Setting sail Langford Navy casts off for West Shore model show Kyle Wells News staff

A brisk morning doesn’t stop the regular group of model ship enthusiasts from gathering on the edge of Langford Lake to shoot the breeze and set sail their homemade handiwork. They’re all men, most retired, and the weekly Wednesday meeting is as much a social activity as it is a chance to test new boats or enjoy operating old favourites. Dave Denton is running a 24-inch Union Jack tugboat he finished building last year after about a year’s work, off and on. Like all the other boats there it runs off an electric, battery-powered motor and Denton controls it from the dock with a large remote. There is another tug of a different style puttering around, along with a model old-fashioned paddle wheeler and a couple of larger sailboats. Another man, who Denton refers to as the “mad scientist” is trying out a rough paddle wheel-type contraption that turns by way of an internal weight that shifts the boat from side to side, dipping one paddlewheel deeper while bringing the other out of the water. The group calls themselves the Langford Navy, but they are a part of the larger Victoria Model Shipbuilding Society, which has members from all over Greater Victoria, along with some from up Island. Ships of all kinds from the society will be on display from Feb. 1 to 3 at the Westshore Town Centre Hobby Show. The builders will be there to answer questions and talk shop with anyone interested in the hobby. Larger model sail boats and power models will be on display, while smaller vessels will be run in the club’s pool, opposite Coast Capital Credit Union. While it’s easy to call model shipbuilding a hobby, for most it is a passion. Denton is a retired shipwright who has been obsessed with boats ever since he was a little boy playing in creeks and his mother insisted he be bought a boat for fear of him drowning. He built his first model, a sailboat, when he was 15, with the help of his father. He has been at it ever since and has served many roles with VMSS, including president. While he enjoys the social aspect of the outings, for Denton the true pleasure lies in the building of the ships. “(You) sit down, quiet, let your brain channel in onto something irrelevant,” Denton said. “You just get downstairs and you build stuff.” Kyle Wells/News staff

Victoria Film Fest screens doc on Colwood-based motivational speaker

It’s not easy staying green

A

motivational speaker without any motivation is a perplexing situation. But that’s exactly the position Colwood resident Steve Donahue found himself in when, after about 15 years on the job, travelling from corporate event to corporate event, he suddenly realized he didn’t care about what he was doing anymore. “It was like Groundhog Day, I told the same story 1,000 times probably,” Donahue said. “One day I wake up and I realize I hate my job. A motivational speaker, and I hate my job. See a little problem there?” Kyle Wells This probReporting lem led to a trip half way around the world and ended with the documentary movie Take My Advice, I Can’t, which will have it’s world premier screening at the Victoria Film Festival on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 9:45 p.m. at Empire Capitol 6 (805 Yates St.). Looking for a new direction, Donahue decided he would rather be a bestselling author. He wrote a book based on his lecture, which revolved around a trip he had made across the Sahara desert at the age of 20. Expecting a hit, Donahue himself purchased 10,000 copies of Shifting

Colwood-based motivational speaker Steve Donahue and local filmmaker Peter Campbell in the Sahara desert during the filming of Take My Advice, I Can’t. The film’s world premier is at the Victoria Film Festival on Feb. 5. Sands to sell. He sold 200 copies. He went bankrupt. He hit a low. “Nothing less than a complete disaster literary-wise, in North America,” Donahue said. Out of curiosity Donahue started calling around to see how the international copies of his book had

sold. Most countries reported similar numbers. Russia: 200 copies. Turkey: 180 copies. Then he found out his book sold 80,000 copies in South Korea and was a bestseller. For the film Donahue visits Korea to meet his readers and try to figure

out why his words touched people there when it sold so poorly everywhere else. He said people there told him the book gave them hope, that it helped change their lives. “They would have tears in their eyes when they would tell me what the book had meant for them and what it had done for them,” Donahue said. “I was just stunned, it’s never happened to me in the past.” Donahue also went back to the place that started it all: the Sahara desert. At Campbell’s insistence Donahue retraced the adventurous steps he had taken as a youth. “It’s very, very moving for me. There’s a scene in the film where I just break down,” Donahue said. “If you tell a story enough you lose the memory of the actual experience. You only remember the story you’ve told. And when I got back to the Sahara it all came back to me like it was yesterday.” The Victoria-based director of the film, Peter Campbell, said it was Donahue himself that drew him to the project. He followed Donahue through his trips to Korea and the Sahara, and said the experience was incredible. “I thought the idea was fabulous,” Campbell said. “I’m really happy with the show. Three years in the making and it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to premier it here in our hometown.” The experienced changed Donahue’s life. He has since written a second book specifically for Korea, entitled 6 Ways to Follow Your Compass, another bestseller. He also found a reinvigorated passion for motivational speaking and is once again giving lectures in the hopes of helping people to change their lives. Tickets for the screening are available at victoriafilmfestival. com. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Steam ships the ‘epitome of model boating,’ says veteran builder Continued from Page A1

Denton is now retired and working on a lifelong dream: a steam-powered 36 inch model tug. “That’s the epitome of model boating, steam power.” Just before Christmas Denton was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, a progressively debilitating motor neurone disease. Den-

ton figures the next boat he builds will be his last, so he decided to spend the money and order a propane-fueled steam engine from England. There are only a couple of steam-powered model boats on the island “You save your money for old age and then here it is,” said Denton. He’ll have the engine and the beginnings of his project at the hobby show, giving visitors the

chance to see a work in progress. VMSS is always looking for new members, especially younger people, of which there is a shortage getting involved. “We’re trying to rescue some,” laughed Denton. “It’s just a nice diversion for the little ones to know they can build with their hands.” For more information visit vmss.ca. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

