Gloves come off in fight to save tree Saanich files court injunction against Cadboro Bay residents Natalie North News staff

building permits on Sept. 28 due to problems with building sizes and property line setbacks, but not the potential poultry operation. “This is agricultural land reserve land, and the majority of the concerns that (Saanich) raised simply do not apply to ... farm uses,” Alexander said. Alexander said while Saanich’s lawyers appear to be of the opinion that a building permit should have been issued for the chicken farm, there are still concerns about permitted building sizes and setbacks.

At 69 years-old, Bob Furber is facing his first lawsuit. He’s baffled, shaken and turning into an insomniac, but he’s not ready to give up the fight – for a neighbourhood boulevard tree. Last Friday, Saanich served at least three residents of the Cadboro Bay area with a B.C. Supreme Court injunction to halt interference with the removal of a 30-metre Douglas fir near Telegraph Bay Road near Arbutus Road. “We were just dumbfounded to be served with those documents,” Furber said. “I feel I’m being bullied and I just don’t know how to react. It’s a terrible feeling.” Since the spring, Furber and a handful of Cadboro Bay residents, including Max Cowper-Smith and Furber’s wife, Jeanette Funke-Furber, have closely followed Saanich’s plan to remove the fir. The tree is infected with a fungus, and the Saanich parks department had deemed that it should be taken down, given its size and location in an area prone to high winds. Saanich had originally set the removal date as the end of August, but postponed the process twice, based on residents’ interest in gathering more information and keeping the towering tree in their neighbourhood.

Landowner feeling henpecked Technicalities delay poultry farm in Gordon Head

Kyle Slavin Reporting

The chickens aren’t coming home to roost, yet. A Saanich family’s plan to open a chicken farm on their agricultural land has hit a stumbling block at the municipal level. Gordon Alberg said his hands were tied after Saanich council twice denied his family’s request to developing housing on property at 1516 Mount Douglas X Rd. So the family – Gord and his

siblings Don Alberg and Florence Davis – went the route council suggested, and proposed a poultry operation that would house 12,000 birds in four barns. Saanich’s planning department has now denied the family building permits, which Alberg says is all politics. “They’re trying to have jurisdiction over it,” he said of his property, which is protected in the provincial agricultural land reserve but now sits astride a number of residential neighbourhoods south of Mount Doug Park. Alberg hired a lawyer, John Alexander, after Saanich staff denied

Saanich, through the eyes of Anne Natalie North Reporting

Luck and fate preserve century-old photographic work of Alice Anne Girling Saanich archives photo 2008-025-226


hen Caroline Duncan drives around the Swan Lake area, she sometimes ends up back in 1912. It’s a game of fantasy made vivid by the municipal archivist’s work cataloguing a massive photo collection taken by Alice Anne Girling, a photographer who moved to Swan Lake from England in 1912 and documented every aspect of life in young Saanich. On Oct. 4, 100 years to the day since Girling’s family arrived on the Island, Duncan and Girling’s great-niece, Maureen Mackenzie, scanned through the prolific photographer’s work. The two women have gotten to know each other through the 916-image, 535-glass plate negative, 357-film negative and 24-print photo collection, which they continue to catalogue and discuss as Mackenzie uncovers new details from the family. “We don’t always have this connection and looking through these, the family becomes very real to me,” Duncan said. “(Maureen) embodies all of the history. It brings all of the history completely to life.” Girling was born in Suffolk, England in 1880 and studied photography at Woolwich Polytechnic before immigrating to Canada with her parents and 10 siblings. She was a tiny woman – just four-footseven. She never married and kept a close relationship with her family, with whom she lived her entire life. “If Annie was here, we’d ask what it was like coming over to Canada, but we don’t need to because we can see right here, with all of it documented, the life that she had through her photographs,” Duncan said. From 1912 until 1940 Girling shot still lifes, captured quiet moments in nature and experimented with adding colour to the glass negatives. Her photos detail life

Alice Anne Girling.

