EDITOR’S NOTE

Breaking up is hard to do

The perfect solution: feces? ecal transplants — they may be every bit as “icky” as the image conjured in your mind, but doctors have discovered the solution to overcoming stubborn infections and antibiotic super viruses may be simpler DANIELLE than we thought — and two POPE UVic students aim to spread news@ the word. mondaymag.com In the latest in a series of medical student presentations offered through the UVic’s Let’s Talk Science program, Island Medical Program firstyear students Khatereh Aminoltejari and Jessica Nathan will discuss how fecal transplants — using the feces of a healthy individual to restore a normal, healthy mix of bacteria in someone else — can be used in place of antibiotics, and how the transplants are fast becoming mainstream medical practice for the treatment of some stubborn infections. “Our guts contain a lot of bacteria which helps us break down everything in our gastrointestinal system. But antibiotics kill the good bacteria as well as bad, and what we’re seeing now are these super viruses that are immune to any treatment,” says Aminoltejari. In order to serve the seven-metre long intestine, 6-8 tablespoons of stool are mixed into one litre of saline solution. Particulates are removed, and the solution is then placed into syringes and applied either as an enema, or through the nasal gastric tube — yes, through your nose. Aminoltejari says that potential stool donors are identified by recipients, generally an intimate partner or adult family member. Just like in blood transfusions, prospective donors are screened to determine eligibility — a high enough bacteria count — and are tested for diseases like HIV, hepatitis, parasites and infections. Donors are excluded if they’ve taken antibiotics within 90 days of the procedure. “What’s so exciting about this is that it is such a natural answer,” says Aminoltejari. “It does have that ick factor, but this is very similar to a blood transfusion and when we’re seeing people being treated with antibiotics for problems that occurred from using antibiotics, we know there has got to be another answer.” Fecal transplants date back historically to a practice in veterinary medicine. Vets discovered that horses with infections unresponsive to other treatment would respond quickly and effectively to the transplants. Then, in 1956, doctors began successfully utilizing the transplants on humans in an effort to replace gut flora from severe infections. While the practice has become prevalent in the U.S. and Europe in treating aggressive infections like C. difficile, Canada is slowly catching up. Now, Aminoltejari says scientists are studying the effects

emember when shacking up was seen as a carefree way to enjoy the benefits of marriage without all the legal hassle? “If we get sick of each other, we can just walk away,” was the mantra. Of course, that casual attitude only applied so long as kids didn’t come along, or massive debt, or shared property. If your partner won the lottery and ran away with a younger model, well, at least you didn’t have to GRANT file for divorce. And if you were a same-sex couple, it McKENZIE wasn’t until recently that marriage was even a choice. However, that’s all changing with a modernization editor@ of B.C.’s family law known as the Family Law Act. mondaymag.com Like most laws, there is a lot going on under the hood, but basically if you have been living together for two years, you are considered to be spouses and will be treated the same as married couples. This means that any debt or profit you accumulate during the time of the relationship (new student loans, for example) is shared equally if you break up. Any debts brought into the relationship will remain with the individual, but any increases in debt become shared. The same with profit. If one half of a common-law couple owns a house, for example, that house remains with the individual. If, however, the property increases in value while the couple is living together, the profit becomes shared. Now, if you’ve ever had a bad breakup that’s ended up in court, you already know that breaking up can be hard to do. This new law, that came into effect on March 18, attempts to lay it out in simpler terms. If you don’t like the idea of a 50/50 split, you can still create your own legal document through a lawyer, which is best handled while you still like each other. Shacking up can still be a fun, commitment-light approach to starting a life together, but even if you don’t put a ring on it, after two years probation, you’re officially hooked. M

