Royal Roads staff spread word on labour dispute Kyle Wells News staff

Flags were waving and pamphlets were handed out, but it wasn’t a strike, as Royal Roads University (RRU) Canadian Union of Public Employees members gathered last Thursday to spread information about their bargaining woes. Members of CUPE Local 3886 formed two picket lines during their lunch hour at the

university to distribute information about the union’s current bargaining concerns. Handing out decals, information pamphlets and small first aid kits reading “No more Band-Aid solutions. Budget cuts hurt us all,” the members spoke to passing students and staff to raise awareness of the situation. The move comes in support of provincewide job action by CUPE members in the university sector, including members at the University of Victoria who have been

involved in job action since Sept. 5. Members at Simon Fraser University, the University of Northern B.C., Thompson Rivers University and the University of British Columbia also served notice to the Labour Relations Board and were expected to picket last Thursday. Local 3886 president Paul Allison said the union’s primary concerns are the government cutting funds for education and the union’s difficulty in negotiating a wage

increase and increased job security. “That’s what we’re asking for, fair wages,” Allison said. Although the union will not give specific numbers, it says members are seeking a wage increase to reflect the increase in the cost of living, along with increased job security.

NOTICE Omnibus Amendment to Section 3.12 of Langford Zoning Bylaw No. 300 (keeping animals for domestic purposes)

Courtesy Metchosin Fire Department

Firefighters tend to an unusual simulated crash as personnel from 17 departments across B.C. participate in an auto extrication training session in Metchosin.

Studying ‘golden hour’

T

earing and peeling steel is part of the learning experience for firefighters. The Metchosin fire department hosted a vehicle extrication training expo, Sept. 22 drawing in 17 fire departments from Greater Victoria and across the province. Organized by the B.C. Extrication Society, firefighters learned new techniques and practised old ones using manual and hydraulic tools during the event. “It’s a great Charla Huber o p p o r t u n i t y Reporting for firefighters. You get hands-on and the vehicles are set up like actual car crashes,” said Metchosin fire Chief Stephanie Dunlop. “On the road when there is an actual crash is not the time be learning. You need learn the tools before someone's life is at risk.” At the event 25 cars, two

buses and a limo were sent through the ringer. “We had eight crashes going on at one time,” Dunlop said. Of the vehicles was a 1982 Volvo belonging to Metchosin Coun. Bob Gramigna. “The fire department said that Volvos are very difficult to cut,” said Graminga who was inside the car playing the role of crash victim when firefighters cut into it. As the crew worked on the car, a medic talked to Graminga. After 22 minutes of work with the steel-ripping Jaws of Life, Gramigna was removed from the car and moved to a back board. Firefighters from Beaver Creek worked on the car. “It showed my the value of the departments,” Gramigna said. “It was seamless, just amazing. I hope no one ever gets into an accident, but if you do believe me, you are in good hands. This is one of the highlights of my council career.” Many of the simulated crashes were designed to prepare firefighters for the worst. Some of the crashes included two cars on top of each other

and another had an upside down vehicle with a log skewered through. “We wanted to make what would be one of those ‘oh my God’ scenes,” Dunlop said. With several fire departments working together at the session, Dunlop said it helps build camaraderie among the firefighters and prepares them for mutual aid calls. Colwood firefighter, Lieut. Greg McClelland was one of the instructors and said events such as this allow the firefighters to work in the “golden hour.” He said the first hour after a crash is crucial and the goal is to get the patient out of the car within 20 minutes so they can get medical attention as quickly as possible. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Fireworks and horses Metchosin finds middle ground for Halloween celebrations Charla Huber News staff

Loud bangs can be startling to horses, but Halloween fireworks will continue in Metchosin. After meeting with several concerned horse owners, Metchosin fire chief Stephanie Dunlop made a few changes to the Halloween celebrations at the fire hall. After her meetings with the horse owners, Dunlop agreed to run the fire siren for about one minute prior to the fireworks as a warning to horse owners.

