Upheaval at clinic worrying seniors Clinic doctors quitting in contract dispute with health authority Daniel Palmer News staff

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Margaret Bohlken and husband, Cas, outside the Health Point Care Centre on Hillside Avenue, are working to save the clinic with the imminent departure of its four doctors.

When Margaret Bohlken moved to Victoria eight years ago, one of her first concerns was finding a family doctor. She had been going to the same North Vancouver clinic for 38 years for her increasingly complex health problems before moving to the Island, but had no idea her search for a willing physician would span three-and-a-half years. “I was turned down 13 times,” said Bohlken, now 75. “Finally, someone told me about Health Point clinic.” Vancouver Island Health Authority established Health Point Care Centre in 2004 for senior patients with complicated medical conditions who did not have a family doctor. The clinic’s client list now boasts more than 1,800 patients and has a wait list, a marker of its need and success. But many patients worry their level of care could decline after the four parttime doctors who run the clinic told

VIHA they were quitting over a contract dispute with the health authority. Patient Stephen Gracey, 74, worries Health Point will soon turn into another walk-in clinic. “It may be (better than) other clinics, but I don’t know what doctors are going to want to work there if the current doctors are leaving for very good reasons,” he said. The physicians disagree with VIHA on the amount they should pay to operate the clinic and the number of patients they see. “Our departure is due to an inability to reach an agreement with VIHA regarding our provision of services at the clinic,” reads a Feb. 27 letter from the doctors to their patients. The clinic also employs three medical office administrators, two registered nurses and a nurse practitioner who are subsidized by VIHA, said health authority spokeswoman Sarah Plank. “When Health Point was founded … the physicians were paid on a contract, rather than fee-for-service, and significant resources were put in place to support them,” Plank said.

Victoria’s homeless in spotlight just in time for B.C. election Survey shows majority believe government should do more to provide access to affordable housing Daniel Palmer News staff

Greater Victoria residents want action on homelessness and the government needs to deliver. That’s the message the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Home-

lessness wants provincial politicians to hear as they move into campaign mode. “The community awareness is there,” said Andrew Wynn-Williams, coalition executive director. On Wednesday, Wynn-Williams released survey results showing

84 per cent of Capital Region residents believe affordable housing is the responsibility of government. More promisingly, nearly 60 per cent of people believe homelessness can be ended. The survey, completed by R.A. Malatest and Associates, was con-

ducted before the coalition rolled out its “Unacceptable” homelessness campaign in February. “We need to take the results back to whoever gets elected and say you have both the mandate and responsibility to act,” WynnWilliams said.

More than 1,600 people used a Greater Victoria shelter in 2011, according to the coalition’s most recent numbers.

selves that we’re all part of one greater community,” he says. “We have a responsibility, as all community members do, to ensure we have the best (services) that we, as taxpayers, can obtain for our region.” Gloria McCluskey, the former mayor of Dartmouth who was in power when Halifax amalgamation was forced upon the region in 1996, says the areas that aren’t urbanized tend to get lost in the shuffle amid regional governance. She fears the same thing would happen in the CRD. “If (Greater) Victoria does this, (the City of) Victoria will be the benefactor. The rest might as well hang up their closed signs,” she says. In Halifax, McCluskey points to a loss in basic such services as road and sidewalk repairs (money from the regional pot instead went elsewhere, as opposed to Dartmouth), and invasive species removal at Dartmouth parks as some of the most glaring impacts of amalgamation. “Were there any positives in amalgamation? I can’t say yes,” McCluskey says.

It’s the same story for Whitehouse in Highlands, who says she sees benefits in finding service efficiencies, but doesn’t see how political amalgamation would be for the greater good. “When communities are too large, you don’t have the sense of belonging, ownership or being responsible for them anymore,” she said. “I get a sense of ownership of the community, not just belonging to the community. I therefore feel that whatever happens with it, I have a piece in that. And I say that not because I attend council meetings, but because I express my opinions

on the issues that come up and affect my community.” Leonard says he strives to find efficiencies wherever he can, but amalgamation – as he sees it – wouldn’t be a financial benefit to Saanich residents. Personally, too, as mayor he can’t look at amalgamation with an impartial view. “I’ve come into this municipal hall for 27 years in which every meeting I’m working to try to make Saanich an even better place to live,” he says. “I don’t know if I could objectively engage in discussion for ways to try and do away with the municipality.” kslavin@saanichnews.com

What’s in a name? There is little difference between a city, town or a district today. The reason Saanich is classified as a district, as opposed to a village, and Esquimalt is a township, not a city, stems from population and area at the time of incorporation. In general: ■ A village is less than 2,500 residents ■ A town is 2,500 to 5,000 residents ■ A city is more than 5,000 residents ■ A district can have any population, but if the area is greater than 800 hectares with a population density of less than 5 people per hectare, it’s classified as a district ■ Township is a historic classification but is synonymous with district

It doesn’t have the notoriety of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, nor does it come with the controversy of Victoria’s Johnson Street Bridge. But it’s expected the 110-metre-long, 80-year-old Craigflower Bridge will be missed when it’s gone – at least for the time being. Just before 5 a.m. on Wednesday, the last vehicle crossed the old span, as it was permanently closed to mark the start of an eight-month replacement project. Cranes arrived to start the process of building a work bridge on the west side of the existing structure. Tillicum Road is expected to bear the brunt of the traffic diverted from the closure. Hemstock says a number of traffic lights on both sides of the Gorge will be reprogrammed to help ease congestion. “No matter how you go about it everyone will be delayed,” said Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard. Though all the details haven’t been hammered out, Jim Hemstock, Saanich’s manager of capital works, says a

