With fresh water streams on campus and a migratory bird sanctuary at its front door, Royal Roads University seems like the perfect location to test oil filters for storm drains. Officials at two universities and one environmental company agree and Tuesday the first of a series of combination filter/monitors Mike Ansley was installed in a storm drain on campus as a part of a pilot project. The filter not only stops oil from entering the drains, and eventually water systems, but it also incorporates new technology to monitor the filter and sound the proverbial alarms when oil is present. A storm drain by the boathouse, eight drains in the lower parking lot and a drain by the fish ladder on RRU’s campus will have the filters installed. Charla Huber/News staff

Armed with a camera and a computer, Metchosin artist Doug Gilbert transforms reality into a fantasy world. “It’s photo-based art,” he said. “Often there is more than one photograph collaged together.” He photographs models in his home studio and then often heads outdoors for more photos to incorporate into a piece. Once the photos are taken he manipulates them with Photoshop until the piece is revealed. “I take a lot of photos in Metchosin,” said the artist, citing the Galloping Goose Trail and areas around Pearson College as his favourite spots. He started this form of art about 12 years ago, when technology was not nearly as advanced. “I paid $1,000 for a three megapixel camera back then,” Gilbert said with a chuckle. He now shoots with a 22-megapixel camera. The more advanced camera allows him to offer larger print sizes. Before, if he wanted to make a large print he would shoot several images of a scene, then stitch them together on the computer. When he first began, he was snubbed for making high-end art on a digital camera using computer software, he said. Now, this combination of skills is getting more appreciation in the art community. “It’s still a new art form,” Gilbert said. “It’s completely up to the imagination.” For every piece he creates, he prints off a limited edition of five. “It’s so you don’t go to your friend’s house and find the same picture on their wall.” Gilbert and three other artists are putting together a digital art show for the Coast Collective gallery in May. They are currently seeking submissions from other artists working in the medium. For more information go to distinctlydigital.ca charla@goldstreamgazette.com

itting on a heating pad trimming Hattie, the long-haired cat, Sally Staples takes up her clippers and zips under the cat’s tail. “It’s a kitty Brazilian,” laughs the cat groomer during one of her house calls. “It’s a sanitary trim so you don’t get dingleberries and then the cat’s don’t track litter and poop in the bed.” When Staples arrived at the Colwood home, Hattie was scruffy and greasy, but after a little care and attention to detail the house cat was donning a lion cut with a mane and little puff of fur on her tail. “Cat’s are great, Charla Huber they are magical and Reporting sassy creatures who happen to come with great people,” Staples said.

Camosun College researchers Imtehaze Heerah, left, and Will Spaulding demonstrate the new oil filters being installed in Royal Roads University storm drains.

Pilot project to last a year Continued from Page A1

Camosun’s mechanical engineering technology department played the part of designing the system’s sensors. The two main people behind it, researchers Will Spaulding and Imtehaze Heerah, developed the oil-sensory technology from scratch, over the course of two years. They also devised a unique system to transmit the information the sensors collect. “We can tell if it’s debris or oil that’s causing the problem,” Spaulding said. “Either way you need maintenance, but one is a lot more important than the other.” A small computer monitors the sensors and transmits information via a wireless radio signal. A level switch will tell monitors if the drain is plugged. When a sensor is triggered it transmits data to a computer, and can be programmed to send text message or email alerts. The filter is made of a polymer substance (the exact composition is a trade secret) that is powdery when dry but turns into an impervious gel when it comes in contact with oil. Ian Muir, founder of Petro Barriers, invented the oil collection technology about 12 years ago. It was a happy accident he stumbled upon while trying to figure out ways to reuse plastic from diapers. “They blew a pipe. … Hydraulic oil was all over the bloody place,” said Muir. “They threw down some of this material and immediately it gelled and made a solid product.” RRU commerce graduate and now vice president of marketing and communications for Petro Barriers, Mike Ansley is one of the key figures behind the project. “It’s really exciting,” Ansley said. “It’s kind of the reason I went back. The alumni, the staff, the faculty, they all really do a good job of keeping in touch with you.” Units will also be installed at Camosun College and will continue to be tested and developed in a lab setting. The pilot project at RRU will run for the next year, after which Petro Barrier plans to incorporate the technology into its products. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Parents camp for spots

