Council wants further work on fire report

I

SMALLER HALLS thought to help reduce costs. BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

A report looking into ways to meet increasing demand for emergency response services was referred back to city staff for review during Monday’s city council meeting. Since 2005, the city’s goal has been to have the first fire engine on an emergency scene within six minutes. To meet that goal and maintain sustainable costs, the report proposes building more small halls, staffed with two firefighters per shift, with additional equipment and firefighters moved into areas as risk of incidents rises throughout the day, such as during rush hour when motor vehicle accidents become more frequent in certain areas. Currently, halls are staffed with three to four firefighters per shift. Nanaimo Fire Rescue currently averages about 6,500 calls per year and annual demand continues to rise steadily with more than 9,000 anticipated annually by 2024.

The new model proposed in the repor t is based on changing requirements. Historically Nanaimo Fire Rescue dealt with structure fires, which now only account for 1.7 per cent of calls for service. Most structure fires occur in central Nanaimo and the downtown core areas. Because of older construction, fires in those areas are the most severe, cause the most damage and present the highest risk for injury or death. Across the city medical aid and motor vehicle accident calls account for well over 70 per cent of firefighter responses. The report was presented with the intent of having council receive and review the material and move on to consultation with firefighters, citizens, other emergency response agencies and other stakeholders, the results of which would be presented to council for further consideration in May. But in a five-tothree vote, the report was effectively rejected and referred back to city staff to give further consideration to comments councillors expressed at the meeting. ◆ See ‘COUNCILLORS’ /5

High turnout expected to hear school district plan BY JENN M C GARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

A “far-reaching” report outlining recommendations from a consultant on what should be included in Nanaimo school district’s 10-year facilities plan will be

a strategic plan for the district. The strategic plan consists of three goals – meet each student’s needs; continuous improvement of instruction and assessment; and enhanced facilities for learning. The final

Former Nanaimo lawyer facing criminal charges By Jenn M c GarriGle THe NewS BUlleTiN

Lantzville faces two-per cent tax hike budgEt iNcrEASES pay for firefighters, hiring new community planner. By Jenn M c GarriGle THe NewS BUlleTiN

District of Lantzville residents will likely see a two per cent tax increase this year. Council approved the first two readings of the district’s five-year financial plan on Monday evening. The $4.2-million 2013 budget includes an increase in firefighter remuneration, a new full-time planner, a few capital expenditures such as road and water improvements, and increases to staff wages and benefits negotiated in the new collective agreement. The district expects to finish the year with about a $141,000 surplus. “We’re up to final reading and adoption, so I think we’ve finalized it,” said Mayor Jack de Jong. “I’m very confident with the budget as it stands. I think it’s fair. I haven’t had one negative comment about it.” Council increased firefighter remuneration by about $28,000, which includes increasing the fire chief and deputy fire chief’s wages by

$4,000 each to $12,000 and $10,000 per year respectively, and increases to practice and call-out pay for firefighters. De Jong said the move is to bring firefighter remuneration more in line with other jurisdictions and the amount is still low, with the highest remuneration being the fire chief’s salary of $12,000 per year. “As it is, this community is really getting a good bargain,” he said. While Lantzville has previously contracted out about 1,000 hours of planning per year, this year’s budget adds a full-time planner as a regular employee at an additional cost of about $20,000, said de Jong. He said he has fielded complaints from developers wanting access to a planner and council will now have someone available on a more frequent basis to assist with bylaw changes. “It was one of the weaknesses in our operation,” said de Jong. “I didn’t realize how much work they fundamentally do.” The largest expenditure in the budget is $800,000 for district staff – nine staff members and council – and this total includes the negotiated wage increases, he said. The district decided not to increase the seasonal parks

i’m very confident with the budget as it stands. i think it’s fair.

labourer position to 12 months fulltime, preferring instead to contract out roughly $150,000 earmarked for trail work carried over from the previous budget, de Jong added. Major capital expenditures include up to $250,000 for a water main replacement at Peterson Road, $475,000 for road surface repair and replacement and $60,000 for seismic upgrades at Costin Hall. Besides the two per cent tax increase, residents will also notice a $12 increase in the solid waste parcel tax to cover the costs of this service and the 500 customers on a sewer system will also see these rates increase to cover maintenance and other costs. De Jong expects council will do a third reading and final adoption of the budget on April 22.

A former Nanaimo lawyer disbarred by the Law Society of B.C. in 2007 for allegedly overbilling the Department of Justice is now facing criminal charges. Shane Dennison is facing criminal charges of fraud, breach of trust by public officer, falsification of documents and forgery. Offence dates listed are between September 2002 and June 2004. His first court appearance is April 23 in Nanaimo provincial court. In the spring of 2007, the Law Society of B.C. found Dennison and Donald King, another former Nanaimo lawyer, guilty of professional misconduct after a forensic accountant hired by the society found that the men over-billed the federal justice department by more than $277,000. A second society hearing panel disbarred Dennison and King in November of that year. Crown spokeswoman Samantha Hulme said in an e-mailed response that no charges were approved against King because the available evidence did not support it. “As to the length of time before charges were laid, I can tell you that it was a complicated

and obviously serious file which took the police a lengthy period of time to investigate and gather the necessary evidence to submit to Crown to support criminal charges,” she said. The Law Society of B.C. hearing panel report issued in April 2007 states that Dennison worked for Nanaimo law firm Hunter Garrett Lobay until the firm ceased to operate as a partnership in 2002, continuing on as an association. A new firm – Lobay Dennison Beaubier – emerged in 2003. A contract with the federal justice department to act as the agent in Nanaimo and Courtenay survived these changes. The report states that the over-billing was discovered by a junior lawyer who was offered the opportunity in 2003 to do some Department of Justice work for the company. To get a handle on the workload, he reviewed the Courtenay lawyers’ time sheets and discovered evidence the sheets had been altered. In 2004, following a confrontation with Dennison, the junior lawyer took his discovery to David Lobay, a senior partner in the law firm, who filed a complaint with the law society, reads the report. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Plan has far-reaching implications u From /1 Starting at 6 p.m. in the gym at Nanaimo District Secondary School, the public will have a chance to hear Player’s recommendations on the facilities plan. Jamie Brennan, school board chairman, expects a large turnout at the meeting. “I think the word is out that this is fairly comprehensive and it’s going to affect a lot of areas in

the district,” he said. “His report is quite far-reaching. What we’re being faced with is quite an ambitious undertaking by the district affecting a number of programs and schools.” Player’s recommendations are not binding and any school closure proposal requires a 60-day public consultation process, said Brennan. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Search uncovers stolen tools, keys

Nanaimo Mounties nabbed two suspects and seized several thousand dollars worth of tools and equipment during a search of a home in Cedar Tuesday. Members of Nanaimo RCMP’s GIS D Team raided the house on Cedar Heights Crescent at about 2:15 p.m. Investigators seized tools stolen from a construction work site on South Forks Road March 31 and computer equipment stolen during a break-in at a Serious Coffee outlet March 8. Police also found hundreds of keys, commonly referred to as “progressive keys” used by criminals to gain access to motor vehicles. “They’re keys that have been filed down to soften the metal so they conform to the tumblers in the ignition locks, so it doesn’t do any damage to the car,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. Trevor Kenneth McCabe, 36, of Nanaimo and Ryan James Anderson, 39, of Victoria were held in custody and appeared in Nanaimo provincial court Wednesday. Both men were charged with two counts of possession of stolen property. Anderson is being held in custody until Tuesday (April 16). McCabe’s next court appearance has not yet been set.