of the transplants on conditions from Irritable Bowl Syndrome to obesity, and even autism. “We have more bacteria in our bodies than we do human cells, and we are coming across an era of antibiotic resistance that has left us with not a lot of arsenal in our pockets. This really is the perfect solution — but more people do need to be aware of it as an option.” See “Fecal Transplants: Strange or Miracle Cure?” with Khatereh Aminoltejari and Jessica Nathan, Wed., March 27, noon-1pm at UVic’s Medical Sciences Building (Room 160, Ring Road). Admission is free and everyone is welcome. The term “family” has changed drastically in the last 34 years — a fact that the province of B.C. officially recognized this week when the new Family Law Act came into effect Mon., March 18, replacing the old Family Relations Act which had been in rule since 1979. “The Family Law Act is about addressing the needs of modern B.C. families and adapting to shifts in society,” says Minister of Justice and Attorney General Shirley Bond. “Most importantly, it’s about ensuring children’s interests and safety are given the utmost priority when families go through the emotional process of separation and divorce.” While the act has a strong focus on children, it also clarifies how property, debt and assets are to be divided in the event that common-law couples break up (See Editor’s Note for more details). The act was passed unanimously in B.C.’s legislature on Nov. 23, 2011. Changes were stimulated by the fact that common-law families in B.C. are growing at a rate four times faster than the number of married couples. There was also a noted rise in the number of children born in B.C. using assisted reproduction. Navigate through the changes: JusticeBC.ca. M

hen Canadians think of hockey cities, they envision Montreal, Edmonton or even Toronto — the one they never think of is Victoria. That’s because most Canadians don’t know that the modern game of professional ice hockey actually took shape in our city, starting with the Pacific Coast Hockey Association. And it’s all thanks to Lester and Frank Patrick, two of the most influential people in the history of the sport. The Patricks came to the coast from Nelson in 1911 — Frank to Vancouver and Lester to Victoria — with ambitions to build Canada’s first artificial ice arenas, lure the best players with huge salary promises and start their own hockey league backed with money from their father Joe’s lumber business. “It was a momentous decision,” writes Craig Bowlsby, hockey historian and Vancouver-born author of Empire of Ice: The Rise and Fall of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association, 1911-1926. “Three men had just sunk their entire family fortune into building a new professional hockey league, in a region where hockey normally occurred only one or two weeks of the year, if at all. There were no hockey areMARY ELLEN GREEN nas on the coast, let alone arts@mondaymag.com artificial ones, and at least half of the inhabitants had never seen the game.” The Patricks can also take credit for creating a number of game-changing rules: the blue line, forward passing, allowing the players to kick the puck (anywhere but into the net), the penalty shot, the wearing of numbered jerseys (to help fans identify their favourite players), the concept of “on-thefly” line changes, the playoffs, farm teams, crediting assists and much more. Empire of Ice is the first comprehensive written account of the creation, evolution and dissolution of the PCHA. It’s as much historical account as game commentary — providing insight into the teams’ players and play-by-play accounts of important games — as well as important statistics, photos and more. It also includes the first blow-by-blow account of the Victoria Aristocrats’ 1913 World Championship and the Victoria Cougars’ Stanley Cup victory against the Montreal Canadiens (of the National Hockey Association), March 30, 1925 at home in the old Willows (or Patrick) Arena on the corner of Fort and Epworth in Oak Bay. The Cougars was the last non-NHL team to ever win the coveted cup. (Fourteen years earlier, the Willows Arena hosted the very first professional hockey game ever played on artificial ice. The Vancouver Millionaires won the cup in 1915, defeating the Ottawa Senators at the Denman arena on Georgia Street, the largest indoor arena in the world at the time.) “The previous season, Seattle folded,” says Bowlsby. SCOTT PETERS “Lester swooped in and snapped Program from the 1926 Stanley Cup. up four of their best players, including a championship goalie … Victoria already had a solid team and suddenly they were loaded with a ton of talent. They became a powerhouse.” The entire four-game series is recounted in detail in the book. Victoria would go to the Stanley Cup finals again the following season, but would lose three games to one to the Montreal Maroons. Facing increasing expansion from the National Hockey League, Lester and Frank sold off their teams’ rosters to the NHL, with the Cougars going to Detroit and Vancouver to Chicago.

