hen Rim Shin moved to Canada from South Korea with her husband and two children almost 10 years ago, she struggled at first to interact and get important information. Shin, now an immigration settlement worker with the Central Vancouver Island Multicultural Society’s Immigrant Welcome Centre, knew a bit of English before she moved here, but she was overwhelmed at times. “The system is different and there is no translation into Korean,” she said. “I could not

So ometimes when I phoned some ccompany ompany or government office, they couldn’t understand my English because of my accent, so it was very frustrating.” Buying a house in Nanaimo was one of the first roadblocks – the contract was all in English, in tiny letters. The family also wanted information about severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), but struggled to navigate the English-only Vancouver Island Health Authority website. Shin finds Nanaimo to be a welcoming community, but her

accent still makes it hard for some people to understand her. While most clients also have positive experiences in Nanaimo – many talk about the friendliness of residents – some people told her that others stare at them when wearing traditional dress and one client was told by someone to go back to their country of origin because they couldn’t speak English

well. Shin said some people who initially moved to Nanaimo end up moving to the Greater Vancouver area because they want to be with people who speak the same language or are from the same ethnic group; others move to Nanaimo from Vancouver because they want to immerse themselves more in Canadian culture without having that ethnic group to fall back on.

The latest language statistics from the 2011 census show that in Nanaimo the majority of the population – 72,615 out of 83,810 – reported English as their mother tongue, while 1,170 reported French as their mother tongue and 8,115 had a non-official first language. But the language Nanaimoites speak at home is more singular: 78,570 people spoke English at home, compared with 265 French speakers and 2,770 who spoke a non-official language at home. The list of non-official languages spoken is long with Chinese, Dutch, German, Punjabi and Spanish ranked highest. ◆ See ‘INTERNATIONAL’ /5

Inbrief

Mounties nab Alberni suspect

Intruder scared off with shovel A Nanaimo homeowner used a garden shovel to dig his way out of gritty encounter with an intruder. The incident unfolded at a home in the 1000 block of Selkirk Drive in the College Heights district shortly before 8:30 p.m. Wednesday when a man came face to face with an intruder in his garage. Fearing for his safety, he grabbed a shovel and struck the intruder in the torso with it when a brief struggle broke out. The homeowner gave a description to Mounties who arrested the suspect. Steven James Petequan, 36, was charged in Nanaimo provincial court Thursday morning with breaking and entering, assault and two counts of breach of probation. He remains in custody.

Animal cruelty charge earns jail sentence

city scene

A Port Alberni man who fled prior to appearing in court to face a manslaughter charge was caught by Nanaimo RCMP Thursday. William David Oickle, 29, was charged with one count of manslaughter in the death of George Ledrew November 2011, but was free on bail pending his next court appearance scheduled for Nov. 26. Mounties searched a house on St. George Crescent about 10 p.m., and discovered Oickle hiding in a bedroom closet. Oickle was scheduled to appear in Nanaimo provincial court Friday and will remain in custody.

Yard sale clear-out

Workers with Vancouver Island Outdoor Maintenance remove piles of furniture, appliances and other items from the front yard of a rental home at 251 Mt. Benson St. Thursday. Neighbours complained of weekly yard sales, traffic and the appearance of the property. On Oct. 15 the city ordered the tenants and property owner to clean up the property within two weeks or the city would take action. The $1,000 cleanup fee will be paid by the property owner, who is co-operating with the city, and the tenants are facing eviction, said Gord Nixon, bylaw enforcement officer.

