Pistol-waver threatens woman in her yard Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial


male who pointed a pistol at a female, working in a yard off Stamps Road Friday, is wanted by police. North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP received a call from the resident who said a male, unknown to her, parked nearby and approached her at around 8:09 p.m. while she was working on her property, Cpl. Jon Stuart says in a release. “He produced a handgun, which he pointed at her, and told her to get on the ground. “When she refused, he grabbed her shoulder in an attempt to force her down. The female resisted him and, after a dog on the property barked and growled at him, the male Ă€ed the area in a vehicle.â€? The male is described as a stocky Caucasian, approximately Âżve-feet 10 inches, who was clean shaven. He was wearing a black, curly wig, a green truckerstyle cap, a black hoodie, and a dark shirt and jeans. The suspect’s vehicle is described as a silver/ beige, late 1980’s Honda Accord-style car with popup headlights and a loud mufĂ€er, Stuart says. Witnesses or folks with information regarding the suspect or vehicle, should call the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at (250)748-5522, or call Crimestoppers at 1-800222-TIPS (8477).

A black bear spent a good portion of Sunday staring down at passersby from a tree near Berkey’s Corner. Conservation ofÄcers were called to a home on Marsh Road after the bear wandered onto the property, then settled into its perch on a branch.

ome Cowichan residents are wondering why conservation ofÂżcers were so slow in responding to Sunday morning’s call about a bear in a tree off Lake Cowichan Road. The placid animal turned into a bit of a neighbourhood spectacle as passersby paused to gawk and take photos during a space of about seven hours before the COs arrived to take it away. “I just wonder why it took so longâ€? said area resident Cathy Head. She and other locals visited a Marsh Road home where the shy black bear likely followed a trail of food before being spooked by dogs, then climbing a big Âżr tree in


John Harry’s yard. He said a neighbour called conservation services Âżrst, then Harry’s wife called again at around 6 a.m. “When I called (dispatch) said they’d pass the message along. I thought it should be handled quickly because there’s lots of homes around.â€? He and his family waited for the ofÂżcers as area residents came to see the panting bruin. “It wasn’t aggressive. I didn’t feel threatened in any way,â€? Head said, guessing the bear was snifÂżng for berries and apples along the Trans-Canada Trail before wandering into the Marsh Road neighbourhood. “The guy who lived there was just sitting in a deck chair and looking at it,â€? Head said of Harry. “That was good, in case the bear came down and headed to the park,â€? she said of a small park off Marsh,

used by local kids. In a CHEK-TV News story, Harry’s neighbour Dal Sidhu calls conservation’s response time “ridiculous.â€? The delay may rest with conservation’s call centre. OfÂżcer Mark Kissinger says in an email to the News Leader Pictorial that he received the call centre report at 12:35 p.m. He called the Harry home Âżve minutes later to see if the bear was still there, then visited the site at 1 p.m. It took ofÂżcers four riĂ€e darts to tranquilize the healthy 430-pound bruin, then load the 10-year-old male into a bear-trap trailer for transport to a bush area. Bears sometimes visit the Marsh Road area, explains Kissinger, but Sunday was the Âżrst report he’d had about this bear. more on page 8

Guess who’s coming to make and serve dinner for the KidSport cause? KidSport Cowichan Chairperson Deb Savory Wright and other members of the organization appeared at the Sports Wall of Fame ceremony to conduct its silent auction fundraiser. The auction brought in more than $4,300. Proceeds go to help kids overcome financial barriers to participate

in sports. The campaign received a boost from North Cowichan Deputy Mayor Ruth Hartmann and Mayor Jon Lefebure. The services of both — Hartmann to cook a six-course meal and Lefebure to clean up at a dinner party — brought $625 at auction. Glen Harper paid

another $625 for dinner at Lefebure’s. “I really am grateful to the Sports Wall of Fame committee for including KidSport in this event,’’ noted Wright. KidSport Cowichan has provided more than $38,000 to assist 250 children since its inception.

he North Cowichan-Duncan Sports Wall of Fame ceremony is always inspirational and usually emotional. Cheers and tears greeted the newest ¿ve Wall inductees during a ceremony Saturday night at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club. Joining the previous 25 inductees and bringing the total number to 30 are: precision/synchro skating coach Penny Baker, hockey player Robin Bawa, swimmer Eulah Varty, the Willis bowling family and national women’s soccer team member Emily Zurrer.

Penny Baker

Baker put precision skating on the map in the Cowichan Valley by guiding a succession of recreational and competitive teams. “When I started teaching in the ‘70s, precision skating — they called it that — was never even formed yet,’’ she said. One year, the Canadian championships were held in Vancouver so Baker said she thought ‘‘‘I’m going to go over and just check out what they’re doing.’ “I went there and I realized that this was awesome. I was just blown away and I thought ‘I can do this.’’’ Baker started arranging ice, recruiting skaters ages 14 to 21 and away she went. The ¿rst junior precision team, the Golden Girls, started in 1983 and quali¿ed for the Canadian championships in Laval, Quebec the ¿rst year. The only trouble is the team had to raise $20,000 in short order to get to the nationals, but pulled it off. Baker continued to coach teams at provincials and nationals for many years, including ¿ve at one time. The bond between Baker and her skaters was unsurpassed and friendships continue to this day. “I talk to the girls and they say they miss the skating and the camaraderie,’’ Baker said.