VicPD officers broke up a Sooke to Sidney dial-a-dope operation last week, attributing the success to the newly created crime reduction unit. Officers seized a handgun, $25,000 in cash and about $20,000 worth of crack cocaine and heroin at two residences in the 1400block of Stadacona Ave. Police will be making an application to seize the residences under the Civil Forfeiture Act. A 34-year-old Victoria man and a 31-yearold Vancouver woman both face charges in the investigation. They were released on a promise to appear in court at a later date. A 28-year-old Victoria woman was also arrested at the time, but her ties to the operation are still under investigation. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Study takes macro look at the West Shore Kyle Wells News staff

With the West Shore business community expanding steadily, the Chamber of Commerce is trying to get a handle on where capital is coming from and how it is influencing the community. To do this the WestShore Chamber of Commerce is conducting a study with the help of Royal Road University graduate student Debbie Nussbaum. The project focuses on companies with holdings in the West Shore and looks at where they are from and what their money brings to, or takes away, from the community. “It was raised by one of our directors who was a tenant and was going around looking for space and was appalled at how he was treated, even as a prospective tenant,” said Chamber CEO Dan Spinner. “He had an ultimately good experience but he started off with a couple of really bad experiences. And he was paying pretty much top dollar for a commercial space.” The survey started last summer with interviews with commercial tenants. It then moved on to analyzing who owns what in the West Shore and talking to the owners about their plans and approaches. Now the survey is focusing on

property managers. Nussbaum is looking at demographics, relationships with primary commercial owners and other avenues shedding light on her overall look at the long term socioeconomic impact of large scale, non-resident commercial investment in the community. The ultimate goal is to create a map story of major commercial properties in the three communities on the West Shore with the largest populations: Colwood, Langford and View Royal. “It’s highly interesting,” Nussbaum said. “I’ve been talking to politicians, I’ve been talking to property developers, some property owners … and I’m getting interesting perspectives coming back.” WestShore Chamber of Commerce has around 600 members, and expects to reach 700 by the end of the year. The information from the survey will be used to see if there are any trends or patterns emerging in how the business community on the West Shore is moving forward. While local money generally has more value for a community, Spinner is avoiding the assumption that local necessarily equals better. Whether the money and management for developments and business is coming from within or

By the same token, bad business practices are bad business practices, regardless of where they originate from. “From a community engagement, shared values point of view, you’re more likely to make more progress with local owners,” Spin-

ner said. “But that doesn’t automatically mean that that’s true.” Spinner said it’s lucky the three biggest projects on the go on the West Shore (Capitol City Centre, Westhills and Royal Bay) are locally backed projects. He said in those cases it’s a good thing, especially considering Royal Bay was almost bought up by an outof-province landholding company

that would have likely sat on the property as an investment. a large landholder who’s really just taking dollars out of the West Shore,” Spinner said. “I’m glad we got the capital, I’m glad we were able to develop whatever it was, but if they’re not engaged … in the community and it’s just strictly dollars and cents, I’m not sure necessarily that’s in our best interest.” The report, which won’t be completed until the end of March, will come with some specific recommendations. The information will ultimately be used as a platform for the Chamber to use moving forward. One idea is to create something like a landlord of the year award to promote positive communityminded business practices. “It’s a phenomenal area,” said Nussbaum. “I’ve met a lot of really good people, and I’ve learned a lot of very interesting information. We’ll see how it all washes out.” The information will also be presented to the planning departments of West Shore municipalities to help them make decisions in regards to developments and other business issues. “It certainly will help our councillors and our planning staff have just that extra perspective on their particular town,” Spinner said. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Vision Matters Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Dr. Cameron McCrodan, Dr. Brent Morrison, Dr. Ann-Marie Stewart and Dr. Chris Snow

Eye and Vision Myths Advice, no matter which way you turn, it’s free for the asking. When it comes to health advice, sometimes it is difficult to determine the difference between right and wrong. Here’s a sampling of most common eye and vision myths: “Don’t wear your glasses so often, you need to exercise your eyes!” Wearing glasses does not weaken your eyes. The only thing that happens when you don’t wear them is that you don’t see as well. AND wearing glasses doesn’t mean you have “weak” eyes, either. “You’ll hurt your eyes if you read in the dark!” Too little light does not damage your sight anymore than too much (do not stare directly into a bright light or the sun, which may cause permanent damage). “Get back from the television! Sitting too close will damage your eyesight! There is no harm in sitting close to a television. However, if you or your child routinely find it necessary to sit close just to see, it’s probably a good idea to make an appointment for an eye exam to ensure your vision is up to snuff. “I need bifocals! I did too much reading and close work over the years.” Wrong, you cannot wear your eyes out by using them, and you certainly cannot preserve your vision by limiting your reading or close work. The need for bifocals or reading glasses is a natural part of the aging process. If you have doubts about any vision and eye advice, be sure to ask your Optometrist.

After more than 50 years as a board member, president, director, donor and mentor for the Boys & Girls Club Services of Victoria, Harman’s commitment to community is being recognized with the Leadership Victoria Lifetime Achievement award. “Bob is a great example of (someone) who wanted to get involved and got involved early as sort of a founding member in that organization,” said Leadership Victoria executive director Jack Shore. “(He helped) turn it into one of the biggest, best-run, dynamic non-profits there are.” The Saanich resident was chosen from a group of eight potential recipients by a panel of members from Leadership Victoria, the United Way, the Victoria Foundation, the University of Victoria and the Rotary Clubs of Greater Victoria, he accepts the award at a ceremony at the Fairmont Empress Hotel Feb. 25. “I am honoured to get the award, there are many people in this community who are equally deserving. I was feeling a little guilty, there are many, many people who have provided an awful lot of volunteer work,” Harman said of winning

