Only a few grainy photographs remain of Edward Arthur Wilson, who fashioned himself Brother XII.

XII

A sailor, seducer and a swindler – stories of the strange life of the shadowy figure are whispered to this day. Why does the man who founded a spiritual cult near Nanaimo still hold such a grip on the city’s imagination? BY TOBY GORMAN I THE NEWS BULLETIN

T

he name Brother XII doesn’t pass easily across the lips of people who know his story. More than 80 years after the English sailor, mystic and cult leader reportedly tortured some of his followers, took all of their possessions and, in some cases, their wives, Brother XII is spoken of in hushed tones around Nanaimo even today. Born Edward Arthur Wilson on July 25, 1878 in Birmingham, England in an atmosphere of strict religious devotion, according to John

Oliphant, author of Brother XII: The Strange Odyssey of a 20th Century Prophet and His Quest for a New World, Brother XII claimed to be in touch with supernatural beings from an early age. Following an Egyptian epiphany in the south of France, said Oliphant, Wilson “began to communicate with a disembodied entity that identified itself as one of the 12 masters in the Great White Lodge. As the disciple of this 12th master, he took the name Brother XII.” ◆ See ‘STORIES’ /7

City’s largest road project complete Enrolment drops

sharply in district

I

NEW QUARTERWAY bridge opened to traffic Thursday morning.

BY JENN M C GARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Two years of construction and $11 million later, one of the city’s most ambitious road projects is now complete. Jan Mongard, project manager, along with city dignitaries and staff, officially opened the widened portion of Bowen Road and Quarterway Bridge Thursday morning, allowing vehicles to pass over all four lanes of traffic for the first time. Mongard called the project one of the most challenging civil infrastructure projects Nanaimo has taken on. It was also one of the most lengthy. “We’re happy to give it back to the community,” said Mongard. “We have a running joke about the duration of the project because so much has changed. Our secretary had another child, one person has retired and my inspector now needs glasses to read so those are measures, for us, of the length of time this project has taken.” Improvements to the roadway include sidewalks on both sides of the road for pedestrians, new signals at Bowen and Buttertubs roads, improved signals at Bowen and Pryde Avenue, a new, larger bridge to replace the 65-year-old Quarterway Bridge, streetlights and landscaping. The curb lanes are 4.3 metres wide, which accommodate a bike lane, but Mongard said the plans only called for bike positioning identifiers at intersections, not paint defining bike lanes. “It wasn’t part of my drawings but others may decide to paint bike lines,” he said. Final touches, including landscaping and line painting, will complete the project, which has a deadline of Oct. 31. Drivers are asked to continue to respect road crews as they finish up. It is estimated that 15,000 vehicles pass through the corridor daily. The project was originally budgeted for in the city’s 2010-2014 capital plan. Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan said the city appreciates the co-operation of businesses affected by the construction over the last several months. “I appreciate the co-operation from the local businesses, the hard work by Hazelwood Construction and their

subcontractors, and the dedication of city staff and their team of consultants,” said Ruttan. “The resulting upgrades to the Quarterway Bridge, Bowen Road, and underground services represent a key step forward in council’s commitment to replacing outdated infrastructure.” Along with 800 metres of expanded four-lane roadway and a turning lane, as well as the new bridge, the project included 990 metres of water main, 1,130 metres of sanitary main line, 1,560 metres of storm main, and a landscaped boulevard.

Almost 300 fewer students entered Nanaimo schools this fall than the previous year. The official fall enrolment numbers are in and while the district was expecting to lose about 77 students, it actually lost 298 students – or 221 more empty desks than projected. The total number of full-time-equivalent students this year is 13,242, compared with 13,540 last year. Secretary-treasurer Phil Turin said he has no explanation for the drop. “I’ve talked to colleagues in other districts and they’ve experienced similar drops,” he said. “Are people moving? Could be. We’ve got a consultant working with us on an updated enrolment projection. It’s a serious matter because that is how we get our funding.” The number of students in “bricks and mortar” schools declined by 2.2 per cent, which was partially made up by an increase of 60 full-time equivalent students in lear ning alter native and distance education programs. The district is currently 87 students below projections for next fall. Turin said finances won’t be negatively impacted by the drop because the district is in funding protection – a special grant that ensures it won’t receive less money than the year before despite declining enrolment. But the funding protection grant is slated

to decline by 1.5 per cent each year and he anticipates money troubles starting next year. While Turin hasn’t updated his financial forecast using the new enrolment numbers, he expects the district to be short of a balanced budget by at least $2 million. Turin said work will begin shortly on strategies to balance next year’s budget. “I’ve already had some preliminary discussions with senior staff,” he said. Jamie Brennan, school board chairman, said one concern for him is the unexpected drop in senior students – much of the drop occurred due to fewer Grade 11 and 12 students showing up than predicted. He worries that some of these students have dropped out or chosen other education options. “We’ re concer ned about this,” said Brennan. “Last year was a difficult year for the district because of the job action by teachers. It stopped us from any sort of promotion and reaching out.” Nanaimo school district enrolment has been on the decline since the early 2000s and officials don’t expect this to turn around for several years. Donna Reimer, school district spokeswoman, said the highest enrolment she could find was 17,473 students in 1997. The way the district reports enrolment has changed somewhat, but this is still a good indication of how much enrolment has declined, she said. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

ABOUT 260 CUPE workers without a contract for the past two years at Nanaimo university.

