Cowichan set to take full credit for carbon Community Carbon Marketplace: National carbon credit pilot project keeping eco-bucks close to home Peter W. Rusland

Georgia Hunt puts her horse through its paces last weekend during an advanced jumping skills workshop at Foxstone Stable in Glenora. Hunt is considered a premier rider by Gail Greenough, who conducted the sessions. Greenough, 52, who still holds the claim to fame of being the only woman and the youngest rider to ever win the World Show Jumping Championship, offered her expertise to Hunt and other local riders at the sessions.

usting carbon by fueling green projects may make Cowichan a national eco-pioneer. A pilot project between Cowichan Energy Alternatives and Duncan council could see municipalities, government ministries, and businesses across Canada buy carbon credits generated by local projects spanning community gardens and tree planting, to parks, recycling drives and solar energy. The catalyst is CEA’s carbon assessments which measure — to provincial and international standards — how much the valley’s various green projects reduce globalwarming carbon. Those offsets can then be sold, on the Àedgling Community Carbon Marketplace, to cities such as Duncan that signed B.C.’s Climate Action Charter toward carbon neutrality by year’s end. “The whole objective is to get small organizations a whole new source of revenue,” said CEA’s Brian Roberts. He likened the Community Carbon Marketplace to a green-projects Craig’s List where cities and others can buy carbon credits. “It’s (deciding) ‘Which project do I want to support?’ then buying credits from them. We have the potential to do really great things here with this carbon trading system.” Roberts’ plan helps locals measure and market carbon offsets to local governments, which are poised to pay into B.C.’s Paci¿c Carbon Trust in 2013. Since 2010, that trust has been Àuffed by public sectors spanning school boards, VIU, hospitals, and many other entities. “It’s supposed to work like tax shifting by putting costs on bad (carbon-rich) activities, helping create renewable energies, and reducing dependence on (fossil fuels).” Duncan Mayor Phil Kent had ¿gured city taxpayers would drop $1,400 a year into the trust — money he’d rather feed into local green initiatives. Now, the city has that

option, thanks to ¿ve projects whose carbon footprint is being CEA-audited. In early December, council will pick from those ¿ve to buy carbon credits, and ful¿ll its 2012 carbon commitment. Credits from quali¿ed but unselected projects will still be eligible for purchase by other buyers after the carbon marketplace’s launch in January. Kent was stoked about keeping Duncan’s carbon cash here while reducing energy use and greenhouse gases. “We felt we needed an option to invest in local solutions.” Roberts noted, “Cities can fund projects already generating carbon offsets, or start new projects and direct community projects toward carbon neutrality.” Home-grown carbon-selling by the CEA’s marketplace could ripple worldwide, Kent indicated. “I hope ultimately it can be duplicated across B.C and across North America and worldwide — it’s people investing in projects to reduce impacts in their own communities.” And compared to the complex carbon trust, Cowichan’s marketplace pilot made sense to Kent. “This is a way we can meet our (charter) objectives, and we can do it as a community trading system.” Roberts explained money in the Paci¿c trust wasn’t accessible to smaller community groups. “The CEA’s been studying the provincial guidelines, and got our certi¿cation to do carbon accounting. We can do the assessments at a fraction of the cost of a big engineering or accounting ¿rm.” Then CEA created the marketplace to help non-pro¿ts — Cowichan Green Communities, Cowichan Recyclists, and others — cut carbon while making money. He’s also pitched the carbon marketplace to North Cowichan Mayor Jon Lefebure, and CVRD environment manager Kate Miller. “They really get it. The timing is perfect. Communities are committed to being carbon neutral, but didn’t have the vehicle to do that.”

UP FRONT

Mayor wants a Chemainus skate park from school-board Santas A Chemainus skate park is on Mayor Jon Lefebure’s Christmas list. By next month, he hopes to hear a positive answer from the school board about using land at the former Chemainus elementary for a longawaited skate- and bike park. While Mural Town boarders and

bikers have visions of half pipes riding in their heads, the mayor realizes the skate park could be a lump of coal for nearby neighbours. “We’ll work hard to make sure neighbours aren’t impacted,” he said, promising noise and privacy buffering — perhaps landscaping

— and locating the park away from homes. The property might also sport a dog park, and a youth centre, Lefebure said after recent rallies demanding a Chemainus skate park be built, someplace.

A Stoney question An issue of access: Planned Stoney Hill road would give access to Maple Bay Peninsula, but opponents fear loss of nature, privacy from the $2.5-million road proposal Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

A

long-awaited road into Maple Bay’s remote Stoney Hill subdivision could be a reality by next year, North Cowichan’s mayor says. But opponents to the planned 7.3-kilometre gravel road, reaching 73 properties — spanning Bird’s Eye Cove and Sansum Narrows — say the road will destroy wildlife habitat and their cherished, secluded lifestyle. Council is considering a bylaw that would remove the land from its forest reserve to build the Maple Bay Peninsula road, costing up to $2.5 million. The project has the petitioned agreement of 46 of the 73 landowners, more than half of the required signatures. The road would see all 73 owners pay about $1,700 a year for 25 years to retire a $2-million loan arranged by council. Residents would also save about $500 in annual fees to cross private property at Bird’s Eye Cove Farm. Council’s $500,000 share would be bankrolled by sales of road-cleared timber, plus proceeds from selling two of six public lots in Stoney Hill, Lefebure said. “There’s no intention to raise taxes to pay for this road,” he said of the planned local area service. In addition to helping residents better access their properties, the public road would also allow better access to municipal forest lands, plus decommissioning and

tree-planting of various side roads. Police cars, ¿re trucks and ambulances would bene¿t from a good Stoney Hill road too. But the mayor realized not everyone will be happy. “Council always has to make dif¿cult decisions, that’s why we have a petition process. It comes down to weighting the wishes of the majority, and wishes of the minority.” Icel Dobell, a 1 1/2-year resident near the Paddy’s Mile Stone side, is gathering signatures as a Road Less Travelled Committee member in an attempt to block the roadbuilding. “Why the hurry?” she asked of council’s drive to build a road she is concerned will impact habitat, and open more development. “What can be developed? The municipal forest?” asked Wendy MacPherson, a ¿ve-year Fairweatherr subdivision resident and project supporter. “The zoning here is for ¿ve-acre lots, minimum.” But Dobell feared road talks held in private, partly due to a long-running legal case involving a property owner and council. “No one knows what’s going on out here; it’s all hidden away. Some people just want to make money. “This gives us an opportunity like

— Peter W. Rusland

no other to study a relatively untouched coastal wilderness,” she said, urging council to delay the road, and strike a task force to study its impacts. Opponents have until 2 p.m. Dec. 14 to gather 2,150 North Cowichan residents’ signatures (10% of the municipality’s population) on of¿cial electoral-response forms, and hand the paperwork to staff. Gaining those signatures would force council to scrap the road plan, or stage a pricey referendum about the bylaw, Mayor Jon Lefebure explained, pegging the vote tab at about $50,000. Given all green lights, the road would start near the Bird’s Eye Cove Farm green gate. “Part of the whole process involves buying right-ofway from the farm,” Lefebure noted. MacPherson signalled respect for Stoney Hill’s nature, but said council should have built a proper road years ago when it developed the subdivision. “It’s still not a road,” she said, citing blind corners and pot holes. “It’s not a safe road to travel.” The new road — part of that suit’s mediated settlement — would also give access to the region’s Sansum Point Park, she explained. “It’s been a long process to something that has the majority of property owners’ support. Some aren’t happy, but this is our best answer to issues we’re facing out here.”

