Pioneer Forest advocates threaten legal action I GROUP CLAIMS urban forest must remain parkland or be handed back to the province. BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Friends of Pioneer Forest say it will challenge the City of Nanaimo and Nanaimo school district in court if officials don’t recognize a provincial cabinet order they say requires the forest to be used as a park or be returned to the province. The organization says it has found evidence that the 3.2-hectare urban forest was wrongly relieved of its park designation in 1997 when the city sold it to the school board for about $800,000. It says a deputy minister issued the school board a letter then stating the park restriction had been removed, but argue that the letter “had no statutory authority or legal standing.” The school board then filed the letter with the Land Title Office in Victoria, which “wrongly removed the park restriction from the Pioneer Forest property.” Friends of Pioneer Park chairman Mike McCammon said the organization wants the city and school board to correct past mistakes. “Our goal is the long-term protection of Pioneer Forest as a park,” said McCammon. “We trust our elected city councillors and school trustees will see the wisdom of righting the wrongs of the past and take steps to ensure Pioneer Forest is properly protected for future generations.” In May, while performing its asset management assessment, the school district notified the city that a recent overhaul of the city’s zoning designations wrongly zoned Pioneer Forest with an open parks and spaces designation instead of a neighbourhood designation. That request prompted the Friends of the Pioneer Forest to form as residents became worried the property, under the neighbourhood designation, could become open to development. Nanaimo city council passed

the first two readings, but pulled the issue from a public hearing in June due to confusion surrounding the property. Jamie Brennan, Nanaimo school board chairman, said the land is designated neighbourhood, is owned by the school board and that the interests of the school board’s students will be put first. “Our main goal is to realize as much from that property as we can for the school district. But that isn’t to say that we’re not agreeable to that piece of land reverting to parkland under different ownership,” said Brennan. “In the city’s plan they called it a park because, I guess, in their view there were people using it as such. So we asked the city to correct it and that’s when the city blinked, I guess you’d say, because of the opposition from the neighbourhood.” Brennan added that legal action by Friends of Pioneer Park would be cumbersome for all parties. “It’s up to them. For us it’s a distraction,” he said. “We don’t want this to become a legal battle because the only people who benefit from that are lawyers, not kids, and

our first interest is our kids.” Friends of Pioneer Forest secured environmental lawyer Patrick Canning who said the evidence he has found says the land, under past agreements, should only be used as parkland. “Order in Council 1035/1983 is all the evidence anyone needs to know with certainty that Pioneer Forest is required to be used as a park or for recreation purposes only,” said Canning. “Otherwise it reverts to the province. The city and school district needed cabinet approval to remove the park restriction, but cabinet never gave that approval.” In 1984 the province sold all of May Bennett Pioneer Park to the city for $1 under the condition the property be used for public recreation. In 1997 the city sold Pioneer Forest to the school district which considered building an elementary school on the site, but later deemed it unnecessary. Friends of Pioneer Forest say the currently in-force OIC 1035/1983 requires Pioneer Forest property to be “limited to

the specific purpose of use as a park and recreation and subject to reversion if not so used”. The site is mostly forested and is also used as one of the city’s designated off-leash dog parks. “We don’t own parks and any attempt by any group to confiscate that piece of land would be unwelcome by the school district,” said Brennan. “We own it and we don’t foresee we’ll be needing it for a school site in the future so for us it’s a matter of how can we realize some benefit from this property for our students. For the city it’s probably more political than for us and that’s for them to deal with, but we’re hoping we can work out an agreement with them.” The school board is in discussions with the city over a number of properties to erase confusion over titles, though Brennan added Pioneer Forest’s ownership and title is clear. Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan said the city is talking to the school board to come up with a solution that addresses the concerns of all parties. He said all options are on the table, including a possible swap of land between the city and school board. “If we have property we can exchange, that’s what we’re exploring. We understand the community’s desire to retain that as a park and the city is working with that view in mind, to keep it as a park,” said Ruttan, adding he felt it was premature for a citizen organization to threaten legal action. “But at the same time it’s important to remember it’s not the city’s property. It was sold legally to the school board and the solution will come from them.” Brennan said the school board won’t allow the deadlines of outside interests to interfere with the process. “Any artificial deadline that this group presents are really simply just that based on their own view of things,” he said. “We’re hopeful we’ll have a successful agreement with the city ... that will serve the best interest of both the City of Nanaimo citizens but also the students of our school district.” reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Fire crews kept busy VICTORIA EXPRESS BUS BY CHRIS BUSH

THE NEWS BULLETIN

More than a dozen fires kept Nanaimo firefighters and investigators on the run over Thanksgiving weekend. A kitchen fire at Moxie’s Grill and Bar in north Nanaimo that ignited shortly before 11:30 p.m. Monday has shut down the restaurant for a few days. Heat from the fire triggered the building’s sprinkler system, which snuffed out the flames, but flooded the kitchen. Rick Kwasnecha, fire prevention officer investigating that fire, said water, about 15-20 centimetres deep, flowed out the back door of the restaurant when firefighters arrived. “There was quite a bit of smoke damage to the kitchen area, but the sprinkler system activated and put the fire out,� Kwasnecha said. The restaurant had closed and staff had gone home when the fire ignited. What caused the blaze remains under investigation, but Kwasnecha said as of Tuesday morning he had ruled out causes due to the kitchen’s operation, appliance malfunctions, electrical defects and smoking. “It’s kind of a head-scratcher,� Kwasnecha said. “It’s so far, undetermined. It could have been a chemical reaction from cleaning products, rags, things like that. It had nothing to do with the kitchen operation itself. It just happened to be in that area.�

Frank Naccarato, restaurant owner, said the drainage system in the kitchen’s floor and quick mop up by a restoration company kept flood damage to a minimum, but the business will be closed until at least Friday (Oct. 12) while crews clean out the restaurant and discard smoke damaged items. Meanwhile, a blaze that destroyed a portion of the back deck of a house in the 2300 block of Brackenwood Place shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday was caused by a barbecue. Dave Leigh, fire prevention officer, said a charcoal briquette barbecue triggered the fire when one leg of the unit failed and it toppled over onto the wooden deck. Firefighters managed to keep the flames from damaging the house and no one was injured. And five people are in temporary lodging after a fire in a basement storage area caused smoke damage throughout their home in the 5200 block of Lost Lake Road Saturday. The fire, which broke out in a crawlspace shortly after 9 p.m., was confined to the area, said Ennis Mond, Nanaimo Fire Rescue fire prevention officer. “But there was heavy smoke throughout the whole house,� he said. Other calls for service over the long weekend included a vehicle fire on Stewart Avenue, three bark mulch fires, one fire in a planter, a garbage can fire and one campfire.

