Region draws record number of foreign students Camosun, Uvic, RRU see international spike Natalie North News staff

ers will perhaps feel inconvenienced by walking up the two sets of stairs to get there, Henderson noted. The majority of the 450 people who responded to a survey on the future of the clubhouse indicated they wanted some kind of food service on the upper level.

Universities and colleges across Greater Victoria are seeing the payoff in campaigns to recruit abroad, as international student enrollment has spiked this year. It’s a trend that isn’t likely to slow as the number of high school grads in B.C. decreases and Camosun College, Royal Roads and the University of Victoria continue to ramp up recruitment and programming geared to attract foreign students. “We’ve come to accept that Victoria is a destination that brings people from all over the world,” said Thevi Pather, director of global advancement at Royal Roads University. “We recognize that given the changing demographics in B.C., we need to offer programs that bring together Canada and different parts of the world and offer a more diverse set of programs.” Royal Roads currently has 220 international students registered in on-campus programs, up from 150 last year. The bulk of those students have come to RRU from Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Israel, Russia, as well as China and India, where growth in the 15-to 25-year-old demographic has created an outpouring of international students. China and India also top the list of 53 source countries for international registries at Camosun. More than 578 international students – up 120 since last year – registered between the college’s two campuses.

Middle ground for Cedar Hill food services Natalie North News staff

The Cedar Hill golf course’s money-losing restaurant will remain closed, and will be replaced with the light snack service currently operating on the ground floor. The decision by Saanich comes in the wake two independent public consultations and an analysis of the business over

the spring and early summer. “Operationally, it’s not going to work to have two types of food service,” said Doug Henderson, director of Saanich parks and recreation. “The idea is to try and capture the best that building can offer by moving the existing food service upstairs.” Some golfers will be pleased to use the upstairs area of the clubhouse, while oth-

Poacher kills deer with arrow in Saanich 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 that 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. 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 also 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. Anyone who witnesses poaching or has information on this incident can call Saanich police at 250475-4321. editor@saanichnews.com

Finding the ends of the Earth Royal B.C. Museum hosts a display of the world's oldest maps Edward Hill News staff

For European mapmakers in the late Middle Ages, the West Coast of Canada remained the last blank spot in the map, the world’s ultimate backwater. The B.C. Archive’s prized 1696 world map, printed for the future king of France, shows continents and oceans similar to what you might see on Google Maps – except the western half of North America, where California remains an island, and points north dissolve into nothing. “We knew the shape of Korea, Japan, China, even Australia, but they were just getting a handle on us,” said Lorne Hammond, curator of history at the Royal B.C. Museum. “At that time the limit of knowledge is us. The west coast of B.C. is an unknown, imagined landscape.” Penciling in that last gap of coastline helped usher in a picture of the modern world, at least from a European point of view. The long journey to get there is charted in a new exhibition at the RBCM, Envisioning the World: The First Printed Maps, 1472-1700. The museum is displaying 30 of the world's oldest printed maps, drawn from the private collection of Henry Wendt, a life-long collector of ancient maps, and in collaboration with the Sonoma County Museum. The collection charts the evolution of the known geographic world, and reveals how people reconciled biblical theology, scientific thought and the world beyond the horizon. “The first 300 years is the theologian view of the known world, and when they started to fill in the gaps,” Hammond says. “It was going from what was imagined, to religion, to myth and then to grid mathematics.” The oldest printed map in the world, printed in 1450s in Germany but originally crafted in 150 B.C., is akin to a pie chart – Europe, Africa and Asia, neatly divided and surrounded by oceans, and linked to Noah’s three sons. A number of world maps in the exhibit are based on the ancient work of Ptolemy, and found in the library of Alexandria during the Renaissance. A map printed in 1482 in Ulm, Germany, but conceived in 147 B.C., spans Africa, Europe and through the east to India and China. An early innovator, Ptolemy employed a sophisticated use of latitude and longitude, and projections of a spherical earth onto a plane. Noah’s three sons reappear on a map by Ptolemy printed in Germany in 1493, as do creatures and monsters thought to exist in unexplored parts of the world. A map from 1582 reveals a deeper understanding of the Earth's movement in space. At the north and south poles, cherubs push crank handles, suggesting the world spins on a axis. At the same time, it displays a popular,