VOLUNTEER HELP WANTED

Charla Huber Reporting Wrapped in a blanket and tucked in tight to a lawn chair, Taemar Verbaarschot settles in to camp outcamps out at the Sooke School District office. Parents got their own nature experience with tents, sleeping bags, rain gear and pretzels while awaiting kindergarten registration. Verbaarschot hasn’t camped out for concert tickets and is often reluctant to stand in line, but it was worth it to get her son Sam, 4, enrolled in nature kindergarten at Sangster elementary school in Colwood. “He is happiest when he is in the forest, at a beach or by a river,” said the mother first in line. “This is going to be his first experience in formal education and I want it to be in an oldgrowth forest.” Parents began lining up at 4 a.m. Monday to guarantee a spot in the 22-student program. They made two lines: one for boys and one for girls. The class designated 10 spots for boys, 10 for girls and two for First Nations students. By late afternoon Monday, 12 parents were in line for boys and five parents with daughters waited. “We see the value with boys and outdoor play and boys tend to struggle in school,” speculated Kim Coy, fourth in line to get her son in the program. Coy is eager to have her son Maximus in the program also because the teacher is paired with an early childhood educator. “It brings the ratio down to 11 to one instead of 22 to one. It’s a far better ratio than you can find anywhere else in B.C.,” Coy said. Tara Anderson was 12th in line and thought she was early at 3:15 p.m. on Monday. When she heard a line was forming she waited for her son to finish preschool, and with no one to watch him, brought

Taemar Verbaarschot packed heavy for the campout she started at 4 a.m. Monday for the nature kindergarten registration beginningTuesday at 8 a.m. She was first in line to get her son in the program. 5-year-old Oscar to wait in line too. Candice Hall stood in line for son Ryland last year. From previous experience she knew it wouldn’t be the same time crunch to get her daughter Ava in the class this year. “Parents think their girls may not be good outside when it’s so wet and muddy. My daughter is excited to be in the program,” Hall said. District staff arrived at the office early Tuesday bearing coffee and baked goods for the 13 parents in the boys’ line and 10 in the girls’ that included four First Nations students’ parents. Roberta Kubik, assistant superintendent of SD 62, acknowledges the program has high interest for parents of boys, but added all of the girls’ seats were also quickly spoken for. “Boys tend to be more project based learners, but 10 girls to 13 boys is not a big difference,” Kubik said. The school board designates 10 spots for girls and 10 for boys to create a gender balance and two First Nations spots to reflect the demographic in the region. charla@goldstream gazette.com

OUR VIEW

B.C.’s Family Day isn’t free T

his weekend marks B.C.’s first Family Day statutory holiday, which for most people breaks that long three-month stretch between New Year’s Day and Easter. B.C. residents now enjoy 10 stat holidays (11 if your employer is nice enough to throw in Boxing Day), which ties us with Saskatchewan as the most generous province for the coveted long weekend. By contrast, Nova Scotians and Newfoundlanders only have five. While Greater Victorians enjoy recounting their youth by listening to Trooper in the Inner Harbour on Monday, or take advantage of the many activities offered at recreation centres across the region, people should remember not everybody can afford an extra day off. When Premier Christy Clark announced the creation of Family Day in October 2011, she expected that by now a better economy would balance out the extra costs to businesses. But many small retailers and companies are struggling as the economy remains flat at best. They are paying out more due to a higher minimum wage, and all are now contemplating the cost and hassle of returning to the GST/PST system. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business estimates a small business with five employees will shell out about $1,135 for Family Day and it will cost small and medium sized businesses $42 million in lost productivity. Municipal and provincial governments will also shell out more for essential service employees and the hundreds of thousands of people on the public payroll. This holiday can be seen as rather blatant pandering to the electorate by the the B.C. Liberals, or an attempt to give hard-working B.C.ers a break – perhaps it’s a bit of both. And while the majority of us will enjoy the Monday off work, it’s important to acknowledge the many small business owners in our community who will see it as nothing but an added burden.

LETTERS Questions remain on wireless effects, but evidence growing Re: No escape from radio frequencies (Edward Hill column, Feb. 1) In your opinion, “anti-wi-fi and anti-smart meter people” are “grossly exaggerating” the ill effects from microwave radiation, insinuating people are either misinformed or irrational in their concerns. I can assure you this is far from the truth. Concerns are based upon a plethora of independent studies from many international research institutions, including the military, going back several

decades. The assertion that vulnerable children are placed at high risk and must be protected from this radiation is reiterated around the world by many credible health experts. You will have to look further than mainstream media for this information, however, for obvious reasons. Questions undeniably remain, but to state that all is fine, in the face of growing evidence that it is not, fails to provide critical information about this important public health challenge.

