Police catch teen suspect in assault

I

WOMAN BADLY beaten during attack last week. By CHriS BuSH ThE NEwS BULLETIN

A 16-year-old suspect appeared in Nanaimo provincial court Monday for beating and sexually assaulting a 42-year-old woman. The attack happened shortly before midnight Wednesday in a parking garage behind a building at Terminal Park mall. “We got a call from a pedestrian who heard loud noises coming from the rear of a parking lot in the 1300 block of Estevan Road,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. Police arrived to find a woman who appeared to have been sexually assaulted. “She provided a description of her attacker and a few minutes later the guys found him walking through the parking lot of Terminal Park mall,” O’Brien said. “They took him into custody without incident.” The victim received numerous cuts, scrapes and bruises and had been choked during the attack. O’Brien also confirmed the woman had been sex-

ually assaulted. She was treated at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and later released and is being supported by victim services. The suspect was charged over the weekend with sexual assault causing bodily harm, forcible confinement and choking in the commission of an offence, but his name will not be released because he is still considered a minor. He was held in custody after charges were sworn against him. Monday’s court appearance was to determine if he would remain in custody. “They will make a determination on his continued detainment or not,” O’Brien said. O’Brien said both the victim and assailant live within the Terminal Park area, but likely did not know each other. “It’s a stranger attack,” O’Brien said. “That’s what we’re going on. There’s no prior relationship established at all between the two.” Anyone with information about this incident is asked to please call Nanaimo RCMP at 250754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrime stoppers.com. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

agencies that regulate shoreline and floodplain development in British Columbia’s coastal areas. Because of the unique cross-Canada partnership that was formed to direct the project, the primer will also be relevant in Quebec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland and Labrador. “The primer will help local governments in coastal areas build strategies to prepare for sea level rise that will occur over the coming decades,” said Environment Minister Terry Lake. “We want to make sure the investments we make today will last well into the future – so planning needs to begin now.” This publication complements previous reports on sea level rise released by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, including “Costs of Adaptation: Sea Dikes and Alternative Strategies” (December 2012) and “Climate Change Adaptation

Guidelines for Sea Dikes and Coastal Flood Hazard Land Use” (May 2011). This series of studies and reports represents the best available information at this time for preparing for the impacts of sea level rise in B.C. In addition to an investment of $15,000 by the B.C. government, the primer was prepared with $50,000 in funding from Natural Resources Canada’s Regional Adaptation Collaborative Program, as well as a contribution of $7,500 from the Atlantic Climate Adaptation Solutions Association (consisting of the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador) and $7,500 from Simon Fraser University’s Adaptation to Climate Change Team. The primer was developed with input from a range of stakeholders from all levels of government from the Atlantic provinces and British Columbia. For more information, or to view the primer, please visit the Climate Action Secretariat’s sea level rise website at www.env. gov.bc.ca/cas/adaptation/sea_level.

Vehicle fire shuts down highway

Police arrest suspect in break and enter string A 46-year-old Nanaimo man believed to be responsible for several break-ins across the city as well as an attack on a commissionaire at the Nanaimo Boat Basin has been arrested and charged by Nanaimo RCMP. Gary Ronald Barnier was arrested at a downtown residence early Thursday morning and has been charged with four counts of break-andenter, one count of assault with a weapon and escape of lawful custody. During a break-in at the Wharfinger’s office at the boat basin, police say Barnier allegedly struck a commissionaire several times with a hammer. Several hours later during a traffic stop he abandoned his vehicle and ran from an officer attempting to arrest him. Barnier’s vehicle was seized and a hammer like the one used in the attack, along with several laptops and cash boxes, were seized. Barnier has also been charged with breaking into the Chase River Veterinary hospital, the Brooks Landing Dental Clinic, and Fuel Supplements at Rock City Plaza. “This investigation is far from over as Barnier is believed responsible for many more break-ins,” said Const. Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP. Barnier was remanded into custody April 4 after a hearing and made an appearance in court Friday.

TRAFFIC STARTS moving after 20-minute delay near Nanoose flats. By ChriS BuSh The News BulleTiN

Stick handling

John Hofman sets up a popsicle-stick bridge for testing Sunday afternoon at Country Club Centre. Hofman is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C., which puts on the bridge-building competition every year.

Female student assaulted at university A 19-year-old female student managed to fight off a man and call security after she was grabbed in a parking lot at Vancouver Island University. The incident happened Thursday at about 6:45 p.m. while she was walking toward Building 180 near Fourth Street and was approached by a man asking for help for a friend needing medical attention. He then grabbed her wrist and tried to spin her around,

but the student elbowed him in the face, ran off and called security. Patrols of the area failed to turn up the suspect. Nanaimo RCMP describe the suspect as Caucasian, about 6 feet tall with a thin build. He was wearing light blue jeans, a dark blue hoodie over a black sweater and silver aviator sunglasses. The student was shaken, but not injured in the incident.

