Climbing to new heights Malti Devi eyes Mt. Kilimanjaro trek as a personal challenge and a quest help orphans Daniel Palmer News staff

or most people, the prospect of climbing one of the world’s tallest mountains might seem more than a little intimidating. Months of training, travelling halfway around the world, dealing with altitude sickness, health risks and unreliable weather are challenges and luxuries few can afford and even fewer crave. But Malti Devi isn’t your average woman. “I want to find out what I’m capable of,” says Devi, her eyes widening with intention. In August, Devi, 37, plans to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro, not only to test her endurance, but to raise funds for Children of Haiti, a City of Langford charity that has already raised more than $250,000 to build and operate an orphanage near Port-au-Prince after the country’s devastating earthquake in 2010. But it’s her personal climb from the dusty farming fields of the South Pacific that make Devi’s story so inspiring. She grew up as the youngest of four daughters on a sugarcane farm on the outskirts of Tavarau, Fiji. “I was one of those little kids that stood on the side of the road, selling vegetables in bare feet in the gravel,” she recalls, once a sponsor child herself. “Remembering those days, coming home, being hungry, you never outlive that,” she says. “And I don’t want to outlive it, because that’s what has kept me grounded.” At 21, her family sent her to live with relatives in Chilliwack, hoping for better opportunities. She arrived with $65 in her pocket, and admits her naiveté would have been her undoing, were it not for several serendipitous people she met along the way.

F

“Academically, I was smart, but I was not street smart,” she says. She learnt English working in a fast food restaurant and by doing accounting work at a local agriculture company, but knew she was destined for greater things. “(My first employers) took a shot in the dark, they didn’t know me or owe me anything, but they helped me. I want to do that for somebody else.” To simplify the petite, 5-foot-2 entrepreneur’s accomplishments in the 16 years since coming to Canada would be a disservice. Her formal training is in graphic design, a venture that brought her to Victoria in 2000 to attend the Pacific Academy of Design. But in an average whirlwind week the Fijian native also does photography, marketing for a biofuel company and still manages to fit in several hours of daily training for her climb. Mt. Kilimanjaro is the world’s tallest free-standing peak at 5,898 metres and second in elevation only to Mt. Everest. Tanzanian officials don’t permit climbers to make the trek in less than five days, and despite its reputation as the least punishing of the global seven summits, Devi cautions the task is no casual jaunt. A veteran of regional peaks, she has a habit of bringing a pair of high heels on each climb. She straps them on at the summit, “like a race car changing its tires,” and captures proof of her feat. Kilimanjaro will be no exception, says the selfprofessed tomboy. “In Fiji, the ultimate goal is to be a housewife – to cook, clean and sew,” she says, her confidence belying her humble roots. “I want to be that, and be a businesswoman and a humanitarian all at the same time.” Judging from her list of accomplishments, it seems she’s already well on her way to conquering those mountains.

The watermain break on Bowker Avenue that left basements flooded and residents displaced is perhaps best summed up by Coun. Michelle Kirby as “an unfortunate experience, but a learning experience nonetheless.” On Monday, councillors commented on chief administrative officer Mark Brennan’s report of the Nov. 20 incident, one Kirby found particularly stressful. “These were my neighbours one street over and it was very difficult not having a clear plan as to who was to talk to these residents, and not really knowing what my role was, or whose role it was to talk to them,” Kirby said. A key component of the learning experience will be having identified protocol around contact point people, she said.

Two teens who attempted to steal a wallet and maced their victim during last year’s Oak Bay Tea Party were found guilty last week. The pair, who were both 15 years old at the time, received court imposed 12-month sentences of intensive support, and one year of probation with strict conditions. On June 2, 2012, around 2 p.m. Oak Bay Police responded to an armed robbery in the 2400-block of Beach Dr. where a group of Asian home-stay students were approached by a pair of teens. One youth grabbed a home-stay student and stole his wallet. The wallet owner and his friend fought back, and they were maced.

