ave and Rebekah Campbell are used to the daily routine that goes along with having five kids. The couple scramble to get nine-yearold twins Owen and Emma, Kate, 6, Sara, 4, and Molly, 2, ready for bed each night. It’s a production line of showers and brushing teeth and tucking them into bed. except on days when Molly is undergoing chemotherapy. Or blood transfusions. Or a bone marrow transplant in a foreign city. Those are the routines the Campbells wish they never knew. The family has spent the majority of Molly’s life battling her acute lymphoblastic leukemia in Victoria, at B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and now in Memphis, Daniel Palmer Tenn. Reporting For the past month they’ve been living in a rented apartment near world-renowned St. Jude’s Hospital. Molly underwent a second stem cell transplant there Jan. 30, with doctors harvesting her mother’s bone marrow as part of an experimental treatment protocol. The return of the disease last November, following Molly’s first transplant in 2011 at B.C. Children’s, devastated the Campbells. But it has helped their youngest child to have the entire family together, Dave said. “The (three oldest) kids go to school from nine to three every day, so they get a bit of an escape,” he said.

Fatal fire investigation remains inconclusive Fire investigators can’t pinpoint what started a Feb. 16 fire which caused the death of three people. But none of the surviving residents of the large character home at 1320 Johnson St. remember hearing smoke alarms sounding.

Investigators did confirm the fire began on the porch of the heritage home, but couldn’t say whether a couch fire from earlier in the evening was to blame. The home’s older-style “balloon frame” construction meant the fire

spread quickly to the upper level. The building had no fire-stops between floors, said fire Insp. Megan Sabell. Emily Grace Morin, 20, Georgia Paige Klap, 22 and Mark Mitchell, 26 died as a result of the blaze. dpalmer@vicnews.com

COMMUNITY NEWS IN BRIEF

Dress in blue, help fight cancer Office workers and schoolchildren around the region are wearing blue today (March 1) and other days this month to highlight colorectal cancer awareness month in Canada. The disease, commonly known as colon or bowel cancer, is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the country. Of the 23,300 men and women who are diagnosed annually, on average, 9,200 will die. Much like prostate cancer, colorectal cancer is very treatable if caught in time. To find out about organizing a Wear Blue Day fundraiser or learning about the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada, visit colorectal-cancer.ca.

Maritime exhibit spotlights Chinese The contribution of Chinese Canadians to B.C’s maritime heritage is celebrated in a new exhibit at the Maritime Museum of B.C. in Bastion Square. Floating on the Margins: Chinese Life on the Canadian Pacific Passenger Liners, combines artifacts from the museum and the University of B.C.’s Chung Collection to illustrate the lives of early Chinese crew and passengers on the CP vessels. The Chung Collection is one of North America’s most extensive collections on early immigration and settlement history in B.C. The Victoria exhibit was created in celebration of the 155th anniversary of Victoria’s Chinatown.

A life well lived, a degree well deserved UVic works in overdrive to award PhD to student with terminal cancer Edward Hill News staff

As an engineer and passionate environmentalist, Trevor Williams was one of those guys who spent every spare moment trying to spread the bright ideas of sustainability and conservation. He and his wife, Valerie, had helped launch the Oak Bay Green Committee and a soft plastics recycling depot in their adopted municipality. They spoke to students around the region on ideas to make the planet better. He was well on his way to receiving his PhD in mechanical engineering and starting a new job at an aerospace firm in Germany, when regular life just stopped. In November, the 47-year-old native of Wales was diagnosed with terminal cancer. On Jan. 11, he died in Royal Jubilee Hospital. But in the week before his death, his colleagues and academic administrators at the University of Victoria worked at institutional light speed to make sure Williams received his doctorate. After his diagnosis, one of Williams’ final wishes was to complete his PhD, which focused on modelling how smart electrical grids could manage irregular renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind. His advisor, assistant professor Curran Crawford, and mechanical engineering department chair professor Zuomin Dong visited Williams in hospital on Friday Jan. 4, and set into motion one of the fastest turnarounds of a dissertation to convocation in UVic history. Williams had completed the bulk of his degree work, but his dissertation needed a formal defence. After a frenetic weekend assembling his papers, on Monday morning Crawford and Dong pressed Williams’ case with the deans of engineering and graduate studies. That night two professors formally presented Williams’ body of research to the deans. “We examined the quality and quantity of his work,” Dong said. “We recognized that he made a real contribution to the field ... there was more than enough original contribution to justify a PhD.”