Barriers set up on Wednesday at one end of Craigflower Bridge block vehicles from accessing the bridge, as work begins on an eight-month replacement project. Pedestrians and cyclists can still use the bridge for now. temporary pedestrian bridge is expected to be built coming off the work bridge. Walkers and cyclists will still have access to the old bridge’s east sidewalk for the next few weeks. As for the construction, Hemstock points to a tight schedule and a tight worksite as the biggest challenges for crews. “We have our approvals from (the Department of) Fisheries and Oceans to work in the water

as of April 15, but we have to be out of the water Sept. 15 before the salmon show up,” he said. “Challenge No. 2 is the steel delivery. It’s a big bridge with quite deep girders and it requires large machines to bend them. There’s not a lot of room there.” The old, timber-beam bridge will be deconstructed over a period of weeks, as opposed to a quick demolition.

The bridge will be replaced by a three-lane steel bridge. Construction is scheduled to be complete on Dec. 1, 2013. Of the project’s $13.2 million price tag, Saanich and View Royal have received $11.05 million in grants to pay for the replacement. The two municipalities will share the outstanding cost of the build. – with files from Charla Huber kslavin@saanichnews.com

Annual marine garage sale attracts boaters, collectors Annual event a fundraiser for Maritime Museum of B.C. Ben Gawletz News intern

It’s time to open up the hatches and bring anything seaworthy to sell at the Maritime Museum of B.C.’s annual Massive Marine Garage Sale. Volunteer and sale co-ordinator Ann Jones is excited to see what vendors bring in April 20 for this year’s 10th annual museum fundraiser. “Sailboats on trailers, dinghies, kayaks, engines – anything to do with boating,” she said. “We even get cutlery and china.” While the sale’s primary goal is to raise money for the Maritime Museum, it has become something of a “staple in the boaters’ world,” Jones said. In past years, the garage sale has brought in amounts as large as $12,000 for the museum to use for programming, exhibits, maintenance and a variety of other projects. Upwards of 800 people come

the most interesting items Jones has seen in recent years is a boat called a ‘Pixie,’ which was donated to the museum for this year’s event. The small rowboats were made in the 1950’s in England and came with two paddles and removable seats and also come apart in the middle to store on deck. At just over three meters long the boat is extremely lightweight and manageable. The Pixie will probably be sold in a silent auction due to its rarity, Jones said.

A man sleeps in an alcove off Courtenay Street in downtown Victoria, partially hidden from view by a shopping cart packed with his posessions. A study commissioned by the Coalition to End Homelessness found most respondents favoured using government funding to create housing to get homeless individuals off the street.

City loses out on federal funding Continued from Page A1 While B.C. Housing has been making gains to increase housing options, the Capital Region is losing out on federal funding compared to other Canadian cities, Wynn-Williams said. “The federal government has just announced they’re extending the homelessness partnership strategy, but Victoria will only get about $1.8 million over the next three years.” The cash works out to about $4.50 per person, while Vancouver’s funding equals about $9 per person, he said. Victoria isn’t getting adequate funding because of an “arcane” formula that distributes cash based on city size, not region size, said Murray Rankin, Victoria MP. “We have 78,000 Victorians, and that’s how the money is allocated,” he said. “We don’t get

our fair share.” Wynn-Williams said he’d like to see the federal government distribute funding based on census metropolitan areas, which accounts for the population of the Capital Region. The survey also asked residents what they believe are the primary causes of homelessness. Most respondents answered mental health issues and alcohol and addiction abuse.

“Those are risk factors, but the cause of homelessness is the environment we put those people into,” Wynn-Williams said. High rent combined with low vacancy rates means people on income assistance, for example, are still at risk for homelessness, despite receiving some support, he added. For full results of the survey, visit victoriahomelessness.ca. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Patient rally planned outside clinic Continued from Page A1 The clinic switched to a feefor-service model in 2010, leaving doctors responsible for overhead costs such as rent, utilities and staff. “After two years, the wait times remain, the number of patients hasn’t changed much, and the income from the number of patients being cared for doesn’t meet even the lowered expectations for overhead. Efforts to remedy the situation have been unsuccessful,” Plank said. Cal Tant, who manages Health

Point for VIHA, said he’s doing everything he can to ensure a smooth transition and to recruit new doctors in the coming months. The clinic will retain all its services, he said, but “it all comes down to what’s reasonable to pay … The bottom line is that the physicians are in a fee-forservice practice.” Tant said he’s spoken with more than 100 patients to assure them their level of care will remain the same. However, Bohlken said it will be hard to replace doctors with such a keen understanding of

seniors’ care. “It’s such an oasis,” she said. “Of course you want to have faith in a new doctor, but as you get older, there’s a trust and continuity that builds up with your caregiver.” dpalmer@vicnews.com

Rubble on the border A former apartment and office building owned by Abstract Development Inc. lies in a pile of rubble at the corner of Oak Bay Avenue and Foul Bay Road, right on the Victoria-Oak Bay municipal border. The building, which also previously housed Abstract’s offices, was torn down to make room for a four-storey, mixed-use building to be named Village Walk. The project, designed by architect Franc D’Ambrosio, will contain 22 condominium residences plus retail and office space. Completion of the building is estimated for fall 2014.

