Marriage without consent Couples entering cohabitation, those leaving relationships have things to think about under new Family Law Act

M

amata Kreisler and her boyfriend are like many modern couples. They’ve lived together for the past two years, share a French Bulldog-Boston Terrier cross and recently bought a house in Saanich together. They each have debt, prefer to keep separate bank accounts and, perhaps most tellingly, have trouble saying exactly when the dating life began. “He was living with me and my roommate, sleeping on a couch, and then we started dating about six months later,” she said. But as of Monday, Kreisler and her partner now inadvertently hold a legal label they thought was years away from reality: married. The new B.C. Family Law Act provides sweeping changes that will affect many of the 15,000 cohabiting couples in the Capital Region more than 160,000 couples in the province. Daniel Palmer and “If you have lived in a marriage-like Reporting relationship for at least two years, the law now considers you a spouse,” said Christine Murray, a partner at Victoria-based Cassels-Murray Family and Estates Law. For the first time, common-law couples are subject to the same legal rights and responsibilities of married couples. If a couple separates, any gains in assets or debt incurred during the relationship are now split down the middle, regardless of which partner owns them. PLEASE SEE: New regulations, Page A4

Transit servicing backlog cleared

Victoria architect Paul Merrick, left, Royal B.C. Museum CEO Jack Lohman and London architect John McAslan, stand near the entrance to the museum, an aspect of the facility they hope to redesign under a new master plan for the buildings. McAslan’s firm is the lead architect for the project.

Information on delays will continue to be posted Daniel Palmer News staff

B.C. museum refresh shifts gears New site plan to be created to ready the Royal B.C. Museum for the next decade Don Descoteau News staff

Jack Lohman was animated describing how the Royal B.C. Museum will morph from a facility that is “tired and in need of upgrades” to one that reaches “new levels of excellence.” The museum CEO, who completes his first year on the job March 26, used Tuesday’s announcement of a top-notch architectural team for the museum’s major upgrade to explain his vision for the future. Comparing the current entrance hall to that of a shopping mall, he called for the creation of a more welcoming and appropriate gateway to the exhibits. Not only that, he said, the facility needs a refresh to make it more appealing and accessible to visitors, both locals and tourists. “We know tourism here is a fivemonth, intense period, but we need to attract visitors all year round,” he said. “We have a huge local population that is very educated and deeply interested in history and culture. We need to make that offer to the local community, but we are (also) a museum for the entire province.” Despite the big-picture talk, the announcement Tuesday was merely

the kickoff to six months of work to create a master site plan for the museum precinct. The goal is to see significant changes by 2017 and completion of the work in time for B.C.’s 150th anniversary in 2021. John McAslan’s internationally renowned London company will serve as lead architect in the creation of that plan, which also involves the B.C. Archives next door. Recognizing the need to air out the museum’s offerings, he pointed to a need to “allow the building to breathe and be connected in a way that allows movement and circulation.” Lohman distanced himself from a previous development plan that called for two more towers to be built onsite, a plan for which the museum received a rezoning approval for the property in 2011. The idea of erecting two office towers “scared me,” Lohman said, adding it was an inappropriate way to develop museum space. The overarching objective is to create a master plan for the existing site, obtaining better value for what’s already there, rather than creating a building plan, he said. Victoria Coun. Pam Madoff, city council’s unofficial heritage watchdog the past two decades, sounded excited about the possibilities for

the site, especially with McAslan on board. Aware of the type of major transformations the U.K. company has undertaken – rebuilding the Iron Market in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, or refurbishing a stodgy King’s Cross Station in London before the 2012 Olympics, for example – Madoff’s eyes lit up talking about the opportunity to remake the provincial museum. “It’s his principles that interest me,” she said of the vision McAslan and colleagues have demonstrated. “It’s about recognizing the value in what’s there while being sensitive (to the surroundings). I’ve never felt so optimistic.” The 2011 rezoning was a painful process, Madoff recalled. “Those (ideas) were built on a business model,” she says. “Today’s plan is what does the museum need?” Local architect Paul Merrick’s firm will play a leading role in developing and interpreting the visions of the McAslan group. Merrick recalled that the museum was built by the W.A.C. Bennett government in the rather utilitarian style of the 1960s. “It was essentially a black box that was habited by experiences, or what we call exhibits today,” he said.

While technological improvements and additions such as the National Geographic IMAX Theatre have created added value for the facility, he said, they haven’t done anything to remove impedances to first-time visitors. Merrick considers the corner of Belleville and Government streets ground zero for tourists in Victoria, given its proximity to the legislature, the Fairmont Empress Hotel and the Inner Harbour. The museum is juxtaposed between those two architectural icons, he said, yet often gets missed, in part due to its somewhat nondescript appearance. “People can be standing right there, but still have to ask ‘where is the Royal B.C. Museum?’” editor@vicnews.com

B.C. Transit shelled out between 60 and 70 hours of overtime pay daily for more than a month to catch up on a backlog in bus repairs. Greater Victoria transit service is now operating at service levels not seen since last October, when drivers and mechanics were banned from working overtime during labour negotiations. “Our collective agreement with the union was signed Jan. 22, so our mechanics worked through most of February and into March,” said Meribeth Burton, B.C. Transit spokesperson. Plus, there are now 42 mechanics employed by the Crown corporation in its two garages, thanks to some new hires, she added. “We’re now fully staffed for the first time in five years in our garages.” B.C. Transit began issuing service delays on its website and on Twitter during negotiations, a practice that will continue thanks to updates at its communications centre, Burton said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Vitamin C and Lysine powder help prevent heart attacks V

Black Press stock photo

by W. Gifford-Jones M.D.

