Breathing new life into heritage hotel Victoria Plaza undergoing further refinements to its original look

W

hen Henry Sandham Griffith first sketched the drawings for the Hotel Westholme in 1910, he likely didn’t imagine it would evolve into a nowdefunct strip club and a rooming house with a public urinal marking its street corner. Known today as the Plaza Hotel, the Old Town building at 603-607 Pandora Ave. has had its share of eclectic tenants, from its first restaurant, the Songhees Grill, in 1911 to the Beatnik Coffee House in the 1960s, where spoken word poets gathered in smoke-filled rooms to throw down their jives. But a rebirth is finally on the horizon for the heritage registered building. Council will decide in the coming weeks whether to move to public hearing on new plans that would see two additional storeys of residences and a public plaza on the corner of Pandora and Government streets. “We’ve worked very hard with the city and planning staff over the last year to Daniel Palmer try and find something they’re supportive of,” said Jordan Milne, president of GMC Reporting Projects, which hopes to develop the building. The city’s planning and land-use committee was scheduled to consider the proposed alterations and an upgrade to heritage designation Thursday. A significant change in the new plans is along the storefront on Government Street, where the Monty’s and Metropolis awnings currently hide the building’s Edwardian heritage features.

Few issues with system change: Coast Capital Megan Cole News staff

Coast Capital Savings Credit Union is dealing with “limited” challenges following the disruption of service over the Family Day long weekend while it switched to a new banking system. Despite issues for some customers, the process went as well as expected and “maybe even better,” Coast Capital

spokesperson Jay-Ann Fordy said. “There are no big problems, so the system is running as expected,” she said. “Our other banking system was around for many, many years so there were some challenges and one-offs with accounts looking different, so we’re working with customers (to help them) understand the new system.” Fordy said some customers

had problems accessing online banking and card transactions at ATMs or point of sale machines. “We’ve been able to resolve the problems by working on them daily and are improving them constantly,” she said. “Our customers have been great. I know it’s a big change for them but we apologize for any impact we’ve had – but I believe we’re coming through the other end.” mcole@oakbaynews.com

Taking science to the outside world UVic hopes to move nanotechnologies and other high-tech projects into the commercial phase Edward Hill News staff

In a windowless room of a University of Victoria engineering lab, a biomedical sensor the size of a postage stamp could hold the answer to a fast and inexpensive way to diagnose disease. Bright gold and transparent, the sensor is peppered with holes on the scale of a few hundred nanometres – 600 times thinner than a human hair – and infused with micro-drops of blood provided by a hospital in Toronto. With a laser and properly calibrated imaging camera, researchers will eventually be able to quickly detect telltale signs of leukemia and other cancers, without biopsies or laboratory blood work. “This is a proof-of-concept device. The nano-structure integrated into this biosensor looks for markers used to ID leukemia,” said Alex Brolo, a UVic chemistry professor. “It’s not done yet, but it’s getting there.” This biomedical sensor and its underlying microfluid and nanotechnology are still years away from clinical use, but federal funding announced last month is designed to kick it from the basement lab in the Elliott Building to a viable prototype for industry. The Canadian Foundation for Innovation has committed $7.7 million for the Prometheus Project, a collaboration between UVic, Simon Fraser University, the Uni-

It is an effort that seeks to do nothing less than make Victoria and Metro Vancouver worldclass materials science hubs. Brolo, the lead scientist for UVic’s arm of Prometheus, said the foundation’s funding will build on decades of fundamental research into nanotechnology and materials science, which has been backed by a $110-million investment. “The previous investments created a lot of proof-of-concepts, a lot of research ideas that are being tested and look promising,” Brolo said. “This (funding) can take us to the next level.

This is a hot area with a lot of ideas, but sometimes the best idea doesn’t win in the end.” UVic expects to receive about $1.8 million from the foundation for a total of $4.5 million through matching provincial funds and contributions from private companies. That funding is earmarked for advanced fabricating equipment, lasers and microscopes for about 20 UVic researchers focused on solar cells, biomedical sensors and quantum computing. For solar technology, researchers are looking to integrate nanotubes on to a thin film to vastly improve how solar

cells capture light, while also making it flexible and lighter. Nano-structures integrated into biomedical sensors could not only quickly detect disease, people could use the sensors to establish a personalized baseline of health. Brolo said engineered nanoparticles could provide better medical imaging of tumours for instance, or such particles could deliver targeted medication. “One drop of blood it can monitor several proteins related to disease in the clinical environment,” he said. “You don’t have to send it to a lab, you can do it for $10 in a clinic.” Typically, researchers

manipulate metals such as silver and gold to create nano structures, which in turn have unusual properties at the billionth of a metre scale. Brolo can’t give timelines when this research might make the leap from the lab to a company, but he said this is a good time for academics and industry to collaborate. “Universities aren’t in the business of making products, it is about training students and creating knowledge,” Brolo said. “But there is an understanding among academics that it’s not enough to create knowledge, that if you have a good idea, it’s important to translate that into industry.” When and if any of these Prometheus projects will emerge in the real world is hard to know, but it’s likely UVic Industry Partnerships will eventually investigate if the technologies can be patented, and then licensed or spun off into a company. In the past five years, UVic scientists have disclosed at least 60 inventions each year. In 2011-12, Industry Partnerships filed for 16 patents, licenced four technologies and had one spinoff company. UVic gets its cut, either 20 per cent of revenues or a negotiated revenue sharing contract with the researcher. Jerome Etwaroo, an Industry Partnerships liaison officer, said there are no hard and fast rules on if a technology will survive to commercialization, but it needs to be novel and there needs to be a market. “A lot of technology is being developed at UVic,” Etwaroo said. “UVic is one of the most innovative universities in Canada.” editor@saanichnews.com

Capital Regional District Core Area Wastewater Treatment Program

Notice of Open House: Craigflower Pump Station The Capital Regional District (CRD) is working with staff from View Royal, and engaged the Gorge Waterway Initiative and other community groups on plans for a new pump station at 150 Island Highway (adjacent to 4 Mile Bridge). The proposed pump station will be designed to accommodate existing and future sewerage system capacity needs in View Royal, Colwood, Langford and the Esquimalt panhandle; as well as Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations. The new facility was approved as part of the Core Area Wastewater Treatment Program with partial funding coming from the Government of Canada’s Green Infrastructure Fund. This new pump station is necessary to replace the existing pump station that has reached the end of its design life and must be replaced to meet the growing need of the Region. The Open House will provide an opportunity for the public to obtain information, ask questions and provide comments on the proposed pump station.