With his wife Valerie next to him, Trevor Williams, left, shakes the hand of mechanical engineering professor Zuomin Dong during a convocation ceremony for Williams at Royal Jubilee Hospital. The 47-year-old formally received his PhD in mechanical engineering, and passed away the next day. That night the dean of graduate studies wrote a memo to the UVic vice-president academic (Provost) and the senate committee on academics articulating the high quality of Williams’ work and requested the degree be granted. Early Tuesday morning the senate committee and Provost held an emergency meeting, and Dong was astonished to find the PhD signed and framed in his office by 10:30 a.m. “In 24 hours the university came out with the degree. I was very impressed,” Dong said. Two days later on Jan. 10, 60 friends, colleagues and family crowded the seventh floor of the Jubilee Hospital for a special convocation ceremony, where David Capson, dean of the faculty of graduate studies, awarded Williams his doctorate of mechanical engineering. “It was a very beautiful ceremony. Many friends and family, lots of the university community and colleagues and PhD advisors. It was quite lovely,” Valerie Williams said. “The

university did an extraordinary thing. It doesn’t happen all that often. It speaks to how well liked Trevor was and how extraordinary his work was.” Williams passed away the next day, surrounded by his friends and family, including his two brothers and mother who arrived from Wales two days earlier. “What surprised me more than anything is the overwhelming support he received from the university to make his dream fulfilled at the end of his life,” Valerie said. “Everybody helped. It wasn’t just his PhD advisors, it was the administration and fellow students who said Trevor deserved his PhD. He was well loved. “I kept reminding him that in the end, he lived an extraordinary life and contributed so much to the planet and community. He lived a life most people only dream of, just shorter than expected.” editor@saanichnews.com

Songhees sign land deal with province Daniel Palmer News staff

The Songhees Nation is celebrating its first concrete land agreement since negotiations began with the province nearly 20 years ago. The roughly 500 Songhees citizens will receive three Crown land parcels in the deal: a 0.14-hectare site at Admirals and Esquimalt roads, currently occupied by a B.C. liquor store; the 0.04-hectare Provincial Capital Commission headquarters on Pandora Avenue; and

a 0.10-hectare parking lot on Michigan Street between Parry and Powell streets in James Bay. “Acquiring these key commercial properties opens the door for the Songhees Nation to enjoy economic benefits within our territory,” said Songhees Coun. Gary Albany. “We look forward to managing these lands and the acquisition of more.” No decisions have been made yet on the disposition of the properties. But the Songhees will be subject to local taxation, and if the band develops any of the sites, zoning bylaws

and provincial and federal laws. At the signing of the agreement at the legislature on Tuesday, minister of aboriginal relations and reconciliation Ida Chong said the agreement was a long time coming. “Songhees Nation is working diligently to develop jobs and other economic opportunities that will contribute to a prosperous future for its citizens and the surrounding region,” Chong said. The Songhees are currently in the fourth of six stages of the B.C. treaty process, and base their land claims

on the original Douglas Treaties signed between 1850 and 1854. Five First Nations, known collectively as the Te’mexw Treaty Association, signed agreements with the province for transfer of Crown land. The association includes T’Sou-ke (Sooke), Scia’new (Beecher Bay), Snaw-naw-as (Nanoose) Malahat and Songhees Nations. dpalmer@vicnews.com PLEASE SEE: Our View, Page A8

UVic, VIHA top diversity employers

Family making the best of situation

Two Capital Region employers are being recognized for their efforts in creating diverse workplaces. Vancouver Island Health Authority and University of Victoria made Mediacorp’s Top 100 Diversity Employers list for 2013. The national ranking, now in its seventh year, looks at hiring levels among five groups to determine the list: women of visible minorities, persons with disabilities, aboriginal peoples and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered/transsexuals (LGBT).

