Stress, not self-defence led to shooting judge rules Peter W. Rusland

Supporters including Susanne Sarioglu, right, rallied at Duncan city square on Thursday, Feb. 14, for Cowichan Rising, part of a worldwide awareness campaign called One Billion Rising aimed at drawing attention to the issue of violence against women.

motional. Empowering. Evoking. Engaging. These are just some of the words used to describe Cowichan’s series of events based on the international V-Day phenomenon. “The energy was just as we expected,” organizer of the city square Feb. 14 event Nika Stafford said. “It brought the intention to the gathering and it really started things out on an encouraging and empowering note.” The gathering began at the Matraea Centre and saw 150-or so folks march to city square

where a Àash mob of song and dance broke out. Several folks also spoke, including Stafford, Jen Holden, Lynn Weaver, Heidi Mendenhall and Grant Waldman. The Àash-mob was a highlight for Stafford. “That part was really fun and it turned out well,” she said of the co-ordinated dance communities all over the world took part in. “We danced another three songs after that too and we all thought ‘We should do this more often. We should really start dancing at city square on our lunch breaks.’” Instead of one group leading the charge promoting this year’s V-Day events, all powered by the goal of ending violence against women and girls — the V stands for victory, valentine and vagina — groups came together to form

the celebrations, all staged under the umbrella label Cowichan Rises. Along with the city square event, Cowichan Women Against Violence hosted its annual art show and photography contest Feb. 16 before the Cowichan Theatre staged Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monolgues later that evening. “It was an amazing event,” Cowichan Theatre’s Kirsten Schrader said of the Monologues. more on page 6

ear-induced stress, not self defence, was key in RCMP Const. David Pompeo’s shooting of Bill Gillespie near Chemainus on Sept. 18, 2009, Judge Josiah Wood explains in his reasons for ¿nding Pompeo guilty Thursday of aggravated assault. Duncan court judge Wood issued his 83-page summary for judgement Friday. The extent to which Pompeo’s perceptions that dark night in a driveway were “distorted by fear-induced stress is also evident from the fact (Pompeo) was oblivious to what transpired between Gillespie and Const. (David) Birchett (Pompeo’s police partner).” Const. David Pompeo At issue during testimony was Pompeo’s belief he shot in self defence as he thought Gillespie, who was later deemed unarmed, was about to pull a gun from his pocket. That belief sparked fear in Pompeo whose pistol, and that of Birchett, were drawn when Gillespie, and passenger Dale Brewer, were stopped and got out of their Saturn sedan. Had Pompeo realized what was unfolding, and recognized Gillespie eventually followed Birchett’s order to get on the ground, “Const. Pompeo’s threat assessment ought to have moderated to the point where he would at least have been able to wait to see if Gillespie’s left hand actually went into his pocket before (Pompeo) decided to pull the trigger,” Wood writes. But Wood explains Pompeo’s ability to accurately perceive an actual threat by Gillespie — namely Pompeo’s concern Gillespie was reaching for a gun when stepping from the Saturn — was affected, prompting Pompeo’s “inability to see anything other than threat cues from that point on — and the extent to which his growing fear provoked a stress that adversely affected both his vision, and his ability to hear.” more on page 6

Accused physiotherapist seeks legal aid while awaiting date for trial A local physiotherapist facing 23 sexualassault charges appeared in Duncan Supreme Court Monday looking for legal aid, but had his funding application put off until later in the week. Court staff explained Campbell Crichton’s court date this week depended on judge availability from Victoria. A date for a Supreme

Court trial is yet to be determined. Crichton, in his 50s, was initially charged in March 2011 with five counts of sexual assault for alleged offences that occurred while practicing at Cowichan Physiotherapy. Police said those alleged assaults involved five different female clients between 1996 and June 2009.

The allegations involve various forms of inappropriate touching during physiotherapy treatments, police have stated. At the time of Crichton’s arrest in spring 2011, the RCMP said they believed there were other victims whom they urged to come forward. Court staff indicated Feb. 15 Crichton’s charges had risen to 23.

“It was a near sold-out house and several art pieces sold from the Art of Healing exhibition.” She couldn’t have been more proud of the cast who took part reading Ensler’s script, especially this year’s newcomers. She also cheered husband-and-wife theatre coaches, Keith Digby and Cynthia Pronick, who stepped up at the last minute to ease some of the performer’s stage jitters. “There were a couple of performers who were quite nervous and not feeling brave and not quite ready to perform,” Schrader explained. “Keith said something that really hit home for them. He said something to the effect, that live performance is an amazing thing, your adrenals just kick right in and your nerves propel you forward and you can really do an amazing job on stage.” “They really offered so much Andrew Leong/¿le experience and wisdom,” she said of the husband and wife team. After months of repairs that left it suspended 10 to 12 feet above the ground, work began to return the Red Balloon building in downtown Duncan to its foundation Tuesday morning.

Notice of Exclusion Application Regarding Land in the Agricultural Land Reserve The Corporation of the District of North Cowichan, P.O. Box 278, Duncan, B.C. V9L 3X4, intends on making an application pursuant to Section 30(1) of the Agricultural Land Commission Act, to exclude from the Agricultural Land Reserve the following property which is legally described as: Part of Lot 3, Section 19, Range 6, Quamichan Plan 39079, and is shown as “Subject Property,” outlined in bold and cross-hatched on the map below.

Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well you’re not alone. As you’ve probably seen on Oprah or read in women’s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra. Here’s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in.

Chapman is coming to DUNCAN ON THURSDAY FEB. 28TH & FRIDAY MAR. 1ST to outfit you with the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-on-one basis, explaining the benefits of good bras and measuring their bodies properly.

Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. It’s likely that you’ll fit somewhere between those sizes. She offers these questions for women to ask themselves: • Do you have a drawer full of bras but none that fit comfortably? • Does your bust line “bounce” when you walk while wearing your “everyday” bra? • Do you overflow the cup of your bra? • Do your bra straps slip off your shoulders or dig into your shoulders leaving red and painful marks? • Does your bra ride up in the back because you tighten the straps to give you added support? • Have you ever begun an exercise class only to drop out because your breasts ached from lack of support while jumping or running? If you answer yes to any of these you are in need of a new bra, and a custom one could be the way to go.

The North Cowichan/Duncan detachment of¿cers basically faced the same situation when handling Gillespie and Brewer, Wood explains. Both of¿cers immediately escalated through to the ¿nal Incident ManagementIntervention Model (danger) response option by drawing their ¿rearms almost immediately when leaving their pickup truck, explains Wood. “The ¿nal decision for both was the same; namely whether to ¿re their weapon. “Pompeo had in excess of 30 seconds in which to reach that decision,” Wood writes. That half-minute, Wood explains, saw Gillespie do little except twice put his left hand into his left jacket pocket “from which it emerged on each occasion without a weapon.” Summarizing, Judge Wood found failure by Pompeo to follow his use-of-force training; that his experience with armed suspects had little relevance to the night’s circumstances, except use of caution; and that Pompeo failed and/or lost the ability to accurately perceive critical aspects of the events unfolding. Despite the fast pace, explains Wood, Pompeo had enough time to make an accurate threat assessment. And Pompeo had no background knowledge Gillespie had a conviction for a violent offence, such as robbery associated with a ¿rearm, Wood notes.

Pompeo’s working status still needs clariÄcation as police review situation

Judge Josiah Wood ruled the actions of Bill Gillespie (shown approaching Duncan court Thursday) did not constitute enough of a threat to justify being shot. Still, Pompeo “had a grossly exaggerated utmost care in judgement before deciding to perception” of long and how far Gillespie — use lethal force. who seemed threatening and unable follow Wood dismisses Pompeo’s belief he was commands to hit the ground — advanced about to be attacked by Gillespie — who still toward Pompeo, says Wood, noting both carries Pompeo’s 9-mm slug in his upper cops faced the same possible threat. body. Birchett testi¿ed Brewer was also non“I am satis¿ed the Crown has established, beyond a reasonable doubt (Pompeo’s) compliant and threatening, but he gave Brewer more time to follow several orders to belief he was facing death, or grievous bodily harm, was not based on reasonable get on the ground. grounds,” he concludes. Ultimately, Judge Wood rules it’s critical March 12 is when a date is to be ¿xed for police of¿cers maintain suf¿cient composure to accurately assess threats, and must use the Pompeo’s sentencing.

Const. David Pompeo’s working status with the Nanaimo RCMP detachment remains unclear following his conviction Thursday for aggravated assault in the shooting of Bill Gillespie. The incident occurred in September 2009 and Pompeo has been working for two years in operationally-restricted duties in an administrative capacity, said Nanaimo RCMP Supt. Norm McPhail. McPhail, the Nanaimo detachment commanding officer, said he would have to review Pompeo’s conviction to see how it affects his duty status as the case goes forward for sentencing. “As a result of that, I have a request out for the transcripts of that case,’’ he said. McPhail couldn’t be reached for clarification Tuesday and a call to the B.C. RCMP Communication Services Media Line was not returned by the News Leader Pictorial’s deadline. Cpl. Jon Stuart of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment where Pompeo formerly worked did not know either how the ruling would affect the officer’s present status. McPhail also wanted to find out how the judge’s decision would affect policing in general. “It’s something that impacts policing, definitely,’’ he said. “It’s a finding that involves one of our police officers so what can I learn from that? What information is in there that the RCMP can be educated by? “Police officers are in many ways no different from the public. They come from the public. Police officers are given special powers and as a result of those special powers, they’re accountable for those powers.’’ Also still unanswered are the questions of who paid for Pompeo’s defence, and, if it was the taxpayer, how much was spent. Pompeo is not in custody, Crown counsel Brad Tomlin said Friday.

Minor hockey coach’s ‘disgraceful’ conduct leads to report being Äled Kerry Park Park:: Young officials the target of wrath

T

he actions of Juan de Fuca peewee hockey team coaches are under scrutiny following a playoff game at Kerry Park Arena. Rob Webb, who happens to be the Shawnigan Lake RCMP Sgt. but was there in a civilian capacity as a game supervisor, ¿led a lengthy report with Sharon Cairns of the Vancouver Island Hockey Association regarding the conduct of the Juan de Fuca coaches. “Throughout the game in which Kerry Park led all the way through, the Juan de Fuca coach who appeared to be the head coach showed his displeasure at calls or non-calls by throwing his arms up and swatting his palms forward as if to say ‘go away or come on,’’’ wrote Webb. “The refs throughout approached Juan de Fuca’s bench on more than one occasion and spoke directly with one of the coaches who runs one of the doors. Early in the game, the of¿cials spoke with (the head coach) and on more than one occasion he had his right hand with his digit ¿nger pointing in the ref’s face.’’ Craig Shaw was there as an assistant coach with the Victoria Racquet Club Novice Blue team waiting to play the next game. “What I saw was two of the coaches from the Juan de Fuca team — one in particular who was ejected and then another took over — swearing profusely at the ref or refs,’’ he pointed out. “There were some teenagers in the crowd. I saw the coach gesture in an aggressive manner to the teenagers to see him in the hallway. A Kerry Park coach started yelling at the Juan de Fuca coach as well. From this point, I was concentrating on shielding our seven- and eight-year-olds from the incident.’’