Centennial totem drinking fountain now on stream Quench: unveiled in Duncan city square Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial


en Slade was Âżrst. Then Tony the police dog. You could be next to drink from the world’s Âżrst totem-pole fountain, unwrapped as a city centennial gift Friday in city square. “I like it,â€? said Jasmine Hamil, 8. “I like the shape and colour — and the doggie bowl.â€? That self-cleaning canine bowl was actually the catalyst in Cowichan water wizard Peter Lewis’ fertile mind toward making Quench a reality, after seeing a dog dish in use downtown one day. But project-leader Lewis graciously compared himself to the quarterback of a team of artists, Natives, politicians and business folks that huddled for months to create the totem toasting Duncan’s water that’s among the world’s best. That’s why it was appropriate for Slade, founder of Cowichan’s Drillwell Enterprises, to take the Âżrst sip from water streaming from an eagle’s beak. Water lapped by Tony, at the command of RCMP dog-master Const. GarÂżeld Henderson, came courtesy of a ground-level frog’s mouth. “I’m humbled they asked Tony to come down and be part of this,â€?

Lewis’ son Thor, who works for Google. Quench’s unveiling was witnessed by 100 or so folks after a brief introduction by Town Crier Ben Buss. “No one can live without water,� he cried about the moist masterpiece whetted by money from the province, Melba Schappert’s bequest, plus a pitcher of donors. Artist and Ma’amtagila Chief Rande Cook, caster and molder Richard Gibson, and plumber Lauren Holman of Holman Plumbing, were also cheered by Lewis. But it was the solemn prayers of Dzawada’enuxw Chief Frank Nelson, then an a cappella song by Cowichan elder Ray Peter, that gave life to Quench’s mythical characters. “We’re all connected through water,� Chief Nelson said. It’s hoped coastal Aboriginal symbolism — and word of Duncan’s pure water — spreads globally through 25 replica fountains available for sale. “There’s interest from four organizations at this point,� city Councillor Sharon Jackson said of replicas fetching about $50,000 each. Coast Salish carver Luke Martson called Quench “revolutionary�; Cathy Altice called it a beautiful addition to attract folks downtown. Chief Nelson simply saw the fountain of healing water as a way to “meld Native and non-Native cultures. “It’s a great day to be full of laughter,� he said, saluting Cowichan’s honouring of water. “Without water, we have no life.�

Mediator asked to step in to help resolve ongoing CUPE/ VIU dispute


IU brass and its union agents for support staff started mediated contract talks this week to sidestep strike action that could close the Cowichan campus and VIU’s other island facilities. Vancouver Island University and the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 1838 have

CUPE Local 1838 represents nearly 30 Cowichan campus

workers among 300 island employees, including food services workers, clerical staff, facilities workers and library staff at VIU’s Âżve campuses.

Crash at Frayne and TCH Two drivers suffered minor injuries during Saturday’s crash at the Frayne Road-TCH intersection, police say. The two-vehicle wreck occurred at about 3 p.m. when a 2004 Nissan car, northbound on the TCH, hydroplaned as the driver lost control. The car crashed into a 2004 GMC SUV

stopped at a red light in the westbound lane of Frayne Road, RCMP say. Both vehicles were occupied only by the drivers. They were transported by ambulance to Cowichan District Hospital. It was not believed the 44-year-old male driver of the car, nor the 43-year-old female driver of the SUV, suffered serious injuries, police said Sunday.

Judge Josiah Wood will hear from both Hira and Crown prosecutor Todd Patola during the day about the arguments for and against expert testimony on both sides as it pertains to the circumstances of the case.

“The judge will probably reserve and then we come back Nov. 23 to argue the case,’’ said Hira. Pompeo is charged in the Sept. 18, 2009 shooting of Bill Gillespie at a residence near Chemainus at Henry Road and Juniper Road. Gillespie, who was in a car with friend Dale Brewer at the time, previously testiďŹ ed they complied with all orders from Pompeo and partner Const. David Birchett on a trafďŹ c stop. Pompeo countered there were threat cues by Gillespie that prompted him to discharge his ďŹ rearm.

Story by: Jessica Ruggles ur daughter, Leila Elizabeth, came into the world with a rough start. My pregnancy was by the books and our baby was strong and healthy as I left the doctors office just days before her arrival. However, when she seemed to stop moving in utero, we made our way to the hospital for a non stress test to see if she was okay. Within minutes of being hooked up to the monitoring system, the room filled with hospital staff and my bed was pushed in the direction of the operating room. I would later learn that Leila’s heart rate was very low as a blood clot in her umbilical cord was cutting off oxygen. I was put to sleep and an emergency Caesarean was performed. Leila was deemed a miracle as she was resuscitated after 30 minutes! My family and I were told, that if she lived, she would be very delayed. We were all devastated. After a helicopter ride from Cowichan District Hospital to Victoria General and 18 long days of

recovery, Leila finally came home. It wasn’t long before the phone rang and it was the Clements Centre wanting to set up my first appointment with our IDP. Little did I know then, that 4 of the amazing Clements staff would become involved in the care for Leila. When they come to my house, its like visiting with a good friend. One who understands the challenges my daughter faces, supports me on my down days when I need to have a good cry, and are very knowledgeable in their fields. They support our family and take general interest in our well being. As months turned into a year, and Leila’s development didn’t match the other babies in our life, I needed extra encouragement and goals to help Leila achieve at her best. From feeding struggles, seating systems, range of motion exercises and sleeping tips, the staff at Clements seem to know it all! And if they don’t know the answer, they’ll find it. We are so thankful to have them in our lives. We know with their help, Leila’s life with cerebral palsy will be given the best early intervention possible. We will never be alone in this battle.

wreck resulted in no charges against the Duncan driver, North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP said Friday. Cowichan Towing staff said the Subaru, with a squashed roof, was eventually pulled from the treed site. Tow-truck driver Ben Hinton scratched his head on scene trying to ¿gure out how to yard the car out, after it narrowly missed trees and a power pole. He and a Mountie on scene were amazed how an uninjured Hunter managed to wiggle out of the wreck that ¿re¿ghters and cops couldn’t initially ¿nd as it was out of sight from the road.