“The horses are used to the siren,” Dunlop said. Several horse owners have said in the past that specific fireworks cause the horses more grief. The department hopes to work around that by comparing the owner’s descriptions and the firework catalogue descriptions when placing orders. The department will also be using no-report fireworks again. The fireworks have a little less of a “bang” than standard fireworks. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Election limits rejected again Tom Fletcher

“We sent this case to the B.C. Court of Appeal for advice, and we are going to accept that advice.”

Black Press

The B.C. Court of Appeal has rejected a second attempt by the B.C. Liberal government to restrict third-party election advertising before the next provincial election. In a ruling released Thursday, the three-judge panel unanimously concluded that extending restrictions for 40 days before the formal 28-day election campaign is still an undue infringement on freedom of expression. An earlier restriction, extending 60 days before the 2009 election campaign, was struck down after a group of public sector unions challenged it in court. Attorney General Shirley Bond said the government will not appeal the latest ruling or attempt new restrictions in advance of the May 14, 2013 vote. Bond said the latest legislation met some of the court's tests of fairness, but the gov-

COMMUNITY NEWS

– Shirley Bond ernment was not able to show that third-party advertising had unduly influenced voters. She said the U.S. election system shows what can happen when unlimited spending by wealthy interest groups dominates elections. “I think the court has provided us with a very thorough analysis and clear reasons, and have concluded that any restrictions to the advertising in the pre-election period is unconstitutional,” Bond said. “We sent this case to the B.C. Court of Appeal for advice, and we are going to accept that advice.” Former attorney general Wally Oppal made the original amendments to the B.C. Elections Act in 2008, saying they were needed to prevent election debates from being “hijacked by third parties.”

The amendments limited political parties to spending $2.2 million in the 60 days before the official 28-day election campaign, and groups such as unions and business groups can spend only $150,000 during that time. Oppal, his successors Mike de Jong and Bond have all argued that more restrictions are needed since B.C. went to scheduled elections every four years, which allow interest groups to time their advertising to avoid the caps imposed during a formal 28-day campaign. The B.C. Teachers' Federation, the B.C. Nurses' Union, the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators originally challenged the spending restrictions in court. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

No burning in Langford The City of Langford cancelled October backyard burning due to dry conditions. “Given the unseasonably dry fall, coupled with the lack of rain in August, our community remains at an ‘ extreme fire risk’ category,” reads a press release from the city. The current ban on all open burning, including campfires, is extended tentatively until Friday, Nov. 2, corresponding with the city’s next scheduled burn weekend.

Wide net for beef recall Beef recalls due to potential e.coli contamination linked to the XL Foods meat processing plant has been expanded to included a broad number of grocery stores and products in Greater Victoria. Thrifty Foods, Safeway, Costco, Real Canadian Superstore, Save-onFoods, Wal-Mart and Country Grocer have recalled various beef items with a range of best-before dates. The recall potentially impacts dozens of beef products sold in late August, September and October. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency found a positive e.coli sample in the XL Foods plant in Brooks, Alta., on Sept. 4 and found two more on Sept. 12. The CFIA started issuing health warnings and ever-increas-

ing beef recalls a few days later. The plant was shut down Sept. 27. Thrifty Foods, which has the most outlets in the Capital Region of local stores affected, issued a statement noting that while it doesn’t often purchase beef from XL Foods, it bought “small amounts of whole beef cuts� during the period in question. Thrifty stores have since removed all affected products from its shelves. See www.inspection.gc.ca, and click Recalled Products under “CFIA investigation into XL Foods� to see the list of affected stores, the potentially tainted beef items and best before dates or product codes. editor@saanichnews.com

Victoria offers Beacon survey

Kyle Wells/News staff

CUPE Local 3886 member Peter Bosma hands out promotional materials to students and staff at an informational picket at Royal Roads University last Thursday.