Why is heart attack the number one killer in this country? Ninety-nine percent of doctors say it’s due to atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) and that cholesterol lowering drugs are the primary way to treat it. But I suggest cardiologists have closed minds and are ignoring facts that could save thousands of North Americans from coronary attack.

New regulations focus on rights and protections

History shows mankind is not kind to new ideas. In 1847 one maternity patient in six who entered the University Hospital in Vienna left in a coffin. Why? Because esteemed professors ridiculed Dr. Semmelweiss, a colleague, for showing that by simply washing hands after doing an autopsy, deaths were prevented. Years later Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner, is ignored for reporting that large amounts of vitamin C and lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twenty-five years ago Pauling reported that animals make vitamin C and humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during long sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived. Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Williams Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Wellington University in New Zealand, proved Pauling was right. Stebhens’ research showed that coronary arteries closest to the heart are under the greatest pressure. This causes collagen to fracture resulting in the formation of a blood clot and death. Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proved that vitamin C can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later additional pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries. So what has happened to these monumental findings? Bush, like Semmelweiss, has been ridiculed by cardiologists. One has to ask whether cardiologists, by ignoring his results, are condemning thousands of people to an early coronary heart attack. Fourteen years ago following my own coronary attack, cardiologists claimed it was sheer madness for me to refuse cholesterol-lowering drugs. Instead, I decided to take high doses of vitamin C plus lysine with breakfast and the evening meal, for several reasons. I knew that Dr. Graveline, a physician and NASA astronaut, had twice developed transient global amnesia from taking Lipitor. I was also aware that patients have died from CLDs. Others have developed kidney, liver and muscle complications. I also believed the research of Pauling and Stehbens irrefutable. Now, the work of Dr. Bush has convinced me my decision was prudent. But to take large doses of vitamin C and lysine requires swallowing many pills daily. It’s a tall order for those who dislike swallowing one pill. So for several years I’ve been trying to find a company that would manufacture a combination of vitamin C and lysine powder. Now Medi-C Plus is available at health food stores. The dosage for the Medi-C Plus combination is one flat scoop with breakfast and the evening meal. Those at greater risk should take one flat scoop three times a day. If high doses cause diarrhea, the dose should be decreased. This column does not recommend that those taking CLDs should stop them. This is a decision that can only be made by patients and doctors. Most of today’s, cardiologists are impervious to persuasion. They continue to believe that cholesterollowering drugs are the be-all-and-end-all to prevent heart attack. They’ve been brain-washed by millions of dollars worth of promotion by pharmaceutical companies. It reminds me of the saying that cautions “It’s not what you don’t know what gets you into trouble, it’s the things you know for sure that ain’t so!” It’s time for cardiologists to have an open mind and stop ignoring this research. As for me – I bet my life on it! Available at: House of Nutrition Lifestyle Markets Planet Organic Market Sidney Natural Foods The Vitamin Shop PNO.CA

“That property includes real estate, personal property, bank accounts, generally anything with value owned by one or both spouses at the date of separation,” Murray said. Property acquired before the relationship began, as well as gifts, inheritances and damage awards will still be protected from equal division. “If it is a couple’s intention to keep their property separate, they’ll have to enter into a written agreement to make sure they can have their intentions carried throughout their relationship,” Murray said. Some questions, such as whether or not both partners are responsible for the depreciation value of a home, will have to play out in court, she added. It could also be difficult to prove when a relationship began, as Kreisler and her partner illustrate with their roommate-to-romance situation. “It’s not a clear-cut, black-andwhite test,” Murray said. Despite the confusion for common-law couples, the Family Law Act is considered a progressive piece of legislation, extending property rights and child protection measures to B.C. families who are more commonly choosing not to get married. It also encourages couples to pursue non-court agreements for dispute resolution through arbitration, where the success rates can be as high as 80 per cent, said

Keri Boyle, executive director of Mediate B.C. “You can go to court and have a judge tell you what the result is, or you can try a different process, which, in my experience, is going to be cheaper,” she said. Mediation and other forms of collaborative law can also preserve relationships more effectively than court battles, Boyle added. “Success needs to be measured by more than resolving the issues. If a couple comes out of the process with a relationship intact, that’s much better for their children.” Time will tell whether the revised laws will ease the burden on the justice system, but Murray hopes couples will begin to have serious discussions early. “Maybe it will be a good thing and people will think about their living situations at the front end of their relationship, so they don’t have to do as much heavy lifting if that relationship ends.” Kreisler isn’t concerned with how the law chooses to label her relationship, and the idea of a cohabitation agreement doesn’t make sense to her. “I understand prenuptial agreements if one person is really rich and one isn’t. It could be a concern going into a marriage,” she said. “But that’s not something either of us are worried about.” To learn more about the Family Law Act, visit bit.ly/Yn8uOi. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Esquimalt blazes keep firefighters busy Four residents of a house on Park Terrace in Esquimalt were able to return to their home after a porch fire was extinguished quickly Monday. Members of nearby Esquimalt Fire Rescue responded at 7:35 a.m. and managed to limit damage to the house to a minimum. Two occupants of an attached duplex were evacuated without incident along with the four residents of the home, Asst. Fire Chief Gib Small said. The fire was likely due to a still-lit cigarette, he added. A fire that started on a stovetop March 16 in an apartment building in the 700-block of Lampson St., led fire crews to evacuate the building. Firefighters from Esquimalt and Department of National Defence responded around 11:30 p.m. and found smoke filling a hallway. They located the suite in question and removed two occupants, who were treated for smoke inhalation. Damage to the building is minimal and the fire is not considered suspicious. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Moms support mental health petition News staff