Oak Bay council unanimously accepted Brennan’s report, which includes a summary of events and staff recommendations, but not without questioning from where the necessary funds will come to cover recommendations such as equipping public works field staff with portable data devices. A staff planning group will meet on Jan. 30 to review the recommendations and begin drafting standard procedures. “This report speaks to how we can do things better in the future,” said Mayor Nils Jensen. “We certainly regret the damage and the stress that resulted from the situation.” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Coins and wallets made for prime targets for a thief or thieves, after six vehicles parked in Oak Bay were entered last week. Five of the six vehicles – parked on Hazel Street, Wessex Close, Cardiff Place, Henderson Road and Woodburn Avenue – were left unlocked. A window in the sixth vehicle – parked on Westdowne Road – was smashed to get at a wallet, containing a small amount of cash and two credit cards. Oak Bay police remind vehicle owners to lock their vehicles and remove any valuables.

come must down University of Victoria Juggling Club member Dawn Monette demonstrates her juggling technique in the university Student Union Building. Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Jugglers from around the region and beyond meet this weekend Natalie North News staff

Dawn Monette thought she had learned all there was to know about juggling once she had read an instruction book and taught herself the basic three-ball cascade. Then a chance encounter with the Vancouver Juggling Club changed the course of her life. “They started teaching me things immediately,” says Monette, who lived in Vancouver at the time. “I met a man and he told me to come to the Victoria Juggling Festival 2005. When I came here, my mind was blown. I had no idea juggling was so involved, that it had so much versatility, so many facets.” When Monette attended the Victoria festival, run by the University of Victoria Juggling Club, she immediately decided to transfer from Capilano University to the University of Victoria. She would take on organizing the 2008, 2009 and 2013 festivals, the latter set to take the city this weekend. Monette, better known to some as Dawn Dreams, sits at the club’s table, stacked high

harder when you get up toward your late50s. You don’t have the same reflexes.” Club president Patrick Conley joined the group after about three years of experience with the classic three-ball cascade. Since that time he’s added cigar box juggling to his repertoire, a skill more about catching than throwing and playing with the shape of a box, he explains. A graceful demo involving green, yellow and pink cigar boxes in flight back up his claim. Though the club is a student-run organization, it is open to the community and welcomes new members. “Anyone can pick up a ball and throw it in a creative and wonderful way and find a sense of satisfaction from that. We’re open to anybody. … How young, how old a person is, that’s not really of use to us, it’s just: ‘What can you show me? What can you create?’” Monette says. “Our community ranges from young to old, either gender, every walk of life in general and it’s as old as dirt.” nnorth@saanichnews.com

HELP SOLVE Attempted Robbery and Stabbing At approximately 8:15 p.m. on Dec. 29, 2012, seven young men were socializing in a large shed in the 3900-block of Ayton Place in Langford. Two suspects wearing balaclavas and armed with an imitation pistol, knife and bear spray burst into the garage and demanded money and cellphones from the males. The suspects struck at least one of the victims on the head with a pistol, and punched and kicked several others. The victims fought back and during the melee several victims were bear sprayed. While being chased off the property, a suspect stabbed one of the victims in the armpit area. One suspect was described as a white teenaged male, 5’11” to 6’1” tall, heavy set and wearing loose, dark clothing. The second male was described as a white teenaged male, 5’10” tall, slender and wearing dark clothing. Two of the victims were transported to Victoria General Hospital for treatment.

Oak Bay Rotary strong in 2012 Victoria club turns 100 Natalie North News staff

When a Vancouver newspaper published a list of the top 100 fundraising charities in B.C. the Rotary Club was curiously left from the list. That sparked the first study of charitable fundraising by Rotary Clubs in B.C., which found that in 2012 the 147 clubs raised $8.5 million – including $64,000 from the Rotary Club of Oak Bay – and landed the charity a spot among the province’s best. Individual Oak Bay members directly donated $23,000 to the Rotary Foundation, an international foundation committed to improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The 60-member club also raised $34,000 through club fundraisers in Oak Bay, including a Tuscan dinner, involvement at the Oak Bay Tea Party, a Thrifty Foods smile card program, a poinsettia sale, the Merrython run and the Bowker Creek Brush Up. A portion of funds raised have been set aside for what will become a teen centre within the new Oak Bay High. The club has sponsored the current teen centre, located at a portable on school grounds and open during lunch hours, said club president Joan Peggs “It’s for students who are quieter in nature and not part of any group,” she said. The club also gave cash to the municipality for the water park at Carnarvon Park,

