FALL INTO SAVINGS

View Royal residents will go to referendum Nov. 24 and now they’ll know the terms of the loan for a proposed new fire hall. Of four options brought forward by municipal staff at a recent meeting, council followed staff’s recommendation to seek a 20 year loan at an estimated interest rate of 3.5 per cent. That rate is based on current interest rates, which could change by spring 2013, when the town would actually take out the loan. A loan of $5,490,000 is projected to cost $3,843,000 in interest over the 20 years. Of that $1.8 million will be repaid through actuarial funds generated by investments made by the Municipal Finance Authority of B.C., the agency issuing the loan, estimated to be at a rate of four per cent. The total amount to be paid back by the town is estimated to be $7,530,276. Annual payments of Graham Hill the loan would amount to $376,514. Of that, $27,000 would come from non-residents, namely First Nations communities, with the rest to be paid by View Royal residents. For an average single-family residence this would amount to a property tax increase of $85 per year, or $7 per month, for a 6.7 per cent increase to taxation. The cost to businesses would be an estimated average $648 per year. Borrowing money through the Municipal Finance Authority means lower interest rates for the town, Mayor Graham Hill said. Should council have chosen a 25-year loan it would have cost the town an estimated additional $569,116 in interest. PLEASE SEE: Procedure bylaw to be reviewed, Page A2

Bus drivers in Greater Victoria scrapped their uniforms in favour of street clothes. The uniform ban was sanctioned by the Canadian Auto Workers local 333. “We’re trying to do everything we can without disrupting service,� said union local president Ben Williams. “We’re not getting their attention.� The drivers’ job action will escalate by Tuesday if B.C. Transit has not returned to the negotiating table, Williams said. “It will affect the commuting public.� More than 650 bus drivers, skilled trades and maintenance workers in Greater Victoria issued strike notice (Oct. 5). The two sides remain at an impasse over wage increases and benefits, which are not in

line with the B.C. government’s net zero mandate, said Transit spokesperson Meribeth Burton. “We asked the bargaining committee to go and speak to other unions. There seems to be a lack of understanding about what the co-operative gains mandate is,� she said. The negotiating mandate requires unions to offset wage increases with cost savings and gains in other areas. Both the B.C. Nurses Union and B.C. Government Employees Union have come to tentative contract agreements under the mandate. “Our (offer) is exactly in line with the nurses (and) the BCGEU and we’re still surprised we’re sitting at this impasse,� Burton said. Williams, however, said the union is aware of the government’s restraints. “We are within the guidelines that are laid out with the govern-

ment,� he said. No specific bargaining details are being provided by either side, but both Williams and B.C. Transit expressed a desire to return to negotiations. Burton called the uniform ban a safety violation. “It’s confusing for our riders but we’re grateful that at least the system is running,� she said. Greater Victoria transit operators last took strike action in April 2001. It lasted 14 days. Previous strikes took place in 1999 (one week) and 1984, when a three-month walkout crippled the economy of downtown Victoria. HandyDART drivers are under a separate collective agreement and not part of the job action. – files from Roszan Holmen dpalmer@vicnews.com PLEASE SEE: Our View, Page A8

cillors object to. “I really do feel it is almost being made a mockery of,� said Coun.

Langford cat ‘lucky’ after crossbow hit

Charla Huber Reporting

A

ll Donna La Rose could do was scream when her cat Ozzy walked toward her with a large crossbow arrow through his torso. “I was just yelling and screaming ‘he’s been shot,’” Donna said holding her cat on her lap Tuesday morning. A large bandage wrapped Ozzy’s middle ,covering his shaved back and two stitched puncture wounds. The feline was missing for a few days before he was spotted by Donna in the La Rose’s Jacklin Road yard between the apple tree and the garden. Her husband Ron was in the house and came running into the yard in his socks. “I am pretty sure it was

deliberate,” Ron said. Ozzy was shot with a crossbow bolt about 40 centimetres long. “It was very close to his spine and close to his lung,” Ron said. “He’s a pretty lucky cat. If it had been an inch either way he would have died.” The injuries were deemed life threatening, but Ozzy is expected to make a full recovery. “The vet said she’s never seen anything like this at all,” Donna said. Ron removed the tip of the arrow, a field point, making it a little easier for the arrow to be removed. Since the attack, Ozzy has been recovering as an indoor cat, and the couple are unsure if he’ll ever be an outdoor cat again. Ozzy had been missing since Sept. 30. The 11-yearold cat hadn’t taken off from his Langford home in years. He retuned home on Oct. 5. The couple have had pets, cats and dogs, for the past 21 years and never have they had one of their animals attacked. West Shore RCMP are investigating the incident. charla@goldstream gazette.com

