Metchosin talks toilets, setbacks Charla Huber News staff

Plumbing and kitchens are considerations in Metchosin’s hard look at accessory buildings. The municipal council, during committee meeting, took another look at its regulations for accessory buildings and discussed areas including set backs, size, height and conversions. Council members discussed whether to allow plumbing and kitchen facilities in accessory buildings. Coun. Moralea Milne said she has concerns over adding plumbing as it’s a slippery slope to converting buildings for residential accommodations. “I think it’s fair to have a toilet,” said Mayor John Ranns. “The older I get the closer I want to get to a toilet,” added Coun. Larry Tremblay. Committee agreed toilets and sinks should be allowed, but recommended prohibiting showers and bathtubs. Other issues for conversions included whether or not to allow kitchens and food storage. Coun. Larry Tremblay Jo Mitchell shared a bylaw from Central Saanich that doesn’t allow either in its accessory buildings. While cooking facilities could be deemed a residential amenity, Ranns explained, people who make and sell jam may want to use an accessory building for business purposes. Mitchell also threw setbacks and height of buildings into the conversation, suggesting both block the sun from homes and gardens. “What if someone planted a Garry oak tree that grew to 60 feet?” countered Coun. Bob Gramigna. “That wouldn’t be in my lifetime,” Mitchell replied. Milne questioned why accessory buildings could stand as tall at 10.5 metres, but Gramigna, chair of the committee, explained allowing residents to build up could reduce the buildings’ footprint. During the meeting, council and the public noted a lack of public interest. Last April council held an informative meeting on accessory buildings; about two dozen residents attended. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

COMMUNITY NEWS IN BRIEF

Seniors open the doors to guests The Langford 50 and Up club is looking for new members and hosting an open house Saturday, Oct. 20. The open house is at the club, 2637 Sunderland Rd., from 1 to 3 p.m. on Oct. 20 and includes refreshments.

Falling for fruit at Town Centre Charla Huber/News staff

Metchosin seniors peel, chop and dice ingredients for the vegetarian lasagna at the community kitchen hosted at the Metchosin Community House. Left: Mary Gidney demonsrates how to cut an onion without shedding tears.

Seniors whip up community meals Charla Huber News staff

Turkey Pot Pie (two servings) 1 tablespoon butter 1 small onion, chopped 1/2 carrot, chopped 1/2 potato, chopped 1/2 stalk celery, chopped 2 tablespoons flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon thyme 1/2 teaspoon rosemary pinch black pepper 1 bay leaf 1 cup chicken stock 1/2 cup frozen peas 1/2 cup cooked turkey, chopped Topping puff pastry: thaw frozen dough, use 1/4 package and roll to size of casserole.

1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, potato and celery. Cook until softened, about five to seven minutes. 2. Stir in flour and keep stirring on medium heat. Add seasonings. Slowly add the stock stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. It will take about five minutes. 3. Remove bay leaf. Stir in peas and chopped turkey. Cover and cook for five to seven minutes until vegetables soften. 4. Place turkey mixture into a small casserole dish. 5. Top with pastry. 6. Bake at 400F for 25 to 30 minutes until crust is golden brown.

Holding a spoon handle with her lips, Mary Gidney demonstrates how to cut an onion and not cry. “You have to breathe through your mouth when you have a spoon in your mouth,” Gidney said. Gidney guides a room full of Metchosin seniors through recipes they will be preparing at the Metchosin Community House as part of a new program. “Community kitchens are for everyone, not just seniors, it’s a good way to get meals without having to do all the work,” Gidney says. The retired home economics teacher of 27 years, taught at Dunsmuir middle school and Belmont secondary school. “I am retired and that is why I smile a lot,” Gidney says. She leads 11 seniors working together to cook vegetarian lasagna, sausage bean soup and turkey pot pie. Participants paid $25 to cover the cost of food and take home four servings of each meal. After a short demonstration the seniors divide into teams and each tackles a recipe. “Sometimes you don’t feel bothered to cook a full meal,” says Metchosin senior Joyce Edwards. “The veggie lasagna sounds good and you can’t ever tell there isn’t meat in it.” It’s a diverse group some with hearing and sight impairments. Aside from cooking instructions, Gidney also covers food safety guidelines and hand-washing, tying long hair back, wearing aprons and sick people not cooking. “Mary is an excellent teacher and she is good at teaching us to make quick nutritious meals,” says Metchosin senior Wendy Ramsay. This community kitchen was hosted by the Metchosin Seniors Information Resource Centre. Visit www.metchosincommunityhouse.com for ongoing seniors programs. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