Bowlsby started researching the history of Western Canadian hockey almost 20 years ago. “It was intriguing because there was a huge black void of non-info,” says Bowlsby. “I was like an explorer looking into a black hole … I had no path to follow. I had to carve my own.” Bowlsby relied on provincial, municipal and university archives, as well as newspaper clippings and more to do the necessary research. “You wouldn’t believe how many newspaper clips I read. The payoff was small. Sitting in the bowels of some archive, I’d find a fact I’ve been looking for for a year, and I’d want to shout out. But there’s nobody there. Nobody cared.” But it was a labour of love. “It had never been done fully before. There were lots of simple facts known, but even some of them I knew were wrong. Once I started looking into it, I knew there was a part of history here and I couldn’t resist being the one to tell it.”

It took Bowlsby three and a half years to complete the research and writing of Empire of Ice, his second about the history of hockey in Western Canada (his first was The Knights of Winter, which recounts the years between 18951911). But it could have taken longer had it not been for the technological revolution. “Half-way through, a huge amount of material came online. It really sped up the process … it was a godsend.” He shopped the book around to publishing companies and initially found some interest, but decided to go ahead with self-publishing after waiting longer than he wanted. Despite having no distribution, he still managed to get his books into major Chapters locations (it’s also available at Munro’s in Victoria), and is hosting a book launch and reading at the Victoria Chapters (1212 Douglas), Wed., March 27 from 1 to 4pm. Bowlsby will be giving away Victoria Cougars T-shirts as trivia prizes. M

KIERAN REPORT

Clark faces scorn of avenging angel artyn B r ow n — who ser ved f o r many years as chief of staff to former premier Gordon Campbell — has emerged BRIAN from political purgaKIERAN tory to help us better bkieran@ relish the undoing mondaymag.com of Premier Christy Clark. This month’s Liberal ethnic outreach scandal has transformed the once dour Campbell henchman into an avenging angel. The leaked strategy, Brown writes, constituted an “ethically egregious and nefarious plan that has gravely undermined public trust and confidence in the Clark government.” “That fiasco, on top of many other incidents, errors and failings of leadership, has fundamentally compromised the Office of the Premier. However politically inept, naïve, ignorant and downright stupid it surely was — on so many levels — it has caused enormous harm to the government. It has also irreparably hurt the premier,” Brown rants. Wow! That’s tough love from a political operative who used to demand unques-

M

tioning obedience from all who sought the help of the administration he propped up. When Brown was running the show in the West Wing, the bottom line was validation. If you wanted to interact successfully with the Campbell regime you had to validate the leader and his initiatives. To do anything less was to invite Brown’s considerable scorn. I remember tasting his disdain more than a decade ago when I was a government relations consultant. One of my clients, a studiously nonpartisan association of business professionals, had issued a press release supportive of the government’s balanced budget agenda while also cautious about the increasing accumulated debt load. Brown took me aside at the Helijet terminal, angrily dismissed my client as insignificant and made it clear that the association’s constructive criticism was not welcome. I was reminded of that dressing down when I read the Review of the Draft Multicultural Outreach Plan written by Deputy Minister John Dyble. I found most disturbing the finding by Dyble that there were anonymous complaints to government about the pressure tactics used by political staff. “One caller was angry because after attending the meeting and providing personal information, she claimed to have subsequently received political materials

Probably. It would be much more convenient.

