Firefighters’ history of giving takes a step forward Tim Collins News staff

The Oak Bay Fire Department has a long history of giving back to the community and is now building on that tradition with the establishment of a registered charitable foundation. The firefighters were granted charitable status last month and are excited that the new designation will improve the way they serve the community through their volunteer efforts. “We’re a professional department, but we volunteer a lot of hours to give back to the community.” said Greg Swan, the ExecuTim Collins tive Director of the Oak Bay Reporting Fire Fighters Charitable Society. “This is going to make us even more effective in that volunteer work.” That’s not to say that the firefighters haven’t been effective in their past fundraising activities. In fact, their efforts have demonstrated a remarkable connection to the community they serve. One example of that service came at the very beginning of 2012 when the firefighters operated a Christmas tree recycling program. It was the 15th year for the project which managed to raise $3,200. The money was put back into the community – recycled, so to speak – through a series of $500 scholastic bursaries awarded by the firefighters to students of Oak Bay High.

Oak Bay firefighter Greg Swan is pleased that the Oak Bay Fire Department is being recognized as a registered charitable foundation.

Books for Africa program continues to evolve Tim Collins News staff

Every year, Oak Bay’s Doug Funk packs his things and heads for Africa. But he doesn't go empty handed. Since 2009, he has also taken books, and not just a few – tens of thousands. And hes about to do it again. He’s in the process of filling a 12-metre container with about 60,000 titles for shipment in about eight weeks. Funk is the executive director of the Solon Foundation, a non-sectarian charitable foundation based in Lucerne, Switzerland. For about four months of every year, Funk lives and works in village districts of Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi, where he oversees a number of projects, including a literacy program that distributes books to about 139,000 children in 328 schools. Some of the books will once again be used in a library that has been developed by the foundation in the village of Nyanga. That library places a portion of their books into mobile trunk libraries that are in turn taken to schools in even more remote regions. Those trunks are rotated on a regular basis between village schools. The remainder of the primary level books will be going to the villages of Gwanda, Chibuwe and Neshuro where they will get similar use. The Solon Foundation is working toward establishing permanent libraries in the latter two of those villages.

Funk has piles of books already, however, he is in need of many more. “We’ll be sending the books in December, but need to have them in by November at the latest to allow for sorting and packaging,” said Funk. “Any kind of books, but especially the primary reading level and the tertiary level books (are needed).”

Used cell phones provide a lifeline in rural Africa When the Solon Foundation sends its shipment of books to Africa this year there will be a few additional boxes inside the shipping container, but these boxes won’t be full of books. Instead, Funk will be cooperating with a new movement to send used cellphones to Zimbabwe and Malawi.

phone helpline services for children who have been sexually or physically abused or who are being neglected and need help. If they can get to a phone, these children can let volunteers at Childline know where they are and what’s happening – even if those children live in remote, rural villages. The organization then offers advice or can contact authorities to help the child. Davis’ Africa Calling organization wants to give children access to those phones. “The phones are placed in clinics or schools or anywhere where the children can go and make the call,” he said. The situation is very similar in Malawi but is compounded by the fact that 12 per cent of the adult population there is HIV positive. Girls aged 15 to 24 have the highest incidence of HIV with every one in seven carrying the disease. That’s primarily due to a lack of information and support for sexual and reproductive health and the fact that many young girls are either sexually abused or forced into very young marriages. “The situation is very serious,” said Davis.

Doug Funk, left, and Kevin Davis are surrounded by boxes of books and school supplies headed to Africa. The pair are hoping to collect more cellphones and phone chargers to send along with the books. Sharon Tiffin/News staff

While the original focus of the literacy program was on the provision of these primary level books for younger readers, Funk’s program has expanded. “We’ve found that there is a need for tertiary books in these regions,” said Funk. “A lot of people here at home have their old university text books sitting on a shelf, and they’ll never look at them again. In Africa, these books are important tools for continuing education.” The subject matter for these books might range from mathematics to agriculture to accounting and agriculture, they are all valuable resources in areas where books of this kind are difficult, if not impossible, to come by. “These books can have an enormous impact on someone in these areas,” said Funk. “Greater than anyone might imagine.” While some of those university-level books will stay in the villages, they will primarily be sent to the Open University in the capital city of Harare, Zimbabwe.