Better access to the Maple Bay Peninsula, including the Sansum Narrows Park (left) is the goal of a public road proposed for beyond these gates. Andrew Leong, Peter W. Rusland/¿le

Private trash haulers want another shot South Cowichan Chamber: CVRD lobbied to give businesses a chance on waste plan Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

C

owichan’s private garbage haulers want a chance to bid on the region’s planned $1.77million tote-and-trash

plan. That pitch was made Wednesday to the regional board by South Cowichan Chamber of Commerce president Mike Hanson. He represented some 13 local haulers who say they’ve been curbed by the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s sweeping trash plan. That borrowing bylaw is under a public alternative approval process. Under that AAP, Cowichanians have until Nov. 26 to gain 2,550 voter signatures on of¿cial forms. Hitting that

Attention Boaters:

number could spark a referendum. Hanson’s request to the CVRD was simple. “We want the process to be transparent and fair. We have a business sector of waste haulers with an interest in having a fair shot at the business. “We want the CVRD to take a pause and review an opportunity for our private sector to bid on this project.” CVRD chairman Rob Hutchins was not available for comment by press time. But Hanson knew regional brass can’t legally respond during the AAP process. “They have to complete the AAP. Then they have an opportunity to act, or not act, once they ¿nish the process.”

Hanson was optimistic the CVRD listened. “We’d like the private sector to have an opportunity to submit a bid similar to what they’re proposing,” he said of the two-truck, 17,000-tote plan involving borrowing over 15 years. “The CVRD can compare what the private sector can offer. If it comes out the CVRD’s a more capable supplier, we won’t have anything else to say — the private sector will have had its shot.” Especially as a looming Multi-Materials B.C. plan could come on stream next year, shifting recycling costs from local taxpayers to consumers and product makers, Hanson explained. “Why move forward with a $1.77million investment knowing the process will shift?”

Federal infrastructure grant means upgrades for Cowichan Sportsplex Don Bodger

he Cowichan Sportsplex received $89,850 in matching federal funds through the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund Wednesday. The funds will be directed toward improvements that include the installation of a rubberized pathway, tness stations, benches, picnic tables and a water fountain. “Here in Duncan, the Cowichan Sportsplex is an important part of community life,’’ said Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversication. “There is, however, always room for improvement.’’ The funding matches contributions made by the community toward improvements to the Legacy Fitness Circuit, a project coinciding with Duncan’s 100th anniversary. “This is at least the third federal grant the Sportsplex has received,’’ pointed out Chestereld Sports Society president Don McClintock. Previous grants were directed toward the track and ball diamonds. “These matching federal funds effectively double our community fundraising efforts, bringing more tness possibilities to folks who prefer to exercise in a natural setting or may not be able to afford to go to a gym,’’ noted McClintock.

Thursday, November 29th 2012 5 pm Dinner / 6 pm Meeting

Federal Minister of State for Western Economic Diversication Lynne Yelich announces $89,850 in federal funding for improvements to the Cowichan Sportsplex Wednesday. “It’s an exciting milestone for our community,’’ added Sportsplex executive director Catherine Brandon. “I look forward to seeing the results of this investment and the benets that come with it,’’ said Yelich. The grant does not alleviate the crisis the Sportsplex faces in funding its day-to-day operations. That will continue into the new year when an application for a grant-in-aid goes before the Cowichan Valley Regional District again while the Municipality of North Cowichan and City of Duncan will be solicited for

the usual yearly contributions until a permanent funding formula is found. In the meantime, no one disputes the benets the Sportsplex provides to the community in so many ways. “It’s multi-level,’’ said Simon Young of Real Results Training. “You can have grandparents and grandchildren next to each other. It’s going to help eradicate those reasons why you don’t do tness. “From a tness professional’s perspective, the main thing I want people to do is get moving and keep moving.’’

Penalakut, Lyackson, Halalt, Stzuminus, Lake Cowichan, and Cowichan Members and their families are encouraged to attend. Infant care will be provided. Any questions please contact the Hulqumi’num Treaty Group at 1-888-9Treaty

Cleaner air a growth industry in Cowichan The green economy: Locals taking the lead

T

he hype about the sweeping carbon-neutral policies enacted by Gordon Campbell during his stint in ofce has faded as quickly as the love voters held for the former premier. That doesn’t change the fact municipalities across the province all signed deals pledging them to be carbon neutral by the end of this year. And it doesn’t alter the reality that higher government and corporate bodies are also faced with increased pressure to reduce their carbon footprints. Each of these bodies have been — and continue to be — taking steps to reduce their emissions. Powersmarting public facilities and trading their Cowichan gas-guzzling vehicles for hybrids and Energy Alterbiodiesel-powered cars and trucks are two of the steps. But for most, that natives shows just is not enough to meet their obligations the way under the Climate Action Charter and other regulations. And to bridge the gap between targets and realities, there is the carbon offset. Essentially, a carbon offset is a project that is reducing the level of greenhouse gas being pumped into the atmosphere. Clean energy projects like wind power or solar are the most commonly cited examples. But there are several other things that qualify, things as varied as planting trees and providing energy audits. Cowichan is at the forefront of this with Cowichan Energy Alternatives creating the Community Carbon Marketplace, a place where people who need carbon offsets can purchase them from local people who can provide them. The good news is that means local bodies like the City of Duncan can purchase their carbon offsets right here at home, instead of buying them outside of Cowichan. The better news is people outside of Cowichan can buy them here. In other words, we’re growing the local economy by cleaning the environment. It doesn’t get much better than that.

We say:

Seeing both sides of: Stoney Hill roadbuilding plan The case against

The case for Residents pay taxes to municipalities in exchange for services. If a majority of homeowners want better access to their properties and are willing to pay for it, the municipality would be derelict in its duty if it didn’t respond. This is an attempt to meet an existing need. It only opens the door to future development if that’s what the community wants.