U.S. map collector Henry Wendt (above) explains details from a world map designed by Ptolemy in 147 B.C., on a print from 1482. The map in is one of 30 on loan from Wendt’s personal collection for Envisioning the World: The First Printed Maps, 1472-1700 at the Royal B.C. Museum. (Left) A B.C.

church inspired mythology of the unknown world. “Cannibals and monsters show on the lefthand side, suggesting what might be found in the New World,” said Wendt, who gave the media a tour of his maps on Thursday. “If they’re not Christian, they must be monsters. It was basic logic (of the church)." Generations of sailors, explorers, merchants and missionaries helped cartographers shape the known world, and the invention of printing presses in the 1450s spread consistent and artistically appealing maps to major cities in Europe and around the Mediterranean Sea. Wendt was quick to avow that his maps are “all my children,” but admits a favourite child is a 1570 map of the world by Abraham Ortelius, printed in the world’s first modern atlas. Hand coloured, with exquisite detail, the map shows an enormous land mass in the southern hemisphere – labeled as Australia, an unknown land. This wasn’t based on surveys, but a kind of logic of the day. Scholars reckoned that for the Earth to rotate, it needed an equal amount of land in the southern hemisphere. “Maps were limits of the imagination. If the Earth was spinning, there must be a counterweight to keep it spinning,” Hammond noted. Wendt said rich and royal families typi-

cally purchased atlases and maps for educational purposes. “They put them on the library shelves, stacked other books on them, forgot about them, and that’s how they came to be preserved for us.” The B.C. Archive's 1696 world map from France (called the Sanson-Jaillot world map), which is included in the exhibition, shows a world just shy of discovering British Columbia, and one where maps are wielded as political tools. The French knew California wasn't an island, but printed it as such as a favour to Spain, which was in competition against England for colonial spoils. “(For Spain) it was better to have California as an island, than have vague boundaries," Hammond said. “You see precision, uncertainly and vagueness. It’s almost a modern map, but not quite there yet." The odd map out in the display, but no less intriguing, is the Peutinger Table, a comprehensive map of the Roman Empire, and the oldest road map in the world. Sixteen feet long with eight segments, the map shows in detail the rest points and distances to all corners of the empire, from Rome to England to Constantinople and to India. Finally, proof that all roads do lead to Rome. Envisioning the World is at the RBCM until Jan. 27. The maps are featured in an audio tour. editor@saanichnews.com

Reynolds raises $101K for Tour de Rock riders Natalie North News staff

Students and staff at Reynolds secondary have once again outdone themselves in their Cops for Cancer campaign, this year raising $101,066 toward sending kids with cancer to camp. On Friday afternoon, the school presented the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team with the cheque, raised through studentled fundraisers, including a massive head shave campaign across the school. “The mantras over the last couple of weeks have been ‘one cupcake at a time,’ ‘embrace the chaos’ and we really like to say, ‘hey, it’s Reynolds. That’s how we roll,’” said Dean NorrisJones, a cancer survivor who took on the role of hyping up the students to welcome the Tour de Rock team through their last stop on an Island-wide

bike tour. When the team rolled in, tour rider and Reynolds grad Niki Hodgkinson, a Saanich Police officer, attributed the school’s passion for the event to principal Alana Charlton who retires at the end of the school year. “We’ve been talking about Reynolds since training,” said Hodgkinson. “You symbolize the energy and the love and the community it takes to make this happen.” After covering the event at Reynolds in 2010 and 2011, Saanich News reporter Kyle Slavin decided to apply to join the Tour de Rock team and had his head shaved during the assembly. “Reynolds is the most unbelievable school,” Slavin said. “There’s no way to describe what Reynolds says or does because you’re so much more than a school; you’re a community unto yourself.” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Food services to move this winter Continued from Page A1

