Victoria has its chance to shine

Volunteer team helps city get ready to welcome curlers, fans to 2013 Ford World Men’s Championships

I

t’s a sunny morning and two grown women are busy digging in the sand behind the Victoria Curling Centre on Quadra Street. But for Susan Morriss and Judy Tuson, filling up faux curling rocks to weigh them down – they’re part of a display in the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre lobby – is just one small job among many that volunteers are undertaking in preparation for the 2013 Ford World Men’s Curling Championships. The nine-day event gets underway tomorrow (March 30) at the Save-On Centre. Canada’s Don Descoteau Brad Jacobs’ rink takes on Team China in the first Reporting draw at 2 p.m. Volunteer co-ordinator Todd Troyer, a longtime curler himself, was part of the volunteer crew for the 2005 Ford Worlds, the first sporting event held in Victoria’s new arena. He remembers things being somewhat frantic heading into that event. “It was a new beast. We hadn’t had one of these since the 1985 Briar (at the old Memorial Arena),” he recalls. “But we got into a rhythm.” Not surprisingly, the majority of his roughly 500-member volunteers crew are curlers, primarily from the Victoria Curling Centre but also from Esquimalt, Juan de Fuca and Glen Meadows clubs. Those working the main venue will be easy to spot in their official blue jackets, engaged as scorers, ice cleaners, statisticians and in other jobs. Many more work behind the scenes as drivers, set builders, banquet organizers and more. A key member of the ceremonies committee, Barry Turner of Colwood is co-ordinating much of the pre-game pomp and pageantry for each games draw.

Volunteers Susan Morriss, left, and Judy Tuson fill up mock curling rocks with sand to weigh them down, before taking them to the front of the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. The rocks became part of a display that will greet spectators for the 2013 Ford World Men’s Curling Championships, which open tomorrow (March 30). The team of roughly 500 volunteers is doing a wide variety of jobs in preparation for and during the nine-day event. Don Descoteau/News staff

women’s championships in Victoria, he is excited to once again be part of a worldclass event. “Victoria is a showcase city and we’ve got a pretty good show for the rest of the world to see,” he says. From the piping in of the teams, to assigning placard holders and flag bearers for each country, even arranging the dignitaries for the opening ceremonies, the goal is to create a good performance for the live crowd and the TV cameras. “Putting on a good show is what the ceremonies group does, three times a day,” Turner says. “We have to work closely together and under pressure of a timeline.”

Fellow volunteer Debra Gibson is on the rallies and banquets committee plus lounge duty. She doesn’t curl, but comes from a family of curlers and has been a huge fan of the game for years. Her first shift starts at 10 a.m. Saturday and she can’t wait for everything to get going. “I’m really excited and really looking forward to whole week,” she says. “It’s my first time volunteering for something like this. I wasn’t able to do it last time, but I really wanted to get involved. This is about the city, and the chance to make the city look good to the world is just amazing.” Victoria Curling Centre general manager

Bill Chester is impressed with the large number of people from his club who joined the volunteer ranks for the event. “There’s no doubt curling comes from the heart, so whenever there’s an event of this nature coming to Victoria, everybody gets involved,” he says. “You put aside what you can and you help out.” Volunteers have been working on the various aspects of the nine-day competition for more than a year – toplevel committee members even longer, as the city was awarded the event in October 2011.

Good Friday service remembers victims of the street Rev. Al Tysick to lead memorial service, gather city’s homeless community Daniel Palmer News staff

Rev. Al Tysick is on a first-name basis with most of the hundreds of people who make their beds on Victoria sidewalks, in shelters and in temporary housing every night. He knows the Easter long weekend is markedly quieter downtown, as many public service and office employees retreat to celebrate with family or take a muchneeded vacation. “People on the street don’t get a long weekend, they’re in constant survival mode,” Tysick said, between his daily hospital and shelter visits. It’s his familiarity with the streets that makes his remembrance of the 30 people who died on Victoria’s streets last year so much more meaningful. “These people suffered unnecessarily,” he said. On Friday morning, Tysick and volunteers with the Dandelion Society will read out those 30 names during a Good Friday service and breakfast in Centennial

Square at 9:30 a.m. Last year, more than 100 people turned up for food and fellowship. “If there’s anything about religious holidays the homeless community can relate to, it’s the suffering of Jesus Christ, which is traditionally remembered on Good Friday,” he said. Chris Geater, a community relations officer at Victoria Cool Aid Society, called the deaths a tragedy, but said units such as the Victoria Integrated Community Outreach Team have been successful in connecting the street population with valuable help. “VICOT is really helping those people stop or avoid becoming part of the ceremonies like the one on Friday,” he said. More supportive housing is needed to help transition people from shelters to self-sufficiency, Geater added. “Every night, we have people we have to turn away because of a lack of space.” Tysick will ask people in attendance at the Good Friday service to write down their own burdens

Fire department offers free smoke alarms to Victoria residents Esquimalt and Oak Bay lack similar programs Daniel Palmer News staff

Don Denton/News staff

Victoria Fire Department Lt.-Insp. Brad Sifert holds a common household fire alarm. The department is handing out free alarms as part of its campaign to see all homes in the city equipped with the potentially lifesaving devices.

City parkades are now electric car friendly

The City of Victoria has thrown its support behind electric car owners, with the installation of eight new charging stations in its parkades. The Centennial Square, Johnson Street and Bastion Square locations each have one charging station, the View Street parkade has two and the Broughton Street car park has three units. Normal parking fees apply when vehicles are inside the parkades, but cars can be charged at no extra cost. Ask a parking attendant for an activation card to use the stations. Electric bikes can also charge up at city parkades.

The Victoria Fire Department is offering free smoke alarms to residents as part of a province-wide push to protect every home in B.C. Last year, a study by the University of Fraser Valley and Surrey Fire Services revealed almost 70 per cent of B.C. homes involved in fires did not have functioning smoke alarms. The study also showed three quarters of 663 fire-related deaths across Canada were the result of smoke alarms that never sounded.