We need to promote reasonable measures to reduce exposure to wireless radiation for everyone, particularly children. Preference should be given to wired Internet connections in schools for safety where students spend countless hours in close proximity to many transmitting devices. Many technology specialists agree wired is superior in many ways to wireless that is notoriously slow, unreliable and unsecure. The International Agency for Research on Cancer reclassified

all sources of radio frequency radiation as a class 2B carcinogen for good reason. One has to remember that IARC monographs are considered as ‘gold standard’ in evaluation of carcinogenicity of physical and chemical agents. There must be sufficient scientific reason or IARC would not put its reputation behind such claim. It is also important to note WorkSafeBC occupational health and safety guidelines stipulate, under section 5.57, that any 2B carcinogen must be replaced with a safer alternative that “reduces

the risk to workers.” How is this important fact overlooked by employers and school officials? History is replete with failures to control highly profitable carcinogenic substances, ranging from tobacco to asbestos, until proof of harm became irrefutable. We can ill afford to go through that same course with wireless technologies, given the long latency involved before serious disease manifests. Tammy Jeske Langford

Readers respond: Island rail project, Family Day, B.C. taxation options Rail funding not enough to make a difference Re: Island rail project gains momentum (News, Jan. 25) So the Island Corridor Foundation will receive $1.2 million from the CRD, $5.4 million from the five regional districts and $15 million from the federal and provincial governments to “… hopefully restore VIA rail service and initiate commuter rail service to Victoria.” The intent is great, but what will this money accomplish? Victoria is spending nearly $100 million to replace a small bridge. I understand there are many bridges on the E&N Railway that are older and more poorly maintained than the Blue Bridge. We spent more than $1 million refurbishing the Kinsol Trestle to support walkers and cyclists, not heavy, high-speed rail equipment. The E&N has nearly 100 kilometres of track that needs to be totally replaced. Walk it yourself and see if you believe the existing line would be safe with minor tie replacements. The E&N has no rolling stock and no staff or operating budget. Are our elected representatives making purely political spending decisions, or will they produce a better transportation system? If they do open the door to improved transit, what is the future cost of following up on

these initial expenditures? If we are we going to pledge our future taxes and those of our children to an everescalating investment which has no return until fully completed, we should look at total costs and revenues, not just spread a little here and there with the hope of ‘catching the big one’ some day. A rail system may be the answer to some of Victoria’s transportation problems, but at what cost per passenger? Seems to me that a little advanced planning by our leaders would stop this cash dribble before it starts. That money would serve a much better purpose if it was redirected to the homeless or drug rehabilitation. Let’s stop pretending these piddly sums will have any impact on local transit. These minor budget allocations will be absorbed by consultant fees and some minor maintenance. Best to fund it adequately or not fund it all all. This is a cheap, vote-buying effort and should be exposed as such. Jim Knock Esquimalt

Family Day should also celebrate progress Hurrah for Family Day! On Monday we in B.C. have been given the day off

to celebrate Family Day, an opportunity to share family time and fun. The provincial government’s website offers family events across the province. What a great idea to recognize the worth and contribution families make to our society by giving them an extended weekend to spend together. Families are also said to be a top priority for Prime Minister Stephen Harper. It’s funny, though, how governments think. Reported estimates for B.C. show that child poverty costs the province between $8 billion and $9 billion annually while a comprehensive program to reduce such poverty would cost annually between $3 billion and $4 billion. If families really are a priority and governments really are fiscally prudent, as they say, what’s going on here? Not only are our kids our most precious and valuable asset, they also offer the best possible return on public investment towards ensuring a strong and healthy nation. Families can only do their part if governments are willing to create a public environment that safeguards our kids’ well-being and nurtures their growth and development. We should be able to celebrate Family Day for the progress we

make in securing a vibrant future for our children. Then I’m sure we would enjoy the day, whatever activity we happen to participate in. Sonya Ignatieff Saanich