Commuter crunch Paramedics carry the driver of a pickup to a gurney after her vehicle collided with a school bus on Townsite Road at Waddington Road Tuesday at about 3 p.m. Police said the truck was hit by the bus when the truck turned right from Waddington Road onto Townsite Road. The woman and her 10-year-old daughter were shaken up by the accident and taken to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. The bus was not carrying passengers and its driver was not injured. Both vehicles sustained damage and charges are pending against the woman driving the truck.

Police seek slapping victim Nanaimo RCMP are investigating an incident from Tuesday morning when a female jogger was slapped on her buttocks by a male while she was out jogging near the intersection of Wellington and Jingle Pot roads. Police said the woman ran into the Nanaimo Jim Pattison Hyundai dealership at about 9:30 a.m. and told an employee a man slapped her. She then pointed toward where she last saw the suspect who was still standing near the intersection where the incident allegedly occurred.

The woman left and the employee went outside, called 911 and started following the suspect. Mounties with a police service dog responded and identified a person of interest about 30 minutes later in the Labieux Road area. Police spoke with the suspect, but had insufficient grounds to make an arrest. The suspect is described as a Caucasian in his mid 20s, approximately six- feet tall with a shaved head. He was wearing a blue, red and green sweater with red and black pants.

“We also need to speak with the jogger. She left the area without providing her name and did not contact the detachment later in the day to follow up,” said Const. Gary O’Brien. “She is a white female, 30-40 years of age with straight blonde hair. She was wearing black yoga pants and a black top.” Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-7542345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers. com.

Homeless week raises awareness BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

It’s Homelessness Action Week in B.C. (Oct. 7-13) and while nothing specific is planned in Nanaimo to mark the occasion, advocates say the week is important for raising awareness about the issue. John Horn, the city’s social planner, said in previous years, the Nanaimo Working Group on Homelessness has commemorated the week by organizing events such as bringing a number of services for the homeless into Maffeo Sutton Park or doing a homeless count, but this year the group has taken a break. With all of the recent news coverage and community dialogue about the city’s Housing First and Harm Reduction Plan and plans for building supportive housing units, the group feels that residents are well aware of the issue, he said. “There are probably not many

alleviate it, the better.” Various groups in the city are working hard on the issue and the city’s Housing First and Harm Reduction Plan aims to cut back on the number of chronically homeless individuals to next to nothing once all supportive housing facilities are built, said Fuller. The 36-unit supportive housing project on Wesley Street is scheduled to open shortly and he estimates that about half of the roughly 35 chronically homeless people in Nanaimo will be housed here, with the remainder of the occupants coming from sub-standard living situations. H o u s i n g h i g h l i g h t s fo r Nanaimo include the New Hope Centre, which opened in 2007 to provide transitional housing for the homeless or those at risk of being homeless, and Salish Lelum, 18 supportive apartments for Aboriginal youth and elders that opened in 2011.

in the community who aren’t aware of the issue,” said Horn. While the working group is not doing anything for the week and decided to focus on its annual Thanksgiving dinner last weekend, Homelessness Action Week signals to communities that homelessness is a common problem. “We’re all in this together as Canadians and no community is free of homelessness issues,” said Horn. Gord Fuller, chairman of the Nanaimo 7-10 Club Society, said the week is about educating people about the benefits of programs that help combat homelessness. “The more people become aware, the better able they are to recognize that this is a problem we need to work towards eliminating,” he said. “It’s a huge problem not just in B.C. but across Canada and the more people know about it, and the steps being taken to

EDITORIAL

Proper health trumps p prices p The massive recall of beef that emerged from a Brooks, Alta. processing plant should cause people to pause and think about the food chain, and how demands for low prices may have a longterm effect that goes far beyond this recall. B.C. farmers and ranchers produce a large supply of cattle for the meat market each year. But for the most part, they are now shipped off to huge feed lots on the Prairies for a final fattening up before being butchered. A few farmers and ranchers raise some cattle to full size and sell meat to customers or specialty butcher shops directly. In virtually all cases, this meat is more expensive – but comes with the assurance that the final consumer knows just where the meat originated and how it has been handled. Almost every single large grocery retailer buys beef from a handful of huge plants, such as the Brooks facility. It’s estimated that up to 40 per cent of the beef sold in B.C. comes from that plant. That’s why the recall list is such a long one. Grocery chains today have to offer low prices to get customers in the door, and meat prices are among the most closelywatched. Getting good value for your dollar has never been more important. But as details about the recall emerge, it seems clear that the volume of cattle moving through the Brooks plant and the sheer difficulty in keeping E. coli infections under control are major factors in this serious health issue. And this is serious. It’s not just ground beef that has been affected, but steaks and roasts. These cuts have rarely been reported as being infection risks in the past. Hopefully out of all this will come a demand by meat eaters for better information about the food they eat.

“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

TTainted beef raises concerns To the Editor, How can dangerous food contamination happen in the 21st century? Food processors and products are supposed to be tested regularly. Why not constant testing? One assumes those test results are diligently analyzed before the products get distributed to the public.