Picket to raise awareness Continued from Page A1

The union has been without a collective agreement since 2010 due to prolonged negotiations. CUPE workers at RRU voted 96 per cent in favour of a strike should bargaining not move forward. Talks were set to continue yesterday (Oct. 9). The union must give 72-hour notice before any strike. “We’re hopeful that we’re going to be able to resolve things at the table, rather than at the picket line,” Allison said. “We’re almost there. I’m hoping that in the next couple of weeks we can sit down and just hash it out, because nobody wants to see any strike action.”

Allison said the province’s recent agreement with the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union gives CUPE hope an agreement can be reached. The 62 members of the union include custodial staff, gardeners, housekeepers, production workers, maintenance and other works at RRU. Allison said the union’s slogan for its action is “This university works because we do.” “We do our part and we just want fair wages in response to that,” Allison said. Members of the Royal Road Faculty Association were also at the information session to show support for CUPE. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Visitors to Beacon Hill Park have had a few months to experience the new traffic patterns, including some road closures and new singledirection roadways introduced mostly through signage, lane painting and bollards. Now the city is looking for public feedback. If the response is mainly positive, the city will make the changes permanent by introducing curbing, new green space and multi-use trails.

OUR VIEW

Who’s the lame leader here? With Christy Clark trying not to appear as a lame-duck premier, NDP leader Adrian Dix has been doing his best not to put his foot in his mouth in the runup to the 2013 election. It’s interesting to compare and contrast Dix’s situation with that of Victoria-Beacon Hill MLA Carole James, his predecessor as leader. James took the reins of the B.C. NDP in 2003, when people were getting wise to the Gordon Campbell Liberals’ strategy of gutting the public service to balance the budget. James pledged to build a broader base of support for her party, which was still feeling the sting of being annihilated by the Liberals in the 2001 provincial election. With anti-Liberal sentiment growing, the strategy seemed to work. In 2005 the NDP went from two seats to 33 and people began to talk of the once-vanquished party forming government in 2009. But James, doing her best to bridge the gap between big labour and big business, couldn’t get the party over the political hump. As such, she was ganged up on in caucus and unceremoniously given the boot in late 2010. Dix, the longtime party strategist and premier-in-waiting by most accounts, wants to please enough voters to gain a majority in the legislature. But he runs the risk of pleasing no one through giving little detail about his party’s stance on such key issues as oil pipelines, labour contracts and welfare rates. He’s politically fortunate that the popularity of Clark and the B.C. Liberals’ is low – even lower than when James was NDP leader. Dix hasn’t been completely silent on policy, however. During a speech to a business group last month in Vancouver, he showed nerve by pledging to raise corporate taxes if his party forms the next B.C. government. That sounds like the NDP of old, the party line James from which was so keen to distance herself and the party, in trying to appeal to more voters. We hope for more such policy pronouncements from Dix in the very near future. Waiting to lay out his party’s platform, so as not to alienate voters, makes him just as lame as Clark appears to be now.