“But it’s hard to focus on the day-to-day when you’re always – in the back of your mind – waiting for the other shoe to drop. Our lives change in an instant, depending on the results we get on these tests.” The Campbells will find out in the coming days if this latest treatment is showing signs of success. In the meantime, friends back home are organizing a silent auction for tomorrow (March 2) to ease some of the financial strain of living in the U.S. “The family said they needed prayers, but it’s a couple of months down the road now,” said auction organizer Amanda Turner. “There just wasn’t anything else we could do except raise money.” Turner has collected more than 80 auction items, including beauty products, gift certificates, Rifflandia music festival passes and even a box

“We are particularly proud of our work in the area of aboriginal employment,” VIHA CEO Howard Waldner said in a statement. VIHA and the B.C.

OUR VIEW

Land settlement a solid next step Was the B.C. Liberal government’s trotting out of local First Nations leaders to sign another treaty this week a case of pre-election grandstanding? Or was it the legitimate announcement of the latest significant step in the B.C. treaty process? Probably a little of both. Regardless of the timing of the transfer of lands to five First Nations, including the Songhees, aboriginal communities stand to benefit greatly from the deal signed Tuesday at the B.C. legislature. The properties signed over to the Songhees, for example, include the current site of a government liquor store at Esquimalt and Admirals roads, the Provincial Capital Commission office building on Pandora Avenue and a parking lot in James Bay. The deal does not exempt the bands from paying property tax, but the acquisition price is right. The potential economic foothold the Songhees and others gain as landlords, developers or vendors could be significant – they can manage the properties how they see fit, within local rules and regulations. The key word here is potential. Governments, business and individuals can help empower our aboriginal communities and enhance self-sufficiency through the transfer of lands, offering business coaching services, buying handcrafted products or even mentoring youth. From there, First Nations need to take the next steps themselves. It’s already happening in some areas. The Songhees are well into the construction of their $16-million health, administration and recreation centre in Esquimalt. And they are partners with Esquimalt Nation in Salish Sea Industrial Services, a marine-based company. Adding a trio of revenue properties to the mix – if managed well – could further stabilize our aboriginal communities through creating long-term employment for people who have struggled to find work. The first concrete land agreement in 20 years for the Songhees shows progress in the willingness of the province and First Nations leaders to do what it takes to move closer to finalizing settlements. It also shows more trust in First Nations that they can be good stewards of urban lands, not just those around reserves. What do you think?

transportation planning was divided between municipalities and provincial ministries. Much like Greater Victoria’s current challenges, decision-making was not integrated with land-use planning and was contributing to uncoordinated growth and urban sprawl, which was straining the transportation network. Translink is the first North American transportation authority responsible for the planning, financing and managing of all public transit in addition to major regional roads, bridges, and cycling infrastructure. Although Greater Victoria is much smaller than Vancouver, the issue remains the same: our region needs a single governing agency that has the authority and appropriate funding to create an integrated transportation plan that spans municipalities and means of travel. Continuing to make individual plans for roads, transit, cycling, infrastructure and rail will never give us an efficient system. Moreover, the Capital Regional District’s proposition to assume the authority and powers of the Transit Commission is not the solution to this problem, as it is only shifting responsibility for transit planning, without joining it with overall transportation planning. In order to move towards an efficient regional model, we need a single, united authority that can create an integrated plan. Only with such a regional authority can our transportation system efficiently meet the needs of all of Greater Victoria’s residents. Bruce Carter is CEO of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce.

