal to the World Triathlon Corporation by Sept. 24, which owns the Ironman licences, on behalf of Greater Victoria. The WTC released a shortlist on Monday of Whistler, Vernon and Huntsville, Ont., as the final three cities. “While Victoria as a venue was ranked at the top, (WTC) didn’t have the confidence that we could get the permits and required support from 10 municipalities within five to 10 days,” MacDonald said. “We weren’t surprised, it’s a lot of hoops to go through in our community to get events.” The WTC told MacDonald the chances of bringing Ironman Canada to Victoria were much better if the race could wait until 2014. But with competitors chomping at the bit to sign up, WTC is moving fast to find a new 2013 home for the race that lived in Penticton from 1982 to 2012. “There will be some discussion about the result,” MacDonald said. “We were being encouraged by different groups, we were looking at August but were encouraging WTC to look earlier or later.” In one way, MacDonald can wipe his brow over the loss of stress. There was no shortage of support from the triathlon and non-triathlon community to bring Ironman here. But there was legitimate concern, said MacDonald, of just when to fit the massive migration of triathletes and their supporters into the summer event calendar. “2013 is an exceptionally busy year, some events haven’t been officially awarded yet.” The World Youth Climbing Championships are coming Aug. 10 to 18, bringing as many as 2,000 people from 45 countries for the event hosted at Stelly’s secondary. The Subaru Western Triathlon Series also runs the Sookie International half-Ironman, usually the third Saturday in August. Soon to be confirmed is the Canadian Dragon Boat Championships at Elk Lake, which MacDonald is committed to bringing here, for the weekend of Aug. 24 to 26. Victoria already has the International Dragon Boat festival, with 70 teams on the Inner Harbour, Aug. 10 to 12. And though it’s not as major a factor, the Canadian Amateur Golf Championships at Royal Colwood Golf course are Aug. 11 to 15. sports@vicnews.com

A cold goodbye to gold medal coach Rowers upset with Rowing Canada coach’s dismissal Travis Paterson News staff

Mike Spracklen had his share of detractors, but he didn’t think it was enough to tip him out of the boat. Earlier this week Rowing Canada made a bold decision to fire the decorated coach. Off-and-on since 1990, Spracklen guided Canadians to multiple Olympic and World Championship gold medals, helping Silken Laumman to fame in the 1990s and, in recent years, the crews of the men’s heavyweight eight and pairs to the Olympic podium. The national program is restructuring, which includes hiring a new performance director for the heavyweight men’s program, based at Elk Lake, to be announced later. “Mike has left a significant legacy and we respect and celebrate his many achievements,” said Peter Cookson, the high performance director. “Two medals (in London) does not meet our expectations – we are driven to improve on this.” “Certainly I was surprised,” Spracklen said from his Sidney home on Tuesday. “I still have something to offer, providing my health stays good then I’ll continue coaching. I want to go and help people who want my help, and I’ll continue to do what I can for them. “If they don’t want my help, I don’t want to be with them.” Just as several current rowers stepped forward to defend Spracklen on Tuesday, he’s also been the target of controversy since about 2010, mainly from men’s pair of Dave Calder and Scott Frandsen, who’ve openly criticizing his style of coaching. The CBC published a letter on Tuesday from Frandsen in support of Spracklen’s removal, but he and Calder passed up a request for comment to the News. From the CBC letter, Frandsen voiced harsh words, accusing Spracklen of creating an inner circle of rowers, with an “us against them” mentality against the rest of the rowing team, and for employing an unfair selection process for the international boat crews. But current rower and 2012 Olympian Lindsay Jennerich – who fought and won against Rowing Canada for the right as the only women’s boat to train at Elk Lake under Spracklen – and Kevin Light, a member of the 2008 Olympic gold-medal heavyweight eight, are among

Replica temple open for public tours Edward Hill News staff

Volunteers in Saanich have erected a scale replica of a 3,000 year old Hebrew Temple to act as a museum of Old Testament stories. Sponsored by the Seventh Day Adventist Church, the travelling Messiah's Mansion Tabernacle is open for tours in a field at Chatterton Way and Quadra Street. Clayton Leinneweber, director of Messiah’s Mansion, from Harrah, Okla., said the event is a visual avenue to explain symbolism and icons of the Old Testament, and the connection of the icons to the life and death of Jesus Christ. The walled sanctuary is about 150 by 75 feet, and the temple is 45 by 15 feet, both roughly the same dimensions, according to the Old Testament, as a wilderness temple built near Mt. Sinai, after the Jewish people followed Moses out of Egypt. “This is the same size as in Moses’ day. The sanctuary is made to scale,” Leinneweber

