Hospital launches campaign Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation raising funds for new recovery room Devon MacKenzie News staff

A new post-anaesthesia recovery room is in the works for the Saanich Peninsula Hospital after the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation announced its new fundraising campaign Oct. 4. A crowd of hospital staff, local dignitaries and Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation members gathered in the hospital’s Len Barlow Rose Garden to hear about the foundation’s plan. “After opening the new operating rooms (earlier this year), all we need is the final piece which is the recovery room,” said Brentwood Lodge General Manager, hospital foundation volunteer and Honourary Campaign Chair, Dan Behune during the ceremony. “At the moment, we have patients waiting the hallways before and after surgeries so this new room is essential.” The new technologically-advanced operating rooms officially opened Aug. 23, and Barb Mollberg, clinical nurse leader of surgical services and endoscopy, agrees the new plan for the recovery room would put the final piece of the puzzle in place. “Everyone is excited about the new operating rooms. The innovations are outstanding, and improve both efficiency and effectiveness. But what will complete the picture is a modernization of the post anesthesia recovery room,” she said.

The 2012 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team rolled into Sidney Oct. 4 to a warm welcome from residents and supporters. The team made their first stop just after 2 p.m. at Stantec Sidney to attend the engineering firm’s barbecue and fundraiser. Stantec has hosted the event for the last three years to help raise funds for the cause.

The riders left West Sidney and headed to the Mary Winspear Centre where they met with dozens of fellow cyclers who rode with them down Beacon Avenue in a show of support. The riders and support team then gathered in Beacon Park for a celebration, an impromptu head shave and several more cheque presentations including ones from Black Press, Parkland Secondary School and the Victoria Airport Authority. The riders wrapped up their tour that began Sept. 23 in Port Alice on Oct. 5 in downtown Victoria at Centennial Square. Steven Heywood/News staff

Mollberg added in a media release that old operating room space can be updated to house a recovery room that would include a new nursing station, two pre-op spaces, seven postop spaces, a patient washroom and a new endoscopy suite. There are currently no private pre-op spaces, no patient washrooms and only five small post-op spaces in the old operating wing space. The foundation is looking to raise $2 million for the project, $1.2 million of which has already been donated. Trevor Deeley’s estate contributed $500,000 to the project. “Trev saw our hospital as the heart of the community”, said Deeley’s executor, Dale Henley. “He encouraged us to improve and grow it.” Karen Morgan, the foundation’s executive director, said she hopes with more than half of the money raised already, the campaign will reach its target quickly. “My goal is to wrap (the campaign up) before Christmas,” she laughed.

Central Saanich hosts the community

Sidney mayor to have surgery

Municipality seeking public feedback on proposed town hall project Devon MacKenzie News staff

Residents of Central Saanich will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the municipality’s proposed town hall project this weekend. Residents were mailed information on the project last week and will now have a chance to give their opinions on the potential multimillion dollar redevelopment plan for the municipal complex on Mount Newton Cross Road. According to the municipality, they have engaged in a comprehensive facilities planning process which indicated that the existing municipal complex needs

to be replaced or renovated due to health and safety concerns. The building, housing municipal, police and fire services also has a critical lack of space for some departments they say. Faced with the need for improved facilities, council decided to pursue new construction as the most costeffective solution in 2009. Since then, the municipality has been working with a local architecture firm on space planning and conceptual design for a separate administrative and police building. Construction on a new satellite fire station on Keating X Road has already begun. The town hall project team hosted an open house in the

Mayor Alastair Bryson summer of 2011 but say they now want to make sure that the path they are choosing ensures future phases of work reflect community directions and priorities. The community engagement program will provide opportunities for public input, including online tools

available through the project website and two community meetings. “Community involvement is critical to the success of the town hall project and I encourage Central Saanich residents to engage in the process,” said Mayor Alastair Bryson. The first community meeting will be held Saturday, Oct. 13 at the fire hall training room of the municipal complex (1903 Mount New-

ton X Rd.) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The meeting will include an open house display along with presentations from the project team. A brief question and answer period will follow as well as guided tours of the municipal complex to help familiarize attendees with the existing facilities and some of the building condition challenges.

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.