Benefactors of growth can afford to pay more Re: Here comes the tax, man (Our View, Feb. 1) The editorial said, “British Columbians now have to decide what they value more: services or disposable income – or find a balance between the two.” The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives report referred to, “Progressive Tax Options for B.C. – Reform Ideas for Raising New Revenues and Enhancing Fairness,” actually said that we could have more disposable income and more social services. The report made a plea for progressive taxation. It’s fair for the benefactors of B.C.’s recent economic growth to give a little more to the common pool, since their taxes are lower than the rest of Canada. This would raise needed program revenue, reduce income inequality and increase disposable income. If the top six per cent of B.C. residents, those with incomes over $103,000, paid a fair tax share, we would raise $930 million. That would build 2,000

social housing units annually, pay increased welfare to cover food and housing, support families by properly funding ministry programs, restore school class sizes to 2007 levels and increase post-secondary education funding by 10 per cent. The Centre also said for the price of a cup of coffee each a day, we’d raise $2.3 billion for substantial investment in a number of areas. It did sound like a few people might have to forgo that extra yacht, Maserati or vacation mansion, including me. Larry Wartel Victoria

New chair brings positive attitude

Kyle Wells Reporting

West Shore Parks and Recreation is starting 2013 on a strong note with a new chair, an approved budget and a board better at working together. So says new chair, Colwood Coun. Rob Martin, who looks forward to projects moving ahead in 2013 and is bringing a positive approach to the

often at-odds board. Martin sees the board getting past its previous differences and moving forward. This year’s budget, for instance, was passed without issue by all of the owners of the society. That has not always been the case. “There has been differences of opinion when it comes to the owner’s

group,” Martin said. “Where we’re at right now is that we’re listening to each other now and we’re respecting those points of view.” Metchosin Mayor John Ranns agrees the board is functioning far better than it used to, but still believes there are problems. He said the split on the board is still evi-

denced by the fact only representatives from Langford and Colwood voted in favour of Martin as chair, while View Royal, Metchosin and Highlands representatives supported View Royal councillor Heidi Rast. With Langford now building an aquatic centre in partnership with the YMCA, Ranns believes it will be time for both Langford and the board to take a new look at the relationship. “I think things are heading in the right direction,” said Ranns, “but there’s definitely going to have to be an examination of the whole direction, with Langford doing what they’re doing. It’s just not fair to them otherwise.” Langford councillor and WSPR board member Lanny Seaton said there is still work to be down at the board level before any true advances can be made. He said changes in governance is still essential to getting any future projects accomplished. “When they get that

New West Shore Parks and Recreation Society chair, Colwood councillor Rob Martin, says the board is getting along like never before. sorted out then things would run a little bit smoother,” Seaton said. “It’s going along fine, everybody is voting in favour, but are we going to get anything else down there?” He would like to see a weighted vote for Langford and the other larger municipalities, which are putting in the lion’s share of the funding, over the smaller municipalities.

A study on the governance of the society is ongoing and the deadline for decisions was extended to the end of the year. WSPR administrator Linda Barnes said executive discussions are stemming from the study and decisions around the governance structure will be made within the year. kwells@goldstream gazette.com

YMCA inks Langford deal Kyle Wells News staff

Langford residents can look forward to a dip and a workout in their own backyard. YMCA-YWCA of Greater Victoria expects to open its full-size aquatic centre and fitness facility near City Centre Park in 2015. City council unanimously approved the plan Monday, with the support of an enthusiastic audience, said councillor and parks and recreation committee chair Lanny Seaton. “They were all excited, everybody was clapping,” Seaton said. “I’ve never seen such a positive meeting in all the years I’ve been on council.” YMCA of Greater Victoria CEO Jennie Edgecombe said the project has been in the works for a couple of years now, with the YMCA interested in providing services Langford has been asking for. “We see it as a growing community with a lot of young families, which is in essence a lot of the work that we do,” Edgecombe said. In terms of rates, Langford residents will enjoy a 10 per cent reduction on monthly passes and a 20 per cent reduction on drop-in fees. Free swims will also be open to Langford residents on stat holidays. Westhills Land CorporaLanny Seaton tion will construct the facility and the YMCA will lease the building, starting with a 25-year contract. Construction is expected to begin this year, with the facility opening in 2015. The facility will also include a daycare centre, hot tubs, sauna, a gymnasium, a wave pool and an outdoor play area. Langford will pay about $750,000 into the deal annually. Part of that money will come from funds made available after the pool at Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre is paid off in 2014. The net cost to taxpayers is expected to be about $17 annually for the average home. Langford is also leasing an additional 4,000

square feet in the building for an additional annual cost of $100,000. The city is in talks with the Greater Victoria Public Library to bring another branch to the area. That plan has not been approved yet. Seaton said having the facility will not impact Langford’s involvements with West Shore Parks and Recreation, with which Seaton serves as a board member. “Langford is big enough to do (its) own recreation now, compared to what we were,” Seaton said. “But we’re not anticipating moving out of Juan de Fuca (Recreation Centre). But we’d also like some other things to happen too.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Memories of China