Ex-Liberal MLA backs up former colleague Clark We live in a province that has weathered the downturn, has a stellar financial record, enjoys low taxes, good health care, a strong education system and has sunny economic prospects. But listen to the news and it seems every day is a constant hum of negativity about Premier Christy Clark and her government. The pounding of our premier is relentless. Sure, she’s made mistakes, she’ll be the first to admit

that. But look at what she has achieved. She won the leadership of her party with only 1 of 49 MLAs supporting her. She had to work with a wounded caucus, deal with her predecessor’s baggage and rebuild. Right off the bat she was derided by the NDP, the pundits and armchair critics as Premier Photo-op. It didn’t matter that she raised the minimum wage, brought in a jobs plan, won a major shipbuilding contract,

rewrote family law legislation, or introduced a commendable budget that held the line on spending. The (sexist) narrative was established. Everything from comments about her cleavage to patronizing claptrap from the good old (mostly) boys. They didn’t expect her to keep powering on. She renewed her cabinet. She has recruited an exceptional group of new candidates. She brought in a balanced budget and made tough

decisions, some tougher than her predecessor was prepared to make. Meanwhile, where is the scrutiny of Adrian Dix and the NDP? Here we are, less than 12 weeks from election day and Dix has evaded any serious discussion of his plans. He has carefully cultivated a ‘serious’ image, but there’s nothing serious about the results. He’s said nothing, refuses to show his cards. Let’s remember

this is a man who backdated a memo while chief of staff to then-premier Glen Clark and was forced to resign over it. So, why do we only hear one side of the story? Let’s make this a fair playing field, it’s time for some serious media scrutiny on the NDP. As each day ticks down to election day, it’s a free day for Adrian Dix to say nothing. Sheila Orr Saanich

Readers respond: WiFi, smart meters, post-secondary research, recycling Investigate wireless for future news story Re: Questions remain on wireless effects, but evidence growing (Letters, Feb. 8) Tammy Jeske’s letter raised some compelling questions and prompted me to check the two references she gave. She wrote, essentially, that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including those emitting from wireless phones, as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” (Group 2B). She also pointed to WorkSafeBC’s occupational health and safety regulations, which state: if an IARC Group 2B substance “is present in the workplace, the employer must replace it, if practicable, with a material which reduces the risk to workers.” In short, the references provided checked out with information available on the IARC and WorkSafeBC websites. For schools in B.C., the obvious implication is that wireless connections must be replaced, if practicable, with wired connections. “Possibly carcinogenic” is certainly not conclusive, but it is safe to

assume that the label is not provided without good reason and evidence. I also wonder how many schools and workplaces are in contravention of the OHS regulations – and what WorkSafeBC has to say on the issue. This is a good story for a media investigation, whatever the outcome. In our culture, so many of us automatically give technology the benefit of the doubt since it meets so many needs quickly and cheaply. But when agencies that understand these issues better than most of us are applying labels like “possibly carcinogenic,” it is prudent to better understand what we know and don’t know about REFs. As a user of computers with a wireless connection, a smart phone and smart meter, it would be an article I would like to read. Michael McGee Victoria

Omissions noteworthy in smart meters letter Re: B.C. Hydro responds to attack on its smart meter technology (Letters, Feb. 22) Gary Murphy clearly stated many positive benefits of smart meters. But he neglected to

inform us what would happen to the considerable savings B.C. Hydro will make after the elimination of meter reader positions. Will the customer see any of those savings? He also did not mention if B.C. Hydro intended to follow the European model, where customers are billed proportionally to the demand and cost of generation. Hence, electricity is significantly more expensive during peak periods and cheaper overnight. I cannot think the benefits he mentions on their own are worth the significant capital expenditure. I fear a cost hike is to come. Tim Whitehouse Victoria