Opinions split on merits of Plaza Hotel redevelopment Continued from Page A1

Milne hopes to restore the original bay windows and brick exposure and house up to four commercial tenants on the ground level. “We’ve also created an inner courtyard that will be accessible off the public right of way, and we’ll have two live-work units that are on the inside of the courtyard on the main level,” Milne said. A total of 106 units would be created as part of a two-storey addition to the hotel, he added. Downtown Residents Association chair Ian Sutherland is endorsing the new plans, and in a letter of support, he commends the developer for agreeing to a setback of the upper storeys to hide them from street view. The public urinal at Pandora Street would also be relocated at the developer’s expense. But those changes may not be enough for Victoria Coun. Pam Madoff, who sits on the planning and land-use committee. She worries incremental height and density changes to the buildings in Old Town could eventually erode the character of the neighbourhood. “Individually, each building may not be

Esquimalt seeking waste deal with Victoria

EVEN COMPLEXION SKIN DOES MAKE YOU LOOK YOUNGER!!

Township ends backyard garbage pickup

Eliminate age spots, brown spots, red vessels rosacea & more

Daniel Palmer News staff

Backyard garbage pickup will soon end for Esquimalt homeowners. Councillors voted Monday to implement curbside collection when it begins collecting kitchen scraps for about 3,600 residences later this year. Mayor Barb Desjardins acknowledged the change will present some difficulties for

seniors and people with mobility problems, but said staff are working on ways to provide limited support services. “We value that we are an agefriendly community and I include accessibility under that category as well,” she said. The decision was made as a cost-saving measure and to lessen the possibility of injuries to municipal workers, Desjardins said. Esquimalt collects up to 1,700 tonnes of garbage each year and its trucks make a two-hour round trip to Hartland landfill. Staff are proposing they lighten the load by dumping kitchen scraps and garbage at the City of Victoria

public works yard. The proposal, yet to be negotiated with the city, calls for Victoria’s trucks to transport the organic waste and garbage to the dump for a fee. “It’s a shorter distance than going to Hartland, so that translates into lower fuel costs ... less wear and tear on the equipment,” said Jeff Miller, Esquimalt’s public works director. Miller plans to talk to city staff in the coming months to see if the proposal is feasible. He admitted the plan would only be beneficial if Victoria agreed to accept both kitchen scraps and garbage. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Tax hikes part of B.C.’s balanced budget

SKIN LASER CLINIC

There’s more on line - vicnews.com

Black Press

The B.C. Liberals’ pre-election budget proposes to implement income tax increases on business and higher-income individuals, similar to proposals from the NDP opposition. The corporate income tax rate would rise one point to 11 per cent effective April 1, accelerating by a year an increase announced in 2012. NDP leader Adrian Dix has repeatedly promised to increase the corporate rate to 12 per cent. In Finance Minister Mike de Jong’s budget, tabled Tuesday, personal income taxes for those earning $150,000 or more would rise 2.1 per cent to 16.8 per cent for two years, starting next January. That increase is to be rolled back to the current rate of 14.7 per cent in 2015, de Jong said. Dix has indicated that if the NDP forms government, he would impose an income tax increase for those earning $150,000 or more a year, with specifics promised in the NDP election platform. De Jong stressed that B.C.’s personal income tax rates are still the lowest in Canada for those earning up to $122,000 a year. With a provincial election set for May 14, this budget will not be passed by the time the brief legislature session ends in late March. Its measures are part of a campaign platform for Clark’s government, and the winner of

Premier Christy Clark and Jobs Minister Pat Bell listen as Finance Minister Mike de Jong delivers his budget speech in the B.C. legislature on Tuesday. the election must pass a budget in the fall. Also proposed is a tobacco tax hike of $2 per carton of cigarettes. De Jong said the effective date is held off until Oct. 1 to give people time to quit smoking, with 100,000 B.C. residents currently taking advantage of a provincial program offering free nicotine patches, gum or approved prescription drugs. The last tobacco tax increase was seven per cent when the harmonized sales tax was implemented in 2010, replacing the provincial sales tax that didn’t apply to tobacco. The tax is to be retained when the province reverts to the PST on April 1. De Jong’s budget also proposes to phase out school property tax credits for light industry for the 2013 budget year. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

B.C. offers break in education funds A children’s education fund set up by the B.C. government in 2007 is being distributed to parents, with a suggestion that they add to the fund for their kids’ education. Tuesday’s budget called for payouts of $1,200 from the fund for each child as they turn six. To qualify, registered parents need a Registered Education Savings Plan and must apply for the grant before their child turns seven. Eligible children are those born on or after Jan. 1, 2007, resident in B.C. with an RESP account set up by Feb. 28, 2014. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