A Nanaimo man has been sentenced to six months in jail after being found guilty of nearly beating his girlfriend’s Newfoundland dog to death with a hammer. Matthew Dean Tremblay was sentenced to six months in jail, given a 30-month probation period as well as a 25-year ban on having custody or residing with animals on Nov. 5. According to the B.C. SPCA, Tremblay gained access to the dog, named King, last January in a fenced yard and repeatedly kicked, punched and struck the dog with a hammer. King sustained puncture wounds to his cranium, severe bruising on his head and body, broken and cracked teeth, deep cuts, swelling and an ulceration in his eye. He was also vomiting and urinating blood. According to Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the B.C. SPCA, King has made a full recovery thanks to extensive veterinary treatment and is now living with his owner, Tremblay’s former girlfriend, at an undisclosed location in another province. Tremblay was also ordered to pay $5,233 in restitution for the vet costs. He had already been in custody at

the time of sentencing for breaching a bail condition that prohibited him from having custody of an animal. Tremblay was arrested in October after it was discovered he was residing with another dog. That dog was found unharmed. Judge Ted Gouge said his sentence indicated Tremblay is a danger to society. “Anyone who would inflict such suffering on an animal without the slightest sign of compassion must be regarded as a danger to the community. I do not believe a human being with a healthy psyche could commit such an offence,” said Gouge. Chortyk said the sentence represents a movement toward stronger punishments for people who abuse animals. “We’re seeing more cases resulting in jail time and we’re really pleased to see that,” she said. “The crimes that are inflicted on animals are horrific and it’s good to see society taking it seriously and our courts taking it seriously.” The B.C. SPCA launched an investigation and recommend to the Crown that charges be laid after a witness called the authorities about the attack. The B.C. SPCA investigates more than 7,000 cases of animal abuse annually. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Government business eats up MLAs’ travel budgets BY NIOMI PEARSON THE NEWS BULLETIN

Quarterly financial statements on travel expenses show Nanaimo’s three MLAs claimed more than $58,000 combined over a six-month period. Last week, for the first time, reports from all 85 MLAs were released to the public, showing expense totals from April to Sept. 30 of this year. According to the report, NanaimoCowichan NDP MLA Doug Routley claimed $17,131 for the period, while Nanaimo NDP MLA Leonard Krog’s expenses totalled $15,118. Parksville-Qualicum Liberal MLA Ron Cantelon reported a total of $25,934.

The expense totals are broken down into five categories: capital city allowance, in-constituency travel, general travel, accompanying person travel and speaker approved travel. General travel includes travel outside of the MLA’s constituency within the province. The numbers show Routley claimed $6,253 in expenses, while Krog claimed $5,093, and Cantelon claimed $13,472. Cantelon attributed some of the difference in expenses to having to attend functions and make announcements on behalf of the government when cabinet ministers are unavailable. “It saves their travel expenditure when they’re requested to attend various functions up and down the

Island,” he said. All three MLAs claimed the $6,000 capital city allowance, which allows them to receive compensation for accommodations while sitting at the legislature Mondays to Thursdays. “We’re often staying in Victoria because on a typical evening when the legislature is sitting, we’re down there until 9 or 10 o’clock [p.m.] with events and meetings and often there are receptions,” Routley said. “It would be difficult to expect that people would be driving back and forth every day.” Routley added that in general, MLAs do their best to keep travel expenses down where they can, for example, by taking the ferry to avoid costly flight expenses.

The disclosure is a response to a report by Auditor General John Doyle, released in July, which found that MLA credit card bills were being paid without receipts, and the legislative assembly had continued to fail to produce financial statements, though it was recommended by a previous auditor general. All three MLAs say they are in full support of the disclosure. “There’s no reason not to be open, there’s nothing to hide,” said Cantelon. “People should know what their MLA is doing, why they’re doing it and where they’re going.” For the full reports, please visit www.leg.bc.ca/mla/remuneration/ travel_expenses.htm. reporter3@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo man killed in Mexico remembered for kind nature BY SCOTT STANFIELD BLACK PRESS

Ron Mackintosh was the type of person who wouldn’t hurt a fly, say Comox Valley friends Wendy and Wes Klettke. The former Comox Valley resident was found dead Tuesday near the coastal Mexican town of Barra de Navidad, according to a Guadalajara newspaper. He was 64. Mackintosh was last seen Oct. 21 in the town of Melaque, where he had dropped off a friend. The next day his girlfriend, Marie, reported him missing to police. His body was allegedly found tied to a tree about a kilometre from the centre of the popular beach resort. It appears he was robbed of his money and vehicle. His dog, which was with him at the time of his disappearance, was also not found. Mackintosh lived in Nanaimo before residing in Courtenay and Cumberland. After retiring two years ago from Koers and Associates Engineering, he moved to Barra de Navidad, where he had previously vacationed and where he had developed numerous friendships.