going. The date for closure was set for the end of the month, unless a new source of funding or a new location could be found. “We were quite sure there was no further funding coming,” Jackman said. “Nobody was interested in having us and we couldn’t afford to move anywhere. It was ‘oh, I guess we’ll have to close.’” With the help of View Royal Mayor Graham Hill and Coun. David Screech, reading centre staff talked to the managers and owner of the Admirals Walk plaza, who agreed to charge the centre a cheaper rate so they can afford to stay on. “It’s a pretty amazing deal really, for that space,” Screech said. “I certainly respect what they do there, I think all of council does. We value their work and what they offer.” The agreement is only for one year, at which point the centre will have to reopen talks about staying in the location. “It’s a great relief to all of us that we’re going to be staying here,” Jackman said. “We like all the people that come in and out. Most of them we know by name.” The centre moved from the old View Royal town hall to its current location four years ago. Since then Jackman said the centre has thrived, with about 1,200 patrons signed up and a circulation of 600 to 800 books per month. Volunteers are always needed, as are donations.

word of advice, it’s probably best not to bet against the Harlem Crowns when they play the Belmont Bulldogs next week, no matter how much you think the Bulldogs are due. The Crowns are a Harlem Globetrotters-type exhibition team known for their trick moves and hilarious shows. They play high school teams to help them raise money and will be taking on the senior boys Bulldogs on Thursday, Oct. 25. The event is a fundraiser for the team, to help cover travel expenses, referees and other costs. Kyle Wells Co-coach Kevin Brown said you can Reporting expect to see a lot of fancy passing and dribbling, some incredible alleyoops and a lot of harassment of the ref, a Crowns staple. He said the Bulldogs have some competitive spirit in them too and despite it being for fun will probably try to get some shots in. “They go out and know that it’s not really a super competitive game,” Brown said. “I know these guys and their going to try to score either way.” Two years ago current team captain Kane Johnston, Grade 12, watched the Bulldogs and the Crowns before he played for the senior team. He said it was great to watch and he looks forward to “getting embarrassed” this year. “It’ll be a great opportunity,” Johnston said.

The Crowns have been playing since the mid-1950s and were started by a former Harlem Globetrotter. Players are picked for skill as well as showmanship, and all have former college basketball experience. The game is good for the team, said co-coach Tom Holmes, because the players get to play in front of a large crowd and get to play against some talented players, even if it is all just for fun. “It’s not hardcore basketball,” Holmes said. “It’s all the tricks they put in and all the showmanship. They don’t really go by the rules… It’s great family entertainment so hopefully we’ll get a full house.” The Belmont Bulldogs senior boy’s team will be tipping off against the Crowns at 7 p.m. The match will take place at Dunsmuir middle school because the gym there has a higher capacity. Tickets are $10 and available at Belmont secondary school, Dunsmuir or from players on the team. Both coaches said the senior boys team is looking good so far and has a solid core of about six returning players that will lead the group. Holmes said you can often tell at the beginning of the season if the team will likely make provincials, and he said this year’s team has a strong chance. “We’ll be very competitive,” Holmes said. “Come playoff time, if we stay healthy, we should be in the thick of things, for sure.” The opening game for the Bulldogs is Nov. 28. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