Improved access to Stoney Point starts here.

y father served. My uncles and aunts served. My grandfather was a London re warden. My mother was a war child, transported to the safe areas when the London Blitz was happening. I remember these small details but know little else of my family’s contribution to the war effort. We emigrated from England when I was young, effectively separating me from family memories. My father died when I was not much older, taking with him his war experiences that I wish he could have shared with me. Most other family members from those years have also left this Earth. The only family war experiences that remain for me are unidentied photos of warships and the young men who manned them. Coming of age during the Vietnam war, and viewing the images of war photojournalists,

moved me to a place of wanting peace and ending the constant slaughter of young men and innocent civilians. If I were then who I have become now, I would have been there capturing images that tell the true side of war, images that hopefully would contribute to bringing war to an end, as did the Vietnam war shooters. Most people I know are completely against war. There are always those notable exceptions. They are everywhere, but they are a minority in this country. I have learned in my many travels, warmongers are a minority in most countries. I also know many who serve, one of whom ies helicopters in Afghanistan. Being young, and a little reckless, he fears death, but still follows orders blindly as many before him have done, often to their graves or a lifetime of hard memories. And yet we continue to arm ourselves, prepare ourselves against others who, according to our leaders, may one day come and take what is ours. Protect our un-defendable borders, buy new planes, build a modern eet, and arm ourselves

Stoney Hill is one of the most rugged and remote pieces of land on the Cowichan coastline. It is parkland and forestland and secluded properties and it really should remain that way. Council should have no obligation to improving access to property owners who knew what they were getting into when they bought. They do have an obligation to protect it for what it is.

with high-tech arms and equipment. The cost is horrendous. The money spent would be far better used helping our own people and others around the world. The spin is on, as I have noticed recently our federal government in power now has a new mantra: “resource (oil) income now pays for our social services, our health care, and our education.” Since petro dollars are now providing us with such a good life then where are our tax dollars going? Can I assume then that our tax dollars are now going to support Canada’s new hawkish attitude? When were we asked if we wanted our tax dollars to go towards more planes and better technology to wage war under the false pretense of peacekeeping? I don’t remember this happening. I realize, of course, that, when we elect a government, we also elect it to make decisions for us. And yet, here we are, with about a third of Canadians supporting a government that makes

decisions that are inherently against what most Canadians believe in. So Remembrance Day comes and goes, seemingly faster every year, while the veterans’ ranks from the old wars thin as the years pass. Now we have new veterans, veterans from Bosnia, Afghanistan and many other distant lands. They too suffer the horrible memories of death, destruction and loss. The cycle never seems to end. Whether it is a red poppy or a poppy with a ag pin at its centre, or a white poppy symbolizing peace, the message is the same. Thank and remember those who have fallen but at the same time work toward ending the need for more to fall. Paul Fletcher is former Duncan city councillor who writes monthly in the News Leader Pictorial.

Scam may be common, but I hope the response is not

Your remembering and respect meant more than you know

Dear editor Regarding the fraud attempt on Kris Kann (Nov. 9 NLP). I realize the internet is full of scams daily. However, I ¿nd it disappointing that our national police force, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, paid no attention to this matter other than appearing to just slough it off. Obviously they have these kind of scam events daily, probably across the country in the hundreds, if not more. But that’s no excuse not to have a follow-up on what appears to be an open-and-shut kind of scam considering the amount of money involved and what appears to be an easy track back to look into.

Chemainus skatepark going to turn into another money pit

Dear editor There appears to be a rather cavalier attitude on the part of of¿cialdom regarding the use of taxpayer dollars and of the public’s ability and willingness to bear the burden. One case in point is the proposed Chemainus skateboard park. Apparently $350,000 has been set aside and is awaiting a go-ahead of construction. While this money may be suf¿cient to lay the concrete for a small to modest park, it does nothing to address the need for essential associated infrastructure such as washrooms, parking, security fencing, lights etc. which will add signi¿cantly to total construction costs. In view of this, it beggars belief that while there are several existing sites already owned by the municipality with infrastructure in place, the mayor is pushing for the acquisition of a new piece of land, the old elementary school site. As proposed this would require not only the duplication of infrastructure but could potentially include the removal of the old elementary school, a demolition project fraught with hidden ¿nancial risks. The site is owned by the Cowichan Valley School District. A transfer of a portion to the municipality would require a subdivision and sale. Great news for the cash-strapped SD79, not so much for cash-strapped North Cowichan and its ratepayers. To get around that problem the mayor is apparently trying to obtain the required land from SD79 as a

Gerald has served 600 days in Afghanistan. Christmas gift. No word yet as to if SD79 will be asked to gift additional funds for site cleanup and necessary infrastructure. One also wonders how SD79 could possibly justify the giveaway of a valuable piece of property in view of its own budget challenges. From the timeline identi¿ed by the mayor this land transfer with its associated budget and tax implications could soon become a done deal unless citizens let the municipality and SD79 know of its concerns. I urge you to let of¿cialdom know your views before this unnecessary ¿nancial burden is thrust upon us. Allen Schernus Chemainus

Telus and Shawnigan Äre department should join forces

Dear editor There are some things that are good about the proposed cellular towers in the valley and the idea they would help people out is true to an extent. It seems if Telus wants a tower placement, tthe spot picked for the new Shawnigan Lake ¿re station would, most probably, be mutually bbene¿cial to both parties. The coverage area would be approximately ((not tested) all of Shawnigan Lake (easiily) down the highway towards Langford, aacross the inlet to the Highlands and possibly B Butchart Garden and the bay area, which are rreally lacking coverage. Why mutually bene¿cial? Cash is cash, aand when it comes to ¿re protection, and ccommunications, they go hand in hand. Telus