restricted to journeymen or registered apprentices of that trade. “What it does is impose union jurisdiction on the training system of the entire construction industry,” Hochstein said. “So multi-skilling, multi-tasking, organizing the work in the most efficient way is blown out of the water, and it’s stuck in the old craft system of training.” The marketplace has spoken on that restrictive system, he said, and unionized construction is down to about five per cent of the market, based on payroll. Hochstein said the NDP talks a great game about getting more young people into trades. But when unions have the upper hand, they will always favour seniority. A quota of two apprentices per journeyman means another one can’t be hired. Dix agreed with me that the public school system has overemphasized university, to the detriment of not just industrial trades but lab techs, chefs and other skilled workers that are in short supply. As B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair recently noted, tradesmen themselves often don’t encourage their kids, because they’ve been told all their lives that they are “tool monkeys” in a dead-end job. And would NDP student grants be targeted to need? Dix’s answer was a definite maybe. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Higher ridership key to easing money woes Re: Transit wants your thoughts on fare changes (News, Oct. 3) No, no and no. This is a typical accountant’s response to a balanced budget. If there are not enough funds, raise the price, or let people go. If this were done, it would backfire, as the public are already paying enough for a ride. Keep the price the same. Want to balance the budget? Get more riders. An increase in fares will reduce ridership, as the public could drive and park cheaper. The general feeling is that it is close now, and convenient to not have a car downtown. Compare the fare for two people of $5 one way or $10 round trip to the cost of driving: a car will only use $2 to $3 worth of gas, and a $2 parkade fee. And depending on the time and day, the parking is free. Don’t raise fares, instead raise ridership. Look at the major cities and notice they are all going to rapid transit or express busing. A major component of the Victoria travelling public comes out of the West Shore. Making “Park & Go” areas and starting the train running again as a commuter makes a lot of sense and a lot of money for transit. Making drivers more customer aware would also help. I have seen numerous times where buses have pulled away leaving people running behind them. That is not saying all drivers, as I have also seen some good ones who do wait. But they are few. I would say don’t slash and burn, build and expand. Get the ridership up and the budget will get balanced. Robert Jones Langford

Readers respond: deer, dogs and history Dodging dog poop drives reader response I am tired of dodging dog poop on every walk and for the fourth time I stepped in it ( that is so gross). I think if people are too lazy to pick up after their dogs they should not own one. We have faithfully picked up after our own dog so that places people walk are clean and enjoyable for everyone. What is wrong with the rest of you dog owners, are you just too lazy? Is walking your dog a way to keep the dog poop out of your yards so you don’t have to clean your yards? Stop being lazy.

and take a shot at the pigeons and seagulls. Imagine – flying free in the air, dropping surprises everywhere. What strikes me as a bigger irritant than the perceived ‘pests’, are the silent animalrights activists, who have been trying or not — and, generally, failing — to stop them. And why not? Now I’m sure that they will likely reach a settlement to permit them to accept the wrinkle in a practice that is so far untouched by lawsuits, animalcruelty citations, public-shaming campaigns and legislative efforts. Or, then again, it might not. William Perry Victoria

themselves – deer. If you have a problem with the fact that deer need to eat and defecate like all other living creatures, tough beans for you. Would you propose killing all cats, and dogs and horses just they eat and crap all over the place? A deer does not choose to be a deer anymore than a cougar, bear or owl choose to be what it is. Since Mr. Raccoon never made the choice to put on a mask and be a raccoon we have no right to condemn him for behaving like a raccoon. Nor do we have any right to cull any of these animals and determine what their numbers ought to be just because we are living in their garden and in their bathroom. And as for letting me have some of yours well pardon my pun again but they are not your deer they are not Rhonda’s Wentzel’s deer they are nobody’s deer. Andre Mollon Langford

Maple leaf story goes back 200 years Lately, there has been much focused on TV about the War of 1812. It was during that conflict that Canada adopted the maple leaf as its emblem. It started after a large number of Canadian soldiers were shot because of the red uniforms they wore in the battle against the Americans. Their First Nations allies no doubt showed the Canadians the trick of cutting slits in their red blouses and inserting maple leafs for camouflage. This strategy saved the lives of many Canadian troops and gave them new confidence. The Americans had previously adopted the colour blue to distinguish them clearly from the British redcoats in the War for Independence. Canada could not outright defeat the American army of 1812, but they did check them and from that time forward, the maple leaf was Canada’s emblem. Joe Flynn Victoria

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, record-

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

Vision Matters Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Dr. Cameron McCrodan, Dr. Brent Morrison, Dr. Ann-Marie Stewart and Dr. Chris Snow