the award. “(This) is too much. I wasn’t sure I deserved it.” Born and raised in Victoria, Harman first joined the BGC board in 1962. Now 78 years old, the retired lawyer is still a director for the non-profit organization, following the advice of his father who told him to focus on what is important and stay with one organization instead of spreading himself too thin. Despite his age and some health problems that have slowed him down a little, he hopes to get right back into the mix as soon as he is able. “You feel an obligation to do something in your community, I have had a good life.” he said. “I will be a part (of the club) as long as my health allows me to. I don’t intend on leaving and don’t think I will be kicked out.” The former two-time president of the club adds the LVLA award to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal awarded to him in the fall of 2012 and Shore believes there couldn’t have been a better choice. “He has been a long-time, significant impact person in terms of the Boys and Girls Club and a real role model for all the non-profit societies in terms of volunteers,” Shore said. “He is unsung because he doesn’t do it because (he) want to be sung about. (He does) it because he believes in it.”

While many are being presented the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubliee Medal, one View Royal resident is enjoying her second such honour. Karen Wylie was presented the award last fall by FMF Cape Breton commanding officer Cpt. Donald Smith. She received it at the same time as about 30 other people from the unit where she works as an administrative assistant. She stands out, however, as one who also received a royal honour 10 years ago when she

– Karen Wylie was presented with the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal. “I was overwhelmed, of course,” Wylie said. “I was surprised.” Both awards came in recognition of Wylie’s commitment to community service, specifically her volunteer work with the Juan de Fuca Navy League Cadets. As a life member, Wylie has worked with the cadets for more than 30 years, holding various positions with the league. Wylie got involved with the

organization when her daughter joined. She said she has been involved in numerous fundraising activities, including the campaign to find a permanent hall and parading ground. “Of course all parents help when their kid’s involved in an organization,” Wylie said. “When she finished … I stayed on. “You want to do more once you start on it, you don’t want to walk away from it.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Idle No More stokes the fire

The Idle No More movement continues to gather steam around Greater Victoria as various groups, including the students who rallied here last weekend, jump on board. But is all the drumming and chanting doing any good? A Canadian Press Harris-Decima poll completed earlier this month found that only four in 10 Canadians is sympathetic to the goals and aims of Idle No More. But the same poll found that fewer than four in 10 Canadians were even familiar with the goals and aims of the movement. That’s a big disconnect and a sign that supporters aren’t piquing the average citizen’s interest with demonstrations, sit-ins and hunger strikes. That doesn’t mean we don’t have plenty of work to do to resolve systemic problems in the relationship between First Nations and government. Getting key players on both sides to sit down and talk about those issues is a good start. Shawn Atleo, assembly of First Nations national chief, who met with Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Jan. 11, says his organization will pressure the feds to continue working toward improving that relationship. Atleo and Harper met a year ago in what the prime minister’s office called “a historic meeting.” In optimistic, yet vague fashion, the government entitled the meeting Strengthening Our Relationship – Unlocking Our Potential. No doubt, work has since been done to clarify agreed-upon goals around governance, access to education, community self-sufficiency and other areas. Idle No More emerged nonetheless, which makes one question whether Harper and company were paying lip service to First Nations last January. Despite the seeming disconnect with the majority of Canadians, the grassroots protest movement restoked the fire in First Nations and is slowly getting non-aboriginals to pay more attention to grassroots aboriginal issues. But progress won’t come through noisy demonstrations and hunger strikes. It’ll be achieved through First Nations leaders working together with government using a focused, unified, businesslike approach.

Why are appointed policyshapers and built-in critics gaining recognition as essential officers of government? Why can’t elected governing politicians do the whole lawmaking job, and journalists and lobbyists and opposing politicians do all the criticizing? Because election campaigns do not examine policy. Government control-freaks block access to knowledge. Auditors-general are canny, principled insiders empowered to ferret through the politicalbureaucratic maze. Elections are tournaments of slogans and putdowns. Each contender tries to play the fractions of the electorate like a pipe organ, offer clever sound-bites and strong body-language, and win trust. The campaign workers try to get supporters to the poll. Some candidates have well-organized plans, managerial talent and kindly popular rapport. Most candidates maintain a cluster of good intentions. But since the era when medieval kings summoned barons in “parliaments” to demand money and soldiers, politics has been a struggle between top dogs and everybody else. Doyle and successors will help people see where they stand. • G.E. Mortimore is a longtime columnist with the Goldstream News Gazette.

GOLDSTREAM NEWS GAZETTE - Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Election kicks off new season of ‘School Wars’ Like a bad reality show about a dysfunctional family, B.C. School Wars has lurched to life again for the 2013 election. Coming soon to billboards and buses across the province: staged pictures of sadfaced kids crammed into dirty classrooms by a heartless government. It doesn’t even matter which government. This ritual combat went on through Social Credit and NDP governments too. Tom Fletcher Premier Christy B.C. Views Clark opened the new season with her promised pitch to restructure bargaining. It suggested splitting up bargaining into traditional wage and benefit talks, and a separate table and fund for classroom size and support. Cast in her familiar role of the sullen, rebellious teenager, BCTF president Susan