A physically challenged son recently contested his father’s Will under B.C.’s Wills Variation Act. The Act allows a child or spouse (including a common-law spouse in a marriage-like relationship for two years or more) of a testator to go to court if they feel the Will made by their deceased parent or spouse is unfair and does not make adequate provision for them. If the court agrees, it may change the Will to leave what it considers “adequate, just and equitable” provision in the particular situation. In this 2011 case, the fight was between the deceased’s commonlaw spouse (let’s call her Kate) and the deceased’s son (Tony). Kate was 20 years younger than her deceased husband. She had lived with him for four years and looked after him to the very end. Tony was only five years younger than his step-mother and had been estranged from his father for many years. However, father and son had reconciled shortly before the father’s death at age 84, after Tony had his leg amputated. The deceased left an estate of some $438,000, which included a home valued at $210,000. The deceased made a Will in the last year of his life. He instructed the solicitor who drew the will that his primary concern was to look after Kate and told the solicitor that she would receive the home on his death. Under the Will, he left Tony a gift of $10,000 and a 1999 Oldsmobile, citing their long estrangement. He also left approximately $43,000 to others. He left the balance of his estate to Kate. Unhappy with his share, Tony asked

the court to change the Will. The lower court changed the Will, but in a way that was uncertain for both Kate and Tony, so they both appealed. The B.C. Appeal Court pointed out that the deceased’s freedom to dispose of his assets as he wished had to be balanced against his legal and moral obligations to his common-law spouse and his adult independent child. Legal obligations typically trump moral ones (which are based on the judge’s sense of community standards of fairness). The deceased had a legal obligation to support his common-law spouse, who wasn’t well off. He also had moral obligations to her – she had been a loving and faithful companion to him. But the court concluded he also had some moral obligations to his son. Tony had experienced other health problems in addition to the loss of his leg and was living in subsidized housing for the disabled. Also, the deceased had earlier planned (with Kate’s consent) to leave his son $60,000 under the Will, but later chose to leave only $10,000 due to a falling stock market. Kate agreed with Tony that the amount left to him was too small. Taking into account all the factors, the appeal court decided that an adequate, just and equitable outcome was to give Tony $60,000 (instead of the $10,000 set out in the Will), but to reinstate the Will in all other respects. This largely restored Kate’s position to what the deceased had intended to give her. Consult your lawyer if you believe your inheritance under a Will of a parent or spouse isn’t adequate and just.

And whether we make a regular habit of admiring it, thinking about it, talking about it or helping preserve it, our history deserves to be acknowledged. Along with built Individuals and structures either as heritage groups preserve designated properties or simply our heritage restored to past glory, we have parks, roads, even trees that have historical designations. The West Shore has a significant piece of our heritage puzzle in Fort Rodd Hill, while the Peninsula has The Butchart Gardens. Victoria’s downtown core includes many fine examples of historical architecture, while clusters of heritage homes in Victoria, Saanich and Oak Bay help define our neighbourhoods and give us a sense of community. As we celebrate Heritage Week this week, we recognize many local groups that work regularly to preserve our past. Among them is the non-profit Hallmark Society. Its volunteers assist in the preservation, conservation and restoration of our built heritage and work towards greater public awareness and understanding of heritage. Like many proclamations made by the provincial or municipal governments, Heritage Week may seem to some like a forced recognition of an element of our society. But if we stop to consider the fact that the stories of those who came before us are wrapped up in local buildings, homes and museum collections, it makes this celebration of heritage much more personal. We encourage readers this week to take stock of our history and try to appreciate the rich legacy that surrounds us. It’s an opportunity to reflect on how our communities have grown over the years and consider how we can all play a part in preserving the history that helps make our region a special place to live, work and play.

All you need to make liquid laundry soap is a bar of soap, washing soda, Borax and water. It takes 30 minutes to make four litres and costs about 50 cents. I will never go back to store-bought detergent. Other than saving money, it’s nice to believe that the dish soap bottle beside my sink is the last one I will ever own. Same goes for the shampoo and the rest of the products. I have always been a crafty person, and making these things is fun. I get my daughter involved and we make it an afternoon project. My three-year-old loves the sense of pride she gets brushing her teeth with her homemade paste. The almond extract and orange essential oil give it a great flavour that no kid could say no to. On a side note, I was a gardener at the Pilgrim Community Church garden in Colwood for nearly five years, and was disappointed when the church decided to close it down recently. When the landfills reach their capacity, another large area of Earth will need to become the next one. If we are looking for public uses for our land, I’d rather have another community garden than another landfill. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Re: Questions remain on wireless effects, but evidence growing (Letters, Feb. 8) Smart meters are safe and communicate using radio frequency signals that are similar to what has been used for decades in televisions, radios and other common household devices. B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer, Health Canada and the World Health Organization all confirm the wireless meters pose no known health risks. To put it in perspective, we asked a certified professional engineering firm located in North Vancouver to measure the power and duration of our new meter. The results confirm

a B.C. Hydro smart meter communicates for 1.4 seconds per day. In other words, you would have to stand next to your meter for 20 years to get the equivalent amount of radio frequency as a 30 minute cellphone call. As the project nears completion, customers are beginning to see the benefits of a more modern electrical system. For example, many customers now have access to new conservation tools through their secure online B.C. Hydro account, helping them save energy and money. Later this year, customers will benefit from automatic outage detection that will help crews

restore power faster and safer. Smart meters are now standard equipment just like utility poles and power lines and are required to modernize the system and ensure the safe, efficient delivery of electricity to British Columbians. We thank customers for their support and patience as we work to modernize our electricity system so we can continue to safely provide the electricity needed to power homes and businesses around the province every day.