Your visit to the Optometrist You will spend some time looking at the big “E” on a wall and answering the question, “which is better, one or two?” a few times, but your appointment with your Optometrist will include much more. The eyes and vision are so important and complex that special subgroups of health care professionals have evolved to care for them. Optometrists spend seven or more years at university preparing to provide primary care for your eyes. Your Optometrist will want to know about your general health and medications, both of which can affect vision. Information about how you use your eyes during the day can be very helpful in prescribing appropriate lenses. The visual acuity (how well you can see) is measured for each eye at distance and near, both with corrective lenses and without. Testing is also done to see how well the eyes work together. The health of the yes is assessed using specialized instruments with long names, such as a biomicroscope and an ophthalmoscope. All of the information gathered is used in making recommendations for your vision. Yes, an eye examination is more than looking at an eye chart, much much more.

Americans in Victoria ramp up for election Daniel Palmer News staff

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 at 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. Democrats Abroad Victoria held a Super Saturday in the spring from Victoria to Campbell River, registering roughly 200 U.S. citizens to vote in the presidential election. The group then initiated a campaign in August to target U.S. voters living in Canada from 11 key swing states.

Grow a Native Plant Garden. Residents of the Capital Region are invited to participate in a FREE workshop on gardening with drought-resistant native plants. These informative workshops will be held at Swan Lake Nature House, located at 3873 Swan Lake Road in Victoria.

“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 registration makes 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 vice-presidential debate Oct. 11. There are Democrats Abroad chapters in 51 countries and members in more than 120 countries, according to Hogya. For more information on Democrats Abroad email davictoriachapter@gmail.com.

Anger inspires exhibit

100% locally owned

Charla Huber News staff

Being angry with George Bush got Frank Mitchell’s brush moving. As he got angry with the Bush administration and other leaders the more paintings came out. “Gradually I had a whole set of people,” said the Metchosin painter. Mitchell teamed up with Saanich painter Sylvia Bews-Wright for the show Monsters displayed at the Metchosin Art Gallery. The show opened Oct. 6 and will remain on display until Oct. 28. Both artists work in acrylic paints. Mitchell’s series of paintings is titled Axis of Evil, the name taken from Bush’s state of the union address in 2002. “This comes from me being angry and frustrated at the stupid and misguided behaviour of our southern neighbour. They are trying to solve all the problems by shooting people up,” Mitchell said. Mitchell will display 37 painting of “perpetrators, enablers and victims,” he said. Of his collection Bush and Dick Cheney make his list of perpetrators, Ariel Sharon is marked as an enabler and “the victims are anonymous, the victims are always anonymous.” The paintings were created between 2002 and 2009. “I am showing this to be interesting to other people, I want them to come here and think,” Mitchell said. It was coincidence that BewsWright was working on a series of paintings that would work well with Mitchell’s art. “All of my paintings were all based on leaders of the countries who committed genocide and killed their own people,” Bews-Wright said.

Slyvia Bews-Wright is one of the artists displaying her art in the Metchson Art Gallier’s Monsters show. “Some of them are still in power.” The Saanich painter’s series is titled Ozymandias, after the poem by Percy Shelley. Bews-Wright has become interested in these leaders during her travels along the “Silk Road.” While in Cambodia, BewsWright travelled through a former killing field. “It was the most awful place I have ever been. You see puddles (shallow graves) with fragments of bones and clothing. There were skulls preserved in a glass column several hundred feet high,” Bews-Wright said. Fifteen of Bews-Wright’s paintings are on display and include

images of Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong and Idi Amin. After painting all of theses “monsters,” Bew-Wright said she felt, “elated and cleansed.” For Mitchell it wasn’t that simple. “I am still frustrated at the nonsense that goes on,” Mitchell said. “It takes a village to raise a child. It takes more than one person to do terrible things.” The Metchosin Art Gallery is at 4495 Happy Valley Rd. The gallery is open from noon to 5 p.m. from Thursday to Sunday.

