Handmade knits, woven scarves and blankets, handspun yarns —just a few of the hundreds of items you’ll find at the Woolgatherers’ Fall Sale this Saturday at Fallen Alders Hall. The guild has had a busy year, moving from their old location to a new meeting place in Fallen Alders Hall. But before they could move, they painted their new studio, put down new flooring, put up shelves and moved much of the guild equipment to the new space. The members were also busy weaving tea-towels, knitting caps, mittens and the always popular scarves in preparation for the major sale of the year. The admission is $2, which includes tea and a chance at a door prize. It happens Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — Woolgatherers

Owner of dogs is reported dead Record Staff Edith Manseau, the woman in the middle of a dogfight with the Comox Valley Regional District passed away Monday, according to reports posted online. Chum and Champ, the two Newfoundland dogs belonging to Black Creek resident Manseau and her husband Jacques, were being held at the Comox Valley SPCA following seizure spurred from a Jan. 5 complaint of a vicious dog attack. Last week, the dogs were released to the couple temporarily as per an agreement with the CVRD due to a delay in a decision after the conclusion of a hearing for an application to destroy the dogs, brought forth

by the Comox Valley Regional District. Manseau was not with her husband last Thursday at the SPCA to pick up the Newfoundlands, as Jacques indicated she wasn’t feeling well. Irene Foley, a friend of the Manseaus, and Facebook administrator for the Chum and Champ v.s. CVRD group, posted to the page that Edith passed away Monday at 3:45 a.m. at St. Joseph’s General Hospital with Jacques at her side. The Animal Advocacy Project, a blog written by Patricia Miles, posted Saturday that Edith was rushed to the emergency room Wednesday night. Calls to the family were not returned by Record deadline. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Wall to offer some flood protection Renee Andor Record Staff

The first phase of the Tsolum River Flood Wall project is expected to be complete by the end of the year. Mark DeGagne of McElhanney Consulting Services gave Courtenay council an update about the first phase, flood plain mapping and modelling, of the project during Monday’s council meeting. Since last spring, McElhanny Consulting Services and Kerr Wood Leidal have been studying Courtenay’s flood plain; aerial photography and LiDAR (like radar with a laser), flood plain mapping, flood forecast simulations and flood mitigation options for the long- and short-term are all part of the study. Noting the floods in the Lewis Park area of Courtenay during 2009 and 2010, he presented a working model simulation of flood-

ing from the Courtenay, Puntledge and Tsolum rivers — which he said the team is just putting the final touches on. According to a Courtenay staff report, “having an accurate model illustrating flooding extents is critical to ensuring the Tsolum River Flood Wall is constructed in the right location and at the correct elevation.” The proposed flood wall is along the old channel of the Tsolum River near the Old Island Highway and the base of Ryan Road, according to the study. Courtenay received provincial funding approval for two thirds of the project cost to a maximum of $471,000 in January and over $700,000 has been set aside for the project in Courtenay’s 2012 Capital Budget. DeGagne noted public meetings were held in June to introduce the project and request feedback. Another public meeting is scheduled

for mid-November, which will show flood scenarios. The project team will then simulate up to three different mitigation options, including the flood wall, and go back to the public to display those options for feedback. Final recommendations to council are expected by the end of the year. “From there, the City will be able to determine whether the flood wall is a worthwhile project, or something along those lines, and go into the next two phases of the project,” said DeGagne. According to the City staff report, the second phase of the project includes project approvals and design with an estimated completion date of March. The third phase includes tendering and construction with an estimated completion date of December 2013. DeGagne pointed out the options in his report will not only include “hard options”

like building dykes or raising roads, but will also provide planning tools for the City in terms of bylaw and land use changes. “The flood construction level is obviously something that’s going to be dynamic — if we do get the climatic change and sea level rise that we’re predicting, you’ll be able to know in the future what to expect and how to plan for it so that’s another important part of this tool,” he told council. He said the study will also look at tide levels in the Courtenay River Estuary because storm surge combined with high tides is a factor in flooding. “The function of the river is both a function of tide levels and what’s coming down the river, so even though you may not have a whole lot of water coming down the river, if you have a significant southeaster, you may have a significant impact,” he said. writer@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Quake wakeup call for the Big One No real shaking going on in Comox Valley Renee Andor Record Staff

Although most Comox Valley residents likely didn’t feel a thing, Saturday evening’s earthquake should serve as a wakeup call, according to the Comox Valley Emergency Program (CVEP). “There really seems to be a complacency, but once something happens, people do get busy and they start asking for presentations and briefings and ‘Where can I get this information, where can I get that information?’ “ says the CVEP’s deputy emergency program co-ordinator Dave Carmichael. “We know that the Big One that everybody talks about is going to happen — we just don’t know when it’s going to happen — so we need to prepare.” A 7.7-magnitude earthquake — the strongest in Canada in over 60 years — struck off the coast of Haida Gwaii around 8 p.m. Saturday. A tsunami warning was issued for a number of low-lying coastal areas, including Port Hardy at the tip of Vancouver Island, and numerous aftershocks followed. Some people were evacuated, though the tsunami warnings were later lifted and evacuees were allowed to return home. Carmichael says he hasn’t heard from anyone who felt the quake in the Comox Valley and the CVEP only had to send out e-mails to members of the emergency program planning committee to let them know the earthquake happened. This part of the Island didn’t have a tsunami advisory, which he says is the lowest level of tsunami warning. Courtenay resident Nadja Recktenwald didn’t feel the earthquake — but saw it — when she was having

dinner with her sister. “We were sitting there just joking a little bit and having some good dinner conversation and we both looked up and went ‘Oh,’ the chandelier was swinging as if a monkey was hanging off of it,” recalls Recktenwald. “We never found out, until 10 minutes after, a friend had called

insurance papers, a copy of your birth certificate or passport, other important papers, some extra medication if needed, an extra pair of glasses, a bit of cash and a change of clothes. Other items listed on Public Safety Canada’s Your Emergency Preparedness Guide include water,

We were sitting there just joking a ❝ little bit and having some good dinner conversation and we both looked and went ‘Oh,’ the chandelier was swinging as if a monkey was hanging off of it.

Nadja Recktenwald and said ‘Oh did you feel anything?’ We just laughed about the chandelier; we didn’t feel anything.” While some people may have noticed small things like swinging chandeliers around here, people on the islands of Haida Gwaii and nearby places like Prince Rupert gave accounts of the ground moving like a wave. There are no reports of major damage or injuries and Carmichael noted the earthquake was a “sliding earthquake” which is generally a “low-damage” earthquake. Carmichael says the first thing to do in order to be prepared for an emergency situation is to create a ‘grab n’ go bag.’ He notes the bag should contain items like: copies of your

non-perishable food, a battery-powered radio, extra sets of keys and a flashlight, among other things. Carmichael says there should be one grab n’ go bag per person and that people should be prepared to

be self-sufficient for 72 hours in an emergency situation. He adds emergency operations centres would be set up by local governments and reception centres would be set up in places like gymnasiums and churches. Carmichael says it’s very important to register at a reception centre during an evacuation so that people know you’re safe — something he says is often overlooked by the public in emergency situations. The CVEP offers emergency preparedness presentations to anyone who would like to learn how to prepare for an emergency, and its website, www. comoxvalleyemergencyprogram.com, features links to a wealth of information. Overall, Carmichael notes the Comox Valley

is in a good situation when it comes to being prepared for emergencies. “It’s important for people to know that the Comox Valley is wellprepared,” he says. “We have excellent fire departments, we have very good policing, the folks who manage the infrastructure, either those working for the City of Courtenay or the folks who are hired by the Comox Valley Regional District, all those there, they are trained on how to get things better quickly.”