An 86-year-old Nanaimo man is the latest victim to fall prey to the grandson scam. The victim was taken for $2,000 dollars after he was led to believe his grandson was in trouble and desperately needed money to get out of jail. The caller told the victim he was his grandson – even provided the correct name – and said he had been in a car accident, while in Montreal for a friend’s funeral. The victim sent the money, but became suspicious and called his actual grandson the next day only to have his suspicions he had been scammed confirmed. This scam has taken thousands of dollars from grandparents throughout the province.

Councillors concerned over staffing

CHRIS BUSH/THe NewS BUlleTIN

Motor vehicle accidents and medical aid calls make up the majority of calls for service from Nanaimo Fire Rescue. A report, referred back to city staff by city council Monday, calls for construction of several two-man fire halls throughout the city to meet future service demands.

report outright and said putting it forward for consultation implied council was giving a green light to its recommendations. “I think it’s implicit in the notion of receiving it that we’re satisfied with the recommended direction and I’m not,” Brennan said. “I’m not satisfied that council’s intent was ever to abandon the movement towards professional service in favour of a new business model and for those reasons I won’t support receiving this report.” Coun. Bill Bestwick voted to refer the report back to city

staff, but said he did not think receiving it indicated council’s endorsement. Nor did Fred Pattje, Diana Johnstone or Mayor John Ruttan, who voted in favour o f re c e i v i n g t h e report. “I’d like to be able to think that we have the opportunity before us now to morph something that might work without just dismissing everything,” Bestwick said. “We might be able to have a combination of things that may work for us.” “The risk-based staffing issue appeared to be the most contentious

issue,” said Ron Lambert, Nanaimo Fire Rescue chief. “The idea was if the risk increased in a certain area, then we staff up in that area. It’s an issue of productivity and affordability.” Council gave no instructions on how to rework the report other than to consider councillors’ comments. Lambert did not know when the report would be presented to council again. “ We ’ re a c t u a l l y going to meet to review and try and understand what council wants and then proceed to taking it back to council,” Lambert said. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

u From /1 A major sticking point appeared to be the report’s recommendation for two-man crews. Cost savings achieved by building two-man fire halls versus staying with a traditional four-man hall model could tally more than $4 million in savings annually by 2024. The report also called for additional investment, training and reliance on paid, on-call firefighters to supplement manpower during major emergencies. “I’m star ting to regret that I made this motion to review the fire plan,” said Coun. Ted Greves. “My motion was to update the response coverage study to reflect current conditions and to best meet the standard of the first engine on scene within six minutes 90 per cent of the time and I was assuming that that would be a four-man engine… I don’t think our target in 2005 says four-man engine. It says six minutes 90 per cent of the time, so I guess we kind of goofed on that one.” Coun. Diane Brennan rejected the

Youngster made impact on community

HAILEY JONES died of complications from pneumonia. By Chris hamlyn The News BulleTiN

In her 12 short years on Earth, Nanaimo’s Hailey Jones made quite an impact on the community and its people. In and out of hospital in her battle with cerebral palsy, Hailey died in the arms of her parents, Darryl and Patty Jones, April 3 at 10 p.m. in the pediatric ward at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. Dealing with another bout of pneumonia, Hailey took a turn for the worse when her body didn’t respond to prescribed antibiotics. “In the past they would give her some antibiotics and some chest physio and she’d start getting better in a couple of days,” said Darryl. “But this time she didn’t and the palliative doctor talked to us that she wasn’t going to make it without machines. “You do everything you can for your child to make her comfortable and as much as possible, she lived a happy life. At the end we decided we needed to let her go and she passed in our arms.” The family is holding a celebration of Hailey’s life Saturday (April 13) at 1 p.m. at the ET Family Church, 1300 Princess Royal Ave. It’s a chance to honour all the good things and the peo-

Hailey Jones, with her father Darryl, loved the outside, music, sunshine, and most of all people. The 12-year-old, who had a big impact on those she met, died April 3 at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital from complications of cerebral palsy.

ple who connected with Hailey. “She loved people and had an incredible effect on literally everyone who met her,” said pastor Dan Cousins, of the Genesis Christian Centre, who will be leading the memorial. “There will be hundreds who will be greatly moved by her absence in this world.” Darryl said the community has always had a connection with his daughter. “About nine years ago we discovered hyperbaric oxygen therapy where kids get high doses of oxygen in a pressurized environment,” he said. “It was costly and we didn’t know how we were going to do it for her, but it was amazing how the people

of Nanaimo rallied around Hailey.” The people came through and the therapy provided her a quality of life that included going to school. “Before she was tormented by everyday life and seizures. She basically stayed in her room,” said Darryl. “But she loved school. She just beamed coming off the school bus.” Another gift from the community – an iPad from Rutherford Elementary School for its Life Skills program for children with special needs – also helped Hailey interact. By hitting a switch with her head, she could activate the iPad which in turn would play music for her, read to her and

prompt her with options for her to communicate. “She was non-verbal many years, could only communicate through yes and no questions,” said Patty. “Lifting her eyes up or a smile would be her yes. Looking down was her no. “But the introduction to technology transformed her life. The iPad technology just proved there was just so much inside her and how much potential she had. “From that point on she was never fussy or irritable because she could finally communicate what she was experiencing.” Cousins said Hailey had the ability to express herself with great joy and caused great joy in many people. “I never saw her let the cerebral palsy get her down,” he said. “She had every odd against her and beat them all until she had an opportunity to go to heaven.” A trust fund has set up at the Hammond Bay branch of Coastal Community Credit Union. Anyone wishing to donate can ask for the Hailey Grace Jones memorial fund administered by the Genesis Christian Centre. They can also donate at www.haileygracejones.com and go to the PayPal account. And another memorial fund has been set up in Hailey’s name to benefit the Nanaimo Child Development Centre at 1135 Nelson St.

The Employee Action and Rights Network will stage a sit-in at Mac’s Convenience Store on Departure Bay Road as part of a campaign to restore Grant’s Law to the stipulations laid out when the statute was originally introduced. The law was enacted in 2006 after Grant De Patie, a gas station attendant in Maple Ridge, B.C., was killed

while trying to stop a driver who fled without paying for $12 worth of gasoline. The new law required drivers to pay before filling vehicles, and barred employees from working alone at night. The law has since been altered so gas station and convenience store staff can work alone overnight as long as employers have a required set of workplace safety measures in place. Nanaimo is one of three Mac’s Convenience Store

locations – the others are in Vancouver and Victoria – targeted for sit-ins because the company was among those that lobbied for changes to the law in 2012, said Kassandra Cordero, Employee Action and Rights Network event coordinator. “Whichever government we end up working with after the election, this particular issue is going to be one of the most important issues for young workers in the province and also for (the

Employee Action and Rights Network),” Cordero said. “It’s kind of a signal to whatever government gets into place that this is absolutely critical and the lives of workers should remain safe in their workplace.” The protest happens Friday (April 12) at the Mac’s parking lot, starting with a press conference at 7 p.m. followed by an overnight sitin ending at 6 a.m. Saturday (April 13).