The mothers of two teens who committed suicide are publicly supporting a Victoria couple in their fight to improve B.C.’s emergency mental health services. Carol Todd and Barb Kozeletski say the petition started by Kelly and Owen Bradley, calling on the province to do more for vulnerable children and teenagers, is a worthy cause. The Bradleys’ daughter was sent home from Victoria General Hospital on three occasions while suffering a violent bipolar episode. Their online petition (chn.ge/YYjR1C) has garnered more than 29,000 signatures since January. “We know health funding is tight, but we’re talking about children who are self-harming or have suicidal (thoughts) who are reaching out for help,” said Kozeletski. Her daughter, Hayden, took her life in 2009 while under professional care at Ledger House, a 13-bed youth mental health-care facility in Saanich. “The system failed Hayden. I would hate to see the Bradleys or any other family go

through the heartbreak we did when our daughter took her life.” The Bradleys waited 19 days earlier this year to have their daughter placed at Ledger House. She was scheduled to be discharged this week. Amanda Todd, 15, killed herself at her family’s Coquitlam home last October

after persistent bullying. “Too many lives have been lost already,” Carol Todd said. “Kelly and Owen’s endeavour to improve emergency services for children and youth with mental health concerns is one that I will continue to support in our

province and promote awareness of globally.” The Vancouver Island Health Authority announced earlier this month it was hiring full-time child and adolescent psychiatrists and creating an on-call 24-7 emergency psychiatric care team at Victoria General Hospital. dpalmer@vicnews.com

As a way to reduce its carbon footprint, the University of Victoria is investigating building a biomass thermal energy plant to heat its buildings. “Biomass fuel, such as wood waste, or a combination of wood waste, yard and garden waste, is clean. It doesn’t create greenhouse gas because it’s a renewable resource,” said Tom Smith, UVic’s director of facilities. “It’s burning something different than natural gas that comes from the ground to create hot water.” The university’s current heat system – hot water generated by natural-gas fuelled burners – accounts for more than 70 per cent of UVic’s current greenhouse gas emissions. Smith says the university spends some $750,000 a year on carbon offsets and taxes on natural gas. Building a biomass fuel plant was one of the recommendations that came out of UVic’s energy master plan, which looked at the school’s energy savings. “It’s just a feasibility study at this time, but if it’s successful it could make us the greenest university in Canada,” Smith said. “This study will consider the technical and economic viability of a biomass energy plant as well as the opportunities for research and academic opportunities.” Energy management company Dalkia Canada is assisting UVic with the feasibility study, which is the first step in an “eight-month exploratory process.” A public open house on the feasibility study will be held Wednesday, March 27 from 3 to 7 p.m. in the upper lounge of the Student Union Building. kslavin@saanich news.com

Danny Dimanno, 38, was arrested by VicPD’s Strike Force team March 14 after police observed him transporting and dealing drugs in the Capital Region. Covert officers tracked Dimanno to his base of operations in the 3900block of Carey Rd. in Saanich, and to a “stash house� in the West Shore, said VicPD Const. Mike Russell. The suspect was arrested with nine ounces of both cocaine and methamphetDimanno amine, and his vehicle was seized because it was equipped with illegal hidden compartments, Russell said. Dimanno is charged with two counts of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a controlled substance and for owning or operating a vehicle with after-market compartment. A court order prohibits Dimanno from returning to Vancouver Island. If you see him, call 911 but do not approach him. dpalmer@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Breaking up is hard to do Pierre Elliot Trudeau once famously said, “The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation.” That was in reference to the Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1968-69, which decriminalized homosexuality, made way for abortion and contraception, regulated lotteries, gun possession and drinking and driving offences – a scenario we take for granted today. In its latest attempt to poke its nose into our bedrooms, the province’s new Family Law Act will help protect those in common-law relationships if and when the romance dies. While the new rules clarify the partners’ responsibilty for their children, they also make division of assets a little easier, a move the government says will keep more unhappy couples out of court. As with any change to the law, it’s the lawyers who will see the biggest benefit. People already living common-law and those thinking of shacking up with a romantic partner will now be drawing up cohabitation agreements – planning well beyond who gets the record collection when it’s over. And while the new rules certainly close a number of loopholes in terms of spousal and child support, there will be unintended consequences, with potentially more at stake financially at the time of a break-up. It’s only human nature to want what you have coming to you – even if it’s only because the government has said you deserve it. It’s this kind of thinking that might well lead more splitting couples to the courtroom than anticipated. The new Act gives us all something to think about. Things like purchasing a new car, investing in real estate or RRSPs might best be done before emptying a drawer in your bureau for a new partner. You might also want to think twice before moving in with someone who is going back to school and about to amass student debt – because if you part ways, along with those old Neil Sedaka LPs – you’ll get half of that too.

It seemed a bit wacky to body, a lot would be lost.