Transit battle needs tough talk Despite efforts to negotiate a new contract without disrupting transit service, members of the Canadian Auto Workers are taking off their gloves Jan. 22 and walking off the job. Fortunately for Greater Victoria commuters, the one-day strike action is just that – one day. However, that one day will see hundreds of extra cars, bikes and pedestrians on the roads, trying to get to work and school. Gridlock won’t begin to describe the traffic chaos we may be Mediation may part of. be the way out of Transit workers’ action has been Transit impasse job moderate so far with little visible interruption, but this strike will clearly affect everyone in the region. Longer strikes more than 10 years ago seriously impacted seniors, students and those with low incomes who regularly rely on transit. A 1984 strike, which lasted three months, crippled Victoria’s economy, and like mullets and Hammer pants, none of us wants to see that again. The two sides clearly aren’t motivated to reach an agreement, in fact they don’t even agree on what the main stumbling blocks are in the dispute – the union insists it’s all about the small buses and the lower-paid drivers, B.C. Transit says there are other issues at play, including wages and benefits. The two sides have both dug in their heels and the public is suffering, moderately so far, with only certain runs cancelled. But with the Tuesday all-day strike planned, it shows that an outside authority needs to step in and get it done. It’s amazing what sides in a dispute will do when the crisis hits. Just look at the NHL. They got a deal done when the season was on the brink of being cancelled. The best solution for everyone is for the two sides to get back to the bargaining table and realize that compromise is the only solution. The union has to be realistic and unafraid of new technology, and management must assure workers that it’s not out to crush the union. What do you think?

OPINION

Decision to not replace auditor general political A legislative committee has determined that the time has come to replace B.C.’s current auditor general. John Doyle, with considerable credentials, accepted the position in 2007. He is to be commended on doing an exceptionally fine job as the watchdog for the people of British Columbia. As auditor general, one of Mr. Doyle’s mandates was to investigate and ensure that any misdeeds, questionable hidden agendas and scandals of the governing party were brought to the attention of the citizens of British Columbia. He has succeeded in this function by exposing the present government’s secrecy in the Basi-Virk political corruption case, the highly controversial use of deferral accounts for B.C. Hydro and mismanagement of financial accountability. So, why was Mr. Doyle’s contract not extended for a second term? Obviously, the Liberals on the legislative committee, who made this childish, vindictive and self-serving decision, have the majority vote and decided that Mr. Doyle was uncovering and exposing too many political hot buttons that the Liberals had hoped the public would forget. This decision not to renew Mr. Doyle’s mandate is a travesty of justice and should be reassessed. The public deserves the real reason for Mr. Doyle’s rejection for a second term. Some advice to the present governing party: If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen! Martin L. Battle Victoria

Ole Heggen’s cartoon insightful I know why I always look forward to O. J. Heggen’s cartoons – he is so insightful! “John Doyle likely on the way out” (Jan. 11) says it all. The

File photo

The decision not to reappoint B.C. auditor general John Doyle was childish and vindictive, says a letterwriter. B.C. Liberals – led by Premier Christy Clark – want a lap dog not a watchdog of taxpayer’s money. No wonder his cartoon character says, “We thought it was time for a change!!” What sin – exactly – did Auditor General Doyle commit? Was it revealing the financial contributions Timberwest made to the Liberals before the land deal? Or raising alarm bells over the use of massive deferral accounts at B.C. Hydro? Maybe exposing serious issues of financial accountability of the legislature itself? Surely there is a benefit to having continuity in the auditor general’s role of attempting to have open and accountable government – something the premier promised during the Liberal leadership race. Ron Faris Saanich

Booze laws encourage drinking I am always amazed how people can rally for any cause, regardless whether it is worthwhile or not, but don’t seem too concerned about drunk drivers. Why are British Columbians

drinking more? The answer is easy. The provincial government has made it so easy to drink whenever and wherever you want. How many provinces allow booze to be served in pubs until 4 a.m., at sporting events, movie theatres or BYOB to a restaurant? Drinking laws need to be even tougher. This very “Liberal” government is more interested in the bucks the booze makes for them. It appears people’s lives don’t count. Change is needed now. Eileen Nattrass Saanichton