Speed limit needs to be lowered through Mill Bay

Dear editor We really need to look seriously at reducing to 60 kilometres per hour the speed limit between Frayne Road and Cobble Hill Road, north of Mill Bay. It is really hard to safely slow going into the turn lanes from the fast lane or to merge onto the highway when people are travelling at 90 to 110 kilometres per hour through Mill Bay. It is really a small town centre. People should be able to go through there doing their shopping and banking without constant fear of being tailgated and rear-ended. Barry Ewacha Shawnigan Lake

attended the Remembrance Day ceremony in Duncan with my children: my son a (trying) three-year-old; my daughter, 16 months; and my eight-year-old stepdaughter. It was wet and cold. My kids were ready to leave about ¿ve minutes before the ceremony even started and they made that quite clear. Out of respect for everyone else, I struggled to keep them quiet. I took turns snuggling them and trying to warm them up and keep a smile on their face, although in all my attempts, I was failing miserably. My eyes were starting to well with tears and my patience was starting to fade. What was unknown to the most gracious couple beside me and another sympathetic mom behind me was we were your average military family in the throes of a deployment. This week marks my ¿rst month of an eight-month deployment done. I greatly underestimated how hard attending the service would be. I felt like I was holding on by a thread, staying strong for the little people that look up to me to have it all together. Seeing naval personnel in uniform tugged at my heart, and I would have given almost anything for a hug from my husband that day. My children found the service unbearable, and when we got home, I asked my son what was wrong. “Me hurt,” he said. It took everything inside of me not to let the tears stream down my face. It was a tough day. But to the wonderful, gracious strangers who tried to help cheer my kids and keep a smile on my face, I just wanted to say thank you. It meant the world to know, in a time of great distress for me, you smiled at me, and didn’t snarl, you offered kind words of encouragement instead of disapproval and not for a second did you make me feel like I should leave. I didn’t feel judged for not being able to calm my children. You made me feel like you understood. Despite how tough deployments are, I just want to tell you how brave my children are and how happy they are most of the time. It makes me feel like my husband and I are doing this right. He video chats with us as much as possible, he plays peek-a-boo with our youngest, reads favourite stories to our son, and chats with our eldest about her day at school. We treasure our family time together. Remembrance Day for us is remembering freedom is never free. Please know I took my children back to the cenotaph on Tuesday after school so they could lay their poppies and say thank you to all the heroic people that make Canada the country it is. I want them to grow up being thankful for the heroes that have come before them, especially their daddy. I never got a chance to say thank you, for I knew if I started to tell you about myself and where my husband is right now, I would have been a puddle of tears. So now, I hope you read this and know I will not forget your sweet, warm smiles on such a dark, dreary day.

he party will soon be over for bicyclists damaging Cobble Hill’s cenotaph. Area director Gerry Giles learned of the chipped-stone damage just after Sunday’s Remembrance Day service. Now she aims to have a metal chain, or other safeguards, installed to keep disrespectful bikes off the sacred war monument being damaged by metal pedals and other bike parts. Other ideas to physically ¿x the vandalism may come from talking to folks in other cites dealing with damaged stone monuments. Giles also said a nearby barber Peter W.

Montreal’s Lost Fingers carve their unique niche in rocked-up Gypsy jazz

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A15

HOSPITAL FOUNDATION ANNUAL APPEAL

T

hey may have lost a ¿nger but they still found the beat. The Lost Fingers is a Gypsy jazz band that is internationally renowned for its innovative sound and gets its inspiration from legendary musician, Django Reinhardt. At the age of 18, Reinhardt lost ¿ngers in a tragic ¿re. To compensate for his missing digits, Reinhardt developed a unique jazz-inspired style of guitar playing that the Lost Fingers incorporate into their music. When they stapled that style to familiar ‘80s radio tunes, the Lost Fingers became something of an international sensation, playing at venues around the world. Gypsy jazz is a special form of music and it can be dif¿cult to achieve the same level of success The Lost Fingers have enjoyed. “Gypsy jazz is a very underground and niche kind of thing. People are very passionate about it but it’s a niche kind of jazz,” guitarist and backup singer Byron Mikaloff said. “But we’ve brought this whole rock show element to it. What a crazy idea we had to take gypsy jazz out of its usual role and bring it to more people.” That unusual take includes material like a Gypsy swing take on the Culture Club and an AC/DC cover featuring a scat vocal solo.

Paradise Not Yet Lost We don’t want to sound negative or like alarmists but an event of great magnitude that will be of profound consequence now and forever in our valley is about to take place. A public vote, to be cast over the next month, will decide the fate of The Peninsula of Maple Bay and Sansum Narrows. The electorate of North Cowichan has until December 14th to decide whether this land remains a wilderness with parkland that could increasingly become available to the public, or whether it is developed into yet another suburb. The Peninsula is some of the most extraordinary land anywhere. It is considered sacred and inviolable by many—so sacred and rare that last year, private donations and money from The Land Conservancy and CVRD made possible the creation of Sansum Narrows Park. “We,” the people, who are paying for this Ad, are a group of citizens committed to the protection and preservation of The Peninsula for the public and the greater good. We call ourselves The Road Less Traveled Committee. Residents of The Peninsula formed “Road Less” a year ago. Since then, the ad hoc committee has grown and is now comprised of citizens throughout the valley. We, as a community, Ànd ourselves once again at a pivotal moment like the one that preceded the sprawling suburbanization across the face of Mt. Tzouhalem. In retrospect there is no denying that, as a community, we were apathetic and uninformed. The golf course was not inevitable, as we have learnt the hard way, the golf course on Tzouhalem was not inevitable. The hideous scar on the mountains is visible from just about everywhere in the valley. It serves as a daily reminder of what a developer might do and the Municipal Government might permit as long as we, the public, take not action. The communal sense of regret and irresponsibility endures. If we now repeat this story on The Peninsula, imagine the post-mortem shame and guilt. The situation on The Peninsula is unique. Because the only access at this time is a private farm road that is the only access at this time has protected The Peninsula from developers. As a consequence, relatively few people know about this land. It’s a catch-22. The anonymity that has served as its greatest defense may in the end mean its’ ruin. The only hope, if it is to be saved, is that through sincere, rigorous effort over the next three weeks, enough people might communicate to the valley what is at stake. If the people of the Valley knew this land, they would be moved to action. If the land could speak for itself. At this point perhaps our best bet is a miracle. Words can never convey the power of extraordinary land, such as the great national parks, The Grand Canyon, Zion, and the rest. The Peninsula is on the level of a National Park. If the public could see the inexplicable rock formations of The Peninsula and knew what will be obliterated for a developer’s road, the outcry would resound from the cliffs and bluffs to the Valley. For those who know Maple Bay, Paddy’s Milestone serves as a clue to what lies beyond. Paddy’s, which Áoats out on its reef at the entrance to the bay, is the exclamation mark that punctuates The Peninsula. To many the placement of the great rock at the end of the point is miraculous. It is barely a hint of the wonderland beyond. In the middle of the Àeld of Bird’s Eye Cove farm, the Áoating island of rock, crowned with trees, like a great Áowerpot Áoating in The Bay of Fundy, is another taste of what many describe as faerie land. Reports in the valley about the development of The Peninsula make it sound like it is fait accompli. It’s not true, any more than it was true of the golf course on Tzouhalem. What is true is that developers have spent a lot of money to make it happen. Unintentional misinformation is rampant. The Maple Bay Community Association e-NEWS states that “More than 60% of local residents…have voted in favour of the public road in Stoney Hill and the project will go ahead….This project will encourage subdivisions.” “Local residents” refer to 73 pri-