Lack of respect for ofÄcials was at issue durning a recent Kerry Park minor hockey game. Webb pointed out there were some upset players and coaches after Kerry Park scored the winning goal on a four-on-three power play in overtime and the refs and linesmen did their best to separate the teams. “The head coach continued to yell at the of¿cials immediately after,’’ Webb reported. “He then went with his players and shook hands. He then remained on the ice and continued to yell at the two of¿cials while the two 14-year-old linesmen remained between him and the refs. He had his right hand up pointing as well at the refs.’’ Webb saw the coach get closer to the of¿cials as they slowly backed up. He was prepared to go on the ice at that point when the coach ¿nally went off. “I felt that (since) his anger was directed at the two of¿cials, the Kerry Park coaches and players remained on the ice and his players were off that nothing further would occur,’’ Webb added. “I then observed a commotion on

RENOVATION WASTE... CONTRACTOR WASTE... SPRING CLEANING... OLD FURNITURE... CONCRETE AND DRYWALL...

the stairs as (the coach) exited the ice surface and hurried over. I arrived 20 seconds later and cooler heads had prevailed.’’ Webb pointed out he remained outside the of¿cials’ door to ensure they were brought in safely. The two young linesmen were visibly shaken, he observed, but he commended them for their mature handling of the situation. “The prolonged actions of (the coach) were a disgrace and an embarrassment to hockey at any level,’’ Webb concluded. It is not clear, what, if any further action can or will be taken. The Vancouver Island Hockey Association had not responded to NLP inquiries by press time. Just last week a hockey father in Winnipeg was banned from arenas for the remainder of the season for a verbal tirade and threats against another parent whose son was injured after a hard check. The whole incident was caught on tape and posted on YouTube.

ainter E.J. Hughes’ friends and family walked down memory lane Friday after Duncan’s late artistic icon had a street named after him. Station Street’s west end became E.J. Hughes Place — the ¿rst street decorated by council’s new $33,000 way-¿nding sign revamp. “I know Ed is so happy to see E.J. Hughes Place, which is unmistakably Ed,” said Hughes’ long-time friend and agent, Pat Salmon. She noted how Hughes always remarked about other street names, including Victoria’s Fern Street, which reminded him of his beloved wife, Fern. Hughes, who died at age 93 in 2007, would have turned 100 on Feb. 17. The Order of Canada and B.C. recipient

still has a few relatives, including niece June Simpson who visited Totem Town from West Vancouver. “This is wonderful,” she said of the street naming. “I’m so happy his memory is being kept this way,” said Simpson, after publicworks staffer Al Scholz erected the sign — made by Mark’s Sign Shop — fronting Government Street. A second Hughes Place sign sits at the Somenos Street intersection. Town crier Ben Buss, and Janet Martinez of downtown’s E.J. Hughes Gallery, also cheered the occasion. “Ed always talked about himself in the third person,” Simpson said of her modest uncle, “so he’d say ‘This (sign) is good for Hughes’ work.’” Hughes other relatives included sisters Irma and Zoe, and brother Gareth. He also has a niece named Virginia, and a nephew named Andy.

Judge simply said the public expects better Gillespie shooting: Verdict down to professional standards

F

or some observers, the trial of RCMP Const. David Pompeo was about recognizing how a cop can be trapped by circumstances that are too often inevitable in the course of a dif¿cult job. For others, it was about accountability for the shooting of an unarmed man, about making sure the men and women with badges are not above the law they are supposed to uphold. But for Judge Josiah Wood, the case tied to the driveway shooting of Bill Gillespie was about something else — it was about the high professional standards we set for our police force and making sure we hold our of¿cers to them. Judge rules Wood, in no uncertain terms, said pocops need to licing is the big leagues — the men and wearing the badge have to make be able to step women decisions about life and death; they are past their fear trained to make the right decisions and they are expected to act accordingly. In professional hockey, there is something called an American Hockey League goal — a play that can often end up in the net at the minor league level, but isn’t supposed to work in the NHL. Any NHL goalie who lets more than a couple past him will ¿nd his stay in the big league very short. One could consider the AHL goal as a way of marking the line between the best and the rest. Judge Wood’s ruling spells out a similar line for our police. In his world, a trained, professional RCMP of¿cer is supposed to be able to maintain his composure and his powers of observation even in extremely stressful situations. It is part of the expectation that comes with the job. And when Gillespie reacted that 2009 night in a way that alarmed Pompeo, Wood ruled Pompeo should have been able to put that fear aside and respond only to the actual threat —or lack thereof — Gillespie posed. Wood’s verdict was this big league situation demanded a big league response and Pompeo fell on the wrong side of that line.

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like Since that fateful moment a few years ago when a city snowplow bumped the Red Balloon building downtown, the building has been the biggest question mark in downtown Duncan. So, yesterday morning, it was good to see the structure settling back on to its foundation. Construction may take until next fall to complete, but it’s good to see progress being made.

Time to shift national policy to a green economy Robert Douglas

n years past, the relationship between many of our labour unions and environmental groups was often tense, in some cases erupting into confrontations. Many of us remember the War of the Woods from 20 years ago, when forestry workers and environmental activists clashed over clear-cutting and logging in B.C.’s forests. Most of these workers were represented by the International Woodworkers of America, long a strong voice for working people in Cowichan. But times have changed. In 2008, the United Steelworkers teamed up with Environmental Defence to form Blue Green Canada, an alliance advocating for a nation-wide shift away from oil and other fossil fuels to what they call a green economy. The United Steelworkers, only a few years back absorbed what was left of the old IWA. During the past ¿ve years, Blue Green

Canada has added muscle, bringing aboard several important environmental organizations as well as the Communications, Energy and Paper Workers Union of Canada — representing more than 110,000 workers and one of the largest unions in Canada. Both parties see the possibility of signi¿cant gains by working together. Unions ¿gure new investments in renewable energy, energy ef¿ciency and public transit will create thousands of decent-paying jobs. Environmental groups see expanding the clean energy sectors and reducing our oil dependence as a more sustainable form of economic development. What’s interesting about Blue Green Canada is that it challenges the widely held belief that we have to choose between a strong economy and a healthy environment. In fact, the labour and environmental leaders behind this alliance argue shifting much of our investment away from the fossil fuel industries to clean energy sectors would create far more

We will get you the information eventually, but it has not exactly been easy getting answers from the RCMP these past few days about the status of Const. David Pompeo. We know he has been working desk duty in Nanaimo. But thus far several inquiries have yielded no feedback on who has been paying for his defence, or on how his conviction affects his job status now, and in the future.