Hospital before council Rezoning makes first appearance at City Hall Record Staff The proposed Comox Valley Hospital will head into a critical next step at Monday’s Courtenay council meeting. Courtenay CAO Sandy Gray notes a rezoning application and a request to amend the City’s Official Community Plan are expected to come before Courtenay council during the meeting — which starts Nov. 5 at 4 p.m. in the council chambers of Courtenay City Hall at 830 Cliffe Ave. Council is expected to give consideration to the first and second readings of the proposed OCP and zoning amendment bylaws. If passed, a public hearing would go ahead later in the month. The Vancouver Island Health Authority would give a formal

presentation to council at the public hearing, and members of the public would have the chance to express their views as well. The public would also be able to send written submissions to the City of Courtenay before the public hearing, which would then become part of the official public record on the rezoning application. Meanwhile, VIHA held an open house

on the North Island Hospitals Project — which includes new hospitals for the Comox Valley and Campbell River by 2017 — in the Comox Valley last week. The open house focused on design building guidelines for the new hospitals. For more information on the project, visit VIHA’s website www. viha.ca and search for North Island Hospitals Project.

The Board of Education split its support for proposed renovation projects at Huband and Royston elementary schools evenly at last Tuesday’s board meeting. The Comox Valley School District can get grants up to $12,500 (plus a possible $5,000 further) through the School Community Connections program, which is designed to encourage more community use of school facilities and supports co-location of services. Huband Elementary School applied for funds to install a traverse climbing wall for its school gym. The climbing wall would be used in the school’s physical education program and could be used to train other teachers and interested community members. Royston Elementary School applied for money to renovate the school stage. A letter from the school noted the walls are chipped and need some paint, and the curtains are stained and shredded as they’re 45 years old. Trustees noted both projects were worthy of the grants and voted to split their support evenly between the two. The applications can now be sent off to government. •••

Regional district discussing pay Scott Stanfield Record Staff

Area A director Edwin Grieve planned to step away from his position as regional district board to freely discuss remuneration for elected officials at Tuesday’s CVRD board meeting. The item was discussed at the last committee of the whole, which he was chairing. “Proper protocol is you’re not supposed to chime in very much as chair,” he said. “I’m trying to argue for the increase in the electoral area directors. When you add up what the councillors get, in addition to what they get at the RD, it comes to over 30 grand for the Courtenay bunch.” Pay hikes would not go through until after the next municipal election. Grieve likens area directors to mayors, more so than councillors, considering the extent of their extra curricular involvement. Population-wise, the three areas are almost the size of Courtenay. “We are responsible for pretty well fourfifths of the land mass,” Grieve said. “It’s a little bigger job than most people realize.” Two weeks ago, directors considered a consultant’s recommended pay hikes too steep considering the state of the econ-

omy. Maurice Lamb reviewed pay, benefits and expenses of the board chair, municipal reps and area directors. The last review was in 2006. Municipal directors receive $10,377 and area directors $20,709. Grieve receives $33,161. For the new board starting January 2015, remuneration will be $11,000 for municipal directors and $25,000 for area directors. The board chair’s rate would fall to $29,604. The board did not like Lamb’s two-step plan with rates at 75 per cent for the first year, bumped for second year to $12,072, $31,128 and $29,604 for municipal, area and board chair respectively. Grieve planned to argue the case to go

with Lamb’s recommendation for the increase for area directors, especially since remuneration won’t be studied for another six years. It’s more about future directors who would not normally be able to afford to throw their hat in, Grieve said, adding he and Courtenay director Manno Theos need to take time off work to attend meetings. “It’s quite a juggling act,” Grieve said. “I couldn’t imagine myself doing this job when I had two kids.” Annual pay for the board is roughly .022 per cent of the total $56,538,459 district budget. “It’s a very, very small portion of the bigger picture and a big commitment,” Grieve said.

Cuban travel awaits

SEVEN-YEAR-OLD MIKAYLA VOLKERS of Comox and an Australian girl will sacrifice their hair Nov. 14 to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and awareness about the disease.

Girls raising diabetes awareness Mikayla Volkers, 7, of Comox has joined global forces with 11-year-old Australian Rebekah Holt. They are both raising awareness about Type 1 Diabetes, and raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, (JDRF) in a campaign the girls have dubbed Cut for a Cure. On Nov. 14, World Diabetes Day, on opposite sides of the world, both girls will get their lengthy hair chopped for their cause. Locally, Deb Deluca of Bellini Hair Studio is donating her haircutting services for Mikayla’s haircut finale. In Australia, featured on Sydney’s Sunrise Television, wellknown Aussie television personality and fellow diabetic, Rob Palmer, will ceremoni-

ously cut Rebekah’s hair. Type 1 Diabetes is an extremely challenging, lifethreatening disease that can strike people at any age. At present, there is no known prevention or cure of Type 1 Diabetes, but the global organization, JDRF, funds research in search of prevention, treatment and a cure for this disease. When Rebekah was only three years old, she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Since then, Rebekah and her family have dedicated much time and energy each year to do their part to increase public awareness about juvenile diabetes and to organize fundraisers to raise money for JDRF. This year, Rebekah set a $10,000 fundraising goal for

JDRF, and began a series of fundraising events; in doing so, she and her family were instrumental in motivating many others, including Mikayla’s family, halfway across the globe, to join in on their fundraising crusade. Mikayla set a $1,500 fundraising goal to assist toward the $10,000: she collected donations at her birthday party, is collecting pledges toward her hair cut, and her family is hosting a fundraiser at Courtenay’s Chances Casino. If you would like to donate money or simply see the girls’ progress, visit Mikayla’s fundraising page http://fundraise. teamcurediabetes.org.au/ria_ volkers. — Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Longtime loyal Lion lionized

BAYNES SOUND LIONS and Lioness members will wheel up Highway 19A this Sunday to contribute to the total raised at the annual Comox Valley Child Development Association Telethon.

Telethon trek nearing telethon will air live on Shaw TV Channel 4 from noon to 8 p.m. on Nov. 4. All money raised stays right here in the Comox Valley and supports children with special needs and their families. The Child Development Association is located at the corner of Third Street and Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay and last year served 798 children with special needs. Call 250-334-9200 on Sunday to donate, and visit www.cvcda. ca to learn about the CVCDA’s services. — Baynes Sound Lions and Lioness

The Baynes Sound Lions and Lioness are geared up and ready to roll. This Sunday, they will walk and roll to raise funds for the 37th annual Comox Valley Child Development Association Telethon. Come rain or shine, this dedicated and hard-working group of men and women will look for your support as they wheel up the Island from Fanny Bay to the Old Church Theatre on Harmston Avenue in Courtenay. It is all for a great cause — the

In recognition of his long service and dedication to Lionism, the Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club presented Lion Tom McNee recently with the prestigious Judge Brian Stevenson Fellowships Award. McNee has reached a significant milestone in Lionism by being a member for 50 years. He had first joined the Lions in Summerside, PEI in 1962. Being in the military, he was transferred to Comox, where he discovered there was no local Lions Club to join. He soon resolved this local shortcoming. During his long association with the Lions, Lion Tom has been a charter member of four clubs: Summerside, Comox, Courtenay and the Comox Valley Monarchs. He has served in many capacities in these clubs. He was involved with the creation of the Low Income Housing Society. To recognize outstanding Lions and other deserving recipients, past international president Judge Brian Stevenson has endorsed this fellowship, which recognizes community involvement or great achievement and is one of the greatest honours that can be bestowed in Lionism. The Comox Valley

Monarch Lions Club serves the community by distributing bursaries; Vanier Student Bursary, Coal Hills BMX, the Courtenay Recreational Association, Sid Williams Theatre, Child Development Association, CV Therapeutic Riding, Boys and Girls Club, Santa’s Workshop, Senior Peer Counselling, Relay For Life, Comox Valley Hospice, St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation, Glacier View Lodge, Courtenay Low Income Housing, Salvation Army, CV Community Foundation, Sonshine Lunch Club, Courtenay Museum, Food Bank, Comox Valley Search and Rescue other donations within the community. Their new community/fundraising project is selling 911 reflective address signs. Every

second counts for an emergency vehicle to locate an address — even two minutes can mean a difference between life and death. All the money raised from this project goes

directly back into the community. The signs sell for $40 and you can place your order by calling Lion April at 250338-9602 or visiting www.911reflectivesign. ca. — Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club