In truth, the majority of The Peninsula does not belong to the residents here, it is mostly public land, and the road is not a done deal. The residents of The Peninsula do not have the power to dictate the fate of The Peninsula; this is up to the public. For the road to change in a way that will allow for development of The Peninsula, the Municipal Government must take a section of the existing road out of the Municipal Forest Reserve to dedicate it “for highway purposes.” (This, according to a 2 x 3 inch notice in last week’s paper). The public can stop this from happening. It would require only 10% of North Cowichan’s electors, 2,150 voters, to halt the new road as proposed. Due to lack of information, reports about The Peninsula are confusing and often misleading. Negotiations between The Stoney Hill Road Committee on The Peninsula and the Municipal Government, including petitions back and forth, have been kept from the public and the press for “legal reasons.” This, despite the fact that the public owns not only the forest reserve on The Peninsula but also several waterfront properties that might serve as a string of parks along a bike and pedestrian trail. Strangely, these gems are slated to be sold to help pay for the new road. Why has the public been denied access to this information about the fate of The Peninsula until the last possible moment? We have no idea. And, indeed, where is all this information available? In a myriad of minutes lost in a morass of meetings? Not to blame the Government for not informing the people, but to ask why so little time for the public to assimilate so much information? What’s the big hurry? After all, it took a few billion years to create The Peninsula, is it too much to ask for a couple of months, maybe even 3 or 4, to debate its’ demise? How about a year? Clearly this is not in the interest of developers. What if the word got out? What if benefactors and higher levels of governments took notice? What if this Valley woke up to the reality that is obvious? Our survival depends increasingly on tourism that is reliant on our one commodity: the extraordinary beauty of the land. This natural resource is valuable to us only when preserved. Yet we are squandering it. We are wiping it out. Development after development covers over the original reason most people moved here. We begin to sprawl. What if we seriously began to consider a long-term plan for this Valley that took into account why we are here and what we want to leave behind when we are gone? What if we need less roads and more trails? One of the misleading rumours that we’ve heard about the new road, as proposed, is that it is necessary in order for the public to access The Peninsula as parkland. This isn’t true. There are other ways for the public to enjoy this fragile wilderness without compromising its fragile nature in the process. What follows is some background information. It’s not nearly all you need to know to make an informed decision as a voter. For more information you can go to: roadlesspeninsula.wordpress.com . Also, we are conÀdent that contrary points-of-view in support of the proposed road, hydro and development will continue to appear in the papers: 1. Until 5 years ago when people bought onto The Peninsula the understanding was that the forestry road was a bonus and water access was the deal. 2.“Water Access Only” was always the intention of the M unicipal Government but it turns out it was never a legal description. Five years ago, residents discovered the truth. It’s complicated. There was confusion in the Government that went back years. 3. Those of us who have bought land on the Peninsula, even recently, knew we were getting a deal. We knew we were buying “poor man’s waterfront” at a bargain price because of the dirt road, no services and an ongoing battle with the Municipality about Àlling potholes. We also believe there were 2 developers who sued Bird’s Eye Cove Farm and the Municipality for a road that would allow them to develop their land. Ever since, it seems hardly a day goes by out here without someone talking about suing someone else about something to do with the infamous road. In short, when we bought here, we all knew what we were getting in to: A mess. (Which made the land even cheaper to buy). 4.In the beginning, the people who bought out on The Peninsula weren’t looking for a new road and hydro

that residents on the west side were entitled to. In the beginning there was no talk of being poor “eastenders.” Residents felt fortunate to be living in a protected Paradise. 5. Many residents on The Peninsula moved here because it is a rare coastal wilderness. We never imagined we had the right to change it, develop it, or get rich. It was not our intention. 6. To build the road will cost taxpayers lots of money. (How much money will partially be determined by how much waterfront is sold and for how much). The rumour on the street, in this hood, is that when the road and hydro comes through, “We’ll all get rich.” As far as we, the members of Road Less can tell, this whole deal is mostly about money. We may be wrong, it’s just what we are hearing. 7. There are people of the valley who would like to buy waterfront on the Peninsula. We don’t blame them. These people are all for the Municipality selling the public waterfront for development versus protecting it as park land. 8. Maybe no one should be able to live out here. Maybe it’s too late, maybe it’s not. We believe land is being expropriated from Bird’s Eye Cove Farm against the family’s wishes, after all, even if they are compensated, for a mere road. What if the public decided, upon investigation, that all The Peninsula ought to be a park? What if Provincial and Federal funding was solicited? What if the world beyond our little valley found out about the Peninsula and pressure was brought to bear? Stranger things have happened. When a group of women on Saltspring stood up against loggers a few years ago the story ended up in a New York publication. Sometimes the land strikes a note and it resounds around the globe. 9. Certain residents of The Peninsula would be willing to begin the process of “self-expropriation,” and to give meaning to the term in the process, laying their own land on the line, beginning with Paddy’s Milestone. 10. There are not so very many buildings on The Peninsula to be dismantled. The old cottage at Paddy’s has been rebuilt in such a way that it might serve as

small meeting place). We’re not saying that the whole Peninsula ought to be expropriated or donated, we’re only saying, what if we explore the options for conservation of this extraordinary place before we commit to development. It ought to be noted that relatively few full-time residents use the road. Many propertyowners have yet to build permanent homes. A few of the approximately 12 full-time residents travel back and forth by boat. 11. If the public votes against the road, it will then be possible to demand a public task force be created to conceive a long-term plan for The Peninsula, including thoughtful consideration for the preservation of this most sacred land. If we have learnt anything from the experience of Mt Tzouhalem and other developments that have happened in our valley, The Peninsula is our opportunity to make amends, if not to clear our collective conscience, then to do what is right. Here, again, we have an opportunity to act in such a way that future generations might remember us with gratitude rather than questioning our values, our principles, and our humanity. The public can stop this road and its’ resulting development drive from happening. It would require only 10% of North Cowichan’s electors, 2,150 voters, to stop the road. Elector Response Forms must be signed and submitted to the Municipality by 2 p.m. on December 14th, 2012. Forms can be downloaded off the Municipal website www.northcowichan.ca . Also, forms are available at the Municipal Hall north of town, (7030 TransCanada Highway). They will also be available on our blog. The only persons entitled to sign Elector Response Forms are North Cowichan electors. If you are not an eligible voter in this municipality, we hope you will pass the information on to friends who are.