If not, why not? Why does it take days/weeks for our food safety regulators to even respond, let alone act, when alerted? Especially when alerted by other countries. Why aren’t all Canadian cattle destined as food beef vaccinated for E. coli and other bacteria? Why aren’t citizens

immediately alerted to contamination? Why does it take weeks to find out which distributors and retailers sold the contaminated products? Why aren’t they required to be alerted immediately and ordered to halt further sale? Given modern marketing knowledge of purchasers,

why aren’t retailers required to use their databases to directly contact the known purchasers and told not to use the product? Why not require media advertising or even signs in their stores? Why aren’t those causing contamination not prosecuted? Why is there no full compensation

for those harmed required of those who caused the harm? I think it is long overdue for serious answers to these questions. So, to our elected representatives in Parliament, supposedly a ‘responsible government,’ let’s have those answers now. Gary Korpan Nanaimo

Readers respond: Feedback on news items Gasoline costs bad for shops To the Editor, Re: Gas prices leave little to be thankful f , Letters, Oct. 6: for For years Nanaimo has been held at ransom with over-inflated fuel prices. We complain and complain about it, but we never seem to apply enough pressure on the local gas merchants to change their price-gouging ways. They tell us they have no choice, they’re forced to raise their prices and other standard, lame excuses. There is never any legitimate reasons. I have got into the habit of buying my fuel in the Ladysmith/ Duncan areas because they don’t raise fuel prices at the drop of a hat and they price fuel fairly, unlike in Nanaimo. I’m a firm believer in supporting local business, but as a consumer it has become increasingly necessary to stretch my dollars further. I have found the businesses in Ladysmith and Duncan to be more deserving of my dollars. The business

owners in those areas seem to understand how to get the customers and keep them. How does this help our local economy? Greed prevails over intelligence with local fuel suppliers and they can’t get it into their heads they aren’t helping the local economy. If consumers can buy the same products further south on the Island – and have access to lower fuel prices – why would they pay $137.9 a litre for gas in Nanaimo? The only way I see fairer gas prices coming to Nanaimo is by boycotting local fuel stations whenever possible and local business apply pressure due to lack of sales in their stores. The price will drop when there are large amounts of unsold gasoline in the supply tanks in the ground. D. Wristen Nanaimo

BLE UNBEATAS! PRICE E TH BEST OF ! YEAR

Price excuses just don’t fly To the Editor, Re: Gas prices leave little to be thankful for, Letters, Oct. 6. Further to the letter regarding Nanaimo prices going up to $1.37 per litre overnight. I had to take a trip to Victoria on Thursday and was stunned at what I saw. Ladysmith was $1.28/ l, Victoria was $1.23/l and Duncan was $1.18/l. I never want to hear another lie from the oil companies about the cost of distribution. If we were still buying gas by the gallon, they wouldn’t dare bump the price the way they do. Last week, the price jumped from $1.25/l to $1.37/l overnight – that’s the same as $0.54/gal and the difference between here and Duncan, would be

$0.85. People would scream like crazy if they saw that kind of increase. The distributor for Nanaimo should be charged with theft, plain and simple. There is no excuse to have such a discrepancy in prices. P.D. Good Nanaimo

Ferry system won’t last long To the Editor, Re: Gabriola ferry proposals flawed, Letters, Oct 4. I totally agree with Al Strano that moving the Gabriola Island ferry terminal from downtown Nanaimo to Duke Point is currently a bad idea, for the reasons he outlined. But what about the future? Is he and others travelling to/from Gabriola prepared to indefinitely absorb rapidly rising ferry fares for a continued reduction in service, or does he expect taxpayers to build a bridge to the island? What my article proposed is that in the future we shift away from the private automobile

and move toward an integrated (seamless) system that results in actual cost savings, reduced pollution, greater efficiencies, better (physical and emotional) health outcomes and stronger social connections, reducing both crime and taxes along the way. For the few (like me) who will still need to take a motor vehicle to/from the island, the infrastructure currently exists to accomplish this. For the many who will be happy to jump on to a new and faster foot/bicycle ferry, transfer to efficient transit (bus, train, sea-plane, taxi, fast ferry to downtown Vancouver, etc.) or grab a car share vehicle, the existing Gabriola terminal area will work very well. The past does not dictate the future. Good thing, as we cannot continue with the existing ways of moving people around. Neither the economy nor the ecology will permit it. Ian Gartshore Nanaimo

Energy plan must be about more than energy Feeding our energy appetite is top of mind for many people these days. Some argue we should get coal, oil and gas out of the ground as quickly as possible, build more pipelines and make as much money as we can selling it here and abroad. Their priorities are the economy and meeting short-term energy needs so we can live the lives to which we’ve become accustomed.

If we pollute the air, water and soil that keep us alive and well, and destroy the biodiversity that allows natural systems to function, no amount of money will save us. While rushing to exploit our valuable and diminishing fossil fuels, Canada’s government is simultaneously “streamlining”

environmental regulations and review processes, cutting scientific staff and departments and limiting public debate on projects that could irreparably damage our rich natural heritage. Some provinces are attempting to water down hardwon environmental laws, like endangered species legislation, that act as a critical hedge against environmental

degradation. The federal government is also neglecting its legal obligations to protect species at risk. Ecojustice, on behalf of five conservation groups including the David Suzuki Foundation, recently launched a lawsuit to challenge the government’s multi-year delays in producing recovery strategies for species that would be affected by the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway project. If we don’t slow down and try to look at ways out of the mess, energy issues will continue to increase, like the Hydra of Greek mythology. With pipelines, the main issue is rapid tar sands expansion. But other massive energy projects are also coming down the pipe – from huge dams, like the Site C in northern B.C., to proposed drilling for oil and gas in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Arctic. To what end? Not only are fossil fuel companies making record profits, they’re being subsidized by Canadian taxpayers to the tune of $1.4 billion a year. Instead of giving them money, shouldn’t we be compelling them to put at least a small portion of their enormous profits into reducing the massive greenhouse gas emissions they cause? A large part of the problem is that we are increasing our fossil-fuelled ambitions at breakneck speed in the absence of a national energy strategy. No one seems to know where we’re going, but the end of the road is looming, and it might lead to a steep drop. We’re already harming

precious ecosystems and are ready to put even more at risk without having an idea of the often irreplaceable value they represent. With climate change and its impacts, along with deforestation, pollution and increasing urbanization, we’re condemning millions of people to lives of poor health, desperation and even death. Still, we’ve also created much that is good. We have political systems that encourage public debate and access to information. There are politicians and industry leaders who have joined countless citizens, First Nations, and environmental, labour and socialjustice organizations to question current policies and actions. We have science, medicine and technology that have allowed many of us to live longer. We need to find ways to reconcile our existence with the limits of our finite planet. What Canada really needs in the short term is a national energy strategy – one that goes beyond fracking and tar sands and pipelines to take into account these many other factors, including wiser use of fossil fuels. It must help us make the transition from our wasteful addiction to polluting and ever-diminishing fossil fuels to conservation and renewable energy. Globally, we need to shift from the outdated 20th-century notion of measuring progress with gross domestic product to a development paradigm that takes into account wellbeing and happiness, and that accounts for nature’s valuable services.