Lambert staged a news conference to distort and mock the government’s offer. A 10-year deal if we give up bargaining wages and classroom conditions? “Ludicrous.” What’s ludicrous is her characterization of a formula to link teacher pay to nurses, post-secondary faculty and other government workers. Nurses are renowned for getting raises when no one else does, so this should be an opportunity for these powerful unions to co-ordinate. But the BCTF can’t get along with other unions any more than it can negotiate with any discernible competence. Lambert falsely claimed there was no consultation on the proposal. This reminded me how she low-balled the costs of her union’s demands by hundreds of millions during what passed for negotiations in last year’s strike season. Behind the scenes, the BCTF executive and the school district bargaining agent had just settled on a mutual costing model. What this means is the school districts, which have to make payroll and balance budgets, have convinced the BCTF to stop

misrepresenting costs. I’ll believe that when I see it. Before Education Minister Don McRae had even spoken, BCTF vice-president Glen Hansman was growling his reply on Twitter: “See you in court.” That message presumably also goes for premier-inwaiting Adrian Dix, unless he replaces the hated B.C. Liberals in May, then quickly kneels before the BCTF and extends the key to the provincial treasury. Two generations of British Columbians have been bullied by this bad drama, since Bill Vander Zalm decided an industrial union bargaining structure was just the ticket for public schools. Students are taught by example, if not by blatant propaganda in classrooms, that all problems are solved by demanding more money from the government. After this conditioning, older students are sometimes pressed into service as union pickets. There’s your Social Justice class, kids. Sorry about those sports teams and field trips, but we need those as bargaining chips to get more paid leave time.

To state the obvious, Clark and McRae staged this as a pre-election event to frame the issue. They knew their effort would be greeted as a declaration of war. The main reason the BCTF agreed to a contract extension with a wage freeze last year? It wasn’t the blindingly obvious fact that every other public sector union had already taken two zeroes. It was strictly tactics. The delay sets up the latest rematch of these old warriors in the spring election. The plan is to get the dreaded B.C. Liberals out and then start working over the weaker, more union-dependent NDP. That’s who caved in earlier and gave the BCTF broad control over staffing levels, the proverbial key to the treasury. Along with basic math and economics, a point the BCTF seems unable to grasp is that its strategy is self-defeating. Those sad kids are making more and more parents seek a better deal.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Readers respond: smart meters, genetically modified growing, roadway concerns Smart meters a ‘monumental expense’ Re: Smart meter deniers’ last stand (Opinion, Jan. 23) According to Tom Fletcher anyone that is opposed to the smart meter is either a crook who is stealing power or a tinfoil hat radical. It is much easier to accept every scheme our taxpayer owned and funded corporations want to ram down our throats, but what’s happening in our Crown corporations makes even the most apathetic of us turn into activists. Seems every move our corporations make is designed to extract more money from us rather than improve the product. This meter is a monumental expense at a time we can least afford it. It has been reported that the meters have half the lifespan of the existing meter. We have more pressing hydro issues to spend a billion dollars on. I just wish BC Hydro would quit wasting money on mindnumbing ads instructing us how to phone them and how the smart meter will eliminate the job of phoning them. John Wheatcroft Highlands

Genetically modified crops meet standards Re: Metchosin envisions GMO-free Island, (News Jan. 18) A recent article in the Goldstream News Gazette failed to provide readers with all views concerning genetically modified crops and their cultivation, and so I’d like to provide more information. GM crops are subject to Canada’s strict regulatory standards

which ensure that Canadians have access to one of the safest food supplies in the world. Extensive safety reviews are completed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Health Canada to ensure all products of plant biotechnology are safe for people, animals, plants and the environment. GM crops enjoy a remarkable safety record, having been cultivated for well over a decade in Canada with no environmental safety concerns. Millions of meals containing ingredients from these crops have been consumed with no reports of allergenicity or other ill effects. The reality is that humans have been altering the DNA of crops for hundreds of years using plant breeding methods to move genes from one species to another. Modern genetic modification has made it possible to speed up the process and do it more precisely. When it comes to Canadian farmers, they overwhelmingly choose to grow genetically improved varieties of corn, canola, soybeans and other crops due to the numerous

benefits they offer such as increased yields, improved pest control and environmental sustainability and the widespread cultivation of GM crops has not led to increased or excessive use of chemical weed controls, nor significant interference with farmers that choose to grow non-GM or organic crops. GM crops are not a safety concern thanks to rigorous regulatory standards and therefore do not need to be banned. Lorne Hepworth President, CropLife Canada (Ottawa)

Visitor hopes for more crossing opportunities As a frequent visitor to your lovely city, I enjoy walking your trails. Over the past years, I have noticed an increase in fastmoving traffic around Wishart and Latoria roads which makes it difficult for pedestrians to cross over to the entrance of Latoria Creek Park at Royal Bay.

reduce speed of the approaching vehicles. While most trail walkers with dogs keep them on a leash, a reminder to do so and pick up after their pets would serve as a reminder that the trails should be enjoyed by everyone. K. Anderson Cranbrook

Speed and speeding are different beasts Re: Lack of enforcement weakens speed zone idea (Letters, Jan. 25) While I respect Keith Sketchley’s point of view and I do not disagree with his perspective, I think the idea of reducing speed limits needs clarification. “Speed” and “speeding” are two different definitions. When we talk about speed, we mean the regulatory speed or the speed that most people can or will travel at. “Speeding” is an illegal behavior that some drivers engage in and as

Keith points out, should be dealt with through enforcement. It’s true that reducing speed limits will not eliminate speeding. The problem is this: 50 km/h is a default speed limit applied almost universally in many municipalities. Let me use Saanich as an example. If you look at a street map of Saanich, you will see that the vast majority of the road surface consists of residential side streets – not arterial roads like McKenzie and Blanshard. This is where the homes are, where the children play, where the pets and people spend time outside. People can legally drive at speeds that are unsafe for most of these streets. We need to establish an appropriate speed limit for residential areas so that the message is clear to us all. Dave Ferguson Community Advocates for Reduced Speed Victoria

Connecting kids with the natural environ-

ment is the goal of an expanding program at the University of Victoria’s Family Centre. Thanks to a part-

...because we live here.