Alice Anne Girling captures trees in silhouette amid burning brush near what is thought to be near Swan Lake, circa 1912. in Greater Victoria: regattas on the Gorge, heavy snowfalls, the legislature lit up at night and landscape shots at Swan Lake – where she often took photos during brush burning for a dramatic smoky effect – but she also kept her lens focused tightly on her own family. She often posed her brothers and sisters and their pets, revealing the tender relationship she shared with her siblings, seven of them younger than herself. The collection could easily have been lost or destroyed, but luck and one determined student kept it intact. Until 2008, the photos, along with Girling’s 1901 mahogany Instantograph camera were in the care of Lindsay Lambert, who had been given the collection 31 years earlier and kept them preserved without ever knowing to whom they had belonged. The Girling family had moved from Swan Lake to Thetis Lake, then finally to a home near the University of Victoria on Finnerty Road, where Girling died in 1953, leaving behind her massive body of work. Somehow the photo collection, abandoned in the home, remained intact. When UVic purchased the Girling home in the 1950s, a university staffer discovered the images and held onto them until 1977. He then passed them to Lambert, a UVic theatre student with a strong interest in vintage technologies. Lambert eventually moved to Ontario. He attempted to give the photos and negatives to museums, but without any refer-

Four years ago next month, Lambert was visiting Victoria, equipped with the entire collection in hopes of donating the mystery to the Saanich archives. On that trip he happened to read a letter to the editor in the Times Colonist from Mackenzie’s husband Richard, who made reference to one of her great uncles pictured in the collection. Lambert finally matched a name to the work. Lambert called the Mackenzies, and suddenly Maureen had a tea crate with nearly 1,000 photographic insights into family members she remembers meeting just once as a young child. “It was wonderful,” Lambert said. “Every-

thing came together beautifully. … I hung on to (the collection) for all those years for a reason.” But the notion of scanning nearly 1,000 glass plate negatives, before the identification process could even begin, kept the archivist grounded during the windfall. “(Lindsay) was showing us the camera and showing us the negatives, giving us a history lesson and I was just starting to get a sense of the significance. I was a little overwhelmed with the work ahead,” Duncan said. While the bulk of the process was completed in 2008, additional details continue to trickle in today. Every November since 2008, Duncan, Mackenzie and Lambert go on an Girling adventure to uncover elements of the family’s past. Last year they visited the site of the family’s Ralph Street home, which is now a part of the Swan Lake-Christmas Nature Sanctuary. There, they could see evidence of the home’s foundation and canary wheat grass planted by the Girlings. This year they’ll continue along a similar adventure, visiting Greater Victoria locations that Girling photographed. “I go to auctions downtown and I find boxes of photographs … Nobody knows who they are and they’re not valued in the same way,” Duncan said. “There’s a story behind it and that story has been lost and this is why this is such a significant collection – the story hasn’t been lost, it’s stayed with it and has been protected and preserved and found its way home.” “It’s a real gift,” Mackenzie said. “I always tell Lindsay that. It’s like it was meant to be.” See Alice Anne Girling’s photos at the Arts Centre at Cedar Hill until Oct. 28.

Reface your he


Horseshoe club hosts block party revival Edward Hill News staff

Toss a few horseshoes and get to know your neighbours. The Victoria Horseshoe club is playing host to a community meet-and-greet, where people from all corners of Saanich can chat with other residents, while having lunch on the horseshoe pitch. “When I was a child we used to have block parties and everybody knew each other,” said Janet Lum, the event organizer and Royal Oak resident. “That doesn’t happen any more and not many people know their communities.” Lum, a client relations employee for HP Advanced Solutions and member of the Victoria Horseshoe Club, created the event to revive the notion of a community block party, but also as an assignment set out by her Landmark Education leadership program. She was challenged to impact anywhere from 20 to 200 people in the community.