The weather was cool, but the enthusiasm warm, as 26 members of the Nanaimo Paddlers Club launched their kayaks and canoes to spruce up the shores of Newcastle Island. Their mission was to rid the shoreline of every piece of flotsam and debris that had washed up over the summer and to return the Island to as pristine a condition as possible, now that boaters, campers and hikers have left for the season. Five teams of paddlers spread out around the island Saturday, looking for anything that wasn’t of natural origin, while two five-metre skiffs cruised the shores waiting for radio calls from the volunteers to come in and take away their piles of garbage. The paddlers found a number of large pieces of Styrofoam and four

tires, which filled a pick-up truck, while garbage bags of other waste accumulated quickly, as well as what appeared to be a heavy iron ramp from a boat trailer. Also found were large pieces of a car interior with the upholstery still attached to the vinyl, a brand new work boot, one new lady’s pump, and a single sneaker and sandals. There were plastic and glass bottles, pieces of broken glass, plastic, food wrappers and metres of rope. The total amount of garbage collected weighed in at 370 kilograms. “It was evident that we collected less garbage this year than last,” said Liz Van Heerwaarden, cleanup organizer. “We hope it is a sign that people are becoming more environmentally aware and are picking up after themselves.”

Nanaimo Cultural Plan Community Visioning Forum October 16, 7-9:30 pm Beban Park Social Center The City of Nanaimo invites you to participate in the cultural planning process to make Nanaimo a more vibrant and creative city. Your feedback and ideas will be invaluable in making the new Nanaimo Cultural Plan reflect who we are as a city and what kind of a creative city we want to be in the future. We will present the new cultural resources inventory and map. There will be opportunity for discussions regarding our key cultural assets, guiding principles for the plan and our vision for the future. Sandra Thomson, Development Consultant, will be facilitating the feedback session. Nanaimo has embraced “Cultural Vitality” as one of the 4 pillars of sustainability in its Corporate Strategic Plan. To this end we are embarking on a municipal cultural planning process to leverage local cultural assets and resources for supporting economic prosperity and overall creative community building. Cultural is about who we are as a people - our history, our values, and is central to our identity. It fosters innovation, collaboration and community partnerships. Culture is what makes our city look and feel the way it does. Imagine a Nanaimo that is vibrant and interesting, welcoming and liveable ... a community that is exactly what all our residents have envisioned and worked together to create. A place where anyone in the world would love to live or visit. Your Nanaimo - A place to be proud of! The City of Nanaimo recognizes the growing importance of the role played by creativity, innovation, arts and culture and quality of place, for a healthy vibrant community.

PUBLIC WORKS - CITY OF NANAIMO - 250-758-5222 MESSAGE TO PROPERTY OWNERS RE: MAINTENANCE OF PRIVATE/DRAINAGE SYSTEMS Before winter rainstorms arrive is the time for homeowners to check gutters, downspouts and perimeter drains around the house to ensure everything is working properly. 1.

Inbrief

A lady I know got a cheque on Wednesday, and drank it all away by Friday. This happens, and it’s never a good thing. Understanding why is important; planning how to avoid drinking is important; accepting responsibility is important. The MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT FALLING OFF THE WAGON IS TO GET BACK ON IT. Falling down happens to two-thirds of people trying to quit. What you do the next day is vital to the chances of success. Call someone, talk to someone, ask for help. With me, that help is always available if you want it. If you need to talk, call 250-619-9839 and ask for help.

Burlesque performer heats up Port Theatre Broadway diva seduces audience members with her provocative shimmies and shakes BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Q

uinn Lemley likes to leave something to the imagination. She likes to make the stage sizzle with sexuality with her girls Grace (Erin McGrath) and Raz (Sara Durinich). She’s worked hard to master the art of the tease. It can be as simple as removing a feather boa or showing a leg. She studied women who pioneered the art form – women like May West and Gypsy Rose Lee. “These women were really groundbreaking women who broke the rules and the glass ceiling with their art,” said Lemley. “They did it with intelligence and wit and humour.” Lemley celebrates the art of tease. She said women like Rita Hayworth did it with glamour, sometimes only removing a glove to seduce the watcher. “All she does is take off one glove but it is so provocative and sexy,” said Lemley. Lemley brings her show Burlesque to Broadway to the Port Theatre Saturday (Oct. 13) for a 7:30 p.m. performance. Her show fills the stage with sequins, feathers, fans, big band tunes and Broadway hits. It takes the audience into the world of The Ziegfeld Follies and classic Broadway. It includes songs such as Hey Big Spender, Ten Cents a Dance, Let Me Entertain You, Bang Bang and M She’s a Lady. It’s not a typical burlesque because it’s not about exposing flesh but teasing the audience, said Lemley. “We are like a Cadillac show. It is not a typical burlesque,” said Lem-

ley. “It’s so dynamic. It’s one show stopping number after another. It’s so much fun to be with the audience.” The performer was introduced to the glamour of Broadway and burlesque early on. While growing up in Indiana she used to visit her grandmother who lived right beside her. The two would watch movies featuring Rita Hayworth and other actresses of that era. They would also watch the Carol Burnett Show and Sonny and Cher. Her journey into the world of burlesque and Broadway intensified after she starred as Rita Hayworth in The Heat is On. She decided to gather a creative team for her show Burlesque to Broadway, which includes stories, jokes and music. The show celebrates the glamour and glitz and the female figure. “The show is really a celebration of women and all who love them,” said Lemley. During the performance Lemley and her girls love to interact with the audience. She said some audience members may find themselves on stage to participate in the show. She encourages people to dress up in the glamour of the Broadway era and to have fun. Lemley said she’s thrilled to be visiting Nanaimo to perform her show. For more information on Burlesque to Broadway please go to www.burlesquetobroadway.com. Burlesque to Broadway shows at the Port Theatre Saturday (Oct.13) at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $60 or $55 for members and groups and are available at the Port Theatre office, located at 125 Front St., online at www.porttheatre.com or by calling 250-754-8550.