Victoria began implementing the program at the same time as Saanich last October, while Langford has provided free smoke alarms for more than five years. “We carry smoke alarms on every engine and in all of our duty vehicles,” said Langford Deputy Fire Chief Kerry Zado. “Whenever we respond to a call, we make sure to never leave the house until it has a working smoke alarm in it.” Esquimalt and Oak Bay fire departments do not have free smoke alarm programs, but both departments said they respond to residents who request help installing the devices. Victoria purchased 200 smoke alarms and will assess demand in the coming months, said Fire Prevention Officer Brad Sifert, adding he received 50 phone calls on

IN BRIEF

Alzheimer society gets funding boost

The B.C. Ministry of Health announced Monday it will provide $2 million to expand a successful program through the B.C. Alzheimer Society. The First Link program allows health-care workers and advocates to reach out to patients and their families who are dealing with dementia. It currently operates in seven B.C. regions, including Greater Victoria. “We haven’t had a chance to sit back and look at how we’ll specifically roll out this funding,” said Kathy Kennedy, director of

Tuesday alone. “If callers aren’t in our jurisdiction, I just find out the location and send an email to their fire department,” he said. Saanich fire crews have installed 110 smoke alarms in nearly 100 homes since October, said Lt. Andrew Collmar. “It’s been very responsive,” he said. “Our fire chief has dedicated $1,000 to this program (this year), and we’re hoping it will be ongoing. Our ultimate goal is to have a smoke alarm in every house.” Fire crews are also willing to help residents with optimal smoke alarm placement in their homes.

Alzheimer Society board member Jim Mann spoke in Oak Bay about the need for better support for the 70,000 people in the province with dementia. That number is expected to reach 177,000 by 2038, according to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

Mayors question receipt of Queen’s medals Carol Hamilton mulls return of her award Kyle Wells News staff

In Colwood Mayor Carol Hamilton’s office sits, in its box, a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal that she hasn’t told many people about because she is seriously considering sending it back. She didn’t ask for it, doesn’t know what led to her nomination and is concerned that she and other mayors receiving the medal dilutes the honour bestowed on more deserving recipients. “It sits there because I haven’t yet decided on how this should be,” Hamilton said. In celebration of the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne, a total of 60,000 medals were produced to “honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians,” states the Governor General’s website. Recipients come from all walks of life and have included such people as Sidney Crosby and Justin Bieber, along with a great number of citizens honoured for volunteer work in their communities. Also awarded have been more than 1,000 mayors, by way of nominations made by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. So many, that some have refused to receive them. Not everyone sees the federation nominations as a problem. North Saanich Mayor Alice Finall said the honour was a delightful surprise. “I thought it was lovely, it was a very

Mayors received those medals. Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard received a Diamond Jubilee medal from the province, but is uneasy with politicians giving other politicians awards. “That part of it I’m not too comfortable with,” he said. Courtesy of the City of Colwood “I’m much more interested in Colwood Mayor Carol Hamilton presents a the volunteer citizens that we Diamond Jubilee Medal to Geoff Amy on Feb. recognized.” Saanich council awarded 25.

B.C.’s elite vying for Grand Pacific chess crown Chess players from 6 to 80 are vying for top spot at this weekend’s seventh annual Grand Pacific Open tournament. The local contingent will be joined by numerous out-of-town players, taking the total number of competitors over the 100 mark. Surrey’s Tanraj Sohal, 15, winner of the B.C. Open championship last month, provides an example of where chess can take a young player. In January he was awarded a full ride scholarship to Webster University in St. Louis. Other players in the international field expected to challenge for the title include former B.C. champion Jack Yoos and current champ Butch Villavieja, both of Vancouver, and women’s Grandmaster Katerina Rohonyan from Redmond, Wash. Play begins at 6 p.m. today (March 29) and continues during the afternoon and evening on Saturday and Sunday.

Easter breakfast helps foundation  Easter Sunday breakfast will be served for the first time at the Willows Beach Tea Room this weekend.   It’s been a winter of innovation at the historic landmark operated by the Kiwanis Club of Oak Bay, a season of Sunday breakfasts that will end April 7 with a projected $10,000 generated to benefit the Kiwanis Pavilion complex care facility. For six decades as only a warm-weather facility, the Kiwanis Tea Room in Willows Park began opening for winter Sunday breakfasts last January and the experiment has proven quite popular. “On sunny days we serve over

100 breakfasts – as many as 120 – in the three hours,” said Brian Beckett, acting chair of the Oak Bay Kiwanis Pavilion Foundation. Wall-to-wall windows provide a panorama view of sea, beach front and park. “But on grey days we still have 70 or 80 here for breakfast,” Beckett said. Thermal windows – and now an upgraded electrical system allowing better heating in what was originally designed as a summer-use building – has broadened the enterprise horizon for Oak Bay Kiwanians and their associated boards. The Pavilion Foundation sup-

ports the 122-bed, dementia-specializing Kiwanis Pavilion at 3034 Cedar Hill Rd., owned and operated by the Oak Bay Kiwanis Health Care Society. After the foundation serves its final regular breakfast on April 7, and following two cleanup weekends by club members, regular Tea Room operations by Oak Bay Kiwanis and community volunteers will begin April 27 for the five-month summer season at Willows Park, beside Beach Drive in Oak Bay. The Easter Sunday breakfast will be served March 31 from 9 a.m. to noon and includes a choice of two menus at $10 each. editor@oakbaynews.com

Hydrogen A quick peek at the website plugshare.com and you’ll find Highway close to 50 locations to charge your electric car in Greater Victoria – but will you find 50 electric cars? Most electric vehicle owners have their own charging stations. These other spots, most of them installed by a business or government, are set up for convenience. The provincial government aims to have 570 charging stations set up throughout the province – at a cost of $2.7 million – this year. The scheme is reminiscent of the mid2000s Hydrogen Highway, heavily promoted by former California governator Arnold Schwarzenegger and then B.C. Liberal Premier Gordon Campbell. At the time, hydrogen fuel was lauded as the next big thing, but nary a personal vehicle fuelled by hydrogen travels our roads today. Yet the EV charge is gaining momentum, and as more municipalities buy in to the technology, the better the infrastructure will become. While consumers may still be shocked by the sticker price, electric vehicles have garnered glowing praise, and consumer demand will soon drive prices down. The convenience of charging stations in downtown parkades, at local libraries and in shopping malls is certainly an encouraging sign. With charging stations beginning to crop up from Sidney to Port Hardy – and in City of Victoria parkades – it may not be long until we can fold up our cars and pop them into a briefcase as we arrive at our destination.