OUR VIEW

Housing issue election fodder People working with Greater Victoria’s street population have said for years that having a roof over a person’s head is the first and best hand up toward a healthier life. That message is clearly getting through, as the results of a Coalition to End Homelessness survey of area residents show. A vast majority of respondents agreed that more affordable housing would reduce homelessness, but also agreed that government is in the best position to ensure access to such housing. Experience has shown that housing people can save money in the long run, as opposed to covering the health and policing costs associated with a larger street population. And Greater Victoria is chipping away at its homelessness problem by creating housing affordable at every level. That said, the Coalition’s decision to release their survey results on the eve of the 2013 provincial election campaign was a good way to place the ongoing problem onto the front burner for candidates. With few specific local issues having yet emerged, other than the general dissatisfaction of some with government, hearing MLA hopefuls of all political stripes talk about how they might fight homelessness could help make the campaign a little more interesting. The issue of homelessness is by no means specific to Greater Victoria, but there is a definite history to how the Liberal government has approached the problem. In the early 2000s the province did little to provide incentives or funding to help belowmarket rate housing projects get built in our region, claiming the financial responsibility lay with federal or local governments. Local jurisdictions and private developers became tired of waiting for funding from upper levels of government, rolled up their sleeves and found ways to get people off the streets and housed. The province, through B.C. Housing, has gradually loosened the purse strings and provided funding to ease the burden on local governments and developers. We look forward to more of that kind of co-operation happening, regardless of who forms the next B.C. government. What do you think?

Certainly I would never change my vote because I saw one politician endorse another one. It reminds me of all the “elites” who endorsed the Charlottetown Accord, but the voters ignored them and defeated it. So what do you think?

Letters to the Editor

Energy has become different crisis Re: Many benefits to Kitimat proposal (Column, April 5) I understand David Black’s zeal in making this project happen. He must be pleased to have a proponent like Jim Shepard, the old oil man, to grease the wheels toward public support and opinion. But really, where is the editorial on the other option, no oil or gas export at all? Canada has been on the leading edge on new-world technologies and spaceage developments and had scientists who went off into other parts of this planet to make good. Why must Canada now become a resource leader in providing that

crude black stuff or its cracked-up derivative,  contributing internationally as one of the absolute sources of that other gas that is causing global warming? Hasn’t anyone contributed an honest effort in promoting the other energy solution: hydrogen? In the name of national interest, have our politicians and lobbyists just buried the info when they get it? No enterprising journalist has to look far to find it. Just ask soldiers returning from a tour of duty in the hot eastern deserts. They’ll tell you about the Hummer vehicles being recalled, then returning with hydrogen carburetors installed. Hydrogen burns clean

and cool, doesn’t overheat engines and only produces water for exhaust. From what research says, hydrogen can be separated from water with the existing charging system in any vehicle. A pump and pressure storage tank can be installed, similar to a propane tank, and then a carburetor for the hydrogen, similar to fuel injection. People can keep whatever car they have and burn hydrogen instead. The technology exists and it must scare the hell out of those old oil boys. Do you think they might try to suppress this info; debunk it and kill it like the electric car? Colin MacLock Esquimalt

Rider hopes cyclists see the light in time Re: Time to crack down on irresponsible cyclists (Letters, April 5) As a cyclist who shines brighter than a Christmas tree when I ride in darker conditions, I appreciate Mr. McMillan’s concerns regarding cyclists’ safety. As he mentions, it is the few who insist on breaking the law that ruin it for the many, just as it is with motorists who continually break the laws that govern traffic. Speeders, tailgaters, those who run yellow or red lights, or continue to drink and drive,

those who still text and talk on hand-held devices – the list goes on, and yes, the few reflect poorly on the many. Education and respect would seem the best solutions to such problems. More enforcement might be useful for cyclists and motorists as well. Unfortunately, police resources are already spread very thin and there seems to be little appetite for higher taxes to increase enforcement. Suggesting that cyclists lose their bikes for six months when stopped for no light

seems a bit harsh. You can be stopped for drinking and driving and receive a slap on the wrist, with as little as a 24-hour roadside suspension. Cyclists never win in a confrontation with a vehicle. But drunk drivers kill. Let’s make the punishment commensurate with the crime. We will never change some people’s irresponsible actions, but hopefully those cyclists who continue to ride darkly in the dark see the light before they end up dead. Wayne Clayton Colwood

Capital Region amalgamation continues to be a hot topic What you’re saying at VICNEWS.COM Laurie McGuire: I don’t see any drawbacks, quite the opposite. We would have less bureaucracy to pay for (which also translates to a smaller group of politicians which would also mean more accountability), a broader tax base (means less property tax to pay). There would be no loss of quality of life, less favouritism on urban or rural areas. Eric Eder: The biggest drawback would

The situation can’t be addressed soon enough.

to have all this duplication in such a tiny region. It should be one urban area, as it already is. Same for Metro Vancouver.

Tim Schindel: I don’t think the 13 municipalities with 13 planning A REGION departments, 13 administrations, five police forces, 13 fire departments, 13 public works departments can take much credit for the wonderful place in which we live. That’s a matter of geography Rudy Gruter: The naysayers are just trying to hang onto their own little and climate. Amalgamation would make living in this beautiful part of the world kingdoms (and seeing who some of them much cheaper. If we elminated the cost of are, it doesn’t surprise me). It is foolish

operating nine city halls (because three or four regional local governments makes more sense than one metro Victoria) the annual savings to the taxpayer would be signficant. Add nine city halls that could be sold on the free market. That money could go into infrastructure and the tax savings into further improvements. Stephen Green: The first step is to abolish the Capital Regional District! The second step is to leave the current local governments in place. Amalgamation, as demonstrated by Toronto and others, is a total disaster.