News Leader Pictorial

E

vil lurking in the hearts of common folks will be dramatically examined in the world premier of a re-vamped Blood Relations starting next week. Director Mike Moroz uses the famously strange case of American ax murderer Lizzie Borden to christen Cowichan’s Àedgling Neighbourhood Players at the Neighbourhood Playhouse, located inside Maple Bay’s Bay Studios. “It’s trial by theatre,” he said of seven seasoned actors asking viewers to judge if unlikely Lizzie killed her father and stepmother in Fall River, Massachusetts. The 1892 case went viral in the U.S. press. Despite Borden’s acquittal, no one else was charged, and speculation about the killer continues still. Relations is based on Canuck playwright Sharon Pollock’s rewritten script. It’s also the basis of Moroz’s master’s thesis through Central Washington University. The veteran director, and “People may Cow High’s have precondrama teacher, exceived notions plained how about who Lizzie he’s using community Borden was, and theatre as maybe this show his vehicle driven by will change their professional mind.” actors, such as Samantha Currie (Miss Lizzie, and ‘the actress’), and Roz Roome (Miss Lizzie, Bridget the maid). “I get out on the (stage-project) edge quite often, but I don’t know

Miss Lizzie (Roz Roome, left) talks to the actress (Samantha Currie) during Neighbourhood Player’s crime-drama Blood Relations at the Neighbourhood Playhouse in Bay Film Studios, Maple Bay. if I’d do this play with high school kids,” he said of two-hour Relations. And it’s immaterial to Moroz if his two-hour show involves an American or a Canadian murder case. “Good stories aren’t American or Canadian; they’re just good stories, and Pollock took a great premise and a great lens to look at this story through.” Relations retells Borden’s story using historic accuracy hinged on Roome and Currie’s characters. Curries ‘actress’ visits Borden’s home a decade after Roome’s Borden was acquitted of the killing. Enter curiosity.

The actress asks Borden if she really killed her relatives. “Lizzie says ‘I’m not going to tell you, but we can play a game and you can be me,’” Moroz explained of details gradually recounted by Borden to the actress. “The actress is less interested in whodunit than whydunit,” Moroz said. “There are ¿ve different theories about who did it, and why,” Currie said. “This show sets it up nicely about which theory you agree with. “People may have preconceived notions about who Lizzie Borden was, and maybe this show will change their mind.”

Roome was fascinated about the famous case so many know so little about. “It’s almost as if it just went away,” she said of ¿nding the real murderer. “The challenge is keeping the time frame separate. For instance, Bridget’s in the moment but in the past. “When I’m Lizzie, the murder is 10 years past, so she’s had time to process things.” Pollock wants viewers to process clues too. “She wants people to examine under what circumstances they’d be compelled to act in a certain way,” said Moroz.

Enclose a porch or deck with glass.

“Forces of society are so enormous that they push us into doing things we wouldn’t normally conceive of. “Pollock’s not solving the mystery, but asking us how we’d respond to this kind of pressure.” Your ticket What: Blood Relations When: Nov. 21-24, Nov. 29-Dec. 1, 7:30 p.m. Where: Neighbourhood Playhouse, Bay Film Studios, 6759 Considine Ave., Maple Bay Tickets: $18, $15 students and seniors; Nov. 21 by donation.

SLOAN, Darquise (Dot) 1933-2012

SMITH, H. Jean (nee Robertson) August 11, 1931 to November 9, 2012 Passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, at Cairnsmore Care Home at the age of 81. Jean was born to Tom and Edith Robertson (predeceased) at King’s Daughters Hospital, Duncan, and grew up in Cobble Hill with her brother Don (Jackie) and sister Joan Kenny (Gary). She worked at the Cobble Hill Telephone switchboard in the days when each call had to be routed manually. Perhaps this created Jean’s passion for keeping people connected – daily telephone chats with her Mother, her lifelong friend Janet McQuhae (predeceased) and, later, her children.

Dot Sloan 79 yrs, died peacefully on Oct 24, 2012 at the lodge on 4th in Ladysmith BC, after a long struggle with cancer. Dot was born Oct 10, 1933, in Cornwall ON, the daughter of Wilfred and Marie Hart. In addition to raising seven children she was a proud grandmother who always put others before her self. And thoroughly enjoyed volunteering at the local food bank. Dot is survived by her sisters: Jocelyne and Doreen, her brother Norman, daughters Debby, Cathy and Christine. son Mike as well as many nieces, nephews and grandchildren. Dot will be deeply missed and never forgotten by those who knew and loved her. A celebration of Dots life will be held at 11am Saturday, Nov 24, 2012 at St Johns Anglican Church, 486 Jubilee St in Duncan. In Lieu of owers a donation may be made to the cancer society or a charity of your choice. On line condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

H.W. Wallace 251 Jubilee St. 250-701-0001

On July 16, 1949 Jean married the love of her life, Lloyd Smith, and together they grew their family, home and vegetable garden. Jean wanted most in life to prepare her children to be independent adults. Achieving her goal with distinction, she earned her reward in wonderful grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was: Mother to Coleen Rogers (Lew), Lynne McBrine (Greg), Steve (Brenda), Stan (Joan), Don (Diane), Gord (Samantha) and Susan; Grandmother to Kristina Giles (Lee), Jennifer McCorkell (Curtis), Tanya, Lee (Aymie), Madyson and Brianna; and Great-Grandmother to Tyson, Keirah and Katelyn. Jean operated an in-home day care for many years, and was an award-winning salesperson for several companies, including Tupperware and Electrolux. She prepared for her empty-nest years by learning to drive, and working in the modern version of a telephone switchboard – a message and security call centre. Then, in her ďŹ fties Jean faced Parkinson’s Syndrome, a challenge she used all her strength and will to resist over the next thirty years. Long immersed in the pioneer lore of Jean’s Dougan heritage, in 1989 Lloyd and Jean travelled to Aylmer, Quebec to meet generations of Lloyd’s Pritchard relatives. The boys’ racing, Vintage Car and Cadillac Club events, and explorations took Jean and Lloyd travelling through the PaciďŹ c Northwest. Having launched her children into the world, Jean turned to preparing Lloyd to manage meals and home without her. Together, they postponed Jean’s move to extended care, and after her move they managed “at homeâ€? weekends, weekly visits to Lily’s hairdresser, and enjoyment of family events for many years. Jean’s 2002 move to Cairnsmore took her back to the site of the old King’s Daughters Hospital. Despite losing many of her capabilities to Parkinson’s in recent years, Jean’s face would light up when Lloyd came into the room, and when a grandchild or great-grandchild climbed into her lap. Jean enjoyed her 80th birthday surrounded by generations of loving family. Thanks to the care of Cairnsmore staff, she enjoyed being well-dressed for each day’s activities, winning games, and staying healthy. A Celebration of Life and Tea Reception will be held to remember Jean on Saturday, November 17th, 2:30 to 4:30 pm at Sands Reception Centre, 187 Trunk Road Duncan, for her family and friends. In lieu of owers, a donation to the Victoria Epilepsy & Parkinson’s Centre, 813 Darwin Ave, Saanich, BC V8X 2X7 (vepc.bc.ca) would be appreciated. Condolences may be offered online at www.sandsduncan.ca SANDS of DUNCAN 250-746-5212