Season offerings Good Person of Setzuan Nov. 8 to 24 Directed by Conrad Alexandrowicz. Based on a Chinese parable, the Bertold Brecht play looks at being a good person in an immoral world – a tale originally set in 19th century Setzuan that remains transferrable to a modernday, North American Chinatown, Alexandrowicz said “It could be anywhere. In a lot of ways we’re in one big world now. Love is worked into this as well. The fact that love blinds us to what we ought to do and makes us make bad decisions, it’s incredibly cleverly put together.”

Reasons to be Pretty Feb. 14 to 23 Directed by Christine Willes. A recent import to Victoria since coming to pursue her M.F.A. in the department, Willes will be taking on the Neil LaBute piece, an examination of the modern obsession with external appearance told through four 20-something blue collar workers. It’s also a play with great writing for women, Willes said. “There’s beauty with the kind of generosity that we all admire in human beings, like kindness

and generosity and ethics,” she added. “We’re constantly reminded that somebody can be externally beautiful and not so nice on the inside.”

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (Revised) March 14 to 23 Directed by Fran Gebhard. Gebhard and her students couldn’t be happier about closing the season with the Peanuts crew. “The theatre department doesn’t do musicals often and the students are ecstatic,” Gebhard said. The show features an unusually musically-inclined cast. “I don’t have to bring anything new to it. The characters are so iconic and the relationships, even though (they were formed) in the ‘50s and ‘60s, they’re still the same with young kids. There are elements of bullying, confidence, being a part of a group, being excluded from a group … having crushes – all of the stuff we went through doesn’t change.” Tickets for all shows (except for Charlie Brown) range from $13 to $24, with $7 preview nights. Season subscriptions are $36 for three plays or $48 for four plays. For more information to to phoenixtheatre.ca or call 250-721-8000.

Care building breaks ground Saanich structure to replace outdated residential housing Natalie North News staff

Greater Victoria is one step closer to achieving a health care goal as construction officially began Tuesday at the Heights at Mt. View, the latest addition to the Campus of Care. The seven-storey, 260-bed residential care facility is a joint effort between Baptist Housing, the Capital Regional Hospital District and the Vancouver Island Health Authority. The $60.5-million Heights at Mt. View will form one-third of the Campus of Care, a site devoted to seniors, housing for the homeless and affordable family housing. “The end is in sight,” said Charlie Nishi, chair of the Baptist Housing board of directors. “This road has had its challenges. “It’s been our concern for a number of years as we endeavour to provide quality residential care while working in buildings that weren’t always optimal for today’s needs.” Unlike other care facilities in the region, The Heights at Mt. View includes two, 20-patient houses specially designed for patients with early stages of dementia.

“They are able to be in a community with people that have similar dementia issues. Those residents actually respond better from a health perspective because they’re around other people like them,” said Howard Johnson, president of Baptist Housing. “In the past, people who suffer from dementia have been placed in care at a high level, and immediately their care deteriorates to the level of the residents who are around them.” The units are designed to feel home-like with private bedrooms, and a shared kitchen, dining room, living room and den area, and moves away from dorm-like facilities built in the 1970s. The Heights at Mount View will eventually replace Baptist Housing’s outdated Central Care Home and Mount Edwards Court. The project is at 3814 Carey Rd., on CRHD land and the former Mount View school site. The CRHD contributed $18.1 towards capital costs to retain public ownership of the land, which will be leased to Baptist housing for 25 years. VIHA will provide operating funding to Baptist Housing, which will also contribute monetarily through a $1-million grant. The building is slated to open in December 2014. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Fighter comes full circle at AFC

Mixed martial arts competitor John Alessio, a six-fight veteran of the UFC, returns to Victoria for a Nov. 3 match. Alessio has been a cornerman and a referee at AFC and but it’s the first time competing in the Victoria-based for the promotion 155-pound lightweight. Photo by Shane O’Neill Photography