Police said the incident is not related to one Feb. 21 when a woman was grabbed while walking along a trail by the Rotary Bowl running track. The person responsible for that incident is in police custody awaiting trial. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477 or online at www. nanaimocrimestoppers.com.

A fire in a pickup truck backed up north- and southbound highway traffic as firefighters battled the blaze Sunday. Doug Penny, Nanoose Volunteer Fire Department chief, said firefighters were called out at about 2 p.m. and found a Chevy pickup truck pulled over near the rest area at the Nanoose flats with its engine and cab fully engulfed in flames when they arrived. Crews on the scene were not able to pinpoint what caused the fire. “Cause? Your guess is as good as mine,” Penny said. “It was certainly in the engine compartment, but whether it was a fuel leak or oil on something – you never know. All it takes is the right conditions at the right time.” The driver and passenger from the truck were not injured and no other vehicles were involved. Travel was halted in both directions for more than one kilometre for at least 20 minutes as the fire was brought under control. “Traffic was already stopped when we arrived,” Penny said. “I think it was an off-duty Dashwood firefighter who had stopped traffic.” photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Woman rescued after jumping from Tsawwassen ferry A woman is in hospital after she went overboard from the B.C. Ferries vessel, Spirit of Vancouver, Friday around 8:30 a.m. B.C. Ferries confirmed the woman was not pushed and did not fall into the water, but jumped of her own accord about 1.5 kilometres from the Tsawwassen ferry terminal.

Passengers alerted crew to a woman in the water. According to B.C. Ferries spokeswoman Deborah Marshall, the ship’s captain stopped the ship, and crews on the ferry launched a rescue boat into the water to retrieve the woman. Ferry crews brought the woman back on to

the ferry where she was treated by paramedics, and transferred to air ambulance and taken to hospital in Vancouver. Marshall praised the quick action of the ferry crews for saving the woman’s life. “We do many different kinds of drills, including man overboard drills, in the event of a marine

emergency, and our crews executed the rescue perfectly,” she said. Marshall said people jumping from ferry vessels are “thankfully rare.” The Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Victoria helped monitor and co-ordinate the rescue, and sent a hovercraft from Sea Island, a rescue

ship from Salt Spring Island and a volunteer rescue boat from Delta, but the ferries crew rescued the woman before they arrived. As a result of the incident, B.C. Ferries cancelled the 11 a.m. sailing from Swartz Bay, and the 1 p.m. sailing from Tsawwassen. – Black Press

Strategy aims to help students find housing

I

annual waitlist tops 300 for oncampus residences. By Jenn mcGarriGle The News BulleTiN

Vancouver Island University officials often hear concerns about the availability and quality of student housing and the institution is putting together a housing strategy to help address the issue. The availability of quality student housing is an important part of Vancouver Island University’s recruitment and retention strategy – a key element of the 2013 -14 budget is growing the domestic and international student populations – and the university wants to develop a plan that will co-ordinate all efforts by the different departments at the university, said president Ralph Nilson. The 365 beds on campus fill up quickly, leaving an average of about 300 people on a wait list each year, and often demand is high enough that international students are housed in hotels. With about 16,000 students attending the Nanaimo campus annually, including 1,600 international students, the university gets calls from students and families struggling to find accommodation, said Nilson. “Sometimes we hear stories of people living in sub-standard housing,” he said. “We’re always looking for options.” The institution’s Campus

Master Plan calls for more student housing on campus, but the university is not permitted to take on any debt to develop it, said Nilson. “We’d like to invest in housing, but we don’t have the ability to invest at this time,” he said. University officials plan to bring together all of the people on campus working on housing, such as in the international education department, the high school and those helping first year students, to work on this strategy and deal with the issue together. Nilson said he hopes a central housing strategy will raise the profile of the need for quality housing and it will explore how the university can become better advocates for students. “We don’t take responsibility for students now who take housing in the community,” he said. “If we hear about student complaints, we will be advocates, we’ll work with them and the city to identify problems that exist.” Partnerships to create more student housing in the community is also something the strategy will explore, said Dan Hurley, university spokesman. “We don’t have money to bring to the table, but we do have students,” he said. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Premier makes election pitch directly to voters By Tom FleTcher Black Press

The B.C. Liberal Party is buying a half-hour on TV next Sunday night so Premier Christy Clark can make her pitch for re-election directly to voters. The program will air April 14 at 7 p.m. on Global TV, two days before the formal election campaign begins for the May 14 vote. It will emphasize the economy and include testimonials from community leaders, said Mike McDonald, the B.C. Liberal campaign manager. “It is also a matter of basic respect for voters to outline our priorities and policies,” McDonald said. “We hope the NDP will change course and do the same.” NDP leader Adrian Dix has indicated he will roll out his party’s election platform in a series of announcements, an apparent effort to maximize media coverage. Clark has tied her campaign to the government’s heavily promoted jobs plan, putting the party at the mercy of volatile federal employment statistics. After a surge of new jobs reported in February, there was an equally steep plunge in the