Your Will establishes who will receive your bequests after you die. It also includes the name of the person you have selected to be your executor (or personal representative) the person who will be legally responsible for carrying out your wishes as set out in your Will. But what happens if you become incapacitated prior to your death? Your Will has no effect in that case - so you need another form of protection and direction - and that’s what a power of attorney for property does. You select your attorney for property (it can be the person you named as executor or someone else) who will act on your behalf in respect of your finances. The powers granted to an attorney for property vary according to your province/territory and the terms of the document. They generally include paying your bills, managing your real estate and other investments, filing your tax returns and paying your taxes, signing documents on your behalf, mortgaging or selling your home, and managing your accounts, safety deposit boxes and other banking needs. Power of attorney for personal care Sometimes called a health care proxy, a health care directive, or living Will, your power of attorney for personal care is your substitute decision-maker for your wished regarding your future health or medical care including giving or refusing consent to specified kinds of treatment such as saying yes or no to life support treatment that would artificially sustain or prolong life.

Age should be no barrier for Wall inclusion Sports honour: Retirement no prerequisite


he North Cowichan-Duncan Sports Wall of Fame has an open-door policy for all ages. And that’s the way it should be. In professional sports, it’s obviously quite different because players, coaches, of¿cials, administrators or builders must be retired for a certain period before receiving consideration. While there are some former professionals already included on the North Cowichan-Duncan Sports Wall, most are amateurs and it would be ridiculous to subscribe to the same rules. Our community has a unique blend of athletes from many different sports and backgrounds. It’s great athIn just its ¿fth year of existence, the letes can be Wall provides a mix of inductees that paints a true picture of the valley’s sports recognized in fabric, both past and present. their prime To exclude anyone because they’re too young and haven’t yet reached their peak would not meet the objectives intended for the project when ¿rst devised by Ernie Mansueti. There is a movement afoot to turn the Wall more into a Hall in the future where memorabilia, newspaper clippings and photos of the inductees could be displayed. That would be an opportunity to change the displays as athletes continue in their careers and make it more like a museum exhibit where something different could be seen every so often. But the Wall in the Cowichan Aquatic Centre has been a great starting point. It is seen my many people every day and the concept is still catching on in the community about the Wall’s existence and purpose. And how great it was to have 25-year-old Emily Zurrer and Eulah Varty, who’s 78, inducted on the same evening. Neither has any intention of retiring from sport anytime soon and there is no question each belong. Playing the waiting game before honouring them didn’t make sense.

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like As has been the case most recent years, police reported a quiet Halloween. A few of us remember a time in Cowichan when that was not the case, a time when mobs of young people gathered in the local streets for mischief, mayhem and all sorts of ne’er-do-well activities. The fact shopkeepers no longer have to bolt the doors and little ones can wander in peace is wonderful.

Halloweeners were well-behaved in Cowichan.

Don’t let your kids be bystanders to your mistakes Maeve Maguire

efore Burnaby teenager Amanda Todd took her life she posted a YouTube video that has had as many hits as there are Canadians. Why are so many people attracted to the Amanda Todd story? Because we can relate. In her video, we see Todd’s hands peel away, one by one, a stack of Àash cards with phrases on them that strung together unveil a tragic story of unrelenting abuse from a cyber stalker and her schoolmates. The effect is dramatic and heartbreaking, and stirs emotions many of us felt in our own teen years. Most of us played a role in bullying; some were bullies, some were bullied, and the rest of us witnessed it and did nothing. We did nothing out of fear for our own survival; the wrath brought down on a bullied peer wasn’t something we wanted to experi-

ence ourselves. But as bystanders, not only were we condoning that single incident, but we were doing nothing to stop it from happening again, to someone else. It’s not often I see bullying anymore, but there is something I can do to help my children navigate these debilitating confrontations. I can share a story about when I was in school, when I was a bystander who did nothing to defend my friend, and how now, as an adult, I feel complicit in that friend’s suicide. In Grade 1 there was a girl in my class who had gorgeous green eyes and thick brown hair and she was the heaviest kid among us. She and I were friends, no more or less than the other girls in my class, but friends nonetheless. One day after school, when we were waiting for our parents to pick us up, someone made a joke about this little ¿ve-year-old’s body shape, in front of her, and everyone laughed. I laughed too, though I remember not knowing why — until then I hadn’t noticed her

Every year, the Cowichan Sportsplex comes, cap in hand to the CVRD board table, begging for money. And every year, they get some. Instead of giving this non-profit group the certainty it needs by providing a dedicated source of annual funding, the CVRD chooses to use it as a pawn in its endless debate about recreation funding. Enough already.


weight. It felt wrong to laugh along with the troublemakers, but I did. I also remember the look on her face. She looked at me confused and defeated—she probably hadn’t noticed her weight until then either. That wasn’t the last time she was picked on. I no longer remember the details but I know I didn’t do enough to speak up for her. She tried to take her life more than once before she was successful that ¿nal time, as an adult and mother, leaving behind her four children. I can’t help but feel I was — we all were — responsible in part for her death. As quiet witnesses, we left her with the impression we agreed what was being said. Our actions may not have been what pulled the trigger, but we helped load the gun. As bystanders, we are as much to blame as the bully. Each year on Remembrance Day we hear

heartbreaking stories from veterans to make sure the same horrendous acts don’t happen again. As Massey lecturer Ronald Wright recently said: “Every time history repeats itself, the price goes up.” Case in point: cyber-bullying, which takes the threat to another, scarier, level. Tell your personal stories of bullying to the children in your life and let them see how it affects you. It may change the course of history. Yesterday would have been my friend’s 38th birthday. May she rest in peace.

