Pack of protesters howl over loss of SPCA PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

There was no mistaking it, the front yard of city hall smelled like dog poop. The real “stink” though was raised by hundreds of animal supporters – many with their pet dogs – who gave up their lunch hours Wednesday to let city council know they want their muchloved SPCA back. “I have been a veterinarian for 23 years, and have lived in many communities, and I can say without any hesitation that our Campbell River SPCA has been the best run and most efficient organization that I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with,” said Dr. Helen Kwong of the Merecroft Veterinary Clinic. Last Saturday, about 50 people showed up at the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) branch for an emotional farewell as staff moved out of the small shelter after nearly 30 decades of service. Coastal Animal Control Services, a private contractor, took over pound and animal control duties on Monday.

BEST TRUCK DEALS OF THE YEAR!! April 6 –27

PAUL RUDAN/THE MIRROR

Hundreds of pet owners and animal lovers packed the front lawn of Campbell River’s city hall on Wednesday to protest a council decision that led to the SPCA leaving the city last weekend.

On Wednesday though, in a much bigger rally of support for the SPCA, approximately 400 people – along with many pet rescue dogs – showed up on the front hall of city hall, demanding accountability. “We want council! We want council!” they chanted over and over. But not a single councillor showed up to speak and, when last

seen, Mayor Walter Jakeway was at 2nd Avenue and Cedar Street, hovering over the free goodies provided by the health authority to announce construction of the new hospital. “How can Coastal Animal Control do the job at half the price? Simple answer is, they can’t,” said Dr. Kwong. “The B.C. SPCA is so much more than animal control… in the words of the great Gandhi,

‘the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated’.” Another woman, one of many speakers who voiced their continued support for the SPCA, summed up the feelings of many who attended the rally, “I’m so heart-broken. I just want them back.” MORE ON PAGES A3/A4

Things were looking up for local shelter before SPCA pulled the plug which according to Good was “received quite warmly.” The meeting was positive enough that Good had lined up a team to come and clear the property and she had spoken to a few companies about putting in a chain link fence to enclose the sides that weren’t already fenced off. “I was willing to fundraise to get the job done if the city would not pay for it,” Good said. The staff, who put up with a cramped office lacking proper heating in the winter, were also making changes within, according to

KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Big changes were in the works at the Campbell River SPCA before the animal welfare organization says it was forced to cease its local operations. When Nicky Good, who volunteered for the SPCA for three years, first moved to Campbell River she couldn’t believe the conditions SPCA staff were working in and wanted to help. “I so admired the people. They were so upbeat. They worked with what they had and made the best of it,” Good said. “It was so clean and smelled great and someone was always cleaning and sterilizing. I thought ‘this is unbelievable’ for the quarters they had.” But Good realized more could be done. She came up with an idea to clear the weedfilled property behind the SPCA, which borders the back lot of the city’s Dogwood Operations Centre and use it as a place for the dogs to run.

Good. “They were training (the animals) to make them more adoptable,” Good said. “There was so much love for the animals up there.” With the SPCA packing up and vacating the city last weekend, Campbell River residents are concerned about animal welfare in the city. The new contractor, Coastal Animal Control, will not deal with animal cruelty complaints nor will it operate a shelter for people to surrender their animals or adopt a pet. Instead, people will have to use the Comox Valley SPCA.

Ian Roberts got choked up as spoke about his love for his SPCA rescue dog – Sage with the pink nails – as he’s joined by veterinarian Dr. Helen Kwong at Wednesday’s rally to support the SPCA. Pictured below right, rally participants had plenty of placards and their pets too.

“Dogs that are kennel-stressed need a place to run,” Good said. “Right now it’s a

City defends awarding of animal enforcement contract KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

City council’s decision to not award the city’s animal enforcement contract to the SPCA was based on information in a city staff report that recommended council go with Coastal Animal Control to reduce costs for taxpayers. The report, written by City Clerk Peter Wipper, concluded that the bidding process between the SPCA and Coastal Animal Control “will result in improved service and reduced costs for the taxpayers of Campbell River.” But money seems to be the furthest thing from taxpayers’ minds. “There’s just some things in life – sure it’s a lot of money – but it’s the right thing to do to look after animals,”

said Nicky Good, a three-year SPCA volunteer, who is devastated to see the SPCA go. “After having the SPCA here for 30 years, it’s a huge step backward for animal welfare.” T he city said it awarded Coastal Animal Control the animal enforcement contract because its bid fit into council’s $164,000 budget and scored well. The city staff report states that the two bids were evaluated based on experience (worth 25 per cent), qualifications and training (20 per cent), references (20 per cent), and budget (35 per cent). Wipper said the submissions were evaluated by members of the city’s supply management, legislative services and bylaw enforcement departments and scored out of 100. Coastal Animal Control scored 92.5