Fast fire response snuffs bush blaze Kyle Wells News staff

View Royal volunteer firefighters quickly extinguished a brush fire last Friday afternoon that flared up next to the Galloping Goose trail near Stancil Lane. About 4:30 p.m. a resident called 911 after hearing crackling and see-

ing heat waves rising from a patch of brush surrounded by residential homes adjacent to the trail. “All of a sudden I saw the billows of smoke and the flames starting to lick up the trees,” resident Steve Kiernan said. “I commend the View Royal fire department because they were right on it. Unbelievably fast.” Kiernan said View Royal Fire Res-

cue arrived in a matter of minutes. Firefighters hit the blaze with water and foam, extinguishing the fire in about two hours. Fire Chief Paul Hurst said that West Shore RCMP questioned a man at the site in relation to the fire and it is likely the fire was human caused. Unseasonably dry conditions

means the risk for forest fires is still great, said Hurst. There is currently an opening burning ban in place throughout the West Shore and people are reminded to be extra careful when disposing of cigarettes. “It was burning like it was summertime,” Hurst said. “For this time of year it’s pretty unexpected.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

A 57-year-old man is in a coma at the Victoria General Hospital after interrupting a fight Monday. The man tried to intervene in a domestic assault between a man and woman around 8 p.m. at the Country Rose Pub in Colwood on Oct. 8. The 57-year-old was punched by a 31-yearold Highlands man. “He was punched and lost consciousness,” said West Shore RCMP Sgt. Max Fossum. “Another witness chased the suspect (who fled).” The victim underwent emergency surgery, Oct. 9, to relieve pressure in his head. He is currently in an induced coma. West Shore RCMP set up a containment area to help capture the suspect. Victoria police also attended with dogs but the suspect was not apprehended. A Highlands man was arrested on Oct. 9 and remains in custody. Proposed charges will vary on the 57-year-old’s medical outcome, said RCMP. charla@goldstream gazette.com

Seniors the back bone of food bank Charla Huber News staff

Charla Huber/News staff

Gloria Driscoll is one of the 100 senior volunteers at the Goldstream Food Bank. The food bank volunteers are 99 per cent seniors.

There is no dinging bell as a white ticket is placed in a pass-through window with food orders on it. It’s not for a table of four, but a food hamper for four. The Legion basement is bustling with volunteers and hungry people on the first Tuesday afternoon of October. The Goldstream Food Bank operates fully on volunteers. “We have 110 volunteers and probably 100 of them are seniors or retired,” said food bank president Gayle Ireland. It runs on the generosity of seniors and Ireland said that’s a system that is working. “All young people are busy paying rents and mortgages and they don’t have the time to donate,” Ireland said. “Whenever our volunteers get too old to help out, new ones are always coming.” For nearly 15 years Gloria Driscoll has spent her days at the food bank. Lifting heavy boxes loaded with food

into shopping carts or cradling three days worth of eggs, margarine and cheese in her arms as she walks. Driscoll is always moving. “It’s a worth while thing to do, the food bank is something that we need,” Driscoll said. “I’ve always wanted to help and this teaches me the need. If there is no one here to pack up the food, there would be no one getting it.” Over the years Driscoll has seen the clientele change. When she first began volunteering “it was mostly just needy people in low-income housing, but now it’s people who are working but they have to choose between rent and food.” For the past five years Roy MacDonald has been helping at the food bank. “My wife brought me here,” he said. Even though the majority of volunteers are seniors, MacDonald said it’s an ideal volunteering situation for