“It’s funny how a newborn can change your perspective on everything, ...that’s why we have life insurance through Western Financial Group.”

nership with Island Savings, a financial donation to the Family Centre’s “Being With Nature” will help bring learning and exploration opportunities to children. “If you can get young children connecting with nature, as they become adults they will become the protectors of nature,” said Elizabeth Quong, program director at the Family Centre. “And they don’t need to be outside all the time. We bring nature items inside and let the kids be creative on their own.” Last Wednesday at the bustling Family Centre, located in Student Family Housing, children enjoyed painting rocks, driftwood and pinecones. Kelly Sterk, manager of the Island Savings Tuscany Village branch, sat at a small

table with a young family, helping add the artistic finishing touches to a painted piece of driftwood. “Island Savings and our staff believe families are the root of strong communities. We focus our giving and we focus our efforts on families,” he said. “Gordon Head, Mount Tolmie, the UVic area is such a diverse population of families, so it’s a great area for us to be able to contribute.” The Tuscany Village branch of Island Savings hosted its grand opening Saturday. The Family Centre has been in existence for more than 15 years, providing support services and resources to families of UVic students to create an greater sense of community. kslavin@saanich news.com

Ever wish you could turn back the clock and experience life as a child once more? Unless the fountain of youth springs up in Centennial Square, Greater Victorians will have to settle with a trip to The Arts Centre at Cedar Hill, where an exhibit of children’s art work showcases young perspectives on urban living. The Child in the City Project was not initially aimed at producing visual art, but when early childhood educators asked four- and five-yearolds for their take on their city, the results were expressed in hundreds of photographs, mapping, clay, painting, drawings, and more interactive projects involving puppets and modelling. Works collected from seven centres across Greater Victoria, as well as three short videos documenting the project, will be on display in the main gallery space at the centre until Feb. 3. “In the end we had this wide variety of materials and having come from children in such a visual way; it seemed like such a natural fit to exhibit that in the gallery,” said project co-ordina-

tor Gillian Petrini. The Child in the City Project – supported by PLAY Victoria, United Way Success By 6, Saanich and the Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria – had two core objectives: to hear what children have to say about their experience in the city and to inform the community of the findings with the intent of including the voice of children in future planning. “If we’re building child-friendly cities, we’re really building people-friendly cities,” Petrini said. “We’re creating planning and policies that support local children and their families.” One of the city’s most notorious architectural items sparked a contribution from Victoria participants, five-year-olds Jaydan and Piers. “Our project began as Piers took a blue piece of corrugated material to create a road,” said the duo’s early childhood educator Tanya Kuhn. “He bent the material to form a road. Jaydan noted that the road reminded him of the Blue Bridge, and the two boys created a city around it. “The children focused more on the people and activities in their city. We saw a sense of community and co-operation, and of course a familiar landmark that was visited often by the children and their family.” The Arts Centre is at 3220 Cedar Hill Rd. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Oak project teaches children stewardship Don Descoteau News staff

Grade 1 and 2 students clad in rubber boots, troop single file across blocked-off Fifth Street behind Victoria’s Quadra elementary. They gather in a semicircle underneath a grove of Garry oak trees and listen intently to Todd Carnahan describe how the camas bulbs he told them about in class should be planted, then covered with mulch. Carnahan, the land care co-ordinator for the Habitat Acquisition Trust, oversees the six and seven year

olds as they happily do their bit to restore this little corner of Garry oak meadow. A collection of native flowering shrubs will come the next day to complete the project. Spearheaded by the parent advisory council, the school-wide project to plant 313 bulbs – one for each student at Quadra – along with shrubs is part of a project the Trust calls the Green Spots Program. It began last fall with students spreading mulch and cardboard, in preparation for planting. The goal is to get children outside to learn about their environment, Carnahan says. “Nature deficit disorder is rampant these days,� he says. “If we lose kids after they’re seven or eight and don’t get them outside, they may not

develop that spark of interest or a love for nature.� Tracy Byrne, Quadra PAC president, grew up in Great Britain and remembers seeing green spaces she played in gradually disappear, replaced with developments. She helped drive a decision by the PAC to not invest in plastic and metal play equipment, but to put its money into natural spaces. “Todd came on board and gave us some focus,� Byrne says. “For the kids, it was really important to (tell) them that they’re sacrificing a

bit of a play space, but they’re also becoming stewards of that space.� Quadra principal Marilyn Campbell says projects such as this give the students a stronger connection to the greater community. She’s also a big fan of getting the kids outside. “The classroom does not stop at the four walls,� she says. “In a community where they don’t get out as much, everything we can do to encourage and enhance that is good.� editor@vicnews.com

Real estate agent Jackhammers into film Director’s debut features Pam Anderson, Jamie Kennedy and male stripping Natalie North News staff

A film started four years ago by a Victoria real estate agent is finally drawing to a close in the last days before its world premiere at the Victoria Film Festival. The festival guide pitches Jackhammer as “without a doubt, the most ambitious movie shot by Victorians” – an apt description considering its creator Mike Hanus began the project with zero directing experience and ended up with a feature-length film, featuring a Hollywood cast. “I had drive and desire,” said Hanus in a phone interview from Vancouver, as he put the finishing touches on the film. “I really wanted to make my own film, hit some film festivals and create

Frustrated with the lack of more substantial roles available at home, he began production of Jackhammer, which he wrote, stars in and directs.

