FRUSTRATED AIRLINE PASSENGERS wait to hear if their flight will be able to take off from Comox Valley Airport. PHOTO COURTESY CTV VANCOUVER ISLAND the weather wasn’t unusual for the Comox Valley, and noted he’s concerned about further flight landing problems this fall and winter. “The weather certainly isn’t unusual; what’s unusual right now is with the instrument approaches to the runways,” said Bigelow. “There are restrictions right now on the instrument approaches, which preclude aircraft from descending as low as they normally would. “These higher minima will pose challenges for the operators coming in and out of Comox, and it’s a concern for us … as we approach the winter season. “We will expect more problems than we would otherwise have because of these higher approach

limits.” Col. Jim Benninger, wing commander for 19 Wing Comox, which is in charge of airport operations, said two issues are causing the higher approach limits; one is the height of some trees around the airport — which is an ongoing issue — and the other is some work on the runway. “We have the issue with the over-height obstacles, the natural growth in the area, which has caused an elevation of the minimum altitude to which pilots can descend before they have to look out the window and see if they can see the airport or not,” he explained, adding the work on runway improvements has shortened the main runway from 10,000 to 7,000 feet.

“The net result of both of them raises the height of the decision altitude to 500 feet (from 200 feet).” He added if pilots can’t see out of the aircraft at the decision altitude height due to lower cloud, or any other factors, they won’t land on that approach. They can try again from a slightly different approach or detour to another airport. According to Benninger, the runway work is expected to last until the end of March. Tree remediation is not scheduled to be complete until December 2013 due to environmental considerations.

Airplane flights scrubbed Comox resident Geoff Russell was unimpressed when his family couldn’t fly out of the Comox Valley Airport for two days on the weekend — and stranded passengers will likely be more common this fall and winter. “The weather was no worse Friday night, all day Saturday, than it is on many, many occasions,” Russell told the Record. “I was quite annoyed at the time and it certainly created a lot of inconvenience for a lot of people. “We were all told it was weather-related, and it was no different to a normal winter’s day in the Valley.” Russell’s son, daughterin-law and their two small children, were scheduled to catch a WestJet flight to Calgary Friday evening. The plane was unable to land, and returned to Calgary. The family tried to leave again Saturday to no avail. Russell drove them to Victoria early Sunday morning so they could catch a flight. A number of flights were rerouted or cancelled Friday and Saturday and again Monday. Comox Valley Airport CEO Fred Bigelow agreed

es we would go through our routines again and again and again. It was pretty intense,” said Rhodes, adding she was proud of the results at the end of “an amazing journey.” Originally from Port Alberni, the 31-yearold Rhodes has been pole dancing at Femme Natale for three years. “I’m definitely an Island girl,” said Rhodes, who has lived in Courtenay for over 12 years. Rhodes said she got into pole dancing when going to the gym to stay healthy and get fit didn’t work for her. “So I tried pole dancing and man, did that make a huge difference. I’ve always loved dancing, my mom is a belly dance teacher, and it’s a really good way to keep in shape and do what you like doing. Now I’m just totally in love with it.”

Comox Valley competitors stepped onto the national stage in style at the Canadian pole fitness championships at the Edgewater Casino in Vancouver. The fifth annual event (formerly known as Miss Pole Dance Canada and sponsored by the Canadian Pole Dance Association) attracted 40 competitors, including Nadyne Moldowan and Natalee Rhodes, who are instructors at Femme Natale Pole Fitness in Cumberland. Moldowan, who qualified by winning the B.C. championship last month in Campbell River, finished a close second Oct. 13 in the 12-person Pro division. Rhodes, who finished third at the B.C.s, did not place in her 10-person Amateur division. Competing at her second nationals, Moldowan noted, “The girl who won (Veronica Salimano of Vancouver) was the girl who got second at the regionals in B.C. She beat me by, I think, five and a half points.” The winner of the People’s Choice Award at last year’s nationals, Moldowan had nothing but compliments for Salimano. “Oh man, her routine was absolutely flawless. It was beautiful.” Modowan, who operates Femme Natale in partnership with Natalie Fustier, said rou-

to perform for an equal amount of time on spinning and stationary poles. She said judges award points for presentation, strength, flexibility and fluidity. The 28-year-old has been pole dancing for four years, the same amount of time she has spent in the Valley since moving from Alberta. Rhodes, who has just become an instructor at Femme Natale, said her first trip to the Canadian championships was, “Amazing. Intense, but amazing.” Rhodes went to the nationals as a wild card and is still waiting to see where she ranked in her division. Like Moldowan, Rhodes worked extremely hard to prepare for the nationals. “(I trained) in the studio two to three times a day; before work, during classes, and after class-

Comox Valley‘family’ objecting to being divided Scott Stanfield Record Staff

If Monday’s public hearing is any indication, then nobody in the entire riding of Vancouver Island North favours the new map being proposed by the Electoral Boundaries Commission for B.C. The proposed redistribution effectively splits the Comox Valley with a line through Courtenay. The eastern reaches of the city, Comox, Area B and parts of Area C would remain in Vancouver Island North. West Courtenay, Cumberland, Area A and some of Area C would transfer to the Nanaimo-Alberni riding. Powell River would also become part of Vancouver Island North. Dividing the “tight-knit community” of Courtenay would spawn negative consequences, said Vancouver Island North MP John Duncan, represented by Leonard Landry Monday at Crown Isle. Duncan feels the suggested boundary “ignores communities of interest” that, although separate in terms of geography, are nevertheless “seamlessly integrated.” Many residents in the Comox Valley and Campbell River live in one community but shop in both — which Duncan said is not the case in Powell River. He considers the latter part of the Sunshine Coast. Redistributing federal electoral districts provides geographic areas where voters elect members of Parliament. The process occurs every 10 years based on census results. Commissions in each province assess demographic changes and make recommendations for boundary alterations to achieve better representation in Parliament. The commission is proposing to add six new electoral districts — five on the mainland and one on the Island — to the 36 existing