Smashing those pumpkins The Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) service is holding its sixth annual Pumpkin Smash. The fun family event keeps thousands of kilograms of pumpkin — that aren’t being turned into pies or muffins — out of our landfills. The Pumpkin Smash will take place over two days in Campbell River and in the Comox Valley. In the Comox Valley, the events will take place at the compost education centre (4795 Headquarters Rd. in Courtenay) this Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Residents are encouraged to bring their jack-o-lanterns and smash them into compost rather than simply throwing them away. The CSWM service also invites residents to share a photo of their carved pumpkin before celebrating its last hurrah at one of these events. E-mail a

picture of you or a family member with the carved pumpkin to contest@comoxvalleyrd.ca; this makes you eligible for cool eco-friendly prizes and public notoriety by being posted on the CVRD social media sites. “Over the years many families have come to these community events with some creative and unique carved pumpkins, and the photo contest is an

opportunity to showcase them in the community,” said Koreen Gurak, CVRD’s manager of communications. Participants are reminded to remove all objects such as candles and tea lights from their pumpkins prior to smashing.

PEARSON COLLEGE STUDENTS Kuenzang Om, Thimphu, Bhutan; Ela Hefler, Ontario; Jessica Arseneau, New Brunswick; Amit Chand, Savu Savu, Fiji; and Helen Ran, Suzhou, China (left to right) volunteered last week at the Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society.

Riding society assisted to the idea of new ways you can help people in a more natural way. I love the way they take care of people here (at CVTRS).” Jessica thinks she’d now like to pursue a career in therapeutic riding. Kuenzang, from Bhutan, had never touched a horse before. Helping out has taught her that horses “are spiritual animals and they can sense the spirit of the person coming to them.”

Amid reflected appreciation, as did the other students, toward their host families, saying, “It would not be possible without them.” CVTRS thanks these very inspirational students.

The Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society (CVTRS) was blessed last week with youthful energy from around the world. Five students enrolled in Pearson College (PC) in Victoria are assisting the CVTRS as part of their project week. Each term, the PC sends their students out into the community beyond to pursue projects of their choice that can be creative, outdoor, service or leadership. Their students come from every corner of the world. According to PC, one unifying characteristic is that each student is committed to “making change happen in diverse and powerful ways.” The project week “is as meaningful as students choose to make it, as their interests, passions, creativity and energy drive it.” Their energy this week has driven many positive and welcome changes for the expanding facilities at CVTRS. The students have been learning how to groom the horses, they have been moving hay, preparing the ground for a much-needed round pen and most exciting, clearing the way for a new community garden. Asked what brought them to Comox Valley, Jessica, from New Brunswick, said she “was interested in horses before, but this experience opened me

The Sid Williams Theatre Society will present a performance by Cappella Artemisia on Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m. This 10-member ensemble, from Bologna, Italy, consists of six vocalists, two cornetti (early wind instrument) and continuo (harpsichord and gamba) performing works from the 16th and 17th centuries. For the most ardent early music admirer, experiencing the incredible sound of the 10-member ensemble Cappella Artemisia live may be a no-brainer. But for those unsure what to expect from a

performance of this style, Times-Colonist contributor Kevin Bazzana encourages you to check it out. In an Oct. 25 article, he wrote, “Among the best concerts I heard last season was the one that sounded the dustiest and most esoteric on paper ... the music, beautifully performed, proved to be unexpectedly rich and moving, and was all the more pleasurable for being unfamiliar.” Bazzana continued, “However obscure, this music, far from being dry, turns out to be gorgeous, judging from See CAPPELLA, 14

Hot time at Potter’s with Davis will make wonderful additions to any home dÊcor. Laurie has recently graduated from North Island College in the fine arts program and we are thrilled that she represents both the Potters’ Place and NIC so beautifully. Be it a teapot, a bowl, or a vase — Laurie makes beautiful representations of all of these. You can see an extended body of her work throughout this month of November at the Potter’s Place. The artist will be in the gallery Nov. 13 and 27 from 10 to 5 p.m.

Cappella Artemisia a treat for ears Continued from 13

Cappella Artemisia’s recording of works by Cozzolani — one of seven CDs it has released.� The musicians of Cappella Artemisia are all established performers in the field of early music and actively collaborate with other ensembles. They present an intriguing program of recently unearthed vocal and instrumental music of the 16th and 17th centuries, much of it written behind convent walls where both composition and performance were officially forbidden. Convent life represented virtually the only honourable choice for women outside of marriage, and many young Italian girls inhabited the monasteries. Music was practised there every day for it literally represented their voice in the outside world, and its excellent quality drew hoards of listeners from throughout Europe. “It was an early example of the women’s movement, expressed through the power

of music,� said Candace Smith, Cappella Artemisia founder-director. “And of course, it also reveals these extraordinarily beautiful works, often written in secret, and in many cases now being heard for the first time since they were first created.� Smith joins the ensemble on their Western Canada tour as a featured guest, along with her husband and world-celebrated cornetto virtuoso Bruce Dickey. Smith (originally from California but living in Europe since 1975) is a mezzosoprano and has been involved for many years with historical music written by women, in addition to her interests in contemporary music, musical theatre, and cabaret. Dickey is a founding member of Concerto Palatino and well-known throughout the world of early music for his pioneering work on the instrument. Founded in Bologna, Italy, in 1991, this is “early music� with a difference. They pres-

ent a feast of glorious and rarely heard music. With an informative and illuminating commentary, they also open a social and historical window onto the women’s movement of an earlier era. Since its inception the ensemble has received critical and popular praise, both for the rarity and originality of its repertoire, and for the high quality of its performances. Cappella Artemisia has appeared at such prestigious venues as the Festival of Flanders, The Holland Fes-

tival of Early Music, Il Festival Monteverdiano di Cremona, the Osterfestival in Innsbruck, the WDR Festival der Alten Musik in Herne, the Tage Alter Musik in Regensburg, and I Concerti al Quirinale (Rome). Now for the first time, they undertake a major Canadian tour. Cappella Artemisia takes its name from the painter, Artemisia Gentileschi, a striking female figure in the 17th-century Italian art world whose accomplishments — like the convent inspired music

Fun games for a successful party

Old fashioned parlour games are suitable for all occasions and all age groups, but they are still big hits especially at Christmas.

Eggnog Fudge Makes 64 pieces • 3 cups (750 ml) granulated sugar • 1 cup (250 ml) eggnog • 1 tbsp (15 ml) corn syrup • 2 tbsp (25 ml) butter • 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla • 1/2 cup (125 ml) chopped walnuts Glaze • 1/4 cup (50 ml) semisweet chocolate chips • 1 tsp (5 ml) butter

PREPARATION: Grease sides of large heavy saucepan. Add sugar; stir in eggnog and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until boiling.