Do your homework before post-secondary Before anyone considers post-secondary education, find something you are passionate about and determine what career helps fulfill that passion. If it is trades training, look at what sector or industry needs skilled workers. If you are considering an undergraduate degree, research where the growth is and for pity’s sake, think about co-operative

education as a way to earn income and enhance your CV. If you don’t have money saved up, don’t want to take out a student loan and cannot access the bank of mom and dad, think about the Canadian Forces. And if you don’t really want to work, but love to talk, go into politics. I’m passionate about theatre, so the University of Victoria’s program was for me. But I went into it heads up, eyes open, accepting it would be challenging to find work afterward. By all means take advice, but take responsibility for your own future and do your own research. After all, it’s you who must work at that job – not your parents or anyone else. Lisa Perry Victoria

Columnist hits the mark in expanding recycling Re: Recycling alone is not enough (Column, Feb. 22) Congratulations to Charla Huber for her excellent editorial on the impending closure of our landfill. Rather than the usual guilt-tripping, sky-is-falling, handwringing impotence that usually accompanies environmental calamity reporting, Ms. Huber has shown us that we can all

make a difference with concrete examples of waste reduction from her personal life. Recycling is the last of the 3R’s. The first two are reduce and reuse. I would love to see Ms. Huber have a regular column where she shows us how to make our own laundry soap, dish detergent and tooth paste. I think many people are ready to do something about the crisis we are in. Small changes collectively add up to big changes. Jim Pine Saanich

Moura: the future of Fado Ana Moura, whose riveting interpretation of Portugal’s captivating fado style has won her an international following, brings her soulful voice and intense stage presence to Victoria. Akin to the blues in its stoic response to suffering and loss, the Portuguese fado is in the midst of a renaissance, and Moura is one of the music’s brightest young stars. Her fourth album, Leva-me aos Fados, is a world music sensation that went triple-platinum in Portugal and reached seventh on Billboard’s Top World Albums chart. She was also nominated in the best artist category in the 2011 Songlines Music Awards (formerly known as BBC Music Awards). Moura’s rapid ascent to stardom has seen her perform in major concert halls and festivals all over the world and made fans and collaborators of The Rolling Stones and Prince, who traveled to Lisbon to work with her. Her most recent accolade was representing Portugal, at the invitation of Caetano Veloso, to participate on his 70th birthday tribute record,

Um Tributo a Caetano Veloso, joining the likes of Chrissie Hynde, Beck, Os Mutantes, Seu Jorge and others. On her new album Desfado (produced by the multi-Grammy producer Larry Klein - Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock, Madeleine Peyroux, Tracy Chapman), Moura stretches her talent beyond the limitations of traditional fado in every area. For the first time she sings in English, as well as her native Portuguese, performing songs written in traditional fado form, as well as songs such as Joni Mitchell’s A Case Of You, which embody the spirit of the Portuguese music, while not being in the traditional sense of the genre. Victoria’s own Sara Marreiros opens with her strong, expressive voice in a range of musical styles accompanied by bassist Trav Short. Tickets, $36 or $40 at the door, to An Evening with Ana Moura at the Alix Goolden Hall, on March 5, at 7:30 p.m are available at brownpapertickets.com, Ditch Records, 784 Fort St. and Lyle’s Place, 770 Yates St. For more information go to anamoura.com.pt or threesixtyentertainment.ca. llavin@vicnews.com

Downtown dangers downplayed by VicPD Daniel Palmer

Are you fed up with taxes? At Dodd’s we are too! We’ve gotten together and kicked the “Tax Man” to the curb! For the FIRST TIME in Dodd’s Furniture & Mattress History, 35 YEARS...