How to donate ■ Books, cellphones and chargers can be dropped off at the Compassionate Warehouse, Bay 2-831 Devonshire Rd. ■ More information on Funk’s work with the Solon Foundation can be found at facebook.com/pages/SolonFoundation-Zimbabwe, or go to africacalling.ca. ■ Funk can be contacted by email at dougsolon@gmail.com.

The idea started out as a school project at Camosun College and has evolved into an organization known as Africa Calling. Its founder, Kevin Davis, is passionate about the project and thankful to Funk for his assistance in helping the project take the next steps. “I took 40 phones over last year, carried in a suitcase, and they were immediately put to use,” said Davis. “It doesn’t matter if the phones are older models, they can use any kind of phone at all. There’s a desperate need.” Since his last visit, Davis has received requests for 5,000 more phones. Those requests come primarily from two organizations: Childline in Zimbabwe and KASO (Kanengo AIDS Support Organization) in Malawi. Childline is an organization that offers 24-hour free

“Giving these girls access to a phone where they can contact (KASO) can save their lives.” Davis and his volunteers will accept any cellphones and stresses that there’s also a need for chargers of all kinds, including the 12-volt car chargers. “I know it seems strange to ask for car chargers for villages without electricity,” said Davis. “But they are precious.” People in rural villages will travel miles on bicycle to charge a used car battery in a village with electricity. They then bring that car battery back to their village, where it’s used to charge the cellphones, he explained. “We want any cellphones or chargers,” said Davis. “We’ll mix and match the phones and ensure that all the information stored on the phones is cleared before they’re shipped.” Davis is currently negotiating for the support of a series of corporate supporters of his program. “If we can get more help, I know we can make a difference,” he said. It’s a pleasure to be helping this organization,” said Funk. “It’s exciting to see the students (at Camosun) getting involved. We need to sustain the idealism – to get young people involved.” reporter@vicnews.com

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-increasing 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 all local stores affected, issued a statement noting that while they don’t often purchase

beef from XL Foods, they bought “small amounts of whole beef cuts� during the period in question. They have since removed all affected products from their shelves. The CFIA has reported that four people have fallen ill in Alberta linked to e.coli-tainted beef from the XL plant.

New name, new brand for Queen Alexandra foundation

Mike Boorman

Kyle Wells News staff

What’s in a name? A great deal, according to the newly named Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island, formerly called the Queen Alexandra Foundation for Children. The Saanich-based foundation announced the change to a large crowd at the West Shore Child, Youth and Family Centre on Wale Road in Colwood last Wednesday. The name change comes as a desire to reflect of the foundation’s increasing role in helping families throughout Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, and to expand the foundation’s association beyond one facility, the Queen Alexandra Centre for Children’s Health on Arbutus Road. The foundation also operates Jeneece Place at the Victoria General Hospital and child, youth and family centres in Colwood and Sooke. “What we recognized is that the work we are doing has changed over the years, we weren’t just associated with one hospital site anymore,” president and chief executive officer Rob Hewitt said. “This name now tells what we really do. The name has caught up with our mandate.” The name is intended to more accurately reflect the role of the organization, Hewitt said. As the services provided by the foundation help people from throughout Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, the name is intended to be more inclusive and broad. “People from up Island are the ones most served,” Hewitt said. “They come here and when they’re here they appreciate it, they go back to their communities and talk about their experiences and say ‘we have to help support that.’” With the broader name it is hoped more donors will come forward from up Island. The potential for expansion is also there, Hewitt said, but those