VIU support staff set for strike vote

The threat of job action is looming once again at Vancouver Island University. Support staff at the institution will hold a strike vote Tuesday (Oct. 30) and if workers are in favour of job action, the union could then serve a 72-hour notice to launch job action, which can mean anything from an overtime ban to rotating picket lines to a campus-wide strike. Support staff at the College of the Rockies and Vancouver Community College held a

similar vote on Thursday. If the VIU workers end up on strike, it would be the second time in recent years that classes are disrupted – a monthlong faculty association strike shut down the university in the spring of 2011. Stalled talks with the province have prompted the union to this action, said Ian McLean, B.C. colleges coordinator for the Canadian Union of Public Employees. Support workers at VIU have been without a contract for more than two years. About 260 CUPE workers are employed by the university in building maintenance, clerical support, the bookstore, food services and other support positions. Bargaining with the university has been a respectful process and the union has proposed a settlement package that falls within the gover nment’s mandate and is in line with what CUPE workers at other institutions have already received, said McLean. He said the problem is that VIU needs the approval of the Post Secondary Employers’ Association, but the association hasn’t given the institution the authority to conclude bargaining.

“We’re not asking for anything that is out of the ordinary,” said McLean. “The last thing our members want to do is withdraw their services. They went through a long strike last year. We can’t believe we’re even having to go down this path.” Steve Beasley, executive director of the VIU Students’ Union, said his union hopes the parties will conclude negotiations without any disruptions to students, but wants to remind people that the vote does not mean job action is a certainty. “It’s far too early to speculate about what will happen,” he said. “This is an issue that transcends VIU. It’s not an issue with the employer, it’s an issue with government.” Dan Hurley, VIU spokesman, said in an e-mailed response that the university is aware of the strike vote and respects CUPE’s decision. He said the university remains committed to working with the union’s bargaining team to reach a fair, negotiated settlement. As negotiations are ongoing, the institution is unable to comment further. Matt Gordon, PSEA spokesman, said in an e-mailed response that the strike vote is a normal part of the bargaining process, but the association is hopeful negotiations will lead to an agreement. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Leaky valve leads to blaze A homeowner suffered burns to his arm while getting a propane tank fire under control Thursday. The blaze broke out under the sun deck of a home on the 2400 block of Glenayr Drive shortly after 5 p.m. when the man lit his barbecue. Dave Leigh, Nanaimo Fire Rescue fire prevention officer, said there was a leak around the valve of the propane tank. “He turned the gas on on the tank and the ignitor on the barbecue wasn’t working so he went to get a hand-held ignitor,� Leigh said. “When he ignited it, it fired up the gas that was leaking below and he burned his arm when he was trying to get the tank out.� The man’s action prevented damage to the home, but he suffered blisters to one arm wrestling the tank from under the barbecue and carrying it out to a lawn, away from the house.

False letter lands sentence A Campbell River man convicted of drug trafficking charges and given a conditional sentence had his sentence overturned and pleaded guilty to obstructing justice. John Edward MacCorquodale, 52, was arrested by the Nanaimo RCMP Municipal Drug Squad in July 2007 for possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. MacCorquodale pleaded guilty to the trafficking charges in 2010. At his sentencing hearing MacCorquodale presented letters of support from his family, friends and his doctor in Campbell River. Suspicions arose around the authenticity of the documents from his physician. The physician was contacted and in June 2012 police verified those documents were false. MacCorquodale was sentenced to 18 months in jail.

B.C. JOBS

Nanaimo News Bulletin Saturday, October 27, 2012

www.nanaimobulletin.com

Future looks bright for B.C.’s tourism industry F

or some, a dream job would be a vacation planner – for themselves. Vacationing in B.C. can take so many forms that it would indeed be a fulltime job. The tourism and hospitality industry is an extremely diverse industry with more than 400 different occupations – including occupations that lead to long-term careers, as well as those that fit well for those seeking part-time work, including students or older workers not yet ready to retire. British Columbia’s tourism industry will be a leader in provincial job growth as businesses look to fill 101,000 new job openings by 2020, according to a study of labour demand and supply by go2, the B.C. tourism industry’s human resource association. The Tourism Labour Market Strategy, released in the spring of 2012 by go2, sets out the plan to recruit, retain and train the workers needed to keep pace with the growth projected for the

industry. Nearly half of the 101,000 openings will be new jobs created by the tourism industry across the province, adding 44,220 more jobs to the provincial workforce by 2020. The other approximately 57,000 openings are due to replacements (retirements). “The labour strategy coordinated by go2 is a key pillar of industry growth in the province. Without it, we simply wouldn’t have the skilled workers in place to deliver the visitor experience throughout B.C.,” said Lana Denoni, chairwoman of the Tourism Industry Association of British Columbia. B.C.’s location, bordered by the Rocky Mountains in the east and the Pacific Ocean in the west, makes it unique within Canada. Its mountain and coastal scenery, opportunities for summer sailing, winter skiing, and other activities such as fishing or sightseeing in coastal or inland waters or experiencing its cities, all make it a world-class destination.