Is your annual Christmas party about as exciting as a funeral? Here are a few suggestions for games that are sure to put the fun back into the festive season. THE YES/NO GAME Preparation: give five clothes pins to each guest, which they will attach to their clothing. Goal: throughout the evening, avoid saying either “yes” or “no” in your conversations, at the risk of losing a peg to the person who tricked you into saying either one. Winner: the last per-

son to have one peg remaining. PASS THE PARCEL Preparation: wrap up a gift with several layers of paper. Goal: sitting in a circle, each participant has a turn rolling the die until someone gets a “6”. The lucky one must then quickly put on a pair of oven mitts (a hat and scarf are optional) and try to unwrap the gift until someone else rolls a “6” and so on. Winner: the one who succeeds in unwrapping the gift. Tip: when wrapping,

be sure to use lots of boxes and plastic bags and excessive amounts of tape! MYSTERY JAR Preparation: fill a glass jar (or any other transparent container) with candies. Goal: without them being able to touch it, ask guests to write down their guess at the number of candies in the jar. Winner: the one who guesses the closest number to the answer. This person also wins the great pleasure of sampling the goodies! Tip: choose candies

Sweet Facts C a n d y canes are very popular holiday treats and are often used to decorate Christmas trees. That h o o k e d shape certainly makes them whimsical and able to hang on tree boughs. But candy canes weren’t always the curved and colorful treats they are today. In the 1700s, candy canes were nothing more than straight white sticks of sugar candy used to decorate Christmas trees. A choirmaster at Cologne Cathedral decided that having the ends bent

that the candy cane is shaped like a shepherd’s crook to represent Jesus Christ, who tended to his flock of supporters. Others say that it’s a “J” for Jesus. Regardless of their shape, hundreds of thousands of candy canes are now manufactured and shipped for the holiday season each year.

to depict a shepherd’s crook and passing them out during church services would help keep children quiet. It was not until roughly the 20th century that candy canes acquired their red stripes. Some surmise

of varying sizes, shapes, and colours. Don’t forget to count them before closing the jar! Old favourites such as

charades are still suitable for all occasions and all age groups. And don’t forget another “new” classic: karaoke!

H LLOWEEN PARADE & PARTY

Cook, stirring only if necessary to prevent sticking, until candy thermometer reaches soft-ball stage of 238°F (115°C), and when 1/2 tsp (2ml) syrup dropped into very cold water forms soft ball that flattens on removal from water. Immediately remove from heat; let cool to lukewarm, 110°F (43°C), without stirring. Using wooden spoon, beat in butter and vanilla, beating until very thick and no longer shiny. Quickly stir in nuts. Spread in greased 8-inch (2 l) square cake pan. Tip: If fudge sets too quickly before spreading in pan, reheat gently over low heat just until soft enough to spread. Glaze: Melt together chocolate chips and butter. Drizzle over fudge. Score into 1-inch (2.5 cm) squares while warm; let cool completely and cut into squares. Fudge can be layered between waxed paper in airtight container and stored for up to two weeks. Recipe: The Canadian Living Christmas Book, Telemedia Publishing Inc./The Madison Press Limited.

Local flavour – and plenty of it – at Billy D’s Pub Renee Andor Record Staff If you’re looking for great food and a friendly, comfortable atmosphere, Billy D’s Pub & Bistro in downtown Courtenay is an excellent choice. With soft lighting, choices of cozy booth seats, bars stools or tables and friendly staff, the pub had a very welcoming and easy going feel to it as soon as I walked in the door. Owner Deana Simkin says that atmosphere is exactly what she’s trying to achieve. “It’s very friendly in here, everybody knows everybody. People come in and most of the staff, the servers, know everybody by name and I think it’s great,” says Simkin. “It’s like Cheers when everyone goes ‘Norm,’ you know, that’s what you want, you want it to be fun and neighbourhood-friendly.” The service was genuinely friendly — as well as prompt and attentive — throughout the entire meal. My sister — who was my dinner companion — and I chose a quiet booth and, after some trouble deciding which starter to order because plenty of options appealed to us, we chose the pork riblets tossed in house seasoning. We were both surprised by the size of each riblet; they were considerable pieces of meat. The house seasoning was the perfect flavour to complement the pork, which was absolutely succulent with a nice crispy texture on the outside. My sister chose the Thursday night dinner special of New York Steak, which is priced very well at $11, and came with potatoes and Caesar salad. She also added sautéed onions to top it off. Plenty of ‘Mmmm’ noises were coming from that side of the table, and she particularly liked the rosemary flavouring on the steak. I ordered the Slowbraised Lamb Shank off the Chef’s Fall Creations part of the menu, which was braised with red wine and blackberry jus. The flavour was as unique as it was delicious, and certainly made me think of fall. Potato gnocchi and

Tech career opportunities are booming in B.C. Group calls on government to build student skills in math and science programs “British Columbia has a ready source of great jobs and careers in technology. Our education programs need to keep up with that demand,” says John Leech, executive director of the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC. “Every system we rely on – water, roads and transportation, telecommunications and Internet, hydro and natural gas, environment, health, forestry, and many more – utilizes engineering and applied science technology professionals working in the background. B.C.’s telecom and IT, animation and many other sectors produce new careers every month.” ASTTBC has more than 10,000 members currently working in thousands of careers available to graduates of two-year diploma programs available at the

Happy’s Islanders jetting off to play in JetBlue Park Earle Couper Record Staff

Happy’s Islanders are off to Fort Myers, Florida for the 24th annual Roy Hobbs World Series. Local members of the team leave the Comox Valley on Thursday. Comprised of 10 players from the Komoux Masters Real Baseball League, six pick-ups from B.C., Ontario and Alberta (including Kelly McGiffin and brother Kirk, longtime teammate John Gowans, and three players from the Charlottetown national tournament in August), the team is playing in the Legends 55-plus division, which features 44 teams. Representing the KMRBL are Tim McDonald, Buck Briggs, Dave Odamura, Greg Grieve, Ray Vandermark, Tony Powell, Ron Carter, Scott Murray and Kevin Dobbelsteyn.

FIELD OF DREAMS will come true for many local Masters baseball players when they play in JetBlue Park next Tuesday in Fort Myers, Florida. After a practice on Saturday, the Islanders will commence play Sunday against Rhode Island Indians, Monday against Carolina Rockies, Tuesday against the DC Mets and Wednesday

against Nova Scotia Monarchs (an all-Canadian tilt). Playoffs begin Thursday, Nov. 8. “But the real excitement, before the playoffs, is the Tuesday afternoon match-

up with the DC Mets,” said Dobbelsteyn. The game will be played in JetBlue Park, a stadium within the Boston Red Sox spring training facility. Opened in February

2012, JetBlue has identical dimensions to Fenway Park, including a Green Monster. “Seating capacity is 11,000 and expected attendance on Tuesday is seven – all good seats!” Dobbelsteyn quipped. “For some of us, this may be a career highlight A brand new major league field – the grass will be perfect, the weather will be 28 degrees in bright sunlight, the Monster will be laughing at us. This writer would certainly suggest that Dobbelsteyn be penciled in to start this game on the mound!” Watch for updates from Fort Myers in the Record and follow the action at www.royhobbs.com.worldseries. The yearly amateur baseball tournament series runs through Nov. 17, with the Legends division in action from Nov. 3-17. Games will

be played on the stadium and practice fields at the Lee County Sports Complex, City of Palms Park, the Player Development Complex (the former Red Sox minor league spring training) and JetBlue Park. Named for the fictional lead character in the book and movie The Natural, Roy Hobbs Baseball is for players who are “of age,” but who do not want to settle for slo-pitch softball. Age-level competition is available in several divisions, including Open (25 and up), Veterans (38-plus), Masters (48-plus), Legends (55-plus), Classics (60plus), Vintage (65-plus) and Timeless (70-plus). There is also a Women’s Division. “It’s amateur baseball for adults on major leaguecalibre fields with high-end umpiring,” Roy Hobbs’ president Tom Giffen said. sports@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Kennelly feeling right (back) at home with Icemen Earle Couper Record Staff