OUR VIEW

Politicians are still dug in Don’t expect there to be much more public input on a pair of North Saanich area housing development proposals — other than what municipal government legislation calls for as each application works through the system. That was the message delivered by the majority of North Saanich council in their recent rejection Citizens hope, of Mayor Alice proposal then, that they use Finall’s to seek additional that time wisely public consultation options on issues relating to density. The idea from councillor Celia Stock that this kind of public input requires a council to have an open mind — and not a mind made up — is nice thinking. But that’s as far as that goes. It’s clear most, if not all, of council has its mind made up. The positions are clear and they say that’s been the case since the last municipal election. A majority wants such growth to take place as soon as it is able. The rest are for a more measured approach at best — little to no growth at worst. This is a voting pattern that a little public input isn’t going to change. To do that, North Saanich’s elected officials would have to disregard their constituents’ and their own opinions to really try to be objective. For some, that could be politically dangerous and why there’s unlikely to be major shifts in position around the table. If council sticks with the mandated public hearings and developer information meetings, there are only two specific moments at which residents can have their say. And both offer little or no back-and-forth between the council and their citizens. People can, of course, fill the council chamber and lobby the politicans on their own time. Yet, council, if it so decides, doesn’t have to set aside any more time. Citizens hope, then, that they use that time wisely. What do you think?

“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 over-emphasized 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 deadend 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

LETTERS North Saanich project is market housing On Oct. 4, the North Saanich Residents Association organized a public meeting to discuss plans for increasing housing density in selected areas of the municipality. One application, at 9395 E. Saanich Rd., requests a reduction in lot size to 300m2, a 350 per cent increase in lot density. It was felt by the NSRA the scale of change inherent in the current applications warranted a public information meeting. It was standing room only in St. John’s Church and expertly convened by Geoff Orr, the NSRA president. Several attendees were quick to con-

gratulate the NSRA for a balanced and fact-based meeting. The topic of workforce housing, also termed affordable or attainable housing, quickly drew comments from many. A predominantly Sidney-based industry group has made a case for increased workforce housing in North Saanich as many of their employees endure long commutes. Although many agreed workforce/ affordable housing may be needed, they also questioned whether $400,000 dwellings were truly affordable for non-managerial workers or whether they would be

actually occupied by employees from the industry group. Perhaps the development at 9395 should just be more accurately termed market housing. The high turnout at this meeting, which included several councillors, and the nature of the questions and comments, indicates a strong desire by residents for more background information and discussion before these significant changes are fast tracked through council. Springfield Harrison North Saanich

Readers respond: Growth, homelessness and wages Affordable housing is not affordable

Ignorance is bliss, but foolish Re: Woodwynn Farms’ homeless housing. Creating hopefulness — words evoking a dreamy fantasy designed to pull at the heartstrings. And surely anyone who has a heart would jump at the chance to contribute to righting the wrongs of this world, especially in our own neighbourhood.

Public wages far above private sector Re: Wages need to match inflation (Our View, Sept. 19) While this endorsement is an admirable idea in light of tough economic times, one really needs to consider what is developing globally. In Europe economies are falling like dominoes, the U.S. our largest trading partner is still mired in a deep recession and China is catching its breath. B.C. and Canada are not isolated from this contagion. World banks and bond companies are beginning to take a long hard look at all levels of government borrowing and here in B.C., our debt will reach $56.7 billion by March 2013. The interest on this debt will be $2.55 billion. This represents six per cent of the province’s expenditures and will limit the amount used to help pay for health and education. The public in B.C. can not afford any more burden on the provincial or municipal debt load. Appoint a provincial and municipal ombudsman whose role is to expose these excesses and make our leaders and elected politicians accountable. Danny Parker Saanich

Let’s be clear about the 9395 East Saanich / Canora Road development. At the Oct. 4 NSRA (North Saanich Residents Association) meeting, the developer stated he wanted to provide affordable housing for young families. He then stated North Saanich moms and dads can come up with the five per cent down payment so the kids can buy a home. Say what? These proposed houses aren’t affordable at all. In my book, if you can’t come up with a mere $20,000 to buy a house, it’s not affordable. If the starting house price is 10 times the developer’s stated average income of these workers of $40,000, it’s not affordable. As house prices continue to slide, all it takes is a further five per cent correction and these families will be crushed, owing more to the banks than their house is worth. This is what sunk housing in the U.S. and it’s what will crush these young North Saanich families. Ask any realtor. Listings are up against a backdrop of falling sales and prices. Yup — there’s plenty of resale housing stock at similar prices now on the market on the Peninsula. Retirees are moving out of their family homes into condos and smaller homes (perhaps these ones). This is turning existing neighborhoods back into vibrant streets where there’s actual parks, and a nice mix of old people, young people, kids, dogs, scooters and trikes. The real motivator here is for the developer to make money building Langford-style subdivisions. Let’s not let this happen at the expense of some of our most vulnerable members of society — lower income young families. Ty West North Saanich

Who would put up $6 million for a 192-acre hay farm — ideally sited by in the ALR — then neglect maintenance of the farm buildings and fields? Where’s the return on the investment? Is this altruism or a canny business venture with a housing development in mind? Who is Richard LeBlanc? What are his credentials and what has become of monies donated over the years? The public deserves full disclosure. Ignorance is bliss, but foolish. Susan Wells North Saanich

NEWS REVIEW

Citing a duplication of confidentiality rules between the District

of North Saanich community charter and its council oath of office bylaw, council voted to repeal that oath on Oct. 1.