About 18 per cent of respondents indicated they’d like to see the return of the full restaurant. The surveys revealed that most of the respondents didn’t often use the full-service restaurant – either every few months or once or twice per year. People were also unhappy with the speed and secrecy surrounding council’s decision to close the restaurant in February this year. Last year, the golf course wracked up a $820,000 deficit. Of that, $420,000 was from the full-service restaurant, before it was closed. A Chemistry Consulting analysis doubted the full-service, restaurant, staffed with union employees, could return to profitability. Reopening it

entails “significant financial risk,” the report said. Saanich will shift existing licenced “grab and run” light food service to the upper level toward the end of this year or early in 2013 following completion of the deck restoration work. “There’s some level of confidence that the move that will be made to improve access to the upstairs area is going to breathe some new life and hopefully satisfy the desires of some of the folks who were involved in the process,” Henderson said. “We’re certainly going to do everything possible to make it as convenient as possible.” See the District of Saanich website saanich.ca under Community Engagement to see the full consultant reports.

Beef recalls due to potential e.coli contamination linked to the XL Foods meat processing plant have 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-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 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

OUR VIEW

Who’s the lame leader here? W

ith 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 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 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. 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 policy pronouncements from Dix in the near future. Waiting to lay out his platform, so as not to alienate voters, makes him just as lame as Clark appears to be.

y column on skills training skills shortage,” he told me. a couple of weeks ago gave In his speech to the recent short shrift to the NDP municipal convention, and again at position: tax the banks an NDP provincial council and hand out grants meeting, Dix zeroed in for women’s studies, on B.C.’s apprenticeship sociology and other system. Since the B.C. worthless pursuits, while Liberals took it from skilled jobs go begging. trade unions and set up a That’s a pretty crude Crown corporation called caricature, so I sat down the Industry Training with NDP leader Adrian Authority in 2004, the Dix in his legislature office completion rate for last week to get a better apprentices has fallen to sense of his thinking on 37 per cent, he said. the subject.

They will particularly. He meets frequently have “a voice,” along with business. with business people now, and Speaking to the NDP executive, his recent speeches emphasize Dix referred to Phil Hochstein, that every one of them talks about president of the non-union the growing shortage of skilled Independent Contractors and employees. Businesses’ Association, as the Dix credits Premier Christy Clark symbol of trades training decline. and jobs minister Pat Bell with Not surprisingly, Hochstein has a making some good moves recently, different take. announcing equipment upgrades The 37 per cent figure is for vocational programs around misleading, Hochstein said, because the province. He says it’s because under the ITA there are currently the NDP have been “pounding 32,000 apprentices in the system, away at them for eight months” twice as many as when it was about freezing advanced education union controlled. Many drop out spending in their March budget. in the first year, and Alberta claims Dix calls that a crucial mistake a better completion rate because and predicts the government will they don’t start counting until the reverse it soon. second year. “So I think, if we’re going to And when Dix touts Alberta’s have a mission for four years as a “mandatory” trade system, government, if we’re elected, this is Hochstein said he means returning the mission: to start to address the to a system where all work is

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

LETTERS Education, not more regulation Re: Sugar-heavy drinks eyed for regulation (News, Sept. 21) The Canadian Beverage Association (CBA) believes that education, not restrictions, will empower Canadians to make the food and beverage choices that are appropriate for them and their families. No single food or beverage causes weight gain or obesity – weight gain is an imbalance of calories consumed versus expended. It is misguided and inaccurate to suggest that targeting and restricting a single product, a product’s size or category will successfully impact the issue of obesity. According to recent research, 86 per cent of Canadians feel governments should be educating the public in order to change its behaviour, not taxing or restricting them and 92 per cent said when it comes to reducing obesity government, the food/beverage industry and health care professionals should all work together. It is also important to recognize that Canada isn’t the United States. According to Statistics