are all future considerations. “We’ve achieved so much in the 90 year history of this organization,” Hewitt said. “Today we’re opening a new chapter in our story of supporting children and youth.” Rob Doucette’s family received help from the foundation after their twin sons were born. Now 17 months old, the two children were at the announcement Kyle Wells/News staff wearing T-shirts with Ron Hewitt, president and chief executive officer, announced that the the foundation’s new Queen Alexandra Foundation for Children is changing its name. logo. “It’s a classy organization, so it’s not surprising that body,” Doucette said. because they’ve been so excelthey’ve chosen to go this route “This is the least we can do lent to our family.” and it’s a win-win for everyto give back to the foundation kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

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 run-up 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 from which James was so keen to distance herself and the NDP, 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

Readers respond: transit fare hikes, freedom of information Higher ridership key to easing financial 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. It is like a joke to the driver. 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

Keeping informed critical in democracy Re: City seeks limits on requests for information (News, Oct. 3) I just read your article detailing how City of Victoria staff have applied to the Freedom of Information Office to prevent journalists working for or with Focus magazine from pursuing more than one active request at a time, including the appeal period. I want to express my personal outrage over this blatant attempt by city staff to muzzle the magazine from reporting

the city’s many machinations and its undeniable history of spinning a hurricane of misinformation over the Johnson Street Bridge replacement project. This latest move by City Hall to derail the democratic process is laughably transparent. I sincerely hope it will be resisted by the authorities concerned, especially the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for B.C. Publisher Dave Broadland and Focus magazine should be commended by all who care about our city, for keeping its citizens fully informed, while the staff at City Hall are busy coming up with a multitude of ways to prevent that very information, the lifeblood of democracy, from being revealed to citizens who are paying the freight.

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

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.

Poacher kills deer with arrow in Saanich

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 - OAK

Edward Hill News staff

A person mowing a vacant lot found a dead deer last Wednesday with an green arrow lodged in its right abdomen, in the first case of poaching this fall. The person found the buck in a grassy lot on Ironwood Place near Claremont high school, around 1:45 p.m., on Oct. 3, and called the Saanich pound. Officers estimate

the animal had been there for one or two days. Saanich pound investigators suspect the poacher shot the animal with a crossbow, and it bolted and fled an unknown distance. Residential neighbourhoods surround the area, but Elk/Beaver Lake park is directly west, across the Pay Bay Highway. Herds of deer are also known to live in the Mount Doug area, to the southeast.

Exactly how much is an inch of water? And how do you measure it?

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

Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen said pound officers have tallied three or four deer shot with arrows in the Claremont area in the past few years. “That area seems to be a focal point,” Jantzen said. “This animal appears to have fled from where it was struck. It is certainly a painful way to go.” A photo released by the Saanich police shows the buck covered in flies, with an arrow with dark green fletchings (feathers) protruding

from is rear-mid abdomen. Saanich had nine known deer poaching instances in the fall of 2010, and four last fall, where people found animals with arrow wounds or with heads and limbs cut off. Witnesses reported a few living deer walking around with arrows sticking out of their bodies. “This is a safety issue as much as a wildlife issue. Crossbows shoot with significant velocity and are capable of dropping a deer,” Jantzen said. “They are a high-velocity weapon.” Police are reminding people that deer hunting in urban Greater Victoria is illegal, and contravenes municipal bylaws. Discharging weapons, including crossbows, in an urban area can bring criminal charges.