“What I hope to accomplish is to promote a well-connected, safe and prosperous community,” Lum said. “I’m very proud to live in this community and want to give back.” The event format will have vendor booths from Saanich businesses, and attendance by the Victoria Royal’s Marty the Marmot, Bob Alexander the Town Crier, Saanich Fire Rescue and organizations such as Block Watch. “Saanich always likes these groups, be it lawn bowling, canoe and kayaking, or horseshoes. These groups are a terrific part of the social fabric of the community,” said Saanich Coun. Paul Gerrard, who plans to attend the meet-and-greet. “Anything that gets people outside into the community is a great thing.” About 100 volunteers from the all-volunteer horseshoe club are making the event a reality, said club president Cheryl Cliche, from cooking, to event setup to showing people how to play horseshoes.

“(This club) is one of Victoria’s best kept secrets,” Cliche said. “This event is a great opportunity for the community and the club. We can showcase what we have.” Lum will use the event to launch Victoria’s website, which promotes connecting and sharing between neighbours. Through the website, people can offer up their expertise, skills or equipment – such as carpentry, or tools for home or auto repair. site is based in Australia and has a growing following around the world. Lum plans to launch a Victoria “hood” within the site. “The idea is to promote local interactions. If you need a ladder, you can go onto the site and find somebody nearby to borrow from,” Lum said.

Even before a black Dodge pickup truck rear-ended a double-decker transit bus during the Monday morning commute, Saanich police were aware of the truck’s erratic driving. Around 9:30 a.m. a driver headed southbound on the Patricia Bay Highway called police to report aggressive and dangerous driving from a Dodge pickup. The caller lost sight of the truck for a short while, but spot-

ted it again at the McKenzie Avenue exit, crashed into the back of a bus. None of the 25 to 30 passengers on board the bus at the time were injured. Saanich police officers attended the crash scene, and found the pickup driver to be “extremely resistant.� “He was fighting with our officers, he spat on one officer and he was making threatening comments at them,� said Sgt. Dean

Jantzen. “It was the same thing with the ambulance crews.â€? The driver, a 25-year-old Fraser Valley resident, was taken to hospital under police escort. “We don’t know what the cause of the accident is at this point in time. ‌ They’re looking at alcohol and drugs, to see if they were factors or not, or whether it’s a medical condition,â€? Jantzen said.

assessment report commissioned by the District of Saanich, completed in June, which clearly states the tree should be removed for safety reasons, Roer remains unconvinced. “It’s somewhat shocking for us to hear that there is no evidence,� Roer said. “We’ve provided them with that evidence, we’ve received no less than three arborists who have reviewed the condition of that tree and they’ve arrived at the same conclusion.� Furber confirmed that an outside arborist hired by neighbours also agreed with the original assessment from Saanich. At press time Cowper-Smith was preparing the documents to sue the District of Saanich. That application is expected to be heard on Friday at 9:45 a.m. at the Victoria Law Courts.

On Oct. 4, prior to any legal action from the municipality, Cowper-Smith sent a letter to Saanich threatening to file an injunction against the District of Saanich if the latest deadline for the tree removal – the following Tuesday, Oct. 9 – wasn’t extended. Late on Friday afternoon, Cowper-Smith received a response stating that Saanich would go forward with the removal the following week. Residents were ready and set up around the tree at 7 a.m. on Oct. 9. They refused to move from below its canopy and prevented the hired tree removal service from cutting the tree. A few days later, on Oct. 12, the gloves were off – Saanich served Cowper-Smith, Furber

and Funke-Furber with the injunction requiring them not to interfere with the tree removal, or risk arrest by police. “We responded with our own (legal action) in order to make the area safe to facilitate the removal of the tree,� said Rae Roer, manager of Saanich parks. “We’re left with no alternative as we continue to be concerned with the health and safety of the community. An advanced stage of decay exists in this tree and in order to manage the risk, it has to be removed.� What Furber would like to see, he says, is more evidence as to why the massive Douglas fir couldn’t be pruned instead of removed completely to mitigate the risk to the public. A solution he says, would keep matters out of court and save costs. But following the original risk

‘Shred It’ event highlights active industry of ID theft Free document shredding at Tillicum today Edward Hill News staff