wo Cowichan Bulldogs teams remain in playoff contention. The Midget Bulldogs are hosting the Chilliwack Giants in a battle of the giants Sunday at 1 p.m. at McAdam Park. Both teams ¿nished 7-3 in the Vancouver Mainland Football League, but Cowichan gained the edge for fourth place and relegated Chilliwack to ¿fth based on the tie-breaker. Meanwhile, coach Trent Jones leads his Junior Bantam Bulldogs into Victoria Sunday to play for the island championship. The Bantam Bulldogs ¿nished the regular season ¿fth with a 4-6 mark, just out of the top four required to make the VMFL playoffs. “We were the best underrated team out there,’’ said coach Jeff McDonald. “We didn’t get blown out.’’ The players showed a great commitment. “Three practices a week and a game every Sunday is tough for 10 weeks,’’ noted McDonald.

he Cowichan Valley remains second to none in the development of ¿eld hockey players. The Cowichan Field Hockey Association was wellrepresented at the Under 16 girls’ national tournament in Surrey this summer. Madelyn Smith, Krystyna Neal, Sara Lowes, Chelsey Cleemoff and Casey Crowley played on the B.C. U15 Blue team while Brittany Smith and Kelsey Goodman suited up for the U15 Whites. The B.C. Blue Thunder claimed

the gold medal and the B.C. Whites took the bronze. The results followed the gold medal achieved by the same group of players plus other Cowichan standouts in the coveted Cal Cup tournament in California. Liam Edey played for the B.C. U15 boys’ White squad in national competition. Cowichan players continue to strive for excellence on their respective school teams while coaching in the junior indoor and outdoor programs and playing and umpiring in the Vancouver Island Ladies’ Field Hockey Association leagues.

Shawnigan girls push Collingwood to the limit Provincial nal: Young players continue high field hockey standard Don Bodger

hawnigan Lake School and Collingwood School have quite a running battle going in girls’AA high school eld hockey. The two teams met yet again in the provincial nal last week at Burnaby Lake and it was Collingwood’s turn to take the title away from the defending champions. The fact Shawnigan even made the nal with such a high turnover from last year’s squad of quality players due to graduation is a great testament to the level of hockey being produced by the program. “They matured as a team in this tournament,’’ said co-coach Kelly Koepp. The players obviously felt disheartened by a 1-0 loss to Collingwood in the provincial nal, but Koepp and husband co-coach Benjamin couldn’t have been more proud of them. “We made them aware of what they accomplished,’’ said

Koepp. “I would say all of them except four had never been to the provincials before.’’ Unlike last year when Shawnigan held the upper hand on Collingwood in experience, the tables turned a bit. “They’re quite an experienced team,’’ said Koepp. “They’ve got mostly senior players.’’ Some nervousness showed on the part of the Shawnigan team in the early going. “Our girls were a bit scrambly at the beginning,’’ said Koepp. Collingwood took advantage to score at the 14-minute mark

with the only goal it would need. Shawnigan defended well on a short corner, but Collingwood converted the rebound. “Our girls pretty much dominated after that goal,’’ said Koepp. “They picked it up.’’ But some of that inexperience showed in the remainder of the game, as Shawnigan couldn’t nd the equalizer. “A lot of the teams were quite inexperienced or young,’’ said Koepp. “We’re quite young as well. We have seven juniors on the team. “We knew if they played their

best, they could be in the nal and win.’’ Shawnigan almost pulled it off despite the intense pressure, but it bodes well for next year when the returnees will obviously have a better understanding of what it takes to win the big game. With six games in four days, it was a real challenge for the girls and Koepp called upon the key members of last season’s championship squad to lead the way. “A good portion of our players actually played six games,’’ said Koepp. Taylor Hamm never left the

Silver-medal performance by the Shawnigan Lake School senior girls’ eld hockey team was a great result, considering the level of experience of most of the girls.

Shawnigan squeezed by the competition to take rst place in its pool after beating Okanagan Mission 4-0, going scoreless against Rossland and nipping Crofton House 1-0 in an exciting game. That Crofton House game was the key for Shawnigan to advance.

“We needed to win to come through because the points were so tight,’’ said Koepp. “It was like a mini nal.’’ The playoff round began with another convincing win, 3-0 over Southridge, and then Shawnigan got a golden goal from Nicole Crowley in overtime to take out South Okanagan 1-0 en route to the nal.

Coaching swan song memorable for Zinkan Family affair: Long rugby tenure at Bonner ends with shield presentation to his own son Ted Junior Don Bodger

W News Leader Pictorial

hen Ted Zinkan decided to pass the torch after many years coaching rugby teams at George Bonner School, he never thought it would end by passing the MidIsland midget boys’ championship shield to his own son. Ted Zinkan Senior’s Bonner team lost a long grip on the shield, but he had the honour of presenting it to Ted Junior of Shawnigan Lake School’s team. Shawnigan — coached by Rhodri Samuel, Wes Plater and Ryan Hamilton — prevailed over Bonner 27-7 in the Mid-Island nal.

“Who would ever thought I would be presenting this trophy to my own son?’’ pondered Zinkan. Plater saluted Zinkan Senior for his many long years of service. “He has been the heart of rugby at Bonner and many boys received their introduction to the sport through his dedication and commitment,’’ noted Plater. Zinkan, 59, ofcially retired from teaching in August of last year. But he extended his rugby coaching tenure one more season. Zinkan actually started in the district teaching and coaching rugby at Mount Prevost School before moving over to Bonner. He later went to Quamichan Middle School as a vice-principal and then returned to Bonner in the same post. In all, Zinkan spent 10 years between Prevost and

Quamichan, and 23 coaching rugby at Bonner. Zinkan followed in the footsteps of rugby enthusiasts Gord Morgan and Barry Roome initially at Bonner. “I picked up where they left off,’’ said Zinkan. “I coached forever there.’’ When he returned, “it was like going back to an old family,’’ said Zinkan. “It was quite comfortable.’’ He wanted to make a clean break after the present group. “That group of boys at Bonner I had coached them in Grade 6, last year in Grade 7 and I had to follow it through to Grade 8,’’ Zinkan said. He’s not completely done with coaching, turning his attention to daughter Robyn in soccer and eld hockey. “It’s not like I’m giving up the coaching,’’ said Zinkan. “I’m going to support what she’s doing.’’