ARTS LISTINGS

In her first book, Dancing in the Heart off the Dragon – A Memoir of China, Ramona McKean takes the reader into the heart of China as she provides a true account of the events leading up to her near-death experience in China and her miraculous return to Canada. A Canadian who’d been living and working in a big city in Northern China, Ramona took a holiday in the south where she experienced countryside hospitality before meeting with the front seat horror of a head-on collision. She’d been wearing no seat belt and amazingly did not go through the windshield nor did she sustain any brain injury. After the accident and before her return to Canada, she experienced unprecedented personal care from Chinese locals. In Dancing in the Heart of the Dragon, Ramona McKean provides a sensitive and loving bridge of unique understanding for Westerners curious about the real China with its everyday real people. She shares how the love and spiritual truths she experienced in China help her in her journey back to health. Join McKean at the The Centre for Inspired Living, 380 Cook St., on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 12:30 p.m. for a special book launch. llavin@vicnews.com

Who’s clip-clopping across my bridge?

IN BRIEF

The grass really is greener on the other side, but a hideous troll has taken up residence under the bridge, and the promised land is forever unattainable – if you are a goat born on the wrong side of the craggy chasm. Gruff is a rolicking musical for two goats and a troll, written by acclaimed children’s author Judd Palmer and starring Izad Etemadi, Jana Morrison and David MacPherson. See Gruff and four original shows by Kaleidoscope, Suddenly Dance, Urban Arts, & Puente Theatre until Feb. 11 at Berwick House Theatre.

New club makes a splash at UVic Travis Paterson News staff

There’s a new water polo club in town. The Vancouver Island Water Polo Association is based out of the University of Victoria’s McKinnon pool and is the second club of its kind in Greater Victoria. Colette Baty is one of the original five parents who started the club, now in its second year. Baty and the other parents all had kids at the Saanich Waterpolo School at Saanich Commonwealth Place. Baty says the experience at Saanich Waterpolo was a positive one, but adds that she saw there was room, and a need, for another club in Greater Victoria. “(The Vancouver Island Water

Polo Association) started as a girls club only, but over the last year grew into both genders and various ages,” Baty said. “We just want kids to reach their personal goals. If it’s just recreational, that’s great, if they want to play competitively, that’s great too.” The original team was the girls 15-and-under VI Sirens and a team of younger girls. The organization now has dozens of players aged 12 to 19. Members can play three times a week, Sunday afternoons, and Tuesday and Thursday nights, and be of any skill level. UVic has a non-varsity water polo club which some of the VI members join on Saturdays. Getting regular pool space for the new club was a full time job

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Teens Ligia Brolo, left, Jemma Eason, Nicole Smith and PeggyJean Allin are part of the Vancouver Island Water Polo Association water polo team, based at the McKinnon pool at UVic. for about two weeks, but UVic came through. “It’s a tricky thing, it wasn’t impossible but it did take some work,” Baty said. “Some kids have played before and want to stay

with the sport recreationally, others are there because they want to try it out, and some are competitive.” The majority of the new club is made up of players from Victoria,

Esquimalt, Saanich and the Peninsula, she said. Despite its cachet as an Olympic sport, there isn’t a water polo league for youths in Victoria. Mostly, the players train and enter tournaments. “Water polo is not as set as soccer or hockey. We did have two teams (co-ed under 16 and 18) play in the Lower Mainland Water Polo League this past fall, but essentially there’s no season for Victoria players.” The U16 team won silver and the U18 team finished fourth in the mainland league’s end of the season tournament. Last year, the Sirens girls team went to nationals in Winnipeg and is hoping to do so again at Quebec City this year. The club runs September to May and youths can still join.

Victoria hosts Island figure skating championships this weekend Arnold Lim News staff

Ice sports don’t need body checks to be entertaining. The Vancouver Island Regional Skating Championships takes to the ice of the Archie Browning Sports Centre in Esquimalt this weekend where many of the Island’s top figure skaters hit the ice for the right to be called the Island’s best. It’s the first time the Racquet Club of Victoria has hosted the Island regionals.