People may try to steal your identity through online phishing, telephone scams and email spam, but mainly it’s done the old fashioned way – by rooting through your garbage. These days, people often toss utility bills and credit card statements into recycling or the trash, and leave it outside for pickup. Even personal documents stored together in an unsecured location in a home, or mail left in the mailbox are a risk. To highlight the growing problem of identity theft and the multitude of phone, email and Internet-based scams, the Better Business Bureau of Vancouver Island is hosting its second “Shred It! Secure Your ID Day” event today (Oct. 19). In the parking lot at Tillicum Centre, the BBB and Access Records and Media Management will be on hand with a mobile shredder machine. People can destroy up to five boxes of paper documents for free. “Part of the Better Business Bureau mandate is to educate people on not being victims, so people don’t have their IDs stolen or fall victim to scams,” said

Rosalind Scott, president of the BBB Vancouver Island. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre stats show 17,000 people reported falling victim to ID theft in 2011 and who lost a combined $13 million. Canadians lost $64 million last year in what police call “mass marketing frauds” – a catchall for telemarketing, email and Internet scams and ID theft. The BBB will also have an identity theft expert on hand to dole out helpful advice on avoiding scams and fraud. The act of shredding documents is no coincidence – Scott said the No. 1 trap to avoid is recycling un-shredded personal papers. “The biggest trick is don’t leave personal documents lying around. Everybody gets credit card and bank statements in the mail and they can get stolen in recycling,” Scott said. “We call it dumpster diving. The prime source for scammers is going through peoples’ garbage. They’re not in there rooting for food.” It’s such a pressing issue in Greater Victoria, BBB-VI is helping launch “Scam Watch,” a Shaw TV program that is scheduled to air next month. Scott and Victoria police commercial crimes officers will highlight common scams and frauds each week. Police across the region receive no end of reports of attempted and successful frauds. Canadians in their 60s are the most tar-

geted demographic for scams. Common scams include elderly people getting calls from people claiming to be a grandchild or nephew or niece who request money to get out of a jam (called the “emergency scam” or “grandparent scam”). Scammers hack email accounts and spam friends with fraudulent requests for money due to supposed trouble while travelling overseas. Some people are still tempted by Nigerian email scams, inheritance scams, lottery and prize scams or foreign money order scams. Fraudulent “Microsoft” or “Apple” technicians have gained access to people’s computers through unsolicited phone calls. “So many red flags come up, but unfortunately we live in tough financial times, where people get carried away trying to get something for nothing.” Scott said. “People need to stop and think: ‘Does this make sense?’ If you’re told you are a lottery winner, did you actually buy a ticket? Does it make sense that you’d get an inheritance from somebody you’ve never met from a country you’ve never set foot in?” Shred It is Friday, Oct. 19 at the Tillicum Centre outside Old Navy from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more see Your Sight Is Our Vision

Baba Brinkman translates lit, science for the hip-hop masses Natalie North News staff

Baba Brinkman sings a few bars to Notorious B.I.G.’s Hypnotize – the perfect example of the meta-marriage between form and content in The Rap Guide to Evolution, one of Brinkman’s five hip hop shows that break down complex topics into remixes of popular rap songs. “Doing a rap performance in a highly effective and sophisticated way has a direct impact on the psychology of perspective mates and that’s exactly what you would expect if you were describing a sexually-selected behaviour,� says the New York-based rapper, University of Victoria grad and playwright. “A peacock could be writing exactly the same song about his tail that Biggie wrote about his rap skills.� It’s rap about the origins of rap, as the product of evolution, demonstrated through a performance which also communicates the gist of the theory – or what Brinkman calls “met rap,� for its uber meta-qualities. Next Wednesday, Brinkman, who graduated with a masters in English from UVic in 2003, will return to his alma mater for two shows: The Rap Guide to Evolution and The Canterbury Tales Remixed, an updated version of his first work based on Geoffrey Chaucer’s classics, which debuted at the Victoria International Fringe Theatre Festival and sold out shows at the Edinburgh festival that year. A key player in the evolution