Tourism helps to diversify B.C.’s economy and also brings new community services to permanent residents. The tourism and hospitality industry is now the single largest “primary resource industry” in the province, generating an annual real GDP of more than $6.4 billion in 2010, ahead of forestry, mining, oil and gas extraction, and agriculture. Tourism and hospitality generated $13.4 billion in annual revenue in 2010. Overall, between 2004 and 2010, industry revenues grew by a total of 25.5

per cent, representing an average annual growth rate of 4.2 per cent. The provincial government’s Gaining the Edge: A Five-year Strategy for Tourism in British Columbia, targets revenue growth of five per cent a year that will top $18 billion in tourism spending by 2016. The fastest growing sectors for tourism-job growth over the next decade are expected to be recreation, entertainment and travel services. There are an estimated 17,943 tourism-related businesses across the province, employing

about 260,000 workers, or 10.8 per cent of B.C.’s total labour force of 2.4 million people. More than 80 per cent of tourism’s new job openings are projected to come in food and beverage services (43,410 openings), recreation and entertainment (20,530 openings) and the accommodation sector (18,920 openings). “After several years of slow labour growth, the tourism industry is poised to expand,” said Arlene Keis, chief executive officer of go2. “Labour shortages are already being felt in places like Northern B.C., the Thompson Okanagan and in the Rockies regions. By 2016, the crunch will be more acute throughout the province. The tourism industry often provides people with their important first job and sets them on their career path. Tourism is also the largest employer of youth, with one in four British Columbians under the age of 24 working in the industry. Ken Hammer, a

professor of Vancouver Island University’s tourism management program, said the potential for major growth in the industry is here because B.C. and particularly the Island offers a world-class product. “I travel a lot and what I hear is a lot of interest in our area, especially the Island,” he said. “It has been a little slow without the Americans coming here, but businesses have adjusted their tourism strategies to attract Canadians to visit.” Hammer said tourism is a global product and has required a change in thinking. “The support of the government is here, the education system is here and from that comes new graduates entering the workforce who have new ideas about the industry and that’s exciting,” he said. “We’re starting to get that we have to develop new tourism products within tourism products. “The potential is great if we get everyone operating together.” editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Stories continue to be told of former cult leader

◆ From /1 After his epiphany, Wilson, a slim man with a short, pointed beard and dark eyes, produced teachings on which he based his spiritual movement, and recruited wealthy followers from across England and the United States. In 1927 he created the Aquarian Foundation based upon teachings of the Theosophical Society, and had his followers build homes and cabins near the foundation’s headquarters at Cedarby-the-Sea. Some of those buildings remain today, and whispers of hauntings exist. At its peak, the Aquarian Foundation had 2,000 members all over the world, many of whom regularly sent large sums of money. One man, a poultry baron from Florida, arrived at Cedar-bythe-Sea and turned over $90,000, a sum worth more than $1 million today, according to Oliphant’s book.

B

rother XII’s followers were often important people with deep pockets and political ties, but an insurrection took place within the ranks of the Aquarian Foundation when Wilson announced he was the reincarnation of an Egyptian god. This rift, along with allegations that Wilson was misusing foundation

funds while having extramarital affairs, caused the foundation to collapse, though he proceeded on with loyal followers and new recruits. As time passed, he became paranoid and dictatorial, and he fortified his Island kingdom on DeCourcy Island while amassing 43 large jars full of gold. Wilson insisted all assets be converted to gold, wrote Oliphant, because he believed that only gold would retain its value if the stock market crashed or banks failed. Some believe the jars of gold were hidden when Brother XII, in a fit of rage during a final revolt by his followers, destroyed the colony and his flagship, the sailboat Lady Royal. Many have tried to locate the fortune over the years, digging throughout DeCourcy Island, dismantling the cabins and searching nearby caves, but none have found the treasure.

F

or many of his faithful followers and investors, Brother XII sent out invitations with the lure of spectacular hunting and fishing, said Mike Gogo, whose father, John Gogo, ran a logging operation on DeCourcy in the late 1920s, the same time the Aquarian cult was at its peak. Gogo dismisses Brother XII’s spiritual abilities. “My old man told me

a whole different story,” said Gogo. “He told me that this Brother XII would invite all of these guys up. He said there was great hunting and fishing, and all these business guys from Seattle and San Francisco would come up and there would be prostitutes there dressed up like they were working maids. Those maids were very good looking and very obliging.” Libido met isolation, and the inevitable happened. “He documented all of these activities one way or another and he blackmailed them. There’s

probably not another person who could have told you that story other than my father,” said Gogo. Gogo’s son, David, acquired Brother XII’s dining room table which he has in his house. “It was found in one of the buildings out there,” said David Gogo. “A guy was using it as a work bench and had nailed some plywod to it. When they took it off they realized it was this gorgeous, 10-foot long fir table.” He outbid a Vancouver law firm for the item to keep it in the community, and diners at the table

now look over a field where Gogo’s great-grandfather grew potatoes, which he sold to Brother XII’s community. Other artifacts remain as well, along with buildings like the Mystery House (also known as Center Building) at Cedarby-the-Sea and a building known as the Aquarian Place in Cedar. Eight years ago, the Nanaimo Museum hosted a Brother XII exhibit that featured the mystic’s printing press, typewriter, and a block of wood with writing on it, among other pieces.