“I definitely wear a few hats,” Hanus said of his auteur experience. Hanus solicited the help of a writing team to translate his original concept into a screenplay. Among the cast: Islandborn Pamela Anderson, comedian Jamie Kennedy, Mad TV’s Nicole Sullivan and Rob Wells of Trailer Park Boys fame. Jackhammer follows the story

of two brothers, one, an introverted aspiring theatre actor (Guy Christie) and the other, Jackhammer (Hanus), trained to perform on another kind of stage. When the thespian is blacklisted by the industry’s most notorious casting agent (Kennedy), his protein-pounding, spray-tanning, older brother Jackhammer steps in. Jackhammer also happens to be a male stripper. “It’s a roller-coaster ride of good times and uncomfortable situations,” he said. “I’m trying to create a project within the scope of the budget that could be a big success theatrically on an indie-level,” Hanus added, saying that it wouldn’t be the first time low-budget comedy struck it big, should Jackhammer join the ranks of Napoleon Dynamite and Clerks. Local supporters from equipment rental houses to restaurants across the city stepped up to help Hanus make the project as good as he possibly could, he said. The process of finding the key people to work on the film was incremental, with early connec-

I am now excited to partner up with Todd Mahovlich at Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty. I pride myself on my customer service, while paying close attention to my clients needs and making them feel comfortable and at ease every step of the way.

tions eventually leading to the star-speckled end product. Case in point: securing an editor from the Trailer Park Boys who got Rob Wells aboard. “It was a slow-building process, of working hard and reshooting and really taking it seriously,” Hanus said. “We have amazingly talented people who need to be showcased.” Among the variety of talents, Hanus said are a writing team able to craft jokes that still have him laughing even after dozens of viewings and local synth-revivalist Mike Glover. Glover, gaining popularity for Miami Nights 1984 provided the ‘80s-inspired soundtrack, in keeping with Jackhammer’s love for the neon era. After the hubbub of the film festival, Hanus will return to his day job in realty – a position he’s happy to continue alongside future film projects. The Victoria Film Festival runs Feb. 1 to 10, Jackhammer’s one screening is sold out.

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice

Vitamin C and Lysine powder help prevent heart attacks by W. Gifford-Jones M.D. Why is heart attack the number one killer in this country? Ninety-nine percent of doctors say it’s due to atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) and that cholesterol lowering drugs are the primary way to treat it. But I suggest cardiologists have closed minds and are ignoring facts that could save thousands of North Americans from coronary attack.

Years later Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner, is ignored for reporting that large amounts of vitamin C and lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twenty-five years ago Pauling reported that animals make vitamin C and humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during long sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived. Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Williams Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Wellington University in New Zealand, proved Pauling was right. Stebhens’ research showed that coronary arteries closest to the heart are under the greatest pressure. This causes collagen to fracture resulting in the formation of a blood clot and death. Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proved that vitamin C can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later additional pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries. So what has happened to these monumental findings? Bush, like Semmelweiss, has been ridiculed by cardiologists. One has to ask whether cardiologists, by ignoring his results, are condemning thousands of people to an early coronary heart attack.

doses of vitamin C plus lysine with breakfast and the evening meal, for several reasons. I knew that Dr. Graveline, a physician and NASA astronaut, had twice developed transient global amnesia from taking Lipitor. I was also aware that patients have died from CLDs. Others have developed kidney, liver and muscle complications. I also believed the research of Pauling and Stehbens irrefutable. Now, the work of Dr. Bush has convinced me my decision was prudent. But to take large doses of vitamin C and lysine requires swallowing many pills daily. It’s a tall order for those who dislike swallowing one pill. So for several years I’ve been trying to find a company that would manufacture a combination of vitamin C and lysine powder. Now Medi-C Plus is available at health food stores. Its sales will help support The GiffordJones Professorship in Pain Control and Palliative Care at the University of Toronto.

LOVE BIG SAVINGS?

Most of today’s, cardiologists are impervious to persuasion. They continue to believe that cholesterol-lowering drugs are the be-all-and-end-all to prevent heart attack. They’ve been brain-washed by millions of dollars worth of promotion by pharmaceutical companies. It reminds me of the saying that cautions “It’s not what you don’t know what gets you into trouble, it’s the things you know for sure that ain’t so!”

It’s time for cardiologists to have an open mind and stop ignoring this research. As for me – I bet my life on it!

History shows mankind is not kind to new ideas. In 1847 one maternity patient in six who entered the University Hospital in Vienna left in a coffin. Why? Because esteemed professors ridiculed Dr. Semmelweiss, a colleague, for showing that by simply washing hands after doing an autopsy, deaths were prevented.

Junior Bulldogs win two Belmont secondary basketball teams faced some challenging competition last week. The senior boys lost to Oak Bay – ranked sixth in B.C. – last Tuesday. A poor start had them facing an early 13-point deficit. Unfortunately, crawling to within one point was as close as they would come. Thursday the team escaped Spectrum with their sixth league win to improve to 6-2. Another slow start had them down 12 in the third quarter until Owen Vaags and Dan Massy took over, leading the way for a Belmont 18-2 run on route to a 77-70 victory. Braden Henson kept the guys alive early on. The Belmont junior girls added two wins last week. Tuesday, they fought back from an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter to defeat St. Michael’s University School 35-30. Isla Swanwick had a gritty performance hauling down 34 rebounds along with a team-leading 14 points, while Claire Joyce and Frelen Gorst played

tough defence down the stretch. Thursday Bulldogs defeated Spectrum 58-26 in a balanced team effort that saw

all 10 players score at least once. Lindsay Hargreaves, Hannah Allen had her top point total for the season with 18 points, while Swanwick