The vote effectively returns council to its previous oath of office, one that did not make as strong a point on the confidentiality rules.

FLU SEASON IS HERE FLU CLINIC INFORMATION The best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu this season is to get immunized. For more information or to find out if you are eligible for a FREE flu shot: • visit www.viha.ca/flu • call the local Public Health Unit @ 250 544-2400 • call Health Link BC at 8-1-1 If you are eligible for a free flu shot, please bring your Care Card to the Flu Clinic. If you are not eligible please contact your family physician or local pharmacy about vaccine availability and cost.

Brought into effect in 2010, an oath of office bylaw update by the council of the day included a confidential information stipulation. It, in effect, mirrored Section 117 of the charter, which lays out the rules of confidential information handled by the municipality, and the ramifications for members of council. Mayor Alice Finall says the 2010 bylaw alerts councillors, new and old, and the public about issues of confidentiality on council. “Not only is there that civil responsibility, but under the the Freedom of Information (and Protection of Privacy) Act, there is a

criminal aspect,” she said, noting a breach of said act can bring legal action against a municipality or a councillor. Councillor Celia Stock agreed confidentiality is a good thing to emphasize and noted councillor Dunstan Browne had said in his proposal to repeal the 2010 oath bylaw, that it was a duplication of the charter and not needed. Stock said it was important to her to ensure the rule was made doubly-clear, by means of the oath of office. A 4-3 vote ended the discussion and the 2010 oath of office bylaw was repealed.

The contentious oath “As required by Section 117 of the Community Charter, unless specifically authorized otherwise by Council, I will keep in confidence any record held in confidence by the municipality until that record is released to the public as lawfully authorized or required, and I will keep in confidence any information considered in any part of a Council or Committee meeting that was lawfully closed to the public, until the Council or Committee discusses the information at a meeting that is open to the public or releases the information to the public, and l recognize that I may be held liable if I contravene my duty to respect confidentiality.”

News staff

A flaming wreck near the runway of the Victoria International Airport saw a quick response from firefighters, paramedics and police on Oct. 4. Quick response fire trucks got to the scene and doused the flames with fire retardant foam and firefighters cut into the fuselage of a downed aircraft to get to the trapped passengers inside. It was all a simulation — an emergency preparedness exercise — designed to test the response times of the airport emergency services and the crews from the Town of Sidney and the North and Central Saanich fire departments. “It’s part of our emergency preparations and we plan for it regularly,” said airport authority president and CEO Geoff Dickson. “It’s a regular event every four years to have such a major simulation.” Dickson said the response to a fake downed aircraft at the west end of the airport, complete with live volunteer victims, flame, smoke and foam, went well and the emergency response department will review the effort to make sure they hit their targets. One of the main goals, he said, was to ensure airport fire crews can get the call, get on the tarmac and hit a fire with foam in two minutes. “It went better than we could have expected,” said Dickson, adding there were some glitches with communications outside of the airport to their mutual aid partners. Those would be addressed, he said, and improvements made to ensure a better result. “It could happen here,” he admitted, “but the probability is pretty low. But we have to prepare for it.” North Saanich Volunteer Fire Department chief Gary Wilton said as a mutual aid partner to the airport, if there is a need for water supply, hand line work, patient retrieval they offer their support. “We practice patient handling, transporting and we supply the airport trucks with extra

always a challenge but it’s first class from what I can see in the first response.” Overall communications is one area to work through, he added. As

“It’s really testing your overall emergency response plan,” he said, adding they perform a major test every four years (the last one was in 2008 with the Town of Sidney and in 2005, live at the airport) and a variety of table-top exercises throughout the year.