while the BC SPCA was given a score of 33.5. Wipper said in his report that “there is no question that Coastal Animal Control Services would provide the best value to the

to operate in Campbell River, and offered the combination of continued access to the building and a $34,000 grantin-aid in support of the SPCA’s animal welfare efforts. Unfortunately,

even with an offer of $34,000 in grant funding, an amount significantly more generous than the support local SPCA branches are offered in other communities, the SPCA

chose to re-locate its operations and the animals in its care.” Craig Daniell, chief executive officer of the SPCA, said that was not enough for a branch already losing $10,000 per year, and that the bid the SPCA put in was realistic. “The proposal submitted by the BC SPCA for the contract was the lowest figure we could possibly provide without severely compromising the health and welfare of the animals,” Daniell said in a letter to SPCA supporters. “We believe a dramatically lower bid is unrealistic and could only be offered by reducing the standard of care for animals to an unacceptable level. “We have seen this happen in other communities, with very serious consequences for animals and residents.”

Site work begins for new Campbell River hospital PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

They didn’t break out the ceremonial gold shovels just yet, but Wednesday marked the first day of actual work to begin building the new Campbell River Hospital. “An actual concrete step that is happening! This is a clear step forward,� said Claire Moglove, a city councillor and chair of the Comox-Strathcona Re g i o n a l H o s p i t a l Board.

and the Vancouver Island Health Authority is also considering a shuttle service. Wednesday’s formal announcement took place on the grassy area, just below the hospital at the corner of 2nd and Cedar Street. In that area, mobile units will be brought in as temporary offices for clerical staff, and then deconstruction can begin. Ground breaking for the new 95-bed, $266-million hospital is slated to begin in April 2014 and construction will last three years. “The Klahoose (First Nation) use this facility all the time,� said Chief James Delorme of the Cortes-based band. “Great times are ahead – let health be good for all of us!�

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO CITIZENS: WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH ANIMAL CONTROL IN CAMPBELL RIVER? The new animal control and pound services will operate diīerently from the SPCA’s animal shelter. What happens to impounded animals not picked up by their owners? • Dogs will stay at the Campbell River pound for a minimum of Įve days. • Coastal Animal Control anƟcipates that 90 per cent of all dogs will only be at the pound facility for one to two days before being claimed by their owners. • AŌer Įve days, Coastal Animal Control has the opƟon of transporƟng dogs to an adopƟon facility in Duncan or Nanaimo, where they have a very successful adopƟon rate. • Coastal Animal Control has never euthanized an animal or had to turn away a stray for lack of space. • Every animal that they adopt out is spayed or neutered, vaccinated and treated for parasites. • They will not adopt out an animal that they know has caused serious injury to a human or has killed another domesƟc animal.

CITY CURRENTS

How does Coastal Animal Control care for dogs at the pound? • Fresh water, feeding, outdoor exercise and kennel cleaning every morning. • Dogs come back to dry kennels aŌer exercise. Raised bedding and blankets are provided for each dog. • Between carrying out duƟes in the community, the animal control oĸcer returns regularly to the pound building and monitors dogs, Įlling water buckets and spot cleaning as necessary. • Regular outdoor aŌernoon exercise for dogs also occurs. • All dogs are fed a quality lamb and rice dog food and given ample aƩenƟon and exercise. Any abnormality in feces, consumpƟon of water, presence of tapeworm etc. is noted to be relayed to the dog’s owner. • Find out more about Coastal Animal Control’s animal care and adopƟon rates on the Internet at: hƩp://coastalanimalservices.com or on their Facebook page. What about caring for other animals? • Coastal Animal Control will take in all pets that need shelter in the event of a Įre, accident or other emergency situaƟon – 24 hours a day. • Like the SPCA before them, Coastal Animal Control is not under contract to trap and neuter feral cats. • People wanƟng to surrender animals they can no longer care for should take them to an animal welfare organizaƟon. How will animal control enforcement be provided now? • StarƟng April 1, call 1-888-754-1397 to report animal control concerns. • Impounded animals are housed at the 490 MerecroŌ Rd. facility. • Hours the pound is open for reclaiming animals: 4 to 5 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The pound is closed to the public Sunday and statutory holidays. • People should call to make an appointment to pick up their animals if they can’t aƩend during the regular public hours.