E&N and other rail needs to be made a top federal priority

Some water license facts you should chew on

Dear editor I enjoy a turkey-and-havarti panini as much as anyone, but in applying the metaphor to Cowichan Lake water levels, your editorial misses the mark. The truth is, a sandwich is a lot more than meat and cheese, and just like the facts on water management, leaving things out puts a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. The water releases that took place on the Cowichan earlier in the year were conducted in full compliance with the existing water licence held by the owners of the Crofton Mill for more than 40 years. Because the province adjudicates applications under the Water Act, and resolves differences between licensees and other stakeholders, we do not typically hold large-scale water storage licences ourselves. A few conservation-based water licences are held by the province related to trout and steelhead management, small hatchery operations or waterfowl management. However, in the case of the Cowichan watershed we are dealing with a federally managed salmon ¿shery, municipally managed sewage treatment, use by industry and other broader community issues. For well over 30 years the province has provided guidance and support on the process to acquire a water licence to address these issues, including since 2007, when a decision was made by your local government to reject the Cowichan Basin Water Management Plan recommendation to increase the water level. Most recently, recognizing the importance of the Cowichan River to the community I have asked staff to prioritize the adjudication of any application that might be received. We will work with all concerned to ¿nd interim and longer-term solutions. Steve Thomson, provincial minister, Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations

Reporters should leave issues to adults, farmers should pay own way Dear editor I am writing to voice my displeasure at the question of the week in your Oct. 19 edition.

A spectator enjoys photos of William Chalmers Duncan (left) and Sir John A. Macdonald in the exhibit Duncan’s V.I., in the alley behind downtown’s Bank of Montreal. The exhibit toasts the city’s centennial. The outdoor archival display of early Duncan was commissioned from the Cowichan Valley Museum by the Duncan Business Improvement Area Society. building a high enough fence to deter these animals. It is not my responsibility, nor anyone else’s to bail this person out when the inevitable happens. But what I found even more offensive and downright insulting was the two people pictured in the paper, whose opinions were printed, both appeared to be teenagers. I highly doubt either of these children pay taxes in the community or have a complete grasp of the issues that face taxpayers. I would suggest that in the future if you want your newspaper to be taken seriously and not immediately relegated to the recycling bin, you will take it seriously yourselves. Brent Ferber Duncan

Surely there must be a better way to deal with these gentle animals?

Dear editor At 3 a.m I’m jarred awake by a loud noise. All the imaginables enter my mind from natural disaster to murderous intent. I hear painful squeals — an animal in distress, a rabbit caught by sharp claws, a bloodied neck? Tall aand stately, like a statue immobile, a giant elk w watches over her playful youngsters 100 feet bbeyond my bedroom window. It stands on a m mound over the septic tank. For such large aanimals their squeals are thin. For 12 years tthey return, down the heights to the farmer’s Àats. They rub fences with thick hides, leave uungulate prints inches deep in moist soils and rrun the running creek playing catch me if yyou can. Once, with his barrel-chested dog, I ssaw the farmer face them down. He walked sstraight toward them alone till they turned and

ran, four great bulls, then the cows, afraid of one man. They leapt the fences like gazelles a distant veldt. That an animal so large could leap so gracefully surprised me! Two remained behind, the very young, while the herd watched from distance. They tried and tried and tried again to leap the fence. Sought lower parts until they did. Then the herd disappeared as if a fog had descended and they walked into it. A day or two later the farmer’s dairy cows went into the ¿elds. Dipped their heavy necks and like the elk foraged the grass below, sunk their ungulate feet inches deep into the moist soil and rubbed coarse hides against the fence. They returned, hours later to the barn as elk moved on, Àeeing other farmers who faced them down. During the 12 years I have watched them I never saw aggressive behaviour toward a human or another animal. What struck me in their behaviour was their timidity. So I wonder about the recent articles. I appreciate the concern of the farmer for his property, the time and investment he puts into it, worries about disease. We need farmers. However some of the details expressed in the articles previously mentioned do not seem remotely close to my experience. Surely there is another alternative other than to shoot them?