Another ‘grey tsunami’ beginning to rise First generation of developmentally disabled adults reach senior years Edward Hill News staff

With The Beatles piped into her headphones and a paintbrush in hand, 52-year-old Cindy Walsh dabs watercolours onto her latest work in the Garth Homer Centre. Behind her, Dolores Wilkinson, 79, peruses a book of funny animals with community services worker Alison Webb. Standard morning activities for the day centre for adults with developmental disabilities. Only a few decades ago Wilkinson and Walsh would have been a rare breed – the life expectancy of people with Down syndrome and other cognitive impairments was considerably lower than the general population. But they are members of the

first cohort in history of developmentally disabled adults reaching their senior years in large numbers, a phenomenon that is forcing the provincial government to rethink how it cares for a population that is aging and intensely vulnerable. “Now we are into the first generation of people with developmental disabilities who are getting old,” says Mitchell Temkin, CEO of the Garth Homer Society. “We believe community inclusion and acceptance has helped life span increase. It’s a baby boomer generation … and there’s lots of them.” The Garth Homer Centre, for one, is trying to take a leadership role in how service providers adjust to the wave of aging adults that is yet to be accounted for through government funding. Now with 30-plus clients aged 50 to 80 in day programs, last May the centre hired Phemie Guttin, a registered nurse, as its first director of geriatric services. “I suspect the number of (senior) clients will grow quickly,”

Edward Hill/News staff

Dolores Wilkinson, 79, and community services worker Alison Webb read a book of animals at Garth Homer Centre in Saanich. Guttin says. “This is happening in a lot of sites. We never had a significant number before, it wasn’t on the radar.” As they age, cognitively disabled people become frail, medical costs go up and some, especially people with Down syndrome, get early onset dementia. As clients age, Garth Homer staff, caregivers and the facility

will need training on caring for the elderly and the infrastructure to match, but it’s not clear where the money will come from. Temkin says developmentally disabled people reaching old age has presented a quandary for government – agencies like Garth Homer are funded to deal with disabilities, not geriatrics, while the health-care system doesn’t

Tara Murley clearly recalls the first terrifying time her daughter had a seizure. The family was returning from holidays in Cowichan Lake, driving over the Malahat when older daughter Emily-Jane told her parents something was wrong with seven-year-old Jessie-Ann. The distraught moments, dialing 9-1-1 and getting her to the hospital, were just the beginning. “It took a couple of days before they were able to diagnose what was going on,” Tara said. The multiple scans, electrodes and bloodwork revealed epilepsy. “She took it all in stride, it was obviously most difficult the first couple of years because it takes a while to figure out the right medication.” Now 18, Jessie-Ann is working toward her June graduation from Spectrum community school. She decided two years ago to take control of what she could – opting to share her ordeal. “It’s who I am,” Jessie-Ann said. “Being young and having something like that I thought people would judge me, but you can’t change it.” She bears two tattoos related to n Victoria Epilepsy her disorder. One and Parkinson’s Centre reads: “I believe in www.vepc.bc.ca miracles,” the other: n E-Action, Taking “I am not what has action against epilepsy happened to me, I www.e-action.ca am what I choose to n Epilepsy Canada become.” www.epilepsy.ca Now a spokesperson for E-Action, dedicated to taking action against epilepsy, she’s putting herself forward for the cause. “When I was first diagnosed I didn’t know who to talk to,” she said. “I can show people it’s not as scary. Not all epileptics get to be as lucky as I am.” More than 300,000 Canadians battle epilepsy while another 15,000 are diagnosed with the neurological condition each year. “Unfortunately, it is still the stigma of epilepsy that makes it so difficult for people, whatever their age,” said Barbara Gilmore, executive director at Victoria Epilepsy and Parkinson’s Centre. “Learning first aid for seizures is important. Learning that a person should not be identified by a medical condition, but by their personality,

Perhaps a quarter of disabled people in B.C. are cared for by their parents at home, but those parents, too, are part of the grey wave of retiring baby boomers. “It’s a big problem and there is a policy vacuum,” Temkin says. “When the system was created, nobody thought about people getting old.” Community Living B.C. (CLBC), the Crown agency which provides funds and services for people with developmental disabilities, is projecting it will see 300 clients each year for the next four years reach age 55 and older, adding to the thousands that exist now. “The demographic is changing and there is need for a support and a funding model that isn’t there,” Temkin says. “It will take years to sort out (provincial funding), in the meantime people don’t stop getting old while the government figures out priorities of the system.” Find an expanded online story at bit.ly/12JqpGb. editor@saanichnews.com

Salute to musicals The Palm Court Light Orchestra celebrates Hollywood’s MGM musicals at its April 16 7:30 p.m. concert at the University Centre, Farquhar Auditorium. With mezzo soprano soloist Kathryn Whitney and conductor Charles Job, the orchestra embarks on a musical journey that includes some of the greatest songs ever written. The MGM musical was a creation of producer Arthur Freed who developed lavish film sets, wonderful musical scores and combined them with the talents of Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse, Frank Sinatra, Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. From the War Years to the mid 1950s the MGM musical brought joy to thousands around the world. Starting with classics such as Meet Me in St. Louis, Easter Parade, Silk Stockings and Singin’ in the Rain, MGM musicals were a top box office draw. Tickets for The Palm Court Light Orchestra’s Over the Rainbow are available at the UVic Centre box office 250-721-8480. Go to palmcourtorchestra.com for more information.