The municipalities work well as they are because of the amount of representation they have. I fear what would happen if, for instance, there was only one voice from Highlands trying to explain the needs of its community to larger urban municipalities. It’s refreshing to know the councillors and see them in the community practising what they preach. I live in Langford and often see Coun. Lillian Szpak riding her bicycle to community events or just for fun. I know that when she is at the council table, she is pushing for more bike lanes and connecting trails in Langford. Residents choose which community they live in based on their own beliefs and principles, and sometimes on the direction of their municipality’s official community plan. While there are a number of reasons for amalgamating, such as cutting down on administrative costs, will the savings really amount to much? We all choose what we are willing to spend more money on, but at the end of the day, quality determines where my money goes. If you check the stipends municipal councillors earn compared to the number of meetings they attend, it’s obvious they aren’t in it for the cash. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Driver remains fearful of riding in traffic in the city I have some thoughts about cycling in Victoria, with Bike to Work Week approaching. As a driver, I often compete with cyclists for road space, forced into the nearest left lane to go around and ahead so I can drive at the speed limit. I’ve seen several near accidents with other drivers doing the same. Often the cyclist is wearing dark clothes, no helmet and has

no lights. Sometimes they are riding on the sidewalk or against traffic; sometimes they jump the traffic lights. I spent some time in Holland and Denmark. There, cyclists and pedestrians have the right of way. In many places, lanes are separated by several inches of concrete barriers, sometimes of differing heights. Driving tests are much more

complicated because the road system is more complicated; Europeans rarely pass driving tests the first time. There are also rail lines, trams and buses. Cars and trucks have the last right of way. Cyclists in Europe don’t wear helmets and many cyclists here think they aren’t necessary. If we had a similar traffic setup, you wouldn’t need to wear a

helmet. Instead, our cyclists risk their lives every time they set out. Europeans don’t use bikes designed for the Tour de France, they ride sturdy bikes on which they sit upright, with the greatest field of vision, a basket on the front for groceries and lights and bells. I feel sorry for cyclists here who obey traffic laws, wear

light-coloured clothes, helmets, etc. They deserve proper protected lanes throughout the city. Until that happens, I will be sticking to my car. It’s too dangerous. And I also don’t wish to breathe car and bus exhaust fumes, either. Helene Harrison Victoria

Readers respond: Anglican marriage ideas, urban speed limits Appreciation given for Anglican ideas Re: Anglicans mull new direction on marriage (News, Mar. 15) My appreciation goes out to my friends and colleagues in the Anglican church for embracing greater gender equality. So what if it has been hesitant and slow to materialize; it’s happening. Change inside all institutional religions comes at ‘glacial’ speed, with lots of excruciating pain and misery thrown up for some who resist. Nevertheless, when it happens we all can breath our gratitude. Critics are legion and will always find things to point out and decry what has taken place,

but since we are dealing with humans, we never will get it perfect. When “shift happens” we can all rejoice. I toast my brothers and sisters in Christ. Well done. Dale Perkins Victoria

Slowing vehicles down would create livability There are plenty of arguments against the idea of reducing speed in towns and cities. Most are based on the notion that there will be a loss of personal freedom, or that travel time will be significantly compromised. None of the arguments have any basis in fact. Even the 85th percentile argument is flawed, because it fails to account for

road users other than motorized vehicles. There’s an ongoing blame game that tries to project the fault onto pedestrians, cyclists, the distracted or the elderly. If drivers were without fault, this would be easy to argue. You can do a lot more damage if you’re driving a car. The car is a wonderful transportation device, but it’s time for our car-centricity to yield. Reducing speed limits where people live is a simple way to improve the livability of our communities and the health of our population. Real-world experience and multiple studies have verified this. One study states that it’s only a question of “the regulators’ willingness to act on

the evidence.” Congratulations to Victoria city council for having the foresight and the fortitude to consider doing that. Dave Ferguson Saanich

Travelling the road to a better city The City of Victoria’s speed limit initiative needs perspective. It seems that many people have concluded that 40 km/h will apply on all roads. This is not the case and here’s why the proposed change makes sense: Most of the road surface in cities and towns consists of non arterial streets that default to 50 km/h if they are unposted. By establishing a default limit of 40 km/h, the cost of bringing

Much-admired Uruguayan leader sets bad precedent Re: Uruguay president offers shining example (Suzuki, March 15) David Suzuki and Ian Hanington call ‘radical activist’ Jose Mujica ‘a remarkable man,’ the same man who ‘joined the left-wing guerrilla group known as Tupamaros … was shot six times and imprisoned for 14 years.’ This radical Tupamaros guerrilla ran for office and was elected president in 2009. The writers encourage ‘bright

young idealists’ to ‘share their environmental concerns’ by getting involved in politics. Mujica pretends, like Suzuki, Hanington and all globalists, that he is concerned about getting ‘the masses out of poverty,’ and the best way to do it is with something they call ‘sustainable development.’ The truth is, sustainability cultists like Mujica because he is a ‘green’ globalist eugenicist who votes for the infernal population reduction and

so-called ‘family planning’ programmes of UN Agenda 21. At Rio+20, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in June 2012, Mujica asked, “does this planet have enough resources so seven or eight billion can have the same level of consumption and waste that today is seen in rich societies? It is this level of hyper-consumption that is harming our planet.” Mujica advocated a bill legalizing abortion before 12

weeks, which lowered his popularity with the people of Uruguay. The word sustainability is ‘green’ globalist code for ‘eugenics.’ Far from being ‘a good role model with wise, enduring values, and an inspiration for people around the world,’ as Suzuki and Hanington enthuse, Jose Mujica is a very dangerous, decadent and delusional man.