One of the first things Mackintosh did when he arrived was to rescue a dog he found on the beach. “That’s the kind of guy he was,” Wes said, recalling he and his friend were part of a group of about 20 men who met weekly over beers. Mackintosh, who worked as an engineering technician, considered Barra de Navidad a safe place to retire. “Before he moved down there, we went over a lot of stuff,” Wes said. “This was a very calculated move, and he thought about it a lot, but because the pensions don’t pay enough to live up here, then he had to live down there. “He loved it down there. He hated the cold. There were only two or three weeks a year where he was comfortable enough up here. “He definitely didn’t deserve it,” Wes added of his friend’s death. “It’s ironic that it comes just when WestJet’s announcing cheap flights to Puerto Vallarta ... this was his worst nightmare.” Mackintosh leaves behind a son and daughter. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

While the number of people with a nonofficial language as their mother tongue appears to have declined slightly from the 2006 census, the two are not comparable, said Sylvie Lafreniere, a sociology professor at VIU. In 2006, the language information came from the longform questionnaire

distributed to 20 per cent of the population, but since then, the federal government decided not to continue with the long-term census and the 2011 information comes instead from the short-form questionnaire answered by 100 per cent of the population. “So now we don’t have that continua-

Police warn of unlicenced company Nanaimo RCMP are warning the public about an unlicenced company targeting the elderly. Mounties recently received numerous similar complaints from Courtenay to Sidney, B.C., about a group of middle-aged men who go door-to-door offering onthe-spot dryer vent and furnace duct cleaning services. Customers describe the men as unprofessional and aggressive in their soliciting practices and in some cases significant damages were caused and improperly repaired.

Victims have little to no recourse and are often left to cover the cost of the repairs. Police are reminding people they have the right to refuse services offered by solicitors and encourage potential customers to make inquiries through the Better Business Bureau before hiring anyone to perform work at their homes. Anyone who believes they have been the victim of this scam is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-222-8477 or online at www. crimestoppers.com.

Harewood plan identifies issues

I

STRONG SENSE of community clear in early meetings. BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

The second phase of the Harewood Neighbourhood Plan process began this week, beginning with a discussion Wednesday on issues and opportunities Nanaimo’s oldest and largest neighbourhood wants to address. The commencement phase of the plan, which attracted as many as 180 people to one open house, began in the spring and concluded in September. “What we got back from those first two meetings is that there is a very strong sense of community in the Harewood neighbourhood,” said Deborah Jensen, a community planner with the city. “You’ve got families who have been there for generations, you’ve got people who moved in and have been there for 10 or 15 years. They love it there. Obviously there are challenges like unsightly properties and lack of sidewalks and all of those issues will come out, but for the most part the people in Harewood are really proud of their neighbourhood.” With new dimensions being

added to Harewood such as the renovation of University Village shopping centre, inclusion in the Vancouver Island University master plan, and new multifamily housing, Harewood is a changing community. “They’ve been asking for a neighbourhood plan for a number of years now,” said Jensen. A parallel study is being done on the Third Street corridor, a major artery connecting VIU with the downtown core. Jensen said it was only natural to embark on a neighbourhood plan at the same time as the study. The Third Street corridor has been identified in Nanaimo’s official community plan as a priority area for corridor planning and will likely serve as a testing ground for policy, and its results could prove to be precedent setting for other parts of the city. A neighbourhood plan is a set of guidelines outlining how an area should grow and change over time. It deals primarily with land use decisions such as how to address population increases over the next two decades, including issues like housing, transportation, environment and commercial needs. The most recent areas in Nanaimo to conclude plans include the Newcastle-Brechin area and the South End Neighbourhood Association.