Americas Rugby Championship will return IRB gives Langford vote of confidence Travis Paterson News staff

The biggest rugby tournament in North America is coming back to Langford for 2013. The decision to return the Americas Rugby Championship to Westhills Stadium, Oct. 11 to 19, is a glowing sign of approval from the International Rugby Board, said Rugby Canada’s general manager Mike Chu. Last fall, Rugby Canada organized and executed the ARC on six weeks notice. Argentina pulled out as hosts leaving the IRB in a bind, until Rugby Canada stepped forth to host the third running of the event. “The City of Langford was helpful in making it happen, enough to give IRB the confidence in us to do it again,” Chu said. Argentina has won the ARC in all three years of its existence. U.S.A. and Uruguay also participated last year. Argentina defeated Canada in the final, in front of a sold out crowd of 3,255 fans. ARC is the traditional 15-a-side rugby union format. This year’s

tournament will follow the same format, with Canada and three other teams playing three roundrobin games over eight days. The Argentina Jaguars, that country’s national team development squad, will once again be the favourite against non-professional sides from the U.S.A. and Canada. Argentina’s premier national team plays at the same time in The Rugby Championship, against three of the world’s premier rugby union countries, the New Zealand All Blacks, South Africa Springboks and Australia Wallabies. Uruguay and Chile face each other soon in a deciding match for the fourth and final berth at the ARC. “It’s an important part of our development,” said 15s coach Kieran Crowley. “Those players who make the ARC are pushing for positions on the national team for the November test tour.” Players on Canada’s ARC squad are selected from Rugby Canada’s regional competition, the Canadian Rugby Championship, which runs over the course of the sum-

Competing in the CRC are the Pacific Tyees (B.C. Bears), Prairie WolfPack, Ontario Blues and Atlantic Rock. Blues player Tyler Ardron excelled at the CRC last year and was named captain of Canada at the ARC. The choice turned out to be a good one, as Ardron made an immediate impact when he ran back an intercepted try for Can-

ada’s first try of the tournament against Uruguay. Ardron’s since been a regular on the back row of the Canadian 15s team, having played on Canada’s 15s team that made the November tour to England. He also plays for the national sevens team. “Right now our focus is to retain core status (on the IRB Sevens world series),” Ardron said.

Canada’s sevens team is currently 11th in the IRB Sevens World Series points standings. Only the top 12 teams retain core status to play in all nine of the tournaments. The final two sevens fixtures of the year are Scotland on May 4 and 5 and England May 11 and 12. Then it’s back to 15s for Ardron, who usually wears No. 8, in the middle of the back row of Canada’s scrum. Canada will compete in the Pacific Nations Cup for the first time and hosts matches May 25 vs. U.S.A. in Edmonton, June 5 vs. Fiji in Ottawa and June 8 vs. Tonga in Kingston. The summer schedule continues as Canada plays Ireland in June and then battles the U.S.A. in a two-game qualifier for the 2015 Rugby World Cup in August. On Saturday, Ardron will make his CDI Premier League debut playing for the James Bay Athletic Association as that team looks to secure a playoff spot in a road game versus the Bayside Sharks of South Surrey.

Trials a chance to find missing pieces Travis Paterson News staff

Training season is underway for the Victoria Highlanders FC men’s Professional Development League team. The majority of the squad is already in place for the 2013 PDL season but head coach Steve Simonson is not against adding players where he can. Night sessions were held at the Pacific Institute for Sports Excellence earlier this week but the trials period will carry on throughout the month, he said. “Tryout period is to let people know we are looking, but we’re not looking for anything in particular. If anything, we are open to someone from

outside of our scouting network.” The roster’s basic components are intact, with the Hughes brothers, Tyler and Jordie, as well as a core of UVic Vikes, Andrew and Adam Ravenhill, Thomas Mallette, Gavin Barrett, Sam Prette, Craig Taylor, Gareth Langdon and Elliot Mitrou, the Highlanders starting goalkeeper from 2012. “With us trying to use local players, and UVic being the local school, there’s a real overlap. But we’re not just another version of the Vikes,” Simonson said. The amateur-status Highlanders use many NCAA and CIS players. A few players have flown in from Europe and the U.S.A. looking for spots but no signings have been made to date. sports@vicnews.com

Rugby playoffs loom for CDI Premier League

The UVic Vikes men’s rugby team has a challenging finish ahead if it will crack the CDI Premier League playoffs. The Vikes (5-6-1) came up with a big win on Saturday, upsetting the No. 4 seed Meralomas 40-27. Luke McCloskey scored a hat trick of tries for the Vikes. This Saturday the Vikes face a tough opponent against the No. 3-seed Capilano (8-4), the defending Rounsefell Cup B.C. champs in North Vancouver. The first place Burnaby Lake rugby club (9-3) has won eight matches in a row and visits the No. 5-seed Castaway Wanderers (5-6-1) at Windsor Park on Saturday.

Kickoff for CW vs. Burnaby Lake is 2:45 p.m. The No. 2-seed James Bay Athletic Association (8-4) looks to get back on track after dropping a surprise 39-12 loss to the No. 7-seed UBC Old Boy Ravens (3-7-2) last week. The Bays visit the No. 8 (last place) Bayside Sharks in Surrey.