John Alessio returns for first fight in Victoria since 1998 Travis Paterson News staff

John Alessio’s fighting career started when he was pumping gas at a Cowichan Valley Esso station 18 years ago. Jason Heit, a pro boxer living in Duncan at the time, pulled in for a fill up. “I had some Gracie MMA stickers on my car and (Alessio) noticed them and started asking

about them,” recalled Heit from his Island MMA gym last week. It was a chance meeting that’s led Alessio through a 15-year career as one of Canada’s best mixed martial arts fighters. “I didn’t have a gym yet, me and a few guys trained in mixed martial arts out of my garage,” Heit said. “(Alessio) was only 15 when he came out but mentally he was tough - no matter what you did to him in practice he took it and

came right back.” Alessio (36-14) is now based in Las Vegas but is returning to fight at Aggression Fighting Championship 13: Natural Selection, Nov. 3 at Bear Mountain Arena, against David Mazany (10-4), also of Las Vegas. His first fight came soon after that chance meeting, one that’s not on the books anywhere. Just 16 years old, Alessio fought a 29-year-old and won.

“He destroyed him,” Heit said. It was still the early days of the sport and some MMA events were running illegally, long before Heit and co-owner Darren Owen started the AFC. “Back in the 90s, we were in the ring in Surrey when there was a raid; 30 RCMP officers came in. I guess it wasn’t licensed,” Heit recalls. “Alessio was fighting and I was in his corner. I threw a hat and a sweater on him and we made it out of there.” By 1999 the two went their separate ways. Heit moved to Los Angeles in 1999 to pursue pro boxing but ended up doing much better as a bodyguard to movie stars such as Drew Barrymore, David Duchovny, Nicholas Cage and music star Robbie Williams. Alessio moved to Victoria to pursue his training with kickboxer Stan Peterec – who now shares his gym space with Island MMA – and pursued pro fighting. “After day one training with Jason (in 1994), I knew there was something inside of me screaming for that,” said Alessio from Las Vegas. “For some people it’s like touching that bad drug, something they keep chasing, and I’ve kept chasing it. “And now I’m back for my first fight in Victoria in 14 years.” Starting in 1998, Peterec put together a few modified MMA tournaments which were deemed legal enough for those days, and they became Alessio’s jumping off point. He was 7-3 when he signed on to fight at UFC 26 in June of 2000. At that time, Alessio began making regular stays in California to train at the Lion’s Den with famed UFC veterans Ken and Frank Shamrock, though these days he’s permanently based out of Vegas where he trains with Xtreme Couture, owned by UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture. “Alessio is an MMA pioneer. He would say at 15-years-old, ‘I’m

going to fight in the UFC,’” Heit said. Back then, UFC was still on its way to becoming the preeminent MMA organization that it is today. Alessio lost that fight but has stuck around the MMA scene, and has won at various levels. In 2012, he returned to the UFC for the third time and, although he lost his July fight to Shane Roller at UFC 148, he’s a big draw for the AFC next month. “I just love the sport and always saw the potential of it,” Alessio said. “It’s grown so much and the difference now is the average person has accepted it. “It took a long time to happen, especially in the smaller parts of Canada, and that’s part of the reason I struck a deal with AFC, to help it grow.” Alessio has never shied away from fighting in back-to-back dates and, should all go well on Nov. 3, he’s committed to AFC 14, Nov. 23, in Edmonton. “It’s how I like it. You’re in shape, hopefully coming off a nice win, so you feel great and your adrenaline is going, so go make some more money,” Alessio said.

AFC here and there Darren Owen and Jason Heit merged the AFC with similar promotions from Edmonton and Calgary earlier this year. Each of the chapters runs its own events, but also pool their resources for “expansion” shows, like AFC 11: Takeover, which drew about 2,000 people to the Winnipeg Convention Centre last month. AFC 13 will also debut Kendall Grove of Hawaii, winner of UFC’s reality television contest, the Ultimate Fighter 3, in 2006. Locals entering the cage on Nov. 3 include Triston Connelly and Dillon Brown of Island MMA in Victoria with Diego Wilson, Ryan Jane and Alexi Argyriou of Zuma in Vic West.