News staff

When Nolan Belfe heard someone say “gunshots,” he thought it was all part of the show. Belfe, 19, and friend Cole Denton, 20, were crammed against the front of the stage to watch rap duo Heavy Metal Kings perform an encore at Club 9one9 on Monday night. Outside, a barrage of bullets was unleashed from a passing vehicle at 1 a.m., sending a bouncer to hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. Staff ordered everyone out the back door onto Courtney Street. “Nobody really knew what was happening at first,” said Denton, whose father works for News publisher Black Press. “It’s definitely shocking to see it happen in Victoria.” Belfe added: “I feel like it’s getting a bit riskier downtown, not a safe city anymore.” Not true, said VicPD Const. Mike Russell. “Since 2008, there’s been a massive decrease in the amount of violent crime downtown,” he said. While 2012 numbers have yet to be released, Russell said the BarWatch program, where patron IDs are scanned and checked against a database of known gang members and people with violent crime convictions, has been successful. A task force on downtown safety in 2009 also led to an additional four officers being stationed downtown Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Reynolds secondary is the smallest wrestling team in town. But it has two things most Greater Victoria schools don’t: a place to train, and willing coaches. Because of that, they were able to host members of the only other teams, Esquimalt High and the school district Victoria Bulldogs, for training last week. “The room could be bigger, but I’m not complaining,� said Reynolds coach Michael Cappus. The former CIS champion came from wrestlingmad Alberni district secondary and competed for Simon Fraser University.

Jamie Cassels Undergraduate Research Awards (JCURA) Fair

Kathleen passed peacefully to be with her Lord on February 15, 2013. Kathleen was born in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, and grew up in Karneety/Castlerock, Northern Ireland. It was in Northern Ireland that she met and married her first husband, Kenneth Hemphill. She had an adventurous spirit and wanted to immigrate. She decided on Canada and immigrated to Toronto with her young family on October 18, 1960. Kathleen worked hard outside of the home while simultaneously being a wonderful mother and wife. She later married Allan Sawrie, and they moved into semi-retirement to Victoria, BC. Not one to stay idle, Kathleen subsequently went back to work and was employed with the Provincial Government in the Department of Mines for approximately ten years. Despite the assurance that we will be re-united in heaven, her entire family will feel her loss in our lives. Kathleen will be lovingly remembered by her family, including her husband, Allan, sons, Trevor and Alan (Mary) Hemphill, daughter, Maryann (John) Howard and grandchildren, Brittany, Lindsey, Jennifer, Karissa, Alanna, and Candace. Kathleen was predeceased by her mother Margaret, father Charlie, and her brothers, Bob (Bobbie) and Charlie (Jr). Her family in Northern Ireland are also feeling her loss, especially her sister Margaret (Jimmy) and her sister’s children Roberta, David and Raymond. A small memorial service for family and close friends will be held in Surrey on March 3, 2013. For further information please contact John and Maryann Howard in Langley. Flowers are graciously declined, but if you wish to honour her, please send a gift to the Cedar Hill Lodge in Langley, BC. The family would also like to thank the nurses and care aids at Cedar Hill for taking such good care of Kathleen in the last year. You were a blessing to us.

Glen Morrow with the 1938 Chevrolet he has owned for 50 years and raced at the original Mission Drag Strip in the 1960s.

Canada’s best-looking tow truck The payload? A car that has been drag racing for half a century The tow truck voted in as Canada’s bestlooking rig and featured on the cover of Tow Canada magazine in a cross-Canada “beauty contest” is a 1959 Chevrolet Spartan ALYN EDWARDS five-ton unit owned by CLASSIC Surrey’s Glen Morrow. RIDES The truck started life in the Fraser Valley as a fire pumper truck that had travelled only 12,000 miles. But it’s radically different now. It took Glen two and a half years to build the truck the first time with power from a modern 468 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 engine. But he couldn’t afford to drive it. So he tore it all apart and spent further three and a half years rebuilding it to be more powerful and economical. The operator of the S.W.A.T Four Wheel Drive Centre a block from the intersection of Fraser Highway and 152 Street in Surrey rebuilt the truck alongside the vehicles he builds and repairs for customers. Although the truck is used daily as a tow truck, the craftsmanship and attention to detail make it a show-stopper wherever it is displayed. The truck frame was lengthened four feet to accommodate the modern JerrDan tilt roll back deck with hydraulic wheel lift to tow a second vehicle. The six-wheel-drive heavy hauler is powered by a twin turbocharged 550 horsepower six-cylinder Cummins diesel with a six-speed Allison double overdrive automatic transmission taken from a street sweeper. The conventional hydraulic brakes are supplemented with an electromagnetic unit from a Prevost