n every community along the Vancouver Island Corridor, I get stopped repeatedly by constituents who want to talk to me about the need for a revitalized rail line. I agree with them. So do more than 65 per cent of Canadians. A recent poll by the Railway Association of Canada found that the majority of Canadians believe rail should be the highest transportation priority in Canada. Even more people — 87 per cent — believe that improving infrastructure for freight travelling by rail should also be a priority. Unfortunately, the Conservative government does not agree. It voted against a New Democrat private member’s Jean Crowder: bill that would have created for rail a national transit strategy for Canada. That makes Canada the only G-7 country without a national transit strategy and the resulting co-ordination of transportation priorities. For example, the New Democrat strategy would have included the provision for the federal government to “provide a leadership role to align, on a national basis, public transit visions, planning goals, project justi¿cation, construction time frames and budgets.” Of course, sustained, predictable funding would be part of the tools to bring that strategy to life. But at the federal level, we also need research monies to identify innovation in sustainable transit and freight technologies and to facilitate the shift to new systems that are more ef¿cient, cost-effective and pollute less. The cost to Canada’s economy is great — nearly $10 billion in economic damages every year from traf¿c gridlock. When you consider that while we are waiting for federal funding to repair the Island Corridor rail line, we are losing tourism revenue and companies are paying higher freight fees to move products by truck, it is easy to see how those economic damages can add up. And with more freight travelling by rail, road accidents are reduced, which is also good for the economy and good for our communities. New Democrats will continue to insist that investing in railways is good for the economy and that it will create jobs and enhance our communities’ quality of life while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Island Corridor Foundation is a great example of how a co-ordinated strategy can work to bring partners together — First Nations, regional districts, municipalities and the province are all working together to make it a success. I will continue to do my part as the federal representative for NanaimoCowichan to get the federal government to the table. Jean Crowder is the MP for Nanaimo-Cowichan.

Group rings the bell for fallen schools Bell-shaped: markers to mark identify of 15 schools that once taught Cowichan children John McKinley

News Leader Pictorial


chool bells will soon be ringing in 15 new — and old — locations in Cowichan. Bell-shaped historical markers to be installed in the coming weeks will mark the locations of 15 schools that once taught Cowichan children. They are part of a Cowichan Valley Schools Heritage Society effort to create a permanent record of schools no longer in service. Spanning 150 years of Cowichan history, the project has identi¿ed more

than 80 former school sites ranging from Bamberton in the south to Kissinger Lake in the west and Crofton in the north. Each of the schools has some interesting anecdotal history, project co-ordinator Lois Joyce said in a press release. They are three of the ¿rst 15 chosen for their high historical and sighting value. They include: Alderlea School, Bamberton School, the third Bench School, Cobble Hill School, the second Crofton School, Duncan Grammar School, Duncan High School, Gibbins Road School, Honeymoon Bay School, Nitinat (Camp 3) School, the ¿rst Maple Bay School, the second Maple


Bay School, Quamichan School, the second Somenos School and York Road School. The CVSHS is sponsored by the Cowichan Valley Retired Teachers’Association and the B.C. Retired Teachers’ Association. The latter provided a grant of $3,000 to make it happen. It welcomes information from the public on any aspect regarding former schools of the valley, especially photographs, anecdotes, student notebooks and yearbooks.

y the way, did you hear: • After refereeing the recent Duncan Christian School Secondary boys’ volleyball tournament, longtime Vancouver Island volleyball guru Vic Lindal and his associate Kent Andrews wanted to put in a plug for the well-trained supercon¿dent linespeople DCS teacher Tom Veenstra and his crew provide, who makes their jobs a delight. (And the chili at the concession is always something to look forward to, as well). • Madelaine MacLeod likens the Cowichan Station Area Association to an expectant mother these days as the old Cowichan Station School continues its transformation into the Hub. The contract to return the building’s roof to its original double-pitch design was awarded to Green Isle Homes. Work to install the trusses started Oct. 29. • Jason Kolt says the crew at the Island Savings’ downtown Duncan branch on Evans Street is settling in after moving to the new Duncan Mall of¿ce on Oct. 27. The grand opening event for the new “Duncan Centre” outlet is Saturday, Nov. 17 at noon. • Rob Douglas tells us Cowichan Co-operative Connections is among six ¿nalists in a national competition organized by The Co-operators for new and emerging co-ops.

Allison replaced Chances’ longtime boss Dave Clarke. • Koksilah resident Jeremy Poole has set up a small home-based business producing totally recycled doormats from local waste product. He’s looking to get his Blue Heron Mats displayed in local stores. • Duncan-born knight Sir Conrad Swan is still advising the Cowichan Valley Museum about questions and queries from Cowichan’s archives, found on city hall’s third Àoor, says curator Kathryn Gagnon. She recently sent Sir Conrad a photo from the 1969 Leader showing Swan toasted as a herald. The man instrumental in inventing Canada’s Àag, and our Order of Canada, lives in Suffolk, England.

Shirley Behnsen is retiring from the Bank of Montreal

After 37 years of hard work and dedication It's time to take a permanent vacation! The clock has been punched for the last time! The daily grind has been left behind No more meetings or pages to fax! It's time it kick back and relax. I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank-you to all my wonderful customers & staff that I have worked with over the years, It will be each of you that I will miss the most. I look forward to keeping involved in my community. Thanks again for your loyalty & commitment. It has been great fun! Sincerely, Shirl


ane Siberry is a contradictory musician. She performs underground, yet is a popular mainstream singer. This off-beat songstress is coming to Duncan and if the past is any indication, audiences are in for a different experience. The music is about what she feels and what inspires her, and that can be just about anything. “You don’t get inspired, you stay inspired. I get inspired from things around me that create joy and I try to capture it somehow. I ¿nd it stimulating and my own way of not repeating myself — like it’s always a new game or something.” Siberry said. Siberry’s offbeat music can’t be labelled as a certain sound or genre. After a 35-year career as a professional musician, staying fresh isn’t a problem. “My style is global-oriented, quixotic-oriented. It’s visionary, impractical, romantic, rash, lofty, and foolish,” she said. “If I felt I was getting repetitive or not enjoying it I’d stop...I wouldn’t do it if I wasn’t having fun.” Siberry stays away from big clubs and larger performances. She prefers to play in salons and smaller venues. She says she is tired of jaded music industry professionals who are no longer in it for the love of music. “I don’t like dealing with music industry people. That’s why I don’t do clubs very often now. Anything (a club owner) does for the musician it is for the good of the audience,” she said.