D

avid Hill-Turner, curator for the museum, said the original Brother XII exhibit was well-attended, but some also felt a hesitancy to bring the subject up. “(We’ve) encountered people that say ‘oh, you don’t talk about that,’” said Hill-Turner. “It’s one of those evil, bad luck things. He was very charismatic and he was very good at separating people from their money.” To further the mystery, strange things happened when Brother XII was finally brought before the courts. “Prosecutors fainted, that sort or thing,” said Hill-Turner. “It added to his reputation.” One of the prosecutors that succeeded in bring-

ing Brother XII to trial was Victor Harrison, who later served as mayor of Nanaimo from 1925-1926 and 1938-1944. Though preserving the Bastion and creating Petroglyph Provincial Park, Harrison, who lived at 215 Newcastle Ave., gained the most respect for helping to end Brother XII’s cult. In 1931, Brother XII disappeared from the Nanaimo area and reportedly died in Switzerland in 1934, though some reports say he was seen in San Francisco with his lawyer after his alleged death. Surely long dead now, Brother XII has not been forgotten. In an e-mail to the News Bulletin from southeast Asia, Oliphant said a number of Wilson’s early letters, written when he was a young man, were recently discovered, and the present owner of Mystery House recently showed a documentary filmmaker through to revisit its eerie past. The Fringetastic Theatre Festival presented The Cult of Brother XII in August, a dark musical comedy that highlighted Wilson’s greed and his ability to attract and seduce wealthy women. “I suppose one might say there is something of a Brother XII revival taking place,” wrote Oliphant. There is, at least, among those who are willing to talk about it. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Kids must be Internet savvyy The international outpouring of shock, disbelief and grief at Amanda Todd’s death tells us much about how we use social media to connect and how little we understand the consequences of using it. It’s clear the worldwide web has opened a Pandora’s Box of issues among our young people, but when adults freely give up their privacy to a company that harvests their personal details for profit, it’s hard to expect children to know any better. This is not a case for shutting down the Internet – as impossible a task as stopping the tides – for the instant knowledge and communication it offers is a huge benefit. Nor is it a call to put more rules or laws in place to stop pornography, bullying, the distribution of hate messages and other horrible attributes of anonymous, instant and pervasive communication. Anti-bullying, child pornography and hate laws backed by enforcement obviously need to be in place, but the problem of child victimization isn’t easily stopped. The more walls that are erected, the more fun the challenge is for hackers and haters, the malware makers, the virusmongers, the attention-seekers and the sexually perverse. It’s an endless game of whack-a-mole, with solutions always just out of reach and more children at risk every day. It’s better to inoculate children against victimization so they can be more proactive about their own safety. Get them at school, in the home, at church and in the community centre. Children as young as five need to know how the Internet works. They need to know what risky behaviour is and the consequences of it. They need to know when online teasing becomes bullying, the difference between strangers and friends; and who to go to if they are being bullied.

I called her the ultimate flex pass. Eventually MS took its toll, robbing her of her sight, her mobility and her independence. That’s where the Chadwick blood rose to the surface. Never once did I hear her complain about the hand life dealt her. She always greeted me with a smile. Asking how I was doing, how was Peggy and my children. She took every curve ball thrown her way in stride, adjusting to the changes to her body and the pain it caused. Although I’m the big brother, I know I wouldn’t be a fraction as strong as she was. I could not keep up the fight she fought or find the will to continue on. While the family always knew the final chapter of Cindy’s life, you’re never completely prepared for the death of a loved one. It has been tough on us left behind. But I find solace in the fact she is in peace, now. She’s no longer in pain. I told her in those final minutes everything would be all right and she needn’t worry about anything. And I told her we would see each other again. Who knows – maybe she can get me to the front of that line, too. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Hard to see butts for the litter To the Editor, Re: Smokers need to clean up the mess, Opinion, Oct. 23. Just had to write a note because, yes, I am a smoker and I get so annoyed at those who pressure the heck out of those of us who have the habit. On his walk, did Chris Hamlyn stop and count the burger wrappers, the Tim Hortons cups, the 7-Eleven plastic cups, the Styrofoam food containers, the McDonalds bags with leftover food and ketchup on the road? It’s a convenient place for a garbage dump versus going to the dump.

NEWS BULLETIN FILE

Columnist should curb his comments about the litter created by smokers when the streets are filled with garbage created by everybody, says letter writer.