at her home,” Dyble reported. “Another caller alleged that she was told that grants to her organization would be at risk if events were not scheduled for the minister. One of the callers also indicated that she was pressured not to report her concern to government.” These findings reinforced my experience that this kind of heavy-handed partisan intimidation has been part of the Liberal playbook going back to the Campbell era. Indeed, it can be argued that the culture of validation that Brown promoted is at the root of the Liberals’ crisis this month. I am heartened that the public appears to have put this scandal in context and has not let it divert attention from the really pressing issues ahead of us. A current Ipsos Reid poll of 1,000 British Columbians finds that 44 per cent of us think this behaviour is typical of most political parties and governments. Another 25 per cent could care less. As we approach the May election the top two issues that British Columbians would like to receive the greatest attention from our leaders are health care (24 per cent) and the economy (21 per cent). “Ethics and accountability” — issues that have pre-occupied politicians and the media for weeks — rate just 10 per cent on the public’s scale of importance. There’s a lesson there someplace. M

CITY WATCHDOG

City’s noise weapons target our youth t’s difficult to describe the sound emitted by mosquito machines. Far from the mild whine suggested by their name, machines like the one installed at the corner of Douglas and View spew forth a squealing metallic vibration which forces itself into the dark corners of the skull. I discovered this noise — designed as a deterrent against loitering youth — a SIMON few weeks back. Had I been curious about NATTRASS the quality of my hearing (I wasn’t), I would snattrass@ have been interested to know that I’m one mondaymag.com of only a handful of people outside of their teens who are able to hear the sound produced by the machine. Mosquito machines have been used in Vancouver and a handful of other towns throughout B.C. and, despite communities’ often negative reception, have thus far evaded regulation by any level of government. According to the City of Victoria, the machines — which rely on tone rather than volume to ward off unwanted youth — don’t register on the meters used to enforce noise bylaws.

While quiet relative to the din of an average city street, a German study on the effects of mosquito machines found that “disruption of the equilibrium senses, as well as other extraaural effects are well known.” Other effects mentioned by the study include dizziness, headache, nausea and impairment, all to be expected at the machine’s higher volumes. “As a community, we need to be asking more insightful questions than ‘How can we get youth to cease loitering in front of our businesses?’” says Kluane Buser-Rivet, coordinator of the City of Victoria youth council. “By allowing mosquito machines in our city, we send a clear message to youth that they are not wanted on our streets.” Victoria councillor Lisa Helps echoes Buser-Rivet’s concerns, suggesting that businesses work with youth “to see how they would like these spaces shaped and to engage them in making them that way.” There are few things that are as ethically repulsive as creating a weapon, which targets groups based only on a shared physical trait. That this practice remains unexamined by government or the broader community launches our reality into a dystopic future once reserved for science fiction. Imagine for a moment that these machines targeted any group other than youth — what would our response be? M

is also clear. I do share your attitude toward organized religion and its dry cleaning of minds and souls (I was a recovering Catholic for years). As far as any pending apocalypse is concerned, one wonders just how long the finger can be stayed from the nuclear button when you look around to see how corruption and nations’ collective descent into barbarism has been so easy.

Your final point about what every great religious leader has preached...Be kind to one another... has been completely buried in a religious, economic and political graveyard. We've been deep down the rabbit hole of lies since 9/11, and there is no sign of illumination, save the cries of a few perspicacious souls in the media wilderness. JOHN NOLAN, VICTORIA

HERO WORK CALLS ON COMMUNITY TO HELP By Danielle Pope news@mondaymag.com

or 18 years, Queens Avenue has played host to the Mustard Seed food bank — a site that serves over 7,000 clients a month.

Red Fish Blue Fish is not just my favourite place for fish and chips, but truly one of Victoria’s best places to eat. Nestled on a pier in the Inner Harbour, inside a retrofitted shipping container, there’s no table service and at peak times in the summer months, you can stand in line for an hour or more. But people do it because the rewards are great. Spectacularly good food is served in generous portions and everything is environmentally friendly.