retired folks. “(Younger people) all have jobs or they are in the navy,” he said. “But I love it.” Young Paek, 57, has always wanted to volunteer at the food bank and now she is retired and able to do it. “When I was younger I wanted to do it, and now that I don’t have a business and the kids aren’t around I can,” she said while scooping kitty litter to put in the hampers of cat owners. Even though all of the volunteers are there to help others, they enjoy the other volunteers and the community it creates. “Just when you stop working for yourself, you start working for others,” said Audrey Van Bruchem. “Seniors have a little more flexibility with time and can be here when the food bank is open.” The Goldstream Food Bank is always accepting new volunteers. For more information on volunteering or donating food call 250-474-4443. All grocery stores on the West Shore also offer bins for non-perishable items to dropped off at. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Warm water in Langford Lake held back the fish release this year. About 2,000 rainbow trout swam into the lake Oct. 4. Being cold water fish, Brian Martin hatchery manager for Freshwater Fisheries Soceity of B.C., likes to release the fish once the summer temperatures have dropped. In the summer the water temperatures can rise up to 22C and at the hatchery the fish are used to 10C waters. “Warmer water has less oxygen and it’s hard for the fish to breathe,” Martin said. Currently the lake is about 18C. The water in the transport truck was set at 14C to help the fish adapt to the warmer waters. In the coming weeks another 3,000 will be added. The fish are catchable sized about 225 grams and 12 inches long. charla@goldstream gazette.com

T

wo West Shore RCMP auxiliary constables have been awarded the Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition for their years of service to police work and the community. Lorne Fletcher and Don Devenney were picked out for the honour. Across Canada 64 auxiliary constables received the award, including the two to the West Shore members. There are around 1,200 auxiliary constables in B.C. The award is given to Canadians to honour significant contributions and Kyle Wells achievements. In total Reporting 60,000 are being given out in honour of the 60th anniversary of the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accession to the throne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was stunned, I really was,â&#x20AC;? said Devenney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had not even thought that we would have been put up for it,

at any stretch. I was quite surprised and quite humbled by the whole thing.â&#x20AC;? Devenney said in 17 years of service with the agency, he has never volunteered less than 200 hours and last year he clocked 360 hours. Devenney also took part in Tour de Rock in 2008 and the gruelling Sultan Marathon des Sables, a 246-kilometre run in the Moroccan Sahara desert, earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always had a personal belief that you can either be a part of the solution or a part of the problem,â&#x20AC;? Devenney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I chose to be a part of the solution. I also believe that everybody should be doing something toward their community.â&#x20AC;? Over 22 years Fletcher said he has contributed thousands of hours to the position, including his own Tour de Rock ride in 2003. For the past few years Fletcher has also been involved in the provincial advisory committee for the auxiliary program, which helps

Fletcher said now he sees the role from a broader perspective and believes in the greater community building opportunities the role provides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just kept me going, the opportunities to be involved different things,â&#x20AC;? Fletcher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is like any other volunteer position, you get, fully, out of it what you put into. You can make it as wonderful as you want it to be.â&#x20AC;? Both officers said the job isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for everyone, but for those who fit the bill joining the auxiliary constable program is an excellent way to give back to the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got that core group of auxiliary coinstables who know the community, they know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on,â&#x20AC;? Fletcher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a bit of a resource.â&#x20AC;? kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Bus strikes hit poor, elderly P