Gogo nabs award for Soul Bender BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo blues musician David Gogo won Blues Recording of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards last month. Gogo said he didn’t expect to win because he’s been in the running before for an award for his album Soul Bender. It was previously nominated for Best

Blues Album of the Year from the Juno Awards. “I was thrilled. I was just pleased,” said Gogo. “It was kind of funny because I didn’t have a speech prepared.” Luckily the awards were announced two at a time so as the other recipient accepted their award he was busy crafting his speech. Soul Bender was created in the Nanaimo Lois Lane Studios.

Gogo worked with Rick Salt to perfect the album, which is a mixture of original songs and covers. It includes a blues version of Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel. In the music business Gogo said he always gets asked ‘what have you done lately?’. Yet, even though Soul Bender was released last year people are still talking about it. ◆ See ‘CHRISTMAS’ /23

Nanaimo musician David Gogo has created an album for the holiday season and will perform at the Nanaimo Entertainment Centre Dec. 1.

Christmas album in the works

◆ From /20 “It’s had a pretty good life,” he said. “It’s got the best reviews of my career.” Gogo said when he plays blues live he connects with the audience and shares his humour. On an album he doesn’t have that opportunity. However, with Soul Bender, at the Nanaimo Lois Lane Studios the musicians interacted with each other to capture “the live off the floor” flavour, he said. As a blues performer Gogo travels extensively and those experiences are translated into his songs. “Experience really factors in to the music, especially lyrically,” he said.

Gogo is planning to release a Christmas album this year, Christmas with the Blues. The album highlights blues songs from the 50s and 60s. The only traditional Christmas song on the album is an instrumental version of The Little Drummer Boy. “It’s a real kind of traditional blues album, a little laid back than I usually do,” said Gogo. “It’s my first real authentic blues album from beginning to end.” He’ll perform at the newly renovated Nanaimo Entertainment Centre, the old Caprice Theatre, on Dec. 1. The show details are currently being nailed down. reporter3@nanaimobulletin.com

The long weekend, good weather and word of mouth helped make the event so successful, said race director Normon Thibault. “It seems to be still growing,� he said. “It’s a momentum thing – the people that have come out become advocates for the series and bring more people out.� The main-event races were highly competitive, with Victoria’s Rob Britton finishing atop a field of more than 30 riders in the expert men’s division and Dawn Anderson, also of Victoria, holding off the competition to win the expert women’s race by just 22 seconds. Nanaimo’s Wendy Simms was third in that race, 36 seconds off the pace. Local rider Ian Smith won the masters men’s race, besting a field of over 50 riders. Other winners include: Parker Bloom, Victoria, intermediate men; Victoria Boyd, Nanaimo, intermediate women; Damian Parlee, Comox, beginner men; Sarah Clarke, Victoria, be ginner women. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Clippers brace for style clash I BCHL TEAM to face Alberni Valley squad. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Kelly Guest of Victoria dismounts his bike to get through the sand trap area of the course at the Kona Kup cyclocross race at Bowen Park on Monday afternoon. Guest placed third in the expert men’s division of the Cross on the Rock series stop.

For the Nanaimo Clippers to win their next game, they might need to dictate the style of play. The city’s B.C. Hockey League team (4-3-0-1) plays three games this coming weekend, starting with a home-andhome set Friday (Oct. 12) and Saturday against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (6-4-0-1). The Bulldogs are first in the BCHL in goals for (43) and second to last in goals against (49), while the Clippers are at the other end of the spectrum, scoring half as many goals as the Bulldogs but allowing only half as many, too. “We’ll want to keep it down in their zone and out of our zone as much as we can, try to stay away from the ping pong kind of game,� said Brenden Forbes, Clippers alternate captain. The last time the teams played, the Bulldogs blitzed the Clippers for three goals in the first six minutes and went on to win 5-2. “They came out hot right off the bat and we got a couple penalties, too, so we’ve got to be careful to stay out of the box in the early going,� said Forbes.

Alberni has three players in the top 10 in BCHL scoring, including league leader Evan Tironese who has 18 points. Slowing down the opposition will require team defence and committed forechecking, say the Clippers. “Just be a little better in the defensive zone. Just get the puck out and try working it in their zone a little more than what we did in the last game when we played them,â€? said Reid Sturos, Clippers forward. “We just need to make simple plays. Get in there, shoot pucks and bear down.â€? Nanaimo has been outscored in half its games this season, but it hasn’t been outshot yet in 2012-13. In its 4-3 overtime loss Sunday against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, the Clips generated 64 shots. They just need to make sure that sort of pressure results in a few more goals. “When you’re inside like that, you’ve got to take a stick on the hand. Even though you’re getting a bruise or two, just put the puck in the net,â€? Sturos said. GAME ON ‌ The Clippers host the Bulldogs Friday at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena, then visit Alberni on Saturday. On Sunday the Penticton Vees come to Frank Crane for a 3 p.m. faceoff ‌ For a recap of the Clippers’ last game, visit www.nanai mobulletin.com.

Raiders clinch first place

heroics, as the visitors led 31-18 at the threeminute warning. But the Rams scored two touchdowns in a minute and a half to claim an improbable lead. Taking over at their own 33-yard line with 1:03 left on the clock, the Raiders drove their way into Mueller range and the veteran kicked the winning points just inside the near post. “Yes, I put the kick through, but our whole team came together to win the game,” Mueller said.

V.I. DEFEATS Rams 34-32 on mainland.

The V.I. Raiders clinched first place in last-second style. Nanaimo’s Canadian Junior Football League team defeated the Langley Rams 34-32 on Saturday in the Fraser Valley on Mark Mueller’s 41-yard field goal with no time left. The game didn’t look as though it was going to require last-second

V.I. quarterback Jordan Yantz threw for 406 yards on 24-of-34 passing with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Matt Sawyer caught both TDs. The Raiders’ defence was led by linebacker Dylan Chapdelaine, who had five tackles and three sacks.