“If they have things to make the musicians, who have been travelling everyday, to make them look good, that kind of thing, it’s good energy. Everything they don’t do, takes away from the audience. I know you loved music once, but you don’t anymore but music is still special so you should get out it.” Siberry’s intimate and personal focus can make her harder to ¿nd for mainstream audiences. But those who watch her shows get more than just a performance. “More and more I feel like when I perform I’m in a cosmic school room, where I send energy out to the audience and they send it back with re¿nements. I feel like I’m being trained by the audience,” she said. “It is connecting with the audience and it informs me about the music. Because I’m doing small salons, most of the time it’s already a group of people who are tuned to my type of music so we are able to go out on a limb more quickly. Mysterious things happen.”

Terrie Pickering, Funeral Director


Siberry’s music tries to connect emotionally with the listener and create an experience audiences just can’t get with many mainstream artists. “I think it is like falling in love, you fall in love with yourself and what I try to do. I think in my music people see a reÀection of themselves that makes them love themselves better. “Part of a musician’s job can be saying things in a way that gives people a hook to hang their hat on. They hear it how they would say it, if they were speaking from their place of power or in a positive way.” Siberry encourages everyone to contact her and follow her North American tour through her facebook page,, and website.

Cuevas offers sophisticated jazz with some Latin spice


Subtle, strong, elegant, sophisticated yet simple and honest. That is how The Live Music Report described Eliana Cuevas’ singing, stage presence and music. Cuevas brings her “driving Caribbean rhythms and first class Latin” music and her five-piece band to Duncan, Nov. 11 in a special treat for fans of live jazz.

“(She’s) playing for the Victoria Jazz Society on Friday,” promoter Longevity John Falkner said in a release. “We were in the right place at the right time . ”After a decade of intensive performing, writing and composing, Cuevas is regarded as one of Canada’s finest world and jazz music performers and creators,” her promotional material states.

“Her songwriting style with musical elements that draw on Latin American popular tradition, North American pop, jazz and more, has resulted in a hybrid branch of world music difficult to define and impossible to forget.” The show starts at 8 p.m. at the Duncan Garage Showroom. Tickets are $20 door, $18 in advance.

Expect a Workman-like effort from Canuck rocker Hawksley Cowichan Theatre show: Prolific Juno songsmith, actor and playwright stages his Warm Land debut Peter W. Rusland

awksley Workman doesn’t wait for his musical muse to strike. “There’s a muse in every moment,” said the double Juno-winning creator of 13 CDs who’s Cowichan Theatre-bound Nov. 8. “Songwriting isn’t work or a job. If I sit at the piano with a pad and a tape recorder, I’ll write a song. “I make the time, and have faith in the process I see as development of a craft rather than waiting for the muse,” the nice guy said from the road in Saskatoon. The Ontario-based multi-instrumentalist (born Ryan Corrigan) will be backed by pianist Mr. Lonely (Todd Lumley) during Thursday’s valley debut. “I’ll mostly play guitar, some harmonica, and some this’s and that’s,” said Workman, 37, whose tunes also span TV shows Scrubs, Being Human, Queer As Folk, and Whistler. But Workman isn’t pushing a new record on his current tour. “We just wanted to get out and play, and be in front of people. I don’t tour like I used to.” Workman’s success lets him rejig annual “We just wanted gigs to 80-some from 300 a decade ago. to get out and That allows the runplay, and be in ner, swimmer, cook, front of people.” woodworker and nature lover to enjoy his Huntsville spread with his wife — between spells in his home studio. “We like to garden, watch birds and see bears in our yard,” he said, cognizant of his industry’s urban rat-race. “Progress seems to have a pace of its own, and it’s getting a lot quicker.

calls to you. It’s not the life I chose, but the life that chose me. “I thought the internet would make it easier to reach an audience, but there’s such a deluge of music that it’s hard to ¿nd a core group to follow your music devoutly. “One Pitchfork review can make you a star, but then you can be abandoned.” So Workman thanked steady fame that heard him and Great Big Sea pen the theme song for CBC’s Republic Of Doyle. Other Canuck inÀuences include The Tragically Hip, Blue Rodeo, “lots of my peers”, plus John Southworth and Spookey Ruben. He cited Bruce Cockburn, Led Zeppelin and Michael Jackson as main musical heroes. “But Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and other Canadians — minus Bob Dylan — have given the world its benchmark material,” Workman said, shrugging cabaretpop and glam-rock labels. “Few of my records follow a pattern. In the early days I made glam rock, but I’ve made folk records too — I write lyrical songs meant for people. “I see my audience as people just like me; kind of switched on. I imagine they drink wine, have travelled, know something about good food, and listen to the CBC.” Art follows craftsmanship in Workman’s world. “There’s a requisite symmetry, like being a carpenter. It has to be a chest of drawers before you can paint it.” Last year’s palette produced his musical play The God That Comes. “It’s about the myth of Bacchus, the god of wine, sex and revelry,” he said, laughing when asked if God is autobiographical. “I know about excess. This play feels quite relevant right now,” the actor said of its March opening in Calgary. “The world is having this social and economic austerity imposed on it. There’s de¿nitely some political narrative in there. “I’m revisiting the notion we humans need to sit and have a glass of wine together. We have to batten down the hatches and rid ourselves of needs and desires to keep our noses to the grindstone. It really revitalized me doing this play.” Workman was stumped to name an alternate