eople with long memories understand what life is like without bus service. Slightly more than 11 years ago, Greater Victoria suffered through a two-week transit strike, where the main form of transportation for tens of thousands of people ground to a halt. Some people made do and carpooled with friends or hopped on a bike. Many who needed to crisscross the region couldn’t get to their jobs and lost wages, or risked their personal safety by hitchhiking. Parents suddenly had to drive teenagers who normally took the bus to school. Elderly people on fixed incomes who usually hopped a bus doled out for taxis for medical appointments or grocery shopping. Some drivers and bike riders enjoyed roadways free of big, imposing buses, and many people with cars offered strangers free lifts, but the silver linings of a transit strike are few. Perhaps more than any other public sector contract dispute, shutting down buses throws a city’s economy into chaos and hurts the most vulnerable people. Prior to the 2001 strike, bus drivers went on strike in 1999 for one week. Before that, transit went on strike in 1984 for three months and crippled the economy of downtown Victoria. Today it’s shocking how little has changed in terms of transportation infrastructure. At least back then you could still catch the VIA dayliner. If bus drivers strike next week, cycling and carpooling will ramp up and many people will make do. But the poor, elderly and disabled will face a grim few weeks or months. The Canadian Auto Workers union and B.C. Transit management demonstrated in the past that they are willing to use the city’s transportation network as a negotiating tool. Many other big unions – nurses, government employees and even teachers – have found ways to work within the province’s net-zero mandate. Both sides in the transit dispute claim they are too. The damage done by a transit strike is well documented. Agreeing to a contract is possible and inevitable. The CAW and B.C. Transit don’t have to shut down the city to do it. What do you think?

These unexpected discoveries can really make researching your family’s background a rewarding pastime. While I was writing this column, I was randomly typing into Google family names to see what would pop up. I quickly discovered a few new facts about my paternal grandmother’s brother, George Fowle. Then came the real surprise. My great grandfather had come to Canada with his wife and children, as well as a half-brother, Timothy Barmby. That half-brother had one child, who never had kids of his own, so that seemed like the end of the Barmby family line here. Except my search also turned up a family page for a Barmby brother or cousin who came to Canada at the same time, married in Winnipeg, had children and ended up in Saskatchewan. Who knew? Well, now we do. So now it’s back to the previous mystery: what did my grandfather do for those years in London? Don Denton is photo supervisor for Black Press Greater Victoria. ddenton@vicnews.com

LETTERS Flushing our sewage is far from an ideal situation I heard former environment minister David Anderson say recently that dumping Victoria’s sewage into the Strait of Juan de Fuca was “as effective as artificial land-based sewage treatment.” How can any intelligent human believe such a statement? According to Capital Regional District numbers, outfalls at Clover Point and Macaulay Point handle the effluent from 330,000 people daily, many of whom use personal-care products, laundry products, medicines and more, all contributing to a chemical stew being discharged into the local environment.

Stores throughout the region sell over-the-counter medicines, household cleansers, mouthwashes, hair dyes, bleaches and similar products every day. Additionally, many area residents use prescription drugs, virtually all of which pass through their bodies and are excreted into the waste stream. Anyone can read the warning labels on any of these products, and understand they pose a threat to the environment if not handled carefully. Even toothpaste is toxic, with labels warning users not to ingest the

product. But almost all of the areas’ 330,000 residents flush this down the drains, every day. Anderson and the Association for Responsible, Ethical and Sustainable Sewage Treatment say “source control” is their answer to the concerns about these chemical contaminants. Does he really think Victoria’s residents will stop washing their clothes, cleaning their houses, or stop taking their medicines? Many scientific studies have been done that show these chemicals are damaging the worlds’ environment. Anderson says the conditions

of the Strait of Juan de Fuca are somehow “different,” yet virtually all communities along the Strait currently have sewage treatment, except Victoria. Even little communities like Sooke, Sidney, Salt Spring Island, Friday Harbour, Port Townsend and Sequim have sewage treatment. If these communities all have funded and built sewage treatment, why can’t affluent Victoria, the Provincial Capital? Anderson tells the public an “exemption” is possible. With virtually every other nearby community already treating its

sewage, what will Victoria state as its “special” circumstances, warranting its ability to continue to pollute the areas’ environment all others are spending so much to clean up? Modern sewage treatment facilities remove 98 per cent of the chemicals of concern. Screening raw sewage before dumping it into the environment removes none of them. It is sad to see Anderson and others deceive the public in their efforts to achieve their political goals. Tyler Ahlgren Victoria