Genesis R-Spec a ‘bad boy’ among sedans QQuickfacts

I

2012 HYUNDAI model fits in its premium class.

◆ TYPE - Rear-wheeldrive full-size premium sedan.

BY NEIL MOORE

arning: disabling traction control on the 2012 Genesis R-Spec sedan may result in significant tread wear. I say ‘may result,’ because if you drive Hyundai’s recentlyupdated, near-flagship vehicle with restraint, it can be as docile as any other large luxury sedan. But if you’re heavy on the pedal, and are naughty enough to disable traction control, its all-new 5.0-litre V8, which has grown in displacement from 4.6 litres and in horsepower from 385 to 429, is capable of spinning its big 19-inch wheels with abandon. And vaporizing a few bucks worth of expensive rubber. I experienced this in early fall at Mosport International Raceway, where as part of a larger event that included track time in the more agile coupe, journalists also had the opportunity to go head-to-head on a makeshift drag strip, and engage it a little tireshedding tomfoolery. But such fun is fleeting. So a few weeks later, I booked the car for a full week of testing. Between road and track, I discovered that the 2012 Genesis R-Spec – the top trim of the lineup – is more than just a big, cushy executive sedan. With its sport-tuned,

◆ ENGINE - 5.0-litre V8 gasoline direct injection (429 horsepower).

W

◆ TRANSMISSION Eight-speed automatic with Shiftronic manual control. ◆ FUEL ECONOMY - 13.1L per 100 kilometres in the city, 8.1L/100km on the highway.

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Compared to last year’s sedan, the 2012 Genesis wears a more aggressive front, with a larger lower intake and redesigned trapezoidal headlights with striking LED accents. From the side, rocker panels enhance its assertive profile.

five-link front and rear suspension, the R-Spec is stiff, although not uncomfortably so. And it takes a hard corner with surprisingly little lean. But the big news for this new model is not the freshened look, nor even the upgrade from a sixspeed auto to Hyundai’s eight-speed automatic transmission. It’s the brawny 5.0-litre powerplant that has been bored out from the previous 4.6 litres, and given gasoline direct injection, along with other performance tweaks. This results in not only

the aforementioned boost in horsepower, but a significant bump in peak torque. And although the car is no lightweight at 1,884 kilograms, it will launch from zero to 100 km/h in about 5.8 seconds, which is quick by any standard. The R-Spec also delivers the kind of power you’ll find in today’s pony cars. It’s a little slower, but not by much, and provides a good deal more passenger comfort. This Genesis model may lack the brand cachet of a Merc or a Bimmer (not to mention

the street cred of a Mustang or Camaro), but if you can live with its high levels of performance, luxury and refinement without the high-priced logos, then the R-Spec may be for you. I’ve heard a lot of criticism about the Genesis’s price tag being a lot to spend on a Hyundai. But bear in mind that in its first model year, the Genesis was awarded 2009 North American Car of The Year and took top honours from the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada, winning Canadian Car

of the Year and Best New Luxury Car in its class. Also consider its value proposition. On the base vehicle, you get dual-zone automatic climate control with auto defogging, leather seating that is heated and power adjustable in front, seven-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, woodgrain trim, power sunroof, proximity entry with pushbutton start, rain-sensing wipers, heated side mirrors with turn signals and puddle lamps and more. And it’s powered by a revised 3.8L V6 that

also benefits from GDI technology for 2012. Its output climbs from 290 to 333hp. There are two models between base and top trim: the V6-powered 3.8 with premium package and the 3.8 with technology package. Only the R-Spec is powered by Hyundai’s Tau V8. Its long equipment list includes everything from the base model plus heated rear seats and cooled driver’s seat – all in ultra premium leather, power rear sunshade, leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, 17-speaker stereo, navigation system with eightinch monitor, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, rear backup camera, adaptive headlights and more. On the inside, the R-Spec is fitted as nicely as you’d expect for a premium sedan. ◆ See ‘HYUNDAI’ /B9

It’s a relatively minor complaint, and so is my gripe about exhaust noise – I want some. A car with this much bite needs some growl and with all the sound deadening materials, along with acoustic windshield and side glass, you can barely hear those big tires clawing at the pavement.

Compass navigates into new territory

I

JEEP CROSSOVER delves into soft-road segment of sport utes.

A decade ago, Jeep set about the task of broadening its appeal to a larger market. Despite all the wailing and gnashing of teeth over “diluting the brand” from the offroading faithful, Chrysler started exploring the “soft-roader” segment of crossover sport utes, first dipping its toes into the water with a two-door V6 AWD Compass concept that debuted at the NAIAS in Detroit in 2002, then committing with the unveiling of the actual Compass production version five years later at the same show. For the 2011 model the Compass received a long list of mid-life upgrades. The 2011 Jeep Compass carries a distinct family resemblance to the premium 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Up front, the squared-off grille was slanted back and pimped with a small dose of chrome surrounding the traditional seven slots. The new face was complemented with new front fenders and a new fascia, also gaining attitude with a new power bulge hood. The quad reflector headlamp assemblies replaced the old round-eye heritage headlights and lighting performance was further enhanced with standard highoutput projector fog lamps. The new look has been completed with slimmer roof rails, a new rear fascia, new body-colour rear spoiler, new wheels, and and LED taillights. Inside, the cloth bucket seats up front are comfortable, complemented by a new centre armrest. It includes backlighting of door switches, door locks, windows and power mirror controls. And a new three-spoke Jeep tilt steering wheel houses integrated controls for audio, cruise, phone and other vehicle functions. All the stuff mentioned so far is standard in the entry Sport trim, along with a 60/40 folding rear seat, electronic stability control with hill start assist, electronic roll mitigation, ABS with brake assist and a

few other do-dads. The mid-range level Jeep comes equipped with air conditioning, power windows and locks, remote keyless illuminated entry, power heated folding mirrors, darker tinted windows, height adjustment for the driver’s seat and a fold-flat front passenger seat for long loads, along with a 115V AC power outlet. Moving up to the limited level at the top of the trim ladder, adds bigger wheels, better audio, heated leather seats and other options. Under the hood, Chrysler Canada offers a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder making 172 hp at 6000 rpm and 165 lb/ft torque peaking at 4400 rpm. It can be mated to the standard five-speed manual shifter or to a CVT automatic, in either 4X2 or 4X4 models. The Freedom Drive I automatic four-wheel-drive system works like most AWD systems, directing power to the rear wheels when the front wheels slip and it even comes with a lock mode for snow or severe conditions. The newly-added Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package includes a second-generation continuously variable transaxle with low range (CVT2L), 17-inch all-terrain tires and aluminum wheels, a one-inch raised ride height, a full-size spare tire, skid plates and tow hooks. Although my test was in a 2011 model, the new 2012s on sale now are priced the same and remain relatively unchanged except for a few new colours and some tweaks to the CVT transmission.