appropriate limits to many streets will be minimized. Will lowering speed limits eliminate speeding and unlawful driving? Of course not. There’ll always be a need for enforcement. But there’s a bigger picture to consider. Reducing speed in urban and residential areas is an investment in a healthier and more functional society. You have to look further down the road to see that. If you haven’t read the many studies that have been done on this, Google is an easy way to find them. Change doesn’t come overnight but the long list of positives that slower driving brings to society is worth pursuing. Lingxia Li Saanich

Outdoor expo at Pearkes Try a bull ride, float on water balls As a trade show that bills itself for active people, this year the Vancouver Island Outdoor Adventure Expo has taken the bull by the horns. The fourth annual recreation trade expo launches today (March 22) at Pearkes Recreation Centre, with dozens of vendors linked to fishing, ATVs, fitness and offroad activities, but also with mechanical bull riding, and “zorbing,” a floating human hamster ball. The Cyclone mechanical bull, complete with a bull head and horns, will give aspiring cowboys the thrill of rodeo riding, but without the spinal injuries. Cushioned all around, it is designed for kids and adults. The same company will set up a pool for “Wild Zorb-

ing Water Balls,” peoplesized floating plastic balls that require exceptional balance to stand and walk on water. Among other attractions are a 40-foot target range courtesy of TNT Paintball and an airgun range hosted by the Victoria Fish and Game Club. The expo will also host a display from Sterling Cross Defense Systems, an Abbotsford company that supplies items such as heavy machine guns, cannons and riot control gear to military and police agencies, and weapons for civilian sport shooters. The show runs from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Visit vioutdoorexpo.ca for details. editor@saanichnews.com

MELINDA HARRIS AND TEAM, GO WEST DESIGN GROUP INC. Not many female business leaders have the kind of wide-ranging personal and professional experience that Victoria’s Melinda Harris has. The founder and president of Go West Design Group grew up in the rough and tumble world of Northern Vancouver Island. As a toddler, her father handed her a fishing rod, infusing her childhood with a life-long love of nature, exploration and adventure. So it’s not surprising that she has found a satisfying career helping her many clients navigate their way through the ever-changing waters of marketing and advertising. She is a graduate of the progressive Sheridan College (Visual Art and Design) in Ontario. “Of all the things I have learned in my 15 years managing my business, it is the value of branding. We specialize in brand development and management so that the product stands out in the marketplace. When people ask me what our company does, I often say ‘We brand you, before you get labelled,’” says Melinda Harris.

How does Go West accomplish that? Harris and her team are known for developing detailed marketing plans, which start with in-depth research into the company, its competitors and its clients. “We find what makes the company unique so that we can help them stand out from the crowd and increase their market share. We combine research and creativity to attract and persuade specific audiences. I love the psychology of it – determining what will motivate their target audience and show results on the bottom line.” As an amateur soccer player, Harris knows how important it

is to have a highly skilled team behind her, each with their own area of specialty. As the Creative Director “I’m like a player/coach” she laughs. “And my team enjoys winning!” They are: PR and media specialist Joan Athey, researcher and writer Stephanie Holmes, graphic designer and illustrator Johanna St. Michael, social media expert Juhli Selby and accountant Maureen Butler. Their collective skills allow them to maximize everything from traditional media to social media channels – building, maintaining and protecting their clients’ assets. And because their multifaceted approach is all in-house, clients ranging from government ministries to small business are confident their needs are wellserved efficiently and affordably. “I feel like my clients are family.

Toothy remains of ‘hippos’ highlight weekend fossil fair News staff

As a long-extinct blubbery hippo-like aquatic beast, one day you’re munching on marsh grass on the California coast, and then 15 million years later, your tooth is for sale at a flea market in Victoria. Such is the cycle of life. Last year a member of the Victoria Palaeontology Society happened across the big black molar with it’s six distinct cusps at a garage sale, and rescued it for the Royal B.C. Museum. The tooth will be one of the highlights at this weekend’s Fossil Fair, an event that will fill the Swan Lake nature house with hundreds of bones and fossils reaching back 550 million years ago to relatively recently – 10,000 years ago, the end of the last Ice Age. The rescued molar belonged to a plant-eating marine mammal distantly linked to manatees and sea cows, and was originally found in California. “The tooth is dramatic and represents the group as a

whole,” said Tom Cockburn, a research associate with the RBCM and a member of the Victoria Palaeontology Society. A molar tooth of a similar creature was found in the Sooke area in the 1920s by Ira Cornwall. That species was named Cornwallis sookensis and is dated to about 25 million years old. A cast of that tooth will also be on display courtesy of the RBCM. “These are big aquatic mammals which went on land too, for feeding and foraging,” Cockburn said. “They look like hippos and they may be distantly related to hippos.” These sea mammals would have lived on the shores of Vancouver Island and B.C. as long ago as 25 million years ago, which didn’t look a great deal different from now, although it may have been warmer. People camping found bones of another similar species in a riverbed leading to Sombrio Beach in 2007, and turned them over to the museum. Out of that discovery, Cockburn and Brian Beatty of the

New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, have authored a paper on the creature, called Behemotops, which is undergoing a peer review in a scientific journal. “Behemotops would have spent a lot of time in the water, but its feet show it would definitely walk on land,” Cockburn said. “We think it would come out (of the ocean) to feed on marsh grass and in estuaries. It would look about the size of a sea lion,” he said. “It’s not a little guy, but it’s not hippo sized either.” Among the dinosaur bones and creatures on display, this year the society is showing the tire-sized fossil of a giant extinct cephalopod alongside a life sized artist rendering of the creature, tentacles and all. The fossil fair runs March 23 and 24, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary, 3873 Swan Lake Rd.