Jack Kennelly came up aces for the Comox Valley Glacier Kings as they dealt the Campbell River Storm a 5-1 loss. Kennelly tallied four points to lead the Icemen to victory in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action Oct. 27 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre. In two games since rejoining the Yetis, Kennelly has collected five points. On Saturday, the Port Alice native (who played last season with the Jr. A Weyburn Red Wings of the SJHL) tallied two goals – including the game winner on the power play – to go along with two assists. He was an easy choice for game first star honours. Michael Scobie was the second star for his two-goal performance while Mitch Ball (one assist) was third star. Rylan Ball netted the other Yeti goal. The Glacier Kings outshot the Storm 30-19 with Josh Round picking up the win and Curtis Bagnall taking the loss. Comox Valley led 1-0 after one period and 3-1 after two. Rylan Ball’s seventh of the season from John Gosbee at 12:17 was the only goal of the first frame. Ken-

nelly from Garrett Halls and Mitch Ball at 12:54 on the power play made it 2-0. Brady Janzen netted Campbell River’s only goal at 16:22 on the power play, with Scobie re-establishing the two-goal lead at 19:50 from Kennelly and Rylan Ball. Kennelly’s third of the year from Sasha Hahn and Desmond Bast made it 4-1 just 1:38 into the third, and Scobie’s ninth of the season from Kennelly and Hahn wrapped things up at 10:12. With the win, the Glacier Kings solidified their hold on first place in the North Division. They are five points up with three games in hand on the Oceanside Generals. The Icemen return to action this weekend. They are in Campbell River to play the Storm on Friday then return home to host the Peninsula Panthers on Saturday, with game time 7:30 p.m. at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

Perseverance pays off at trail run Nearly 300 racers took part in the soldout Perseverance Trail Run on Oct. 28. The rain stopped just in time and the Cumberland trails held freshly filled puddles, making the perfect conditions for a fall trail race. The race was a huge success judged on the ear-to-ear grins and a sold-out event. The goal of the Perseverance Trail Run is to raise funds for the Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS). Last year $5,000 was raised for the CCFS and race organizers are looking forward to making another significant donation this year. The CCFS is a local society working toward purchasing and protecting additional forest lands in the Cumberland area for recreation now and into the future. The competition on the 10K course was fierce with nearly 190 racers and many competitive runners toeing the start line. Racers came from all over Vancouver Island for this year’s event and there were some great battles on the challenging mountain run. Top overall results in the 10K mountain run: Males - 51:12 Andrew Pape-Salmon, 51:25 Miguel Larouche, 52.18 Brad Crowe. Females 1:00:42 Cheryl Davies, 1:02:52 Shauna Connaughton, 1:03:33 Kathy Rung. Nearly 100 racers, young and old, tackled the 3K cross-country run through the Cumberland Community Forest trails. Top overall results for the 3K cross-country run were as follows: Males - 13:49 Nathan Erlandson, 15:39 Hugo Henchel, 16:02 Ben Prager. Females - 15:32 Alison Leroux, 15:34 Angelique Kennedy, 16:57 Eva Johnson. Lene Curts (Extreme Runners) and Sarah Seads (Equilibrium Lifestyle Management /ELM) co-organize this annual fundraising event along with massive support from Comox Valley volunteers and sponsors. They gave a huge thank you to nearly 50 enthusiastic volunteers who donated their time and energy before, during and after this year’s race. “A special thank you goes to the Comox Valley Search and Rescue and St. John Ambulance teams who spent

THERE WAS FUN and fundraising at the annual Perseverance Trail Run, held Oct. 28 in the Cumberland trails. the day watching over each and every racer on the course,” the organizers said. This year’s race, once again held on Halloween weekend, brought out great costumes and Cumberland Mayor Leslie Baird came out to judge the Costume Contest. Dozens of fantastic draw prizes were awarded including fresh doughnuts from the Cumberland Village Bakery for the best costumes. With close to 40 draw prizes donated from generous local businesses, many racers left with big smiles at the end of the day. A very big thank you to this year’s prize

HEATHER TROY OF the Thundercats challenges the rival Lightning Dogs to throw at her in an Intermediate Dodgeball League game earlier this season.

Cats and dogs dodgeball duel On opening night of the Fall Intermediate Dodgeball League season, two teams in particular went at it like cats and dogs. After a number of seasons near the top of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s dodgeball rankings, the Thundercats found a team announcing it was taking aim straight at them by rebranding themselves as the Lightning Dogs. The former Chuck ‘N Duckers team made the switch complete by reversing the Thundercats black and red team colours for their new jerseys and adopting a logo of a dog eating a Thundercat. It was a fun and friendly jab at their rivals, and one that ended short of its intended goal, with the Thundercats prevailing by a 10-7 count. But the Lightning Dogs (2-2) continue to show they mean business by keeping close enough in the standings to hope for a rematch in the playoffs with the undefeated Thundercats (2-2). A couple of other teams have shown they shouldn’t be overlooked in the playoff race either, with That Team sporting a perfect 4-0 record and the defending champion Grease Balls sitting at 2-1. The Ballistics (2-2) are the only other team to currently sit at a .500 record or better in the nine-team league. The CVSSC currently has six leagues

in five different sports running this fall, with the full standings and information on all of the co-ed leagues available at its website at w w w. c o m o x v a l l e y sports.ca. Registration opens on Nov. 15 for the winter leagues, which start up in January and include sports leagues in dodgeball, volleyball, indoor soccer and floor hockey. Visit the website or contact Scott at 250898-7286 or scott@ comoxvalleysports.ca for more information.

SUNNYDALE GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB

From Calcutta to the Comox Valley, John Renton’s life has been an amazing journey! John was born in India and emigrated to England as a teenager. His love of music flowered in England, where he was good friends with Jeff Beck and began playing in local bands. When he immigrated to Canada in 1963, he hitchhiked from Toronto to Vancouver and started a rock band called Raja. That band launched John on a successful career as a performer and songwriter. He recorded an album for Warner Bros., performed in opening acts for The Who and Eric Clapton, was a songwriter for Anne Murray, and along the way hung out in Los Angeles with Emily Lou Harris and Rodney Crowell. In the late 80s when he decided to give up the hectic life of a professional musician, John started a career in car sales in Toronto. After many happy years in Toronto, he spent time travelling in the U.S. and Central America to escape the cold, meeting his wife while in the States. When he decided he wanted to find an “idyllic” location to live, the Comox Valley was at the top of the list. Now John works in sales at Sunwest Auto Centre, where he is known as “JR”. At Sunwest he has found “great co-workers and great customers” and is “enjoying every minute.”

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Harold Thornton, who died at home the evening of October 24th with his family by his side. He was tired from his journey with cancer and wanted to go â&#x20AC;&#x153;Homeâ&#x20AC;?. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Betty; daughter Lisa (Keith) West and their children, Brandon, Amanda, and Tiana; daughter Lorna; and son Jim (Leanne) and their sons, Jacob and Luke. He is also survived by his brother Mervin (Jean); Aunt Thelma Kells, Aunt Jeannie Thornton; and by Bettyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s siblings, Mary (Dennis) Kirwan, Bill (Shirley) Logan, Kathleen Stata, Peg Frey, and Patty Sloan. He will also be missed by his 15 nieces and nephews, and by his many cousins and friends. Harold joined the RCAF at the age of 18, and served 20 years as an Aircraft Electrician before retiring. The family moved back to Courtenay, where he began a second career as a Parts Clerk at Seale and Thompson, which became Brian McLeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chev Olds. He retired at the age of 60, and then drove part time for Budget Car Rental. He volunteered as a Kiwanis member, as a driver of the Masonic Cancer Van, and as a longtime member of St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church. In his 50s, he took up wood turning and it became his passion. Many hours were spent in his shop creating works of art that he gave away to friends, family and charities. He will be remembered as a hardworking, courteous man, known for his quick wit and great sense of humour which he kept until the end. The family wishes to thank Dr. Tancon, Nurse Catherine, Dr. Tinmouth and the health-care workers and volunteers who gave such kind care to Thorny and made his journey with cancer less stressful. Please honour our wishes for no flowers and donations. Instead, in his memory, we encourage you to be kind to one another and to follow the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Golden Ruleâ&#x20AC;?. A Memorial and Celebration Service will be held on Friday, November 2nd at 2:30 at St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, with Rev. Peggy Jensen officiating.