It’s my responsibility. That’s how Vanessa Downie responded to the news of Lower Mainland teen Amanda Todd’s suicide after years of bullying. “It’s gone on far too long, and we keep passing the responsibility along,� said Downie, who lives in Saanich. “I’m not going to pass it along anymore.� She has organized a candlelight vigil in Beacon Hill Park tonight (Oct. 19). “It’s to pay respect for Amanda and let her know that she is not alone.� By Wednesday morning, 64 people had committed to attending the Facebook-promoted event. Downie herself was bullied growing up. “It was quite rough,� she said. People pretended to be her friends, called her names, poured juice boxes down her shirt. She found solace in her horse. “He was always happy to see me. It made all the difference in the world.� Todd’s death prompted both provincial and federal governments to debate the merits of antibullying legislation. Downie sees that as a big step – but said it’s going to take a lot more. “Bullying in general is about education and not education from the school system but (starting) much much younger than that,� she said. The vigil starts at 5 p.m. Visit www.facebook. com/events/153672141443947/ for information on the gathering point. Signs and balloons in the park will direct people to the location. rholmen@vicnews.com

Highlands’ only playground is up for a facelift. Twinflower Park will change with the times as Highlands council passed a staff recommendation to update the aging playground.

Staff are authorized to prepare the playground for resurfacing and to paint the equipment. The municipality may also change the sand under the playground equipment to engineered wood chips. “If a child falls off they’ll land on a softer spot,” said district administrator Chris Coates.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR SCRUTINEERS Applications to volunteer to act as a scrutineer for Other Voting in the Assent of Electors process for Public Safety Building Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 839, 2012 On Saturday, November 24, 2012, qualified electors within the Town of View Royal will be voting on the following question: “Are you in favour of Public Safety Building Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 839, 2012 which, if adopted, would authorize the Town of View Royal to borrow up to $5.49 million towards the construction of a new public safety building?”

Capital Regional District directors should pull the reigns on the proposed $782-million secondary sewage treatment project and look at emerging and alternative treatment technology. That’s the appeal Saanich Coun. Vic Derman put forward at the Oct. 10 CRD liquid waste management committee meeting. Derman said new energy extraction methods in sewage treatment could make the current project a relic before it’s even completed. Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins also expressed concern that directors are moving too hastily to implement the plan, which includes a wastewater treatment plant at McLoughlin Point and a biosolids energy centre in a yetto-be-determined location. Both the federal and provin-

cial governments have pledged to contribute one-third of the $782 million price tag, but any cost overruns will fall on municipal shoulders. “The further we go down these roads, the more we have adopted and accepted this plan, the less opportunity we have to revisit and re-look at things,” Desjardins said later in an interview. At the meeting, Desjardins put forward a notice of motion that calls for a re-evaluation of how federal environmental standards apply to the Capital Region and a request for exemption from federal wastewater regulations. She also hopes the CRD will re-engage “prominent scientists who are united in their opinion that we are not harming the environment and that we have the wrong plan.” “Basically, it’s asking this committee to take a stand and turn the table around, to stop,” she said. The committee also reviewed the first concrete cost-sharing formula between the seven municipalities involved in the

Applications to volunteer (not a paid position) to act as a scrutineer for voting with respect to this question will be received at the office of the Town of View Royal, 45 View Royal Avenue, Victoria, B.C. from Monday, October 29, 2012 to Thursday, November 8, 2012 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. During this application period, applications will only be received during regular office days and hours, excluding holidays. Only persons entitled to vote as electors in the other voting are entitled to act as scrutineers for the other voting. Please note that one scrutineer for and one scrutineer against the question will be appointed for each voting place if sufficient applications are received. Application forms and a copy of the subject bylaw are available at View Royal Town Hall or on the Town website at www.viewroyal.ca. Scrutineer applications will not be accepted after 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 8, 2012. Interested persons may obtain further information on requirements and procedures for making an application by contacting Ken Schaalje, Chief Election Officer, or Elena Bolster, Deputy Chief Election Officer, at 250-479-6800 or by visiting the Town website at www.viewroyal.ca.

project. Councils are expected to pony up $37 million, collectively, each year for the project, but the formula will be reviewed by each municipality before approval. Oak Bay fares the worst, with an estimated $391 annual cost per household by 2017, while Victoria comes in at $353 per household. Esquimalt would need to charge its residents another $311 per household. CRD staff cautioned committee members that the estimates are preliminary and will depend on borrowing rates at the time of implementation. Dr. Shaun Peck, the former CRD medical health officer and board member for ARESST (Association for Responsible and Environmentally Sustainable Sewage Treatment), also presented his opposition to the project at the Oct. 10 meeting. “There’s still time to apply for an exemption to the federal wastewater regulations based on the unique marine receiving environment of Victoria,” Peck said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