Canada, soft drink consumption has declined by 32 per cent over the past 12 years while the obesity rate has continued to rise. No other single fact illustrates the lack of relationship between weight gain and soft drinks as clearly as this statistic. It is through education rather than restrictions that Canadians will become empowered to make the food and beverage choices that are appropriate for them. In order to make these choices, Canadians need access to reliable and factual information and tools. Jim Goetz President Canadian Beverage Association

Wide-ranging impacts from brain injury study Re: Re-wiring the brain (News, Sept. 26) I am very glad to see this research into the brain being done because more and more people are surviving brain injuries and I feel doctors know little about this organ and how it affects the rest of the body’s functions. The brain controls how we

react to situations by putting in place the necessary measures it feels are needed to deal with whatever arises. What we may learn from this investigation is what does the brain need in order for it to function properly. If we learn this it could have an effect on other areas in medicine. Teaching people to recognize what triggers these reactions and how to respond to them is a good start. Now what kind of reactions takes place within our bodies? UBC did a study showing that anxiety caused HBP, and then we learn that HBP can cause kidney problems as well as heart problems, so you see one thing has an effect on another. Chronic disease management has various support groups to help those who have a chronic disease deal with their illness. For example we can have a group of diabetics which meet and discuss there problem with other diabetics. Who best to understand their condition than another person who has the same problem and understands when they say this is what is happening? This knowledge is gained through experience. What I am

going to suggest and I have been an advocate for is that we start a support group for those people who have experienced brain injuries. This can be a learning experience and benefit for everyone. Jim Bates Saanich

Manipulating kids a wrong road Re: Talk so they listen, listen so they talk (Saanich Family, Sept. 14) Were we supposed to laugh as columnist Susan Lundy smugly wrote how “successfully” she manipulated her children? I just felt sad. The book she probably took her title from (How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk, by Faber & Mazlish) is the opposite of manipulation, for it shows how to discuss issues with respect and caring. Children need to learn how to express their opinions safely (discussing meaningful pros and cons of any chosen item or activity) and interact honestly (discussing the effects of bullying in all its subtle and not-so-subtle modes.) As they practise expressing

their feelings safely with their parents, they learn to recognize whom to trust and how to identify ethics in the larger world. Whatever we model, our kids will earnestly imitate. When Ms. Lundy is an older woman, will she want her grown children using this same disrespectful technique on her? As parents, we should be open to learning from our kids as well as having our kids learn from us. If we run along that same twoway street, when a mother picks up a movie that interests her, there’s more than a 50-50 chance that her kids won’t give it (or her) “the up-turned nose.” And if they do, there’s an opportunity for learning to take place.

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.

Victoria loses bid for Junos Roszan Holmen News staff

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.

“We introduced some key innovations to make Camosun more accessible to international students and more competitive globally,” said Geoff Wilmshurst, director of Camosun International. The boost at Camosun has allowed the college to increase the number of ESL sections, re-hire four previously laid-off instructors and decrease domestic wait lists, added Tom Roemer, vice president of strategic development. “International students make it possible for us to expand domestic student capacity at a time when we face serious fiscal pressures,” said Roemer. Roemer estimates each international student infuses about $30,000 into the local economy annually, At UVic, gains in international enrolment have been modest in light of the institution’s overall registration of about 20,000 students. UVic

counted an increase of 136 full-time equivalent students compared to the fall of 2011, bringing the university’s international total to 1,036 students. But UVic expects more to come in the near future. This year the school implemented a pathway program that allows ESL students to complete for-credit courses at the same time as fulfilling their language requirements on campus. With 77 per cent of the student population at UVic hailing from outside of Greater Victoria, the university is already equipped with ample new student transition programming easily adapted to fit the needs of international students, said Carolyn Russell, director of student recruitment at UVic. “There’s great opportunity for us to work together as a city in attracting students to our system,” Russell said. “We all work together because it has the potential to be seamless: come do high school, go to the college and transfer to university.”