Sooke River Bluegrass Festival reaches out Travis Paterson News staff

A one-night preview of this summer’s Sooke River Bluegrass Festival is coming to Oak Bay this month. Local bands The Sweet Lowdown, The Moonshiners, the Clover Point Drifters and the Riverside Trio, will share the stage at Oak Bay United Church on March 30 as part of The All-Star Bluegrass Celebration. It’s a fundraiser and a sneak peek for the annual festival scheduled June 14 to 16 at the Sooke River Campground. “It does more than highlight some of the talent for the festival with an awesome response,” said Phil Shaver of the Sooke Bluegrass Festival Society. “It’s our first time doing the fundraiser in Victoria and it’s long overdue. The support from the Victoria bluegrass community, the band support, it’s all been overwhelming, everyone is in support of the festival.” The society has made outreach efforts before but this is its first time getting out of Sooke and closer to downtown. The Victoria Bluegrass Association hosts the March 30 show that will hopefully expose a larger audience to the Sooke festival. “We are so excited the festival is happening again and we are very happy to be part of this fundraising event in support of the festival,” said Amanda Blied of The Sweet

The Sweet Lowdown members Amanda Blied (guitar), Shanti Bremer (violin) and Miriam Sonstenes (banjo) are currently touring in Ontario but will perform the Sooke Bluegrass Festival this summer and a fundraiser at Oak Bay United Church on March 30.

Also on the bill for the all-star celebration are the The Moonshiners, who bring threepart harmonies and instrumental excursions, The Riverside Trio, with a high energy gospel sound, and The Clover Point Drifters, whose repertoire includes traditional bluegrass songs with a bluegrass spin on songs from the country, folk, blues and pop genres. Four more bands have officially committed to the June festival with many more on the way. New to this year’s festival is square dancing on the Saturday night, with YOMADA, the Young Oldtime Music and Dance Association, who host square dances in town. “The dancing will help bring the Victoria community to the Sooke festival,” Shaver said. “It’s a perfect venue, what festivals are built on, with camping and parking lot jamming. When the shows are done everyone jams.” Also new is a huge festival tent to make sure that everyone is warm and dry and happy. Show time is 7:30 p.m. for the Saturday, March 30 All-Star Bluegrass Celebration at Oak Bay United Church, 1355 Mitchell St. Tickets are $20 and are available in advance at Royal MacPherson Box Office, Oak Bay United Church office, and at the door. sports@vicnews.com

Upstart Reds ready for Bays Reds, Bays in Jackson Cup final Travis Paterson News staff

They are the unknown, the surprise team, and the underdogs. For many of the local faithful in the stands for Sunday’s Jackson Cup final at Royal Athletic Park on Sunday, it will be their first time seeing the Lakehill Reds. Kickoff is 3 p.m. The Division 2 Reds have come out of nowhere to challenge the Bays United, regular season champs of Div. 1, the Vancouver Island Soccer League’s top level. When the Bays take the field, there will be plenty of players familiar to the Jackson Cup, many of them having won it previously. Not so for the Reds. “It can be quite intimidating to think we’re playing the first place team in the final,” said Lakehill captain Jean-Robert Belliveau. “We’ve seen the Bays play. We know who they are. But there’s certainly no pressure on us. We’re just a Div. 2 team. That’s how it’s been all along in the Jackson Cup.” A Reynolds secondary soccer academy grad, Belliveau, 20, has been with Lakehill his entire youth.

His team is new, a merger of select players from his Lakehill U21 team from last season and its rival, the Bays United U21 team, including Kean de Vries. “The season started off kind of furry, we had our own factions and didn’t know each other too well,” said de Vries, a UVic student here from West Vancouver.

“...It’s up to them to beat the Div. 2 team like they’re supposed to.” – Reds’ Kean de Vries “As the games started flowing and we started winning, we started liking each other a little bit more. We know we have the talent.” It’s tough to call Lakehill the underdogs when they’re more like the under-pups against the veteran Bays squad. On the Bays (15-1-0) are players who’ve won multiple Jackson Cups, been provincial champions, and made multiple trips to the national championship. Half of Lakehill, meanwhile, is still eligible to be playing in the under-21 division. The oldest is the goalkeeper, Gabe Luger, 21. Two years ago a core of Gorge United veterans, Paul Van den Boomen (defence) and Jordie Hughes (midfield) among them, jettisoned to play for the Bays. They came from a Gorge team which owned the Jackson Cup like a cafe owns mugs.