In 2011, VIU’s Faculty of Management established a regional partnership with the Ch’nook Business Education Accord which is run out of the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Sauder School of Business. Since then, eight VIU students have been recognized as Ch’nook Scholars. One of those students, Bonnie Bergeron, is in her fourth year of VIU’s bachelor of business administration program and was at the March event. “Being a part of the Ch’nook Scholar program and also this weekend, has made me realize there are a lot of leadership roles available on the island for aboriginal people and I look forward to getting out there and finding them,” said Bergeron. “This weekend has also given me hope for our future as I see all these aboriginal business students who might

“I have a hard time talking about my world, the aboriginal world, with my fellow business students at TRU, so I really appreciated the opportunity to come to this event and talk to people who can relate to that world and who are also interested in business.” Miranda Huron, program manager for the Ch’nook Program, felt the weekend was a great success. “Seeing the confidence of the students and hearing the inspiring stories and future plans everyone has was definitely a highlight,” said Huron. “I also believe the students walked away inspired with fresh takes on old ideas. The group had a chance to start talking through some of the challenges they face as Aboriginal students.” The next Ch’nook Scholar Gathering will be held at the UBC First Nations House of Learning in fall 2013.

Employment strategy creates opportunity Regional pilot projects open up jobs for adults with developmental disabilities in Nanaimo By Jenn McGarriGle The News BulleTiN

T

erry Newman loves his new job at Extreme Pita on Bowen Road. The 39-year-old, who has a developmental disability, has some volunteer and piecemeal work experience under his belt, but this is his first continuous job. The pride he feels in himself is evident in his smile and in the sparkle in his blue eyes. Two days a week during the lunch rush, Newman greets customers, clears and washes tables and sweeps the floor in the restaurant. It makes him feel good to be earning his own money and he likes interacting with the customers – he was nervous when he first started last week, but by the end of the first shift, his confidence had already increased. Newman’s long-term goal is to earn enough money to live independently – right now, he lives with a family paid to support him in whatever way he needs. “I’ve never done it before,” he said, of living independently. “I think it would be fun.” Doug Carroll, owner/manager at Extreme Pita, hired Newman after meeting Debbie Hastings, an employment specialist with Nanaimo Association for Community Living’s employment program, at a Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce meeting. Newman didn’t require extra training compared with his other staff and it was an easy transition, he said. “Terry’s very coachable and he’s willing to learn,” said Carroll. “He’s capable of doing a lot of the tasks here. It gives us an extra person to do a job that we’d have difficulty covering. The rewards far outweigh what we’ve put in.” This success story is an example of what Community Living B.C., the provincial agency charged with delivering support and services to adults with developmental disabilities and their families, hopes to see more often. As part of its new employment strategy, which aims to see 1,200 new job opportunities provincewide for community living clients open up Victoria Harbour

Terry Newman is enjoying the work he does at Extreme Pita on Bowen Road. A new project announced by Community Living B.C. aims to increase employment opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities.

over the next three years, the agency recently launched three regional pilot projects focused on increasing job opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities, including one in the central and northern Island region. “More and more people we serve have told us that they want to work,” said David Hurford, CLBC spokesman. “This really for us is a response to that growing demand.” The project will gather together stakeholders, such as service providers, employers, self-advocates and school district officials on the Island from Duncan to Port Hardy to focus on community planning and building on existing strengths, he said. The agency has set aside more than $2.5 million to go toward the three pilot projects. The group, assisted by a project manager hired by community living, will develop a regional employment plan, set targets and then get to work