Election spending limits rejected again B.C. Liberals won’t appeal ruling Tom Fletcher Black Press

FREE CONSULTATION!

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 - SAANICH

The B.C. Court of Appeal

has rejected a second attempt by the B.C. Liberal government to restrict thirdparty 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 government 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 PostSecondary Educators originally challenged the spending restrictions in court.

Crisis of faith wracks shrinking United Church

And how do you measure it?

Social activist faith sees steep decline in membership in Canada

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.

Tim Collins News staff

What does it mean to be a church in the 21st century? It’s a question addressed during a Thanksgiving Day visit to Oak Bay United Church by the Right Rev. Gary Paterson. For the newly elected Moderator of The United Church of Canada, the timing of the question couldn’t be more appropriate. Paterson and the entire United Church is being challenged by a fractious membership, a rise in fundamentalism across North America and an erosion in membership. At slightly less than a half-million members nationwide, United Church is about half of what it was 40 years ago, and those numbers continue to decline. That decline has been linked, by some, to the church’s strategy of blurring the lines between religion and social conscience. The United Church has led the way in taking positions on a number of social issues, including the ordination of women and homosexuals, the environment, homelessness and the treatment of prisoners, among other human rights issues. The election of Paterson as Moderator is, in itself, a statement of the socially progressive nature of the church. He is the first openly gay man to serve in that position. Paterson said the church has to reach out to the growing cohort of Canadians who claim to be “spiritual, but not religious.” “What are the practices that sustain and shape our faith?” asked Paterson. “How can the church model a different kind of community so that people want to be a part of that?” It’s a question that David Ewart, a retired United Church minister, addresses regularly in his blogs. Ewart stops short of blaming social activism of the United Church for the decline in membership and acknowledges that it is a problem faced by almost every mainstream Christian church. He maintains that the United Church’s course will see a further halving of membership by 2025. Paterson recognizes the challenge but insists that the church is on the right track. He said that churches have a responsibility to address social issues and to put them within the context of Christian faith. In the absence of that approach, he said, the church will ultimately lose its relevance. “Jesus spoke out about social issues,” said Paterson. “He invited tax collectors and others who had been shunned to share his table. He drove money lenders from the temple. What is that if not social activism?” Rev. Keith Howard, one of the ministry team at Oak Bay United Church, says that Paterson’s approach matches the approach of the congregation. Howard said that his congregation is trying to make connections through a flexible schedules and innovative ideas for services and by ensuring that newcomers, especially those with children, are made to feel comfortable and included. “A survey … I think it was in 2010, showed that people between 30 and 45 felt that traditional churches were judgmental, arrogant, and unwilling to listen. We don’t want to be any of those things,” Howard said.

Exactly how much is an inch of water?

The Right Rev. Gary Paterson, the newly elected Moderator of The United Church of Canada, spoke in Oak Bay last weekend.

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

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.

Nature K launches in Colwood Capital Regional District

Charla Huber News staff

At five years old Eli Thuot already knows what he wants to be – a nature explorer. Following his bliss, Eli is just one of the 22 students in the nature kindergarten program at Sangster elementary school, the first school in B.C. offering the program. Every morning Eli and his classmates head to the neighbouring forest at Royal Roads University. The young boy beams with excitement as he explains his new nature kit – a pencil, paper and a magnifying glass – to his parents. “We do lots of exploring,” he said. Wearing rain gear and a special backpack with emergency tools such as a whistle, emergency blanket and a snack, Eli is ready to explore. “We know students learn in different ways,” said Sangster principal Maureen Laureen. “The forests, ocean and streams, they are your classroom and they will reveal tremendous things for you.” Safety plays a key role in the course and before the children set out in the forest, safety issues are addressed. “The children have adapted really well,” Laureen said.