UVic grad and rap artist Baba Brinkman returns to Victoria with unique brand of academic hip hop performance. of Brinkman’s career was Mark Pallen, a professor of microbial genomics at the University of Birmingham in the U.K. After seeing Brinkman’s performance of The Rap Canterbury Tales, he commissioned Brinkman to do for Darwin what he did for Chaucer and create The Rap Guide to Evolution to coincide with the Darwin bicentenary in 2009. Pallen was impressed with his ability to interweave rap and evolutionary thinking and has since incorporated Brinkman’s videos into his lessons. “What most scientists watching this stuff don't realize is that many of the tracks are reworkings of established hip-hop tracks that Baba has adapted for the purposes of explaining evolution,� Pallen said. “So the rap sits in an authentic context too.� Brinkman is open about his minimal formal education in science. All of his work is subject to a rigorous peer review and fact-checking process. “You’ve got a three-and-a halfminute rap song,� Brinkman said. “You can’t communicate the complexities of an entire textbook, but you can point people

toward the relevant concepts and put them in the context that promotes curiosity.� His next off-Broadway show in the hopper deals with the scientifically informed search for a mate in the modern world, based on the theory of evolution. Following with his history of tackling controversial topics relatively well understood in the scientific community and that are misunderstood by the public, Brinkman is ready to take on climate change, bioengineering and religious behaviour in future works. “There’s no way you can avoid being offensive, but you can at least try to offend people for the right reasons,� said Brinkman, who has endured unsurprizing criticism from creationists. This is the first time the Vancouver-born troubadour will perform in Victoria since the beginning in 2004. “In those days I was very green around the gills. This is me coming back after hundreds of shows and non-stop performing. I’m excited to come back to my own territory and validate the education I got there.�

SAANICH NEWS - Friday, October 19, 2012

Wrong place, wrong time for drug deal If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to conduct a drug deal, you might not want to do it right next to an undercover cop car. Two men in Saanich learned that lesson the hard way this week. Two Saanich police officers were parked at University Heights Shopping Centre for an unrelated matter around 2 p.m. Monday (Oct. 16) when a small black Pontiac came and parked

two stalls away. With no vehicles parked between the Pontiac and the undercover police car, the officers soon witnessed a man ride up on his bike and enter the car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was quite an obvious transaction with the exchange of a Tupperware container, and, in the words of the inspector that I talked to, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You could just clearly see the bagged up marijuana

that was in the container,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Sgt. Dean Jantzen. Jantzen said the men looked directly at the undercover car and the uniformed officer, but that â&#x20AC;&#x153;didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t register.â&#x20AC;? The officers arrested a 27-yearold and a 25-year-old and seized two Tupperware containers, each containing eight 10-gram bags of marijuana, and $250.

Family seeks productive use of land Continued from Page A1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not convinced Saanich is right about the setbacks. All theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do is drive the project to taller, higher more intrusive barns and more intensive activity along the property lines,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;be careful what you wish for,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; so to speak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Albergs want to do this in the least intrusive way possible,â&#x20AC;? Alexander added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are committed to getting some productive use of this land, and it really will be council that will determine what the form of that productive use is.â&#x20AC;? Saanichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of planning Sharon Hvozdanski admits there is conflict between the

property as designated farmland while being zoned as residential. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The use of the land is brought into question based on the existing single-family zoning, and also in regard to the use of the land for farming,â&#x20AC;? Hvozdanski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our opinion that (land-use issues) havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been adequately addressed.â&#x20AC;? On July 23, Saanich council voted 5-4 to protect farmland and oppose removing the property from the ALR. The four dissenting voters argued that keeping the land in the ALR could result in a farming operation that would be more intrusive on neighbours than 12 homes and a community garden.

Local Market Expert

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want to save farmland you have to live with it being farmed,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Frank Leonard said at the time. Coun. Dean Murdock, one of the more outspoken of the five councillors who voted to reject the housing proposal, stands by the decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to stop carving up our farmland and turning it into asphalt-paved subdivision,â&#x20AC;? Murdock said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our hope was that whatever farm process that might occur there would be a less intrusive farm practice (than a poultry operation) â&#x20AC;Ś and I regret the frustration and anxiety this has likely caused the neighbours, but retaining the farmland was the right decision.â&#x20AC;? 1933 Oak Bay Avenue 250-592-4422

Still occupying our thoughts I

t’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 ( 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 prochange, 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?

to little discernible effect on the 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.