A BOUQUET to the lady who thanked us with a bouquet for the return of her purse to Wal-Mart. We feel appreciated and it was nice to be recognized as an angel. We are glad to have made your day happier. A BOUQUET to the ladies out there – you are the pretty flowers of humanity. A PLUG for whistles. Keep one in your pocket or purse, it can be very useful in emergencies. A BEAUTIFUL THANK YOU BOUQUET to Eye Care Nanaimo on Bowen Road for fixing my glasses. The arm was broken and a helpful employee found a spare and mounted it for no charge. You will have our business in the future. A BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET OF ROSES to the Young Professionals of Nanaimo for organizing the painting of the old A&B Sound building downtown and to all of the volunteers who helped with the project. It looks great. A SUMMER BOUQUET to Sandra for hauling my bicycle to the shop in her truck and to Hank for fixing it so quickly. MANY THANKS from a senior to whoever found my keys on a purple, coiled wrist band and put them in the mail. An outdated War Amps tag was on the chain, but they were able to trace me and return my keys. A FIELD FULL OF PUMPKINS to the nice lady behind the counter at Fairway Market. She was cheerful and helpful beyond the call of duty.

A HUGE BOUQUET to Const. Mike Ramsey for your caring and compassion during the loss of our loved one. This duty is well beyond "to serve and protect." THANK YOU to Casino Nanaimo, paramedics and Nanaimo Regional General Hospital emergency staff who showed kindness and compassion for our mom, who suddenly and unexpectedly passed away recently. Also A ROSE to the lady who offered help.

Thursday, October 11, 11 2012 Nanaimo News Bulletin

A FLAVOURFUL BOUQUET to Bada Bing pizzeria on Wakesiah Avenue for the delicious food. Good pizza, good prices. From a new customer. A DISNEY BOUQUET to Kari at Sears Travel for your exceptional service in booking our trip to L.A.

A BOUQUET to Raymond at Fair Trade Home Improvements for doing such a fantastic job renovating our washroom. Despite the hidden issues found upon demolition, he stayed true to his quote. This level of professionalism and perfection is seldom seen in contractors. I highly recommend him. THANKS to the volunteers and supporters for the supper I received one recent Friday night at St. Paul's Anglican Church. It was good and much appreciated.

BIG BOUQUETS to all our relatives, friends and neighbours who donated to and helped set up our B.C. Children's Hospital Foundation charity garage sale. We raised $466 with proceeds going to childhood cancer research. Also thanks to the Comox Fire Department for loaning us tables to display our assortment of treasures. A BOUQUET to the city for the new bus benches. All that I have seen have been on a pad except the one on Dover Road at Applecross Road. Why is this one on the sidewalk where people have to walk around it?

A BOUQUET to the man on the bike who helped my son and I when we had to swerve and brake suddenly to avoid being hit by a truck on the corner of the Parkway and Northfield Road. Many thanks F to for calling the ambulance. A BEEF the truck driver, who didn't even get out of his truck, but just drove away. A BIG, STINKY BEEF F to the lady who stole my mom’s purse and, after taking all the money, scattered the contents in the forest. What goes around comes around. A BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET to the two wonderful homeless people who took the time to gather the contents from her purse and return it to her promptly.

A SMOKY PILE OF BEEF F to some traffic control staff. I have seen two different ladies smoking cigarettes while directing traffic. Not only is it a fire hazard, but it also looks unprofessional to passersby. Do you not have a rule stating no smoking on the job? A BEEF F to intrusive service companies. One wants me to change my cable service. Another one wants me to change my phone services. I have said no over the phone and thrown away the information I receive in the mail. Someone even came to my door. What part of 'no' do these people not understand? A BEEF F to the human who sent in a totally fabricated bouquet two weeks ago, trying to pretend it was from his/her dog or cat. I know your pet didn't really write the message because animals don't have opposable thumbs, rational thoughts or souls.

q

A BOUQUET to Kal Tire on Norwell Drive. I took my car in for a tire repair and they did that plus an overall check on my car. I was told it was no charge and a carnation was on my seat. Thanks for the great service.

A BEEF F to a waitress at a north Nanaimo restaurant. Ever heard of washing your hands? A BEEF. The other day I called the city's animal control department to come pick up a friendly dog with no tags that was wandering around Maffeo Sutton Park. They told me they pick up this dog at least three times a month. I was heartbroken that this poor animal continues to suffer, so I told the animal control employee that I would just find him a good home, but they had to take him. A GIANT PILE OF BEEF F to a restaurant for getting our order wrong and then telling us that they didn't believe it was wrong. The owner told us that it was policy to not refund anything to unhappy clients regardless of the reason. We were upset with how we were treated by both management and the owner. A BEEF. My wife and I took our grandchildren to a Nanaimo Clippers game recently. When the game ended, we forgot our blue seat cushions with the Penticton Vees logo – we moved to Nanoose Bay from Penticton three years ago – and our names on them. When we went back to get them, they were gone. If you found them or know who has them, please turn them in to arena management or call us at 250-4687981. From Jim and Dale Garrett.