pirited competition from here, there and everywhere: â&#x20AC;˘ Queen Margaretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School Grade 7 student Madison Heisterman put her speed and distance talents together to easily take gold in her age division at the B.C. cross country championships in Abbotsford. Heisterman completed the 3,000-metre event in 10:49.00, 20 seconds ahead of her nearest competitor. Heisterman, who trains with her coach and father Tyler Heisterman in Nanaimo, is already a veteran on the long-distance circuit. In addition to her wins at the school district and provincial levels last season, she participated in the Hersheyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Track and Field Games in Hershey, Pennsylvania this summer and brought home gold in the 800-metre race. â&#x20AC;˘ Cowichan Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peewee Tier 2 Capitals hosted their own Thanksgiving hockey tournament at Fuller Lake Arena and placed third in the Tier 2 category.

He scored again midway through the second half and the defence did the rest. The backline of C.J. Pagaduan, Connor Farrell, Damian Forest, Sam Gillman and Ben Slang, along with midÂżelder Tyler Frueh, did a great job of not allowing Sooke to capitalize on any through balls.

Caps seek remedy for late goals

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 25

“Make Some Noise!!”

Losing points: Comeback all for naught after Coquitlam beats the clock Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial


he Cowichan Valley Capitals couldn’t have started the weekend any better. The ¿nish just wasn’t there. The Caps went into Victoria Friday night and beat the Grizzlies 3-1 for their second straight B.C. Hockey League win. But the wheels came off a bit in back-to-back home games, as the Caps fell 3-2 to the Powell River Kings Saturday night and 4-3 to the Coquitlam Express Sunday. The Caps had a realistic chance to sweep the weekend. Both Powell River and Coquitlam were without key players attending the World Junior A Challenge tournament in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. “We had a good opportunity this weekend to crawl back up in the standings,’’ said Caps’ coach Jim Ingram. “It’s very frustrating.’’ Sunday’s game left an especially sour taste in the coach’s mouth. The Caps trailed 3-0 heading into the third period against Coquitlam but scored three goals to tie it, including two just six seconds apart. With at least a point seemingly in the bag, they squandered it by giving up a goal with just 15 seconds remaining in regulation time. “Until it’s zero seconds on the board, you’ve got to ¿nish,’’ said Ingram. The malady has actually occurred a few times this season and those lost points are making a difference.




Andrew Leong

Wide eyes of Powell River’s Jordan Benton and the Caps’ Mikael Jung follow the puck, as it’s Åipped over Kings’ goalie Braeden Ostepchuk. “They do add up when the rest of the division is winning,’’ said Ingram. “The league’s tight again this year. It’s just ¿nishing, but we’re a million miles away at this point.’’ Ingram can only ¿nd fault with the players for not bearing down at the right times. Otherwise, the effort is there and the results aren’t happening from a lack of trying. “It’s certainly testing the mental toughness of our group,’’ said Ingram. “I’m seeing a lot of good things. The kids are going, ‘what do we need to do here?’’’ Ingram ¿nds it rather interesting to compare the situation with last year’s team that could do no wrong for a while. The Caps collected at least a

Youth Athlete of the Week

point in 16 straight games, even when they didn’t necessarily play well. “This year, we’re giving points away,’’ said Ingram. “Last year it didn’t matter what we did.’’ In Victoria, the Caps were led by a superb three-point effort from Mikael Jung in beating the Grizzlies. The Caps also found themselves trailing 2-0 against the Kings before Jung ¿nally scored late in the second period. The Kings added another before Steen Cooper closed out the scoring in the last 19 seconds. Third-period goals in the Coquitlam game came from Keyler Bruce, Grant Nicholson and Ryan Hanes. The Caps are home to Nanaimo Saturday at 7 p.m.

The Grade 10 student at Duncan Christian School lives in Ladysmith and is a member of the Ladysmith/Chemainus Orcas Swim Club. Rae, 15, was recently accepted into the Ignite Athlete Development Program and received an $826 scholarship to participate. It means she’ll be doing a multi-faceted training regime while focusing on nutrition and workouts outside the pool to complement her swimming practice schedule. The 50-metre fly is Rae’s specialty event. “Right now, I’m a half second off my national time,’’ she said. Rae has been hampered somewhat by injury but hopes to put that all behind her. “I have been encouraged by my physiotherapist, massage therapist and chiropractor to pursue more cross training experience to prevent any more muscle injuries due to the repetition that I endure in swimming daily,’’ she indicated.