Heather Campbell, president of the Harewood Neighbourhood Association, said the process is a good opportunity for residents to have their voices heard in how they would like to see their community progress. “It’s easy to sit back and complain that there are no sidewalks, but the test is how do you fix it?” said Campbell. “I’m really looking forward to some of the ideas that people come up with. The recent issue of Colliery dam, I think, has raised the attention of a lot of people and if that gets them involved in the process, then we’ll have a better discussion overall.” The next step in the process is a design charette at the end of this month. About 12,000 people of diverse demographics reside in Harewood in just under 5,000 residential units. It has a rich coal mining and agricultural history and is home to Colliery Dam Park, Buttertubs Marsh, the Nanaimo Ice Centre and Nanaimo Aquatic Centre. Harewood’s official boundary runs into Chase River near Tenth Street, west to VIU, east to the railway tracks that separate it from the downtown core, and north to Bowen Road. The 12-month planning process is expected to cost about $60,000. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

CANADIAN COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER AWARD 2012

EDITORIAL

Treat veterans with honour On Sunday many of us will gather around cenotaphs and in city squares for solemn ceremonies paying tribute to Canada’s service men and women. We’ll hear words like sacrifice and honour, some of them uttered by politicians. But for some veterans they’ll ring hollow. In 2006, Parliament unanimously passed the New Veterans Charter that changed the way injured soldiers are compensated. Instead of a lifetime pension, indexed to inflation, veterans injured after that year, or who had their injury diagnosed since then, would get a lump sum settlement. But some injured veterans say Canadian soldiers injured in Afghanistan, and those suffering the lingering mental and emotional effects of their tour, are getting substantially less support than they would have received with the former indexed pension. A study by Queen’s University last year concluded most disabled soldiers will receive only two-thirds the compensation under the New Veterans Charter than they would have received from the old Pension Act. Recently Canada’s Auditor-General criticized the Canadian Forces and Veterans Affairs for their shoddy treatment of injured veterans, saying the system to get them help is “complex, lengthy and challenging to navigate.” Even in death, the indignities continue. A program that is supposed to contribute just more than $3,600 to the funeral costs for destitute ex-soldiers has rejected more than two-thirds of funding requests since 2006. Even when approved, that money is still less than some social services departments will pay toward the burial of the homeless. It’s one thing for Canada’s politicians to honour our veterans. It’s another to treat them with the honour they deserve and have earned.

Peace has been a fragile commodity – whether it’s the Second World War, the Korean and Vietnam wars, Serbia, Bosnia, Somalia, Iraq or Afghanistan – it seems the world is always dealing with conflict. And during those conflicts, it’s our armed forces that put themselves in harm’s way, fighting and sacrificing their lives so the rest of us can remain free. Remembrance Day is the opportunity to show our thanks to those who have fought, and continue to fight for those who suffer the oppression of others. It’s a chance to honour those who have died for us. While it is a statutory holiday, it’s more than just another day off from work or school. Take in the 11 a.m. ceremonies at the downtown Nanaimo or Lantzville cenotaphs and show our veterans the respect they deserve. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Aging all mind over matter A To the Editor, Re: Getting old blues a sad song to sing, Reporter’s Viewpoint, Nov. 6. I enjoyed, and agreed, with Chris Bush’s viewpoint. He nailed a few realities on both physical and non. I am 62, and in not ‘bad’ shape (what an oxymoron – bad to infer good). However, as Bush points out, I am older – not old – but for sure, not young. Older really does empha-

size the wise old saying, “Youth is wasted on the young,” and I was a conservative youth, a ‘good’ citizen if you will. I am not complaining. My life is good, very good, in so many areas. But, I am not young. I cannot ignore my body as I did when it was young and it basically took care of itself or, as Bush wrote, my “... young fat cells lacked experience,” and so, even though

it was not designed to fly, it went ahead and did fly. I need to be aware – constantly – of my body. I need to do so much every day, to take care of my body. It is a full-time job. And yes, too, like Bush, convince myself daily that “I’ve never felt better in my life.” It is more mental now than physical (especially when I look in the mirror). So thank you for a thoughtful and realistic –

but sensitive – commentary on that time in our lives between the dawn and darkness when the best is gone, and the worst is next. So enjoy this ‘in between’ time while you can, for as long as you can because the darkness is ahead. I so hope I, “Go not gently in to that dark night,” but instead have the courage to give it the finger. Matthew M. Stevenson, Coquitlam