Winning Royals can benefit from NHL lockout good hockey thing going on in Victoria right now. The Victoria Grizzlies are also off to a great start in Colwood. And never overlook the excitement and intimacy of a junior B game. The only team better than the Saanich Braves in the nine-team Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League is the firstplace Victoria Cougars.

Junior hockey teams off to great start in Victoria Travis Paterson News staff

No one in the major junior ranks is banking on it. But even if it’s just a little, the Western Hockey League stands to benefit from the NHL’s greedy antics. Last week the NHL cancelled its October games. The general consensus around the NHL lockout is Canadian junior hockey leagues could see a small rise in attendance, but not enough to warrant extra marketing. “Normally, we compete with Hockey Night in Canada on Saturdays, so that’s not happening,” said Victoria Royals owner Graham Lee at the start of the WHL season. “If the fans come out because we’re winning that’s great, if they come out because there’s no NHL, I guess that will be a benefit for us too. I’m more concerned with building a winning environment for the team,” Lee said. During the 2004-05 NHL lockout, however, the Vancouver Giants grew their following immensely in Metro Vancouver. That year the Giants climbed out of their expansion cradle and began the path to back-to-back Memorial Cup visits in 2006 and 2007. And now the Royals look like a team poised to breakout, drawing a small but notable similarity. With the retooled leadership core of head coach Dave Lowry and general manager Cam Hope, a crew of talented 18- and 19-year-olds looking to prove themselves,

Hockey night in Victoria The Royals host the Kelowna Rockets Friday (Oct. 12) and Saturday nights, 7:05 p.m. at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. The Kerry Park Islanders visit the Cougars tomorrow (Oct. 11), 7 p.m. at Archie Browning Sports Centre in Esquimalt. Friday night the Westshore Wolves visit the Saanich Braves, 6:30 p.m. at Pearkes arena. Shaw TV will air the Royals on Nov. 20, Dec. 5, Jan. 25 and Feb. 15.

Murphy leads Vees into den Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Eight-year-olds Ryan Kuhn and Hailey Lewis gear up to cheer on the Victoria Royals at Save-On-Foods Memorial Arena. and a bevy of top 15- and 16-year-old prospects yet to contribute, the Royals look like a team on the rise. The Royals won their first three games and are turning fans into believers with wins like last week’s come-from-behind victory over the Medicine Hat Tigers. Alex Gogolev scored to tie the game with a minute remaining and Brett Cote scored in overtime for the win. It’s still early, but that’s the kind of stuff winning teams do. It’s also the kind of stuff that draws on-the-

fence hockey fans, and displaced Canucks’ fans, off of their couches and into the local arena. Sportsnet and Shaw television have both said they will explore added coverage of WHL games, should the NHL lockout continue. The added games won’t air until at least November, however, and it’s likely only a few of them, if any, will be Royals’ games. This month is a chance for displaced hockey fans to get some live hockey and popcorn. And the Royals aren’t the only

Spectrum Community school graduate Wade Murphy and the RBC Cup national champion Penticton Vees visit the Victoria Grizzlies on Friday (Oct. 12). Murphy, who turns 19 on Oct. 22, was traded from the Grizzlies to the Vees last year and is in the top-10 in scoring in the BCHL. He’s committed to the North Dakota Fighting Sioux for 2013 and attended NHL prospect camp for the Calgary Flames this summer. Vees goalie Chad Katunar is also from Victoria, and started the season with seven straight wins. The Grizzlies host the Vees, 7:15 p.m Friday night and Alberni Valley Bulldogs, 1:30 p.m. Sunday at Bear Mountain Arena. sports@vicnews.com