jobs for working people — most of them high-skilled and highpaying. The federal government provides tax and royalty-related subsidies to the oil and gas industry in the tune of $1.36 billion per year. But what if that $1.3 billion in subsidies was shifted to more sustainable industries, such as manufacturing windmills and solar panels, retro¿tting buildings, assembling energy ef¿cient automobiles and constructing new mass transit systems? According to a well-researched study recently released by Blue Green Canada, such a move would create six to eight times more jobs. That would mean 18,000 to 20,000 new jobs in clean energy sectors compared to the 2,300 jobs that federal subsidies are now generating in the oil and gas industries. “It’s possible to build an economic system that provides people with good and ful¿lling work all the while respecting Mother Earth,” argues CEP

national president Dave Coles, a former Crofton mill worker and one of the most prominent labour voices in Blue Green Canada. “If we don’t seek that balance there may be no good jobs for our great grandchildren.” Let’s hope we ¿nd that balance. Our growing dependence on oil and other fossil fuels is taking a big toll, both on the environment and on other sectors of the economy — including forestry and manufacturing. It’s time we made the shift to a green economy, one based on developing our resources in a sustainable manner and creating more meaningful employment. The proposals put forward by Blue Green Canada are a good start. Let’s get on with it.

Can’t we rally to save another little piece of paradise?

Reconciliation starts with simple friendship

Dear editor Re: Maeve Maguire’s Feb. 6 column “Walking side-by-side a step toward reconciliation.” There will unfortunately never be any reconciliation unless there are no more racial comments, which will never happen. We are a proud race. Many of us carry issues passed onto us by various groups, agencies, governments and such. But when it comes to the bottom line, we just want to be treated like anyone else. My three sons played many sports over the years with East Indians, whites and others in soccer, hockey, baseball, football, rugby and on and on. All they wanted was friends nothing else. They not only played sports with them, my two older sons coached sports in the valley. My youngest son was student vice-president of Cowichan High, and he was a T-Bird too. They continue to have these friends today, even though they are spread around the world. Anything can be accomplished by association with us. We don’t bite but may be suspicious for awhile.

or families thinking of adoption, not only is forming networks and being informed ideal, it’s a must, says Cowichan’s Sherri Cleugh. If anyone knows a thing or too about adoption, it’s her. In total, she has seven children — three biological kids ages 13 to 18, and four others, ranging now from ages 14 to 30. “If you’re thinking about adoption, you have to reach out to other people who’ve adopted and you have to form that network,” Cleugh, 44, explained. Cleugh and husband Dave began their journey into adoption in the mid-’90s when they attended a seminar on the subject by the Ministries of Children and Families. Sherri was 26 at the time, and pregnant with son Daelen. Inspired by the seminar, they almost immediately began fostering children, a process

After a process of many years, they have adopted three children through Tribes. Tribes, meanwhile, adopted them into their culture, with a special ceremony and steady invitations to local First Nations events and celebrations. Gilbert, 18, Chelsea, 16, and Kayla, 14, all siblings adopted through Cowichan Tribes, attend Daughters/Sons of Tradition classes, as well as many Tribes’ events. Cleugh explained culture is key in adopting a child with First Nations background. “We let them learn it and we teach them as much as we can,” she said.

Parents are asked to consider things like a prospective child’s age, cultural background and/or disabilities. They are also given a clear picture of the responsibility they are taking on. This phase acts as what Gilbert calls a “funnel,” and “one that’s wide at the end. There are people that get into the education process and decide, ‘Nope, this isn’t for me,’” Gilbert said. But there are folks whoo ¿nish and are even more motivated than they were before. fore. For them, next up is a home study.

And that’s where the wait begins too. “Depending on age or special needs, it can take a week or sometimes a couple years,” Gilbert said. Parents are provided with a

small amount of information about the child, and if they’d like to go forward they’re provided with a large package of information, sometimes a box full of documents. Besides her work through the adoption association as an adoption support co-ordinator, Gilbert has a wealth of knowledge based on her own experience. experie She’s adopted 112 children, 11 through thr the ministry and one through an agency. agenc “We didn’t set out ou to just kind adopt that many, it ju of happened,” she said. meanwhile, Sherri and Dave, meanwh have been married now for 21 years. Their family is certainly certain busy in the community, whether whe it’s with church, cadets, candy striping or the Cowichan Therapeutic Riding Association. Being active helps keeps them sane, Cleugh said, and family life is incredibly ful¿lling. “It’s really all about time management too,” she said. “So far, we’re incredibly blessed and extremely grateful. The best thing for these kids is to be adopted, and to have a forever home.” For more information on adoption, go to bcadoption.com.

A Family in Focus Meet: the Joneses Leah is a stay-at-home mom and Josh runs his own web development company. They have two daughters, Scarlett is five and Vera is two. What’s your strategy for balancing work and family? We make sure to always sit down and have dinner together and from the time Josh gets home from his office to the time the kids are in bed we spend time as a family. Weekends are spent doing at least one activity together as well. Tell us about a big parenting challenge you faced and how you solved it? Balancing the needs of our oldest daughter along with the needs of a newborn when our youngest was born. To be honest I don’t know that we “solved” it but we got through it and our girls love each other very much, there is no residual bitterness from Scarlett. She’s always loved her baby sister and never displayed any jealousy towards Vera. So yeah, that has definitely been the most challenging part of being a parent to date. What’s your go-to activity for keeping the kids occupied? Drawing, colouring, reading books, episodes of My Little Pony. What’s the most laugh-out-loud thing your kid ever said or did? There are so many that they’ve all combined into one great big hilarious memory. I wish I could pick one out and get specific but you’ll just have to trust me that there has been a lot of laughter in our house thanks to our kids. Name a local resource every parent needs to know about. Whales Tales, it’s our favourite place to go. It’s free, there are loads of toys and activities to do and my kids love it. What do you and/or your partner do to make time for yourself? If one of us needs some time alone, it is a given we will get it. We are very understanding if the other person needs an hour or so to have a bath, go for a run, or whatever it is they need to regain some sanity. Sadly, going out together on a date is extremely rare for us but we always make sure to grab a bottle of wine and watch a movie together on Saturday nights. The best advice another parent ever gave you? Throw away the books (parenting books that is) and trust your instincts.