Hospital conditions unhealthy for patients To the Editor, I enjoy reading letters about the congratulatory and praiseworthy efforts concerning Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and staff. Unfortunately, I experienced the other side of the coin. Due to severe pains, I was taken by ambulance to the new emergency department,where everything seems to be working well and assistance was enthusiastically forthcoming. However, I was told that I would soon be moved to another ward with expert medical care and a more comfortable bed since treatment was expected to last several days. After about two hours in emergency, a staff member said that I would be moved in a few minutes. Fifty minutes later an orderly appeared, and wheeled me to a third floor section located close to the main elevators at the front of the building. Arriving there, my bed and I were pushed into a dingy, unlit ward and almost freezing blankets were provided. When I asked if the heat had been turned off

another staffer decided I needed more blankets and handed me more cold ones. Eventually I obtained a heated blanket by walking around the corridors and asking for one. To say the ward itself is not fit for patients is a gross understatement. Two wards are connected by a common washroom with signs to “please knock before entering.” One toilet and one small sink are all that are provided for four or more people. The toilet itself was grungy and I was glad I had slippers on when I walked on the floor since it was scratched up and could contain who-knowswhat. There were only two staff members on duty on that floor and hardly any patients were visible. After spending two hours in this totally miserable place, I decided to call for a ride home and check myself out as I do not believe I could be expected to stay in such abominable conditions. I have visited better facilities in Third World countries. I hope some renovations are planned for this part of the building soon as I find it

scandalous that sick patients in Canada should be required to accept such an intolerable situation. Jim Wilcox Nanaimo

Salmon farms not to blame To Editor, Re: Farms decimate wild salmon, Letters, Nov. 6. It’s a shame that some have chosen to misrepresent the recommendations of the Cohen Report – a $26 million study looking at the recent decline of Fraser River sockeye. Jim Erkiletian is wrong to suggest the study states that “salmon farms decimate wild salmon populations.” Judge Bruce Cohen actually states he found no evidence that salmon farms have a negative impact on Fraser River sockeye, but suggests that research continue to prove minimal risk. B.C. salmon farmers support this recommendation. The three-year study does clearly state that there is ‘no smoking gun’ and that a myriad of issues including rising water temperatures, habitat loss,

implementation of the wild salmon policy and salmon enhancement require attention. Salmon aquaculture takes fishing pressure off wild salmon – an important part of salmon conservation. It’s therefore important that people, such as Erkiletian, don’t misrepresent the findings of a study that can help us focus on what is important to the long term sustainability of wild salmon.

Students need English first To the Editor, Re: Registration changes aim to curb lineups, Oct. 30. The article brings about an adjunct to teaching French that has me puzzled.

Surely with English being the predominate language, except in Quebec, one would think that language would be taught before French so that the

B.C. JOBS

Nanaimo News Bulletin Saturday, November 10, 2012

www.nanaimobulletin.com

TTransportation industry keeps on truckin’ on Job seekers are in luck when it comes to the commercial road transportation industry in British Columbia. Trucking companies throughout B.C. require professional drivers, mechanics, dispatchers and operations staff right now, which means job seekers with

experience and/or training may find work within their preferred region. For those considering training prior to joining the workforce, demand for skilled-workers in the industry is likely to grow – to 2020 and beyond. There are a number of reasons for this.