Doris Ruby Muma (Ball) Ruby passed away October 21, 2012 surrounded by loved ones at St Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital. A long time resident of Comox Valley, Ruby is survived by her devoted husband of 59 years Doug, daughters Sharon (Mike) and Kathi, 6 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. She will be fondly remembered by her siblings Betty, Daryl (Shirley), Darnel (Ted), and many nieces and nephews. A very stylish woman, Ruby enjoyed travelling, time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, quiet moments with her husband, loved Coronation Street and was an avid reader. The family would like to thank Dr. G. Tancon, Dr. M. Robertson, staff of Valley Care and the third floor nursing staff of St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Ruby will truly be missed by her family and friends. A Celebration of Life Tea will be held at the Piercyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-Mt. Washington Funeral Home on November 2, 2-4pm.

ELSIE MARION DAWSON (nee Lapp) March 24th , 1926 ~ October 24th , 2012 It is with great sadness that the family of Elsie Dawson report her passing after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Elsie is pre-deceased by her loving husband, Clifford Dawson; her son John (Ricky) Downs; brothers John, Bob, Dick, Phil, Dave and Ernie Lapp; sisters Rose Wylie, Beverly Lanyon, Pearl Kennedy, and Elizabeth Shewfelt. She is also predeceased by her son-in-law, Chum McLellan. Elsie is survived by her sisters Muriel Nadeau, Doreen Filliponi and Ruth March; her brother Allan Lapp; her daughter Sandra Pinter (grandsons Trevor, Shaw and Curtis Hanes), step-daughter Pam McLellan (granddaughter Leanna MacKenzie, grandson Scott McLellan), step-son Larry Dawson (grandsons Danny Dawson, Tyler Dawson and granddaughter Jobyna) numerous nieces and nephews, granddaughter, Michelle Sjoholm, granddaughter Georgia Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien and grandson Jim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien; plus many other grand and great-grandchildren. Elsieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early life when she left Vancouver Island, after serving in the Second World War, was in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. She was trained initially as a Nurseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid and took additional training in that field. She finally realized her life-long dream of returning to the Comox Valley in 1965, where she worked at the Cumberland General Hospital. She attended UBC to take dental assistantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s course in 1972 and worked for Dr. Bullen for many years in Comox. When Dr. Bullen retired, she was employed by the Health Unit and was one of a few who travelled all around the schools in the Comox Valley and to all points north teaching children proper dental hygiene. Elsie also had a love of a travel, not only in Canada, but to Arizona, Texas, the Black Hills of North Dakota, plus Reno and Laughlin. She also made two trips to Seoul, S. Korea when her grandson, Trevor and his wife married and also when they had their son, Robert. Unfortunately, she was no longer able to withstand that long a trip when their daughter Mina was born. She will be remembered for her love of family, her ability to always tell a happy story and for being loyal and generous friend to all who had the good luck to meet her. The family wish to thank all of the staff on the first floor of St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital for their very kind and exceptional nursing while she was a patient there.

Cumberland business reflects on 10 years of construction Tucked away in Cumberland is a bustling team of Europeantrained tradesmen who have had a remarkable impact on some of the Comox Valley’s most attractive buildings. Island Timber Frame recently celebrated its 10th anniversary and is taking the opportunity to reflect on some of the projects it has completed in North America, Japan and Europe. Recent projects, such as the Simms and Waterfront parks Rotary pavilions, the Old House Village Hotel and Spa, the Best Western Westerly Hotel, the Holiday Inn, and the Kids Don’t Float billboard by the Comox Marina boat launch are some of the more visible projects in the Comox Valley — but drive through some of our more prominent neighbourhoods and you will see some spectacular custom homes hand-crafted by this innovative business. “My favourite project would have to be a corporate retreat we built for on a private island,” says Paul Schaffhauser, partner in the business. “The client selected the finest quality wood, and the design and joinery in the place is fantastic. We built a bridge from the main building to a smaller structure that spanned over 90

ISLAND TIMBER FRAME owners Paul Schaffhauser and Stefan Pletscher. feet. The entire bridge structure was built in our shop and barged to the site.” Stefan Pletscher, the other partner, fondly remembers a beachfront home they built about eight years ago in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver. “The client insisted on the best wood we could find — heavy, clear grade, kiln-dried Douglas Fir was used throughout the 4,000 square foot timber home. The design and joinery blended classic and contemporary styles, very tastefully combining wood, steel and concrete for a very impressive look.” The two partners

Entrepreneurs meet The Comox Valley Home-Based & Small Business Association invites entrepreneurs to its monthly meeting Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Best Western. There is no fee to attend. There will be spotlight presentations by Rina Knoesen and Kathy Seymour, and a presentation from the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce.

The association also hosts a Nov. 7 workshop featuring Beth Campbell Duke from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The 3 Simple Secrets of Smart Business Professionals will cover the what, the why and the how of the personal branding process. The association meets monthly September to June. Membership is $75 per year.

met just over 12 years ago at a 3D drafting seminar in Fernie B.C., where they became fast friends and realized their common goal of starting a timber framing business. Before he came to Canada from Switzerland, Paul achieved the highest level of schooling in timber framing and drafting/wood engineering to become a master in his trade. He worked at some of the more prominent timber frame companies in Canada before he decided to start his own business. Stefan was known locally for the Comox restaurant he ran in the ’80s at the bottom of Anderton Road called the Gaff Rig. The res-

taurant was one of the Comox Valley’s most popular establishments at the time. He then purchased property in the Discovery Islands, subdivided, then built and sold timber framed cabins. From this project, Stefan realized an opportunity. “It was obvious to me that there was a need for a good, organized, timber shop on Vancouver Island,” he said. “We had to source our own wood, ship the timbers to the property and cut and fit the beams on site. It was a difficult project without the right tools, labour and systems in place.” Paul, with his skill in building and design and Stefan, with his

business savvy and understanding of a target niche market, started their business from humble beginnings in a small rented shop on the Cumberland property that belonged to Victoria Truss at the time. “We started by calling custom home builders and designers to see if we could help on any projects. When we got a set of plans, we worked together in the office to produce shop drawings, then we went into the shop to cut and fit the timbers. It was a lot of hard work, but a very simple process with only two of us working” Paul recalls. Since then Island

Timber Frame purchased the entire twoacre property from Victoria Truss, added a timber frame addition onto an existing warehouse to include a showroom/office and a millwork shop, and grown to a staff exceeding 25. They have completed more than 300 projects with some of Canada’s top builders and architects. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Island Timber Frame has introduced a new logo and launched a new website at www. islandtimberframe. com. The showroom is at 3010 Royston Rd. in Cumberland.

Canadians as much as $1.5 billion a year. The most common forms are mortgage fraud — when a buyer provides fraudulent information to secure a mortgage; and title fraud — when a person fraudulently assumes the identity of a hom-

eowner and takes over title of the home, sells the property or arranges a new mortgage then takes the money and runs. Avoid fraud frights with these defensive measures: • Keep personal information private.

For example, your Social Insurance Number (SIN) is usually required only for tax purposes or banking. • PINs and passwords should never be shared with anyone. Don’t repeat them or other account numbers aloud where they can

be overheard. • Destroy all receipts and any forms containing personal info before putting these items in the garbage. • Carry in your wallet or purse only the identification and cards you absolutely See FOLLOW, 43

Follow these tips to avoid being fleeced

Keep others, such as your SIN card and birth certificate, in a secure place. • Keep your chequebook in hand and your cards in sight when making purchases and take your receipts with you. • Periodically review credit card and bank statements and credit reports and report any irregularities.

• Know billing cycles and follow up if your bills don’t arrive when they should. • Protect your outgoing mail – use only post office collection boxes or your local post office. And don’t leave incoming mail in your mailbox. • Delete spam, especially any e-mail asking for personal or financial info; legitimate businesses would never ask for per-

sonal information by e-mail or during an unsolicited phone call. • Be prepared should your credit or bank cards, driver’s license or SIN card be stolen or lost by keeping a list that includes expiration dates and account numbers in a safe place. • If you’re concerned, conduct a property search to be sure title to your home is in your name.