THE MAP ABOVE shows how the Comox Valley would be split. At right is the current federal riding. federal ridings in B.C. Duncan said the proposed boundary change would add population from the mainland, which “dilutes the value of an extra seat coming to Vancouver Island.” And treats Vancouver Island as an afterthought. “These concerns are serious and legitimate,” Landry said on behalf of Duncan. “The Comox Valley is a single community,” Kathryn Askew said. “Please maintain the integrity of the Comox Valley. We are one family.” Speakers noted a divided

Courtenay would mean half the residents would need to travel south to see the area MP. “Why would that be imposed upon us?” said Courtenay Mayor Larry Jangula, adding the proposed change could shift the MP’s office back to Campbell River. Having two MPs will “ensure duplication,” said Askew, who feels their jobs would become more challenging, time-consuming and frustrating. Lifetime Valley resident Glen Sanford has seen elec-

toral boundaries change over the years but said the Comox Valley has always remained intact. Former Area C director Kel Kelly asked the commission to maintain the area as a “geopolitical unit.” He suggests a Comox Valley-Alberni riding makes more sense than the proposed change in terms of geography, overlapping interests such as coal mines and a “shared highway network that doesn’t exist between us and the Sunshine Coast.” Project Watershed vicechair Dr. Betty Donaldson

noted the limitations of dividing geographical areas according to north-south or east-west lines. Point Roberts south of Vancouver, for example, “has become an expensive mistake,” she said. Another federal riding adds another layer of governance, added Donaldson, noting the Courtenay estuary is already governed by four local governments, two federal departments and the K’ómoks First Nation. “I cannot imagine how any of us will be better served if any of our ter-

ritories are further subdivided,” Donaldson said. “We will become the short tail of the dog, whether that dog is Vancouver Island North riding or Nanaimo-Port Alberni riding.” Powell River Mayor Dave Formosa and Powell RiverSunshine Coast MLA Nicholas Simons both oppose the idea of splitting the lower and upper Sunshine Coast into two electoral districts. Further hearings were scheduled for Nanaimo Tuesday and Victoria Wednesday. reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com

RCMP DISCOVERED MARIJUANA when they searched a home in Royston recently.

Royston man arrested A Royston man remains in custody after Comox Valley RCMP found a sophisticated marijuanagrowing operation and two guns recently. The RCMP with the assistance of the Emergency Response Team searched a home Oct. 1 in the 3900 block of Harrison Place in Royston. Marijuana was located in various stages of production throughout the home. A semi-automatic rifle and a loaded .45-calibre handgun were found. Seth Nathaniel Wing, 31, of Royston faces charges of Unlawful Production of a Controlled Substance, Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance for the

Չ Val’s Choice

Purpose of Trafficking, Possession of a Loaded, Restricted Firearm and Unlawful Storage of a Firearm. His next scheduled court appearance is Oct. 18. “This serves as a reminder to the public that marijuana grow operations, including medicinal grow operations, often include a criminal element and the potential of violence,” said Cpl. Paul Douglas of the Comox Valley RCMP’s drug section.

Minister of Social Development Moira Stilwell paid a Thursday visit to the Comox Valley to kick off a monthlong tour of B.C. during Community Living Month. Marking a 14-year tradition since October was first proclaimed as such, the Province and communities are working together to raise awareness and to celebrate people with developmental disabilities as valuable and contributing members of society. Stilwell visited Vancouver Island Community Connections, a housing project and a home where two young developmentally dis-

abled people co-exist. “It’s inspiring to see that people who are living with developmental disabilities want the same things we all want,” Stilwell said. “They want to work to the maximum level that they’re able, and they want to contribute to the community and be seen as full citizens in their community. I think there’s some great things happening here.” The ministry and Community Living BC are progressing towards improving services for people with developmental disabilities and their families. As of Oct. 1, Stilwell said government has increased the income maximum up to $800 per month for

I think that’s progressive and worthwhile. It’s a modest change but it’s an important change.” reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Members of the Comox Valley RCMP’s Traffic Section and Rural Section met with School District 71 representatives and the principal of Miracle Beach School recently. Discussions were in relation to ongoing concerns related to the operation of allterrain vehicles across the playground area and sports field at the school. There is an intricate trail system in the area of the school and there are several access points to school property from these trails. Dirt bike operators have been riding across the school’s playground area and sports field.

Along with the damage done to the grass field, school officials are concerned that a child may be struck by one of these vehicles. Section 4 of the Motor Vehicle (All Terrain) Act states that, “A person must not operate an all terrain vehicle in a careless, reckless or negligent manner so as to endanger or cause injury or damage to a person or property of another.” The Comox Valley RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the per-

less protected during the working day from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. ••• In light of changes to rules concerning beer gardens, a Special Occasion Liquor Licences workshop will be held. It will involve staff and police. ••• Dialect Communications Group designed the new Village website for $16,000 plus tax. The website, cumberland.ca, was officially launched Wednesday.