COCONUT WATER IS THE LATEST DRINK CRAZE o doubt you have heard of it, but what exactly is it? Coconut water is an isotonic, nutrient packed, clear liquid, harvested from the inside of the young fruit itself, and is currently being marketed as a natural alternative to processed sports drinks due to its potassium and magnesium levels. Devotees also proclaim that it has no fat, in addition to an extremely low level of sodium and carbohydrates. It’s an acquired taste, and no, it doesn’t taste anything like a pina colada, or even coconut. If you live in Asia, you might buy one from a street vendor with the husk trimmed and opened in front of you, but on this Island in the Pacific, you are likely going to be slurping it from a can or bottle. But not all coconut waters are created equal. Blue Monkey offers 100 per cent pulp-free, natural juice, sustainably sourced and harvested yearround in the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand using green coconuts. In addition to the quality standards established by Blue Monkey, the ethical treatment and environmental conditions of the coconut growers and processors is an operating principle. Whether you use it to rehydrate after hot yoga or to sort yourself out after a late night, you can pick up a few cans for under $5 at major grocery

HALLE BERRY HAS A CALLING

WONDER AT THE BLUNDER

he Call, an adrenaline-rich tale of a maiden in peril at the hands of a diabolical kidnapper, has been getting decidedly mixed reviews and I’m not sure why. It does exactly what the trailers promise: take the audience on a slick thrill ride with two stops along the way for some brief but memorable carnage. Oscar-winner Halle Berry stars as Jordan Turner, a veteran 911 operator in Los Angeles who steps away from the front lines after making a mistake that costs a teenage girl her life at the hands of a crazed abductor. The story jumps ahead six months and another girl, Casey (Abigail Breslin, Little Miss Sunshine), is grabbed from a mall and chucked into the trunk of a car. She phones 911 on her cell and Jordan, now just a trainer of recruits, takes over the call when a newbie operator panics. The plot does a clever job of building suspense as Jordan coaches Casey in ways of helping track the car she’s travelling in. The kidnapper continues to elude his pursuers, but not before Jordan recognizes his voice as that of the killer from six months ago. And so, quicker than you can say “a shot at redemption,” Jordan makes it her personal mission to save the girl and get the murderous dirtbag. Sure, this formulaic actioner owes a large debt to Silence of the Lambs. But it also throws some clever plot twists at the audience (as well as an interesting insider’s look at the world of 911). Admittedly, the “insane killer” mostly just looks like he didn’t get enough sleep the night before. On the plus side of the acting ledger, there’s a nice cameo by Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) as Good Samaritan road kill, and Berry does a great job all the way through. The plotting is plausible, even if the climax is cliched and wobbly — and a bit unsavoury. Overall, though, Call delivers a clear, undistorted entertainment message. Rating: ★★½

ometime in the future when a historian of cinema writes a book examining the phenomenon of crappy movies by good actors, he/she may well spend a chapter on The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, a woefully ill-considered and unfunny “comedy.” The movie starts with two boyhood nerd-pals who bond over magic and later become superstar Las Vegas magicians. Suddenly it’s 20 years into their career and Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have seen both their act and their friendship go stale. The crisis comes when an upstart Criss Angelstyle performer (Jim Carrey, with scruffy beard and hair long enough to get him a job with the Allman Brothers Band) appears on the scene: this so-called “mind rapist” consistently upstages them with grotesquely masochistic stunts such as spending the night sleeping on a bed of hot coals or holding his urine for 10 days. Burt and Anton’s attempt to salvage their sputtering act fails, and the two become bitter enemies. Which leaves nearly an hour of screen time for these uninteresting characters to reconcile and relearn the “wonder” at the heart of magic. The adult Burt is a bitter, womanizing jerk and Carell makes him detestable but hardly ever funny. Buscemi, a talented but narrow-range character actor, mostly looks uncomfortable. Wonderstone also wastes the talents of James Gandolfini and Olivia Wilde; at least Alan Arkin creates genuine sentiment as the legendary magician who inspired Burt and Anton as boys. But the only reason to see this turkey is for the crazed cameo by Carrey, who performs his bizarre antics with an unnerving comic panache. M Rating: ★½