From one Ted Zinkan to another, senior presents junior with the championship shield for MidIsland midget boys’ rugby. It was a proud moment for Ted Senior, who never thought he’d have the opportunity to present his own son with the award in his nal season of coaching. Ted Senior has given countless hours to the development and fostering of rugby talent in the valley.

Visit to fallen ÄreÄghters memorial helps local woman say goodbye to her brother

M

any loved ones of our volunteer ¿re¿ghters live with trepidation. Every time there is an emergency, they fear their loved one may not return. It’s a feeling Brittany Brouwer knows well. In 2004, Brouwer’s brother, Dustin Engel had just graduated from Lake Cowichan Secondary and was a volunteer ¿reman with the Sahtlam Fire Department. On June 20, 2004, on his way to a call, Engel was killed in a horrible car accident. In 2005, Brouwer, her mother, grandmother, along with Dustin’s father, Àew to Ottawa to be part of the ceremony and to say goodbye. Seven years later, Brouwer witnessed the honouring of her brother a second time as the Fallen Fire¿ghters Foundation of Canada unveiled the Canadian Fire¿ghters Memorial in Ottawa on Sept. 10. The memorial consists of a wall with the names of all fallen ¿re¿ghters across the country (1,100 since 1848), and a bronze statue of a ¿re¿ghter. The bronze for the statue was donated by ¿re departments from across the country — including Cowichan — in the form of old bronze couplings. Brouwer says this was a different experience than when she Àew to Ottawa the last time. “Whereas last time it was more of a shock, where you’re upset and you’re angry and mad and sad. Where this time I Àew out I was older and we’d mourned and accepted that this had happened. And now it was more of an honour to go out.” But it was also a day of emotion and coming to really understand just how much ¿re¿ghters care about the members of their communities. “They were so amazing. They have their heart on their sleeves, they care so much about you. They don’t even know you, but when I went there the people that I met eight years ago still remembered my name. “The day before the ceremony they did an of¿cial reading of every single ¿reman’s name on the wall because they wanted everybody to know that they’re still included in the ceremony, which was amazing because, although the ceremony was about the six who died last year, it was really about everybody’s name on that wall.” Brouwer went with her

husband Darryl who grew up in Lake Cowichan and is now a volunteer ¿re¿ghter in Chemainus. Brouwer says that after her brother passed away, it took her years to come to terms with it enough to even get her own driver’s licence.

When her husband signed up to be a ¿re¿ghter, she says she had a hard time accepting it. “At ¿rst I was like, no way, you’re not doing this. I can’t go through this again. But then I had to have the perception

that accidents happen and that was an accident. My brother didn’t choose to die, nobody does.” Brouwer has kept the memory of her brother alive over the years on her own by participating in the Great Lake Walk

and raising $1,000 which she donated towards the creation of the Fire¿ghters Memorial, and by having a bench installed in his memory at Point Ideal last December. She adds this bench was important not only to her,

but to others who want to remember Dustin and did not feel comfortable going to the crash site each year. “I would have people telling me that they wanted to go to the crash site, but they would tell me that they can’t anymore,

it’s just too heartbreaking. It’s too sad. I would always go there, but it isn’t a very nice place to remember somebody. You want to remember somebody where they had a great time and it’s more of a happy place.”

t’s hard not to burst out laughing during Wing¿eld’s Folly, and inside the Chemainus Theatre Festival, it’s a sound you hear often, as veteran actor and comedian Rod Beattie performs as Walt Wing¿eld and a host of other colourful characters. Beattie uses a number of different voices — including a woman’s — as he plays different characters throughout the one-man play about a farmer looking for a way to recover from two years of pro¿tless farming. The result is a laugh-out-loud comedy that is also moving, thoughtful and sweet. Throughout the production, Beattie is a newspaper editor, a curmudgeonly old farmer, the farmer’s love interest, a grocery store owner and an assortment of neighbours and

consorts, and it’s pretty amazing to watch Beattie switch effortlessly from one character to the next — often in the same scene and in the same conversation. A former stockbroker, Wing¿eld bought a farm in a small town in Ontario. After two years of not making money, he feels something is wrong with the system. Wing¿eld creates a new currency for himself and his neighbours living on the Seventh Line — the Walt. He develops a formal system of bartering among themselves, and instead of using money, the farmers on the Seventh Line start exchanging Walts for cream, eggs, labour and other goods and services. Each scene in this funny, heartwarming play is one of Wing¿eld’s letters to the editor. We follow Wing¿eld as he struggles with turkeys dying on his farm, contemplates buying a tractor, comes up with a scheme to create a new economic system and falls in love. Beattie’s acting is great — between all the voices, his facial expressions and his use of silence to convey his mood, he keeps you laughing throughout the production.

t could be a music weekend to remember — at least in the classical sense. If an afternoon of insight into the lives, times and music of Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven is the type of thing that gets your pulse racing, you may want to circle next weekend on your calendar. Conversation and hands-on trial-and-error are part of the mix as the Cowichan Valley Music Teachers Association hosts its fourth installment of its Music History series, this time focusing on the classical period. “The workshops, focusing on music composed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, will feature some big names in the music and dance world: pianist Susan

Thursday, November 22, 2012 Shawnigan Lake Community Centre (Dance Room) 2804 Shawnigan Lake Road, Shawnigan Lake 7:00 p.m.

The applicant is proposing to develop the subject property for seven residential lots ranging in size from 1.01 acres to 1.57 acres in size. The subject property is presently zoned F-1 (Primary Forestry) and the applicant is proposing to rezone the property to R-2 (Suburban Residential) to accommodate the subdivision. The development would be accessed from Peterbrook Road and a private strata road and would be connected to the Shawnigan Lake North Water System. Wastewater would be treated onsite through septic ¿elds and a Vegetated Tertiary Filter system. The Electoral Area Services Committee of the CVRD Board directed that a public meeting be held in the community to gauge the interest of the community before the CVRD Board decides whether this application should proceed to the bylaw amendment stage. In the event that does happen, there would be a formal public hearing in the community at a later date. The purpose of the public meeting is twofold: ¿rstly, to generally familiarise the Shawnigan Lake community with the proposed application and secondly, to gather preliminary community input (questions and comments) on the proposed application. This community input will greatly assist the CVRD Directors when they consider this application.