October is Library Month in B.C., as decreed by the provincial government, and all things libraries are being celebrated on the West Shore. The West Shore has two branches of the Greater Victoria Public Library system: Goudy Branch in Langford and the Juan de Fuca Branch in Colwood. By all accounts the two branches are well used and offer a wide variety of services and programs to the community. “I would say they’re very well used because we have about 800 to a 1,000 people in here everyday,” Andrea Brimmel, manager for both branches, said. The most popular item these days are DVDs and Blu-rays, said Brimmel. That being said, books are still the primary focus of the libraries, and they move off the shelf as consistently as ever. The holds system is also well used. For a popular new movie like The Artist, Brimmel said there is about 450 holds for the DVD. There are a number of copies loaned out for only three days that can’t be placed on hold, but for all the others there can be a long wait, which is good for the library but perhaps bad if you want to check out The Artist. “I’ve got my name on that list and I don’t even know why,” Brimmel said, laughing. Children’s programs are also a large part of what the libraries offer. In 2011, 266 children’s programs were held at the Juan de Fuca branch, to more than 9,000 people, the most for any library in the Greater Victoria system. “It’s one of our most well-used sections,” Leah Pearse, children’s and family literacy librarian, said. Technology is changing how people read and the libraries are working hard to keep up with the times. Ebooks are becoming increasingly popular and the Victoria library system has a small constantly expanding collection, but is being

OUR VIEW

Still occupying our thoughts It’s been a year since a group of individuals calling themselves the People’s Assembly of Victoria gathered in Centennial Square in support of the global Occupy movement. Looking back, many of us in the media found covering the group’s activities at times an exercise in frustration. As people accustomed to finding distinct themes, objectives, solutions and resolutions in our news coverage, we found it tricky to write about a loosely organized collection of individuals that seemed bent on refusing to be defined. We saw divides emerge – a clear generation gap developed – and those willing to have a discussion about Occupy often found themselves in disagreement over what the movement stood for and what it hoped to accomplish. But it wasn’t strictly about arguing that Wall Street is bad, that capitalism promotes corruption, or that the distribution of wealth increasingly favours the rich. People who chose to have a discussion, if they didn’t throw up their hands having failed to get their point across, sometimes found themselves taking new ideas away, or grateful for a chance to offer their perspective. Encouraging communication between disparate groups or individuals may have been one of Occupy’s key accomplishments. Interestingly, the website for the People’s Assembly of Victoria (occupyvictoria.ca) gives its supporters tips for being interviewed by the media. In general they speak to inclusivity and courteousness, sticking to specific topics instead of making blanket statements, and being pro-change, not anti-system. It’s information that might have helped writers who, at the height of the protests last year, struggled to create a level of understanding about the local Occupy movement and why it was relevant in Victoria. Little has changed since then in terms of the redistribution of wealth, either in the Capital Region or globally. That doesn’t necessarily mean Occupy failed. For an unfocused, unfunded gathering of malcontents, the movement was remarkably successful – it woke people up and changed the conversation. What do you think?

marine environment. A few years later and after the province ordered secondary sewage treatment, the CRD’s official stance flipped 180 degrees. That must have taken quite a bit of employee re-education over at the Fisgard Street office. Repeat after me: “Screened sewage is bad, secondary sewage treatment is good…” A major independent scientific review in 2006 on the impact of dumping screened sewage into the ocean agreed that the Strait of Juan de Fuca is pretty good at flushing effluent away, and that bacteria plumes only rise to the surface during major rain events. Basically, the risk to human health is minimal, unless you are swimming laps offshore in a storm. The report didn’t let the city off the hook – it said Victoria’s contribution of contaminants is probably minor, but the CRD needed much better information on the toxicity and impact on the marine environment near the outflows. It didn’t recommend sewage treatment outright, but said flushing wastewater into the strait isn’t a long-term solution. It’s tough to argue against that. But is jumping to expensive secondary treatment necessary? If some form of sewage treatment is inevitable, the tax burden needs to be phased in incrementally. Victoria is expensive enough. Suddenly raise taxes by $300 and something will hit the fan. -- Edward Hill is the editor of the Saanich News. editor@saanichnews.com