A northern view of a broken ferry system Y

ou’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. Deborah Marshall once again pointed out, in a tired, thinly-veiled reference to the northern routes, that some 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 Wishart showered upon him in his travels across the 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. 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 the premier will explain it. 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.

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

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.

Laundromat robbed of cash, cheques A man made off with hundreds of dollars in cash after stealing a bank deposit bag from Squeaky’s Laundromat in Shelbourne Plaza on Monday. Around 2 p.m. a man went into the laundromat, entered a small office and grabbed the blue deposit bag, which contained thousands of dollars in cash and cheques. He was spotted by the business owner, but said he entered the office to pet a dog that was in there. He was able to escape before the proprietor noticed the missing money bag. The bag was found abandoned in the washroom of a nearby restaurant on Tuesday, with the cash missing. The thief is described as being 40 years old or older, with a heavy set build. He was wearing a dark winter coat. Saanich police are asking anyone with information on this theft to call 250-475-4321.

Saanich is hosting two open houses for its Complete Streets program, which aims to upgrade three major commuter, pedestrian and cycling corridors. Cook Street between Quadra and Maplewood; Tillicum Road between Carey Road and the Trans Canada Highway; and Glanford Avenue between Vanalman Avenue and Ralph Street have been identified for upgrades under Complete

Streets, which can include better sidewalks and bike lanes. The open house for Cook Street is Monday, Oct. 22, at the Cedar Hill Golf Course banquet room from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The open house for Tillicum Road and Glanford Avenue is Tuesday, Oct. 23, at the McKenzie elementary school sym from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. See for more information.


Frozen chicken, spare ribs stolen from garage Saanich’s infamous potato chip bandit may have struck again, this time stealing a different sort of savoury goods. Someone stole three cases of frozen chicken breasts, a package of frozen spare ribs and three pounds of butter from a garage freezer. Police were notified of the theft, at a Saanich home in the 4500-block of Viewmont Ave., on Oct. 13, though the theft may have taken place as early as Oct. 10. People reported two other thefts from garages last week, including on Oct. 10 in the 700-block of Miller Rd. A thief nabbed two well-used laptops from that garage. On Oct. 14, police attended a home on Sinclair Road after a theft of tools, including a miter saw, from a garage. “There are thieves who’ll target nothing other than garden sheds and take hand tools because it’s all seen to have some value to somebody,” said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen. Anyone with information can call 250-4754321.

Tenant trades life on street for unit at Queens Manor Renovated hotel in Victoria opens for homeless

Wade Churcott was facing the prospect of a cold night on the ground when he got the call that changed his luck. Eighteen months ago, the 39-year-old Victoria man lost his home. At first, he bounced from shelter to shelter, but it just wasn’t working out. “I was barred from Salvation Army, I was barred from Rock Bay Landing … and I was barred from the sobering centre,” he said. Drugs and alcohol made talking too easy, he explained. “Sometimes you say things that you regret, and there’s consequences and you have to suck it up and tough it out.” Toughing it out for Churcott meant sleeping outside, under the awning of Castle Building Centre on Cook Street. “The only place I could go to hang out during the day was Our Place,” he said. Churcott was at the Pandora Street facility eating dinner recently when two garbage bags he had stashed under a nearby bush went missing. Inside the bags were all his possessions, including six blankets and other essentials. “I thought, ‘oh no, I’m going to be out in the rain with no blankets,’” he recalled. That’s when the Victoria Cool Aid Society called. Despite his active addiction and his bad track record at other shelters, Cool Aid offered him a unit in the newly-renovated Queens Manor, a supportive housing facility. The news brought him to tears. “It was a miracle,” he said. “I just wanted to take my shirt off and sleep in my underwear like a normal person.” Churcott moved into his new home in late September. He slept for three days. In 2010, the City of Victoria

For the first time in 18 months, Wade Churcott has a home. He’s a new tenant in the newly-renovated Queens Manor, a former Traveller’s Inn hotel purchased by the city in 2010.