“We are going to see the best of the best on the Island,” said Malcolm Rohon, who skates with the Raquet Club. “Good singles skaters, amazing jumps – and the dance teams that are going to be really fun to watch.” The 23-year-old skater and coach has donned the skates since age seven and competed nationally and internationally as an ice dancer. He says the combination of athleticism and artistry of figure skating is second to none. “I want to show how dynamic the sport

is, how artistic it is,” Rohon said. “Personally, I hope to impress with the height in my jumps.” More than 280 competitors will take to the ice Feb. 8-10 in different skating events, from singles and pairs free skates, to ice dance and elements where competitors from five to 45 show off their hard work and dedication. “In our sport we try to make things look easy, but when we make it look easy, people don’t know how much work it is and how much practice it is to make a jump,”

Up to 1,190 kms per tank of gas! Award-earning, head turning and a little rubber burning, the 2013 Golf TDI is fully capable of handling whatever life throws at it. And with up to 1,190 kms per tank, the 2013 Golf is both practical and pleasurable. With available sport leather seating and sport suspension, the Golf doesn’t just get you there, it also takes you away.

Rohon said. “It takes hundreds, if not thousands of times before they have landed it.” “The main thing we are trying to do is to get more people to watch and support the kids. The more people there are, the more energy there is, and that is good for (them),” said Deena Beacom, the Racquet Club director of skating and a participant. “It is exhilarating. It will be fun for anyone who comes.” Competition starts 8 a.m. daily and entry is by donation. For more information check out skatinginbc.com.

New Family Day evokes mixed emotions Megan Cole News staff

Family Day means sleeping in, an extra day with the family and taking in special festivities, but while many will be enjoying the new holiday, others may be faced with some painful emotions. Robert Gifford, professor of psychology and environmental studies at the University of Victoria, recently â&#x20AC;&#x153;rantedâ&#x20AC;? to his class about some of his Family Day concerns from a psychological perspective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think a lot of people are going to be happy to break the long time between Christmas and Easter,â&#x20AC;? he said. But due to the choice of the word

family, the emotions around the day may vary depending on the individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you happen to live in a classic nuclear family, or close to your parents or grandchildren, it seems great to spend the day together. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a postcard holiday,â&#x20AC;? said Gifford. The word family may be uncomfortable for those who live far away from their families, have a broken family or are estranged from their loved ones. According to Gifford, the vision of happy families celebrating and enjoying the new holiday may leave those without, cringing slightly at the false or inappropriate promise inadvertently created. Although Gifford is concerned with

The new holiday is intended to provide a break for businesses and employees, but also to reinforce the importance of family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By calling it Family Day we will treasure and value the family. Whatever that is in everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structure, people will spend time together with their loved ones,â&#x20AC;? said Chong. The provincial government also hopes the new holiday will provide an economic boost at a slow time of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talked to people who said

fee House 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Bingo at Jacksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Place. â&#x20AC;˘ Monday the festivities at City Centre Park in Langford start with pancakes at 8:30 a.m. There some families will celebrate on two wheels with a West Shore Motocross free learn to ride event or enjoy an afternoon family skate and other activities at Eagle Ridge Community Centre. Also Monday, partake in a free family skate at Bear Mountain Arena 1 p.m. to 2:30. From 2 to 4 p.m. enjoy freebies at the Bear Mountain driving range.

they were looking forward to it and planning to do a staycation,â&#x20AC;? said Chong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of going away, they are going to stay in town with their family and visit local tourist attractions, recreational activities or the special events planned. There will be money put back into the economy.â&#x20AC;? Some B.C. workers who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be enjoying the day off are federal public sector employees. According to the Public Service Alliance of Canada, their collective agreements provide for 11 designated paid holidays, including a day in the opinion of the employer to be a provincial or civic holiday. Though the Canadian Taxpayers Federation doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a formal position on Family Day, B.C. director Jordan Bateman said they oppose the $1.5 million

spent to promote the holiday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That takes it from being a holiday and puts it back in the realm of being a political issue and a vehicle paid for by the tax payer to promote the premier and her agenda,â&#x20AC;? he said. Bateman isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convinced there is a need for the new holiday, but he understands it was part of the premierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s platform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From my point of view if you have a holiday, let the private sector and other organizations do their thing. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see us plowing grants into Easter Sunday or Christmas Day,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we all know how to enjoy a holiday. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a problem. I also donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we need the government telling us how to enjoy time with our families.â&#x20AC;? mcole@oakbaynews.com