OPINION

Northerner presents view of the ferry system You’re expecting me to rant and rave about B.C. Ferries, aren’t you? I expect so. I suppose I could, but I’m just not sure what point there is to it anymore. A lot of folks – residents, and representatives of industry and local government throughout the province – have been responsible for some damned fine Bruce ranting and raving on this subject over the years. And guess, what? Nobody’s listening. I’m not sure that anybody’s ever been listening. B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee has approved a 12-per-cent fare increase over three years. Allegedly this is to offset capital expenditures (read, “failure of the province to maintain the fleet until it

was almost too late”). Deborah Marshall once again pointed out, in a tired, thinly-veiled reference to the northern routes, that some of their departures were sailing empty. We all placed our hope in Gord Macatee. Were our hopes misplaced, or were the overwhelming facts and advice that residents showered upon him in his travels across the Wishart province simply not able to stand up to a political agenda? Don’t ask me. Because you see, I can only find two remaining ways to view this. The first is that B.C. Ferries is a ship of fools, guided by folks so inexperienced in the basic principles of business that they’d drive a lemonade stand into bankruptcy. I don’t believe that. I know

many of those same people, and they tend to be pretty clever. The second and only remaining option is that we are witnessing the coldly planned obsolescence of northern ferry service. Fares are driven up until ridership drops, then fares are driven higher, until in the end we are told that it is sadly and inevitably necessary to cease or seriously reduce service. It saddens me that I have no option left but to believe this second scenario. I’m sad because what seemed to be a compassionate and receptive tour of the province by commissioner Gord Macatee turns out to have been no more than lip service. I’m sad because it means that the proud old Dogwood Fleet now views itself as no more than a profitable bus service between Vancouver and the Island. But more than anything I’m sad because it means that the

province just doesn’t care about the subsidy agreement of April 18, 1977, and all of the other demonstrations of federal and provincial responsibility for a marine highway on the B.C. coast. They don’t care about northern industry, or about B.C. residents outside the urban centres. I know I’ve become tiresome in pointing out that the loss of the Queen of the North shook the tourism industry from the gate receipts at Buchart Gardens to hotel reservations in Saskatchewan, but this rate increase also shows that the province doesn’t give a lick about the vital industry of tourism in B.C. I’m not proposing a conspiracy theory. I have been led to a logical, inescapable conclusion. If there’s an alternate explanation for skyrocketing fares being used to kill northern ferry service, I hope that the premier will explain it to us. In fact, given how vital

this service is to the northern economy and standard of living, I pray that the premier will explain it. And please, Premier Clark, no more of this, “We simply weren’t able to sell our bottles of soda pop at $20 each, so we now have no choice but to sell them for $25.” I’m sure that in addition to having grown cranky and jaded, I may have also become a tad doddery in my declining years. I’m sure that this is simply a case of my being unable to think clearly enough to understand your vision. But either way, please give us the truth. We can handle it. If you just don’t care, please tell us so that we may govern ourselves accordingly. Bruce Wishart is a regular contributor to Black Press’ Northern View newspaper. He is a director with Prince Rupert Tourism.

LETTERS Social media to blame for teen’s death Re: Death of mainland teen Amanda Todd How sad, another teen loses her life because of bullies. We have all done stupid things in our lives, but we did not have instant replay around the world. I like this quote: “If people try to bring you down, it only means you are above them.” Tragic that this young lady did not realize that. When will the powers that be realize that social media websites are addictive? Just as marijuana use can lead to depression, addiction and loss of life in some people, so can these immoral websites. Some people make a lot of money hosting these websites but do not seem to care about the victims. These kind of sites need to be shut down immediately and changes need to be made. Eileen Nattrass Central Saanich