Funding partners ■ Federal government: $1.5M ■ Provincial government: $2.9M plus a $548,330 annual subsidy ■ Capital Regional District: $600,000 ■ City of Victoria: $360,000 ■ United Way of Greater Victoria: $150,000

purchased the former Traveller’s Inn motel at the corner of Queens Avenue and Douglas Street. With support from four funding partners and Cool Aid, the city began renovating one floor at a time. The $5.5-million project has officially wrapped up. Dubbed Queens Manor, the facility contains 36 units, has support staff attached and houses people who were formerly homeless or at risk of homelessness. “I’m proud of the leadership shown by the City of Victoria on

this project,” Mayor Dean Fortin said last Friday. “The city took the plunge, the team made it happen and the end result is as it should be.” Ownership of the building will soon transfer to the province, which has agreed to purchase it from the city. With an easy confidence, Churcott took his place in the limelight after Fortin. “You’ve all played a part in getting me off the street,” he said to a room full of politicians and agency workers in the building’s lobby. “I’m an addict, but I’m a person first and foremost.” A home gives a person time to think, he explained. “To be able to have a place to call your own, it’s the most dignifying feeling a person can have when they’ve come from such a low place … I’m not running around doing stupid things anymore.”

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. For more information, visit unitedeclectic. com or @unitedeclectic on Twitter.

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

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.

Ecology watchdog retires after 28 years Many Greater Victorians might recognize him as the big-bearded man keeping careful track of Cooper hawks and herons and reporting out nesting sites to the media each summer. Behind the scenes, Fred Hook did much more as Victoria’s environmental technician. “(He) should take a lot of the credit for making Beacon Hill Park that special place,” City of Victoria parks director Kate Friars said. Hook retired two weeks ago after 28 years with the city. “He went without any fanfare whatsoever,” Friars said. “It was his choice. He will be very sorely missed.” As environmental technician, Hook managed invasive species and the naturalization of areas in the park.

Victoria veterinarian Dag Goering nuzzled by a baby elephant. He and his wife Maria Coffey will lead two treks in Kenya in 2013 to help fund anti-poaching efforts.

Saving elephants one mile at a time Victoria couple passionate about campaign to eliminate 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 result-

ing 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 7 to 9 p.m. next Wednesday (Oct. 24) in the Collard Room at Swan’s Brew Pub, 506 Pandora Ave. Call 250-995-3003 to RSVP for the info session or visit elephantearth. org for more information.

Soiree offers unique Oak Bay experiences The businesses of Oak Bay Village are presenting An Oak Bay Soiree this Sunday (Oct. 21). Held to support the work of the Canadian Cancer Society, this fundraising event offers something slightly different. Attendees will have an opportunity to bid on uniquely Oak Bay experiences that cannot otherwise be purchased. “We wanted to create an elegant event that is also casual and an opportunity for friends and neighbours to come together in support of this important cause,” said Elizabeth Smith, owner of Athlone Travel and one of the event organizers. “We thought one way to celebrate our community would be to offer experiences that celebrate our community.” In addition to prizes from Oak Bay Village businesses, attendees will

have the opportunity to bid on the opportunity to plug in the lights at the 2012 Oak Bay Light Up and turn on all the Christmas lights for the 2012 Christmas Festival. There are also two covered, reserved parking spaces available underneath Athlone Court for November and December and an opportunity to have your face carved in a pumpkin by John Vickers. Attendees can also bid to be the challenger in the Mayor’s Challenge Floating Teacup Race at the 2013 Oak Bay Tea Party, where the challenger will have the opportunity to compete against Mayor Nils Jensen. An Oak Bay Soiree will be held at the Penny Farthing Pub from 6 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $50. A list of auction items is posted on the events page at • A27