Don Denton/News staff

Clayton Leinneweber with Oklahoma-based Messiah's Mansion, stands with a replica of the Ark of the Covenant. said. “We show people how (priests) used the services ... the sanctuary is like a big story.” Three Messiah's Mansions are touring North America, and this particular model was built in Abbotsford for use primarily

in Canada to avoid cross-border hassles. The stop in Saanich is the third this year for the Canadian operation, and its first time in Greater Victoria. The sanctuary is steeped in biblical symbolism of slaying of lambs, the altar of sacrifice, breaking bread and the light of candles, and more literal objects, such as the Ark of the Covenant and the Ten Commandment tablets. “A lot of it is symbolic. The lamb is a symbol of Jesus, bread represents the body of Christ and bread is a symbol for food. Smoke that rises (from incense) represents the prayers of the saints,” said Leinneweber, a school teacher in Oklahoma when he’s not setting up replica Hebrew sanctuaries. About 30 volunteers from the local church spent three days assembling the temple. The free tours are open to anyone. They run daily from 1 to 7 p.m. through Oct. 8 at 4401 Chatterton Way. Tours start every 15 minutes and last 75 minutes. See vicsda.ca/ark. editor@saanichnews.com

Wanted Coquitlam man nabbed in routine traffic stop

IN BRIEF

Esquimalt ‘age-friendly’ A provincial program has awarded Esquimalt $1,000 as one of nine municipalities deemed an “agefriendly” community. Recent age-friendly improvements that helped earn the grant include the outdoor Esquimalt Active Park and accessibility improvements to recreation facilities. “We are pleased to be recognized in this way and will continue in our efforts to make Esquimalt an accessible and healthy community for residents of all ages,” Mayor Barbara Desjardins said in a statement. The Age-Friendly B.C. program issues grants to municipalities to create a legacy project or celebration.

Victoria police are trumpeting an intelligence-led deployment technique after it led to the arrest of a man wanted for assault and three counts of breach. A K9 team officer was conducting traffic stops Tuesday on Burnside

Road as part of VicPD’s hot spot policing model, where officers are deployed to identified problem areas. A driver was pulled over for suspicious behaviour around 1:30 a.m., but quickly fled after being

identified. Police traced the BMW sedan to the Red Lion Inn at 3366 Douglas St. and arrested the man in his hotel room. The driver, a 32-year-old Coquitlam man, faces charges of dangerous driving, flight from

police, obstruction and breach of recognizance in addition to his previous charges. He is being held while VicPD liaise with Coquitlam RCMP to facilitate his return. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Couple enjoyed hot rods as daily drivers for decades

Anne and Dave Boyce with the ‘hers and his’ hot rods they have used as daily transportation for years.

Dave Boyce got his first car at age 13. His neighbour in Richmond said he could have the 1932 Chevrolet coupe if he could make it run. Dave worked all summer rebuilding the ALYN EDWARDS engine and finally got it CLASSIC going. RIDES When his excavating contractor father caught Dave driving the car, he dug a hole and buried the car while his son was at school. Undaunted, young Dave got a job at the local service station at No. 5 Road and Westminster Highway and bought a 1939 Pontiac convertible. His first hot rod was a 1931 Ford Model A coupe acquired in 1952. He chopped the top and channeled the body over the frame. He repowered the car with a hopped up Ford V8 flathead engine and hit the road. He’s been driving a hot rod as his daily

transportation ever since. Dave Boyce has owned 19 hot rods, including that first Ford Model A coupe. Years after selling the car, he found a similar car dumped in a field near Bellingham, Wa. He bought the car and went to work restoring it into a hot rod just like the one he’d owned years before. The 1926 Ford Model T Ford is towed behind a motor After completing the car, he went to register it in B.C. and the home when Dave and Anne Boyce head south for the winter. clerk thought he was playing a joke. The serial number showed the car was still registered to Dave and modern Chevrolet V8 power.