Political will on sewage treatment emerging in CRD Re: Sewage debate clogs CRD committee (News, Oct. 12) How revealing it is to see some civic political posturing at the 11th hour of the Capital Regional District’s regional sewage treatment debate. Are the silent majority of the public beginning to be heard? There certainly needs to be some repositioning on the Victoria sewage treatment question at the provincial and federal levels. With a provincial election in the new year and the federal byelection for Victoria looming in the more immediate future, the sewage treatment issue will unquestionably be on the minds of many voters like myself. It will be interesting to

find out what the platforms of candidates running in that byelection are. The current treatment plan is almost a billion dollars and likely to be full of cost overruns. Indeed, cost overruns seem to be a common occurrence, with large, publicly funded infrastructure projects. Therefore, may we assume we are on the precipice of yet another billion-dollar boondoggle, like the B.C. Hydro Smart Meter fiasco? Technology is available which is more affordable, and which screens source contaminants better than the proposed plan, or so we are told by many leading scientific thinkers who have studied this issue. Therefore, if this is in fact the case, you would think politicians and bureaucrats alike should be promoting such a solution, wouldn’t you? Please let us all write to our political representatives and urge them to vote for science and reason to prevail on this issue. There are seniors, families, small businesses and others who can ill afford yet another fat bill from the plutocracy. Ernest Robertson Oak Bay

Scientists, former MP likely have facts straight Re: Flushing our sewage far from an ideal situation (Letters, Oct. 12) I would be interested to know what Tyler Ahlgren’s background is on this issue, as everything I have heard from marine scientists suggests that Victoria’s current sewage system is adequate and that adding secondary treatment would not lead to a significant improvement in water quality. Primary and secondary treatment facilities are designed to remove solids as well as organic matter and are not particularly effective at removing nutrients

and most other chemicals. I am curious to know what the “chemicals of concern” are that are 98 per cent removed. Several of the communities mentioned in the article do not have good flushing into a large body of water (Sidney, Port Townsend, Sequim, Salt Spring). There is also a big difference in scale for Sooke (serving around 4,000 families). David Anderson is someone who I know cares very deeply about our environment and I am inclined to think he has his facts straight. Mike Anderson Saanich

Canadian’s shame over Syria is misplaced Re: Children victimized in Syrian civil war (Letters, Oct. 12) I must reject Rachelle Dallaire’s naive postulation concerning the obligation of Canada’s government and media with regard to the plight of children in war-torn Syria. In proclaiming to be “ashamed to be Canadian” because not enough is being done, she clearly shows that she has her head buried in the sand and is ignoring that there are millions of disabled, sick and starving people in many other parts of the world (including Canada) with equal claim to our attentions and support. As in most things, there have to be priorities and working with these is the only way to progress and succeed, rather than chasing around the globe like headless chickens, trying to save the whole world at a stroke. There is only so much that governments and international aid organizations can achieve and it is abundantly clear that they are doing everything possible within the limits placed upon them. For example, to reach the wretched people (children and adults) whose lives

are being devastated in the Middle East, the problems are often not just a matter of enthusiasm, funding and logistics on the part of the givers, but rather the integrity, goodwill and trust at the receiving end. If peacekeeping forces cannot secure safe passage in those countries, then what chance is there for anyone else. Finally, I suggest it is nonsense to lambast the media for not pleading the plight of Syria’s children. Their job is to report the facts so that we, as well as the likes of Stephen Harper, are moved to support the multitude of amazing people around the world who are already doing, in an organized and effective way, what Ms. Dallaire craves. I fear the lady’s “shame” is both misplaced and misleading. Derrick Johns Oak Bay

Call for young B.C. leaders

THE REWARDS YOU WANT

Youth parliament seeks residents aged 16 to 21 for projects to benefit youth The British Columbia Youth Parliament is looking for 95 young men and women to debate important service projects for youth of the province and put those plans in place in 2013. From now until mid October, BCYP is calling on community and youth leaders across the province to nominate exceptional young people. “BCYP is education and community service in action,” said Sarah O’Connor, premier for the upcoming year of youth parliament. “We’re after young people who want to learn more about our system of government, make lifelong friends, and take part in projects that benefit our province’s youth.”