They helped the Bays appear in last year’s Jackson Cup, but lost to Cowichan, 2-1. And now the Bays are even stronger. Hughes smashed the VISL for 28 goals in the regular season. Bays’ Kellen Holden, another former Gorge player, was next with 13 goals. The Bays has its own cast of VISL stars with Craig Robertson and Matt Northrup at the forefront. They’ve also recruited a strong cast of ex-UVic Vikes, creating a veritable all-star team. But it doesn’t matter to the Reds, who sought promotion to Div. 1 and nothing more. The Reds earned promotion to Div. 1 next year by finishing tied for first in Div. 2. It means this is the first of many meetings to come against Bays Utd. “I’m not scared. We think we have the chance to win,” de Vries said. “We’ve played against Div. 1 teams in every round and it’s up to them to beat the Div. 2 team like they’re supposed to.” “We have a real young team here,” said coach Paul Cringle. In the 1980s Cringle won the Jackson Cup with the Victoria Croatia. He’s coached in the Lakehill soccer association since his 18-year-old son Sean, a member of the Reds, was six years old. Reds’ Daylin Salter was also on that team. Extended story online at vicnews.com. sports@vicnews.com

The Victoria Cougars got what they wanted, but it came a bit early. Because the Comox Valley Glacier Kings are in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League final, and are also hosting the junior B provincial championship Fred “Cyclone” Taylor Cup April 11 to 14, the Cougars have their return ticket to provincials by default. Well, not quite. The Cougars earned it by eliminating the Peninsula Panthers and Saanich Braves in five games each for chance to win the VIJHL final’s Brent Patterson Memorial Trophy. But the main prize attached with the Patterson Trophy is a trip to provincials. Without it, some wonder if there will be as much on the line in the final between Comox and Victoria.

“We can’t completely ignore it but our goal from the start was to be (league) champions and it remains the same,” said Cougars coach Mark Van Helvoirt. “We can’t change the way we play in the final.” With the Victoria Curling Classic at the Cougar’s home rink of Archie Browning Sports Centre this week, the Cougars are forced to open the VIJHL final on the road Saturday in Comox. The Cougars have been practising at Bear Mountain Arena in the meantime. “I think it’s something we can use to our beneft, hopefully it takes the pressure off for Game 1,” Van Helvoirt said. The adjusted schedule means Games 2 and 3 will be March 26 and 28, 6:30 and 7 p.m. at Archie Browning, respectively. sports@vicnews.com

Give them power. Give them confidence. Give them control.

GIVE THEM A PAPER ROUTE! A paper route is about so much more than money. These days kids want and need so many things. With a paper route they not only earn the money to buy those things, they also gain a new respect for themselves. They discover a new sense of confidence, power and control by having their very own job, making their own money and paying for their own games, phones and time with friends. All it takes is an hour or so after school Wednesday and Friday. And even better... there are no collections required.

It’s so easy to get started… call

■ Slegg Lumber store grand opening ■ Saturday, March 16, 2013 ■ Keating Cross Road

Slegg Lumber Opens new Keating store Slegg Lumber welcomed the community March 16 for the grand opening of its new location on Keating X Road. Employing more than 30 full and part-time staff, the store covers more than five acres, and includes a full-service lumber yard and hardware store. People started lining up at 6 a.m. to be among the first 100 customers for the bucket sale and enjoy sausages and coffee for breakfast. The parking lot was full, overflowing into the lumber yard all day long. There was great community support from surrounding businesses with many stopping in to say hello. The Co-Op donated the condiments and soft drinks for the barbecue and provided lunch for the staff. The charity barbecue raised $800, with proceeds to the West Coast Ride to Live, benefiting Prostate Cancer Research. In addition, customers enjoyed hourly specials and prize give-aways running throughout the day, plus product demonstrations from more than 25 of Slegg Lumber’s vendors on hands. It was great fun to watch Chris Loran from 100.3 the Q go head to head with Marty the Marmot in the Nail Driving Contest. They were however, no match for the winner, Jorge DeMedeiros, Keating Store Manager. Slegg Realty and Slegg Mortgage as well as Alastair Bryson, Mayor of the District of Central Saanich and his council were present as Bob Slegg performed the ribbon cutting, officially launching their 10th store.

Doug has another surprise that he created in his home shop: a 1932 Ford tudor sedan that is also powered by a Chrysler hemi engine. The car is so perfect that it was voted the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association hot rod of the year in 2005. Doug and Dan grew up in the Newton area of Surrey, not far from Cloverdale where Doug has his home and shop. Their father was a machinist and they gravitated to the metal shop in school. Doug started building a race car with a small English-built 1949 Anglia car. The car hobby took off from there with twins building hot rod after hot rod. “We see each every day,” says Dan, a retired sheet metal fabricator. Doug jumps in to say it’s like they have the same brain. They build the same type of cars, travel to shows together and build their cars together. They have legions of American hot rodder

New exhibit opens at Ferrari Museum METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

The Ferrari Museum in Maranello has opened the “Ferrari Supercar, Technology, Design, Myth” exhibition. Exhibits include the new LaFerrari, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, as well as all of the other limited edition special series cars that helped establish the Prancing Horse legend. It retraces the story of all of the limited edition special series models built by Ferrari, starting with the 250 GTO, including an example of the 1964 version, and continuing with the 1984 GTO, the F40, the F50 and the Enzo, all the way up to the new model which has been named the LaFerrari as it epitomizes the sweeping excellence for which the Maranello marque is renowned. Parallel to the limited edition

road cars will be the Formula 1 cars that inspired Ferrari’s design in various eras, as well as special track and competitionoriented models, such as the GTO Evoluzione, the F40 Competizione, the 599XX and the FXX. A large section of the exhibition is devoted to the development of the LaFerrari, illustrating both its technical content and styling. The entire process from the car’s initial conception to the approval of the final car is traced, in fact, and visitors also have the opportunity to see two full-scale models in addition to the various stages the car went through in its design. The exhibition runs until Sept. 30. Tickets can be booked online at www.museoferrari.com, as can guided tours at museo@ferrari.com

Read below how Bell helps thousands, usually first night, inexpensively, with no side effects. Greatly improves quality of life and saves marriages. Survey says 48% snore and 75% are suffering if you include the silent suffering partners. To my surprise, after taking BellSound Sleep #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH  Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS  For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since #23 taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.  Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing.