truck built from the parts of several trucks. His shop was always filled with hot rods owned by other people he was helping and he’d fix his fleet of 16 trucks in the driveway. He recalls being called to pick up a car for an elderly lady. It was a 1966 Rambler that had hardly been driven. “The car was just like the day it came out of the showroom so I gave it to my sister and she drove it for 10 years,” he says. Among the derelict cars he towed in over the years was a highly customized 1956 Chevrolet two-door. It had been left to rot in a Richmond backyard so Dave Boyce impounded it in his yard where it

remained for years. He was attending a swap meet on one of his snowbird trips to Arizona when he started talking to a local man who said he had given his customized Chevy to his son who eventually abandoned it in Vancouver. When Dave told him about the custom car stored in his yard, the man arranged to fly up to Vancouver, rediscovered the car he had purchased new and had radically customized and took it home to restore. Dave Boyce gave him the car without any charges. Not to be left out of hot rodding, Anne Boyce got her license later on in her life and her only car has been her

pink 1927 Ford Model T roadster pickup. The modified ‘Pink Lady’ hot rod is powered by a Chevrolet V6 engine and she drives it year-round – rain or shine. Dave Boyce is still buying cars, including a 1932 Chevrolet coupe just like that first car given to him 60 years ago. And a 1935 Ford coupe he plans to build into a replica of the stock car he raced at Burnaby’s Digney Speedway in the mid 1950s. “At one time, Dave had 22 hot rod bodies and a yard full of parts,” says long-time friend Doug Harder. “He would give away parts to guys building hot rods and help everyone.” Dave Boyce was honoured by the Greater Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society at its fall induction ceremony, receiving the Sandy Lovelace Award given to those who have made an outstanding contribution

The puck drops on Hyundai Hockey Helpers Month Hyundai offers chance to win a 2013 Elantra GT

The contest is merely one initiative contributing to Hyundai Hockey Helpers Month in Canada. Participating dealers across the country are actively conducting fundraising programs to help more kids get in the game.

METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Additionally, Hyundai Hockey Helpers ambassadors and vehicles will travel to more than 90 hockey arenas from coast-to-coast to collect donations, reach families, and get them involved at the grassroots level.

On the heels of a successful launch of their community investment program, Hyundai Hockey Helpers, Hyundai Auto Canada is launching Hyundai Hockey Helpers Month. The month-long campaign is dedicated to raising awareness and donations for under-resourced youth to get in the game of hockey. Until Oct. 31, the company is also hosting a contest open to all Canadians for a chance to win a brand new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT. Hyundai Hockey Helpers is a new initiative designed to reinvest in communities across the country and improve the lives of deserving children by helping at least 1,000 under-resourced Canadian youth play hockey. In partnership with KidSport Canada, a not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance to kids ages 18 and younger, the program provides grants for registration fees and equipment costs in order to lower the financial barriers that prevent youth from participating in organized sports.

The SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive all-electric supercar is the most powerful ever built by Mercedes-AMG.

Electrifying – the world’s most powerful electric super sport METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

E N D O F S U M M E R SALE!

With the new SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive, Mercedes-AMG is entering a new era. The most powerful AMG high-performance vehicle of all time has four electric motors producing a total output of 740 hp and a maximum torque of 1000 Nm (737 lb/ft). As a result, the gullwing model has become the world’s fastest electrically powered series production vehicle: the SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. A new dimension of driving performance – a convincing synonym for the AMG brand promise are the outstanding driving dynamics which come courtesy of AMG Torque Dynamics as well as torque distribution to individual wheels, which is made possible by means of wheel-selective all-wheel drive. The SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive is aimed at technologyminded super sports car fans who are open to new ideas and enthusiastic about ambitious high-tech solutions for the future of motoring. The spontaneous build-up of torque and the forceful power delivery without any interruption of tractive power are combined with completely vibration-free engine running characteristics. The four compact permanent-magnet synchronous electric motors, each weighing 45 kg, achieve a maximum individual speed of 13,000 rpm and in each case drive the four wheels selectively via an axially arranged transmission design. This enables the unique distribution of torque to individual wheels, which would normally only be possible with wheel hub motors which have the disadvantage of generating considerable unsprung masses.