BCYP is a non-partisan, non-denominational service organization that plans and puts in place service projects to help improve the lives of young people. BCYP members spend time at the legislature in Victoria between Boxing Day and New Years Day to debate and vote on proposed activities and issues. All members sit as independents, and are free to vote according to their conscience. Potential BCYP members need to be between 16 and 21 years of age, B.C. residents for the past year and able to commit to a year of service. Get the application online at www.bcyp. org. Deadline is Oct. 23. editor@goldstream gazette.com

TC10K run hit with human rights complaint Blind athlete seeks to start before main pack Natalie North News staff

A blind runner filed a human rights complaint against the Victoria International Running Society and the race director of the Times Colonist 10K, after having his request denied to start the run early to avoid race congestion. Graeme McCreath, a 65-yearold Saanich physiotherapist, filed the complaint against the VIRS and race director Jacqui Sanderson, under Section 8 of the Human Rights Code: Discrimination in accommodation, service and facility for the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alleged refusal to accommodate his disability by granting him an early race start time. A B.C. Human Rights Tribunal judge is hearing McCreathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case this week in a public hearing in Victoria, which is scheduled to last up to four days. McCreath, who has a prosthetic left eye and only light perception in the other, has, with the assistance of a guide, run six of the TC10K events, including from 2006 until 2010. McCreath argued that in 2011 he asked to start five minutes ahead of the gun with the wheelchair runners due to the crush of runners in his pace group, the congestion during the first two kilometres of the race and the safety hazards caused by those slowing or stopping in front of him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My own agility has kept me from injury and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tested it too many times,â&#x20AC;? said McCreath, who noted one of his guides once tripped over a runner

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Blind runner Graeme McCreath asked permission to start the TC10K race early, but organizers say changes to the run route make it safer for him and his guide Carlos Castillo to run with his pace group. stopped to tie their shoes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become a real risk.â&#x20AC;? McCreath ran the eight-kilometre road race at the GoodLife Victoria Marathon, a much smaller event compared to the TC10K by several thousand participants, without issue after starting five minutes early with wheelchair racers. Speaking on behalf of the Victoria International Running Society, lawyer David Mulroney said McCreathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges around running amid the congestion of the first leg of the race should have been addressed by the route change made to the 2011 course, which McCreath did not participate in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get what he was asking for and I understand why Mr. McCreath would be advancing a claim,â&#x20AC;? Mulroney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The VIRS would be happy to work out an accommodation

with Mr. McCreath that would meet the safety needs of Mr. McCreath and other visually impaired runners, however the VIRS believes the safest place for Mr. McCreath is running with a guide in his pace group.â&#x20AC;? McCreath says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shocked by the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure to honour his â&#x20AC;&#x153;minimal accommodation.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been disrespected in so many ways,â&#x20AC;? McCreath said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like a pariah. Nobody seems to care.â&#x20AC;? The Human Rights Tribunal public hearing is scheduled to continue today. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Saving elephants a mile at a time

Victoria couple passionate about campaign to end ivory trade The well-being and conservation of elephants is a priority for Dag Goering and Maria Coffey of Victoria. Goering, a large-animal veterinarian, and Coffey, a published author, created the conservation project Elephant Earth Initiative in 2008. The husband-wife team also own an adventure travel company and are leading two separate nine-day treks through Kenya in 2013 for people keen on helping save the African giants. With the demand for ivory resulting in the slaughter of the animals, the couple is calling on locals to help fund efforts to help prevent the harvesting of elephants for their tusks. For the 100 Miles for Elephants campaign, trekkers who make the Kenyan trip are being asked to raise $2,500 each. Funds raised will support Space for Giants, an organization that is training and equipping scouts to stop elephant poaching in Kenya’s Kirisia Hills. An information session for interested parties happens from

Alternative fair highlights region’s craft craze It isn’t your grandma’s craft fair. On Saturday (Oct. 20), a collection of young emerging artists, designers and musicians will showcase their creations at United Eclectic, a maker’s market at Church of Our Lord Hall, 626 Blanshard St. “We created the market as a way to launch local emerging artisans and designers ... and give the public an idea of what young, local artists are up to,” said co-founder Alexa Gilker, who is organizing the event with Jasmine and Rachel Nielsen,