• Expect to see increased evening and weekend patrols in public areas that are the focus of the majority of complaints. • Coastal Animal Control will focus on educaƟng rather than wriƟng Ɵckets. They do not have a quota to write Ɵckets, nor do they make money from wriƟng Ɵckets. Tickets are used as an absolute last resort in gaining compliance with the animal control bylaw. How do I buy a dog license? Renewal dog licenses can be purchased in person at City Hall or online at www.campbellriver.ca. New dog licenses must be purchased in person. How much does animal control cost? In 2012, the SPCA was paid $167,000 to administer the animal control contract and house impounded animals. In addiƟon, the SPCA received free use of the City-owned shelter building. The SPCA also received City support valued at almost $30,000 that included a van and other operaƟons assistance. For 2013, the SPCA quoted a cost of more than $246,000 for these services. In 2013, Coastal Animal Services will provide both animal control and pound services out of the building at 490 MerecroŌ Rd. for $130,000. Did the City oīer to support the SPCA’s animal welfare eīorts? When the SPCA turned down a $58,000 contract oīer for pound services, the City encouraged the SPCA to conƟnue operaƟng their animal welfare services from the same locaƟon. The SPCA was asked to reserve Įve dog runs for impounded animals and share onsite oĸce space with Coastal Animal Control. In recogniƟon of community support for SPCA services, Council also oīered a $34,000 grant-in-aid to assist with their animal welfare services. Unfortunately, the SPCA noƟĮed the City March 27 that they would re-locate the animals in their care and vacate the facility at the end of March. How do other communiƟes look aŌer animal control and animal welfare? Council’s decision to have a new contractor for animal control and pound services follows the model established in most other communiƟes, where animal control services are separate from the local SPCA branch. A recent survey of 11 BC municipaliƟes found that all other local governments use “inhouse” or private contractors. Coastal Animal Control currently provides this service to the City of Nanaimo, Nanaimo Regional District, Municipality of North Cowichan, Town of Ladysmith, City of Duncan, Town of Lake Cowichan, Alberni Clayquot Regional District and the Snuneymuxw and Stz’uminus First NaƟons. In some communiƟes the SPCA branch runs animal welfare services independently from local government; in others, the SPCA is provided with land or the use of municipal buildings. In Campbell River, the City provided and oīered to conƟnue to provide the SPCA with property, building and maintenance free of charge. The City also oīered the SPCA a grant worth $34,000 to conƟnue its animal welfare work. The SPCA advised the City it would leave Campbell River.

Sister city exchange Risky business for SRD directors program threatened KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The city’s 30-year exchang e pro g ram with its Japanese sister city, Ishikari, is being threatened by a lack of funding. The Campbell River Twinning Society is struggling to find money to stay afloat after its Community Gaming Grant funding was pulled last year. The gaming grant criteria was changed in 2011, and the Twinning Society was subsequently notified that it was no longer eligible for funding under the new terms and conditions. Andy Adams, Twinning Society president and city councillor, said that meant the society’s usual $6,000 grant was reduced to $3,333 in 2011 and $0 in 2012. The society does receive some funding from the city, but it’s not enough. “As our funding from the City of Campbell River’s Community Partnership Commission is contingent on 50 per cent matching funds – which we were using the provincial

gaming funds as the matching funds – if unsuccessful in securing future Community Gaming Funding support we will be in serious jeopardy of maintaining our existence,” Adams said. “This would be truly tragic to lose such a rich and valuable program that has created multi-generational family, political and cultural ties that are priceless.” The Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch denied the Twinning Society a grant because in its view the society did not meet the requirement of providing a clear benefit to the community. The branch, in denying the grant request, wrote that the society’s “student exchange programs appear to provide more of a benefit to the participants travelling to Japan and/or living there for a year, than the community at large.” But Adams said the Twinning Society “strongly believes” that it does provide a broad community benefit and will be applying again for a gaming grant in

2013. “There is significant evidence of the community benefit of the Twinning Society in Campbell River such as participation in the annual Winter Traditions Around the World at the museum, the annual Canada Day parade, the annual Japanese Cultural Fair held in Spirit Square, significant art and cultural legacies in the community such as the tenth anniversary gift of the Torri Gate in Sequoia Park (across from the museum) (and) the 25th anniversary gift of twenty-five cherry blossom trees that line City Hall Park,” Adams said. Since the sister city proclamation was signed, 850 students h ave v i s i t e d b a ck and forth. Students have participated in the year-long Senior Exchange Program for high school students or the Young Ambassador Program – a 10-day exchange for students in both middle school and elementary school.