implementing it, said Hurford. “Part of it is to really educate employers about how easy it is to hire someone with a developmental disability,” he said. “Employers think it’s harder than it actually is.” The region was chosen because service providers are working well with employers already and there is a strong self-advocate community, said Hurford. Of about 15,000 CLBC clients, about 2,200 had some sort of employment income last year, he added. Hastings said the key is finding the right fit for both employer and client and when this is achieved, the result has benefits for both – people will support a business for being inclusive and it helps her clients feel more involved in the community. “It builds self-esteem because they’re doing what they see the rest of their family doing,” she said. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Conference promotes cultural understanding By Marilyn assaf Big names in history including Plato, Dante, Shakespeare, Nietzsche and Heisenberg will come to life next week during Vancouver Island University’s 22nd annual Liberal Studies spring conference. Close to 50 Liberal Studies students from Nanaimo, Cowichan, Powell River and Courtenay/Comox will discuss the lives and works of these great philosophers, playwrights and authors, as well as other topics including the Bible and Renaissance Art, during a series of presentations at VIU’s Nanaimo campus today through Thursday (April 9-11). Members of the public are welcome to attend any or all presentations. “Our annual spring conference is an entertaining, informative and educational event where students present their senior projects and other papers,” said liberal studies professor Maureen Okun. “We host this spring conference year after year because at its heart, liberal studies is about conversations face-to face and collective engagements with important and gripping works and ideas. Students in liberal studies participate in such conversations every week, usually during small seminar discussion groups. “The spring conference provides an opportunity to extend the conversation to all liberal studies students, to the VIU community as a whole, and to the wider community beyond the university,” said Okun. “The conference also allows us to showcase the excellent work of our students.” The three-day conference also features keynote speaker Jordan Peterson, clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. He has been featured numerous occasions on Television Ontario’s “Great Ideas” lecture series, and is a regular guest of Steve Paiken’s show The Agenda. “Peterson’s research is eclectic,” said Okun. “It ranges from the Bible to Eastern religion to science and psychology, and so he seems perfect for a liberal studies talk.” All student presentations take place in Bldg. 355 at the Nanaimo campus. Peterson’s keynote address is at 1 pm on Wednesday (April 10) in Bldg. 356, room 109. A complete schedule of conference presentations will be posted at www.viu.ca/ liberalstudies. VIU’s Liberal Studies program draws its rich content from influential works in the humanities, arts and sciences. Through seminar discussions in small classes, professors and students examine how western culture has developed out of a diverse legacy, from ancient Hebraic and Greek traditions to the 21st century. For information on liberal studies courses offered VIU in Nanaimo, please contact Okun at 250-753-3245 (local 2174) or visit www.viu.ca/liberalstudies.

EDITORIAL

New grey wave arriving in B.C.

Eighty years ago, a person with Down syndrome was lucky to make it to his or her 16th birthday. Fortunately, advances in health care, nutrition and de-institutionalization have helped the developmentally disabled live into their senior years, largely at the same pace as the rest of society. This shows the lasting and long-term benefits of treating people with Down syndrome, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder and other cognitive impairments as members of society, not people to be locked away at home or warehoused in institutions. Communities across B.C. have service agencies with excellent day programs, job placement programs and group homes, all in an effort to have people with disabilities live rich, dignified lives. The Ministry of Social Development and by extension Community Living B.C., the Crown agency that manages funding and programs for the developmentally disabled, will roll out plans to better care for their aging clients (it’s also rolling out plans to better manage young adults). Unfortunately, the ministry and CLBC are slow on the uptake. It’s been well known for at least five years that the grey tsunami of cognitively disabled seniors was on its way, but planning for this in government circles really only started last year, after CLBC emerged from multiple damaging scandals. If funding doesn’t materialize, it will leave non-profit organizations stretched thinner and searching for ways to support aging clients. Older people, disabled or not, need more medical care. Retirement homes aren’t staffed with people who understand developmental disabilities, and service agencies generally aren’t equipped or funded to run geriatric programs. Last year the government trumpeted its 12-point program to improve how CLBC operates. Hopefully for its most vulnerable citizens, that’s not empty rhetoric.

Speaking of ambush marketing, I’ll admit I’m no marketing genius, but I recognize good opportunities after brighter minds have spotted them and if I can’t capitalize on them I can at least enjoy watching the multimillion dollar corporate spats that often result, like the ones that erupted between Kodak and Fujifilm, Nike and Reebok and Visa and American Express at world Olympics over the past three decades that I’m confident will continue to entertain almost as satisfyingly as the sporting competition itself at future Olympics. But I really appreciate the simple, direct approach when it comes to ensuring business success. My all time favourite real world example of the old adage, location, location, location was in Seaside, Ore., where in 1995 I came across a taxidermy shop that had opened up right next door to a veterinary clinic.

Re: Doctors warn of burnout at new ER ward, April 6. My mother is 85 years old and woke up in significant pain for no apparent reason. She lives close to the hospital, but having experienced significant wait time myself that resulted in a burst appendix, I called an ambulance believing she would be seen immediately versus driving her myself. I met her in the new emergency department at approximately 10 a.m., she had just arrived by ambulance. She waited until 3 p.m. to see a doctor – so much for going to ER by ambulance. The doctor was exceptional and ordered pain meds for her as she had gall stones and was in significant pain. The nurses were so busy it took another two hours for her to get a shot, she then spent a day and a half in emergency as there were no beds. This is absolutely not working. The staff are doing what they can,

Government ignoring all health-care woes To the Editor,

Re: Doctors warn of burnout at new ER ward, April 6. The truth about our fancy new ER is a shame.

Why is the Vancouver Island Health Authority printing a fancy, free colour magazine to tell us how wonderful they are and wasting money that should be used for doctors? Or is this reading material for a five-hour wait before seeing a doctor and going into convulsions? Call me crazy, but this

new magazine is a waste of our tax dollars. Our ER has asked for funds to hire doctors but the government chooses to give $11 million for one night of a Bollywood production and VIHA is printing a magazine. This makes Monty Python seem like a drama not a comedy.