Students at two Nanaimo secondary schools earned provincial recognition this week for their green initiatives. Dover Bay and Wellington secondary schools each won a $1,000 grant in Science World’s fifth annual B.C. Green Games contest, which rewards environmental success stories. More than 4,500 votes were cast by students, teachers, parents and other community members this year and 20 elementary and secondary schools were awarded $1,000 grants to continue or begin environmental initiatives. Dover won with a video and writeup of work the school’s environmental club has done at Pioneer Park to contribute to the health of the forest, such as tree thinning and invasive species removal. Gordon Graham, teacher sponsor of the Dover Bay Eco Club, said the group might put the money toward one of the initiatives the club is looking into – students hope to set up a community garden at the front of the school and another idea is to install water bottle filling stations at the school. The green wall aquaponics project at Wellington also earned a grant. Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines growing fish with growing vegetables. The aquaponics system uses less energy and water than growing plants the traditional way and the fish waste feeds the plants. The green wall acts as a natural insulator, cutting heating and cooling costs, and uses space more efficiently by growing vertically instead of horizontally. The Wellington project consists of a wall of plants connected to three fish tanks, but teacher John Mandziuk said students want to have four walls of plants up in the school’s inner courtyard by mid-May. Earlier this year, the school received a $2,700 grant from the World Wildlife Federation to help fund the project. All 132 projects entered in the B.C. Green Games this year, as well as more than 500 past projects, can be viewed at www. bcgreengames.ca.

EDITORIAL

Floor is open on school plan If anyone is hoping for a say on how education services will be delivered in Nanaimo school district in the future, now’s the chance. The new 10-year facilities plan the district is developing will have a big impact, and people need to let trustees know what they think. Tonight (April 11) a consultant presents recommendations on what should be included in the plan and board chairman Jamie Brennan promises proposals will be comprehensive and affect many areas of the district. With consistent budget shortfalls resulting in cuts to programs and services in recent years – this school year being an exception – and no indication the province will give districts more money, district officials have to make some tough decisions. Decisions like school closures and major changes to the way some programs are run are almost certainly on the table for discussion. Behind development of the facilities plan is a year’s worth of work by district staff. Following a comprehensive public consultation process last spring, staff developed a strategic plan for the district that consists of three goals – meet each student’s needs; continual improvement of instruction and assessment; and enhanced facilities for learning, the last of which requires a facilities plan that takes into account specific optimal school sizes. The strategic plan prompted little public response when it was approved by trustees in December – no surprise since it mainly consisted of broad goals and little specifics. Not to mention parents rarely speak out until a decision has some personal effect. But tonight’s report will likely put forth recommendations that target specific programs or schools. Parents, students and community members have a chance to get informed at the meeting and let trustees know their thoughts.

The official Green Party position is to place a moratorium on B.C. gas drilling while a comprehensive water use policy is developed. Current innovations such as reusing municipal wastewater are ignored. The Green platform also demands disclosure of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing, which the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission has already done. If one were to design a self-fulfilling prophecy that B.C.’s LNG project is doomed to fail, the Green Party platform would be a good place to start. Reading through Green Book 2013, I’m left with the impression that much of it remains calculated as a soothing message for urban voters who have been convinced it’s courageous to drive their cars down to an antitanker protest. If Weaver, Sterk or any other Greens get elected, they will be surfing a wave of protest votes from people weary of the B.C. Liberals and the NDP. It will not be due to the practicality or even internal consistency of their polices. It’s still pretty easy being Green. u Tom Fletcher is a legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com.

Security lapsing for guards To the Editor,

Re: Police arrest suspect in break and enter string, April 9. This incident is generating a fair bit of discussion in both Canada and the U.S. because the safety of the people providing security for clients/ employers is often a last thought. The usual lament on the part of employers is training is too expensive and if they start delivering safety training it will increase the billing rate, make them less competitive and clients will go to a cheaper (low-ball) security company. Unfortunately, it’s a lament with some accuracy. It is true, all too often those that purchase security services, particularly when “security guards” are involved go for the cheapest, but this is a whole other story. Security companies and clients forget the Workers Compensation Act and Regulations require workers receive

safety training and employers must be compliant with the law. Due diligence must be met. So I ask; who’s protecting the protectors? If not employers, then who? I’ve asked WorksafeB.C. on more occasions than I can count why they are not directing more enforcement and education at the private security industry. Simply, security flies under the proverbial radar. I don’t think WorksafeB.C. will react until they are faced with another Grant DePatie incident – which this incident could have been. WorksafeB.C. stats show, consistently, security guards are ranked fourth highest when it comes to exposure to workplace violence – higher than police officers. And the security industry in B.C. is above the provincial average when it comes to injured workers requiring time-off.

The litany of examples of unsafe work conditions is endless and the risks are well known to employers, clients and the government, yet, nothing has been done or is even contemplated. At least, not until another security officer is killed on the job and maybe not even then. When this kind of activity is known to be taking place and has the potential to increase risks to security officers working alone, some kind of information must be passed on to security companies to heighten the awareness of their security workers. It can be done without compromising an investigation. Let’s call this a ‘near miss’ that requires an OHS incident investigation. Unfortunately, it will just be yet another security officer endangerment incident that gets swept under the carpet.

No mark up on B.C. natural gas costs To the Editor,

Re: Commission stamps out common rates, March 30. The article regarding the B.C. Utilities Commission’s decision denying Fortis B.C.’s application to implement common natural gas rates makes reference to the costs customers pay for natural gas in Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. However, the article does not clarify that the rate for Vancouver Island residents is a bundled rate that includes the cost of gas and delivery. The rate the article references for Lower Mainland customers reflects only the cost of gas charges. It is important to note that Fortis B.C. does not mark up the cost of gas and that our customers pay

what we pay for natural gas. Fortis B.C. is disappointed with the BCUC decision as we believe common rates would bring greater rate stability, simplicity, and efficiency. We will work to find ways to keep rates for all customers balanced and reasonable as we continue to provide service to our customers across B.C. Natural gas is still an economical fuel choice when compared with other sources like oil.

Island bridge idea won’t float here To the Editor,

Re: Floating bridge a solution, Letters, April 4.

Michael Mosdell’s letter to the editor, whilst, in theory, a solution to our abysmal and totally unacceptable way in which the ferry service in B.C. is expected to be accepted by the populace of residents who choose to live on an island off the mainland, has, with no disrespect, not been thought through with any nano-second of intelligence. Think about the weather problems, Mr. Mosdell.