$25,000 towards necessary repairs for a watermain chlorination project at Comox Lake Road. The Village is having a difficult time maintaining a chlorine residual on the watermain that was installed to service the Comox Valley Economic Development Centre visitor centre. ••• The volunteer fire department needs help with day shifts. It has lost a few members, rendering the Village



Miracle Beach School officials worried about students

Cumberland council voted 3-1 in favour of Coun. Roger Kishi’s motion to consider participating in the investigation of wastewater infrastructure options, as requested by the K’ómoks First Nation. “We need to move forward on this,” Kishi said at last week’s meeting. The band has new interests in possibilities concerning wastewater infrastructure expansions in the southern reaches of the Valley. It has been given approval to investigate options through a public-private partnership, which Coun. Kate Greening “does not fully trust.” The partnership would include local governments interested in the potential for a new wastewater treatment facility in the Kensington Island Properties area of Union Bay. ••• Council voted in favour of a Coun. Conner Copeman motion to keep the Valley intact with regards to a proposed restructuring of federal electoral boundaries that would divide Courtenay into two ridings. Courtenay council resolved to present to the Federal Electoral

Boundaries Commission its desire and need for the city to be considered a unified body represented by one electoral riding. Kishi finds it strange to be “carving up the Comox Valley,” noting Cumberland would become part of a riding extending from the Village’s side of the Courtenay River to Tofino. The commission heard from the public Monday at Crown Isle. ••• Despite the installation of water meters, data collected since February indicates consumption remains considerably high at some properties. The previous council had approved mock billing, which was intended to provide homeowners an idea of how consumption will translate into actual costs. It was found, however, that rates could not be estimated without data. Council approved staff’s option of collecting data for another year, with billing to start in 2014. ••• The Village and Trilogy Properties will each contribute

OPERATION HIGH JUMP was again a success in its 20th year thanks to the dedication of the athletes and volunteers.

Special athletes jumping for joy Operation High Jump 20th annual event in Comox Valley The sun was shining and spirits were high during the 20th annual Operation High Jump, the track and field event for mentally and physically challenged people of the Comox Valley and Powell River. The day was filled with numerous track and field events such as 50- and 100-metre dashes, wheelchair push, long jump, high jump, and our most popular event, the ball throw. Besides the more traditional events there are fun games such as sack races, water balloon toss, and a tug of war. The success of Operation High Jump is truly because of the volunteers and the participants. Their joy and

smiling faces are the inspiration that keeps this event going, year after year. The Spirit Award, which is presented to the team or individual that has the most positive attitude towards the day and their fellow athletes, was presented to Vanier’s Life Skills program. They represented their school with pride both in the events they participated in, as well as the way they encouraged each other throughout the day. Operation High Jump was once again supported generously by the Kiwanis Club of Courtenay. The Kiwanis club members are fantastic volunteers and are a great presence at the event. Other volunteers helped at the track and in the kitchen. Thank you to Quality Foods for donating all the supplies needed to make 140 lunches and to Water Pure and Simple for supplying

much-needed water.

Get ready for the Big One Great BC Shakeout – happening at 10:18 a.m. this Thursday WITH DAVE STEVENS at the podium, the capacity crowd at the Extravaganza Italiana was ready with bidding cards.

Rotarians really raise funds The Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial held its signature fundraiser on Saturday. The Extravaganza Italiana was a great success. Once again, the generous people of the Comox Valley responded with donations and purchased tickets so they could help the club raise funds for service projects. The Cumberland Recreation Centre was filled with 280 participants who enjoyed good food

prepared by Custom Gourmet chef Dawn McRae and her staff and generally had lots of fun. Once again, David Stevens and his spouse Kathy conducted a lively live auction. The crowd was so generous and got into the spirit of the fundraiser that a bucket of rocks was auctioned by David that earned a winning bid exceeding $500. — Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial

Cumberlander honoured Cumberland resident Linda Halliday-Sumner was honoured by Rotary Cumberland on Saturday evening for her service to others. An acknowledged expert in sexual abuse, sexual assault and sexual harassment, she was a victim of sexual abuse at the age of six years. Halliday-Sumner published her first book, The Silent Scream, in 1981. The book is still being used today worldwide for training, personal development and in sex offender treatment. Because she has placed service above self during her career, the Rotary Club has named her a Paul Harris Fellow and presented her with a framed certificate and pin of identification at the club’s eighth annual Extravaganza Ital-

Just over one year ago, a magnitude 6.4 earthquake was felt throughout the Comox Valley (and beyond). That heightened the need for everyone to participate in the BC Earthquake Alliance Society’s third annual provincewide earthquake drill — the Great BC ShakeOut — at 10:18 a.m. this Thursday. The drill is intended to enhance public awareness of the earthquake hazard in B.C. and to encourage personal preparedness. The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is committed to participating in this drill and would like all residents, businesses, agencies and associations to participate, too. Over 400,000 British Columbians have registered since the Great BC ShakeOut started.

School classes, families, office staff or individuals can participate by using the Drop, Cover and Hold On method: • Drop to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!). • Take cover by getting under a sturdy desk or table. • Hold on to it until the shaking stops (approximately two minutes). Natural Resources Canada (NRC) has identified B.C. as being located in one of the most seismically active regions in the country. The NRC advises that the threat of a major earthquake is real, and that in other parts of the world an increased awareness about what to do during an earthquake had been proven to reduce injuries and deaths.