Before law required pasteurization of milk, raw milk was one of the ways diphtheria was transmitted. The first to discover phages was a Canadian born in Montreal: Félix d’Hérelle (1873-1949). He found a phage of dysenteric bacteria that could clear a cloudy culture without the phage being retained by a porcelain filter. In time, other phages were discovered and became models in the study of the molecular basis of life. Today we know that phages may play an important role as a genetic shuttle between different types of bacteria, which is one mechanism that explains the development of resistance of bacteria to antibiotics. Between 1896 and 1899, before his discovery of bacteriophage, d’Hérelle received a grant from the Canadian Minister of Revenue to develop a method of fermentation of maple syrup for the production of whisky. The minister was HenriGustave Joly de Lotbinière (18291908), the seventh governor of British Columbia from 1900 to 1906. Réal Roy is a microbiologist and an assistant professor in the department of biology at the University of Victoria.

LETTERS

Wearing a helmet is critical for cyclists’ safety Re: Driver remains fearful of riding in traffic in the city (Letters, March 22) I devote much of my time promoting a campaign sponsored by the British Columbia Brain Injury Association (Helmet hair or Long Term Care) designed to make others, especially children, aware of the importance regarding head protection and the benefits of helmets. Therefore, the statement in this letter, “feeling sorry for cyclists obeying traffic laws and wearing helmets,” motivates me even more to promote helmet safety to kids and hopefully save a few lives. I agree there are definitely things that need changing, such as lane and barrier designs, and drivers’ attitudes toward cyclists here in B.C., but what should not change is the requirement to wear a helmet when riding a bike. It is the one fundamental piece of equipment that must remain a constant in the attempt to prevent serious brain injury. Wearing a helmet may not protect you from being hit by a car, but it will protect you from one of the most serious injuries you could unfortunately ever receive, permanent brain damage. As I always say, the choice is between ‘Helmet Hair or Long term Care.’ Happy helmet wearing. Greg Goldberg Victoria

Quality of letters questioned by reader Re: Much admired Uruguayan leader sets bad precedent (Letters, March 22) Gregory Hartnell doesn’t seem to understand the differences between sustainability, birth control and eugenics. In his letter, he encourages us to be confused about the words, too. The dictionary defines eugenics as “a science that deals with the improvement (as by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed.” While eugenics does usually imply a kind of forced population control, which sounds quite scary, examples of how it is practiced these days are quite varied. Arranged marriages, apartheid, the caste system and ethnic cleansing – all can be considered “code for eugenics.” Forced population control is very different from making abortion free, legal, safe and accessible. Why is it a surprise to anyone that “greens” are also in favour of legal, safe and accessible birth control? People are the biggest cause of climate change, so fewer (unwanted) children is one (and not the only) way to slow the environmental damage we are already causing in this world. Even if someone who is green happens to also be in favour of birth control, why is this an

issue? Making a statement like “green is code for eugenics” makes Mr. Hartnell sound like another right-wing, anti-abortion, anti-environmentalist from the U.S. Can’t you be a little more selective with your letters? Alan Johnson Victoria

Reference to Agenda 21 like 9/11 conspiracy

B.C. Ferries top-heavy in management

Re: Much-admired Uruguayan leader sets bad precedent (Letters, March 22) For the third time in as many months, your newspaper has printed letters warning readers about the supposedly ominous Agenda 21, a voluntary, nonbinding environmental plan from the United Nations. Is your editorial section so desperate for content that it includes arguments that are the intellectual equivalent (using the term generously) of a 9/11 conspiracy theory? For context, in the recent Victoria federal byelection, Christian Heritage Party candidate Philip Ney included similar warnings about Agenda 21 in his platform, and received 0.49 per cent of the vote. And the 192 people who chose this last-place candidate likely include more than just those who put down their cheese-curl snacks and got away from their basement

There is a lot of talk about cutting sailings and raising fares by B.C. Ferries, but nothing about looking at cutting costs at their head office. There are too many vicepresidents and a huge public relations department that is totally unnecessary. Tourists can get all the info they need from the website or a travel agent. Frankly the highly trained and professional union employees could run the ferries without the interference of people at head office, many of whom have no experience in the field and

Re: Urban speed limit reduction Before proceeding with changing the posted speed limits from 50 to 40 km/h, an inquiry into the cost of changing all the signage should be considered. As ballooning tax hikes are imminent with the new sewage project, paying more for this project as a taxpayer does not interest me. You can set the speed limit at whatever you want and if there isn’t proper enforcement nothing will change. The problem begins with enforcement and will end there. Christina Smith Saanich

Group aims to preserve local variety of Garry oak Kyle Slavin News staff

A Garry oak tree grown in Saanich is genetically different than a Garry oak from Chilliwack – let alone the tree species’ American kin from Washington State. That’s why a Victoria-based environmental group, the Garry Oak Meadow Preservation Society (GOMPS), is embarking on a project to grow healthy Garry oaks from local acorns. “From a genetic point of view, the Garry oaks in our area are producing acorns that will have the best chances of survival here because they will inherit the traits that their parent trees

are developing,” said Michael Croteau, a member of GOMPS. Earlier this month, Victoria council approved a plan to sublease an unused nursery in Saanich to GOMPS, where the organization will sow and grow Garry oak seedlings. GOMPS declined to say exactly where the nursery is located. “We need to produce a large and healthy enough tree that can be planted without fear of damage in our urban forests,” Croteau said. Once the trees are big enough, they’ll be sold to municipalities, regional groups, public bodies and the general public. “People in our community

are seeing the trees falling, and they’re not being replaced fast enough for an oak tree to fill the space,” Croteau said. Growing Victoria Garry oaks in optimum conditions will give them the best chance of survival once they’re planted in an urban forest. GOMPS aims to produce roughly 1,000 trees each year. But that will take some time. Croteau anticipates the first lot of trees won’t be available for five to seven years. Sowing likely won’t happen for another month or two. For more information, visit garryoak.info. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Inventors heading to Dragons’ Den, international competition Kyle Wells News staff