Strathcona Regional District directors revealed during financial discussions last week that they risk their lives trying to do their jobs. The topic came up while directors at last Thursday’s board meeting discussed whether the regional district should have a bylaw dictating when it’s appropriate to pay for a director’s overnight accommodations while travelling out of town. Noba Anderson, Cortes Island director, put forward a motion that overnight accommodation only being considered before and after a meeting when it’s not possible, or highly unlikely, for a director to be able to get to the meeting or back home on time. Brenda Leigh, director for Area D (Oyster Bay-Buttle Lake), said she recently chose to drive home in unsafe conditions and said while she probably shouldn’t have, that decision should be left up to the director’s discretion. “There’s always going to be anomalies, I think it should be the call of the director if you choose to drive home

like I did the other night from Strathcona Park Lodge in a snowstorm and risked my life,” Leigh said. “It was horrible.” Jim Abram, director for Quadra and Discovery Islands, agreed. “Discretion of the director is fine,” Abram said. “I don’t think the public in general or even the rest of the councils on this board know how many times we risk our lives to be somewhere. I know every time I jump on that beach craft I may not come home. It’s part of the job.” Director Larry Samson, councillor for Campbell River, said he felt there should be some guidance in

the form of a bylaw or policy. “I think there should be some policy guideline,” Samson said. “I think we should have some sort of policy and not just leave it wide open to the director’s choice.” The board decided in the end to leave overnight expenses up to the director’s discretion for one year after which time regional district staff will evaluate that practice and report back to the board. The board also looked at pay while travelling to out of town appointments. The practise has varied between directors and while the current bylaw restricts claims to in-transit time

only, directors have in the past made claims for time spent waiting for ferries or staying over night while en route. Board chair Ted Lewis (Zeballos) said he was concerned that if the bylaw became too specific, staf f would be burdened with having to doublecheck each director’s expense claims. “My only issue with this whole thing is staff spending an overabundance of time verifying and calculating the trip, it speaks to the honour system of the board,” Lewis said. In the end, the board chose to have only the time spent in actual transit be eligible for compensation.

Our View

Campbell Riverites are animal lovers Well, you can say one thing about Campbell Riverites, they sure love animals. Of course, all you have to do is go for a walk anywhere in town or even We say: Losing attend any event and you will see the SPCA brought people with their dogs. Well, people brought their dogs more people out to the protest on the city hall front than tax increases lawn Wednesday. They were upset with a city council decision to give an animal control service contract to a private company, Coastal Animal Control Services Ltd.

Approximately 400 people and around 100 dogs stood on city hall’s lawn and chanted for city councillors to come out and face them. Last year’s tax increase protesters could only shake their head, jealously wishing they could have got that strong a turnout for their rallies. But it appears Campbell Riverites have a stronger bond with their animals than they have with their tax dollars. That is supported by the fact that the protesters would prefer to spend a little more to keep a non-profit organization in charge of their animal welfare services than a down-Island private

company. The animal bylaw enforcement contract was awarded to the lowest bidder this year and the B.C. SPCA felt it could not continue to run the animal shelter without the enforcement component of their contract with the city and decided to shut down their Campbell River operation. It may have been a hasty move on the SPCA’s part, they could have stayed and maintained their pound by mobilizing the goodwill they’ve built up over the years. Goodwill that was on display at city hall on Wednesday.

Letters

Safety, compassion a priority Coastal Animal Services is very pleased to be working for the City of Campbell River and its citizens in the pursuit of responsible pet ownership and public safety. Our priority to public safety and education is mirrored by our compassionate treatment of animals. We have been acting as an animal control and animal shelter for nearly 40 years on Vancouver Island. We have two large animal shelter branches so no dog is ever turned away due to lack of space and this ensures that a successful adoption takes place. We do not euthanize adoptable dogs and during the past four decades in this business have forged solid and lasting relationships with several SPCA branches and animal rescue groups up and down Vancouver Island. We look forward to establishing similar relationships with those dedicated to animal welfare here in Campbell River. Unfortunately, there have been some false and misleading statements concerning our company that I would like to address. Every local government establishes bylaws for the legal detainment of stray dogs. Continued on A9