Readers respond: Ironman Canada bid, Syrian war, sewage legacy Ironman Canada bid loss a crying shame Re: Too much, too soon for Victoria (Sports, Oct. 5) What a shame. Although it was apparently the preferred location, Victoria has lost its bid to become the next host and permanent home of the Ironman Canada, a world famous triathlon event attracting thousands of participants and visitors each year. The reason given by the event organizers for not accepting Victoria’s bid was the archaic bureaucratic and stifling procedures required to obtain quick approval and continuity from 10 of our 13 municipalities in order to meet the timing and routing commitments for the event. Just another case for amalgamation wouldn’t you say? This is especially sad, since apparently Ironman Canada gave

Victoria the highest rating for its course, location and all round perfect venue. We all know the natural beauty of our area is a highlight for all participants from around the world when they participate in our many marathons and other sporting events throughout the year. Wouldn’t you think that an event of this magnitude, with the financial benefits it would bring to our area, that the provincial government, along with strong input from all municipalities in our area, would have enthusiastically endorsed our bid rather than idly sitting back, leaving just a few local interested parties to pursue the bid on their own? Maybe it’s for the best, as families from the Mainland would probably not be able to afford to come over to share in the excitement of this world-class event because of the atrocious

fare prices of our B.C. Ferries. Martin Battle Victoria

Children victimized in Syrian civil war Today, I am ashamed to be Canadian. I am appalled and disgusted that Canada is not doing more to help children in Syria. While I sit and pay for Stephen Harper’s salary and spending account, hundreds of children are dying by the day. What is the media doing to support them? Is the media applying pressure to the federal government to mobilize aid? As a Canadian citizen, I increase your ratings by turning on the news. When do you do something for me? I’m asking that you help these children, draw as much attention to their plight as you possibly can. Tell Canadian citizens what it

is they can do to help. Somebody needs to get to those children, any way they can. Rachelle Dallaire Langford

Sewage project latest Campbell legacy fiasco Should anyone be surprised that the B.C. Appeal Court has thrown out the ludicrous thirdparty advertising law that Gordon Campbell crafted? It joins the turfing-out of his drinking-driving curbside justice fiasco, his shredding of the teachers’ contracts and several others. And they join his brilliant policies like the carbon tax and the phony $100 rebate that came with it, his compulsory balancedbudget legislation, the payment of $5 million in legal fees for the defendants who pleaded guilty in the B.C. Rail scandal, his fixed election dates, $600-million

roof for B.C. Place, his closing of Tourism B.C., open cabinet meetings and dozens of equally bizarre decisions that he and his cabinet colleagues decided were so appropriate. Perhaps people will now understand how much thought went into the Campbell/Penner orders that we should spend $1 billion treating sewage effluent that is already – almost perfectly – being treated in the ocean off our southern shores. Too bad he also eliminated the requirement for a referendum, or for any environmental/economic/ social impact study, because neither would pass. When will some of our elected officials summon up the courage to start telling the truth and stop this project? Or, is the stampede of the politically correct lemmings irreversible?

Celebrate link in the news chain Don Descoteau News staff

It’s easy to take for granted the community newspaper that gets delivered to your door twice a week. Readers should know, however, that Black Press doesn’t take the people who distribute the Gazette for granted. “For me the carriers are No. 1,” says Black Press Greater Victoria circulation director Bruce Hogarth, who oversees about 1,100 delivery people throughout the system. “Without the carriers, all the hard work that goes into producing the newspaper would be for naught.” Newspaper Carrier Appreciation Week in B.C. runs from tomorrow (Oct. 13) through Oct. 20. To celebrate, the Gazette and parent company Black Press are spotlighting the youth and adults who are the final link in the news chain that starts with stories being written and advertisements sold and ends with people taking time out to read our print products. In Greater Victoria, the small army of Black Press carriers

Inmates find purpose in the world of Tolkien Prison production of The Hobbit celebrates 75th anniversary Kyle Wells News staff

The vast expanses of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth may be hard to imagine from life inside a prison, but for the inmates of William Head Institution, putting on The Hobbit has been a journey all their own. Under the direction of Kate Rubin, the William Head Stage Theatre Society is performing Rubin’s adaptation of Tolkien’s beloved novel from Oct. 12 to Nov. 1 at the prison, 6000 William Head Rd. Rubin has been involved as an actor with two plays at the minimum-security prison before, including last season’s Gormenghast. This year she was asked to direct, and she gladly accepted.