With little money, a fair share of smarts and plenty of teamwork, a group of Saanich and Oak Bay youth are heading to Toronto and California with a real stand-up robotic device. The Hurricanes Lego robotics team, composed of four homeschooled Grade 8 boys, won a regional competition last month and is heading to Lego Land in Carlsbad, Calif., in May for the international championships. A trip to Toronto is also being hastily planned for the end of April, for a filming of CBC’s Dragons’ Den, where the boys will get to pitch their invention and perhaps find themselves with venture capital. What they have come up with is a robotic lift system for a wheelchair that helps people in and out of the chair. The device fits onto any standard wheelchair, or any other chair, and has a lift which moves the chair into a nearupright position. This allows the person in the wheelchair to more easily stand or elevate themselves. “They can converse at eye level, they can reach higher things, reach tables or counters,” said team member Micah Alders. The team started the design in September and, once on paper, the actual device took three to four weeks to build. Its framework is all aluminum, cut and bolted by the team, with padding on the seat and arms and a seatbelt, for safety (Lego robotics kits use mechanical devices, not Lego blocks). First Lego league is an international competitive robotics program for nine- to 14-year-olds. Teams have at least one adult coach but the youth members must do all of the work. “We can’t get our dads to build it all for us,” Liam Ensing said. There are many facets to

There is managing to build, program, operate, and keep functioning, whatever robotic device the team has devised. There’s also the element of teamwork and selling your ideas to judges. “A lot of things can go wrong,” Liam said. “Your files can get corrupted right before the competition, your robot’s actual structural integrity can stop working.” “You might have built this robot in your house and it worked perfectly,” Micah said. “(But) only one thing has to unclip and cause more friction and all of a sudden every single thing will be off.” Team members, which also includes Paul Gevers and Mason Jennings, explained

that robotics teaches them computer programming, engineering, physics and math, along with teamwork. “I like working with my hands a lot,” Mason said. “We were all practising soldering all the wires together and stuff like that.” To get to Toronto and California, the team must pay its own way, with a price tag of $15,000. To raise money, the boys are looking for help. On Friday, March 29 the team will be at the Wal-Mart at Uptown with their wheelchair device to talk to people, explain their invention and accept donations. Donations can be brought or mailed to Jennings Florists, 2508 Estevan Ave., V8R 2S7. reporter@vicnews.com

Local jazz pianist has the world on a string Victoria jazz stalwart celebrates 90th birthday Kyle Wells News staff

From Jerry Bryant’s perspective the world is flat, and that’s just the way he’d like it to stay. The jazz pianist, vocalist and former educator, who turns 90 Monday, isn’t interested in any major highs or lows. He attributes his longevity to taking life on an even keel, appreciating all it has given him and constantly striving to learn. “It affects people differently,” said Bryant on the topic of age. “I guess my gift, the phenomenon, the miracle, seems to be my ability to be on new ground every day.” In celebration of this milestone, the Island Big Band, with which Bryant has played for about seven years, is getting together for a special birthday performance April 1 at Hermann’s Jazz Club.

Kyle Wells/News staff

Jazz pianist and singer Jerry Bryant turns 90 years old on Monday, April 1, and he will be celebrating the occasion with the Island Big Band at a special performance at Hermann’s Jazz Club. Bryant started playing with the band after his wife, Cecilia, died in 2005 and he found himself in need of a purpose. He retired from teaching in 1983, after a long career as an educator in both the United States and Canada. His long list of achievements includes starting the jazz pro-

gram at Esquimalt High school. “This band turned out to be a kind of spiritual refuge and it’s growing into a beautiful thing,” Bryant said. “It’s spiritual nourishment, really. It’s everything I need to be spiritually healthy.” Music has been a part of Bryant’s life since the beginning.

Born on April Fool’s day in 1923 in Kansas City, his uncle was famous blues singer and rock and roll pioneer Big Joe Turner. Bryant grew up around musicians such as Oscar Peterson and Bill Haley, soaking in the music surrounding him. Even after a long lifetime of playing and teaching music, Bryant said he is still constantly learning. One of the reasons he joined the Big Band was to improve his sight reading, a skill in which, he confesses, he has never excelled. This desire to learn and grow is what Bryant believes keeps him feeling young. “I just want to stay and grow and learn how to read these charts and keep up with these guys. This is what’s making me look and appear to be cute and young. It’s a chance to try and keep up with these people.” Band trumpeter Bryn Badel said it’s an honour to have Bryant in the band. “As the bearer of the torch he’s handing it off to us,” Badel said. “It’s really important to pay tribute to that.

“The jazz tradition is really an oral tradition. … A lot of it’s handed down. The only way to learn it is to be in the moment, to live with guys like that day in and day out – and to learn from them.” Through all the music he has heard, a few pieces and musicians stand out for Bryant. He admires Count Basie as a musician, for his style of understatement. I’ve Got the World on a String by Harold Arlen, made famous by Cab Calloway and Frank Sinatra, is a favourite tune. Perhaps most appropriate is another favourite of Bryant’s, Duke Ellington’s I Guess I’m Just a Lucky So-and-So. “What I believe and what I love, it doesn’t have to be proclaimed from the highest tree loudly,” Bryant said. “To be privileged is to stay and support and be in the background. … I’m just lucky to be here.” Tickets for Jerry Bryant’s 90th Birthday Party are $10 and are available at Hermann’s Jazz Club (753 View St.). Show is at 8 p.m. reporter@vicnews.com

VICTORIA NEWS - Friday, March 29, 2013

Stars shine in Love Letters Victoria’s Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre is in the midst of a run of A.R. Gurney’s Pulitzer Prize nominated drama Love Letters. The show, which runs until March 30 at the McPherson Playhouse, stars Canadian Hollywood star Bruce Greenwood alongside Canadian television icon Janet Wright. Greenwood is known for his appearances in Star Trek, Double Jeopardy, The Core, Thirteen Days, Capote, Eight Below, Firehouse Dog and, most recently, alongside Denzel Washington in Flight. He has also played prominent roles in a trio of award winning Canadian films by Atom Egoyan: Exotica, The Sweet Hereafter and Ararat. He is joined by Wright – star of stage, television and film – who has appeared at many of the major theatres across Canada including Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre and Ontario’s Stratford Festival. Two seasons ago she starred as Ma Joad in the Stratford Festival’s critically acclaimed production of The Grapes of Wrath. Though she is best known for her successful portrayal of Emma Leroy on CTV’s Corner Gas (2004-09), Wright has also appeared in many prominent films including Robert Altman’s McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Bordertown Café, and A Perfect Storm with