Funding windfall for UVic ocean observatory Marine research received a major boost last week as federal and provincial governments chipped in $41.7 million toward the Ocean Network Canada, which manages the Neptune and the Venus underwater observatories. The University of Victoria-run proj-

ect uses sensor technologies to gather continuous data and images from the ocean depths and streams the live data around the globe. It includes the world’s largest deep-sea tsunami early-warning array, instruments to improve marine safety in the Strait of Georgia, and the first subsea instru-

ment platform in the Arctic. “The significance of this funding support cannot be overstated," said Kate Moran, president of Ocean Networks Canada. “It enables Canada to maintain global leadership in cabled ocean observatory technology and research while playing a major role in

understanding our oceans in an era of significant change.” The Canada Foundation for Innovation’s major science initiatives contributed $32.8 million, while the Ministry of Advanced Education came up with $8.9 million. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Victoria loses bid for Junos Roszan Holmen News staff

OAK BAY RECREATION CENTRE 1975 BEE STREET

Friday OCTOBER 12, 12pm to 7pm Saturday OCTOBER 13, 10am to 6pm Sunday OCTOBER 14, 10am to 5pm

Victoria has lost its bid to host the 2014 JUNO Awards to Winnipeg, and the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences is keeping tight lipped about its reasoning. “While we wish we could tell you the reasons why Greater Victoria was not chosen by CARAS (Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences), they made the decision without visiting Victoria or meeting with our team,” wrote Ray Parks, president of the Capital Region Music Awards Society, which submitted the bid to host the awards. “In the coming days, we will attempt to gain a better understanding of CARAS’ selection process and the reasons for their decision.” CARAS president, Melanie Berry, said in a statement that the board of directors balanced all “relevant and collateral factors” in coming to its decision. “While each bid remains confidential, Victoria put in an excellent bid package but was not the winning bid to host the 2014 JUNO Awards,” said Berry. Whether the Capital Region’s bid committee will try again to secure the JUNOs in 2015 or 2016 is yet to be seen. “A decision to prepare a Greater Victoria bid for 2015 or 2016 will depend on the results of this discussion with CARAS and if we receive continuing support from our provincial and municipal government partners,” said Parks, in a letter posted to capitalregionmusicawards.com. The provincial government had pledged $1.5 million to help stage the event. Winnipeg hosted the JUNOS in 2005. It will host the 2014 awards on March 30. Regina, Sask., will host the 2013 awards. rholmen@vicnews.com

Collective blends fashion, creativity An all-female business collective quietly opened in the heart of downtown Victoria last month, taking over a 4,200-square-foot space in the 1400-block of Broad St. “We are a bridal, beauty and fashion collective,” said Marion Groot, owner of Ma-Luxe Studios and brainchild behind The Studio Collective. Ma-Luxe Studios offers tiered membership for studio use and collaborative services. Its current members include professionals in photography, makeup and hair artistry, bridal fashion and accessories. The collective provides creative services to private and commercial clients, Groot said. The studio space is also Don Descoteau available for private Biz Beat functions. “We have our brides and beauty and fashion clients and then our commercial clients ... in Victoria and abroad, and we help them develop visual content for their branding.” Groot has been providing bridal and branding services for several years, and was inspired to create the collective after experiencing firsthand the difficulty of connecting with other small business owners. “When you’re an entrepreneur and trying to move your business forward, it can often be quite lonely,” she said. “The women involved definitely get a sense of camaraderie.” Ma-Luxe Studios is providing services for 110 weddings this year alone, and is already booking into 2014.

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.

All this fundraising is accomplished through an assortment of large events organized by the four participating groups of firefighters in the Greater Victoria area. “Once a year some of our guys strap on the skates to play past NHL greats in an old timers hockey game,” said Swan. “We also put on a magic show (with professional magicians) and in December we join with firefighters from the mainland to host the Bright Lights in Stanley Park.” The Stanley Park event sees firefighters from across the Lower Mainland and the Island set up and take down a display of lights that involves more than a million lights.

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

Become a Psychiatric Nurse in your own community There is an urgent need for more Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPN), particularly outside the urban areas of the province. And with the workforce aging – the average age of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse in BC is 47 years – the number of retirees from the profession is exceeding the number of graduates. Entry-level earnings start at $30.79/hour to $40.42/hour. Train Locally – The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is accredited by the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC (CRPNBC). Government student loans, Employment & Labour Market Services (ELMS), band funding & other financing options available to qualified applicants.