CPP, EI and medical are benefits - not taxes For the second year in a row, the B.C. Taxpayers Federation is spreading misinformation about payroll tax and MSP premiums. MSP premiums are not a tax they are a user fee. Depending on your net income, you can have all or part of your MSP premiums subsidized. The provincial government has nothing to do with CPP or EI premiums and only those who earn more than $50,000 a year pay the maximum CPP contributions. You do not pay CPP premiums on the first $3,500 you earn each year, and you do not pay CPP when you are under 18 and over 70. The more you contribute to your CPP, the more you get back later in life. As for EI, hopefully you get some back in lean times. There was no EI or CPP during the Depression. In fact, their was no income tax until midway through the First World War. Employment Insurance, then called Unemployment Insurance, commenced in 1941 as a result of the Great Depression of the 1930s. Andre Mollon Langford

Unfortunately at the same time testosterone is decreasing, estrogen levels are increasing, causing further muscle loss and gain in body fat, making it extremely difficult to maintain a healthy metabolism. Along with a program of proper nutrition and regular exercise, researchers have discovered a group of naturally proven nutrients that can help you safely reduce excess estrogen while maximizing testosterone levels. Ultimate Male Energy™ contains 100% natural ingredients like: Chrysin, Stinging Nettle Root Extract, Indole-3-Carbinol and Broccoli Sprout Powder to help restore healthy, youthful hormone balance by positively affecting both estrogen and testosterone production, which ultimately helps a man look, feel and perform at his best.

Construction for the Henderson Recreation Centre expansion has begun. An official sod-turning ceremony held Tuesday led the way for the three-month long project, which will include an expanded fitness studio with more program space and stretching area, improved free space in the gym, expansion and upgrades to the Muffin Nook and the afterschool care program areas, updated washroom facilities and upgrades to the building’s heating and weather proofing systems. Ledcor Construction is in charge of the 830 square foot expansion, made possible thanks to a recreation infrastructure grant of $373,718 from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. The grant is part of a $30-million provincewide initiative to fund smaller-scale recreation infrastructure in communities outside the Lower Mainland. During construction, access to the Henderson Recreation Centre will be via the east end side doors. A temporary reception centre has been set up in the foyer outside the gymnasium. Rec centre staff are working to minimize the disruptions and closures to the facility, however, there may be interruptions, noise disturbance and closures to the fitness studio and other areas of the centre occasionally. The Henderson Recreation staff will notify patrons of any upcoming closures with signage and website updates as well as phone calls or emails to people in registered classes. Residents are welcome to use the Oak Bay Recreation Centre to continue usual drop-in workouts. The project is expected to be complete by April 15. Check the Recreation Oak Bay website at oakbay.ca and the Henderson Expansion Project notice board for regular project updates. editor@oakbaynews.com

Testosterone levels begin to diminish in men around age 30. In fact, by the time men are 60 years old, they typically produce 60% less testosterone than they did at age 20 (a man’s sexual peak). Many men over the age of 35 may already be feeling the effects of lower testosterone including:

Winterlab festival features innovation Sensory experience will cure the winter blues Kyle Slavin News staff

The sights, sounds and smells of a post-apocalyptic city in ruins are yours to explore, as your tour guides – a group of clowns – take you on a storied ride through the city. It’s a movie, it’s a live performance and it makes for a “weird, touching and beautiful” theatre experience. “It crosses the line between being a film experience and being a live experience,” Janet Munsil says of Il Pixel Rosso’s And the Birds Fell From the Sky. “It’s a very immersive experience because your vision is taken away and replaced with a video. And there’s audio. And then there’s a live performance going on around you. … You can’t see the performance, but you can feel the performance. Things are being put in your hand, and you can smell

Il Pixel Rosso’s part-film, part-live performance show And the Birds Fell From the Sky will show as part of Intrepid Theatre’s upcoming festival, Winterlab. And the Birds Fell From the Sky uses video goggles, headphones and live performers to take viewers on the immersive tour of a post-apocalyptic city in ruins. the performance in places.” This “sensory experience” is one of four international shows coming to Vic-

toria as part of Intrepid Theatre’s new festival, Winterlab. Munsil, Intrepid’s artistic director, says the new, small festival will expose theatregoers to some of the “most exciting independent theatre-work out there in the world.” While she points to And the Birds’ unique form of sto-