Glen Morrow with the 1959 Chevrolet Spartan voted Canada’s best-looking tow truck. This 1938 Chevrolet was turned into a drag car by Glen Morrow after he bought the one-owner car from a North Vancouver car dealer 50 years ago.

tour bus that can stop the fully loaded tow truck weighing 38,000 pounds travelling at highway speed in three seconds. Glen grew up in North Burnaby in a family with five younger sisters. His father was a welder and Glen had his own welding equipment by the time he was 16. His first car was an underpowered 1952 Austin Somerset. Glen was an early member of the Burnaby Dragons Car Club and is member 28 of the BC Hot Rod Association. He cut the front of the Austin

completely off and installed the front frame, suspension and engine from a 1950 Chevrolet sedan delivery. When that wasn’t enough power, he installed a modern Chevrolet V8 engine to turn his sedate Austin into a hot rod. He became a welder in the boat building business and built Relic’s aluminum log salvage boat used in the television series Beachcombers filmed at Gibsons and seen all over the world. Continued on Pg.

Glen Morrow Continued from Pg. B1

The 1938 Chevrolet (right) competed at Mission, Cobble Hill and Washington State drag strips.

That Chrysler Marine 440 cubic inch V8powered jet boat would go right over log booms and travel at more than 100 kilometres an hour. He got into four wheel drive vehicles when he built a Chevrolet V8 powered Jeep to compete in sand drags as a hobby. That eventually morphed into the four wheel drive repair business he has operated at the same site for 40 years. Glen’s favourite “payload” for his 54-yearold Chevrolet tow truck is the 1938 Chevrolet Master sedan drag racer he bought and built 50 years ago. The car is a time capsule and is still the way it was when he raced it at the original Mission Race Track in the mid1960s. “I went out one day and looked at cars in every car lot in the region,” he recalls. “I finally got to the Mander Chevrolet dealership in North Vancouver in the dark and saw a car that was taller than the rest.” That was the 1938 Chevrolet that was being sold to settle the estate of the original owner. Glen bought it for $250. The first time he drove the car over 50 miles per hour, the engine flew apart. He installed a hopped up 327 cubic engine coupled to an Oldsmobile Hydramatic four speed transmission to go drag racing. He raced the car at drag strips including

Mission and Cobble Hill in B.C. and Arlington, Kent, Puyallup and Bremerton in Washington State. His fastest time for the 3,300 pound car was 11.90 seconds elapsed time to cross the quarter-mile finish line at 120 miles per hour. He had no sponsorship and was only earning 50 cents an hour as a welder. National Hot Rod Association rule changes in 1969 made drag racing even more expensive. So Glen Morrow put his 1938 Chevrolet in the garage and devoted his time to work. Now a spry 70-year-old, the master welder, builder and fabricator shows no signs of slowing down. His current shop project is installing a high-horsepower V8 engine ‘mid ship’ in a Chevy pickup for an engine builder customer who wants to take his old shop truck drag racing. And he has built a new higher-horsepower engine for his 1938 Chevrolet drag car. He plans to celebrate 50 years of owning the car by taking it back to the drag strip “to have some fun with it again.”

Drive-smart tips to help save gas METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

As fuel prices continue to rise, consumers are starting to feel the pinch more and more. No need to worry, says the Car Care Council. A few simple and inexpensive vehicle maintenance tips can help alleviate the pain. The Car Care Council offers these gas-saving maintenance tips: • Keep your car properly tuned to improve gas mileage by an average of four per cent. • Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 per cent. • Replace dirty or clogged air filters and improve gas mileage by as much as 10 per cent. • Improve gas mileage by one to two per cent by using the manufacturer’s recommended grade of motor oil.