George Clooney. “I am delighted to be working again with two of my favourite actors,” said Brian Richmond, Blue Bridge artistic director and director of Love Letters. Having directed both Greenwood and Wright in a crosscountry tour of the Canadian Musical Cruel Tears in the mid-1970s, Richmond is an ardent fan of both Greenwood’s and Wright’s talents. “It is wonderful to have watched their work over the decades and to have an opportunity to work with them on this superb piece of writing,” he said. “Victoria audiences are in for a thrill,” Richmond added. “This is a rare opportunity to see two of our country’s finest actors rejoin their creative energies at the height of their careers.” Love Letters is at the McPherson Playhouse until March 30. Tickets can be purchased individually, or at a special price by buying a Blue Pass for two plays or more to the company’s upcoming season. For Blue Passes call the Blue Bridge office at 250-385-4462. For single tickets call the McPherson box office at 250-386-6121, go to rmts.bc.ca or visit the McPherson box office in Centennial Square. llavin@vicnews.com

Get ready to walk to fight MS More than 600 people are expected to walk, run and roll their way along the Oak Bay waterfront April 14, helping raise money and awareness for the fight against multiple sclerosis. People living with MS themselves will be among those participating in the annual Scotiabank MS Walk. Others will be taking part in support of others or to remember loved ones. “Whether it’s for themselves, their mother, brother or friend, participants have many personal reasons to join in,” says Ashley Hodgins, manager of development, South & Central Vancouver Island Chapter of the MS Society of B.C.

While fundraising is one of the primary goals of the annual event, it’s also an essential tool to help raise awareness of the disease and its impact on individuals and families. Most often diagnosed in young adults from 15 to 40, MS is a chronic, often disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord that can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. Canadians have one of the world’s highest rates of multiple sclerosis, which is also the most common neurological disease

The MS Society, through such events as the annual Scotiabank MS Walk, May’s MS Awareness Month and July’s MS Bike Tour – the Cowichan Valley Grape Escape – raises money to fund research to find a cure. Proceeds also support local programs for people affected by MS that can help them maintain their quality of life and deal with the issues related to the disease. Initiatives include information and referral, supportive counselling, self-help and support groups, financial assistance and recreation and social programs.

Ready to rock Men’s World Curling starts Saturday Travis Paterson News staff

They’re young, they’re fit, and they’re not worried about the field they’re up against. The Brad Jacobs rink from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., make up Team Canada at the Ford World Men’s Curling Championship beginning tomorrow (March 30) at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. It’s their first time at the World Championships. They’re one of the youngest Canadian teams ever and they’re not pretending they’re a favourite just because they’re wearing the maple leaf. Canada’s first game of the roundrobin schedule is against China’s Rui Liu at 2 p.m. Saturday. “To be honest, we haven’t scouted the other teams. We feel like our biggest opponents are ourselves, we’re trying to play at 100 per cent. We’ve always looked at it that way, and we’ll continue to look at it that way for the rest of our lives.”

Jacobs, 27, is the youngest Canadian to skip at the world championship since Kevin Martin was 24 in 1991. Vice-skip and third Ryan Fry is 34, second E.J. Harnden is 29 and lead Ryan Harnden is 26. Even their alternate Matt Dumontelle is only 28. “We’re more concerned with what the rocks are going to be doing. Really, the opponents are out there to help you to read the ice and help you make your shots.” Three of the foursome have represented Northern Ontario at the Brier the past five years but it wasn’t until they added Fry at third that they managed to win the 2013 Brier in Edmonton earlier this month. “This is our first time wearing the maple leaf on the back. Once we put the clothes on for practice, we’ll feel like what it is to be Team Canada and what it stands for.” Canada faces a fierce field, with teams such as Scotland’s two-time world champion David Murdoch, which lost to Canada’s Randy Ferbey rink in a riveting 2005 Men’s World final, also played in Victoria; Sweden’s Niklas Edin, which won the Victoria Curling Classic in an equally tough field last week; and

busy,” Jacobs said. “After the brier it was back to work, practice, gym, supper and then bed.” Results from this week’s Worlds will help define the field for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The top seven finishers from this year’s and last year’s World Championships will go to Sochi, as well as two more teams from an upcoming qualifying event in December.

Though a lot of the teams here for Worlds competed in the Classic in Esquimalt’s Archie Browning Sports Centre last week, the Jacobs rink was back to the grindstone. The team only arrived in Victoria yes-

terday, by way of Sault Ste. Marie, Toronto, Vancouver, and Victoria. In fact, since winning the Brier on March 10, it’s been a mad rush to get ready. “We thought about asking past champions (for advice), but never got around to it, we’ve been too

Phantom magic on ice Big season from little program Travis Paterson News staff

The Victoria Phantoms senior A women’s hockey team recently stamped a solid ending to a most precarious season in the South Coast Female Amateur Hockey League. Despite taking a team of just 11 players, with two forward lines, the Phantoms finished third at provincials, tying the eventual champions Kamloops Vibe in Game 1 but losing to the Richmond Devils 2-1 in the semifinal. (Victoria won 11-4 over Simon Fraser University in Game 2.) In the fallout, coach John LouPoy is hoping the team can use the upcoming offseason as a time to recruit a few extra bodies for next year. “Going to provincials with two lines is, nobody does that, it’s insane, you can’t expect to win any games with two lines,” LouPoy said. “Obviously it would be great to have as many women out as possible to tryouts in September. Senior A is very high level hockey and the Island is a hotbed of talent for this level of playing, but getting the players to commit is

www.vicnews.com • A17 Senior A is meant to be competitive and the Phantoms want to win. Not just any player can make the cut, even if it doesn’t make Lou-Poy popular with every player who wants to be a Phantom. Then again, no coach ever is. Nor is Lou-Poy running some sort of dictatorship. After a few years with Lou-Poy at the helm, the team made the decision to self coach themselves. It lasted one year, and they asked him back. Since Lou-Poy became involved in 2008-09 the Phantoms have been to provincials three times and won it twice, in 2009 and 2010. The game plan with two lines is simple. “We have to play very carefully, and we can only get away playing the way we do because we have very smart players,” Lou-Poy said. “We try to slow the game down. We try to create lots of faceoffs. Anything to get a break. It was a tough go for us this season and it’s remarkable that we did this well.”

Sharks are VHL champs

Plus, senior A women’s hockey (ages 19 and up) tends to fly under the radar in B.C., and it’s no differ-

ent in Greater Victoria. Because the number of senior A caliber players is limited in here, Lou-Poy, who has coached the team four of the past five seasons, is saddled with some tough decisions. (Also threatening the team’s future is

the recent disbandment of the South Island Breakers midget AAA team, for girls aged 16 to 18. There has often been as many as eight or nine Breakers graduates playing on the Phantoms in a year, with five this season.)