PM can thank Liberals for financial picture Re: Canada’s PM hasn’t done such a bad job (Letters, Feb. 15) Eileen Nattrass asserts that “Our prime minister has taken care of Canada brilliantly” because “Canada is the only country to survive the mess in the financial world.” She can thank Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin, who ignored Harper’s pressure to emulate the U.S. arbitrage banks and jump into the speculative market. By the time Harper won a majority, the financial mess was so deep and broad that likely even Harper saw the wisdom of keeping the Liberal banking approach. Nattrass can thank the same Liberals for Canada not joining the vengeful Iraq campaign, since Chrétien chose not to sign on in the absence of a UN resolution. So, it seems that Harper’s “brilliance” was to maintain Chrétien and Martin’s careful strategy, for which Harper is trying to claim credit. As usual, Harper shows his colours as an unprincipled demagogue. Michael Meagher Saanich

Overfishing main culprit for lack of herring Re: Herring disappearing from recreational fishery: anglers (News, Feb. 13) I wonder if Bob Briggs, and countless others I’m sure, pulling 60 fish out of the Gorge Waterway on a good day and more than 500 fish over the two-month spawning period has had anything to do with the herring disappearing?

The decline is clear, but the reason is also crystal clear. I equate this article with NDP leader Adrian Dix coming on TV and saying “the Liberals like to use attack ads.” I can assume Dix himself is gullible and naive enough to think that his is not an attack ad, but does he really think the public are gullible enough to swallow his thin attack? Are people who read this article gullible enough to think that public overfishing of herring stock had nothing to do with the herring disappearing? Mike Bolli Victoria

Mental illness robs people of life Re: Stigma perpetuated by mainstream media (Letters, Feb. 15) I must beg to differ with Doreen Marion Gee. Why? Much like those who commit violent acts, the suspicion is that there is a very low percentage of people with mental illness who are “talented and amazing.” Severe mental illness strikes the young. Everyone has witnessed someone from their student days suffering from mental illness. The next generation comes of age and they, also, watch the suffering. The brain is the least understood organ in the body and so it is probable that many more generations are going to watch friends from their youth slip away. I am no journalist, but my gut tells me there is a story in here somewhere. Christina Nicol Saanich

Wilderness at stake with pipeline project Two intrepid seekers of truth and fact covered the territory of the proposed Enbridge pipeline into B.C. The documentary On the Line follows the 2,400-kilometre journey by foot, bike and kayak. We see and vicariously experience how fragile, rugged and precious that wilderness now is. We hear how many persons will ultimately lose their way of life and livelihood for the sake of a relatively small number of permanent new positions. We must not allow this tragedy to occur. It is worth our very lives to prevent this horrendous destruction to happen. Keep uniting folks. We must stop this pipeline. Clare Lowery Metchosin

Ancient remains found at Craigflower Bridge site Archeology work not expected to alter bridge plans Kyle Slavin News staff

The construction site around the Craigflower Bridge where two sets of human remains were found this week is well-known as a historic First Nations site. Saanich and View Royal were prepared for the possibility of discovering culturally significant material on the land that will soon house a jointly owned replace-

ment bridge, and sought out an archaeological monitor for the land before work even began. “The area’s middens are known to contain human remains and the monitor will ensure that the terms of the permit are met should human remains be found,” reads a request for proposals from the municipalities issued last month. On Monday, a B.C. Hydro crew was excavating by hand between the Craigflower elementary property and the sidewalk on Admirals Road to prepare for the installation of temporary power poles, when they encountered human remains, said Jim Hemstock, Saanich’s manager of capital works.

“They had an archaeologist on site monitoring things. They also had a First Nations monitor,” he said. “The lead on this now is First Nations. We consult with the elders and we really follow their direction.” Grant Keddie, curator of archaeology at the Royal B.C. Museum, said there’s evidence First Nations occupied that site as long as 2,800 years ago. “It appears that a part of the site was occupied very early on, and then (1,600 years) later a larger portion of the site was used,” he said. “It certainly wasn’t occupied continuously, but it was occupied at different time periods.”

A midden, in archaeological terms, is a site where animal bones and shells are found in heaps, indicating that area was – at some point in history – occupied by humans. “Practically with all these shell middens, people are buried behind the village or in an abandoned area, so the vast majority of these large middens are expected to have human remains in them,” Keddie said. Saanich and View Royal are now working with the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations, ancestors of the people who inhabited the area, on the next steps. This discovery, Hemstock said,

hasn’t changed the bridge project timeline. It actually expedited more thorough testing of the surrounding land. The possibility of finding more bones remains, he said. “Until we know entirely what’s there, it’s hard to predict – that’s why we’re starting this work early. We were prepared for this.” Construction on the new Craigflower Bridge is expected to begin in April and is slated to last six months. The 80-year-old, timberbeam span will be replaced by a three-lane steel bridge, double the width of the existing bridge, at an estimated cost of $11.9 million. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Is Coming to Size You Up

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 VICTORIA ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27TH to outfit you with the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-onone basis, explaining the benefits of good bras and measuring their bodies properly. “Most women just want to find a good-fitting bra that’s not uncomfortable,” Chapman said. “What they don’t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage.” 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.