Decision needed on Colliery’s dams To the Editor,

The City of Nanaimo needs to redraw the Harewood Neighbour-

hood Plan to include Colliery Dam Park. This vibrant green space/eco system – of which the lakes are a integral part – needs to be preserved. It is obvious that, for reasons not being explained, the Dam Safety Branch is imposing standards for these two 100-year-old structures that are far higher any other standards in the province. Nanaimo’s mayor and council have had more than enough time to examine the options. They know how the residents feel about this issue, so it’s time for them to act with a sense of purpose and put this matter to rest.

Muzzling scientists’ work an assault on a country’s democracy Access to information is a basic foundation of democracy. Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms also gives us “freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication.” We must protect these rights. As we alter the chemical, physical and biological properties of the biosphere, we face an increasingly uncertain future, and the best information

we have to guide us comes from science. That scientists – and even librarians – are speaking out against what appear to be increasing efforts to suppress information shows we have cause for concern. The situation has become so alarming that Canada’s Information Commissioner is investigating seven government departments in response to a complaint that they’re “muzzling” scientists.

The submission from the University of Victoria’s Environmental Law Centre and Democracy Watch alleges that “the federal government is preventing the media and the Canadian public from speaking to government scientists for news stories – especially when the scientists’ research or point of view runs counter to current government policies on matters such as environmental protection, oil

An Environment Canada document leaked to the Climate Action Network states, “Media coverage of climate change science, our most high-profile issue, has been reduced by over 80 per cent.” In the environmental movement, we’ve become accustomed to attacks and attempts by government and its proxies to silence us. We’ve been called everything from “radicals” to “unCanadian” to “moneylaunderers.” Federal Treasury Board president Tony Clement even blamed the David Suzuki Foundation and me for opposition to the proposed TransCanada west-to-east pipeline – a project we have yet to say a word about. Some of the ongoing media slurs have been even sillier. Are they that threatened by credible scientific research that might stand in the way of

their current liquidation policies? Canada is a large country with the longest coastline in the world, and is particularly sensitive to climate fluctuations, especially in economic sectors like agriculture, fisheries, forestry and tourism. We aspire to be an “energy superpower.” Surely, understanding the effects of climate change should be at the top of our agenda. In a truly open and democratic society, ideas, policies and legislation are exposed to scrutiny, debate and criticism. Information is shared freely. Governments support research that makes the country stronger by ensuring policies are in the best interests of the people. A government that values its citizens more than its industrial backers does not fear information and opposition. Countries where governments hold a tight rein on information, shut down or stifle research that runs counter to its priorities, and demonize and attack opponents are never good places to live. www.davidsuzuki.org

Deserved recognition

Nanaimo’s Grace Elliott-Nielsen, centre, receives a 2013 B.C. Community Achievement Award from Ida Chong, Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation, left, and B.C. Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon. Elliott-Nielsen was recognized for her more than 30 years of service to the aboriginal community.

Focus group helps stroke recovery A new focus group is geared to help stroke survivors and their caregivers on the road to recovery. The Community Stroke Recovery Navigator is a service provided by the Stroke Recovery Association of B.C. from Nanaimo to Campbell River, and organizers are looking for people who have had a stroke in the last five years and their caregivers. The Navigator will answer questions asked by caregivers and stroke survivors and link them to resources and programs to assist with their recovery. The

focus group helps set up this service. About 6,500 British Columbians will have a stroke this year. For those stroke survivors returning to their home after they leave hospital, and their family caregivers, the question most often asked is “Now what?” The focus group takes place April 17 from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the therapy services department at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. To register, please call 250-3391188 or e-mail vancouverislandsrabc@gmail.com.

Model railroad show pulls into station

I

ENTIRE FAMILY can learn different skills with hobby.

Most kids have a fascination with trains, large and small. Sometimes as adults we find that our inner child still enjoys trains, both large and small. To many, the hobby of model railroading fills that need to enjoy trains in miniature. Model railroading offers a range of fun and excitement. You will get to work with your hands, work with your mind, and have a great time exercising your imagination as

you express yourself through something uniquely your own. Some of the enjoyable activities that model railroaders choose from include carpentry, electronics, painting, model building, engineering, historical research, and more. It may be that dad has the love of trains, but the hobby can be shared with members of your family. Maybe mom has the artistic talent to paint the backdrop or build the scenery. The children will like to operate the trains or build some kits. If you build a layout based on a real railroad, there will be history research that the family can do together.

During construction the basic carpentry and wiring skills can be shared. There are a number of model railroaders on the Island, and on Sunday (April 14), a good majority of them will be at Beban Park social centre for the 29th annual Vancouver Island Spring Model Railroad Show. The event is open to the public and includes operating layouts in various scales, swap-n-shop tables, and information tables about the hobby for beginners. The show runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, please call 1-250-724-4698.

Women desperate to escape drudgery BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

A

group of 15 women are desperate to escape the poverty of their lives even if it means stepping on each other to do it. When Germaine wins a million trading stamps she believes it may be her ticket out of desperation and drudgery. “I’ve won a million stamps. It’s going to get me out of this. It’s my ticket out of this rotten life,” said Sherri McLean, who plays Germaine in Nanaimo Theatre Group’s upcoming production of Les Belles Soeurs. Germaine’s daughter Linda, played by Vanessa Jones, is trapped between the new upcoming women’s lib movement and tradition. She is drawn to her aunt who is the black sheep of the family. McLean said it’s been great to work with 14 other actresses onstage. “It’s women being allowed to have such a voice onstage and such a presence you don’t see very often,” added Jones. Nanaimo Theatre Group’s production of Les Belles Soeurs premieres at the Bailey studio Wednesday (April 17) at 8 p.m. The play, written by Michel Tremblay, is set prior to the women’s lib movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. At the time it was written as a contemporary play, but now has become a historic piece, said director Robb Mowbray. “It’s a look at my parent’s generation before this (the women’s lib movement) takes place,” said Mowbray. “Now we look at it more as a signpost in history.”

RACHEL STERN/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Vanessa Jones, left, who plays Linda in Nanaimo Theatre Group’s production of Les Belles Soeurs, doesn’t always agree with her mother, Germaine, played by Sherri McLean. The play premieres Wednesday (April 17) at Bailey Studio.