Now is the time to invest in Kitimat refinery

Jim Shepard Guest Column

I first heard of this concept from David Black (owner of newspaper publishing company Black Press and this newspaper) a number of years ago. At the time I was skeptical of its chances. My initially-negative attitude was based mainly on my experience of 10 years service on the board of directors of Imperial Oil. Since I was accustomed to the discussion of petroleum economics centered in Calgary, I saw no need for a refinery in Kitimat. That attitude was based on the fact that there had not been a new refinery built in North America in many years. And any needed increase in petroleum production was achieved by expansion of existing refineries through-

out North America. But after my service with Imperial Oil, I went on to serve four years at Canfor which led to my nine visits to China in search of lumber markets. My exposure to the phenomenal expansion of China’s economy opened my eyes to the true merit of the Kitimat refinery concept. It made me realize that it would not be just another refinery relying on the North America market but rather a refinery that would supply the vast appetite of China for petroleum products. The challenge will be to draw the attention of Asian investors who would see the value to this investment. It appears that David Black, after many years of effort, is nearing an agreement that could provide the

vast capital infusion needed to make this refinery initiative a reality. The appetite for oil products for all Asia will continue to grow and the Kitimat refinery is ideally situated to take advantage. Asian countries, especially China, are very interested in securing sustainable supply of resources that will flow freely without undue trade barriers like surprises with taxes, regulations or tariffs. Canada has a good reputation as a free trade country that can be relied on as a dependable source of supply. Now is a very opportune time to attract the vast investment needed to make the Kitimat refinery go ahead. David Black, with his years of dilligence, deserves our appreciation for displaying the foresight and courage

to invest his time, money and reputation to help bring along this huge initiative. The positive merits of the Kitimat refinery are so profound that this project is really beyond any political persuasion. Any and all supporters of NDP, Liberal, Conservative or even Green should see the tremendous benefits that would come to B.C. with this project. This initiative will involve the investment of many billions of dollars. That’s for sure. It’s hard for any of us to visualize a million let alone a billion of any thing. So let’s look at the “on the ground” facts of such an undertaking for all of us in B.C. Let’s start with the big picture. Continued on A11

FOLLOW US ON...

Readers speak out about SPCA Well Done, City of Campbell River. You have managed to rock the core of our little town by taking away the shelter for our abused, neglected, injured and abandoned animals. I trust you will all sleep well knowing – or not knowing – where and how these poor creatures will get to their final resting place without a shelter and loving, caring people to take care of them. Charlotte Hayman

Ex Chair CAC CR SPCA ●●●● My wife and I are in absolute opposition to your decision to award the city animal control contract to Coastal Animal Control Services. This was obviously a poorly planned decision with no thought give to the consequences. My wife and I have several dogs and have been supporters of the SPCA for twenty years. Your council may have

saved taxpayers a few bucks in the short run but the loss of the SPCA and the valuable services they have provided strikes a blow to the heart of this community. We attended at the final hour of the SPCA on Saturday. It was extremely sad to see employees who have dedicated their working lives to the welfare of the animals having to leave. Did you think about it? Who will administer animal wel-

fare programs? Who will handle animal adoptions? What will happen to the out of control feral cat population? We have lost a vital part of our community because of your poorly planned decision. I urge yourself and council to rethink this decision. The value of the SPCA to Campbell River goes way beyond dollars and sense. Tom Hopkins Catherine Frejd ●●●●

A9

I trust the citizens of Campbell River will give the current council the boot at the next election for depriving us of the services of the SPCA who have served our community for several decades. Why do we have to put up with changes to things that are not broken? Perhaps we should “outsource” our political needs to Comox Valley. Brian Caldwell Willow Point

Each establishes a minimum time frame in which a pound must hold an animal prior to adoption. The period in Campbell River is five days. It is fairly obvious when an animal is malnourished and aban-

doned and this time frame is typical of that situation. We must still wait five days before initiating the adoption process. On the other hand, dogs that possess any for m of identification or appear well fed and socialized may be held for several weeks

while trying to locate an owner. A f t e r w e h av e exhausted all avenues of re-uniting the lost pet with its owners, then and only then, the dog will be available for adoption. All of our adoptable animals are spayed and neutered, dewormed

and treated for parasites. I wish to thank all of those who have contacted us with their questions or concerns and all of the many calls of support we have received from the community. We look forward to serving the commu-

nity with courtesy and professionalism. Please visit our facebook page to get a better understanding of the role we play in the community. Trevor Hughes Chief Executive Officer Coastal Animal Control Services of BC Ltd.