The New Volkswagen e-up! METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Volkswagen is writing a new chapter in mobility in presenting its first fully electric production vehicle: the new e-up! The four-seat car, which operates with nearly zero noise, is being shown at today’s annual Press and Investors Conference in Wolfsburg. The new e-up! boasts a driving range of 150 km and excellent everyday practicality. With nearly zero noise, the e-up! is powered by an electric motor with 60 kW/80 hp peak power – without any disturbing gearshift interruptions or powertrain noise. Its continuous power is 40 kW/55 hp. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h within 14 seconds and reaches a top speed of 135 km/h.

The lithium-ion battery integrated in the under floor area has a total energy storage capacity of 18.7 Kilowatt-hours (kWh); this means that the car can cover up to 150 km (per NEDC) on a single charge thanks to its low vehicle weight of 1,185 kg. The port for charging the battery in the e-up! is hidden behind the ‘fuel filling flap.’ As an option, the Combined Charging System is used, which has been standardized by Volkswagen and other carmakers. It supports both DC and AC charging, so that drivers can easily charge their cars at most charging stations – regardless of the power sources or charging rates they offer. In autumn, the e-up! will make its show debut at the International Auto Show in Frankfurt and following this will become available to order.

With a range of 150 km, the Volkswagen e-up! will go on sale this fall in Europe after its debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

2014 Mazda6 a finalist for World Car Design of the Year METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

The 2014 Mazda6 is in the running for the World Car Design of the Year Award.

The 2014 Mazda6 has been named finalist for the 2013 World Car Design of the Year Award. Outlasting Renault, Land Rover and Volkswagen in the latest round of the voting, the 2014 Mazda6 will share the stage with the Aston Martin Vanquish and Jaguar F-Type at the New York

International Auto Show where a winner will be announced during a press conference on March 28. The World Car of the Year awards were inaugurated in 2003 to reflect the reality of the global marketplace as well as to recognize and reward automotive excellence on an international scale, and are intended to complement, not compete, with existing national and regional Car of the Year programs.

A jury of 66 top-level automotive journalists representing nearly every continent selects the finalists every year. For specific categories, such as Green Car and Design, a panel of experts in each field reviews each candidate and provides recommendations for the jurors.

Taking the desert by storm METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Leading-edge 6x6 all-wheel drive technology with AMG V8 biturbo power and looks that leave no doubt that the MercedesBenz G 63 AMG 6x6 vehicle is an off-roader represents the last word in forward-thrusting power far from the beaten track. With 544 hp, a 6x6 drive, lowrange ratio, five differential locks, portal axles, tire pressure control system and a special chassis, it allows this vehicle to make good progress in environments where the concept of individual mobility normally bites the dust as soon as the road ends. But anyone who imagines that this is a Dakar-Rally-style vehicle is on the wrong track. Thanks to the wealth of interior enhancements from the AMG stable, the occupants can enjoy the highest possible degree of comfort, even when negotiating the worst that the combined forces of topography

and meteorology can throw at them. The exclusive touches even extend to the load area which is finished in solid bamboo. Despite its unique drive technology, the show vehicle does not actually represent a new development in terms of technology. After 34 years of G-Class production, there is such a large array of “G” parts to draw on that the G 63 AMG 6x6 uses almost exclusively seriesproduction components under the skin. The G 63 AMG 6x6 welcomes its occupants aboard with an exclusive ambience of classic red or light brown designo leather with contrasting topstitching and attractive diamond-pattern quilting. The four electrically adjustable individual seats are heated and ventilated. The rear compartment is equipped with a special centre console while the roof liner and pillars are finished in an Alcantara covering.

Kia wins four ‘red dot’ awards METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Kia’s design team has won four prestigious ‘red dot’ design awards, including a ‘Best of the Best’ distinction for the new Kia pro_ cee’d in the product design category. The Kia cee’d five-door, cee’d Sportswagon and Rondo Urban Utility Vehicle (known as Carens in Europe) models collected ‘Winner’ awards. Along with the iF product design award in November 2012, this is the second prize won by the Kia pro_cee’d before the new model goes on sale later this month in Europe. The four 2013 awards bring the total number of Kia’s red dot wins to 10 since 2009. Kia’s Soul, Venga, Sportage Compact Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) and Kia Optima mid-sized sedan (the latter was awarded the coveted ‘Best of the Best’ prize) were followed last year by awards for the Kia Rio five-Door hatchback and the A-segment Kia Picanto. The Design Centre of North RhineWestphalia founded the red dot awards programme in 1955, and it is now one of the most prestigious design contests in the world.