The Great British Columbia ShakeOut drill is modeled after the highly successful California ShakeOut drill, now in its fourth year. The CVRD encourages individuals and organizations to register at www.shakeoutbc.ca to be count-

ed in the drill and to access ShakeOut BC materials to learn more about emergency preparedness. For more information, visit www.shakeoutbc.ca or e-mail info@ shakeoutbc.ca. — Comox Valley Regional District

Singers back for third time The Ontario duo known as Dala is coming back to the Comox Valley, this time for an intimate performance at the Cumberland Hotel after two previous outings at MusicFest. “If you haven’t been to any of our shows at the Cumberland,” says MusicFest’s Doug Cox, “you should come! Cresslynn and her staff turn the pub into a lovely folk-club concert room that is a perfect venue for these shows.” Sheila Carabine and Amanda Walther first met at Mary Ward Catholic Secondary School at a high school band practice. Quickly afterwards, their friendship blossomed and they formed Dala in the summer of 2002. Their “innate understanding of music” and “vocal range” helped propel them towards signing a five-year artist development

deal with Big Bold Sun Music in November 2003, and in April 2005, Dala released their first album, This Moment Is a Flash. On Aug. 8, 2005, Dala signed its first major record deal with Universal Music. Soon thereafter, the band released its first major album, Angels & Thieves, containing five original songs and five covers. Immediately afterwards, Dala went out on tour to support the album, including a brief stint in early 2007 opening for Tom Cochrane. Returning to the studio after the tour, the band released their album Who Do You Think You Are with the lead single Anywhere Under the Moon entering Much More Music’s rotation. Dala finished 2007 opening for Matthew Good on a cross-Canada tour. Over the course

of their career, Dala has contributed cover songs to several compilations. Neil Young’s A Man Needs a Maid was released on Cinnamon Girl — Women Artists Cover Neil Young. Cinnamon Girl also included the duo’s cover of Young’s Ohio. The duo released their fourth album, Everyone Is Someone, on June 9, 2009. The lead single Levi Blues was nominated in the Mainstream Adult Contemporary category at the 2010 Canadian Radio Music Awards. The duo taped a performance for PBS in February 2010, which aired in June as Girls from the North Country. The live CD and DVD for Girls From The North Country earned Dala the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year. The live album was nominated for a 2011

Local fiddler nominated Local musician Trent Freeman has just been nominated as Solo Instrumental Artist of the Year by the Canadian Folk Music Awards (CFMA). His Rock, Paper, Scissors CD was produced by Paul Keim at his Dove Creek Studios and the music is exciting, and jazzy, a departure from traditional fiddle music. Freeman’s string quartet, The Fretless, has also been nominated in three categories including Instrumental Group of the Year. It has been an exciting start to the fall season as the band just won Best Instrumental

Album for their new CD Waterbound at the Western Canadian Music Awards. The CFMA awards ceremony takes place in St. John, N.B. in November. Trent won’t be able to attend, as the band will be on an Quality Clothing Affordable Prices

Quintet has some brass

A VETERAN FOLKIE, Tom Lewis brings his songs to a house concert this Saturday in the Comox Valley.

Folk headliner in house concert His repertoire is by turns reflective, dramatic and humorous The Gardeners Green Folk Music Club in Merville will host a house concert Oct. 20 with Tom Lewis, a performer who has for many years headlined folk festivals and maritime events all over England, Europe and North America. Tom’s repertoire, from traditional shanties to songs fashioned out of his own seafaring background, is by turns reflective, dramatic and humorous. Tom was born in Northern Ireland and that Celtic heritage is obvious in his clear, strong voice, evoking quiet sorrow for a fisherman lost to the sea just as honestly as it powers out a shanty “to be heard above the gales.” Tom accompanies himself on button accordion and ukulele — but it’s that powerful vocal style and infectious humour that make him a true entertainer. He is a 24-year veteran of Her Majesty’s Royal Naval diesel submarines. His songs cover a wide range of nautical topics, from life on board H.M. ships, through the loneliness and lure of the sea, to traditional shanties and classic nautical poetry set to his own, and others’ melodies. For more information, check out www. tomlewis.net. As this is a house concert, held in a pri-

vate home, seating is limited and tickets must be reserved in advance. The ticket price is $20 per person and includes hot drinks and a big dessert buffet. Gardeners Green events are non-profit and all the money taken at the door goes directly to the performer. The club will also hold a popular charity raffle. Reservations can be made by ringing 250337-5337. — Gardeners Green Folk Music Club

Michael is the music director at Dover Bay Secondary School in Nanaimo, but is better known to jazz fans in this area as the lead trumpet for the Arrowsmith Big Band. Michael began playing the trumpet when he was 11 and was soon going to the high school at lunch to play with the jazz band. While still in high school Michael performed for Prince Charles, Princess Diana, and Dizzy Gillespie. Michael’s formal training began at the University of Victoria where he studied with Louis Ranger and Ian McDougall. At UVic Michael earned his B.Mus, and M.Mus (performance). Mike brings his quintet to Courtenay on Oct. 18 featuring the exciting and creative Dan Craven on tenor saxophone — a friendship that goes back to

COMOX VALLEY QUARTET the Lincoln Foster Band will open this Thursday for Wide Mouth Mason at the Avalanche. PHOTO BY VIKTOR DAVARE

Quartet opening forWide Mouth The Lincoln Foster Band is truly a band that is not to be missed. They will perform songs that are currently being played on several WesternCanadian rock radio stations including JET-FM as they open for Wide Mouth Mason on Oct. 18 at the Avalanche.