Kitimat: An attractive way to invest billions of shareholder capital Continued from A8

When it comes to the benefits of a petroleum cycle from well exploration to the gas station, the jurisdiction that hosts the refining process enjoys a huge portion of the value addition to the raw material. For the KRC Project, that would mean several thousand mostly trade union jobs for the multi-year term of the construction phase. It would also mean the creation of over 3,000 permanent jobs for the operation and supply support of the refinery when running. This refinery would be processing 175 million barrels per year which means the tax revenue that could go toward healthcare, education, vital services for the disabled and elderly would be immense. But job creation and tax revenue is not the only desirable feature of the KRC. It also would provide much lower risk to the marine environment. The shipments out of the refinery would be finished product like aviation fuel, gasoline and diesel. If these products ever spilt, there would be much less impact on the marine environment. They would also be transported in smaller ships. I know there are those on both sides of the political aisle that address this as a political issue. And I would disagree with both. This is a project that can be attractive to all political stripes. Trade unions would see a significant increase in jobs and memberships. Hospitals and schools across the province would see an improvement in government funding. Business activity, especially in the challenged northwest B.C., would be very positively impacted. And those with a concern for the threat of marine spills would see a significantly-reduced exposure for the environment. Based on the huge positive impact this initiative could have on B.C., I think the question should not be if we want it....but rather, how can we help make sure that the petroleum world sees this as an attractive way to invest billions of shareholder capital. Jim Shepard is the retired president of Finning and Canfor, two of B.C.’s largest companies, and a past director of Imperial Oil.

right there when a friend needed help. He always had a smile and a wave. In the summer he would ride his motorcycle to the Spit with his little trusted friend, wearing her doggles, sitting behind him. There was one little girl at the memorial who wasn’t there to say goodbye. She was there looking for her daddy. She was so excited because they always went to the Spit together. All the years we have known her, she never once barked. She barked that day because out of all those people she couldn’t find her daddy. Her name is Scruffy. I am crying right now as I wonder what she was thinking. Harold Berg, we all will miss you so much and I know Scruffy will miss you even more because she does not know why you are gone.

councillors and our mayor for the decision to not continue with a viable and working SPCA shelter in our city. Who do they think is going to keep up with all the animal cruelty and neglect investigations? I seriously doubt that the Comox Valley SPCA can cover the whole North Island and outer islands now. Also, who is going to ensure that stray and abandoned animals get necessary medical care? Who is going to ensure animals are spayed and neutered so that we can keep the number of unwanted pets from skyrocketing in our community? Who is going to make the commitment to not euthanize animals unless absolutely necessary? Who is going to be there to educate our young children about the importance and commitment of being a responsible pet owner and the benefits of being a charitable member of society? I for one would much rather have a fully functioning and caring SPCA shelter than a pound that is more committed to catching and punishing dogs and their owners. You can’t even call it a shelter anymore as it will not shelter and care for all sorts of animals but only house them on the way to being destroyed. – Debbie Arkwright

Trailer burns, possible arson A 55-year-old Campbell River man is facing an arson charge after a trailer in Oyster Bay burned on March 29. “A 32-foot travel trailer was fully involved and police were informed that it may have been deliberately set on fire,” said RCMP Cpl. Poppy Hallam. “No one was hurt and the damage was limited to the trailer itself.” Police were called out to to the 3700 block South Island Hwy. to investigate the blaze at 10:47 a.m. The male suspect was arrested at the scene and held in custody over the weekend. He remains in custody and his name has not been released.

Damage to vehicles On March 30, Bill Howich Chrysler called police to report two vehicles that were damaged.

Campbell River Living Meg keeps up the brave fight on two fronts KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Meg LeBlanc is a fighter. Parkinson’s disease has left her with tremors, shaky hands and difficulty walking but she still has a big smile on her face and a sunny disposition. Instead of feeling sorry for herself she spends her time helping others. Every Wednesday morning, as she has for the last three years, LeBlanc volunteers her time manning the local Canadian Cancer Society office. “I really like it,” she says. “I like being able to meet the people who come in here and being able to help them.” LeBlanc says the office is a resource centre where she can hand out pamphlets to people or help those who have lost their hair to chemotherapy pick out a wig or a scarf. The office is ran mostly by volunteers like LeBlanc who are vital to the society’s success. The biggest night for the volunteers is the Canadian Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life – a chance to celebrate and remember those with cancer, those who have died from the disease and those who have overcome cancer. During the event, at least one member from each team must be on the track throughout the 12-hour time frame.

KRISTEN DOUGLAS/THE MIRROR

Meg LeBlanc finds inspiration through her volunteer work at the Campbell River Canadian Cancer Society officer handing out pamphlets or helping people who have lost their hair to chemotherapy pick out a wig or scarf.

This year’s event takes place June 1-2 at Phoenix school but volunteers are already needed. The Cancer Society is looking for community leaders with communication, delegation, networking or project management skills who can assist on the Leadership Committee. Part of the committee’s role is to brainstorm ideas to make this year’s event a success. LeBlanc says Relay for Life is important because it helps raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society to put towards finding a

cure for cancer. It also puts a positive spin on the devastating disease. “Things like Relay for Life encourage you to fight if you have (cancer),” LeBlanc says. “And so many people do fight it

and can get through it. With cancer they now have a good idea of what causes it and treatments are improving all the time. It’s not easy but it’s getting better. I admire the people who fight through it.”