It’s hard to sum up a 17-year career. But as David Feys of Feys and Hobbs Catered Arts prepares to move on to a new chapter, he used one word to describe it: wonderful. “We’ve done some magnificent parties and events, and as an event manager and planner, I’ll continue to do some great parties. We just won’t be making the food ourselves,” he said. Feys announced on Don Descoteau Monday he is closing Biz Beat his catering operation and The Canteen on Oak Bay Avenue, effective March 1. His focus, as he plans to continue with product development and event design and management, is on life balance. “I have a personal issue that I need to give particular focus to and I have a longstanding contract with a corporation to do event planning and management, and it is growing and opening new doors for me.” The Feys and Hobbs brand will continue, as Feys continues to create and expand his product line which includes preserves, chutneys and nuts. – Megan Cole

Hip hop artist finds inspiration in overcoming troubled past Kyle Slavin News staff

Sobriety isn’t a word typically associated with hip hop music. Drugs, alcohol or both tend to be a recurring theme in the music and the lives of the talent that occupy this space. This is true of Chris Hamilton – or at least it was true. “I grew up in the Comox Valley and I always used the excuse, ‘I’m from a small town, there’s nothing to do, so this is what I do,’” the 26-year-old says of his past, having started drinking at 10 – stealing it from his parents – and smoking pot at 12. By his mid-teens, he’d moved on to ecstasy and cocaine. And in his 20s he was taking “pretty much everything you could think of, short of anything involving needles.” Through it all, though, Hamilton wrote music. “I’ve been writing lines since I was about 12 years old. It didn’t get serious for me until I was about 21 when I moved over to Vancouver,” he says. “Seeing an actual studio (in Vancouver) moti-

own music.” But drugs and alcohol were still playing an active role in his life. In January 2012, Hamilton was

ready to exorcise his demons, and went to rehab for the second time. (He went once before at age 19, but admits he wasn’t “I noticed ready to quit everything, my thought havprocess is a lot hence ing returned to old habits quicker.” - Chris Hamilton almost immediately upon release.) “Life’s changed for the better (since rehab),” he says, now one year sober. “I’ve reestablished a lot of old relationships with friends and family, I’m not always broke and complaining about stuff, and it’s just a more positive way to live.” Hamilton admits he was concerned at first about what impact sobriety would have on his music, but it’s been nothing but a positive experience. “I noticed my thought process is a lot quicker. Songs get written a lot quicker, beats happen a lot quicker. And there’s definitely more positivity, for sure,” he says. “It takes a lot of energy to maintain (a drug- and alcohol-fuelled) life-

style, so being able to channel that energy into music as a creative outlet has been great.” Hamilton, a.k.a. Ill Tone, performs March 7 at Lucky Bar. He’ll open for Masta Ace on the Western Canadian dates of his crosscountry tour. On Feb. 27, Ill Tone’s debut album, Bringin’ the Hope Back will be released. The album is some three years in the making, meaning the music is more of a reflection of Hamilton’s past life. He’s already working on his next album, which won’t be full of songs written during “the depths of all my crap.” “When a person’s in the depths of their addictions, they’re not going to be saying too many positive things,” he says. “I still write the occasional heavy song, because I think about that life that I lived to write about it and get it out in the open. But definitely I’m a lot happier – that will show with my next album.” Visit illtonemusic.com.

Victoria Mariners product at Chicago Cubs spring training

It’s the biggest and baddest rugby rivalry in Victoria, and possibly the biggest team rivalry of all the city’s sports teams. The blue-clad James Bay Athletic Association visit the red and black Castaway Wanderers at Windsor Park on Saturday (Feb. 23) as CDI Premier League men’s rugby returns from a three month break. Half of the gate’s proceeds will be donated to the Victoria Hospice. Saturday is a doubleheader, as the respective first division teams will kickoff at 1 p.m., followed by the premiers at 2:45 p.m. Victoria Hospice provides quality end-of-life care. In other CDI Premier rugby action the UVic Vikes host Bayside (Surrey) at Wallace Field, also at 2:45 p.m. in the Island’s Cowichan Cup, Velox Academy hosts Cowichan at 1 p.m. and Velox Valhallians hosts Nanaimo at 2:30 p.m.

Rugby’s biggest rivalry will benefit Victoria Hospice

Spring has come early for Victoria’s Jesse Hodges, but it’s been a long winter. This week the 18-year-old baseball player heads to Arizona for spring training as a member of the Chicago Cubs. It’s the next step in a career that took off with the swing of a bat last August. Hodges went from being undrafted and bound for junior college to being one of the hottest unsigned prospects, and was snapped up by the Cubs. Now he’s looking to grab a spot with one of the Cubs’ many minor league organizations. “I’ve spent the winter just playing baseball and getting myself stronger, in the gym and indoor hitting. I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life.” At camp he will be one of the few prospects that wasn’t drafted – as he was passed over in the 2012 MLB draft in June. It was a down time for Hodges, who had reason to believe he’d be picked midway through the draft. But some things have a way of working themselves out. Three months later, Hodges rectified his draft situation with a clutch home run at the 18-and-under World Baseball Championship in Seoul, South Korea. Hodges was slotted ninth in the batting order when he slugged a two-run, twoout home run that helped Canada defeat Japan. “Hitting that home run changed the tournament for me, it got me rolling. Then to put pen to paper, it had me even more confident,” Hodges said. After the home run he was bumped from ninth up to sixth in the batting order. He kept hitting the ball, and was moved into the cleanup spot for the semifinal and championship games. Canada lost in the final to U.S.A. but Hodges finished the world championships as the leading

Jesse Hodges in his Chicago Cubs gear stands, holding his World Baseball Championship Canadian team MVP and All World team trophies. hitter with a .484 average, the most hits with 15, highest total bases with 22, and was tied for second in doubles. “Confidence and belief in my game is what I have so much of going into spring training.” Hodges had played his premier midget career as a shortstop with the Victoria Mariners of the B.C. Premier Baseball League the past three seasons, and was part of the M’s 2010 B.C. championship. He played third for Team Canada and his transition was seamless, as he made the World Championships’ All World team and, was signed as a third basemen by the Cubs. “The scouts were talking to my parents at the world championships, and I could see them. I asked my parents, ‘who were you talking to?’ but they didn’t want to tell me. Finally they did, and it was the