West Shore Poppy Fund Committee And the ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION Langford Branch No. 91 Wishes to express their BELATED gratitude and appreciation to Legion members, volunteers, citizens, businesses, schools, churches, Army, Sea and Air Cadets, the NLCC Admiral Falls Navy League, the Girl Guides Brownies, Pathfinders and Boy Scouts in the West Shore Community for their good work collecting donations and to all others who in any way contributed to the 2012 Poppy Campaign. With your support and generosity the Campaign raised $75,394.03. Donations are still trickling in. It is this generosity that enables the Legion to ensure that our veterans and their dependants are cared for and treated with the respect that they deserve. For this we are sincerely grateful. The moneys received during the 2012 Campaign will be used during months, October 2012 thru to September 2013, the Poppy Fund’s fiscal year. We cannot give you a thorough report for this period yet. So what did we do with your 2011 Campaign donations of $71,378.16, during the 2011/12 fiscal year: $25,000 for support to the Broadmead Care Foundation, Priory Hospital, the WesCom Medi-Lend Society, the West Shore Adult Day Care Centre, and the Cockrell House. $5,000 to the Veterans Transition Program. $6,000 donated to the Brock Fahrni Pavilion and George Derby Centre. $7,061.24 was spent on poppies, wreaths and other supplies, primarily for the 2011 campaign. Material prices increase regularly and are beyond our control. We do what we can to keep costs down by salvaging, repairing and reusing donation boxes and other items, rather than by buying replacements every year. $8,804.40 was used for emergency assistance. $5,492.30 annual assessment based on 15% of previous year balance to Royal Canadian Legion British Columbia/Yukon Command. $6,000 supported four local cadet organizations. $5,000 for bursaries to students pursuing programs in universities and colleges. $2972.40 was paid for Canada Post

SPORTS NEWS IN BRIEF Swimmers hit CIS standards at Canada West meet

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Victoria Cougar Keylen Opel keeps control of the pack after being checked by Nanaimo Buccaneer Quentin McShane during a game at Archie Browning Sports Centre. The Cougars won 7-4.

Captain on point Captain sets VIJHL modern day record Travis Paterson News staff

Rarely do the Victoria Cougars face a deficit like they did on Sunday when the Nanaimo Buccaneers took a 3-1 lead in the first period at Archie Browning Sports Centre. The result was a dominating second period effort from the top junior B team in the province, as the Cougars scored four goals in the middle frame, and seven straight in total, to win 7-4. It was the Cougars’ 40th win of the season (40-1-0-2) as the team now has five games left in the 48-game Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season. “Recently we’ve had a tough time with slow starts,” said captain Brody Coulter. “Yes our second period was good (Sunday) but we (also) have to make sure we’re ready in the first period and not playing from behind.” Despite some “slow starts” the Cougars haven’t showed any weakness as they continue to dominate. Key to their success all season has been the powerplay. It was the story in the second

period against Nanaimo, with three of the four tallies coming with the man advantage. The Bucs learned not to trade powerplays with the Cougars. Coulter, who quarterbacks the powerplay, picked up all three of his assists on the powerplay. He also scored a shorthanded goal in the second period that tied the game and kept the momentum in the Cougars’ favour. On Thursday Coulter broke the modern era VIJHL points record of 104, set in 2003-04 by Jason Jacques of the Campbell River Storm. Coulter now has 113 points, 37 goals and 76 assists, in 43 games and counting. It’s a screaming pace but he’s unlikely to catch the all-time leader, Len Meyer of the 1978-79 Fuller Lake Flyers, who had 144. Regardless, the achievement is remarkable. Coulter, 20, was passed up by junior A teams as a 17 year old and, though he plays as a regular call up to the Grizzlies, he is dedicated to the Cougars. His scoring is balanced throughout the league, having been held to zero points in just two games so far, Nanaimo on Sept. 13 and the Saanich Braves on Jan. 4. “I can’t say enough about (Coulter’s) accomplishment,” said Cougars coach

Mark Van Helvoirt. “As an individual, he deserves it. And he’s even an even more important part of this team as a leader on and off the ice and in the dressing room.” Fifty-nine of Coulter’s points were earned on the powerplay, 12 goals and 47 assists. “(Coulter’s) worked hard at the powerplay and continues to,” Van Helvoirt said. Becoming the most dynamic point man in the league didn’t come without its trials and tribulations, however. “I’ve had a few blips, tripped on the blue line a couple of times, and fell (skating backwards) on a couple of rushes, so there’s been a few short handed goals against me,” Coulter said. “It took getting used to backwards skating, which I hadn’t done in forever. I watched a lot of video and have done a lot of practice on the breakout and that first pass.” The Cougars host the Peninsula Panthers tomorrow (Jan. 31), 7 p.m. Around the VIJHL: The Braves dropped its fourth loss in a row on Friday, 2-1 to Comox Valley, and have lost seven of the last eight. sports@vicnews.com

The host UVic Vikes men’s and women’s teams finished fourth at the Canada West Swimming Championships at Saanich Commonwealth Place, Jan. 25 to 27. The Vikes opened the meet with a sweep of the men’s 1,500-metre freestyle on Friday as Alec Page, a 2012 Olympian, won gold with a new Canada West record of 15 minutes and 4.48 seconds. Vikes Eric Hedlin and Will Brothers won bronze. Page also finished second in the men’s 50m butterfly and helped the Vikes men’s 800m freestyle relay team to second. Later in the weekend Ian Mattock won silver in the men’s 400m individual medley. Allison Wood won silver in the women’s 200m freestyle, just ahead of Ella Dalling, who was fifth. Vikes Rachael Newman and Stephanie Horner swam to fourth and fifth, respectively, in the women’s 100m butterfly. The latter two are among 19 Vikes swimmers to qualify for the CIS championships in Calgary on Feb. 21 to 23, as reported on the Vikes website. The UBC Thunderbirds won the women’s team trophy and the Calgary Dino’s won the men’s team trophy.