I live on Rock City Road and not only do I pick up

my cigarette butts when I have finished, I also pick up

the mounds of garbage that litters my street on an ongoing basis. The garbage that others litter our streets with is worse than the cigarette butts. Hamlyn needs to have a look around and see how most treat our environment. I am not paid to pick up this damned mess created by others, yet I do it because I have respect for our environment. Hamlyn shouldn’t direct blame on those of us who smoke when the kettle is black with other’s garbage strewn from one end of this city to the other. June Ross Nanaimo

Readers respond: Feedback on news items MP’s comments far from accurate To the Editor, Re: Nanaimo man on aid mission held by Israelis, Oct. 23. Nanaimo-Alberni MP James Lunney’s comments regarding my father, Jim Manly’s, humanitarian mission to contest the military blockade of Gaza are absolutely offensive. My father did not go crying for consular services or for his release from an Israeli jail, I sought help. He knew what he was getting into and I did what I could to support him. I alerted Foreign Affairs about my father’s health condition and asked them to let the Israeli government know because neither the Israeli government nor my family needed to see my father martyred for this cause, and rough treatment and tasering could have done that. As Canadian citizens, we have a right to consular services. Lunney states my father would be in good hands in Israeli detention, but the Canadian government’s own travel advisory states

that previous attempts to breach the navel blockade resulted in “death, injury, arrest and deportation.” During this illegal raid and abduction in international waters (a violation of Maritime law), passengers on the M.V. Estelle were tasered and beaten. A Greek MP was beaten in detention. Those politicians that supported segregation in the southern states issued similar warnings to activists who dared to join the freedom marches with Martin Luther King. They faced beatings, jail and murder, but they did the right thing. Lunney needs to do some reading. According to a

2010 UN Human Rights Council report, this military blockade is a violation of international law. It is a violation of UN Security Council resolution 1860. Collective punishment is illegal and immoral, the people of Gaza are no more deserving of punishment for the actions of Hamas than I am for the actions of the Harper regime. According to the UN report, Gaza in 2020: A liveable place?, the Gaza strip is in a humanitarian crisis. The released Israeli government document on red lines for food consumption in Gaza proves the Israeli government was ensuring that only enough food, (2,300 calories per person per day) was allowed into Gaza to keep the population from starving. At least my NanaimoCowichan MP, Jean Crowder, had the decency to contact me, express concern and work in the background for my father’s release. I pity those in Lunney’s riding who need his support.

Mission to Gaza exposes blockade To the Editor, Re: Nanaimo man on aid mission held by Israelis, Oct. 23. Israel’s blockade might be legal, but is it moral? Is it still ‘legal’ in international waters? Of course the M.V. Estelle’s mission is a propaganda stunt – its intent is to open the world’s eyes and expose the largest concentration camp in the world. Robert N. Handel Nanaimo

Malahat requires zero tolerance To the Editor, Re: Police patrols key to Malahat, Opinion, Oct. 20. My suggestion is to make the Malahat Drive a zerospeed tolerance zone. The fine for not adhering to the speed limit would be $100 per kilometre. Ten kilometres over the limit is a $1,000 fine. Drivers would either obey the speed limit or pay for the option of full-time patrols on the Malahat. J. Stadelmann via e-mail

Nurses’ contract deals with workload, training BY NIOMI PEARSON THE NEWS BULLETIN

B.C.’s nurses have ratified a new provincial contract with the Health Employers Association of B.C. and the Ministry of Health that will increase wages, improve patient care and provide more jobs and training hours for new graduates. “This contract has the most language in it than we’ve ever had in regards to dealing with nurse’s workload,” said Jo Taylor, chairwoman of the B.C. Nurses Union’s Pacific Rim branch. “Locally, that’s a big issue when so many of our units are always over capacity and not getting the extra staff for that.” According to the new contract, health employers will be required to replace nurses who are off sick or on leave for a scheduled shift, barring extenuating circumstances. “A lot of the units had guidelines where when the first sick call came in, don’t replace the RN, and when the second call came in, go to straight time only,” Taylor said. “Now the employer has to go all the way through the process for every sick call to replace them.” The contract also adds an equivalent of 2,125 more full-time registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses by 2016. “That will impact the workload because that means new jobs,” Taylor said. The contract also provides language around new graduates. In the past, the New Grad program, an option for health authorities, would provide grads with 15 weeks of full-time work to give them the opportunity to gain experience and gel their newly acquired skills. That number has been bumped up

That will impact the workload because that means new jobs. to 24-36 weeks. “We can be hopeful that our depleted casual pools will be able to get those new grads into casual positions,” Taylor said. Of the 32,000 registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses voting on the contract, 85 per cent voted in favour of the contract. Taylor said there was some concern amongst members regarding changes to the work week, which will increase to 37.5 hours from 36, effective next year. The contract also makes no change to nurse’s benefits. “Nurses are just saying, ‘I don’t want to have to work any more and give any more to the employer because I don’t have it in me,’ because they’re burnt out, a lot of them,” Taylor said. “We’re hopeful that because we’ve got all this workload language that we’ll be able to change their work environment and it won’t be as bad as they think it will be.” While some of the contract language will be implemented right away, other parts of the contract, such as the three-per cent hourly wage increase will take affect April 1, 2013. “There’s a lot of work to be done prior,” Taylor said. “We got some really good stuff out of it, and so we’re really excited to see this contract go forward.”