Vikes, Velox host premier women’s rugby matches

The UVic Vikes women’s rugby team (1-3) host the top-team in the Adidas Women’s Premiership as Coquitlam’s United Rugby Club (4-1) visit Saturday. Kick off is 11:30 a.m. at Wallace Field. Just a stone’s throw away at Velox field the second-place Velox Valkyries (3-1) are home to thirdplace Simon Fraser University (3-1), also at 11:30 a.m.

Four Vikes listed to national hockey team

Former UVic Vikes Thea Culley, Dani Hennig and Kaitlyn Williams and current Vike Kathleen Leahy have been named to the national women’s team. Also named to the squad is Maddie Secco (Stanford). Saanich’s Paige Norris was named to the senior development squad.

Sooke swapped for Saskatoon Travis Paterson News staff

Olympian Brent McMahon and elite Ironman triathlon athlete Sara Gross were among a handful of top triathletes to kick off the 2013 Subaru Western Triathlon Series on Wednesday. The series of half-Ironman, Olympic and sprint distance triathlons is coming back bigger and better than ever despite losing its marquee event, the nationally televised Sooke Triathlon. “Brent will be back, so will elite athletes the likes of Sara Gross and Magali Tisseyre, and we’re expanding into Saskatchewan this year, a very big move for us,” said series race director Paul Regensburg. “Saskatoon (on June 30) is very excited to have us and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.” That race is based out of Pike Lake Provincial Park and parlays country roads and a downtown finish in the River Valley. The series also breaks new

ground in 2013 by adding the “first-ever” Western Canadian High School Championships as part of the Shawnigan Lake Triathlon on May 26. Triathlon is a growing sport with middle- and high schoolaged students, as many track and field athletes double as youth club triathletes. “This will give those athletes 12 to 19 years old a chance to represent their school, and open Shawnigan up to the youth” Regensburg said. Shawnigan is Canada’s only long-distance triathlon in May, and falls handily within the

Triathlon distances n Half Ironman: Swim 1.9km, bike 90km, run 21km. n Olympic: Swim 1.5km, bike, 40km, run 10km. n Sprint: Swim 500m, bike 20km, run 5km. n Super Sprint: Swim 500m, bike 10km, run 4km.

school calendar. From Shawnigan Lake, the series returns to Elk Lake for the Saunders Victoria Triathlon on June 16, before the inaugural Subaru Saskatoon Triathlon. Without the Sooke race, which was terminated mostly due to the challenging logistics of using a long stretch of Highway 14, the series now has a noticeable gap from July 14 in Vancouver to Sept. 7 in Banff. On the plus side, the Sooke race will no longer fall within the same two-week window as Ironman Canada, which moves to Whistler for the first time on Aug. 25. Ironman athletes have long relied on Subaru Western Triathlon Series events as part of their training and the timing and location of Victoria and Vancouver are ideal once again, Regensburg said. Also new, the Subaru Vancouver Triathlon will act as the Long Distance National Championships for 2013 through to 2015. See triseries.ca. sports@vicnews.com

1954 Chevrolet Tourliner:

Right out of the ‘50s with today’s technology Russ Moen’s camper truck gets so much attention at car shows he has to hide it so he and his wife can look at other people’s rides. It has received awards at every show ALYN EDWARDS since the amazing CLASSIC highway home was RIDES completed in 2010. No wonder. This eyepopping 1954 Chevrolet cab over engine truck from Vancouver Island took five years to build with an estimated 6,000 hours spent by the Port Alberni industrial electrician and a lot of help from his friends. He calls it the mothership because it has so much modern technology. “It’s not the type of vehicle you just get in and go. There is lots to check out to get up and running, like a new motorhome,” Russ says. Some of the features of this handbuilt rig that is used to travel long distances and stay in at car shows

include: • Modified motorhome chassis • Re-engineered Cummins diesel with 400 horsepower and 800 ft lb. Torque coupled to automatic overdrive transmission for maximum fuel economy • Full air ride suspension. • High output stereo, three rear

view cameras, heated seats, air conditioning, leather upholstery • Camper made from aluminum with fibreglass rear fenders • Birchwood interior with cherry trim and teak floor with soft surfaces in dark saddle leather • Diesel stove, refrigerator, shower,

toilet, rear air conditioning, inverter, flat screen TV, LED lighting. • Carries 70 gallons of fuel and 70 gallons of fresh water. Russ Moen’s concept was to build his Tourliner like it came out of the 1950s but with today’s technology hidden beneath the body and coachwork. The camper cues came from the aerodynamic aluminum Bowlus Road Chief travel trailers of the mid 1930s. He flew to California with a list of leads on trucks and found two identical 1954 Chevrolet cab over engine vehicles. A newspaper ad led Russ to Ukiah where he purchased the truck he would eventually use as the basis for the Tourliner. He bought another truck just like it in pieces on an old naval base called Rough and Ready Island near Stockton from an owner who had been collecting old vehicles for decades. Russ is no newcomer to building and restoring special interest vehicles. Others include a 1955 Chevrolet with a