Guests will enjoy the surroundings of the newly renovated Travelodge Duncan. Organizers are working on all the details to make another fantastic Black Tie event - including ďŹ lling tables with exciting auction items.

Economic Development Cowichan founded and continues to sponsor the Green Award recognizing a business that implements environmentally sustainable practices; demonstrates leadership in lessening impact on the environment by reducing, solving or avoiding environmental issues. The Awards originated to recognize exceptional Customer Service; this category often receives the most nominations. This year Cardino Shoes is the Award Sponsor for Customer Service.

We will also present the Volunteer of the Year Award and the Art in Business Award at the banquet on April 13.

Chamber Launches New Logo We are excited to roll out a new visual identity for the Duncan-Chamber of Commerce. The new logo, developed by Chamber Members Patricia MacGregor of Zuk Design and Rosa Bennett of Rosa Bennett Graphic Design, in consultation with the Chamber’s Branding Committee, evokes the colour and vibrancy of DuncanCowichan, against the silhouetted majesty of Mount Prevost. The new identity will be front and centre on the Chamber’s new website arriving later this spring. The site will offer a signiďŹ cantly enhanced web presence for all our members and a mobile version for anytime information about the Chamber and its members.

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 19

Chamber Week is February 18 – 23 The perfect time to Connect, Engage, Achieve. Join the Chamber. I guarantee it will be time well spent. CT, Member Chamber Week brings awareness to the important work that Chambers do to stimulate local economies, promote their community, and engage in multi-level advocacy that benefits the entire province. Chambers of Commerce support businesses with benefit programs, members-only pricing, services and education. Locally funded and directed, Chambers directly support and stimulate local economies, and contribute to vibrant communities throughout British Columbia. Membership During Chamber Week, the Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce is highlighting our membership drive with a “test drive the Chamber” rate - a special six-month membership. Like to kick the tires before you buy?

There are also savings on insurance, hotel accommodation, online training, office products, gasoline and more. Members attend Chamber events at reduced member pricing or even for free.

Pratz Bookkeeping and Tax

Wedderspoon Organic

Member since 2010 Offices in Duncan and Lake Cowichan #104-2700 Beverly Street Duncan, BC V9L 5C7 Duncan: 250-597-2114 Lake Cowichan: 1-800-895-7187 www.pratzbookkeeping.com Corrine Pratz initially founded Pratz Bookkeeping and Tax as a home based business in 2008. Steady growth meant the business overflowed the confines of her home office and last fall she opened a second office in Duncan. “There was growth and it was slow. But when I moved into the Duncan office, growth sky-rocketed. We’re just so excited”. Corrine offers all aspects of bookkeeping services, and says the tax side of the business makes for a varied clientele, “It’s a very broad market ranging from individual returns, right up to corporate tax returns for small and medium sized businesses.” Fully accredited for tax preparation, the firm specializes in back taxes – getting people current with the Canada Revenue Agency. Last fall Corrine, and her husband and associate Sean Pratz, took advantage of the provincial Micro Business Training Program offered through the BC Chamber. Corrine worked with a business coach for 12 weeks, primarily over the phone. The training covered all aspects of business management including staffing, marketing, networking and more. “I was surprised by the sheer volume of material we covered in 12 weeks,” she says. Sean studies were online –web design, maintenance and marketing. A Chamber member for almost three years, Corrine credits the organization with helping her connect with prospects, access training & education, and to grow her business. “I just feel that the Chamber really works hard for its members – to give us the advantages we need for our businesses.” A passionate and thoughtful owner, Corrine sees bookkeeping and tax as a people business. “It’s exciting to help someone grow their business - that’s what I’m passionate about. That’s what gets me up in the morning – how much I enjoy the clients. They’re awesome.”

Member since 2006 www.wedderspoon.ca 1.888.256.6603 A tour of Wedderspoon Organic and the thirteen-acre organic farm is easily confused with a lazy walk in the country – but in fact, this is the head office of a company that ships 35 products to 27 countries worldwide. Conceived and developed during a Business Futures Program in 2005, Wedderspoon exceeded projections at every turn – actual sales beat the first business plan by 300%. “We look at the market and develop products no one else is making. Our challenge is to create new products consistent with our current line,” says Sébastien Martin, CEO and Co-Founder. All Wedderspoon products meet the company’s strict ethical and organic standards, as do supply chain elements. Organic manuka was originally sourced from New Zealand, but demand exceeded supply. Now Wedderspoon is developing sources in Greece and Chile. They educate beekeepers in production standards, insisting hives are managed organically and yield the highest manuka pollen count available on the market today. Recently Wedderspoon added the facial cream “Queen of the Hive” to their product line. In keeping with the company’s standards, the cream combines premium natural ingredients including bee venom. Bee venom was made famous by Camilla Parker Bowles and other royals who praise its anti-wrinkle benefits. Sold worldwide, Wedderspoon’s “Queen of the Hive” is stocked at the London pharmacy that supplies British royals and the Queen herself. A little bit of Cowichan may soon be touching royal cheeks. With offices in the US, Canada, New Zealand and Britain, the company’s roots are here. Long-time Chamber member, Sébastien worked to launch the Chamber’s first Gourmet Gala. Through their membership, he and Catherine forged relationships with clients, suppliers and others in the community. Wedderspoon has been honoured with many awards including 2013 Vancouver Island Business Manufacturer of the Year. They hold a 2006 Black Tie Award and were finalists again in 2011. You’ll see Wedderspoon Organic on this year’s list of nominees.