Cubs.” He signed the deal before the tournament was over. Until that moment, the Lambrick Park secondary grad was set to play for Grayson Junior College in Texas. Now he is among a smaller number of Cubs recruits getting a jump on spring training. Hodges is already familiar with wearing Cubs blue, having attended instructional league in the fall, and will have a couple of weeks to warm up before the “big leaguers” show up. They’re all going to be there, but don’t expect to see Hodges on ESPN any time soon. “The realistic goal for this year is to make a low-A (single-A) team. The ultimate goal is the big leagues.” sports@vicnews.com

The B.C. Hockey League’s inaugural showcase at Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre last September won dozens of players scholarships in the NCAA. It made the league much more accessible to scouts from smaller NCAA schools, particularly Div. 3 programs, which can’t afford to have traveling recruiters year round. Several Victoria Grizzlies benefitted from the event, as many are headed to the NCAA next year. Next year’s Showcase is set for Sept. 6 to 8, with each team playing two regular season games. The Grizzlies are home to the Cowichan Capitals tonight (Feb. 22), 7:15 p.m. at Bear Mountain Arena. Saturday the Grizz visit Cowichan.

Judokas throw for gold at Pacific tournament Seven members of the Victoria Judo Club competed at the Pacific International Judo tournament in Richmond last weekend, with four picking up medals. Tristan Alexander, 14, won gold, despite being the youngest in the U18 over-90 kgs division. Josh van Meur won silver in the U21 and men’s open at sub-81 kgs. George Lukas won silver in the U21 sub-66 kgs category. Jackson Minnick won bronze in the U15 sub-50kg category.

Construction is set to begin on the site of the future home of the University of Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities (CARSA). Tom Smith, UVicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of facilities management, anticipates initial site work on the project to start next week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long time coming and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thrilled with the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finally going to proceed,â&#x20AC;? he said, referring to Saanich council delaying approving the project on two different occasions, which pushed the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction timeline back more than a year. The project experienced a hiccup when it was put out to tender earlier this winter, Smith said, as its cost rose by $4.3 million. Additional funds were secured from the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking reserve fund, and from the athletics, recreation and food services department budgets. The university board of governors approved the new project budget earlier this month. Since then, Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Campbell Construction was awarded the $77-million contract to build the combined athletics centre and contentious five-level parkade, which has a tentative opening date of April 2015. CARSA and the parking garage will be built atop an existing parking lot, meaning students and staff will lose at least 234 parking spaces on campus until the parkade construction is complete.

This drawing depicts what the University of Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities will look like when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complete. Site work should begin next week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a series of signs already prepared waiting to go up that will direct students to other lots. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got vacant parking spaces around campus, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just not as convenient,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. Adding to the mix of construction in the area, the District of Saanich is optimistic upgrades to McKenzie Avenue, from Shelbourne Street to Finnerty Road, will begin in the spring or early summer. Brad Ormiston, project manager, says Saanich is just finalizing the detailed design of the project before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put out to tender. He expects roadwork to last four or five months. Upgrades to the road are set to come in two phases, with work crews ideally running at the same time, Ormiston said. The first phase, which will be done by Saanich, will see upgrades along McKenzie from Tuscany Village to Gordon Head Road and the entrance to UVic. The roadway, running some 800 metres between intersections, will lose one westbound lane to accommodate new bike

lanes on either side of the road. The second phase, which will be put to tender, will see McKenzie widened between McGill and Finnerty roads. New bike lanes, left turn lanes and grassy medians will be installed, a traffic light at a new intersection (Phoenix Road at McKenzie) will be built, and the traffic light at Finnerty will be replaced by a traffic circle. Smith says accesses in and out of UVic wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be impacted by construction of the CARSA or McKenzie Avenue projects. CARSA will be a 190,000square-foot complex including a 2,100-seat gym, a four-court field house, an elevated running track and climbing centre. It will also be home to CanAssist, a UVic-based organization that develops technologies and services for people living with disabilities. Saanich council sent UVic back to the drawing board twice in 2011, denying approval of development permits due to a lack of quality public consultation.

Housing youth must be a priority Jennifer Blyth Black Press

Most people would agree that a community has a responsibility to provide its children and young people a safe, nurturing community in which to grow up. Essential to that – for their mental and physical health, their self-confidence and their ability to grow into healthy, productive adults, is a place to live. For too many youth in the Capital Region, however, that ideal is simply not the reality. The Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness believes there are as many as 600 youth and young adults experiencing homelessness in the region. Typically, these can be young teens right up to those in their mid- to late-20s. While estimates suggest youth homelessness is increasing by as much as 10 per cent per year, as many as 80 per cent of homeless youth do not sleep rough on the streets, but are “hidden” – couch surfing or sleeping in cars; others are “horribly insecurely housed,” sharing a small space with many people and paying virtually all of what little money they have for rent, says Mark Muldoon, executive director of the Threshold Youth Housing Society. And despite the common myth that many at-risk youth come from outside the region, most come from surrounding municipalities, Muldoon says. While a few may be experimenting with street life, most have left families in stress and sometimes situations of physical, mental or sexual abuse. Caregivers may be dealing with addictions, mental health issues or problems arising from challenging economic times.