On this, the 75th anniversary of the publication of the novel, Rubin’s post-industrial adaptation takes a unique look at the tale. The story and dialogue remain true to the source material, but costumes and sets are meant to reflect a more contemporary working-class sensibility. The tone of the play touches on subjects more common to Kyle Wells/News staff recent newspaper headlines Actor Bronwyn Steinberg plays than Tolkien’s Middle-earth. “It relates to the devastation an elven queen in Kate Rubin's that can happen from greed,” post-industrial take on The Hobbit Rubin said. “The environmen- being performed at William Head tal devastation, the social Institution from Oct. 12 to Nov. 10. devastation, things breaking down so that there becomes these The cast is made up of inmates, creatures like Gollum, who has plus three professional actresses lost his humanity.” who are brought in to play the

female roles. Monica Prendergast, Anne Cirillo and Bronwyn Steinberg have come in as professional actors and two professionals are also involved in the crew: Carole Klemm, the designer, and puppeteer Tim Gosley. Admitting she was at first a bit nervous to work with the prisoners, Steinberg, who plays the elven queen, among other parts, said the experience has been overwhelmingly positive and has reinvigorated her love of theatre and its more human aspects. She has been amazed to see the enthusiasm and commitment of the inmates. “Even in just the few weeks that I’ve been involved you can see they’ve been building confidence and also just a sense of ownership and agency,” Steinberg said. “You can see them just growing through the show and through the process.”

Rubin too, said it’s amazing to see the transformative power of theatre and just how beneficial the process of putting on a play is for the inmates. Many come into the process shy and unsure, Rubin said, but by the end are proud to have been a part of something positive and productive. “They want to give and they don’t get that opportunity very much,” Rubin said. “Especially someone who feels shame for what they’ve done, and if they’ve come through that shame, there’s a huge need to give.” Tickets are $20 and are available at Ticket Rocket, 2-1609 Blanshard St., My Chosen Cafe, 4480 Happy Valley Rd., online at TicketRocket. org or by phone at 250-391-6291.

Chargers golfers slip in B.C. tie-breaker

Omwenga doubles Adam Campbell well-suited to task Travis Paterson News staff

Kenyan Thomas Omwenga won the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon for the second year in a row on Sunday, but his record stands from 2011. Omwenga finished the course on an “unseasonally warm” day with a time of two hours, 20 minutes and 41 seconds, which is six minutes slower than his record of 2:13:44 set in 2011. Gilbert Kiptoo, another Kenyan, came second at 2:27:01. Portland’s Hallie Janssen was the top woman with a time of 2:47:03, just 33 seconds ahead of Nadyia Fry (Invermere), the second-overall woman. The two were 14th and 15th overall, with Victoria’s Catrin Jones the third woman and 19th overall finisher in a time of 2:49:02. Easily the most fashionable effort from Sunday’s 33rd annual Victoria Marathon was Adam Campbell’s impressive time of 2:35:53. Campbell, a lawyer and ultramarathoner from Victoria, managed not to overheat under autumn sun while wearing a suit, blazer and tie. He should qualify for the Guinness World Records fastest marathon in a suit, breaking the previous time 3:24.

Thomas Omwenga, left, Gilbert Kiptoo and Philip Samoei take the early lead at the 33rd Annual GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon on Oct. 7. Other notables include Vancouver’s Graeme Wilson, third overall in the marathon. Wilson was the top B.C. runner and the top men’s master with a time of 2:29:17, winning the B.C. marathon championship. First time marathoners, Nikki Jomha and Greg Robbins, two locals featured in the News’ fall series On the Run, finished the race in 4:21:26 and 3:57:40, respectively. Barefoot runner Derek Shaw, also part of On the Run, completed the halfmarathon in 2:09:47. Natasha Fraser outdueled Lucy Njeri and broke her own course record in the half-marathon from 2011, with a new record of 1:14:06 to Njeri’s 1:14:27. Rutto Kibet (Edmonton) was the top

male in the half-marathon with a time of 1:04:27, with Victoria’s Geoff Martinson running to second in 1:05:39. Local Jim Finlayson was the top master runner in the half-marathon, his first run in the over-40 master category, finishing in 1:08:51, eighth overall. Chris Winter (Vancouver) won the eight kilometre road race in 24:13. Rachel Cliff (Vancouver) was the top woman at 27:43 Registration numbers: 2,056 registered for the marathon, 5,503 for the half, 2,844 in the eight-km, 1,100 in the Thrifty Foods Kids Run, for a total of 11,503.