Their high-energy, in-yourface brand of rock and roll takes you back to the groundbreaking days of punk blended with Rush-esque nuances, the headiness of Led Zeppelin and the emotion of Foo Fighters. The band is Lincoln Foster

on vocals and rhythm guitar, John Rankin on bass and vocals, Mike Bush on lead guitar and Jordan Bernard on drums. For more information about LFB, visit www.lincolnfosterband.com. — Lincoln Foster Band

Neuls, Dickie both exhibiting artwork Local artists Gail Neuls and Shirley Dickie are launching their first art show together Oct. 20 and 21 at the Filberg Heritage Lodge. While both women are well-known painters in the Comox Valley, this is the first time the public will have an opportunity to experience their distinct styles in a shared venue. Neuls and Dickie have each created a painting inspired by the same photograph. These works will be revealed at their showing. Dickie is a selftaught artist whose educational training comes from life experience. “Composition, colour and form come to me naturally,” she says. “I paint intuitively often creating the work as I go along. This new collection is reminiscent of my older style with surprising results.” Neuls was introduced to the world of abstraction through North Island College, where she thoroughly enjoyed the new experience and can now benefit from the freedom

to be able to express herself. Her stylist landscapes are displayed in a decorative manner and her love for color creates a sense of joy and celebration that is

very much a part of her inspiration. Neuls and Dickie have worked hard to be able to put this show and sale on for the public. They are very excit-

ed to be able to exhibit their paintings together at the Filberg Lodge located at 61 Filberg Rd. in Comox. It will open at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. both days.

Author Allan Safarik will visit the Courtenay Library to discuss and read from Bluebacks and Silver Brights: A Lifetime in the B.C. Fisheries from Bounty to Plunder. Safarik will read from the book, cowritten with his father Norman, this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Part business story, part social history and part eco memoir, the book is a collection of adventures on the Pacific coast and tells the story of a man who spent a lifetime working in the fishing industry. Norman, 93, was born in Vancouver and worked in the fish business for over 65 years, running Vancouver Shellfish & Fish Company. Containing stories about the hardworking fishermen who risked their lives to catch fish as well as about the many colourful characters in the industry, Bluebacks and Silver Brights documents a way of life lost forever. Safarik’s retrospective also turns an eye towards the present day; in his opening chapter “After the catch” he describes a natural resource teetering on the edge of extinction. The authors passionately highlight a number of other current issues including how the devastation of Pacific herring has led to the destruction of the food chain, and how the current practice of farming fish on B.C.’s

coast is “akin to growing wheat in flowerpots in Saskatchewan.” Bluebacks and Silver Brights is a riveting memoir set during the pinnacle of West Coast fishing, and it is a book as likely to stir up nostalgia from Anytime is Prime Time

the Gulf of Georgia to Prince Rupert. For more information, drop by the library at 300 Sixth St., call 250-334-3369, ext. 2 or visit www.virl.bc.ca. This is a free program. — Courtenay Library Gift Cards Available upon Request

Ivy Madeleine Wagner Fed. 3, 1917 - Sept. 30, 2012

We are flooded with feelings of sadness, joy, gratitude and love at the passing of our dearest Ivy. As we mourn our loss, we are strengthened in the knowing that a multitude are greeting her at that place of perfect peace. Left with fond memories are her daughter Linda (Jorgen Bysse), son Smokey (Cheryl), grandchildren Alli, Andrew, Geoff, Raphael, Kelsey, Leona, Kathy, Jacqui, Niki, Jordan, 13 great grandchildren, sister Gladys Strom of Alberta as well as a host of nephews and nieces. Ivy was predeceased by her husband Gordon, son Keith, daughter Shirley, brothers Willy and Ralph Harvey and sister Mae Field. Ivy was born and raised in the coal mining country of the Crowsnest Pass. She had an immediate love for school as a child and went on to become a teacher. In early 1941, she met her future husband Gordon, a R.C.A.F. Navigator, and married in Sept. of that year. In 1944, she moved to the Comox Valley where she and Gordon raised their four children on a farm on Cumberland Road. In the late 50â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the family moved to a newly built home in Comox where Ivy resumed her teaching career. Ivy found immense satisfaction and joy as a kindergarten teacher and enjoyed recalling the many wonderful and sometimes humorous experiences she shared with her students. Involvement with the Comox United Womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Auxiliary, reading, crafting, and singing while she played the organ were some of her favourite interests. Above all, her greatest love was spending countless hours with her grandchildren and great grandchildren at her home on Beach Drive in Comox. In Ivyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s later years, she received loving supportive care at Stevenson Place and from her caregiver Leanne. Over the past 3 years, her life was enriched by the residents and exceptional staff of the Comox Valley Seniors Village. Great love was given and received for which the family is eternally grateful. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Comox Valley Funeral Home, 1101 Ryan Rd., Courtenay on Friday October 19, 2012 at 2 P.M.