BC’s Micro Business Training Program provides up to $1500 in training for business owners, members or non-members. The application deadline is March 31, 2013. See www.bcmicrobusiness.com for details.

Groupon contacted Steeples’ Darren Cole to say his restaurant was voted number-one by Groupon’s customers in satisfaction for 2012. • And still more congratulations to Wedderspoon Organic (manufacturer of the year), Chemainus Theatre Festival (non-pro¿t business of the year) and Lush Eco Lawns (green business of the year) — all of who were honoured in the Vancouver Island Business Excellence Awards, Jan. 24 in Nanaimo. • Sixty-one-year-old Peter Spohn (perhaps better known as Grandfather Heron) tells us he has decided to ride his bike wherever possible. He’d like to see more community promotion and infrastructure to encourage bike riding for ¿tness and a lower carbon footprint. “Let’s get busy doing our small part for a better future and have fun and ¿tness along the way,” he writes. • Add two more community stalwarts to the list of local Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal winners.

So far, Dwight students have raised more than $5,500 to their goal of $8,500. With only four-and-a-half months of school left, Dwight is making every effort possible to make this happen. On Friday, Dwight is pleased to host a Robert Gillies and Callie Moore bene¿t concert on campus. “Robert Gillies is no stranger to the Cowichan Valley as he lived here volunteering his time at Maxwell School a number of years ago,” Bater tells us. The show is set for Feb. 22 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Admission is by donation. Call 778-9773898 for more information.

Chance encounter Änds Ward with Gold & Shadow

ARTISTS

A fateful meeting between two musicians set them on the road to a Vancouver Island tour that stops in Duncan tomorrow. The elements have aligned for Vancouver singersongwriter David Ward and Nanaimo-based band Gold & Shadow to team up on a four-date Vancouver Island tour in pursuit of great musical chemistry. “I heard David Ward a year ago when my friend

passed on his EP trilogy, The Arrival,” Dane Letourneau, student of environmental chemistry and leader of the art-rock band Gold & Shadow said in a media release. “It was kind of mind blowing to me to have someone from Nanaimo come to my show in Calgary having heard about me through someone from Vancouver,” said Ward, who has been compared to

artists as wide-ranging as Radiohead and Michael Jackson. The pair caught up after the show and bonded over their similar musical tastes and influences like Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. They play together Feb. 21 at the Duncan Garage, starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 advance, $15 at the door.

A

rtist Trisha Klus — possibly Cowichan’s only goat-skin vellum calligrapher — and the Escape Artists invite folks on A Nature Walk through Mill Bay’s Loft Gallery. Klus is among seven multi-media artists showing Mother Nature-inspired work through April 12 at The Loft. The Cobble Hill artist — a former captain, and one of the Canadian military’s ¿rst women aircrew members — is sharing several illuminated pieces of her delicately detailed calligraphy on vellum. “It’s goat-skin vellum,” said the paper-andlettering artist, and hand-bound book binder who buys smooth vellum skin for about $50 a square foot from England. “Vellum’s hard to come by. It has its own personality. It was used in medieval manuscripts and books back in about the 1500s. “Now it’s used for special documents and ¿ne art.”

Including Klus’ Millennium Collection Envelopes illustrating people and places from 68 Canadian stamps issued in 2000 by the post of¿ce as the Millennium Collection. “The love of letters and the written word are revealed in my work where the text often becomes part of the image for its own shape and beauty,” she said, noting texture and structure are key. “My goal is to create artwork and artist’s books that tell a story in a graphic and meaningful way.” Klus clicked with calligraphy in 1995, “then I was introduced to the book arts.” “I’ve done printmaking, collage, letterpress printing — now I like to combine them in my projects.” Commissions span precise penmanship for wedding certi¿cates, endearing quotes and poems, plus custom wedding albums, explained Klus, a founding Warmland Calligraphers’ member. “I use nibs and brushes, and I even have some quills.” Her books and artworks have been published in Somerset Studio, Handcraft Illustrated, and Bound & Lettered. She’s also been in shows with the Fairbank Calligraphy Society, Cowichan’s Printmakers’ Only Group, Canadian Book Binders

and Book Artists Guild Guild, Warmland Callig Calligraphers, The Escape Artists, and The Sooke Fine Arts Show. Klus’ ¿rst solo show occurred in 2011. Her illuminated manuscripts see 23-carat gold used in the rare art form. “With book arts, there aren’t many people doing it, so I’m pretty well self-taught, though I’ve taken a few workshops.” Meanwhile, calligraphy’s undergone something of a renaissance, as illustrated during International Calligraphers’ Conferences — one hosted by the Warmland Calligraphers in recent years. “It’s an art form that’s been revived. People are rediscovering a hand-crafted art, and hand-bound books is one of them.” Other Escape Artists unlocking work include Shirley Lawrence Bellows (watercolour, acrylic, pastel, coloured pencil), Betty Cavin (watercolour), Sandy Knowles (acrylics), Joan Lee (watercolour), Amie Roman (original prints), plus Heather Stevens (acrylics, photography).