He said the women are from the lower working class and they are “desperate” to find something better. Jones said the show has themes of birth, love, and death that are still relevant today, with situations that every-

one goes through or is touched by. Less Belles Soeurs runs Wednesday to Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. April 17 to May 4 with matinees on April 21 and 28 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $16 for Wednesday, Thursday and matinee performances

and $18 for Friday and Saturday. Tickets and showtimes are available online at www.nanaimotheatregroup.com, or by calling 250-758-724 or e-mailing tickets@ nanaim otheatregroup.com. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Comedian Richard Harlow raising money to help restore his vision BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Richard Harlow began to lose vision in his right eye in the spring of 2010 and by Thanksgiving was legally blind on that side. By Christmas of that year he started losing sight in his left eye and by the spring of 2011 was legally blind in both eyes. Harlow has Leber’s Optic Neuropathy, a rare optic nerve disease. But his vision loss could be reversible. He is taking a drug treatment that has a high chance of restoring his vision. However, the treat-

ment is expensive, about $3,000 a month. To help with the costs Harlow is hosting Richard Harlow’s Fight for Sight Night at the Queen’s Saturday (April 13) 6-10 p.m. The fundraiser features performances by EJ Estes, Eric Harper, Johnny Inappropriate, Naughty and Spice Burlesque Troupe and The Hot Mamas Burlesque Troupe. It also features comedy performances by Harlow, Deanna Wood, Peter Hudson and Joey Bergey. “It has been pretty crazy actually,” said Harlow about the

support he’s receiving from the performance community. “I’ve had to start denying people to perform because we don’t have the time (available).” Harlow recently had the chance to open for Tom Green and was interviewed by the comedian on his YouTube channel. “It was a pretty amazing experience,” said Harlow. “It was quite an honour and he helped me out and spread awareness about my comedy.” Comedy has been a means of making people feel more at ease for Harlow.

“I’ve always kind of used comedy to break the ice with people,” he said. He creates jokes to show he isn’t afraid to talk about his disability and said that makes people seem more comfortable about talking about it. He uses comedy as a way to cheer people up as well as himself. “I feel it’s better to make people feel happy and think of the positive rather than go to depression,” said Harlow.

Helix Dance Theatre is collaborating with Ladysmith’s Ryan McMahon to create a fusion of sound and motion. The pre-professional dance company debuts Movement and Muse at the Malaspina Theatre Saturday (April 13). The performance has four pieces, including an opening improvisational piece danced to McMahon’s live performance. “We’ll be bringing art forms together. I’m happy to see it come to fruition,” said Sarah DeVito, artistic director and a founder of the company. McMahon said in an e-mail that he’s a fan of audio art. “To be able to be part of a fusion of both my music and dance of an exceptional calibre is seen as another opportunity to grow as an artist,” he said. Dancers in the performance range in ages from 11 to 22 years old and will dance a modern contemporary style. There are several pieces being performed including one created by the DeVito, called Do You Remember? “I’ve wanted to create a piece of work dedicated to my parents,” she said. “It’s a piece about Alzheimer’s and dementia, so that is a piece that comes from my heart.” There is also a performance about bullying. “We like to have the girls explore social issues in a context that is appropriate,” said DeVito. Movement and Muse starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15/$12 students available at Arbutus Music, calling 250-954-4194 or on the Helix Dance Facebook page. Tickets are $20 at the door.

Junior Timbermen work toward new season BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The junior Timbermen have a better idea, now, what it takes to win, and they know the process starts now. The Nanaimo Timbermen junior A lacrosse team held its training camp Saturday, Sunday and Monday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. “It’s looking good,” said Brad Dougan, the team’s coach. “The guys were out working hard.” The city’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League club is putting its pieces back together after a tough go of things last season. After talking Minto Cup last spring, the team won just three games, blew up the roster at the trade deadline and fired the entire coaching staff at year’s end. “Definitely the guys that are second years that were rookies last year, I think it was quite the eye-opener to some of them and a lot of them came to camp [this year] in very good shape,” said Dougan. He said the group also seems to be coachable, as he didn’t hear any complaints no matter how hard he pushed the pace. Dougan said the

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Mitch Parker runs the floor during a drill Sunday night at the Nanaimo Timbermen junior A lacrosse team’s training camp at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The season starts at the end of this month.

coaching staff is going to continue to demand a strong work ethic. “We’re trying to get guys to buy into that and pound that into them,” he said. Three guys who were traded away at the deadline last year – offensive players Mitch Parker and Corey Shires and goaltender Pete Dubenski – have all been returned to the Timbermen as the future considerations of those

transactions. All three were standouts at this past weekend’s training camp, and newcomer Brady Jorgensen, a left-side offensive player, also looks ready to contribute. “We’ve brought some guys in and our offence is definitely very talented. We’re not going to have a problem putting the ball in the net. And then we have, I think, one of the best goalies in the

Nanaimo News Bulletin B1

league,” said Dougan. “It’s just the defence we’re going to have to work on and that’s what I’ve got to do the next month before we get going in the season is implement a good defensive system that will work.” GAME ON … The team plays its first exhibition game on Wednesday (April 17) against the Victoria Shamrocks at Fuller Lake Arena in Chemainus. Game time is 8 p.m.

Quickfacts NANAIMO JUNIOR Timbermen open the season April 27 on the road in Coquitlam. FIRST HOME game is May 4 in Parksville, but the other nine home games will be in Nanaimo. SEASON TICKET information can be found at www. tmen.ca.

There aren’t usually do-overs in the playoffs, but the Nanaimo Clippers get one. The city’s junior A hockey club, bound f o r t h e We s t e r n Canada Cup in two weeks’ time, has decided to start anew with a spring camp. The team will return to the ice Friday (April 12), split into Team Black and Team Orange, and practise and scrimmage for three days of training-camp-style hockey. “We’re going to go right after it,” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers coach. “We’re going to work hard in our practices this weekend and then expect the guys to play full-out in our games and then dive back into it.” The current Clippers’ roster will be supplemented by affiliates, prospects and players committed for 2013-14. Vandekamp said it gives those players the chance to participate in a high-calibre spring camp. For the current Clippers, the

camp is a restart. “That was the whole idea behind it, was to create a mentality [of] restarting the engines,” Vandekamp said. The Clippers’ early playoff exit indicated that there’s room for improvement, and the team has to find that improvement from within. That means that players could potentially work their way up the depth chart at this weekend’s camp and the practices that follow. “From the goal net out we’re evaluating what our lineup needs to look like and what roles people need to play when that tournament starts,” said Vandekamp. ICE CHIPS … Due to ice-time constraints in Nanaimo at this time of year, the Clippers will have to utilize rinks in neighbouring cities. Friday’s practices are at Frank Crane Arena, but that day’s scrimmage is at 4 p.m. at the Island Savings Centre in Duncan. Saturday’s practices and 3 p.m. scrimmage are also in Duncan. On Sunday, camp moves to Parksville’s Oceanside Place, where the final scrimmage will be held at 3 p.m. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The VIBI Mariners will try for their first winning weekend. After zero wins the first series, one the next, and two last weekend, Nanaimo’s Vancouver Island Baseball Institute is going in the right direction. The ball club heads to Kamloops for games Saturday (April 13) and Sunday against the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack and the Okanagan Coyotes. VIBI manager Jordan Blundell said he wants to see more of what he saw in the team’s most recent games. The pitching was a huge positive, he said, and while the atbats are getting better, the M’s could still do a better job making the most of their at-bats. Guys need to “swing at the pitches we’re supposed to swing at and get ourselves into hitting counts and situations where we can be productive,” Blundell said. He said the M’s would also be going over their defensive fundamentals this week. As they continue to hone their game, there’s never a question of work ethic in practice, Blundell said. “The guys work hard so it’s frustrating sometimes to see that not pay off,” said the manager. “But then on the other hand you’ve got to overcome that and keep grinding, and the teams that do that find themselves in good situations at the end of the year.”