A BEEF F to the lady who borrowed a tool from our store to retrieve her keys from her locked car. After remaining open well past closing time, you never bothered to return it before driving away. Shame on you. A BEEF F to the person who found my Marianne book bag containing my music and did not turn it in. Please return it to the caretaker upstairs at the German clubhouse. A BEEF F to people who take their old dogs on difficult hikes in the mountains. Would you take a 90year-old person up Mount Benson? It's the same for dogs. The dog I saw was clearly in distress. Next time leave it at home, or go for an easier hike. A BEEF F to the store employee who followed me around just because I walked in with a hood on. It was cold outside. AN E. COLI BEEF F to all the people worried about a tiny bit of tainted beef. Oh no! You might get E. coli poisoning and then you'll only have a 99.5 per cent chance of survival. Let's all chill out.

ADVERTISE in the LARGEST OUTDOOR PUBLICATION IN BC The 2013-2015 BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis

March 28, 1930 - September 20, 2012

Dad was born in Leuchars, Scotland on the 28th of March, 1930. He was the ďŹ rst born of John Watters Herd and wife Betty Nicholson Watson Herd. His birth was registered in St. Andrews. My Father, Ronald George Herd grew to have one sister and two brothers. Throughout the war, Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family travelled throughout Scotland as Grandpa was an electrician. Grandpaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skills were needed during the war and as such there were many school changes throughout Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school years. The war really impacted Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view of funerals. None of us like funerals, but Dad especially did not want a funeral or a celebration of life. Grandpa and Dad immigrated to Canada in 1952 and for two years they worked and sent money home to get Granny and the rest of the family to Canada. Dad worked as a teacher in Scotland and as an engineer here in Canada. Once Dad came to Canada, he never returned to Scotland. He embraced Canada as his own. He played ruggar when he arrived and kept many of those friendships over the years. It was with the help of the Jewish Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Society that Dad got his start in Canada. With a loan from Rabi Rosenburg of Toronto, Dad got enough money to purchase a car to get him to his ďŹ rst job. That kindness stayed with Dad all the years of his life. That story became a family story, told with pride and repeated many times over the years. It remains our familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pay it Forward, and a true point of pride and gratefulness. Dad met Mom in Toronto and they courted for two years. They married on April 9, 1955. I am the only child of Ronald George Herd and Noretta Lilayan Lentz Herd, (born August 17th, 1932, Maynooth, Ontario). Dad worked for English Electric 1955-57; Racey McCallum 1957-59 where he was a metallurgist at the Chalk River reactor. Dad and Mom chose a boxer named Bootsieas their ďŹ rst dog and from there they built their life. They ran a boarding kennel in Maple, Ontario while Dad worked as a dogcatcher 1959-61. Dad ended up working for Purina 1961-65 and through this he began attending the dog shows. Dad showed our own dogs, was active in the Boxer breed and went on to become an international dog judge. Our home was blessed by many four legged lovies throughout the years. We had boxers and pointers, a poodle, some cats and a bassett- not all at the same time of course! We moved to Cooksville (Mississauga), in 1965, and that home was where we all remained throughout my schooling. Dad worked for Arnett in Port Credit from 1965-71. He was the manager of Gaylord Regethermic in Brampton from 1971-1986. After leaving Gaylord he became a real estate agent in Mississauga and sold property from 1986-1991. After Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement in 1991, Mom and Dad moved to Vancouver Island- â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paradise Foundâ&#x20AC;? as Dad said. Dad continued his dog judging and traveling. He had earned his all-around judging and this aďŹ&#x20AC;orded Dad the excitement of judging and travels to other countries. He remained active in judging until his retirement from judging in November 1999. Dad remained active in the breed and to this day we still have many friends in the dog game. Dad was recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club for ďŹ fty years of dedicated service. My Dad was active in the Nanaimo community. He was involved in Citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Patrol for two years. He went on to start Speed Watch here in Nanaimo and was awarded the Volunteer Award for 1999 for Vancouver Island by the Ministry of the Attorney General. That program still runs today with volunteers. Dad passed away suddenly on Thursday September 20th while Mom and I were on an overnight trip to Ucluelet. When we were unable to reach Dad by phone, our dear friend Rick came to the house and found him. My Dad leaves behind his wife (my Mother) Noretta, daughter Sherri-Lynn, grand-cat Nubby, and many close and dear friends and extended family to mourn his passing. I would like to thank everyone for the prayers and kind words, shared memories and acts of support that have buoyed us through this diďŹ&#x192;cult ďŹ&#x192; time. Thank you to the paramedics, ďŹ re and rescue, RCMP and the coroner for coming to take care of my Dad. Dad will be cremated and buried at a later date in Maynooth, Ontario, where most of Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family is laid to rest. Arrangements are being handled by Benson Funeral Home in Millbrook, Ontario. Should anyone wish to make a donation in Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, we have selected The Christ Lutheran Church, RR#1, Maynooth, Ontario, K0L 2S0.

Kenneth G. Marson July 22, 1938 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; September 24, 2012 It is with heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Ken. Pre-deceased by his mother, Anne Marson, Ken leaves to mourn his beloved wife of 51 years, Sheila; daughters Laurie (Botta) and Brenda (Marson); grandchildren Taisha, Tiana and Devon; sisters Thelma (Rumney) and Margaret (Wharton). From Nanaimo, Ken left with his young family to pursue a successful career in Instrumentation Process Controls, which led to him to complete various jobs across Canada and ultimately to operate his own business, Silverdale Resources. Returning to retire in Nanaimo with his wife, Ken enjoyed travelling, gardening and doing many â&#x20AC;&#x153;projectsâ&#x20AC;? around his beautiful home. Full of energy, Ken took up golf at age 65 and loved the game and his golf buddies at the Nanaimo Golf Club. Ken was a member of the Nanaimo Wine Club and was recognized, through many competitions, as an exceptional wine maker and mentor. Ken will be remembered for his sunny disposition, analytical mind, great sense of humour, and unending generosity to those around him. In his 74 years, Ken led an extraordinary life, touched many lives and will be greatly missed. A Celebration of Life will be held at Costin Hall in Lantzville on October 20, 2012 at 1:30. The family wishes to thank Kenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extended family, friends and neighbours for their love and support as well as the medical staďŹ&#x20AC; at Nanaimo Hospital for their care and compassion. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, donations made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