For truck drivers, the industry is facing a North America-wide shortage because most are 45 years of age or older and nearing retirement (in fact, in Canada, according to a report by the Canada Trucking Human Resources Council, 58 per cent of long-haul truck drivers fall

in this age range). Similar shortages exist for other jobs, including diesel engine and heavy duty mechanics. Phil Dutton, owner of Parkway Driving Academy in Nanaimo, said even in today’s technological world, there’s work for truckers. “There is one thing that can’t be done through a computer and that is move freight,” he said. “Every single thing a person can look around the office and see, all came on the back of a truck at one point in its life.” Dutton said there are massive shortages in the industry with needs in construction, development, food services, plumbing, logging and fishing, grocery stores, liquor stores and more. “I get calls all the time with people saying, ‘Phil, I need eight drivers, Phil I need six drivers,’” he said. “We did 67 [Class 1 driver’s licences] last year and every one of them is working.”

Aside from worker shortages, economic growth in the Asia Pacific Gateway is also driving demand for workers in transportation. This applies not only to companies in the Lower Mainland, but in other regions as well, since the Asia Pacific Gateway is actually made up of an integrated supply chain of airports, seaports, rail and road connections, and border crossings, from Prince Rupert to Surrey, with links supplied by trucking. Today’s trucking industry is an exciting place to be. Equipment in many companies is state of the art, meaning increased comfort and ease for drivers and opportunities for mechanics to work with technologically advanced systems, keeping both their skills and interest engaged. Dispatch relies on sophisticated tracking and routing systems. Others on the operations side

also use information technology of many kinds to deal with everything from licences and permits, to customer services, accounting, sales and marketing. And, people joining the industry have many career choices. Drivers, for example, may work close to home as pickup and delivery or shorthaul drivers. Those who like the idea of travelling across Canada or North America can become long-haul drivers for an employer or work as owner-operators. Drivers may haul consumer goods, fuel, logs, heavy-duty equipment or livestock. For those with experience as a driver, mechanic or operations work, most companies advertise jobs on their websites. Members of the B.C. Trucking Association from across the province may post jobs under Careers on www. bctrucking.com, and

the provincial and federal governments maintain job sites at WorkB.C., www. workbc.ca/Jobs and Working in Canada, www.workingincanada.gc.ca – go to Explore Careers by Occupation, then by Region. Within a community, it may also pay to approach a company, drop off a résumé and inquire if and when they’ll be hiring. For anyone wanting to enter the industry but needing training, there are also many avenues to explore. Although there is not a standard training course for professional drivers, there are numerous private schools throughout B.C. that offer programs. For information on transportation trades in B.C., including mechanics and other technicians, please visit transCDA at www.tcda.ca/home. For information on trucking careers in general, please see www.truckingcareers.ca.

FOOD MATTERS Marjorie Stewart

Versatile potato packs hefty nutrient punch The potato plays a wondrously subversive economic role because, despite being the world’s fourth-largest food crop, potatoes are not susceptible to trading on the world stock

exchanges. Wheat is easily stored therefore easily gambled with. Coffee prices fluctuate at the whim of commodity futures markets. But potatoes are quintes-

sentially local crops, grown and bought and sold all around the world at prices that are set locally and not subject to international speculation. For more than 40

years my husband has grown root vegetables and stored them over the winter as nourishing staple foods for our family. This year our potato crop will not last us into summer.

So I ordered and paid for online 50 pounds of organic Yukon golds. Until next year’s crop we will have potatoes baked, twice-baked, mashed, roasted plain or

Greek-style, scalloped, hashed or homefried, in curries and salads and latkes. The potato has a bad rep for two main reasons. First is the mistaken assumption that they provide too many calories for too little nourishment. It is the extra butter or sour cream that gives the extra calories. If you use olive oil with a little butter, or substitute Balkan yogurt for sour cream, you can dress the potato deliciously. The second lingering cloud is historic. The Irish famine of the 19th century is blamed on the potato because of the blight that wiped out the whole crop and killed a million people in a nation of eight million. Actually, there was a lesson to that tragedy: a lesson on the folly of monoculture. Only one variety of potato was being grown, therefore its susceptibility to that particular fungus was complete. The Scottish household in which I grew up had a chip pan to make French fries. However, I believe in limiting deep-fried foods, so I have identified places where good poutine or fish and chips are made and I enjoy such delicacies as special treats. The trick to happy eating is not to avoid all rich food, but to indulge sparingly. ◆ Marjorie Stewart is board chair of the Nanaimo Foodshare Society.