Notice To All Business and Residential Water Users An extensive water flushing program will be carried out on the Nanaimo water systems from March 4 to May 3, 2013. City of Nanaimo waterworks crews will be flushing water mains in the following areas: April 8 to April 12: the Metral Dr/ Aulds Rd/ Brannen Lake area, the North end of Hammond Bay Rd/ Applecross Rd./ Dover Rd/ Dickinson Rd, the Eagle Point/ McGirr Rd areas. April 15 to April 19: the Eagle Point/ Rocky Point areas, the Hammond Bay Rd area from Brickyard Rd in the west to Piper’s Lagoon in the east, Protection island, the Cinnabar Valley area, the Extension Rd/ Roberta Rd East and West areas.

This will conclude the flushing program for 2013. Spot flushing may be done throughout the year, as requested. These dates depend on the quality of water and the length of time required to remove accumulated silt. During the flushing period, commercial and residential users may experience some discoloration in water supplies. We recommend that you do laundry on weekends or evenings to avoid discoloration of clothes, etc. This discoloration will have no harmful effects on the health of the persons using the water.

WATER MAIN FLUSHING

May 27 ........................ Council Meeting

Customers with medical equipment requiring continuous water supply, and those who may be inconvenienced by reduced water pressure are requested to contact the Public Works Department. Please direct any questions you may have regarding this program to the office noted below.

Water main flushing is used to clean the distribution system water mains of sediments that have accumulated inside the pipe. The flushing program in the City of Nanaimo is conducted annually. This is one of the methods that the City of Nanaimo Public Works Water Operations Department uses to help keep the drinking water in the City of Nanaimo safe and clean.

Annual Water Main Flushing Annual water main flushing program starts in February with our water supply mains from South Forks dam. Between March and May crews flush the in-town water distribution mains starting in the Harewood-Old City Area then through town to finish flushing in the north end of Nanaimo and in Cinnabar Valley. While this program is underway, short periods of low pressure and discoloured water can be expected. Any discolouration is temporary and not a health hazard. Users are asked to minimize their water consumption if a change in water appearance is noticed. To clear your water lines, turn on your cold water tap until the water runs clear.

Advance Notification Specific area and dates of water distribution main flushing are published annually on the City Page in the local newspaper at the end of February. Businesses will receive advance warning of flushing in their area if a request to be notified is received. Call Public Works Water Operations to arrange for an advance warning or for additional information about water main flushing. Tel: 250 758-5222. CITY OF NANAIMO ACCEPTS NO LIABILITY FOR LOW WATER PRESSURE, INCONVENIENCE OR DAMAGES CAUSED DURING ITS FLUSHING PROGRAM.

Slo-pitch league filling its rosters

ADULT REC circuit holding registration.

With springtime comes a new softball season in the city. The Nanaimo Adult Recreational Slo-Pitch League gets underway next week in the north end. There are a lot of benefits to ball season. Most of all, said league president Hans Larsen, “it’s a great bunch of people to play with. “A lot of camaraderie, and just the outdoors, the physical exercise,” he said. “Sometimes re-living a little bit of your youth – you find that some of those skills are often still there.” Skill isn’t really required, though. The rule is that everybody plays and everybody takes at-bats.

“While we generally do keep score, at the end of the game that’s all forgotten and it’s just good fun and congratulations on the game,” Larsen said. The league is for women 45 and over and men 50 and over. Games are ever y Tuesday and Thursday morning at the McGirr Sports Fields from mid-April until the end of September. Registration is Tuesday (April 16) and April 18 at 9:30 a.m. at McGirr, with pickup games to follow on both days. Cost is $70 for the season, or $40 for players who wish to sign up to play just once a week. For more information, call Larsen at 250-390-2353 or past-president Dave Elmore at 250-7540716.

The camp starts with registration at 11 a.m. and goes until 4 p.m. Some of the topics covered are throwing mechanics, play action passing, throwing on the run, footwork and reading defences. Cost to register is $100 which includes a camp T-shirt. Players need to bring their own cleats, football and lunch. Walk-up registration is allowed, but Prepchuk would prefer advance notice by phone at 1-604-803-2473 or by e-mail at jprepchuk@nvsd44.bc.ca.

Lancer

RVR

Right now the hot model in Mitusbishi’s lineup is the RVR. Coming in second is the Lancer, especially the SE trim level with All Wheel Control (AWC). Its primary aim is to give those living in snowy climes a sure-footed chance when dealing with nasty winter conditions, or whenever or wherever extra traction is required. The SE AWC, which slots in between the DE and the GT trims, features a 168-horsepower 2.4litre four-cylinder engine that it shares with the GT. That’s a step up from the 148-horsepower 2.0-litre four-cylinder that moves the price-leader DE and regular front-drive SE. The SE AWC is only available with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the DE just gets the manual gearbox and the SE and GT can be had with either. Lancer can also be had as a Sportback (hatchback) but only fitted with the 2.0 engine with either a five-speed manual transmission or optional CVT. Atop the Lancer pyramid, the Ralliart and Evolution duke it out with their WRX and WRX STI competitors on the street and the world’s rally racing circuits. Both feature all-wheel-drive and

The RVR is similar to the Outlander wagon in style, but shorter by more than 35 centimetres. From stem to stern, the design is cohesive and clean cut. It also works well with the Lancer Evolution-style open-mouth nosepiece that Mitsubishi claims was inspired by jet-fighter air intakes, which as you might recall was a ’50s theme. Providing the thrust is a Lancer-based 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that makes 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is fitted to the base ES front-wheel-drive models, while a continuously variable (CVT) unit is standard in both the twoand all-wheel-drive SE versions, along with the new-for-2013 GT. Paddle shifters that control the six artificial steps (designed to emulate the more familiar operation of a conventional automatic transmission) are part of the CVT package. The RVR’s optional all-wheel-drive is controlled through a knob on the floor console. Under normal driving conditions, the vehicle remains in front-wheel-drive, but when tire slip is detected, up to 70

turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines. There’s “only” 237 horsepower to play with in the Ralliart, while the Evo spools out 291 barely bridled ponies.