The Sharks are Victoria Hockey League champions for 2012-13. Chad Linger, Tyler Tachnyk and Ben King scored to lift the Sharks to a 3-1 win over the Lions on Tuesday night in Game 4 of the best-of-five VHL playoff final. Goalie Dave Brumby was named the Sharks’ playoff MVP. Lions’ forward Clayton Lainsbury, a Victoria Salsa alumnus from 2003-04, led all playoff scorers with seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points in 12 games.

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

Oak Bay hosts star-studded ‘Miracle’ gala performance Tickets on sale soon for David Foster Foundation fundraiser Kyle Wells News staff

The lights are ready to be dimmed and the tables set as the Oak Bay Beach Hotel prepares to host its first David Foster Miracle Concert on May 4. The hotel hoped to host a gala weekend last year, but the theatre wasn’t ready in time. With the hotel up and running since December, co-owner Kevin Walker is eager to host the celebrity event, headed up by Foster. “We’re very excited about it. (Foster) will not only be sharing his music, he’ll be sharing his story with us,” Walker said. “People will go away with a sense that they’ve made a friend in David Foster.” The David Foster Foundation, which started in 1986, raises money to support families of children receiving organ transplants. The foundation’s annual gala event is its primary fundraising event. Another source of funding came this year in the form of volunteer work by South Island Telus Community Ambassadors, a group of current and retired Telus employees that raise money in the community for a number of causes.

Foundation keeps families in mind

Oak Bay Beach Hotel owner Kevin Walker revealed he had a group in the restaurant for dinner recently who called him over for a chat. They told him their daughter had a heart transplant 13 years ago, at three weeks old. The family was helped by the David Foster Foundation, which paid their mortgage and rented them an apartment in Toronto so they could be with their child. “It was a beautiful moment for me,” Walker said, adding they host the event so “Canadian families can have the support that their really cherish, deserve and value when they’re facing their moment of crisis.”

Doug and Doreen Penn with the 1957 Corvette they rode in on their first date.

Absolute Heaven on B.C.’s Sunshine Coast is home to a ‘57 Corvette retirement project Doug Penn raised three children before retiring as the deputy fire chief for the City of Burnaby and moving to Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast. His destination was ALYN EDWARDS Absolute Heaven: that CLASSIC is the Absolute Heaven RIDES Oceanfront Suites and Spa B&B that he and his wife Doreen created for their life after retirement. They brought with them the 1957 Corvette that Doug has owned since 1976. That car conveyed them on their first date. “Her father thought I was rich driving such a nice car,” Doug recalls. Once they had completed renovations on their B&B, which includes two large private suites, the couple turned their attention to the Corvette which had been stored for 33 years.

The beautiful styling that characterized the 1957 Corvette is enhanced by the black paint with silver accents. INSET: The stunning red interior is exactly as it was in the original.

They budgeted $40,000 for the project. But once it was started, they decided to do a complete body-offthe-frame restoration. These cars are rare as only 6,339 examples of the 1957 Corvette were built. Doug had loved the early Corvettes since buying his first 1957 model in Utah in 1968. “I paid $975 for the car and sold it two years later for $2,000 and thought I had made a fortune,” he recalls. In 1976, he was contacted by a university classmate who had moved to San Jose, California. His friend had spotted another 1957 Corvette advertised in the local newspaper. It belonged to a man’s son who had moved to Montana and his dad wanted it out of the garage. Doug paid $2,800 for the Corvette which had been a show car at one time with much of the drive train and suspension chrome-plated. The car was powered by a 427 cubic inch engine and a Turbo 400 transmission from a 1966 Corvette. It had Recaro racing seats, air shocks and drag slicks so it probably was run at the drag strip. Doug brought the car to Canada and drove it for a few summers while he was still single and then put it into storage after he and Doreen started a family. “I remember taking my two sons, Craig and Tom for a ride with the top off when they were very young and they hung on tight for fear of flying out of the car.” he says. He credits friend Larry Nygard with helping to get the restoration project started and moving forward. Travis Brown of Sharp Touch Restorations in Maple Ridge ironed out the fiberglass body that proved to be very rough and showing the effects of a few collisions over the years. More than 115 feet of fiberglass mat and 17 gallons of resin were used to get the fiberglass body into perfect condition. The mechanical work, including the installation of a 350 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 crate motor and Turbo 350 automatic transmission, was done by Laurie Miller of Super Sports Motors in Pitt Meadows. The car is painted in its original Onyx Black colour with Inca Silver coves. With the exception of the motor and transmission, the car is factory correct. Continued on Pg. B3

Porsche Centre Victoria celebrates groundbreaking for new location Porsche Centre Victoria colleagues gathered Monday to celebrate the groundbreaking for the new Porsche Centre Victoria, to be located beside Volkswagen Victoria on Douglas Street. “Today marks the beginning of a new building that will be the home for people that live and breathe sports car passion and spirit,” said Paul Rossmo, General Manager of the Porsche Centre Victoria. “I’m sure I don’t have to introduce Porsche to you, after a record year in 2012, you can see more

and more of these exotic German sports cars on our streets. “It is a privilege for myself and all of our staff to work with and for a brand like Porsche. Everything we do as a team has a reason, and that is to provide our clients with the best sports cars in which to enjoy driving to the maximum.” Addressing the crowd from beside architect’s rendering of the new building, “this photo gives you an idea that we are not going to build a building that could be mistaken for

anything else. It is uniquely Porsche, and like a 911, a Boxster, Cayman, or Cayenne, it was constructed in a way that form follows function. It will be ready for new technologies, like the soon-to-arrive plug-in hybrids and other parts of the e-mobility effort of Porsche.” It’s anticipated the new Porsche Centre Victoria will be completed next spring. Enthusiasts can follow the progress of the project via the company’s website, Facebook page, or twitter.

People over age 80 are the fastest growing segment of the population today and the number of those driving is also increasing. But what compensations are older drivers making to keep themselves safe on the road? How are gender, age, psychosocial and health factors influencing these decisions?