454 LS7 engine; stock 1973 Camaro Z28 and 1966 Corvette convertible with a 425 horsepower 427 cubic inch engine; custom 1957 Chevrolet hardtop with full Corvette suspension and running gear. His current ride is a 1934 Ford three-window coupe hot rod with a 383 cubic inch engine and six speed manual transmission. He credits friends at R&R Boat Refit for advice and assistance in building the Tourliner’s wood interior, Lars Jorgensen of Harbourview Collision for final paint, Malcolm Cross at Nanaimo’s Harbour City Diesel for engine work and Mark LaTrace of Miracle Upholstery in Black Creek for the leather interior. Russ agrees that he could have bought a brand new motorhome for less money and no effort. But he likes to do as much as possible himself. “Believe it or not, my wife and I are not campers. I built the Tourliner for long distance travel and so my wife and I could go to car shows in comfort.” His trophy case is filled with awards from shows all over Vancouver Island, Washington and California. Among the most notable is the People’s Choice Award at Penticton’s Peach City Cruisein and the Art Morrison Builders’ Choice Award at the Goodguys show in Puyallup, Wa. There’s always a lineup of people 20 deep waiting to look into the vintage camper truck at shows. “It is entertaining to watch the reaction of people checking it out as they are not sure what to make of it,” he says. “I am frequently asked if it is a restoration or a custom build.” The Tourliner will be a feature

Bantam bike gives owner a miracle BY JAMES HAMILTON

In 1960 I bought a second-hand BSA Bantam motorcycle, the D5 model with the 150cc two-stroke engine, and dual seat. The next summer holiday was to Norway. We rode the 180 kilometres to Newcastle and took the overnight ferry to Bergen, toured the fjord country’s youth hostels, drove another 400 km and returned home. In all this the bike gave no trouble – except to refuse one hill. The sign at the bottom said, in plain Norwegian, “Engage first gear.” One look at the hill, really quite a respectable mountain, made translation unnecessary. Even the bike understood, for after a mere 50 metres it coughed itself to a standstill. The solution was to send the passenger on ahead with a little luggage and, after the bike had recovered its wind, we resumed the climb with the bike chugging wearily in first gear and me walking at its side pushing as much as I was able. We all rested at the top.

Later that summer, the real highlight for that Bantam was on a weekend trip. Saturday’s 200 km to Wigton was uneventful. Returning home the next day we looked in on friends and were pressed to stay for supper; we had plenty of time and were only 60 km from home. Since the bike would be safer off the street, I “In all this the bike gave no trouble – except to refuse one hill.” –James Hamilton wheeled it to their driveway. Turning and pushing the front wheel over the high-ish curb caused a click and the front wheel fell against the fork. Once up on its stand it was obvious to our host and myself (neither of us mechanically minded) that the spindle was broken just inside the fork. How would we get home on a Sunday night>? No hope of a repair shop being open; public transport was meagre at best. After tea we returned to view the bike and consider our fate. The first

instinct was to find a pistol and put the poor Bantam out of its misery. Alternatively, tighten everything and hope – remember, I’m no mechanic – and give it a try. We wheeled it out into the street, carefully, checked that the wheel was still upright, and I set off with a wobble or three. Then the miracle happened. With slightly increased speed the wheel settled true, running smoothly. It was now functioning as a gyroscope and if I could keep it going at some minimum speed or more, our problem was solved. We relaxed, enjoyed supper and the company until it was late enough for Sunday evening traffic to diminish. Then, on quiet, nearly deserted roads we could travel home, slowly but safely, without stopping – not even at red lights! Next day, after work, I took the two parts of the spindle to our local bike repair shop. A replacement was found together with a sympathetic storeman who asked for the details – how, when and where. His response to the answers was a long, low whistle.

THE ALL-NEW 2014

Also suitAble for fAmilies thAt

never leAve the city limits. The XV Crosstrek Hybrid is Subaru’s first entry in the hybrid segment.

Subaru introduces its first production hybrid model Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

Subaru Canada, Inc. has announced the brand’s first-ever production hybrid vehicle, the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid. Based on the popular XV Crosstrek crossover introduced for 2013, the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid model will arrive in Subaru dealerships during the fourth quarter of 2013. In developing its first-ever hybrid, Subaru chose one of its popular, go-anywhere crossover vehicle platforms. As a result, the new XV Crosstrek Hybrid offers all the capability and versatility of the gasoline-powered XV Crosstrek. The Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid combines a 2.0-litre Subaru “boxer” engine with a 13.4-horsepower electric motor that’s integrated into the Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission.  A 100-volt, 13.5-kilowatt nickel-

metal hydride battery is located under a revised rear floor area and the engine uses an integrated starter/generator for the automatic start/stop feature. The compact hybrid system weighs just 95 kilograms and places the electric motor just behind the transmission and in front of the continuously variable transfer clutch. With the addition of all the new features, the XV Crosstrek Hybrid weighs approximately 136 kilograms more than the gasoline engine XV Crosstrek. Under light acceleration, the Subaru-engineered hybrid system uses the electric motor for initial vehicle acceleration and then starts the gasoline engine once underway. The electric motor can also provide motor assist for acceleration in parallel with the gasoline engine and an EV mode will operate the vehicle in certain low-speed situations.

The completely redesigned 2014 Subaru Forester puts the sport back in SUV. With a roomier interior, more cargo space and a new power rear gate†, you’ll be ready for any journey. Combine all that with Subaru’s legendary symmetrical full-time AWD and X-MODE™‡, a newly developed system that offers added control, and even the most brutal road conditions will feel welcoming. Plus, the 2014 Forester is more fuel-efficient than ever. The only question left is where to go next.