LeBlanc is pretty admirable herself. She’s suffered with Parkinson’s for 25 years. She was diagnosed when she was just 41-years-old while living in Ontario. Ironically, she had been teaching a fitness class the day she found out she had the disease. LeBlanc says unlike cancer, there is no way to overcome Parkinson’s. It’s a long-term, neurological disease caused by a loss of dopamine in the brain. Symptoms include tremors, stiff muscles, difficulty

with balance and walking, and difficulty with fine movements. LeBlanc was working as a medical technologist in Toronto before Parkinson’s forced her to retire. LeBlanc and her husband moved to Campbell River and shortly after she fell and broke her pelvis. LeBlanc wasn’t able to leave her house for nearly a year but when she was finally able to get out on her own she started to seek out volunteer opportunities. The Canadian Cancer Soci-

ety stuck out because of its flexible hours and the connection her family has with cancer. “I have a brother-inlaw with prostate cancer and a sister-in-law with kidney cancer and possibly lung cancer, and a friend with breast cancer who’s had a double mastectomy,” says LeBlanc, who has been fortunate herself to have never had cancer. Still, everyday is a struggle for LeBlanc who admits Parkinson’s is “a frustrating disease.” But always one to help, LeBlanc participated in several Parkinson’s study groups when she still lived in Ontario. As a memento she has a photo of her brain that, as a student of medicine, she finds “incredibly interesting” to analyze. Despite her struggles, LeBlanc is ready for whatever the Canadian Cancer Society throws her way, particularly when it comes to Relay for Life. “On the day, my husband and I put on our volunteer shirts and just wait until someone in desperation yells,” she says with a smile. Anyone who would like to volunteer at Relay for Life or sign up for the Relay for Life leadership committee can call the Campbell River Canadian Cancer Society office at (250) 8261955 or e-mail Anna Glenny at aglenny@ bc.cancer.ca

It’s time for another Freeman and Hill folk music concert and you’re invited to come and listen to these quiet, thoughtful songs that are laden with stories and descriptions. The music you’ll hear is chosen from the lesser-known stars of the folk world, but with a few old favourites in the mix. The afternoon is geared to a listening audience hoping to get the most out of a concert experience. Sussana Hill and David Freeman have been working hard to shape and arrange their set lists, and have been practicing steadily for months now. Why? To bring you a quality folk music performance. It’s to be hoped you’ll walk away humming or whistling one of the songs that caught your ear. This time the event is at The Dolphins Resort 4125 Discovery Drive in Campbell River on Sunday at 2 p.m. Seating in The Anglers Dining Room is somewhat limited, so reservations are recommended. Just call the resort at 250-287-3066.

Folk duo Sussana Hill and David Freeman perform Sunday at Dolphins Resort.

Free admission, no tickets, no cover charge. The talented chef at The Dolphins Resort will have an afternoon appetizer menu for everyone.

| CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR | FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 2013

Kids can ‘Draw With A Splash’ at the Art Gallery Kids who want to dip their toes into the world of art will love the upcoming ‘Draw With A Splash’ class at the Campbell River Art Gallery. The class, for children

aged seven to 12, takes place over two sessions, Tuesdays, April 16 and April 23 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Led by artist and instructor Perry Johnston, participants will start off with simple line drawings, which they’ll later transform into paintings with

brushes and water. The experience will allow kids to learn about the use of perspective, values, colour and the basics of design – the building blocks for making great art. Johnston has been drawing and painting most of her life and her watercolours have

been exhibited in numerous shows in the Campbell River area. Her current exhibition, at the DIG Gallery on Quadra Island, has been held over until the end of April. Having received professional art instruction from some great instructors, she has recently started

teaching art workshops and hopes to share some of this experience with others. The cost for ‘Draw With A Splash’ with Perry Johnston is $27 for members of the Campbell River Art Gallery and $37 for nonmembers. All supplies are included. Winter/ Spring Children’s

Classes are sponsored by the Friends of CR Art Gallery. Stop by the Campbell River Art Gallery Tuesday to Saturday from 12-5 p.m., call 250-287-2261, e-mail programs@crartgallery. ca or check out www. crartgallery.ca to find out more.