CLASSES COMBINE cardio, balance and strength work for a healthy mind and body.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

BY RACHEL STERN

Your posture will benefit. If you leave the muscles unstretched, it throws the whole process out of whack.

THE NEWS BULLETIN

K

eeping fit as you age is an important step in ensuring independence and healthy living. Russell McNeil, a seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fitness instructor for the City of Nanaimoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks, recreation and culture department, said neglecting some muscle groups can lead to several health problems later in life that affect mobility and overall health. Some health problems can stem from three major areas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hamstrings, hip-flexor and chest muscles, said McNeil. Because many people spend so much time sitting throughout the day, these muscles tend to tighten and shorten. If the muscles are left for long-periods of time without any exercise to re-lengthen or strengthen them, by the time a person gets into their senior years it can lead to problems, said McNeil. He said sometimes stoops or problems walking can be caused by these tight muscles. Exercising the back muscles in important as well. McNeil said people tend to have stronger muscles in their front chest area than their back. That imbalance can lead to problems, but it is an area that can be worked on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your posture will benefit enormously,â&#x20AC;? he said, about exercising this muscle group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you leave the muscles unstretched it throws the whole process out of whack.â&#x20AC;? McNeil teaches Level 1 and 2 senior fitness classes at Bowen Park as part of the Harbour City Seniors activities. The classes are geared toward people 60 and older. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are an incredibly fit cohort of people in that age group,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Level 2 builds on the fitness exercises learned in the Level 1 course, which increase the strength and flexibility people have gained previously. McNeil said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a typical mixed fitness class that includes elements of strength, balance, cardio and stretching. The classes start with cardio exercises and then move to balance and strength exercises. During the strength exercises participants use a variety of weights and resistance bands to tone. Then the class moves on to about a 15-minute core workout and finishes off with a five-minute stretch and cool down. McNeil said there are three components that create a healthy lifestyle: mind, body and spirit. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just do two of them in isolation and experience a healthy lifestyle. For more information on the seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fitness classes, please call 250-756-5200 or go to www.nanaimo.ca. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Recreational pursuits improve overall lifestyle BY AMANDA DALY

Have you ever listened to the song I’m in a Hurry by Alabama? Even if you aren’t a country fan the lyrics ring true in all of our lives. “I’m in a hurry to get things done. Oh, I rush and rush until life’s no fun...” These days life moves fast. Perhaps

your job requires lots of hours or you are busy with an active family – running around dropping kids off here and there. With all this rushing around it is easy for life to get out of balance. Take a minute now and think about all the special memories in your life. Chances are many of them

involved recreation through sports and fitness, arts and culture, or nature and the outdoors. There are many benefits of making recreation a priority. Recreational pursuits help you get fit and become more active. While others – and sometimes the same ones – help you spend time with family,

Dementia diagnosis focus of workshop One in three Canadians know someone with Alzheimer’s disease – and the number is projected to skyrocket over the next decade. To help Nanaimo residents better understand the health implications, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. offers a free workshop entitled Getting to Know Dementia. It runs from 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, (Nov. 14). “Participants will receive basic information on dementia and the impact it has on the individual, their care partners, and their support network,” said Jane Hope, the society’s regional education and support coordinator. The workshop is an opportunity to learn about the diagnosis, the importance of planning for the future, and strategies for living well. People with a diagnosis of dementia, care partners, and family members are all invited to attend. Donations would be gratefully accepted. The session takes place at the Alzheimer Society Resource Centre, 200-1585 Bowen Rd. Registration is required, as space is limited. Please contact Hope at 250-734-4170 or jhope@alzheimerbc. org. More information on Alzheimer`s disease, and resources for coping with its impact, is available on the society’s website at www. alzheimerbc.org.