rytelling as innovative (“It’s not audience participation – only two people are in the audience – but you’re both completely immersed in the experience.”), she says all the shows have qualities that make them special, and a treat to have in Victoria. Also showing at the festival is Vanessa Van Durme’s Look Mummy, I’m Dancing, Wonderheads’ Grim & Fischer, and two visual performance pieces using overhead projector animation from Daniel Barrow. Winterlab will also feature a workshop from Il Pixel Rosso on combining technology with live performance, and a Playwright’s Cabaret, readings of new works by local playwrights. “It’s the most cold and boring time of the year. It’s a good time to shake yourself awake with some really extraordinary theatre experiences – stuff like you’ve never seen before,” Munsil says. Winterlab runs Jan. 23 to Feb. 3, with shows running at Intrepid Theatre Club (#2-1609 Blanshard St.) and Metro Studio (1411 Quadra St.). Tickets, from $18 to a $69 festival pass, can be purchased online at ticketrocket. org or by calling 250-590-6291.

Laser Hair Removal… Does it matter where I go? Spa or salon equipment often gives poor or temporary results. Machines such as IPL or Nd:Yag laser may require 50-100% more treatments to see results when compared to a diode laser. A skin clinic with a Physician grade laser and experienced technicians is truly your best option for safe and effective laser hair removal treatments.

Jessica Renfrew is team-first and there’s no other way about it. The selfless basketball player has hit a new level this year as a regular starter for the UVic Vikes. On Tuesday the 20-year-old was named Canada West’s Athlete of the Week for all sports, having helped the Vikes to a pair of road wins. Renfrew scored 21 points in the Vikes’ 72-51 win over the Winnipeg Wesmen and 23 points in a 79-62 win over the Manitoba Bisons on Friday and Saturday to win the award. It’s all part of the Renfrew’s arrival as an all-star calibre player in the CIS. “She won’t see it that way,” said Vikes coach Dani Sinclair. “Renfrew just wants what’s best for the team. She’s very unselfish. Nobody works harder than her. She’s in the gym every single day, even in the summer, and it’s not for personal accolades, but because she wants the team to succeed.” “I can’t remember any award that is as honouring as this one,” Renfrew said. “There are a lot of great basketball players in my league and my teammates

have been super congratulatory (about Athlete of the Week), but it’s only because of our team success. I couldn’t have done it without the support of the team.” It might sound cliché, but only to a point. Before Renfrew joined the Vikes she was named Claremont secondary’s high school athlete of the year for her contributions to the provincial champion soccer team and basketball team that made the final-four. Only thing is, she’s not exactly sure which year she won it. “Grade 11, I think.” Renfrew’s now in her third season with the Vikes and is part of a core of younger players with fellow third-year Cassandra Goodis who bring promise to the rest of this season, and beyond. Already Renfrew has seen the Vikes shift through major adversity. Her first year under former coach Brian Cheng was “a huge learning curve” playing behind CIS MVP Kayla Dykstra and veteran Vanessa Forstbauer. Then came the surprise second half to her rookie year, when injuries ended Dykstra’s and Forstbauer’s seasons, which led to regular floor time for Renfrew. Then came the Vikes’ rebuild last season under new head coach Rich Chambers (currently on leave). “I played a lot, and started, but it didn’t go as well as we’d hoped,” Renfrew said.

During those years Renfrew and Sinclair furthere cemented their relationship, one that started back in 2004 when Sinclair was the assistant coach on the 2004 B.C. Summer Games girls basketball team. Renfrew and Vikes second-year guard Shaylyn Crisp, also of Claremont, was on that team. “Even back then Renfrew showed signs of being able to play at this level,” Sinclair said. “She and I have built a relationship over a number of years, and I joke that I’m harder on her than anyone else, and I might be, so maybe that does go back to the fact that we’ve had a coachplayer relationship for so long.” “It really started to develop this year,” said Renfrew. “With me getting older and (Sinclair) starting to understand each other better, and our desires to be better.” Key to Renfrew’s breakout success this year are the additions she’s made to her game. “She has a pull-up shot now, shoots three consistently, and always has run the floor very well. She’s also become a better defender, a more well-rounded player.” Statistically, fifth-year Vikes guard Debbie Yeboah is third among scorers in the Canada West with 223 points, an average of 18.6 per game. Renfrew is 12th with with 177 points (14.8 ppg). sports@vicnews.com