“Kids who are homeless are homeless for a reason, though we don’t always know what that is,” says Ellie James, manager of Youth & Family Services for the Boys & Girls Club, whose client-centred care home model matches young people in need with a nurturing home environment in the community. Muldoon points out that many of these homeless youth he sees have not been involved with police and are not heavy drug users; in fact, many are in school or working – more of his referrals are coming through area schools than ever before. If there is a common denominator with today’s at-risk youth, it is anxiety and a range of undiagnosed disorders that prevents them from achieving independence, he says. Some homeless youth emerge after “aging out” from the provincial care system at 19, finding themselves without a roof over their heads, Muldoon says. He points to one study indicating that about 40 to 45 per cent of the youth who have been in care will end up on the street within two years, a problem B.C. Child and Youth Representative Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond is seeking to bring under her mandate to try to remedy, he says. Today, with research suggesting young people’s brains are still developing into young adulthood, it makes more sense to provide care until age age 25, as is currently proposed in Ontario, Muldoon says. Greater Victoria has some youthfocused accommodations, such as the Boys & Girls Club’s care homes, Pandora “Y” Youth Apartments and temporary shelters run by the Youth Empowerment Soci-

It’s believed more than 600 young people are experiencing homelessness in Greater Victoria. Some are visible on the streets, others hidden in inadequate or precarious housing.

ety and Beacon Services, as well as youth-specific services providing health care and support services. But a disconnect remains in providing a seamless level of response to the growing demand of youth in need. And the related costs of poorly housed youth, such as healthcare and policing, are significantly higher than the costs of subsidized youth housing, Muldoon says. “Long-term, stable housing is the pillar of getting youth

out of trouble; it is what the region most desperately needs to give at-risk youth time to make safe, reasonable decisions and just to grow-up,” he says. “Even more, we want to make sure that today’s at-risk youth don’t become tomorrow’s adult homeless population. Providing long-term transitional housing for youth is simply a good investment to preventing difficult homelessness issues down the road.”

How can you help? • Get involved in the discussion around homelessness and the needed services. • Volunteer – a variety of opportunities are available at organizations around the Capital Region.

• Donations of food, clothing, supplies and money to provide services are essential to help community organizations continue their much-needed work.

Boys & Girls Club provides safe, caring homes for youth in need Sometimes a listening ear can make all the difference in the life of a young person who may feel the world is against them. That caring, client-centred approach is the cornerstone of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Victoria’s youth housing program, says Ellie James, manager of youth and family services for the Boys & Girls’ Club of Greater Victoria. Operating on a care home model, the program places a young person with a family in the community who “Our expectation wants to provide a safe, nurturing environment. is that they provide Typically the youth are a safe, supportive referred through judicial environment for or health services, but could come from other that child.

With the new Youth Justice Act, for example, “the kids are not getting into the system as early as they used to, so when they do come in they are often farther down the continuum.” Many of the family supports typical of earlier decades have also disappeared. Youth no longer have extended family nearby and the resources available to families experiencing challenges have fallen victim to budget cuts. “We’re trying to do more with less and the youth do pay.” On the positive side, “there has been a lot of research into trauma and trauma-informed practices,” James says. “We know that people no not start to heal unless they feel safe, so for youth, we know they need to be in a safe, secure environment before they can start dealing with those issues. That’s where our care home model, when it works, is really amazing. (We see) the youth re-engaging in school and attendance and participation rates soar.” For those interested in becoming a care home family with the Boys & Girls Club, “our expectation is that they provide a safe, supportive environment for that child,” James says. “We have a wide range of families, from families with kids to couples who have just retired. We don’t expect experts,” James emphasizes. “We want caring homes.” For more information, call the Boys and Girls Club at 250-384-9133.

Are you fed up with taxes? At Dodd’s we are too!

IN BRIEF

We’ve gotten together and kicked the “Tax Man” to the curb! Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca MP lobbies for riding name change

For the FIRST TIME in Dodd’s Furniture & Mattress History, 35 YEARS...

Looking to better reflect the geographic diversity of his riding, Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca MP Randall Garrison submitted a motion this week to change its name to Esquimalt-SaanichSooke. The national Electoral Boundaries Commission looking at riding boundary changes has proposed the realigned constituency be renamed Saanich-Juan de Fuca. “While I was glad to see the commission accepted my recommendation that Saanich be included in the riding name, I feel retaining Juan de Fuca in the name will only create confusion,” Garrison said, pointing to the provincial riding of Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca. The motion will be debated by the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs and if agreed to, will be passed along to the commission for a final decision later this year.

New Oak Bay High project to break ground this summer The design and construction of a new Oak Bay High will begin after the Greater Victoria School District selects one of three construction firms bidding on the project. Victoria-based Farmer Construction, Yellowridge Design Build of Port Moody and Bouygues Building Canada, a subsidiary of France-based Bouygues Group, have been invited to prepare and submit comprehensive proposals to the school district. The district will evaluate each submission and will select the proposal “offering the greatest value for the benefit of the students and the community, within the approved capital funding.” With a project cost estimated at $50.1million, the school will accommodate 1,300 students and be built on the same property as the current school. The school district anticipates construction to start this summer.

Doug Curran with trophies earned during decades of drag racing and car shows.

Lengthy hot rod & racing history keeps car enthusiast revved up When I went to visit long-time hot rodder Doug Curran in Aldergrove, I asked when he had finished his 1940 Ford coupe. “This morning,” he replied. “But I still have ALYN EDWARDS to make the windshield CLASSIC wipers work before RIDES it’s completely done.” He agreed it was time the car was ready for the road. He has owned it since 1976. Doug’s fleet of exotic hot rods includes the 1934 Ford sedan he originally bought for $200 back in 1969. It was an old Vancouver hot rod with the roof chopped and lowered in 1957. The original builder had installed the entire running gear from a 1956 Buick. When Doug bought the car, it had no grille, radiator or hood. He completely rebuilt the car, installed a Chevrolet V8 engine, had it painted bright green, started to drive it and enter it in car cars shows beginning in 1976 – the same year he obtained the 1940 Ford coupe. He has driven his 1934 Ford sedan hot rod more than 300,000 kilometres all over North America. In 1979 alone, the car travelled almost 15,000 kilometres and has made 18 trips to California over the years. “The car has taken us to family reunions, vacations and street rod shows all over Western Canada and the western states.” It was 37 years ago that the retired sawmill electrician traded a 1938 Chevrolet coupe for the 1940 Ford coupe owned by his brother-in-law. “He definitely got the better of the deal,” Doug recalls. The Ford coupe was very rough. He had no available inside space so he stored it outside where it would remain for the next 30 years. Doug spent the years collecting parts for the car. He was determined to build the hot rod true to the era of the early 1960s. He began a complete body rebuild six years ago, making and installing the