Runnin’ Rebel on record pace Travis Paterson News staff

File photo

Rebels running back Greg Morris is eyeing the BCFC record for total yards rushed in a season.

Greg Morris can expect some added attention this weekend. Breaking a 13-year-old Canadian Junior Football League rushing record will do that. The Westshore Rebels running back carried the ball 24 times against the Kamloops Broncos, in Kamloops on Saturday, to an astounding 405 yards, scoring four touchdowns along the way, including a 91-yard scamper. Morris now leads the league in rushing with a total of 1,471 yards and 17 touchdowns scored. The Rebels move to seven wins and two losses, second place in the B.C. Football Conference standings. The win also eliminated the Broncos from their playoff hopes. With one regular season game remaining, all that’s left to decide for the Rebels is home advantage in the upcoming playoff semifinal against the Langley Rams. This Saturday the Rebels visit the Vancouver Island Raiders, while the Rams face the Okanagan Sun. Playing against the Raiders in the final game of Morris’ career year is fitting. It was with the Raiders that current B.C. Lions running back Andrew Harris

broke the 400-yard mark during the 2008 playoffs. And even though Saturday’s game bears no outcome on the Raiders’ plans (they’ll host the Sun in the other semifinal), Morris and the Rebels can expect a strong defensive effort from the Raiders. Morris needs to run the ball 122 yards to break Matt Medwick’s BCFC rushing record of 1,592 yards in a season, set with the Valley Huskers in 2000. However, five yards is all Morris needs to take Harris’ spot behind Medwick on the season list, ahead of Harris’ best season in 2009. Surprisingly, the previous single game rushing record in the BCFC, now held by Morris, was not Harris’, but was actually 338 yards, set by Eric Scott of the Richmond Raiders in 1985. Harris broke 338 in the playoffs, but not during the regular season. Morris also added 50 yards to the previous Canadian record of 355-yards, accomplished by Craig Carter of the Windsor AKO Fratmen in 1999. Fourteen of Morris’ 17 touchdowns this year are from the rush, which likely puts him out of reach of Harris’ 2009 BCFC league record of 20 TDs rushed, 24 TDs in total. sports@vicnews.com

The Camosun Chargers men’s golf team is going to the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Golf National Championships. The Chargers led the PacWest conference with a five-stroke lead going into the fourth and final tournament over Thanksgiving. That’s where the host Fraser Valley Cascades defeated the Chargers in a tie-breaker to win the 2012 PacWest championship. Despite slipping to second place in the season’s standings the Chargers will attend the nationals, Oct. 15 to 19, hosted at the Oshawa Golf Club by Durham College in Oshawa, Ont. “It was a tough weekend for us,” Chargers coach John Randle said in the team’s press release. “It came right down to the wire and we didn’t get it done.” After the first round of the UFV Invitational at Chilliwack Golf and Country Club, the Chargers led the cumulative season standings by nine strokes, with one round to go to win the championship. That’s when the lead crumbled. UFV caught the Chargers on Day 2 and, with a cumulative season total of 2,354 strokes each after four tournaments, the two went to a tie-breaker, which UFV won. “All things considered, the guys played hard and conducted themselves as gentlemen and they represented Camosun with class and skill,” Randle said. The Chargers settled for silver in the team standings but Jarred Callbeck, who was twice named the PacWest golfer of the week this year, won the men’s gold medal. Callbeck shot a cumulative total of 578 over 144 holes in the fall season, five strokes better than Aaron Pauls of UFV. The Chargers men’s team are Callbeck (Claremont secondary), Jared Hundza (Pacific Christian School), Kevin Walz (Kwalikum secondary, Qualicum), Grant Maskiewich (Smithers secondary) and Kevin Bredy (Sir Winston Churchill, Calgary, Alta). sports@vicnews.com