Malcolm Martin MacNeil

Prins, John Michel, Captain (Ret)

August 14, 1933 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; October 9, 2012 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Malcolm Martin MacNeil on October 9, 2012 in Comox, BC. Mac was predeceased by his sister, Mary and his brothers, Hector and Peter. Mac is survived by his loving wife, Theresa of 50 years, son Peter (Jody) of Mississauga, Ontario and daughter Catherine (George) of Calgary, Alberta, grandchildren; Jordache, Hunter and Courtney, sister Anne (Odie) Bonnell of Sydney, Nova Scotia, nieces and nephews; Shawn MacNeil, Peter MacNeil, Peter Fedora, Alan Fedora, Eddie Fedora, George Fedora, David Fedora, Sandy MacNeil, Betty Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neil, Nancy Briand, Avitas Shield, Gary Bonnell, Karen Bonnell and Darlene MacQuin. Mac worked at several hospitals across Canada prior to settling in the Comox Valley in 1957, where he worked at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital for 41 years until retiring in 1998. He was a man who truly loved his job and the patients he served. In Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leisure time he enjoyed bowling and golfing. He was an avid Montreal Canadians Fan and later in life a Canucks Fan. Mac had a great sense of humour and was much loved and respected in his community. He also enjoyed his long walks, a great rivalry with his son-in-law and cheering on the BC Lions and Calgary Stampeders.

October 2, 1948 to October 9 2012 With great sadness we announce the death of Michel Prins. Born at home in Amstelveen, The Netherlands to Jan Prins and Elisabeth Petiet, he died at home in Courtenay. Survived by his wife Terry, son Fraser and daughter Simone, brothers Bert (Sheila), Paul, Ron (Maureen) and sister Madeleine. Michel attended Vancouver School of Art where he honed his skill as a painter and allround creative person. Michel spent most of his working life with BC Ferries, starting as a deck-hand and working his way to become a captain. He worked in many places up and down the coast and made many friends along the way. He was a wonderful father, husband and friend and will be greatly missed by those who knew him, including his walking partner Belle. He embraced life to the fullest and still had his sense of humour right to the end. A Celebration of Michelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Life will be held at a later date. Donations to Pancreatic Cancer Canada or the Hospice Society would be appreciated.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation in Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

ANDREW Lennox Taylor. March 4, 1963 - September 26, 2012.

Linden dropping first puck at Yetis’ reunion Thursday Earle Couper Record Staff

The Yetis of yore are lacing ‘em up once more. Thursday night, the Comox Valley Glacier Kings are holding an Alumni Game at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, with some blasts from the past ready to relive their Jr. B glory days and entertain spectators in Arena No. 1. Adding more magic to the memorable evening, “Captain Canuck” Trevor Linden is scheduled to drop the first puck. The opening ceremonies and introductions start at 7:10 LINDEN p.m. Advance tickets are at First Insurance and will also be available at the door. Among the alumni will be Curtus Larson (1998-2002), Dennis Barna (1994-95), Bryce Hansen (1994-95), Rob Woods (1999-2000), Troy Weed (1993-95), Hugh Gurney (1993-95), Broc Churchill (1993-96), Scott Zaichowsky (1995-97) and

Dustin Frame (2000-01). Organizers say Paul Weed will coach one team with guest coach Bill Rotheisler. Tony Wishart will coach the other team with guest coaches Cam Knox and Mark McNaughton. Between periods, players from the CVMHA Initiation Program will skate in a mini-game. League Play The Glacier Kings had their seven-game Va n c o u v e r Island Junior H o c k e y League winning streak snapped on the weekend as they lost 1-0 to the Peninsula Panthers on Oct. 13 and 2-1 to the Oceanside Generals on Oct. 14 Despite the losses, goalie Josh Round was strong between the pipes for the Icemen. He was the game’s second star on Saturday, making 30 saves, and earned third star honours on Sunday when he turned aside 45 shots. sports@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Road Runners rapid in Victoria There were many cheers and smiles at the Vanier Track workout of the Comox Valley Road Runners last Tuesday night as racers returning from the 33rd Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon, Half Marathon and 8K shared stories of their Thanksgiving Weekend success. The fastest CVRR marathoner in the premier race of the day, Vince Brotherstone, captured one goal to run his race “sub 3” even though he had to run the last 10 km in his stocking feet. In addition to his blisters he received a third place age (M45-49) class medal. First timers Jerry Van, Marion Bryan, Karen Weller, Raida Bolton, Sharon Fisher and Kioko Martin were very pleased with their individual performances and a few said they would definitely do it again. Chris Stanger ran a quick pace for his first Canadian marathon. Karen Weller received a third place age (F55-59) class medal for her first time racing the long distance in the Victoria city streets. Veteran racer Keith Wakelin received a second place age (M50-54) class medal and Les Disher claimed first place in the M60-64 category. Janet Green ran her 269th marathon and CVRR also took home first place in the Masters marathon team. It was perfect racing weather according to CVRR president Wayne

START BEING A GOOD NEIGHBOUR WITH HI

BRIAN ROSE SET a personal best time by shaving over five minutes off the last half marathon he ran. Crowe as he cruised to break the standing 10-year age record by 20 seconds in the half marathon to

take first place in the M5054 category. Neil Holm was the quickest CVRR racer of the day in the

half distance to claim a second place medal (M4549). Brian Rose performed a personal best time by shaving over five minutes off the last half marathon he ran. Andrea Prager continues to turn in quick performances. In the 8K race Emily Keyes blazed to a strong finish of 36 minutes flat to take the top medal in F13-15 category. Hannah Bolton joined her mother Raida for the weekend and ran her first race ever and can be very pleased with her results. Jill Blacklock took home a second place medal for her performance in the fast, shorter race of the weekend. Molly Keyes came second overall in the Kids Race. For most races, a runner will generally set themselves a goal time whether they state that goal out loud or keep it private. Many of the weekend racers met and exceeded their goals. All of the racers represented the CVRR very well. The CVRR Masters Men Marathon team brought home the first place team award while the CVRR Masters Men half marathon team brought home the second place team award.