Doug Curran’s 1941 Ford Cab Over Engine (COE) hot rod alongside his 1934 Ford pickup, 1934 Ford sedan and 1940 Ford coupe. When Doug Curran sat in a midget racer at the age of 10, he knew racing would be in his future.

floor, body panels, door bottoms, hood corners and other pieces in his wellequipped machine shop. “The car was so rotten, there is very little left of the original body. I even had to make new rain gutters and install them,” he says. Nothing on this car is newer than 1965. It’s powered by a 327 cubic inch V8 engine from a 1964 Corvette coupled to a super T10 four-speed transmission with two-piece scatter shield common in 1960s drag racers. The nine-inch differential came from a 1965 Ford pickup. Cosmetic modifications include a gas door from a 1947 Ford, a 1959 Oldsmobile steering wheel and a century-old stiletto for a floor-mounted gear shifter. He credits his friend Doug Rutherford Jr. with the help needed to complete this project. Doug Curran has suffered with Parkinson’s disease for the past 14 years. He’s convinced that the days and nights spent in his shop working on his hot rods have limited the progression of the disease and kept him going. “Every time I drive my hot rod, I feel 16 again. It’s like putting on an old pair of slippers,” he says.

From an early age, Doug Curran loved old cars. His father was a heavy duty mechanic and he used his dad’s tools to build mechanical skills. He sat in a sprint race car at the age of 10 and knew racing would be in his future. At age 12 he was really impressed with his cousin’s 1934 Ford coupe hot rod and was working on cars by age 14. He bought a 1953 Chevrolet sedan for his first attempt at a hot rod. Then he stuffed a Chrysler 354 hemi engine into a 1961 Dodge for his next bid at speed. His first real hot rod was a based on a 1930 Essex coupe. At age 20, Doug got serious about racing, buying a 1956 Chevrolet BelAir two-door sedan for serious drag racing at Mission Raceways. His brother built Continued on Pg. B3

a similar race car to enter quarter-mile race competition. Doug has a collection of almost every edition of Rod & Custom and Hot Rod Magazine published and has owned hundreds of cars. But his first love continues to be old Ford hot rods which led to the acquisition of a 1934 Ford truck that had been used to haul fruit in the Okanagan. The name of the original owner was still on the door: W.A. Mackenzie – Peachland. He completely rebuilt the truck with a new chassis and hand-built box to be a comfortable reliable cruiser powered by a Buick V6 engine. But his truck masterpiece is a 1941 Ford COE (cab over engine) with an interesting B.C. history. It was purchased new by the Vancouver branch of the Red Cross for use during the war years. In 1947, the truck was acquired by Victor Dadswell who used it to haul supplies from Vancouver to his hardware store in Lillooet. The truck was taken off the road in 1959. “I bought the truck 30 years ago and it took 16 of those years to build it,” Doug says. The well-engineered truck has a modern chassis and suspension. It’s powered by a high-performance Chevrolet 468 cubic engine mounted ‘mid ship’ behind the cab. The engine is covered by what looks like a sleeper unit behind the cab which tilts up to reveal the engine with the push of a button. Doug sometimes pulls a 25-foot fifth-wheel trailer with the truck. Doug’s next project is going to be very different. “I’m going to rebuild an old super-modified stock car,” he says. “But it’s going to be yard art. The top of the engine is going to lift up and there will be a barbecue inside. It will sit on my patio.”

Doug Curran’s 1941 Ford Cab Over Engine (COE) truck was originally purchased by the Red Cross to haul supplies in Vancouver during the Second World War. What looks like a sleeper behind the cab tilts up to reveal a high horsepower 468 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 engine.

Stem Cell Activator

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immuno-suppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor #63 summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage.

The 2014 Kia Rondo was unveiled at the recent Canadian International Auto Show.

All-new Kia Rondo provides European style and versatility METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

The all-new Kia Rondo is designed and engineered from a clean sheet to meet the needs of modern families with sleek aerodynamics and a world-class design, blending contemporary and distinctive exterior styling with a fresh, trendy interior. From the ground up, the Rondo is a completely new model. Its sleek and sculpted design marks a dramatic shift away from the look of its predecessor. The Rondo continues to build on the functionality, flexibility, adaptability and versatility that the Rondo is known for, namely its availability of five or sevenpassenger seating. Beneath the hood there is a new 2.0-litre gasoline direct injection (GDI) four-cylinder engine, producing an estimated 164 hp and 156 lb/ft of torque, using either a six-speed manual or an available six-speed automatic transmission. The new automatic delivers faster acceleration from low speeds and greater refinement at

high speeds. While the Rondo is a familyfocused vehicle, driver comfort in every model is assured thanks to the tilt-and-telescopic adjustable steering wheel, height adjustable driver’s seat and the adoption of an organ type accelerator pedal pivoting on the floor, matching the natural movement of a foot engaging a control pedal. Standard interior features on the 2014 Rondo includes air conditioning, second row heating and cooling air vents, power windows, heated front seats, a six speaker audio system and keyless entry with power locks. The 2014 Rondo has a full suite of advanced active safety, features such as standard electronic stability control (ESC), hill-start assist control (HAC), four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist system (BAS), electronic brake distribution and Kia’s advanced Vehicle Stability Management System (VSM), which assists in under and over steer conditions as well as in split-traction braking situations.