Applications/Nominations for Membership Water Advisory Committee The Capital Regional District (CRD) invites applications/ nominations from residents interested in sitting on the Water Advisory Committee to provide advice on water supply, water quality, the stewardship of the lands held by the CRD for water supply purposes and water conservation measures. There are vacancies for members representing Fish Habitat, Resident/ Ratepayers Associations, and Other organizations. Meetings are held at 9 a.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at CRD Integrated Water Services office, 479 Island Highway, Victoria, BC. Appointments will be for a two (2) year term commencing January 2013. Send us a one-page summary telling about yourself, your area of expertise, which interest group you represent and why you would like to serve on the committee. Deadline for receipt of applications is November 2, 2012. For a copy of the Terms of Reference contact CRD at the address below or visit our website: www.crd.bc.ca/water/administration/ advisorycommittee.htm. Charla Huber/News staff

Eli Thuot, 5, wants to be a nature explorer when he grows up. He is getting a start in nature kindergarten at Sangster elementary. While the mornings are dedicated for outdoors, in the afternoon the students return to the typical classroom environment. The school was able to raise more than $100,000 in

grants to help make to program a reality. Grants were used to cover expenses such as providing rain gear and sunglasses to the students and cover extra staffing costs. This is a two-year pilot

project. The original “forest preschools” concept emerged in Sweden decades ago, and has been used in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and a few places in Canada. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Stolen vehicle rams VicPD cruiser Daniel Palmer News staff

Victoria police nabbed the driver of a stolen Chevrolet Cavalier after officers placed a fake drug order to lead them to the accused. At 8 a.m. on Oct. 1, a VicPD officer identified a stolen vehicle at Bridge Street and Gorge Road E. The vehicle was followed through downtown until back-up units arrived. Officers then attempted to box in the Cavalier at the intersection of Vancouver and Balmoral streets, but the driver reversed into a police cruiser and escaped.

Police did not pursue the vehicle in the interest of public safety, but soon discovered the female passenger was a known drug dealer. “By doing checks on her (in police databases), officers discovered she had a number associated to her,” Const. Mike Russell said. The officers ordered drugs from the woman and arranged to meet in Vic West. She then led police on a foot chase to an apartment in the 400-block of Catherine St. Police gained access to the suite and found the woman and the driver of the stolen vehicle hiding under blankets in the bedroom.

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 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

Sex-worker support centre struggles to make ends meet Change to government funding model tough on PEERS

DO YOU WANT ALL KIDS TO HAVE A GOOD START? WE DO TOO.

Daniel Palmer News staff

PEERS Victoria is fighting hard to keep its doors open to some of the Capital Region’s most vulnerable people. In the past three years, the non-profit organization, which helps more than 500 sex workers each year, has seen its monthly provincial funding shrivel from $32,000 to $6,000. “Our bare-bones budget is $16,000 a month, but we’re continuing to operate on our $6,000 funding because we believe there will be a way to get through this,” said PEERS executive director Marion Little. The funding shortage is a result of the provincial government’s shift in April from annual grants to a fee-for-service system, where non-profits must apply for individual program grants and register their users in an integrated system. “We’re not willing to hustle our clients. People can come through our door and receive unconditional welcome,” Little said. “They don’t need to give us their name or social insurance number and can get a hot meal, see a doctor, shower and

But with a reduction in staff hours, that model has been postponed due to a lack of supervision, Little said. “We work with street-involved people, as well as those who are working at escort agencies, ensuring they have access to medical care and can ask the questions they need to ask.” The organization delivers programs ranging from computer literacy courses to abuse and trauma workshops. Little spoke at a recent

Esquimalt council meeting and successfully convinced councillors to include PEERS in its annual list of permissive tax exemptions, after the non-profit missed the application deadline. “A tax exemption is about $10,000 a year to us. That’s a big deal,” she said. Council was sympathetic to Little, who explained 60 to 70 per cent of PEERS users live in Esquimalt, while the majority of other users live along the township’s boundaries. Council approved permissive tax exemptions for 14 organizations including PEERS. dpalmer@vicnews.com