Meltdown? What meltdown? The Canadian government has routinely been criticized for not being aggressive enough in curbing greenhouse gas emissions. Now a University of Victoria report shows Arctic permafrost is thawing and billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide, previously unaccounted for, is being released into the atmosphere, helping raise global temperatures. This news comes on the heels of a report from the National Snow and Ice Data Centre, which found that the Arctic sea ice cover melted to its lowest level since 1979 last month. What these two things have in common is that they are both caused by global warming — along with natural weather patterns — and both increase global warming. The warming trend in turn creates devastating weather patterns including tornadoes in Brooklyn, droughts in Texas and flooding everywhere from Pakistan to Montreal. These severe weather events cause billions of dollars in damage, not to mention hundreds of thousands of deaths each year. In 2011, the cost of weather disasters worldwide was an estimated $150 billion. Scientists report that severe weather events that usually occur every 50 to 100 years are appearing in shorter cycles. Our warmer atmosphere creates heat waves, more water evaporation from the oceans adds up to heavier rainfall, rising winds occur and atmospheric chaos ensues. These dramatic weather events are another indication that global warming is real and all levels of government need to take it seriously. The federal Liberal government that agreed to the Kyoto Protocol to restrict greenhouse gas emissions, lacked the enthusiasm to meet its targets and since the Conservative takeover, the level of apathy has risen to new heights. The Harper government decided it would never meet the targets so why try? Perhaps the steady erosion of Canada’s Arctic is reason enough. As the ice and permafrost melt, and the water rises, Canada will no longer have to worry about Arctic sovereignty as there will be no Arctic land mass left to protect. — Oak Bay News Record Question of the Week This week: Sixty-four per cent of respondents so far say they are paying closer attention to where their food, especially beef, comes from.

Doesn’t sound like democracy Dear editor, When our prime minister can sign a massive giveaway of Canadian resources and rights and rush it through Parliament without discussion, debate or a vote, do we still live in a democracy, or do we now live in a dictatorship? I am referring to the CanadaChina Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement. It was signed by Prime Minister Harper in Russia on Sept. 9, made public on Sept. 26, and is set for automatic approval on Oct. 31. No discussion. No debate. No vote. This is an unprecedented way to deal with the most significant trade agreement to be signed by Canada since NAFTA. Perhaps the speed and secrecy is to make sure Canadians don’t have time to find out what it is really all about. None of the Opposition MPs have spoken out against this agreement, with the exception of Green Party MP Elizabeth May, who asked for an emergency debate on it and was denied. The Conservative party MPs never seem to speak up about anything if it means contradicting their leader. And the silence from the mainstream media is deafening. This agreement guarantees

that Chinese state-owned companies operating in Canada will be treated exactly the same as Canadian companies. They will be able to sue the government of Canada over any decisions that limit or reduce their “expectations of profits,” and will be able to claim damages against Canada for decisions made at the municipal, provincial, or federal level. Decisions made in our courts can be reversed if they merely threaten to reduce profits of Chinese companies operating in Canada. Disputes won’t be settled in court, but in secret arbitration hearings, so future governments may be forced to change our laws without us ever knowing why. It gives China a great deal, without offering Canada much at all in return. And most importantly, the Canada-China Investment Agreement requires that if, in the future, Canada wants to reduce Chinese access to our natural resources (and every one of our natural resources is covered under this agreement, including water), then Canada can only do so to the extent that we limit our own use of those natural resources. Nobody who really cares about future generations of Canadians would agree to that

According to Andrew Nikiforuk, writing in The Tyee, “the treaty would give Sinopec, one of the big Chinese backers of the Northern Gateway pipeline, the right to sue the government of British Columbia if it blocks the project. Sinopec could also demand that only Chinese labour and materials be used on the pipeline. Moreover the treaty gives Chinese state-owned companies ‘the right to full protection and security from public opposition.’” Democracy is defined as “a form of government in which all eligible citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives.” We have a government that was elected with less than 40 per cent of the vote, yet it does whatever it wants to regardless of what the majority of Canadians want. Our elected representatives are either powerless against a ‘majority’ government, or uninterested in protecting our rights and our resources, and agreements with foreign countries are passed without us ever being told what the implications are for the future of our country, and for future generations. Doesn’t sound like democracy to me. Ellen Rainwalker, Cumberland

We can’t afford our politicians any more Dear editor, Is it just me or have other people noticed that the Valley is feeling the poor economic climate? Well I’d like to let Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland and the regional districts know that a lot of people are suffering in this hardship. People are talking about having hard times just paying rent and buying food. For some reason I don’t think these authorities realize this. Perhaps that’s why Courtenay is cutting down trees in Lewis Park

and adding a $5-million expansion to the Lewis Centre. Do we really need the expansion now? Jangula is in favour of supporting a taxpayer levy to rebuild the railway. We have a homeless situation that has been ongoing for years and there is no solution. Maple Pool is in desperate need of help. What about a taxpayer levy? Would the rich people vote in favour? Why do we have three may-

ors and councils and a regional district to run the Comox Valley, a population of around 70,000 people? What a waste of money. I don’t buy the argument that other communities are run that way. Time to set an example. I think it’s time that our voted officials did the public a service and do what’s best for our community and stop spending at least until the economy recovers. Kim Vogel, Courtenay