Grade 5 students from elementary schools all over School District 63 were taught about fire safety last week thanks to the Peninsula’s volunteer fire departments. Students were bused to the Central Saanich fire hall throughout the week of Oct. 1 and participated in several different stations where they got to learn about everything from how to use a fire extinguisher to cooking safety and

The Sidney Scotiabank branch is accepting donations for the Sidney Lions food bank. The food bank, which serves over 1,000 residents on the Peninsula each month, is the target of an October fundraising initiative at the bank and will also be their focus later in the year as well. “We’ll be starting the bins next week to accept food donations throughout the month of October, and we’re also planning another donation period in December as well,” said Meghan Durham, Sidney Scotiabank customer relations representative. “We’ll also provide receipts for

any customers who wish to make a cash donation to the cause as well, if they prefer that over donating food items.” The bank has held barbecues for the food bank and other community not-for-profits, but this year they weren’t able to co-ordinate such an event due to lack of staff. “We just don’t have the staff numbers to be able to man a barbecuetype event like we’ve done in past years, so instead we will be accepting donations throughout the month and then again in December.” Donations of non-perishable food items or money can be made at the branch at 2355 Beacon Ave. until the end of the month. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Cowboy Celtic to play Sidney FIND US ON FACEBOOK PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW

SIDNEY — The Deep Cove Folk Club is pleased to present Alberta based Cowboy Celtic in Sidney at the Mary Winspear Centre on Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. The group includes David Wilkie on mandolin and vocals, Denise Withnell on guitar and vocals, Keri Lynn Zwicker on harp and vocals and Joseph Hertz on fiddle. The group has played together for 17 years and last summer toured Ecuador and Peru. Cowboy Celtic has recorded six CDs, the second of which (Cowboy Ceilidh) won the National Cowboy Hall of Fame

Wrangler Award for Outstanding Traditional Western Music Album in 1999. “We don’t play traditional Celtic music and we don’t play traditional cowboy music,” said Wilkie. “We play the kind of music that you’d have heard if you pushed back the swingin’ doors at an Irish pub in Tombstone or Dodge City.” Cowboy Celtic is the creation of Wilkie, who recorded the first Cowboy Celtic CD in 1995. It was supposed to be a oneoff project to highlight the music of Ireland and Scotland that con-

nects the cowboy music of the American Old West to Celtic traditions. The one-off project blossomed into a busy musical career. The historical basis to Cowboy Celtic’s music is that many cowboys in the Old West emigrated from Ireland and Scotland and brought their familiar Celtic melodies along with them to the western cattle drives and roundups. Tickets are $25 and available from the Mary Winspear Centre box office or online at www. marywinspear.ca. — Submitted

Seniors bend over backwards for Bikram Practicing yoga can aid aging bodies say seniors Devon MacKenzie News staff

A handful of seniors are literally bending over backwards and making yoga at Bikram Yoga Sidney part of their weekly routine. Bruce Campbell, David Bearden and Joe Bradley (all in their 70s) have been attending hot yoga at the school on average of three times a week for the last yearand-a-half and say the benefits of practicing Bikram have come through in their everyday lives. “I’m more flexible, I feel like my spine is straighter and I sleep better,” said Campbell. “I think a lot of my friends think I do funny things like stand on my head when I tell them I do yoga.” He added he feels that Bikram is a serious stretch exercise.

Bikram Yoga is based on yoga-guru Bikram Choudhury’s signature series of 26 postures. The postures are done in a heated room for 90 minutes and are designed to help increase strength and flexibility. Wendy Crowther, the school’s owner for the last three years, said the benefits of practicing Bikram yoga on a regular basis can be seen at any age. “I would say most of our students are around middle age but we have a handful of seniors like Bruce, David and Joe that come on a consistent basis,” she said. “It’s nice because Bikram allows people to move at their own pace and do a little bit of each pose as they are able. And practicing in the heat is the safest way to stretch more inflexible, or older muscles and bones.” Crowther said practicing Bikram hot

yoga can help people achieve a balance between two essential components of a healthy lifestyle. “We teach people to learn for themselves the balance between strength and flexibility. The balance between the two is a foundation of good health,” she said, adding Bikram is an accessible way for people of all abilities to pursue a healthy lifestyle. “I always go back to one of Bikram’s quotes about yoga, which is that you’re never too sick, you’re never too old, it’s never too bad and it’s never too late to start from scratch with Bikram yoga. To me, that just sums it up,” she said. For more information on Bikram Yoga Sidney and hot yoga in general, visit bikramyogasidney.com or call 250-6559642. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

I had considered a cow, but the lot wasn’t large enough and we weren’t zoned agricultural (and Himself balked at the idea of milking one) so that was out.

The neighbours looked horrified at the idea of a rooster welcoming the dawn, so I gave up and we erected a dog pen for our Boxer to be used when he was left at home.

Years ago when I’d come inside, hands covered in dirt, Jim used to say, “You should have married a farmer.” I probably would have, but none ever proposed!