‘57 Corvette Continued from Pg. B1

Doug’s job was to find and acquire all the original parts necessary to put the car back into better-than-new condition. The reassembly went perfectly as Doug had labeled and numbered all the parts which he had stored on racks in his garage. “The car is phenomenal. It’s perfect. In the paint, you can see the reflection of cars all the way across a parking lot,” Doug says of the results. “Both my sons have driven the car and they joke about me never selling the car as they want it to stay in the family.” The restored Corvette is a popular attraction for guests at Doug and Doreen Penn’s Absolute Heaven Oceanfront B&B. “Everyone who stays here is pretty well blown away by the car,” Doug says. One guest from Germany went home and made a coffee table book of photos featuring the car and the property which he sent to the Penn’s. Would he do it again? Doug answers yes, because it is a car

that has sentimental value. But the final tally for the restoration was way over budget and he knows he could have bought one already restored for far less money. He rationalizes having his car restored this way: “The experience was so much fun and I got exactly what I wanted.” He and Doreen have plans to drive the restored car on a tour of the old U.S. Route 66. “I promised Travis Brown, who did the body work and paint, that the car wouldn’t become a trailer queen.” They plan to drive and show the car locally and attend the Coasters Car Club annual Sleepy Hollow Rod Run in Sechelt on the first weekend in August while their betterthan-new Corvette will continue to be a feature at their Absolute Heaven Oceanfront Suites and Spa B&B in Sechelt.

Doug Penn paid $2,800 for this 1957 Corvette in 1976. It had been a show and drag race car in San Jose

Rotary International:

Brentwood Bay Rotary hosts

Beyond B.C.’s borders, Rotary International’s 1.2 million members in more than 200 countries are committed to the philosophy of Service Above Self. “In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, you’ll find members volunteering in communities at home, and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation and eradicate polio,” explains the organization’s website, www.rotary.org As an idea, Rotary began more than 100 years ago with the Rotary Club of Chicago, formed on Feb. 23, 1905 by attorney Paul P. Harris. The name stems from the early practice of rotating meetings among members’ offices. “As Rotary grew, its mission expanded beyond serving club members’ professional and social interests. Rotarians began pooling their resources and contributing their talents to help serve communities in need...By July 1925, Rotary had grown to more than 2,000 clubs and an estimated

108,000 members. The organization’s distinguished reputation attracted presidents, prime ministers and a host of other luminaries to its ranks – among them author Thomas Mann, diplomat Carlos P. Romulo, humanitarian Albert Schweitzer and composer Jean Sibelius.” Today, in addition to the Brentwood Bay Rotary, the Capital Region is home to 11 clubs, including three on the Saanich Peninsula. The Sidney Club meets in the evening on Wednesday, the Sidney by the Sea Club meets at 7 a.m. Thursday, and the Brentwood Club meets at noon on Tuesday. For more information, visit www. rotaryvictoria.org.

Originally meeting at the old Brentwood Bay Inn – hence the name – today the Brentwood Bay Rotary Club meets at the Zanzibar Bistro every Tuesday at noon. As a small club with just 21 members, the meetings are relaxed and fun, with a variety of speakers and presentations providing both education and information. The group’s major fundraising event is the annual Saanich Fall Fair, where members, spouses, family and friends all pitch in to run a concession affectionately called “The Sugar Shack,” selling candy floss, snow cones, hot dogs and delicious soft ice cream. November and December also bring poinsettia sales.

Did you know? • The 30-year-old Brentwood Bay Rotary Club meets Tuesdays at 12 p.m. in the Zanzibar Bistro at the corner of Stelly’s Cross Road and West Saanich Road

Internationally, Brentwood Bay Rotary Club’s initiatives include clean water and economic development projects.

• Programs include guest speakers on a variety of community topics. For more information, call Jock Halliday at 250-544-1120 or email jockhalliday @shaw.ca

In looking for a spring fundraiser, last year’s inaugural Antiques Re-Visited was the perfect event. The fundraisers allow the Brentwood Bay Rotary to fulfill Rotary’s “Service Above Self” motto, providing funds to support the group’s local and international projects. Current initiatives include the African Community Project to assist in the economic and social development of the people in a small community just outside the Zambian city of Lusaka. Last year, the Brentwood Bay Rotarians completed a clean water and educational project in Honduras, and a book drive produced 1,500 ! new and gently used books for countries in need,

to start libraries for children. The local group has supported Rotary International’s Immunization Days world-wide to eradicate polio and Project Unity, a coalition of Greater Victoria Rotary Clubs providing micro loans, supplies and Kids Kits for AIDS orphans. Locally, the group awards the annual Darcy Lazarz Scholarship at Stelly’s Secondary School and supports the Saanich Peninsula Hospital, Terry Fox Run, Brentwood Bay Days, and the SenseABILITY Project, which provides a kit for parents of sight-impaired children that, allows them to start teaching literacy skills to the children before they start school.

Henley & Walden LLP has been serving the legal needs of the Saanich Peninsula for

over 30 years. The lawyers of Henley & Walden LLP provide wise counsel and guidance across a range of legal services. We provide professional services in Personal and Business Law including: Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning, Powers of Attorney, Representation Agreements, Executorships, Estate Administration and Litigation as well as Corporate and Family Law.

Do you have hidden treasure just waiting to be discovered? The Brentwood Bay Rotary Club may well be able to help you uncover it! The Peninsula’s answer to the popular “Antiques Roadshow” is coming to the Central Saanich Seniors’ Centre on Sunday, April 7, when the centre hosts the Rotary Club’s Antiques ReVisited. Twelve of Victoria’s antiques experts will be on hand, donating their time for the fundraiser, says past president Jock Halliday, one of the event’s organizers. The club had been looking for a spring fundraiser, and upon hearing the local Seniors’ Centre needed help with its re-furbishing plans, Antiques Revisited was born. The registered not-for-profit Central Saanich Senior Citizen’s Association has run the local Seniors’ Centre next to the library in Brentwood Bay for more than 30 years. With a mandate to provide a wide range of innovative, enjoyable and costeffective programs and services to the 50-plus population of the Saanich Peninsula, the centre strives to promote active living, healthy aging, lifelong learning and community involvement. When the centre needed refurbishment, local Rotarians stepped in to help. With help from a former appraiser and former Rotarian, Mike Wagnall, and the experts who donated their time and expertise to make the event successful, last year’s Antiques Re-Visited raised more than $3,000; organizers are hoping to top that amount this year. “We encourage the community to come to support us by bringing their collectables and antiques – who knows, you may have a treasure!” Antiques Re-visited ticket holders can bring up to three items, including vintage jewellery, silver, dolls and samplers, toys, native arts and

The

crafts, porcelain, pottery and china, clocks and watches, stamps and coins, militaria, paintings, prints and books. Ticket holders will be served on a firstcome, first-served basis, and on the availability of the appraiser of their particular items. The doors will open at 10 a.m. and the fun will continue through the day to 4 p.m. Seniors’ Centre volunteers will be on hand helping and providing light refreshments. Tickets are $25 and are available from the Seniors’ Centre in Brentwood Bay (from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday), Discount Printing, 102-2423 Beacon Ave. in Sidney, from any Brentwood Bay Rotarian, and at the door. Ample parking will be available at the site, with overflow parking at the Brentwood Bay Elementary School. Please note that buying or selling of appraised items at the event is not permitted. For more information, contact 250-544-1120, 250-656-5325 or 250-652-4611.