OPINION

www.comoxvalleyrecord.com

Coast Guard on guard Dear editor, The Canadian Coast Guard must correct recent inaccuracies being reported about changes to its Marine Communications and Traffic Service centres (MCTS). Our centres rely on a network of unmanned radio and radar towers to pick up and transmit digital and audio information, which is then shared with our highly trained employees at MCTS centres across Canada. Coast Guardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s radio and radar towers will remain exactly where they are today. In British Columbia, and across Canada, our centres will be upgraded with the latest generation of interconnected radio communications technology. If a centre were to experience an outage, a neighbouring one will be able to pick up the geographical area covered by that centre until service is restored. This improves reliability and enhances the safety of mariners. The old system, based on integrating diverse information from 30-year-old technology and firstgeneration computer systems, was always a challenge. Our employees rely on a variety of digital and automated tools that allow them to interpret and act on information from a workstation to deliver services to mariners. This modern technology, which includes communication towers,

radars and cameras, means that regardless of fog or darkness it is not necessary to visually observe vessel movements or harbour activity for employees to provide these services. By having more staff at fewer and better-equipped centres, Coast Guard will be able to provide more reliable service to mariners, as well as better manage fluctuating workload and improve backup capabilities. In British Columbia, the MCTS centres in Tofino, Comox, Vancouver, Victoria and Prince Rupert will be consolidated into updated and modernized centres in Victoria and Prince Rupert, continuing the same excellent service mariners experience today. It is also important to remember that this is not the first time this has been done. For example, in the 1990s, when more effective technology became available, the Coast Guard integrated vessel traffic and radio services from 44 stations to 22 stations. There was no impact on services. The Canadian Coast Guard will continue to ensure its employees have the tools necessary to deliver on our top priority â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the safety of mariners. Jody Thomas Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: Jody Thomas is deputy commissioner of the Canadian Coast Guard.

Non-Christians slighted Dear editor, I am writing to Public Safety Minister Vic Toews to encourage him to re-examine his decision not to renew part-time contracts with faith communities for the provision of chaplaincy services with Correctional Service Canada. This decision would effectively terminate chaplaincy services for non-Christians. This is especially concerning when a disproportionate number of people in prisons are of aboriginal background and have specific spiritual needs that are not necessarily well addressed by Christian chaplains, particularly considering that the relationship between many aboriginal people and Christianity has been severely damaged by the Christian churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s participation in Indian residential schools. Spiritual care is an important component in healing and rehabilitation for many offenders, whatever their faith background.

Christian clergy do not have the specialized training that an aboriginal spiritual leader, an Islamic imam, or a Sikh or Hindu leader has to offer to those who are already excluded from many basic human interactions by their incarceration. In addition to providing worship services and officiating at sacraments; spiritual leaders also provide culturally and religiously appropriate crisis intervention; religious education and pastoral care; oversee culturally specific community involvement; and facilitate understanding among volunteers. I want to register my most profound and deepest concern in this matter, and to encourage Mr. Toews to immediately rehire and/or renew the contracts of all chaplains of all faiths in our federal prison systems. Rev. Julianne Kasmer, Cumberland Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: Julianne Kasmer ministers at Cumberland United Church.

Small business gets special day NAOMI YAMAMOTO

Huge driver Minister of State for Small Business Naomi Yamamoto released the following statement on National Small Business Week from Oct. 15 to 19: “Small business is a huge economic driver in this province, employing over one million people. In fact, 98 per cent of all businesses in B.C. are small businesses. “I know it isn’t easy being a small business owner, having owned my own business for 21 years. So, during Small Business Week and Small Business Month in B.C., let’s take the time to celebrate the courage, determination and dedication of each and every small business owner in this province. ” — Minister of State for Small Business

Canadian small businesses are crucial to Canada’s economic success. They are responsible for creating millions of jobs across the country. Small business entrepreneurs are powering our economy through innovation, job creation and new, exciting ideas. Canada would not be the same without our small business owners. Our economic success depends on them: • Small businesses are responsible for 42 per cent of Canada’s private sector GDP; • Approximately five million Canadians are employed by small businesses, which is 48 per cent of Canada’s private sector labour force; and • Between 2001-2010, over 47 per cent of new jobs were created by small businesses in Canada. Shopping at a small business is a special experience – you cannot get it at a big-box store. Many products are unique and impossible to find anywhere else.

Small business owners are reputable and know their products intimately. They are often family-run, handed down from generation to generation. When you buy from a small business, you support local families and local jobs. Small businesses matter to our economy, to our communities, and to our friends and neighbours. Oct. 20 is Canada’s Small Business Saturday. It’s where we thank small businesses for all their work. Join thousands of Canadians who are committing to shop small and keeping our communities vibrant and strong. Why should small businesspeople join Small Business Saturday? When you participate in Canada’s Small Business Saturday, you are joining thousands of Canadians all across the country who are standing up and supporting local entrepreneurs and small businesses.