Veteran honoured

I

MERITORIOUS MEDAL highest award granted to legion member.

It’s safe to say members of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 257 (Seaview) in Lantzville owe a debt of gratitude to Georgina Rosewall. A Second World War veteran, Rosewall was instrumental in the formalization of Legion 257 in 1958, and is the last surviving charter member. Involved in the branch executive and membership chairwoman since 1999, she has also served as branch second vicepresident, acting branch secretary, colour party participant, zone executive member and zone chairwoman. Rosewall received a life membership to Branch 257 in 1999, as well as a 75th anniversary medal, branch volunteer of the year, branch service medal

and an achievement award for membership renewal in the 90 per cent range. And to top her year’s of service all off, Rosewall recently received the Meritorious Service Medal, the highest award to be granted to a legion member. “As one of our most respected a cherished members, the branch feels Comrade Rosewall is truly deserving of a Meritorious Service Medal,” said Barry Ostrand, chairman, Branch 257 honours and awards committee. “Apart from her tireless dedication and service, she represents the legion with the utmost devotion, as witnessed by her dress and deportment, and her courteous, fair and respectful behaviour. “She is ever willing to share her wealth of knowledge, and her mentoring has helped ensure continuity in running the branch.”

INFORMATION ADVERTISE in the LARGEST OUTDOOR PUBLICATION IN BC The 2013-2015 BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis

September 6, 1932 ~ October 28, 2012 Glenn leaves to mourn his wife of 43 years, Janet. He will be missed and loved by his daughters, Heather (Derek) and Rosemary (Robert); his step-children, Rod (Heather) and Karen (Dave); grandchildren: Matt (Amber) Ashley, Natasha, Carolyn, Kelsey, Erik; and great granddaughter, Emily. He will also be missed and loved by his only surviving sibling, Agnes (Dennis). Glenn served in the Royal Canadian Navy for 25 years; and was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion for 36 years, the last being Branch 257 Lantzville. There will be no Funeral Service, T at his request. A Celebration of Life will be at a later date.

Dennis (Denny) O. Ryan 1928-2012 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Denny at 3 a.m. November 4, 2012 with his wife at his side. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Florence, his children Wendy (Vern) Ryan, Geordie (Kirby) Glenn, Dr. John (Lynn) Saliken, Annette (Martin) Saliken, and Daniel Saliken, his ten grandchildren, and his nieces and nephews. Denny was born in Toronto and spent most of his early years in Quebec. At the age of 25, he moved to Calgary where he built a number of successful businesses, including Ryan Insurance, and was very active in various positions within the Masonic (Zetland) Lodge. At 54, he met and married Florence in Castlegar, where they retired together in 1982 before settling in Nanaimo in 1991. He is remembered as an amazing man who worked hard, cared deeply, and always gave his best for the people in his life. He will be greatly missed. Thank you to the staff at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital for providing him with excellent care. For more information, contact asaliken@telus.net.

Cross-country runs challenge students

The VIU Mariners made it back to a national final. Vancouver Island University’s men’s soccer team will play for gold at the Canadian Colleges’ Athletic Association championships today (Nov. 10) in Coquitlam. The No. 7-seeded Mariners pulled off two consecutive upsets at the tournament this week, first shutting out the Holland Hurricanes 3-0 on Wednesday and then getting past the host Douglas Royals 2-1 on Thursday. Versus host Douglas, Ben Leggett and Dan Cato scored and g o a l ke e p e r Ro bb i e Cochrane was named man of the match. It was a semifinal that was so good and so intense that it was worthy of being a national final, said Bill Merriman, VIU coach. “Our fans were so loud and so passionate, it was unbelievable,” he said. Now, VIU’s soccer team will play the Humber Hawks in the national final. “Our goal was to get here and what we had to do to get here,” said Merriman. “Now we’re here and we’re in this game. It means so much.” GAME ON … The M’s and Hawks play tonight at 5 p.m. at Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park … VIU won a national championship in 2010.