From the President & CEO Dianne Hawkins It has only been a few days since the Top 40 Under 40 Awards gala, where we had the pleasure of celebrating the achievements of a truly outstanding group of individuals. In addition to once again offering my congratulations to the award recipients, I want to express my most sincere thanks to the businesses and people of the Comox Valley who contributed to the success of our inaugural Top 40 Under 40 Awards program. Thank you to Andrew Gower, Wedler Engineering, who ¿rst came to us with the idea of starting a program to recognize the valuable contributions that young professionals are making to the future of the Comox Valley. With his encouragement, the staff took the concept and ran with it. The program would not have been possible without the amazing efforts of Terri Perrin, Laura Brown and Connie Calis, all of whom worked extremely hard to handle every aspect of the program, from administration to event planning and promotions. Then, of course, there were the people who took the time and made the effort to submit nominations. This, in itself, was no small task! We received almost 100 nominations and, after duplicates were grouped together, had a roster of 75 individual nominees. The task of narrowing the list down to the ‘Top 40’ was undertaken by Don Sharpe, Mount Washington; Naomi Carmichael, On Deck Systems; and Gen McNamee, Coastal Community Credit Union. The trio of volunteer judges each devoted an entire weekend to reviewing more than 800 pages of nomination forms and supporting documents, and later met to deliberate over the ¿nal selection. Needless to say, it was not an easy task! The Comox Valley Record and the Eagle Radio both came on board as Platinum level sponsors and were very generous in their support of ‘in kind’ donations in the form of advertising. MMP LLP, another Platinum sponsor, made a cash contribution that was directed toward securing our keynote speaker— Paralympic champion, Michelle Stilwell—and musical entertainment by the Paisley Bandits. Silver sponsors included North Island College, King¿sher Spa and Scotiabank. Bronze sponsors were Crown Isle Resort, First Insurance, Engrave it! and Ryan Williams RE/MAX. Unfortunately, space restrictions will not allow me to list all of the other businesses who contributed in various ways to the program, but I want to acknowledge that all contributions were sincerely appreciated. Again, thank you to everyone who supported to the Top 40 Under 40 Awards and congratulations to all of the nominees. Whether they were included in the ‘Top 40’ or not, they were all ‘winners’ to us.

What future do you want? The Northern Gateway pipeline? But that’s way up in Kitimat. True, the western terminus of the line is about 700 kilometres up the coast from the Warm Land. And the pipeline itself snakes more than 1,100 kilometres farther east into Alberta. But if you think that distance means the debate raging about this Enbridge project has little to no impact on us, you’re wrong. This debate is bigger than what’s going on at the tar sands, along the rugged north coast, or in the vast wilderness in between. Not only is it important to all British Columbians, it is important to all citizens of Planet Earth. This debate is about fossil fuel and its role in society. It’s about whether we should be trendsetters in closing the door on that chapter of human development, or squeeze whatever economic benefits that are available to us from oil while we still can. The pipeline’s economic benefits to our region are unclear. Certainly, we have our share of citizens who earn their livings in Fort McMurray. Certainly every dollar earned in British Columbia has a chance of being spent in British Columbia. And certainly there is money to be made. The environmental risks to our area are unclear. Certainly we would share a coastline with the tanker traffic exiting Kitimat. Certainly any spill up there will have at least an indirect effect down here. And certainly there is a risk of spills. That said, the direct risks and benefits in the Warm Land will be minimal at best. But it’s not about that. It’s about the benefits to B.C. and to the entire world. If you think your kids will be better off with the pipeline, speak up. If not, do the same. This is not really about a pipeline, it’s about a future. What future do you want for your kids? — Cowichan News Leader Pictorial

Record Question of the Week This week: Fifty-five per cent of respondents so far say they are concerned that poor weather will disrupt flights into and out of the Comox Valley Airport. We’re into the foggy season now. Visit www.comoxvalleyrecord.com and vote in the Poll on the mainpage. Rec Recent rainfall has erased drought conditions and restored waterways in the area to more normal levels, which is good for fish and people who fish.

A shooting, rare in our area, shakes our sense that the Comox Valley is immune from the violent crime that is all too common in bigger communities.

Reconsider hospital’s location Dear editor, Now is the time for the Vancouver Island Health Authority to review its decision to site the new Comox Hospital on the North Island College Campus in Courtenay. If the two existing hospitals are to be upgraded this should not be a consideration in the siting of the new regional hospital. What is needed is a vision of the Central and North Island health needs over the next hundred years and such a vision cannot be accommodated by compressing the new Comox Hospital onto eight and a half acres on the college campus in Courtenay. A synergism would result from having the improved specialist services, medical imaging, laboratory services and dialysis etc. under one roof to the benefit of patients’ medical outcomes.

Of immediate concern is the approaching rezoning application of the NIC site to accommodate a hospital. This application should not be considered before the mayors of Courtenay and Comox make public the traffic engineers’ report on the traffic turmoil that exists at the Lerwick-Ryan intersection. This turmoil will be considerably exacerbated by the traffic that a hospital would generate. This plus the intrusion of ambulance and police sirens and helicopter landings on college classes and the neighbouring school, would further negatively impact the area. VIHA should surely be considering a site of a minimum of 10 hectares (22 acres) to allow for the future expansion of the region’s population, a need that

should not be at the expense of the future expansion needs of the college. One more constraint to consider when viewing the proposed NIC site is the bottleneck presented by the two bridges which in case of a large scale emergency; (major earthquake, forest fire) would constitute a true access hazard in obtaining hospital services. To conclude, note that my observations do not include where the new institution should be established but rather I wish to draw attention to the present proposal of two sites instead of one and what appears to be a lack of logic if considering the hundred year scenario of selecting a modest acreage at North Island College. John Tayless, Comox

Courtenay sprawling into country Dear editor, The City of Courtenay has been advertising to annex several areas on our borders. This appears to me to be counter to the Regional Growth Strategy, which has suggested we focus on densifying our existing area instead of continuing the sprawl that we have experienced. The future of our downtown would improve with more residents within walking distance. The costs of water, sewer, transit and street maintenance all increase with sprawl and decrease with density. We don’t need to look like downtown Vancouver, but there is a lot we can do to build humanscale multi-storey buildings and complete the development of areas within our existing borders. The Regional Growth Strategy identified ‘Settlement Expansion Areas’ that were very controversial at the time. The implication was that these would be left for the future when we had built

well on the existing foot print of the city. We certainly haven’t begun to tighten our sprawl and I suggest we reject the proposals. This can be done by filing an Elector Response Form with John Ward at City Hall. The areas are Lannan Lands, Beaver Meadow Farm and South Courtenay. The proper forms can be

downloaded at www.courtenay. ca/media/184688/erp_lannan.pdf, www.courtenay.ca/media/184692/ erp_beavermeadows.pdf and www.courtenay.ca/media/184695/ erp_south_courtenay.pdf. Print the forms, invite your friends to sign and deliver them to John Ward before Nov. 23 at 4:30 p.m. Don Munroe, Courtenay

No P3 hospital for her Dear editor, I don’t want a P-3 hospital in the Comox Valley. When my mother had her first four children, she could not afford to go to the local hospital. Then hospitalization came and she proudly entered the hospital doors to have her last two children. My mother and father worked hard all their lives and contributed to this hospital.