Outlander

iMiev

The Outlander specializes in offering family-type transportation with room in back for stowing your youngsters, a large dog or two, plus related gear. For maximum passenger accommodations there’s an available third-row seat that folds flat for added cargo space. Front- and all-wheel-drive ES models employ the 168-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder rated at 9.0 l/100 km in the city and 7.0 highway. Although it’s bigger than your typical sedan, the Outlander drives much like a car, especially since its underpinnings have been borrowed from the Lancer. And top-end XLS might drive more like a Lancer Ralliart since the Outlander borrows the performance-oriented Super-All Wheel Control all-wheel drive system from its sporty cousin. Air conditioning, cruise control, keyless remote entry, six-speaker audio system and power windows, locks and mirrors are standard on each and every model. Available only on XLS models is a

The iMiev gets credit for not looking anything like a regular gasolineengine car. This bubble-bodied hatchback looks the way you would think an electric car should look, in a visually appealing sort of way. The iMiev is one of the smallest electrical offerings available for general consumption. As a short-haul urban commuter pod, it accommodates four adults as long as they’re packing light. But with only the front seats in use, cargo capacity with the 50:50 rear seat folded flat matches the space available in the larger Nissan Leaf. The iMiev’s top speed is set at 130 km/h, but driving at that velocity for any length of time will quickly sap its 330-volt lithium-ion battery pack positioned beneath the passenger floor. The system flows power to the 49-kilowatt (66-horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque) electric motor. The iMiev’s range at about 135 kilometres per charge, close to the 160 kilometres claimed by the Leaf and other electrics. Piloting the iMiev involves shifting the single-speed controller to one of three operating modes: “D” for optimum performance; “Eco” for maxi-

Volvo sends new sports wagon overseas Already a superstar in Europe, Volvo’s V60 sports wagon will soon hit the shores of North America. The new V60 will come in early 2014. Pricing and specifications for the U.S. and Canada will be announced at a later date. The V60 R-Design on the auto show

stand marks the global debut of the R-Design version of the car. It projects an elegant, curvy and sculptured appearance that equally straddles luxury and performance. “The V60 marks a beautiful evolution in design and direction for Volvo,” said Marc Engelen, president

and CEO of Volvo Cars of Canada. “Many Canadian consumers have been asking us to bring this exciting sports wagon.” According to the automaker, the new Volvo V60 combines the handling of a dynamic sports sedan with the versatility of a wagon.

With increased room, more premium features and improved driving dynamics, the all-new Soul is more funky and functional than ever.

Autobahn for All

New-look Soul maintains edge

Sales Event

The all-new 2014 Soul urban utility vehicle debuted at the recent New York International Auto Show with more than a passing nod to the cutting-edge Track’ster concept that was unveiled last year. Riding on a new chassis that is stiffer, longer and wider, the all-new Soul has grown up without losing its edge, allowing for more passenger and cargo room while reducing noise vibration harshness levels. Increased torque and significant suspension upgrades make the 2014 Soul a nimble and agile companion in congested urban environments. Pricing will be announced closer to the Soul’s launch date in the third quarter of this year. The redesign of the Soul was boiled down to three focus areas: maintaining the design while adding modern cues; providing premium features and content; and improving driving dynamics. Premium touches such as available LED front positioning lights and rear LED lights help connect Soul to siblings within the Kia lineup that share similar design cues, such the as the 2014 Sorento and 2014 Forte sedan.

Escape sport ute gets Titanium treatment

I

FORD CROSSOVER puts its trucky past in the rear-view mirror.

BY JIM ROBINSON Since 2001 when it debuted, the Ford Escape was the top selling compact SUV, picking up on the winning formula begat by the original Explorer. Times have changed and truck-based compact SUVs have been swamped by a deluge of car-based crossovers, or CUVs, available today in seemingly every price range. Ford already has the Edge CUV, but the company realized that not only was the brand name Escape golden but consumers might also want something a little smaller and using less fuel. Not that the Edge is all that much bigger at about six inches longer with 45 more horses from a 3.5-litre V6, but the Escape is also significantly lighter. Passenger volume is not much different. When I picked up the Escape I honestly thought it was a midsize CUV when I looked at it. It’s all part of the trend of cars and trucks growing in size. But as they get bigger, the cost of operation is decreasing at the same time, resulting in the consumer getting more for less. Thus we have the truly all-new Escape for 2013 that shares literally nothing with the outgoing model except an engine on the base model and the Ford badge on the grille. While there is one transmission, a six-speed automatic with sequential manual shift, there

are no less than three engines starting with (as noted) a 2.5L inline four-cylinder on the base S producing 168 horsepower. The S is only sold in frontwheel-drive. The SE features the 1.6L EcoBoost inline four-cylinder engine making 178hp in either FWD or all-wheel-drive. EcoBoost is Ford’s use of turbocharging and leading-edge technology such as variable valve timing and direct fuel injection for reduced fuel consumption but with the power of

a larger displacement normally aspirated engine. On the SEL and Titanium (as tested) the EcoBoost four-cylinder is a 2.0L unit with 240hp. The SEL is available in FWD and AWD while the Titanium is fitted with AWD only. In terms of fuel consumption, the Titanium in FWD format gets 9.5L per 100 kilometres in the city and 6.7L/100km on thehighway. Although the engine may be small in terms of size, EcoBoost gives it the equivalent power of

a V6, thus the tow rating in up to 1,588 kilograms. In terms of cargo volume, there are 971L behind the second row split/fold rear seat and 1,920L behind the front seats. Tested here is the top-of-theline Titanium which leaves no Ford option unplumbed. The tester came with the MyFord Touch infotainment system with satellite radio and navigation that is an optional part of the Ford Sync suite of driver/passenger aids. While it does all the things

you’d expect from a navi/sound/ info system, it also recognizes thousands of voice commands. For instance, you can tell it to change the radio station, get someone on the phone, or set the climate control. Another option was the parking technology package, again with things you might expect such as blind-spot detection and rear backup camera. But it also includes the auto park system which does just that. Pull up to a parallel parking spot and activate the system and it sizes the space up, and if big enough, works the steering and brakes to tuck you in. Lastly on the amenities side, I think the sensor under the rear bumper that detects when you swipe your foot beneath it and automatically opens the rear liftgate is pure genius. I covered close to 600km in the Escape on mostly major highways, but there were a lot of back roads as well. Ford’s stability/traction control system comes with curve control that can slow you down as much as 16km/h in one second if it senses you are entering a bend going too fast. As for the AWD system fitted, I couldn’t tell you when and where grip was going because it is that seamless. Considering all the amenities, the price is highly attractive compared to some of the import luxury compact CUVs and I would definitely include the Titanium in the luxury class. I could never have said that about the previous generation Escape, but it shows how Ford, despite being more than a century old, has not let itself lag.

Chevrolet introduced the restyled 2014 Camaro line at the New York Auto Show, including the return of the Z/28, the most iconic model in Camaro history. The 2014 models feature a revised exterior design that integrates high-performance aerodynamics for more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds. The new Camaro Z/28 also features a full aerodynamics package that creates downforce at speed, which helps make it the most trackcapable offering in Camaro’s history. While the muscle car is not intended to compete in a specific race series, it is solely focused on track capability. In initial testing, the Z/28 is three seconds faster per lap than the Camaro ZL1. That extra speed comes from three areas:  u Increased grip: The Z/28 is capable of 1.05 g in cornering acceleration, due to comprehensive chassis revisions u Increased stopping power: the Z/28 features Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes capable of 1.5 g in deceleration, and consistent brake feel, lap after lap u Reduced curb weight: The naturally aspirated Z/28 weighs 136 kilograms less than the supercharged ZL1, with changes ranging from lightweight wheels to thinner rear-window glass Like the original, the Z/28 is offered only with a manual transmission.