Currently 152 properties serviced by 109 organizations receive exemptions, including 39 church properties, 51 non-profit organizations, seven senior citizen’s housing facilities and six community care facilities. City parks and other municipal buildings also receive exemptions. The squash club is still required to pay taxes for the lounge portion of the facility.

countries looking for cheap food. These companies are promising 20-40 per cent returns. So what is land grabbing? To some, it’s just another tool to make money out of natural resources, which is the way speculators and bankers think. But I am very suspicious of any activity which is more focused on money than impact on people and environments. After the money is made – and taken by the people who have come between the resource and the people who were using that resource – the real sustainability of the place has been destroyed and large numbers of people are left without the means to survive. More than 60 per cent of investments in agricultural land by foreign investors between 2000 and 2010 were in developing

countries with serious hunger problems. However, two-thirds of those investors plan to export everything they produce on the land. Nearly 60 percent of global land deals in the past decade are to grow crops that can be used for biofuels. In my view, that is shortterm gain for a few, which is by no means worth the destruction of real wealth assets that combined land and labour sustainably. Oxfam International and Oxfam Canada are working to turn around the human rights abuses of the current land-grabbing rush for maximum profit. They have a project called GROW (see www.oxfam.org/ grow) which aims to curb the arrogance of foreign speculators and demand inclusion of all affected by the new wave of industrial farming schemes.

V.I., LANGLEY play for Cullen Cup today.

BY GREG SAKAKI

We’ve found ways to win football games and that’s the biggest thing we can draw on.

THE NEWS BULLETIN

Quickfacts ◆ V.I. RAIDERS play the Langley Rams today (Oct. 27) in the B.C. Football Conference final.

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Langley Rams receiver Nate White, left, is separated from the football by V.I. Raiders defensive back Ariel Fabbro during a B.C. Football Conference game last month.

In their minds, Caledonia Park is perfect for playoff football. As the weather gets wet, the grass field becomes a mucky marsh, and any team used to artificial turf is bound to get bogged down. “Maybe the track and the field and everything else really allow us to

compete with such a fast all-star-style team,” Blokker said. “So having it at our park in front of our fans is a big thing for us.” The Raiders beat the Rams at Caledonia in last year’s B.C. final, and V.I. has won the Cullen Cup six years in a row. “ W h a t eve r yo u ’ ve

Game day: Raiders, Rams go at it One team will hoist a trophy and host the Canadian Bowl. The other will wonder, ‘what if ’? The V.I. Raiders and the Langley Rams take to the field at Caledonia Park today (Oct. 27) for the B.C. Football Conference championship game. Ever since the teams tied 31-31 back in Week 2 of the season, it’s seemed a sure bet that they were on a collision course for the BCFC final. “It was pretty clear that we were definitely going to be the top two teams, battling it out,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach. And that’s what will h a p p e n t o d ay. T h e Raiders defeated the Okanagan Sun 34-8 in one semifinal, while the Rams shut out the Westshore Rebels 33-0 in the other. So both combatants are on a roll, as tends to be the case in any championship game. “We’ve got a lot of momentum right now,” said Glenn Boyce, Raiders linebacker. “Everybody’s excited, everybody’s really confident. But it’s a one-game season right now.” Considering that it’s a do-or-die game, the Raiders are grateful they’re the ones who earned home-field advantage.

done in [past years] means absolutely squat,” Blokker said. “What we can draw on is what we’ve done in the regular season and how we’ve competed. We’ve been in these different situations and we’ve found ways to win football games and that’s the biggest thing that we can draw on.”

◆ KICKOFF TIME is at 1 p.m. at Caledonia Park and tickets will be available at the gate at a cost of $15 for adults or $12 for seniors and students. Children aged five and under get in free.

GRID BITS … A preview of today’s game was published in Thursday’s News Bulletin and can still be accessed online at www.nanaimobulletin. com/sports. A recap of today’s game, with interviews, stats and photos will be published online tonight. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Clips try to make most of home ice The Nanaimo Clippers gave their fans a few reasons to cheer this month, but they would have hoped to inspire more applause. Tonight (Oct. 28) is the team’s seventh and final home game of the month at Frank Crane Arena, as the Clips host the Powell River Kings. “It’s a place where we can’t be giving away points,” said Trevor Fitzgerald, Clippers captain. Going into the weekend the Shipmen had won just one of their five home games this month, so they were determined to get some points out of last night’s game against the Cowichan Valley Capitals and tonight’s tilt with the Kings. “It’s our home barn and we definitely have to take advantage of that, because later on we’re going to be travelling a lot,” said Michael McNicholas, Clippers forward. In November, for example, Nanaimo will play only three of its 11 games at Frank Crane. So they’ ll appreciate another go-round at their home rink as they host the four-time defending Coastal Conference champions from Powell River. “When our team shows up we play really well and I think we can beat anyone,” McNicholas said. “We just need to have everybody working hard.” GAME ON … The Clippers and Kings face off tonight (Oct. 27) at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.

Bucs down Generals Nanaimo’s Lucas Franssen scored a natural hat trick and goalie Cameron Large stopped all 29 shots as the Buccaneers blanked the Oceanside Generals 5-0 Thursday night in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. Franssen’s goals gave his team a 3-0 lead midway through the second period. Daniel Foglietta and Beau Blanaru did the rest of the damage for Nanaimo. The win bumped Nanaimo (7-9-0-0) into second place in the North Division. The Bucs and Generals meet again tonight (Oct. 27) in Oceanside. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

VIU, DOUGLAS the favourites to get to provincial final.