Glen Morrow was barely out of diapers when he started working on cars.

Alyn Edwards is a classic car enthusiast and partner in Peak Communicators, a Vancouver-based public relations company. aedwards@peakco.com

Hello-to-Spring Check Up Includes Oil Change and Comprehensive Check Up

Driving behavior also impacts fuel efficiency. The council offers these gas saving driving tips: • Observe the speed limit. Gas mileage decreases rapidly above 80 kph. • Avoid excessive idling. Idling gets zero miles per gallon. Warming up the vehicle for one or two minutes is sufficient. • Avoid quick starts and stops. Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by 33 per cent on the highway and five per cent in the city. • Consolidate trips. Several short trips taken from a cold start can use twice as much gas as one longer multipurpose trip. • Don’t haul unneeded items in the trunk. An extra 100 pounds in the trunk reduces fuel economy up to two per cent.

The all-new Bentley Flying Spur METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Bentley intends to establish a new luxury performance sedan benchmark with the launch of the Flying Spur. With its unrivalled blend of effortless driveability, exquisite luxury and craftsmanship, sculpted design and state-of-the-art technology, the new Flying Spur takes the worldwide success of its iconic predecessor further. Bentley’s most

powerful four-door model ever makes its global debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Bentley’s styling team has developed an athletic design for the new Flying Spur that combines traditional Bentley styling cues with a sporting stance and contemporary details. Powering the new Flying Spur is Bentley’s renowned 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine, coupled to a ZF eight-speed transmission. Developing 615 hp, the new Flying Spur features

more power than any other Bentley four-door in history. A 14-per-cent-improvement in the power-to-weight ratio over the outgoing model delivers a breathtaking 0-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds and a top-speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). In the modern Bentley tradition, power is delivered to the road via all-wheel drive with a 40:60 rearbiased torque split for a sure-footed, engaging drive in all road and weather conditions.

The new Volvo S60, V60 and XC60:

Major renewal boosts the appeal of the Volvo 60 cluster METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Scandinavian design is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surfaces with any unnecessary clutter removed. This is evident in the redesigned interior and exterior of the new 60 cars. Inside, the attention to detail, the authentic materials – such as wood and leather – and the easy-to-use controls contribute to the in-command driving experience. Supportive yet comfortable seats that ensure a fresh and relaxed arrival after the longest of journeys have been a

Volvo strength for decades. The buyer of a new S60, V60 or XC60 in R-Design specification now benefit from a new sport seat that retains this traditional comfort and makes a perfect addition to the in-command feel of a true driver’s car. The new dynamic S60 design, with its purposeful, dynamic appearance, accentuates the car’s sporting nature. Inside, there are upgrades such as new upholstery colours, new wood inlays, a new headliner, and the silk metal frames around the air vents and light controls. The new Volvo V60 is the car for

people who need the versatility of an estate but want the handling of a sports sedan – all in a stylish Scandinavian package. As with the new Volvo S60, the design team has increased the new V60’s road presence by emphasizing its horizontal lines, which visually connects the car directly to the road. At the heart of the extra versatility of the V60 is its intelligent seating. The rear seats can be folded down in three 40/20/40 segments, so that the rear 430 litres of load space can be supplemented quickly and easily.

The range of Volvo’s 60 series vehicles (S60 sedan shown) all benefit by extensive changes but all with a Scandinavian sense of balance and style.

More details of the production-ready Volkswagen Xl1 revealed METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Volkswagen has confirmed that its XL1 Super Efficient Vehicle, the most fuel-efficient production car in the world, with a fuel consumption value

of 0.9L/100 km (approx. 313 mpg) will go into production at the company’s Osnabrueck factory in Germany. Thanks to its plug-in hybrid system, the two-seater can also cover a distance of up to 50 km in all-electric mode and therefore with zero local emissions.