Vendors include Lindsay Delaronde, a Mohawk artist who makes traditional moccasins and hand-painted canoe paddles, as well as Field & Fraser, who produce button stud earrings and personalized typewriter screenprints. Local eatery Nourish will be on site as a food vendor, and local bands Towers and Trees and the frontmen of The Wicks will be providing a musical backdrop. “There’s an old-fashioned cake walk happening where we stop the market and

everyone has to walk around the numbers on the floor and when the music stops, whoever gets their number pulled wins a cake donated from local Origin Bakery. That’s probably my favourite part,” Gilker said. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $2 for adults, and kids get in free.

HELP SOLVE Who was the tree vandal? In the early morning hours of March 22, 2012, a resident on Kimta Road in Victoria West awoke to the sound of a chainsaw. When they went out on their balcony they saw a suspect male running off with a chainsaw in hand. He escaped along the Songhees walkway. Further investigation revealed the male had been cutting a forty-foot-tall Western Cedar in Lime Bay Park on Kimta Road. Unfortunately, due to damage caused by the chainsaw, the tree had to be cut down for safety reasons. The consulting arborists advised this had been a good, healthy tree, approximately 30 years old with an estimated value of $21,500.

Crime Stoppers needs the public’s assistance in locating these wanted individuals.

Don Denton/News staff

A number of Canadian rowers who were named to the 2012 Olympic team (above) have signed their name to a letter directed at the trio of high performance directors for Rowing Canada. The letter demands transparency and a change in the process of the third-party review being conducted this fall. Not all the rowers in the above photo put their name on the letter, while some current athletes have abstained despite being in favour of the request.

Athletes take stand against Rowing Canada Travis Paterson News staff

Just as the flames began to fade from the recent firing of Rowing Canada coach Mike Spracklen on Oct. 1, it appears some embers are still burning strong. This week a group of 29 national team rowers, past and present, issued a letter of protest regarding the recent decisions of Rowing Canada. “Though most of the group are supporters of (Spracklen), we are in agreement (his situation) is the symptom of a larger problem,” said Domenic Seiterle. Seiterle, who is based out of Oak Bay, and Kyle Hamilton, now a Victoria lawyer, were part of the 2008 men’s heavyweight eight that rowed to gold at the Beijing Olympics. The pair are at the forefront of the group which signed an open letter to Rowing Canada’s president Michael Murphy, and the media, on Tuesday (Oct. 16). The letter singled out the titles, but not the names, of high performance director

Among those who abstained from signing the letter are Malcolm Howard and coxswain Brian Price, who were part of Seiterle’s and Hamilton’s 2008 Olympic gold medal crew.

Canada, Argentina to meet in ARC final Canada is looking to dethrone Argentina as the Pan-American rugby champs The two sides will meet in the Americas Rugby Championship final, Saturday night at Langford’s Westhill Stadium. Canada is 2-0, having defeated U.S.A. 23-3 on Tuesday and Uruguay 28-10 on Friday. Argentina is also undefeated, beating Uruguay 21-10 and U.S.A. 39-3. Canada is looking to be the first team other than Argentina to win the ARC tournament. Argentina has won it twice, lifting the trophy in the inaugural year of 2009 and, again in 2010 (ARC was not played in 2011 do to the Rugby World Cup). A crowd of 2,273 filled the stands – and beer garden – of Westhills Stadium for Canada’s Tuesday

match, up from 1,745 on Friday. Local club rugby player Connor Braid, of the James Bay Athletic Association, led Canada in points, kicking two penalties and one try conversion. Jordan Wilson-Ross (Alliston, Ont.) and Clayton Meeres (Chilliwack) each scored a try for Canada in the second half. Canada’s forward pack earned a penalty try in the first half by way of a penalized U.S.A. scrum. “(Argentina) is basically a one game, winner take all, and we hope it’s us,” said Canadian coach Kieran Crowley. Kickoffs are 5:30 p.m. for U.S.A. (0-2) versus Uruguay (0-2) and 7:30 p.m. for Canada versus Argentina. sports@vicnews.com