A spring bouquet to the gentlemen at Craftsman Collision on Dickinson Road, who polished out the scratches sustained by my truck and did it all for free. What great neighbours. You turned my day around in an instant. I will recommend you to my friends. tributes to the four golden musicians – Hayley, Karolina, Rhys and Ian. It is wonderful to hear about the successes of our young people. A bouquet to Diver Lake Dental staff for taking such good care of me. You guys rock. A bouquet of grAtefulness to people who follow the rules of the road when driving, such as using the left-hand lane to pass and not just sit and travel in and using signal lights. I wish there were more of you. sending flowers of the nicest kind to our neighbour Gerold who cleaned our driveway with his power washer so that it positively gleams. He almost sterilized it – such a huge difference from what it looked like until Easter. Kudos to a fantastic neighbour.

A bouquet to all those patient, 24/7 technical support angels at Shaw. Thank you for being so understanding when we, the technologically challenged and frustrated public, phone you at all hours for assistance. A bouquet of expensive pAint brushes to Michelle and Paul of Sloan’s Painting for doing an excellent job in our home. They take pride in their work.

Beefs

A lArge bouquet of roses to Marie from the Brooks Landing Home Hardware. I forgot my debit card at home, but had cash, only I was a dollar short. She paid the difference. What a gem. A huge bouquet of spring flowers to the lady with two children who gave me a ride from Nanaimo District Secondary School to my condo, as I had lost my car keys. The latest racing car to Pierre for giving me a ride back to NDSS. A shining bouquet to A Touch Above Auto and Marine Detailing and Micro Autobody, a division of Nanaimo Toyota Scion, for a job well done. thAnks to all the people who stop to say hi or honk their horns.

Nanaimo News Bulletin B15

A beef to a Nanaimo store that sold me a continuing product only to close its doors indefinitely the following week. I asked if the store was closing and was told no. A beef to a salesman for verbally abusing me while I was holding my infant child. Your language and behaviour were absolutely horrific. No mother should be subject to such abuse when they are simply seeking clarification on a potential purchase, let alone when they have a child with them. A beef to the driver who took up two parking spaces when parking on Applecross Road near the ICBC offices. Please be more considerate of others who need to park there.

bouquets A bouquet. Women dread mammograms, but technician Marge is so sweet. She puts you at ease. What more could we want? Just a negative result. Thanks, Marge, for being you. A long overdue bouquet to Chris Sarauer and Co. Fine Cabinetry for all the great work they have done fixing my home up. The renovations are perfect and the vinyl planking is just great. My husband can get his wheelchair around much better now. The back stairs down to my lower deck are a big help as I am not afraid to go up and down anymore. A bouquet in remembrAnce. The Nanaimo Disability Resource Centre staff, volunteers and board of directors want to express our sadness over the passing of Brenda Currant. Brenda had worked for the centre since 1996 and was a loyal representative of the centre and its philosophy to promote independence for people living with disabilities. We want to recognize the important contribution that our friend and colleague made to our organization and extend our sincere sympathy to her family. A bright bouquet to the nice lady in front of me at Wal-Mart who allowed me to go ahead of her. It was appreciated – I was in a hurry to pick my son up from pre-school.

A beef to the person who scratched my truck on April Fool’s Day. It wasn’t funny. Learn to drive. A dozen beefs to the group of seniors seated front and centre at a matinee show at the Port Theatre for their display of rudeness – standing, donning coats and exiting while the orchestra played and the cast took individual bows. This is an example of bad manners. The whole cast was truly deserving of our applause. A beef to people who don’t think it’s necessary to tip at restaurants when you phone in a take-out order. A lot of energy and care goes into making your food delicious and your order perfect. A little gratitude is greatly appreciated. A big Attitude beef to customers who think they can treat retail clerks with absolutely no respect, yet expect clerks to serve them with a big smile and respect, as well as putting up with their crappy attitude. You should get as much respect from those clerks as you are willing to give. A beef to the beef about oral presentations. If we let teens avoid learning important life skills just because they are concerned about their looks or being marked on their poorly prepared work, we better just shut down the high school program altogether.

A beef to the people I saw picking wildflowers growing in a public park. Leave the flowers in the ground, where all of us can enjoy them and where they stand a chance of reseeding themselves so that they grow again another year. A beef to the dog owners who still run their dogs in Mansfield Park, which is a no-dogs-allowed park. Maybe a few $150 fines would get their attention. A beef to computer companies. Just when you think you have something figured out, all of the companies come out with updates and newer models and you are starting from scratch again. A beef to a local restaurant. I will not eat there after seeing all of the garbage on the side of the building. That is not a good sign. A beef to the guy who went into the mall with mud all over his clothes. What if someone wearing a clean, white collared shirt had accidentally brushed against you? Have some consideration. A sAd beef to a dog owner in Nanaimo’s south end. Your dog howls and cries for hours. Please bring him inside the house. If I knew where you lived, I would phone the SPCA. Please neighbours, call it in.

A huge bouquet of smiles for the driver of the No. 1 Woodgrove bus, who went above and beyond the call of duty recently. Thanks to him I was able to recover my son’s orthodontic equipment that I had absent-mindedly left on the bus. Our drivers are some of the best – I am constantly witnessing their small acts of kindness to passengers and many times I have watched them deal with stressful situations with humour and grace.

After the RCMP, Ken worked at Cyber City, then for Sharecost Rentals where he made many new friends. There werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t many garage sales that Ken did not attend. Friends and family would always ask Ken if he had an extra â&#x20AC;&#x153;something or otherâ&#x20AC;? and he usually dug around and came up with what they were looking for. He had a passion for spending time fixing things for family and friends, no request was ever denied; he stepped up to the challenge. There was never a kinder and gentler soul than Ken. He will be sorely missed by his family and his multitude of friends. Our time was too short. Ken and family thank Dr. Colin Walker for his unwavering time that he spent with us; as well as staff at PCU. A great big thank you to our friends and neighbours for their support during this trying time. A Celebration of Kenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held at the East Wellington Legion on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation.

Happy 50th Anniversary

Len & Johanne Kropielinski Married April 15, 1963 St. Paul’s Church, Nanaimo, B.C.

April 2, 1926 – March 30, 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

With great sadness we announce the passing of Marg with her loving family by her side, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Born in Glasgow, Scotland on April 2, 1926, Marg moved to Canada as a war bride after WWII and was a long-time resident of Nanaimo. She passed away peacefully on March 30th, 2013. Marg is survived by Walter, her loving husband of 67 years. She is also survived by children, Alf and Sandra (Hugh) McCormick; grandchildren: Deanna McCormick, Jody (Jack) Chaston, and Rory (Michelle) McCormick; great-grandchildren: Kyden McCormick, Casydee McCormick, Northrup Rainey, and Julie, Tyler, Rachel, and Alayna McCormick. Marg is also survived by nieces and nephews in Scotland, Alistair (Sheila) Ritchie, Stewart (Stephanie) Ritichie, Amy (Allan) McCabe, Ian (Pam) Ritchie, and Elizabeth (Richard) Ritchie. She is survived by nieces and nephews in Canada, Kathy (Cliff) Green, Bill (Eve) Smith, Darlene Dory, Karen (Glen) Lawrence, Michelle (Wayne) Hollman, Roger and Dennis Smith, and numerous great-great nieces and nephews.