The soccer rivalry between the VIU Mariners and the Douglas Royals could extend to provincials, and then, perhaps, to nationals. Vancouver Island University’s men’s soccer team begins play at the Pacific Western Athletic Association championships today (Oct. 27) in

Squamish. The No. 2-seeded Mariners are taking on the No. 3-seeded Thompson Rivers University WolfPack, and should the M’s win, they’re likely to play the top-seeded Douglas Royals in tomorrow’s provincial final. The Royals get a host berth to Canadian Colleges’ Athletic Association nationals, so the Mariners are trying to join them there. Douglas (10-1-3) was the only team to beat VIU (8-1-5) during the PacWest season, a 3-2 game earlier this month on the mainland. The Royals scored the winner in the 85th minute of that one. “We know that we can play with them, we know what it takes, that we’re going to have

to play as hard as we can. And they know they’re going to have to step it up,” said Bill Merriman, coach of the M’s. Douglas is led by striker Sahil Sandhu, whose 15 goals this season were most in the league, but VIU’s goalkeeper Robbie Cochrane had the league’s best goals-against average. M’s midfielder Stephen Ewashko said the M’s are the most well-rounded team and quite capable of beating the Royals. “There’s nothing special about them,” he said. “Their thing is they have some good individual players that are, by far, top players in the league, but I think we’re the top team in the league, still.”

Rapids swim better than ever

With colder fall weather now upon us, swimming at the outdoor Kin Pool in Bowen Park has understandably come to an end. Which means another season is in the books for the Nanaimo White Rapids Swim Club. Among many highlights, the White Rapids this year handily won the Vancouver Island championships in Courtenay. Then in August, the club hosted the B.C. Summer Swimming Association championships at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre. It was the first time the local organization had hosted the prestigious event and it was an unqualified success. Not only did the White Rapids put on a well-run meet, the club swimmers came through with a bestever fifth-place finish. The club’s accomplishments were celebrated recently, as the White Rapids held their year-end awards night and annual general meeting. My thanks to club secretary Diane McGonigle for sending word of award winners… Receiving acknowledgment as top novice

Stop-gap measures only delay traffic congestion Without transportation, life would grind to a halt, as it did here during the huge snowstorm of 1996-97. So no surprise that last month’s energy article about ways we could become more intelligent, cost-effective and sustainable in our transportations options drew more comments (positive and negative) than any other article published in the six years since these articles began. This high priority is also reflected in the outcome of a process Nanaimo held earlier this year. It engaged in an open process for residents, business

TIGHTENING MORTGAGE rules, a drop in housing starts and unoccupied units suggest decline.

After brisk activity in the first half of this year, growth in Canada’s residential construction industry is expected to moderate through the second half of 2012 and into 2013, according to the Conference Board of Canada’s Summer 2012 outlook for the industry. “T he residential market is destined for

a soft landing, which means that it will no longer be able to fuel Canada’s post-recession growth,” said Michael Burt, director of industrial economic trends. “Next year is expected to be particularly lacklustre, as housing starts and industry profits are both forecast to decline.” Most of the weak-

ness will be concentrated in the multiples segment of the industry, where a significant number of units remain unoccupied. In the next year, the industry will also have to adjust to another tightening of mortgage lending rules. And factors such as relatively low consumer confidence, modest job and income g rowth, and high household debts will dampen the overall residential construction outlook. Despite these challenges, the industry remains healthy. The ratio of homeowner equity to real estate assets remains close to the levels of the past 20 years, which indicates that borrowing amounts are still in line with property prices. And low mortgage delinquency rates are further evidence that Canadians are doing a good job of managing their mortgage debts. Through the first

seven months of 2012, housing starts surged 15 per cent over the similar period in 2011, due to a 23 per cent increase in multipleunit construction. Starts are forecast to decline by 7.3 per cent in 2013 to less than 200,000 units, and regional markets that are exposed to more risks, such as Vancouver and Toronto, will feel more of an effect. Strong demand and moderate cost pressure will enable the industry to post pretax profits of $4.6 billion this year, a 31 percent gain over 2011. However, profits are expected to dip to $4.1 billion next year, before steady growth resumes in 2014. Future gains, however, will be limited by current high home ownership rates and an expected rise in mortgages rates. As a result, the industry’s profits are not expected to return to their pre-recession levels until 2016.

HAPPY ENDINGS: Timid, Mr. Pickles & Kimchi

After arriving at the shelter with his siblings, Timid was the last to be adopted. After staying with the shelter during our recent ringworm outbreak, Timid proved himself to be a quiet, well behaved puppy who had the shelter staff falling madly in love with him. Calm and sweet, he acted more like a wise old dog than a rowdy pup, and everyone was excited for the day when Timid would land himself in his own forever home. Once the Timid & Pascha shelter reopened, he certainly didn’t have to wait long! His new family made the trip from Timid & Pascha Port Alberni, and Timid now spends his days Puss N Boots playing with the other dog in the family, Pascha, Veterinary Hospital Deluxe Boarding for Cats Ltd. who is also a Nanaimo SPCA alumni.