Will my Canadian grandson’s wife be able to go to the hospital to have her baby? Not if we start down the private road. My son and his wife in Indiana have to decide if they can afford it before they take my American grandson to their hospital. Do you want Canadians to have to start making those kinds of decisions now? I don’t. Sue Magnusson, Comox


OPINION

www.comoxvalleyrecord.com

Bill would cut red tape Dear editor, Did you know that it is possible to save hundreds of thousands of lives in Africa at absolutely no cost to the Canadian government or taxpayers? I would like to urge readers to support Bill C-398, which will come up for discussion in the House of Commons on Nov. 21. This bill would cut through the governmental red tape that is obstructing the export of inexpensive generic drugs for HIV/ AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis to developing countries. This is an urgent humanitarian and non-partisan issue. In developing countries, only 40 per cent of persons needing HIV/AIDS drugs are receiving them. Half of children infected with AIDS die before their second birthday. Unfortunately, the current system which promised to allow the export of life-saving drugs, called Canada’s Access to Medicines Regime or CAMR, is deeply flawed. In eight years, it has only been used once to export one shipment of drugs to Rwanda. A bill to reform CAMR, similar to Bill C-398, was introduced last year by Paul Dewar. It passed in the House of Commons with

support from members of every party, but was stalled in the Senate until the election was called, at which point it died on the table — a great disappointment to its supporters! Now, we have a new bill, introduced by Helene Laverdiere of the NDP. Ms. Laverdiere promises to work hard to get agreement from all parties for this bill. But we need to make our opinion heard. Here are three ways to do that: 1. Come to the Our Hilltop to Parliament Hill event at the corner of Fifth Street and Duncan (by the Zen Zero parking lot) this Thursday at 1 p.m. 2. Support Bill C-398 by going online to www.medicinesforall.ca and send a message to members of the House of Commons. Your message will reach representatives of every party. 3. Write a letter to Prime Minister Harper and our MP, John Duncan, and let them know that it is high time to get behind Canadians in this effort. Barbara Baird, Hornby Island Editor’s note: Barbara Baird is a member of GRAN (Grandmothers Advocacy Network).

What’s up with deal for railway? Dear editor, I have just read the letter from Graham Bruce and must ask, whatever happened to the provisions of the E&N railway grant that gave such a whopping big chunk of Vancouver Island to the owners of the grant in exchange for an agreement to operate the rail line in perpetuity for said grant? They still own the grant goodies (mineral rights among others). Why do we all of a sudden get the shaft (costs of the rail line) while they get the benefits, the mineral rights etc.? Has our provincial legislature passed some motion to do this or was it done under the table? Just asking. A.R. Wainwright, Happy Valley

Stand up to our premier Dear editor, As a constituent of MLA Don McRae and former Psych 11 student of his, I am utterly confounded as to his silence and lack of response on a non-partisan and urgent matter. I urge him to please use his position as MLA for our area to oppose the Canada-China FIPPA treaty — do whatever he needs to do — let Christy Clark know he won’t stand for her standing by when any of the provinces’ premiers could interfere and stop this deal. It is binding internationally for up to 31 years even though unconstitutional and therefore illegal in Canada, and which affects federal, provincial and municipal governments’ ability to make sovereign decisions and could cost taxpayers

billions of dollars in secret extrajudicial lawsuits. If she doesn’t want to hear it, cross the floor! Step down! Why do Canadian politicians these days seem to be so utterly hypnotized into the herd mentality? I think it’s time for mass defections from the federal Conservatives and their ideological sister party, the BC Liberals. Any politician who fails to make a last stand for Canadian sovereignty in the coming week will likely be sunk in upcoming elections, robocalls and illegal election spending notwithstanding. I apologize for my tone but I have strange feeling that there is no one listening on the other end anyhow, so what the heck! Claire Gilmore, Cumberland

COMOX VALLEY RECORD • Wednesday, October 31, 2012 MANY SENIORS WHO live in this area can no longer afford a car. They enjoy walking through Harmston Park on their way to downtown. We were thrilled when the City planted trees and built a good gravel path through the park. I live in Kiwanis Village and a steady stream of walkers pass my home daily, cross the track to Seventh Street and the park. Many live in the Tenth Street Apartments. This past summer, it was usual to see families having picnics under those big plane trees. In the past, St. George’s Church has held functions there. Other groups as well. I have seen many folks out with their Frisbees. It is not a big park but it is all we have in this area of lowcost housing. Surely Bill Moore Park is big enough to allow a section to be set aside for a dog run. Actually I thought that big dogs would prefer the beach area. GIANT THANK YOU to Jim Revenburg from Comox Valley Nissan and his wonderful staff, salesman Brandon Longson and finance manager Nathan McCarty, for their excellent customer service and treating us like family.

hour before closing to test drive a few SUVs and I ended up driving home in a brand new Murano. They stayed late for us, tied up all loose ends first thing in the morning, and had everything ready for us the next day. Because I drove it home that night it hadn’t been fully detailed, they picked it up from our house and brought it to the dealership to detail it inside and out, made sure everything was running smooth, ensured all fluids were topped up, and that the undercoat was done then returned it to us looking more brand new then it already was. We highly recommend Comox Valley Nissan to anyone looking for a new vehicle. The family-friendly atmosphere will make you feel right at home, making the decision an easy one to purchase through them. We have never had such great service when purchasing a new vehicle! Thank you guys for all your help.

The Auto Spa at Chuck’s Trucks detailed every nook and cranny of my car interior, which now looks like new and smells great. There’s not a speck of dust anywhere! Even though I purchased a gift certificate at a silent auction, Derek and his meticulous team went the extra mile as true professionals who take pride in their work. I WOULD LIKE to send out a BIG THANK YOU to all the businesses that let me place the petition for Chum and Champ in their stores and business. I would also like to send out a huge thank you to everyone that signed the petition and supported us with this, every singlel signature meant a lot to us (supporters of Chum and Champ) and the owners of these two dogs, and another big thank you to the Comox Valley Record for posting more stories to bring out the story of Chum and Champ and to let everyone know more about them.

Little new in BC Liberal renewal WHISTLER — B.C. Liberal delegates gathered for their convention on the weekend at the Chateau Whistler, the same luxury hotel where Gordon Campbell fired up the troops in 2008. Back then the advertising slogan was “Keep BC Strong.” Unveiled at Premier Christy Clark’s pre-election pep rally: “Together. Building BC.” This slight change hints at the big difference. Campbell led a front-running party to a third straight majority, while Clark is a struggling underdog pleading for unity to turn back an NDP tsunami. Hence “Free Enterprise Friday,” a discussion open to nonparty members. Clark began with an upbeat speech urging party members to “reach out our arms, open the tent and be as big as we can possibly be.” So did they? Dashing between three concurrent sessions, I missed a fair amount of it, but there were some provocative suggestions to appeal to those inclined to support the resurgent B.C. Conservatives. An accountant spoke to a packed room about the growing unfunded liability of public sector pensions, most of which are still of the “defined benefit” variety. Based on bond interest rates that have since sunk to all-time lows, these government-guaranteed pensions are now a free ride for those lucky enough to have

Minister Don McRae embark on a long-shot bid to end the decades of confrontation that have defined that relationship since teachers were relegated to the industrial union model of labour relations. There was a brief debate on a motion to scrap the carbon tax, sponsored by northern members who see it as unfairly punitive on those who endure cold weather and long highway drives for themselves and the goods they need to have trucked in. This was rejected

POLITICS

TOM

FLETCHER them, funded by the taxes of private sector workers who in many cases have no pension plan at all. There was talk of passing a law that all new public sector hires be restricted to a “defined contribution” plan where the employee and employer contribute equally and the pension is based on what those contributions yield. This would provoke the mother of all confrontations with the B.C. Federation of Labour, but there was no evidence yet that this is going beyond the talking stage. The resolutions continued the theme of confronting the labour movement, ritual combat that seems to be an inescapable part of B.C. elections. Delegates passed two motions, one calling for public sector unions to disclose what they spend on salaries, political activities and lobbying, and another advocating a ban on unions spending compulsory dues on political campaigns. Delegates rejected another motion that would have made membership in the B.C. Teachers’ Federation optional. This would have been a declaration of war on B.C.’s most militant union, just as Clark and Education

too, after delegates were reminded that the tax now takes in more than $1 billion annually that is used to reduce business and personal income taxes. The good news for Clark is that the 2012 convention was a highenergy, well-attended event that contradicts the notion of a party in disarray. The bad news is, nothing has really changed.