:PVS$PNNVOJUZ  :PVS$MBTTJmFET 

Jim passed peacefully away in his sleep on March 30, 2013. Jim was born in WaWa, Ontario and came to B.C. when he was in his early teens. He spent many years as a professional logger, falling trees in remote locations throughout B.C. His knowledge of ďŹ rst-aid and his quick thinking saved both a niece and a sister from choking when they were each just toddlers. In later years, Jim resided in Campbell River, spending good times with friends and family around town. Jim also amassed an extensive video collection, especially of science ďŹ ction. Chronic illnesses tired him at the end, but he still remained easygoing and cheerful. Predeceased by his mother Thelma, father Bill, and beloved sisters Bobbie and Kim. Survived by his brothers Kelly and Casey, sister Candace, and many nephews and nieces. Jim will be greatly missed by his family and friends, who appreciated his good sense of humour. No service; just love the one you’re with. Go with God, Jim. “And He saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.â€? Matthew 8:26

The friendship of Sara Noelle Osha and Robert Alan Dalton has evolved into deep commitment and their families happily announce their forthcoming summer wedding. The newlyweds will begin their married lives in Edmonton, AB, where they currently reside.

Vancouver Island housing prices stabilize Multiple Listing Service (MLS) sales summary data for March released by the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) shows housing sales activity across Vancouver Island was down six per cent compared to last year, while average sale prices remained virtually unchanged. The average price of a single family home sold within the VIREB region in March was $ 3 1 9 , 9 1 2 wh i ch i s nearly identical to the March 2012 average price of $319,661. The number of housing units reported sold last month were down compared to a year ago. In March 2012 there were 298 single family homes sold, in comparison 281 unit sales were recorded in March 2013. “We’ve experienced increased levels of m o n t h - o ve r- m o n t h activity through the first quarter of 2013 which should translate into increased unit sales as we move into the Spring,” said VIREB President Gary Gray “With stable pric-

ing, reasonably strong inventory levels and historically low mortgage rates, buyers are realizing that this is a good time to buy a home.” As of the end of March 2013 there were 2,532 single family homes available on the Multiple Listing Service within VIREB’s coverage area, down

2X7

approximately four per cent from the 2,702 homes in the system at the end of March 2012. Comparing March 2013 to March 2012, the average sale prices across VIREB’s six zones saw: Campbell River increase eight per cent to $289,471, the Comox Valley was down three per cent to $321,633, Nanaimo’s

average sales price was up one per cent to $352,466 from the M a rch 2 0 1 2 ave rage price of $349,806, Parksville/Qualicum prices edged up two per cent to $359,448, Por t Alber ni/West Coast was unchanged at $207,012 while the Cowichan Valley was down two per cent to $324,537.

In terms of unit sales year to year, there continued to be a wide d i s p a r i t y b e t we e n the different zones last month. The Port Alberni/West Coast region recorded a 20 per cent increase in unit sales while Campbell River unit sales were off 29 per cent compared to March 2012.

Expect the Unexpected from Police Vehicles 2X14 I used to smile when I saw closely spaced traffic, a large gap, a police vehicle, another large gap and finally more closely spaced traffic. Everyone is afraid of the cop I thought. Having spent 25 years driving a marked police vehicle I recognize both that I rarely see this anymore and that it was a TYEE wise thing to do. PoliceCHEV vehicles often make unexpected starts, stops and turns. This comes to mind as I was required as a court witness last week for a collision between a police vehicle and the civilian vehicle following it. The officer wanted to stop an oncoming vehicle so he turned on his emergency equipment, moved right, slowed and began a u-turn to pursue it. The vehicle following the police vehicle carried on as usual and tried to pass by on the left. I say tried because when the police vehicle turned left a sideswipe collision resulted. The officer driving either failed to account for the traffic behind him or simply assumed that the vehicle following him would see the emergency lights and stay back. Either way, he was not operating in a safe manner and was charged for it. Honestly, I never thought that I would be a witness to something like this, rather I worried that I would cause a collision like this as traffic behind tended to try and get by rather than slow or stop. That brings us full circle to the first paragraph. If you are in traffic around a police vehicle, a defensive driver will leave plenty of room for the unexpected. The two second rule is probably two seconds too short in an instance like this. Like the rest of us, officers may make mistakes and leaving a large margin of safety to slow or stop is simply good driving practice.

Holiday shoot

Last Sunday was a beauty day and the Campbell River Gun Club was a fun place to be as the club held an Easter Prize Shoot. Skeet events were held for novice, junior and first-time shooters...and there was no shortage of veteran crack shots either. The day wrapped up with an Annie Okaley grand finale. In the top photo, Dale Huffman fires off a shot. Pictured right is seven-year-old Bryce Amussen who was pretty happy to have ear protection.