Attending RCMP funeral all about honour To the Editor,

Re: Honouring Officers should be personal, Letters, April 4. It is obvious the writer commenting on the large contingent of officers, honouring one of the RCMP members is not aware of the protocol. These are a special group of men and women who at great and dangerous expense to themselves are trained to protect citizens from harm, and implement the laws of our country. They are well aware that they face danger every day on duty. So whether they die in that event, or any other way, they must work as a team – a band of brothers or sisters so to speak. As do the firefighters and all who put their lives on the line, for all of us. And when one is taken by accident, or at the hands of criminals, their code is to come together from far and wide, to stand up for all at risk, and honour their institution and fallen. I am proud of the work they do, and I say more power to that tradition. Paying for that with our taxes is the least we

Basin investment helps all of Nanaimo To the Editor,

The Pacific Northwest Marina Group is interested in the lease of the Nanaimo Boat Basin because it is a sound investment opportunity. People need to acknowledge this fact, and utilize this good investment advice to add the lease to our city’s investment holdings. This would keep the generated income within the community and best serve Nanaimo constituents through continued access. As an added benefit, I’m

confident many would donate time and materials toward the maintenance of the adequate existing structures, thus contributing to the bottom line. This type of forethought may help to ensure a sustainable future for this great city.

Letter removes shine from land agreement To the Editor,

Re: Forum aims to respond to race issues, April. It saddens me that the writings of one narrowminded individual have outshined what was a momentous occasion in Nanaimo – the Snuneymuxw First Nation and provincial signing of a reconciliation agreement that will in the words of Chief Doug White, “give my people what is required to begin to hold ourselves up in a new way.” Don Olsen’s comments in the Nanaimo Daily News about what First Nations have not done belies the accomplishments they have made. After generations of children were taken

from home to residential schools and returned fitting into neither culture, these nations are now taking a stand that is seeing reparation and a resurgence of their cultural identity; an identity the government of Canada tried to erase. First Nations is now seeking redress for the breaking of ‘contracts’ by government in the form of treaties not honoured. They are moving in a direction that will see their independence from governments that have attempted to control their lives and treated them like children. The agreement giving Snuneymuxw title to 877 hectares of lands in the Mount Benson area and two acres of culturally significant land in Departure Bay is momentous. As Chief White states “This is coming home to my people. It is a remarkable achievement. It’s a truly remarkable day.” As Minister Ida Chong stated “This is not a journey that we travel independently, it is a journey that we can only travel on together.” I, for one, am proud to take that journey.

Spring Awakening explores essence of youth BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

S

pring Awakening captures the essence of youth. The play follows teenagers who are awakening to their sexuality, but who are also dealing with some dark issues in their lives including child abuse and suicide. Even though the original play was written in the early 1890s, the subject matter is still relevant today, said Dean Chadwick, artistic producer for Schmooze Productions. The play was later turned into a rock musical. Chadwick said it’s interesting that in today’s world with access to different forms of media that there are still some subjects that are taboo. However, Spring Awakening isn’t as grim as the issues may make it appear, said Chadwick, adding there are some bright spots and poignant moments along the way. The play is made more accessible through its music, said Chadwick. “I think this show will knock people’s socks off,” said Gary Alfred, who plays the teenager Hanschen in the production. Schmooze Productions is bringing the play to Nanaimo Centre Stage from Thursday (April 11) to May 4. The actors will perform in the round. The configuration means there are only three rows of seating around the actors, which adds intimacy and excitement to the performance, said Chadwick. “It brings a nice intensity to everyone’s performance,” added Alfred. Alfred said his character goes through the basic struggles every teenager deals with when they hit adolescence. “The big thing he is exploring is his sexuality,” he said. The role of Hanschen is the first Alfred

has played since he was in elementary school. “I’ve always wanted to act and took an improvisational course with Dean (Chadwick),” he said.

Chadwick was impressed with Alfred’s abilities and asked him to try out for the production. Spring Awakening runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Tickets are $25 plus tax and are available online at www.schmoozeproduc tions.com or at Rich One Beauty Salon, located at #1-2145 Bowen Rd. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Symphony seeks flutists for event

Community members invited to create festival banners

Band fills theatre with music

Flutists are invited to join the Vancouver Island Symphony’s flute choir during its annual community day event. The symphony’s Community Day is April 20 at the Port Theatre. The organization commissioned a new piece by Jocelyn Morlock for principal flutist, Paolo Bortolussi. The symphony is celebrating by inviting flute players from the community to play in a flute choir led by Bortolussi and Cindy Speelman. Flute choir rehearsals are Friday (April 12) 5:30-7:30 p.m. and Saturday (April 13) 1-3 p.m. An optional master class with Bortolussi is Saturday