Score not indicative of play Soccer showdown: Cowichan scores on three of just a handful of dangerous chances Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial


3-2 game might normally signify a straight offence-oriented style of play, but not in the case of Cowichan LMG Pringle and the Saanich Fusion. The two Div. 1 Island Soccer League powerhouses clashed at the Ladysmith Turf Saturday, with Cowichan coming out on top of the ¿ve goals shared between the teams. Cowichan thus ran the table in the ¿rst round with nine straight wins. The team went 8-1 over the ¿rst nine last year, making it 17-1 overall to start the last two seasons. Cowichan knew it had to be in top form against the Fusion that also came into the game undefeated. The teams jockeyed for position in the mid¿eld and made the scoring chances count. “We didn’t generate many chances — maybe ¿ve and put three away,’’ said Cowichan coach Glen Martin. “To pull it out was really good. They didn’t really push hard at the end. There was no scare to tie it.’’ Cowichan vaulted into a 2-0 lead on two beautiful goals a few minutes apart. Riley Taiji started the play on the ¿rst goal, getting the ball to Chris Arnett, who sent a cross to brother Matt Arnett for a clinical left-foot ¿nish. Jesse Winter struck on a

header a short time later off a Tyler Hughes set piece. Cowichan had a big opportunity to put Saanich away early, but couldn’t sustain the momentum. “We did have a bit of a lull after that,’’ said Martin. “We took a couple of stupid fouls in our own end.’’ Saanich maintained play in the Cowichan end from the fouls and eventually wound up cutting the margin to 2-1 at the half. Saanich came all the way back to equalize on a weird goal in the second half. A shot went over goalkeeper Joel Wilson’s head, hit the crossbar and landed right at the feet of an attacker for a goal. It stayed that way until the 67th minute when Cowichan put its set piece magic to work. Hughes landed a free kick in the perfect place for Bram Taylor’s header that proved to be the game-winner. Cowichan held Saanich’s highscoring duo of Cooper Barry and Patrick Nelson in check without any dangerous opportunities. Saanich picked up a red card in the last few minutes and Cowichan played out the clock. The game was every bit as tough as Martin expected in the ¿nal analysis. “They hung in there,’’ he said. “I give them credit for that.’’ Kevan Brown played his last game for the team for a while. He’s taken employment in Alberta.

Martin has already ¿lled the void from his absence by signing Dan Cato, a Vancouver Island University student who will be available for the Gorge game in two weeks. Martin also has a line on signing Sam Beswick, who played for Gordon Head the last three years but is now living in Duncan. Cowichan plays its ¿rst road game of the season Friday night at Victoria’s Royal Athletic Park against Bays United Liquor Plus, the division’s other top team. Martin said it’ll be interesting to see how that plays out. “They’re a turf team. We’re a grass team,’’ he said. Div. 2 Cowichan United played its best game of the season, according to coach Neall Rowlings, but still lost 2-0 to ¿rst-place Lakehill United. “We did everything right with the exception of scoring goals,’’ noted Rowlings. “We pressured early with our young, fast, ¿t team and they scored on a counterattack with a perfect touch and a perfect ¿nish.’’ From that point at about 25 minutes, Lakehill played cautiously. Cowichan pressed and had some chances, including a header by Jorden Korven that nearly resulted in a goal. Lakehill scored its second goal on a counterattack with Cowichan pressing. Darian Achurch made a breakaway save late in the game.

t was just like old times for the Cowichan Secondary School senior girls’ ¿eld hockey team. After a three-year absence, Cowichan is back on top of the island AAA heap after demolishing the competition Friday and Saturday at UVic with ¿ve convincing wins by a combined score of 34-0. Coach Gillian Braun, who’s also back after an absence of a few years, admitted it’s a bit of a weak year on the island. But that doesn’t diminish Cowichan’s resurgent strength and how well the girls played.

“We’ve also seen weak island zones in the past and not being able to ¿nish teams off,’’ said Braun. “They were going for it full-bore, every minute of every game.’’ Cowichan breezed through Friday’s pool play, trouncing Vanier 9-0, Reynolds 8-0 and Claremont 9-0. The crossover was against Frances Kelsey that had lost 2-1 to Oak Bay. “This has been the stumbling block for this team over the last three years has been the semi¿nal game,’’ said Braun. Cowichan and Kelsey hadn’t met since early October so a barnburner was expected. But Cowichan took immediate control. “I’ve never seen a Cowichan team so determined in the ¿rst ¿ve minutes of a game,’’ said

Braun. “We had possession of the ball 90 per cent of the game.’’ That set up the ¿nal against an Oak Bay team that did not perform very well in the Bridgman tournament, according to Braun. “They have improved 100 per cent. They have a solid core but they’re weak in the next group.’’ After a scoreless ¿rst half, Cowichan turned on the afterburners on the strength of two goals by Grade 10 player Beth Corish. Standouts were seen throughout the lineup. “We haven’t given up a goal since the Bridgman,’’ said Braun. “I haven’t had the pleasure of having a solid three-line team.’’ Cowichan heads to provincials next week in Coquitlam.

News Leader Pictorial


erry Park Islanders obviously have a lot of ground to make up after taking 16 games to post their Âżrst win of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season. Climbing back into contention isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to happen overnight. But the Islanders revived their spirits by posting their second straight victory Thursday by knocking off the Westshore Wolves in Victoria 5-2. However, the enormity of their situation kicked in after back-to-back losses to two of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top teams. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that the Islanders were overwhelmed, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just going to require efforts above and beyond the call of duty to take any points from the Victoria Cougars or the Saanich

Braves. The Islanders lost 6-2 to the Cougars Saturday night and dropped a 5-4 squeaker to the Braves Sunday afternoon at Kerry Park Arena. Connor Krupaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shorthanded marker was the winner against the Wolves that broke a 2-2 tie. Brett Vestby, Corey Peterson, Tylor Branzsen and Kyle Green added the other markers. Alex Milligan and Braden Lundahl were the marksmen against the Cougars. Kyle Peterson (2), Milligan and Branzsen scored against the Braves.