DEATHS

DEATHS

DYCK, Marie 1918-2013 It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to a great woman, friend, mother, wife, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and sister. She left us on January 29th after a long, full life. Marie grew up with her younger brother Roy in the small town of Borden Saskatchewan. She spent many of her happiest childhood hours with her cousins on her Uncle Arnold’s farm. As a young woman Marie went off to study at the University of Saskatchewan and there she met and married her husband, Bill. Together they moved to Toronto and their three sons, William, Robert and Gordon were born between 1940 and 1947. Tragically, Bill died in 1949. In 1950 Marie married for the second time (Peter), and the young family moved to Calgary and eventually to Vancouver. Their three daughters, Ingrid, Karen & Annemarie were born between 1950 and 1958. Following a dream to live next to the ocean, Peter and Marie left Vancouver for Saltspring Island in 1961. Peter built the family home on the Saltspring waterfront; this was to become a long-time home for the Dyck family, and a much-loved destination for children and grandchildren for many years to come. Marie enjoyed nothing more than sitting on the deck admiring the view or swimming in the ocean. With a love of nature’s beauty, music, food and art, her deck was always full of bright owers, her house was full of music and her table was rich with delicious food. When her youngest child entered school, Marie started a fulďŹ lling career as a teacher. It was truly her calling. An avid learner herself, she was blessed with a creative curiosity and found teachable moments everywhere. Marie and Peter taught in many communities in BC – but every holiday the family would return to their ocean home. Another of Marie’s great loves was travel. Known as “The Roadrunnerâ€? to her family, she loved history and art and adventure. If it meant walking around the city or travelling half way around the world, her feet never stopped moving. When Marie retired from teaching, she and Peter moved to Victoria. She audited University classes, tutored students in English and taught ESL at the Multicultural Association. During these years, Marie made many lasting friendships with new Canadians (and enjoyed many international meals!) . Peter died in 1994. Keenly affected by his loss, Marie joined a walking group that was to provide many years of friendship, and continued to travel and learn. She particularly loved to walk through the ower gardens in Beacon Hill Park with a friend, and stop for a meal at the James Bay Inn. Although the last year of Marie’s life was difďŹ cult, she never stopped loving or being proud of her children and grandchildren, never stopped enjoying music and owers or going for drives along the ocean. She never stopped planning for that “teachable momentâ€?. Although this brilliant woman is gone, she leaves a legacy of love behind for us all, and an example of what it means to truly “embrace lifeâ€?. And we, her lucky family, send her off with all our love and gratitude.

alley skaters put their talents to the test at the Vancouver Island regional ¿gure skating championships in Victoria. Duncan Skating Club sent 18 members to the competition, comprising 20 events. Baylee Hopwo and Caitlyn Luckhurst were entered in two events each. Hopwo placed ¿fth in introductory interpretive and fourth in Group 1 of Starskate 4 for 13+ while Luckhurst came ¿rst in pre-introductory interpretive and claimed silver for Starskate 3B Group 4. Duncan results in Starskate 1 included: Rylee Smith (bronze, Group 1); Grace Haugen and Paiton Douglas (bronze, Group 2); Camryn Visscher and DelRae Olson (bronze, Group 3); Ryley MacDonald (silver) and Drew Kuipers (bronze) in Group 4; Sonja McCormack (bronze, Group 5); and Cassie Bowdery (bronze, Group 6). In Star 3A, Peyton Kong picked up silver in Group 1; Sophia Hodgins and Hannah Kushner both earned silver in Group 2; and Haley Dragicevich claimed silver in Group 3. Stephanie Hleck received bronze in Group 3 of Star 3B and Brancato joined Luckhurst with silver in Group 4. Courtney Vanderstap was fourth in Group 2 of Star 4 for 13+.

amps, clinics and a new Ă€ag league will kick off the football season in the valley. It’s going to be an exciting time with all the special events coming up, concedes Cowichan Valley Football Association president Jeff McDonald. The spring camp March 9 and 10 — open to both girls and boys whether registered with the club or not — will feature an appearance by Adam Bighill of the B.C. Lions and members of the Vancouver Island Raiders, one of the most successful junior franchises of all time in Canada with three Canadian championships under their belt. There will be both a tackle and non-tackle skills camp. Drills and scrimmages will be incorporated into the two days. “There will be NCCP trained coaches to show everyone the proper techniques and

fundamentals — emphasis on fun — of our great game,’’ noted McDonald. The appearance of Bighill, a Canadian Football League all-star and the No. 2 tackler in the league. at the camp is a coup for the Cowichan association. Spring registration is open and teams are beginning to take shape. Go to www. cowichanfootball.com for information. Meanwhile, a record 16 players from last year’s Cowichan Midget and Bantam Bulldogs will attend an all-star game in Vancouver in April and six of those are going to the Senior Bowl. Players going to the StarBowl and Senior Bowl are: Darrin Aitchison, Cory Lewis, Niko Ceska, Eric Maslen, Adam Marchetti and Mackey Singh. Midgets going to the all-star game include: Blake Torok-Both, Liam PalcuJohnston, Dusean LeBlanc, Brock Gowanlock and Brendan Gowanlock. All-star players from the Bantam team are: Kain Melchior, Eddy Walt, Travis McDonald, Tyler Hudson and Brendan Lynch.

James Ogihara-Kertz James Ogihara-Kertz knows exactly what he has to work on now to improve after many years of swimming. “Probably just to keep my freestyle less splashy and just, I guess, all my swimming all together,’’ said Ogihara-Kertz, a Grade 8 student at Mount Prevost Middle School, who turns 14 on March 12. “When I was five, I went into the Breakers for a year after my brother joined,’’ he explained. They eventually switched over to the Duncan Stingrays and Ogihara-Kertz carried on even after his brother Eli left the team. “It’s a lot of fun,’’ he said. “I expect to see a lot of great things from him,’’ said Stingrays’ assistant coach Colleen Smith. “We’ve been working a lot on our technique. He is coming along. It’s been a pleasure working with him.’’ Training sessions four times a week have fueled Ogihara-Kertz’s progress. “I think back about how slow I was, but then all of that training has helped me a lot,’’ he said. The 100- and 200-metre fly have become his two specialty events. That evolved from a meet in Chilliwack two years ago when Ogihara-Kertz won silver medals in those events plus a bronze.

t was a great night for basketball and a ¿tting tribute to a former Cowichan Thunderbird great Friday night at Cowichan Secondary School. The T-Birds improved to 5-0 in North Island senior boys’ league play with a 7954 victory over Vanier. Jerod Dorby and Ben Ingham led the scoring with 15 points apiece, with eight and 10 rebounds, respectively. Andrew Larson contributed 14 points and eight rebounds while Cyrus Gray got into the act with 14 points, eight rebounds and seven steals As good as the victory was, it wasn’t the best part of the night. A ceremony to retire Jason McKinnon’s No. 33 jersey was conducted during halftime. McKinnon died in January of 2012. His parents and brothers were thrilled with the honour bestowed upon the family. A ball drop was also held and the winner of a $2,500 prize was Julie Schlienz, the mother of T-Birds’ manager Foster Schlienz. A total of $7,000 was raised for the Jason McKinnon Scholarship Fund. Money will be awarded to some of the graduating T-Birds at the end of the season. The T-Birds also won 85-73 at Dover Bay last Tuesday. Dorby collected 24 points and 13 rebounds while Larson tallied 20 points and eight assists. Gray also had a superb game with 19 points.