Martinson wins second Island Race of season Victoria’s Geoff Martinson is two for two in the 2013 Frontrunners Island Race Series. The former Vikes track star set the overall course records at the Cobble Hill 10K on Sunday (Jan. 27) with a time of 30:46, beating Steve Osaduik’s 2008 time of 31:11. Martinson also won the Pioneer 8K two weeks ago, the first race of the series. “With no watch and no clocks on the course, it wasn’t until the last 100 metres when I could see the finish line clock that I knew the record was within reach,” Martinson said. A three-second gap separated the women’s winner, Catrin Jones (35:57), and second place Lucy Smith. Martinson (25-29) and Smith (45-49) set two of the five age-group records at the race, which had 532 finishers. The Cedar 12K on Feb. 10 is next in the Island series followed by the Hatley Castle 8K at Royal Roads University on Feb. 24.

Early bird deadline for TC10K Thursday (Jan. 31) is the early bird deadline for individuals and corporate teams to sign up for the TC10K for $35. On Friday the fees will jump to $40. School member prices will jump from $25 to $30.

Become a Psychiatric Nurse in your own community There is an urgent need for more Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPN), particularly outside the urban areas of the province. And with the workforce aging – the average age of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse in BC is 47 years – the number of retirees from the profession is exceeding the number of graduates. Entry-level earnings start at $30.79/hour to $40.42/hour. Train Locally – The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is accredited by the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC (CRPNBC). Government student loans, Employment & Labour Market Services (ELMS), band funding & other financing options available to qualified applicants.

Smiget the cat plays in catnip while Lesley Solunac holds Lovey, who fiercely dislikes Smiget, at her home in Saanich. Solunac is hoping to find a home for both cats. Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - GOLDSTREAM

Advocates encourage owners to tag pets Arnold Lim News staff

AN OLD TV CAN BE HARD TO GET RID OF.

WE’LL PICK UP YOUR OLD, ENERGY WASTING TV AND RECYCLE IT. FOR FREE. Let’s be smart with our power. For a limited time call 1-866-919-5865 and schedule your free pick-up with 1-800-GOT-JUNK? between February 4 – 15. powersmart.ca/pick-up

First 300 registrants are guaranteed pick up. Registrants after 300 are subject to availability. Victoria residents only. All TVs must be intact and placed outside the home (exact location to be determined upon registration). TVs with broken CRT tubes cannot be collected.

Lesley Solunac found Lovey licking birdseed off her front porch. The lost and skin-and-bones cat, then only two pounds, was parked underneath a bird feeder in front of Solunac’s home in the West Burnside Road area, lapping up whatever birds left behind. Four weeks later, the now four-pound tabby is still there – and very much in need of a permanent home. “We are just suckers I guess, both my husband and I,” Solunac said. “She was just bones. We kept her here instead of the SPCA because it is less stressful. We are (now) feeding her every few hours.” Over the years, Solunac and her husband Alex have taken in four dogs and two cats, all of whom somehow ended up on their front steps, badly in need of food and shelter. Four of them have found their original, or new homes, but the Saanich resident who works with the disabled said there are better ways to help find the owners of animals which end up on Greater Victoria’s streets. All cats, including indoor cats, need to have some kind of identification, on a collar or tagged with a tattoo. “I hope to have our two extra cats in wonderful ‘furever’ homes and I hope to raise awareness of tagging and IDing cats,” she said. “They should be tagged or licensed even if they (live) inside. I didn’t used to think we should, but now we do.” The SPCA and the Capital Regional District animal shelters have websites where people with lost animals can look through a photograph archive of found pets, but Solunac said tagging is an needed extra step that could potentially help pets stay healthy and reduce the suffering of lost animals. “I don’t want to be a finger wagger, but this is hard,” she said. “When I have been looking for months at these postings of all these people who have lost their cats, it is heartbreaking. If their cats had some kind of collar or identification they would probably be united. “ Putting identification on pets costs money, but it can provide peace of mind, Solunac said. Collars with identities, unique code tattoos and even microchips under the skin are options for pet owners. Pamela Saddler, who runs non-profits Victorialostpets.com for lost animals and Broken Promises Rescue Society for rescue animals, is asking owners to have protection for their pets in place. “Five per cent of animals are actually tagged, so most are untraceable,” Saddler said. “Inside cats still get out. It (may not) be traceable back to you ever. (An ID tag) is the only way for the animal to get back to its owner.” Saddler said she gets calls and emails every day about people finding lost or injured animals and at least five posts on her websites every day about missing cats. At worst, she says, it is for closure. If a deceased animal is found owners will at least know what has happened and aren’t left in the dark. “It is definitely emotional because it is an ongoing thing,” Saddler said. “It is $100 for life. It is for peace of mind.” See crd.bc.ca/animal/cat_id.htm for information on getting a free cat ID tag.

Q Blood Pressure Clinic Q Saturday, January 19 Q Pearkes Arena

Take The Pressure Down Free Blood Pressure Clinic Beacon Community Services, along with The Heart and Stroke Foundation were at the Pacific Cup Oldtimers Hockey Tournament on Jan. 19th at Pearkes Arena. Together they were raising blood pressure awareness by offering free blood pressure checks. High blood pressure is the number one risk factor for stroke and is a major factor for heart disease. It affects 20% of Canadians and 42% who have it, don’t know they have it Over time high blood pressure can damage blood vessel walls causing scarring that promotes the build-up of fatty plaque, which can narrow and eventually block arteries. It also strains the heart and eventually weakens it. Very high blood pressure can cause blood vessels in the brain to burst resulting in a stroke. With proper diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure, you can cut your risk of stroke by up to 40% and heart attack by up to 25%. High blood pressure often has no symptoms, so have yours checked at least once every two years by a healthcare professional. Eat a balanced diet, be physically active and smoke-free, and reduce your salt and alcohol intake to help lower your blood pressure. Maintain a healthy weight, even a modest reduction in weight, as little as 10%, can dramatically decrease your chances of having a stroke or heart attack. For more information visit: http://takethepressuredown.ca