Coloured banners created by community members blow in the wind every spring along boulevards and roadways in Nanaimo. These banners are created by professional artists and community members who want to add a vibrancy to city streets. Nanaimo’s Festival of Banners, which is organized every year by the Nanaimo Art Gallery, has been running for 26 years. People are invited to help make the works of art for this year’s theme Creative City. Interested individuals can submit their entries by completing the entry form, available on the art gallery’s website. About 150 to 400 banners are created each year, depending on funding. They are hung on various lamp posts in the city around mid-May. Banner designs must be submitted on medium weight card paper, and be seven centimetres high by 10 cm wide. Designs must be outlined with a black felt marker

and have the person’s name, address, phone number, e-mail address and title of the piece on the back. The entry fee is $10 and submissions will be reviewed and chosen by the Nanaimo Art Gallery. In the fall the banners will be on sale, $30 for small and $40 for large. Painters can pre-purchase their banner after they complete it, which they can pick up in the fall. Once a person is selected to paint a banner they will be contacted and invited to create it at the painting space at Nanaimo North Town Centre. To learn more about the process people can watch the 25th anniversary documentary video. Complete guidelines, a link to the video and entry forms are available at www.nanaimoartgallery.com. Submissions will be accepted until late April depending on funding and the number of entries received.

The thunderous power of instruments played by Nanaimo Concert Band members will fill the Port Theatre Sunday (April 14). The band hosts its annual spring concert at 2:30 p.m. This year it’s conducted by director of music retired Lt. Col Gerry Klaassen and features numerous solos performed by members. Instruments highlighted in solos includes flutes, reeds, brass instruments and a xylophone. The Nanaimo Concert Band is regarded as one of the oldest continuous community bands in the country. It received the city’s cultural award for excellence in 1997 and performed during various community events over the years including the annual Remembrance Day ceremonies. Throughout the summer the band also hosts concerts in the park in the mid-Island area. Tickets for the spring concert at $16 and are available by calling 250-754-8550, at the Port Theatre ticket office located at 125 Front St., or www.porttheatre.com.

3:30-5:30 p.m. Registration is $25, which will go toward the symphony’s education and outreach programs. The optional master class on April 13 is an additional $25. People who join the flute choir can also purchase a special discounted ticket to hear Bortolussi play during the symphony’s Birds of a Feather concert April 20 at 7:30 p.m. The flute choir project is a partnership between the symphony and Nanaimo Conservatory of Music. For a registration form and more information please go to www.vancou verislandsymphony.com.

Chamber Chat

Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce CEO

Susan Allen

The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce is committed to assisting our local businesses to succeed. We do this through advocacy on our member’s behalf. We are delighted to have this platform through the News Bulletin to inform our members and community about our initiatives. One of our strategic goals is advocacy on behalf of our members. Our latest initiatives have been: Mobile Business Licences – The chamber recently went before council to ask them to implement a program that will assist local businesses who live in Nanaimo but work in other communities. You, as a local business, would continue to purchase your Nanaimo business licence but you would also have the option of purchasing a mobile business licence (MBL) that would allow you to conduct business in any other community that is involved in this program. This would mean that if you conduct business in Parksville, Port Alberni or Campbell River, you would only be required to purchase an MBL rather than purchase a business licence for each community. Council has agreed to explore this opportunity with the other Island communities who have expressed an interest. Budget Presentation to Council – The chamber went before council on

behalf of our members to ensure that the business interests were represented. The chamber has also worked with the city to bring the commercial taxes down and the city staff, as of March 11, presented to council a plan to lower commercial taxes. Vancouver Island/ Gulf Island Accord – Founding organizer of an accord to co-ordinate a response to Islandspecific issues such as B.C. Ferries and Fortis B.C. common natural gas rates. We are much stronger with one voice to lobby government on Island issues. Policy – The chamber has recently submitted two policies to the B.C. Chamber on succession planning and asset management as we recognize the implications to city’s budgets if they do not implement an asset management policy. These issues will affect every community and business in B.C. as the financial implications are huge. We have also lobbied both the provincial and federal governments to assist with funding a pilot project for succession planning as well as made recommendations to government about changing some of their existing programs to assist with succession planning. If you have any questions, or are interested in hearing about more of our programs, please call 250-7561191.

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 monthover-month activity through the first quarter of 2013

Buyers are realizing that this is a good time to buy a home.

which should translate into increased unit sales as we move into the spring,” said VIREB president Gary Gray. “With stable pricing, 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 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 March 2012 average price of $349,806, Parksville/Qualicum prices edged up two per cent to $359,448, Port Alberni/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 disparity between 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. – Black Press

Barsby athletes protected from head, dental injuries The spring football season kicks off this May and 60-plus Barsby football players will be equipped with custom-fit mouth guards, courtesy of Harbour City Dental Hygiene. The clinic has adopted the student athletes at John Barsby Community School to help prevent dental and head injuries resulting from contact sports by providing custom fit mouth guards at no cost. Rob Stevenson, head of the athletics program at John Barsby and Barsby Bulldogs coach, opened up his classroom on March 25 for the students to have impressions of their mouth made by the dental hygienists.