The Cowichan T-Bird senior girls lost a challenge game to Spectrum 53-35 Monday night at Frances Kelsey to get into the island tournament. “The kids gave it all they had and never quit,’’ noted Jim Nugent, co-coach of the team with Michelle Keserich. Cowichan ¿nished fourth in the North Island tournament. It started well with a 47-41 win over Campbell River, as Katie Porter and Sarah St. Cyr both played strong games.

Duncan to host 2014 B.C. mixed curling championships

Got a sports story? email sports@cowichannewsleader.com phone 250-746-4471

ON THE ICE

Duncan Curling Club has been awarded the 2014 Williams Moving and Storage B.C. mixed curling championship. The club last hosted a provincial championship in 2007. “I have no doubt we’re going to host a successful event,’’ said

Brent Dellebuur, one of the club’s directors. “We have done it twice before.’’ The club recently sold its building to the Municipality of North Cowichan, allowing it to get back on a more solid financial footing. As a condition of the sale, the

building was renamed the Glen Harper Curling Centre in honour of the local curling legend. Curl B.C.’s Scott Braley is delighted to have Duncan hosting the B.C. mixed championships. “Duncan has a vibrant curling community,’’ he said.

Branzsen’s overtime goal a wild Änish to wild card Playoff bound: Islanders survive Storm battle to face Nanaimo in first round Don Bodger

A

little pain was well worth the gain for the Kerry Park Islanders. Game hero Tylor Branzsen, who scored the winning goal in overtime to propel the team into the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League playoffs, and set-up man Corey Peterson both came out of the celebratory scrum banged up, but weren’t complaining. “I got a little shiner from it and Corey chipped his tooth — a trip to the dentist for him,’’ said Branzsen of the drawbacks to the hoopla that ensued after the Islanders beat the Campbell River Storm 4-3 in a wild card game Sunday at Victoria’s Bear Mountain Arena for the league’s ¿nal playoff spot. Islanders’ owner Mark Os-

mond didn’t get a good look at the goal, but he didn’t care. “I was just praying someone was going to bash it in,’’ he said. The odds were stacked against the Islanders in many ways. They were without offensive standouts Alex Milligan and Braeden Cross and defenceman Anthony Gilbert and were also playing their fourth game in as many days. But they overcame it all to salvage something from a season that might have otherwise been lost. “I’m happy for the boys,’’ said Osmond. “They went through a lot of adversity this year and they’ve bought into (coach) Dale (Purinton’s) system.’’ Branzsen was an unlikely candidate to decide the issue. He suffered a concussion in January and only returned to play Thursday, scoring a goal in a previous 7-5 loss to Campbell

River, and Friday before sitting out Saturday again. But he was there when it mattered most Sunday. “It was a big goal, a big win,’’ conceded Branzsen. There was only 1:39 left in the 10-minute overtime when Branzsen scored. “It was a line change so I skated down the ice and went right for the net and yelled for the pass and put her in,’’ he said. It was a great game, with players on both sides putting it all on the line in the sudden-death format. “I’m sure the younger guys were pretty nervous,’’ said Branzsen. “I wasn’t too nervous. It was a do-or-die game. We had to give everything we got.’’ The Islanders led 2-0 and 3-2 but the Storm rallied both times to tie it. Branzsen’s winner came just two seconds after Campbell River’s Tyson Fair returned

The Caps were ahead of the Smoke Easters in Trail 4-3 after 40 minutes Friday and held a 2-0 advantage at the same stage Saturday in Vernon against the Vipers. In each case, the Caps settled for a point in overtime losses — 5-4 to the Smoke Eaters and 3-2 to the Vipers. “It’s almost more frustrating

Overtime losses: Caps blow two-goal leads having a lead and losing it,’’ said Caps’ coach Aaron Plumb. The Caps were actually up 4-2 late in the second on Trail when Luke Sandler closed the gap to one late in the period. Sandler also scored the lone goal of the third, setting the stage for Valik Chichkin’s winner two minutes into the three-on-three overtime. Jarrett Brown, Garrett Skrbich, Jamie Waddington and Mikael Jung scored for the Caps. Skrbich and Jesse Neher staked the Caps to the 2-0 lead in Vernon before the Vipers stormed back in the third to tie it on goals by Mitch McAllister and Mason Blacklock, who also potted the

winner with 36 seconds left in the four-on-four overtime. “We just quit ¿nishing checks and we let them start skating,’’ said Plumb of the turnaround in the game. The last game of the trip Sunday in Penticton was no contest despite the best efforts of goalie Patrick Spano. He was still named the game’s third star despite giving up seven goals in a 7-1 win by the defending Royal Bank Cup national champion Vees. Waddington had the lone marker for the Caps against the Vees’ Nic Renyard, a former Cowichan Valley rep goalie, in

the second period. Spano faced a barrage of 45 shots. “That team is a real good team,’’ said Plumb. “I knew they were going to be good. When I watched them play, I was real surprised at the skill and the speed.’’ The Caps took Monday off and are now getting ready for another big weekend, with back-to-back games against the Grizzlies in Victoria Friday and Saturday at Cowichan Arena. They’re also taking on Surrey Sunday at 4 p.m. at Cowichan Arena. “We’ve got some pretty fun games coming up,’’ said Plumb. “Obviously, we get to see Keyler Bruce, our old captain, and play against him.’’