SAGITTARIUS NOV 22- DEC 21 This is a fabulously creative time for you! You’re excited about life because you feel very young and alive. Spontaneous vacations, surprise flirtations, social invitations and opportunities to explore the arts or sports events will bring excitement and variety to your life. So much is swirling around you, your life is rather dazzling right now. (And you love it.) The only downside is this could be an accident-prone week for your kids so if you are a parent or you work with children, be alert. (The world needs more lerts.) Your ability to be creative, intuitive and shoot from the hip is hugely magnified. Go do that voodoo that you do so well. CAPRICORN DEC 22-JAN 19 You are either focused on home and family right now or you are cocooning at home or all of the above. (Relatives can drive you to distraction and hibernation, which is why George Burns always said, “Happiness is having a warm, loving, caring family in another city.”) Ain’t it the truth? Some of you might bring home high-tech toys this week. (Big flat-screen TV? New computer? A robot that vacuums your floors?) Spontaneous entertaining might occur. (Stock the fridge.) You continue to focus on redecorating and renovating because you’re determined to make your digs look fabulous. Hey – you’re not trying to keep up with the Joneses, you are the Joneses. (All hail.) AQUARIUS JAN 20-FEB 18 You’re hustling! This is a busy week. It’s full of unexpected events: short trips, surprise visits, interactions with siblings and neighbours plus fascinating, interesting conversations with curious people. This will definitely keep you stimulated and pumped every day! You’ll love meeting new people and a few of you might strike up a new romance. If this happens, it might be short-lived but dazzling! (“A bee-utiful memory.”) This will be an especially creative, powerful week for those of you who teach, market, sell, write, edit and promote for a living because you’re unusually persuasive, innovative and original. (I don’t know about you but I’m impressed.) PISCES FEB 19-MARCH 20 It’s all about money and cash flow, isn’t it? (Or should I say cash dribble?) Keep your eyes open because many of you will discover new ways to earn money: a new job, a new way to make money on the side or a new way to package yourself in terms of how you attract money to you. Spontaneous purchases, especially for technology and electronics, will also likely happen. Some of your cash flow could be related to travel and real estate or family matters. You feel like you’ve got a finger in every pie and you’re waiting for something to come out of the oven. Do take note: whatever opportunities arise, your window of opportunity will be brief so you will have to act fast! (He who hesitates is miles away from the next exit.)

of cocoa on our cardiovascular health. The study is a meta-analysis, meaning that it combines the results of several independent trials. It looked at many different factors to do with our cardiovascular health such as blood pressure, lipid (fat) profiles, fasting blood sugar/insulin, inflammatory mediators and the proper functioning of our blood vessels. The results showed that when cocoa was consumed on an ongoing basis, there was an improvement seen in the ability of blood vessels to function properly, a decrease in fasting insulin and a decrease in insulin after glucose challenge tests. There was also a small decrease in blood pressure (diastolic) and “bad” cholesterol. There were no significant effects on CRP (an inflammatory marker), total cholesterol or systolic blood pressure (hey, you can’t win ‘em all) and there was insufficient information (or too few trials) to determine the effect on body weight, body mass index and waist circumference. So what does this mean? Overall, it seems that eating a little chocolate might have some positive benefits for our health (yippee!) but this is not permission to run out to your local gas station and fill up on your favourite candy bars! These positive results come from good quality cocoa and definitely not from the junk (sugar, bad fats, chemicals) that is found in candy bars – these, of course, have the opposite effect. So if you’re looking for permission to eat a bit of chocolate here and there, here it is, but make sure you’re getting the good stuff! Go for chocolate that contains the most cocoa and the least amount of sugar. The darker the chocolate (eg.70 or 85% cocoa) the better, as well, the less sugar and other questionable ingredients the better. If you are a milk chocolate lover it may take some time for you to acquire a taste for darker, richer chocolate, but many people find they feel more satisfied with a small amount (they don’t feel the need to eat the whole bar!). So go ahead and spoil your family with a little chocolate this Easter!