Quickfacts

for INformatIoN on sports mouth guards, please visit www.harbourcitydental.com.

This is the first step in making a custom fit mouth guard. The hygienists will then fabricate the mouth guards and the students will have them fitted this week during National Dental Hygienists Week, prior to their first training camp on April 21. More than 30 per cent of all high school athletes report at least one dental injury and less than 10 per cent of knocked-out

teeth are successfully reimplanted. The cost of replacing that lost tooth can reach $5,000. The easiest and most effective way to protect these athletes from injury is a custom fit mouth guard. When it comes to sports equipment, mouth guards should be a priority. With adequate separation of teeth, the risk of tooth fractures, chips and evulsions is significantly reduced and importantly, the occurrence and severity of a concussion is greatly decreased. For more information on sports mouth guards, please visit www.harbourcity dental.com.

Nanaimo Economic Development Update

with CEO Sasha Angus

Nanaimo is a place where diversity and inclusion are the fabric of our community. From the first inhabitants to the most recent newcomer, our community has always been founded on the concept that we are in this together, and neighbours supporting neighbours is the best way to foster a warm and welcoming community. Accepting each other and valuing our differences is a strength and will be an important cornerstone of our future prosperity. As with many jurisdictions in Canada and around the world, we face a significant number of retirements in the coming years as baby boomers leave both the workforce and their roles as business owners in our community. Demographic changes will increasingly become a challenge without the infusion of knowledge and resources from other destinations. As a community we need to embrace this opportunity and welcome new perspectives while fostering time-honoured traditions. For many industries this is a problem that faces them now, and will only get more acute in the years to come. It is predicted in the next 15 to 20 years that fully 70 per cent of our population growth and an overwhelming number of our workforce entrants will come from immigrants choosing to make Canada their home. Reaching out to these newcomers and ensuring we engage

underrepresented communities in our workforce development will be crucial in overcoming this challenge. As if that wasn’t enough, according to a Royal Bank study, it is expected that more than 25 per cent of business owners over the age of 50 will choose to retire in the coming five years, putting into question whether their businesses will continue on in our community. With this “gray wave” facing our community, welcoming new entrepreneurs and fostering bright young minds in Nanaimo to buy these businesses can no longer be seen as a nice “to do” – it is a must. Together we can and must continue building a welcoming community as the foundation of our cultural, environmental, social and economic vibrancy.

June 15, 1959 – March 28, 2013

Larry was born in Powell River BC to parents Donald and Gladys Grais. The family moved to Nanaimo when Larry was very young and he always had many fond memories of growing up in Nanaimo. As a young man Larry served in the Armed Forces, worked in the forest industry and even worked as a deck-hand on a freighter. Eventually his work led him to the commercial fishing industry. Fishing seemed to be his calling as Larry rose to become a very successful fisherman. Larry was well known as a master of gillnetting, seining and trolling. His no-nonsense demeanor and his sense of knowing where to find fish earned the respect of his colleagues. Since his retirement seventeen years ago Larry enjoyed hunting, sport fishing, time spent with grandchildren and playing crib with his friends. Larry was pre-deceased by his father Donald (WWII), his wife Donna (nee Wheatley) of 49 years, his mother Gladys Madill and stepfather Norman Madill. He is survived by his loving children Randy Grais (Janette), Rhonda Erickson (Blake), and Norm Grais (Valerie). Larry also leaves behind three grandchildren and numerous cousins as well as nieces and nephews. The family wishes to convey their appreciation to the staff and doctors at NRGH and with special thanks to Dr. S Rasaiah. A celebration of life and open house is planned for 2:00pm Sunday, April 14 at 2769 Tamara Drive in Nanaimo. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Sands ~ Nanaimo

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Richard on March 28, 2013 surrounded by the love of his family and friends. Richard is survived by his loving wife of 26 years Connie (Meservia) and the pride and joy of his life – his three children Emily, Dane and Claire. He is also survived by his mother Jackie (Jim), brothers Randy (Celine), Renie (Nati), sister Kathy (Steffen), mother-in-law Marge, brothers-in-law Doyle (Jeanie), Lyle (Joan), Keith (Mary), Boyd (Sandy), aunts, uncles and numerous nieces and nephews. Richard was born in Brandon, Manitoba and developed his artistic and mechanical aptitude as a young man including his entrepreneurial spirit and love of music. Richard’s ideas always included thinking outside of the ER[ DQG ÀJXULQJ RXW D GLIIHUHQW ZD\ RI JHWWLQJ WKLQJV done. Richard had an enjoyable hockey career and continued his sporting talent by discovering his love of fastball. Richard enjoyed sharing that love with everyone and he always worked to promote the sport to ensure that all kids could play ball and have fun. Richard found great rewards in coaching his team to victory. As a loving dad, Richard treasured spending time with his three children and sharing with their successes from football, to coaching his daughter’s team, to seeing performances done by his children. Richard was an amazing husband, father, son, brother and friend to all. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 1 pm at the Moose Hall, 1356 Cranberry Avenue, Nanaimo. A baseball game is to follow the service at Elaine Hamilton Park (Trofton). So bring your ball gloves and lawn chairs and join in the fun and remember to bring DORQJ\RXU´7HDP6SLULW¾,QOLHXRIà RZHUVDQDFFRXQW has been set up for Richard’s children at Scotia Bank Account #40220-00812-21.