Mr. Pickles

Mr. Pickles is a little sweet hamster who has been at the shelter since August. He was adopted and now lives with an 8 year old boy. Mr. Pickles doesn’t always like to be held, but he loves his big, new cage and daily treats of veggies! He spends his days sleeping and his nights investigating, digging and chewing. He is a great climber and loves to scale to the top of the cage and back down again. His adopter loves to watch him stuff his cheeks and make nests out of stuffing. His nickname is Pork Chop. Welcome home, Mr. Pickles!

Alba

Ace is a lovely dog who came to us because he had a urinary blockage and needed surgery. He has had the urinary stones removed and is now healing up nicely. Ace is a confident and happy Ace guy and will do well in most homes. He will require a prescription diet for life to help prevent more stones from forming. He may also require more surgeries in the future if stones reoccur. To find your special companion, please visit the SPCA at 2200 Labieux Road or call 758-8444 for more info.

In Memory of

Jan Jensen

Jan passed away August 26, 2012. Many of us knew Jan as assistant manager of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Old Book Exchangeâ&#x20AC;? at itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original location in Terminal Park Mall where she worked for many years until she moved on to engage even more customers at Pressed for Time dry cleaners. We remember Jan for her quick and clever wit and if you were a customer of hers, you may have been teased or even slightly insulted. It meant that she liked you! Jan had a big heart, a twinkle in her eye and a warm smile for everyone. Her customers were her friends and she was a font of information about what was going on in town and what was happening in peoplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives. Though her health has been in decline these last few years, she still found enough energy, time and thoughtfulness to volunteer at the Kiwanis Seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Village. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey Kiddo,â&#x20AC;? we miss you.

Lois Ajas j (Nelson)

On Friday, October 19, 2012 Lois Marie Ajas (Nelson) passed away in Vancouver B.C, at the age of 82, after a short illness. Survived by her daughter, Cathy (Don) Perreault; granddaughters, Andrea Charette and Katrina (Andrew) Peters; grandson, Matthew (Kara) Perreault; great-grandchildren: Justin, Rayne, Jayden, William, Nolan, Payton and Josie; sister, Bonnie (Marlin) Daniels; brother, Ralph (Margaret) Nelson, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by her loving husband, Eugene Ajas and her parents, Arthur and Ella Mae Nelson. A celebration of Loisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held at First Memorial Funeral Home, 1720 Bowen Rd, Nanaimo on Monday, November 5, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, charitable contributions may be made to the Salvation Army in Loisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name.

Charles McDonald (Mac) Atkinson May 26, 1923 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Oct 23, 2012 Mac passed away peacefully at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital after a short illness and a long, healthy and busy life. Mac was born in Listowel, Ontario to Arthur Atkinson (born in Leeds, England) and Clara Atkinson (nee Waddell born in Moffat, Scotland). He moved with his family which included his older brother Bill, to the Pengarth District in Saskatchewan where his parents had met and his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extended family were. Due to the depression and uneconomic farm life, they chose to move to Abbotsford, British Columbia when Mac was 9 yrs old. Mac spent his youth in Abbotsford and graduated from High School in 1941. Following his graduation, Mac joined the Navy instead of the Air Force to respect his parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wishes, since his brother was killed while navigating a plane in March of 1942. In the Navy Mac trained in Vancouver and Ontario before going to St Hyacinthe Quebec for signalman training. He then went east up the St Lawrence to Halifax and then onto Newfoundland before heading to Scotland for active duty in the North Atlantic. He served on convoy duty until the end of the war and was discharged on Nov 12th, 1945. Following the war, Mac went to UBC and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1949 just a week before his marriage to Dorothy Mallett, his wife of 63 years. They met at BC Electric in Vancouver where they both worked. They first lived in Vancouver and then in North Vancouver where their daughter Pam was born. Mac worked for GMAC and then Seaboard Finance before moving to Nanaimo in 1964, where he was a credit manager at the Nanaimo and District Credit Union. He subsequently worked for a law firm and completed his work career as a Real Estate Appraiser for Vancouver Island Appraisals. Mac was a long time member of Brechin United Church, the Nanaimo Horticulture Society and The Nanaimo Golf Club, as well as being an originating member of the Nanaimo Dance Club. He drove for Meals on Wheels for 25 years before giving this up less than 2 years ago. He was a member of the Probus Club and a past member of the Legion and Toastmasters. He played bridge and tennis with friends weekly up until this past month before he was hospitalized. Mac loved his garden and was giving out beans and tomatoes the day he went into hospital. He was good to his daughter and grandchildren and loved his son-in-law like a son. He is predeceased by his parents and brother and is survived by his wife Dorothy; his daughter Pam Brown (Allan); granddaughters Cydney Shapiro (Jordan), Cayley Brown, and Caroline Brown, as well as his great grandchildren, Braxton and Chloe. Mac was loved by many and will be very missed by his family, many good friends and neighbours. As a doctor said to us in the hospital, Mac put in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;good innings.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; A Celebration of Life will be held at Brechin United Church, 1998 Estevan Road, Nanaimo, BC on Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 at 2pm. Arrangements by First Memorial Funeral Services. 250.754.8333