Victoria Royals Logan Nelson, No. 19, and Brandon Magee, No. 18, celebrate a preseason goal versus the Vancouver Giants. Don Denton News staff

Until the buzzer sounds First-place Victoria Royals finding identity Travis Paterson News staff

Call them clutch, call them competitive, call them whatever you want, the Victoria Royals are winning. Through the first eight games the Royals had six wins, half of those came in extra time. Forward Logan Nelson is one of the most visible reasons the team is off to a great start. The 19 year old is playing noticably more physical and is chipping in timely goals, like the one he scored to tie the game against the Tri City Americans with 35 seconds left on Saturday to make it 3-3. He then scored the only goal of the shootout to cap a come-from-behind 4-3 victory. It was his second shootout winner this year. “I’ve been lucky in the shootout, getting bounces I guess,” Nelson said. All in all, it was a solid three games in three nights road trip for the Royals, as they bounced back from a 5-3 loss to the Spokane Chiefs on Friday to beat the Americans Saturday and Vancouver Giants 2-1 on Sunday. “I really liked the adjustments

we made on Saturday and the resiliency we showed (after Friday’s loss),” Lowry said. “We had a goal called back on the powerplay but came back and scored again, and that’s a good sign.” Saturday was also the second time this season Nelson scored the only goal of the shootout, thereby winning the game for the Royals (in partnership with goalie Patrik Polivka, who has let in zero goals on six shootout attempts). Nelson’s other shootout goal was against the Kamloops Blazers on Sept. 28, also a 4-3 win. “We’re much better at staying positive and if they get a goal, we know it’s not the end of the world,” Nelson said. “We’re not going to give up until the buzzer goes, especially when the other team thinks they’ve got the win.” Without Steven Hodges, who was perhaps the team’s best player in the first three games before getting injured, the recent success of Nelson and the Royals is all the more impressive. As of Wednesday morning, Nelson was second in team scoring with three goals and six assists, behind Alex Gogolev’s three goals and eight assists. “It’s been up to the older guys to pick it up. We definitely miss Steve in the lineup,” Nelson said.

“Gogolev has been great. He’s got eyes in the back of his head finding guys out there.” With Hodges out, Nelson moved off of Gogolev’s line and, onto a line with Jamie Crooks and Austin Carroll, though Nelson and Gogolev have skated together on the powerplay and with the extra attacker. “I’ve been able to be compatible with (Crooks) and (Carroll) and game-by-game, we’re getting better,” Nelson said. Trend or no trend, coming back from behind and winning in extra time is the biggest difference from last year’s Royals, and coach Dave Lowry isn’t picky right now about the way his team wins. “This is a team searching for an identity right now,” Lowry said, “coming from behind, winning close games, winning in shootouts.

Lift Passes to Mount Washington! Don Denton/News staff

Riders from the 2012 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, L-R, Kyle Slavin and Matt Webb exchange high-fives after finishing the ride at Victoria's Centennial Square last Friday afternoon.

Tour de Rock raises cool million Travelleing 1,100 kilometres and 27 communities, this year’s Tour de Rock team has raised $1.02 million and counting. The money goes toward funding pediatric cancer research and Camp Goodtimes, a summer camp for kids with cancer. The team rode their final few kilometres to a hero’s welcome at Centennial Square last Friday, where supporters and public well-wishers gathered to pay tribute to the riders, all but four

of whom were members of a police organization. All but two of the 17 riders hailed from the Capital Region, which led fundraising efforts this year. About 60 per cent of the total came from Greater Victoria. Tracie Clayton, with the Canadian Cancer Society, said money keeps coming in after the fact and the final tally won’t be known until closer to November.

Of all the generosity demonstrated across Vancouver Island, Clayton noted the “mindblowing” $101,000 raised by Reynolds secondary in Saanich. It still brings a tear to her eye just talking about it. “Kids helping kids. It doesn’t get any sweeter than that,” Clayton said. To donated to Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, see tourderock.ca. editor@saanichnews.com