2.5L naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine producing 170 hp or a 2.0L direct-injection twin-scroll turbocharged 4-cylinder engine producing 250 hp.

ALL-NEW X-MODE™‡

MORE CARGO SPACE

The technology of X-MODE™ takes command of the engine, transmission, AWD, brakes and other components to help you safely navigate through bad roads, slippery surfaces and even the steepest hills with maximum confidence.

Island Flyboard jets into Victoria’s Inner Harbour Making its West Coast debut at the Victoria Harbour Boat Show, the Flyboard – the coolest new jet-ski accessory to hit the international market – is sure to amaze guests of all ages. Pro instructors from Victoria’s own Island Flyboard – Vancouver Island’s exclusive dealer of the Flyboard – will take to the sea and sky with their jaw-dropping tricks and acrobatic stunts during three daily performances. They’ll also be on hand to answer questions and get guests suited up and on their way to demoing or purchasing their own Flyboard.

Originally developed by professional jet-ski racer Franky Zapata, the Flyboard is a watersports apparatus that allows propulsion underwater and in the air, much like a powered wakeboard. The intuitive equipment relies on a system of hand and foot propulsion nozzles combined with personal balance for optimized stability and flight precision. In just under 20 minutes, users can master the basics with an instructor. Once you’ve found your balance, you’re on your way to soaring through the water like a dolphin or gliding through the air like a bird.

Island Flyboard jets into Victoria’s Inner Harbour Making its West Coast debut at the Victoria Harbour Boat Show, the Flyboard – the coolest new jet-ski accessory to hit the international market – is sure to amaze guests of all ages. Pro instructors from Victoria’s own Island Flyboard – Vancouver Island’s exclusive dealer of the Flyboard – will take to the sea and sky with their jaw-dropping tricks and acrobatic stunts during three daily performances. They’ll also be on hand to answer questions and get guests suited up and on their way to demoing or purchasing their own Flyboard.

Originally developed by professional jet-ski racer Franky Zapata, the Flyboard is a watersports apparatus that allows propulsion underwater and in the air, much like a powered wakeboard. The intuitive equipment relies on a system of hand and foot propulsion nozzles combined with personal balance for optimized stability and flight precision. In just under 20 minutes, users can master the basics with an instructor. Once you’ve found your balance, you’re on your way to soaring through the water like a dolphin or gliding through the air like a bird.

Redesigned Hyundai Equus offers drivers refined interior, comfort and technology Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

The refreshed 2014 Hyundai Equus flagship luxury sedan features significant enhancements in the areas of interior design, vehicle dynamics, material selection, driver technology displays, and advanced safety features, meaning the Equus will continue to challenge leading luxury nameplates from around the world. For 2014, the exterior of the Equus has been modified to convey a more modern premium image, starting with a dynamic new 19-inch turbine-blade alloy wheel design in a polished silver finish. The front fascia has been redesigned with thinner chrome grille bars and new lower fascia opening strakes in place of the former chrome accents. New LED fog lamps are now standard.

The 2014 Equus has been engineered to offer an interior with the features design, and premium materials expected of a world-class flagship luxury sedan. The entire instrument panel and centre stack have been redesigned with more premium materials and a new layout with improved ergonomics, with new button iconography providing quicker and easier feature recognition. A new rear console and button layout allows rear-seat passengers to easily control audio media, the HVAC system, and seating functions. In place of the former single rear-seat monitor in Ultimate models, rear passengers can now enjoy dual high-resolution 9.2-inch video screens mounted in the front seatbacks. In addition to watching movies, rear

Hyundai’s flagship model, the Equus, has received many enhancements for 2014.

passengers can even search for points of interest using the vehicle’s navigation system and upload directions directly to the driver’s navigation display or HUD. The 2014 Equus is powered by Hyundai’s award-winning Tau 5.0-litre GDI V8 engine produced 429 hp and 376 lb/ft of torque. The Equus’ 5.0-litre V8 engine is coupled to Hyundai’s eightspeed transmission with Shiftronic manual mode for effortless acceleration and impressive overall efficiency.

Passengers breathe cleaner air inside a Volvo than outside Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

The interior environment in a Volvo should also be safe for hypersensitive people. Volvo Car Group’s systematic work in this area has resulted in the Swedish Asthma and Allergy Association now recommending seven Volvo models: the S80, V70, XC70, XC60, S60, V60 and V40. Up to 45 per cent of the population in the industrialized world is suffering

from some form of allergy or hypersensitivity. More than 10 per cent has asthma. One of the reasons for the dramatic increase since the 1950s are air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, ground-level ozone, particulates and pollen. Work with the interior environment can be divided into two main areas: air quality and contact allergies. To counteract contact allergies, the amount of nickel released from metallic

surfaces is minimized and the leather is tanned in a chrome-free process. What is known as the ‘new car smell’ is actually low levels of emissions from materials. The levels do not present a danger but on hot days, concentrations that irritate hypersensitive people may occur. These substances are quickly vented out of the cabin. Volvo Cars’ objective is to avoid these odours completely. The test program also includes

evaluations by Volvo Cars Nose Team, whose members smell different objects to determine if their odour is acceptable or too strong. The panel evaluates the smell from the interior trim items on a scale from 1 to 6, on which ‘1’ indicates ‘Not noticeable’ and ‘6’ is ‘Unbearable’. To secure approval, the test ranking must not exceed ‘3’, which is ‘Clearly noticeable, but not yet unpleasant’.