Do you have hidden treasure just waiting to be discovered? The Brentwood Bay Rotary Club may well be able to help you uncover it! The Peninsula’s answer to the popular “Antiques Roadshow” is coming to the Central Saanich Seniors’ Centre on Sunday, April 7, when the centre hosts the Rotary Club’s Antiques ReVisited. Twelve of Victoria’s antiques experts will be on hand, donating their time for the fundraiser, says past president Jock Halliday, one of the event’s organizers. The club had been looking for a spring fundraiser, and upon hearing the local Seniors’ Centre needed help with its re-furbishing plans, Antiques Revisited was born. The registered not-for-profit Central Saanich Senior Citizen’s Association has run the local Seniors’ Centre next to the library in Brentwood Bay for more than 30 years. With a mandate to provide a wide range of innovative, enjoyable and costeffective programs and services to the 50-plus population of the Saanich Peninsula, the centre strives to promote active living, healthy aging, lifelong learning and community involvement. When the centre needed refurbishment, local Rotarians stepped in to help. With help from a former appraiser and former Rotarian, Mike Wagnall, and the experts who donated their time and expertise to make the event successful, last year’s Antiques Re-Visited raised more than $3,000; organizers are hoping to top that amount this year. “We encourage the community to come to support us by bringing their collectables and antiques – who knows, you may have a treasure!” Antiques Re-visited ticket holders can bring up to three items, including vintage jewellery, silver, dolls and samplers, toys, native arts and

The

crafts, porcelain, pottery and china, clocks and watches, stamps and coins, militaria, paintings, prints and books. Ticket holders will be served on a firstcome, first-served basis, and on the availability of the appraiser of their particular items. The doors will open at 10 a.m. and the fun will continue through the day to 4 p.m. Seniors’ Centre volunteers will be on hand helping and providing light refreshments. Tickets are $25 and are available from the Seniors’ Centre in Brentwood Bay (from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday), Discount Printing, 102-2423 Beacon Ave. in Sidney, from any Brentwood Bay Rotarian, and at the door. Ample parking will be available at the site, with overflow parking at the Brentwood Bay Elementary School. Please note that buying or selling of appraised items at the event is not permitted. For more information, contact 250-544-1120, 250-656-5325 or 250-652-4611.

The Brentwood Bay Rotary Club  Antiques Re-Visited

Brentwood Bay:

a jewel of the Peninsula Tucked along the Saanich Inlet, north of Victoria on the Saanich Peninsula, sits the quaint community of Brentwood Bay. Home to a variety of residential neighbourhoods surrounding the town centre, the region also boasts such attractions such as the world-famous Butchart Gardens and the stunning Victoria Butterfly Gardens. At the village, residents and guests alike will find accommodation, dining choices ranging from fine dining to quirky waterfront cafés, and all necessities. For outdoor enthusiasts, the kayaking, biking, hiking and walking opportunities are many in the Brentwood Bay region, and an artificial reef is taking shape offshore, attracting divers who appreciate the clear waters and abundant sea life. Visit Coles Bay Regional Park, a quiet refuge in the Saanich Inlet, and Gowlland Tod Provincial Park, south of Brentwood Bay by Tod Inlet, where old mining and logging roads now provide more than 40 kilometres of hiking trails. Nearby, John Dean Provincial Park on Mount Newton borders both North Saanich and Central

Saanich, just a few miles north of Brentwood Bay and offers stunning views, while Butterfield Park on Mount Newton Cross Road at Thomson Place offers pleasant strolls through 5.3 hectares of what was once the South Hill poultry farm. Also located here is the Brentwood Bay-Mill Bay ferry, providing scenic – and convenient – 25-minute passage across the Saanich Inlet for those travelling to or from the Swartz Bay terminal and destinations north of Victoria. The ferry is an ideal option for those who prefer to bypass the drive through Victoria and Westshore and over the Malahat. Event highlights in the neighbourhood include Central Saanich Days, held at Centennial Park on August’s BC Day weekend, Brentwood Bay Days, held the second week in June, and the Saanich Fall Fair each Labour Day weekend at the Saanich Fairgrounds.

The first ever stretch Lamborghini limo is here, and it’s being brought to you by a leading London, England, luxury car rental company. The concept for this stretch hypercar innovation has been kept under wraps for months, but now the public can finally get a glimpse of this brand new, pioneering advancement in the world of luxury cars. The Lamborghini limo, also known as the ‘Lambo’ is a stretch version of Lamborghini’s Aventador model. The breath-taking conceptual limo exaggerates all the sleekness and sophistication of the Aventador into a luxuriously stylish stretch limousine. The Aventador, named after a raging bull, brings to life the spirit of creative and futuristic car design. Through innovative automobile design, one of the world’s most sought-after 690 hp hypercars is transformed into a state-of-the-art luxury stretch

limousine. It goes without saying that the first stretch Lambo blueprint, in its fiery orange colour scheme, is poised to create massive amounts of hype in the world of luxury motoring. Although this stunning design remains purely conceptual at the moment, it could easily materialize into a real, tangible car with the support and investment of a willing and passionate sponsor. The Lambo will host four scissor doors and incorporate relaxing lounge seating ideal for laid-back travel. The Lamborghini Aventador limo will boast every extravagance from plush leather interiors emblazoned with the Cars For Stars logo, heated seating, rear plasma screens, surround sound, iPod docks, champagne bars and more. The stretch Lambo will transform the limousine experience into an explosion of luxury, style and glamour, making the Lamborghini Aventador limousine unlike any other existing limo concept.