Season starts with last-inning victory Inbrief I

PIRATES WIN 3-2, lose 5-2 on opening day. BY GREG SAKAKI

We seem to always have a comeback in us somewhere.

THE NEWS BULLETIN

Fans at Serauxmen Stadium saw some trademark Nanaimo Pirates baseball in the home opener. The Hub City Paving Pirates won their first game of the B.C. Premier Baseball League season on Saturday, coming back to beat the Victoria Eagles 3-2. The Eagles went on to win the second half of the doubleheader by a 5-2 score. “It was a very good first game, very entertaining for the fans,” said Zach Diewert, who hit a tworun home run. “The second game wasn’t fully up to standards, but we’re going to work on it. I thought it was a pretty good opening day for us.” The Eagles held a 2-0 lead going into the bottom of the seventh inning, but Diewert got hold of one and lined it off the flagpole in left field to tie the game 2-2. “I was really just trying to get a good piece on the ball, I wasn’t trying to do too much with it, just trying to hit a ball hard, maybe to the gap and it just worked out,” he said. Soon after, Alex Rogers delivered the game-winning single, scoring T.J. Mah from second. “Pirate baseball,” said Doug Rogers, the team’s manager. “We seem to always have a come-

back in us somewhere, although you don’t want to live and die by that.” Devon Geary earned the win on the mound after throwing 1 1/3 relief innings, allowing one hit. Alex Rogers was 3-for-3 and reached base

four times. The comeback win excited the Pirates, but Doug Rogers said his players went into the next game complacently. “After we got that win we figured we’d just throw our gloves on the

field and win the ball game,” the manager said. Instead, the Pirates were sloppy, making four errors on defence. “When the game goes awry that way, it burns a little bit,” Doug Rogers said.

Alex Rogers threw a complete-game loss, allowing five hits and four earned runs. Six different Pirates had hits, including Tristan Olsen with a double and Aidan Goodall with an RBI single. Doug Rogers said his team can’t always rely on late-inning heroics and needs to be focused from the start. “It’s what happens early in the game, and kids need to recognize that, when the big moments are and we had a couple in the [second] game where we didn’t cash in runs and it cost us.” Diewert said batters need to step to the plate and be aggressive, wanting to make a difference for their team. “You want to be up and you want to deliver,” he said. GAME ON … The Pirates are on the road next Saturday (April 13) and Sunday, facing the Vancouver Cannons and the North Shore Twins, respectively. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

VIBI Mariners score boatload of runs, earn two wins on road trip The VIBI Mariners went out on the road looking to turn their season around, and they started to do just that. Nanaimo’s Vancouver Island Baseball Institute Mariners won two of four games in Kamloops on the weekend. VIBI outscored the Calgary Dinos 14-11 in the opener Saturday, then lost 6-1 to the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack in that night’s late game. On Sunday the M’s were edged 7-6 by Calgary but finished up with a 5-2 victory over TRU. “We’re steadily finding things

to be easier, getting a little better at some things,” said Jordan Blundell, VIBI manager. “There’s still some things we’re leaving on the table. We do need to clean up our defence and we do need to clean up a few other things.” Amid all the offence, Blundell said some of the highlights of the weekend came on the pitching mound. Cody Chartrand had a strong outing in the 6-1 loss, allowing three earned runs over six innings while striking out eight. With scouts watching, Chartrand’s fastball was between

87-91 miles per hour all night and touched 93. In the weekend finale, veteran Reiley Grose willed his team to victory. “Reiley stepped up and flat out beat TRU…” said Blundell. Connor Russell was the winning pitcher in the barnburner game, allowing four earned runs over six innings while striking out eight. Darren Kolk hit a single, double and triple, driving in four runs. Tim Scarr also supplied four runs batted in, while Dallas Monk had two hits, three

RBIs and four runs scored. The next game Kolk, Tyson Dyck and Chad Schultz each had two hits. In the one-run loss, Austin Penner allowed three earned runs over four innings. Monk and Connor Merilees were both 3-for-4 at the plate and Kolk was 2-for-3. Monk and Jackson McCuaig both hit singles and doubles in Sunday’s win. GAME ON … The M’s return to Kamloops for games Saturday (April 13) and Sunday against TRU and the Okanagan Coyotes.
